A police officers White House tour with his daughter becomes a rescue mission when its invaded by a paramilitary force. Opening this week: WHITE HOUSE DOWN A memorial to Oviedo-area veter ans is moving closer, albeit slowly, to becoming a reality. But how big it will be and how it will be paid for remain to be seen. At the June 17 City Council meeting Fire Chief Lars White outlined exactly how far the project still had to go, start ing with a long list of names and revealing an uncomfortable secret along the way. Its called the Wall of Honor, long monolith, likely stone, and etched with the names of local soldiers who served in Americas wars. But who gets to go on the list? Thats not certain yet, White said. It was suggested to us that we dont put a lot of parameters on the names, he said. It should be the Oviedo area, not just Oviedo. Thats how Winter Springs han dled its memorial, allowing vet erans from the general area to be listed on their stone tribute. Teen pregnancy rates are declin ing in Central Florida, and edu cators at Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando said their programs are one reason for the decrease. The downward trend is a nationwide one, and since 2006 teen birth rates in Osceola, Semi nole and Brevard counties are down. Orange County shows the greatest success with a 35 per cent decrease. A 35 percent decrease in six years is monumental, said Jen na Tosh, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando (PPGO). Tosh said access to medically accurate information and sex education is the key to prevent ing teen pregnancy, and PPGO reaches more than 15,000 teens each year through programs in Orange County Public Schools and in their clinics, making a huge impact on the Central Flor ida community. Orange County is following the trend across Florida. The sun shine state has a high percentage of teen birth rates in 2010, it ranked 23 out of 50 states (with 1 being best, 50 the worst). But it has seen a 53 percent decline since 1991, ranking it in the top the country. In Orange County, the rate went from 42.9 births for every 1,000 teen girls aged 15 to 19 in 2006, to 27.7 in 2012. Tosh said the programs PPGO chooses to implement have al ready shown proven, positive outcomes with teens when used by other organizations. They pair abstinence teaching with educa tion about birth control and safe sex practices. And not only have birth rates gone down, but the 2010 Orange County High School Youth Risk Behavior Survey results show that since 2005, less teens are having sex and more are using birth control when they do. Its important to not only give teens access to education, but to link it to medical care as well, which PPGO offers to teens at a reduced rate, Tosh said. Its a place teens can feel safe asking for help. Its a place she felt comfortable going to as a young woman, along with her friends. It can be scary to take the step to protect yourself as a teen if you dont have a parent or caregiver to talk to, but PPGO is there, she said. Teens can rely on Planned Parenthood for professional, non-judgmental, quality care, Tosh said. We have one of the most compassionate staffs; we are dedicated to making sure young people have access to the tools to stay safe and healthy. A PPGO educators goal is to shape attitudes and beliefs about sex and teach teens ways to communicate with partners and friends so they dont feel pres sured into anything.

The Oviedo City Council has commissioned Orlandobased branding company Technetium to create a brand for the city, which will be used on business cards, stationery and on the light post banners across the city. We are in the process of making a lot of changes, Councilwoman Cindy Drago said. Oviedo on the Park is becoming a reality and we have an emergency room being built as we speak right now, so we have a lot of changes in Oviedo and we want a new logo to really identify with that and identify with who we are.

Ebony Section is a senior educator for the Safer Sex pro gram, and said she likes to call it girl talk, because shes helping young women just like herself. Theyre able to talk to an edu cator they trust, she said. Section remembers one teen mom with two children already, who came in for help. They got her on birth control, and instantly she saw a difference in her demeanor, her life was truly changed. She had taken control. They build that self advoca cy, Section said. Theres also an anonymous text line to get quick answers about sexual health, or how to make an appointment at PPGO. Teens can reach them on Facebook, too, where staff responds to posts and private messages. Social media is now an important resource. Its so important to reach teens where theyre at, said Cris tina Calandruccio, community education coordinator. Another way they do this is through two programs that spe and Latino teens, who have a much higher rate of teen preg nancy than Caucasian teens. Both base their teachings on addressing parts of their cultures that may put them at risk. We work with the unique needs of the teens, said Yarira Fe liciano, program manager for Cui date!, which reaches Latino teens. And the best way to help teens is to educate them before they start having sex, so they can feel empowered with the knowledge to make healthy choices. Just one bad decision can af fect the rest of their lives, just a one-time risk, Tosh said. But another question raised the eyebrows of Oviedo City Attorney Lonnie Groot, who asked whether dishonorably discharged soldiers would be allowed on the list. Deciphering who was dis charged dishonorably is tough to clarify in many cases, White said. In some cases it cant be done at all, leaving a soldier in limbo on whether his name will be allowed on a memorial. Allowing all sol diers takes away that gray area. I do think that before the next couple of weeks you need to re or taking it off of there, Mayor Dominic Persampiere said. That way we can send somebody a let ter that says yes youre eligible or no youre not and tell them why. But it would be very hard to tell someone no. The project is starting to ma terialize on paper in the form of concepts, as the city grapples with how to pay for a project whose cost is still up in the air and sub ject to speculation that it could cost anywhere between $10,000 and several hundred thousand dollars to complete. how the city could partner with local charities to raise funds for the project so that more people could be involved in its creation. Were running this as a city project, and were going to estab lish this as a city account, White said. We are the ones who are do ing this memorial. But he said that hell be con tacting local organizations to try to get as much involvement as possible. By handling it through the city, White said, the project organizers wouldnt be saddling just one civic group with the re sponsibility to get it done. I just want to be sure the guidelines [are] in place and this is the right way to set this up, Councilman Stephen Schenck said. Its part of an overall brand ing, said Bryan Cobb, Oviedos interim city manager. The city has never really pursued brand ing before. We have numerous depart ments that have their own symbol so to speak, so its trying to bring consistency in the look of the city and the brand of the city. In late May, Technetium pre and taglines before City Council. Samples ranged from a red and blue color scheme bearing a large O logo to a light blue design bearing the citys name in black with a stylized, white V. Councilman Stephen Schenck age that sums up Oviedos past, present and future. They gave us a bunch of great ideas, but its not an easy process, Schenck said. Youre trying to decide what represents Oviedo in terms of a picture, a saying and some colors that can pull the concept together. Were such a big family com munity now; you dont see that represented anywhere in that seal. So how can we get that across? The topic has also been raised about whether Oviedos wander into the new brand. The famil iar fowls have been the symbol for multiple community events, including the Oviedo Womans Clubs Great Day in the Country. That decision will fall mostly on Technetium, Drago said. We asked the company to use their imagination, Drago said. We all told them how we feel and what were looking for. If the While its uncertain whether the image of a chicken will appear may be represented in another way. One of the Technetium sam ples features a logo that resembles rays of sunshine, with each ray sporting a color pulled from the roosters tail feathers. The combination of reds and yellows appealed to the city coun cil, and they are considering it for Though the colors dont re background or the Oviedo High School Lions roaring orange, the city is looking for something new, Drago said. Schenck stressed that holding onto the citys history is impor tant to the Council, and will play We want to be emblematic of that weve grown while keeping true to our heritage or history, Schenck said. Weve become a family destination while still hav ing those elements and the phi losophy that weve had from the beginning. Council members are also still deciding on the citys tagline, which Schenck revealed will in volve family and the future. Though Technetium provided see more before they make a deci sion, Drago said. Unfortunately, what theyve shown us so far really hasnt brought the image that were try ing to go for, Drago said. Some of the color schemes are good, but not the logo. We really want a logo that takes from our rich history, including our traditions and the future, so were trying to combine that. Its a hard thing to tell some one this is what I want and have them put it on paper and show us, but were going to keep trying. Council members are currently discussing the logo and colors with members of the community, and Technetium will present new samples to the City Council with in the next two months.

Its September 2012, nearly a year deep into the Amazon jungle. Grosmans team was lucky to have a camera at all. Despite all the dangers of the rainforest falls, pirates, predators and an un forgiving river its the humidity that killed the other two cameras, working through a constant thin veil of vapor until they failed.

Grosman still remembers the broadcast half a year later. The throwback explorer had crossed more than 4,000 miles in his Amazon 5000 expedition, a trek through the harsh landscape of South America to inspire can cer patients around the world and raise money for research. A pirate attack had forced the team northeast toward Guyana, avoiding the Amazon River that had proved too dangerous. But the pirate attack had taken its toll on their supplies, 2,000 miles from the nearest Outdoor World. Grosman spread the word on line with his military computer, and eventually received a care School LLC. By March 20 10 months since the beginning of the expedition they reached the 4,430-mile mark, well within the borders of Guyana. Only 300 miles left. Grosman and company reached the blistering savanna plains south of Georgetown, scat tered with 10-foot termite mounds scavenged by roaming anteaters. The crew eventually reached Rockstone, where Grosman was reunited with former team mem bers Kyle Ver Steeg and Alex Her nandez, ready to join him for the last 100 miles. Ten days later, the expanded team found themselves wad ing through neck-deep swamps. Grosman knew that traveling with leeches would wear down around. Not too far away was the Es sequibo River. If the team could fashion another raft out of the local wood, they could avoid the swamp altogether. After tying together several logs and secur ing empty gas canisters along the sides, they had a raft that could barely keep six guys and 500 The team rode the raft down stream for 30 miles. They were able to dodge the swamp, but no body noticed early on when Kyle Ver Steeg broke his foot after trip ping between two of the logs. I didnt tell anybody, because I didnt want that to be an issue for the team, so I just walked on it, Ver Steeg said. The only way out of there is to walk out of there, and so I just walked out.

Its all just a test of skill. Dozens of radio operators from the Lake Monroe Amateur Radio Society (LMARS) camped out in trailers turned to radio outposts this past weekend at Central Winds Park for American Radio Relay League (ARRL) Field Day, a national competition that chal lenges amateur radio operators to make as many different contacts as they can in 24 hours. The operators man their ra dios as soon as the hypothetical doomsday clock strikes 2 p.m. on Saturday. Points gained from each con which is ranked among hundreds of ham radio clubs across the country. The LMARS team often nation. But the competition leaves the operators with more than brag ging rights; theyre getting a prac tice run before the next great di saster. In the current age of Internet and cell phones, a tornado or hur ricane could wipe it all away in an instant, leaving only the inde pendent backup generators that power ham radio and Morse code equipment dusted off for just an occasion. With the hams, a radio license brings a greater responsibility. The weight on their shoulders is Thats what we do, said ra dio operator Norm Lauterette. When the power goes down and the only lines of communication. Radio waves have been saving lives for decades. In 1912, newfan gled Morse code transmitters sent the distress signal from the Titanic that saved hundreds of lives. The 1920s saw the emergence of ama teur police radio, which reported crimes and stolen vehicles. It has been used by the United States military ever since. Using everything from Morse code equipment originating from the 1830s to smartphone apps that track satellites, the LMARS bom bards the airwaves to rack up con tacts. Though each niche is used in a different way, they all share the same function an ability to send radio waves in any circumstance. Many of these hams do this for their entire lives. As the sun goes down at the campgrounds on Sat urday night, the glowing monitor of Les Kramers laptop computer under a pavilion illuminates his frameless glasses. Kramer pauses and looks down at his feet as he remembers ham radio operator John Rothert, who passed away Rothert had gone out of his way to dispatch supplies during Hurricane Andrew, loading up his truck with as much food and water as it could bring. The ham operator rushed to a shelter in Mi ami after sending out a call across Florida. Like all ham operators who pass away, Rothert is now a silent key, termed after the contraption hams tap to send out the dots and dashes of Morse code. He was really the epitome of what I think a ham radio operator should be, because he was such a giving person, Kramer said. He made an investment to help people. The crucial role of a ham in desperate times makes amateur radio all the more important to pass on to younger generations. The skillset of amateur radio has continued to save lives, but the hobby has steadily declined. Out of the 313 million Ameri cans who will pick up a cell phone or laptop computer in their lives, only 750,000 of them are licensed radio operators, according to the ARRL. Another study done by ARWatch shows that the average age of a ham radio operator is 50 years old. Under the satellite radio pavil ion, radio operator Daniel Lewis is the youngest ham by more than 10 years. As the 37-year-old looks at the older generation of hams, he understands the importance of passing on amateur radio. He holds on to the basics he learned from his mentor, Robert Ray Forrester, who became a si lent key a few years back after also losing a battle with cancer. Lewis can still recall the sound of his voice over the airwaves. Deep and scratchy, yet calming and distinguished. For me personally, I feel like I owe it to him to propagate what Ive learned, to bring other people to the hobby so that they can un derstand whats out there in the world, Lewis said. The LMARS team visits ele mentary schools throughout Sem inole County every year, showing them what amateur radio is all about and what its used for. Many children take to the hob by afterward, joining the LMARS at the ages of 8, 9 and 10, Lauter ette said. The transmissions at Central Winds Park continue until almost 1 p.m. the next day. As a rainstorm quickly approaches, wires are quickly wrapped up and packed into insulated boxes. Antennas that reach for the stars are disas sembled in minutes. Morse code operator Robb Lapp makes one last contact with western Washington at 12:21 p.m. before signing off. The key would be packed away until it was needed once again. Silent, but only for now. The voices after the storm Using 100 years of tech, radio operators prepare to save the world TIM FREED The Voice PHOTO BY TIM FREED THE VOICE Rob Lapp taps away at his Morse Code key, searching for someone on the other side of the country during the American Radio Relay Leagues Field Day competition, when hundreds of teams try to be the greatest communicators.

Page 11 Young 18th century patriots At 26 years of age Edward Rut ledge was the youngest patriot to tion of Independence, and even tually he became the governor of South Carolina. As a young boy, Maryland delegate William Paca was tutored in the classics at home, attended Philadelphia Col lege at the tender age of 15, and earned his masters degree by the age of 18. He held many positions as a lawyer, state and federal judge, and eventually served as Marylands governor. Oldest, multi-talented signer The oldest patriot to sign our Declaration was born in 1706 in Boston in The House on Milk Street. He had nine siblings, seven half-siblings and was the third youngest of the 17 children. His father left behind a 200-year family history in England and children to the British colonies. His father hoped this young son would become a clergyman when he saw that the boy loved to read and write. But he struggled with math, and at the age of 12 was signed into a nine-year appren ticeship with his authoritarian older brother in the printing busi ness. Who could imagine that this youngster would become Amer icas iconic statesman, humorist, inventor, diplomat, politician, editor, printer and postmaster Benjamin Franklin. Information versus history Soon we will observe the 236th anniversary of our countrys of of Americans cannot name their U.S. Congressional Representa tives and Senators, or describe the basic framework of our American government. Ameri cans young and old can name the contestants on any number of reality shows but cant name the three branches of our govern ment. In an ber information age, our society tends to behave like couch potatoes consuming empty mental calories. Why do we seem to have an insatiable hunger for foster our intelligence as citizens, nurture our national wisdom or sharpen our long-term under standing of our sovereignty? For decades we have allowed elected powerful agendas without con sequence. American history has lost priority in our public schools, and it is considered rather oldfashioned to express patriotism, religious beliefs or moral con viction. America is increasingly viewed by its citizens as just another country. Nothing to see here, nothing exceptional. Safety versus security The best example we can set for our future generations is to pay attention to the state of our own freedom, liberty and government. It is not about partisanship, but about the role of government and our stance on personal liberty. Our country should not be run on constitutional autopilot. Benjamin Franklin referenced the newly formed U.S. govern ment as, A Republic, if you can keep it, and said, Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. So we must ask, are these truths still self-evident and what are we willing to do to secure our independence? 4th of July This land is your land If youve never attended Gene vas 4th of July Parade & Festival, let this be the year you come. Head to First and Main streets the parade route. The parade starts earlier, at 10 a.m., this year with the antique car cavalcade leading the way.

J une started with a reminder that we just entered that time of the year when hurricanes are a primary concern to every Chief Lars White was on his toes on June 6 with Tropical Storm Andrea. She provided us with lots of rain and a threat of torna dos. Thankfully, we came away with nothing more than wet feet and upturned umbrellas, but Chief White did get a chance to power up the tornado siren and it did a spectacular job! According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and Chief White, this years hurri cane season will be a busy one. NOAAs Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook says there is a 70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms. Of these, seven to 11 could become hurricanes with three to six becoming major storms of category 3, 4 or 5. Three factors are combining this year to produce an active season. These are: a strong West African wind pattern, warmer than average water temperatures, and the absence of El Nio to suppress hurricane formation as well as weaker wind shear. Tropical Storm Andrea was just a reminder that we need to be ready to be safe. Make a family emergency plan, and make sure your emergency kit is stocked!

TALK T O KAREN > I am hopping on my soapbox again about resumes. It has oc curred to me that people are very possessive of their informa tion and feel the need to include everything they have ever done on their resume. This is not the case! Think about it for a moment, why does an employer want your resume? They want it to introduce you to the job. They are looking to see if come at the time of the interview. Three pages is just too long. I received a resume the other day that was three pages, and I suggested we move it to two. The applicant got upset that she had already moved it down from four, and said that recruiters want more information. The information they want is about how you match with the job, not about a job you had in 1999 that isnt relevant to what you are doing today. I have more jobs in my history than appear on my resume, but those jobs dont are today. Please consult a resume expert if you are struggling to get an in terview.

A police officers White House tour with his daughter becomes a rescue mission when its invaded by a paramilitary force. Opening this week: WHITE HOUSE DOWNA memorial to Oviedo-area veter ans is moving closer, albeit slowly, to becoming a reality. But how big it will be and how it will be paid for remain to be seen. At the June 17 City Council meeting Fire Chief Lars White outlined exactly how far the project still had to go, start ing with a long list of names and revealing an uncomfortable secret along the way. Its called the Wall of Honor, long monolith, likely stone, and etched with the names of local soldiers who served in Americas wars. But who gets to go on the list? Thats not certain yet, White said. It was suggested to us that we dont put a lot of parameters on the names, he said. It should be the Oviedo area, not just Oviedo. Thats how Winter Springs han dled its memorial, allowing vet erans from the general area to be listed on their stone tribute. Teen pregnancy rates are declin ing in Central Florida, and educators at Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando said their programs are one reason for the decrease. The downward trend is a nationwide one, and since 2006 teen birth rates in Osceola, Seminole and Brevard counties are down. Orange County shows the greatest success with a 35 per cent decrease. A 35 percent decrease in six years is monumental, said Jenna Tosh, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando (PPGO). Tosh said access to medically accurate information and sex education is the key to prevent ing teen pregnancy, and PPGO reaches more than 15,000 teens each year through programs in Orange County Public Schools and in their clinics, making a huge impact on the Central Flor ida community. Orange County is following the trend across Florida. The sun shine state has a high percentage of teen birth rates in 2010, it ranked 23 out of 50 states (with 1 being best, 50 the worst). But it has seen a 53 percent decline since 1991, ranking it in the top the country. In Orange County, the rate went from 42.9 births for every 1,000 teen girls aged 15 to 19 in 2006, to 27.7 in 2012. Tosh said the programs PPGO chooses to implement have al ready shown proven, positive outcomes with teens when used by other organizations. They pair abstinence teaching with educa tion about birth control and safe sex practices. And not only have birth rates gone down, but the 2010 Orange County High School Youth Risk Behavior Survey results show that since 2005, less teens are having sex and more are using birth control when they do. Its important to not only give teens access to education, but to link it to medical care as well, which PPGO offers to teens at a reduced rate, Tosh said. Its a place teens can feel safe asking for help. Its a place she felt comfortable going to as a young woman, along with her friends. It can be scary to take the step to protect yourself as a teen if you dont have a parent or caregiver to talk to, but PPGO is there, she said. Teens can rely on Planned Parenthood for professional, non-judgmental, quality care, Tosh said. We have one of the most compassionate staffs; we are dedicated to making sure young people have access to the tools to stay safe and healthy. A PPGO educators goal is to shape attitudes and beliefs about sex and teach teens ways to communicate with partners and friends so they dont feel pres sured into anything.

The Oviedo City Council has commissioned Orlandobased branding company Technetium to create a brand for the city, which will be used on business cards, stationery and on the light post banners across the city. We are in the process of making a lot of changes, Councilwoman Cindy Drago said. Oviedo on the Park is becoming a reality and we have an emergency room being built as we speak right now, so we have a lot of changes in Oviedo and we want a new logo to really identify with that and identify with who we are.

Ebony Section is a senior educator for the Safer Sex pro gram, and said she likes to call it girl talk, because shes helping young women just like herself. Theyre able to talk to an edu cator they trust, she said. Section remembers one teen mom with two children already, who came in for help. They got her on birth control, and instantly she saw a difference in her demeanor, her life was truly changed. She had taken control. They build that self advoca cy, Section said. Theres also an anonymous text line to get quick answers about sexual health, or how to make an appointment at PPGO. Teens can reach them on Facebook, too, where staff responds to posts and private messages. Social media is now an important resource. Its so important to reach teens where theyre at, said Cris tina Calandruccio, community education coordinator. Another way they do this is through two programs that spe and Latino teens, who have a much higher rate of teen preg nancy than Caucasian teens. Both base their teachings on addressing parts of their cultures that may put them at risk. We work with the unique needs of the teens, said Yarira Fe liciano, program manager for Cui date!, which reaches Latino teens. And the best way to help teens is to educate them before they start having sex, so they can feel empowered with the knowledge to make healthy choices. Just one bad decision can af fect the rest of their lives, just a one-time risk, Tosh said. But another question raised the eyebrows of Oviedo City Attorney Lonnie Groot, who asked whether dishonorably discharged soldiers would be allowed on the list. Deciphering who was dis charged dishonorably is tough to clarify in many cases, White said. In some cases it cant be done at all, leaving a soldier in limbo on whether his name will be allowed on a memorial. Allowing all soldiers takes away that gray area. I do think that before the next couple of weeks you need to re or taking it off of there, Mayor Dominic Persampiere said. That way we can send somebody a let ter that says yes youre eligible or no youre not and tell them why. But it would be very hard to tell someone no. The project is starting to ma terialize on paper in the form of concepts, as the city grapples with how to pay for a project whose cost is still up in the air and sub ject to speculation that it could cost anywhere between $10,000 and several hundred thousand dollars to complete. how the city could partner with local charities to raise funds for the project so that more people could be involved in its creation. Were running this as a city project, and were going to establish this as a city account, White said. We are the ones who are do ing this memorial. But he said that hell be con tacting local organizations to try to get as much involvement as possible. By handling it through the city, White said, the project organizers wouldnt be saddling just one civic group with the re sponsibility to get it done. I just want to be sure the guidelines [are] in place and this is the right way to set this up, Councilman Stephen Schenck said. Its part of an overall brand ing, said Bryan Cobb, Oviedos interim city manager. The city has never really pursued brand ing before. We have numerous departments that have their own symbol so to speak, so its trying to bring consistency in the look of the city and the brand of the city. In late May, Technetium preand taglines before City Council. Samples ranged from a red and blue color scheme bearing a large O logo to a light blue design bearing the citys name in black with a stylized, white V. Councilman Stephen Schenck age that sums up Oviedos past, present and future. They gave us a bunch of great ideas, but its not an easy process, Schenck said. Youre trying to decide what represents Oviedo in terms of a picture, a saying and some colors that can pull the concept together. Were such a big family com munity now; you dont see that represented anywhere in that seal. So how can we get that across? The topic has also been raised about whether Oviedos wander into the new brand. The famil iar fowls have been the symbol for multiple community events, including the Oviedo Womans Clubs Great Day in the Country. That decision will fall mostly on Technetium, Drago said. We asked the company to use their imagination, Drago said. We all told them how we feel and what were looking for. If the While its uncertain whether the image of a chicken will appear may be represented in another way. One of the Technetium sam ples features a logo that resembles rays of sunshine, with each ray sporting a color pulled from the roosters tail feathers. The combination of reds and yellows appealed to the city council, and they are considering it for Though the colors dont re background or the Oviedo High School Lions roaring orange, the city is looking for something new, Drago said. Schenck stressed that holding onto the citys history is impor tant to the Council, and will play We want to be emblematic of that weve grown while keeping true to our heritage or history, Schenck said. Weve become a family destination while still having those elements and the phi losophy that weve had from the beginning. Council members are also still deciding on the citys tagline, which Schenck revealed will in volve family and the future. Though Technetium provided see more before they make a deci sion, Drago said. Unfortunately, what theyve shown us so far really hasnt brought the image that were trying to go for, Drago said. Some of the color schemes are good, but not the logo. We really want a logo that takes from our rich history, including our traditions and the future, so were trying to combine that. Its a hard thing to tell some one this is what I want and have them put it on paper and show us, but were going to keep trying. Council members are currently discussing the logo and colors with members of the community, and Technetium will present new samples to the City Council within the next two months.BRANDING | City may ditch chickens CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE PHOTO BY SARAH WILSON THE VOICEPlanned Parenthood programs, presented by coordinators Cristina Calandruc cio, Ebony Section and Yarira Feliciano, are said to help drop teen birth rates.

Its September 2012, nearly a year deep into the Amazon jungle. Grosmans team was lucky to have a camera at all. Despite all the dangers of the rainforest falls, pirates, predators and an unforgiving river its the humidity that killed the other two cameras, working through a constant thin veil of vapor until they failed. The video signal is rough be cause of interference from the overhanging trees, but it will have to do.

Grosman still remembers the broadcast half a year later. The throwback explorer had crossed more than 4,000 miles in his Amazon 5000 expedition, a trek through the harsh landscape of South America to inspire cancer patients around the world and raise money for research. A pirate attack had forced the team northeast toward Guyana, avoiding the Amazon River that had proved too dangerous. But the pirate attack had taken its toll on their supplies, 2,000 miles from the nearest Outdoor World. Grosman spread the word on line with his military computer, and eventually received a care School LLC. By March 20 10 months since the beginning of the expedition they reached the 4,430-mile mark, well within the borders of Guyana. Only 300 miles left. Grosman and company reached the blistering savanna plains south of Georgetown, scat tered with 10-foot termite mounds scavenged by roaming anteaters. The crew eventually reached Rockstone, where Grosman was reunited with former team mem bers Kyle Ver Steeg and Alex Her nandez, ready to join him for the last 100 miles. Ten days later, the expanded team found themselves wad ing through neck-deep swamps. Grosman knew that traveling with leeches would wear down around. Not too far away was the Es sequibo River. If the team could fashion another raft out of the local wood, they could avoid the swamp altogether. After tying together several logs and secur ing empty gas canisters along the sides, they had a raft that could barely keep six guys and 500 The team rode the raft down stream for 30 miles. They were able to dodge the swamp, but nobody noticed early on when Kyle Ver Steeg broke his foot after trip ping between two of the logs. I didnt tell anybody, because I didnt want that to be an issue for the team, so I just walked on it, Ver Steeg said. The only way out of there is to walk out of there, and so I just walked out.

Rick Harrelson keeps his hand on the dial as the CB radio reaches into the airspace above. This is November Four Echo Hotel; do you copy? said Harrel son urgently into the mic. In a matter of seconds, Califor nia says hello, then Texas just a few minutes later. The emergency generator hums outside a 25-foot trailer as Harrelson and his team search for signs of life in the static. With no power lines, the team is desperate to reach another op erator. Theyd been at it for more than four hours now. And another storm could be coming soon. Inside the dense clutch of trees mageddon, its a 10.0 earthquake, its a hurricane gone Category 5, its a tornado so powerful theyd aftermath that nobody wants, when all that are left are genera tors. No power for cell phone tow ers, no phone lines, no Internet. All that can speak are the radios. But outside these woods, the day passes by like any other. To day its not an emergency; not yet. Its all just a test of skill. Dozens of radio operators from the Lake Monroe Amateur Radio Society (LMARS) camped out in trailers turned to radio outposts this past weekend at Central Winds Park for American Radio Relay League (ARRL) Field Day, a national competition that chal lenges amateur radio operators to make as many different contacts as they can in 24 hours. The operators man their radios as soon as the hypothetical doomsday clock strikes 2 p.m. on Saturday. Points gained from each con which is ranked among hundreds of ham radio clubs across the country. The LMARS team often nation. But the competition leaves the operators with more than brag ging rights; theyre getting a prac tice run before the next great di saster. In the current age of Internet and cell phones, a tornado or hur ricane could wipe it all away in an instant, leaving only the inde pendent backup generators that power ham radio and Morse code equipment dusted off for just an occasion. With the hams, a radio license brings a greater responsibility. The weight on their shoulders is Thats what we do, said ra dio operator Norm Lauterette. When the power goes down and the only lines of communication. Radio waves have been saving lives for decades. In 1912, newfan gled Morse code transmitters sent the distress signal from the Titanic that saved hundreds of lives. The 1920s saw the emergence of ama teur police radio, which reported crimes and stolen vehicles. It has been used by the United States military ever since. Using everything from Morse code equipment originating from the 1830s to smartphone apps that track satellites, the LMARS bombards the airwaves to rack up con tacts. Though each niche is used in a different way, they all share the same function an ability to send radio waves in any circumstance. Many of these hams do this for their entire lives. As the sun goes down at the campgrounds on Sat urday night, the glowing monitor of Les Kramers laptop computer under a pavilion illuminates his frameless glasses. Kramer pauses and looks down at his feet as he remembers ham radio operator John Rothert, who passed away Rothert had gone out of his way to dispatch supplies during Hurricane Andrew, loading up his truck with as much food and water as it could bring. The ham operator rushed to a shelter in Mi ami after sending out a call across Florida. Like all ham operators who pass away, Rothert is now a silent key, termed after the contraption hams tap to send out the dots and dashes of Morse code. He was really the epitome of what I think a ham radio operator should be, because he was such a giving person, Kramer said. He made an investment to help people. The crucial role of a ham in desperate times makes amateur radio all the more important to pass on to younger generations. The skillset of amateur radio has continued to save lives, but the hobby has steadily declined. Out of the 313 million Ameri cans who will pick up a cell phone or laptop computer in their lives, only 750,000 of them are licensed radio operators, according to the ARRL. Another study done by ARWatch shows that the average age of a ham radio operator is 50 years old. Under the satellite radio pavil ion, radio operator Daniel Lewis is the youngest ham by more than 10 years. As the 37-year-old looks at the older generation of hams, he understands the importance of passing on amateur radio. He holds on to the basics he learned from his mentor, Robert Ray Forrester, who became a si lent key a few years back after also losing a battle with cancer. Lewis can still recall the sound of his voice over the airwaves. Deep and scratchy, yet calming and distinguished. For me personally, I feel like I owe it to him to propagate what Ive learned, to bring other people to the hobby so that they can un derstand whats out there in the world, Lewis said. The LMARS team visits ele mentary schools throughout Seminole County every year, showing them what amateur radio is all about and what its used for. Many children take to the hob by afterward, joining the LMARS at the ages of 8, 9 and 10, Lauter ette said. The transmissions at Central Winds Park continue until almost 1 p.m. the next day. As a rainstorm quickly approaches, wires are quickly wrapped up and packed into insulated boxes. Antennas that reach for the stars are disas sembled in minutes. Morse code operator Robb Lapp makes one last contact with western Washington at 12:21 p.m. before signing off. The key would be packed away until it was needed once again. Silent, but only for now.The voices after the stormUsing 100 years of tech, radio operators prepare to save the worldTIM FREED The VoicePHOTO BY TIM FREED THE VOICERob Lapp taps away at his Morse Code key, searching for someone on the other side of the country during the American Radio Relay Leagues Field Day competition, when hundreds of teams try to be the greatest communicators.

Page 11 Young 18th century patriots At 26 years of age Edward Rutledge was the youngest patriot to tion of Independence, and even tually he became the governor of South Carolina. As a young boy, Maryland delegate William Paca was tutored in the classics at home, attended Philadelphia College at the tender age of 15, and earned his masters degree by the age of 18. He held many positions as a lawyer, state and federal judge, and eventually served as Marylands governor.Oldest, multi-talented signerThe oldest patriot to sign our Declaration was born in 1706 in Boston in The House on Milk Street. He had nine siblings, seven half-siblings and was the third youngest of the 17 children. His father left behind a 200-year family history in England and children to the British colonies. His father hoped this young son would become a clergyman when he saw that the boy loved to read and write. But he struggled with math, and at the age of 12 was signed into a nine-year appren ticeship with his authoritarian older brother in the printing busi ness. Who could imagine that this youngster would become Amer icas iconic statesman, humorist, inventor, diplomat, politician, editor, printer and postmaster Benjamin Franklin.Information versus historySoon we will observe the 236th anniversary of our countrys ofof Americans cannot name their U.S. Congressional Representatives and Senators, or describe the basic framework of our American government. Americans young and old can name the contestants on any number of reality shows but cant name the three branches of our govern ment. In an ber information age, our society tends to behave like couch potatoes consuming empty mental calories. Why do we seem to have an insatiable hunger for foster our intelligence as citizens, nurture our national wisdom or sharpen our long-term under standing of our sovereignty? For decades we have allowed elected powerful agendas without consequence. American history has lost priority in our public schools, and it is considered rather oldfashioned to express patriotism, religious beliefs or moral conviction. America is increasingly viewed by its citizens as just another country. Nothing to see here, nothing exceptional.Safety versus securityThe best example we can set for our future generations is to pay attention to the state of our own freedom, liberty and government. It is not about partisanship, but about the role of government and our stance on personal liberty. Our country should not be run on constitutional autopilot. Benjamin Franklin referenced the newly formed U.S. government as, A Republic, if you can keep it, and said, Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. So we must ask, are these truths still self-evident and what are we willing to do to secure our independence?4th of July This land is your landIf youve never attended Genevas 4th of July Parade & Festival, let this be the year you come.

This is an all-volunteer event, so if you can help its not too late to lend a hand.June started with a reminder that we just entered that time of the year when hurricanes are a primary concern to everyChief Lars White was on his toes on June 6 with Tropical Storm Andrea. She provided us with lots of rain and a threat of torna dos. Thankfully, we came away with nothing more than wet feet and upturned umbrellas, but Chief White did get a chance to power up the tornado siren and it did a spectacular job! According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and Chief White, this years hurricane season will be a busy one. NOAAs Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook says there is a 70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms. Of these, seven to 11 could become hurricanes with three to six becoming major storms of category 3, 4 or 5. Three factors are combining this year to produce an active season. These are: a strong West African wind pattern, warmer than average water temperatures, and the absence of El Nio to suppress hurricane formation as well as weaker wind shear. Tropical Storm Andrea was just a reminder that we need to be ready to be safe. Make a family emergency plan, and make sure your emergency kit is stocked! On a brighter note, 4th of July is almost here! That means a big party in the parking lot of the Oviedo Mall!

TALK tT O KAREN >I am hopping on my soapbox again about resumes. It has occurred to me that people are very possessive of their information and feel the need to include everything they have ever done on their resume. This is not the case! Think about it for a moment, why does an employer want your resume? They want it to introduce you to the job. They are looking to see if come at the time of the interview. Three pages is just too long. I received a resume the other day that was three pages, and I suggested we move it to two. The applicant got upset that she had already moved it down from four, and said that recruiters want more information. The information they want is about how you match with the job, not about a job you had in 1999 that isnt relevant to what you are doing today. I have more jobs in my history than appear on my resume, but those jobs dont are today. Please consult a resume expert if you are struggling to get an in terview. Christian HELP provides this service for free. Email me your resume at sandi@christianhelp.org and I will have someone give you good feedback. I want to see you succeed in your search!
