CampArt of surviving > 7 Housing reboundIn a still unstable housing market, it only took Nancy Herman one day to sell her Orange County home. Our house was under contract for full price in 24 hours; it was amazing, she said. We hadnt even imagined our house would sell that quickly. The quick sale of Hermans home is a rare occurrence in a housing market still suffering from a weary economy.Realtors move inHerman said she has RE/MAX realtor Benjamin Simanton to thank for her familys quick relocation to Seminole County. And with the opening of his new Oviedo RE/MAX, Simanton said he wants to help more families transition to new homes. Simanton said the goal is to be green, and to save money on overhead by letting agents work from home, while supplying them an efficient office to bring clients. It will have a Starbucks lounge kind of feel to it, more than a sales office, he said. Simanton hopes this modern approach will make clients more comfortable about a market that KRISTY VICKERY The Voice Please see REAL ESTATE Page 6Lt. John Schardine scrutinized the monitor as it played a video of a black truck cruising through an intersection, past a light thats been red for more than 10 seconds. The driver would have gotten away with it, too, if it werent for the red-light camera on watch. Schardine, of the Maitland Police Departments special operations division, said he did not know how dangerous the intersection of Maitland Avenue and Marion Way was until it became monitored. My thoughts were, Theres no way were gonna be able to justify a red-light camera here, because what could possibly happen at this intersection? Well, lo and behold, we get an average of 200 violations a month, he said. The cameras are on duty or in the approval process in many Central Florida municipalities. Theyve been in Orlando since 2008 and Winter Springs since 2009. Winter Park and Maitland joined the program this year. Schardine said that the number of violations per month has been slowly decreasing there were 213 citations in January and 186 in June. Citations are only sent after both Schardine and the camera vendor review the camera footage to determine if the law was broken. Out of the 3,500 cases the camera system has sent to the police department since the programs start in January, about 1,200 have resulted in citations. Police reject cases for reasons including a blurry image, missing vehicle information, a right turn on red, emergency vehicles and funeral processions.Winter ParkWinter Park implemented its program in February. In the first full month of the program, Winter Park issued 372 citations. Just like in Maitland, that number decreased slowly, down to 227 citations in June. The vendor and the police department throw out about 70 percent of the cases the camera records. The mere deterrent to people thinking they can make the intersection without any repercussions will cause them to think twice before attempting to go through the intersection on a red light, said Mike Hilton, of the Winter Park Police Departments special operations division. The ultimate goal is to reduce the amount of crashes for the safety of the public.Winter SpringsAs for Winter Springs, its numbers are more mixed. The first camera in the city became active in May 2009 at State Road 434 and Winding Hollow. In May, 58 citation fees were collected. In January 2011, 77 were collected. The numbers have gone up and down. On the other hand, the citys more recently monitored intersection, 434 and Vistawilla, received 91 citation payments in February 2010, but only 11 in January 2011. Low numbers have persisted ever since. Money mattersRight now were not making any money; were not losing any money. So basically, theyre self-sustaining right now, said Shawn Boyle, Winter Springs finance and administration diTechnology is constantly evolving. New computer systems, software and programs are being developed every day, and people are becoming more and more dependent on this technology to store great amounts of information. With that, however, Ben Taylor, professor at Seminole State College of Florida, said the risk is growing that peoples personal, financial and social information will fall into the wrong hands. Just as companies develop more sophisticated security measures for their operating systems, he said, theres the continuing attempt at creating new viruses and trying to get through them. This is where his teachings at Seminole State come in.

Cyber security, he said, is and will continue to be one of the most growing technological industries in the near future. Training the workforceKimberly Sullivan, media specialist with Workforce Central Florida, said her organization agrees, having identified cyber security as one of its emerging targeted industries in Central Florida. This led them to partner with Seminole State for a special cyber-security training program earlier this year. Workforce Central Florida and Seminole State collaborated to put on their first Cyber Security Training Program, graduating 23 students on May 26. The 12-week program, Sullivan said, allowed unemployed workforce members interested in the information technology fields to learn specialized skills in the growing network cyber security area. We want jobseekers to be able to have the opportunity to explore and gain these kinds of skills to be ready for the jobs of the future once theyre here, Sullivan said.To stop a hacker, you have to think like oneTaylor said one of the main focuses is on students being able to understand how hackers work. To do this, they have to understand hackers motivation, tools and methods. Its not just about the information on how to stop them, Taylor said, but how can we understand what theyre doing to combat it. When students successfully pass the course, Taylor said, they will likely be qualified to pass and receive Certified Ethical Hacker accreditation. But whos to say students wont use their newfound skills for non-ethical practices and do the hacking themselves? Last month, a University of Central Florida computer engineer student, Scott Arciszewski, was arrested by the FBI for alleged computer intrusion of an FBI website. Taylor said he has no prefect answer. Some of our students may do bad things with these things, but some of our other students may end up protecting against it, he said. Its something that we try and provide the information about, and then we cant really control what they do with it. But the potential is out there for them to do good things. He says teaching these skills is a risk necessary for the students overall education and their futures as cyber security specialists. As the black hats or bad guys continue to come up with more ingenious ways to get into systems or corrupt systems, then well need people to combat that, he said Its definitely an area I dont see shrinking any time soon.From tinkerer to high-tech specialistSeminole State College student and participant in the Workforce Central Florida Cyber Security Training Program Eric Leiter said he has gone from just tinkering with computers to hopefully achieving certified cyber security status. Though Leiter, 51, said hes been working on and building computers since the s, longer than some of his Seminole State classmates have been alive, he says he had no formal IT training until he began the program in January. He sees cyber security as a gateway to future career success as he embarks into his third career change; formally he worked as a mortgage broker. Lucky for me, I dont need to have 25 years of IT experience, he said. I just need to be up on whats been happening the past 18 months to be current with technology to really be successful. Currently pursuing an associates degree in information systems technology, Leiter said his classes, along with the training he received through the Workforce program, have put him on a great track to a successful career after graduation. For me, it was a great way to get my feet wet in that particular area, he said. Having gone through the course, theres no question in my mind that this will be one of the specialties that I will develop in my IT career.

Charlie Crist passed the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act, which regulates the camera programs. It also increased the amount of each fine to $158. The state receives $83 per fine, but doesnt provide any money for camera upkeep. The remaining revenue collected is split between the vendor and the city or county. Orlando pays its vendor, American Traffic Solutions, $3,200 per month for intersection upkeep and processing violations. Since implementing its camera program in September 2008, $7.4 million in fines have been collected as of June 30 and distributed among the state, city and ATS. Maitland adopted the program in January. Its one monitored intersection is just breaking even, said Sharon Anselmo, the citys management services director. She said that safety, not profit, is the goal of the program. Maitland pays its vendor, Gatso USA, $9,200 per month. Since its implementation in January through June 30, Maitlands ticket revenue was $117,394. Out of that, $61,669 was paid to the state; $53,716 went to the vendor; and $1,486 went to a law enforcementtraining fund. The city was left with $523 to add to its general fund. ATS provides cameras for Orlando and Winter Springs, as well as 70 other cities in Florida. Charles Territo, a spokesman from ATS, said that the cameras are installed to change the behavior of drivers. There is nothing in the Constitution that says drivers have the right to run red lights, break the law or put others in danger, he said.Rethinking the lawIn May, the Florida House passed a bill that may have repealed the Mark Wandall Act, but the legislative session ended before the Senate could vote on it. In order for it to pass in the next session, the House would have to reintroduce it and start the process over. The bills sponsor, Rep. Richard Corcoran, said he has not yet decided whether or not to do so. Katie Betta, a spokeswoman for House Speaker Dean Cannons office, said the crux of the argument is twofold. There were members of the House who felt that local governments werent as concerned with the safety aspect of the cameras and were becoming reliant on the revenue stream. The second part of the argument, she said, is that some studies show that the cameras cause an increase in rear-end collisions in monitored intersections because nervous drivers stop too quickly at yellow lights to avoid being caught by the cameras. However, Mike Rhodes, Orlandos Code Enforcement division manager, said that the city saw a 20 percent reduction in rear-end collisions. In addition, the number of accidents caused by running red lights has decreased by one third at Orlandos monitored intersections since the cameras were installed. Maitlands Schardine suggests that the state should address complaints by making more consistent rules on driver fault. Some cities strictly monitor drivers turning right on red, making sure they come to a full stop, while others do not.Pushing forwardMaitland plans to add six more intersections to its program, meaning it will need to hire extra help to review the footage caught on camera. Soon, U.S. Highway 17-92 and Horatio Avenue and 17-92 and Lake Avenue will be under the watch of cameras. Last year, Oviedo announced that it would implement the programs, but Chief Jeffrey Chudnow said that the city has not moved forward, and there have been no further discussions about the cameras. Even if the revenue isnt what the cities expected, the red-light cameras are making the streets safer, proponents say. It makes people think..., Winter Parks Hilton said. Even if the intersection doesnt have a camera, theyll think twice. Learn moreVisit your city governments website to learn more about your local red-light camera program.

Beverly Rich, 18th Circuit Court Volunteer of the Year. A little girl with sun-kissed skin splashes out of the pool and drenches her parents in a wet hug. They savor the moment, because at one time, her very survival was in doubt. Ali thrives today thanks to a crisis, a deep friendship and a domino effect that bonded two families. It started when Linda Clark agreed to care for an infant boy nicknamed Little Man who had been placed in protective custody. She was unaware of the Guardian ad Litem program until GAL case manager Karen Ruberti explained that the guardian advocates in court for the childs best interests. Four months later, a second baby linked to the same case needed shelter, and Clark discovered firsthand the life-changing role her GAL volunteer would play. Forever familiesThe second baby, named Ali, was born premature and needed a six organ transplant including liver, spleen and partial intestine and stomach. After a donor was located, Clark spent the following months at Alis bedside in a critical care ward in Miami. My fingertips could just touch her leg, Clark said of the impossibly tiny life engulfed by tubes, machines and needles. Karen selected a retired nurse as Alis GAL who opened so many doors with her medical understanding, Clark said. I learned everything about Alis condition and my friend Robin Gomez, who had undergone two transplants herself, was my medical interpreter. We fought for procedures and equipment Ali needed that the system might not provide. Meanwhile her husband and mother cared for Little Man in Orlando. Six months later, Clark, Gomez and the GAL team succeeded in bringing Ali home. Robin and husband Jochy had fallen in love with Ali and decided to pursue adoption. The first time Ali saw Jochy, her big dark eyes just locked on his, Clark said. Two days after Christmas, Ali officially joined her family. The Clarks felt the same way about Little Man, and after successfully adopting him, Clark became a GAL volunteer. This experience has made me a better woman, wife, mother and daughter, Clark said. During this journey, my guardian knew what happened last week, last month and six months ago. So many kids in hospital wards have no one we make a difference in their recovery.Volunteer shows tenacity Dallas Ilter watched two boys brush the matted coats of abandoned dogs at the Seminole County SPCA shelter. Ilter has been a GAL volunteer for almost a year. It was her conviction that reunited the half-siblings for a weeklong summer trip. They hadnt seen each other in weeks and were overjoyed to be together, Ilter said. Our kids understand these animals need a safe home too. Though GAL volunteers can help protect a child, they cant offer them a home. Working within the law, there are limits to what a GAL volunteer can do. Guardians ad litem are not foster parents, legal guardians or lawyers, Ilter said. We do the legwork, gather information about the childs circumstances and become their voice in court. You just need a caring heart and lots of tenacity. Ilter sought out the GAL program when she moved to Lake Mary from South Florida. We do need more diverse guardians. I might speak a little Spanish or bring my Yu-Gi-Oh! cards to help them open up. A GAL visits the child, checks that appointments are kept and assists in locating resources. Through the GALs report, a judge learns about the childs personality, wishes and physical and emotional condition. Being a guardian ad litem is challenging and very, very rewarding, Ilter said.Sopranos voice advocatesBev Richs mother predicted she would become an attorney. I always had a compelling argument when I wanted something, Rich said. This classically trained soprano and member of the Bach Festival Society choir has been a GAL volunteer for nine years. We listen to the child unconditionally and magnify their voice, Rich said. These kids are so strong and fragile. Their lives are a mess, not by their choosing. We make sure the child is in a safe, caring environment. Rich spent hours with a teen from a difficult home and located his grandmother and mentor from elementary school. He had been prescribed psychotropic medication by a psychiatrist, but to me he didnt appear to be bipolar. I recorded his behaviors in detail on and off the drugs, researched the side effects and discovered that his follow-up blood work was never done. Based on my research, the judge ordered him off the medication. Her teen wrote about his experience: I had to leave because of drug and alcohol abuse in my home. Without my GAL I would still be in foster care, in junior high and on harmful medications. She always had a smile. Just by giving your time and love, you make a difference. Look for Part 3, about the groups that support GAL volunteers, in the Sept. 9 issue.PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE VOICEGuardian ad Litem volunteers (from left) Linda Clark, Dallas Ilter and Beverly Rich have helped change childrens lives.

And theyre not alone in jumping into the digital world where paper formerly filled desks in stacks during meetings. Local cities such as Winter Springs, Oviedo and Winter Park are getting in on the digital revolution. In Maitland, early teething issues were brushed off with jokes at the Councils first meeting with iPads on the dais. Before the meeting began, some Council members joked about playing Angry Birds, while others had trouble finding the documents they would need. Im still learning, Mayor Howard Schieferdecker said. I know the basics of it, but Im not that well-versed on it yet. Maitland purchased nine iPad 2s plus cases, wireless keyboards and other accessories, spending $6,700. Schieferdecker said that the tablets would start paying for themselves after the first year of use. Many cities in Central Florida are adopting the modern and sometimestroublesome technology to end the ritual of printing several-hundred-page documents for each member at every meeting. The city manager, assistant city manager, city clerk and IT department have iPads, as well. The tablets are used strictly for city business, keeping officials calendars, contacts, notes, documents and more on one 10-inch, 600-gram machine. Files are shared using Dropbox, an online file-sharing service that allows users to share files over the Internet without printing or even sending emails. Using the app iAnnotate, councilors can mark up and annotate PDFs. Maitland Councilwoman Linda Frosch estimated that the city will save a tree and a half every month.Winter Park leadsWinter Park commissioners received iPads about four months ago. The commissioners were previously issued laptops, which cost more and demand more skill. The tablets have not completely replaced laptops yet, but they save the city from printing thousands of pages a month. Fortunately, all of our commissioners are pretty technologically savvy, Communications Director Clarissa Howard said, so they were able to adapt pretty well. Winter Parks IT department and city management had recommended using iPads as part of the citys goal of creating a greener local government. The city also put all of their audio files and meeting minutes on its website to encourage citizens to go paperless too. The citys use of iPads is beginning to expand to some of the department heads on a trial basis. Howard received her tablet just weeks ago. Especially in the communication field, she said, its important to keep up with technology, and it does actually increase productivity and efficiency as far as my own personal experience.Winter Springs goes paperlessIn Winter Springs, not all of the local government officials have adopted the iPad, but the city has gone paperless in the past year. Mayor Charles Lacey said that by using laptops and similar technology, the City Commission saves about 2,000 sheets of paper per meeting, depending on the meetings content. The process would have begun earlier, but some commissioners insisted on having paper copies of every item. As those commissioners left office, we were fortunate that the commissioners who came in were more receptive to electronic versions, Lacey said. To me, its just cost-saving and a convenience. Lacey does not blame those commissioners who demanded paper copies. Instead, he understands that most people grew up using paper and are not comfortable with a keyboard and mouse or touch screen in front of them. Sylvester Smith, Maitlands IT manager, said that some other cities in Florida, such as Deltona, passed on the opportunity to get iPads because they preferred using paper. There are two things with new technology, he said. People are set in their ways and dont want to change, or theyre intimidated by the technology. But our council had no problem with it whatsoever.Oviedos laptopsWinter Springs and Maitland also have a public terminal in City Hall where citizens have online access to local government documents. I think weve got a good, cheap system that wasnt difficult to do, and its fairly easy, Lacey said. If any other cities want to call and get some free advice on how to do it, wed offer our expertise. Oviedo has been using web-based agendas on laptops for about six years. The citys IT staff is looking into iPads, but because they do have laptops and have saved paper that way, it is not certain that they will adopt tablet computers. The city of Orlando is planning to move forward with plans to adopt iPads for their council, as most of their paperwork, such as budget reports, agenda items and evaluations, has been made available online. Only four of the seven councilors still get printed agenda books. You have to keep up with the rest of the world, Schieferdecker said, and if youre way back here in the Dark Ages and everyone else is doing things so much faster, itll cost you something in the future.iGovernmentLocal municipalities are turning to high tech to cut down on wasted paper and to increase ef ciencyAMY SIMPSON The Voice By: Aug. 12, 2011 Details Amy Simpson Observer Staff You have to keep up with the rest of the world, and if youre way back here in the Dark Ages, and everyone else is doing it so much faster, itll cost you something in the future.

Aug. 12 Aug. 25, 2011 Page 6 Seminole Voice The new school year has arrived and Seminole County administrators are feeling the stress as morning bells prepare to ring. The controversy over the penny sales tax will not be solved when students enter their not-so-crowded classrooms this Monday. Everyone wants a piece of the penny pie. City, county and school leaders are testing the temperature of the voting public to determine what the political fallout will be if they propose to keep it. The window is closing for the decision on whether or not the issue lands on a special ballot in November. A childs education should be akin to apple pie and grandma. It should be valued, respected and protected but at what cost and by whom? In a perfect world, no one wants to close schools or cut art and athletic programs. Everyone would love to drive a truckload of new laptops and technology to the schools front doorsteps. Unfortunately, for the county and the school board, the timing of this dilemma couldnt be worse. In happier economic times, folks might have agreed to that little penny tax, but times have changed. Every penny counts, and families continue to an increased cost of living. It is hard to sympathize with our school administrators and those in Washington and Tallahassee who cry and cajole for more of our money. Spending is easy when times are good. What happened to all the money collected in property taxes when values were bloated? What happened to the extra penny tax during its 20year history when our growth had gusto? The same thing that happened when we get a raise we spent it. If you were lucky enough to stumble on some found money, you probably spent it; we all do that. It shows in our cultures poor track record in saving, discipline and prioritizing politically, economically and personally. The irony is that we have more interactive technology and tips than ever before and so do our children. Even kids without much money still have access to a school and county library. There are free community programs through organizations, churches and business sponsors. And for all the references to the Great Depression, I think about our grandparents and great grandparents who lived in that time. They went to school with extraordinarily limited resources but they continued to learn. They knew that education was the key to a better future, and they were motivated to secure it, one way or the other. Plenty of successful leaders had less than a formal high school education, but they were determined to better themselves and their families. They knew their heritage, world history and basic math calculations. Parents may no longer be able to afford an iPad, smart phone or laptop for their kids, but they can still make an impact on their education. A family may not be able to support another decade or two of 7 percent sales tax, but they can spend a few hours a week engaged in their childs homework. When was the last time your family discussed math, science and language arts during supper? All of us need to dust off the cobwebs of all that knowledge we used to have. For our kids to have a successful school year, the journey of knowledge starts at home, with us. Our example can be the best motivation for our kids to courageous muscles. Speaking of creativity, the Museum of Geneva History will be showcasing a Civil War Encampment and Medical Display on Sunday, Aug. 14 from noon to 4 p.m. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, so bring the kids and meet re-enactor Mike Linthicum and his team for this very special exhibition.

TALK TOKAREN >Stetsons Corner By Karen McEnany-Phillips Not so happy school year School days, school days, good old golden school days, with reading and writing and arithmetic, as we used to say or sing. Some of the students I have chatted with seem to be happy to go back to school and see their friends, and others would rather stay at the beach and swim. The idea sounds good to me, but that will not get us an education. Looks like the Oviedo Farmers Market had another successful day on the first Saturday of this month. Truly, it was a very hot day, but people came, bought and enjoyed. There was plenty of company and good music from the Left-over Biscuits Band, not to mention excellent food and drinks. The historical society will continue to do this event for our community, and the people of our community have thanked the society very much for this. Please watch the papers as we may be changing the times for the market from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. to 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Did you all happen to notice that the city lost one of its old big trees in front of the Lawton House, recently? We had a big branch fall around the Fourth of July, and the city had an arborist check the tree, and he said several other branches were due to come down as the were rotted and perhaps diseased. Now the whole tree is down. It is a shame as it was a lovely tree and added beauty and style to the historic house, besides shade for events. I think the city will be adding a replacement later. Dont forget, on Aug. 14 the Daily City is hosting another Food Truck Bazaar at the Oviedo Mall. The bazaar runs from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. There will be more than 15 trucks there, serving everything from Korean BBQ to cupcakes. The Vine Outreach Thrift Store will hold a free lunch and grocery giveaway to those who need it. The Vine Thrift Store is located at 98 W. Broadway St. in Oviedo. Lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the last Saturday of each month. Have you visited the Oviedo Mall lately? Well, come see the new additions. It is a pleasure to announce the opening of four new stores during the past five months, which will provide more variety of services and goods for shoppers. Eye Shadow Salon, which opened in April and is located between the Childrens Place and Bon Worth, provides services including threading, airbrush makeup, henna tattoos and more. Fashion Uniforms opened its doors on June 1 and is located near Gymboree. It offers a variety of uniforms including medical scrubs and shoes and chefs attire. Hands of Time opened in July and is located next to Justice. It offers a variety of clock, watch and jewelry repair services as well as clocks and handmade gemstone globes of all sizes and values for sale. The newest addition of stores is the Embroidery World, which opened the first week of August, and is located near Barnes & Noble. This store offers monogramming on products for sale in-store or on products purchased elsewhere.

Weve been watching the listing inventory drop for at least a year now, RE/MAX broker and manager Craig Kesler said. Market on reboundAccording to My Florida Regional MLS, the median price of Orlando area sales is $158,000, which is about 40 percent higher than it was in June 2010, $112,700. And the number of homes sold just in Oviedo and Winter Springs has increased 16 percent since the beginning of the year, with a median price of $204,046, slightly higher than Orlando. Its all predicated by supply and demand, and the demand inched up a little bit, because investors came back in and thats whats been driving the market, Kesler said. A lot of these investors are paying cash for these properties, because they are taking it out of the stock market, Kesler said. Simanton said another positive influence on the market is banks are working with homeowners to streamline the short sale process, so home owners dont lose their homes in foreclosure.Labor tied to housingSean Snaith, director of UCFs Institute for Economic Competitiveness, said sales are improving this year from the first quarter to the second quarter, but the key to real improvement is the labor market. The state of the housing market going forward is really intertwined with the labor market, he said, and until we start seeing some significant job creation and see the unemployment start to make a steady decline downward, I think its going to be hard for the housing market to make a full-blown recovery. Snaith said the signs of improvement are there, and the labor market will pick up, but the progress will be very slow. As long as we have high unemployment and weak job creation, we are going to continue to have problems with foreclosure and limit potential buyers, because now it turns out you have to actually have a job to get a mortgage, so an improving labor market helps on both sides of the housing market, Snaith said.

Having been absent on and off during the week because she wasnt feeling well, Marlie didnt want to miss the fun that Sandy Bonus Fine Arts Theatre/ Art Camp provides children like her: a week of fun, worry-free creative expression and a chance to just be a normal kid. She gets the opportunity to be herself and doesnt have to answer any questions about why she doesnt have hair or why she has scars, said Sarah Dodson, Marlies mother. She doesnt have to answer those questions, because everyones just like her.Putting on a showJoining 10 other campers local children with cancer, survivors of the disease and siblings Marlie braved the rain, and her returning cancer, to join her friends for the last night of B.A.S.E Camp American Childhood Cancer Organizations seventh annual fine arts camp in Maitland, created by Sandy Bonus and Day Gigliotti. In addition to creating memory books containing each childs short and long-term goals, as well as their creative drawings and statements, the campers produce and perform a play with puppets to culminate the weeks festivities. This years play, called Peppe the Lamplighter, told the story of a boy who is ashamed of a job he took that his father doesnt approve of so he could help his family. The whole week is really about feeling normal, having fun and learning some art terms, Bonus said of the camp that is free for families. We go over our goals and show the kids how they should gravitate toward open doors, not closed ones. This years performance was a little different. Due to the rain, the show was moved inside where all of the volunteers, children and parents huddled together in the tight space of the studio to listen to the pre-recorded audio of the play, as campers chowed down on desserts. When a campers character voice came on, the camper smiled and laughed and raised her hand to acknowledge who was speaking. Providing constant supportWe always choose a play that inspires the kids to overcome challenges, Bonus said. It all ends happy. The whole week is about the process, not the show. We cant put that kind of pressure on them. The fact that we got rained out made it all the more exciting to the kids. B.A.S.E Camp, which stands for Believe, Achieve, Support and Educate, recently joined forces with the American Childhood Cancer Organization. The Maitland camp is just one of more than 23 programs that B.A.S.E Camp, in operation for 29 years, offers. Providing meals, money, donations and support groups are among the countless others. Everything we do is a diversion, said Terri Jones, founder and president of B.A.S.E Camp. We want the children to focus on the good in their lives, not the bad. In the past, funding the fine arts camp came from Gigliotti and Bonus pockets, but this year more than $1,000 was raised through private donations and the selling of ad space in a program for the production.Touching livesDiagnosed when she was 3, Marlie came out of her two-year remission three weeks ago when she went in for her three-month routine MRI. She is diagnosed with pineoblastoma, a rare, malignant brain tumor. For her mom, B.A.S.E Camp means the world to them now and always. B.A.S.E Camp is our support system, absolutely, Dodson said. Not only do they help us financially, but they have these events This is Marlies family. This is her cancer family.

Kevin Reilly thought when he won the Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals Classic Junior Golf Tournament held at Disneys Magnolia Golf Course on July 13. Id come close the past two years but fallen short, the 16-year-old said. With a final score of 69, three under par, Reilly, of Oviedo, took the top prize his name engraved on a trophy and with free tickets to the Walt Disney World parks. This was just one of the many triumphs the Hagerty High School junior has accomplished in more than a decade-long golfing career. Hes come a long way since his dad, Tim Reilly, bought him his first set of plastic clubs when he was 2 years old. Golf, Kevin said, has become more than just a hobby, but a passion. Instead of relaxing, Kevin has spent nearly every day of his summer vacation either at the Twin Rivers Golf Club ourse in Oviedo or the Timacuan Golf Club course in Sanford. As his coaches and family members have noticed and his finish at the Disney tournament shows its been paying off.Getting in the swing of thingsHaving been ranked in the top 25 high school golfers in Florida his first two years at Hagerty, Kevins golf game has come a long way since the first tournaments he competed in at age 5. Hes always been good, said his grandfather and one time fill-in caddy, James Robertson, but now hes getting really good. But as Kevin, and all those familiar with his game would say, getting up to this level has not been smooth sailing. Last summer, Kevin grew more than five inches, leaving him tall, lanky and, most notably for his golf game, a lot farther away from the ball. Last year, he started hitting the ball a lot farther, but he didnt know how to control it, his Hagerty golf coach, Brandi Malkovich, said. But with additional coaching and some adjustments to his clubs, Kevin is back in action. Now hes filling out, and hes hitting it really far and controlling it much better, she said. All of this just in time for his junior and, he says, the most important golf season of his career.Keeping up to parJust days before the school year begins, Kevin is spending whats left of his summer like he spent the majority of it on the golf course. This week, he spent teeing up at Twin Rivers as part of a preseason golf camp for the Hagerty Golf Team. The heat index rings the temperature in at more than 100 degrees, and the humid air makes the sweat dripping off the four players flushed faces a fact of life in the summer swelter. Each time a boy reaches a new hole, theres a few practice swings, one audible swish of the club and a loud whack that sends the ball hurtling nearly invisible into the sky. Once the ball lands with a thud in the distance, its followed by either an aggravated sigh, a simple nod to the next player or a good shot! acknowledgement from a teammate. The boys then load up and head out on foot to find where each of the balls landed. At hole 7, Kevin lines up to putt two feet from the hole. He sinks it, landing a birdie. Look at this kid! his coach jibed playfully. Who does he think he is? Kevin smiles, showing off his braces, then shrugs his shoulders and continues to pack up his gear. But who does he think, or at least hope, he will be? I hope to play for the PGA Tour, but college comes first, he said. His immediate plans include playing an impressive junior season, when college scouts will be out in full force, while balancing classes and outside tournaments. Hes gone so far as to sign up to take two of his classes online so he can leave school early to squeeze in some more practice time. Hes really the most dedicated player I know, Malkovich said. His goal is to sign up to play on a Division I college golf team for after graduation his dream schools being Duke or the University of Southern California where he would hope to major in broadcast journalism. Right now, I have to try to get to college, he said, then maybe I can relax a little.PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE VOICESixteen-year-old Kevin Reilly poses with his coach, Brandi Malkovich, at Oviedos Twin Rivers Golf Club, where he practices for the Hagerty golf team.

You dont have to buy fancy paper or print photographs to make a scrapbook anymore. It can all be done in the digital realm. Computer software programs, such as Story Rock, Studio-Scrap and Memories Suite, come equipped with template designs, and you can drag and drop pictures in them. Kathi Efland, a librarian and a 12year scrapbooker, taught a scrap-booking workshop, called Novel Destinations, on Saturday at Oviedos East Branch library. One trick she offered was how to edit photographs. If youre good with computers, theres a lot of photo editing software that you can use, she said. PhotoShop is a well-known one ... A lot of your computers already come with some kind of photo editing software, so if you have a digital photo, you can go in and crop out the background or make other changes to it. You can always get things reproduced in larger sizes. You can skip the printing step and hop onto Snapfish and Shutterfly, websites created to file photographs. Efland explained to the students that they could also design scrapbooks digitally on these sites. You go into your photo file, you create a book right online, she said. Its easy to do. They walk you through it step by step You dont have to be any kind of computer expert. You just have to have your photos on your computer. Efland said that this innovative way of scrap booking was requested by a few people in the class. That seems to be the interest, she said. Its certainly an easy way to get a finished, completed project. That would be an easy thing for us. We can bring a laptop in here, a projector and show them how to do it. So, thats definitely something we can do in the future. Roseann Withers, a scrapbooker since 1998, is one of the students who inquired about the library having a workshop to show how to utilize the online services to make a scrapbook, especially after she saw a final product of a digital scrapbook a librarian made. I want to be a learner, a lifelong learner, and thats what digital is, she said. Its one thing to get a paper and pencil. This is nice. She said she has tons of supplies for paper scrapbooks that she wants to get through before she can start making digital books. She asked Efland if they will be having a workshop on digital scrap booking. If they have a program on this, I would definitely go to this because Im afraid to take the next step by myself, she said. This is my next step. Peggy Rios Miller, a Puerto Rican native who lives in California, visited her sister and parents in Oviedo and attended the workshop with them to build a scrapbook for the first time. I am not so good on the computer, she said. I have no idea how to do that, but it will be nice to know. But one thing will stay the same during this evolution: why people do it. The primary purpose of scrap booking is to preserve memories for future generations, Efland said. But the secondary purpose often is to exercise your creativity. Scrap booking allows you to be artistic, and it allows you to be creative, and theres so many tools.PHOTO BY NIKKI NAMDAR THE VOICEThe days of ribbons and printed photos may be ending for modern-day scrapbookers.NIKKI NAMDAR The VoiceDigital scraps Learn moreIf you are interested in attending a scrapbooking class, visit www.seminolecounty .gov/libraries/indexaspx

DONOHUE:I am a 78-year-old female,active and in good health or so I thought. I eat right and never smoked or drank alcohol. Yesterday,a colonoscopy showed severe diverticulosis. The doctor prescribed Benefiber,then left and never returned. I am stunned. What do I do now? Will I have this forever? Am I unhealthy? How does one develop diverticulosis? What the difference between osisand itis? S.K. ANSWER:Your world isnt collapsing. Youre healthy. Youll have diverticulosis forever. By age 60,half of the people in North America have it. By age 80,two-thirds have it. A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colons muscular wall to its outer surface. A diverticulum looks like a small soap bubble. Its only 1/5 to 2/5 inches (0.5 to 1 cm) in diameter. You can thank our diet for diverticulosis. We refine flour and throw away its bran the outer coat of grain. In countries where whole grains (including the bran) are commonly used,diverticulosis is a rarity. Bran and other fiber hold water in undigested food. Without fiber,the food residue dries and becomes hard. The colon muscles have to generate a great deal of force to keep it moving. That force causes the colon lining to pop through the colon wall as a diverticulum. For most,diverticulosis is a silent condition that remains silent for life. For a few,the diverticulum breaks and causes a local infection in the colon diverticulitis. The pain of a diverticulitis attack is usually felt in the lower left corner of the abdomen, and sometimes people have fever and chills along with the pain. The attack is treated by resting the tract and by giving antibiotics. Were supposed to get 30 grams of fiber a day. Fruits (especially those with edible skins),many vegetables and whole-grain products are the source of dietary fiber. If people cannot get enough fiber in their diet,then commercial products like the one youre taking fill the gap. Metamucil, Perdiem,Citrucel and Fiberall are other examples. The booklet on diverticulosis explains the ins and outs of this very common disorder. To order a copy, write:Dr. Donohue No. 502W,Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipients printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE:My husband has chronic blepharitis and frequently develops hard buildups in both eyes that cause great discomfort. The doctor must remove them two times a month. What can be done to prevent them? S.R. ANSWER:Blepharitis (BLEF-uhRYE-tiss) is inflammation of the eyelid margins,which become red and crusty. The crust can build up into hard deposits. A twice-a-day program of lid cleansing might eliminate the crusts. Have your husband apply warm compresses (a wet washcloth) to closed lids for five to 10 minutes and then massage the lids. After the massage,he cleanses the lid margins with a cotton-tipped applicator dipped in a solution of one part baby shampoo and one part water. The doctor might have to prescribe an antibiotic ointment. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

All Rights ReservedHow Does Your Hospital Rate?It really DOES matter what hospital you go to when you need care. Your life could depend on it. So says the seventh annual study by HealthGrades. This is the same group that tracks doctors,hospitals and nursing homes and assigns a grade for the level of care. Its latest study reveals that your risk of death can be cut as much as 27 percent if you get your care at a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence.To get that designation,a hospital has to pass a long list of criteria. The HealthGrades Web site [www.healthgrades.com] lists by state all of the Distinguishedhospitals. You can search (for free) for grades on a given hospital for any of dozens of medical conditions. Look for Research Hospitals on the front screen of the Web site. Its when you want a full report on a hospital that you have to pay a fee. Youll also have to pay a fee to check out a specific doctor or nursing home it costs money for the report. A much easier way to check on a hospital or doctor is on the governments Health and Human Services website [www.hospitalcompare.hhs .gov]. The HHS layout lets you compare multiple hospitals,right on the same screen. The information is very comprehensive,too. For example,one question concerns the percent of surgery patients who were given an antibiotic at the right time,within one hour before surgery. This is a small detail maybe,but crucial to ones recovery. To find out if there is a Distinguishedhospital in your area,check the HealthGrades Web site and then search for details at the HHS site. Still,if youre facing a major medical issue,perhaps paying for the HealthGrades report would give you needed extra information.

King Features Weekly ServiceMarch 2-8, 2009 Exercise isnt enoughMany of us exercise for an hour a few times a week and assume that takes care of all our heart needs. Not so, apparently, according to a long-term study. Researchers wanted to know the correlation, if any, between the hours spent watching television and heart disease. A second part of the study looked at the correlation between those TV hours and higher Body Mass Index (BMI) and high cholesterol. What they found is enough to make you toss away the television remote control: Sitting too long is tied to risk of obesity, cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Its the equivalent of smoking cigarettes in a lot of ways. And even if we get regular exercise, it doesnt counteract the affects of sitting for long hours. Cardiologist Dr. David Cohen described prolonged sitting as the body going into storage mode. The longer you sit, the worse the risks. For those still working at desk jobs, he suggested delivering messages down the hall instead of sending email, and in general, moving as much as possible. Some of Cohens suggestions also can apply to those of us who dont work outside the home: standing up when talking on the telephone, taking stairs when possible, going for walks. Being up and about is good for weight bearing on long bones and building up bone strength. Moving, even just walking, increases blood flow to limbs, brain and heart. As a start, Im still in favor of taking the batteries out of the television remote control. There would be no idle channel surfing, skimming for programs to watch. Instead wed consult the show listings, get up, walk across the room and change the channel by hand. And who knows, while were up, we might even decide not to sit back down again.

ORLANDO, FL 32820 Tom Carey SundewGardens@gmail.comHomegrown always tastes better. Experience homegrown gardening: A bizarre turn of events on Tropicana Field turned two flailing teams into would-be champions, and then sent the Florida Collegiate Summer League nearly on its head as the Sanford River Rats clawed their way to the championship. In a wild swing of events, the Rats came back from a 4-0 shutout and won 7-5 over the Winter Park Diamond Dawgs, who led off the game with a brilliant first inning before seeing their offense fizzle late. Hoisting the FCSL trophy, the Rats were unlikely champions after a wild comeback that for all intents and purposes spanned an entire season. The Rats had struggled since the second week after briefly flirting with the league lead, then struggled as they slowly plunged to near the league basement in the next two months. But that was all erased in the final inning in the final game of the season as they shocked the Dawgs by breaking a 5-5 ninth inning stalemate in dramatic fashion. A double, a bloop single, a sac fly, another bloop single and two runs scored made all the difference in a game that went from big hits to small ball. By the end of the top of the ninth, the Rats had a tenuous lead. Thats when the Rats Adam Maxon took the mound and took out the side in order to end the game with the final out in second baseman Ryan Brnovichs glove. After going 2-3 with three RBI in the game, James Ramsay walked away with the MVP award for the Rats. The Dawgs Michael Danner was cruising for his own MVP award with a bases-clearing triple in the first that gave the Dawgs their first three runs, plus a single, before the Dawgs were overtaken.PHOTOS COURTESY OF FCSLThe FCSL champion Sanford River Rats pose for the cameras after a shocking comeback at Tropicana Field.

Aug. 12 Aug. 25, 2011 Page 14 Seminole Voice Advocacy in a different forumI want to dedicate this column to a subject very dear to our hearts or should I say our stomachs food. On Oct. 24, Americans from all walks of life will come together to push for healthy, affordable food produced in a sustainable way through a national grassroots campaign called Food Day. It will include events in cities all over the country. Food Day is sponsored by the Center for Science in the Public Interest food labeling, better nutrition and safer food since 1971. While I am an advocate for the banking industry, my advocacy skills have fallen onto my youngest daughter, Carolina. She is a Food Day intern for CSPI, which is located in Washington, D.C. Carolina is also the U.S. ambassador for Slow Food Rome. I have learned so much from her about food safety and the processing of food in our country. No need to say that I am very proud of the accomplishments of both my daughters. My oldest, Cristina, earned her MBA from Rollins College and lives and works in Orlando. Food is becoming a hot issue for all Americans. It is an issue that transcends political parties. It truly is a nonpartisan or bipartisan issue. We all want to know what we are putting in our bodies and how it is produced and processed. We want food information at our was used to raise or grow that I dont think a few years ago we asked these questions or, quite frankly, cared enough to even ask. Thanks to my daughter Carolina, I am asking these questions today. Food Day will encourage people around the country to sponsor or participate in activities that encourage Americans to eat real. Have you ever asked yourself why is it we it related to all the junk food we the ingredients of many of the with my law degree, I do not understand those labels because they are full of obscure ingredients.

From backpacks to lunchboxes to calculators, the items can quickly add up. Here are a few tips to keep your spending under control. 1. Set a budget and prioritize. Before you set foot in a store, take inventory around the house to see what supplies you already have and determine how much youre able to spend. 2. Take advantage of the Florida sales tax holiday, Aug. 12-14. During this period, no sales tax will be collected on most clothing, footwear and accessories selling for less than $75, or on school supplies less than $15. Go to http://dor. myflorida.com/dor/gta.html for more details. 3. Write it down. Impulse buys and flashy, more expensive items can quickly send your total spiraling out of control. Stick to the basics on your list. 4. Stock up after school starts. Oftentimes, materials on teachers lists arent needed the first week of school. If you can wait a week or so, some of these supplies may be marked down. 5. Clip coupons and join reward programs. Coupon clipping can trim away extra expense. Rewards programs might also be worth it, depending on the store. But make sure you know whether youre signing up for a credit card or just a customer incentive program. 6. Rent vs. buy. Before spending the big bucks on expensive new items like musical instruments or sports equipment (which your child might quickly lose interest in), consider renting or buying used items. 7. Prioritize needs versus wants. Although that new computer may be on sale, do sales shop prices. 8. Evaluate online vs. in-store totals. Shopping online can save money, time and gas. Just make sure to look at the total amount before checking out. Fees, shipping costs and other expenses might outweigh the benefit. 9. Monitor prices. Ask about sales adjustments and watch prices after your purchase. Many retailers will honor the discounted amount. 10. Check sales receipts before leaving the store to ensure your total is correct. Couponclipping doesnt count if discounts arent applied correctly. Being mindful of every dollar can add up to big savings in the check-out line. If youre able to help provide school supplies for children whose families cant, stop by any Fifth Third Bank to contribute to our school supply drive.

Get your network on at job fairs EMPLOYMENT Ask Sandi Central Florida Employment Council will be celebrating our 100th job fair with the governors job fair on Sept. 7. During the 14 years we have done job fairs, thousands of people have landed jobs. My favorite stories are the ones where the recruiter was actually hired at our job fair and is now recruiting people for his or her company. Job fairs can be a great way to meet new employers. This gives you a chance to ask the employer questions about job opportunities and learn more about the companys hiring process. The biggest complaint I hear from job fairs is that you still have to apply online with many companies, but the upside is the face-to-face connection makes you more than just another resume on the pile. Networking, taking advantage of resources, participating in seminars and doing informational interviews will take you much farther than sitting in front of I would also like to encourage you to visit the new CFEC.org website and upload your resume. Many employers are looking there for you.
