WPMOBSERVER.COM The tellers at TD Bank expect ed another normal transaction when the stranger in sunglasses stepped up to the counter on Sat nal customers of the day; theyd be closing down in less than 20 minutes when the clock struck 3 p.m. But instead of a deposit slip the silent man handed over a handwritten note. A note de manding money and threaten ing that he carried a weapon. Winter Park Police are in search of a bank robber on the run who quietly hit the TD Bank at Orange Avenue and Denning Drive at 2:41 p.m. on Saturday, July 5. The suspect walked away with an undisclosed amount of cash. Surveillance footage showed the suspect as a light-skinned male with a goatee wearing sun glasses, a black button down shirt and a beige baseball cap. USPS 00-6186 Publisher statement on page 4.

Five women have reported being molested from as early as age 4 by late swimming instruc Fleet Peeples Sr., according to the Orlando Sentinel. The recent allegations have already prompted the city to take action. City Manager Randy Knight released a statement on Monday that the City Commis sion will look at renaming Fleet Peeples Park a dog-friendly green space by Lake Baldwin to its original name of Lake Baldwin Park. While the city cannot prove or disprove the allegations con tained in the Orlando Sentinel article, because of the number of people that have come forward and because of the severity of their claims, city staff believes the community is best served by re turning the park back to its origi nal name, the statement read. The alleged incidents took place during the early s, mids and mid-s, according to the Orlando Sentinel. New York resident and freelance writer Katherine Sanderlin, 42, grew up in Orlando and took swim ming lessons from Peeples Sr. as a young girl. Sanderlin recalls learning how to swim, but also a camping trip with the longtime swimming in structor that brings back painful memories. I was wearing a nightgown and he just reached his hand up my nightgown and he felt I was wearing underwear, Sanderlin said. He said Little girls dont wear panties to bed. I took them off and I just re member his hands doing some kind of action on the lower half of my body. The reports from Sanderlin and four other women came af ter the arrest of Peeples Sr.s son, Fleetwood Peeples Jr., in Febru ary over child molestation and pornography charges. He report edly admitted to molesting as many as a dozen boys while serv ing as a Cub Scout and Boy Scout leader in the 1980s. The younger Peeples is cur rently in the Orange County Jail with a bail set at $12,500. It came as a relief to hear oth er women speak out after going through the same ordeal, Sander lin said.

Researchers say the experi exposure to microgravity, which is the period of free fall before an object once again encounters the effects of gravity, similar to the momentary feeling of weight lessness encountered on a roller coaster, only prolonged. This unique environment can achieve and therefore incredibly valuable for researchers. Despite the challenges in volved with microgravity, it is a necessary condition for many projects that depend on it, such ShipTwo.

If hes truly taught over 20,000 children how to swim and there are instances across different decades, my heart kind of melts thinking about how many others might have been hurt in this way. Ultimately I chose to share my story. Winter Park residents remem in the city. He joined Rollins Col lege as a swimming instructor in 1922 and became the Director of Aquatics, serving the college for more than 50 years, according to records from the Winter Park Pub lic Library. After retirement from Rollins instructor at Winter Park High School, having a new swimming pool named after him in 1976. His dedication to the Winter the volunteer work he did on be half of polio and cancer victims, Cub and Boy Scouts, Red Cross, and the YMCA, an oral history from the Winter Park Public Li brary website reads. In addition to his illustrious career as a swimming coach, he may be more recognized as the one who taught ,000 children to swim. His community involvement led the city to dedicate Lake Bald win Park in his name in May 1985. Fleetwood Sr. passed away in 1993 at the age of 95. Treasurer and Secretary Carla Lubet of Friends of Fleet Peeples Park would not comment on the allegations. A resolution to change the parks name to Lake Baldwin Park will go before the City Com mission at its July 14 meeting. A dog park is not an insult to me; its a place where creatures frolic, Sanderlin said. It never disgusted me, but it saddened me it hurts. Theres a sense of peace about it being called Lake Baldwin Park again. No one was hurt during the robbery. Thats the trend that weve been seeing now; its no longer where they go in guns blazing, Sgt. John Bologna said. What weve seen, even throughout Or ange County and other areas, is theyre very subdued. They go in, they dont look up, they keep their head down they dont want to bring attention to themselves. A similar bank robbery oc curred at a Bank of America loca tion in Winter Park last October. Before that incident, Winter Park hadnt seen a bank robbery since April of 2011 when suspect Quin ton Wilmer Jay Walker robbed a different Bank of America loca tion.

Dr. Joshua Colwell, a Univer sity of Central Florida physics professor is heading one of the experiments, designed to mea sure the behavior of dust in gentle collisions in low-gravity envi ronments such as the surfaces of small asteroids. The information gathered would provide insights into how dust on asteroids or small moonlike structures would react when impacted, perhaps by future manned missions. UCF students have been ac tively involved in the design, fabrication and testing of the hardware and electronics for the C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE experiment, Colwell said. Made in Space, co-founded by UCF engineering grad Jason SpaceShipTwo, but they are keep ing their project closer to the vest at this time. We are not making details of the project public just yet, said Made in Spaces marketing and communication director Grant Lowery. that the project is related to their designed to work in zero gravity. According to Galactics web site, Made in Space has designed an advanced manufacturing ex periment intended to feed the de velopment of future 3D printers customized for use in space. Their custom 3D printer has already been approved for launch to the International Space Station on SpaceX CRS-4 in August. The 3D printer works like a standard earth-bound printer, ex cept that it has proprietary modi work independent of gravity. This breakthrough would al low astronauts working on board the International Space Station to create new tools, replacement parts or consumables for use im mediately, rather than having to wait for them to arrive from earth. When the printer arrives at the ISS, it will come complete with pre-planned designs, ready to print, but eventually will be capa ble of just about any new design necessary, Lowery said. In addition to its usefulness to astronauts, Made in Space is also taking orders for researchers, manufacturers and artists who wish to have their designs printed in space. We already have dozens of companies and individuals inter ested, Lowery said. He declined to name a price for such a service, stating that each project would vary depending on complexity, size and materials.

She got a second mortgage on her home and a credit card with a $25,000 limit was maxed out in a matter of two months when she let a family member use it to start a business. Then she lost her job. My phone was ringing off the wall with collectors calling, and I would have to tell them the same thing every time, there was nothing different to tell them, I mean I didnt have the money, there was no money, Rose said. If I didnt want to eat I couldve paid them. Rose, a resident of Lehigh Acres in South Florida, was laid off in August 2012. Seven months later she was still looking for work, but then an unlikely company stepped up to help. The business she was in debt to, Fifth Third Bank, asked if she wanted some They said yes, so she did too. Two months later after nine months of unemployment, she landed her ideal job as a real estate of Rose was a part of Fifth Third Banks Reemployment campaign. With the reces sion, the bank saw lots of customers losing their jobs and getting behind on their mort and spreading payments over longer peri ods of time, but that didnt get to the root of the issue their customers needed jobs. So in 2012 Fifth Third partnered with com had lost their jobs, and offered them Nex tJobs employment seeking service: one-onone career coaching, an online educational toolkit and weekly webinars where coaches discuss frequent job seeking questions or skills a $1,500 program, for free. Partici pants were out of work for an average of 22 months, but after six months using the pro gram, 40 percent had jobs. We know that job loss is tough, its not just about your mortgage, thats a small piece of it, its about these peoples lives and we want to help them, said Stacie Haas, vice president and public relations manager at Fifth Third. It enabled them to stay in Job seekers build relationships with the coaches, who motivate them to keep searching and see their value, which is what makes the program unique, said Christine Stiller, director of coaching for NextJob. We have had a number of Fifth Third job seekers who have called their coach be fore they called their wife to tell them that they got a job, Stiller said. Theyve since sponsored more than 200 customers to go through the program. So cial media use is the new target of the cam paign. Theyve selected three job seekers whose video resumes are on the campaigns web site, and theyre asking the public to retweet their videos to expose them to as many job opportunities as possible. For ev ery 53 retweets, Fifth Third will sponsor an other person through the NextJob program. a job, said Maria Veltre, senior vice cer for the bank. Could we use the power of social networks taking what is a great tried-and-true way do today and take it to a different level in the social world. And Fifth Third isnt the only While CareerSource Central Florida is a for resume and job search help, they also offer a couple programs some might have overlooked. The youth program, for those ages 16 to 21, provides a paid internship for young people to learn job skills and expec tations early on so that they are ready for the job market when theyre done with school. For skilled and professional workers they offer a work experience paid internship to gain hands-on experience after completing Another organization thats getting even further toward the root of the unemploy ment issue is the University of Central Flor idas GrowFL Economic Gardening pro gram. It gives mid-size companies the tools to grow larger.

If you help create successful companies, everything else takes care of itself, because theyre the ones that hire new people and create new products, ONeal said.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, July 10, 2014 | Page 9 The Sanford River Rats still clung to a narrow league lead to start the week, but the Winter Park Diamond Dawgs are nip ping at their heels. Hunter Melton and the Rats beat the Winter Garden Squeeze 8-4 on July 4 before rain marred an entire weekend of Florida Col legiate Summer League play. But that game was looking like any thing but a blowout in the ninth inning, when the score swung from 4-2 to a tie game to a slaugh ter by Sanford all in the course of six outs. Melton was typically on the ball, going 3-for-5 for the game with an RBI double thrown in. He also struck out two in relief nings of the game, giving up no hits. Meanwhile the Dawgs dropped a game and a half out of the leagues top spot after falling 7-1 to the Leesburg Lightning, in a game blown open by a four-run seventh inning. Every one of the nine batters the Dawgs sent to the plate would get a hit on the night, but nine stranded runners ruined their shot at a win. After the FCSL All-Star break at press time, the Rats will host the Dawgs at 7 p.m. July 10 at San ford Memorial Stadium. At 7 p.m. Friday theyll have a rematch, this time at Alfond Stadium in Winter more game schedules.

BEAUTIFUL 3-STORY TOWNHOME TUSCAN STYLE HOME WITH ATTRACTIVE BRICK FRONT HOME FANTASTIC FAMILY HOME Some of the most frequently asked real estate questions I get have to do with qualifying for a home loan. What types of things should a home buyer do in or der to improve their score, and what do lenders consider when approving loans, beyond credit issues? Fortunately the formula for qualifying and is pretty simple. I know from a decade of selling homes some of the major problems that confront homebuyers in the process of obtaining a loan, but I wanted to hear it straight from a group of underwriters. Ultimately they are the people you need to give you their stamp of approval in order to close on your new dream home. Dan, Lillian and Carolyn with Fairwinds Credit Union were kind enough to compile a list of the top for home loans. Ive paraphrased their responses below and added my thoughts on the matter. Issues are ranked in order of frequency of occurrence. 1) Credit issues Im frequently asked what the minimum credit score to obtain a loan is. Generally speaking most lenders prefer a score above 620. Obviously the higher the score the more favorable lending condi tions for the borrower. Late pays can really put a dent in your score so make sure you pay all bills on time, even the small ones and especially while you are house hunting. No buying expensive new cars or large furniture items on credit either. That leads us to the next point. 2) Debt-to-income ratios In most cases your debt to in come ratio should be under 43 mortgage regulations. For those who are self-employed this is a very important part of the quali be calculated on what you claim on your tax returns, so watch those write offs. 3) Asset verication Make sure you have the funds you need to close in your account! Large cash deposits can raise a a mattress only to put it in your account two weeks from closing! Im making light of the situation here, but seriously. Be prepared to explain your deposits, and if at all possible make any such large deposits a couple months before heading to the closing table. An other important fact underwrit ers consider: do you have enough liquid assets to cover your down payment, closing costs and a few months of the mortgage? If the an swer is no, start saving now. 4) Appraisal issues Sometimes a home doesnt appraise for the contract price. This is generally a known issue in a situation, and your Realtor will be able to provide you with a market analysis to show you what similar homes are selling for, hopefully helping you avoid this entirely. Nonetheless this is sue does still crop up from time to time. Some buyers are OK with this if they love the home enough and it has special features.

What a buyer states they make and what they can actually prove are two dif ferent things. You must be able to demonstrate you earn what you say you earn, 99 percent of lend ers are not interested in stated in come anymore. So pay stubs and tax returns are key here. Bonus points: Incomplete applications While not turning in the docu ments your lender requests in a timely manner might not get your loan denied, it can certainly cause you to miss your closing date so the documents they need quickly to ensure a seamless process from contract to close.

Page 12 | Thursday, July 10, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer DEAR PAWS CORNER: A few days ago, my older brother on the side of the road. Its a pretty nice one with a wooden cabinet and a big, dirty tank. Is it DEAR JACKIE: If the glass isnt damaged and the aquarium equipment like the light or the aerator is in good shape or can be replaced, then you should be able to reuse it. If you know someone with a lot of experience have him or her look at it and make sure its OK. If so, then do a really good cleaning on the tank and any equipment that will go into it. First, remove the equipment and any old gravel from the tank. Fill the tank with cool or warm water (dont use hot water) and let it soak for a day. Pour out the water and scrub with a lint-free cloth or a sponge to clear away dirt, mold and mineral scale from the glass and bottom of the tank. Next, mix white vinegar with water, about half and half, and wash out the tank again to kill many of the microbes that may be in there. Vinegar also helps to loosen any mineral scale on the glass. Rinse well. Now you can begin slowly building your aquarium. Set it gravel on the bottom. Fill with water, add water conditioner and special supplements such as Bac tria, and let the aerator run for at least two days. In the meantime, read up on how to maintain a large aquar ium, which takes much more it. You should add them one at to managing the larger water system.

PENDING NEW PRICE Q: Some kind of animal Im not sure if its a deer or a rabbit or what is nibbling away the leaves on many of my plants in the yard and garden. Whats the best way to keep these critters out of my yard? A reader, via email A: Wildlife often can be an an noying (and sometimes danger ous) presence in your yard, and them out. Deer, for example, can hop fences, and rabbits, moles and other mammals can tunnel underneath or squeeze between damaged or misaligned boards. Squirrels routinely raid bird feeders, and in some places, bears just meander through, searching for their favorite snack buffet the trash barrel. Here are some tips: coons, keep household trash in tightly covered containers, ide ally inside the garage or a shed. quently and cover with dirt to minimize odors, so that rodents dont start tunneling in. dismayed by the smell of soap some homeowners recommend putting bars of soap into old pantyhose, and then tying the hose around tree branches near the areas you want deer to avoid. 5 feet away from trees and walls so its harder for squirrels to reach them. discourage rabbits and make it harder for moles to tunnel directly to vegetable roots. Also, intersperse naturally repellent vegetables such as onion, garlic and chives throughout the gar as lavender or marigold. building materials several feet away from your house or shed, and make sure theyre stacked so that air and light can get through them. This will discourage ro dents and insects from taking up residence. Send your questions and home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com. 2014 King Features Synd. By Samantha Mazzotta Dodging the DraftQ: The apartment Im living in has older windows, and now that winter is almost here, the cold air is seeping in easily. My landlord said he winterized the windows by painting them shut. I dont think thats a solution. Any tips for me to quickly shut out the draft and get those windows open? Chilly Nose in Brattleboro, Vt.A: There are better solutions out there, for sure, than painting over drafty spots in the windows. And having windows that are stuck shut is a clear safety issue. Since your land lord isnt in a hurry to fix or replace those leaky windows, you have some options to get through this winter comfortably and without having to spend too much money on heating. First, unstick those windows. Use a box cutter to slice through the new paint down to the corners where the window sash meets the frame. Then gently wiggle the window open so the new paint isnt damaged or torn away. Once the window is open, make sure it slides open and shut smoothly. If not, look for paint or other gunk on the slide tracks in which the sash is set. Sand this stuff away and then smooth the tracks by running a bar of soap along them a few times. Next, see if the screen outside the window (if there is one) is part of a storm window-screen combination. If so, you can slide the screen up to sit behind the top pane of the storm window, and slide the bottom storm window down. This provides added protection against wind and weather. Now, youll need to weather-strip the window. Measure the width and height of each window to figure out how much weather stripping youll need. For a rental unit, you shouldnt invest in the most expensive weather stripping, either. Compressible strips, usually made of foam or another flexible material, with adhesive backing usually work well and are easy to install. Measure and cut the stripping to fit along the bottom of the window sash. Make sure it fits and that the window closes completely and can be locked before attaching it by its adhesive backing. You may need to weather-strip other parts of the window, depending on their type, age and the condition theyre in. Make sure the strips dont interfere with easy operation of the window. If you have a door that leads outside, try adding a piece of weather stripping along the base of the door to keep out drafts. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com.

Shinseki), it wasnt as bad as expected. In a pre-shutdown reprieve, the VA was granted an exemption, and claims processing stayed up and running. However, during the shutdown, processors werent able to continue working their 20 hours per month mandatory overtime to whittle away at the backlog (claims that have been sitting for more than 125 days). That mandatory overtime has been a key component to getting the backlog reduced, and will stop completely in November. One would think that a lot of claims work was left undone. But the Monday Workload Report shows that despite the shutdown, the canceled overtime and all the doomand-gloom projections, the number of claims actually went down. Grant ed, they didnt go down by much, but they did go down. (If you want to view the archived file of Monday Morning Reports, go online to www. vba.va.gov/reports/mmwr/) Remember that before the shut down, the VA hadnt met its own projections of how fast the number of claims would fall on their way to eliminating the backlog. It didnt meet its own goal to the tune of approximately 100,000 claims for fiscal year 2013. (Some in Congress were a bit annoyed about that, since the VA had been granted $1.59 billion specifically to bring down the backlog.) Bottom line: If the mandatory over time is canceled permanently, then yes, the number of delayed claims can continue to go down, but it will be at a very slow rate. While the VA is still aiming for 2015 to clean up that backlog, its looking increasingly unlikely for that to happen.

Make it in a plastic bag Many of my childhood sum mer memories are based on cranking the handle of ice-cream makers at picnics and family reunions. Nowadays, when you ask kids about ice cream, they are more likely to associate it with the cold, hazy cloud coming out of the supermarket freezer than with the sound of ice swirling around in an ice-cream maker on a hot summer evening. You dont need a commercial machine to make the real thing. For an unconventional method, use plastic bags, a simple oldfashioned recipe and your kids energy. Heres the latest scoop on how to make a basic, no-cook vanilla ice cream. SHAKE-AND-MAKE ICE CREAM (serves 2) 1 gallon-size sturdy, zipperstyle plastic bag 2 pint-size zipper-style plastic bags Several cups of crushed ice to 1/2 cup coarse salt such as ko sher salt, or rock salt for ice cream Ingredients: 1 cup half-and-half cream, or mix half-and-half cream with heavy whipping cream -teaspoon vanilla extract 2 tablespoons sugar 1. Stir together cream, vanilla and sugar in a bowl. Add an op tional extra if you wish. Pour into one of the smaller bags. Press out as much air as possible, then seal it. Slip that bag into a second pintsize bag, release air and seal. 2. Scoop enough ice into the larger bag to generously cover the bottom. Sprinkle some salt over the ice. Set the small sealed bags inside the large bag, then add more ice and salt. Release air and seal. 3. Hold the large bag with both hands and turn it over and over, massage it, and gently shake it consistently for 15 minutes. Since it will feel very cold, you may wish to wrap it in a towel or wear mittens as you work. 4. When the mixture turns into ice cream, carefully unseal the outer pintsize bag before opening the inner bag, making sure that ice and salt dont get into your batch of ice cream. Spoon into bowls and enjoy. If you wish to eat it later, spoon it into a storage container and put into the freezer.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, July 10, 2014 | Page 19 Opinions King Features Weekly ServiceJuly 7, 2014 EDITORIAL CARTOONS Chris Jepson Perspectives Whats in a name? You move into any new community and various landmarks, parks, streets or buildings will be named times there are plaques listing what Mr. Big Cheese did so long ago that today we still offer public acclaim and our gratitude. He could be a Founding Father or com munity benefactor or, perhaps, a longtime public servant who made many memo rable impressions on the local citizenry (maybe over multiple generations). Only to one day discover he was lower than pond scum. I am not sure what will ultimately be revealed about Fleet Peoples Sr., how many lives he adversely affected, but I suggest his name will soon be excised from the local park paying tribute to his many contribu tions. It must be extremely painful for a lot of people, not only the ones he betrayed and abused but for those who personally thought him a wonderful human being. It is such a monumental deception. Perhaps he was a neighbor or a fellow civic club member. Perhaps you punched a clock with the man, had an occasional drink af ter work or sat in the pew behind him for years. Without a hint, without an inkling, that he molested children. The only crime more reprehensible than rape is child molestation. Sure, thought entering my mind when I hear of a slaying is, Did he have it coming? I jest but just slightly. To betray the trust ishment if I were holding the scales. Jerry Sandusky of Penn State abused children for decades. It set back a nation ally recognized football program (hor rors!), cost university administrators their careers and the institution a monumental settlement. He tarnished so many reputa tions besides his own that the fallout will be felt for years. But, time will inexorably pass and the stain marks will slowly fade from the long ago removed statues and plaques. A generation from now, college freshmen will ask, if at all, Jerry who? But for those still living such betrayal never fades. Another German concentra tion camp (Auschwitz) guard (Johann in America (Philadelphia) and will be extradited back for a trial. He denies any participation, offering only that he was there but did nothing. Its a particularly hard sell to me that you had a job at Auschwitz, that it was merely bureaucratic the benign desk job claim. Its the Sergeant Schultz (see: Hogans Heroes) I see nothing defense. His neighbors, no doubt, considered him a quiet model citi zen, maybe a little heavy with the German accent, but a good, decent law-abiding neighbor. Imagine the realization that you lived next door to a mass murderer. Shocking! And it begs a question or two. How do you live with yourself know ing that you are a pedophile, a rapist or sadistic Holocaust guard (whether or not you followed orders is meaningless)? spicable and still mow your lawn, take out your garbage and wave to your neighbors while heading off to work? How do pres ent normalcy when horror has been (is) your modus operandi? Stealthily for sure. So many crimes and not the least is the violation of public trust. It is an egregious tear in the fabric of human relationships. We think we know another human being. Think again. Sadly so. Ya never know Jepson is a 27-year resident of Central Florida. Hes scally conservative, socially liberal, likes art and embraces diversity of opinion. Reach him at Jepson@MEDIAmerica.US Louis Roney Play On! Ones past is not alive in ones mind at all times, but we manage to drudge up valuable long forgotten moments and places when the occasion calls for it. Which school do we best remember: grammar school, high school or college? I think I can remember more names from grammar school than I can from college with its hun dreds of individuals. When we are kids, our memory becomes deeply engraved with the few people whom we really know well. As an undergraduate at Harvard, guys that I knew from Birmingham, Michigan and Shaker Heights, Ohio assumed that everyone knew those famous suburbs, but when I said Winter Park, very few people had ever heard of it. I dont think that Win ter Park is today so removed from public view, and people up North seem to know exactly where were talking about. I do remember one cogent fact however: Back in those old days, Winter Park was not to be thought of as a suburb of Orlando! A large sign extended above Orange Avenue mak ing it crystal clear when a car was entering or leaving Winter Park. Winter Park schools were reputedly more desirable than Orlandos, and some how a few Orlando kids managed to attend Winter Park High School with us entitled kids. These days, medical facilities in hospital right at our doorstep. In the late wintertime, old Winter Park ers used to have the opportunity to see many of the top baseball players of the world playing practice games in Winter Parks Harper-Shepard Field and in Tinker Field in Orlando. I remember seeing Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmy Foxx, and many others. If I remember correctly, it was saw Jackie Robinson practicing with the Dodgers. All in all, my remembrance of my school days in Winter Park is of a very placid, genteel and proper atmosphere, with hardly any hint of the hustle and bustle of today. There were few policemen, or need for many, and they were highly visible with one whom we all knew standing on a Park Avenue corner downtown. We greeted names as well. Crime was almost non-exis tent here and I honestly do not remember any major crime in all in the years before my 17th birthday. We lived in Forest Hills and I rode my bike some 2 miles to and from WPHS. When we were downtown, my parents left the car keys in the ignition when we got out to shop. And our doors at home awaited us unlocked. Many unsold vacant houses on Aloma and in Forest Hills were left empty and wide-open for anyone at all to inspect. No one uninvited mistreated or disturbed them. As you notice, things were simpler in those days, and in our town people were almost universally simple and honest as well. A bunch of us boys in our early teens used to meet at a drug store that opened wide on the sidewalk of Park Avenue. For a nickel we could get a big root beer and even was a dime and that was stretching our means. The Baby Grand Theater on Park Avenue charged us kids a dime, I think such as Laurel and Hardy, then a newsreel with a generous sampling of football games from all over, and other sports in season. At WPHS the classes held junior and senior dances at the Winter Park Womans Club where local dance bands played for anywhere from $15 to $25 for the whole evening. One of our teachers was always the chaperone, a very nice lady whom all of us boys had the obligation to ask for one dance. On Sundays most of us went to Sunday school and church. Sunday dinner at home was at midday with the family. Sunday afternoons we guys played tennis, golf, or went swimming at Rollins or the Dinky Dock if you liked seeing alligators! One alligator ate my dog Edward! I was in the water a few feet away. Yesteryear here About Roney: HarvardDistinguished Prof, Em.UCF 2004 Fla.

Five women have reported being molested from as early as age 4 by late swimming instruc Fleet Peeples Sr., according to the Orlando Sentinel. The recent allegations have already prompted the city to take action. City Manager Randy Knight released a statement on Monday that the City Commission will look at renaming Fleet Peeples Park a dog-friendly green space by Lake Baldwin to its original name of Lake Baldwin Park. While the city cannot prove or disprove the allegations contained in the Orlando Sentinel article, because of the number of people that have come forward and because of the severity of their claims, city staff believes the community is best served by returning the park back to its origi nal name, the statement read. The alleged incidents took place during the early s, mids and mid-s, according to the Orlando Sentinel. New York resident and freelance writer Katherine Sanderlin, 42, grew up in Orlando and took swim ming lessons from Peeples Sr. as a young girl. Sanderlin recalls learning how to swim, but also a camping trip with the longtime swimming in structor that brings back painful memories. I was wearing a nightgown and he just reached his hand up my nightgown and he felt I was wearing underwear, Sanderlin said. He said Little girls dont wear panties to bed. I took them off and I just re member his hands doing some kind of action on the lower half of my body. The reports from Sanderlin and four other women came af ter the arrest of Peeples Sr.s son, Fleetwood Peeples Jr., in Febru ary over child molestation and pornography charges. He report edly admitted to molesting as many as a dozen boys while serving as a Cub Scout and Boy Scout leader in the 1980s. The younger Peeples is cur rently in the Orange County Jail with a bail set at $12,500. It came as a relief to hear oth er women speak out after going through the same ordeal, Sander lin said.PHOTO BY TIM FREED THE OBSERVERFleet Peeples Park may be renamed after a public outcry regarding molestation accusations.

If hes truly taught over 20,000 children how to swim and there are instances across different decades, my heart kind of melts thinking about how many others might have been hurt in this way. Ultimately I chose to share my story. Winter Park residents remem in the city. He joined Rollins Col lege as a swimming instructor in 1922 and became the Director of Aquatics, serving the college for more than 50 years, according to records from the Winter Park Pub lic Library. After retirement from Rollins instructor at Winter Park High School, having a new swimming pool named after him in 1976. His dedication to the Winter the volunteer work he did on be half of polio and cancer victims, Cub and Boy Scouts, Red Cross, and the YMCA, an oral history from the Winter Park Public Li brary website reads. In addition to his illustrious career as a swimming coach, he may be more recognized as the one who taught ,000 children to swim. His community involvement led the city to dedicate Lake Bald win Park in his name in May 1985. Fleetwood Sr. passed away in 1993 at the age of 95. Treasurer and Secretary Carla Lubet of Friends of Fleet Peeples Park would not comment on the allegations. A resolution to change the parks name to Lake Baldwin Park will go before the City Com mission at its July 14 meeting. A dog park is not an insult to me; its a place where creatures frolic, Sanderlin said. It never disgusted me, but it saddened me it hurts. Theres a sense of peace about it being called Lake Baldwin Park again. No one was hurt during the robbery. Thats the trend that weve been seeing now; its no longer where they go in guns blazing, Sgt. John Bologna said. What weve seen, even throughout Or ange County and other areas, is theyre very subdued. They go in, they dont look up, they keep their head down they dont want to bring attention to themselves. A similar bank robbery oc curred at a Bank of America loca tion in Winter Park last October. Before that incident, Winter Park hadnt seen a bank robbery since April of 2011 when suspect Quinton Wilmer Jay Walker robbed a different Bank of America loca tion.

According to Galactics web site, Made in Space has designed an advanced manufacturing ex periment intended to feed the de velopment of future 3D printers customized for use in space. Their custom 3D printer has already been approved for launch to the International Space Station on SpaceX CRS-4 in August. The 3D printer works like a standard earth-bound printer, ex cept that it has proprietary modi work independent of gravity. This breakthrough would al low astronauts working on board the International Space Station to create new tools, replacement parts or consumables for use im mediately, rather than having to wait for them to arrive from earth. When the printer arrives at the ISS, it will come complete with pre-planned designs, ready to print, but eventually will be capa ble of just about any new design necessary, Lowery said. In addition to its usefulness to astronauts, Made in Space is also taking orders for researchers, manufacturers and artists who wish to have their designs printed in space. We already have dozens of companies and individuals inter ested, Lowery said. He declined to name a price for such a service, stating that each project would vary depending on complexity, size and materials.

Page 6 | Thursday, July 10, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer Lifestyles Barb Rose was in major debt. She got a second mortgage on her home and a credit card with a $25,000 limit was maxed out in a matter of two months when she let a family member use it to start a business. Then she lost her job. My phone was ringing off the wall with collectors calling, and I would have to tell them the same thing every time, there was nothing different to tell them, I mean I didnt have the money, there was no money, Rose said. If I didnt want to eat I couldve paid them. Rose, a resident of Lehigh Acres in South Florida, was laid off in August 2012. Seven months later she was still looking for work, but then an unlikely company stepped up to help. The business she was in debt to, Fifth Third Bank, asked if she wanted some They said yes, so she did too. Two months later after nine months of unemployment, she landed her ideal job as a real estate of Rose was a part of Fifth Third Banks Reemployment campaign. With the recession, the bank saw lots of customers losing their jobs and getting behind on their mort and spreading payments over longer peri ods of time, but that didnt get to the root of the issue their customers needed jobs. So in 2012 Fifth Third partnered with comhad lost their jobs, and offered them Nex tJobs employment seeking service: one-onone career coaching, an online educational toolkit and weekly webinars where coaches discuss frequent job seeking questions or skills a $1,500 program, for free. Partici pants were out of work for an average of 22 months, but after six months using the program, 40 percent had jobs. We know that job loss is tough, its not just about your mortgage, thats a small piece of it, its about these peoples lives and we want to help them, said Stacie Haas, vice president and public relations manager at Fifth Third. It enabled them to stay in Job seekers build relationships with the coaches, who motivate them to keep searching and see their value, which is what makes the program unique, said Christine Stiller, director of coaching for NextJob. We have had a number of Fifth Third job seekers who have called their coach be fore they called their wife to tell them that they got a job, Stiller said. Theyve since sponsored more than 200 customers to go through the program. So cial media use is the new target of the cam paign. Theyve selected three job seekers whose video resumes are on the campaigns web site, and theyre asking the public to retweet their videos to expose them to as many job opportunities as possible. For ev ery 53 retweets, Fifth Third will sponsor another person through the NextJob program. a job, said Maria Veltre, senior vice cer for the bank. Could we use the power of social networks taking what is a great tried-and-true way do today and take it to a different level in the social world. And Fifth Third isnt the only While CareerSource Central Florida is a for resume and job search help, they also offer a couple programs some might have overlooked. The youth program, for those ages 16 to 21, provides a paid internship for young people to learn job skills and expec tations early on so that they are ready for the job market when theyre done with school. For skilled and professional workers they offer a work experience paid internship to gain hands-on experience after completing Another organization thats getting even further toward the root of the unemployment issue is the University of Central Flor idas GrowFL Economic Gardening program. It gives mid-size companies the tools to grow larger. Theyre a disproportionately effective type of business to help because they account for just 8 percent of businesses yet produce 34 percent of net new jobs, said Tom ONeal, executive director. Between create nearly 3,745 net new jobs in the state of Florida, which equates to $587 million added to Floridas economy and nearly $20 million more in state and local tax revenues. If you help create successful companies, everything else takes care of itself, because theyre the ones that hire new people and create new products, ONeal said. So its likely that looking into a local, mid-size business and not that big box your next job.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, July 10, 2014 | Page 9 The Sanford River Rats still clung to a narrow league lead to start the week, but the Winter Park Diamond Dawgs are nip ping at their heels. Hunter Melton and the Rats beat the Winter Garden Squeeze 8-4 on July 4 before rain marred an entire weekend of Florida Col legiate Summer League play. But that game was looking like anything but a blowout in the ninth inning, when the score swung from 4-2 to a tie game to a slaughter by Sanford all in the course of six outs. Melton was typically on the ball, going 3-for-5 for the game with an RBI double thrown in. He also struck out two in relief nings of the game, giving up no hits. Meanwhile the Dawgs dropped a game and a half out of the leagues top spot after falling 7-1 to the Leesburg Lightning, in a game blown open by a four-run seventh inning. Every one of the nine batters the Dawgs sent to the plate would get a hit on the night, but nine stranded runners ruined their shot at a win. After the FCSL All-Star break at press time, the Rats will host the Dawgs at 7 p.m. July 10 at Sanford Memorial Stadium. At 7 p.m. Friday theyll have a rematch, this time at Alfond Stadium in Winter more game schedules.

BEAUTIFUL 3-STORY TOWNHOME TUSCAN STYLE HOME WITH ATTRACTIVE BRICK FRONT HOME FANTASTIC FAMILY HOME Some of the most frequently asked real estate questions I get have to do with qualifying for a home loan. What types of things should a home buyer do in or der to improve their score, and what do lenders consider when approving loans, beyond credit issues? Fortunately the formula for qualifying and is pretty simple. I know from a decade of selling homes some of the major problems that confront homebuyers in the process of obtaining a loan, but I wanted to hear it straight from a group of underwriters. Ultimately they are the people you need to give you their stamp of approval in order to close on your new dream home. Dan, Lillian and Carolyn with Fairwinds Credit Union were kind enough to compile a list of the top for home loans. Ive paraphrased their responses below and added my thoughts on the matter. Issues are ranked in order of frequency of occurrence.1) Credit issuesIm frequently asked what the minimum credit score to obtain a loan is. Generally speaking most lenders prefer a score above 620. Obviously the higher the score the more favorable lending condi tions for the borrower. Late pays can really put a dent in your score so make sure you pay all bills on time, even the small ones and especially while you are house hunting. No buying expensive new cars or large furniture items on credit either. That leads us to the next point.2) Debt-to-income ratiosIn most cases your debt to in come ratio should be under 43 mortgage regulations. For those who are self-employed this is a very important part of the quali be calculated on what you claim on your tax returns, so watch those write offs. 3) Asset vericationMake sure you have the funds you need to close in your account! Large cash deposits can raise a a mattress only to put it in your account two weeks from closing! Im making light of the situation here, but seriously. Be prepared to explain your deposits, and if at all possible make any such large deposits a couple months before heading to the closing table. An other important fact underwriters consider: do you have enough liquid assets to cover your down payment, closing costs and a few months of the mortgage? If the an swer is no, start saving now.4) Appraisal issuesSometimes a home doesnt appraise for the contract price. This is generally a known issue in a situation, and your Realtor will be able to provide you with a market analysis to show you what similar homes are selling for, hopefully helping you avoid this entirely. Nonetheless this is sue does still crop up from time to time. Some buyers are OK with this if they love the home enough and it has special features.

What a buyer states they make and what they can actually prove are two dif ferent things. You must be able to demonstrate you earn what you say you earn, 99 percent of lenders are not interested in stated income anymore. So pay stubs and tax returns are key here.Bonus points: Incomplete applicationsWhile not turning in the docu ments your lender requests in a timely manner might not get your loan denied, it can certainly cause you to miss your closing date so the documents they need quickly to ensure a seamless process from contract to close.

Page 12 | Thursday, July 10, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer DEAR PAWS CORNER: A few days ago, my older brother on the side of the road. Its a pretty nice one with a wooden cabinet and a big, dirty tank. Is it DEAR JACKIE: If the glass isnt damaged and the aquarium equipment like the light or the aerator is in good shape or can be replaced, then you should be able to reuse it. If you know someone with a lot of experience have him or her look at it and make sure its OK. If so, then do a really good cleaning on the tank and any equipment that will go into it. First, remove the equipment and any old gravel from the tank. Fill the tank with cool or warm water (dont use hot water) and let it soak for a day. Pour out the water and scrub with a lint-free cloth or a sponge to clear away dirt, mold and mineral scale from the glass and bottom of the tank. Next, mix white vinegar with water, about half and half, and wash out the tank again to kill many of the microbes that may be in there. Vinegar also helps to loosen any mineral scale on the glass. Rinse well. Now you can begin slowly building your aquarium. Set it gravel on the bottom. Fill with water, add water conditioner and special supplements such as Bac tria, and let the aerator run for at least two days. In the meantime, read up on how to maintain a large aquar ium, which takes much more it. You should add them one at to managing the larger water system.

PENDING NEW PRICE Q: Some kind of animal Im not sure if its a deer or a rabbit or what is nibbling away the leaves on many of my plants in the yard and garden. Whats the best way to keep these critters out of my yard? A reader, via email A: Wildlife often can be an annoying (and sometimes danger ous) presence in your yard, and them out. Deer, for example, can hop fences, and rabbits, moles and other mammals can tunnel underneath or squeeze between damaged or misaligned boards. Squirrels routinely raid bird feeders, and in some places, bears just meander through, searching for their favorite snack buffet the trash barrel. Here are some tips: coons, keep household trash in tightly covered containers, ideally inside the garage or a shed. quently and cover with dirt to minimize odors, so that rodents dont start tunneling in. dismayed by the smell of soap some homeowners recommend putting bars of soap into old pantyhose, and then tying the hose around tree branches near the areas you want deer to avoid. 5 feet away from trees and walls so its harder for squirrels to reach them. discourage rabbits and make it harder for moles to tunnel directly to vegetable roots. Also, intersperse naturally repellent vegetables such as onion, garlic and chives throughout the gar as lavender or marigold. building materials several feet away from your house or shed, and make sure theyre stacked so that air and light can get through them. This will discourage rodents and insects from taking up residence. Send your questions and home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com. 2014 King Features Synd. By Samantha Mazzotta Dodging the DraftQ: The apartment Im living in has older windows, and now that winter is almost here, the cold air is seeping in easily. My landlord said he winterized the windows by painting them shut. I dont think thats a solution. Any tips for me to quickly shut out the draft and get those windows open? Chilly Nose in Brattleboro, Vt.A: There are better solutions out there, for sure, than painting over drafty spots in the windows. And having windows that are stuck shut is a clear safety issue. Since your land lord isnt in a hurry to fix or replace those leaky windows, you have some options to get through this winter comfortably and without having to spend too much money on heating. First, unstick those windows. Use a box cutter to slice through the new paint down to the corners where the window sash meets the frame. Then gently wiggle the window open so the new paint isnt damaged or torn away. Once the window is open, make sure it slides open and shut smoothly. If not, look for paint or other gunk on the slide tracks in which the sash is set. Sand this stuff away and then smooth the tracks by running a bar of soap along them a few times. Next, see if the screen outside the window (if there is one) is part of a storm window-screen combination. If so, you can slide the screen up to sit behind the top pane of the storm window, and slide the bottom storm window down. This provides added protection against wind and weather. Now, youll need to weather-strip the window. Measure the width and height of each window to figure out how much weather stripping youll need. For a rental unit, you shouldnt invest in the most expensive weather stripping, either. Compressible strips, usually made of foam or another flexible material, with adhesive backing usually work well and are easy to install. Measure and cut the stripping to fit along the bottom of the window sash. Make sure it fits and that the window closes completely and can be locked before attaching it by its adhesive backing. You may need to weather-strip other parts of the window, depending on their type, age and the condition theyre in. Make sure the strips dont interfere with easy operation of the window. If you have a door that leads outside, try adding a piece of weather stripping along the base of the door to keep out drafts. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com.

Shinseki), it wasnt as bad as expected. In a pre-shutdown reprieve, the VA was granted an exemption, and claims processing stayed up and running. However, during the shutdown, processors werent able to continue working their 20 hours per month mandatory overtime to whittle away at the backlog (claims that have been sitting for more than 125 days). That mandatory overtime has been a key component to getting the backlog reduced, and will stop completely in November. One would think that a lot of claims work was left undone. But the Monday Workload Report shows that despite the shutdown, the canceled overtime and all the doomand-gloom projections, the number of claims actually went down. Grant ed, they didnt go down by much, but they did go down. (If you want to view the archived file of Monday Morning Reports, go online to www. vba.va.gov/reports/mmwr/) Remember that before the shut down, the VA hadnt met its own projections of how fast the number of claims would fall on their way to eliminating the backlog. It didnt meet its own goal to the tune of approximately 100,000 claims for fiscal year 2013. (Some in Congress were a bit annoyed about that, since the VA had been granted $1.59 billion specifically to bring down the backlog.) Bottom line: If the mandatory over time is canceled permanently, then yes, the number of delayed claims can continue to go down, but it will be at a very slow rate. While the VA is still aiming for 2015 to clean up that backlog, its looking increasingly unlikely for that to happen.

Make it in a plastic bag Many of my childhood sum mer memories are based on cranking the handle of ice-cream makers at picnics and family reunions. Nowadays, when you ask kids about ice cream, they are more likely to associate it with the cold, hazy cloud coming out of the supermarket freezer than with the sound of ice swirling around in an ice-cream maker on a hot summer evening. You dont need a commercial machine to make the real thing. For an unconventional method, use plastic bags, a simple oldfashioned recipe and your kids energy. Heres the latest scoop on how to make a basic, no-cook vanilla ice cream. SHAKE-AND-MAKE ICE CREAM (serves 2) 1 gallon-size sturdy, zipperstyle plastic bag 2 pint-size zipper-style plastic bags Several cups of crushed ice to 1/2 cup coarse salt such as ko sher salt, or rock salt for ice cream Ingredients: 1 cup half-and-half cream, or mix half-and-half cream with heavy whipping cream -teaspoon vanilla extract 2 tablespoons sugar 1. Stir together cream, vanilla and sugar in a bowl. Add an optional extra if you wish. Pour into one of the smaller bags. Press out as much air as possible, then seal it. Slip that bag into a second pintsize bag, release air and seal. 2. Scoop enough ice into the larger bag to generously cover the bottom. Sprinkle some salt over the ice. Set the small sealed bags inside the large bag, then add more ice and salt. Release air and seal. 3. Hold the large bag with both hands and turn it over and over, massage it, and gently shake it consistently for 15 minutes. Since it will feel very cold, you may wish to wrap it in a towel or wear mittens as you work. 4. When the mixture turns into ice cream, carefully unseal the outer pintsize bag before opening the inner bag, making sure that ice and salt dont get into your batch of ice cream. Spoon into bowls and enjoy. If you wish to eat it later, spoon it into a storage container and put into the freezer.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, July 10, 2014 | Page 19Opinions King Features Weekly ServiceJuly 7, 2014 EDITORIAL CARTOONS Chris Jepson PerspectivesWhats in a name? You move into any new community and various landmarks, parks, streets or buildings will be named times there are plaques listing what Mr. Big Cheese did so long ago that today we still offer public acclaim and our gratitude. He could be a Founding Father or community benefactor or, perhaps, a longtime public servant who made many memo rable impressions on the local citizenry (maybe over multiple generations). Only to one day discover he was lower than pond scum. I am not sure what will ultimately be revealed about Fleet Peoples Sr., how many lives he adversely affected, but I suggest his name will soon be excised from the local park paying tribute to his many contributions. It must be extremely painful for a lot of people, not only the ones he betrayed and abused but for those who personally thought him a wonderful human being. It is such a monumental deception. Perhaps he was a neighbor or a fellow civic club member. Perhaps you punched a clock with the man, had an occasional drink after work or sat in the pew behind him for years. Without a hint, without an inkling, that he molested children. The only crime more reprehensible than rape is child molestation. Sure, thought entering my mind when I hear of a slaying is, Did he have it coming? I jest but just slightly. To betray the trust ishment if I were holding the scales. Jerry Sandusky of Penn State abused children for decades. It set back a nationally recognized football program (hor rors!), cost university administrators their careers and the institution a monumental settlement. He tarnished so many reputa tions besides his own that the fallout will be felt for years. But, time will inexorably pass and the stain marks will slowly fade from the long ago removed statues and plaques. A generation from now, college freshmen will ask, if at all, Jerry who? But for those still living such betrayal never fades. Another German concentration camp (Auschwitz) guard (Johann in America (Philadelphia) and will be extradited back for a trial. He denies any participation, offering only that he was there but did nothing. Its a particularly hard sell to me that you had a job at Auschwitz, that it was merely bureaucratic the benign desk job claim. Its the Sergeant Schultz (see: Hogans Heroes) I see nothing defense. His neighbors, no doubt, considered him a quiet model citizen, maybe a little heavy with the German accent, but a good, decent law-abiding neighbor. Imagine the realization that you lived next door to a mass murderer. Shocking! And it begs a question or two. How do you live with yourself knowing that you are a pedophile, a rapist or sadistic Holocaust guard (whether or not you followed orders is meaningless)? spicable and still mow your lawn, take out your garbage and wave to your neighbors while heading off to work? How do present normalcy when horror has been (is) your modus operandi? Stealthily for sure. So many crimes and not the least is the violation of public trust. It is an egregious tear in the fabric of human relationships. We think we know another human being. Think again. Sadly so.Ya never know Jepson is a 27-year resident of Central Florida. Hes scally conservative, socially liberal, likes art and embraces diversity of opinion. Reach him at Jepson@MEDIAmerica.US Louis Roney Play On!Ones past is not alive in ones mind at all times, but we manage to drudge up valuable long forgotten moments and places when the occasion calls for it. Which school do we best remember: grammar school, high school or college? I think I can remember more names from grammar school than I can from college with its hundreds of individuals. When we are kids, our memory becomes deeply engraved with the few people whom we really know well. As an undergraduate at Harvard, guys that I knew from Birmingham, Michigan and Shaker Heights, Ohio assumed that everyone knew those famous suburbs, but when I said Winter Park, very few people had ever heard of it. I dont think that Win ter Park is today so removed from public view, and people up North seem to know exactly where were talking about. I do remember one cogent fact however: Back in those old days, Winter Park was not to be thought of as a suburb of Orlando! A large sign extended above Orange Avenue mak ing it crystal clear when a car was entering or leaving Winter Park. Winter Park schools were reputedly more desirable than Orlandos, and some how a few Orlando kids managed to attend Winter Park High School with us entitled kids. These days, medical facilities in hospital right at our doorstep. In the late wintertime, old Winter Park ers used to have the opportunity to see many of the top baseball players of the world playing practice games in Winter Parks Harper-Shepard Field and in Tinker Field in Orlando. I remember seeing Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmy Foxx, and many others. If I remember correctly, it was saw Jackie Robinson practicing with the Dodgers. All in all, my remembrance of my school days in Winter Park is of a very placid, genteel and proper atmosphere, with hardly any hint of the hustle and bustle of today. There were few policemen, or need for many, and they were highly visible with one whom we all knew standing on a Park Avenue corner downtown. We greeted names as well. Crime was almost non-exis tent here and I honestly do not remember any major crime in all in the years before my 17th birthday. We lived in Forest Hills and I rode my bike some 2 miles to and from WPHS. When we were downtown, my parents left the car keys in the ignition when we got out to shop. And our doors at home awaited us unlocked. Many unsold vacant houses on Aloma and in Forest Hills were left empty and wide-open for anyone at all to inspect. No one uninvited mistreated or disturbed them. As you notice, things were simpler in those days, and in our town people were almost universally simple and honest as well. A bunch of us boys in our early teens used to meet at a drug store that opened wide on the sidewalk of Park Avenue. For a nickel we could get a big root beer and even was a dime and that was stretching our means. The Baby Grand Theater on Park Avenue charged us kids a dime, I think such as Laurel and Hardy, then a newsreel with a generous sampling of football games from all over, and other sports in season. At WPHS the classes held junior and senior dances at the Winter Park Womans Club where local dance bands played for anywhere from $15 to $25 for the whole evening. One of our teachers was always the chaperone, a very nice lady whom all of us boys had the obligation to ask for one dance. On Sundays most of us went to Sunday school and church. Sunday dinner at home was at midday with the family. Sunday afternoons we guys played tennis, golf, or went swimming at Rollins or the Dinky Dock if you liked seeing alligators! One alligator ate my dog Edward! I was in the water a few feet away.Yesteryear here About Roney: HarvardDistinguished Prof, Em.UCF 2004 Fla.
