The potential multi-story de velopment, called Princeton at College Park, would sit on a strip of land formed by Princeton and Smith streets and include an out door plaza and a small public park But the project raised concerns among locals about increased serving the areas character. More than 40 residents spoke up about the project mostly in opposition before a 2015 budget hearing scheduled for 5 p.m. forced the council to stop hearing public comments. We have an oasis of relative, relative urban peace here in Col lege Park, College Park resident Steve Isham said. Why would you trade this precious sanctu ary for more asphalt, concrete, I and many others do not want the rampant growth that plagues other areas through Orlando. Isham added that the new development would bring hun dreds of cars to one of College Parks most crowded areas. A church, an elementary school, a supermarket and a daycare cen ter all sit nearby. The outcry from residents during the Orlando City Coun cil meeting may have been just a glimpse of the areas disapproval of the development. College Park resident Dawn Rich said that she and other residents have gath ered nearly 700 signatures oppos ing the project. We are not anti-growth, Rich RENDERING COURTESY OF POLLACK SHORES REAL ESTATE GROUP A large scale mixed-use development has residents split on whether it would help or hurt the area its proposed to be constructed, taking over a city block along Princeton Street.

The Council unanimously since 2007, raising the millage rate nearly 10 percent to 4.15 mills up from 3.88 mills where itd stagnated for seven years. Assistant City Manager Sharon Anselmo said that with that in crease, residents owning homes valued at $350,000 with a $50,000 homestead exemption can expect to pay an estimated $81 in prop erty taxes during the upcoming tax year. I think its best for the city that we do a little more than just get by, Councilwoman Bev Re ponen said, defending her vote to raise taxes. Meanwhile, the Winter Park City Commission voted Monday to hold their millage rate at 4.09 mills, the same rate since 2009. the Maitland City Council also voted Monday to adopt a revised sign code to replace the old code, which had been in place since the 1970s.

Our concern is this is a very large building with some aspects that we do not believe are well thought through. But some resi dents spoke in fa vor of the project, believing the de velopment makes the area more walkable. I lived in Los Angeles for a num ber of years, Col lege Park resident Brian Spain said. If anybody fol lows whats hap pening in Los Angeles, they are desperately trying to increase den sitypeople cant get around in cars. I know its coun terintuitive to a lot of the people who are here today, but this is the right place for dense development. When you have density right where people want to be, they pull in, they park and theyre there. You dont drive your car a block to go to Publix, you walk there. The Orlando City Council de cided it would continue the public hearing on the project at its Sept. 29 meeting. TAXES | Rising MARIJUANA | Sales Like a lottery Director Dick Wells said the new unanimously adopted code brings Maitlands antiquated code up to modern times. Already erected signs are grandfathered in, Wells said, but starting now residents, businesses, real estate agencies and politicians all need to make note of changes to the size and quantity theyre allowed to dis play within the city limits. Real estate agencies are limited in the new code to display only one sign advertising an available property on the lot it which its lo cated. And those hosting events in Maitland are also only permitted one temporary sign advertising an event on property of the venue in which its held. Billboards are outlawed as they have been for decades, and portable and human-powered signs including sign wavers on street corners are added to the prohibited list. According to the new sign code, political signs are now lim ited to one per candidate or cause per land parcel on each pub lic street abutting the property, meaning corner lots can place one sign per cause on each side of their lot. And at polling plac es, where previously candidates could display up to 10 signs on the grounds, each is now limited to only one sign per place. It should clean things up a lot, Wells said. to follow, turning the application process into a lottery, or a simple answer of yes or no, he said. Language in the Compassion ate Medical Cannabis Act allows for another party or individual to also apply as long as they have at least 25 percent ownership by a There are organizations out there right now who have run around and signed up with four six nurseries. The nurseries are only applying once, said Rotun do, who also serves as the federal lobbyist for the city of Maitland. Now youve got six or seven balls in the bowl and I get one that should not be allowed. The Winter Park entity, repre senting nurseries throughout the state, is one of three organizations in Florida to challenge the state over the legislation in just the past week.

Talks have sprung up in Winter Park over the citys own approach to medical marijuana if its legal ized in the upcoming November election. Mayor Ken Bradley met with the Orange County Council of Mayors in July to discuss the concept of distribution and sale of medical marijuana within the county. 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 obli 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 Maitland Po lice 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 challenge by the Florida Medical Cannabis Association will go before a judge on Oct. 14.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014 | Page 7 Fire Prevention Week was es tablished to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, the tragic 1871 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 struc tures and burned more than 2,000 continued into and did most of its damage on Oct. 9, 1871. According to popular legend, longing to Mrs. Catherine OLeary some version of this story your self; people have been blaming the Great Chicago Fire on the cow and Mrs. OLeary for more than 130 years. But recent research by Chicago historian Robert Cromie has helped to debunk this version of events. Like any good story, the case of the cow has some truth to it. The near the barn where Mrs. OLeary there is no proof that OLeary was the blaze. Mrs. OLeary herself swore that shed been in bed early that night, and that the cows were also tucked in for the evening. But if a cow wasnt to blame for years, journalists and historians have offered plenty of theories. Some blamed the blaze on a couple of neighborhood boys who were near the barn sneaking cigarettes.

It was the small town of Peshtigo, Wis., that suffered the worst damage. Within an hour, the entire town had been destroyed.

Page 8 | Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer Lifestyles A man with a foot-long beard and giant turban walks into the lights, the modern box of a room with its laptops and new technol ogy, somehow feel like they fade away. He is the heyday of jazz, the smoky, dim club, the smooth talk ing man who makes each person he meets feel like theyre the only ones in the room. Hes got the jazz vibe, and he brings it with him wherever he goes. These guys are very old school, when you meet them they look at you, they shake your hand, Kayonne Riley said. And sometimes hes even smooth enough to pocket the Sharpie you gave him to get his autograph, Riley remembered with a laugh. The musician was Dr. Lonnie Smith, known for his amazing jazz organ skills, a forefather of acid jazz, and a sound and vibe as funky as his signature turban. Hes just one of hundreds of jazz musicians to grace the University of Central Floridas WUCF-FM ra dio station with their innovative, skillful jazz playing over its 35 year history, said Riley, WUCFs director. Theyve seen legends Ira Sullivan, Christian Tamburr and Alain Bradette in their studio for concerts, which happen each month and are broadcasted live for listeners. Its like watching imagination, instant inspiration come to life. Jazz musicians, they have a history, a characterization, they are just so cool, they see the world in such a different way in most cases. They see the world as a beautiful place to create great things, WUCF program host Alan Rock said. They have this humorous outlook on life, and this incredible, incredible desire to create. The FM station, which began in the days when and was also once celebrates 35 years on Sept. 12. It was a small studentrun operation that spent years housed in the darkness of the campus li brarys basement. Riley has been at the station for 20 years, and remem bers those days of huge equipment that needed a DJs touch constantly. Nothing was au tomated. If a song ended, a host better be there the second that happened to change to the next tune. She had a stack of CDs 2 feet high next to her, piled in order of play. Even in 1994, the studio felt like the old days. Imagine a 1970s sitcom set, she said. It was like the 1970s; there was shag carpet on the walls, it was green and yellow and it was in the basement of the library so it was like in a bomb shelter, just gnarly, Riley said. Now, in its new location in the schools communication building, stations to broadcast HD digital and is the nations highest rated full-time jazz station. Its state-ofthe-art studio has been guest host who ate a salad while talking on world record skydiver U.S. Air Force Col. Joseph Kittinger. The stations mission is to of fer the community enlightening, educational and cultural content with the NPR cultural and talk programs, and transitioned to in clude jazz every day in 1994. They made the change because they found their most dedicated lis teners, their most popular shows, were jazz. And theres no other lo cal resource out there to hear this great music, Riley said. Its such an American artform, I mean this was invented here in America jazz was born right here and is a part of Ameri can history so its really great to be able to continue it, she said. whole musical history in America; it really does, the blues and every thing that its based on has shaped PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE OBSERVER Midday show host Chris Puorro talks with morning host Kayonne Riley in WUCFs in-house broadcast booth.

The Wildcats snagged two in terceptions and a fumble to help engineer their 24-20 edging of Or lando University, emerging with a 4-0 record as a result. Defense helped keep Winter Park in the game with those three key takeaways, and the Winter Park secondary held University quarterback Luke Poorman to just 172 yards in the air. But early in the second half, it was looking like anything but a win for the Wildcats, who let University put 20 points up on the scoreboard before they scored Cougars let the Wildcats into the The Wildcats would go on to score three consecutive touchdowns The game winning score would come on a wild play when Winter Parks Tommy Whitted snagged a Poorman fumble in the end zone for a touchdown, with the extra point putting the Wildcats up Winter Park has made a habit out of pulling off heart-attack wins this season.

Theyll see if they can keep up their streak with a 7:30 p.m. Fri day showdown at Boone. Edgewater The Edgewater Eagles (2-2) erased the sting of two straight narrow losses with a 45-6 blowout of Olympia (0-3) on Sept. 19. Olympia quarterback Khalyn Strickland was held to just 61 yards passing in the game, with 30 of those coming on one throw. Edgewaters defense did an even game, holding the team to just 31 yards on 20 carries. The Eagles have a bye week be fore they head for a 7 p.m. Oct. 3 showdown in Leesburg. Wildcats grab another heart-attack win ISAAC BABCOCK Observer staff An early dose of tension gave way to a blowout showcase of the Knights offensive talent in the teams home opener. UCF would add its seventh straight home-opener win in the Bright House in a big way with a dominating 41-7 win over Bet hune-Cookman on Saturday. The Knights seemed tenuous on offense from the start, punt to what was expected to be a sure win. That tension quickly melted as the Knights offense started cook ing in the second quarter, taking to reach the end zone twice in two minutes and 20 seconds to take a 17-7 lead and begin putting the game away. By the second half, the Knights had things well in hand thanks to man and increasingly effective though they relied heavily on the passing game to keep BCU guess ing. We are disappointed in the thought was a good team victory, UCF Head Coach George OLeary said after the game. The Knights would gain 182 yards in the air to 169 on the ground. Of those rushing yards, 104 belonged to Will Stan back. Breshard Perriman quietly amassed 98 yards in receptions. J.J. Worton would juke his way to 52 yards worth of punt returns, sition for his 35-yard TD reception early on. On the defensive side, the Knights held BCU to three-for-13 on third down attempts, and Williams six times. The Knights defense would dominate BCU for the majority of the game, only al lowing them on the Knights end enough in the fourth quarter to see what he could do. He would go two-for-two on passes for 37 yards. Were it not for a penalty on another UCF player, Patti would have come up with a 40-plus-yard pass play that was called back for The Knights get another bye week before traveling to Houston at 7 p.m. on Oct. 2.

This is an after school program that will teach students about the components of a healthy diet, provide a nutritious snack, and include a physical activity to get the students moving. The instructors of the program are comprised entirely of community members that have been vetted through OCPSs ADDitions program and trained by a coordinator through Rollins College. The program is beginning small by only allowing 25 stu dents for the rst eight-week course. It is the goal of the school to be able to open the program up to many more students in the very near future. The principal of Brookshire Elementary School Kenisha Holmes has long been a proponent of schools and communities working togeth er for the enrichment of students and is excited by the new partnership. Local private school raises funds by helping the community rst The Geneva School in Winter Park is mobi lizing forces for their annual SALT Serve athon Serving And Learning Together. On Sept. 26 the school will suspend its normal school day and students will serve the community instead. It anticipates that 700 students, teachers and parents will donate approximately 3,500 service hours to the community at 13 nonprot organi zations throughout Central Florida. Its also an important philanthropic effort, funding the schools tuition assistance program. During the Serveathon, each grade is as signed its own project for the day. Some students will be sorting and stocking shelves at food pantries, while others will be planting gardens or cleaning up local parks. Older students will be spending the day planting gardens with autistic chil dren, and younger ones will be making se niors smile at two retirement homes. One grade will be packing 10,000 meals for hungry children around the world and then have a hunger feast by eating the same food they packaged for others.

Elizabeth studied at St. Margaret Mary from kindergarten through the middle school, when she succumbed to an ill ness that led to her death. Her curious and friendly nature made Elizabeth an easy friend to all. So when it came time to think about his Eagle Scout project, Thomas instantly thought of peacocks. He worked with the city of Winter Park, and it all t into place. He would spearhead a campaign to erect a peacock fountain in the rose garden on Park Avenue in Cen tral Park. Working through the proposal approval and garnering support from city merchants, St. Margaret Mary Scout Troop 62 and St. Margaret Mary Catholic School, Thomas kicked off his project last spring. Thomas is approximately two-thirds of the way to his fundraising goal of $50,000. The latest effort was an old-fashioned bake sale. We couldnt be prouder of John Michael for his compassion, tenacity and loyalty to a dear friend, said school principal Kathleen Walsh. He reminds us all that our school is family and that our community reaches beyond our classroom doors.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014 | Page 13 In the recent past, were seeing and hearing more and more about CCL (ACL) injuries. In fact, its esti mated that in recent years Ameri cans spend on average $1.3 billion per year to repair their dogs CCLs. The injury and accompanying sur gery are becoming common place. Why is this and whats causing these injuries? The cranial cruciate ligament is one of the important stabilizers in the knee joint. Most sudden CCL injuries in dogs happen during exuberant activities, such as rough housing, running, playing, jumping, etc. CCL injuries are particularly common in canine athletes dogs that compete in agility, dock diving, Frisbee catching and more. Chronic damage develops over time and can be caused by poor neuromuscular coordination, con formational abnormalities, repeti tive injury, or poor muscle tone. Obesity can contribute to chronic ligament damage as well, because it puts excessive stress and weight on the knee joint. New research in dicates a couple of possibilities for the rise in CCL tears that were never before considered. growth plates close) because it cre ates conformational abnormalities. like hip dysplasia. Unfortunately, there is no foolproof way to prevent injuries in dogs. Keeping your dog lean and in great shape seems to be the best approach. Dogs that are in poor physical condition or are overweight are at the greatest risk of injury while healthy, well-condi tioned dogs are better able to avoid injuries, because their joints are protected by strong muscles. While CCL surgery may be nec essary, new research suggests that conservative management and re habilitation through exercise (par ticularly warm water swimming) is a viable alternative to surgery es pecially for partial CCL tears. Advo cates of conservative management recommend trying non-surgical techniques for eight weeks to see if symptoms improve. If they do, odds favor a non-surgical recovery. If surgery becomes necessary, there are several options and its best to do your homework before making a decision. The newer pro cedures are quite invasive and the research doesnt prove these pro cedures help the knee any more than less invasive procedures. If you choose surgery, once the veterinar ian gives clearance, rehabilitation via swimming has been shown to speed recovery. While you may not be able to stop a CCL tear, improving your dogs physical condition will help prevent this and other injuries, and give your dog a better quality of life as he ages.

This year she opened stores in Orlando and Winter Park, where they spe cialize in the service. While they do offer some hair treatments, ex tensions and up-dos, they dont do hair coloring or cutting.

Often theyre completely trans formed after the service, glowing, even, Jarnes said. I like the feeling of how I can make somebody happy in less than an hour; their whole day can change, said Ashley Tuten, a stylist there. Tuten had one special client who came in before each of her four baby showers to get her hair done. When it was time for her la bor to be induced, she stopped in on the way to the hospital to get a blowout. It was a little nervewracking; Tuten worried the hair dryer might stir up some labor, she said with a laugh.

Our staff works day in and day out to ad vocate, support and grow local businesses. However, our Presi dent/CEO Patrick Chapin is of ten quoted as describing us as a chamber of community. He was recently quoted saying, The Win ter Park Chamber of Commerce has a unique perspective: to pro mote and support our business community, but also to enhance the civic and overall well-being of Winter Park. In this spirit of community, the Chamber is involved in a va riety of philanthropic activities. First, in September and October, the Chamber is supporting Pink Out Winter Park with the sale of Welcome Center. Purchase a pair take one home with you while the ing around town. All of the funds Hospital Mammography Schol arship Fund. But it doesnt stop there! Nearly three dozen local merchants are supporting the cause as well with special promo tions, events and give-back nights The Chamber is also collecting diapers in an effort to raise aware ply of disposable diapers within our community. Diapers are man datory for day care centers and even free and subsidized facili ties require parents to provide a days supply of disposable dia pers. Consider this: when children are in daycare, parents are able to complete higher education pro grams, attend job training courses and work outside the home. By allowing parents to better their lives, the cycle of poverty can end. Disposable diapers and pull-ups in any size, including open pack ages, are welcome to be dropped off at the Winter Park Welcome Center, located at 151 West Lyman Avenue, Winter Park, weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Satur days from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. To learn more about diaper need in our community, visit diaperbankof Join us on the Front Porch Finally, in response to a rela tive divide in our community on complex issues, the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce recently launched the Front Porch Partner ship, a cross section of institutions committed to community conver sation and education.

Page 18 | Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer Opinions Chris Jepson Perspectives One of lifes big mysteries is why any man would ever be aggressive with a woman. Concomitant with that question is where or how does such aggression American college women report physical/ How is that possible, and what does that Ive wondered for decades how men historically could have considered women as less than themselves. Its a bizarre concept, if for no other reason, that youre a man and you would couple (propagate) argument unfortunately is somewhat spe cious as illustrated by the recent incontro vertible evidence of Neanderthal DNA in modern humans. The recent revelations of abuse in the NFL illustrate how the league minimized the problem through inconsequential punishments. It is characteristic of our cultures handling of such issues. First, challenge and marginalize the woman and then excuse male behavior as, well, men are aggressive by nature and Im sure hes very sorry now. As sadly tragic as NFL players smacking their women around, and harassment even more disturbing. Professional football is violent. To will ingly participate in such a sport suggests a mindset that accommodates physical aggression as an appropriate expression of human behavior. Perhaps, but is the mar ginalization and mistreatment of Ameri legians more representative of masculine ters are harassed, manhandled or raped on Ill dispense as nonsensical the alleged rape fantasies reputed to appeal to some Being out-of-control is one thing (at times desirable), being raped quite another. There are any number of theories to explain why men rape. A now somewhat discredited description is the Biological Theory. Rape evolved with our species as a way for males to have a large number of partners without any commitment; the ol get your genes in as many offspring as possible explanation. An explanation I think overthought suggests sex is a commodity stolen by the rapist. Another theory has rape as a gender based hate crime. Yes, I see that. The Control Theory argues that rape isnt about sex but control. Again, yes. Sex to me is about joy and these theories are anything but. is the Developmental Theory. It posits, essentially, that how the twig is bent so grows the tree. If a man comes from a pu nitive, violent background (home life) he learns that violence and intimidation are acceptable expressions of masculinity. Ah, but heres a major rub, lads. There are many theories as to why men are aggressive and possessive of women. A legitimate question is how institutional ized has been the undeniable historic today does society still inform its men that Common law myth had it that 18th century Englishmen could discipline their wives and children with a whip or branch no bigger than ones thumb. This rule of thumb argued that a husband, Whipum but fer gawds sake dont killum. An old high school football cheer went, Hitum again, harder, harder!

I am often asked, What kind of a man was mind immediately goes to the superlative department, although he probably didnt hear much about that talk in his lifetime. My father was a true intellectual, a teacher of Latin, Greek and several man. In his youth, he was a champion fencer in foil, sabre and epe. Later, at Rollins College, he enjoyed coaching a fencing team that won national renown. I remember a match at Harvard when dads Rollins team won handily over my alma mater! Dad was a very kind person, but I doubt he ever received the gratitude he deserved as a father. He was a man whom I never heard use any words of profanity or even vulgarity. When I asked him why he never said ugly words that are all too often used, he said, There are other words that express things much more accurately without resorting to profanity. in World War I, and managed somehow II when he was far over age. He was a strong patriot who told me, Any time our country is at war, I want to be in the U.S. military somewhere. Once during WWII I was on a destroyer escort sailing down Long Island Sound. Suddenly a seaman called me to say that my father was on the ship passing us in the other direction. Through megaphones, we quickly trans mitted greetings to each other. Our family had moved to Winter Park in the early 1930s when my dad was a language professor at Rollins. When my parents decided to build a house on Palmer Avenue in Winter Park, my father sat down and drew complete plans for the house. The builder afterward told me that dads plans were as profes sional as any he had ever used. Dad had a way of dismissing perplex ing challenges with the customary phrase, Thats a snap. When I once showed signed in integral calculus at Harvard, he pronounced it a snap and proceeded to prove it by solving it in a couple of minutes. In his late years, dad suffered from advanced macular degeneration. Mal heureusement, I have inherited that same partial blindness from him. I wish that I had inherited his brains instead!

He founded and directed the Festival of Orchestras, bringing the worlds best symphony orchestras to Orlando.

Orange County is known world wide for its exceptional theme parks and attrac tions. However, our local economy than many of the millions of tourists that visit each year may believe. Orange County is home to many other hightech industries including life sciences and health care, optics and photonics, and digital media. Our county is also a national leader in the modeling, simula tion, and training (MS&T) industry based at Central Florida Research Park in east Orange County. The origins of our MS&T cluster date back to March 20, 1950. On that day, the secretaries of the Army and Navy agreed to collaborate on future training and train ing devices. In 1965, the Armys Program and Instrumentation and the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division moved to Naval Training Center Orlando from the programs previous home in New York. Over the next two decades many more federal training directorates would move to Orlando. In the 1980s, these commands moved from the Navy base to their present site in Research Park adjacent to the University of Central Department of Homeland Security and more than 100 private companies are part of Orange Countys MS&T cluster. The MS&T industry provides critical the advent of modern simulation technol ogy, simulations were often rudimentary and abstract. Today, soldiers can simulate aircraft and armored vehicles to better prepare them for combat. This training is vital to ensuring that our troops return home safely from dangerous missions overseas. Other simulators developed in to practice lifesaving procedures without putting lives at risk and train pilots to navigate through hazardous conditions. Much of this military training technol ogy developed here in Orange County has real world applications for everyone in our community. Training aids origi nally developed for the armed forces are now being used here at home to enhance training for people in a variety of capaci ties from emergency medical technicians, theme park managers, surgeons, oil and gas workers, and even teachers. Other spinoffs from MS&T research include ap plications in the video game production and animation industries. The MS&T industry based out of Research Park has a very tangible eco nomic impact on our community. The industry employs 27,000 people in Florida and adds $4.8 billion to the states gross domestic product. The 120 companies in Central Floridas Research Park alone em ploy more than 8,500 people; the average salary of these jobs is $70,000. Orange County is committed to growing the high tech MS&T industry in Research Park. The county created a blue ribbon commission to tell our MS&T story, educate key audiences about the reach, breadth, and diversity of this key economic driver, and to bring awareness regarding the highly synergistic nature of MS&T to other key sectors of our economy. I am extremely proud of the industryleading work our modeling, simulation, and training cluster does to prepare both our military and civilian workers to better perform their jobs.
