COYOTES | More have been spotted in Winter Park, and the sightings are coming closer to Park Avenue and Howell Branch Road, as well as one of the citys golf courses. College Park resident Harriet Duncan told the Orlando Senti nel that a coyote on Stetson Street killed her cat, Marrakesh, back in July. Another coyote was spotted Sept. 24 at the Winter Park Raquet Club along Via Tuscany. The captured coyotes each had to be euthanized under state law. Its just controlling the popu lation, Salicrup told WESH 2 News. Were not trying to eradicate them or anything. Were just trying to control them in the areas where theyre causing trouble. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission took some action of their own last month after receiving multiple calls about coyote sight ings, posting a warning to keep on the lookout for the wild animals. Greg Workman of Florida Fish and Wild life said multiple food sources and increased development in Central Florida would likely ex plain the recent coyote sightings, but they dont know for sure. Theyve been around for years, he said. Its just that certain areas are getting a lot more now, whether theyre be ing forced out of the areas where they were or the numbers may be increasing. We dont know what factors are making them come out more. Workman said that Florida Fish and Wildlife will continue to monitor the area and will take ac tion if the situation becomes dan gerous. Winter Park recently posted a guide to living with urban coy otes on their city website, includ ing Information on how to keep pets safe. The city hopes to have Florida Fish and Wildlife host an informational meeting in Winter Park soon. C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE This is not the end of it for sure.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Oct. 2, 2014 | Page 7 Some Winter Park news from Sept. 23, 1893 just went viral again. A Rollins College class took social medias throwback post ing theme to the next level last week, treating the public to a day of tweeting and instagramming the news like it was 1893. Just in case anyone forgot that @WinterParkFla is capable ickProbs, student Evan Rogers tweeted. One hundred and twenty one years later, Winter Parks talk of the town may seem eerily familiar. Student groups in the class Decade of Decision: part of this semester re searching and writing papers about the political, social, cultural and eco nomic circumstances in Winter Park in 1893. Then they used that knowl edge and reacted to an editorial in the Winter Park Advocate, a black newspaper of the time, and spent the day it was published, Sept. 23, tweeting about it. This was like a social drama, said Professor Julian Chambliss. You are yourself in 1893, but remarkably you have Twitter and Instagram, and youre reacting to this edito rial, but you are you. Students focused on the main historical event of the moment the redistricting of Winter Park, cutting Hannibal Square and its black, Re publican residents, from the town to Democrats seeking a larger voice in Winter Parks gov ernment. I worked over the summer to identify what would be something that could generate a conversation and that we could capture some of the ar chival sources that we have and weave them across platforms and create a kind of immersive experience, Chambliss said. And so it was really important nate enough with contemporary audiences, that it would be inter esting, but also something rooted in the period. The tweets read like any youd cussing todays news, and their points of view read like those of today, too. Unlike the community members of Winter Park in 1893, the students of Rollins 2014 dis agree with removing Hannibal Square from the town limits. People of Rollins should sup port Republicans and not get rid of part of the town for politi cal gain, Anthony Patikowski tweeted.

Page 8 | Thursday, Oct. 2, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer It took overtime to make it happen, but Winter Parks un defeated streak on the gridiron came to an end last Friday, with rival Boone taking the win 16-13. Boone was behind Winter Park by 3 points in OT and driv ing toward the goal line when Boone QB Logan Smith found Alex Bergan in the corner of the end zone for the score that would win the game. When the UCF Knights step p.m. tonight, Oct. 2, theyll have had 12 nights of rest. The only problem with that: So will the Cougars. Both teams are coming off bye conference games of the season. Only one of those teams is a reigning champ. We have one goal on our team and thats to win a con ference championship, so ev ery game is critical, UCF head coach George OLeary told about his goal this season. He wants a repeat. The Knights shocked college football last season in a strong win it all, edging tough rivals Louisville, Cincinnati and Hous ton for the American Athletic Conferences inaugural champi onship. Edging is the operative word here. In a season of heartstopping, last-second wins for the Knights, Louisville was one for the history books; an upset win that came down to a hail Mary that was batted down in the end zone as the clock ran out. But in Houston, it may have been even more of a nail-biter for the Knights. Rather than spotting Louisville 2:37 to go 75 yards at the end of the game, the Knights, who had just gone three-and-out with a chance to put the game away with 3:02, punted to let Houston start their drive with plenty of time and only 62 yards to go. Within two minutes the Cou gars phenom quarterback John goal. What would ensue on that series would be a stand for the ages, with the Knights knocking down a pass, then stopping a QB sneak, knocking down another pass, then Brandon Alexander knocking the ball out of Aaron Johnsons hands to end the drive and win the game with 14 sec onds left. Alexander will be back for the game against Houston (31), along with much of UCFs defense that helped secure last years win. But so will Hous tons OKorn. Thankfully for the Knights (1-2), OKorn is throwing a bit worse this season than the last, averaging 211.5 yards per game in the air, with six TD passes and six interceptions. And the much of those middling stats came against the seemingly easily de featable UTSA, Grambling State, and UNLV, with a combined re cord of 4-10 this season. The only other team the Cou gars have played is No. 23 BYU on Sept. 23. BYU also happens to be the highest-ranked team the Knights are scheduled to play this season. But in that game, which saw a tough BYU run defense hold Houston to only 10 yards rushing, OKorn came alive, passing for 307 yards and three touchdowns. BYU would still win 33-25 after amassing 523 total yards against a nonexistent Houston defense. UCF vs. Houston is expect ed to be an edge-of-your-seat matchup, if history is any judge. All four of UCFs wins against Houston came down to defen sive stands or special teams Houston has proven a tough team to pin down as being a rushing or passing team. Just the next game after their Sept. 11 matchup against BYU when they only rushed for 10 yards, they put up 399 against UNLV. Three Houston rushers have 100 yards on the season. The game will kick off at 7 p.m. tonight on ESPN. Sports PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE OBSERVER Breshad Perriman bowls over a BCU defensive back en route to the Knights win two weeks ago.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Oct. 2, 2014 | Page 9 TWEETING | News of Winter Park in 1893 suddenly went viral when tweets blasted out by Rollins students WILDCATS | the time period. On a photo of people enjoying boating on a local lake, pictur esque homes in the background, shes placed the text, This is a formal affair come to Winter Park. Chambliss said its a great comment on tourism and the role lakes still play in recreation in residents lives. But Chambliss isnt sure whether Winter Parks residents of 1893 would love Twitter or not. They had their own version of Twitter, he said. Many big cities had a morning and evening edition of the pa per then, along with the birth of modern media happening mag azines and telegraphed news so information traveled relatively fast, even then, Chambliss said. Milford said she appreciates how much more quickly she can get news now, and the dialogue it creates when people can offer their views along with the news instantly. I feel like that connects a lot more people, she said. I think about things. Chambliss liked that this was a way to share some Winter Park history with a lot of people at once on a very accessible, popu lar platform. Its a way to teach the public and his students. I think it should be done more, I mean, were in the 21st dia should play a role in a history class, said Austin Meehan, a se nior history major. It combines the past and the present a little bit, and for me as a student it gets me more engaged and more in terested in whats going on. For the Wildcats, who had of four straight wins, three of which came by less than a loss turns their record to 4-1. For the formerly struggling Braves, theyre now 2-3. Winter Park gets to play host to Timber Creek at 7:30 p.m. Fri day. Itll be their second district Wolves are 3-1, coming off a 49-7 demolition of Olympia last week. Edgewater Olympia also was manhan dled by Edgewater two weeks ago, 45-6. The Eagles took a bye week last Friday to prepare for Leesburg.

Page 14 | Thursday, Oct. 2, 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer Opinions Chris Jepson Perspectives Do not keep children to their studies by compulsion, but by play. Plato As a child I lived for recess, to play. As an adult, little has changed. Im afraid Im becoming one of those. You know, one of those. An old man cur mudgeon lamenting, longing for some lost paradisiacal past of his halcyon youth. A time when a king-size, mind you, a kingsize Coke was 12 ounces, a time when the renewal of your 50-cent library card was the total extravagant extent of any parental involvement in your after school educa tion, and of a time when two daily recesses were the norm for an elementary school student. Most of us understand that nothing is forever. Seasons. Batting streaks. Civiliza tions. When historians look back on what triggered the collapse (perhaps I exag gerate) of the American Empire or what aptly illustrates a pivotal turning point in our nations history, from greatness to mediocrity, they may look no further than a recent quote from Leesburg Elementary School Principal Patrick Galatowitsch from the Orlando Sentinel, Allowing kids to run around on the playground without appropriate guidance isnt helping our kids to be focused on instruction. There is so much wrong with Galatow itschs perspective that I am at a loss as to where to begin. Allowing kids to run around on the playground? Is this educa tor, nay, administrator bereft of imagi nation? We should be encouraging our children to do exactly that, to run around exhaustinglymuch the time. And why Without appropriate guidance? Are you kidding me? Arguably, I learned as much on the playground as I did sitting in the classroom. You learn to play with others; to be part of a team, a side. You learn fair play. To share. You observe bad behaviors (in others, in yourself) that do not work, that are unacceptable. You expe rience peer pressure, feuds, cliques, bullies, loves and triumphs. Ah, young love. On your own with others your age, without the omnipresent supervision of adults, you grow and mature. I am saddened for Americas youth if modernity determines that unsupervised childs play has become unacceptable. Helping our kids to be focused on instruction? Exercise and play and un supervised child-to-child interactions do just that help children to focus on their instruction. Remember for a glorious second how free you once felt. The clock on the wall behind the teacher moved so achingly slow and then bingo, the moment arrived when all the second grades headed out to the playground for 15 or 20 minutes of just running and horsing around. Boys over there, girls in the shade. Who liked you? Who didnt? Who cares? It was ecstasy. Google the value of recess, of play and read study after study supporting the idea of play as conducive to learning. But we dont really require studies, do we, to intuitively know, to value play as an integral part of life. George Bernard Shaw offered, We dont stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing. Theres a Biblical quote that from my perspective gets it profoundly wrong. Cor inthians 13:11 reads, When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. If child be the father of man, mores the pity if we put away play. You may as well repress your humanity. And wheres the joyful play in that? Ask any elementary school student.

Reach him at Jepson@MEDIAmerica.US Louis Roney Play On! Holder as attorney general, I became interested in Holder and began to follow what he was doing. During the months, and years of his reign as AG, I have looked I have given up on him long ago. Now he is giving up on himself and is vacating the government premises. Should have hap in Europe and was cognizant of the illconcealed jealousy that my European col leagues felt for things American, especially when I spoke of beautiful sunny Florida. I mused then that when I was being paid to sing in European opera houses, I might be selling my birthright for a mess of pottage. Perhaps Americas birthright is Cotton Matwhers: Let us now be up and doing, which keeps our civilized world in constant forward motion progress we call it. As my days dwindle down to a precious few, people ask me, What do you do to get yourself going in the morning? I say, I think about what needs to be done. I think about what I can get done today, and I get busy doing it. Whats so unusual about that? After all, today is the only Along the way, have I made some mis I did some good things too, like singing for millions of people during my 40 year career, marrying b.w., buying a house in Winter Park, starting a concert-presenting organization Festival of Orchestras, teach ing 24 years as a distinguished professor at UCF and in general, not breaking any laws and staying out of jail. I wish I had done lots of things that I didnt get around to, but why cry about it? Im leaving plenty of things undone for the next do-gooder who happens along with a big supply of words. I, as an aesthete on the scene, should have tackled the problem of anything ugly that mars Winter Parks beautiful features. For example: roughhewn Fairbanks Avenue, which initiates strangers to our city by traversing one of the citys few ugly thoroughfares. Fair leave it for the next guy. shape the only thing left to worry about is the people, starting with ones self. Oh would some power, the giftie gie us, to see ourselves as others see us, as Bob bie Burns put it (though in thicker Scots verbiage). Self-criticism is not an easily practiced human art, and all of us are apt to see ourselves in a little better light than our neighbors do. Maybe each of us should give a suggested list of self-improvements to his neighbor telling him how to change himself to suit us. I, myself, dont want to receive any such suggestions but I am willing and able to give plenty of sugges I am getting myself into trouble by what I have just said, so I am going to change the subject. But think it over, OK? Let me know how you feel about it. house, which has all the rooms we could dictably, spend most of our days. We also spend a lot of time in the kitchen where we eat unless we are having company when we use the dining room. You could say we bathroom, and a bedroom of course, where we sleep as most folks do. It occurs to me that in all the larger houses, of which Winter Park has a plethora, the people who live there are paying for a great deal of space they rarely, if ever, use. After all, isnt a palace just a big house with many rooms? But having extra space does gives one the kingly feeling of being able to plan all the myriad things that make our country the Marriage is the most common escape from more fun, and get into more mischief, than one. A couple has the advantage of being able to criticize each other, and to prevent each other from getting into predicaments that are always looming.

Letters to the editor Send your thoughts (400 words or less) to Managing Editor Isaac Babcock at On the evening of Sept. 23, 2014, the city of Winter Park had a downpour unlike anything we have seen since the hurricanes of 2004. Our Winter Park Police Depart ment was inundated with calls regarding The teamwork between the Fire-Rescue Department and other city departments was amazing, but that is something that fortunately we have come to expect. I write today to thank the countless citizens that event. My watch commander relayed that while she was out in the rain in calf-deep water trying to push a disabled car that was blocking the passage of other vehicles, she was joined by a passerby (whose name she was too tied up to write down) that threw down her umbrella and helped her push the car from the roadway. Other citizens assisted whether by helping push cars, or by their patience as we worked our way through the calls for service before we could get to their immediate need. As police chief I want everyone to know and fellow city workers, but I am proud of those we serve who pitched in during less-than-ideal circumstances. Your as sistance was appreciated and it does not go unnoticed. Brett C. Railey Chief of Police Winter Park Police Department King Features Weekly ServiceSeptember 29, 2014 EDITORIAL CARTOON
