Friends and family gather to remember Spc. Brenden Salazar at Hagerty High PHOTO BY SARAH WILSON Its exactly one day shy of a month since Christmas when Abigail, a Keeth Elementary fourth-grader, sits down at her school desk to compose her last thank-you card of the season.

Page 2 running together. Its a sentiment not even 1,000 cards could fully capture, Keeth PTA president Tiffany DeBerry said, but one Abigail and her schoolmates are trying their best to accomplish. Scheduled in blue and purple marker on the classroom agenda in between a lesson on cause and effect and a study of a National Geographic article, at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 24, Mrs. Vander mays class broke from the routine for Letters to Soldiers. Since winter break, the Keeth Elementary School PTA collected more than 1,000 leftover Christ with thank-you messages and drawings to send to soldiers serv ing overseas. For the last two weeks of January, each teacher paused lesson plans to allows all of Keeths 600-plus students to write messages of thanks to the men and women of the U.S. mili tary. The kid-crafted cards, 1,004 counted total, are set to be mailed on Monday to DeBerrys cousin Brian whos serving his fourth tour in the Middle East. In four to six weeks when the packages ar rive, Brian has agreed to video his unknowing units reaction to the messages mailed by the students and send back footage and photos of the big opening. The kids arent just mailing these letters off and thats it. This is really going to go full circle and let them get to see the faces of the people theyre impacting, DeBer ry said. It really shows them the impact they can have on one person. Its a lesson thats gone beyond the idea of just giving thanks, she said. From second graders get ting a math lesson by working of cards collected, to Mrs. Vander mays class using it to learn the correct way to write a letter, and an assortment of other unplanned lessons in between. What is the military, exactly? How do you spell soldier? What happens in a war when the other team wins? Questions pepper Mrs. Van dermays room as her 19 students arm themselves with markers and pens, and she scrawls the correct gratitude and appreciate on the rooms white board. Some reach straight for the red, white and blue, using rulers to line up sketches of American their messages with smiley faces colored uniforms. I hope it makes them feel like someone is thinking of them and theyre not alone, Nick, one of the fourth graders, said in be tween adding patriotic polka dots to his page. I want to make one for every soldier there is. How cool would that be? a girl sitting up front named Carissa asked before start ing work on her second card. One group of desks over, look ing down through strands of her long brown hair, Reese uses a magic marker to draw arrows sur rounding the Made in the USA stamp imprinted on the back of her card. Its a good life lesson for our kids to know and always be ap preciative to the people that serve our country, Keeth Principal Pete Gaffney said. I think its great for our kids to see that we support the U.S. military and recognize their efforts to support and pro tect our country and community. The slow shipping process of mail to the soldiers stationed in Afghanistan means itll be more than a month until the students hear what the recipients thought of their collection of cards, so until then theres only hopes. I hope he likes it, or she, said Cristina, seated in the back of the room, glitter from her card now gleaming in specks on her hands and face. I hope that theyre happy and they think someone cares about them over there, Abigail said before closing her last card and beginning to pack up her green pencil case. I want them to know we care about them here too. THIS WEEK in history Feb. 1, 1884 The first portion of the Oxford English Dictionary is published.

Brian Thomas 110 Geneva Drive, Oviedo, Florida(Across From Ace Hardware) THOMAS PRODUCE KEETH | Children learn selflessness during letter campaign C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE HONOR | Salazar is first Husky honored C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE Even though I couldnt hear it, I knew what he was saying, Nelson said, his lip quivering, eyes closed, addressing a crowd of nearly 300 gathered outside the school. He was thinking Thanks dad for having my back. Thats the memory, he said, that will always stay with him of Brenden and his time at Hagerty. This week, six months after Spc. Brenden Salazar a 2010 Hagerty graduate died in com bat in Afghanistan, the memory of his life was for mally installed at the school as a Husky Hero, student to give his life in the line of duty. A plaque at the entrance to the school, un veiled during a ceremony Jan. 25, honors Brenden for making at 20 years old. As a new school, we have the opportunity to do something that some schools cant, Hagerty Principal Sam Momary said. We can recognize from the begin ning students like Brenden who have given their lives for their country. rang out as the plaque was un of Salazars family, friends and fellow Huskies watching from front steps of the school. I was very pleased, very hon ored, Salazars mother, Jovanna Nelson said. It makes me very proud that Brenden was from Hagerty. During his tenure at Hagerty, Jim Nelson reminisced that Bren den was never big into extracur riculars, more often than not at home cooking, building a com puter, or taking care of and play ing video games with his little sis ter Hannah as she would recover An average student with an above average sense of loyalty and higher calling to serve, Brenden would leave for boot camp four months after his Hagerty gradua tion. Principal Momary says Bren dens legacy is all the more memo rable for its humble start in school to one of hero-worth admirability in his service and passing. It makes this all the more meaningful, Momary said, because thats what our coun try is built on, the backs of average people doing extraordi nary things. Jim Nelson will never forget the last day he trailed behind Brenden on his way to school, following closely per Brendens request, just incase at the slight incline at the intersection of State Road 419 and Lockwood he hap pened to roll backwards in his new 5-speed car hed hit his dad instead of a stranger. He hopes the plaque will help others to never so many men and women make for our freedom every day. Every day I drive past Hager ty on my way to work I think of that special bonding moment, and I realize how short life is and it helps me put things into perspec tive and understand the priorities in life, he said. There are two words Id like to leave with you today: Never forget. Not just for Brenden, but all of the young men and women so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we do today. It makes this all the more meaningful, because thats what our country is built on, the backs of average people doing extraordinary things.

Page 4 L izzie Wirgau is back in Afri ca again. As she comes into view of a group of Malawi women, they start to sing as they do every time she visits them. Its their welcome song for her, she knows, even if the only word she recognizes is when they joyfully add in her name. Wirgau has been to Africa many times, and her favorite people to visit are those of this group of widows in Malawi. They do their happy holler when shes near, sing her song, and then she joins them for a dance. Wirgau is special to them because shes giv en them a way to reach the world with their talents. Shes given them hope. The women are one of several groups in Africa Wirgau has partnered with for her non The organization sells the craftsmens products online, giv ing them a worldwide audience for their goods. All of the items on the site, which include a clutch made out of printed African fab ric in a pastel purple with trendy gold chevron stripes, bright and woven iPad cases, and rugs youd dcor shop, are all handmade by craftsmen in Malawi, Kenya and Ethiopia. Its our goal to give these craftsman access to the worldwide market and to empower them to provide for their families, Wir gau, a Winter Park resident, said. She purchases a bulk amount of their products, pays the crafts men at that time and then sells go directly back to Africa and are used to buy more products from the artisans. Wirgau, 23, a recent University of Central Florida graduate, was inspired after a mission trip to Af rica when she was 20. You fall in love with the country, the people, the kids it changes you, she said. Its hard not to feel compelled to make a difference, to do something. When youve gone to Africa, met the people and heard their stories, that doesnt leave your mind, said Laura Cook, Chil dren of the Nations com munity rep resentative for Orlando, the organi zation that connected Wirgau to the widows group in Malawi. And Wirgau knew she want ed to do something, but didnt know what. On her third trip to the country she was struck by the communities of craftsmen there, including the group of widows who made purses, and an idea hit her. These were items that lots of young Americans would want to buy. And with that, Market Colors was born. In August of 2011 the organiza tion was formed, and in Septem ber 2012 the online store opened. Wirgau said Market Colors is dif ferent because it doesnt give aid, it instead allows those in poverty to make their own money and provide for their families, many of which they are the sole providers for. Before theyd hope to sell their goods to a mission ary walk ing by or to someone from another town visit ing. Now, Wirgau buys a hundred or more of their products at the same time. Its a very important vehicle and almost a lifeline for the crafts men in Africa, said Matthew We know that the need is so great. Many of the men and women had no hope before, resorting to An ocean-spanning passion Market Colors was started by a UCF grad to sell fashion-forward products made by craftsmen in Africa, with the proceeds going to their homes BRITTNI JOHNSON The Voice LEFT PHOTO BY SARAH WILSON THE VOICE RIGHT PHOTO COURTESY OF LIZZIE WIRGAU Lizzie Wirgaus passion for Africa became a business that helps women pro vide for their families.

Page 5 LOVE O ne step into Mary Lanes closet and its clear what to ceiling, the closet which is more like the size of a small bed room is a sea of vibrant green and pure pink, the signature col ors of clothing brand Lilly Pulit zer. Lilly-themed paintings, Lilly stuffed animals, rows and rows of Lilly shoes and enough pink sweaters and patterned sundress es for every day of the year pop out from each inch of the room. I wear exclusively Lilly ev ery day, Lane said. This is my niche. And she isnt kidding. She said 98 percent of her clothing collec tion is the Lilly Pulitzer brand, home, not counting the items she keeps in storage. She never has, and said she never will, give up a Lilly piece. Shes even has a cus tom Lilly golf cart and bike, and has named her little cocker span iel puppy Lilly, whom she dresses in only Lilly-looking sweaters, of course. Lanes been wearing the line since she was a little girl, and in the last 11 years has amassed a collection large enough to never utter the common words hated by husbands and boyfriends every where, I have nothing to wear! Lane, who is a Longwood resi dent, said she loves the preppy chic vibe of the clothes, but also the history behind them. Socialite Lilly Pulitzer started the brand, which offers a very Florida-resortappropriate selection of prints horses and palm trees, in 1959 in Palm Beach. Pulitzer wanted a dress made to hide all the juice stains she got while serving at her little juice stand in her husbands citrus groves. Since then, its been a brand that follows the trends, but stays true to its roots, and of fers clothing for every age and oc casion a woman needs, Lane said. It was a brand made for women by a woman. Lilly in general has a very de vout following, Meredith Gard ner, manager at the Park Avenue Lilly store, said. People who love Lilly are passionate about it. A Lilly ambassador Lane stops in the Park Avenue store at least once a week, some times four, to check out the new merchandise and to just visit her Lilly family. Gardner has known her for 16 years, and said whenev er a new shipment comes in, Lane is happy to stop by and unpack boxes with her to get a glimpse of the new styles and individually artist-made patterns. When shes in the store, Lanes self-proclaimed Lilly ambassa dor title she even has business cards kicks in. Shes quick to show off a new print she loves to a shopper, or to tell someone they look wonderful in the little sun dress theyre trying on. Her love and friendliness gets her mistaken for an employee all the time, and she plays along.

Park Ave. LILLY | C ONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 Festivals opening night in April, Renee is struggling with drug ad diction and self-harm. It follows her as music, friends and a drive to live help her triumph over it all. sound telling the story, Wat ters said. Its much more subtle, but its much more powerful in a way. All throughout the beginning alienated from everyone. The music is sparse and quiet, sad. At back in touch with her life before drugs. Shes with friends, and the music brings them together again. The moment feels so victorious; the layers of sound feel so real. And that wasnt easy, Or lowski said. More than 70 people were gathered to create that atmo sphere of sound. Actors, students, faculty members and volunteers stood together in Full Sails dub bing stage, which was turned into a massive karaoke room. With song, streaming the words across a movie-theater-sized screen, they all sang together. That was lay ered on top of a CD track of the song, along with painstakingly chosen sound effect claps that matched exactly to the already of the actors. Orlowski describes sound mixing like a giant problem in a movie that he loves to solve. You feel the story come alive, he said. Its a struggle, but its so rewarding. Its all about the little details when it comes to sound, but they can make a story intriguing or distracting. They propel the story forward and add atmosphere, emotion and drama without be ing noticed all the time, and thats what its all about, he said. I never want the sound to take away from the story, Orlowski said. Creating worlds C.A. Barrow, the 2011 Full Sail valedictorian, can relate with his experience as production de signer for the short Men of this Life, which he won a Crystal Reel Award for Best Art Director/ Set Design for a Short Film. Bar row said he loves the clues that a characters environment can give. Barrow created surroundings s by poring over design books of the times. At one set while they walk right through decades. His crowning achievement was a study room that much of the ac tion takes place in. Deep cherry wood envelops the characters in darkness, setting the serious tone of the scenes. Youre creating this world for them to get lost in if the audi ence questions where they are for a moment it kind of breaks that world, Barrow said. Its just about keeping the audience be lieving that what theyre watch ing is real. Creating worlds is what Full Sail is all about, Watters said. She loves being a part of making stu Its all about the vision, its about innovation and pushing the envelope on our art forms, she said. Its a great place to grow as an artist you just have to bring your story. Theres not anything that gets in the way of that process here, Orlowski said. working with loan sharks or sell ing their bodies to put food on the table. Its a harsh reality that Wir gau says shes seen and will never forget. There are slums built on sewers, and her meetings with po tential craftsmen leaders are often conducted in huts. She hopes that after someone buys a scarf from her online, theyll think about what theyre supporting. Each of the items sold on their site comes with a card that tells that crafts mans story. [I want people] to realize that there is more, that this is real, Wirgau said. And for people to feel like they can make a differ ence. Shes done that with the people who work with her at Market Col ors, who are all volunteers. Shes a compassionate leader with a dis tinct vision, and she inspires pas sion for her cause in whomever she meets, her father said. Robyn Batts, a Market Colors intern and friend of Wirgaus, said its hard not to get excited about their work when shes around. Her passion is very evident, Batts said. Her heart behind it is just very humble. Wirgau sees the future with Market Colors helping many more craftsmen, and partnering with them forever. Africa, she said, has impacted her life in ways she never imagined. Theres life before Africa, and life after Africa, Wirgau said. My hearts been so changed.

Oviedo and Hagertys boys bas ketball teams are closing in fast on district tournaments with a strong chance of each coming out the winners. After a showdown against Liberty at press time, the Lions (17-7, 4-2) are district tournament bound. But they wont have to go far, as they host the Class 7A, Dis trict 4 tournament starting with the game one tipoff at 6 p.m. Feb. 6. The Lions will likely face Lake Howell (9-15, 2-4) in the opening game of the tournament. Thats good and bad news for Oviedo, team faced Lake Howell, but won 78-68 in a rematch Jan. 25. In that same district the Win ter Springs Bears (7-16, 1-5) are in last, giving them an unlikely shot at a championship or change at a regional berth. Barring a wild upset by Win ter Springs over Evans, the Lions will likely face the district frontrunner Trojans (14-6, 5-1) in the championship game Friday, Feb. 8. Hagerty After an incredible run in the regular season, the Huskies (20-4, 11-1) are at the top of their Class 8A District 2 with only a game to play. Their high-energy play ing style has led to big scores in games, but thats hurt them at season they own the honor of having scored more points than any Class 8A team in the state. highest amount of points by op ponents. They take on Olympia at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 1. After that its on to the district tournament in Lake Mary Feb. 5, with the Huskies likely playing Lyman (7-17, 1-11) The UCF mens basketball team didnt take its overtime loss to East Carolina well. In just their second Conference USA game of the season, the Knights had a win under their belt and were seconds away from another one when the Pirates came back and then sank a three pointer at the buzzer. The Knights had a week to take in the sting of that loss. Then they got revenge. Houston had the fortune of facing the Knights Jan. 19 when they watched a sure win spiral into a loss. The Knights had held the lead in regulation for only a minute and a half. In overtime, they grabbed the lead immedi ately and never let go, the num bers 79-75 blazing on Houstons scoreboard. As usual center Keith Clanton and forward Isaiah Sykes split top scoring duties, with 22 and 19 points respectively, though four players made it into the double digits. Newcomer Calvin Newell had 15 points on the night. After that big win the Knights have gone on a tear, felling three straight C-USA opponents by wider margins. But the games are getting tougher for the Knights, who played the four worst teams games. The only team theyve lost to so far was also the best one theyd played yet. By the end of the week theyll dwelling teams in the conference, half of them on the road. But when they step back onto their home court on Feb. 6, theyll face a Southern Miss team thats gone 17-4 overall and is undefeated in conference play. That game tips off at 7 p.m. and could be the turn ing point of the Knights season.

Page 11 THIS WEEK in political history Feb. 3, 1950 Klaus Fuchs, a German-born British scientist who helped develop the atomic bomb, is arrested in Great Britain for passing top-secret information about the bomb to the Soviet Union. The arrest of Fuchs led authorities to several other individuals, including Julius and Ethel Rosenberg in the U.S. No commerce, no crime What everyone concerned [with Winter Springs drop in crime rate] fails to bring up to the public reader is the fact that the reason why Winter Springs has been able to keep the criminal activity low is due to the lack of business activity in the city. To the contrary, the mayor and his cohorts have been pushing hard to turn Winter Springs from a bedroom community almost free of crime into a business megapo lis that will automatically create a crime environment and will cause criminal activity to increase ten-fold. This is not my off-thewall statement, but an issue that has been corroborated by police departments and the FBI. Business increase brings about criminal activity increase. Ed Martinez, Winter Springs Other nations genuinely look to America as an example, a shining city upon a hill, as Massachu Winthrop famously put it. But they cannot understand what they often call Americas love affair with guns. In most European countries, private ownership of militarystyle assault weapons has long been banned, considered a threat to public safety and wholly un necessary to the protection of political liberty in a developed democracy. Gun-control issues have also been depoliticized, and fatalities from gun-related crimes are much lower. But in Connecticut, on the morning of Dec. 14, a mentally disturbed 20-year-old man shot his mother to death at the family home in the idyllic small town of Newtown. He then broke into nearby Sandy Hook Elementary School, killing the principal who heroically tried to stop him, even though she was only 5-foot 2-inches tall and unarmed members. Rampaging through the school grounds, the man murdered 20 6 or 7 years old. He then turned his weapons on himself, shoot ing himself through the head. A 10 mm handgun and a Sig Sauer 9 mm handgun were recovered at the scene. The gunman used an assault have been prohibited before the nations ban on some semi-auto matic weapons was allowed to expire eight years ago by mem bers of Congress who feared the power of the gun lobby. The law was signed by President Clinton. The slaughter of innocents at Sandy Hook was only the latest in a stream of senseless violence. It followed the killings at Col umbine High School in 1999 (12 killed) and the Virginia Tech mas sacre of 2007 (32 killed). It also came on the heels of more recent attacks on innocent civilians by deranged individuals in the 2011 wounding of Rep. Gabrielle Gif fords in Tucson, Ariz., (six killed), the 2012 Aurora, Colo., theater shooting (12 killed), the 2012 Sikh Temple shooting in Wisconsin (six killed), and other cases. Europeans understand that our Second Amendment little more than a collection of notes rather than a coherent or gram matically correct statement is much prized in this country. But, they cannot understand why it is so important to place the right to own a gun over basic public safety, especially in a country that has so many safeguards against the abuse of executive-branch power that its most recurrent feature is political gridlock. In the unlikely event that there were to be another revolution in this country, the Second Amend ment would be null and void in any case, since the Constitution would cease to exist in its current form and there would no longer gun. Instead, we would just as sert that right, assuming that we wanted to. We would not look to or need a piece of paper to codify our right to rebel. Unsophisticated European observers have referred to what they call Americas culture of death, but those who know more about the American po litical system still cannot under stand why we so often constrain and limit First Amendment rights the right to free speech, a free press and so on but are unwill ing to limit gun-ownership rights. Outsiders are right to question us on this. We call ourselves a civilized society. If that is so, then there has to be a way to stop the carnage, which threatens our basic Ameri can values as well as our image in the rest of the world. As with free speech, there has to be a proper balance. And in this case, that is between one per sons right to own a gun and an others right to be to be free from the destruction of life, liberty and property that occurs when we allow unrestricted gun rights and the spread of weapons whose only real use is the indiscriminate slaughter of other human beings. The tiny victims of Sandy Hook Elementary School now bear testimony to the fact that we no longer have such a balance in this country, and we will fail to honor their memory if we do not now re-establish it.

Houghton@ucf.edu Activities were plentiful around our community this past week end. There were events (races) at several schools, and the antique car, truck and police car show at the Mall. Also, the Sanlando Depression Glass Show came to the Sanford Civic Center. I have been going to that show for four years with friends, and then we shop on First Street and usually at the Willow Tree.

Time to get your tickets now! A thought I dont know what the big deal is about old age. Old people who shine from inside look 10 to 20 years younger. Dolly Parton in Ladies Home Journal To be honest, onions have never been a favorite of mine. My least preferred pizza topping is big chunks of them. I can tolerate deep fried onion rings only if there is more deep and fried than onion. My wife is even welcome to cherry-pick my restaurant sal ads for easily nabbed pieces. I respect onions, just as I respect classical music. But no other person can lecture me that in my heart of hearts, I actually like classical music. Just because I have a college degree (B.A. from Rollins College, Class of ) does not mean I should or do like any number of classics. And as a farmer, I dont have to savor every crop I could possibly grow. This is not to say I do not consume onions. Diced, sauted, simmered, bread ed, combined, and sauced are all acceptable ways to cook the presumptive dominance of onions into most recipes. Every one of my soup concoctions will be hiding some onion. Pasta night at my home stead usually involves doctoring up the bottled tomato sauce with tyrs from the garden. My recom mended formula for a mess-ogreens starts with onions in the cast iron skillet. or green onions can always be found growing in my garden. And I mean always, even in our Florida summer. After the Christmas freeze of 1989, my only crop harvestable for sale at the Winter Park Farmers Market was with my persnickety tastes, and of course scallions nutritive value cannot be debated. Using hands-on intensive methods in our gardens, we can grow four times the edible weight of scal lions than a farmer can raising The variety of scallion from Johnnys Selected Seeds, named Guardsman, has given me an as tounding success rate. I liberally broadcast the seeds on the surface of a container of potting soil and cover them with a quarter inch of more soil. Sprouts appear in To plant the seedlings into the earth, pull a furrow into the garden soil, add some compost, separate the mass of sprouts, prune off all but an inch of roots, and gingerly set the small scal lions into the ground 2 inches apart, up to 1 inch deep. Harvest can begin in just a few weeks. You can trim some tops with scis sors or loosen the soil to pull the whole scallion. As with most alliums, be sure to share with everyone you plan to kiss.
