Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013Serving Winter Park, Maitland, Baldwin Park, College Park and Goldenrod50+ tax WPMOBSERVER.COM Please see PERLMAN on page 2 Itzhak Perlman never felt the crushing oppression of Nazi occupation or suffered the horrors of concentration camps, but his world was nonetheless shaped by the events that took place mere years before his birth. His parents were fortunate to leave Poland in the 1930s for what would become Israel, his grandparents and other family members stayed behind hoping like so many others that the trouble would pass and they would be able to stay at home. History tells the ugly truth though, from the night of terror, destruction and persecution in 1938 known as Kristallnacht or the Night of Broken Glass, to the tion camp, precious little would remain for Jews to rebuild their lives. For Perlman it would mean growing up without any relatives older than his parents. No grandparents to tell him stories, teach him songs or the words of ancient prayers. He would grow up in a world scarred by events of the past, bearing his own burdens from a bout with polio suffered at the age of four. a beginning an excuse for bitter ness and anger, instead Perlman picked up a violin and showed the world, through music, all the anguish, heartache, beauty and joy the human soul can possess. Music is a part of societys soul, that emotional experience when you hear music is something society needs, Perlman said. From performances on Sesame Street to the inauguration of President Obama, Perlman has shared his talent and his sense of humor, delighting audiences of all ages. It makes me feel old to talk about it now, but playing on Sesame Street was really a lot of fun, meeting all the characters, like Big Bird and that guy in the trash can Oscar, was really cool, Perlman said. Not the same kind of excitement as playing the White House though, that was exciting because of what it stands for, the history you know, I was always excited to go there. Perlman, known as much for his humor and humility as for his music, will visit Rollins College on Nov. 7 as part of the A Winter Park landmark came another step closer to a brighter from the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Garden celebrated the groundbreaking for the relocation of the historic Capen House to the museums grounds. The groundbreaking marked a turning point in a community effort to save the home, which began in June when property owners nearly had it destroyed to make way for a new house after the City Commission voted to remove its historic designation. The museum guaranteed the $650,000-relocation in late September when they announced that they would tap into their reserves to make up the differ ence of the $400,000 left over after donations from Winter Park residents. Its kind of emotional to be honest; so much has been done by so many people to get to this point, said Debbie Komanski, executive director of the museum. Across Lake Osceola at the Capen House site, workers are currently clearing the area around the house and its crawlspace underneath so that movers can begin the process of cutting the house into two pieces. Movers should begin the process of building the ramp and the lake at the end of this week. Its very, very exciting because so much has transpired to get us to this point, said Frank Roark, the general contractor for the relocation. We started off early on where it seemed like there was such a steep hill to climb in terms of just the provisupport to make this happen in such a short period of time. But the most recent twist in the museums effort to save the house came when a Winter Park organization called Concerned Citizens for Historic Preservation Inc. sued the city of Winter Park for removing the historic tentially hindering the relocation Capen breaks groundPolasek Museum celebrates houses groundbreakingTIM FREED Observer staff Please see HOUSE on page 2A chicken-keeping pilot proin Maitland following the City Council unanimously approving ban chickens in June, causing other neighbors to cry foul over the idea of feathered friends roosting in bordering backyards. After months of research, city staff drafted the ordinance allowing participating residents to house four hens each for a trail period to monitor coop compliance. On Monday the Council rewrote program would be limited to 50 homes and last 18 months. Orlando launched a similar two-year trial program in 2012, and agriculturist Dennis Mudge with the Orange County Extension Services said the city has since received no complaints about the coops or their egg-laying occupants. Ive worked closely with the 75 people in Orlando, and honestly the other neighbors dont even know where the chickens are, Mudge said.

P age 2 | Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013 | Winter P ark / Maitland ObserverWinter Park Institutes speaker series. The event, held in conjunction with others throughout Central Florida, commemorates the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht, which occurred the night Nov. 9, 1938 in towns and cities across Germany and Austria. Throughout that night and into the next morning, Jewish homes, businesses and synagogues were looted, destroyed, burned or otherwise desecrated. As many as 100 people were killed in the Night of Broken Glass, so named for the shattered windows that lined the streets when the sun came up the next morning. Up to 30,000 men were round up and sent to concentration camps, marking the beginning of large-scale Jewish incarcerations based only on their religion. Perlman returned to a subject very close to his heart when he agreed to play on the soundtrack for the 1993 best picture Oscarwinner Schindlers List. His haunting violin solos pay tribute HOUSE | Move across lake still plannedPERLMAN | Will revisit Kristallnachtproject. Frank assured that recent events wouldnt stop the house from moving. It doesnt change our plans in any way for moving the house, Roark said. Komanski said the move itself will be completed by mid-December, meeting the deadline of Dec. 31 set by the Capen House property owners. The museum still needs $150,000 for the second phase, which includes setting the houses foundation and putting the pieces of the home together. Komanski remained hopeful that the project would succeed despite the lawsuit against the city. Were acting in good faith, she said. Were pressing forward. We have a deadline to meet and were going to meet it, and hope that this will all be resolved soon. A third phase is also planned, which will also take care of lightning, furnishing and creating walkways to the house. Its going to bring joy forevermore, for mer Board of Trustees member Ann Polasek said.

It is a common theme throughout his work, that determination of spirit and unquenchable zest for life. Recently he has brought his considerable talent to another project close to home in the form of Klezmer music. to return to the music I was born with, Perlman said. Until recently, I had never played it, but once I began, I realized it came naturally, the sound was something I was used to as a child growing up in Israel. Klezmer music is the traditional Jewish folk music of Eastern Europe, brought over by immigrants and Holocaust survivors to the United States. It is often heard at Jewish weddings and celebrations. Reviving this traditional music has been the project of many Jewish musicians, such as Perlman, since its near loss following the Holocaust. In addition to a busy schedule of performances and appearances the world over, the 68-year-old musician dedicates much of his time to teaching the next generation of musicians through the Perlman Music Program founded by his wife, Toby. Besides a good meal, some of my greatest joys come from playing, conducting and teaching, he said, each one supports the other. One of the great challenges when you grow up with music and you are getting a little older, is to make sure that you dont get bored by what you are doing, especially when you have done it so many years. And I am happy to report that I am far from being exciting.

Winter P ark / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013 | P age 3 Maitland City TalkBY HOWARD SCHIEFERDECKER MAYOR Maitland Fire/Rescue Holds Free CPR Class On Oct. 15, more than 75 people learned to perform CPR (car diopulmonary resuscitation) and brillator) in Maitland. Hands-on training for CPR and AED provide students with the tools necessary to respond to heart-related medical emergencies. The Maitland Fire/Rescue Department conducted a free class as part of a new initiative to train as many people in the community in CPR and AED use as possible assembled in the City Council Chambers to learn and practice CPR and Choking Rescue for adults, infants and children. Unparamedics, the students pressed on the plastic chests of mannequins to the rhythm of the disco music Staying Alive. For many it was a new experience, for others it was a refresher. Training enough people in CPR to ensure that the lifesaving procedure will be provided for witnessed out-of-hospital cardiac arrest cases in a community reportion of the population. The Maitland Fire Department will be offering the classes at least twice per year in the hopes of reaching as many Maitland residents and visitors as possible. brillator, or AED, is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses potentially lifethreatening cardiac arrhythmias in a patient and is able to treat plication of electrical therapy that stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm. With simple audio and visual commands, AEDs are designed to be used by anyone. While training is not required, familiarity with an AED can prorespond accordingly in a medical emergency. The Maitland Fire Rescue Department considers the trained community to be a piece of the puzzle in our life saving efforts and welcomes the newest members to our team!

P age 6 | Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013 | Winter P ark / Maitland ObserverThe UCF Knights are the highest theyve ever been ranked in national polling after destroying UConn in a 62-17 rout Oct. 26 at home. The Knights hadnt been home for a month while they rocketed into the top 25 standings of four NCAA FBS polls in the wake of a 38-35 shocker over Louisville on Oct. 18. After annihilating UConn, it only got better. The Knights are No. 16 in ESPN.coms Power Rankings, the highest theyve ever ranked. Theyre also ranked highly in the BCS Standings (No. 23), AP Top 25 (No. 19) and USA Today College Coaches Poll (No. 22), thanks to the dominating win that put them at 6-1 on the season and 3-0 in the AAC, in which they share the lead with Houston. Each week you have to treat it like a championship game, Head Coach George OLeary said hed told his players. The Knights wouldnt let up against UConn. Despite playing a UConn Huskies team that hadnt won a game all season, the Knights still managed to jump up a few notches in the standings, thanks in part to strong play on the offensive side that saw the Knights jump out to a 45-10 lead by the end of the half. They held and even extended that lead while platooning second stringers for most of the second half. By the time he had left the game midway through the third quarter, quarterback Blake Bortles had thrown for 286 yards with four touchdown passes, a 16-yard third-down touchdown run, and zero interceptions. Coming in to replace him, freshman backup quarterback Justin Holman threw for 65 yards and a touchdown pass, though he did throw the Knights only interception of the game. With the broad lead, the Knights even had chances to try some unusual Wild Knight plays, putting wide receiver Jeff Godfrey back in at quarterback for a couple of snaps to test out new plays. But it was at receiver where Godfrey shined, catching three touchdown passes in the game, two of them acrobatic catches that seemed to defy gravity. Elusive receiver J.J. Worton went 119 yards on six receptions to lead the Knights on the receiving corps, including a tackle-breaking 61-yard scamper that took him all the way to the end zone to start the third quarter. showed some leg in the game, extending his 9-for-9 season with a dead center. Defensive back Sean Maag had an unusual game in which he only grabbed one tackle, but picked up a fumble and an interception. Defensive end Troy Gray made a diving catch of his own for an interception. The Knights take another week off before hosting Houston at 7 p.m. Nov. 9.

An unusual Oviedo offensive lineup ball season in a 35-27 upset on Oct. 24 at Showalter Field. The Wildcats (7-1, 3-1) entered the game undefeated on a string of convincing wins, with a clinched district title seemingly an inevitability before Oviedo (5-3, 2-1) came to town. Thats when the hobbled Lions, using backup quarterback Nick Carbone in place of star QB Chris Davis Jr., showed what they could do. Jurrell Green, the star running back who was recovering from multiple injuries, ran for 136 yards anyway, helping to balance out Carbones 120 yards passing. Davis would play receiver and defensive back, snagging a gymnastic onehanded interception to end the Wildcats The unlikely win by the Lions puts a seemingly locked-out season into disar ray, with a potential three-way Class 8A District 3 tie on the horizon. If Oviedo and nal district games, theyll force a three-way tiebreaker night with Winter Park to deter mine the district champion and runner up. Oviedos win seems the most likely, facing off at Timber Creek (4-4, 0-3), which has suffered narrow losses in all three district games so far. They play at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 1. Universitys shot is less likely, going up against Hagerty, which upended Timber Creek 35-21 in the most convincing district win of any team over the Wolves so far. That game plays at University at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 1. If both Oviedo and University manage to fall on the same night, Winter Park would clinch the district championship and Hagerty would then be in a three-way tiebreaker with Oviedo and University to determine the district runner up. If one of those teams wins Friday night and the other loses, the district could be completely sorted out at the end of the night. Winter Park, which has played all of its district games, hosts Cypress Creek at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 1. EdgewaterIt wasnt a likely win for the Eagles going into the game, having lost every game this season and facing an undefeated Apopka. By the end, no upsets were to be had. The Blue Darters obliterated the Eagles in a 70-0 loss Oct. 25, with seven touchdowns in the Bizarrely, despite having lost all nine of their games this season, the Eagles are still in the playoff hunt this week. At 7 p.m. Nov. 1 they host South Lake, which is 1-1 in district play. Meanwhile Lake Minneola, which is undefeated in the district at 2-0, plays Leesburg, which is 1-1 in district play. season and Leesburg doesnt upset Lake Minneola, three teams in Class 6A District 10 would be 1-2. That would force a threeway tiebreaker game to determine the district runner up, which will advance to the regional playoffs. In one weekend, the winless Eagles could become playoff bound.

P age 8 | Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013 | Winter P ark / Maitland ObserverIn the diverse continent of Africa, a broad landscape of mountains, savannah plains, rainforests and deserts teems with life. Lions stalk zebras in the grasslands throughout east and South Africa, Silverback gorillas roam the dense jungles in the central part of the continent, and indigenous tribes live off the land as their ancestors have for hundreds of years. Thousands of miles away in Central Florida, Luxury Tours business owner Sunit Sanghrajka hopes to bring Winter Park residents to the evolving continent; to help them catch a glimpse of a dramatically shifting landscape where wildlife and ancient tribes are under pressure from the encroaching modern world. Travel + Leisure magazine will recognize Sanghrajka for his knowledge of African tourism this month on its 2013 A-List, a collection of the worlds top travel advisors separated by region. But the list also shows a trend of growth in African tourism over the past 10 years, Sanghrajka said. Of the 161 entries on the A-List, many of the experts call Africa their specialty. At least a quarter of that group has some focus on Africa, which is remarkable because only a decade ago there were just so many negatives, Sanghrajka said. Tourists often have avoided Africa for fear of Malaria and political violence, he said. Only in recent years have those issues begun to subside. But Zimbabwe native and former tour guide Andre Steynberg noted that Africa deals with issues like anywhere else, and that the real beauty of the continent the people, the culture and the landscape shines through. Theres something for everyone in Africa, said Steynberg, now the vice president of sales at Luxury Trips. Sanghrajka, born and raised in Kenya, quickly fell in love with his country and the continent sur rounding it. In 1993, Sanghrajka went to work in his familys safari business. That led Sanghrajka in 2005 to start Luxury Trips, the travel agency connected to his other company, Alluring Africa, which lends tourism expertise to travel agencies around the world. He eventually came to Winter Park in 2008, and opened his Luxury Trips location off of Park Avenue two years later. Orlando attracts so many people from so many different parts of the world, Sanghrajka said. For a small city, youve got a pretty incredibly international base and international focus. The wildlife in Africa remains one of the greatest draws for tourism, but many of these animals are dwindling in number, either because of poachers or transmitted diseases. There are only about 20,000 lions in Africa today, 30,000 less than the amount estimated in the 1990s, according to National Geographic. As people become more learned, they realize how rare this oppor animal in its natural habitat, Sanghrajka said. Winter Park resident Mary Langley took in the experience in March with her husband, traveling to Zambia, Botswana and Cape Town, South Africa, for three weeks. Langley snapped hundreds of photographs of elephants, giraffes and lions. Its like this is what our creator wanted our earth to be like, Langley said. It was very spiritual, because everything was beautiful, pristine and natural. The untouched nature of Africa can be seen not only in the wildlife, but in the indigenous people, Sanghrajka said. Along Lake Eyasi in Tanzania, the Hadzabe tribe practices customs dating back hundreds of years ago, including traditional bow and arrow hunting and the hunter/gatherer system. Tourists can spend a day within their tribe, encountering a way of life passed on for generations. If it was just completely up to me, absolutely every trip that we plan would have that emphasis, Sanghrajka said. Thats because of the impending change that African tribes face from the outside world, Sanghrajka said. Growing economies and advances in communication press in on the rural tribes, forcing education upon them and causing their ancient customs to fade away. Professional photographers Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher, who have photographed African tribes since the 1980s, have said tribes are quickly disappearing each time they release a new photo book, which theyve done four times in the past 10 years. Almost 100 people have travelled to Africa since Luxury Trips came to Park Avenue, with 90 percent of them coming from the Winter Park area. Sanghrajka admitted that Africa evolves and changes as time goes on, but said that the free spirit of Africa and the sense of belonging it gives will always remain. Africa is one of those destinations where it actually does something to your soul, Sanghrajka said. I think when people go to Africa theres a sense of belonging, and its very hard to describe.Lifestyles Finally, champagne brunch in the Serengeti Kenyan tourguide takes Winter Park tourists on trips deep into the heart of AfricaTIM FREED Observer staff H O U S E S W A N T E D !

P age 12 | Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013 | Winter P ark / Maitland Observer Welcome to the lifestyles of the rich and famous the Filthy Rich that is. Step inside one of Winter Parks newest attractions tering jewels designed to make you look and feel exactly like a celebrity. The concept behind Park Avenues family-run jewelry store, Filthy Rich, is simple: deck out ordinary folks in the style of Hollywood celebrities without the massive price tag. The store carries an array of replica jewelry from Hollywood classics like earrings featured in Gone With the Wind, to contemporary classics like Jennifer Annistons Circle of Beauty necklace. Customers can also purchase exact replicas of Elvis jewelry from the original molds. In addition to popular celebrity styles, Filthy Rich also car ries recreations of famous pieces like the De Beers three-stone diamond ring and a David Yurmaninspired twist bracelet. Ladies like to come in here and purchase replicas of their favorite pieces to take on vacation, said owner Mike Shurtleff. This way they can travel with the much less expensive replicas and leave their valuable pieces safely at home. He said the store is also popular with brides who want something unique to wear on their big day without breaking the bank. A longtime Winter Park resident, Shur tleff began Filthy Rich 10 years ago after selling his successful conFollowing the sale of his business, he opened a museum featuring replica British Crown jewels on Inter national Drive as a fun hobby. But a chance encounter in an antique shop on Orange Avenue would change everything. While browsing one day, he came across a replica of Marilyn Monroes pendant from How to Marry a Millionaire. After purchasing it for $8, he put it on display in his museum and before he knew it, the replica of the famous pendant became the star attraction. Realizing he was onto something, Shurtleff says he called his sign guy and had all the signage changed, and Filthy Rich was born. Now with stores in 15 states expansion, Shurtleff and his family have turned a fun retirement hobby into a lucrative franchise. The best part Shurtleff says was when he was able to secure Park Avenue. I get to work with my wife and daughter every day and walk home for dinner, what could be better than that, he said. Shurtleffs daughter, Tracey Kuhn came on board as store manager shortly after the Winter Park location opened this past spring. Its been a dream come true for me, said Kuhn. Its wonder ful to spend so much time with my mom and dad. It feels good, natural. Everyday at work, she said, is like a day of dress up for grownups. They get to look and feel like celebrities, with out the big-buck price tag. People come in the store for the celebrity factor, but they keep coming back for the prices, Kuhn said. With average prices ranging around $70, fans can easily adorn themselves identically to their favorite celebrities, past or present. Shurtleff said 50 percent of his customers are return customers. I think its because we are the most fun store on Park Avenue, he said. Theres nothing like being Filthy Rich.PHOTO BY ALLISON OLCSVAY THE OBSER VERThe allure of star-studded style of Hollywood inspired owner Mike Shurtleff to start Filthy Rich after selling his consumer research rm.

P age 14 | Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013 | Winter P ark / Maitland Observer While it seems like only yesterday, it has been nearly two weeks since the conclusion of Harrietts Park Avenue Fashion Week. The seven-day celebration of fashion and design held more than 65 in-store events, showcased 20 local boutiques and celebrated the Women of Hope, an auxiliary group for Community Food and Outreach Center. The event is truly a passion for the volunteer organizing committee, led this year by Sarah Grafton, financial advisor at Grafton Wealth Management at Merrill Lynch. Sarahs passion for Park Avenue was honed as a past-president of the Park Avenue Merchants Association and her leadership truly catapulted the event to new heights in 2013. Three recent additions to Park Avenue were featured on the runway including Forema Boutique, which moved into the former Earth Inspired Living spot on North Park Avenue. This is the second location for owner Sarah Katsandris, who has a boutique in Fort Myers as well. Also featured on the runway was nearby Wearable Art, which while not new to Park Avenue, has a new owner and is introducing new art-inspired pieces to its collection. Be sure to stop by and meet Esa Everroad, who is relocating from Wisconsin to be close to the stores operations. Finally, Red Carpet Couture showcased beautiful designer dresses and accessories on the runway. Look for the store to open soon on Morse Boulevard in the former Things and Fashion space, as it is currently closed for renovations. Under the tentEach year the West Meadow is host to a variety of events in and around what begins as the Fashion Week tent. Last weekend the tent was home to the third annual Cows & Cabs event, a charity fundraiser dreamt up by John Rivers, chef and owner at 4 Rivers Smokehouse and David and Tina Larue of ABC Fine Wine & Spir its. The evening helped raise much needed awareness and support for Evolve Orlando and Community Food and Outreach Center during a food-and-wine walk around. Next up, look for the tent to get a little smaller and cooler as the city welcomes Winter in the Park, the annual holiday ice skating rink on Nov. 15. The opening of the rink coincides with the launch of The Observers new holiday guide (look for that in your paper soon) and the online voting for The Ovations, the best of guide to our community, as voted by you, the readers. Therell be more on that soon. Lastly, look for the return of the beloved Winter Park Har vest Festival on Nov. 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The fourth annual event will showcase the best of Central Floridas local farmers and artisans in a producer-only market featuring everything needed to create a locally sourced Thanksgiving dinner. For details on workshops and more information, visit winter parkharvestfestival.comHappy hour for hungerThinking about making that Thanksgiving dinner made my tummy growl for a second, which also reminded me about Feed the Need, our communitys one of a kind effort to support Second Harvest Food Bank this season. The fundraising effort begins Nov. 1 and continues through Nov. 22 with a variety of ways for businesses, schools, churches and residents to get involved. Look for information at feedtheneedwp.org. The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce is participating in the fundraising campaign, but also hosting a special fall-themed happy hour event with all ticket proceeds going to help Feed the Need.

This is a tremendous effort that addresses a serious need in our community, said Mayor Ken Bradley in a press release. I commend the partners and sponsors in joining forces to help end hunger in Winter Park and Central Florida. I will be supporting them through this worthy endeavor. What started in 2008 as a collaborative effort between fraternities and sororities at Rollins College and Sodexo Food Services for a canned food drive has evolved over the years. The first year, students raised more than 3,700 pounds of food. In 2010, the campus reached out to the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce for support and the organization agreed to host a fall-themed happy hour event with the proceeds used to pur chase food to add to the scales. The result was more than 16,000 pounds of food, which grew to nearly 31,000 pounds of food in 2012. Now collaboration and commitment have been extended to the community as Rollins College, Sodexo and the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce add the city of Winter Park and Think Creative to the list of partners. This group, along with local businesses, schools, organizations, churches and residents are uniting in an effort to raise funds $50,000 for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. Instead of your average food drive, the fund drive will allow even more of our neighbors in need to be fed. Through the purchasing power of Second Harvest, for every $1 donated, up to $9 worth of grocery product is provided. At the City Commission meeting on Oct. 28, Mayor Ken Bradley proudly proclaimed the month of November as Feed the Need Month in the city of Winter Park and a campaign kick-off event is scheduled for Oct. 31, at 10 a.m. at City Hall. To learn more about the campaign, form a fundraising team or learn about other events, visit feedtheneedwp.org. The campaign also has a Facebook page at facebook.com/feedtheneedwinterpark where updates and photos will be shared throughout the month of November.

Winter P ark / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013 | P age 15Why do people join gyms? There are a number of reasons, from having built-in motivation or the variety of offerings, to having an alternative to exer cise during inclement weather. Whatever the reason, a consistent fitness program offered by a gym is one of the best ways to ensure good health. What about your dog? Does the idea of your dog belonging to a gym sound far fetched? Not really! Just like human gyms in the s, fitness programs for dogs are popping up in various parts of the country. If youre the kind of person who recognizes the health benefits of regular structured exercise, youll also realize the same is true for your dog. Most dogs, however, dont get the quality and quantity of exercise they need. In our jam-packed, hectic lives many of our dogs simply get a walk around the block. Others get no exercise at all. In these situations, a gym can definitely be of benefit. As with humans, dogs who get little to no exercise often wind up overweight, experienc ing many of the same diseases and conditions we do. The statistics are alarming 54 per cent of all dogs are overweight. Diabetes in dogs is rising at a faster rate than in humans, up 46 percent since 2005. Over weight dogs may also suffer joint problems, heart disease, increased risk of cancer, and more. But more important is their decreased quality of life, and shortened life span. How does a gym benefit your dog? Most importantly, they are staffed by canine fitness professionals who know best how to work out each dog. And gyms have all the necessary equipment so you dont have to buy it and try to figure out how to get your dog to use it! Plus, when your dog regularly goes to the gym, you no longer have to worry about making sure he gets enough exercise after you get home from a long day at work. Instead, you can relax knowing he has been appropriately exercised. So, do yourself and your dog a favor give the gym a try!Sherri Cappabianca, an expert in the eld of canine health and tness, is the author of two books on canine health, and is the co-owner of Rockys Retreat Canine Health & Fitness Center, and Barking Dog Fitness, a gym for dogs, both located in Orlando.

The only time I ever saw men with uncovered galluses was perhaps in a North Georgia country store where farmers chatted in a circle around a pot-bellied stove. Now the T.V. fashion seems to be men in galluses without a jacket. Perhaps this is some kind of clandestine signal to prepare us for other more tasteless things to come.

Personally, I can think of no one worse than our present leader. The guy seems unable to deliver the goods in anything he has undertaken. He may yet outdo FDR in borrowing money. We may end up behind the poor house. His rhetoric is risible, and he is now even getting mixed up in his own lies! What are we going to do about this guy? Nothing.

He has been called everything in the books by various politicos, but, whatever his true politics may be, there is a big difference between making things fair, and making things equal. Fair is the American way. The only true equality is in the 24 hours a day each of us is granted. life: It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds Nuff said! good chance to shut up! doesnt mean Im oblivious to bad things happening to good people, Im describing your daily walk-around demeanor. What you project typically is what you receive. Two considerations come to mind with my modest maxim. That of the mirror, which reveals the outward, and that Coco Chanel suggested you get the face, at age 50, you deserve. Im inclined to believe thata bitas I think if youre pinched on the inside, its challenging not to wear a face equally withered. Although the word faade easily comes to mind. for this column consider these two: mirror and to think seriously. Two meanings at almost polar opposites. I am amazed at the number of Americans who, by their own admission, do not read a mix of newspapers, magazines, journals or literature. Who do not read, period. Many, if not a majority of Americans, rely on television for their news. Many who occupy the Right spectrum of politics, rather the Right Side of Stupid, gather their ignorance at the trough of FOX News or through talk radio wingnuts such Rush Limbaugh. Glen Beck is the appropriate example of the Propeller-Beanie-Hat Tea Party patriot. He has thousands of loyal adherents who willingly, nay, eagerly gulp down the Kool-Aid of rightwing apocalyptic drivel. Actually, some pay money by subscribing to Becks rants that America is on the slippery slope to commie socialism, Obamacare is SatanCare and every sperm is sacred. Becks conspiracies abound, that they (insidious Liberal rats) are coming for your guns but only after requiring your daughters to abort while renouncing God. Im shocked. Shocked that anyone subscribes to such drivel. But, hey, free speech. That is truly one of the great things about Amer ica. Youre free to be as inanely simplistic (see: Ted Cruz) as you want to be. Go from FOX and Limbaugh. For instance, youre free to parrot the Tea Party line that America defaulting (even temporar ily) on its debt is an appropriate way of expressing displeasure with government. So what the cost of borrowing goes up for the nation (individuals, corporations, government). the banal, simplistic slogans that rally the unthinking Right or perchance, to actually One Republican is actually doing that. Thinking. And, weighing his odds at reelection. New York Times writer Trip Gabriel recently interviewed Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Im concerned about the fact there seems to be a war on the poor. That if youre poor, somehow your shiftless and lazy, observed Kasich before asking, You know what? The very people who complain ought to ask their grandparents if they worked at the W.P.A. I would add, have you refused your Medicare insurance or returned your Social Security payments? This is what I do not understand about the Right. X percentage of our fellow citizens, for any number of legitimate reasons, cannot sustain themselves on their own. This includes children, elderly, sick, disabled veterans and the mentally challenged. If X is 10 percent, that, at a minimum, is 31 million Americans. That is equivalent to the entire state populations of New York and Pennsylvania. What exactly, as a nation, do we collectively do to address that challenge? As important, what do we intelligently try (public policy) to actually reduce the percentage? Reect Jepson is a 27-year resident of Central Florida.

Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013Serving Winter Park, Maitland, Baldwin Park, College Park and Goldenrod50+ tax WPMOBSERVER.COM Please see PERLMAN on page 2 Itzhak Perlman never felt the crushing oppression of Nazi occupation or suffered the horrors of concentration camps, but his world was nonetheless shaped by the events that took place mere years before his birth. His parents were fortunate to leave Poland in the 1930s for what would become Israel, his grandparents and other family members stayed behind hoping like so many others that the trouble would pass and they would be able to stay at home. History tells the ugly truth though, from the night of terror, destruction and persecution in 1938 known as Kristallnacht or the Night of Broken Glass, to the tion camp, precious little would remain for Jews to rebuild their lives. For Perlman it would mean growing up without any relatives older than his parents. No grandparents to tell him stories, teach him songs or the words of ancient prayers. He would grow up in a world scarred by events of the past, bearing his own burdens from a bout with polio suffered at the age of four. a beginning an excuse for bitterness and anger, instead Perlman picked up a violin and showed the world, through music, all the anguish, heartache, beauty and joy the human soul can possess. Music is a part of societys soul, that emotional experience when you hear music is something society needs, Perlman said. From performances on Sesame Street to the inauguration of President Obama, Perlman has shared his talent and his sense of humor, delighting audiences of all ages. It makes me feel old to talk about it now, but playing on Sesame Street was really a lot of fun, meeting all the characters, like Big Bird and that guy in the trash can Oscar, was really cool, Perlman said. Not the same kind of excitement as playing the White House though, that was exciting because of what it stands for, the history you know, I was always excited to go there. Perlman, known as much for his humor and humility as for his music, will visit Rollins College on Nov. 7 as part of the A Winter Park landmark came another step closer to a brighter from the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Garden celebrated the groundbreaking for the relocation of the historic Capen House to the museums grounds. The groundbreaking marked a turning point in a community effort to save the home, which began in June when property owners nearly had it destroyed to make way for a new house after the City Commission voted to remove its historic designation. The museum guaranteed the $650,000-relocation in late September when they announced that they would tap into their reserves to make up the differ ence of the $400,000 left over after donations from Winter Park residents. Its kind of emotional to be honest; so much has been done by so many people to get to this point, said Debbie Komanski, executive director of the museum. Across Lake Osceola at the Capen House site, workers are currently clearing the area around the house and its crawlspace underneath so that movers can begin the process of cutting the house into two pieces. Movers should begin the process of building the ramp and the lake at the end of this week. Its very, very exciting because so much has transpired to get us to this point, said Frank Roark, the general contractor for the relocation. We started off early on where it seemed like there was such a steep hill to climb in terms of just the provisupport to make this happen in such a short period of time. But the most recent twist in the museums effort to save the house came when a Winter Park organization called Concerned Citizens for Historic Preservation Inc. sued the city of Winter Park for removing the historic tentially hindering the relocation CC apen breaks groundPolasek Museum celebrates houses groundbreakingTIM FREED Observer staff Please see HOUSE on page 2A chicken-keeping pilot proin Maitland following the City Council unanimously approving ban chickens in June, causing other neighbors to cry foul over the idea of feathered friends roosting in bordering backyards. After months of research, city staff drafted the ordinance allowing participating residents to house four hens each for a trail period to monitor coop compliance. On Monday the Council rewrote program would be limited to 50 homes and last 18 months. Orlando launched a similar two-year trial program in 2012, and agriculturist Dennis Mudge with the Orange County Extension Services said the city has since received no complaints about the coops or their egg-laying occupants. Ive worked closely with the 75 people in Orlando, and honestly the other neighbors dont even know where the chickens are, Mudge said. If you take the burden of all your pets, its going to be larger than that of the chickens in the city of Maitland.

The event, held in conjunction with others throughout Central Florida, commemorates the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht, which occurred the night Nov. 9, 1938 in towns and cities across Germany and Austria. Throughout that night and into the next morning, Jewish homes, businesses and synagogues were looted, destroyed, burned or otherwise desecrated. As many as 100 people were killed in the Night of Broken Glass, so named for the shattered windows that lined the streets when the sun came up the next morning. Up to 30,000 men were round up and sent to concentration camps, marking the beginning of large-scale Jewish incarcerations based only on their religion.

It doesnt change our plans in any way for moving the house, Roark said. Komanski said the move itself will be completed by mid-December, meeting the deadline of Dec. 31 set by the Capen House property owners. The museum still needs $150,000 for the second phase, which includes setting the houses foundation and putting the pieces of the home together. Komanski remained hopeful that the project would succeed despite the lawsuit against the city. Were acting in good faith, she said. Were pressing forward. We have a deadline to meet and were going to meet it, and hope that this will all be resolved soon. A third phase is also planned, which will also take care of lightning, furnishing and creating walkways to the house.

It is a common theme throughout his work, that determination of spirit and unquenchable zest for life. Recently he has brought his considerable talent to another project close to home in the form of Klezmer music. to return to the music I was born with, Perlman said. Until recently, I had never played it, but once I began, I realized it came naturally, the sound was something I was used to as a child growing up in Israel. Klezmer music is the traditional Jewish folk music of Eastern Europe, brought over by immigrants and Holocaust survivors to the United States. It is often heard at Jewish weddings and celebrations. Reviving this traditional music has been the project of many Jewish musicians, such as Perlman, since its near loss following the Holocaust. In addition to a busy schedule of performances and appearances the world over, the 68-year-old musician dedicates much of his time to teaching the next generation of musicians through the Perlman Music Program founded by his wife, Toby. Besides a good meal, some of my greatest joys come from playing, conducting and teaching, he said, each one supports the other. One of the great challenges when you grow up with music and you are getting a little older, is to make sure that you dont get bored by what you are doing, especially when you have done it so many years. And I am happy to report that I am far from being exciting.

Hands-on training for CPR and AED provide students with the tools necessary to respond to heart-related medical emergencies. The Maitland Fire/Rescue Department conducted a free class as part of a new initiative to train as many people in the community in CPR and AED use as possible assembled in the City Council Chambers to learn and practice CPR and Choking Rescue for adults, infants and children. Unparamedics, the students pressed on the plastic chests of mannequins to the rhythm of the disco music Staying Alive. For many it was a new experience, for others it was a refresher. Training enough people in CPR to ensure that the lifesaving procedure will be provided for witnessed out-of-hospital cardiac arrest cases in a community reportion of the population. The Maitland Fire Department will be offering the classes at least twice per year in the hopes of reaching as many Maitland residents and visitors as possible. brillator, or AED, is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses potentially lifethreatening cardiac arrhythmias in a patient and is able to treat plication of electrical therapy that stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm. With simple audio and visual commands, AEDs are designed to be used by anyone. While training is not required, familiarity with an AED can prorespond accordingly in a medical emergency.

PP age 6 | T T hursday, OO ct. 31, 2013 | W W inter PP ark / M M aitland O O bserverThe UCF Knights are the highest theyve ever been ranked in national polling after destroying UConn in a 62-17 rout Oct. 26 at home. The Knights hadnt been home for a month while they rocketed into the top 25 standings of four NCAA FBS polls in the wake of a 38-35 shocker over Louisville on Oct. 18. After annihilating UConn, it only got better. The Knights are No. 16 in ESPN.coms Power Rankings, the highest theyve ever ranked. Theyre also ranked highly in the BCS Standings (No. 23), AP Top 25 (No. 19) and USA Today College Coaches Poll (No. 22), thanks to the dominating win that put them at 6-1 on the season and 3-0 in the AAC, in which they share the lead with Houston. Each week you have to treat it like a championship game, Head Coach George OLeary said hed told his players. The Knights wouldnt let up against UConn. Despite playing a UConn Huskies team that hadnt won a game all season, the Knights still managed to jump up a few notches in the standings, thanks in part to strong play on the offensive side that saw the Knights jump out to a 45-10 lead by the end of the half. They held and even extended that lead while platooning second stringers for most of the second half. By the time he had left the game midway through the third quarter, quarterback Blake Bortles had thrown for 286 yards with four touchdown passes, a 16-yard third-down touchdown run, and zero interceptions. Coming in to replace him, freshman backup quarterback Justin Holman threw for 65 yards and a touchdown pass, though he did throw the Knights only interception of the game. With the broad lead, the Knights even had chances to try some unusual Wild Knight plays, putting wide receiver Jeff Godfrey back in at quarterback for a couple of snaps to test out new plays. But it was at receiver where Godfrey shined, catching three touchdown passes in the game, two of them acrobatic catches that seemed to defy gravity. Elusive receiver J.J. Worton went 119 yards on six receptions to lead the Knights on the receiving corps, including a tackle-breaking 61-yard scamper that took him all the way to the end zone to start the third quarter. showed some leg in the game, extending his 9-for-9 season with a dead center. Defensive back Sean Maag had an unusual game in which he only grabbed one tackle, but picked up a fumble and an interception. Defensive end Troy Gray made a diving catch of his own for an interception. The Knights take another week off before hosting Houston at 7 p.m. Nov. 9.

An unusual Oviedo offensive lineup ball season in a 35-27 upset on Oct. 24 at Showalter Field. The Wildcats (7-1, 3-1) entered the game undefeated on a string of convincing wins, with a clinched district title seemingly an inevitability before Oviedo (5-3, 2-1) came to town. Thats when the hobbled Lions, using backup quarterback Nick Carbone in place of star QB Chris Davis Jr., showed what they could do. Jurrell Green, the star running back who was recovering from multiple injuries, ran for 136 yards anyway, helping to balance out Carbones 120 yards passing. Davis would play receiver and defensive back, snagging a gymnastic onehanded interception to end the Wildcats The unlikely win by the Lions puts a seemingly locked-out season into disar ray, with a potential three-way Class 8A District 3 tie on the horizon. If Oviedo and nal district games, theyll force a three-way tiebreaker night with Winter Park to deter mine the district champion and runner up. Oviedos win seems the most likely, facing off at Timber Creek (4-4, 0-3), which has suffered narrow losses in all three district games so far. They play at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 1. Universitys shot is less likely, going up against Hagerty, which upended Timber Creek 35-21 in the most convincing district win of any team over the Wolves so far. That game plays at University at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 1. If both Oviedo and University manage to fall on the same night, Winter Park would clinch the district championship and Hagerty would then be in a three-way tiebreaker with Oviedo and University to determine the district runner up. If one of those teams wins Friday night and the other loses, the district could be completely sorted out at the end of the night. Winter Park, which has played all of its district games, hosts Cypress Creek at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 1. EE dgewaterIt wasnt a likely win for the Eagles going into the game, having lost every game this season and facing an undefeated Apopka. By the end, no upsets were to be had. The Blue Darters obliterated the Eagles in a 70-0 loss Oct. 25, with seven touchdowns in the Bizarrely, despite having lost all nine of their games this season, the Eagles are still in the playoff hunt this week. At 7 p.m. Nov. 1 they host South Lake, which is 1-1 in district play. Meanwhile Lake Minneola, which is undefeated in the district at 2-0, plays Leesburg, which is 1-1 in district play. season and Leesburg doesnt upset Lake Minneola, three teams in Class 6A District 10 would be 1-2. That would force a threeway tiebreaker game to determine the district runner up, which will advance to the regional playoffs. In one weekend, the winless Eagles could become playoff bound.

PP age 8 | T T hursday, OO ct. 31, 2013 | W W inter PP ark / M M aitland O O bserverIn the diverse continent of Africa, a broad landscape of mountains, savannah plains, rainforests and deserts teems with life. Lions stalk zebras in the grasslands throughout east and South Africa, Silverback gorillas roam the dense jungles in the central part of the continent, and indigenous tribes live off the land as their ancestors have for hundreds of years. Thousands of miles away in Central Florida, Luxury Tours business owner Sunit Sanghrajka hopes to bring Winter Park residents to the evolving continent; to help them catch a glimpse of a dramatically shifting landscape where wildlife and ancient tribes are under pressure from the encroaching modern world. Travel + Leisure magazine will recognize Sanghrajka for his knowledge of African tourism this month on its 2013 A-List, a collection of the worlds top travel advisors separated by region. But the list also shows a trend of growth in African tourism over the past 10 years, Sanghrajka said. Of the 161 entries on the A-List, many of the experts call Africa their specialty. At least a quarter of that group has some focus on Africa, which is remarkable because only a decade ago there were just so many negatives, Sanghrajka said. Tourists often have avoided Africa for fear of Malaria and political violence, he said. Only in recent years have those issues begun to subside. But Zimbabwe native and former tour guide Andre Steynberg noted that Africa deals with issues like anywhere else, and that the real beauty of the continent the people, the culture and the landscape shines through. Theres something for everyone in Africa, said Steynberg, now the vice president of sales at Luxury Trips. Sanghrajka, born and raised in Kenya, quickly fell in love with his country and the continent surrounding it. In 1993, Sanghrajka went to work in his familys safari business. That led Sanghrajka in 2005 to start Luxury Trips, the travel agency connected to his other company, Alluring Africa, which lends tourism expertise to travel agencies around the world. He eventually came to Winter Park in 2008, and opened his Luxury Trips location off of Park Avenue two years later. Orlando attracts so many people from so many different parts of the world, Sanghrajka said. For a small city, youve got a pretty incredibly international base and international focus. The wildlife in Africa remains one of the greatest draws for tourism, but many of these animals are dwindling in number, either because of poachers or transmitted diseases. There are only about 20,000 lions in Africa today, 30,000 less than the amount estimated in the 1990s, according to National Geographic. As people become more learned, they realize how rare this opporanimal in its natural habitat, Sanghrajka said. Winter Park resident Mary Langley took in the experience in March with her husband, traveling to Zambia, Botswana and Cape Town, South Africa, for three weeks. Langley snapped hundreds of photographs of elephants, giraffes and lions. Its like this is what our creator wanted our earth to be like, Langley said. It was very spiritual, because everything was beautiful, pristine and natural. The untouched nature of Africa can be seen not only in the wildlife, but in the indigenous people, Sanghrajka said. Along Lake Eyasi in Tanzania, the Hadzabe tribe practices customs dating back hundreds of years ago, including traditional bow and arrow hunting and the hunter/gatherer system. Tourists can spend a day within their tribe, encountering a way of life passed on for generations. If it was just completely up to me, absolutely every trip that we plan would have that emphasis, Sanghrajka said. Thats because of the impending change that African tribes face from the outside world, Sanghrajka said. Growing economies and advances in communication press in on the rural tribes, forcing education upon them and causing their ancient customs to fade away. Professional photographers Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher, who have photographed African tribes since the 1980s, have said tribes are quickly disappearing each time they release a new photo book, which theyve done four times in the past 10 years. Almost 100 people have travelled to Africa since Luxury Trips came to Park Avenue, with 90 percent of them coming from the Winter Park area. Sanghrajka admitted that Africa evolves and changes as time goes on, but said that the free spirit of Africa and the sense of belonging it gives will always remain. Africa is one of those destinations where it actually does something to your soul, Sanghrajka said. I think when people go to Africa theres a sense of belonging, and its very hard to describe.

PP age 12 | T T hursday, OO ct. 31, 2013 | W W inter PP ark / M M aitland O O bserver Welcome to the lifestyles of the rich and famous the Filthy Rich that is. Step inside one of Winter Parks newest attractions tering jewels designed to make you look and feel exactly like a celebrity. The concept behind Park Avenues family-run jewelry store, Filthy Rich, is simple: deck out ordinary folks in the style of Hollywood celebrities without the massive price tag. The store carries an array of replica jewelry from Hollywood classics like earrings featured in Gone With the Wind, to contemporary classics like Jennifer Annistons Circle of Beauty necklace. Customers can also purchase exact replicas of Elvis jewelry from the original molds. In addition to popular celebrity styles, Filthy Rich also car ries recreations of famous pieces like the De Beers three-stone diamond ring and a David Yurmaninspired twist bracelet. Ladies like to come in here and purchase replicas of their favorite pieces to take on vacation, said owner Mike Shurtleff. This way they can travel with the much less expensive replicas and leave their valuable pieces safely at home. He said the store is also popular with brides who want something unique to wear on their big day without breaking the bank. A longtime Winter Park resident, Shur tleff began Filthy Rich 10 years ago after selling his successful conFollowing the sale of his business, he opened a museum featuring replica British Crown jewels on Inter national Drive as a fun hobby. But a chance encounter in an antique shop on Orange Avenue would change everything. While browsing one day, he came across a replica of Marilyn Monroes pendant from How to Marry a Millionaire. After purchasing it for $8, he put it on display in his museum and before he knew it, the replica of the famous pendant became the star attraction. Realizing he was onto something, Shurtleff says he called his sign guy and had all the signage changed, and Filthy Rich was born. Now with stores in 15 states expansion, Shurtleff and his family have turned a fun retirement hobby into a lucrative franchise. The best part Shurtleff says was when he was able to secure Park Avenue. I get to work with my wife and daughter every day and walk home for dinner, what could be better than that, he said. Shurtleffs daughter, Tracey Kuhn came on board as store manager shortly after the Winter Park location opened this past spring. Its been a dream come true for me, said Kuhn. Its wonder ful to spend so much time with my mom and dad. It feels good, natural. Everyday at work, she said, is like a day of dress up for grownups. They get to look and feel like celebrities, with out the big-buck price tag. People come in the store for the celebrity factor, but they keep coming back for the prices, Kuhn said. With average prices ranging around $70, fans can easily adorn themselves identically to their favorite celebrities, past or present. Shurtleff said 50 percent of his customers are return customers. I think its because we are the most fun store on Park Avenue, he said. Theres nothing like being Filthy Rich.PH otoOTO BY ALLISON OLCSVAY tT H eE oO BS er ER V er ERTT he allure of star-studded style of HH ollywood inspired owner MM ike SS hurtleff to start Filthy RR ich after selling his consumer research rm.

PP age 14 | T T hursday, OO ct. 31, 2013 | W W inter PP ark / M M aitland O O bserver While it seems like only yesterday, it has been nearly two weeks since the conclusion of Harrietts Park Avenue Fashion Week. The seven-day celebration of fashion and design held more than 65 in-store events, showcased 20 local boutiques and celebrated the Women of Hope, an auxiliary group for Community Food and Outreach Center. The event is truly a passion for the volunteer organizing committee, led this year by Sarah Grafton, financial advisor at Grafton Wealth Management at Merrill Lynch. Sarahs passion for Park Avenue was honed as a past-president of the Park Avenue Merchants Association and her leadership truly catapulted the event to new heights in 2013. Three recent additions to Park Avenue were featured on the runway including Forema Boutique, which moved into the former Earth Inspired Living spot on North Park Avenue. This is the second location for owner Sarah Katsandris, who has a boutique in Fort Myers as well. Also featured on the runway was nearby Wearable Art, which while not new to Park Avenue, has a new owner and is introducing new art-inspired pieces to its collection. Be sure to stop by and meet Esa Everroad, who is relocating from Wisconsin to be close to the stores operations. Finally, Red Carpet Couture showcased beautiful designer dresses and accessories on the runway. Look for the store to open soon on Morse Boulevard in the former Things and Fashion space, as it is currently closed for renovations. UU nder the tentEach year the West Meadow is host to a variety of events in and around what begins as the Fashion Week tent. Last weekend the tent was home to the third annual Cows & Cabs event, a charity fundraiser dreamt up by John Rivers, chef and owner at 4 Rivers Smokehouse and David and Tina Larue of ABC Fine Wine & Spir its. The evening helped raise much needed awareness and support for Evolve Orlando and Community Food and Outreach Center during a food-and-wine walk around. Next up, look for the tent to get a little smaller and cooler as the city welcomes Winter in the Park, the annual holiday ice skating rink on Nov. 15. The opening of the rink coincides with the launch of The Observers new holiday guide (look for that in your paper soon) and the online voting for The Ovations, the best of guide to our community, as voted by you, the readers. Therell be more on that soon. Lastly, look for the return of the beloved Winter Park Har vest Festival on Nov. 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The fourth annual event will showcase the best of Central Floridas local farmers and artisans in a producer-only market featuring everything needed to create a locally sourced Thanksgiving dinner.

This is a tremendous effort that addresses a serious need in our community, said Mayor Ken Bradley in a press release. I commend the partners and sponsors in joining forces to help end hunger in Winter Park and Central Florida. I will be supporting them through this worthy endeavor. What started in 2008 as a collaborative effort between fraternities and sororities at Rollins College and Sodexo Food Services for a canned food drive has evolved over the years. The first year, students raised more than 3,700 pounds of food. In 2010, the campus reached out to the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce for support and the organization agreed to host a fall-themed happy hour event with the proceeds used to pur chase food to add to the scales. The result was more than 16,000 pounds of food, which grew to nearly 31,000 pounds of food in 2012. Now collaboration and commitment have been extended to the community as Rollins College, Sodexo and the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce add the city of Winter Park and Think Creative to the list of partners. This group, along with local businesses, schools, organizations, churches and residents are uniting in an effort to raise funds $50,000 for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. Instead of your average food drive, the fund drive will allow even more of our neighbors in need to be fed. Through the purchasing power of Second Harvest, for every $1 donated, up to $9 worth of grocery product is provided. At the City Commission meeting on Oct. 28, Mayor Ken Bradley proudly proclaimed the month of November as Feed the Need Month in the city of Winter Park and a campaign kick-off event is scheduled for Oct. 31, at 10 a.m. at City Hall. To learn more about the campaign, form a fundraising team or learn about other events, visit feedtheneedwp.org.

WW inter PP ark / M M aitland O O bserver | T T hursday, OO ct. 31, 2013 | PP age 15Why do people join gyms? There are a number of reasons, from having built-in motivation or the variety of offerings, to having an alternative to exer cise during inclement weather. Whatever the reason, a consistent fitness program offered by a gym is one of the best ways to ensure good health. What about your dog? Does the idea of your dog belonging to a gym sound far fetched? Not really! Just like human gyms in the s, fitness programs for dogs are popping up in various parts of the country. If youre the kind of person who recognizes the health benefits of regular structured exercise, youll also realize the same is true for your dog. Most dogs, however, dont get the quality and quantity of exercise they need. In our jam-packed, hectic lives many of our dogs simply get a walk around the block. Others get no exercise at all. In these situations, a gym can definitely be of benefit. As with humans, dogs who get little to no exercise often wind up overweight, experienc ing many of the same diseases and conditions we do. The statistics are alarming 54 per cent of all dogs are overweight. Diabetes in dogs is rising at a faster rate than in humans, up 46 percent since 2005. Over weight dogs may also suffer joint problems, heart disease, increased risk of cancer, and more. But more important is their decreased quality of life, and shortened life span. How does a gym benefit your dog? Most importantly, they are staffed by canine fitness professionals who know best how to work out each dog. And gyms have all the necessary equipment so you dont have to buy it and try to figure out how to get your dog to use it! Plus, when your dog regularly goes to the gym, you no longer have to worry about making sure he gets enough exercise after you get home from a long day at work. Instead, you can relax knowing he has been appropriately exercised. So, do yourself and your dog a favor give the gym a try!

This concept will, of course, promote the simple buying by him of Democratic votes with our money. The power that you and I now have over our future will thus be further diluted.

But, these galluses were always covered, and never worn in sight over a shirt without a jacket. The only time I ever saw men with uncovered galluses was perhaps in a North Georgia country store where farmers chatted in a circle around a pot-bellied stove. Now the T.V. fashion seems to be men in galluses without a jacket. Perhaps this is some kind of clandestine signal to prepare us for other more tasteless things to come.

Personally, I can think of no one worse than our present leader. The guy seems unable to deliver the goods in anything he has undertaken. He may yet outdo FDR in borrowing money. We may end up behind the poor house. His rhetoric is risible, and he is now even getting mixed up in his own lies! What are we going to do about this guy? Nothing. We elected him and we are stuck with him. Can we learn from this experience? One would certainly hope so! nuts? For many years I lived in Europe where a 12to 15percent tip was included on restaurant bills as service. Only if service had been especially good did one perhaps chose to leave a 2to 5percent small addition as rewarding Trinkgeld. Some say tip stands for to insure promptness and is not meant to be a charity. Now we hear in the U.S. that a 25-percent tip may become the accepted standard.... Whadda ya mean?

He has been called everything in the books by various politicos, but, whatever his true politics may be, there is a big difference between making things fair, and making things equal. Fair is the American way. The only true equality is in the 24 hours a day each of us is granted. life: It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds Nuff said! good chance to shut up! doesnt mean Im oblivious to bad things happening to good people, Im describing your daily walk-around demeanor. What you project typically is what you receive. Two considerations come to mind with my modest maxim. That of the mirror, which reveals the outward, and that Coco Chanel suggested you get the face, at age 50, you deserve. Im inclined to believe thata bitas I think if youre pinched on the inside, its challenging not to wear a face equally withered. Although the word faade easily comes to mind. for this column consider these two: mirror and to think seriously. Two meanings at almost polar opposites. I am amazed at the number of Americans who, by their own admission, do not read a mix of newspapers, magazines, journals or literature. Who do not read, period. Many, if not a majority of Americans, rely on television for their news. Many who occupy the Right spectrum of politics, rather the Right Side of Stupid, gather their ignorance at the trough of FOX News or through talk radio wingnuts such Rush Limbaugh. Glen Beck is the appropriate example of the Propeller-Beanie-Hat Tea Party patriot. He has thousands of loyal adherents who willingly, nay, eagerly gulp down the Kool-Aid of rightwing apocalyptic drivel. Actually, some pay money by subscribing to Becks rants that America is on the slippery slope to commie socialism, Obamacare is SatanCare and every sperm is sacred. Becks conspiracies abound, that they (insidious Liberal rats) are coming for your guns but only after requiring your daughters to abort while renouncing God. Im shocked. Shocked that anyone subscribes to such drivel. But, hey, free speech. That is truly one of the great things about Amer ica. Youre free to be as inanely simplistic (see: Ted Cruz) as you want to be. Go from FOX and Limbaugh. For instance, youre free to parrot the Tea Party line that America defaulting (even temporar ily) on its debt is an appropriate way of expressing displeasure with government. So what the cost of borrowing goes up for the nation (individuals, corporations, government). the banal, simplistic slogans that rally the unthinking Right or perchance, to actually One Republican is actually doing that. Thinking. And, weighing his odds at reelection. New York Times writer Trip Gabriel recently interviewed Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Im concerned about the fact there seems to be a war on the poor. That if youre poor, somehow your shiftless and lazy, observed Kasich before asking, You know what? The very people who complain ought to ask their grandparents if they worked at the W.P.A. I would add, have you refused your Medicare insurance or returned your Social Security payments? This is what I do not understand about the Right. X percentage of our fellow citizens, for any number of legitimate reasons, cannot sustain themselves on their own. This includes children, elderly, sick, disabled veterans and the mentally challenged. If X is 10 percent, that, at a minimum, is 31 million Americans. That is equivalent to the entire state populations of New York and Pennsylvania. What exactly, as a nation, do we collectively do to address that challenge? As important, what do we intelligently try (public policy) to actually reduce the percentage? RR eect Jepson is a 27-year resident of CC entral Florida.
