center would be the largest
of its kind in Central Flori-

munities that neighbor the
Fowler property have
voiced their concerns at
previous commission meet-
ings about the size of the
mall and the traffic prob-
lems it could create.

New projects

in planning

stages for

Maguire Rd.

By Mary Anne Swickerath

The Ocoee City Commission
OK'd preliminary plans for sev-
eral new construction projects on
Maguire Road south of West
Colonial Drive last week.
The Wesmere Property Subdi-
vision includes 100.23 acres on
the eastside of Maguire Road
north of the Cross Creek commu-
nity and south of the Florida
Turnpike, and its plans call for a
future elementary school site,
residential townhouses and 14.1
acres of commercial develop-
ment. The site also includes a lift
station, a wet retention pond cov-
ering 16.99 acres, buffers and the
future right-of-way extension of
Tomyn Boulevard east of
Maguire Road.
The proposed townhouses,
named the Villages at Wesmere,
will include 369 townhouses on
49.48 acres (7.46 dwelling units
per acre and, according to Ocoee
Planner Catherine Armstrong,
"well under the maximum densi-
ty" allowed in the city's Future
Land Use Plan for high-density
residential).
SThe main concern from area
homeowners was traffic, and a
traffic study is being required by
the city in reference to. a traffic
light for this project.
The City Commission also
required the developer to use bar-
rel roof tiles on the townhouses
unless there is a supply shortage
of these at the time of construc-
tion.
Another Maguire Road prelim-
inary plan approved last week
was for the third phase of the
Plantation Grove commercial
subdivision on 7.94 acres located
directly south of the Publix shop-
ping center on the eastside of
Maguire Road.
The proposed first part of this
development includes a 21,520-
square-foot general business
building with approximately 13
tenant spaces. The second part is
designed for a 3,820-square-foot
AmSouth Bank with five drive-
through lanes. The third part is
the proposed location of a 6,000-
square-foot high-quality restau-
rant, and the fourth part will
include, if approved, an 8,000-
square-foot building that will
house either a restaurant, retail
space or a daycare.
Commissioner Rusty Johnson,
who represents south Ocoee,
expressed his feeling that this
was going to be a high-quality
development that will be well-
received by the area residents.
The commission also approved
the preliminary subdivision plan

Apopka-Vineland Road construction


By Kathy Aber

The widening and realignment
of Apopka-Vineland Road in the
area of the Florida Turnpike
north toward Old Winter Garden
Road is targeted for completion
and opening next week.
According to Shawn Kennedy
of the Orange County Highway
Construction Division, the con-
tractor recently notified the
county that the roadway will be
at substantial completion May
21, which means all lanes will
be open for travel by then. The
road should be at final comple-


tion 30 days after that.
Time extensions were granted
to the contractor due to delays
associated with last summer's
hurricanes, as well as additional
work requested by the county.
The widening of Apopka-
Vineland Road from Conroy-
Windermere Road to Old Winter
Garden Road has been ongoing
for more than five years. The
entire project is within Orange
County District 1, which is
supervised by County Commis-
sioner Teresa Jacobs.
Jacobs spoke with The West
Orange Times Tuesday about the


project and how difficult it has
been for motorists who adjusted
to frequent detours, realign-
ments and varied arrangements
of barricades and orange high-
way cones during the. lengthy
construction process.
Jacobs said the realignment of
Apopka-Vineland Road, which
now cuts through her neighbor-
hood, was one of the concerns
that started her involvement in
county government.
"All four lanes will be up and
flowing next week. Everybody,
like myself, who drives that road
everyday will probably have

It has been a year since you passed. We
think of you often, especially when we
see the garden growing, or fishermen
on the lake, or an interesting yard sale.
We wish you could have watched the
youngest grandchildren grow up, but
the time that you spent with them will
always be precious to each of them. We
are glad that you were able to attend the
weddings of the two oldest grandchil-
dren. We are grateful for those times,
and we cherish the moments that we
had together until we join you.

Although she works as a prac-

drawn to medicine since her

Section 3, -the portion from

An nuT'ty

Ok...you bought an annuity a few years back. You received the
contract and filed it away in a desk drawer or a lock box, and you
haven't given it a second thought since, have you?
Frankly, it would be wise to think about it now...at least for a sec-
ond! Did you invest in a "Fixed Annuity"? Perhaps it was a "Vari-
able Annuity"...
Do you know what you own?
Recent studies show that many annuity investors "don't under-
stand what they purchased"; haven't had a review to determine if
the investment was appropriate for their current situation"; and
the worst of all; "hadn't seen the 'advisor' that sold them the con-
tract since the day it was delivered!"
Do ANY of those statements describe you?
Economic times change. An investment that you made a few
years ago may not be right for your retirement plans today. The
days of the "park it and forget it retirement plan" are gone forev-
er. If you have an annuity that is two years or older, it's time for
a review. And, if you haven't seen your "advisor" in more than a
year, you need to get yourself a REAL planning partner!

Shoppers give troops
free phone calls home
A recent study by the Opinion
Research Corp. indicates that
U.S. troops would prefer receiv-
ing a chance to call home more
than some traditional care pack-
age items. In fact, 78 percent of
Americans surveyed said that
U.S. soldiers would appreciate a
free phone call home more than
items such as toiletries, baked
goods or money.
Additionally, 95 percent
believe that allowing U.S. troops
to speak to their families on a
regular basis is an important
morale booster.
In response to these findings
and in celebration of National
Military Appreciation Month in
May, Saks Department Store
Group (SDSG) is supporting
troops with a special program
that will make it easier for sol-
diers to connect with their loved
ones.
During the "Let Freedom
Ring" campaign, which kicked
off the weekend before Mother's
Day and runs through July 4,
SDSG will provide soldiers with
a free call home for every $25
shoppers charge to their SDSG
store credit cards.
The company has set a goal of
raising one million minutes of
call time for the troops. These
stores are included in the pro-
gram: McRae's, Proffitt's, Car-
son Pirie Scott, Bergner's,
Boston Store, Herberger's,
Parisian and Younkers.
"We're pleased to be able to
bring a piece of home to our sol-
diers," said George Jones, presi-
dent and CEO of SDSG. "Our
troops demonstrate tremendous
courage and strength every day.
We believe that giving them an
opportunity to speak with their
loved ones will only make them
stronger and help boost their
morale as they fulfill their
duties."

Opinion


Dear Editor:

Last week, my lifelong friend, Shirley Smith,
and I attended the Winter Garden City Commis-
sion meeting in regards to the open-air mall that
is being planned for the Fowler property on
County Road 535.
I have never been so embarrassed as our
newest neighbors yelled, screamed, slammed
their fists on the podium and criticized our mayor
and commissioners for everything in reference to
their opposition to the mall.
I have never seen such disrespect, arrogance,
rudeness and inconsideration. The mayor and
commissioners were only there to listen to the
people's opinions.
I also witnessed citizens, including myself,
being hassled and threatened and a lot of name
calling that was totally uncalled for. Whatever
happened to "why can't we agree to disagree."
As a lifelong resident of this beautiful town
and many generations of my family before, this
town was built on blood, sweat and many tears in
the citrus business and truck farming in other
words, agriculture and everything that went with
it. We had small schools where everyone knew
each other. It was a kinder, gentler time when
people smiled and said "hello" and held the door
open for you a great example of a town out of
a Norman Rockwell picture. I miss those days.
We have.a whole different culture now, and a lot
of it is not nice although, in defense, there are
,titin-a lot of nice people.
.'-ThMen Disney'came along and everything that
'i'ame with it. We had- no choice we just had to


deal with it. Unfortunately, back-to-back freezes
put a lot of us citrus growers, as well as many of
those catering to the citrus industry, out of busi-
ness.
Downtown became a ghost town. Our mayor
and commissioners, along with the hard work of
our great citizens, brought it back to life, better
than ever.
Along with the growth, towns around us
extended their boundaries and built homes like
crazy, as well as strip malls, gas stations and
other commercial structures. Our commission
moved slowly and kept fast growth to a mini-
mum to try to keep a small-town atmosphere, and
they have done a wonderful job.
I believe we, the people of Winter Garden,
deserve a nice open-air mall like Winter Park's,
with nice restaurants, shops and entertainment.
Again, we did not ask for the growth but, with
it happening anyway, we deserve something nice
as an asset to the community.
After all, the Fowlers, one of the oldest, hard-
working, outstanding families in West Orange
(who, I believe, have owned that property for
about 100 /ears) could put a chicken farm or pigs
there. How would the residents like that?
I would like to take this opportunity to remind
everyone that it's your civic duty to attend these
meetings and let your voices be heard. Other-
wise, a small fraction of our citizens will influ-
ence the decisions being made. Our future
amenities depend on your participation.

Letters to the editor


Longtime Winter Garden resident recalls
past fondly, voices support for the mall


Dear Sen. Michael Bennett and Rep. Randy
Johnson:

Thank you for your leadership in sponsoring
proposed legislation dealing with land-use deci-
sions impacting public infrastructure, including
public schools. As a member of the Orange
County School Board, it is all too clear how
land-use decisions impact the educational envi-
ronment of our students and teachers.
In Orange County, voters made it perfectly
clear that school children are a priority. Voters
passed a 1/2 cent sales tax coupled with a 1/2
mill property tax roll back to renovate 136 older
schools and build an additional 25 new
schools. They also overwhelmingly passed a
charter amendment requiring joint approval by
local governments for land-use decisions
which increase residential density in already
overcrowded school zones.
Voters in Orange County supported
these meaningful and effective growth manage-
ment tools to improve their quality of life and to
strengthen the community they have chosen to
live in. They did NOT support these measures
to have their children rezoned to accommodate
unvested growth and they do NOT want pock-
ets of children within a community attending
different schools. Voters DO want better plan-
ning designed to consider the educational needs
of their children. They DO want coordination
and cooperation between local
governments to facilitate managed growth with-
out throwing communities under the bus, or in
this case, on the bus.
It is imperative that you understand that
Orange County Public'Schools operates under a
federal court-ordered desegregation plan man-
dating a transfer policy which is not tied to
capacity.
Accordingly, I am specifically requesting that


My Aunt Eva


Dear Editor:

In last week's West Orange Times article titled
"In Windermere it's business as unusual" which
said "traffic is down in Windermere and so is
business," we heard from the business owners
who are concerned that their businesses are suf-
fering due to lack of traffic.
On the editorial page of last week's issue, we
heard from former five-term councilman and res-
ident Bill Bardoe, who urged, "Close Main
Street, period."
And thus, you have the paradox that the elect-
ed officials and town manager are facing. It is
absolutely impossible to meet everyone's idea of
what the right thing is to do. But the town is try-
ing to find a sensible, equitable approach to our
current construction.

From the businesses' perspective
On April 26, I visited or talked to the own-
ers/representatives at Polo Cleaners, The Body
Coach, Sammy Du all's In the Wake, Oriental
Medicine, The ShaggN Shek and As You Like It.
After hearing their concerns, Council Member
Stephen Withets and Town Manager Cecilia
Bemier worked to find solutions. At this time a
number of concerns are being addressed, includ-
ing:
creating additional parking.
providing a construction schedule that will
allow business owners to know when certain
construction efforts will affect them.
attempting to provide handicapped access,


although it is complicated because the back
doors of businesses are not handicapped accessi-
ble. As a result, a special walkway will be pro-
vided.
improving signage.

From the residents' perspective
On the other hand, we have the residents' con-
cerns. On May 1, I met with a number of resi-
dents on Oakdale Street and Magnolia Street.
Additionally, our town manager received consid-
erable input. Areas that are being addressed
include:
stricter enforcement of traffic safety by issu-
ing citations for flagrant violations.
improvements to the base structure of the
roads. The dirt roads that handled hundreds of
vehicles are quickly deteriorating due to use by
thousands of vehicles.
expanded police coverage at key intersec-
tions.
stationing police officer at entranceways to
town to monitor and prevent large semi trucks
cutting through. However, we will still have
some large trucks that provide deliveries to local
businesses.
The elected officials and town staff continue to
receive ideas and suggestions. Each suggestion is
given careful consideration. As we move for-
ward, we will continue to listen to the people for
any possible improvements that can be made.

Gary Bruhn
Mayor of Windermere


When I lost my mother, Joyce Austin, just a
few short years ago, my Aunt Eva, Walker
wrote a really sweet article about her so, in
turn, I wanted to do this for her.
I really never thought this day would come
because I always thought she
was invincible. My Aunt Eva
was the matriarch of our
family the glue that held
us all together, through sun-
shine or rain. She had the
strength of 10 men but could
be as gentle as a lamb. And
when Eva spoke, people lis-
tened!
Eva was a wife, a mother, : .
a.nurse, the church treasurer
and a friend to all. She spent
her life helping others -
housing them, feeding them,
running errands and nursing
them .back to health. She
never wanted anything in
return. She always found the
best in everyone and gave
everyone her best. She'd
stand behind you for sup-
port, beside you for comfort EVA W
and in front of you for your E AL
protection. I can say from a
personal standpoint that she had the biggest
shoulders around and I had my share of lean-
ing on them.
She was also the planner, the organizer, the
decorator and the life of every party! She
loved to have fun with her family and friends,


and she loved to laugh.
My Aunt Eva could relate to anyone from
birth to 100 years old, but she loved the babies
the best. She took loving care of more infants
than I could name and loved every single one.
She would have raised them
all if she could. She had a
cradle in which many babies
had their pictures taken -
mine included. She always
told us that when she gets to
Heaven, she hopes that God
will let her take care of
babies. She was pretty good
S at getting what she wanted,
Sso I'm betting she got the
-job! I'm truly.going to miss
her, but it warms my heart to
think of her in that position.
In her article, she said my
mother always handled
everything with grace and
S dignity even with her pass-
S ing, and I can certainly say
the same applies to my Aunt
Eva. As she was nearing the
end, she wouldn't rest much
because she said she didn't
want to miss anything -
and she didn't.
My Aunt Eva lived her life and blessed
countless others along the way. I love you,
Aunt Eva. Your p.j.

Dear Editor:

The other day while shopping at Sav-A-Lot I
received such a nice surprise.
After selecting my tomatoes, I proceeded to get
in line to check out. A gentleman whom I didn't
know had several items and insisted I go in front of
him. I thanked him, and before I could get my wal-


Dear Editor:


let.out he handed the cashier a $10 bill and paid for
my tomatoes. I was so overwhelmed by his kind-
ness that I just turned around and hugged him.
It's so nice to live among such generous and
thoughtful people. May God bless him!

Editor's note: This is a wonderful story. How-
ever, we do not find good people like Thelma

about them all the time.


Expansion of Winter Garden postal services urged


Dear Editor:

It seems to me it is time for the Winter Garden
Post Office to step up to the plate and expand its
service to the people in its area.
Horizon West is in need of a post office in that
area: All of the subdivisions off County Road
535 are serviced by the Windermere Post Office.
Of course, people like that because everyone
wants a Windermere address whether they live


there or not. That area is rural Orange County
and very close to Winter Garden city limits. The
Windermere. Post Office is ,overcrowded with
people out of the area cutting through Winder-
mere to get to the post office. What a conve-
nience it would be for the good people in rural
Orange County to have their own post office.

pretty grisly stuff for a little community, but

you remove/amend any language in your pro-
posed legislation which would:
1) undermine the home rule authority of local
governments making local land-use decisions
designed to coordinate the availability of school
infrastructure with additional students, and/or,
2) mandate or prescribe reassignment of stu-
dents to contiguous attendance zones to accom-
modate unvested growth.
Obviously, Orange County's policy relating
to growth management is not a process without
conflict. It is, however, a process which care-
fully considers the needs of the whole commu-
nity. Please consider the appropriate language
changes to ensure that the proposed legislation
does not undermine the efforts and home rule
authority of our local governments. Feel free to
call me if you would like to discuss these issues
further: 407-716-6862.
Note: You may find it interesting to know that
while some developers resist the idea of consid-
ering school capacity prior to rezoning their
parcels to a higher residential density, many
developers have been willing to work with the
school district to obtain a Capacity Enhance-
ment Agreement coordinating funding and/or
timing of the projects with creation of school
capacity. The potential of public/private part-
nerships to help meet school infrastructure
needs in Orange County is just beginning to be
realized. Recently, a developer on the east side
of Orange County agreed to build two schools
and hold an interest-free loan for one year in
order to accelerate an elementary and middle
school already scheduled in the school district's
five-year plan.

Business


Dr. William Fravel, orthodon-
tist, recently welcomed local
businesses and colleagues to the
open house celebration of his
new, state-of-the-art Ocoee
office.
Upon entering the office,
guests are greeted by the sound
of trickling water as they pass a
waterfall. Patients sign in by
using a touch-screen computer
to instantly alert the office staff.
The reception room is filled with
magazines, toys, video games,
movies, cookies, juice and spe-
cialty coffee. Dr. Fravel said the
reception room sets the tone for
a one-of-a-kind orthodontic
experience.
During the appointment, each
assistant has a computer by the
patient's chair to quickly access
their information, including dig-
ital images of the patient.
"This office has been designed
with the patients' comfort in
mind; we want them to feel as
comfortable here as they do in
their own home," said Dr. Frav-
el. "Everything from the comfort
of the treatment chairs, to the
cookies and video games, to the
low-dose radiation digital imag-
ing machine was designed with
our patients' best interests in
mind."
The new facility offers full-
service orthodontic treatment
and is located at 1291 Black-

New restaurant planned for MetroWest


San Francisco Oven, a rapid-
ly growing fast-food chain that
promises its patrons a taste of
the Bay Area, is expanding to
Central Florida and.has select-
ed Vance Realty Group to
assist in the effort.
The Cleveland-based chain
plans on opening 10-12 San
Francisco Ovens in the Orange
County area over the next five
years. Vance Realty Group
commercial real estate special-
ist Michael Mansour has been
chosen to find locations for the
restaurants, which feature such
fare as Alcatraz Roast Beef,
Golden Gate Sausage, Pacific
Heights Turkey Focaccia, Pier
39 Clam Chowder and Nob
Hill Pizza Salad.
h Mansour will join business
brokerage manager Rob Mol-
nar and Vance Realty Group
President Arnold Matyas in
working with a local ownership
group who have purchased the
franchise rights for a broad
market that extends from

Orange County, and from
Kissimmee to Winter Park. The
group, which includes Char-
lotte Jones, Michael Terry and


Christoph Warnke, plans on
opening its first restaurant in
MetroWest later this year.
The restaurant's concept was
started by Matt Harper and
Eddie Cerino, who wanted to
give customers a taste of brick-
oven pizza, homemade soups
and salads and assorted sour-
dough sandwiches that hail
from the San Francisco Bay
Area.
According to Mansour, the
concept has been well-
embraced.
"San Francisco Oven appeals
to consumers who desire a
more aesthetically pleasing
experience than offered by tra-
ditional fast-food establish-
ments but at prices that fall
below a full-service casual
restaurant," said Mansour.
The restaurant will feature
wines from Napa Valley and
beers brewed in San Francisco.
Each one will range in size
from 2,500- to 3,500-square-
feet and seat about 100 people.
San Francisco Oven features an
open kitchen with a brick oven,
wall murals, wall coverings
and other items themed around
the Bay Area.


Windermere.
"We are currently engaged in
the design of the facility, and
given the location and clientele,
we are focusing on designing the
most sophisticated veterinarian's
clinic in Central Florida," said
Ruffin Rhodes, co-founder and


partner at Rhodes and Brito.
The firm is also: working as
the lead architect of the four-
story Florida A&M College of
Law building under construction
in downtown Orlando. The ani-
mal clinic will be developed by
Hunter Veterinarian Services.

HOME INSPECTION IS
BUYER PROTECTION
You may be tempted to buy a bar-
gain-priced home "as is," forgoing
the formality of a home inspection.
But think about this: without the
home inspection report, how do.you
know what the "as is" refers to?
Don't you want to know what condi-
tion the home is in before you buy it?
The inspection contingency typi-
cally allows the buyer to enlist the
services of a licensed home inspector
within three to seven days after the
purchase agreement 'is signed. The
inspector will go over the property
from top to bottom, evaluating the
condition that may be considered
defects and thus may affect the mar-
ket value or the safety of the home.
The inspector's report is the only'
documented proof of the actual con-
dition of the property that is being
sold.
The home inspection report is a
valuable tool that tells you about the
home before you move in. It offers
concrete information that can support
negotiation of the sales contract. It
gives you a "heads up" regarding
future maintenance projects. Don't
make a deal without a home inspec-
tion!
If you would like to talk further
about buying or selling real estate,
please contact Libby Tomyn at Cen-
tury 21 Professional Group. Call me

Using water efficiently
The city of Winter Garden
Utilities Department offers five
tips for using water efficiently.
Check your water meter and
bill to track your water usage.
Minimize evaporation by
watering during the early morn-
ing hours when temperatures are
cooler and winds are lighter.
Avoid planting turf in areas
that are hard to water, such as
steep inclines and isolated strips
along sidewalks and driveways.
Install covers on pools and
spas and check for leaks around
your pumps.
Use the garbage disposal spar-
ingly. Compost instead and save
gallons every time.

tions can call Dennis Jones at the
city, 407-656-2732.

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.
SReach 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 informa-
tion 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 more information on
becoming literacy volunteer, call
Sherry Clark at the Adult Litera-
cy League at 407-422-1540.

:New exhibit at Millenia
'Gallery to feature
:artwork by Harold
;Roterberg
. Millenia Gallery is featuring
$n exhibit featuring works by
Hlarold Rotenberg through May
I0. Titled "100 Years; 100
Paintings," the exhibit will cele-
Ibrate a century of work by
IRotenberg.
S The artist studied at the
'Boston Museum of Fine Arts
School in the early 1920s when
realistic .drawing was every-
ithing. His proximity to
Provincetown, however, and the
'modern painters there, exposed
, him to the more expressive
painting that we associate with
This painter, whose 100th birth-
day is celebrated with the exhi-
ibition.
Eventually, the artist studied
,in Paris, making his first trip at
S19. Throughout his life, Roten-
Iberg 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 constant-
ly improving. Millenia Gallery
is located adjacent to the Mall at
Millenia, just east of the Conroy
tRoad exit of Interstate 4.

SBook review

New restaurant guide is for real


S By Mary Anne Swickerath
Bob Mervine has done us all a
Savor. His just-published restau-
rant guide, Orlando Chow:
SRestaurants for the Rest of Us, is
S:informed, eccentric and useful.
It is informed because Mervine
Shas spent 30 years wining and din-
Sing his way around Central Flori-
:da (and much of the U.S.), and he
:has long covered restaurants for
Sthe Orlando Business Journal.
It is eccentric because there are
no ratings, no stars are given out,
and it doesn't pretend to be a com-
plete guide to Greater Orlando
restaurants. Mervine spotlights
105 restaurants from fine dining
*(Victoria & Albert's) to soul food
(Oley's Homestyle Cooking) to
ethnic eateries (Pho 88 Noodles).
What they all have in common
: is Mervine likes 'em. He likes
Their attitude, their service, their
commitment to good food.
And the guide is intentionally
Useful to both residents and
tourists. I've lived here for 32
years, I love all kinds of restau-
rants, and there are a number he
writes about I had never heard of.
It is also a clear guide (com-
plete with directions) for tourists
who would never find some of the
more interesting restaurants by
using a national guide, such as
those from Frommer or Fodor.
S Mervine told The West Orange
Times he had two reasons for writ-
ing the book: "First, to introduce
the rest of Central Florida to the
tourists who come here and don't
realize what else we have to offer
[besides the theme parks]. Sec-
ondly, to share my knowledge of
many restaurants that don't get
enough exposure with other Cen-
tral Floridians so they can enjoy
the experience and the restaurant
owners can prosper."
i He said he focused on restau-
rants that are unique to Florida.
"Mostly I avoided the chain
establishments not that there's
anything wrong with chains -
but because I wanted to focus on
experiences that both locals and
tourists would find unusual," he
said. "That ranges from the best
hot dog and hamburger in town to
ethnic cuisine, such as Polish and
Korean, to some of the finest din-
ing we have to offer."
When asked what he looks for
in a restaurant, he answered: "Pas-
sion. People who do the best job
of preparing and serving food are
passionate about their work,
whether it is an Asian family busi-
ness in a strip mall or Citricos at
Disney. If a dining room is dirty or
just not well organized, it's a
turnoff. If the service isn't eager,
friendly and knowledgeable about
the restaurant's dishes, more of a
turnoff.
"Finally, if the food isn't what I
wanted and no one seems to care
that-I'm not satisfied with it, I
won't make a fuss and I won't
go back and.I'll tell others about
!it."
For both locals and tourists,
: Mervine picks out six Disney
:restaurants to highlight: Boma:
:Flavors of Africa, California Grill,
Citricos (my personal Disney
Favoritee, Earl of Sandwich, Fresh
:Mediterranean Market and Victo-
Sria & Albert's.
: He advises readers that by
:avoiding the tourist areas they will
.be missing out on some excellent
:dining experiences. -
SOnly one restaurant in our cov-
,erage area north of West Colonial
'Drive made the guide, Taquitos
:Jalisco, the popular. Mexican
:restaurant in Winter Garden.
S Here's what Mervine has to say
about TJ's: "From fresh salsa and
:chips through guacamole and
refried beans, an entr6e or combi-
ination platter to soothing flan, the
Smenu is a treat."
He particularly likes the beef.
: tips in salsa verde and the chicken
with mole sauce.
A second local restaurant in the
'guide is yellow dog eats on
Hempel Avenue in Gotha run by
Chris "Fish" Morgan and Jim
Kaiser, Mervine likes its "quirky
charm, hands-on customer service
and great food."
A Dr. Phillips selection I was
: unfamiliar with that is spotlighted
in the guide is Magic Wok, a Chi-
nese restaurant, on Conroy-Win-
dermere Road at Turkey Lake
Road.
"For standard items like moo
shu pork or shrimp in hot garlic
sauce or rare fare like five flavor
I chicken or beef in black pepper
sauce, Magic Wok is worth it,"
writes Mervine.
Another new one to me is The
Dessert Lady on the comer of
Conroy and South Kirkman roads.
It's a wine bar, coffee bar and


dessert place.
According to Mervine, "The
menu includes 14 dessert items,
and none of them is bad."
There's chocolate cake, carrot
cake, lemon rum cake and key
lime cake (or pie) among the
offerings.
The other West Orange County


'Orlando Chow' is the newest Central Florida restaurant guide.


restaurants he writes about are all
on Sand Lake Road, the area east
of Apopka-Vineland Road brim-
ming with eating places. He prais-
es four of them: Anaelle & Hugo,
Cedar's, Moonfish and Seasons
52.
About this Restaurant Row
scene, Mervine said: "What is
good about it is having the wide
selection of cuisine available in
such a concentrated place. I
expect as development moves
west from the Marketplace, we
will see more.
"There have been and still are
some people who came there
because of the perceived volume
of business. But if they don't do
what they do quite well, they will
not survive. In fact, they will die
off faster than in other locations."
And a local landmark quite
close to many West Orange Coun-
ty hearts made Mervine's cut: Lee
& Rick's Half Shell Oyster Bar on
Old Winter Garden Road.
To quote Orlando Chow: "Lee
& Rick's has been here 55 years,
and while their other seafood
dishes, shrimp steamed or fried,
steamed crab legs and fried fish,
can be delectable, this is the tem-
ple for those of us who worship


the oyster."
I asked Mervine if there were
other West Orange County restau-
rants he liked but didn't include in
his guide.
He said the family-run
Matthew's Steaks and More on
Maguire Road in Ocoee almost
made the cut for the guide. It's a
restaurant he likes very much, he
said.
He also gave good marks to
another Ocoee restaurant, Le Bon
Appetit, offering French-accented
food a littler farther north on
Maguire, just south of West Colo-
nial Drive.
In addition, he praised the
Edgewater Caf6 (formerly Whip-
poor Willy's) in the Edgewater
Hotel on Plant Street in down-
town Winter Garden for its fried
chicken and macaroni and cheese
and family atmosphere.
"Also, believe it or not, the
Twistee Treat [on West Colonial
Drive in Ocoee] is also a favorite,
as much for the experience as the
ice cream," he said.
This 217-page guide, published
by The Intrepid Traveler, is avail-
able for $11.95 in local bookstores
and from www.intrepid
travler.com/.

Darden Theater
for Young
Audiences

The Orlando-UCF
Shakespeare Festival
recently announced the
2005-06 season for
Darden Theater for
Young Audiences.
The first play is Miss
Nelson Is Missing. It
runs Oct. 22 to Nov. 19
on Saturday at 2 p.m.
and Sundays at 4:30
p.m. Tickets are $13 for
adults and $9 for chil-
dren.
Based on the book by
Harry Allard and James
Marshall and adapted
by Joan Cushing, the
play centers on a class-
room of unruly students
who treat their caring
and lovely teacher with
complete disrespect.
She retaliates by dress-
ing up as a witch
named Miss Viola
Swamp and terrorizing
them with piles of
homework. In the end,
the students write a let-
ter of apology to her,
and she returns to find a
classroom full of well-
behaved students.
The Jungle Book,
based on the book by
Rudyard Kipling and
adapted by April-Dawn
Gladu, runs Feb. 4 to
April 1.
Gladu said: "As I
write this play, I am
allowing myself to
enjoy exploring the
relationship of animals
and humans. A secret
part of me believes that
there is a away to com-
municate with all crea-
tures if we only took
the time to listen.
Mowgli had that time,
and, because he didn't
know it couldn't be
done, he learned the
language of the jun-

Dr. Phillips High's baseball team celebrates its victory.



:DP Panthers win district title in baseball


By Bill Sawyer

It was one of those beautiful,
high-70s days with puffy
clouds in a bright blue sky, and
somebody had to lose. Fortu-
nately for the Dr. Phillips Pan-
thers, it wasn't them.
The Boone Braves simply
couldn't stop the Panthers as
they rolled to the Class 6A,
District 4 title Saturday.
While the final score was 5-
1, that doesn't tell the exciting
story. The Panthers opened up
with a 3-hit, 2-run first inning.
The Braves answered back
with a one-hit inning of their
own.
Both teams were hitless in
the second game, going three-
up, three-down on both sides.
But when Ohmed Danesh
opened the third inning with a
solo home run that was the
highlight of a 3-hit, 3-hit
inning, the Panthers never
looked back.
In fact, starting DP pitcher,
lefty Raul Torres, didn't give
up a single run until the last out
of the last inning. By then, the
Panthers had the champi-
onship.
Coach Mike Barefoot and his
team pulled out a great win that
proved their 9-1 win over
Colonial in the semifinals was
not a fluke. Next step for the
Panthers is the Class 6A,
Region 1 Tournament.

Chris Orcasitas (seated) signs his letter of intent to play college football as (1-r, standing) Coach
Tim Smith, brother Austin, mother Lydia, sister Irene and father Gilbert look on.


District champs
The Dr. Phillips varsity boys volleyball team won its first-ever district championship last week-
end. The Panthers beat Freedom to claim the title and advance through the state tournament.


Chris Orcasitas
West Orange High Head
Football Coach Tim Smith says
Chris Orcasitas will be hard to
replace. As a three-year letter-
man and a three-year starter on
the offensive line, Orcasitas was
a player with a wealth of experi-
ence.
Coach Smith will also miss
the lineman's dedication.


of WOHS receives scholarship


"Our program asks a lot of
our players, and Chris was one
of those young men who gave
us all he had," said Smith.
Last week, Orcasitas signed
his letter of intent to St. Olaf
College in Minnesota. At this
point, he is deciding between
business and education as a
major.


He was joined by a group of
family members: his mother and
father, Lydia and Gilbert; his
brother, Austin; and his sister,
Irene.
A highlight of his football
career at WOHS was being cho-
sen to play in the Central Flori-
da All-Star game in Raymond
James Stadium in Tampa.

ny'May 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the
school's north cafeteria to induct

year's top student-athletes. The
newest inductees to the hall will
be former DP Athletic Director
Bill Thompson, Patrick Damron
and Calvin McCall.
The Dr. Phillips varsity base-
ball team won the district champi-
onship last weekend for the first
time since 1999. The Panthers (18-
9) claimed the title with a 5-1 vic-
tory over Boone. Senior Raul Tor-
res struck out 6 batters en route to
pitching a complete game. Adam
Mindick and Kevin Mierzwinski
knocked in two runs apiece.
The team entered the district
tournament seeded fifth and start-
ed off with a 6-3 victory over No.

home run, while Mierzwinski
added a solo shot.

end in a regional playoff game
against East Lake played last week
in Tarpon Springs. DP had ham-
mered East Lake 52-6 in last
year's matchup but couldn't put
the ball in the end zone last week
and lost 6-0. Although the Lady
Panthers moved the football well
and were never forced to punt,
penalties and dropped passes
repeatedly stalled drives inside the
red zone. Dr. Phillips (14-1) fin-
ished the season as district and
conference champions.
The Dr. Phillips varsity boys
volleyball team won its first dis-
trict championship last weekend.
The Panthers took the title with a

and 28 digs.

WOHS advances in regional softball tourney


West Orange High won its
opening game in the regional
fastpitch softball tournament
last Thursday, defeating host
Lake Mary 16-1. The Lady
Warriors wasted no time in
rebounding from the District
4 championship loss to
Boone in 13 innings the pre-
vious week by jumping on
Lake Mary with 3 runs in the
top of the first inning.
After winning 21 consecu-
tive games, the Lady War-
riors' loss to Boone put them
on the road for the regional
quarterfinal.
WOHS (25-2) opened the
game with a double by
Andrea Migliori, and Megan
Squartino followed with a
base on balls.
With 2 outs, Kristen Stew-
art drew a walk to load the
bases, and Kristen Crowe
and Heather Durrance fol-
lowed with run-scoring hits.
Crowe singled to drive in the
first run, and Durrance's
double made the score 3-0 in


the top of the first.
In the third inning, it was
Durrance again in the middle
of the damage. A lead-off
walk to Leslee Stephens was
followed by a sacrifice bunt
by Crowe. That's when Dur-
rance doubled again to put
the score at 4-0.
One out later, Shahlisa
Shirley drove home Dur-
rance with a single, giving
the Lady Warriors a 5-0 lead
going into the bottom of the
third.
In the top of the fourth, the
West Orange girls stretched
their lead to 8-0. Back-to-
back singles with one put by
Jamie Rausch and Stewart
were followed by Stephens'
third home run of the season,
as she smashed a Hope
Bitzer pitch deep into the
night, over the wall.
The Lady Warriors went
on to explode for 8 runs in
the top of the sixth inning to
finish the game through the
10-run rule.


In this inning, Stewart and
Durrance had RBI singles,
Jenn Henry knocked in three
runs with the bases-loaded
triple, and Squartino topped
off the inning with a three-
run homer to cap the scoring
at 16.
Stewart pitched the first
three innings to pick up her
14th victory of the season.
She surrendered 2 hits and
one base on balls and struck
out 2 batters. Southpaw
Rausch pitched the final
three innings,, giving up one
earned run and one walk and
2 hits while striking out 3.
The Lady Warriors were
set to play in their next round
vs. Deltona on Tuesday night
of this week, after presstime.
If they won this game, they
would advance to the region-
al finals this Friday night at
either Boone or Winter
Springs. A win in the finals
would place them in the state
Final Four next week in
Tampa.


Super Mario signs with Coastal Carolina


By John Magrino


The courtship of Mario Sisin-
ni stretched from Maine to
Florida, but his final decision
will take him near Myrtle
Beach, S.C.
Sisinni, a Dr. Phillips record-
setting point guard, inked his
name to a basketball scholarship
with Coastal Carolina Universi-
ty with his parents and coach by
his side.
Coastal Carolina recently
hired Buzz Peterson, former
head coach of the Tennessee
Volunteers, and one of his first
recruiting phone calls was to
Sisinni.
"Coach Peterson and the play-
ers made me feel very welcome
when I was there," said Sisinni.
"He's a great coach, he has big
plans for the program, and I'm
anxious to be a big part it."
CCU is located in Conway,
S.C., approximately nine miles
from Myrtle Beach, and has had
a solid history of success on the
court. The Chanticleers (nick-


named after the quick-thinking
rooster in Chaucer's Canterbury
Tales) made two NCAA Tourna-
ment appearances in the early
1990s and are poised to return
their program to prominence
under Peterson.
"We are very happy to have
Mario as (one of) our first two
signees at Coastal," Peterson
said. "They both know what it
takes to win, as they have been a
part of very successful programs
in Florida and North Carolina.
Having players who have been a
part of winning programs is key
when trying to take a program to
a new level. We believe they
will be important players for us,
both next season and for the
next four years."
Sisinni has been the floor gen-
eral for the Panthers for four
years, setting the school record
for assists (438) and steals
(213). This year he was named
Honorable Mention All-State,
first team All-County as well as
first team All-Metro Confer-
ence.


Sisinni caught Peterson's eye
when DP played at the Chick-
fil-A Basketball Classic in Myr-
tle Beach over the winter break.
Coastal, along with Jack-
sonville, High Point, Florida
Southern and Maine, made
strong offers for him, but Myrtle
Beach reminded Sisinni of
Orlando.
"The school just felt right for
me," he said. "My parents are
extremely happy with my deci-
sion and it's not very far from
here either so, they can come up
as much as they want. It's far
enough, but not too far," he
joked.
Sisinni doesn't have much
time left in Orlando, however,
as he plans on getting up to
school soon to begin summer
classes. "I want to jump right in
and get adjusted," he said. He
plans on majoring in business
management with the intention
of starting his own business in
the future. "My dad has been a
big part of my life. He's his own
boss. I'd like to do the same."

onships recently. The Lady


Titans placed third, overall at the

meet by Razzie Smith, who fin-
ished third in the 200 meters and
fourth in the 100 meters. Kyle
Allen will represent the Titans
after capturing second place in
the 1600 meters. The OHS

ing third at regionals.

Community Health Centers plans annual golf fundraiser at OCN


Community Health Centers
Inc., which operates the Winter
Garden Children's Health Cen-
ter and Winter Garden Family
Health Center, will host its
annual golf fund-raiser Thurs-
day, May 19.
The charity golf tournament
is set for the Panther Lake Golf
Course at Orange County
National Golf Center. Registra-

Players, sponsors
needed for charity golf
tournament for school
nurse program
A charity golf tournament to
benefit the Health Central Founda-
tion's School Nurse Program will
take place May 23 at the Golden
Bear Club at Keene's Pointe.
Registered players and sponsors
will be invited to a wine-tasting
party the evening before the event.
The entry fee is $200 per player.
Sponsorships are available from
$350 for a tee sign to $10,000 for a
presenting sponsorship. Sponsor-
ships entitle donors to a variety of
benefits, including corporate logos
imprinted on merchandise awarded
at the tournament, golf foursomes,
hole and cart signage and tickets to
the Foundation's annual gala.
School nurses, the registered
nurses that staff school clinics, are
often the only health care providers
that many at-risk children see. Yet
the cost of keeping a nurse on cam-
pus falls to the school, which must
raise the money through fundrais-
ing efforts or parent donations.
The Foundation, in partnership
with Orange County Public
Schools, subsidizes school nurses
in 31 elementary, middle and high
schools through its Nine for Nurs-
es campaign. This project is aimed
at raising nine dollars for every
child enrolled in school. The cost
of keeping a nurse at a school is
approximately $27,000 annually.
The Foundation provides $14,500
per nurse per school. Through this
effort more than 40,000 students
received care during the current
school year.
Additionally, a portion of the
proceeds of the tournament will be
used to purchase a specially
equipped van to transport seniors
to the Adult Day Care Program at
Health Central Park.
For more information or to reg-
ister for the golf tournament, call
407-296-1492.

Teacher awarded grant
Glyniss Hudson, a science
teacher at West Orange High,
was one of the five Orlando
teachers who received a $10,000
travel grant that enabled them to
attend the National Science
Teachers Association's 53rd
National Convention for profes-
sional development opportuni-
ties. It was held in Dallas recent-
ly.
The grant was provided by the
ExxonMobil Fuels Marketing
Company-operated service sta-
tions, and the winners were
selected by science professors at
the University of Central Florida.
In addition to attending the
NSTA convention, the teachers
were given a $500 award for a
classroom project upon comple-
tion of the conference.
"Recognizing the positive
impact qualified teachers have
on the youth in our communities
is an important component to our
daily operations," said Ben
Source, U.S. CORS sales man-
ager of ExxonMobile. "That is
why we are proud to promote
math and science education and
reward these educators who
have excelled in their profession
with the opportunity to attend the
NSTA convention."
During the convention, the
teachers had the opportunity to
participate in professional devel-
opment institutes. In addition, the
convention provided teachers
with a forum to meet and share
ideas with other science educa-
tors across the country.

Ocoee Hi
S By Mike Armbruster
Principal

I have to say that this has been
one of the best weeks I have had
in preparing for the new school
opening mostly because I had
the opportunity to meet and see
several of our students who will
be attending Ocoee High
School. They are already getting
involved and well on their way
to becoming Knights.
Unfortunately, I did miss our
dance try-outs as I was out of
town, but I was able to attend the
first practice of our football
team. Although. it will be a
young team, it is obviously a
team that will bring a lot of heart
to the program. As I looked out
and spoke with them, I couldn't
help but feel a sense of how spe-
cial this first year will truly be.
As we bring students from
five different middle schools,"
two high schools, a variety of
private schools and home-
school environments together to
create the first generation and
the first class of Ocoee High, it
will be a year like no. other I
have experienced in my career.
I also attended the first day of
cheerleading try-outs where 78
young ladies were preparing for
a rigorous week of learning and
practice, culminating in team
selections on Friday. Again, the
energy and excitement was
amazing.
This past week was also
Teacher Appreciation Week, and
I cannot express how much I
appreciate every one of the
teachers who have taken the step
to becoming a Knight by joining

bur team. Each one of them is
leaving a comfort zone that they
could easily choose to stay with
to enter into a school unlike any
other in our area. For that alone,
they are to be recognized and
commended.
But even more, they will be
leaving a familiar environment
to enter a school that currently
has teachers hired from 35 dif-
ferent schools. They will be
entering an environment in
which they will collaborate,
fully align curriculum and
assessments, work in smaller
learning communities, work
with struggling students in guid-
ed/facilitated learning clusters,
connect to all students in their
classrooms and work everyday
to achieve our vision that every
student will graduate..
Yes, indeed, these teachers
need to be appreciated for what
they have already done just by
stepping out and signing on to
Ocoee High. There is no doubt
in my mind that they will be a
force to be reckoned with as
they work to create a healthy
community for all students,
where the fundamental purpose
is learning.
As mentioned last week, we
will be having our next
PTSA/SAC meetings on May
19th in the media center at West-
side Tech. The PTSA meeting
will be from 6-7 p.m.; and the


I update
SAC meeting; will follow from
7-8. Feel free to attend either
one or both.
Otherwise, things are moving
along as planned. Equipment
orders are being processed, staff.
is still being hired, the master
schedule is being put together,
and student registration is on-
going.
Without sounding like a dis-
claimer, I do want to share that
this first year will not be the end
- but rather the beginning of
a new way of doing things, so I
am asking up front for your
patience as we all come together
in July to build the school %e
have been planning for the past
12 months..It will be worth all
the effort when all is said and
done.
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 or visit our Web site
at http://www.ocoeehigh-
school.ocps.net.
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.

Spirit Week
Lakeview Middle recently held
Spirit Week to raise money for its
Nines for Nurses campaign. It
was a huge success, and the
school extends a big thank-you
to all the students, staff and par-
ents for their contributions.
A dollar was paid by all who
participated each day, except for
the volleyball game on Friday, or
students could buy a wristband
for $5 and participate in every-
thing for the whole week.
Jars were displayed at lunch
with pictures of the administra-
tors on the front. Students were
encouraged to drop money in the
jar of the administrator they
would most like to see get a pie
in the face. Some administrators
did some serious campaigning to
urge students notto put money in
their jars but in someone else's.
On Inside Out Day, everyone
wore clothes inside out. Students
voted on the, winners, who
received gifts. Prizes were also
awarded for creativity on Hat
Day.
On Dress Up Day, students


wore tuxedoes, gowns, dresses
and suits, and everyone looked
great. Students winning prizes
were eligible for a drawing on Fri-
day, which included the chance
to get to throw the pie.
The final day featured a volley-
ball game between volunteers
from the teachers and staff and
students from the boys and girls
volleyball team.
The total amount collected for
the week was $5,193.70. The
eighth grade collected the most
money and won an ice cream
party.
Robert Ryner, the assistant
principal and eighth-grade
administrator, had the most
money collected. He was so
good-natured in taking the
whipped cream pie in the face
that he was asked to do it a sec-
ond time to be sure all the stu-
dents got to see. He ran over and
gave Mrs. Lee, the seventh-
grade administrator, a big hug
just to be sure she got a share of
the pie.
A big thank-you goes to these
businesses and individuals for

and Leo Dempsey.


The Woman's Club of Ocoee recently sponsored its annual
5th-Grade Creative Expression Celebration. This year's theme
was 'What Is Community Service and Why Is It Important?'
Students could choose to write an essay, poem or create an
art piece on the topic. The winners from Citrus Elementary
were Brooke Strange (essay), Lais Oliveira (poem) and Caroli-
na Vaca (art piece). The girls were awarded blue ribbons at a
special luncheon held at the Woman's Club.

As I See It...

A Comment & Study of the Scriptures Remembering George Gano


Although we have been admonished in the Bible, "Do
not. conform any longer to the pattern of this world"
(Romans 12:1), or as Phillips paraphrases it, "Don't let the
world around you squeeze you into its own mold," we have
somehow paid little attention to this warning at least so
it seems. If we are to make a difference in our society we
must resolve to obey our Lord in this admonition, for hard-
ly a day goes by without persistent pressure to conform to
the standards and ideas of the world around us. Such pres-
sure is imposed upon us by the adversary via such avenues
as the media.
The adversary? Satan? Isn't that insinuating a
great deal? Maybe. But if God says, "Do not conform"
and another says, however subtly, "Conform," who is it?
Who, more than he,-would be interested in what is happen-
ing to the family structure in our nation? In the reshaping

of a value system away from the standards and principles
for living set forth in the Word by our Creator? In a code
of religiosity and piety rather than dynamic transformation
within to the image of Christ.
Make no mistake, society and the media may be the
vehicles by which we are carried to the idol of conformity
and appearance, but it is an altar conceived by the adver-
sary. If those of us called Christians can be convinced oth-
erwise, can be cajoled into thinking that much of what the
world espouses today is "not all that bad," then not only
will the adversary have succeeded in building his altar for
our worship, but he will also have succeeded in getting us
to worship there!

A Day of Beauty raises funds for Westside Foundation


Westside Tech recently hosted A Day
of Beauty. The combined efforts of the
commercial foods and culinary arts, flo-
ral design, massage therapy and cosme-
"tology programs gave ticket holders a.
day of fun and relaxation.
The event was held to introduce the
community to some of the programs at
Westside and to raise funds for the Foun-
dation of Westside Tech.
The Foundation provides financial
support for students attending the techni-
cal center by providing scholarships and
other necessary enhancements.
Carol Heard, foundation fund-raising
coordinator, and Maria Wells, executive
director for the foundation, chaired the
event. Ken Wells, technology coordina-
tor, acted as official photographer. Mary
Parker, former staff member and current
foundation member, assisted throughout
the day. Dr. Peter Berry, assistant direc-
tor, coordinated the logistics of trans-
portation and facilities, and Penney Park-
er, tech prep coordinator, was on hand to
lend assistance in several, areas.
Vendors were invited to participate in
the day. Each vendor, in turn, provided
an item for the silent auction that benefit-
ed the foundation.
Seventy participants were given a
choice of any or all eight services for a


half-day session. Everyone was treated to
a luncheon, a long-stemmed red rose and
door prizes in the Outback Caf6, the
restaurant of the culinary arts program.
The floral design students, under the
guidance of instructor Edna Holzworth,
decorated the cafeteria. The students cre-
ated a garden gazebo featuring a foun-
tain, which was provided with funds
donated by Great Clips and Action Weld-
ing.
Several centerpieces created by the
students were displayed in the cafeteria.
The commercial food and culinary arts
students catered the buffet, which con-
sisted of finger sandwiches, fresh fruit
and salads, under the leadership of
instructors Ben Holmes and Marguerite
Jirau.
Students provided services of mani-
cures, pedicures and hair styles, under
the supervision of Michelle Holder, cos-
metology department chair, and Mike
Wells, Lauraine McDonough and Jan
Davis, cosmetology instructors.
The Great Clips education team of
Jenn Linhares and Leslie Rodriquez, led
by Michelle Bates, general manager, was
on hand to provide haircuts and hair-
styles. The students assisted the team by
shampooing and styling hair for the
guests. Roberta McCaffrey, Patty Green


16B The West Orange 7Trees Thursday, May 12, 2005


and Lou Ann Marris, Mary Kay consul-
tants, provided makeup.
Lorena Haynes, massage therapy
instructor, and Patti Teufel, cosmetology
instructor, supervised students providing
facials, body wraps and chair massages.
Participants were transported from the
cosmetology lab and the massage therapy
room by golf carts driven by Mike Wells;
Tom Whitman, Phi Beta Lambda presi-
dent; and Walt Cobb, school director.
In addition to the Westside golf cart,
golf carts from the West Orange Country
Club and Dr. Phillips ACE Center were
also on loan for the day.
Westside Tech would like to thank
everyone for making the day such a suc-
cess. Those who purchased a ticket for
the day or donated items or their time
played a role in enriching the lives of the
students.
A special thank-you goes to The West
Orange Times for the ad for the event and
for two one-year subscriptions to The
West Orange Times.
Also, the following vendors and busi-
nesses are greatly appreciated for their
contributions: Air Gas, Creative Memo-
ries, Great Clips, Mary Kay Products,
Party Lite, Premier Jewelry, Viola's Bou-
tique, JC Penney of Seminole Town Cen-
ter and Home Interiors.
