Brian Scott Longwood
Article by Brian Scott;
Many know Jeff Sonksen for his tribute murals lining a fence on Ronald Regan Blvd in Longwood; memorials paintings of fallen celebrities, police, and musicians. His latest work though is making a much more political statement.
Sonksen’s newest series line the road outside of the Seminole County Kennel Club. The paintings aren’t of people but of greyhound dogs that actually run races at the Longwood track, and bare messages defending that track and its sport.
“There are so many times I drove by the track and went, ‘ooo the dreaded dog track!'” said Sonksen. “I never would have believed that 6 months later I’d be defending greyhound racing.”
Sonksen said his change of heart came after an odd series of events that led him to an invite into the Seminole track. Also an avid social media user, he went in armed with a camera expecting to continue to expose the abuse he’d seen shown by so many animal rights groups, but he said he couldn’t.
Brian Scott Disney
Article by Brian Scott;
Many know it as the town Walt Disney built or was that “Wald Disney?”
Bloggers at Disney Diary were among several visitors over the weekend who noticed Celebration’s famous downtown fountain had the word “Walt” misspelled as “Wald” in it.
Disney Diary posted a photo of the error on their Twitter page with the message: “Really? This is the new fountain in Celebration. You know, the town built by the Wald Disney Co. #whycopyeditorsmatter #disney #wdw”
Residents said the fountain had been closed for some time to undergo renovations and just reopened in recent days.
The concrete on the ground of it features a compass design with pavers pointing to destinations in the area; including the nearby Walt Disney World.
On Monday, the Celebration Community Development District acknowledged the error on their website. In a statement leaders wrote:
“As many of you know, the Celebration CDD hired a contractor to refurbish the fountain in downtown Celebration. The fountain contains guide markers to various locations and attractions, one of which is Walt Disney World. Unfortunately, ‘Walt’ was misspelled and will have to be replaced. The contractor has taken full responsibility for making the correction. Some of the other guide markers also need to be realigned to point in the correct direction, and that will also be done by the contractor.
