businesses to Baldwin

JENNY ANDREASSON

The Maitland City Council
will consider letting the cit-
izens decide who'll be may-
or if Doug Kinson resigns to
run for a county seat.
At Monday's meeting,
Kinson and Council mem-
bers Howard Schieferdecker
and Linda Frosch said they'd
support a charter change
- which would have to be
approved by voters that
would let a vacant mayor
seat be filled by election.
The current charter says a
departing mayor's term is
served out by the city's vice
mayor.
In Kinson's case, there
would be a year and a quar-
ter left on his term. He must
resign by June 4 effective
in January to qualify for
the Orange County Com-
mission seat.
"We've got time to do it
(the charter change)," Kin-
son said, "and I think it's
something the residents
need to weigh in on...."
Frosch agreed. "It should
be put to voters because this
could happen again," she
said.

mayor, and Councilman

The Aloma Cinema Grill is balancing the art of dinner and a movie while expanding to be 50 percent bigger despite the slow economy. Customer demand drove the change, general manager Sherie McTigue said.
30-year-old movie house in Winter Park starts expansion to include third theater; keeps doors open


ROBYN SIDERSKY
GUEST REPORTER
The Aloma Cinema and
Grill offers something most
movie theaters in Central
Florida area don't dinner
with your movie.
The theater has been in
business for more than 30
years and in the next month
will expand to include a
third theater.
"We're not greedy. We
keep our prices low because
we're a small theater and we
know what the economy is
going through," said general
manager Sherie McTigue.
The theater shows first-


run films, rotating them
every two weeks. Adding
a third theater will allow
them to keep movies lon-
ger and host more special
events, McTigue said.
While other chain the-
aters such as Regal Cinemas
and AMC have raised their
prices, Aloma has kept theirs
consistent. They haven't
raised the prices on their
menu items either.
McTigue described their
menu as "upscale sports
bar" and bragged that they
have one of the best burgers
around.
It's not the food and films


that set the theater apart
though, it's their attitude
toward their patrons.
"We listen to our custom-
ers," McTigue said. "It's a
down-home-type place."
That's what keeps people
coming back to the theater
and keeps them in busi-
ness. They cater to the com-
mon man and cater to those
needs.
When you walk into the
theater, you'll see one-of-
a-kind paintings of old ac-
tors adorning the walls. The
paintings, done by one of
the managers, fit in perfect-
ly with the cozy atmosphere


of the theater.
Over the last 30 years, the
theater has changed to cater
to its audiences.
Alyce Stults, a consul-
tant and former owner of
the theater, said they're ex-
panding to include a third
screen.
She said they'll be able to
show more movies and keep
movies for a longer period,
as well as hold more events.
"This is going to give us
more flexibility with the
newly released films," she
said.
The theater was original-
ly opened in 1978 and the


concept at the time was din-
ing and showing films, while
serving wine and beer.
Over the years, they've
expanded their menu to in-
clude more entrees as op-
posed to just snack foods.
Another change they en-
dured was the change of
the drinking age. When the
drinking age was changed
from 18 to 19 then 21, they
expanded their food ser-
vice.
Construction on the third
theater began May 1 and the
theater has no plans to close
its doors during construc-
tion.


BALDWIN I Community awaits completion of a new gym and aquatics facility

president of Baldwin Park's
Merchants Association, cur-
rent member and CPA firm
owner in the town, said she
thinks the new businesses
are a great addition because
they add variety to what the
downtown already offers.
"I think Baldwin Park has
an advantage," said Hess. "It
has active neighbors and ac-
tive businesses; it has every-
thing you could want."
Sean McCabe, a newcom-
er to the town with his busi-
ness Showcase Acting Stu-
dio, agreed with Hess.
"You get a good taste
of everything," he said. "It
helps because it brings more
street traffic."


And with more busi-
nesses, instead of the Bald-
win Park downtown being
just a destination stop to
one place where you need
something specific, it'll be
a place more like Park Av-
enue, where people come
to walk around, Bullfish
owner Brian Wettstein said.
This kind of traffic is gold
for businesses, especially for
new ones such the Studio
that many people may not
know existed before wan-
dering by.
While the "if you build it,
they will come" mentality
doesn't always work in favor
of businesses, master plan-
type towns such as Baldwin
Park have a good future, said
Mike Sorich, owner ofTropi-


cal Realty Advisors, a real es-
tate appraisal and consult-
ing firm in Orlando. Because
of the increasing cost of gas,
people will want to move to
places such as Baldwin Park,
where they can live, work
and play in the same area.
This seems to bode well for
the business owners able to
sustain themselves through
the tough economic reces-
sion.
Wettstein said he's seen
business at his specialty
"lifestyle concept store,"
which sells anything from
stationary to wine, grow
this year. He hopes the new
gym will bring even more
people into his store.
"It'll be regular traffic
coming into the down-


town every single day of the
week," he said.
Hess sees the gym as a
traffic attractor as well.
When her children were
young and in swimming les-
sons she didn't want to go
home and then drive back
to pick them up in an hour.
"So what do you do?
You go shopping," she said.
"That's going to create a lot
of activity."
The gym will benefit Mc-
Cabe's acting studio because
most of his students are chil-
dren, and the gym will bring
families into the downtown
area.
Sorich said that while the
gym industry is exploding
right now, the center might
not sustain business in the


future.
Wettstein also mentioned
the expanded offerings of
other businesses helping to
bring in traffic, such as Lago
serving brunch. The eas-
ily accessible parking also
helps to welcome people to
the downtown, something
you can't often find in plac-
es such as Winter Park and
downtown Orlando, Wet-
tstein said.
Hess, on the other hand,
gets a confidence boost in
her town's business by ex-
periencing the exact oppo-
site. She revels in the fact
that she can't always snag a
prime parking spot in town.
"I'm amazed sometimes
it's hard to find a parking
space."

land Center's vacancy rates could impact the city" is being retracted, as it did not illustrate

lease sign in front of the building is an advertisement for a nearby building, not the 429 S.

Running down a dream

Shelby Hayes avenged a loss and set a state record on the same day, winning three championships


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
At 7:01 p.m. Saturday, with
the late evening sun cast-
ing an amber spotlight on
her face, Shelby Hayes stood
atop the state champion-
ship podium in tears.
She'd just won her sec-
ond gold medal at Show-
alter Field on her way to a
third, setting a state record
for distance running victo-
ries in the process.
Before Saturday, no run-
ner in class 4A state history
had won the 4 x 800 meters,
the 1600 meters and then
the 3200 meters in the same
championship.
But as she wiped her eyes
as she walked away from the
podium after winning the
1600 meters, with still one
long race left after sunset,
she said she wished she had
ran even faster.
She had won by nearly 8
seconds. But she had hoped
to be 8 seconds swifter -
enough to catch and pass
state record holder Jenny
Barringer six years earlier.
She had wanted the record.
But that's something
Hayes said she knew she
had given up earlier Satur-
day morning as her legs had
churned ever more quickly
toward the finish line in the
4 x 800 meter relay. Anchor-
ing that race, she grabbed
the baton from teammate
Kira Soderstrom and sped
off around the first turn al-
ready ripping open the gap
that would widen to more
than 10 seconds before she
crossed the line.
Her teammates were ec-
static with the victory the
first for all of them. With a
trio of juniors around her,
Hayes was the only member
of Winter Park's relay team
who would be graduating
- bound for the University
of Florida's track and field
team in the fall.
"That was great to be able
to share a gold medal with
the three other girls," Hayes
said.
Hayes was still on her feet

as she left the track after the
4 x 800, but had spent more
energy than she'd hoped.
"I think the race definite-
ly took a lot out of my legs,"
she said. "It was a bit harder
than I expected."
Later that day she decid-
ed that going for a victory in
the 1600 meters would have
to be enough. She didn't
want to risk chasing the re-
cord. It could have cost her
too dearly.
"I wanted to save some-
thing for the 3200," she said.
"I wanted to make sure I had
enough left."
In the 3200 meters, she
wanted to avenge a loss
that had haunted her since
last season. In 2009, on this
same track at Winter Park's
Showalter Field, she was just
entering the final curve on
the final lap as Mariana Lu-
cena crossed the finish line
in 10:59.66. Hayes wouldn't
finish for another 27 sec-
onds, in third place.
This time, she wanted
the win outright, setting out
quickly ahead of the other

15 runners in the final. Al-
ways in the lead after the first
lap, she would maintain her
relentless pace as the rest of
the pack disintegrated and
fell farther behind.
And by the time she
rounded the final curve,
her stolid look of determi-
nation had finally broken
into a smile. She crossed the
finish line in 10:54.67 with
her hands in the air, triply a
champion before a packed
stadium of thousands.
"It hasn't really sunk in
yet," she said after her final
race. "I'm sure it'll hit me
later on."
There were no tears as
she stood on the victory
podium the last time. Out-
shined by the glimmer of
three gold medals, any re-
grets finally faded away. Her
eyes glistened just a little
under the stadium lights as
she waved to the crowd one
last time. Then she smiled to
a friend in the stands, and
did the Gator chomp with
her hands.

Book check-outs up

Winter Park and Maitland libraries outgrowing their facilities


KAREN McENANY-PHILLIPS
OBSERVER STAFF
The clicks of computer keys
were barely audible as Dor-
nell Mister surfed the Inter-
net on the peaceful third
floor of the Winter Park
Public Library.
Warmed by sunlit win-
dows, the behavioral thera-
pist especially enjoys the Li-
brary's sports and political
magazines.
"The environment is so
relaxing and gives me great
accessibility to resources,"
said Mister, one of more
than 319,000 visitors to the
Library in 2009.
The recession seems to
be helping local libraries
thrive, as folks shy away
from bookstores, preferring
to borrow their favorite
reading materials.
Visitors and circulation
are up at both the Maitland
and Winter Park libraries,
while fundinghas decreased.
Both say they're outgrowing
their facilities.
Library Director Rob-
ert Melanson said demand
for library services grew in
2009, with a 659,000 circu-
lation despite the recession.
It offered 1,729 programs
reaching more than 41,000
participants.
"We analyze and deliv-
er what residents want,"
Melanson said. "As technol-
ogy tends to isolate people,
library programs foster in-
teraction for people with
similar interests."
Melanson must balance
unprecedented use of li-
brary services with limited
financial resources as his li-
brary operates as a public/
private partnership.
"Our biggest challenge is
that we receive only 65 per-
cent of our funding through
the city. We must raise the
balance of funds ourselves.
If the community wants to
maintain services at the cur-
rent level, we need more fi-
nancial support," he said.
The other main funding
source comes from Friends
of the Winter Park Public Li-
brary volunteers, who oper-
ate the bookstore inside the
library.
Residents can support
the annual fund drive, con-
sider a contribution to the
library's endowment fund
and communicate to city
leaders the importance of
the library when making
funding choices.

Maitland Public Library
Founded in 1886, the
12,000-square-foot Mait-
land Public library needs
more space. A 20-year study
indicates the library's servic-
es and collection should be
housed in a 36,000-square-
foot facility. Expanding
the library has been under
discussion for years but is
on hold at least until the
downtown Maitland proj-
ect, called Maitland Town
Center, is finalized.
Maitland Library Director
Karen Potter said the library
receives most of its funding
through the city of Mait-
land but has experienced
funding decreases over the
past two years. Now Potter
focuses on fundraising and
community collaboration.
"We're sending out more
grant requests than ever be-
fore. We've joined with the
Philanthropy Center at Rol-
lins College, and we're en-
gaged in a cooperative fund-
raising effort with several
other Maitland non-prof-


the Distance Library Initia-
tive, Youth Poetry Contest,
an interlibrary loan courier
service, the library's leased
books program and lap-
tops.
"We definitely can use
more volunteers and dona-
tions," Friends' President
Gail Miller said, "and people
to buy more books!"
Patronage and circula-
tion were both up 9 percent
last year.
Potter uses volunteers
for nearly all the library pro-
grams and for shelf organi-
zation and maintenance.
She said the economy
shows the value of sharing
resources as evidenced by
people who no longer buy
books and who use the free
children's programs.
Potter sees a long future
for her library.
"I'm encouraged that
people are reading and lis-
tening to books in so many
formats," Potter said. "Re-
member, libraries are peo-
ple places, not just book
places."

MAYOR I Measure costs $20K


< continued from the front page

Phil Bonus did not support
a charter change.
"I may not love this pro-
cess but that might be less
evil than opening Pandora's
box to a charter review," Bo-
nus said. "And then what if
the amendment fails?"
Reponen said the char-
ter should be followed as is.
"[The charter] doesn't say 'If
you don't like that situation
you're going to change the
rule,"' she said. "That's what
the rule says."
The vice mayor appoint-
ment and discussion of
whether to pursue a char-
ter change was tabled until
the June 28 meeting, after
Kinson's letter of resigna-
tion is submitted or not.
He could choose to give up
his commission run and re-
main mayor.
Kinson said that if he was
not limited to two terms on
City Council, he wouldn't
have ventured for a county
seat in the first place.
"Had there not been that
limitation of term limits, my
thinking would have been
much different," he said. "...
No city the size of Maitland,
where we sit up here and


don't get paid a regular sal-
ary there should not be
term limits."
Term limits are also out-
lined in the charter and a
change would require a vot-
er referendum.
A referendum could cost
the city $20,000 or more if
they do it on their own. If
they piggyback on another
election, such as the one
in November, it would cost
less.
City Clerk Maria Waldrop
said it's not likely that a
charter change referendum
could make the November
ballot because of Supervi-
sor of Elections deadlines
and the logistics of having
two different ballots in the
county.
"To have two different
ballots out there would be
very confusing.... I heard it's
probably not going to hap-
pen in November," she said.
Bonus said it's not that
timely of an issue just yet.
Kinson will be mayor until
at least January.
"Unless you're planning
to resign effective immedi-
ately, we're not really fac-
ing a crisis immediately," he
said.

MAY 15 CITY COMMIS-
SION WORK SESSION
The City Commission will
hold a work session on
Saturday, May 15, at 11:30
a.m., in the City Hall located
at 401 S. Park Ave. The
work session is open to the
public, however, no public
comment will be taken.


As with any week in the
city of Maitland, many
activities and events take
place that impact our
community. This past week
was particularly eventful in
that our City issued several
proclamations that involve
and impact our residents in
many ways. Here is a brief
snapshot of each:

National Day of Prayer
The National Day of Prayer
celebration took place
on Thursday, May 6 at
Lake Lily Park, and was
attended by approximately
100 to 200 people,
including many families
with children, members
of our community and
surrounding communities.
Organized by a strong
host committee made
up of leaders throughout


our community, this was
a most successful event.
All denominations were
invited to this wonderful
celebration. Many thanks
to Mayor Bruce Mount of
Eatonville who joined us
for the event this year.
Maitland proclaimed
this day as the "National
Day of Prayer". The first
National Day of Prayer
was proclaimed by the
First Continental Congress
in 1775. President
Lincoln reaffirmed it in
1863, President Truman
established the Annual
National Day of Prayer by
law in 1952, and President
Reagan established the first
Thursday in May as the day
of annual recognition.

Emergency Medical
Services Week


Maitland's Emergency
Medical Services (EMS)
Team responds to 2,600
medical or trauma
related calls annually
and transports over
1,000 patients to hospital
emergency rooms. In
order to prepare for any
emergency, the members
of the Maitland Fire
Rescue EMS Team engage
in thousands of hours of
specialized training to
enhance their lifesaving
skills.
Each and every hour
of every day, Maitland's
citizens and business
owners benefit from the
work our firefighters,
emergency medical
technicians, paramedics,
and our EMS Director Todd
Husty perform for our
community.
In recognition of their
great service, Maitland
has proclaimed the week
of May 16-22 "Emergency
Medical Services Week"
and invites all residents
to stop by Fire Station
#45 on Independence
Lane or Fire Station #47
on Fennell Street, to meet
your emergency medical
providers and to tour the
facilities. While you are at
it, have your blood pressure


and glucose checked for
free!

Police Week
There are about 900,000
law enforcement officers
serving across the U.S.
Included in this number
are 43 from the City of
Maitland. Each and every
day our officers serve, they
put their lives on the line
for all of us. Since the first
recorded death of an officer
in 1792, more than 18,000
law enforcement officers
have been killed in the line
of duty.
The service and sacrifice
of all officers killed in
the line of duty will be
honored, and the names
of the officers newly
engraved on the Memorial
will be formally dedicated
during the National Law
Enforcement Officers
Memorial Fund's 22nd
Annual Candlelight Vigil
on the evening of Thursday,
May 13 in Washington, D.C.
The City of Maitland
will do our part to honor
our fallen officers by
proclaiming the week of
May 9-15 as "Police Week"
in the City of Maitland
while we publicly salute the
services of law enforcement
officers in our community


and across the nation.

National Public Works Week
The services that Maitland
Public Works departments
provide are an integral
part of our citizen's
everyday lives. Maitland's
Public Works Department
oversees programs such as
water, sewers, streets and
highways, public buildings,
solid waste collection,
and parks and lake
maintenance.
It's important that our
community understands
that the quality and
effectiveness of these
programs, as well as their
planning, design and
construction, is dependent
on the skill and effort of
our public works personnel,
who are headed up by
Maitland's Public Works
Director Rick Lemke.
With all the great behind
the scenes work Rick and
his team perform, it was
my pleasure to proclaim
the week of May 16-22 as
"National Public Works
Week" in the City of
Maitland.
For more information
on all the services provided
our families, please visit

Keep Your Retirement


Savings On Track
By Vince Grogan of Merrill Lynch


The financial meltdown has dealt some of its sharpest punches to
many individuals' retirement plans. Despite what we believe to be
a temporary derailment, four strategies can help get your
retirement savings goals back on track.

Take stock of your situation. The first step to developing an
effective recovery plan is to gather information on all your
assets. Build a holistic view of how your funds have withstood
the market thus far and determine whether your total asset base is
allocated effectively for your particular plan.

Consolidate accounts. The process of gathering and
reviewing all your assets may reveal just how many "savings
buckets" you have to manage. Allocating assets and managing
risk can be logistically more difficult when you're managing
multiple pools of scattered assets. You may be able to make fewer
accounts work harder for you, and you could find it easier to
respond to shifting markets.

For example, if you have multiple retirement accounts from
previous employers, consider rolling them over into your current
plan or a rollover IRA. Be sure to work with your tax advisor to
help assess whether a rollover makes sense for you.
Emphasize income. Consider what portion of your assets should
be dedicated to providing an income stream. Bonds, Treasuries
and CDs can all create income, especially if you stagger


maturity dates. Annuities and dividend-paying stocks are choices
to consider as well. And don't forget, a paycheck is another form
of regular income. Remaining in the workforce-even if part
time-can reduce the pressure on your investments to produce
income and give you more time to save.
Re-evaluate your risk exposure. With retirements projected to last
for 20 years or more, every retirement-focused portfolio needs
a long-term growth component, and that usually comes from
stocks. While it's important
to avoid taking imprudent
risks in an effort to play
catch-up, hiding in a heavy
cash position for the long
term can have you coming
up short when it's time to
depend on your savings.
Work with your advisor to
adjust your asset allocations
regularly.

vegan cuisine. Nothing on
the menu contains animal
products, and true to the
restaurant's name, nothing
is heated above 118 degrees,
which supporters of the diet
say is the temperature at
which the enzymes in food
are broken down, reducing
its nutritional value.
Owner and raw vegan
Joe Diaz's goal is to expose
locals to a new, healthy way


to eat.
Diaz's dive into raw food
was really by chance. A few
years ago Diaz, who was a
commercial banker at the
time, stumbled upon a Web
site for some raw food res-
taurants in New York and
fell in love with the food
he saw on his computer
screen.
"It was picture food it
was art on a plate and it was
raw food," Diaz said.
He'd been thinking of
opening his own business
and saw this as an opportu-
nity. He contacted the own-
er to inquire about a fran-
chise, but when that was not
available, he got in touch
with the noted chef behind

to the world," Diaz said.
And he's starting his mis-
sion here. The menu in-
cludes familiar ingredients,
but puts a twist on compo-
nents that are necessary, but
don't fit into the raw vegan
mold. For example, the "la-
sagna" has cheese made
from macadamia nuts. This
is one item on the menu
that Diaz said every first-
time visitor should try.
JJ Johnston, a Poinciana
resident who made the hour
trek to Winter Park just to
try the restaurant, said that
was her favorite dish.
"Some of it was very good,
especially the lasagna, that's
wonderful. The flavor on
that was just outstanding,"
she said.
Johnston said though
her standards are quite high
for this type of food her
daughter is a raw vegan chef
in California a lot of the
offerings at Cafe 1180 were
comparable to what her
daughter makes.
Frequent diner Joy Gold-
ing, also a raw vegan chef,
agreed.
"I've never met anyone
who can make better raw
food than me, and he is bet-
ter," Golding said.
Another reason Diaz said
Cafe 118" is progressive is
that they use mostly organ-
ic and local food. This also
helps to support local farm-
ers and keeps the ingredi-


good."
And without all of the
chemicals and preservatives
found in factory food, raw
vegan fare is much healthi-
er, Diaz said.
Golding can attest to
the health benefits of eat-
ing raw. In 2005, she was
diagnosed with malignant
melanoma and Hodgkin's
lymphoma. Already a veg-
etarian, Golding decided
she would research to find
the best "anticancer diet."
And that was raw vegan-
ism. A month after having
the tumor removed and be-
coming a raw vegan, she got
a PET scan and the cancer
was gone. She's still cancer
free and attributes part of
that to her diet.
"I've seen it first-hand,"
she said. "It saved my life."
Diaz believes in the pow-
er of eating healthy, fresh,
organic food. While he has a
passion for eating, teaching
is what he ultimately hopes
his restaurant can do for
people.
"I am interested in expos-
ing people to the benefits of
the food rather than the fla-
vors," he said. "The flavors
are wonderful, but the ben-
efits far outweigh it."
If anyone can agree, Gold-
ing can, but she also said the
food is just plain fun.
"Enjoy yourself it's an
adventure for your taste
buds."

Folks on a candlelit tour of historic Winter Park buildings on Thursday enjoyed the speeches of James Gamble Rogers and Hamilton Holt impersonators.


Morse, Chase, Holt and Rogers took visitors back in time to Winter Park's birth


BRITTNI JOHNSON
GUEST REPORTER

Charles H. Morse stood
bathed in candlelight at
the entrance to the Osceola
Lodge, poised to greet a pa-
rade of guests with a smile,
introduction and a hand-
shake.
Despite the wholly au-
thentic crystal knobs,
warmly worn wood floors
and antique furniture in-
side the historic building,
the flat screen television
and cable box were telltale
signs that the guests hadn't
truly been transported into
Winter Park's past.
On Thursday, the Friends
of Casa Feliz did a candlelit
walking tour with stops at
the Osceola Lodge, Central
Park and Greeneda Court.


At each stop, costumed im-
personators of famed Win-
ter Park residents -Morse,
Loring Chase, Hamilton
Holt and Gamble Rogers -
spoke about their experi-
ences living in the city.
Betsy Owens, executive
director of the Friends of
Casa Feliz and organizer
of the event, slipped eas-
ily into the role of audience
member while watching the
actors.
"I really forgot that I
wasn't listening to the actu-
al historical figure that was
being portrayed," she said.
Also on Thursday, the
Friends hosted the fourth
annual Gamble Rogers Col-
loquium on Historic Preser-
vation. Before the candlelit
tour, Joseph Riley, mayor of
Charleston, S.C. since 1975,


spoke to 200 people about
how he transformed his
town into one visited for
its preservation of beautiful
historical places. He spoke
on the importance of saving
historical architecture to
the cities themselves.
"Every time we let one go,
we lose the fabric, the tex-
ture of the place," Riley said.
This explains the mis-
sion of the Friends and their
event. They hope that while
entertaining and inspiring
people, they also educate
them on how vital it is to
preserve historic buildings,
like their beloved Casa Fe-
liz.
Janet Robison, who at-
tended the event and lives
in a Gamble home, definite-
ly got the message.
"It excites people about


preserving the historical
aspects of the town, and it
gives people a great sense of
where they're from," Robin-
son said.
And excitement there
was. People made friends,
unreservedly sharing what
they knew about the peo-
ple and places on the tour
with each other. Their eyes
locked on the second sto-
ry balconies in Greeneda
Court, where Jack and John
Rogers, son and grandson
of James Gamble Rogers,
played the noted architect.
Another actor played Ham-
ilton Holt. They gave their
speeches in appropriate
dress vests and bow ties.
Owens called the night
a "smashing success," with

The meaning of life


What's it all about, Afiie?
Is it justfor the moment we live?
"Alfie" by Burt Bacharach

I Googled "What is the meaning of
life?" There were a little more than
38 million results (definitions, ex-
amples, cites, etc.). I thought that
number exceedingly low.
The meaning of life is a chal-
lenging question. The answer, for
me, doesn't simply or quickly roll
off the tongue. Does it for you?
That has to be a difficult ques-
tion even for a believer in a per-
sonal god (which I am not). Maybe
not, however. "Existing ever after
in the glory and grace of God."
How's that for a speculative at-
tempt at what a true believer
might define as the meaning of
life? I imagine it is something like
that or a variation on that theme.
But that is not what I am after.
That doesn't seem like life to me.
It sounds more like being some
groveling backbencher in the
hosanna chorus of a jealous deity
(See: Exodus 20:4). Booooring.
No, what is the meaning of life
for a human being here on dear
Mother Earth? I want to differen-
tiate for the sake of this exercise
between human life and all other
life on the planet. I feel/think our
species is the only species that has
the reflective ability to consider
this question. This fact, however,
does not, in any way, diminish the
inherent value of all life. How you
want your hamburger cooked not-
withstanding.
I got on to this quest (actually
I've been on it all my life) because
I am a speaker in search of a topic.
I was reading (in Sunday's New
York Times) about Kenneth Starr.
You remember good ol' sheet-
sniffing Ken Starr of Clinton im-
peachment fame? He's recently
been made president of Baylor
University. He was asked if Ameri-


ca was a Christian nation. He said,
no it isn't, "because of religious
freedom." Not only that, but he
said you don't have to believe in
God to be an ethical person. Well,
you could have picked my jaw off
the floor.
I'll be touching on such mat-
ters (plus the meaning of life!) on
Tuesday, May 18 at 10 a.m. at the
Winter Park University Club locat-
ed at 841 N. Park Ave. This is open
to the public and I hope you will
consider attending. Plenty of con-
venient parking. Just walk right in
and ask, "Where is that fool Jep-
son, speaking?"
The world is a better place be-
cause of the Winter Park Univer-
sity Club (in spite of its facilitating
my speech. Hah-Hah!). It fosters
independent thinking by provid-
ing a forum for diverse opinion.
Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, "A
foolish consistency is the hobgob-
lin of little minds, adored by little
statesmen and philosophers and
divines." The University Club of
Winter Park confronts that idea
head-on by fostering an environ-
ment of independent thought
and tolerance. The motto for the
University Club is: Intellectio So-
dalitas, which translates to: Fel-
lowship in Knowledge and Under-
standing.
With fellowship and sistership
in mind, I encourage my more
thoughtful readers to consider
joining the University Club of
Winter Park. For less than half the
price of a Coke a day, fellowship
and knowledge is yours. Join.

Trusting 'a pig in a poke'


Barack Obama did not tell us that
he wants to "help America" he
said plainly enough that he wants
to "transform America." To achieve
power, Obama is wantonly intent
upon decimating our national
treasury. He is fast turning our
country's history into a tragedy.
When I first sang opera in Mu-
nich's Nationaltheater, during a
rehearsal pause, I walked down
the street to the Hofbrauhaus beer
hall in the Platzl. A waiter showed
me the corner table where, after
WWI, some bedraggled ex-soldiers
plotted to concoct the bad dream
of "Nationalsozialismus" (national
socialism). Their fuhrer, Adolf Hit-
ler, indigenously hated the truth,
and was famous as the inventor of
"The Big Lie." The German people
were then struggling to make a
go of democracy in the Weimar
Republic. Political mischief, wher-
ever conceived, seems destined to
find a way to unleash its havoc.
The U.S. today is a great and
good country, where freedom
includes the harboring of people
who long to "change the system."
A growing and contagious feel-
ing of disquietude is emanating
from the White House and from
other places where Barack Obama
hawks his far-left wares.
By now the American public
knows that he and his cohorts
are dangerous Marxists, and that
Marxism, which the Obama-
crowd labels "Socialism," will be
our national "ism" if we don't stop
these radicals.
Installing Socialist teachers in
the school system can produce
young left-wingers by the yard -
the schoolyard. Socialism is easy
to sell, for it tells you more about
what you're going to "get" than
what you are going to give up.
The unique treasures that we
Americans have as a birthright,
such as freedom of thought, free-


dom of opinion and freedom of
expression, are not negotiable in
exchange for the extravagant false
promises of Socialism.
Americans who are vulnerable
to Obama's Spiel about "trans-
forming our birthright" are like
the guy married to the smartest,
most beautiful woman in town,
and is still looking around. Obama
is bad news and always will be.
What treasure can Obama lure
us with that we don't already
have tenfold? As to talk regard-
ing Obama's birthplace, trying
to prove such things is not only a
philosophical snare, but a com-
plete waste of time.
We shouldn't question the
man's antecedence, rather, his de-
ceptive wordplay. Obama has been
professionally trained to look peo-
ple right in the eye and tell them
unbroken cock-and-bull that the
incognoscenti swallow whole as
truth.
Dishonest, dangerous politi-
cians are nothing new on our
shores. But when we recognize
them and still let them lead the
way, we get what we deserve, and
the denouement ain't pretty... It
is my belief that the United States
cannot stand more than one term
of Obama's arrogant mendacity.
His serpentine deception has
him, by now, probably believing
his own lies, and assembling an
army of the credulous who will
follow him to the gates of hell.
Let us be truly thankful for the
blessings that are ours and be-
ware of a "disingenuous pig in a
Socialist poke."

Fix the financials for rail
On May 24, the Winter
Park City Commission will
review the commuter rail
agreement between Winter
Park and Orange County.
It is disappointing to see
anonymous e-mails already
circulating suggesting that
any discussion of com-
muter rail indicates opposi-
tion to it. Several financial
elements in the agreement
pose a danger to the fu-
ture financial health of
our community. To reduce
those dangers I recommend


that the city:

1. Require Orange County
to treat Winter Park in the
same way Volusia, Seminole
and Osceola treat their
cities with proposed com-
muter rail stops. Orange
County's position is that
commercial construction
will follow construction of
each commuter rail stop
and the income generated
will fund operational costs
of the system. This may be
true for Maitland, with de-
velopment on the Parker


Lumber site. But such new
development is neither
expected nor desired near
our Central Park stop. The
effect of Orange County's
position is that Winter Park
residents are taxed twice
for this rail system, instead
of the funding coming from
the county taxes as in Volu-
sia, Seminole and Osceola.

2. If Orange County can-
not be persuaded to follow
the example of the other
counties, place a cap on the
city's share of the expenses


after the first seven years
of operation. Since our
city referendum in March
2007, the county, without
the city's sanction, raised
Winter Park's costs. (This
action applied to the des-
ignated share of bond and
operational costs within
one year of execution of the
agreement.) I am pleased
that current plans indicate
the state may finance the
construction bonds. But as
written now, the agreement
requires the city to pay any
increase that might occur if


the estimates of fee income
and operational costs are
too low. Unfortunately, the
city's share is calculated
based on miles of rail track
rather than what it can af-
ford to pay.

3. Do its best to determine
how much the city would
have to reimburse the
county, the state of Florida,
and/or the U.S government
if the city should decide to
terminate the stop in the

Ok, ladies, when was the last time
you had a tea party? It might have
been when you were little, dress-
ing up dolls and teddy bears for
pretend tea and cookies. Well,
I'm excited to relive some of that
simple joy and host a real tea party
as a bridal shower.
If you'd like to host a bridal
shower tea, try some of these easy
ideas:

Set out your best dishes and silver-
ware. If you can, mix and match vin-
tage pieces for a charming, old-fash-
ioned look. Add some pretty floral
napkins and fresh flowers and you'll
have a beautiful table in no time.

Food for a tea party should be light
and fresh. An assortment of finger
sandwiches, scones or muffins, fresh
fruits and a vegetable tray could be
set out buffet style. Serve fresh juices,
sparkling ciders and, of course, a
good selection of teas. And don't
forget dessert! These Zesty Orange
Cookie Cups are simple to make and
are just the right size to serve with
tea.

Send each guest home with a spe-
cial-tea souvenir. Give them each a
colorful teacup filled with packets
of tea. And for an extra touch, add a
flavored honey stick, too.

worth celebrating, visit VeryBest-
Baking.com.

Zesty Orange Cookie Cups
Makes 48 cookie cups

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups (12-ounce package) Nestle Toll House


Premier White Morsels
2 large eggs
1 can (14 ounces) Nestle Carnation Sweetened
Condensed Milk
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon orange extract
1 tablespoon grated orange peel (1 medium
orange)

PREHEAT oven to 350 F. Grease 48 mini-
muffin cups.

BEAT butter and sugar in medium mixer bowl
until creamy. Add flour; beat until mixture is
evenly moist, crumbly and can be formed into
balls. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Press
each ball onto bottom and up side of prepared
muffin cups to form wells. Place 5 morsels in
each cup.

BEAT eggs in medium bowl with wire whisk.
Stir in sweetened condensed milk and orange
extract. Spoon almost a measuring tablespoon
of mixture into each muffin cup, filling about 3/4
full.

BAKE for 15 to 17 minutes or until centers are
puffed and edges are just beginning to brown.
Upon removing from oven, gently run knife
around each cup. While still warm, top each cup
with 8 to 10 morsels (they will soften and retain
their shape). Cool completely in pans on wire
racks. With tip of knife, remove cookie cups
from muffin pans. Top with grated orange peel
just before serving. Store in a covered container
in the refrigerator.

Admit it, when all that stands be-
tween you and reaching your des-
tination on time is a yellow traffic
light, you think about breezing
through it, right?
Sometimes it's too tempting
to pass up. Flying through the
intersection, the light fades from
yellow to red just as the car slides
through. Made it!
Not so fast. A bill, now await-
ing Gov. Charlie Crist's signature,
would make it lawful for state
roadways to be monitored by red-
light cameras, installed to catch
motorists blowing through red
lights.
Even now, those who think
they've gotten away with it might
be getting a $125 citation in the
mail with a photo of their vehicle
crossing the line on red, as cam-
eras have already been installed
in seven Orlando intersections
and several in Winter Springs.
Although it has been a hot topic
at Orange County Commission
meetings and in many city meet-
ings including Winter Park and
Maitland within the county, the
cameras have yet to appear in Or-
ange County.
Reports show that the cameras
have made millions of dollars for
many of the 30 Florida cities that
have installed them nothing to
sneeze at in these harsh economic
times. But they have also been
marketed as a way to keep our
streets safer.
The National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration reported
that one in five drivers admit to
running a red light in one of the
last 10 intersections they've driven
through and that 96 percent of
Americans are afraid of being hit
by a red-light runner. In a 2006
study, Orange County found that
out of the average daily traffic of
109,507 vehicles crossing the East
Colonial Drive and Alafaya Trail in-
tersection, 1,808 ran the red light.


Red-light runners averaged 2,654
daily at the Orange Blossom Trail
and Sand Lake Road intersection.
Orlando reported that there
were 525 accidents in the city re-
lated to red-light runners in 2007
and that the cameras they in-
stalled were meant to reduce that
number. The $125 (at least) cita-
tion certainly is a good incentive.
If the state is behind the mea-
sure, municipalities that were
hesitant to install them in the past
would be more likely to move for-
ward. But some question whether
the cameras actually cause more
harm than good. A University of
South Florida study showed ac-
cidents increased at intersections
where cameras were installed be-
cause motorists abruptly stopped
at an intersection to avoid a cita-
tion.
And the study was not alone in
its findings. Both North Carolina
and Virginia found that crashes,
mostly rear-enders that resulted in
injury, increased at red-light cam-
era intersections. The USF study
also concluded that the number
of red-light runners has decreased
over the last decade. According to
a study commissioned for the Flor-
ida Department of Transportation,
fatalities resulting from red-light
running decreased from 114 in
2000 to 100 in 2007.
Does this mean that red light
cameras are not needed, or that
they cause accidents rather than
curb them? When Orlando stud-
ied the number of accidents at
their seven camera intersections,
they found crashes were down at
five but up at two. Rear-end col-
lisions decreased at five of the
intersections, were up at one and
remained the same at the sev-
enth. Studying seven intersections
might not be enough to conclude
whether red light cameras will
make our roadways safer but five
out of seven isn't bad.

(A previous move by Ms.
Dillaha to terminate the
agreement in January 2009
was defeated by a 3 to 2
vote.) If Ms. Dillaha wanted
something other than ter-
mination of our commuter


rail station she would have
been working with Orange
County over the past two
years instead of co-opting
untold hours of city com-
mission time, spending tax-
payer money for conflicting
legal opinions, and prof-
fering irrelevant and false
objections in an effort to
undermine the commuter
rail agreement.
Ms. Dillaha is asking
for the SunRail commuter
trains to come through
Winter Park and never stop.
She is asking that we forego
having our station (which
is fully paid for by state and
federal dollars) and face all
the impacts of having com-
muter trains go through
Winter Park while never re-
alizing any of the benefits.
A few moments of thought
on this reality will make it
clear that killing our par-
ticipation in SunRail would
be a monumental strategic
disaster for Winter Park:

* SunRail is going to happen.


* State and federal funds are
paying the $1.2 billion capi-
tal cost to establish the four
county SunRail system.
* The city's financial ex-
posure to ongoing costs is
protected.
* Winter Park's decision was
to participate or have the
trains running through our
town without stopping.
* The citizens made the de-
cision to have a station in a
2007 referendum and our
City Commission has both
the authority and the duty
to make that happen.
Winter Park citizens
need to write the City Com-
mission to demand a stop
to the obstruction and a
beginning to the coopera-
tion needed to make our
SunRail station a reality and
a success for Winter Park.

tation for the statements

Let Floridians vote
on near-shore oil
With the massive and ongo-
ing oil spill in the Gulf of
Mexico spewing millions
of gallons into the na-
tion's marine waters, now
is the time for our elected
government to allow us,
the citizens of the state, to
decide whether we want to
allow oil and gas explora-
tion in our state waters. Our
state waters stretch from
our beaches to three miles
out in the Atlantic and nine
miles out into the Gulf. I
am hopeful Gov. Crist will
soon call a special session
and that the Legislature
will pass a Joint Resolu-
tion to put this issue on
the November 2010 ballot.
Allow us the opportunity
to amend the constitution
and stop any chance of this
ever happening right next
to our shoreline.
I can think of no more
crucial issue to Florida's
economy and ecology. We


rely on tourism and the
trademark of white sandy
beaches to create and re-
tain jobs. If the ongoing
spill had happened right
off Naples, Jacksonville,
Tampa or Miami, our entire
economy would take a hit
that would last years. It is
the last thing we need to
worry about. If the amend-
ment passes, oil drilling will
continue in the Gulf, just
not right next to Florida.
We do not yet fully know
where the massive spill
south of Pensacola will end
up, and which communi-
ties will have to pay the
price. But citizens should
be allowed to make their
opinions known in Novem-
ber. This is an issue that
supersedes Republican,
Democratic or Indepen-
dent partisan politics. It is
an issue about our future.
Let us vote.

Florida arts offer variety


Artist/architect Richard Reep's
timely exhibit
When Susan Loden booked an
exhibit by Winter Park artist and
architect Richard Reep to open on
May 13, neither curator nor art-
ist could have foreseen the tragic
irony which makes this exhibit
the most 'timely' art exhibit of the
season. Through painting, draw-
ing, and assemblage, Reep's art
evolves from his Nostradamus-like
fascination with our urban future.
The often bleak changes, due to
technology, climate, and economic
shifts, have led the artist to see
abandoned oil rigs as tomorrow's
cities. Urban Intrigue; Richard Reep
at Lake Eustis Museum of Art may
be viewed now through June 6,
with an artist's talk and reception
scheduled for May 16 from 1-3 p.m.
Call 352-483-2900 or visit www.
LakeEustisMuseumofArt.org for
more details.

Winter Garden gets behind "Joseph"
This is the final weekend for the


Winter Garden Theater's first self-
produced musical Joseph and the
Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
This early Lloyd Webber musical
features community participation
in a cast of "hometown Winter Gar-
den talent" that is 'professional' in
every sense of the word. The stag-
ing and costumes are wonderfully
inventive and the leads, played by
David Coalter (Joseph) and Patte
dePova (Narrator) are first rate.
This is a not-to-be-missed begin-
ning for the Garden Theatre as they
embark on their own productions
- fun for the whole family and tru-
ly worthy of our support. For more
information, visit gardentheatre.

Spring awakens at the Bob Carr
Having swept the Tony Awards
(with 8 wins including Best Musi-
cal) in the 2007 season,
Broadway's most controversial
new musical in years is coming to
Orlando. Set in 19th century Ger-
many, Spring Awakening tells the
story of teenage self-discovery and


sexuality as seen through the char-
acters of three teenagers. Haunt-
ing and provocative, the musical
celebrates the complex journey
from youth to adulthood. Spring
Awakening will play May 18-23 at
the Bob Carr. Prepare yourself, the
New York Times said, "Broadway
may never be the same." Tickets
can be purchased at all Ticketmas-
ter locations. Online purchases can
be made at www.OrlandoBroad-
way.com; to charge-by-phone call

The Orlando Museum of Art
(for children)
Each summer the Orlando Museum
of Art presents a family-friendly
exhibit that is both entertaining
and educational. This year the
work of New York Times author
and illustrator, Mo Willems will be
featured from May 22 through Au-
gust 29. Knuffle Funny: The Art and
Whimsy of Mo Willems will exhibit
Willems' sketches and drawings of
quirky characters and even quirki-
er story lines. Willems is known for
his award-winning picture books
"Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the
Bus!" and "Knuffle Bunny: A Cau-
tionary Tale". Original sketches
from these books and others will

Seeds of joy

The Mustard Seed is starting fresh after a shake up in leadership stripped them of funding, support


MEGAN STOKES
OBSERVER STAFF

Tears welled in Yahaira
Velez's eyes as she hugged
the bunk-bed frame that
would become her child's
bed.
"I can really have this?"
she asked in disbelief.
This is the best part of
Yolanda Garcia's job. The
25-year veteran at the Mus-
tard Seed of Central Florida
has watched thousands
of people, many of whom
have lost everything, tour
their 2,000-square-foot
warehouse, picking out fur-
niture, clothing, appliances
and anything else that will
help make their a house a
home.
Velez found out about
Mustard Seed from Orange
County Commissioner
Mildred Fernandez, who
has been championing the
recovering organization for
the last month.
In 2009, reports surfaced
that alleged some wrong-
doing on the founder and
former executive director
Carol Kane's behalf, such
as dressing her daughter's
home with Mustard Seed
furniture and abusing the


organization's finances.
That's in addition to the
power struggle that Execu-
tive Director Michelle Lyles
said took place between
Kane and Sharon Whitely,
who was appointed execu-
tive director in late 2008.
Whitley was laid off in
April 2009 because of the
difficult economy, accord-
ing to a letter from Kane,
but Lyles said it was because
the two butted heads. The
Mustard Seed Board of Di-
rectors asked Kane to retire
in February, even though
Lyles was appointed to the
position in August.
In the letter, Kane said
Whitley and former board
member John Baumann
had been spreading deroga-
tory rumors about the orga-
nization's finances but that
the Mustard Seed had two
independent audits done
and "nothing has been
found to support these er-
roneous accusations," she
wrote.

Things looking up
Nonetheless, the 26-year-
old organization in Eaton-
ville, just outside of Mait-
land, has suffered financial-
ly because of the shake-up.


PHOTO BY MEGAN STOKES THE OBSERVER
Yahaira Velez could not believe she would be able to take furniture home to her children nearly free of charge.


Many supporters withdrew
their contributions last
year. Lyles said she and her
team have worked tire-
lessly to bring them back
and find new partnerships
in the community, making


200 out-bound calls daily.
Now more donations
are pouring in than usual
and more of those donated
items are being doled out
to community members
in need. The organization


helps more than 100 fami-
lies a month.
"Things were so backed
up in the warehouse that
we could not get the fork-
lifts through the aisles to

home. It can include post-
ing photos and information
about the home on high-
volume websites, emailing
open house invitations,
placing advertisements in
local publications and put-
ting a traditional for-sale
sign in front of the resi-
dence.
List the home on the
local multiple listing ser-
vice, which all Realtors
- locally, nationally and
internationally can ac-
cess as they seek a home for
their buyers.
Bring qualified buyers
to preview the home.
Guide the seller
through all aspects of the
sales contract and deal with
the buyer on any items that
may need to be negotiated.
Help the buyer find
financing, arrange for a
home inspection and ap-
praisal, and complete other
details in preparation for
closing the deal.
Place the buyer's de-
posit in escrow and take
care of other necessary pa-
perwork.
Serve as the seller's rep-
resentative at the closing
table.

Deciding to work with a Re-
altor can give sellers peace
of mind. A Realtor in Flor-
ida is more than a licensed
professional with training
and experience in real es-
tate a Realtor voluntarily
agrees to abide by a code of
ethics and promises to pro-
vide honest treatment to
both sellers and buyers.

MUSTARD I Eatonville charity has seen a rise in furniture, clothing donations

get the furniture," Lyles
said. "We had a significant
amount of inventory we
were holding onto for di-
sasters, but my theory is:
if there is a disaster, local
companies will step up.
There are people who need
these things now."
Lyles said Mustard Seed
is booked for donation
pick-ups for the next three
weeks. However, monetary
donations remain low.
Heart of Florida United Way
only recently took the orga-
nization off probation and
is now supporting them
again.
"Because of the battle
going on over who's run-
ning Mustard Seed, we
withheld funding until
things were ironed out,"
said United Way Spokesper-
son Michelle Plant, adding
that Mustard Seed must still
submit monthly reports to


make sure they continue
to progress in a positive
direction. "We had a long-
standing partnership with
the Mustard Seed, and they
continue to meet an im-
portant need in the com-
munity."
They are also becoming
green recycling paper
and accepting broken fur-
niture that can be fixed or
made into new pieces, and
reaching out to local busi-
nesses, letting them know
their trash might be Mus-
tard Seed's treasure. The re-
sult: rows of chairs from the
Double Tree Castle Hotel,
piles of dishes from Darden
Restaurants and boxes of
educational DVDs from Ra-
ven Moon Entertainment
of Longwood.
"We want people to
know that things have
stabilized here, and we're
coming up with new ways
to do things. It's not just the
same old, same old," Lyles


said.
"I think the fact that we
are getting more donations
means that the community
has restored their faith in
the Mustard Seed, but I still
feel that we have a long way
to go. There are still people
who don't know about us."
The shake-up did more
than just jostle the organi-
zation's funding. It made
some fear for the Mustard
Seed's future. Garcia said
that at times, she worried
that she may no longer be
able to help her clients.
"The things we were
hearing really set your
mind. This is the only place
where people can get this
kind of help, and the first
thing I thought of is, 'Where
are my clients going to go
to get help? Where are their
kids going to sleep if they
don't have beds? Where are
the families going to eat
dinner if they don't have
a table?' It really gets you


thinking, you know," Garcia
said.

A fresh start
Velez scoped out new dress-
ers for her six children, and
nearly jumped for joy when
she was told a washer/dryer
set was available and tested
a cream-colored couch
- furnishing her second
chance in life.
The 28-year-old IHOP
waitress was released from
prison in August after
spending more than two
years there for providing
false information to a law
enforcement officer and
violating probation. She
left her kids, ranging in age
from 2 to 11, with a friend
who promised to keep
the siblings together. Now
Velez is in a custody battle
to win five of them back
- her 4-year-old son lives
with her now.
"I got out of prison to
find a lot of doors closed on


me," she said. "I'm a felon
so I couldn't find a job.
"They rehabilitate you
but they won't give you a
chance once you're out. I
think that's why a lot of
people go back to the life
that put them in prison -
because no one will give
them a second chance."
Garcia started at Mus-
tard Seed as a client, vol-
unteered for two years and
then became an employee.
The help she received from
the organization pulled
her out of depression and
gave her family the sup-
port it needed. Now Garcia
said Mustard Seed is getting
what she got 25 years ear-
lier.
"How it went before and
now, we're getting a lot of
furniture in and helping the
clients who need it," she
said. "We are getting a fresh
start."
