Principal, name chosen for


relief school in Winter Garden


Patricia Ramsey-Baney will lead
Whispering Oak Elementary


By Amy Quesinberry

Patricia Ramsey-Baney is get-
ting the opportunity to do exact-
ly what she always dreamed of,
and that is to establish a new
school from the ground up. She
will return to the Tildenville area
as principal of the new Whisper-
ing Oak Elementary School in
south Winter Garden after 10
years as principal of Orlo Vista
Elementary. WOES is the relief
school for the overcrowded
Tildenville and Lake Whitney
elementaries and will be ready
for students this fall.
Dr. Ramsey-Baney was the
curriculum resource teacher at
Tildenville for three years in the
early 1990s. Her new faculty
includes several teachers from
both Lake Whitney and
Tildenville, including kinder-
garten teacher Jan Penrose, who
was there when Ramsey-Baney
was CRT.
"I always wanted to start and
build the culture and climate of a


school," she said in an interview
last week at her temporary office
at LWES.
She has strong philosophical
views and high expectations and
is using those traits to build a.
solid staff that strives for acade-
mic success.
"My new staff will pride itself
on being eager, high-achieving,
open-minded and flexible,"
Ramsey-Baney said in a "Vision
for Excellence" she wrote and
handed out to all the teachers
who applied to teach at Whisper-
ing Oak.
The school name derived from
the huge old oak tree that grows
at the front of the campus. Com-
munity members fought to save
the tree with its interesting limbs
Sand branches.
Whispering Oak Elementary
is at 15300 Stoneybrook West
Parkway. It is designed for a
capacity of about 800; right now,
Ramsey-Baney said, there are

son.
Before joining the St. Johns River Water Management
District in 1999, Basili was the director of ornithology for
the Florida Audubon Society. It was in his capacity as the
Audubon's chief ornithologist that he became directly
involved in the bird issues at Lake Apopka.
During the past four years, he has worked as aland acqui-
sition planner and a technical program manager in the dis-
trict's Division of Land Management, and he serves cur-
rently as the senior project manager for the Lake Apopka

By Michael Laval

After two weeks of meeting
with local residents and tweak-
.ing their designs, developers
from the Sembler Co. were
expected to present a revised site
plan at an advertised public
hearing Thursday for the pro-
posed Winter Garden Village at
Fowler Groves project. But at
presstime Tuesday, the develop-
ers informed The West Orange
7imni that they will request a
continuance until June 9 of the
public hearings on three ordi-
nances relating to the project..
This continuance will have to
be approved by a majority vote
of the Winter Garden City Com-
mission at the meeting that will
be held at Tanner Hall on Gar-
den Avenue at 6:30 p.m.
If the continuance is not


approved, the public hearings
will take place. These public
hearings were postponed from
the April 14 commission meet-
ing.
The first ordinance would des-
ignate the Fowler property as a
Beltway Center, which would
allow for a mix of commercial,
office, hotel, civic and residen-
tial uses. The next would
approve the project's develop-
ment order and allow work to
begin The third would rezone
the Fowler property from resi-
dential (R-l) to commercial
(PCD).
The 1.5 million-square-foot
shopping center would be built
on the northeast corner of Coun-
ty Road 535 and the State Road
429 Western Expressway. Sem-
bler representatives say the mall
will have a town center atmos-


phere that will feature pedestrian
walkways, a movie theater and a
variety of restaurants and retail
stores.
Many residents who spoke at
the April 14 meeting said they
look forward to being able to
enjoy those amenities without
having to travel on West Colo-
nial Drive to another city. Some
residents who live in the Stone
Crest and Bay Isle neighbor-
hoods, which are closest to the
Fowler property, said they don't
want such a large commercial
development next door to their
residential communities.
The largest concern, however,
among Winter Garden's resi-
dents and elected officials seems
to be whether the roads that
serve the area will be able to
'accommodate the increased traf-
fic the mall would create.


Ocoee to demolish old fire station


By Mary Anne Swickerath

The look of the Ocoee Munic-
ipal Complex will undergo a
major change, but when this will
happen has not been determined.
Last week, the Ocoee City
Commission voted 3-2 to
demolish the old Fire Station
No. 1 in front of City Hall
instead of renovating it for
offices. Commissioners Danny
Howell, Rusty, Johnson and
Nancy Parker voted for the
demolition, and Mayor Scott
Vandergrift and Commissioner
Scott Anderson voted for the
renovation.
According to the city's con-
sultant, Herbert-Halback Inc., to


refurbish the old fire station
would cost approximately
$600,000.
Both Johnson and Parker said
the city is in great need of more
parking and the removal of the
building would open up the
entrance to City Hall and offer a
view of the lake, as well as make
the entrance a safer one than it is
now.
"We need the' parking; we
need the view, we need the safe-
ty," said Parker.
Public Works Director Bob
Zaitooni told the commission
the cost of demolition would run
"upwards of $20,000.".
This cost will be addressed in
next year's budget or, if possi-

ble, later in this fiscal year if,
funds are available.
City Manager Rob Frank also
said that most of the concrete
slab under that building can be
saved for parking.
Another topic under discus-
sion was erecting a new sign in
front of the Municipal Complex.
The consensus of the commis-
sion was in favor of having an
easy-to-read sign announcing
.city meetings and events.
Frank said city staff would
study what signs are available
that are in accordance with
Ocoee's Land Development
Code and bring that information

William, Christos and Mark and one daughter, Kathleen. He
also left 14 grandchildren. His family has been greatly blessed
by being in a family that included this special man.


Local police and fire


Pointe Orlando
carjacking incident,
The Orange County Sher-
iff's Office responded to a
report of an armed carjacking
Friday, April 22, at around'
1:30 p.m. at Pointe Orlando.
According to. the police
report, two Asian males were
in a rental vehicle parked at
Pointe Orlando. The driver
went into a store, while his
acquaintance stayed in the
vehicle.
As the victim returned to
his vehicle, he was reportedly
distracted by a Hispanic male
armed with a handgun who
smashed out the side window
behind the driver's seat.
The suspect managed to
obtain the keys and took off in
the vehicle with another sus-
pect as the two victims were
left at the scene. A second sus-
pect vehicle followed the first
- a back-up getaway plan.
Orange County deputies
located the victims' vehicle
less than 10 minutes later
behind the Cattleman's Steak-
house on International Drive.
The suspects abandoned the
victim's rental car after taking
three pieces of luggage from
the trunk. The police report
did not contain a list of the
luggage contents.
The suspects then escaped
into a third vehicle, which is
believed to be a Red Mazda
26, possibly a 1993, 1994 or
1995 model.
In all, there were six to
seven Hispanic male suspects,
all in dark clothing and some
with bandanas.
No age, size or other identi-
fiable information was avail-
able on the suspects.

Free immunizations at Family Care Center:


Health Alliance Family Care
Center, in recognition of Nation-
al Infant Immunization Week,
will be offering free immuniza-
tions April 25-29. The special
week is observed annually to
promote the health benefits of
routine immunizations for
infants and toddlers.
'This year's theme for the week
is "Love them. Protect Them.
Immunize them."
Immunizations protect your
child and the entire communi-
ty from the spread of conta-
gious disease. Vaccinating your
child is the first step and the most
effective way to guard against


preventable diseases that could
cause serious, illness or even
death. It is up to parents ,and
healthcare providers to ensure
that all children are immunized.
To receive free routine immu-
nizations, visit the Health
Alliance Family Care Center
Immunization Clinic at 1210 E.

Pet festival to seek homes for abandoned pets


Every year thousands of
unwanted, abandoned 'or lost
pets end up in shelters across
Orange County. Many of these
animals are adoptable, but find-
ing homes for all of them is a
challenge. To celebrate the
National Pet Adopt-a-Thon,
Orange County Animal Services
will host its Second Adopt-a-
Thon on Saturday, April 30.
The event will take place at


the Animal, Services shelter
located at 2769 Conroy Road
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Everyone
is invited to come and enjoy free
hot dogs, sodas and snacks and
receive information on pet care
and ownership from local ven-
dors.
Adoption rates are $35 for
cats and $45 for dogs. These fees
include spaying or neutering,
rabies vaccination and an identi-


fiction microchip for the pet
before it is taken home. Last
year, more than 600 people
attended the event and close to
60 pets found new homes.
Orlando Unleashed
Magazine, Coca-Cola, Planet
Smoothie, Homevest Realty,
CNL Bank, Multi Travel Con-
nection and Coldwell Banker

Volunteers come out to clean up Starke Lake
Even in the pouring rain, 14 brave volunteers came out to Starke Lake in Ocoee Saturday for
a lakeshore cleanup project, which was a great success. Volunteers came from Albertson's, the
St. Johns River Water Management District's Watershed Action Volunteers, Olympia High
School, the City of Ocoee POWR Program and Stormwater Division. Taking shelter in the
Ocoee Gazebo were (l-r, front) Catherine Johnson and Katie Smith, (middle) Gabrielle Milch,
Mayor Scott Vandergrift, Kate Recker and Tim Kohler and (back) Brian Cipollere, Buddy
Elmore, John Burr, Jeff Beierschmitt, Shelly Fox and Mike Leggett.


Principal
approximately 650 students
enrolled for the 2005-06 school
year.
SChildren living in the Whis-
pering Oak zone who are cur-
rently attending Lake Whitney
{several hundred) and
STildenville (about 450) are auto-
inatically transferred to'the new
school. New kindergartners, stu-
daents in the school zone and
those not currently registered at
Tildenville or Lake Whitney will
heed to register.
SWhispering Oak's attendance
zone encompasses the area south
of West Colonial Drive (except
Johns Landing and Deer Island)
to the southwest corer of
Orange County where it meets
Lake and Osceola counties. The
ihewer subdivisions of Stoney-
brook West and Summerport are
part of the zone.
: The school follows the same
basic prototype plan that Orange
County has instituted in other
area schools, but minor changes
have been made to the interior,
including locating the adminis-
tration office closer to the front.
Something different in this
new elementary school is the
"very-high technology," said the
principal. Instead of television
sets, all the classrooms will have
five-foot-by-seven-foot over-
head projection screens that can
be used in a variety of ways. The
school can broadcast the morn-
ing announcements on them like


(Continued from front page)


a regular TV; but teachers will
also, be able to lay manipula-
tives, textbooks and the latest
maps right on them (no trans-
parencies needed) or show
results of Internet searches (no
more huddling around a small
computer screen, trying to see
over classmates' heads)..
All classrooms will have wire-
less microphones for the teach-
ers, which improves the sound
quality for students no matter
where they are sitting.
The school will have science
and computer labs, with an addi-
tional 24 computers in the media
center.
Wanting to provide "some-
thing more than just daycare,"
Ramsey-Baney said, she is orga-
nizing the Mega Club, an enrich-
ment curriculum for the before-
and after-school program. There
is no enrollment limit to Extend-
ed Day either, so anyone can
participate.
The principal and her office
staff will move onto the campus
the first week of July. Three
weeks later, teachers will start
setting up their classrooms.
Parents and students can meet
the teachers already hired at an
ice cream social set for Tuesday,
May 3, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at
the West Orange Ninth Grade
Center, 1625 S. Beulah Road in
*Winter Garden.
Parents can sign up for a vari-
ety of committees, which will


meet over the summer to prepare
the school for a fall opening.
For more information, call
407-877-8888, Ext. 313. The
temporary office is in Room 915
at Lake Whitney Elementary.
Ramsey-Baney has hired 30
staffers and teachers and is still
interviewing for the positions.
So far, she said, seven teachers
will be National Board Certified
teachers by the fall, and one has
co-authored a book.
After they applied.and filled
out a thought-provoking ques-
tionnaire, she observed them in
their classrooms to see if their
teaching styles would blend with
her education philosophies.
"My whole goal is to establish
a school family."
Ramsey-Baney is proud of her
10 years at Orlo Vista Elemen-
tary, when she brought "the fail-
ing school to a high B" state
grade.
"I saw the challenges those
students walked into the door
with," she said, and worked with
her teachers to help the students
become problem-solvers.
"I put my whole heart into that
school," she said.
Prior to Orlo Vista, Ramsey-
Baney was assistant principal at
Waterford and Eccleston ele-
mentaries. Before her position at
Tildenville; she taught first, sec-
ond and fifth grades at Lockhart
Elementary and kindergarten at
Ridgewood Park Elementary.

Panther Festival returning

to Lakeview Middle School


The National Junior Honor
Society will host the second
Panther Festival on Saturday,
May 7, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on
the front lawn of Lakeview Mid-
dle School in Winter Garden.
The event will include a silent
auction.
A disc jockey will provide
music all day, and there will be
flavored ice treats, bounce hous-
es and animal educational ses-
sions where participants can
touch a variety of native Florida
animals, including the highly
endangered Florida panther.
Also that day, guests can enjoy
food, drinks arid bake sale good-
ies and browse at a yard sale that
will be set up. (At last year's
sale, shoppers filled bags with
clothes for $1. The remaining
items were purchased by a
church in Pine Hills and shipped
to Haiti for those less-fortunate.)
Proceeds from the day will go
to the care and promotion of the
Florida panther through Safari
Todd Wildlife Productions, a


not-for-profit organization that
educates middle school students
with a hands-on eco-education
and conservation program in
hopes of preserving the little nat-
ural Florida that is left.
Students actually get to touch
a variety of native animals, such
as tarantulas, scorpions, snakes,
skunks, alligators and a panther.
For more information on the
program, visit the Web site
www.safaritodd.org.
This festival will showcase all
that Lakeview's students have
done throughout the year and
possibly preview things to come.
The community is invited to
enjoy the day.
Items for the yard sale and
baked goods are being accepted
for community members wanti-
ng to make a donation. Sponsors
can also donate items for the
silent auction and will be
thanked on the stage skirt.

Opinion


Dear Editor:
We, the family and friends of Myrtle 0. Brown,
who passed away on April 21 after 86 glorious earth-
bound years with us, would like to let our West
Orange County neighbors know of the angels who
serve us on a daily basis. These so-often-unsung
angels responded to the love, sweetness and good-
ness of this fine and gentle lady, not with duty and
code book in hand but with sincere care, concern and
affection that put such pride and love in her heart for
the young men and women who truly served her.
The Ocoee Police Department members found her
in distress and sent her to the hospital after she did
not respond to their daily call to check up on her. This
is a free service to all Ocoee seniors living alone. If
not for them, we would not have had a blessed 20


Gallagher urges eme
to expedite hurricar
Dear Editor:

It's been more than six months since the last hurri-
cane ravaged our state, yet as many as 140,000
Floridians still have unsettled claims on severely
damaged homes or worse some Floridians have no
homes and are trying to start over. Insurance compa-
nies have provided data showing about 93 percent of
hurricane claims have been settled. Although I'm
pleased for the 93 percent who have been taken care
of, as Florida's chief financial officer I'm focused on
getting the remaining seven percent of the claims
resolved before the next hurricane season starts on
June 1.
I've been holding town hall meetings in each of the
areas affected by last year's storms, including Pen-
sacola, Punta Gorda, Sebastian, Fort Pierce and
Orlando. We've brought consumer service teams,
along with insurance company representatives, to
each of these meetings so that frustrated policyhold-
ers could speak with someone face-to-face. In the five
meetings Held so far, I have listened to and talked
with more than 2,500 homeowners. In many cases,
we have been able to move these victims' claims for-
ward by helping homeowners cut through months of
corporate red tape in a matter of hours.
While pleased by our progress, I know more could
be done. That's why I proposed an emergency rule to
expedite the resolution of open insurance claims.
This rule, approved by the governor and the Cabinet,
grew from much of the testimony heard during my
town hall meetings and the more than 350,000 calls
fielded by our department. Under the emergency rule,
insurers were required to settle and pay all outstand-


Central Florida is known for many things -
warm weather, abundant lakes, lots of homes
with pools and, unfortunately, dozens of acciden-
tal drowning deaths of children each year. While
parents may take some steps to ensure their chil-
dren are safe, there is no guarantee of safety when
children are around water.
Safe Start is o"ce of many programs that can
offer parents some-security in helping children to
be safer. Offered by the Central Florida YMCA,
in conjunction with The Dr. P. Phillips Founda-
tion and Infant Swimming Research, Safe Start
swim lessons are available to all children in Cen-
tral Florida, and. scholarship programs are avail-
able to those in need.
"Children are curious by nature," stated Safe
Start Director-April Vail.*'It is the goal of the Safe
Start program to give infants and children the
ability to react in a situation like this, not simply
how to swim, but how to survive."
The Safe Start program is a six-week course
consisting of daily ten-minute sessions, five days
each week. Certified instructors teach children
ages 1-4 how to swim through water, roll onto
their back into a floating position to rest and
rotate back over and swim to safety. Because
most drowning deaths occur during a child's nor-


days to love Myrtle and say our good-byes.
Thank you ladies, officers and Detective Edwards
of Ocoee Fire/Rescue for so tenderly chair-carrying
her down the stairs for every doctor visit.
And then, through a free-to-needy senior program
called Fully Involved Fund, a whole crew, with their
wives and children and materials, built her a wheel-
chair ramp in one day. She felt so honored and
blessed.
Thank you all, and also Chief Firstner. You are all
in our prayers for your goodness and selfless service.
When our citizens consider donations, they should
think "local" for our needy seniors through the
Ocoee Fire/Rescue and the Fully Involved Fund.
Friends of Myrtle Brown
Ocoee


rgency insurance rule
ne insurance claims
ing claims resulting from last year's storms by April
18 or provide a detailed and compelling explanation
as to why they could not.
This rule will help bring closure to storm victims
and provide them with the resources they need to
rebuild their lives. The timing of this rule will also
ensure that the residents who live in the areas hardest
hit have ample time to use insurance settlements to
prepare their property for the upcoming hurricane
season.
In order to protect their lives and property, and
avoid some of the horror stories I have witnessed, I
am encouraging all Floridians to prepare for this
year's storms now. This includes reviewing your
insurance policies and verifying the up-to-date value
of your property; considering flood insurance if your
area has been known to flood or if you are vulnerable
to a hurricane storm surge; considering "law and ordi-
nance" coverage if your house does not meet present
building codes; and reviewing the actual amount of
your hurricane deductible. Your insurer should be
able to help you with these matters. There is also a
wealth of information available on our department's
Web site at www.fldfs.com.
While I continue bur work to bring a resolution to
last year's hurricane season, I urge all Floridians to
take advantage of these final months of preparation
before hurricane season. The more time spent plan-
ning and preparing now, the greater the chances of
avoiding the heartbreak have seen in the eyes of fel-
low Floridians.

Florida chi(ffinancial officer


State CFO offers tips to citizens before
hurricane season begins


Dear Fellow Floridians,
Hurricanes are a way of life here in Florida, but
with adequate and early preparation, you can effec-
tively safeguard your family and property from dev-
astating losses.
Over the last eight months, my office has been
helping Florida residents recover from the fury of
Mother Nature. In order to learn lessons from last
year's storms and share them with all Floridians, I
recently traveled the state and met with more than
3,000 Floridians during town hall meetings in Flori-
da's hardest-hit areas.
My office has also fielded more than 350,000 con-
sumer assistance requests based on last year's
storms. By combining the invaluable testimony col-
lected with my experiences in dealing with Hurri-
cane Andrew and hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan
and Jeanne, my office is able to make the following
hurricane preparedness recommendations to all
Floridians:
Review your homeowner's insurance policy.
If you don't like your policy, shop around for a


new one.
Conduct a home inventory and take stock of
what you own and what it is worth.
Invest in preventive measures, like shutters, rein-
forced glass or even plywood.
Take advantage of mitigation discounts for pro-
tecting your home.
Start your own disaster savings account to assist
your recovery in a worst-case scenario.
These six steps, Floridians, in addition to disaster
planning recommendations by the Red Cross and the
National Hurricane Center, can help protect residents
from the heartache experienced by so many last year.
In addition, the Florida Department of Financial
Services offers a.wide range of consumer services. I
encourage you to visit us at www.fldfs.com or callus
at 1-800-22-storm.
I urge that everyone take the necessary precau-
tions, and I wish all Floridians a safe and uneventful
2005 hurricane season.

Florida chieffinancial officer


mal day, participants are taught these techniques
both in swimwear and normal clothes., The Safe
Start program has taught these survival tech-
niques to more than 100,000 children. Based on
feedback from parents and family members, there
are 750 known children who have participated in
Safe Start and used the skills they learned to save
themselves from a drowning situation.
I "As I swam in the pool with my children, I
turned to watch my other child just as my son
Ryan fell into the pool after his ball," said Leslie
Kleeb, whose son participated in Safe Start.
"Luckily, he fell in right next to me, but I decid-
ed to see what he would do since I may not
always be there. He immediately rolled over to
float on his back and lay there floating until I got
him. The skills Safe Start has taught Ryan can
save his life. He may cry during his class because
he has to work, but he has learned tools that can
save his life, and that is worth every tear."
The curious nature of children can lead them to
dangerous situations on a daily basis. By partici-
pating in a program such as Safe Start, children
will be better trained and able to react in a poten-
tially dangerous situation. For more information

ABD to auction
14,luxury condos
What do you do when you
have 14 luxury condominiums
for sale and more than 100
potential buyers? For David
Kohn, president of ABD Devel-
opment Company, the answer is
auction to the highest bidder.
"We have started construction
of the last luxury condominium
building overlooking Big Sand
Lake," said Kohn. "Currently,
we have more than 100 interest-
ed buyers. Each unit offers more
than 3,000 square feet of living
space, and the units will be avail-
able next year,"
Kohn said he doesn't under-
stard why auctions haven't been
used more often in Central Flori-
da.
"Demand for luxury lakefront
condominiums in southwest
Orlando currently outpaces sup-
ply," said Kohn explained. "In
that sort of market, an auction is
the way to best determine the
value of each individual unit."
The auction, will be scheduled
for this summer.

CFHLA adopts local schools


The Central Florida Hotel
and Lodging Association
(CFHLA) concluded its Adopt-
A-School program last week at
the Double Tree hotel in Orlan-
do.
The event celebrated the con-
clusion of the school year part-
nerships, in which CFHLA
members adopted local public
schools. The Adopt-A-School
program helped form a total of
70 partnerships this school
year.
Adoptive partners have a
physical presence at the schools
by providing- contributions,
mentoring students, supporting
school events and teacher
recognition programs. The vari-
ous activities offered by
CFHLA members provide stu-
dents with a first hand view of
career opportunities in their
area. Teachers and school staff
members also benefit from the
program through the contribu-
tions of improved technology,
financial assistance and grants.
"CFHLA takes its role as a
community partner very 'seri-
ously and places our education-
al efforts at the forefront," said
Rich Maladecki, CFHLA presi-
dent. "We are honored to be
recognized again for. those
efforts with this awards."
Maladecki said it is CFHLA's
goal to have a hotel-school
partnership in every public
school within the tri-county
area.

THE ART OF
STAGING THE SALE
Selling your home for maximum
market value is a process that will
require your full participation as
homeowner.. You cannot simply list
the property and wait for your realtor
to produce results. You must step back
and begin to see your home as others
will see it -a marketable product that
should be promoted as objectively and
artfully as a department store display.
The most successful professional
stagers work cooperatively with the
homeowner to achieve the look of a
model home. Preparing a home to
make a favorable impression on the
majority of buyers requires an artful
eye and knowledge of the elements of
universal or mass appeal.
For example, home staging profes-
sionals understand that neutral wall
tints are more widely acceptable than
bright colors. They know that exces-
sive clutter decreases the home's per-
ceived value, and that removing
selected pieces of furniture can make
a room look larger. They are aware of
the psychological effects of the bal-
anced, correct placement of each func-
tional element within the home.
A polished sales presentation will
net a greater profit. Home staging is a
valuable tool for selling your home at
the best price.
If you would like to talk further
about buying or selling real estate,
please contact Libby Tomyn at Centu-
ry 21 Professional Group. Call meon
my'personal message line, (407) 570-
0318.

CFHLA also received a Busi-
ness Recognition award last
week from the Florida Com-
missioner of Education for out-
standing support of education.
This award, which,CFHLA has
received for two consecutive
years, honors businesses that
work with local school districts
to improve academic perfor-
mance and increase student
achievement.

Brandon Burnette, a fifth-
grader at Central Florida
Christian Academy, recently
won first place in VFW Post
4305's Americanism Art
Contest for his age division.
The 10-year-old Winder-
mere resident has earned this
award three years in a row.
This year, Burnette titled
his artwork "God Bless'
America Parade." The col-
ored pencil drawing depicts
the contest theme "Every-
body Loves a Parade" and
shows a float that carries
symbols of America, includ-
.ing President George Bush,
the Statue of Liberty, an
American eagle, a U.S. sol-
dier, Uncle Sam and the
American flag.
As part of the award, Bur-
nette won $50 and his art will
be sent to the Florida VFW
headquarters for state judg-
ing.
Last year, his drawing of
an astronaut won first place
in both the local and state
competitions, as did his
drawing on an American
eagle the previous year.
The local artist has also
won other awards for his
work. His polychromatic
drawing called Best Friends
won a first place and superior
rating at the District Florida
Association of Christian Col-
leges and Schools competi-
tion last year and placed in
the top three at the state level.
Burnette also plays the
cello, is a member of a small
orchestra called Encore
Strings and hopes to become
an animator.
He is the son of David and
Lauren Burnette of Winder-
mere and the grandson of
Trudy Smith of Windermere
and the Rev. and Mrs. Cecil
Burnette of Hendersonville,
Tenn.

New exhibit at Millenia
Gallery to feature artwork
by Harold Rotenberg
Millenia Gallery is featuring an
exhibit featuring works by Harold
Rotenberg through May 10. Titled
"100 Years; 100 Paintings," the
exhibit will celebrate a century of
work by Rotenberg.
The artist studied at the Boston
Museum of Fine Arts School in the
early 1920s when realistic drawing
was everything. His proximity to
Provincetown, however, and the
modem painters theie, exposed him
to the more expressive painting
associated with this painter, whose
100th birthday is celebrated with
the exhibition.
Eventually, the artist studied in
Paris, making his first trip at 19.
Throughout his life, Rotenberg
immersed himself in the world.
"I got the travel bug when I was
young and have never lost my
curiosity, my wonder about what is
on the other side of the hill," he said.
At the age of 90, he remarked that
his work was still constantly
improving. Millenia Gallery is
located adjacent to the Mall at Mil-
lenia, just east of the Conroy Road
exit of Interstate 4.

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-
dren and to get more books.into
the home. When a parent brings
a preschool child to visit a pedi-
atrician, he or she receives coun-
seling in reading and information
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 Eng-
lish classes, etc.) to the parents.
For details on becoming litera-
cy volunteer, call Sherry Clark at
the Adult Literacy League at
407-422-1540.

Justin Aldridge recently signed his baseball scholarship papers as his grandparents (at left),
the Rev. Marvin and Joy Shelton, and his parents,'James and Debby Aldridge, looked on.


Justin Aldridge
As 17-year-old West Orange
High -senior Justin Aldridge put
ink to his letter of intent earlier this
month, he was extremely pleased
with his choice and looking for-
ward to becoming a Bulldog on
the Samford University baseball
team in Birmingham, Ala.
The road to Samford was paved
,with many miles to colleges and
universities, talking with coaches
and attending ball camps.
Aldridge, a ballplayer on orga-
nized teams since he was a 4-year-
old, has always dreamed of play-
ing college ball for a Division I
school.
He visited many universities
and received early acceptance.
But, after attending a ball camp in
January at Samford, the choice
was clear-cut. It is a Division I
school with an excellent academic
program and is in the Ohio Valley
Conference and it needed a
shortstop.
What impressed Aldridge most
about Samford was the baseball
coaching staff. Head Coach Casey
Dunn is new at Samford this year,


signs with Samford University


coming from an assistant position
at Auburn University with a vision
of where he wants to take the Sam-
ford team in the future.
Aldridge will be playing short-
stop at Samford, taking honors
classes and pursuing a double
major in political science and psy-
chology.
One of Aldridge's goals during
some point of his college career is
to serve as,an intern in the Bush
Administration, and Samford

West Orange boys tennis team wins District 4A title


The West Orange High boys
tennis team made school histo-
*ry recently by winning the Dis-
trict 4A title. The Warriors won
a tight three-way contest with
Olympia and traditional pow-
erhouse Boone. It was a total
team effort as every player
scored points on the crucial
.first day.
"We didn't get a lot of seed-
ed players this year, and it
'made each match the kids
'played that much more impor-
'tant," said Coach Charles,
Hooper. "We were in a two-
way tie with Boone at eight
points each, with Olympia
back in second with seven at
the end of the first day. I really
didn't know where we stood
until I saw Tuesday's sports
page."
S The doubles matches would
be the deciding factor. Boone's
'No. 2 doubles lost to Olympia,
which then put Boone out of
the running. West Orafige was
'now tied with Olympia going
'into the No. 1 doubles match.
Whoever won the match would
win the districts.
"Gabriel [Mattos] and .his


younger brother, Daniel, are
the best doubles team I have
ever seen at the high school
level. They aren't big or over-
powering, but they have great
shot placement and don't try to
end the point in a hurry. One is
right-handed, and the other is a
lefty. When they play, it's real-
ly like money in the bank,"
said Hooper.
Mattos and Mattos won the
first set with a couple of ser-
vice breaks., Olympia came
back strong and took the sec-
ond set. There was a 10-minute
break before the third and final
set.
"Gabriel's aunt told me to
tell them to play every point in
the last set like it was match
point at Wimblddon. That's
about all the coaching I did for
that day. All my players make
my job really too easy. Some-
times the best way to coach is
not to coach," added Hooper.
Mattos and Mattos broke
Olympia's serve right at the
start and never looked back as
they went on to win the match
and help secure WOHS's first
district title. The final score


was West Orange 12, Olympia
11 and Boone 11.
All season long Hooper told
the team that it was all "prac-
tice" for districts. The team
had lost its No. 3 player early
in the season and had to move
the No. 4 and No. 5 players up.
The boys took it in stride, and
they kept getting better.
Hooper said: "On paper, our
lineup didn't look really
strong; but matches aren't
played on paper. Our team
motto was 'On any given
day...anything is possible,'
and our kids proved that."
The 2005 District 4 Champi-
ons are Gabriel Mattos at No.
1, Daniel Mattos at No. 2,
Clint Lutchman at No. 3, Wess
McMillan at No. 4 and Brian
Barnett at No. 5. The No. 1
doubles team is Gabriel Mattos
and Daniel Mattos. The No. 2
doubles team is Barnett and
McMillan.
Gabriel Mattos will go to the
state competition at the No. 1
spot, and Daniel Mattos will
go as his No. 1 doubles partner
because of their wins at district
competition.


The West Orange Warriors
fastpitch softball team finished
the regular season on a 21-game
winning streak, including 13
consecutive Metro Conference
victories to win the always-tough
Metro Conference Champi-
onship. This is the Lady War-
riors' second conference champi-
onship in the past three seasons,
as the Lady Warriors also won it
in 2003. In 2003 the Lady War-
riors reached the regional finals
before being knocked off by

Stephens hit home runs in the
first game, while Kristen Stewart

In between games the Lady

senior players. Those girls have
a remarkable record of 86-24
over their four-year careers at
West- Orange. The five seniors
who were honored were Merri

In the nightcap the Lady War-

hold the Bulldogs to just 3 hits in
five innings, as Rausch
improved to 7-0 on the season.
West Orange improved to 21-1,
while the Bulldogs from Saint
Cloud fell to 15-6. Jen Henry hit
her first home run of the season,
a line drive over the left field
wall in the bottom of the fourth
inning. Her home run makes her
the eighth player on the Lady
Warriors team to hit a home run
this season.
On Thursday the Lady War-
riors knocked off the East Ridge
Knights from Clermont. The
Lady Warriors travelled to Lake
County and came home with a
5-0 victory. Rausch took the
victory, pitching a complete


game shutout for her third of the
year. West Orange got 2 in the
third, 1 in the fourth, and 2 in the
fifth for all the scoring it would
need.
On Friday the Lady Warriors
finished the Metro Conference
schedule with an unblemished
13-0 record by knocking off
neighboring Olympia High
School 12-1. Stewart pitched a
compete game for the victory

Disney's Magnolia course, a
PGA Tour tournament site every
year since 1971, is undergoing an
"extreme makeover" this summer
in preparation for the 35th annual
Funai Classic at Walt Disney
World Resort in October.
The makeover, which begins
May 9, will include resurfacing the
greens, laser-leveling tees, extend-
ing tee boxes and building new tee
boxes.When the course reopens on
Sept. 10, the greens will feature
TifEagle turf, a hybrid bermuda-
grass with playability more like
Northern bent grass than the previ-
ous surface, Tifdwarf.
Resurfacing the greens is just
part of the plan for the course,
which ranks 10th for years of con-
secutive use as a PGA Tour venue.
In those' 34 years, the par-72
course has shrunk from the origi-
nal design by legendary golf
course architect Joe Lee. The
shrinkage hasn't been literal, of
course. But through improvements
in golf equipment, and perhaps
players, golfers are hitting the ball
farther. Holes that once were con-
sidered monsters have been de-

9th annual Charity
Golf Classic for
Mustard Seed of
Central Florida
The Mustard Seed of Central
Florida and Cypress Creek Coun-
try Club are presenting their ninth
annual Charity Golf Classic. The
tournament will be held at Cypress
Creek Country Club on Friday,
May 13, and hosted by "Sexy
Savannah" of Real Radio 104.1.
The Mustard Seed Furniture and
Clothing Bank provides basic life
necessities to help Mustard Seed
families regain dignity and self-
worth.
Game day registration and silent
auction begin at 8 a.m. followed by
Savannah's Putting Challenge at 9
a.m. Play will get underway at 10
a.m. The individual entry fee is
$125; the fee for a foursome is
$400., Registration includes a box
lunch and soft drinks and an after-
tournament catered buffet. There
will be a cash bar, free golf balls
and hole-in-one prizes, including a
Dodge truck.
To register go to www.Mustard-
SeedFLA.org. or call 407-875-
2040, Ext. 13.


The plan is to lengthen 10 holes
by either enlarging the tee area or
by building a new championship
tee box. About 300 yards will be
added overall, making the yardage
from the "tips," the championship
tees, approximately 7,500 yards.
The work will affect three par-3
holes and seven par-4 holes, with
lengths increasing between five
and 50 yards on any given hole.
When the work is complete, four
of the par-4 holes will play around
480-485 yards from the tips.
Five of the six holes that have
proven statistically toughest for the
pros during the past 22 Classics are
affected No. 5, No. 9, No. 15,
No. 17 and No. 18.
"When Joe Lee designed our
finishing hole, his intention was
for players to use a 4- or 5-iron for
their approach," said Disney Head
Pro Kevin Weickel, of the 455-
yard par 4. "Now we have some
players using a wedge. By adding
30 yards to the length of No. 18,
we won't return it to Joe's original
intent, but we will make it more
interesting and challenging for the
players."
The Magnolia is the second of


Disney's five championship cours-
es to undergo green resurfacing.
The Palm course was resurfaced in
2004; and the change is getting
favorable reviews from players,
according to.Gary Myers, manag-
er of golf course maintenance.
"Right now, the Palm greens are
the best, which is what we would
expect. The six-year program is to
bring all the courses up to that
standard."
While the Magnolia course is
closed by renovations, players can
play the Palm or the Osprey Ridge,
Eagle Pines, Lake Buena Vista or
Oak Trail courses. Oak Trail is a 9-
hole course.
Beginning May 2, area golfers
can enjoy Disney's Price Slice
rates. For nearly five months, Dis-
ney will feature special savings on
tee times after 10 a.m. Rates on the
championship courses are $45 for
the Palm or Lake Buena Vista
courses, $50 for Eagle Pines and
$60 for Osprey Ridge after 10 a.m.
from May 2 through Sept. 29. Tee
times can be booked online at
www.disneyworldgolf.com or by
calling 407-WDW-GOLF. Fees
include use of electric cart.

WOHS Thespians close season with 'The Music Man'


The West Orange High Theater
Department will open its spring
musical, The Music Man, this
week. The students have worked
along side their parents and in
some cases, their younger broth-
ers and sisters both on stage
and backstage..
Director Ken Rush decided to
incorporate adults and small chil-
dren into the show with the hope
that families would take the
opportunity to view what their
children do every afternoon dur-
ing rehearsals. Being a part of the
show has given them a different
perspective of the hours, the hard
work and the tears that go into a
production.
The Rush family is well repre-
sented with Ken Rush directing;
his son, Benjamin, in the title
role; and his wife, Sara, in the box
office on show nights. She is also
the cast's "mom" for hurts,
scrapes and bruised egos.
Kelly Prince will be starring in
her first major role as Marian, and
she will be accompanied by ier
mother, Betti Prince, principal of
Lake Whitney Elementary. Kelly
will als6 share the stage with her
brother, Brett, a ninth-grader, and
her 4-year-old sister, Rebecca.
Tara Whitman, a graduate of
WOHS, returns to the stage as
choreographer for the production.
In addition to the rest of the cast,
she will be choreographing her
mother, Cindy, and her two sisters
- Tamra, an eighth-grader at
Lakeview Middle, and Andrea, a
junior at WOHS.

husband, Bob, has long been a
strong supporter of the Thespians.
She said: "My kids live for
drama; they have given up other
activities to devote more time to
drama. Since my daughters are
involved and I participated in
drama during my high school
years, I thought it was time for me
to get on stage again. We are hav-
ing a blast."
Jenny Boyle has helped her
mother, Mary, through the rigor-
ous rehearsals. Lorin Berger has
shown her dad, Joe, and her sister,
Aimee, the ropes. Three-year-old
Jessica Kirkland is excited to be
on stage with her big sister, Jen-
nifer McAllister.
Local theater audiences may
remember Francie Moon for her
performance as Guinevere in
Camelot for the Moonlight Play-
ers. She will share the stage with
her three young daughters,
Analise, Clarissa and Elina. The
Moon children were also seen last
year as royal princesses in The
King and I at WOHS.
Not all family participation is
onstage. The Corbin family is
involved in technical aspects.
Daughter Alexa is on the costume
crew, along with her mom, Robin.
Dad Craig has donated time and
equipment to WO drama. He sup-
plied a sound system last spring
when'the old system went out and


could not be repaired before the
opening of the production.
Dianne Demotes is lending a
hand with costumes while daugh-
ter Geneva sings and dances in
the chorus.
These are just a few examples
of family participation. The
strong parent groups show their
support in time, money, food and
encouragement.
Community members can now
show.their support by making a
reservation for an outstanding
evening of theater this week.
The show is set to open April-
27 and runs through Saturday,
April 30, at 7:30 p.m., with a
matinee on Sunday, May 1, at
2:30.
There will be a special recep-
tion after the Thursday night per-
formance for any eighth-grade
student who- is planning on
attending WOHS next year. Call
to reserve a spot at this free event.
Prior to the Friday night show,
an audience member can pur-
chase a special ticket that
includes a pre-show gala recep-
tion with the cast and crew for
$20 per person. Hors d'oeuvres
and drinks are included.

tion, call 407-905-2400, Ext.

The troupe's. production of
Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in

ratings from judges at the Dis-

ings and props all student-
found and created.
The show, which was the only
non-musical dramatic produc-
tion chosen to perform at the
event, was performed at Fergu-
son Hall at the Tampa Perform-
ing Arts Center. Starring Marcus
Bridgewater as Walter Lee and
Kym Burs as Mama, the play
brought down the house with an
extremely stirring performance.
The mainstage production,
however, was not the only event

Fu ation


The West Orange High 9th-Grade Center is pleased to
announce the Renaissance Warriors of the Month: Anna Velez,
staff member; Rose Drolshagen, teacher; Juan Mata, student;
and Edward Jones, senior assistant principal.


The Foundation Academy Players recently completed another
successful play The drama, 'Kilroy Was Here' by Tim Kelly, is
a patriotic musical set at a USO club in Brooklyn during 1942.
The story-was interesting with a lot of comedy and very diffi-


cult music, which all culminated with a tribute to the branches
of the armed forces. In 1940s terms, the play was keen and
had spiffy dollies and GIs doing swingeroo quickies with few
snafus.


S"- I g These 3 friends are
in Mrs. Julia's 5-
.i year-old class at

si an Preschool. They
made crowns as part
of the morning art
"activity. Pictured are

Hoe hate


Earlier this year, the Orlando Repertory Theater, in partnership with the UCF, offered an oppor-
tunity for all students in grades 1-12 to participate in a 'Writes of Spring' Contest. Students
wrote essays, stories or poems on the topic of 'A Pocketful of Gifts.' They were to answer this
question: If you could give any gift in the world, what would it be and to whom would you give
it? The students in Mrs. Mannion's 2/3 class at Hope Charter took up the challenge. There were
nearly 200 submissions, and 57 students won honorable mention. Five of those were in Man-
nion's class. UCF's graduate students in Playwriting for Young Audiences developed a full-
length play based on all the winning and honorable mention submissions. The play was per-
formed in a reader's theater style recently at the REP in Loch Haven Park. Many students,
along with their parents, were there to see their writing come to life.


A


Rep. Ric Keller visits Mrs. Lessel's 2nd- and 3rd-grade enrichment classes at Palm Lake Ele-
mentary.


Special visitor
Students in the second- and
third-grade enrichment classes
at Palm Lake Elementary have
been studying the creation of
laws. They learned that although
lawmakers propose a bill, they
act as representatives of the
community.
To fully understand the
process, the students identified
the problems in the community
and came up with possible solu-


tions. The issues included child
safety, vandalism, pet violence,
traffic issues and the destruction
of trees and animal habitats.
The students learned the for-
mat of a formal business letter,
and each wrote a letter explain-
ing the concerns and potential
solutions to Rep. Ric Keller, the
District 8 congressman in the
US. House of Representatives.
As a special treat, Keller visit-
ed the students in their class-


room and personally received
the letter from each student.
While at the school, Keller
explained his role as a congress-
man, listened to the students'
concerns about their community
and answered any questions
they posed.
PLES would like to thank Mr.
Keller for providing the students
with the opportunity to interact
with their congressional repre-
sentative.


Lakeview Middle


District oration contest
Lakeview Middle. recently
hosted the district speech
contest sponsored by Mod-
ern Woodmen of America.
Prior to the contest, the stu.-
dents had already won first,
second or third places in their


local school's speech con-
test. They shared their pre-
sentations on this year's topic
- "A Great Moment in Amer-
ican History."
The first-place winner was
Leyla Chong, a fifth-grader
from Thornebrooke Elemen-


tary. She won $50 cash and a
trophy. Second place went to
Rachel Tobillo, a sixth-grader
from Corner Lake Middle,
and the third-place winner
was Lisa Levin, a fifth-grader
from Thornebrooke. They
also received trophies.

As I See It...

A Comment & Study of the Scriptures Remembering George Gano


Our Heavenly Father daily invites us to set with Him at
a table for two. There He speaks Words of comfort, hope,
direction and love. Won't you accept His invitation to join
Him as He speaks today through His Word?

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me
lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still
waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of
righteousness for His name's sake. Psalms 23:1-3

Dear Lord Jesus Christ,
You truly are my shepherd. Thank you for leading me
and providing for me. Thank you for knowing the path and
speaking my name personally. We dumb sheep are not sup-
posed to know how to care for ourselves, but You do, so I
will trust You.

I shall not want. Thank you that I can find complete sat-

emotional and spiritual needs.
Dear Shepherd, thank you that I can lie down in green
pastures, for truly You are the Prince of Peace. You
brought peace to my heart and into my life the day I
received you by faith and You renew my peace through all
of life's trials.
Oh thank you, Shepherd Jesus, for leading me.beside the
still waters. You are the living water that satisfies my
thirst. You are my protector from the raging floods, the
dangers I am not even aware of. In You I find satisfaction
for my thirst and protection from all danger.
May we meet again tomorrow? Thank you, I can hard-
ly wait. I love you...

Ocoee High School Update


By Mike Armbruster
Principal

This past week was another
busy one for the Ocoee High staff
here at Portable P and Portable D-
2 meeting with vendors, getting
yearbook pictures set up for
seniors, holding our first PTSA
and School Advisory Council
meeting and interviewing for posi-
tions.
I want to say. a special thank-
you to two parent volunteers,
Laura.Keller and Dan McParland,
who gave up two days to sit in
with our committee to interview
for the three remaining assistant
principal positions. We had the
good fortune of interviewing 11
extremely talented educators.
Thanks also go to staff members
Barbara Schneider, Carol Smith
and Ginger Klega, along with
Area Executive Director Tom
Akin, who finished out the com-
mittee.
We were able to select a field of
four candidates to present to the
superintendent for the final selec-
tion. What makes this so exciting
is that these individuals will actu-
ally be in charge, if you will, of
each school.
With the model of Smaller
Learning Communities that we are
putting in place, the final three,
along with current Assistant Prin-
cipal George Morse, will each take
care of one of the four schools.
They will be the point person for
their particular school.
Speaking of the four schools,
with a focus on creating a truly
academic environment; we have
determined after much considera-
tion to name each of the schools
after an Ivy League college. The
names of the four schools will be
Harvard, Columbia, Princeton and
Yale.
While our vision is "Every Stu-
dent Will Graduate," we want to


keep students focused on the fact
that there is life after high school
and that each one of them will not
only graduate, but will graduate
with choices that will include
attending any school anywhere.
On another note, if you happen
to be traveling down Ocoee Apop-
ka Road near the school, you will
notice that the new school direc-
tional signs are up pointing the
way to our school. Not only are
they up, but you will quickly
notice that they are not in the tra-
ditional green and white colors of
street signs. No, the signs are in
the school colors of black and
gold.
I want to thank the city of
Ocoee for taking such a wonderful
interest in this school, even down
to small details like that. Mayor
: Vandergrift and I met at the sign


Ol ympiaH ig


setting, and it is wonderful to be at
a school where we are truly on the
way to creating that strong com-
munity school all of us talk about
but oftentimes very few really
have the opportunity to attend.
Yes, it was another busy week
preparing for the big day on Aug.
8.
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 community school
or. visit our Web site at
http://www.ocoeehighschool.ocps
.net.
Just a reminder: Please do not
enter the construction zone. While
the school is being built, it is tres-
passing. 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.


I ----- -
Mrs. Vitter's 3rd-grade class at Lake Whitney Elementary again earned the highest number of
medals for the Accelerated Reader Program in .grades 2 and 3 during the 3rd 9 weeks of
school. Using the Olympic theme, students earned points after reading and testing on select
books. The winning class received a special breakfast and a book for each student. A big thank-
you goes to the PTA for funding this program.


Olympia High students who performed with the All-County Jazz Ensemble are (l-r): Case
O'Donnell, 9th grade, trumpet; Sara McKee, 10th grade, piano; guest clinician Ron Modell; Jan
Kivler, 10th grade, trumpet; and John Meyer, 11th grade, lead alto saxophone.


Teacher receives
national recognition
Erin Foley, orchestra director at
Olympia High, has been selected
from a national applicant pool to.
attend one of the 28 summer study
opportunities supported by the
National Endowment for the
Humanities.
The Endowment is a federal
agency that each summer supports
seminars and institutes at colleges
and universities so teachers can
study with experts in humanities
disciplines. Foley will participate in
an interdisciplinary entitled
"Mozart's Worlds." The four-week
program will be held in Vienna, Aus-
tria, and will be directed by Dr.
Richard Benedum of the University
of Dayton. The 30 teachers selected
for the program will each receive a


stipend of $2,800 to help cover trav-
el, study and living expenses.
'There was a large number of
applicants to the Mozart Institute,"
said Benedum. 'Thus, it is a real
credit to Ms. Foley that she was
chosen."
Foley is a graduate of Hamilton
College, where she double majored
in music and creative writing. This is
her third year of teaching at
Olympia, where she directs the
orchestra and teaches piano and
composition.
Jan McClure, the school's learn-
ing resource specialist, said this
about Foley in her recommendation
letter: "Erin is a full-time music
teacher here, but as others and I
have known all along, she is a full-
time life force. She contributes so
much to everything to her stu-


dents, her school, her colleagues,
our profession."

All-County Jazz Concert
The All-county Jazz Concert was
held at Olympia High recently. Con-
gratulations go to the 4 Olympia stu-
dents who were selected by audi-
tion to perform: John Meyer, 11th
grade, lead alto sax; Sarah McKee,
10th grade, piano; lan Kivler, 10th
grade, trumpet; and Case O'Don-
nell, 9th grade, trumpet.
The Jazz Ensemble was con-
ducted by guest clinician Ron Mod-
ell, professor of trumpet and director
of the Northern Illinois University
Jazz Ensemble in DeKalb, III.
Also serving as guest clinician for
the Middle School Jazz Ensemble II
was Kenneth Boyd, director of
bands at Olympia High.

The new directional street signs are in at Ocoee High School,
and they're in the school colors of black and gold. Mayor Scott
Vandergrift and Principal Mike Armbruster are excited by the-
strong partnership that is already in place for OHS.
