Thursday, Dec. 22, 2011 50+ tax wpmobserver.com Subscribe now! Visit wpmobserver.com Its almost a clich to say that the food in a real Italian restaurant is good because the recipes go back to some ones grand mother from the Old Country. The great news about Tollas Italian Deli & Caf in Winter Parks Hannibal Square is that the food is wonderful and the recipes have indeed been handed down to Gary Tolla from his grandmother. Bless her and him and the restaurant. Oh, and thats Sinatra singing in the background. Who else? If you havent yet experi enced the wonderfully olive oil-rich tastes from Tollas, it may be thanks to its location at 240 N. Pennsylvania Ave., about six blocks north of Fairbanks Avenue and west of fashionable Park Avenue. But the neighbor hood-friendly atmosphere, the food and the lower-than-Park There are regular-height tables and high-tops inside the restaurant, but the fun place to Winter Park and Maitland have hopped aboard the food truck craze and are now paving the way for the use of the mobile eateries in the future. The Central Florida-areas ing lot dedicated to housing food trucks for breakfast, lunch and opened between Winter Park and Maitland. With local schools and churches using food trucks for fundraising and food truck meetups on the grow, the local food truck trend doesnt look to be slowing down anytime soon. Just since March, when I started following local food trucks, weve seen the number of trucks in the Central Florida/Or over 50, said Jay Brabbs, owner of the Silver Bistro food truck. Its something thats changing constantly in both food and the number and types of events. All this talk and growth has local property owners, cities and schools looking to capitalize on the food fun on wheels. Setting up shop ago a large, empty, gravel park ing lot has come alive in recent weeks with the presence of food trucks. Ravaudage developer Dan Bellows, the owner of the lot near the intersection of Orlando Avenue and Lee Road in Winter Park, said he saw a need, a want and a service he could provide and went with it, now using the permanent parking spot for food trucks. When seniors are looking for a little Hanukkah in their lives, the Jewish Pavilion fullls this role in spades.

Trucks can rent out spaces in the lot on a month-to-month basis and use the space to set up shop for customers any day or time during the week. Bellows said he is currently at full capacity, with all 21 available spots rented out We didnt know what to ex pect, said Brabbs, who rents a spot at the stop. It was kind of slow to start off, but I think through word of mouth its got the potential to keep growing. Thursday nights are the main event at the Winter Park Food Truck Stop, when all the trucks of the event boasted live music acts on the lots two new raised stages and muscle cars brought out for show from local collectors. Bellows also owns Tom & Jerrys Lounge, which shares the food truck lot and serves no food, only alcohol. He said the location pro vides the added bonus of a fully stocked bar available for those visiting the food trucks. Every single thing the food trucks or their customers could need is right here, Bellows said. Brabbs said he and the other trucks use social media to send out blasts to their followers letting them know their weekly sched ules. He said there are 10 trucks currently meeting for lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Were hoping we can make this into a destination for people looking for a different type of place to go for lunch, he said. Events stay strong Already reaching destination status in the area, the Food Truck Caf at Lake Lily and the Eat More Produce Food Truck Pod have continued to garner steady business. In October, the Maitland Lake Lily Event was forced to switch from Tuesday to Wednesday commodating parking for all the people coming out, said Mari Smith, special events coordinator for the city. Troy Gage, co-owner of Eat More Produce in Winter Park, which hosts a food truck pod Thursday of the month, said through their event, despite the Winter Park Food Truck Stop holding events on the same night. He said he believes holding the food truck events weekly instead of every day works better for his idea of what food trucks are for. Thats the beauty of those food trucks, that they can move around and are at one place one night and another place another night, they can kind of build their niche, he said. But if theyre always in the same spot, who knows, right? Its not like people are going to eat at food trucks every single night. Food for a cause Jamie Weiss, curriculum com pliance director at Audubon Park Elementary School, saw food also as a great avenue for fund raising. On Saturday, Jan. 7., from 4 p.m.-8 p.m., the school will host its raise money for the school. Each truck will pay an upfront fee to participate, Weiss said, and will donate a percentage of its school. The idea, he said, came previously in bringing out the Yum Yum Cupcake Truck to its open house. We decided it would be a re ally unique, creative way to have a fundraiser, Weiss said. The school has 10 trucks signed up to participate in the event. making a donation, co-owner of the Yum Yum Cupcake Truck Joey Conicella said. Youre buying food, which is in turn supporting a local business and then in re turn, the business is giving back a percentage of their sales to public education. Conicella said quite a few other schools and local churches have contacted him to host simi lar events. Theres really no other thing thats going on in Orlando right now thats bringing out this many people in the community, so to harness that popularity and then do something good with it is kind of a fun idea, he said.

Nelore Steakhouse 115 E. Lyman Ave. Winter Park, FL 32789(407) 645-1112www.neloresteakhouse.comAuthentic Brazilian Steak House eat is on the outdoor patio. I started, ap propriately, with a Caesar salad. What could be more Italian than that? The greens were dressed in Tollas homemade dressing while fect counter-point to the greens. I tried three of Tollas signature entrees winner. As in traditional Italian cooking, the food is well prepared and not rushed. The one place where Gary Tollas background in large restaurants (Marriotts for example) shows up is in the plating. Each entre was presented simply but effectively, garnished with grated parmesan and parsley sprinkled around the rim of the plate. A nice touch. The sauted chicken picatta was slicewith-a-fork tender and served in a perfect blend of white wine, butter and capers. Im not sure why those little capers make such a difference, but they do, and Tolla uses them generously. Next I tried the shrimp aioli, which is served with a luxurious combina tion of penne pasta that has been sauted in olive oil garlic, artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes. Im told that olive oil is the secret that allows Italians to eat pasta every day and still remain thin. True or not, I could happily consume any and all of the delicate sauces from Tollas kitchen every day and not care about the olive oils effect on my waistline. Finally, I tasted the stuffed chicken Tolla, and once again, the chicken was wonder fully tender and wrapped around the most incredible mix of feta cheese, prosciutto and spinach. This dream-come-true entre was then sauced lightly with tomato marinara. Usually, dear readers, this is the point at which I give you my personal favorite, but the wonderful news is as I go back over each distinctive taste, they are all so good that I honestly do not have a favorite. Therefore, I recommend each one as highly as I recom mend this charming eatery run by a man who knows and loves food.

Page 5 Thursday, Dec. 22, 2011 Winter Park / Maitland Observer Lifestyles For 29 years, Don Saunders, 75, and his real estate agents were the people to see when buying a Win ter Park home. We dominated the Winter Park house market for a number of years, Saunders said. He saw lakefront houses go from $45,000 to more than a $1 million, and he sold blocks and blocks of the Park Avenue resi dents and visitors strut down to day. In its heyday, his company was responsible for more than 40 percent of the home sales in the city. But according to Saunders, it was easy. Its not a hard sales job, he said. Winter Park really sells it self. One glimpse of that beautiful, pic turesque street, its trees, boutique shops and restaurants, and they were convinced. A turn down one of the citys perfect lakefront streets and there they were: Sold. But what Saunders said helped most was that they believed in what they were selling. Each cli ent that came in the door heard the same thing. The best place to live in the world is Winter Park, Florida, Saunders said. What he did, Saunders said, was take advantage of a wonder ful place. He didnt so much put Winter Park on the map as help other people to realize the poten tial it had and facilitate the deals to make it what it is today. I think he recognized the uniqueness of Winter Park and understood that people would want to live here, said David Francetic, who worked for Saun ders for seven years. A mentor He sold his company and role in the Winter Park dream to Cold well Banker in 1997, but those he mentored in the real estate busi ness including Winter Park real estate greats Fannie Hillman and Ann Cross could never forget him. They all showed that in a surprise party held for him this month, one that was attended by almost everyone who had worked for Saunders since 1968. Don was masterful; he was a magician, said Francetic, now at Coldwell Banker. He was giving us a Ph.D. not only in real estate, but in life.

He treated us like his sons. many of his agents, especially the younger ones such as Francetic and Michael OShaughnessy, who loved to push his buttons. There with messages to get to work, and famous two-ring policy. If the phone wasnt answered in two rings, there was trouble. But meeting Saunders, its hard to imagine that the man with the slightest bit of a West Virginian twang and the easiest laugh would do anything like that.

OShaughnessy, who now has his own real estate company, said he grew up working at Saunders agency, and that while Saunders was a no-nonsense boss, he was one who led with compassion. His character was bigger than life, OShaughnessy said. High standards His character is what many at the party mentioned. Ask anyone to describe Saunders, and ethi cal is an instant response. He wouldnt sell anyone a house they couldnt afford or wasnt right for them. If the competition showed hed make sure they got the sale, even if the buyer liked him better. In his mind you couldnt be successful without being ethical, Francetic said. He also valued the connection he made with his clients. From an emotional standpoint, it used to amaze me how much you learn about somebody and how strong a relationship you build, Saun ders said. He knew where they were from, where they wanted to go, and how they thought they were going to get there in a few min utes time. For many Winter Park families, he met their children, watched their families grow and even sold them their next bigger house.

Creativity takes many forms especially during the holidays, and often that creativity works hand-in-hand with a generous spirit to make the holidays better for those in need. Such a story is my holiday message to my readers. It begins with 12-year-old Kayla Bowers, a sixth-grade stu dent at East Ridge Middle School in Clermont, Fla., who entered a national contest called Its Up to Me to Be Drug Free. The contest was created by Informed Families, the nations largest drug prevention cam paign that reaches more than 6,000 schools throughout Florida every year, and 80 million people nationwide. Informed Families dedicated to helping kids grow up safe and drug-free, and is the statewide sponsor of the national Red Ribbon Campaign, helping communities take a stand against drug abuse and its consequences for all Americans. As schools celebrated Red Ribbon Week this year, our new contest helped students take the message home, said IF President Peggy Sapp. By entering the contest and decorating their homes together, families carried the message to their communities. Students throughout Florida entered the contest by decorat ing their homes and mailboxes and then uploading photos to IFs website and Facebook page. Kayla Bowers was voted the winner of the contest, winning a $1,000 prize for East Ridge Middle School and an iPad 2 for her family. But that is only the beginning of the story. East Ridge Middle School sud denly had $1,000 to spend as the Holidays approached. "During one of our leadership meetings, said Assistant Prin cipal William Roberts, we ad dressed the fact that many of our students may not be able to enjoy hardships. Since we were so for tunate to have Kayla win the Red Ribbon Week contest and bring the $1,000 prize to East Ridge Middle School, we decided to use the money to help our students on free lunch, which is nearly half of our student population. The school decided to turn Kaylas prize money into gifts the students could select to give to one of their family members, thus re-enforcing the idea of sharing especially during the holiday season. But $1,000 would only allow the school to purchase gifts valued at $2.50, so the admin istration shared the giving idea with the faculty. nomic times, the idea of Kaylas giving turned into an incredible outpouring of support from school clubs, teachers and com munity members who turned the $1,000 prize money into $3,600. While accepting the contribu tions, the schools bookkeeper and counselors worked tirelessly to identify the students who will participate in what they called the "Spartan Season of Sharing" and shopped to purchase more than 400 gifts. This means that more than 400 students will have the op portunity to select a gift for a family member and take it home to share with their family during this holiday season. The gift to our school from Informed Fami lies comes at a crucial time, and we are very appreciative at East Ridge Middle School, Principal Charles McDaniel said. Kaylas mother, Lisa Bowers, added, This really encouraged parent involvement and created the opportunity to have this dialogue at home about such an important issue for families. Par ents from throughout our neigh borhood were informed, and the message spread everywhere. More than 400 Florida families will have a happier Christmas because of the creativity of one sixth-grade student. Thank you, Kayla.

Page 8 Thursday, Dec. 22, 2011 Winter Park / Maitland Observer Opinions So much of the holidays seem to center around gifts and eating. We focus so much of our energy on shopping and material things that many people leave Thanksgiving dinner with their families to camp outside of stores to get their hands on the latest item for cheap. An exorbitant amount of time during the holidays is also spent in the kitchen, at the grocery stores or crammed into packed restaurants. Theres no argu ing that food is an important part of the holidays; our favorite uncles pasta a la vodka or a friends famous apple cobbler reminds us of this festive time of year and is something we can look forward to year round. But there are tons of fun and free events happening around the com munity this time of year that sometimes get overlooked. To name a few, the Morse Museum holds a free Christmas Eve open house every year, Winter Parks Hanukkah on the Park offers singing performances, live music and dancers in Central Park on Sunday, Dec. 25, and school bands from the teams playing in the Champs Sports Bowl march up Park Avenue on Thursday, Dec. 29, as a prelude to the game. Maybe some people dont realize these events are taking place in their communi ties but, in many cases, peoples to-do lists and calendars are so full during the holi days that they dont leave enough time for some good, old-fashioned fun. The holiday songs we treasure so much this time of year rhyme about carolers, theres not snow here to dash through enjoying the cool, crisp weather. But these things are rarely priorities these days. Getting together with family and friends is very important during the holidays, but its also important to connect with the community. Meeting neighbors, getting out to public parks and experienc individual but our society as a whole. Theres always a way to introduce some of these fun and often cultural events into existing holiday plans. Instead of dinner at a family members house, get everyone together to take in a free, live show or visit a local museum. Take a drive through the neighborhood to look at the holiday lights on the streets and houses. There are tons of ways to spice up your holidays and create new, lasting and enriching traditions. Our Observation Walking to health, cultural awareness into this busy holiday season, would it be a walk to Bethlehem? The Advent Walk to Bethlehem began as an idea of the Health Ministry team of Redeemer Lu theran Church in Winter Park. The teams health cabinet and parish nurse planned the imaginary walk (2,480 miles) as an Advent activity for church members that would increase physical activity, spiritual growth and cultural awareness. to Casablanca. The journey began there. Participants log their real daily miles and the weekly totals are tallied, with prog ress plotted on a large wall map hung in the churchs fellowship area. Weekly goals during the 28-day season of Ad vent include reaching the north African cities of Algiers, Tripoli, Marsa Matrouh Members are very enthusiastic and are encouraging one another to get moving. People are digging their Wii Fit devices out of closets and donning pedometers. As a result, Redeemer easily passed its exercise since it uses nearly 200 muscles and is safe, inexpensive and a fun activity that almost everyone can do. However, 20 minutes of other physical activities are also logged as one mile. Bonus miles are awarded to families that exercise together. Devotional material and printed prayers are provided each week for walkers to use as they exercise. Members are also learn ing about the cultural facts of the coun tries as they walk through them. Advent is the season of spiritual prepa ration marked by an eager longing for the birth of the Jesus Christ. Redeemers walking, combined with prayer and meditation, offers a time of devotion and contemplation that counteracts the busyness of the commercial season and underscores the Advent themes of hope and expectance of the presence of God in Christ. Nearly 70 percent of all Americans are overweight or obese, conditions that contribute to the risk of chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and coronary artery disease. The growing lack of physical activity has helped to make the problem a weighty one. But there is good news. Americans can easily do something to put physical activity back into their days, and it can all start with a walk around the block, or, as in the case of Redeemer Lutheran Church, a walk to Bethlehem. Its an imaginary Denise Schmalzle, Parish nurse Redeemer Lutheran Church T is the season for Hanukkah too Tis the season for Christmas. Every where we look we see red and green. Christmas carols abound on the radio and can be heard in all places that have a speaker system. We count on seeing beautifully decorated Christmas trees and other holiday ornamentation. Wherever we go, people are wishing us a Merry Christmas. Some Jews refer to this time period as the December Dilemma, wondering whether they should expand their Hanuk kah celebrations and add commercialism to the Festival of Lights. Like most Jews, residents in nursing homes are not look ing for equal treatment. All they can hope for is that their holiday is acknowl edged. Just like the elementary school chorus may sing one or two Hanukkah songs during their Holiday performances, the residents are looking for a little Ha nukkah in their lives. in spades. While most large cities have a Jewish home for the aged, Orlando does not. Instead the Jewish Pavilion, an out reach organization, ensures that everyone in long-term care has the opportunity to celebrate our holiday. At Hanukkah time, 40 parties are planned in independent, assisted and skilled nursing facilities and residents of all faiths are invited to celebrate. Everyone has the opportunity to hear the Hanukkah story and all residents get to enjoy potato latkes, Hanukkah cook ies, chocolate gelt, candle lighting and fun songs. For the Jewish resident, it feels like it is his birthday party and others are celebrating with him. Instead of party balloons, the festive table is decorated with colorful blue and yellow paper goods donated by Publix supermarkets. The tables are adorned by blue and white chocolate lollypop centerpieces created by Nancy Layish. Volunteers bring dreidels and gifts for the elderly. Musicians do nate their time to make the parties extra special.

Are you having a hard time paying your bills? Do you owe on a second mortgage or home equity loan/line of credit and want to stop paying it? You have probably seen the billboards and heard the ads on television telling you that life has a restart button. So how do you go about pressing that re start button? Filing bankruptcy may be the key to your fresh start and financial stability. The reality is that bankruptcy is much more com mon than you may think. Fa mous indi viduals that have filed bankruptcy include Abraham Lincoln (twice), Ulyss es S. Grant, Donald Trump, Walt Disney, and most recently, one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey has even taken advantage of the bankruptcy code in order to obtain a fresh start. Most people file either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bank ruptcy. Simply put, bankruptcy entails the filing of a petition with the court listing all of your assets and all of your credi tors in order to discharge your debts. Chapter 7 wipes out credit card debts, medical bills, law suits, as well as foreclosure and repossession deficiencies from your credit, with a few excep tions. Chapter 13 reorganizes your debts over a period of three to five years and allows you to re pay a percentage of your debts in an affordable payment plan. Once the plan is complete, any remaining debts are discharged. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a powerful tool to eliminate your second mortgage. If your home is worth less than what you owe on your first mortgage, we can eliminate the second mortgage on your home. Filing bankruptcy can be an emotional and difficult decision to make, but it may also be the best decision in the long run. Clearing the debt from your credit will not only bring you financial peace but it will also save you from garnishment of wages, frozen bank accounts and lawsuits from creditors. Seeking the help of an experi enced bankruptcy attorney will ensure the process goes smooth ly so that you can rebuild your credit and regain financial stability.

Before leav ing a child home alone, several factors should be considered. Age Although there are no absolute criteria for leaving a child home for a parent to assess their child's maturity level, many if not most children 8 to 9 years of age lack the maturity needed to be left home alone. It is best for parents and guardians to take into con sideration their childs comfort level, abilities and overall be havior and to talk to them about what to do if someone comes to the door, etc.) before making the decision to leave them home alone, even for short periods of time. Dont leave children aged 7 and under home alone for any reason and never leave a fearful child of any age home alone. Length of time Children under the age of 12 years should not be left home alone for more than two to three hours at a time, unless they are with older siblings. For younger children, begin by leaving them alone only for short periods of time. As they get used to the responsibility and become more comfortable, the length of time may be increased. Environment Children home by themselves should stick to the house and yard. If they are not permitted to go outside, it may serve to increase their sense of isolation and fearfulness. However, if you feel your neighborhood is unsafe for any reason, think twice before allowing children to be outside alone or home alone at all. such as the driveway or back yard. are not to use certain appliances, like the stove.

Limit television and computer time as you normally would. Encourage reading, writ ing a letter or writing in a journal, practicing an instrument, etc. Availability of adults Even if your child can reach you, you may not be able to get to him or her immediately. It is therefore critical that children home alone have a list of adults, such as neighbors or nearby relatives, who can be there at a moments notice. and cell phone numbers. to reassure him.

Mr. Natales Christmas (Fiction) Mr. Natale spoke to the pale lad in his palm-edged driveway, Well, sir, what can I do for you? Why not got any tackle? A pole across the street, said the lad. I havent seen you around before. No sir. I was in the hospital. You all right now? Im OK. Were going back home up North tomorrow. What was wrong? A big long name I cant say. I got blood transfusions. Im all right now. Good, said Mr. Natale. The old man and the boy walked down to the lake. Sit on the end of the dock. Dig some worms here on the shore. There are big bass in there, nice bream too. My dad told me your name is Mr. Natale youre a great singer. Was, son was a long time before you were born. You dont sing anymore, Mr. Natale? No. Why not? I couldnt do it anymore the way I wanted it to be. Well, why not? Guess I just got old, that's all. You could still sing great if you really wanted to. You dont honestly believe that, do you? Yes, I do. I know it. Well, well see. Have a good time In the bank Mr. Natale said, Morning Dottie, to the teller. He laid a check on the counter, and said, Id like to cash this Suddenly Giuseppe Natales mouth opened wide and began to sing. The words, Che gelida manina came out as clear and strong as they had when he sang La Bohme in the great opera houses of Europe. A ringing high C ed loudly. That was something, the teller said. Later at the supermarket, Mr. Natale The cashier gave him a smile. Mr. Natale, will it be cash or check? He said, Ill pay Then Giuseppe Natales mouth began to sing Celeste Aida. The people in the cashiers lines stared open-mouthed as he ended on a resound Rome and Paris. Wow, Mr. Natale, I never heard any cashier clapping her hands along with all the other people in the store. No, Rosie, I guess you didnt Say, theres no price on this olive oil. his gas tank. Mr. Natale, want me to check the oil? Frank asked. That would be very And his mouth launched into La donna mobile from Rigoletto. He held the high B at the end as long as he had ever had in Milan. Cars stopped people waved. Giuseppe Natale bowed low. At home, the little boy came up from the lake. I caught some, but I threw em back, said the little boy with a grin spread across his thin face. I just hadnt ever caught one before. Mr. Natale said, I sure wish you were Next day, Christmas, the boy and his family drove away. Christmases came. Christmases went. Mr. Natales mouth never sang any more songs. Merry Christmas! About Roney: H arvard42Distinguished Prof, E m.UCF 2004 Fla. Alliance for the Arts award (Assisted by beautiful wife Joy Roney) A reader recently commented on me by observing, Oh, Jepson, hes an athe ist, but I like him anyway. I took like him to mean that she agreed, more times than not, with my overall worldview; that in spite of my disbelief in a personal God, I still appeared/seemed a moral person. Religion, per se, intrigues me, primar ily at an historical level. I read books, for example, on the Catholic papacy, not for the arcane disputes over dogma and/or ritual (although interesting and humor ous) but to learn more on the longest run ning, most successful corporate bureau cracy in history. If one were looking for consistent moral authority, Rome would not be ones destination, anymore than Salt Lake City is a repository of latter day righteousness. That makes me laugh out loud, that re a Muslim or Mormon or Mennonite God somehow imbues you with the correct morality. Arguably, and the case is strong, religious dogma (doctrine) achieves just the opposite effect. Take, as one example, the recent political advertisement of Rick Perry, Republican presidential aspirant. In it he is OK to discriminate against gays (in the military) and that, if elected, hell restore Christmas and Christianity to the public square. Perry is a comical caricature of religious ignorance/intolerance. He ar ticulates a religious doctrine that says it is OK to marginalize human beings because they are different from you. Why? Cuz the Bible says its so. And that, gentle reader, is the prob lem with religion. It too often requires its adherents to think neither critically or creatively, or to not think in a rational or enlightened manner. Not only that, but it frequently encourages just the opposite. See much of the Republican Party plat form for examples. Religious doctrine fosters static cul tures. Contrary to evangelical thinking, a genuinely unfortunate development for America would be the full-throated embrace of Christianity; that the United States would in perpetuity operate under biblical law with conformity of the population to canonical principles both expected and required. See the 17th century Puritan colony of Massachusetts. See the witch trials. Why is much of the Islamic world seemingly trapped in the 12th century? Because religion has created monolithic, static cultures; because dogma, doctrine and conformity trump creativity and originality. Where does morality originate? What makes an individual operate in a moral manner? How is religion a factor in moral behavior? To the degree that religious dogma and a belief in a per sonal god are factors, well, possibly any connections are merely incidental and/or coincidental. But that is grist for another column. Is belief in a personal god required when organizing a nation, at any level? Politically, morally or otherwise, no. The answer is no. Japan is a highly success ful, moral nation. It venerates ances tors as opposed to a god. If one were to dispassionately evaluate the success of Japan, from the perspective of history, youd have to say Japan has succeeded without any belief in a personal god that is actively involved in the lives of the Japanese. Some Christians assume that athe ists operate without a moral compass or, worse, they are immoral. In reality the many atheists I know joyfully construct their moral worldview without need lessly embracing superstition or anti quated dogma. You know what? Who cares what you or I practice (believe). We live in America. Merry Christmas. Indeed. Jepson is a 24-year resident of Florida.
