Drop off excess
fruit at St. Luke's
this Saturday
Many homeowners
throughout Florida have cit-
rus trees in their yards, and
much of the fruit is eaten by
the owners and shared with
neighbors. But because the
trees are often prolific bear-
ers, a lot of fruit falls to the
ground, where it rots.
There is an answer to this
dilemma backyard glean-
ing by the. Society of St.
Andrew volunteers with fruit
given to food banks and shel-
ters. In Florida, this harvest-
ing takes place whenever
homeowners give permission
for the volunteers to pick the
fruit.
There are several ways
Central Floridians can parti-
cipate in this endeavor -
they can drop off excess fruit
at St. Luke's United
Methodist Church this Satur-
day, Jan. 22, between 9 a.m.
and 3 p.m. or call for volun-
teers to pick fruit. For volun-
teers, call 407-650-1956 or e-
mail centralfloridacitrus

- School Board picks
attendance zone for
new high school in
Ocoee, adjusts zones
for WOHS and
Olympia and decides
on plan for new
elementary school in
south Winter Garden.

By Mary Anne Swickerath

At the end of four hours of
debate and by a vote of 4-3, the
Orange County School Board
approved the attendance zone
for the new high school under
construction in Ocoee on Tues-
day of last week. The plan, one


offered by School Board Mem-
ber Karen Ardaman, also moves
285 students from Olympia
High to West Orange High, a
move unpopular with the Win-
dermere-area parents who spoke
against it.
Voting for the plan were
Ardaman, Jim Martin, Tim Shea
and Rick Roach. Voting against
it were Joie Cadle, Anne Geiger
and Kat Gordon.
The board also voted 6-1 for
its staff to bring back an ordi-
nance that would propose allow-
ing all the students presently
attending Olympia who live in
the rezoned area to finish their
high school career there. Only
Gordon voted against this mea-
sure.
Speakers in opposition to the


plan were, approximately 30 res-
idents of The Willows, Citrus
Oaks, Windermere Club and
Crescent Lake, who wanted to
keep their students in the
Olympia High zone. Three
speakers from Ocoee, including
Mayor Scott Vandergrift and
City Commissioner Scott Ander-
son, also were against the plan
because Ocoee residents south
of West Colonial Drive would
stay at West Orange High
instead of attending the new
school.
"Please make this a communi-
ty school," asked the mayor.
Ann Walsh, an Ocoee resident
from south of West Colonial,
asked the board not to send that
area's students to the new school
because they are much closer to


West Orange, where they want
to stay. She said her area had
sent a petition with 400 names to
the board supporting this posi-
tion.
The new Ocoee school,
known currently as the West
Orange/Apopka Relief High
School, will draw Ocoee stu-
dents north of West Colonial
Drive, northeast Winter Garden
students, south Apopka students
and west Pine Hills students.
According to information
given out at the meeting from
Sandy Simpson of Pupil Assign-
ment, attending the new school
will be 2,315 students from
WOHS and 435 from Apopka
High to put the student popula-
tion at an estimated 2,750. The
school is expected to be 50 per-


cent white, 34 percent black and
16 percent Hispanic.
The new zoning will put West
Orange at an estimated 2,385
(down from the current enroll-
ment of 4,226), Olympia at an
estimated 3,125 (down from
3,332 and still over capacity)
and Apopka at an estimated
3,630 (down from 3,997 and still
over capacity).
"I am excited that the rezoning
has been approved and that we
can begin the process of building
a true sense of community for
every student within our atten-
dance zone," said Mike Arm-
bruster, relief school principal.
"I am already looking for vol-
unteers in each area to possibly

Windermere kicks off its

traffic-improvement plan


The new streetscape project in
ed, and' the city will cut the
Wednesday, Jan. 26.

downtown Ocoee is complet-
ribbon celebrating that fact


Ocoee sets ribbon-cutting celebration
for its Downtown Streetscape Project


Moon Pies and root beer will
,be on the menu as the city of
Ocoee cuts the ribbon on its
Downtown Streetscape Project
on.Wednesday, Jan. 26, at 2 p.m.
The ribbon-cutting is open to the
public and will take place at the
intersection of McKey Street and
Cumberland Avenue.
The downtown construction
project began in July 2004 after a
year of planning and design and
working with downtown busi-
ness and property owners.
The downtown project was
made possible through an agree-
ment with the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation. State
Rep. Randy Johnson was instru-
mental in facilitating the arrange-
ment between the state and the
city. The project's design and
construction totaled $1,150,000
with $850,000 coming from the
state. The city funded the bal-
ance.
The project includes a com-
plete renovation of McKey
Street from Kissimmee Avenue
to Bluford Avenue. Electric, tele-
phone and cable lines were put
underground. New street lights
were installed, and decorative


pavers replaced concrete side-
walks and on-street parking
places.
Magnolia trees and shumard
oaks now line the street, and
planters were installed to allow
for additional foliage.
Many features, such as bench-,
es and a four-way stop, were
included to give the area a more
pedestrian-friendly, atmosphere.
While the street and sidewalks
were torn up for construction,
improvements were also made to
the water and stormwater sys-
tems to upgrade water lines and
address some drainage problems.'
One interesting feature of the
street reconstruction was incor-
porating some of the original
bricks that paved the downtown
.streets at the turn of the century,
These bricks had been covered
over with asphalt for many years.
Part of the project was to unearth
these bricks and install them irn
the intersections along with
some modern brick pavers.
HHI Inc. is the lead design
consultant for the project, and
Gibbs and Register of Winter
Garden is the construction con-
tractor.

Still boasting the lowest mill-
age rate in Orange County, Win-
dermere is proudly embarking
on a $3 million downtown
improvement plan. The town
financed the project with a loan
from SunTrust Bank, along with
two federal appropriations total-
ing $600,000.
The 900-home community of
2,300 residents has been strug-
gling for more than four years to
find a solution to ever-worsen-
ing traffic problems.
The tiny community's two
main arteries, Main Street and
Sixth Avenue, currently carry
18,000 vehicles a day.
Town officials held a. ground-
breaking ceremony Friday to
kick off the yearlong Main
Street 'Roadway Improvement
project an even more unique
event since it was moved
indoors due to inclement weath-
er. .
.Town Manager Cecilia
Bernier welcomed invited
guests, and Mayor Gary Bruhn
reflected on the 3.5-year plan-
ning process. He emphasized
how important the improve-
ments will be in creating better
traffic flow and pedestrian safe-
ty.
The plan features round-
abouts, or traffic circles, at the
intersections of Sixth and Main
and Fifth and Main to keep traf-
fic moving. New sidewalks and
crosswalks will make travel eas-
ier and safer foi pedestrians, jog-
gers and bicyclists.
Brick paving will be installed
on Main Street from Fourth

"This is one of the most chal-

that our firm has undertaken,"
said Brian Canin, president of
Canin and Associates, the Orlan-

improvement plan.
"Consensus building was a

town residents for their high

and especially member Fred
Pryor for leadership and vision.
At the outset of the project,
Pryor headed the town's.Long-

"A year from now this town
will be swelled with pride," said
Pryor, "and in five years, it will
be even more amazed."
He called Friday's ceremony
the fulfillment of a dream, which
sometimes "seemed like an
impossible dream."

Illness forces Nina Kuhn to leave

principal's post at Oakland Charter

Juan Colon of Ocoee Middle will lead the school


By Amy Quesinberry

A debilitating disease might
have forced Nina Kuhn to retire
from her job as principal of the
2-year-old Oakland 'Avenue
Charter School, but she's deter-
mined it's certainly not going to
get the best of her.
Living by the philosophy that
when one door closes another
opens, Kuhn, a single mother, is
turning this life-threatening set-
back into an opportunity to fin-
ish penning a book for her
daughter.
Kuhn was diagnosed with
amyotrophic lateral sclerosis,
also known as Lou Gehrig's dis-
ease, after accepting the position
as principal at the Oakland
school.


In her first year at the school,
she sometimes felt well enough
to walk unaided. On other days
she used a walker or even a
motorized wheelchair.
As the neuromuscular illness
progressed, Kuhn had to rely
more and more on her walker
and wheelchair. Despite this and
the fact that she had difficulty
speaking, Kuhn still had the
ability to run the school and nur-
ture the respect and admiration
from her students and staff.
The principal's last day of
school was Friday. She handed
out medals and certificates dur-
ing the awards ceremony and
spent the rest of the day saying
good-bye to everyone.
"It's kind of bittersweet," she
said Friday.


"Things will go well, I'm
sure. He's very nice," she said of
her replacement, Juan Colon,
assistant principal at Ocoee Mid-
dle.
Colon will begin his new posi-
tion Monday, Jan. 31.
"OCPS has done a wonderful
job in training me for this next
step," Colon said Tuesday. "Dr.
[Katherine] Clark has been a
great mentor for the last year and
a half at Ocoee Middle School.
I've learned a lot about budget,
technology and working with
low-performance students.
"As far as Oakland Avenue
Charter School goes, Ms. Kuhn
has done a wonderful job there
as well. I'm stepping into some

Winter Garden on its way to allowing alcohol at sidewalk cafes


By Michael Laval

Winter Garden residents may
soon be able to enjoy a glass of
beer or wine while dining on the
city's downtown sidewalks.
The Winter Garden City Com-
mission approved by a vote of 4-
1 the first reading of a proposed
ordinance at last Thursday's
meeting that would allow alco-
holic drinks to be served at the
sidewalk cafes in the downtown
district.
Commissioner Theo Graham
cast the dissenting vote and
expressed his opposition to
allowing adults to consume


alcohol in public,
"We spend money on pro-
grams telling kids not to drink or
do drugs," said Graham. "I think
[serving alcohol outdoors] sets a
bad exainple for our kids."
The proposed ordinance reads
that the city has determined that
serving alcoholic beverages at
sidewalk cafes could help stimu-
late economic activity and
development in the downtown
area. It goes on to state that pass-
ing the ordinance is necessary
and appropriate to advance and
serve the health, safety and gen-
eral welfare of the citizens of
Winter Garden.


"I don't know how you're
saying that the people of Winter
Garden want this," Graham said.'
"It wouldn't improve my health,
safety or welfare."
Assistant City Attorney Lionel
Rubio explained that the ordi-
nance was requested by the
owners of two downtown busi-
nesses, the Plant Street Grille
and J-R's Attic Door.
Mayor Jack Quesinberry sug-
gested amending the proposed
ordinance to specify that alco-
holic drinks consumed at out-
door cafes must be served in
cups or glasses so that there will
be no open containers on the


sidewalks. The other elected
officials agreed with the mayor's
stipulation and moved to include
it in the ordinance.
The commission will make a
final decision on the ordinance
after a public hearing set to take
place at its Feb. 10 meeting.
In other business, the elected
officials:
approved six proposed ordi-
nances that would annex and
issue Small Scale Comprehen-
sive Plan Amendments for three
pieces of land located between
866 and 940 Tildenville School
Road. All three properties are
currently zoned as Orange


County A-1 (Citrus Rural) and
would have their Future Land
Use designations changed from
County to City Low Density
Residential. Second readings
and public hearings will be held
for all six ordinances at the com-
mission's Feb. 10 meeting,
passed an ordinance amend-
ing the city's R-NC Code to
clarify that rooming houses are
allowed only with a special-
exception permit, provided that
the house provides adequate
parking, is compatible with the
surrounding neighborhood and

Card of thanks
We, the extended members of the Jimmy Davis/Wright family, had
the unique opportunity to watch a community join together to support
us during a difficult time. We watched friends coordinate, provide,
deliver and clear three marvelous meals a day. The laundry was done;
no detail was overlooked.
Each day, others arrived to run errands for the family, allowing
Andy, Megan and Pike to spend precious time caring for Jimmy.
These individuals did these things purely from the love and respect
they have for Jimmy and Andy. Their unselfish acts, devotion, com-
mitment and prayers came from their hearts.
As members of this family, we would like to say thank you to each
and every one who contributed. When the world seems unjust, we can
look back on this time and we will know that the world is as it should
be if not just for a moment in time in Winter Garden, Florida.
.The words "thank you" cannot truly express the gratitude we have
for all of your kindness. What a wonderful tribute to Jimmy.


Expressway Authority to
The Orlando-Orange County
Expressway Authority recently
announced its plan to deploy data
collection sensors across the
expressway system. These sensors
will provide Expressway Authority
customers information regarding
traffic incidents and travel times
that customers will be able to use to
plan their daily travels.
The travel times will be generat-
ed by the Expressway Authority
Data Server using information
reported by the data collection sen-
sors. The sensors will read toll
transponders and produce anony-
mous data.
The first phase of the project
includes deploying 108 sensors
throughout the expressway system,
located at interchanges and system
boundaries. The second phase will
install 50 closed-circuit television
cameras along portions of state
roads 408, 417, 528 and 429.
The closed-circuit cameras will
allow the Traffic.Management Cen-
ter to monitor real-time traffic con-
ditions and respond to traffic inci-
dents. These cameras are in addi-
tion to 49 cameras that were
installed in 2004 along the most
traveled portions of state roads 408
and 417, as well as at each mainline
toll plaza, to enable Expressway
Authority staff and tollbooth man-
agers to better manage demand.
"The data collection sensors are a
great way to improve convenience
of the system while maintaining our
customers' privacy," said Allan
Keen, Expressway Authority board
chairman. "We're doing this to pro-
vide our customers a completely
integrated system, which will allow
them to get where they need to go
faster and, in turn, improve the
quality of life for Central Florida
residents."
Traffic data collected by the sen-
sors will be available to Express-
way Authority customers and
media outlets over the Internet and


offer new help for drivers
511, the traffic hotline. Eventually,
message boards will be posted
along the Expressway Authority
system to relay information to com-
muters. The data collection system
will not interfere with E-Pass or
SunPass electronic toll collection.
The Expressway Authority ias
set to have a small portion of the
sensors in place by mid-January,
and the remaining sensors should
be in place by May 1.
"Our goal with this equipment is
to enhance the safety, reliability and
performance of the expressway sys-
tem," said Mike Snyder, Express-
way Authority executive director.
"We focus on providing our cus-
tomers with safer ways to travel and
faster traffic routes."

"He Only Took My Hand"
Last night while I was trying to sleep;
My son's voice I did hear.
I opened my eyes and looked around
But he did not appear.
He said, "Mom you've got to listen,
You've got to understand,
God didn't take me from you, Mom,
He only took my hand.
When I called out in pain that night,
The instant that I died,
He reached down and took my hand,
And pulled me to His side.
He pulled me up and saved me
From the misery and pain.
My body was hurt so badly inside,
I could never be the same.
My search is really over now,
I've found happiness within.
All the answers to my empty dreams
and all that might have been.
I love you so and miss you so,
And I'll always be nearby.
My body's gone forever,
But my spirit will never die!
And so, you must go on now,
Live one day at a time.
Just understand-
God did not take me from you,
He only took my hand."
We love and miss you more each day!
Happy 23rd Birthday, Justin!

Mother,


I can't believe it's been a year
since we lost you. We still see
you and remember every look,
touch, smile and the laughs you
gave. It was so hard near the end
but you hung on and wouldn't
let go until Betty and I said you
could go home to be with Jesus.
You were so peaceful and then
we knew that everything would
be ok.
God needed another angel in
Heaven.

Forever our love,

Oakland Mayor Kathy Stark (left) and Police Chief Tim Driscoll (right) congratulate Officer
Renee Kelley, Reserve Officer Donald Melville and Officer Anthony Haddocks (from left).


Oakland honors its police officers


By Amy Quesinberry

Oakland Police Chief Tim
Driscoll made presentations to
three police officers for their
service to the town in 2004.
Officer Renee Kelley, Reserve
Officer Donald Melville and
Officer Anthony Haddocks were
recognized at the Oakland Town
Commission's Jan. 11 meeting.
Officer Renee Kelley was
named Officer of the Year "for
her hard work, dedication and
consistency in providing ser-
vices throughout the year."
According to the certificate
she received, she "has con-
sciously made improvement in
communicating services to the
community and produced more
traffic, citations than any other
officer," despite frequently
accepting additional assign-
ments.
Kelley "works diligently as
the Reserve Force liaison, assur-
ing training and monthly meet-
ings are held, scheduling special
details and reporting monthly
reserve officer activity to the
police chief."


She is routinely assigned new
recruits, who must work along-
side her and complete specific
training phases before becoming
independent full-time police
officers.
Kelley is also credited with
organizing and presenting a
Stranger Danger program to stu-
dents at Oakland Avenue Char-
ter School.
She received a certificate, a
plaque and a watch depicting
the town logo.
Officer Donald Melville
received a certificate for
Reserve Officer of the Year for
his "continuous dedication and
reliability throughout the year."
The reserve officer "gave a
large portion of his spare time to
the Oakland Police Depart-
ment," according to the certifi-
cate. "During his day off, it
would not be uncommon to find
Officer Melville working an
eight- or 10-hour shift on the
roads of the town of Oakland."
He worked special details,
assisted with special assign-
ments and provided felony traf-
fic stop training to members of


the Reserve Force, and he was
the only reserve officer who
worked all three hurricanes that
hit Central Florida last August
and September.
He received a plaque in addi-
tion to the certificate.
Officer Kelley also made a
presentation to Melville for his
hard work throughout 2004.
Officer Anthony Haddocks
was named Officer of the Quar-
ter for the fourth quarter of the
year for his efforts as a team
player and "for significant
improvements regarding his
quality of work," according to
the certificate he received. Chief
Driscoll said the officer is able
to issue high volumes of cita-
tions using a positive and
friendly approach.
During the fourth quarter,
Haddocks provided assistance
with a Halloween safety pro-
gram at the charter school, was
the department's representative
for the Florida Buckle-Up Seat
Belt Campaign and participated
in a specialized traffic enforce-
ment day organized by the
Orange County Sheriff's Office.


Chamber salutes 3 local residents


The West Orange Chamber of
Commerce will present awards
that will honor long-time West
Orange County residents George
Bailey, Jerry Chicone and Bert
Roper for their outstanding con-
tributions to this community at
the Annual Community Champi-
ons' Gala.
The George Bailey Award was
created in recognition of demon-
strated excellence in fostering
partnerships for the benefit of
the local community.
The Jerry Chicone Award was
created in recognition of estab-
lishing a philanthropic legacy
for enhancing and improving the
community.
The Bert Roper Award was
created in recognition of a cham-
pion who has improved the well-


being and quality of life of the
community.
In addition, the Chamber will
present four Chairman Awards
and eight Community Service
Awards. The Community Ser-
vice Awards were developed to
recognize individuals who have
displayed dedication to the West
Orange community, including
Dr. Phillips, Gotha, MetroWest,
Oakland, Ocoee, unincorporated
Orange County, Windermere
and Winter Garden.
One recipient will be chosen
from each of the named commu-
nities. Nominees will be judged
on services performed from Jan-
uary 2004 to the present. Win-
ners and nominees will be hon-
ored at the Third Annual West
Orange Community Champions'


Gala on Friday, Jan. 28. The
event, hosted by the Chamber,
will be held at the Walt Disney
World Dolphin Resort and is

School rezoning process needs improvement


We all know that redrawing student
attendance zones each time a new
school is built is a painful process. It's
painful for the families affected, and it's
painful for those who have to make the
decisions. But the process needs
improvement to make it more under-
standable to all those affected. The
recent rezoning of West Orange and
Olympia high schools due.to the con-
struction of the new high school in
Ocoee is a perfect case in point.
Parents were often confused about
when the meetings were planned, how
the committees were chosen and how
the decisions were made. Ocoee city
officials had difficulty finding out what
was going on and complained that only
one Ocoee citizen was on any of the
rezoning committees.


There must be a better way.
The good news is that the School
Board heard loud and clear last week
how parents feel about the rezoning
process from those whose children will
be moved from Olympia High to West
Orange High. They felt their neighbor-
hoods came into the mix late in the
game without their notification until
after the plan was tentatively chosen by
the board.
School Board Chairman Tim Shea
sympathized with them and said, "I
agree that the process is flawed."
With a bunch of new schools in the
future plans for West Orange County,
we urge the School Board and Orange
County Public Schools to make this
process more transparent and less
flawed and hopefully less painful.


School board is forced to make tough decisions


Last week the Orange County School
Board made a tough decision after taking
a lot of heat from some affected citizens
in rezoning approximately 280 students
from Olympia to West Orange. It's not
easy to be told that your school zoning is
being changed, especially if you're
happy with the school zone you're in or
even purchased your home because of
that school assignment.
But the reality is, as the area changes,
so do the school zones. School Board
Member Karen Ardaman was criticized,
for suggesting an option that was differ-
ent from the staff recommendation. She
stood strong in the face of a great deal of
criticism, and we believe that the board
made the right decision. Ardaman did her
homework and made a recommendation
that she believed strongly in, even though
she knew she couldn't please everyone.
She didn't just rubber-stamp the staff rec-
ommendation because she felt there was
- a better solution. And, after all, isn't that
what we elected her to do?
But Olympia's problems are not over.
Last week's rezoning of students from
Olympia to West Orange is just the tip of
the iceberg. The School Board will be
faced with the same tough, decisions
about Olympia for years to come. Six
years ago, knowing that the best location


for the Dr. Phillips/West Orange relief
school was closer to MetroWest, the
School Board caved in and made the
wrong decision.
We are now living with former Orlando
Mayor Glenda Hood's legacy after she
nixed a plan to sell the School Board
property at Turkey Lake Park. That lega-
cy is also shared with the 1998 Orange
County School Board after its members
placed Olympia in such a poor location.
Much of the pressure on Olympia is
coming from the growth of apartments in
MetroWest, a part of the city of Orlando,
but Hood didn't want to place "the bur-
den of unincorporated growth on the
shoulders of Orlando residents." Now
this misplaced school site is becoming a
burden on everyone, including Orlando
residents.
Olympia, unable by law to use porta-
bles, has students taking classes in hall-
ways, divided classrooms, the auditori-
um, the gymnasium lobby and other cre-
ative spaces. And according to Ardaman,
"There will not ever be an Olympia relief
school."
School Board Chairman Tim Shea said,
"We owe it to that school to reduce that
population." Maybe that's why board
member Jim Martin asked, "Have we
relieved Olympia enough?"


Dear Editor


Winter Garden residents beware! There is a
power play in progress to take over the city's gov-
ernment (commissioners) by the attempted recall
of Bill Thompson and the electing of three com-
missioners in the upcoming March 3 election. The
power play is being hidden behind the Trailer City
issue and the recall attempt. A small group of men
are attempting to gain control of votes in the City
Commission to further their own personal political
agendas. They don't care about Trailer City or Bill
Thompson; they are using these emotional issues


Homeowners warned
Charles H. Bronson, Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner, is warning
homeowners that this is the time of year when ter-
mite begin to leave their colonies to search for
new nesting sites. Many homeowners discover
they have a termite problem when they find ter-
mite swarmers (winged black insects about 1/4
inch long).
Termites can cause consumers to lose their
largest economic asset their homes and are
Responsible for more than $700 million in costs to
consumers in Florida each year for damage and
control costs. Termites are a fact of life in Florida,
and people need to actively protect their homes by
using a licensed professional pest control compa-
ny to provide termite protection services.
"This is a good time of year for consumers to
check their contracts with licensed pest control
companies to make sure they are current," Bron-
son said. Anyone who has questions about their
pest control contract or company can call us at 1-
800-HELPFLA. Considering the cost of a house,
it's frightening to think that about half the home-
owners in Florida have not taken steps to protect
this investment from these damaging insects."
People who do not have a current termite pro-
tection contract are urged to contact at least three


to hide their personal agendas. Trailer City is not
scheduled to close, and Bill Thompson did not vio-
late the Sunshine Law! These men don't have Win-
ter Garden's best interest in mind; their only inter-
ests are the political power of the commission seats
and a city with money to spend. I implore you to
not be fooled by the emotional issues and take a
close look at what is really happening. Join with
me and let's ensure our great city doesn't fall into
the hands of outside politicians.

Proud Native


termite season is here
pest control companies and request written esti-
mates and a copy of the contract they offer. Pest
control companies are required by law to obtain a
signed contract prior to treating a home.
The two main types of termites that affect Flori-
da consumers are subterranean termites, which
live in soil and attack structures from the ground
up, and drywood termites, which can live in iso-
lated pieces of wood in a structure such as attic
rafters and can go undetected until they cause
extensive damage. Licensed pest management
professionals have the expertise to inspect and
treat for infestations of these termites and provide
protective measures for homeowners.
Steps that consumers can take to protect their
homes from this destructive pest:
Remove wood piles and other cellulose
sources from under and next to their homes.
Have an annual inspection of their homes by
a licensed professional pest control company.
Renew their termite protection contract annu-
ally.
Direct water sources, such as air conditioner
drip lines and roof downspouts, away from the
structure foundation.
When purchasing homes, carefully check the
termite protection history of the home.

At Ocoee dollar store, customers

get more than Just-A-Buck's worth


By Michael Laval

Ocoee is the new home of the
: first Just-A-Buck franchise in
Florida.
After years of working in the
retail management industry,
Florida native Marlin Bexley
returned home eight years ago
and decided he was tired of mak-
ing money for other people and
S wanted to go into business for
himself. Bexley successfully
owned a chain restaurant fran-
chise in the Central Florida area,
but eventually sold it off and
decided to return to retail.
Bexley said he became inter-
ested in the rapidly growing dol-
lar store industry and began
researching the various fran-
chise opportunities available.
When he discovered Just-A-
Buck, which is based in Goshen,
N.Y., and has 50 stores mostly
located in the New York and
New England area, Bexley trav-
eled to upstate New York to
meet the store's founders.
"I felt the most comfortable
with them and their company,"
he said. "They were the most
honest and most professional."
Bexley bought his Just-A-
Buck franchise nearly a year
ago, spent several months study-
ing the dollar store business and
opened Florida's first Just-A-
Buck Nov. 20 in Ocoee within
the Staples shopping center on
the comer of West Colonial
Drive and Good Homes Road.
Just-A-Buck, Bexley said, has
an advantage over most dollar
stores because of the higher
quality of its products. Bexley
said he sells products that are
unique to a dollar store, such as
cell phone accessories and items
that are usually found at larger
retail stores. While maintaining
a high-quality inventory, Bexley


Arlington Homes
acquires 50 home
sites in Gotha
Arlington Homes, a Winter
S Park-based luxury homebuilder,
has acquired 50 home sites on
Hempell Road in Gotha and
plans to start development of a
luxury community there.
Fred Schaub, president of
Arlington Homes, said develop-
ment will start in March. By
June, Arlington will start con-
struction on one model home,
and four spec homes priced from
the $750s. Schaub said the
model home, a five-bedroom,
five-bath two-story home, will
offer 4,600 square feet of living
space.











REAL
ESTATE
with
Libby
Tomyn
Central Florida Native
NEW TOWNHOMES ARE
BIGGER AND BETTER
Townhouses and condominiums were
originally developed as smaller, less
expensive alternatives to single-family
detached homes.' The condo/townhouse
was specially well suited to urban apd
suburban neighborhoods where shortage
of land forced developers to build on rel-
atively small lots. But as time passed and
its popularity grew, the townhouse start-
ed to push the boundaries of the attached
home concept
Ten years ago, the typical condo or
townhouse had two bedrooms, one and a
half bathrooms and a single car garage
(or simply a parking space). In 2001,
more than twice as many townhouses
had two-car garages than one-car
garages. Square footage has also
increased, and the majority of townhous-
es sold have three or four bedrooms and
two and a half bathrooms. Luxury'town-
houses in resort destinations offer three
story floor plans, vaulted ceilings, multi-
ple fireplaces, designer kitchens,
whirlpools spas or Jacuzzi tubs, expand-
ed living rooms, master suites with pri-
vate balconies and beautiful beach,
mountain or golf course views.
Many property managers list better
townhouses as vacation rental proper-
ties. Because they are increasingly larg-
er and more luxurious, low mainte-
nance toWnhomes provide an attractive
alternative to single-family detached
residential living.

said, he keeps his prices set at a
dollar.
"We are a true dollar store," he
said. "There are many stores that
call themselves dollar stores, but
once you go inside, you're hard-
pressed to find something for
just a buck."
Some products, Bexley said,
sell for less than a buck, but
nothing ever exceeds a dollar.
Customers, he said, enjoy


Just-A-Buck's atmosphere. The
store is carpeted, has good light-
ing and plays old rock 'n' roll
music from the 1950s. An order-
ly layout of products and wide
aisles, Bexley said, make it easy
for shoppers to find what they
want.
Just-A-Buck is open Monday
through Saturday from 9 a.m. to
9 p.m. and on Sunday from 10
a.m. to 7 p.m.

midseason varieties, which
includes 2.5 million boxes of
navels, saw a decrease of two
million, to 84 million boxes, and

Winter Garden


If these walls could talk




cyclone ripped from old school
M"i


By Amy Quesinberry


John and Ann Harrell's for-
mer home in Winter Garden was
built using wood discarded after
a 1932 cyclone damaged the top
floor of the old Oakland-Winter
Garden School in Tildenville.
The home at 200 N. Dillard
St. is still standing today, par-
tially hidden behind decades-
old trees and shrub. Mary
Farnsworth has lived there for
many years.
The Harrells, who owned the
Winter Garden Caf6 at 15 S.
Main St. for 12 years, rented an
apartment in Winter Garden
then later a house from 1933-37.
But they had "been dreaming of
and discussing a house of our
own," Ann said in the second
installment of her life story,
which is filed at the Winter Gar-
den History Center.
While John was "shooting the
breeze" one afternoon with bar-
bershop owner A.D. Mims,
three of his barbers and the cus-
tomers, he learned of three lots
that were going to be for sale
and were "very desirable, as
they are so near the caf6," she
quoted him as saying.
The Harrells were interested
and took a walk to inspect the
pieces of property near Newell
Street.
"After looking, talking and
much praying," Ann said, "we
decided to talk to older and
much more knowledgeable peo-
ple than we were. The three lots
were previously owned by Mr.
Oscar Roper before the city had



History Center
gathering details
on W.G. homes
Rod Reeves, director of
the Winter Garden Histo-
ry Center, is collecting
information, stories and
photographs of homes in
the city to keep on file at
the center. He is looking
for details such as the
address, who built it and
when, the architectural
style, who has lived there,
what was there before the
house was built and what
makes it unique plus
anecdotes about the
homes and the people
who grew up in them.
For more information
on this project, call
Reeves at the History
Center in downtown Win-
ter Garden at 407-656-

them."
At this time, there was only
one other house on North Dil-
lard, and that belonged to Her-
bert Pounds. The land from
Newell to Lake Apopka was
occupied instead by vegetable
crops.
"Though Winter Garden was
small, we had friends in all
trades of work, and they did it
all," Ann wrote.
The house was built in 1938
of heart pine lumber bought
from D. "Shorty" Fleming and a
Mr. Gaderburg. The pair had
purchased the lumber, which
was salvaged from the Oakland-
Winter Garden School follow-
ing the tornado.
"Mr. Charlie Gregory planned
and designed it. He supervised
all the construction... .Raymond
Dickson was a New Jersey
plumber who had done the
plumbing on the West Orange
Hotel in 1929. He did our
plumbing and had gone into the
plumbing supply business by
that time, and, therefore, we
could buy the plumbing bath-
room and kitchen fixtures from
him.
4 "Winter Garden's mayor at
that time was George Walker,
and he and his wife, Mattie,
were good friends of ours, so
they took us to Tampa to select
all the electrical supplies, as he
,had done all the wiring.
"Now wewere ready to paint,
as all tile work was fin-
ished....The painting, was done
by Joe Milton, a local and most
capable painter."
With the house taking shape,
Ann was ready to make the inte-
rior feel like a home. She need-
ed draperies, and blinds to
accomplish this.
John made a deal with her. At

their caf6, all the pennies in the
cash register at the end of each
day were Ann's to save and put
toward her window treatments.
There were quite a few break-
fast regulars at the caf6. Once
the deliverers from the three
local dairies, the carriers from
the three area newspapers and
the suppliers from the three
local bread companies caught
wind of the deal, the nine men
would return after their day's
run and sell Ann all the pennies


they had collected.
It wasn't long before Ann had
all the pennies she needed.
SAnd it wasn't long before Ann
had her blinds and draperies.
Some time later, a picture of
the Harrells' home was featured
in a magazine that focused on
enjoyable living in Orange
County.
In 1948, the Harrells had a
home built on Lake Butler.
Ann still lives there today.
John died in 1996.

house to the Winter Garden History Center.



St. Paul AME starts tutoring by phone


St. Paul AME Church in
Winter Garden has started a
tutoring program by telephone.
Pastor Larnee Williams, presi-
dent and founder of Five
Smooth Stones Youth Inc., has
named Clara S. Farmer as his
ambassador of education. Over
the telephone, she can help
with college prep, FCAT and
GED.
She started tutoring at church
last year but wanted to reach
out to more people. During her
tutoring sessions over the
phone, she found that' it was
successful because the adults
and children listened and fol-
lowed instructions.
"Our goal is to reach all chil-
dren and adults who are in
need, but especially our under-
privileged who can't afford the
prices of tutoring," said Pastor
Williams.
Farmer graduated from
Crooms High School in San-


ford, Seminole Junior College
Sand the University of Central
Florida (then FTU). She has
taught 16 years in the public
school system, including at
Jones High; Lakeview, Carver
and Teague middle schools;
and through a homebound pro-
gram. She also taught at Valen-
cia Community College.
Anyone having problems
with their homework can call
407-299-5265 .or toll-free at
877-299-5265 from 5-9 p.m.
Monday through Friday.
Farmer is also available at the
church on Saturdays from 10
a.m. to 6 p.m. for those needing
personal instruction.
The church is at 330 Center
St.
Farmer said she will offer
tutoring in other subjects later
on.
The church is a 5013 orga-
nization and will accept dona-
tions for this tutoring program.

"Throughout the six-day con-
ference, Aldridge will enjoy the

historical significance."

Investment expert speaks to Rotarians


Windermere Rotarians had
an' opportunity last week to
hear one of America's most
respected voices on financial
matters.
James W. (Jim) Brinkley
heads a firm with more than
5,000 employees. Headquar-
tered in Baltimore, Md., Legg
Mason has more than 140
offices in the United States.
The one on Sand Lake Road in


Southwest Orange County, is
where Rotarian Rich Carbone
goes to work.
Brinkley is a fascinating
speaker with fresh ideas and

stressed several key points .in
his remarks. They include:
Mood and emotion create
opportunity. Buy on the oppor-
tunity, not on the mood or emo-


tion.
You have heard of the Gold-
en Rule. This is the Platinum
Rule "treat others as they
expect to be treated."
Analyzing the stock market
should be like looking through
the "windshield" rather than the
"rear view mirror.

Sculpture exhibit
at Millenia Galley
Millenia Gallery is currently
showing an exhibit titled Sculp-
tors Who Paint featuring works
by Chihuly, Kaneko, Libensky
and Sorenson. Dale Chihuly is a
leader in the creation of fine art
glass, and Jun Kaneko is known
for gigantic ceramic sculptures.
Stanislav Libensky is an artist
who makes demands on thick
glass, which is his fragile yet
robust medium for sculpture," and
Barbara Sorenson is a sculptor in
ceramic and bronze.
The gallery will open a new
exhibit, Ceramic Sculpture of a
Very Large Scale: the sculptures
of Jun Kaneko, Feb. 4 through
March 1.
Kaneko was bor in Nagoya,
Japan in 1942. He studied paint-
ing during his high school years
and came to the United States in
1963 to continue those studies.
At the Chouinard Institute of
Art, his focus turned to sculptur-
al ceramics. He eventually stud-
ied with Fred Marer, Peter
Voulkos, Paul Soldner and Jerry
Rothman.
In the following decade,
Kaneko taught at several leading
art colleges, including Scripps
College, Cranbrook Academy
and the Rhode Island School of

Phung graduates from
U.S. Coast Guard
training center
Coast Guard Seaman Chan P.
Phung, a 1996 graduate of Dr.
Phillips High School, recently
graduated from the U.S. Coast
Guard Recruit Training Center in
Cape May, N.J.
During the eight-week training
program, Phung completed a
vigorous training curriculum
consisting of academics and
practical instruction on water
safety and survival, military cus-
toms and courtesies, seamanship
skills, first aid, firefighting and
marksmanship. A major empha-
sis is also placed on physical fit-
ness, health and wellness.
Phung and other recruits also
received instruction on the Coast
Guard's core values honor,
respect and devotion to duty -
and how to apply them in their
military performance and per-
sonal conduct. Phung will join
36,000 other men and women
who comprise the Coast Guard's
force.
He also graduated in 2001
from the University of Central
Florida with a Bachelor of Sci-
ence degree.


Literacy volunteers
needed for Reach Out
and Read program
Do you love to read? Do you
love children? Do you have.one
or two hours a week to spare?
If so, here's a perfect spot for
you. The Adult Literacy League
needs volunteers to read to chil-
dren who are waiting to see the
doctor in selected area medical
centers. There are opportunities
in Winter Garden and Apopka
and in two centers in downtown
Orlando.
Reach Out and Read is a
nationwide program to encour-
age parents to read to their chil-
Sdren and to get more books into
the home. When a parent brings
a preschool child to visit a pedi-
atrician, he or she receives
counseling in reading and infor-
mation on how to read to a
child. In addition, the child is
given a free book to take home.
An important component of
this program is the volunteers
who read to the children while
they are waiting to see the doc-
tor. Some children are seldom
or never read to at home.
A volunteer is able to give this
experience to children and to
share the joy of reading with
them. At the same time, parents
can learn by example how to
read to their children at home
and they can see what a reward-
ing, enriching experience read-
ing is. A volunteer can also offer
literacy resources (information
on library services, GED or
English classes, etc.) to the par-
ents.
For more information on
becoming literacy volunteer,
call Sherry Clark at the Adult
Literacy League at 407-422-
1540.

Planning a family vacation can have its surprises


Gene Murphy, a longtime
Windermere resident now living
in Wesmere, wanted to plan a
special vacation with his entire
family.
Last year, he booked passage
for 21 children, grandchil-
dren and great-grandchildren -
on a Disney cruise, and they
were set to sail earlier this
month. One little glitch sur-
faced. The cruise ship would not
allow a passenger who was
expecting a baby within two
months, and a granddaughter,
Dana Walsh, was expecting in
February. It was a big disap-
pointment to everyone. But
Gene, who is 88 years old, is not
a man to be discouraged or

21-strong, on Jan. 6. But the
plans changed again when the
baby decided to come early.
Dana got off her flight from her
home in Colorado and went to
Arnold Palmer Hospital instead
of Jamaica. She gave birth to a
premature 31/2-pound baby girl
with some worrisome problems,
but the good news is that every-
thing now seems to be going
well.
The bad news was that nine
members of the group didn't get
to go to Jamaica Gene's son
and daughter-in-law, Dennis and
Doris Murphy; their daughter
and son-in-law, Dana and Mike
Walsh; and the five Walsh chil-
dren (six, if you count the new
arrival).
But 12 family members made
the best of things and went on
with the vacation anyway. They
included Gene's daughter and
son-in-law, Marlene and Dr. Tim
Ablett of Wisconsin and their.


two daughters; and the children
and grandchildren of Gene's late
daughter, Lynn Hubert of
Atlanta.
The new baby is still at Arnold
Palmer Hospital, and Dana is
staying in the Ronald McDonald
House. Mike has returned to
Colorado with the other chil-
dren, along with two people who
had flown in to help with the
children.


Surprise birthday party
Lois Dennis of Winter Garden was astonished Saturday night when she arrived at the Winder-
mere Country Club to celebrate (she thought) her daughter and son-in-law's wedding anniver-
sary and found the main dining room full of her longtime friends. They had gathered to honor
Lois on the occasion of her 80th birthday. It was a lively evening, and she loved every minute
of it. In addition to a delicious dinner, guests were treated to a this-is-your-life slide show in
which many of them saw photos of themselves on trips and escapades with Lois. Several of her
grandchildren gave heartwarming testimonies of how much 'B'ma' had meant to them. The chil-
dren of Jacque and Steve Dunegan, Darleen and Thomas Sapp and the late Darol Dennis, pre-
sented her with a plague that reads:'Your will has guided us, Your speeches inspired us, and
With your love bonded us.' From left are: Dennis Dunegan, Alex Dunegan, Darol Ray Dennis
Jr., Darol Bouton, Joshua Sapp, Jennifer Bouton (Darol's daughter) and Shaun Sapp. Not pre-
sent: Patrick Sapp and Andy Dennis.

Rezoning
open their home for small
community meetings."
He asks anyone interested
in hosting a cottage meeting
to contact his office at 407-
905-2026.
"We will have a wonderful
cultural mix, socio-economic
mix and racial mix," said
Armbruster. "Our theme of
'unity' will begin from day
one to make sure that each
and every child feels like this
is their school."
The Windermere-area par-
ents criticized Ardaman and


(Continued from front page)


the zoning process for coming
up with a plan different from
the OCPS staff's plan at what
they termed the "11th hour" at
the Dec. 6, 2004, work ses-
sion and without giving them
enough time to voice their
opposition or concerns.
Michael Feldman of The
Willows said that choosing
the new plan at that workshop
as the one advertised was
"patently irresponsible and
unfair."
Other residents said that
even though Olympia cannot


have portables, a legal part of
the original plan for the
school, there is room for per-
manent modular buildings.
Ardaman adamantly
defended her plan. She said
she saw problems with the
staff's recommendation and
felt it was her responsibility to
make it the best plan possible.
"When the process began,"
she said, "I didn't think
Olympia would be affected."
But as she diligently looked
at the proposed plans and
studied them she said it


became clear to her that
Olympia needed relief and
that was not being accom-
plished.
"I looked at the feeder pat-
tern very carefully," she said,
and she felt shW improved
upon how the Gotha Middle
School students were brought
into high school.
Her goal, she said, was not
to do what was easy to avoid
controversy but what was
"best and fair."
At Olympia, classrooms
have been subdivided for two
classes. Classes are being
held in the auditorium and
lobbies. Drafting rooms can't
be used for their intended pur-


pose. Traffic is a big
headache.
"It is absolutely necessary
to do something for this
school,' said Ardaman.
"There will not ever be an
Olympia relief school," but
there will be for West Orange
and Apopka high schools.
At the other end of the
rezoning spectrum, the adver-
tised rezoning Plan B for the
Tildenville/Lake Whitney
Relief Elementary School
passed without anyone from
the public wishing to speak
and in a quick and unanimous
vote by the School Board.
This plan will keep students
from crossing State Road 50


to attend Tildenville Elemen-
tary. Going to the new school
located at 15300 Stoneybrook
West Parkway in Winter Gar-
den will be 426 students from
Tildenville (except for those
students who opt to stay in the
Dual Language Program
there) and 180 students from
Lake Whitney Elementary.
This will give Tildenville an
estimated enrollment of 554
and Lake Whitney an estimat-
ed enrollment of 607.
Ardaman also announced
that Tildenville's Dual Lan-
guage Program will be a mag-
net in the future and "avail-
able to students throughout
West Orange County."

Construction underway for new childcare option in Winter Garden


By Kathy Aber

"Providing safe, quality and
loving childcare for all children of
working parents" is the goal of.the
new Children's Lighthouse pro-
ject at People of Faith Lutheran
Church in Winter Garden.
The West Orange community
will have a new childcare option
beginning Aug. 1, fulfilling a
seven-year dream for Pastor
Johan Bergh and his congrega-
tion.
Bergh has served this congrega-
tion, which is a member of the
Evangelical Lutheran Church in
America, for 20 years.
His ministry started when the
church was located on Silver Star
Road across the street from Evans
High School and continued
through the transition of selling
that property in 1997 and buying
new land on the corer of Warrior


Road, next door to the West
Orange High Ninth-grade Center
and the West Orange YMCA.
For the past seven years, the
congregation has held services at
Lake Whitney Elementary
School. On Sunday, Jan. 4, People
of Faith broke ground on its first
permanent building in West
Orange County a $1.5 million
project that includes a childcare
facility, preschool and gathering
center for worship.
The 10,000-square-foot build-
ing will house childcare class-
rooms for 200 children, as well as
a 3,000-square-foot center for
worship and other ministry activi-
ties. The facility is located on two
acres of the church's nine-acre
site at 228 Windermere Road.
Bergh told The West Orange
Times that his congregation had
been struggling with the concept
of building a sanctuary first and


then adding a childcare facility
later.
Since moving from Pine Hills
to Winter Garden, the congrega-
tion has been focused on serving
communityneeds and looked for
the best way to serve the commu-
nity.
The pastor said the research
showed that "there was a huge
need for childcare, a child-devel-
opment center and a preschool"
and that many West Orange-area
parents are interested in a faith-
based program for their children.
The pastor believes that the Chil-
dren's Lighthouse of People of
Faith will serve the community
well.
About 18 months ago, the con-
gregation decided to move for-
ward with the childcare project
and connected with Children's
Lighthouse in Fort Worth, Texas,
and worked out a franchise agree-


People of Faith Lutheran Church in Winter Garden held a ground-breaking ceremony Jan. 4 for
a new childcare facility called Children's Lighthouse. Pictured at the event (I-r) are the Rev.
Robert Schaefer, assistant to the bishop of the Florida Bahamas Synod of the Evangelical
Lutheran Church in America; John Morris, a member of the congregation's Lighthouse planning
team; Winter Garden Mayor Jack Quesinberry; Fritz Depenthal, POF Building Committee chair-
man; Tom Hagen, president of the congregation; Lee Corcoran of Corcoran Construction Inc.;
Scott McBride of Colonial Bank; and the Rev. Johan Bergh, pastor of People of Faith.


ment.
"The match was marvelous,"
said Bergh. The local congrega-
tion will own and operate the
facility as a separate entity, and
Children's Lighthouse will pro-
vide leadership, training and a
faith-oriented curriculum. The
company also shared its facility
design, and People of Faith made
some modifications to fit its
needs.
The Rev. Bergh said he has
always hoped the congregation
would provide a "seven-day-a-
week ministry." He called the
Children's Lighthouse a "place of
grace" for families in the commu-
nity "a place that will offer
safety, security and quality educa-
tion," said Bergh, "where their
kids are loved and cared for."
Bergh said the main goal of the
Children's Lighthouse is to form a
partnership with local parents to
build and nurture a strong family
unit to cope with life's daily pres-
sures.
The Lighthouse will have child-
care for infants beginning at 6
weeks of age, in addition to a
preschool for 3- and 4-year-olds
and afterschool care for children
through third grade. The church is
in the process of hiring a full-time
director, who will receive training
at the Children's Lighthouse
headquarters in Texas.
The church has its building per-
mit and approval from the city of
Winter Garden and has approvals
pending with the St. Johns River
Water Management District.
Corcoran Construction in
Longwood, the contractor that
completed the new sanctuary at
St. Pauls Presbyterian Church in
Ocoee, was selected to construct
the building, and Colonial Bank is
providing the financing. At the
present time, the church has its
staff offices in temporary facilities
at the construction site and is
compiling an interest list of per-
spective families and students
until registration formally begins.
Until the new building is com-

Above is an artist's rendering of the new Children's Lighthouse
childcare and preschool facility being built by People of Faith
Church. The 10,000-square-foot building will be located at 228
Windermere Road in Winter Garden and accommodate class-
room space for 200 children when it opens Aug. 1. The building
will also have a gathering center for congregational worship
and other activities. The map, below, shows the building site,
which is also the location of the church's temporary offices.


plete, the church will continue to
hold services at Lake Whitney
Elementary School.
Each Sunday there is a tradi-
tional service at 8:30 a.m. and a
praise and worship service at
10:45 a.m. Between services, the
congregation has a gathering time
at 9:30 that includes Jesus. Rocks,
a Christian education program for


children in preschool through fifth
grade, as well as Bible study pro-
grams for middle and high school
students and adults.
Pastor Bergh and his wife,
Janet, a teacher at Ocoee Middle
School, live in Ocoee. For more

JENNY JOLINSKI


USA Tennis Florida
names Jenny Jolinski
regional director'
Jenny Jolinski, who has been
instrumental in the development
of adult and youth tennis pro-
grams in Central Florida for the
past 10 years for the United States
Tennis Association (USTA), has
been named regional director for
Region 4 for USA Tennis Florida.
She will be responsible for pro-
moting the programs and leagues
of USA Tennis Florida through-
out a seven-county market that
includes Orange, Seminole,
Osceola, Lake, Brevard, Volusia
and Flagler counties, according to
Doug Booth. He is the executive
director for the Daytona Beach-
based organization.
As regional director, Jolinski
will oversee a seven-member
team that includes a representa-
tive from each of the counties in
Region 4. The new regional
alignment was prompted by USA
Tennis Florida's desire to parallel
the governing units of the state,
according to Booth.
He said, "We believe this grass
roots approach gives us the best
opportunity to meet the tennis
needs at the county level, whether
it's courts, school programs or the
like."
A planning meeting is set for
Feb. 20 from 1-4 p.m. at the Uni-
versity of Central Florida. The
meeting will include tennis lead-
ers in the region's'counties, and
the purpose will be to plan goals
and objectives for 2005.
"We are still feeling our way,"
said Jolinski. "This is a new rhode
of governance, and we're excited
by the prospects."

Golf


By Jon Decker,
Grand Cypress Academy
of Golf, head instructor

Golf is a game of opposites.
If one swings the club left, the
ball will tend to curve right.
Swing the club to the right,
and the ball will tend to curve
left. Swing the club head
down, and the ball will fly up
in the air; and if, the club
swings upward on the ball, it
will skid along the ground.
These opposites are part of
why the game is so difficult -
the ball does the opposite of
what you'd expect.
The difficulty also applies
to the short game. One of the
most important aspects of the
short game is controlling the
height of the shot. If we can
control how high we hit the
shot, then we can control how
far the ball rolls. The higher
the shot, the less the ball will
roll. The lower the shot the
more the ball will roll.
Remember the simple
phrase when setting up to your
pitch and run, and pitch shots
"high to low" and "low to
high." This phrase is important
in setting your posture before
hitting the shot.
The high-to-low setup
means the lower body is very
high. Set up closer to the ball


Victoria Hills invites
Daytona race fans to
play golf in DeLand
Victoria Hills Golf Club in
DeLand invites area race fans to
plan a golf outing to the Ron
Garl-designed course as part of
their Daytona 500 itinerary.
The course is the centerpiece
of the master-planned Victoria
Park community in DeLand
developed by St. Joe.
Area resident and PGA Tour
star Chris DiMarco, who holds
the course record of 65 at Victo-
ria Hills, said shortly after the
course opened in 2002 that the
putting surfaces are as good as
those he encounters at many
PGA sites.
DiMarco isn't alone in
bestowing high praise upon the
course. Travel and Leisure.Golf
Magazine recently rated Victoria
Hills as the second-best new
course built since 2000 in Flori-
da. And Victoria Hills was previ-
ously honored as a best-of-new
course by Golf and Golf Digest
magazines.
"It doesn't surprise us that Vic-
toria Hills Golf Club continues
to garner the highest honors from
some of golf's most prestigious
publications, but it does make us
very proud," said Ed Hill, presi-
dent of St. Joe's community
development division for Central
Florida. "We hope our reputation
with avid golfers inspires more
people to visit and enjoy our
course."
The 18-hole course is set amid
pristine lakes and a canopy of
live oaks and tall pines and its
topsy-turvy terrain sports more
than 50 feet of elevation change,
along with the designer's free-
form waste areas and steep-face
bunkers. The net result, said
Garl, is "a deft variety of chal-
lenges that require not only a
capable swing but a supple
mind."
Some of college golf's best
players canattest that the course
challenges. Victoria Hills hosted
the NCAA Division I Champi-
onships for men's golf last May
and is home to Stetson Universi-
ty's golf team.
The course is 30 minutes from
Daytona Beach and only one
mile off Interstate 4. For more
information, call 386-738-6000
or go to http://joetowns.com/vic-
toriapark/golf.asp.

knee flex. This setup will pro-
duce a lower ball flight, which
will make the ball roll. No
matter what club is used the
ball flight will be low with this

shot works best when there is
something to go over, such as
a bunker or elevated green.
.It is critical to use the high-
to-low setup or the low-to-
high setup in the practice
swings. I want all my students
to define the shot in their mind
before hitting the shot. By
doing this setup in the practice
swing, it is much easier to gain
a fell or to visualize the shot.

Well, the time we have been
waiting for these past few
months is finally here. With the
rezoning complete, and our
boundary lines drawn, we can
begin building a true sense of
community. If you are wonder-
ing whether or not you have
been moved, you can view the
approved map at the West
Orange High School Web page
located at: http://www.westor-
angehigh.ocps.net/. There is a
moving banner near the top of
the Web page. When the word
"Rezoning" comes across, just
click on it, then go to the blue
link that says "alternative map,"
and that will give you the relief
school boundaries.
This week our current office
staff and I rode the entire zone.
It was exciting to see all the
areas that will be coming togeth-
er to make our school an educa-
tional oasis for students. From
the heart of Ocoee, north of
Highway 50, to the southern end
of Apopka, to the western end of
Pine Hills to the northeastern
end of Winter Garden, we are
truly going to be a representative
school. We will have a wonder-
ful cultural mix, socio-economic
mix and racial mix. Our theme
of "unity" will begin from day
one to make sure that each and
every child feels like this is their
school.
I also had a wonderful oppor-
tunity to speak with the Ocoee
Education Commission this past
week and want to thank Ryan
Colbert and the entire commis-
sion for the opportunity to share
the vision for the new school. I
am looking forward to their sup-
port and encouragement as we
truly build a school for every
child.
One of the goals that we will
have as a school will be to
involve our community, and we
are beginning that process by
going out to visit with volunteers
who are willing to open their


homes for small community
gatherings that we call cottage
meetings. We already have some
volunteers and are beginning to
schedule meetings. If you are
interested in hosting a meeting,
please call the office at 407-905-
2026 to schedule a time.
Now it gives me great plea-
sure to welcome two new mem-
bers to our current full-time
staff. Ginger Klega is joining us
as our media specialist. She
graduated from Kutztown Uni-
versity with a degree in library
science and Temple University
with a master's in educational
media. She has also completed
the course work in her doctoral
program at Rutgers with a major
in library communication -and
information technology and is a
Nationally Board Certified
Teacher.
She has been a media special-
ist in four states and has most
recently served as a media spe-
cialist at West Orange High
School for the past 14.5 years
with the last 10.5 years spent
opening and growing, the media
center at the Ninth-Grade Cen-
ter. What impressed me most
about her is her commitment to
the child and to creating relation-
ships with students that excite


them about learning.
We also welcome on board
this week our technology sup-
port representative, Bob Shrader.
Bob graduated from WOHS in
1985 and has been in the tech-
nology field for 20 years. I had
the good fortune of hiring him at
WOHS four years ago; and he,
along with a wonderful team of
professionals, helped bring
WOHS into the 21st century. His
experience and knowledge will
be critical to meeting the needs
of our students as they prepare
for their future in the Informa-
tion Age. Even as I write this, he
is building our own Web site that
will carry information about our
school and be updated regularly.
As always, please feel free to
contact me at 407-905-2023 or
by e-mail at armbrum@ocps.net
if I can answer any questions
you may have about our commu-
nity school.
Just a reminder, please do not
enter the construction zone,
while the school is being built-it
is trespassing. However, feel free
to stop by Portable P at Westside
Tech on Story Road in Winter
Garden to look at the plans. It is
the portable on the left side of
the parking lot with the black
door.


Principal Mike Armbruster welcomes Ginger Klega, media
specialist, and Bob Shrader, technology support representa-
tive, to the staff.

Teacher Linda Gause's pre-kindergarten class was all smiles as the students posed for a photo
with new books they received from 'The West Orange Times' Reading Reindeer program. The
children were delighted to have another book to take home for their very own. This is just 1 of

West Orange High School recently hosted its 1st Civil War Day. The re-enactors are pictured in
their period costumes.


Civil War Day
On Jan. 7, West Orange High
hosted its first Civil War Day. The
event was organized by social
studies teachers Linda O'Brien
and Andrea Shrader and by Diane
-Burnett, a WOHS parent.
Burnett, along with her hus-
band, Danny, and their daughters,
Abby and Danielle (a student in
O'Brien's Honors American histo-
ry class), are avid Civil War re-
enactors. They belong to the Con-
federate Unit, the 37th Alabama.
The Burnett family and six of
their fellow re-enactors volun-
teered their time and expertise to
further the knowledge of the 11th-
grade American history students.
Throughout the day, students
spent the 50 minutes of their his-
tory class moving among seven
exhibits, hearing the exhibitors
speak about the various facets of
the war and asking questions of
the re-enactors.
Exhibits included Florida's
involvement during the war, civil-
ian life in Florida, life in the Union
Army, children's games of the era
and artillery, infantry and cavalry
of the Confederate Army.
The Burnett family erected their
tent (called a sibly), which was
adapted form the teepees of the
Plains Indians. Students also got
to taste genuine hardtack, a sta-
ple of both Union and Confeder-
ate soldiers' diet.
Both students and teachers
enjoyed the displays and discus-
sions. Faculty sponsors and MVi.
Burnett hope this becomes an
annual event.

Pasta for Pennies
begins Jan. 24 in
local schools
Each year, students across Ameri-
ca pool their spare change to make a
difference in the lives of leukemia
and lymphoma patients in their com-
munity as part of Olive Garden's
Pasta for Pennies fund-raising cam-
paign benefiting the Leukemia &
Lymphoma Society.
From Jan. 24 through Feb. 18,
Central Florida students will empty
their piggy banks, check under cush-
ions and turn out their pockets for
spare change to bring to their class-
room.
The class collecting the most-
money in each school receives a
pasta party, courtesy of Olive Gar-
den. Olive Garden also hosts kick-
off lunches as representatives of par-
ticipating schools in each city and
provides marketing support and
materials for the program.
"The spare change collected
through Olive Garden's Pasta for
Pennies remains in the communities
in which it was raised to help fund
lifesaving cancer research and pro-
vide critical services to patients with
leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma
and their families," said Carroll
Franklin, executive director of the
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
"During the past 11 years...students,
teachers and parents throughout the
Central Florida area have made a
tremendous difference in the lives of
patients in our community."
Olive Garden's Pasta for Pennies
raised more than $3.1 million last
year through contributions from ele-
mentary, middle and high school
students across the country. School
districts choose a three-week period
during the January through April
campaign when students bring in
their spare change.
"Pasta for Pennies provides a
powerful opportunity, to introduce
youth to community service," said
SDave Pickens, president of the Olive
Garden. "The enthusiasm and pas-
sion that many students demonstrate
through this program make it clear
that they are motivated to make a
difference in their communities and
the lives of their neighbors."

As I See It...
& Study of the Scriptures By George Gano


Why did God make the universe so big? I have
said for years that it would take thousands of
light years to reach some of the distant stars. I
read the other day that it would take eighteen bil-
lion years to reach some of God's distant celestial
bodies. If you left today and traveled at the speed
of light one hundred eighty six thousand two
hundred seventy two.miles per second, it would
take you eighteen billion light years to get there.
A light year is the distance light will travel in one
year.
I heard or read several years ago about one of
the foreign space men who said, "I didn't see
God up there." It's possible not to see him down
here on earth. We have to be willing to find him,

INTERDENOMINATIONAL


for those who seek him in sincerity they find
him. It looks like God could write off the earth,
forget about it, and still have plenty of stars and
planets left over. I believe we need God more
than He needs us. You might say what is God
doing now? One of the things He is doing is try-
ing to get the lost saved. God knows the begin-
ning and he knows the ending. For myself, I dare
not face this God unprepared, this is a must. I must
have the facts straight in regards to eternal life.
Jeremiah 8:7 in part: "Yea, the stork in heaven
knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and
the crane and the swallow observe the time of
their coming."
Do you know your appointed time? ADV.
