Page 8 HEALT H Y LIVING Standardized tests are the boogeymen of high school and middle school testing. The SAT and ACT are known for being notoriously difficult, yet theyre necessary for a strong college application. Your child can be in timidated when facing these stressful exams, and you may feel a little lost in how to help them. However, with some knowledge and preparation, youll find that these tests arent quite so scary. First off, you may wonder if your child needs to take both tests. While there is no clear-cut answer on which test you should take if only one is an option, there are a few differences that can guide the decision. The SAT is considered slightly harder than the ACT, with a focus on critical thinking; students strong in reading and writing tend to score well. The ACT claims to be more straightforward, test ing a students grasp of high school curricu lum, and tends to be easier for students who show a preference for math and science. Ultimately, the choice boils down to your childs unique skills, as well as the college or university theyre applying to. While most schools accept both scores, some may show a preference for one over the other, or accept only one. If a university claims to not use test scores for acceptance, they likely will still look at them for financial aid purposes. A student who has taken both tests does have an edge when sending out scores to a diverse range of universities, but with a little research you can make a single set of test scores go a long way. These exams are difficult to study for, with tricky questions about several subjects, but it is by no means impossible. There are a good number of test prep programs available, and some cost-free options as well. The College Board and ACT websites offer practice ques tions, and you can always rent a test prep book from your local library. There are also several practical ways you can help your student feel prepared. Stress proper sleep before the exam; if your child is not a morning person, schedule an exam in the afternoon. Preparing a light, balanced meal of protein, vegetables, and fruit will keep your child energized and focused during the long hours of test-taking; pack a snack for the breaks. Make sure your child remembers their glasses if they need them, and brings a sweater just in case. Most importantly, stress the need to study for these critical exams and not just wing them since colleges/uni versities use these scores as strong entrance criteria, theyre often the keys to a bright academic future and more. Here at The Tutoring Center, we offer our own comprehensive, one-to-one SAT/ACT Preparation Program tailored to the students needs, as well as free practice tests and consultations. This personalized program can typically increase students scores by 100 to 400 points. We strive to help ensure your student has a successful and relatively stress-free exam.

W h e n Its estimated that obesity-related health problems cost employers in the U.S. $73.1 billion a year. The Duke University study found that not only does it cost employers tons of cash for health costs in general, obesity-caused absenteeism and decreases in productivity encompass about half that number at $36.4 billion. that a few companies are trying to combat by implementing their own healthy initiatives. Some companies are paying lenges, run miles and eat their vegetables. Others are offering spa gift cards and paid days off, Jon Bergeron, a Winter Springs resident, owns Underground Fit on-site exercise classes and em ployee incentive plans that adapt started his company because of his passion for living a healthy lifestyle and sharing that with others, and because he saw an op portunity when he learned about the costs for employers associated with obesity. Thinking about those billions of dollars struck him. It boggles my mind some times, Bergeron said. He said that implementing ployers about $6 per employee in medical costs and absenteeism for every dollar invested, but that return on investment takes time up to three years. Corporate wellness is extremely new, but its catching on with companies fo cused on keeping their employees healthy and happy, rather than the end insurance savings. Bergeron consults with com panies to decide on what classes theyd like and heads there at any time of day, after work, during the lunch hour or for a quick break during the day, to give personal ized classes. Hell also work with the company to help plan a way ness, for example organizing chal lenges and incentives to get them to participate. He said working through increased productivity. A healthy employee is a more productive employee, Bergeron said. Your awareness is height ened and your brain activity is ac tually higher after you work out.

Their employees have de veloped friendships through the them. Their focus is to create an exciting, supportive and happy environment for their employees, rather than on the insurance cost demonstrating that they value a work and life balance has become a way to draw prospective em ployees, and health programs do that, Bergeron said. It builds camaraderie among our group, said Luisa Shellhorn, who co-created the program and is marketing coordinator for PCE. Theyve even seen side bets go ing on to lose weight, and in their peer pressure goes a long way when it comes to getting people around Park Avenue, said Debo rah Domroski, co-creator of their program.

They think their program will stick because of how their co-workers will feel by participating. You just feel much better when you live a healthy lifestyle, Shellhorn said. FITNESS | C ONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Want great skin at any age? 1. Get your beauty sleep Believe it or not, the expres sion get your beauty sleep actually has some science behind it. Lack of sleep is directly con nected to an increase in the stress hormone cortisol. Increased levels of cortisol create a rise in blood sugar, increase fat stor age around the waist and hips, and reduce the bodys ability to generate new skin cells. Consis tently depriving yourself of sleep can also make your complexion look sallow and can aggravate skin conditions including acne, eczema and psoriasis. 2. Wine down Im not trying to take away all your fun! You can still have a glass of something. Drink more than a cocktail a day? Your skin is going to suffer. Alcohol has been proven to dilate the blood vessels in the skin. Every time you have a drink, the blood vessels dilate and remain permanently dilated until they lose their tone. In addi tion, alcohol can worsen certain skin conditions including acne and rosacea and has been found to deplete the body of vitamin A, an important anti-oxidant. 3. Stop smoking Not only does smoking cause cancer and bad breath, it also destroys collagen and elastin and decreases levels of estrogen addition, every decade of smok ing results in a perceived extra 2.5 years of age, according to research published in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. 4. Cut the junk A study in the Journal of the American Academy of Derma tology found that people who replaced processed carbohydrates with high-protein foods and whole grains broke out less. The reason? High-glycemic foods cause your blood sugar to rise, triggering a surge of insulin. Insulin stimulates oil-producing hormones called androgens, which cause breakouts. Cut the junk, and you could see an improvement in acne in about six weeks. Instead, opt for sensible snacks like raw nuts. The healthy fats found in nuts provide nutri ents for the hair, skin and nails, and help sustain metabolism. 5. Keep moving Along with lifting your mood, to the skin, causing a healthylooking glow. Both immediately and over time, exercise has been shown to decrease stress, which can result in better skin. A quick days a week will go a long way in promoting healthy skin and a healthy lifestyle. 6. Stay hydrated Water is the most critical nutrient we can give our bodies. In fact, our bodies are comprised of two-thirds water and lose an average of 2.5 liters of water daily. In order to stay hydrated, it is necessary to replenish what is lost at a minimum each day. Drinking lots of water not only hydrates the skin, but also helps chemicals that cause aging. Dr. Dimitry Palceski is a board certied dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon.

Brian Thomas 110 Geneva Drive, Oviedo, Florida(Across From Ace Hardware) THOMAS PRODUCE three overtime wins in four games ended in tears of joy Saturday night, as the Oviedo Lions hoist ed the championship trophy on Florida high school soccers big gest stage. A season after not even making it into the postseason, they won it all in dramatic fash ion, eliminating Miami Lourdes 1-0 in a triple overtime shootout at the state championship Feb. 9. This team never gives up, defender Mariah Mattingly said. goal sailing into the net to put the game away. For some members of the Li ons squad, this was oddly famil iar. Two seasons ago the Lions did the exact same thing, win the playoffs in overtime, with the state title win coming down to one penalty kick. Oviedos Em ily Kobryn played as a substitute in that game. Last Saturday night she scored the shootout goal that gave her team the lead. Seconds later, the Lions had another cham pionship with a 5-3 shootout win. That nail-biter on the pitch at Melbournes Tom McIntyre Sta dium was just one of many theyd taken on an improbable road trip to the state title this season, as the lady Lions won seven of eight playoff games away from home. It had been a long journey with games that started as blowout wins but that became increasingly close as the Lions rose through the playoffs. They defeated the Lake How ell Silver Hawks 8-1 and Seminole High School Fighting Noles 5-1 on the road in district play. The game against the Silver Hawks was Oviedos highest offensive output of the playoffs, which included six nals to the No. 1 team in the state and cross-town rival, Hagerty, slightly derailed Oviedo and was the turning point that Head Coach Scott Waisanen said compelled his team to want to play harder. A 3-1 win at Winter Park set up a regional round rematch against Hagerty. The Lions would go down 1-0 only ten minutes into the game. Oviedo stayed close, two teams would head to the sec ond half tied an improvement on their previous two meetings, when Oviedo went into halftime down to the Huskies. The Huskies had a couple of balls bounce off the post in the sec ond half that allowed Oviedo to hang around. Both teams would hold each other scoreless sending the game into overtime. Oviedos the Hagerty hump by scoring and ending the Huskies season. After a road win against Fletcher, the Lions would win 2-1 round against East Lake. Oviedos dramatic win put them in the state championship to face the Lourdes Bobcats, who came in to the game with a 20-1 record. On a chilly and slightly windy late afternoon, the Lions would once again be in a back and forth battle. Oviedo had a close call as Lourdes almost sailed one through the goal with three min thanks to the outstretched arms of sophomore goalkeeper Reagan saved the lady Lions from facing a half ended tied at 0. Lourdes would waste little time in the second half, getting attempts, Funaro would continu ously deny the Bobcats. The Lions pressed the action late in the game with several shots, but nothing managed to touch the back of the net, includ ing a dramatic corner kick as time expired. as the game would go in to not one overtime, but two. Both teams re fused to let the other score, send ing the game into penalty kicks. Going out there I knew just save one, save one, said a smil ing Funaro. Just get your hands on one of them. Thats exactly what she did, with another huge save on dos senior defender, Mariah Mat tingly, closed the deal with her right foot, as the Lions made all ning 5-3. The wave of emotion from the Oviedo players could be felt in the stands and the Lions supporters echoed that excitement right back braced each other in excitement. It was just amazing, Mat tingly said.

Page 11 THIS WEEK in political history Feb. 16, 1959 Fidel Castro is sworn in as prime minister of Cuba after leading a guerrilla campaign that forced right-wing dictator Fulgencio Batista into exile. The United States initially recognized the new Cuban dictator, but withdrew its support after Castro nationalized U.S. assets on the island. Touring the city lately I have no ticed Im seeing hardly any chick ens or roosters; where did they go? None around the Townhouse, or Nelsons Hardware, or across Broadway? Let me know where they disappeared. The chickens are part of our town. Now the sand cranes are all around. Last week as I was parking my car to walk in the mall, as I do each morning around 8:30, I noticed in the grassy area near the old Bed, Bath & Beyond entrance 12 cranes. On Feb. 2, the Farmers Market had three in the parking lot area chatting away, sound ing like cats. Just wondering: Are the sand cranes taking over from the roosters and chickens? I also havent seen any peacocks or chickens around the Memorial Building. It is a mystery. The Father-Daughter Dance is this Friday, Feb. 15, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Riverside Park, located at 1600 Riverside Blvd. in Oviedo. The cost is $20 for a father and daughter pair.

Please contact Deed Fluhr at 407-366-9084 or I do hope you had a nice Val entines celebration this year. A thought: Organizing is what you do before you do some thing, so that when you do it, its not all mixed up. A.A. Milne Intuition works in strange and mysterious ways. It is that little voice lurking, sometimes drowned out, by the external chaos or internal static occluding our minds. Easily perceived in hindsight, that feeling of what should be done is frequently overridden by the march of routine pro cesses already in motion. We do not get to play with our instincts very often. This can be manifest in our desire to grow just a bit of our own food. Growing a few simple crops, and abiding by the claim to eat fresh from our gardens, is seeded in the back of all of our minds. Our eating habits, many times leading to questionable outcomes, need to be questioned. Pondering what sustenance we put into our bodies can lead to clarity of choice. I am heart ened when guests to my garden naturally trend towards good decisions on what is best to eat. Concurrently, I am often disap pointed when it is pronounced that high hopes are dashed be cause of a lack of growing space or functional knowledge. Keep it simple, sweetie; grow for the green leaf, not the penultimate fruit, tuber or seed production. Garlic chive (Al lium tuberosum) is a perennial herb that is merely trimmed, not pulled from the soil. Grown in any sized container using off the shelf potting soil, garlic chives will survive our summer weather provided some shade in the afternoon and our winters with a beach towel as cover for frost protection. Drought toler ant, they will still be waiting for you after the neglect of a weeks vacation. Everyone loves basil (Ocimum basilicum). Starting with annual plants available in many grocery store produce sections, basil is bottled tomato sauce, canned soup or boxed pasta. Pinching leaves encourages even more production. Basils tender growth lends itself to summer prolif eration, and a stash for winter is easily frozen for later use. French sorrel (Rumex acetosa) is a very robust plant, but the leaves are easily damaged during available in the retail distribution channels. Its tangy surprise leads sauces and soups. I utilize sorrel for hand-to-mouth grazing, con veniently abating hunger pangs until the next work break. Any downtown condo bal cony or heavily shaded suburban greater food production facility than doing nothing at all. And think of the self-esteem and brag ging rights when claims of being even partially food independent can be proffered. It does not take much to get started.

Rick Scott, Seminole County Chairman Bob Dallari and Lake Mary Mayor David Mealor announced the establish ment of a Verizon customer ser vice center. It promises to employ 750 people new employees and existing Verizon employees who will be moving to Central Florida. This is important to us, in at least two ways. These new jobs just around the corner from Win ter Springs will bring in people, some of whom will want to live in our city. They will help our real estate market and patronize our businesses. Secondly, Verizon is telling the world that Seminole County is a place to establish or grow your business. With prime property here in Winter Springs, we will capture some of that growth. This is the kind of economic development we seek for Winter Springs: clean commercial build ings that offer high-wage jobs. The trickle-down (thank you, President Reagan, Jack Kemp and Art Laffer) effect will be for better housing values, more local recreation opportunities, and lower taxes. It doesnt take much in the way of taxes to run your city, but we do need a little. We are laying the groundwork for a company not unlike Verizon to help offset our much-too-domi nant residential tax base. The 36th annual Scottish Highland Games were held on Jan. 19 and 20 at Central Winds Park, and an estimated 35,000 people attended this annual celebration of Scottish culture and heritage. Special guest Caitlyn Boyd, from Scotland, was the winner of the Brave look alike contest and was there to celebrate at the kids games with her bow and arrow. Be sure to save the date for next years event on Jan. 18 and 19 at Central Winds Park.

Page 8 HEALTh H Y L LIVING Standardized tests are the boogeymen of high school and middle school testing. The SAT and ACT are known for being notoriously difficult, yet theyre necessary for a strong college application. Your child can be in timidated when facing these stressful exams, and you may feel a little lost in how to help them. However, with some knowledge and preparation, youll find that these tests arent quite so scary. First off, you may wonder if your child needs to take both tests. While there is no clear-cut answer on which test you should take if only one is an option, there are a few differences that can guide the decision. The SAT is considered slightly harder than the ACT, with a focus on critical thinking; students strong in reading and writing tend to score well. The ACT claims to be more straightforward, test ing a students grasp of high school curricu lum, and tends to be easier for students who show a preference for math and science. Ultimately, the choice boils down to your childs unique skills, as well as the college or university theyre applying to. While most schools accept both scores, some may show a preference for one over the other, or accept only one. If a university claims to not use test scores for acceptance, they likely will still look at them for financial aid purposes. A student who has taken both tests does have an edge when sending out scores to a diverse range of universities, but with a little research you can make a single set of test scores go a long way. These exams are difficult to study for, with tricky questions about several subjects, but it is by no means impossible. There are a good number of test prep programs available, and some cost-free options as well. The College Board and ACT websites offer practice ques tions, and you can always rent a test prep book from your local library. There are also several practical ways you can help your student feel prepared. Stress proper sleep before the exam; if your child is not a morning person, schedule an exam in the afternoon. Preparing a light, balanced meal of protein, vegetables, and fruit will keep your child energized and focused during the long hours of test-taking; pack a snack for the breaks. Make sure your child remembers their glasses if they need them, and brings a sweater just in case. Most importantly, stress the need to study for these critical exams and not just wing them since colleges/uni versities use these scores as strong entrance criteria, theyre often the keys to a bright academic future and more. Here at The Tutoring Center, we offer our own comprehensive, one-to-one SAT/ACT Preparation Program tailored to the students needs, as well as free practice tests and consultations. This personalized program can typically increase students scores by 100 to 400 points. We strive to help ensure your student has a successful and relatively stress-free exam.

W h e n Its estimated that obesity-related health problems cost employers in the U.S. $73.1 billion a year. The Duke University study found that not only does it cost employers tons of cash for health costs in general, obesity-caused absenteeism and decreases in productivity encompass about half that number at $36.4 billion. that a few companies are trying to combat by implementing their own healthy initiatives. Some companies are paying lenges, run miles and eat their vegetables. Others are offering spa gift cards and paid days off, Jon Bergeron, a Winter Springs resident, owns Underground Fit on-site exercise classes and employee incentive plans that adapt started his company because of his passion for living a healthy lifestyle and sharing that with others, and because he saw an op portunity when he learned about the costs for employers associated with obesity. Thinking about those billions of dollars struck him. It boggles my mind some times, Bergeron said. He said that implementing ployers about $6 per employee in medical costs and absenteeism for every dollar invested, but that return on investment takes time up to three years. Corporate wellness is extremely new, but its catching on with companies focused on keeping their employees healthy and happy, rather than the end insurance savings. Bergeron consults with com panies to decide on what classes theyd like and heads there at any time of day, after work, during the lunch hour or for a quick break during the day, to give personalized classes. Hell also work with the company to help plan a way ness, for example organizing chal lenges and incentives to get them to participate. He said working through increased productivity.

Their employees have de veloped friendships through the them. Their focus is to create an exciting, supportive and happy environment for their employees, rather than on the insurance cost demonstrating that they value a work and life balance has become a way to draw prospective employees, and health programs do that, Bergeron said.

FITNESS | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8Want great skin at any age? 1. Get your beauty sleepBelieve it or not, the expres sion get your beauty sleep actually has some science behind it. Lack of sleep is directly connected to an increase in the stress hormone cortisol. Increased levels of cortisol create a rise in blood sugar, increase fat stor age around the waist and hips, and reduce the bodys ability to generate new skin cells. Consistently depriving yourself of sleep can also make your complexion look sallow and can aggravate skin conditions including acne, eczema and psoriasis. 2. Wine downIm not trying to take away all your fun! You can still have a glass of something. Drink more than a cocktail a day? Your skin is going to suffer. Alcohol has been proven to dilate the blood vessels in the skin. Every time you have a drink, the blood vessels dilate and remain permanently dilated until they lose their tone. In addition, alcohol can worsen certain skin conditions including acne and rosacea and has been found to deplete the body of vitamin A, an important anti-oxidant. 3. Stop smoking Not only does smoking cause cancer and bad breath, it also destroys collagen and elastin and decreases levels of estrogen addition, every decade of smok ing results in a perceived extra 2.5 years of age, according to research published in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.4. Cut the junkA study in the Journal of the American Academy of Derma tology found that people who replaced processed carbohydrates with high-protein foods and whole grains broke out less. The reason? High-glycemic foods cause your blood sugar to rise, triggering a surge of insulin. Insulin stimulates oil-producing hormones called androgens, which cause breakouts. Cut the junk, and you could see an improvement in acne in about six weeks. Instead, opt for sensible snacks like raw nuts. The healthy fats found in nuts provide nutrients for the hair, skin and nails, and help sustain metabolism.5. Keep movingAlong with lifting your mood, to the skin, causing a healthylooking glow. Both immediately and over time, exercise has been shown to decrease stress, which can result in better skin. A quick days a week will go a long way in promoting healthy skin and a healthy lifestyle. 6. Stay hydratedWater is the most critical nutrient we can give our bodies. In fact, our bodies are comprised of two-thirds water and lose an average of 2.5 liters of water daily. In order to stay hydrated, it is necessary to replenish what is lost at a minimum each day. Drinking lots of water not only hydrates the skin, but also helps chemicals that cause aging. Dr. Dimitry Palceski is a board certied dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon.

A season after not even making it into the postseason, they won it all in dramatic fash ion, eliminating Miami Lourdes 1-0 in a triple overtime shootout at the state championship Feb. 9. This team never gives up, defender Mariah Mattingly said. goal sailing into the net to put the game away. For some members of the Lions squad, this was oddly familiar. Two seasons ago the Lions did the exact same thing, win the playoffs in overtime, with the state title win coming down to one penalty kick. Oviedos Emily Kobryn played as a substitute in that game. Last Saturday night she scored the shootout goal that gave her team the lead. Seconds later, the Lions had another cham pionship with a 5-3 shootout win. That nail-biter on the pitch at Melbournes Tom McIntyre Stadium was just one of many theyd taken on an improbable road trip to the state title this season, as the lady Lions won seven of eight playoff games away from home. It had been a long journey with games that started as blowout wins but that became increasingly close as the Lions rose through the playoffs. They defeated the Lake How ell Silver Hawks 8-1 and Seminole High School Fighting Noles 5-1 on the road in district play. The game against the Silver Hawks was Oviedos highest offensive output of the playoffs, which included six nals to the No. 1 team in the state and cross-town rival, Hagerty, slightly derailed Oviedo and was the turning point that Head Coach Scott Waisanen said compelled his team to want to play harder. A 3-1 win at Winter Park set up a regional round rematch against Hagerty. The Lions would go down 1-0 only ten minutes into the game. Oviedo stayed close, two teams would head to the second half tied an improvement on their previous two meetings, when Oviedo went into halftime down to the Huskies. The Huskies had a couple of balls bounce off the post in the second half that allowed Oviedo to hang around. Both teams would hold each other scoreless sending the game into overtime. Oviedos the Hagerty hump by scoring and ending the Huskies season. After a road win against Fletcher, the Lions would win 2-1 round against East Lake. Oviedos dramatic win put them in the state championship to face the Lourdes Bobcats, who came in to the game with a 20-1 record. On a chilly and slightly windy late afternoon, the Lions would once again be in a back and forth battle. Oviedo had a close call as Lourdes almost sailed one through the goal with three min thanks to the outstretched arms of sophomore goalkeeper Reagan saved the lady Lions from facing a half ended tied at 0. Lourdes would waste little time in the second half, getting attempts, Funaro would continu ously deny the Bobcats. The Lions pressed the action late in the game with several shots, but nothing managed to touch the back of the net, includ ing a dramatic corner kick as time expired. as the game would go in to not one overtime, but two. Both teams re fused to let the other score, send ing the game into penalty kicks. Going out there I knew just save one, save one, said a smil ing Funaro. Just get your hands on one of them. Thats exactly what she did, with another huge save on dos senior defender, Mariah Mattingly, closed the deal with her right foot, as the Lions made all ning 5-3. The wave of emotion from the Oviedo players could be felt in the stands and the Lions supporters echoed that excitement right back braced each other in excitement.

The United States initially recognized the new Cuban dictator, but withdrew its support after Castro nationalized U.S. assets on the island.Touring the city lately I have no ticed Im seeing hardly any chickens or roosters; where did they go? None around the Townhouse, or Nelsons Hardware, or across Broadway? Let me know where they disappeared. The chickens are part of our town. Now the sand cranes are all around. Last week as I was parking my car to walk in the mall, as I do each morning around 8:30, I noticed in the grassy area near the old Bed, Bath & Beyond entrance 12 cranes. On Feb. 2, the Farmers Market had three in the parking lot area chatting away, sound ing like cats. Just wondering: Are the sand cranes taking over from the roosters and chickens? I also havent seen any peacocks or chickens around the Memorial Building. It is a mystery.

A thought: Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, its not all mixed up. A.A. Milne Intuition works in strange and mysterious ways. It is that little voice lurking, sometimes drowned out, by the external chaos or internal static occluding our minds. Easily perceived in hindsight, that feeling of what should be done is frequently overridden by the march of routine pro cesses already in motion. We do not get to play with our instincts very often. This can be manifest in our desire to grow just a bit of our own food. Growing a few simple crops, and abiding by the claim to eat fresh from our gardens, is seeded in the back of all of our minds. Our eating habits, many times leading to questionable outcomes, need to be questioned. Pondering what sustenance we put into our bodies can lead to clarity of choice. I am heartened when guests to my garden naturally trend towards good decisions on what is best to eat. Concurrently, I am often disappointed when it is pronounced that high hopes are dashed be cause of a lack of growing space or functional knowledge. Keep it simple, sweetie; grow for the green leaf, not the penultimate fruit, tuber or seed production. Garlic chive (Allium tuberosum) is a perennial herb that is merely trimmed, not pulled from the soil. Grown in any sized container using off the shelf potting soil, garlic chives will survive our summer weather provided some shade in the afternoon and our winters with a beach towel as cover for frost protection. Drought toler ant, they will still be waiting for you after the neglect of a weeks vacation. Everyone loves basil (Ocimum basilicum). Starting with annual plants available in many grocery store produce sections, basil is bottled tomato sauce, canned soup or boxed pasta. Pinching leaves encourages even more production. Basils tender growth lends itself to summer proliferation, and a stash for winter is easily frozen for later use. French sorrel (Rumex acetosa) is a very robust plant, but the leaves are easily damaged during available in the retail distribution channels. Its tangy surprise leads sauces and soups. I utilize sorrel for hand-to-mouth grazing, conveniently abating hunger pangs until the next work break. Any downtown condo balcony or heavily shaded suburban greater food production facility than doing nothing at all. And think of the self-esteem and bragging rights when claims of being even partially food independent can be proffered. It does not take much to get started.

Rick Scott, Seminole County Chairman Bob Dallari and Lake Mary Mayor David Mealor announced the establishment of a Verizon customer ser vice center. It promises to employ 750 people new employees and existing Verizon employees who will be moving to Central Florida. This is important to us, in at least two ways. These new jobs just around the corner from Winter Springs will bring in people, some of whom will want to live in our city. They will help our real estate market and patronize our businesses. Secondly, Verizon is telling the world that Seminole County is a place to establish or grow your business. With prime property here in Winter Springs, we will capture some of that growth. This is the kind of economic development we seek for Winter Springs: clean commercial build ings that offer high-wage jobs. The trickle-down (thank you, President Reagan, Jack Kemp and Art Laffer) effect will be for better housing values, more local recreation opportunities, and lower taxes. It doesnt take much in the way of taxes to run your city, but we do need a little. We are laying the groundwork for a company not unlike Verizon to help offset our much-too-domi nant residential tax base.
