Fair banks Ave, has been serving up Mexico City street fare with specials highlighting different regional foods for some time. But now, owner Joe Creech is searching for a new location. Creech, along with other Win ter Park vendors, are hoping to move into the old Lombardis Seafood location as it possibly is transformed into a food market concept. The location is perfect for a market, Creech said. Second, theres a ton of history with that building. Its just one of those things where you cant find a building with that kind of char acter with it. Creech said he currently is in negotiations for the new loca tion and hopes it will have a satisfying conclusion. Jennifer Crotty, owner of Porch Front Therapy and a main driver of the locations transformation, did not return inquiries seeking comment by press time. If anything happens there, it would be 100% a different concept than what were doing now, Creech said. It would be a omakase service for dinner and lunch would be grab-andgo stuff right now. Omakase, a Japanese term, translates roughly to I trust you (the chef). It would be a chef-given experience that would allow us to highlight and educate people on what Mexican food is and its history, Creech said. In a omakase style, wed be paying for the seat ahead of time, and wed only be feeding 20 to 30 people per night, and it would be six to seven dishes with each one being plated by the chef in front of you. Its completely different than your fast-casual kind of setting. Id love for this place to be pushing the envelope in what we hope Mexi can food to be in Orlando. Creech, who grew up in Aca pulco and met his wife in Mex ico City, said after leaving their native country, the two just started to miss good Mexican food. He believes Hunger Street Tacos specializes in Mexican fare not typically seen in more Americanized restaurants. (Our restaurant includes) tacos, quesadillas occasion ally tamales, your typical Mexi can street food, he said. We want to show the wealth and richness of the culinary scene in Mexico that people have no clue exist. People just think chimi changas but thats American. He said his restaurants mole dishes, along with its grilled snapper, are particularly strong. In addition to serving custom ers at the restaurant, the busi ness also offers full-service catering.

They had all arrived in Destin a week prior, but make no mistake, this wasnt a vacation for these young ladies. What followed their arrival was a boot camp of sorts that included numerous rehearsals, interviews and community service all for the sake of sisterhood and for a shot at the big title. Although many would have just been thinking of possibly winning the competition, Trapp simply reflected on the hours spent learn ing and spending time with all of her new friends. I was honestly just filled with gratitude, said Trapp, a Winter Parker and senior at Trinity Prep. I remember calling my mom the night before the actual competi tion, and I remember telling her how I just felt so lucky to have been able to go, and how I could not care less if I won, because I just felt like I made such amazing relationships. Before she even had time to fin ish her thoughts, colorful confetti came raining down as her name was called out much to her sur prise. Winning the title of Distin guished Young Woman of Florida itself was a culmination of almost a years worth of hard work in the organization that serves as the largest and oldest national schol arship program for high-school girls. And the process all began thanks to a friend of hers at the Orlando Ballet School who had competed the prior year. I just thought it was such a fabulous opportunity that I had to try out, Trapp said. The process started over the summer. In late July, we had a local competition, so I prepared for that and thats where I competed for Winter Park, and then from then on, I moved on to the state competition. Much like the competition in Destin, Trapp participated in five different categories which included interviews, performances and other events but the biggest difference was that it was only a one-day affair. The performance aspect alone ended up being the most stressful for Trapp. She and the other 11 girls had to learn the routine earlier in the day before going on to perform it that afternoon. Luckily for the 17-year old, her 12-year background as a dancer at the Orlando Ballet School and her love for the performance helped prepare her for just the occasion. Ive been doing more theater this year, which has also been a really fun experience, Trapp said. Im kind of branching out when it comes to dance and also involving some acting and singing per forming has definitely become one of my favorite experiences. Trapp said she does mostly school theater performances at Trinity Prep and that has led her to participating in a Shakespeare competition at the Lincoln Center in New York City this month. Her talents dont just stop with the arts Trapp also has a particular knack for language. At home we speak four lan guages English, German, Span ish, and French, Trapp said. My mom is Dominican, and my dad is German, and we lived in the Dominican Republic when I was younger, and we went to a French school in the Dominican Repub lic. My parents: They really tried to make sure that we got a global education. Between her intellect and abili ties in and out of school, Trapp is currently in the middle of deciding on her schooling after she gradu ates from Trinity Prep. Right now, her top choices are Stanford, Har vard and Yale though she said right now she was leaning toward heading out west to Palo Alto to study international relations. But before any of that happens, Trapp still has one last stage to conquer in June as she looks to take home the title of Distinguished Young Woman at this years nationals in Mobile, Alabama. Until then, Trapp said she will continue to work on the different categories to get ready for the competition, although she believes that ultimately meeting new friends will be the best part of the entire process. By the end of this, Im going to have 51 sisters in every single state in the United States (including D.C.), as well as a bunch of amaz ing girls that Ive met in Florida, Trapp said. I think that kind of network and that kind of commu nity is pretty astounding any where I go, Ill know somebody. improve and beautify their com munity environment. Under the banner of Keep Win ter Park Beautiful, Winter Park is involved in Keep America Beau tifuls Great American Cleanup, the largest community improve ment program in the country and engages more than 5 million vol unteers through the months of March through May. We have a call to action to engage more volunteers and par ticipants in these kind of public space cleanups and beautifica tion projects, as well as recycling events, Winter Park Sustainabil ity and Permitting Planner Van essa Balta Cook said. Basically its wanting to get people excited about doing different things. One of those outlets is through community park workdays, dur ing which residents volunteer their time to help with weeding, mulching and planting in local mini parks. The next workday is slated for Saturday, April 21, at the Lasbury Maiden Mini Park at Lasbury Ave nue and Maiden Lane. The city kicked off this years Great American Cleanup March 24 in Trismen Park A future work day is scheduled for Saturday, May 19, at Alberta Courland Mini Park at the intersection of Alberta Drive and Courtland Avenue. Every little bit counts, Bal ta Cook said. Theres a lot of research that points to how impactful it can be having clean streets and having these kind of beatification efforts and not hav ing litter. When people see litter, they automatically kind of earn this environment of littering is OK. In terms of Keep America Beautiful and their tenets, its very important to recognize how one person can make a huge dif ference in a community. If we can get all these people together at these kind of cleanups, we can have a pretty big impact. Thats all in addition to the quarterly watershed cleanups put on by the city, with the last one taking place April 7 at Lake Virginia. There, 69 volunteers collected 320 pounds of trash on 944 acres of land that drains into the lake. Keep Winter Park Beautiful also encourages local businesses, neighborhoods and church groups to coordinate their own cleanup efforts and recycling events while providing them with supplies like trash bags, gloves and litter grab bers. Efforts like these have helped Winter Park receive national rec ognition, particularly from Amer ica in Bloom a nonprofit orga nization that sponsors an annual nationwide competition between the most beautiful communities in the country. Community involvement and cleanups is really an important component of all of that, Keep Winter Park Beautiful and Sus tainable Advisory Board member and America in Bloom judge Ste phen Pategas said. Volunteers learn about our parks and they also learn some good horticul tural practices, and at the same time theyre assisting the parks and recreation department. A well-maintained commu nity raises everybodys spirits up, increases property values and puts a smile on everybodys face, he said. The city is trying to keep items from the landfill and increase the reuse of items, as well. The Winter Park Public Library on Saturday will host a Dont Pitch It, Fix It event a repair caf where residents can take in their items that are in need of repair. Balta Cook said many residents already may see Winter Park as clean, but its that way for a rea son, she said. Its that way because the resi dents care, and because the resi dents do participate in these kinds of events, Balta Cook said.

The event will include every thing from live African drum ming and storytelling by Orisirisi to Cajun zydeco music from The Porch Dogs, along with food ven dors and at least 20 local artists selling their creations. For the children, the event will host free origami lessons and an Aztec folk art workshop followed by a parade. The ultimate goal for me is always to bring together a diverse community, Heritage Center manager and festival producer Barbara Chandler said. I want the festival to reflect the community. We no longer live in a one-dimen sional community theres so many layers. A portion of the festival also focuses on the history of the Hannibal Square community. Rollins College graduate and Hannibal Square resident Maria Bryant will lead a presentation that tells the stories of Gus Henderson the publisher of a local AfricanAmerican newspaper known as The Advocate and Frank Israel and Walter B. Simpson the first African-Americans to become elected city officials in Winter Park. We like the word edu-tain ment around here to educate through entertainment, Chandler said. What really came together this year was the history aspect in the storytelling form taking some of these actual stories that are down stairs in the gallery and bringing them to life. Its re-enforcing the story. It ties into the Hannibal Square Heritage Centers goal of help ing people to embrace their heri tage, whether its told through art, entertainment, singing or dancing. The festival also has a strong focus on supporting local artists and gives them a place to sell their work, Chandler said. We like to think that were offering that kind of space for artists and for those that like to embrace community, she said. Hannibal Square is a wonderful place for a festival like this, Chan dler said. Its a community thats captured her heart ever since she came to the Heritage Center as a volunteer years ago, she said. Its also reminded Chandler that regardless of where we all come from, were more alike than we are different. I fell in love with the fact the African-American local story was being told so profoundly it was being told in a way that you could connect with it no matter where you were from, Chandler said. Thats always my charge to any and everyone where ever youre from, I dont care if its Brazil, Peru, Haiti, there is a common thread that weaves us together as a com munity.

It was in this moment that Kienle had felt as though most of her life as an athlete had been building up to, and she wasnt going to take it for granted especially after being out for most of the early part of the season as she nurtured her re-injured Achilles tendon. Ive been looking forward to playing on this field since I was a little girl, and not being able to play for the first game of the season was extremely hard, Kienle said. But then coming back and playing the first time stepping on the field was one of the greatest feelings Ive ever had that was exciting. Kienle suffered a tear in her Achilles tendon at the beginning of her senior year at Trinity Prep, which caused her to miss the entire season. Going into her first year at Rollins, she had gotten back into better shape, before she re-aggravated her Achilles in the spring. Despite the setback, and although still not at 100%, her comeback and first game as a Tar in the friendly confines of Barker Family Stadium was a whirlwind of emotions, Kienle said. When I heard my name being called, I got the chills and had a lot of butterflies in my stomach, Kienle said. But then I realized Ive been playing since I was 3 years old and just realized that Im just going out and playing the sport on a regular day nothing new. I was just trying to keep focused and do what I was going to do. And stay focused she did. Right off the bat she helped make a real difference especially relating to draws. Before making it into the game against Seton Hill, Rollins had gone 0-for-6 on draws, but Kienle was about to change that for the better. She helped turn the tide a bit in the game and won the next six for the Tars helping them to a victory. Her abilities to win draws left and right has made the attacker a key cog in the Tars proverbial wheel, and she has become a specialist in that aspect of the game. Through the nine games in which she has been active, Kienle has picked up 14 draw controls and two goals. Both goals came in a 19-2 win over Palm Beach Atlantic. Her constant dedication and strong work ethic, which have helped Rollins to a 13-3 record and No. 6 national ranking in the polls, has not gone unnoticed, especially by 11-year Rollins assistant coach Tom Kienle Taylors father. The hard part is seeing her try to come back from her injury, and I feel like she is getting there, Tom Kienle said. She is not back to where she was prior to her injury, and I see some frustration from her on a day-to-day basis. So watching her have the opportunity TAYLOR MADEFrom Trinity Prep to Rollins, Winter Park native Taylor Kienle hopes to overcome injury and make a dierence on the lacrosse eld for the Tars.

For more on Health Observed, email us at kohara@yourobserver.com.Women are frequently caregivers in the family. We spend a large portion of our day taking care of the needs and health of our children, spouses or parents, and too frequently we dont take time to care for ourselves. However, its hard to be there for our loved ones if were facing health concerns of our own. Its important to take a time out to focus on ourselves to prevent some common health issues that women face. Heart DiseaseYou may think of men when you hear heart disease, but this condition is the leading killer of women over 25. The good news is you can take steps to help prevent heart disease. Eat a balanced diet high in fruits and vegetables and low in simple carbohydrates. Exercise enough to raise your heart rate several times a week. Talk to your doctor about ways to manage or prevent high cholesterol and high blood pressure.Breast Cancer Your risk of developing breast cancer increases with age, but you can be proactive in helping to lower your risk. First, get moving. According to the National Cancer Institute, physical activity can reduce breast cancer risk, and if you exercise enough to lose weight you can lower your risk even more. Second, avoid or limit alcohol. Most important, be sure to perform a monthly breast selfexam, and after age 40 get a mammogram every year or every other year.Osteoporosis Osteoporosis occurs when your bones weaken and lose mass. You may not even notice you have this condition until you suffer a broken bone. If you are at risk or have suffered a broken bone, your doctor may order a bone density test that compares your bones with those of a healthy 30 year old, since thats when your bones are the strongest. Help keep your bones strong by staying active, such as standing on your toes, walking or hiking, lifting small weights or using elastic resistance bands, or dancing. Take a calcium supplement. Get vitamin Drich sunlight each day. Depression Depression often strikes when youre experiencing other health issues and life events, such as losing a spouse. However, even if you have reason to be sad, clinical depression is a serious health problem. Its important to get help dont go through it alone. If youre unsure where to turn, youre primary care physician can recommend professionals in your area.By Carol Lemerond, ARNP, Florida Blue Nurse Practitioner (352) 242-6800 Clermont (321) 441-2020 Winter Park www.FloridaBlue.comCarol Lemerond is a nurse practitioner at the Florida Blue Centers in Winter Park Village and inside the Clermont Wal-Mart, where she teaches free health and wellness classes that are open to the public in addition to providing health coaching and assessments.

That was a pretty cool moment for me. Lacrosse in the Kienle family runs deep and is partially what inspired Taylor to play though Coach Kienle said he left the option up to his daughter. Before he became a coach at Rollins, Kienle started both the boys and girls lacrosse teams at Lake Highland, while Taylors mother, Rita started the team at Trinity Prep, and Taylor and her sister, Paige, were a part of that initial class. Paige, a senior this year at Trinity Prep, will be join ing her sister on the Tars womens lacrosse team next year. Taylor Kienle made the most of her time on that Saints lacrosse team. She became a threetime varsity team captain as a midfielder/attacker. She also was named to the Under Armour AllAmerican Lacrosse Team and was a US All-American. Although the honors of the past reflect her talent well, there is still a lot left for the freshman to accomplish. Id like to emphasize that there is something special with this team that separates them from other teams that Ive been on in the past the bond that we all have, and the friendship that is what really makes us so suc cessful, Taylor Kienle said. And that was one of the reasons that I decided to come here was because I saw the team chemistry. I didnt expect it to be as strong as it was, honestly, and I wouldnt change it for the world, she said. Theyre all my best friends, and I think thats what makes me enjoy my time here as much as I do.

Winter Park High School will keep an ongoing tradition strong Friday, April 20, through Saturday, April 21, as its choral department performs the 19th annual Night on Broadway at the Ann Derflinger Auditorium on the main high school campus. Every year has a different theme, and this installment is taking audi ence members back to the glory days of the The Great American Songbook, which includes music by George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin during the 1920s through the 1940s. A second act also will feature the theme of an American Jukebox musical, which takes existing popular songs and creates a story around it. The students will take the audience on a musical trip through time from the music of the 1950s like Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash all the way to music from the early 2000s with Green Day. The performance, titled Night on Broadway 2018: The American Songbook, involves between 275 and 300 chorus students, pit orchestra members and several volunteers coming together for one blowout production. Even a professional Broadway choreographer comes in from New York to work with the students. The opening night performance was held 7:30 p.m. April 19. Were very excited every year, its a very daunting process; its a fully immersive experience for our students, Winter Park High School director of choral activities Matthew Swope said. We put up the entire show from start to finish in four weeks, and it involves every student in our program. Were covering about 105 years of music history, so hopefully theres something for everybody in there, he said. Night on Broadway began 19 years ago to honor Winter Park High School student Tyler Rush, who was killed in a car crash in 1998. He was super passionate about musical theater, so after his death, they started this event called Night on Broadway in his memory and to honor his spirit and to keep it alive, Swope said.

Proceeds from ticket sales also benefit the Tyler Rush Memorial Scholarship Fund, which helps any student who has had at least a year in the choral department go on to pursue higher education and college. Since the event started, in the past 19 years, weve raised (more than) $141,000 for scholarships, Swope said. Thats the thing that makes it a bit special in addition to just being a high-school musical production. Winter Park High School students such as Jake Rotz are excited to take the stage. Night on Broadway is like my favorite part of the entire year, because I want to study musical theater, Rotz said. I love chorus and I love the music we do throughout the year, but Night on Broadway is a whole differ ent experience, because it incor porates so much dance and acting and pop music. Youre close with the people around you in the department, and you learn so much about yourself and the people you work with every day, but this brings a whole other aspect of it. Student Brooke Livingston said theres a strong bond between the students in the production. Its just incredible to be a part of and getting to spend all this time with such wonderful people and put on such a meaningful and powerful show, Livingston said.

6 ARTS + CULTURE | FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2018 TIM TOTTENWRIGHT IN YOUR BACKYARD: FRANK LLOYD WRIGHTS FLORIDA WORKB ACK BY P O P ULAR DEMAND TUESDAY, 5/8, 6:30 P. M. 271330 27281316x3Adv Season Mag June edition WPO house 179027Winter Park has become the temporary destination for the painting following a nearly fourmonth restoration process at the ArtCare Conservation Studio in Miami an undertaking that was financially supported by the Elizabeth Morse Genius Foundation in Winter Park. The perimeter of the canvas was repaired, distortions were flattened, and surface grime and old varnish were removed. The move to Miami in October was the first time the painting had left its Vermont home since it was installed in 1873. It is a privilege to be able to present this masterpiece of a painting in Winter Park for our visitors, museum director of public affairs and publications Catherine Hinman said. It has not been shown outside of St. Johnsbury for 145 years, and it will likely not travel again in our lifetime. The painting was a commissioned work done by Bierstadt in 1867. Its creation was inspired by the Wests raw and rugged beauty, based on sketches and photographs Bierstadt made while traveling through Californias Yosemite Valley by stagecoach and horseback. For many Americans, the painting that would stem from these images would be their first look at the wild soaring vistas of the western territories. Bierstadt was one of the most celebrated artists of his time, and this painting of Yosemite, his largest canvas at that time, became famous through published reviews, Hinman said. When it went on a three-city tour in 1867, it served as an introduction to the beauty of the American West to the curious residents of the East. Its not only a work of art, its a historical document. The painting originally belonged to the American financier who commissioned the paint ing for $25,000: LeGrand Lock wood, who planned to display the painting in his home in Norwalk, Connecticut. After Lockwood died, the painting was auctioned and pur chased by Horace Fairbanks in St. Johnsbury. Fairbanks sought to give back to his community and founded the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum in 1871 to house a col lection of books and artwork. He had The Domes of the Yosemite placed there roughly two years later. There is also a Winter Park connection within the history of the storied painting. Charles Hosmer Morse, the industrialist and phi lanthropist for whom the Morse Museum is named, was born and raised in St. Johnsbury. Horace Fairbanks brother, Franklin, was also a friend of Morse and an early investor in Winter Park real estate. Fairbanks Avenue is even named after Franklin. They all knew each other, Hinman said. Horace Fairbanks, who bought this painting, was a little older than Charles and Frank lin, but they had this sense that a community should have access to art, education and books. Bierstadts painting catches the eyes of visitors as soon as the step into the room at the Morse Museum. That was the case for visitor Margaret Donnelly, who had heard murmurs about the painting. Its just impressive; you can almost feel the water moving, Donnelly said. Carmen Melian had come to the Morse Museum with her cousin Donnelly to see the comprehensive collection of works by Louis Comfort Tiffany, but had heard that they could not miss the Bier stadt. A lot of these artists made their living on traveling paintings at the time, because there were no movies, Melian said. Theyre sometimes better than the real thing, because its a composite. You just go straight in. You sort of meander into the painting. The whole thing is very uplifting. Hinman said one thing is for certain: You have to see The Domes of the Yosemite to believe it. Now the painting has been returned to its original glory by the expert conservation team in Miami, and visitors to the Morse are seeing the painting just as it was seen in 1867, Hinman said. It is luminous and seductive. You have to see it to truly experience its impact. Pictures cant convey its emotion and drama.MasterpieceCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 r f n tt t b f r fn r n n r rfn tfbb b rfb bbbrf frrfbbff r bbrf frrfbff n bbrf frrfbff n n tb tb nfrfr frfrffrf rfrrrf rfrfrfrrrrr frrfrf ffffrrff tffrrfffrf rfffffr rfrffrf rffrrrffrf fffrff fr fff rrfrnff ftrfr rrfrrfrfrrrrrr frrfrrrrrfr rrrrrr rrfrrfrrrf ffrft rnrrrrf 272813

8 BLACK TIE | FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2018 HARRY SAYERBLACK TIE REPORTERIt takes a lot of work and manpower for nonprofits to put on their charity events. Luckily, theres a group that likes to help with that. The more you give back, the better you feel, said Dan Eshak, president of the Orlando Outreachers. We reach out to charities looking for volunteering opportunities. The group, which started in 2015, comprises more than 40 committed Outreachers who help nonprofits raise funds, register arriving guests and keep things running smoothly, according to Vice President Arielle Brandt. The members come from a variety of backgrounds but share a sense of selflessness. Were a group of professionals; we work nine to five jobs, Brandt said. But basically, all of us came home one day and said, Were not getting enough out of life we have people from every walk of life. We have computer engineers, we have lawyers, we have two deejays and a girl (who is) a personal investigator. She said over time, and especially in recent months, the group has become more popular and busier. What was once a smaller, more infrequent volunteer schedule has blossomed into a busy, two-eventa-month operation. Although they have a committed team, there are 40 additional members who help when they can throughout the year and others who sometime pitch in from the groups Facebook page. Rather than working exclusively with a nonprofit, the group votes to work with a number of organizations throughout the year and have more than 15 organizations mostly across Orange County with which they have chosen to work in 2018. The Outreachers enjoy helping Covenant House, which assists homeless and runaway teenagers. They have had a longstanding relationship with Maitlands New Hope for Kids nonprofit, which comforts grieving families and grants wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses, and will be helping the Art of the Vine gala run smoothly April 20. Sev eral of the Outreachers have gone through the New Hope For Kids bereavement program and comforted families that have lost a child or children that have lost a sibling. For Eshak, an Outreacher-vol unteer-turned-president, the Outreachers unifying sense of charity arrived early. While he joined the group in December 2015 and became president in February 2018, his history of altruism began when he was a young man growing up in Egypt. It started with the loss of my mother when I was 17; she was very sick with cancer, Eshak said. It was a changing point in my life, she was a very sacrificial person. I said, You know what? Id like to do more than just have fun as a teenager. I never regretted that decision. Eshak traveled to villages where he helped build houses and gave people food and reading lessons. He moved to West Virginia when he was 23 and started educating fellow immigrants and helped ease them into their new communities. The Outreachers prefer events that can develop emotional connections and lasting relationships with Orlando residents. When we get a volunteer opportunity, I want to know its going to be working with an actual human being on a project, Brandt said. That way we build those lasting relationships.
