Winter Springs is on its worst losing streak of the season Blue bears > 10 Check out our photos from the Winter Springs Festival Art springs > 4 Her roar > 5 Oviedo resident heals by helping others deal with cancer A steady, light rain and occa sional umbrella-breaking gusts of wind didnt stop patrons from coming out to the Oviedo Malls newly branded Food Truck Cra zy event earlier this month. The Oct. 9 event, which was managed in previous months by local food truck coordinator Mark Baratelli of TheDailyCity. com, brought out seven food trucks and a crowd that trickled in light and steady, just like the rain. New event coordinator Liz Otts, president and planner of the Florida Business Expo, said she was pleased with the turnout considering the weather and that an event of this kind. I think weve been doing pretty well despite all this, she said, motioning to the soaked parking lot surrounding her while holding up the hood of her yellow raincoat. Im happy this many people are braving this weather to come out here. Across the street from the Oviedo Mall, in the Lowes Home Improvement parking lot, anoth er food truck event was planned to coincide with this one, run by Baratelli, who has been holding food truck gatherings all around Central Florida since March. After a contract disagreement regarding the management of the Oviedo Mall event, Baratelli parted ways with the mall. But he decided to continue his sec ond-Sunday Oviedo event, feel ing he had built up a big enough following in the area that he could counter his former partner at a similar location at the same time. His event had drawn more than 3,000 patrons to the mall some months and more than 20 food truck vendors. Unfortunately, he said, the storm Otts team weathered got in the way, and he rescheduled the Oviedo stop of the Food Truck Bazaar for this Sunday, Oct. 23, still at Lowes.

As my previous career kind of wound down, I started to re ally evaluate what I wanted to spend the next 20 years of my life doing, Simmons said. And I wanted to do something that would really impact someone in a positive way.

The airport was awarded a $10.6 million federal grant to buy land to expand the airports main run way, Congressman John Mica an nounced Sept. 29. As chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Mica helped lead the push for the Federal Aviation Administration grant money for the airport. That land purchase grant will help the airport to gobble up eight different parcels of land totaling more than 33 acres to the east of its largest runway, clearing the way airplanes to land in Sanford rather than Orlando International Airport, Mica said. By acquiring the land to im prove and expand the runway at the airport, we can bring in newer quieter passenger aircraft and gen erally improve safety, Mica said in a released statement.

The airport currently spreads across more than 2,000 acres of land, with four runways servic the longest and widest of the air ports runways at 9,600 feet long by 150 feet wide, will be expanded to 11,000 feet with the help of the grant. It allows the planes to have heavier loads, which allows more commerce at a lesser cost, San ford Mayor Jeff Triplett said. Construction is slated to begin in October 2012. Orlando Sanford International has expanded dramatically since scheduled commercial airline ser vice. That year the airport carried 48,186 passengers, 2,219 of whom 2008, the airport peaked at 1.84 them arriving from abroad. By 2010 that number had fallen to Orlando Sanford International Airport President Larry Dale said that the longer runway, along with other expansion plans, will help to improve the airports economic impact which he said totals $2.3 billion annually in the area. I think as the airport contin not only Sanford and Seminole County but also Central Florida, Dale said. Oviedo-Winter Springs Re gional Chamber of Commerce President Cory Skeates is already thinking ahead to the kind of role the airport could play in develop ing the areas economic future. Hes been in talks to bring European business investors via charter planes through Orlando Sanford International to entice them into developing businesses along the Seminole Way corridor Orlando Sanford as a conduit to bring in some of that business, Skeates said. We said rain or shine, but severe weather warnings and 40-mile-an-hour wind gusts are more than rain, he said. I felt it was unsafe for the sake of the trucks and the people coming out, so weve rescheduled. Now Oviedo will have double the opportunity to experience the family fun food-trucking fad at least for October a silver lining to a food truck turf shakeup. Turf tension Its just business, Otts of Food Truck Crazy said regarding the dispute over the running of the Oviedo Mall event. Ill focus on what Im doing and let them do their own thing. Baratelli said thats exactly what he plans to do this month in the Bazaars temporary home at Lowes. He hopes to continue them monthly once the gathering in the city. He said the event is fun, fam ily friendly and all about food. He stresses that the relationships hes had with other food truck event coordinators in the area have always been ones of friend ly, non-competitive camarade rie, all taking their followings of trucks individually around the region. Except for now, he said. In Oviedo, I will compete, because that was my event. Following his split with the mall, Baratelli said he received a touching amount of support from the food trucks he regularly gathers. It almost made me cry when they said theyd stay loyal to me, he said. Proof that its just about keeping good relation ships with people. His average events, he esti mated, gather anywhere from 15 to 20 different food trucks at each meet up. Otts said she has capped the number of food trucks that can participate at the mall at 10 to keep the event more intimate and family friendly as she works to put her own spin on the food truck craze. Were working on reinvent ing it, said Sara Steffes, market ing manager of the Oviedo Mall. We owe it to the community that we keep the event going to go along with the revitalization of the mall. Meals on wheels The closet thing Baratelli said he can think of to compare to the food truck gatherings that are sweeping Central Florida is that of a traveling circus. Its just a bunch of trucks in a parking lot, and thats enough to draw out thousands of people, he said with a laugh. From Mexican to barbeque for dinner and Italian ice to French crepes for dessert, these food truck events cater to anyones food palate. Every other city around Or lando seems to have one now, said Maria Salazar, the owner of the Tastebuds food truck. Shes owned her truck for the past the market take off over the past year or so. Why now? Some, like Sylvia Ramby, the owner of the Travel ing Gourmet truck, said in this economy running a truck instead of a restaurant is the smart way to go. This was a lot cheaper than a restaurant, and a ton more Otts, who is just getting her feet wet in the food truck world said although it might be a trend now, the idea of the locally owned food truck businesses could be sustainable long-term. A lot of people say its just a fad, and theres probably some truth to that, she said. But ev eryones got to eat. Whether its from a food truck or just food in general, I think well be able to evolve with it.

Page 3 Seminole Voice Oct. 21 Nov. 3, 2011 October has brought a roller coaster of events to us locally and nationally. Our best wishes and prayers go out to Seminole County Sheriff Don Eslingers son, Don Jr., for a full and speedy recovery from wounds sustained in Afghanistan. This month we lost a Geneva resident on Osceola Road from a high-speed impact with a tree. Over the years, Osceola Road has claimed lives time after time due to the fatal mix of speed, curves and darkness. Sadly, we also lost a resident on Lake Harney Circle who accidentally drove into a pond and was unable to get out of his truck. The world also lost vision ary Steve Jobs, and I cant help picturing a distant star in the shape of an apple. How tragic that we also must mourn the loss of IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon, who leaves behind a beautiful young family. He died doing what he loved, but he surely left us too soon. River rising While thousands are occupying Wall Street, the St. Johns River is now occupying much of the properties and pastures along its banks. With just a few days of heavy rain here and to our southeast, the river has risen even surpass 8.5 feet, which is Advanced Hydrologic Prediction When you click on the Lake Harney point it will give you the charts and tables with actual and predicted water levels. We Lake Harney seems to be the only would think this would be an issue for the St. Johns River Water Management District to review. We remember not only Fay in August 2008 but also heavy downpours in mid-May 2009 that raised the river quickly with a few days of unnamed rainfall. Driving safety Safe driving is such a basic topic, yet making it happen seems to elude our communities nearly every day. We see the roadside markers of so many fatalities as we drive to work and on our er rands. My pet peeves range from folks driving without headlights at dusk and in rain to those who speed on dirt roads. Add water and potholes to roads that are deteriorating by heavy rain, and you have a perfect recipe for a vehicle out of control. Last week while our own dirt road was still covered with inches of water, dug-out gullies and holes where parts were impossible to tell how deep the water and holes the road in their vehicles with no consideration that they were further diminishing the road. Halloween is coming Monday, Oct. 31, is the third an nual Trunk or Treating & Haunt ed Hoop Halloween event at Focal Point Landscaping Nursery, held from 5 p.m.-8:30 p.m. If you want to participate as a trunker with a decorated vehicle (mo torcycles are also welcome) to hand out candy, contact Liz at liz@focalpointlandscape.com vehicle. Candy will be handed out to kids in costume, and prizes for best decorated vehicle will be awarded. Fall Festival Come celebrate the change of sea sons at the First United Methodist Church of Geneva at the fall festi val this Saturday, Oct. 22, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Everyone is asked to bring a non-perishable food item people in our community. Enjoy wonderful food, music, face painting, arts and craft vendors, pumpkins and fantastic bargains at the Methodist Church Thrift House next door. Call Connie information or to secure a space for $10. Geneva parents dont forget that next week, Oct. 24-28, is Red Ribbon Week at Geneva El ementary. Lets support our kids with information and education against drugs. Big events are coming up in our community. Get your calendars handy so that you will not miss out on the happenings. I wish I could say get out your winter clothes, as we are due for a cold front and that would make all of us feel in the spirit of fall. Guess we will wait a while longer. Dont forget now is the time to get your Halloween costume. Family fun day We will start with some up coming events: Backstreet Pizza is hosting its first Family Fun Day on Sunday, Oct. 23, with a kick-off at 3 p.m. The pizza shop is located 1949 W. County Road 419 in Oviedo. There will be face painting, games, treats and pizza tossing and cham pion Ryan LaRosa will be there. All children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes. Pumpkin Patch still open The Pumpkin Patch spon sored by the youth group of the First United Methodist Church of Oviedo will stay open until Monday, Oct. 31. Best get that great pumpkin now. The patch is located under a white tent on Red Bug Lake Road next the Centra Care and across from Lowes. Students will be selling all sizes of pumpkins, gourds and fall decorations and along with carving decorations and accessories. Proceeds will benefit summer youth mission trips. Story time is available for preschool students by contact ing OrlandoBet@aol.com or Great Day in the Country Just around the corner is the 38th annual Great Day in the Country arts and crafts festi val on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. located 200 W. Broadway and the corner of Lake Jessup in downtown Oviedo. The annual festival is presented by the Oviedo Womans Club, and proceeds from the event go to scholar ships and community projects. We will have something for all entertainment, childrens area, food, drinks, student arts and plenty of crafters. Do come early as parking can be at a premium. I think it may be the biggest show in town as the event draws anywhere from 55,000-60,000 citizens. See you there! Fall plant sale Seems to me that Saturday, Nov. 12, is very popular, as the Oviedo Garden Club fall plant sale will be held 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. This is a very popular spot for purchasing that special plant. The members of the Oviedo Garden Club are diligently planning for their semi-annual plant sale that will be held on the corner of Broadway Street and Aulin Avenue, short walk from the annual Great Day in the County event located at the Lawton House and Lawton Elementary School grounds. The plant sale has been a tradi tion of the club or decades. Club members grow many of the plants in their own back yards, tenderly care for them for months and put them into pots ready for transplanting into neighborhood yard. Many of the clubs thirty members are available to readily share their plant knowledge and experi ence with purchasers. The plants area reasonable priced and proceeds are given to local groups such as Florida Trail, the Ed Yarborough Nature Cen ter and the Seminole County Natural Program as well as gardening books for a the local library and other environmen tal related projects. If you need more information, please call Crazy for food trucks The very popular Food Truck Crazy has really been a great success at the Oviedo Mall on Sunday afternoons and early evenings, please mark your calendar events for the already scheduled event at the mall on Nov. 13 and Dec. 11 and other additional trucks will be on board. Food Truck Crazy can be website at Info@FoodTruck Crazy.com. Mall walking takes off Quip: Had to laugh the other day at our Oviedo Womans Club meeting. There was a sheet to sign up to walk at the different malls (Florida Mall, Seminole Towne Center and our Oviedo Mall). My friends and I love walking in the mall and looking at the changes. Most of our ladies have been walk ing since the mall was opened in late 1999. We always invite other gals to come join us. We pop in around 8:30 a.m. where Bed, Bath & Beyond store use to be. A thought Some people march to a different drummer and some people polka.

The School of Rock opened its doors with a guitar-smashing duel between Oviedo Mayor Dominic Persampiere and Winter Springs Mayor Charles Lacey. I was more than happy to come out and support any new business that comes to our area, especially one that takes an interest in chil dren, Persampiere said. Its an incredible place and I can now scratch smashing a guitar off my bucket list. He said he thinks the business will do well because its not only in a good area but is also run with heart. Its great when you meet own ers that have a labor of love, and its what this is to me, Persamp iere said. Theyre doing this be they can make a living off of it is secondary, and you dont see that a lot in this world. Rock life Kelly and Erick Peacon said their 11-year-old son started taking les sons at the Coral Springs School of Rock a little more than a year ago, and he has enjoyed every moment since. Its like hes been doing it his whole life, Kelly said. He cant wait to get up on stage; hes really embraced it. Erick said the School of Rock has also been great at helping him develop more social skills. He wasnt very outgoing, but now he does a lot of interacting with other kids, Erick said. Its made him more well-rounded. The School of Rock has been teaching kids to rock on stage and in life for more than a decade. They take students from the lesson room to the stage, developing both their programs designed for all skill lev els. They operate 68 schools in 25 states and Mexico and are continu ing to expand. Dream job School of Rock music director Adam Balmert was a teacher for seven years before the perfect op portunity fell into his lap. This is a dream job, he said. This is the place you wish existed when you were a little kid. Balmert said he looks forward to sharing the experience with more kids. Its an awesome feeling to show the kids that they can do it and then see them up on stage hav ing fun, Balmert said. Theres nothing else Id rather do then teach kids to rock. Simmons is looking forward sharing his 30-plus years of ex perience playing the guitar with others, and giving kids the oppor tunity to have a place they can let loose and be themselves. They will really learn a lot of life lessons, and so much about he said. I know how much music has meant to me and I think for a lot of kids music is something that they can relate to and some thing that grounds them. Music is just one of those things that is always there for you.

One day, though, that changed. Two years ago, despite being barely 36 hours out of surgery, with a pink scarf wrapped around her head and wheelchair to sup port her, the always-tough Procell headed to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. That sunny day, while surrounded by other since she lost her long black hair, and her I felt the strength of the women around me, Procell said. A chance diagnosis come out of a family crisis. from his job, Procell went the route she al ways did in the face of trouble: She faced it head-on. In a week she would be without health insurance, so she headed to all the annual appointments she would have gone to in a few months, including one for her the nurse practitioner found a marble-sized lump in her breast. It was cancer. It was an indescribable feeling, she said, cer. Conquering with knowledge But Procell, an Oviedo resident, tackled the diagnosis with determination, hope and, most importantly, education. A notepad full of questions greeted each doctor she spoke to, a bookshelf full of educational material still stands in her living room and she attended every conference, seminar and meeting she could get to. She battled and won against health in surance companies when they refused to break down, and her life had to go on, espe cially for her two teenage daughters. counting on me, she said. Her approach to the disease was no sur prise to those close to her. four surgeries and chemotherapy in eight months. And throughout her treatment and recovery, Procell has used her story and hard to see why. The chance of a woman having breast cancer in her lifetime is about 12 percent, and there will be about 230,480 new cases in the U.S. this year, making it the most common cancer for women in the U.S. Those are staggering numbers, Procell said. Healing through sharing self, by sharing her story with other survi vors, family, friends and curious strangers wherever and whenever she can. She repre sents strength and survival for the Central the Cure foundation at local events where she speaks. She captivates people, said Stefanie Steele, mission manager at Susan G. Ko I bring Judy with me it becomes real to every single person there. I think people connect most when you share your story, Hannah Procell said. And when Procell tells her story, you see true mental and emotional toughness there are no tears when she speaks about her experience. Her knowledge seems end less, and her passion for education is clear. I always knew I was a strong woman, I said. Though her times of triumph outnumber them, there were moments when she felt scared and overwhelmed. One was when her husband got a job in Alaska and had to leave a week after her last surgery. I was frightened, Procell said. I was still in stitches and bandages driving him to the airport. But her community, temple congrega tion and family were there to support her. turning point in life. She learned what not ate her mom. walk away from that, Hannah said. Continuing to help Now the mother and daughter have teamed up, going beyond the races and conferenc es. Hannah and Procell have designed pink Roar for the Cure shirts that Hannah is selling at Oviedo High School, where Pro cell graduated from and her two daughters Hannah and Sarah currently attend. At the hope the crowd will pink out the game by wearing their roar shirts.

Red, round radishes are some of the simplest crops to grow in the garden. They are frequently planted as classroom projects be cause the seeds are manageable, they sprout in only a few days, and reach consumable size in just four weeks. But how many school kids are actually eager to eat their proudly proffered harvest tell you what, when the humble radish packs it in when growing conditions become too hot during the summer months, their valuepacked essence is sorely missed around my homestead! Radishes have been cultivated for thousands of years. Their wild stock, related to mustard greens and turnips, are found in Asia and Europe. Their name is derived from the ancient Greek etymon meaning rapid. In my garden, they frequently reappear as crosspollinated volunteers when the older plants go to seed. Beyond the simple round red radish, there are numerous types, many grown for more than their edible roots. In the round depart ment, the spectrum from dark red to pearly white, and every shade in between, are propagated. Packets of mixed seeds are avail able, offering a surprise at harvest time. Ballooning up from the inch diameter size, the Black Spanish radish, with its gnarly skin, has reached a six-inch diameter size in my garden. Another round variety to consider is the Water melon radish, which is one of the sweetest types, green on the outside and pink inside. Breakfast radish reaches matu rity in just three weeks. Pulled much later, they become pithy factor can be taken advantage of when considering inter-planting techniques in the intensively managed garden. Oriental Daikon radish grows long and white, and their shoulders may emerge sev eral inches above the soil. Daikons can be left to mature for several weeks longer than the round vari eties. Autumn or spring cultivars are available, as are sweet and hot choices. When radishes are grown in their element, their tops can be used as an alternative to turnip raw and soaked in a dressing renders them quite palatable. Of course, a steamed or boiled mess of greens is the most familiar use. I usually add some sauted scal lions and perilla (shiso) to crank garden recipe. Radishes are easily pickled to preserve the garden bounty. Pick ling garden crops is a whole arena at a later date. In the meantime, Sundew Gardens is planning a pickling workshop in the not too distant future, so stay in touch Getting radished this fall Tom Carey GARDEN From my to yours Tom Carey is the owner of Sundew Gardens, a you-pick gardening business in Oviedo.

Oct. 21 Nov. 3, 2011 Page 10 Seminole Voice ATHLETICS THIS WEEK in sports history Nov. 1, 1959 Jacques Plante of the Montreal Canadiens becomes the first NHL goaltender to wear a full facemask. Despite the coachs objection, Plante put his foot down, pointing out that hed already had four broken noses, a broken jaw, two broken cheekbones and almost 200 stitches in his head. The Lions will host a surprising Edgewater team that beat top-ranked Dr. Phillips, kicking off at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, at home. But the Lions (4-2) are coming off a 28-14 Oct. 13 loss to East River that killed the momentum they had built after beating Lake Howell and Hagerty in consecutive weeks. Now they may be facing their toughest chal lenge of the year against an Edgewater (4-1) team that is on a four-game winning streak heading into Friday night. The Eagles started the season with a loss be fore going on that long streak, including a 38-19 ers. In that game, the Eagles combined for 142 yards in the air and 177 yards on the ground. Most of them came courtesy of a combo of quarterback J.B. Woodman, who threw for 120 yards, and Alton Howard, who not only ran for 63 yards and caught 108 yards of receptions, but in a wild play tossed a 22-yard pass to John Altman. That could prove a tough scenario for the Lions, who have been sporadic on defense and offense this season, depending on the caliber of their opponents. When theyre outmatched, the Lions have given up an average of four touchdowns and scored an average of only 10 points. Hagerty dominates The Huskies (3-3) traveled all the way to Min season, winning 34-0. The Huskies defense dominated in the game, holding the Hawks to 149 total yards, while capitalizing on three fumbles to turn them into scores. Despite some offensive brilliance, Huskies quarterback Jason Driskel had to deal with some pressure, getting sacked once and throw ing an interception in the game. At 7:30 p.m. Friday theyll host an unde feated Lake Brantley (7-0) team thats fresh off a 42-20 smashing of Olympia. The Huskies will have to contend with one of the strongest rush ing teams in Seminole County football history. The Patriots Damon Haecker and Tion Green have rushed for more than 100 yards in almost every game this season. Against Olympia they ran for 252 yards and 192 yards, respectively. Bears beaten Winter Springs (1-5) is on its worst losing streak of the season after falling to Timber Creek 31-7 on Oct. 13. The Bears let the Wolves amass 325 total yards in the blowout. This week the Bears host Oak Ridge (4-2), coming off a win over Lake Howell. That game starts at 7:30 p.m. Fri day.

Kassity M. 8 years old We asked kids at the Winter Springs Festival of the Arts about their Halloween plans. Government shouldnt promote rallies nole County School Board inviting every body to a rally at their headquarters, the Educational Support Center in Sanford, prior to their most recent meeting: The PTA would like all people interested in showing their support for adequate funding from the Legislature to attend the rally from 3-6 pm. They will be wearing red as a show of solidarity. And what will happen if we dont show solidarity? closing more schools, cutting as band and chorus, raising class sizes in non-class-size amendment classrooms, increasing the temperatures in classrooms, eliminating or reducing busing to magnet programs, eliminating summer school, implementing a four-day workweek and a four day school week, implementing furloughs for employees, eliminating health insurance for employees working less than full time, consolidating schools into a K-12 model, implementing a payto-play program for athletics and other extra-curricular programs such as band, and eliminating the high school transition program. Two things stand out about this: First, imagine if a defense department employee used government resources to promote a rally to lobby for increased funding for the military the howls of outrage would reach the skies! Yet, here we have local government employees using government resources to promote a rally for increased funding. Second, note whats missing from their hit list: any trimming of administration or bureaucracy. No, if their funding de mands arent met, it will be the kids who have to pay. Theyve closed Longwood Elementary School to save money; Educational Support Center have been closed, too? Jeffrey Payne Winter Springs Letters to the Editor Too many people take the responsibility of pet ownership lightly. Slight errors in judgment, such as leaving a front door open a moment too long or neglecting a faulty latch on an outdoor fence, can have disastrous consequences for four-legged friends. On the loose, dogs are at risk of getting hit by a ve hicle putting themselves and the motorist in jeopardy. Even dogs without a history of aggressive behavior can be capable of attacking other dogs or people when let loose. But its not just slight over sights that many pet owners are guilty of. So many people decide to forego a leash when taking their dogs outside or bring dogs with aggressive tendencies to dog parks. Experts say that educa tion is key to keeping our furry friends and us safe. An estimated 4.7 million dog bites occur annually, accord ing to the American Humane Association. The Centers for Disease Control reported that 800,000 Americans seek medical attention for dog bites each year half of whom are children. Of those, 386,000 go to the emergency room and about 16 die. Simple steps can be taken to scale back the instances of dog attacks. About 92 percent of fatal dog attacks involved male dogs, 94 percent of whom were not neutered, accord ing to the National Canine Research Foundation. In fact, the Humane Society of the U.S. reported that unneutered dogs were 2.6 times more likely to bite than neutered dogs. Training and socializing a dog also reduces the risk of aggressive behavior. The American Humane Association says socialization with people and other animals is especially important for puppies between 8 and 16 weeks old. AHA also recommends restraining dogs with fences and leashes, but not tethering them, which can make them feel stressed and vulnerable. More than 80 percent of dog bites treated in the emer gency room involved children younger than 15, reported the CDC. Teaching a child how to properly play with dogs, supervising the child and dog when they are interacting and teaching a child how to ap proach dogs can dramatically reduce the risk of an attack. The consequences of ir responsible pet ownership can go below the surface. A pet thats been attacked may be come skittish and the victims owner may develop a fear of dogs. A motorist who hits a loose dog who ran in front of the vehicle has to live with that accident for a lifetime, even if it wasnt their fault. Pet ownership is increas ingly viewed as a right, not a privilege. But there are severe consequences when people do not educate themselves before becoming a pet parent. What it really boils down to is being a good neighbor. An essential piece of the healthy commu nity puzzle is safe pets.

The Oct. 9 event, which was managed in previous months by local food truck coordinator Mark Baratelli of TheDailyCity. com, brought out seven food trucks and a crowd that trickled in light and steady, just like the rain. New event coordinator Liz Otts, president and planner of the Florida Business Expo, said she was pleased with the turnout considering the weather and that an event of this kind. I think weve been doing pretty well despite all this, she said, motioning to the soaked parking lot surrounding her while holding up the hood of her yellow raincoat. Im happy this many people are braving this weather to come out here. Across the street from the Oviedo Mall, in the Lowes Home Improvement parking lot, another food truck event was planned to coincide with this one, run by Baratelli, who has been holding food truck gatherings all around Central Florida since March. After a contract disagreement regarding the management of the Oviedo Mall event, Baratelli parted ways with the mall. But he decided to continue his sec ond-Sunday Oviedo event, feeling he had built up a big enough following in the area that he could counter his former partner at a similar location at the same time. His event had drawn more than 3,000 patrons to the mall some months and more than 20 food truck vendors. Unfortunately, he said, the storm Otts team weathered got in the way, and he rescheduled the Oviedo stop of the Food Truck Bazaar for this Sunday, Oct. 23, still at Lowes.PHOTO BY SARAH WILSON THE VOICE Chef SSilvia, owner of the Travelling Gourmet food truck, hands eats to a hungry DailyCCity event attendee.

The airport was awarded a $10.6 million federal grant to buy land to expand the airports main run way, Congressman John Mica announced Sept. 29. As chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Mica helped lead the push for the Federal Aviation Administration grant money for the airport. That land purchase grant will help the airport to gobble up eight different parcels of land totaling more than 33 acres to the east of its largest runway, clearing the way airplanes to land in Sanford rather than Orlando International Airport, Mica said. By acquiring the land to im prove and expand the runway at the airport, we can bring in newer quieter passenger aircraft and gen erally improve safety, Mica said in a released statement.

The airport currently spreads across more than 2,000 acres of land, with four runways servic the longest and widest of the air ports runways at 9,600 feet long by 150 feet wide, will be expanded to 11,000 feet with the help of the grant. It allows the planes to have heavier loads, which allows more commerce at a lesser cost, Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett said. Construction is slated to begin in October 2012. Orlando Sanford International has expanded dramatically since scheduled commercial airline ser vice. That year the airport carried 48,186 passengers, 2,219 of whom 2008, the airport peaked at 1.84 them arriving from abroad. By 2010 that number had fallen to Orlando Sanford International Airport President Larry Dale said that the longer runway, along with other expansion plans, will help to improve the airports economic impact which he said totals $2.3 billion annually in the area. I think as the airport contin not only Sanford and Seminole County but also Central Florida, Dale said. Oviedo-Winter Springs Regional Chamber of Commerce President Cory Skeates is already thinking ahead to the kind of role the airport could play in develop ing the areas economic future. Hes been in talks to bring European business investors via charter planes through Orlando Sanford International to entice them into developing businesses along the Seminole Way corridor Orlando Sanford as a conduit to bring in some of that business, Skeates said. We said rain or shine, but severe weather warnings and 40-mile-an-hour wind gusts are more than rain, he said. I felt it was unsafe for the sake of the trucks and the people coming out, so weve rescheduled. Now Oviedo will have double the opportunity to experience the family fun food-trucking fad at least for October a silver lining to a food truck turf shakeup.Turf tensionIts just business, Otts of Food Truck Crazy said regarding the dispute over the running of the Oviedo Mall event. Ill focus on what Im doing and let them do their own thing. Baratelli said thats exactly what he plans to do this month in the Bazaars temporary home at Lowes. He hopes to continue them monthly once the gathering in the city. He said the event is fun, fam ily friendly and all about food. He stresses that the relationships hes had with other food truck event coordinators in the area have always been ones of friend ly, non-competitive camaraderie, all taking their followings of trucks individually around the region. Except for now, he said. In Oviedo, I will compete, because that was my event. Following his split with the mall, Baratelli said he received a touching amount of support from the food trucks he regularly gathers. It almost made me cry when they said theyd stay loyal to me, he said. Proof that its just about keeping good relation ships with people. His average events, he esti mated, gather anywhere from 15 to 20 different food trucks at each meet up. Otts said she has capped the number of food trucks that can participate at the mall at 10 to keep the event more intimate and family friendly as she works to put her own spin on the food truck craze. Were working on reinvent ing it, said Sara Steffes, market ing manager of the Oviedo Mall. We owe it to the community that we keep the event going to go along with the revitalization of the mall.Meals on wheelsThe closet thing Baratelli said he can think of to compare to the food truck gatherings that are sweeping Central Florida is that of a traveling circus. Its just a bunch of trucks in a parking lot, and thats enough to draw out thousands of people, he said with a laugh. From Mexican to barbeque for dinner and Italian ice to French crepes for dessert, these food truck events cater to anyones food palate. Every other city around Or lando seems to have one now, said Maria Salazar, the owner of the Tastebuds food truck. Shes owned her truck for the past the market take off over the past year or so. Why now? Some, like Sylvia Ramby, the owner of the Travel ing Gourmet truck, said in this economy running a truck instead of a restaurant is the smart way to go. This was a lot cheaper than a restaurant, and a ton more Otts, who is just getting her feet wet in the food truck world said although it might be a trend now, the idea of the locally owned food truck businesses could be sustainable long-term. A lot of people say its just a fad, and theres probably some truth to that, she said. But ev eryones got to eat. Whether its from a food truck or just food in general, I think well be able to evolve with it.

Page 3 Seminole Voice Oct. 21 Nov. 3, 2011 October has brought a roller coaster of events to us locally and nationally. Our best wishes and prayers go out to Seminole County Sheriff Don Eslingers son, Don Jr., for a full and speedy recovery from wounds sustained in Afghanistan. This month we lost a Geneva resident on Osceola Road from a high-speed impact with a tree. Over the years, Osceola Road has claimed lives time after time due to the fatal mix of speed, curves and darkness. Sadly, we also lost a resident on Lake Harney Circle who accidentally drove into a pond and was unable to get out of his truck. The world also lost vision ary Steve Jobs, and I cant help picturing a distant star in the shape of an apple. How tragic that we also must mourn the loss of IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon, who leaves behind a beautiful young family. He died doing what he loved, but he surely left us too soon.River risingWhile thousands are occupying Wall Street, the St. Johns River is now occupying much of the properties and pastures along its banks. With just a few days of heavy rain here and to our southeast, the river has risen even surpass 8.5 feet, which is Advanced Hydrologic Prediction When you click on the Lake Harney point it will give you the charts and tables with actual and predicted water levels. We Lake Harney seems to be the only would think this would be an issue for the St. Johns River Water Management District to review. We remember not only Fay in August 2008 but also heavy downpours in mid-May 2009 that raised the river quickly with a few days of unnamed rainfall. Driving safetySafe driving is such a basic topic, yet making it happen seems to elude our communities nearly every day. We see the roadside markers of so many fatalities as we drive to work and on our er rands. My pet peeves range from folks driving without headlights at dusk and in rain to those who speed on dirt roads. Add water and potholes to roads that are deteriorating by heavy rain, and you have a perfect recipe for a vehicle out of control. Last week while our own dirt road was still covered with inches of water, dug-out gullies and holes where parts were impossible to tell how deep the water and holes the road in their vehicles with no consideration that they were further diminishing the road. HHalloween is coming Monday, Oct. 31, is the third an nual Trunk or Treating & Haunt ed Hoop Halloween event at Focal Point Landscaping Nursery, held from 5 p.m.-8:30 p.m. If you want to participate as a trunker with a decorated vehicle (mo torcycles are also welcome) to hand out candy, contact Liz at liz@focalpointlandscape.com vehicle. Candy will be handed out to kids in costume, and prizes for best decorated vehicle will be awarded.Fall FestivalCome celebrate the change of seasons at the First United Methodist Church of Geneva at the fall festi val this Saturday, Oct. 22, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Everyone is asked to bring a non-perishable food item people in our community. Enjoy wonderful food, music, face painting, arts and craft vendors, pumpkins and fantastic bargains at the Methodist Church Thrift House next door. Call Connie information or to secure a space for $10. Geneva parents dont forget that next week, Oct. 24-28, is Red Ribbon Week at Geneva El ementary. Lets support our kids with information and education against drugs. Big events are coming up in our community. Get your calendars handy so that you will not miss out on the happenings. I wish I could say get out your winter clothes, as we are due for a cold front and that would make all of us feel in the spirit of fall. Guess we will wait a while longer. Dont forget now is the time to get your Halloween costume. Family fun dayWe will start with some upcoming events: Backstreet Pizza is hosting its first Family Fun Day on Sunday, Oct. 23, with a kick-off at 3 p.m. The pizza shop is located 1949 W. County Road 419 in Oviedo. There will be face painting, games, treats and pizza tossing and champion Ryan LaRosa will be there. All children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes.Pumpkin Patch still openThe Pumpkin Patch sponsored by the youth group of the First United Methodist Church of Oviedo will stay open until Monday, Oct. 31. Best get that great pumpkin now. The patch is located under a white tent on Red Bug Lake Road next the Centra Care and across from Lowes. Students will be selling all sizes of pumpkins, gourds and fall decorations and along with carving decorations and accessories. Proceeds will benefit summer youth mission trips. Story time is available for preschool students by contacting OrlandoBet@aol.com or Great Day in the CountryJust around the corner is the 38th annual Great Day in the Country arts and crafts festival on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. located 200 W. Broadway and the corner of Lake Jessup in downtown Oviedo. The annual festival is presented by the Oviedo Womans Club, and proceeds from the event go to scholar ships and community projects. We will have something for all entertainment, childrens area, food, drinks, student arts and plenty of crafters. Do come early as parking can be at a premium. I think it may be the biggest show in town as the event draws anywhere from 55,000-60,000 citizens. See you there!Fall plant saleSeems to me that Saturday, Nov. 12, is very popular, as the Oviedo Garden Club fall plant sale will be held 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. This is a very popular spot for purchasing that special plant. The members of the Oviedo Garden Club are diligently planning for their semi-annual plant sale that will be held on the corner of Broadway Street and Aulin Avenue, short walk from the annual Great Day in the County event located at the Lawton House and Lawton Elementary School grounds. The plant sale has been a tradition of the club or decades. Club members grow many of the plants in their own back yards, tenderly care for them for months and put them into pots ready for transplanting into neighborhood yard. Many of the clubs thirty members are available to readily share their plant knowledge and experi ence with purchasers. The plants area reasonable priced and proceeds are given to local groups such as Florida Trail, the Ed Yarborough Nature Cen ter and the Seminole County Natural Program as well as gardening books for a the local library and other environmen tal related projects. If you need more information, please call Crazy for food trucksThe very popular Food Truck Crazy has really been a great success at the Oviedo Mall on Sunday afternoons and early evenings, please mark your calendar events for the already scheduled event at the mall on Nov. 13 and Dec. 11 and other additional trucks will be on board. Food Truck Crazy can be website at Info@FoodTruckCrazy.com.Mall walking takes offQuip: Had to laugh the other day at our Oviedo Womans Club meeting. There was a sheet to sign up to walk at the different malls (Florida Mall, Seminole Towne Center and our Oviedo Mall). My friends and I love walking in the mall and looking at the changes. Most of our ladies have been walking since the mall was opened in late 1999. We always invite other gals to come join us. We pop in around 8:30 a.m. where Bed, Bath & Beyond store use to be.

Erick said the School of Rock has also been great at helping him develop more social skills. He wasnt very outgoing, but now he does a lot of interacting with other kids, Erick said. Its made him more well-rounded. The School of Rock has been teaching kids to rock on stage and in life for more than a decade. They take students from the lesson room to the stage, developing both their programs designed for all skill lev els. They operate 68 schools in 25 states and Mexico and are continu ing to expand. Dream jobSchool of Rock music director Adam Balmert was a teacher for seven years before the perfect op portunity fell into his lap. This is a dream job, he said. This is the place you wish existed when you were a little kid. Balmert said he looks forward to sharing the experience with more kids. Its an awesome feeling to show the kids that they can do it and then see them up on stage hav ing fun, Balmert said. Theres nothing else Id rather do then teach kids to rock. Simmons is looking forward sharing his 30-plus years of ex perience playing the guitar with others, and giving kids the oppor tunity to have a place they can let loose and be themselves. They will really learn a lot of life lessons, and so much about he said. I know how much music has meant to me and I think for a lot of kids music is something that they can relate to and something that grounds them. Music is just one of those things that is always there for you. rockROCK | CC OONTITINUEED FRO OM frFR OnNT pP AGE A celebration of art PHOTOsS BY AmMY SImMPSON THE VOICE Thousands of guests visited the W Winter SSprings Festival of the A Arts on OOct. 15-16 for art, music by the Joe Y Y oung Quartet, right, and face painting.

One day, though, that changed. Two years ago, despite being barely 36 hours out of surgery, with a pink scarf wrapped around her head and wheelchair to support her, the always-tough Procell headed to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. That sunny day, while surrounded by other since she lost her long black hair, and her I felt the strength of the women around me, Procell said.A chance diagnosis come out of a family crisis. from his job, Procell went the route she al ways did in the face of trouble: She faced it head-on. In a week she would be without health insurance, so she headed to all the annual appointments she would have gone to in a few months, including one for her the nurse practitioner found a marble-sized lump in her breast. It was cancer. It was an indescribable feeling, she said, cer. Conquering with knowledgeBut Procell, an Oviedo resident, tackled the diagnosis with determination, hope and, most importantly, education. A notepad full of questions greeted each doctor she spoke to, a bookshelf full of educational material still stands in her living room and she attended every conference, seminar and meeting she could get to. She battled and won against health in surance companies when they refused to break down, and her life had to go on, espe cially for her two teenage daughters. counting on me, she said. Her approach to the disease was no sur prise to those close to her. four surgeries and chemotherapy in eight months. And throughout her treatment and recovery, Procell has used her story and hard to see why. The chance of a woman having breast cancer in her lifetime is about 12 percent, and there will be about 230,480 new cases in the U.S. this year, making it the most common cancer for women in the U.S. Those are staggering numbers, Procell said. Healing through sharing self, by sharing her story with other survi vors, family, friends and curious strangers wherever and whenever she can. She repre sents strength and survival for the Central the Cure foundation at local events where she speaks. She captivates people, said Stefanie Steele, mission manager at Susan G. Ko I bring Judy with me it becomes real to every single person there. I think people connect most when you share your story, Hannah Procell said. And when Procell tells her story, you see true mental and emotional toughness there are no tears when she speaks about her experience. Her knowledge seems end less, and her passion for education is clear. I always knew I was a strong woman, I said. Though her times of triumph outnumber them, there were moments when she felt scared and overwhelmed. One was when her husband got a job in Alaska and had to leave a week after her last surgery. I was frightened, Procell said. I was still in stitches and bandages driving him to the airport. But her community, temple congrega tion and family were there to support her. turning point in life. She learned what not ate her mom. walk away from that, Hannah said. Continuing to helpNow the mother and daughter have teamed up, going beyond the races and conferenc es. Hannah and Procell have designed pink Roar for the Cure shirts that Hannah is selling at Oviedo High School, where Procell graduated from and her two daughters Hannah and Sarah currently attend. At the hope the crowd will pink out the game by wearing their roar shirts.

Red, round radishes are some of the simplest crops to grow in the garden. They are frequently planted as classroom projects because the seeds are manageable, they sprout in only a few days, and reach consumable size in just four weeks. But how many school kids are actually eager to eat their proudly proffered harvest tell you what, when the humble radish packs it in when growing conditions become too hot during the summer months, their valuepacked essence is sorely missed around my homestead! Radishes have been cultivated for thousands of years. Their wild stock, related to mustard greens and turnips, are found in Asia and Europe. Their name is derived from the ancient Greek etymon meaning rapid. In my garden, they frequently reappear as crosspollinated volunteers when the older plants go to seed. Beyond the simple round red radish, there are numerous types, many grown for more than their edible roots. In the round depart ment, the spectrum from dark red to pearly white, and every shade in between, are propagated. Packets of mixed seeds are avail able, offering a surprise at harvest time. Ballooning up from the inch diameter size, the Black Spanish radish, with its gnarly skin, has reached a six-inch diameter size in my garden. Another round variety to consider is the Water melon radish, which is one of the sweetest types, green on the outside and pink inside. Breakfast radish reaches maturity in just three weeks. Pulled much later, they become pithy factor can be taken advantage of when considering inter-planting techniques in the intensively managed garden. Oriental Daikon radish grows long and white, and their shoulders may emerge several inches above the soil. Daikons can be left to mature for several weeks longer than the round vari eties. Autumn or spring cultivars are available, as are sweet and hot choices. When radishes are grown in their element, their tops can be used as an alternative to turnip raw and soaked in a dressing renders them quite palatable. Of course, a steamed or boiled mess of greens is the most familiar use. I usually add some sauted scal lions and perilla (shiso) to crank garden recipe. Radishes are easily pickled to preserve the garden bounty. Pick ling garden crops is a whole arena at a later date.

Despite the coachs objection, Plante put his foot down, pointing out that hed already had four broken noses, a broken jaw, two broken cheekbones and almost 200 stitches in his head. The Lions will host a surprising Edgewater team that beat top-ranked Dr. Phillips, kicking off at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, at home. But the Lions (4-2) are coming off a 28-14 Oct. 13 loss to East River that killed the momentum they had built after beating Lake Howell and Hagerty in consecutive weeks. Now they may be facing their toughest chal lenge of the year against an Edgewater (4-1) team that is on a four-game winning streak heading into Friday night. The Eagles started the season with a loss be fore going on that long streak, including a 38-19 ers. In that game, the Eagles combined for 142 yards in the air and 177 yards on the ground. Most of them came courtesy of a combo of quarterback J.B. Woodman, who threw for 120 yards, and Alton Howard, who not only ran for 63 yards and caught 108 yards of receptions, but in a wild play tossed a 22-yard pass to John Altman. That could prove a tough scenario for the Lions, who have been sporadic on defense and offense this season, depending on the caliber of their opponents. When theyre outmatched, the Lions have given up an average of four touchdowns and scored an average of only 10 points. Hagerty dominatesThe Huskies (3-3) traveled all the way to Min season, winning 34-0. The Huskies defense dominated in the game, holding the Hawks to 149 total yards, while capitalizing on three fumbles to turn them into scores. Despite some offensive brilliance, Huskies quarterback Jason Driskel had to deal with some pressure, getting sacked once and throw ing an interception in the game. At 7:30 p.m. Friday theyll host an unde feated Lake Brantley (7-0) team thats fresh off a 42-20 smashing of Olympia. The Huskies will have to contend with one of the strongest rush ing teams in Seminole County football history. The Patriots Damon Haecker and Tion Green have rushed for more than 100 yards in almost every game this season. Against Olympia they ran for 252 yards and 192 yards, respectively. Bears beatenWinter Springs (1-5) is on its worst losing streak of the season after falling to Timber Creek 31-7 on Oct. 13. The Bears let the Wolves amass 325 total yards in the blowout. This week the Bears host Oak Ridge (4-2), coming off a win over Lake Howell.

Kassity M. 8 years oldWe asked kids at the Winter Springs Festival of the Arts about their Halloween plans. Government shouldnt promote ralliesnole County School Board inviting everybody to a rally at their headquarters, the Educational Support Center in Sanford, prior to their most recent meeting: The PTA would like all people interested in showing their support for adequate funding from the Legislature to attend the rally from 3-6 pm. They will be wearing red as a show of solidarity. And what will happen if we dont show solidarity? closing more schools, cutting as band and chorus, raising class sizes in non-class-size amendment classrooms, increasing the temperatures in classrooms, eliminating or reducing busing to magnet programs, eliminating summer school, implementing a four-day workweek and a four day school week, implementing furloughs for employees, eliminating health insurance for employees working less than full time, consolidating schools into a K-12 model, implementing a payto-play program for athletics and other extra-curricular programs such as band, and eliminating the high school transition program. Two things stand out about this: First, imagine if a defense department employee used government resources to promote a rally to lobby for increased funding for the military the howls of outrage would reach the skies! Yet, here we have local government employees using government resources to promote a rally for increased funding. Second, note whats missing from their hit list: any trimming of administration or bureaucracy. No, if their funding de mands arent met, it will be the kids who have to pay. Theyve closed Longwood Elementary School to save money; Educational Support Center have been closed, too?Jeffrey Payne Winter Springs Letters to the E Editor Too many people take the responsibility of pet ownership lightly. Slight errors in judgment, such as leaving a front door open a moment too long or neglecting a faulty latch on an outdoor fence, can have disastrous consequences for four-legged friends. On the loose, dogs are at risk of getting hit by a ve hicle putting themselves and the motorist in jeopardy. Even dogs without a history of aggressive behavior can be capable of attacking other dogs or people when let loose. But its not just slight over sights that many pet owners are guilty of. So many people decide to forego a leash when taking their dogs outside or bring dogs with aggressive tendencies to dog parks. Experts say that education is key to keeping our furry friends and us safe. An estimated 4.7 million dog bites occur annually, according to the American Humane Association. The Centers for Disease Control reported that 800,000 Americans seek medical attention for dog bites each year half of whom are children. Of those, 386,000 go to the emergency room and about 16 die. Simple steps can be taken to scale back the instances of dog attacks. About 92 percent of fatal dog attacks involved male dogs, 94 percent of whom were not neutered, accord ing to the National Canine Research Foundation. In fact, the Humane Society of the U.S. reported that unneutered dogs were 2.6 times more likely to bite than neutered dogs. Training and socializing a dog also reduces the risk of aggressive behavior. The American Humane Association says socialization with people and other animals is especially important for puppies between 8 and 16 weeks old. AHA also recommends restraining dogs with fences and leashes, but not tethering them, which can make them feel stressed and vulnerable. More than 80 percent of dog bites treated in the emer gency room involved children younger than 15, reported the CDC. Teaching a child how to properly play with dogs, supervising the child and dog when they are interacting and teaching a child how to approach dogs can dramatically reduce the risk of an attack. The consequences of ir responsible pet ownership can go below the surface. A pet thats been attacked may be come skittish and the victims owner may develop a fear of dogs. A motorist who hits a loose dog who ran in front of the vehicle has to live with that accident for a lifetime, even if it wasnt their fault. Pet ownership is increasingly viewed as a right, not a privilege. But there are severe consequences when people do not educate themselves before becoming a pet parent. What it really boils down to is being a good neighbor. An essential piece of the healthy community puzzle is safe pets.Safe pets, safe community King Features Weekly ServiceOctober 17, 2011 Editorial Cartoon
