Recreating the vineyards of Napa Valley and Sonoma County is no easy task, but a new restaurant seeks to bring a piece of the wine country to Maitlands downtown. SoNapa Grille, a restaurant in New Smyrna Beach specializing in Napa Valley and Sonoma County cuisine and wine, will open a second location in the Steak and Ale building, which has stood vacant for three years on the corner of Orlando Avenue and Manor Road, across from Lake Lily. SoNapa is scheduled to open in January. Adam Barringer, owner of SoNapa and mayor of New Smyrna Beach since 2009, said he is excited to take a prime piece of the city and beautify it for all to enjoy. Revitalizing downtownIts part of the cultural corridor of Maitland, Barringer said. Were bringing a great project to the city that will create in the neighborhood of 40 full-time jobs at the restaurant, while the money that well be spending on interior and exterior renovations will go to local firms to support the economy. In hopes to shape a popular downtown in Maitland, Mayor Howard Schieferdecker said the restaurants location across from Obituaries are now a regular feature in The Observer.Page 16 Screen dreams on the creators experience at a Page 8 Building a futureA Winter Park resident shares her teenage mother experience to help others stay positive.Page 9 Page 5 Cuckoo for cookies In RemembranceiGovernmentBy: Aug. 4, 2011 DetailsLocal governments get tech-savvy, go paperless Amy Simpson Observer Staff Tax for taxis With high gas prices failing to abate during the summer, the Winter Park City Commission has imposed a surcharge on taxicabs in the city that will help pay the bill. But the new charge will stab riders in the wallet, costing them 50 cents to a dollar more to take a solo ride home. The price hike came about in response to a surcharge imposed by Orlando after the City Council deemed gas prices too high for taxi drivers to be able to earn a living without a surcharge. In Orlando that decision came on June 27, when the City Council decided that with the countrys average gas price hovering above $3.86 in April, it needed to reinstate a fuel surcharge it had instituted in 2008, when the price of gasoline jumped more than 50 cents in five months. Winter Park added a surcharge after Orlando in 2008. That expired in March 2009. On July 11, the Winter Park City Commission unanimously reinstated the charge, effective immediately. Both cities surcharges mirror each other, with a surcharge of $1 for rides starting or ending at Orlando International Airport or Orlando Executive Airport, and 50 cents for all other trips. Winter Park Code Enforcement Director George Wiggins said that the city has a history ISAAC BABCOCK Observer Staff Please see TAXI Page 2 Please see NAPA Page 5 PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE OBSERVERThe former Steak and Ale building will be SoNapa Grilles new home.CARMEN CARROQUINO Observer StaffOut with the ale, in with the wine The Maitland City Council met on July 25 with sleek new gadgets in their leadership arsenal: iPads. Before the meeting began, some Council members joked about playing Angry Birds, while others had trouble finding the documents they would need. Im still learning, Mayor Howard Schieferdecker said. I know the basics of it, but Im not that well-versed on it yet. Maitland purchased nine iPad 2s plus cases, wireless keyboards and other accessories, spending $6,700. Schieferdecker said that the tablets would start paying for themselves after the first year of use. Many cities in Central Florida are adopting the modern and sometimestroublesome technology to end the ritual of printing several-hundred-page documents for each member at every meeting. The city manager, assistant city manager, city clerk and IT department have iPads, as well. The tablets are used strictly for city business, keeping officials calendars, contacts, notes, documents and more on one 10-inch, 600gram machine. Files are shared using Dropbox, an online file-sharing service that allows users to share files over the Internet without printing or even sending emails. Using the app iAnnotate, councilors can mark up and annotate PDFs. Maitland Councilwoman Linda Frosch estimated that the city will save a tree and a half every month. Winter Park leads Winter Park commissioners received iPads about four months ago. The commissioners were previously issued laptops, which cost more and demand more skill. The tablets have not completely replaced laptops yet, but they save the city from printing thousands of pages a month. Fortunately, all of our commissioners are pretty technologically savvy, Communications Director Clarissa Howard said, so they were able to Please see IPAD Page 2

Experience homegrown gardening: of following Orlando with this type of ordinance. Every time Orlando adopts this, we reciprocate soon after, Wiggins said. This helps the taxi drivers. The taxicab drivers lease their cabs from the taxi companies. When the cost of fuel rises, its the drivers that lose out on the cost of fuel. Winter Park City Commissioner Carolyn Cooper said that she didnt like that the last sur charges that took effect were still in place months after gas prices dropped to acceptable levels. We were over-recovering for that entire period of time, she said. For quite a few months, they were getting an emergency surcharge when the price of fuel was low. The seemingly late timing of the surcharge, well after prices reached their peak and subsided slightly, came from what Roger Chapin from Mears Transportation called a regulatory lag. He said that was the reason for the surcharge extension after the last fuel price spike subsided. Prices start to increase, then there are some rumblings that Boy prices are getting high by the time the vehicle for hire administrator says OK, its reached a certain level and prices dont seem to be going down, youve had 3-4 months of increasing prices already, Chapin said, adding that drivers have to pay the extra fuel costs from their own pockets until a surcharge takes effect. Theyve suffered through several months of high gas prices before the regulatory agency could get to this, he said. The surcharge is not perfect but its immediate and it gets to the driver. Wiggins said that as a result of the slow regulatory response and the protracted surcharge after prices drop, the costs should balance out. Again were in a period where the prices spiked for 4-5 months. So youve got nine months that they didnt charge the surcharge, and nine months that they did and the price was below the median. The surcharge will stay in effect until the price of fuel drops below $3.40 for two consecutive months or on March 31.TAXI | CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE adapt pretty well. Winter Parks IT department and city management had recommended using iPads as part of the citys goal of creating a greener local government. The city also put all of their audio files and meeting minutes on its website to encourage citizens to go paperless too. The citys use of iPads is beginning to expand to some of the department heads on a trial basis. Howard received her tablet just weeks ago. Especially in the communication field, she said, its impor tant to keep up with technology, and it does actually increase productivity and efficiency as far as my own per sonal experience.Paper vs. screensIn Winter Springs, not all of the local government officials have adopted the iPad, but the city has gone paper less in the past year. Mayor Charles Lacey said that by using laptops and similar technology, the City Commission saves about 2,000 sheets of paper per meeting, depending on the meetings content. The process would have begun ear lier, but some commissioners insisted on having paper copies of every item. As those commissioners left office, we were fortunate that the commissioners who came in were more receptive to electronic versions, Lacey said. To me, its just cost-saving and a convenience. Lacey does not blame those commissioners who demanded paper copies. He understands that most people grew up using paper and are not comfortable with a keyboard and mouse or touch screen in front of them. Sylvester Smith, Maitlands IT manager, said that some other cities in Florida, such as Deltona, passed on the opportunity to get iPads because they preferred using paper. There are two things with new technology, he said. People are set in their ways and dont want to change, or theyre intimidated by the technology. But our council had no problem with it whatsoever.Cities transitionWinter Springs and Maitland also have a public terminal in City Hall where citizens have online access to local government documents. I think weve got a good, cheap system that wasnt difficult to do, and its fairly easy, Lacey said. If any other cities want to call and get some free advice on how to do it, wed offer our expertise. Oviedo has been using web-based agendas on laptops for about six years. The citys IT staff is looking into iPads, but because they do have laptops and have saved paper that way, it is not certain that they will adopt tablet computers. The city of Orlando is planning to move forward with plans to adopt iPads for their council, as most of their paperwork, such as budget reports, agenda items and evaluations, has been made available online. Only four of the seven councilors still get printed agenda books. You have to keep up with the rest of the world, Schieferdecker said, and if youre way back here in the Dark Ages and everyone else is doing things so much faster, itll cost you something in the future.

Maitland residents are tired of going to Altamonte and Winter Park to eat, he said. With restaurants like Antonios (La Fiamma Ristorante) and RanGetsu, good quality dining spots are enhancing the citys downtown. SoNapa is a great nich restaurant to add. Estimating $500,000 in renovation costs, Barringer said he hopes work will begin in September. Renovations to the roughly 6,700-square-foot building will consist of landscaping the exterior, painting, applying a stucco treatment to the walls and maintenance, and providing outdoor seating to the building that holds about 200 people.California-inspired cuisineThe restaurant will be very warm and inviting in its ambiance, with woods and colors to make people feel like they have walked into a wine tasting room in Sonoma County, Barringer said. Les Callahan, a manager of Antonios in Maitland, said that he sees nothing but positives when it comes to attracting more people to the area, despite possible competition. I look at the whole Maitland area, and Im happy that something is going in there, he said. Visually its not appealing to see rundown and vacant buildings. Although other restaurants are competition, having them creates a destination place for diners to get away without actually leaving. Featuring an all-American fare with a northern California theme to it, the restaurant will feature an extended wine list compared to its New Smyrna Beach location, which has been open since 2007. The Maitland location will also have lunch and dinner menus, unlike New Smyrnas SoNapa, which only features a dinner menu.Restaurant for wine loversFlat breads, soups, salads, fresh fish, hand-cut steak grilled over an open flame, fresh herbs, fried fruits, artesian cheeses and foods centered around olives and grapes will make up the menu. Having a passion for wine and a love of the Sonoma County region, Barringer, previously a managing partner with Outback Steakhouse and Bonefish Grill for 14 years, said the restaurant is for the economical consumer, but features luxury items as well. Diners can spend up to about $200 for a bottle of wine, he said, but we feature specials like choosing two items for $9. Theres something for everyone. Verl Emrick, executive director of the Maitland Community Redevelopment Agency, said he welcomes the restaurant and believes it will only enhance the city. It takes up an empty spot, he said. It offers us another place for the citizens to go, and its another plus for residents to go downtown.

The Florida Constitution and the Orange County Charter require the Orange County Board of County Commissioners (OCBure the political boundaries for its Commission districts at least once every 10 years to comport with the latest 2010 Federal Centricting is to keep all districts as equal in population as possible to ensure equal voter representation. Orange County is comprised of six districts. Each district is represented by one of the six Orange County commissioners. The process of reviewing the present districts to see if there is ing on right now. Maitland and Winter Park have been in District 5 for many years. As neighbors, our two cities have had very close ties for many years, working together and sharing many things in common such as lakes, transportation, history and culture. We also have many interlocal agreements. It is very important that we stay together in the same district to continue our mutually cy and ease of coordination that has been so successful over the past years. For our cities to be in separate districts or to have one or both cities split between two districts would be very counter productive for our working relationship with Orange County in the future. The Redistricting Advisory Committee (RAC) was appointed in March of this year by the OCBCC. This 15-member committees job is to do research, hold public hearings and advise the OCBCC on possible redistricting solutions. RAC is presently holding public hearings to take input on how to possibly adjust recommendations are due to be presented to the OCBCC no later than Oct. 1, 2011. However, the public hearings presently being held around the county are to end in the middle of August. ing will be made by the OCBCC by the end of this year. Districts 1 and 4 have gained in population and have to reduce the size of their districts to come into compliance with the populace of the other districts. Because of this, some of the proposals that are presently being considered are either separating Maitland and Winter Park into separate districts or splitting one or both cities into two districts. Is it fair that the makeup because of the over population of other districts? Shouldnt the overpopulated districts be repopulous issues? The last three redistricting public hearings are being held on Aug. 3, 10 and 17. The locations and directions are on the It is crucial that we let the RAC as well as our OCBCC know how important it is for our two cities to stay together in the same district. Ted Edwards, our present county commissioner, is very much in favor of Maitland and Winter Park staying together in District 5. He spoke in support of it at the most recent redistricting public hearing held in Maitland on July 29. As residents of Maitland and Winter Park, I strongly urge you to attend as many of the remaining redistricting public hearings as possible. Your voice is very important, as I have seen changes in some of the advisory committee members opinions during the previous redistricting public hearings based on input from the public. If we dont act now, the next 10 years may be much more ange County and continue to move our cities forward.

On a warm afternoon in Los Angeles, a police car crawls to a stop in front of the Wells Fargo, siren silent. Two officers emerge and walk inside the big double doors. The man they are looking for, David, is known to deal drugs in the surrounding community, but when officers lock the cuffs on the 27-year-old, hesitating briefly above the solid gold Rolex around the left wrist, its not just the drugs that gives the officers a smug sense of selfassurance. David is one of many young, arrogant men who took up the mortgage broker industry in the early 2000s. Hes young, holds only a high school education and drives a Lexus. His pay range is $30-$40,000 per month. And because David receives no salary or benefits, he is ruthless to become the highest-paid broker in the building. As police escort David out the doors on a minor drug charge, a 24-year-old James Repici watches. Repici, a banker at the Wells Fargo for more than a year, has always distrusted the flashy youth from a small outside brokerage. Repici gradusity with a degree in finance, yet earns a yearly salary of $35,000 in one of the most affluent neighborhoods in America. He got out of jail in three to four months, Repici said. Guess where he was working? The same place, the same office. They took him back, because that kid made money. This scene would be the inspiration for Repici nearly 10 years later, when he returned to Florida and, looking for work, he would make a leap of faith to achieve a silver screen dream. Life on lmRepici makes his living in finances. He has worked in banks, a mortgage brokerage in Maitland and is currently an auditor in the entertainment industry, but it is his artistic side that drives his daily life. Since high school, he harbored dreams of becoming a writer and has written screenplays for more than 10 years, eventually becoming a finalist in the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards Competition. His feature-length film Subprime is his first foray into the world of film. Subprime chronicles the working life of a young mortgage broker during the boom and bust years of the subprime mortgage crisis. Davids character, portrayed by Ken Baranda, is based on the real-life Los Angeles broker, while others are more reminiscent of coworkers at the Maitland office. Filmed almost entirely in Winter Park, with a cast of mostly Orlando actors including a premiere performance by Playboys Miss July 2010, Shanna McLaughlin, the story reveals the back-story behind those bad mortgage loans many Americans were so eager to sign. Its a pretty ominous, foreboding tale a very cautionary tale for young people, said Matt Lynn, post-production editor for Subprime. Lynn, an instructor at Full the films message from situations he witnessed growing up in Tampa, when several classmates from high school joined a small mortgage brokerage there. It was all the kids that you knew were criminals, real jerks in high school, Lynn said, and you knew they were up to no good. You see dollar signs, you dont really see ethics at that age. For Repici, the movie is the culmination of more than two years of effort and risk. Out of work in Florida at the head of the recession might seem like an odd time to launch a movie, but Repici said he felt it was time to tell the story he had held all those years. The stars are never right, he said. But there comes a time when you say, Im either going to make this thing or I wont. For two months, Repici lived and worked off of the $10,000 budget produced for Subprime. The project remained in postproduction for nearly two years, due to the conflicting schedules of the films editors, who worked on the film into the early morning hours after their regular jobs. Daniel Ruth, post-production audio editor for Subprime, said the film is engaging for him because of the critical insights it gave him into the mortgage industry. Ruth bought a home in 2008, understanding that the house was appraised at more than its actual value but believing in his broker that he would be taken care of later. That didnt happen. Ruth said a lot of the dialogue and situations in the movie reminded him of the reallife issues he faced.Festival boundSubprime is making the rounds of the independent film festivals. The movie premiered in San Antonio to positive reviews and next makes its way to the Central Florida Film Festival, Sept. 2-5. Repici is currently looking for investors in his next film, Dutch Book, a gambling term for a sure bet. The script recently became a quarter finalist in the Scriptapalooza screenwriting competition. At the end of the day, I want to make movies that I want to watch, he said. If I like it, then I know Im doing something good.

The owners and employees at the Maitland Prescription Shoppe look forward to seeing you at our new location145 S. Orlando Ave. Maitland, FL 32751407-539-1110 17-92 Horatio AveJeremiahsMaitland Prescription Shoppe When Rachel Brignoni was 17, she had what most girls want: good grades, a spot on the cheerleading squad and the homecoming princess title. And then she got pregnant. She was lost. The people in her small town turned their backs on her. As they looked at her young face and then down at her pregnant belly, scowls crossed their faces. Judging stares followed her everywhere. Society had deemed her a failure, told her that her life was ruined. But, always stubborn, Brignoni knew she could change what others thought was a disappointment into a positive experience. I had a son early, but that doesnt mean Im a failure, she said. Overcoming statisticsIt took her 11 years, but Brignoni, who now lives in Winter Park, got her bachelors degree in sociology from the University of Central Florida and is a human resources executive for a Fortune 100 company. I just didnt want to be a statistic, she said. What shes accomplished is almost impossible considering the statistics. Only 40 percent of teen mothers graduate high school, less than 2 percent go to college and more than 75 percent are on welfare within five years of their childs birth, according to March of Dimes. But after conquering the statistics, Brignoni knew she needed to help others. Book of hopeIn 2007, she wrote a book to give pregnant teens hope, provide them with exercises to find selfawareness and to create goals. A year later, she created the Brignoni Foundation for Pregnant Teens so that she could donate her book to those teens who didnt have the resources to buy one. She spends her spare time traveling to speak to pregnant and at-risk teens about her own journey and success, offering them hope for their own futures. Rachel had the ability to look at a hardship and turn it into probably the greatest gift in her life, said Rachel Allen, of the foundations board of directors and Brignonis friend of 17 years.Melting tough heartsAlthough shes been through it all, Brignoni said at first its tough to get to the soft side of the girls she talks to. On first impression, its hard for them to imagine she could relate to anything theyve experienced shes a little older than them, accomplished, polished, pretty and smart. She gets skeptical looks and their arms are protectively crossed. Halfway through her story those barriers melt away, and the teens feel a connection, she said. At the end, Brignoni gets gracious thank yous, hugs and their children to hold. Ive lived it, she said. Shes been given dirty looks at restaurants when she couldnt quiet her crying son, spent time on welfare and was humiliated when she heard impatient huffs at the grocery store line as she used her food stamps. At one time, she was raising her son Kyle alone, going to school and working five jobs. I had been through a war zone by the time I was 21, she said. But her triumphs are great for the teens she talks to, who need to see good examples of success in career, family and life, said Lisa Murano, director of education and advocacy for Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando, where Brignoni has spoken twice. Ruth Patrick, president of the BETA Center in Orlando, which helps families and teen moms, agreed. Its not about the bad they have to recognize what happened to them and realize that their youth offers a lifetime of possibility ahead, Patrick said. Foundation inspirationAnd thats what Brignoni focuses on. Now a wife and mother of four, she was inspired to start the Foundation when she was pregnant with her second child, 11 years later. Her experience was drastically different, she said. People were welcoming they touched her stomach and congratulated her. Strangers looked at her warmly. It was hard for her to think back to her first pregnancy, when she needed the most support and was abandoned. I was treated so differently; it was painful looking back, she said. Now when she talks to the teens, she hopes that she can make them understand that while it may be a hard life, its their choice to be positive, to not let others make them feel like a failure and to create a future worth being proud of. She lived that message, and she can demonstrate through her life that you have a choice, Allen said. Its a message for everybody.PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE OBSERVERWinter Park resident Rachel Brignoni displays her book Hope Joy (and a Few Little Thoughts), which she sells and donates through her nonpro t organization.BRITTNI JOHNSON Observer Staff Learn moreFor more information about the Brignoni Foundation, ways to donate, to request success toolkits or ask Rachel Brignoni to visit your organization, visit BrignoniFoundation.org.

Thursday, Aug. 4, 2011 Page 10 Winter Park / Maitland Observer Small steps can add up to big savings when it comes to reducing energy consumption and ultimately your utility bill. This year, OUC partnered with the city of Orlando to complete the Green Neighborhood Program, which provided 1,138 homeowners in some of Orlandos least energy-efficient neighborhoods with free utility upgrades and repairs. The program, which targeted one neighborhood in each of the citys six commission districts, was funded by the city of Orlando, which received a federal Energy Efficiency Block Grant (EECBG) of $500,000 in stimulus funds, as well as $257,000 from OUC. In total, more than 2 million annual kilowatts per hour were saved. On average, this equals about $230 in annual energy savings for each customer who participated. But you didnt need to be a part of the program to start saving. OUC provides rebates and resources to homeowners so they can make home improvements and upgrades that result in reduced energy consumption. The following are some simple tips to remember this summer to help lower your utility bill: Air conditioning accounts for more than 50 percent of your electric bill. When you leave your house, turn it up a few notches to around 82. Installing ceiling fans throughout your home also will help you stay cool and comfortable. Just make sure you turn off fans in unoccupied areas. energy hog is hot water, so try to use the cold or warm setting on your washing machine. Lowering your water heater to around 125 degrees is adequate (most water heaters come pre-set at 140 degrees). If youre leaving for a couple of days, turn off your water heater. Otherwise, it will continue to use energy keeping the water heated even when youre not there. strain on appliances and can increase operating costs. So change or clean air conditioning filters monthly. In addition, your refrigerator accounts for about five to eight percent of your power costs, so clean the coils a couple times a year and keep the temperature at 37 degrees and zero for the freezer. Also, dont forget to dust light bulbs to improve brightness and switch to compact fluorescents, which consume about 75 percent less energy than standard incandescent bulbs and last up to 10 times longer. handler and ductwork for leaks, and weatherstrip or caulk around windows, doors, plumbing and other gaps so that energy wont escape. These quick fixes are easy to do and inexpensive but make a substantial difference. usage in your home, so low-flow toilets are worth the investment. Low-flow showerheads are also a good idea, and you dont have to sacrifice water pressure. Youll save about 2.5 gallons per minute. after 4 p.m. to minimize evaporation, and follow your water management districts guidelines for what days youre allowed to irrigate. You can save water and keep a healthy lawn. In addition, Energy Star-certified appliances can help lower monthly power bills. If youre deciding what appliance is worth investing in first, I recommend a refrigerator, because most new refrigerators are 30-50 percent more efficient than five to 10-year-old models. Remember, small conservation efforts can add up to big savings.

Opinion/Editorial Letters to the Editor The War, the Depression and the economic redlineJepson ignored factsAs someone whos worked to protect the Everglades, restore the Rose Bay Estuary and acquire a natural buffer to protect the St. Johns River, I want to respond to the complete mischaracterization by Mr. Jepson (Et tu, John Mica? published July 21) of the Clean Water Cooperative Federalism Act. Anyone who portrays this legislation as an effort to gut the Clean Water Act ignores facts. EPA was not created to be the sole regulator of our nations water quality. The Clean Water Act of 1972 established a cooperative relationship between EPA and the states in carrying out this important function, and this relationship under the act has been responsible for years of improvements in water quality nationwide. This bill restores this long-standing partnership between EPA and the states in protecting the environment with common sense regulation and does not diminish existing or previously agreed upon EPA standards. In recent years, EPA and the state of Florida agreed upon a state plan for developing nutrient standards for water. But after EPA was challenged in court, the agency submitted to this extortionate lawsuit and reversed its previous position. Floridas ongoing development of already approved by EPA, was thrown out by an intimidated federal agency in indefensible set of standards. These cookie cutter standards do not take into account many factors unique to Floridas or any states waters. EPA is evolving into a mindless regulatory agency that undermines the states authority. This type of EPA overreach simply results in unobtainable standards and an unpredictable, costly regulatory process. Whats worse is this EPA reversal will now burden local utilities, consumers and the fragile economy, I strongly advocate protecting our environment and maintaining high water-quality standards. However, EPAs increasingly dictatorial approach was not intended by the Clean Water Act, and this kind of overreach is what is gutting the Act. It also pits our states, communities and consumers against an agency that has an important mission. The reasoned legislation I have sponsored was crafted by Republicans and Democrats at the request of state and local governments and community leaders who want to protect our waters with responsible regulation. It is not a free pass to pollute our waters. We must continue to improve the quality of Floridas waters and preserve our natural resources, but not by ignoring sound science and the states important role.John L. Mica (FL-07) Chairman Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure U.S. House of RepresentativesHappy at Regents ParkIts beautiful here. Ive been here for quite a while. Everybodys friendly.

I have a lot of friends here.Marie Lakata Resident at Regents Park of Winter ParkAdvocacy in a different forumI want to dedicate this column to a subject very dear to our hearts or should I say our stomachs food. On Oct. 24, Americans from all walks of life will come together to push for healthy, Please see LETTERS Next Page Dont let summer heat up your utility billsWeve been in this position before: On the verge of economic ruin. For our oldest generation of pre-boomers, those hungry days and cold nights of the Great Depression left scars for a lifetime and forged what became The Greatest Generation. It was a generation that built us into a manufacturing empire. It was a generation that pulled us out of the worst economic collapse in our nations history. It was a generation that won World War II. It was a generation that banded together with a sense of unity and shouldered those enormous burdens. More than half a century after that generation defined what it is that makes our country great, we have our own fiscal quagmire, we have two wars of our own, but something big is missing: the sense of unity and collective destiny that lifted us all. Enter the scene on the U.S. Senate floor at noon on Aug. 2 as senators pushed for a 74-26 vote that many openly lamented: raising the debt ceiling to prevent a catastrophic credit default but at the cost of massive cuts in spending that would see thousands of jobs lost. A number thats nearly invisible in its effect upon the daily lives of Americans was used as a bargaining chip to give a pink slip to thousands of government workers. The rationale: Surely theyll soon rejoin the work force in the private sector. But that hasnt been happening. The average length of time a laid-off worker remains unemployed: 40 weeks an all-time high. In the depths of the worst economic recession since the Depression, the jobs just arent there. And that comes despite the fact that no taxes were raised during the Legislatures compromise to help cut the deficit. The richest of the rich would pay no more than the current 80-year low in taxes they currently enjoy. Yet, strangely, theyre not creating any jobs to offset the slashing of government payrolls. The richest of the rich have contributed nothing to this, Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said. The burden is on the middle class. Its really unfair for billionaires and multimillionaires not to be contributing to this, but theyre not. During the Depression, we treated things differently. The deficit, in terms of priorities, took a back seat to getting America back to work. Despite President Franklin Delano Roosevelts cries for fiscal conservancy during his campaign in 1932, he would create some of the most effective job stimulus programs in our nations history. And despite a massive jump in taxes to the wealthiest Americans, the jobs grew anyway. We went back to work, and for the next four years following the first dip of the Depression in 1933, Americas economy steadily grew, despite a deficit. And even with the high taxes, the rich stayed rich. Then came the mistake, in which Roosevelt tightened the fiscal reins, slashed the government budget and watched the economy collapse into the second dip of the Depression the following year. Supply-side economics, the champion of low budgets, won out, and working Americans lost. Despite having the benefit of numerous historic examples of what works and what doesnt during the current debt ceiling debate, fiscal conservatives, who drove the debate on compromises with the bill, didnt even bother addressing the idea of raising taxes on the super rich instead of cutting payrolls. Thats because a concerted effort to freeze the debt ceiling at an entirely arbitrary limit isnt a brave move by Congress to finally rein in an out-of-control budget; its a political hostage negotiation that has one outcome: Americans will lose their jobs. Meanwhile, the elephant in the room the richest 1 percent of Americans who already pay absurdly low taxes once again stood looking over the shoulder of everybody who voted yes, and looked the other way while even more Americans marched toward the unemployment office.CAMERON SAULSBY Guest Writer

Thursday, Aug. 4, 2011 Page 11 Winter Park / Maitland Observer In the Strasbourg Opera House, the prima donna and I had just sung the roles of Dido and Aeneas in Hector Berlioz epic opera Les Troyens (The Trojans). Afterwards we strolled over to La Marne restaurant, where the headwaiter gave us a private mirrored dining room. Regine sat down on the red leather bench facing me across the table. I looked in the mirror and saw behind me a small man standing in the doorway. He was dressed in black and wore an old-fashioned frock coat. His tie was black string, and his white hair, streaked with gray, was a wind-blown mane. His aged wife stood behind him. I recognized him and quickly got to my feet. As I turned around he asked, Sprechen Sie Deutsch? I nodded and said, Jawohl. In German he said, My wife and I wanted to tell you both how much we enjoyed your singing. Berlioz has always been a special favorite of mine. One doesnt get a chance to hear Les Troyens often, even in France. I invited them to join us and helped them both into their chairs. We are enjoying everything we can on this trip from Africa, he said. Who knows if well ever be back here again? I said, I recently reread your The Quest for the Historical Jesus in German no mean feat for an American! He smiled, That book has gotten me in lots of trouble. I wrote it about 1910, but people think I wrote it yesterday as a recantation of life-long beliefs. I was very young when I wrote it. I am surprised anew at rereading your book, I said, that so much of what is today accepted as fundamentalist dogma seems apocryphal in your view. My so-called view was the result of a lot of study and painstaking research when I was here in Strasbourg at the University many years ago. The music of Johann Sebastian Bach, he continued, has always been truth to me. Nothing needs to be added or taken away to help it say what it means. I wanted to do the same for the art of Jesus Christ, to let Him speak historically for himself, without any help from 2,000 years of editors and embellishers. The old man went on, When I was young, I believed that Jesus was laid in a manger in Bethlehem. This was important to me. Later in my studies, I learned that the word for manger and the word for crib are the same word in the original. A mistranslation seemed a worrisome possibility. To me, Jesus had to be laid in a manger the story is charming and it fits His humility. Today, I am interested in the baby, not whether he lay in a manger or a crib. I am interested in what He said and what He means to us. Before leaving, the old man turned to us and said, Tomorrow morning at 10, at the University, I am playing a Bach recital on a baroque organ I built in 1912. I hope you can come. Next morning I went to the Bach organ recital. The organist, our elderly companion of the evening before, Nobel Prize-winner Dr. Albert Schweitzer, played magnificently, of course. Its become a clich but bears repeating: Dont show up at gun fight with a knife. This appears to be how the Democrats approach governance with their Republican counterparts. Its a metaphor, folks. I could have conducted better negotiations with the Republicans than President Obama. I dont say this lightly because politics is a knuckle ball, grab their scrotum, take no prisoners process. But if the first chip you toss on the negotiating table is the store, whats left to dicker over? I kept waiting for the Democrats end game to become readily apparent. Alas, I am still attempting to understand how the language of the debate became so focused on Republican priorities. Oh, it is argued that is because of the 2010 elections and the Republicans becoming the majority party in the U.S. House of Representatives. So what? Its as if all the insightful, politically astute, getyour-game-on Democratic strategists are on vacation. Who exactly is advising Obama? Hello! Time to send in the ringers. If I had the 2008 election to do over knowing what I know today Id support Hillary Clinton. Granted, she badly bungled her Iraq war vote (no inconsequential issue for me), but Id much rather that Clinton be negotiating our domestic policy. Facts, for many, are irrelevant today, from how we got into debt to whether economic history supports cutting government spending during such an acute recession to whether a return to Clintonlevel tax rates on higher income Americans would crush whatever recovery we are experiencing. I have my understanding of these fiscal considerations, but many Americans think otherwise, as is their right. That said, box of rocks comes immediately to mind, as in, they must be dumber than a box of rocks. It is argued that Obama thinks that liberal Democrats have no choice but to support him in 2012. For Obama to be re-elected, he must secure sufficient independent voters, and that fact alone explains his actions and policies. For the life of me, what has Obama achieved that particularly appeals to independents? Anyone with half a brain knows that Obama was handed a horrible economy and two wars. Add drought and his problems are nearly biblical in proportion. It is hard to make lemonade out of any of that. But Obamas alleged card-up-hissleeve was his ability to be the great communicator. Im a scorekeeper, and Obama has been a dismal failure in this regard. I want the debate clearly framed by putting all the cards on the table as to what exactly America confronts. Frame the message and drive it home, day in, day out. According to Republicans, they and Democrats are no longer in the same boat. This Gilded Age truism needs to be tattooed on Republican foreheads. I knew we were had when Obama pursued no malefactors from the 2008 economic meltdown. Too many of Americas premier corporations, banks and financial institutions unequivocally and criminally harmed the nation. Yet, no one swings from the yardarm. No accountability.

Food Day is sponsored by the Center for Science in the Public Interest group that has led successful nutrition and safer food since 1971. While I am an advocate for the banking industry, my advocacy skills have fallen onto my youngest daughter, Carolina. She is a Food Day intern for CSPI, which is located in Washington, D.C. Carolina is also the U.S. ambassador for Slow Food Rome. I have learned so much from her about food safety and the processing of food in our country. No need to say that I am very proud of the accomplishments of both my daughters. My oldest, Cristina, earned her MBA from Rollins College and lives and works in Orlando. Food is becoming a hot issue for all Americans. It is an issue that transcends political parties. It truly is a nonpartisan or bipartisan issue. We all want to know what we are putting in our bodies and how it is produced and processed. We want food information at our was used to raise or grow that I dont think a few years ago we asked these questions or, quite frankly, cared enough to even ask.

Have you ever asked yourself why is it we have all these diseases today? Is it related to all the junk food we are eating? Have you ever read the ingredients of many of the processed foods we eat? Even with my law degree, I do not understand those labels because they are full of obscure ingredients. Are those ingredients good for us? Eaten often, will they compromise our health? Some of the campaigns goals include: disease by promoting healthy foods. The American diet is too low in fruits, vegetables and whole grains and too high in fatty meat, soft drinks, and salty packaged and restaurant foods contributing to hundreds of thousands of premature deaths each year due to heart disease, diabetes, stroke and cancer. ing.

Thursday, Aug. 4, 2011 Page 13 Winter Park / Maitland Observer THRIVE @ 55 AND BEYOND! Although Alvaro Ramirez is originally from Nicaragua, he does not speak Spanish or English. He communicates through sign language. The 40-year-old man has been tackling challenges since he lost his hearing at the age of 2. His biggest challenge finding a job. I feel like deaf people suffer a lot of discrimination, Ramirez said. And its been really difficult for me to find a job. Ramirez is getting help from a center that assists many Central Floridians in living independently. The Center for Independent Living, founded in 1976, provides everything from home ramps, educational seminars, job placement services, sign language interpreters, mental health counseling and housing resources. Our focus is issues that people with disabilities face and we are the only provider in our area that provides comprehensive services for people who are deaf, Executive Director Liz Howe said. The center runs on federal, state and local funds, and its main goal is to provide education and aid-based initiatives that help integrate the disabled into the workplace and society, so they can get back on the road to independence. Ive enjoyed working with them and have been very impressed with them, Ramirez said.Unemployment risesUnemployment continues to plague Americans the national unemployment rate climbed to 9.1 percent in May, while Floridas rate was 10.6 percent. The unemployment rate for the disabled has continuously remained even higher, hitting 15.6 percent in May. Theres still a stigma out there for employers, in terms of hiring people with disabilities and having to accommodate the expenses of their disability, Howe said. The Center for Independent Living is helping those in need break down the stereotypes associated with disabilities. Diversity is not only race, color, sex or religion, diversity is also disability, CIL developmental director Karen Bacharach said. And disability is the number one minority in our country. Ramirez said he believes theres still a very separate world between the hearing and the hearing-impaired, and equality is still a concept that needs a lot of attention. Theres a real lack of power between deaf people and hearing people sometimes, Ramirez said. Its still an unequal world and CILs whole goal is equality and helping people believe in themselves.Celebrating a milestoneEquality continues to be the Center for Independent Livings goal, especially after the 21st anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The center, as well as so many other Central Floridians living with disabilities, celebrated that milestone on July 26. Bacharach said that CILs biggest challenge is awareness, and celebrating this event, as well as holding other events in the community, will help make people aware of CILs mission to give everyone the equal opportunity they deserve. The more people that know what we do, the more support well get from the general community because we want to make sure that those living with disabilities have every advantage and opportunity to live their lives as fully as they choose, Bacharach said. If they want to do something, theres an opportunity to do it; were all about making it possible.

Its a craze hitting households across the United States couponing helps families save on their own grocery bill, but its also helping needy families. Career couponers share their tricks and tips through TV shows such as TLCs Extreme Couponing, websites such as Smart Couponing.com and blogs such as Money Saving Mom. One of them is Mary Edwards, who runs the website CouponersUnited.com. She teaches 40 free classes a month on how to be a couponer with one goal that her students give back to the community. She taught a class at the Epiphany Lutheran Church in Oviedo on July 9. Just because you dont need it, you can help or bless another family, Edwards said.Giving backEdwards said her main purpose of her classes is to encourage people to donate to the needy by donating their freebie or extra items to local food banks, women shelters and religious institutions. I teach the classes to help you lower your grocery bill, but also to learn how to give back to the community. We hope you give back to the food pantry or shelters in your area, Edwards said. Forty students listened attentively during her lecture, nodding their heads, taking notes and repeating wow, and I need to do that. Church board member and two-year couponer Cara Roesner said she loves the Of course with the way the economy is, any way to save money seems welcomed, she said. I have a small budget give more to the community. Seminole County has a really strong need for food, especially for children. Using coupons, I am able to donate double to triple what I was doing as far as food product. Some are starting young. Roesners 7-year-old son, Thomas, added, It helps you save money. You buy it with coupons or if its on sale. Always.Deals and steals stores, newspapers and print them off the Internet and then organize them in a coupon binder or in hanging folders. She of items must be gathered in advance to ensure adequate shopping preparation. Coupon terminology includes stacking, which describes the practice of combining manufacturer coupons and store coupons. This is allowed at supermarkets and drug stores. Edwards said she primary encourages her students to shop and coupon at Publix. They are more coupon-friendly and customer-friendly, she said. The coupon company reimburses each of these stores, she said, so Publix doesnt mind customers using coupons. By stacking coupons, you may just end up walking out of the store with extra items at no cost, she said.Big savingsSisters Tara and Meera Harry say they are avid fans of the TV show Extreme Couponing. Tara Harry became an active couyounger sister. She would make me cut through the Sunday paper and match it up to sales and we try to work together as a team, she said. Tara said she noticed she was saving as much as 50 percent. I wont go shopping unless theres a coupon or its on sale, and I try not to pay normal price. Meera, whos been couponing for about a year, agreed. I told her, Youre not going there unless we cut these coupons, and in the end, you do save money, so why not? Why pay full price if you know you dont have to?

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.

King Features Weekly ServiceMarch 2-8, 2009 By Samantha MazzottaReusing Wood for FlooringQ:Ive been watching some home-improvement shows on television lately that advocate greenbuilding techniques, including reusing wood from other structures for a homes wood flooring,rather than buying new. 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.

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.

King Features Weekly ServiceMarch 2-8, 2009 Exercise isnt enoughNot all bene ts are widely knownMany of us exercise for an hour a few times a week and assume that takes care of all our heart needs. Not so, apparently, according to a longterm study. Researchers wanted to know the correlation, if any, between the hours spent watching television and heart disease. A second part of the study looked at the correlation between those TV hours and higher Body Mass Index (BMI) and high cholesterol. What they found is enough to make you toss away the television remote control: Sitting too long is tied to risk of obesity, cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Its the equivalent of smoking cigarettes in a lot of ways. And even if we get regular exercise, it doesnt counteract the affects of sitting for long hours. Cardiologist Dr. David Cohen described prolonged sitting as the body going into storage mode. The longer you sit, the worse the risks. For those still working at desk jobs, he suggested delivering messages down the hall instead of sending email, and in general, moving as much as possible. Some of Cohens suggestions also can apply to those of us who dont work outside the home: standing up when talking on the telephone, taking stairs when possible, going for walks. Being up and about is good for weight bearing on long bones and building up bone strength. Moving, even just walking, increases blood flow to limbs, brain and heart. As a start, Im still in favor of taking the batteries out of the television remote control. There would be no idle channel surfing, skimming for programs to watch. Instead wed consult the show listings, get up, walk across the room and change the channel by hand. And who knows, while were up, we might even decide not to sit back down again.

In a nod of acknowledgment to the state of the economy, the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act has extended the length of protection time for foreclosures. You now have nine months from the end of military service, and during that time, your property cannot be foreclosed. Its not automatic, however you have to ask for it. Also, your loan must have originated before active service to qualify. If you have a VA loan on your home, call 877-827-3702 to talk to a specialist, or go to www. benefits.va.gov and click on Home Loans. If you have a nonVA loan and its a subprime, you can refinance it as a VA loan at 100 percent of the propertys value. Heres a benefit thats not widely talked about: If you are permanently and totally disabled, your student loans can be discharged under certain circumstances. If you are not employable due to a serviceconnected disability, you dont need a doctor to say so. If the disability is not service-connected but meets the definition of disability, youll need a doctor to fill out part of the form. Go to www.ed.gov and put this in the search box: Discharge Application Total and Permanent Disability. Youll find a form by that name. Or call the Disability Discharge Loan Servicing Center at 1-888-3037818. Its possible that you also could be eligible for a refund of payments made since the date of disability. To make sure you know all your benefits, go to the Department of Veterans Affairs site at www.va.gov and search for Federal Benefits for Veterans, Dependents and Survivors. Youll find links to all your benefit topics, including prosthetics, mental health, life insurance, federal jobs, health care and more.
