Thursday, April 5, 2012 50+ tax wpmobserver.com Subscribe now! Visit wpmobserver.com Walking up and down Park Avenue the past couple weeks you might not have noticed them, but they noticed you. At least eight black, spheri cally capped surveillance cam eras have been installed at inter sections throughout downtown Winter Park by the Winter Park Police Department, Lt. Tom Pearson says, to help monitor crime and collect intelligence in the area. The cameras were paid for through the citys Homeland Se curity funds, with the police de partment fronting $35,000 itself for connectivity. They went live, recording 24/7, in mid-March. Pearson declined to identify how many cameras were installed and where. The Observer located eight of them. Their main purpose is to monitor with the general idea of public safety in mind, Pearson said. We see it as an oppor tunity for Winter Park residents present where we cant always But with the thoughts of increasingly being watched, whether it be from these surveil lance cameras, red-light cam eras, or those mounted on the dashboards of police cars, some residents have the feeling that Big Brother government has arrived, while others see it as just catching up with technologi cal times. Winter Park Mayor Ken Brad ley says the cameras are the real ity of the technological world we live in today. Cameras, like lights, make places safer I have no reason to believe anyones rights have been threatened or violated, he said. But on the defense, John Dingfelder, senior staff attorney for the American Civil Liber ties Union of Florida, which has consistently opposed the use of cameras to monitor public plac es, says this sort of surveillance is just the tip of the iceberg. If people get too comfort able with giving up their rights to privacy on the sidewalk, then the next step is the rights to pri vacy elsewhere, he said. Little by little, thats how we lose our rights. Many residents and business owners say even though theyve been walking and running busi ness under the cameras surveil lance for weeks, they had no idea they were there, or that they were being recorded. Lt. Pearson said there has been no public announcement regarding the cameras or their locations. He says there are two sides to the debate on whether cameras should be publicized Ravaudage would be a positive improvement for that area of Winter Park and would provide many jobs.

Page 3 Thursday, April 5, 2012 Winter Park / Maitland Observer Deep-seated personality traits of mine have al ways been those of a designer and builder. Numerous career choices have been in the construction trades, starting as a carpenters helper during college summer breaks, working in the whole sale building supply industry, and even as an electrician at the Mouse House. During these 30-plus years, interspersed with creating my homestead and gardens, concern for job safety has evolved from non-existent current position as an instructor of the noble art of growing your own food, imparting safe work ing habits has become a mission and duty. What could possibly be dan gerous safely ensconced in the tranquility of my garden? The soft, deeply turned soil, perfectly loosened to allow the roots easy penetration, was more than likely broken up with sharp steel imple ments. Whether using a sharp ened spade-shaped shovel or the rapidly rotating tines on a gaspowered roto-tiller, our soft toes are no match when directing as much force as possible at targeted let alone bare feet, are out of the question when considering gar den attire. At a bare minimum, closed-toe sneakers should be worn, with steel toe combat boot probably recommended by the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) guide lines. The various denizens of the natural world all have their bag of tricks when feeling threatened. I am amazed at the tenderness of thin-skinned guests to my great out-of-doors when facing down the poison arsenal of mere and no-see-um welts, not to mention bee stings or scorpion zolts. Long-sleeve shirts and canvas jeans preclude the major ity of itches. Chemical repellants, sprayed on a paper towel and then applied sparingly to outer clothes and exposed skin. Timing is everything, with most biting bugs looking to snack on us right around sunset. The most inconvenient safety chore during a cardio session in the garden on a hot, humid afternoon would be a dust mask. Dry soil will emit particulate of untold composition. Tossing granular fertilizer warrants an awareness of wind direction and pity for all those downstream from the dust cloud. Diatoma ceous earth, an insect control, is jagged microscopic silica skeletal remains of diatom algae, akin to ground-up glass. My primary procrastinator when planning to muck out the chicken coop is the airborne manure powder. Gardening is the oldest and most popular active hobby in the history of our species. The im mediate enjoyment in an idyllic setting must be slightly tempered with safety measure to ensure future enjoyment. Have fun, grow safe! 6TH ANNUAL SHRED EVENT 400 Park Avenue South, Suite 120 | Winter Park 407.455.1983 | CharyliStores.comPark Avenues newest womens clothing boutique brings West Coast cool and East Coast sophistication to downtown Winter Park. Tom Carey From my garden to yours Tips to make your garden safe PHOTO BY TOM C AREY THE OBSERVER Garden tools can be accidental hazards to the untrained gardener. Whether using a sharpened spade-shaped shovel or the rapidly rotating tines on a gas-powered roto-tiller, our soft toes are no match when directing as much force as possible at targeted root clumps.

Page 5 Thursday, April 5, 2012 Winter Park / Maitland Observer or not. If known to be there, he said, the cameras could possibly deter criminal activity, but also limit the amount of intelligence the department can gain from the footage, which is continuously recorded, but not live monitored, except during large-scale public events. Park Avenue shopper Jennifer Green says she doesnt view the cameras as an invasion of her pri vacy. If people dont have anything to hide than it doesnt matter, she said. I think it only ensures that if something does happen that it can be investigated. Winter Park resident Paul Vonder Heide disagrees. For people who like [cam eras], it gives them a false sense of security, that the camera will protect them, he wrote in a let ter to the editor. For people who do not, it is an invasion of privacy, over-the-top big brother govern ment snooping on everything every citizen does, and scares good people from Winter Park because they think the city's sur veillance cams mean that Winter Park is a high-crime area. Winter Park resident Casey Barton can see how some may view the camera as a big brother phenomenon, but says he views it as sign of the times. Im not worried about crime on Park Avenue, he said. I think its just that were on the cuttingedge of technology and that this is something the city can afford to do to help with public safety. Carson Gray, manager at Luma on Park, says he thinks the camer as will add to the security his res taurant has already been working on for years, installing their own surveillance cameras to monitor their valet service. He says the footage from their cameras has in the past helped substantiate claims where cars have been hit outside the restaurant, and driv ers have left the scene. We dont have many people ask about them because not many people realize that theyre there, and if they do, they understand the purpose, he said. Winter Park Chamber of Com merce President Patrick Chapin says he hasnt had any residents or business owners complain to the Chamber about the cameras. He says he believes that the vast number of people, when they see the cameras, recognize that they are precautionary and for shop pers and diners safety, saying the cameras are more likely to de ter crime than deter business. For the safety of our commu nity, I dont think it impacts the ambiance or charm of Park Av enue, he said. When the legality of surveil lance cameras has been brought to court, it has been ruled that the public has no expectation of privacy on the public street and sidewalk, so the silent surveil lance recordings are legal. Other communities on board Though other local cities, such as Maitland, Oviedo and Winter Springs, do not currently utilize surveillance cameras, police cap tains from each department say if and when the cities further de velop their downtown cores, they would consider installing them. Winter Springs Chief of Police Kevin Brunelle said his depart ment is currently in the infant stages of looking into grants to install surveillance cameras in the city. Technology-wise, it is the way of the future for us to be able to His department already uses dashboard cameras in 90 percent of its police cars, with surveillance cameras being the next step. Everybody speaks up about constitutional rights, but you dont have the right to not be vid eotaped while breaking the law, he said.

Page 6 Thursday, April 5, 2012 Winter Park / Maitland Observer A spot in the NCAA Top 25 is a rarity among UCFs big three sports. Cracking the top 15 is even rarer. In the past few weeks, the Knights baseball team has man aged both, rising steadily in the ranks to hit No. 14 on the tide of a 23-6, 5-1 start to the season. That impressive record in cludes a string of four straight wins in a whirlwind tour last week that ended with the Knights outlasting Houston in a 3-1 extrainnings win. That win closed out a three-game sweep of Houston, their second series win to start Conference USA play. But most of the Knights wins havent even been close, with blowouts becoming the routine. In March they won six games by 8 runs or more. And they owe that massive run differential to an experienced team that has carried a powerhouse core of players over from the last season. Ronnie Richardson, Dar nell Sweeney, D.J. Hicks and Ryan Breen were regulars on the score board last year, and theyre giving more of the same to the Knights. Against Houston on April 1, the slowly but were the heroes of the game by the end, with Richardson and Sweeney scoring in the top of the tenth, and Hicks and Chris Taladay adding an RBI each and combining to put the icing on the Knights win. The Knights took a trip to Mi ami Wednesday night at press time in a revenge match against the Hurricanes who beat them 3-2 in their last meeting. When they return home Friday, theyll host UAB with a 6:30 p.m. three-game series. Rollins rebounds The Tars are 19-10 overall, but struggling in Sunshine State Con ference play with a 2-4 record heading deeper into the season. They rebounded from a threegame losing streak with a 6-2 trouncing of Tampa on March 31, thanks to four hitters getting two hits apiece. Boston Langley jacked a tworun shot out of the park in the second for some insurance runs, but the Tars already had all they needed to beat Tampa. Starter Brett Mueller went seven innings, giving up six hits for the win. That prevented a sweep by Tampa and gave the Tars their second confer ence win of the season. Theyll look to build on that win with a three-game series at Eckerd in St. Petersburg. That starts at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 5, followed by a doubleheader at noon and 3 p.m. Friday, April 6. In battles against teams from odd parts of the state, the Wild cats have had their troubles, but on the baseball diamond against district foes, theyve dominated. After a tough week, Winter Park (10-6, 6-1) emerged with two loss es but a largely untarnished dis trict record.

Page 16 Thursday, April 5, 2012 Winter Park / Maitland Observer Opinions If youre given a speeding ticket and forget to pay it for long enough, you may now be subject to a strip search. Thats a rather extreme example, but one thats now legally allowed thanks to a anyone arrested for any reason. Considering that America has the largest population of incarcer ated residents in the world, thats an awful lot of humiliation about to happen. jailed each year in the United ity opinion on the ruling, which split directly down political lines with the court. Dont think youll be among comes from a seemingly unlikely was arrested and strip-searched processed. He found out the hard way what a clerical error can cost. Florence seemed an unlikely Philadelphia car dealership, he by his wife, when she was pulled over for speeding. When police noticed he had an outstanding arrested, even though he had a court document in his possession proving hed paid it. Hed kept it, cisely to prevent this type of mix way, with proof that he should be free to go, he was arrested in son anyway. When he arrived at jail, he was strip-searched. When he was moved to another jail in another county, he was strip-searched again. It was humiliating, Flor made me feel like less of a man. He was in jail for more than free when the courts discovered stating that his Fourth Amend ment right against unlawful search was violated. Despite the obvious incom petence displayed in the arrest and treatment of a non-criminal the courts are in no position to second-guess the judgments of they are. They are some of the very few in a position to second guess the judgment of corrections case. They simply failed to do so. Citing some of the more dangerous examples on hand, included terrorist bomber Timo tor. The implication being that since we have examples of ar restees committing worse crimes than those they were arrested for, anyone who is arrested for any reason even non-criminal rea sons is immediately suspected of being in the act of committing search everybody whos put in handcuffs? G. Breyer wrote about his own searched after being arrested at an anti-war protest, a driver strip searched after driving with rider strip searched after riding a bicycle without an audible bell. In states with some stricter laws, someone could conceivably be strip searched after feeding the homeless, for violating a leash law or for not using a turn signal. Florence thought police went too far in searching his naked body for drugs and weapons after he was wrongly arrested for a civil infraction he hadnt even committed. According to the resting him wasnt far enough. Our Observation Letters to the editor Send your thoughts (400 words or less) to Managing Editor Jenny Andreasson at editor@observernewspapers.com Ravaudage will shine Thank you for the article concerning the Winter Park Commission meeting in reference to the Ravaudage development the area and have been looking forward to its completion for years. It would be a positive improvement for that area of Winter Park and would provide many job opportunities for citizens. Accordingly, I dont understand why commissioner Carolyn Cooper said she was worried that the rights of nearby property owners werent being respected in terms of impact to their properties and businesses by the large development. As one of the citizens affected, Im sure that the long term impact will be positive, not negative, as her thinking seems to in values in the area will increase, shopping will be well within walking distance, and the area, which is now not eye-pleasing at all, will basically shine in comparison. I researched the air curtain burner proposed by developer Dan Bellows. Its an excellent solution. I suggest that all Commission members research its use and affects. Im sure no one will then have res ervations and will do what must be done eliminate debris. The million dollars saved could then be used to make the develop ment even better in some way. One million dollars saved could translate into many employment opportunities. Even if burn ing does cause some temporary smoke conditions, it should be well known by our community leaders that true progress does not come without some short-term inconveniences. To think otherwise would be tantamount to living in Florida and thinking one would never suffer the incon venience caused by a hurricane. One more thing its being cattycornered to our present successful area, the Winter Park Village, will be a great expansion of that type of shopping and living area. In the future I can even foresee funds being allocated to build a walkover bridge at the intersection of Lee Road unencumbered access between the two without the hassle of trying to cross heav ily travelled roads. Donald E. Long Winter Park Reasons for apathy are obvious reasons that I wont go into, but at least a number of you are aware of why. As some of you may remember, the Council passed an ordinance to allow seven-story buildings within the CRA signatures, whatever was required, to not build above four stories and have a refer endum. The council relented and removed the ordinance rather than have it go to ref erendum, which they knew the petitioners would prevail. I now see that youre trying you are basically saying is, we thumb our nose at the public and do what we want. the CRA and you wonder why! Prior to the petition, the city had to hold a council meeting at a basketball court are came out to protest not only the height, but also the general CRA debt that the city would incur and their whole CRA method ology. After that meeting it was like all of the people who made presentations could have been talking to a wall. The message received by the public was, we will do what we want, and you, the public, have no say. The same could be said for all of the fake workshops the city held, a sham. the CRA and you wonder why! During that time period, there were citizens who came to speak to the council. One was a city planner who does work center expert and the list goes on. They all least three occasions to inform the council that his staff performed an analysis on the tainable. In any event it didnt matter who came to the Council, it had the same effect as talking to a blank wall. Today with as little as has been done, the city has to put top of that, the city put a tax on everyone to cover a shortfall. Im sorry, I called it a tax, the city called it a fee, my checkbook doesnt know the difference, and you won During all of the years that the CRA has been around, the citys once-a-month newsletter, never, maybe once, mentioned the issues of the CRA. Has anyone ever told the public in a newsletter how much debt the city has? The booklets that the on what it takes in, but you needed an accountants degree and calls to the city to get the real numbers, and you wonder At one point there were a group of CEOs and director-level people that wanted to help the city and advise on the CRA, another blank wall of hearing. I was the Orange County representative member of the three-person CRA advisor board. I quit after a year because the mayor refused to call a meeting, and you wonder why tered discretion for the council to make decisions and spend money and pass it off limits. I would ask that this letter be read at the next council meeting before you take any vote, or if you dont want to read it out loud, at least read it into the record and provide all members of the council with the text.

Alliance for the Arts award (Assisted by beautiful wife Joy Roney) Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? cynic, but a skeptic. Perhaps that is a dis tinction without a difference, but I shall attempt to make it nonetheless. A skeptic questions the facts, a cynic questions we call America is inexorably moving from one of skepticism to cynicism. We pat ourselves on our backs (and they say, the best money can buy. But that has always been the case. America has never been a democracy where vest ed interests didnt have the inherent Constitution was adopted, only white, male property owners, by and large, were eligible to vote. People of color, women, and any white men without property were out of luck and out of the process voting requirements started to change na tionwide so that all white men could vote. Thems that got have always worked advantage. Understandably, they want to keep or increase what they have. This translates into tax advantages, outright government largesse, as well as less regulatory oversight whatever can be secured by preferential access (political through the political process. The question becomes one of balance. How do we balance the legitimate inter ests of the individual vis--vis the equally legitimate interest of the state (working that my skepticism is moving to cynicism. ingly rigged (thumb-on-the-scale prefer I feel the cynicism in America growing much as the songwriter Leonard Cohen articulates in his classic song, Everybody Everybody knows that the dice are loaded Everybody knows that the war is over Everybody knows the good guys lost The poor stay poor, the rich get rich Thats how it goes Everybody knows. Court election of George W. Bush. We see it in government subsidies for Americas petroleum corporations. We experience it in a revenue code that taxes labor at higher rates than investment income. And corporations, according to our conser when it comes to speech and political contributions. But nowhere is our democracy so clearly under attack as by Republican efforts to suppress voter turnout. Repub lican-controlled state legislatures all over America are following Floridas example of reducing early voting and making new voter registration initiatives so onerous him if voter fraud was a problem, or was rampant in Florida. He stated unequivo cally that it was not. Florida legislators fear of a non-existent problem to change early voting hours as well as registration drives. Ertel declined to speculate as to League of Women Voters has stopped registration drives. There is no widespread voter fraud in Florida. Republicans are attempting to suppress black, Hispanic, poor and elderly voting. Why? To skew elections in favor of the Republican Right. no sense of decency? The answer is apparent. Jepson is a 24-year resident of Florida. Hes scally conservative, socially liberal, likes art and embraces diversity of opinion. Reach him at Jepson@MEDIAmerica.US The worlds great religions espouse a principle weve come to call the Golden Rule. Its a universal call for all humans to treat others as theyd like to be treated. Its not a complicated concept. Yet its sometimes carry out in practice because in any given situation we may have a number of val ues competing for prime consideration. Ethicists refer to it as having to stack our imperatives. provides a classic example. A young man is dead, and his killer, free, not charged with any crime. that hard to believe. Impossible, in fact. How can it be called justice when an adult, whos been told by a police dispatcher to back off, continues to pursue, confronts and shoots an unarmed youth? As a parent, I can relate to the angst of Trayvons parents. And so can millions of other onlookers around the world who are watch ing news reports and making comments via social media. But it gets trickier. Collectively we Americans believe in justice for all, which includes a value weve labeled innocent until proven guilty. We believe in due process and being tried before a jury of ones we may be about what has hap serves the right to make his case before a court of law. Its only there that all the competing facts and allegations can be appropri ately assembled and evaluated. But theres a problem. For the past seven years weve had a law on the books in Florida the not only gives amazing liberties to any who simply feel threat ened by someone else, but that also puts severe limits on the abil bring charges. In the absence of credible on-the-scene evidence to the contrary, a killers testi mony may be all thats needed to keep the case out of the courts those ultimately responsible claim they couldnt arrest him and still uphold the law. In an ideal world, the ideal citizens would sit back and let the wheels of ideal government turn at the ideal speed and produce ideal justice. But we dont live in an ideal world. Experience has taught us that for a variety of reasons, government doesnt always deliver on its promise of justice for all. Recognizing the ability of gov ernment to get it wrong, our Con stitutions First Amendment (in grants freedom of speech, free dom of the press, freedom to peaceably assemble and free dom to petition the government provisions have increasingly been out the nation. With all of the foregoing in Council of Central Florida (whose members include representatives from the Buddhist, Christian, every level to move quickly and transparently in seeking justice call upon all citizens to continue, in a decidedly determined yet respectful and peaceful man ner, to demand that government decision makers not rest until justice has been served and until trust has been restored. We urge our governor and legislators to expeditiously revisit the law that allowed this terrible tragedy to occur. In other words, the Interfaith Council has asked that everyone follow the Golden Rule as we seek justice for all. James Cofn is executive director of the Interfaith Council of Central Florida. Trayvon, justice and the Golden Rule JAMES COFFIN Guest Writer James Cofn George Zimmerman deserves the right to make his case before a court of law.

Thursday, April 5, 2012 50+ tax wpmobserver.comSubscribe now!Visit wpmobserver.com Walking up and down Park Avenue the past couple weeks you might not have noticed them, but they noticed you. At least eight black, spherically capped surveillance cam eras have been installed at inter sections throughout downtown Winter Park by the Winter Park Police Department, Lt. Tom Pearson says, to help monitor crime and collect intelligence in the area. The cameras were paid for through the citys Homeland Se curity funds, with the police de partment fronting $35,000 itself for connectivity. They went live, recording 24/7, in mid-March. Pearson declined to identify how many cameras were installed and where. The Observer located eight of them. Their main purpose is to monitor with the general idea of public safety in mind, Pearson said. We see it as an oppor tunity for Winter Park residents present where we cant always But with the thoughts of increasingly being watched, whether it be from these surveillance cameras, red-light cameras, or those mounted on the dashboards of police cars, some residents have the feeling that Big Brother government has arrived, while others see it as just catching up with technologi cal times. Winter Park Mayor Ken Brad ley says the cameras are the reality of the technological world we live in today. Cameras, like lights, make places safer I have no reason to believe anyones rights have been threatened or violated, he said. But on the defense, John Dingfelder, senior staff attorney for the American Civil Liber ties Union of Florida, which has consistently opposed the use of cameras to monitor public plac es, says this sort of surveillance is just the tip of the iceberg. If people get too comfort able with giving up their rights to privacy on the sidewalk, then the next step is the rights to pri vacy elsewhere, he said. Little by little, thats how we lose our rights. Many residents and business owners say even though theyve been walking and running busi ness under the cameras surveil lance for weeks, they had no idea they were there, or that they were being recorded. Lt. Pearson said there has been no public announcement regarding the cameras or their locations. He says there are two sides to the debate on whether cameras should be publicized Ravaudage would be a positive improvement for that area of Winter Park and would provide many jobs.Page 16Letters to the editor Senior Observer When Ruth Leiber turned 110 years old last week, she shared her surprising secrets to longevity.

Page 3 Thursday, April 5, 2012 Winter Park / Maitland Observer Deep-seated personality traits of mine have always been those of a designer and builder. Numerous career choices have been in the construction trades, starting as a carpenters helper during college summer breaks, working in the whole sale building supply industry, and even as an electrician at the Mouse House. During these 30-plus years, interspersed with creating my homestead and gardens, concern for job safety has evolved from non-existent current position as an instructor of the noble art of growing your own food, imparting safe working habits has become a mission and duty. What could possibly be dangerous safely ensconced in the tranquility of my garden? The soft, deeply turned soil, perfectly loosened to allow the roots easy penetration, was more than likely broken up with sharp steel imple ments. Whether using a sharpened spade-shaped shovel or the rapidly rotating tines on a gaspowered roto-tiller, our soft toes are no match when directing as much force as possible at targeted let alone bare feet, are out of the question when considering gar den attire. At a bare minimum, closed-toe sneakers should be worn, with steel toe combat boot probably recommended by the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) guidelines. The various denizens of the natural world all have their bag of tricks when feeling threatened. I am amazed at the tenderness of thin-skinned guests to my great out-of-doors when facing down the poison arsenal of mere and no-see-um welts, not to mention bee stings or scorpion zolts. Long-sleeve shirts and canvas jeans preclude the major ity of itches. Chemical repellants, sprayed on a paper towel and then applied sparingly to outer clothes and exposed skin. Timing is everything, with most biting bugs looking to snack on us right around sunset. The most inconvenient safety chore during a cardio session in the garden on a hot, humid afternoon would be a dust mask. Dry soil will emit particulate of untold composition. Tossing granular fertilizer warrants an awareness of wind direction and pity for all those downstream from the dust cloud. Diatomaceous earth, an insect control, is jagged microscopic silica skeletal remains of diatom algae, akin to ground-up glass. My primary procrastinator when planning to muck out the chicken coop is the airborne manure powder. Gardening is the oldest and most popular active hobby in the history of our species. The im mediate enjoyment in an idyllic setting must be slightly tempered with safety measure to ensure future enjoyment. Have fun, grow safe! 6TH ANNUAL SHRED EVENT 400 Park Avenue South, Suite 120 | Winter Park 407.455.1983 | CharyliStores.comPark Avenues newest womens clothing boutique brings West Coast cool and East Coast sophistication to downtown Winter Park.

If known to be there, he said, the cameras could possibly deter criminal activity, but also limit the amount of intelligence the department can gain from the footage, which is continuously recorded, but not live monitored, except during large-scale public events. Park Avenue shopper Jennifer Green says she doesnt view the cameras as an invasion of her pri vacy. If people dont have anything to hide than it doesnt matter, she said. I think it only ensures that if something does happen that it can be investigated. Winter Park resident Paul Vonder Heide disagrees. For people who like [cameras], it gives them a  false sense of security, that the camera will protect them, he wrote in a let ter to the editor. For people  who do not, it is an invasion of privacy, over-the-top big brother  govern ment snooping on everything every citizen does, and scares good  people from Winter Park because they think the city's sur veillance cams  mean that Winter Park is a high-crime area. Winter Park resident Casey Barton can see how some may view the camera as a big brother phenomenon, but says he views it as sign of the times. Im not worried about crime on Park Avenue, he said. I think its just that were on the cuttingedge of technology and that this is something the city can afford to do to help with public safety. Carson Gray, manager at Luma on Park, says he thinks the camer as will add to the security his restaurant has already been working on for years, installing their own surveillance cameras to monitor their valet service. He says the footage from their cameras has in the past helped substantiate claims where cars have been hit outside the restaurant, and driv ers have left the scene. We dont have many people ask about them because not many people realize that theyre there, and if they do, they understand the purpose, he said. Winter Park Chamber of Com merce President Patrick Chapin says he hasnt had any residents or business owners complain to the Chamber about the cameras. He says he believes that the vast number of people, when they see the cameras, recognize that they are precautionary and for shop pers and diners safety, saying the cameras are more likely to de ter crime than deter business. For the safety of our commu nity, I dont think it impacts the ambiance or charm of Park Av enue, he said. When the legality of surveil lance cameras has been brought to court, it has been ruled that the public has no expectation of privacy on the public street and sidewalk, so the silent surveil lance recordings are legal.Other communities on boardThough other local cities, such as Maitland, Oviedo and Winter Springs, do not currently utilize surveillance cameras, police cap tains from each department say if and when the cities further de velop their downtown cores, they would consider installing them. Winter Springs Chief of Police Kevin Brunelle said his department is currently in the infant stages of looking into grants to install surveillance cameras in the city. Technology-wise, it is the way of the future for us to be able to His department already uses dashboard cameras in 90 percent of its police cars, with surveillance cameras being the next step. Everybody speaks up about constitutional rights, but you dont have the right to not be videotaped while breaking the law, he said.

Page 6 Thursday, April 5, 2012 Winter Park / Maitland Observer A spot in the NCAA Top 25 is a rarity among UCFs big three sports. Cracking the top 15 is even rarer. In the past few weeks, the Knights baseball team has man aged both, rising steadily in the ranks to hit No. 14 on the tide of a 23-6, 5-1 start to the season. That impressive record in cludes a string of four straight wins in a whirlwind tour last week that ended with the Knights outlasting Houston in a 3-1 extrainnings win. That win closed out a three-game sweep of Houston, their second series win to start Conference USA play. But most of the Knights wins havent even been close, with blowouts becoming the routine. In March they won six games by 8 runs or more. And they owe that massive run differential to an experienced team that has carried a powerhouse core of players over from the last season. Ronnie Richardson, Dar nell Sweeney, D.J. Hicks and Ryan Breen were regulars on the scoreboard last year, and theyre giving more of the same to the Knights. Against Houston on April 1, the slowly but were the heroes of the game by the end, with Richardson and Sweeney scoring in the top of the tenth, and Hicks and Chris Taladay adding an RBI each and combining to put the icing on the Knights win. The Knights took a trip to Mi ami Wednesday night at press time in a revenge match against the Hurricanes who beat them 3-2 in their last meeting. When they return home Friday, theyll host UAB with a 6:30 p.m. three-game series. RRollins rebounds The Tars are 19-10 overall, but struggling in Sunshine State Con ference play with a 2-4 record heading deeper into the season. They rebounded from a threegame losing streak with a 6-2 trouncing of Tampa on March 31, thanks to four hitters getting two hits apiece. Boston Langley jacked a tworun shot out of the park in the second for some insurance runs, but the Tars already had all they needed to beat Tampa. Starter Brett Mueller went seven innings, giving up six hits for the win. That prevented a sweep by Tampa and gave the Tars their second confer ence win of the season. Theyll look to build on that win with a three-game series at Eckerd in St. Petersburg. That starts at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 5, followed by a doubleheader at noon and 3 p.m. Friday, April 6. In battles against teams from odd parts of the state, the Wild cats have had their troubles, but on the baseball diamond against district foes, theyve dominated. After a tough week, Winter Park (10-6, 6-1) emerged with two loss es but a largely untarnished dis trict record. They fell to Bartram Trail 6-4 on March 27 and Stanton from Jacksonville 3-2 on March 28. But against local teams theyve had little trouble, with three straight trouncings under their belt in the middle of March. They beat Colonial 11-0, then again 9-1, and then took down Freedom on The Wildcats took on Bishop Moore at press time Wednesday night, and will hit the road for the next few games.

Park Ave. in Winter Park. The Ancient Olive specializes in the sale of olive oils and balsamics from many parts of the world, such as sells oil paintings, European dinnerware, linens, pewter and gifts.

Page 16 Thursday, April 5, 2012 Winter Park / Maitland Observer OOpinions If youre given a speeding ticket and forget to pay it for long enough, you may now be subject to a strip search. Thats a rather extreme example, but one thats now legally allowed thanks to a anyone arrested for any reason. Considering that America has the largest population of incarcer ated residents in the world, thats an awful lot of humiliation about to happen. jailed each year in the United ity opinion on the ruling, which split directly down political lines with the court. Dont think youll be among comes from a seemingly unlikely was arrested and strip-searched processed. He found out the hard way what a clerical error can cost. Florence seemed an unlikely Philadelphia car dealership, he by his wife, when she was pulled over for speeding. When police noticed he had an outstanding arrested, even though he had a court document in his possession proving hed paid it. Hed kept it, cisely to prevent this type of mix way, with proof that he should be free to go, he was arrested in son anyway. When he arrived at jail, he was strip-searched. When he was moved to another jail in another county, he was strip-searched again. It was humiliating, Flor made me feel like less of a man. He was in jail for more than free when the courts discovered stating that his Fourth Amend ment right against unlawful search was violated. Despite the obvious incompetence displayed in the arrest and treatment of a non-criminal the courts are in no position to second-guess the judgments of they are. They are some of the very few in a position to second guess the judgment of corrections case. They simply failed to do so. Citing some of the more dangerous examples on hand, included terrorist bomber Timotor. The implication being that since we have examples of ar restees committing worse crimes than those they were arrested for, anyone who is arrested for any reason even non-criminal reasons is immediately suspected of being in the act of committing search everybody whos put in handcuffs? G. Breyer wrote about his own searched after being arrested at an anti-war protest, a driver strip searched after driving with rider strip searched after riding a bicycle without an audible bell. In states with some stricter laws, someone could conceivably be strip searched after feeding the homeless, for violating a leash law or for not using a turn signal. Florence thought police went too far in searching his naked body for drugs and weapons after he was wrongly arrested for a civil infraction he hadnt even committed. According to the resting him wasnt far enough. Our Observation Letters to the editor SSend your thoughts (400 words or less) to Managing EEditor Jenny Andreasson at editor@observernewspapers.com RRavaudage will shine Thank you for the article concerning the Winter Park Commission meeting in reference to the Ravaudage development the area and have been looking forward to its completion for years. It would be a positive improvement for that area of Winter Park and would provide many job opportunities for citizens. Accordingly, I dont understand why commissioner Carolyn Cooper said she was worried that the rights of nearby property owners werent being respected in terms of impact to their properties and businesses by the large development. As one of the citizens affected, Im sure that the long term impact will be positive, not negative, as her thinking seems to invalues in the area will increase, shopping will be well within walking distance, and the area, which is now not eye-pleasing at all, will basically shine in comparison. I researched the air curtain burner proposed by developer Dan Bellows. Its an excellent solution. I suggest that all Commission members research its use and affects. Im sure no one will then have reservations and will do what must be done eliminate debris. The million dollars saved could then be used to make the development even better in some way. One million dollars saved could translate into many employment opportunities. Even if burning does cause some temporary smoke conditions, it should be well known by our community leaders that true progress does not come without some short-term inconveniences. To think otherwise would be tantamount to living in Florida and thinking one would never suffer the incon venience caused by a hurricane. One more thing its being cattycornered to our present successful area, the Winter Park Village, will be a great expansion of that type of shopping and living area. In the future I can even foresee funds being allocated to build a walkover bridge at the intersection of Lee Road unencumbered access between the two without the hassle of trying to cross heavily travelled roads. Donald EE. Long Winter Park RReasons for apathy are obvious reasons that I wont go into, but at least a number of you are aware of why. As some of you may remember, the Council passed an ordinance to allow seven-story buildings within the CRA signatures, whatever was required, to not build above four stories and have a refer endum. The council relented and removed the ordinance rather than have it go to ref erendum, which they knew the petitioners would prevail. I now see that youre trying you are basically saying is, we thumb our nose at the public and do what we want. the CRA and you wonder why! Prior to the petition, the city had to hold a council meeting at a basketball court are came out to protest not only the height, but also the general CRA debt that the city would incur and their whole CRA methodology. After that meeting it was like all of the people who made presentations could have been talking to a wall. The message received by the public was, we will do what we want, and you, the public, have no say. The same could be said for all of the fake workshops the city held, a sham. the CRA and you wonder why! During that time period, there were citizens who came to speak to the council. One was a city planner who does work center expert and the list goes on. They all   least three occasions to inform the council that his staff performed an analysis on the tainable. In any event it didnt matter who came to the Council, it had the same effect as talking to a blank wall. Today with as little as has been done, the city has to put top of that, the city put a tax on everyone to cover a shortfall. Im sorry, I called it a tax, the city called it a fee, my checkbook doesnt know the difference, and you wonDuring all of the years that the CRA has been around, the citys once-a-month newsletter, never, maybe once, mentioned the issues of the CRA. Has anyone ever told the public in a newsletter how much debt the city has? The booklets that the on what it takes in, but you needed an accountants degree and calls to the city to get the real numbers, and you wonder At one point there were a group of CEOs and director-level people that wanted to help the city and advise on the CRA, another blank wall of hearing. I was the Orange County representative member of the three-person CRA advisor board. I quit after a year because the mayor refused to call a meeting, and you wonder why tered discretion for the council to make decisions and spend money and pass it off limits.

About RRoney: HH arvard42Distinguished Prof, E E m.UCF 2004 Fla. Alliance for the Arts award (Assisted by beautiful wife Joy RRoney) Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? cynic, but a skeptic. Perhaps that is a dis tinction without a difference, but I shall attempt to make it nonetheless. A skeptic questions the facts, a cynic questions we call America is inexorably moving from one of skepticism to cynicism. We pat ourselves on our backs (and they say, the best money can buy. But that has always been the case. America has never been a democracy where vested interests didnt have the inherent Constitution was adopted, only white, male property owners, by and large, were eligible to vote. People of color, women, and any white men without property were out of luck and out of the process voting requirements started to change na tionwide so that all white men could vote. Thems that got have always worked advantage. Understandably, they want to keep or increase what they have. This translates into tax advantages, outright government largesse, as well as less regulatory oversight whatever can be secured by preferential access (political through the political process. The question becomes one of balance. How do we balance the legitimate inter ests of the individual vis--vis the equally legitimate interest of the state (working that my skepticism is moving to cynicism. ingly rigged (thumb-on-the-scale prefer I feel the cynicism in America growing much as the songwriter Leonard Cohen articulates in his classic song, Everybody Everybody knows that the dice are loaded Everybody knows that the war is over Everybody knows the good guys lost The poor stay poor, the rich get rich Thats how it goes Everybody knows. Court election of George W. Bush. We see it in government subsidies for Americas petroleum corporations. We experience it in a revenue code that taxes labor at higher rates than investment income. And corporations, according to our conser when it comes to speech and political contributions. But nowhere is our democracy so clearly under attack as by Republican efforts to suppress voter turnout. Repub lican-controlled state legislatures all over America are following Floridas example of reducing early voting and making new voter registration initiatives so onerous him if voter fraud was a problem, or was rampant in Florida. He stated unequivocally that it was not. Florida legislators fear of a non-existent problem to change early voting hours as well as registration drives. Ertel declined to speculate as to League of Women Voters has stopped registration drives. There is no widespread voter fraud in Florida. Republicans are attempting to suppress black, Hispanic, poor and elderly voting. Why? To skew elections in favor of the Republican Right. no sense of decency? The answer is apparent. Jepson is a 24-year resident of Florida. HHes scally conservative, socially liberal, likes art and embraces diversity of opinion. RReach him at Jepson@MEEDIAmerica.USS The worlds great religions espouse a principle weve come to call the Golden Rule. Its a universal call for all humans to treat others as theyd like to be treated. Its not a complicated concept. Yet its sometimes carry out in practice because in any given situation we may have a number of values competing for prime consideration. Ethicists refer to it as having to stack our imperatives.  provides a classic example. A young man is dead, and his killer, free, not charged with any crime. that hard to believe. Impossible, in fact.  How can it be called justice when an adult, whos been told by a police dispatcher to back off, continues to pursue, confronts and shoots an unarmed youth? As a parent, I can relate to the angst of Trayvons parents. And so can millions of other onlookers around the world who are watch ing news reports and making comments via social media. But it gets trickier.  Collectively we Americans believe in justice for all, which includes a value weve labeled innocent until proven guilty. We believe in due process and being tried before a jury of ones we may be about what has hap serves the right to make his case before a court of law. Its only there that all the competing facts and allegations can be appropri ately assembled and evaluated. But theres a problem. For the past seven years weve had a law on the books in Florida the not only gives amazing liberties to any who simply feel threat ened by someone else, but that also puts severe limits on the abil bring charges. In the absence of credible on-the-scene evidence to the contrary, a killers testi mony may be all thats needed to keep the case out of the courts those ultimately responsible claim they couldnt arrest him and still uphold the law.   In an ideal world, the ideal citizens would sit back and let the wheels of ideal government turn at the ideal speed and produce ideal justice. But we dont live in an ideal world. Experience has taught us that for a variety of reasons, government doesnt always deliver on its promise of justice for all.  Recognizing the ability of gov ernment to get it wrong, our Con stitutions First Amendment (in grants  freedom of speech, free dom of the press, freedom to peaceably assemble and freedom to petition the government provisions have increasingly been out the nation.  With all of the foregoing in Council of Central Florida (whose members include representatives from the Buddhist, Christian, every level to move quickly and transparently in seeking justice call upon all citizens to continue, in a decidedly determined yet respectful and peaceful manner, to demand that government decision makers not rest until justice has been served and until trust has been restored. We urge our governor and legislators to expeditiously revisit the law that allowed this terrible tragedy to occur. In other words, the Interfaith Council has asked that everyone follow the Golden Rule as we seek justice for all.James Cofn is executive director of the Interfaith Council of Central Florida.Trayvon, justice and the Golden Rule JAmMEsS CCOFFIN Guest Writer James CCofn George Zimmerman deserves the right to make his case before a court of law.
