Its a speck in the Atlan tic Ocean, minuscule compared to the three-story waves and 50 mph winds it battles. Saltwater smacks the team members skin, and the only space they have for refuge from the penetrating rain, blis tering sun and incredible work it takes to steer and propel their oars through the wild ocean, is a tiny cubby not large enough to sit up straight in. Its taken 56 days, but that speck has navigated the 2,550 nau tical miles nearly 3,000 miles on land that it takes to cross the Atlantic Ocean. Team Epoch, led and formed by Fern Park resi dent and Winter Park High School graduate Sonya Baumstein, set off on the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge (TWAC) on Dec. 5 in La Gomera, Spain, and arrived eighth of 17 teams on Monday, Jan. 30, in Barbados. The TWAC was created in 1997, and since then, fewer than 200 people have crossed the Atlantic. der team of four to complete the race, and were the only Ameri cans to participate this year. Baumstein joked that they were, out of 17 teams, voted least prepared. She hopes her team can inspire others to take a chance on adventure. While Baumstein had been a rower for Winter Park High School and passionate about the sport, she had no idea what she was in for at the TWAC. Long time friend Ashley Frasier said like this from her. It surprised me, Frasier said. She had never come off to me as this hardcore, outdoor girl. And she isnt. Were like an everyman if you will, Baumstein said. Were showing everyone you dont have to have rowed the ocean before, you dont have to have climbed Mt. Everest to be an adventurer. Two weeks after this challenge, Baumstein and her team will what she calls the 400 Challenge. They plan to complete 10,000 selfpowered miles in 400 days. Team Epoch will bike along the West Coast, kayak the Inside Passage from Alaska to Washington and Baumsteins goal with the 400 Challenge is to help promote her peditions. Shell tell her Challenge tale along the rest of her trip, edu cating adults and students on the environment and its wonders. This tion, and when she gets back, she plans to connect people to their and adventures, though less epic than her own current journey. I was aggravated with how impossible it seemed for some body to get outdoors, she said. Baumstein said she didnt like to set out on a real adventure: the cost of taking time off work, buy ing equipment and traveling to an offer people particularly those older than 40, whom she said have become landlocked at home and behind desks with an afford three days to 100 or more, with the 400 Challenge as a model for the future trips.

The team took shifts rowing, two hours on, two hours off. Theres no breaking for a nights sleep, these three men and one woman row for a couple hours, change into dry clothes, eat some ra men noodles and sleep for a little over an hour, 24 hours a day. The pain in their arms never goes away because there is no rest. Some days it rains for hours and it takes days to dry off. Another day, instead of rain, its a shark as big as their boat that follows them from hours. climbing Mt. Everest, because theres no prec edent for any trip; every day is different. And the ocean has no base camps. Adventuring is not easy and thats why not everyone does it, Baumstein said. Its our Everest. But Baumstein said its her team and her going. Shed been working on this trip and for nine months. When shes feeling down, she gives herself the same pep talk. This is my baby, she said. Im achiev ing this, something that people said I couldnt do. But her friend, Frasier, said anybody who knows Baumstein knows she would never give up. Shes probably one of the most headstrong and motivated people you will ever meet, Frasier said. When she came to me and told me she was doing this, I knew she could do it just because when she has her mind set on something, it will get done. And shes got a great team backing her up. Their spirit of adventure connects them. Michael McGovern, an Orlando resident who didnt take part in the TWAC but will join starting on the bike leg, said hes drawn to the challenge. The things that most people might shy away from, the challenges that are part of this 400 Challenge, are sort of the things that interest me and being able to overcome those obstacles, McGovern said. Ive always had a strong sense of adventure and Ive always been driven to sort of escape, and Ive never been able to really satisfy that desire. Baumsteins own desire might not be for the for the beautiful ones. On some nights, she and her team could see the Milky Way and Orions Belt because there wasnt a cloud, or light, in the sky to compete.

Sentimental for the history and hardships endured by the Polish people, Wagner wrote in journals that it was his dream to sail the ing the colors to all parts and peo ple of the world. In his pride for his country, he decided he was going to do some places it had never been before, his wife said. named the Zjawa I pronounced Zava and meaning like a ghost or phantom is the smallest of the three ships that hang above Mabel Wagners window. It is the boat, she says, that started her husbands journey around the world, getting him through America. There would be two more Zja was before his mission was com plete: Zjawa II to get him from South America to Australia, and the third, after sailing back to South America to build it, took him the rest of the way or at least as close as he could get to his homeland of Poland. In 1939, with more than 50,000 miles sailed, Wagner was ready to return to Poland a world traveler, but was met just short of dock ing at the harbor with news that his country had been once again invaded by Germany under com munist rule. It was news, his wife says, that saddened the man to his very core, and hung with him for the remainder of his life. When I met him (in Great Britain in 1945) he was very shy and humble, never boasting about anything though he had a lot to be proud of, she said. But there was a certain sadness behind it all collapse of all of his dreams for his country. Wladek Wagner would never return to Poland. In 1987, the Wagners published a book, By the Sun and Stars, named for the sailing equipment Captain Wagner used in his jour ney, documenting his circumnavi gation of the globe. After Wladek suffered a debili tating stroke in 1982, Mabel got to work translating his Polish manu scripts into English, while coach ing him to continue to type out still-able left hand. I used the book to stimulate his mind and give him a project to keep things alive, she said. I wanted to see that book in his hands, to have him know his story was told. A heros welcome A book was not enough to Piotrowski, a Polish sailor living in America, decided. For the 20 years since Wagners death, Pi otrowski said he sought to bring honor and conclusion to Wladek Wagners journey. In September 2011, amid the anniversaries related to Wagner coming up in 2012, he along with other Polish sailors from across the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and of course, Poland, decided to hold a sailing rally in his honor. around the world; he is one of our heroes, Piotrowski said. He has the spirit and skills that all other Polish sailors should look to. Still on her couch in Winter Park, not able to travel to the cel ebration due to health concerns, Mabel Wagner makes a phone call to a friend of a friend who was in attendance to the rally in the Brit ish Virgin Islands. ley says on the other end of the phone. It was really, truly won Mabels face instantly glows, a smile bigger than any seen that af ternoon. Her hand reaches to cov er her face, then to dab brimming tears from behind her glasses.

Page 16 Thursday, Feb. 2, 2012 Winter Park / Maitland Observer As a music student in New York, I joined many other youngsters in going to Town Hall concerts almost every night. There we could hear, for a buck or so, all kinds of concerts and a lot of them were people doing what was called modern music, a term that gave performers such as John Cage license to do anything outlandish, and call it music. Some of it was the loudest thing I had heard since we landed on Okinawa. The old saw the king is wearing no clothes is often em ployed when music critics tell the truth about music that is simply noise. In Tiedtke Hall, on Jan. 29, the Bach Festival Society brought the Manhattan offered a modicum of non-jarring me lodic music perhaps to repay those who healthy brassists can manage. Bernstein opened the show with ar rangements from his immortal West areddy Don Carlo Gesualdo (1566-1613) gave us three modal madrigals sauced with plenty of dissonance that lent them a mod sound. played straight, and still had an esoteric sound that made modern ears suspicious. Seymour Barab described the Seven Deadly Sins in music and though some were catchy and innovative, I had a hard time keeping my sins straight. The last sin was Anger, where the instruments did just what angry people do they all kept yakking at the same time. Dissonant Persechetti, after the pause, held little to please.

Page 18 Thursday, Feb. 2, 2012 Winter Park / Maitland Observer Opinions Comment on Bradley campaign mailer On Jan. 24 my son John handed me Ken Bradleys new campaign piece, which erty. When you lead with I wanted you to know the facts, you had better get the facts straight. I am referenced in Bradleys campaign served for 41 years. I have not been a prin cipal of, nor held stock in, nor held a board have worked only as a volunteer profes sional. The innuendos suggested by Brad leys statements pushing so hard for that deal and supporting such a bad deal untrue. In fact, I distanced myself from the that any involvement on my part would be in some way misrepresented for political gain. It appears that concern was valid. from all respondents, and entered into good-faith negotiations. The sweetheart deal was for the city of Winter Park to retain a valuable piece of property, with upgraded structures, hardscape and landscaping, serving 130 professionals who also dine and shop in businesses. The statement that the building would have only been renovated, and the question, would the eyesore blight have remained? are either uninformed or de liberately misleading. What was proposed frame as an encouragement for green architectural solutions within our city a new building on a recycled frame. In our industry, a new building on a recycled frame requires about 70 to 80 percent of the construction intensity and jobs normally attributed to what the Bradley campaign refers to as a brand-new build ing. It follows that the two approaches would offer similar opportunities to bring new jobs to the city. cies of the Bradley mailer, my son wrote down some of his thoughts on the broader background of this subject: The political atmosphere in this town Each election is a battle between forces of responsible development, thoughtfulness and preservation and the forces of demo lition and replacement with, frequently, out-of-scale and lesser structures, whether commercial or residential. My father has tried to stand against this process, and where he has been unable to stand against it, he has tried to slow it down. For this, as the Bradley mailer shows, he is a marked man. My dad and I supported Nancy Miles in the Winter Park mayoral election. Whether people, like my father, are more likely to have Winter Parks long-term interests at heart than the development-at-all-costs backers of Ken Bradleys campaign, you will have to judge. Jack Rogers and John Rogers, Jr. Pre-session business survey results As we approach the halfway point of the 2012 Legislative Session, Id like to take this opportunity to provide the results of my 2012 Pre-Session Survey. I sent out more than 10,000 hard copy surveys and emails throughout our community to learn more about the problems and issues that we must address in the Legislature to get Florida back on track.

State Rep. Bryan Nelson District 38 The elections over. The polls are closed. The signs are slowly making their way back into their respective campaign headquar ters. For most of our local candi dates that means their garage at bors they now speak for, or at least the ones they hoped to. City politics may have no shortage of mudslinging at times, but at the end of the cycle, as the votes are counted and we pick a winner, we have to hope that there are no real losers. All of our mayoral candidates campaigned on platforms that could have ben thriving downtown areas and a brighter tomorrow. How they planned on getting us all there is the only difference. This time around weve been lucky; there were no moments where one candidate truly forums saw little if any booing, and plenty of reason to cheer. No The doom saying of a destroyed Park Avenue or a towering over developed monstrosity only saw traction in the rumor mills rather than in the public light. In short, our would-be mayors played nice, or as nicely as one could play while staying politically competitive. But when we woke up on Wednesday, we may have noticed something different about our cities. As has often been the case after recent elections, or even down at the end of their term, they become ghosts. those candidates who narrowly missed a seat on the dais, are disappearing from public view, sometimes forever. You know their names, and for many years you saw their faces. They represented you at City Hall, just in case you werent there to have your voice be heard. They fought for a new downtown Park Avenue, more restaurants to shop in or more parkland to sit with the kids and watch a movie under the stars. In rare instances, they did something that was truly unpopular. In most cases, they simply did what they thought was right. But now those faces are gone. Save for recent Winter Park City Commissioner Karen Diebel, few have attempted to re-enter poli tics. But theyre right here, where were all lucky enough to call home. You know their faces, and youre not seeing them around much anymore. Theyve disap peared from the patio outside Palmanos. Unless its former Winter Park Mayor Joe Terrano va, these folks are rarely drop ping by on a meeting at City Hall to participate in government. Local politics is funny like that. It tends to alienate the peo ple who had the courage to try to help lead us, and it shouldnt. For the vast majority, they wanted a better place for all of us to call home. A punishment of socially enforced hermitage shouldnt await our leaders after the votes are counted. Most of the time those votes are awfully close. Not so this campaign. So three cheers for Howard Schieferdecker and Ken Bradley for winning re-election. But lets not give the cold shoulder to those who took a shot at becom what was best for the community too, just like the rest of us. Our Observation Elections arent a social death sentence The staff opinion titled Incentive program is tax break roulette, which appeared on Page 14 in the Jan. 19 issue, incorrectly described Maitlands economic incen tive program, which was the subject of a referendum on the Jan. 31 ballot. Maitland would be required to meet the states minimum standards for business incentives. The city has not identied whether it will simply meet those standards or surpass them, as ofcials were waiting to see if the referendum passed on Election Day.

Consider the question of abortion. Abortion rights are one of those lit mus issues for conservatives, as it is for liberals, such as myself. I would not consider voting for an individual who would restrict a womans fundamental right to control her own body. It is such an essential right, more inherent, more basic than even the right to vote. Ask yourself this: Which would you give up last? Your right to vote? Or, your right to control your own body? The irony abounds. It is immensely laughable in liberal es freedom from government intrusion and regulatory oversight yet thinks nothing of injecting the state (image in tentional) into Americas uteruses. And why is that? Because you are female. Because the government knows best what is good for you, girl. Fertile? Preg nant? Have babies. Birth control? You youre good for. Youre the vehicle of life, metaphorically/literally speaking, and regardless where you are at the moment (impoverished, sick, in school, alone, etc.), you will deliver. Or else. Perhaps if American women incorpo then leave them alone. Corporations, Americas daughters. You know what? I, personally, am not going to have an abortion. Men by nature of their anatomy should take the backbench and butt-out of this conversa tion. It is our daughters who will make before the capitalistic myth of the selfcorrecting marketplace that if we would only leave it alone yet, per versely, they think nothing of instituting regulatory oversight over our daughters Why do we think so little of Ameri cas women that we do not trust them, at an individual, private level, to make decisions that are good (appropriate) for them?

Its a speck in the Atlan tic Ocean, minuscule compared to the three-story waves and 50 mph winds it battles. Saltwater smacks the team members skin, and the only space they have for refuge from the penetrating rain, blis tering sun and incredible work it takes to steer and propel their oars through the wild ocean, is a tiny cubby not large enough to sit up straight in. Its taken 56 days, but that speck has navigated the 2,550 nautical miles nearly 3,000 miles on land that it takes to cross the Atlantic Ocean. Team Epoch, led and formed by Fern Park resi dent and Winter Park High School graduate Sonya Baumstein, set off on the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge (TWAC) on Dec. 5 in La Gomera, Spain, and arrived eighth of 17 teams on Monday, Jan. 30, in Barbados. The TWAC was created in 1997, and since then, fewer than 200 people have crossed the Atlantic. der team of four to complete the race, and were the only Ameri cans to participate this year. Baumstein joked that they were, out of 17 teams, voted least prepared. She hopes her team can inspire others to take a chance on adventure. While Baumstein had been a rower for Winter Park High School and passionate about the sport, she had no idea what she was in for at the TWAC. Long time friend Ashley Frasier said like this from her. It surprised me, Frasier said. She had never come off to me as this hardcore, outdoor girl. And she isnt. Were like an everyman if you will, Baumstein said. Were showing everyone you dont have to have rowed the ocean before, you dont have to have climbed Mt. Everest to be an adventurer. Two weeks after this challenge, Baumstein and her team will what she calls the 400 Challenge. They plan to complete 10,000 selfpowered miles in 400 days. Team Epoch will bike along the West Coast, kayak the Inside Passage from Alaska to Washington and Baumsteins goal with the 400 Challenge is to help promote her peditions. Shell tell her Challenge tale along the rest of her trip, edu cating adults and students on the environment and its wonders. This tion, and when she gets back, she plans to connect people to their and adventures, though less epic than her own current journey. I was aggravated with how impossible it seemed for some body to get outdoors, she said. Baumstein said she didnt like to set out on a real adventure: the cost of taking time off work, buy ing equipment and traveling to an offer people particularly those older than 40, whom she said have become landlocked at home and behind desks with an afford three days to 100 or more, with the 400 Challenge as a model for the future trips.

The team took shifts rowing, two hours on, two hours off. Theres no breaking for a nights sleep, these three men and one woman row for a couple hours, change into dry clothes, eat some ra men noodles and sleep for a little over an hour, 24 hours a day. The pain in their arms never goes away because there is no rest. Some days it rains for hours and it takes days to dry off. Another day, instead of rain, its a shark as big as their boat that follows them from hours. climbing Mt. Everest, because theres no prec edent for any trip; every day is different. And the ocean has no base camps. Adventuring is not easy and thats why not everyone does it, Baumstein said. Its our Everest. But Baumstein said its her team and her going. Shed been working on this trip and for nine months. When shes feeling down, she gives herself the same pep talk. This is my baby, she said. Im achiev ing this, something that people said I couldnt do. But her friend, Frasier, said anybody who knows Baumstein knows she would never give up. Shes probably one of the most headstrong and motivated people you will ever meet, Frasier said. When she came to me and told me she was doing this, I knew she could do it just because when she has her mind set on something, it will get done. And shes got a great team backing her up. Their spirit of adventure connects them. Michael McGovern, an Orlando resident who didnt take part in the TWAC but will join starting on the bike leg, said hes drawn to the challenge. The things that most people might shy away from, the challenges that are part of this 400 Challenge, are sort of the things that interest me and being able to overcome those obstacles, McGovern said. Ive always had a strong sense of adventure and Ive always been driven to sort of escape, and Ive never been able to really satisfy that desire. Baumsteins own desire might not be for the for the beautiful ones. On some nights, she and her team could see the Milky Way and Orions Belt because there wasnt a cloud, or light, in the sky to compete. The wind was perfect and the waves would push the boat just right. You could feel the boat gliding on top of them and it was just light and easy and that was incredible. Its TAX time.

Sentimental for the history and hardships endured by the Polish people, Wagner wrote in journals that it was his dream to sail the ing the colors to all parts and peo ple of the world. In his pride for his country, he decided he was going to do someplaces it had never been before, his wife said. named the Zjawa I pronounced Zava and meaning like a ghost or phantom is the smallest of the three ships that hang above Mabel Wagners window. It is the boat, she says, that started her husbands journey around the world, getting him through America. There would be two more Zjawas before his mission was com plete: Zjawa II to get him from South America to Australia, and the third, after sailing back to South America to build it, took him the rest of the way or at least as close as he could get to his homeland of Poland. In 1939, with more than 50,000 miles sailed, Wagner was ready to return to Poland a world traveler, but was met just short of dock ing at the harbor with news that his country had been once again invaded by Germany under com munist rule. It was news, his wife says, that saddened the man to his very core, and hung with him for the remainder of his life. When I met him (in Great Britain in 1945) he was very shy and humble, never boasting about anything though he had a lot to be proud of, she said. But there was a certain sadness behind it all collapse of all of his dreams for his country. Wladek Wagner would never return to Poland. In 1987, the Wagners published a book, By the Sun and Stars, named for the sailing equipment Captain Wagner used in his jour ney, documenting his circumnavigation of the globe. After Wladek suffered a debili tating stroke in 1982, Mabel got to work translating his Polish manuscripts into English, while coach ing him to continue to type out still-able left hand. I used the book to stimulate his mind and give him a project to keep things alive, she said. I wanted to see that book in his hands, to have him know his story was told. AA heros welcome A book was not enough to Piotrowski, a Polish sailor living in America, decided. For the 20 years since Wagners death, Pi otrowski said he sought to bring honor and conclusion to Wladek Wagners journey. In September 2011, amid the anniversaries related to Wagner coming up in 2012, he along with other Polish sailors from across the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and of course, Poland, decided to hold a sailing rally in his honor. around the world; he is one of our heroes, Piotrowski said. He has the spirit and skills that all other Polish sailors should look to. Still on her couch in Winter Park, not able to travel to the celebration due to health concerns, Mabel Wagner makes a phone call to a friend of a friend who was in attendance to the rally in the Brit ish Virgin Islands. ley says on the other end of the phone. It was really, truly won Mabels face instantly glows, a smile bigger than any seen that af ternoon. Her hand reaches to cov er her face, then to dab brimming tears from behind her glasses.

Page 16 Thursday, Feb. 2, 2012 Winter Park / Maitland Observer As a music student in New York, I joined many other youngsters in going to Town Hall concerts almost every night. There we could hear, for a buck or so, all kinds of concerts and a lot of them were people doing what was called modern music, a term that gave performers such as John Cage license to do anything outlandish, and call it music. Some of it was the loudest thing I had heard since we landed on Okinawa. The old saw the king is wearing no clothes is often employed when music critics tell the truth about music that is simply noise. In Tiedtke Hall, on Jan. 29, the Bach Festival Society brought the Manhattan offered a modicum of non-jarring melodic music perhaps to repay those who healthy brassists can manage. Bernstein opened the show with ar rangements from his immortal West areddy Don Carlo Gesualdo (1566-1613) gave us three modal madrigals sauced with plenty of dissonance that lent them a mod sound. played straight, and still had an esoteric sound that made modern ears suspicious. Seymour Barab described the Seven Deadly Sins in music and though some were catchy and innovative, I had a hard time keeping my sins straight. The last sin was Anger, where the instruments did just what angry people do they all kept yakking at the same time. Dissonant Persechetti, after the pause, held little to please.

Page 18 Thursday, Feb. 2, 2012 Winter Park / Maitland Observer OOpinions Comment on Bradley campaign mailerOn Jan. 24 my son John handed me Ken Bradleys new campaign piece, which erty. When you lead with I wanted you to know the facts, you had better get the facts straight. I am referenced in Bradleys campaign served for 41 years. I have not been a principal of, nor held stock in, nor held a board have worked only as a volunteer professional. The innuendos suggested by Brad leys statements pushing so hard for that deal and supporting such a bad deal untrue. In fact, I distanced myself from the that any involvement on my part would be in some way misrepresented for political gain. It appears that concern was valid. from all respondents, and entered into good-faith negotiations. The sweetheart deal was for the city of Winter Park to retain a valuable piece of property, with upgraded structures, hardscape and landscaping, serving 130 professionals who also dine and shop in businesses. The statement that the building would have only been renovated, and the question, would the eyesore blight have remained? are either uninformed or deliberately misleading. What was proposed frame as an encouragement for green architectural solutions within our city a new building on a recycled frame. In our industry, a new building on a recycled frame requires about 70 to 80 percent of the construction intensity and jobs normally attributed to what the Bradley campaign refers to as a brand-new building. It follows that the two approaches would offer similar opportunities to bring new jobs to the city. cies of the Bradley mailer, my son wrote down some of his thoughts on the broader background of this subject: The political atmosphere in this town Each election is a battle between forces of responsible development, thoughtfulness and preservation and the forces of demolition and replacement with, frequently, out-of-scale and lesser structures, whether commercial or residential. My father has tried to stand against this process, and where he has been unable to stand against it, he has tried to slow it down. For this, as the Bradley mailer shows, he is a marked man. My dad and I supported Nancy Miles in the Winter Park mayoral election. Whether people, like my father, are more likely to have Winter Parks long-term interests at heart than the development-at-all-costs backers of Ken Bradleys campaign, you will have to judge. Jack RRogers and John RRogers, Jr. Pre-session business survey resultsAs we approach the halfway point of the 2012 Legislative Session, Id like to take this opportunity to provide the results of my 2012 Pre-Session Survey. I sent out more than 10,000 hard copy surveys and emails throughout our community to learn more about the problems and issues that we must address in the Legislature to get Florida back on track. I appreciate all encouraged by the thoughts and insights this survey collected: Floridas academic standards should be raised in order to help Floridas children compete in the global marketplace. schools are not improving. should have a standard diploma program focused on career and technical training for students not planning on attending college. do not support requiring homeowners to pay $15,000 for advance treatment septic systems and $30 to $50 per month in maintenance that may or may not reduce nutrient loading in an impaired district. do not support requiring an inspection and pump out of their septic tanks every 5-7 years at a cost of about $300 as a way to improve water quality and increase the that the state and local governments, as well as state and local environmental and health agencies, must be involved when a have not noticed a decrease in burdensome regulations at the state and/or local level. development and to facilitate job creation and growth. government is not responsible for job creation. ting while driving, should be made illegal. for military veterans who have committed non-violent crimes to ensure they receive the right assistance. were unsure if the recently enacted 2011 laws have been effective in combating pill mills and prescription drug abuse in Central Florida. crime in the community has increased.

SState RRep. BBryan NNelson District 38The elections over. The polls are closed. The signs are slowly making their way back into their respective campaign headquar ters. For most of our local candi dates that means their garage at bors they now speak for, or at least the ones they hoped to. City politics may have no shortage of mudslinging at times, but at the end of the cycle, as the votes are counted and we pick a winner, we have to hope that there are no real losers. All of our mayoral candidates campaigned on platforms that could have benthriving downtown areas and a brighter tomorrow. How they planned on getting us all there is the only difference. This time around weve been lucky; there were no moments where one candidate truly forums saw little if any booing, and plenty of reason to cheer. No The doom saying of a destroyed Park Avenue or a towering over developed monstrosity only saw traction in the rumor mills rather than in the public light. In short, our would-be mayors played nice, or as nicely as one could play while staying politically competitive. But when we woke up on Wednesday, we may have noticed something different about our cities. As has often been the case after recent elections, or even down at the end of their term, they become ghosts. those candidates who narrowly missed a seat on the dais, are disappearing from public view, sometimes forever. You know their names, and for many years you saw their faces. They represented you at City Hall, just in case you werent there to have your voice be heard. They fought for a new downtown Park Avenue, more restaurants to shop in or more parkland to sit with the kids and watch a movie under the stars. In rare instances, they did something that was truly unpopular. In most cases, they simply did what they thought was right. But now those faces are gone. Save for recent Winter Park City Commissioner Karen Diebel, few have attempted to re-enter poli tics. But theyre right here, where were all lucky enough to call home. You know their faces, and youre not seeing them around much anymore. Theyve disappeared from the patio outside Palmanos. Unless its former Winter Park Mayor Joe Terranova, these folks are rarely drop ping by on a meeting at City Hall to participate in government. Local politics is funny like that. It tends to alienate the peo ple who had the courage to try to help lead us, and it shouldnt. For the vast majority, they wanted a better place for all of us to call home. A punishment of socially enforced hermitage shouldnt await our leaders after the votes are counted. Most of the time those votes are awfully close. Not so this campaign. So three cheers for Howard Schieferdecker and Ken Bradley for winning re-election. But lets not give the cold shoulder to those who took a shot at becomwhat was best for the community too, just like the rest of us. Our Observation EElections arent a social death sentence The staff opinion titled IIncentive program is tax break roulette, which appeared on Page 14 in the Jan. 19 issue, incorrectly described Maitlands economic incentive program, which was the subject of a referendum on the Jan. 31 ballot. Maitland would be required to meet the states minimum standards for business incentives. The city has not identied whether it will simply meet those standards or surpass them, as ofcials were waiting to see if the referendum passed on EElection Day.

If one has core principles, one doesnt change ones erate posing as a conservative and that he affects such a hard-nosed pose only to I believe that is essentially accurate, that (realist) passing as one of the faithful. Consider the question of abortion. Abortion rights are one of those litmus issues for conservatives, as it is for liberals, such as myself. I would not consider voting for an individual who would restrict a womans fundamental right to control her own body. It is such an essential right, more inherent, more basic than even the right to vote. Ask yourself this: Which would you give up last? Your right to vote? Or, your right to control your own body? The irony abounds. It is immensely laughable in liberal es freedom from government intrusion and regulatory oversight yet thinks nothing of injecting the state (image intentional) into Americas uteruses. And why is that? Because you are female. Because the government knows best what is good for you, girl. Fertile? Pregnant? Have babies. Birth control? You youre good for.

Perhaps if American women incorpothen leave them alone. Corporations, Americas daughters. You know what? I, personally, am not going to have an abortion. Men by nature of their anatomy should take the backbench and butt-out of this conversation. It is our daughters who will make before the capitalistic myth of the selfcorrecting marketplace that if we would only leave it alone yet, per versely, they think nothing of instituting regulatory oversight over our daughters Why do we think so little of Americas women that we do not trust them, at an individual, private level, to make decisions that are good (appropriate) for them? Male legislators in Tallahas see or Washington know what is best for Americas daughters? Is that possible? Or, is it tyranny? supported a womans right to reproductive choice. He was a middle-aged, prochoice advocate. Fast forward to 2012, and he cannot spit out his anti-abortion (the White House) than he is willing to risk (lose) over principle.

If we dont get him out of there, he will destroy our country. not, however, so uncaring and ignorant that I do not worry greatly about this wonderful country of ours. We seem to be pretty much in the hands of slick scoundrels these days, and coming elections offer us mostly rather nots. I have read about Washington, Jefferson, Madison and later even about Eisenhower and believe that only good guys should be in the White House and even in Congress. But somewhere somebody screwed up the works, and we have guys at the top that I wouldnt trust out of sight under my car makes sense as to how this guy Obama is president of anything, as no one can locate a private job he ever held before. You surely cant depend on politics to teach you how to be practical, honest or reli do the job, but not begging the public to set you up for life in the charade called the Presidency. the judiciary system.
