A vote that would give paid sick leave to employees of busi nesses with 15 or more workers is on the August ballot. The bill would also allow workers to care for sick loved ones for up to 56 hours in a year, built up at a rate of one hour of leave time per 37 hours worked. It would also prevent employees from work while sick. Florida Repub lican lawmakers and Gov. Rick Scott passed a bill to ban such a citizen-fronted ballot initia tive in 2013, rendering this vote toothless unless that ban can be reversed.

Assistant City Manager Mi chelle Del Valle and City Arbor ist Dru Dennison told the Winter Park City Commission that the city plans to remove 2,205 dying years 2014 and 2017 a safety measure to prevent branches from falling on cars and resi dents. But only 934 of those trees will be replaced due to current regu lations, Dennison said, including a minimum planting distance of 6 feet from underground sewer and water lines. Many of the trees set to be re moved sit right up against street intersections as well, clashing with a current regulation that bans the planting of trees within 15 feet of a crossroad.

Winter Park prepares for less-green future City regulations bar Winter Park from replacing dying trees TIM FREED Observer staff Please see TREES on page 11 Maitland City Council mem bers were dreaming big Monday night as they placed a preliminary vote to raise the citys property tax rate just over one mil to 4.9 mills $4.90 per $1,000 of taxable proper ty value up from 3.88 mils where the rate has been since 2007. The increase would cost a Mai tland resident owning a home worth $350,000 with a homestead exemption approximately $306 more on their tax bill next year. Meanwhile, the Winter Park City Commission voted Monday, July 28, to keep tax rates steady at 4.0923 mills where its been for the Maitland Councilwoman Bev Reponen, who proposed the citys rate raise which passed unani mously, said that its time for the city to start asking for the money it really needs to keep up quality services. This is not the time to run on a shoestring, Reponen said. We have so much we want to do over the next couple of years we need to build our nest egg. She said now its up to resi dents to come back and voice their opinions to the city on what theyd rather have: more money for the city to invest into services, or lower taxes.

Voting centers are open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and voters must present a photo and signature ID. TAXES | Final votes come in September we want to have a quality city (to keep the tax rate the same), she said. And I want a quality city. Mayor Howard Schieferdecker agreed that the city should take this time to dream of what it could do with increased tax revenue, present the big picture to residents, and then see what they have to say. We should be dreaming big here and then coming back to this when the residents come back to us, he said. Raising the millage rate to 4.9 mills would bring in an estimated $2 million in additional revenue for Maitland, which could allow the city to draft a budget where no money has to be drawn out from reserves as has been done in re cent years during the recession and more city staff positions can be unfrozen. Of the handful of residents in attendance who spoke up regard ing the proposed tax increase, all said they were in favor of the city taking more money to keep up quality-of-life services in Mai tland. Dream big, resident and Planning and Zoning Commission member Michael Dabby told the Council. Put everything you could possibly need in there, and then whittle it down. The next public hearing regard ing the tax rate in Maitland will be Sept. 8 during the Councils regu larly scheduled meeting. At that meeting, the Council can decide to lower the advertised 4.9 mills tax rate or keep it as is, but Assistant City Manager Sharon Anselmo said, they cant raise it any higher. The Council will host its next bud get workshop, which is open to the public, on Monday, Aug. 4, at 6:30 p.m. in City Council Chambers. C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, July 31, 2014 | Page 7 Lifestyles face hunger and food insecurity every day, and more than 7,200 Orange County Public School stu dents are homeless. Of those 7,200 students, most have a parent in the same situa tion, which doubles the number. Some may have a sibling not in school yet, which triples the num ber, and a family of four quadru ples it. So that 7,200 can quickly swell to 28-30,000 people that are unseen and who are not properly housed or at least precariously housed in our community, said Brent Trotter, president and CEO, Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida. And most likely, those fami lies are not only unsure of where theyll rest their heads at night, but they also dont know if theyll have to do that with an empty stomach, too. [Locals] dont know that right here in our neighborhoods, right here in our community that there are children who are going to bed hungry, there are children who are wondering where their next meal will come, Trotter said.

The FCSL regular season concluded over the weekend. The Sanford River Rats ended the regular season with the leagues best record, edging out the Win ter Park Diamond Dawgs by just one game. The deciding moment in the season rankings may have came on Friday, when the two teams played with just a half game separating them. The Rats came out ahead in that one, 6-2, to give them a decisive advantage head the postseason. The teams had been locked in a two-way battle at the top of the league all season.

The No. 4 and 5 seeds open up the postseason with a one-game play-in game to see who has the right to advance to against the No. 1 seed. This year, the No. 4 seed is the Leesburg Lightning, and the No. 5 seed is the Deland Suns. One of those teams seasons will be over come Wednesday. from Leesburg and Deland, anytime you gotta win to go on its always an exciting game, Sitz said. Along with Sanford, Winter Park, Leesburg and Deland, the the FCSL was the Winter Garden Squeeze. The Squeeze will play round. I think Winter Park and Win ter Garden is gonna be a heck of a series, Sitz said. Both teams are playing good baseball and are very talented teams. The only team not to make the playoffs was the College Park Freedom. The winners of the two bestround will then play in a one game, winner-take-all champion ship at Tropicana Field. Leesburg and Deland are at a disadvantage heading into the playoffs because they have to play each other in the play-in game. But in such a short post season, and with the champion ship itself only being one game, anything can happen. 16-22, good for only fourth in the regular season standings. But they got hot at the right time and ended up winning the postseason championship, defeating Winter Last year Winter Park walked 27-13 and won the regular season championship, they didnt lose a game in the playoffs and even tually defeated Leesburg in the This summers playoffs began with the Leesburg-Deland play-in game on Tuesday night at press time.

Games at Lees burg are not participating in this promotion. Sanford and Winter Park, in their respective series. This means that they will host game one, go on the road for game two, and come back home for the deciding contest if the series requires a third game. After the two series wrap up, Saturday will be an off day before the two playoff winners head to Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg on Sunday, Aug. 3. It should be a great playoffs and then on to Tropicana for the championship, which is another win one game and you win the championship, so it should be an exciting game, Sitz said. Before the Florida League Championship game on Sunday, the Rays have a home game of their own against the Los Angeles Angels. First pitch of that game is scheduled for 1:40 p.m., with the Florida League game scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Attendance is free for the Florida League game, so fans can either purchase a ticket to the MLB game and stick around, or come in once the pros have an hour prior to the start of the game, depending on how long the MLB game takes.

Good design is the one thing Ive always been passionate about, he said. This is what I was meant to do. break as a featured designer on HGTVs First Time Design, a program that gave new designers a chance to show off their skills for a national audience. Following that success, he geles where he spent three years honing his skills, developing his distinct East Coast West Coast hybrid style and learning the art of custom furniture design. Longing for the charms of home, McClain returned to Orlando to set up shop, bringing with him a home design philoso phy he has dubbed kicked-up traditional. Coming back just felt so right, he said.

Nearly all the furniture pieces in the showroom are McClains own designs, featuring clean lines, graceful proportions, and an understated attention to detail. a furniture builder who could tions, said McClain. After a diligent search for just the right manufacturer, he settled on a family-owned business in North Carolina that turn his de signs into one-of-a-kind master works. The pieces are meant to be heirlooms, McClain said, and all come with a lifetime warranty. I want my clients to feel special, to feel like their home is unique, designed just for them, he said. This attention to detail allows him to work in little surprises into his designs, like the time he incorporated a homeowners eclectic magnet collection in a room. McClain is also a big believer in using local artists and crafts men whenever he can. He fre quently hires a local ironworker to craft one-of-a-kind pieces, in cluding the stunning aged pecan and iron shelf in the showroom. I love texture in a room, Mc Clain said. Nearly all the rooms I design feature some sort of me tallic element alongside organic elements like woven wallpaper or natural wood. The style feels edgy, yet sophisticated in a very livable sense. Im constantly reeducating myself and trying new things, McClain said. You have to, to keep it fresh.

Page 10 | Thursday, July 31, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer Are you facing a trip but dont have any place to leave your dog? If you dont have a friend or neighbor, there are two options available to you have a pet sitter come to your home, or board your dog. The main advantage of having a pet sitter is your dog gets to stay in the familiar surroundings of his home. The biggest disadvantage is that many people dont want some one in their home while theyre away. Another disadvantage is your pet is often left alone at home all night. The sitter comes in the eve ning to feed and potty your dog then doesnt return until the next morning. Being alone at home can be very stressful for some animals. If you dont like the idea of a pet sitter, your best option is overnight boarding. In the past, most boarding facilities consisted of side-by-side chain link indoor/outdoor runs. To day, theyre more like resorts offer ing a wide variety of amenities. That being said, all boarding facilities are not alike, even the resort-style ones. What do you need look for to Most important, visit the facility, and make sure you see the whole fa cility. Notice if it looks and smells clean. Ask whats included and what your dog will be do ing during the day. Ideally, you want your dog to have as much time out of his room, being active, playing with other dogs (when appropriate) or playing with staff. If your dog gets adequate exercise and stimulation during the day, he will welcome his nights rest in his room. Also ask for references. Theres a debate about whether you should look for a facility thats staffed all night. Studies actually show that dogs sleep more soundly when no human is around. That be ing said, if youre concerned about your dogs health overnight look for boarding thats staffed 24 hours a day. The bottom line is you need to be comfortable where youre leaving your dog, so youll enjoy your time away and wont worry about your furry friend.

Were limited with how many we can plant. Of the total right-of-way trees years 2013 and 2017, only a third can be replaced. Its a concerning number, said City Commissioner Tom Mc Macken. Were only replacing a third of the trees were taking down, McMacken said. Thats a stag gering number. To say that were going to have two-thirds less trees than we do today, thats not the vision I have for Winter Park. Mayor Ken Bradley said its a number that could have been much worse and that the city will do the best it can to replace the trees. I think the numbers and re movals are far less than I expect ed, Bradley said. Hopefully well work through that. that need to be removed has yet to be determined. City staff in ventoried 300 trees last year after kick-starting its urban forestry management plan. This year theyve put 1,277 trees into their system, adding up to only 1,577 or 6 percent of the citys overall number of right-of-way trees. Dennison said last October that the number of right-of-way trees needing to be removed sat between 10,000 and 13,000 trees. The city had planned to re place many of the trees by getting residents to step up and volun teer to have them planted in their yards, Dennison said. But that hasnt been the case, she said. ally dont want a tree in front of their yard, Dennison said. Its kind of interesting we havent forced the issue. The urban forestry manage ment plan may put a dent in the citys tree canopy for now, City Commissioner Steven Leary said, but removing the dead trees for safety reasons remains the his biggest concern. Well get there; Rome wasnt built in a day Id rather spend the money right now to re move safety issues, Leary said. Theres people getting injured. Theres a tree that fell on Inter around of it and theres a car buried underneath it it wasnt even during a rainy day. Del Valle said the city hopes to complete the tree restoration pro cess within the next seven years. Winter Park would then check up on city trees every four years, she said.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, July 31, 2014 | Page 15 Opinions Chris Jepson Perspectives Philosopher Richard Rorty wrote in his 1989 classic, Contingency, Irony and Solidarity that, About two hundred years ago, the idea that a truth was made rather than found began to take hold of the imagination of Europe. What a grand opening to a book, that truth is a human construct rather than found or revealed in sacred texts (see: Bible, Koran, Torah, Book of Mormon, etc.). I credit my father for not burdening his children with religious dogma fundamen tally at odds with what it means to be a idea of a religious hierarchy, one espous ing received (found) wisdom, laugh ably from a jealous god. The idea of being born with original sin was dismissed as ludicrous. We are born animals in need of a harness that hitches individual initia tive with civic responsibility, rather than saddled with any guilt of having been created sinful. That human beings are religious sur prises no one. I get that. For the past 10,000 or so years, explanations have been offered to understand the inexplicable. Whether it is thunder, drought, pestilence or the upon one another, a god or gods have had a hand in it all. So it is claimed. The enig matic, existential questions of where did we come from and where do we go upon death and why is there anything, well, reli only mans reasoning the past 250 years has meaningfully challenged and success fully repudiated. Unfortunately, yet understandably, the churched consider any challenge to their belief system as an attack on them person ally. I do not care one iota, one whit what anyone personally believes or practices. That is the absolute beauty (freedom) of America. That doesnt mean I suspend judgment. I can go to a public meeting and if someone wants to get up and invoke their deity that those so gathered do good civic work hey, I stand up, yet bottomed Christian Louboutins an aisle over or investment possibilities or what my middle child is doing. Thats right, we shouldnt care what dogma, creed, superstition or principle activates our fellow citizen except when their belief system impinges on the rights of the individual and/or of society to collectively create and implement sound public policy. Two essential questions of our times are, What do we know and how do we know it? If public policy dealing with how we address individual rights as well as how best to structure society is to be effectively formulated, then addressing these two questions is paramount. When invoking your sacred religious vidual rights or thwarting reasoned public policy (see: reproductive rights, Hobby Lobby implications, climate change, our economic system, etc.), then be prepared to have your personal beliefs challenged by those seeking answers to: What do we know and how do we know it? Just the facts, Maam. And, of course, the context. And what next. Rather than claiming the truth (from works. Pragmatism (see: John Dewey and Richard Rorty) is Americas Git-R-Done Philosophy of, in this application, gover nance. It isnt so much interested in what you personally believe as how best can we create a culture that reasonably balances individual creativity (initiative) with, as Rorty puts it, the public project of human solidarity. That is our challenge and it is ting in the way. What do we know? How do we know it? 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! Aristotle said, Man is a political animal. OK, so I admit the animal part, but I dont care much for the political part. hand, which he holds straight-out, palmup as he approaches you. If you are all donated out, the politician will not hang around long. Tell me, why do we elect politicians? Probably because its a good way to get them out of the neighborhood. We send them along to Washington where they meet their brothers under the skin, and there is plenty of skinning going on. The Mer a person engaged in the art and science of government as a profession; 2. a) a person engaged in party politics as a profession, or b) a person primarily interested in political ally short-sighted reasons. The short-sight we have extended to this president never seems quite short enough four years is a hell of a long time to get cooped up with a politician who will never leave until he runs out of time and money. These guys talk about their party a lot, and its party-time for them the minute they hit Washington. If it isnt raining, the Rose Garden is their favorite hang-out, where they pass out a few big bills to visiting pols. chat with a few good looking dames who came in from Keokuk, Iowa, so they can tell fellow clubwomen, Oh!

No questions followed, I thank the good Lord. When a man talks to whether he is going to be kissed or socked. I often answered questions with, There is something in what you say, or, yes, and then again, no as an act of self-defense. Quotes: A hypocrite is the kind of poli tician who would cut down a redwood tree, then mount the stump and make a speech for conservation. Adlai Stevenson Winston Churchill said: Politics is the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didnt happen. Socrates said, I was really too honest a man to be a politician and live! get no respect. The way my lucks running, if I were a politician, Id be honest. Honest guy Barry Goldwater said, Where is the politician who has not who has not proceeded to vote for the very spending projects that make tax-cuts impossible? Newt Gingrich quipped, Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did. John Kennedy said, Let us not seek to responsibility for the future. Mark Twain observed, Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself. Dante said, The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis. But Ma chiavelli in Il Principe said, Politics have no relation to morals. Wise Plato remarked, One of the penal ties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. Fabilist Aesop wrote, We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public Economist Milton Freidman quipped, If you put the federal government in charge a shortage of sand! Alas nothing has changed! But, smart people know when they have said enough, signs off L. Roney. Re: Politicians About Roney: HarvardDistinguished Prof, Em.UCF 2004 Fla. Alliance for the Arts award (Assisted by beautiful wife Joy Roney) On Nov. 4, Flo ridians will vote on Amendment 2 to the state constitution. If passed, the amend ment would allow the use of medical mari juana for conditions for which a physician believes the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the potential health risks for the patient. The amendment language also calls for the state Department of Health to institute program for patients and their caregiv ers as well as regulate the sale of medi cal marijuana and its related products. In other states that have adopted similar amendments, medical marijuana has been prescribed primarily for stress and pain ailments. Amendment 2 is similar to ballot initia tives that legalized medical marijuana in other states. In 1996, Proposition 215 made legalize medical marijuana. While some local governments moved quickly to implement limits on medical marijuanarelated businesses, others, most notably the city of Los Angeles, waited too long to implement regulations with disastrous results. In 2005, Los Angeles was home to four medical marijuana dispensaries. By 2007 that number had grown to approxi number of dispensaries in Los Angeles skyrocketed. By 2012, an estimated 700 to 1,000 dispensaries were operating within city limits. While the city has tried several approaches to limit the number of dispen saries operating within its borders, to date they have been ineffective. At my urging, Orange County is taking proactive action to prepare for the poten tial passage of Amendment 2. In May, I requested that the Board of County Com missioners discuss the potential issues that could arise should Amendment 2 pass. County works to weed out medical marijuana Ted Edwards Commissioners Corner The board discussed the topic during our meeting on June 3, including prohibiting use of medical marijuana in public and regulating the growth and sale of medical marijuana. County staff is working on an ordinance that will be brought to the board for a work session in late July. Public hear ings on the ordinance would be held as early as September. Many local governments across the state have begun to prepare for the amend ments passage including Maitland, Edge wood, Mount Dora, Cocoa Beach, Palmet to, Flagler Beach, and the Town of Ponce Inlet. These ordinances share several core components. They limit medical marijuana dispensaries to a single zoning district, restrict medical marijuana cultivation, pro hibit loitering in and around dispensaries, ban drive-through service, limit hours of operation, and forbid alcohol on premises. They also include separation distances from facilities such as pain clinics, schools, churches, day cares, public parks, and other medical marijuana dispensaries. I hope that an Orange County ordi nance will incorporate good ideas from other municipalities draft ordinances as well as limit the public consumption of medical marijuana, particularly in our important tourist corridor. While bans on tobacco and alcohol consumption exist in state statute and the county code, no such ban on the consumption of medical mari juana exists. Denver, Colo., attempted to pass such an ordinance in 2013 but failed to do so due to public outcry. Our proac tive action will ensure that Orange County does not face the same problems that have plagued local governments in other states. I will do everything that I can to pre vent the potential passage of Amendment 2 from negatively impacting our commu nity. If you have any other questions or concerns about medical marijuana or any other issue facing Orange County, please feel free to contact me or my staff, Edgar Robinson and Lynette Rummel.
