Best known as the ac- the museum's Loebenbergcocktails, international food By Richard Ries If you walk into Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer's office and see awood carved alligator, you might naturally assume it was made in Florida. However, you'd be guilty of not examining all the evidence. It is in fact one of his favorite souvenirs from a very different state: the State of Israel. With Obama having an- nounced a Middle East trip to include Israel, his first visit as president, I grew curious about Dyer's own ties to Israel. Sure enough, the mayor of the City Beautiful visited the mayor of the White City, Tel Aviv, in 2011. He met with mayors of OB. AR MYRON N. BLATTNER Myron N. Blattner, of A1- tamonte Springs, died on Monday, March 11; 2013. He was 77 years old. A Jacksonville native, Mr. Blattner was born on April 11, 1935, m the late Sidney and Ann Nabin Blattner. He attended "area schools and the University of Florida. He moved to the Orlando area from Atlanta in 1974, and among other things, was best known as a successful busi- ness broker. He was married to the late Adrienne Blattner, his wife of 40 years, when she passed away in 2007. Mr. Blattner is survived by his son, Marc (Sarah) Blattner of Portland, Ore.; his daugh- ter, Cydnee Blattner (Mark Maslov) of Evanston, Ill.; and three grandchildren.

He said his favorite stops were Bethlehem and the Old City of Jerusalem. "You truly cannot grasp the beauty and meaning of Israel just from pictures," said Dyer. "You have to be there." A lot of Dyer's talks with of- ficials were about city security. "No one understands security like Israel" Dyer said. "No one." Dyer said that he didn't fully understand how tiny Israel was until he traveled around it, and said that its size reinforced, for him, its need to defend itself. "When you have hostile forces right at your border, you have an unequivocal need to defend yourself." Dyer had no advice to offer the president on his upcoming trip. "I'm confident the presi- dentwill surround himself with the best Middle East advisors available," Dyer said. "I trust in that process." Dyer understands the sym- bolism of freedom that Passover stands for. He himself has been to several seder meals as mayor in Orlando, and has attended a number of multicultural services that included aspects of Jewish worship. When asked what he wanted to say most to Orlando's Jewish residents, it was that "Orlando is at its best when it is embrac- ing diversity, tolerance, fairness and equality." Dyer closed our interview by bidding the Central Florida Jewish community a happy and healthy Passover. also survived by his brother, Sheldon of Jacksonville.
