A garden at the far south side of Winter Parks Central Park holds a variety of roses in a hexagonal planter with rows of benches nearby an escape from the bustling outside world. Its been the site of small weddings as the pathways lined with Sum mer Snow, Razzle Dazzle and Kentucky Derby roses lead to an archway of wooden beams held up by red brick pillars. But the quiet garden along Park Avenue holds a different value to Winter Park residents Martin and Pamela Buckley. The rose bushes and brick pathways kindle fond memories of count less Saturday afternoons, when their three daughters played tag and sipped lemonade in the garden after a trip to the nearby farmers market years ago. Today, the distant memories and mental photographs of their middle child have never been more cherished. Theyre some of the most trea sured intangibles left behind by their beloved daughter, Eliza beth. A 13-year-old girls spirit will live on in Winter Parks Central Park if an old friends endeavor succeeds: placing a peacock foun tain at the center of the parks tranquil rose garden allowing her memory to bloom and never fade away. Its all a project headed by 15-year-old Life Scout and Bish op Moore Catholic High School soon-to-be sophomore John Mi chael Thomas, who lost a dear friend and classmate in Decem ber 2012 when Elizabeth passed away of an inoperable brain tu mor.

On April 28 John Michael brought a proposal for the foun tain before the members of the Winter Park City Commission, who eagerly showed their sup port for the project. A wonderful friend and an awesome gift for the city, City Commissioner Carolyn Cooper said.

The college took the number one spot out of 128 regional schools in the southern U.S. for nine consecu tive years. International student enroll ment reached new heights as it climbed by 72 percent during Duncans tenure, which also in cluded the renovation of the col leges science center and tripling Rollins endowment and capital assets to almost $430 million. President Duncan has been a strong leader for Rollins over the last decade, making substan tial contributions and laying the foundation for our continued success, said Rollins College Board of Trustees Chairman David Lord in the statement from Rollins College. As a result, we current strategic direction. But questions over Duncans leadership ability might have pushed him to resign.

Because there are numerous handicapped park visitors who bring their companion dogs for exercise, the city of Winter Park added a handicapped entrance into the park, which includes a trail to enable someone in a wheelchair to access one of the large covered pavilions. New handicapped ac cessible bathrooms have also been added on the south side of the off-leash area of the park. There is also a new dog wash ing station attached to the rear of the new bathrooms. And, the latest addition to the park is a large, grassy, shaded area, which has been fenced for the benet of small dogs and their owners. After some informal polling, members of the Friends of Fleet Peeples group learned that there was great interest in the creation of an area dedicated for small dogs. This has just been completed, and the entrance is lo cated at the handicapped entrance, right off the parking lot. The small dog area will soon be equipped with park benches for the dogs owners.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, May 29, 2014 | Page 5 Maitland City Talk BY HOWARD SCHIEFERDECKER MAYOR The Maitland Stormwater and Lakes Management Division fre quently gives presentations to school children explaining how positively impact their environ ment, but often times the most is that everything we do is con nected. Similarly, Floridians do not automatically deduce that even the smallest actions they take can have serious implications downstream. Though only a small percentage of parcels in Maitland are considered lakefront, every single property is somehow con nected to a water body, and the pollution we generate will inevi To properly understand these connections, you must go back in time to the beginning of storm water control. Initially, stormwa nuisance, and the most effective method of control was to direct stormwater away from a home/ roadway as quickly as possible. downhill, the most logical termi nal point is a low spot, which in Florida typically means a lake. While initially effective, as de cades passed regulators began to realize that water quality was not only impacted by visually obvious polluters like factories, but also by nonpoint source pol source pollution as coming from many diffuse sources caused by rainfall moving over and through the ground. This means any ma terial or chemical that is applied to your property and carried to a roadway or water body via storm water. While the city has begun to capture untreated stormwater be fore it reaches a lake, there is still a very long way for all of us to go. So, what can you do to ensure that your property is not a source of pollution? There are a few very simple behaviors that can have an exponential effect to improve both your local environment, and those downstream. Properly dispose of leaf litter and yard debris. Not only is blow ing yard debris into the street a vi olation of city code that creates an immediate eyesore, but it is also a primary source of nutrient pollu tion in our surface waters. Pick up after your pet. Pet waste that washes into city streets is a human health hazard that contributes to downstream nutri ent and bacterial pollution. Wash your car in the yard, not the driveway. Oil, chemicals, and debris from your vehicle are easily transported from a drive way to the road, and even organic detergents are a source of nutrient pollution. Apply fertilizer only as need ed in compliance with the regula tions of Orange County. Phospho rous-free fertilizer is mandatory in most cases, and a product must contain a minimum of 50 percent slow-release nitrogen. Properly dispose of paint, chemicals, and other hazardous lets and drains are not a location to rid yourself of chemical waste. Always remember that storm drains eventually drain to a lake, not a wastewater treatment facil ity.

Thats where John Michaels project comes in. The Eagle Scout hopeful has already begun a fun draising effort to get the fountain to Winter Park. He plans to put on carwashes and bake sales through Bishop Moore while hosting wine and cheese events at residential homes to pitch his project, accept ing any community donations as well. He managed to raise $3,200 draising before hosting a single event. The statue of the majestic bird tribute, said Elizabeths mother, Pamela. If the eighth grader at St. Margaret Mary ever had a trade mark symbol, it would likely have been the bird bearing the fanshaped, colored tail feathers. Elizabeth had loved peacocks for as far back as her father Martin could remember, keeping stuffed animal peacocks on her bed as a young child. Drawings of peacocks with col ored pencil covered her bedroom an easel on her balcony sported a painted peacock feather with the words love life written below. Her artistry and love for Win ter Parks signature bird was even on display at the Winter in the Park ice skating event in her fourth grade year: a painted pea cock wearing a Santa Claus hat on display by the rink. She would love it, said Pa mela, gazing at a photograph of the fountain that would embody her daughters memory and sprit. [John Michael] set his mind to do it, so I know hell do it.

An MRI revealed the inoperable tumor in her brain a type that doctors see only 200 cases of each year in the U.S., Pamela said. An outpouring of support came from the community as Eliz abeths love for peacocks became the focus of many gifts, including peacock umbrellas, jewelry, rain boots, blankets and a glass vase her classmates. Elizabeths love for the colorful birds and art could only be rivaled by her passion for lacrosse, which her two sisters played as well. She picked up the sport in second grade, playing on local club teams like the Orange Crush up until her eighth grade year. Elizabeth showed her intense also being a graceful winner and loser, Martin said. She was an all too rare mix of spunk and grace, he said. She was a very kind person. She did lift you up I think her sisters miss her a great deal, be cause she was so supportive.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, May 29, 2014 | Page 7 mor. Elizabeth had begun to lose her motor skills because of the tu mors increasing size. But that didnt stop her from enjoying the sport she loved one last time. Three months after her of the spring season. A soft rugby helmet protected her skull as she registered a hand ful of shots on goal her team mates passing the ball to her la crosse stick every chance they got. Elizabeths few minutes on the ing time she got that season, but the moment couldnt have been more special for the Buckley fam ily, Martin said. The recovery from that sur gery was very challenging for her, but she so loved lacrosse that she was able to come back and play, Martin said. She lost her step and wasnt as fast, but she got out there and played that was pretty special realistically we knew her health would not allow her to play ever again. The Buckley family contin ued to receive an outpouring of support from the community as Elizabeth pressed on through her condition. On the night of the eighth grade dance at St. Margret Mary, it was John Michaels turn to show his support for Elizabeth. The Winter Park Boy Scout already knew just what to do before the dance, said his mother Valorie. I ironed his shirt like a good mom and I said, I need to talk you before you leave, Valorie said. He said, Dont worry, Im go ing to dance with Elizabeth. That night the two of them shared a dance, unaware of the campaign John Michael would later spearhead in Elizabeths name.

Its very important to me, said Pamela as her voice quiv ered, because I know that its a place where shell be remembered for years and years and years. Martin and Pamela hope to see the memories of their daughter take shape and substance, materi alizing into a fountain their family can visit for generations.

Page 8 | Thursday, May 29, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer Cora Boyett Evans had one wish for her birthday. She wanted a slice of cake made from her mothers beloved 1,2,3,4 Cake recipe, complete with boiled icing. Wanting to do everything within their power to please the beloved matriarch, her family found the long-cherished recipe and managed to re-create it for Evans big day. After all, its not every day that a lady like Ms. Evans turns 100. A long-time Winter Park resident, Ev ans was known until very recently for hosting gracious afternoon teas in her home, so it was only appropriate that she should celebrate with one for such a mo mentous occasion. The party, held at the iconic Casa Fe liz, drew friends, family and well-wishers from all over the state, some traveling from as far away as Tallahassee. Evans was born April 23, 1914 on Terre Ceia Island, just off Tampa Bay. At the time, the island was a rustic farming com munity with no electricity. game was being played at Weeghman Field, later known as Wrigley Field. Evans was keen to point out during her party that she also shares a birthday with William Shakespeare. Although, Im much younger than him, she said. Evans grew up on the island, but left as a young woman to attend Florida State Womens College (which was later inte family who believed that education was very important. She graduated in 1935 with a bachelors degree in Home Economics, an interest she is still passionate about today. According to one of her caretakers, Lorie Green, Evans loves to watch cooking shows on TV, especially the cooking competition, Chopped on the Food Network. In 1936, she married Ross Evans at her fathers home in Terre Ceia and the young cou ple enjoyed many adventures while traveling before settling in Winter Park in 1949, where Mr. Evans took a job as an economics professor at Rol lins College. Cora taught home eco nomics for many years at Winter Park High School. Rollins College Board of Trustees members Allan Keen and Bill Bieberbach, both for mer students of Mr. Evans, were on hand at the tea party to read a proclamation honor ing Evans and thanking her for the years of service she and her husband provided to the school. In order to provide the gift of education to other deserving students, the Evanses established scholarship funds at Florida State, the University of Florida and Rollins College, all schools that played a large part in their own lives. Today there are eight students attend ing the Crummer Graduate School of Busi ness at Rollins on Evans Scholarships. Garrett Flick is one of those students.

Page 10 | Thursday, May 29, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer On Saturday, May 17 the Pet Alli ance of Greater Orlando (formerly SPCA of Central Florida) held its inaugural Run for Rescues a timed 5K race and a one-mile dog jog. It was a big success, raising almost $30,000 for the organi zation. When WFTV Chan nel 9 evening news anchor and avid runner Vanessa Welch learned about the event in early February, she knew she wanted to participate in the dog jog. The problem was her beloved 4-year-old chocolate lab Baylor was a good 10 pounds overweight, out of shape and most likely jog. Thats when Vanessas friend and colleague told her about us: Barking Dog Fitness a gym for dogs that offers weight loss boot camps among other things. Vanessa decided to give us a try. When she brought Baylor in for an evalua tion, she learned of the huge problem of canine obesity and its related health issues. A great idea for a news series was born Baylors Boot Camp. Beginning Feb. 11, this 12-week series aired every other Tuesday during the noon newscast, spotlight ing the growing problem of canine obesity and followed Baylors journey through his weight loss boot camp. The series focused on all aspects of canine obesity, from how most people dont realize their dogs are fat to the myriad of health problems that can result from being overweight. The series talked about proper exercise, nutrition, feeding amounts and more, following Baylors progress as he lost weight and got into shape. For 12 weeks Baylor at tended our boot camp twice a week, working out in the indoor warm water pool, on treadmills, doing Pilates and playing with the other dogs. He went home each night one tired pup! A couple of weeks before the race, Vanessa started run ning with Baylor to make sure he could do the run. On race day, Baylors transformation was nothing short of amazing. He had lost 10 pounds and eight inches off his waist. He go Vanessa and Baylor! Were proud of you!

Without their generosity, Crummer would not have been possible for me. I was thrilled to be accepted for it and thrilled to be here today to celebrate with such a great lady, Flick said. Next year will mark the 40th anniversary of the Evans Scholar ship at Rollins. For 14 years, Evans has been cared for at home by a round-theclock team of dedicated ladies, who are not just caregivers, but trusted friends. I dont even know what Id do without my girls, Evans said. Three of the ladies represent three generations of the Green family, mother, daughter and granddaughter. Each take turns caring for Evans. In fact, Evans credits her long life to her ability to live at home in comfort, thanks to the care these ladies provide. Lorie Green recalled Evans love of storytelling: Shes al ways telling me stories, some times about growing up on Terre Ceia, sometimes about her trav els, she always has something in teresting to say, but by now Ive heard most of them, she said with a smile. Greens favorite story of Ev ans is from when she was about 80 years old and wanted to buy a new car. As Green tells it, Cora wanted a new car and her hus band disagreed, claiming theyd probably not live to pay it off, let alone enjoy it. In the end, Cora got her car and as she said, I showed him, and outlived them both! Evans also has a fondness for the neighborhood children who like to play in her front yard. Once, a neighbor said, the kids went to Evans and asked if they could pick the oranges from her tree. She agreed and a short while later she was presented with an offer she couldnt refuse. The or ange pickers showed up at her door with buckets of oranges for sale, 25 cents asking if Ms. Evans would like to buy some. She gra ciously bought back her own or anges, never saying a word to the ambitious little entrepreneurs. (They had to give the money back when their mom found out.) Thats how she is though, the neighbor said, always looking out for the kids and indulging them whenever she gets a chance. C ONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Although the Evanses never had any biological children, they did adopt a son, Howard Evans, who sat by his mothers side, at tending to her every need during the party. Also in attendance was Evans longtime hairdresser Pat Priddy, owner of New Beginnings Salon. Ms. Evans has been coming to me for 40 years, Priddy said. She is quite a lady. Priddy did Evans hair the morning of the party and said Evans was a little taken aback at having reached such a milestone. Am I really 100 today? she said. How did I get to 100? Well, I guess I already be there, she joked with Priddy. She remembers so many things, Priddy said And shes always very caring, always con cerned about everyone but her self. On her big day, Evans was eager to invite her young grand nieces over for a visit. Grand niece and grand neph ew Tori and Clay Boyett drove all the way from Tallahassee to bring their daughters, Ramsay and Makenna to meet the centenarian and join in the celebration. After posing for photos in cluding four generations of the Boyett-Evans clan, Cora gath ered in her young great grand nieces, whispering, You should come see me sometime, I have a nice big upstairs that no one ever stays in and you can play all you want in the yard. Ever the hostess, Evans stayed until nearly every guest was gone, personally greeting each one and thanking them for com ing. ADVERTORIAL

Page 14 | Thursday, May 29, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer Opinions Chris Jepson Perspectives I write this on a Memorial Day, a day of not-so-sweet-remembrance, and am reminded that not all deaths are equal. The last American war (and only 20th century ed in was WWII; the evil was clear-cut, our choices equally unambiguous. America is not well served by its leader ship, by Republicans as well as Democrats. Right now there is a folderol over the Veterans Administration and its treatment (or lack thereof) of Americas servicemen and women. The appropriate ques tions, to me, are seldom asked. The VA has been chug ging along, dealing with mostly aging Vietnam-era veterans. Abruptly, thousands of wounded and damaged servicemen from the Iraq and Afghanistan maladies and mental health (PTSD) issues. Not surprisingly, the VA, unprepared, failed its mission. Heres a recap of the dead and wound ed from Vietnam (58,209 dead, 153,303 wounded), Iraq (4,488 dead, 32,222 wound ed) and Afghanistan (2,229 dead, 18,675 wounded). Three wars of choice with tens of thousands dead and more than 100,000 wounded. But that is merely the tip of the iceberg. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly one in four of the 2.4 mil lion veterans who served in Iraq and Af ghanistan, some 633,000 men and women, have a service-related disability. The num bers of Vietnam veterans with disabilities is staggering, by some estimates 1,015,410 are receiving compensation today. The true costs of war are seldom calcu lated with veracity in mind. Our political leaders, in the name of national security, None of these wars that America, by choice, entered warranted the death of one American. We have presidents on tape (see: Lyndon Johnson) commenting on the futil ity (hopelessness) of the Vietnam War. We know, unequivocally, that the George W. Bush administration immorally ginned the reasons for the Iraq War. What should have been a surgical strike or short-term offen sive to kill Osama Bin Laden in Afghani stan deteriorated into a long, meaningless By some estimates, the Iraq and choice) will end up costing the United States over $3 trillion. By 2050, when the veterans of these wars are middle-aged, medical costs will skyrocket. It wont be some patriotic commemorating the unfor made propping-up Middle Eastern despots, no, it will be the sky-rocketing explo sions of red-ink funding overwhelming the VA and America by 2050. Imagine if America had had enough wisdom to resist the tar baby of Vietnam, had not checked-its-collective-brains at the door and stayed out of Iraq and Afghani stan? We would not today be having this conversation about an under-performing, inadequate Veterans Administration. Oh, I can hear the umbrage now. Jepson, youre behalf of America. No, these men made choices (serving in illegitimate, ill-con ceived wars) that I did not make (or have to make). That is not the issue to me. Its one thing to take orders, its quite another to be giving them. We elect men (essentially) who are historically illiterate and gullible. Too many are susceptible to jingoistic nonsense or they lack the backbone to call a spade none of our damn business). Want to really stay the hell out of war. It will save both lives and money.

Human beings are always in some state of mind or another and tend to assume that everyone they talk to is in the same state that they are at the same time. Of course, that assumption comes from the way that people are and not from the truth: that individuals are all different, even though they are all members of the same human race. As I travel down the brick streets of Winter Park in 2014 my mind becomes Einsteinian for a moment, and my thinking process goes back 75 years to the time when I was pedaling my bike over those same bricks and had never been anywhere on this Earth to speak of.

A garden at the far south side of Winter Parks Central Park holds a variety of roses in a hexagonal planter with rows of benches nearby an escape from the bustling outside world. Its been the site of small weddings as the pathways lined with Sum mer Snow, Razzle Dazzle and Kentucky Derby roses lead to an archway of wooden beams held up by red brick pillars. But the quiet garden along Park Avenue holds a different value to Winter Park residents Martin and Pamela Buckley. The rose bushes and brick pathways kindle fond memories of count less Saturday afternoons, when their three daughters played tag and sipped lemonade in the garden after a trip to the nearby farmers market years ago. Today, the distant memories and mental photographs of their middle child have never been more cherished. Theyre some of the most trea sured intangibles left behind by their beloved daughter, Elizabeth. A 13-year-old girls spirit will live on in Winter Parks Central Park if an old friends endeavor succeeds: placing a peacock foun tain at the center of the parks tranquil rose garden allowing her memory to bloom and never fade away. Its all a project headed by 15-year-old Life Scout and Bish op Moore Catholic High School soon-to-be sophomore John Michael Thomas, who lost a dear friend and classmate in Decem ber 2012 when Elizabeth passed away of an inoperable brain tu mor. When John Michael needed in his ongoing pursuit of becom ing an Eagle Scout he couldnt think of a better task than a trib ute to the girl hed known since kindergarten at St. Margaret Mary Catholic School. Its someone whos been in your class your whole life, John Michael said. It kind of struck me at such a young age about the value of life and how important she was. On April 28 John Michael brought a proposal for the fountain before the members of the Winter Park City Commission, who eagerly showed their sup port for the project. A wonderful friend and an awesome gift for the city, City Commissioner Carolyn Cooper said. Its great to have young people in front of us doing wonder ful things, City Commissioner Sarah Sprinkel said. It makes you realize that the world will go on. The 7-foot, bronze fountain depicts a large peacock atop a pil from a bowl platform and down the birds long tail feathers.

Faculty from the College of Arts and Sciences voted to cen sure Duncan as well in September 2011, claiming he showed disrespect by establishing the College of Professional Studies without There had been this continuing struggle with Arts and Sciences faculty, Lauer told the Orlando Sentinel.

The board of and censure votes, he said. Six to seven years is aver age for a college president, so [Duncan] feels that hes left us in a healthy position and he can feel comfortable moving on to the next phase of his life, Hope said. The board will set up transitional leadership in the meantime and appoint an interim president in June. The board is committed to a thoughtful and constructive search for the next president of Rollins, Lord said in his state ment. Our intention is to work transparently and collaboratively with representatives of the fac ulty, staff, students, and alumni to establish a search committee charged with identifying candi dates for the position.

Because there are numerous handicapped park visitors who bring their companion dogs for exercise, the city of Winter Park added a handicapped entrance into the park, which includes a trail to enable someone in a wheelchair to access one of the large covered pavilions. New handicapped ac cessible bathrooms have also been added on the south side of the off-leash area of the park. There is also a new dog wash ing station attached to the rear of the new bathrooms. And, the latest addition to the park is a large, grassy, shaded area, which has been fenced for the benet of small dogs and their owners. After some informal polling, members of the Friends of Fleet Peeples group learned that there was great interest in the creation of an area dedicated for small dogs. This has just been completed, and the entrance is located at the handicapped entrance, right off the parking lot. The small dog area will soon be equipped with park benches for the dogs owners.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, May 29, 2014 | Page 5 Maitland City TalkBY HOWARD SCHIEFERDECKER MAYOR The Maitland Stormwater and Lakes Management Division frequently gives presentations to school children explaining how positively impact their environ ment, but often times the most is that everything we do is con nected. Similarly, Floridians do not automatically deduce that even the smallest actions they take can have serious implications downstream. Though only a small percentage of parcels in Maitland are considered lakefront, every single property is somehow con nected to a water body, and the pollution we generate will inevi To properly understand these connections, you must go back in time to the beginning of storm water control. Initially, stormwa nuisance, and the most effective method of control was to direct stormwater away from a home/ roadway as quickly as possible. downhill, the most logical termi nal point is a low spot, which in Florida typically means a lake. While initially effective, as de cades passed regulators began to realize that water quality was not only impacted by visually obvious polluters like factories, but also by nonpoint source pol source pollution as coming from many diffuse sources caused by rainfall moving over and through the ground. This means any ma terial or chemical that is applied to your property and carried to a roadway or water body via storm water. While the city has begun to capture untreated stormwater be fore it reaches a lake, there is still a very long way for all of us to go. So, what can you do to ensure that your property is not a source of pollution? There are a few very simple behaviors that can have an exponential effect to improve both your local environment, and those downstream. Properly dispose of leaf litter and yard debris. Not only is blow ing yard debris into the street a vi olation of city code that creates an immediate eyesore, but it is also a primary source of nutrient pollu tion in our surface waters. Pick up after your pet. Pet waste that washes into city streets is a human health hazard that contributes to downstream nutri ent and bacterial pollution. Wash your car in the yard, not the driveway. Oil, chemicals, and debris from your vehicle are easily transported from a drive way to the road, and even organic detergents are a source of nutrient pollution. Apply fertilizer only as needed in compliance with the regula tions of Orange County. Phospho rous-free fertilizer is mandatory in most cases, and a product must contain a minimum of 50 percent slow-release nitrogen. Properly dispose of paint, chemicals, and other hazardous lets and drains are not a location to rid yourself of chemical waste. Always remember that storm drains eventually drain to a lake, not a wastewater treatment facil ity.

Thats where John Michaels project comes in. The Eagle Scout hopeful has already begun a fun draising effort to get the fountain to Winter Park. He plans to put on carwashes and bake sales through Bishop Moore while hosting wine and cheese events at residential homes to pitch his project, accept ing any community donations as well. He managed to raise $3,200 draising before hosting a single event. The statue of the majestic bird tribute, said Elizabeths mother, Pamela. If the eighth grader at St. Margaret Mary ever had a trade mark symbol, it would likely have been the bird bearing the fanshaped, colored tail feathers. Elizabeth had loved peacocks for as far back as her father Martin could remember, keeping stuffed animal peacocks on her bed as a young child. Drawings of peacocks with colored pencil covered her bedroom an easel on her balcony sported a painted peacock feather with the words love life written below. Her artistry and love for Win ter Parks signature bird was even on display at the Winter in the Park ice skating event in her fourth grade year: a painted pea cock wearing a Santa Claus hat on display by the rink. She would love it, said Pamela, gazing at a photograph of the fountain that would embody her daughters memory and sprit. [John Michael] set his mind to do it, so I know hell do it. Were behind him 100 percent. faced in December 2011 when she started feeling pains in her neck. An MRI revealed the inoperable tumor in her brain a type that doctors see only 200 cases of each year in the U.S., Pamela said. An outpouring of support came from the community as Eliz abeths love for peacocks became the focus of many gifts, including peacock umbrellas, jewelry, rain boots, blankets and a glass vase her classmates. Elizabeths love for the colorful birds and art could only be rivaled by her passion for lacrosse, which her two sisters played as well. She picked up the sport in second grade, playing on local club teams like the Orange Crush up until her eighth grade year. Elizabeth showed her intense also being a graceful winner and loser, Martin said. She was an all too rare mix of spunk and grace, he said. She was a very kind person. She did lift you up I think her sisters miss her a great deal, be cause she was so supportive.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, May 29, 2014 | Page 7 mor. Elizabeth had begun to lose her motor skills because of the tu mors increasing size. But that didnt stop her from enjoying the sport she loved one last time. Three months after her of the spring season. A soft rugby helmet protected her skull as she registered a hand ful of shots on goal her team mates passing the ball to her la crosse stick every chance they got. Elizabeths few minutes on the ing time she got that season, but the moment couldnt have been more special for the Buckley family, Martin said. The recovery from that sur gery was very challenging for her, but she so loved lacrosse that she was able to come back and play, Martin said. She lost her step and wasnt as fast, but she got out there and played that was pretty special realistically we knew her health would not allow her to play ever again. The Buckley family continued to receive an outpouring of support from the community as Elizabeth pressed on through her condition. On the night of the eighth grade dance at St. Margret Mary, it was John Michaels turn to show his support for Elizabeth. The Winter Park Boy Scout already knew just what to do before the dance, said his mother Valorie. I ironed his shirt like a good mom and I said, I need to talk you before you leave, Valorie said. He said, Dont worry, Im go ing to dance with Elizabeth. That night the two of them shared a dance, unaware of the campaign John Michael would later spearhead in Elizabeths name. Unaware of what might come next, completely absorbed in the moment, the two moved to the music. Elizabeths battle ended just as 2012 came to a close. She passed away New Years Eve of that year. John Michael said he plans to host a dedication ceremony for Elizabeth once the fountain is have it placed in the Central Park rose garden by this fall. Its immensely gratifying to us as a family that not only is she still remembered, but shes remembered so fondly that she would serve a catalyst to what is a really amazing project, Martin said. A signature fountain by a world-renowned sculptor in Central Park a place that she loved that everyone can enjoy. Its very important to me, said Pamela as her voice quiv ered, because I know that its a place where shell be remembered for years and years and years. Martin and Pamela hope to see the memories of their daughter take shape and substance, materializing into a fountain their family can visit for generations. Elizabeth would spend hours playing in that park, Pamela said. With her memory preserved in glimmering bronze, Elizabeths spirit would never have to leave.

Page 8 | Thursday, May 29, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer Cora Boyett Evans had one wish for her birthday. She wanted a slice of cake made from her mothers beloved 1,2,3,4 Cake recipe, complete with boiled icing. Wanting to do everything within their power to please the beloved matriarch, her family found the long-cherished recipe and managed to re-create it for Evans big day. After all, its not every day that a lady like Ms. Evans turns 100. A long-time Winter Park resident, Evans was known until very recently for hosting gracious afternoon teas in her home, so it was only appropriate that she should celebrate with one for such a mo mentous occasion. The party, held at the iconic Casa Feliz, drew friends, family and well-wishers from all over the state, some traveling from as far away as Tallahassee. Evans was born April 23, 1914 on Terre Ceia Island, just off Tampa Bay. At the time, the island was a rustic farming com munity with no electricity. game was being played at Weeghman Field, later known as Wrigley Field. Evans was keen to point out during her party that she also shares a birthday with William Shakespeare. Although, Im much younger than him, she said. Evans grew up on the island, but left as a young woman to attend Florida State Womens College (which was later inte family who believed that education was very important. She graduated in 1935 with a bachelors degree in Home Economics, an interest she is still passionate about today. According to one of her caretakers, Lorie Green, Evans loves to watch cooking shows on TV, especially the cooking competition, Chopped on the Food Network. In 1936, she married Ross Evans at her fathers home in Terre Ceia and the young cou ple enjoyed many adventures while traveling before settling in Winter Park in 1949, where Mr. Evans took a job as an economics professor at Rollins College. Cora taught home eco nomics for many years at Winter Park High School. Rollins College Board of Trustees members Allan Keen and Bill Bieberbach, both for mer students of Mr. Evans, were on hand at the tea party to read a proclamation honor ing Evans and thanking her for the years of service she and her husband provided to the school. In order to provide the gift of education to other deserving students, the Evanses established scholarship funds at Florida State, the University of Florida and Rollins College, all schools that played a large part in their own lives. Today there are eight students attend ing the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins on Evans Scholarships. Garrett Flick is one of those students.

Page 10 | Thursday, May 29, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer On Saturday, May 17 the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando (formerly SPCA of Central Florida) held its inaugural Run for Rescues a timed 5K race and a one-mile dog jog. It was a big success, raising almost $30,000 for the organi zation. When WFTV Channel 9 evening news anchor and avid runner Vanessa Welch learned about the event in early February, she knew she wanted to participate in the dog jog. The problem was her beloved 4-year-old chocolate lab Baylor was a good 10 pounds overweight, out of shape and most likely jog. Thats when Vanessas friend and colleague told her about us: Barking Dog Fitness a gym for dogs that offers weight loss boot camps among other things. Vanessa decided to give us a try. When she brought Baylor in for an evaluation, she learned of the huge problem of canine obesity and its related health issues. A great idea for a news series was born Baylors Boot Camp. Beginning Feb. 11, this 12-week series aired every other Tuesday during the noon newscast, spotlighting the growing problem of canine obesity and followed Baylors journey through his weight loss boot camp. The series focused on all aspects of canine obesity, from how most people dont realize their dogs are fat to the myriad of health problems that can result from being overweight. The series talked about proper exercise, nutrition, feeding amounts and more, following Baylors progress as he lost weight and got into shape. For 12 weeks Baylor attended our boot camp twice a week, working out in the indoor warm water pool, on treadmills, doing Pilates and playing with the other dogs. He went home each night one tired pup! A couple of weeks before the race, Vanessa started running with Baylor to make sure he could do the run. On race day, Baylors transformation was nothing short of amazing. He had lost 10 pounds and eight inches off his waist. He go Vanessa and Baylor! Were proud of you!Sherri Cappabianca, an expert in the eld of canine health and tness, is the author of two books on canine health, and the co-owner of Rockys Retreat Canine Health & Fitness Center, and Barking Dog Fitness, a Gym for Dogs, both located in Orlando.

Without their generosity, Crummer would not have been possible for me. I was thrilled to be accepted for it and thrilled to be here today to celebrate with such a great lady, Flick said. Next year will mark the 40th anniversary of the Evans Scholar ship at Rollins. For 14 years, Evans has been cared for at home by a round-theclock team of dedicated ladies, who are not just caregivers, but trusted friends. I dont even know what Id do without my girls, Evans said. Three of the ladies represent three generations of the Green family, mother, daughter and granddaughter. Each take turns caring for Evans. In fact, Evans credits her long life to her ability to live at home in comfort, thanks to the care these ladies provide. Lorie Green recalled Evans love of storytelling: Shes always telling me stories, some times about growing up on Terre Ceia, sometimes about her trav els, she always has something interesting to say, but by now Ive heard most of them, she said with a smile. Greens favorite story of Ev ans is from when she was about 80 years old and wanted to buy a new car. As Green tells it, Cora wanted a new car and her husband disagreed, claiming theyd probably not live to pay it off, let alone enjoy it. In the end, Cora got her car and as she said, I showed him, and outlived them both! Evans also has a fondness for the neighborhood children who like to play in her front yard. Once, a neighbor said, the kids went to Evans and asked if they could pick the oranges from her tree. She agreed and a short while later she was presented with an offer she couldnt refuse. The or ange pickers showed up at her door with buckets of oranges for sale, 25 cents asking if Ms. Evans would like to buy some. She gra ciously bought back her own or anges, never saying a word to the ambitious little entrepreneurs. (They had to give the money back when their mom found out.) Thats how she is though, the neighbor said, always looking out for the kids and indulging them whenever she gets a chance. CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Although the Evanses never had any biological children, they did adopt a son, Howard Evans, who sat by his mothers side, at tending to her every need during the party. Also in attendance was Evans longtime hairdresser Pat Priddy, owner of New Beginnings Salon. Ms. Evans has been coming to me for 40 years, Priddy said. She is quite a lady. Priddy did Evans hair the morning of the party and said Evans was a little taken aback at having reached such a milestone. Am I really 100 today? she said. How did I get to 100? Well, I guess I already be there, she joked with Priddy. She remembers so many things, Priddy said And shes always very caring, always con cerned about everyone but her self. On her big day, Evans was eager to invite her young grand nieces over for a visit. Grand niece and grand neph ew Tori and Clay Boyett drove all the way from Tallahassee to bring their daughters, Ramsay and Makenna to meet the centenarian and join in the celebration. After posing for photos in cluding four generations of the Boyett-Evans clan, Cora gath ered in her young great grand nieces, whispering, You should come see me sometime, I have a nice big upstairs that no one ever stays in and you can play all you want in the yard. Ever the hostess, Evans stayed until nearly every guest was gone, personally greeting each one and thanking them for com ing. ADVERTORIAL

Page 14 | Thursday, May 29, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer Opinions Chris Jepson PerspectivesI write this on a Memorial Day, a day of not-so-sweet-remembrance, and am reminded that not all deaths are equal. The last American war (and only 20th century ed in was WWII; the evil was clear-cut, our choices equally unambiguous. America is not well served by its leader ship, by Republicans as well as Democrats. Right now there is a folderol over the Veterans Administration and its treatment (or lack thereof) of Americas servicemen and women. The appropriate questions, to me, are seldom asked. The VA has been chugging along, dealing with mostly aging Vietnam-era veterans. Abruptly, thousands of wounded and damaged servicemen from the Iraq and Afghanistan maladies and mental health (PTSD) issues. Not surprisingly, the VA, unprepared, failed its mission. Heres a recap of the dead and wounded from Vietnam (58,209 dead, 153,303 wounded), Iraq (4,488 dead, 32,222 wound ed) and Afghanistan (2,229 dead, 18,675 wounded). Three wars of choice with tens of thousands dead and more than 100,000 wounded. But that is merely the tip of the iceberg. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly one in four of the 2.4 million veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, some 633,000 men and women, have a service-related disability. The numbers of Vietnam veterans with disabilities is staggering, by some estimates 1,015,410 are receiving compensation today. The true costs of war are seldom calcu lated with veracity in mind. Our political leaders, in the name of national security, None of these wars that America, by choice, entered warranted the death of one American. We have presidents on tape (see: Lyndon Johnson) commenting on the futility (hopelessness) of the Vietnam War. We know, unequivocally, that the George W. Bush administration immorally ginned the reasons for the Iraq War. What should have been a surgical strike or short-term offen sive to kill Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan deteriorated into a long, meaningless By some estimates, the Iraq and choice) will end up costing the United States over $3 trillion. By 2050, when the veterans of these wars are middle-aged, medical costs will skyrocket. It wont be some patriotic commemorating the unfor made propping-up Middle Eastern despots, no, it will be the sky-rocketing explo sions of red-ink funding overwhelming the VA and America by 2050. Imagine if America had had enough wisdom to resist the tar baby of Vietnam, had not checked-its-collective-brains at the door and stayed out of Iraq and Afghanistan? We would not today be having this conversation about an under-performing, inadequate Veterans Administration. Oh, I can hear the umbrage now. Jepson, youre behalf of America. No, these men made choices (serving in illegitimate, ill-conceived wars) that I did not make (or have to make). That is not the issue to me. Its one thing to take orders, its quite another to be giving them. We elect men (essentially) who are historically illiterate and gullible. Too many are susceptible to jingoistic nonsense or they lack the backbone to call a spade none of our damn business). Want to really stay the hell out of war. It will save both lives and money.

Human beings are always in some state of mind or another and tend to assume that everyone they talk to is in the same state that they are at the same time. Of course, that assumption comes from the way that people are and not from the truth: that individuals are all different, even though they are all members of the same human race. As I travel down the brick streets of Winter Park in 2014 my mind becomes Einsteinian for a moment, and my thinking process goes back 75 years to the time when I was pedaling my bike over those same bricks and had never been anywhere on this Earth to speak of. Many material things have remained the same throughout the last three generations, but times fourth dimension is the one we now live in and is the scenery of the present day life we are leading. white, and blue, wrote George M.

Then we sang America and only then was the day underway. During the four years I was in the Navy in WWII, the stars and stripes played a big part in our daily life.

Shes still as sweet to me as the day we got married. Before you guffaw that its no bed of roses for a wife to be married to an exoperatic tenor and ex-college prof who has such bad eyes that his steak has to be cut up for him, and he must be driven everywhere, let me remind you that I told you women are crazy ...

Einstein is dead, a fact that seems incongruous as he was the smartest man in the world, and should have been able to outwit death.
