Take a look at these tips! $ $ $ $ $ $ I t had been 30 years since Bruce MacFarlane had dreamed of climbing the red rock hills to that serenity in the sky atop Philmont Ranch, but the day was coming. Through 10 days of hiking over miles of gravel-covered hills and across pine-crested valleys hed lead 13 Boy Scouts to that rocky plateau he dreamed of when he was a boy. The 137,500-acre land scape had been waiting. It was just a few more weeks. His son Conner had just turned 15, old enough for the two of them prospective Eagle Scout and as sistant scout leader to take the adventure together. But that was before the call came in. Before the knock at the door. Before the moment Conner would never forget. The silence atop the moun tain broke with the simple triadic melody of Taps, a tired teens cracked lips letting the fermata notes linger and fade. Two boys stepped toward each other with each of the 13 folds they made to A taller boy in blue off to the right held tightly to his camera, recording the moment with one hand, and the photo of the troops smiling assistant scout leader with his other. His face tilted down, clenching back tears. None of us expected him to go, Conners mother Kris said of her sons journey. But I think inside of him he also thought this is something dad would want. A knock at the door A year earlier Bruce had applied for members of Oviedo Troop 617 to make the trip to New Mexico, but lost the lottery to at tend. When Bruce applied again for 2012, the Boy Scouts said yes. The daydreamed adventure over Philmonts mountains and rug date with reality: July 11. Bruce and Conner started pre paring months in advance, taking trips to outdoors stores to stock up on supplies. By July 6, all that was left was a last go-over of what But in between setting the west, the notice came in. Off of active duty for a decade and a newly reenlisted Army Reservist for mere months, Bruce was called up. From his post in Kandahar, Afghanistan, nearly 9,000 miles away, Bruce promised to guide Conner to live out his camp dreams without him. With his father deployed, Con ner applied and received a $500 itary Kids, which helps families to afford extracurricular program ming for their kids when a parent in the National Guard or Reserves is called to serve overseas. With camp scheduled and paid boarded the plane, the last step supplies. When the MacFarlanes family phone didnt light up that Friday afternoon with the 12-digit number that could only be dad, Kris, Chloe and Conner didnt One of the most famous mental breakdowns in movie history didnt happen on Earth; it hap pened in space. Dave, my mind is going, the sentient HAL 9000 computer said after killing most of its ships crew out of paranoia. I can feel it. UCF psychology professor Ed uardo Salas wants to know what happens to an astronauts brain when theyre deep in space for months at a time as will be the case when half a dozen astronauts mission to Mars. Aside from the obvious dis tance, the groundbreaking trip to lion miles is a long way from com fort, but provides an endless blank slate to ponder the unknown. Will months around Mars an eternity? Am I doomed? Is my crew plot ting against me? In space, no one can hear you dream.

Observer Ad-LomasLaw.indd 1 5/14/13 4:14 PM pens inside the mind of an astro naut on a mission to Mars. Last year, NASA started ac cepting research proposals to gather foundational information for the ambitious mission. Salas idea: comparing astronauts per formance in space with their men tal and emotional health. know the same answers he did. Four months later, Salas received the grants from the agencys John son Space Center in Houston, Texas. This is an incredible oppor tunity for UCF and an incredible opportunity for us to have an im pact, said Salas, who will begin research in August. Even though its a small thing, being a part of this is an indescribable feeling of professional satisfaction. ing software that detects levels of stress and fatigue in astronauts communication. The software will analyze keywords and phrases, and will help NASA be better pre pared to monitor astronauts for potential risk factors. Salas stressed that these fac tors play just as big of a role as the technology. Its not only the technology that is important here, and its not only the medical conditions, Sa las said. Its also how well they coordinate, communicate, cooper ate and maintain a healthy state of mind. Cognitive and emotional health will be put to the test on the approaching Mars mission astronauts will embark on a 24to 30month journey traveling for 10 months to reach the planet, orbit and another 10 months com ing back to Earth. Our long range goal is to in crease our missions from one week, which was a moon mis sion back in the s, to maybe one month, and then maybe one year, said Oviedo Councilmem ber Keith Britton, who works in NASAs project planning and con leaps and bounds in the durations of our missions as we continue to explore space. The longer these missions be come, the more the stress levels and those types of psychological factors will come into play. I think the isolation is one of the bigger ones. Previous statistics have shown a connection between isolation and levels of depression, irritabil ity and concentration. A common location for conducting isolation studies is in Antarctica, the closest landscape on Earth that compares to the harsh conditions of space. In 1989, 50 scientists spent the winter in McMurdo Station, an American Antarctic research cen ter. According to a study done by Professor Lawrence Palinkas of the University of California in 1992, 62.1 percent of the scientists reported feeling depressed; 47.6 percent reported feeling more irri table than usual; and 51.5 percent Professor Salas explained that teamwork also impacts the out come of a mission, along with a healthy state of mind. Team cohesion and the crews well-being is paramount to the success of this mission, because without them getting along, hav ing good team work and being in good state of mind throughout the mission, there could be cata strophic errors, Salas said. Professor Salas second project ciency of interaction between the astronauts and automated tech nology, observing how well the astronauts can complete objec tives. Britton concluded that studies like Salas will equip NASA astro nauts to not only complete their mission, but do it safely. Any small slip up that hap pens could have catastrophic ef fects. We know all too well how that happens, Britton said. Its very important that we do the very best we can to design these systems with enough rigor and redundancy to mitigate anything that can go wrong, and give the astronauts the best environment they can to do the research and carry out the mission that we give them. On one hand, youve got the best people for the job, but on the other hand, you want to make sure that theyre able to do the job and arent put in harms way anymore than they have to be, because exploring space is still a very, very risky business. Its a very unforgiving environment.

The climb Days of trekking behind them, the scouts stopped to take in the view of Trail Peak on July 21, placing their 50-pound packs down on the clearing among the pines. One by one, three of the boys paused to remove an item from each of their tightly packed photo. The utter silence of the sprawling ranch across the landscape, and the scouts hand I think it just really helped him cope, Kris said. If he could do this after dad died, he could do anything he put his mind to. Faces of the fallen Ten months later, the smiling face in the photo on the mountain was the same as the one staring back at Conner from the cross in the grass on Memorial Day: a red t-shirt poking out under his dads pressed khaki scout uniform collar, blue eyes and white teeth a bright contrast to his tan skin. crosses rising from the lawn of Oviedos Lawton House stirred memories a travel ling tribute to Floridas fallen soldiers orga nized and handcrafted cross by cross by St. Petersburg resident Jim Vanderbleek. On Memorial Day, May 27, 34 Boy Scouts and 24 adults from Troop 617 laid a handmade wreath at the base of each cross as 1,000 visitors looked on. Veterans in full dress blues and greens walked cross to cross, taking a moment to touch the top of each, while crowds gath ered around certain sections of alphabet ized memorial. The Salazar-Nelsons of Chuluota could be found in the Ss circling the cross for their son Brenden, killed in Afghanistan at age 20 last July. The Millers of Oviedo were in the Ms near the Mac Farlanes as they remembered 24-year-old Robert James Miller, who was killed in Af ghanistan in 2008. The ceremony was organized almost en tirely by Conner. For his Eagle Scout proj ect, the 16-year-old raised money to gath er supplies for the hundreds of wreaths through the First United Methodist Church of Oviedos Military Support Group. Then he enlisted fellow Scouts and family mem bers to make the tiny tributes by hand, that would know his fathers name. A month before that day, the MacFar lanes Oviedo home bustled, a sea of red, white and blue. Wreaths covered every open surface, from porch tables to bedroom Thick three-ring binders on the coffee ta ble chronicled months of planning, record keeping and hand drawn blue prints. The idea was born of twin inspirations: the Fallen Floridians Memorial Cross Trib ute displayed in Tampa, and the Wreaths Across America program, which lays fresh wreaths on fallen soldiers graves across forgotten. Scoutleader Greg Holcomb said the best Eagle projects combine a scouts individu al interests with the Boy Scout Oath to do duty to god and country, to other people and to self. That pretty much sums it up, when you look at an Eagle project and when you look at what Conners accomplished, all of that pretty much plays a role in his accomplish ments, Holcomb said. Conners project went above and be yond those of most scouts, said his former scoutmaster Dan Diehl so much so that Diehl said he hopes to nominate him for National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year. For him to take on this at his age and going through what he went through last year is pretty big, Diehl said. I dont think theres a lot of scouts that would want to not only have that much attention, but to even have to relive a memory like that and his familyBut hes a very strong kid, very responsible, and I think this was probably the best thing he could have done to honor [his fathers] memory and all the rest of the veterans who have served. In April, following his success at camp and starting work on his service project and a nomination from his mom Conner had already earned the title as a Military Kid of the Year from Our Military Kids, the organization that helped fund his trip to day trip to Washington, D.C. to receive the award and take a tour of the Capitol with Congressman John Mica. After the long journey in his fathers memory and the hundreds of tiny tributes to soldiers, Conners work continues. In his fundraising to make the wreaths, he raised $2,000 more than his supply costs. With that, Kris said, Conner and his younger sis ter Chloe will use $1,000 to purchase Christ mas presents through Operation Giveback Section 60 for local gold-star families who are separated from a parent by more than just miles. The other $1,000 will go back into fueling First United Methodists Mili tary Support Group. Kris said its part of the familys fullcircle of giving. Bruce dedicated his life to his military service, and after he passed, friends, neighbors and strangers came to gether in the community to serve their needs however they could. Now, whether its Conners wreaths, Christmas presents, or fresh baked cookie care packages sent overseas, Kris says its all a part of lifes big ger lesson. Just because something bad happens doesnt mean you cant make something good out of it, she said. Thats what Bruce would have want ed. Final footsteps Atop the peak at Philmont Ranch, after the minutes passed before anyone broke the si lence. Each of the 13 scouts, Holcomb said, had known Bruce and sought his guidance since he assumed the position as assistant scoutmaster years before. onto his dad with his other hand. It was that surreal. That breathtaking Holcomb said. It was a good healing mo ment for Conner and the troop and all in volved. With another four-hour hike to go until rest, the boys started back to the trail, but not before Conner tucked the smiling por trait securely back in his pack. Then Conner and his dad made their way to camp.

With draft-level talent on every roster, this is as close as Orlando gets to the big leagues, and it goes all summer long. The name College Park Free dom may sound familiar, but not quite. They used to play a bit down the road in Orlando. This year they made the move to Bish op Moore High School in College ing coach Scotty Makarewicz with them. The Freedom franchise will this summer.

Page 7 THIS WEEK in political history June 3, 1989 With protests for democratic reforms entering their seventh week, the Chinese government authorizes its soldiers and tanks to reclaim Beijings Tiananmen Square. By nightfall June 4, troops had forcibly cleared the square, killing hundreds and arresting thousands of demonstrators and suspected dissidents. As summer approaches, many of the crops common to our North American cuisine effectively stop growing well in the heat and rain. Although we can grow crops year round, our unfettered winter opportunities are punctuated by some unenforced down time through the depths of summer. Where in temperate climates, blanket of snow and cold, the end of our growing season is not as succinctly terminated. Actually, the weeds and bugs become an even a greater problem. Once weve mastered the mechanics of growing crops well enough to expect success, should we grow anything and ev erything? Since I plan my farming activities on the scope and scale of a community-supported mar ket garden, I constantly experi ment with crops that will grow well in our climate and soil, as well as crops that the customers in my community will purchase. Traipsing down the garden paths, past the beds of Di nosaur kale, green beans, carrots, radishes, peppers and scal lions, uncommon or experimental plants can be found. Rule of thumb: do not plant crop is already sold (or has a spot on my dinner menu). My goal of growing as many varieties of hot peppers as pos sible quickly came to an end when I realized that Paretos Principle of 20 percent of the va rieties sold 80 percent of the time was universally enforced. Many of the hot pepper varieties never made it to anyones dinner plate. Double indemnity: if you are saving seeds, pepper plants need to be separated by 500 feet to ef fectively avoid cross-pollination. I have winnowed the selection down to jalapeno, cayenne, and ghost peppers. Here in the South, looseleaf greens of collards and kale produce much better than heading or bulbing crops of the same species (Brassica oleracea) of cabbage, Brussels sprouts, or kohlrabi. Essentially photosyn thesis machines, the productivity of collards easily surpasses most other greens. But the market has spoken, with Dinosaur kale far outselling collards. I will always grow collards, but other varieties of greens, including Swiss chard or the numerous Asian types, will have a greater investment of space this coming year. Do not even get me started on tomatoes, Americas favor ite crop! After dealing with the spectrum of pest and soil nutrient demands of the larger slicing love apples, my successes have been mostly in the cherry tomato department. The ease of handto-mouth grazing, quicker ripening schedule, and more intense cherry tomatoes win for space in my garden. Folks are even coming around to the best tasting, but beyond ugly, black cherry tomatoes. Tom Carey is the owner of Sundew Gardens, a you-pick gardening business in Oviedo.

According to the U.S. Energy Information As sociation, the average American household spent $2,912 on gas last year just under 4 percent of their pre-tax income. But with some simple changes to your driving habits, you can save a few miles per gallon and cut your spending at the pump. Dont ignore your indicators. When the check engine light comes on, its usually for good reason. Many drivers ignore these warnings and their fuel economy suffers. For example, if your cars oxygen sensor isnt operating effectively, you can lose up to 3 miles per gallon (mpg). And one of the most overlooked causes of wasted gas is an imprecise cool ing system. Have your auto tech nician regularly check the cooling system to ensure it isnt running too cold, which can cause the cars computer to demand more fuel than it needs. ciency by as much as 10 percent. However, new cars only require tune-ups every 100,000 miles so many drivers arent changing wait that long to be changed. Check your owners manual for Make sure your gas and oil are manufacturer-approved. When choosing the right gas and oil for your car, the owners manual should be your guide. Dont opt for oil thats thicker than recom mended it can cause your en use more fuel. The same is true for gas. If your vehicle requires high-octane fuel and you use a less-expensive version, the cars sensors will detect it and youll lose power and fuel economy. Avoid ethanol. The more ethanol in your gas, the less mile age youll get. Gas stations are required to post that the fuel can contain up to 10 percent ethanol (but they arent required to post the exact amount) so some gas stations have less ethanol than others. You can try various with the lowest content and high est mileage. Compare your fuel economy with gas from different stations using a calculator, such as the one at www.fueleconomy. gov. Ive saved up to 3 mpg by lowest amount of ethanol. Pump up the tires. Keep your ing the owners manual, which will include the manufacturers recommended tire pressure. Its a simple step that can improve fuel Dont speed. As much as we complain about gas prices, its re markable how frequently drivers green or pound on the brakes at stop signs. Youll be surprised how much gas you can save by driving at moderate speeds and avoiding quick acceleration.

Its watershed drains 87,000 acres in Seminole and Orange counties. The combination of restricted the St. Johns River, urban and agricultural stormwater runoff, legacy wastewater discharges and remaining septic tanks, has propelled algae growth, lowered The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has determined Lake Jesup to be im paired not meeting water qual ity standards because of high nitrogen and phosphorus levels. In May 2010, the Department adopted a Basin Management Action Plan (BMAP), developed alongside 20 local and regional partners to identify projects and activities necessary to restore the lakes water quality. The action plan sets a 15-year timeline organized into three phosphorous reduction of 19,621 pounds per year. To reach the tions in phase one, the respon sible stakeholders are tasked to reduce total phosphorous by 6,249.5 pounds per year. Two years into phase one of the BMAP, stakeholders have rous by 9,082.5 pounds per year into the Lake Jesup watershed exceeding the targeted reduction in the BMAPs phase one by 45 percent. The reductions include 8,090.1 pounds per year of phos phorus credited at the time of the BMAP adoption, combined of 133.9 pounds per year while second-year reductions totaled 858.5 pounds per year. More than two dozen new or upgraded stormwater manage ment projects in Casselberry, Longwood, Maitland, Orlando, Oviedo, Sanford, Seminole County, Winter Park and Winter Springs have been essential to phosphorus reductions so far. In many of these stormwater devices use internal barriers, of untreated stormwater, allow ing solids and related pollutants to settle out into the boxes to be cleaned periodically. Subsequent stormwater discharged into the Lake Jesup watershed contains Another major initiative is the regional Solary Canal Stormwater Treatment Area, cooperatively built by Oviedo, Winter Springs, Seminole County and the St. Johns River Water Management District. This project has a system of weirs that divert trash and associated pollutants away from Lake Jessup into a treatment cleaned. The treated water then into Lake Jessup, improving its quality. Essential to measuring BMAP success and to developing and the Department, St. Johns River Water Management District and local governments regularly monitor water quality in the Lake Jesup watershed. Collected data will help stakeholders gain a bet ter understanding of the nutrient impacts on Lake Jesup and how best to address them. Complementing the monitor ing, stakeholders are conducting 20 research projects on topics tions to surface waters, stormwa ter nutrient loading, reclaimed water nutrient impacts, septic tanks and the effectiveness of best management practices. Research pollutant reduction targets and improve water quality projects in phase two and three. Lake Jesup is just one example of the Departments comprehen sive approach to identifying and restoring polluted lakes, rivers, streams, springs and estuaries through partnerships with local, regional and other state stake holders, both public and private. Collective, aggressive action is the path to successful water qual ity restoration.
