Oviedo in national top 10 ISAAC BABCOCK The VoiceOviedo is in the national spotlight after being named to Family Circle Magazines list of the 10 best towns for families for 2011. The announcement came June 30 from Mayor Dominic Persampiere, who said he was proud that Oviedo made yet another list of best places to live in America. The city has repeatedly graced Money Magazines annual list of 100 best places to live, coming in at No. 100 last year. Oviedo really is a great place to live, Councilman Stephen Schenck said. Four out Persampiere, Schenck, Steve Henken and Keith Britton have helped lead the city during every year that it has placed on national lists. That solidarity on Council was credited by Henken as a big reason the city ranked so highly. When you see all these high marks, you wonder why this city is so good, Henken said.

The uneven, misspelled words penciled the wishes of an 8-year-old whose parents and attorneys argued in front of Lester to decide where he would grow up. The parents admitted to skipping classes that would teach them to stop beating their child. They skipped a lot of things, falling ever shorter of the requirements of clearing their case. The father had missed two scheduled visits with the guardian ad litem volunteer who visited to check on the child. The mothers last drug test came up positive for oxycodone. When the judge read the note, scribbled in a tiny hand, it said the child didnt want to live at home anymore, with either parent. He wanted to live with his grandmother the only place he felt safe.

On a missionThats another thing shes used to. The growing organization has subsisted on donations for years to keep animals from going to kill shelters, which euthanize pets who take too long to be adopted.

To do that, she said she wants to attack it in two ways at once. Though her shelter will offer a spay and neuter clinic, she said shell also be educating pet owners about sterilizing their animals to cut down on pet overpopulation. That includes dispelling some old wives tales about how the procedure can affect pets. The more we can educate people of the importance of spaying and neutering animals, the better, Sarullo said. They dont get fat and lazy, they dont stop being good watchdogs, or any of those things people say. But before they get spayed or neutered, their hormones are bursting at the seams.

The University of Central Florida grad and owner of Fifty Brews carries two major beers on tap and close to 100 microbrews. He calls himself a beer lover. Want proof? Last year when he was packing his suitcase in a hotel in the Czech Republic, he had a problem it wasnt big and his beer. He left the clothes. He kept the beer. Sitting at a wooden table in the middle of his sprawling sports bar just east of Waterford Lakes Town Center, Rex looks right at home as he leans back in a UCF cap and casual shorts. The blue centurions head printed on the front of his white T-shirt is the mascot of one of his favorite beers. House brewsBut now he might have some more favorites and theyre all his. After a year in the bar busibrewing its own. There are only so many beers you can get out there, so we wanted something different, Rex said. Though he prides himself six distributors, he said the only way to be truly unique would be to make beer himself. Thats not a tough task with a group of friends who experiment with beer for fun. Take a look up and down the scattered beer kegs-turned bar stools on an early Friday afternoon and the group of guys running the place might be mistaken for customers. But theyre part of a wave of beer-making ingenuity that Rex hopes will transform his business. The seemingly always-grinning Wess Smith is pouring a golden beer out of a tap; his brother Ian Smith chats with customers at the other end of the bar, and friend Alex Font clicks away on his sticker-covered MacBook as he analyzes a new brewing recipe. Beer revolutionThe world of brewing had already caught up to the high-tech revolution before Fifty Brews opened its doors. Font is using one right now that tells him what his beer will look like, how bitter it will be, and how powerful a punch it will pack before it even hits the boiler. It tells you everything you need to know, Font said. Want to keep track of what beers youve drank in your lifetime? Theres an app for that its called Untapped. Want to use social networks to update customers on new brews about to debut? Just type a line and click a button and thousands of fans get the message. Fifty Brews just had to make the leap to beer reality. Keeping it old schoolWess Smith, the bars brewmaster, had been lobbying Rex for months before he started to take the idea seriously in 2010. Sometime around Halloween last year, Font walked into the bar with a pumpkin beer, and everybody was hooked. Now theyre already on their 10th beer and brewing rapidly. They brew the old school way, Rex said. Thats how they plan on keeping things. Each beer takes six hours to make, he said. Its brewing the way they used to, the way they did it 100 years ago. That throwback feel permeates the place like the smell of boiling hops wafting out of the kitchen. A pot full of malted barfrom an old gas stove with iron grilles. Around a corner in the in a glass jug inside a cardboard box with an air-conditioning duct attached to keep it at just the right temperature. Theyre starting slow, Wess Smith said, but working fast to play catch up. Breweries expandBefore prohibition there were thousands of breweries, he said. Now hes hoping to help the resurgence of small breweries that have exploded across the country over the last 20 years. Last year, 1,753 breweries were operating, the highest total since the late 1800s, according to the Brewers Association, a group of American brewers that have been around almost as long as brewing. Acthe craft brewing industry grew in volume by 11 percent last year, even as beer sales nationwide have stagnated. Orlando has a budding craftbrewing segment. Orange Blossom Pilsner got its start in Orlando and is looking to build a brewery here, and Orlando Brewing, Floridas only USDAues to grow its selection. Shipyard Emporium, a restaurant in Winter Park, has an assortment of specialty drafts crafted by microbrewer Ron Raike. With breweries like Fifty Brews ramping up production to four types of beers at a time, theyre quickly becoming a factor, at least locally. Hopefully well be one of the most well-known brewing companies, Wess Smith said. With the bizarrely named Freaky Black IPA and Fiftys Beauty Peach Weiss already getting good reviews, word is spreading. And every time they release a beer, announced on Facebook, the buzz moves quickly. Usually our beers will only have a two-day lifespan, then theyre gone, Rex said. When someone hears about it, they tell their friends. By the time another beer comes on tap, those round, he said. Its that type of excitement thats got him optimistic about the future for brewing beers that are one of a kind. We didnt want what everybody has, Rex said.

She taught a class at the Epiphany Lutheran Church in Oviedo on July 9. Just because you dont need it, you can help or bless another family, Edwards said.Giving backEdwards said her main purpose of her classes is to encourage people to donate to the needy by donating their freebie or extra items to local food banks, women shelters and religious institutions. I teach the classes to help you lower your grocery bill, but also to learn how to give back to the community. We hope you give back to the food pantry or shelters in your area, Edwards said. Forty students listened attentively during her lecture, nodding their heads, taking notes and repeating wow, and I need to do that. Church board member and two-year couponer Cara Roesner poning.

Coupon terminology includes stacking, which describes the practice of combining manufacturer coupons and store coupons. This is allowed at supermarkets and drug stores. Edwards said she primary encourages her students to shop and coupon at Publix. They are more couponfriendly and customer-friendly, she said. The coupon company reimburses each of these stores, she said, so Publix doesnt mind customers using coupons. By stacking coupons, you may just end up walking out of the store with extra items at no cost, she said.Big savingsSisters Tara and Meera Harry say they are avid fans of the TV show Extreme Couponing. Tara Harry became an active couponer recently due to sister. She would make me cut through the Sunday paper and match it up to sales and we try to work together as a team, she said. Tara said she noticed she was saving as much as 50 percent. I wont go shopping unless theres a coupon or its on sale, and I try not to pay normal price. Meera, whos been couponing for about a year, agreed. I told her, Youre not going there unless we cut these coupons, and in the end, you do save money, so why not?

SENIOR VOICE THRIVE @ 55 AND BEYOND!Although Alvaro Ramirez is originally from Nicaragua, he does not speak Spanish or English. He communicates through sign language. The 40-year-old man has been tackling challenges that come his way since he lost his hearing at the age of 2. ing a job. I feel like deaf people suffer a lot of discrimination, Ramirez Ramirez is getting help from a center that assists many Central Floridians in living independently. The Center for Independent Living, founded in 1976, provides everything from home ramps, educational seminars, job placement services, sign language interpreters, mental health counseling and housing resources. Our focus is issues that people with disabilities face and we are the only provider in our area that provides comprehensive services for people who are deaf, Center executive director Liz Howe said. The center runs on federal, state and local funds, and their main goal is to provide education and aid-based initiatives that help integrate the disabled into the workplace and society. Ive enjoyed working with them and have been very impressed with them, Ramirez said.Unemployment risesUnemployment continues to plague Americans the national unemployment rate climbed to 9.2 percent in May, while Floridas rate reached 10.6 percent. The unemployment rate for the disabled has continuously remained even higher, hitting 15.6 percent in May. Theres still a stigma out there for employers, in terms of hiring people with disabilities and having to accommodate the expenses of their disability, Howe said. The Center for Independent Living is helping those in need break down the stereotypes associated with disabilities. Diversity is not only race, color, sex or religion, diversity is also disability, CIL developmental director Karen Bacharach said. And disability is the number one minority in our country. Ramirez said he believes theres still a very separate world between the hearing and the hearing-impaired, and equality is still a concept that needs a lot of attention. Theres a real lack of power between deaf people and hearing people sometimes, Ramirez said. Celebrating a milestoneEquality continues to be the Center for Independent Livings goal, especially as the 21st anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act approaches on Tuesday, July 26. Bacharach said that CILs biggest challenge is awareness. The more people that know what we do, the more support well get from the general community because we want to make sure that those living with disabilities have every advantage and opportunity to live their lives as fully as they choose, Bacharach said. If they want to do something, theres an opportunity to do it; were all about making it possible.KRISTY VICKERY The VoicePutting the disabled back to work PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE VOICEMargie Winkler, left, has worked with the Center for Independent Living for 14 years, part of a long success story for the agency.

Page 9 Seminole Voice July 15 July 28, 2011The Winter Park Diamond Dawgs cling to a narrow lead at the top of the Florida Collegiate Summer League ladder after snapping a three-game losing streak and going on a two-game run last weekend. And the Sanford River Rats are struggling to pull themselves from near the bottom of the league after losing another game. Entering the end of the week, the Dawgs (15-6-1) will have to keep their short streak alive to try to pull away from the second place Leesburg Lightning (168) nipping at their heels. After losing two games due to some cold bats and then watching a slugfest turn into a heartbreaker 10-9 loss in the previous week, the Dawgs vanquished two demons at once over the weekend. Saturday they watched the struggling Sanford River Rats build a tenuous 2-0 lead midway into the sixth inning as the Dawgs struggled to put a bat on the ball. But that all turned around in a hurry in the bottom of the sixth when the Dawgs launched into a six-run rally to catch up and then blow the game open in a matter of minutes. Ted Blackman went 2-5 in the game with two hits, while Alex Cruz hammered home two runners thanks to a double in the eighth. He would score two runs for the Dawgs, who spread the hitting around to grab the blowout 10-3 win. The Dawgs watched the tables nearly turn on them against DeLand Sunday, as they slowly built a lead over the Suns but watched them come roaring back late in the game. Over the course of nine innings, the Dawgs would use six pitchers trying to hold off the Suns before Chris Walterthe top of the ninth to get the save in the 4-3 win. Coming up after the all-star break, Stadium to host Winter Haven at 7 p.m. Thursday. Then they head to Leesburg for a doubleheader Friday night. The Rats will try for a comeback at Sanford Memorial Stadium, hosting Orlando at 7 p.m. Friday.

Stay positive in your interview EMPLOYMENT Ask Sandi I have recently given three presentations on interviewing and have received some great questions from the groups. Once you get the call, the process starts, and how you react can make the difference between an offer and Thank you, but we have selected another candidate who is a closer match. Interviewing is a chance for you to show the employer that your skills truly match your resume and that you will chance for you to highlight all of your accomplishments and share what you bring to the table. An interview is not an opportunity to trash your former boss or talk about how desperate you are for this job. Not only do you go into an interview without knowing who knows whom, you give a bad impression when you are negative. Before walking into the interview, research the company. If you look up your potential interviewer on Facebook or LinkedIn, dont let them know that you know they have three kids and love to play golf. They might think you are a stalker. Just share what you know about the company and how you will add value. Do not go into an interview without researching the company. Interviewers tend to ask this question quite a bit. Another important thing to remember: Dont babble and go off on tangents. Many interviewers do things to make you really comfortable so you will feel free to share. Sharing too much can be an interview killer. Listen to the question and answer it directly. Telling stories is great but be succinct. Lastly, always be positive, ask questions, thank the interviewer for their time and send a thank you note.Sandi Vidal is the executive director for Christian HELP and the Central Florida Employment Council, with more than 10 years of recruiting and human resources experience.

Recently, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) replaced their food pyramid model with MyPlate to make it easier to balanced meals at home and on-the-go. MyPlate helps to simplify meal planning by illustrating ideal servings of the fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins and dairy food groups on a colorful divided plate. MyPlate helps parents train their children to devote half their plate to fruits and vegetables. Grains and lean protein each take up a quarter of the plate. A side helping of dairy shows kids will also need a serving of low-fat milk or another dairy product to complete their meal. MyPlate offers simple messages that are easy to incorporate into your familys daily diet: etables and fruits. serve whole grains, such as oatmeal and brown rice. and water rather than sugary drinks. choose ones low in sodium. Consider smaller plates for younger children. One of the most important features of MyPlate is its emphasis on fruits and vegetables.
