No nail-biter to hold the crowd to the edge of their seats. Only euphoria. The history books welcomed the 2006-2007 Lake Howell Silver two future NBA players right on top of it, cheering, roaring, in tears. Fans in blue, silver and white went ballistic. Lake Howell cheerleaders quickly pulled out they stood over the jumbled stack of players in white uniforms. The raucous game had passed and then stops time. In this mo ment, after a blur of four quar ters, time was stopped again as the quiet man in silver-framed glasses watched from the side lines, taking it all in. Head Coach Steve Kohn had only called 12 timeouts in the entire 2006-2007 season. For one winter, time was always on his side. The Hawks had just spent the balance of the game putting on a basketball clinic at the Lakeland Center as they built a 43-point lead over a dominant Lakewood ished the season with only three losses in 31 games. This one was never even close. Kohn had watched the game as intently as always, a tacti cian anticipating his next move. savored a rare luxury. His son and assistant coach Reggie right beside him. He turned around in his chair and scanned the sta dium seats as the clock ran down in the fourth quarter, making eye contact with his wife Linda and other son Josh. The elder Kohn said a quick, silent prayer, thank ing God for even letting him be and fans danced. Until that moment, the Sil ver Hawks still held on to pain ful memories from before. Three years earlier on this same court, in this same moment, they watched the other team dance. On Friday night, March 2 of 2007, the man the boys called coach stood back as far as he could, Reggie at his side, letting the their team soak in the win as Stacey Schuler hasnt even graduated yet, but shes already landed a job as a paralegal the becoming a lawyer.

Schuler, a 39-year-old wife and mother of two, is set to graduate May 4 with her Associate of Sci ence degree in paralegal studies at Seminole State College. Ive wanted to be a lawyer for as long as I can remember, she said. I was always the type of person who watched trials on television from beginning to end, I just couldnt get enough. It was a big surprise to my family when I went back to it and Ive got to do it now before of faith though, she said. The S in A.S. degree can make a big difference, giving students a work-related specialty by the time they graduate, compared to A.A. degrees which typically re quire another two years of study for students to receive a bachelor of arts degree and then enter their Having that A.S. degree before transferring to the University of Central Florida to complete her studies will allow Schuler to work education, an option that would chosen to go straight into a bach elors degree program. This program is American Bar Association-approved, which gives me the credentials to work as a paralegal while I study to become a lawyer, Shuler said. Without the A.S., I wouldnt be able to do that. Many students like Schuler are using the A.S. degree program as a stepping stone to further educa they can work their way through school as a professional in their a paralegal, I sat down at my desk and I was prepared to do my job, thanks to my studies at Seminole State, Schuler said.

The City Council approved the dents who fail to pick up dog poo. Residents would be subject to penalty for letting pet waste build up in their yards as well, while a dents for not having a bag on their person while walking a dog. City Manager Bryan Cobb said failing to bag the offending doo. Concerns over the citys storm water quality were the main driv er behind the proposed ordinance, he said. The idea is if you start a pro gram to get people to clean up after their pets as they walk them and they have a conscious effort to clean that up then it will re duce the amount of [poo] going into your surface waters, Cobb said. One of the regions major wa ter bodies, the Little Econ tribu from encroaching excrement. A 2010 report from the U.S. Environ mental Protection Agency labeled the river as impaired for fecal coliform, with pollutants com ing from both natural sources and outside sources like septic tanks and domestic pets. Oviedo Stormwater Coordina tor Amanda Kortus said that the city cant directly attribute what pets leave behind to the pollution of the Little Econ, but the ordi nance at least shows a proactive effort in solving the problem. We can at least take measures to say This is what were doing to the best of our ability, she said. One city ordinance already in place addresses the illicit dump ing of toxic chemicals, waste and pet poop into water bodies and stormwater drains. Violating that ordinance and directly contami nating a water source could lead as high as $200,000. Kortus originally from the United Kingdom noted that its illegal in her home county to not pick up after a dog. The law ap plies across the entire nation, as opposed to the U.S. where indi vidual cities step forward one at a time to pass an ordinance. The all-encompassing ap proach makes a lot more sense, she said. We talk about all of these pol lutants and everything, but then everyones so shy to put measures in place because theyre afraid of offending people, Kortus said. The citys main focus moving forward if the ordinance passes would be the neighborhoods sur rounding the Little Econ corridor. Code enforcement would keep an eye on subdivisions like Twin Rivers, Sanctuary, Riverside and Ekana Green to make sure resi dents pick up the poop, Kortus said. Its just making everybody in the com munity as a whole re sponsible for the envi ronment and that were not going to stand for polluting our local wa ters, Kortus said. The environment that we have around us is so beautiful. We want to keep it that way. Kortus said that an other Seminole County city recently requested a draft of the pet waste ordinance, considering a version of their own. She could not reveal which municipality contacted her.

Page 4 | April 11, 2014 | Seminole Voice IN T ERES T S THIS WEEK IN HUMAN HISTORY APRIL 17, 1960 Transportation week at Kids Together Child Development Center in Oviedo is such a big deal that Dave and Loraine Nel son drive their RV down from Jacksonville every year just to be a part of it. Their grandkids attend the school and, as retired educators, they want kids to have as many hands-on learning experi ences as possible. Assistant Director Jamie Kirker couldnt agree more. We try to plan as many hands-on ex periences as we can, because its important for kids this age to use as many senses as possible while learning, Kirker said. The kids look forward to it all year because it is such a huge show and tell event. Through community connections and the help of parents, the school is able to welcome more than 20 different types of vehicles for the kids to climb on, through, over and around. From the everyday to the extreme, a lit tle bit of everything was on hand March 26 for the preschool classes ages of kids ages 1 to 5 to enjoy. One dad brought his bass boat, and in stantly became the hero of his 5-year-olds class since most kids had never seen such a shiny, sleek vessel before. The bright red, antique Mini Cooper was also a big hit with the little tykes, who The city of Oviedo Public Works Depart ment took time out of their day to show off their big toys to the tots. It just so happens nicely in the bucket of a front-end loader, standing shoulderto-shoulder as one class readily demon strated. Also on hand was the Seminole County Patrol vehicle on its last pink day, now instead patrolling the streets covered in teal for ovarian cancer awareness. The most popular vehicle on display was the ice cream truck, but that could have had something to do with a certain sweet treat the owner was doling out. And who could ignore Boston Lobster Feasts massive crustacean-shaped VW Beetle? In an impressive display of parent par school in his private plane, gently dipping his wings in a classic aviator salute. The Nelsons RV, as in past years, was a big hit thanks in no small part to Dave Nelson and his decades of experience in engaging young minds. What do you see in here thats like what you have at home? Dave asked, encouraging the little ones to make com parisons. Many were quick to point out the full kitchen and marveled over the slide-out panels that magically moved at the touch of a button. A good educator is a bit of a show man, said Dave with a sly grin. These kids get excited to see how things in here are different or the same as their home and they are amazed that we can live so comfortably in here. Hillary Aran enrolled her daughter Mackenzie in the school partially because They get to experience something they may otherwise never see, she said. Plus the whole time they are learn ing to take turns, be part of a group and to learn from each other outside the class room.

Seminole Voice | April 11, 2014 | Page 5 AT HLE T I C S THIS WEEK IN SPORTS HISTORY APRIL 13, 1972 court lined with gold medals. Together theyd built a team that would go down in history. Now theyre hoping for a shot to do it again. Reggie announced in March that he would be leaving his cur rent position as head coach of Orlando Christian Prep to take on a new frontier at The Masters Academy, where hell serve as head coach alongside his father, who will take up an assistant coach position. This is dj vu for the duo them, reuniting seven years af ter a state championship with Lake Howell that redeemed the schools back-to-back losses in the That teams senior core had experienced every one of them. Senior Chandler Parsons would go on to play in the NBA for the Houston Rockets while senior Nick Calathes would go on to play for the Memphis Grizzlies. But as the players pursued new ventures in basketball, so did the coaches. Reggie left for Orlando Chris tian Prep that next year and began putting together a high school basketball dynasty, leading the Warriors to four state champion ships in the past six years. He attributed his coaching style to his father, who built his team on forming relationships with players and treating them as equals. I love my father and I love who he is, Reggie said. I strive to coach in that way because I think thats the best way to do it. Build ing relationships, being calm, not having to scream a whole lot but just be ing able to talk to them is the best way to reach guys. I got that example from him. Meanwhile Reggies older brother Josh was building another program from the ground up. Josh joined Hagerty High School right as it was established in 2005 and founded the schools current bas ketball program. The transition into a basket ball coach came naturally for Josh and his brother. Theyd grown up around hardwood courts and locker rooms, traveling with their fathers high school teams on charter buses across the state. They both even played under him at Lake Howell High School. He started coaching when I was 5 years old, so I was the kid at every practice and every game, Josh said. I loved how he handled him self. I just thought he was very calm and patient. Joshs initiative at Hagerty ulti mately paid off last year when his Huskies took the FHSAA Class 8A state championship in March. Kohns goal since last year has been simple: watching his two sons coach. He walked away from coach ing altogether last year to watch his sons lead their own teams, leaving Lake Howell High School after 26 years. But a need at The Masters ball coach caused Kohn to pick up the whistle once more. I wasnt going to take over; I was really done, because I really like to go to [my sons] games, Kohn said. But they had a need here. the coaching slot for the The Mas ters Academy al lowed him to ob tain a milestone he never thought hed achieve. The matchup on Dec. 20 last year against Cen tral Florida Chris tian Academy felt like any other game for Kohn. He had no idea why his entire fam ily was there to see the game. The Masters Academy held a comfortable lead through the en tire game while Kohn sat quietly courtside and watched. That was always his style: never scream ing, never yelling just calm and poised. He knows the game real well, Calathes said. He might not be a screamer that other coaches are, but when he needs to say some thing, hell get it out and everyone will listen. Kohn earned his 500th career win after defeating Central Flori da Christian Academy 61-22 fur ther placing him among the best high school basketball coaches in Florida history. But Kohn said he never kept track of his wins; hed stopped counting. Seeing a familiar face decades after they hung up their basketball sneakers gave him more satisfaction than anything else, he said. The wins just mean youve been coaching a long time, thats all that means, Kohn said. When a player I had 20 years ago is still calling me coach, thats pretty cool. Not that hes ever been off the court long enough for players to forget. Now with destiny leading father and son to the same hard wood court once again, the torch isnt so much being passed as held aloft by two hands. Kohn fondly remembers the days of being Reggies assistant coach at Lake Howell from 2004 to 2006, later leading a team that had suffered two state championship losses to the top of the Florida bas ketball world. Those were three of the best years of my life, Kohn said. Its only been a bit more than a month since the last time one of the Kohns won a state champion ship. Theyve played the role of champions plenty of times. At The Masters Academy, they helm a team thats only been to the post season once in the last six years. Now the Florida high school bas ketball world will see if the Kohns can make their team soar again.

Seminole Voice | April 11, 2014 | Page 7 VOI C ES THIS WEEK IN POLITICAL HISTORY Young Voices We would from Young love to hear your Call 407-563-7023 or email to have The Voice visit your class or group. Voices! Kids working at the Seminole County Jr. Cattlemens Rodeo said what they like about horses and the rodeo. I have been to this rodeo many times and have been riding since I was 9 years old. Cattle sorting is hard to do because it is hard to get the cows to cooperate. My horse is named Badger. Madison U. 15 years old Ive been to the rodeo all four years and have worked the concession stand with my 4-H Club. I like watching them warm ing up in the ring. Ive been riding horses half my life. My horse is named Genesis. Emily L. 14 years old I like the rodeo because I get to meet people and to work the concession stand. It is fun to watch the teams, the races and the kids boot scramble. My horses are Lemonlardi and Ginger. Gracie Y. 9 years old Ive been to other rodeos, but this is the first time at this one. I used to have a horse named Bob. Today they will be competing on horseback. I like the race when they pull people on the pillowcases. Tony G. 12 years old This is my first time at the rodeo. It will be fun, we will watch all the cows and horses. I liked riding a horse before, but it was a little bumpy. I hope it doesnt rain too hard today. Joshua R. 11 years old Sandi Vidal is the executive director for Christian HELP and the Central Florida Employment Council, with more than 15 years of recruiting and human resources experience. For questions, please call 407-834-4022 ( fax 407-260-2949) sandi@ or mail Ask Sandi C/O Christian HELP, 450 Seminola Blvd., Casselberry, FL 32707. TALK T O SANDI > EMPLOYMENT Ask Sandi Easter is often mentioned as a favorite holiday, which is not a holiday laden with weeks of commercial media attention. Our fondness for Easter probably took root in those early memories of fuzzy yellow chicks, fat purple bun nies, or decorated Easter eggs. These happy colors and fun characters embraced us and we grinned back with toothy (or toothless) smiles and some times squeezed these soft, pas tel friends for comfort. As little girls crawled into toddler-hood some loved to dress up for those special church services, maybe topped with a pastel hat patent shoes. Of course the boys didnt care much for the long pants and dress shirts, but it was still worth some discom fort to be able to dive headlong into the Easter egg hunts, and the brim. Decades ago teachers didnt think twice about giving us springtime projects that involved plastic or pastel grass and eggs, and maybe even a tulip or two. Dyeing Easter eggs at the kitchen table was a wonderful tradition in our family, and it was amazing how creative we could be! I remember pre-dawn drives to sunrise services in the station wagon where we would the sunrise, and then drive to church to hear the choirs sing their joyful cantatas. Add milk chocolate to the mix and it is no surprise that even our mod ern celebrations make Easter a favorite holiday. The Easter story As I matured I admit to hav ing had mixed feelings about the Easter story. The happy, joyous Easter Sunday that I learned about as a young child was clouded as I learned more about the scheming and plot ting leading up to the betrayal of Jesus and the tortuous hours But in time I came to appreci ate that the brutal events also underscored the depth of through this human experience for mans salvation. It is easy to appreciate the depth of despair and confu sion that Jesus disciples found themselves in after his death. Three days later, imagine their stunned reactions to the miraculous revelations that he had conquered death and would live forever. True renewal The Easter story has pro vided a lifeline to Christians for centuries with the prom ise that anything is possible, and that life continues after death. That even from the most unimaginable ending, hope and new beginnings are possible. It is a universal truth that this renewal is one of our creators greatest gifts, and it is no accident that after the drab grays and neutrals of winter we celebrate Easter in spring time when we witness natures renewal in all its colorful glory. Community events and support If you are looking for a place to celebrate Easter, Geneva has several churches that would welcome you and your family. Check out the various loca tions: If you are a lady in need of support, Geneva offers lots of groups to join.

Did you know that one of the largest groups of unem ployed people is new college graduates? Not what you want to hear after spend ing four years in college and possibly taking out loans. For students just entering college or summer is a great time to explore intern to major in. They are not always easy to experience is well worth the effort of looking for them. If you are graduating soon and have no idea what you are going to do when you leave school, run to your career plan ning and placement center now! They are there to help you with the next steps in All college students should be familiar with, and be utilizing, their career cen ters. The sad thing is many have no idea the school even has one. If you are the parent of a college kid, it is a great place to encourage them to go. Most colleges have online job boards, career fairs, and relationships with area employers. The more informed you are about what jobs are out there and who is hiring, the better the chances are you will land a good job. The centers also help with resumes and mock interviews to prepare students for their future. I also highly suggest get ting on LinkedIn because it will give you exposure, show you available jobs, and help you to network. As Steven Covey always said, Begin with the end in mind. It is never too early to start planning for graduation. Where to nd your career start King Features Weekly ServiceApril 7, 2014 EDITORIAL CARTOONS
