Changes to park prospectus
eliminate last remnants of
Density Reduction Plan.

By Michael Laval

Winter Garden took the final steps last week
in helping secure the future of the city-owned
Trailer City mobile home park.
The elected officials went through the mo-
tions last week of making changes to the park's
prospectus, the governing regulations that cov-
er legal rights and financial obligations con-
nected to leases at Trailer City.
Last month, the commission passed an or-
dinance that eliminated key components of the
Trailer City Density Reduction Plan, which
was designed to reduce the number of trailers
from 180 to 59 by Dec. 31, 2009. The new or-
dinance cut language that required the city to
make a determination in five years on whether
to close Trailer City.
Last week's action made the same changes
to the prospectus.
At the request of Commission Carol Nichols,
City Manager Michael Bollhoefer made two ad-
ditional changes last Thursday. The setback
requirement for trailers dropped from 16 feet
to 10 feet, and separation distances will be
measured from trailer to trailer rather than
trailer to any adjacent structure, such as carports.
The new prospectus now awaits approval
from the Florida Division of Land Sales, Con-
dominiums and Mobile Homes.
On another matter, Bollhoefer announced
that the Sembler Co., which plans to build the


Pholo t'y An.rmew Ball,
Residents of Winter Garden's Trailer City mobile home park can rest easy since the elect-
ed officials voted recently to overturn plans to consider closing the park in 4 years.


1.15-million-square-foot Winter Garden Vil-
lage at Fowler Groves shopping center in south
Winter Garden, has agreed to a deal with the
Florida Department of Transportation to pay
$8.9 million for the mall's projected impact
on traffic on West Colonial Drive.
The financial agreement, Bollhoefer said,
should result in the project's approval by the
state Department of Community Affairs
(DCA).
In other business, the elected officials:


passed three ordinances that annexed, re-
zoned and amended the Future Land Use map
for 2.89 acres located at 205 Windermere
Road.
approved the final plat for Stoneybrook
West Unit 7.
accepted a $10,000 grant from the DCA
to help the city update its wastewater facili-
ties plans to serve areas with central sanitary
sewers that are within the Wekiva River basin
and currently using on-site septic systems.


Oakland Avenue Charter

puts together plan for

School of Excellence


By Amy Quesinberry

Still struggling with the D state
grade, officials with Oakland Avenue
Charter School have implemented a
School of Excellence review program
in hopes of getting that dreaded D up
a grade or two.
Kathy Healen of Imagine Schools
made a presentation to the Oakland
Town Commission on Dec. 13, out-
lining the details of the plan. Starting
Jan. 10, the three-day review will be
conducted by a team of eight employ-
ees from other Imagine schools in Cen-
tral Florida. They will make observa-
tions, commendations and recom-
mendations, interviewing both teach-
ers and parents.
Once completed, the data will be
compiled into a report, and from that in-
formation, an action plan will be put
in place for Oakland Avenue Charter.
Later in the meeting, Principal Juan
Col6n gave an update on the school.
The morning announcements are be-
ing broadcast throughout the school
on televisions donated by former May-
or Jon VanderLey and his wife, Kay.
The administration interviewed three
candidates three weeks ago for the
dean's position and will soon make a
decision. The assistant's position in
the physical education department and
two cafeteria assistants have been hired.


A YMCA reading program has been
introduced, and the lowest-performing
first- and second-graders are partici-
pating.
The school continues its communi-
ty outreach, Col6n said, by holding
quarterly PTO restaurant nights, the
latest at America Pie Pizza Company,
by helping Green Mile Ranch in Grov-
eland and by filling shoeboxes for Op-
eration Christmas Child.
In other business, the elected offi-
cials:
by consensus, authorized Mayor
Kathy Stark to sign a number of doc-
uments: an agreement for using vote
processing equipment and an election
contract, a summary of town respon-
sibilities during the General Election
March 14 and, if needed, an April II
run-off election, and an application for
a Justice Assistance Grant through the
Florida Department of Law Enforce-
ment.
learned that Officer Aaron Grassi
has resigned from the Oakland Police
Department to accept a patrol officer po-
sition with the city of Clermont. Gras-
si had been trained as the town's traf-
fic homicide investigator, said Chief
Tim Driscoll, so the department will
begin training someone in January.
postponed making a decision on
an alternative transportation impact fee
for a Palm Casual furniture store.


Ocoee sets public hearing on opting out

of early voting for the March 14 election


By Mary Anne Swickerath

Ocoee, like most other towns and
cities, is planning on opting out of han-
dling early voting for the March 14
municipal election. Early voters would
then cast their ballots at the Orange
County Supervisor of Elections Of-
fice in Orlando.
Last week, the Ocoee City Com-
mission held the first reading of a pro-
posed ordinance to have the Supervi-
sor of Elections take charge of early
voting, and the second reading and
public hearing on this issue will be
held at the commission's Jan. 3 meet-
ing beginning at 7:15 p.m. in City Hall.
According to the ordinance, "State
law allows the city of Ocoee, Florida,
to opt out of [conducting early vot-
ing], and because of financial and lo-
gistical considerations, opting out is a
proper action to take."
The early-voting period will be Feb.
27 to March 11 or 12. The final end
date of the period has not yet been of-
ficially decided by the Supervisor of
Elections.
This ordinance does not affect ab-
sentee balloting or the regular election
day voting. i


In other business, the elected offi-
cials:
approved the sole-source purchase
of garbage trucks from Nextran Corp.
for the city's new in-house collection
operation. The proposed cost of seven
garbage trucks and two recycling
trucks is $1,527,788. The vehicle
should last seven or eight years, ac-
cording to Public Works Director Bob.

equipment for the Ocoee Fire Depart-
ment's new engine.

Founders' Day $11,500 deficit.

approved hiring Herbert-Halback
Inc. to design landscaping for the me-
dians of Silver Star Road from Clarke

ver Star for a fee of $38,950.
appointed former City Clerk Jean
Grafton to the city canvassing board
for the March 14 municipal election.
appointed Mike Godek of District
1 to the Code Enforcement Board. Be-
fore this appointment, there was no
resident of District 1 on the board.

nounced at the first or second City

Tow to Go Program to combat drunk-driving


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 po-
tential drunk drivers off roadways across
the Southeast.
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 Savannah, Ga. The program runs

A Happy New Year for the Critters!

Have you ever wondered what Central Florida will look like
50 years from now?
The clearing and development of land in West Orange County is
occurring at an alarming rate As a result, many species of native
wildlife, both common and rare, are being displaced.

When a piece of land is cleared, the wildlife living there does not
pack up, move someplace else, and live "happily ever after" they
usually die!!

The Oakland Nature Presqrve is a safe home for many species of
wildlife native to the Central Florida area. Our current facilities and
those being planned not ohly make a place available for the
community to enjoy seeing our furry and feathered friends in their
natural setting, but provide a place for hands-on environmental
education about the ecology of Central Florida.

Please wish a Happy New Year to the Critters by helping us continue
in our mission of Educating. Conserving and Restoring, and make
the most generous donation you possibly can. THANK YOU for
supporting the Oakland Nature Preserve!!!

Opinion


Editor:

Thank you for your enlightening us to certain facts re-
garding the fliers sent out and to the Wagners' letter re-
garding the meeting that I too was not able to attend.
Fifty thousand dollars to send out mailings? That's just
like the good old boys in Tallahassee and Washington
would do. Thank you, Mayor, for having the foresight to
say, "No this is not a good idea." I was one of the speak-
ers at the town meeting and spoke for about four minutes,
which figures out to be $100 a minute. Was it worth it?
Time will tell.
As this was sent out by my commissioner and my un-
derstanding of a town meeting is that Commissioner
Reynolds was there to address issues pertaining to his
district and any other concerns, I was glad that our city
manager was there who wrote down and addressed the
15 issues I brought up and the issues that were brought
up by the other 10. He answered or directed the questions
to the other city officials who were there. Otherwise, it
would have been a very short meeting as I heard very
little from Commissioner Reynolds, but I did read a lot
from expressions and mannerisms. There is an old say-
ing that actions speak louder than words. When asked for
his vision for the city he said he would do that at a later
date. I guess that will be when we learn what his inten-
tions are.
I was appalled that anyone in this great country of ours
would call for the shutting down of a newspaper because
the editor didn't agree with the action of others and ex-
ercised the right to express that and to be accused of be-
ing un-American and communist.

Editor:

In his.novel 1984, author George Orwell wrote of the
future. In Orwell's future, the government was obsessed
with mind control. Part of mind control was the content
of the history texts. The government controlled what
people believed by controlling what they learned.
In Orwell's novel, the government changed the text-
books every time the government switched allies. The
government rewrote history texts to blame the govern-
ment's enemies for past wars and tragedies. When al-
liances changed, responsibility for war was altered.
The year 1984 has come and gone. Orwell's predic-
tion of government mind control has not come true.

The \Veki\ a River Basin Commission held its meet-

agenda is the Depart ment of Health's imposition of its
neu rule requiring more expensive septic systems in
the Wekiva Study Area..
The chair of the Wekiva River Basin Commission
does not like the septic system issue. The chair tries to

The Department of Health's effort to impose the costT

representations The misrepresentations include propos-
ing the ne%' rule without adequate study, hiding from
its re\ ine er the impact of the rule and blaming the new
rule on the legislature. The mistakes include the reliance
on a potentially faulty study and on information from out-

bands who are serving in Iraq, when asked, this is the
message that they are sending back. "We are proud to be
here fighting to secure the freedom and the right for the
citizens of Iraq to go to the polls and choose the persons
and the government to represent them," and to have the
right to disagree and voice that freely and they just did
that. Seventy-two percent stood in lines-for hours to ex-
ercise that right. And you are saying it is un-American
to exercise that right here? Citizens of Winter Garden
what do you say? Does this outsider reflect how you feel
about your hometown newspaper?
Four thousand and three hundred dollars worth of fly-
ers sent out, and 50 people show up. As we enter the
New Year, an election year, is this saying that the citi-
zens of Winter Garden have a "Gone with the Wind,
Clark Gable" attitude about their town and the people
elected to make the decisions on its future? Isn't it a
shame that the decisions in the past election were made
by the votes of the majority of the minority of registered
voters and that the majority of voters didn't care enough
to take the time to vote. Citizenship is a right and a priv-
ilege. What goes along with this right is the responsi-
bility to exercise that right no matter how insignificant
the election may seem. Every vote is important. I hope
that when you start to complain, find fault with an offi-
cial or what is happening in our city that your son, daugh-
ter or grandchild is old enough to be able to ask you,
"Did you take the time to vote?" Our children and the next
generation will reap from the apathy an indifference that
is being sowed today.

to fit with a vision that suits him. The chair uses recol-
lection to give authority to his position or to try to dis-
credit objection from members of the public.
The chair tries to discredit the huge cost of the de-
partment's proposed rule. The chair ignores that errors
in estimates have all come from the Department of
Health. None of the errors have come from the opposi-
tion.
The Department of Health now states that only one per-
cent of septic systems fail yearly. If this were correct,
septic systems would last 100 years. We know septic
systems normally last on average 20 to 40 years. This
is another example of the Department of Health pre-
senting incorrect data to the public.
'Worse, errors by the department were pointed out
during its presentation. The Department of Health could
not even add its numbers correct before it put them
in its computer presentation.
The department's math error did not stop the chair.'The
chair used the department's estimates to try to down-
play the substantial financial impact on present home-
owners in the Wekiva Study Area.
Whether it is the history of the Wekiva Task Force,
the history of the Wekiva Coordinating Committee or the
history of the Department of Health's rile and his sup-
port for it, the chair of the Wekiva River Basin Com-
mission must stop trying to revise history.
. A study of the impact of septic systems must be per-
formed before the Department of Health tries to impose
a rule regarding septic systems in the Wekiva Study
Area.

Along his way north, Belleville tells about those who
lived on the St. Johns, wrote about it or used it for study'
or recreation from Timucuan Indians to Victorian va-
cationers on steamboats to naturalists, such as John Muir.
and John James Audubon, "a superb marksman who first
shot everything he drew and painted."
In this beautifully written book, he describes the great
natural variety of the St. Johns and its wildlife, as well
as the damage done to the river over the years.
"In 1916," he writes, "on the former site of King.
Philip's village, ambitious loggers built the company,
town of Osceola. Here, they;
constructed homes enough
for two hundred men, in-
stalled a sawmill and
mortared a fine brick vault,f

As I thumbed through 51 issues of The West Orange
Times selecting our 2005 year-in-review photos for this
issue, I was struck by how many stories we wrote on
road construction, new shopping centers, new-school
openings and new housing projects.
It gave me pause to think about all the development that
seems to be coming at a faster and faster pace to West
Orange County and to all of our state. It made me won-
der how much more of Florida will be paved over, how
much larger our already too-
large school systems will
grow, how many more

In light of these concerns,
the most powerful book I
read this year was River of
Lakes: A Journey on Flori-
da's St. Johns River by Bill
Belleville, a Sanford resident.
Belleville, an environ-
mental writer and filmmak-
er, doesn't give us a dry sci-
entific treatise on the nature
of the St. Johns. He takes us
with him on a physical trip
from one end of this natural _
wonder to the other. He
boats and kayaks its length, I I.
sleeps on its banks, dives into
its caves and springs and
talks with scientists, river folk
and historians. He revels in
its beauty and worries for its
future.
While traveling this American Heritage River,
Belleville teaches us all that the river means, gliding
through its history, archaeology, ecology, culture and
anthropology and traveling with him is an adventure.
He begins the journey near Vero Beach and heads to
Jacksonville where the north-flowing river empties into
the Atlantic Ocean.
The opening paragraph: "Just moments after dark,
\hen the last bhaids of ti light slip away into the night,
thejunglelike %kood., outs-ide m3 tent abruptly turn on, as
if someone has thrown a switch. There are raspy screech-
es and deep, throaty grunts and the unsettling crack of
branches being snapped in the underbrush. From the riv-
er nearby, something very large splashes and then ex-
hales loudly. As I stretch out to rest, the hard-packed
shell mound under me pushes through the thin tent fab-
ric, outlining the knobby relief of thousands of fresh-
water snails gathered here by aboriginal campers cen-
turies ago."
He was not in a tropical rainforest in Latin America "but
on the banks of a river that parallels the eastern coast of
Florida."

retary; and Carolyn Greer, treasurer. Recognized were

Mary Anne Swickerath ,the "eyes and ears of
Ocoee," tried out her brand new six-speed bicycle, a
Christmas surprise from her husband and children

mode of transportation for Mary Anne's busy "Bul-
letin Board" beat.
The long-awaited revitalization of downtown Win-

The loggers missed few of
these giants, and the Osceo-'

"Not far away, the St.,

I will never look at the St. Johns again in the same
way. I will really see the river. It will not be just some'
water I have to cross to get to the beach. On my journey
with Belleville, I learned what a unique treasure it is.
Not all of Florida (yet) is a theme park or a shopping
mall or a development of gaudy, overpriced homes. But
what will the future bring?
On his Web site, www.billbelleville.com, Belleville
offers this advice: "So, after you make your way through
this site or maybe sometime before turn off your
computer, go outside and breathe deeply. Take a walk in
the woods. Snorkel or scuba dive in a spring, a lake or
river, an ocean. Paddle your canoe or kayak until you
can no longer hear the hum of the mechanized world..
Travel to a distant rainforest or reef and get to know the"
people whose lives are shaped by the wonder of it all. Or
'just sit under a tree and relax. Let our genetic predispo-

sition for the natural world kick in. You don't need mi
or anyone else to preach to you about protection or preser-
vation. You'll know what to do."

ANOTHER YEAR IN

Wow, to think that I've already had 9
Christmas and 9 New Years (well al-
most...) it's really quite amazing! There
were so many neat things about 2005 I re-
ally think I'll miss it. There was the fort
my dad built for me, and the trip I won to
Universal Studios, my grandma finally
came home from the hospital and got all
better, we went on a hunting trip over
Thanksgiving, and my awestars basketball
team was undefeated! Wow...get ready
2006...here I come!
Well, as you know, this is the time when I'm
getting ready to turn the computer back
over to my mom...You remember, she's
the greatest Realtor in the whole wide
world! She'll be back next week with all
kinds of good information for any of you
who are ready to buy or sell a house. But
while I've got your attention, I have just a
few reminders...
Naps aren't just for babies and grandpar-
ents...enjoy one every chance you get.
Hugs are for everyone.
If you can't say something nice, keep your
mouth shut.
It takes more muscles to frown than to
smile, so turn that frown upside down.
Random acts of kindness are the best kind.
Do unto others as you would have them
do unto you.
Laugh often.
Always give it your best.
Remember, there is always a rainbow at
the end of a storm.
Pay it forward.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU

Following other volunteers from

ing the completely destroyed St.
* Marks Church in Gulfport. With their
cleaning supplies, school supplies, or-
anges, generators, gasoline, dry food
items, chain saws, reciprocating saws,
hand tools and other equipment, they
were ready to offer help where it was
needed. Upon arrival in Long Beach,
Miss., the volunteers was housed in
Sthe Lutheran/Episcopal Coast Camp,
Where they slept on cots during their
stay.
They found that their help was
more needed for other projects in the
area at that time, so after attending
morning services on Sunday with
parishioners of St. Marks, they worked
at Coast Camp Disaster Relief Cen-
'ter, where they stayed. They were

Navy Lt. Comdr. Swain receives Bronze Star


Navy Lt. Comdr. Gary T. Swain,
son of Joyce Swain of Windermere,
recently received the Bronze Star
Medal and retired from the U.S. Navy
after 20 years of outstanding service
while serving as mission commander
of Naval Air Systems Command,
Patuxent River, Md.
Swain earned the prestigious medal
while serving as officer-in-charge of
a detachment assigned to support a
joint task force deployed to
Afghanistan in support of Operation
Enduring Freedom.
His guidance in the face of daily
small arms, rocket and mortar attacks
was the foundation of the operational
successes that resulted in the offens-
es against multiple enemy encamp-
ments, reconnaissance and ambush
sites, as well as the capture of enemy
personnel. This significantly improved
the safety and effectiveness of opera-
tions in a hostile environment.
SAdditionally, Swain generated dai-
ly actionable intelligence by working
directly with tactical forces. This re-
sulted in multiple successful ground op-
erations.
Swain is a 1980 graduate of W. P.
Davidson High School in Mobile, Ala.
and joined the Navy in July 1980. He
is a 1984 graduate of the U.S. Naval

New exhibit at Millenia Gallery


Visual illusions using geometric
shapes arranged and surfaced with lay-
ers of oil paint impart a depth and sense
of history. These works unfold like
boxes that have yet to be given their
form, spilling toward the viewer in Jae
Hahn's new series of paintings that
will be on display at Millenia Gallery
through Jan. 15.
A huge and celebratory painting will
be the highlight of the exhibition. Hahn
is creating a major new work, 45 feet
long by 11 feet high, entitled "Mil-
lenia." According to the artist, the work
is being constructed as a tribute to the
gallery and the arts in Central Florida.
In addition, Hahn will offer a new
form of freestanding painting/sculp-
ture called "Bottle Man." This work


has more than 30 layers and is created
on wood panels in Hahn's layered
painting style. It has two painted pan-
els facing in opposite directions and
held together by steel bars. The eight-
foot-tall work is designed to stand on
the floor, and it is very approachable.
Hahn came to the United States from
Korea in 1973 to study art. Having
graduated from Seoul National Uni-
versity's College of Fine Arts, she did
her graduate work at California State
University. Influenced by Frank Stel-
la and Donald Judd, Hahn's paintings
share their visual illusions.
The gallery is located at 41990 Mil-
lenia Blvd., Orlando, and is open Tues-
day through Sunday. For more infor-
mation, call 407-226-8701.

Your

X, Money
By Dennis R.
Gillard, CPA

HAVE YOU PROTECTED
YOUR FAMILY?
Would your family be financially secure if
tragedy struck? Before you answer, consider
the following areas.
Insurance. Do you carry the right kinds and
amounts of insurance, including life, disabil-
ity, and property? Life insurance coverage
can typically run from five to seven times your
annual earnings. Disability insurance should
pay 60-70% of your current income if you be-
come disabled. Auto and homeowner insur-
ance are needed to protect you from property
loss and personal liability, but if you have sub-
stantial assets, you should also consider an
umbrella liability policy.
Estate planning. There are basic steps that
you should take to keep your estate plan cur-
rent. Make a complete and accurate invento-
ry of your assets and their current value. In-
clude the form of ownership of each asset, and
find out if any changes should be made to re-
duce future estate taxes. Be sure you have a
current will. Consider using a durable power
of attorney to designate someone to make fi-
nancial and health care decisions for you if
you become incapacitated,
Emergency cash reserve. Do you have an
emergency fund of three to six months of your
salary to support your family during a finan-
cial setback? If your emergency fund is not
adequate to handle a financial crisis, you may
need to tap some other source, such as a home
equity loan, a margin loan against your stocks,
or a loan against the cash value of your life in-
surance. \ ..
Recordkeeping. Godd records will be help-
ful if the unexpected happen. Be sure your fi-
nancial documents and account statements are
kept in secure locations and that your family
knows where to find them.

By Michael Laval
A local boy has joined an elite frater-
nity that includes the names DiMaggio
and Mantle.
West Orange County resident and Dr.
Phillips High graduate Johnny Damon
shocked the baseball world and broke
the hearts of many Boston Red Sox fans
last week when he pledged his allegiance
to the "Evil Empire." By agreeing to a.
four-year, $52-million contract with New
York, Damon carries on the legacy of
Yankee greats Joe DiMaggio, Mickey

Mantle and Bernie Williams, who all pa-
troled centerfield in the Bronx.
Damon will also live up to the Yankee
policy prohibiting hair length and facial
hair. When he donned the pinstripes for
the New York media last Friday, we saw
the new, clean-shaven and freshly cut
Yankee Clipper.
Whil6 some people criticize Damon
for switching sides in one of sport's most
intense rivalries, I say he made the right
move. The Red Sox organization is in
total disarray. The team has been with-
out a general manager for weeks, and
only nine players remain from the 25-
man roster that won the World Series
just 14 months ago.
The fact is, Damon was Boston's play-
er to lose. In May, he publicly vowed


that he could never defect to the hated
Yankees. Over the last four years, he had
become a Red Sox fan favorite and
achieved iconic stature with his trade-
mark locks and bushy beard.
When the current free agency period
began, though, the Red Sox management
seemingly did not pursue Damon with
the intensity worthy of the game's best
leadoff hitter. After several weeks of ne-
gotiations, Boston offered a contract for
too few years worth too little money
when compared to deals made this month
by other outfielders and leadoff hitters
around the Major Leagues.
Many fans often like to complain
about the perceived lack of loyalty by
professional athletes toward their teams.
The fact is, no one in sports is more cut
throat than general managers and own-
ers.
When a player in his prime, like Da-
mon, is up for free agency, they often
expect him to take a lesser deal to stay
with the same team out of loyalty. On
the other hand, when a player doesn't
live up to expectations or is in the twilight
of his career, the team will do whatever
it takes to cut the dead weight from its pay-
rolls.
Damon said last week that the Yan-
kees pulled out all the stops in courting
him. Manager Joe Torre and superstars

Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez all
placed phone calls to help recruit Da-
mon. And, of course, Yankee owner
George Steinbrenner did what he is best
known for by backing up the Brinks truck
and making Damon an offer he couldn't
refuse.
Before you blame Damon or label him
a sell-out, ask yourself what you would
do in his shoes. As a professional ath-
lete, you have a limited window of time
to make money off your talents. Most
players retire before the age of 40. In a
single moment, an injury can destroy a
player's earning potential or even end
his career.
Damon, 32, was a Red Sox for only
four years of his life. Is that time really.
supposed to out-weigh the opportunity to
best provide for his family decades after
his retirement?
And then there's that famous Yankee
mystique. Twenty-six World Series
Championships and 38 American
League pennants have made New York
the most successful franchise in Amer-
ican sports history. Isn't it the secret fan-
tasy of every Major Leaguer to some-
day be a Yankee?
It's a long way from Dr. Phillips High
to Yankee Stadium. Congratulations,
Johnny, on your new. look and your new
team.

Here we are at the close of another year. Although
we have expectations about the coming year we don't
know what is going to happen. One thing for sure is
that we can look back and see what happened in 2005.
Or can we? I can get out my calendar and go over the
events of the past year, the vacation, business trips, and
family events like birthdays, weddings, and Christmas.
But there are some things that are still unknown that
most certainly did happen; things that not only hap-
pened but I was a part of.
You see, the Bible gives the picture that the rewards
for this life that come, in Heaven, are not going to be
"distributed" or noted until the end of time as we know
it. Why is that? Because every action, every word, and
every thought that we have has its consequence in the
present and in the future. Jesus said that our good deeds
"will carry reward in Heaven." (Matthew 6:1)

(He didn't say good deeds are the way to heaven for
He said belief in Him was the only way there.)
Now, back to the point, we don't really know what
effect our lives are having in the big picture of eterni-
ty. Jesus said we will give account for every word we
speak. (Matthew 12:36) In Philippians 2 it says to "let
our very attitude be that of Jesus, of humility, serving,
and giving of ourselves." In God's timing He will re-
veal the vast reward of a life lived for Jesus Christ.
So, what does this mean? "So be careful how you
live, not as fools but as those who are wise. Make the
most of every opportunity for doing good in these evil
days. Don't act thoughtlessly, but try to understand
what the Lord wants you to do." (Ephesians 5:15-17)
Your life will affect generations. Live like it!
From the believers at First Baptist Winter Garden

Nov. 17 marked the 70th day of school, so Mrs. Baker and Mrs. Thurman, both 4th-grade teachers at Cit-
rus Elementary, celebrated the milestone by hosting a '70s Day event. Leading up to the day, students
partnered to highlight an event for each year, as well as present 2 inventions that are both obsolete and still
in use, such as Atari and computers. On the 70th day, students presented their highlighted events while dressed
in their '70s attire. Parents got involved by donating memorabilia to the '70s Museum, which featured items
such as a lava lamp, platform shoes, albums, a disco light and even an 8-track tape. The day ended with
a picnic, dance-off and contests such as 'Best Dressed' and 'Best Dancer.'

The Winter Garden Police Department faced off against the faculty of Lakeview Middle School on Dec. 12
in an annual volleyball match to raise funds for the WGPD Toys For Tots program. Students made $2 do-
nations to view the event. Sixth-graders watched the LMS faculty walk away with a victory in a hotly con-
tested battle with the final score of 25-21. The 7th-graders watched the police narrowly escape a back-
breaking loss in the 3rd and final game. However, the 8th-graders got to see the Lakeview faculty seal the
match with a dominating victory in the 2nd game. The real winners, though, were the children who will ben-
efit from the $1,647.85 raised for the toy program. Competitors were (above) Debra Lucas, Chief Brennan,
Chris Lunsford, Bob Ryner, Ken Lininger, Jim Weis, Kevin Mitchel, Detective Allen, Officer Nefty, Officer
