Local politicians took the August and No vember elections for a test-drive at the East Side Regional Hob Nob on June 26 at UCF, answering questions that could only come lo cally. The event, a catch-most roundup of pol iticians competing for posts in Orange and Seminole counties, fanned tables of candidates out underneath the Bright House Net works Stadium bleachers like an impromptu meet and greet. We had a monsoon come through just as we were setting up, said Cory Skeates, pres ident of the Oviedo-Winter Springs Regional Chamber of Commerce, which co-hosted the event with the East Orlando Chamber of Commerce. We had some candidates calling asking if they should even come. But they came in droves, as grip and grins traded time with sales pitches as would-be representatives from the city level to the U.S. Senate turned out to make their case for can didacy. More than 50 candidates and more out who will be representing their area. But what kept them on the edge of their seats for four hours was a straw poll that summed up the leanings of nearly 450 voters from the two counties. break with larger polls, particularly in presi dential candidate polls for the November election. Though President Barack Obama led Republican challenger Mitt Romney by a margin of 48 percent to 43 percent in a July 2 Gallup poll of 3,050 registered voters, Rom ney won the East Side Regional poll by 74 percent to 22 percent, with the remainder un decided. That tally comes with 444 votes cast. Winter Parks past was nothing to be proud of and naming a park after Dr. King does little to erase that.Page 18Letters to the editor LifestylesTwenty years of antiquing expertise converged to create Lily Lace Antique Market, which opened in Maitland.Page 9 Senior ObserverWinter Park resident John Raaen recently released his book Intact, an eyewitness account of D-Day.Page 11 CalendarVegetarians and animal advocates will host the Independence for the Animals potluck picnic on July 7.Page 8 CALL US TODAY FOR A COPY OF Your Guide to Social Security Bob@aSafeHarbor.com | ASafeHarbor.com(407) 644-6646 Learn more visit www.ss.vip2site.com When faced with stormy nancial waters, seek...

Armed with gloves, hats, buckets and bug spray, volunteers from Full Sail University and Summit Church coordinated by lead ers from Keep Winter Park Beautiful got to work at clearing out 15 feet of pathway to make a walkable path. Were working to restore it to its natural integrity, said Tim Maslow, executive direc tor for Keep Winter Park Beautiful (KWPB). We want to make [Mead Garden] an asset for the community, a destination. Cindy Hasenau, a Mead representative, tions coming to the wetlands in the garden. The garden was recently awarded a $40,000 grant from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con servation Commission to put toward water quality improvements in the wetlands and Lake Lillian, which once fell into disarray as a dumping ground. This was the third trip out for volunteers from Summit Church, working hard on re storing both areas around the wetlands and the community garden. Green-shirted vol unteers followed a pamphlet provided by KWPB to show them which invasive species to remove and which native plants could stay, as they weeded through the dreary late morning.

Similarly, in the race for one of Flor idas two U.S. Senate seats, longtime democratic Sen. Bill Nelson led in a June 27 Quinnipiac poll by a 41 per cent to 40 percent margin over chal lenger and U.S. Rep. Connie Mack. Six candidates are vying for that position. At the hob nobs poll, Mack won 226 votes to Nelsons 98. from the national average is just a fac tor of the typical demographics of political hobnobs. For some reason or another, espe cially depending on where [the hob nob] is held, you tend to get more Re publicans than Democrats, Skeates said. From the votes it looked like it was a heavy Seminole County crowd. As opposed to Orange County, Seminole County has historically leaned heavily Republican, further accounting for the deviation. Case in point: In the U.S. Senate race, the combined four Republican candidates won 311 of the 417 total votes cast. results are going to be, Skeates said. I certainly dont think Romney is going to get 74 percent of the vote. But at the local level, the results could be more meaningful, with voters representing a smaller area that more closely resembles the local electorate. Ted Edwards, who currently occupies the Orange County Commissions District 5 seat, won the straw poll with 141 votes against his sole opponent Gina Duncan who gathered 76 votes. That was very gratifying, Edwards said. Were just hoping to continue to have the support of the voters in east Orange County for the work weve been doing. Although Edwards was ahead in the straw poll, Duncan said she was able to collect the 1,100 signa tures needed to qualify as a candidate in less than 90 days because of her message, which revolves around bringing government to the people some thing she said resonates with her constituents who are not always close to where the Commission meets downtown. I plan to host a town hall meeting once a month in all areas of the district, said the retired banker whos now a silent partner in a travel business. The district is so large now with 119,000 people. They should know their commissioner, and I should know their issues. Regardless of early monsoons and congressional sessions that kept some national-level politicians out of the event, Skeates said the hob nob was a big success. We were really pleased, Skeates said. A lot of the hob nobs Ive been to, you come out and its but four showed. We werent sure what to expect be cause of the weather, but everybody who said they would show up showed up. It worked out just per fectly.HOB NOB | More than 50 candidates showed despite the rain CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE Baldwin cheers nations birthday PHOTOS BY G.K.

A communication controversy seems to have been put to rest by the Winter Park City Commission print involved. That thing has more warnings than a Viagra commercial, Com missioner Tom McMacken said of a new mandatory disclaimer aimed to keep mass emails on the straight and narrow. claimer came in response to a series of newsletter emails that Commissioner Carolyn Cooper had sent out to a list of recipients detailing her opinions about city issues. None of those communications were deemed unethical, but fears that she may have been mistaken as speaking for the entire Commission mass emails or mailers. Other com missioners had also received the emails, which they said may have the potential to violate the Govern ment in the Sunshine Act. The new set of legalese rules for commissioners added a disclaimer to all written communica tion warning recipients that the opinions stated only belonged to the commissioner sending them. That will only apply to mailers or emails that will be read by 10 or more recipients. Mayor Ken Bradley wanted to be sure that the rules werent so re strictive that they couldnt send out holiday greeting cards without a le gal disclaimer. If you wanted to send out a Happy New Year message would you want to be able to do that too? Bradley asked Leary. That would be allowed, City Manager Randy Knight said. And that was the end of it, as far as McMacken hoped. I personally would like to put this thing to bed, he said. I know weve talked about it and talked about it and talked about it. But Commissioner Steven Leary had an idea that could solve the issue at once: Getting the commis We can kind of do away with a had a page on the citys website, Leary said. Each commissioner could post a thought on the page at any time. I dont think it helps the discussion but it would give them the opportunity to post on any issue at any time. Knight didnt comment on the idea of individual pages for each commissioner. McMacken was hoping the issue In the spirit of the last conver sation, guys its just [time for] moving forward, he said.

I sat down with Connie What inspired you to start this business? Both of us had been dealers at other antique stores, and have also worked part-time at other (antique) stores. We decided we then when this location came up we went for it. We love the Mai tland area. What type of antiques do you sell? We have Victorian, Shabby Chic, French, English, China and a lot of vintage that people use to decorate their homes. We have a lot of items that are great for add ing a vintage touch to your home. We look expensive, but were Where do your antiques come from? We depend a lot on serendip ity Ill often shop some of the local antique markets. We also have over 40 dealers in here. For instance, one lady has an es tate sales business, and she has a space here. Others may have cleaned out their grandmothers house. Our items are coming from a variety of places. other antique stores? our style is. Our store is new and its clean. It isnt too junky we have a more elegant atmosphere in here. We also have a variety of high-end antiques and then rea sonably priced antiques. How many items does Lily Lace We have thousands, but its constantly changing because dealers are coming in everyday. How did you choose the name Lily Lace? We both like the connection to Lake Lily, and the lace ties in with antiques. Why did you choose Maitland? Its a great place for antiqu ing, and we wanted to capture the market we knew already existed. Its also nice because there are four of us (antique stores) that are helping each other out. Were always sending people back and forth between the other stores. What is the oldest or most interesting piece you have now? I think some of our items should be in museums. We have a French cross that comes from a renovated graveyard in France its a couple hundred years old. We have a 19th century tus sie-mussie with mother of pearl handle. Its a piece that would be used in a wedding for a bride to dies would have one of these next to them on their table and they would use it to ring their help.

Bloody Omaha, said John Raaen, a retired U.S. Army major general and Winter Park resident. It was a pretty gory landing, Raaen said. It was like a sea of lead. Bullets were cracking by, so many of them that it was just a continuous sound. But he was one of the lucky ones. Raaen was an Army cap tain the day his battalion landed on Omaha Beach during the Nor mandy Invasion on June 6, 1944, during World War II. Most of the soldiers that day werent afraid, though, he said. As Raaen jumped beach he was exhilarated for two reasons: he was too young to be lieve death could happen to him, and he was so highly trained and ready, he was bursting to put his knowledge and preparation to work. You dont know how you could possibly make it, but you do make it, he said. When youre excited you can do anything. Raaens new book Intact, which was published in May, takes readers through the hours before the invasion began, the race from his boat to shore and across the beach, and the battles of his book comes from the fact that his, the 5th Ranger Infantry Battalion, was one of few to land on Omaha Beach intact of all its members a fact that helped in their success that day. While Raaen has been working the start of his book really began just a month after his experience, in July 1944. He was, as he called it, a loose cannon. He didnt have an ex act job, and so he was given ones was a college-educated man a graduate from West Point so he was assigned to write up the decorations for medals won dur ing the invasion, then as the per son to write the after-action report for the invasion month, and last as the contact person for men with the War Department Historian questions about what happened that day, and if he couldnt an could. Raaen would sit in on the interviews, and absorbed many details of that day. All inspired what happened on D-Day, and the basis for Intact. Years later he became the goto veteran for WWII D-Day his torians looking for an informed, thoughtful account from someone who experienced the invasion. Whats in this book is a gold mine, said Patrick ODonnell, an author whos written eight books on military history, some helped by Raaens interviews. Its his tory trapped in amber. ally there. And the book contains not just his memories decades later Raaen is now 90 and can recall single moments and details with crisp clarity but the fresh a month after the event. Hes an eyewitness and an in telligent, perceptive eyewitness, director of the Military History Institute at the Briscoe Center for ticipated in the momentous event of the invasion of Normandy that he was at the crux, the place that the breakthrough was made from Omaha Beach, it gives him a unique perspective that other writers cant bring to it, author book is very revealing.

Page 15 It takes more than a crossword puzzle and a bowl of blueberries to build a healthy brain. Both are good, but chances are people dont know why or even if what they hear about these, or other brain boosters, are true. Association Central and North Florida Chapter will launch an innovative brain health initiative focused on providing informa tion that separates myth from it, people at any age can become knowledgeable and motivated to make brain health a priority throughout life. A lot of information about the brain and brain health exists, but much of it is scattered and information about the brain and brain health readily available to the public. It is supported by a $185,000 grant from the Winter Park Health Foundation, which has supported brain-boosting initiatives in local communities for more than a decade. science out to people so they can more clearly understand the nuances of brain health, and be inspired to make healthy changes Ideas, and Compass Research will be working closely with the Alzheimers Association on this endeavor. Education will be a big part of the project. A website dedicated to brain health will highlight the latest in brain research simplify ing it so the public can under stand. Book reviews, interactive brain health activities, information about how to become your own brain health coach, and how to create a brain health club are some of the ideas under develop ment for the website. health champions will be sought ries and the steps they have taken to live a brain healthy lifestyle can be showcased for others to health champions who are of healthy or experiencing memory loss, but who model domains of brain health in their everyday lives. One example is a retired phy sician, Nor man Wall, 97, who gathers for lunch each week with a group of professionals including physicians, journalists, clergy and businessmen to challenge themselves mentally by debating the issues of the day. And because learning should be a lifelong endeavor, we will identify brain health champions still in school, especially students who participate and excel in activities outside the typical school experience, such as young inventors or kids with amazing hobbies, to hopefully inspire other kids to get involved in brain healthy activities. Further education, primar ily in the Maitland, Eatonville and Winter Park areas, will be provided through presentations and webinars. Dr. Ira Goodman, director of neurosciences at the Compass Clinic, will serve as one of the brain health champions and be a principle presenter, along with Beverly Engel and Linda Hayes Gallegos. And the Alzheimers Association plans to work with other community organizations because sometimes getting people motivated to change behavior takes an entire community. but in the meantime, if you want to get a head start on building a healthy brain, go ahead and eat your blueberries, keep up your exercise and if you have done crossword puzzles your whole life, try something totally new, like studying how a steam engine works. Stretch out your brain by thinking, just like you would stretch your muscles when lifting weights. Your brain will thank you. Call 1-800-272-3900 for more information.Beverly Engel is the program coordinator for the Alzheimers Association Central and North Florida Chapter. Reach her at 407-951-7992, ext. 114, or Beverly.

Since activities directors are rarely Jewish, the the elderly of all faiths in Orange and Seminole counties, designed a booklet to the primary holidays and explains how to celebrate them, and what to serve. Like many cultures, food means everything to the Jewish resident, says Nancy Ludin, executive director of the Jewish Pavilion. You can imagine how thrilled residents are to eat challah (egg bread) and noodle pudding after feasting on institutional foods. guide is that it encourages facilities directors to look at the cultural heritages of all of their residents and attempt to meet their needs. Most residents will prefer eth nic foods compared to the boiled chicken normally served.

Nancy Ludin was integral in supplying and revising the contents, while keeping the focus on the Pavilions mission, as well as on toler ance and understanding of peoples of all backgrounds. Ludin was assisted by members of the Pavilion board, who added a personal touch with family recipes and the shar contains information about welcoming the Jewish resident, kashruth, the Jewish calendar, Sabbath and holidays.

Page 18 Opinions As I write this column, Im sitting in a restaurant on Park Av enue. Its an appropriate setting. When I wrote my column on Cottrells back in May, I took its owner and my neighbor, David Elliott, to lunch on Park Avenue, to visit a few businesses and see an exhibit by the Winter Park Historical Association. One of his remarks that day caught me the vibrancy of the street, and the number of people out and about, in the shops and restaurants. We all run the risk of taking for granted anything we see regularly, and that was a setting experience Im now quite used to. Mr. Elliott doesnt get down to Park Avenue a lot these days so his observation gave me oppor tunity to see it through his eyes, recognize its truth and appreci ate it. We are fortunate in Winter Park for many things, and while I realize it, its also nice to get gentle reminders. mix of locally owned shops and restaurants has been a big moti vator behind my website launch hoping to celebrate our unique environment with truly unique, canned ideas and clone deal sites based in Seattle, Chicago or elsewhere. Last month I launched a com You may remember last Novembers Small Business Saturday from American Express, which followed the now oft heralded Black Friday.

Whats local? your home. (At my house I often partner wants me to drive more than a mile or two! I joke about an invisible fence, a collar which shocks me when I venture too far away from home.) I provided information on the idea to the Mayor and all City Commissioners. I understand it was mentioned at the last commission meeting, but at the time of writing this have received no other information. Im hopeful the city may want to get behind it in whatever way may be possible and seem appropriate to them. I am happy to say that with has some pretty enthusiastic local business supporters. If everyone is on board, then in the future everyday, which would be a great local business owners, says Mary Ann Gil of Blooms of Winter Park, a local am going to put up banners think others should as well. Can you imagine if all of Winter Park participated? Businesses would prosper the city would collect more tax dollars! From such a more to our customers. Lynne Martin, one of the originators of Artistree Gifts in College Park notes, Its so encouraging to see how many people support this grassroots awareness to how important it is to support local, small business instead of the box stores!

Over the years and through many moves, they lost contact. Fast forward to April 2010 when Sindy Levine and Diane Meltz bumped into one another once again while getting manicures. They planned and met for a catchup lunch. At lunch Sindy took out her BlackBerry to make note of a book Diane had liked. Having just gotten that very same phone, Diane was interested in how Sindy was using it. She watched closely as an alphabetical list was opened and there it wasright above Books she spotted another of Sindys notes...APRONS. Aprons? Diane asked. Whats that? Sindy explained that she had a list of ideas for aprons to make and perhaps sell one day. Diane excitedly told her that just the night before she dreamed that she was making aprons and selling them in Europe! Thats where and when their collaboration began. They dont sell in Europe yet, but they have had much success and are very encouraged. After one year designing, making and selling the high fashion, reversible aprons, The Apron Cafe has morphed into the Sophisticated Peacock. The new company is a natural progression into real clothes. Diane and Sindy are very excited to launch it with reversible wrap skirts that go from day to night, from golf to lunch or for just stylishly going shopping. The tunic is their brand new baby! Comfy and attering, it goes over leggings, capris and even bathing suits. The tunics can be special ordered, or you can nd them today at The Blue Door on Park Avenue. Diane, a former student at FIT (The Fashion Institute of Technology), does most of the buying and designing. Sindy does the sewing. She learned her skill set at a young age from her mom and her grandfather, a European tailor.

While many expect nothing in return, remem bering folk by naming parks, amenities after them seems like a better move, but also one that requires moderation. What seems troubling in this process, if I un derstand correctly, is the formation of a committee to make a recommendation and when they present the work product, the re action was a bit of, thanks, dont confuse us with your recommendation, we had something else in mind and will do that instead. charge given to them. As for people being amazed and appalled by racial comments, I did not see them but can only imagine. However they should take some time to walk through and engage with some of the volunteers at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center. Hear ing about the racial actions and activity that took place in Winter Park in my lifetime may just be an ugly little secret that people should be aware of. Perhaps I should not have been surprised when I toured the center maybe I was naive to think that activities like those did not happen in Winter Park, but they did. I was rather embarrassed when I left the Center and was not as proud of Winter Park and its past as I was when I entered. For those that have not visited, take the time to visit Hannibal Square Heritage Center and draw your own conclusions. Winter what happened in Winter Parks past was nothing to be proud of and naming a park after Dr. King does little to erase that. John P.

If that fact had not been true, I think the Pilgrims would have turned their ships around and sailed home. Once our forebears started governing themselves in Virginia, Massachusetts, etc., people in the countries they left began to compare their lives with ours, and theirs were often found wanting. Frances revolution was some 14 years after ours, and England began to modify its monarchy in such ways that the Crown remains today only a national symbol. America, our sweet land of liberty has inexorably changed, as does a beautiful young girl who grows into a hand some, intelligent woman. We have shared the burdens of a weary Old World, in the ways that a solicitous son might look after his care-ridden father. World War I the war to end all slaughter seldom experienced in all human history, and for what? Learning little or nothing from WWI, warring nations created the political climate that generated another World War, which used advanced weapons capable of killing whole populations at a stroke. Various and sundry smaller wars have come and gone and have left their funereal memories in thousands of U.S. homes. A simple Florida country boy like me must be forgiven if he cant keep score in emblazoned brightest in my thoughts and devotion. We hear much of mistakes made by the U.S. who expects perfection? My own mistakes can often be remedied by me. However, macrocosmic international mistakes are not amendable save by the unlikely united goodwill of world powers.

Pikes Peak and looked back upon the prairie land that I had driven across the previous two days. I have been up Pikes Peak several times in recent years, and each visit brings back to me the majesty of our country when seen from nearly 3 miles above the earth. All of this is mine, I thought and its yours as well. During many years of singing in Europe, I never forgot that I was, in fact, an ambassador from the United States, and that my actions would bring either honor thought guided me wherever I was.

Local politicians took the August and No vember elections for a test-drive at the East Side Regional Hob Nob on June 26 at UCF, answering questions that could only come lo cally. The event, a catch-most roundup of pol iticians competing for posts in Orange and Seminole counties, fanned tables of candi dates out underneath the Bright House Net works Stadium bleachers like an impromptu meet and greet. We had a monsoon come through just as we were setting up, said Cory Skeates, pres ident of the Oviedo-Winter Springs Regional Chamber of Commerce, which co-hosted the event with the East Orlando Chamber of Commerce. We had some candidates calling asking if they should even come. But they came in droves, as grip and grins traded time with sales pitches as would-be representatives from the city level to the U.S. Senate turned out to make their case for can didacy. More than 50 candidates and more out who will be representing their area. But what kept them on the edge of their seats for four hours was a straw poll that summed up the leanings of nearly 450 voters from the two counties. break with larger polls, particularly in presi dential candidate polls for the November election. Though President Barack Obama led Republican challenger Mitt Romney by a margin of 48 percent to 43 percent in a July 2 Gallup poll of 3,050 registered voters, Rom ney won the East Side Regional poll by 74 percent to 22 percent, with the remainder un decided. That tally comes with 444 votes cast. Winter Parks past was nothing to be proud of and naming a park after Dr. King does little to erase that.

Similarly, in the race for one of Flor idas two U.S. Senate seats, longtime democratic Sen. Bill Nelson led in a June 27 Quinnipiac poll by a 41 per cent to 40 percent margin over chal lenger and U.S. Rep. Connie Mack. Six candidates are vying for that position. At the hob nobs poll, Mack won 226 votes to Nelsons 98. from the national average is just a fac tor of the typical demographics of po litical hobnobs. For some reason or another, espe cially depending on where [the hob nob] is held, you tend to get more Re publicans than Democrats, Skeates said. From the votes it looked like it was a heavy Seminole County crowd. As opposed to Orange County, Seminole County has historically leaned heavily Republican, further accounting for the deviation. Case in point: In the U.S. Senate race, the combined four Republican candidates won 311 of the 417 total votes cast. results are going to be, Skeates said. I certainly dont think Romney is going to get 74 percent of the vote. But at the local level, the results could be more meaningful, with voters representing a smaller area that more closely resembles the local electorate. Ted Edwards, who currently occupies the Orange County Commissions District 5 seat, won the straw poll with 141 votes against his sole opponent Gina Duncan who gathered 76 votes. That was very gratifying, Edwards said. Were just hoping to continue to have the support of the voters in east Orange County for the work weve been doing. Although Edwards was ahead in the straw poll, Duncan said she was able to collect the 1,100 signa tures needed to qualify as a candidate in less than 90 days because of her message, which revolves around bringing government to the people some thing she said resonates with her constituents who are not always close to where the Commission meets downtown. I plan to host a town hall meeting once a month in all areas of the district, said the retired banker whos now a silent partner in a travel business. The district is so large now with 119,000 people. They should know their commissioner, and I should know their issues. Regardless of early monsoons and congressional sessions that kept some national-level politicians out of the event, Skeates said the hob nob was a big success. We were really pleased, Skeates said. A lot of the hob nobs Ive been to, you come out and its but four showed. We werent sure what to expect be cause of the weather, but everybody who said they would show up showed up. It worked out just per fectly. HOB NOB | More than 50 candidates showed despite the rain C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE Baldwin cheers nations birthday PHOTOS BY G.K.

A communication controversy seems to have been put to rest by the Winter Park City Commission print involved. That thing has more warnings than a Viagra commercial, Com missioner Tom McMacken said of a new mandatory disclaimer aimed to keep mass emails on the straight and narrow. claimer came in response to a series of newsletter emails that Commis sioner Carolyn Cooper had sent out to a list of recipients detailing her opinions about city issues. None of those communications were deemed unethical, but fears that she may have been mistaken as speaking for the entire Commission mass emails or mailers. Other com missioners had also received the emails, which they said may have the potential to violate the Govern ment in the Sunshine Act. The new set of legalese rules for commissioners added a dis claimer to all written communica tion warning recipients that the opinions stated only belonged to the commissioner sending them. That will only apply to mailers or emails that will be read by 10 or more recipients. Mayor Ken Bradley wanted to be sure that the rules werent so re strictive that they couldnt send out holiday greeting cards without a le gal disclaimer. If you wanted to send out a Happy New Year message would you want to be able to do that too? Bradley asked Leary. That would be allowed, City Manager Randy Knight said. And that was the end of it, as far as McMacken hoped. I personally would like to put this thing to bed, he said. I know weve talked about it and talked about it and talked about it. But Commissioner Steven Leary had an idea that could solve the issue at once: Getting the commis We can kind of do away with a had a page on the citys website, Leary said. Each commissioner could post a thought on the page at any time. I dont think it helps the discussion but it would give them the opportunity to post on any issue at any time.

In these economic times this has become revenues are down and the general econo services at a bargain cost, we have joined forces with several federal and local law enforcement agencies to join several task force initiatives. These task forces, most of which are funded with federal dollars, typi cally pay the vehicle, overtime and operat ing cost of each participant. We have found our participation increases the ability of of trained investigators in numbers much greater than our own department has avail able. We also share in a percentage of assets that are forfeited as result of task force pros ecutions that have funded Maitland Police Department purchases totaling in the hun dreds of thousands of dollars. These funds have been used to furnish the interior of the new Police Headquarters building, pur chase new weapons, computers, a K-9 dog, and fund the construction of the proposed police boathouse, all without cost to our residents. Here are some details on the four task force initiatives we participate in and IRS/Secret Service Financial Crimes Task Force We have participated in the IRS/Secret Service Financial Crimes Task Force since its inception. This task force initiative con One Maitland investigator is assigned to this initiative. The federal government pays for the investigators vehicle, operat ing expenses and overtime.

A local pharmacy was involved in the distribution of large amounts of oxycodone and its ac tivities were disrupting commerce in a local shopping area. With the aid of the task force and our own investigators, we were able to successfully curtail the nuisance. As with other task force initiatives, the DEA pays for our investigators vehicle, overtime and operating expenses. We also share in the proceeds from asset forfeitures. JHIT Team The most recent task force we have joined is the JHIT Team. The Maitland Po lice Department is a founding member of this task force. The JHIT is a consortium of local municipal law enforcement agencies in Orange and Osceola counties that inves tigate homicides. While Maitland has about one homicide every three years, the homi cide rate in Central Florida remains at an alarming level. These homicides that occur quality of life as a part of the greater Cen tral Florida community. The JHIT task force will allow a large number of trained inves tigators to be available to any municipal ity that has a homicide. The JHIT will also work to solve older open homicide cases.

I sat down with Connie What inspired you to start this business? Both of us had been dealers at other antique stores, and have also worked part-time at other (antique) stores. We decided we then when this location came up we went for it. We love the Mai tland area. What type of antiques do you sell? We have Victorian, Shabby Chic, French, English, China and a lot of vintage that people use to decorate their homes. We have a lot of items that are great for add ing a vintage touch to your home. We look expensive, but were Where do your antiques come from? We depend a lot on serendip ity Ill often shop some of the local antique markets. We also have over 40 dealers in here. For instance, one lady has an es tate sales business, and she has a space here. Others may have cleaned out their grandmothers house. Our items are coming from a variety of places. other antique stores? our style is. Our store is new and its clean. It isnt too junky we have a more elegant atmosphere in here. We also have a variety of high-end antiques and then rea sonably priced antiques. How many items does Lily Lace We have thousands, but its constantly changing because dealers are coming in everyday. How did you choose the name Lily Lace? We both like the connection to Lake Lily, and the lace ties in with antiques. Why did you choose Maitland? Its a great place for antiqu ing, and we wanted to capture the market we knew already ex isted. Its also nice because there are four of us (antique stores) that are helping each other out. Were always sending people back and forth between the other stores. What is the oldest or most inter esting piece you have now? I think some of our items should be in museums. We have a French cross that comes from a renovated graveyard in France its a couple hundred years old. We have a 19th century tus sie-mussie with mother of pearl handle. Its a piece that would be used in a wedding for a bride to dies would have one of these next to them on their table and they would use it to ring their help.

Bloody Omaha, said John Raaen, a retired U.S. Army major general and Winter Park resident. It was a pretty gory landing, Raaen said. It was like a sea of lead. Bullets were cracking by, so many of them that it was just a continuous sound. But he was one of the lucky ones. Raaen was an Army cap tain the day his battalion landed on Omaha Beach during the Nor mandy Invasion on June 6, 1944, during World War II. Most of the soldiers that day werent afraid, though, he said. As Raaen jumped beach he was exhilarated for two reasons: he was too young to be lieve death could happen to him, and he was so highly trained and ready, he was bursting to put his knowledge and preparation to work. You dont know how you could possibly make it, but you do make it, he said. When youre excited you can do anything. Raaens new book Intact, which was published in May, takes readers through the hours before the invasion began, the race from his boat to shore and across the beach, and the battles of his book comes from the fact that his, the 5th Ranger Infantry Battalion, was one of few to land on Omaha Beach intact of all its members a fact that helped in their success that day. While Raaen has been working the start of his book really began just a month after his experience, in July 1944. He was, as he called it, a loose cannon. He didnt have an ex act job, and so he was given ones was a college-educated man a graduate from West Point so he was assigned to write up the decorations for medals won dur ing the invasion, then as the per son to write the after-action report for the invasion month, and last as the contact person for men with the War Department Historian questions about what happened that day, and if he couldnt an could. Raaen would sit in on the interviews, and absorbed many details of that day. All inspired what happened on D-Day, and the basis for Intact. Years later he became the goto veteran for WWII D-Day his torians looking for an informed, thoughtful account from someone who experienced the invasion. Whats in this book is a gold mine, said Patrick ODonnell, an author whos written eight books on military history, some helped by Raaens interviews. Its his tory trapped in amber. ally there. And the book contains not just his memories decades later Raaen is now 90 and can recall single moments and details with crisp clarity but the fresh a month after the event. Hes an eyewitness and an in telligent, perceptive eyewitness, director of the Military History Institute at the Briscoe Center for ticipated in the momentous event of the invasion of Normandy that he was at the crux, the place that the breakthrough was made from Omaha Beach, it gives him a unique perspective that other writers cant bring to it, author book is very revealing.

Page 15 It takes more than a crossword puzzle and a bowl of blueberries to build a healthy brain. Both are good, but chances are people dont know why or even if what they hear about these, or other brain boosters, are true. Association Central and North Florida Chapter will launch an innovative brain health initiative focused on providing informa tion that separates myth from it, people at any age can become knowledgeable and motivated to make brain health a priority throughout life. A lot of information about the brain and brain health exists, but much of it is scattered and information about the brain and brain health readily available to the public. It is supported by a $185,000 grant from the Winter Park Health Foundation, which has supported brain-boosting initiatives in local communities for more than a decade. science out to people so they can more clearly understand the nuances of brain health, and be inspired to make healthy changes Ideas, and Compass Research will be working closely with the Alzheimers Association on this endeavor. Education will be a big part of the project. A website dedicated to brain health will highlight the latest in brain research simplify ing it so the public can under stand. Book reviews, interactive brain health activities, informa tion about how to become your own brain health coach, and how to create a brain health club are some of the ideas under develop ment for the website. health champions will be sought ries and the steps they have taken to live a brain healthy lifestyle can be showcased for others to health champions who are of healthy or experiencing memory loss, but who model domains of brain health in their everyday lives. One example is a retired phy sician, Nor man Wall, 97, who gathers for lunch each week with a group of professionals includ ing physicians, journalists, clergy and businessmen to challenge themselves mentally by debating the issues of the day. And because learning should be a lifelong endeavor, we will identify brain health champions still in school, especially stu dents who participate and excel in activities outside the typical school experience, such as young inventors or kids with amazing hobbies, to hopefully inspire other kids to get involved in brain healthy activities. Further education, primar ily in the Maitland, Eatonville and Winter Park areas, will be provided through presentations and webinars. Dr. Ira Goodman, director of neurosciences at the Compass Clinic, will serve as one of the brain health champi ons and be a principle presenter, along with Beverly Engel and Linda Hayes Gallegos. And the Alzheimers Association plans to work with other community organizations because sometimes getting people motivated to change behavior takes an entire community. but in the meantime, if you want to get a head start on building a healthy brain, go ahead and eat your blueberries, keep up your exercise and if you have done crossword puzzles your whole life, try something totally new, like studying how a steam engine works. Stretch out your brain by thinking, just like you would stretch your muscles when lifting weights. Your brain will thank you. Call 1-800-272-3900 for more informa tion.

When I wrote my column on Cottrells back in May, I took its owner and my neighbor, David Elliott, to lunch on Park Avenue, to visit a few businesses and see an exhibit by the Winter Park Historical Association. One of his remarks that day caught me the vibrancy of the street, and the number of people out and about, in the shops and restaurants. We all run the risk of taking for granted anything we see regularly, and that was a setting experience Im now quite used to. Mr. Elliott doesnt get down to Park Avenue a lot these days so his observation gave me oppor tunity to see it through his eyes, recognize its truth and appreci ate it. We are fortunate in Winter Park for many things, and while I realize it, its also nice to get gentle reminders. mix of locally owned shops and restaurants has been a big moti vator behind my website launch hoping to celebrate our unique environment with truly unique, canned ideas and clone deal sites based in Seattle, Chicago or elsewhere.

I provided information on the idea to the Mayor and all City Commissioners.

Over the years and through many moves, they lost contact. Fast forward to April 2010 when Sindy Levine and Diane Meltz bumped into one another once again while getting manicures. They planned and met for a catchup lunch. At lunch Sindy took out her BlackBerry to make note of a book Diane had liked. Having just gotten that very same phone, Diane was interested in how Sindy was using it. She watched closely as an alphabetical list was opened and there it wasright above Books she spotted another of Sindys notes...APRONS. Aprons? Diane asked. Whats that? Sindy explained that she had a list of ideas for aprons to make and perhaps sell one day. Diane excitedly told her that just the night before she dreamed that she was making aprons and selling them in Europe! Thats where and when their collaboration began. They dont sell in Europe yet, but they have had much success and are very encouraged. After one year designing, making and selling the high fashion, reversible aprons, The Apron Cafe has morphed into the Sophisticated Peacock. The new company is a natural progression into real clothes. Diane and Sindy are very excited to launch it with reversible wrap skirts that go from day to night, from golf to lunch or for just stylishly going shopping. The tunic is their brand new baby! Comfy and attering, it goes over leggings, capris and even bathing suits. The tunics can be special ordered, or you can nd them today at The Blue Door on Park Avenue. Diane, a former student at FIT (The Fashion Institute of Technology), does most of the buying and designing. Sindy does the sewing. She learned her skill set at a young age from her mom and her grandfather, a European tailor.

While many expect nothing in return, remem bering folk by naming parks, amenities after them seems like a better move, but also one that requires moderation. What seems troubling in this process, if I un derstand correctly, is the forma tion of a committee to make a recommendation and when they present the work product, the re action was a bit of, thanks, dont confuse us with your recommen dation, we had something else in mind and will do that instead. charge given to them. As for people being amazed and appalled by racial com ments, I did not see them but can only imagine. However they should take some time to walk through and engage with some of the volunteers at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center. Hear ing about the racial actions and activity that took place in Winter Park in my lifetime may just be an ugly little secret that people should be aware of. Perhaps I should not have been surprised when I toured the center maybe I was naive to think that activities like those did not hap pen in Winter Park, but they did. I was rather embarrassed when I left the Center and was not as proud of Winter Park and its past as I was when I entered. For those that have not visited, take the time to visit Hannibal Square Heritage Center and draw your own conclusions. Winter what happened in Winter Parks past was nothing to be proud of and naming a park after Dr. King does little to erase that. John P.

If that fact had not been true, I think the Pilgrims would have turned their ships around and sailed home. Once our forebears started governing themselves in Virginia, Massachusetts, etc., people in the countries they left began to compare their lives with ours, and theirs were often found wanting. Frances revolution was some 14 years after ours, and England began to modify its monarchy in such ways that the Crown remains today only a national symbol. America, our sweet land of liberty has inexorably changed, as does a beauti ful young girl who grows into a hand some, intelligent woman. We have shared the burdens of a weary Old World, in the ways that a solicitous son might look after his care-ridden father. World War I the war to end all slaughter seldom experienced in all hu man history, and for what? Learning little or nothing from WWI, warring nations created the political climate that generated another World War, which used advanced weapons capable of killing whole populations at a stroke. Various and sundry smaller wars have come and gone and have left their funereal memories in thousands of U.S. homes. A simple Florida country boy like me must be forgiven if he cant keep score in emblazoned brightest in my thoughts and devotion. We hear much of mistakes made by the U.S. who expects perfection? My own mistakes can often be remedied by me. However, macrocosmic international mistakes are not amendable save by the unlikely united goodwill of world powers. In the summer of 1939, after my fresh man year in college, I got a job driving a kitchen bus on a coast-to-coast educational before my eyes the great map of the U.S. in its staggering totality. How well I remember driving across day I saw a great mountain that dwarfed on the ground at the foot of 14,110-foot pioneers thoughts were when they en countered the Rocky Mountains! Pikes Peak and looked back upon the prairie land that I had driven across the previous two days. I have been up Pikes Peak several times in recent years, and each visit brings back to me the majesty of our country when seen from nearly 3 miles above the earth. All of this is mine, I thought and its yours as well. During many years of singing in Eu rope, I never forgot that I was, in fact, an ambassador from the United States, and that my actions would bring either honor thought guided me wherever I was.
