Students from Lake Mary and Seminole High School representing Students Working Against Tobacco rallied for the support of Oviedo City Council members Monday night in their effort to ban the sale and marketing of city. Holding tobacco products that looked more like candy and mints than known carcinogens, senior Shirley Castillo, pushed for a resolution from the city in support of the ban. Most adults dont even reor recalling what the product is, but its everywhere and its marketed primarily toward children, Castillo said. More than 7 percent of middle school students and 21.7 percent of high school students in Semitobacco products at least once, according to the 2012 Florida Youth Tobacco Survey. That survey shows that 7.1 percent of middle school students and 15.8 percent of high school students in Seminole County have used tobacco in the past 30 days. Castillo came forward holding a basket full of candy and tobacco products, pointing out the similarities in the packaging. City Council members perused through the basket and looked closely at the different brightly colored packages. The wrappers look and feel the same, Lake Mary senior Logan Saucer said, as a marketing ploy used to entice young people. If its hard for you to discern the difference between these products, how would the aver age youth? Saucer said. They wouldnt, especially during a rushed trip to the convenience store. By working together, we can protect the youth and prevent the next generation from becoming tobacco users here in Seminole County. The Oviedo City Council asked to have it submitted and placed on a future meeting agenda. Im embarrassed to say that I havent heard of this and actually Im rather appalled at the way its targeted toward children, Councilwoman Cindy Drago told the students. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I appreciate your dedication. The presentation left Mayor Dominic Persampiere better informed as well. A lot of these products that they showed us this evening I wasnt even aware existed, and you heard many of the members say the same thing, Persampiere said. The children are right; they look like candy for gosh sakes and its tobacco products. The awareness that theyre bringing to it is commendable. The students effort against Seminole County. The same resolution has already been passed in Lake Mary, Casselberry, Sanford and Longwood, with Altamonte Springs currently pending. They plan to visit the city of Winter Springs and the Seminole County Board of Commissioners in the coming months. A lot of youth in the state are using these products, a lot more than anticipated by the adults, Castillo said. Whenever we have adults that support our efforts, its really important to us.

Seminole County residents may have to play the waiting game before they can expect to see the Cross Seminole Purple Heart Trail completely linked together a result of numerous nalized nearby. The 23-mile trail transitions from the Orange County trail system at the intersection of Aloma Avenue and Howell Branch Road to Lake Mary and Altamonte Springs, snaking through Oviedo and Winter Springs along the way. But in the middle a few gaps remain, forcing trail users to walk along the shoulders of two state highways with missing sidewalks, or to turn around and go home. A gap in downtown Oviedo stretches from the intersection of Smith Street and State Road 434 to the intersection of Broadway Street and Geneva Drive, still waiting to be completed. Seminole County Commission Chairman Bob Dallari said that the road-widening project of Broadway Street is all that stands in the way of linking the trail together. Were not taking it through downtown Oviedo just yet because were waiting for the road project to be widened, Dallari said. We dont want to put a trail down and then a couple years later rip it up; thats not a good way to spend tax money. The county addressed a longstanding safety issue just south of the gap last year when they trail bridge over Red Bug Lake Road. But another gap in the trail to the northwest along State Road 419 poses an additional safety concern. The trail stops at Layer Elementary School and continues at Soldiers Creek Park to the north, forcing residents to walk along the busy road with no sidewalk for more than a mile and a half before continuing on with the trail.Frogger continues between trails Please see TRAILS on page 2 PHO T O BY TIM FREED THE V OICE Bicyclists ride the trail in Oviedo, where gaps between paved areas are closing, albeit slowly.TIM FREED The Voice Seminole County students push governments to ban tobacco products that look like candy Outside construction continues to slow down completion of Oviedo and Winter Springs gaps in the Seminole County bike trail system

Seminole Voice 2013 Dallari attributed this gap to the design and permitting process of a future CSX railway that will block the path. Anytime you walk along a road, potentially a busy road, theres safety issues, Dallari said. But we cant build a trail unless we have all of the permitting done. Thats what were working on right now. Between Layer Elementary School and Soldiers Creek Park sits 419 Metal and Auto Recycling, also potentially blocking the path of the trail. But owner Bart Phillips said he supports the ing the donation of land in front of his business to help close the trails gap. I think its a great thing, because there are so many people who are using the trails for exer cise and to get out there into the nature areas, Phillips said. Its beautiful. I use it myself. Oviedo resident Matt Westerby walks the Seminole County trails every week and looks for ward to seeing the entire grid completed I think its good to have green space in any type of community where people can congregate and actually go see people and interact with humans as opposed to the virtual world everybody seems to live in, Westerby said. Mark Leyden, a Melbourne resident visiting Oviedo, said he understood why the trail would take so long to complete. Good things come to those who wait, Leyden said. If its something really this good and free, its understandable that it might take a while. For Seminole County residents, the wait began two decades ago. The county began work on developing the trail system as early as 1995, envisioning a network of trials that would connect to surrounding counties. Dallari acknowledged the sigmunity and the importance of Basically the trail is building a community, Dallari said. Its linking communities through other ways of transportation. So many times people just get in their car and just keep on driving, but to really build a community, it has to walkable. Its a commitment we made to all the citizens back in the s, and were going to adhere to it.

As cancer survivors, its our job to carry the torch for others, and I thought this was a great way to show support for the cancer community, Kain said. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a big deal at Tre Bella. They go all out, raising money for local cancer charities like Ribbon Runners. es, pink hearts for donations and do pink hair all month as well, said Kain. Weve raised over $1,000 so far this year. A visit from Pink Patrol was just the boost the ladies at Tre Bella needed. Its really cool to show that they care, that they show support Kain said. Im a third-generation cancer survivor, so it means a lot to me to feel the community support. Jenni Heiselman is also apas a survivor and like Kain, she was excited and appreciative to receive a visit from Summers and the Pink Patrol.

It was a wild swing in rankings after a wild win. On Oct. 18 the UCF Knights stunned a Louisville home crowd that had been there to celebrate an undefeated teams homecoming. It was a Knightmare of a homecoming for the Cardinals, with UCF coming back to edge them 38-35. Im really proud of the players, UCF Head Coach George OLeary told ESPN after the game. They got down 28-7 and they kept clawing away. The Knights scored 24 unanteam this season to lead Louisville at any point in a game. They of minutes in the second half, scoring three touchdowns in less The go-ahead score that ended team to not trail in any game this season came off kicker Shawn up 31-28. The Cardinals struck back after that kick, marching down the lead with only three minutes left and hand the ball back to the Knights. In the game-winning drive, quarterback Blake Bortles would pass for 75 yards in 11 plays to run out most of the clock and take the score that would put the Knights on top for good. In the wake of the upset win, the Knights were catapulted into four Top 25 rankings at once. Theyre No. 25 in the USA Today poll, No. 23 in the BCS standings, No. 21 in the AP Top 25, and No. 16 in ESPN.coms Power Rankings.

KNIGHTS | T eam will need to transcend past of losses and near-misses against overmatched opponents CONTINUED FR OM P AGE 7 ARCHIVE PHO T O BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE V OICEQuarterback Blake Bortles has had stronger performances against difcult opponents compared to easy ones. Hosting South Carolina he threw for 358 yards. Huskies still have a shotThe Hagerty Huskies have had a week to recover from the 24-8 loss to Winter Park, with district rival Timber Creek in their sights for a Friday night home showdown at 7:30 p.m. And its a must-win game for the Huskies, two district games of the season to have a chance to force a playoff game to go to the postseason. Theyll need to shake off the ghosts of past district games to have a shot. Against Winter Park, they had a chance early on, but watched it slip away, with the score deadlocked through the ploded for 14 points in the second quarter and then cruised from there. Winter Park at 3-0 in district play has already secured the top playoff spot, but the second spot is still up for grabs by the remaining four teams. Hagerty has games, as has Timber Creek. A win against Timber Creek would put the Huskies at 1-2 and within striking distance of University, which is 2-1 on the season, and Oviedo, which is 1-1 with two district games left. The Huskies must beat Timber Creek to keep their playoff dreams alive. Next week, the Huskies travel to face Univer sity in another must-win. OviedoOviedo traveled to face the Wildcats on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in one of their toughest challenges of the season. The Lions will need the win the next two district games to avoid a playoff with Hagerty, University, or Timber Creek. Winter Springs The Bears have continued their surprising season with a 19-13 win over Ocoee on Oct. 18. With a 3-1 district record and two games to go, they must win at least one to have a shot at the playoffs, and if they win two theyll clinch. Oak Ridge already has clinched a 7A District 4 playoff spot. They were slated to face East Ridge Friday, with a kickoff time of 7:30 p.m. ISAAC BABCOCK The Voice

For the past seven years or so, they have owned their own business and now it is time for them to move out of that business and back into the work force. The question for him is what next? The business helped him to build new skills, but at the same time the need for the skills he has a degree in have changed tremendously. He is at a turning point where he needs to determine what his next move will be. My suggestion is to make a list. I have talked about my list in this column before, but it seems to be coming up quite a bit in my discussions, so I thought I would bring it back. The list has four categories to elaborate on. They are passion, curiosity, skills and abilities, and ugh. The passion column should be a list of things you are really passionate about. What are the things that excite you or make your blood boil? The curiosity column consists of the things that make you go hmmmm. They are what you would like to learn more about. Your skills and abilities are just that, skills and abilities you bring to the table whether you learned them at work or not. The ugh column is the list of things you would rather not do. My ugh is payroll. Once you have the columns complete, it will start to look like some options for careers. You can use this information to research potential career descriptions to see if you qualify or need some schooling to reach the goal, and then tailor your resume to match. Do you have a story of a career transition success? I would love to hear it!Career swap? Time to list your skills Cobb is our new city manager.

Many of you are asking what happened to the chicken population in the downtown. We poked around and Chief Lars White did some investigative sleuthing and we found out some things you might like to know. 1) Ace Hardware stopped providing feed to the chickens and theyve noticed a decline in the population. Theyve also, on occasion, witnessed people taking chickens from the area. 2) Oviedo Glass reports that the boards that were once considered a roosting area behind the East Broadway Shops were removed when the landscaping declined. (This was not a city project.) 3) Evidence of remnants of feathers appear ing as if some wildlife may be feasting during the late night into morning. 4) Lawton Elementary reports a fox in the area near the school. 5) Neither Seminole County Animal Control nor the city is contributing to the reduction in numbers of chickens around downtown.A new manager and chicken news Mayor Dominic Persampiere OVIEDO CITY T ALK List passions, curiosity, skills and abilities, and what makes you say ugh.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its a good time for socializing, both with family and with friends. Your aspects also favor developing new relationships, any or all of which might become especially meaningful. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your success in handling a recent difficult situation prompts a request to handle another workplace problem. But this is one you should accept only if you get all of the relevant facts. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) New information about a past decision raises some unsettling questions from an old friend. Be prepared to explain your actions fully and, if necessary, to make adjustments. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This is not a good time to share personal secrets, even with someone youve known for a long while. What you dont reveal now wont come back to haunt you later. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Pushing yourself to meet a project deadline is admirable. But be careful not to leave out important details in your rush to complete your work and send it off. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Watch that you dont take on more than you can handle when offering to help someone with a personal problem. There might be hidden factors you werent told about.

Its a good idea to start now to prepare, so you can be ready to make the move when the time comes.
