Calendar > 8 For 10 years Nicole Gallagher spent her life on the streets of Sanford near the Sanford Crisis Pregnancy Center. It was where she worked, as a pros titute moving from corner to corner. Where she lived, crashing on couches of boyfriends and bosses. And where crack cocaine. ly climbed the stairs up and into the U.S. Highway 17-92 with good reason she was fairly certain she was preg nant. As with any woman who walks through the Centers doors, volun teers greeted Gallagher and walked her through the process theyve been perfecting for 14 years. Come in. Sit poses. Take a free pregnancy test. Then go through counseling and assistance based on the results. Its the same Oviedo community when they open their second center there in early fall. Our job is to be the help, the hands and the heart for her, said Andrea Krazeise, executive director of the San ford Crisis Pregnancy Center. For Gallagher, the results were pos By summers end a new road connecting State Road 434 to Tuskawilla Road should be Springs Town Center. But it has some Town Center merchants worried that the road will lesson their exposure to passersby. Named for a former city commissioner, Michael Blake Boulevard will wrap from 434 southeast of the center to meet Tuskawilla at the entrance of the Winter Springs Village subdivision. Its more than halfway com month. Its always been an important roadway in the master plans for the center that have been in the works for over a decade, City Engineer Brian Fields said. He said the road is designed to help clear kawilla Road into the Winter Springs Town Center, particularly during rush hours and at times of Winter Springs High School arrival and dismissal. He said it can also help cater Springs Village as construction continues. I know residents back there are eager to have the road on line, Fields said. The sub divisions developer, Meritage Homes, has already completed half of the road from the Village to the Cross Seminole Trail crossing. The remaining half from the trail crossing to 434 is being completed by the city, costing $255,000, paid for by funds garnered by the second-generation one-cent sales tax. Mayor Charles Lacey said that though the area around the citys half of the road is currently undeveloped wetlands, in the long term, the area and Michael Blake Boulevard will play a central role in the future develop ment of the Winter Springs Town Center. Murphys Premium Pet Food Market is one of the two open businesses on the east side of the Town Center facing Tuskawilla, storeowner Kimberly Kalander said. Though she doesnt know for sure if the road will impact her business, she said that the city should focus on reinvigorating businesses in the existing center before branching out.

The mom of three whose husband has been out of work for six months, the man who lost his job and can barely scrape up enough money to get groceries, the good guy who let his tough life lead him to drink too much all just snippets of the daily struggle that many just dont see. But Cindy Shadron is one of the few who not only knows their stories in detail, but also helps to change them into something better. People are hurting everywhere the people right here, Shadron said. A lot of them are starting over and they dont know what to do. Shadron, a native of Oviedo and resident of Geneva, started The Vine Thrift Store in Oviedo when she wanted to create a way to give back.

She started The Forgotten Ones Inc., which is thrift store and an outreach center. Shes dedicated her life to others, said Linda Moscato, who used their food pantry to provide for her son when he lost his job. Shadrons goal is to start a working ranch for young adults 18-25 who are aging out of the foster care system, being released from a juvenile correctional facil ity, or are homeless or runaways. Theyd be able to learn love, lead ership and hard work while being mentored by people who truly care about them, Shadron said. Not only that, the ranch would be horticulture classes for the public. She hopes it will be up and run ning next year. But she had to start some where, and for her The Vine was the beginning. Right now, its her whole life, but she never stops looking toward her ultimate goal. I got so busy here, its ab sorbed all my time, but it didnt absorb my heart and goals, she said. So far, The Vine has spawned The Resource Center there, where Shadron, her husband Mike and volunteers help those in need be include an emergency food pan try and referrals to organizations that can assist them. They also pay for and assist in paperwork to State ID cards and social security cards, which are required to get help from many food pantries and to gain employment. and encouragement. Many lose their vision and goals or have never had anyone ask them what gives hugs, and tells people she loves them. Some cant remember the last time theyve heard that. Ive seen that light they had thats kind of gone, Shadron said. hope for the future. People like Mike Sykes of Oviedo are helped every day. Sykes, who was home them for help after attending their free lunch event a few times. The Shadrons took him to the hospital for detox, got him into an alco holism program and let him stay with them for a couple weeks. In reality, Sykes was a stranger when they helped him through all that. Now, hes part of their Vine fam ily. He said he wouldnt be alive today if it werent for them. Hes been sober for almost two years. Its impacting lives and mine in a very positive way, Sykes said. They showed me how to care about other people and my self. Dean Moscato said hes learned a lot from his hardships, too. When he lost his job, his mother got food from The Vine and sent it to him in Colorado for about a year. Once he got down to Florida, seeing all the good work they do made him want to volunteer his time while he looks for a job. I used to be a lot more judgmental, Moscato said. Ive learned how to be a better person. Mother of three Shanti SuarezCorrea said that Shadron has been a blessing in her life, giving guid ance, groceries and friendship whenever shes needed it. And just like Shadron always says, God has put it on her heart to give this help. It was meant to be. Never feel ashamed to say you need help because God puts the right people in your path, and when you least expect it, Correa said.

For the third option, following the Centers faith-based program, they educated her on the procedure, but left the rest in her and Gods hands. She came in wanting an abortion, but knowing she wouldnt pay for one, Krazeise said. Instead she thought the crack would kill it. clean set of clothes and literature on her op tions, Gallagher went back to the streets and they prayed for Gallaghers little one every day. Krazeise said she would see Gallagher out the centers windows, still working as her belly grew. Krazeise encouraged Gallagher to clean up her act, but it continued until at six months in, clean and sober, Gallagher was bailed out by a friend on Christmas Eve. And an 18-hour crack-binge later, she ended up in premature labor on Christmas day. Krazeises prayers turned to reality as the little baby girl was born with a clean bill of health, and Gallagher de cided to adopt her out to the couple the Center found and agreed to seek treatment. Andrea encouraged me to change my life, Gallagher said. It is because of her and her colleagues today that I am clean and sober af ter 10 years out there. I couldnt have done it without the Sanford Crisis Pregnancy Center they played the main role in my transforma tion. Serving Oviedo/Winter Springs Stories like Gallaghers, Krazeise said, may not be the norm, but they are the proof of the pow er of the services the Pregnancy Crisis Center She estimates that the Sanford center serves anywhere from 100 to 125 girls a month, with the majority being between the ages of 14 and 24, most age 16 or 17. We try to educate girls on their new real ity, then we have to respect their free will, she said. We have to trust that shes going to make the best decision for her. Krazeise and Cindie Thomas, who will di rect the Oviedo center, point to a map of Or ange and Seminole counties that hangs in the Sanford centers board room as proof as to why they chose Oviedo for their second location. The map has neon circle stickers with happy faces on every pregnancy clinic, and sad faces on every abortion clinic. Theres too many sad faces, Krazeise said. It is an underserved community. ford center, but one with no less of a need for their services. With the college (the University of Central Florida) and all the high schools nearby, we see a large need, Thomas said. From the banner hanging outside the new location, she said, shes already started receiv ing client calls. When the Oviedo location is complete, likely by mid-August, it will house three counseling rooms, a library and an Earn as You Learn store where moms-to-be can shop for supplies for themselves and their baby with credits earned by taking courses at the center.

Jenny Andreasson Managing editor Longtime Orlando residents will remem ber Art Grindle best for the TV commer cials that featured him leaping on cars at his Dodge dealership and shouting, I want to sell you a car! When the former Florida legislator and businessman passed away June 10, Semi nole State College of Florida lost one of its most generous benefactors. Those close to Seminole State will re member him for the legacy he left the Col million donation, Seminole State College President Dr. E. Ann McGee said. Art will be remembered for so many things, but our students will remember him because he made their futures pos sible, McGee said. He was a steadfast supporter of Seminole State College for over three decades. From co-founding our Dream Gala in 1984, to the naming of the Art & Phyllis Grindle Honors Institute in 2006, his legacy of helping others will long survive him. The Grindle familys Honors endow ment funds scholarships for honors stu dents, brings national speakers to Semi nole State, funds travel-abroad programs, attend national conferences. Students who complete the Grindle Honors Institute have won some of the largest scholarships available to college transfer students. Seminole State is the only college among 1,200 in the nation to have seven consecutive Jack Kent Cooke Scholars. The JKC scholarship, worth more than $30,000, is considered the most presti gious for two-year graduates. Daniel Leon, a 2011 Jack Kent Cooke Scholar who now attends American University, said Grindle took an interest in mentoring the honors students, often stopping by the Honors Center to visit with them. There was something unique about him, Leon said. With Mr. Grindle, there was an emotional investment in the stu dents. Its something that is also unique about the Honors Program at Seminole State. Seminole County School Board Member band, Bill, were friends with the Grindles for years. Grindle loved meeting the students, He loved to know he was making a Art Grindle was all about. A memorial service for Art and Phyllis Grindle will be held on Friday, July 20, in the Fine Arts Concert Hall on Seminole States Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. The Grindle family has established a memorial scholarship for Honors students. Dona tions can be made to the scholarship in care of the Foundation for Seminole State College.

You may be long past having to worry about what size binders, backpacks or boxes of pens to buy. You may barely remember delib erating over the narrow or wide-ruled notebook paper or debating over the composition or spiral notebooks. Stop for a moment and imagine a quiet child who may be overweight or undernourished. They may not have new clothes or a new backpack to start school. While most kids dread the beginning of school for its discipline, homework and structure, these kids face an addi tional set of anxieties. Even the youngest ones know that its the other kids who get new pens and pencils, notebook paper, folders or notebooks. Never mind a protractor, calculator or compass thats halfway cool. The little ones just want to open a new box of crayons to smell the aroma of newborn color, lined up and pointy.

This is a reprint of his Oct. 25, 1995 Oviedo Voice column titled: The pees and ques of quality lawn care. A recent article in a widely read garden ing magazine about the use of human urine as a fertilizer raised a few chuckles, not to mention a few letters to the editor. The history of spraying the crops is as old as agriculture itself. As noted in F.H. Kings 1911 book, Farmers of Forty Centuries, Chinese farmers would entice travelers in need to make deposits in elaborately decorated roadside privies. These waste products were then greedily applied soils better with pass ing generations. Rice farmers routinely selected a corner of a paddy as a latrine. American homesteaders knew the best place to plant an apple tree was the de pression left at the location of last years outhouse. Using most nitrogen fertilizers in gunpowder formulas, Nazi Germany encouraged citizens to keep Honey Buckets to grow their version of Vic tory Gardens. Contemporary health concerns are paramount, so please note: we are discussing strictly liquid urine from healthy individuals applied to lawns and process of the kidneys has no contagious microorganism functions. Many valuable crop fertility com pounds are found in the golden mists. Nitrogen tops the list, with copious quantities of phosphorous, potassium and calcium readily available. I am sure we do not need to mention the waste and water down the loo, let alone building commensurately huge and smelly treat ment plants not in my backyard. to details are geared more toward the gentlemen of the audience. An article in Permaculture Activist magazine suggests that ladies might use a paper cup as a preliminary collection device. Since its not socially acceptable to drain the mon ster while exposed in a neighborhood, a collection container in the privacy of gallon citrus bottles with a convenient handle are much easier to use than 2 liter soft drink bottles. After a few uses, head the ripe huney bottle to the recycling bin. In the dark of the evening, while the rest of the world is glued to their televi sions watching Roseanne or ALF, saunter out to the backyard with your full jugs and spread the accumulated wealth of golden rain.

Ill bring the utensils, what ever he needs as far as the char coal and the barbeque, and hell bring just these amazing Hawai ian chicken sliders or spicy pork youll never know what well get, Oviedo Mayor Dominic Persampiere said. Our tailgates are never just hamburgers and hot dogs Schenck doesnt allow that. Persampiere said he doesnt know what Schenck does that makes everything so good, it just always is. I will say that Councilman Schenck has outstanding culinary talent, he said. At home, his wife, Doris, says Schencks knack of putting things together making them good, but not remembering what he put in can make her job frustrating when hes not around. Hell be out at a Council meet ing or something, and the kids will ask me to make something he makes and Ill try, but I never real ly know how he does it. Then the kids will always tell me, Mom, it was good, but she says, trail that she knows theyre right. Luckily Schencks secret cooking code rarely needs to be cracked.

Everyone has their thing that they do that helps them tune out from other things, I chop, he said. On this Monday morning he breaks out his new knife to chop up some breakfast. Cooking for himself, repetition and his own palate are his only guides. Its all about what feels right. This mix of garbanzo beans, olives, peppers, fennel, garlic and a last-minute splash of lemon juice you cant forget the acid, he reminds himself thats siz zling on the stove is the same he makes most mornings. Sometimes theres more spice, others less, he jokes, depending on how awake he needs to be that day. Its that time when youre cooking that you can use to think of all the things youre not usu ally thinking about, he said. Its a time where city budgets disap pear, and the stack of papers on his desk down the hall no longer beckon his name. But in the end, his favorite part of cooking, he says, You get to eat!

A year and a half ago, Joe Cou ceiro founded JC 360 Sports Grille with the idea to create an establishment that didnt ca ter to just one demographic. He wanted a place that could be home to couples and families, not just your traditional sports fans. One of JC 360s newest and most popular events is the car cruise, which occurs every third Friday of the month outside the restaurant from 5 to 9 p.m. The Voice sat down with the Oviedo resident and restaurant owner to learn more about the car cruise and what JC 360 has to offer. Voice: How did JC 360 get started? Couceiro: When we opened up the restaurant I wanted a different feel. I wanted it to have some of the benefits of the sports bar, which includes that we wanted to have TVs everywhere we wanted to surround you with TVs, thats where the 360 in the name comes from. But the difference is I wanted it to be a higherquality establishment. V: Why did you choose Oviedo? C: What I liked about this particular location was the di versity of the clientele. It wasnt where youre only reliant on the college crowd. We have a very diverse crowd here that comes here for different things. We have a Shamrock Poker tour that plays here. Thats a totally different demographic that shows up. We get anywhere between 40 and 70 of those folks well get a much more contemporary crowd on Friday, mostly young adults. Late at night, well have the hospitality crowd; when all the restaurants shut down, their employees come here. V: Are there any plans to expand to other locations? C: Thats somewhere between the back and the front of my mind. We want to make sure we are successful here I would love very much to have one or two other locations in Central Florida. V: Tell us more about the car cruise. C: The whole side parking lot is wall-to-wall with these very nice antique cars, like blowyou-away nice. Some of these cars are obviously 30 or 40 years old, and theyre in mint condi tion Ill tell ya, I was really impressed with them. What you do is you get a lot of these folks who simply want to show up with their cars. They hang out by their cars and they do a little tailgate party Its a mini car show. We use that side parking lot because it doesnt interrupt the traffic of the mall.

Kieran Wilson and Evan Ter ry, Seminole High School graduates this year, and Sam Knight and Michael Ikegami, Geneva School graduates this year, of team Tachyon Robotics, worked on their underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for more than 100 hours over the past year. The team won third place by completing specic tasks under water at the MATE ROV Competition at the Orlando YMCA from June 21-23. All the expertise and experience they learned through those 100 hours were put to work on competition day. Every team gets two runs, and the best was taken for scoring. On their rst run, a motor stopped working during their test. It took up 12 of their 15 minutes of run time, but the team was able to x it and get it underwater. Luckily, their second race went smoothly. All four students are heading to college to study engineering in the fall and said this experience has given them a head start in their eld.

The Winter Park Diamond Dawgs are in a tie for the league lead after leaping two spots on the ladder thanks to a seven-game winning streak. And some of those wins have been nail-biters, with the Dawgs just squeaking by on a run or two lead. But in all of those games, the Dawgs have found something theyve struggled with throughout the season consistent run pro duction. The Dawgs have averaged nearly nine runs per game over the course of their season-saving streak, which has put them in a tie with the Leesburg Lightning at the top of the Florida Collegiate Sum mer League. getting their groove back is heavy hitter Michael Danner somewhat losing his own, falling below .400 his .398 batting average still leads the league by a wide margin, and his third long ball of the season yard.

I think this is a must-read workbook for high school and college graduates. your job search and help you to look at your career path through the eyes of an interviewer. Thumbs up! This is for you, Generation Text We have been helping business taxpay ers with their IRS tax problems for a very long time. One of the worst tax violations we encounter is the failure of an employer to remit payroll taxes it has withheld from its employees pay. But despite its gravity, it is one of the most frequent tax problems we encounter. Payroll tax delinquencies are treated harshly The IRS is required by law to give held by their employers whether or not such taxes were remitted to the govern ment. Consequently, when an employer fails to turn over withheld taxes, the IRS loses money. The IRS doesnt like to lose money. Withheld taxes are held in trust for the government The payroll taxes an employer holds back from an employee (called the Trust Fund) never belong to the employer, but rather are held in a constructive trust for the federal government. Thus, every ciary is the United States. As a trustee, the report and turn over all withheld taxes. If you dont do it, it is considered by the feds to be theft of government funds and the IRS may refer the case to its crimi nal investigation division. Installment payment plans for in-business taxpayers Employers who are behind in their pay roll tax deposits can count on immediate and aggressive collection action by the IRS. There is good reason for this: The IRS is concerned that a delinquent payroll tax employer who is still in business will continue to use the Trust Fund for its own purposes. The IRS calls this pyramiding and will shut your business down if you continue to do it, or if it has a reasonable belief that you will continue to do it. Fortunately, there is a solution.
