Employee

clinic

could

save city

millions

ISAAC BABCOCK

With health care talks
booming nationwide, one
city is looking locally to pro-
vide inexpensive care for its
employees. And it's a trend
that could be spreading.
"From the model they
gave us it could be a way to
save money on health costs,"
Councilman Keith Britton
said of the presentation by
Crowne Consulting Group.
The group had presented a
plan to build an employee
health clinic that could save
more than $2.5 million in 5
years.
At Monday's Oviedo City
Council meeting a proposal

A fee that would tax landowners for stormwater buildup was killed by the Seminole County Commission on Sept. 9 after more than 500 residents arrived to protest.



School mourns coach's sudden death


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE'.'

The chants roared around
the stadium, flowing back
and forth along the dark-
ened bleachers at Winter
Springs High School on
Friday night.
Around half the packed
crowd's wrists were
wrapped in yellow and pur-
ple bands containing the
words "Win for Wenstrom".
It was a win the Bears
needed to lift their spir-
its after a slow start and
the shocking death of
head football coach Jeff
Wenstrom at only 45 years
old.
"We won't go any
moment without remem-
bering Jeff every single
opportunity we have to
step on this field," interim
head coach Matt Hesselbart
said.


Friday night Winter
Springs' faculty, students
and fans came together to
do just that, with a cere-
mony before the game to
honor Wenstrom, a long-
time coach in the area who
was diagnosed with termi-
nal esophageal cancer on
Aug. 4 and died only five
weeks later.
Though some talked
about wanting to garner
a first win for their ail-
ing coach, one that would
not come Friday night, it
already had months before.
In his debut as the Bears'
head coach in the spring-
time jamboree, he gave his
team a 7-0 victory before
sending them satisfied into
a long hot summer.
Only a week before his
players returned to fall prac-
tice, Wenstrom received a
devastating diagnosis that
would change the team for-

Coach Jeff Wenstrom spent half a lifetime inspiring athletes on the field and stu-
dents in the classroom. The Winter Springs football coach died of cancer Sept. 8.


ever. Though he'd openly
longed to return in the
spring, he wouldn't coach
again before succumbing
Sept. 8.
He leaves behind his wife
Melissa, who is expecting a
son on Feb. 24, plus daugh-


ter Gina from a previous
marriage.
Winter Springs High
School is raising money to
support Wenstrom's fam-
ily and unborn baby. To
donate, contact the athletic
office at 407-320-8757.

Homeless kids on the rise in Seminole


KAREN McENANY-PHILLIPS
THE VOICE

John was tired during science class
this morning. He didn't finish his
history assignment and his grumpy
mood almost started a fight on
the school bus. The fourth-grader
didn't fall asleep until after mid-
night, because his bed is the living
room couch in a home with people
he barely knows. He wondered if
anyone noticed the stains on his
T-shirt tbday. His mom lost her job
two months ago and they moved
out of their house one night. He
only took some of his clothes.
This scenario plays out among
hundreds of families, affecting
potentiallyover a thousand students
who attend school in Seminole
County. Fortunately Beth Davalos
and her Families In Transition team
come to the rescue. "Families don't
realize they have Federal rights
under Title X Part C of the No Child
Left Behind Act of 2001," Davalos
said.

Common misconceptions
One of the key misconceptions is
that homeless students only live
on the street. It also applies to stu-
dents who temporarily reside with
others due to economic hardship
or who "lack fixed, regular or ade-
quate nighttime residence" such as
a travel trailer, campground, or car.
Last year Davalos and her team
worked with nearly 700 families in
Seminole County, and have regis-
tered double the students from last
year.
A common fear is that students
have to attend school based on
where they are temporarily living.
However, the law states that chil-
dren may continue to attend their


school of origin until their home-
lessness ends or until the end of the
school year. "Parents cry when they
find out their children don't have to
change schools," Davalos said. "We
try to stabilize these families, we
help, we don't judge."

The power of partnerships
Also to the rescue is Seminole Soil
and Water Conservation District
Public Relations manager Steve
Barnes, with staff and volunteers of
the Friends of the Environmental
Studies Center in Longwood. The
ESC held a Grandparents Day fund-
raiser Saturday, Sept. 12, to collect
donations for Seminole County's
homeless students. Barnes attend-
ed a school board meeting a few
months ago and was stunned to
learn the extent of student home-
lessness. "This population used to
come from families who were living
on the edge, but now we're seeing
more middle-class families where
one or both parents have lost jobs
or the home has been foreclosed,"
Barnes said.
The ESC has a close relationship
with Seminole County students,
having hosted 100,000 students
since 1977 on its famous Mud Walk
through the park's woods and trails.
Deborah Harris of the Friends of
the ESC understands the impact of
community support after receiving
donations to keep the ESC operat-
ing when funding was cut last year.
Visitors participate in guided trail
walks, arts and crafts, and meet live
snakes, turtles, butterflies, bees, and
Otus the screech owl.

Keeping spirits high
According to Barnes and Davalos, a
new pair of shoes or a new school
outfit make a huge difference in


a student's self-esteem. Although
the threat of rain kept attendance
down on Saturday, Davalos hopes
the community will again support
Families in Transition on Saturday,
Sept. 18, by stopping at any of the
county's fire stations with dona-
tions of clothing, shoes, gift cards,
or school supplies.

Future dates:
Saturday, Sept. 18: All Seminole
County fire stations are collection
points for donations for home-
less students in Seminole County.
Wanted: gift cards for shoes, cloth-
ing, and gas; new or gently used
clothing, shoes and school supplies
Saturday, Nov. 7: Family Day for
Families in Transition held at Winter
Springs High School. 40 agencies on
hand to help Families in Transition
with assistance; job placement
assistance; childcare information;
entertainment; food.

Know your student's rights
Title X Part C
The Stewart B. McKinney
Homeless Education Assistance Act,
otherwise known as Title X Part
C of the No Child Left Behind Act
of 2001, and state law protect the
rights of homeless children and
youth to receive a free and appro-
priate public education. Nearly
everyone who is between the ages
of 5 and 21 on Sept. 1 of the school
year and has not been expelled has
the right to attend school, even if
they:
Lack fixed, regular, and adequate
nighttime residence
Share housing (due to loss or
hardship)


Live in hotels, motels, trailer
homes, campgrounds, emergency
or transitional shelters, abandoned
in hospitals
Are awaiting foster care place-
ment
Have a primary nighttime resi-
dence not designed or ordinarily
used as a regular sleeping accom-
modation
Live in cars, parks, public spaces,
abandoned buildings, bus or train
stations, or similar settings
Are an unaccompanied youth
(youth not in the physical custody
of a parent or guardian)
Are migratory children who
qualify as homeless because of their
living situation
School district responsibilities:
Schools must keep children in
the school of origin (the school
that the child or youth attended
when permanently housed or
last enrolled) to the extent feasi-
ble, except where contrary to the
wishes of the parent or guardian.
The child or youth's right to attend
their school of origin extends to the
entire duration of homelessness or
end of school year.
Schools must remove any bar-
riers that contribute to exclusion
or enrollment delay. This means
schools are required to immediate-
ly enroll children and youth experi-
encing homelessness.
Each school district must iden-
tify a Homeless Education Liaison.
Each school must post public
notice of educational rights and
youth experiencing homelessness.
Schools must ensure enrollment
with full and equal opportunity to
success in school (e.g., Head Start,
Even Start, preschool, health care,
dental, mental health, etc.).

Fall festivals are on their way


Now that school has
started, we hopefully are
all are back into the swing
of activities with all our
local organizations; which
I might add is a good thing.
I am hearing good things
about our town with all
sorts of events coming up
of which I truly intend to
keep you all apprised.
I was marking my calen-
dar yesterday for upcoming
meetings and I noticed that
the first day of autumn' is
Tuesday Sept. 22 - do you
feel cooler? At least it is
something to look forward
to and maybe ease up on
that electric bill a wee bit. I
was feeling a wee bit cool-
er with that information
when I popped over later in
the day and met my friends
from Sanford in Winter
Springs and they were chat-
ting about what a wonder-
ful two-week vacation they
have had in Alaska. They
were glad to be home but
not to the 90-degree-plus
temperatures. Oh well, we
will have to wait - patience


is virtue, so the saying goes.
Activities and events
coming up which might
interest all:
Attend a car seat check
up event as part of the
National Child Passenger
Safety Week. On Friday,
Sept. 18, Oviedo will have
certified techs available to
provide on-site child safety
seat inspections and educa-
tion from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
at the Oviedo Marketplace
Mall.
An Antique and Collect-
ible Appraisal Fair will be
held 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sat-
urday, Sept. 19 at the Com-
munity United Methodist
Church, 4921 S. U.S. High-
way 17-92, Casselberry.
Expert appraiser Kenneth
Dittman and his team will
appraise antiques and col-
lections. Cost $5 per item. If
you need more information,
please call 407-831-3777
Orlando Area Mothers
and More Spirit Night are
inviting you, family, friends
and neighbors to a "Spirit
Night" on Wednesday, Sept.


23. Come enjoy an evening
- join them at Buffalo Wild
Wings on the corner of 436
& Red Bug (in the old Don
Pablos building) between 5
and 9 p.m. for a great night
filled with wings, friends
and memories. See you
there. For more informa-
tion, please contact Regina
321-356-4267.
Fall Festival sponsored
by the Oviedo Presbyte-
rian Church, 2400 Lock-
wood Blvd. will hold its
event starting 9 a.m. on
Saturday, Sept. 26. Activities
will include craft and attic
sales, which are so popular,
food booths, bounce house
for the children and local
entertainment. Admission
is free.
We have a new and excit-
ing club in town. I know that
you shutterbugs will want to
attend. The Oviedo Photo-
graphic Club are announc-
ing their first meeting on
Monday, Sept. 21 from 7
to 9 p.m. to be held at the
Oviedo Memorial Building,
Central Street next to the
Oviedo Fire Station. All resi-
dents of our community and
the surrounding area who
are interested in photogra-
phy are welcome to join us.
Please visit our Web site at
http://www.wix.com/ovie-
dophotographic/club.
I just wanted to add that
this club started with a for-


mer resident of our area and
I think you all remember
our local "Potter" on Broad-
way, John Margerum. John
has been a resident of Ovie-
do since 1979 and I am sure
many of our local citizens
have a few of his excellent
pieces of work. The com-
mittee has now a founding
membership of 12 people.
Do come and I know lots
of you citizens are shutter-
bugs and enjoy taking pic-
tures.
I am wondering why
I get all comments... is it
because the Oviedo Market-
place mall now has a tattoo
store; are we getting to be
like Altamonte Mall? Sev-
eral ladies, myself included,
walk in the early hours of
the mall before the 10 a.m.
opening - you would not
believe the comments from
other walkers. They are
very unhappy. Is it because
that is the only clientele
that they can get to rent
a space that attracts teens?
How about a store for mid-
dle class citizens? I under-
stand that some residents
are complaining to the city.
I also understand that the
city is on the board trying
to spruce up the mall. Best
hurry! People are unhappy.
Have you walked through
the mall lately? There is
nobody but you and a few
friends. I was as there the


other day and I didn't see
but a few shoppers. And this
was close to 2 p.m. Hate to
say anything more than I
have - how about spending
a few dollars to advertise to
the public?
Big event coming up -
Biggest sale in town! The
First United Methodist
Church presents the "Whale
of a Sale" Oct. 2 and 3 King
Street, Oviedo. Best get
there early as all the good-
ies may have disappeared.
If you need more informa-
tion, call 407-365-3255.
Mark your calendars for
the Oviedo Woman's Club
"Great Day in the Coun-
try" Saturday, Nov. 14 at the
Lawton Elementary School
grounds. The event starts at
9 a.m. and will end at 4 p.m.
This is the biggest event in
town and it is the 36th year
of their event. If you need
more information, call 407-
365-9420.
A thought - "Faith is like
radar that sees through the
fog - the reality of things at
a distance that the human
eye cannot see."

Beware the wording of 'lower taxes'


F lBy Karen McEnany-Phillips


The favor of your pres-
ence is requested Tuesday,
Sept. 22, at 7 p.m. in the
Seminole County Board of
Commissioner's Chambers.
This is the final hearing on
the county budget which
now includes a millage
increase proposal from the
county. The net amount of
your taxes may or may not
be higher than last year
but you have to remember
that when real estate values
turn around, that higher
rate will be in place if this
is voted in. Keep in mind
that additional taxes will
also probably be in place
for schools, fire, water and
roads. As I said about the
stormwater issue, citizens
will consider assessments
and tax increases when
they feel it is warranted.
The question is: Do we?
Let's not bask in the


glow of what appeared to
be a victory on the storm-
water issue; let's not allow
the budget hearing to go
forward without some pub-
lic debate. Whether your
taxes are going up a little
or a lot for this year, there
are more questions to ask.
For instance: What will this
higher millage rate mean to
you when property values
rise again but inflation hits?
Will we regret the decision?
The other question is:
How much sweat and effort
was put into cutting fat and
waste from the budget? I
am hearing that there were
some proposals that were
not seriously considered. Is
the county taking the easy
way out?
When a family is strug-
gling to pay its bills and
meet its budget, the adults
can't ask their employers


for more money. They have
to do the hard work of
figuring out what to give
up knowing that some-
body is going to be disap-
pointed. If all options were
discussed and debated
and the millage increase
was the only way, then so
be it. But citizens must
hold their governments
accountable otherwise we
get what we deserve.
Don't forget the next
square dancing class for
beginners is now forming
and will begin Sunday after-
noon, Sept. 27, from 3 p.m.
to 5 p.m. Spectators are
welcome. Don Whitaker
is a talented caller and
patient teacher who just
asks that you pay attention
and refrain from swear-
ing and drinking before
or during lessons. He's
not kidding. "People need
to concentrate on what
they're doing," Whitaker
said. Contact Brenda at
Brendawhitaker51 @yahoo.
corn or call 407-349-9255.
We are in the final
stretch of preparing for
Smithsonian Museum
Day on Saturday, Sept. 26.
This will be a wonderful


event that includes the
Geneva Museum, the Ed
Yarborough Nature Center
and the Historic School,
which is turning into the
Rural Heritage Center.
Horse-drawn carriage rides
will transport folks from
the museum to the school
and is just one of many
rural traditions you will
be able to enjoy. Cracker
cuisine, blacksmith demon-
strations, jug band music,
arts and crafts, quilting,
painting, welding, pottery,
nature hikes, and exhibi-
tions are many of the won-
derful traditions that will
be showcased, not to men-
tion the dedication of the
Rural Heritage Center. All
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. right
here in Geneva.
We are still in need of
volunteers to help with the
Historic School renovation.
We are grateful for those
who have come to help
and would love to see more
of you, so please consider
stopping up at the Historic
School on Saturday and ask
what you can do. Starting
at 10 a.m., the school is
open on Saturday and any-
one can help. Sweeping,


painting, cleaning, organiz-
ing, and re-organizing - all
skills are needed. Alumni,
remember it was your
school. Help us transform it
for future generations.
Finally, we have started
the next phase of fundrais-
ing. We have received a
$15,000 grant and need to
match it with donations
and sale of commemora-
tive bricks. This money is
critical to continue the
renovation. The sooner the
building is fully functional,
the sooner it can start pay-
ing for itself with regular
events and activities.

STORMWATER I Dallari and Carey had opposed stormwater fee from the start


< continued from the front page

Commission chambers were
full and residents spilled
into the parking lot and an
overflow tent set up with
folding chairs. More than
500 people attended, wear-
ing T-shirts and wielding
signs with anti-fee phras-
es such as "Stop the rain
tax." More than 350 people
signed up to speak on the


fee.
Commissioners Bob
Dallari and Brenda Carey
had been the only ones to
voice opposition to the pro-
posal; which would charge
taxpayers depending on
the size of their property.
Some rural landowners got
preliminary estimates of as
much as $2,000.
Two weeks later, residents
received revised rates after


the county subtracted lands
in a natural state and bodies
of water out of the tracts.
The county also decided
that the maximum fee for
any single property owner
would be $420, instead of
the roughly $100 per acre.
Van Der Weide said the
proposal was still "com-
pletely flawed" and that
the county had, for the first
time, confused the public


by making so many revi-
sions to it.
"This method is wrong
and I believe the timing is
wrong," Carey agreed.
While the stormwater fee
can't be instated for this tax
year, a revision will likely be
back for the following tax
year.
"We have to address this
at some point," Carey said.
All of Seminole County's


cities currently charge a
stormwater assessment fee.
Geneva resident Rocky
Harrelson was relieved the
proposal was killed, but was
perplexed as to why the city
would pay a consultant so
much to come up with a
broken assessment system.
"We have paid or owe
the consultant $163,000 for
bogus info," he said.


CLINIC I Employee clinic idea is spreading throughout the county


< continued from the front page

to build an employee health
clinic could go through,
which could pave the way
to cutting costs and raising
healthcare standards for the
city. It's part of a broader
trend that's already catch-
ing on in Seminole County,
even before Oviedo adopts
it.


"I think you're going to
see a lot of other cities doing
it," Councilman Steve Hen-
ken said of the clinic idea,
which has already caught
the attention of the Long-
wood City Commission.
That's because the clinic
could serve as a one-stop
source for healthcare,
streamlining a process
that previously may have
required multiple trips to a


doctor, pharmacy, and calls
to insurers.
"If they get a sinus infec-
tion they can go there, be
seen, check out and they're
done with no cost out of
pocket for them," Henken
said.
The amount of cost and
cost savings in the plan was
under debate by the council
because of a large dispar-
ity in figures between those


presented by the consulting
firm and Oviedo Develop-
ment Services Director Bob
Bentkofsky. Bentkofsky
had predicted a $475,000
savings, less than one fifth
what the consulting firm
had predicted.
"The numbers were way
off," Henken said. "There
are a few details we've gotta
work out."
The idea could be pre-


to save costs

KAREN McENANY-PHILLIPS

September is National Baby Safety
Month and although infant safety is
a self-evident goal, today's parents
may be overwhelmed by complicated
technology or put off by expense. Five
point harnesses, adjustable reclining
seats, side impact protection, multi-
position seating, even cup holders
are just a few of the elements of the
2009 baby travel systems that may
dazzle and distract new parents from
safety functions.
Fortunately organizations such as
the American Red Cross, Consumer
Reports, Babies"R"Us, Stroller Strides,.
AAA, and even your local fire depart-
ment provide plenty of resources to
keep that precious cargo safe:

Stroller tips
Strollers promote mobility and inter-
action for families but are also a com-
mon mechanism of injury accord-
ing to the Pediatric Emergency Care
Journal. Lisa Druxman, founder of
Stroller Strides, a nationally fran-
chised stroller workout business,
stresses stroller safety in every aspect
of her classes. "Strollers are a neces-
sary piece of equipment, however
many parents operate them haphaz-
ardly and don't realize they can pres-
ent some dangers when they're not
properly used," Druxman said in a
press release.
Experts agree on these safety tips
for strollers:
-Use the safety belt or harness to
prevent the child from facing back-
ward and tipping the stroller - no
matter how far the trip.
-Use the brake when stopped.
-Lock collapsible strollers in place
when fully opening and folding up
- keep little ones away to avoid
pinched fingers.

-Avoid hanging excess weight on
the handle-like bags, purse, or sweater
- use the below the seat area for stor-
age.
-Never use a blanket or pillow for
extra padding - these can be suffoca-
tion hazards.
-If using a bassinet or seat attach-
ment listen for the click when attach-
ing them.
-Never leave a stroller unattended.
-Return the warranty card to be
informed of a recall.

Car seat tips
Automobile crashes continue to be a
leading cause of death of children -
1,600 deaths in 2007 and 200,000 inju-
ries, according to AAA. Orange and
Seminole Counties publish a schedule
of car seat classes and inspections at
local fire stations - most Jhy appoint-
ment through Safe Kids USA.
Matt Minnetto, the fire inspector for
the city of Sanford, said "Nine out of 10
car seats are not installed properly. The
biggest thing is they are not secured in
the car tightly. You need to put your

-If you cannot afford a car seat
contact your local Safe Kids coalition
who can direct you to local programs
-that may provide car seats at free or
reduced cost when attending classes
or at inspection locations. You do not
have to buy the most expensive car
seat; all seats must meet the Federal
Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
-Use rear-facing car seats until
the child is at least 1 year old and 20
pounds.
-Put harnesses though slots, even or
below infant's shoulders; tighten the
harness.
-Be sure the baby's head stays in
contact with the seat and the baby's
airway is open
-Read car seat instructions.
-Avoid using car seats from yard
sales, flea markets, or second-hand
stores.
-Never place a rear-facing car seat in
the front passenger seat.

Bears shut out in tough loss


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE

Winter Springs (0-2) fought
hard against Seminole (1-1),
but the crush of a tough
Seminole defense kept the
Bears out of the end zone in
a 7-0 shutout Friday night.
The Seminoles had
entered the game with a
weakened offense, and the
Bears were playing catch-
up on defense with a young
squad. Neither team could
bring its offense online to
put more than a score up
on the board, as punts went
flying and defense ruled the
gridiron.
The Bears host Lyman
at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept.
18.
Lyman (2-0) decimated
Hagerty (0-2) 38-25 last
Friday, unleashing a potent
offense yet again.


Hagerty continued its
struggle to win a game for
the first time this season,
falling to Lyman last week.
The game was an improve-
ment on the 50-14 shutout
they suffered in Week 1.
Hagerty hosts Seminole
at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept.
18.
The Oviedo Lions (1-1)
fell in a tight game against
Lake Brantley (1-1), 34-29
Friday night. The offensive
struggle ended in killed
momentum for the Lions,
who had upset Seminole
last week.
Oviedo travels to Lake
Mary (2-0), kicking off at
7:30 p.m. on Friday. Lake
Brantley hosts Lake Howell
(0-2) at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
The Silver Hawks are com-
ing off another blowout
shutout loss.

Tough defense on both sides kept scoring low in Winter Springs but the Seminoles came out on top 7-0 last Friday night.


Knights fall short of Southern Miss


ISAAC BABCOCK
('i:..E F '. '.-: , 1 * :-

The Knights have a new
starting quarterbackin Brett
Hodges, but even his passing
heroics weren't enough to
lift the University of Central
Florida football team (1-1,
0-1) from an early deficit
against the Southern Miss
Golden Eagles (2-0, 1-0).
By the time Hodges got


the ball midway through
the first quarter, the Knights
had a 14-0 scoring gap to
cover, thanks to two turn-
overs in the Knights first
three possessions, the third
ending in a punt.
Hodges worked quickly,
handing the ball to Brynn
Harvey on a series of plays
before going to the air, even-
tually marching the Knights
to the Eagles' 9-yard-line
before they were stopped


short, opting for a field goal
to cut the score to 14-3.
From that point onward
the Knights were in a con-
stant game of catch up, as
they inched closer to the
Eagles, but watched the
score slip ever farther from
their grasp.
At one point at the start
of the fourth quarter, kick-
er Nick Cattoi launched a
50-yard field goal through
the uprights, propelling the


Knights to within a touch-
down of the Eagles. The
Eagles quickly scored again,
finding the end zone when
the Knights frequentlycould
only split the uprights.
In a final effort to bring
his team within striking
distance, kick returned
Jamar Newsome raced 89
yards down the sideline
before being knocked out
of bounds at the Southern
Miss 5-yard-line. A quick


score by Rocky Ross closed
the gap to 26-19, but the
Eagles kneeled out the final
minute.
The Knights return home
at 7:30 p.m. Saturday against
Buffalo. The Bulls (1-1, 0-0
MAC) are coming off a 54-27
loss to Pittsburgh last week.
The last time the Knights
faced Buffalo in 2004 they
were blown out 48-20.

Look past the daunting stats during your job search


EMPLOYMENT

Ask

Sandi


I saw on Twitter today a "tweet" by
a job-seeker who has been unem-
ployed 120 days, received 57 rejec-
tions, and had three phone inter-
views, three in-person interviews,
and zero offers.


The bureau of labor statistics
is saying the average job search is
now 22.5 weeks (as of May). This is
quite a bit of time, especially when
unemployment insurance runs 26
weeks.
What these numbers say is that
if you are job-searching, you are
not alone. It can be quite a daunt-
ing task these days. This is a good
time to take an inventory of your-
self and re-focus.
Did you love your job? Did you
even like it? Were you surprised to


lose it or were you relieved? What
are you passionate about? Is now
a good time to go to school and
train for something new? Who do
you know who can help you? Do
you have the right resume? Do you
need coaching to get back into the
game?
All of these questions will help
guide and lead you to your next
position. I encourage you to really
take a look in the mirror and find a
plan for your next career move.
If you need additional help with


your search, please call or e-mail
me - I'm glad to assist.
Until next time,
- Sandi

Letters to



Let's progress together


Dear friends and neighbors:
First let me say how proud I am
to have represented you for the last
four years and of all we accomplished
together. Since being elected in 2005
my Oviedo City Council colleagues and
I have made it a priority to make this
city a leader in Central Florida. I am
proud to say that this summer, Oviedo
was recognized by Money Magazine
& Relocate America as a Top 100
American city to live in. This recogni-
tion in some part comes from the fact
that over the past four years, the City
Council has put forth an effort to cut
taxes and streamline government. We
have reduced spending while keeping
your service levels high. We have also
maintained the ever important finan-
cial reserve and have paved many of
the city's roads.
I have consulted with many of you
over the last few years, and your good
advice has been a major factor in our
success. We have been leaders in water
conservation with our award-winning
H2Oviedo program. We have been
leaders in passing tough ordinances
that keep sexual predators from living
too close to schools, parks and play-
grounds. We have also been leaders in
alerting our residents about extreme
weather by installing the first Tornado
Siren Warning System in the state of
Florida. We also are fostering partner-


ships with the city of Winter Springs
and Seminole County to share'resourc-
es and keep costs down.
There is more I want to do together
with you:
-Finish the widening of State Road
426/419
-Finally bring online the hospital we
so desperately need
-Complete the new Oviedo town
center and revitalize the historic
downtown
-Work with our business commu-
nity to make it stronger and bring new
needed business
-Keep Oviedo not only a top 100
city, but make it a top 10 in the near
future
We now stand on the verge of
becoming an even greater city and I
respectfully ask that you re-elect me
on Nov. 3 and allow me the opportu-
nity to finish the very important work
ahead of us. Thank you for your trust,
advice and friendship during these last
four years.
Regards,
Councilman Steve Henken
