Children find tutoring help at WO Christian Service Center


- Reading Reindeer
dropped off books for
kids at the Ocoee facility
this week.

By Kathy Aber

Helping local students with read-
ing, writing and arithmetic studies is
a daily event at the Christian Service
Center West Orange Life Center
on Franklin Street in Ocoee.
Students used to receive help only
on Wednesday, but CSC Director
Peg MacDonald told The West Or-
ange Times last week that students in
.the extended-day program receive


homework help every day.
CSC volunteers help 39 kinder-
garten through fifth-grade children'
and 14 middle-school- age students
on a regular basis.
The kids earn points according to a
list of achievements, including posi-
tive attitude and improvement in their
grades. At the end of each marking
* period, the students redeem points for
items in a special CSC student store.
This semester the shopping day is
scheduled for next Wednesday. The
store will be stocked with a special
inventory so the children will be able
to buy gifts for family members for
Christmas.
Reading Reindeer has been sup-
porting this worthwhile educational


The West Orange and Ocoee high school bands joined together to
make Christmas music together in both the Ocoee and Winter Garden


endeavor with its delivery of books
for eight straight years, and the staff
was pleased to be able to drop off this
year's books to the tutoring students

By Kathy Aber

The Windermere community was
shocked to learn Monday that Coun-
cil Member Fred H. Pryor Jr. died over
the weekend.
Pryor, 54, the president nd man-
aging principal of HuntonBrady Ar-
chitects, died while on'vacation in
South Carolina. He is survived by his
wife, Angela, and sons, Fred III, 17,
Owen, 15, and Evan, 11.
A Windermere resident for 10 years,
Pryor was the senior member of the
Town Council. He was initially elect-
ed in 2002 to complete a term vacat-
ed when Bill Osborne became mayor.
He was re-elected in 2003 and 2005.
He served on the town's Historic
Preservation Board for 12 years, be-
ginning when he purchased land in
town. He was also a member of the
Parks and Recreation Committee and
was a member and the former chair-
man of the Long-Range Planning
Committee. His current responsibili-
ties included budget and finance op-
erations in town.
Pryor spearheaded the implemen-
tation of the Canin and Associates
2020 Vision Plan a comprehensive
project to address traffic issues and
revitalize Windermere's downtown
area. He drafted the 48-page contract
for the Main Street project, which is
being officially dedicated this Satur-
day. At the request of the mayor and
town manager, Pryor was scheduled to
be the keynote speaker for ribbon-cut-
ting ceremony on Saturday.
"Mr. Pryor was a leader in both
business arid the community," said
Windermere Mayor Gary Bruhn. "He
was to be our keynote speaker for this
Saturday's celebration because of all
the work that he did in bringing these
improvements to Windermere. His
work and memory will live on in the
many projects and enhancements that
touch our residents' lives every day."
Carl Patterson, chairman of Win-
dermere's Historic Preservation Board


and a Windermere Rotarian, had
worked with Pryor in various capac-
ities.
"Fred cared deeply about the qual-
ity of life in Windermere and backed
it up with service to the town," Pat-
terson said on Monday.
Pryor was involved with Boy Scout
Troop 223 at Windermere Union
Church, where two of his sons were
troop members.
"Fred Pryor will be sorely missed by
all," said Tony Powell, former Scout-
master of Troop 23. "Too few persons
grace our lives with the unassuming
and genuine spirit that marked the life
of this fine man. I count it a privilege
to have known Fred and his family
through Scouting."
Pryor was an employee of Hunton-
Brady Architects for 23 years and a
principal with the firm for 20 years. He
was one of five partners of the 58-
year-old company.
Pryor served the Central Florida

Tow to Go Program to combat


For the sixth straight year, AAA Auto
Club South and Budweiser have launched
the Two to Go Program to help make the
holidays safer for everyone.
Created in 1998, Tow to Go fights
drunk-driving by offering a free ride home
and a free tow to adults who may have
had too much alcohol. Last year, Tow to
Go kept more than 1,300 potential drunk
drivers off roadways across the South-
east.


Elections
until the March election.
The' only requirements to run for of-
fice in Ocoee are to be a resident of the
city and, if seeking a position as a district
commissioner, to live in that district. The
fee to run is $50.
The annual salary for each commis-
sioner is $4,000.
Two races slated for Winter Garden are
for District 1, currently held by Com-
missioner Rod Reynolds, and for May-
or Jack Quesinberry's seat. Qualifying
will open at noon on Tuesday, Jan. 17,
and end at noon on Tuesday, Jan. 24,
- and candidates must be registered voters
and have been residents of the city for two
years immediately prior to qualifying.


This year, Two to Go is available
throughout the entire state of Florida and
the metro areas of Atlanta and Nashville.
For the first time, it will also include Sa-
vannah, Ga. The program runs from
Thanksgiving Day through New Year's
Day.
"Two to Go obviously helps those
drivers who find themselves in a danger-
ous situation; but, more importantly, it
keeps a major hazard off our roads," said


It costs $135 to register as a mayoral
candidate and $87 to register as a com-
mission candidate. Effective this up-
coming election, the mayor's salary is
$12,000 per year, and commissioners
earn $7,200.
The town of Oakland has two ways
to qualify for the Town Commission.
From Tuesday, Jan. 3, to Friday, Jan.
13, a candidate can qualify by collect-
ing 100 signatures on a petition.
Candidates must sign a declaration of
candidacy and obtain a sample petition
from the town clerk or from the state
Web site at
www.election.dos.state.fl.us/forms. They
can then make their own copies.

Health Central's Rapid Response Team
makes critical difference, saves lives


In just five months, 80 patients'
lives have been impacted positive-
ly even saved by Health Cen-
tral's Rapid Response Team. Initi-
ated July 2005, this team of clini-
cians brings critical care expertise to
the nursing station, patient bedside
or wherever they are needed in an ef-
fort to reduce mortality rates in crit-
ical care patients.
Rapid Response Teams have been
billed as an innovative strategy to
save the lives of critically ill pa-
tients, using a team approach to in-
tervene when a patient's condition
suddenly becomes critical. The team
strives to prevent codes and other
medical crises, working under the
; premise of "rescue rather than re-
suscitate."
Elizabeth Robinson, director of
critical care, noted that Health Cen-
tral's team is made up of many nurs-
es from Health Central's Nursing
Excellence Board and are experi-
enced charge nurses who can offer
quick, expert evaluations of patients
and provide support for the nursing
staff.


Robinson said: "These nurses are
experienced and have advanced
skills. They are experts at quick
triage and have enhanced knowl-
edge from their work in critical
care."
Rapid Response Team nurses are
available on every shift, for every
unit and can mean the difference be-
tween life and death. In some cases,
nurses assigned to patients may have
a general feeling of unease about a
patient's condition but don't have
enough specifics to warrant an
emergency call to the patient's
physician.
A member of the Rapid Response
Team can quickly evaluate the sit-
uation, mobilize the patient to an-
other unit for upgraded care or pro-
vide lifesaving intervention. In
many cases, they served as teach-
ers and support for the clinical staff.
"The goal is to reduce codes on
nursing units and also evaluate pa-
tients and bring them where treat-
ment is available, such as moving
them to beds in PCU or CCU for
more critical care," Robinson said.

Celebration
The celebration is the culmination
of a year of planning, patience and
perseverance from everyone in the
Windermere community.
From April until October, there
were road closures and detours. For
much of the summer rainy season,
vehicles were rerouted onto the
town's dirt, and sometimes-mud-
laden, roads. In dry periods, residents
on those streets tolerated the dust.
Downtown merchants lost nearby
parking spaces and even some busi-
ness, and shoppers had to take cir-
cuitous paths to get to the downtown
shops.
Windermere officials undertook
the $2.5 million Main Street reno-
vation primarily to alleviate the
town's chronic traffic-congestion
woes.


Tutoring
in time for Christmas another way
to reward them for their hard work
and perseverance.
Besides the books for the tutoring
students, Reading Reindeer delivered
another 40 books for preschool chil-
dren of families served by CSC.
If your business, club, church or
service group is planning a holiday
event, it's not too late to ask guests to
bring along a new book for a Read-
ing Reindeer child.
Since 1998, the Times has been
sponsoring this annual book collec-
tion to encourage children to read and
parents to read to their children at least
20 minutes a day.
Literacy experts report that one in
five adults in Central Florida can't
read a newspaper or fill out a job ap-
plication.
MacDonald said in her work at the
Christian Service Center she often
finds homeless individuals living in
West Orange County.
With your help, we can make this
Christmas brighter and better with the
gift of a book and the start of a personal
library for their children.
There are just two weeks remain-
ing in this week's drive, and the Times
is still striving to collect 3,000 books
before Christmas.
The book total stands at 828, so we
still need your support.
Besides these children, Reading
Reindeer hopes to gather books for
many other needy children in West
Orange County this Christmas. This
year's list includes: Play & Learn Day
School in Winter Garden; migrant stu-
dents in the Early Intervention Pro-
gram of Orange County Public
Schools; Mollie Ray elementary
school; the Maxey Community Cen-
ter; Reach Out and Read at the Win-
ter Garden Children's Health Center;
Toys For Tots in Ocoee and Winter
Garden; the Center For Drug-Free
Living; and new babies at Health Cen-
tral hospital.
The Times has drop-off locations
for new books at the four local li-
braries (Southwest, Windermere, West
Oaks and Winter Garden), the West
Orange Chamber of Commerce office
on West Colonial Drive and the Times
office, 720 S. Dillard St., Winter Gar-

After 22 years as director of Westside Tech
in Winter Garden and more than 30 years as an
employee of the Orange County Public
Schools, Walt Cobb is retiring this month. A big
party was held in his honorat the West Orange
Country Club last Thursday evening attended
by education officials, Westside administra-
tors and staff, friends and family.
Ocoee High Principal Mike Armbruster em-
ceed the roast and toast in hilarious fashion
and was the hit of the evening with his off-the-
cuff comments, as well as his story of how
Walt had been the first person to hire him for


By U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson

As the New Year quickly approaches and I reflect on
2005, I feel honored to serve and represent the state of
Florida in the U.S. Senate, particularly as we grapple
with the big issues that are facing the nation today.
The war in Iraq, oil-drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mex-
ico, FEMA, Hurricane Wilma, Supreme Court nomina-
tions and even corruption within our own government are
just a few of the year's headlines in our state and across
the country.
In Congress this year, I've had to fight many power-
ful interests, from insurance companies to oil compa-
nies to the big banks. And I'm continuing to fight every
day to preserve Social Security for our seniors, to pro-
tect the privacy of everyday citizens from hackers and iden-
tity thieves and to ensure that our children and grand-
children receive a good education and a good-paying
job.
As the Congress finishes up before the holidays, I am
reminded of all the victories we have achieved for Flori-
da this year. This fall, with the help of a bipartisan group
of Florida's Congress members, I successfully blocked
a provision that would have subjected Florida to oil-


a teaching job. He also said the best things he
learned as an educator and has continued to
put into use as a principal he learned from Walt.
Walt and Westside have been an essential
part of the West Orange community for many
years. We wish him well in his retirement and
his plans for travel and recreation and thank
him for his years of dedicated leadership at
Westside.
We also look forward to working with the
new director (as yet unnamed) for the school
that serves such an important role in our com-
munity.


drilling 25 miles off the coast.
My legislation to increase military survivor benefits will
now help improve the lives of 55,000 widows, widow-
ers and orphans.
I made sure that a new Florida program designed to Plec-
tronically track sex offenders after they leave jail re-
ceived $2 million in federal funds. And Florida conser-
vation projects received $140 million at my request.
I'm already looking toward the coming year with op-
timism. In November, the Senate came remarkably close
to passing my legislation to give seniors more time to
enroll in the new prescription drug program, and I feel
confident that we will successfully pass this provision in
the New Year.
In addition, I'll continue to demand full accountabil-
ity from FEMA and will fight to increase NOAA fund-
ing to better prepare Florida for future hurricane sea-
sons. And I'll do everything within my capacity to make
oil-drilling stay away from Florida's coasts permanent-
ly.
I'm committed to addressing the everyday concerns and
problems of my constituents in 2006; and, although we
face many challenges, I remain optimistic for the future
of our great state of Florida and our country.

Help replant trees lost to Hurricane Katrina


The National Arbor Day Foundation has announced
a special new campaign to assist in tree recovery efforts
for the areas that were devastated by Hurricane Katri-
na. Through the Katrina Tree Recovery Campaign, the
Arbor Day Foundation, in cooperation with the National
Audubon Society, is offering people across America
the opportunity to support replanting trees in coastal
Mississippi and Louisiana and begin the reforestation of
neighborhoods and cities across the region.
For every $10 donated to the Katrina Tree Recovery
Campaign, the foundation will contribute 10 trees to be
planted by Katrina victims.
"This is an important way to help those who have suf-
fered the loss of vital trees," said Foundation President
John Rosenow. "Through their contribution, support-
,ers throughout America will make it possible for peo-
ple in Mississippi and Louisiana to plant native-species

trees to counter some of the destruction caused by Ka-
.trina. Trees add beauty and conservation benefits to
back yards and natural areas. This is an important way
to help restore the land and rebuild communities."
The tree species to be planted include bald cypress, red
maple, eastern red cedar and red oak. Rosenow said that
not only will supporters have the satisfaction of donat-
ing these trees to people in need, but the Arbor Day
Foundation will also provide to each donor of $10 or
more a free membership, including a subscription to the
foundation's bimonthly publication, Arbor Day, and
The Tree Book with information about tree planting and
care.

MOVE OVER MOMMY!
Yes, it's Zach's turn for a few updates and
well wishes to all of you out there in West Or-
ange County. For your regular readers, I need
no introduction, but for you newcomers, I am
Zachary Austin Maxwell, son of William
maxwell and Libby Tomyn. Every year my
mom, who is the best realtor in the whole wide
world, takes a break from column-writing,
which means I get a turn to chat with y'all on
a weekly basis, so here it goes!
Well, let me begin by saying that the third
grade is awesome. When I tried to tell my mom
(did I tell you she is the best realtor in the whole
wide world?)...anyway, when I tried to tell her
we were starting to do equations in math, she
looked at me like I was from another planet.
She said I was mistaken and that I don't start
equations until the seventh grade. She looked
like a ghost when I showed her my school pa-
pers for proof and mumbled something about
needing another degree to help me with my
homework.
Then there's basketball...HOORAY! I'm
finally old enough to play for the school team
and we'll be playing other schools and they
will actually call fouls and traveling and all that
other good stuff just like in real basketball. I
can't wait for our first game!
One of the coolest things that happened this
year was that my dad built me a fort for my
birthday and he surrounded it with a putt-putt
course! Hey, I've got a great idea! If you need
to buy or sell a house and you have kids around
my age...call my mom to help you and then I
could meet your kids and they could come over
to play putt-putt.. .that would be cool!
Well, I'm out of space, so I'll have to wait
'till next week to fill you in on all the craziness
in real estate this year.. .be sure to come back
then!

Boy Scout trio earns 3 Eagles


For the first time in its nearly 70-
year history, Boy Scout Troop 210,

three Scouts at the same time.
Samuel Cappleman, Robert
Eisinger and Timothy Keating III
were honored Nov. 25 in a ceremony
attended by hundreds of family mem-

These three boys have achieved
something that less than five percent
of all Scouts accomplish: the rank of
Eagle Scout.
Since joining the Boy Scouts, the
three have cumulatively achieved 120
merit badges, 299 miles of back-
packing, 278 nights of camping and
245 miles of day hiking.
The Scouts also completed leader-
ship service projects that benefited
the Methodist church, the Central
Florida Railroad Museum in Winter
Garden and the Oakland Nature Pre-
serve.
Cappleman, Eisinger and Keating
received numerous awards and cer-

you very much.

Love,

Oriental art exhibit at
Southwest Library
The Southwest Library will host an art
exhibit by the Oriental Brush Painting
Society during December and January.
The Oriental Brush Society is a group
of artists who are continuing their edu-
cation in the long-established techniques
of Chinese brush painting. Most of these
individuals have already been schooled
in the work of Western masters. Chi-
nese brush painting requires the use of
a bamboo brush, black ink or watercol-
or pigments and rice papers that are soft

and delicate. The art form requires dis-
cipline of oneself and of the tools.
For more information or library hours,
call the Southwest Library at 407-835-

Drive near the Dr. Phillips Market-
place.

Sports


Dr. Phillips Pee Wees advance to national championship semi-finals


Only coaching changes can

return FSU to football glory


By Michael Laval

We're into the first week of De-
cember, and I'm still struggling to
recover from Thanksgiving week-
end. It's not from an overdose of
turkey, stuffing and leftovers,
though.
Despite seeing my Florida State
Seminoles win the Atlantic Coast,
Conference championship game
last Saturday, the nausea is still
lingering from the 34-7 loss FSU
suffered against the Florida Gators.
S .Winning the ACC title halted
FloridaState's downward spiral (a
three-game losing streak culmi-
nating with the Florida game), but
it should not serve as redemption
for offensive coordinator Jeff Bow-
den.
'Losses in recent years to teams
FSU once regularly crushed by
ridiculous margins have cost Flori-
da State its status as an elite college
football program. A lack of pro-
dilction on offense and poor de-
velopment of players are to blame
for FSU's fall to mediocrity.
As a student at Florida State for
five years (1994-99), I attended
every home football game and nev-
er saw the Seminoles lose, I was
among many lucky FSU students
who enjoyed an unprecedented run
inr which our beloved team went
undefeated at home for 10 years,
finished each season ranked No. 5
or better in the nation for 14 con-
secutive.years and brought home
two national championships and
two Heisman trophies.
Those days are now just fond
college memories.
On Jan. 4, 2001, I sat in the Or-
ange Bowl in Miami and witnessed
the last night of the Seminole dy-
nasty. FSU lost the national title
game to Oklahoma that evening
and in the coming months would
lose longtime Assistant Coach
Chuck Amato and Offensive Co-
ordinator Mark Richt.
In the four years since their de-
Spartures, Florida State has gone
43-19. It took FSU from 1987-
2000 to total the same number of
losses.
Prior to the 2001 season, Head
Coach Bobby Bowden promoted
his son, Jeff, to fill the offensive
coordinator position vacated by
Richt.
For a decade, Florida State
boasted some of the most prolific
offensive units in college football
history. Scoring 60 to 70 points
against conference opponents was
once commonplace. FSU players
displayed an unabashed swagger
on the field. Opponents feared the
Seminoles.
Since, Jeff Bowden began call-
ing plays, Florida State has failed
to inspire fear as its offensive pro-
duction plummeted from No. 1 na-
tionally (2000) to among the worst
during the- 2004 season. Many
blamed FSU's woes on maligned
quarterback Chris Rix, who arrived
on campus as a highly touted re-
cruit but spent four seasons with a
black cloud hanging over his head.
I remember the hype surround-
ing Rix before he took the reigns of
the Seminole offense as a redshirt
freshman. He was said to have the
legs of Charlie Ward and the arm
of Chris Weinke (both Heisman
winners for FSU).
During his first two years as a
starting quarterback, Rix displayed
moments of brilliance but often
turned into a human blooper reel
in the most crucial situations.
Through his' junior and senior
years, he never realized his poten-
tial and twice lost his starting role
to underclassmen quarterbacks.
Although Jeff Bowden took
some heat, Seminole fans and crit-
ics blamed Rix for everything that
went wrong on the football field
during those four seasons. The
2005 season brought a renewed
sense of optimism that the post-
Rix era would mean a return to
football glory.
That vision seemed to be mate-
rializing when FSU won its open-
ing game against arch-rival Mia-
mi, reeled off a 5-0 record and
climbed the national rankings to
No. 4.
Two months ago, I honestly be-
'lieved Florida State would be play-
ing for the national championship
-in January. College football reali-
ty came crashing down upon me


in November, possibly the worst
month Seminole fans have ever
seen.
FSU finished the regular season
7-4 after losing their last three
games, including that embarrassing
defeat to the Gators.
In the Florida game and in loss-
es to countless unranked opponents
over the past five years, FSU has
appeared to be running a high
school-caliber offensive gameplan.
How did one of college football's
most creative and explosive of-
fenses of the 1980s and 1990s re-
vert to the days of disco in just one
season?
Jeff Bowden, an FSU receivers
coach before being elevated by his
father, had no business taking over
the offense of an elite college foot-
ball team. Until he is replaced,
Florida State is unlikely to com-
pete for another national title.
Bobby Bowden and FSI Ath-
letic Director Dave Hart should
have searched the country in 2001
for the most innovative and qual-
ified offensive coordinator avail-
able.
Imagine if FSU had hired either
Norm Chow or Charlie Weiss to
call plays. Both men could have
been had in 2001. Chow went on to
make a name for himself as the of-
fensive coordinator at the Univer-
sity of Southern California, where
he directed a high-octane attack
that produced championships and
Heisman Trophy-winning quar-
terbacks from 2002-04.
Weiss made a splash in college
football this season as head coach
at Notre Dame, where he trans-
formed the team's historically old-
fashioned offense into an NFL-cal-
iber aerial assault.
When I look back at Rix's lack
of growth at FSU, I blame Jeff
Bowden. When freshman or
sophomore quarterbacks make
foolish mistakes we blame youth.
A good offensive coordinator
should develop his passer and help
him grow into a better player each
year. This hasn't been happening
in Tallahassee.
Just imagine if Rix had been
molded throughout his college ca-
reer by someone like Chow or
Weiss.
Redshirt freshmen Drew Weath-
erford and Xavier Lee, both for-
mer blue chip recruits, have been
vying for FSU's starting quarter-
back role this season. Despite
Florida State's struggles since
2001, Bobby Bowden has contin-
ued to reel in some of the coun-
try's top recruiting classes each
year. It would be a shame if the
talents of Weatherford, Lee and
their offensive teammates are
dwindled as Rix's was.
While FSU's defense in recent
years has not matched, its domi-
nance of the 1990s, it has been car-
rying the team on its back. Besides,
when thd offense continually fails
to keep drives alive, the defense is
handed poor field position. Flori-
da State's offense has been so ane-
mic that the defense must nearly
pitch a shutout to guarantee a win.
As criticism of Jeff Bowden
reached its peak following the
Florida game, Bobby Bowden'
came to his son's defense by blam-
ing injuries and missed assign-
ments. The legendary Bowden has
made it clear that he will not fire or
demote his son no matter how loud
the outcry from boosters and alum-
ni. Some fans have even done what
was once unthinkable by calling,
for the elder Bowden's head.
The 76-year-old Bowden cur-
rently leads 79-year-old Joe Pa-
terno in the record books with 359
career wins to 353. Paterno,
though, coached his Penn State
team this season to a 10-1 record
and a Big 10 Conference champi-
onship and has said he has no plans
to retire.
Bowden's and Paterno's teams
will square off Jan. 3 in the Orange
Bowl.
While FSU's 2005 season took
a positive turn last weekend, Semi-
nole fans might still have to ask
themselves which is more impor-
tant, that their St. Bobby forever
hold onto the record for most career
wins by a major college football
coach while the team maintains its
current level of play, or that FSU
returns to dominance before the
end of the decade.

West Orange High sports update


By Tyler Koch
and Stefanie Carrier

The West Orange High Warriors
felt some highs and lows last week in
sports. The varsity basketball team
upset a surprised Ocoee Knights team
for a victory. At the same time, some
other teams are having a tough time
finding avin.
It is important to remember that the
WOHS population has been split twice
in the past five years. While the War-
riors are still viable opponents, it
comes as no surprise that there will
be some team rebuilding ahead.
The boys basketball team practiced
hard in preparation for the Ocoee
game, and the work paid off when the
Warriors brought their "A" game to
the court and pulled out a win over
the Knights by a score of 59-56.
Tyrone Curnell was the team's lead-
ing scorer with 25 points and 8 re-
bounds. Jean Selus also contributed
to the win with 9 points and 6 steals.
Coach Jones said about the game,
"Solid defense helped secure the win."
West Orange then took on Apopka
and soundly defeated the Blue Darters
67-60. Curnell had a double-double
with 25 points and 11 rebounds. Selus
also had 17 points, and Johnny Val-
court set a school record with 8
blocks.
The Warriors have a busy sched-
ule this week, traveling to Edgewa-
ter on Thursday, Jones on Friday and
Oviedo (Hoops with a Heart) on Sat-
urday.
At Edgewater and Jones, junior var-
sity will play at 6 p.m. and varsity at


7:30 p.m. The freshmen will also play
at Jones at 4:30 p.m.
The girls basketball team didn't
fare as well last week. The team'
played three games and lost all three.
In the first game, the Warriors fell to
Winter Park. Against Apopka, the
girls were just outmatched, losing 60-
20. In the final game, they fought hard
but were defeated 50-40 by Oak
Ridge.
Their next scheduled games:
Wednesday against Edgewater and
Friday against Evans.
The boys soccer team battled hard.
last week but could not win either of,l
their games against Apopka and;
Edgewater. In the Warriors' first
game of the week against Olympia,
Mother Nature interfered, and the
game was postponed.
The team then matched up against,
the Blue Darters. The Warriors start-
ed out a bit rough in the first half
but really stepped it up later in the
game. But it proved to be too little
too late for the Warriors as they lost
4-1.
The Warriors faced the same sce-
nario against Edgewater, losing 7-0.,
The boys record is 1-7, but they are
looking to redeem themselves in the
second part of the season.
Their next game will be at home
against University this Thursday, Dec.
8.
The girls soccer team saw a victo-
ry in its game vs. University. The
Warriors came out ready to play and
Defeated the Cougars 3-1. The WOHS
girls will play a tough East Ridge op- "
ponent this Friday, Dec. 9.

Georgia. Edwards is a four-year starter for the Titans. Present for the official signing are (1-r): seated, Coach

ran and Athletic Director Kevin Demer.

Golf


Local student golfers receive regional recog nition


The names of several local high
school golfers were added to the All-
Central Florida and All-County golf
teams last week.
The All-Central Florida boys golf
first team included local students Eric
Cole of Olympia High School and
Sam Saunders of Trinity Prep. Oth-
ers on the first team are Ji Moon of
Lake Mary, Jhared Hack of Circle
Christian and Lion Kim of-Lake Mary
Prep.
Cole, a senior, posted a 35-stroke
average this season. He is a four-year
varsity member of the OHS team that
was state champion in 2003 and run-
ner-up in 2002, 2004 and 2005. He is
the son of former LPGA star Laura


Baugh. Cole finished seventh at state
as a freshman, second as a junior and
was the medalist in the district and re-
gional tournaments this year.
Saunders, who lives in Windermere,
is also a senior. His Trinity Prep team
came up two strokes short of the Class
1A state title this year. He is the grand-
son of golf legend Arnold Palmer.
Saunders has signed a grant-in-aid
scholarship to play college golf for
Clemson University.
Saunders, the state champion last
year and runner-up as the state medal-
ist this year, was also named the Or-
ange County Golfer of the Year.
The All-Central Florida boys sec-
ond team includes Olympia junior


James Byrd and Michael Stern, a se-
nior at Dr. Phillips High.
Others on the All-County boys first
team are Cole, Hack, Stern and Byrd.
No local players were named to the
All-County boys second team.
All-County honorable mention
recognition was given to Kyle Long of
West Orange, Mario Miranda of
DPHS and Brandon Ramirez of
DPHS.
The girls All-Central Florida squad
includes Monica Kelsey of Olympia
High. Others on the first team are Jes-
sica Yadloczky of Lake Howell,
Vicky Hurst of Holy Trinity, Nicole
Agnello of Lake Mary and Camille
Williams of Seabreeze.


Kelsey is a senior and has been a
four-year varsity player for OHS. She
has the team's best season average
and won the district championship.
During the season, she was among the
top golfers in every tournament she
played. The OHS girls team was run-
ner-up at state losing to Lake Howell
by 12 strokes. Kelsey has competed
with the team at state since her fresh-


man year.

Dining


Local barbecue restaurant named best in Central Florida


By Michael Laval

Winter Garden's Brothers
'j, and Sisters Barbecue Restau-
rant, located at 1201 S.
Vineland Road, received the
'recognition last weekend of
being named the critic's choice
for the best barbecue restau-
rant in the Central Florida area
by The Orlando Sentinel 2005
Foodie Awards.
The restaurant is literally
owned and operated by broth-
ers and sisters, all Winter Gar-
den natives. Vern Massey,
Greg Massey, Frances Massey
Luckett and Beverly Massey
Mount, along with her hus-
band John, opened Brothers
and Sisters in September of
2004. It has since been a local
favorite. The Sentinel first
spotlighted the restaurant last
July.
Beverly Mount, a retired
schoolteacher of 31 years from
Dillard Street and Maxey ele-
mentary schools, said all the
food at Brothers and Sisters is
prepared according to her
mother's family recipes.
Brothers and Sisters is the
family's first venture into the
restaurant business. It all start-
ed when the siblings worked
together a couple of years ago
to host their mother's 80th
birthday. The gathering at Tan-
ner Hall drew about 200 peo-
ple, Mount said, and the
Massey brothers and sisters
served everyone with their,


family barbecue.
"Everybody said it was so
good, we thought, boy, we
may be on to something,"
Mount said.
Brothers and Sisters contin-
ues to cater large events, such
as family reunions, parties and
club or school meetings, in ad-
dition to serving customers in
their dining room.
Barbecued pulled pork,
chopped beef, ribs and chick-
en are offered as lunch spe-
cials in the afternoon and as
platters in the evening. A long
list of sides and desserts in-
cludes favorites, such as baked
beans, cole slaw, collard
greens, macaroni and cheese,
fried okra, potato salad, Ger-
man chocolate cake, sweet
potato pie, red velvet cake and
peach cobbler.
Pulled pork and sliced beef
brisket can also be bought by
the pound.
Brothers and Sisters, Mount
said, has a loyal following of
local customers but continues
to see business increase since
being named the metropolitan
area's best barbecue estab-
lishment.
The Massey family opens its
doors Tuesday through Satur-
day from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and
Monday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Beginning Jan. 2, Brothers and
Sisters will be closed all day
Monday.
For more information, call
407-905-6912.

Winter Garden winner's


recipe featured in cookbook


Passing along recipes from gener-
ation to generation is one of the great
traditions a family can share. As times
get busier and families live farther
apart, the memories conjured up by
a familiar recipe can remind us of
wonderful times from the past and
send us back home to our childhood
kitchen table.
Anyone who takes a moment to
close their eyes and think back in time
can likely remember a dish so well
that tastebuds begin to react in antic-
ipation. And, with one million asso-
ciates from all around the country,
Wal-Mart is an excellent representa-
tion of the various cultures interwo-
ven within our nation's communities,
With this in mind, these associates
were invited to share their treasured
recipes in a quest to come up with a
collection of delicious, family-tested
favorites.
After sifting through thousands of.
recipe entries in every category, the all-
new Wal-Mart Family Cookbook was
created and includes everything from
appetizers and soups to main dishes,
kids' favorites and desserts.
There are dishes representing a
wide range of geographical, ethic and
cultural influences that have been
bound into a regional edition for the
stores to offer. Each recipe was test-
ed (and tasted), and the results are
sure to be enjoyed by new families
who will add the recipes to their fam-
ily traditions.
Local Wal-Mart associate Lynn A.
Woods of Winter Garden is one of
the cooks featured in the cookbook.
Her recipe for Rice Pudding is an in-
stant favorite with everyone who
tastes it.


Winning recipes are published in
six regional editions of the Wal-Mart
Family Cookbook, each reflecting the
flavors and favorites of local com-
munities. Each regional edition fea-
tures 80 recipes, some of which have
been in families for generations; oth-
ers have been recently created and are
budget-conscious and easy to prepare.
The easy-to-use, 96-page cookbook
is in full color and spiral bound. This'
is a community cookbook a good
gift for a beginner in the kitchen or
for the veteran who is looking for new
successes.
The cookbook sells for $4.96 and
is available in all Wal-Mart stores this
month.

Lynn Woods'
Rice Pudding

As I See It...
A Comment & Study of the Scriptures Remembering George Gano


"Then the Lord said to Moses, "Behold l will rain
bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out
and gather a day's portion every day, that I may test
them, whether or not they will walk in My instruction."
Ex. 16:4
Let's talk about bread. I can go to the grocery store
on my way home from work and buy a loaf of pack-
aged, pre-sliced, factory-made bread. It is convenient
and consistent and will last a few days on the kitchen
counter, readily accessible for breakfast toast, school
lunches and the occasional late night PBJ. Or I can get
up early on Saturday and proof some yeast, measure
and mix the carefully chosen ingredients, wait patiently
as the dough rises, and handcraft a couple fragrant
loaves of one of my favorite breads. My hands, cloth-
ing, dishes, counters, and usually my kitchen floor, will
need to be cleaned after I'm through. The process re-
quires time and attention, and is not in the least conve-
nient. But, oh, is it worth it! By the time the loaves are

ready to come out of the oven my family is lined up,
eager for a taste. We enjoy every bite, but on those
rare occasions when we won't be able to eat it all right
away, I make sure to deliver the extra loaf to a friend
or neighbor. Fresh bread doesn't last. Without the
chemicals and preservatives found in packaged bread
it quickly loses its value.
Father, Your people found out the hard
way that they couldn't live on day-old manna, as it
bred worms and rotted. I don't want try to live on
day-old "Bread", old lessons, old testimonies. Some-
times I don't find it convenient to wake up early, but I
know You have for me a handcrafted, fragrant, life
changing message each and every morning. It is so
worth it! I don't want to miss out on the joy of walk-
ing in Your instruction.

Citrus Elementary students recently observed Red Ribbon Week. This is a week dedicated to anti-drug
education through fun activities. The theme was 'Reach for the Stars, Not Drugs.' Students wore red rib-
bons, stickers and reflective bracelets stating the theme, and a day was designated for wearing red. Fri-
day was spent 'Shooting for the Stars, Not Drugs' with a basketball shoot-off. All classes came out to the
basketball court during their special area class time to shoot baskets. The winning class received Sno-
kones provided by the PTA; and all other classes received a freeze pop..

Two Ocoee High teachers, Joe Amendola and David Wilson, recently received their National Board Certi-
fication. When asked if they ever considered not completing the tedious process, both teachers agreed
that it was hard but with patience and some sacrifices, it was worth the effort. Amendola and Wilson were
excited to have earned the recognition and agreed that it will help them in the future. Amendola said,
'Whether it's doing hands-on or group activities, my new knowledge will help me teach the students to open
their minds in relation to the way they think about different situations.' Wilson feels what he learned will 'help
me relate to students who learn differently.' Pictured are Amendola and Wilson with Principal Mike Armbruster.

*WINTER PRICE NEGOTIATIONS.


If you are searching for the best home
equity loan, ask these three questions:
1) Will you guarantee the lowest
rate in writing? We promise the lowest
rate in writing. We won't merely match
your lowest rate. If we can't beat it-even
after you've gone through the entire
loan process with us- we will pay vou
$250 just for applying with us.
2) Will my interest rate increase,
if I have a low credit score? To.
other loan companies, you are just a
faceless credit score. The lower your
score, the higher your interest rates.


AtHoney Mac Home Loans, we don't let
a computer tell us what to do. We
can give you a loan when others
say no even if you have a low credit
score.
3) What are the chances my loan
will be approved? We approve 6 out
of 7 applications. And some of
these people have credit 'scores
below 530. We can give you a quote
over the phone, in complete privacy,
without obligation-no matter your
financial situation.
