JOE: RETALIATION The University of Central Flori da Business Incubation Program is offering veterans and active military members the chance to learn how to start their own busi nesses from a successfully prov en program. The University of Central Florida Business Incubation Pro gram (UCFBIP) is the host to the Central Florida pilot program of the Kauffman FastTrac NewVen ture Veteran Entrepreneur course. The program has been taught on military bases around the country with 300 participants so far. The 30 hour class, which is open to both veterans and active military members, costs $100 and will teach business and network ing skills, give attendees access to their own military business owner advisory board for advice and support, and will connect them to other military business resources in the area. The Incubation Program is designed to create an environ ment for businesses to be suc Just before 11:30 a.m. on Thurs days, theres a changing of the classroom at Carillon Elementa ry in Oviedo. Mrs. Miles moves out for a planning period, and Deputy Adam Brewster moves in. Forgoing this weeks P.E. with owl-embellished work books ready for a different kind of lesson from the uniformed man in charge. Todays lesson is about re sisting gangs, Brewster says to the room of 10-year-olds. But be fore the new lesson can begin, he asks them to recap what theyve already learned in his previous weeks workshops. What does Otis the name of the owl on each of the stu dents Focus on Safety program packet stand for? Hands shoot up as a chorus of voices rings out: Obey Teachers In Schools, they say. What are the gateway drugs? Each hand has a different an swer, from marijuana to inhal ants to alcohol. Inside drugs? Crystal meth and cocaine, the kids say. Knowing these answers, Brewster said, provides students vention of poor decisions in the future, and building positive relationships with law enforce ment in the present. The kids know whats right and wrong, they really do, so youre just giving them that push that theyre doing the right thing and hopefully that leads them down the right path when they get older, Brewster said. Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS) approved fund ing in February to help make that path a little smoother, vot ing to expand the 10-week Focus on Safety program being proto typed at Carillon to all 22 of the districts elementary schools.

He was sen tenced Wednesday afternoon to prison time plus a year of probation for funneling money from the party into Victory Strategies, a company he owned. You egregiously violated a po sition of trust, Judge Marc Lubet said in Orange County Courthouse room 6B, reported the Tampa Bay Times. As part of a plea deal that helped determine a far lower sentence than the 35 years he was facing, Greer was forced to pay the party $65,000 and drop a lawsuit in which he al leged the party owed him a six out of the party in early 2010.

We just want to give veterans the opportunity to make a good decision. Rafael Caamano, assistant di rector for the UCFBIP, said that the economy and job market is still in a rough state. After retir ing, many military members cant Their next option is to create their own job by starting a business, which is a popular choice. Veter ans own nine percent of business in the United States, and are 45 percent more likely to become an entrepreneur compared to people with no active-duty military expe rience, according to 2011 research from the U.S. Small Business Ad Course objectives an decide if their idea is feasible, and if they have the motivation, time and character it takes to start their own business. And thats what drew Orlan do veteran Christian Betancourt to the program. Because of his healthcare background he was a combat medic in the Navy and served for 12 years before retiring he always thought about start ing his own daytime care-giving center for adults. But, hes never been sure if he could actually do it. He hopes to be able to make a more informed decision after the class. right decisions, he said. They didnt provide any false expecta tions thats what I really want. The class will then teach the veterans how to make their busi ness idea happen, from the basic dience and the money to actually start it up. Veteran success Gabe Ruiz, president of Advanced IT Concepts in Orlando and a re tired Army colonel, said his suc cess is proof of the value of the business assistance programs of fered by UCF. While his company was too large to participate in the the resources at the Small Busi ness Development Center at UCF. Hes grown his revenue 100 percent to $5 million last year, and tripled in size since utilizing the advice he got from his advi sor there. Ruiz plans to be on the advisory board for the UCFBIPs new veteran program, giving back after all the help hes received. The program brings decades of experiences, expertise and les sons learned that would take en tire lifetimes to be learned, that are available to them on day one, Ruiz said. Veterans make good entrepreneurs Its not always easy to translate military experience into civilian work atmospheres, Ruiz said, but the qualities military members have are extremely useful as a business owner. Entrepreneurship is almost automatic, he said. Its an atti tude toward serving, its an atti tude toward perfection. Veterans thrive under pres sure, are open to taking risks and can adapt quickly. Civilians rarely experience the level of stress on the job military members have. Military members have to face that on a daily basis, theyve gone to war, Betancourt said. Theres really no room for error and there are lives on the line. They understand missions, they understand objectives, Caa mano said. They have tendency to stay on target. But they dont always realize that those skills are what make a great entrepreneur, so thats why the UCFBIP veteran course is im portant to help them identify their strengths and take the next step. Hogan and Caamano hope that they can help a few veterans make the decision to start their own business after taking the class, and then move on to their addi tional BIP courses. Theyre work ing on garnering more sponsors to help veterans with registration fees once they see how successful this current program is. Betancourt said he cant wait to see where this opportunity will take him. I dont aspire to be 55 and waiting for my paycheck, he said. I want to set the pace for my familys future.

Well have Focus, but obvi ously everyone is concerned with safety after Sandy Hook, so then weve got extra security here on campus as well, so its two fold, Canaday said. The move to put more cops on campus following the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in December has spread across the country to Central Florida. Principal AnaLynn Jones at Carillon said having the Focus program and Deputy Brewster involved on campus gives her school the best of both worlds: increased police presence, and an added educational element. I think its an appropriate use of our resources; were using the Sheriffs department and we have the presence on campus, but theyre also educating our chil dren and I think thats a really important piece to it, she said. Theyre not just standing at the front door guarding our school, but theyre actually involved in our school and get to know the families and the kids. And I think thats a much better relationship than just having someone sit in your parking lot. Brewster said the mix of the ded in the schools serving a dual purpose is what he feels will make Focus successful as it expands to the more schools next fall. Were trying to make a vested interest in the school itself. The school is a community within a community, and showing your presence there, the kids really respond to you, he said. If were going to be here we need to be productive, proactive and productive. We need to make sure that were doing some type of prevention with them cause any little bit helps.

Greer had risen to power by helping the election campaign of Gov. Charlie Crist and the Re publican Party, getting the role of chairman in 2006. Up to that point he had been an Oviedo city coun cilman and deputy mayor while running a company, Regulatory Compliance Services, that helped businesses keep out of trouble with the government by main taining compliance. cially take his job in Tallahassee in January of 2007, Greer took Oviedo Police Chief Charles Dra go with him. The two had become friends while Greer had been on the council. Drago was given a position as deputy secretary of the Florida Department of Business and Professional Relations. Greer led the party for more than 3 years before trouble began brewing in late 2009 amid rumors that the party was unhappy with fundraising and spending under Greers helm. In the meantime his wife, Lisa, continued to live in their home in a gated community in Oviedo. After his ouster in 2010, legal battles were waged both ways when the party alleged that Greer had funneled money ille gally into his own pockets, and Greer charged back that the party owed him more than $100,000 in back pay. Soon Drago returned to Oviedo and Crist lost his election bid for the U.S. Senate. Complet ing an unusual circle of political connections, Dragos wife, Cindy, successfully ran for a seat on the Oviedo city council in 2010. In 2012, she successfully defended that seat, just as Greers pros ecution was gathering evidence against him.

Across the room, mad scien tists in white lab coats help pintsized experimenters mix up gooey slime concoctions and swirl torna do-type waves in taped-together water bottles. On Saturday, March 23, kids who ventured to the grand open ing of the Mad Science Laboratory in the Oviedo Mall had the oppor tunity to experiment with all dif ferent types of mad science. Founded in 1993, Mad Science performs experiments and teach es kids through after-school pro grams, birthday parties and more. Kylie Koscoe, owner and chief mad scientist at Mad Science, has a mission to get kids interested and curious about science and how it plays a role in the world. Everything that we do is very hands-on, so the kids get to actu ally experience science through all their senses they get to touch stuff, sometimes smell stuff, taste stuff, Koscoe said. They actu ally get to do experiments on their own to get them excited about sci ence and learning. Koscoe said Mad Science helps encourage the importance of STEM Science, Technology, En gineering and Mathematics ca reers in todays society, and foster STEM curiosity in kids early, espe cially when it comes to girls. STEM is a big buzz word right now, and so its super important because obviously theres tons of medical careers out there and careers in engineering and math ematics, Koscoe said. And es pecially with girls, a lot of women and young girls are not going into the STEM careers, and so we are hoping we can get them excited enough about science at a young age that they kinda keep it go ing, so that by the time they get to college they think about STEM careers. To do that, Koscoe said, the programs at Mad Science work to supplement students thirst for science outside of school. We can take concepts they [students] learned in class and really let the kids have an inter active experience with it so that they can really understand the concepts that theyre learning in school, she said. Rana Mardini, who brought her science-loving daughter Ayah to Mad Sciences grand opening, said she believes in the impor tance of science in education. Its very important, very im portant, Mardini said. She said science helps kids look deeper into whats in front of them, and encourages them to look into whats beyond whats presented on the surface. Though Ayah is unsure of what kind of scientist to be, she said sci ence is really fun, and that she liked the experiments at Mad Sci ence. I like all of them, Ayah said. They all are fun, and theyre cool. what Koscoe hopes Mad Science can offer to kids in the commu nity. We want them at the end of a party or a show or a class to say Gosh, that was fun and Maybe I learned something, thats pretty awesome, she said. If we can get them learning without realiz ing theyre learning, thats always awesome.

Qubits inventor Mark Burgin ger had thought about the Qu bits design while in college as an architecture major, but until the economic downturn six years ago, had not ventured into the toy business. But with knowledge of his father-in-laws entrepreneur ial success and his wifes back ground in business, Mark and wife Lisa went ahead with the Qubits project. Weve always been in busi ness and we like working togeth er, so we thought that would be a good match, Lisa said. In December 2007, the Burgin gers went public with their toy in Oregon. They sold it in local stores and visited elementary schools, high schools and colleges to demonstrate it. Made out of a similar grade of polypropylene as plastic mixing bowls, Qubits allow individuals to connect and snap together four types of patented modular geom etry pieces two types of Qubits pieces, a bridge piece and a con nector piece that can be made into anything. It can take the abuse of bend ing, Mark said, demonstrating how a plate made of polypropyl when bent, rather than breaking. Mark, whose goal is one day to send Qubits into space, suggested use of Qubits in a high school sci ence class. This would work in a high school class, as far as a virus, said Burginger, who explained how a three-dimensional, triangulated sphere made of Qubits maintains the same shape as a virus. And its not just children who play with Qubits. Adults can also play with this toy, Lisa said, which allows for interaction be tween parents and their children. Its kind of a nice thing that adults can do this with [their] children, because they wont get bored with it either, Lisa said. With a second version of Qu bits which will include six dif ferent colors and have the small connector piece built in expect ed to be ready in approximately one month, Lyndsay Burginger, 21, acknowledged that Qubits is unlike any other toy. Theyre very unique, she prototype Qubits pieces. Ive never seen anything like this be fore.

It had been 11 years nearly to the day that he scored 100 points in one game against the New York Knicks still the NBA record. In his final game the Knicks got revenge, defeating Chamberlains Los Angeles Lakers in the 1973 finals. FUNDRAISER Fish Fry For the Church of the Good Shepherd Outreach Ministry DATE :Friday, April 5, 2013WHERE : Church of the Good Shepherd 331 Lake Avenue, Maitland Florida, 32751 407 644 5350 TIME : 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm PLACE: Parish Hall (follow signs for addl parking) The Knights had no trouble han dling UAB (9-14, 0-3) until some of their three-game series when they fought their way through a 10-10 stalemate to emerge the winners in a 12-10, 10-inning vic tory March 24. That win capped off a threegame sweep for the Knights (17-9, 3-0) to start Conference USA play with a bang. The win was the Knights sec ond straight comeback victory on the heels of bigger wins before C-USA play began this past week end. The extra-innings win was en gineered by freshman Bo Deckers two-run single, followed by a solo shot JoMarcos Woods sent soaring into the afternoon sky and over But it was a team effort for the Knights at the plate, as they bat ted .317 as a squad, with Bo Deck er again leading the way with a 2-for-5 performance and four RBI in the game. The Blazers were swinging for the fences much of the game, sending 14 balls deep into the mound trouble. Four UAB players had doubles in the game. Just a few games after pitch ing the game of his UCF career, Eric Skoglund made it nearly two innings in middle relief, largely holding off the Blazers at the plate. Despite giving up three earned runs in just nine batters Knights pitcher in the game, got reer save, Tyler Martin only need ed one inning to close it out. The Knights come home this weekend for three games, start ing with a 6:30 p.m. showdown Thursday against Southern Miss (9-14, 1-2), followed by a 6:30 p.m. game Friday and a 12:30 p.m. game Saturday. That will be the last time Knights fans will be able to see their team for more than two weeks, as the Knights embark on an eight-game road trip start ing April 2 at Florida.

Page 11 Floridas four seasons blend quite succinctly past each other until the obvious is upon us beyond any debate. With the celestial equinox just over, this weeks rain and cold snap should be the last we will see of these trekking fronts bringing notice able change. Any chance of frost and precipitation are now traded for baldly clear skies, progressively dry soil, and eventually summer temperatures. To grow both cool season crops and prepare the warm sea son for production before pound ing thunderstorms become the norm, strategy and infrastruc ture are necessary. Radishes, carrots, kale, lettuce, beets, and other winter crops eventually give out when temperatures consistently hit in the 90s. But to just till them under be cause the calendar says April would be giving up on weeks of productive (yet declining) harvest. In the meantime, tomatoes, peppers, beans and eggplant demand the space of lovingly prepared garden soil. At this time of year, as salad crops of lettuce, endive, parsley, and dill are planted, I concede they could be the last batch to hopefully make it to harvest. Will they require some form of shade to reach an edible size, extra pest control as the bugs become empowered, or an expanded weeding budget to overcome greenhouse spaces formally occupied by trays of cool sea son seedlings are replaced with increasingly larger pots for the setting little green fruits. Peppers snuck out in the last days of win ter and planted between rows of Asian mizuna greens will need to be protected during a few more nights of low 50-de gree temperatures. Weather only a gardener could love! My risk of planting bush beans in late January, which suffered through repeated bouts with frost blankets, evaded chilly conditions long enough to become established. As luck would have it, the batch started two weeks later were only just emerging from the soil when the next cold front bar reled through, freezing them in their tracks. We harvested green, purple and broad Romano snap beans this week, but the next crop will be another month in coming. I recently received an inquiry as to why lettuce always bolts to seed at this time of year, thus becoming sappy and bitter. As spring conditions become hot and dry, lettuce varieties show ing before they die out. By start ing transplants in the benevolent sanctuary of the greenhouse, well-fed seedlings should grow to a harvest size. Eat them before they expend their energies to reproduce, unless you plan to save seeds as a new gardening endeavor.
