Opening this week: EVIL DEAD Its been nearly nine months since Seminole County said it would give $240,000 for Oviedo to renovate a neglected park. Thats when the clock started running for Oviedo to prepare its case for why Round Lake Park needed work, and to build it before the money would be revoked. On April 1, the Oviedo City Council quietly passed a resolu tion to move the Round Lake Park Project forward. The city pledged $60,000 in matching funds to add up to $300,000 for the renovation and improved safety for the park. [Round Lake Park] and Friend ship Park have the oldest play ground equipment, and those mate rials arent even allowed anymore, Councilman Stephen Schenck said. Friendship Park was completed two years ago. Its so nice that you forget it used to be rotting wood. The park renovation is expect months.

Take a hair off your head and split it into about 100,000 parts. One of those is equal to a nanometer the size of gold nanoparticles. Tiny pieces of gold has have had their place in the past. Back in the middle ages churches would use gold particles to give a shimmer to artistic window glass. But recently theyve made a comeback thats spreading across the science word. Thomas got started on his project when a colleague, Dr. Rongchao Jin, an associate pro fessor at Carnegie Mellon Uni versity, developed the particles for other applications. Now the two are working together to engineer the energy levels of the particle to manipu late the intensity of light spe In the experiments, Thomas has been working with gold-25 nanoclusters, each with exactly 25 atoms of gold in the particle. In this case, when you ir radiate it with this light, as you increase the intensity of the light, the output light goes down, Thomas said. That light radiation combined with the laser light has plagued pilots since the early s.

More than an hour after hopping a bus home after his second shift of the week, hes still wearing his uniform. Hes grateful to be working, even though the hours are slim. Hanging above the door frame in his room, a sign reads Help those in need to help themselves. These are valuable words for Gonzalez, who hangs up his hat and has a seat on the bottom bunk of his bunk bed. Its the mission statement of the Res cue Outreach Mission, a Sanford homeless shelter housing Gonza lez and his 23 roommates. The Rescue Outreach Mis sion, Seminole Countys only emergency and recovery home less shelter, plans to expand its facilities with a federal grant it received in 2011 in the hope of better serving its residents and the community. The $700,000 grant was awarded to the shelter through back against homelessness. The Rescue Outreach Mission plans to build onto its two buildings with a number of additions, in cluding more living space, a computer lab for job searching, and more consulting rooms and As of 2012, there are an esti mated 1,850 homeless people in Seminole County more than triple the amount in 2009, ac cording to the Homeless Services Network in Orlando. Pretty much what it means for us is that were growing in order to provide a service that is desperately needed, said Ana Pagan, the shelters develop ment director. Its more hope for us to shelter more people. Serving the community for 26 years, the shelter currently hous es 84 residents, with the men split up from the women and children into their own building.

The goal with these expan sions, Rescue Outreach Mission case manager Arie Childs said, is to get residents back on their feet even faster. does clash with my case handling, especially when Im handling something with the residents that is pretty private, so the consulting room will be another good asset that we can use, said Childs, who interviews and screens potential residents for the mens building. It gives the residents more lib erty to discuss whats really going on with them so well be able to help them a lot better. Gonzalez said he thinks those expansions could help the home less hone their resumes and get jobs quicker. Im happy for that. It sounds really great because that will help more people, said Gonzalez, who has lived in the shelter since May of last year. For the computer rooms, they will help the people to actually search for jobs, do their resumes and lease. Gonzalez is one of the many residents who are thankful for the services provided by the shelter. Before arriving at the Rescue Out reach Mission, Gonzalez was in the midst of a drug addiction that was eating up his rent money for his trailer home in Apopka. After losing his home, his mother sent recommended the shelter to him. Today, Gonzalez not only has a part time job at McDonalds, but is ready to move into his own apart GED at Seminole State College, thanks to the encouragement and direction from the shelter staff. Through them I found a job working at McDonalds now and Ive been drug free since May, Gonzalez said. They help me so much in staying out of problems and focusing on getting a job. It changed my life totally, thanks to the people at the shelter. I give them all the thanks. Expansions made to the wom en and childrens building of the shelter will soon be making room for 10 new beds. For shelter resi dent Cristy Skinner-Smith that means 10 more people will be given hope. I think it will be good, be cause theres a lot of people I see that need help; they call to come in, said Skinner-Smith, who has lived at the shelter for a month and a half. For them to say yep, we have a bed; we have an open ing will be a huge impact. A timeline and dimensions of the expansion is expected to be Its just hope; hope is com ing, Pagan said.

So far, Thomas and his col leagues have only tested the green light and how the gold clusters absorb that light. For the actual pair of protective glasses, it will need materials capable of absorb ing all colors. Both Thomas and Jin have plans to develop a protective pair of eyewear with these gold nano clusters on them for the pilots to For future work, understand ing the absorption in nanoclusters is to be pursued, together with ef forts to map out what factors can further improve the optical limit said. In order to optimize the eye glasses, all wavelengths of laser light must be tested. While Thomas is busy work ing, one graduate student, Panit Chantharasupawong, spends 8 to 10 hours daily working in the lab testing the different materials and manipulating nanoclusters. Despite the intensity of the project, it wont be perfected in one night. Thomas said he expects the development of a pair of these If the glasses were to hit the market today, Thomas predicts they would cost $500-$1,000. In Theres no escaping the changing value of gold, which once stan dardized the world economy. Though the gold standard may be a thing of the past, gold nano clusters seem to be a bright part of Thomas teams future.

A familiar beat bumps from the stereo, though its a little mel lowed out, slowed down to an easier moving pace. Exercisers room with a sound like horses galloping to the music. One arm twirls in the air while the other is held out in front, as if holding an invisible rein. Every once in a while, the instructor says, now slap that horse! And the stu dents laugh, taking a little whack toward their backsides, while keeping their hips swinging to the beat. Its not just the younger gen erations catching on to the newest dance trends seniors at Long woods Village on the Green re tirement community want in on the fun, too. Theyve been doing the Gangnam Style dance in their exercise class for months now, and theyve mastered the moves far better than many young dance club goers. Robert Geller, 90, saw South Korean singer Psy and his moves on a late night talk show, and knew that he had to bring the dance idea to the exercise instruc tor at Village. Hed already intro duced Zumba to the class, which has seniors who are 68 years old all the way up to 92, with great success, so he knew this dance had potential. I was fascinated with the mu sic and the dancing, he said. He brought it to instructor Tre va McGowan, but she was a little skeptical, even thought it was a they get to try it. So she studied the dance, found some slower music with a similar beat and Theres still the signature horse riding gallop, the lasso move and the spins, but at a slower pace and sometimes done sitting down. But the seniors are totally into it, never losing the groove and swag ger that makes the dance so fun. The seniors dont let age get in the way of trying new things. They are so open to any thing, McGowan said. Lou Gargaglione, 74, said he likes the faster pace of the Gang nam Style dance. Once a biker, skier and runner he could run upstairs faster than an elevator prime the challenge the class of fers is a welcome one.

Page 7 You probably arent too worried about it, but April is Stress Awareness Month. Each year, the Health Resource Network spon sors this month to inform people about the dangers of stress and to share successful coping strategies. Obviously, its important to reduce stress in all walks of life includ ing your investment activities. How can you cut down on the various stresses associated with investing? Here are a few possible stress-busters: constantly worrying about the value of your investments, your portfolio may simply be too volatile for your individual risk toler ance. Conversely, if youre always feeling that your investments will never provide you with the growth you need to achieve your long-term goals, you might be investing too conservatively. Know what to expect from your invest ments. Uncertainty is often a leading cause of stress. So when you purchase investments that are mysterious to you, you shouldnt be surprised if they perform in ways that raise your stress levels. Never invest in something unless you fully understand its characteris tics and risk potential. Be prepared for market volatility Over the long term, the financial markets have trended upward, though their past per formance cant guarantee future results. Yet for periods of months, and even years, these same markets can sputter and decline. So when you invest, be aware of this volatil ity; if youre prepared for it, you wont be shocked when it happens, and you should be able to better keep stress at bay. Maintain realistic expectations think your investments are going to earn a very high rate of return, year after year, you are more than likely going to be disappointed and you could easily get stressed out. Youre much better off, from a stress standpoint, not to expect eye-popping results. Diversify your portfolio only to own one asset class, such as growth stocks, and that particular segment took a big hit during a market drop, your whole portfolio could suffer, and it could take years to recover causing you no end of stress. But if you spread your investment dollars among a range of vehicles stocks, bonds, government securities and so on your portfolio has a better chance of weathering mind, though, that while diversification may help you reduce the effects of volatility, it cant prevent losses or guarantee profits.) Think long term your investment success by short-term re sults, you can feel frustrated and stressed. But when you stop to consider your objec tives, you may find that the most important ones, such as a comfortable retirement, are all long-term in nature. Consequently, it makes more sense to measure the progress youre making with your investments in pe riods of years, or even decades, rather than monthly investment statements, compare where you are today versus where you were 10 or 15 years ago. The results may well sur prise and help de-stress you. Stress Awareness Month will come and go. But by making the right moves, you can help take some of the stress out of investing for a long time to come. Help Yourself Reduce Investment Stress Brent Ramsey Financial Advisor Edward Jones 1875 W.CR 419 Ste. 300 Oviedo, FL 32765 PH: 407.359.8055 r f r n t b r f r rfn t b n t f t t t n t r f n n n t t n r f t r n f t n n t f f b nf f nr f r n f t nnrf b nr f n f n nt t b bn nr f nbf nr t t n rt r f n t b n n f n r f r n b r t t n r n n r r n t r r n r f n t t r r t n t t f n r n t r f r t n f f n f t r n r r n n r f n r n r r r f r t f f n r r r r r President Obamas attempts to blame Republicans for imposing allegedly onerous federal budget him. His fear-mongering raised so much interest that even some in the mainstream media now acknowledge that Mr. Obama was the author of sequestration, not the House Republicans, Dan Weber, president of the Associa tion of Mature American Citi zens, said. In his third presidential debate last fall, the president stated that the sequester was, not something that Ive proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed. David Gregory of NBC chal lenged the presidents chief economic advisor Gene Sperling on that point in an interview last week. After patiently listening to Sperlings lengthy attempt to sidestep the issue, Gregory forced Sperling to admit that yes, the president did not tell the truth, Weber explained. Nor did he tell the truth in the days leading up to the sequesters initial implementa tion when he and his surrogates publicly repeated several times a day that the sky would fall and that the budget cuts would have far-reaching effects on us all. The sky did not fall, his efforts to pin the blame on the GOP failed and, as it turned out, most people think the imposition of budget reductions is a good thing. In fact, many believe that the cuts do not go deep enough. Weber cited the tepid reac tions of the three major credit rating agencies, Fitch, Moodys and Standard & Poors. They told reporters that sequestration will have little or no positive impact on the countrys credit standing. They indicated that a lot more federal budget cutting needs to be done. Seniors seem to overwhelm ingly agree with that notion, ac cording to Weber. He pointed to a new AMAC website poll, which asked members and visitors whether they believe government spending via the sequester was good or bad. An exceptionally high number of responders took the survey 5,877 of them and an overwhelming majority of them, 97 percent of them said it is time we cut spending. The Association of Mature American Citizens (www.amac.us) is a vibrant, vital and conservative alternative to those organizations, such as AARP, that dominate the choices for mature Americans who want a say in the future of the nation. Where those other organizations may boast of their power to set the agendas for their memberships, AMAC takes its marching orders from its members. We act and speak on their behalf, protecting their interests, and offering a conservative insight on how to best solve the problems they face today. JOHN GRIMALDI Guest Writer An interesting study from the University of Pennsylvania shows that eating comfort food to help a bad mood actually can worsen the mood that the food was supposed to alleviate. In a paper presented recently at the American Psychosomatic Society conference in Miami, research ers revealed that positive moods didnt change one way or the other before or after eating com fort or junk food, but negative moods were made worse. The study used women partic ipants who were much younger, but the way they conducted the study makes me believe it easily could apply to seniors. Subjects were equipped with handheld computers to input their moods and foods multiple times per day. A study last year in the Public Health Nutrition journal revealed that people who ate junk food were more likely to be depressed by 51 percent. Many seniors are at risk for malnutrition even if were never hungry. If we turn to junk food, we might not have enough ap petite left to eat foods we should And if we eat to help a bad mood, we could be making it worse.

In a bad mood? Skip junk food Most Older People Have DiverticulosisDEAR DR. DONOHUE:I am a 78-year-old female,active and in good health or so I thought. I eat right and never smoked or drank alcohol. Yesterday,a colonoscopy showed severe diverticulosis. The doctor prescribed Benefiber,then left and never returned. I am stunned. What do I do now? Will I have this forever? Am I unhealthy? How does one develop diverticulosis? What the difference between osisand itis? S.K. ANSWER:Your world isnt collapsing. Youre healthy. Youll have diverticulosis forever. By age 60,half of the people in North America have it. By age 80,two-thirds have it. A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colons muscular wall to its outer surface. A diverticulum looks like a small soap bubble. Its only 1/5 to 2/5 inches (0.5 to 1 cm) in diameter. You can thank our diet for diverticulosis. We refine flour and throw away its bran the outer coat of grain. In countries where whole grains (including the bran) are commonly used,diverticulosis is a rarity. Bran and other fiber hold water in undigested food. Without fiber,the food residue dries and becomes hard. The colon muscles have to generate a great deal of force to keep it moving. That force causes the colon lining to pop through the colon wall as a diverticulum. For most,diverticulosis is a silent condition that remains silent for life. For a few,the diverticulum breaks and causes a local infection in the colon diverticulitis. The pain of a diverticulitis attack is usually felt in the lower left corner of the abdomen, and sometimes people have fever and chills along with the pain. The attack is treated by resting the tract and by giving antibiotics. Were supposed to get 30 grams of fiber a day. Fruits (especially those with edible skins),many vegetables and whole-grain products are the source of dietary fiber. If people cannot get enough fiber in their diet,then commercial products like the one youre taking fill the gap. Metamucil, Perdiem,Citrucel and Fiberall are other examples. The booklet on diverticulosis explains the ins and outs of this very common disorder. To order a copy, write:Dr. Donohue No. 502W,Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475.

DONOHUE:My husband has chronic blepharitis and frequently develops hard buildups in both eyes that cause great discomfort. The doctor must remove them two times a month. What can be done to prevent them? S.R. ANSWER:Blepharitis (BLEF-uhRYE-tiss) is inflammation of the eyelid margins,which become red and crusty. The crust can build up into hard deposits. A twice-a-day program of lid cleansing might eliminate the crusts. Have your husband apply warm compresses (a wet washcloth) to closed lids for five to 10 minutes and then massage the lids. After the massage,he cleanses the lid margins with a cotton-tipped applicator dipped in a solution of one part baby shampoo and one part water. The doctor might have to prescribe an antibiotic ointment. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

All Rights ReservedHow Does Your Hospital Rate?It really DOES matter what hospital you go to when you need care. Your life could depend on it. So says the seventh annual study by HealthGrades. This is the same group that tracks doctors,hospitals and nursing homes and assigns a grade for the level of care. Its latest study reveals that your risk of death can be cut as much as 27 percent if you get your care at a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence.To get that designation,a hospital has to pass a long list of criteria. The HealthGrades Web site [www.healthgrades.com] lists by state all of the Distinguishedhospitals. You can search (for free) for grades on a given hospital for any of dozens of medical conditions. Look for Research Hospitals on the front screen of the Web site. Its when you want a full report on a hospital that you have to pay a fee. Youll also have to pay a fee to check out a specific doctor or nursing home it costs money for the report. A much easier way to check on a hospital or doctor is on the governments Health and Human Services website [www.hospitalcompare.hhs .gov]. The HHS layout lets you compare multiple hospitals,right on the same screen. The information is very comprehensive,too. For example,one question concerns the percent of surgery patients who were given an antibiotic at the right time,within one hour before surgery. This is a small detail maybe,but crucial to ones recovery. To find out if there is a Distinguishedhospital in your area,check the HealthGrades Web site and then search for details at the HHS site. Still,if youre facing a major medical issue,perhaps paying for the HealthGrades report would give you needed extra information.

Dancing is a great workout physically as well as mentally, McGowan said. Theres hand-eye coordination involved, balancing on one leg and remembering moves when dancing Gangnam Style. A 2003 study published by the New England Journal of Medicine found that seniors who do ball room dancing at least twice a week are less likely to develop dementia. Its the only physical activity that has shown positive effects on the body as well as the mind. You have to stay busy mentally and physically, thats the key to longevity, Geller said. The seniors also said its important for them to keep trying new hobbies and chal lenging themselves to learn daily. Geller takes computer and Spanish classes, emails and plays sports at the Village on the Green. He takes Zumba, line and ballroom danc ing classes, too. I never danced before I came here, he said. Now they cant take me off the dance Ginny Engen, 90, and Gargaglione also agreed that the social aspect of the class is what keeps them coming back.

Page 13 The longest distance race in Florida high school track is a twomile test of psychology. Pacing, all but absent from a 100-meter sprint, becomes crucial when the race is 32 times as long. Some top runners prefer to hang back, to know the speed the next best run ner is willing to push early in the race. At some point, they strike, accelerating past in a bid to de moralize their opponent into not giving chase. But Bryce said she doesnt need to see her opponents to know what theyll do. She can hear them breathing. Hearing the beginnings of labored breath from Holy Trin ity sophomore Julie Wollwrath fourth lap at the Highlander In vitational at Lake Highland Pre paratory School, she said, gave her the extra push to turn a tight two-mile race into a record-setting blowout. As she approached the lapped the eventual thirdand second-place runner to the line by more than 37 seconds. The soon-to-be Florida Gator posted a personal and state record of 10:44.74 at Lake Highland Feb. 22, making her one of the fastest high school female distance run ners in the nation. That was all part of the plan, her coach said. Shes dedicated, motivated and knowledgeable, said Hager Getty. In order to be good you have to study the sport and you have to study your competition and she does a very good job of that. Her overdrive [in her train ing] sets her apart. Seymour says the goal is to be so you know you gave it your all, and thats become the signature for how this Hagerty High School senior runs her races hard and some distance runners may want to pace themselves, Bryce aims to push her limits. I like to lead, said a smiling Seymour. I like being in control of the pace. I dont like being in a group and going at someone elses pace. Thats not really my style. Seymours style doesnt just involve using her highly trained limbs to perform up to her stan dards; it also involves being strong mentally and thinking her way around the track.

Funny how a sport she started into out of curiosity could become such an obsession. Seymour said she didnt know right away that she wanted to be a runner. She said it wasnt until she saw her sister running in high school cross country and track events that she even took an interest in the sport. Once Seymour started running as a freshman, the results spoke for themselves. She laughingly says she began posting better times than her senior sister in the same events. Now a blossomed star among the high school ranks, this lady Husky says her focus is aimed at her young career so that she can start a new one at the University of Florida next season. The Gators will add one more piece to a pro gram that Seymour believes is an already amazing group. Im just taking it one race at ward to running at UF next year, she said. Theyre a great group of girls, and being a part of that team will be a wonderful experience. SEYMOUR | Heading to UF track team C ONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 UCF has kept fans on their toes with an up and down start to Con ference USA play thats left them with an 18-11 and 4-2 record. After a series sweep at UAB, the Knights came back home for a three-game matchup against Southern Miss that wasnt decid back fell just short. Game one was looking good for the Knights, who clung to a one-run lead until the fourth in ning. But things slowly fell apart for starting pitcher Ben Lively, who threw seven and a third in nings of four-hit ball, and gave up two runs on errors by the Knights up four runs in the game by a bizarre combination of throw pitches and walks. They lost 4-1. Game two of the series turned out better, though the Knights needed a four-run eighth inning to pull off the win. They were trailing most of the game despite the strong pitching of Chris Matu lis, who gave up three runs and The wild eighth started with a series of hits that had runners cir cling the bases, culminating with a bases-loaded walk that put the Knights in the lead. Thats all the lead theyd need, winning 4-3. Zac Favre tried to save the Knights in the third game, giving up just two hits in just more than four innings of relief, but they couldnt come back from a 4-1 hole theyd dug. Chris Taladays in two, but three straight batters were taken down by the Eagles Bradley Roney, ending things 4-3. The Knights traveled to face the Florida Gators (13-15, 4-5) at press time, and will hit the road for Memphis (15-13, 2-4) starting April 5. After that theyll play two more at 3 p.m. April 6 and 2 p.m. April 7. Then theyll take on Inter state-4 rival USF (13-13, 3-1) at 7 p.m. April 10 in Tampa. Good news for the Knights: The last time they played the Bulls, on Feb. 28 of last year, they won in a 12-1 blowout. Fun Knights trivia: UCF slugger D.J. Hicks had four RBI and struck out two as the starting pitcher in that game. He was intentionally walked in the second inning, but gave up no walks while he was on the mound.

Page 15 The new buzz around town is the groundbreaking of the long anticipated Oviedo on the Park project. On Thursday, March 21, the City Council and PAC Land Development broke ground on the new develop ment. Surrounded by dignitaries from the county and neighbor ing cities, the dirt marked the start of the new downtown. The project will see a mixed development of residen tial units, commercial, retail and veterans memorial, an amphithe ater and a city park that mean ders around a lake at the center of the project. The initial construc tion and the park are expected to be completed in about two years. Oviedo on the Park is seen as the keystone for the transformation, blending the old downtown with the new downtown and provid ing the impetus for development between the two areas. The project also includes the Mitchell Hammock corridor, which con tinues to boom with new growth. On March 30, the Easter Bunny visited the Oviedo Sports Complex for the annual Marsh mallow Drop. Mr. Bunny dropped hundreds of marshmallows from his heli copter while the marshmallow hunters collected them and traded them in for treats. Are you interested in learning about the inner workings of the city? You can do just that by registering for the Community Police Academy. The academy will meet one night a week for 11 weeks beginning on April 9. Applications are available at the Oviedo Police Department, the COPS center at the Oviedo Mall, and on the city website. More information on these events is on the website under Events on the left side of the main page at cityofoviedo.net THIS WEEK in political history April 5, 1951 Death sentences are imposed against Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, after they were found guilty of conspiring to transmit atomic secrets to the Soviet Union. The only seriously incriminating evidence came from a confessed spy who was given a reduced sentence to testify against them. Mayor Dominic Persampiere OVIEDO CITY TALK The Biblical axiom for what soever a man soweth, that shall he also reap holds sway for most things in our lives. Our gardens are one of the best experiments to witness this direct return on our investment. Improperly managing na tures catalyst, water, will not produce our ex pected bounty. A balance must be achieved, and with water, known as the poor farmers fertilizer, too little or too much results in an unappetizing dividend. As spring days get longer and warmer just as rainfall tapers off to a trivial memory, our gardens potential for productivity soars to unexpected heights. Simple quantities of irrigation, usually suggested at one inch each week, are easily determined with a rain gauge and observation. This sim plicity ends when establishing transplants and directly seeded crops or applying fertilizer mixed with our irrigation water. The ratio of the size of plants to their containers and soil mixes may result in required daily attention. Carrots ready for harvest can develop soft rotten spots if exces sive moisture stagnates in upper layers of the soil. Most gardens will grow nicely when district water management rules for lawns and landscapes are followed. Overhead sprin klers run during morning hours will meet most crops growth needs. Drip and micro-irrigation systems complete their tasks almost invisibly. A timer at the hose bibb set for a schedule or on a manual timed period eases our chores. While I may skip a manual soaking, this mechanized enforcer keeps my routine stable. Hand water new crops by al lowing a shallow pool to puddle and settle the soil particles around the seeds and transplants. Then mulch exposed soil to re strict harsh conditions delivered by winds and sun. Follow up on a daily basis until the immature plants are established, with their roots becoming part of the strata. This rooting routine helps tiny carrot seeds begin their journey to our nutritional banquet. I use a few homemade tricks to juggle watering requirements of my gardens. A layer of news paper under shredded mulch doubles their individual soil-pro tecting effectiveness and restricts bucket with a few eighth-inch holes drilled near the bottom, onto our crops root zones. A dash of liquid fertilizer into the bucket simultaneously accom plishes similar goals. The volume of rain collected over the acreage of our roofs is stunning. Find alternatives to using drinking water for irrigation by catching our increasingly sporadic rainfall. We have all the resources neces sary to grow much of our food; we just need to manage them in proximate time and space. The Easter Bunny has come and gone. I hope all had a wonder ful weekend.
