B1 Winter Park might be on the verge of regulating medical mar ijuana before this years general election. Mayor Ken Bradley brought up the issue of legalization dur ing last Mondays City Commis sion meeting, hoping to better prepare the city in advance and help decide Winter Parks course of action regarding further regu lations. Bradley said he met with the Orange County Council of May ors on July 25 to discuss the po tential distribution and sale of medical marijuana if it passes on the state ballot this November. There are a lot of questions that are going to be coming from this, Bradley said at the Winter Park City Commission meeting last Monday. If this passes, for example, can a person smoke marijuana in a public park? Where could this be dispensed and how would it be dispensed? A potential medical marijuana ordinance is already in the works in Orange County, Bradley said. Winter Park wouldnt be re quired to pass regulations of its own if the county takes action, but the city can still pass its own ordinance, he said. I guess we could take some thing thats more restrictive than the county, but were not obligat Bradley said. Maitland took a step toward a medical marijuana ordinance of its own back in April. The legis lation would regulate the sale of medical marijuana to only one zoning district in the entire city. A single building sits in that zoning district, located just across the street from the Mait land Police station. This is an effective way of do ing it without saying its prohib ited, because its not, Maitland City Attorney Cliff Shepard said during the City Council meet ing on April 28. The zoning rules would help the city protect itself, he said, preparing Maitland for state regulations in advance. The ordinance will go before Maitlands Planning and Zon ing Commission on Aug. 21, said PHOTO COURTESY OF SXC.HU Medical marijuana may enjoy 88 percent approval by Florida voters in a recent poll, but not with Winter Parks mayor, who said that he would be voting against it in November.

Page 2 | Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer MARIJUANA | Mayor plans to vote against medical marijuana legalization amendment in November MEMORIAL | Teen has spent months on project that will be a centerpiece to Central Parks rose garden Community Development Direc tor Dick Wells. Bradley told the City Commis sion that he personally doesnt support the legalization of medi cal marijuana in Florida, saying that he plans on voting no on the statewide November amend ment. I, for one, dont want to wake up and walk down Park Avenue and Central Park and realize people are smoking marijuana, Bradley, who is also the CEO of said. I dont think that would be good for our citizens. But Bradleys stance would sit in overwhelming minority ac cording to a study done by Quin nipiac University in Connecticut last month. The study shows that 88 percent of Florida voters sup port legalized marijuana for med ical use. the statue as his Eagle Scout proj ect last fall a year after Elizabeth passed away at the age of 13 in December 2012. The Winter Park scout wasted no time when he kicked off his fundraising in May, spreading the word and raising $3,200 in just the John Michael now sees light at the end of the tunnel, closing in on a tribute he hopes will bring heal ing to Elizabeths family. I know Mr. and Mrs. Buckley are still having a hard time, John Michael said. I hope this gives them that hope back. Support came from every di rection when John Michael began his effort to immortalize Eliza beths memory in bronze. Bishop wrote a check for $1,000 to sup port the campaign, while St. Mar garet Mary Catholic School took donations from students and raised $2,000. Local Winter Park businesses stepped as well, such as Peter brooke Chocolatier, who now sells chocolate peacocks to support the cause. A dollar from every pur chase goes toward bringing the fountain to its future home in Central Park. Clyde Moore, the man behind the I LUV Winter Park social media persona, is taking a similar approach, selling peacock-themed T-shirts to help move the project forward. Its just amazing how gener ous everyone is in this city, John Michael said. Im so thankful. John Michaels friendship with Elizabeth dates back to their year of kindergarten at St. Margaret Mary Catholic School. The scout remembers Elizabeths curious nature and enthusiasm in the classroom, but most of all recalls her love for peacocks. Drawings of the colorful bird in colored pencil covered the 13-year-olds bedroom walls and on her balcony sported a painted peacock feather with the words love life written below. She would love it, said Eliza beths mother, Pamela, gazing at a photograph of the fountain that would embody her daughters memory and sprit. Elizabeths father Martin said its encouraging to see the project come so far, though he realizes theres still more fundraising to be done. Its immensely gratifying to us to see the project come closer to fruition, Martin said. The project is very near and dear to our hearts, and its not just be cause its in Elizabeths memory, its John Michaels commitment to this project and the hard work that hes put into it. Its extremely touching, be cause it speaks volumes to what a Elizabeth had such an impact on him that hed be willing to under take this project and stick to it. John Michael plans to start sell ing wrist bands next week to sup port the project, hoping to have the fountain placed by November.

Orlando SOUP, modeled after the successful Detroit SOUP that started four years ago, is a microgranting community dinner offer ing local activists, entrepreneurs and creatives a platform for net working and an opportunity to win funding for projects. If Orlando wants to grow, it has to retain talented, creative people stay here, do it here, said Julia Young, an organizer of the SOUP and executive director of the Urban Think Foundation, a and support creative projects. She said the pitches that are chosen to present from the pool of appli cants are ones that have a biggest impact on the entire local commu nity instead of a single group of people. Youngs upbringing is rooted in multiple neighborhoods within Orlando: she grew up in down town, went to high school in Col lege Park and lives in Audubon Park. She loves the variety of places around town, frequenting Bikes, Beans & Bordeaux for lunch and Park Avenue for dinner. When one project grows in a neighborhood, another may made easier to connect [to differ ent neighborhoods] and now its easier to connect them with each other. Community members who wish to spearhead an original project apply to present their pitch at the dinner. Presenters showcase their ideas with nothing but raw, tangible visuals and a four-minute speech no PowerPoint. Attend ees then vote for the projects that resonate with them the most. The winning project receives the funds made from the evening. There has been plenty of for ward movement with the creative, local, small-scale enterprises in the Winter Park area and surrounding neighborhoods, said Andi Perez, Yelp Orlando community manag er and Orlando SOUP organizer.

It also seemed to knock out a bit of the power from both teams bats, as the Rats, who had scored 23 runs in the past two games combined, only plated three until the bottom of the ninth, and the Dawgs, typi cally given to torrents of runs in a single inning, only saw trickles. But the Rats three early runs gave them the lead for the major ity of the game until the Dawgs found their bats again in the sixth inning and got help from two er rors to take the a lead theyd never relinquish.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014 | Page 15 Opinions Chris Jepson Perspectives If women be educated for dependence; that is, to act according to the will of another fallible being, and submit, right or wrong, to power, where are we to stop? Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley One of my many liberal Facebook friends, a woman, an individual Ive known since college in the s, posted the following, A woman voting Republican is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders. It made me laugh out loud. Ive been consistently reading history for 50 years and one observation, nay, one take-away conclusion, is that women, historically speaking, have had an exceed ingly tough slog of it. To the degree that happinessits meaning evolvinghas been the female experience was no doubt inextricably linked to 1) general environ mental conditions (war, famine, drought, societal structure, etc.), and 2) the men (fathers and husbands) they experienced while living. Since mankind started organizing into cities, male hierarchies (often theocrati cally based) determined that women were substantively inferior to men and put in place laws (restrictions) governing their movement, their right to own property as well as their ability to participate in gov ernance, etc. We can argue over why this occurred but we cannot deny that that was essentially the female condition up to the 19th century. Of course, there are historical examples of exceptional women rising to prominence, but I believe we can all agree their exception proves the rule. The Western trajectory toward indi vidual freedom is one we all applaud. Just bear in mind that such freedom was for men. I use the example of awarding the right to vote to newly emancipated slaves at the conclusion of the American Civil War in 1865. It took another 55 years for American women to achieve comparable equality with freed slaves. Women, in other words, were determined less capable of participating in the American experi ment than recently liberated illiterate male Of course we recognize today the inher ent unfairness of discriminating on the basis of ones sex. As advertised in 1968, Youve come a long way, baby. Indeed. Yet there remains (at least) one major women and it can be framed by asking one simple question: Does the individual woman own her own body or not? This gets wrapped-up in the emotional issues of sexuality, fertility and reproduc tion. Again, this (sex) has been an histori cal consideration when men structured society so as to limit female mobility and accessibility. To suggest otherwise depicts historical ignorance. I am pro-choice because to be otherwise is to be anti-female. I, for one, believe hu man life begins at conception. It is intellec tually disingenuous to argue the obvious. Rather, the issue on the table is, Who is to control an individual womans body? The woman herself or the state? No self-respecting man would ever allow the state to regulate his scrotum, so why advocate that a womans uterus is public property, subject to government oversight and regulation? Ill be damned if I would ever insist any woman do any thing but what she alone determines is best for her. The issue of reproductive rights is part of a long historical continuum of freedom and equality for women, of which the Re publican Party and its historically ignorant minions are most decidedly on the wrong side. Feminist Mary Wollstonecraft quite reasonably asked, Where are we to stop? I suggest here. Now. Women, vote as if your freedom de pends on it and support Planned Parent Voting for Colonel Sanders Jepson is a 27-year resident of Central Florida.

The stone fences in New Eng land came from farmers clearing their land and putting stones along the borderlines.

If I were to begin to recollect all that is worthy coming from the instillation of I would be rewriting Much Ado About Nothing. Imaginary borders in our minds help us divide our thoughts into useful consequence, as fences or walls separate our lands from those of our neighbors. able. It creates a world without borders and makes us aware of the limitations of our present politics to meet its chal lenges. When President Obamas spoke in campaign speeches about fundamentally transforming America, I experienced a cold shudder. People who wish to change our Constitution fundamentally (something which was never dared by Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, and the rest of the Founders) are not hesitant about plunging us into their brand of chaos. America will always use its Constitution, which allows for changes through the ages and has provided for them by amendments that can add mate rial without altering the original. Mr. President, you are the one who extended the invitation to the thousands of young sters who are now invading our U.S. borders some of whom may, perhaps, be members of drug cartels and even may be carriers of dangerous diseases. Then you simply walked away from them, and the problem. Are you going personally to send them back home or are you going to provide them, at our expense, with hous ing, schooling, health care, and jobs, that will carry them far into the foreseeable fu ture as U.S. citizens and make all those good things scarcer for us present-day important entities: culture, language and borders.

So why does the city operate in such a knowledge vacuum much unlike a corporation answerable to stock holders? Because they see it all as a free ride. So to spin the Winter Park Chambers ing its support for a new local sales tax this desire should be dubbed The Free Ride Bummer. Now just imagine if Winter Park had to underwrite any or all of new night and weekend SunRail service. It doesnt take much imagination. You just have to look at vative the city is in its current quest for a new library using only city (and donated) funds. Wanna bet additional service would remain a daydream if it must be self-funded? But the worst part for me is the coming true of just what we all expected and a violation of one of my lifes tenets: never go back to the well a second time. All the local pols knew that all they had to do was get a foot in the commuter rail door. So now we see appeals for expensive quiet zones and added service which always waited on a railroad sidetrack. Just wait until the seven-year state subsidy of SunRail operating costs expires and get out your wallets.

Thats akin to public trial, and then they hang you.

Of course, the Council can raise the taxes with as adults and do the following. out all the dirty laundries that have put us in this position. We know of one from audio recordings of a meeting that one of the council members said of the downtown develop area, We are taking a big gamble. That big gamble was with your money, and it failed miserably. We have been paying half a million dollars per year for that mistake. So bring out all the laundry, not with politi cal rhetoric, but real words and description. Then list all the actions that have taken place to prevent it from happening again. The Council has proven over the years they dont know how to handle our money. So instead of a whopping 25 percent increase, why dont you go for a 6 percent increase? Then have an independent group review how money management is proceed ity incrementally. Of course, the Council can dispense with all the laundry and just put it up for a vote by the citizens.

Send email to 2013 King Features Synd. Inc. The dark side of some cholesterol medication Most Older People Have DiverticulosisDEAR DR. DONOHUE:I am a 78-year-old female,active and in good health or so I thought. I eat right and never smoked or drank alcohol. Yesterday,a colonoscopy showed severe diverticulosis. The doctor prescribed Benefiber,then left and never returned. I am stunned. What do I do now? Will I have this forever? Am I unhealthy? How does one develop diverticulosis? What the difference between osisand itis? S.K. ANSWER:Your world isnt collapsing. Youre healthy. Youll have diverticulosis forever. By age 60,half of the people in North America have it. By age 80,two-thirds have it. A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colons muscular wall to its outer surface. A diverticulum looks like a small soap bubble. Its only 1/5 to 2/5 inches (0.5 to 1 cm) in diameter. You can thank our diet for diverticulosis. We refine flour and throw away its bran the outer coat of grain. In countries where whole grains (including the bran) are commonly used,diverticulosis is a rarity. Bran and other fiber hold water in undigested food. Without fiber,the food residue dries and becomes hard. The colon muscles have to generate a great deal of force to keep it moving. That force causes the colon lining to pop through the colon wall as a diverticulum. For most,diverticulosis is a silent condition that remains silent for life. For a few,the diverticulum breaks and causes a local infection in the colon diverticulitis. The pain of a diverticulitis attack is usually felt in the lower left corner of the abdomen, and sometimes people have fever and chills along with the pain. The attack is treated by resting the tract and by giving antibiotics. Were supposed to get 30 grams of fiber a day. Fruits (especially those with edible skins),many vegetables and whole-grain products are the source of dietary fiber. If people cannot get enough fiber in their diet,then commercial products like the one youre taking fill the gap. Metamucil, Perdiem,Citrucel and Fiberall are other examples. The booklet on diverticulosis explains the ins and outs of this very common disorder. To order a copy, write:Dr. Donohue No. 502W,Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipients printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE:My husband has chronic blepharitis and frequently develops hard buildups in both eyes that cause great discomfort. The doctor must remove them two times a month. What can be done to prevent them? S.R. ANSWER:Blepharitis (BLEF-uhRYE-tiss) is inflammation of the eyelid margins,which become red and crusty. The crust can build up into hard deposits. A twice-a-day program of lid cleansing might eliminate the crusts. Have your husband apply warm compresses (a wet washcloth) to closed lids for five to 10 minutes and then massage the lids. After the massage,he cleanses the lid margins with a cotton-tipped applicator dipped in a solution of one part baby shampoo and one part water. The doctor might have to prescribe an antibiotic ointment. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475,Orlando,FL 328536475.2009 North America Synd.,Inc. All Rights Reserved How Does Your Hospital Rate?It really DOES matter what hospital you go to when you need care. Your life could depend on it. So says the seventh annual study by HealthGrades. This is the same group that tracks doctors,hospitals and nursing homes and assigns a grade for the level of care. Its latest study reveals that your risk of death can be cut as much as 27 percent if you get your care at a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence.To get that designation,a hospital has to pass a long list of criteria. The HealthGrades Web site [] lists by state all of the Distinguishedhospitals. You can search (for free) for grades on a given hospital for any of dozens of medical conditions. Look for Research Hospitals on the front screen of the Web site. Its when you want a full report on a hospital that you have to pay a fee. Youll also have to pay a fee to check out a specific doctor or nursing home it costs money for the report. A much easier way to check on a hospital or doctor is on the governments Health and Human Services website [www.hospitalcompare.hhs .gov]. The HHS layout lets you compare multiple hospitals,right on the same screen. The information is very comprehensive,too. For example,one question concerns the percent of surgery patients who were given an antibiotic at the right time,within one hour before surgery. This is a small detail maybe,but crucial to ones recovery. To find out if there is a Distinguishedhospital in your area,check the HealthGrades Web site and then search for details at the HHS site. Still,if youre facing a major medical issue,perhaps paying for the HealthGrades report would give you needed extra information.
