Oct. 1, so budget approval and bal ancing must all be approved at the Sept. 24 meetings. In Maitland, the City Council has spent portions of its last two meetings debating a list of 19 bud getary items on the fence for 2013. A tentative copy of the approved version of the citys $21.13 million budget as of the Councils Sept. 10 meeting shows 13 of those items approved resulting in an addition to the citys general fund balance of $97,706 with the millage rate set PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE OBSERVERMore than 2,100 Winter Park residents took a stand against breast cancer on Sept. 9 in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most number of people standing on one leg, like a amingo.

Now some of those issues may come to a close as the Commission grapples 2013 budget on Monday. Commissioner Carolyn Cooper sion about spending more money to identify trees that could be in danger of falling in the coming years, as talks of the citys aging tree canopy turned morbid. Knight said the city has budget ed $1 million for tree maintenance. Cooper requested that up to $80,000 be taken out of the tree preservation fund to spend identifying and tak ing down trees that are in danger of falling. It takes about $1,100 to take down a 30-inch (diameter) tree, Cooper said. If we have 155 trees right now that have been identi we wont deal with the ones that Assistant City Manager Michelle Del Valle said that the city recently embarked upon a $50,000 program Please see COMMISSION on page 3Winter Park copes with tree deathsISAAC BABCOCK Observer StaffPHOTO BY STEVEN BARNHART THE OBSERVERThe Great Gatsbythemed Bash for Books raised $54,600 for the Winter Park Public Library on Sept. 8, with food, wine, a silent auction and rafes (pictured).Library gala raises $54K A leg up on cancer

Page 2 at 3.93 ($3.93 per $1,000 of taxable value). The debt service millage is proposed at 0.5 for a total millage of 4.43. But Maitland Management Services Director Sharon Anselmo says many of those cuts are likely to come back up for debate among Council members before the budThey didnt really all come to a consensus, so theyll really have to come to a decision on Monday, she said. Key items of contention exist over whether to defer re-carpeting the library to next year in favor of letting it remain open on Mon days this year, and also whether or not to fund federal and state lobbyist positions, for $60,250 and $50,004, respectively. We do have the money, the question is just how well spend money [to fund the positions], its just are we getting value for it? Councilman Phil Bonus asked at the Councils Sept. 10 meeting. The tentative budget approved that night, with dissenting votes from Bonus and Councilwoman Linda Frosch, included the fund ing of both positions and the compromise to allow the library to open on Mondays. Bonus and Frosch have con tinually voted in opposition of the budget as is, because of the pro posed increased millage rate, 3.93, up from 3.88, where its been since 2007. The increase is equivalent to an additional 5 cents per $1,000 of taxable value so about $10 for a home with a $200,000 taxable value. I cant believe that we would raise taxes on people in this econ omy to save more money our selves, Bonus said, a nod to the funds left over to transfer to the citys general fund. If the budget stays as it stands, but the millage was kept at 3.88, Anselmo said, $4,000 would roll into the fund balance, instead of the $97,706 estimated with the 3.93 rate. Valdes said he approved the idea of the tax increase if it meant the city hiring more people and in the city, and two additional tentative budget. One position been recommended to be unfro two police positions have been added in the current budget. At the Council meeting on Monday, city department heads will present to Council what, if any, positions they would request Those requests will be added to the list of items up for consider ation as budget balancing comes to close.Winter Park Winter Park passed a millage rate that will be the same as last taxes for residents, Mayor Ken Bradley said. The millage was set at 4.0923, the same as the current operating budget, which Bradley said rep resents an average decrease for property owners of .71 percent, due to a decline in property val ues. The citys debt service mill age is .3260, for a total of 4.4183. with little debate by a 5-0 vote. But the vote on the overall bud get, about which Carolyn Cooper raised questions regarding trim ming and removing dead and dy commitment to converting the some contention. That eventually passed on a 4-1 vote, with Cooper dissenting. The millage and budget will be up for mission meeting.

Page 3 to trim dead trees, with a focus on identifying trees that needed to be removed. That was Phase 1 during this the dead trees. Mayor Ken Bradley balked at Coopers inference that trees were becoming a danger to pedestrians and drivers in the city. Are there unsafe trees in our city that we need to drive fast to get under? Bradley asked. Com missioner if you see unsafe trees that you feel are about to fall, then you need to call the city so we can get out and trim those trees. He questioned the need to spend more money than the city already is to identify and remove trees. So lets spend more money so we know how much we need to spend, he said. Thats not a good idea is it? City Manager Randy Knight said that the issue of dying trees could be more serious than some in the city think. We are in an unprecedented time of trees dying, Knight said. This is going to be able to tell us whats out there. Were getting calls all the time about this. Del Valle said that the city is testing how it will pay contractors to remove all of the dead trees, and weighing whether the city should once again be completely involved in the tree trimming determining how extensive the is sue is while cutting the trees that are the biggest danger. Obviously its not a one-year Cooper moved to add $100,000 from the general fund to the budget for tree canopy trimming. That motion died without a second. The budget passed 4-1 with Cooper dissenting. That budget a millage rate vote that will imme diately precede it at the Sept. 24 City Commission meeting. If that vote passes, the budget will be set for the 2013 budget year.

oes the teacher have to ask him to stop talking to his friends during class? Maybe hes language smart or people smart. Hell have to learn to sit in his desk and be quiet when the teacher is talking, but maybe these are clues about your childs intelligence. Once you discover how your child is intelligent, you can help him work toward a fulfilling future. So, how can you help your child discover the unique ways hes smart? There are many ways to be smart, and not all of them are revealed by school assessments or IQ tests. The idea of multiple intelligences was first introduced by Howard Gardner in his book Frames of Mind. His colleague, Thomas Armstrong, created kid-friendly labels for seven types of intelligence. A description of each intelligences or Smart is described below and can help you determine how your child is smart. Consider what your child does with his free time. School grades are helpful, but they dont give the whole picture. Which Smart Is Your Child? Life TodayCelebrating Life, Family and the Power of Hope When is He the Happiest? ake note of behaviors you observe from the list and how often you observe those behaviors. Remember, everyone has all seven types of intelligence, but in different proportions. The goal is to determine which ones are the strongest for your child. Behaviors Associated with the 7 Multiple Intelligences. 1. Enjoys reading, telling stories, and / or word games Has a good vocabulary Often found talking with friends or colleagues 2. Is helped by visuals (maps, charts, diagrams) Likes drawing, coloring, or painting doodling during a lecture or discussion. 3. Difficulty staying still or seated for long periods Uses gestures and movement in expressing self Likes hands on type tasks Shows large or small-motor coordination Loves to take things apart and put them back together 4. Very quiet, very self-reflective Accurately expresses how he/she is feeling Prefers working alone Realistic sense of ones own strengths & weaknesses 5. Good at listening to and communicating with others Belongs to clubs, committees, or organizations Demonstrates empathy and concern for others 6. Quick problem solving Remembers thinking formulas and problemsolving strategies Relentless question and curiosity on how things work 7. Enjoys listening to and playing music Often hums or whistles Taps foot or pencil rhythmically while working n school, Word Smart and Logic Smart are highly rewarded. Think of them as the eyes of the body: functional and attractive. Other kinds of smart are often overlooked or even discouraged in a school setting. They are like the brain or the stomach important, but not as prominently displayed. Because some types of intelligence get all the glory, you or your child may feel discouraged if he doesnt naturally excel in them. A Music Smart child may wish to be Logic Smart even though its a struggle. Its a bit like the stomach trying to be the eyes. The whole body benefits when the stomach digests food and sends nutrients where theyre needed. Your child has a unique role in life, in his community, and in your family. When he knows what his role is, and sees its value, everyone benefits. You are your childs greatest advocate, and your praise or criticism can make or break him. Praise him. Brag about him to others (especially when he can overhear you). You can put the world in focus for your child. You can help him find fulfillment in life, whether he becomes a brain surgeon or a baker. Next time he wonders hes smart or smart he is, tell him Some Kinds of Smart Get More Glory than Others

Its such a negative sounding word. ore than that, failure is an undesirable experience. The experience of failure generally brings feelings of regret, selfcondemnation and humiliation. Many times failure leaves us feeling bleak, like winter when the sun doesnt shine. With this school year now in full swing, failure will be a reality for many students maybe even your child. This reality, however, does not have to produce negative ramifications. In fact, you can respond in four ways that will help rather than hurt. Communicate your childs worth. Evaluating performance is an important part of any education process. Failing grades, however, can have the unintended effect of communicating worth. It is easy for someone who has received failing marks to believe he is not a valuable as those who receive passing marks. One of the most important messages you can communicate to your child is that his value is never tied to a grade earned in school. You love him unconditionally, regardless of his performance. Express delight in your child because he Give your child Hope. Finally, remember that you are your childs best teacher. How you handle the news of failure and process it with your child could be the difference between winter and spring. Just like the seasons change and spring comes after winter, second chances often come after failure. So encourage your child that a new day will come. If you have a failure story, share that experience with our child. Help them know that a letter grade does not sufficiently express what one knows. Life is bigger than a report card, and grace for starting over is like spring breaking through a thawing winter. is a person, created and valuable, with a body and soul. His existence is a gift from God. Acknowledge your childs disappointment as well as your own. Parents, teachers, and children live with expectations about school performance, and when expectations are not met, disappointment comes. Being honest about your disappointment can lead to productive conversations about realistic and unhealthy expectations. You may find that your childs disappointment was the result of wanting to fit in. You may also find that you wanted to be proud of your son or daughter. In either case, you should evaluate whether these expectations are valid. Help your child reflect on what went wrong. Children fail in school for a variety of reasons. Sometimes kids fail in subjects because of a language barrier. Other times the fail because the class standards do not allow enough time to be spent on a concept. It is possible your child failed because he did not put forth his best effort. Whatever the reason for failure, serious reflection will help you figure out how to realistically move forward. hen my dad, as an adult, was growing in his understanding of his own attention-deficit disorder, he read a book entitled That title echoed what he always wanted to say to people: Im not lazy, crazy, or stupid! But, as a child, my dad didnt have the knowledge to understand what was going on in his brain or the power to convince the adults around him that their criticism was not only hurtful, it was also wrong. Sadly, many children have been and are subjected to a similar kind of criticism by parents and sometimes even teachers. Those who have the most power to help have not always understood the varied and complicated struggles faced by children with mild disabilities and/or an attention-deficit disorder especially when they begin school. Yet thankfully today, because of many advances in brain research and identification of cognitive disabilities, you as the parent have many resources available to help your child overcome or at least compensate for an area of weakness. You can face the challenge of your son or daughter struggling to learn to read or comprehend written texts or write clearly or memorize math facts or attend to tasks at hand. And, the best way to begin is by reminding yourself of your valuable role as your childs primary encourager. Encourage your child by seeking help early. When you notice that something is amiss in your childs development, ruling out certain causes is important. Loss of hearing or a loss of sight should be checked first. Such losses can impair learning. Talking to your primary care doctor is a good place to begin. And if your child seems to be struggling in academic tasks or even nonintellectual pursuits, approaching your childs teacher with your concerns would be an important next step. Together you can discuss strategies to help your child be more successful. Encourage your child by recognizing his strengths. If you are always trying to fix your child, you may unknowingly communicate that your child only has worth if he can do certain things. Your child should know that every person is a unique combination of abilities and disabilities; not one person is good at everything. Encourage your child by considering the possibility of choosing a different school environment. Thankfully, our government is committed to helping children of all abilities succeed as much as they are able. Parents and teachers, working together, can pursue diagnostic testing with a school psychologist for a child demonstrating learning problems. Following a thorough evaluation, if eligibility for an exceptional Life Is Bigger than a Report Card by Hope Aikens Educator & Mom of Four The Gift of Encouraging Your Struggling Student education program is warranted, interventions by a trained teacher can be made for the child in a regular classroom at your local school. However, depending on the severity of an area of weakness, you may want to consider homeschooling or some combination of traditional school and homeschooling as an option for your child. If you can make the time investment to be involved closely with your child's educational journey, homeschooling can provide curriculum choice, take pressure off of your child to perform at a more rigid graded pace (check out the Florida Virtual School), and it can eliminate negative peer interactions. As a parent, never discount your impact on your child THE HONOR ROLL By Hope Aikens Educator & Mom of Four

Fun shines through Frisby v. Schultz upholds an ordinance that prohibits picketing before or about any single residence or dwelling, narrowly construed as prohibiting only picketing that targets a particular residence, and furthering signicant governmental interest in protecting the privacy of the home. Residential picketing rules to conform with Frisby v. Schultz: 1) Dont target just one residence do a whole neighborhood while staying on public property. 2) Do it silently no one can be forced to listen to someone elses free speech in their own home. Everyone can easily draw the curtains and not look at picketing, but nobody can easily block the sound of loud speech or any other sound generating device. (Drums, boom boxes, etc.) This is why signs and leaets are so important they dont make any sound. MEREDITH RRANEY What I nd very interesting about this whole story is the total neglect of citing the fact that the police indeed were on site for this particular expression or First Amendment rights by a group of Christians in front of Jenna Toshs (CEO of Planned Parenthood) house, on the PUBLIC SIDEWALK. The rst Commission meeting held for this need to enact this unconstitutional emergency ban to suddenly protect the Winter Park citizens was lacking any statements from the police ofcers that witnessed the whole scene. On the contrary, on video, you can nd very ofcers and Christians/pro-lifers communicating on an extremely civil level. As a matter of fact, the day this occurred, the police ofcers complimented the Christians for their attitude and their willingness to follow orders given by the ofcers, such as making sure pedestrians could pass by on sidewalks. Jenna Toshs absolute lie about having to shove through the crowd is typical. The mainly women and children made sure Tosh, her husband, their child in the stroller and their dogs had plenty of room to get by she was even greeted with hellos and your dogs are really pretty! One ofcer shared with one of the Christians how tired he was of people calling and spewing lies. They were told that people were screaming and yelling, but all he saw were people singing, preaching and praying! Sadly, Winter Park has become a lap dog for Planned Parenthood and an example of a city that strips their citizens basic fundamental First Amendment rights away from them to protect a particular citizen/political correctness. Because, trust me, if this would have been another type of protest, there would not have been an emergency ordinance. And yes, the constitutional lawyer, David Brett, is right as far as this ordinance being constitutionally overboard. Citizens of Winter Park, you can thank your commissioners, because it looks like a lot of your taxes will now be going to fund some pricy lawsuits over this politically correct, unconstitutional ban of free speech!

Judge NOT least ye be judged. Too bad Jennas sprinklers didnt cover the sidewalk that day. WINTER PARK LLOVER 2 I am very grieved over the censoring of freedom of speech, especially the freedom of religious speech. What is WRONG with Winter Park that they would violate the exercise of constitutionally guaranteed rights? Shame on them! Poor little babies deserve to have people speak up for them. LLIfF ESONG

Now some of those issues may come to a close as the Commission grapples 2013 budget on Monday. Commissioner Carolyn Cooper sion about spending more money to identify trees that could be in dan ger of falling in the coming years, as talks of the citys aging tree canopy turned morbid. Knight said the city has budget ed $1 million for tree maintenance. Cooper requested that up to $80,000 be taken out of the tree preservation fund to spend identifying and tak ing down trees that are in danger of falling. It takes about $1,100 to take down a 30-inch (diameter) tree, Cooper said.

Page 2 at 3.93 ($3.93 per $1,000 of taxable value). The debt service millage is proposed at 0.5 for a total millage of 4.43. But Maitland Management Services Director Sharon Anselmo says many of those cuts are likely to come back up for debate among Council members before the bud They didnt really all come to a consensus, so theyll really have to come to a decision on Monday, she said. Key items of contention exist over whether to defer re-carpeting the library to next year in favor of letting it remain open on Mon days this year, and also whether or not to fund federal and state lobbyist positions, for $60,250 and $50,004, respectively. We do have the money, the question is just how well spend money [to fund the positions], its just are we getting value for it? Councilman Phil Bonus asked at the Councils Sept. 10 meeting. The tentative budget approved that night, with dissenting votes from Bonus and Councilwoman Linda Frosch, included the fund ing of both positions and the com promise to allow the library to open on Mondays. Bonus and Frosch have con tinually voted in opposition of the budget as is, because of the pro posed increased millage rate, 3.93, up from 3.88, where its been since 2007. The increase is equivalent to an additional 5 cents per $1,000 of taxable value so about $10 for a home with a $200,000 taxable value. I cant believe that we would raise taxes on people in this econ omy to save more money our selves, Bonus said, a nod to the funds left over to transfer to the citys general fund. If the budget stays as it stands, but the millage was kept at 3.88, Anselmo said, $4,000 would roll into the fund balance, instead of the $97,706 estimated with the 3.93 rate. Valdes said he approved the idea of the tax increase if it meant the city hiring more people and in the city, and two additional tentative budget. One position been recommended to be unfro two police positions have been added in the current budget. At the Council meeting on Monday, city department heads will present to Council what, if any, positions they would request Those requests will be added to the list of items up for consider ation as budget balancing comes to close. Winter Park Winter Park passed a millage rate that will be the same as last taxes for residents, Mayor Ken Bradley said. The millage was set at 4.0923, the same as the current operating budget, which Bradley said rep resents an average decrease for property owners of .71 percent, due to a decline in property val ues. The citys debt service mill age is .3260, for a total of 4.4183. with little debate by a 5-0 vote.

Mayor Ken Bradley balked at Coopers inference that trees were becoming a danger to pedestrians and drivers in the city. Are there unsafe trees in our city that we need to drive fast to get under? Bradley asked. Com missioner if you see unsafe trees that you feel are about to fall, then you need to call the city so we can get out and trim those trees. He questioned the need to spend more money than the city already is to identify and remove trees. So lets spend more money so we know how much we need to spend, he said. Thats not a good idea is it? City Manager Randy Knight said that the issue of dying trees could be more serious than some in the city think. We are in an unprecedented time of trees dying, Knight said. This is going to be able to tell us whats out there. Were getting calls all the time about this. Del Valle said that the city is testing how it will pay contractors to remove all of the dead trees, and weighing whether the city should once again be completely involved in the tree trimming determining how extensive the is sue is while cutting the trees that are the biggest danger. Obviously its not a one-year Cooper moved to add $100,000 from the general fund to the bud get for tree canopy trimming. That motion died without a second. The budget passed 4-1 with Cooper dissenting. That budget a millage rate vote that will imme diately precede it at the Sept. 24 City Commission meeting. If that vote passes, the budget will be set for the 2013 budget year.

oes the teacher have to ask him to stop talking to his friends during class? Maybe hes language smart or people smart. Hell have to learn to sit in his desk and be quiet when the teacher is talking, but maybe these are clues about your childs intelligence. Once you discover how your child is intelligent, you can help him work toward a fulfilling future. So, how can you help your child discover the unique ways hes smart? There are many ways to be smart, and not all of them are revealed by school assessments or IQ tests. The idea of multiple intelligences was first introduced by Howard Gardner in his book Frames of Mind. His colleague, Thomas Armstrong, created kid friendly labels for seven types of intelligence. A description of each intelligences or Smart is described below and can help you determine how your child is smart. Consider what your child does with his free time. School grades are helpful, but they dont give the whole picture. Which Smart Is Your Child? Life T odayCelebrating Life, Family and the Power of Hope When is He the Happiest? ake note of behaviors you observe from the list and how often you observe those behaviors. Remember, everyone has all seven types of intelligence, but in different proportions. The goal is to determine which ones are the strongest for your child. Behaviors Associated with the 7 Multiple Intelligences. 1. Enjoys reading, telling stories, and / or word games Has a good vocabulary Often found talking with friends or colleagues 2. Is helped by visuals (maps, charts, diagrams) Likes drawing, coloring, or painting doodling during a lecture or discussion. 3. Difficulty staying still or seated for long periods Uses gestures and movement in expressing self Likes hands on type tasks Shows large or small motor coordination Loves to take things apart and put them back together 4. Very quiet, very self reflective Accurately expresses how he/she is feeling Prefers working alone Realistic sense of ones own strengths & weaknesses 5. Good at listening to and communicating with others Belongs to clubs, committees, or organizations Demonstrates empathy and concern for others 6. Quick problem solving Remembers thinking formulas and problem solving strategies Relentless question and curiosity on how things work 7. Enjoys listening to and playing music Often hums or whistles Taps foot or pencil rhythmically while working n school, Word Smart and Logic Smart are highly rewarded. Think of them as the eyes of the body: functional and attractive. Other kinds of smart are often overlooked or even discouraged in a school setting. They are like the brain or the stomach important, but not as prominently displayed. Because some types of intelligence get all the glory, you or your child may feel discouraged if he doesnt naturally excel in them. A Music Smart child may wish to be Logic Smart even though its a struggle. Its a bit like the stomach trying to be the eyes. The whole body benefits when the stomach digests food and sends nutrients where theyre needed. Your child has a unique role in life, in his community, and in your family. When he knows what his role is, and sees its value, everyone benefits. You are your childs greatest advocate, and your praise or criticism can make or break him. Praise him. Brag about him to others (especially when he can overhear you). You can put the world in focus for your child. You can help him find fulfillment in life, whether he becomes a brain surgeon or a baker. Next time he wonders hes smart or smart he is, tell him Some Kinds of Smart Get More Glory than Others

Its such a negative sounding word. ore than that, failure is an undesirable experience. The experience of failure generally brings feelings of regret, self condemnation and humiliation. Many times failure leaves us feeling bleak, like winter when the sun doesnt shine. With this school year now in full swing, failure will be a reality for many students maybe even your child. This reality, however, does not have to produce negative ramifications. In fact, you can respond in four ways that will help rather than hurt. Communicate your childs worth. Evaluating performance is an important part of any education process. Failing grades, however, can have the unintended effect of communicating worth. It is easy for someone who has received failing marks to believe he is not a valuable as those who receive passing marks. One of the most important messages you can communicate to your child is that his value is never tied to a grade earned in school. You love him unconditionally, regardless of his performance. Express delight in your child because he Give your child Hope. Finally, remember that you are your childs best teacher. How you handle the news of failure and process it with your child could be the difference between winter and spring. Just like the seasons change and spring comes after winter, second chances often come after failure. So encourage your child that a new day will come. If you have a failure story, share that experience with our child. Help them know that a letter grade does not sufficiently express what one knows. Life is bigger than a report card, and grace for starting over is like spring breaking through a thawing winter. is a person, created and valuable, with a body and soul. His existence is a gift from God. Acknowledge your childs disappointment as well as your own. Parents, teachers, and children live with expectations about school performance, and when expectations are not met, disappointment comes. Being honest about your disappointment can lead to productive conversations about realistic and unhealthy expectations. You may find that your childs disappointment was the result of wanting to fit in. You may also find that you wanted to be proud of your son or daughter. In either case, you should evaluate whether these expectations are valid. Help your child reflect on what went wrong. Children fail in school for a variety of reasons. Sometimes kids fail in subjects because of a language barrier. Other times the fail because the class standards do not allow enough time to be spent on a concept. It is possible your child failed because he did not put forth his best effort. Whatever the reason for failure, serious reflection will help you figure out how to realistically move forward. hen my dad, as an adult, was growing in his understanding of his own attention deficit disorder, he read a book entitled That title echoed what he always wanted to say to people: Im not lazy, crazy, or stupid! But, as a child, my dad didnt have the knowledge to understand what was going on in his brain or the power to convince the adults around him that their criticism was not only hurtful, it was also wrong. Sadly, many children have been and are subjected to a similar kind of criticism by parents and sometimes even teachers. Those who have the most power to help have not always understood the varied and complicated struggles faced by children with mild disabilities and/or an attention deficit disorder especially when they begin school. Yet thankfully today, because of many advances in brain research and identification of cognitive disabilities, you as the parent have many resources available to help your child overcome or at least compensate for an area of weakness. You can face the challenge of your son or daughter struggling to learn to read or comprehend written texts or write clearly or memorize math facts or attend to tasks at hand. And, the best way to begin is by reminding yourself of your valuable role as your childs primary encourager. Encourage your child by seeking help early. When you notice that something is amiss in your childs development, ruling out certain causes is important. Loss of hearing or a loss of sight should be checked first. Such losses can impair learning. Talking to your primary care doctor is a good place to begin. And if your child seems to be struggling in academic tasks or even non intellectual pursuits, approaching your childs teacher with your concerns would be an important next step. Together you can discuss strategies to help your child be more successful. Encourage your child by recognizing his strengths. If you are always trying to fix your child, you may unknowingly communicate that your child only has worth if he can do certain things. Your child should know that every person is a unique combination of abilities and disabilities; not one person is good at everything. Encourage your child by considering the possibility of choosing a different school environment. Thankfully, our government is committed to helping children of all abilities succeed as much as they are able. Parents and teachers, working together, can pursue diagnostic testing with a school psychologist for a child demonstrating learning problems. Following a thorough evaluation, if eligibility for an exceptional Life Is Bigger than a Report Card by Hope Aikens Educator & Mom of Four The Gift of Encouraging Your Struggling Student education program is warranted, interventions by a trained teacher can be made for the child in a regular classroom at your local school. However, depending on the severity of an area of weakness, you may want to consider homeschooling or some combination of traditional school and homeschooling as an option for your child. If you can make the time investment to be involved closely with your child's educational journey, homeschooling can provide curriculum choice, take pressure off of your child to perform at a more rigid graded pace (check out the Florida Virtual School), and it can eliminate negative peer interactions. As a parent, never discount your impact on your child THE HONOR ROLL By Hope Aikens Educator & Mom of Four

You will also be able to determine if there is any swelling, redness or change of the nipple. If you see any of these alterations, it is important to bring this to your doctors attention. Living a healthy lifestyle is the rst step in taking preventative action against breast cancer. Make sure you are getting plenty of physical activity. Maintaining a healthy weight reduces your risk of getting breast cancer. Being overweight or obese, especially aer menopause, increases your risk, so be sure to eat your fruits and vegetables! And dont forget to restrict your alcohol intake. Limit yourself to no more than one drink a day. is quick breast exam is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. Mammograms can detect breast cancer and can show changes in the breast even years before a patient or doctor can feel them. Starting at the age of 40, schedule your mammogram annually. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Take action!

Ive seen her col orful portraits and As I sit across from her at Panera Bread on Park Avenue, I hear a quote from My Best Love the bag, love the shoes, Her cool haircut, her fun round tortoiseshell glasses, her polka me, My high school art teacher told me that I should never be a good memory, but I remember do them. more than art to me and others I believe as she cre ates portraits of actors and actresses, notable television and pop culture icons from decades a portrait she did of Rebecca jects personality comes through called a gift. creations are because her son, she says, Is so It sticks in my head, notes, He didnt like the number of my favorite pieces, including the Abomi both from the classic Rudolph the backside of cardboard food instructions just opposite her art. I decided Id start painting saving them for her. I ask if shes a hoarder and she zigzags a bit, its not 10 tons. I dont have any ever, are old projector screens, Because theyre in the garbage and theyre perfectly good. And the greatest part about it is that you can recess it back into its thing and then you can carry it talks of them being really fun, but a commitment, because of the time they can require. I ask her about inspirations Nightmare Before Christmas in and just being star struck by his and the characters and the encourages my inner child to Yeah, yeah, I think I like being an adult, not having to be a teenager anymore, but I like the idea of magical thinking. I still We talk of creativity, creative license and she remarks, I like (something else). Ive had dont think shes speaking to and she had nothing else she could have turned her into Cher, but she only talked about her And I thought that sounded like a lot of fun.

She now has a varied and extensive portfolio of sketches, murals and other paintings and enjoys doing special commission work. Her work can be viewed at GeorgiaRoark.com and prints are also available, as shown, at Millers Hardware, 143 W. Fairbanks Ave. Her self-portrait PHOTO BY CLYDE MOORE THE OBSERVER Artist Dawn Schreiner brings along a number of my favorite fun pieces, including Hermey the elf who wants to be a dentist from the classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Fun shines through Frisby v. Schultz upholds an ordinance that prohibits picketing before or about any single residence or dwelling, narrowly construed as prohibiting only picketing that targets a particular residence, and furthering signicant governmental interest in protecting the privacy of the home. Residential picketing rules to conform with Frisby v. Schultz: 1) Dont target just one residence do a whole neighborhood while staying on public property. 2) Do it silently no one can be forced to listen to someone elses free speech in their own home. Everyone can easily draw the curtains and not look at picketing, but nobody can easily block the sound of loud speech or any other sound generating device. (Drums, boom boxes, etc.) This is why signs and leaets are so important they dont make any sound. MEREDITH RANEY What I nd very interesting about this whole story is the total neglect of citing the fact that the police indeed were on site for this particular expression or First Amendment rights by a group of Christians in front of Jenna Toshs (CEO of Planned Parenthood) house, on the PUBLIC SIDEWALK. The rst Commission meeting held for this need to enact this unconstitutional emergency ban to suddenly protect the Winter Park citizens was lacking any statements from the police ofcers that witnessed the whole scene. On the contrary, on video, you can nd very ofcers and Christians/pro-lifers communicating on an extremely civil level. As a matter of fact, the day this occurred, the police ofcers complimented the Christians for their attitude and their willingness to follow orders given by the ofcers, such as making sure pedestrians could pass by on sidewalks. Jenna Toshs absolute lie about having to shove through the crowd is typical. The mainly women and children made sure Tosh, her husband, their child in the stroller and their dogs had plenty of room to get by she was even greeted with hellos and your dogs are really pretty! One ofcer shared with one of the Christians how tired he was of people calling and spewing lies. They were told that people were screaming and yelling, but all he saw were people singing, preaching and praying! Sadly, Winter Park has become a lap dog for Planned Parenthood and an example of a city that strips their citizens basic fundamental First Amendment rights away from them to protect a particular citizen/political correctness. Because, trust me, if this would have been another type of protest, there would not have been an emergency ordinance. And yes, the constitutional lawyer, David Brett, is right as far as this ordinance being constitutionally overboard. Citizens of Winter Park, you can thank your commissioners, because it looks like a lot of your taxes will now be going to fund some pricy lawsuits over this politically correct, unconstitutional ban of free speech! FLORIDIAN WO M EN F OR FREEDO M Heres what wpmobserver.com readers had to say about the Sept. 13 article Winter Park bans protestors near homes. Visit wpmobserver.com to read the story and more reader responses. Picket and protest at the workplace! To go to her home is a different thing. We used to have class in this country. Now the West Baptist Church approach of shock and awe is considered OK. Roe v. Wade folks! Taking this approach is trash and does your pro-life message NO GOOD. So sad this all went down. Judge NOT least ye be judged. Too bad Jennas sprinklers didnt cover the sidewalk that day. WINTER PARK LOVER 2 I am very grieved over the censoring of freedom of speech, especially the freedom of religious speech. What is WRONG with Winter Park that they would violate the exercise of constitutionally guaranteed rights? Shame on them! Poor little babies deserve to have people speak up for them. LIF ESONG
