Bonus said hes doing the same, though harsh words from crit ics, which in part led him to resign, has made that hard to do. Bonus resigned Thursday, Oct. 11, following his name appearing numerous times on the client list of an east Orange County brothel, and a DUI from December 2011 going Students at Dommerich Elemen tary School and Maitland Middle School observed International Walk to School Day by using alternative means to get to school on Oct. 3. More than 250 students at Mai tland Middle walked or rode their bikes to school, an increase of 40 percent from regular school days, said Michelle Sartor, the head of the schools WalknRoll program. Sartor and another mother began the WalknRoll program in 2008 to encourage more students to ride bikes or walk to school as a way of living healthy. Since then they have seen an increase in students walking or biking. Particularly on the one day a month when they have an incentive program to get students to partici pate. It can be a lifelong habit if you ride a half a mile to school, Sartor said. You might start doing it some where besides your school. The incentives, usually small items such as stress balls, water bottles or backpacks, are given on a participa tion basis. The more often students participate in the monthly event, the better the reward, Sartor said. There are bigger items though, such as bike A billowing white tent sets whats to come. This week, Harrietts Park Avenue Fashion Week organiz ers hope to serve up the high est fashion, hanging gracefully, modernly, beautifully and even sometimes a little eccentrically on models trained to represent the city like theres no better place for fashion on Earth. They say its their chance to show everyone that Win ter Park shouldnt be ignored when it comes to dressing well. And the atmosphere Fashion Week creates changes the city for a week, transporting resi dents and visitors to a place forward. All the parties, the clothes and the celebration of creativ ity add an extra spark to the Avenue, said Paige Blackweld er, chair of Fashion Week and owner of Tuni on Park Avenue. You can tell that theres something in the air, Black welder said. It really shows Winter Park has style and it has fashion. Susan Johnson, owner of Bella, agreed. There are very few commu nities that have what we have here in Winter Park, and I think Fashion Week is very much a And the best people to style the runway show under the great white tent, which is Oct. 20, are the stores that line Park Avenue. Many boutiques will be involved, each show ing 10 looks that represent their stores unique style. You get to pull out all your creativity, said Blair DeLongy, vice president of retail opera tions for the three mens stores in the show: John Craig, Cur PHOTO BY STEVEN BARNHART OBSERVER STAFF Maitland Councilwoman Bev Reponen, top right, walked to Maitland Middle School with some of its students on Oct. 3, International Walk to School Day.

Page 2 public. Schieferdecker had called for his resignation, but Bonus said it was verbal attacks on him and his family that led him to leave My spirit was broken by the vicious attacks on my character, Bonus said on Tuesday. I really lost my zeal for public service when people I considered more or less trustworthy or civic minded turned brutally cruel to me and my family and became overly ea ger and opportunist. Though Bonus said he was unlikely to ever re-enter politics, he was proud of what hed done while on Council. Im very proud of having advanced the pill mill initiative and the anti-casino gambling initiative, the reinstitution of the rial gardens, and the Love Pantry (in Maitland schools), he said. Those are things which I would hope to be positively remembered by. When the Maitland City Coun cil meets on Monday, Oct. 22, Council seat. I just hope we can heal this thing and go forward from there, Mayor Howard Schieferdecker said. Schieferdecker announced the seat will go to former elected the city. On Monday, Oct. 15, City Clerk Maria Waldrop emailed a list of 12 possible candidates ask from now until the city election in March. At press time Tuesday, three had responded expressing their interest: former Mayor Robert Breaux and former Council mem Dale McDonald, member of the citys planning and zoning com mission, also asked for his name to be added for consideration. Its an honor for anyone to be asked to serve another term and serve the city, so sure Im willing. Im happy to help out if they need me, said Breaux, who served as mayor from 1993-2000 and tem seat following his appointment to mayor in 2011 after Mayor Doug Kinson resigned to run for an Or ange County Commission seat. Flowers, president of the Per forming Arts of Maitland, had a similar sentiment, saying if the city needed him as someone whos up to date with city busi ness and proceedings, he would step up to the position. My reasoning is its a shortterm commitment on my part, and the city needs someone whos up to speed and can jump right in, he said. but not immediately throwing his name into the ring, is Kinson, who says hell do what he can to help in the transition if hes called upon, but its not something Im going to push for. Councilwoman Linda Frosch, who following the March city election could be the only remain ing seated member of the existing Council pending Councilman Ivan Valdes decision to re-run for his seat says anyone who has experience previously serving the job. The good thing is that were moving forward and well hope fully get a former Council mem ber in the seat theyre all very The Council members will dis cuss their options during the Oct. 22 meeting, Schieferdecker said, to get three of the four members votes taking Bonus seat.

In 2009 they applied for a Department of Transporta tion grant on behalf of the school to enhance safety along the main routes into Dommerich and Mait land Middle. The grant ended up building a new sidewalk along Arapaho Boulevard and added Lane. On Oct. 3, the students were greeted by Maitland Mayor How ard Schieferdecker and accom panied by Councilwoman Bev Reponen. Reponen said she sees it as a way to introduce the kids to a healthy lifestyle. I learned how to run and jog when I was in school, Reponen told the students and faculty on the walk. I lived a mile away form the school and I was late a lot. And my mom said I could come home for lunch. So I had to run. Three seventh-graders who dont usually walk made the twomile journey from the edge of Winter Park to the school. Abby Taylor, one of the three students, usually rides in her parents car, but the free incentives got her and her friends to make the walk, even if it did mean they had to leave at 8 a.m. to get to the school by 9:30.

She said each of her stores looks will encompass lessly cool and sophisticated Americana. Its time to let your store shine, she said. Im excited to see all our ideas come to life. Self-proclaimed new girl on the block, Lisa West of Charyli is using Fashion Week to show Coast fun among all the East Coast and New Yorkinspired clothes featured at other stores in Winter shes working hard to create a name for herself in the fashion community. not going to see it anywhere else on the Avenue, West said. I want to stand on my own with my own look. Being a part of Fashion Week is a great way to get noticed, and to elevate your stores image in the minds of customers, Blackwelder said. It brings people in the door long after Fashion Week is over. Debbie Farah, whose Bajalia store will feature accessories on the runway, said she joined last year to be discovered. And after the show was over, she put her looks in her stores window so that au dience members could connect the dots and take what impressed them on the runway and make it their own. Its not just about that night, said Farah, whose store is the only fair trade business in the show. All the boutiques said that being a part of Fash ion Week brought more people into their stores, and that it also brought each other into fellow Fashion Week participants stores. They said its been a good way to build relationships, network and join together for a common goal outside just their own four walls. Its a great opportunity for us to all get togeth er and collaborate, said Traci Kabran, owner of Sultre. We all have the same love. And that love all bubbles over on the night of the Runway Show, with many ladies biting their adjustments and letting out that last nervous whoosh of air as their hard work takes a walk. DeLongy, for one, said she cant control the jump ing up and down or the screaming with pride and happiness. The minute those girls walk out I love it when you see it done and all together its so ex citing, Blackwelder said. And after the last girl walks, I start to think about next year.

On Oct. 11, the Bach Festival Societys Visiting Artist Series presented famed guitarist Paul Galbraith, in Rollins Colleges Tiedtke Hall, in a varied program illustrating what highly gifted hands can do on the frets and strings of a guitar. Mr. Galbraith is surely a guitar exponent of world rank and is will ever hear. He has the eerie ability to create arpeggios, which tie individual notes together in a legato fashion that is a kind of phrasing legerdemain. He man doings with grace and ease. Of particular interest were the Bach Lute Suite and the Hindemith Harp Sonata, both transcribed for guitar by Mr. Galbraith. The program closed with 20 Variations and Fugues on Las Folias de Espana by Manuel Ponce. Mr. Galbraith plays an eightstring guitar, which allows him to perform his own adaptations of his selections with a breadth of sound otherwise impossible to achieve. The familiar and beautiful Spanish Dance Number 5 Anda luza by Enrique Granados was a special audience pleaser. If I could ent in the programming, it would have been for a few moments of rhythmic, dramatic climax to inject more variety and excitement into an otherwise somewhat bland evening. I hoped, in vain, for at least an encore of full-blooded Flamenco, or Mexican stomp and romp, just to come down to the plebian earth, where most guitars are played.

KEEP UP WITH MAITLAND NEWS AND EVENTS!www.IndependenceLane.com Facebook.com/ItsMyMaitland Calendar The Winter Park Wildcats (1-5) scored two unanswered touchdowns in the fourth quarter, but it wasnt enough to catch the Evans Trojans on Oct. 12, as they fell 35-19. Now theyll hope to regroup against an East River (2-4) team thats also struggling may give Winter Park quarterback Asiantii Woulard an opportunity to air out the foot ball, having given up plenty of long dis tance passing plays so far this season. After last weeks loss, theyll be looking Their game against the Evans Trojans last week began with a wild Trojans scor ing run that would easily outpace Winter Park until the fourth quarter, eventually stretching the lead to blowout range before At that point the game seemed out of reach for the Wildcats, with the momentum leading to a big win for Evans. But Woulard was too little too late. The homecoming loss gave Winter Park a 1-5 record, while Evans improved to 5-1. The Cats will return home for a showdown against East River at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. Edgewater ference between an unlikely Edgewater win and a would-be victory for Dr. Phillips, but Oct. 12, it was anything but decided. The Panthers (7-0) would prevail 21-14 after taking an attempt to avoid a safety turned into a touchdown return. Early in the game the Panthers were up ered, led by quarterback J.B. Woodman who found Waynedriko Smith en route to the end zone in the second quarter. Unusu ally absent from the end zone was running back Jon Altman, as the Eagles running fense. The Eagles will be looking to turn around from that tough loss against an equally dangerous Oviedo (5-1) on Thurs p.m. at Edgewater. It took two overtime periods for the UCF Knights to vanquish the team with the worst record in Conference USA. Now the Knights (4-2, 2-0) are hoping to make shorter work of a Memphis team thats struggled against far weaker op ponents than the Southern Miss squad the Knights beat in a 38-31 thriller on Oct. 13. But theyll have to do it on the road. Knowing that Southern Miss (0-6, 0-2) owned the worst record in the confer the Golden Eagles keeping pace with them the entire game. That came despite quarterback Blake Bortles throwing a personal best 272 passing yards, and running back Storm Johnson and wide receiver J.J. Worton both having some of their best performances of their careers. UCFs defense couldnt seem to stop ground, where they ran for 194 yards, averaging 5.4 yards per carry in the pro for the Eagles, who kept pace with the Knights throughout the game. But the Knights excelled in crucial plays, converting all three of their fourth down attempts. Where they struggled was on their of fensive and defensive lines, which both allowed the Eagles to penetrate far more often than the Knights are used to. Bor tles was sacked three times in the game, and the Knights were collectively tack led behind the line of scrimmage nearly a dozen times. Meanwhile Eagles run ning back Jalen Richard perforated the Knights D-line for 88 yards, averaging 6.7 yards per carry. Staring down another C-USA team are looking at another opportunity for an easy win. Memphis record could prove less deceptive than that of Southern Miss. While the Golden Eagles winless record came from a punishing schedule against NCAA contenders Nebraska, Louis ville and Boise State, the Tigers have struggled against such obscure teams as Tennessee-Martin, Arkansas State and Middle Tennessee State. The only team the Tigers have played all season that the Knights have experience with outcomes may be the most telling: in consecutive weeks UCF beat the Pirates 40-20 and Memphis lost to them 41-7. in Memphis, televised on CSS Sports.

Still in his apron, Ergood an nounced the signing of the charter for the incorporation of the city of Winter Park. As he spoke about the city of Winter Parks achievements and successes, residents smiled and nodded in agreement. that most Winter Park residents had ever seen John Ergood, let alone hear him speak. Although one of Winter Parks most promi nent residents, Ergood hasnt been around very much lately, likely be cause hes been dead for 80 years. On Friday, Oct. 12, the city of Winter Park celebrated and remem bered the towns beginnings and the people who founded the city with speeches and reenactments. Kenneth Murrah played John Er good and told the community how the little wood building now Penzeys Spices was not only a grocery store for the town, but the second story served as both school. The rear of the building storeowner, Ergood was named postmaster in 1887. I think the residents know we have a little gem here, said Mur rah, a Winter Park resident for 68 years. We have good schools, good leadership, a very attractive busi ness district, and wonderful cultur al and educational opportunities. [Our] residents participate in civic life with a determination to maintain the quality of life we en joy here now, he said. Murrahs wife, Ann Hicks Mur rah, has been a Winter Park resident for 36 years. Shes lived in Washing ton, D.C., and Manhattan as well as other cities, but says Winter Park has something special. Its beautiful and the citizens really care about preserving that beauty, she said. I found the reenactment of the signing of the the involvement of so many parts of the community and the impres sive cake. In addition to the reenactments of John Ergood and Gus Hender son a newspaper publisher in strumental in the founding of the city leaders from the community spoke about the history of Winter Park and why it remains such a great town to live in and be a part of today. Rollins College President Lewis Duncan spoke of the history of both the city of Winter Park and Rollins. For the last 125 years Winter Park and Rollins College have been in terwoven, he said. Anytime to recognize the leg acy of the agency, Ill jump on it, Police Chief Brett Railey said. The Police Department had its own cel ebration earlier that day, celebrat ing its 125th anniversary. Railey gives credit to the community for the department and the citys ac complishments. Everything that happens in ev ery department of the city is [to] the service of the residents, he said. Following the ceremony, the speakers, community members and guests gathered around two cakes provided by The Flour Shop and sang Happy Birthday, which was led by emcee Thaddeus Seymour, president emeritus of Rollins Col lege. After the cake was cut, people remained at Ergood Hall, talking about the city and the history that made it what it is today. [The day] was full of help ful reminders of our heritage, and the fact that we shouldnt take the quality of our life here for granted, Ann said.

Living a perfectly balanced life sounds wonderful. Who wouldnt want to tip-toe through life in a state of blissful harmony? But despite our best efforts to maintain equilibrium, life has a way of knocking us down in unexpected ways. As a boy, I felt great freedom whenever I rode my bike. That all changed the day the Bully stepped onto my street. As I rode by, the Bully reached to the ground, picked up a stone, and hurled it. It missed me, but the evil thing wedged itself into my bikes front spokes, jamming the wheel to an instant stop. I ipped over the handlebars and opped onto the side of the road. It was an early lesson in life-isnt-always-fair. The turn of the economy, the loss of job, an illness, a death, a betrayal, an elusive goal -these are the things that unexpectedly knock us down. But even when recovery seems impossible, we can always get up; we can nd our way back to balance.Recovering from a Knock-DownRegaining your balance after life pushes you overMany people are unbalanced simply because hey have no awareness of the core values that keep them centered. Theyve never answered the question, What matters most to me? The best answers are ones that remains unchanged even when circumstances shift. Your balance should be de ned by who you are and who you are becoming (character) rather than who youre with or what you have (circumstance).By Tim Tedder Prior to earning his Masters Degree in Counseling from Indiana Wesleyan University, Tim spent nearly 20 years as a leader and teacher, focusing on spiritual and personal growth issues for individuals and families. In his speaking and counseling, he aims to creatively communicate a message of hope and healing to wounded people. rfntbfbttbnfnnbnnbbtbbtnfb1 2 3bInevitably, a bully will show up along your path with a rock in his hand. If you try to convince yourself that youre somehow immune, reality will eventually teach you otherwise. We all experience unexpected hurts and failures. Be prepared without being pessimistic. Keep focus on your balance, but be ready for rocks. Once youve experienced a fall, you can choose to respond in one of three ways: denial (ignoring your distress), obsession (continuously focusing on your distress), or healing. Healing, of course, is the preferred choice. Give yourself enough time to recover. Your healing may come in hours or years, but let it happen. If you cant do it alone, get help. Last New Years Eve, I sat with a friend, Sarah, discussing our New Years Resolutions. She said she wanted to be more grateful and, of course, lose 10 pounds. As of last month, she couldnt remember her rst resolution and believes she gained a pound or two. How many times have you resolved to make a change only to forget about it weeks later? Weve all done it, and usually after a few weeks our decision to lose weight, watch less TV, get more sleep, or call our parents more is nothing but a mist in our memory. So does this mean we should give up on trying to change? I dont think so. 1. Start Small: Dont set out to lose weight, communicate better, and follow a budget all in one month. Pick just one goal to focus on. Pick something you are passionate about, allowing you to feel excited and proud as you notice the changes taking place in your life. 2. Be Mindful: Keep your change in the forefront of your mind. Set reminders on your phone or in emails. If youre less techy put sticky notes on your mirror. One of the main reasons we fail to make lasting change is because we honestly forget what were trying to do. Our familiar patterns take over and we fall back into old habits. In order to break those patterns, we need to shift our way of thinking. Keeping your change in mind as much as possible will increase the probability of changing. Begin every day with journaling, reminding yourself of the change you desire, why you want it, and what might get in your way that day. 3. Tell Somebody, or Everybody: It helps to have accountability. Telling a friend or group of friends and asking them to follow up is a great motivation. Tweeting your milestones and having friends cheer you on helps you feel like youre not alone in your endeavor. If youre the writing type, start a blog to chronicle your journey. They key is to make your change a part of your daily conversation. 4. Keep it Interesting: Deciding to run a half marathon is so much more exciting than deciding to lose 10 pounds. Committing to weekly date nights sounds more fun than communicating better. Volunteering with your kids is a great way to spend more time as a family. You will stay more interested and focused if you set a goal that tells a story rather than one that just measures change. 5. Evaluate Weekly: Once youve made a decision for change, schedule a weekly meeting with yourself; put it on your calendar and stick with it. During that meeting, evaluate your progress honestly. Solicit feedback. Make changes for the week coming up and determine how you will stay mindful. If youre having trouble moving forward, assess your need to seek advice or wisdom. Change is hard but not impossible. With these tips you can increase your ability to implement change in your life and begin living the life you want.Five Ways To Turn Your Desires Into Lasting ChangeMaking Change Last Here are 5 ways to turn your desires into lasting change right now!Julia began her career as a social worker in Philadelphia working with foster children.

If you have credit card debt youre not alone. The average credit card debt per household is a whopping $15,799. In these challenging economic times, consumers are increasingly nding themselves in dif cult nancial situations. People have lost jobs and many have to resort to using credit cards just to pay the bills. McCoy Federal Credit Union recognized this growing problem in the Central Florida community and devised a plan to help. Our Credit Rebuilding program offers a variety of nancial options that assists members with rebuilding credit and managing debt. Taking a loan is probably not a step most people think about when starting a credit rebuild plan but there are loan options available that help to rebuild credit by allowing you to borrow against your savings. A share secured loan uses the balance of a share savings account to guarantee a loan. Share secured loans offer a low interest rate and the amount of the loan can be as low as a paycheck amount. Although the savings account is used as collateral, your money continues to earn dividends (interest). Best of all there is no need to liquidate savings and a share secured loan does not require a credit report. Share secured credit cards are also an option if you are looking to extend your purchasing power without affecting your wallet. Secured credit cards are also secured by a share savings account and credit limits may be as low as $500 with credit lines available up to $10,000. Share secured credit cards offers no annual fee and credit life insurance. We offer the CU Rewards program, which allows points earned for every dollar spent, and no charge to redeem points. As with a share secured loan, there is no need to liquidate savings with the share secured credit card option. McCoy also provides members free access to money management and nancial education services. Accel Members Financial Counseling, the credit unions personal money management partner program, offers a comprehensive nancial support system that is backed by 45 years of experience. This service is free and provides online educational tools and unlimited access to certi ed Accel Financial Counselors. A toll free information line is available to assist members with various nancial concerns and personalized answers to questions on money management and debt repayment, among others. For more information go to www.mccoyfcu.org. Let McCoy Federal Credit Union assist with your personal nancial goals and needs.

Time to reexamine Join the JCC to raise money for research Oftentimes, Christians are accused of imposing their beliefs on others in the public arena, especially when it comes to hot topics such as sexual morality. However, I have had numerous people try to impose their secular beliefs on me. If I didnt accept the party line, I was a dumb fundamentalist. Well, I am willing to concede some ground on my personal intellectual abilities, but the truth is, there have been some very smart people who have held to a vibrant faith in Christ.

Bonus resigned Thursday, Oct. 11, following his name appearing numerous times on the client list of an east Orange County brothel, and a DUI from December 2011 going Students at Dommerich Elemen tary School and Maitland Middle School observed International Walk to School Day by using alternative means to get to school on Oct. 3. More than 250 students at Maitland Middle walked or rode their bikes to school, an increase of 40 percent from regular school days, said Michelle Sartor, the head of the schools WalknRoll program. Sartor and another mother began the WalknRoll program in 2008 to encourage more students to ride bikes or walk to school as a way of living healthy. Since then they have seen an increase in students walking or biking. Particularly on the one day a month when they have an incentive program to get students to partici pate. It can be a lifelong habit if you ride a half a mile to school, Sartor said. You might start doing it some where besides your school. The incentives, usually small items such as stress balls, water bottles or backpacks, are given on a participa tion basis. The more often students participate in the monthly event, the better the reward, Sartor said. There are bigger items though, such as bike A billowing white tent sets whats to come. This week, Harrietts Park Avenue Fashion Week organizers hope to serve up the high est fashion, hanging gracefully, modernly, beautifully and even sometimes a little eccentrically on models trained to represent the city like theres no better place for fashion on Earth. They say its their chance to show everyone that Win ter Park shouldnt be ignored when it comes to dressing well. And the atmosphere Fashion Week creates changes the city for a week, transporting resi dents and visitors to a place forward. All the parties, the clothes and the celebration of creativ ity add an extra spark to the Avenue, said Paige Blackwelder, chair of Fashion Week and owner of Tuni on Park Avenue. You can tell that theres something in the air, Blackwelder said. It really shows Winter Park has style and it has fashion. Susan Johnson, owner of Bella, agreed. There are very few commu nities that have what we have here in Winter Park, and I think Fashion Week is very much a And the best people to style the runway show under the great white tent, which is Oct. 20, are the stores that line Park Avenue.

Page 2 public. Schieferdecker had called for his resignation, but Bonus said it was verbal attacks on him and his family that led him to leave My spirit was broken by the vicious attacks on my character, Bonus said on Tuesday. I really lost my zeal for public service when people I considered more or less trustworthy or civic minded turned brutally cruel to me and my family and became overly ea ger and opportunist. Though Bonus said he was unlikely to ever re-enter politics, he was proud of what hed done while on Council. Im very proud of having advanced the pill mill initiative and the anti-casino gambling initiative, the reinstitution of the rial gardens, and the Love Pantry (in Maitland schools), he said. Those are things which I would hope to be positively remembered by. When the Maitland City Coun cil meets on Monday, Oct. 22, Council seat. I just hope we can heal this thing and go forward from there, Mayor Howard Schieferdecker said. Schieferdecker announced the seat will go to former elected the city. On Monday, Oct. 15, City Clerk Maria Waldrop emailed a list of 12 possible candidates askfrom now until the city election in March. At press time Tuesday, three had responded expressing their interest: former Mayor Robert Breaux and former Council mem Dale McDonald, member of the citys planning and zoning com mission, also asked for his name to be added for consideration. Its an honor for anyone to be asked to serve another term and serve the city, so sure Im willing. Im happy to help out if they need me, said Breaux, who served as mayor from 1993-2000 and tem seat following his appointment to mayor in 2011 after Mayor Doug Kinson resigned to run for an Or ange County Commission seat. Flowers, president of the Per forming Arts of Maitland, had a similar sentiment, saying if the city needed him as someone whos up to date with city busi ness and proceedings, he would step up to the position. My reasoning is its a shortterm commitment on my part, and the city needs someone whos up to speed and can jump right in, he said. but not immediately throwing his name into the ring, is Kinson, who says hell do what he can to help in the transition if hes called upon, but its not something Im going to push for. Councilwoman Linda Frosch, who following the March city election could be the only remain ing seated member of the existing Council pending Councilman Ivan Valdes decision to re-run for his seat says anyone who has experience previously serving the job. The good thing is that were moving forward and well hope fully get a former Council mem ber in the seat theyre all very The Council members will dis cuss their options during the Oct. 22 meeting, Schieferdecker said, to get three of the four members votes taking Bonus seat.

In 2009 they applied for a Department of Transporta tion grant on behalf of the school to enhance safety along the main routes into Dommerich and Mait land Middle. The grant ended up building a new sidewalk along Arapaho Boulevard and added Lane. On Oct. 3, the students were greeted by Maitland Mayor How ard Schieferdecker and accom panied by Councilwoman Bev Reponen. Reponen said she sees it as a way to introduce the kids to a healthy lifestyle. I learned how to run and jog when I was in school, Reponen told the students and faculty on the walk. I lived a mile away form the school and I was late a lot. And my mom said I could come home for lunch. So I had to run. Three seventh-graders who dont usually walk made the twomile journey from the edge of Winter Park to the school. Abby Taylor, one of the three students, usually rides in her parents car, but the free incentives got her and her friends to make the walk, even if it did mean they had to leave at 8 a.m. to get to the school by 9:30.WALK | Program builds new sidewalks CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE PHOTO BY STEVEN BARNHART OBSERVER STAFFMayor Howard Schieferdecker greets Maitland Middle students on their way to class.

She said each of her stores looks will encompass lessly cool and sophisticated Americana. Its time to let your store shine, she said. Im excited to see all our ideas come to life.

I want to stand on my own with my own look. Being a part of Fashion Week is a great way to get noticed, and to elevate your stores image in the minds of customers, Blackwelder said. It brings people in the door long after Fashion Week is over. Debbie Farah, whose Bajalia store will feature accessories on the runway, said she joined last year to be discovered. And after the show was over, she put her looks in her stores window so that au dience members could connect the dots and take what impressed them on the runway and make it their own. Its not just about that night, said Farah, whose store is the only fair trade business in the show. All the boutiques said that being a part of Fash ion Week brought more people into their stores, and that it also brought each other into fellow Fashion Week participants stores. They said its been a good way to build relationships, network and join together for a common goal outside just their own four walls. Its a great opportunity for us to all get togeth er and collaborate, said Traci Kabran, owner of Sultre. We all have the same love. And that love all bubbles over on the night of the Runway Show, with many ladies biting their adjustments and letting out that last nervous whoosh of air as their hard work takes a walk. DeLongy, for one, said she cant control the jump ing up and down or the screaming with pride and happiness. The minute those girls walk out I love it when you see it done and all together its so ex citing, Blackwelder said. And after the last girl walks, I start to think about next year.

On Oct. 11, the Bach Festival Societys Visiting Artist Series presented famed guitarist Paul Galbraith, in Rollins Colleges Tiedtke Hall, in a varied program illustrating what highly gifted hands can do on the frets and strings of a guitar. Mr. Galbraith is surely a guitar exponent of world rank and is will ever hear. He has the eerie ability to create arpeggios, which tie individual notes together in a legato fashion that is a kind of phrasing legerdemain. He mandoings with grace and ease. Of particular interest were the Bach Lute Suite and the Hindemith Harp Sonata, both transcribed for guitar by Mr. Galbraith. The program closed with 20 Variations and Fugues on Las Folias de Espana by Manuel Ponce. Mr. Galbraith plays an eightstring guitar, which allows him to perform his own adaptations of his selections with a breadth of sound otherwise impossible to achieve. The familiar and beautiful Spanish Dance Number 5 Anda luza by Enrique Granados was a special audience pleaser. If I could ent in the programming, it would have been for a few moments of rhythmic, dramatic climax to inject more variety and excitement into an otherwise somewhat bland evening. I hoped, in vain, for at least an encore of full-blooded Flamenco, or Mexican stomp and romp, just to come down to the plebian earth, where most guitars are played.Paul Galbraith, master guitarist, in Rollins recitalLOUIS RONEY Observer Staff

KEEP UP WITH MAITLAND NEWS AND EVENTS!www.IndependenceLane.com Facebook.com/ItsMyMaitland Calendar The Winter Park Wildcats (1-5) scored two unanswered touchdowns in the fourth quarter, but it wasnt enough to catch the Evans Trojans on Oct. 12, as they fell 35-19. Now theyll hope to regroup against an East River (2-4) team thats also struggling may give Winter Park quarterback Asiantii Woulard an opportunity to air out the foot ball, having given up plenty of long dis tance passing plays so far this season. After last weeks loss, theyll be looking Their game against the Evans Trojans last week began with a wild Trojans scor ing run that would easily outpace Winter Park until the fourth quarter, eventually stretching the lead to blowout range before At that point the game seemed out of reach for the Wildcats, with the momentum leading to a big win for Evans. But Woulard was too little too late. The homecoming loss gave Winter Park a 1-5 record, while Evans improved to 5-1. The Cats will return home for a showdown against East River at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. Edgewater ference between an unlikely Edgewater win and a would-be victory for Dr. Phillips, but Oct. 12, it was anything but decided. The Panthers (7-0) would prevail 21-14 after taking an attempt to avoid a safety turned into a touchdown return. Early in the game the Panthers were up ered, led by quarterback J.B. Woodman who found Waynedriko Smith en route to the end zone in the second quarter. Unusu ally absent from the end zone was running back Jon Altman, as the Eagles running fense. The Eagles will be looking to turn around from that tough loss against an equally dangerous Oviedo (5-1) on Thurs p.m. at Edgewater. It took two overtime periods for the UCF Knights to vanquish the team with the worst record in Conference USA. Now the Knights (4-2, 2-0) are hoping to make shorter work of a Memphis team thats struggled against far weaker op ponents than the Southern Miss squad the Knights beat in a 38-31 thriller on Oct. 13. But theyll have to do it on the road. Knowing that Southern Miss (0-6, 0-2) owned the worst record in the confer the Golden Eagles keeping pace with them the entire game. That came despite quarterback Blake Bortles throwing a personal best 272 passing yards, and running back Storm Johnson and wide receiver J.J. Worton both having some of their best performances of their careers. UCFs defense couldnt seem to stop ground, where they ran for 194 yards, averaging 5.4 yards per carry in the pro for the Eagles, who kept pace with the Knights throughout the game. But the Knights excelled in crucial plays, converting all three of their fourth down attempts. Where they struggled was on their of fensive and defensive lines, which both allowed the Eagles to penetrate far more often than the Knights are used to. Bor tles was sacked three times in the game, and the Knights were collectively tack led behind the line of scrimmage nearly a dozen times. Meanwhile Eagles running back Jalen Richard perforated the Knights D-line for 88 yards, averaging 6.7 yards per carry. Staring down another C-USA team are looking at another opportunity for an easy win. Memphis record could prove less deceptive than that of Southern Miss. While the Golden Eagles winless record came from a punishing schedule against NCAA contenders Nebraska, Louis ville and Boise State, the Tigers have struggled against such obscure teams as Tennessee-Martin, Arkansas State and Middle Tennessee State. The only team the Tigers have played all season that the Knights have experience with outcomes may be the most telling: in consecutive weeks UCF beat the Pirates 40-20 and Memphis lost to them 41-7. in Memphis, televised on CSS Sports.Knights head to Memphis after Southern Miss win ISAAC BABCOCK Observer StaffWinter Parks Cats lose four straight ISAAC BABCOCK Observer Staff HAUNTS AROUND TOWNVisit page 9 for our full Halloween events calendar.

Still in his apron, Ergood an nounced the signing of the charter for the incorporation of the city of Winter Park. As he spoke about the city of Winter Parks achievements and successes, residents smiled and nodded in agreement. that most Winter Park residents had ever seen John Ergood, let alone hear him speak. Although one of Winter Parks most promi nent residents, Ergood hasnt been around very much lately, likely because hes been dead for 80 years. On Friday, Oct. 12, the city of Winter Park celebrated and remem bered the towns beginnings and the people who founded the city with speeches and reenactments. Kenneth Murrah played John Er good and told the community how the little wood building now Penzeys Spices was not only a grocery store for the town, but the second story served as both school. The rear of the building storeowner, Ergood was named postmaster in 1887. I think the residents know we have a little gem here, said Mur rah, a Winter Park resident for 68 years. We have good schools, good leadership, a very attractive busi ness district, and wonderful cultur al and educational opportunities. [Our] residents participate in civic life with a determination to maintain the quality of life we en joy here now, he said. Murrahs wife, Ann Hicks Mur rah, has been a Winter Park resident for 36 years. Shes lived in Washington, D.C., and Manhattan as well as other cities, but says Winter Park has something special. Its beautiful and the citizens really care about preserving that beauty, she said. I found the reenactment of the signing of the the involvement of so many parts of the community and the impres sive cake. In addition to the reenactments of John Ergood and Gus Hender son a newspaper publisher instrumental in the founding of the city leaders from the community spoke about the history of Winter Park and why it remains such a great town to live in and be a part of today. Rollins College President Lewis Duncan spoke of the history of both the city of Winter Park and Rollins. For the last 125 years Winter Park and Rollins College have been interwoven, he said. Anytime to recognize the leg acy of the agency, Ill jump on it, Police Chief Brett Railey said. The Police Department had its own cel ebration earlier that day, celebrat ing its 125th anniversary. Railey gives credit to the community for the department and the citys ac complishments. Everything that happens in every department of the city is [to] the service of the residents, he said. Following the ceremony, the speakers, community members and guests gathered around two cakes provided by The Flour Shop and sang Happy Birthday, which was led by emcee Thaddeus Seymour, president emeritus of Rollins Col lege. After the cake was cut, people remained at Ergood Hall, talking about the city and the history that made it what it is today. [The day] was full of helpful reminders of our heritage, and the fact that we shouldnt take the quality of our life here for granted, Ann said.PHOTOS BY STEVEN BARNHART THE OBSERVERA cake, top, in the shape of how Winter Park looked 125 years ago was provided by Winter Park bakery The Flour Shop.

Living a perfectly balanced life sounds wonderful. Who wouldnt want to tip-toe through life in a state of blissful harmony? But despite our best efforts to maintain equilibrium, life has a way of knocking us down in unexpected ways. As a boy, I felt great freedom whenever I rode my bike. That all changed the day the Bully stepped onto my street. As I rode by, the Bully reached to the ground, picked up a stone, and hurled it. It missed me, but the evil thing wedged itself into my bikes front spokes, jamming the wheel to an instant stop. I ipped over the handlebars and opped onto the side of the road. It was an early lesson in life-isnt-always-fair. The turn of the economy, the loss of job, an illness, a death, a betrayal, an elusive goal -these are the things that unexpectedly knock us down. But even when recovery seems impossible, we can always get up; we can nd our way back to balance.Recovering from a Knock-DownRegaining your balance after life pushes you overMany people are unbalanced simply because hey have no awareness of the core values that keep them centered. Theyve never answered the question, What matters most to me? The best answers are ones that remains unchanged even when circumstances shift. Your balance should be de ned by who you are and who you are becoming (character) rather than who youre with or what you have (circumstance).By Tim Tedder Prior to earning his Masters Degree in Counseling from Indiana Wesleyan University, Tim spent nearly 20 years as a leader and teacher, focusing on spiritual and personal growth issues for individuals and families. In his speaking and counseling, he aims to creatively communicate a message of hope and healing to wounded people. rfntbfbttbnfnnbnnbbtbbtnfb1 2 3bInevitably, a bully will show up along your path with a rock in his hand. If you try to convince yourself that youre somehow immune, reality will eventually teach you otherwise. We all experience unexpected hurts and failures. Be prepared without being pessimistic. Keep focus on your balance, but be ready for rocks. Once youve experienced a fall, you can choose to respond in one of three ways: denial (ignoring your distress), obsession (continuously focusing on your distress), or healing. Healing, of course, is the preferred choice. Give yourself enough time to recover. Your healing may come in hours or years, but let it happen. If you cant do it alone, get help. Last New Years Eve, I sat with a friend, Sarah, discussing our New Years Resolutions. She said she wanted to be more grateful and, of course, lose 10 pounds. As of last month, she couldnt remember her rst resolution and believes she gained a pound or two. How many times have you resolved to make a change only to forget about it weeks later? Weve all done it, and usually after a few weeks our decision to lose weight, watch less TV, get more sleep, or call our parents more is nothing but a mist in our memory. So does this mean we should give up on trying to change? I dont think so. 1. Start Small: Dont set out to lose weight, communicate better, and follow a budget all in one month. Pick just one goal to focus on. Pick something you are passionate about, allowing you to feel excited and proud as you notice the changes taking place in your life. 2. Be Mindful: Keep your change in the forefront of your mind. Set reminders on your phone or in emails. If youre less techy put sticky notes on your mirror. One of the main reasons we fail to make lasting change is because we honestly forget what were trying to do. Our familiar patterns take over and we fall back into old habits. In order to break those patterns, we need to shift our way of thinking. Keeping your change in mind as much as possible will increase the probability of changing. Begin every day with journaling, reminding yourself of the change you desire, why you want it, and what might get in your way that day. 3. Tell Somebody, or Everybody: It helps to have accountability. Telling a friend or group of friends and asking them to follow up is a great motivation. Tweeting your milestones and having friends cheer you on helps you feel like youre not alone in your endeavor. If youre the writing type, start a blog to chronicle your journey. They key is to make your change a part of your daily conversation. 4. Keep it Interesting: Deciding to run a half marathon is so much more exciting than deciding to lose 10 pounds. Committing to weekly date nights sounds more fun than communicating better. Volunteering with your kids is a great way to spend more time as a family. You will stay more interested and focused if you set a goal that tells a story rather than one that just measures change. 5. Evaluate Weekly: Once youve made a decision for change, schedule a weekly meeting with yourself; put it on your calendar and stick with it. During that meeting, evaluate your progress honestly. Solicit feedback. Make changes for the week coming up and determine how you will stay mindful. If youre having trouble moving forward, assess your need to seek advice or wisdom. Change is hard but not impossible. With these tips you can increase your ability to implement change in your life and begin living the life you want.Five Ways To Turn Your Desires Into Lasting ChangeMaking Change Last Here are 5 ways to turn your desires into lasting change right now!Julia began her career as a social worker in Philadelphia working with foster children.

If you have credit card debt youre not alone. The average credit card debt per household is a whopping $15,799. In these challenging economic times, consumers are increasingly nding themselves in dif cult nancial situations. People have lost jobs and many have to resort to using credit cards just to pay the bills. McCoy Federal Credit Union recognized this growing problem in the Central Florida community and devised a plan to help. Our Credit Rebuilding program offers a variety of nancial options that assists members with rebuilding credit and managing debt. Taking a loan is probably not a step most people think about when starting a credit rebuild plan but there are loan options available that help to rebuild credit by allowing you to borrow against your savings. A share secured loan uses the balance of a share savings account to guarantee a loan. Share secured loans offer a low interest rate and the amount of the loan can be as low as a paycheck amount. Although the savings account is used as collateral, your money continues to earn dividends (interest). Best of all there is no need to liquidate savings and a share secured loan does not require a credit report. Share secured credit cards are also an option if you are looking to extend your purchasing power without affecting your wallet. Secured credit cards are also secured by a share savings account and credit limits may be as low as $500 with credit lines available up to $10,000. Share secured credit cards offers no annual fee and credit life insurance. We offer the CU Rewards program, which allows points earned for every dollar spent, and no charge to redeem points. As with a share secured loan, there is no need to liquidate savings with the share secured credit card option. McCoy also provides members free access to money management and nancial education services. Accel Members Financial Counseling, the credit unions personal money management partner program, offers a comprehensive nancial support system that is backed by 45 years of experience. This service is free and provides online educational tools and unlimited access to certi ed Accel Financial Counselors. A toll free information line is available to assist members with various nancial concerns and personalized answers to questions on money management and debt repayment, among others.

Time to reexamineJoin the JCC to raise money for research Oftentimes, Christians are accused of imposing their beliefs on others in the public arena, especially when it comes to hot topics such as sexual morality. However, I have had numerous people try to impose their secular beliefs on me. If I didnt accept the party line, I was a dumb fundamentalist. Well, I am willing to concede some ground on my personal intellectual abilities, but the truth is, there have been some very smart people who have held to a vibrant faith in Christ.
