Police nab man accused of stalking two students

By Brian McBride
News-Gazette Staff Writer

A local man who has prior
arrests for performing lewd
acts upon young females was
seized Tuesday by Kissimmee
police : after he allegedly
stalked two girls on their way
to school.

With a high profile string of
child abductions haunting the
nation, Kissimmee police said
two frightened 12-year-old
girls ran to a school resource
officer after being followed by
19-year-old Kissimmee suspect
Jacob Broyles, 1172 Stoupe
Road, while they were walking
to Kissimmee Middle School

Tuesday morning.

The incident began when
Broyles, driving a black four-
door Ford Escort, drove up to
the young victims and asked
them if they needed a ride.

“Based on his actions and
his past history, police felt he
may have been planning to
commit a crime,” said Sgt.
Ralph Moore.

Broyles was arrested three
times in Oklahoma last year
after calling young females to
his car while he was mastur-
bating, Moore said.

After the students refused
Broyles’ offer, they continued
to walk down the street, but

noticed the Ford still creeping
behind them. In an attempt to
hide as they feared his
advances, the victims began
walking behind some nearby
bushes along the road, police
reports said.

“They felt they could run
away easily (behind the bush-
es) if he tried something,”
Moore said.

Pursuing them all the way
to the school, the girls ran to
the officer and reported the
incident. When police spotted
his car near the school, they
stopped him and later placed
him under arrest for aggravat-
ed stalking.

Police investigators antici-
pate additional victims com-
ing forward after they learn
about the arrest.

“We don’t know who else he
may have called over to his
car,” Moore said. “Not only in
Kissimmee, but in either St.
Cloud or the unincorporated
area of the county.”

While there was no evi-
dence that Broyles intended
to harm the girls, city
Commissioner Steve Burke
referred to the nationwide
abductions, some ending in
murder, and requested
Tuesday night at the commis-
sion meeting that the city run

Mixed signals abound
about state of industry

By Sylvia L. Oliande

News-Gazette Staff Writer

Tourism leaders from around the state meeting in Kissimmee
last week tried to make sense of the state of tourism in Florida
today, nearly a year after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11

Mixed signals abound, with some analysts saying tourists are
back but others saying the industry has a long way to go before

it fully recovers.

But many industry repre-
sentatives attending the 35th
annual Governor's Conference
on Tourism at the Gaylord
Palms Convention Center said
they were "cautiously opti-
mistic" that the industry has
weathered the storm.

Jim Murphy, a local tourism
consultant and vice chairman
of the Osceola County Tourist
Development Council, said the
governor's visit started the
conference on an optimistic
note. He was happy with the
upbeat tone of the conven-
tion.

"The resiliency of our peo-
ple is incredible,” Murphy
said. "When we run into sce-
narios like this, I think you're
going to see we're very opti-
mistic. And if there's another
curve, not only a terrorist
attack but a natural event,
we're equipped to take it on
very well... | feel very, very
confident. I feel that we're in
good hands and we're going to
move on."

The conference, which was
put together by Visit Florida,
the state's tourism marketing
corporation, drew nearly 1100
people to Kissimmee — the
largest contingent in the histo-
ry of the event.

Group ends
fight over
convention
center site

By Brian McBride
News-Gazette Staff Writer

Once vowing to appeal an
Osceola Circuit Court Judge's
decision to dismiss a suit to
block negotiations between
Osceola County and Xentury
City over a planned $98.5 mil-
lion convention center, the
Orlando-Kissimmee Hotel &
Motel Association announced
this week it will join forces
instead to provide a voice
throughout the discussions.

John Kucik, managing part-
ner of Capone's dinner show
and Magic Castle hotels, who
is stepping down as chairman
of the association, said with
the group having just received
a hefty attorney fee, the hote-
liers don’t have the funds to
keep up the legal battle.

The basis for the lawsuit
filed on June 28 was that the
county failed to follow its own
and state regulations in adver-

School officials, union agree to 5.17 percent raises for teachers

By Charlie Reed of
News-Gazette Staff Writer

The Osceola County School
District and the local teachers
union have reached a tenta-
tive agreement to give educa-
tors an average 517 percent

- pay increase this year.

Under the proposed agree-

R]

ment, which teachers will vote
on in about two weeks, a first-
year teacher would earn
$30,000, an increase of $1600
from last year's starting salary.
Teachers at the top of the pay
scale would earn $48,000 com-
pared to $47,000 last year.

The salaries include a year-

ly step increase of at least
$1,000, plus in-service/merit
dollars earned in the past.
"We were happy with the
dollars," said Osceola
Classroom Teachers
Association chief contract
negotiator Peggy Leopold, a
teacher at St. Cloud High

School.
Excluding the step increas-
es, the district earmarked
about $950,000 for raises this
year, according to Leopold.
It's a considerable raise
from last year's 3.4 percent
increase in pay, Leopold said.
Part of the deal

also:

includes freezing employees’
insurance rates from last year,
despite a 43 percent increase
in costs for the district. =
Rates went up nearly $1400
per employee from the previ-
ous year, said Superintendent
Blaine Muse.

Raises
‘Continued from page A-1
~ The district will absorb the
additional $425,000 for insur-
ance coverage this year
instead of passing the hike on

to its employees.

Leopold said the pay
increase means more especial-
ly because raises will not have
to be spent on higher insur-
ance rates.

Teachers will hopefully see
their raises by the Sept. 20
payroll, Leopold said.

"I think the teachers will be
happy with what we could get
them this year," said Leopold,
who has been negotiating con-
tracts with the school since
1996.

OCTA President Tony
Donato, a dean at Kissimmee
Middle School, said he was
pleased with the deal.

"It was a giant step forward,
but we still have a long way to

go," Donato said.

As part of negotiations this
year, teacher salaries in
Osceola were compared with
those in the five surrounding
counties.

Osceola ranked in second
or third place in just about
every salary category, which
was a big accomplishment,
Leopold said.

This year the school dis-
trict will lobby to get
increased operating dollars
from the state to further
enhance teacher salaries.

Despite its status as the
fastest-growing in Florida,
Osceola continues to be one of
the lowest funded districts in
per-student allocations from
the Department of Education.

Last year a state-mandated
retention bonus of $850 was
given to classroom teachers

who met certain criteria
defined by the state and who
received a performance evalu-
ation of satisfactory or higher.
Instructional employees not
eligible for the legislated
bonus due to their positions
but who met the remaining
requirements also received
$850.

Lawmakers did not contin-
ue that allocation this year but
instead rolled that money into
the general fund for teacher
salaries.

Muse said although teach-
ers won't get a separate bonus
check this year, the
Legislature's decision gives
the district more flexibility.

"It was a nice incentive,"
Leopold said, "but the
Legislature is always changing
things on us, so it wasn't a big
surprise."

Tourism

Continued from page A-1

Gov. Jeb Bush announced that
visitors to Florida are nearly
at the number of those who
arrived before the attacks.

According to statistics com-
piled by Visit Florida, about
19.4 million people came dur-
ing April, May and June, only
two percent less than arrived
the year before. Moreover, the
number of visitors from
across the country was down
by less than 1 percent during
the second quarter of the fis-
cal year.

The number of internation-
al travelers, however, wasn't
as rosy.

Officials said overseas visi-
tors were down by 13.7 per-
cent and Canadian guests
were down by 8.4 percent
from the same time last year.

Analysts said those num-
bers were primarily attributed

to overseas visitors reluc-
tance to fly to the United
States and the low value of
Canadian currency relative to
the U.S. dollar.

Visit Florida officials also
said that for the first time in
several years, more people
traveled to the state by other
means of transportation than
by air — 50.7 percent vs. 49.3
percent.

Some of the optimism was
tempered, however, by news
during the week of a still-strug-
gling airline industry.

Vicki Escarra, Delta
Express executive vice presi-
dent and chief marketing offi-
cer for Delta Airlines, said in
October 2001, the industry saw
a reduction in passengers of
24 percent and now they're
down by 5 percent; similarly,
revenues were down by 37

percent in October and are
now down by 16 percent.

Escarra, who said 30 per-
cent of her company's rev-
enues come from Florida,
asked for the industry's help
in fighting federally mandated
security measures without
funding. She used the conven-
tion's theme, "From Surviving
to Thriving" to illustrate her
point.

"If airlines have to continue
to absorb the costs of new
security, the thrive part will
suffer," she said.

Delos Smith, senior busi-
ness analyst for The
Conference Board, said the
tourism industry is extremely
sensitive to events of the
world: facing a globalization of
the economic system, a grow-
ing discord around the world
and the roller coaster ride of

He said the employment
numbers are looking better, at
about 5.9 to 6 percent nation-
ally, but the state of the econo-
my is interpreted differently
depending on who is looking.

"I wish I could give you bet-
ter news that we are coming
out," Smith told a group of
tourism representatives.
There are a lot of signs.
Unfortunately they are mixed."

Barry Pitegoff, vice presi-
dent of research for Visit
Florida, said there was good
news to be had. Hotel occu-
pancy in the state was getting
back to where it was before
last fall, although the bed tax
collections were down by
about 113 percent because
hotel rates are down overall.

He said the industry is on
the mend. The final quarter of

2001 showed a 19 percent
decline over the previous year
with the impact of the attacks
and a slowing economy. But in
the first quarter of 2002,
tourism was off by just 4.5 per-
cent.

"Getting visitors back was
not as hard as we expected,"
Pitegoff said.

Most people at the confer-
ence agreed that the industry
has to respond to a new world
and cannot rely on operating
methods and marketing prac-
tices they had before the
attacks on Washington, D.C.
and New York City.

Pitegoff said major demo-
graphic changes, including the
aging of Americans and the ris-
ing Hispanic population, have
to be taken into account when
tourism leaders work to lure
customers.

tising for a potential develop-
ment partner.

The group had protested
the county's decision to nego-
tiate with Xentury City since
the board vote in May, saying
that all the benefits of a facility
on Xentury's property, which
is across the street from the
Gaylord Palms Resort and
Convention Center, would go
to Orange County to the north.

After the ruling was ren-
dered earlier this month, the
group initially planned to
appeal the decision.

“We just got a bill from our
attorney and it was about
$30,000,” Kucik said. “Given
that, the hoteliers in Osceola
County are extremely deep
down (financially) right now.
They have suffered enough.
It’s one of those things where
if you can’t beat them, join
them.”

If they did appeal, Circuit
Judge Jeff Miller would be like-
ly to continue to rule against
it, Kucik said.

Miller signed the order to
dismiss the suit with prejudice
for several reasons, including
that the association represent-
ing many small hotels and
motels along the tourist corri-
dor failed to show it had
standing to file the lawsuit.

Moreover, the group also
failed to prove a claim that
Xentury City did not show its
qualifications required to be
considered for the project,
namely that they've built at
least two similar projects, the
order said.

Xentury's proposal, the
order states, has a description
of the qualifications of the
entire development team and
of the company itself, which
meets the requirement.

“As we move past our initial
objections to the Xentury City
site, we must now work on get-
ting involved to ensure that
the interests of hotels on U.S
192 are not ignored and that
we become involved in the so-

ISSIMMEE

called convention corridor
group,” said Domien Takx,
incoming chairman of the
association and general man-
ager of the Four Points
Sheraton in Kissimmee.

The association had urged
the Osceola County
Commission to first talk with

their own choice, Austin-
based Landmark
Organization, which had

offered the county $1 million
just for the right to negotiate.

Association members have
said the site on which
Landmark wants to build, at
State Road 535 and Osceola
Parkway, would benefit resort
operators who were most
impacted by the economic
downturn following Sept. 11
terrorist attacks. A portion of
the site fronts U.S. Highway
192.

On the other hand, they
said Xentury City's site at
Osceola Parkway and
International Drive South —
about three miles away — is
too far from them to have any
positive impact for Osceola
County.

But supporters of the coun-
ty's process said that Xentury
City was the only one of the
three bidders to propose a
marketing tool that would
encourage convention plan-
ners to keep business in
Osceola County.

“We still think Landmark is
a better site, but we are going
to move forward,” Takx said.
“We will hopefully be visual-
ized in a better light with the
groups and organizations who
we have been at odds with.”

Commissioners ranked
Landmark second among the
three bidders who submitted
proposals to build a conven-
tion center and hotel.

“We are happy with their
(association) decision and we
are looking forward to work-
ing with them on many proj-
ects in the future,” said county
spokeswoman Twis Hoang.

Counties to share fire station

By Charlie Reed
News-Gazette Staff Writer

Public Information O

The Osceola County
Commission agreed Monday
to spend $400,000 to build a
fire station in Polk County to
serve the Poinciana area.

The station will be located
off Cypress Parkway near the
Osceola County/Polk County
line across from Solivita, an
active adult community.

Originally, Osceola and
Polk each had plans to build
two new separate stations in
Poinciana, said County
Commissioner Mary Jane
Arrington.

After learning of Polk's plan,
Arrington teamed with Polk
County Commissioner Bruce
Parker to develop a joint-use
facility.

Arrington said it has taken

dents with added protection.

Osceola will save about
$300,000 in initial construction
costs and in operating expens-
es once the facility is open,
Arrington said.

It will take between nine
months and a year before the
$1,000,000 joint-use station
opens, said Osceola Public
Safety Division Director Tad
Stone.

County Commission
Chairman Paul Owen said the
savings from the project could
be used to increase compen-
sation for firefighters.

Although this will be the
first time Osceola has part-
nered with another county for
joint fire services, it is not
uncommon, said Stone.

"Anytime two agencies
have overlapping jurisdictions

Polk residents, Arrington said.

"A lot of people don't real-
ize the population that exists
there," she said.

The station will house three
Osceola firefighters, three
Polk firefighters and two Polk
Emergency Medical Services
workers.

Polk County will own the
station because it is paying for
a majority of the construction
costs and because it will tech-
nically be located in Polk
County, Stone said.

If Polk terminates the con-
tract, it will have to buy out
Osceola's section of the facili-
ty. But if the contract is termi-
nated by Osceola, then Polk
will owe nothing to Osceola.

The crews will respond
jointly and will work together
most of the time, Stone said.

Endorsements

Osceola School Board, District 5

Judy Robertson

The District 5 School Board race
pits a seasoned board member vs. a
political newcomer.

The incumbent, Judy Robertson,
who owns a residential construction
business, has a solid record of ser-
vice during her eight years on the
school board.

Whether it's pushing for the
extension of the sales tax or advo-
" cating the renovation of new
schools, Robertson has been pro-
gressive and effective in scraping for
dollars to help the district meet the
tough challenges prompted by ram-
pant growth.

She has shown leadership in
forming a cooperative effort with
other board members, county com-
missioners and other community
leaders to make education issues,
such as the lack of funding, a top pri-
ority.

She also has several good ideas,
such as making technical education
a priority for legislative actions,
whether the county’s existing tech-
nical education center is expanded
or a satellite branch is opened.

A strong array of vocational
classes, besides broadening educa-
tional opportunities for Osceola resi-
dents, can also help bolster efforts
to diversify the economy if pro-
grams are tailored to meet the

demands of the business sectors.

Robertson’s unwavering support
of having a school resource officer
in every school has helped spare
the program the budget ax. Having
police officers on campus, besides
providing a deterrent to crime, is
immeasurable in providing role
models for students.

Her opponent, John McKay, has
some good credentials, as a former
teacher, coach and athletic director.

He, too, has executive experience
in the building industry, owning a
commercial construction company,
and wants to apply his knowledge
to board decisions.

McKay believes finding more
cost effective means and methods
of construction should be a priority
for the school board.

McKay would benefit by serving
on school advisory boards and
other local government committees.
He appears genuinely concerned
about the school system and we
hope he continues to be involved in
government.

But his opponent has a better
grasp of the issues and a proven
track record on the board.

The Osceola News-Gazette
endorses Judy Robertson for Osce-
ola County School District 5.

Fierce Andrew was not ‘storm of the century’

It's almost shameful to admit that
I dozed through Hurricane Andrew.

Like thousands of other South
Florida families, mine was fortunate
enough not to be caught in the stor-
m's direct path. What we got in Plan-
tation mainly was a heap of wind
and rain — some minor flooding, a
few trees uprooted, a week or so
without electricity. That's all.

Forty miles south: doomsday des-
olation. Entire subdivisions
smashed to tinder, as if punched by
a cosmic fist.

Without question, Andrew was a
large nasty hurricane. What it wasn't
was the “storm of the century. ” Not
even close.

Compact and fast-moving, the
storm showed mercy by coming
ashore in southernmost Miami-
Dade, the least densely populated
stretch of the coast. There it mowed
a relatively narrow swath and didn't
linger, dumping less precipitation
than your basic tropical depression.

Still, Andrew was catastrophic,
terrifying and life-altering for many.

Those of us safely distant from the
ruination could only think of how
much worse it would have been had
the storm angled a few clicks north
and hammered a major city.

There was a time when natural
disasters were ranked according to
loss of human life, not insurance-
claim dollars. While the 15 South
Floridians who perished during
Andrew's rampage represent a sad
loss, the total is small compared
with other storms of that century.
The great hurricane of 1926, before
they were assigned names, killed 243
people in Florida and Alabama. Two
years later, another one flooded
Lake Okeechobee, killing 1,836. The
1935 hurricane took 408 lives here.
And only 16 months before Andrew
hit Florida, a cyclone in Bangladesh
wiped out 139,000 people - more
than the entire 1990 populations of
Miami Beach and Coral Gables com-
bined.

The singular historic aspect of
Andrew's visit was the estimated $25
billion in property damage, a bog-

gling and unprecedented cost at the
time. As it turned out, much of the
destruction proved to be the conse-
quence not of supernatural winds
(Andrew was listed then as a robust-
ly routine Category Four storm) but
of shoddy or illegal construction
practices, blundering and corrupt
code enforcement and idiotically lax
building rules.

What Andrew wrought in South
Miami-Dade was no hype; it was a
true-life nightmare of havoc and
despair. Yet, as hurricanes go,
Andrew wasn't diabolically unique;
it was simply the first big one to
cream South Florida since the place
became so insanely overpopulated.

Most of the people who lived
here in the summer of 1992 weren't

around for Donna in 1960 or Betsy in
1965. Even we who went through
those storms had forgotten much
over the quiet decades, forgotten
that freakish hell-roar of the wind.

Oddly, it put me to sleep on the
night Andrew struck. When I awoke
in the gray gauze that passed for
daybreak, my first concern was for
my grandfather, who was then 98.

| had led him against his wishes
from his home in Coral Ridge, an
evacuation zone, and brought him
farther inland to my house. The old
man knew a thing or two about mon-
ster hurricanes, having settled in
Fort Lauderdale in 1922, but he dis-
played more annoyance than anxi-
ety over Andrew's arrival.

He, too, slept through the racket
and in the morning declared that he
wished to go home. Unfortunately,
there was no power at his house, or
mine. For most of us that was mere-
ly an inconvenience, but for my
grandfather it was potentially dan-
gerous. Beset by medical problems
(and who isn't at 98), he needed an

Letters

air-conditioned room in order to
keep breathing without assistance.

Thus, the initial hours after
Andrew passed were spent search-
ing Broward for electricity. The
power returned only slowly and in
unpredictable grids, so we asked
friends and family to alert us in the
event that their a/c kicked on.

Finally, a nurse who had cared
for my grandfather phoned with the
good news, and we rushed him to
her house. He seemed a bit dazed,
but also grateful to escape that ener-
vating post-hurricane heat.

He was lucky. Our whole family
was. Forty miles south, the lucky
ones were those who found enough
garbage bags to cover the holes in
their roof — assuming they still had a
roof. Forty miles south, nobody had
slept through the storm.

That's the thing about hurricanes.
The one that finds you is always big
and bad enough.

Class Act Group

To the editor:

Class Act Group is fighting for
medical care and financial recovery
for World War II/Korea military
retirees who may be eligible for up
to $10,000 recovery of Medicare Part
B/ supplement insurance payments.

Class Act is the nickname attor-
ney, Medal of Honor recipient, POW,
Col. George "Bud" Day gave the law-
suit he filed for plaintiffs Robert
Reinlie and Sam Schism to restore
broken health care promises to
World War II/Korea military retirees.
The suit seeks a refund of Medicare
Part B premiums and a return to full,
no cost health care for military
retirees. Monetary claims (refunds)
are restricted to a maximum of
$10,000 per plaintiff. Day has filed a
motion to the court to designate this
lawsuit as a "class action." There are
currently over 20,000 military
retirees who have joined as part of
the class action initiative, battling
the U.S. government who reneged
on the medical care promise to a
generation of World War II/ Korea
retirees.

The lawsuit was filed in 1996 and
has passed through several court
hearings with Day winning the latest
reported decision in Washington,
D.C. Federal Court of Appeals. This
court held in February 2001 that the
U.S. government is liable for the
promise of lifetime health care made
to military retirees over age 65, who
entered active duty prior to Dec. 7,
1956, served 20 or more years active

' service, and enrolled/paid for

Medicare Part B.

A rehearing before the full 12
member (en banc) court was
requested by the U.S. government
and held March 6, 2002. This was the
same Washington, D.C., court that
previously ruled in the Class Act's
favor. Class Act expects to again win
a unanimous decision which is likely
to be announced soon. Given a gen-
eral average of 6 to 7 months for this
court to report an "en banc" deci-
sion, the ruling for Class Act could
come early September 2002. If you
meet the above criteria and want to
become part of the Class Action, you
can avoid the rush and sign up now.

Sit at front
of the bus

To the editor:

It's time for the Black Democrats
of Florida to sit with Daryl Jones in
the front of the bus. :

You know that had Jones been a
white man with his outstanding cre-
dentials, he would now be a shoo-in
for the Democratic nomination for
governor. And if he's not "dark"
enough for some of you, don't you
realize that he's paving the way for
darker" ones later?

It's time | for white Democrats to

try to understand why Jones cannot
give up his seat on the bus until the
primary trip is over. Telling him that
if he will be a good boy and step
aside, good things will come to him
later is not that much different than
telling Rosa Parks to take a seat in
the back and just be thankful that
she gets to ride.

Firefighters
shortchanged

To the editor:

Two firefighters lost their lives in
a training exercise and no one wants
to talk about it. It's too sad, too frus-
trating. The other firefighters are
grieving and angry. Their families
are worried that something so terri-
ble could happen again.

Now, investigations are going on.
Whatever they conclude, some good
must come out of this horror. The
deaths of these two heroes cannot
be in vain, but unless the county
commissioners change their way of
thinking, that could be the outcome.

Osceola County is growing by
leaps and bounds. Literally thou-
sands of new homes and businesses
are being built here each year, but
obtaining funding for growth of the
fire service is like pulling teeth.
There are not enough firefighters,
which means an insufficient number
gets sent to combat fires. Life saving
equipment that other fire depart-
ments rely on is nonexistent here.
There are not enough stations or
equipment.

The commissioners spend hun-
dreds of millions of dollars building
monuments to themselves, such as
the new courthouse complex, the
agricultural center and a new con-
vention center, but commissioners
like Chuck Dunnick and Mary Jane
Arrington continually fight provid-
ing the life saving dollars for our
firefighters. The two monuments
they should be concerned about are
at Osceola Memory Gardens.

Army starting a real food fight

The U.S. Army is develop-
ing a new Combat Sandwich.
Really. Army food techni-
cians say this sandwich can
remain edible, without refrig-
eration, for three years.
Granted, that's nowhere near
the staying power of those
$4.50 hot dogs they sell at
airports, some of which have
been rotating on their grills
since the Lindbergh flight.
But it's still impressive.

I recently had an opportu-
nity to field-test the new
Combat Sandwich, and will
give you my review once I
get my new artificial stom-
ach.

No, seriously, I'm fine, and
my review will follow this
informative HISTORY OF
MILITARY FOOD:

The legendary French
general Napoleon “Bone”
Aparte once observed that
“an army marches on its
stomach.” Of course,
Napoleon was talking about
French soldiers, who drank
large quantities of wine and
thus often could not march
on their actual feet (“For-
ward ... CRAWL!â„¢). In battle,
they routinely shot at their
own artillery to make it shut
up so they could sleep.

But the point is that food
is vital for soldiers. The
ancient Romans understood
this: No matter how far their
soldiers ventured from
Rome, they knew that, come
dinnertime, the Domino's
delivery chariot would come
thundering into camp, dri-
ven by a man who knew that
if he was more than 30 min-
utes late, he would be disem-
boweled.

By the American Civil
War, the military had devel-
oped a ration called “hard-
tack,” which was similar to
plywood, but not as tender.
The advantage of hardtack
was that it did not spoil, so if
soldiers were pinned down
on the battlefield, unable to
get supplies, they could sim-
ply reach into their knap-
sacks, pull out their hard-
tack, and throw it at the

enemy.
“Retreat!” the enemy

would shout. “They're throw-
ing hardtack!”

In World War II, the army
developed “K-rations,” which
were critical to the outcome
of the war, because the
allied soldiers knew that if
they won, they would no
longer have to eat K-rations.
After the war, tons of left-
over K-rations were given to
starving war refugees, who
gave them back. Today they
are used primarily in road
construction and fruitcake.

there was a fierce competi-
tion between the United
States and the Soviet Union
to gain superiority in the
field of military food. This
culminated in the Red
Army's development of the
legendary “Big Ivan” Tactical
Assault Sausage, which was
the size of a subway car and
theoretically could feed one
infantryman for 400 years. In
1987, a dozen of these babies
were dropped from bombers
to Soviet troops in
Afghanistan; shortly there-
after, communism collapsed.
So food has played a vital
role in military history,
which is why the army's new
Combat Sandwich is so excit-
ing. When | heard about it, I
asked the army to send me
one, and the army graciously
sent me two: one barbecued
chicken, and one pepperoni,
both wrapped in brown mili-
tary foil packets that you
need a bayonet to open.

I field-tested these sand-
wiches on a Florida beach,
where the harsh battlefield-
style conditions included
heat, sand, and a large pink
man walking around in a tiny
red thong. If anything is
going to ruin a person's
appetite for a sandwich, it is
suddenly finding yourself
face to face with the flagrant
crevasse that this man was
sporting. I think the authori-
ties should crack down
(Har!) on this kind of beach
attire. I think that Coast
Guard ships should patrol
along the beaches, and when
they spot a large bethonged
man (“CHEEKS HO!™) I think
that -- Greenpeace be
damned - harpoons should
be employed.

But even under these con-
ditions, the Combat Sand-
wich held up well. It's a
“pocket” style sandwich,
which means it looks as if it
has spent time in some-
body's pocket. But 1 thought
it was quite tasty, in a spicy
way. Of course, I think every-
thing is tasty, including cold
cuts so old that when you try
to take them out of the
refrigerator, they skitter
away on little mold legs and

hide behind the beer. I will
eat food with an expiration
date written in Roman
numerals.

So I gave a few bites of
Combat Sandwich to my
wife, who is very strict about
food freshness, always root-
ing through the refrigerator
and throwing out pieces of
pizza that, in my opinion,
still have years of service
left. She actually liked the
Combat Sandwich. So did my
mother-in-law, who is picky
about most things, although
she has graciously made an
exception in my case.

In conclusion, the Combat
Sandwich is a strong addi-
tion to our nation's combat-
food arsenal. It is a tribute to
the men and women who
devised it, and the coura-
geous barbecued chickens
and pepperonis who gave
their lives to make it possi-
ble. I know I speak on behalf
of a grateful nation when I
say: What's for dessert?

Football season oh so close; teams prep

Osceola Rws- Gazette

Sports

Kickoff Classics next week; teams dodge raindrops
while setting lofty goals for the upcoming season

.By Rick Pedone
News-Gazette Staff Writer

+ With the Kickoff Classics looming
just six days from now, even football
players tiring of the rain and heat are
enthusiastically awaiting the new
season.

In fact, the frequent afternoon
thunderstorms are often a blessing,
according to some of the players.

“It makes you concentrate, makes

you sure that you are paying atten-
tion to the fundamentals,” said Gate-
way senior running back Charlie
Merino. “It also makes you learn how
to hang onto the ball.”
* Merino’s teammate, senior guard
Mike Rivera, said the Panthers are
not merely slogging through the pre-
season drills.

“We're gonna be great,” he said.

“As a team, we're more like a family.
We look a lot better than last year.”

And, how does Rivera define a
“great” season for the Panthers?

“We're gonna make the playoffs
this year. We won't settle for any-
thing less,” he said. “I don’t think
they've done that here before, but
we're changing that.”

The preseason optimism is pre-
sent at Osceola, as well. Of course,
with four straight district champi-
onships and five regional finals
appearances, this is one team that
should be confident. Fourth-year
starters Kamry Dymmek, a line-
backer, and Chris Gorman, a full-
back/defensive linemen, have done
just about everything during their
careers except win a state champi-
onship.

“That’s about all we haven't done.

Fishin’ Fun

I'm experiencing a change of
- weather this week.

: As you're reading this, I'm up
1 in Iowa where the early morn-
4 ing temperatures were into the
1 40’s early in the week. If it
remains that cool, I'll have to
dig out my blue jeans, which
haven't seen sunlight for about
five months.

I don’t know how the rest of
you have fared, but I've had
some really weird days of fish-
ing lately. One day, I go out and
catch 15 to 20 bass in about
three hours, and the next day |
fish for three hours and don’t
get a bite. Granted, I'm trying
different areas of the lake, but I
wouldn't think that would make
such a difference.

Most of the bass that I have
caught in the last week have
come on soft plastic jerk baits
and plastic worms. Early in the
morning, | have had some good
luck using a buzz bait. Last
week, | was fishing around
Brown's Point and caught about
20 bass, all on the soft jerk bait.
A couple of days later all the
bass I caught came on a 7-inch
June Bug worm. On that day I
was fishing open water hydrilla
below Marker 24.

There are still quite a fw blue
gill fishermen down around
Reed Island. Most are fishing
away from the shore line and
are using live crickets.

I hope to have a couple of
hours to try for some small-
mouth bass while I'm up north.
Maybe by the time I get back
these bass will figure out how I
can catch them.

Mascoe leads UCF defense
into Happy Valley next week

Former OHS standout to start at
middle linebacker vs. Penn St.

This year we'd like to go that next
step,” said Gorman, who earned his
nickname “Tank” for the way he uses
his 250-pound frame to bulldoze
defenders into the end zone. He did
that 10 times last season.

“Our practices have been going
great. It's been pretty intense, we're
having a lot of fun out there,” said
Gorman.

Dymmek, like Gorman a varsity
starter since his freshman season,
said the years of experience make
him more anxious than ever to get
the season underway.

“When you come in as a fresh-
man, you're a little intimidated
because everyone seems a little big-
ger and a little stronger,” he said.
“Now, I'm really looking forward to it
more than ever.”

When Gorman and Dymmek were
freshmen in 1999, the Kowboys were
coming off a state championship sea-
son and ranked as high as No. 13 in
preseason national polls. This year,
Osceola again has a national ranking,
No. 17, and high expectations.

“That’s something | don’t like to
hear about that much, but it's some-
thing that we can handle,” said Gor-
man about the preseason hype.

Dymmek, who was injured part of
last season but still made 128 tackles
and six sacks, said he expects better
things for himself and the Kowboys,
who were 12-1.

“Everything’s clicking in practice
and we're tight,” he said. “I think
we've got a pretty good group. So far
it’s been a blast.”

At St. Cloud, which was forced to
practice indoors at times during the
first week of drills, things have
returned to normal. The team
escaped rain most of this week.

The Bulldogs may be looking for-
ward to game days, though. Senior
offensive lineman Chris Aun said the
team dragged through Wednesday's
workout.

“The coaches were pretty mad. |
don’t know what it was, but we just
couldn't get going,” said Aun, a cen-
ter. “I talked to the other linemen
about it, and we're going to pick it
back up. It’s up to the seniors to get
everybody fired up.”

Kowboys defensive end Clayton Taylor waits out a thunderstorm
that delayed Monday’s practice. Osceola is preparing for its Kickoff
Classic next Friday at Bradenton Manatee.

Quarterback Tyler Sherrick, a
senior who will play a huge role in
the Bulldogs’ game plan this year,
said Wednesday's lackluster practice
was an exception.

“We had a bad day, but other than
that it’s been pretty good. Last week
was bad with the rain and the light-
ning. We had to cancel practice one
day, but this week the rain hasn't
bothered us,” he said.

Coach John Wallauer said his
players may be weary after eight
practices over nine days, including a
workout on Saturday.

“We got so far behind because of
the rain that we had to practice on

Saturday, so I think that has a lot to
do with it,” he said. “The first week

there is that excitement about start-
ing practice, and next week will be
fine because we've got the game, but
this week is just kind of a dead time.”

Sherrick, who threw for 620 yards
and nine touchdowns last season, is
getting help from Kerry King, a for-
mer Bulldog all-state selection in the
mid-70s when he set the county
record with 3,620 yards. That record
stood until Poinciana’s David Tabor

passed for over 5,000 career yards. .

“Coach King has showed me some
things that have helped a lot,” said
Sherrick. “I feel pretty confident. You
pretty much have to.”

Sherrick expects the Bulldogs
offense to be effective, even though
last year’s leading rusher, Jerrod
Fullwood graduated.

“We've still got some pretty good
guys coming back. Jeremy Simpson
has been real good at receiver, and
so has Gary Grayek,” he said. “John
(Wallauer Jr.) is back, and all of the
seniors want to have a good season.
We look at the schedule, and we

don’t see anybody on there that
scares us.”

Poinciana Coach Joe Anagnostis seme «ew --

said his preparations are on track for
the Kickoff Classic.

“It’s wet, but everything's going
well. We're getting all our work in,”
he said.

The Kickoff Classics next Friday
all begin at 7:30 p.m. Gateway, the
only host, welcomes Cypress Creek.
Osceola goes to Bradenton Manatee,
St. Cloud travels to Lake Highland
Prep and Poinciana visits Leesburg.

By Ken Jackson
News-Gazette Staff Writer

Kissimmee’s Chad Mascoe is
making a similiar impact on the
Golden Knights football practice
fields these days to the one he
made back in January.

His decision to attend UCF
rather than Florida State, the
school he originally signed with
out of Osceola High in 1999, was
considered a coup’de gras for the
Orlando program.

Mascoe, who will wear No. 9 for
the Black and Gold, will be the
starting middle linebacker when
the Golden Knights open the sea-

son in typical daunting fashion at

Penn State next Saturday (ESPN,
12:15 p.m.). Mascoe inherited the
big shoes of three-year starter and
outgoing senior Tito Rodriguez this
spring and beat redshirt sopho-
more Savarris Brown for the posi-
tion in spring drills.

Mascoe was one of a handful of
junior-college transfers the Golden
Knights signed in preparation for
their first year in the Mid-American
Conference. Win — and do it now —
is the mantra, as UCF eyes a shot at
the MAC title one of the confer-
ence’s bowl berths.

Mascoe, a do-it-all member and
one of the main cogs of the OHS
Kowboys' magical 1998 Class 5A
state championship run, did not
qualify academically for FSU and
instead played two years at South-
west Mississippi Community Col-
lege, where he was ranked 19th by
JCFootball.com and 3lst by
Rivals.com among the nation’s top
junior-college players.

When it came time to return to
Tallahassee, Mascoe, a linebacker
by trade, turned them down when
Bobby Bowden's staff wanted him
to position him at defensive end.

Attending UCF will bring him
closer to home, making it a good
fit, he said.

“I had to think about what’s best
for me,” Mascoe said. “I'll be very
happy at UCF. It’s the best place for
me to continue my education. I'll
be closer to my mother and broth-
ers, and | should have a chance to
get more playing time.”

Defensive linemen Roy Williams
and DeMarcus Johnson also came
with Mascoe from SMCC. Johnson
chose UCF over Florida and Alaba-
ma. Both Johnson and Mascoe,
who has added 30 pounds to his 6-3
frame since his Osceola playing
days and now carries a Mack truck-
like 255 pounds, both assumed
starting spots from nearly the day
they walked on campus.

“We set out to sign some critical
people on the interior and we had
a windfall with the three players
we signed on defense,” UCF Head
Coach Mike Kruczek said. “Chad
brings a lot of athleticism and
experience in here and I think it’s
critical for us going into the season
to have these kinds of guys.”

Despite bulking up, Mascoe
maintains his 4.6 speed in the 40,
which the Golden Knights will call
on this season to lock down the
middle against intricate offenses
like Marshall and Syracuse — a far
cry from his Osceola days, when he
played wherever called on — quar-
terback, safety, running back, iine-

Chad Mascoe
backer, receiver, tight end.

Mascoe said during recent fall
workouts that the defensive unit,
which held the offense without a
touchdown in a recent controlled
scrimmage, is coming together well
despite having many new faces.

“We are all just pushing through
it out here,” he said. “It is tough,
but there is no better way to get it
done than through hard work.”

The looming opener with Penn
State is a tangible enough goal to
make the hard work worthwhile,
Mascoe said.

“This is the first time for some of
us to go through a camp here
(UCF),” he said. “We're starting to
gel, but in our minds we have a
long way to go and we want to get
better.”

It was that kind of attitude
that led UCF recruiting coordi-
nator Scott Fountain to covet
Mascoe’s services.

“Him coming here was a
pleasant surprise. He's been
touted as a blue-chip recruit,
so it’s a big step for our pro-
gram to snare him away from
a program like Florida State,”
Fountain said.

“This spring our plan was
to have him step in and be
our No. 1 guy at middle line-
backer,” Fountain said. “It was
his job to lose. It was a huge
need for us losing Tito. But
having a junior-college guy in
there makes it a better transi-
tion because we won't have to
start over with a young guy.
He's a respectful kid who is
willing to work hard and do
what it takes.”

Sweet — baby James
James Taylor has a new album and family to lift his spirits

By Peter CoviNO
NEWS-GAZETTE ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR

He's seen fire and he’s seen
rain, but through it all James Tay-
lor has managed to keep on
singing for more than 30 years.

It’s been five years since his
last album — Taylor has not
been the most productive of pop
stars since the 1990s — but the
sounds of October Road just
might make you wish that Sweet
Baby James would visit the
recording studio a little more
often.

It's been a long time since
Taylor made a friend of Carole
King with his hit rendition of the
King song You've Got a Friend,
and those days when he and
Carly Simon were one of rock-
doms most famous couples are
nothing more than a footnote on
a webpage.

This is a different James Taylor
singing about a love and life that
includes a new wife, Caroline,
and twin baby sons. Taylor,

always a personal songwriter and

performer, may not be continual
ly upbeat but if nothing else, love
has found the 54-year-old Caroli-
na boy, with songs like Caroline |
See You and On the 4th of July.

October Road reunites Taylor
with producer Russ Titelman,
who worked with the musician
in 1975 and 1976 for the albums
Gorilla and In the Pocket, and it
is a happy reunion.

Last time out, Taylor won a
Grammy Award for best pop
album for Hourglass (1997), but

October Road represents an
even stronger collection of songs.

All of the songs are written by
aylor with the exception of Sep-
ember Grass, and the album's

Somes ¢ Taylor s latest album October Road, his first release
since his Grammy Award winning Hourglass (1997) finds the

singer/songwriter in great form with new songs about love, life

and family.

By Taylor's standards this is
practically an experimental
album, with musical influences
that include everything from rag-
time to Brazilian pop, but the

But now Taransky must
deal with the consequences.
He has created a pop icon
that everyone wants to inter-
view — but she doesn’t exist.

Simone, the movie, is the
creation of director/writer
Andrew Niccol, who
explored similar territory in
his screenplay for The Tru-
man Show.

But while Niccol takes
dead aim on the falsities of
Hollywood, the humor here is
at a much broader level than
it was in The Truman Show.
And who would have thought
that a heavyweight actor like
Pacino would be at its very
core.

Simone is loaded with lots
of little laughs, assorted
chuckles and a few bouts of

some of the most creative

laughter you'll experience all

year as Taransky tries to keep

his “actress” in seclusion all

the time. Seeing the lipstick-

smeared Pacino kissing hun-

dreds of Simone photos for

her adoring fans alone might

be worth the price of an’
admission ticket.

Few actors could deal with
the complexities of Taransky
as he goes from tragic figure
to success, to near psychosis
as Simone’s popularity
eclipses that of a Madonna
and Britney Spears combined.
But for Pacino, all of this
looks like just another day at
the office.

Simone is not perfect film-
making. The ending isn’t
quite up to the rest of the

Continued from page B-1

movie, but so much of this
sizzles it doesn’t matter too
much that the finale fizzles
out a little.

Simone also stars Cather-
ine Keener as ex-wife Elaine;
Jay Mohr as Hal, Simone’s
film co-star who has never
really shared a scene with the
actress; and Pruitt Taylor
Vince and Jason Schwartz-
man as a couple of tabloid
journalists determined to find
out the truth about Simone.

tephen King’s Everything's Eventual
a creepy collection best read by day

horror In “Everything's Even-
tual,” literary master Stephen
King’s first collection of sto-
ries since 1993's Nightmares
and Dreamscapes. King spins
14 new tales, from those pay-
ing homage to past literary
greats, to others that are
downright disturbing.

Let him introduce you to a
maniacal restaurant maitre d’
with a lust for blood or hitch
a ride with a copse fresh out
of the morgue with ill inten-
tions.

In the eerie title story,
“Everything’s Eventual,” a
young man has the power to
end lives by drawing strange
shapes and figures and is
compensated to use that tal-
ent after he’s hired by a secret
government agency. But
when he learns he is killing
innocent people for his supe-
riors, he turns the tables.

Events include fossil digs
where visitors can uncover
dinosaur secrets using OSC's
DinoDigs: Mysteries
Unearthed exhibit.

A gift last year from the
Walt Disney Co., this perma-
nentexhibit features fossil
casts of dinosaurs in their dis-
parate land and aquatic set-
tings.

Within DinoDigs, guests
become part of a paleonto-
logical excavation site, where
dinosaurs and other prehis-

a morgue, is helpless in
“Autopsy Room Four.” Bitten
by a poisonous snake that
leaves him paralyzed and
with weak vital signs, his
active mind can only watch
as doctors prepare to slice
him open.

With “The Road Virus
Heads North,” character
Richard Kinnell purchases a
macabre picture of a dis-
turbed young man in a car at
a yard sale that begins to
change for the worse.

And in “Riding the Bullet”
a hitchhiker is picked up by a
dead man with fresh autopsy
wounds and a pungent smell,
who orders him to choose
between his life and the life
of his dying mother.

Granted, there are a few
stories that miss the mark of
King's standard of creepiness.
For example, “The Man in the
Black Suit” is nothing more

toric land and sea animals are
displayed.

Field stations around the
dig site contain excavation
activities. These fossil replicas
were previously featured at
the Dinosaur Jubilee in
DinoLand, U.S.A. at Disney's
Animal Kingdom.

Special guests and activi-
ties highlight Dino Dig Day.
Follow in the footsteps of
dinosaurs, dissect their meals,
and meet real fossil hunters.
