Excellent Good OK Poor Vote at www.around osceola.com Results from the Dec. 20 Question of the week: With the recent tragedy at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, do you think gun control laws should be tightened further? Yes, I do. 93.8% No, I dont. 6.2% Im not sure yet. 0% I dont have an opinion. 0% Community By Fallan Patterson Staff W riter When students in St. Cloud High Schools Bulldogs Against Destructive Driving conducted an experiment to calculate how many of their peers actually wore their seatbelts, they expected disastrous results. On Dec. 3, the club members took a tally of their fellow students driving onto campus to check if they were buckled up and found that 78 percent were wearing their seatbelts. We were surprised that it was pretty good but wed like it to be 100 percent, BADD teacher advisor Denise Peeler said. The high number didnt deter the clubs weeklong focus on destructive driving supported by all three local law enforcement agencies. The Osceola County Sheriffs Office donated the clubs T-shirts and State Farm Insurance contributed $2,500 toward the clubs efforts. The week included the Kissimmee Police Departments anti-texting while driving Public Service Announcement, which was filmed earlier this year at Osceola High School using local emergency service personnel. It really makes the students think about what theyre doing, Peeler said. They had some really powerful video. The traffic safety week also was the debut of the Kissimmee Police Departments new texting simulator. St. Cloud High School students were the first public citizens to test out the $9,000 simulator, a nearly five-minute simulation on the standalone, completely portable system that includes realistic foot pedals, a steering wheel and the monitor. The program also allows users to choose between day or night simulation. Students used their own cell phones during the demonstration, on which text messages appeared from the program while a passenger gives the driver directions. The program will continue to send text messages if the user attempts to ignore them. The program measures how many times the driver crosses over traffic lines, crashes or hits pedestrians. It can also be used to simulate impaired driving. Stacie Miller, the police departments public information officer, has made educating young drivers about the dangers of texting while driving her pet project, working with the city for more than a year to acquire the simulator. Teen driving f atalities have increased 7 percent in the past year and the increase is attributed to distracted driving, Miller said. Kissimmee Police Departments presentation about the dangers of texting while driving shows the brutal truth about this epidemic and having the students experience the simulator will hopefully drive home the fact that texting while driving can be deadly choice.

The Sheriffs Office Narcotics Enforcement Team conducted the operation after receiving complaints of possible illegal activity at 3881 Hickory Tree Road in St. Cloud. The investigation revealed the homeowner, identified as Michael Andrew Ward, also known as Mike Busey, who according to published reports is the nephew of actor Gary Busey, was illegally selling alcohol at his residence. According to Sheriffs Office reports, Ward does not have a liquor license issued by the Department of Business and Professional Regulations, which is required by anyone who sells alcoholic products. The party consisted of several hundred people at his residence, with reports of illegal drug activity, which has been an ongoing issue in the neighborhood. Ward was arrested and charged with liquor sold/exporter without a Actors nephew arrested for illegal alcohol sales Police news Ward See Police, page A-3 Under the high school accountability system, all of Osceola County high schools earned an A or B letter grade for the 2011-12 school year. Gateway, Harmony, Osceola, St. Cloud High schools, Osceola County School for the Arts, and PATHS all earned A grades. Liberty, Poinciana and Celebration each earned a B. Only Celebration went from an A to a B. The revised high school grading formula includes FCAT performance in reading, math, writing, and science; college readiness in reading and math as measured by SAT, ACT and PERT standardized tests, participation and performance in rigorous courses like advanced placement, dual enrollment, international baccalaureate and industry certification classes and overall graduation rate and at-risk graduation rate. Superintendent Melba Luciano lauded staff for its work in earning these grades. Congratulations to all teachers, administrators, support staff, students, and parents on the exciting news of the high school grades, she said. Given the numerous changes in the high school grading formula, such positive results show that our Osceola schools have done a tremendous job of raising expectations and expanding opportunities for all of our students. I am confident that we are on the right path to prepare our students to compete at the highest levels and become successful.Osceola high schools receive A, B grades By Ken Jackson Staff W riter The trial of a local homeless man charged in Celebrations only murder case will continue in January.

Thursday, December 27, 2012 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A3 Nov. 29, 2010, will have his day in court on Jan. 22 at 9 a.m. The case, delayed multiple times by motions to suppress prosecution e vidence and other continuances, will go to trial at the insistence of the State Attorneys office. The state opposes any other continuances, Assistant State Attorney Bradford Fisher told Ninth Judicial Circuit Court Judge Scott Polodna at a pre-trial hearing on Tuesday. Attorney Brock Shields appeared Tuesday repres enting Murillos defens e team I was under the impression of another continuance, he said. Fisher responded that t he state was under the impression the defense was ready for trial. They have not filed any depositions in months, he said. Murillo was arrested two years ago. Murillo, homeless and living in a transient camp behind a Ramada hotel on U.S. Highway 192 just west of Simpson Road, told Osceola County Sheriffs detectives he killed Giovanditto because Murillo suspected Giovanditto had drugged his soda. And nd thought Giovanditto w as making sexual advances toward him. Much of the evidence came from a search warrant executed on Murillos camp, but the defense moved to suppress any evidence from it, stating investigator Det. Alex Bejaranos report was obtained under unreliable and unconfirmed information for lack of specific evidence. Osceola County has granted the Kissimmee Valley Farmers Market $6,000 to start a market dollars program for Downtown Kissimmee restaurants. The grant provided by the Osceola County Economic Development Department, was offered to Main Street and Community Redevelopment Agencies countywide. Downtown Kissimmee restaurant owners will receive $100 in vouchers each quarter to spend at the Kissimmee Valley Farmers Market on produce, breads, sauces, specialty items and more, all from Florida, to serve in their restaurants. This program will continue to promote the Markets goal of educating the community on buying local and knowing where your food comes from. Three Sisters Speakeasy is excited to participate in the market dollars program by offering local produce in our menu items. We also look forward to coming up with new dishes based on whats at the market each season, Elizabeth Millet, restaurant manager, said. Several restaurants have already taken part this quarter, with Willys Weiners using their grant money to purchase produce for their new side salad and Quokka Coffee offering a Kissimmee Farmers Market caprese salad using locally made mozzarella cheese and locally grown tomatoes. The restaurants do not have to be part of Kissimmee Main Street, but must be in the Main Street district, to get the grant. The following restaurants also are participating in the program: Broadway Restaurant, Nadias Caf, Mrs. Macs, Joanies Diner, Savions Place, Aztecas, Taqueria Tres Amigos, Nenes Restaurant, Broadway Pizza Bar, Susans Courtside Caf and Natures Table. We are so excited to partner with Osceola County on this program, and so far it has been well received by the downtown restaura teurs, Kelly Trace, Kissim mee Main Street Executive Director, said. Being able to serve local produce in their establishments we feel will be a big plus to bring new people downtown, which is always our goal. The Kissimmee Valley Farmers Market, previously the Downtown Kissimmee Farmers Market, opened Oct. 9 and operates Tuesdays from 4 to 8 p.m. in front of the Kissimmee Civic Center on Dakin Ave. The new market focuses on fresh and local produce.

In the past, the Sheriffs Office has received numerous complaints and has been addressing the problems at Wards residence, which includes working with the countys Code Enforcement Department to resolve the issues. The investigation is ongoing with additional charges pending.New York sergeant arrested for sexual batteryOsceola County Sheriffs detectives arrested a New York Police Department sergeant and charged him with sexual battery for alleged crimes committed more than 20 years ago. The incident was reported to law enforcement in October of this year, but further investigations revealed that the crime occurred 24 years ago when the male victim, a relative, was 8-years-old. The New York City Police Department received a report alleging 48-year-old Eduardo Nieves, of Brooklyn, sexually battered a family member. The New York department began investigating the incident and discovered another similar crime in Osceola County might have occurred involving Nieves, so it contacted the Osceola County Sheriffs Office. Osceola detect ives d iscovered Nieves lived in an apartment complex on Michigan Avenue in 1988 and the sex battery involving the 8-year-old boy occurred sometime between March and June of that year. According to the victim, Nieves touched him inappropriately and sexually battered him on at least six separate incidents. On Dec. 20, Osceola detectives traveled to New York City to interview Nieves who is currently a sergeant with the New York Police Department assigned to the Manhattan Detention Center. Nieves has been employed with the New York Police Department for 18 years. Initially, Nieves cooperated with the investigation but eventually requested an attorney. Based on the victims and witnesses statements, Nieves was charged with six counts of sexual battery and booked into jail. He will be extradited to Osceola County. Florida has no statute of limitations on capital felony crimes.A lleged victim a rrested for lying about s exual a ssaultA Kissimmee woman was arrested and charged with allegedly making a false report after to lying to authorities that she had been raped. On Dec. 20 at approximately 9:38 a.m., Osceola County Sheriffs deputies responded to an apartment complex on Ravenwood Circle in Kissimmee. Upon arrival, deputies spoke with the alleged victim, identified as Yorohannae PujolsPichardos, 23, who said she was coming home from work when a dark skinned male wearing a black sweater and blue jeans was standing near her apartment. The victim said she was holding her 2-year-old son when the unknown male came from behind her and forced her into her apartment at gunpoint. Pujols-Pichardos said he forced her to the ground and sexually battered her at gunpoint. S he also gave a detailed description of him and indicated he appeared homeless and threatened her by saying, If it wasnt for your boy, I would have killed you, Sheriffs Office reports said. Pujols-Pichardos was taken to the crisis center for evaluation. After f urther investigation, detectives discovered she lied about the incident so her family would not find out about relationships she was having with her co-workers. Based on the information, Pujols-Pichardos was arrested and charged with false report to law enforcement and false official statements. She was booked into the Osceola County Jail.PoliceContinued from Page A-1 Nieves PujolsPichardos MurderContinued from Page A-1 Contact Ken Jackson at 321-402-0435 or by email at kjackson@osceolanews gazette.com. A rabid raccoon found near Shingle Creek serves as a reminder of the importance to keep pets vaccinated against the deadly disease, Animal Services officials said. This is the first confirmed case in Osceola County all year, officials said. The appearance of a sick raccoon was reported by residents on Dec. 15 on Stonehurst Circle in Kissimmee. The raccoon was picked up by an Animal Services officer after it had died and was submitted for rabies testing. There were no reports of any person or pet having contact with the raccoon, but Animal Services officials want to encourage residents to: Keep pets inside at night. Make sure pets and appropriate livestock, such as horses are kept current on rabies vaccinations.

Page A4, Now that the beleaguered Mayans can go back to being a preternaturally advanced preColumbian civilization, rather than a doomsday sect, we can return to talking about the holidays. One of my favorite parts of the season is the annual what-weve-been-up-to letter that typically comes tucked inside a seasonal card. These detailed missives recount the past year for far-flung friends, almost always with self-deprecation, so that the years high-points, successes and proud-parent boasts are balanced by moments that, had they been captured on video, would have meant YouTube stardom or jail. Heres my take on that tradition, but rather than my own year, I give you the nations 2012. It was a busy year for America, and on balance, a good one. Lets see, lately weve been helping liberate Syria from tyranny like we did earlier in Libya. Its a mess right now, but were hoping for the best. We helped out in Myanmar, too. It was nice to see Aung San Suu Kyi out of the house, dont you think? Work-wise, things are picking up from the doldrums of a couple years ago. The kids are still having a tough time finding good jobs, though even that is beginning to look better. At least they have us oldsters around to fall back on, now that we can keep them on our health insurance. Our own Chief Justice John Roberts gave us quite nice surprise on that front. Did you hear that John broke ranks with that narrow-minded group he hangs out with at the court to uphold our firstever national universal health care program? We were just bursting with pride. Who knows, maybe theres a chance hell help send that nasty Defense of Marriage Act to historys dustbin. It would make for such nice spring cleaning, and Johns such a neat freak. The biggest news was the election, of course. In a nutshell, it consisted of a gazillionaire mob (pun intended) giving stacks of money to that distasteful Karl Et tu, Ohio? Rove, to turn the election so that people like them dont have to share with the less fortunate. They must have missed that lesson in kindergarten. But, like a little holiday miracle, all their money didnt work the magic that it usually does, and the leaders of the Only the Little People Pay Taxes Party had to admit that their polls were wrong. Now if only theyd admit that their stances on climate change, separation of church and state, science, workers rights, reproductive freedom, the environment, guns, gays and the Laffer curve are wrong, wed have ourselves a dang, fine country. Maybe they could consider being more open-minded as part of a New Years resolution? Ha. Just kidding. In America, nothing gets resolved. Still, for us, Nov. 6 turned out to be the best night of the year. The man who won the presidency is the man who Nate Silver said would win. You must have heard of him. No, not the president, Silver. Hes our greatest nebbishy celebrity since Carl Sagan. Gosh. We miss Carl. No year is ever free of its humiliations, and 2012 certainly had its share. There was that little matter of Florida and the elections again. We thought that meshugana state had cleaned up its act after the last election debacle in 2000. Guess not. But, hey, on the bright side, the way the sea levels are rising, it wont be our problem much longer. And as for Donald Trump, we checked, and there is no way to revoke a persons citizenship for being the most embarrassing American ever. Sorry. Despite the challenges, America had a pretty good year, and were looking forward to an even better 2013. Mazel Tov to Kate and William, our overseas cousins, who we hear are expecting. And a special shout-out to our Chinese uncle. Thanks again for the loans! As long as the children of the House dont make the debt-ceiling their political pawn, were good for it.

Thursday, December 27, 2012 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A5 Improvements underway at Osceola Heritage Park will make the multi-purpose complex more attractive to buyers and patrons, said Osceola County officials. Most noticeable of the changes for passersby, tenants and frequent users of the complex is the ongoing installation of black aluminum ornamental fencing bordering the 198-acre site. Expected to be completed as the massive Mecum Auto Auction arrives next month, the new fencing improves the overall look of the complex, giving it a much more aesthetically appealing appearance to new and repeat visitors. In the 10 years since its opening, the complex has faced regular criticism from residents and visiting groups for an exterior look that did not meet their expectations of showplace for sporting events, concerts, trade shows and a host of other events. With that in mind, Osceola Countys Department of Tourism Development set aside capital improvement funds to address the criticism. Replacing the original chainlink fencing addresses one of the key Osceola County tourism development strategies to bolster the complex selling points by giving it a much more aesthetically appealing look. In addition, officials say, the fence enhancement project falls in line with the East U.S. 192 Community Redevelopment Agency for future business growth and development efforts. With additional landscaping improvements tourism leaders are hoping to use Osceola Heritage Park as a showcase for improvements along this corridor of U.S. Highway 192. Winter Garden-based KMG Fencing won the approximately $150,000 bid to install the new fencing upgrades. Osceola County will salvage as much of the original fencing as possible and use it at its other parks and sporting venues. Besides new fencing, county officials also have plans to improve the directional signage on the complex, build a new storage and maintenance warehouse as well as make improvements within the Silver Spurs Arena. Completed upgrades within the last year include a new parking lot and street paving, portable stairs in the Arena Bowl and several energy saving measures. Each of the changes is a calculated move to help deliver bigger and more events to the complex. A tally of events held at Osceola Heritage Park in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30 shows the complex hosting 17 consumer shows, 29 sporting events and dozens Students also received Texting Kills bands to wear and participated in activities with the St. Cloud Police Department, which included wearing Fatal Vision goggles that allow the user to see through the eyes of a drunk person. Those wearing the goggles attempted to walk a straight line, catch a football and drive a pedal car through a small obstacle course, oftentimes while texting on their cell phone. Students often made com ments such as Im dizzy after wearing the goggles. Senior Ciara Miller, no relation to Stacie Miller, was happy with the turnout of her peers to the activities the club organized. As the vice president of projects for BADD, she and her fellow club members designed traffic safety week so their peers would be aware of their consequences of destructive driving. Texting while driving was the biggest topic the club wanted to conquer after the school has seen an uptick in the last two years of oncampus accidents attributed to cell phone usage, Ciara Miller said. Senior Elizabeth Wereka, vice president of programs of work for BADD, was encouraged by the feedback she heard from her classmates. Ive heard people talking, saying Im never going to text and drive, she said.

Thursday, December 27, 2012 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A7 Orlando hotelier and recognized philanthropist Harris Rosen, president of Rosen Hotels & Resorts, has donated $1 million to Give Kids The World (GKTW). It will go toward the construction of 64 new villas which will accommodate more children w ith life-threatening illnesses and their families visiting the nonprofit resort for a once-in-a-lifetime dream vacation. The donation, which was made through the Harris Rosen Foundation, will go toward GKTWs Capital Expansion and Improvement Project, which is part of a five-year, $120 million Village Campaign. Give Kids The World got an early Christmas present this week when I received a phone call that all non-profits dream of getting, said GKTW President Pamela Landwirth. Mr. Rosens incredible gift not only jump-starts the fundraising for our new villas, but also provides the inspiration to hope for many more generous gifts in support of our campaign. According to a company press release, Rosen is a widely recognized and respected hotelier, community builder, father and philanthropist who founded Rosen Hotels & Resorts in 1974 before donating 25 acres of land and $10 million to the University of Central Florida in 2002 to develop the Rosen College of Hospitality Management at UCF. Students from Rosen College volunteer regularly at GKTW, following their founders mantra of giving back to the community. Rosen has a long history of giving to those in need, particularly children. I realize what an incredibly fortunate individual I am because I have been able to achieve so much more than I ever imagined, and now I have an opportunity to give back, something I have always wanted to do, said Rosen. My hope is that others in my position will recognize their duty to engage in what I refer to as responsible capitalism and to use t heir success and w ealth to benefit others, simply because its the right thing to do. Every year, GKTW welcomes more than 7,000 families from around the world for a weeklong, costfree vacation complete with accommodations in whimsical villas, meals, donated attractions tickets, nightly entertainment and more. However, with only 140 villas on the 70-acre resort, nearly 500 of those families must stay off-site at nearby hotels. Rosens gift will allow more children and their families the opportunity to experience the magic of staying at the whimsical village where ice cream is served for breakfast, Christmas comes once a week and 6-foottall bunny rabbits named Mayor Clayton and Ms. Merry tuck the children in at night. Recently, Rosen had the opportunity to meet one of the families who will be helped because of his gift. The Vandiver Family from Pelham, Ala., is staying at Give Kids The World Village as part of 5-year-old Abigails wish to visit Walt Disney World. Diagnosed with cancer at seven months old, Abby has been cancer-free for three and half years. Rosen recently shared in the familys fun by indulging in ice cream for breakfast a tradition a Give Kids The World Village with Abby and siblings Patrick, 10, and Sarah, 7. Afterward, he joined the children for a ride on the Villages Enchanted Carousel. Watching her childrens faces light up with joy as the carousel spun around, Abbys mother, Amy, said, I stay at home with the children and my husband is a police officer so being (at Give Kids The World Village) is something we could never have afforded on our own. It is truly the vacation of a lifetime.

Thursday, December 27, 2012 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A9 Are you like many Americans who make phone calls while theyre driving? Or text a friend or family member when you reach a stoplight? Or browse restaurant menus on your smartphone or tablet while driving around town, searching for a place to eat? Did you know that in doing so you could be breaking the law? Taking your eyes off the road can lead to car crashes. And, jail time, too, as an 18-year-old Massachusetts driver recently discovered, when he was convicted and sentenced to jail time for causing a traffic death while texting and driving. With the growing use of smartphones and other electronic devices in todays automobiles, including GPS units installed in the dashboards of many new vehicles, auto crashes have risen significantly over the past five years. According to a 2010 statement by the National Safety Council, percent of all traffic crashes; about 1.6 million crashes per year; involved drivers talking on their cellphones or texting. The council estimates that at least 200,000 crashes directly involve texting while driving. As a result, the U.S. Department of Transportation has called for a complete ban on cellphone (including smartphones) use by drivers. And 37 states and Washington, D.C. have banned text messaging while driving by all drivers in their jurisdiction, according to FindLaw.com, the nations leading source of free online legal information. Ten states and Washington, D.C., also have banned hand-held use of cellphones while driving. Knowing y our states laws involving texting and driving is just as important as knowing the DUI laws, s ays Nicholas Timko, an attorney at the law firm of Kahn Gordon Timko & Rodriques in New York City. In a growing number of states, texting is a primary offense, which means you can be pulled over on suspicion of texting, similar to drinking while driving. If youre found guilty, you can be heavily fined and lose your driving privileges. The use of an electronic device while driving also can have other consequences. If youre involved in a crash and used a cellphone or PDA shortly before or during the accident, you could be found guilty of negligence, which may lead to large monetary liabilities. Texting while driving is only one aspect of a growing number of laws and regulations that address distracted driving. Here are additional tips from FindLaw.com about how to avoid distracted driving: Turn off your cell or smartphone and put it out of reach while youre driving. Configure your GPS and set your music station or portable music device before you begin to drive. Many cellphone and texting laws also involve electronic devices such as GPS units and MP3 players that could lead to distracted driving. Understand the laws for new or novice drivers. New or novice drivers in particular are the targets of many cellphone and texting laws. In some states, a teenage driver using a hand-held cellphone can be pulled over as a primary offense. Plan before you drive. Need instructions about how to get somewhere? Avoid taking your eyes off the road by creating driving instructions on a search engine and printing out a map. Pull over and stop to look at your map if you get lost or need to review where youre going. And leave early enough so youre not rushing to get where youre going. Ask a passenger for help if you need to look up something, get directions, make a call or read an email or text. Dont do it yourself.If youre traveling by car to another state, familiarize yourself with local texting and cellphone laws. If youre involved in a crash, dont attempt to throw away or hide your cellphone. Law enforcement can inspect cellphone records and determine precisely if you were using your cellphone or texting while driving. Pull over to a gas station or another safe locat ion to make or t ake a phone call, text or surf the Web.Avoid other distractions. Put on makeup before you get in the car. Secure your pets if theyre traveling with you. Dont eat or smoke while driving. ors. Applications are due to the high schools by Feb. 20.

But do you have any idea who committed the most errors in MLB history? The answer, with an astounding 1,096 over 16 seasons thats an average of almost 70 errors per season is a shortstop for Bostons National League team who played at the turn of the last century. His name was Herman Long. National Football League fans were relieved to see the regular officials return to duty early in the 2012 season, but perhaps not the folks at ESPN. It was a blown call by the replacement refs costing Green Bay a win against Seattle that motivated a settlement after a four-month lockout, but viewers were so fascinated with the play that the episode of Sportscenter following the broadcast of the game was the most watched ever. And get this there were more than a million mentions of the play on Twitter within 24 hours.

Thursday, December 27, 2012 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A11 All-County golf By J. Daniel Pearson For the News-Gazette During the 2012 high school golf season, Harmonys Tyler Bennett averaged an impressive 36.2 9-hole scoring average and won both the Orange Belt Conference (OBC) and the District 17 championship before falling a few shots short from qualifying for the state tournament. Although Bennett was disappointed that he did not reach his ultimate goal of making the state tournament, his accomplishments were more than enough for him to qualify as the Osceola News-Gazette Male Golfer of the Year. Bennett may w ant to reserve some trophy space next to the award. Only a sophomore, he will have two more shots at Player of the Year honors before graduating in 2015. About the only disappointment was that I didnt get a chance to make it to the state tournament, Bennett said. The rest of the year went fairly well. Our team was pretty focused all season and we went into each match and each tournament with the right attitude. Bennett fired a two-under 69 to take medalist honors at OBCs, edging teammate Corey Herman (71) and St. Clouds Caleb Sibley (71) by a pair of shots in leading the Longhorns to the team championship. One week later, Bennett won a playoff over Sibley to take the District 17 title after both golfers posted 2-over 74s. Bennetts efforts helped the Longhorns secure a third place team finish. A week later his season came to an end with an 8-over 80 at Duran Country Club in Viera (Melbourne). There wasnt a lot of pressure on me this season, Bennett added. Everyone sort of accepted their roles and did their jobs. We had a lot of fun this season. Obviously I was a little disappointed that I didnt play better in regionals, it was just one of those days where things didnt go well. A 6-2, 205-pound golfer with a powerful swing and outstanding ball striking abilities, Bennett started playing in junior tournaments as a 9-year-old at Royal St. Cloud Golf Club. Although the athletic Bennett could have succeeded in any number of sports, he chose golf. After excelling in several junior levels, Bennett earned All-Conference as a freshman and helped the Longhorns win the 2011 OBC Championship. As for the future, Bennett says improving is his main goal. I consider myself pretty good off the tee and a pretty fair ball striker, Bennett said. Putting is something that I really want to get better at, but I guess anyone who has ever played the game can say the same thing. Getting better is something Bennetts swing coach says should not be a problem. Lake Nona professional Scott Blanchard has been coaching Bennett for almost one year and believes the sophomore can develop into a special player. Tyler is a great talent and has an incredible future in front of him, Blanchard said. He has both the physical and mental tools for the game. Tyler is never too low or too high and always has a willingness to learn. Hes extremely dedicated to the game and theres no question he will play at the collegiate level. For Bennett, golf is a way of life. He is currently playing on the fall swing of the ultracompetitive Hurricane Junior Golf Tour, where he has posted a pair of top 20 finishes. Basically, when I am not in school, I want to be on the golf course, Bennett added. I never want to slow down. Its important to keep playing and keep improving.

All-County boys golf Follow us on Twitte r www.twitter.com/OsceolaSport s Bennett, Dukes tops in county Erica Dukes saved her best golf for senior season By J. Daniel Pearson For the News-Gazette While growing up in St. Cloud, Erica Dukes said golf was a fun, family activity. But her brother Chases success at the high school level inspired Erica to take the game a little more seriously. Joining the Lady Bulldogs golf to team as a sophomore, she went on to earn AllOrange Belt Conference three times. This past season, she added an OBC Championship, helped her team advance to regionals and became the first female golfer from St. Cloud High School to advance to the state tournament. For those impressive accomplishments, Dukes is the Osceola Osceola NewsGazette Female Golfer of the Year. Getting to states was always the goal, Dukes said. Coach (Eric) Godfrey and I talked about it before the season started and he mentioned that no one off the St. Cloud team had made it to the state tournament before. It was a great feeling to reach that goal. Godrey said Dukes was not only a good player, but a good teammate as well. Erica is a great leader and a great team player, Godfrey said. Golf is an individual sport with team implications and she is the main reason our team made some great strides this year. She practices hard and is really intense on the course, but she always is the first player to make time to help her younger teammates out. For Dukes the post-season began Oct. 9 when she fired an impressive 5-over 77 to win the Orange Belt Conference championship by seven shots over Libertys Alice Munn. Although it was her first OBC crown, it marked the third consecutive year that Dukes finished in the top seven to earn All-Conference honors. One week later, Dukes posted an 83 to finish second in the 2A District 17 tournament. Her second-place finish was three shots back of Munn, who won the district crown with an 8-over score of 80. It was Dukes score, however, that led St. Cloud to a third place finish in the tournament and a trip to regionals. The season would come to an end for the Lady Bulldogs at regionals. The top two teams advance from regionals to the state tournament, as well as the top two individual players from non-qualifyin g teams. Dukes shot a 10-over, 82 at the difficult Challenger Course at Suntree Golf Club. That total gave Dukes sole possession of eighth place and edged Munn, Harmonys Lauren Bishop and two others by two strokes for the second and final at-large spot for the state tournament. Dukes says she will miss the friendly rivalry she has developed with Munn over the last two years. Shes really a good, young player, Dukes says of the Liberty sophomore. Weve gone head-to-head a lot of times, but it has always been friendly. We always c ongratulate and encourage each other. In a lot of ways, I think weve made each other better players. At states, Dukes p osted rounds of 91-87 at the Harbor Hills Golf and Country Club in Lady Lake. The score was good for a 54 th place tie in the large school division and bested or tied 43 other golfers at the state meet. The state tournament was such a great experience, Dukes said. But the first day was really rough. It was a tough course and it was really cold. When I added in the realization that I was playing against the best high school players in the state, my nerves got to me a little bit. On the second day I settled down a bit and realized it was just golf. The overall thing about Erica has been her consistency, Godfrey added. Shes good off of the tee and extremely confident on the greens. I think the thing that impresses me most about her game is she never has those b lowup r ounds. We coul d always count on her to shoot a low round. Ericas game has caught the attention of college recruiters. Several colleges have contacted her about playing and she is narrowing her choices down. Right now, she saids shes leaning towards Scad College, an NAIA member in Atlanta. Whether I am awarded a scholarship or have to walkon, I want to play at the next level, Dukes said.

Section B Go to www.aroundosceola.com for all St. Cloud news December 27, 2012 On a recent morning, the fourth grade students at Trinity Lutheran School, 3016 W. Vine Street in Kissimmee, went on an unusual field trip to the Walmart Neighborhood Market across the street from Trinity on West Vine Street. They were accompanied by their teacher Cindy Sharman, Pastor Emeritus Peter Zieg, and several parents. This was no ordinary class field trip. Four important lessons were gained from this school trip. Lesson one involved studying a shopping list, looking up and down the aisles, finding the correct food items in the correct size and then comparing prices in the store. They also discussed the differences between canned and boxed food versus fresh and frozen and national brands versus store brands. Back in the classroom, the second lesson involved putting math skills to work in finding the totals spent, price and size comparisons, and graphing the results. The third lesson required writing skills to complete an essay on this experience. All three lessons are very valuable to become wise shoppers and better-educated students, but the fourth lesson was the most important for the Trinity students. The last lesson was not about the food shopping itself, but about giving to others who do not have the resources to go shopping. Trinity students, with help from t he c ongregations Samaritan Fund, were able to purchase 144 food items. These items purchased were brought forward in the Schools Wednesday morning Chapel service as part of the offering. The following day the students loaded the church van with bags and bags of food. Three students accompanied Pastor Pete in delivering the food to the f ood pantries at O sceol a County Council on Aging and the Osceola Christian Ministry Center. These students came back to class and shared how grateful people were to receive food and how much of a need there still is. Our math skills have gotten better, but our hearts have grown so much more through this experience, Sharman said.No ordinary class field trip Including: oinciana L Submitted PhotosAbove, Trinity Lutheran School, 3016 W.

The city of Kissimmee celebrated its annual Festival of Lights Parade on Dec. 8. The 57-entry procession led Santa and Mrs. Claus aboard their sleigh as they travelled through the historic streets of Downtown Kissimmee and concluded with a special tree lighting ceremony in front of the Kissimmee Police Department. A panel of judges from the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board selected parade winners. The results are as follows: Winners Per Category: Light s : Kissimmee Utilities Authority (KUA); Effects: Studio 5-6-7-8; Quality: U.S. Naval Cadets; Originality: Toho Water; Interaction: Youn g Blacks In Action; Organization: Osceola High School Kowboy Band; Performance: Kowboy International Dance Squad (Kids -Osceola HS); Theme Representation: Osceola School District Best Overall Parade Entry Winner: The Classic Affair. Winners of the Festival of Lights Parade will be awarded trophies at the next city of Kissimmee Commission meeting scheduled for Jan. 15. According to a city press release, a special thanks also goes out to the grand marshal of the parade this year. Joseph Joe Koch was selected for this honor because of all of the charitable work he does in the community. Koch has logged more than 20,000 service hours to help children with life-threatening illnesses as a volunteer at Give Kids The World (GKTW). He also was recognized for his contribution during the Aug. 16, newscast of the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley. For more information, contact Vanessa Romn at 407-518-2576. City of Kissimmee employees bring Christmas to local foster children Kissimmee police and city employees helped to bring Christmas to 120 local foster children. The Kissimmee Police Department partnered with the Foster and Adoptive Association of Osceola County to help provide Christmas gifts for 120 foster children in Osceola County. The department prepared an Angel Tree in the administrative offices. Each angel had a childs name, age and clothing size written on it. Police and city employees choose an angel from the tree and shop for that child. This is the fifth year the department has participated in the Angel Tree program with the Foster and Adoptive Association of Osceola C ounty, said Chief Lee Massie. The compassion of the employees of the Kissimmee Police Department and the city of Kissimmee is overwhelming and infectious.City of Kissimmee announces 2012 Festival of lights winners City of Kissimmee Toying aroundNews-Gazette Photo/Andrew SullivanMichigan Avenue E lementary principal Diane Crook-Nichols, left, makes recommendations to parent Michelle Mercer, who has a first grader at t he school, on which toys her daughter m ight like during a walk through what event helpers dubbed the gauntlet a hallway f illed with donated toys.

Page B2, A few weeks ago, I discussed some of the diseases that are associated with your backyard citrus trees. This week, I want to concentrate on insects that cause damage to citrus trees. Three of the most common insects found on citrus trees include aphids, citrus leaf miner and orange dog caterpillars. If you have a citrus tree in your yard, you probably have seen these insects or the damage they cause to your tree. Have you ever noticed a black film of soot on the surface of the citrus leaves? This black substance is called sooty mold and it is a sign (or byproduct) of aphids. Aphids are insect pests of citrus trees. Their characteristic pear shape bodies easily recognize them. On citrus trees, aphids are usually yellow, green, brown, or black in color. However, the brown citrus aphid (Toxoptera citricida) is the most damaging aphid to citrus. Preferring new growth, aphids injure citrus by inserting their needle-like mouthpart into the leaves and feed on the sap. This causes the leaves to become curled and twisted. Curled leaves are inefficient energy producers for the tree and the distortion is permanent. The tree cannot function as efficiently with this damage; therefore the tree may become stressed and possibly sick if the tree becomes heavily infested with aphids. Aphids are usually found feeding on the bottom side of the leaves. They take in the sap of the leaves then excrete a sticky substance called honeydew that falls on the top surface of the leaves below. On the honeydew grows sooty mold, a nondamaging fungus, which creates a black film on the leaf surface. Sooty mold is an indication that aphids are present on the tree. To control aphids, use an insecticidal soap substance found in the local garden centers. Make sure to spray the underside of the leaves where the aphids are hiding. By controlling the aphids, you will also control the sooty mold. Lady beetles love to feed on aphids and may serve as a biological control in your backyard. The citrus leafminer (Phyllocnistis citrella) is a tiny moth, about the size of a gnat that lays her eggs in the leaves of citrus trees. The egg hatches into a caterpillar, barely visible by the unaided eye. This caterpillar or leafminer, protected by the layers of the leaf, consumes the tissue in the leaf causing it to curl. You can also see the path of the leafminer, squiggly lines, throughout the leaf. At first the lines appear to have a clear or incandescence look to them, however, as the dam aged area ages, it turns brown. Unfortunately, there is not control for the citrus leafminer. The small caterpillar is protected by the layers of the leaf, therefore will not be exposed to any pesticide application. The good news is that the damage caused by the citrus leafminer is only cosmetic. This means it causes no harm to your tree expect for making the leaves look ugly. The third insect you may find on your citrus tree is the orange dog caterpillar (Papilio cresphontes). Its a strange name for an insect that is neither orange or resembles a dog. This caterpillar is white and brown and has an appearance of a bird dropping. Im assuming this is a disguise from its enemies, such as b irds. This caterpillar consumes the leaves of the citrus trees and can easily defoliate young trees. This caterpillar can be very damaging to young citrus trees; however, you should know that this not-so-attractive caterpillar is the larvae of the beautiful giant swallowtail butterfly. Therefore, it is your choice if you want to control this insect or not. If you control it, you will have no butterflies. I recommend controlling the caterpillar on young trees, but sharing a few leaves on your larger citrus trees with them. Sacrifice a few leaves on your larger trees, so you can enjoy the beautiful butterflies. To control the caterpillars on smaller citrus trees, use a product that contains Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). This product is a natural bacterium that only affects caterpillars, so it safe to use. Just keep it away from your butterfly garden, because it kills all caterpillars. Enjoy your citrus trees, but keep an eye out for insects that may attack. For more information on growing citrus trees, contact the Osceola County Master Gardeners at 321-697-3000.

You can also visit various websites for research and watch numerous cable shows for investment recommendations. So, why shouldnt you be a do-it-yourself investor rather than work with a financial professional? Actually, there are at least five good reasons why a financial advisor can help make you a better investor. A financial advisor can: Ask the right questions: If you try to invest on your own, you may find yourself asking the wrong questions, such as: Whats the hottest investment out there? A financial professional can help frame better questions, such as: Given my individual risk tolerance and long-term goals, which investments should I consider to help me build a balanced portfolio? In other words, a financial professional can help you ask the questions that can lead to better results. Look at your situation objectively: No matter how hard you try, you wont be able to take all the emotion out of your investment choices. After all, your investment success will play a large role in some key areas of your life, such as your ability to enjoy a comfortable retirement. Consequently, if you think youre not making the progress you should with your investments, you may be tempted to make a hasty decision to give your portfolio a jolt. Frequently, though, such choices can backfire. When it comes to investing, its better to invest with your head, not your heart. A financial advisor can analyze your situation, assess your risk tolerance and make appropriate recommendations. Show a deeper understanding of investment research: You can look up many types of financial data on your own. But do you know how to put all these pieces together into a c ohesive picture ? A financial professional, with years of experience and training, is generally more capable of finding t he r esearch sourc es and making the most sense out of the results. Put experience to work in making portfolio recommendations. Even if youve been investing for many years, you might be surprised at all the underlying influences that should go into making investment decisions. But a financial professional understands market patterns, the nature of diversification and other factors necessary in helping you make the right choices for your situation. Spend time looking for opportunities: Even if you enjoy the process of investing, the chances are quite good that you cant spend as much time on it as a financial professional. That means, among other things, you arent constantly on the lookout for new investment opportunities. Nor are you always looking within your own portfolio for opportunities to rebalance or make other adjustments that can help you move forward toward your goals. But when you work closely with a financial advisor, he or she is exploring the financial markets for new investment prospects while regularly reviewing your portfolio for possibilities of upgrading quality, increasing diversification or making adjustments in response to changes in your life. The do-it-yourself route may be fine for home repairs. But when it comes to managing your investment situation, there are benefits to working with a professional.

In comparison the Orlando Sentinel produced the same ad and we received only 2 display ad copies from the public, BIG difference!

Whether youre gathering with friends, colleagues or family this holiday season, entertaining with appetizers is the perfect way to have fun without the stress of creating a multi-course meal. And when the question of what to serve arises and you need an easy-yet-impressive solution, cheese plates are an ideal way to bring a gourmet touch to your event without a lot of effort. If a cheese plate sounds too basic, think again. Its all about balancing tastes, textures and visual appeal with a variety of fun food and beverage pairings. Plus, its a great conversation starter to get your guests interacting. Luckily, if youre in a rush on the day of your gathering, a cheese plate is easy to put together in minutes no cooking necessary. Just plan to include three to five cheeses per platter estimate about 3 to 4 ounces of cheese per person and arrange -your choices on a pretty dish or tray. There are infinite ways to create a cheese plate that will be the talk of your party. Consider these simple suggestions for a bit of inspiration: Play with variety and contrast. Include cheeses in a range of textures, from soft to semi-hard to crumbly or hard, that have a range of flavor profiles. Consider combinations like a soft and creamy brie, a harder aged cheese like Stella Sharp Provolone and a crumbly Salemville blue cheese. Start mild and move to strong. Give your guests a tastebud tour of the many different flavors fine cheeses have to offer. Present a trio of options with varied intensity of flavor including an appealingly tangy chevre like Organic Creamery goat cheese, a buttery Gouda and a bold cheese like Black Creek Extra Sharp Cheddar. Shake it up with unusual cheeses. Give guests the opportunity to try cheeses they might not have had before. Its t he perfect way for them to sample something that could become a new f avorite. L ook for c heeses with unique ingredients, like Great Midwest Mango Fire Cheddar, which has habanero pepper and the rich sweetness of mango. Its a great idea to set out some other small food items that pair nicely with cheese, like Kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, Marcona almonds, grilled vegetables, sliced fruit or even chocolate. Cheese and wine famously go together, so offering your guests samples from a few bottles will make the tasting experience even more fun. Keep these wine-and-cheese pairing principles in mind: For hard, stronger-flavored cheeses (e.g. Gruyere or aged Cheddar): Mediumbodied reds (e.g. Pinot Noir) For soft, young cheeses (e.g. goat cheese): Simple, young wines like sauvignon blanc For stronger blue cheeses (e.g. gorgonzola, Danish Blue): Sweet/dessert wines For mild, buttery or creamy cheeses (e.g. triplecreme bries): Sparkling wines Semi-soft cheeses (e.g. camembert): Chardonnays and full cabernets Parties should be just as much fun for the hostess as they are for guests. Opting for easy-to-create gourmet cheese plates will save time and allow you to enjoy the tasting experience with friends and family.

No matter if youre planning the party of the year or just inviting a few friends over, a great home bar is essential to make it a night to remember. Having everything you need on hand is the base of creating the perfect home bar. From smooth spirits to glasses to tools for mixing drinks, when your bar arsenal is complete, there is no drink you cant make at home. -Even if youre starting from empty, a few simple steps will help transform you into a home bar master, and impress even the most discerning cocktail connoisseur: Choose spirits carefully. Look for distinctive spirits that have a reputation for quality. New Amsterdam Vodka, for instance, is a premium vodka known for its unparalleled smoothness, which means you can drink it straight or mix it into a variety of equally smooth cocktails. Flavor profiles are also important in some spirits, so look for brands that emphasize a good balance. New Amsterdams award-winning gin is renowned for its balance and subtlety, which makes it a modern approach to this classic spirit. Be sure to have a good variety of the most popular spirits available so that youre able to make a range of drinks to satisfy any whim. Prep your cocktail supplies. Plastic cups are out real cocktails made with New Amsterdam spirits need the right tools of the trade. That includes glassware, so make sure you have everything you need, from highballs and lowballs to champagne flutes, red and white wine glasses and pint glasses for beer. Other barware you might want to consider includes a shaker, a strainer, a muddler, an ice bucket and a jigger, which will come in handy when measuring out proportions. Customize your cocktails. Since youre home, youre in charge of the garnishes, and can pick your favorites. A supply of citrus fruits like limes, lemons and oranges let you add twists or a squeeze of fresh juice. When youre hosting, make it fun by setting out items like pickles, olives, cheese cubes or celery and letting guests create their own skewers to garnish their drinks. Keep up the customization theme by offering your guests a signature cocktail or two, particularly if youre celebrating a special occasion. Whether its a large party or an intimate gathering, hosting at home allows you to man the bar and personalize the evening. New Amsterdam offers two signature drink recipes that will show off your smooth bar skills, and are as easy to make as they are to drink.

As many women know, it can be difficult not to gain weight as you near menopause. The weight gain can be attributed, in part, to the drop in estrogen and the slowdown in metabolism that is brought on by menopause. Muffin tops arent funny to middle-age women, and many struggle to find an effective way to fight it, says Susan Mills-Gray, nutrition specialist with University of Missouri Extension. Commit to these proven techniques to fight middle-age spread: --Eat breakfast to boost mood and metabolism. --Drink water -about 1 liter for every 1,000 calories you consume. --Exercise regularly to increase endorphins: Daily exercise is crucial in the battle against belly fat. Focus on 30 minutes of brisk walking each day, and then add two to three 20-minute sessions of strength training each week. Both of these forms of physical movement build muscle, which helps boost metabolism. --Get a good nights sleep: Family and work responsibilities combined with community involvement can leave you overcommitted and working late at night to stay caught up. Also, many women have started unwinding via electronic social networks, which trigger brain activity. Lack of sleep can be the result. Getting enough sleep is absolutely necessary to fighting weight gain. Lack of sleep reduces the production of the appetite-controlling hormone leptin. Studies show that aiming for at least seven hours per night is best. --Eat less: When you were in your 20s and 30s, a periodic larger intake of calories didnt result in as easy weight gain, as it does in your 40s and 50s. As you age, you have to eat less and move more in order to fight belly fat. Pay special attention to how much you eat -1,600 to 1,800 calories a day is a healthy goal for most women. --Eat an early, light dinner: Menopause causes a slower metabolism. Combine that with a naturally occurring slower metabolism while we sleep, and this means more calories are converted to fat. Make your evening meal your lightest meal of the day, and try to not eat within three hours of bedtime. --Seek support: Surround yourself with friends and loved ones wholl support your efforts to eat a healthy diet and increase your physical activity. Better yet, team up and make the lifestyle changes together. --Start you day with a smile: Abraham Lincoln said, Most people are as happy as they make up their minds to be. Heres a great recipe for Salmon Bisque, a meal thats high in calcium and omega-3 essential fatty acids. Folate and complex carbohydrates help to ward off depression, so foods like salmon, whole-grain pasta and greens are feel-good nutrients. These foods affect the delicate balance of chemicals in the brain, known as neurotransmitters, and help boost your mood. Its light, filling and may help you to get some much-needed sleep. SALSA SALMON BISQUE The heavy cream used in a traditional bisque has been replaced with a lighter way to thicken the broth without losing any of the fabulous flavor. 2 cups cooked salmon, cut into bite-size pieces or 2 (7.5 ounce) cans wild Alaskan salmon, drained and broken into bite-size pieces 1 tablespoon butter 1 tablespoon olive oil 1/2 medium onion, peeled and diced 2 stalks celery, diced 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper 1 cup mild salsa 2 cups water, chicken broth or seafood broth 1/8 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 tablespoon corn syrup 2 tablespoons cornstarch 1 (12-ounce) can low-fat evaporated milk or 1 1/2 cups skim milk Chopped green onion tops, parsley or fresh thyme leaves for garnish, optional In a large pot, melt the butter and heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery and garlic. Season the vegetables with poultry seasoning, salt and pepper, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the salsa and cook for 2 minutes. Add the salmon and water or broth. Bring mixture to a boil and immediately, turn heat down to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes. In a small bowl, mix together the baking soda, corn syrup and cornstarch. Stir in milk and mix well. Stir the baking soda mixture into the pot. Cover for 5 to 6 minutes to thicken sauce. Sprinkle with chopped green onion tops, parsley or fresh thyme leaves, if desired. Serve immediately.

While the holidays might not quite be over, planning for post-holiday cleanup can help combat the winter blues and keep you from being that one house on the block that has a holiday wreath hanging on the door until July. Here are a few tips that might help holiday cleanup go a little easier: --If you have a real tree, check with your local government to find out if and when there is tree pickup and disposal in your area. Otherwise, look for a tree disposal service nearby. Remove and pack away all the tree ornaments and decorations. The night before scheduled disposal or pickup, prep the tree. If the disposal service wants it in a tree bag, put the bag over the tree and cover the tree fully while its still in its stand. With a helper holding the tree in place, loosen the trunk from the stand and carefully lift away. Drain excess water from the stand into a sink, dry and store for next year. --When removing the tree from the stand, dont set the trunk down on the carpet or floor, as sap will create a sticky mess. Dont use the tree as firewood: Its not seasoned and the branches may have been pre-treated at the tree lot with chemicals to prevent insects. --Use a shop vac to vacuum up pine needles, tinsel and other small debris from where the tree once sat. --Put used wrapping paper into the recycling bin -dont burn it in the fireplace. --Tree sap on tile or wood floors, or on protective cloths, can be cleaned with warm water and soap. Sap on the carpet should be dabbed with a cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol until the sap comes up. --Take down outdoor Christmas lights and decorations in clear weather. Work with a partner and use a sturdy ladder for lights on the roof eaves. Some DIYers replace burnt bulbs when they take down the lights, but I usually dont, as I often have to replace burned or broken bulbs next holiday season anyway. Wrap the strands around a piece of cardboard to keep them from tangling, and store in a dry, cool place until next year. HOME TIP: To clean up tinsel stuck in the carpet, I put my grandkids to work by having them put on thick socks, stick folded-over duct tape all along the bottoms, and scoot around the floor! It works great! -Mary B., Watertown, Mass. Send your questions or tips to email@example.com, or write This Is a Hammer, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.
