Incumbents dominate in local election landslides Few upsets in more than a dozen races ISAAC BABCOCK Observer staff Winter Park residents against higher density development were relieved after a unanimous vote to not pass a controversial change to the comprehensive plan Monday. The amendment would have allowed planned developments larger, mixed-use projects to be constructed on any four lane road outside the box of Fairbanks, In terlachen, Pennsylvania and Web ster avenues. The City Commission reasoned that the city should hold off on looking at planned development until their upcoming visioning process, expected to take between nine and 12 months. That period would set the tone for future development in the city, according to city staffs recommendation. This has been an interesting discussion, Mayor Ken Bradley said following the vote. There needs to be peace and calm and we need to listen to our citizens thats certainly all that went into my thinking. Residents applauded the City Commissions decision, but that doesnt mean the density signs are coming down just yet. We still have to be vigilant, resident Marty Sullivan said.

Page 2 | Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer TRADER JOES | Parking to expand Director Jeff Briggs said. Construction for the Blue Cross/Blue Shield clinic halted recently when the city revoked cupancy due to a lack of off-site parking for employees. On Mon day Unicorp offered a temporary solution: an unmarked, 28-car lot acquired from the Hillstone Restaurant just south of the Winter Park Lakeside to make up for 21 required spac es. Its all an ef fort to get the ished and free up the parking, Unicorp President Chuck Whittall said. We do have 36 spaces that are not being utilized right now [out side the clinic], Whittall said. We have about 13 construction vehicles daily there.We want to The Winter Park City Com mission voted by a count of 3-2 to allow construction but not occupancy on the condition solution to the parking shortage, as opposed to a temporary, un marked lot. Whittall said that permanent parking would be acquired when Unicorps potential deal for the Mt. Vernon Inn property closes later this year. But City Commissioner Sarah Sprinkel said she felt concern over residents having to cross U.S. Highway 17-92 to get from that property to the Lakeside plaza. I didnt want people cross ing 17-92 to park and then walk across, Sprinkel said. Thats a dangerI dont consider that a good permanent solution. Whittall assured that he study conducted on the intersec tion to see how to make crossing the street safer. City Commis sioner Carolyn Cooper, who vot ed against grant ing permission along with Mayor Ken Bradley, said she feared that moving forward without a per manent solution would trap the City Commission down the road. Every time we make a tem porary decision, we move further down the road to Blue Cross/ Blue Shield investing quite a bit of money into moving things to the interior of the building, Cooper said. Im assuming were talking MRIs and X-Ray equipmentThe more further down the road that we go, the more we are boxing ourselves in to having to approve whatever solution. Whittall said Unicorp will move their permanent parking so lution another step forward with in the next two weeks, submitting a development proposal for the Mt. Vernon Inn property to the citys planning and zoning board. C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE Saturday, September 6, 2014 My Heart. My Life.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014 | Page 5 Maitland City Talk BY HOWARD SCHIEFERDECKER MAYOR FY 2015 General Fund Budget On Monday, Sept. 8, the City public meetings required to adopt Final adoption of the citys FY 2015 budget and millage rate is scheduled for Sept. 22. Both public meetings will be held in the City Hall Council Chambers at 6:30 p.m. Many steps were taken to ensure citizen participation in the budget process, including hold ing advisory board meetings to discuss the Capital Improvements Program (CIP) and establish time lines for the improvements, three budget workshops and a strategic planning session. In July, the City Council adopted a proposed op erating millage rate of 4.90 mills, which was communicated to tax payers via the property tax notices mailed by the Orange County Property Appraiser in August. At 4.90 mills, the citys operat ing millage would generate $9.2 million in ad valorem tax revenue. Ad valorem tax is the single larg est revenue for the city, account ing for approximately 39 percent of total revenues. Like most com munities in Florida, Maitland de-valuation, and the citys cur rent taxable value is just over $2 billion (19 percent less than the high of $2.5 billion in FY 2009). In creasing the millage rate from the current rate of 3.88 to 4.90 mills generates an additional $1.9 mil additional funds would be used to balance the budget without and would include the following budget recommendations: restor time positions that remain frozen (unfunded) from previous budget reduction efforts; upgrading a po sition from part-time to full-time ware; adding new equipment to the Fleet Division to reduce man hours and outsourcing of repairs; and installing an entry feature on South Orlando Avenue. eral Fund budget totals just under $24 million, which is 6 percent more than FY 2014 original bud get. The budget supports our pri mary business of providing core municipal services such as police streets, parks, physical properties, computers, vehicles, equipment, reational programming; building construction review; and admin istrative services including plan and personnel administration. In addition to providing core servic es, this budget focuses on several Council members in their strategic planning session. These initiatives include increasing communication with citizens, implementing the downtown and west side master plans, improving transportation in Maitland, increasing legislative advocacy, and maintaining quality public safety programs. also provides for $1.5 million in capital improvement projects for FY 2015. These capital projects in clude: $250,000 for FlexBus imple mentation; $358,000 in city-wide sidewalk improvements; $311,000 in street repair and paving proj ing upgrades; $152,000 in citywide facility upgrades; $120,000 in entry feature and street-scape; and $200,000 in park upgrades and re furbishments.

Felicia Ryersons days lectur ing at the blackboard are behind her. Today the teacher embraces and excels at providing educa tion enabled from another kind of board no chalk or erasers needed. Although she no longer spends her days in the classroom instructing elementary schoolers, Felicia Ryerson said she always keeps in mind lessons learned in the classroom when shes clack ing out virtual school lesson plans from behind a keyboard. The lessons she learned as an she now prepares other teach ers to enter the sometimes alienseeming world of virtual educa tion. Teaching in a virtual envi ronment is very different from the classroom, but Ive found the same principles apply in both worlds, Ryerson said. Currently the Chief Learn School, Ryerson has been there to promote the school and now helping to develop new teachers. For her efforts with Florida Virtual School, Ryerson was in ducted into the United States Dis tance Learning Association Hall of Fame in May. Ryerson helped develop train ing modules at FLVS to introduce teachers to the world of virtual begin as students. New teachers with the district comed by a team member just as teachers are encouraged to do with their new students. Then, just like their future students, class online, learning how to nav igate the systems and discovering hang-ups inherent with virtual education. Its just as important, if not more so, for online teachers to get to know their students. In the classroom this happens naturally, in the online world, teachers have to develop communication skills that allow them to ask questions and establish trust with their stu dents, Ryerson said. Its not uncommon, she said, for teachers and students to ex change stories about what they did on the weekend or over vaca tion breaks. For instance, teachers might ask a student how the football game they attended was or share some of their own vacation pic tures as a way to connect with students, she said. Once new teachers assume their roles, they work one-on-one with students and their families, so establishing a bond built on trust is important. Students need to feel like they can share their challenges with their teachers, Ryerson said. Part of virtual education in volves live sessions conducted by teachers with one or more stu dents. Teachers can use these live sessions to teach in fun and differ ent ways. Many teachers run mini-con tests during the live sessions, allowing students to compete against each other for prizes or bragging rights. Some will even set up virtual game nights online, just for fun. They give teachers and students a chance to interact outside of the virtual classroom, just as game day in traditional classrooms gives students a chance to bond with their teacher. Teachers are also encouraged to volunteer to represent FLVS at various community events such as Taste of Oviedo. This allows them the chance to interact with the community and meet poten tial students and families face-toface. Teachers who volunteer have also invited their current students to seek them out at such events, to introduce themselves in the real world. Ryerson said that bridging the gap between traditional class room instruction and virtual in struction is vital to the success of not only the teachers and stu dents, but also FLVS itself. Very early on FLVS recognized the need for ongoing teacher sup port and began their partnership with the United States Distance Learning Association. Ryerson and her team have been called upon as consultants to help other schools set up their virtual classrooms and training programs. Today pre-service teachers interested in becoming virtual schoolteachers can now do a por tion of their required internship through the University of Central Floridas College of Education. This past year, 180 pre-service teachers completed online intern ships. Aside from its rapid growth, the one thing that has surprised Ryerson most about online edu cation are the opportunities for students and teachers to build re lationships. The key to students success is the teachers ability to meet students where they are, Ryer son said. We are here to facilitate that.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014 | Page 7 The Knights have won their last eight season openers, regard less of where, when, and against whom. But theyve never done it in Ireland. And theyve never done it against Penn State. And theres never been a volcano in volved. What looms ahead this coming Saturday is one of the most an ticipated season starts in program history, if only for the novelty alone. Theyll kick off at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time in Dublins Croke Park. Over there itll be 1:30 p.m. Irish Standard Time just about right for a Saturday afternoon kickoff. The opponent is a familiar one. In their most successful season in team history en route to a 12-1 record last year, the Knights won eight of their games by a margin of 10 points or less. Their 34-31 Sept. 14 upset of Penn State in University Park, Pa., will likely go down as one of the greatest. Quarterback Blake Bortles would throw for 288 yards and three touchdowns to lead his team to the win. By the time that season was over, the Knights were ranked No. 10/12 in the nation depending on which poll you looked at, attain ing that rank only after obliterat ing Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl. Take a look at the polls today and despite not having played a game since the most storied bowl victory in school history, the Knights have dropped out of the rankings entirely, likely helped largely by the early exodus to the NFL by Bortles. Against a Penn State team that returns its star quarterback, the Knights will have a brand new one in Pete DiNovo, the standout who set Pinellas County records in high school. No UCF fresh man QB has ever started a season opener since Daunte Culpepper. The game is already predicted to be one of the top-10 games on NCAA footballs opening week end by the sports blog SBNation. com, putting a spotlight on a game that features a new quarter back for UCF, a new head coach for Penn State, and a possible vol cano getting in the way. The Bardarbunga volcano in central Iceland is threatening air travel as it has caused alerts to hover between red (indicating imminent or current eruption) and orange (meaning a heighten ing potential for eruption) and could cause the games location to change continents. That unprec edented action could mean that the exotic game on the Emerald Isle that UCF and Penn State had been hyping since June of last year could end up being played at UCFs Bright House Stadium. The date of the game at this time is not expected to change, even if the location does, according to UCF Iceland is no stranger to highhave grounded a hemispheres Eyjafjallajokull volcano caused canceled when it erupted, sending ash clouds into the stratosphere and threatening jet engine dam age. Stranger things than even a game-changing volcano have happened to the Knights in the last 12 months, following a sea son that hinged on games won by back-to-back fumble recovery touchdowns, 10 points scored in 66 seconds in another capped off by one of the greatest touch down catches in NCAA history and an improbable goal line stand in yet another wild win. Theyll enter the Penn State receiving corps with a cumula tive 7,000-plus yards receiving in their careers. And on the ground, theyll have William Stanback, whos angling to be the next Kev in Smith with highlight reel plays of his own. Looking for a place to watch the game nearby?

Page 8 | Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer The end of summer brings both anxiety and excitement for chil dren. A new school year provides many expectations: new teachers, new classes, new classmates, and new challenges. To help your child navigate tial chaos, its important to help students gather all of the tools they need to prepare for the year ahead and be organized for class assignments. Parents can suggest methods to help keep their chil dren organized, like calendars, to-do lists, and task notebooks. If your child is already using digital tools, show him or her how to use digital organizer apps. Here at Trinity Prep, our oneto-one program encourages the use of technology for education by requiring all eighth to 12th grad ers to bring a laptop to school. This transition to using a digital device can be overwhelming, but and access to online resources. We work to build students skills in this area before they start eighth grade by using computers as class resources. All students receive an Evernote account to assist stu dents with online note taking and organization. Its important to hold your children accountable for meet ing deadlines and taking care of their own belongings, while also their own ability to manage their assignments. Check your chil drens homework, but resist the tendency to correct mistakes, thus placing the responsibility on your children to complete the assign ment and strengthening their own problem-solving skills. Students are involved in so many activities, and they look to ing that elusive balance between school, rest and fun. With exten sive commitments, students may overextend themselves, which can increase anxiety. As a parent, make sure you arent adding to your childs anxiety. Rather than asking your children what grade they received on an exam or quiz, ask them what they learned and how they can do better next time. The research is clear: students are not getting enough sleep. This can have devastating effects on a childs health and performance in school. It is up to parents to set guidelines at the start of the school year about a students cient time to sleep and enough unscheduled time to have fun. Unscheduled time plays a strong role in a childs development, just as sleeping and studying do. To help your children sleep adequately, make sure they do not have digital distractions at bedtime. Keep the computer or laptop in a central location in the home, outside of the bedroom. Similarly, require your child to charge other gadgets, like mobile phones or iPads, throughout the night in a family room or kitchen. Avoid television an hour before disturb natural sleep rhythms. When parents and schools work together, children can have a productive and enjoyable edu cational experience. The anxieties from the start of the school year will quickly dissipate.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014 | Page 9 The students, each in crisp white lab coats and protective goggles, wear a look of intense concentration as they conduct ex periments on a tiny piece of their own DNA. Theyre surrounded by high-tech equipment, on the labs cool black countertop sits a sculpture of a DNA strand a col orful twist of polka-dots and in needed to extract data from their own. You really felt like a scien senior at Wekiva High School. It made me appreciate science a lot more. I knew I liked science, but this really kind of opened my eyes to what it would be like to be in a real lab. nine other Central Florida high school stu dents spent a week this sum mer in a Rollins College lab after anatomy and physiology. The stu dents participated as part of the Upward Bound program, which helps prepare students for college who are either from low-income of their family headed to college to attain a four-year degree. Many tional program more than doubles the chances that these students will graduate. They help you kind of branch out and open up your mind to dif ferent opportunities that are out really help open up your eyes and put what your dreams and your goals, they help you reach those and put them in front of you, you just have to be willing to do the footwork to get there. Dr. Susan Walsh, an assistant professor of biology at Rollins, led the class in their experiments, which were made possible by a COMPASS Outreach grant she re ceived from American Society for Cell Biology. She not only hopes this program keeps the teens in terested in college, but encour ages those who have an existing passion for science. Those who hope to continue in science get more excited and get their hands dirty, she said. Its that explo ration. The students were taught how to isolate and test a piece of their DNA that research has shown is an indicator for how a person metabolizes caffeine. The gene, CYP1A2, decides if a person is a fast or slow processor of caffeine. If youre fast, caffeine doesnt af fect you very much, if youre slow, a cup of coffee could really ruin a nights sleep, Walsh said. to behavior, so a lot of us know that if we drink a cup of coffee before bed are we going to sleep or not, and so that can give you some indication as to whether you think you might be a fast or slow metabolizer, Walsh said. So people who are fast, like myself, can drink coffee and then fall right to sleep, but people who are slow are going to be up all night long. To conduct the experiment, the of salt water solution for a minute, spit it into a test tube and placed it into a centrifuge so that it could begin to spin their DNA out of the solution. Then they were left with a creamy clump of their DNA, by the centrifuge forces. There were more steps: a detergent was added to multiply and magnify the microscopic piece of DNA ex tracted, blue dye was added and the DNA was placed into a gel, an enzyme extract was the last step to see if the one gene they worked to inspect would cut in two or not. If it did, they were a slow metabo lizer, if it didnt, they were fast. Walsh and some other fac ulty members at Rollins College have gotten a 23andMe kit done, which gives detailed information about their DNA. They will then perform the same experiment the Upward Bound students did and then compare their results to their actual DNA information to prove the effectiveness of the lab experi ment. Walsh already knows that the experiment results match up to her DNA information shes a fast metabolizer. But, DNA doesnt tell all. In the past several years weve learned that genetics is even less determining because all of that can be altered by your environ ment, Walsh said. Things like stress, things like nutrition, any of that could also have a big effect on overriding what your genes say. And drinking lots of coffee each day could make you less af Is coffee in your DNA?

Page 10 | Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer Stress is a normal part of life for all of us, including our dogs. Some types of stress are a good for you, while other forms are not. While most people recog nize the more obvious signs that their dog is anxious or fright ened, its much more difcult to detect the subtle signs of stress. Why should you learn to recognize subtle indicators of stress in your dog? Because youll not only help your dog live a more relaxed and emo tionally healthy life, but youll stop potential problems before they escalate into something serious like a bite. Most people whose dogs have bitten never recognized the stress signals the dog was giving off long be fore he bit. What are some of the subtle signs of stress?

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014 | Page 15 Opinions King Features Weekly ServiceAugust 25, 2014 EDITORIAL CARTOONS Chris Jepson Perspectives Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils When I think of Charlie Crist as Floridas governor, I am reminded of the famous Lewis Carroll line from Alice in Wonderland, Contrariwise, continued Tweedledee, If it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isnt, it aint. Thats logic. Hmmm? Floridians are being asked to again choose Rick Scott for governor, the alleged rags-to riches right-wing ideologue busi nessman whose company (Columbia/HCA) was care and Medicaid fraud, We have the choice of the Sergeant Schultz I-KnowNothing Republican grifter for governor (Rick Scott), or the MotherOf-All-Quick-Change-Artists, the equivo cating, slippery, today-Im-a-Democrat opportunist (Charlie Crist). Florida confronts a choice between a grifter and a conman. How can this be? How could Florida Scott, a businessman who could not even oversee the honest dealings of his own corporation? And to this day refuses to adequately explain his role in that monu mental fraud. How blind is the Florida electorate? Is the electorate equally blind to Charlie Crists history of donning a weather-vane the air to see which way the wind is blow ing of his unvarnished B.S., of telling whatever to whomever? If you want an accurate accounting of Charlie Crist, I heartily recommend that you read the exhaustive Aug. 8, 2014 staff writers Adam C. Smith and Michael Kruse. They interviewed more than 100 individuals, presenting a balanced portrait of a superb politician with my take-away the supple backbone of a nematode. To quote from the Times article on Crist, People hear what they want to hear, he [Crist] would say. Or, I meant it when I said it. I hear you loud and clear, Charlie. What is a Florida Democrat to do? The next governor will appoint four Florida Supreme Court judges (mandatory retire ment at age 70). Do we want judges who will curtail a womans right to own her own body, who determine that a womans uterus is state property subject to govern ment oversight? There will be environmen tal issues, school funding determinations, tax fairness debates, growth-management decisions, lobbying reform, congressional district lawsuits, and on and on and on. Unfortunately for Florida, Campaigning has always had more allure to him [Crist] than the governing, according to So where does any of this leave Flor ida voters? We will be asked to vote for governor and make a decision between a Republican we know is sympathetic to cor porate special interests, who will do their bidding on any tax equity initiatives as well as blocking business and environmen tal regulations. Scott is a Republican who, given the chance, would sell the keys of corporate raiders, a Republican who genu cause the gubernatorial alternative, Charlie Crist, is a Democrat in name only. He is an opportunistic, glad-handing political mendicant bereft of consistent values and positions, a shape-shifting conman. Do we bet the governors mansion on the grifter (Tweedledum) we know or the conman (Tweedledee) we only think we know? Some choice. No amount of bathing could ever wash the stink off this election. The choice for governor: Tweedledum or Tweedledee? Jepson is a 27-year resident of Central Florida. Hes scally conservative, socially liberal, likes art and embraces diversity of opinion.

American people following the ISIS ter rorists decapitation/murder of a young American journalist was an exhibition by a man who does not seem to intend on deal ing meaningfully with a stark tragedy. His words were the same kind that Obama uses to show when he is really like mad. In WWII, I served four years as a Halsey in his Task Force 58.

With Ike leading us I doubt seriously that our present terrorists would have the chutzpah to violate the rules of warfare and if they did I am con loosen upon those miscreants a barrage of explosive power like the ones that leveled Berlin and Tokyo.

He is a perfectionist in all he does, and the house will surely bring great happi ness and pride to its future occupants. may be a bit fanciful, but dont forget I did real good in high school English! comedian Robin Williams. I am morbidly intrigued wondering what the last thoughts were of someone who had determined that those were in fact to be his last thoughts. I am too curious to see what the future holds for me to fail to play all the cards that it, human existence is a trip too short to satisfy most of us. It is no surprise to learn that Jonathan Winters was a longtime pal of Robin Williams. Winters said that he spent eight months in a private psychiat ric hospital in 1959 and again in 1961. He suffered from nervous breakdowns and bipolar disorder and made reference to his illness and hospitalization during his standup routines, most famously on his 1960 comedy album, The Wonderful World of Jonathan Winters. tine, Winters said that if he werent careful, the authorities might put him back in the zoo. Winters joined Williams in the fourth comedy Mork & Mindy. Jonathan Win ters was brought in as Mork and Mindys child, Mearth. Due to the different planet Orkan physiology, Mork laid an egg, which grew and hatched into the much older Winters. It had been previously said that Orkans age backwards, thus explaining Mearths appearance. Morks infant son Mearth was created in hopes of improving ratings and as an attempt to capitalize on Williams comedic talents. However, after scheduling and cast changes, the fourth season of Mork & Mindy ended up being the last. After his death, many comedians, actors and friends gave personal tributes to Jonathan Winters. Robin Williams toasted Winters saying, First he was my idol, then he was my mentor and amazing friend. Ill miss him huge. He was my comedy Bud dha. Long live the Buddha. At the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards, Williams again honored the career and life of Winters. Iron ically, Winters might be considered to have had a regular life dying of natural causes at 87 in 2013, and Robin Williams who might seem to have been the more normal of the two, died Aug. 12 at 63, by suicide. Alas, we shall never know what Wil liams last thoughts were except that they said, goodbye. Those people who make their careers keeping us guffawing rarely seem to end their own lives with a smile on their face. years. Want to chat with me auf Deutsch? Call 407-629-1480.
