Oviedos latest addition is al ready halfway to selling out and Tom Temmel, a representative of the builder, Meritage Homes. Weve been selling even faster than we anticipated, he said. This echoes the nationwide trend of increasing new homes sales. According to the U.S. Census Bu reau, new homes sales throughout the United States rose 7.5 percent from 2011. The South was listed as the fastest growing regional market with a 16 percent increase. Oviedo and Winter Springs have seen upsurges of their own over the past year, with a combined total of nine new developments currently in progress, according to the cities. between Chapman and Mitchell Hammock roads, Arborview Park Cecilia Heights garbage can is about onethird full when its picked up once a week, carries a tiny fork and spoon wrapped in a a place she goes has only plastic. Her to-go food from restaurants is taken never in Styrofoam, only in her reusable containers from home. For Height, a hospice nurse and mem ber of the Sierra Club Florida Waste Mini mization Team, recycling is a way of life. Its an easy lifestyle, the Seminole County resident said. We can make a difference. And while Height certainly isnt alone, shes not part of a large group. She recycles about 70 percent of her waste friends call her the recycling queen. And for Floridas goal to reach a 75 per cent recycling rate by 2020, shes a model citizen, but most Central Florida cities have a long way to go before their rates reach that. Were waves away from that 75 percent, Tim Maslow, sustainability coordinator for the city of Winter Park, said. Winter Park recycles about 10 percent of looking to improve that rate, and are using Oviedo as a model. Oviedo residents are the best recyclers in Seminole County, Johnny Edwards, solid waste manager for Seminole County, said. They recycle about 35 percent of their waste, and 500 pounds per home, per year. Residents have access to unlimited bins for recycling at no extra charge, and can earn up to $100 in rebates each year using Recy clebank, a program that gives discounts in exchange for points you earn recycling. The program is free for residents, and included in the citys waste contract. Oviedo is the only city that has it. Since implementing unlimited bins, the city has seen 150 more pounds of waste per home, per year be recycled. Recyclebank has kept The average wage in Seminole County may have fallen nearly two percent since April 2010, but the Oviedo City Council is hoping to reverse that trend and bring new busi them here, Councilman Steve Henken said. At an April 16 meeting the Council passed a change that would quadruple the amount of businesses theyd throw economic incentives at if they relocate to the city. They also proposed a slew of new incentive programs wage in the county was $38,434, according to economic growth organization Enterprise Florida. In the nearly two years that the city average wages fell to $37,966, forcing the high-paying businesses. In order to hook businesses that pay liv give money to businesses that paid a mini mum of 80 percent of the countys average salary, with tiered incentives for hiring at 115 percent, 150 percent and 200 percent of the average pay. And money is already waiting, Assistant City Manager Bryan Cobb said. Since 2007 the city has annually allocat ed monies into an account to set aside in case we had a business come in that we could use The incentives could add up to between ing on salary. Coupled with other incentive programs, Mayor Dominic Persampiere said he hoped to make the city more competitive against other cities. Without it were at an economic disadvantage, he said. But the Council talked about going even further. Cross-country business trips dont normally pervade Oviedo City Council dis cussions, but discussion on the dais seemed more like the board of a corporation looking to diversify. If businesses are thinking about mov ing from California, New York, Louisiana, then lets go there, Henken said. Lets go tell the story. Thats how you get business.

LeParc, originally approved in 2005, will build out in phases, with commercial space, she said. the corner from LeParc, had been on hold since 2008. But builder representative Temmel said at the rate it is going, the once-dormant As a builder, were seeing signs people are feeling more who have been on the fence for two years or more are actually get ting off that fence and buying. The website of another new development in Oviedo, The Preserve at Lake Charm, says it family homes in total. The city of Oviedo lists two townhome complex, and a 10-unit duplex complex. When complete, all these communities together will add more than 370 new homes to the area. Winter Springs City Planner Bobby Howell said his city will ments this year that will bring more than 700 new homes to the area. For a while things had slowed down, but weve really noticed a pick up lately, Howell said. Partly this is because weve ap proved a rewrite of the city code around the Town Center to try and encourage business. The Winter Springs website works bringing apartments, townhomes and single-family homes to the area. Connected to the Town Center by a winding nature trail, Winter Springs Village will add more than 200 homes to the growing heart of the city, mixing two-story bungalow homes and larger tradi tional homes. The bungalows sit directly on the street with hidden alleyways around back in lieu of traditional driveways in a style similar to Baldwin Park or Celebration. Town Center will add apartment options to the area. Jesups Landing, a 171-unit townhome complex approved in 2005, stalled when its original bankruptcy in 2007 in the heart of the housing collapse. Situated track, Howell said. The new developer, Mattamy Homes out of Canada, is in the process of redesigning the layout of the streets and will begin con struction soon, he said. In a similar turn of events, he also lost their original builder ber. There are now 60 townhomes in the works next to the Tuskawil la Country Club. on the edge of Winter Springs, backing up to the Oviedo Mall, will add 36 single-family homes. Even with all the new develop ment, Winter Springs is working to maintain the charm and quality of life residents have come to ex pect, Howell said. As the U.S. economy continues its slow march to recovery, so does Seminole County. New home sales Realtor Jarret Phillips said Oviedo and Winter Springs have a leg up on the com petition. Its a stable, well-established area and not nearly as susceptible home sales doing really well there this year.

Theyve included more recycling bins on Park Avenue, which was done in December. hope to put recycling bins in the parks and are debating larger re cycling bins for residents or a payas-you-go method for garbage pickup the more trash you cre ate, the more you pay depend ing on it being cost effective for the city and its residents. The struggle with apartments Theyre also in talks with a local apartment complex to add re cycling there in the next month. Most multi-family dwellings are left out of the convenient commu nity curbside programs, and this would be the start of a new pilot program for Winter Park. Even the larger complexes, for example the Village at Lake Lily, which only has cardboard recycling, and Lofts of Winter Park Village, dont offer their own recycling facilities for everyday materials onsite. Property managers said its be cause of lack of space, and dont see a future with recycling added. Many complexes dont offer it be cause it costs extra money. In this economy, you want to cut costs and recycling costs money, said Debbie Sponsler, section manager for the Orange Countys Utilities Solid Waste Division. But one local apartment complex does offer recycling: Park East and Park Knowles. Property Manager Kerra Smith said that while it does cost them $120 a month for the service, the importance of recycling makes it worth it, especially because her residents want it. of having the recycling outweigh the cost, she said. Having that option to recycle attracts more tenants, Maslow said. Theres also a cost in educating tenants on how to use the recycling bins. One of the biggest problems in apartment complex recycling is contamination peo ple putting the wrong things, or even their garbage, in the wrong bins, Sponsler said. Economics play a role in recy cling developments, too. The poor economy has cut waste in Orange and Seminole counties by at least 20 percent people buying less, keeping more and eating out less means less trash. But it also means less money to spend on recycling and the facilities necessary. 30 years in environment and solid waste management consulting, said that the future will be in recy cling, but he doesnt think Florida can reach the 75 percent recycling goal by 2020, and even if it did on a state level, poor rural communities would never individually reach it. Unfortunately it takes invest ment, he said. Height thinks its worth the investment and time. As she sips her Whole Foods smoothie from she points out each person bringing in their own bags to use for shopping. She sees a friend in each one, and a future without so much waste. You save money, save the environment, happy animals, happy people, its all good. For more information and a map of ongoing developments in Oviedo, visit tinyurl.com/OviedoHousing.

Page 4 April 27 May 10, 2012 Seminole Voice I spoke with Joel Salatin last week. Joel is working on the leading edge of sustainable farming practices at his Polyface Farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Vir ginia. He makes an appearance in the movie Food, Inc. and numerous other contemporary agricultural media productions. Hes written several books, with his most recent titled Folks, This Aint Normal. The Homegrown Co-op online farmers market and Slow Foods sponsored Joels speaking visit to Rollins College on April 18. Tom Carey: How big is your vegetable garden? Joel Salatin: Its hard to say, but a quarter acre would be about correct and add a quarter acre in hoop houses. As the animals from the hoop houses come out in the spring, we then go in with veg etables starting with sweet corn. We do a lot of micro-site gardening. Shitake logs under the eaves of the barn get the roof dripping on them. Where the cows are kept at the hay shed in the wintertime, the deep bedding gets churned up muddy and heavily fertilized, almost compost. We grow our potatoes there, its already tilled toes on the ground under some straw. Another barn we have has a southern exposure and thats where we grow our cucumbers. They grow up the side of the barn with moisture dripping from the awnings. Its a real nice fertile micro-site, full of red wrigglers, with compost from the barn animals. You can get a lot of space real quick using micro-sites. Tom: At my gardens, I get a lot of requests from folks wanting to help to get some dirt under their Farms Facebook posts and blogs by your interns and apprentices. Do you look at your educational help as a source of affordable labor, or do you put emphasis on teaching the next generation of farmers to help them dip their toe in the water? Joel: We do look at it as an education, and while we certainly do work them plenty hard, we also do some formal evening lectures; we visit other farms and agricultural enterprises. Lest anybody think this is cheap labor when youve rewelded the trailer hitch for the 10th time because somebody took off without lift comes with a cost. Tom: Ive read your new book, Folks, This Aint Nor mal, and numerous Acres USA columns and articles. Following the themes you write about, do you see that decentralized food cient due to appropriate technol ogy and information sources? Joel: We are seeing a lo cal food tsunami that is being enabled by technology. A big hurdle has been economy of scale farm and fork. You cant expect everybody to drive around to 10 farms to get their food. Now, there are companies that are elec media technology was developed for globalization but is being coopted to enable localization. Well see a move away from bricks and mortar to embracing the electronic commerce interface. Were to interface the customer and producer. Were making an end run around big warehousing. Retail faades are too expensive, from display coolers and cash registers, to stocking shelves with retail processed products. We did a comparison of our prices and were now cheaper than most competitors in our area, even the organic supermarkets. By lever electronic interface were seeing the beginning of the future.

Feder is one of the 3,826 Junior Achievement volunteers in Central Florida giving back to a com munity one class at a time. are in business you need to give back, she said. It doesnt matter where you give back, but a business is a part of a community and you have to give back to that community, thats the community thats buying your product or buying your services, and for me children are the future. Junior Achievement is giving back to 15-year-old Crooms Acad emy students Mahdi Musleem and Amanda Casey by helping them prepare for real-life situa tions outside of the classroom. We learned what to do in realright, but how to talk to people, Musleem said. I would recom mend taking a JA course if youre having trouble with social skills. Casey also said JA helped her learn the skills needed for the ca reer world. If you want experience on how to handle situations in the Casey said. Crooms Intro to Information Technology teacher Debora Pollock said she is grateful to have Junior Achievement volunteers come into her classroom. My take is, a teacher becomes like a parent, they see us day in and day out, so when other peo the course. She said Junior Achievement comes into her classroom once and week to help students get ready to enter the career world. I think its a very useful program, Pollock said. We so much appreciate it. It gives me a sneak-peek of whats going to be happing in the real world, 15-year-old Crooms student Zack Fedewa said. Winter Springs resident Steve Overstreet helped kids get a sneak-peek into the real world JA courses at Lake Howell High School. The responses Ive gotten from the courses have been very positive, Overstreet said. The [answer] I like most is that every body intended on graduating high school and go onto college. Stephanie Beasley and her 17-year-old daughter Emily have both been impacted by the Junior Achievement program, and are grateful for the things it has taught Emily. nancial literacy and how to take a mortgage out on your home, all the things that you dont ever think about when youre in high school or middle school, that will impact you later in life, Emily said. They make sure you know whats coming, so you never get blindsided by something that cial determent. Emily is now continuing to give back through JA by volunteering her own time to the program. Its been really nice and re freshing to see her see the impor tance of good work ethic, her mom, Stephanie, said. Its helped shape her ideal of how she can Emily has also since been awarded Junior Achievement Shining Star for their Ms. Flori da Hall of Fame, and her mom couldnt be happier.

Page 6 April 27 May 10, 2012 Seminole Voice FamilyCalendar I want to begin by saying that the food at Shogun Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar in Oviedo tastes so good that I never once thought about reaching for the soy sauce and how many times can you say that after dining at a Japanese restaurant? Yes, the entertainment is there several chefs who can pull off the whiz-bangchop-socki of cutting, dicing and tossing your gling razor sharp knives, but this is a teppan/hibachi restaurant destination because the food is so good. How good? That good, and inventive. I happily followed the advice of my server and started with the seafood soup. Made with tasty worthy meal in itself. I liked it so much that I placed an additional order for a container to take everything on the menu in a Japanese restaurant is also good for you. Opened in 2006, the Lin family came to America with the dream of creating a Japanese steakhouse that would serve the highestquality sushi and seafood. Run by owner/manager Tommy Lin, his desire to create and please shines all over the menu. Shogun offers a wide and inventive variety of sushi, sashimi and house special rolls, with fun names like Beauty & Sea Roll, UCF Roll, Crazy Tuna Roll, and spicy yellow tail inside and a whole lobster splayed across the I went with the Black Dragon Roll, which is deliciously made of fried lobster and cucumber with eel and avocado on top. Its a melt-in-your-mouth treat, and it can only be found at this restau rant. When it came time for the hibachi chefs to do their show, they sliced and diced a very tender, Shogun achieves a whole When I asked if it was marinated for a month, the answer came quality meat available cooked properly. And the shrimp was as good. Even without the offered sauce, the shrimp had so much taste! More good news: It should be noted here that Shogun now has a Tappanyaki Dinner for Two special with a choice of chicken and steak, or chicken and shrimp, for $29.95. Dinners include vegetables and rice. Lobster and scallops are also available. And the inventiveness of the menu carries over into what my server called a dessert sushi. The Fruit Sensation Sushi made of kiwi and mango, and covered in a thin blanket of strawberries was sweet and refreshing without When I asked Tommy Lin about the breadth and inventive ness of the menu, he said, If you like doing your work, you do it with your heart. Well said and a perfect answer to how this gem of a Japanese restaurant maintains its delicious charm. If youve read this far, tell your server that Josh sent me, and sake shot with each entre.

I knew that using a wheelchair or losing your hear ing might pose practical challenges, but I didnt grasp how they could undermine someones sense of self-worth. Then I began working with a CIL client whose disability had triggered depression so severe that getting out of bed not to mention leaving the house was a tremendous struggle. This person felt completely isolated, and the lack of understanding from others made things even worse. Fortunately, this person sought out help to overcome depression. Over several sessions we were able to help this client reframe their perspec tive and see lifes possibilities rather than their limitations. Slowly, the client built life and their whole posture shifted toward one of renewed hope. As someone beginning a mental health counseling ca reer, witnessing this clients progress was validating. There are as many variations on this story as there are individual clients and disabilities arent always obvious to the is, a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the deaf, but also those who lose their hear client, a childhood sports accident led to a lifelong health problem that ultimately stole his ability to walk. Each has to learn a way of living thats markedly different almost as many different responses to living with a disability. Some clients develop coping tools on their own, while others need more support. I cant eliminate a clients disability, but I can help them change how they think about it through cognitive behavioral therapy and reality therapy. They might feel powerless to go grocery shopping, when theyre capable of doing it with only a bit of assistance. We go through a pro generating more positive thoughts and practicing these new modes of thinking. As the saying goes, thoughts lead to ac tion. When clients feel in control of their own lives, they quickly begin living in more meaningful and productive ways. It starts small, but eventually they feel em powered to reach their goals whether home or becoming more involved in the community. For some of our clients, coming to CIL understand the nature of disabilities, who recognize their personal attributes and achievements, and who treat them with dignity and dont overload them with unneeded sympathy. Its deeply reward ing to be part of helping clients toward hope. Living with a disability doesnt have to be debilitating. On the contrary, it can personal growth.Alicia Duquette, an Oviedo resident who volunteers as a mental health counselor at the Center for Independent Living, is earning her masters degree in counseling at Nova Southeastern University. Volunteers help achieve CILs mission of helping people with disabilities to achieve independence. CIL is seeking volunteers for key roles.

The U.S. House budget approved last month proposes to cut SNAP by nearly 20 percent, gutting support for millions of this? The program has grown too much in recent years too many people are shocking that SNAP participation grew by 70 percent from 2006 to 2011 if you fail to mention that the ranks of the unemployed grew by 94 percent over the same period. The Agriculture Committees are rewrit ing Farm Bill legislation beginning this month, and SNAP and other anti-hunger programs are at risk of cuts at a time when they need to be strengthened and protected. Taking care of our neighbors is an American value, and feeding our neighbors is a shared responsibility. We ous support of our volunteers and donors. budget through important anti-hunger programs. We strongly urge our nations leaders to protect anti-hunger programs and make needed investments to protect families from hunger and help charities like ours keep up with need in our community. We also ask them and you to look at SNAP with fresh eyes and an open heart. If you have any doubt that families are strug gling, please visit us at Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and meet the people whose lives are affected by the choices made in the Farm Bill. Dave Krepcho President/CEO, Second Harvest Food Bank inbox lately, Dear Sandi, I received an e-mail from a company saying they reviewed my resume and would like to they want me to obtain a copy of my credit report and send it to them. What should I do? Run! Far, far away. Never, ever, ever give anyone your credit information without a conditional offer of employment. Legitimate companies will interview you and go through all of the processes they need to do for hiring and then ask permission to pull a credit report. If they deny you employment based on your credit, you are entitled and they must tell you the reason for the denial. After researching online, I found that the companies asking for this were not hiring, but actually charging people for credit protection and other things they had not asked for. If you do not know who you are giving information to, dont give it! Daily, I receive virus emails, scams and other malicious attempts to obtain my personal information. Be very wary of seekers. Look up the Fair Credit Reporting Act for more details. Employers can ask and they can pull a report, but they have to tell you. No legitimate employer will ask you to do this yourself.

This echoes the nationwide trend of increasing new homes sales. According to the U.S. Census Bu reau, new homes sales throughout the United States rose 7.5 percent from 2011. The South was listed as the fastest growing regional market with a 16 percent increase.

Her to-go food from restaurants is taken never in Sty rofoam, only in her reusable containers from home. For Height, a hospice nurse and mem ber of the Sierra Club Florida Waste Mini mization Team, recycling is a way of life. Its an easy lifestyle, the Seminole County resident said. We can make a difference. And while Height certainly isnt alone, shes not part of a large group. She recycles about 70 percent of her waste friends call her the recycling queen. And for Floridas goal to reach a 75 per cent recycling rate by 2020, shes a model citizen, but most Central Florida cities have a long way to go before their rates reach that. Were waves away from that 75 percent, Tim Maslow, sustainability coordinator for the city of Winter Park, said. Winter Park recycles about 10 percent of looking to improve that rate, and are using Oviedo as a model. Oviedo residents are the best recyclers in Seminole County, Johnny Edwards, solid waste manager for Seminole County, said. They recycle about 35 percent of their waste, and 500 pounds per home, per year. Residents have access to unlimited bins for recycling at no extra charge, and can earn up to $100 in rebates each year using Recy clebank, a program that gives discounts in exchange for points you earn recycling. The program is free for residents, and included in the citys waste contract. Oviedo is the only city that has it. Since implementing unlimited bins, the city has seen 150 more pounds of waste per home, per year be recycled. Recyclebank has kept The average wage in Seminole County may have fallen nearly two percent since April 2010, but the Oviedo City Council is hoping to reverse that trend and bring new busi them here, Councilman Steve Henken said. At an April 16 meeting the Council passed a change that would quadruple the amount of businesses theyd throw economic incen tives at if they relocate to the city. They also proposed a slew of new incentive programs wage in the county was $38,434, according to economic growth organization Enterprise Florida. In the nearly two years that the city average wages fell to $37,966, forcing the high-paying businesses. In order to hook businesses that pay liv give money to businesses that paid a mini mum of 80 percent of the countys average salary, with tiered incentives for hiring at 115 percent, 150 percent and 200 percent of the average pay. And money is already waiting, Assistant City Manager Bryan Cobb said. Since 2007 the city has annually allocat ed monies into an account to set aside in case we had a business come in that we could use The incentives could add up to between ing on salary. Coupled with other incentive programs, Mayor Dominic Persampiere said he hoped to make the city more competitive against other cities. Without it were at an economic disad vantage, he said. But the Council talked about going even further. Cross-country business trips dont normally pervade Oviedo City Council dis cussions, but discussion on the dais seemed more like the board of a corporation looking to diversify. If businesses are thinking about mov ing from California, New York, Louisiana, then lets go there, Henken said. Lets go tell the story. Thats how you get business.

LeParc, originally approved in 2005, will build out in phases, with commercial space, she said. the corner from LeParc, had been on hold since 2008. But builder representative Temmel said at the rate it is going, the once-dormant As a builder, were seeing signs people are feeling more who have been on the fence for two years or more are actually get ting off that fence and buying. The website of another new development in Oviedo, The Preserve at Lake Charm, says it family homes in total. The city of Oviedo lists two townhome complex, and a 10-unit duplex complex. When complete, all these com munities together will add more than 370 new homes to the area. Winter Springs City Planner Bobby Howell said his city will ments this year that will bring more than 700 new homes to the area. For a while things had slowed down, but weve really noticed a pick up lately, Howell said. Partly this is because weve ap proved a rewrite of the city code around the Town Center to try and encourage business. The Winter Springs website works bringing apartments, town homes and single-family homes to the area. Connected to the Town Center by a winding nature trail, Winter Springs Village will add more than 200 homes to the growing heart of the city, mixing two-story bungalow homes and larger tradi tional homes. The bungalows sit directly on the street with hidden alleyways around back in lieu of traditional driveways in a style similar to Baldwin Park or Cel ebration. Town Center will add apartment options to the area. Jesups Landing, a 171-unit townhome complex approved in 2005, stalled when its original bankruptcy in 2007 in the heart of the housing collapse. Situated track, Howell said. The new developer, Mattamy Homes out of Canada, is in the process of redesigning the layout of the streets and will begin con struction soon, he said. In a similar turn of events, he also lost their original builder ber. There are now 60 townhomes in the works next to the Tuskawil la Country Club. on the edge of Winter Springs, backing up to the Oviedo Mall, will add 36 single-family homes. Even with all the new develop ment, Winter Springs is working to maintain the charm and quality of life residents have come to ex pect, Howell said. As the U.S. economy continues its slow march to recovery, so does Seminole County. New home sales Realtor Jarret Phillips said Oviedo and Winter Springs have a leg up on the com petition. Its a stable, well-established area and not nearly as susceptible home sales doing really well there this year. THIS WEEK in history May 1, 1931 President Herbert Hoover officially dedicates New York Citys Empire State Building. The entire 102-story building went up in just over a year, under budget (at $40 million) and well ahead of schedule. During certain periods of building, the frame grew an astonishing four and a half stories a week.

Theyve included more recycling bins on Park Avenue, which was done in December. hope to put recycling bins in the parks and are debating larger re cycling bins for residents or a payas-you-go method for garbage pickup the more trash you cre ate, the more you pay depend ing on it being cost effective for the city and its residents. The struggle with apartments Theyre also in talks with a local apartment complex to add re cycling there in the next month. Most multi-family dwellings are left out of the convenient commu nity curbside programs, and this would be the start of a new pilot program for Winter Park. Even the larger complexes, for example the Village at Lake Lily, which only has cardboard recycling, and Lofts of Winter Park Village, dont offer their own recycling facilities for everyday materials onsite. Property managers said its be cause of lack of space, and dont see a future with recycling added. Many complexes dont offer it be cause it costs extra money. In this economy, you want to cut costs and recycling costs mon ey, said Debbie Sponsler, section manager for the Orange Countys Utilities Solid Waste Division. But one local apartment complex does offer recycling: Park East and Park Knowles. Property Manager Kerra Smith said that while it does cost them $120 a month for the service, the importance of recycling makes it worth it, especially because her residents want it. of having the recycling outweigh the cost, she said. Having that option to recycle attracts more tenants, Maslow said. Theres also a cost in edu cating tenants on how to use the recycling bins. One of the biggest problems in apartment complex recycling is contamination peo ple putting the wrong things, or even their garbage, in the wrong bins, Sponsler said. Economics play a role in recy cling developments, too. The poor economy has cut waste in Orange and Seminole counties by at least 20 percent people buying less, keeping more and eating out less means less trash. But it also means less money to spend on recycling and the facilities necessary. 30 years in environment and solid waste management consulting, said that the future will be in recy cling, but he doesnt think Florida can reach the 75 percent recycling goal by 2020, and even if it did on a state level, poor rural commu nities would never individually reach it. Unfortunately it takes invest ment, he said. Height thinks its worth the investment and time. As she sips her Whole Foods smoothie from she points out each person bring ing in their own bags to use for shopping. She sees a friend in each one, and a future without so much waste.

Page 4 April 27 May 10, 2012 Seminole Voice I spoke with Joel Salatin last week. Joel is working on the lead ing edge of sustainable farming practices at his Polyface Farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Vir ginia. He makes an appearance in the movie Food, Inc. and numerous other contemporary agricultural media productions. Hes written several books, with his most recent titled Folks, This Aint Normal. The Homegrown Co-op online farmers market and Slow Foods sponsored Joels speaking visit to Rollins College on April 18. Tom Carey: How big is your vegetable garden? Joel Salatin : Its hard to say, but a quarter acre would be about correct and add a quarter acre in hoop houses. As the animals from the hoop houses come out in the spring, we then go in with veg etables starting with sweet corn. We do a lot of micro-site garden ing. Shitake logs under the eaves of the barn get the roof dripping on them. Where the cows are kept at the hay shed in the wintertime, the deep bedding gets churned up muddy and heavily fertilized, almost compost. We grow our potatoes there, its already tilled toes on the ground under some straw. Another barn we have has a southern exposure and thats where we grow our cucumbers. They grow up the side of the barn with moisture dripping from the awnings. Its a real nice fertile micro-site, full of red wrigglers, with compost from the barn ani mals. You can get a lot of space real quick using micro-sites. Tom: At my gardens, I get a lot of requests from folks wanting to help to get some dirt under their Farms Facebook posts and blogs by your interns and apprentices. Do you look at your educational help as a source of affordable labor, or do you put emphasis on teaching the next generation of farmers to help them dip their toe in the water? Joel: We do look at it as an education, and while we certainly do work them plenty hard, we also do some formal evening lectures; we visit other farms and agricultural enterprises. Lest anybody think this is cheap labor when youve rewelded the trailer hitch for the 10th time because somebody took off without lift comes with a cost. Tom: Ive read your new book, Folks, This Aint Nor mal, and numerous Acres USA columns and articles. Following the themes you write about, do you see that decentralized food cient due to appropriate technol ogy and information sources? Joel: We are seeing a lo cal food tsunami that is being enabled by technology. A big hurdle has been economy of scale farm and fork. You cant expect everybody to drive around to 10 farms to get their food. Now, there are companies that are elec media technology was developed for globalization but is being coopted to enable localization. Well see a move away from bricks and mortar to embracing the elec tronic commerce interface. Were to interface the customer and producer. Were making an end run around big warehousing. Retail faades are too expensive, from display coolers and cash registers, to stocking shelves with retail processed products. We did a comparison of our prices and were now cheaper than most competitors in our area, even the organic supermarkets. By lever electronic interface were seeing the beginning of the future.

Feder is one of the 3,826 Junior Achievement volunteers in Cen tral Florida giving back to a com munity one class at a time. are in business you need to give back, she said. It doesnt mat ter where you give back, but a business is a part of a community and you have to give back to that community, thats the community thats buying your product or buying your services, and for me children are the future. Junior Achievement is giving back to 15-year-old Crooms Acad emy students Mahdi Musleem and Amanda Casey by helping them prepare for real-life situa tions outside of the classroom. We learned what to do in realright, but how to talk to people, Musleem said. I would recom mend taking a JA course if youre having trouble with social skills. Casey also said JA helped her learn the skills needed for the ca reer world. If you want experience on how to handle situations in the Casey said. Crooms Intro to Information Technology teacher Debora Pol lock said she is grateful to have Junior Achievement volunteers come into her classroom. My take is, a teacher becomes like a parent, they see us day in and day out, so when other peo the course. She said Junior Achievement comes into her classroom once and week to help students get ready to enter the career world. I think its a very useful pro gram, Pollock said. We so much appreciate it. It gives me a sneak-peek of whats going to be happing in the real world, 15-year-old Crooms student Zack Fedewa said. Winter Springs resident Steve Overstreet helped kids get a sneak-peek into the real world JA courses at Lake Howell High School. The responses Ive gotten from the courses have been very positive, Overstreet said. The [answer] I like most is that every body intended on graduating high school and go onto college. Stephanie Beasley and her 17-year-old daughter Emily have both been impacted by the Ju nior Achievement program, and are grateful for the things it has taught Emily. nancial literacy and how to take a mortgage out on your home, all the things that you dont ever think about when youre in high school or middle school, that will impact you later in life, Emily said. They make sure you know whats coming, so you never get blindsided by something that cial determent. Emily is now continuing to give back through JA by volunteering her own time to the program. Its been really nice and re freshing to see her see the impor tance of good work ethic, her mom, Stephanie, said. Its helped shape her ideal of how she can Emily has also since been awarded Junior Achievement Shining Star for their Ms. Flori da Hall of Fame, and her mom couldnt be happier.

Page 6 April 27 May 10, 2012 Seminole Voice Family Calendar I want to begin by saying that the food at Shogun Japanese Steak house and Sushi Bar in Oviedo tastes so good that I never once thought about reaching for the soy sauce and how many times can you say that after dining at a Japanese restau rant? Yes, the entertainment is there sev eral chefs who can pull off the whiz-bangchop-socki of cutting, dicing and tossing your gling razor sharp knives, but this is a teppan/hibachi restaurant destination because the food is so good. How good? That good, and inventive. I happily followed the advice of my server and started with the seafood soup. Made with tasty worthy meal in itself. I liked it so much that I placed an additional order for a container to take everything on the menu in a Japanese restaurant is also good for you. Opened in 2006, the Lin family came to America with the dream of creating a Japanese steakhouse that would serve the highestquality sushi and seafood. Run by owner/manager Tommy Lin, his desire to create and please shines all over the menu. Shogun offers a wide and in ventive variety of sushi, sashimi and house special rolls, with fun names like Beauty & Sea Roll, UCF Roll, Crazy Tuna Roll, and spicy yellow tail inside and a whole lobster splayed across the I went with the Black Dragon Roll, which is deliciously made of fried lobster and cucumber with eel and avocado on top. Its a melt-in-your-mouth treat, and it can only be found at this restau rant. When it came time for the hibachi chefs to do their show, they sliced and diced a very tender, Shogun achieves a whole When I asked if it was marinated for a month, the answer came quality meat available cooked properly. And the shrimp was as good. Even without the offered sauce, the shrimp had so much taste! More good news: It should be noted here that Shogun now has a Tappanyaki Dinner for Two special with a choice of chicken and steak, or chicken and shrimp, for $29.95. Dinners include vegetables and rice. Lobster and scallops are also available. And the inventiveness of the menu carries over into what my server called a dessert sushi. The Fruit Sensation Sushi made of kiwi and mango, and covered in a thin blanket of strawberries was sweet and refreshing without When I asked Tommy Lin about the breadth and inventive ness of the menu, he said, If you like doing your work, you do it with your heart. Well said and a perfect answer to how this gem of a Japanese restaurant maintains its delicious charm. If youve read this far, tell your server that Josh sent me, and sake shot with each entre.

Two scoreless innings would follow before the Knights found their swing again, thanks to a pair of doubles by D.J. Hicks and Alex Friedrich, who combined for the deciding run in the 8-7 victory. Tulane attempted another wild come of those runs came courtesy of Chris Ta laday, who blasted three triples for four RBIs. Roman Madrid grabbed the save with a scoreless ninth.

TALK T O SANDI > Before I started volunteering as a mental health counselor at the Center for In dependent Living last August, I didnt understand the emotional toll that a dis ability can take on a person. I knew that using a wheelchair or losing your hear ing might pose practical challenges, but I didnt grasp how they could undermine someones sense of self-worth. Then I began working with a CIL client whose disability had triggered depression so severe that getting out of bed not to mention leaving the house was a tremendous struggle. This person felt completely isolated, and the lack of un derstanding from others made things even worse. Fortunately, this person sought out help to overcome depression. Over several sessions we were able to help this client reframe their perspec tive and see lifes possibilities rather than their limitations. Slowly, the client built life and their whole posture shifted toward one of renewed hope. As someone beginning a mental health counseling ca reer, witnessing this clients progress was validating. There are as many variations on this story as there are individual clients and disabilities arent always obvious to the is, a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the deaf, but also those who lose their hear client, a childhood sports accident led to a lifelong health problem that ultimately stole his ability to walk. Each has to learn a way of living thats markedly different almost as many different responses to liv ing with a disability. Some clients develop coping tools on their own, while others need more support. I cant eliminate a clients disability, but I can help them change how they think about it through cognitive behavioral therapy and reality therapy. They might feel powerless to go grocery shopping, when theyre capable of doing it with only a bit of assistance. We go through a pro generating more positive thoughts and practicing these new modes of thinking. As the saying goes, thoughts lead to ac tion. When clients feel in control of their own lives, they quickly begin living in more meaningful and productive ways. It starts small, but eventually they feel em powered to reach their goals whether home or becoming more involved in the community. For some of our clients, coming to CIL understand the nature of disabilities, who recognize their personal attributes and achievements, and who treat them with dignity and dont overload them with unneeded sympathy. Its deeply reward ing to be part of helping clients toward hope. Living with a disability doesnt have to be debilitating. On the contrary, it can personal growth. Alicia Duquette, an Oviedo resident who volunteers as a mental health counselor at the Center for Independent Living, is earning her masters degree in counseling at Nova Southeastern University. Volunteers help achieve CILs mission of helping people with disabilities to achieve independence. CIL is seeking volunteers for key roles. To learn more, visit cilorlando.org or call 407-623-1070. Winter Springs doesnt need surveillance cameras I honestly believe that we are going farthe right of people to move around freely. There is no evidence on record that such a camera is needed because of an intense increase in crime; especially in Winter en someone while the proponents of the what has been said by people at the high dealing with a persons everyday life has at the present for not a single citizen, I am monitoring these cameras. Ed Martinez Jr. From SeminoleVoice.com F ederal budget and the F arm Bill There are a lot of myths circulating about This misinformation stigmatizes the entire funding cuts. The U.S. House budget approved last month proposes to cut SNAP by nearly 20 percent, gutting support for millions of this? The program has grown too much in recent years too many people are shocking that SNAP participation grew by 70 percent from 2006 to 2011 if you fail to mention that the ranks of the unemployed grew by 94 percent over the same period. The Agriculture Committees are rewrit ing Farm Bill legislation beginning this month, and SNAP and other anti-hunger programs are at risk of cuts at a time when they need to be strengthened and protected. Taking care of our neighbors is an American value, and feeding our neighbors is a shared responsibility. We ous support of our volunteers and donors. budget through important anti-hunger programs. We strongly urge our nations leaders to protect anti-hunger programs and make needed investments to protect families from hunger and help charities like ours keep up with need in our community. We also ask them and you to look at SNAP with fresh eyes and an open heart. If you have any doubt that families are strug gling, please visit us at Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and meet the people whose lives are affected by the choices made in the Farm Bill. Dave Krepcho President/CEO, Second Harvest Food Bank inbox lately, Dear Sandi, I received an e-mail from a company saying they reviewed my resume and would like to they want me to obtain a copy of my credit report and send it to them. What should I do? Run! Far, far away. Never, ever, ever give anyone your credit information without a conditional offer of em ployment. Legitimate companies will interview you and go through all of the processes they need to do for hiring and then ask permission to pull a credit report. If they deny you employment based on your credit, you are entitled and they must tell you the reason for the denial. After researching online, I found that the companies asking for this were not hiring, but actually charging people for credit protection and other things they had not asked for. If you do not know who you are giving information to, dont give it! Daily, I receive virus emails, scams and other malicious attempts to obtain my personal information. Be very wary of seekers. Look up the Fair Credit Reporting Act for more details. Employers can ask and they can pull a report, but they have to tell you. No legitimate employer will ask you to do this yourself. Guard your credit data Letters to the editor Guiding others toward hope ALICIA DUQUETTE Guest Writer Send your thoughts (400 words or less) to Associate Editor Isaac Babcock at isaacb@observernewspapers.com
