County has about 80,000

is one of the major reasons
Harvest Time decided to
open a clinic.
"We have families com-

ing everyday for food assis-

surveys, a majority of them
have no insurance."
The clinic will offer basic
health care, such a flu care,
but it will be limited to the
types of doctors who vol-
unteer their time.
Harvest Time does
expect that about 6,000-
10,000 residents a year will

Who's running

The political landscape for
Seminole County could
change in August, as early
voting begins Aug. 9 and the
primary is Aug. 24.
With County Commis-
sion and School Board seats
up for grabs, your vote could
be pivotal for the future of
Seminole County.
Here is what the candi-
dates say they will do for
the district:

Donald Epps, who has
raised about $8,000 dur-
ing his campaign, says he
brings a different perspec-
tive to the race for District
4 because he is an outsider.
He wants to bring his val-
ues that he learned from his
20 years of owning a family
lawn care business to serve
the citizens. Epps says that
he is a listener and that his
experiences in large busi-
ness at Lockheed Martin
since 1981 can help the dis-
trict save money.
If we can save millions

win Adams, who has raised
more than $6,000 for his
campaign, says he is tired
of the government wasting
the taxpayers' money.
Adams, a former Semi-
nole County commissioner
from 1994 to 1998, says his
in industrial engineering
makes him the most quali-
fled candidate. He wants
to grow jobs, stop tax/fee
increases and prioritize
government services.
Adams said he was an
efficiency and productiv-
ity expert for Fortune 500
companies where he found
the most cost effective
approach to solve prob-
lems. He said the approach
to transportation in our
area is not good.
"The way the system is
designed is not cost effec-
tive, he said.

Diane Bauer is unopposed,
as her opponent did not
qualify, and automatically
wins back her seat on the
School Board.
This is one of the great-
est jobs out there she said.
Great enough that she
has been volunteering her
services to the school sys-
tem since 1974. Because
her opponent did not qual-

more time to focus on some
of the issues she is working
on *
Two things she will be
focusing on are the bud-

says that the budget needs
to be reflective of the cur-

that she is a proponent of
a zero-based budget, where
every dollar spent must be

"I have been involved
with everything from kin-
dergarten to AP computers
in High School," he said.
Ackerman wants to
focus on the budget prob-
lems that are plaguing the
county and could cost 400
people their jobs. He said
the biggest budget woe has
been the $22 million worth

of stimulus money that runs

one of such doctors who intends
to volunteer is Dr. Don Colbert,
who has seen Harvest Time grow
for more than 20 years and says
they need someone to help with
the medical side of things.
Colbert has been working with
Harvest Time for the last year to get
the clinic up and running.
"It's almost a perfect, ideal sce-
nario," he said.
tified in family practice since 1987,
said that this clinic is a big need for
the community because of the high
amount of uninsured.
"I see a great need in those who
have slipped through the cracks
and have no insurance."
One such family is Brian and
Martha Millis of Sanford.
Brian, who built solar panel cir-
cuit boards, was laid off when the

for more than two years and needs t

visit a free clinic, but even then
they cannot afford it.

she expects a little more
than 20,000 items at the
actual sale.
The way it works is that
families tag/price their
items online, print bar-
codes indicating the price
they set for each item and
then bring their items to
the drop-off location. Par-
ents don't have to be pres-
ent while their items sell.
Davenport said all items
then go through a hand
safety inspection by vol-
unteers to ensure they are
quality goods before they
ever make it to the shop-
ping room floor.
She said as consignors,
individuals earn 65 to 70
percent of the sale, a much
higher percentage than
other consignment sales,
Davenport said, while the
other percentage goes
toward venue cost, market-
ing, equipment, incentives,
personnel costs, insurance '
royalties, etc.,
Items that don't sell,
however, go to the Mustard
Seed of Central Florida, a
non-profit furniture and
clothing bank established
in Central Florida in 1984,
so that "everything stays
right here," Davenport said.
Michelle Lyles, Mustard
Seed of Central Florida
executive director, said Just
Between Friends is a great
service and opportunity for
families to get a wide range
of items for children and
teens. Lyles said Davenport
is "doing an amazing job in
serving the community."

between moms is the big-

Ginger Bailey, a first-time

Friends from none other
than her own friends.

we had to get over was that
the school was coed. We

change and we have also. I
can't tell you what memo-

few days brought back to

-William S ron

Summer time is, so I now
understand, for school
reunions and vacations or a
combination of both. Well,
not sure which category I
fall into, but I did both. My
college, Mary Washington '
now called the University
of Mary Washington, is in
Fredericksburg, Va. The
school decided to hold our
class reunion in June. My
former roommate, suit-
emate and I decided not to
attend but to do our own
thing, since we hadn't seen
each other like since the
1960s. That's how long it
has been,
My roommate lives
just outside colonial
Williamsburg in Governor's
Landing. We all decided to
meet, and I would fly in to
Richmond, Va., first and go
from there. Dee, my room-
mate, and her hubby, Al '
met me and off we went -
road trip to their home
where we spent two days
in Williamsburg. Just like
old times, we clicked as if
we haven't seen each other
in two weeks. We looked
through all the picture
albums from way back
when and played the game
"who is that and is this
what's her name?"
Next day, we took a road
trip to Richmond to visit
my house, her house, our
schools and high school
with bars and security
gates to get in the front
door. It was in total shock
especially when we learned
that they mounted cameras
going 24/7. We had a secu-
rity guard ask why we were
taking pictures of the high
school. That will go outside
the memory book. Dee and

I left shortly after visiting
other old haunts, plus the
. .
Virginia Museum of Fine
Arts, Maymont Park, the
old drug store where I used
to work and our favorite
movie spot.
Then we did a road trip
back to her home and
toured William and Mary
College, which has grown
by leaps and bounds and is
still lovely in the old brick
style of the Governor's
Mansion. Note: Most all
homes and state buildings
in Virginia are built with
brick and the style seems
to stay the same wherever
you go.
Dinner that evening
was a road trip to the
Yorktown-Gloucester area.
We passed one of the Tall
Ships on the York River,
which you could board for
a tour for $60. That was a
no, so we ventured on to
dinner in Gloucester to
dine on the River York.
The road trip back
home was a drive through
Jamestown, which is quite
commercialized but still
a site to see. Sorry to say
John Smith, Pocahontas
and John Alden were not at
Dee and I arrived
in Fredericksburg on
Wednesday and met our
suitemate Rita at the motel.
Another click from the
past, we settled into our
motel and took off for
our destination Mary
Washington University. We
arrived at College Avenue
and parked the car ready to
hike down the pavers' path
of the official buildings
- administration, library,
science, etc. But what took

Gregory it will be better.

October is the month
when we typically devote
a column to Domestic
Violence Awareness, but in
light of the recent murder
of Sanford resident Jackie
Miller, it seemed appropri-
ate to raise the topic now.
There are also a couple of
events in August and in the
months to come support-
ing Safehouse of Seminole '
so what better time for
the community to become
more engaged in this criti-
cal issue.
In 2009, more than
2,200 cases of domestic
violence were reported in
Seminole county including
eight murders, one case of
manslaughter and 1,351
arrests. When you realize
that a much larger percent-
age of domestic violence
occurrences or allegations
go unreported, the number
is staggering. For those of
you who may be new to
Seminole County or new
to reading this column,
it may surprise you that a
fairly affluent area such as
Seminole County has this
level of domestic violence.
The truth is that domes-
tic violence is a devastating
issue that cuts across eco-
nomic, ethnic and educa-
tional lines.
On the surface, domes-
tic violence appears to be
someone else's problem,
the private business of
other couples who have
made their choices and
must find their own ways to
deal with them. However
most adults are not trained
to recognize or deal with
the issue. It cannot be
loved, debated or logically
explained away. It will not
dissolve by a woman doing

as she is told, being on her
best behavior, or changing
her appearance to some
unrealistic perception of
perfection. Many abusers
and victims were childhood
victims of domestic vio-
lence themselves. Children
who witness it and live
with it often grow up to
imitate the same behaviors.
Only with professional help
can couples and families
work their way through
these complex issues of
control, power, fear and
lack of self-esteem.
Fortunately, over the last
15 years, many community
partners, business spon-
sors and law enforcers have
joined together to support
SafeHouse of Seminole,
which provides resources,
programs, prevention
and volunteer opportuni-
ties to women, men and
families who are in cri-
sis. From a 24-hour crisis
hotline, referrals, advocacy
and counseling to case
management, safety plan-
ning, clothing and food,
SafeHouse provides a com-
prehensive list of services
and answers for those who
need it most. According to
their website, in addition
to providing a safe haven,
the focus is to enhance
and develop creative and
effective intervention and
prevention initiatives to
reduce violence in the com-

John Secor, a commercial
leasing broker for Exit Real

was struggling last year.
"The tenants are feeling
a better vibe now than that
they have a more respon-

this translates into envelopes in a

never knows what they'll find hid-

When planting time finally
arrives, label information is for-
warded to a stake at the head of
the growing bed. Along with the
genetic code stored in each seed,
my data is a picayune but necessary
step in the process of growing my
food. Let's not take this simple, but
complex stepping-stone of human
existence for granted. As Thomas
Jefferson said, "Gardening is a way
of showing that you believe in

your seed order. All delivered to

Local sources are limited, but
may have proprietary advantages.
Saved seeds from last year's crop

to a personally productive peak.
Selecting the best crop example
from which to save seeds may
eventually produce a regionally
outstanding strain. By trading your
own seed stock with other local
gardeners, you join a rarified and
exclusive microcosm of humans!
I find local retail availability
rather disappointing as most seed
racks are stocked with many sea-
sonal or geographic misfits. A word
of caution: when buying seeds off a
rack at a garden center, make sure
that rack was stored in the air con-
ditioned section of the store and
not irrigated along with the nurs-
ery plants. Also note, Florida seed
vendors must clear their racks and
begin with next year's inventory in
August (sort of like car dealers).
Labeling and securing seeds is
almost as important as obtain-
ing them. Store seeds in a cool,

I recently spent an uneasy night
after watching the movie "Food,
Inc." a documentary about
where our food comes from and
how it's produced only assuaged
the next morning by immersing
myself in a deep accumulation of
seed catalogs. While most chil-
dren envision gardening as simply
the process of poking seeds into
dirt, my contemplation of a seed
is radically different. Seeds, as the
purveyor of genetic information in
a storable and transportable repro-

ductive capsule, are the harbinger
of human evolution and society.
We need to respect a seed's existen-
tial being to a much greater extent
in our modern world.
With the beginning of our year-
round gardening season looming (I
consider summer our off-season),
now is the time to marshal our
resources. Using the Internet to
find a favorite seed variety is an
especially productive way to con-
duct a timely search. Specialty,

A few seconds after Emily
Muscatello said hello with
beaming blue eyes and an
outstretched hand, she's
quickly leading the way
behind a twisting labyrinth
of closed doors toward the
back of a Sanford boarding
A maze of greenish gray
cubicles fills the floor of
the final room, about half
the size of a gymnasium, as
the echo of barking rico-
chets off 20-foot-tall neon
green cinder block walls.
Muscatello leads with her
feet, darting left, then right
through the maze of cubi-
cles holding at least a dozen
dogs. The walls are high
enough to keep dogs from
escapmg but Muscatello
says most are well behaved.
"Donna is a fabulous
boarder," she says as she
stops at the last door at the
back of the room.
She opens a sliding lock,
and an affable woman in
rub red li stick and fraZ-
Zled brown hair stands up
for the first time in hours,
her eyes just peeking over
the wall.
Hi, I'm Donna," she said.
Welcome to my kennel.
Donna Neale has been
living a claustrophobic's
nightmare for six days now,
as she steadily shakes hands
and smiles, happy for the
company. She's trapped
herself inside a 4-by-6 foot
kennel pen for 240 hours
t ht
sr gale doesn't look like
a woman who voluntarily
lives in a kennel. Bedecked
in old ewel and an
g j ry .
eclectic latently hippie-chic
outfit, she's a young Winter
Park grandmother who
years ago acted as a mother
to her sons' friends the
cool parent on a block of
much stricter ones.
What she doesn't look
like is a dog lover. But for


10 straight days she's living
like one.
"There are no luxu-
ries here she said, pick-
ing through a pile of eight
pillows that she lays down
every night to sleep just
above the purple linoleum
floor. Taller than the aver-
age woman, her head rests
on a black pillow with
white paw prints while her
feet nearly touch the oppo-
site wall.
It's like an apartment
in Manhattan," Muscatello
said of the cube's diminu-
tive size.
The only other hints of
a dog in this room are the
Dalmatian hat jokingly
given to Neale by a friend,
and the leftover fur cover-
ing her entire bed.
But make no mistake:

Neale loves animals. One
of her sons is caring for her
five dogs and three cats
while she's incarcerated
herself for charity at the
Dog Day Afternoon Kennel.
And she's not crazy, though
she said she'd have to be to
do what she's doing. She's
doing it all for a cause.
At the other end of more
than a week cooped up with
only the barking of dogs
and the glow of her lap-
top computer to keep her
company, she's hoping to
win $250,000. The chanc-
es are just slim enough to
keep her optimistic. When

"I had to use my son's

By then, the game was

towering grand slam in the
third inning, part of a five-

In the eighth, Bolling's
replacement, Kevin
Welborn, was seven bat-

a hit when the floodgates
opened. The Rats would go
on a wild five-run rally while
managing only one hit, tak-
ing advantage of small ball
tactics to bring the score to
Once that rally was over,
the Dawgs sealed the deal,

Sosa in the 19th minute to
bring the Kraze within a
goal of a tie, and then one
from Sergei Raad at the

was all Brilla, who scored
three unanswered goals in
the second half to win 7-2.
The scoring wasn't nearly
as high in the Kraze's game
against New Orleans (6-6-

was even wilder, with two
of the Kraze's top scorers,
Raad and Sosa, earning red
cards in the second half.

For the Kraze, another

Len g
for congress|2010

Illy name is Deon Long and I am running to represent
Floridn's 24th Congressional District in the ll2th
Congress of the United States.
The four (4) challenges that face the American
economy and are responsible for the current state of
the American economy are:
An insidious, disincentivizing, progressive tax
Inflationary monetary policy;
Deficit spending; and
Protectionist trade policies.

If I am sent to Washington to represent District 24, I
intend to remedy these problems by championing:
Passage of the FairTax;
A return to the Gold Standard;
Ratification of a balanced budget amendment; and
Implementation of a free trade regime.
With passage of FairTax
legislation I would advocate for
a constitutional amendment
negating the 16th Amendment.
This amendment could be
ratified temporaneously with a
balanced budget amendment.
I also support tort reform and
portions of Sarbanes-Oxley.
The aforementioned agenda
will provide a structural rebirth
of the American economy and
unleash the entrepreneurial
talents of the American citizenry.
This agenda will be a catalyst for
the devolution of power from a
centralized federal government
to the fifty (50) states as intended
by the Founding Fathers. I
believe that we should follow the
letter and the spirit of the Tenth
and Seventeenth Amendments.

Thank you and God Bless America.
