Town resident Bob
Sprick will serve on the
council until the election
March 14.

By Kathy Aber

Windermere Mayor Gary Bruhn
recommended to the council at its reg-
ular meeting last Tuesday that Fred
Pryor's seat be left vacant until the
next town election on March 14, 2006.
He said he preferred to fill the seat by
election rather than an appointment.
Pryor, who was the senior member of
the council, died suddenly Dec. 4. His
term was set to end at the town elec-
tion in 2007.
The mayor said there is nothing of
consequence coming before the coun-
cil in the next 90 days.
During the meeting, Town Attor-
ney Cliff Shepard advised the council
that the members were obligated to
appoint a replacement within 30 days
of a vacancy, according to the town
charter.
"The charter uses the word shall.
I'll leave it at that," said Shepard.
"It's our obligation to fill the va-
cancy," said Council Member Matt'
Sullivan. "I nominate Bob Sprick for
that seat."
Once all of the council members
understood Shepard's interpretation
of the charter language, they voted
unanimously to appoint Sprick.
Shepard further explained that
Sprick's appointment would last un-
til the election in March, when the seat
would be included on the ballot, along
with those of the mayor and members


BOB SPRICK
Sullivan and Ron Martin, whose terms
are expiring.
For the council seats,,the three can-
didates with the most votes will be
elected. The winner and runner-up
will take two-year terms, and the third
individual will fill the one-year re-
mainder of Pryor's term.
Following his appointment, Sprick
said: "I am stepping into really big
shoes. I have a lot of respect for Fred
Pryor. I'm excited about it and look-
ing forward to it."
Sprick has lived in Windermere
since 1987 and resides at 606 Mag-
nolia St. He is a single parent and has
two daughters. Anne lives with him
and is a senior at Olympia High

Special Christmas gift kidney transplant


The Keene's Pointe
resident received a new
kidney from her son-in-law.

By Kathy Aber

Jean Polarolo, 64, said her Christ-
mas wish list was a little different this
year.
SWhile many adults are dreaming of
new electronics, sparkly jewelry or
sporting equipment, she was hoping for
just one thing a new kidney.
"Just recently, I was notified that I
will be having a kidney transplant,"
said Polarolo last week. "This gift of
life has to be the best present I have
ever received."
The transplant surgery took place
Monday in Baltimore, and Polarolo's
son-in-law Roger Wilson, 39, was the
kidney donor.,
Following the surgery, Jeanne's
husband, Eugene Polarolo, said,


"Jeanne and Roger are doing great.
Their surgeons said both surgeries
went smoothly, without a hitch."
Polarolo suffers from PKD, poly-
cystic kidney disease, and even though
she has an identical twin, her sister
could not donate a kidney because she
also has PKD and had a transplant last
June.
PKD is the most common genetic
life-threatening disease, affecting
more than 12.5 million people world-
wide. The disease causes multiple
cysts on each kidney which grow and
increase in number until the kidney
shuts down causing end-stage renal
disease.
In 2004, Polarolo learned that her
kidneys were starting to fail. In Au-
gust she began dialysis, which in-
volves spending several hours in a
chair at a local medical facility or us-
ing a procedure at home that lasts all
night, every night.
A transplant was Polarolo's only

Hospital in Baltimore this weekend with her son-in-law Roger Wilson,
her donor, prior to the kidney transplant surgery, which took place on
Monday.


hope for a normal life.
She listed her name with the Unit-
ed Network of Organ Sharing for a
cadaver kidney a year and a half ago.
The waitingg period for a cadaver kid-
ney is usually long and can be from
one to five years. There are more than
60,000 people on the UNOS list wait-
ing for kidneys, and many die before
an organ becomes available.
Polarolo found searching for a live
donor very unnerving.
"I don't even like to borrow sug-
ar," she said. "How do you approach
friends and say: 'Oh, by the way, I
need a kidney'?"
Two of her three children have PKD
and could not be donors. Her other
unaffected child has a different blood
type and was excluded, too.
"How thrilled I was when this
daughter's husband, my son-in-law,
Roger Wilson, of Atlanta was tested
and qualified to give me his kidney,"
said Polarolo. "He is a special person,
always giving blood on a regular ba-
sis and doing activities in his church
for charity."
"PKD affects my wife's family,"
said Wilson on Sunday. "When I
found out that my wife and father-in-
law were not compatible donors, I
wanted to do what I could to help."
"I am so blessed to have a son-in-law
who is giving me a chance at freedom
again free from the dialysis ma-
chine," said Polarolo last week.
The procedure is major surgery, and
Polarolo will be on anti-rejection drugs
for the rest of her life. A live donor
can usually live a normal lifetime with
the one remaining kidney.
"I know the road is not going to be
easy for both the donor and the recip-
ient," she said. "I am so thankful for
this opportunity. This is the greatest gift
anyone could ever give."
Polarolo is retired and was a for-
mer principal at Dr. Phillips Elemen-
tary School. She is also an author. She
and her husband, Gene, live on Whit-
ford Court in Windermere.
Wilson is a regional sales manager
for Forms and Surfaces. He lives with
his wife, Joanne, and three sons,
Callan, Cade and Riley, in Atlanta.
The Polarolos will have to remain
in Baltimore for two to three months
following the surgery. If anyone wish-
es to send a card, the address is: Jean

New stretch of beltway opens to public


By Michael Laval

Motorists can now cruise along a
newly opened stretch of the State Road
429 Daniel Webster Western Beltway.
Local and state officials stood on the,
expressway's southbound lanes last Fri-
day morning and cut a ceremonial rib-
bon to celebrate the extension of the
beltway from County Road 535 to New
Independence Parkway. The public will
be able to travel even further south on
the road this Friday when lanes to U.S.
Highway 192 will open to traffic.
. The beltway's new 14-mile southern


extension (from C.R. 535 to U.S. 192)
was built in a partnership between the
Orlando-Orange County Expressway
Authority and the Florida's Turnpike
Enterprise.
"This is a great day for West Orange
County," State Sen. Daniel Webster said
Friday. "Hopefully it will create more
good growth."
Long roads, Webster added, take a
long time to build.
Construction of the beltway, which
reaches north to U.S. 441 in Apopka,
began in 1998 and has cost more than
$350 million. With Friday's opening to

Robbery by sudden
snatching in Ocoee
On Saturday, Dec. 17, Ocoee po-
lice officers arrested a man for rob-
bery at the West Oaks Mall. Ac-
cording to the police, the victim
was walking outside of the mall
with his family when the suspect,
Maurice D. Griffin, 18, ran up to
the victim and grabbed a cellular
telephone that was attached to his
belt and fled on foot.
The victim yelled, "Help, po-
lice," and gained officers' attention
who were already in the area. The
officers saw Griffin running away
from the scene and arrested him in
the parking lot. They transported
him to the Orange County Jail
where he is charged with robbery by
sudden snatching. The cellular
phone was recovered, and no one

WGPD honors Officer Griffin:


Officer Matthew Griffin was
nominated by his immediate super-
visor and selected as the Officer of
the Month for November. His su-.
pervisor cited the following:
On Nov. 6, Officer Griffin re-
sponded to a report of an unrespon-
sive female in front of the Regal
Pointe subdivision. She had origi-
nally been found by an off-duty Or-
lando police officer, Thaddeus

Upon Griffin's arrival, Essie Big-
nall had stopped breathing and her
heart had stopped. Officers placed
her on the ground and began CPR,

Due to the officers' actions, Big-
nall's life was prolonged until she

Hilton Grand Vacation Club brings party, donation to HCP
Health Central Park has received a generous donation of $3,400, a welcome gift during the Christmas sea-
son. Last week, 17 staff members from Hilton Grand Vacation Club visited HCP's Alzheimer's/dementia unit
for a holiday party that included Santa and several of his elves. The donation will be used to enhance the
bathing facilities with a more homelike and relaxing bathing experience. A portion of the monies will be
used to purchase a state-of-the-art towel warmer. Donations during the year included bath sheets, gripper
slipper socks and several collections of DVDs. This marked the 2nd holiday party that the Hilton has provided
for the residents.


Winter Garden children receive bikes, toys, books for Christmas
The Winter Garden Police Department raised more than $10,000 this year for its Toys For Tots program
and was able to provide Christmas presents for 97 families and children at the Maxey Center, Maxey Head
Start several daycare facilities and special classes at Dillard Street Elementary School. 'The West Orange
Times' also donated new books through its annual Reading Reindeer program. The bulk of the monetary
donations came from Winter Garden merchants. A total of $1,600 was raised in volleyball games between
police officers and teachers at Lakeview Middle School. Prior to Saturday's giveaway, Ruth Rambissoon,
executive assistant to Police Chief George Brennan (from left); Officer Nefty Albaladejo; and Adrienne
Rawles, records clerk, paused for a picture with some of the bicycles and toys. Also volunteering their time
were officers Neftali 'Nefty' Albaladejo, Anthony Dawkins, James McLeod and Ben Stalvey; Amy Hernan-
dez, assistant to Lt. Fred Carpenter: Chief George Brennan's wife, Adrienne Brennan; and Police Explor-
ers Matthew Strickland, Cody Peavyhouse, Chaline Jean, Lamersi Jean and Patsy Holt.

Opinion


Editor:

We have been faithfully attending the City Commission
meetings since July and were very concerned when we
missed the meeting in which a vote was taken supporting
a $50,000 allotment for commissioners to send out mail-
ings to address issues of importance within their districts.
As we understand it, Commissioner Theo Graham had
commented, "We must be careful that this is not used as
a political tool," or words to that effect. And Mayor Jack
Quesinberry was the only member who voted against the
measure (suggesting the more prudent course of including
notes of importance in utility bills at a much smaller cost
to the taxpayer).
We were angry when we received the glossy color fli-
er with Commissioner Rod Reynolds' picture on both
sides, surrounded by the Statue of Liberty and an Ameri-


can flag, and the comment about how he'd been "appointed
by the governor," etc. We are not even in Commissioner
Reynolds' district! We deeply resent our tax dollars be-
ing spent to promote this man whom we do not support!
This flier is pure politicizing under the guise of "district
concerns," and we feel strongly that the monies allocated
for this mailing should be paid by Mr. Reynolds' person-
al campaign funds. We do not endorse Mr. Reynolds, who
often makes comments or asks questions during commis-
sion meetings regarding matters included in packets which
commissioners were supposed to read prior to the meet-
ings.
We sincerely believe that the money for mailings should
be rescinded.

West Orange Chamber presents Lifetime
In recognition for his dedication,
the West Orange Chamber of Com-
merce recently presented Neal Har- ,
ris with a Lifetime Achievement .
Award at the December board meet-
ing.
Harris recently retired from his
role as vice president of Castle & .
Cooke, developers of the prime res-
idential community located in Win-
dermere. His dedication and many
years of service include his role with
the Chamber as the president of the
Committee of 101, chairman of the
Chamber and long-time board mem-
ber.
"Neal is a dynamic force in West .7
Orange County," said Stina D'Uva, NEAL HARRIS


Achievement Award
president of the Chamber. "The work
he has done to bring West Orange
County to the next level is invalu-i
able. He is a visionary."
Harris has dedicated much time
and energy to the continued growth
and enhancement of the West Or-
ange Community.
His career in real estate began in
Jacksonville 30 years ago and has,
grown throughout the state. As a real,
estate development consultant and'
court-appointed receiver for some'
of the nation's largest institutional,
lenders, Harris has successfully;
transformed distressed real estate
developments into profitable ven-
tures.


Writer says Reynolds did nothing wrong


Editor:

This is in reference to your editorial Dec. 15 [regard-
ing] Commissioner Rod-Reynolds' town hall meeting.
I attended that meeting and most all commission meet-
ings. I disagree with that article because you failed to
tell the whole story.
First, all expenditures involved for town hall meeting
notification was approved by the commission, so
Reynolds did nothing wrong.
Second, in no way is this flier representing any polit-
ical advertisement. As for the flag and Statue of Liber-
ty, does it mean anyone wearing a pin that depicts both
are representing.themself as a political activist?
Your statement did the taxpayers get their money's
worth! Yes, they will and this meeting is a turn in the
right direction. Ask the people that live in Chapin Sta-


tion area that has had a flooding problem over two years.
They contacted the city on this issue with no help. Well,
they relayed this problem to Reynolds at the town hall
meeting. Our commissioner responded with action next
morning. So let's not criticize our commissioner for get-
ting in touch with the people and doing what he can to
help. That's his job. I would tend to think you people
would be willing to help.
We need to have a united community not divided as
it appears now.
Rod Reynolds had a background check by F.D.L.E.
requested by Gov. Bush. Results clean slate.
Rod Reynolds is a family man and a respectable busi-
nessman in.Winter Garden.

Writer says newspaper should be 'shut down'


Editor:
It seems as though Commissioner Reynolds did reach
out to the voters, he apparently is a patriotic person who
believes in the "We the People" type of government. You
know where that comes from, don't you? Let me remind
you. The Constitution of the United States of America, The
Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights.
You are a great example of a newspaper that needs to
be shut down for your bias and un-American attitude.
Did \ ou e% er \ ork for the Ne\\ s Agency TASS of Com-
munist Russia? Commissioner Reynolds is doing the right


Editor:

Once again, thank you very much for the "Reading
Reindeer" books you donated to our clients and program
for Christmas.
The books will provide many hours of entertainment


thing for the citizens, helping them get involved in the
government that they are. Why don't you help him suc-
ceed instead of trying to discredit him?
Charlie Klein
Orlando

Editor's note: What could be more un-American than
"shutting down" a newspaper for criticizing an elected
official or in this case an appointed one? Our criti-
cism has nothing to do with patriotism, it's about the ex-
ploitation of taxpayers' money for personal gain.


Lifetime membership awarded
The West Orange Chamber recently presented the Lifetime Member Award to 'The West Orange Times.'
'The West Orange Times has been an integral part of our changing community,' said Stina D'Uva, presi-
.dent of the Chamber. 'They have been a media icon in West Orange for 100 years, and residents and busi-
ness owners have come to rely on their pages for the news and social happenings.' Past recipients of the
Lifetime Member Award include Robert Barber, Lucille Hovsepian, Mervin Lee and Woodlawn Memorial Park
& Funeral Home. Presenting the award to George and Anne Bailey (3rd and 4th from left) are 2005 chair-
man Jim Neumeyer, president Stina D'uva and 2006 chairman Pam Gould.

' "These are the people that help pre-

Florida citrus crop estimate falls by 15 percent


The U.S Department of Agriculture
,*USD.\ re leased its second crop fore-
cast recenild for the 2005-06 season.
; The USD- expects the state's or-
4nge crop to produce 162 million box-
es thissseason That marks a 15 percent
decrease froni the Oct. 12 estimate.
: "This decrease is largely due to the
Crop loss caused by Hurricane Wilma,"
said Andy LaVigne, executive vice
president and CEO of Florida Citrus
Mutual. "Also, reports of smaller than
anticipated fruit sizes have impacted
the estimate."
zihe forecast for early and mid-sea-
son varieties, which includes 3.5 mil-
lion boxes of navels, is projected at 80
ifillion boxes. Valencias are projected
af'82 million boxes.
"Grower cash market prices for ear-
ly-mid season oranges have already in-
creased sharply in anticipation of this
crop reduction and are about 40 per-
cent higher than last season," said LaV-
igne. "However, growers may not see
a 'great improvement to their bottom
line due to higher production costs for
fuel and harvesting labor."

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
There, I said it...MERRY CHRIST-
MAS! None of this.Happy Holidays or
Seasons Greetings for me..-.It's
CHRISTMAS! You know...Baby Jesus
and ugar plums...bright shining stars
and sleigh bells...wise men and twin-
kling lights...shepperds and bright col-
ored bows.
It's supposed to be the most magical,
wonderful time of the year, full of
dreams come true, hope and the glory of
the birth of Jesus, but somebody out there
is trying to ruin it! And I'm not going to
let them!
Some years I've had a hard time decid-
ing what to give Jesus for his birthday,
but not this year, no way. This one was
easy. With all the hoopla going on, I
simply want to give Jesus Merry Christ-
mas back. And along with that Christ-
mas stockings, Christmas trees, Christ-
mas cookies, Christmas carols, Christ-
mas lights and Christmas ornaments. All
the glitz and glitter has been a part of
Christmas for all my life, and probably
even before that, and that's OK...it
makes up the FUN part of Christmas.
But I'm going to draw the line when peo-
ple try to stdp saying Merry Christmas,
want to rewrite Silent Night and com-
pletely ignore the real reason for the sea-
son.
Well, my mom says it's time to get off
my soap box so we can bake some
Christmas cookies...and she wants me
to wish you all a blessed Christmas, so
in closing, I will just remind you all that
even Santa said...
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good
night!
Merry Christmas everyone!

Resort tax collections
Orange County Comptroller Martha
Haynie announced last week that re-
sort tax collections received by the
county in November for the hotel col-
lection month of October were
$10,020,500.
Resort taxes are charged on short-
term rentals, mostly hotels and mo-
tels.
"The amount collected in October
is slightly below budget, reflecting a
slowing rate of growth in this rev-
enue," said Haynie. "Nevertheless,
$10 million is a solid start for our new
fiscak.year."
Collections by the county in Octo-
ber, she added, were three percent
above collections received for Octo-
ber 2004.

Maxey students

earn bicycles
Christmas came early for 25 star
fourth-grade students at Maxey Ele-
mentary School.
For the past four and a half months,
these students worked harder than ever
before to exhibit good behavior, per-
fect attendance and exemplary class-
room efforts in the hopes of earning
enough points to win a bicycle through
A Gift For Teaching's Bikes For Kids
Program.
As a'program of the local non-prof-
it AGFT, Bikes For Kids began in De-
cember 2002 in an effort to provide de-
serving students with an incentive to
work hard and stay in school. The pro-
gram, which awards bikes in May and
December of each school year, has giv-
en away more than 400 bikes to local stu-
dents in need.
AGFT President and Founder Gary
Landwirth said: "Bikes For Kids in-
stills in these children the value of work-
ing hard and staying in school by re-
warding them with something most of
these children might never have the op-
portunity to own a brand-new bicy-
cle. Many of them have never worked
harder than they have when working
towards this bike and that is a reward
within itself."
In addition to their new bikes, stu-
dents also won new bike helmets and
locks. A tean of volunteers who helped
assemble the bikes the Saturday before
also helped fit the bikes to each student
and even gave private riding lessons.
Bikes For Kids is supported this year
by local organizations such as Cuhaci
& Peterson Architects with additional
support from David's World Cycle,
Baldwin Park Development Company,
Buttar.com and Squadra, a national bi-
cycle clothing company.

cluding birds and bunnies.

Oriental art exhibit at
Southwest Library
The Southwest Library will host an
art exhibit by the Oriental Brush Paint-
ing 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. Chinese
brush painting requires the use of a bam-
boo brush, black ink or watercolor pig-
ments and rice papers that are soft and del-
icate. The art form requires discipline of
oneself and of the tools.
There will be an art demonstration and
class Saturday, Jan. 14, at 2 p.m. given
by the members of the society. The class
is for anyone from age 7 through adult.
Registration is required. For details, to
register or for library hours, call the
Southwest Library at 407-835-7323. The
library is located on Della Drive near the
Dr. Phillips Marketplace.

Local men join 'home-rescue' team to help Katrina victims restart


Pastor Jon van Sliedrecht of Trinity Lutheran Church in downtown Orlando rips wet drywall down to the orig-
inal studs. The smell of mold and mildew growing inside the walls was almost unbearable,' he said.


- ..
-"---


* ,


Apopka-area volunteer Tom White adjusts his protective goggles and gets ready to go back into a home
devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Piles of home furnishings and soggy materials filled yards everywhere in
the Mississippi Delta region.


As the 2005 hurricane season fades
into memories, a team of Lutheran good
Samaritans, including several West Or-
ange County residents, discovered that
the damage to homes and churches
throughout the Gulf region will remain
for a long time to come.
For thousands of families, the smelly
residue that was left by the floodwaters
of Katrina and other storms has perma-
nently impacted their daily lives. And
those are the lucky ones with homes
still standing.
"Aside from the well-documented
structural devastation from Hurricane
Katrina and the ensuing floods in key
places such as Waveland, Miss., and
New Orleans, one of the biggest long-
term effects on buildings left standing is
mold and mildew," said Pastor Jon van
Sliedrecht, associate pastor of Trinity
Lutheran Church in downtown Orlan-
do, one of the organizers of the relief
trip.
He and a team of Lutheran volunteers
from Orlando and Boca Raton joined
thousands of others from across the
country in traveling to these storm-rav-
aged areas to help people get their homes
and their lives restarted. Three local
men, Jason Zavitz, 'an Ocoee-area res-
ident, Bruce Hahn of Bridgestone near
MetroWest, and Bill Cox, who lives
near Lake Floyd, joined the six-person
Trinity team.
"Our church will be coordinating a
continuous program of 'home rescue'
trips like this for some time," said van
Sliedrecht, and anyone willing to trav-
el to any of the recent hurricane loca-
tions and volunteer a little 'sweat equi-
ty' can hook up with a team by simply
calling my office in Orlando at 407-
422-5704.
"What we found inside standing
homes and churches in Louisiana and
Mississippi," he said, "was wet, soggy
carpet, drywall that was far from dry
and insulation that we could wring out
with our hands. And the musty smells
from inside the walls were almost un-
bearable. Our teams had to wear pro-
tective masks to work with the wet ma-
terials."
The pastor predicted it will take a lot
of work in the months ahead to restore
the buildings to their former purposes.
He said his team helped residents take
the first step in removing the moldy ma-
terials and cleaning up the sources so
they could dry out.
The goodwill trip started in the im-
mediate aftermath of Katrina when three
former classmates at the Missouri Syn-
od's seminary in St. Louis collaborated
to organize the long clean-up effort.
It began with a flurry of phone calls
and e-mails between van Sliedrecht and
Pastor Tom Photenheuer of St. Paul's
Lutheran in Boca Raton and Pastor
Dave Buss, relief coordinator from Trin-
ity Lutheran in Baton Rouge, La., a few
days after the hurricane flooded the Gulf
Coast in September. All three had grad-
uated from the seminary and were or-
dained Lutheran pastors from the same
class in 2004.
On Sept. 18, the six Trinity volun-
teers and 10 others from St. Paul's in
Boca Raton set out for the Mississippi
Delta region to help their former class-
mate in Baton Rouge. The Florida team
loaded four cars and a 28-foot rental
truck full of construction and demoli-
tion gear and headed out for the long


drive to Louisiana.
"We were looking for ways to ease the
pain of the flooding and devastation by
helping local residents take the first step
back toward normalcy," said Metro-
West resident Hahn.
"The trip was definitely rewarding
for me," said Tom White, another Or-
lando team member. "I believe I came
back a better person than when I left.
All the destruction was somewhat over-
whelming, but we were able to gain
strength from those in our group and
those we met along the way."
"Media pictures and newspaper ac-
counts of the devastation had captured
the visual destruction," said Bill Cox,
another Trinity volunteer. "But nothing
short of actually being there could be-
gin to capture the impact of the moldy,
filthy odors that came from the water-
soaked homes and other structures."
Home-away-from-home for the team
was Atonement Lutheran Church in
Metairie, La., just a few miles northeast
of New Orleans. "This was home base,"
said van Sliedrecht. "We slept there but
branched out each morning to help on
a different home rescue mission."
The first "home rescue" belonged to
a disabled woman whose home had
been flooded. In four hours, the Florida
team had completely gutted the house,
removing soggy rugs, drywall and in-
sulation, as well as most of the home's
contents, which had been rendered un-
usable by the surging waters.
"Flood waters had risen to six feet in
the home," said Orlandoan Steve Knud-
son. "The only things we were able to
salvage for her were four large pieces of
furniture, and her TV. It was a sad day
for her, but we could also see some hope
beginning to creep into her eyes as we
pulled away and she pondered the next
step toward rebuilding."
The next home rescue was already in
the second, or rebuilding stage, when
the Florida team arrived. The family of
four who lived there had already done
the dirty work of clearing the building.
The team stepped in to install drywall to
the damaged partitions, and in half a
day, they completed the second step -
getting the walls rebuilt.
. At Lutheran Church of the Pines in
Waveland, Miss., the team found wa-
ter lines and mold measuring more than
six feet high.
"After the water receded, this little
church became one of the aid distribu-
tion centers for this small town which had
mostly been wiped off the map," said
White, a volunteer who lives near Apop-
ka. "The pews, the organ and the altar
were destroyed by the high water, but it
continued to serve the community by
providing comfort and hope to all.
"The post-Katrina story of this little
church has been well documented on
several Web sites, and it became some-
what a personal thing to us to be part of
the effort to help in its preservation."
"It was just across the street from a
huge tent city housing folks who were
driven from their homes by the hurri-
cane," said van Sliedrecht. "It was also
adjacent to the local FEMA headquar-
ters, so the area was a beehive of activ-
ities.
"Another volunteer team had been
there before us," he said, "and removed
the pews and furnishings. We removed
all the drywall, sinks even the toi-
lets. Everything had been ruined by the


ravage of the floodwaters."
The congregation's president, Dale
Coleman, was permanently on site be-
cause he was living in his RV trailer on
the grounds. His own home, like about
90 percent of Waveland, had been totally
destroyed literally flattened."
"To see this career oilman softened to
teary eyes and quiet resolve to come
back from the disaster and to bring
his church back with him was the
most satisfying moment our team ex-
perienced during the entire trip," said
the Trinity pastor.
"Many grateful residents had offered
us donations for our hard work," he said,
"But it was sharing their feelings of grat-
itude and hopeful spirit like Dale's that
really made the effort worthwhile."
"The many cars and houses that were
destroyed gave me a reality check that
these were just things given to us for a
short time," said White. "The gift re-
ceived from taking the trip was a re-
newed faith that there will be restora-
tion and that, someday, children will be
playing in the yards with their pets. And
by then, all this hurt will be just a dis-
tant memory of the hurricane season of
2005."
'This was an unusual rescue mission
for Christians," said van Sliedrecht, "be-
cause what we were rescuing was peo-
ple's houses and place of worship. But
perhaps more importantly, it was res-
cuing their homes their very lifestyles
- and that meant a lot to every person
on our Florida hurricane team.
"Thousands of homes, churches and
other buildings throughout all the hur-
ricane-affected region this winter will
need moldy, mildewy materials re-
moved, walls rebuilt and rebuilding be-
gun," he said. "Anybody who reads
about our trip and hears the call to help
can get connected to our folks in
Metairie or other affected areas by phon-
ing our office or sending an e-mail to
JvanSliedrecht@trinitydowntown.org."


In a moment of levity, an unknown
fist punches through the wet 'dry'
wall in 1 of the buildings. Sixteen
Florida Lutherans loaded 4 cars
and a 28-foot rental truck full of
construction and demolition gear
and headed out for the long drive
to Louisiana. What they found
were homes with wet, soggy car-
pet, drywall that was far from dry
and insulation that they 'could
wring out' with their hands.


Jason Zavitz (right), an Ocoee-area resident,
Pastor Jon van Sliedrecht (center) and Mike
Murphy of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Boca
Raton reduce interior walls to the 2x4 studs
almost like starting back at the new-con-
struction stage.


Lutheran team members Bill Cox (right), a MetroWest-area
resident, and Tom White rip out another interior wall up to
the 6-foot-high flood level. 'Nothing short of being there
could capture the moldy odors locked inside these walls,' said
Cox.

Golf


Shingle Creek named to top 40 list


Shingle Creek Golf Club is about
to celebrate its second anniversary and
is proud to announce recent accolades
from Golfweek magazine, Corporate
and Incentive Travel magazine and
the Orlando Business Journal.
Golfweek named shingle Creek one
of the top 40 new golf courses in the
United States. Its 7,228-yard, par-72
championship course was cited by the
magazine for several things, includ-
ing the variety of memorable holes.
Other parts of the 10-part judging cri-
teria included quality of shaping, over-
all land plan, greens and surrounds,
tree and landscape management and
conditioning.
There was also judging on what
Golfweek calls its "Walk in the Park
Test," which the publication defines as
"the sense of the. place as worthy of
spending four hours on it."
As Dave Scott, director of golf at
Shingle Creek Golf Club, said at the
time of receiving the Golfweek honor,
"Shingle Creek is anything but a good
walk spoiled."
That was only the beginning. Less
than three months later, Shingle Creek
was awarded the prestigious Greens
of Distinction by Corporate and In-
centive Travel magazine.
In gaining the honor, Shingle Creek
received high marks in several critical
criteria, including location, course
condition, function set-up and food
and beverage. The resort was also cit-
ed for its commitment to excellence
and desire to improve programs and
upgrade facilities.
Corporate and Incentive wrote that


Shingle Creek was "a remarkable ode
to Florida's natural riches and leg-
endary charms" and that the resort
"has skillfully combined luxury and
business savvy to create a meeting
destination that will not only produce
successful meetings, but a memorable
Florida experience as well."
Finally, the Orlando Business Jour-
nal continued to add to the feeling that
Sbingle Creek is memorable by nam-
ing it one of Central Florida's Top-10
Toughest Courses.
Overall, more than 40,000 rounds
of golf were played at Shingle Creek
in its second year. During that time, the
resort proved itself to be a prime des-
tination for corporate and fundraising
outings by hosting 150 such events.
"Our second year has been nothing
short of terrific," said Scott. "We are
gratified that so many people have
come to realize that Shingle Creek is
one of the premier golf and hospital-
Sity destinations, both in Central Flori-
da and the entire country. Whether it' s
the challenges our golf course pre-
sents, the quality of instruction at our
renowned Brad Brewer Golf Acade-
my, or just the day-in, day-out hospi-
tality and efficiency that's so impor-
tant to our operation, we offer golfers
virtually anything and everything they
could want."
The uniqueness of the Brad Brew-
er Golf Academy programs and Play-
er Development Studio have been fea-
tured this year throughout the golfing
world, including The Golf Channel,
Golfweek, PGA Magazine and Golf
Tips magazines showcasing the vari-


ety of state-of-the-art technology for
swing analysis, club fitting, distance
calibration, putting, mental toughness
conditioning and e-Coaching online
training programs.
Brewer, a featured instructor on The
Golf Channel, and Golf Digest and
Golf Magazine's top regional in-
structor said, The Academy team is
looking forward to the new year, in-
creasing the academy's convention
and meeting clientele and servicing
guests staying at the soon-to-open
Rosen Shingle Creek.
A new offering set to debut in the fall
of 2006 is an Executive Women's
Golf Retreat to include LPGA tour
veteran Laura Baugh. Women will
find golf instruction by day and guest
speakers and hands-on seminars on a
variety of topics at night aimed at
building confidence on the golf course
socially and while conducting busi-
ness.
A 1,500-room luxury hotel is sched-
uled to"open next fall.
"I am convinced that Shingle Creek
will be an unforgettable golfing ex-
perience," said Harris Rosen, presi-
dent of Rosen Hotels and Resorts
when the resort first opened.
"David Harman's design is both in-
novative and classic while providing
a challenging and rewarding game of
golf for all skill levels. Our prime lo-
cation, the natural beauty of the
course, the first class amenities. and
our renowned commitment to excel-
lence and service will distinguish us
from all the others in the Central Flori-
da area."

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


I am a gift giving perfectionist. I make myself (and
my husband) crazy, searching for the "perfect" gift for
the people I love. No generic gifts will do... each one
has to suit the budget, the occasion and the recipient to
a'T. This time of year is both a challenge and ajoy!
Yes, it's a time-consuming passion but I love knowing
that I've given the best I can, from my heart. Watching
the person open the gift is the best part. There's that
moment when I know that I've done well.... that I real-
ly know that person well enough to choose the right
gift. It is a most satisfying, wonderful feeling.
As we celebrate Christmas this week let's think
about the best gift ever offered, God's gift of His Son.
God loves me, He loves you, so incredibly much that
He GAVE the life of His Son, Jesus. That is amazing,
astonishing, incomprehensible love. There are lots of
people in my life that I love, that I would even sacrifice
my own life for. But would I sacrifice the life of my

child to save them? Nope. But that's exactly what
God did. That is how much He loves us.
How do we receive that gift? It's not enough to just
know about Jesus... about His birth, life, death and
resurrection. God is offering this most amazing
gift...eternal life in heaven one day and abundant, ful-
filling, meaningful life right now. Wow. Yet the gift is
not automatically ours until we receive it. How do we
do that? It's a heart thing. Are you ready to give your
heart, your will, your present, your past, your future to
Him? We don't have to be cleaned up, or make our-
selves presentable to Him. He loves us and accepts us
just as we are. Just tell Him, and thank Him for the
most wonderful gift of all, from the One who knows
and loves you the best. You will never regret it, I
promise. Merry Christmas.

-The kindergarten classes at Citrus Elementary had a great 50h day of school. The kindergartners and their
,,teachers came dressed in styles from the '50s, such as poodle skirts, slicked-back hair and rolled-up jeans.
The children danced the morning away at the sock hop in the cafeteria. Each class also enjoyed listening
'to records on a record player, using Hula Hoops and drinking old-fashioned root beer and cola floats. Pic-
;tured are the teachers and para-professionals who work with the kindergarten students.

Lakeview Middle 7th-graders are studying the Middle Ages. Each student in Mrs. Reiss' geography class-
es researched and presented a project. The students brought real items, models, replicas or posters on their
topics, which ranged from peasant houses to lords' castles, serfs' clothing to kings' rich robes, daggers to
:cross bows, knights' early chain mail to full plate armor, the Crusades to the Black Death and from mythi-
,cal heroes to real ones. The projects will be used as props for the upcoming Medieval Faire. Pictured are
Ariana Anzola's Robin Hood, Nick Mitchell's castle and Katheryn Muller's rendition of a noble woman's
dress. The peasant house of thatch was made by Valdimar Leal.

Olympia High Marching Band performs in NYC
The Olympia High School Marching Band proudly displays its banner as the students line up for the Macy's
Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.


The Olympia Marching Band and Color Guard enjoy the excitement of performing in NYC.


Cappies review: Ocoee
High's 'Nuncrackers'
keeps audience laughing
Jessi Ezell-
Hagerty High School
The nuns of Mount Saint Helen's
Catholic School are broadcasting their
Christmas Special on television for the
first time, but these aren't just ordinary
nuns. Ocoee High School's recent pro-
duction of Nunsense had the audience
members out of their seats and clapping
right along.
In the basement of the school, WCON
is broadcasting a Christmas special that
is one of a kind. The nuns include a bal-
lerina, an amnesiac and a Father who
has questionable methods of entertain-
ment. On top of all that, all their Christ-
mas presents are missing in the middle
of the show. All these circumstances
call for a production full of excitement.
The entire cast had high energy, pow-
erful voices and great chemistry together
throughout the show. Every actor cre-
ated a real connection with the audi-
ence.
As one of the first nuns to go into the
audience, Sister Mary Paul (Amnesia),
played by Drianna Ambrose, kept the au-
dience laughing. Her ability to consis-
tently remain in her silly character was
impressive. She was hilarious while in-
teracting with the audience and contin-
ued to keep the laughs coming until the
end of the show.
Megan Sorley was a strong Reverend
Mother, Sister Mary Regina. She scold-
ed Sister Amnesia as if she did it all the
time. Sorley had a strong voice, even
with all of the choreography.
Being the only male in the cast (with
the exception of a schoolboy) was not
the only reason Father Virgil, played
by Daniel Boisrond, stood out so much.
His strong energy was consistent. Every
jump he made was just as high as the
first, and his every cheer was just as
loud as the first.
Sister Mary.Hubert, played by Jane
Randolph, had a voice that was heavenly.
Expertly showcased in "The Three
Kings" and especially in "It's Better to
Give," her voice was a "blessing."
The ensemble of students of Mount
Saint Helen's School Christina Ben-
nett, Willie Childs, Emma Olsen and
Anestajia Williams was on par with
the rest of the high school cast. Their
performances gave no hint that they
were eighth-graders.
The set for Nuncrackers was re-
markable. It was extremely striking for
a high school production. The set main-
tained its stability even with the some-
times-wild antics of the cast. It really
looked like a TV studio.
The nuns of Mount Saint Helen's
Catholic School were definitely ready
for lights, camera and action in the OHS
production of Nuncrackers.

12th journey through

Christmas story


This year's lead role of
Mary in CDPA's Christmas
performance was shared by
Sadie Stafford and Sarah
White, shadowed by Kathryn
Keating and Taylor Aldrich.
Centre For Dance & the
Performing Arts in Winter
Garden staged its 12th annu-
al performance of "In His
Name...We Dance" this sea-
son.
Stafford has danced in this
show since she was old
enough to be in the Ensem-
ble.
"It is a beautiful reminder
of the season and celebration
of our talented children," said
her mother, Becky Stafford.
"We get to watch our home-
town dancers as they progress
from their first semi-profes-
sional performance to the ul-
timate goal of the 'star.'
"This show touches all the
emotions as the little girls
look to the senior dancers
with awe, the senior dancers
share their knowledge and ex-
periences with the younger
dancers and a reminder to all


the moms and dads, grand
moms and granddads, of the
wonderful joyful journey we
have had between the two.
"This time we have with
our children is limited, and I
get teary-eyed every year as
I have the chance to stop and
reflect during this annual re-
minder of the gift our children
are.
"Sadie's dad and I are so
proud to be able to share with
our neighbors, family and
friends Sadie's portrayal of
Mary, as I've watched her ma-
ture into a lovely performer
and dancer who soon will be
off to college and future tra-
ditions and opportunities."
In addition, Stafford's
niece, Renee, was an angel in
the production, and Sutton
and Karen Roper contributed
to the show by performing
American Sign Language.
A final performance was
scheduled for this Wednes-
day, Dec. 21, at 7 p.m. at the
Sandra O. Stephens Fine Arts
Center at Montverde Acade-
my.

voking challenge to conventional as-
sumptions about art and popular cul-
ture in the modem age.

tion is Three Kings Day, traditional-
ly recognized by Hispanic communi-
ties as the last day of the Christmas

II. EXPLANATORY INFORMATION AND ESTIMATED COSTS SUMMARY

Overview
The Orange County Public School District continues to experience significant growth in its student enrollment. This growth has
necessitated the construction of six new elementary schools and three new middle schools that are scheduled to open for the
2006-2007 school year (four of the elementary schools will be considered at this hearing and two of the middle schools).

Procedures
Rezoning options/recommendations were discussed by the School Board in a public workshop meeting on December 5, 2005,
pursuant to a notice published in the Orlando Sentinel and other local papers. In addition, various options were presented by
knowledgeable staff members at Dr. Phillips High School on November 3 for Bay Meadows Elementary Relief. Notice of this
meeting was given by each school involved in rezoning. Rezoning advisory committees were established for providing first-
hand community involvement in the development of the options.

Preliminary Preparation Cost
Various materials and supplies used to prepare and present the recommendations to the Board and the public are projected
to cost approximately $3,000.

Impact on Construction, Furniture, and Equipment
Costs associated with opening an elementary school are approximately $14,000,000.

Staffing
Additional staff needs should result more from increased enrollment and/or program changes than from rezoning.. However,
as a result of these changes, staff would be more evenly distributed between the schools. Some additional administrative
staff may be necessary.

School Board Allocations for Materials and Supplies
There would be a limited impact on school materials and supplies for students as a consequence of rezoning because the bud-
get allocations are based on projected enrollments, which should not be significantly affected by the opening of the new schools
and the changing of attendance zones.

Impact on Overcrowding
Based on student population projections for the 2006-2007 school year, the rezoning recommendations will reduce over-
crowding at rezoned elementary and middle schools.

Other Considerations
No impact on small businesses or small cities is anticipated.

Ill. AUTHORITY
The initiator of the proposed attendance zone changes is Ronald Blocker, Superintendent of the Orange County Public
Schools. A final decision will be made by the School Board of Orange County, Florida.
These modifications are authorized under Sections 230.03(2), 230.22, 230.23, 230.232, Florida Statutes, to implement Sec-
tion 230.232, Florida Statutes.

IV. AVAILABILITY OF ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Copies of the proposed attendance zones are available between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday,
at the Educational Leadership Center, Pupil Assignment Office, 445 West Amelia Street, Orlando, Florida. Additional informa-
tion concerning transportation, facilities, staffing, materials and supplies can be obtained from the offices of School Board Ser-
vices, 445 West Amelia Street, Orlando, Florida 32801.
