City will keep property tax rate

the same 'one way or the other'

By John Peery
Apopka Chief Staff

City budget officials say the' are
working toward keeping the proposed
property tax rate for the 2010-2011 fiscal
year the same as the current rate.
Currently, the property tax rate
charged by the city is 3.5168 mills or
$351.68 per S 100.000 in taxable property
value. In July, the City Council approved
a higher proposed rate of 4.143 mills, but
that isn't expected to be the final rate.
"Our goal is to get the same village
rate as last year," said Richard Anderson,
the city's chief administrative officer. "We
will get there one way or the other."
When the City Council gase pre-

liminar, ap- ...... .,,,K
proval to that -"
higher tax
rate, the cuts .
needed to
balance the
budget with
the lower tax
rate was $3.4
million. An-
derson said.
About 90
percent of
that amount has been cut from the budget.
with about S325.000 remaining to cut from
the budget so that the city can meet the cur-
rent millage rate of 3.5168 mills.
The current cuts will follow budget

reductions of about S 1" million over the
past three tfieal years as the economy has
slowed and the recession has taken over.
The issue came up at the City Coun-
cil meeting on \\ednedai\. September I,
when Apopka resident Tony McArthur
spoke to the commissioner and May or
John H. Land.
"I'm ageainM the tax rate increase for a
number ot reasons," McArthur said.
He then went on to cite several statis-
tics comparing go% ernmcntal pay and ben-
etii, vs. those of the private sector. He also
spoke about several issues regarding city
employees and ways the city could save
money by getting rid of cost-nf-living and

Tater Bowl event keeps rivalry friendly

By Neal Fisher
Apopka Chief Staff

When Wekiva High
School was opened four years
ago, it was a representation of
the changing and grow ing face
of the Apopka area.
With the opening of the
high school, it created a rivalry
with Apopka High School.
One of the wsa)s the com-
munity is attempting to keep
the rivalry at a friendly level
is by creating the annual Tater
Bowl event.
Billed as a community-
wide pep rally, the second an-
nual Tater Bowl rally will be
held Tuesday, September 7,
beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Kit
Land Nelson.
The Apopka Area Cham-
ber of Commerce is hosting
this event along with partners,

The Tater Bowl logo features the likenesses of the mascots
of each high school.

The Apopka Chief and Chick-
fil-A at Hunt Club. Dexter
Chase, a member of the Cham-
ber, as well as the event's
chairman, conceived the event
and its name as a keepsake of

the city's origins
Apopka was named such,
because it is the Indian word
for big potato and thus the
origin of the name, the Tater
Bowl. The Indians referred to

lived next to Lake Apopka.
"The purpose of the Tater
Bowl is to bring the Apopka
community together. by bring-
ing the schools together for a
day of friendship with each
other and everyone else,"
Chasc, said. "Last year, both
schools competed with pas-
sion, but the night was about
coining togetlier to promote
the city of Apopka as a whole,
"We want this event to
be a community gei-together
which involves as many peo-
ple who live here as possible."
Chase said. "We had a great
start with what we had last
year. This, year, we are mak-
ing it a little bit more fun, and
our goal is to make it bigger.
In the process, the students get
some exposure, we gel to give.

."We are %ern much look-
ing forward to the Tater Bowl
and representing Wekiva in
this year's competitions." Greg
Matthews. Wekiva High Stu-
dent Government Association
president. said. "While we are
two separate schools represent-

we also feel we both represent
Apopka. We want to win the
Tater Bowl, but more impor-
tantly, it is an opportunity for
both schools to come together
as unified Apopkans."
"We are excited about the
Tater Bowl and what it means
to the community." said Ashley
Bell Apopka High SGA presi-
dent. "We had a great time last
year representing the school
when the games were played
and we wanted to win. But the
event last year was about rep-
resenting the school and what
we. Apopka, are about. It is in
broader terms an event repre-
senting Apopka and its future."
Among the additions to
this year's event is the first

tater-eating contest, sponsored
by Porkie's BBQ. The event
will also include the participa-

Chase said. "Last year, both
schools competed with passion.
but the night was about coming
together to promote the city of
Apopka as a whole.
"The cheerleaders per-
formed and the bands played
together. We had a great mood
throughout the event because
of the friendliness between the
schools. It was a great way to
start a new tradition and a lot of
fun to put it on and watch it.
"We are excited about it
continuing this year and it be-
ing an event the community
looks forward to. We pray the
weather is good and everyone
enjoys what we are adding to
the Tater Bowl."
Cultivated by the bands of'

Kudos to the Apopka Police Department
Apopka's finest can certainly be commended for a job well
done. Chief Vavrek leads a team of individuals dedicated to
serving and protecting the citizens of Apopka and all those
who enter our city limits. The ability of these officers shined
through on Saturday, August 21st when 500 people converged
on the VFW downtown for the 1 1th Annual Hunting Heritage
Banquet and Auction, hosted by the Wekiva Springs Strutters,
the Apopka chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation.
Deputy Chief Robbie Manley and his officers contained
the area to lessen the impact of the additional vehicles and
pedestrians on the streets and parking areas around the VFW.
Their tactical expertise was seamless and was a great help to
all banquet guests upon their arrival and departure from our
great city.
Most of all, the friendly demeanor of the Apopka Law
Enforcement team definitely reflected the spirit of Apopka.
Thank you to all the officers for a perfect evening and for all
you do for our community! With great appreciation,
The Wekiva Springs Strutters
The Apopka Chapter in the NWTF

City promises same tax rate

Later this month, the Apopka City
Council will vote to finalize both the
property tax rate and the city budget for
the 2010-2011 fiscal year, which begins,
October 1.
As of this writing, the proposed
property tax rate, also known as the
millage rate, is 4.143 mills, which
would represent an increase in the prop-
erty tax rate. While it is a hike in the
millage rate, it would bring in the same
amount of property tax revenue to the
city because of the 13 percent drop in
land value in Apopka.
That, of course, is an average value,
and each landowner's property is valued
on its own merits by the Orange County
property appraiser's office.
But, the city, as it has in the past,
plans to keep property taxes at the same
rate, which is currently 3.5168. That
would mean an actual drop in property
taxes paid to the city by residents be-
cause of the lower property values.
There are, of course, some peo-
ple concerned about the City Council's
passing of the higher proposed rate. But,
fortunately, it is only the proposed rate
and the final rate, whatever it is, won't
get its deciding vote by the City Council
until a September 29 meeting that be-
gins at 5:15 p.m. at City Hall.

We fully expect that the City Coun-
cil will pass the lower of those two tax
rates, which will mean that the taxes
property owners pay will actually go
down because of the lower millage rate
on decreased property values.
Richard Anderson, the city's chief
administrative officer, said sever-
Sal weeks ago and reiterated it just this
week in a public meeting that he and
Edward Bass are working to get the
budget balanced so that the current mill-
age rate of 3.5168 mills will be suffi-
cient for the 2010-2011 budget. While
there is no way to be sure until the final
vote, the city's track record proves that
we can expect the lower tax rate to pass.
Last year, the same scenario exist-
ed and the city got the budget down to
what was needed in order to keep the-
millage rate the same.
According to Anderson, there is an-
other $325,000 that still needs to come
out of the proposed 2010-2011 budget,
but he said that will be done, "one way
or another."
While the past is not a guarantee of
the future, we know that the city has
kept the millage rate the same in prior
years, and we expect the same to be true
when the tax rate and budget are passed
later this month.

Election turnout very disappointing


The primary election is over and the re-
sults are in. Apopka had a 23 percent voter turn-
out for the primary, better than the paltry 8.7
percent for the city elections in March. but still

VERY disappointing! How can we turn our
backs on one of our most sacred rights in this
country, the right to vote! This coming election
in November will be one of the most important


Negative campaigns work, but why?

"Why does it have to be so
negative?" is the political ques-
tion I'm asked most frequently.
It is interesting that most
people who want to know
why campaigns "go negative,"
those people who claim to be
offended by the negative cam-
paigning, also know EXACT-
LY what is being claimed, and,
whether they admit it or not,
have used that same informa-
tion in making decisions about
the candidates. Simply put, al-
though we don't like it, candi-
dates use negative campaign-
ing for one simple reason ... it
The real question is why
does it work?
The purpose of a cam-
paign is to win. In order to win,
a-candidate requires votes, not
a set number of votes. just one
more vote than their opponent.
As candidates and their man-
agers look over the landscape
of their election, they under-
stand that there are two ways
to cause you to vote for them
- they can EARN your vote, or
they can GET your vote.
The approach to earning
and getting are very different.
In order to earn your vote,
a candidate has to win you
over. An earned vote is one
that usually comes early in
the campaign. You become a

Tico Perez

supporter, a volunteer, a sup-
portive voice in the commu-
nity and someone the cam-
paign can count on. In order
to earn your vote, a candidate
has to "touch" you at least sev-
en times. You have to know
the candidate, their positions,
and their personalities. You
have met them somewhere,
read their literature, and possi-
bly spoken with them at some
point. In order to earn a vote.
a candidate has to invest time,
resources and a great deal of
Earned votes are the most
important because they bring
with them individual commit-
ment and buy-in. An earned
vote sports a bumper stick-
er, has a yard sign in the front
yard, and is a champion for the
campaign. They come aboard
fairly early and are there for
the duration.
Ideally, elections should
be won with earned votes, but
that is.rarely the case. Candi-

dates with very high negative
poll numbers, little or no name
identification, small budgets,
and candidates who find that
there are large numbers of un-
decided voters or that they arc
losing, decide that they must
simply get your vote; that is,
they do not care if you like
them, they just want you to
understand that between them
and the other guy they are the
least bad choice.
The goal is to achieve
the state where "you may not
know me or even like me, you
don't need to; I want you to
hate/fear the other guy."
Enter negative campaign-
ing. .
The goal of a negative
campaign is to make you dis-
like the opponent. Candidates
know that if you are going to
vote, you will likely vote on
all of the races. It is a rare vot-
er who votes only in elections
where they have selected a
candidate to support.
Candidates know that in
races where little is known
about the candidates, vot-
ers make a voting decision on
what they may have heard,
whether they know the name
(think yard signs everywhere)
and whether they have any

cal is Woods and prize money
runner-up David Duval (close
to S4 million), who have each
played only one regular tourna-
ment in the past seven weeks
and less than one-half of this
year's official events.

unbendable rules.

recently as 1991, Corey Pavin
led the money list with less
than a million with $979,430.

we're NOT a Democracy, or that

Apopka Chief Staff

Apopka High's school nurse has
joined a campaign to educate parents on
the importance of getting their children
vaccinated against meningococcal men-
Carolyn Seifert, RN, BSN, NCSN.
FASN, is working with the National As-
sociation of School Nurses' Voices of
Meningitis to spread the word about the
deadly disease that can sometimes kill a
child in as little as one day. "In Florida,
the number of adolescents that are im-
munized to protect them from meningi-
tis is lower than the rest of the country."
she said. "They (Voices of Meningitis
staff) are focusing on the Tampa and
Orlando areas, trying to encourage the
nurses to get the word out."
Seifert said the reason most parents
don't get the children immunized is that
they don't know the vaccinations are

available or are not aw, are of the need to
,accinate against the disease. The Cen-
ters for Disease Control and Presen-
tion recommends meningococcal \ac-
cinations for preteens and teens 11 to
18 years old. However, in Florida. 66.4
percent of adolescents 13 to 17 sears of
age have not been vaccinated to relieve
the disease.
There are two types of meningi-
tis viral and bacterial. Seifert said.
The vaccine protects against the bacte-
rial strain, which is much more danger-
ous and can kill or disable an otherwise
healthy young person in a single day.
Of those who survive, one in five is left
with serious medical problems, includ-
ing amputation of limbs, brain damage,
deafness and organ damage. "There are
between 1,000 and 2,600 Americans ev-
ery year that contract the bacterial men-
ingitis and 10 percent of these people
die," she said. "It sounds like a small
amount, but it isn't when it's your child.

Carolyn Seifert a school nurse
It's nothing to play around with."
Preteens and teens are at a great-

er risk for getting meningitis and
death rates are up to five times high-
er among teens and young adults com-
pared with other age groups. Meningi-
tis can be spread through common ev-
eryday activities, such as sharing eating
utensils and drinking glasses, living in
close quarters like dormitories or over-
night summer camps., and kissing. Seif-
en said. Meningococcal disease can be
hard to recognize, especially in its early
stages, because symptoms are similar to
more common viral illnesses. The only
way to accurately diagnose the disease
is through a spinal tap.
"The vaccine has been around for
decades, but the word really hasn't got-
ten out," said Seifert. One vaccine will
last a lifetime.
Parents can get their children ages
18 and under vaccinated free by the Or-
ange County Health Department. For
more information, call OCHD at 407-

Much work must be done

We simply cannot sit on the

someone else will do the work'.
It must be each and esers one
of us. Walk a precinct or make
phone calls for the candidate
of your choice, or put a sign in
your yard. Talk to your fam-
ily. friends, neighbors and co-
workers. Tell them they must
be willing to research the can-
didates and issues and VOTE
in November.
If we stay home and shrug
our apathetic shoulders, the
march towards socialism, cor-
ruption and anarchy will be
complete! Are we really will-
ing to sit on the sidelines and
let this happen'?'? We must re-
claim this great nation of ours
before it is too late! Ad un-
less we vote and tell everyone
we know till we are blue in the
face to vote. we will be unable
to rescue this great nation of
ours! But November is just the
The words complacent
and apathy must be strick-
en from our vocabulary. We
should not be content to just

ions to our elected otricials.

On Wednesday Septem-

against the proposed rate at the
City Council meeting in July.
when the rate was announced'?
Two! That's right. two people.
Unless more people come
to the meeting on September
15 to speak up and speak out.
chances are very good the rate
will go to 4.143 mills. That
means that no matter how it

travels the country putting on concerts in city parks and collecting donations of

A little later in the middle 1930s, along
came a young towhead named George A. "Jug"
Anderson. the father of country singer. John An-
derson. Jug was a fireballer who seemed to spe-
cialize in no-hitters. He has been known to pitch
both ends of a double header, pitching a no-hitter
in each game. He earned the name of ironman:
however, as expected, he threw his arm away
early while pitching for the Jacksonville Tars.
The games were always played on Sunday
and Thursday afternoons. On Thursday,. the lo-
cal merchants closed shop in order to attend
the games. It was best not to get sick on game
days because our local doctor, Tonmmy McBride.
would be attending the game as close behind
home plate as he could get. The old Edwards
Field stadium, which had a roof in those days,
would generally be filled to the brim.
During the depression., the Apopka club and
the Lake-Orange League had financial difficul-
ties. The Apopka Baseball Club had leased Ed-
wards Field from the city and was unable to pay
the lease because of the hard times. The citizens
of Apopka wanted lights at Edwards Field so
they could have their Thursday games at night
instead of closing the stores in the afternoon.
During those times, the merchants could not af-
ford to close on Thursdays IInimlIe The City

area. I recall two searchlights, one being some-

Tennessee. Washington had their spring training
in Orlando at the time. and Ray had an extreme-
ly good spring and was moved up to the Sena-
tors. He was another product of the Lake-Orange
League to make it to the majors.
And of course, we had our left-handed won-
der Jim Mahaffey. who always claimed, "I won
more games than any other pitcher we ever had."
He forgot to add that he lost more games than
any other pitcher because he pitched in more
games. Jim was not known as a humble soul.
As the boys returned home from the se vic-
es. baseball was restored and Apopka continued
in its winning ways. From 1947 until the late
1950s. crowds in the thousands turned out for
the gamei.
By the late 1950s, you could watch imaijo
league baseball on television, visit the beaches
on the new roads that were available or spend
your leisure time in the new Ihopping centers
springing up in the area. Attendance for local
baseball slowly faded away. The Lake-Oiiangc
LeaiIgue was abandoned, and baseball as vwe
knew it then was gone.

(See Bible vecse beiof asc a e cr" s
When Armando Galarraga, the pitcher for
the Detroit Tigers, was deprived of a pe-
fect game this past June by a bad call
from umpire Jim Joyce in the last inning with one
out to go, instead of protesting or walking off the
field indignantly, he smiled and went back to work.
His display of self-control and his willingness to for-
give the bad call was perhaps a better example to
all of us than his perfect game would have been.
After the game it was apparent that Mr. Joyce was
mortified by his bad call, saying that he had botched
what should have been the final out in Galarraga's
gem of a game. But, what was really admirable in
this whole affair was Armando Galarraga's willing-
ness to say, in effect, "No problem, we all make
mistakes" and Jim Joyce's willingness to admit the
mistake, express regret and personally apologize.
Given the good example that was exemplified by
both men, maybe this was a perfect game.

week lifestyle improvement
seminars are for people who
want to avoid and/or reverse
problems dealing with heart
disease, high blood pressure,
adult-onset diabetes, high cho-
lesterol and obesity.
The CHIP program, which
celebrated its 22nd anniversa-
ry this year, is the brainchild
of Dr. Hans Diehl, director of
the Lifestyle Medicine Insti-
tute of Loma Linda, California.
Diehl, a pioneer in the field of
healthy lifestyle medicine, got
his start as a program director
for the Nathan Pritikin Longev-
ity Center in California.
"I've said it before and I'll
keep saying it health is not
everything, but without it, ev-
erything is nothing," said Die-
ht. "Individuals can reverse
disease with a knife and fork.
They just have to know how.
You can take charge of your
ojvn health today."
"In just 5 weeks, you can
ItIrn simple, safe and practi-
cal ways to eat more and weigh
lt.s, decrease your risk for
hart attack, stroke and can-
car, normalize diabetes and
btood pressure and increase the
overall quality of your life,"
s;Iid Bodil Morris. Forest Lake
Church health ministries direc-
tqr. "The successful results of
this program have been pub-
likhed in peer-reviewed jour-
nals such as the American Jour-
neal of Cardiology. Most life-
style programs held in wellness
centers can cost you thousands
of dollars and require you to fly
to far-away places. The CHIP
program costs significantly less
with the same benefits, plus
you will have an on-going sup-
port system through the CHIP
alumni program at Forest Lake
Morris says heart screen-
ings measuring cholesterol.
triglycerides, blood sugar and
other important parameters
will be provided for each par-
ticipant at the beginning and
end of the program to measure
health improvements. Healthy


cooking demonstrations and
food samples will also be fea-
tured along with personalized
counseling and exercise tips
during the lecture series.
Patricia Nicholas, a For-
est Lake CHIP graduate. said
the program helped her lose
16 pounds and lower her cho-
lesterol level from 209 tol50.
"This program works," said
Nicholas. "1 feel better. I am
healthier and happier."
Forest Lake CHIP gradu-
ate Judy Gill was so dedicat-
ed to getting the program right
that she went through it twice.
"I lost 12 pounds the first go-
round, but wanted to pay closer
attention to all the great infor-
mation the second time," said
"I wanted to integrate even
more positive lifestyle behav-
iors into my daily choices.
CHIP is not a diet, but a set of
comprehensive lifestyle chang-
es meant to last a lifetime!"

Lake Church's 2010 Fall CHIP

Gracie Blair, at 407-579-5600.

So, don't miss another issue

new ways to transform, change.
and live a healthier lifestyle
should attend a "revolution" of
the vegetarian kind at the For-
est Lake Church on Sunday,
September 26. from noon to 4
The event will be held in
the church's upper youth cen-
ter. Forest Lake Church in lo-
cated at 515 Harley Lester
Lane in Apopka across from
firehouse #13 on SR 436.
The "revolution" is be-
ing sponsored by the church's
health ministries department
and will focus on learning
about a total vegetarian life-
style and tasting delicious food
"There is a food revolu-
tion happening in this coun-
try," says Monica Tschickardt,
ARNP and a main coordina-
tor of the event. "People today
are more aware of fat, salt and
sugar in their diets and are try-
ing to cut back in those areas.
Restaurants are responding by
putting more healthful dishes
on their menus. Food manufac-
turers are following the trend
by taking out trans fats and
the high fructose corn syrup in
many products. They're also
developing new ones including
whole grain pastas and more
soy-based meat alternatives."
While Tschickardt believes
such trends are steps in the
right direction, she says people
need to take it to the next lev-
el to experience optimal health.
"That's what this event is all
about," she said. "It's learn-
ing to live a totally plant-based
food lifestyle no meat, dairy,
cheese or eggs and watching
the sugar and salt, too."
"Many might think 'well,
that sounds boring and taste-
less.' or 'I don't have time to
stick to a lifestyle like that.'"
said Bodil Morris, ARNP and
Forest Lake Church's health
ministries director. "But
they're wrong. If they'll just
come and experience this revo-
lution on September 26. those
myths and others will be put to
rect for good."

All Seasons Pest Control celebrates 25 years

and is looking for the Biggest Roach in Apopka

Congratulations to All
Seasons Pest Control
for celebrating their 25th
anniversary serving Apopka.
"We'd like to thank all of our
loyal pest control and retail
customers for letting us
serve you," said Wayne and
Terry Levesque, owners of
All Seasons Pest Con-
trol. "Without you, none of
this is possible."
While celebrating, All
Seasons Pest Control
is looking for the Biggest
Roach in Apopka 2010. If
you're-interested in winning
a free pest control service
or $100 cash, enter All
Seasons Pest Control's
7th annual 'Biggest Roach
in .Apopka' contest. You can
bring in any type of roach.
The contest begins Septem-
ber 15, 2010 and ends Sep-
tember 30, 2010. The prize
will be awarded and pictures
taken October 4th, 2010 at
All Seasons Pest Con-
We've had quite a few
entries in the past," says Ter-
ry,"and many people stop by
just to see the current 'Big-
gest Roach in Apopka.' We
really do have a lot of fun
with this contest."
All Seasons Pest
Control was started on

July 1. 1985."It's been a long
haul with much persever-
ance," said Wayne. "When
we started our business, we
literally had only a handful
of customers. Terry worked
nights for two years to
support the family while I
worked each day building
the business. Together, we
have built this business day
to day, earning one customer
at a time," said Wayne.
All Seasons Pest
Control offers a variety
of indoor pest control ser-
vices that are done annu-
ally, quarterly, or one-time
as needed, which includes
rodent services, bee service,
and termite control. Their
most popular service is
their money saving Termite
& Pest Control combo pack.
This package offers protec-
tion from both termites and
those pesky insects at a dis-
counted rate for a full year
and can be renewed annually.
They also offer a one-time
lawn treatment for insects.
All Seasons Pest
Control also has an on-line
Do-It-Yourself Pest Control
retail store. You can either
go directly to it at www. or
visit their service Web site
at and click

on the link. Whether it's for
indoor, outdoor, attics or
crawl spaces, AIL Seasons
Pest Control has what
you need. Once your insect
problem has been identified,
a product will be chosen
and professional advice will
be given. One of the biggest
mistakes made by consum-
ers is not properly mixing
and applying the product. It
is very important to always
read and follow the label di-
Different insects require
different types of products
and treatments. Just buying a
can of bug spray and spray-
ing everything in sight will
not necessarily take care of
your problem. And this is
definitely not the safe way to
go about doing it. All Sea-
sons Pest Control car-
ries a variety of products in-
cluding concentrated sprays,
baits, granules, dusts and the
equipment needed to prop-
erly apply your product.
With 32 years of expe-
rience in the pest control
industry, you can expect the
best professional service
around with All Seasons
Pest Control. So stop by

Rubio: He wants to prevent a federal capital gains tax hike

Contmkued from page 13A

Rubio's rirst idea is to stand up to the
En ironmental Protection Agency on nu-
menc nutnents the numeric amount of
phosphorus or nitrogen that is allowed in a
bod, of after.
Florida currently has a narrative stan-
dard for nutrients., meaning that the amount
of phosphorus and nitrogen cannot disturb
the flora or fauna.
Due to en% ironmental groups suing the
EPA in 2008. Florida is facing the federal

imposition of "\hat Rubio called economi-
call% damaging numeric nutrient standard,
on its lakes and riders.
Idea number t\\o is to promote eco-
nomic growth and job creation through
trade. reducing barriers to free and fair
trade. the candidate said.
Rubio's third idea is to present a
capital gains tax hike, which. the candi-
date .aid. not onlh affects those \%ho make

To Start Saving

[ For a righted

Orlando Federal Credit Union can help show

your children the importance of saving money

Children and teens learn
about money from many
sources. Even before school
age, they observe adults us-
ing money and buying things.
They watch television daily
and see thousands of com-
mercials each year. Like it or
not, money is a part of your
children's life.
As a parent, you will
not be the only influence on
what your child learns about
using money. But. when you
teach basic lessons about
money, you increase the
chance that your child's val-
ues will be similar to yours.
At Orlando Fed-
eral Credit Union, the
CU Kidz Savers account is
for members up to age 12.
When they open an account,
each child will receive a prize
and a quarter holder to help
them save! The cost to open
a children's account with
OFCU is only $5, which
will stay in the member's ac-
They have developed a

Making This Right




Economic Investment


Health and Safety

No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the
beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup
in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet.
We have been working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is
to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have
19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
restaurant owners, helping to make them whole.

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have
already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a
$20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost
incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism
recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches.

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams
will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.

And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific
experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.

Thousands of BP err.oljovees have their roots in the Gulf. We support
over 10,000 jobs in the region and oeoole here are our neighbors We
know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil
is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do
everything we can to make this right.

the more they stay the same.

On and off the track: 'Will the real NASCAR driver please stand up?'

Sometimes, when watching how
NASCAR drivers react off the track
compared to how they behave behind
the wheel, the old TV game show "To Tell
the Truth" comes to mind.
At tihe end of the game show, where a
celebrity panel tries to decide which of the
three people before them is the central
chrnacter and which two are impostors, the
- host asks: "Will the real (the central char-
icter's numnc) please stind up'?"
.'lfl (ord(lon, who usually is as pleasant
and professional is can be outside the car,
is at times a tiger behind the wheel.
So which is the real Jeff Gordon?
Here's what he had to say about the dif-
ferences in drivers off the track and on.
"I always like to think that on the race
track that's kind of your alter ego," he said,
adding that the environment on the track
affects behavior. "When you put the ittensi-
ty that goes on inside the race car, especial-
ly at a place like Bristol ... the patience
level, the frustration level, is to me equally
as intense us it's ever been."
iHe said that it's not just race drivers
who get put in situations where a different
side of their personality comes out.
"If you're in a calm, controlled environ-
mIent. then your emotions and your person-
ality is going to reflect on that," he said.
"You go into a highly intense environment
with a lot ot'f pressuree. i competitive
intense en'vironnment, it's going to affect
your personality and how you react to
But (Gordon said the bottom line answer
is that the person behind the wheel is clos-
or to whoi n driver really is.

"I think you really find out truly who you
are in those moments, probably more so
than you do outside the race car in a more
controlled environment," he said.
Racing also has a way of affecting rela-

International Speedway. (NASCAR photo)

tionships between drivers. People who
might otherwise find lots in common and
get along well end up with strained rela-
tions because of situations that occur on
the track.
Kevin Harvick said that's true of him
and Carl Edwards, a driver he's had a run-
in or two with over the years.
"Sometimes I just think people don't see
eye-to-eye on things," he said. "I enjoy rac-
ing on the race track with Carl (Edwards)
and that is all that matters.
"It doesn't really matter if he likes me or
if I like him, and I think we both race each
other, and off the race track doesn't really
matter as long as on the race track we race
hard and enjoy racing with each other."
Edwards, who has had several on-track
incidents with Brad Keselowski this season
including intentionally wrecking him two
times, also talked about the differences in
the way a driver acts inside and outside his
race car.
Interestingly, the in-car side of the usual-
ly affable Edwards seemed to come out
when asked to discuss the subject.
"It's really simple," he said. "I treat
everyone the way they treat me. I'm not
going to let somebody take advantage' of
me. That's all there is to it. I don't think
I've ever gone out and been the aggressor
of a situation or a bully or anything like
that, but I'm not going to let somebody
take advantage of me ...
"The people who know me and know
what I'm about, it makes pretty good sense
to them, but, for some reason, I guess some
people don't like that or don't understand

Said wins in Montreal by a hair

It hasn't happened in a long time, but on
Sunday at Montreal an underdog driver and
team finally won a major NASCAR race.
Boris Said. the road course specialist.
drove an underfunded Ford owned by Robby
Benton to victory, defeating Max Papis in a
near photo finish at the end of the NAPA
Auto Parts 200 at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
The race saw many of the top contenders
drop out before the finish, but on the final
lap, Said. Papis and hometown favorite
Jacques Villeneuve were still in contention.
Said took the lead when Robby Gordon ran
out of gas with one lap to go. Then Papis
nosed into the lead on the next-to-last corner
only to see Said storm back in the final turn.
The two ran what amounted to a drag race
to the finish line with Said nosing ahead by
a .012-second margin. It was the closest
Nationwide finish on a road course and the
fifth closest overall in series history.
"I don't think we had the fastest car today,"
Said told reporters after the race. "But we
definitely had the smartest race strategy
with Scott Zipadelli as the crew chief, the
first time I ever worked with him.
"We had great communication. He called a
great race, and it was really about managing
the race track, managing your brakes.
"I'm shocked ... overwhelmed. I thought I
was going to cry. but I didn't."
It was his first Nationwide win after nine
years of trying. He has one Camping World
Truck Series victory, at Infineon Raceway in
1998, but otherwise had been shut out in
NASCAR competition.

Kyle Busch keeps on winning
Love him or hate him, it's hard to dispute
Kyle Busch's ability to win NASCAR races.
After sweeping the weekend at Bristol
Motor Speedway, Busch added a fourth-
straight NASCAR win
on Friday at
Chicagoland Speedway
in the
225 Camping World
Truck Series races.
It was his fourth
truck triumph in nine
starts this season and it
gave him 17 major
NASCAR wins this sea-
son, including three in
Cup and 10 in the
Nationwide Series. Kyle Busch
Busch, driving his (NASCAR Photo)
own Kyle Busch
Motorsports Toyota, dominated the race,
leading three times for 121 laps, but he had
to hold off series points leader Todd Bodine
on a green-white-checkered-flag run to the
finish to seal the deal.
In his post-race interview, Busch acknowl-
edged that it takes more than a great driver
to run up the numbers he's posted this sea-
"It comes down to a great team and great
equipment and stuff like that," he said. "I've
really been fortunate to be put in some of
these situations, and it's a lot of fun to do it."

Smith re-signs to drive No.78
Colorado-based Furniture Row Racing has

on tracks is in the Midwest, where the NASCAR tracks
including Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Chicagoland
Speedway: Kansas Speedway, Michigan International
Speedway. and now Kentucky Speedway host races.
Wheeler also lumps Talladega Superspeedway in that
bunch since the Alabama track draws a large share of its
audience from north and west of the track.
Meanwhile. North Wilkesboro and Rockingham no longer
hoist NASCAR races, and Darlington and Atlanta have lost
one Sprint Cup race apiece.
While much of the justification for moving the race from
Atlanta centered on the empty seats at the March race,
many of the Midwest tracks. particularly Indianapolis
Motor Speedway: also have had trouble maintaining their
fan bhaos-s.
"If you take away another 25.000 or 30,000 from Indy, rm
not sure- you could make any money running a race there,"
Wheeler said.
Wheeler. like AMS president Ed Clark. said what AMS
needed most to fill its empty seats in March was a race date
later in the season. And they both point out that even an off
crwwd at the 124.000-seat AMS would more than fill many of
the other tracks on the circuit that have not lost race dates.
-Atlanta's problem has always been that its races have

t-rnhble ime to have a race. It's a gamble to run a race any-

But he -aid that if Atlanta had the date that Kentucky
;*.-runti up .with, it would be- a much different story.
'A nezht race in July in Atlanta would be magnificent." he

New season brings changes

school year brings multiple
changes to Wekixa High's golf
program as a new coach take,

years line-up has left. and an
attempt to held a girls team af-
ter a one-year absence is taking
"Coach Lowe (the presi-
ous coach) did a great job of
moving the program forward."
Scott Baker, the new Wekiva
coach said. "Our goal is to take
the remaining golfers and at-
tract more excitement for both
programs, which will improve
the quality. But we already
have a group who is recep-
tive to coaching and the talent
to win against the second-tier
As of the team's first match

The Wekiva girls played

Six golfers compete in reg-
ular-season matches. The four
lowest scores are added togeth-
er. The team with the lowest
score wins the match. Regular-
season matches are nine holes.

"'We do have some experi-

ers returning from last year."
Baker said. "So, \e have some
%work to do. but it isn't starting
from scratch. We aren't field-
ing a team without experience.
There are some assets to start
w ith. Our biggest disadvantage
is we just don't have the experi-
ence most other teams do. We
need to get more experience
playing varsity competition. It
will probably show early in the

the season progresses. I don't
expect it to mean we will win.
but our level of play will get
better with more time on the
course against varsity compe-
tition. We have some matches
against those second-tier teams
which will be important, be-
cause they are the ones we
need to beat to start building
some confidence, the feeling of
walking on the course knowing
we can win."
However, Baker also said
the golfers had a good grip
on not letting a bad hole get
to them. Often in high school
golf, a bad hole leads to a bad
round and coaches often talk
about it as a primary concern.

County health department issues alert

after person contracts West Nile Virus

The Orange County Health Depart-
ment (OCHD) is again emphasizing the
importance of protection against mos-
quito-borne diseases after receiving con-
firmation of the first human West Nile
Virus (WN\) disease case for this year
in Orange County. The individual was
diagnosed with West Nile virus encepha-
litis based on symptoms and confirmed
by laboratory tests. The individual. who
is recovering, reported no out-of-county
travel in the two weeks prior to becoming
As soon as this case was suspected.
Orange County Mosquito Control was
notified and increased surveillance and
control measures were conducted.
Throughout the year. OCHD works
with local agencies: including Orange
County Mosquito Control. the Florida
Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services, the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission. and state uni-
\ersities to monitor for the presence of
illnesses carried by mosquitoes including
WNV infections. Eastern Equine Enceph-
alitis tEEE). St. Louis encephalitis (SLE).
Malaria and Dengue Fe er. Central Flori-
da has had an increase in birds and horses
testing positive for EEE and WNV.
"It is important for people to a void
being bitten b\ mosquitoes. There are
simple measures to reduce the chances
of contracting a mosquito-borne illness."
said Dr. Kevin M. Sherin. director of the
Orange County Health Department.

Orange County residents and visi-
tors should remain diligent in protecting
themselves from mosquito bites by fol-
lowing the "5 D's." which include:
Drainage Check around your home to
rid the area of standing water where mos-
quitoes can lay their eggs.
DEET When the potential exists for ex-
posure to mosquitoes. repellents contain-
ing DEET (N.N-diethyl-meta-toluamide.
or N.N-diethyl-3-methylbtnzamide) are
recommended. Picaridin and oil of lemon
eucalyptus are other repellent options.
Always use repellents according to label
Dress Wear clothing that covers most of
your skin.
Dusk and Dawn Avoid being outdoors
when mosquitoes are most active.

Tips on Eliminating Mosquito Breed-
ing Sites
* Clean out eaves, troughs. and gutters.
* Remove old tires or drill drainage holes
in those used at playgrounds.
" Turn over or remo, e empty plastic pots.
* Pick up all beverage containers and
* Check tarps on boats or other equipment
that may collect w after.
* Pump out bilges on boats.
* Replace water in birdbaths and pet or
other animal feeding dishes at least once
a week.
" Change water in plant trays, including
hanging plants,. at least once a week.

* Remove vegetation or obstructions in
drainage ditches that prevent the flow of
Symptoms of mosquito-borne ill-
nesses such as West Nile virus disease,
St. Louis encephalitis, Eastern Equine
Encephalitis, Malaria, and Dengue Fever
may include headache, fever, fatigue, diz-
ziness. weakness, and confusion.
Physicians should contact their coun-
ty health department if they suspect an

Monitoring wild bird deaths can help
officials track the spread of some mosqui-
to-borne diseases. Anyone who discovers
a dead bird is encouraged to report it via
the Internet.
The bird mortality reporting system
is located on the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission's website

Golf: Children are

through benevolent undertak-
ings." said Jim Rutter, golf out-
ing committee chairman. "The
tournament raises funds for
handicap and financially dis-
advantaged children. With the
tournament, we can provide for
children in need of certain ser-
vices and a place for children to
be children."
Walters was well known
for his involvement in commu-
nity civic affairs and local phi-
lanthropy. He was particularly
interested in issues involving
the handicapped and less fortu-
Because the Elks were es-
tablished for the intent of play-
ing an active role in causes in-
volving those who need help,
the lodge's membership voted
to name the tournament after
the man who embodied a dis-
tinct and unique suitability in
serving the people of the com-
munity through the organiza-
tion's benevolent functions.
"The feeling one gets when
a handicapped child thanks him
or her for what has been done
to make the day a little brighter,
can't be put into words. No man
stands so tall as he who stops to
help a child." Rutter said.
"It has been a great suc-
cess in the past. We are looking
forward to making it a success
again because of what it does
for the community."
In particular, the Elks
primarily support Elks Youth
Camp and the Elks Children
Therapy Services.
As the name implies, the
Elks Youth Camp provides an
environment for children to
spend their summer engaged
in activities .which further ad-
S ance their grov.'th into produc-
tive adult,. The Elks Children
Therapy foundation provides
the financial means for children
with physical disabilities to un-
dergo the therapy they need.
Both sub-organizations offer
services to youth with no out-
of-pocket expenses to the fami-
lies. Both sub-organizations are
located in m matilla.
Ho-.,.eer. the Elks also
suppon several other aspects
of society ranging from schol-
arships for students to military

The day will include 18, .
holes of golf, the tuse of a canr,. a
barbecue buffet, several raffles,'
door prizes, a 50/50 drawing,
and several golf contests. As'
of press time, several extra lea-'
tures have been added to the'
tournament, including contests
for putting, closest to the line,
and closest to the pin. In addi-
tion for the first time, a $5.(X0)
cash prize will hbe awarded for
a hole-in-one on the 17th hole.
Gift certificates and merchan-
disc will be awarded as door
prizes. Food and drinks will be
available on the course for a

The Central Florida Youth Football League Apopka Lions kicked off the 2010 sea-
son with a roar Saturday, August 28, by decidedly winning all five games against
the Winter Springs Steelers and the Sanford Chiefs. In this picture. Harley Han-
sen runs the ball for the Lions as Michael St. Germain blocks. The Mighty Mites,
led up by head coach Tim Davis, scalped the Sanford Chiefs, 34-6. The Junior Pee
Wee Lions under head coach Donahue Stephenson continued the excitement by
shutting out the Steelers, 26-0. The Pee Wee Lions of head coach Keith Ussrey
took the Chiefs for a ride by shutting them out, 36-0. Then the Junior Midget Li-
ons, led up by head coach Eddie Williams, had a tight game the first half against
the Steelers, but wrapped it up nicely in the second half, 21 -6. The Midget Lions,
coached by James McMillian, melted the Steelers game by shutting them out, 42-
0. This next week, the Lions will face Lake Mary Dolphins, their cross town rivals
in this league for years. Last year in the regular season, coach Ussrey's team beat
the Dolphins during the regular season, but lost to them in a gut-wrenching semi-
final playoff game.

Just as happened all over
Central Florida, fans at the
Wekiva-Lake Brantley game
had to break out their umb-
reallas and ponchos Friday,
August 27, as rain played
havoc with high school foot-
ball games across the area.
These Wekiva fans stayed
true to their team despite
the rain and the 20-0 loss to
the Patriots. The Mustangs
will seek to open the regu-
lar season on a better note
when they travel to DeLand
today, Friday, September 3,
for a 7 p.m. game against the
Bulldogs. Tickets are $6 and
available at the gate.

Use the recipes below to express appreciation on Labor Day

Kitchen Kapers
By Ramona Whaley

Day is a day off from daily labors for
some. somebody in our households or
some restaurant has to be on the job as
usual. cooking our holiday meals. serv-
ing them and doing the usual after-meal
clean-up labor.
Besides these meals-preparing holi-
day laborers, many others in various
lines of work also will be reporting to
work for business as usual next Monday.
The nature of their professions or occu-
pations requires them to go on providing
their essential services for the rest of us
while we celebrate a day of rest from our
Surprising these friends and family
who labor on Labor Day with a delivery
of oven-fresh, lovingly-baked breads or
other home-cooked foods just before
lunch time is a great way to express ap-
preciation and gratitude to these dedi-
cated workers for staying on the job, so
the rest of us can enjoy a day off for play
and rest. It's as simple as doubling a
recipe for one-to-give and one-to-keep.
If the gift goes from one home chef
laborer's hands to another busy home
chef's home, the gesture of appreciation
and special recognition will be especial-
ly meaningful.
Check the recipes below for some
good labors-of-love edible gift ideas.
Appropriately, all these recipes are from
a nationwide group of volunteers who
greatly deserve thanks for laboring end-
lessly and joyfully to build housing for
people in need of good, decent shelter.
These recipes are from Habitat for
Humanity's fundraiser cookbooks, Sim-
ple Decent Cooking. Please do say
thanks to the Apopka chapter of Habitat
for Humanity volunteers for both these
recipes and for all the good their labor
of constructing homes for others is ac-
complishing here and around the world.

laboring or labor-free!

As pan of the propo-ed chang-
es. applicants for ERP- for projects,
that include irrigated landscape. golf
couures or recreational areas would
be required to develop and implement
a w ater concern action plan.
The water conservation plan
would include a %water conseration-
based irrigation plan. which would:
" Require separate irrigation zones
for turf and non-turf areas
- Limit the use of high volume irri-

gatior to no more than J percent of
the landscaped area on a residential or
commercial lot
Require measures to incre-se the ef-
ncienc, of irrigation ,' stems
* Applicants also would need to de-
sign their irrigation s. tems to use
lower quality sources of water. s-uch
as reclaimed water and storm water
when feasible, and specific require-
ments would need to be met for proj-
ects with wet detention ponds as panrt

The proposed changes would
also require that proper\ o\w ners' as-
sociations enforce \% after conser action
plans and that co',enants and restric-
tions \would not restrict the use of

The proposed rule changes also
would consolidate the pressing of

possible of nightmares against De-
Land. Taking to the field flat. unin-
spired and undisciplined. which led to
four lost fumbles and three intercep-
tions, the 34-0 loss to the Bulldogs
was almost as good as predetermined.
The lack of focus wasted no time
in taking its toll on Wekiva's oppor-
tunity for victory, as the offense was
called for an illegal shift penalty on
the first play from scrimmage. Then,
on the next play, Wekiva quarterback
Greg Amheim was sacked and fum-
bled the ball at DeLand's 27.
Shontrelle Johnson followed by
rambling from the line of scrimmage
into the end zone to give DeLand a 7-0
lead only three plays into the regular
season. The disastrous start to the
regular season came on the heels of
Wekiva digging itself into a 16-0 hole
against Lake Brantley while com-
mitting a total of four turnovers. The
Mustangs just couldn't come from
behind with the disadvantage of poor
field possession.
Last week, once again, Wekiva
dug itself into an early hole when it
took to the field against Lake Brantley
with little passion and awareness.
"We have to be more focused and
understand why we need to be if we
are going to compete with the teams
on our schedule," Parker said. "It was
very reminiscent of last year when we
put ourselves in a 16-0 hole early. We
have to correct it. We (the coaches)

thought we had. but obviously we
didn't. We are working on some things
this %week to correct it."
As good as Lake Brantley is.
Wekiva faces an opponent who re-
quires an even higher level of what
Parker talked about as DeLand ad-
vanced to the Class 6A state champi-
onship game last year and enters this
year in the top seven in every major
state ranking. With a 13-2 record in
2009, DeLand has placed itself among
the elite programs under the direc-
tion of head coach Kevin Pettis after
it went winless only three short years
".However, the game last week
was a learning experience," Parker
said. "It was a very valuable one made
even more so, because we open the
season against DeLand. Perhaps it
was a lesson we needed to be taught.
The benefit of facing a good team in
the Kickoff Classic the first against
an opponent is the team is forced to
play its best if it wants to be competi-
"Once again, the schedule is
one team after another which plays
at the highest level. Opening against.
Lake Brantley was an opportunity for
us to personally observe why teams
which are good ones are always ready
to play from the beginning of their
games. And if we are to be competi-
tive against the teams on our schedule
this year, we will have to change from
not being ready to play from the be-

ginning of the games."
And the schedule of one team af-
ter another which plays at the highest
of levels not only begins against the
hungry Deland Bulldogs after advanc-
ing to the state championship without
winning the title last ,ear. but against
a team with its star player returning
for his senior season.
With University of Florida com-
mit De'ante "Pop" Saunders. DeLand
has modified the wildcat offense to
be used as its basic offense combined
with a version of the wing-T and zone
blocking. In zone blocking, the line-
men partner up to block an area of the
field as opposed to a defender or spe-
cific defenders. All the linemen run to
a tract of the field and as thq ball car-
rier follows them, he chooses the hole
through which to go.
Saunders lines up in all the run-
ning back positions, as well as at quar-
terback, carrying the ball 210 times
for 1,687 yards last season. Often lin-
ing up to run a variety of quarterback
options,he gained significant yardage
from that position, as well as complet-
ing 11 of 27 pass attempts. He ran for
22 touchdowns and threw for another
Against Wekiva, in only about
three quarters of work, he began the
2009 season with 102 yards on only
15 carries. Saunders also plays defen-
sive back, grabbing nine interceptions
last year, including four during the

With the return of senior fullback
Achim Johnson. DeLand still has a
formidable twosome to effectively
run its version of the wildcat offense.
Johnson amassed a total of 406 rush-
ing yards on 61 carries last year.
However, with the graduation of
some of their offensive mates, the two-
some will be counted on even more. A
group of talented skilled players are
expected to see a more significant role
in the offense, but they are unproven.
But the team's strength doesn't
just rest with the flash and dash of its
skilled players being able to shift and
gracefully nimble their way through
the line. It was the combination of
DeLand's offensive line and the of-
fensive backfield which produced the
impressive numbers of a year ago.
Strong and big. the offensive line fea-
tures five seniors and is anchored by
Trey Pettis, the coach's son.
Defensively, the Bulldogs use
a five-man front and two defensive
backs with little complexity. The sec-
ondary plays man-to-man coverage
the majority of the time, which is an
advantage to the offense as it doesn't
have to deal with constantly changing
coverages. However, with the speed
and agility of its secondary coupled
with the unit's overall quickness, the
defensive backs get to the ball sooner
than most, negating the strengths of
many offenses.
"We will have to do what we were
supposed to do against Lake Brantley,

playing assignment football being at
the top of the list," Parker said. "De-
Land runs the same type of offense as
far as moving the defense past the ball
carrier. The defensive players move
outside of their zones. We will see
several packages and can't lose our
focus on who we are guarding.
"We have to know where we are
supposed to go and stay focused on
following the player we are supposed
to and make sure we gang tackle. Of-
fensively, we will have to do the ob-
vious, sustain drives to keep their
offense off the field and give our de-
fense time to rest. It is obvious, but we
didn't do it against Lake Brantley or
DeLand last year. We haven't had the
consistency it takes to be competitive
against DeLand."
Against Lake Brantley last week;
Wekiva did little on offense or defense
as it was out-gained by a 325-148
yardage mark. During the first half
when ihe game was decided, Wekiva
gained only 60 yards.
Its modified offense, under new
offensive coordinator Keith Williams;
was never able to get its running backs.
past the defensive line using its coun-
ter attacks and misdirection plays.,
With its running game unable to pro.'
duce anything, its passing game was
non-existent. 1 "
With that backdrop, tbnight'!i
game is Wekiva's second chance ti
turn it around.
But this time it counts.

The Apopka Chief, September 3, 2010. Page 11B

PEP: Apopka improved on both sides of the ball in the second half

Continuedfrompage 1B

Darters. the first half against Oak
Ridge ,was not pretty. Not only did
the Pioneers lead 19-13 at the half.
but things just %weren't looking good
for Apopka.
Even though Apopka's offense
had rushed for nearly 170 N ards on 30
carries, the Blue Darters had gained
those yard, in an unusual fashion.
Apopka had several long gains to
rack up some yardage. but also had
14 rushes of two yards or less.
Fortunately for the Darters. two
touchdown passes, including one with
just nine seconds left in the first half
accounted for Apopka's scoring in the
first two quarters. Quarterback Keon
Brooks hooked up with wide receiver
Synjohn Lilly tor the two scoring
Defensively. te Darters im-
proved in the second half, just as they
did on offense. However, it's still
going to take a while for this Apopka
defense to get back to anywhere close
to where it needs to be. Inexperience
is rampant on that side of the ball for
the Blue Darters. And, only time can
cure the inexperience factor.
On special teams, there were
some ups and downs.

Placekicker Alex Catron '.was
four-of-rise on extra points. barely)
missing his f.rst one. Knocking those
through e% er' time is important for
the Darters. He put a couple of his
kickoffs into the end zone. %while a
couple of others were misplayed b%
the Oak Ridge returned and caused
the Pioneers to start inside their own
5- ard line.
Tom Smith ran an Oak Ride
kickoff back 85 yards for a touch-
dow n. but the score was nullified by
an illegal block in the back. so that
is good news oershadowed by \cr\
bad new s for the Blue Darters.
Also. an Apopka punt was re-
turned to the 14- ard line by Oak
Ridge and the Pioneers scored on the
next play.
Injuries are also taking their toll
on Apopka. although some players
should be back oer the next week or
(5'. 0.

lIake Brantley at Apopka
This is one of the premier
opening-week games across Central
Florida as both are perennial pla. off
contenders and ha\ e strong running
While Apopka leads the series
w ith 15 victories in 27 games, it's
alw ayss been a good game. especially
o\ er the past decade or so. Apopka
has w on the last three games.
Lake Brantle. 's last w in w as a
7-3 triumph in 2006. Rick Darling-
ton's first game back as Apopka's
coach after he spent three years in
Valdosta. Ga.
I fully expect this game to be a
high-scoring affair. Lake Brantley's
shutout of Wekiva is impressive, but
the Blue Darters will present plenty
of problems for the Patriots, even
with defensive lineman Joey Grant
leading the way for Lake Brantley.
I could be wrong. but I think it
will probably take at least 30 points

to % in this game.
Despite some passing prowess in
their respective preseason victories,
Lake Brantley and Apopka still rely
on the run to prime the offensive en-
gine and that won't change.
For the Blue Darters, an inexpe-
rienced defense is a concern, but the
Apopka offense maN turn into its best
defense. Clock-hogging drives that
end in scores \\ ill be best for Apopka,
as the\ keep the Lake Brantles of-
fense on the sideline. You can't score
w without the ball.
In addition, Apopka's kicking
game. much impro\ ed with senior
Alex Catr n, must become a weapon,
I can see a handful of games this sea-
son \ here special teams in general
could be the difference between a win
and a loss for the Blue Darters.
I wouldn't be surprised to see
Lake Brantley head back to Seminole
County with a victory, but just don't
see it happening.
I think Apopka will find enough
defense to keep the Patriots at bay,
and the offense will give the defense
enough time on the bench to stay
fresh late in the fourth quarter when
the game is likely decided.
The score will be Apopka 33-
Lake Brantley 29.

9th Judicial Circuit Court, Orange County, Florida

What is foreclosure?
Foreclosure is a 'egal process by
whcr '.the lender attempts to re-
cover tr.e prcpe y in question as
a result of the homeo,vner s fa lure
to make payments
What is the RMFM Program?
The RMFM Program is the Resi-
dential Mortgage Foreclosure Me-
diation Program that has been or-
dered by the Florida Supreme
Court in Administrative Order 09-
54 and the Ninth Judicial Circuit
Court Administrative Order No.
2010-11 This program mandates
that all homestead foreclosure ac-
tions be sent to mediation before a
final judgment is issued.
What is mediation?
Mediation is a meeting between
the parties (the lender/plaintiff and
the borrower/defendant), including
any legal counsel they may bring,
with a neutral third party the me-
diator. The mediator is a Florida
Supreme Court Certified Media-
tor who has been appointed by the
court to determine whether you
and the lender can work out an
agreement to. prevent the foreclo-
sure of your home. The mediator
helps the parties reach a fair, ne-
gotiated agreement.

Manager ,',ill contact you based on
the information it receives from the
Why should I mediate my mort-
gage problem?
Many difficulties with mortgag-
es, either before an action is filed
(such as when an ARM reset is ap-
proaching or when a homeowner
is slightly behind in payments), or
while a foreclosure case is pend-
ing, can be resolved through rea-
sonable discussions. Mediation
brings all parties to the table to
discuss these problems with a
trained mediator. An experienced
mediator can help the parties find
a creative solution. Because mort-
gage lenders do not want to own
houses, they are generally will-
ing to talk with a borrower about
reasonable, practical solutions to
bring the mortgage current. Me-
diation, which provides you and
the lender to each speak privately
with the mediator as well as to dis-
cuss matters together, may result
in the parties reaching an agree-
ment without the potentially stress-
ful one-on-one negotiations you
and the lender may have without a

trained neutral mediator present.
Is there a cost to me to partici-
pate in the RMFM Program?
There ;s no cost to the homeo,,'n-
er for this program The lender or
loan servicing agent pays the re-
quired fees that cover the cost of
filing the action, mediation and the
financial counselor. If this does not
settle the case all or part of'the
managed mediation fee may be
assessed against the borrower if
the case proceeds to final hearing
before a judge.
Who are the mediators?
The independent foreclosure me-
diators are trained in mediation
and foreclosure law. They are
certified by the Florida Supreme
Will the mediator issue a deci-
sion in my case?
No. All the mediator can do is help
the parties look at the dispute ob-
jectively, discuss options for work-
ing out the mortgage, listen to
each side privately and together,
and help the participants find a so-
lution. A mediator does not make
any decisions, judgments, or red-
ommendations on the outcome of
the mortgage dispute, nor does
the mediator provide legal advice
to either party,
Do I-need an attorney to assist
with the Mortgage Foreclosure

Mediation Program?
No You may represent yourself.
However. you do have the right to
an attorney, should you choose to
engage one
Do all borrowers who signed
the mortgage need to attend the
mediation session?
Yes all borrowers must be present
at the mediation session. Should
all parties not be able to attend,
the borrower attending should
bring a completed Power of Attor-
ney for the borrowers) who will
not be able to attend (such as a
parent or spouse).
Is mediation confidential?
Yes. All discussions held during
mediation are confidential and
may not be disclosed.
What do I need to bring to me-
Prior to mediation, you are re-
quired to meet with a Financial
Counselor; this meeting will be
scheduled by the Program Man-
ager. You will complete a Financial
Disclosure form with the Financial
Counselor and submit it to the Pro-
gram Manager. You will need the
following items for your appoint-
ment with the Financial Counselor:
Previous Year's Tax Return
Proof of Income
Most recent Bank Statement
Current Utility Bills for Prop-

erty in Foreclosure
Copy of your Mortgage
Any other information that
may be helpful
Where will the mediation be
The mediation will be held at the
Orange County Courthouse. You
will be notified of the address and
room location prior to your media-
What happens if we settle?
If the lender and homeowner reach
an agreement, the mediator will
write a settlement agreement that
both the lender and the homeown-
er will sign. This settlement agree-
ment will be binding on the parties
and will be filed with the court.
What happens if we cannot set-
If the parties cannot settle at the
mediation, they may agree to con-
tinue negotiating at another date
and time. If the parties do not wish
to continue negotiating at another
time, the case will be returned to
the court.
What happens if I do not attend
the mediation?
If you decide not to attend the me-
diation, the case will be returned to
the court.
