Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013 Serving Winter Park, Maitland, Baldwin Park, College Park and Goldenrod 50+ tax WPMOBSERVER.COM Dogs owned by Winter Park residents may be allowed to roam the grounds of Central Park twice a year as a result of a new city ordinance adding to the citys history of dog contro versy spanning several years. Winter Park City Commis sioners voted unanimously dur ing last Mondays City Commis reading of the ordinance that allows dogs in Central Park for special events, also voting by a count of 4-1 to limit the park to only two dog events each year. The new ordinance would tweak the current law that pro hibits dogs in the 7-acre park, an ordinance set in place back in 2006 under former Mayor Ken Marchman. But some Commissioners dis agreed with the change, reason ing that the park should be left as a place for just residents to enjoy. We have 298 acres of parks, we have 17 acres of off-leash parks, and I believe dogs are al lowed in all of our parks, Com missioner Carolyn Cooper said. I just think its OK to say that Central Park is different. The new ordinance would give City Manager Randy Knight the task of approving the two events that allow dogs each year. Applicants wishing to host an event would have to submit rea sons why the dogs will be there, as well as a detailed description of how the dogs will be con tained within the park. This troubled Commissioner Sarah Sprinkel, who thought the ordinance gave the city manager too much discretion. Who knows whos always going to be our city manager, Sprinkel said. Im glad its Ran dy, but what if we get somebody in there with 500 dogs, so you have to be really careful about who you give that decision to. Commissioner Steven Leary said that he supported the ordi nance as long as event staff kept the park clean. I dont have a problem with this, Leary said. My only con cern is follow up; I want to make sure that the park is pristine after the event is over. Issues regarding dogs along the Park Avenue corridor have sprung up several times in recent years. In 2010, the Parks and Recre ation Advisory Board sought to ban permits that allowed dogcentered events along the Av enue, including the Pet Costume Contest put on by local company The Doggie Door. Members of the board explained that par ticipants continued to bring their dogs in Central Park, despite the active ordinance banning pets. The Board sent a letter to the City Commission later that year PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE OBSERVER Dogs have come close to Winter Parks Central Park, but hadnt been allowed to touch the grass.

City Commission looks at allowing dogs in Central Park twice a year TIM FREED Observer staff Please see DOGS on page 2 A two-year pilot program to allow chickens to take up resi dence in Maitland backyards months, pending recommenda tions of city boards to the City Council. The Maitland Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing to discuss a draft of the chicken ordinance at its Sept. 19 meeting. The ordinance as-is would establish a two-year pilot program to allow 15 house holds to roost a maximum of three hens in a coop no larger than 100 square feet. Planning and Zoning Com missioner Dale McDonald said the Commission members will likely hold one more public hear ing in October before they make a recommendation to the City Council. He said P&Z has received ongoing feedback over the or dinance from both chicken ad vocates and chicken opposition. of allowing the egg-laying fowl in Maitland backyards in March, and the Planning and Zoning Commission got the go-ahead from City Council to draft the or dinance in June.

The Knights would gain 507 yards in the game one of the best offensive performances ever for the Knights. Knights quarterback Blake Bortles dominated, with a strong 288-yard passing game including three touchdowns. J.J. Worton was his favorite target, with seven grabs for 101 yards. The Nittany Lions would score quarter and a half of the game, putting pressure on the Knights defense. But the Knights held the Lions, thanks to a crucial fumble forced by Terrance Plummer and recovery by Sean Maag as Penn State was nearing the UCF red zone late in the fourth quarter. That moment was the differ ence-maker, OLeary said. Running Back Storm Johnson led the team in rushing for the second time in three games, gain ing 117 net yards on 17 carries, including the Knights second touchdown of the game. The win was a historic mo ment for the Knights, who had never beaten a Big Ten Confer ence football team in seven prior Knights had defeated the Lions in three meetings.

The City Commission rejected the recommendation, and asked the board to come up with a po tential amendment to the animal ordinance instead, only to vote down an ordinance two months later that would have banned dogs along the Avenue during events that blocked-off the street. But emotions ran high once again on Monday as several resi dents spoke against the new ordi nance, fearing for the integrity of Central Park. The mayor frequently refers to Central Park as The Jewel, as do many other residents, Bon nie Jackson said. People deserve one space that is just for them, a green space where people can pic nic, read a book, throw a Frisbee, or watch a movie or a jazz concert without worrying about sitting in or stepping in waste left by a dog. Please dont turn our crown jewel into a porta-potty. Other residents raised con cerns of health hazards from dogs defecating in the park a bad combination with the numerous events where residents lay in the grass, Mary Randall said. I dont like the thought of hav ing to put a blanket down to go to an event on top of some place where people may have picked up after a dog, Randall said. That doesnt mean its clean and sanitary. Commissioners decided that the twice-a-year limit on dog events made sense, but how the city plans to restrict dogs while theyre in the park remains to be seen. approval before the City Commis C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE INTEGRITY LOYALTY UNWAVERING ENTHUSIASM Kelly L.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013 | Page 5 Lifestyles For the Porter family, a truly good summer means a trip to the beach. Their favorite part is tak ing a stroll along the boardwalk, peeking into the perfect little pastel whitewashed shops and stopping for an ice cream treat. behind the glass counter, metal scoops ready to plop a mound of moments they dream of all year. At home, they always missed the feeling, the nostalgic atmo sphere of a mom and pop ice cream shop serving the real deal, creamy ice cream. It had been Melanie Porters dream for years to recreate that family experience, so she did it herself. I always thought, gosh, what a happy industry to be in, Melanie said. Its just pure joy. So now, amongst the strip plazas and the buzz of cars zip ping along Orlando Avenue, things slow down just a bit where, out of an ordi nary parking lot, pops up a charming little cot tage called Lu Lus Ice Cream Shop. Its almost something out of a fairy tale, with its wavy yellow siding and multi-colored pastel birds decorate the walls, putting Lu Lus in its own garden, and intricate shutters frame the spot where a Porter family member greets customers. Customers tell them a trip there is something they havent experienced since they were children. People stop to take photos in front of the shop, and cant help but get some ice cream too. thing that nobody else had, said Mark Porter, Melanies husband. Nothing is quite like this.

All the ingredients are local and organic when possible. The dairy prod ucts all come from a Florida farm in Myakka City just a couple of hours away. We actually went to the farm and met the cow that made our ice cream, said Brandon Moss, Muses vice president. theres cake and frosting made in house by Muse. The bananas foster has homemade sauce and the fruits and fruit juices used are often from Florida farms. The ice creams are all made in small batches and pasteurized from scratch, which gives Moss and his wife control over the intensity of cream delivered weekly. We assure youre getting something thats fresh, Mark said. Ava loves that in their ice cream, you can see the chunks of fruit, and that the colors custom ers see are from the ingredients; At many ice cream places said. You can tell that its freshly made. Because the family runs the business themselves, and it doesnt cost much to power their little cottage, its possible for them to serve the premium ice cream that they do. Not only that, they serve it at an affordable price for families. A single scoop of ice cream costs just $1.75, and the most expensive item they have a banana split is $5. Melanies goal was to make a fun family for a family of four, and bring it down to $10. So those nights where a whole family takes a bike ride down to Lu Lus for a treat can happen a lot more often.

The tribal belly dancers wear a prairie-like skirt with layers upon layers of dozens of tassels tied around their waists. A quick twist of their hips sends each layer twirling. Up from there is the signature bare midriff with a coin deco rated top. The tops and bottoms of their bodies are in total control, perfectly level and still, while the middle of their bodies coil and twist in almost impossible ways. The music goes from a jazzy bass line groove to a Middle-Eastern sounding drum beat, as the danc ers create atmosphere with little yips. Lacey Sanchez, owner of Florida Tribal Dance (FTD) in Orlando, teaches and performs two genres of tribal belly danc ing. The dance was created about 20 years ago, combining the music and moves from cultures all over the world, including Afri can, Middle Eastern and Spanish, with a folkloric feel. When youre watching the dancers, its easy to imagine it comes from an ancient culture, but the dancing and com bination of moves, while referen tial, are something relatively new. The choreography can mix ballet, jazz, hip hop and club dancing. The options and inspirations are limitless. Because its American-made we get a lot of license to do that, its never a completely traditional dance, Lacey said. This dance is so far reaching, so global; this is something that really spans genres. Heavy costuming is an important element to the dance, especially for performances, and adds to the old-world feel. Lacey likes to pile on the accessories, and decorates herself with heavy, ethnic jewelry. Its theatrical. I dont feel complete unless Im 20 pounds heavier, she said with a laugh. Her studio offers improvisa tional tribal dance, which doesnt have a set choreography and instead has a lead dancer decid ing the dance on the spot and the group follows their cued moves. She also does tribal fusion belly dance, which com bines tribal moves with any other style of dance the choreographer chooses. mostly women, and many of the dancers have tattoos and pierc ings. Lacey herself has tattoos, and thick swirl plugs dangling from her ears. The tribal dance culture has drawn an alternative crowd for many years. It was kind of accepted for you to be different, said Alex Sanchez, Laceys husband, who also owns the tattoo studio Inner Image Ink, which shares a space with the FTD studio. But the types of people attend ing classes have expanded since 2006 when FTD started. Among the tattooed, stay-at-home moms are looking for a way to treat themselves, like Aivin Diaz, whose Latin dance background didnt prepare her for the chal lenges of learning tribal dance. Some dancers are lawyers outlet. Orlando resident Matt Drury spends a lot of his time dance studio in the area hes visiting. Dancers and instructors run the gamut of sizes and backgrounds, and while Drury is really the one male dancer that consis tently shows, he always feels at home. At FTD, Lacey wants people to feel welcomed with open arms, even if they wouldnt imagine theyd type of person she teaches. Dance doesnt belong in one body, she said.

One reason her students say they feel comfortable is their teacher. Lacey is effusive in her dance talk its a mile a minute, the passion is nearly tangible, and her husband Alex says shes almost obsessed. She gallops across the room to change the music between dance numbers, a smile never leaves her face and she says she bonds immediately with anyone who dances but it might be her incredibly warm personality, not just the dancing, that creates the bond.

Thanks to education and out reach efforts by hospice organiza tions throughout the country dur ing the past decade, awareness in and access to hospice care is on the rise. Many people now have a good understanding that the term hospice refers to end-of-life care the comfort-focused care provided to a patient who has a life expectancy prognosis of six months or less. On the other hand, most people might be surprised to see how dynamic hospice providers have become in their efforts to engage with their communities to promote overall health and well-being. For some time now, hospice providers have been expanding their efforts to help make every moment count for patients and their loved ones. Expert medical personnel and compassionate direct-care team members are still at the heart of hospice care and continue to meet the needs of patients by delivering the latest advancements in hospice and palliative care. But its truly a team approach. From volunteers who are ready and willing to run small errands for patients or just sit nearby to keep them company, to social workers and other care team members who help bring music and pet companionship to patients and respite care to families, to spiritual directors who can be engaged as needed, hospice providers are proactive in responding to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and families. Look out into the community today, however, and youll also see hospice providers offering memorial services, providing the latest information on grief recovery and advanced care directives, and working together with other community organiza tions on health-focused programs and events. Hospice providers are active beyond providing high quality direct patient care. For example, in any given viders offering support groups in various locations throughout the community on topics ranging to the importance of nutrition and exercise in the grief recov ery process. With these support an emphasis on addressing the latest research and providing information and education that can help the individual and the community. You can also see hospice providers active throughout the community providing memorial services for families and loved ones, coordinating special recog nitions for veterans throughout the year and on Veterans Day, and serving as points of contact on advance care planning on Na tional Healthcare Decisions Day all in an effort to be there for the community. And its not just their own events, hospice providers are quick to step up and support the efforts of other care organiza tions, such as Sweet Wars des sert contests that raise funds for good causes, Senior Olympics athletic competitions that pro mote good health among older seniors, and variety of fun walk/ runs and health fairs that feature healthy lifestyles. Whether its help in promoting, coordinating or sponsoring, hospice providers step up to the plate to support community wellness activities. Yes its true, hospice providers are focused on delivering high quality care to patients and pro viding comfort to loved ones. But they also are becoming more and more engaged in the community to help promote and ensure its overall health and well-being. Hospice isnt just about end-of-life care EVA SYLVESTER Guest columnist

So it should be no surprise that the number one reason people state they dont work out is because they dont have time. So how can you incorporate movement into your workplace so you can feel healthy and revitalized? On Wednesday, September 11, Winter Park Memorial Hospital and Work Well Winter Park hosted Holly Bruinsma, Exercise Physiologist with Florida Hospitals Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, to participate in the monthly Work Well Lunch. During the lunch and learn, Holly shared the importance of workplace wellbeing. Here are a few ways to lead a healthier life style in your workplace: Take Ergo BreaksIt is important to give your body a break every hour. One of Work Well Winter Parks policies is to Sit for 60, move for 3. How can you incorporate this? On your break try taking walks, stretch or climb the stairs. Physically, these breaks can help to avoid static postures, prevent back pain, stiff muscles and tight joints. Mentally, these breaks can assist in reducing anxiety, stress and fatigue while also improving mental alertness. Make sure your workstation is set up for youHow you sit at your desk can play a huge role in the health of your body. Make sure to do regular posture checks. Remember to ask yourself questions such by my chair? Are my wrists at or below elbow level? Are my knees and hips at 90 degrees or more? Are my wrists straight, not bent to one side or down while using the mouse or keyboard? stretches and exercises that strengthen your back, legs abs and hip. Even try yoga poses that strengthen Dont forgetAll of these helpful tips can be easily looked over, so to help you stay on track, try putting a reminder on your calendar, cell phone or computer. You can even post pictures of your stretches at or around your desk. Get your coworkers involved! Take breaks with them and ask them to hold you accountable.

Holly Bruinsma demonstrates desk-friendly stretches for attendees at Septembers Work Well Lunch. WORK WELL Wednesday, Sept. 11, marked the 12th an niversary of the 9/11 attacks on America. That day was a day of particu lar horror, claiming lives and 6,000 inju ries as well as the twin towers of the World Trade Center and a large portion of the Pentagon. I remember I was sitting in the chapel of my former church preparing for a staff meet ing when someone burst in with the news of the attacks. Some one had a portable TV and we watched in stunned disbelief as people threw themselves out of windows and buildings collapsed all around them. Nearly everyone has seen pic in lower Manhattan, the smoking ville, the gaping hole in the Pen are images that are not easily erased even with the passage of time. They are scenes of hor ror that are only partial ly mediated by the love ly 9/11 Memorial on the sight of the World Trade Center. What really takes some of the sting out of the horror are other images of the heroes of the day people like Todd Beamer away from its target, losing his life in the process, and Welles Crowther, the man in the red ban dana who led dozens to safety from the South Tower, also losing his life in the process, and Mychal Judge, the chaplain who died try ing to bring comfort to the dying. These men were representative of hundreds of lesser-known heroes of that day. Many of them sacri their safety. rors and heroes of 9/11, I realized the two often go together. In the living of everyday life we might do good things. It is in the crucible of human suffering that true heroes are born. In the chaos of disaster, there is superhu man force that rises up in the lives of some people, causing them to risk ev erything for the sake of their fellow human be ings. Fear and hesitation get cast aside in favor of action. And when that happens it is a beautiful thing to behold, even when everything else is ugly. True heroes, like the ones of 9/11, hopefully inspire us to be ourselves standing in the midst of human suffering of the magni tude of 9/11. However, there are smaller tragedies faced by people Remembering horrors and heroes Jim Govatos Reality Lines Please see REMEMBERING on next page These men were representative of hundreds of lesser-known heroes of that day.

But I do think they would cel ebrate every time their courage inspired us to live a bit more courageously right where we are. Thank God not every day is a 9/11.

When it gets infected and plications come in a rainbow of colors and can be deadly. You have only one liver and you cant live without it. The most com mon types of hepa titis are A, B, and C. Each of these affects the liver, but they are separate viruses. Each has its unique characteristics. Hepatitis A typically lasts a few weeks and comes from ingesting the hepatitis A virus. Have you noticed signs in restau rant bathrooms Employee Must Wash Hands? That is because the virus comes from stool, so an unwashed hand can carry the germ right to the food and into your body. It can make you mighty sick, but healthy people usually recover within a month. Hepatitis A symptoms are colorful because the infected liver cannot process hemoglobin and bilirubin well. Your skin and eyes turn yellow, urine gets dark, stools come out white, and the nausea makes you feel green. Other symptoms are fever, fatigue and no appe tite. Symptoms occur two to six weeks after exposure. Hepatitis B comes through blood and body secretions. In timacy, dirty injections, and in juries lead the list of pathways. Hepatitis B can also be transmit ted from mother to baby during birth, which is why babies are given the hepatitis B vaccine in Half of infected adults have no hepatitis B symptoms. Some have symptoms similar to the hepatitis A symptoms, six weeks or six months after exposure. Unlike hepatitis A, hepatitis B infection can become mation of the liver, cirrhosis, end-stage liver disease, liver cancer and death. You can be vaccinated for both hepatitis A and B, with separate or combined immu nizations. We still do not have a vaccine for hepatitis C. The good news is that hepatitis B vaccinations have become routine for children since 1991, so young adults and children are likely to be protected. Health workers who are frequently exposed to blood are routinely offered the hepatitis B vaccine. With the broad use of the vaccine, hepatitis B infections have declined more than 80 percent. But many adults remain unimmu nized and at risk. Hepatitis C is also spread by blood. It is the most common chronic infection spread by blood in the United States. Hepatitis C can cause a mild infection that lasts only a few weeks, but more commonly, it dam ages the liver and causes lifelong illness. Hepatitis C can go undetected for years. Sixty to 70 percent of persons with new hepatitis C infections have no symptoms or have mild symptoms. As many as 85 percent of those infected with hepatitis C can develop chronic liver disease. Hepati tis C can be detected by a blood test. Treat ment with interferon and ribavirin, with ongoing monitoring, can help. So how do you protect yourself?

Men with lower testos terone levels were also more likely to be more involved fathers. lower levels of testosterone born that way (smaller jewels) or channeled that way (by embracing fatherhood)? Is there a correlation between your marble size and what kind of father youll become? If your Giggle Berries are just short of exactly that perhaps you are more inclined to be a caring, stick-around father. Embrace your fate, Sir. Be a man. Many do. So ladies, never wonder again what happened to that man who once so ardently courted. Perhaps, hes the same boy just changing diapers and walking the pram. Perhaps not. Perhaps men should wear a number on their chest. It could be nicely tailored, tastefully done. Bejeweled, perhaps. Im just thinking out loud here. Say, from one to a hundred. Fifty would be the baseline. Earn (wear) a 50 and every woman would immediately know that such a man was Lifemate Committed to Having Children (the peerless PLCHC Index). Wouldnt that greatly simplify dating? What you will settle for would no longer be a question among your girlfriends. Have you heard, Molly sleeps with 60s. Ooooooh! Youve always got Mr. Rights number. However, Mr. Right Now might be this moments memorable weekend strategy. Think Annie Lenox singing, I Want A Man. What you are looking for, conve niently displayed. Sadly reduced to the size of their Love How much testosterone is enough? Of course, you need enough to move the rear end of 1965 Volkswagen Beetle in a pinch. But as a casual observer of the world, is too much testosterone. Kick it back a bit, boys. If male-kind could only dial it back. Maybe that is fatherhoods intent. So if evolution plays tricks (shall we say) with a mans acorns perhaps it is to ing chance. All men can be better fathers. Alright, nearly all. And if kinder and gentler men make better fathers, would it not behoove society to foster that value? Better fathers better world. Better fathers, better world Louis Roney Play On! many years since we met in New York where he married someone I knew, now lives in a Western wateringhole where land that used to cost a few bucks an acre now probably fetches a mil lion or more. In dusty baronial splendor he manages to preserve a cherished air of arrogance. He is one of those, to me, inexplicable animal. He went to a great university and being an only child has probably never had to worry about a penny in his life. He topped off his credentials with a fancy educational persona is complete. His wife is a product of the Midwest, worked as an artist in New York, and now is transplanted as a member of the artsy not-so-wild West. This couple and I have, along the way, run into each other in New York, Winter Park, Paris, London, Austria, Holland, New Mexico and Massachusetts. They are dear and worthy people, despite their unfortunate differences from me, and may take it as a personal insult that I dont think politically as they do. Frankly, I have never given a damn about any of my friends politics, and cant tell you what most of them espouse. There fore, I cannot understand how my friend a conservative, while he is a liberal and which that breed frequently engenders. I knew some guys of his background while at Harvard, and they were all as leftwing as they were rich. Churchill was always an exceptional hero of mine because he was born in a cas tle, and yet maintained the common touch while he was saving conservatism and the Western world. Perhaps his American mother, Jenny Jerome, from New York and Jerome, Arizona, never let Winston forget he was half American. My friends and I, who knew each other well in New York, ended up, after multitu dinous travels, with their southwest poshspot and I, with my Winter Park digs. It occurs to me that a busy life includes much moving about and usually many occasional meetings, either planned or coincidental. Anyway, at the end of the line is the last trip, where we do not know when we shall meet again, or how was a perky little guy when I chatted with him, and I noticed right off that he was polite, a bit high-handed, and quite pushy. Mickey told me backstage at Orlandos Bob Carr Auditorium that he was four months older than I am. He sat down at a grand piano at the edge of the stage and said, So youre a singer so sing. He was very much at home with his hands on the keyboard, and played a bit of a popular song from the s. I sang along all right, he said. A cameraman clicked Mickey and me at the piano and I have Mickey said that Elizabeth Taylor even as a small child was as beautiful as they come. If Elizabeth was 79 as her death notices proclaimed, she was 11 younger than I, and I remember her in the movies as being older than that. Well, no matter movie stars are make-believe people, even in death. Mickey also recounted his long friend ship with Judy Garland, a highly talented young girl whose mature years brought her much unhappiness. In 1942, at 22, Mickey married Ava Gardner in a mar riage that fell apart in a few months. He married seven more times, and the last one marry, marry, marry again!

Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013 Serving Winter Park, Maitland, Baldwin Park, College Park and Goldenrod50+ tax WPMOBSERVER.COM Dogs owned by Winter Park residents may be allowed to roam the grounds of Central Park twice a year as a result of a new city ordinance adding to the citys history of dog contro versy spanning several years. Winter Park City Commis sioners voted unanimously dur ing last Mondays City Commis reading of the ordinance that allows dogs in Central Park for special events, also voting by a count of 4-1 to limit the park to only two dog events each year. The new ordinance would tweak the current law that pro hibits dogs in the 7-acre park, an ordinance set in place back in 2006 under former Mayor Ken Marchman. But some Commissioners dis agreed with the change, reason ing that the park should be left as a place for just residents to enjoy. We have 298 acres of parks, we have 17 acres of off-leash parks, and I believe dogs are al lowed in all of our parks, Com missioner Carolyn Cooper said. I just think its OK to say that Central Park is different. The new ordinance would give City Manager Randy Knight the task of approving the two events that allow dogs each year. Applicants wishing to host an event would have to submit reasons why the dogs will be there, as well as a detailed description of how the dogs will be contained within the park. This troubled Commissioner Sarah Sprinkel, who thought the ordinance gave the city manager too much discretion. Who knows whos always going to be our city manager, Sprinkel said. Im glad its Ran dy, but what if we get somebody in there with 500 dogs, so you have to be really careful about who you give that decision to. Commissioner Steven Leary said that he supported the ordi nance as long as event staff kept the park clean. I dont have a problem with this, Leary said. My only con cern is follow up; I want to make sure that the park is pristine after the event is over. Issues regarding dogs along the Park Avenue corridor have sprung up several times in recent years. In 2010, the Parks and Recre ation Advisory Board sought to ban permits that allowed dogcentered events along the Avenue, including the Pet Costume Contest put on by local company The Doggie Door. Members of the board explained that par ticipants continued to bring their dogs in Central Park, despite the active ordinance banning pets. The Board sent a letter to the City Commission later that year PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE OBSERVERDogs have come close to Winter Parks Central Park, but hadnt been allowed to touch the grass.

The Maitland Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing to discuss a draft of the chicken ordinance at its Sept. 19 meeting. The ordinance as-is would establish a two-year pilot program to allow 15 house holds to roost a maximum of three hens in a coop no larger than 100 square feet. Planning and Zoning Com missioner Dale McDonald said the Commission members will likely hold one more public hear ing in October before they make a recommendation to the City Council. He said P&Z has received ongoing feedback over the or dinance from both chicken ad vocates and chicken opposition. of allowing the egg-laying fowl in Maitland backyards in March, and the Planning and Zoning Commission got the go-ahead from City Council to draft the or dinance in June.

The Knights would gain 507 yards in the game one of the best offensive performances ever for the Knights. Knights quarterback Blake Bortles dominated, with a strong 288-yard passing game including three touchdowns. J.J. Worton was his favorite target, with seven grabs for 101 yards. The Nittany Lions would score quarter and a half of the game, putting pressure on the Knights defense. But the Knights held the Lions, thanks to a crucial fumble forced by Terrance Plummer and recovery by Sean Maag as Penn State was nearing the UCF red zone late in the fourth quarter. That moment was the differ ence-maker, OLeary said. Running Back Storm Johnson led the team in rushing for the second time in three games, gaining 117 net yards on 17 carries, including the Knights second touchdown of the game. The win was a historic mo ment for the Knights, who had never beaten a Big Ten Confer ence football team in seven prior Knights had defeated the Lions in three meetings.

But emotions ran high once again on Monday as several resi dents spoke against the new ordi nance, fearing for the integrity of Central Park. The mayor frequently refers to Central Park as The Jewel, as do many other residents, Bon nie Jackson said. People deserve one space that is just for them, a green space where people can pic nic, read a book, throw a Frisbee, or watch a movie or a jazz concert without worrying about sitting in or stepping in waste left by a dog. Please dont turn our crown jewel into a porta-potty. Other residents raised con cerns of health hazards from dogs defecating in the park a bad combination with the numerous events where residents lay in the grass, Mary Randall said. I dont like the thought of hav ing to put a blanket down to go to an event on top of some place where people may have picked up after a dog, Randall said. That doesnt mean its clean and sanitary. Commissioners decided that the twice-a-year limit on dog events made sense, but how the city plans to restrict dogs while theyre in the park remains to be seen. approval before the City CommisCONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE INTEGRITY LOYALTY UNWAVERING ENTHUSIASM Kelly L.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013 | Page 5Lifestyles For the Porter family, a truly good summer means a trip to the beach. Their favorite part is taking a stroll along the boardwalk, peeking into the perfect little pastel whitewashed shops and stopping for an ice cream treat. behind the glass counter, metal scoops ready to plop a mound of moments they dream of all year. At home, they always missed the feeling, the nostalgic atmosphere of a mom and pop ice cream shop serving the real deal, creamy ice cream. It had been Melanie Porters dream for years to recreate that family experience, so she did it herself. I always thought, gosh, what a happy industry to be in, Melanie said. Its just pure joy. So now, amongst the strip plazas and the buzz of cars zipping along Orlando Avenue, things slow down just a bit where, out of an ordinary parking lot, pops up a charming little cottage called Lu Lus Ice Cream Shop. Its almost something out of a fairy tale, with its wavy yellow siding and multi-colored pastel birds decorate the walls, putting Lu Lus in its own garden, and intricate shutters frame the spot where a Porter family member greets customers. Customers tell them a trip there is something they havent experienced since they were children. People stop to take photos in front of the shop, and cant help but get some ice cream too. thing that nobody else had, said Mark Porter, Melanies husband. Nothing is quite like this.

All the ingredients are local and organic when possible. The dairy products all come from a Florida farm in Myakka City just a couple of hours away. We actually went to the farm and met the cow that made our ice cream, said Brandon Moss, Muses vice president. theres cake and frosting made in house by Muse. The bananas foster has homemade sauce and the fruits and fruit juices used are often from Florida farms. The ice creams are all made in small batches and pasteurized from scratch, which gives Moss and his wife control over the intensity of cream delivered weekly. We assure youre getting something thats fresh, Mark said. Ava loves that in their ice cream, you can see the chunks of fruit, and that the colors customers see are from the ingredients; At many ice cream places said. You can tell that its freshly made. Because the family runs the business themselves, and it doesnt cost much to power their little cottage, its possible for them to serve the premium ice cream that they do. Not only that, they serve it at an affordable price for families. A single scoop of ice cream costs just $1.75, and the most expensive item they have a banana split is $5. Melanies goal was to make a fun family for a family of four, and bring it down to $10. So those nights where a whole family takes a bike ride down to Lu Lus for a treat can happen a lot more often.

Page 8 | Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer The costume goes from their feathers in their hair. The tribal belly dancers wear a prairie-like skirt with layers upon layers of dozens of tassels tied around their waists. A quick twist of their hips sends each layer twirling. Up from there is the signature bare midriff with a coin decorated top. The tops and bottoms of their bodies are in total control, perfectly level and still, while the middle of their bodies coil and twist in almost impossible ways. The music goes from a jazzy bass line groove to a Middle-Eastern sounding drum beat, as the dancers create atmosphere with little yips. Lacey Sanchez, owner of Florida Tribal Dance (FTD) in Orlando, teaches and performs two genres of tribal belly danc ing. The dance was created about 20 years ago, combining the music and moves from cultures all over the world, including Afri can, Middle Eastern and Spanish, with a folkloric feel. When youre watching the dancers, its easy to imagine it comes from an ancient culture, but the dancing and combination of moves, while referen tial, are something relatively new. The choreography can mix ballet, jazz, hip hop and club dancing. The options and inspirations are limitless. Because its American-made we get a lot of license to do that, its never a completely traditional dance, Lacey said. This dance is so far reaching, so global; this is something that really spans genres. Heavy costuming is an important element to the dance, especially for performances, and adds to the old-world feel. Lacey likes to pile on the accessories, and decorates herself with heavy, ethnic jewelry. Its theatrical. I dont feel complete unless Im 20 pounds heavier, she said with a laugh. Her studio offers improvisational tribal dance, which doesnt have a set choreography and instead has a lead dancer decid ing the dance on the spot and the group follows their cued moves. She also does tribal fusion belly dance, which combines tribal moves with any other style of dance the choreographer chooses. mostly women, and many of the dancers have tattoos and piercings. Lacey herself has tattoos, and thick swirl plugs dangling from her ears. The tribal dance culture has drawn an alternative crowd for many years. It was kind of accepted for you to be different, said Alex Sanchez, Laceys husband, who also owns the tattoo studio Inner Image Ink, which shares a space with the FTD studio. But the types of people attend ing classes have expanded since 2006 when FTD started. Among the tattooed, stay-at-home moms are looking for a way to treat themselves, like Aivin Diaz, whose Latin dance background didnt prepare her for the chal lenges of learning tribal dance. Some dancers are lawyers outlet. Orlando resident Matt Drury spends a lot of his time dance studio in the area hes visiting. Dancers and instructors run the gamut of sizes and backgrounds, and while Drury is really the one male dancer that consistently shows, he always feels at home. At FTD, Lacey wants people to feel welcomed with open arms, even if they wouldnt imagine theyd type of person she teaches. Dance doesnt belong in one body, she said.

One reason her students say they feel comfortable is their teacher. Lacey is effusive in her dance talk its a mile a minute, the passion is nearly tangible, and her husband Alex says shes almost obsessed. She gallops across the room to change the music between dance numbers, a smile never leaves her face and she says she bonds immediately with anyone who dances but it might be her incredibly warm personality, not just the dancing, that creates the bond. Here when Im dancing, I feel loved, said January Parker. Thats what Lacey is after home, and a new piece of them selves at FTD, just like she did with dance. This is where I belong, Lacey said.

Thanks to education and outreach efforts by hospice organiza tions throughout the country dur ing the past decade, awareness in and access to hospice care is on the rise. Many people now have a good understanding that the term hospice refers to end-of-life care the comfort-focused care provided to a patient who has a life expectancy prognosis of six months or less. On the other hand, most people might be surprised to see how dynamic hospice providers have become in their efforts to engage with their communities to promote overall health and well-being. For some time now, hospice providers have been expanding their efforts to help make every moment count for patients and their loved ones. Expert medical personnel and compassionate direct-care team members are still at the heart of hospice care and continue to meet the needs of patients by delivering the latest advancements in hospice and palliative care. But its truly a team approach. From volunteers who are ready and willing to run small errands for patients or just sit nearby to keep them company, to social workers and other care team members who help bring music and pet companionship to patients and respite care to families, to spiritual directors who can be engaged as needed, hospice providers are proactive in responding to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and families. Look out into the community today, however, and youll also see hospice providers offering memorial services, providing the latest information on grief recovery and advanced care directives, and working together with other community organiza tions on health-focused programs and events. Hospice providers are active beyond providing high quality direct patient care. For example, in any given viders offering support groups in various locations throughout the community on topics ranging to the importance of nutrition and exercise in the grief recov ery process. With these support an emphasis on addressing the latest research and providing information and education that can help the individual and the community. You can also see hospice providers active throughout the community providing memorial services for families and loved ones, coordinating special recognitions for veterans throughout the year and on Veterans Day, and serving as points of contact on advance care planning on National Healthcare Decisions Day all in an effort to be there for the community. And its not just their own events, hospice providers are quick to step up and support the efforts of other care organiza tions, such as Sweet Wars des sert contests that raise funds for good causes, Senior Olympics athletic competitions that pro mote good health among older seniors, and variety of fun walk/ runs and health fairs that feature healthy lifestyles. Whether its help in promoting, coordinating or sponsoring, hospice providers step up to the plate to support community wellness activities. Yes its true, hospice providers are focused on delivering high quality care to patients and pro viding comfort to loved ones. But they also are becoming more and more engaged in the community to help promote and ensure its overall health and well-being.Hospice isnt just about end-of-life careEVA SYLVESTER Guest columnist

Physically, these breaks can help to avoid static postures, prevent back pain, stiff muscles and tight joints. Mentally, these breaks can assist in reducing anxiety, stress and fatigue while also improving mental alertness. Make sure your workstation is set up for youHow you sit at your desk can play a huge role in the health of your body. Make sure to do regular posture checks. Remember to ask yourself questions such by my chair? Are my wrists at or below elbow level? Are my knees and hips at 90 degrees or more? Are my wrists straight, not bent to one side or down while using the mouse or keyboard? stretches and exercises that strengthen your back, legs abs and hip.

That day was a day of particular horror, claiming lives and 6,000 injuries as well as the twin towers of the World Trade Center and a large portion of the Pentagon. I remember I was sitting in the chapel of my former church preparing for a staff meet ing when someone burst in with the news of the attacks. Some one had a portable TV and we watched in stunned disbelief as people threw themselves out of windows and buildings collapsed all around them. Nearly everyone has seen pic in lower Manhattan, the smoking ville, the gaping hole in the Pen are images that are not easily erased even with the passage of time. They are scenes of hor ror that are only partial ly mediated by the love ly 9/11 Memorial on the sight of the World Trade Center. What really takes some of the sting out of the horror are other images of the heroes of the day people like Todd Beamer away from its target, losing his life in the process, and Welles Crowther, the man in the red bandana who led dozens to safety from the South Tower, also losing his life in the process, and Mychal Judge, the chaplain who died try ing to bring comfort to the dying. These men were representative of hundreds of lesser-known heroes of that day. Many of them sacri their safety. rors and heroes of 9/11, I realized the two often go together. In the living of everyday life we might do good things. It is in the crucible of human suffering that true heroes are born. In the chaos of disaster, there is superhuman force that rises up in the lives of some people, causing them to risk ev erything for the sake of their fellow human beings. Fear and hesitation get cast aside in favor of action. And when that happens it is a beautiful thing to behold, even when everything else is ugly. True heroes, like the ones of 9/11, hopefully inspire us to be ourselves standing in the midst of human suffering of the magnitude of 9/11. However, there are smaller tragedies faced by people Remembering horrors and heroes Jim Govatos Reality Lines Please see REMEMBERING on next pageThese men were representative of hundreds of lesser-known heroes of that day.

These situations are not as stark or ur gent as 9/11 and whatever we might do cannot be compared with the heroic actions of 9/11, but they do make a difference in the lives of people we can touch. I dont think any of the heroes of 9/11 would want to be idolized; true heroes are far too hum ble for that. But I do think they would cel ebrate every time their courage inspired us to live a bit more courageously right where we are. Thank God not every day is a 9/11. Not every day created the horrors in which true heroes are formed. But every day does pro vide the challenges in which courage and of others. Will we rise to the occasion?

When it gets infected and plications come in a rainbow of colors and can be deadly. You have only one liver and you cant live without it. The most com mon types of hepatitis are A, B, and C. Each of these affects the liver, but they are separate viruses. Each has its unique characteristics. Hepatitis A typically lasts a few weeks and comes from ingesting the hepatitis A virus. Have you noticed signs in restaurant bathrooms Employee Must Wash Hands? That is because the virus comes from stool, so an unwashed hand can carry the germ right to the food and into your body. It can make you mighty sick, but healthy people usually recover within a month. Hepatitis A symptoms are colorful because the infected liver cannot process hemoglobin and bilirubin well. Your skin and eyes turn yellow, urine gets dark, stools come out white, and the nausea makes you feel green. Other symptoms are fever, fatigue and no appe tite. Symptoms occur two to six weeks after exposure. Hepatitis B comes through blood and body secretions. Intimacy, dirty injections, and injuries lead the list of pathways. Hepatitis B can also be transmitted from mother to baby during birth, which is why babies are given the hepatitis B vaccine in Half of infected adults have no hepatitis B symptoms. Some have symptoms similar to the hepatitis A symptoms, six weeks or six months after exposure. Unlike hepatitis A, hepatitis B infection can become mation of the liver, cirrhosis, end-stage liver disease, liver cancer and death. You can be vaccinated for both hepatitis A and B, with separate or combined immu nizations. We still do not have a vaccine for hepatitis C. The good news is that hepatitis B vaccinations have become routine for children since 1991, so young adults and children are likely to be protected. Health workers who are frequently exposed to blood are routinely offered the hepatitis B vaccine. With the broad use of the vaccine, hepatitis B infections have declined more than 80 percent. But many adults remain unimmunized and at risk. Hepatitis C is also spread by blood. It is the most common chronic infection spread by blood in the United States. Hepatitis C can cause a mild infection that lasts only a few weeks, but more commonly, it damages the liver and causes lifelong illness. Hepatitis C can go undetected for years. Sixty to 70 percent of persons with new hepatitis C infections have no symptoms or have mild symptoms. As many as 85 percent of those infected with hepatitis C can develop chronic liver disease. Hepati tis C can be detected by a blood test. Treat ment with interferon and ribavirin, with ongoing monitoring, can help. So how do you protect yourself? Being as healthy as possible gives you the best tine checkups and blood tests can detect an infection you dont know you have.

Career opportunities. Skill development. Professional relationships. Income. Eco nomic security. OK. Well, Ill raise you one here, ladies. Men give up their manhood. Associate professor of anthropology James Rilling of Emory University an nounced recent research results that, when men become more involved as caregivers, their testes shrink, environmental Marriage shrinks your junk. Environriage and involved fatherhood. They liter ally cause the Boys to Gasp! collapse in on themselves. So, with all due respect to what women surrender, is not what men give-up of The Twins just naturally shrink once you become an involved father The Boys in the Basement, sadly, just dont seem to be quite the same ol handful. It gets complex, lads. The Emory study asserts that, anthropologists found the smaller the size of the dads testicles, or testes, the more caregiving was reported by both parents. Men with lower testos terone levels were also more likely to be more involved fathers. lower levels of testosterone born that way (smaller jewels) or channeled that way (by embracing fatherhood)? Is there a correlation between your marble size and what kind of father youll become? If your Giggle Berries are just short of exactly that perhaps you are more inclined to be a caring, stick-around father. Embrace your fate, Sir. Be a man. Many do. So ladies, never wonder again what happened to that man who once so ardently courted. Perhaps, hes the same boy just changing diapers and walking the pram. Perhaps not. Perhaps men should wear a number on their chest. It could be nicely tailored, tastefully done. Bejeweled, perhaps. Im just thinking out loud here. Say, from one to a hundred. Fifty would be the baseline. Earn (wear) a 50 and every woman would immediately know that such a man was Lifemate Committed to Having Children (the peerless PLCHC Index). Wouldnt that greatly simplify dating? What you will settle for would no longer be a question among your girlfriends. Have you heard, Molly sleeps with 60s. Ooooooh! Youve always got Mr. Rights number. However, Mr. Right Now might be this moments memorable weekend strategy. Think Annie Lenox singing, I Want A Man. What you are looking for, conve niently displayed. Sadly reduced to the size of their Love How much testosterone is enough? Of course, you need enough to move the rear end of 1965 Volkswagen Beetle in a pinch. But as a casual observer of the world, is too much testosterone. Kick it back a bit, boys. If male-kind could only dial it back. Maybe that is fatherhoods intent. So if evolution plays tricks (shall we say) with a mans acorns perhaps it is to ing chance. All men can be better fathers. Alright, nearly all. And if kinder and gentler men make better fathers, would it not behoove society to foster that value? Better fathers better world.Better fathers, better worldLouis Roney Play On! many years since we met in New York where he married someone I knew, now lives in a Western wateringhole where land that used to cost a few bucks an acre now probably fetches a mil lion or more. In dusty baronial splendor he manages to preserve a cherished air of arrogance. He is one of those, to me, inexplicable animal. He went to a great university and being an only child has probably never had to worry about a penny in his life. He topped off his credentials with a fancy educational persona is complete. His wife is a product of the Midwest, worked as an artist in New York, and now is transplanted as a member of the artsy not-so-wild West. This couple and I have, along the way, run into each other in New York, Winter Park, Paris, London, Austria, Holland, New Mexico and Massachusetts. They are dear and worthy people, despite their unfortunate differences from me, and may take it as a personal insult that I dont think politically as they do. Frankly, I have never given a damn about any of my friends politics, and cant tell you what most of them espouse. There fore, I cannot understand how my friend a conservative, while he is a liberal and which that breed frequently engenders. I knew some guys of his background while at Harvard, and they were all as leftwing as they were rich. Churchill was always an exceptional hero of mine because he was born in a castle, and yet maintained the common touch while he was saving conservatism and the Western world. Perhaps his American mother, Jenny Jerome, from New York and Jerome, Arizona, never let Winston forget he was half American. My friends and I, who knew each other well in New York, ended up, after multitu dinous travels, with their southwest poshspot and I, with my Winter Park digs. It occurs to me that a busy life includes much moving about and usually many occasional meetings, either planned or coincidental. Anyway, at the end of the line is the last trip, where we do not know when we shall meet again, or how was a perky little guy when I chatted with him, and I noticed right off that he was polite, a bit high-handed, and quite pushy. Mickey told me backstage at Orlandos Bob Carr Auditorium that he was four months older than I am. He sat down at a grand piano at the edge of the stage and said, So youre a singer so sing. He was very much at home with his hands on the keyboard, and played a bit of a popular song from the s. I sang along all right, he said. A cameraman clicked Mickey and me at the piano and I have Mickey said that Elizabeth Taylor even as a small child was as beautiful as they come. If Elizabeth was 79 as her death notices proclaimed, she was 11 younger than I, and I remember her in the movies as being older than that. Well, no matter movie stars are make-believe people, even in death. Mickey also recounted his long friendship with Judy Garland, a highly talented young girl whose mature years brought her much unhappiness. In 1942, at 22, Mickey married Ava Gardner in a mar riage that fell apart in a few months. He married seven more times, and the last one marry, marry, marry again!Friends & Acquaintances Jepson is a 27-year resident of Central Florida.
