INDEX WSHS hosts concert for Black History Month Photo gallery > 3 Lions and Huskies see the end of their postseasons Athletics > 10 St. Lukes celebrates 100 years in Oviedo on March 11 Interests > 6 Winter Springs is bringing back its annual Spring Family Festival this year in a new incarnation af ter a three-year hiatus. The free event, once held in Central Winds Park, will now move to the Winter Springs Town Center and will feature live bands, local vendors, crafts and activities. The city already sponsors three other seasonal events the Celebration of Freedom on July 4, Hometown Harvest in October and Winter Wonderland in December. Its only natural to add a fourth event to add balance and to encourage residents to visit the Town Center, said Brian Dunigan, Winter Springs pro gram and events coordinator. In a tight economy it is dif Winter Springs and Oviedo to keep their events on the budget, let alone add one back to the schedule. Winter Springs has found its solution by turning to local spon sors for event funding, allowing them to expand their offerings while keeping their budget neu tral. There is a lot of planning and careful thought put into these events, Dunigan said. As a city we see the value to our resi dents. Despite some setbacks along the way, such as having to can cel the Fourth of July celebration in 2008, Winter Springs has kept all their city-run events going throughout the recession. The canceling of the Fourth of for the City Commission City Manager Kevin Smith said. I wasnt in on the decision at the time, he said. But I know it was really disappointing that they werent able to make it hap pen. It was extremely important to bring it back because people said. Weve tried since then to make all of the events self-sus taining. In order to do this, the city seeks out sponsors willing to fund the four events as a pack age, rather than individually. They also work with event ven dors to get the best prices for things such as lighting, stages and sound equipment. Like anyone else on a bud get, we are looking for the best prices, Smith said. The Fourth of July event gets a budgetary boost by being the last It helps if we can be up a little going into July 4. This way the excess funds [in the event budget] can go into this event, Dunigan said. Other events that take place in Winter Springs, like the pop ular Central Florida Scottish Highland Games in January and the Winter Springs Festival of the Arts in October, are funded through outside organizers. They rent the facilities and pay the city for its police support for the du ration of the events. In this way the city incurs no cost to host these weekend festivals. Oviedo faces similar challenges Like Winter Springs, Oviedo has also faced and overcome chal lenges to their community events calendar. A few years ago, Oviedo had to give up its Oktoberfest event because it wasnt compet ing as well against other similar events. We replaced it with our Hal loween Carnival of Screams, fea turing a haunted house, and its doing much better, Oviedo Rec reation Superintendent David Burgoon said. Oviedo is also working toward where each event would pay for itself. All the events are in the bud get, but we do rely on sponsors and donations, Burgoon said. We dont get it all back but we got close this past Halloween; we got back 85 percent of our costs. Other events rely heavily on donated services and equip ment. If you look to the skies over Oviedo in April you might see an unusual sight marshmallows by the thousands falling from a helicopter gently circling above. For the third year running, Oviedo has swapped the tradi tional Easter egg hunt for some thing a little different The Marshmallow Drop is April 7 this year. Kids collect the softly falling, sugary blobs and trade them in for the real goods can dy baskets. This event would not happen without the help of a donated he Were still working on one for this year, if anybody wants to help out, Burgoon said. Sometimes getting creative is what it takes to make these city traditions happen. By asking sponsors to donate their resourc es, communities such as Oviedo and Winter Springs are able to keep the good times rolling even if times are a little tight. Its hard to put a cost to these events they make the community what it is, Burgoon said. They bring the community together; its part of our culture and history.

The decision came during a School Board meeting Feb. 28, when the board voted to cease paying its bills to cities in the county. A week before, School Board Chairwoman Tina Calderone and Superintendent Bill Vogel placed a series of phone calls to mayors and city managers to notify them of the pending deci sion. Despite a weeks notice, the decision was a surprise, said Ste ven Henken, a city councilman in Oviedo, one of the affected cities. All we got is Were not going to pay the stormwater fee anymore, Henken said. The announcement came less than a week after the board an nounced it would not be closing two schools in the coming year, to the jubilation of local parents. But the board did not announce how it planned to cover all the budget gaps it needed to close.

Page 2 March 9 March 29, 2012 Seminole Voice THIS WEEK for about $70,000 per year in stormwater fees from Oviedo, which would not be paid. Dep uty Superintendent George Kos mac said that number is closer to $32,000, and that the board could save $284,000 total annually be tween all the stormwater bills the board would stop paying. Considering how rapidly the decision was made, Schenck said he was perplexed about how the board members reacted when in formed of the citys displeasure with the sudden decision. All the sudden theyre like Oh, you have a problem with that? Schenck said. Partnership problems Mayor Dominic Persampiere said that he was bothered that after the city had cut the school board a break on paying certain other fees, the bill for the stormwater. I dont appreciate the fact that we help them so much and they turn around and do this, Per sampiere said. When they need [Middle School] and were $40,000 short, we wrote a check. But Kosmac contended that the school board helps cities through allowing them to use school facili ties, and use school electricity and water, for their activities. "What we try to do on our joint facilities is we try to work togeth er on those, and offset their invest ment by not charging the city elec tricity for events they have there," Kosmac said. "You can imagine the air conditioners how expen sive they are to run." Sharing costs brings up anoth er issue between the cities and the school board. Persampiere said that the school board refusing to pay its stormwater bill could have an impact on others.. "When you have a system that supports the well being of the community that they are a part of and contribute to, then they have to pay their fair share or else others end up paying more," Per sampiere said. "Wed end up sub sidizing what they have to pay." Kosmac contend that the school board already manages most of its own stormwater, with nearly all of the county's schools having reten tion ponds for rainwater runoff. "Weve got ponds on all but two of our campuses," Kosmac said. "All 58 or 59 other campuses really have stormwater ponds al in not having to pay those." Mayor questions motives Winter Springs Mayor Charles Lacey said he disagrees. "We've got six schools and the bus depot on our property, and Lacey said. "When that water goes into the city's system, the city has Lake Jesup." Vogel met with the Oviedo City Council on March 5 to discuss how they would move forward. Lacey said he also plans to meet with the board in a few weeks. If the situation goes to the courts, the board may have prece dent to fall back on. A Jan. 18 Flor ida District Court ruling against the city of Key West allowed Florida Keys Community Col lege to stop paying its stormwater bills legally. The majority of the state's 67 school boards do not pay stormwater fees. With the recent court ruling, Vogel said he did not think the Seminole County School Board should have to either. "When we got that ruling and saw what our budget situation was, we had school closings on the agenda, we had to look at this as a way of reducing our budget," Vogel said. Lacey said that Key West's de cision should have no bearing on how Seminole County's stormwa ter management is handled. "We believe it's not comparable to our situation here," Lacey said. ferent than what led to the deci sion in Key West." Rebuilding a bridge At the March 5 City Council meet ing in Oviedo, Calderone and Vo gel spoke with the council to try to build understanding about the situation that led to the School Boards decision. Calderone said that she wished the board would have been able to give the city more notice. It would be great to be able certain things, but just as recently as two years ago, the state Legis lature in the middle of the school year with zero notice cut our bud get by $15 million, just because they can, Calderone said. With strangled funding caus ing the board to cut back, Calde rone said the board made the de cision not to seek back pay from the cities because they understood that budgets are all tight. We chose to take the high road and not come after the city saying we want all the money back that weve been paying for these fees, she said. Lacey said that regardless of the board's situation, Winter Springs would continue to bill the board. Thats something Calderone said has precedent in Pinellas County already, but that the school board there is not obligated to pay it. "We still intend to levy those fees," Lacey said. "We'll continue to send a bill every month wheth er the school intends to pay them or not."

Page 3 March 9 March 29, 2012 Seminole Voice I am not jealous or in a competition with any of my gardening compatriots. In an occupation as rewarding as food garden ing, the more the merrier. When a neo phyte has glaring success entertaining a crop with which I struggle, my practiced tact kicks in to not blurt out axioms related to beginners luck. This lack of accu mulated pests and diseases in a recently developed plot encourages the newbie to continue his endeavors, honing his skills for when troubles arrive. And after a short apprenticeship, the now-experienced gar dener can teach me a trick or two. Starting with Mel Bartholomews book Square Foot Garden ing and then graduating to John Jeavons tome How to Grow More Vegetables is the beacon of a maturing dedication. In the early stages, simply germi nating seeds is enough to feed the soul when looking for any success. My original goal was to merely consume something from the garden on a daily basis. After a couple of growing seasons, expectations to assuage the rumbly tummy emanate from the household as attention is drawn away from other honey-do projects. Time to submit results more substantial than com plimenting a bagged-salad mix with a few Productivity from the garden as a measure of quantity will ultimately be derived from available growing space cultivated over time. A familys farm of a single growing bed 4 feet on a side produces enough green beans for a couple of meals, to the exclusion of most other crops. And then the whole garden needs to be started over from scratch. Time to dig up the grass, dedicate a germination space, rededicate the irrigation system and free up hours in a hectic schedule. Linking the foursquare plots into a lengthy grow ing bed is what were talking about. When enough plants are germinating, surviving, produce purchases at the grocery will become a memory of the past. Finally, a managed risk resulting in a return on our own investment! Properly choosing crops, knowing that we have the luxury of spatial quantity, produces a quality all its own. Selecting to grow stalwart green scallion onions that produce year-round rations requires minimal space and they are universally consumed. Allow room for promised producers such as collard greens, kohlrabi, turnips and radishes to tender repetitive provisions. Harvest, repatriate the soil and customarily grow what will be eaten.

Still the pale green, tender leaves and vibrant azaleas will not be denied. In fact, just Community nds bargains I hope you enjoyed all the bar gains last weekend in and around Geneva. Private homes, churches and the Geneva Historical and Genealogical Society sponsored community garage and yard sales can't say enough about the help fulness of the Scout troops with parking and unloading, and we were happy to help support the fundraising efforts for the Eagle Scout project we loved those nut rolls and snickerdoodles! It was so nice to see families man ning their booths, kids running about with painted faces and all the bustling activity on the front porch of the Community Center. We hope everyone had a great day and even returned home with some unexpected treasures. Resilience from South to Midwest Our prayers and thoughts go out to the communities from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes that were devastated by the line of tornadoes last week. Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels de scribed the 'resilient spirit' of the residents of his state who began rebuilding even before FEMA arrived. We can barely under stand the images of Henryville, Ind. where the small commu embedded in a cafe, vehicles and homes shredded and mangled, and houses lying in ruin. Pray for these communities and send whatever support you can as they bury their dead, heal their ultimately rebuild their lives. Community cares for its own Geneva's organizations and churches care for those in need in the community, whether they are mortar organizations or not. It is what true ministry is all about. Our churches provide spiritual strength and education through services and Sunday school, all types of daycare and activities for teens and seniors. They provide sustenance for the body and spirit. For example we love the Wednesday night suppers at the First United Methodist church of Geneva. These are fun gettogethers centered on homemade food that is only $5. You can sit and eat with folks or take it with you between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. Sometimes there's even a little music. Did you also know they hold a covered dish lunch the Make sure you pay a visit to the Thrift House & Boutique furnishings, jewelry, toys and so much more.

All around are remnants of the past stones and pillars marking the passing of time and family. The bustling community of be lievers that make up St. Lukes Lutheran Church in Oviedo grew from that humble 25-seat chapel tucked under the oaks. On Sunday, March 11, they will celebrate their 100-year anniversary with a day of festivities. Founded on hard work and the faithful vision of its members, said Joshua Jones, the churchs commu nications director. St. Lukes has grown to nearly a thousand mem bers, and includes numerous out reach missions throughout the com munity. Back in 1911, a group of Lu theran farmers from Ohio resolved to bring their families to Florida to create a better environment in which to raise their children. By the end of the year, they had purchased 1200 acres near the vil lage of Oviedo and made plans to relocate. Shortly after their arrival, a group of men from the settlement met on March 17, 1912, and orga nized the church that would be come St. Lukes. They chose a site and together erected the simple clapboard build ing that still stands today.

Despite having no full-time bers and visiting pastors kept the nity grew around them. Twice over the years, the con gregation outgrew its home and so they built larger, more-modern facilities, but the members never forgot their heritage. As the new buildings came into use, they found new purposes for the old, keeping them open as a functioning part of the churchs history. The old brick sanctu ary was even incorporated into the new sanctuary, built in 1993, keeping the original stained glass windows in place. This sense of continuation is important in a church so deeply rooted in the community, church A living history Emma Chapman is living proof of that heritage. Her great-great-great grand father, Andrew Duda, was one of the founding members of the church.

It sounds like a lot for just a few dedicated families to have be gun, but there is much more to the work this faith community has ac complished in the past 100 years. In addition to the school, in 1948 St. Lukes added its Lutheran Haven, a home for orphans and the elderly, which still functions today as a retirement/assisted liv ing community.

This type of close-connect edness between the generations seems integral to the well being of the church and the work that it does. Working with local organiza tions such as HOPE Helps, The Christian Sharing Center, Share the Care and other outreach pro one of its core values, to make Christ known throughout our community and the world. One way the church does this is through the Shepherds Hope Health Care facility, established on the campus in December 2002. Shepherds Hope is a Central Flor care services to the uninsured. Including the St. Lukes loca tion there are now nine centers throughout Central Florida. This is a wonderful partner munity, said Shari Vander Wiede, vice president of communications and development with Shepherds Hope. Its one we look forward to continuing for a long time. That shouldnt be a problem for St. Lukes, whose long history has proven that the church is here to stay.

For Gaynor, a spot on the start ing lineup translated into six points including a perfect per formance from the free throw line one rebound, one block and one turnover. Early in the game the Knights may have been more perfect on of fense than they had been all year, drilling shot after shot in a rain of 3-pointers that never touched the rim. Even under pressure, the Knights never buckled, with Rompza falling to the ground as he hit a seemingly impossible tri ple from the sideline, and Marcus Jordan getting a blind feed and turning it into an effortless three of his own. have been the best shooting the Knights have seen all season, with 57.7 percent accuracy overall and 58.8 percent from 3-point land. Keith Clanton led the way, hitting seven of nine shots overall for 22 points, adding six rebounds. Mar cus Jordan and Isaiah Sykes were both on their A-game, shooting 16 and 15 points respectively.

Now hell hope to move the Knights deep into the postseason, possibly starting with the team the Knights just defeated.

Sending the right signals Put a spring in your step this month with W alk MS: Orlando With the coming of spring, we all look forward to enjoying the outdoors the mild, but sunny weather, the aroma of us. Spring is also an opportune time to winter and holiday feasting. What better way to get in shape and enjoy the new season than to participate in the plethora of outdoor charity walks available every spring to help those in our community who are in need? One such walk is in our backyard Florida Chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society, is 8 a.m. on Saturday, March 10, at Lake Eola at Thornton Park. Walk MS is one of the National MS Societys signature fundraising events, drawing hundreds of thousands of participants each year to nearly 600 sites throughout the United States. The family-friendly event includes 1and 2.34-mile routes and is open to anyone families, teams or individuals. Participants in Walk MS: Orlando help raise funds for close to 73,000 people lo cally who are affected by this chronic dis ease, offering support services including educational programs, self-help groups, research, medical equipment and more. MS attacks the central nervous system, which is made up of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. Walk MS is our rallying point to help raise critical funds that support cuttingedge research and services to help people with MS move their lives forward. The MS Societys call-to-action, Join the Movement, is a reminder of the fact that MS robs people of the ability to move, disabling some and that action is needed to raise funds for research while improv ing the quality of life and independence of those living with MS. Join the movement toward a world free of MS by making donations or participat ing in one of the Walk MS events or Bike MS: The Citrus Tour 2012. There is no cost to register for Walk MS, although a minimum $20 donation is requested. Those who raise at least $125 receive a T-shirt. For details, visit Mid FloridaMSWalks.org or call 407-478-8882, extension 28. Gaby Casado Development manager National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Mid Florida Chapter Letters to the editor When gearing up to participate in a walk, keep in mind these healthful tips from physical therapist, Patty Bobryk, at MS Comprehensive Care Center of Central Florida. Look for opportunities to be more active throughout your day. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park at the far end of the parking lot. Walk the dog. Small changes will add up. Drink plenty of water. Hydrate before, during and after your workout. A dehydrated body is unable to cool itself, which can cause heat exhaustion or heat stroke. It can also cause muscle fatigue. To get the most of your walk, stay well hydrated. Stretch before and after your walk. Stretching before you exercise warms up your body and helps prevent injuries. Slow walking or stretching after you walk allows your heart rate and blood pressure to return to pre-exercise levels. YEAH!!! GO TIM!! MEGA N CLONIN GE R SL A D E K LOV E Y OU, TIMO THY MOR A N!
