From the back rooms of barber shops and spaghetti houses to open saloons behind peepholes, underground establishments Even the vineyards found a way, selling dried grapes in containers marked with warn ings to avoid storage in jugs for more than 21 days due to risk of fermentation. Was this a lawabiding measure or a reminder of the fruits winemaking potential? But though glasses of wine transcended their legal taboo just after President Franklin Roos hibition remained in Florida for nearly 80 years. Within a few weeks, wine may A Prohibition Era law that limits the size of wine containers with a bill in the coming weeks with a signature from Gov. Rick Scott. The current law bans the sale of wine in containers greater than 1 gallon. But by July 1, wine could be available in 5.16 gallon steel kegs and sold on tap in local restaurants and bars. I think its way overdue, said Rick Brown, a Winter Springs Commissioner and own er of multiple Tijuana Flats res taurant locations. Florida is one of only two states the other being Utah that doesnt allow wineries to distribute wine in kegs. Lobbying for the bill earlier this year was Free Flow Wines, a California-based wine kegging company that pioneered premi um wine on tap as a concept. The state of Florida, being the number two wine market in the United States of America, is a very important market for all of our winery clients, said Free Flow Wines founder and chair man Dan Donahoe. All of these wineries are very interested in selling their wines on tap in Flor ida, from very large resorts like ments like Luma in Winter Park. The bill will allow a 5.1 gal lon reusable keg into the state of Florida, Donahoe said. That will eliminate, as soon as that from the trash cans at bars, res taurants and resorts in Florida... it equates to an enormous green factor and savings on trash. The recent bill also caught the attention of Eola Wine Company, a wine establishment in Winter Park with a selection of more than 70 wines by the glass. I think it would be some thing unique to offer our custom ers, said owner Scott Schrope. Theres a few of the white wines that would be great to have on keg. That would be fan tastic. Eola Wine Company General Manager Matt Coltrin gave his outlook on the future regarding kegs of wine in Florida. Bottling costs for wine are hugely expensive, so I think, in a matter of time, youll start to see some of the more innovative wineries trying it out, Coltrin said. I dont see it happening right away; it will take time to progress. Itll be interesting to see how it unfolds. Its been a bumpy road for FlexBus since March when LYNX announced it wouldnt be aiding in the implementation of an in telligent transport service set to launch later this year in Altamon te Springs, Mait land, Casselberry and Longwood. But with fa vorable votes from all four cit ies to seek privatization of the on-demand bus system designed are hoping for smoother sailing ahead. Its an opportunity to be on vative mass transit opportunity that, if its successful, which we With one year left until Sun Rail is set to take to the tracks passing through Winter Park, the city is teaming up with stu dents from Rollins College to ad dress a lingering loose end in the systems planning: the last mile. From DeBary to South Or lando, with Winter Park in be tween, the rail drops riders from station to station, but getting the isnt covered yet in the cur rent plans, said recent Rollins environmental studies graduate Ilana Feldman. As part of a grant issued by the Environmental Protection Agency to Rollins to ment of SunRail, she and two other students sought a solution for the problem through a citycentric bike share program. tion to whats called the last mile problem If theres a commuter rail that goes through town, it wont necessarily go to the exact location that the person would have to work, so as an incentive to use the commuter rail thered then be a bike program so they could get from the station to wherever they work or from the station to work, Feldman said. Rollins operates a bike share system of its own on campus, al lowing students, faculty and staff to check out bikes for three days at a time to commute around the community for no cost but this bike share program would span the mile radius of Winter Park to With SunRail thats coming in, I know its going to have peo ple coming and going for cam pus and a need for an expanded system, Rollins environmental studies and sustainability pro gram coordinator Ann Francis PHOTO BY SARAH WILSON THE OBSERVER Rollins may be setting the trend for a program that could help commuters using the upcoming SunRail system. Bicycles could get riders to and from the train stations.

Page 2 said. Feldman, along with her two fellow students Jenny Salchunas and Caitlyn Glatting, surveyed 100 Rollins students and 100 ran dom community members about a potential bike share program, and of similar programs wheeling into cities across the nation. From Portland, Ore., to Wash ington, D.C., and in-state in Mi ami Beach and in Broward Coun ty, they matched up feedback to already rolled out programs to come up with suggestions for Orlando and Winter Park. Their proposal, which they presented to Rollins faculty in April, fell in line with what the city of Winter Park is working to secure, said the citys Sustainability Coordinator Tim Maslow. This week, the city of Orlando is scheduled to move forward with a request for proposal to contract out the construction and management of 20 to 30 bike share kiosks in the city centered on and scheduled to launch with SunRail in May 2014. Maslow said Winter Park will serve on the selection committee in the process, and own as the only other SunRail city currently pursuing the bike share system. Each station would have an automated check-out kiosk with 10 bikes available to check out, which could then be returned to any other station in either city. If you get on at our SunRail station you can event rent a bike here, take it on SunRail and drop it off downtown or vice versa Its user friendly, Maslow said. The idea behind a bike share system falls in line with both Win ter Park and Rollins continuing commitments to sustainability, Maslow and Francis said. Fewer cars on the road, lower emissions, and increased physical activity, they said, make it a perfect match moving forward, especially as SunRail moves in. SunRail isnt just about Sun Rail, Maslow said. Its about getting around without a personal vehicle. To capitalize on that, and the connectedness and density of downtown Winter Park, he said the city is researching bike share station locations at the Winter Park Village, Hannibal Square, Rollins College and the Winter Park Public Library, all of which fall within a mile of the train sta tion. To evaluate how these pro posed stations will play into the citys transportation master plan, along with SunRail and other sustainable initiatives, the citys launching a new transportation study in the coming months. Everyones had these differ ent ideas what were doing is compiling all of those ideas into one cohesive plan, Maslow said. With the support of the city, along with Rollins and the city of Orlando, Rollins recent grad and research project participant Jenny Salchunas said shes hopeful that her teams research can help make a local bike share program a real ity. Theres a lot of programs that can help make this a success, she said, Its just a matter of getting everybody on board.

The system, which has been in the works for more than a decade, sets out to serve non-traditional bus riders looking for an alterna tive way to get to and from Sun Rail stations by serving them ondemand and within 12-minutes of a service call. The cities planned on LYNX offering to implement the systems demonstration phase, which is set to launch in Novem ber of this year, but when LYNX announced it was opting out in cials decided they would launch the system privately themselves. Maitland and Casselberry both agreed to join Altamonte Springs in securing a public-private part nership with a private transit vendor to operate the system last week, with Longwood being the last to fall in line agreeing to join on Monday. I think its better that we do it ourselves and take control of our own destiny, said Louis Ro tundo, state lobbyist for Maitland and Altamonte Springs, at Mait lands May 13 City Council meet ing. If the proposed system fails, he said, the cities then have the option to fall back to LYNX and its NeighborLYNX system that they transit technology developed for FlexBus. At the end of the game, I think its a cleaner process for the demonstration phase, he said. Funding for the yearlong demonstration of the system is planned through a 50 percent grant from the Florida Depart ment of Transportation, with the remaining cost split between the is to be determined. Glancy said Casselberry is ready to move forward with the partner cities to see the system through.

Click It or Ticket! The Winter Park Police De partment (WPPD) is joining state and local law enforcement agen cies all across the nation for the 2013 Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement wave. Stepped-up law enforcement activities will be conducted during this enforce ment wave, which runs through efforts toward unbelted vehicle occupants around the clock dur ing this time. Seat belts clearly save lives. In 2011 alone, seat belts saved an es timated 11,949 lives nationwide. Regular seat belt use is the single most effective way to protect peo ple and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes. Motorists are 75 percent less likely to be killed in a rollover crash if they are buckled up. From 2007-2011, 53 percent of the 121,507 passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes were unrestrained. In 2011, of the 21,253 passenger vehicle occupants killed in mo tor vehicle crashes nationwide, 52 percent were not wearing seat belt at the time of the crash. Re grettably, seat belt discussions too often revolve around adults in the front seats of vehicles. Child safety seats are often overlooked kids must be buckled as well. Your child seat can be installed for by appointment. The WPPD encourages every one to wear their seatbelts and use proper child safety equipment at all times, but is asking drivers to have a heightened sense of aware ness during the enforcement cam paign. The agency is encouraging compliance in lieu of having to issue citations as costly reminders of a law that everyone should be following every time they are in a vehicle. Remember its Click It or Ticket! Buckle up and encourage your loved ones to do the same.

Page 11 Thursday, May 23, 2013 Winter Park / Maitland Observer Death Benets Left to Someone with a Disability? What Happens?Caregivers routinely name their dependents with special needs as beneciaries of life insurance and annuity contracts and distribute money in wills to surviving issue without understanding how these payments will impact government benet eligibility. Inheritances and death benets distributed to someone with a disability may or may not cause the loss of government benets depending on the nature of the benet program. Various government programs available to them will be discussed below, as well as corrective actions that can be taken to preserve government benet eligibility. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a needs based program available to people with disabilities. When a recipient of SSI receives a death benet distribution, the surviving caregiver is often shocked when the Social Security Administration audits their nancial situation and terminates their SSI monthly payments and valuable corresponding Medicaid insurance benets to his or her dependent. SSI has very strict asset limitations and only allows their recipients to keep up to $2,000 in assets. A death claim payment can cause the immediate loss of these benets, until the payment is spent down below the $2,000 SSI limit. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) payments are made to adults with disabilities who have a previous qualifying employment record and have paid taxes into the system in recent years. It is considered an entitlement program, and Medicare benets will follow after receiving twenty-four months of these payments. A special needs child who is under age 22 and who is not working can obtain SSDI benets based on his or her parents prior earnings. Payments made under the SSDI program do not have asset restrictions. However, payments may be reduced if too many family members receive benet payments and exceed the family maximum. What steps can a caregiver take to preserve SSI and Medicaid if their dependent with special needs receives a death benet distribution, without spending down all the money? The solution is discussed below. The 1993 Omnibus Budget and Reconciliation Act (OBRA ) led Congress to provide special treatment for transfers to or for the benet of people with disabilities. Asset transfers could be made to special needs trusts by the person seeking SSI and Medicaid with no disqualication period, provided that the government agency is reimbursed for the cost of benets provided after the death of the person for whom the trust was established. Errors in planning for individuals with disabilities can be remedied under OBRA provisions. Yes, the trust may have payback provisions. However, money in the trust can be used on behalf of the person during his or her lifetime. This trust can certainly provide a safety net and help safeguard the immediate loss of government benets. Due to the complexity of federal and state laws, it may be helpful to have a specially trained professional to work with you, your attorney and other advisors when planning for the future of your dependent with special needs.
