Elections

are on in

THE VOICE

Only two of the county's
four possible municipal
elections will be held this
year, as City Commission
seats up for a vote in two
cities failed to produce any
challengers.
That means Altamonte
Springs City Commissioners
Gardner Hussey and Sarah
Reece and Lake Mary City
Commissioners George *F.
Duryea and Jo Ai-, Lucarelli
will get a free pass for re-
election in November. But
Longwood and Oviedo have
a full set of challengers.
Qualifying for Oviedo's
races ended Aug. 24, with
one candidate conspicu-
ously missing from the list
of likely mayoral candidates
- Rob Thrift.
Thrift said that a busier
than expected schedule at
his business forced him to
decide not to run for office.

The stormwater assessment
fee proposed by Senminole
County is being met with
outrage from many of its
rural residents who could
pay as much as $100 an
acre.
A public hearing will be
held on Wednesday, Sept.
9, and Geneva Citizens
Association. President
Richard Creedon said he
expects at least 1,000 resi-
dents to come out against
the proposal.
While a typical home,
on less than an acre, would
pay about $70 a year, homes
on five acres or more are
assessed $500 to $800
under the proposed meth-
odology.
According to an Aug.
31 letter sent by County


Manager Cindy Coto,
"revised assessment calcu-
lations" will be available on
Friday, Sept. 4. These cal-
culations adjust the home-
owner's fee based on water
bodies, wetlands and natu-
ral land on the property.
"The fee is based on lot
size but things like lakes
and forest areas on prop-
erties that don't have a
house and cement are not
assessed," county spokes-
woman Angelita Streeter
said.
Creedon, who received Lar
an initial estimate of about me
$500 for his 5-acre tract,
said the revised assessment
may cut his fee in half, but
it's still unacceptable.
"They want to charge
people more money on
larger lots even though

Local firestorm over stormwater fee


S By Karen McEnany-Phillips


No one wants to pay more
taxes. In American par-
lance it's practically a four-
letter word. But thought-
ful citizens will listen to
reasonable arguments for
and against an "assess-
ment," even if it means pay-
ing more money. When a
citizen trusts that benefits
outweigh non-prohibitive
cost, when public discus-
sion is not rushed and it is
imposed within a reason-
able timeframe, citizens are
more willing to accept it
for the common good.
Unfortunately this is not
the scenario for Seminole
County's stormwater
assessment as evidenced
by the firestorm of public
outcry from unincorpo-
rated Seminole County.
As a citizen who read the
assessment correspon-
dence for our property, the
20 frequently-asked ques-
tions, and most of the Web
site information, none of
it convinces me that this
assessment needs to be


rushed into the November
tax bill, that it will directly
and proportionately ben-
efit me as a property owner,
and that the calculation
accurately represents my
fair share.
I'm sure most residents
believe that stormwater is
important, that flooding is
a concern, and that water
quality is a priority. Many
types of residents and busi-
nesses live and operate in
unincorporated Seminole
County. Each resident and
business owner has a story
about how stormwater and
water quality affect them
and how they contribute
to it.
The consultants who
drafted the assessment cal-
culation came up with a
square footage factor relat-
ing to impervious surfaces
and a resulting pollutant
factor. Although these cal-
culations get the county to
its $9.8 million dollar goal
for a stormwater fund, its
numbers fail to tell the full


story.
First, all parcels are not
created equal. Some are
manitured and maintained
with a monthly spray ser-
vice, some have buildings,
barns, and structures in
addition to a house, some
have paved driveways,
others have no sidewalk
or paved road. Some have
livestock, others domestic
animals. Many have cho-
sen to live in the rural area
with only a house, a shed
or patio and the remaining
land is wild, maybe even
wetlands. Many properties
have streams, rivers and
water bodies on or adjacent
to them.
Second, land means
something to us. In 2006
Genevans and fellow rural
citizens fought against the
possibility of changing
rural zones from five- to
three-acre lot minimums
and successfully crushed
the specter of increasing
density.
This brings me to flood-
ing and impervious sur-
faces. The flooding we
experienced along the St.
Johns river in 2004 and
2008 reached historic pro-
portions, and according to
official records exceeded
the highest levels previous-
ly reached in 1924. I believe
blame should be placed


in the laps of Seminole
County officials who
approved dense develop-
ment over the past decade
without concern for the
consequences. Exactly how
does the county plan to
curb this flooding? It seems
pretty ironic - nay hypo-
critical - that the county's
plan now is to lecture and
"educate" residents on
stormwater management
and water quality, and
charge them to listen at
$100 per acre. It's an expen-
sive therapy session, com-
missioners.
Finally did I miss a dis-
cussion over the past year
about an impressive storm-
water plan that would
involve a future assess-
ment? I read little benefit
discussion in the storm-
water assessment mate-
rial. The communication
seemed driven to explain
the calculation and justify
the distribution. It sounds
noble to protect the health
and welfare of citizens
from polluted stormwa-
ter, but what exactly are
these capital projects, and
will they prevent me from
wading through hip-deep
water or rowing my canoe
down my dirt driveway to
my truck parked on my dirt
road?
Unlike the county com-


missioners, most of us
aren't getting a raise this
year and just feel fortunate
to have our jobs and our.
homes.
Current economic con-
ditions underscore the
fact that citizens don't like
rushed legislation with
weak explanations and
generic benefits. We don't
accept it from Washington
and we don't accept it from
Seminole County.
Please let all the com-
missioners know your
thoughts on this issue. Call
or e-mail them whether
or not you can attend the
public hearing, which is
Wednesday, Sept. 9 at 6 p.m.
in the Seminole County
Services Building, Room
1028, at 1101 E. First St. in
Sanford.

Relax in country style, near the big city


I was remarking to a friend
the other day about feeling
that Oviedo was my home-
town, with old and new
mixed in the living area of
the city limits. I have 'lived
in many cities on the East
Coast from Florida to the
New England area and no
place is quite as countrified
and cosmopolitan as this
spot here and no place else
can you make friends that
really stay.
I popped out the other
afternoon to run a few
errands and planned to be
back in 45 minutes. Hah!
The quick trip to the gro-
cery was fine until I ran into
several old friends - one
I haven't seen in years -
then it was off to the bank
and another visit with more
chatting to one of my favor-
ite tellers and a few others
in line. Last but not least
was a stop at the green gro-
cer, Brian Thomas. There I


caught up on his and his
mother's vacation trip, saw
a few more friends, and
chatted about veggies and
dinner menus with Mr.
Rooster and friends, add-
ing to the entertainment
of the quick trip to run my
errands. I was gone for two
hours and had a delightful
time and would not have
traded the trip for anything.
Maybe the little things in life
mean so much more. Where
else can you do this run-
ning around in your town
- not getting all dolled up
in your go-to meeting attire
- and be with friends? My
mom used to say, "The only
way to have a friend is to be
one," and I guess after living
in this town for 22 years, I
did make a few wonderful
friends and acquaintances.
Coming up. is Labor Day
weekend. Enjoy, relax and
have fun. Just be careful
driving or perhaps swim-


ming.
On Friday, Sept. 11, the
Oviedo Woman's Club will

FEE I Dallari recoils from fee that would charge rural landowners much more


-< continued from the front page

there's no more impervious area,"
he said.
Impervious area includes drive-
ways, buildings, parking lots, streets
and any surface that prevents "quick
and natural absorption" of rainwa-
ter. The money collected from the
fee would go toward maintaining
the county's stormwater ditches,
pipes and canals, the county's lakes,
rivers and streams, and for capi-


tal improvement projects for flood
control and water restoration.
All seven of Seminole County's cit-
ies already have stormwater assess-
ment districts. Unincorporated
county residents already pay" for
stormwater management, but in
their ad valorem taxes. The assess-
ment would be separate from their
property tax bill, and is based on
the size of their property.
County Commissioner Bob
Dallari said the fee should be based


solely on impervious area, not fac-
toring in the total area of the prop-
erty. He said larger properties are
*better at absorbing stormwater and
should not carry an exponentially
larger fee.
"It's the equation that doesn't
make sense," Dallari said.
So far, Commissioners Dallari and
Brenda Carey have voiced oppo-
sition to the fee. The other three
commissioners have not taken a
side.


Creedon said he's not against a
stormwater assessment fee, but he
is against what's proposed, and he's
going to be sure the county knows
about it on Sept. 9.
"The county has made the [meth-
odology] unintelligible, and peo-
ple don't know how they're being
taxed," Creedon said. "It needs to be
killed and needs to go back to the
drawing board."


MALL I Loss of anchor doesn't deter merchants


< continued from the front page

request for comment.
Jim Pridemore, owner of Ashton
Photography and leader of the mall's mer-
chants association, said losing an anchor
is always a big blow to a mall, but it's not
going to slow them down in their mission
to hold events there that connect with the
community.
"We're gonna stay the course," Pridemore
said, "and if the Oviedo Marketplace doesn't
have all the big anchors we'd like, we still
want it to be a great place to bring the fam-
ily."
News of the move didn't surprise Oviedo
City Councilman Dominic Persampiere,
who said the new location will be more vis-
ible from Red Bug Lake Road.
"The location just fits their bill,"
Persampiere said. "It's always sad when you
see something leave the mall."
Bed Bath & Beyond is one of four anchor
stores at the ailing mall, which is owned by


General Growth Properties. The company
is currently undergoing a restructuring
under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
The company also owns the Altamonte
Mall.
Some within the city and the local
chamber of commerce have discussed add-
ing commercial office space - such a large
space likely could accommodate a plan for
that.
Persampiere declined to speculate on
how the space could be filled, but did say
the mall and its tenants have the support
of the Oviedo City Council and the Winter
Springs City Commission.
"The mall will do what they want with
the property," he said. "That's up to the
mall.... We're doing everything we can do
. to help."
Linens 'n Things closed all of its stores
last year, including the Oviedo location.
In February, it announced its debut as an
online-only retailer, found at lnt.com.


In an article titled "Candidates bff to the races in Oviedo" published Aug. 7, and in an online article titled
"Seminole County elections heat up" posted Aug. 28, Franklin Perez was incorrectly classified as a con-
gressional candidate. He is a candidate for the Florida Legislature's House of Representatives.

MATT MORRISON
GUEST F i-''.k

Parents are packing some
extra equipment in their stu-
dents' backpacks this year.
Hand sanitizers and tissues
are finding a comfortable
spot next to the extra pencils
and that freshly ironed pair
of gym shorts. While H1N1,
formerly known as swine
flu, no longer conjures up
images of people cowering


against the plague, health
officials warn that it should
still be taken seriously, and
area schools are taking no
chances.
In letters - sent home
to parents last week both
Orange and Seminole coun-
ties put parents on alert: If
your kid is sick with the flu,
don't send him to school.
"We started working on
this a long time ago, and
we are well prepared," said


Katherine Marsh, spokes-
woman for Orange County
Public Schools.
Working in conjunction
with the Orange County
Health Department, Orange
schools notified teachers
and parents to watch for
signs of the common flu,
such as fever, aches, chills
and sore throat.
On the Seminole County
Web site, www.scps.us,
school officials posted
swine flu information the
Thursday before school
began.
"We're just putting
everything there for par-
ents," said Regina Klaers,
spokeswomanforSeminole
County Public Schools.
"We'll keep it there as
long as people need infor-
mation."
It's not unusual for
schools to be taking
such precautions. Similar
advice is given during any
flu season, but this year's
flu came early, said Dain
Weister, spokesman for
the Orange County Health
Department.
Weister said schools will
not be testing students for
swine flu as results typi-
cally take several days to
come back, but with swine
flu being the most preva-
lent flu strain these days, it's
safe to assume, he said, that
any student coming under
the weather has HIN1.
"There's not a lot we
can do except stopping the
spread," he said.
This means ratcheting
up the schools' hygiene
education. Students are
advised to cough into a tis-
sue or the crux of their arm
- not into their hands,
which helps spread germs
through touch - and using


I:-. .. ,LP , ,F ISTOCKPHOTO.COM

hand sanitizers or sanitary
wipes after every cough or
sneeze. And because HIN1
is transferred from per-
son to person, the health
department recommends
that students and teachers
stay at least six feet away
from any person displaying
flu-like symptoms.
Of course, anyone with
the flu shouldn't be hanging
around, Weister said. People
showing serious signs, such
as fever, will be sent home.
The health department is
asking parents not to send
their children back until 24
hours after a fever has sub-
sided without medication.
Still, it's no sign to panic,
said Jennifer Roberts, a
spokeswoman with Florida
Hospital.
"Generally, as swine flu
goes, [people are] being
referred to hospitals, they're
being referred to their pri-
mary physicians."
If caught early, H 1N can
be treated with medication,
just like any other flu, she
said.
According to Dr. Vincent
Hsu, an infectious disease
specialist with Florida
Hospital, people will start
to feel ill between two to
three days following an
infection. Because HIN1
has similar symptoms to
that of the common flu,
the two are indistinguish-
able unless tested. However,
swine flu can be easily treat-
ed at home, Hsu said, and
people should see their doc-
tor for medication if the flu
is sever.
"The vast majority of
[H1N1] cases will get better
on its own," Hsu said.
"Obviously now this is a
big time when we have to be
on our guards."

What is your job search strategy?
Do you have one? Are you throw-

doing every online application you
see?
You only need one company to
offer you a job to have a successful


end to your search. The question is,
how do you make a plan and then
work the plan?
If you are seeking an entry-level
job, you can do a two-pronged
approach. One is to look at the
Web sites for the companies you
would like to work for and do their
online applications. The other is to
go in person door-to-door or'to job
fairs to meet potential employers.
Keep a list of.whom you apply with
and follow up after completing
applications.


For mid-level to professional
positions you MUST be computer-
literate these days. Keep folders in
your e-mail, target your resumes
to match job openings, review
Web sites and news publications
for potential openings. Use social
media sites and Google to become
aware of jobs. Connect with your
networks to see if anyone might be
willing to recommend you.

Letters to



Stop the double taxation


Have you noticed how every govern-
mental entity employs different ploys
to squeeze money out of the pockets
of citizens despite the actual economic
stranglehold affecting every way of life
in our country today? It is an art that is
effectively parlayed into income in the
millions and politicians use it wisely.
Take for example this planned water
rate increase in the city of Winter
Springs. If citizens attended the City
Commission public hearing meetings
they could have heard the mayor on at
least two occasions clearly state that
the water in Winter Springs is abundant
and plentiful, and he is correct, but the
reason for this abundance is the fact
that bottle water sales in Publix have
increased over the years.
Why then are the residents of the city
being asked to sacrifice economically
at a time when the nation's economic
standing is a perplexity leading toward
economic chaos? What will it take to
make these individuals realize that
they are treating citizens like sacrificial
lambs? Do our residents know that there
is a tax on water collected every month
in addition to the other collectibles?
Where is this money collected each
month of every year going? No mill-
age increase is the smoke screen used
to blind each citizen. However you will
learn they will always find a ploy to fill
the coffers in order to have money avail-


able for unreasonable expenses.
The other side of the coin sustains the
prophecy that the present Commission
is taking us back to the pre-1996 admin-
istrations. They seem to be sliding down
a slippery slope without an end in sight.
It seems to be the wish of some to
turn our city into a business megapoly.
The Town Center code is slowly being
watered to the point where it will be a
high-class strip mall, on-street parking
(a safety issue due to the narrow streets
in our community) is being reversed,
projects are being approved without
the consideration of compatibility
that leads to their incessant search for
changes and the present debate over
HOA rules. In the 50 years of the city's
existence the residents have been well-
satisfied and their property values have
been protected.
Now because of a few dissenters, who
have every right, and because of poli-
tics, we are looking to undo every major
improvement to a satisfying way of life.
We need to evaluate these represen-
tatives not on friendship, emotion or
relationship but on their response to the
majority of the people that pay the bills.
The democratic way of government has
not ceased to exist.
