cut list


Facing a $56 million budget
shortfall, Seminole County
Public Schools unveiled a
list of cost-saving measures
at Tuesday's work session.
The recommendations
include eliminating 317
staff positions and closing
three facilities, including
the Environmental Studies
Superintendent Bill Vogel
was given the go-ahead to
begin notifying staffers that
35 their jobs are being cut. The
other proposed items, such
Studies Center, the Student
Museum and the Seminole
Truancy Alternatives for
Youth Center, will be dis-
cussed further at the School
Board's April 21 work ses-
The School Board asked
the community to sub-
mit suggestions as to ways
to reduce the $56.4 mil-
lion shortfall. One of those
included adjusting school
thermometers from . 76
degrees to 77 degrees, a net
savings of $500,000 a year.
Closing the Museum and
the two centers would save
about $213,000.
Sales tax revenues - a
main education fund-
ing source - continue to
decline as property values
fall. Since the beginning of
the 2007-2008 school year,
SCPS has shed almost $40
million from its budget,, a
reduction of 6.7 percent per
student. Enrollment also
continues to decrease.

Margie Hopkins had to leave her
tiny home when Tropical Storm
Fay flooded it last August. Now
the relocated Sanford resident
may never live there again, after
it was put up for condemnation
Monday, March 23.
Nine properties were under
consideration to be condemned
and leveled by the city, after code
enforcement officers cited them
for numerous violations.
Hopkins' nearly 50-year-old,
"92-square-foot home was one of
them. She was forced to evacuate
after water spilled in from torren-
tial rains that blanketed the area

Funding for roads takes hit


It's funding season for local
governments, and Oviedo is
looking north. The city sent
a contingent to Tallahassee
and Washington, D.C., in
March to try to scare up
some money and put a face
to a name among bigger
political circles. They came
back with good and bad
news from afar.
The bad news is a big
funding source for Oviedo's
State Road 419 and State
Road 426 road expan-
sion projects has seen its
own coffers gutted by the
declining home building
Florida's Transportation
Regional Incentive Program
is supposed to help pay for

the construction costs of
the widening, which goes
through the middle of
Oviedo's old downtown.
But that TRIP program is
largely funded by a tax on
home sales, which can be as
much as 70 cents per $100
in home value.
"We knew that the TRIP
funding sources are down,"
Councilman Stephen
Schenck said. "But we didn't
know by how much. They
dropped from $500 million
to $15 million this year."
That massive falloff in
revenue had some state leg-
islators talking about elimi-
nating the TRIP funding
program completely.
"That sort of died on the

vine," Councilman Dominic
Persampiere said.
Officials at the state level
told Oviedo representatives
that TRIP funding could
recover in the next few
years, and that funding will
likely be available when the
city needs it.
Persampiere said that he
didn't expect to come back
with more money after
traveling to Tallahassee on
Monday, but that it would
pay off in the long term.
"Sometimes folks feel
like you're going to come
back with a check in hand,"
he said. "It's really just
about waving the Oviedo
flag, putting a face to the
name Oviedo, and getting
Persampiere and
Schenck shook hands

with Florida Secretary of
Transportation Stephanie
Kopelousos and discussed
other ways to bring funding
to the multi-million dollar
expansion project.
But they looked even
further when Persampiere
went to Washington early in
March. The city had already
gotten $1.5 million as of
last year, but this time they
asked for $23.5 million as
part of a new appropriation
bill for highway funding.
The funding bill that
would provide that money
is still being written, and
may not be put to a vote
,until early next year.
"If it passes we feel very
confident that we could get
that money," Persampiere

Chuluota dodges statewide water hike


Thousands of water users

by as much as 75 percent in
the next year, but Chuluota

The Seminole County
village was the only com-
munity spared when Aqua

in Tallahassee to ask for a

Aqua Utilities had long
felt pressure from the local
commimity to avoid rais-
ing rates to customers of
its Chuluota water treat-
ment plant. For more than
a decade, residents have
complained about water
quality problems. The water
is cloudy and smells like
eggs, local activist Deborah
Schafer said, and residents

are afraid to drink it.
"People have sewer prob-
lems too," Schafer said.
"They've got water backing
up into their bathtubs."
Though the water utility
provider has taken steps to
upgrade the Chuluota water
treatment facility to pro-
vide better water, residents
continue to complain about
issues that have plagued the
city far into distant mem-
When residents discov-
ered that Aqua Utilities was
attempting to raise rates for
the third time in two years,
they were furious, starting
a letter-writing campaign
and lobbying the FPSC to
not allow the rate hike. They
succeeded, for now.
"My guess is they really
thought about everything
that we brought to them
and realized that it wouldn't
be fair until we had water
quality that was drinkable,"
Schafer said. "I don't think

was a pretty big battle."
Schafer and Adams said
they expect an appeal from

Adams that they were work-
ing on two new treatment
methods to improve water

MUD I Residents can show support for the Environmental Center on April 21

< continued from the front page

Center is not leaving the Center's
fate in the county's hands. Last year,
they raised $20,000 in private dona-
tions to keep the Center's fifth-grade
program going, which includes the
popular "mud walk." This year, they
hope to double that, and are already
well on their way, raising more than
$27,000 in private donations.
They don't know yet how much
it's going to cost to keep the Center's
current staff - one teacher, two
full-time assistants and two part-
time assistants, said Pat Burkett,
who co-founded the Center near
Longwood. She is still hoping the
School Board will cover s6me costs.
"We are hoping they will be able
to give enough to keep them open
- so they don't have a brain drain,"
she said. "Once it's lost it will be
nearly impossible to get it back."

Seminole County's two-day nature education program, known best for its mud walk,
needs donations to keep going. Donate online by visiting KeepSeminoleBeautiful.
org/SCESCDonations.aspx. You can also send donations to the Friends of the
Environmental Studies Center, P.O. Box 522161, Longwood, FL 32752-2161. Make
checks payable to the Foundation for Seminole County Public Schools, and write
Environmental Studies Center Program Fund in the "for" or "memo" line.

The Center houses an assortment
of animals that will be forced to
relocate if the Center shuts down.
"We would have to give some-
body our snakes and let the turtles
loose," she said, citing that such

of the student program. "It sounds

Pray for the Fargo flood victims

By Karen McEnany-Phillips

Please plan on attending
the first major community
meeting of the Seminole
County rural areas to define
the final plans for the first
phase of the Rural Heritage
Center. The workshop will
be held on Saturday, April
4, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30
p.m. at the Historic Geneva
School House at First and
Main streets.
Here is the state-
ment from Christopher
Stapleton, president of
the RHC: "We are in the
final stages of assuming
responsibility of the deed
to the Historic Geneva
Schoolhouse for the pur-
pose of creating a com-
munity learning center
celebrating our living rural
heritage with hands-on
informal education. Its
purpose is to bring families
and communities together

by exploring the rich and
diverse heritage of rural
Florida that includes many
generations, cultures and
"Nestled along the banks
of the American Heritage
River of the St. Johns,
the rural east Seminole
County is one of the few
last remaining living rural
heritage areas of Central
Florida. From the stables
of Chuluota, the farms
and orchards of Black
Hammock to the ranches
and wilderness areas of
Geneva, this area repre-
sents a tradition that is still
strong but is in constant
threat from urban sprawl.
"This center will be
designed to offer all of
Central Florida an appre-
ciation and reason to cel-
ebrate the importance of
rural heritage from the

past, for the present and
into the future."
I've been trying to push
out of my mind that in less
than five months it will be
the one-year anniversary
of Tropical Storm Fay and
the historic flooding that
we're still recovering from.
Last August the river rose
three feet in less than one
day and we found ourselves
in uncharted, very watery
territory. Folks near the St.
Johns River are still replac-
ing lost landscaping, fixing
fences, building up low
areas, and making repairs,
wondering if it will be
-enough to stave off hurri-
cane season 2009.
But lest we feel too sorry
for ourselves we have only
to look out west to Fargo,
Bismarck and towns along
North Dakota's Red and
Missouri rivers, and we rec-
ognize that those folks are
facing even greater chal-
Imagine filling, lifting
and tossing hundreds of
sandbags in bitter winds,
cold and snow. I listened
to a Web cast of a young
woman, Jennifer Sondag,

in Fargo who made a short
video diary a few days
before the projected crest.
The snow slows down the
river but makes the enor-
mous sandbagging process
miserable. "We want to go
inside and be warm, but
we can't," Sondag said. "We
have to sandbag."
Police escorts took the
sandbag trucks to needed
locations and volunteers
lined the rivers, building
up dikes that seemed high
enough two weeks ago
before new projections
moved the river crest up
even higher. We under-
stand that a few inches
can mean the difference of
water in your house. They
faced another two or three
feet. Remember how we
watched the NOAA graphs
every hour to see where the
river was and where it was
projected to rise? They use
them as well and it's crazy
to see it off the chart in the
major flooding section -
it's as if they need to create
another category.
So we continue to pray
for Fargo and the folks
along those icy, blustery

banks. We wish them less
frigid temperatures but
not so much that the snow
melts too quickly. The rest
of the country assumes
the story is over. The river
crested and everyone's
pretty safe. We river people
know how fragile that bal-
ance is during the cresting
period and how people
live with the flooding for
months after the news cov-
erage is over. They seem
like resilient, tough folks
who were just living their
lives and got handed a life-
threatening challenge from
Mother Nature. We wish we
could bring you coffee.

HOMES I Three Sanford homes condemned, face final hearing

< continued from the front page

zigzagged over Central Florida for
nearly four days.
Seven months later, her home
was one step away from being bull-
dozed when she stood up at the
Sanford City Commission meeting
to ask them to spare it.
"It was my permanent residence
until the flood came," she said. In
front of city heads, Hopkins related
her fight to rebuild the home to
code. "I filed for permits - I did
everything but handing [the city]
my check."
Hopkins was granted a reprieve
from the city, and allowed to rebuild
her home within six months. If she

doesn't finish by then, she could be
in the same place again.
Homeowner Scott Wright was
baffled that his two adjacent homes
were even on the list when he stood
before the Commission at the same
meeting. Staring at pictures of his
home taken by the city that he
called outdated, he asked why the
city hadn't noticed that he'd fixed
the homes it was threatening to
"It doesn't look anything like this
anymore," Wright said. "There's new
carpet, paint, everything. I don't
understand the problem here."
Wright said he'd hoped to finish
turning the homes into affordable
housing for low-income Sanford
residents. But six months from

completing the project, he said the
city had left notices of condemna-
tion on the buildings, sometimes
conflicting with each other.
"One notice said the grass needs
to be mowed at one house, and the
other house's grass was fine, which
is impossible because they're both
mowed at the same time," Wright
The Commission spared half a
dozen of the homes, at least tempo-
rarily, after pleas from homeown-
ers, but not without stern warn-
ings from Mayor Linda Kuhn. She
said that at least one property had
been in bad condition for a decade.
Another home on Celery Avenue
was also a chronic problem, she

before demolition
"The property has been in a state
of disrepair for more years than I
can count," Kuhn said, scolding a'
homeowner. "Having been in this
position before - if we don't pro-
ceed with condemnation - then
we're right back where we started."
Three homes were condemned
by the city, and will be up for a final
demolition hearing before the bull-
dozers move in. That's a position
Kuhn said she doesn't want the city,
or homeowners, to be in, but that
it's the city's last resort for buildings
in disrepair.
"It's not our desire to see the
building torn down," Kuhn said.
"But we like to see some progress."

Bargains galore at Mt. Dora fair

I love a fun day. Once a
month my daughter-in-
law Donna and I meet for
lunch somewhere between
Oviedo and Leesburg; usu-
ally Mt. Dora. Love that
neat town. Well, last week-
end we hit the jackpot
with an antiques fair on
Donnelly Street, the main
drag in the city's down-
town. Bargains galore.
Donna was looking for
pieces for her second home
in North Carolina and I was
just looking. Well, between
an old trunk, Depression
glass, porcelain roosters,
jewelry, old bowls, etc., we
did well. Now mind you, we
looked like gypsies or bag
ladies carrying all that stuff
to the car. Good thing she
had her SUV with her that
Of course, the day wasn't
complete without having
lunch at one of our favor-
ite restaurants; we chose

one near the lake to dine
outside, as it was such a
lovely day. Can't do this in
Oviedo - no place to shop
or dine near a waterway
with music. At least Winter
Springs has more to offer in
outdoor entertainment.
Speaking of outdoor
entertainment, try Barnie's
Caf6 any Sunday night from
6-9 p.m. for their Sunday
Night Acoustic performers
from our area. Songs of all
genres and decades - from
classics that everyone loves
to catchy originals - are
played. Enjoy the acoustic
sounds of guitar, bass and
percussion while enjoying
a wide variety of Barnie's
This Sunday is Palm
Sunday and the following
week is Easter week and
we all have big plans with
family and friends. Have a
* happy and fruitful time and
I hope the Easter bunny is

good to all the little ones.
A few things to do for
fun or places to go: The
World Festival, 4-9 p.m.
Saturday, April 4, will be
held at the Metro Life
Church, 910 S. Winter Park
Drive, Casselberry. The
Rotary Club of Casselberry
will feature 11 perfor- '
mances of authentic folk
dance, music and acrobats
of Asia, Middle East, Europe
and Central America.
Performers will be fully
adorned in their colorful
costumes. There will be

Crime, arrests and

the Oviedo Police Department

By Lt. George Ilemsky

Coughing for a buzz
On March 24 Oviedo Police
responded to the Winn-
Dixie to take a report of
shoplifting. Evidently, one
of the perpetrators stated
he stole three bottles of

not so high. He received a

dog. The intoxicated indi-
vidual started to take hand-
fuls of condiments without
using the supplied serving
utensils and began flinging
the condiments all over the

taminating the condiments.

the coffee bar. These actions
subsequently resulted in his
arrest for disorderly intox-
ication and criminal mis-

reportedly left unsecured
along with the front door.
On March 28 a 2003
blue Nissan Sentra SE-R was
reported stolen from the

plainant told police that he
left his vehicle in the park-'
ing lot of the 7-Eleven when
he was arrested on March

on March 28, the vehicle
was gone.
On March 28 a Hispanic
male was described as the
individual who filled a shop-
ping cart full of groceries
from the Albertson's super-
market and left all points

attempt to pay for the gro-
ceries. The perpetrator then
abandoned the groceries on
the outside of the supermar-
ket and fled the area toward
Mitchell Hammock Road.
Albertson's waived prosecu-
tion since they recovered all
the groceries.

battery case is also pending.
On March 29 an argu-
ment between father and
son over the father's request
to have his son take care of
his sister resulted in the son
being charged with domes-
tic battery. The son was play-
ing video games, and when
he attempted to leave, the
father allegedly punched his
son in the back of his head,
prompting the son to turn
around and push his father
who subsequently fell. A fry-
ing pan and mop were also
instruments in the fracas.
Additionally, the father's
role is being requested to
be reviewed by the' State
Attorney's Office to see if
more charges may be filed.

Right is right, even if every-
one is against it; and wrong
is wrong, even if everyone
is for it.

Locals featured in film festival

,i F ',i.:i
Three local filmmakers will make their debut at the 18th
annual Florida Film Festival in Maitland.
The festival, hosted by the Enzian Theater, runs from
Friday, March 27, to Sunday, April 5. Organizers expect
more than 20,000 people to attend screenings of hun-
dreds of films at both the Enzian, at 1300 S. Orlando Ave.,
and Regal Winter Park Village, at 510 N. Orlando Ave.

"Seventh Moon"
University of Central Florida gradu-
ate Robin Cowie is best known for
being one of the producers of "The
Blair Witch Project." His film "Sev-
enth Moon" starring Amy Smart will
make its East Coast debut at the En-
zian midnight Saturday, April 4.
Although Cowie lives three
streets away from the Enzian, this
is a homecoming of sorts for him.
The full-length cut-of "Blair" played
at the Enzian long before the film
gained notoriety.
"I've had a long and happy rela-
tionship with the Enzian, but this
Is the first time one of our films has

Chloe Kimmig, 2, smiles for the camera while her mother teaches a Baby Boot Camp class in Sanford. The class teaches new mothers how to get back in shape.

How new mothers get their old bodies back


It's a bit dark inside as three women lit
by dim ceiling bulbs bang out impro-
vised pushups on wood benches, sur-
rounded by locked-down metal doors.
It's 9 a.m. on a Monday and boot camp
is in session.
For the next hour or two they'll
lunge down hundreds of yards until
their legs burn, do pushups until their
arms say "stop," and walk a few miles
in between, pushing a stroller all along
as they chase a bit of Heidi Klum's
The famously fertile supermodel
managed to strip away all evidence of
motherhood within months of giving
birth to her babies, just about the time
that a new fitness company was giving
other mothers a shot at a postpartum
physique to die for.
Welcome to Baby Boot Camp, where
certified personal fitness trainers whip
mothers back into shape. The idea
came about in 2001 from a California
personal trainer - and new mother
- who wanted to bring new moth-
ers and babies together in a fitness

class, eliminating the hassles of hir-
ing babysitters, scheduling personal
training sessions and getting a. gym
Three and a half years ago when she
was sporting her own baby bump, that
idea caught Sanford resident Kimberly
Kimmig's eye.
"I saw it in a magazine years ago
when I was pregnant with my first
daughter, then after I had my son I
thought I'd do it," Kimmig said. Only
a few months later, she was teaching
her own class.
A Stetson grad and certified per-
sonal trainer who was trained by real
boot camp instructors, Kimmig settled
right into teaching mothers how to
get their pre-baby bodies back.
Rolling along the sloping tiles inside
the Seminole Towne Center Mall,
Kimmig's 2-year-old daughter Chloe
shoots a grin toward her mother as she
picks up speed. Six-month-old Ezekiel
in the next stroller seat closes his eyes
as the rhythmic thrum of each passing
floor tile sings him to sleep..
"The fact that you can show your
kids how to exercise, it's really neat,"
Kimmig said. "Chloe actually likes it."
Inside the cool setting of the mall,


Kimmig breezes along in between
stops, trailed by a small handful of
mothers chasing firmer physiques in
a more comfortable setting than the
average gym.
Just as they roll past the Bath and
Body Works, they stop to pick up some
exercise bands and start building mus-
They're nearly alone inside the mall
at this hour. It's not open until 10 a.m.,
so the hundreds of yards of quiet cor-
ridors are all theirs.
They'll stretch against pillars and
work out with the help of benches as
they turn the shopping center into
their own air-conditioned personal
They'll also race through the empty
parking lot, chasing each other on
centipede runs, one mother leapfrog-
ging the other as they play catch-up
and burn fat at the same time. It's all
a carefully orchestrated exercise in
"That's part of the whole concept -
the founder wanted it to be a simple
class, using stuff around you and just
being creative," she said. "We just try to
have fun out there."

Lunging forward through an empty parking lot, Kimberly Kimmig pushes a stroller as her class creeps along in the
morning sun. The class is held Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the Seminole Towne Center Mall before it opens.

THIS WEEK in sports history

Jackie Robinson made his debut as the first black baseball player
on a modem major league team, the Brooklyn Dodgers. Fifty years
Later, the MLB permanently retired his uniform number, 42, for all
players on all league teams.


It's the final month of baseball
before the playoffs, and four teams
in Seminole County could end up
neck and neck as they approach the
Lake Mary, Lake Brantley, Lake
Howell and Lyman all are pressing
deep into the season with strong
winning records.
But Lyman may prove a team to
watch, after dominating some local
teams and coming close to upset-
ting 6A powerhouses Lake Mary and
Lake Brantley earlier in the season.

: Tonight at 7 p.m. could be the
game of the week as Lake Mary
takes on Lyman in Ram country.
The teams have met only once this
season, with the Rams coming away
with a narrow 3-2 win over the
Greyhounds - and the Rams did
that at Lyman.
That was one of the closest games
of the year for the teams, which are
both capable of offensive slugfests,
but have relied more heavily on
dominating pitching and defense to
keep other teams' batting in check.
But the Greyhounds have proven
shaky in some situations, including

confusing losses to Seminole and
Oviedo. The Lions teed off on the
Greyhounds with a 10-1 win last
Friday. This game against Lake Mary
will be the Greyhounds' chance at
Lake Howell is looking for its
own share of the limelight, with
a strong streaking season so far.
Twenty games in, the Silver Hawks
haven't had back-to-back losses all
year, while stringing together four
streaks of three or more wins.
The Hawks have proven vulner-
able against some underappreci-
ated teams, though, losing handily

to Hagerty on March 17 by a score
of 8-13.
The Hawks will get a second
shot at Seminole on Tuesday, before
entering two weeks of facing the
toughest teams in the county.
The Patriots will be looking to
double up on Oviedo, traveling to
the Lions' den tonight, April 3, at 7
p.m. to try for a second win. On St.
Patrick's Day the Patriots won 6-3
over the Lions.
But the Patriots won't get a shot
to avenge two losses to Lake Mary
until the playoffs, which start in a
little more than three weeks.

Knights fall in NCAA tournament in Chattanooga


The odds were stacked
against the Lady Knights
as they marched onto the
court in Chattanooga,
Tenn., for their first NCAA
tournament appearance in
10 years. By the end, they
shocked a national basket-
ball powerhouse, even if
they did leave the court on
the losing end of the score-
The Knights would fall
85-80 to the Tar Heels, after
a run in the final minutes

that would set UNC's play-
ers on their heels, trying to
stop a relentless comeback.
And sophomore Chelsie
Wiley was at the center of it
all, with a 22-point perfor-
mance that led her team in
a surprising turnaround.
"We had a little break-
down here and there, but
for the most part I think our
basketball team did a fantas-
tic job," Coach Joi Williams
said in a post-game press
The Knights were down
by 14 points with only 33
seconds left in the game
- the biggest point gap

they faced the entire game.
But when UNC's defense
seemingly shut down, the
Knights' offense fired up,
going on a wild shooting
spree that would bring
them within two shots of a
tie game.
The Knights' scoring
stampede took them to
within 5 points, as they
scored 9 points and stole
turnovers from the Tar
Heels repeatedly to bring
the score ever closer.
But as the clock ran out
on the Knights' comeback,
they ran just short of an
upset on the scoreboard.

The Knights would out-
score the Tar Heels 46-41
after halftime, having trailed
by 10 points near the break.
Wiley's strong shooting
over the course of the full
game would net the Knights
15 points from 3-point
range alone. She shot 5-11
from outside the arc.
Fellowsophomore Emma
Cannon scored 15 of her 18
points after halftime, and
racked up 14 rebounds for
the Knights - besting all of
UNC's players.
Three of the Knights
would score in the double
digits in the high-scoring

game, despite some long
bench time for players when
fouls got out of hand.
Andmanyofthose players
will return next year with a
long playoff run under their
belts. The Knights team,
comprising almost entirely
freshmen and sophomores,
will return at nearly full
strength next season, as
they'll suffer little attrition
to graduation.
After their third first-
round loss at the NCAA
tournament in the team's
history, they could be on
their way back next season.
