Jared Taylor and Kameron Cartier do typical college guy stuff when theyre together. They love playing video games and watching University of Central Florida football and basketball games. Most of their times together end up including some fast food and laughs. But their friendship isnt so typical. Cartier was diagnosed as developmentally delayed as a baby and Taylor is a UCF student studying occupational therapy. They bonded after meeting through the UCF Best Buddies program. The schools branch of the organization matches college students with people with intellectual disabilities about their age. The program, which has been around since 1991 and has 75 college students and 45 buddies, hopes to encourage lasting friendships, beyond college even, between them. It really isnt that much for the college student to do, but to the buddy, that is a memory theyll have for the rest of their lives, said Cary Ombres, the lead program manager for UCF. Its a life-changing thing for these buddies. The college students are encouraged to expose their buddies to college life activities Taylor and Cartier love donning their black and gold for UCF football games in the fall and, one of their favorite activities, having lunch on campus back when Cartier was a student at an extended learning program provided by Orange County. We want to give them an opportunity to have the same experience, Ombres said. A natural pairTaylor and Cartier, both 22, have been friends since they joined the program three years ago. Now, they hang out for a few hours at least twice a month, and spend time talking on the phone a few times a week. They were matched out, and their common love for competition, sports and funny movies has created a connection between them that Taylor admitted he didnt anticipate. I wasnt expecting a friendTaylor, whos co-president of the UCF program. But here they are, three years later, laughing as they play Wii Bowling in Taylors living room. Cartier consistently crushes him in the game, Taylor said, and he thinks it might be his exaggerated throw he gets strikes almost every time. though, was over girls. In their had some girlfriend problems. He would call Taylor for advice, and eventually found a solution to his troubles just one example of how people with intellectual disabilities are just like us, Taylor said. Ive learned from Kameron that people with intellectual disabilities are exactly the same, Taylor said. They feel the same things, say the same things, do the same things, just in a different way. Taylor said he loves being around Cartier because hes always happy, which can be a relief when most of his friends are stressed college students. He gives me a high on life, Taylor said. Hes the most friendly person Ive ever met. Cartier loves Taylor, too, his mom, Wanda Cartier, said. If she tells him that Taylor is going to hang out with him, that very minute hell head up the stairs, get dressed and sit and wait even if PHOTO BY BRITTNI JOHNSON THE VOICEBest Buddies pair Jared Taylor and Kameron Cartier play Wii Bowling together at Cartiers Orlando home.

For Taylor, that isnt enough. His goal is to give Cartier what any pair of friends could hope for. Were best friends for life, he said.BUDDIES | Unlikely lifelong friends CONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 searching education at MIT, Christine Ortiz decided the only way to revamp the education system was to start from scratch. The public school system is said. Ortiz, who said that the one ily on standardized testing, isnt the way to go. The public school system allows excelling students to get bored, struggling ones to fall behind and even the average, quiet student to become ignored, she said. And so she founded private school Lawton Chiles Preparatory School (LCPS) two years ago. Class sizes are extremely small there are 13 staff members and only 39 students. Our focus is on individualization, said Ortiz, an MIT grad with two masters degrees. The ages and skill levels are dent gets a curriculum developed individually and based on their interests and ability. Ortiz said any type of student can succeed at her school, and she caters to students who are highly gifted, learning disabled and everything in between. Itll actually cultivate his individual talents and work with his strengths and let him be an individual, said Eric Ferro, who enyear at LCPS.Consistent trendThe trend of alternative school choices isnt a new one, and Florida is No. 3 in the nation for amount of charter schools. Seminole County only has three, but there are numerous magnet schools and a virtual school. Charter schools are different, but are public schools. They receive state funding based on the number of full-time students enrolled just like a district school, but then pay a 5 percent administration fee to the state. The charters are free from many of the restrictions put on traditional public schools, but do have to adhere to the same set of educational standards and benchmarks, including the FCAT. Many focus on special needs or missions, for example an arts and technology focus, at-risk children or children with disabilities. LCPS is a private school, however, which means the guidelines for her school are very open the state has virtually no control over her curriculum or grading standards and theres no FCAT. Ortiz looked into being a charter school too restricting for her curriculum. Bill Vogel, Seminole County Public School superintendent, said he supports charter schools and alternative private schools, as long as they are held accountable to state standards and provide excellent education to students. He disagrees that the system is broken, citing Seminole Countys excellent education record. I dont want any school in Seminole County that lowers expectations for students, he said.More choicesAlternative schools are succeeding because parents want options, especially if their children arent succeeding in traditional public schools, where its so hard to innovate due to state restrictions, said Michele Gill, an associate professor at the UCF college of education and the chair of the school board at the Galileo School for Gift Learning, a Seminole County charter school. He excels better as TJ, not as all the other kids, Troy Yeagley said about his son, who was a student at Harbor School for the last three years, now LCPS. Were such an individualized country, so to have different choices is a really good thing, Gill said. State Sen. David Simmons (RMaitland) agreed. Charter schools also provide a critical need and the both of them can work together, he said.Untraditional optionLCPS is as untraditional as it gets, and its founder is no exception. Although Ortiz is professionally dressed, her heels are splashed with color, shes got an eyebrow piercing and shes just 28 years old. She jokes that shes got an exercise ball to bounce on instead bored too easily. Scribbles of notes about students and to-dos decowall. But being younger and more approachable only gets her so far with students, who can see insincerity a mile away, she said. What wins her students over is how she knows them as people, not just a pupil in a class. Theyre Facebook friends, they call her cell phone and text her when they need something. Ortiz can buy each of her teen students something for Christmas that they actually like no easy feat, she said. Thats something you cant have in a bigger system, she said. The futureGill said that she doesnt think charter and private schools will replace traditional schools anytime in the future, even while the current political climate is so supportive of them. Ortiz said she hopes that her school can grow, make a difference in education as well. I have no idea where public education is going, Ortiz said. But I know what we can do in this building.PHOTO BY BRITTNI JOHNSON THE VOICEChristine Ortiz is revamping education from the inside out in Oviedo.Learning for the individualBRITTNI JOHNSON The Voice Learn moreFor more information about Lawton Chiles Preparatory School, visit www.chilesprep. com.

Sept. 23 Oct. 6, 2011 Page 8 Seminole Voice Note to editor: Heres the rest of my Top 10 Soil Improvement Tips updated from my column of 16 years ago. Some ideas are timeless, so please dont dock me for a little plagiarism of my own work. Central Floridas 10-month gardening season begins now, running clear through until the Fourth of July. Our soils have been washed clean of many nutrients from eons of pounding thunderstorms and scorching sunlight. To create a reliable foundation when building our gardens, try using a few of these practical tips. 6. Beans, clover, vetch, rye, buckwheat and sunn hemp cover crops capture carbon dioxide and nitrogen from the atmosphere. The carbon is then sequestered into the soil for centuries; the nitrogen is available for plant growth this season. Harvest the above ground portions of cover crops to use as mulch. Integrate the root portions by turning and tilling them into the soil. Flowering cover crops attract and feed cultivation to vegetable crop growing seasons. 7. Wide-growing beds are the best way to mange garden space. They are sized based on human anatomy, not mechanical equipment. (Industrial farming techniques releases billions of tons of carbon into the atmosphere.) To leave the soil loose and friable, never walk on the growing beds. Intensive combination planting in wide beds is possible, allowing for greater crop production from less area. Plants growing in wide areas versus linear rows create their own shaded canopy, protecting the soil. 8. Any soil exposed to the sun needs to be mulched. The sun oxidizes soil amendments, sublimating them back to the air. Earthworms, crickets and other zone between the soil and mulch. A combined paper layer under leaf mulch placed at planting time will suppress weed germination. 9. Earthworms indicate and improve healthy soil. Soil structure, drainage, and moisture retention improve when earthworms are present. Hot, dry sand, chemical fertilizers, synthetic pesticides, and heavy cultivation will harm earthworms. An earthworm tub is a great way to compost kitchen scraps. Water, drain, and capture from the tub earthworm tea to create an unsurpassed growing elixir. 10. The minerals and nutrients available to us through plants are derived from living soil microbes: mycorrhizal fungus, bacteria and algae. Healthy, living soil grows healthy plants that resist insect and disease pests, are more nutritious, and taste better. These microbes depend on us to replenish the soil components on which the izers supplant the microbes in the food chain, but for how long?Notes Bahia Shrine Center.

The Knights are up against their biggest opponent of the season so far as they head to BYU (1-2) on Friday, Sept. 23. Coming off a tough loss against FIU, the Knights will be looking for a rebound to catapult them into conference play. Theyll have a tough game ahead of them back theyve seen this season.

The Knights could capitalize also thrown four interceptions to go with his three touchdown passes. Godfrey, who has 156 yards on the ground, has only thrown for 468 yards so far not bad by UCF standards which The Knights will be looking to mobilize more offense this week after only entering the end zone once last week. In that game, a promising trip to face an up-and-coming team turned into a nightmare for the Knights, who crumbled under the weight of penalties and botched plays in a 17-10 loss to FIU on Sept. 17. The Knights entered the game on a roll, 2-0 on the season after wins to start off 2011. But they faced an FIU team with an identical record that was bent on derailing them. They did so by pressuring Godfrey into making costly errors that would turn the tide of the game, which never was fully out of reach for the Knights, but never in their hands. More than 70 yards of penalties and two lost fumbles turned what looked like a win on paper into a narrow loss for the Knights, who led until 6 seconds left in the they watched in horror as a fumble was returned 51 yards for a touchdown that tied the game. out-gaining FIU 300 yards to 238. The ball much longer, and converted more third downs. FIU led in nearly no offensive categories. But on defense, the Panthers kept the Knights, particularly Godfrey, on their toes. They would sack Godfrey six times on the night, with those sacks adding up to nearly all of the 42 yards the Knights would lose on the ground. Both of the fumbles that the Panthers recovered turned into touchdowns. Those touchdowns would spell the difference between victory and defeat for the Knights. Though the Knights enter their game against BYU with a perfect 16-of-16 record way there to win.

Hate crimes shift targetWe must recognize that how Americans treat each other sets the tone for how the rest of the world treats Americans. Our country has always wrestled hand, we stand proudly as a nation of immigrants, a so-called melting pot that embraces people of all types and blends can. On the other hand, throughout our history we have endured staggering divisions along lines of race, ethnicity, culture, nationality and more. So have the aftershocks of Sept. 11 brought us closer together? Few things say more about human relations than hate crimes, which erupt when inner prejudices explode to the surface. For the past 20 years, the Florida an annual report detailing hate crimes reported to the state by police. The most recent assessment, for 2009, shows the fewest hate crimes in the reports history. But when we step back from that snapshot and instead look at the bigger picture, what emerges is a pattern not of declining antagonisms but of changing targets. Not surprisingly, the period immediately following the Sept. 11 attacks saw a dramatic spike in hate crime incidents in Florida, particularly those based on religion or national origin. Since that terrible day 10 years ago, the percentage of reported hate crimes based on the victims religion has grown by more ethnicity or national origin has jumped by more than two-thirds. Over the same time period, the share of hate crimes based on a victims race or color has fallen 24 percent. these numbers seem to suggest that Florida has become somewhat more tolerant in the area of race relations but has become less accepting of those whose faith or origin set them apart. We must recognize that our shared history over the past 10 years has not necessarily brought us closer together nor diminished the hate that exists; sometimes, it has merely changed the target. life, the families left behind and our collective responsibility for sustaining and maintaining peace in our world.Donna Elam Chair, Florida Commission on Human Relations Letters to the Editor Something grander than sport tranversity of Central Florida on the night of Sept. 10, as more than 45,000 people missing from American life.

But then big city dreams took him to Boston College, where he played lacrosse for four years while he earned an economics degree, then to Wall Street, the World Trade Center. There he saw the bright lights of the of unrestrained capitalism as he worked And then, like the iconic Citizen Kane director who bore his namesake, he railed against it. Not long before Sept. 11, 2001, he told his father he would go crazy behind a want to spend his life chasing after Ten years later, thats how hes remembered, though he never wore a Not many would know about the dreams of that seemingly typical young man had he not become what is now atypical in our increasingly competitive society. But 12 people who may have faced with a choice to leave his coworkers behind, he instead lost his life saving theirs. After a pair of UCF students watched an ESPN documentary about and down the stairs of the World Trade Center to rescue victims in the hour after the South Tower was hit, they wanted to do something to remember him.

Jared Taylor and Kameron Cartier do typical college guy stuff when theyre together. They love playing video games and watching University of Central Florida football and basketball games. Most of their times together end up including some fast food and laughs. But their friendship isnt so typical. Cartier was diagnosed as developmentally delayed as a baby and Taylor is a UCF student studying occupational therapy. They bonded after meeting through the UCF Best Buddies program. The schools branch of the organization matches college students with people with intellectual disabilities about their age. The program, which has been around since 1991 and has 75 college students and 45 buddies, hopes to encourage lasting friendships, beyond college even, between them. It really isnt that much for the college student to do, but to the buddy, that is a memory theyll have for the rest of their lives, said Cary Ombres, the lead program manager for UCF. Its a life-changing thing for these buddies.

Now, they hang out for a few hours at least twice a month, and spend time talking on the phone a few times a week.

The public school system is said. Ortiz, who said that the one ily on standardized testing, isnt the way to go. The public school system allows excelling students to get bored, struggling ones to fall behind and even the average, quiet student to become ignored, she said. And so she founded private school Lawton Chiles Preparatory School (LCPS) two years ago. Class sizes are extremely small there are 13 staff members and only 39 students. Our focus is on individualization, said Ortiz, an MIT grad with two masters degrees. The ages and skill levels are dent gets a curriculum developed individually and based on their interests and ability. Ortiz said any type of student can succeed at her school, and she caters to students who are highly gifted, learning disabled and everything in between. Itll actually cultivate his individual talents and work with his strengths and let him be an individual, said Eric Ferro, who enyear at LCPS.Consistent trendThe trend of alternative school choices isnt a new one, and Florida is No. 3 in the nation for amount of charter schools. Seminole County only has three, but there are numerous magnet schools and a virtual school. Charter schools are different, but are public schools. They receive state funding based on the number of full-time students enrolled just like a district school, but then pay a 5 percent administration fee to the state. The charters are free from many of the restrictions put on traditional public schools, but do have to adhere to the same set of educational standards and benchmarks, including the FCAT. Many focus on special needs or missions, for example an arts and technology focus, at-risk children or children with disabilities. LCPS is a private school, however, which means the guidelines for her school are very open the state has virtually no control over her curriculum or grading standards and theres no FCAT. Ortiz looked into being a charter school too restricting for her curriculum. Bill Vogel, Seminole County Public School superintendent, said he supports charter schools and alternative private schools, as long as they are held accountable to state standards and provide excellent education to students. He disagrees that the system is broken, citing Seminole Countys excellent education record. I dont want any school in Seminole County that lowers expectations for students, he said.More choicesAlternative schools are succeeding because parents want options, especially if their children arent succeeding in traditional public schools, where its so hard to innovate due to state restrictions, said Michele Gill, an associate professor at the UCF college of education and the chair of the school board at the Galileo School for Gift Learning, a Seminole County charter school. He excels better as TJ, not as all the other kids, Troy Yeagley said about his son, who was a student at Harbor School for the last three years, now LCPS. Were such an individualized country, so to have different choices is a really good thing, Gill said. State Sen. David Simmons (RMaitland) agreed. Charter schools also provide a critical need and the both of them can work together, he said.Untraditional optionLCPS is as untraditional as it gets, and its founder is no exception. Although Ortiz is professionally dressed, her heels are splashed with color, shes got an eyebrow piercing and shes just 28 years old. She jokes that shes got an exercise ball to bounce on instead bored too easily. Scribbles of notes about students and to-dos decowall. But being younger and more approachable only gets her so far with students, who can see insincerity a mile away, she said. What wins her students over is how she knows them as people, not just a pupil in a class. Theyre Facebook friends, they call her cell phone and text her when they need something. Ortiz can buy each of her teen students something for Christmas that they actually like no easy feat, she said. Thats something you cant have in a bigger system, she said. The futureGill said that she doesnt think charter and private schools will replace traditional schools anytime in the future, even while the current political climate is so supportive of them. Ortiz said she hopes that her school can grow, make a difference in education as well. I have no idea where public education is going, Ortiz said. But I know what we can do in this building.PHOTO BY BRITTNI JOHNSON THE VOICEChristine Ortiz is revamping education from the inside out in Oviedo.Learning for the individualBRITTNI JOHNSON The Voice Learn moreFor more information about Lawton Chiles Preparatory School, visit www.chilesprep. com.

Sept. 23 Oct. 6, 2011 Page 8 Seminole Voice Note to editor: Heres the rest of my Top 10 Soil Improvement Tips updated from my column of 16 years ago. Some ideas are timeless, so please dont dock me for a little plagiarism of my own work. Central Floridas 10-month gardening season begins now, running clear through until the Fourth of July. Our soils have been washed clean of many nutrients from eons of pounding thunderstorms and scorching sunlight. To create a reliable foundation when building our gardens, try using a few of these practical tips. 6. Beans, clover, vetch, rye, buckwheat and sunn hemp cover crops capture carbon dioxide and nitrogen from the atmosphere. The carbon is then sequestered into the soil for centuries; the nitrogen is available for plant growth this season. Harvest the above ground portions of cover crops to use as mulch. Integrate the root portions by turning and tilling them into the soil. Flowering cover crops attract and feed cultivation to vegetable crop growing seasons. 7. Wide-growing beds are the best way to mange garden space. They are sized based on human anatomy, not mechanical equipment. (Industrial farming techniques releases billions of tons of carbon into the atmosphere.) To leave the soil loose and friable, never walk on the growing beds. Intensive combination planting in wide beds is possible, allowing for greater crop production from less area. Plants growing in wide areas versus linear rows create their own shaded canopy, protecting the soil. 8. Any soil exposed to the sun needs to be mulched. The sun oxidizes soil amendments, sublimating them back to the air. Earthworms, crickets and other zone between the soil and mulch. A combined paper layer under leaf mulch placed at planting time will suppress weed germination. 9. Earthworms indicate and improve healthy soil. Soil structure, drainage, and moisture retention improve when earthworms are present. Hot, dry sand, chemical fertilizers, synthetic pesticides, and heavy cultivation will harm earthworms. An earthworm tub is a great way to compost kitchen scraps. Water, drain, and capture from the tub earthworm tea to create an unsurpassed growing elixir. 10. The minerals and nutrients available to us through plants are derived from living soil microbes: mycorrhizal fungus, bacteria and algae. Healthy, living soil grows healthy plants that resist insect and disease pests, are more nutritious, and taste better. These microbes depend on us to replenish the soil components on which the izers supplant the microbes in the food chain, but for how long?Notes Bahia Shrine Center.

In that game, a promising trip to face an up-and-coming team turned into a nightmare for the Knights, who crumbled under the weight of penalties and botched plays in a 17-10 loss to FIU on Sept. 17. The Knights entered the game on a roll, 2-0 on the season after wins to start off 2011. But they faced an FIU team with an identical record that was bent on derailing them. They did so by pressuring Godfrey into making costly errors that would turn the tide of the game, which never was fully out of reach for the Knights, but never in their hands. More than 70 yards of penalties and two lost fumbles turned what looked like a win on paper into a narrow loss for the Knights, who led until 6 seconds left in the they watched in horror as a fumble was returned 51 yards for a touchdown that tied the game. out-gaining FIU 300 yards to 238.

They would sack Godfrey six times on the night, with those sacks adding up to nearly all of the 42 yards the Knights would lose on the ground. Both of the fumbles that the Panthers recovered turned into touchdowns. Those touchdowns would spell the difference between victory and defeat for the Knights.

Hate crimes shift targetWe must recognize that how Americans treat each other sets the tone for how the rest of the world treats Americans. Our country has always wrestled hand, we stand proudly as a nation of immigrants, a so-called melting pot that embraces people of all types and blends can. On the other hand, throughout our history we have endured staggering divisions along lines of race, ethnicity, culture, nationality and more. So have the aftershocks of Sept. 11 brought us closer together? Few things say more about human relations than hate crimes, which erupt when inner prejudices explode to the surface. For the past 20 years, the Florida an annual report detailing hate crimes reported to the state by police. The most recent assessment, for 2009, shows the fewest hate crimes in the reports history. But when we step back from that snapshot and instead look at the bigger picture, what emerges is a pattern not of declining antagonisms but of changing targets. Not surprisingly, the period immediately following the Sept. 11 attacks saw a dramatic spike in hate crime incidents in Florida, particularly those based on religion or national origin. Since that terrible day 10 years ago, the percentage of reported hate crimes based on the victims religion has grown by more ethnicity or national origin has jumped by more than two-thirds. Over the same time period, the share of hate crimes based on a victims race or color has fallen 24 percent. these numbers seem to suggest that Florida has become somewhat more tolerant in the area of race relations but has become less accepting of those whose faith or origin set them apart. We must recognize that our shared history over the past 10 years has not necessarily brought us closer together nor diminished the hate that exists; sometimes, it has merely changed the target. life, the families left behind and our collective responsibility for sustaining and maintaining peace in our world.Donna Elam Chair, Florida Commission on Human Relations Letters to the Editor Something grander than sport tranversity of Central Florida on the night of Sept. 10, as more than 45,000 people missing from American life.

The affable young man who grew up in the village of Nyack, just north of New York City, had small-town dreams of becomred bandanna matching perfectly with his red jumpsuit and helmet.
