By Fallan Patterson Staff Writer With this weeks plummeting temperatures, some needy Osceola County students may have gone to school without a jacket or long pants, or had to stay home because they didnt have appropriately warm clothing. Area schools and the Education Foundation of Osceola County passed out coats, sweaters, long pants and even shoes to help children whose families may have had to decide between purchasing food or a jacket for the few days a year that even the Sunshine State gets chilly. Its happening all over the district, Marcie Hill, director of the Foundations programs, said. A lot of our students dont go to school on cold days. They miss valuable days of school and then they arent prepared. Or theyre coming to school in dresses and shorts and then theyre uncomfortable. The Education Foundation assists with this need with the Kids Closet, a program designed to provide needy Osceola County students with personal hygiene products and new clothing, free of charge. Osceola County School District guidance counselors, social workers and Families in Transition liaisons identify students in need of clothing and hygiene items, then shop at Kids Closet for the items needed. The Kids Closet has been such as resource, supplying coats, heavy sweatshirts and gloves in all sizes for our students in need, Elizabeth Lane, a district social worker, said. The clothing goes immediately to the child who, without Kids Closet, may stand shivering on a street corner, early in the morning, waiting on their school bus.

Vote at www.around osceola.com Results from the Oct. 27 Question of the week: What are you scared most of in Florida? By Ken Jackson Staff Writer A pair of longtime Osceola County bankers is helping bring local, community banking back to the area. Charlie Rogers and Tom White, who were in on the ground floor of starting the First National Bank of Osceola in the 1980s, have returned to the smaller, community bank model that First National, which eventually became part of the CenterState Bank organization, got away from as it grew and merged with other institutions. Rogers and White now serve as vice president of Commercial Lending and senior vice president respectively, of Florida Traditions Bank, which has set up its temporary office in St. Cloud. Ground has already broken for the banks Kissimmee branch off Central Avenue near Osceola Regional Medical Center, and they currently seek a plot of land for a 5,000square-foot permanent St. Cloud location. Florida Traditions began in 2007 and is expanding its footprint into Osceola County from its six locations in Polk and Pasco counties.

Another is coming to Kissimmee. By Fallan Patterson Staff Writer Crime is slightly down overall in Osceola County for the first half of 2012, according to semi-annual crime statistics released Thursday from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The Osceola County Sheriffs Office reported a decrease of 3 percent in their crime index from January to June 2012 compared to the same time frame in 2011, according to the report, while St. Cloud reported no percentage change for the same time period. Law enforcement working together with the community creates a partnership that results in a safer Osceola County, Sheriff Bob Hansell said. The Osceola County Sheriffs Office has taken a proactive and progressive approach to public safety. Intelligence driven policing, tactical and thorough responses from patrol, crime analysis and intelligence information, aggressive investigation techniques and working with the community to report suspicious activity and educate citizens on crime prevention are all factors that have led to the decline. Kissimmee experienced the only uptick in the county, reporting a 1.5 percent increase in crime from January to June 2012, with 1,894 incidents reported, compared to the same time period in 2011. Kissimmee Police Chief Lee Massie, who was hired Oct. 1, attributed the increase to an 84 percent hike in motor vehicle parts theft and grand theft auto contributing 21 percent to the crime index. I cant speak to how we got to these numbers but theres a trend going on and Im a big proponent on the use of analysis, he said. Massie plans to zero in on where the concentration of these crimes are occurring, following up with individuals in those areas known for these types of crimes and a take a pro-active approach. He wants to involve the commu-Osceola County crime drops in the first six months of 2012, FDLE report says By Ken Jackson Staff Writer Citing that it is a speculative investment, the Osceola County Tourist Development Council voted 6-0 at a special meeting Tuesday to recommend that the Board of County Commissioners not support a public/private partnership plan to fund and build a ball field complex on the Judge Farms property across U.S. Highway 192 from Osceola Heritage Park. Commissioners are slated to vote on whether or not to proceed with the project at its regular meeting on Monday. In a report and statement by TDC Chairman Brian Wong, his findings show that building the complex, slated to include 13 fields, one at stadium quality with broadcast capabilities and nine with synthetic turf, a possible hotel and all infrastructure required, is too risky for investment of public Tourist Development Tax dollars, and goes against the Convention and Visitors Bureaus Destination Osceola 2022 strategic plan. We all have a fiduciary responsibility to the citizens of this county to invest public funds with the utmost caution to eliminate risks of losses and maximize potential returns, he said. Current projections of the project call for $30 million in funding from the county, including $6 million to make the site pad ready for construction. County Manager Don Fisher said that using TDT funding is the primary option, but is not the only option, to pay for the project. The United States Specialty Sports Association would pay $300,000 in annual rent as the primary tenant. Among his findings, Wong noted the room nights that the USSSA, the driving force behind the project and the main tenant of this project, seemed to exceed what is possible. And the price the county would spend building the complex is nearly eight times what the CVB spends in marketing funds to attract domestic leisure clients and more than four times the cost to lure international and meeting clientele. We dont know when during the year those room nights come, it makes a difference in price, he said. And its hard to validate those numbers with spread out over 180 properties. Is this something we need to do to grow? CVB is doing a great job, growing the TDT 6 percent. Sports is a competitive and risky business. If this is a break-even investment with the sale of the land added in, is it a project worth doing? Wong said that Brazil, noting new non-stop service from Rio de Janeiro to Orlando International via TAM Airlines has just begun, is an incremental business stream available with no fixed long-term investment required. How big is the sports market? The middle class of the Brazilian market is 150 million people, he said. We havent received any other offers. Can it be done for lower bids or less public funding? Taylor Smith, director of Project Finance & Development, LLC, made a presentation on behalf of USSSA and the 192 Community Redevelopment Agency at Tuesdays meeting. He said USSSA cannot continue its work of expanding on national events in the area working within the status quo. Were trying to develop a destination sports complex. Other communities are building superior facilities, he said. (USSSA) cant concentrate events in this area with the current facilities in place. This would be a bookend to the Disney facilities. This isnt an attempt to replace their resources, it amplifies it.

Page A2, By Peter Covino Lifestyles Editor There will be a hot time in Osceola County Monday night. Kissimmees annual Guy Fawkes event will be held at Champions World Resort, 8660 W. U.S. Highway 192, and features a 30-foot-tall bonfire. Guy Fawkes, a legendary figure in the United Kingdom, is remembered each Nov. 5, for his foiled attempt to blow up the British Parliament. Held since the 17th century in England, Guy Fawkes Day is marked by bonfires and fireworks. It is one of the most celebrated days in the United Kingdom. Kissimmees Guy Fawkes event, is only in its fourth year but keeps on growing, said Justine Assal, a former United Kingdom resident and organizer of the local event. This is a great family event, Assal said, and will include many traditional English favorite foods and beer, but the highlight will be the bonfire. A crowd of about 3,000 is expected, a marked increase from the 400 people who attended the first Kissimmee event, held at the Osceola County Fairgrounds. Kissimmee is a great location for a Guy Fawkes Day event, she said, because of the large British population. Kissimmees Guy Fawkes event is believed to be the largest event of its kind in the Southeastern United States, she said. And with the excitement of fireworks and the huge bonfire, both traditional parts of a Guy Fawkes celebration, the event should be popular with other area residents and tourists as well. Bonfires and fireworks are a big part of Guy Fawkes Day in towns and cities throughout the United Kingdom, she said. Children make effigies of Fawkes, which are burned in the fire. The tradition of burning Guys also is part of the Kissimmee celebration. There will be a competition to build the best dressed Guy dummy to be thrown onto the fire. Prizes will go the best three dummies. Making a Guy is fairly simple, requiring just some old clothes and newspaper to stuff the lifesize dummy. Past entries and other information are available at the event website (Guyfawkeskissimmee.com). Judging will be at 7:30 p.m. and participants need to be by the stage area at 7:20 p.m. In addition to the fireworks and bonfire, the night includes the food traditionally served at the event black treacle toffee, toffee apples and baked potatoes, as well as other British food staples such as Cornish pasties and steak and kidney pie. Beer and wine also will be for sale, and area pubs will be offering up samples of British beer. Other events include a British fancy dress costume contest for adults/children at 8:30 p.m. Costumes must have a British theme in order to win. There will be prizes for adults and children. There also will be an area with rides for children. The bonfire will be lit at 8 p.m. with fireworks at 9:30 p.m. Admission is $5, cash only. This is going to be a slice of Britain for the night, Assal said..Fourth annual Guy Fawkes Day event set for Champions resort Monday File PhotoKissimmees annual Guy Fawkes event will be at Champions World Resort, 8660 W.

Saturday, November 3, 2012 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A3 dents in Osceola County identified as part of the Families in Transition program, meaning they live in cars, motel rooms or bunked up with other families, and 72 percent of students qualifying for free and reduced lunch, the need is evident, Hill said. She recalled a recent story from a teacher who said a couple of her students had to sit out from recess because it was too cold to go outside without a jacket. Hill also said some students improvise by showing up to school with socks on their hands to shield them from the cold. During the fall/winter months, I receive requests from parents indicating the need for warm clothing for their children. They explain their difficulty in making ends meet financially and may not have the extra money for clothing, Consuelo PonceSalmon, a district social worker, said. The Kids Closet has met this need by providing their children with warm clothing (including) jackets, long pants, jeans, sweaters, scarfs and even hats. The Kids Closet is in need of new clothing for boys and girls of all sizes, specifically youth uniform pants, youth sweatshirts and hoodies, jackets, underwear, socks and shoes. Monetary donations can be made through the Foundations website www. foundationosceola.org or by calling 407-344-8155. Parents whose children are in need of clothing should contact their childs school guidance counselor or social worker for assistance. Schools are doing their part as well, with many campuses having a clothing closet internally that stocks donated jackets, coats, uniforms and shoes for children in need. Parkway Middle School in Buenaventura Lakes passed out a number of jackets and sweaters Monday and Tuesday to help shield students from the cold wind, guidance counselor Jannine Martino said. We have a washing machine so some of the stuff gets recycled, she said about students who may have just forgotten their sweater at home or on the bus or clothing turned in to lost-and-found that never gets claimed. Pam Strickland, guidance counselor at Michigan Avenue Elementary School in St. Cloud, passed out as many as 15 jackets and four pairs of closed-toed shoes since late last week in anticipation of the cold snap. I handed out at least a dozen. Im sure there were lots of kids I havent caught. I loan them (the jackets) and if they want to keep them, they can, she said. Strickland emails teachers to see if any of their students need warm clothing. Typically the littler ones are always the ones in the greatest need, she said, adding her school had double the number of students identified as eligible for the FIT program this year than last year to 30. While Michigan Avenue has a close-knit community of parents who donate their time and items to the schools clothing closet and food pantry, Strickland said they are always in need of additional items. She said shoes sizes 13-2 and pants sizes 5-8 are in the highest demand. Donations can be dropped off at the schools front desk. Its very sad; the kids do the best they can, Strickland said. Harmony Community School principal Jonathan Davis said his school is pro-active in trying to keep students warm. When we have kids that show up (without appropriately warm clothing), we make sure we get them something, he said. and formed the company in order to get back to it, is a former banking colleague of Rogers and White. Rogers said they jumped at the opportunity to return to community-based banking, and do it in the area where theyve thrived in business for decades. Weve been in this area working for over 30 years, and we couldnt be happier, he said. Florida Traditions is a highlycapitalized entity, and carries a five-star rating in the Bauer Financial ratings index. Rogers said the smaller-bank model is good for a community like St. Cloud. Philosophically, big regional banks lack the personal level of service. Aside from their physical presence, they really have no ties to the community, and their profits can go to some corporate office in some other state, he said. With a community bank like this, the money the bank makes stays in town, it is loaned and capitalized locally. You build your bank as you build your community. The customers are the reason were here, and its critical to keep the perspective of whats important. When First National of Osceola grew into CenterState and went public in 2002, it brought about extra scrutiny and change, White said. Change isnt always good, and he said he was happy for the chance to get back to his roots with Florida Traditions. Charlie and I are community bankers. When consolidation happens, management changes and authority changes, White said. I was excited about this opportunity, and happy to bring Charlie on board. It gets us back into a community bank by organization, and (Stalnaker) has given us the authority to put it into the position it needs to be in to succeed. And based on the clientele theyve already picked up since opening for business around Labor Day, success is not far off, if it hasnt been achieved already. The communitys been great, and weve been active in the community, where the reception has been excel lent, White said. Florida Traditions features all the usual banking products, merchant services, cash management operations, insurance and commercial lending offerings. Once both permanent Osceola County locations are up and running, they will add 16 banking jobs to the area.

On Oct. 31, a resident who wanted to remain anonymous, contacted the Kissimmee Police Department to report that she may have found the missing Jack Russell terrier named Leia. Detectives retrieved the dog and took her to Osceola Animal Clinic on Main Street in Kissimmee to have the chip scanned. The clinic verified that the dog was in fact Leia and also ensured the dog was in good condition. On Oct. 24, an unknown suspect vandalized a home in Creekside Estates in Kissimmee and took Leia, leaving a note telling the victim they had her dog. A witness described an older model sedan, possibly a gold or silver Toyota Camry leaving the area around the time of the incident. The dog was set to be reunited with her owner.Stolen dog in Kissimmee found safe Submitted PhotoLeia, the stolen Jack Russell terrier, is shown above at the Kissimmee Police Depart ment after an unknown resident found her.News-Gazette Photo/Andrew SullivanBankers Charlie Rogers and Tom White bring the vision of Florida Traditions Bank CEO James Stalnaker to Osceola County.

Page A4, Mayor (seat 1) Borders/FerticMayor Rebecca Borders is running for her second term against former councilman and deputy mayor Jarom Fertic. Borders is looking to continue work on programs that will promote the city as a destination to both tourists and businesses. Shes working with the Department of Transportation and the St. Cloud Greater Chamber of Commerce to post signage informing travellers when they enter the city and steering them toward downtown. Additionally, Borders wants to continue to promote St. Cloud in Lake Nona and to employees in Medical City to visit the city and choose to live there. But we believe gambling that promoting the downtown and establishing a link to Medical City is going to pay off is not solid leadership. Fertic is calling for common-sense growth with a focus on industries the area is already known for such as agriculture. Hed like to see a technical school built in St. Cloud that offers degrees in agriculture, technology and medicine. Thats a bold idea. Plus, when Fertic, a former city councilman, was on the dais, he often questioned city staff recommendations on certain items during meetings. Borders often just tows the line. That was last seen in September, when she initially refused to align with the majority of the council to remove funds from the citys saving account to hire three firefighters after the St. Cloud Fire Rescue chief and the St. Cloud Professional Fire Union contended the fire department was understaffed by nine firefighters. The News-Gazette endorses Jarom Fertic for St. Cloud mayor.Seat 2: Reinhart/CaswellOne of the seat 2 candidates Jeff Reinhart, a contracting consultant, bar owner and daycare investor, and Ron Caswell, a recently retired St. Cloud police officer will replace long-time Councilman Tom Griffin, who dropped out of the race to focus more on his private business. Both Reinhart and Caswell are running on platforms of smaller government while promoting business growth. But we believe Caswell, who came from city government, knows better the inner workings of the city and where to cut the fat. Caswell said the city throws up too many roadblocks in the face of new businesses and wants to see chain restaurants and big box stores as anchors to small businesses to keep residents employed and spending money in the city. We believe thats a solid business plan. Reinhart, who owns the downtown business Soldier City Saloon, wants to cut regulations on small businesses and eliminate impact fees. But we believe he doesnt have a plan where the city would find the revenue to replace impact fees. And we fear hes running more for to represent the business community than for the entire community itself. The News-Gazette endorses Ron Caswell for seat 2.Seat 3: Holmes/Polachek/JonesThe candidates vying for seat 3 are incumbent Russell Holmes, local business owner and former councilman Jay Polachek and recently retired St. Cloud building maintenance supervisor Cecil Pete Jones. Holmes is proud of ideas he had such as the city trucking its own garbage and implementing the recycling program, both of which is providing revenue for the St. Cloud, and wants to continue working toward starting programs that keeps the citys taxes low. That leadership speaks volumes and is worthy of reelection Polachek ran for mayor against Borders two years ago and lost. Unfortunately, we believe the voters have already spoken when he lost the election to Borders. Jones said he is running as the watchdog over the budget because he knows the inner workings of the city after 20 years of employment. Thats admirable, but we dont think its a strong enough argument to unseat Holmes. The News-Gazette endorses Russell Holmes for St. Cloud City Council seat 3. The general election is Nov. 6. Defends OlivoTo the Editor: In response to Mr. Gonnellas recent letter to the editor, it was interesting that he just had to toss in the name of a candidate, Peter Olivo, a bona fide war hero, just for the sake of criticism. Of course, had Mr. Gonnella actually used facts, his letter may have been seen a little clearer by many in Osceola County. Mr. Olivo ran for county commissioner in District 5 against Bill Lane and was defeated by approximately 200 votes, or less. Afterward, Olivo did file to run for another commission seat but withdrew as he did not reside in that district, (3). Thats it, Mr. Gonnella and everyone else. It seems Mr. Gonnella just had to toss in Peters name just for the sake of complaining. Sad. Many people who do not know Mr. Olivo, like Gonella, would be surprised to learn that when he joined the armed forces, he wasnt even a U.S. citizen. Didnt matter as he chose to join and fight for his country. During a firefight in Viet Nam, Peter was not only shot by the enemy, he was also blown up by a land mine, causing him to lose both of his legs. This non citizen didnt allow himself, or his spirit to sim ply die and fade away. He fought to recover. It was during his recovery that his general came to his bedside and in a stern voice stated to Peter that he was aware Peter was not a U.S. citizen. Of course, Peter thought initially, he might be in trouble for something, but instead, the general gave Peter his citizenship on the spot. If Gonnella wants to criticize Peter Olivo for anything, perhaps he should place himself in Peters shoes, or better, his wheelchair. Peter has, over his lifetime, married a wonderful woman and has two beautiful daughters, all who support him. Also during his life, Peter has been very successful in the business world and has personally developed orphanages, one in Viet Nam and the other in Haiti, and is considering developing another where needed. Peter Olivo is a good man, by anyones definition and is certainly qualified, with his business background, to run the office he seeks. Further, Peter has worked steadily at Disney for more than 20 years. That alone places him above his opponent who has collected a public check for many years, as does her son, another politician, who hasnt held a private sector job at all, as far as I am aware. That really doesnt matter because it doesnt to Peter. For a man with so many difficulties, Peter is doing so much better than most of us because of his positive and can do attitude. Mr. Gonnella would be better served if he, himself, would check himself for the reasons he would have even mentioned Peters name in his letter and consider an apology for his insensitivity. However, just like Mary Janes ridiculous politically motivated and insulting poll, no one will expect any apologies coming from anyone. Unfortunately, over the years, here in St. Cloud, some people have decided to forego kindness and respect for simply bad mouthing someone, with or without facts. Mark Rosenbauer St. CloudMisleading letterTo the Editor: Reading the letter to the editor this past Saturday (Oct. 27), I was appalled at all the misleading and non factual statement that were made. In regards to Peter Olivo going from one race to another, this is not true. Mr. Olivo lost his race by a few votes to Mr. Bill Lane. Shortly afterward, he filed to run for county commissioner and withdrew after the race became a district race rather than at large. Mr. Olivo withdrew because he did not live in the district. As far as Peter looking for a paycheck, lets look at the facts Mr. Gonnella. He is a decorated war hero that has been getting a check from the Veterans Administration. Mr. Gonnella, you, your wife and the rest of your children combined arent making what he is. Hes also been working for Disney the past two decades. Mr. Olivo, also has an orphanage in Viet Nam and one in Haiti. What do you or the Arringtons have or have done for anyone? Now, lets look and see who is looking for a paycheck. The last time I checked, it was Mary Jane Arrington. She has been getting paid by our taxpayer dollars for approximately 20 years. Where has she worked other than Osceola County government? Her son, Brandon, is 37 years old and never held a private sector job. Oops, did I say that? You bet I did. This is all true and factual. So now please tell me who is looking for a paycheck and who has been living off taxpayer dollars. Mr. Gonnella, with all due respect, pull your head out of the sand look up and see the daylight. Tony Ferentinos KissimmeeOPINION OPINION Our View For St. Cloud City Council, the News-Gazette endorses...Chronic d iseases account for the majority of mortality, morbidity, and disability in the United States. More than 15 percent of the adult population suffers from a chronic disabling condition, such as arthritis, heart disease, hypertension, or diabetes. Behaviors that lead to many chronic diseases, such as smoking, unhealthy diet, lack of physical activity, and alcohol use, account for approximately 800,000 deaths in the United States annually. According to the (CDC) Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Cancer is one of the most common chronic diseases in the United States, second only to heart disease as the leading cause of death. The CDC report for U.S. Cancer Statistics indicates that t he most common cancers among men are prostrate, lung and colorectal. For women, the most common cancers are breast, lung and colorectal. What is cancer? Cancer is an uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells any place in the body. There are many types of cancer with a variety of causes. Cancer in general is common. It is the second leading cause of death in Florida as well as the United States. The American Cancer Society says one in three people will get cancer during their lifetime. The risk for most types of cancer goes up with age. Therefore, it is important to consider age when trying to see what may be the cause of cancer. Other risk factors such as where someone lives, their familys health history, and personal health habits can add to the chance of getting cancer. It is important to be aware of these factors when trying to understand why and how often cancer occurs in an area. Cancer is often not caused by only one factor. Each type of cancer is almost always caused by a mix of factors. For most types of cancer, how well the body responds goes down as people grow older. With many types of cancer, cases can be cured when caught early. Some of these types are cancer of the breast, cervix and colon. Making sure you get the right kind of screening tests can possibly help detect and treat the disease sooner and help you have a life free from cancer. The development of cancer is often very slow. The time between exposure to one or more cancer-causing agents until the onset of cancer, often depends on the type of cancer. However, in general, it takes approximately 10 to 30 years for the disease to be detectable. What are cancer clusters? Cancer clusters are higher numbers of the same type of cancer cases than expected within a period of time and area. All cases in a cluster must involve the same type of cancer (breast cancer or lung cancer), or types of cancer scientifically proven to have the same cause. Who should people contact if a cancer cluster is suspected? If someone suspects a cancer cluster, they should call the local Health Department who will follow the required Department of Health Protocol for further study.PreventionThe number of new cancer cases can be reduced, and many cancer deaths can be prevented. Research shows that screening for cervical and colorectal cancers as recommended helps prevent these diseases by finding precancerous lesions so they can be treated before they become cancerous. Screening for cervical, colorectal, and breast cancers also helps find these diseases at an early, often highly treatable stage. A persons cancer risk can be reduced in other ways by receiving regular medical care, avoiding tobacco, limiting alcohol use, avoiding excessive exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun and tanning beds, eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, maintaining a healthy weight, and being physically active.

Im big on an intelligenceled, pro-active approach, Massie said, adding the city has started seeing a decrease in auto thefts recently with 15 cases in August to nine reported in September. its much better to prevent these types of crimes. To keep the downward momentum going, Massie plans to kickoff a high-profile holiday detail with highly visible, uniformed police officers patrolling traditionally target-rich environments such as the parking lots of Loop West, Walmart, Target and Best Buy. He looks to partner with St. Cloud police and the Osceola County Sheriffs Office to institute an overall approach to keeping car burglaries and thefts at a minimum. Were all trying to do the same thing, Massie said. Im very big on cooperative, collaboration and information sharing. St. Cloud Police Chief Pete Gauntlett said his agency is right on track for this point in the year and plans to partner with the community to move the crime index downward. As an agency, we collectively continue to focus on our community needs, crime trends and patterns; while utilizing crime analysis reports, community and intelligence-led policing to determine proactive and direct patrol for the areas in need, Gauntlett said. Furthermore, we will continue to dedicating our resources to partnerships with our neighborhood watch groups, local businesses and our citizens, while maintaining the safety of everyone, and continue to work towards the reduction of crime within the city of St. Cloud for years to come. Hansells agency was the only one in Osceola County to report any murders this year, with five that occurred the first half of 2012. Those cases include the woman gunned down in her backyard near Lake Lizzie in March after stumbling upon an alleged drug robbery and the case of Kevin Satterfield, who was found guilty in October of murdering his wife and daughters boyfriend inside their Buenaventura Lakes home in May. Statewide, crime was down 3.8 percent for the first six months of 2012 compared with the same time period in 2011. A 21-year-old Kissimmee man was arrested by the Osceola County Sheriffs Office Tuesday for inappropriately touching a 13-year-old girl. On Tuesday at approximately 8:13 p.m., Sheriffs Office deputies responded to a home on Halifax Drive in Kissimmee. Upon arrival, deputies met with the father of the victim who said Howard Frazier, an acquaintance of the family, had inappropriately touched his daughter. The 13-year-old victim said Frazier, 21, told her he was 17, Sheriffs Office reports said. They were in the master bedroom of the home when Frazier began inappropriately touching her. Deputies spoke with Frazier who cooperated with the investigation and told detectives he knew the victim was 13. Based on the information, Frazier was arrested for lewd and lascivious molestation and booked into the Osceola County Jail.Three suspects arrested for prostitution operationOsceola County Sheriffs detectives with the Tourist Policing Unit Tuesday arrested three suspects for their involvement in a prostitution operation. Arrested were: Ann Marie Behan, 21, of New York, Derrick Wolfe, 32 of Illinois and Stephinia Roberts, 20, of North Miami Beach. The investigation began Tuesday, when unit detectives conducted an undercover operation targeting back page prostitution. An undercover detective located an advertisement in the Orlando Back Page escort section of an Internet site. The advertisement stated a female named Michelle, later identified as Behan, was in the Central Florida area visiting from New York and was interested in meeting men. The detective made arrangements to meet Behan at Motel 6 at 5731 W. U.S. Highway 192 in Kissimmee. While in the motel room, Behan made a call to Wolfe, who detectives later discovered was leading the prostitution operation. When Behan offered the detective sex in exchange for money, she was arrested and charged with prostitution and renting space for prostitution. Wolfe arrived with a female, identified as Roberts, to pick up Behan. Roberts was arrested and charged with possession of cannabis under 20 grams and tampering with evidence. Wolfe was charged with deriving support from prostitution and related acts, possession of cannabis under 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia. During the investigation, detectives discovered Wolfe was staying at the Celebration Suites at 5820 W. U.S. Highway 192 in Kissimmee. In the room, detectives took into evidence computers set up for sex ads and items consistent with operating a prostitution scheme. All three suspects were booked into the Osceola County Jail. xxxxxx Kissimmee man arrested for inappropriately touching 13-year-old girl Police news Frazier CrimeContinued from Page A-1 VOTE NO!Non-Partisan County Commissioner Election Question VOTE NO!is ad paid for by the Osceola County DEC and is not an endorsement of or by any candidate.Heres why: commission.

He also reminded the board that the Houston Astros lease to hold spring training at Osceola County Stadium ends after the 2015 spring season. There would be a guarantee of 156,000 room nights, and booking fee as a revenue source that isnt there now, he said. If the Astros are gone, if we dont do this deal, USSSA (and their national headquarters at the stadium) will be gone, too. Taylor later said that the 192 CRA team was disappointed that members of the TDC were basing their opinion of the project on self-generated misinformation from members of the council to the public. The Sports Complex and village is an economic revenue generator and will be a good partnership with USSSA to expand the amateur sports industry here in Osceola County, he said. But the TDC members, while showing support for the project itself, said their concern was with the amount of public funds required to make it happen. My right brain is excited, but my left brain is concerned about making a good long-term decision for the county, Vice Chairman Kent Bjorklund said. Kissimmee City Commissioner and board member Cheryl Grieb expressed concerned that there are already projects in various stages of funding and development. I need to know how this would affect those agreements, she said. This is a good location for it. Im not against the project but the way its financially structured with all of this TDT commitment. Mike Harford, who sits on the TDC board as a representative of the County Commission, has backed the USSSA in the past and says the Judge Farm facility could be a great project. Im just concerned how its going to be paid off, he said. There are more concerns and questions than answers right now. They want us to back the bonds, but if USSSA cant perform, wed have to throw them out, and were left to run it ourselves. Wong also went back to the auditors report, which stated that the countys return on investment would be a wash, even with the county selling 25 acres of the Judge Farm property at $120,000 apiece. Right now were not armed with enough info, we need to study this further, he said. Its not clear if this is the highest and best use of taxpayer dollars. This ties up a lot of capital and flexibility for the future. TDC Continued from Page A-1 coming to the Mu seum of Military Hi stor y M M M The Museum of Military History is proud to bring the traveling exhibit, Humanity Beyond Barbed Wire: Hitler s Soldiers in the Sunshine State, to Osceola County on view from November 9 December 30. The Florida Holocaust Museum created exhibition is based on a book by Robert Billinger, Hitlers Soldiers in the Sunshine State. It illustrates the principles of a democratic nation and the humane treatment of enemy combatants during WWII. A history of hate caused millions of deaths during the Holocaust. However, the treatment of German POWs in the United States during World War II created an obvious contrast as many former German POWs looked back on their experiences as positive ones. This exhibit rolls back history to the 1940s. See the insights into this era of Floridas history through the eyes of those that witnessed this period of Floridas histor y.

Page A8, S PORTS S PORTS Follow us on Twitter www.twitter.com/OsceolaSportsLady Longhorns move onProving the theory that you cant be wrong often enough, I give you my preseason football selection as the champion of the AFC West: San Diego. Wrong again. Only for about the fifth straight year. Maybe its because of those magnificent powder blue retro outfits they occasionally unveil, but for some reason, I cant seem to shake my annual infatuation with the Chargers, the NFLs great pretenders. Norv Turner and Phillip Rivers may eventually prove to be the most hapless pairing since Milli Vanilli. After a promising start when Turners lackadaisical bunch actually w on their first two games, San Diego regressed with back-to-back losses to Denver and, oh my, Cleveland, 7-6. At 4-4 after beating footwipe Kansas City (see below) Thursday, the Chargers by no means are out of the AFC playoff hunt, except, well, we all know they are. I vow that next August, no matter what, even if Romeo Crenel still is the coach at Kansas City and even if the Raiders still are in that division and even if Peyton Mannings neck falls off, I will not, under any circumstances, consider San Diego for the AFC West crown. Well, probably not. Those powder blues are nice. Not that we want to spend all our time bashing the Chargers here because, darn it, we need time to jump on FSUs case (sorry, Flaming Spear Sullivan). The Noles, among the bright stars in college footballs preseason pageant, tripped over their prom gowns at North Carolina State on their way to the BCS championship game. North Carolina State? After escaping Clemson, and with a remaining schedule that the Osceola Kowboys would find barely challenging, the Seminoles managed to dodge a BCS invitation by unveiling a shockingly ineffective offensive game plan against the Wolfpack that even Norv Turner would find embarrassing. Sadly, San Diego and FSU dont even top the list of my most woeful preseason picks. Thats Kansas City and Cincinnati checked as the AFC wildcards. Cincy, I figured, finally looked ready to ascend in the AFC North. Not yet. Kansas City? I have no idea. Baltimore, New England and Houston are mostly where they are supposed to be. Sure, theres Denver, but did you think Peyton Manning would make it through the season intact? Things are slightly brighter in the NFC, but not much. Green Bay, San Francisco and Atlanta should make it. Philly could be problematic (sorry, Young Jackson). The Giants are looking good, the Saints aint. At least I got Alabama right, but thats like dropping a line in a one-starving-fish barrel. Young Jackson is in moderately better shape, his major hiccups being preseason infatuations with the NFLs Carolina and Buffalo. His BCS championship game, USC and Oklahoma, looks more like the Emerald Bowl. Like all the great ones, we dont look back. We look forward to even greater incompetence. Thus, here is the Mighty News-Gazette Divine Nine:No. 1: Bama. No. 2: Atlanta. No. 3: Peyton. No. 4: Eli. No. 5: Da Bears. No. 6: Da Niners. No. 7: K-State. No. 8: The Irish. No. 9: Voters. To the picks: Missouri at Florida (-16): Is it possible that the Gators already are finished with their SEC schedule? Yep. In fact, they must have thought they were done last week. Gators by 13.

Rick PedoneSports Editor See Picks, page A-9 Volleyball regionals Picks of the Weak By Rick Pedone Sports Editor Harmony will square off against Lake Minneola Tuesday at 7 p.m. for a 7A Region 2 volleyball semifinal at the Longhorn gym. The Lady Longhorns, 19-8, advanced after a 25-23, 25-15, 25-18 sweep of Osceola, 15-11, Wednesday at Harmony. L ake M inneola, 23-4 blitzed Celebration in three games 25-5, 25-9, 25-12. Harmony, a state finalist last year, had to rally from a 22-18 deficit in the first game against the hardhitting Kowgirls. Osceolas Katie Markley, Aspen Dangren and Kristina Wendland were often dominating at the net for the Kowgirls as they surged to the lead after trailing 11-7 in the opening game. But, the Lady Longhorns fought back with outstanding net play from Chaney Howard and Kendall Pollock. After Aubrey Runnels hit made it 22-19, Pollock served three points to tie the score. OHS regained the lead at 23-22 before Howard took over with a pair of big hits from the left side sandwiched around an ace from Adalyn Gaston. I told the girls when it was 22-21 (OHS) that if we can come back and steal this one that they think they have won already, it would mean a lot, Horns Coach Eric Trowbridge said. I normally dont call timeouts with this particular group because they have the ability to know how to position themselves and to do what it takes to win in most situations. Osceola Coach Carrie Palmi said losing the first game hurt. We just made too many mistakes, she said. Osceola fought through the balance of the match, tying Harmony at 10 in the second game before the Lady Longhorns went on a 12-2 run to break the game open thanks to serves from Howard and Pollock. Pollock got the game-winner on a re-direct at the net. OHS led 6-1 and 17-14 in the third game before Howard, f ittingly, ended the match with a hit. Howard had 18 kills and 13 digs, and Genesis Viera had 28 assists for Harmony. Chaney has made strides every single day. She is usually the first at practice and the last to leave, Trowbridge said. She constantly is working on her technique, like shell ask if her elbow position is right when she hits. She, and most of the other girls, were here to see the great play we got from Marie Gilbert and Alicia Palm last year, and to see how hard those girls worked in practice. We have Alicia back as a volunteer coach this year Harmonys Samantha Pearo leaps high to make a shot during a recent Lady Longhorns match. Harmony beat Osceola Wednesday at the Longhorns gym to advance to the regional semifinal round against Lake Minneola.News-Gazette Photo/Andrew Sullivan Harmony, Hawks meet in semifinalsSee Regional, page A-9 By Rick Pedone Sports Editor Osceola County will be well represented at the 2A-3 regional s wimming meet at Dunedins North Shore pool today.

Osceola, the runner-up to Lake Minneola in 7A District 5, may be a team on the rise. I told our players that Osceola was going to be a much better team than the last time we played them, Trowbridge said. They have some good young talent. Fortunately, we had several good days of practice to prepare. Palmi said her team will be a force in the future. Weve got a lot of underclassmen (like Markley, Dangren, Astra Weismore and setter Kaitlin Birchler) coming back, so we have high expectations, she said. Were going to be very good. Celebration, the 7A-6 runner-up to Harmony, finished the season 14-10. Coach Pedro Davila said that Lake Minneola is talented. They are loaded, very wellrounded, he said. Trowbridge said he knows several of the Hawks players through his club program Theyre big, but theyre also athletic, he said. What well want to do is to keep the ball in play, to keep digging and make them keep hitting it. Big teams are used to making the one pass and then winning on the next hit. When you keep making the digs and putting the ball in play, sometimes theyll get frustrated. Trowbridge said his team will be prepared Tuesday. Im very proud of this team.

A-10 SwimmersContinued from page A-8Back on the lake again after being foiled by Hurricane Sandy and her aftermath last week. Man, does it feel good! I went out Wednesday morning to locate some fish for upcoming guide trips. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that quite a few bass have moved way back inside to about 3 feet of water. I had been catching them offshore in up to 8 feet. The w ater has cooled down quite a bit since the change in weather and the bass are more active now. Ive talked to several fishermen who tell me they are catching bass on top water lures, Rat-L-Traps and spinner baits. Ive been catching most of mine on soft plastics. Fishing pretty slow. Ive also had good luck throwing a Carolina Rig on the shell beds. A 6-inch trickworm and a speed worm have worked best for me. Shiner fishing is also picking up. Most of the guides are reporting good catches in the last couple of weeks. Some are anchoring up along hydrilla edges and others are trolling open water where there is scattered hydrilla. The Xtreme Bass Tournament Trai l will have their yearend Classic tournament this weekend. It will be interesting to see how many big fish are caught then. Im sure the cooler weather will get the specs fired up as well. Its been so windy the last couple of weeks, that not a lot of boats have been out there trying. Some nice bluegills are still being caught off the fishing piers and in the boat cuts. Crickets and worms are still your best bet. Send information about your big catch to capjac@ usfamily.net. You may also send fishing information and photos to email@example.com. Jacque MitchellFishin Fun Fishing should pick up as wind slowsmade the regional meet. Osceolas Joshua Cancel, a freshman, qualified for the 3A-1 regional in the 500 free (5:13.14) and 200 free (1:55.34). Divers Josue Herrera (420.90), Dillon Newsom (288.65) and Jordan Parrish (375.70) also advanced. We had some great swims, Osceola Coach Krystle Singleton said. I had some amazing swims from a few newbies, a few who even dropped 10 seconds in the 100s. Gateways Josh Longfield (100 back, 1:03.54) and Walter Brooks (100 breast, 1:05.34; 200 IM) also advanced to the 3A-1 regional, considered one of the most competitive regions in the state.

By Peter Covino Lifestyles Editor Chances are, you probably have been to the Great American Pie Festival, held each spring in Celebration. The popular event, hosted by the American Pie Council, brings thousands to the Osceola community to sample dozens of different kinds of pies. But the festival is just a part of the week of pies, which includes the annual APC/Crisco National Pie Championships, a major piebaking event pitting amateur, professional and commercial bakers against each other. Now, for the first time, the American Pie Council has released a book featuring nearly 200 recipes from the pie competition. Americas Best Pies: Nearly 200 Recipes Youll Love (Skyhorse Publishing, October 2012) features recipes from the unusual, like My Big Fat Italian Strawberry Basil Wedding Pie to classic apple. Each recipe in the book has been reviewed by judges and determined to be an award-winning pie. Recipes in the book include: *Silky, Rich & Smooth Chocolate Pie *Lemon Raspberry Twist *Island Breeze Pineapple-Blueberry Cream Pie *Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chunk Pie Deep-Dish Deluxe Banana Split Pie *Oreo Peanut Butter Mousse Pie *Pumpkin *California Raisin and Nut Pie *Holiday Cranberry Mince Pie *Vanilla Bean Brulee Pie The A merican Pie Council founded in 1983, is the only organization dedicated solely to pie. In the months before the event, 200 hundred judges (food professionals, chefs, cookbook authors, food editors, suppliers to the pie industry and every day pie lovers) are chosen and in April each year pie bakers from all over the country descend on Central Florida to compete. About 1,000 pies are judged each year over the course of three days. In addition to all those recipes, Opening scene: Yep, tha ts Denzel Washington, looking like he has been drinking all night, bedded down with a lovely woman. He kicks off the brand new day by doing a few lines of cocaine with a beer chaser, something left over from the night before. Next scene: Theres Captain Whip Whitaker (Washington) in uniform and he is the senior officer ready to pilot a commercial plane out of Orlando International Airport. Its not the most comforting thought for those who fly regularly, that the man behind the cockpit might be drunk. Whitaker isnt only drunk in Robert Zemeckis latest film Flight. He is an alcoholic of the first magnitude. The man not only drinks and does drugs before he gets to the airport he also sneaks a few of those little bottles of vodka into a orange juice container and downs that after taking off. Whitaker should be the last man you want to see as you board a plane, but if all hell is about to break loose, as it does in Flight, he is the only man you want in the cockpit. The first hour or so Flight is classic Hollywood moviemaking. We meet Whitaker, know how bad his substance abuse problem is, and in some gre at action cinema, watch him 50 CENTS Denzel Washington stars in classic airplane movieFollow us on Twitter www.twitter.com/icmovies Peter CovinoFilm Critic Section B Check out aroundosceola.com The high and the mightyLIFESTYLESLIFESTYLES GUY FAWKE SKISSIMMEE After a few years hiatus, there is a Guy Fawkes celebration coming to Kissimmee.

B By Peter Covino Lifestyles Editor The Who has just begun a worldwide tour (they are at the Amway Center tonight), but one of the worlds most famous rock bands were rehearsing quietly last week at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee. The band is on a 35-city tour, performing one of the legendary rock albums of alltime, Quadrophenia and they spent several days at OHP tuning up for the performance. Unfortunately, as often is the case with rock bands, rehearsal time was not a magical time for those who got to witness the practice sessions. There really wasnt too much music being played, said Richard Matroberte, director of marketing and sales for Osceola Heritage Park. I was a bit disappointed, said Matroberte. Apparently technical issues dominated much of the proceedings so there was not much music. Those hoping to hear some of the memorable songs from the album, released in 1973, didnt get to see or hear much. The bands sixth studio album includes songs such as The Real Me, I am the Sea, The Punk and the Godfather and Reign Oer Me. The current lineup of The Who includes original members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townsend as well Zak Starkey (son of Ringo Starr) on drums, Pino Palladino on bass, Simon See Who, page B-3 Annual Crisco pie event now has book featuring some of the best pie recipes Legendary rockers, The Who, did their rehearsing for new tour in Kissimmee November 3, 2012Denzel Washington plays the pilot you would most want in a emergency situation, even if he is a drunk, in Flight.

Panera Bread In a reinvigorated partnership, Panera Bread and Community Based Care of Central Florida (CBC) are working together to help teens in foster care find meaningful employment. This partnership reaches out to the 522 young adults (age 16-23) who are served by CBC and offers them an opportunity that may not have otherwise been available to them. Weve found that throughout these partnerships, natural mentorships are created in the work place and positive work habits are instilled, said Annette Ford, owner Covelli/Panera. In a spring 2012 survey of local foster teens ages 1617 one reported active employment and only 11 had been employed within the past year. CBC is actively looking for partners throughout Central Florida who will give these youth a chance at employment. When you can teach a young adult the responsibility and pride in oneself that comes with having a job, you have really set them up for success throughout their lives, said Glen Casel, CBC CEO. We have so many eager, intelligent teens in our program who just need an opportunity to succeed. Panera Bread owners of 65 Central Florida and Tampa Bay locations, Annette and Gavin Ford, knew that their expanding company could make an impact on the lives of these teens by offering them the basic life-skills that come with employment. While getting the job is a great first step, many of the teens have hardships in getting to the workplace and purchasing their required wardrobe. Panera Bread recognizes these issues and has committed to working with individual employees to provide uniforms and even bus passes to get the teens off on the right foot. We thought it is important to not let not having money prohibit someone from earning money especially these kids who have already gone through so much, said Ford. There are thousands of small business and large corporations in Central Florida that we know our teens would be a great asset to, said Casel. We know that our relationship with Panera is just the first of many such partnerships. Companies interested in partnering with the CBC on this initiative are encouraged to learn more at www.cbccfl. org.

Saturday, November 3, 2012 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page B3 safely land a plane after terrifying moments. Washington is in top-form throughout Flight, even after the film begins to sag a bit as it ticks past the two-hour mark. But Zemeckis (Forest Gump, Back to the Future) makes this an entertaining ride for most of the trip. Along with the first-rate flight/ crash scene, other highlights include a smoking break scene in a hospital stairwell between Washington, an attractive heroin junkie and a chemo-therapy patient and every scene involving Washingtons longtime friend and drug supplier (played by John Goodman). I wasnt sold at all on the ending, and the scenes leading up to it, but most of Flight is the reason we go to the movies. And Washington would get an Oscar nomination for best actor, at least if the ballots were due in by the first week of November.

NEIL ARMSTRONGORLANDO Currently on display at the Orlando Museum of Art is The Great Moment, a painting of American hero Neil Armstrong by Paul Calle, commemorating Neil Armstrongs historic first manned lunar landing. Armstrong died recently at the age of 82. Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon July 20, 1969. American artist Paul Calle had been one of five original artists selected by NASA to document the United States attempt to land a man on the moon in the late 1960s. Other artists included Bob McCall, Lamar Dodd and Peter Hurd. Calle was the only artist who was with Armstrong in the hours prior to the launch. Calle had already created a painting of the historic event that was reproduced as a stamp and released by the Post Office on the date that Armstrong set foot on the moon. When Calle completed The Great Moment Neil Armstrong signed the painting at the lower left near the lunar landing module leg. This is very unusual as Armstrong is on record many times refusing to sign anything that might enhance the commercial value of any product or service. He even refused to sign the lithographs of this painting. Hanson Mulford, Curator of the Orlando Museum of Art stated, It is very rare to find anything such as this with Armstrongs signature.AQ UATIC A WEEKDAY PASSORLANDO Aquatica waterpark has added a new weekday pass that alllows guests to enjoy unlimited access through Dec. 31.

The following chart lists the amounts of maximum coverage available to property owners within the City and Osceola County. Property Protection Measures Each year, flooding causes more property damage in the U. S. than any other natural disaster. While recent construction practices and regulations have made new homes less prone to flooding, many existing structures remain susceptible. There is a growing interest from property owners to develop practical and cost effective methods for reducing or eliminating exposures to flooding. Several effective ways include acquisition and relocation of a building to a site not subject to flooding, construction of floodwalls or berms to keep water away from the property, or retrofitting structures to make them floodproof. Retrofitting is different because the property remains subject to flooding, while the building is modified to prevent or minimize flooding of habitable space. BUILDING COVERAGE Single Family Dwelling $250,000 Other Residential $250,000 Non-Residential $500,000 Small Business $500,000 CONTENTS COVERAGE Residential $100,000 Non-Residential $500,000 Small Business $500,000Drainage System Maintenance A community can lose a portion of its drainage system storage capacity due to dumping, debris, soil erosion and sedimentation, and overgrowth of vegetation. When this happens, flooding occurs more frequently and reaches higher elevations, subjecting properties otherwise protected to unnecessary risk of damage. Keep grass clippings and other debris out of stormwater drainage systems to prevent clogging and loss of stormwater storage capacity. Residents can report drainage problems, including illegal stream dumping, to the Citys Public Works Department. Please call 407.518.2169. Natural and Beneficial Functions of the Floodplain Natural Flood and Erosion Control: Providing flood storage and conveyance, reduces flood water velocity and controls erosion of conveyance systems. Water Quality: Filters nutrients and impurities from runoff. Ground Water Recharge: Reduces frequency and duration of surface flow. Biological Resources: Supports high rate of plant growth, provides breeding and feeding grounds, and enhances water fowl habitat. Societal Resources: Provides open space and aesthetic pleasures, and in areas of scientific study, provides opportunities for environmental research. Community Rating System The City participates in the voluntary Community Rating System (CRS), a part of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which provides a mechanism for reducing flood insurance premiums to reflect what a community does beyond the NFIPs minimum requirements. There are several recognizable approaches to retrofitting: systems) flood waters) In the event of pending flood threats; take the following emergency actions: such as garage doors backflow of sewer waters Floodplain Development Permit Requirements Any development in the floodplain requires a building permit. To obtain a flood zone determination or a copy of completed Elevation Certificates, please contact the Citys Public Works and Engineering Department at 407.518.2170. Substantial Improvement Requirements The City requires that if the cost of reconstruction, rehabilitation, addition, or other improvements to a building equals or exceeds 50% of the buildings assessed tax value, the building must meet the same construction requirements as a new building. Substantially damaged buildings must also be brought up to the same standards (e.g., a residence damaged so that the cost of repairs equals or exceeds 50% of the buildings value before it was damaged must be elevated above the base flood elevation). The assessed value, as listed by the Property Appraisers CITY OF KISSIMMEE Public Works & Engineering Department101 N. Church Street Kissimmee, FL 34741 407.518.2170 Hours of Operation: Mon. Fri., 8:00 a.m. 5:00 p.m. The Local Flood Hazard In the City of Kissimmee, the primary threat of flooding results from the ponding of water during heavy storms. Some flooding can result from overflow of small ditches and streams during significant storm events. Since the City is relatively flat, however, stormwater sometimes simply overwhelms street drainage and storm outfall devices. Leaves and other debris can clog storm drains, causing water to back up into lower-lying areas. Residents are asked not to blow yard waste (i.e. grass clippings, leaves and small branches) into the street in order to prevent clogging stormwater grates and other drainage structures. The Flood Warning System In the event of a major storm, the City receives notification from the Osceola County Emergency Management Center and certain City departments are put on alert. Additionally, the Citys 19 monitoring stations have been programmed to send alert e-mails to staff if the water levels rise to pre-flood stage elevations. Local media sources are notified and distribute instructions to the public. If needed, the Fire and Police Departments may notify area residents via door-todoor, telephone, and use of sirens and public address systems. During significant storms, the Police and Fire Departments monitor storm updates and alert the media. Osceola County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) The City of City of Kissimmee works with the Osceola County EOC, the National Weather Service, and the National Hurricane Center to monitor flood and storm threats and advise the community accordingly. Osceola County City of Kissimmee Emergency Operation Plan When a storm or flood threatens to impact the City, staff monitors the event, relying on information from the Citys 19 monitoring stations that provide real time rainfall and stage (water elevation) information. Additionally, Osceola County officials and the NWS provide detailed information regarding storm conditions and flood threats. The NWS issues updates, warnings and evacuation notices. Flood Safety Measures If evacuation becomes necessary be sure to turn off all utility services at the main connection. Do not walk through flowing water. Drowning is the number one cause of flood deaths, mostly during flash floods. Currents can be deceptive; six inches of moving water can knock you off your feet. Before you walk in standing water, use a pole or stick to see how deep the water is. Do not drive through a flooded area. More people drown in their cars than anywhere else. Do not drive through road barriers; the road or bridges further down the road may be washed out. Stay away from power lines and electrical wires. The number two flood killer is electrocution. Electric current can travel through water. Report downed power lines to KUA or the County EOC. Flood Insurance Property losses due to flooding are not covered under most standard homeowners insurance policies. You can protect your home and its contents with flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), at reduced rates if you are in a special flood hazard area. Land areas that are at high risk for flooding are called Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs), or floodplains. These areas are indicated on Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs). A home located within an SFHA has a 26% chance of suffering flood damage during the term of a 30-year mortgage, and will require insurance. The NFIP is a federal program, which enables property owners to buy flood insurance at reasonable rates. In return, participating communities carry out flood management measures designed to protect life and property from future flooding. The NFIP is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency through its Federal Insurance Administration. The City has participated in the NFIP, since 1974. The Citys NFIP number is 120190 with a Class 8 rating, which provides a 10% discount on flood insurance.
