Work is underway to renovate the little amphitheater at Mead Botanical Garden, which soon will feature new benches, new hardscaping for a wheelchairaccessible seating area and some new trees. The project is part of an ongoing public-private partnership between Mead Botanical Garden Inc. and the city of Winter Parks Parks and Recreation Department. The board and staff at Mead Botanical Gardens are very excited about this project, Mead Gar den Executive Director Cynthia Hasenau said. We knew that it was looking less than its best and the old green benches hadnt been upgraded in many, many years. We took the approach of a longterm, sustainable approach. The old painted plywood benches are being replaced with ipe wood, also known as Brazilian walnut. Its a much sturdier wood that will withstand the elements. Its naturally resistant to rot and decay. Visitors also can expect to see a new paved area at the back of the amphitheater that can accommo date wheelchairs, which enable seniors to get closer at events. Six magnolia trees and a live oak now sit behind the stage as well, Hasenau said. The total price tag of the project falls just under $30,000, Parks and Recreation Director Jason Seeley said. It was a very good initiative between (Mead Garden and the city) to get this little amphitheater upgraded and kind of give it a facelift, Seeley said. The benches in there were painted green and have probably been there since the 80s, if not longer. It was time for those to be brought up to a better standard. Mead Botanical Gardens Inc. took care of the replacement of the benches, and we assisted with removal of some benches and some hardscape work. The nonprofit has been work ing hand-in-hand with the city for a number of years for well over a decade to restore, revitalize and improve the gar den, Hasenau said. When we approach projects like this, part of our reasonability is were identifying enhancements and community needs and opportunities out here in the garden. With this one, the venue itself has some historic implications. Built in 1956 and gifted by a womens group called Fashions in the Garden, the amphitheater has been the site of outdoor weddings, concerts, sunrise services and community events. The original wrought-iron grill work along the perimeter of the amphitheater is there to this day, while the bench seats were added later. Mead Garden also has been working on upgrades to the near by Garden Clubhouse, home to the Winter Park Garden Club. Some recent renovations include new lighting, windows, ceiling tiles and a stage. Other improvements such as new flooring and an ADA-compliant restroom are on the way. Hasenau said she looks for ward to seeing even more community events take place at the little amphitheater now that its receiving a fresh look, which should be finished by the end of September. She added the venue has been the site of thousands of weddings over the years and that the garden may consider hosting a romantic event soon for couples who said, I do, at the little amphitheater. HARRY SAYERBLACK TIE REPORTERAfter months of discussion, the Maitland City Council adopted an ordinance allowing medical marijuana dispensaries in the city limits. The ordinance, crafted follow ing a 180-day extension of the moratorium on decisions regarding medical marijuana, allows dispensaries beyond 500 feet of a school and 1,250 feet of any other operating drugstore or pharmacy. The modification included medical-marijuana dispensaries into the legal definition of pharmacies and drugstores such as Walgreens or CVS. Possible dispensaries looking to set up shop in Maitland will face a number of conditions including an operational alarm system, 24/7 video surveillance system, sufficient lighting from dusk to dawn, as per a Florida statute. As has been the case since the ordinances inception, both Councilwoman Bev Reponen and Mayor Dale McDonald opposed the measure for a number of reasons, including its affect on other businesses; a higher chance of recreational marijuana coming to Maitland; and the fact that Maitland residents can drive to neighboring municipalities to get medical marijuana. For those folks that need the pain relief that medical marijuana provides, thats not an argument having access to this, granted, should be available to everybody, McDonald said. But is it being available to everybody in Maitland better because theres (a facility) in Maitland? Thats my question. The three other council members ultimately remained steadfast in their support, deciding the inclusion would be innocuous enough to not prove a harmful effect on Maitland as a whole. The ordinance passing 3-2. Weve gone through it; theyre not a drug issue, Councilman Mike Thomas said. Not as far as drug proliferation. Theyre bor ing little storefronts where people can get medicine. There are times where even Casselberry isnt such an easy commute. I just dont see any reason not to do this. Sixty, almost 70% of our residents voted yes on that referendum. The new law will go into effect immediately. IN OTHER NEWS Maitland executed its annual agreement with the Orange County School Board to fund school resource ocers beginning in July 2018 through June of 2019. This year will have an additional ocer on sta at each public school in compliance with the Marjory Stonemason Doug las High School Safety Act. The agreement will cost $157,500. The city executed a sidewalk easement between the city and the Maitland City Centre. The mixed-use project will become responsible for sidewalks sur rounding the project. The city approved both the purchase of 45 body cameras and related hardware as well as a ve-year agreement with Axon Enterprises. The rst years equipment will cost $55,356 and will be funded through forfeiture funds while following years will cost $43,596 through the normal budget process.

4 WINTER PARK / MAITLAND OBSERVER | FRIDAY, AUGUST 31, 2018 City Commissioners on Monday, Aug. 27, in response to frequent complaints from residents about airplanes that seem to be flying lower than usual. Central Florida is a major artery for commercial flights because its at the heart of where flights are allowed in the state, said CEO Phil Brown of the Greater Orlando Avi ation Authority, which oversees operation management at Orlando International Airport and Orlando Executive Airport. Military bases lining the east and west coasts of Florida along with the Kennedy Space Center all have thousands of feet of restricted airspace. What that means as a practical matter is that you have allowed commercial flights to come right down the middle of the penin sula, Brown said. Theyre either going to Miami, Ft. Lauderdale or, in some instances, Tampa. Judith-Ann Jerrette, GOAA assistant director of operations and noise abatement officer, said Orlando International Airport is the busiest airport in the state, with more than 350,000 opera tions in the last 12 months. All of the air traffic has to be funneled not only from the Unites States but around the world down our narrow peninsula, she said. Jerrette told commissioners the Federal Aviation Administration is responsible for air traffic in the United States, including routes and altitudes. Pilots heading south to MCO must cross Orlando Executive Airport at either 2,200 feet or 2,400 feet depending on the approach. Winter Park residents are mostly impacted by south-flow arrivals, Jerrette said. From executive airport onwards, (pilots) have to steepen their descent, and the challenge is that aircraft today are designed to stay aloft. Jerrette said she has heard the complaints from Winter Park resi dents that planes seem to be flying lower, but a study of flights pass ing over Winter Park from Janu ary 2016 to July 2018 shows the averages altitudes only varied by about 50 feet, although there were some flights that flew lower since the final chart displayed averages, Jerrette said. Although the altitudes may be consistent, the number of flights has increased. A year ago, MCO averaged 868 daily flights; today the airport sees more than 1,000 daily flights, said Jerrette, adding that flights also start earlier and go later into the night, sometimes taking off at 1 a.m. Theres a very narrow time of quiet, Jerrette said. The number of flights going directly over Winter Park may increase even further with the implementation of NextGen, a new air-traffic control system. NextGen has yet to arrive at Flor ida airports but is expected to be implemented by next year. Residents will often ask, Can we impose curfews at MCO?Jerrette said. We cannot. The restrictions on aircraft types and hours of operation fall entirely within the purview of the federal government. The presentation left commis sioners with a major question: What now? What Im hearing from you is not only can we not expect improvement, but its probably going to get worse with the imple mentation of NextGen at the air port, City Commissioner Carolyn Cooper said. Is there an avenue that we should be aware of that we could pursue in an organized fashion so that we might actu ally be able to have some impact? You hate to tell people, Theres no hope. I certainly dont want to do that. Staff was instructed to work with the GOAA to obtain data regarding how many planes were flying outside the average alti tudes. I dont think the situation is hopeless, Mayor Steve Leary said. I appreciate that theres going to be outreach to the community (with NextGen). ... We will cer tainly be there. Im very excited; Trinity Prep is a great school with a really good faculty, staff and student popula tion, Towers said. Its a beautiful part of the world. A couple things I like about Trinity Prep is its co-ed, and its middle and upper school, so we can focus on ministry as the students are becoming young adults. I enjoy talking with stu dents who are a little older. Towers will be in charge of pas toral care throughout the school community, leading chapel and coordinating community service. He also will be teaching introduc tion to the Bible and introduction to ethics. The thing you really cant fig ure for is the life cycle, emotional needs that people have with fam ily, Towers said. Part of my min istry is trying to make sure that you support people in all aspects of their lives. I get to share in the joys and the challenges that we face as human beings. DRAWN TO MINISTRY Towers grew up in New York out side of Rochester and knew early on that he was called to serve the church. Some people have lightning bolts, so to speak, where theres some dramatic life switch that says, Im going to commit myself to service of God, Towers said. From the earliest memories at age 6, I had a sense that I was going to be going into the ministry. After graduating from high school, Towers attended Hough ton College for his bachelors degree and Bexley Hall at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School for his masters. He also obtained a certificate of advance study from Seabury Western Theological Seminary in Illinois and his doc toral degree at Virginia Theologi cal Seminary. Following graduation from seminary and ordination, Towers served as a chaplain at the Bishop Brent School in the Philippines, as well as in Guam at St. Johns School and Church. That was followed by roles as associate dean for academic affairs at Seabury Western Theological Seminary and as a chaplain of St. Marks School of Texas. It was at St. Marks that Towers met now-Trinity Head of School Byron Lawson, with whom he served for three years. MILITARY SERVICE In 2010, Towers realized a dream that was many months in the mak ing when he was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Navy. His father was a veteran of the Korean War, and Towers always had been interested in service as a chaplain in the military. At the time, there was a serious need for chaplains in the Navy, Towers said. The age waiver was 41, so I joined the military at the unusually seasoned age of 41. Towers served as chaplain in the military for eight years. One of the highlights included his time as a squadron chaplain for a U.S. Marines aviation squadron at the joint reserve base in Fort Worth. In some ways, my experience in the military was not unlike minis try with young adults most of the people that I worked with in the military were fresh out of high school and facing the kind of stress that any young adult might face, Towers said. With the added chal lenge of combat stress, they faced relational stress and occupational stress. (They faced) the challenges of being away from home often for the first time in their life other than basic training. Towers also was stationed in South Korea as a force chaplain, serving as the only chaplain sup porting reserve activity on the South Korean peninsula. While Id hoped to go to the Middle East, it was a real blessing to be able to serve in South Korea, because it was the 60th anniversa ry of the signing of the armistice, Towers said. The South Korean government had invited service members who had served in the Korean War to come back. I got to conduct a series of war memorials on battlefields in South Korea with soldiers that had not been in Korea for 60 years. The highlight of my eight years in the Navy I think would be the chance to speak with and learn more about what life was like dur ing the Korean War, he said. RETURN TO THE STATES After returning from Korea, Tow ers went into the reserves and also worked as rector of St. Johns Epis copal Church in Ithaca, New York. He then returned to Dallas, where he served as the chaplain of the Episcopal School of Dallas and associate priest of St. Michael and All Angels Church. Towers just got out of the U.S. Navy in July after being out of active duty for several years. Back in June, Lawson reached out to Towers about coming to Trinity, and the former military chaplain gratefully accepted the new post. Towers said hes excited to start his new role at Trinity Prep. The students have great spirit, are kind and thoughtful, and tal ented in many ways, Towers said. The opportunity to grow in the practice of my ministry is obvi ous to me. I really look forward to becoming more embedded in the community and finding ways to help these fine young people get ready for college.

Thats why entities such as the Brookshire Fund and Maitland Middle School Fund exist in the first place to raise money for a variety of projects. Although the new year just started in the last two weeks, its never too early to start planning fundraisers to help fill the needs of a school especially when it comes to the bigger projects, said Teresa Donaldson, who helps lead the Brookshire Fund. We were set up several years ago by a group of parents who wanted to fund for larger ticket projects some of the projects that the school may need, that the schools individual budget may not allow for, Donaldson said. Or maybe some enhancements the principal or leadership at the school may not think are a priority, but the parents really want to provide those kind of opportunities for the school. At Brookshire, one of the big projects left over from last year is a large covered awning that will cover the outdoor area of the cafeteria. Donaldson said the umbrellas that shade the tables have been replaced numerous times because of weather. Although the project was supposed to be done over summer, a delay pushed plans back. Right now, the awning is planned to be finished by sometime in September. But as far as projects looking to be funded this year, Donaldson said there are a few items of want that teachers have let the fund know by means of a survey. A lot of teachers are looking for additional reading resources like new books or different reading resources, and thats an area where teachers feel like we need more tools, Donaldson said. I think that is going to be a big focus whether its a new reading room or literally new sets of grade level books. To help fund for these new reading resources, as well as possible new tech for classrooms which came in a close second on the survey the fund is planning a couple of fundraising events between now and the end of the year. Parents were invited to a fall kickoff Aug. 25 to discuss the upcoming projects in a simple meet-and-greet with Donaldson and the fund. Then on Oct. 20, the fund will host its annual bash a signature event held at East End Market. NEW COMPUTERS FOR TEACHERS AT MAITLANDAt Maitland Middle School, the need for new computers is the project the Maitland Fund has adopted this year. After talking with school administrators and teachers, there is currently a tremendous need for new devices, said Whitney Langholz, president of the Maitland Fund. My question is always, What is your dream? and so he (Principal Andrew Leftakis) just kind of sat down and talked about some of the things he would like to see happen at the school if he had money to spend, Langholz said. Maitland is a great school we are lucky to be going to school there but we can also enhance things that happen in the classroom and the instructional opportunities that are at the school. Replacing teachers computers will be a big task for the fund currently, there are around 51 computers utilized by the staff. Each costs about $1,000. The highest of goals was to reach the $50,000 mark in donations, Langholm said. Currently, the fund has raised $11,000, and that was before school started. To help fund the new computers and other, smaller projects the fund organized a back-toschool event Aug. 22 at The Copper Rocket for teachers and par ents. A casino night fundraiser will take place Oct. 11. That should be a decent moneymaker for us, as well as acting as a friendraiser, Langholz said. We just need people to know that we are there, and we just need people to come out and have fun.Local schools raise funds for new yearIts the beginning of the academic year, but schools such as Brookshire Elementary and Maitland Middle schools are planning fundraisers to help fund both big and small projects.My question is always, What is your dream? and so he (Principal Andrew Leftakis) just kind of sat down and talked about some of the things he would like to see happen at the school if he had money to spend, Whitney Langholz

These are the unofficial election results, as provided by the Orange County Supervisor of Elections as of press time Wednesday. STATE REP. DISTRICT 47 Winter Park resident Stockton Reeves said he wanted to make a difference in Tallahassee, and now hes moved another step closer to doing just that as he captured the Republican nomination for State Rep. District 47. He defeated opponent Mikaela Nix with 7,853 votes (54.55%). Nix finished with 6,544 votes (45.45%). After knocking on 2,569 hous es personally and losing 16 pounds and being out there and talking to as many people as we talked to, its just an overwhelming sense of relief, Reeves said. Its not so much joy as it is relief, and know ing that theres a lot of hard work ahead. Im not afraid of that hard work. In fact, Im looking forward to it. U.S. REP. DISTRICT 7 Stephanie Murphy moved one step closer to retaining her U.S. Rep. District 7 seat as she handily defeated Chardo Richardson for the Democratic nomination. The Winter Park local captured 21,506 Orange County votes (86.67%). Richardson finished with 3,307 votes (13.33%). I am incredibly honored to earn the Democratic nomination for Congress, and I look forward to a civil general election campaign based on ideas, values, and our different visions for the future of this nation, Murphy said in a pre pared statement. My campaign is about jobs, security and equality, and Im proud of the grassroots support weve received across Central Florida. STATE REP. DISTRICT 30 Joy Goff-Marcil moved up in the world on the political spectrum and captured the Democratic nomination for State Rep. Dis trict 30. She served on the Mait land City Council since 2013 but decided to broaden her scope as a public servant. She defeated opponents Clark Anderson and Brendan Ramrez with a total of 2,323 votes (50.65%). Ramrez earned 1,174 votes (25.60%) and Anderson fin ished with 1,089 votes (23.75%).

After traveling across the state pushing his campaign, King fin ished with 4,495 Orange County votes (4.55%) and fell short of the Democratic nomination for gov ernor. Opponent Andrew Gillum won the election in the biggest surprise of the night with the help of 39,952 Orange County votes (40.42%). King addressed a group of ardent supporters at The Alfond Inn fol lowing the election. Eighteen months ago, we began this journey, he said. We began this campaign to try and change the future of Florida politics. Together, you and I answered the call to serve. The forces against us, as we soon found out, were strong: the political establishment, Big Sugar, the NRA, transitional poli tics and transactional politicians.

Located at the corner of South Keller Road and Fennell Street, the Curry Bowl is offering traditional Indian and Indo-Chinese cuisine for locals looking for something new. The restaurant, which held its grand opening on Saturday, July 28, began a new adventure for husband and wife duo Sanjeeva and Pushpa Vallura, and chef/partner Venkateswara Gunga. We observed that there was no proper food especially Asian, Sanjeeva said. So we targeted this audience to go out and have this authentic Indian we know how to prepare authentic Indian dishes not only (from) South India, but we also (create) Indo-Chinese items. The dishes served up at Curry Bowl concentrate on four main Indian dishes: curries, biriyanis, tandoori and dosas. Of all of the restaurants items, curry is probably one of the most familiar for Americans, Sanjeeva said, which makes it a good place to start for those new to Indian food. Curry refers to a number of dishes from South India that generally feature the use of complex combinations of spices or herbs. One popular Curry Bowl special is the tandoori chicken half, which consists of chicken marinated with the restaurants own special spices and grilled in a traditional clay tandoori oven. The tandoori is a favorite of his, Sanjeeva said. I always enjoy the chicken tandoori, Sanjeeva said. Its very good, so I always go with that. Another delicious meal locals will be able to try is the chick en tikka a dish that includes boneless chicken marinated with creamy tikka sauce. Like many of the dishes, the chicken is grilled in the clay oven. Many of the dishes you find at Curry Bowl feature the ever popular use of chicken, but there are a variety of meats as you make your way through the menu. Fish and shrimp can be found in the non-vegetarian appetizers, while lamb and goat are offered up in a variety of their own meals; such as the lamb curry which includes tender lamb marinated and cooked in a curry and goat chettinadu, which is goat cooked with natural spices, coconut milk and pepper. If you are new to Indian cuisine, the names and ingredients may be a bit intimidating. Luckily, Sanjeeva and his staff are always open to helping you find a nice entry into the world of Indian food. Most of the time, our staff will advise them on the dishes and tell them about the dishes, Sanjeeva said. Aside from curry items, we always advise them to try (items like) the chicken tikka. For those looking for meals with no chicken or meat in general Curry Bowl also has a selection of vegetarian meals. From the restaurants aloo mutter (potato cooked with green peas and Curry Bowls own onion gravy) to the chaina masala (chickpeas cooked with North Indian spices), Curry Bowl is sure to have something for folks wanting a healthy meal as well satisfying every ones hunger. Most of the people they like vegetarian stuff, because theyre health conscious, Sanjeeva said. People love those items and theyre always attracted to traditional masalas.

HIGH 5 TROY HERRING ASSOCIATE EDITOR Halfway across the world, one local helped make a difference a silverand gold-medal-winning kind of difference. It was in the city of Racice in the Czech Republic that Mait land native and recent Win ter Park High alum Francesca Raggi found herself standing up on a podium with a silver medal wrapped around her neck. Standing alongside her team mates, Raggi showed off a big grin as the U.S. womens eight crew took home a second-place fin ish at the World Rowing Junior Championships. Thanks to their medal, and the work of all the other boys and girls crews who raced, Raggi was able to help the United States do some thing it had never done before win the overall medal count and take first place. Its really inspiring to be around them, so getting to the Czech Republic, everyone was just so focused on their goal and everyone really worked together especially in my boat, Raggi said. We really all pulled together to create such a good environment. We werent just teammates; we were all really good friends and took care of each other. The process of just getting to Worlds was a long haul in for Raggi and the other girls. To be selected, they first had to be invited to the U.S. Rowing Selection Camp in Connecticut, which only picks the top-60 rowers in the country. While there for two weeks, the athletes endured nonstop training and head-to-head competitions before being selected as the final 20 for the team.

TROY HERRING ASSOCIATE EDITOR F ootball season is here, and it has started off with a bang for schools in the area. Winter Park, Orange wood and Trinity Prep had explosive offensive nights, while Edgewater finally was able to take down longtime rival Bishop Moore in a game that will go down in the annals of the Eagles football pro gram. There were blowouts, highlightreel moments and the usual pomp and circumstance that comes with the start of football season and were here for all of it.

WINTER PARK / MAITLAND OBSERVER | FRIDAY, AUGUST 31, 2018 11 Allison Olcsvay Three years ago, was facing the same prognosis that she has watched her mother suffer 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 suffer so much; I just dont want that to happen to me, said. Medication to strengthen her bones never produced significant 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 strengthtraining regimen designed to increase her muscle mass and bone density. At her next DEXA scan to measure density, doctor noticed a big change and she was able to stop taking her medication. Success stories like 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 train-ers, knows the challenges his clients face. After 33 years in the fitness 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 B ors 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.

At least that was the case when the Wildcats (1-0) ran over Lake Nona (0-1) with the force of a Mack truck. Although the Lions defense held the Wildcats in check for the first quarter only giving up an Alec Boe 36-yard field goal a 43-yard pick-six by Wildcats CB Daniel Edwards seemed to fire the home side up to 11. Seemingly every time the packed crowd at Showalter Field could look up at the scoreboard, the Wildcats had scored another touchdown. The biggest explosion for the boys in black and orange came in the form of senior RB Tyrone Davis, whose 120 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 14 car ries made the Lions defense feel completely nonexistent. Davis alone averaged enough yards per carry (8.6) to come close to pick ing up first downs for the Cats by himself. I felt like our line came togeth er it was a little shaky in the first half, and then we had to pick it up, said Davis after Fridays game against Lake Nona. All of them came together, and we were just rolling. A big story coming into this season for the Wildcats was see ing who would replace last years starter and team co-captain Cameron LeGree. The answer: senior Gino English. Despite a passing line of 8-for20, English still picked up 141 passing yards while grabbing three touchdowns overall (two passing and one rushing). The Wildcats will face off next against another offense-driven team in Oviedo (1-0) which beat Timber Creek 48-0 last week. The game will take place Friday, Aug. 31. EAGLES TAKE THE BATTLE OF COLLEGE PARK Some games simply feel bigger than the others. In Edgewaters case, the Battle of College Park is just that. But for a rivalry to be taken seri ously, you have to show you can win games every now and then something the Eagles (1-0) have struggled to do against Bishop Moore (0-1) for almost three decades. On Friday, Aug. 24, however, the Eagles put an end to a 27-year drought as they squeaked by the Hornets in a 24-20 win. Despite a huge night from Hor nets WR Dylan Brazil who tossed a 41-yard bomb for a touch down and picked up 97 yards and two TDs on five passes it was Eagles SS/OLB DJ Hampton and senior QB RJ Harvey who stole the show. Hampton pulled off a blocked punt in the second quarter, which he promptly recovered in the end zone for the touchdown. The score would put the Eagles up for good. Meanwhile, Harvey who tossed the rock for 73 yards and a touchdown on five-for-16 passing ran circles around the Hornets defense for 162 yards and another touchdown. The Eagles hope to follow up their big win with another as they travel to Colonial (0-0) to take on the Grenadiers Friday, Aug. 31. The Hornets will attempt to get back to .500 against Lake Brant ley (1-0). SAINTS ON HIGH Last season, Trinity Prep went 8-2 behind an offense that aver aged almost 45 points per game, as they almost outscored opponents two to one. Well, this year seems to be on the same kind of offensive pace. The Saints (1-0) went on a ram page in their 42-0 blanking of Four Corners (0-1). It shouldnt be a surprise that the high-flying Saints would con tinue their offensive onslaught as the offense returned six start ers from last year including key cogs in the machine with QB Spencer Fetter and WRs Kenny Hill and Tommy Tight. Fetter alone has made up a large part of the offense during his time with the Saints. Last year, he threw for more than 2,600 yards while scor ing 31 touchdowns. If trends are to be believed, the Saints upcoming game against the high scoring Masters Acade my (1-0) on Friday, Aug. 31, could require multiple scoreboards to keep track with the scoring put up by both sides. THE RUNNIN RAMS Plenty of players around the area had highlight moments Friday night, but fewer had a game that was nothing but highlights. In Orangewood Christians 27-7 win over Cocoa Beach, junior RB Anthony Brown had a night to remember as he rushed for a whopping 203 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries. Although the offense was a bit sluggish out of the gate not scoring until the second quarter once Brown got into his groove, nothing was going to stop him. As soon as the junior found the smallest of openings, he bum rushed through and streaked past defenders like they were standing still. Credit also should be given to the Rams defense, as it stifled any kind of offense the Minutemen threw at them. It surrendered only 179 total yards and a lone touch down in fourth quarter when the game was well out of reach. Luckily for Brown and the rest of the team, the Rams will get a bit of time off as they get the early BYE this week, before taking on The Masters Academy Friday, Sep. 7. Football season is here!

I was like, I dont really know. Im not really fit for it. We tried out, and we made the team. We made JV at first, and then we moved up in the middle of our freshman year, and Ive loved it ever since. Do you plan to do cheerleading in college? Most definitely, yes. I want to go to Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, and I want to become a Rattler, which is the name of their cheer team. What do you want to study in college? Social work. I love working with kids. How do you work on cheering and getting better? I try to stay within the school, but we have outside workshops, we go train in gyms, and profes sionals come to us. We have the UCA, which is like professional cheer people who come to us in the summer, and they help us work on our skills. What do you think of being a captain and taking on that leader ship role? I feel like I was made for this spot. Its something Im good at. It comes like second nature to me. What TV show are you watch ing right now? How to Get Away with Murder. Its good. What do you eat on your sub? When I go to Publix, I put every thing on it except for onions. If you could have any super power, what would it be? To read peoples minds, I always want to know what other people are thinking. I feel like theres two sides to every person: the side they show and the side they dont show. I want to know more about the side that they dont show. If you could take a vacation or trip anywhere, where would you go? Ive always wanted to go to Hawaii, because people talk about Hawaii and how its so relaxing. I just think its beautiful. Do you have a favorite athlete? Serena Williams. Shes a good role model, and shes one of the first African American women to go as far as she has. I think shes very inspirational. TIM FREED SPORTS SPOTLIGHT Edgewater High School senior Donea Sykes is going into her nal year with the cheerleading squad and has worked her way up to captain after four years on the team. She is looking forward to an exciting year of cheering on the Eagles on Friday nights, and hopes to see the cheerleading team chase a state championship in competition season. Donea Sykes THE BASICS AGE: 17 HEIGHT: 5-foot-2 FAVORITE CHEER: Pump It Up. HOMETOWN: Orlando Following the selection process, the team made its way to Prince ton University, where it trained for one-and-a-half months. Its this constant work, teambuilding and past competition that Raggi said really helped the U.S. team flourish at this years Worlds. Last summer I raced in Trakai, Lithuania, but we got seventh, so we didnt get a medal, she said. Having that experience going into this summer really helped kind of stress the team and boat dynamics that we wanted, and everyone has the same goal to medal at worlds. Before she was medaling in international competitions, the Maitland native was making a name for herself as one of the best rowers at Winter Park High. In her freshman year at Win ter Park, Raggi impressed Crew Coach Mike Vertullo so much he dedicated time to helping her with technique and other aspects of the sport its ultimately what drove her to keep going. She was a great student-ath lete, said Vertullo, who has been the schools crew coach for 20 years. Making the varsity as a freshman I think she was the fourth girl ever was quite an accomplishment, and she has won three state titles, two national sil ver medals and (was) team captain her senior year. Along with her list of accolades as an athlete at Winter Park, Raggi also became the schools first rep resentative for the U.S. Team when she was selected last year. Although this years competi tion will be the last year she will be eligible for the Under-19 champi onships, Raggi has a lot of rowing ahead of her. She joins the Univer sity of Texas rowing team this fall. Rowing to a medal CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

A century ago, the nation of Czechoslovakia was founded following World War 1. In 1901, Czech woodcarver Albin Polasek immigrated to the United States and discovered a talent for sculpting. He quickly received national renown before retiring to Winter Park in 1950 and, in 1961, establishing the Albin Polasek Foundation and Museum. Seventeen years later, Czech citizen Jan Kalb was born and also discovered a talent for creating sculptures.

Come Sept. 2, however, itll have a new clientele a bundle of adoptable kittens. Pet Rescue by Judy, an animal adoption nonprofit, and the Enzian are partnering for the first CatVideoFest event at the Maitland movie theater to support animal adoption. And of course, some cats and kittens are coming along for the ride. Im ecstatic over this, said Judy Sarullo, owner of Pet Rescue by Judy. Its about bringing awareness to people about the wonderful cats and kittens that are in the world and to show them off. Show how cuddly and independent and smart they are. The idea is the marriage between Sarullo and Enzian mar keting manager Valerie Cisneros. After all, Cisneros is a lifelong supporter of cats and kittens alike. Its all just sort of come together, Cisneros said. The communitys really excited, and certainly Im very excited. Its two of my favorite things that have come together. The 70-minute video thats being played at the Enzian is a compilation of home videos and internet clips of cats and kittens doing what they do best being as cute as they can be. Ten percent of the events ticket sales will benefit Pet Rescue by Judy. Cats unfortunately multiply more that puppies do, go through kitten season, but it doesnt stop, Sarullo said. Theres so many thousands of kitties put to sleep. It happens constantly: You find them on streets, others are abandoned, sometimes the mother goes out and gets picked up or run over. Theres so many things that happen; theres so many babies out there that need to be fed and raised and loved and found a new home. The nonprofit, located in Sanford, takes care of about 40 cats at a time, in addition to others socializing at foster homes. Sarullo estimates there are nearly 1,500 cats under Pet Rescues care each year. The show is sold out, but the kitties themselves are available for adoption during the premiere in the lobby. Ultimately, Sarullo stresses owners to spray and neuter their pets. (Weve) got to educate people to spay and neuter, spay and neuter, she said.

Should the artwork created by women artists be labeled as political? Tuition for this class is $70.

The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens is pleased to announce its fall exhibit, The Soul of Grati: Jan Kalb. The exhibit will be held in partnership with the Embassy of the Czech Republic to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Czechoslovakia. Contemporary Prague artist Jan Kalb is known internationally for his innovative 3-D grati. Born in 1978 in Czechoslovakia at a time when grati was a form of protest in Eastern Europe, he made a name for himself in the 1990s as the country was opening itself up to Western inuences. Kalb later become known across Europe as Cakes and took his art to New York in 2000, making an impression while painting train cars alongside other well-known grati artists. Since 2007 Kalb has ex perimented with abstractions on canvas, earning him solo exhibitions in Argentina, Germany, Paris, London, New York and Miami. The exhibit will include sculptures, 3-D canvases, select new works, and an original installation. For more information, call (407) 647-6294.

THIS SUMMERS PASSPORT TO LEARNING, EXPLORATION, AND FUN! 282167 On Aug. 28, Kalbs work made its way to Winter Park as the Polaseks Musems featured exhibit The Soul of Graffiti.SPIRIT OF DARKNESSAll of this history and timing is no coincidence for museum curator Rachel Frisby finding a way to capture the shifting Czechoslovakian art culture throughout the years has been on her mind. Frisby, with the help a friend at the Czech embassy in Washing ton, D.C., put together a list of prominent and up-and-coming Czech artists that could be show cased at the Polasek. She ultimately decided on Kalb earlier this year because of his journey from a young graffiti artist to his international 3-D sculpture work. It was his background, his personal evolution as an artist, Frisby said. To me, it mirrors the country of Czechoslovakia and, through its independence, its new shape and cultural direction. I think Jans artistic career has also mirrored that. The 40-year-old artist from eastern Prague discovered his love of graffiti art when he was just 15 and quickly became known across Europe for his work under the pseudonym Cakes when he wasnt getting caught by the police, that is. Graffiti was something unknown, Kalb said. I was amazed by all the colors and the spirit of darkness, it was great for a kid (at 15). Sometimes you go out, paint somewhere and are chased. Sometimes you escape; sometime youre caught. You go to prison for one night but no serious troubles. Eventually, Kalb transitioned from spraying 2-D graffiti art on the streets he said there was only so much he wanted to do with graffiti to attending a fine-arts academy in Prague and creating 3-D abstract sculptures in a studio. It was that style of work that has been put on display in museums across the globe. In Kalbs eyes, the 3-D pieces that can be created and installed onto walls tell the same story as graffiti but in a more accepted way. CONTRASTAlthough Albin Polasek, the museums founder, created anatomically-realistic depictions of men and woman, Kalb instead opts to create eccentric, twisted shapes made of resin or plywood. He flew to Winter Park from Prague to install his work, consisting of both 3-D sculptures and abstract paintings, which will be on display until Dec. 2. Its the contrast of those Polasek and Kalb designs, standing sideby-side in the front of the museum and in the sculpture garden, that Kalb enjoys. To me, I wanted to create a dialogue between my modern sculptures and his traditional ones, Kalb said. When I look to my piece and I see his, I think its pretty weird and interesting. His work is very classical and easy to understand. Because of him, Im here, so I have a great respect.

WINTER PARK / MAITLAND OBSERVER | FRIDAY, AUGUST 31, 2018 17 283339 When theONE-IN-CHARGEbecomes theNEXT-IN-LINE rfntbf When the NEXT-IN-LINEbecomes the ONE-IN-CHARGE 272082 TROY HERRINGASSOCIATE EDITORAs Michael Moffett peered out of the small window of his commer cial flight, he was struck by the surreal nature of his situation. He was no longer in the friendly confines of the Sunshine State. Instead, he was looking down at a tarmac lined with F-4 Phantoms that sat alongside military buildings that were barricaded with sandbags. It was 1969, and Moffett and those fellow Marines aboard his flight were landing in the Vietnamese coastal city of Da Nang four years after American forces became physically involved in the ongoing Vietnam War. The first thing I remember (was) when they cracked the door opened and you stepped outside, the heat hit you I think it was 110 when I got there, Moffett said. And there was a smell in the air, and the smell I dont know what it was a combination of it was just very distinct. To me it was like, Welcome to Vietnam. For the next year, Moffett servedas a communications/radio spe cialist trekking through the Vietnamese jungles and the Ho Chih Minh Trail. Fast forward 49 years, and that time in Vietnam though relatively brief has continued to play an important role throughout Moffetts life, including in his art. Moffett, alongside Central Florida artists and veterans William Gura and Jim Hosner, will be a part of the Maitland Art Centers upcoming exhibit, Soldiers Home: Veterans Art in Central Florida. The exhibit which takes its name from a short story by Ernest Hemingway about the return of a World War I veteran who suffers severely from the atrocities he saw during the war was inspired by the arrival of the centennial anniversary of the United States entry into World War I. It also celebrates Maitland Art Center founder and WWI veteran J. Andre Smith. Its 2018, and we still feel and hear that the veterans are not always taken care of, and that their stories are not heard well, said Rangsook Yoon, director of experiences and curator at the center. They feel the disjunction between their wartime experiences and civilian life afterwards. The difficulties faced by those who have fought wars is var ies from individual to individual. In the case of Moffett, the war in Vietnam led him to an observation that fits the mold Yoon was looking to explore in the exhibit: Veterans, whether broken or not upon their arrival, come home to people that dont understand them or their situation. While Moffett utilizes a slew of media including sculpture, painting and drawing its his sculpture work that really hits the hardest. One of his most notable pieces, titled Portable War Memorial, is a critical observation of societys knack for placing veterans on proverbial pedestals while simultaneously casting them aside and ignoring their needs. The sculpture features two separate pieces: The first is that of a man whose torso is attached to a tank that sits atop a red base. His left eye is covered by an eyepatch, and a half-burned cigarette sits between his tense lips. The anguish in his facial expression reads of great stress, as the handgun pressed to his ear creates a moment of overwhelming tension. Placed in front of the memorial is the viewer an old veteran who sits in a wheelchair thanks to age and a missing right leg. Moffetts work focuses more on brutally honest depictions of the realities of many veterans the suicide epidemics, the depression and the alienation from society, Yoon said. We want to emphasize these issues that Mike Moffett creates, which without the contextual information can be lost as something too brutally honest to actually look at. Creating work that provokes strong emotions and reactions is exactly what Moffett sets out to do so folks looking, or reacting by not looking, is exactly what he wants from viewers. The whole point of the work is to poke the tiger, so to speak, because you want to have some kind of statement in your work, Moffett said.JIM HOSNERLike Moffett, Jim Hosner served his country during the Vietnam War, but unlike Moffett, Hosner went against his will. Despite his pacifism, Hosner was drafted into service a moment that had a significant impact on him. Although he didnt realize it, Hosner suffered PTSD for years before having a breakdown in 1987. Eventually, he found help in the form of therapy and art. His paintings that he has been making on canvas are kind of records of his recurring nightmares and dreams, Yoon said. So it takes him a long time to complete a work, but they tend to have very personal dimensions. He tends to create them in surrealistic sequential images.WILLIAM GURAServing in an intelligence role dur ing the conflicts in the Middle East, William Gura is a veteran who has made a name for himself thanks in part to his illustration and knot work. Gura, much like Hosner, also has suffered from PTSD, which has been helped thank in part to his artwork. His love of illustration bloomed after retiring following his 20 years of military service, and his ability to create beautiful knots derives from his time in the armed forces. He is a very knot expert, so we are going to show some of his knot works, which are very delicate, Yoon said. The fact that he served in the Marines also shows that there was a connection between his knot work and his career as a veteran.
