Brewmaster James Emmerson’s Bio: After working summers in the Organic Chemistry Labs at Eli Lilly and Co., he attended brewing school in 1987. He started his brewing career at Sieben’s Brewery in Chicago, Ill, and was hired to be Brewmaster at Full Sail Brewing Co. in April 1988. He has worked in every job in the brewery from grain to glass including recipe design, brewing beer, fermentation, filtration, and packaging. He designed and supervised all of the breweries expansions. In 1995 designed the current facility and brewing systems, a design that has won the brewery numerous sustainability awards
Farmers Nicole and Brian’s Bio: Florida Sweet Brand Peaches is a family owned and operated peach orchard in South West Florida. With just over 70 acres of peaches, the family farm is large enough to supply retailers and restaurants throughout the state and small enough to maintain exceptional quality. In just 7 years, Florida Sweet Peaches has set the standard for this very young industry. Growing peaches has proven to be quite the challenge for a family with citrus roots however they have chosen to meet the challenge and are optimistic that their hard work will indeed be fruitful.

Guests to the American Adventure Pavilion at Epcot will journey “between the pages” of history as the American Heritage Gallery opens its doors to an art exhibit representing over 400 years of African-American achievement and contribution.
“Re-Discovering America: Family Treasures from the Kinsey Collection,” which opens March 8, draws from an extensive collection of rare art, documents, books and artifacts amassed by philanthropists Bernard and Shirley Kinsey, who share a passion for African-American history.
Their private collection has been displayed throughout the U.S., including in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. Approximately 40 pieces will be on display for Epcot guests at any given time on a rotating basis during the exhibit run.
“We always wanted to extend the reach of the Collection to a larger, more international and diverse audience,” explained Bernard Kinsey. “So we are delighted to be collaborating with Disney to share the stories of our remarkable ancestors.”
Overseeing the collection is the Kinseys’ son, Khalil, whose school-age curiosity inspired his parents to build their collection.
If you’re like me, you’ve enjoyed creating your own art on an Etch A Sketch. Turn the knobs, create a “magic screen”-full of art, then shake it up and start all over again. Never in my wildest dreams, though, could I imagine completing Etch A Sketch drawings like those created by Jane Labowitch.
Jane, a 21-year-old artist in Chicago who is known professionally by the nickname “Princess Etch A Sketch,” began playing with the famous Ohio Art drawing toy at age four. In fact, she says her love of the Etch A Sketch actually has some Disney roots, thanks to a boost from Disney’s animated classics.
“When I was young, soon after ‘Aladdin’ was released on VHS, I used to watch it at my grandma’s house while playing around with my Etch A Sketch,” she remembers. “And when I was a kid, all I could really draw were staircases. But what inspired me to draw more was the scene in ‘Aladdin’ where he has to walk up the long flight of stairs to retrieve the magic lamp. I used to draw that scene all the time. Soon, the staircases started looking more detailed, and the boxy Aladdin became more and more detailed as I practiced.”
In an effort to make driving on Florida’s roadways safer, Walt Disney World Resort today joined a coalition of state and national organizations, including the Florida League of Cities, Florida Sheriffs Association, AAA and the City of Orlando to support legislation to stop motorists from texting while driving.
According to the National Safety Council, each year more than 100,000 crashes happen in the United States because of drivers who are distracted by activities like texting, emailing and sending instant messages. A study by the Virginia Tech Highway Safety Institute found that individuals who send text messages while driving are 23 times more likely to be involved in a crash.
Florida is one of the few states without a distracted driving law. The Florida House and Senate are expected to discuss a measure to prohibit distracted driving during the upcoming legislative session.
As part of an ongoing commitment to safety, Walt Disney World Resort is already among the growing number of companies across Florida that has a distracted driving policy in place.
