Sippio, 31, and an accomplice, Santana Coats, 30, were booked into the Osceola County Jail Friday after they allegedly took a victim to a deserted area near Oren Brown Road in Kissimmee late Thursday, beat him, and threatened to kill him, according to the Osceola County Sheriffs Office. According to the arrest warrant, Sippio and Coats picked up Sergio Moore, 27, around 11 p.m. Friday from his apartment off Concord Landing in Orlando, where Sippio also lives. Sippio and Moore have known each other for four years, detectives said, and Moore had met Coats numerous times through Sippio. The t rio drove in Sippios dark blue Chrysler 300 to an area near Poinciana Boulevard and Oren Brown Road where Sippio allegedly pulled a gun from the center console and handed it to Coats. Moore attempted to exit the car through the back door and the window but was unable to open either due to the child locks. Once Sippio drove the trio through a gate with a No Trespassing sign and parked by a creek, Sippio and Coats allegedly took Moores cell phone and proceeded to hit him with the gun in the back of the head, kick and punch him. Coats allegedly pointed the gun at Moore and threatened to kill him. Moore told detectives he heard two clicks and thought it sounded like Coats had pulled the trigger twice. When the gun didnt go off, Moore got up and started running. Sippio chased him and told Moore to get back in the car when they heard police sirens. Once in the car, Moore told detectives he purposely wiped blood from his injuries on the inside of the vehicle to leave evidence in case Sippio and Coats killed him. Sippio allegedly threatened to kill Moore and told him the streets had respect for him according to reports. Moore was treated for lacerations to the top of his head and his left cheek, a scraped a swollen left wrist and a broken nose at Orlando Regional Medical Center. He required stitches to close the wounds to his head, according to the arrest warrant. Detectives brought Coats and Sippio in for questioning, but neither cooperated with the investigation, Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Twis Lizasuain said. Troubled football starIn 1999, Sippio was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, which was later dropped, according to court records. Additionally, in 2001, he was arreste d and charged with battery and criminal mischief. The battery charge was dropped; however;Sippio was given one year probation for the second charge. Predators Coach Bret Munsey said he did not know of Sippios most recent arrest after the team lost to the Jacksonville Sharks Friday and would not comment.

If youre reading this in a comfortable, middle-class home, what happened to Carlos DeLuna almost certainly could never happen to you. But everyone should care about DeLunas story because it lays bare Americas broken machinery of death, to quote former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun. After decades on the bench, Blackmun finally stopped upholding death sentences. He said the potential for error is too great in a system fraught with arbitrariness, discrimination, caprice and mistake. DeLuna was a poor, Hispanic nobody with a criminal record who was executed in Texas for a crime he didnt commit. Had DeLuna enjoyed some scintilla of status, wealth or power, he likely would have been exonerated, and the real murderer would have been found and charged. But the system in Texas does not go out of its way for people like DeLuna. He was put to death in 1989 for the 1983 knife slaying of Wanda Lopez at a convenience store where she worked in Corpus Christi. When DeLuna was arrested a short time after the murder, there wasnt even a microscopic drop of blood on his clothes or shoes, despite a crime scene where Lopezs blood was splattered on walls and pooled on the floor. A mans bloody footprint at the scene was never measured by detectives to find a match. Had police, prosecutors or defense lawyers done their job, they would have quickly uncovered evidence pointing to another man. Carlos Hernandez was a knife-toting violent felon who told multiple witnesses that he had committed the Lopez crime. But no one seriously investigated DeLunas unflappable protestations of innocence or his later claims that Hernandez was the culprit, leaving Hernandez free to brutalize others. Hernandez eventually died in prison in 1999 of cirrhosis of the liver. DeLunas case is back in the news because of the indefatigable detective work by Columbia Law School Professor James Liebman and a team of students. They spent six years interviewing more than 100 witnesses and reviewing every piece of evidence. Now their findings are compiled in a book-length spring edition of the Columbia Human Rights Law Review, titled Los Tocayos Carlos: An Anatomy of a Wrongful Execution. (Available in full at www3.law.columbia.edu/hrlr/ltc/) In Spanish, tocayo means namesake or twin. Hernandez joked that his stupid tocayo DeLuna was taking the fall for him. The two looked strikingly similar. DeLuna was put to death by a fallible system. Whatever you might think of capital punishment, everyone should be at least on the side of never executing the innocent. DeLuna is but one example of justice gone wrong; the case of Cameron Todd Willingham is another. Willingham was executed in Texas in 2004 for an arson fire that killed his three young children. An independent review indicated that the state relied upon faulty fire science to convict. These kinds of cases should cause all of us to rethink this countrys prolific use of the death penalty. The punishment has been abolished throughout Europe, except in Belarus, and some Americans in blue states are finally losing their taste for it. Connecticut repealed its death penalty in April after Illinois did so last year. Only 33 states still have the de ath penalty. Californians will be voting on eliminating it in November. Miscarriages of justice occur far more often than they are unearthed and recognized. A national registry of exonerations recently launched by the law schools at University of Michigan and Northwestern lists more than 100 people who were wrongfully convicted and sentenced to death. In 2006, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia argued that because mistaken convictions have been uncovered, Americas death penalty is justified. He declared with relish that the system of procedural safeguards actually works because no innocent person, not one, has been wrongfully put to death. If there has been, Scalia wrote, we would not have to hunt for it; the innocents name would be shouted from the rooftops by the abolition lobby. Excuse us, Justice Scalia, but here are two: CARLOS DELUNA and CAMERON TODD WILLINGHAM. These are two men whose stories should lead all of us to conclude, as Justice Blackmun did, that Americas death penalty experiment has failed. You can respond to Robyns column at blumner@sptimes.com.

By Fallan Patterson Staff W riter Valencia College Osceola Campus has unveiled its n ew innovative a ir-conditioning chiller plant, which is expected to save th e school $1 million annually in energy costs. The plant is part of the colleges $33 million building 4 project, spokeswoman Linda Shrieves Beaty said. The new plant, located on the backside of the college campus, features three 500-ton magnetic bearing, oil-free water chillers, which are estimated to be 40 percent more energy efficient than standard centrifugal chillers. The new magnetic bearing technology is on the leading edge of chiller design worldwide, said Bruce Tindale, a representative of Carroll Air Systems, which installed the chillers in Valencias new plant. The chillers use water as a refrigerant, lowering the temperature of the liquid to ultimately cool students, facility and staff in the classrooms. The new cooling towers use less water and require fewer chemicals and no annual oil sample tests to treat the water. The new water technology being has saved 25 million gallons of water and $275,000 over the last two years, according to Robert Hickman, HAVC energy manager for Valencia College. Hickman spent more than a year researching the technological elements and visiting similar chiller plants, such as the one the Orlando Science Center has, before settling on the campus plant. I wanted to know if the information I read on the websites was true, Hickman said about visiting plants all over the state and the country. I wanted to know if they were really doing the numbers. Those numbers, the amount of kilowatts per ton the c hillers use, are essential to the colleges goal of the plant lowering campus carbon footprint and being energy and cost efficient. The college wants to see the plant do .5 kilowatts per ton with the new plant, compared to 2.15 kilowatts per ton the old plant was producing. After six weeks of being online, Hickman said the plant is averaging 1.54 kilowatts per ton. For large systems, this is one of the most efficient ways, he said. Were providing better service to our customers, which are the students. Clay Harem, project manager of Westbrook, an Orlando-based air conditioning company, was excited about the challenge of building the plant and how t horough Hickmans research was. Its refreshing to have an owner who understands how all this equipment works and was hands-on, he said. This is going to be a state-of-the-art model of efficiency. The chiller plant is lower maintenance than the aging plant it replaced, which constantly had to be reset or parts replaced. The new plant r equires minimum staffing to run it and, due to the technology, is expected to need little maintenance. Valencia has already integrated the new magnetic bearing chiller technology on its East and West campuses, which has saved the college $1 million in energy costs. They plan to build a similar chiller plan on their Lake Nona Campus plant, Hickman said. Valencia College unveils innovative air-conditioning chiller plant News-Gazette Photo/Andrew SullivanAn interior view of some of the state-of-the-art green technology behind the new chiller plant on the campus of Valencia College in Kissimmee. The new unit operates using less natural resources and at a much higher efficiency than conventional units, which consume more water and electricity during operation.

In the 15 seasons preceding 2012, including their championship season of 2003, they never ranked higher than 14th out of the 16 National League teams. A new stadium in 2012 Marlins Park might help. Their old home, a converted football stadium, has to have set the record for most names: Joe Robbie Stadium, Pro Player Park, Pro Player Stadium, Dolphin Stadium, Dolphins Stadium, Land Shark Stadium, and Sun Life Stadium. Name a Boston Red Sox pitcher who won 300 games. You cant, because theres never been one. How about 200? Believe it or not, the answer is still no. The two winningest pitchers in Red Sox history tied at 192 victories are Cy Young and Roger Clemens. Both won well over 300 games in their careers, but not with Boston. So get this when knuckleballer Tim Wakefield retired after the 2011 season, he did so as the third winningest pitcher in Red Sox history, with 186. NASCAR fans know that the 2011 Cup chase was the closest ever, with Tony Stewart nipping Carl Edwards in a tiebreaker. In so doing, Stewart kept an amazing streak alive. In more than three decades of racing from go-karts to Sprint cars to IndyCar to NASCAR he had never finished second when involved in a tight battle for a championship. And get this about Edwards: his average finish of 4.9 in the 10 playoff races was the best ever, even though Stewarts five wins gave Smoke the edge. I bet you didnt know... Stop in for details....

By Peter Covino Lifestyles Editor Hurricane season doesnt officially start until Friday, but Osceola County and Central Florida got a small taste of what hurricane season can be like with Tropical Storm Beryl dropping more than an inch of rain over much of the area Memorial Day. For only the second time in more than 100 years, two tropical storms have formed before the official start of hurricane season with Beryl making landfall near Jacksonville late Sunday. Unless your holiday plans included a trip to the beach, most Osceola County residents probably werent bothered too much by Beryl. Most of the holiday weekend was sunny and hot, with periods of rain only entering the picture Monday. The National Weather Service reported little more than a half-inch of rain from its Poinciana observation station. Kenansville reported 1.03 inches of rain from the storm. No other Osceola County weather observation sites reported data to the weather service. The Weather Underground website, www. wunderground.com, reported 1.14 inches of rain from the storm from its Indian Wells observation point in Kissimmee. Wind was not much of a factor, either. The Kissimmee Gateway Airport reported a wind gust of 23 mph, according to the National Weather Service during the storm. Indian Wells reported a gust of 28 mph. While Osceola County was received only a few rain bands from the storm, other areas of the state got some major drenching. The largest precipitation total in the state went to an area just south of Live Oak, where 12.65 inches of rain was reported through Tuesday morning. Jacksonville, close to the storms center, reported 3.52 inches of rain. Gainesville had its wettest May day since 1985 with 3.25 inches of rain. The weather service reported Beryl was mostly good news for the northern part of the state and Georgia, which have been experiencing drought conditions. The remnants of Beryl were slowly leaving the United States mainland Tuesday but rain was still affecting parts of Georgia and the Carolinas through Wednesday. The tropical depression was expected to regain some strength as it churned in the Atlantic off the coast of North Carolina and Virginia today, but probably only would be a threat to shipping and possible beach erosion.

By Fallan Patterson Staff Writer Registered felon Malcolm Jamaal Robins was arrested Friday and charged with attempted murder after police said he shot at a woman from his car as she and her family walked down U.S. Highway 192. Ivette Lopez told Osceola County Sheriffs Office deputies she, her boyfriend, Hector Carlo, and their 1year-old son were walking down west U.S. Highway 192 around 1 p.m. Friday, when Robins pulled up in a brown SUV, pulled out a gun, shot at her and sped away. A small caliber shell casing was recovered by investigators at the scene of the incident. Lopez told deputies there had been bad blood between Carlo and Robins for some time and it had grown worse over time. Carlo told deputies he re fused to prosecute and wanted to handle everything his own way, adding he and Robins have issues about Lopez and had gotten into an physical altercation where Carlo had knocked out Robins. Carlo further told investigators Robins was attempting to take re venge because of the fight by shooting at Lopez. Officers located Robins, 20, at his mothers house, 2710 Bradley Dr. in Poinciana, and found the brown Chervolet SUV matching Lopezs description. The vehicle is registered to Robins mother. While at the home, deputies took into evidence a locked safe and an empty gun holster. Robins did not cooperate with the investigation, but based on the victims statement and another witness statement; and evidence recovered, Robins was charged with attempted murder and booked into the Osceola County Jail on no bond. During the investigation, deputies discovered Robins also had a felony warrant for a previous burglary, on which he was also arrested. According to court re cords, Robins previously was sentenced to 30 days in the Osceola County Jail after an arrest in Feb. 2011 for possession of cannabis less than 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia. Additionally, Robins was arrested in June 2011 and charged with delivery of cocaine, resisting an officer without violence, possession of cocaine with intent to sell, possession of cannabis with intent to sell and possession of a firearm with an altered serial number. He was sentenced to 180 days in jail for resisting an officer without violence and possession of cocaine with intent to sell. The other charges were dropped.Not getting the Osceola News-Gazette at home?If you have signed up to get the Osceola NewsGazette and it is not being delivered, contact Kathy Beckham, circulation manager, by phone at 321-402-0401 or 407846-7600, Ext. 101, or by email at kbeckh am @osceolanewsgazette com A three-hour discussion on racial and cultural diversity in Osceola County has set the stage for more than just talk in the future. Thats the assessment from the Rev. Alexis Wallace, pastor of the Global Evangelistic Center in Kissimmee, following the May 24 session held at the Kissimmee Utility Authority boardroom. We brought together a group of local church and civic leaders for the Agape Summit as we seek to build bridges for better relationships between our different racial and cultural groups, Wallace said. We are standing in the gap for this city working, praying and believing for peace and sincere friendship between our different people. He said the leadership of the group would continue to meet to develop a more definite plan to combat racism and discrimination locally. As moderator of the discussion, Wallace posed two questions to the panel asking their thoughts and personal experiences on the reality of racism and their opinion on if there is an equal opportunity for advancement for all races and cultures educationally regarding employment opportunities. As we live and grow in the county together we have seen a lot of changes, said Ron Hardee, president of the Osceola NAACP. There is change going on, but I dont think change is coming fast enough. Its time we stepped forward and do more to cause change instead of sitting back and waiting for change to happen. Pastor Melvin Jenkins, of Harvest Time Ministries in Kissimmee, agreed with Hardee and added, as I look around this room we are not represented by the churches of this community. And the churches are the ones who will change this community. Kissimmee Vice-Mayor Art Otero said he felt this is a time for the community to come together as one. A fruitful city, a successful city is one where all people come together and work to make a difference, he said. The church is the light. (It) is the guidance that we need in our city. When the church gets involved and their voice is heard you can see a lot of changes going on. One of the panelists, Pastor Pedro Montalvo, of the House of God in Kissimmee, moved to Florida in 2003. I had experienced classism in New Jersey, he said. But my first exposure to racism was here in Osceola County. Racism gets down to the core of fear. We fear the unknown. We realize the problem is there, but have not paid the a ttention to it that it deserves, he added. The pastor of Casa Shalom Messianic in Kissimmee, Luis Hernandez, called on those at the meeting to show the love of Jesus Christ to all they come in contact with. If I dont show love for my brother and we dont show love for each other, he said, racism will still be there. Wallace said he would continue to meet with leaders of some of the larger denominational churches in an effort to get more participation in future efforts to meet racism and discrimination head-on. I was pleased to see and hear the feedback from our panel as well as those in the audience, he said. I believe we have started a movement and we will continue this. The church is alive and well but sometimes there are issues and topics (such as those brought forward) that need to have greater priority. State of racial, cultural diversity in Osceola County discussed Registered felon charged with attempted murder after shot fired at womanand the Kissimmee Fire Department. In all, five engine companies, two ladder companies, six r escue units, four chief officers and one safety officer were on the scene, Johnston said. The blaze was extinguished two hours after crews arrived. The business suffered moder ate damage to its contents and structure. Surrounding businesses r eceived light damage due to smoke extension, Johnston said. The fire was determined to be accidental, starting near the front door due to a faulty extension cord.

Page A8, SPORTSSPORTS Follow us on Twitter www.twitter.com/OsceolaSportsCounty grid squads wrap it up Spring football By Ken Jackson For the News-Gazette Eight years ago, Justin Hilton was chasing opponents on the football field with his Harmony High teammates. Many of them were headed for the end zone the Longhorns were winless in the schools 2004 inaugural season. Hilton often wished he was inside on the hardwood, playing basketball. Fast forward to the weekend of April 29 when Hilton, now a veteran of the Harmony, Butte Community College and Indiana State gridirons, was signed as a free agent by the Cincinnati Bengals after the NFL Draft ended. Hilton, a receiver, has worked out the past two weeks at the Bengals OTAs (optional team activities) at Paul Brown Stadium. He hopes to be the next Osceola County athlete to make an NFL roster, following players such as St. Clouds Brent Fullwood (Green Bay) and Osceolas Markus Paul (Chicago) and Tito Paul (Denver). Hilton was at Harmonys spring football game last Friday, talking with his former coaches and accepting congratulations for becoming the first Longhorn to reach the NFL. Its an awesome experience, something you dream about, he said. The OTAs are great because it gives you a chance to learn from guys who have been in the league five years. Before the draft, Hilton showcased his skills and his 6-3, 195-pound frame at a Pro Day at Indiana State and in private workouts for the Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers. He said he had word from a few teams that he was on their draft boards, and to watch the later rounds of the draft for his name to be called, which he did with his family in St. Cloud. We just watched Saturday happen, he said. During the day I got a few texts and calls from coaches telling me to be ready. Then the last pick came, and maybe two minutes later I got a call from the Bengals. He said that during that 0-for-2004 Harmony season, he never imagined hed one day be suiting up in NFL colors. I was a basketball guy, and that was my first year, Hilton said. I was just drawn to the physical part of the game. In 2005, he was switched from defensive back to receiver a fateful move by Coach Tyler Andersons staff. The Longhorns won 12 games in Hiltons junior and senior seasons combined, and he developed a nose for the end zone, with 19 touchdown catches and 60 receptions that totaled 1,159 yards. Those numbers didnt bring offers from the major college programs, so he headed to Butte Community College in Oroville, Calif., and helped lead the Roadrunners to the 2008 National Junior College championship. From there he landed at Indiana State and again became a scoring machine (72 catches, 1,224 yards, 11 TDs in 2010-11). Despite arriving in Cincinnati as a free agent rather than a draft pick, Hilton refuses to acknowledge that he is a longshot to make the squad. I think I have a good shot to make it, he said. Maybe Ill come in and make a contribution on special teams. Plus I know that they have four and five-wide packages, so Im setting myself up to be an impact player in the preseason. Scouting reports from workouts he participated in say Hilton has both the speed to stretch defenses and the vertical ability to out-jump defenders. As a receiver in the league you have to be ready to make a defense pay when they stack the box (against the run) or when they try to play man on the outside, Hilton said, sounding like a grizzled NFL veteran already. Former Orlando Predators head coach Jay Gruden is the Bengals offensive coordinator which gives Hilton something else to be excited about. My grandparents have been (Predators) season ticket holders for a long time, so this is pretty cool, he said.Justin Hilton enjoyed a warm homecoming reception Friday at Harmony Highs spring football game at Longhorn field. Hilton played defensive back and receiver for the Longhorns during the schools first three seasons, from 2004-06. He was signed by the Cinncinati Bengals in April as a free-agent receiver.News-Gazette Photo/Rick Pedone By Rick Pedone Sports Editor With the helmets and pads packed away until regular season practice starts Aug. 6, football coaches in Osceola County can reflect on the outcomes of the spring football games. Three games last Friday wrapped up the spring drills. Liberty tied Cypress Creek at 17; Eustis beat Harmony, 41-6, and Orange City University blanked Poinciana, 54-0. Last Thursday, Gateway beat Florida Air, 26-8, Lake Gibson topped Osceola, 37-20, and Ocoee downed St. Cloud, 30-3. Liberty Coach David Benson got his first look at the offense run by converted running back Jalen Benn. Overall, Benson liked what he saw. For the most part everything went well. We moved the ball at will, but we made a couple of bad turnovers, Benson said. We put our defense in bad positions a couple of times, and they responded well. Benson said Benn, a rising senior, made a few mistakes in his first start at quarterback, but he adjusted. He d id everything we asked him to do. Our offense was extremely limited, but he handled it pretty well, Benson said. The Chargers coach thinks another promising running back has emerged when rising junior Steven Phillips scored both Liberty touchdowns. He was on the roster as a sophomore and had a little trouble adjusting to the speed of the game, but hes made a lot of progress, Benson said. Should incoming freshman Isaiah Wilson prove capable of handling quarterback next season, allowing Benn to return to running back, Benson envisions a lot of potential for the offense. He (Wilson) wouldnt have to come in and be Tom Brady. We have a lot of effective weapons around him that would take the pressure off, Benson said. Phillips has pretty good size (6-0, 195) and he would be a good complement for Jalens quickness and speed outside. Benson said the defense shifted to a 3-3 stack formation over the spring and played well. Its a little different than the 50 in that you dont walk the outside (linebackers) up, they stay back kind of like strong safeties, Benson said. A lot of it depends on the team that you are playing. We lined up in the 50 for a few plays. The defensive front of rising seniors Mylam Peters and Jerrod Joseph and rising junior Cruz Madero looked good Friday, Benson said. The secondary also looked capable with Donald Sims Sylvester and Reuben Caraballo leading the way, Benson said. Charles Vanstralendorf kicked a 20-yard field goal and two PATs for the Chargers. Harmony Coach Jerrad Butler winced often while watching his offense turn the ball over five times against Mount Dora. Three of those turnovers led to 21 Hurricanes points. Not to make excuses, because the fact of the matter is that we have to play better, but take away the turnovers and its probably 7-0 at the half and still competitive, Butler said. You cant turn the ball over five times and give the other team 21 points and expect to be successful. But, the turnovers did happen and it was 27-0 at the half, so the Longhorns will have plenty to think about before turning to practice in August. Butler saw bright spots. We made 14 tackles for losses, so we did some good things, he said. Were going to have to put those plays together for a longer period of time. Running back Forrest Osbourne provided a spark for the offense, Butler said. He ran hard. I thought our running backs did a decent job. Quarterback Sterling Hicks scored Harmonys touchdown on a second-half keeper. Butler saw other positives. I thought Colton Keene and Riley Nicholson at linebacker did what we expected them to, and I thought the lines for the most part did a good job, he said. Butler said the encouraging part of spring practice was having a large turnout. I liked that, and I liked the work ethic, Butler said. Theres no question that Im disappointed for the kids with the way it turned out, but this is a work in progress. We saw what we needed to work on, and well improve. Poinciana was out-manned against Orange City University, Coach Corey Fleming said. It went about as expected, he said. We only dressed 20, and we only had eight kids come out to work from January to May. Hopefully it was a good lesson for them and they will come to work in the summer. The Kickoff Classics are Aug. 24.Harmony Coach Jerrad Butler watches the action during Fridays spring game against Mount Dora at Longhorn field.News-Gazette Photo/Rick Pedone Liberty earns a tie; Harmony, Poinciana fall in spring gamesJustin Hilton was one of Indiana States top receivers during the past two seasons.Photo/Special to the News-Gazette Harmonys Justin Hilton working toward Bengals roster spot next season

But just as youre multi-tasking in your life, youll also need to address multiple financial goals. In seeking to accomplish your k ey objectives, you may be asking yourself a variety of questions, including the following: Should I contribute as much as possible to my IRA and 401(k)? In a word, yes. Your earnings on a traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and a 401(k) grow on a tax-deferred basis, so your money can accumulate faster than it would if placed in an investment on which you paid taxes every year. Plus, since you typically make 401(k) contributions with pretax dollars, the more you contribute, the lower your taxable income. And your traditional IRA contributions may be tax-deductible, depending on your income. If you meet income guidelines, you can contribute to a Roth IRA, which provides tax-free earnings, provided you meet certain conditions. Should I put away money for my kids college education? Its not easy to fund your retirement accounts plus save money for your childrens college education. Still, college is expensive, so if you feel strongly about helping to pay for the high costs of higher education, you may want to explore college funding vehicles, such as a 529 plan, which offers tax advantages. Should I pay down my mortgage or invest those funds? Most of us dream of freeing ourselves from a mortgage someday. So, as your career advances and your income rises, you may wonder if you should make bigger mortgage payments. On one hand, theres no denying the psychological benefits youd receive from paying off your mortgage. However, you may want to consider putting any extra money into your investment p ortfolio to help as you work toward your retirement goals. Work with your financial advisor to determine what may be most appropriate for your portfolio. Do I have enough insurance in place to protect my family? You may hear that you need seven or eight times your annual income in life insurance, but theres really no right figure for everyone. You may want to consult with a financial advisor to determine how much life insurance is appropriate for your needs. Am I familiar with my parents financial situation and estate considerations? Now is the time to communicate with your parents about a variety of issues related to their financial situation and estate plans. The more you know, the better positioned youll be to provide assistance and support if and when its needed. Just to name one example, you should inquire of your parents if theyve designated a durable power of attorney to make financial decisions for them in case theyre ever incapacitated. By answering these questions, you can get a handle on all the financial issues you face at your stage of life. It may seem challenging, but taking the time now can help you better position yourself to reach your financial goals. Courtesy of Edward Jones, Robert Rosen, Fi nancial Advisor, 109 E. Monument Ave, Kissim mee, 407-870-5464 The Poinciana Economic Development Alliance (PEDA) will present a Job Fair Saturday, June 9. This event will be held at Liberty High Schools cafeteria from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This job fair will be focused but not limited to construction jobs. Participants who will be hiring construction-related workers are Robins & Morton (Poinciana Medical Center sub-contractors), Manhattan Construction Incorporated (Poinciana Boulevard sub-contractors) and area sub-contractors for miscellanies projects. Other hiring participants are Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate, the Polk County Sheriffs Department, Toho Water Authority, Internet sales associates and other local employers. PEDAs intent with sponsoring these job fairs (this is the second) is to connect Poinciana residents with specific jobs and career opportunities available in the area. Hiring will not take place on a first-come, first-served basis. Bring your rsum, dress for success and be a part of the new Poinciana. PEDA held a public meeting the evening of May 23 at the Liberty High School cafeteria. Osceola County Commissioner Brandon Arrington was the guest speaker and discussed the Lynx transportation issues plaguing Poinciana residents who depend on these services daily. In addition to serving Poincianas district 3 in Osceola County, Arrington was selected as Metro Plan Orlando chairman in February. MetroPlan Orlando is the Metropolis Planning Organization (MPO) Orange, Osceola and Seminole Countiesthe Orlando urban areas. MetroPlan is ultimately responsible for implementing the transportation planning process. Polk County is not considered part of this planning area. Since half of Poinciana is Polk County, this is an issue for residents. Many Polk County residents rely on Lynx buses, which now expand into Polk County. Polk County itself has numerous bus transportation servers, none of which service Poinciana Polk residents trying to get to Orange and Osceola areas. These residents rely on Lynx bus service. The LYNX schedule will provide bus service in and about Poinciana every halfhour. While that is appreciated, it simply is not enough. We need more buses. Residents who attended last weeks meeting expressed the fact that many times during peak hours there are no seats or space for passengers. By the time it reaches Osceolas part of Poinciana, there is no space. The facts are that Lynx, like most everything these days, is strapped for money. Osceola County already contributes. Polk County does not. At the PEDA meeting on May 23, board member and community leader Nestor Nuesch suggested Polk County be approached, Quantify and share the number of riders (from Polk County) on the buses. He said. Fellow board member Annette BrownBest made it even simpler. Give them the bill! she said. This is not to say that any part of Poinciana should be discouraged or discriminated against. We are one community strong. Do not let that little county line divide this community. Transportation is a vital part of Poinciana. The Poinciana Parkway is a coup, but do not forget those who rely on public transportation. In these times, it is a major factor in economic growth. Its time for Polk County to show Poinciana it hasnt been forgotten.

A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. Thats why its critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will most certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable preinspection yourself if you know what youre looking for, and knowing what youre looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection has been compiled which explains the issues involved. To order a FREE Special Report, visit www. inspectionorlando.com or to hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report call toll-free 1-800-281-5303 Ext. 1003.

HOMEFINDER HOMEFINDER Section C REAL ESTATE IN OSCEOLA & SURROUNDING COUNTIES www.aroundosceola.com May 31, 2012 HOME IMPROVEMENT Page C2 CLASSIFIEDS Pages C3 C5 Paint can do more than change the color of a room it can add texture, pattern and visual interest. Todays decorative painting techniques are simple and sophisticated alternatives to wallpaper, and a far cry from the dated sponge painting from years past. Whether youre a painting pro or a DIY beginner, heres how you can transform a room with a few simple strokes. Textured techniquesGive any room an extra bit of oomph with textured techniques. Easy to do and requiring few supplies, theyre an excellent option for new DIYers. One simple technique is simulating the texture of fabric on walls it makes any space feel warm and homey. To add a more masculine feel to a bachelor pad or study, use paint to create the appearance of leather on walls apply a mix of glaze and brown paint to walls using a scrunched-up plastic bag to give the right texture. Once it is dry, use a roller to add a layer of brown glaze over it. You can also use textured techniques to easily create the look of linen for a light and airy feel, or to transform your walls to seem like wood or stone for an outdoorsy atmosphere. A technique called combing is also great for those new to decorative painting its simple to do and mistakes are easy to fix. To comb your walls, paint your base coat of color and let it dry completely, use a paint roller to apply a thin layer of clear glaze, and comb through the glaze with a special paint comb. If you dont like your first attempt, simply apply another coat of glaze with your paint roller and start over. Sophisticated stripesSimple but stylish, stripes are an easy way to update your space. Vertical stripes create the feeling of high ceilings, making rooms feel spacious, while horizontal stripes add a modern, funky touch. For a subtle look, paint two-toned stripes in neutral hues such as cream and taupe or use the same color in two different sheens (i.e. glossy and flat). For a more dramatic redo, choose two contrasting colors, create multicolored stripes or paint stripes in a variety of widths to add extra interest. When painting stripes, measure carefully and use a laser level to apply tape to ensure the lines are straight. Always remember to paint your base coat with the lightest color first since it will eventually become one of the stripes, and it is much easier to paint your darker colors over the lighter base. Then add the darker colored stripes, in order from lightest to darkest. To create stripes with the sharp, crisp lines youre looking for, choose FrogTape brand painters tape. Treated with patented PaintBlock Technology, FrogTape reacts with the water in latex paint to create a barrier that prevents paint bleed and helps ensure clean lines. For stripes, FrogTape is available in a Delicate Surface technology it is great for decorative painting because it can be applied to fresh paint after only 24 hours. Contemporary chevronA chic alternative to traditional stripes, chevron, or zig-zag stripes, is a way to make a big impact on your room with minimal effort. Create a pattern of m any chevron stripes, or go for major drama with fewer, wider stripes. Paint the pattern around the entire room, or add chevron to one focal wall. To get the look, use pencil or chalk to create a grid on the wall; use a level to make sure the grid lines are straight. Then, apply painters tape FrogTape Delicate Surface is a good choice for this technique, too to create the chevron pattern, utilizing your grid lines as a guide. After the painters tape is applied firmly to the surface, paint in-between the taped design. Lastly, make sure to remove the tape as soon as you are finished painting. Stylish stencilsMake an ordinary space extraordinary with stencils. Nowadays, stencils are available in almost any shape and size. Buy them precut at your local craft store or online at etsy.com, or create your own for a design that is completely unique. Add floral designs for a feminine look, or go classic with preppy polka dots. Stencil a chandelier shape for instant sophistication or paint a meaningful quote to add a personal touch to your space. Geometric patterns, damasks and paisleys also add spice to boring walls. Some retailers even offer wall size stencils, helping you to cover a large area with ease.Whether you consider yourself shabby chic, prefer sleek modern looks or adhere to a more traditional style, decorative painting is a simple way to add flair to any space. With just a few supplies and a free weekend, you can transform any room into a space you adore. Courtesy of ARAcontentHow to transform room with a few decorative strokes Holland, Mich. word of mouth.

How can I make sure I get what I pay for? -Clarence T., Philadelphia A: There are several things you can do to make sure a contractor is legitimate. Here are a few tips to keep in mind: --Take your time deciding: Unless the repair is an emergency, you have the luxury of getting more than one estimate from more than one contractor. Get at least three quotes before deciding. --Check with the Better Business Bureau to see if any complaints were lodged against the contractor and how the contractor responded to those complaints. --Ask the contractor if you can contact past customers. --Ask for the contractors license, as well as proof of workers compensation insurance. --Get everything in writing: A statement of when the work will begin and end, how much materials will cost and what materials will be used, how much labor is involved and what that will cost, whether permits will be required, and whether the work must meet building codes. --Do not allow work to begin until you have signed a contract you both agree on. --Never pay in advance, and do not pay in cash: write a check or use a credit card instead. --Insist on inspecting all work yourself (or have a representative inspect it for you) before providing the final payment. If a problem crops up during or after the repair job, try to resolve the issue with the contractor first. Reputable contractors will try to make it right. If you cant resolve the problem or cant find the contractor, you can lodge a complaint with the BBB or contact your state or citys consumer protection department. HOME TIP: Word of mouth is still the best way to find a good contractor. Ask neighbors, family and friends if theres a contractor they can recommend.
