Packed into the librarys activ ity room where tables and walls were lined with people local residents took an hour-and-ahalf to voice their concerns to Orange County Commissioner Emily Bonilla (District 5) about the possibility of Maitland Avenue being reduced from four to two lanes. But before the night could even start off with discussion, confusion spilled through the crowd as many thought the meeting was solely about Maitland Avenue it wasnt. The meeting was an opportunity for Bonilla to hear from her constituents about general issues. Ive been having these town halls all across the district and the purpose of them is to hear the concerns of the citizens and also see how we can work together to solve them, Bonilla said to the crowd. Instead of residents lining up at a microphone, Bonilla posed three questions: What concerns do you have in your community?; What do you believe the Commission can do for you?; How can you, help me, take care of your concerns?SEE CONCERNS PAGE 4 VOLUME 30, NO. 27 Winter Park Police joins Neighbors app Ocers will use the app by Ring to keep residents informed about crime and help catch criminals.TIM FREEDASSOCIATE EDITORThe Winter Park Police Department always tells residents to see something, say something, but now officers are using technology to take that idea one step further. Winter Parks Police Department announced last month that they recently joined the Neighbors app by Ring, which allows residents to post alerts or important updates to neighbors in their community. Police officers are now plugged in to stay up-to-date on any important happenings in local neighborhoods. Once you opt in to it, youre basically partnering with the police department and your neighbors to help reduce crime in your neighborhood like the neighborhood watch, Lt. John Montgomery of the Winter Park Police Department said.

2 WINTER PARK / MAITLAND OBSERVER | FRIDAY, JULY 6, 2018 Allison Olcsvay Three years ago, Georgia Ellison was facing the same prognosis that she has watched her mother suer with for de cades. The progressive osteopenia would someday develop into osteoporosis, bringing on devastating broken bones and pain. My mother is 93 now, and Ive watched her suer so much; I just dont want that to happen to me, Ellison said. Medication to strengthen her bones never produced signicant results, and after years of taking them, she decided to try a new course of action. Following the recommendation of a friend she signed on with Elite Strength and Fitness of Winter Park and began following a twice-weekly strength-training regimen designed to increase her muscle mass and bone density. At her next DEXA scan to measure density, Ellisons doctor noticed a big change and she was able to stop taking her medication. Success stories like Ellisons dont come easy though; it took months of intense workouts with the guidance of personal trainers to get there. At 64, Les Rinehart, one of Elites trainers, knows the challenges his clients face. After 33 years in the tness industry, the former strength coach for the Charlotte Hornets retired in 2007, only to come out of retirement a few years ago to join Elite be cause, he said, he saw the value in what they oered their clients. The equip ment here is top of the line and the techniques produce results like no other, Rinehart said. At Elite, education is as important as the equipment. Be fore clients spend anytime working out, they share their medical history, goals and concerns with trainers who develop a plan that covers time inside and outside of the gym. Clients needs are evaluated and we give them a detailed analysis of what they need to do, especially at home, to accomplish their goals, said owner Monte Mitchell. Homework might include keeping food and exercise journals to learn more about their habits, especially if weight loss is a goal. The gym also oers a 12-week group nutrition workshop to their members, guaranteeing results for their clients, provided they follow all the recommendations made during their consultation. 70-year-old physician Dr. Maria Bors has been a client of Elite for seven years and nds that training there ts quite nicely into her busy lifestyle. The 20-minute workouts are easy for me to t in and I nd them easy to commit to, Bors said. Rather than working out with sweaty, bulked-up gym rats, Elites clients nd an almost Zen-like atmosphere, with trainers attentive to their every motion. Speaking in tones of calm assurance, trainers oer equal parts encouragement and challenge, pushing clients to new levels. The workouts are physically demanding, but not in the way one might expect. Motions are slow and intensely controlled, demanding maximum eort from muscles while barely breaking a sweat. Many clients dont even change out of oce clothes, Rinehart said. They simply dont need to. Before beginning with Elite, Bors suffered from daily back pain, but after just a few months in the gym, she experienced a noticeable change in pain levels and now rarely suers at all. Its been remarkable for me, she said. I can feel how strong I am, especially when I am traveling carrying luggage. I have a strength I never had before. The strength training is very good for preventing bone loss, said Bors, which is something we all need as we age.ADVERTORIAL 407-740-7750 1312 Palmetto Avenue, Winter Park, FL 32789 www.elitestrengthandtness.comMention this ad for a free consultation.

WINTER PARK / MAITLAND OBSERVER | FRIDAY, JULY 6, 2018 3 TIM FREEDASSOCIATE EDITORIts been two-and-a-half years since owners Chelsie and Jamie Savage opened The Sanctum off Colonial Drive in Orlando and now theyre ready to bring their fresh flavors to Winter Park. The Savages are opening up a new healthy, vegan eatery concept at 155 E. Morse Blvd. called Proper and Wild, which the couple said will hopefully be open by this fall. The new restaurant allows chef Chelsie Savage to showcase her sense of fresh, healthy cuisine to a city thats known for its unique eateries. The Savages first concept features salads and grain bowls, where as Proper and Wild will have an expanded menu thanks to a more complete kitchen that includes a pizza oven, a flat top grill and gas cooking. Guests can now expect everything from flatbreads to burgers along with several brunch items on Saturday and Sunday. We were talking about wanting to do another concept with the same integrity of ingredients, and this space just happened to fall into our lap, Chelsea said. We decided it would be a really good opportunity to come to Winter Park. From the coffee to the poke crostini its version of avocado toast just about everything Proper and Wild will oer a wide array of healthy, delicious meals.The creative minds behind The Sanctum are bringing a new health-conscious eatery to Winter Park.A fresh ideaThe Sanctum offers features organic ingredients, and Proper and Wild plans to take the same careful approach. The restaurant avoids using processed items, so no hydrogenated oils or food dyes. Everything is made from scratch. I think that what were doing is something that Winter Parks really going to embrace, Jamie said. I feel like theyre really ready for what were doing, which is bringing really incredibly-flavored, fresh food. Were excited. Though most of the menu would be considered vegan, a por tion of the menu is vegetarian as Jamie and Chelsie Savage are opening a new restaurant in Winter Park called Proper and Wild. SEE SOMETHING PAGE 4 BY TROY HERRINGASSOCIATE EDITORIn the heart of downtown Winter Park, two Rollins College alums have a plan to help make the world green. At their office located at 101 S. New York Ave. Walker Hay maker and Ari Davis are continuing their research that started at Rollins and putting it toward developing concepts to help clean up soil pollutants caused by cars and gas stations. We started as a MBA project at Rollins Crummer Graduate School of Business basically a commercialization project to try and take one of NASAs patented technologies and actually commercialize that and come up with a business model around it, Davis said. The big problem that we were trying to address was the issue of brown field sites specifically pollution at old gas stations. A lot of the old gas stations that are out there have under ground storage tanks that leak, and so we tried to come up with this commercialization program around solving that problem, he said. And the biggest issue, the two explained, was that going into the research for the project, neither quite grasped how large and dire the situation was. We knew the problem existed, but we really didnt know how big it was, so when we started looking into the soil contamination pollution area we saw that there were over 450,000 brown field sites in the U.S., Haymaker said. Through 12 months of research and trial-and-error the duo who became friends while going through the MBA program havent found the perfect solution, but said that the best bet may come through the use of enzymatic remediation technology. The process requires pouring liquid over the polluted soil mixing it into the soil so that it breaks down the pollutant, which releases oxygen and carbon diox ide on the other side, Davis said. Were taking an already existing technology and going to fur ther develop it, so we actually havent developed that technology yet, Davis said. And thats the whole mission of this company to develop this. If the two can crack the code and develop their concept, the technology that is created could Rollins grads go greenWalker Haymaker and Ari Davis new Winter Park start up, The Soil Company, is hoping to make the world a greener place.

If you see something going on in your neighborhood, obviously we want you to call the police and get us out there, but you could also post to your Ring app and your neighbors can also look at it and get information. The app was launched back in May by doorbell-with-a-camera company Ring with the intention of trying to prevent crime. Anyone can download Neighbors onto their phone or Ring camera device outside their home. One of the main applications of Neighbors for the police department is access to video capabilities. Officers will contact residents if they believe one of their outdoor cameras may have captured footage of a burglar or thief. Lets say youre a resident and you woke up in the morning and you find out someone broke into your car on your driveway, Montgomery said. You report that crime to the police, we show up, and we can send out an alert through Neighbors saying There was a burglary in your neighborhood last night. Are you willing to share your Ring video with us from 1 a.m.to 3 a.m.? We can look to see if anyone went by the house, walked by or drive by in a suspicious vehicle. The camera is just extra eyes. Its more neighbors looking out for each other. Montgomery stressed that the police wouldnt be trying to pry into the personal lives of residents through the app, and that any access to the video capabilities would only come with direct permission from a resident, he said. Another use for Neighbors from the perspective of the police is keeping that open line of communication with residents during critical situations, like a suspect on the loose or a recently stolen item, Montgomery said. Its kind of like what we do now with all our other social media, he said. If we have an issue in a neighborhood, we can post realtime data on the Neighbors app and theyll get the information right way. Montgomery said he hopes that the departments use of the app will do one simple thing: make neighborhoods safer. Its no big secret that the more eyes you have out there, the better it is for us, Montgomery said. It helps us. Solving crime unless you absolutely stumble upon it we rely a lot on the neighbors and witnesses and people along that line. The more eyes and ears we have out there, the easier it is for us to solve crime and get the information we need to to solve the crimes. We like the fact that we work with our community to build trust to make our communities and our neighborhoods safer.Its no big secret that the more eyes you have out there, the better it is for us. Lt. John MontgomeryApp to help reduce crime in neighborhoodsCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 well with an assortment of dairy and egg options. Chelsie said she tries to stay away from slapping the label vegan on her restaurants, as she gets many customers who simply want fresh, organic ingredients. We really focus on what it is that we do serve versus what we dont serve, Chelsie said. I feel like sometimes when you hear the word vegetarian, you think This is what they dont serve, but it should really be a plant-centric restaurant celebrating local farmers. The Savages said the new restaurant will certainly have the same essence of The Sanctum, but hungry patrons can expect something unique and special at Proper and Wild. Were just looking to open up a really fun and elevated space in Winter Park, Chelsie said. The type of cooking that we do really speaks to peoples intellect. I know theres just a real health-conscious community in Winter Park, who also want a fun place to go out to eat that they can make choices that they feel good about but also a great place to make friends or go on a date that has more of a refined experience. The intention of Proper and Wild is to create that space. Winter Park just doesnt have anything like this.Proper and Wild will oer a wide array of healthy, delicious meals. The intention of Proper and Wild is to create that space. Winter Park just doesnt have anything like this. Chelsie Savage Something uniqueCONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 2017, Haymaker and Davis began customer research as they looked to develop a clean energy bicycle that could be easily used for local commuting. Called the Soil Bike, the startups foldable aluminumbodied bicycle is an environmentally minded persons best friend, and is currently looking for funding on Kickstarter. The 250W electric brushless motor can hit top speeds of around 15-18mph and has a 50-mile range (with pedal assist). And of course if the motor runs out of juice, riders can simply use the pedals to get around or take them to the nearest wall outlet to plug in and recharge. The concept for the bike came from Haymaker and Davis want to add another dimension to their fight against soil pollution caused by cars. So far the startup has three bikes completed one for each of them and one for their mentor John Rife, who founded the East End Market that theyve been using to showcase and promote the company. We also figured out that we wanted to sign something on the other end of the spectrum that could also be preventative for community pollution, Davis said. So we also designed an electric bike at the same time, that we could create some awareness for what we are doing, but also prevent people from utilizing their car for local trips. The passion these two conser vationists have can easily be seen in these most recent projects, and in their backgrounds as well. Haymaker, a Florida native, has a family history of conservation with his father and two sisters playing roles in helping to make the environment around them a better place. Likewise Davis, a New Zealand native, has long had a passion for the outdoors and his family too has been big into conservation. The Soil Company and its cur rent and future projects are just the next step in helping the world become a better place. Theres a really good quote by Bill Gates that we tell people and it kind of connects; Treatment without prevention is simply unsustainable, Davis said. So on one end of the spectrum we are trying to develop a solution to fix it (soil pollution), then on the other end we are developing solutions to prevent it.Go green Soil CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 We also gured out that we wanted to sign something on the other end of the spectrum that could also be preventative for community pollution,Ari DavisFrom there groups at tables would take 20 minutes to write down their answers in a brainstorming session, which based on the constant murmurs was not what those in attendance wanted. As the voices grew louder and as questions pinged across the room, Bonilla handed the mic over to Renzo Nastasi the transportation planning manager for Orange County. For the next hour-and-a-half Nastasi was bombarded with questions all focusing on the road diet plan for Maitland Avenue. Three to four years ago we were approached by the city of Maitland and they asked if the county would be willing to transfer the ownership of the road everything from maintenance to anything associated with the roadway from the county to the city, Nastasi said. Given that Maitland Avenue is completely surrounded by the city, it made sense to us that we were amenable to transforming the road. I should note that these requests are not unique, theyre not rare, he said. This is standard practice for us. At the moment, there is a drafted agreement between the county and the city, meaning that the next step is for the city to take action if it passes it will go back to the Orange County Board of County Commissioners for consideration. While the transfer of the roadway wouldnt cost money itself, the city would take on costs for maintenance and upkeep. Of all the questions asked, costs was one of the least discussed items, while issues like traffic and safety were the most discussed concerns which were shared by every resident in attendance. One man in attendance spoke about his medical practice and the possible issues of increased traffic on the busy road which sees around 22,500 vehicles a day. As youve heard from people who spoke up many of whom have businesses or medical practices all along Maitland Avenue theyre all highly concerned that what is already a slow traffic street would become impossible for their needs and for transporting patients, said Maitland resident Mark Estrin, who was at the meeting with his wife. Estrin also said that when you look at all the apartment complexes developing in Maitland, the matter of congestion on the roadway will just get worse. Another popular complaint seemed to center around the issue of safety, but Nastasi said that while those concerns were noted, the two-lane option would be safer than the four-lane option. Theres a lot of debate in regards to is a four-lane safer than a two-lane? And what about accidents?, so intuitively you would think that a two-lane road with a lower speed would be safer than a four-lane road posted at 45 miles per hour those are just the facts Nastasi said. If you have lower speeds, and narrower roads its a safer road.CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1Concerns for safer roads

The boys and girls squads pace back-and-forth inside a rink designed for indoor soccer where they enjoy a quick scrimmage to hone their skills for the tournament of the year. Unlike the U.S. Mens National Team who failed to make this years World Cup in Russia these two local teams will be playing on the international stage at this years San Marino Cup in Italy. This is our third tour in a row, and each year we have gone to a different location and this year we chose Italy, said Grace Bowman, the girls head coach. Well do a bit of sightseeing before we get to San Marino, but ultimately it is a vacation trip for everybody, plus we get the added benefit of getting to compete abroad. The organization has taken two trips before this years tournament which takes place July 8-14 with the national team competing in Spain last year and England the year before. For this years competition, which is noted as being the biggest Italian youth soccer tour nament, the XL squads will be tasked with taking on teams from all corners of the globe. On the Cups website it states that there will be 100 teams competing from 18 countries that represent four continents. The field alone is an obstacle upon itself, and it can be much more difficult when youre work ing with a team that has only truly been together since January, Bowman said. Kids for both the boys and girls squads come from a background of different club teams, so getting them all on the same page is both challenging and rewarding. Its a unique situation really usually if you go on tour with a team youve been training together for years or at least a few seasons, and have that under your belt, Bowman said. All these kids play at clubs elsewhere, so its been a bit of a challenge for me and Nick to get that team chemistry that would naturally come, but we dont have time to wait for it to come naturally. A lot of the practices that we have been doing have been kind of focused on that and breaking the ice and getting them to get to know each other, she said. For me its quite good to see if you were to compare the first practice when they were being a bit reserved and now characters are coming through and we have a lot of team chemistry going on. Along with the team chemistry has come an overall excitement from players, Bowman said, as the tournament inches closer and closer. On the girls team, players such as forward Camila Dishinger, 13, are hoping to help lead the group to a possible trophy. Dishinger was a part of last years girls team that made it to the final against Spain though they unfortunately fell in a tough matchup. Despite that difficult end, she said there was a lot that she learned from the trip. The way they play over there is completely different in America they play soccer differ ent than they do in Europe, but it was a really fun experience, said Dishinger, who has been play ing the sport since she was 3. (I) got to play soccer and go see the country it was really fun.XL National Teams take aim at international trophiesThe XL National Teams will look to bring home some hardware as they take on teams from around the world at the 2018 San Marino Cup in Italy.

HARRY SAYERBLACK TIE REPORTERThe Harwood-Watson Dance Studios, located at 1015 S. Orlando Ave, recently celebrated two decades of providing dance lessons to Orlando residents. Harwood-Watsons lessons have a distinct line of thinking within every student there is a seed to be nourished. The approach is that we dont do competitive dancing, HarwoodWatson said. That does not really teach the art form it teaches to the trophy, to the reward. We teach to the language and that the artists should truly be the messengers of the world. We should really show whats happening and the emotional side of that. Harwood-Watson moved around the country growing up but spent a large chunk of time in Atlanta, Geor gia where she finished her ballet apprenticeship. She spent years per forming with a company and almost joined a theatre up north before plans fell through. She finally made her way to the Southern Ballet Theatre, soon to be the Orlando Ballet, in the 1970s where she met the theatres founder and her future husband, Kip Har wood. But Eliza says their meeting wasnt love at first sight not even close. Kip and I didnt like each other at all when we met, Eliza said. I thought he was an absolute jerk and he thought I was a queen bee. We always laughed about that. The pair attended a neighborhood backgammon game that turned into a first date. One thing led to the next and the pair were married a few years later. Kip left the Southern Ballet Theatre soon after and Eliza eventually followed she said they both were horses of a different color and ARTS + CULTUREFRIDAY, JULY 6, 2018CENTER FOR INDEPENDENT LIVING IN CENTRAL FLORIDA: Celebrating Independence Gala. 18ORANGEOBSERVER.COMEliza Harwood-Watson is proud of the 20 years shes spent running her dance studio.

The family of John C. Myers, Sr. (1878-1952) has made the single greatest contribution to helping the Cornell Fine Arts Museum build the only Old Masters collection in the Orlando area. John C. Myers fell in love with Old Masters painting during his 1908 honeymoon, when his bride Alice Mould introduced him to Europes museums; by the 1940s he had amassed a very signicant collection, which he often shared in his Ashland, OH home with students from a nearby college. His passion for teaching and learning through art was echoed by his heirs, who generously donated parts of the collection to Ashland College, the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens in Jacksonville and CFAM.THIS WEEK

We felt it was time to pass things on to the next there comes a point where you say I want to create. Like with any big institution, you can and you cant. Kip spent some time working as a chauffeur and then with the Enzian Eliza says they lived a very Bohemian lifestyle but eventually decided with his wife to go back into theatre. They eventually found a piece of property they liked at the edge of Baldwin Park. The studio opened its doors in 1997. Kip handled much of the administrative efforts while Eliza focused on hands-on training with her students. The studio, following Kips passing in 2011, eventually made its way to Winter Park. The Harwood-Watson Dance Studios primarily teaches children starting at age 4 how to dance, though Eliza has older customers too including a handful who have been practicing with Eliza at the studio every week since its opening 20 years ago. Eliza, whose performance style is rooted in the Vaganova school but has since taken a life of its own, says shes proud of the discipline her students learn at her studio something she worries has fallen by the wayside elsewhere. To Eliza, cant is not a word in the English language. The studio had a Happenstance Program, which put a spotlight on upand-coming choreographers that Eliza says helped many performers seen in Orlando theatre companies today. The program ended soon after Kip passed. While several of Elizas students dont fully pursue a career in dance, shes comfortable and satisfied know ing they learned other valuables lessons in her classes. I love when people become excited about learning, she said. Theyre no longer working towards the trophy, theyre excited about the process of learning.CONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 Eliza Harwood-Watson taught her students proper form.
