If you took a walk down Win ter Parks Park Avenue in the past couple weeks you might not have noticed them, but they no ticed you. At least eight black, spheri cally capped surveillance cam eras have been installed at inter sections throughout downtown Winter Park by the Winter Park Police Department, Lt. Tom Pear son says, to help monitor crime and collect intelligence in the area. The cameras were paid for through the citys Homeland Se curity funds, with the police de partment fronting $35,000 itself for connectivity. They went live, recording 24/7, in mid-March. Pearson declined to identify how many cameras were installed and where. The Voice located eight of them. Their main purpose is to Oviedo will once again showcase its unique ag ricultural heritage with the 18th annual Citrus & Celery Cook-Off. The contest is part of the Taste of Oviedo, held at the Oviedo Mall on Saturday, April 14. Amateur chefs will enter their best recipes in either the citrus or celery division with the only rule being that the dish must somehow feature their chosen produce item. Points are scored for originality, presentation and of course, taste.

The duo talked possibilities rang slated to be developed into a com munity center, to the new down town, which has yet to be built.

We see it as an opportu nity for Winter Park residents to ent where we cant always have But with the thoughts of in creasingly being watched, wheth er it be from these surveillance cameras, red-light cameras, or those mounted on the dashboards of police cars, some residents have the feeling that Big Brother gov ernment has arrived, while oth ers see it as just catching up with technological times. Though other local cities, such as Maitland, Oviedo and Winter Springs, do not currently utilize surveillance cameras, police cap tains from each department say if and when the cities further de velop their downtown cores, they would consider installing them. Winter Springs Chief of Police Kevin Brunelle said his depart ment is currently in the infant stages of looking into grants to install surveillance cameras in the city. Technology-wise, it is the way of the future for us to be able to His department already uses dashboard cameras in 90 percent of its police cars, with surveillance cameras being the next step. Everybody speaks up about constitutional rights, but you dont have the right to not be vid eotaped while breaking the law, he said. You might say were playing Big Brother on the crimi nals but not on our law-abiding citizens. Winter Park Mayor Ken Brad ley says the cameras are the real ity of the technological world we live in today. Cameras, like lights, make places safer I have no reason to believe anyones rights have been threatened or violated, he said. But on the defense, John Ding felder, senior staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, which has consistently opposed the use of cameras to monitor public places, says this sort of surveillance is just the tip of the iceberg. If people get too comfort able with giving up their rights to privacy on the sidewalk, then the next step is the rights to pri vacy elsewhere, he said. Little by little, thats how we lose our rights. Many residents and business owners say even though theyve been walking and running busi ness under the cameras surveil lance for weeks, they had no idea they were there, or that they were being recorded. Lt. Pearson said there has been no public announcement regarding the cameras or their locations. He says there are two sides to the debate on whether cameras should be publicized or not. If known to be there, he said, the cameras could possibly deter criminal activity, but also limit the amount of intelligence the depart ment can gain from the footage, which is continuously recorded, but not live monitored, except during large-scale public events. When the legality of surveil lance cameras has been brought to court, it has been ruled that the public has no expectation of pri vacy on the public street and side walk, so the silent surveillance recordings are legal. Park Avenue shopper Jennifer Green says she doesnt view the cameras as an invasion of priva cy. If people dont have anything to hide than it doesnt matter, she said. I think it only ensures that if something does happen that it can be investigated. So this is our commitment to you.

Basing his presentation on a grab bag of monuments across the country, he showed memorials ranging in scale and price from a series of small plaques, to a foun tain monument spanning the area They also had an example right down the road in Winter Springs. That veterans memorial fea turing rising columns, plaques, sculptures and a central fountain opened in November 2008, cost ing less than $250,000. The more complex, the great er the cost, White said. If youre interested in a water feature, that can drive up the cost. If you de cide to include all veteran names from the Oviedo community that can get very complex. Walters said getting all of the citys veterans names might not even be possible, since records dating back to before WWII only listed veterans by county. That would bring up an even more dif after the memorial is built then you realize you're missing some one, White said. As hard as we're working at it we know we're going to overlook some, Walters said. A timeline for design and construction was not discussed, but White said that public input would be solicited as the project moves forward. Councilman Steve Henken urged the planners to take their time on the design, due to the im portance of the monument. Its something that'll be ever lasting, Henken said. I think we should build something that when you see it, you say wow. Orlando Health Physician Specialists is excited to announce the arrival of family medicine physician Deborah Lauridsen, MD.

Other winners will receive gift cards or gift baskets from local vendors. People of all ages will com pete for top honors, including the youngest contestant, Logan Gay, who will turn 8 on the day of the cook-off.

Hes a great kid and a great big brother, I couldnt ask for a better son. Besides hanging out with his dad in the kitchen, Logan also He got the idea to enter the cook-off from his mom, Dama ris Claude, whose Lemon Guava Cheesecake entry from a few years ago is still a family favor ite. Its like heaven in your mouth, Gay said. We make it every year now for Christmas. With a little help from his mom, Logan has a recipe all picked out for this year, and with have more than just a birthday to celebrate come April 14. A history of citrus and celery in Oviedo Small towns love their claims to fame. In Florida its no exception. Plant City has its strawberries, Zellwood has its sweet corn, and for Oviedo, it is citrus and celery. A quirky combination to be sure, but together this duo has seen the city through good times and bad. While not as romantic sound Plant City, these staple crops of citrus and celery have helped to develop Oviedo into the city it is today. In fact, both crops were grown cially named. According to a history out lined by The Oviedo Preserva tion Project, the humble celery stalk was introduced to Florida in 1869, and citrus groves began to appear in the Oviedo area shortly thereafter, around 1870. postmaster, bestowed the grow ing little hamlet with the name Oviedo in 1879, after a city in Spain by the same name. Oviedo was a successful little citrus town like others in Central Florida, producing a steady an nual harvest until the freeze of 1895, which destroyed most of the states crop as the fruit hung ripe on the trees. Ever resilient, Oviedo farmers quickly turned their loss into gain by the next year planting celery in the rich swampland around Lake Jesup. It wasnt easy work though. Growing celery was labor in tensive, requiring complex irri gation and soil preparation. The fragile plants had to be covered and uncovered throughout their development to protect them from frost and too much sun light. Sometimes their work stunk, quite literally. The stench of rotten eggs would permeate the air on a warm day rising in the heat from the rich mucky soil that made the area so fertile. Growers quickly mastered the conditions and the complex farming methods and by the late 1920s, companies like A. Duda & Sons were shipping out celery by the trainload, helping to produce almost a third of the nations sup ply of the crunchy vegetable. By WWII, the celery industry was thriving and so was Oviedo, producing enough to send over seas to support the war effort. Citrus had also seen a resurgence, and both industries helped deliv er the city into the modern era.

Dust seems to be everywhere. Caution is the watchword, from burning refuse to water usage. Local rodeo kicks up excitement Speaking of dust this Saturday, April 14, is a great opportunity to bring your kids out to the Yarborough Ranch for the Second Annual Seminole County Cattle men Junior Ranch Rodeo. It's a fantastic afternoon where kids can watch other kids and teens ride horses and pen, ride, sort and decorate steers in competi tion. It's an intimate venue where they can see all the action up close. Cowpokes of all ages will be there with boots, hats, chaps, jeans and even some spurs. I attended last year and was so im pressed by the skill, stamina and discipline of these youth. Even in our rural area, many kids have never seen a rodeo competition and no one understands better than our friends at Yarborough Ranch what these activities can starts at 2 p.m. and admission is easy just bring a canned food donation to support a worthy and longtime charity, The Russell Home. Take the County Farm Tour Speaking of ranches, consider signing up for the Seminole County Farm Tour scheduled for Friday, April 27. For only $5 you can visit several farms and nurseries around Seminole County, which represent a sam pling of our county's $465 million agricultural industry. The tour is self-guided and includes lunch at the Yarborough Ranch. There is limited seating so make your reservations soon. The tour is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Contact 407-665-5554 for more in formation and check out the 2012 gov/extensionservices/pdf National Child Abuse Prevention Awareness On a more serious note, we must turn our attention to a key initiative in April the month dedicated on a national scale to the education, awareness and prevention of child abuse. Abuse comes in so many forms and from so many places. As our culture places laser-like focus on video games, reality shows, personal technology and celebrity worship, it is stunning to me that we have so lost our way when it comes to our kids. As we've allowed technology to educate, interact and guide our kids they have been ignored at the least, and drawn into unwise company without suspecting a thing. No one wants to see children suffer from physical, mental or emo tional abuse, even more so when it comes from family members and members in the community who are supposed to protect them. Why not start in your own county and community by look ing for opportunities to assist Seminole County Child Abuse Prevention Task Force or key ad vocacy groups like KidsHouse of Seminole or the Seminole County Guardian ad Litem program? Even mentoring a child to read at your local school can help a child feel like somebody really cares. Thanks to good samaritans Sunday evening a red vehicle apparently lost control and was upside down in a ditch on State Road 46 just east of County Road 415. At least 20 cars were lined up on both sides of the road attempting to help when we rescue vehicles were on the scene yet, but it was great to see all the good Samaritans taking the time to help.

Page 8 April 13 April 26, 2012 Seminole Voice INTERESTS Valeria Brown has a long list of accomplishments valedicto rian of her high school, bachelors degree from UF, two masters de grees and now Seminole Countys Teacher of the Year for 2013. But its her sense of humor and enthusiasm that really make an impression on her students and colleagues. Even the boring stuff is in teresting in Mrs. Browns class. fun, said Michael Johnson, one of Browns sixth-grade language arts students at Jackson Heights Middle School in Oviedo. The joy is shared by her col leagues, who love her upbeat per sonality. Heights, we nicknamed her Miss Sunshine, Principal Winston Bailey said. Shes always smil ing, never tired, never sad, al ways happy. Bailey said the most power ful thing about Browns teaching ability is her power to motivate students of all backgrounds. When all her students say how wonderful she is, and how much they enjoy coming to her class, then you know youve got something special, he said. One way she motivates her stu dents is by offering them a voice in their own education. Through out the year, she gives the class the opportunity to choose which book they will read, or sometimes even which form an assignment will take. A favorite lesson from earlier in the school year a mock trial, complete with lawyers and a ver dict was so popular that stu dents asked to do it again, Brown said. Quirky lesson plans are a sort of trademark of Browns classes. Drawing inspiration from cur rent events, movies, even video games, she keeps her students en gaged and invested in what they are learning, she said. More than just language arts, she teaches us life lessons, said sixth-grader Melanie Clark. Some even come from Ma rio Bros. games, referring to Browns recent lesson taken from the popular Nintendo character. Brown was inspired while playing video games with her family over the winter break. I was thinking back to my childhood when my mom made me complete a Mario Bros. game before she would buy me a new one. The lesson is about persever ance and achieving goals, Brown said. Her second-period class will likely never forget the lesson on achieving goals they learned when Brown was named teacher of the year right before their eyes on March 28. They were the lucky ones who got to share in the celebration when Seminole County School Superintendent Dr. Bill Vogel made the announcement, reviv ing the tradition of surprising the winner in the classroom. Along with Vogel, many mem bers the School Board were pres ent as well as Principal Bailey and Browns husband, Paul, a crosscountry track coach at the Univer sity of Central Florida. Paul got the call from Bailey nouncement and managed to keep the surprise from this wife of six years until the big day, de spite the temptation to leak the news. It was really hard keeping the secret, but she really deserves it, Paul said. Bailey echoed his sentiments. Every word of praise comes from my heart, Bailey said. I cant think of a better recipient for this award everybody wants their kids to be in Mrs. Browns class.

Page 9 April 13 April 26, 2012 Seminole Voice Family Calendar Two little girls sit at a table eating dinner, their plates heaped with green stuff and it coli, green edamame, green dressing, all over brown rice. There arent any of the squeals of protest you might imagine hearing from a 9and 6-year old, just the silence that comes when people are really enjoying a meal. This Winter Park family lives on vegetables. Anika, 9, and Ksenia Goel, 6, have been mostly vegan all of their lives. They and their dad do Gretchen Goel, hasnt eaten any animal prod ucts in six years. I choose it because I choose to make con scious decisions, and I want to live in a planet that is clean, where animals are not being tor tured and treated inhumanely and where peo ple are healthy, and I think we can achieve all these goals, Goel said. Growing interest There isnt exact research on how many vegetarians there are in the U.S., but most polls and research place the number at about 3 percent of the population. That number hasnt changed much, so vegetarian and vegan diets dont seem to be a growing trend in the U.S., but its clear that more people are interested in the idea. Theres the Meatless Monday so cial media campaign, which is exactly what it sounds like, soy milk and veggie burgers can be found on almost any grocery store shelf, and even fast food restaurants have jumped on board. Winter Park and the Orlando area are hosts to many vegetarian and vegan restaurants and bakeries, including Caf 118, Loving Hut and Dandelion Communitea Caf. Theres been a huge change in offerings of Ethos Vegan Kitchen in Orlando, said. Shockley wouldnt tell anyone when he went vegan in 2002 because people were rearing to argue about the lifestyle choice. It sounded crazy to some people then, but now his restaurant, which he opened in 2007 after ular place that serves a variety of customers 70 percent of whom he says arent vegetar ian or vegan. People are starting to open up to it, he said. Healthy choice A lot of that may be the positive research backing the choice; science is on the side of a plant-based diet. A vegetarian diet has been proven to lower the risks of cancer, heart dis ease and diabetes, lower blood pressure, and even reverse some of those diseases. Amy Sindler, a registered dietician and li censed nutritionist who works at the Orlando VA Medical Center, couldnt name one draw back to the diet. And for those who claim peo ple were meant to eat meat, she disagrees. They werent, she said. We can meet our nutritional needs through a plant-based diet. meaning they consciously choose to eat less meat for health reasons. A poll by market re Vegetarian Resource Group, found that 33 per cent of the country is eating vegetarian meals a enjoy meatless meals more than half the time. Both Goel and Shockley said they just felt better after going vegan. You feel lighter, not only physically but mentally as well, Shockley said. Goel always had high blood pressure as a teen, and when she went vegetarian for the points. Ive felt a huge difference ever since, she said. Successful through education But its not a cure-all, said Kaye-Ann Taylor, registered dietician and licensed nutritionist with a practice in Orlando offering nutritional there has to be balance and education. There in for meats with carbohydrates. Some dont get the vitamins and minerals they need. For kids it can be even trickier because theyre de veloping. If I had a parent who was very cognizant of nutritional needs and what theyre doing, I would not have a problem, Taylor said. Be cause its a tough area to monitor and to en sure that children are meeting their nutritional needs, I dont know that I would go and en courage it. in plant-based nutrition from Cornell Univer sity and uses that knowledge every day when she makes dinner for her family. Every meal is planned with nutritional value in mind. Its a conscious diet, she said. And thats what Taylor said can really mat ter, even if someone just thinks about adding a little more green into their lives. When people are taking a look at their nu tritional habits and lifestyle habits, that alone to make improvements, she said.

Numer ous career choices have been in the construction trades, starting as a carpenters helper during college summer breaks, working in the whole sale building supply indus try, and even as an electrician at the Mouse House. During these 30-plus years, inter spersed with creating my homestead and gardens, con cern for job safety has evolved from non-existent to almost position as an instructor of the noble art of growing your own food, imparting safe working habits has become a mission and duty. What could possibly be dangerous safely ensconced in the tranquility of my garden? The soft, deeply turned soil, perfectly loosened to allow the roots easy penetration, was more than likely broken up with sharp steel implements. Whether us ing a sharpened spade-shaped shovel or the rapidly rotating tines on a gas-powered rototiller, our soft toes are no match when directing as much force as possible at targeted root clumps. bare feet, are out of the question when considering garden attire. At a bare minimum, closed-toe sneakers should be worn, with steel toe combat boot probably recommended by the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) guidelines. The various denizens of the natural world all have their bag of tricks when feel ing threatened. I am amazed at the tenderness of thin-skinned guests to my great out-of-doors when facing down the poison arsenal of mere mosquito bites, welts, not to mention bee stings or scorpion zolts. Long-sleeve shirts and canvas jeans preclude the majority of itches. Chemical repellants, if used at all, should and then applied sparingly to outer clothes and exposed skin. Timing is everything, with most biting bugs looking to snack on us right around sunset. The most inconvenient safety chore during a cardio session in the garden on a hot, humid afternoon would be a dust mask. Dry soil will emit particulate of untold composition. Tossing granular fertilizer warrants an awareness of wind direction and pity for all those downstream from the dust cloud. Diatoma ceous earth, an insect control, is jagged microscopic silica skeletal remains of diatom algae, akin to ground-up glass. My primary procrastinator when planning to muck out the chicken coop is the airborne manure powder. Gardening is the oldest and most popular active hobby in the history of our species.

Page 12 April 13 April 26, 2012 Seminole Voice Doctors told Stephanie Arthur her twin boys only had a 20 percent chance of survival. I looked at my husband, and said, A 20 percent chance is bet ter than a zero percent chance, Arthur said. Arthurs twins were born pre mature, at 23 weeks, four months too soon, and have been defying the odds ever since with the sup port of the March of Dimes. We were told Jackson (her son) would be paralyzed from the waist down, and basically told to turn off the machine for Quincy (her other twin son), she said. It was a pretty traumatic and emo tional time for us. Arthurs twins are among the 633 babies born preterm every week in Florida, and like so many other mothers she never thought shed be tackling the obstacles that can accompany babies born prematurely. When many women get pregnant you think youre going to have a natural and full preg nancy, she said. You never, ever think youre going to have to en counter what we encountered. Arthur said that when she started researching the causes of premature births March of Dimes immediately came up. After reading hundreds of stories (on the March of Dimes ized I wasnt the only woman go ing through this, but at the same time I realized there was a pur pose there for me, she said. And once I saw the impact they (March of Dimes) made on the communi ty, and how I could get involved, thats really what drove me to re ally make a difference. The March of Dimes is continu ing to impact lives with their big gest fundraising event, March for Babies, at Lake Eola on Saturday, will help raise money and aware ness for the March of Dimes, and support families in need. March of Dimes Central Flor ida Divisions Executive Director Elisabeth Stuart said the March for Babies is a family event. This years goal is for the event to raise $670,000. We have a lot of family teams that are parents that have had babies born premature or with a birth defect, and they know how they have received from all of the advances in medicine that have been achieved by the March of Dimes, Stuart said. The infant mortality rate is 6.9 per 1,000 live births in Orange County, and one in seven babies (14.8 percent of live births) are born preterm. The March of Dimes spends 75 percent of the money raised in March for Babies on research and programs that promote the health of babies. By walking and rais ing money to help the March of Dimes, it supports all-important research offering preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with birth defects, educates women on things they can do to increase their chances of having a healthy baby, provides comfort and information to families with a baby in intensive care and pushes for newborn screening and health insurance for all pregnant women and children. March of Dimes board member and volunteer Roger Jeffrey has been involved with the March of Dimes for 25 years, and said he believes its a great way to help others. You cant walk away from that event without feeling good about people, because everyones there for the same purpose to do something in some way shape, or form to save babies, Jeffrey said. Its very uplifting and a joy to be involved. Arthur and her family are now also experiencing the joy of being involved in the March of Dimes by becoming this years ambassador family, as they continue to tackle the obstacles that come their way; while reaching out to share their story and walking for a cause near and dear to their hearts. We decided to share our story and give parents hope, Arthur said.

Page 13 April 13 April 26, 2012 Seminole Voice If you are a new mother or recently pregnant, chances are you have felt the wisp of air that follows the pendulum of mod ern medicine as it swings by yet again. The topic this time: elective deliveries before 39 weeks of ges tation. Prior to taking a hard look at outcomes, the consensus in the medical community was that 37 weeks was considered term and deliveries after that point are deemed safe. So off we went and phone calls funneled into labor and deliver wards to schedule elective deliveries. Her husband is getting de ployed. Texas to help with the sibling. Shes miserable. We are head In 1990, 10 percent of deliver ies were electively performed before 39 weeks. Until recently, they accounted for nearly 25 percent of all deliveries. With the emphasis of evidence-based medicine, the pendulum is now swinging the other way and we, as a community, are learning that there is true merit to the saying, patience is a virtue. So what is the big deal? It has become apparent that babies born between 37 and 39 weeks are more likely to have respiratory problems and simply put, they have more growing to do. The brain and liver continue to develop between 39 and 40 weeks. Perhaps most evident is the increased trouble they have with feeding because the coordi nation required for sucking has not matured. On the maternal front, there is a higher rate of Csections in this patient population as well. This mode of delivery inherently carries increased risks including infection, bleeding and post-delivery pain. And if this isnt reason enough to shy away from early elective cant economic impact as a result of this practice. C-sections are more expensive to perform and lead to longer hospitalizations. Infants that are not fully mature can require intensive neonatal care and that is costly. A study last year estimated that reducing early-term births to 1.7 percent could save close to $1 billion an nually. I personally have found that after appropriate counsel ing, patients are supportive of whatever delivery plan is best for their baby. Not only is an elective induction before 39 weeks against my practices policy, but it is also against hospital policy. Increased awareness of the dangers associ ated with preterm births is on the rise thanks to initiatives such as the March of Dimes Prematurity Campaign. Hospitals in multiple states, including Florida, have stopped elective deliveries inductions and cesarean sections before 39 weeks. This information wouldnt be complete without offering a few care professionals do not hesitate to recommend delivery before 39 weeks if there is a medical reason to proceed. These indications could include, but are not limited to: a mother sick with preeclamp sia, uncontrolled diabetes and concerns for baby's health, such as small size. Patient care in these situations is very individual ized, and the risks of continuing the pregnancy can outweigh the This subject leads me to reminiscence about my inter view days before residency. A wise physician sat in front of me, looked at my resume, and then pulled his reading glasses down on his nose to look me in the eyes. He then asked, Can you tell me three attributes that make a good obstetrician? As I paused and shifted uncomfortably in my chair, much to my relief, he proceeded, A good obstetrician is a team player, decisive and perhaps most importantly is patient. We are the only docs that wait 9 months for something to happen. Dont rush things in its Stone. Coming from a physician who has long felt the breeze from the ever-swinging pendulum of medicine, I take great heed in his guidance. And from our experi ences, weve learned. It is time to be patient and let Mother Nature do the planning. Dr. Pamela Snook is a board-certied obstetrician and gynecologist who completed her residency at Shands at the University of Florida. She has been a practicing physician for more than seven years and has garnered a special interest in high-risk obstetrics, infertility and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. She practices at Contemporary Women's Care, 2111 Glenwood Drive, Ste. 208 in Winter Park. Call 407-478-OBGY(6249) or visit www.myobgynorlando.com More and more births are being scheduled a little early for non-medical reasons. Experts are learning that this can cause problems for both mom and baby. If possible, the March of Dimes recommends for you to stay pregnant for at least 39 weeks. If your pregnancy is healthy, wait for labor to begin on its own. We know you cant wait to meet your baby face to face. But getting to at least 39 weeks gives your baby the time he needs to grow. There are lots of important things happening to your baby in the last few weeks of pregnancy. For example, your baby's brain and lungs are still growing. You might not have a choice about when to have your baby. If there are problems with your pregnancy or your baby's health, you may need to have your baby earlier. But if you have a choice and you're planning to schedule your baby's birth, wait until at least 39 weeks. The March of Dimes Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait education campaign and obstetric provider groups advise that you wait until at least 39 weeks to induce labor or have a cesarean birth (also called a c-section) if it is needed. The campaign was developed in response to the growing number of inductions and c-sections prior to 39 weeks for non-medical reasons.Why babies need timeBabies born too early may have more health problems at birth and later in life than babies born full term. Here's why your baby needs 39 weeks: time they need to develop. birth. a healthy weight have an easier time staying warm than babies born too small. eat after he's born. Babies born early sometimes can't do these things.Why scheduling an early birth can be a problem Experts are learning that scheduling an early birth for nonmedical reasons can cause problems for mom and baby. For example: hard to know just when you got pregnant. Even with an ultrasound, your due date can be off by as much as 2 weeks. If you schedule to induce labor or schedule a c-section and your date is off by a week or two, your baby may be born too early. medicine your doctor or certied nurse-midwife gives you may not start your labor. When this happens, you may need to have a c-section. by c-section may have more breathing and other medical problems than babies born by vaginal birth. (Most babies are born by vaginal birth. The mother's uterus contracts to help push the baby out through the vagina, also called the birth canal.) Once you have a c-section, you may be more likely in future pregnancies to have a c-section. The more c-sections you have, the more problems you and your baby may have, including problems with the placenta. you to recover from a c-section than from a vaginal birth. You can expect to spend 2 to 4 days in the hospital after a c-section. Then you'll need 4 to 6 weeks after you go home to fully recover. You also could have complications from to stay in touch with your health care provider even after you go home. The March of Dimes is the leading nonprot organization for pregnancy and baby health.

Page 14 April 13 April 26, 2012 Seminole Voice ATHLET I CS The Knights may have lost a big one to UAB, but they came back with two re venge-match thrillers that ended in a walkoff single to take the series on April 8. JoMarcos Woods would collect in the game, and it would prove the decisive one. With the game tied at 7, the Knights came to bat in the bottom of the ninth inning hoping to They had a lot on the line, with a No. 14 NCAA ranking and a 27-7, 7-2 record to defend. They also had a bit of a grudge to satisfy after a wild six-error series opener left them smarting with an 11-4 loss on their hands. That game had been especially traumatic for UCF pitchers, who gave up only one earned run of the 11 that crossed the plate. For Brian Adkins, who fell to 2-1 on the season with that April 6 loss, the game was a nightmare. In three and two thirds in nings pitched he would strike out four bat ters, but he watched in horror as a slew of ing the plate in the fourth inning, none of which were attributed to him. But those memories were erased by Woods single that drove in the winning run to end the third game of the series at home. After hosting Florida A&M and Bet hune Cookman Tuesday and Wednesday at press time, the Knights will hit the road for Southern Miss for a three-game series before returning against Florida Atlantic on April 17. A massive string of blowouts propelled Winter Springs High School to six wins in a row to enter the week, as the Bears bats It started as the calendar turned to April, with the Bears (20-1-1, 6-0) baseball team facing Lyman (10-12-2, 3-8-1) and battering them with a 12-2 win. Then on April 4 they hosted Hagerty High School (16-4-1, 7-3-1) to avenge a 2-1 loss just two weeks prior. They did it in a big way, blasting the Huskies with a 10-0 shutout win. Will Owens batted 1.000 for the game, adding three RBI for the Bears. A day later, they traveled to Evans (310, 0-5) and launched into what would be their biggest rout of the season, winning 23-2. Their bats calmed down a bit on April 9 when they hosted Ocoee (12-10, 2-6) and won by a mere 7-2 margin. Theyll host Trinity Christian (9-10, 2-0) at 7 p.m. Monday, April 16, before regular season next week. Lions roar Oviedo High School (12-10-1, 3-2) bounced back from a two-game losing streak to win two in a row against Semi nole and Lake Howell on April 4-5. Tyler Hayden and Ryan ONeill both brought out the big bats for the Lions against the Seminoles, blasting a homer each. Theyll travel to face perennial pow erhouse Lake Brantley (13-11, 7-6) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, then hit the road for crosstown rival Hagerty at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, before stopping by Lake Mary (9-13, 4-7) to close out the regular season. Huskies rebound Hagerty has had a string of ups and downs in April, entering the month on a six-game win streak before falling to Deland 2-1 on April 3 and then Winter Springs by a 10-0 blowout on April 4. They got their groove back with a 4-2 win over district rival Lake Brantley to vault them up in the district standings. After a string of games at press time theyll hit the road for University, batter up at 4:30 p.m. Monday, April 16. Then theyll close out the season with a show down against Oviedo at home, starting 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 18.

TALK T O SANDI > Recently, the organization I work with held an employment seminar. We visited topics dealing with job loss, resumes, how employment has changed since 2001 (think digital) and interviewing. I love listening to the presenters at these events because they have such great information for job seekers. The of HR Concepts, talked about putting to gether a sheet of PAR statements to help prepare for interviews. I love this! PAR statements are Problem, Action, Result. This is the perfect answer for be havioral interview questions. By writing down a list of problems you have faced, the actions you took, and the results, you are in a storytelling mode. We are not talking about petty prob lems; We are talking about ways you helped the company to grow, saved the company money, or made things better for you and your co-workers. For example, instead of saying I landed a $3 million account, you could say, When I took over the position, our networking connections, and diligent fol low up with potential customers, I was able to land a new account. This new account contributed to over $3 million in annual sales. Thats a true story for me. On a side note, I asked a very profes sionally dressed lady at the event to tell me about herself and she was stumped. Know the answer! Everyone asks it! Do you have any stories of bad inter viewers you would like to share? Please contact me at the information below. Interview like youre worth it Strip-searching the Fourth Amendment If youre given a speeding ticket and forget to pay it for long enough, you may now be subject to a strip search. Thats a rather extreme example, but one thats now legally allowed thanks to a split 5-4 U.S. Supreme Court decision made Monday that allows search anyone arrested for any reason. Considering that America has the largest population of incarcerated residents in the world, thats an awful lot of humiliation about to happen. About 13 million people are jailed each year in the United States, wrote justice Anthony Kennedy, who drafted the majority opinion on the ruling, which split directly down political lines with the court. Dont think youll be among them? Not so fast. The ruling comes from a seeming ly unlikely case. In 2005 Albert W. Florence was arrested and strip-searched for not pay that: He had paid it. Due to a clerical error by a New Jersey been processed. He found out the hard way what a clerical error can cost. Florence seemed an manager at a Philadelphia car dealership, he was riding in his BMW, driven by his wife, when she was pulled over for speeding. When police noticed he had an outstand ing warrant for not paying a he was arrested, even though he had a court document in his possession proving hed paid it. Hed kept it, he told the New York Times, precisely to prevent this type of mix up. Standing alongside the highway, with proof that he should be free to go, he was arrested in front of his wife and 4-year-old son anyway. When he arrived at jail, he was strip-searched. When he was moved to another jail in another county, he was stripsearched again. It was humiliating, Flor ence told the New York Times. It made me feel like less of a man. He was in jail for more nally set free when the courts discovered the clerical error. his Fourth Amendment right against unlawful search was violated. Despite the obvious in competence displayed in the arrest and treatment of a noncriminal in this case, Kennedy wrote that the courts are in no position to second-guess the judgments of correctional They are some of the very few in a position to second guess the judgment of corrections case. They simply failed to do so. Citing some of the more dangerous examples on hand, Kennedy noted that prior bomber Timothy McVeigh and a 9/11 conspirator. The implication being that since we have examples of arrestees committing worse crimes than those they were arrested for, anyone who is arrested for any reason even non-crim inal reasons is immediately suspected of being in the act of committing more crimes. So why not strip search every body whos put in handcuffs? Dissenting judge Stephen G. Breyer wrote about his own examples: a nun who was strip-searched after being ar rested at an anti-war protest, a driver strip searched after driving with a noisy muf searched after riding a bicycle without an audible bell. In states with some stricter laws, someone could conceiv ably be strip searched after feeding the homeless, for violating a leash law or for not using a turn signal. Florence thought police went too far in searching his naked body for drugs and weapons after he was wrongly arrested for a civil infraction he hadnt even committed. According to the Supreme Court, simply falsely arresting him wasnt far enough.

If you took a walk down Win ter Parks Park Avenue in the past couple weeks you might not have noticed them, but they no ticed you. At least eight black, spherically capped surveillance cam eras have been installed at inter sections throughout downtown Winter Park by the Winter Park Police Department, Lt. Tom Pear son says, to help monitor crime and collect intelligence in the area. The cameras were paid for through the citys Homeland Security funds, with the police department fronting $35,000 itself for connectivity. They went live, recording 24/7, in mid-March.

We see it as an opportu nity for Winter Park residents to ent where we cant always have But with the thoughts of increasingly being watched, whether it be from these surveillance cameras, red-light cameras, or those mounted on the dashboards of police cars, some residents have the feeling that Big Brother government has arrived, while others see it as just catching up with technological times. Though other local cities, such as Maitland, Oviedo and Winter Springs, do not currently utilize surveillance cameras, police cap tains from each department say if and when the cities further de velop their downtown cores, they would consider installing them. Winter Springs Chief of Police Kevin Brunelle said his department is currently in the infant stages of looking into grants to install surveillance cameras in the city. Technology-wise, it is the way of the future for us to be able to His department already uses dashboard cameras in 90 percent of its police cars, with surveillance cameras being the next step. Everybody speaks up about constitutional rights, but you dont have the right to not be vid eotaped while breaking the law, he said. You might say were playing Big Brother on the criminals but not on our law-abiding citizens. Winter Park Mayor Ken Bradley says the cameras are the real ity of the technological world we live in today. Cameras, like lights, make places safer I have no reason to believe anyones rights have been threatened or violated, he said. But on the defense, John Dingfelder, senior staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, which has consistently opposed the use of cameras to monitor public places, says this sort of surveillance is just the tip of the iceberg. If people get too comfort able with giving up their rights to privacy on the sidewalk, then the next step is the rights to pri vacy elsewhere, he said. Little by little, thats how we lose our rights. Many residents and business owners say even though theyve been walking and running business under the cameras surveil lance for weeks, they had no idea they were there, or that they were being recorded. Lt. Pearson said there has been no public announcement regarding the cameras or their locations. He says there are two sides to the debate on whether cameras should be publicized or not. If known to be there, he said, the cameras could possibly deter criminal activity, but also limit the amount of intelligence the depart ment can gain from the footage, which is continuously recorded, but not live monitored, except during large-scale public events. When the legality of surveil lance cameras has been brought to court, it has been ruled that the public has no expectation of pri vacy on the public street and side walk, so the silent surveillance recordings are legal. Park Avenue shopper Jennifer Green says she doesnt view the cameras as an invasion of priva cy. If people dont have anything to hide than it doesnt matter, she said. I think it only ensures that if something does happen that it can be investigated. So this is our commitment to you.

Basing his presentation on a grab bag of monuments across the country, he showed memorials ranging in scale and price from a series of small plaques, to a foun tain monument spanning the area They also had an example right down the road in Winter Springs. That veterans memorial featuring rising columns, plaques, sculptures and a central fountain opened in November 2008, costing less than $250,000. The more complex, the great er the cost, White said. If youre interested in a water feature, that can drive up the cost. If you de cide to include all veteran names from the Oviedo community that can get very complex. Walters said getting all of the citys veterans names might not even be possible, since records dating back to before WWII only listed veterans by county. That would bring up an even more difafter the memorial is built then you realize you're missing some one, White said. As hard as we're working at it we know we're going to overlook some, Walters said. A timeline for design and construction was not discussed, but White said that public input would be solicited as the project moves forward. Councilman Steve Henken urged the planners to take their time on the design, due to the im portance of the monument. Its something that'll be ever lasting, Henken said. I think we should build something that when you see it, you say wow. Orlando Health Physician Specialists is excited to announce the arrival of family medicine physician Deborah Lauridsen, MD.

In Florida its no exception. Plant City has its strawberries, Zellwood has its sweet corn, and for Oviedo, it is citrus and celery. A quirky combination to be sure, but together this duo has seen the city through good times and bad. While not as romantic soundPlant City, these staple crops of citrus and celery have helped to develop Oviedo into the city it is today. In fact, both crops were grown cially named. According to a history out lined by The Oviedo Preserva tion Project, the humble celery stalk was introduced to Florida in 1869, and citrus groves began to appear in the Oviedo area shortly thereafter, around 1870. postmaster, bestowed the growing little hamlet with the name Oviedo in 1879, after a city in Spain by the same name. Oviedo was a successful little citrus town like others in Central Florida, producing a steady annual harvest until the freeze of 1895, which destroyed most of the states crop as the fruit hung ripe on the trees. Ever resilient, Oviedo farmers quickly turned their loss into gain by the next year planting celery in the rich swampland around Lake Jesup. It wasnt easy work though. Growing celery was labor in tensive, requiring complex irri gation and soil preparation. The fragile plants had to be covered and uncovered throughout their development to protect them from frost and too much sun light. Sometimes their work stunk, quite literally. The stench of rotten eggs would permeate the air on a warm day rising in the heat from the rich mucky soil that made the area so fertile. Growers quickly mastered the conditions and the complex farming methods and by the late 1920s, companies like A. Duda & Sons were shipping out celery by the trainload, helping to produce almost a third of the nations sup ply of the crunchy vegetable. By WWII, the celery industry was thriving and so was Oviedo, producing enough to send over seas to support the war effort. Citrus had also seen a resurgence, and both industries helped deliv er the city into the modern era.

Dust seems to be everywhere. Caution is the watchword, from burning refuse to water usage.Local rodeo kicks up excitementSpeaking of dust this Saturday, April 14, is a great opportunity to bring your kids out to the Yarborough Ranch for the Second Annual Seminole County Cattlemen Junior Ranch Rodeo. It's a fantastic afternoon where kids can watch other kids and teens ride horses and pen, ride, sort and decorate steers in competi tion. It's an intimate venue where they can see all the action up close. Cowpokes of all ages will be there with boots, hats, chaps, jeans and even some spurs. I attended last year and was so im pressed by the skill, stamina and discipline of these youth. Even in our rural area, many kids have never seen a rodeo competition and no one understands better than our friends at Yarborough Ranch what these activities can starts at 2 p.m. and admission is easy just bring a canned food donation to support a worthy and longtime charity, The Russell Home. Take the County Farm Tour Speaking of ranches, consider signing up for the Seminole County Farm Tour scheduled for Friday, April 27. For only $5 you can visit several farms and nurseries around Seminole County, which represent a sam pling of our county's $465 million agricultural industry. The tour is self-guided and includes lunch at the Yarborough Ranch. There is limited seating so make your reservations soon. The tour is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Contact 407-665-5554 for more information and check out the 2012 gov/extensionservices/pdf National Child Abuse Prevention AwarenessOn a more serious note, we must turn our attention to a key initiative in April the month dedicated on a national scale to the education, awareness and prevention of child abuse. Abuse comes in so many forms and from so many places. As our culture places laser-like focus on video games, reality shows, personal technology and celebrity worship, it is stunning to me that we have so lost our way when it comes to our kids. As we've allowed technology to educate, interact and guide our kids they have been ignored at the least, and drawn into unwise company without suspecting a thing. No one wants to see children suffer from physical, mental or emotional abuse, even more so when it comes from family members and members in the community who are supposed to protect them. Why not start in your own county and community by looking for opportunities to assist Seminole County Child Abuse Prevention Task Force or key ad vocacy groups like KidsHouse of Seminole or the Seminole County Guardian ad Litem program? Even mentoring a child to read at your local school can help a child feel like somebody really cares.Thanks to good samaritansSunday evening a red vehicle apparently lost control and was upside down in a ditch on State Road 46 just east of County Road 415. At least 20 cars were lined up on both sides of the road attempting to help when we rescue vehicles were on the scene yet, but it was great to see all the good Samaritans taking the time to help.

But its her sense of humor and enthusiasm that really make an impression on her students and colleagues. Even the boring stuff is in teresting in Mrs. Browns class. fun, said Michael Johnson, one of Browns sixth-grade language arts students at Jackson Heights Middle School in Oviedo. The joy is shared by her col leagues, who love her upbeat per sonality. Heights, we nicknamed her Miss Sunshine, Principal Winston Bailey said. Shes always smil ing, never tired, never sad, al ways happy. Bailey said the most power ful thing about Browns teaching ability is her power to motivate students of all backgrounds. When all her students say how wonderful she is, and how much they enjoy coming to her class, then you know youve got something special, he said. One way she motivates her stu dents is by offering them a voice in their own education. Through out the year, she gives the class the opportunity to choose which book they will read, or sometimes even which form an assignment will take. A favorite lesson from earlier in the school year a mock trial, complete with lawyers and a ver dict was so popular that stu dents asked to do it again, Brown said. Quirky lesson plans are a sort of trademark of Browns classes. Drawing inspiration from cur rent events, movies, even video games, she keeps her students en gaged and invested in what they are learning, she said. More than just language arts, she teaches us life lessons, said sixth-grader Melanie Clark. Some even come from Ma rio Bros. games, referring to Browns recent lesson taken from the popular Nintendo character. Brown was inspired while playing video games with her family over the winter break. I was thinking back to my childhood when my mom made me complete a Mario Bros. game before she would buy me a new one. The lesson is about persever ance and achieving goals, Brown said. Her second-period class will likely never forget the lesson on achieving goals they learned when Brown was named teacher of the year right before their eyes on March 28. They were the lucky ones who got to share in the celebration when Seminole County School Superintendent Dr. Bill Vogel made the announcement, reviv ing the tradition of surprising the winner in the classroom. Along with Vogel, many mem bers the School Board were present as well as Principal Bailey and Browns husband, Paul, a crosscountry track coach at the Univer sity of Central Florida. Paul got the call from Bailey nouncement and managed to keep the surprise from this wife of six years until the big day, de spite the temptation to leak the news. It was really hard keeping the secret, but she really deserves it, Paul said. Bailey echoed his sentiments. Every word of praise comes from my heart, Bailey said. I cant think of a better recipient for this award everybody wants their kids to be in Mrs. Browns class.

Page 9 April 13 April 26, 2012 Seminole Voice FamilyCalendar Two little girls sit at a table eating dinner, their plates heaped with green stuff and it coli, green edamame, green dressing, all over brown rice. There arent any of the squeals of protest you might imagine hearing from a 9and 6-year old, just the silence that comes when people are really enjoying a meal. This Winter Park family lives on vegetables. Anika, 9, and Ksenia Goel, 6, have been mostly vegan all of their lives. They and their dad do Gretchen Goel, hasnt eaten any animal products in six years. I choose it because I choose to make con scious decisions, and I want to live in a planet that is clean, where animals are not being tor tured and treated inhumanely and where peo ple are healthy, and I think we can achieve all these goals, Goel said.Growing interestThere isnt exact research on how many vegetarians there are in the U.S., but most polls and research place the number at about 3 percent of the population. That number hasnt changed much, so vegetarian and vegan diets dont seem to be a growing trend in the U.S., but its clear that more people are interested in the idea. Theres the Meatless Monday so cial media campaign, which is exactly what it sounds like, soy milk and veggie burgers can be found on almost any grocery store shelf, and even fast food restaurants have jumped on board. Winter Park and the Orlando area are hosts to many vegetarian and vegan restaurants and bakeries, including Caf 118, Loving Hut and Dandelion Communitea Caf. Theres been a huge change in offerings of Ethos Vegan Kitchen in Orlando, said. Shockley wouldnt tell anyone when he went vegan in 2002 because people were rearing to argue about the lifestyle choice. It sounded crazy to some people then, but now his restaurant, which he opened in 2007 after ular place that serves a variety of customers   70 percent of whom he says arent vegetar ian or vegan. People are starting to open up to it, he said. Healthy choiceA lot of that may be the positive research backing the choice; science is on the side of a plant-based diet. A vegetarian diet has been proven to lower the risks of cancer, heart dis ease and diabetes, lower blood pressure, and even reverse some of those diseases. Amy Sindler, a registered dietician and li censed nutritionist who works at the Orlando VA Medical Center, couldnt name one draw back to the diet. And for those who claim peo ple were meant to eat meat, she disagrees. They werent, she said. We can meet our nutritional needs through a plant-based diet. meaning they consciously choose to eat less meat for health reasons. A poll by market reVegetarian Resource Group, found that 33 per cent of the country is eating vegetarian meals a enjoy meatless meals more than half the time. Both Goel and Shockley said they just felt better after going vegan. You feel lighter, not only physically but mentally as well, Shockley said. Goel always had high blood pressure as a teen, and when she went vegetarian for the points. Ive felt a huge difference ever since, she said.Successful through educationBut its not a cure-all, said Kaye-Ann Taylor, registered dietician and licensed nutritionist with a practice in Orlando offering nutritional there has to be balance and education. There in for meats with carbohydrates. Some dont get the vitamins and minerals they need. For kids it can be even trickier because theyre de veloping. If I had a parent who was very cognizant of nutritional needs and what theyre doing, I would not have a problem, Taylor said. Be cause its a tough area to monitor and to en sure that children are meeting their nutritional needs, I dont know that I would go and en courage it. in plant-based nutrition from Cornell Univer sity and uses that knowledge every day when she makes dinner for her family. Every meal is planned with nutritional value in mind. Its a conscious diet, she said. And thats what Taylor said can really matter, even if someone just thinks about adding a little more green into their lives. When people are taking a look at their nu tritional habits and lifestyle habits, that alone to make improvements, she said.

Numer ous career choices have been in the construction trades, starting as a carpenters helper during college summer breaks, working in the wholesale building supply industry, and even as an electrician at the Mouse House. During these 30-plus years, inter spersed with creating my homestead and gardens, concern for job safety has evolved from non-existent to almost position as an instructor of the noble art of growing your own food, imparting safe working habits has become a mission and duty. What could possibly be dangerous safely ensconced in the tranquility of my garden? The soft, deeply turned soil, perfectly loosened to allow the roots easy penetration, was more than likely broken up with sharp steel implements. Whether using a sharpened spade-shaped shovel or the rapidly rotating tines on a gas-powered rototiller, our soft toes are no match when directing as much force as possible at targeted root clumps. bare feet, are out of the question when considering garden attire. At a bare minimum, closed-toe sneakers should be worn, with steel toe combat boot probably recommended by the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) guidelines. The various denizens of the natural world all have their bag of tricks when feel ing threatened. I am amazed at the tenderness of thin-skinned guests to my great out-of-doors when facing down the poison arsenal of mere mosquito bites, welts, not to mention bee stings or scorpion zolts. Long-sleeve shirts and canvas jeans preclude the majority of itches. Chemical repellants, if used at all, should and then applied sparingly to outer clothes and exposed skin. Timing is everything, with most biting bugs looking to snack on us right around sunset. The most inconvenient safety chore during a cardio session in the garden on a hot, humid afternoon would be a dust mask. Dry soil will emit particulate of untold composition. Tossing granular fertilizer warrants an awareness of wind direction and pity for all those downstream from the dust cloud. Diatomaceous earth, an insect control, is jagged microscopic silica skeletal remains of diatom algae, akin to ground-up glass.

Page 12 April 13 April 26, 2012 Seminole Voice Doctors told Stephanie Arthur her twin boys only had a 20 percent chance of survival. I looked at my husband, and said, A 20 percent chance is bet ter than a zero percent chance, Arthur said. Arthurs twins were born pre mature, at 23 weeks, four months too soon, and have been defying the odds ever since with the support of the March of Dimes. We were told Jackson (her son) would be paralyzed from the waist down, and basically told to turn off the machine for Quincy (her other twin son), she said. It was a pretty traumatic and emotional time for us. Arthurs twins are among the 633 babies born preterm every week in Florida, and like so many other mothers she never thought shed be tackling the obstacles that can accompany babies born prematurely. When many women get pregnant you think youre going to have a natural and full pregnancy, she said. You never, ever think youre going to have to en counter what we encountered. Arthur said that when she started researching the causes of premature births March of Dimes immediately came up. After reading hundreds of stories (on the March of Dimes ized I wasnt the only woman go ing through this, but at the same time I realized there was a pur pose there for me, she said. And once I saw the impact they (March of Dimes) made on the communi ty, and how I could get involved, thats really what drove me to re ally make a difference. The March of Dimes is continu ing to impact lives with their big gest fundraising event, March for Babies, at Lake Eola on Saturday, will help raise money and aware ness for the March of Dimes, and support families in need. March of Dimes Central Flor ida Divisions Executive Director Elisabeth Stuart said the March for Babies is a family event. This years goal is for the event to raise $670,000. We have a lot of family teams that are parents that have had babies born premature or with a birth defect, and they know how they have received from all of the advances in medicine that have been achieved by the March of Dimes, Stuart said. The infant mortality rate is 6.9 per 1,000 live births in Orange County, and one in seven babies (14.8 percent of live births) are born preterm. The March of Dimes spends 75 percent of the money raised in March for Babies on research and programs that promote the health of babies. By walking and rais ing money to help the March of Dimes, it supports all-important research offering preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with birth defects, educates women on things they can do to increase their chances of having a healthy baby, provides comfort and information to families with a baby in intensive care and pushes for newborn screening and health insurance for all pregnant women and children. March of Dimes board member and volunteer Roger Jeffrey has been involved with the March of Dimes for 25 years, and said he believes its a great way to help others. You cant walk away from that event without feeling good about people, because everyones there for the same purpose to do something in some way shape, or form to save babies, Jeffrey said. Its very uplifting and a joy to be involved. Arthur and her family are now also experiencing the joy of being involved in the March of Dimes by becoming this years ambassador family, as they continue to tackle the obstacles that come their way; while reaching out to share their story and walking for a cause near and dear to their hearts. We decided to share our story and give parents hope, Arthur said.

Page 13 April 13 April 26, 2012 Seminole Voice If you are a new mother or recently pregnant, chances are you have felt the wisp of air that follows the pendulum of mod ern medicine as it swings by yet again. The topic this time: elective deliveries before 39 weeks of gestation. Prior to taking a hard look at outcomes, the consensus in the medical community was that 37 weeks was considered term and deliveries after that point are deemed safe. So off we went and phone calls funneled into labor and deliver wards to schedule elective deliveries. Her husband is getting deployed. Texas to help with the sibling. Shes miserable. We are headIn 1990, 10 percent of deliver ies were electively performed before 39 weeks. Until recently, they accounted for nearly 25 percent of all deliveries. With the emphasis of evidence-based medicine, the pendulum is now swinging the other way and we, as a community, are learning that there is true merit to the saying, patience is a virtue. So what is the big deal? It has become apparent that babies born between 37 and 39 weeks are more likely to have respiratory problems and simply put, they have more growing to do. The brain and liver continue to develop between 39 and 40 weeks. Perhaps most evident is the increased trouble they have with feeding because the coordination required for sucking has not matured. On the maternal front, there is a higher rate of Csections in this patient population as well. This mode of delivery inherently carries increased risks including infection, bleeding and post-delivery pain. And if this isnt reason enough to shy away from early elective cant economic impact as a result of this practice. C-sections are more expensive to perform and lead to longer hospitalizations. Infants that are not fully mature can require intensive neonatal care and that is costly. A study last year estimated that reducing early-term births to 1.7 percent could save close to $1 billion an nually. I personally have found that after appropriate counsel ing, patients are supportive of whatever delivery plan is best for their baby. Not only is an elective induction before 39 weeks against my practices policy, but it is also against hospital policy. Increased awareness of the dangers associ ated with preterm births is on the rise thanks to initiatives such as the March of Dimes Prematurity Campaign. Hospitals in multiple states, including Florida, have stopped elective deliveries inductions and cesarean sections before 39 weeks. This information wouldnt be complete without offering a few care professionals do not hesitate to recommend delivery before 39 weeks if there is a medical reason to proceed. These indications could include, but are not limited to: a mother sick with preeclampsia, uncontrolled diabetes and concerns for baby's health, such as small size. Patient care in these situations is very individualized, and the risks of continuing the pregnancy can outweigh the This subject leads me to reminiscence about my inter view days before residency. A wise physician sat in front of me, looked at my resume, and then pulled his reading glasses down on his nose to look me in the eyes. He then asked, Can you tell me three attributes that make a good obstetrician? As I paused and shifted uncomfortably in my chair, much to my relief, he proceeded, A good obstetrician is a team player, decisive and perhaps most importantly is patient. We are the only docs that wait 9 months for something to happen. Dont rush things in its Stone. Coming from a physician who has long felt the breeze from the ever-swinging pendulum of medicine, I take great heed in his guidance. And from our experiences, weve learned. It is time to be patient and let Mother Nature do the planning. Dr. Pamela Snook is a board-certied obstetrician and gynecologist who completed her residency at Shands at the University of Florida. She has been a practicing physician for more than  seven years and has garnered a special interest in high-risk obstetrics, infertility and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. She practices at Contemporary Women's Care, 2111 Glenwood Drive, Ste. 208 in Winter Park.

Experts are learning that this can cause problems for both mom and baby. If possible, the March of Dimes recommends for you to stay pregnant for at least 39 weeks. If your pregnancy is healthy, wait for labor to begin on its own. We know you cant wait to meet your baby face to face. But getting to at least 39 weeks gives your baby the time he needs to grow. There are lots of important things happening to your baby in the last few weeks of pregnancy. For example, your baby's brain and lungs are still growing. You might not have a choice about when to have your baby. If there are problems with your pregnancy or your baby's health, you may need to have your baby earlier. But if you have a choice and you're planning to schedule your baby's birth, wait until at least 39 weeks. The March of Dimes Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait education campaign and obstetric provider groups advise that you wait until at least 39 weeks to induce labor or have a cesarean birth (also called a c-section) if it is needed. The campaign was developed in response to the growing number of inductions and c-sections prior to 39 weeks for non-medical reasons.Why babies need timeBabies born too early may have more health problems at birth and later in life than babies born full term. Here's why your baby needs 39 weeks: time they need to develop. birth. a healthy weight have an easier time staying warm than babies born too small. eat after he's born. Babies born early sometimes can't do these things.Why scheduling an early birth can be a problem Experts are learning that scheduling an early birth for nonmedical reasons can cause problems for mom and baby. For example: hard to know just when you got pregnant. Even with an ultrasound, your due date can be off by as much as 2 weeks. If you schedule to induce labor or schedule a c-section and your date is off by a week or two, your baby may be born too early. medicine your doctor or certied nurse-midwife gives you may not start your labor. When this happens, you may need to have a c-section. by c-section may have more breathing and other medical problems than babies born by vaginal birth. (Most babies are born by vaginal birth. The mother's uterus contracts to help push the baby out through the vagina, also called the birth canal.) Once you have a c-section, you may be more likely in future pregnancies to have a c-section. The more c-sections you have, the more problems you and your baby may have, including problems with the placenta. you to recover from a c-section than from a vaginal birth. You can expect to spend 2 to 4 days in the hospital after a c-section. Then you'll need 4 to 6 weeks after you go home to fully recover.

JoMarcos Woods would collect in the game, and it would prove the decisive one. With the game tied at 7, the Knights came to bat in the bottom of the ninth inning hoping to They had a lot on the line, with a No. 14 NCAA ranking and a 27-7, 7-2 record to defend. They also had a bit of a grudge to satisfy after a wild six-error series opener left them smarting with an 11-4 loss on their hands. That game had been especially traumatic for UCF pitchers, who gave up only one earned run of the 11 that crossed the plate. For Brian Adkins, who fell to 2-1 on the season with that April 6 loss, the game was a nightmare. In three and two thirds in nings pitched he would strike out four bat ters, but he watched in horror as a slew of ing the plate in the fourth inning, none of which were attributed to him. But those memories were erased by Woods single that drove in the winning run to end the third game of the series at home. After hosting Florida A&M and Bet hune Cookman Tuesday and Wednesday at press time, the Knights will hit the road for Southern Miss for a three-game series before returning against Florida Atlantic on April 17. A massive string of blowouts propelled Winter Springs High School to six wins in a row to enter the week, as the Bears bats It started as the calendar turned to April, with the Bears (20-1-1, 6-0) baseball team facing Lyman (10-12-2, 3-8-1) and battering them with a 12-2 win. Then on April 4 they hosted Hagerty High School (16-4-1, 7-3-1) to avenge a 2-1 loss just two weeks prior. They did it in a big way, blasting the Huskies with a 10-0 shutout win. Will Owens batted 1.000 for the game, adding three RBI for the Bears. A day later, they traveled to Evans (310, 0-5) and launched into what would be their biggest rout of the season, winning 23-2. Their bats calmed down a bit on April 9 when they hosted Ocoee (12-10, 2-6) and won by a mere 7-2 margin. Theyll host Trinity Christian (9-10, 2-0) at 7 p.m. Monday, April 16, before regular season next week. Lions roarOviedo High School (12-10-1, 3-2) bounced back from a two-game losing streak to win two in a row against Semi nole and Lake Howell on April 4-5. Tyler Hayden and Ryan ONeill both brought out the big bats for the Lions against the Seminoles, blasting a homer each. Theyll travel to face perennial powerhouse Lake Brantley (13-11, 7-6) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, then hit the road for crosstown rival Hagerty at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, before stopping by Lake Mary (9-13, 4-7) to close out the regular season. Huskies reboundHagerty has had a string of ups and downs in April, entering the month on a six-game win streak before falling to Deland 2-1 on April 3 and then Winter Springs by a 10-0 blowout on April 4.

We visited topics dealing with job loss, resumes, how employment has changed since 2001 (think digital) and interviewing. I love listening to the presenters at these events because they have such great information for job seekers. The of HR Concepts, talked about putting to gether a sheet of PAR statements to help prepare for interviews. I love this! PAR statements are Problem, Action, Result. This is the perfect answer for behavioral interview questions. By writing down a list of problems you have faced, the actions you took, and the results, you are in a storytelling mode. We are not talking about petty prob lems; We are talking about ways you helped the company to grow, saved the company money, or made things better for you and your co-workers. For example, instead of saying I landed a $3 million account, you could say, When I took over the position, our networking connections, and diligent fol low up with potential customers, I was able to land a new account. This new account contributed to over $3 million in annual sales. Thats a true story for me. On a side note, I asked a very professionally dressed lady at the event to tell me about herself and she was stumped. Know the answer! Everyone asks it! Do you have any stories of bad inter viewers you would like to share? Please contact me at the information below. IInterview like youre worth it Strip-searching the Fourth AmendmentIf youre given a speeding ticket and forget to pay it for long enough, you may now be subject to a strip search. Thats a rather extreme example, but one thats now legally allowed thanks to a split 5-4 U.S. Supreme Court decision made Monday that allows search anyone arrested for any reason. Considering that America has the largest population of incarcerated residents in the world, thats an awful lot of humiliation about to happen. About 13 million people are jailed each year in the United States, wrote justice Anthony Kennedy, who drafted the majority opinion on the ruling, which split directly down political lines with the court. Dont think youll be among them? Not so fast. The ruling comes from a seemingly unlikely case. In 2005 Albert W. Florence was arrested and strip-searched for not paythat: He had paid it. Due to a clerical error by a New Jersey been processed. He found out the hard way what a clerical error can cost. Florence seemed an manager at a Philadelphia car dealership, he was riding in his BMW, driven by his wife, when she was pulled over for speeding. When police noticed he had an outstanding warrant for not paying a he was arrested, even though he had a court document in his possession proving hed paid it. Hed kept it, he told the New York Times, precisely to prevent this type of mix up. Standing alongside the highway, with proof that he should be free to go, he was arrested in front of his wife and 4-year-old son anyway. When he arrived at jail, he was strip-searched. When he was moved to another jail in another county, he was stripsearched again. It was humiliating, Flor ence told the New York Times. It made me feel like less of a man. He was in jail for more nally set free when the courts discovered the clerical error. his Fourth Amendment right against unlawful search was violated. Despite the obvious incompetence displayed in the arrest and treatment of a noncriminal in this case, Kennedy wrote that the courts are in no position to second-guess the judgments of correctional They are some of the very few in a position to second guess the judgment of corrections case. They simply failed to do so. Citing some of the more dangerous examples on hand, Kennedy noted that prior bomber Timothy McVeigh and a 9/11 conspirator. The implication being that since we have examples of arrestees committing worse crimes than those they were arrested for, anyone who is arrested for any reason even non-criminal reasons is immediately suspected of being in the act of committing more crimes. So why not strip search every body whos put in handcuffs? Dissenting judge Stephen G. Breyer wrote about his own examples: a nun who was strip-searched after being ar rested at an anti-war protest, a driver strip searched after driving with a noisy mufsearched after riding a bicycle without an audible bell. In states with some stricter laws, someone could conceiv ably be strip searched after feeding the homeless, for violating a leash law or for not using a turn signal. Florence thought police went too far in searching his naked body for drugs and weapons after he was wrongly arrested for a civil infraction he hadnt even committed. According to the Supreme Court, simply falsely arresting him wasnt far enough.
