In-home delivery by Friday, May 23Do you see red differently than normal? The difference may be untraceable to subjective eyes, but how the brain interprets the color red could share a link to se vere mental illnesses. Dr. Jeffrey Bedwell of the Uni versity of Central Florida hopes to learn more about schizophre nia, bipolar disorder and other severe mental illnesses by study ing the visual abnormality. The professor is currently seeking out candidates diag nosed with schizophrenia-related illnesses to take part in a study of the minds reactions to the crim son color. Candidates wear an electroen cephalography (EEG) cap with 64 electrodes placed along the scalp, measuring brain activity as they perform a 50-minute visual exer cise. The volunteers stare at a com puter screen with an 8-by-8 grid of squares, as the background changes from red, to green and to gray. In their hands is a video game controller where they tap a button whenever they see an im age of a bison pop up on screen. It takes a closer look at the the ory claiming that mental illnesses the potential cause for unusu al brain activity while viewing red are genetic in na ture. The thought is that its probably genetic because we see the behavioral effects even in the tives who dont have schizophrenia but share half their genes, said Bedwell, whos been teaching at UCF since 2004. That abnormal gene that might be shared among some of those rela tives also causes this visual abnor mality thats somewhat separate from the symp toms of this disorder. Its like a side effect of the gene. It could lead to a better un derstanding of severe mental illThe votes are in: Seminole County residents will pay an ad ditional penny in their sales tax for the next 10 years.

Seminole Voice | May 23, 2014 | Page 3 THIS WEEK THIS WEEK IN WORLD HISTORY MAY 28, 1937 The government of Germany under the control of Adolf Hitler forms a new state-owned automobile company, later named Volkswagenwerk. After WWII ended, the Allies would make Volkswagen their focus of attempts to resuscitate the German auto industry. Bill Kelly said. Seminole County Public Schools has seen a 55 per cent cut in its capital budget since 2008 and desperately needs the revenue, he said. That money source offers Seminole County Public Schools some muchneeded relief to renovate its current build ings, school board member Dede Schaff ner said. When youve got roofs that are leaking and air conditioners that arent working, youve got to do something about it, Schaffner said. We just didnt have the money to do it, so this is a huge boost for the Seminole County Public Schools. The county hasnt had a 7-cent sales tax since 2011, when it chose to not renew it due to hard eco nomic times. It was previously levied from 1991 to 2001, and then again for another decade. The extra penny, which goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2015, is esti mated to pull in $630 million over the next 10 years. Roughly $19 million will go to Winter Springs, which will use the revenue to repair its bridges and roads. Mayor Charles Lacey said he hopes to use the money to reduce demands for capital funds and al locate more money toward reduc ing other expenses. That could leave the city with more room to cut property taxes and help par tially compensate for the penny sales tax, he said. If we manage it correctly, then I think the citizens will get the best of both worlds, Lacey said. Theyll get projects put in place that make their lives a little better in terms of roads and stormwater, and theyll do so without so much extra tax burden. Residents voting against the tax made a good showing on Tues day with 47.85 percent of the vote, or 23,022 voters. The proposed return of the sales tax had many locals questioning how much it was needed. Former Seminole County Commissioner Grant Maloy argued that the county already wasted a great deal of money on projects that didnt make sense, particu larly a $2 million contribution to the Orlando City Soccer Club stadium in Orange County. I think a tax increase of this nature and of this size $630 million hurts people, it hurts businesses, Maloy told The Voice in March. I dont think its nec essary, especially when you look at how much money the county commissioners have been wasting. They need to spend money wiser. David Leavitt, chairman of the Libertarian Party of Seminole County, helped lead a campaign against the sales tax prior to the vote. The added penny may have been voted through, but Leavitt said that his party will keep a close eye on the countys use of the tax revenue. Were going to be watching all the spending and where its going, Leavitt said. This is just the beginning for us. Were going to need them to do things they promised they would do. Tuesdays vote was the narrowest approval of the penny sales tax yet. The additional 1 cent was passed by 60.09 percent in 1991 and by 72.36 per cent in 2001. The closer election this year could be a sign of the times, Maloy said. We have a bigger database of people that are frustrated with the county wasting our money, Maloy said. That could come in handy in future races for county Weve met a lot of good peo ple out there that were concerned about losing freedom. This is an other day that youll be working for the government now to pay your tax bill and one less day working for yourself.TAX | Winter Springs could pull in $19 million from tax revenue CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGEnesses, he said. Bedwells study all ties back to research he conducted previously at the University of Georgia. A similar exercise that alternated between red and gray backgrounds was done with 28 healthy people agnosed with schizophrenia and 31 people with didnt have any relatives with the disorder. group of 28 performed equally well on the task with both colors, while the second group of subjects without diagnosed relatives ex perienced a drop off in accuracy during the red portion. They appeared to process red in opposite ways, Bedwell said. As a UCF professor, Bedwell has monitored 30 candidates since December 2012 and plans to reach a goal of 100 participants. Hell monitor a second group of 100 candidates as well, only the can didates will either have no history of mental ailments or currently have a mild mental disorder like anxiety. The research is part of $404,000 grant from the National Institute of Mental Health, which has re cently placed a greater focus on studying across diagnostic cat egories instead of focusing on one type of mental illness. Bedwell hopes that by studying a cluster of symptoms instead of individual disorders, it might determine whether many differ ent illnesses are essentially part of one all-encompassing disorder. Theres a lot of hope that that might give us the answer more than the old way did, Bedwell said. Traditionally, researchers would be funded to just study people with schizophrenia com pared to people with nothing. That approach hasnt really gotten us anywhere. We think its because what were calling schizophrenia might actually be many different disor ders that we dont know how to divide right now.

One of the main problems is no one understands what is caus ing these disorders, he said. As a result, the treatments are only effective for maybe two thirds of people with these disorders, and even then its still not fully effec tive. Bedwell said that negative side effects often cause patients to stop taking their current medications, allowing their symptoms to return. The patient will usually return to the hospital eventually and continue taking the medica tion until the cycle repeats itself. The research could go a long way to eventually preventing the disorders, said Dr. Yuri Rassovsky, an associate research psychologist at UCLA and a consultant assist ing Bedwell with his research. I believe that the results from this study have strong potential to increase our understanding of the underlying brain mechanisms that may be disrupted in schizo phrenia, Rassovsky said. intervention or prevention pro grams to ameliorate the most im pairing aspects of this disorder. Severe mental disorders are widespread across the globe. One percent of the entire world popu lation suffers from schizophrenia, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. more effective treatments some day could reach an even larger population, said Bedwells graduate research assistant Julian Mon taquila. Not only could it lead to im proving the lives of a lot of peo ple, it could affect the lives of their families and caregivers, he said. Weve come a long way, but theres still much work to be done.

The story of Pinafore concerns a First Lord of the Admiralty who is thwarted in his attempt to woo and marry the beautiful daughter of a British Navy ships captain. The year is 1977. In theaters across the nation, moviegoers are transported to a distant time, in a galaxy far, far away. In a now famous scene, a small but loyal robot projects a holographic distress call from a princess. The transmission is weak, but the message is clear. Glowing an iridescent blue, the tiny holographic princess is stand ing right there. Back then; the technology needed to produce such imagery was a long way off. Even with recent advances in 3D technol ogy, none has come close to creating a realtime 3D moving image like that imagined in Star Wars, until now. Professor Jayan Thomas and his team at the University of Central Florida NanoSci ence Technology Center are tantalizingly true. Previous 3D technology involved trick ing the brain into believing what is sees on sional image, when in reality it is not. In order to accomplish this trickery, viewers often needed expensive, cumbersome eye wear. Because of its limitations and the need for additional equipment, sales of 3D TVs have waned in recent years and cable chan nels slated to offer 3D content have been canceled. 3D TV may not be dead yet though; there is a new hope on the horizon. This new technology would look and behave very much like that shown in Star Wars. The screen would be horizontal, like a tabletop, with the image projected above the screen in full-color 3D, viewable from 360 degrees. Best of all, no glasses or extra equipment would be required. decades as holography (and now called, appropriately, holography), would allow viewers to see images in the same way we see real three-dimensional objects. This concept of real time three-dimensional imagery, known as 3D telepresence, has been in development since the 1970s. But only recently have advancements in nanotechnology, such as Dr. Thomas, made it possible for the concept to become reality. We are not anywhere close to retail pro duction yet, Thomas said, but it is pos sible that in four to six years we could be. Thomas is working on perfecting the screens to improve their refresh rate from around 2 se We have already shown that this can be done, we just need to make it fast enough for video display, Thomas said. The screens are essentially an electrode sandwich. This is where the nanotechnol ogy comes in. Layered between two sheets of glass is a sensitized, photorefrac tive polymer capable of producing holographic images when hit with a pulsed laser. This polymer contains nanopar ticles, smaller than 1/100th the thickness of human hair. These particles, when hit with the laser from below, record and refract the image being sent, projecting it above the glass. Red, blue and green colored LED lights shining down from above make the fullcolor holography visible to the naked eye. In order to send a 3D image, say of a meeting, a minimum of four cameras are needed (although more is better). These images are sent to a computer where the image data is combined and converted from pixels (2D image units) into hogels (3D image units), which are then sent to the receiving computer. The receiving computer sends the mes sage to the laser, which writes to the screen and the image can be seen in near real-time by anyone in the room. According to Thomas, LG Display has already expressed interest in his develop ing technology. Practical applications for such tech nology can go far beyond entertainment though. Medical doctors could one day use this technology to virtually oversee surgeries in progress. Manufacturers could see and share prototypes in full-color, full-motion 3D. Travelers could consult up-to-the-min ute accurate 3D maps. And Star Wars fans everywhere will rejoice.Sci-fi lore becomes 3D realityALLISON OLCSVAY The VoicePHOTO BY ALLISON OLCSVAY THE VOICEUCF professor Jayan Thomas is working to bring Star Wars-type technology into the real world with 3D TVs.

The Lions silenced the Semi noles offense with a stingy de fensive line, allowing Oviedo quarterback Nick Carbone to go to work. The Oviedo junior didnt let the Blake Bortles draft craze distract him. He threw two touchdowns and handed the ball off twice to running back Jurell Green for two rushes into the end zone. Tight end Connor Kowalczyk and wide receiver Malcolm Bry ant made the two touchdown catches. Kyle Panagiotou of Oviedo kept the Lions momentum going with his own catch an intercep tion in the third quarter. Meanwhile the Lions defense kept the Seminoles without a touchdown for almost the entire pass to Horonadis Tillman with 16 seconds left in the second quar ter gave the Seminoles their only touchdown. lar season with a 6-4 record, falling short of the playoffs.HagertyThe Huskies struggled to Marys stout defense kept them at bay while the offense handed them a 45-14 trouncing.

Lake Mary quar terback William Cannon Thomp son repeatedly pushed his Rams into scoring position with savvy footwork, which he used to score self when he made a carry into the end zone four minutes into the game. But Hagerty didnt stop chas ing the Rams. Huskies running back Tavis Thompson lit a spark for his team when he ran the ball the second half, after being held scoreless by the Rams through two quarters. The boys in black and blue fought back in their defensive game as well, forcing two fumbles in the spring showdown. But the Huskies fell short, letting Lake Mary build on its winning streak and wrap up its regular season undefeated with a 10-0 record.

TALK tT O SANDI > EMPLOYMENT Ask Sandi honor on Memorial Day. The ultimate price paid by our military men and women is stunning, whether they were jarheads, leathernecks, grunts, troopers or corpsmen, many just on the cusp of adulthood. They left the comforts of home to serve on impossible battlesides, the thick humidity of swamps and in the swells of ferocious seas.Heeding the call to serve and signposts that led them to choose military service. They were kids, siblings and students who started out just like you and me, but for these soon-to-be heroes, the call could not be ignored. The U.S. government recruited pharmacist Mate Delmar Powell for a secret mission where his skills would be urgently needed. Two years later, this unarmed kid was on the blood-soaked sands of Normandy, dodging medics on Omaha Beach. He returned to his ship and spent three days tending to the in jured on tank decks purposely transformed into operating rooms. After the war, he went on to serve his God in Africa and here at home. Read about his rollicking childhood during the Great Depression and how family values shaped his life in the book, Spizzerinktum: The Rapturous Delight of Growing Up American, which he wrote at the age of 84.Its all about dutySome went for the adventure of seeing exotic faraway places Europe, Asia, the Middle East. Some were pulled by a patriotic sense of duty. To defend America from the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, to be a force of intimidation, and to draw a line in the sand. Some went for the paycheck and the down-spiraling neighborhoods or dysfunctional families. For some it was an alternative to traditional college where action and adventure accompanied education, where practical skills and structure would build discipline, character and Some were drafted quickly, like my cousin Keith McEnany, who served in the early years of Vietnam. He was one of so many tentative participants in My heart breaks each time I stand before the polished stone of the Vietnam Wall and trace the letters of his name nestled among the many thousands chronicled there.Enduring before death they endured: the pain, the fear, the homesickness, the tragic loss of comrades and friends, illness and injury from weather, disease, contamination, and lack of resources. The horrible images they witnessed and could not block out in a lifetime. The decisions and ac tions they were forced to make. The roles and mantles they were forced to take on in order to survive. Every generation handled it differently. It is well documented that most World War II vets didnt talk much about their experiences when they came home. They kept it inside and tried to move on. But their wives and families knew about the nightmares, the emotional walls, and the triggers that transported them back to the explosions, artillery The price of freedomThis year we observe the 10th anniversary of the World War II Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Colleges are graduating students by the truckload, and many profession ing jobs on contract and they are able to make it for short periods of time. The problem is that the contracts come and go and there are no unemployment checks in between. It is essential when you are unem ployed to continue to network. If you are a college student, tap into your parents network as well. People may judge you for it, but it does work. I know many kids who have gotten jobs and internships using their parents connections. For the professional job seeker, if you dollars, but it does keep your skills fresh. One of my friends just landed her dream job by volunteering for an organization and learning the skills she needed for the job she wanted. College graduates can do this too while looking for a job. I know that we have hired several people who have volunteered with our organization. Lastly, take classes to keep your skills fresh. Many of the colleges have continu ing education classes. Some classes even have grant assistance through Career Source Central Florida or can be taken free at your local library. Christian HELP offers a series of job skills classes (learn more here: www.cfji.org) that are free and have placement assistance at the end. The important thing is to keep looking and dont give up.

In-home delivery by Friday, May 23 Do you see red differently than normal? The difference may be untraceable to subjective eyes, but how the brain interprets the color red could share a link to se vere mental illnesses. Dr. Jeffrey Bedwell of the Uni versity of Central Florida hopes to learn more about schizophre nia, bipolar disorder and other severe mental illnesses by study ing the visual abnormality. The professor is currently seeking out candidates diag nosed with schizophrenia-related illnesses to take part in a study of the minds reactions to the crim son color. Candidates wear an electroen cephalography (EEG) cap with 64 electrodes placed along the scalp, measuring brain activity as they perform a 50-minute visual exer cise. The volunteers stare at a com puter screen with an 8-by-8 grid of squares, as the background changes from red, to green and to gray. In their hands is a video game controller where they tap a button whenever they see an im age of a bison pop up on screen. It takes a closer look at the the ory claiming that mental illnesses the potential cause for unusu al brain activity while viewing red are genetic in na ture. The thought is that its probably genetic because we see the behavioral effects even in the tives who dont have schizophre nia but share half their genes, said Bedwell, whos been teaching at UCF since 2004. That abnormal gene that might be shared among some of those rela tives also causes this visual abnor mality thats some what separate from the symp toms of this disorder. Its like a side effect of the gene. It could lead to a better un derstanding of severe mental ill The votes are in: Seminole County residents will pay an ad ditional penny in their sales tax for the next 10 years. Residents voted through Sem inole Countys proposal to bring back the penny sales tax on Tues day, with 52.15 percent of the vote 25,093 votes out of the total 48,115 counted on Election Day. The additional penny which raises the sales tax from 6 cents to 7 cents will go toward road im provements, trails and stormwa ter projects.

Seminole Voice | May 23, 2014 | Page 3 THIS WEEK THIS WEEK IN WORLD HISTORY MAY 28, 1937 The government of Germany under the control of Adolf Hitler forms a new state-owned automobile company, later named Volkswagenwerk. After WWII ended, the Allies would make Volkswagen their focus of attempts to resuscitate the German auto industry. Bill Kelly said. Seminole County Public Schools has seen a 55 per cent cut in its capital budget since 2008 and desperately needs the revenue, he said. That money source offers Sem inole County Public Schools some muchneeded relief to reno vate its current build ings, school board member Dede Schaff ner said. When youve got roofs that are leaking and air conditioners that arent working, youve got to do something about it, Schaffner said. We just didnt have the money to do it, so this is a huge boost for the Seminole County Public Schools. The county hasnt had a 7-cent sales tax since 2011, when it chose to not renew it due to hard eco nomic times. It was previously levied from 1991 to 2001, and then again for another decade. The extra penny, which goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2015, is esti mated to pull in $630 million over the next 10 years. Roughly $19 million will go to Winter Springs, which will use the revenue to repair its bridges and roads. Mayor Charles Lacey said he hopes to use the money to reduce demands for capital funds and al locate more money toward reduc ing other expenses. That could leave the city with more room to cut property taxes and help par tially compensate for the penny sales tax, he said. If we manage it correctly, then I think the citizens will get the best of both worlds, Lacey said. Theyll get projects put in place that make their lives a little better in terms of roads and stormwater, and theyll do so without so much extra tax burden. Residents voting against the tax made a good showing on Tues day with 47.85 percent of the vote, or 23,022 voters. The proposed return of the sales tax had many locals questioning how much it was needed. Former Seminole County Com missioner Grant Maloy argued that the county already wasted a great deal of money on projects that didnt make sense, particu larly a $2 million contribution to the Orlando City Soccer Club sta dium in Orange County. I think a tax increase of this nature and of this size $630 million hurts people, it hurts businesses, Maloy told The Voice in March. I dont think its nec essary, especially when you look at how much money the county commissioners have been wast ing. They need to spend money wiser. David Leavitt, chairman of the Libertarian Party of Seminole County, helped lead a campaign against the sales tax prior to the vote. The added penny may have been voted through, but Leavitt said that his party will keep a close eye on the countys use of the tax revenue. Were going to be watching all the spending and where its going, Leavitt said. This is just the beginning for us. Were going to need them to do things they promised they would do.

Bedwells study all ties back to research he conducted previously at the University of Georgia. A similar exercise that alternated be tween red and gray backgrounds was done with 28 healthy people agnosed with schizophrenia and 31 people with didnt have any relatives with the disorder. group of 28 performed equally well on the task with both colors, while the second group of subjects without diagnosed relatives ex perienced a drop off in accuracy during the red portion. They appeared to process red in opposite ways, Bedwell said. As a UCF professor, Bedwell has monitored 30 candidates since December 2012 and plans to reach a goal of 100 participants. Hell monitor a second group of 100 candidates as well, only the can didates will either have no history of mental ailments or currently have a mild mental disorder like anxiety. The research is part of $404,000 grant from the National Institute of Mental Health, which has re cently placed a greater focus on studying across diagnostic cat egories instead of focusing on one type of mental illness. Bedwell hopes that by study ing a cluster of symptoms instead of individual disorders, it might determine whether many differ ent illnesses are essentially part of one all-encompassing disorder. Theres a lot of hope that that might give us the answer more than the old way did, Bedwell said. Traditionally, researchers would be funded to just study people with schizophrenia com pared to people with nothing. That approach hasnt really gotten us anywhere. We think its because what were calling schizophrenia might actually be many different disor ders that we dont know how to divide right now.

One of the main problems is no one understands what is caus ing these disorders, he said. As a result, the treatments are only effective for maybe two thirds of people with these disorders, and even then its still not fully effec tive. Bedwell said that negative side effects often cause patients to stop taking their current medica tions, allowing their symptoms to return. The patient will usually return to the hospital eventually and continue taking the medica tion until the cycle repeats itself. The research could go a long way to eventually preventing the disorders, said Dr. Yuri Rassovsky, an associate research psychologist at UCLA and a consultant assist ing Bedwell with his research. I believe that the results from this study have strong potential to increase our understanding of the underlying brain mechanisms that may be disrupted in schizo phrenia, Rassovsky said. intervention or prevention pro grams to ameliorate the most im pairing aspects of this disorder.

Page 4 | May 23, 2014 | Seminole Voice IN T ERES T S THIS WEEK IN HUMAN HISTORY MAY 25, 1878 Gilbert and Sullivans HMS Pinafore premieres at the Opera Comique in London, beginning a run of 571 perfor mances. The story of Pinafore concerns a First Lord of the Admiralty who is thwarted in his attempt to woo and marry the beautiful daughter of a British Navy ships captain. The year is 1977. In theaters across the nation, moviegoers are transported to a distant time, in a galaxy far, far away. In a now famous scene, a small but loyal robot projects a holographic distress call from a princess. The transmission is weak, but the message is clear. Glowing an iridescent blue, the tiny holographic princess is stand ing right there. Back then; the technology needed to produce such imagery was a long way off. Even with recent advances in 3D technol ogy, none has come close to creating a realtime 3D moving image like that imagined in Star Wars, until now. Professor Jayan Thomas and his team at the University of Central Florida NanoSci ence Technology Center are tantalizingly true. Previous 3D technology involved trick ing the brain into believing what is sees on sional image, when in reality it is not. In order to accomplish this trickery, viewers often needed expensive, cumbersome eye wear. Because of its limitations and the need for additional equipment, sales of 3D TVs have waned in recent years and cable chan nels slated to offer 3D content have been canceled. 3D TV may not be dead yet though; there is a new hope on the horizon. This new technology would look and behave very much like that shown in Star Wars. The screen would be horizontal, like a tabletop, with the image projected above the screen in full-color 3D, viewable from 360 degrees. Best of all, no glasses or extra equipment would be required. decades as holography (and now called, appropriately, holography), would allow viewers to see images in the same way we see real three-dimensional objects. This concept of real time three-dimen sional imagery, known as 3D telepresence, has been in development since the 1970s. But only recently have advancements in nanotechnology, such as Dr. Thomas, made it possible for the concept to become reality. We are not anywhere close to retail pro duction yet, Thomas said, but it is pos sible that in four to six years we could be. Thomas is working on perfecting the screens to improve their refresh rate from around 2 se We have already shown that this can be done, we just need to make it fast enough for video display, Thomas said. The screens are essentially an electrode sandwich. This is where the nanotechnol ogy comes in. Layered between two sheets of glass is a sensitized, photorefrac tive polymer capable of producing holographic images when hit with a pulsed laser. This polymer contains nanopar ticles, smaller than 1/100th the thickness of human hair. These particles, when hit with the laser from below, record and refract the image being sent, projecting it above the glass. Red, blue and green colored LED lights shining down from above make the fullcolor holography visible to the naked eye. In order to send a 3D image, say of a meeting, a minimum of four cameras are needed (although more is better). These images are sent to a computer where the image data is combined and converted from pixels (2D image units) into hogels (3D image units), which are then sent to the receiving computer. The receiving computer sends the mes sage to the laser, which writes to the screen and the image can be seen in near real-time by anyone in the room. According to Thomas, LG Display has already expressed interest in his develop ing technology. Practical applications for such tech nology can go far beyond entertainment though. Medical doctors could one day use this technology to virtually oversee surgeries in progress. Manufacturers could see and share prototypes in full-color, full-motion 3D. Travelers could consult up-to-the-min ute accurate 3D maps. And Star Wars fans everywhere will rejoice.

Oviedo Oviedo took charge late in against Seminole High School and never looked back, en route to a 31-10 victory. The Lions silenced the Semi noles offense with a stingy de fensive line, allowing Oviedo quarterback Nick Carbone to go to work. The Oviedo junior didnt let the Blake Bortles draft craze distract him. He threw two touchdowns and handed the ball off twice to running back Jurell Green for two rushes into the end zone. Tight end Connor Kowalczyk and wide receiver Malcolm Bry ant made the two touchdown catches. Kyle Panagiotou of Oviedo kept the Lions momentum going with his own catch an intercep tion in the third quarter. Meanwhile the Lions defense kept the Seminoles without a touchdown for almost the entire pass to Horonadis Tillman with 16 seconds left in the second quar ter gave the Seminoles their only touchdown. lar season with a 6-4 record, fall ing short of the playoffs.

Lake Mary quar terback William Cannon Thomp son repeatedly pushed his Rams into scoring position with savvy footwork, which he used to score self when he made a carry into the end zone four minutes into the game. But Hagerty didnt stop chas ing the Rams. Huskies running back Tavis Thompson lit a spark for his team when he ran the ball the second half, after being held scoreless by the Rams through two quarters. The boys in black and blue fought back in their defensive game as well, forcing two fumbles in the spring showdown. But the Huskies fell short, letting Lake Mary build on its winning streak and wrap up its regular season undefeated with a 10-0 record.

The ultimate price paid by our military men and women is stunning, whether they were jarheads, leathernecks, grunts, troopers or corpsmen, many just on the cusp of adulthood. They left the comforts of home to serve on impossible battle sides, the thick humidity of swamps and in the swells of ferocious seas. Heeding the call to serve and signposts that led them to choose military service. They were kids, siblings and students who started out just like you and me, but for these soon-to-be heroes, the call could not be ignored. The U.S. government recruited pharma cist Mate Delmar Powell for a secret mission where his skills would be urgently needed. Two years later, this unarmed kid was on the blood-soaked sands of Normandy, dodging medics on Omaha Beach. He returned to his ship and spent three days tending to the in jured on tank decks purposely transformed into operating rooms. After the war, he went on to serve his God in Africa and here at home.

Colleges are graduating students by the truckload, and many profession ing jobs on contract and they are able to make it for short periods of time. The problem is that the contracts come and go and there are no unemployment checks in between. It is essential when you are unem ployed to continue to network. If you are a college student, tap into your parents network as well. People may judge you for it, but it does work. I know many kids who have gotten jobs and internships us ing their parents connections. For the professional job seeker, if you dollars, but it does keep your skills fresh. One of my friends just landed her dream job by volunteering for an organization and learning the skills she needed for the job she wanted. College graduates can do this too while looking for a job. I know that we have hired several people who have volunteered with our organization. Lastly, take classes to keep your skills fresh. Many of the colleges have continu ing education classes. Some classes even have grant assistance through Career Source Central Florida or can be taken free at your local library. Christian HELP offers a series of job skills classes (learn more here: www.cfji.org) that are free and have placement assistance at the end. The important thing is to keep looking and dont give up.
