Ocoee to hold 2 public F

hearings on budget


By Mary Anne Swickerath

The Ocoee City Commission will
hold its first public hearing on the 2005-
06 budget next Thursday, Sept. 15, in
City Hall with the second and final
public hearing set for Thursday, Sept.
29. Both meetings will begin at 7 p.m.
City Manager Rob Frank, in his bud-
get message to the commission, ex-
plained that he balanced the proposed
$27,845,304 General Fund budget by
using the current property-tax rate of
4.5789. The commission approved a
tentative tax rate of 4.95 to give Frank
some flexibility during the budget pro-
cess. The actual tax rate for 2005-06
will be voted on at the final public hear-
ing, and this rate can be lower than the
tentative rate but not higher (unless ev-
ery property owner is notified by mail).
This budget also includes a stormwa-
ter utility fund of $1,630,500, a wa-
ter/wastewater utility fund of
$6,941,830 and a solid waste utility
fund of $1,857,800. The total for all
four funds is more than $38 million.
Frank also said in his budget mes-
sage that the driving force behind the
budget continues to be growth.
"Property tax revenues are project-
ed to increase about 18 percent over
last year, reflecting the significant in-
crease in property and cost of homes
within the city. The budget includes a
sizeable beginning cash balance com-
prised of unexpended revenues from
the prior fiscal year and the excess
funds realized from the sale of the En-


terprise Street property."
The major projects in Ocoee will
continue to be improving the city's
transportation infrastructure.
"Phase one of the Bluford Avenue
widening, phase two of the Clarke
Road reconstruction project [from
White Road to West Colonial Drive]
and numerous resurfacing projects are
funded," he said. "The city's road
resurfacing and sidewalk program will
continue to improve the city's street
infrastructure on a priority basis."
Also planned are drainage improve-
ment projects for Pioneer Key 1 and 2
mobile-home parks and Center Street.
The new budget will also address
the growing demand for recreation and
leisure activities. The aquatic program
will expand, and the first phase of
Hackney-Prairie Park will be. con-
structed this fall and will feature a play-
ground, shelter, walking path and park-
ing area. Lights will be added to the
soccer fields at the Jim Beech Center
on A.D. Mims Road.
Frank also noted that many of the
expenditures the city faces "are the re-
sult of outside forces beyond our con-
trol."
He said having a new high school is
something everyone looked forward
to, but with the new school comes
added expenses for the city.
"In this case, we will add two police
officers dedicated to the high school
and will spend additional funds for nec-
essary infrastructure to support the
school," he said.

Schools will rely on
parents to drive many
student athletes to
sporting events.

By Michael Laval

Students won't be getting a free ride
anymore for sports programs and ex-
tra-curricular activities at public
schools.
Orange County Public Schools Su-
perintendent Ron Blocker announced
last Wednesday that interruptions of
diesel fuel deliveries and rising costs
as a result of Hurricane Katrina have
forced the School Board to temporar-
ily cancel transportation for all after-
school events and field trips.
Uncertain whether fuel would ar-
rive as planned over the weekend,
Blocker warned the public last
Wednesday that a fleet of 1,100 bus-
es responsible for taking 73,000 stu-
dents to school each day could be
grounded when classes resumed after
the Labor Day holiday. The school
district, Blocker said, was down to its
last 4,000 gallons of diesel fuel.
Ample shipments arrived in the fol-
lowing days, though, to guarantee that
regular school bus service would con-
tinue through this week. Parents of Or-
ange County students are encouraged
to continue monitoring bulletins
recorded on the OCPS emergency in-
formation line at 407-318-3000. Up-
dates are also available online at
www.ocps.net.
"Hurricane Katrina has impacted
Central Florida more than we know,"
Blocker said. "The games will con-


tinue, but we have to stretch that dol-
lar to get kids to school."
Orange County Public Schools will
not cancel any sporting events; it sim-
ply will not provide transportation for
away games. The burden will fall to
individual schools to drive student ath-
letes to competitions, but many might
not be able to carry the load. Non-var-
sity teams will likely be first on the
chopping block.
All junior varsity and freshman foot-
ball games set for last Thursday
evening have been tentatively resched-
uled for Oct. 10. The status of this
Thursday's J.V. and freshman foot-
ball games were to be decided at a
meeting of Metro Conference athlet-
ic directors held after press deadline
Tuesday afternoon.
Girls volleyball matches across the
county scheduled for Wednesday have
been postponed indefinitely. Many
students participating in sporting
events or activities such as band will
depend on parents, or fellow students,
to provide transportation.
"We are asking parents to under-
stand the situation and adapt," said Dr.
Phillips Athletic Director John Ma-
grino. "That means kids will be rely-
ing on their parents heavily to get them
to certain events this year. We will do
our best to get kids to away games us-
ing what we have."
While Dr. Phillips has two of its
own activity buses and four certified
drivers on faculty, most schools do not
have that luxury.
West Orange, Ocoee and Olympia
high school officials said they will rely

State warning to Windermere:

stop overnight boat parking


- The continued and
permanent mooring of
boats along the shore of
Lake Down could be at
an end.

By Kathy Aber

Boat owners who have been
mooring their watercraft along the
shore of Lake Down might have
to find a new location to drop an-
chor.
The Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection issued a
warning to the town of Winder-
mere on Aug. 25 that possible vi-
olations of state law related to
"unauthorized mooring of vessels
on state sovereign submerged lands
within Lake Down" might exist.
The West Orange Times spoke
with Jeff Prather, spokesperson for
the Florida DEP Central District, on
Wednesday of last week about the
warning letter. Prather said a meet-
ing has been scheduled for Sept.
12 to discuss the matter with Win-
dermere officials.
"It' s my understanding that what
we have is multiple boat moor-
ings...about 20 boats are moored in
the shallows," said Prather. Leav-
ing boats moored for multiple days
leads to more pollution and prop
dredging, Prather explained.
"That's why we're getting in-
volved out there," said the DEP
spokesman.
Lake Down is part of the Butler
Chain of Lakes, which has been
designated as Outstanding Florida
Waters since 1983.
Town Manager Cecilia Bernier
said Tuesday that she called to
schedule the meeting with DEP of-
ficials after receiving the letter.
Bernier said the letter is "a little
vague" and does not say there is a
violation but rather there might be.
"I have a list of questions I want
cleared up," said the town manag-
er.
If boats are pulled up on the
town-owned street end, Bernier
said, she investigates to determine
ownership of the boats. Then, she
informs non-resident owners to re-
move boats. They have complied in
the past, she said. Bemier allows
boats owned by residents to remain
anchored on town land because
Windermere has no ordinance gov-
erning this situation.

Windermere officials will meet with representatives of the Flori-
da Department of Environmental Protection Sept. 12 to address
the long-term mooring of boats in the waters of Lake Down, specif-
ically in the area at the end of Fifth Avenue in Windermere. The
DEP is concerned about the detrimental effect the boat parking
could have on the lake's water quality.


Bernier believes the town has no
jurisdiction regarding boats an-
chored in the water or tied to trees.
"I want to find out who has ju-
risdiction over that," she said.
Windermere has riparian rights
to the shoreline of Lake Down be-
tween Third and Fifth avenues be-
cause the town holds the easement,
according to state officials.
DEP spokesman Prather said,
"We arranged the meeting to de-
termine the easement language."
When asked if there were simi-
lar situations along other shoreline
areas in town, Prather said he was
not aware of any. "We have some
good staff, but we can't have eye-
balls on every location," he said.
"If someone calls us with a com-
plaint, we review it."
The DEP examined the boat-
mooring situation in this location
after receiving a complaint and
photographs from Windermere res-
ident Faith Fairbrother. She record-


ed boat moorings, along with ve-
hicles parked in the shoreline ar-
eas, over a period of time from
March through July.
According to the DEP file, Fair-
brother, who lives on Magnolia
Street, is "concerned about boaters
pulling their boats up and parking
them on the shoreline, where veg-
etation, including torpedo grass,
cattails and primrose willow, cur-
rently exist."
Fairbrother and her husband, Si-
mon, are plaintiffs with six other
property owners between Third and
Fifth avenues on Lake Down who
filed a lawsuit against the town of
Windermere to gain ownership to
this easement area.
The DEP file also notes that bi-
ologist Kelli Gladding with the Bu-
reau of Invasive Plant Management
notified Windermere that if the
shoreline vegetation diminished in

"I'm not sure what [DEP] wants us

Shepard said he believes the agency is
looking at a larger section of the shore-
line.
Bernier said she will ask the DEP to
clarify if this warning would apply to
all areas of shoreline in town.
When Shepard was asked why the
town has not dealt with this long-term
boat parking issue before, he replied:
"You try to address what's brought to
us. The town doesn't look for reasons
to pick fights with citizens."
He said as far as he knew, the town
had not received any complaints about
boat or vehicles parked along the
shoreline:
Bernier said Fairbrother had brought
some of these issues to the town, but
the town manager believes the issues
in the complaint are not within the
town's jurisdiction.

Bernier said there is no problem
with vehicles parked along the street
right-of-way.
Until the meeting next Monday, it's
unclear how the issue will be resolved.
Shepard said DEP would have to ex-
plain what it wants the town to do. He
speculated that DEP might want the
town to put up signs or barriers or pa-
trol the shoreline.
DEP spokesman Prather made it
clear that anchoring a boat temporar-
ily is not a problem but creating a ma-
rina for long-term boat storage is.
"We will certainly work with the
[town] of Windermere," said Prather.
"We will all come to the table on how
to resolve this for the highest level of
protection for Lake Down."
Bernier said she would include a
discussion of the DEP warning in the
Town Council agenda for Sept. 13,
when she will report to the town offi-
cials on the previous day's meeting.

Correction and
clarification
In the Sept. 1, 2005, issue of

be 'removed' from the meeting
for disruptive conduct at the re-
quest of Mayor Quesinberry."
Winter Garden P.D. Lt. Jon
Johnson told the Times that he
had "two police officers escort
him from the building."
The West Orange Times inac-
curately stated that Balderrama
was escorted out of the meeting
for disorderly conduct and shout-

- Donations needed to
purchase 400 new books
for Winter Garden
community center.

By Kathy Aber

Veterinarian Monique Bollhoefer
is spearheading a drive to renovate the
library at the Maxey Community Cen-
ter in Winter Garden and to bring in
some new reading programs. She
hopes to create a functional and com-
fortable library at the center with ad-
ditional plans to establish reading op-
portunities for youth and adults in the
Winter Garden community.
"Reading is one of my loves," said
Monique, the wife of Winter Garden
City Manager Mike Bollhoefer. "I
would have never gotten to where I
am without reading."
Bollhoefer was inspired by the late
Winter Garden Commissioner John
Harriman's efforts to bring books and
computers to the city's children and
started to look for a way to establish


literacy programs. Renovating the ex-
isting library at the Maxey Community
Center is the current focus of Boll-
hoefer's effort.
Her goal is to raise $8,000 with half
of the funding committed to renova-
tions and half for purchasing books
and establishing reading programs.
John Risper, manager of the Max-
ey Center, is eager for the help.
"This is something we desperately
need," said Risper, "and I welcome
the opportunity."
Bollhoefer anticipates offering pro-
grams and storytime for children of
all ages, including infants, as well as
establishing book clubs for all ages.
Several other Winter Garden resi-
dents have jumped in to help. Julie
Butler and the Winter Garden Her-
itage Foundation helped launch the
fund-raising drive, and as of Thurs-
day, $700 had already been donated.
Border's bookstore in Ocoee has of-
fered a 25 percent discount on book or-
ders, and Boy Scout Troop 210 from
the First United Methodist Church of
Winter Garden has volunteered to


help. Other citizens have volunteered
to paint and help decorate the library
area.
In addition, Bollhoefer is looking
for volunteers to read and tutor chil-
dren. She also needs a librarian or me-
dia specialist to volunteer to catalog the
books once they arrive.
To make a donation, make checks
payable to Dr. Monique Bollhoefer
and send to: The Maxey Library Fund,
8285 Stone Road, Apopka, FL 32703.
Please write The Maxey Library Fund
in the memo portion of the check. Do-
nations of new books or used books in
excellent condition will also be ac-
cepted.
Bollhoefer believes that reading is
essential in building a foundation for
a child's educational and life experi-
ence and hopes the Maxey reading
room will provide an avenue for the
community to reinforce the value of
reading to children.
For more information, call Boll-
hoefer at 407-421-8848.

In our opinion

Editorial


Open your hearts to
After our surprise visits last year from
Charley, Frances, Jeanne and Ivan, Floridians
know all too well the emo-
tions that follow the effects of
a storm. The fears and frus-
trations that we felt with pow-


er outages, damage to our
homes and all the disruptions
that we dealt with pale in -
comparison to the scale of the
destruction from Katrina.
There has been a steady
flow of criticism toward the
governmental agencies re-
sponsible for relief, a lot of
media attention about looting
and some well-deserved fin-


Red C


ger pointing about ignoring
what many predicted was inevitable. None
of these political "talking points" diminish
the needs of the victims of this disaster.


the Katrina victims
We hope our readers have already or will
contribute to the relief in some way. As with
other disasters there is a mul-
titude of agencies to con-
tribute to. Many local church-
es and clubs are collecting
money, clothes and other
items that can be used by the
victims.
Two large and important re-
lief funds are the Red Cross
(redcross..org) and the newly
formed Bush Clinton Katrina
riCUin Fund (bushclintonkatrina-
M ross fund.org). Former presidents
George Bush and Bill Clin-
ton, who teamed up so suc-
cessfully to raise money for
the victims of the tsunami last year, are now
working together again in their own "back-
yard."

Letters to the editor


Support for transportation concurrency urged


Editor,

Growth is continuing in Orange County, whether we
like it or not! Very few of us like change, but it happens,
and we learn to adapt. One of the problems, though, is
allowing growth to happen and not preparing for it ahead
of time.
Growth may be unavoidable, but traffic congestion
isn't. State transportation concurrency laws were in-
tended to ensure the counties didn't approve more de-
S velopment than their roads can handle. Orange County
has chosen to use a loophole in the law that allows de-
velopers to buy their way out of concurrency, but only
under very limited circumstances
Commissioner Teresa Jacobs has questioned Orange
County's use of this loophole and has reviewed care-
fully the formula used to assess developers/builders for
their fair share for providing roads to accommodate their
development projects in Orange County. What she found
was quite alarming.
Currently, the formula being used by Orange County
in these "pay-as-you-go" agreements is not the one re-
quired by the county code, nor is it the formula all oth-
er counties utilizing this loophole use. Commissioner
Jacobs' research indicates that the formula being used has
granted deep discounts to developers.
Comments have been made by county staff that the
formula is difficult to understand, that no one really un-
derstands the formula, that they are following state growth
management laws and Orange County codes, including
the county's Growth Management Comprehensive Plan.
However, none of that explains why developers are walk-
ing away from the table with approved projects while
only paying far less than 50 percent of their share of the
needed road improvements.
Many projects are being placed on the County Com-
missioners' Consent Agenda without giving the public
the opportunity to express their concerns, ask questions
and to have those questions and concerns addressed. Not
surprising, a growing number of these agreements are for
development in the Horizon West area.
Each of the over 80 agreements executed by the coun-
ty affect roads that are or will be, based on previous de-
velopment approvals, rated "F." In fact, 11 of those
agreements affect County Road 535 and Reams Road
and many more agreements are in the pipeline.
A recent study states that Orlando has the third worst
auto fatality death rate in the nation. What does that do
to our image? How will that rating attract families to all
the homes being built in the area? Needless to say, it
won't! One of the reasons for this could easily be due to
the speeding and weaving in and out by drivers frus-
trated by the never-ending traffic jams they experience
to and from work. Passing on the right by using exit


ramps as bypass lanes has become quite popular.
No one is perfect we all make mistakes. It's well
known that Orange County is pro development; how-
ever, we cannot continue development without improv-
ing the roads and infrastructure needed to maintain a
reasonable "grade" for our roadways. If we are not charg-
ing the appropriate amount, then let's admit it and cor-
rect the situation. Currently, the Orange County
comptroller, Martha Haynie, is conducting a review of
the situation.
Commissioner Jacobs has brought this problem be-
fore the Board of County Commissioners, and, yet, the
board has continued to approve development. Develop-
ers/builders submit approximately 300 new projects each
year, including residential and commercial. Three hun-
dred. We cannot continue to approve these projects if
they are not going to pay their fair share.

Florida's municipal electric utilities has issued an urgent
request for all Floridians to conserve energy as the after-
math of Hurricane Katrina has begun to affect the state's
ability to produce electricity.
The flow of natural gas -used to produce approximately
34 percent of the state's electricity has been reduced by
damage to production facilities and infrastructure in the Gulf
Coast region.
"Florida is receiving about 70 percent of the natural gas
it needs to produce electricity," said Barry Moline, exec-
utive director of the Florida Municipal Electric Associa-
tion (FMEA). "Obviously, this sharp reduction in avail-
able energy could limit the electricity that can be produced
and distributed to customers. That is why energy conser-
vation is absolutely crucial."
Utilities around the state are already moving to back-up
fuel supplies, but those supplies are only designed to last
for days, not weeks. Simple conservation measures will
greatly help extend the effectiveness of those supplies.
Here are some suggestions:
Adjust thermostat settings for air conditioning to 78F
degrees or higher, if health permits; keep temperature
readings constant until notified that the energy shortage has
passed.
When you're not going to be home for an extended pe-
riod, raise the thermostat setting to 82 degrees or higher.
Close curtains and blinds to help insulate homes and


Fuel-saving t
Here are some tips to cut gasoline costs from AAA
Michigan:
Slow down. Even a 5 mph decrease in speed can
affect gas mileage.
Keep tires properly inflated. Under-inflated tires
can cut fuel economy by a half percent per pound of
pressure below recommended levels.
Give your car a full tuneup. Include a regular oil
and oil filter change. A poorly tuned engine can in-
crease fuel use by more than 50 percent.
Use the proper grade of gasoline. Do not purchase
more expensive mid-grade or premium gasoline unless
recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.
Don't let a vehicle idle for more than a minute.


Old


buildings against cooling loss.
Avoid using room air conditioners; turn them off when
you leave the room or home.
Reduce the use of all non-essential electric appliances.
Run your dishwasher and wash and dry your laundry lat-
er in the evening.
Turn off all non-essential lighting and electric appli-
ances, such as pool pumps.
Turn off lights when you leave a room or when they
aren't needed.
Shower later in the evening or early in the morning.
Leave refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much
as possible.
If someone in your home is dependent on electric-
powered, life-sustaining medical equipment, check back-
up facilities.
Cook outdoors, use a microwave oven or small ap-
pliances like a toaster oven or electric skillet to avoid heat-
ing up the kitchen and adding moisture to the air. Mi-
crowaves use less than half the power of a conventional
oven and cook food in about one-fourth the time.
About FMEA: The Florida Municipal Electric Asso-
ciation (FMEA) represents the unified interests of 33 pub-
lic power communities across the state, which provide
electricity to more than two million of Florida's residen-
tial and business consumers. For more information, visit
www.publicpower.com.


ps from AAA
Idling can consume up to a gallon of gas per hour.
Idling also wastes more fuel than restarting the en-
gine.
Maintain a consistent speed. Accelerate gently,
brake gradually and avoid hard stops.
Plan errands. Combine outings into one trip or lo-
cation to spend less time on the road.
Pare extra weight. The excess weight of car top
carriers, trailers and other vehicles cause engines to work
harder and burn more gas.
Car pool when possible.
Travel during off-peak times to avoid rush hour.
Check the engine oil level when buying gas. Cars
with properly lubricated engines run more efficiently.

If you can't find a house that you
want to buy, one alternative may be
to build your own home. Here are a
few suggestions if you decide to
build.
Be sure that you understand any
zoning issues or neighborhood
covenants which could impact the
size or style of the house that you
want to build. If the lot you like is
located in a historic district, you
won't be able to build a contempo-
rary home. make sure that the wa-
ter mains and sewer lines allow for
easy hookup, and that electricity,
gas, and telephone lines are available.
If the land has a steep grade, you
should determine if retaining walls
or special footings will be needed.
Most land contracts have contin-
gencies that allow buyers to verify
the boundaries and do a feasibility
study to see if the property is suit-
able for building. There are three
important professionals you should
consult about the design and im-
plementation of your plans -an en-
gineer, a contractor and a profes-
sional Realtor.
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
on my personal message line, (407)
570-0318.

Your

Money

By Dennis R.
Gillard, CPA

THE AMT: WILL
THIS TAX HIT YOU?
The alternative minimum tax (AMT) is a grow-
ing problem. Originally affecting a small num-
ber of wealthy people, this add-on tax system
could hit one-third of us by 2010 unless the
law is changed.
The AMT rules require two sets of tax com-
putations. First, you figure your tax the regu-
lar way. Then you compute it again, under rules
that include fewer deductions, additional in-
come categories, and different tax rates. Fi-
nally, you compare the results and pay whichev-
er tax is higher.
Even simple returns can be affected. In fact, if
the law isn't changed, it's estimated that by
2007, nearly 95% of AMT revenue will come
from disallowing deductions for state and local
taxes, personal and dependent exemptions, the
standard deduction, and miscellaneous item-
ized deductions.
How could this result from a system intended
to target a wealthy few? The original AMT pro-
vided a large exemption that generally offset
any loss of deductions like those listed above.
Unfortunately, the exemption wasn't indexed
for inflation. As a result, even middle-income
taxpayers began to be hit by the AMT. With-
out a fix, 33 million will owe the tax by 2010,
including 70% of those making $75,000 to
$100,000.
Determining whether you will be subject to the
AMT is crucial in your tax planning. This is
because many traditional tax planning maneu-
vers, such as prepaying state and local taxes
and bunching miscellaneous itemized deductions,
become useless if you are subject to the AMT.
Taxpayers who have incentive stock options
(ISOs) also need to take special care because the
AMT may affect you when you choose to ex-
ercise the options.
Obtaining the assistance of a tax professional
may be the best tax planning technique of all.
The alternative minimum tax is highly com-
plex, and professional help in this area may be
essential to avoid an unexpected tax bill. For any
assistance you need, contact our office.

Valdes planning

downtown W.G.

benefit concert


Bert Valdes, owner of the local
MoonCricket Grill, is trying to put to-
gether a'downtown Winter Garden
benefit concert next weekend.
He was working Tuesday (after
presstime) to get the go-ahead from
the city of Winter Garden to hold the
street party the afternoon of Saturday,
Sept. 17.
If all goes as planned, the concert
will be staged to raise funds to help
victims of Hurricane Katrina. Local
bands will perform, and churches and


other organizations will be invited to
participate by selling food and bever-
ages. All money raised would go to
hurricane relief, not the individual or-
ganizations.
There would be a nominal admission
fee.
Groups wanting to participate can
call Valdes at 407-905-5325 or e-mail
him at bvaldes@cfl.rr.com.
Valdes said, "I truly believe we can
do something really neat to help out
and have fun doing it."


The Orange County Citizen Corps
is holding its first Neighborhood Dis-
aster Preparedness Fair at the Cen-
tral Florida Fairgrounds on Saturday,

ing from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Everyone is encouraged to attend
this event, especially leaders of home-
owners associations. There is no cost,
and lunch will be provided.
Orange County Mayor Richard
Crotty supports the newly formed cit-
izens corps.

show how the Orange County Public
Safety Department and the Citizen
Emergency Response Team pro-
grams can work together to create
disaster-safe communities.


Health Central opens state-of-the-art rehab center


Health Central expanded its ser-
vices with the Sept. 1 opening of
a 5,200 square foot state-of-the-
art Center for Rehabilitation Ser-
vices. The center features pro-
grams designed to assist those re-
covering from an injury, recuper-
ating from surgery or as a remedy
for illness or injury that interferes
with the daily task of living.
Partnering with EnduraCare
Therapy Management Inc. (ETM),
Health Central is utilizing ETM's
latest technologies, equipment and
expertise in retaining the experi-,
enced therapists to provide the op-
timum in patient care. Rehabilita-
tion services are offered on both
an in-patient and outpatient basis
during convenient hours seven
days per week.
Pat Tipton Bray, PT, CDCS,
Health Central's director of reha-
bilitation services, said that the
center is fully staffed with physi-
cal, occupational and speech ther-
apists and offers a variety of treat-
ment options, including special-
ized treatment to control back and
neck pain; prosthetic and orthotic
therapies; post-stroke rehab; exer-
cise programs; rehab for knee, hip
and shoulder injuries; ultrasound;
and nerve stimulation for pain con-
trol.
Bray, former director of outpa-
tient rehab for Orlando Regional
Healthcare System, joined the
Health Central team in August to
oversee the new rehab center.
Bray said, "My vision is to pro-
vide a seamless continuum of'care
which is critical for the optimal
success of our patient's stay and
recovery while at Health Central's
Center for Rehabilitative Ser-
vices."
The center's therapists utilize

patients restore function, improve
mobility, relieve pain and achieve
their optimum level of indepen-

trauma, work or sports injuries,
cancer, birth defects, as well as
other acute or chronic medical con-

form functional activities.
Speech therapists and other ex-
pert clinicians will round out the
service teams, providing total care
with measurable success for ther-
apy patients.
Whether a patient is recovering
from surgery or dealing with long-
term mobility or pain issues,
Health Central's Rehab Center

Blood donations
needed to help
hurricane victims
Florida Blood Centers and the
American Association of Blood Banks
Task Force on Domestic Disasters and
Acts of Terrorism are coordinating ef-
forts to transport blood to locations in
need due to a continued flow of pa-
tients from the Gulf states.
Hospitals throughout Florida are
being impacted by the influx of pa-
tients from the disaster areas. Blood
centers throughout the Southeast will
need to be ready for the incoming need
for patient care and blood products.
FBC is working now with local com-
munities and organizations to coordi-
nate blood drives to help prepare.
To donate, a person must be in good
health, weigh a minimum of,110
pounds and be at least 17 years old.
Donations only take about 30-45 min-
utes.

attend trade show

drew more than 600 vendors and thou-
sands of attendees from all over the
world.
At the show, top artists in the indus-

"We enjoy the rush of inspiration and
creativity we get when we go to this
trade show," said Cheryl, who has been
a hairdresser since 1983.
"I've attended shows in New York
City, Atlanta, Miami and Washington,
D.C., and I believe I can get the most up-
to-date information in my own back
yard."
The top five trends she and her staff
saw at the show were big hair (from soft
waves to tiny ringlets to back-combed
straight hair), lots of color (including
vibrant reds, platinum blondes, rich
brunettes with soft gold highlights),
asymmetry (such as hair cut short on
one side or coming to a point on one side
in the back), striking faces (including
false eyelashes and dark eyeliners) and

Ocoee Mayor Scott Vandergrift congratulates Jewell Simmons at the
celebration of her 89th birthday.

Mayor honors Jewell Simmons



Aug. 27 was proclaimed "Jewell Sim-
mons Day" in Ocoee by Mayor Scott
Vandergrift in honor of her 89th birth-
day celebration She was also named
"Mayor of the Day." Although the cele-
bration was held that day, Jewell was
born Aug. 2, 1916. in Geneva County,
Ala. She and her late husband, Theodore
Roosevelt Simmons, were married for
more than 61 years and had seven chil-
dren, Eugene, Emmett, Lomax, Linda,
Denzell, Jerome and Brenda.
The family now includes 10 grand-
children, 10 great-grandchildren and four
great-great-grandchildren.
Jewell, who has been a Florida resi-
dent since 1944 and an Ocoee resident


since 1975, worked as a nurse's aid for the
former Sunland Hospital for retarded and
crippled children.
According to the proclamation, Jewell
loved working with the patients: "She
would come home telling how she would
get one of the kids that had never made
any facial expressions to smile real big for
her; and, from time to time, she was al-
lowed to bring different children home for
the day and the family would watch as she
made the child smile with her laughter."
Jewell says the secret to her long life
is "just laugh a lot."
The mayor congratulated Jewell at the
celebration and proclaimed her "truly a
jewel."

Windermere


Alice Marshall with her British friends, Eric and Mavis Stephenson.
They stopped on their tour at Harwich on the North Sea where the
Mayflower set sail in 1620 with Harwich resident Christopher Jones as
its master. According to this memorial sign the Pilgrims were picked up
in Southhampton and taken to Cape Cod, New England. The 90-foot
boat was the size of a tugboat and carried 100 passengers including
crew.


Stephensons host their Windermere friend


By Anne Bailey
Alice Marshall was the recent
guest of her longtime British friends,
Mavis and Eric Stephenson, at their
home in Frinton-on-the-Sea on the
North Sea 60 miles north of London.
For many years, the Stephensons
have been homeowners and winter
visitors in Windermere.
They first became acquainted with
Alice in the early 1980s when seek-
ing needed items for their first Win-
dermere home on Main Street. Using
an outdoor phone booth to answer
an ad, they could hear the telephone
ringing close by in Finders Keepers.
That was the beginning of a long-
standing and close friendship.
Alice has always had a special
feeling about England. Born in
British India where her parents were
missionaries, she could have chosen
to become a British citizen. As it
turned out, she was sent to the Unit-
ed States and attended college in
1942 when women and children
were ordered out of India and Bur-
ma.


"It was a hazardous journey," Al-
ice recalls of the six-week trip by
ship. "We had a destroyer escort and
zigzagged the whole way to avoid
the German U-boats."
During World War II, Mavis was
a driver for an ambulance service.
The young people liked to get to-
gether with American servicemen
and it so happened that Mavis's best
friend was dating a soldier from Or-
lando named Garth Walker with a
close Windermere connection. In lat-
er years, the Stephensons travelled the
U.S. widely, especially spending
time in the California wine country.
They knew little about Florida and
decided they wanted to check it out
for a possible second home. They
got in touch with Walker and he in-
troduced them to various places all
over the state. When they visited
Windermere, they decided to go no
further. The Stephensons agreed that
this was the place and have been
winter visitors ever since.
Alice's recent two-week visit in-
cluded a bus trip through London to
Dedham and Cambridge.

Workshop on college scholarships
is this Thurs. at West Orange High


The Central Florida Women's
League is sponsoring the second an-
nual Path To Scholarships workshop
on Thursday, Sept. 8, from 7-9 p.m.
in the West Orange High School au-
ditorium.
The program is open to all students
and parents in the local area, in-
cluding students from West Orange,
Dr. Phillips, Olympia and Ocoee
high schools.
The CFWL is a group of women
committed to serving the local com-
munity through financial support and
:volunteerism. During the past 17
years, the CFWL has awarded fund-
ing to local charities and offered
scholarships to qualified women stu-
dents in the local area.
Each year hundreds of organiza-
tions offer millions of dollars in
scholarships to high students based
on academic records, leadership


skills, community service and fi-
nancial need. Unfortunately, much
of this funding goes unused due to a
lack of applicants or the poor quali-
ty applications that are submitted.
June McBride, the workshop pre-
senter, has been a counselor and re-
source teacher for migrant students
in Central Florida for 12 years. Dur-
ing her years in education, McBride
recognized a need for mentors and
coaches to help young people believe
in themselves, identify their life pur-
pose and act on their strengths to
achieve their goals.
She realized that if students fol-
lowed some basic steps and principles
in their life, they could open many
doors to a brighter future.
In the workshop, McBride pro-
vides students and parents with a ba-
sic plan to successfully apply for
scholarships.

Sasha Smith visits South Africa for Global Youth Forum


This giraffe is just one of the many animals the group saw at the Aquil
la Game Reserve.


Sasha Smith of Winter Garden has
participated in many Global Youth
Forum trips, and her latest took her
to Cape Town, South Africa. The
group visited Table Mountain, Boul-
ders Beach, Cape Point, St. Cyprian's
School, Robben Island, District Six,
Paarl Wine Route, Kyalitsha Town-
ship and Aquilla Safari and Game
Lodge.
Cape Town's Table Mountain pro-
vided an "exhilarating ascent" with
"breathtaking views over the city and
its beaches," she said.
At Boulders Beach, the group
strolled wooden walkways to view
the Boulders penguins in their natural
habitat.
St. Cyprian's School provided a
look at the culture and education of
South Africa through the eyes of the
students there.
Robben Island, a place of banish-
ment, exile, isolation and imprison-
ment, offered a peek at the prison
where Nelson Mandela spent many
years.
"District Six is the most famous ex-
ample of the forced relocation policy
that existed under the Apartheid gov-
ernment," Smith said. "It was origi-
nally a vibrant and very diverse com-
munity, which has become neglected
and then, in many places, destroyed
as part of the relocation process.
"The site now serves as a place of
remembrance to all who lost so much
during those years of state oppres-
sion."
Smith embraced the natural beauty
and rich cultural heritage of the Paarl
Wine Route.
"There were the splendid moun-
tains that form a dramatic backdrop
to lush vineyards and gabled Cape
Dutch homesteads steeped in histo-
ry."
In Kyalitsha Township, Mama
Emilia hosts more than 95 children
who are unable to be taken care of by
their parents or are orphaned.
"It was incredible in such a tiny
house," Smith wrote in her journal,


that "there were two washers and dry-
ers, folded laundry and clean bed-
rooms (approximately seven) where
all these kids shared beds. And only
two bathrooms with two toilets and
showers each, and another room with
one bathtub."
The visiting group played and
danced outside with the children.
"It was amazing how amused they
were," she said.
The group's next stop was the HIV
hospital.
"When we arrived at the hospital, we
had a South African doctor explain
what some of the daily struggles were
toward the children," Smith wrote.
"Many came in having AIDS rather
than just HIV. Their mothers think
it's just the flu and that it will be over
with. Most of these children already
live in poverty. They already deal with
many hardships before the reality of
AIDS hits them even harder.


"We learned that nearly 1 million in-
fants are born every year with HIV,
and the disease orphans one child ev-
ery 14 seconds. But what's even worse
is most of the children that come in
have already progressed in the dis-
ease and have AIDS.
"But what was so great about this
hospital was that they have set up an
organization called Kids positive. It
has generated more than 1 million
rand (each U.S. dollar is worth rough-
ly 6.2 rand) for over 90 women with
HIV-positive children."
Smith said 20 rand puts food on the
table for one child for two weeks. She
and her group helped the organiza-
tion by buying different pins in the
shapes of flags, bracelets and key
chains.
The women bead all these items to
sell, and during the past three years,
they surpassed the one million rand
mark, each bringing in 100 to 200 rand


per week.
Each beaded AIDS pin earns 5 rand.
To learn more about the program, vis-
it www.kidzpositive.org/beads.
At Spier Wine Estate, the group
toured the vineyard and original cel-
lar (a gabled barn dating back to 1856)
and participated in the Eagle En-
counter and Cheetah Experience.
The Eagle Encounter is a rehabili-
tation center for birds of prey and
works to educate the public on the
care of birds to preserve the "eco-en-
vironment." Smith and the other stu-
dents watched a trained handler
demonstrate each bird's unique talent
and, at the Cheetah Experience, pet-
ted two cheetahs.
. At the Aquilla Safari and Game
Lodge, two game drives gave Smith
the opportunity to see Hippos, ostrich,
rhinos, deer, giraffes and lions while
surrounded by majestic mountains,
rivers and valleys.


Sasha Smith and members of her group visit with some lounging lions at the Aquilla Game Reserve. One
appears too content with his food to notice the strangers.


Sasha Smith poses next to the sign designating this point the 'most southwestern' of the continent of Africa.


The Aquilla Game Reserve included this male lion.


Sasha Smith became buddies with one of the children in the Kyalitsha Township. The children there, near-
ly 100, are either orphaned or unable to be taken care of by their parents.


Traveling by cable car gave visitors a spectacular view of the steep, rugged terrain and the clear-blue wa-
ters.

By Michael Laval

Three of four area high school foot-
ball teams lost last Friday night.
Olympia (1-1) came away with its first
win, beating Timber Creek 24-10. Dr.
Phillips suffered a shutout on the road,
and West Orange and Ocoee are both
still in search of their first win of 2005.

Olympia
The Titans rebounded from a Week
1 loss to beat Timber Creek 24-10 last
Friday on their home field.
At times, Olympia seemed to be
clicking on all cylinders on both sides
of the ball. Titan tailbacks racked up
225 rushing yards, while the defen-
sive unit made big plays to shut down
the Wolves.
Marquis Rolle (62 yards, 8 carries)
and Adam Dry (41 yards, 9 carries)
paced Olympia's running attack.
Michael Cooper added 30 yards on 5
carries, and Malcom Solomon carried
the ball 3 times for 7 yards. A strong
Titan offensive line created running
lanes for Dry on two touchdown runs
in the first half.
Olympia's Matt James closed out
the half with a 35-yard field goal.
A big-play Titan defense slammed
the door on Timber Creek in the fourth
quarter when Antonio Henry (5 tack-
les) intercepted a pass and ran it back
for a 75-yard touchdown return. Sean
Westphal helped lead Olympia's de-
fense with 13 tackles and a fumble re-
covery. Michael Lockley added 11
tackles. Titan defenders ganged up to
sack Timber Creek's quarterback five
times. The Wolves drove inside
Olympia's red zone four times but
came away with just one touchdown.
"We played an excellent first half in
all three phases of the game," said
Olympia Head Coach Bob Head. "I
was proud to get our first win; how-
ever, we still have a lot of work to do
to be a good football team."
Olympia quarterback Jeff Walters
threw for 43 yards on 2-for-7 pass-
ing, including one interception. His
targets were Rolle (15 yards) and Nel-
son (23 yards).
The Titans look to improve their
record on the road this Friday against
Boone.

West Orange
The Warriors and the Winter Park
Wildcats fought a defensive struggle
last Friday at WOHS.
West Orange took a 12-9 lead late
into the fourth quarter after a 70-yard
drive that ended with Dale Jones
breaking off a 30-yard touchdown run.


Olympia sports
update
The Olympia High varsity girls
swimming and diving team (2-0) won
its second meet of the season last week
against Apopka. Sarah Broadley (200
freestyle, breaststroke), Liz Broadley
(200 individual medley, backstroke),
Lizi Asencio (50 freestyle), Amber Sig-
gins (100 butterfly) and Amanda Dar-
quin (100 freestyle) all took first place
in their respective events to lead
Olympia to a 204-74 win.
The Titan varsity boys swimming
and diving team blew past Apopka 201-
66 last week. Olympia's Kevin Mor-
gan broke a school record in the 100
freestyle with a time of 48.8 seconds.
He also won the 200 individual med-
ley. Teammates Danny Voss (100 but-
terfly, 200 freestyle), Breno Guimaraes
(50 freestyle, 500 freestyle), Marcelo
Botar (100 breaststroke) and Zach Bon-
nema (100 backstroke) all captured first
place in their events. Michael Denni-
son was timed at 25.5 seconds in the 50
freestyle. Mike Neubacher took first
place in the diving competition.
The Olympia varsity girls volley-
ball team beat Apopka in straight games
last week. The Lady Titans dominated
at home, winning 25-23, 25-12, 25-22.
Brandi Culbreth put away 9 kills to lead
the offensive attack. Alejandra Acosta
picked up 12 digs, while Jessica Chew
recorded 10 digs and 10 straight serving
points. Lisa Kuykendall paced the de-
fense with 3 solo blocks. Sarah Deska
set up Olympia scores with 13 assists.
The Lady Titans also swept Poinciana
25-6, 25-8, 25-12 last week. Setter Kait-
lyn Erickson, middle blocker Lauren
Bucher and defensive specialists Jan-
ice Rivera and Rosie Helton also con-
tributed in the win.
The team went on to beat Gateway
25-22, 25-12, 25-22 last week. Rivera
kept Olympia on a roll by serving 9
points in a row. Chew added 10 kills
and 12 digs. Bucher, Acosta and Deska
played solid games to improve
Olympia's record to 4-1.
The Olympia junior varsity boys
golf team dismantled rival Dr. Phillips
last week, winning by 19 strokes. Titan
David Ziglar claimed the lowest score
of the day among both teams by shoot-
ing 1-over par 37. The win improved
Olympia's season record to 2-1.


Jones finished with 136 yards rush-
ing on just 15 carries. Warrior tail-
back Anthony Johnson (72 yards) car-
ried the ball several times on West
Orange's final scoring drive.
With the Warrior defense putting
on a stellar performance, it appeared
West Orange would come away with
its first win of the season. On the en-
suing kickoff, though, Winter Park's
Antonio Richard turned the game's
momentum around by breaking tack-
les and returning the ball to the West
Orange 34-yard line.
The Wildcats got into scoring range
two plays later on a 23-yard reverse.
With just over a minute remaining,
Winter Park scored the game-winning
touchdown on a 1-yard run.
West Orange's defensive unit held
its opponent to 161 total yards. An-
drew Motes, Kevin Dacosta and
Nathan Keller all recovered fumbles
for the Warriors. Motes and Durell
Solomon each forced a Winter Park
fumble. Solomon (14), Keller (12),
Travis Guida (10), Jarius Williams
(8) and Mark Ray (8) racked up tack-
les en route to holding Winter Park
running backs to 86 yards.
Keller and Guida combined for 3
sacks, while Ray added a solo sack.
A potent Warrior running game, led
by Jones and Johnson, produced 255
yards. Johnson scored West Orange's
other touchdown of the game in the
first quarter. Quarterback Mike Low-
ery rushed for 35 yards on 7 carries
and threw for 44 yards on 3-for-10
passing.
"We improved so much on defense
from Week 1," said WOHS Head
Coach Tim Smith. "We are looking
for a breakout week this week against
a much-improved Colonial squad."
West Orange (0-2) plays on the road
this Friday at Colonial High.

Dr. Phillips
The Panthers fell back to earth last
Friday night, a week after routine
Ocoee 26-7. Dr. Phillips was held otI
of the end zone all night, losing 23-0
to host Lake Mary.
The Dr. Phillips offense wasn't able
to get off the ground on a rain-soaked
field at Lake Mary High School. The
game actually started 40 minutes be-
hind the scheduled kickoff time due to
a rain delay.
After a scoreless first quarter that
saw both teams cough up the ball
twice, Lake Mary punched in the
game's first touchdown with a 16-
yard run. The Panthers responded with
a long, time-consuming drive that in-
cluded two successful fourth-down


Dr. Phillips High announced last
week that it became one of the first
schools in Central Florida to be
awarded grants from the United States
Tennis Association (USTA) and USA
Tennis Florida. The funding program
by the two organizations is aimed at
building and improving public tennis
facilities across the state.
USTA donated $2,500 to Dr.
Phillips, while USA Tennis Florida
gave a matching $2,500 contribution
as part of the state group's $350,000
public facility funding program. Dr.
Phillips girls tennis Coach Susie
Rahimitibar said the school will use the
grant money to upgrade its entire ten-
nis area, including bleachers, wind
screens, benches and water fountains.
The improvements, she said, should be
completed by the end of the year.
"USA Tennis Florida is very com-
mitted to increasing and improving
public tennis facilities in Florida and
the money this funding provides un-
derscores that deep commitment,"
said Don Cleveland, USA Tennis
Florida president. "This money will
help in the development and upkeep
of public tennis facilities in Florida
and we're delighted that Dr. Phillips


Calvary Christian
The Calvary Christian football
team hosted the West Gate Chris-
tian Patriots last Friday night at
Walker Field in Winter Garden.
The game was the second of the
season for the Calvary Christian
Cougars and their second victory,
this time by a score of 47-0. Sopho-
more Ethan Barba scored on the
game's first play by returning the
opening kickoff for a 78-yard touch-
down. Senior Chad Hodges added
the extra point to make the score 7-
0.
Calvary soon took over at the Pa-
triot 5-yard line after a blocked punt
by senior Bobby Berry. Freshman
Zach Bishop then scored the first of
his two touchdowns of the night.
On the next Calvary possession,


conversion rushes. The drive failed
to produce any points, though, when
a pass by DP quarterback Chris
Wilkes sailed incomplete on fourth-
and-12.
The Panther offense suffered a safe-
ty in the third quarter when a shotgun
snap flew over the head of quarter-
back Hoku Pratt while lined up inside
DP's own 10-yard line.
Dr. Phillips, however, bounced back
with another courageous drive. DP
successfully converted three consec-
utive fourth-down attempts to keep
its hopes alive but stalled inside the
red zone.
In the fourth quarter, Lake Mary
benefited from a shortened field to
score twice and extend its lead to 23-
0.
"The effort was there, the kids
played hard, and they never quit," said
DP Athletic Director John Magrino.
"They'll be ready to go this week."
The 1-1 Panthers return home this
Friday to take on a tough Apopka Blue
Darters team.

Ocoee
Ocoee High players and fans could
practically smell their first-ever foot-
ball victory. The Knights led 12-6 at
halftime last Friday playing against
Jones at the Florida Citrus Bowl.
Ocoee (0-2) couldn't hold on, though,
as the Tigers rallied for a 21-12 win.
Sophomore running back Ryan Ter-
rell provided the offense for Ocoee,
scoring two touchdowns in the sec-
ond quarter. The Knights failed to
convert extra-point attempts following
both scores. Terrell nearly broke the
century mark, finishing with 99 yards
rushing.
The Ocoee defense contained Jones
for most of the first half, surrender-
ing a score on a single play. Tiger run-
ning back Jazzman Campbell broke
off a 62-yard run that tied the game
at 6-6.
A 3-yard Campbell touchdown in
the third quarter momentarily tied the
score at 12. A successful 2-point con-
version by Jones put the Knights be-
hind 14-12. On Ocoee's next posses-
sion, quarterback Rickeem Jackson
threw an interception at his own 20-
yard line. Jones put the nail in the cof-
fin moments later with a 13-yard
touchdown run up the middle. The
Tiger defense shut out Ocoee for the
entire second half.
The Knights are hopeful that some
home cooking will result in a victory.
Ocoee hosts Freedom this Friday for
the school's inaugural home football
game.


High School is one of the first in
Metro Orlando benefiting from the
program.
"One of the benefits of belonging to
the USTA is knowing that a significant
portion of your membership dollars
are invested in community programs
such as these," Cleveland said.
The USTA started public funding
facility upgrades in Florida in 1999
under its popular Adopt-a-Court pro-
gram. Over that period of time, nine
Florida facilities and 75 courts have re-
ceived more than $40,000 in funding.
Dr. Phillips, Rahimitibar said, ap-
plied for the grant in January. The
only stipulation for receiving the grant
is that the applicant is an organiza-
tion member and that an amount of
money equal to that being requested
is invested into the facilities. DPHS re-
cently completed resurfacing its ten-
nis courts.
Anyone interested in applying or
learning more about public facility
funding through USTA/USA Tennis
Florida should contact Shannon Hat-
ton at facilityfunding@usta.com or
visit the National Recreation and
Parks Association web site at
www.nrpa.org/usta.


i improves to 2-0
Hodges thew a 27-yard touchdown
to receiver Matt Bryant. After the
Cougar defense forced a turnover
on downs, junior Khazie Davis
scored on a 3-yard run for a 28-0
Calvary lead at the end of the first
quarter.
Hodges later connected with Bar-
ba for a 49-yard TD strike. Bryant
scored his second touchdown of the
night by recovering a fumbled snap
in the end zone by the West Gate
punter.
The Cougar defense was led by
seniors Bobby Berry, David Eddy,
Bryan Tinkey and David Howard.
Junior Tim Angela added 3 tackles.
Calvary Christian's next game is
scheduled for Sept. 30 at Walker
Field against Heritage Prep.

"Then God said (to Abraham) take your son, your only son, Isaac,
whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there
as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about."
Gen 22:2

What do we know about Abraham? First, we know that he recognized
God's voice. And we know that he obeyed. Because Abraham had spent a
lifetime knowing God, he believed all was going to be ok, that God would
work things out, even when the instructions seemed so very strange and
frightening. But when Abraham and Isaac left the servants to go up the
mountain, Abraham told them, "We will come back to you." When Isaac
asked his father, "Where is the lamb for the burnt offering?" his answer
was, "God himself will provide the burnt offering." Abraham knew God
would provide because he knew God.
What do we know about Isaac? We know he trusted his father, and we
know that he, too, must have trusted God to provide for him, to the extent
that he allowed Abraham, an old man, to bind him and place him on the al-


and Vietnamese communities.

tar of sacrifice. In the face of his fears, Isaac trusted God, but he was also
willing to be the sacrifice.
And what do we know about God? Was God playing a cruel joke on
Abraham? No, it is not in God's nature to be cruel. God knew Abraham
loved and trusted Him. The Word says "God tested Abraham". Why? Did
God need proof of Abraham's devotion? I believe God wanted Abraham
and Isaac to know the full blessing of trusting Him. They knew Him, they
trusted Him and in the fullness of time God showed them how incredibly
trustworthy He is.
Lord, You are trustworthy and You know what each of us needs to walk
through; what each of us needs to let go of; what each of us needs to be
willing to sacrifice. I can't imagine being willing to sacrifice my child...
but You were. You sacrificed Your only son, Jesus, whom You love... for
us.
"This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His
Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins." 1 John 4:10

through an interactive plot summary of a Shakespearean play. During the 2nd half of the class, all of the
students are taught how to paraphrase Shakespeare's text from Early Moder English to Contemporary En-
glish. Then they take turns performing selected scenes for the class. Pictured are students in Mrs. Brooks'

The sounds of happy children abounded as Windermere Prep recently opened its new playground. Students
wasted no time in breaking in the slides, bars and chutes of the new equipment.


New playground
The new playground at Windermere
Prep is the latest structure to join the
expanded facilities in 2005-06. The
new neighborhood houses 20 class-
rooms for students in PreK-3 through
third grade, the Knowledge Center and


a cafeteria.
The expansion coincides with a 27-
percent increase in enrollment over
last year, bringing total enrollment to
544 students.
"Windermere Prep appreciates the
significant actions of the WPVA, our
fantastic parent support group, in rais-


ing funds that contributed to the mag-
nificence of the playground," said
Headmaster Dr. Leigh Byron. "The
playground won't be the newest struc-
ture for long on our campus; we ex-
pect to break ground on the new gym-
nasium and baseball field later this
year."


Millie Milan from BJ's Wholesale and Jodi Goersch from PUP's share goodies with the Burt family at the
Bay Meadows Elementary Meet Your Teacher Day/Partner in Education Fair.


Meet Your Teacher Day
Meet Your Teacher Day/Partner in
Education Fair was held at Bay Mead-
ows Elementary recently. Families
were invited to come visit their child's
classroom and meet their teacher.
Several Partners in Education were
on hand, also, to greet families, share
information about their business and


hand out coupons and treats. BJ's
Wholesale, Ghirardelli Chocolate, Ju-
nior Achievement, The Learning Tree
and Sizzler's were in attendance.
There were coupons, balloons, choco-
lates, crayons and other goodies for
the students.
Parents had the opportunity to sign
up to volunteer for JA. They also could


become members of BJ's Wholesale
Club and have a donation come back
to the school.
Parents could also look at the teach-
ers' wish lists for teaching materials
from The Learning Tree. Everyone
learned that the first Bay Meadows
Night Out will be at Sizzler's on Inter-
national Drive on Sept. 27.

: to slime Bell at the conclusion of
.-. ." the campaign. More than 120
students enjoyed pouring green
slime on their favorite P.E.
N' teacher. The school raised more
than $10,600 for this worthwhile
.. cause.


Katrina Relief Drive
The Ocoee High Student Govern-
ment Association is sponsoring a do-
nation drive for those affected by Hur-
ricane Katrina's devastation. The goal
is to raise $15,000 by Sept. 15, which
is approximately $5 per student. All
donations will be given to the Ameri-
can Red Cross.
Anyone interested in donating can
come by the OHS administration build-
ing.

Successful opening
The Whispering Oak Elementary Wild-
cats roared into their inaugural school
year with a busy Meet the Teacher Day
on Aug. 5. More than 800 students and
their families visited the school. The PTA
sold T-shirts, water bottles and mem-
berships; and the entire staff was on hand
with a friendly smile and helping hand.
There was also a self-directed Wildcat
Tracks contest/tour of the school build-
ing and grounds. Classrooms were open
for parents and children to meet their new
teachers and discuss plans for the year.
The fun continued on Aug. 8 with a fes-
tive First-Day-Of-School Celebration re-
sembling a giant birthday party with gift
boxes and balloons decorating the halls.
The first three weeks of school are now
. completed, and more than 1,000 students
are now enrolled.
"We are so thankful for your encour-
agement and support during our very
busy, but successful, first few weeks of
school," said Dr. Patricia Ramsey-Baney,


principal. 'We look forward to a great year
together in education."
Open House
Whispering Oak's inaugural Open
House is this Thursday, Sept. 8. Session
one for grades K-2 will meet from 6 to
7:15 p.m. Session two for grades 3 to 5
will meet from 7:30 to 8:45 p.m.
This schedule was developed to max-
imize the limited parking facilities, as well
as to accommodate families with children
in multiple grade levels.
Please be prompt. Parents will visit the
classrooms in three 20-minute sessions,
so families with additional children in the
respective age groups will have time to vis-
it each of the rooms.
The PTA will sell hot dogs, chips and
a drink for $3 from 5:30 p.m. until they
run out. There will be a membership table,
ADDitions volunteer sign-ups and school
T-shirts for sale. There will be a voter reg-
istration representative on site during the
event. For details, call 407-656-7773.

Students at Chain of Lakes Middle are learning a new word every day. Each morning on the announcements,
they are introduced to a new word, which they write in their planners. They must write the definition or draw
a picture to illustrate the meaning. Each Friday they are rewarded for their efforts. The planners are checked
by the administrative team, and if they have completed all 5 days' words and definitions, they receive a freeze
pop. Students are excited about this new project, which will continue throughout the school year. Pictured
is Principal Carol Kindt (center) checking a student's planner while Tiffany Smid, dean, gives out the freeze

Second-graders at Oakland Avenue Charter School are studying life cycles in science. In order to give the
children a more hands-on approach, teachers decided to bring the miracle of metamorphosis right into the
classrooms. Mrs. Tietjens' class is pictured releasing the newly transformed butterfly.

Lowe's, LMS team up
to help hurricane victims
Lakeview Middle is proud of the com-
passion and sensitivity its students and
faculty are showing for the victims of
Hurricane Katrina. In an effort to help, the
school is collecting monetary donations,
and Lowe's has agreed to match the
donation.
To donate, bring cash to LMS or give
a check at Lowe's with "Lakeview Red
Cross donation" written on the bottom.

New Beta Club members
Seventh-graders at LMS were in-
ducted into the Beta Club recently.
Based on their grades in 6th grade, new
members must have a 3.0 grade-point
average and have a willingness to serve
others once they are inducted.
Every year the Beta Club has many
activities to help serve LMS and the
community. Annual events include work-
ing for Food for Families and Toys for


Tots and collecting supplies for the lo-
cal animal shelter.
In February, the club holds an annu-
al carnation sale at school for students
to buy a carnation to send to a friend on
Valentine's Day. The money received
goes toward donations to local charities
and organizations.
Club members are given a goal at the
beginning of the year to serve at least 10
hours of community service outside of
school. At the end of the year, the club
celebrates its success.
The new members are: Alyssa Alicea,
Katie Allen, Amber Anderson, Jennifer
Armbruster, Toni Barbarino, James Bar-
tel, Kiara Bartlett, Shane Bedasee,
Aimee Berger, Joseph Berrios, Rebec-
ca Branson, Ellen Brown, Julissa Brown,

Mud volleyball
Fifteen Junior ROTC cadets from
West Orange High recently volun-
teered their time to help the March of
Dimes. Each summer, the March of
Dimes hosts the Mud Volleyball Tour-
nament at Lee Vista Center to raise
money for research to prevent infant
birth defects and premature births.
The tournament features local cor-
porate teams and sponsors that raise
money to compete in the event. This
year, 130 teams entered and raised
more than $100,000 for the March of
Dimes.
Teams started play in the elimination
tournament at 9 a.m. and finished at 5
p.m. The WOHS cadets helped from
7.a.m. to 5 p.m. with site set-up and
clean-up, water and ice distribution
and other logistics.
SVolunteers were Opal Lehrer, Katie
Heatherman, Caleb Poston, Devin
Ball, Ninoshka Gonzalez, Kevin
Kirkley, Edwin Morales, Andrea Ve-
lasquez, Onelia Rivera, Christopher
Jacks, Ashley Alexander, Tyler Faden-
recht, Michael Lapp, Omer Harrison,
Fabian Reyes and Jonathan Connell.
! This is the eighth consecutive year
West Orange has helped with this
highly successful charity fund-raiser.


WOHS Air Force Jr. ROTC cadets Ninoshka Gonzalez and Katie
Heatherman clean up during the March of Dimes Mud Volleyball event
at Lee Vista Center near the Orlando International Airport.
