The excitement is palpable as each child asks for the key to endless travel, adventure and knowledge. Its super heroes, silly stories and cook ing lessons. Captain Underpants, Frogs in Space and Jell-O. Soccer, solar systems and Sunshine State books. Pirates, horses and airplanes. Quirky kids and the fairy tales they dream of. Its comfort, connec tion, courage and comedy with a dragon thrown in for good measure. Can we get this one? How many pages is it? I want to show you! I want all of them! And in that slice of time the parent or grandpar ent, who might have been concerned about bers their own childhood and the summer adventures of Nancy Drew, Clara Barton, selves transported to magical places. Enjoy Read Seminole this summer Whatever we discover about the most current FCAT scores it is a proven concept that kids who read, read, read will be better writers. Writers know the more you read the stronger your writing skills will be. This is not always a conscious process. As the phrases, pace and plot twists lift constructs become part of us. Part of our DNA, as the popular phrase goes. Kids who read will write better. Kids who write will read better. Encourage your kids to make the connection this summer. Make it a page-turner. And dont forget your own books. Setting the example to read with or in front of your child is an amazing gift. They dont have to know that its a juicy beach read or the latest spy thriller. Let your children see you reading. Whether its on your iPad, Kindle or cradled in your hands. Lets read, Seminole all of us! Enjoy Alice, The Musical magical journey featuring intimate musical theater at the Rural Heritage Center. We have been so fortunate to have Spotlight weekend, Alice, The Musical will be featured Friday-Sunday, May 25-27. Adult tickets are $10 and students are $8 for the three performances beginning at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday. Come enjoy the music, dance and thespians. Like a quick-moving tornado, the 20112012 school year has barreled by us. Par ents are like Midwesterners emerging from the depths of a darkened underground shelter into the sunlight. They stumble and blink in the blinding rays of the sun trying to make sense of accelerated time. How did they get here so fast and what exactly will the summer hold? In just a few short days, school will be out for the summer and that odd phenomenon takes place in the space and time continuum. Kids for whom time has dragged over the past nine months, feel the minutes click by a little quicker as each summer day moves by faster and faster. Parents experience just the opposite. The pace of the school year was a blur, but as June arrives it starts to slow and each day stretches out like a lazy hammock until the school bells beckon again in August.

Page 7 TJs Seafood Shack is casual, inviting and fun, and Im happy to report that the quality of the food is consistently amazing. When you arrive, theres a good chance youll meet the sister/broth er owners Mary and Tim, who opened their doors in 2008 and have been winning the Taste of Oviedo every year since. Tim, a seasoned restau rateur, partnered with his business-minded sister Mary to bring this coastal-style seafood shack to Oviedo. Im here to tell you they deliver on all three, and considering how busy they were at a Oviedo locals. Tin signs and wooden plaques on the walls, bare-wood tables and chairs, and upside-down tin buckets as lamp shades may give TJs the look and feel of a casual seafood restaurant, but the owners are serious about their food. It always begins with fresh ingre dients, and even a quick look at the menu says this is no fry house. We could easily make a full meal out of the array of appetizers, so I requested an appe tizer sampler and loved the gator tail (the tail its own distinct taste, and it does not taste like chicken. Its popular enough at TJs that they sell about 150 pounds of gator each month! Another mouth-treat is the customernamed most popular smoked Mahi Mahi ways both with and without the hot sauce. Adding to the fun part of the menu, the fried as I thought they would, and they were truly fun to eat. Try them, youll see what I mean as they (sort of) melt in your mouth. With my love of all things New Orleans, Im thrilled to report that the gumbo held up to the best homemade gumbo Ive ever had another nod to the fresh ingredients so important to this restaurant. And then there were the sweet potato fries, a side order you can have and should have with any en tre. I could have munched on those perfectly seasoned little bites of heaven till the good angel on my shoulder made me stop. And then I ordered the entrees. The crab-cake is always the test for me, and this crab-cake was all fresh crabmeat of good taste. Yes, it comes highly recom mended. Since their Fish Tacos have won awards, I tried the blackened Mahi Mahi wrapped in a soft taco and generously seasoned with awards and also comes highly recommended. Finally, I had to taste the Lobster Roll, served New England style on crunchy French bread, and pronounced it amazing. All that wonderful lobster piled on to a sandwich motto that speaks to Fair Prices. With only one item on the menu coming in at $10.99 and everything else priced under $10, these prices are more than fair. All of their platters may be ordered black ened, grilled or fried and most of the seafood entrees may be ordered in a salad form. tacos are the reason to visit TJs, your nonseafood-eating friends will be happy to know and salads as well. Watch for TJs newest endeavor a food truck, able to serve more than 400 meals at a stop, which joins that popular movement of foodies interested in food served on wheels.

Page 10 Peter Schreyer grabbed onto the microphone, stared out into a sea of weathered faces and celebrated a lifetime of memories rescued from the grave on Friday, May 11. On the steps of the Winter Park Community Center, he in troduced the The Sage Project: Hannibal Square Elders Tell Their Stories, an exhibit designed to capture the recollections of black residents who had lived through more than a century of the citys history. We live in society where we treasure elders, Schreyer, the di rector of Crealde School of Art, said. But he laid bare regrets that we at times fail to preserve their memories. It had been a rush to interview the 18 members of the Sage Proj ect, all of them 85 years old or old er, before it was too late. Between the moment the project started in ing, four of the interviewees died of old age. Just days before the grand opening event, Katherine Ford, who was born before Winter Parks 25th anniversary and had lived until two months before its 125th, died at age 106. The day after the Sage Project told a small part of her story, she was memori alized just down the street. These are stories worth tell ing, Hannibal Square Heritage Center historian Fairolyn Livings ton said. She had spent the bet ter part of the last year gathering them, with the help of Mary Dan iels and Center volunteers. It had been a hundred years of chaos and change as the area grappled repeatedly with is sues of poverty and inequality, while celebrating gifts of prog ress of Highwaymen artists and music inspired by gospel and delta blues. And Winter Park had played a small part in all of it, chronicled on pasteboards dotting the insides of the Hannibal Square Heritage Centers new exhibit. Photographs taken by Schreyer ing glimpse at the eyes of native Winter Parkers who had seen a century in color that we only re member in black and white. But it hadnt come easily. Funding for the project, which has spanned a year, has been tough to come by, Schreyer said. Its hard to raise money for projects with the elderly, he said. I cant tell you how many orga nizations weve asked for funding whove said no, including some of the most respected in Winter Park. But piece-by-piece the project came together, in printed quotes and photographs on the ivory walls of the Heritage Center. Funds from Orange County, Bank of America, Winter Park Histori cal Association and others helped the project ink its way into history. And then on May 11 some of the Hannibal Square areas eldest statesmen and women had their day in the spotlight. Holding his than a dozen of his contempo raries, Winter Park native and Tuskegee airman Richard Hall Jr. smiled and waved to the crowd. Then the families of those Sages recently passed lit candles, of memory while dozens looked on. Staring from out in the crowd, a smile crept across Winter Park Commissioner Tom McMackens face. This is why were all here, McMacken said. This is commu nity. As the presentation ended and gave way to a night of visitors exploring the new exhibit just next door, Ken Wright, a bit of gray speckling his beard and hair, clutched a plaque in his hands and headed home. The sun sank behind him as he walked east from the back steps of the Com munity Center. But ahead of him it still lit a tiny white house with green shutters across Pennsylva nia Avenue. The plaque was for his aunt, Evelyn Lena Vivian Wright Mann, who had lived to be 101 years old. The tiny house just a few feet ahead was hers too, from the day she was born until the day she died. Just around the corner, along a wall at the Heritage Cen ter, a spotlight keeps the sages lifetime of memories aglow. This was her home, Wright said. She never left. r fnrtbtrr rfntbrfnrtbtrr rf rfntb f Kathy Krug, Licensed Reverse Mortgage Specialist Changing Seniors Lives with Reverse Mortgages407.695.9739 REVERSE MORTGAGE SENIOR VOICE THRIVE @ 55 AND BEYOND!

That said, I am an unlikely candidate to be writ ing this column. My father died instantly of a heart attack at age 54, and my brother at age 62. I carry the additional baggage of a high cholesterol level. Against this backdrop, I likely value the gift of life a tad more than most people. My odds did not look that great as I turned to a running regimen in my early 40s, and this decision is very likely the reason I am here to tell my story. I have come to face the fact that every one is aging and that there is a danger that older people who have put years into stay slow down. So I came up with the idea of sharing my experiences and encouraging runners to hang in there as they age. Also, I see this as a way to give younger runners (and at my age most of them are younger) a heads-up and positive attitude about the inevitable decline in performance we all face. The message can be summed up with a saying I recently came upon: Life is not about waiting for the rain to stop; its about dancing in the rain. Mother Nature quietly and inexorably sneaks up on us and provides mathemati cal certitude that we lose ground as we age. Running literature doesnt do much to help the average runner like me. We are beset in the press with the superhuman performance of aged runners achieving astounding results. While I applaud their achievements, I know that I am growing slower and slower. Not only that, I am at the age where the decline accelerates. With 30,000 plus miles and 280 races now under my belt, I bless the day I made the decision to pursue a running regimen. Over the past 30 years, I have run in more than 30 countries on four continents and have built a treasure trove of memories. themselves, and my career as a corporate Aging runners are already in a very good place. Most are in the 30-percent category of the U.S. population who are not overweight. They also are statistically in a very good place health-wise. Even though the majority of runners may never have heard of the Stanford University School of Medicines 20-plus-year study of runners then 50 years old (now more than 70 years old), they are destined to live longer, healthier and more productive lives. Twenty years later the study found that runners are 50 percent less likely to die early deaths and that initial disabilities occurred six years later in runners, and they had fewer deaths from other diseases. Furthermore, running is not harmful to the legs. Another valuable study was done by the Furman Institute on the physiology of aging and the appropriate responses to what happens as we age. Yes, we will get older and slower. What is great about the Furman study is that it describes what is happening as we age and what we can do about it. The heart grows weaker, con nective tissues deteriorate and energy declines. So we runners lose speed, stride length grows shorter and we lose stamina. The Furman study provides advice on how goals. In short, it provides a blueprint to hang in there and live a realistic and happy running life for a long time. I think most runners are like me and need a reality check that the merry-goround slows down long before it stops, and that this process starts in our 40s and down. Luckily, I have a strong belief in the possibility of eternal happiness.

Page 14 Championship Saturday ended with slumped shoulders, but the University of Central Florida Knights still have a reason to hold their heads high: They nearly beat the No. 5 team in the nation to end the season with a championship. They came one game short. But that game was one of continu ing frustration for the Knights, who fought early to hold onto parity with a Rice teams hot bats that drilled UCF Only once did the Knights manage a hit while a runner was on base. They left a dozen stranded after innings started strongly. In two straight innings, trail ing 4-1, the Knights put two runners on base with an out or less, only to watch the inning collapse instantly with quick double plays. That took the wind out of the Knights sails in situations when they usually found a divine wind. D.J. Hicks still found a way through the Owls brick wall defense, picking up both of his teams two RBI. But it wouldnt be enough to stop the red hot Owls, who won 5-2. The season isnt nearly over for the Knights, who enter the Conference USA Tournament with not only the best record in their pod, but a shot at games, theyll take on the winner of the other pod in the C-USA tourney, likely Rice. The Tournament started Thursday UAB at press time. At 4 p.m. Friday they face East Carolina, then at noon Saturday against Tulane. The Knights have wins against all three of those teams this season.

Page 15 THIS WEEK in political history June 5, 1933 The United States goes off the gold standard, a monetary system in which currency is backed by gold. The Great Depression of the 1930s had frightened the public into hoarding gold. Roosevelt ordered all gold coins and gold certificates in denominations of more than $100 turned in for other money. Students at Wee the People Preschool in Sanford talked excitedly about their upcoming graduation activities. I am getting a diplo ma for all of the hard work. Were going to ride in a limousine thats a big car. Were going to wear a cap and gown at our graduation. James L. 4 years old This is the first time Ill ride in a limou sine.

TALK T O SANDI > EMPLOYMENT Ask Sandi The unemployment rate is going down and more jobs are being advertised. Yeah, the recession is over and we can all rest easy. Well, not exactly. It is true the market seems to be opening up. Recent ly, at the Mayors Job Fair, we saw more companies and more positions avail able. There were not only seasonal and hospitality positions, but longer-term opportunities with major companies like FedEx and Coca-Cola as well. It is not time to let down your guard by any means. Competition is still tough. AmeriCorps VISTA Volunteers and the resumes I am seeing are amazing. I am so impressed with the talent still avail able in the market. (To see the positions go to CFEC.org) This tells me the market is still really tight. The other thing I am seeing is very lit of jobseekers coming in for assistance. We generally see about 40 or 50 people a day. The Tuesday before the job fair we saw more than 80 people. The good news is we are seeing more people landing good jobs. We started a job skills boot camp about a year ago and we are seeing a high percentage of our campers get jobs. The next class will start June 14 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. required, and space is limited. You can RSVP to me.

As America searches for solutions to its economic woes, one of the most innova tive and productive job-creating engines is being overlooked. Its a case of not seeing the trees for the forest. A recent national study came to a compelling conclusion nationwide, its the young, small startup companies that are creating the most new jobs about three million annu ally. And if you look deeper, you will see that its a small num ber of small compa nies usually young in their existence creating these jobs. Last year, the University of Central Floridas Business Incubation Program graduated more than 20 companies that are now succeeding with further assistance FL. And they are creating jobs. Last year UCF accepted a record number of 64 new startup companies. Over the last 10 years, the UCF Business Incubation Program has helped more than 200 client companies that in 2011 accounted for more than 1,600 new jobs. What kinds of businesses are these? A St. Cloud company helps Florida ranchers and farmers sell fresh, locally grown foods to Florida restaurants and hotels. A Daytona Beach graduate com pany is gearing up to mass-produce its patented wind turbines that outperform anything on the market. A client com pany in Kissimmee recently completed filming a feature length motion picture. In Leesburg, a client company pro duces an award-winning video series on health care and is doing it so well that the National Business Incubation As sociation awarded them the title of 2012 Outstanding Incubator Client in the nontechnology category. A client company in the Central Florida Research Park disaster management agencies cope with tornadoes and hurricanes. The UCF Business Incubation Pro gram is one of thousands of similar programs nationwide. At UCF, client companies range from industry leaders in laser photonics, simulation technolo gy, rapid prototyping, web development and alternative energy to a commercial delivery service for area restaurants. Americas greatness lies in our ability to adapt to new conditions with inno vation and enthusiasm. That spirit of innovation, enthusiasm combined with perseverance, and an entrepreneurial culture is what made America so pros perous for so long. It continues to be played out daily in small, young startup companies all across the country. What can we really do? Increase the success rate of these companies and you create greater prosperity. A recent study reported that five-year survival rate of Florida establishments is 37 percent. That value places Florida dead last in the U.S. in that statistical category. Thats right, 50th. Without even passing judgment on the good or bad thing, just think of the consequences of increas ing that rate by 5 percent or 10 percent. Cultivation of fertile ground wherein companies can be successful benefits everyone. Not all companies will survive, but we should create a nurturing environ ment where an entrepreneurs lack of experience can be mitigated and pure market forces can be the major deter mining factor in its survival rate. Thats where youll find the real wealth of our region and nation!

Writers know the more you read the stronger your writing skills will be. This is not always a conscious process. As the phrases, pace and plot twists lift constructs become part of us. Part of our DNA, as the popular phrase goes. Kids who read will write better. Kids who write will read better. Encourage your kids to make the connection this summer. Make it a page-turner. And dont forget your own books. Setting the example to read with or in front of your child is an amazing gift. They dont have to know that its a juicy beach read or the latest spy thriller. Let your children see you reading. Whether its on your iPad, Kindle or cradled in your hands.

In just a few short days, school will be out for the summer and that odd phenomenon takes place in the space and time continuum. Kids for whom time has dragged over the past nine months, feel the minutes click by a little quicker as each summer day moves by faster and faster. Parents experience just the opposite.

Page 7 TJs Seafood Shack is casual, inviting and fun, and Im happy to report that the quality of the food is consistently amazing. When you arrive, theres a good chance youll meet the sister/broth er owners Mary and Tim, who opened their doors in 2008 and have been winning the Taste of Oviedo every year since. Tim, a seasoned restaurateur, partnered with his business-minded sister Mary to bring this coastal-style seafood shack to Oviedo. Im here to tell you they deliver on all three, and considering how busy they were at a Oviedo locals. Tin signs and wooden plaques on the walls, bare-wood tables and chairs, and upside-down tin buckets as lamp shades may give TJs the look and feel of a casual seafood restaurant, but the owners are serious about their food. It always begins with fresh ingre dients, and even a quick look at the menu says this is no fry house. We could easily make a full meal out of the array of appetizers, so I requested an appetizer sampler and loved the gator tail (the tail its own distinct taste, and it does not taste like chicken. Its popular enough at TJs that they sell about 150 pounds of gator each month! Another mouth-treat is the customernamed most popular smoked Mahi Mahi ways both with and without the hot sauce. Adding to the fun part of the menu, the fried as I thought they would, and they were truly fun to eat. Try them, youll see what I mean as they (sort of) melt in your mouth. With my love of all things New Orleans, Im thrilled to report that the gumbo held up to the best homemade gumbo Ive ever had another nod to the fresh ingredients so important to this restaurant. And then there were the sweet potato fries, a side order you can have and should have with any entre. I could have munched on those perfectly seasoned little bites of heaven till the good angel on my shoulder made me stop. And then I ordered the entrees. The crab-cake is always the test for me, and this crab-cake was all fresh crabmeat of good taste. Yes, it comes highly recommended. Since their Fish Tacos have won awards, I tried the blackened Mahi Mahi wrapped in a soft taco and generously seasoned with awards and also comes highly recommended. Finally, I had to taste the Lobster Roll, served New England style on crunchy French bread, and pronounced it amazing. All that wonderful lobster piled on to a sandwich motto that speaks to Fair Prices. With only one item on the menu coming in at $10.99 and everything else priced under $10, these prices are more than fair. All of their platters may be ordered black ened, grilled or fried and most of the seafood entrees may be ordered in a salad form. tacos are the reason to visit TJs, your nonseafood-eating friends will be happy to know and salads as well.

Page 10 Peter Schreyer grabbed onto the microphone, stared out into a sea of weathered faces and celebrated a lifetime of memories rescued from the grave on Friday, May 11. On the steps of the Winter Park Community Center, he in troduced the The Sage Project: Hannibal Square Elders Tell Their Stories, an exhibit designed to capture the recollections of black residents who had lived through more than a century of the citys history. We live in society where we treasure elders, Schreyer, the di rector of Crealde School of Art, said. But he laid bare regrets that we at times fail to preserve their memories. It had been a rush to interview the 18 members of the Sage Proj ect, all of them 85 years old or old er, before it was too late. Between the moment the project started in ing, four of the interviewees died of old age. Just days before the grand opening event, Katherine Ford, who was born before Winter Parks 25th anniversary and had lived until two months before its 125th, died at age 106. The day after the Sage Project told a small part of her story, she was memorialized just down the street. These are stories worth tell ing, Hannibal Square Heritage Center historian Fairolyn Livingston said. She had spent the bet ter part of the last year gathering them, with the help of Mary Dan iels and Center volunteers. It had been a hundred years of chaos and change as the area grappled repeatedly with issues of poverty and inequality, while celebrating gifts of prog ress of Highwaymen artists and music inspired by gospel and delta blues. And Winter Park had played a small part in all of it, chronicled on pasteboards dotting the insides of the Hannibal Square Heritage Centers new exhibit. Photographs taken by Schreyer ing glimpse at the eyes of native Winter Parkers who had seen a century in color that we only re member in black and white. But it hadnt come easily. Funding for the project, which has spanned a year, has been tough to come by, Schreyer said. Its hard to raise money for projects with the elderly, he said. I cant tell you how many orga nizations weve asked for funding whove said no, including some of the most respected in Winter Park. But piece-by-piece the project came together, in printed quotes and photographs on the ivory walls of the Heritage Center. Funds from Orange County, Bank of America, Winter Park Histori cal Association and others helped the project ink its way into history. And then on May 11 some of the Hannibal Square areas eldest statesmen and women had their day in the spotlight. Holding his than a dozen of his contempo raries, Winter Park native and Tuskegee airman Richard Hall Jr. smiled and waved to the crowd. Then the families of those Sages recently passed lit candles, of memory while dozens looked on. Staring from out in the crowd, a smile crept across Winter Park Commissioner Tom McMackens face. This is why were all here, McMacken said. This is commu nity. As the presentation ended and gave way to a night of visitors exploring the new exhibit just next door, Ken Wright, a bit of gray speckling his beard and hair, clutched a plaque in his hands and headed home. The sun sank behind him as he walked east from the back steps of the Community Center. But ahead of him it still lit a tiny white house with green shutters across Pennsylva nia Avenue. The plaque was for his aunt, Evelyn Lena Vivian Wright Mann, who had lived to be 101 years old. The tiny house just a few feet ahead was hers too, from the day she was born until the day she died. Just around the corner, along a wall at the Heritage Cen ter, a spotlight keeps the sages lifetime of memories aglow. This was her home, Wright said. She never left. r fnrtbtrr rfntbrfnrtbtrr rf rfntb f Kathy Krug, Licensed Reverse Mortgage Specialist Changing Seniors Lives with Reverse Mortgages407.695.9739 REVERSE MORTGAGE SENIOR VOICE THRIVE @ 55 AND BEYOND!

That said, I am an unlikely candidate to be writing this column. My father died instantly of a heart attack at age 54, and my brother at age 62. I carry the additional baggage of a high cholesterol level. Against this backdrop, I likely value the gift of life a tad more than most people. My odds did not look that great as I turned to a running regimen in my early 40s, and this decision is very likely the reason I am here to tell my story. I have come to face the fact that everyone is aging and that there is a danger that older people who have put years into stayslow down. So I came up with the idea of sharing my experiences and encouraging runners to hang in there as they age. Also, I see this as a way to give younger runners (and at my age most of them are younger) a heads-up and positive attitude about the inevitable decline in performance we all face. The message can be summed up with a saying I recently came upon: Life is not about waiting for the rain to stop; its about dancing in the rain. Mother Nature quietly and inexorably sneaks up on us and provides mathematical certitude that we lose ground as we age. Running literature doesnt do much to help the average runner like me. We are beset in the press with the superhuman performance of aged runners achieving astounding results. While I applaud their achievements, I know that I am growing slower and slower. Not only that, I am at the age where the decline accelerates. With 30,000 plus miles and 280 races now under my belt, I bless the day I made the decision to pursue a running regimen. Over the past 30 years, I have run in more than 30 countries on four continents and have built a treasure trove of memories. themselves, and my career as a corporate Aging runners are already in a very good place. Most are in the 30-percent category of the U.S. population who are not overweight. They also are statistically in a very good place health-wise. Even though the majority of runners may never have heard of the Stanford University School of Medicines 20-plus-year study of runners then 50 years old (now more than 70 years old), they are destined to live longer, healthier and more productive lives. Twenty years later the study found that runners are 50 percent less likely to die early deaths and that initial disabilities occurred six years later in runners, and they had fewer deaths from other diseases. Furthermore, running is not harmful to the legs. Another valuable study was done by the Furman Institute on the physiology of aging and the appropriate responses to what happens as we age. Yes, we will get older and slower. What is great about the Furman study is that it describes what is happening as we age and what we can do about it. The heart grows weaker, con nective tissues deteriorate and energy declines. So we runners lose speed, stride length grows shorter and we lose stamina. The Furman study provides advice on how goals. In short, it provides a blueprint to hang in there and live a realistic and happy running life for a long time. I think most runners are like me and need a reality check that the merry-goround slows down long before it stops, and that this process starts in our 40s and down. Luckily, I have a strong belief in the possibility of eternal happiness.You are invited to attend a presentation on running by Jack Gallagher on Thursday, May 31, at 7 p.m. at St. Margaret Mary Parish Center on Park Avenue.

Page 14 Championship Saturday ended with slumped shoulders, but the University of Central Florida Knights still have a reason to hold their heads high: They nearly beat the No. 5 team in the nation to end the season with a championship. They came one game short. But that game was one of continu ing frustration for the Knights, who fought early to hold onto parity with a Rice teams hot bats that drilled UCF Only once did the Knights manage a hit while a runner was on base. They left a dozen stranded after innings started strongly. In two straight innings, trail ing 4-1, the Knights put two runners on base with an out or less, only to watch the inning collapse instantly with quick double plays. That took the wind out of the Knights sails in situations when they usually found a divine wind. D.J. Hicks still found a way through the Owls brick wall defense, picking up both of his teams two RBI. But it wouldnt be enough to stop the red hot Owls, who won 5-2. The season isnt nearly over for the Knights, who enter the Conference USA Tournament with not only the best record in their pod, but a shot at games, theyll take on the winner of the other pod in the C-USA tourney, likely Rice. The Tournament started Thursday UAB at press time. At 4 p.m. Friday they face East Carolina, then at noon Saturday against Tulane. The Knights have wins against all three of those teams this season.

Page 15 THIS WEEK in political history June 5, 1933 The United States goes off the gold standard, a monetary system in which currency is backed by gold. The Great Depression of the 1930s had frightened the public into hoarding gold. Roosevelt ordered all gold coins and gold certificates in denominations of more than $100 turned in for other money.Students at Wee the People Preschool in Sanford talked excitedly about their upcoming graduation activities.I am getting a diploma for all of the hard work.

TALK tT O SANDI > EMPLOYMENT Ask Sandi The unemployment rate is going down and more jobs are being advertised. Yeah, the recession is over and we can all rest easy. Well, not exactly. It is true the market seems to be opening up. Recently, at the Mayors Job Fair, we saw more companies and more positions avail able. There were not only seasonal and hospitality positions, but longer-term opportunities with major companies like FedEx and Coca-Cola as well. It is not time to let down your guard by any means. Competition is still tough. AmeriCorps VISTA Volunteers and the resumes I am seeing are amazing. I am so impressed with the talent still available in the market. (To see the positions go to CFEC.org) This tells me the market is still really tight. The other thing I am seeing is very litof jobseekers coming in for assistance. We generally see about 40 or 50 people a day. The Tuesday before the job fair we saw more than 80 people. The good news is we are seeing more people landing good jobs. We started a job skills boot camp about a year ago and we are seeing a high percentage of our campers get jobs. The next class will start June 14 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. required, and space is limited. You can RSVP to me.

As America searches for solutions to its economic woes, one of the most innova tive and productive job-creating engines is being overlooked. Its a case of not seeing the trees for the forest. A recent national study came to a compelling conclusion nationwide, its the young, small startup companies that are creating the most new jobs about three million annually. And if you look deeper, you will see that its a small number of small compa nies usually young in their existence creating these jobs. Last year, the University of Central Floridas Business Incubation Program graduated more than 20 companies that are now succeeding with further assistance FL. And they are creating jobs. Last year UCF accepted a record number of 64 new startup companies. Over the last 10 years, the UCF Business Incubation Program has helped more than 200 client companies that in 2011 accounted for more than 1,600 new jobs. What kinds of businesses are these? A St. Cloud company helps Florida ranchers and farmers sell fresh, locally grown foods to Florida restaurants and hotels. A Daytona Beach graduate company is gearing up to mass-produce its patented wind turbines that outperform anything on the market. A client com pany in Kissimmee recently completed filming a feature length motion picture. In Leesburg, a client company pro duces an award-winning video series on health care and is doing it so well that the National Business Incubation Association awarded them the title of 2012 Outstanding Incubator Client in the nontechnology category. A client company in the Central Florida Research Park disaster management agencies cope with tornadoes and hurricanes. The UCF Business Incubation Program is one of thousands of similar programs nationwide. At UCF, client companies range from industry leaders in laser photonics, simulation technolo gy, rapid prototyping, web development and alternative energy to a commercial delivery service for area restaurants. Americas greatness lies in our ability to adapt to new conditions with innovation and enthusiasm. That spirit of innovation, enthusiasm combined with perseverance, and an entrepreneurial culture is what made America so prosperous for so long. It continues to be played out daily in small, young startup companies all across the country. What can we really do? Increase the success rate of these companies and you create greater prosperity. A recent study reported that five-year survival rate of Florida establishments is 37 percent. That value places Florida dead last in the U.S. in that statistical category. Thats right, 50th. Without even passing judgment on the good or bad thing, just think of the consequences of increasing that rate by 5 percent or 10 percent. Cultivation of fertile ground wherein companies can be successful benefits everyone. Not all companies will survive, but we should create a nurturing environ ment where an entrepreneurs lack of experience can be mitigated and pure market forces can be the major deter mining factor in its survival rate. Thats where youll find the real wealth of our region and nation!Dr. Tom ONeal, associate vice president for Research and Commercialization at the University of Central Florida, is founder and executive director of the University of Central Florida Business Incubation Program and president of the Florida Business Incubation Association.Its not over yetDR.
