If Winter Park were a person, what would he or she be like? That is what the team at Engauge, an independent adver tising agency, has been asking itself for the last year. In 2009, Winter Park began working with the Community Redevelopment Agency, business owners and the community to create a brand identity for downtown Winter Park. The project began to combat slow business due to the problematic economy. The city paid Engauge $90,000 to create a mar keting plan for the Park Avenue area, with a logo, color scheme, tagline and video. In focus groups, Engauge asked people what words came to mind when they thought of Winter Park. Its unique, its community and its Park Avenue, said Barb Scherer, Engauges executive director, in her presentation to the CRA board meeting on June 27. Brands are built from the inside-out, which means that everybody that is working and living here has a vested interest in attracting other people to this area to shop, dine, attend events, or otherwise. When deciding on how to market downtown Winter Park, the agency had to consider many details about the area, including its purpose, values, positioning and personality. Scherer said, This is where we ask any of the participants in our groups, If the Winter Park brand walked into the room, how would you describe that person and its per sonality? The groups decided that Winter Park is a historic place that brings people together. As a person, she would be stylish, intellectual, charming, hospitable and sociable. Every day in Winter Park is exceptional, Scherer said. the chosen tagline to represent With a quick announcement SunRail is coming to Central Florida. Now local business leaders and politicians are trying to decide what to do when it pulls into the station. Gov. Rick Scotts decision came after a six-month freeze on the plan while he and a team of lawyers picked over it looking for holes that could sink it before it began construction. But his lawyers concluded that if he had attempted to stop the system, the ensuing lawsuit may be un-winnable, prompting an announcement Friday that he would allow the train to move forward. U.S. Rep. John Mica (R-Winter Park), who had spearheaded the rail plan from Washington, D.C., said that he thought Scott was reluctant to move forward because it wasnt his own plan, having passed through the hands of former Govs. Jeb Bush and Charlie Crist. Most of the terms were negotiated two governors ago, Mica said. He would do it differently than they did. He was handed this by two differ The new label will be StunRail, as the the layers of this onion peel back to reveal the lemon.Page 12 Fun on the FourthWinter Park hosted its Olde Fashioned 4th of July Celebration on Monday.Page 5 Church on RegisterThe Church of the Good Shepherd in Maitland makes the history books.Page 10 Page 9 A voice in the storm d Branding downtownGov.

AMY SIMPSON Observer Staff Please see BRAND Page 4 Please see RAIL Page 2 Signs for bizJENNY ANDREASSON Observer Staff Please see SIGNS Page 4Maitland City Council will consider an ordinance on Monday, July 11 that would make it easier for businesses to use temporary sign banners to promote openings or special events. Councilman Phil Bonus said at the June 27 meeting that now is a more important time than ever to get businesses to open in the city and stay there. He said no one knew that RanGetsu had its grand opening last month because the Village at Lake Lily restaurant wasnt allowed any special signage. He also cited a recently shuttered eatery across from City Hall that could have used some help. We just saw the closing of NYPD (Pizza), Bonus said. We have to spur business in the downtown corridor.Electronic boardsThe ordinance also seeks to crecity information signs. Maitland would like to purchase electronic bulletin boards to place in the downtown corridor as well as the west side to advertise city and cultural partner events and amber alerts. Anybody on the computer can design what goes on that (electronic communication) board, so the board is up to date with new information, Maitland Leisure Services Director Chuck Jordan said.

Thursday, July 7, 2011 Page 2 Winter Park / Maitland Observer ent administrationsand four county governments. But what were his options? He had none left, Mica said. And so Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad stood behind a podium at a press conference on Friday and announced that the last roadblock had fallen. But he had a warning from the gover nor. All stakeholders and partners will be held accountable as the project moves forward, Prasad said. If the system failed, he said, the stakeholders would be left holding the bag. Now those same stakeholders are rushing to make sure SunRail succeeds. Reeling in ridersBefore the announcement, many municipalities were already readying to build the 17 stops SunRail is expected to service, but now Central Florida cities are scrambling to become destinations for rail riders, deciding how to position themselves as places to work and play. Winter Park Chamber of Commerce President Patrick Chapin said he knew SunRail had too strong a case to fail. Hes just hoping the riders show up. I thought this is a slam dunk, he said. There was just such overwhelming support from the community. Now that Scotts decision is working with local businesses to create deals for riders who show their rail tickets at the register. And hes hoping to make Winter Park an all-day destination for riders from as far as DeLand and Kissimmee. People want to come down here, but it can be a drive from Kissimmee and downtown and so forth, Chapin said. So were going to offer incentives. Weve done it in the past with bus tour groups. I think well think of some neat incentives to get people down here. People can come here, go to lunch, shop, relax in Central Park. SunRails going to make it that much easier. For the bulk of expected ridpected to come from DeLand and step off in Central Park already working to add in transportation connections to get riders from the station to their destination. People are going to stop there at the station, go to Winter Park Tech, take classes at Full Sail, go to Winter Park Memorial Hospital, Chapin said. I know lots of people who live in DeLand and work in Winter Park. Theyre going all over the place. Playing the numbers gameJust how many riders will step off in Winter Park is anybodys guess, though estimates have been thrown around. U.S. Rep. John Mica said that hed seen a few studies and polls showing half or more of workers who live outside Winter Park would use the train to commute. Thatd make the system far cheaper and compared to new roads, he said. On I-4, one lane will carry 2,000 cars per hour at 60 mph, Mica said. I take the capacity of this rail line, which already exists, and I can carry 5,000 to 15,000 people on that little nar row existing track. Though buses had long been touted as a viable alternative to a rail system, he said theyll be used to support it, not supplant it. For moving commuters long distances, SunRail will be cheaper in the end, Mica said. Nothing I can build can move more people for less money than commuter rail, and this is about half the cost of a bus, Mica said. People say just buy more buses. This costs far less than operating a bus. But until its built, the economic viability of the system remains just a series of estimates. In the meantime, the Chamber is working to get a dedicated funding source after the initial funding agreement for SunRail expires in seven years. Maitland moves on downtownJust up the road, Maitland is already moving on plans to build the station, and to create its new downtown around it. Were going to do everything we can to get it up, Mayor Howard Schieferdecker said. Its a big priority for us. That priority will rapidly shift toward bringing in developers who could shape the look of the new commercial center of Maitland, he said. Talks with developers are already in the works. If I have anything to do with it, were going to have some good opportunities coming, he said. Theres a lot of developers coming back and showing inter est. Theres nothing concrete yet. But you have discussion before we have activity. And just like in business, the mantra is location, location, location. Schieferdecker is calling the train stations new epicenters of economic growth. That station itself will become a big source of economic development, Schieferdecker said. Theyre working on a mixed-use development right next to it. All these stations are going to become major economic hubs. Its not just us. Its everybody thats near the station.Lessons from Tri-RailThats something that didnt receive a fair trial in the frequently maligned Tri-Rail system in South Florida, Mica said. The trains, running on the existing rail line, mirrored the path of Interstate 95, which cut down on the trains usefulness to commuters, he said. When they built Tri-Rail, they said it wasnt a success, he said. But they built the track right along I-95, not where people were going. It didnt even go to downtown Miami. It still doesnt. Though Mica is working on that plan to extend the Tri-Rail to connect with rail going into downtown Miami, thats still a year away, he said, and will cost substantially more per mile than the SunRail system. The Central Florida commuter rail system is so well designed, he said, that parts of the Tri-Rail system may soon attempt to mir ror it and improve economic viability. After years of hearing that SunRail could be the next TriRail, now Mica said it could be the other way around. Id say Central Florida is getting the bargain of bargains, Mica said. Now Tri-Rail is considering buying a route like SunRail has.

Were trying to do something temporarily to get things going, Mayor Howard Schieferdecker said. It needs a little bit of work, but I do think we should go forward with this, get this out, and go through the sign code and make sure its properly done for our city.Sign controlPlanning and Zoning Commissioner Dale McDonald said the city has been lax in enforcing its current sign code policy in regards to banners. Its a wild west show in this city for banners, he said. Theres no enforcement; no parameters. The current sign code says that banners can be up for 48 hours but some have been up for months, he said. Bonus asked for a review of the entime Ive heard about uneven enforcement for signs in general, he said. There seems to be some confusion or at least doubt as to whose job it is. City Manager Jim Williams said enforcement is a double-edged sword. More enforcement means more angry businesses, he said. Staff is trying to balance for the greater good. CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGESIGNS | Maitland to overhaul sign code in the fall Two different logos were presented to the City Commission during the CRA meeting. The Commission voted unanimously for one that combined classic lettering with a modern design, and a deep blue and peacock green, along with a small reference to a peacock feather. Steven Leary, a city commissioner with a background in marketing and advertising, said, I think they did a great job. I think the logo has presented a couple of different aspects that the city can use I think it represents the city well. Kristen Zucks, who was also part of the presentation, said of Winter Parks presence in social media, We found also that based on the low volume of chatter, that we could highly step up in frequency and substance of conversations about downtown Winter Park. This means that residents and visitors can look forward to downtown having a larger presence on sites such as Facebook and Foursquare, so visitors to the area can share their experiences with friends and check in to local shops and restaurants. As you check in, everyone whos a friend of yours sees that. So that not only increases awareness, but we can also ofdowntown area using those programs, Zucks said. with its strategy for downtown.

Engauge, one of the nations largest independent advertising agencies, unveiled the initial elements including brand strategy and proposed logo with tagline to the CRA Board and meeting attendees including local residents, merchants, business owners and key stakeholders. In an effort to give the CBD a competitive advantage in todays retail climate, the CRA hired Engauge to develop a marketing plan. These efforts began in 2009 when Americas Research Group conducted a study and found that there was very little cooperative marketing being done by downtown Winter Park businesses. This study led to the development of a Park Avenue Area Strategic Plan that addressed six goals. Engauge was & increase marketing of the Park Avenue area. With the approval of the initial elements, Engauge will continue to develop the marketing plan that will communicate this new brand to the community locally, regionally and worldwide. The brand elements currently remain under the ownership of Engauge and cannot be used for any purpose without written approval from Engauge or the City of Winter Park.

Presented by: Hosted by: Sponsored by: Most Older People Have DiverticulosisDEAR DR. DONOHUE:I am a 78-year-old female,active and in good health or so I thought. I eat right and never smoked or drank alcohol. Yesterday,a colonoscopy showed severe diverticulosis. The doctor prescribed Benefiber,then left and never returned. I am stunned. What do I do now? Will I have this forever? Am I unhealthy? How does one develop diverticulosis? What the difference between osisand itis? S.K. ANSWER:Your world isnt collapsing. Youre healthy. Youll have diverticulosis forever. By age 60,half of the people in North America have it. By age 80,two-thirds have it. A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colons muscular wall to its outer surface. A diverticulum looks like a small soap bubble. Its only 1/5 to 2/5 inches (0.5 to 1 cm) in diameter. You can thank our diet for diverticulosis. We refine flour and throw away its bran the outer coat of grain. In countries where whole grains (including the bran) are commonly used,diverticulosis is a rarity. Bran and other fiber hold water in undigested food. Without fiber,the food residue dries and becomes hard. The colon muscles have to generate a great deal of force to keep it moving. That force causes the colon lining to pop through the colon wall as a diverticulum. For most,diverticulosis is a silent condition that remains silent for life. For a few,the diverticulum breaks and causes a local infection in the colon diverticulitis. The pain of a diverticulitis attack is usually felt in the lower left corner of the abdomen, and sometimes people have fever and chills along with the pain. The attack is treated by resting the tract and by giving antibiotics. Were supposed to get 30 grams of fiber a day. Fruits (especially those with edible skins),many vegetables and whole-grain products are the source of dietary fiber. If people cannot get enough fiber in their diet,then commercial products like the one youre taking fill the gap. Metamucil, Perdiem,Citrucel and Fiberall are other examples. The booklet on diverticulosis explains the ins and outs of this very common disorder. To order a copy, write:Dr. Donohue No. 502W,Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipients printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE:My husband has chronic blepharitis and frequently develops hard buildups in both eyes that cause great discomfort. The doctor must remove them two times a month. What can be done to prevent them? S.R. ANSWER:Blepharitis (BLEF-uhRYE-tiss) is inflammation of the eyelid margins,which become red and crusty. The crust can build up into hard deposits. A twice-a-day program of lid cleansing might eliminate the crusts. Have your husband apply warm compresses (a wet washcloth) to closed lids for five to 10 minutes and then massage the lids. After the massage,he cleanses the lid margins with a cotton-tipped applicator dipped in a solution of one part baby shampoo and one part water. The doctor might have to prescribe an antibiotic ointment. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

All Rights ReservedHow Does Your Hospital Rate?It really DOES matter what hospital you go to when you need care. Your life could depend on it. So says the seventh annual study by HealthGrades. This is the same group that tracks doctors,hospitals and nursing homes and assigns a grade for the level of care. Its latest study reveals that your risk of death can be cut as much as 27 percent if you get your care at a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence.To get that designation,a hospital has to pass a long list of criteria. The HealthGrades Web site [www.healthgrades.com] lists by state all of the Distinguishedhospitals. You can search (for free) for grades on a given hospital for any of dozens of medical conditions. Look for Research Hospitals on the front screen of the Web site. Its when you want a full report on a hospital that you have to pay a fee. Youll also have to pay a fee to check out a specific doctor or nursing home it costs money for the report. A much easier way to check on a hospital or doctor is on the governments Health and Human Services website [www.hospitalcompare.hhs .gov]. The HHS layout lets you compare multiple hospitals,right on the same screen. The information is very comprehensive,too. For example,one question concerns the percent of surgery patients who were given an antibiotic at the right time,within one hour before surgery. This is a small detail maybe,but crucial to ones recovery. To find out if there is a Distinguishedhospital in your area,check the HealthGrades Web site and then search for details at the HHS site. Still,if youre facing a major medical issue,perhaps paying for the HealthGrades report would give you needed extra information.

What do you think about this trend,and how do I go about doing this? Larry in Tempe,Ariz.A:Recycled wood flooring is a good trend,in my opinion, because rather than chopping down live trees to supply the hardwood for your floor,wood from many types of disused structures or other sources of salvaged lumber can be remilled to give it a second life. There is some concern that the current stock of highquality salvaged wood will run out eventually,but no timetable has been given for that. Recycled hardwood is often of better quality than new hardwoods. Its been curing for many years,resulting in a tighter grain and more stability. Also, much of the current stock of recycled wood originally came from oldgrowth forests,most of which either no longer exist or are protected,and so youre getting high-quality denseness and stability that most new woods cant match. One thing it is not,however,is cheap. Recycled hardwood costs much more than new (Toolbase Services estimates that it runs about $5.75 to $11 per square foot,while new oak flooring runs about $3 per square foot). Recycled wood also must be installed by a professional. Despite the cost,recycled wood tends to be beautiful and durable and a nice conversation piece at parties. If youre interested in having it installed, many flooring contractors are able to procure and install recycled wood. You should check with more than one contractor,though,get estimates,and ideally work with someone who specializes in recycled wood-flooring installation.

Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475.2009 King Features Synd.,Inc.All types of wood floors need the same type of care: Wipe up liquid spills immediately, dont use harsh cleaners or oil soaps,and sweep,dust mop or vacuum regularly to prevent grit from dulling the finish.Dogs Help Vets Cope With PTSDTheres new ammo in the hunt for a fix for post-traumatic stress disorder. For some veterans,the answers lie in dogs. But not just any dogs. Specially trained dogs are being given to some veterans suffering from PTSD,and in many cases,its working. When out in public,the dogspresence invites social conversation,yet they will place themselves physically between someone approaching and the veteran,who is likely to still be leery of contact. With the dogs,veterans find that theyre able to leave home without fear and can slowly transition to a more normal life. Many of the dogs are trained in prisons in the Puppies Behind Bars program,where they spend a year with specially trained prisoners [www.puppiesbehindbars.com]. To turn the tables a bit,a group called Paws for Purple Hearts [www.assistancedog.org] allows veterans with PTSD to become trainers for dogs that will assist veterans with physical disabilities. Run by Bergin University in California,the Paws program gives a needed sense of purpose to veterans with PTSD,as well as the grounding and self-worth that come from knowing theyre working to help someone else. In this case its a veteran with physical disabilities. For more information,call PPH at 707545-3647 ext. 28. Steps also are being taken to head PTSD off at the pass,again using dogs. Combat Stress Teams in Iraq and Afghanistan are shipped over with therapy dogs that quickly become popular with service personnel. The dogs serve,among other things,as icebreakers and stress relievers,inviting conversations that might otherwise not take place. For a real treat,do an Internet search for Boe and Budge,two therapy dogs that were sent to Iraq with a stress team. Write to Freddy Groves in care of King Features Weekly Service,P.O.

Even if seniors do not contribute much to Facebook through status updates and what their family and friends are have to know computer techenough technology that you can Advancing technologyThe advent of tablet computers such as the iPad could be very good for seniors who want to use social media. Both Bressler and Springall spoke highly of the new technology for its ease a tablet has an advantage over a smart phone in that the screen and buttons are larger. Senior and former Winter Springs Mayor John Bush has had an iPhone for almost two years and recently added an iPad to his arsenal.
