Opening this week: THE BIG WEDDING A day after Oviedo City Manag er Kathryn Breazeale suddenly resigned her post citing a need to maintain the safety of my children, myself and this city, Council members expressed shock as they agreed to her sev erance at an emergency meeting Monday. What they did know was that a personal struggle that Breazeale had endured had been going on for some time. Breazeales es tranged husband, Will Breazeale, was arrested in late January on accusations of aggravated stalk ing, cyber stalking and death threats, allegedly telling her he would destroy her. The city manager said she felt she would have to leave the city to avoid further issues. Its obvious that the abuse, harassment and cyberstalking Ive endured are continuing, de spite the fact that the legal sys tem is trying everything to stop it, she said. Councilwoman Cindy Drago said shed asked Breazeale to re on her nearly two-year tenure heading the city as phenom enal. Shes made the city better, Drago said. Shes brought team work back again. She brought stability. She brought and en vironment where people were happy to come to work. In the meantime, assistant city manager Bryan Cobb has been appointed as interim manager. Though he said he has full Dominic Persampiere said hes sad to see Breazeale go. We have a person who is stuck between a rock and a hard place, who has done an admi rable job despite the issues, but there comes a point when the pressures of your personal life become too much to bear, he said. Shes going to go on to one day be a great city manager somewhere, and its all very un fortunate that this happened to occur on our watch. Breazeale will stay on as a consultant for six months work ing remotely, though her location will remain a mystery. I will do everything I can for this city, she said. It can show itself in the clumsi ness of feet, tripping over barely there sidewalk cracks and carpet corners; the growing laziness of the tongue, slurring everyday speech making regular enuncia tion labored; the suddenly in creasing inabil ity to fully grasp a loved ones hand. The symp toms that lead to a Lou Gehrigs disease diagno sis can differ, but the accom panying weight of its sentence is uniformly grave. Right now, its a death pen alty, UCF College of Medicine professor Alvaro Estevez said. Death is a universal truth, but those diagnosed with Lou Gehrigs also known as ALS at an average age of 55, face an average life expectancy of three cording to the national ALS As sociation. Following the news of a mans ALS diagnosis, Estevez remem bers sitting in the room with the patient and his doctor, the man pleading for any help and hope of making it a few more years to see his young children graduate from high school. That was the only thing that he wanted, Estevez said. And a couple more years, that would give him that.

There are 11 miles of existing track that run from the planned San ford station to the airport and deadend in Winter Springs, which for a $10 purchase by the Florida Depart ment of Transportation could con nect the two, allowing travelers to make their way from plane to train, minus the automobile. But, FDOT spokesperson Steve Olson said, its not that simple. The original SunRail deal negotiated in 2007 gives the station 30 years to decide to purchase the additional rail for the $10 price. But with that comes the cost of maintaining it. the future, and you dont want to close the door on those opportu nities But once you own it, you need to maintain it, Olson said. Before money or rail changes hands, Seminole County and San ford will work to pull together a feasibility study to measure the rid ership and cost of constructing the expansion.

For more than 20 years Este vez has been leading research into the functions of proteins and how clues of how they oxidize in the body may hold the secrets to treatments for many pathological diseases from ALS to cancer and heart disease. He, with the help of scientists and researchers in universities across the nation, have found what theyve named an execu tioner protein, which through a certain form of oxidative stress called tyrosine nitration turns a cell into an executioner shutting down and killing itself. Its a protein thats associated with survival, so when the cell is in trouble they produce huge amounts of this protein to sur of one residue in these proteins actually shifts these proteins from this pro-survival action to a dead pathway, he said. By knowing this, Estevez said he is hopeful that his team can develop a drug to halt tyrosine nitration an oxidative process curring, protecting healthy cells tion being a predominant factor in the cause of the process, and a common occurrence in the onset of many pathologies, its possible, a long list of different conditions from strokes to spinal cord inju ries. In the worst condition, we have a diagnostic tool so we can there is a problem. In the best con dition we have a target, so if we logical tool to attack these protein and prohibit these negative ac tions, then we may have a treat ment for disease, Estevez said. Dr. Neil Cashman, a specialist and scientist in ALS for 25 years, said Estevezs research is in an avenue hes never seen explored for all those whove been search ing for treatments and cures of neurodegenerative diseases for decades. be kind of a breath of fresh air, Cashman, the academic director of the Vancouver Coastal Hospi tal ALS Centre, said.

The process of taking Este them into an FDA-approved drug could, at the very least and if ev erything from now until then fell into place perfectly, take a mini mum of 10 years. But, Cashman ress well overdue. Our goal is to develop a cure, Estevez said. And we are going to do whatever it takes to get there.

Known for using its Brook lynized water in all of its prod ucts, from cinnamon raisin bagels to the Cubsta, an iced coffee, the company expanded April 10 by opening a store at 4026 N. Golden rod Road in Winter Park, where it can produce about 500 pounds of bagels, or roughly 10,000 bagels, every day. Before a bagel is edible though, it must endure a day-long journey. A bagel is born in the dough stage, where employees blend to lynized water and other special ingredients into a rotating mixer to create the thicker-than-a-blan ket, soft substance. Visible to all customers at the wide-ranging, unsecretive seethrough preparation window, the dough is then placed as thick strands onto an elongated, metal automatic bagel former, capable of muscling out one bagel per sec ond, where it rolls down a convey or belt and is tightly squeezed into a burrito. This burrito of dough is the iconic ring shape. Rick Stewart, a manager at the Winter Park location, helps give a bagel life by creating the dough and gently placing it on the bagel other ingredients stuffed in large, clear containers directly behind him, Stewart said he likes how the food at this restaurant is made di rectly in the store. Everything is from scratch, said Stewart, who has been im mersed in bagels and water for about one month now. I love the food business, and I believe that when youre preparing food, you should use the best quality ingre dients you can source. No longer just a strand of dough, the bagel proofs overnight in a walk-in refrigerator, like a rising bag of popcorn in the mi crowave, so that it will be ready the following day to boil and join nearly two dozen others at a pool lynized water. Michael DAngelo, who has four years of experience with these bagels and is also a store manager at the new location, says the water at The Original Brook lyn Water Bagel Co. is unlike any other water around. Its cleaner, its better for you, its healthier, DAngelo said. The water goes through a 14-stage process in a proprietary water treatment system, notice able to customers as soon as they step foot inside the red, white and blue-themed building, where it is found in Brooklyn water. To Stewart, bagels in Florida need the Brooklynized water. Its all about the water, Stew art said. Unless you have good water, you cant make a good ba gel. After its bath, the bagel may or into poppy, sesame or other vari ous seeds, and is then baked to a crisp brown in a massive, cubeshaped gas oven, which bakes anywhere between 425 and 500 degrees and can muster up to of darkened wood planks at any given time. Having taken a day to grow up, nal destinationthe a customers mouth. It is then, DAngelo hinted at joyfully, that people will see what makes their bagel special. When you have a bagel, DAngelo said, youll be like Oh my God, this is what a bagel should taste like.

The loss also derailed their shot at the postseason. against the second worst baseball team in Conference USA, but they spent the next two games destroying the Marshall Thun dering Herd last weekend. The win helped bolster the Knights with their third conference series win of the sea son, but it wasnt looking good at the start. The Knights watched in horror as the Thun dering Herd (14-24, 4-8) turned a Knights comeback into a 10th inning disaster to take In one inning they got it all back in their second game with a three-run rally that put them on top for good to take the win, 3-1. Erik Hempes two-run blast, followed by a Jeramy Matos double made it possible from the plate. Meanwhile Ben Lively struck out nine in 7.2 innings to take the win. Game three was like dessert for the Knights, who sailed to an easy 11-0 blowout thanks to a three RBI performance by James Vasquez. Brian Adkins, who had struggled to bring his record to 2-6 as he struck out four in a complete game shutout. This weekend the Knights (22-19, 8-7) enter one of their toughest series of the sea son hosting Houston (27-14, 7-5) in a threegame series starting at 6:30 p.m. Friday. 4 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday. Theyll face Bethune-Cookman in a non-conference matchup at 6:30 p.m. May 1 before hitting the road for three at Florida State.


Page 7 THIS WEEK in political history May 1, 1926 Ford Motor Company becomes one of the first companies in America to adopt a five-day, 40-hour week. In early 1914, Ford had announced it would pay workers a minimum wage of $5 per eight-hour day, upped from a previous rate of $2.34 for nine hours. This past week I had the won derful opportunity to present at a business plan contest at the University of Miami. It was an amazing experi ence, and even better when we found out that we won! Putting together the business plan took quite a bit of research and work. When it was done, we sent it in. They graded it and gave us feedback. From there, we revised the plan and prepared to present it presenting, they asked us lots of questions. We had to be able to defend our plan. This is much like the interview process. Your resume is like the plan. Have someone evaluate it. Take the feedback and see how you can improve. I caution you not to get too many opinions, because they will all be different. The presentation is like your interview. Do the research on the company. Be prepared to defend and highlight your resume. Find typical interview questions on the Internet and prepare your responses. Before we presented, my copresenter listed 10 questions she thought we might be asked, and we made sure we were prepared to answer them. We arrived early with networking. In the end, we were prepared, presented well and received the award. Planning and preparation can make a huge difference be tween getting the job and coming in second place. The checkout lane of my grocery store left me frustrated last week. Not because of a long line, but due to a tabloid headline about Kim Kardashian. According to the magazine, she is demanding an early cesarean section. If this report is accurate, Ms. Kardashian may not realize that a cesarean section before 39 weeks is exceptionally dangerous for her baby. A study published by the New England Journal of Medicine found that babies delivered just two weeks early by elective cesarean section were twice as likely to suffer from a variety of serious health issues, including underdeveloped lungs sugar. Cutting a little time off a pregnancy is just not worth the risk of your baby spending weeks in a neonatal intensive care unit, or worse. This is not an issue for just celebrities. Nearly 1 in 3 pregnant women opt for a C-section. And the rise in the U.S. The overuse of the procedure is one of the reasons that the State of Florida fares so poorly on a prematurity report card from the March of Dimes. We earned a D, with 13 percent of our states babies born too soon. Each of those children has a story. The health challenges dont end when they leave the hospital. Many will face a life time of serious, complex health problems. The March of Dimes Cam paign Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait seeks to improve ob stetrical practice and raise public awareness around this issue. On April 27, I will join thou sands of people at Lake Eola Park for the March of Dimes March for Babies, an event dedicated to reducing prematurity and seeing healthier babies. The funds raised by the March of Dimes help support programs in education, clinical care and research in the achieve this goal, when everyone, from policy makers, to parents, to health care providers to celebri ties, commit to taking the steps to see fewer babies born too soon. Dr. Victoria Niklas is the chief of neonatology at Nemours Childrens Hospital in Lake Nona. A few weeks ago we broke ground for Oviedo on the Park, but have you seen whats going on out there now? The ground has been leveled in preparation residential units. It wont be buildings rise from the former or ange groves. One word of caution if youre driving in the Oviedo will be heavier on both Mitchell Hammock Road and Clara Lee Evans Way, and on State Road 434, so please be careful there. This years citizen police acad emy started off with a bang. No from each city department. The government information presen tations were varied and diverse, and provided the class with lots of food for thought. Several Council members attended, and the class had lots of questions for them and for city staff. On April 17, Council and city staff participated in a retreat to begin developing a strategic plan for the citys future. The last round of strategic planning took place several years ago and as always, new things impact the citys focus. The session was pro ductive, and we will soon have a new strategic plan. Again this year, the city will celebrate Arbor Day with a Tree Giveaway on Saturday, May 11, beginning at 9 a.m. A limit of two trees per city residential address will be available for those whose as a city resident. There will be a choice of trees available while supplies last. The types include: Bald Cypress, Southern Mag nolia, Red Bud, Dahoon Holly, Live Oak, and Crepe Myrtle in Natchez white and Tuscarora dark pink. For more information you can call 407-971-5668. Stay tuned, theres lots more things coming up! Business pitches: just like interviews W aco, Oklahoma City, Col umbine, Boston. Aprils juxtaposition is truly stunning as nature welcomes delicate new life and man wreaks carnage on its own species. Always there are more questions than answers. Bostons history and heroes Since 1897 Bostons iconic tradi tion has beckoned committed individuals from all over the world, the same as those who rose on a hopeful Monday morn ing, but hours later felt agony as their limbs, security and spirits were shredded. The images of a mangled pressure cooker, bloody ball bearings and protruding bones are beyond disturbing. Fortunately we can cling to other visions, those of our better angels heroes who admin istered triage on site and over looked their own safety to run to the aid of strangers. The steel spirit of a young man who lost his legs yet fought through the fog of trauma and morphine to articulate the clarity of his last memory, a bag dropped at his feet and the eyes of a killer. The quiet gentleman, who cared for his ailing wife, stepped outside ping tarp on his boat. and blood, and has anchored our country against the sea spray of the rocky Atlantic coast and the raw bite of New England noreasters. Bostonians have fought Indians, British soldiers, mobsters and competing sports teams. Centuries of debates in the halls of Harvard and MIT, pas sions in its boxing rings and bars, streets and sports arenas fuel Bos tons innate sense of survival. Spring lessons Nature has its own rules for sur vival, and although it is simul taneously beautiful and brutal, healing and inspiration can be found there. Our spring is dif ferent from New England where possibly beautiful apple and dog wood blossoms after months of gray and brown. Central Florida spring nevertheless offers lovely breezes, low humidity and new growth. So I take a deep breath and try to listen for its wisdom. Hummingbird Warriors A few weeks ago when the evening winds were picking up and rain bands began their march eastward, I saw a hummingbird from my kitchen window. It hovered in the jasmine vine and I heard the hum of its wings, like the smooth purr of a small engine. It paid no mind to the impending storm so focused it seemed to be on the job at hand. Folklore shows that the Taino Columbus, and they believed the hummingbird spread life on earth. Some were called Hum mingbird Warriors because they defended their territories with the heart of an eagle. Humming birds are like that. Their behavior They are carnivores. Although their lifespan is only around four years, they make every wing and heart beat count.
