Central Florida Regional Hospital CEO Wendy Brandon and Oviedo Mayor Dominic Persampiere addressed city and location about the ERs community role in saving lives, hinting that the emergency room will only be the beginning. Back in the late s, this was just a visiona dream and a vision for Eastern Seminole County, Persampiere said. The property that were standing on was under a lot of development pressure, but the councils denied a lot of things that wanted to be here, because we knew that one day we would have the start of a medical village here in the city of Oviedo. This is only the beginning. We couldnt be prouder. Oviedos new 11,000-squarefoot ER, a department of Central Florida Regional Hospital, features 12 private patient rooms, a trauma room and areas for CT Scans, Ultrasound and X-ray ser vices.

Just as the missile approaches the asteroid and crosses The radiation from the explosion vaporizes the top layer of the asteroid into space dust and exerts a force so strong that it sends the tion. The mission succeeded. Disaster averted. Researchers and professors like Dr. Dan Britt of the University of Central Florida understand tude come from tireless research area of study that UCF plans to explore even further. NASA awarded UCF a grant for $6 million earlier this month to kick start its future Center for Lunar and Asteroid Surface Science, a collaboration of researchers from around the globe led by UCF that will focus on asteroid and moon exploration. The group of researchers will be led by Britt, a physics and planetary science professor and former chairman of the Division for Planetary Sciences of the American Astronomical Society. Its going to expand what were already doing in Central Florida and make it truly an international center for research and exploration for asteroids and moons, Britt said. It will allow us to work more closely with some of the best people in the world. Its important to understand how a giant moving rock in space works before sending any kind of spacecraft, Britt said. The way you reduce risk, explore smarter and reduce costs is ground as you can before you design your hardware and bring in your engineers, Britt said. Thats what were going to do is try to explore NASAs exploration goals with smart science. The 45 researchers are a taking on a variety of projects related to asteroids, tackling different facets of the space rocks like composition, temperature, and the frequency that they enter Earths atmosphere. Some UCF research focuses on extracting resources from aster oids, which contain carbon. This element could potentially be extracted from the rock and burned down into fuel and water, turning asteroids into gas stations along expeditions to Mars and beyond. Something like that has 12 percent water and 5 percent car bon, said Britt, emptying out a pebble-sized meteorite from a plastic bag onto his desk. You could cook off a lot of useful stuff out of there, because carbon is what you drive your car on. But sending an astronaut or spacecraft onto an asteroid isnt as simple as it may sound, Britt said. Many asteroids are a collection of rubble held together by a gravitational pull, like a sandbar in space. Britts research focuses on asteroid composition and how the weathering of asteroids over time changes the surfaces an astronaut encounters.Landing on space rocks Please see ASTER OIDS on page 2 PHO T O COUR TESY OF NASA UCF researchers want to know how to land on, and possibly destroy, asteroids.TIM FREED The Voice ribbon on new Oviedo ER NASA grant to support asteroid research at UCF

Now that we have additional space and availability, our rescue units will deliver in a quicker time frame and become available back in service quicker for the next 911 call. Thats huge. Were excited to see what that impact is. White noted that the Oviedo ER campus is designed to grow and projected that talks of expansion may begin after an initial sixmonth to one-year period. Oviedo ER Administrator Janet Livingston said she couldnt wait to begin taking in patients. Oviedo has a long history of taking care of each other, and I feel that the missing link, the missing piece to really making this a healthy vibrant community has been to have resources for emergency care, Livingston said. of living in Oviedo and enjoying many of the resources and services that are available to us. Now, it will be my pleasure to serve all of you, and to give back to this community. The Oviedo ER should begin accepting patients by the end of this week, Mayor Persampiere said during Mondays City Council meeting. Youre not so much as standing on something as formation exactly does that work when youre dealing with what you think is a solid surface? Co-investigator and UCF Physics and Astronomy Professor Humberto Campins research focuses on comparing the asteroids with other asteroids tucked away in the asteroid belt to better understand where theyre coming from, information that could help Earth prepare for an incoming asteroid. Campins said hes pleased to have UCF recognized by NASA with the $6 million grant. Its an indication that were doing well, that were competing at a national and international level, Campins said. The continued grants from NASA put UCF on a pedestal as having one of the top planetary science departments in the country. Earlier this year, the university received a $55 million grant to develop and launch a device that photographs the earths atmosphere, as well as a $1.8 million grant to study the mental stress levels of astronauts. UCF graduate student Tracy Becker saw the NASA grant not only as an opportunity for aster oid and moon research, but for any area within UCFs planetary science program. It means we should hopefully be hiring new faculty in the department, which enables more classes to be taught from new perspectives, said Becker, who studies Saturns rings. Depending on who they hire, maybe they will offer a course that was not otherwise available just because of the expertise of different astronomers. It means that the university, program, is about to improve and become a big thing in the communityThis will really put us on the map and people will recognize UCF as a stronghold in studying planetary science.

After almost 35 years of cooking, Ive had my share of Thanksgiving Day disasters! Here are some secrets to saving your sanity and your Thanksgiving dinner: HOW TO DEFROST A TURKEY Youll need at least 24 to 48 hours to thaw a frozen turkey in the refrigerator. If you need to do a quick thaw, place the wrapped, frozen turkey in your kitchen sink or a large container like an ice chest. Cover the turkey with water every half-hour. It will thaw two pounds per hour. PREPARING THE BIRD FOR COOKING Remove the giblet package (neck, inside the cavity of the bird and check the neck cavity. Some manufacturers place the giblet package in the neck cavity and others place it inside the cavity closest to the legs. Most turkeys come with the legs already trussed (crossed and secured If youre not going to stuff your bird, theres no need to truss the legs. Trussing an unstuffed bird hinders the hot oven air from circulating inside and around the legs. This means that the dark meat will take longer to cook and the breast meat will cook faster and probably dry out before the legs ever get completely done. THE TURKEY ISNT DONE Dont rely on the pop-up timer in the turkey, as it usually means that the breast is overcooked and the dark meat isnt done. If the dark meat isnt done, remove the wings and breast meat from the rest of the turkey, in one piece, if possible. Cover the breast and wing portion with foil and set it aside. Put the drumsticks and thigh portion of the turkey back into the oven to continue cooking until done. You can re-assemble the whole turkey and garnish it, or just cut it into serving portions and arrange it on a platter. STUFFING SAVERS wet, spread it out in a thin layer on a sheet pan so that it will dry quickly. Place it back into the oven for 5 to 7 minutes. If its too dry, add more pan drippings or chicken broth to the mixture. SOUPY MASHED POTATOES Add unseasoned dry breadcrumbs to soupy mashed potatoes to absorb any excess liquid. GRAVY RESCUE TIPS If the gravy is lumpy, pour it through a strainer into a new pan and bring it to a simmer, stirring gently. If its too thin, mix a tablespoon of melted butter with gravy up to a boil and whisk in the butter mixture to thicken your gravy. If the gravy is too thick, add a little more chicken broth, pan drippings or a little water and butter to thin it out. BURNT OFFERINGS If the turkey begins to burn while immediately and continue to cook it. After the turkey is done, you can remove and discard any blackened skin and about half an inch of the meat below any burnt area. If your vegetables or gravy burn on the bottom, carefully remove the layer that isnt burned into another pot or serving dish. Dont scrape the bottom of the pan! If the dinner rolls are burned on the bottom, just cut off as much as you can, butter them, and fold them in half to cover the missing ends. Whipped cream is the perfect make-up for desserts. Have a blessed Thanksgiving! Dont let mishaps ruin Thanksgiving dinner HEA T HLY LIVING

At 6-5 on the season, they hosted a Neptune Beach Fletcher squad that had gone 9-2 in the regular season. It ended in a 20-0 loss for Winter Springs. The momentum was already in Fletchers favor as the game approached. The Bears were still coming to terms with a 35-28 week of the regular season.

TALK T O SANDI > EMPLO YMENT Ask Sandi Grocery store bins are brimming with mounds of sweet potatoes, green beans and frozen turkeys while pumpkin pie, baked apples and cinnamon sweeten our senses. Thanksgiving 2013 is here and our village has much to be thankful for. Our hurricane season was quiet, our Geneva Elementary school continues to beat strong at the heart of Main St. and at least for the moment gas prices are lower. We have family, friends and neighbors to lean on and a generous community fuels local food banks, thrift stores and family programs to help those in need. Thankful PlusWhen someone is asked what they are thankful for, the knee-jerk reaction is usually family and friends. Pressed for more details most would elaborate with spouse, children, parents, pets, God, home and country. Have you noticed how your thankful meter spikes when you fear losing something or someone important? A young father serves worlds away in the military, an aging mother struggles to breathe in a hospital ward, the family dog wanders away or a new job moves family members to a distant city. Circumstances like this fuel our fears. Has the time come when we might lose a precious family member? This applies to material things as well. Remember tions we had to quickly assess what we considered most precious and what to let go? How ironic that what we say about thankfulness and what we actually do about it are often two different things. As much as we love our children, as a society we do not nurture them. Many are obese. Domestic violence continues to harm and isolate American families, especially women and children. Millions of children are caught in the web of huA few weeks ago we fooring them and recognizing their service. Statistics show that at least one U.S. military veteran commits suicide every day. Post-traumatic stress and haunt them minute-by-minute. Can we do more than verbally How can we assist with their employment, donate to organizations like Wounded Warriors and help the military families? How can we help kids who go missing every day at the hands of a lucrative and addictive child pornography industry? How can we protect our kids from Internet predators? These are enormous global issues and yet they are as personal and nearby as a family member or neighbor with a dark secret. We say we are thankful for our country, but do we remember our history and our Constitution? Are we familiar with the records of politicians we elected? What do our children know about their history and government? When we accept half-truths as misspeaking, when we are silent as public oftime to ask ourselves honestly... how thankful are we really? This Thanksgiving let us not only say the words we expect to hear but take a next step to pair those words with action.

Our discussions ended up landing on two things: the number of people working parttime who should be working full-time, and There are many companies who are promoting themselves as veteran friendly and have big plans to hire veterans. The problem is many of these companies are looking for entry level or lower paying jobs to be in the military, veterans are coming back in need of jobs that can support them and their families. One of the points of our discussion centered on resume terminology. It is impor tant for veterans who are re-entering the translation from military terms to standard terms for job descriptions. O-net has a translator that can help to take military terms and turn them into the more resumeThe other point was resources. As veterans, sometimes people coming out of the military are not always aware of all of the programs out there to help them. The Central Florida Disability Chamber, the Veterans Administration and Workforce Central Florida all have people and resources dedicated to helping veterans return to the workforce. There are also job fairs that are specific for veterans and those that are veteran friendly. In January, the Central Florida Employment Council will have the Mayors job fair and it will be focused on gener al jobs from entry level to midand upperlevel jobs, but veteran friendly employers will be noted in the catalog. Syracuse University has a great website for their program, but it also has information that is helpful to veterans in general. There are resources out there for vets, Calling all military vets King Features Weekly ServiceNovember 18, 2013 EDITORIAL CARTOONS
