Moments before a vote that would ban protesting in Winter Park neighborhoods, Jennifer An derson stood at the podium in the City Commission Chambers and painted a picture in words. They were yelling, and they were chanting, and they were say ing that this victim was a baby kill er, she said on Monday, describing an anti-abortion protest scene in front of the Winter Park home of Planned Parenthood of Greater Or lando CEO Jenna Tosh on Aug. 18. That incident was at the cen emergency ordinance that banned protesting within 50 feet of singlefamily residential neighborhoods in the city. Monday night the City Commission voted 4-1 to make that ordinance permanent, with Mayor Ken Bradley dissenting. Residents and some visitors whod driven from both coasts of the state packed the chamber to weigh in on a battle fought between free speech and personal safety. Of the incident that clogged the sidewalk along Aloma Avenue, none of the basic facts were in dis pute. Tosh arrived home from a of anti-abortion protestors at her home. They continued to hold signs depicting aborted fetuses along the busy street after Tosh arrived home. Police were called for a disturbance and arrived to survey the scene. But the details of the protest were broadly disputed. Allura Lightfoot, who spoke at the meeting and was part of the protest, said the group was causing no disturbance that led to the police call. This was a peaceful protest, 407-740-0401 www.FirstColonyBank.netYour Real Hometown BankOn Hwy 17-92 in MaitlandMember FDIC Calendar Art & History Museums opens two exhibits, The Power of Two and Spatial Relationships, on Friday.

On Aug. 31, at the Winter Park Commission meeting, ers came together to call foul on a city law thats been around for nearly a century. The group wants chickens to be removed from the prohibited farm ani mals list in city code. Theyre useful birds, and it doesnt make sense why we cant have one sort of useful pet laugh. Bernice, Lucille and Faye the three hens Whited says she may or may not house in her own backyard provide fresh eggs to her and her neigh bors, valuable fertilizer for the soil, and a way to recycle food scraps. All, she says, while be ing considerably less bother some than her neighbors dogs. Were not asking for any thing unreasonable, she said. Shes proposing that the city allow residents to house up to Roosters the main cause of noise concern and unnecessary for egg production would remain on the prohibited list. Whiteds initiative comes on the heels of a similar push for legalizing backyard chickens in the city of Orlando earlier this year. In May, the Orlando City Council passed a pilot program allowing 25 residents to house up to three chickens in their backyard. The program has since been widened slightly to allow additional families to enroll, said Dennis Mudge, the Multi-County Animal Sci ence Agent for the University of Florida who helped organize the pilot program. in the pilot program, the neigh bors are all happy to have the chickens around its going very well. These are some of the best treated chickens Ive ever seen in my life, he said The Maitland City Council unan imously voted against a previously proposed property tax increase on Monday in favor of keeping a mill age rate identical to the one the city has maintained for the past year budget, the Council decided to reduce the proposed millage rate from 3.93 back to 3.88 with an ad ditional debt service millage of .44 for a total rate of 4.32, meaning residents can expect to pay roughly $4.32 per $1,000 of taxable home value. A homeowner with a house with a total taxable value of $250,000 can expect a $15 savings on their prop erty tax bill compared to the initial estimate. I hope that makes some noise that we join a few other communi ties whove done everything else necessary to not have a tax in crease, said Councilman Phil Bo nus, who had consistently voted PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE OBSERVER Mark Schmidter waits to speak against an ordinance in Winter Park that would make protesting in residential neighborhoods illegal.

Keeping the 3.88 millage, where the rates been set since 2007, results in roughly $93,000 less revenue for he city than with the preciously proposed 3.93 rate, Management Services Director Sharon Anselmo said. The decision to keep the lower rate came following a debate over the city could justify raising taxes to raise the salary of employees. A 2.5 percent merit-based pay raise for all employees was already budgeted, but Council members debated giving more after see ing the initial results of a market salaries were below market value. Councilman Ivan Valdes said, I cant see asking the citizens to pay more for salary increases. I cant sit here and say lets throw things out that the citizens enjoy just so that we can make pay raises. At the 3.88 millage rate, he not ed, the city had its entire budget balanced with $2,223 to spare and that salaries could be changed as needed with other funds already set aside. Anselmo said the budget al located $311,000 for salary ad justments in 2012, and that in this budget pay plan, changes will have to be made within that funding. The approved budget also al located funding for both state and federal lobbyists, keeping the Maitland Public Library open on Mondays, and funding an addi tional part-time position within COUNCIL | Study shows city salaries are below market value C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE Join us for a stylish and fun night as we raise funds for a great cause.

The Orlando program, which requires participants to take an urban chicken care class, and the concurrent Winter Park Backyard Chicken Initiative are part of what Mudge says has been a larger nationwide whole food move ment thats blossomed in the last increasingly interested in where their food is coming from and are using chickens as a way to control that on their own. Tom Carey operates Sundew Gardens in Oviedo, where he teaches urban chicken care class chickens. He says hes seen a growing interest locally in living dering peoples basic right to con trol the source of their own food. Theyre essentially saying people cant grow and produce their own food theyre saying you have to go to Publix and pay for these things with cash. For the cities to write laws that peo ple have to buy food at a grocery store, I dont agree with that, he said. He said raising hens is a centuries-old tradition that, when done responsibly, causes little or no disruption to a community. You might hear maybe a cou ple cluck, cluck, clucks, but noth ing louder than a TV, he said. Mudge said noise and mod eration of the chickens were the biggest concerns in Orlando, and have since become non-issues as the pilot program has moved along. Chicago and San Francisco have successful programs. The main thing is that the birds be treated appropriately. People were afraid that this would be taken advantage of, but its been just the opposite, he said. Winter Park resident Joseph DAnna says he stumbled upon Whiteds Winter Park Backyard Chicken Initiative while research ing the idea of urban chickens after he heard that they were le galized in Seattle. He found other cities in Florida, such as Sarasota and Tampa, had changed laws to allow backyard chickens, but that Winter Park still had the practice outlawed. But hes hopeful that with the initiative raising aware ness, it wont be long until that changes. I think youll see more cities do it especially if it works out in Orlando, he said. Winter Park should watch how theirs goes, let Orlando work out the bugs so to speak and go from there. Winter Park Mayor Ken Brad ley says that following Whiteds appeal to the Commission last urban chickens and has instruct ed members of the Planning and Zoning Board to provide a recom mendation to the Commission in the near future. We always try to be responsive to citizens requests, so thats what were working to do. The request is very interest ing, and Im sure it will have its time too, he said. For the time being, Whited is working to increase awareness and education about urban chick ens throughout the community. From posters to Facebook posts, she said she is doing all she can to try and change the way people view the idea of raising chickens in Winter Park. Shes says that there are a va riety of breeds to choose from, and the birds often develop per sonalities and relationships with the owners like any other pet. For those interested, she said, even Williams-Sonoma on Park Avenue has a chicken coop and kit for sale in its store. Our biggest enemy is peoples visions of what raising backyard chickens means, she said. Its a really great thing, and not neces sarily what people expect.

Page 3 Lightfoot said. We were singing, praying, and holding pictures. She said that police were angry that the person who had called them about a disturbance had lied to them. They stated that they were called under false pretenses, Lightfoot said. But resident Madeline Pots, whose house also had protestors in front of it, described a more contentious scene along the busy thoroughfare. They had huge banners and posters, very graphic posters, Pots said. They were shouting scripture. They were yelling and waving to cars. My husband ap pealed to them to quiet down, which they didnt do until there was a police presence. They posi tioned their young children along Aloma Avenue, literally inches from the curb. That incident, and the ensu ing outcry, led to the emergency anti-protest ordinance that the city voted to make permanent on Monday. The city attorney said that it would stand up in court but others in attendance disagreed. If you pass this you might as well call it the lawyer employ ment act, because this is going to create a lot of jobs, resident Mark Schmidter said. This is just going to cost a bunch of people a whole lot of money to defend the Con stitution. University of Central Florida law professor David Slaughter said that though the ordinance seemingly infringed upon free speech rights, free speech is not universal. This ordinance is unques tionably constitutional, he said. No right is absolute. Not the First Amendment, not the Second Amendment. Protected speech is not equally permissible in all places at all times. In the end the vote would be decided on the merits of safety trumping speech. Though the law would apply to any kind of protest, the anti-abortion incident used by the four commissioners who voted in favor of the ordi nance. Bradley, the lone dissenter, de scribed the oppression faced by relatives he visited in the commu nist former Czechoslovakia and said that he learned what restrict ing freedoms could lead to. You cant have safety in your homes if you dont have rights around it, Bradley said. For me the freedoms trump that. Commissioner Steven Leary said that he didnt want the city to have to pass the ordinance, but that safety concerns were too dire. There are [protestors] that are trying to use the First Amend ment to shield hatred and harass ment, Leary said. This crude form of harassment has no place in this community.
