Road 434 that morning, as the Central Florida to Winter Springs end, theyd have drank 165 kegs of beer, 40 more than the entire week end the year before, said Winter Springs Mayor Charles Lacey. We were blessed with some re ally great weather this weekend, said. Minus a short stall in restocking said beer supply, Lacey said this years event was a stellar success not only for Winter Springs, but the entire community. It was just all around excellent While event organizers focused on the execution of the perfect As the new year of 2013 begins, Seminole State College of Florida continues to work toward the ex pansion of its four campuses. After purchasing 23 acres of land adjacent to the Altamonte Springs campus in 2010, the college took full ownership of the location earlier this month. With that began the initial phase of an expansion that will create 1.4 million square feet of space more than the colleges four campuses combined. This will create a center for education for the region, and also a major employment center for one of the largest areas in Central nications director for Seminole State College of Florida. The new master plan for the expansion was introduced last October, and will include eight new high-rise buildings and two parking structures spread over a 40-acre area. No timeline for con struction has been released, but the expansion is set to take place over a period of 10 years. Altamonte Springs Mayor Pa expansion of the school will be a munity. I think the economic value of having all of those folks in our city is an absolute plus, and I think its going to be awe some for the citizens of Altamon te and the students who go there; When I think of how it started, just a little community college, Altamonte Springs City Man ager Frank Martz said that he too the citys economy. We believe very strongly that Seminole States expansion is a real cornerstone for the eco nomic development in Altamon To pay for the overall cost of the expansion, which is yet to be released, the college will rely on public-private partnerships, and has already been contacted by more than 100 contractors and developers. The college now is looking at potential partners and how the Seminole State would only con for the college, our students and Previously, funding for con struction came from the state. The master plan maps out a plan to expand the campus without using state funding or raising Potential expansion is also in the works for the colleges Ovie do campus, with a brand new master plan that was unveiled in March 2011 at the 10th anniver sary ceremony of the campus. This master plan includes three new buildings for class rooms, labs and support servic es; a 5,000-square-foot multipur pose room; the addition of more than 1,000 parking spaces; and a bike path/nature trail around the campus.

Page 4 He rolls up his sleeves proudly, smiling, to show off the little bumps of scar tissue that line the crook of his arm. Remnants of black sticky adhesive, from a ban dage thats almost always there, smudge his arms, marking the spots where hes given a bit of his life. Theyre his badges of honor. call donating blood a passion of his, and maybe a bit of a mission. Hes a prime example of a said Pat Michaels, executive direc tor of public relations for Floridas When hes devoted to some Russell, who lives in Chuluota, has been donating blood for 34 years, and recently hit the 100-gal lon mark. It was a goal hed set for himself to make by his 50th birthday, and he did it this past lar blood donor, but now donates platelets, which can help eight people each time he goes to the blood bank. The platelets Russell gives help cancer patients, burn victims and children every day. He spends two hours every two weeks in that chair, and hed go more if they let him. Hes saved an estimated 2,400 lives. Hes always shocked to think about how meaningful his little gift is. I never thought Id be saving Michaels said without Russell and others like him, theyd lose patients. Their dedication is criti cal. We call them superheroes be cause they give something that is Michaels said. Every single day someone needs a blood transfu sion, and theres never a day off Russell takes what he does very seriously, but doesnt make a big deal out of his contribution. Whats a little pain, whats All in the family His passion started when he was 16. His mother was and is an avid blood donor she reached 50 gallons and started when she was only 17 and as soon as her three sons could, they were donating. I told them when theyre old a miscarriage and received lots of blood while recovering, and wouldve died without it. She said that pushes her to keep donating and encouraging her sons to as well. She also organizes a blood drive at her church every two months, where all of her men are required to show their support. Educating others Not only is Russell passionate about giving blood and platelets he even drives 45 minutes to some of the blood banks to do nate he loves talking to others about trying it out. No one with a blood donation shirt on out in public will escape Russell. Hell immediately strike up a conversa tion with any stranger, generally starting with the question, How His mission is then to edu cate and encourage the person to try donating platelets. When he meets someone new, he cant help but bring donating up. Hes got ten many of his friends and family members to participate, too. And dont tell him you hate needles; he overcomes that 24 times a year. Im the seed, spreading good Russell has always been a friendly, giving person, ready to said. Hes signed up to be a bone marrow donor, and to his disap pointment hes never been able to donate, but has been close twice. And he doesnt seem to want any for milestones in donating, but when given the choice of a plaque commemorating his donations or a brand new grill, hell always choose the little plaque. That memory lasts forever, he said. THIS WEEK in human history Jan. 27, 1888 The National Geographic Society is founded in Washington, D.C.

He had been found lurking in a cellar of the Parliament building with 2 tons of gunpowder. Kids at the Oviedo Farmers Market talk about what happens when it rains. I dont like thunder storms with lightning and thunder but a gentle rain is okay. Sometimes I wear a poncho or a jacket in the rain. I also have a hot pink umbrella. It is fun to splash in the puddles. Kate M. 11 years old I like the lightningit looks cool. I use boots, a raincoat and an umbrella. People driving cars have to be careful where they are going and the windshield wip ers are on. I like to splash in puddles. Kaden O. 7 1/2 years old I am happy when it rains-it helps the plants grow. I use a purple umbrella and I still play in the rain. The sky is gray and rainbows come out after it rains. Taylor O. 7 1/2 years old Rain helps the flow ers grow-I like yellow flowers. My umbrella helps keep me dry but sometimes I have to clean my shoes. The sunshine goes away but after it rains I like to see rainbows in the sky. Audrey S. 4 years old When it rains the sun is still there, it just goes behind the clouds. I like to splash water on mommy and the playground gets wet. The wind sometimes messes things up. Aiden R. 3 years old The unemployment numbers are drop ping to the lowest levels since 2008, yet going on in our communities. In Central employed and many more are working below their capacity to earn. The rate for people who have fallen off the rolls or work part time when they want full time is six points higher than normal rates. The upside is there are more nowhiring signs in the windows. The down side is, most positions are part time. The other move employers are taking is requiring potential employees to pay for their own background checks and drug screenings. This is similar to the welfare process being hotly debated in Florida. Reimbursement often happens after pany told me their background check is $80 and people have to wait two weeks ing for someone who is unemployed.
