I know Ive disadvantaged my fam ily from time to time having to choose between oral events and activities and spending time with them. The thing that is very impor tant to me is something called balance, he said. Thats been nonexistent in my life. Bradley has served as the mayor of Winter Park since 2009, getting reelected in 2012 with more than 71 percent of the vote.

City reserves have also grown from roughly six percent to around 27 percent during Bradleys tenure. As I look back on where the city has come and Ive done some real thinking about that over the last few days I think years ago when I became may or, Bradley said. Both with the visioning thats happening and new waves of interesting de velopments, I think its time for new leadership. Ive done what I feel like I came to do.

Resident Roxanne Johnson is leading the charge to con vince the Council to decrease the amount of density allowed in the downtown, adding an emphasis on the importance of green space and pedestrian safety. Johnson presented a petition to reinstate the citys old city hall site as a park signed by 813 residents at the Councils last Oct. 13 meet ing.

John Michael, a group of scouts and a city staffer removed roses from the Central Park rose garden on Saturday to make way for a bronze peacock fountain a tribute to John Michaels child hood friend Elizabeth Buckley, who passed away of an inoper able brain tumor in December 2012. It feels pretty great, said John Michael, who began fund raising in April. Were getting coming together after all the hard work the community has done. Its been such a long journey. The young scout has raised $44,000 as of Monday, quickly approaching his goal of $50,000 that would pay for the fountain, landscaping and irrigation.

We have enough parks, resident Butch Charlan told the Council on Oct. 13. But what we dont have enough of is frontage to put retail. David Lamms proposal, which is up for vote on Thurs day, includes constructing 220 apartment units, an estimated 42,000-square-feet of retail space, a 503-space parking garage, and a 41-space surface parking lot on the land currently occupied by the old Winn-Dixie and New Tra ditions Bank Plaza bordering it to the north. The Council will vote on the proposal in a special meet ing on Oct. 23 at 5:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers. C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE Three-year journey to a safer crossing ends For the last few years, Keith Wiedemann wasnt sure if he could make it across Aloma Av enue alive. If a car ran a red light or turned right on a red, the blind Winter Park resident couldnt see it. They run those lights so much, its very chancy to cross the streets there, he said. Oh, it was treacherous. But its easier now. Thanks to an improvement project three years in the making, blind, visually impaired and el derly pedestrians in Winter Park have a better way to cross the street at the intersection of Aloma Avenue and St. Andrews Boule vard. A long wait and $68,000 later, the project is complete, said Joan Carter of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). FDOT, in correspondence with the city of Winter Park, installed accessible pedestrian signals and added Americans with Dis abilities Act-compliant ramps to the intersection, according to at the city of Winter Park. Carter said the project would have cost $25,000 on a new roadway, but was more expensive because of its older location. The design began about a year ago, and on Sept. 17, the completed renovations were inspected. Winter Park Oaks, a neighbor hood that sits two blocks from the intersection, is home to numerous mobility-impaired resi dents, including Keith and Robin Wiedemann, who frequently cross at the intersection. Keith, 60, has been blind his whole life, and his wife Robin, 55, wheelchair since recently having her leg amputat ed. The two cross Aloma Avenue regularly to go to Publix. My wife steers and I push, Keith said. Before the intersec tion was renovated, Keith says it was dangerous for he and Robin to cross. The two agree that there are a lot of car accidents in the area, and cars run the red lights at that intersection frequently. People here dont care, said Robin, Theyll hit you and keep going. When pedestrians press the button at the stoplight, the Ac cessible Pedestrian Signal (APS) repeats wait, until it is safe to cross, and then counts down until the pedestrian no longer has the right of way. It also features in structions on how to operate the APS in braille. Robin says that since the sys tem has been installed, the light also changes more frequently. It would take a long time, because normally the light on Aloma is very long and St. Andrews is very short, she said.

Harvoni, a drug from Gilead Sciences, was approved on Oct. 10 after three studies doing eight, 12 or 24-week treatments on nearly 2,000 patients with hepatitis C liver disease. In more than 90 percent of trial patients, hepatitis C was un detectable in their blood 12 weeks after treatment, which doctors con sider a cure. And an Orlando doctor helped make it happen. Dr. Avanish Ag internal medicine and gastroenter ology, was one of the few investiga tors in the clinical trials across the country, which he performed at his practice Central Florida Gastroen terology in Orlando. Were actually talking cure, which is phenomenal, I mean when I went through [medical training], to talk about a cure would be im possible, Aggarwal said. Hepatitis C, which affects 3.2 million Americans, is a contagious liver disease primarily spread by contact with infected blood. Many dont know they have the disease because it can present no noticeable symptoms, but chronic hepatitis C can lead to serious liver problems, including cirrhosis (scarring of the liver) or liver cancer. It causes more deaths annually than HIV/AIDS, is the leading cause of liver cancer and trans plants, and is respon sible for $30 billion in current annual health costs, costs that are ex pected to nearly triple by 2030. The drug enables patients to discontinue use of older drugs, including Interferon, which causes debilitating side ef symptoms and depression. Many with hepatitis C choose to forego treatment because they were more afraid of the side effects of In terferon than the sometimes littleto-no symptoms they experience from hepatitis C, said Dr. Federico Hinestrosa, an infectious diseases specialist at Orlando Immunology Center who treats patients with hepatitis C. The main problem we saw [with the old drugs] was that there fects, Interferon makes you feel like patients would get really sick and many patients wouldnt be able to tolerate it at all so wed have to stop it, and it would be for a whole year, 48 weeks, so this is a long time to be feeling sick, Aggarwal said. Even with a full year of therapy, with three drugs, we were still only get ting about half to two-thirds of the patients were responding. The main criticism of the medi cation is its cost. A Harvoni pill costs $1,125 and a 12-week treat We hope you enjoy your day at Great Day in the Country. The Womans Club partners with the city of Oviedo in sponsoring this fall festival, which attracts over 60,000 people and 400 vendors. The festival is one of the largest privately hosted events in Central Florida. In the past decade, the club has raised more than $545,000 to help our community. more than $10,000 for programs that cannot be funded through their school budgets. Womans Club has focused on or ganizations that help women, fam ilies, children and senior citizens. New drug can cure hepatitis C in twelve weeks Oviedo Womans Club celebrates 41st annual Great Day in the Country BRITTNI LARSON Observer staff ment is $94,500. Many insurance companies and Medicare pro grams wont pay that, so strict guidelines are likely to be imposed al lowing only the sickest access to Harvoni. Hin estrosa said if a patient has excellent insurance that approves the drug it would cost them ap proximately $50-100 per month. But Hinestrosa did say that Har voni is no more expensive than treatments used even 10 years ago, because patients had to be treated more than once and there were sig ment requiring hospital stays and medical procedures. Aggarwal said patients on Har voni suffer side effects that are at most a headache or fatigue, and to quit from side effects. The trial was for one year in 2013, and no patients had relapsed after being tested again after six months. Its just very gratifying to be able to use something that can make a profound difference in the health of my patients, especially in a condition that up until now weve had very little to offer, Aggarwal said. Its totally thrilling when youre talking to a patient, a young couple when you talk to them and see the joy in their faces when you tell them that their hepatitis is gone and you dont have to worry.

Two scores later, the Knights were up 13-3 and looking to run away from the Green Wave and the son of an NFL legend in the process.

Page 18 | Thursday, Oct. 23 2014 | Winter Park / Maitland Observer Opinions Let me paint the following scenario. Go into any restaurant and up walks your wait that is your style). The menu is discussed. Drinks are ordered and you ask for a lemon with your water. And immediately out of your waiters mouth comes No problem. I am extremely polite to wait staff for a variety of reasons and will thank them for their service as they provide it. A your welcome or a comical I live to serve or a you bet works for me, but what I hear 94.7 percent of the time is, No problem. Let me be clear, no problem, as an a ubiquitous expression that has perme ated the American service industry at every level. My dentist may have actually uttered it. I absolutely, unequivocally detest it. I realize that no problem is merely an unthinking language habit that has crept into usage as a universal response for a myriad of server/clientele exchanges. No doubt it chaps me because I am older. Americans under the age of 30, I imagine, dont give it a thought. Is it really no problem that you are waiting on me and my guests? Is it no problem that I will be giving you money? Or, is it an opportunity to earn a wage plus a tip? I have some advice for wait staff: If you want to increase your tips, adjust your language. All anyone wants in life is her own sweet way. A waitress wants a clean reputable restaurant offering tasty meals and repeat clientele who appreciate good food and respect the staff. She wants the hours and the resulting income to pay her bills and further her dreams. Here are two tips: when a customer asks for something (a napkin, a pepper grinder, tively and get it in a timely manner and if a customer offers a thank you for any welcome. Sincerely said and I predict your income will increase as a result. No problem works as a response to a friend, a relative or co-worker. But in a monetary transaction such as waitressing it does not. I recommend that restaurant manag ers clip off the top part of this columnas reading about Mica inevitably gives one indigestion let alone heartburnand post welcome. King Features Weekly ServiceOctober 13, 2014 EDITORIAL CARTOONS Chris Jepson Perspectives I cant bring myself to write much about Congressman John Mica or his inevitable re-election on Nov. 4. He is the antithesis of what I want in a legislator, in a leader. From his voting record scored by The League of Conservation Voters, Congressman Mica had a 2013 voting history of 0 percent as a pro-environment supporter. Worse, he does not support your daughters, a womans right to reproductive choice. That Winter Park, Central Florida would repeatedly re-elect John Mica will one-day be recorded as illustrative of why America declined into mediocrity. We elected and re-elected intransigent ideologues and simplistic sycophants. Service to John Mica is limited to them that got me here. He no doubt says, No problem when toeing the Republican Party line or rather, perhaps, How high should I jump, Sir? But enough of such unfortunate matters, lets discuss a prob lem that we all experience every time we dine out. Houston, we have a problem Jepson is a 27-year resident of Central Florida.

Such a history of benevolences has involved such people as the Rockefellers, the Carnegies, and other private wealthy lovers of the arts. with a protest. The protest emanates from Met director Peter Gelbs persistence in presenting an opening production of the opera The Death of Klinghoffer despite incontrovertible evidence that exists in the libretto by Alice Goodman, and in remarks made by Met director Peter Gelb, and the composer John Adams, that the opera sup ports sympathy for terrorists, and hatred for Jews and Israel. This is the kind of news that one dislikes to corroborate. Leon Kling hoffer was a disabled retired appliance manufacturer, celebrating his 36th anniver sary on a cruise with his wife. Klinghoffer, a Jew, was murdered and thrown overboard by Palestinian terrorists who hijacked the luxury liner Achille Lauro in 1985. The Pal estinians shot Klinghoffer in the head. Then they pushed him overboard in his wheelchair. The Death of Klinghoffer is surely not a judicious opera with which to celebrate the Mets opening night.
