2 WINTER PARK / MAITLAND OBSERVER | FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 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.

WINTER PARK / MAITLAND OBSERVER | FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 3 HARRY SAYER BLACK TIE REPORTER For the Winter Park locals look ing for a seafood fix, youre in luck East Hampton Bait & Tackle is coming to Winter Park next month. The new seafood eatery will take over the old TR Fire Grill location at 1035 N. Orlando Ave. Greg Pranzo, creator of the Cinco Tacos & Tequila restaurant on Orlando Avenue, is behind the new project. We figured Winter Park is the Beverly Hills of Orlando (with Cinco Tacos & Tequila), Pranzo said. We said Hey, maybe Win ter Park is the East Hampton of Orlando too. I spent years growing up in the Hamptons, and we felt there was a void of a gath ering place thats for seafood and sushi. The owner said the new res taurant will take inspiration from East Quogue, West Hamp ton, Hampton Bays, Southamp ton, Bridgehampton, Watermill, Montauk and more. Some of the seafood served at Bait & Tackle will consist of both East Coast and West Coast oysters, in-sea son stone crabs, three different types of lobster rolls and desserts. Pranzo is particularly excited for customers to try the beef Wel lington, which has to be ordered two days in advance, and the baked Alaska, an ice cream and cake dessert. Bait & Tackle will have a full bar with brunch seven days a week, as well as a patio with fountains and other water features. The bar also will include select wines picked from Long Island and the Hamp tons. The owner also is planning daily specials such as all-youcan-eat crab legs one day a week and a wine mixer event on the outdoor patio every Monday. Pranzo said he chose the TF Fire Grill location because of the two hotels planned next to the prop erty, as well as the nearby foun tains. Michael Quatrini, a venture capitalist partnering with Pranzo on the project, said the interior will have a nautical aesthetic with a darker, mahogany-toned wooden than the current pine color. Rather than the current seating layout, which Quatrini likens to an eatery such as Chilis, the new space will have a more upscale look, complete with a blown-out indoor/outdoor bar for a good view of the fountains. Were going to bring in a richer color treatment thats going to have it look a little more elegant than the light pinks and mus tard colors that (the location) has now, he said. As was the case with Cinco Tacos & Tequila, Bait & Tackle will have an extended, soft open ing throughout October before a grand opening in November. A lot of folks here at Cinco know we like a soft opening, because we really want to get it right for the community, Qua trini said. TIM FREED ASSOCIATE EDITOR The more the merrier thats the feeling within Maitland Cub Scouts Pack 31. Local elementary school girls now have a chance to take part in Cub Scouts, and a local pack is seeing the influx of new recruits. Three girls already have signed up this year for Maitland Cub Scouts Pack 31, and about four or five more girls have come to information meetings. Pack 31 has about 50 scouts and is chartered through Mait land Presbyterian Church, with most of the children recruited attending Dommerich Elemen tary School. Girls now being included as official scouts is exciting for everyone involved, Cubmaster Kelly Strykul said. Its a great thing to have both boys and girls, especially because Cub Scouts is really family-oriented, she said. Its always been something you did as a family. Weve really always had girls, they were usually just sisters that kind of came along. So now they get to actually earn the advancement and badges and things along with their brothers. I love the idea of having both, just because Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts are so incredibly differ ent in the way theyre set up and the advancement of how they can earn different badges and achievements, Strykul said. I think it opens up a whole new realm to both boys and girls. Strykul said the pack learned about the change back in Janu ary, with recruiting now taking place. Now girls have a chance to participate in the many activities Cub Scouts offers and learn life skills that go far beyond camp ing. Certainly, there are lots of girls out there who want to learn the things that Cub Scouts has in place, she said. The scout law entails that Cub Scouts are hon est and trustworthy and help ful and kind. It gives kids an opportunity to do leadership. We do a lot of service projects we do the Scouting for Food, but then we also make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that are donated. Weve also made up snacks and bags for the Mait land Police Department and Fire Department. It gives kids lots of opportunities to see how they relate to their community and the people that are in their com munity that are helping and giv ing to others. Its a change thats been a long time coming after parents have asked about girls being allowed, Strykul said. Girls will be allowed in Boy Scouts of America next year, as well. The change came from peo ple asking, Can girls join? she said. Especially people who earn Eagle Scout that has such a big recognition to it. The Girl Scout equivalent I think is like a Gold Award or something, and it just doesnt have the same weight. Strykul said the change may take some time to set in, but soon, more families will realize girls now are included and more girls will sign up. Ill look at news articles and stuff like that and Ive seen in other places in the United States where scouting has more kids in it, and theres lots of girls that are already involved and have their own dens, she said. I think its just going to take a while to catch on here. The Cub Scouts is something that any child no matter their gender can enjoy and learn from, Strykul said. Nothing in Cub Scouts is just for boys, Strykul said. Nothing weve done is gender-specific. It is something fun for all kids and all families to participate in. Maitland Cub Scout pack welcomes rst girls Three girls have signed up for Pack 31, and leaders expect more soon. Nothing in Cub Scouts is just for boys. Nothing weve done is gender-specic. It is something fun for all kids and all families to participate in. Kelly Strykul Winter Park reels in new seafood restaurant East Hampton Bait & Tackle is casting for a soft opening in October. A crane toppled into a house on Lower Park Road in Baldwin Park and sliced through its roof Tuesday, Sept. 4. It sounded like a big boom, Baldwin Park resident Nina Brodict said. I jumped up immediately and looked from the back window and we could see it. Orlando Fire Department ocials said no one was injured from the crash and that a second crane will be able to remove the rst. CRANE CATASTROPHE Harry Sayer
4 WINTER PARK / MAITLAND OBSERVER | FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 TIM FREED ASSOCIATE EDITOR T heres something dif ferent about Winter Park High School senior Rileigh Hanson these days. Shes coming out to football games on Friday nights. Shes jog ging periodically, instead of feeling exhausted after just walking from her bedroom to the kitchen. Shes enjoying life. After a four-month period of treatment for her stage two Hodg kins lymphoma, Rileigh has her cancer on the run and shes get ting closer to remission. A scan on March 7 revealed Rileigh was NED, or no evidence of disease. Patients must be declared NED for a length of time before they are considered in remission, but its a crucial first step that has given the Hanson family a sense of hope and jubilation. As long as my scans stay clean, Im in remission, said Rileigh, who vividly remembers receiving that wonderful phone call that she was NED. There were a lot of tears shed for sure its the best news you could have hoped for, Rileigh said. We were in Flippers (Piz zeria), and we were like the only other table in there, and I guess the ladies on the other side of the res taurant heard us screaming. They paid for our lunch. Wednesday, Aug. 8, marked yet another milestone for Rileigh: Her three-month scan revealed she was still NED. The cancer appears to be leaving her body, Rileighs mother, Shanna, said. Rileigh hasnt had a chemo treatment since Feb. 19. She now can taste the food she eats and thick, tight curls of hair are grow ing on her head. With her type of cancer, its a fast growing cancer, Shanna, said. If it was going to come back, it most likely would have come back at her three-month scan. The 17-year-olds fight against cancer started when she was get ting a sports physical in Novem ber 2017 to play water polo. Doc tors noticed some enlarged lymph nodes in her neck, but before then, she had no signs of typical cancer. She went to her general prac titioner, who ran some tests on Rileigh that all came back nega tive. A CT scan revealed she had an abnormality though, and on Black Friday, Rileigh was diag nosed with stage two Hodgkins lymphoma. The treatment began in Decem ber and ran through March at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Chil dren. (Rileigh) is my hero, Shanna said. Not only did she keep a positive attitude, but she also helped other children with can cer on the fourth floor at Arnold Palmer. She played with the little kids, talked with them, colored and made their lives seem as nor mal as possible. Rileighs white blood cell count is still low, and she has to take antibiotics on the weekends along with checkups every month and a scan every three months but the Winter Park High senior feels stronger than ever. Now its kind of like things are back to normal, so its even better, Rileigh said. Thats almost bet ter than being celebrated being treated like a normal person. We have some making up to do for some lost time, Shanna said. Schoolwork trying to choose a college, being a normal highschooler. Today, Rileigh has plenty to look forward to just like any other high-school senior. She gets to paint her own parking space. She gets to go to prom. She gets to walk at graduation. Im excited, its senior year, Rileigh said. I couldnt go to football games or sports events or pep rallies (because of the health risk with a low immune system). I can do that this year, and it makes it even better, because its my senior year. Its the year school spirit is at an all-time high. Theres also a lingering spirit of gratitude to everyone thats been with her on her journey so far, Rileigh said. Every card. Every hospital visit. Every person whos stopped her in the hallway at school to ask how shes doing. It all means so much, she said. Hundreds of wrist bands bear ing #RileighStrong have spread throughout the Winter Park High community. Im really quite thankful, Rileigh said. It shows you who your real friends are at the same time. It also makes us all a lot closer. Rileigh kept a positive atti tude and we were surrounded by people that loved and cared for us and wanted the best for us, Shanna said. Theres a hashtag in the cancer world that says, No one fights alone. Its true. A return to normal Tim Freed Shanna and Rileigh Hanson said they are thankful for every bit of community support they have received. If we are to build a better world, we must remember that the guiding principle is this a policy of freedom for the individual is the only truly progressive policy.

And one of the biggest issues, said Rob Doolittle assistant vice president for media and communications at CSX is the arrival of SunRail in 2014. CSX trains have been oper ating during designated freight windows when passenger trains are not present, including during the overnight hours, Doolittle told the Observer during a 2017 interview. While CSX works to minimize the impact of our oper ations on local communities, we must also prioritize the safety of people in those communities and our employees. Since then, the city of Winter Park entered an agreement with the Florida Department of Trans portation to establish quiet zones at all 16 crossings in the city. According to the FDOT hand book, a quiet zone is defined as being a section of a rail line at least a half-mile in length that contains one or more public crossings at which locomotive horns are not routinely sounded. The plan calls for upgraded safe ty measures to be put into place so train engineers will no longer have to blow their horns unless there is a dangerous situation. The safety precautions include the addition of new lights, signs, barriers and concrete islands basically anything that can help prevent folks from going around the gate. The plans for these new install ments have been pushed back a couple of times, but as of now, the hope is they will be done sooner, rather than later. There also are multiple spots being worked on at this very moment. According to an update through the city of Winter Park, FDOT is scheduled to have all Winter Park crossings be quiet-zone compli ant by August 2019. Work already has started on the Pennsylvania, Webster and Canton avenues crossings, and improvements will continue to be made along the corridor until all crossings meet quiet-zone requirements. The entire corridor which includes all crossings in Winter Park, Maitland and Orlando is expected to be completed by the end of 2019. The project to develop these quiet zones will cost up to $2.3 million 29% of which will be funded by the city, while FDOT will take on the 71% majority share. QUIET ZONE REQUIREMENTS All public crossings must have gates, lights, constant warning time devices, and power-out indicators. The inventory information for each crossing in the quiet zone must be accurate and complete prior to establishing the zone. Crossing within quiet zone must comply with Manual on Uniform Trac Control Devices. PRIVATE CROSSING REQUIREMENTS Any private crossing that allows access to the public or provides access to active in dustrial and commercial private crossings must have a diagnos tic eld review and are subject to the recommendations of the diagnostic eld review team. At a minimum, each ap proach to every private high way-rail grade crossing within a quiet zone shall be marked by a crossbuck, a stop sign and an advance-warning sign that advises the motorist that train horns are not sounded at the crossing (compliant with MUTCD standards). PEDESTRIAN CROSSING REQUIREMENTS Pedestrian crossings in a qui et zone must have a diagnostic eld review and are subject to the recommendations of the diagnostic eld review team. At a minimum, each ap proach to every pedestrian grade crossing within a quiet zone shall be marked by a crossbuck, a stop sign and an advance-warning sign that advises the pedestrian that train horns are not sounded at the crossing (compliant with MUTCD standards).

6 WINTER PARK / MAITLAND OBSERVER | FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 282660 HARRY SAYER BLACK TIE REPORTER Some people figure a basic highschool education give or take a college degree or two is enough for a lifetime. The instructors at Rollins College, however, dis agree. They believe learning should continue well into the twi light years. Rollins is hosting its STARS classes personal enrichment courses aimed at men and women at age 50 and older. (Our students) are looking for a connection to Rollins College, said Peggy Smith-Clayman, executive assistant and coordi nator for the STARS program. They want to keep themselves challenged. Theyre looking for all types of classes and thats what were trying to do find what it is theyre looking for and get it to them. Although much of the liberal arts colleges curriculum provides more standard classes and sub jects, the STARS classes cater to a wider array of interests. Courses go over theoretical and practical subjects, including basket weav ing, political discussions, artist retrospectives, card games, yoga, understanding digital interfaces and more. There are about 20 to 25 classes each month, according to Smith-Clayman, that typi cally meet once a week for about an hour. Its a holistic education, said Erik Kenyon, director of student and faculty engagement at Rol lins Hamilton Holt School. Its not just knowledge for knowl edges sake. This is what lifes about we should always be learning. The school has offered STARS classes since 2013 but recent ly brought Kenyon aboard to increase engagement. Something both Smith-Clayman and Ken yon have noticed is their older students harbor both a fear of becoming isolated in their old age and a need for community. To that end, many of the classes are small and group-discussion based Smith-Clayman said several classes have return students who have made lifelong friends. With a background in ethics, Kenyon is particularly excited to host a class where STARS stu dents will observe and work with young children learning ancient ethics and philosophy at the col leges child development center. Theres no restriction on how old people interested in the classes have to be. Smith-Clay man said although most of the students are between 60 and 70, a few are a younger. Registration for the classes is currently open. Theres a lot of people out there who just want some sub stance, Kenyon said. They want some connection beyond some thing thats just a potluck.

Plans for The Alfond Inn expansion were set to go before the Winter Park Planning and Zoning Board in October, while the Lawrence Center set to replace the existing Rollins Col lege building at the corner of Lyman and Knowles avenues was planned to go before the board Tuesday, Sept. 11. Leaders from Rollins pulled away from the public hearings to reevaluate potential options, according to an official state ment. With so many exciting and mission-critical projects taking shape at Rollins, we are putting a temporary hold on our Law rence Center and Alfond Inn expansions in order to explore and evaluate some cost-saving and project-sharing opportuni ties that will benefit the College and the community, the state ment read. In addition to seeking more cost options, parking was also a factor, according to the letter of withdrawal sent by Rollins Col lege. As you know, Rollins College desires to expand The Alfond Inn at Rollins College, build a new facility to house the Cornell Fine Arts Museum and relocate the Crummer Graduate School of Business, the letter read. The projects (are) being referred to as the Innovation Triangle. In reviewing these projects, in combination with those planned for the campus south of Fair banks Avenue, the college wants to ensure that adequate parking is being provided in location(s) most convenient to our guests, students and faculty. ... We would like to withdraw these hearing requests in order that we may investigate other potential parking locations to better meet the needs of the college and the residents of Winter Park. According to the public notice about the Lawrence Center, the city was considering a partner ship with Rollins to bring the three-level parking garage up to five or six levels. That would have given the structure an additional 120 to 180 parking spaces and help the city allevi ate a perceived parking deficit in the Park Avenue area. The expansion to The Alfond Inn would have added even more space and amenities to a busi ness that generates more than $17 million in top-line revenues, welcomes more than 22,000 guests every year and runs an annualized occupancy of 90%. Building off the original devel opers agreement for the hotel when it was approved by the city, phase two was set include 70 hotel rooms; a 7,000-squarefoot spa/health club; a 4,000-square-foot meeting space/gallery; 323 square feet of retail space; and 152 parking spaces (21 surface/131 garage).

Page 13. TROY HERRING ASSOCIATE EDITOR T he start of the high-school golf season is always a tough one. Between the oppressive heat and seemingly constant rain, just getting in matches can be dif ficult. But despite all of the early can cellations of which there have been a few it doesnt seem to have slowed down the Winter Park boys and girls golf teams, as both have gotten off to strong starts so far this season. In the case of girls head coach Joe DiFrancesco, things are going well in his first year as the coach of the girls golf team. Its been pretty good the girls really have embraced having a new coach this year, which is a big plus, DiFrancesco said. When someone new comes in regardless of who they are it takes some time, but the seniors have really been great with me. His Cats started off with a strong showing in a lightning shortened, five-hole tri-match showdown with Boone and Colo nial. The Wildcats finished first with a combined team score of 89. Star sophomore Emily McLatchey led with her impressive score of 19. The weather has continued to wreak havoc on the season for the girls team. The match at Lake Howell was outright cancelled, and the matchup with Lake High land Prep was called for inclement weather after just two holes. One would think all the distur bances could throw a team off, but thats not been the case with this years squad. Instead, the Wildcats followed up the delays with a close 167-168 win over Timber Creek. Once again, it was McLatchey who led the way this time shooting one-over-par 37 while senior Kenzie Potter shot a 39. Shes (McLatchey) our No. 1, and she has consistently done well she was plus-one our last match (against Timber Creek) and the course was pretty tough that day with mud spots, DiFrancesco said. She wasnt happy with it, but she was the medalist that day. She has really done a great job. DiFrancesco also has gotten a lot of help both on and off the course from his three seniors. Through the early part of the sea Driven to win The Winter Park High boys and girls golf teams are o to a hot start and hope to make a strong run through the season.

TROY HERRING ASSOCIATE EDITOR In sports much like in life how you handle adversity says a lot about your character. In the case of the Winter Park volleyball team, its safe to say that these girls have the truest of grit. After the successes of last sea son during which the Wildcats won more than 20 games and claimed both metro and district titles its needless to say there was a lot of momentum going into this season. Then, adversity struck early. Senior setter and leader Autumn Little-Phillips was hos pitalized with a non-disclosed health issue, while sophomore outside hitter Mariana OlivaresCely has been out of town and due to return later this week. Weve had some kids step up and (do) a great job to kind of fill the role there itll be a challenge tomorrow (Sept. 5) against Uni versity, I think, without her, said head coach Stephanie Gibson. Although the loss of two key players such has Little-Phillips and Olivares-Cely would have rattled other teams, the Wildcats have put things together early and started the season 3-1 (1-0 in dis trict). And a large part of the strong start comes from the players stepping up when called upon by Gibson. A leader in her own right, Emily Jordan a four-year starter for the Wildcats has helped shape this years team and has been a leader on and off the court. In the Wildcats 3-1 (25-8, 25-14, 21-25, 25-17) win over East River, Jordan alone racked up 16 kills. She fol lowed that game with eight kills against Lake Highland Prep and a whopping 26 kills in a five-set nail biting win against Apopka. She carried the load for us in that match with 26 kills, Gibson said. And we were really trying to figure it out, because we just found out we werent going to have Mariana in that match, so to kind of fill that role we put one lineup in and didnt like that, and ended up changing it. Her total of 70 kills and .327 hitting currently leads the team and helped bolster the Wildcats. But this team isnt a one-wom an show. This years experienced squad packed with nine upper classmen is full of big hitters and players who can do it all. In junior setter Hannah Mus ante, Gibson has a utility player who can do just about anything on the court. Her 12 aces so far are a team high, while her 52 assists have helped set up the offense. She also has picked up 21 digs. Another ace on the team is Oli vares-Cely, who despite miss ing game time has been incred ibly productive with 10 aces, 18 kills and a whopping 54 digs. Olivares-Celys collection of digs is second best to junior libe ro Ava DiPaolo who currently leads the team with 67. These core girls, and oth ers such as junior middle hitter Evelyn Byington (28 kills, .300 hitter, 12 blocks), senior outside hitter Hannah Green (eight aces, 26 kills, 38 digs) and sophomore setter Alice Montebugnoli (75 assists, 31 digs, nine aces) have set the tone early for the Wildcats. Its also helped that this team, Gibson said, has come together for each other. The girls their work ethic and team chemistry have been fantastic, Gibson said. And these kids are not shy about hard work, and they understand what that means. Although the Wildcats still have some kinks to work out such as finding consistency in the serve and pass game, which Gib son thinks could be a real strength for her team the coaching staff at Winter Park believes this year could be another good one for their girls. Fixing those little things and running with whats been work ing will be keys to the Wildcats making their way through a dis trict filled with talented teams. Our district is tough any one of four teams could win it, and there is an argument for Uni versity whose gotten better every year, Gibson said. Its a ben efit, because youre playing good teams theres not really going to be a night off. WP volleyball o to hot start The Winter Park volleyball team hopes last years successes will propel greatness this year.

WINTER PARK / MAITLAND OBSERVER | FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 13 son Potter, Nicole Rave-Torres and Rylee McCully have helped lead by example, and its something the underclassmen have really caught on to, DiFrancesco said. The biggest thing Im seeing is their consistency not only during our matches but also dur ing practices, DiFrancesco said. They really have come out with a lot of focus and they really are taking it very seriously, (while) also having a good attitude about it. BOYS GOLF KEEPS ROLLING After finishing in third place at last seasons state tourney, the Wildcats boys golf team is keep ing up the pace with multiple wins through its first three matches. In Winter Parks first match of the season at the Winter Park Invi tational at Rio Pinar, the Wildcats came up just short and finished in second place. Junior Brandon Bon cores 72 led the Cats. But despite the strong finish, losing out to Circle Christian for the second-consecutive year left a bad taste in the mouth of the team, which may have actually been a good thing, head coach Rob Robison said. That kind of motivated them, Robison said. Then we played out at the Wolverine Invitational out at Golden Bear Club at Keenes Pointe, and the guys just put it together. Along with shooting a program best 279 as a team to take first place, sophomore Michael Mays had one of the best shooting days in the history of the Winter Park program finishing an incred ible seven-under-par to finish the tournament with a 65. Ive never seen that from any one in our program, Robison said. He was just in the zone and played great. As far as the rest of the team goes, senior Drew Lanier provides the senior leadership, while soph omore Andrew Clark provides the consistency and analytics the team needs. Boncore who last year suffered a minor wrist injury that threw off his game has provided the comeback inspiration for his teammates, and Stephen Hickham plays the role of the ever-grinding spark plug. Our goal every year from the first day in August that we can get together until the district tourna ment is to get better every single day, Robison said. How long have you been playing volleyball, and what got you started? Ive been playing since third grade. My cousin played, and I wanted to be like her. What has been your favorite thing about playing at Orange wood? The family atmosphere. We are just a big family, and we love each other. Youve been playing volleyball for a while now why keep playing? I dont know, its just like pas sion for it I just love it. I get bruises, and I just show them off. Is there one piece of advice from Coach Diane Langmo that sticks out to you? Just to stay positive and know that tomorrow is a new day. You can always make everything up, and its not that big of a deal. Just get out of your head. Have you always played at the libero position? No, I actu ally played outside, and then last year. Coach Langmo moved me to libero. and it just kind of stuck. Are you a cat or dog person? Dog, defi nitely. I just dont like cats, because theyre mean. I have five dogs at home two labs and three Dachshunds. My whole family are dog people. What is your favorite color? Green. My Jeep outside is neon green. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Australia, because of all the ani mals Im an animal lover. If you had one last meal, what would it be? 4 Rivers brisket I just love that place. What are your plans after you graduate from Orangewood? Im prob ably going to be going to UCF, but not for volleyball I dont think Im going to play in college. I want to be an orthope dic surgeon. I wanted to be a vet, but then my sister became a vet. So then I was like, Ill help people. TROY HERRING SPORTS SPOTLIGHT A senior and team leader at the libero position, Hallie Moore is hoping to make her fourth and nal year at Orangewood one to remember, as she and the Rams look to continue a strong start to the new season.

ARTS + CULTUREFRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 ORANGEOBSERVER.COM Sometimes, being a hero means making a sacrice TIM FREEDASSOCIATE EDITORpoignant blend of art and history has arrived at the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida. The museum is hosting a temporary exhibit titled, Heroes of Warsaw. Its a collection of illustrations depicting the courage and bravery of Irena Sendler and Janusz Korczak in the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II. The center hopes to share the true stories of Sendler and Korczak, who both put themselves in harms way for the sake of children during the Holocaust. The exhibits opening comes just a few months after the 75th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Our center was founded with the mission of using the history and lessons of the Holocaust to create a world where every one feels safe, respected and included, Executive Director Pam Kancher said. That cannot be achieved without the courage and bravery of people like Irena Sendler and Janusz Korczak, who are highlighted in the Heroes of Warsaw exhibit. These stories remind us of our responsibility to stand up and speak out against injustices whenever and wherever we see it. A Polish catholic social worker, Sendler worked to rescue 2,500 children from the Warsaw Ghetto, smuggling them out in various ways and even reuniting many of them with their families after World War II. Korczak, a jewish physician who ran an orphanage in the Warsaw Ghetto, made the ultimate sacrifice when he chose to stand by his children at the orphanage when The Heroes of Warsaw exhibit honors historical gures Irena Sendler and Janusz Korczak for looking after children in the Warsaw Ghetto.ASEE HEROES PAGE 20 Artist Bill Farnsworth captured the spirit of true heroes in the Warsaw Ghetto.Courtesy photo
20 WINTER PARK / MAITLAND OBSERVER | FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 they were sent to the Treblinka extermination camp. Even when Korczak was given the chance to walk away, he chose to stay with the children in Treblinka, where he ultimately lost his life. I just want to highlight the diversity of heroes, both then and now, through the lens of people like Irena Sendler and Janusz Kor czak, Program Manager Terrance Hunter said. The illustrations in the exhibit were created by artist Bill Farnsworth and featured in the chil drens books, A Hero and the Holocaust: The Story of Janusz Korczak and His Children and Irena Sendler and the Children of the Warsaw Ghetto. This is the first time that these illustrations will be presented simultaneously only half of this collection has been on display before. My approach was to be brutally honest yet with a window of hope, Farnsworth said about the artwork. The heroes like Korczak and Sendler showed the world that during tragic times a few had the courage to rise above and do whats right. The mission behind displaying the illustrations is simple: helping visitors understand what it means to be a true hero. In the exhibit you look at two individuals who were heroes in different ways, Hunter said. Heroism isnt always recognized immediately, if ever. Theres something to be said about doing the right thing even when no ones looking. Sometimes, being a hero means making a sacrifice. 284475 HARRY SAYERBLACK TIE REPORTERThe Baroque Chamber Orchestra will regale an audience with its Baroque & Beyond per formance Sunday, Sept. 9. The production will feature a mix of classic baroque music pieces, as well as contemporary samples to reflect a modern audience. Its all the creation of president of the Performing Arts of Maitland Jeff Flowers and his wife, Performing Arts of Maitland Executive Director June Flow ers. The duo has been working on Baroque & Beyond for about six weeks. Were trying to introduce our local audiences to baroque music but also throwing in some pieces that are more modern, Jeff Flow ers said. We try to make it fun. We want to bring some classical, classy works to the audience as well some fun stuff too. The show will open with the Antonio Viv aldis Concerto in A Minor performed both by renowned musicians Alvaro Gomez and Routa Kroumovich Gomez. Jeff Flowers said the piece is seldom performed because of its difficulty. Luckily, he said the married pair is more than up to the challenge. Alvaro serves as conductor for the Baroque Chamber Orchestra as well as the Maitland Symphony Orchestra. I was looking to get this Baroque Chamber Orchestra started, so I called Alvaro (and asked) who hed recommend to be the conductor, Jeff Flowers said. And he says, How about me? I never would have dreamed we could have attracted his talent to our group, but its been a terrific success ever since. (Alvaro and Routa) have played this piece many times on tour before; this is in their reper toire. The orchestras 18 members, many of whom also perform in the Maitland Symphony Orchestra, consist of four violas, three cellos, 10 violins, a harpsichord and a bassist. Jeff Flowers believes one highlight with the 3-year-old groups small size is the players ability to hear his or her individual instrument, particularly the string section, during practice and perfor mances. As for the Beyond half of the night, both Jeff and June Flowers felt it fitting to have a suite of music pieces from the Mamma Mia musical. A selection of music from Ragtime Dance by Scott Joplin will be in the mix, as well. The Baroque & Beyond per formance marks the first of 11 events, performed by the Baroque Chamber Orchestra, the Maitland Symphony Orchestra and the Maitland Stage Band, that will comprise the Performing Arts of Maitlands new season. The next symphony concert will be Oct. 18 at the Maitland Presbyterian Church.IF YOU GOHEROES OF WARSAW WHEN: Through Friday, Dec. 28 WHERE: Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida, 851 N.
