When 2 chiefslose hair to cancer,


employees shave theirs off, too


George Ledford and
Amy Fulmer are eager to
return to work and a
normal schedule.

By Amy Quesinberry

Battalion Chief Amy Fulmer was-
n't given a reason why she needed to
show up at the Ocoee Fire Department
on a recent Saturday; she was just
asked to come. She certainly wasn't ex-
pecting what she saw: a crowd of co-
workers with heads as bald as hers.
Fulmer, 40, is undergoing


chemotherApy following a bilateral
mastectomy in November.
Another of the department's three
battalion chiefs, George Ledford, 46,
is fighting cancer, as well. He had
surgery after being diagnosed with
testicular cancer in August but had to
begin chemotherapy treatments in De-
cember because it had spread to one of
his lymph nodes.
About half of the OFD firefighters
decided to shave their heads in sup-
port of Fulmer and Ledford. Fulmer
said photos of the haircut session are
still circulating around the fue station.
Employees. who are more like ex-
tended family members. have also pro-


vided meals and sponsored a teen
dance fund-raiser last month. The
dance brought in $1,000, which"was
split between the two. They are both
on short-term disability leave from
their jobs at Station 1 on South Bluford
Avenue.
Fulmer began having discomfort
and pain in her right breast last Au-
gust. Despite several clear mammo-
grams, she made an appointment with
a specialist. "and within five minutes
she found this small, small lump." she
said. "I couldn't e\en feel it."
Ha\ ing been diagnosed w ith breast
cancer, she opted for the radical
surgery.


"I have a family history," she ex-
plained. "My mother was diagnosed at
40 and passed away at 45. I was 19."
Amy Fulmer's brother was just 5 at
the time of their mother's death, and
her sister was 15 the same age as
Fulmer's daughter, Brittani, a student
at Ocoee High School. Amy and her
husband of 22 years, Greg, also have
a son, Nicholas, who is 22 and grad-
uating from college this year.
Five-day-in-a-row treatments have
left Ledford weak.
"It takes me four or five days to start
feeling good," he said.

Court ruling vindicates Sand Lake Hills rabbi


Since 2001, Rabbi
Joseph Konikov has been
fighting a legal battle with
Orange County to
preserve his right to pray
in his home.

By Kathy Aber

A Jewish prayer celebration two.
weeks ago ended Rabbi Joseph
Konikov's five-year struggle to hold
prayer meetings in his home at 6756
Tamarind Circle in Orlando. A small
group of family and close friends gath-
ered with the rabbi to give thanks and
praise for the decisive victory issued
Jan. 20 by Judge John Antoon of U.S.
Federal District Court.
The judge's order confirmed
Koniko' 's challenge that the "Orange
County Code's regulation of religious
organizations is unconstitutionally
%ague" and declared that Section 38
of the code. h which regulates acti\ ites
of religious organizations. is "\ oid."
In 2001. the Orange Countr Code
Enforcement Board ordered the rabbi
and his family) to stop holding prayer
meetings in his home because he was
in violation of the county code for op-
erating a synagogue or any functions
relating to it at his home. He % as or-
dered to stop the prayer meetings w ith-
in 60 days or be fined $50 per day if he
continued
In 2002, the rabbi filed a federal law-
suit in the Middle District of Florida.
By June 2005. the fines totaled
$55.500
'The Jan. 20 ruling specifies that the
county la\ targets religious assem-
blies because other groups meeting
ith the same frequency. such as Cub
Scouts or friends gathering to watch
sports events, would not iolate the
code.
Attorneys for the rabbi maintain that

the county has no right to appeal this
ruling.
Gary Glassman, who represents Or-
ange County in this case, told The IIest
Orange Timts last week that the coun-
ty believes it can appeal the ruling but
has decided not to at this time.
"The bottom line is "e don't agree
\w ith the court's ruling." said Glass-
man. "We could appeal but the [prayer]
activity has diminished greatly."
In response to the court ruling.
Glassman said the county would re-
view the deficiencies in its code but it
would take time to decide how to ad-
dress it. In ume. the country zoning de-
partment will recommend changes to


the Board of County Commissioners
for its approval.
Rabbi Konikov told the Times Mon-
day that friends and family are cur-
rently gathering with him for prayer
on Saturday. Though the numbers
vary, Jewish tradimon requires a quo-
rum for prayer meetings, so usually at
least 10 individuals participate.
The rabbi moved to Central Flori-
da from New York and is part of
Chabad. an evangelistic Jewish move-
ment that is decentralized, -His con-
gregation is called Chabad of South
Orlando. and it has an office and syn-
agogue on Universal Boulevard near
Sand Lake Road used for Hebrew


school and special services.
To add to the rabbi's plight, the Sand
Lake Hills Homeowners Association
sued him for violating the neighbor-
hood's bylaws. This suit was resolved
through mediation.
Ted McDonald, a neighbor of
Konikov's at 6745 Tamarind Circle,
is president of the Sand Lake Hills
Homeowners Association. He spoke
to the Times on Monday but would not
discuss terms of the settlement because
the court had instructed him not to.
McDonald said there had been little
change in the frequency or size of the

Oakland chief

presents

annual report

By Amy Quesinberry

Timothy Driscoll, the chief
of police in the town of Oakk
land for more than four years,
presented his 2005 annual re-
port to the Oakland Town
Commission at its Jan. 24
meeting.
As he does every year, the
chief outlined the depart-
ment's activities during 2005
and its goals for the coming
year and broke down the
crime statistics. He also pro-
vided photographs and de-
tails about the police admin-
istration. which h includes
himself, Lt. Barry J. Kelly,
sergeants Rene6 Kelley and
Wesner Osselyn, four offi-
cers (Gina Adams, Ramon
Garcia, Donald Melville and
Scott Wetherhold), seven re-
serve officers (Peter Graham,
Edward Henry, Scott Koffi-
nas, David Larson, Lynn Pet-
tingill, John Simone and
Steven Valente), administra-
tive assistant Katie Guthrie
and crossing guards Cheryl
Gibson and Jeri Herd.
(Already in 2006, the de-
partment has sworn in two
additional reserve officers,
Joshua Smith and Charles
Calhoun.)
Driscoll said 2005 allowed
the department to recommit
itself to "quality police ser-
vice" after spending part of
2004 moving into a new fa-
cility and then surviving
three damaging hurricanes.
Also in 2005, the OPD de-
veloped the town's first for-
malized Neighborhood
Watch Program \within the
John's Landing subdivision,
provided safety programs to
Oakland Avenue Charter
School, received extensive
training on missing children
investigations and introduced
the "I Prevent Crime" pro-
gram.
Other details in the report
include the police department
budget, the community polic-
ing program and a break-
down of criminal activity.
"Originally introduced in
2002," Driscoll wrote, "this
report now assists in provid-
ing crime patterns within the
town of Oakland that will
help us create proactive ap-
proaches and techniques to
reduce and help prevent fu-
ture crime."

Crime in 2005
"Oakland was certainly not
without crime in 2005,"
Chief Driscoll wrote in his
annual report. "The year be-
gan with a major burglary to
a business and ended with
two robberies. Beginning in
May, several aggravated as-
sault and domestic violence
crimes began to occur in

Messiah volunteers head to Mississippi


* More volunteers from Church of
the Messiah in Winter Garden set out
for Long Beach, Miss., to continue
helping communities'in that area re-
cover from damages from Hurricane
Katrina. This time, seven members
made the journey. Bob Somers of
Oakland and Tom Johnston of Grov-
eland departed on a recent Saturday
morning, while the other five Ada
Athill, a retired nurse from Winter
Garden, Steve LaFave of Clermont,
Chris Walden, the Rev. Tom Ruther-
ford, student Chris Walden and Win-
ter Garden resident Marc Bujnicki -
left later that day.
In addition helping repair the phys-
ical situation in Mississippi, Bujnicki
and Walden said, they wanted "to
bring some joy and happiness back
into the lives" of these residents.
Athill worked in the clinic that had
been set up at the Coast Camp Disas-
ter Relief Center, where the group was
housed.
The other members of the crew


were ready to swing hammers, cut
trees, help run machinery, paint and,
in general, help out where needed.
They were aware there is a great


deal of help still needed throughout
the Gulf Coast area and were "looking
forward to helping bring just a little
relief," they said.

He was scheduled for a follow-up
treatment last week, and then, he said,
"I could be done. I am just crossing
my fingers."
Ledford has been out of work since
he began treatments Dec. 6 and is ea-
ger to get back to the station.
"I've never missed anything so bad
in my life," he said. "The camaraderie
there I just miss so much."
He was hired as a firefighter 23
years ago. He lives in Zellwood with
his wife of 25 years, Patty. They have
one son, Brett, 18, a senior at Apop-
ka High.
Hired in 1989 as a firefighter/EMT,
Fulmer said she isn't used to all this

fully in March. She has endured

However, he said, "Overall, crime
statistics for 2005 remain consistent
with national trends and lower than
the Florida Crime Index. Arrests were
made on the majority of serious
crimes, and others remain under in-
vestigation today."
He also stressed that crime usually
accounts for "less than 20 percent of
a police department's annual activity
load."
The good news: no murders have
been committed in Oakland in the last
eight years, and in 2005, no reports
of rape or arson were reported.
With an increase in population -
from 850 residents in 1998 to ap-
proximately 2,000 last year comes
an increased opportunity for crime.
Oakland experienced a high number
(13) of aggravated assault cases in
2005.
"It is not exactly known why there
was such a large increase, but most
incidents involved domestic violence
situations," Driscoll said. He added

Then she can work her way back to

Fire Chief Richard Firstner is ready
for the pair to return; as well. He told
The West Orange Times: "Chief Ful-
mer and Chief Ledford have always
displayed the highest level of pro-
fessionalism in performing their du-
ties as firefighters, which included
bravery in the face of very danger-
ous and demanding circumstances,
but that is nothing compared to the
courage and determination that both
are displaying in the battle against
these terrible personal illnesses.
"That makes them heroes in my





that a firearm was used in four of the
assaults, and that nine of the 13 cases
were cleared by arrest.
The town experienced a steady
number of burglaries; the total re-
ported increased by seven, but non-
residential burglaries decreased from
19 to 15. A high number of forced-
entry burglaries occurred when a
group of vehicles was broken into in
John's Landing last summer. In addi-
tion, 12 motorcycles and three Seg-
way transporters were taken from a
local motorcycle business.'
Theft (in which no use of force, vi-
olence or fraud is needed to occur) is
broken down into nine sub-classifi-
cations, including purse snatching and
shoplifting and thefts from automo-
Sbiles ($20,201 last year) and coin-op-
erated machines ($1,556).

S"It's not about religion," said Mc-

number of vehicles in his driveway

Reader opinions

Letters to the editor


Political consultant defends use of anonymous letter


Editor:
Your recent editorial and the letters from the usual 3 or 4
folks that don't care for the "new" politics in Winter Garden
deserve a response.
Casting aspersions on my character and my stewardship
of Ax the Tax and "The Guetzloe Report" while condemin-
ing my alleged character assassination of certain political
individuals in Winter Garden is certainly duplicitous, or sim-
pler language, a case of the pot calling the kettle black.
ALL of the allegations against me through the years have
come from political opponents such as the one you make re-
garding Maitland and our battle against, the Mayor and his
hand-picked city attorney. Your information comes exclusively
from the discredited Orlando Sentinel, who after over a dozen
defeats at the hands of Ax the Tax, is no friend of the taxpayers
of Central Florida.
The allegations against Mr. Mask come directly from your
own Winter Garden citizens, and I stand by the comments
made on the air.
Unfortunately, you and Mr. Mask have taken the com-
ments out of context, and for thatI am truly sorry. I never called
Mr. Mask a pedophile or even implied that he was; I simply
stated my opinion that Mr. Mask's activities in continuing to
belittle, embarrass and harass the citizens of Trailer City


must end. If Mr. Mask was attempting to gather informa-
tion to report well meaning citizens of Trailer City to code
enforcement authorities as the letter clearly establishes, then
Mr. Mask should deal with adults and not approach children
to conduct his personal vendetta against Trailer City.
Both The Guetzloe Report and Ax the Tax enjoy great
popularity among the citizens of Winter Garden and West Or-
ange County, and I will continue to speak out on the issues
facing our communities, and I hope you will also.
The voters of Winter Garden spoke loud and clear last
March for a change in City Hall, a change that I was honored
to be a part of.
The days of the good 'ol boys running Winter Garden is
over and good riddance. Your newspaper was 0 and 3 in the
elections and then batted zero again for the city commission
appointment. Maybe your hostility is better directed against
a majority of the citizens of Winter Garden; they voted for
change and will probably continue to do so in the next elec-
tion.
I wish Mr. Mask well and hope that we can keep the de-
bate on the future of Winter Garden out of the gutter and in
the open.

Portofino Bay receives top concierge award


Guests staying at the Portofino Bay
Hotel at Universal Orlando benefit
from the service and attention of Cen-
tral Florida's Concierge of the Year.
James Howald, manager of club
concierge and VIP services at Portofi-
no Bay, received the Central Florida
Concierge Association's top award.
Howald has been a concierge for sev-
en years.
"This award is especially note-
worthy because we live in the coun-
try's second-largest hotel market,"
said Paul Leclerc, general manager
of the Portofino Bay Hotel. "For
James to be recognized as the best in
SCentral Florida, where there are so
many experienced and well-versed
concierges, is truly an honor, and we
;j are so proud to have him on our team
at Portofino."
Many of the requests Howald has
accommodated at Portofino Bay qual-
ify as extravagant. He once turned the
hotel's Presidente Suite into an ar-
cade, arranged for the rentals of pri-
vate jets and yachts and even removed
a specific color of furniture from a
suite because of a guest's supersti-
tions.


JAMES HOWALD


"The thrill of being a concierge is
being able to find anyone anything,
anywhere at any hour of the day; of-
ten at a moment's notice," said
Howald. "You could say that I am
hard wired for service."
Portofino Bay Hotel was the first
on-site Loews Hotel at Universal Or-
lando and has received recognition
as one of the country's best hotels.

Local pharmacy offers solution

to high prescription drug costs


The Medicine Shoppe, located
at 646 S. Dillard St. in Winter Gar-
den, is helping its customers deal
with the rising costs of prescrip-
tion drugs and insurance co-pays
with a single-price program.
"No one should ever have to
make a choice between getting a
prescription filled or buying gro-
ceries or paying the heating or
electric bill," said Joe Ibssa and
Sam Amin, pharmacists and own-
ers of the Winter Garden Medicine
Shoppe. "There is a simple and af-
fordable solution that most peo-
ple can benefit from, even if they
have prescription insurance cov-
erage."
In many cases, people could be
paying as much as three dollars or
more a day simply for the conve-
nience of taking a medication once
daily instead of two or three times
a day. In other cases, Ibssa added,
people are paying extra for the lux-
ury version of a drug when the
standard version will work just as
well and cost substantially less.


RE/MAX Town Centre
renovating WO office
RE/MAX Town Centre, an Orlan-
do-based residential and commercial
real estate firm, has begun renovating
its new offices at 4110 Winter Gar-
den-Vineland Road in West Orange
County.
Charles Orden, principal of
RE/MAX Town Centre, said the
14,000-square-foot facility will pro-
vide an office location for about 50
real estate professionals. Orden said
he plans to occupy 11,000 square feet
and lease 3,000 square feet of space
to a mortgage broker.
Construction of the new offices
will cost more than $2 million, ac-
cording to Orden. Last year,
RE/MAX Town Centre recorded
sales of more than $300 million. Or-
den projects sales in 2006 to top the
$500 million mark.


"Introducing a single-price pro-
gram for medications in our com-
munity is exciting," said Ibssa.
"Now people will be able to af-
ford their medications and know
exactly how much their medica-
tion will cost so they can budget ac-
cordingly and not have to go broke
doing so."
The Medicine Shoppe has a list
of medications for arthritis, dia-
betes, depression, high blood pres-
sure, high cholesterol and much
more. Local physicians and other
prescribing practitioners, Ibssa
said, have been supplied with a
full selection of medications to
chose from for less than $20.
Even people forced to utilize a
mail order program, he added, will
save money while enjoying the
comfort and convenience of do-
ing business with a community
pharmacist.
Enrollment in the program can
be done in person or over the
phone by calling the Medicine.
Shoppe at 407-656-0081.

Bay Hill resident Terry Stokes re-
cently began working for A Pre-
mier Class Realty. Stokes has 34
years of experience in the luxury
real estate market.

MANAGING A
SUCCESSFUL
CONCURRENT CLOSING
Concurrent closing on two properties is
common in real estate today because they
eliminate the need to move twice and the
net proceeds from the sale can be used as
down payment on the purchase.
A professional Realtor can minimize
the stress when two transactions close on
the same day. Timing is the most crucial is-
sue because certain events must proceed
others, and all parties to the transaction
(buyers, sellers, realtors, lenders, and tile
company) must be kept appraised of all de-
tails.
Choose a date for the closing that will re-
alistically allow enough time to complete
all the required work. Then allow a few
days extra, if possible! Avoid scheduling
a concurrent closing on the last day of the
month in order to avoid problems if a last
minute delay requires pushing the trans-
action into the next month.
For a smooth.transaction, it helps to
schedule both closings at the same title
company and with the same officer: The
main benefit is timing in the transfer of
funds. Too long a delay can throw the trans-
action into the next dayi If the properties are
in different cities or states, it is better to
close on the home you are selling the day
before closing the home you are purchas-
ing..
If you would like to talk further about
buying or selling real estate, please con-
tact Libby Tomyn at Century 21 Profes-
sional Group. Call me on my personal mes-
sage line, (407) 570-0318.

Residents travel to Olive Garden's institute, in Italy


Two Winter Garden residents (and
Olr.e Garden associates) iecentl,
joined several other restaurant team
members from across the United
States on ac ullna;: adventure in
Itall. that included training at the
cor:'rra:. 's Cuir-a~r institutee of Tuu-

Virginia Kneal. a cuiLhar assistant
at the Olive Garden on Apopka-
Vineland Road, Orlando, and Justin
White. a certified trainer at the Al-
tamonte Springs location, were
among the attendees.
The training program is designed
to bring the Italian dining experi-
ence alive for the 100 Olive Garden
managers who attend the weeklong
immersion annually and, upon their
return, to their restaurant teams and
guests. The program began six years
ago and just this year expanded itto
include team members who are not
managers but who hold a leadership
position within the restaurant.
At the institute, attendees spend
time learning the time-honored tra-
ditions of Italian cooking.
"What inspired me most was the
care and attention to detail that took
place in the kitchen and the relaxed
pace at the dinner table," said Kneal.
'Chefs carefully inspected every in-
gredient and selected only the fresh-
est ones to use in each dish. Then, at
the table, we never felt rushed. 1We
took time to savor the food and wine

Ocoee


Ocoee Police Volunteer of the Year chosen


A different kind of birthday party
Ocoee resident Rachel Searcy turned 14 Jan. 10, but instead of having a birthday party, she held a fund-
raiser for breast cancer. The bowling event took place at Carter Family Bowl in Winter Garden on Friday,
Jan. 13, from midnight to 6 a.m. Rachel raised $500, and of that, $400 was sent to the Marjorie Fund, a foun-
dation named after her grandmother Majorie L. Kisselback in New York who is a 9-year breast cancer sur-
vivor. The remaining $100 will go to the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life. With Rachel (top left)
are her friends, I-r: top, Amanda Graziano, Caitlin Ramsey, Brittany Montague; and, bottom, Heather Shaw
and Jessica Dasher. Rachel, an 8th-grader at Lakeviw Middle School, thanks her friends and Carter Fami-
ily Bowl for helping with the fund-raiser. Rachel is the daughter of Patricia and Rick Searcy.


At the hop
The Crawford Tire Relay for Life
Team held its annual dance Jan. 28
in the Beech Recreation Center in
Ocoee. The theme this year was a
'50s sock hop. Best dressed were
Kirk Farr and Sharon McGowan,
at right. Above, left to right: West
Orange Relay for Life board mem-
bers Mike Kennington, Sherry
Wise, Linda Simmons, Kathy Tay-
lor and Judy Kirkland. A special
thanks goes to Linda Simmons
and Judy Kirkland for the out-
-standing decorations, including an
old-fashioned malt shop motif with
small juke boxes on each table. All
money made from the event will go
to the American Cancer Society.


Because of his outstanding com-
munity service, the Citizen Advisory
Council for the Ocoee Police Depart-
ment has named Harrison Grogan as
the Police Volunteer of the Year. Har-
rison, who is only 17 years old, has
served as an Ocoee Police Explorer
since September 2002 and has risen
to the rank of post lieutenant.
In 2005, Harrison donated more
than 140 volunteer hours to the com-
munity in the form of multiple graffi-
ti-removal projects and traffic control
for parades, road races and special
events.
He has chaperoned teen dances, at-
tended countless child fingerprinting
and safety events and assisted with
traffic control at the city's DUI and
vehicle safety checkpoint. These vol-
unteer hours on many occasions saved
the city the expense of paying an of-
ficer to cover these responsibilities.
"Police Explorers, as a general rule,
do a great deal of volunteer work,"
said Ocoee Police Officer Tom
Maroney, "Harrison goes above and
beyond even those standards."
He represented the post when he
marched with the Police Honor Guard
in the Founders' Day Parade, and he
emceed the Explorer dunk tank fund-
raiser during the Founders' Day Fes-
tival.
Harrison also represented the Ex-
plorer post and OPD, along with Hon-
or Guard members from the U.S.
Army 419th Military Police Detach-
ment, during a homecoming ceremo-
ny in January of last year.
In addition, Harrison recently as-
sisted the Ocoee police and the Flori-


HARRISON GROGAN
da Alcohol and Tobacco with un-
derage alcohol stings, as part of a
crackdown on underage alcohol
sales.
In 2004, Harrison volunteered to
help run the hurricane shelter at the
Ocoee Middle School, and in 2005 he
used that experience to assist Hurricane
Katrina victims by traveling with a
convoy of Ocoee volunteers to Mo-
bile, Ala., to establish a Red Cross
shelter there.
"His contributions to our community
have been great," said Officer
Maroney.
Other nominees for this award in-
cluded Ryan Colbert, for coordinat-
ing a relief effort convoy to establish
the shelter in Mobile after Hurricane
Katrina, and John Grogan, for his vol-
unteer work for the Ocoee Neighbor-
hood Restorative Justice Program, aju-
venile court diversion program for
first-time offenders.


Ocoee Rotary raises funds for Pierce
Orange County Sheriff's Deputy 1st Class Adam Pierce recently re-
ceived a $2,500 check from Dr. Angela Osborne on behalf of the Ro-
tary Club of Ocoee. Pierce, an Ocoee resident, was shot and para-
lyzed last October while on duty. The Rotarians raised money at a hol-
iday dinner in Windermere to help Pierce with his continuing medical
care. Together with the Ocoee Rotary, Jesse Taylor Catering and
Ocoee Tire, a total of $3,500 was raised for the event. Spring Lake El-
ementary's media center will use its portion to buy books.

'Miracle Worker' at
Repertory Theatre
The stirring dramatization of the
story of Helen Keller, The Miracle
Worker, is currently offered at the Or-
lando Repertory Theatre and runs
through Feb. 26.
Director Chris Jorie has double cast
the role of Helen to make the perfor-
mance schedule- 28 shows more
manageable for the two 12-year-old
actresses, Lexi Langs and Sarah Stew-
art. They rehearse simultaneously, tak-
ing turns in scenes and learning from
each other's interpretations.
"They are executing the 'same
blocking and the same mechanics,"
said Jorie, "yet they are creating two
very different characters. It's amaz-
ing to watch."
The youngsters have the benefit of
performing alongside such seasoned
actors as Avis-Marie Barnes as Viney
and Erin Beute as Anne Sullivan.
"To me, Helen Keller is tantamount
with Rosa Parks,' said Jorie. "She
changed the way the world viewed the
'disabled' and was a tireless activist for
equal rights for all regardless of
ability, means, race or gender. Her
story is about the triumph of the human
spirit, set in a time and place of major
historical significance. This is a
quintessential piece of American dra-
ma.".
.Tickets are $9 for youth under 18
and $13 for adults. Call 407-896-7365
or visit www.orlandorep.com for
reservations and performance times.

Golden Rule Foundation plans
golf and tennis tournaments


The Golden Rule Foundation, a
not-for-profit organization that
strives to empower children with the
knowledge they can make a differ-
ence in the lives of others, is planning
several fund-raising events this
month.
The organization's annual gala
took place Feb. 4 at the Rosen Cen-
tre hotel. It was themed "The Art of
Giving." And artists literally paint7
ed works during the event that were
later auctioned.
The foundation is planning its in-
augural Tennis Classic on Feb. 12
at Bay Hill. The Pro-Am event is a
first for the foundation.
Then on Feb. 13, the foundation
will host a Celebrity Golf Tourna-
ment at Isleworth Country Club with
players from the 1972 Miami Dol-
phins team being paired with local
players to compete in the event.


The foundation creates and im-
plements age-appropriate service
projects for children. These projects
are hands-on learning programs con-
ducted during the school day in or-
der to give all children the opportu-
nity to participate. Programs include
helping hurricane victims, assisting
the elderly, reading to the blind, aid-
ing the sick and disabled, working
with needy children and beautifying
the environment.
"Volunteers are chaperones and
mentors and they are role models in
teaching children the art of giving
while demonstrating their volun-
teering spirit," said Executive Di-
rector Henry Vales.
For information on the organiza-
tion, to volunteer or to participate in
the fund-raising tournaments, call
Vales at 407-647-4047 or e-mail him

Bay Hill Champion Kenny
Perry prepares to defend title


For years golf professional Kenny
Perry had a difficult time deciphering just
how he should try to play the champi-
onship course at Arnold Palmer's Bay
Hill Club. The first seven times he en-
tered the tournament Perry made the
cut six times, but he finished no better
than a tie for 32nd in 1991.
"I'd say it's optically challenging,"
Perry said of the par-72 layout Palmer
has tweaked over the years and now
measures 7,267 yards. "It's got water
everywhere and it's intimidating. I've
never really had much success there un-
til the last few years, and, why, I don't
know. And last year, well, I guess it was
just my time."
Indeed. In the 2005 Bay Hill Invita-
tional presented by MasterCard, Per-
ry's time certainly arrived. His closing
70 gave him a 12-under-par 276 total
and two-stroke victory over Vijay Singh
and Graeme McDowell.
Perry survived a late charge by Siggh,
who made up three strokes on Perry
coming to the famed par-four 18th hole.
But Singh fanned a seven iron off the
rocks and into the water in front of the
green at the home hole for a double bo-
gey,.and Perry converted a routine two-
putt par to capture his eighth PGA Tour
title. At age 44 he became the oldest
Bay Hill winner.
Both Singh and McDowell earned
consolation prizes. Singh rose to No. 1
in the Official World Golf Ranking
again, passing Tiger Woods with the
runner-up finish. McDowell, of North-
ern Ireland, shot a flawless 66 to tie
Singh for second place and earn aberth
in the Masters. Perry, who has finished
in the top 25 each of his last four starts
at Bay Hill, including runner-up in 2003,
earned the respect of the tournament
host, who in December wrote him a con-
gratulatory note that Perry intends to
have framed.
"Arnold wrote me a nice letter at
Christmastime, congratulating me and
the rest of the guys on the Presidents
Cup (which the U.S. won)," Perry said.
"He also wrote that he was glad that I was
his champion and was looking forward
to seeing me." Though many might re-
member Singh's error down the stretch,
Perry's play was exceptional all week,
and he certainly earned the victory. He
ranked fourth in both driving distance and
accuracy and led the field in greens in
regulation with a 79.2 percent average.
His putting was steady enough to con-
vert 17 birdies, third most in the field.
"I drove it great that week ... split
every fairway. I knew I wasn't going
to miss a fairway," Perry said. "And I


kept flagging it from the fairways, and
I made some nice putts.
"It was a special win, but, then,
they're all special," Perry added. "I love
being the champion of Colonial. That's
a special place for me, too, with Ben
Hogan, and his mystique, hanging
around that area. And I've got Jack
Nicklaus' title at Muirfield Village. So
it's pretty neat the titles I've won, and
the great men that I get to honor. Still,
Arnie is the king. It's neat to be his
champion."
It's considerably more rewarding giv-
en that it was a long time coming but
Perry said he's far from finished.
"I'm hanging in there pretty good for
an old guy. I'm definitely looking for-
ward to playing well there again -now
that I've got the hang of things."

vitational presented by MasterCard, or

Olympia football to host golf fundraiser
The Olympia High School Football Booster Club will host golf
tournament fundraiser to benefit the Titan football team.
The event, set for April 29 at Celebration Golf Club, will raise
funds to pay for the team's weight room equipment, uniforms, trav-
el expenses and more. A field of 144 golfers is expected to partici-
pate in what Booster Club organizers hope will become an annual event.
"It takes $1,000 per player, per year to meet these needs," said
Elaine Anderson, tournament chairwoman and Titan Booster. "With-
out local community support, we will be unable to provide the nec-
essary elements to put our Titan football team on a competitive play-
ing field."
A raffle held at the event will feature gift certificates to restau-
rants, spas and hotels, jewelry, art and tickets to Orlando Magic
games, theater performances and theme parks.
Donations, including cash, prizes, promotional products and spon-
sorships will be greatly appreciated, Anderson said.
For more information, contact Anderson at 407-701-2804.

Money
'" By Dennis R.
Gillard, CPA

DON'T MISS THESE OFTEN
OVERLOOKED DEDUCTIONS
If you itemize deductions on your tax return, ev-
ery additional deduction you find will save you
money. Here's a sampling of often-missed de-
ductions. As you review the list, be aware that
certain miscellaneous deductions are deductible
only to the extent they exceed 2% of your adjust-
ed gross income (AGI), and medical expenses are
deductible only to the extent they exceed 7.5% of
your AGI. Also, itemized deductions are limited
for higher-income taxpayers.
Often-missed deductions:
* Disaster losses not reimbursed by insurance.
* Job-hunting travel and telephone expenses.
* Employment agency and job counseling fees.
* Costs for resume preparation.
* Union or professional association dues.
* Specialized work clothing or small tools
used at work.
* Points paid by you on a new home loan.
* Points paid by a seller on your behalf.
* Points paid on refinancing your home
mortgage (deductible pro rata over the life
of the loan).
* Remaining undeducted points on a prior
refinancing when you refinance again.
* Your actual expenses or 140 a mile for
driving in doing charitable work
(larger deduction if driving is in conjunction
with 2005 hurricane charity work).
* Gambling losses, but only to the extent
of your winnings.
Fees paid for the preparation of your
tax return.
For assistance in identifying all the deductions to
which you are entitled, contact our office. We are
here to help you pay the lowest tax allowed under
the law.

you for a job well done by all of the students in the fall 'Reader's Digest' fund-raiser. The school met its goal
of catalog sales. The parent volunteers made it an extra safe day of fun and excitement with inflatable
slides, climbing walls and obstacle courses. The day ended with a snow cone for everyone.

The festival was attended by 27 local
high schools from throughout Orange
and Seminole counties.
The WOHS students took top hon-
ors in eight of the 15 competitive cat-

place out of 21 productions. The pro-
duction featured beautiful costumes

moving 12-foot columns.
The columns "magically" floated
across the stage to create various lo-
cales. This magic was executed by
student technicians who were sta-
tioned in each of the columns. These
techs were nicknamed "column rats"
and were awarded Best of Show tech-
nical crew. In addition to those tech-
nicians, Sarah Van-Alstine was named

Ocoee-Hig


Ocoee High students enjoy a break from their studies to celebrate their academic achievement.


Thirteen DICE (Developing Intelligent and Creative English) students from Brazil spent 3 weeks at Citrus
Elementary recently. They are pictured with Eloisa Lima, director of DICE, and her teachers Juliana Mano,
Rodrigo Neves and Alessandra Lopes.


DICE visitors
Students from the DICE Program
in Brazil recently spent three weeks at
Citrus Elementary. The 13 students
entered their host classrooms and
were totally immersed in the English
language.
The DICE (Developing Intelligent
and Creative English) Program is
based on the psychogenetic theory
of Jean Piaget. In this program the
child develops intelligence while ac-


quiring language through games and
hands-on activities. This increases
the possibility that the child will learn
to speak the new language without
the accent of his or her native lan-
guage.
Not only did the Brazilian students
learn from their new friends, but the
Citrus students also had the oppor-
tunity to learn more about the Brazil-
ian culture.
An exhibit featuring arts and crafts,


as well as soccer, from Brazil was set
up for the CES classes to tour. The
DICE teachers went into classrooms
to teach students Portuguese. The
DICE students put on a performance
about their home city, Rio de Janeiro,
and the DICE staff prepared a Brazil-
ian luncheon for the Citrus staff.
A big thank-you goes to Eloisa
Lima, director of the DICE Program,
for bringing this wonderful opportuni-
ty to CES.

SVolunteer cooks JP Hamilton (athletic trainer), Dan McParland (parent volunteer), Mike Armbruster (prin-
cipal) and Bernie Hendricks (band director) cook up some of the 1,000 burgers and hot dogs to help cele-
brate the students' accomplishments at Ocoee High School.


Honor Roll Celebration
In keeping with Ocoee High's mis-
sion to create a healthy community
where the fundamental purpose is
learning and in trying to foster a culture
of academic rigor, the school is basing
the honor roll on weighted semester
grade-point averages and using the
honor designations associated with col-
lege graduation summa cum Jaude,
magna cum laude and cum laude.
iMany colleges, including the ones
OHS's four houses are named after,
tuse percent rather than GPS ranges
to determine the three levels of cum
laude.
Summa cum laude (with highest hon-
or) is the top five percent of all students
based on weighted semester GPA.
This worked out to be all students with
a weighted GPA of 4.33 and above,
wnticn is about 170 students.
Magna cum laude (with great hon-


or) is the next 10 percent of all students.
The approximately 300 students in this
group have a weighted semester GPA
of 3.83 to 4.33, not inclusive.
Cum laude (with honor) is the next 15
percent of all students. The approxi-
mately 430 students in this group have
a weighted semester GPA of 3.33 to
3.83, not inclusive.
The honor roll consists of the top 30
percent of all students at OHS. By us-
ing the top 30 percent, students are en-
couraged to continue to improve as the
target will continually move higher as
more students attempt to achieve the
honor roll.
The Student Government Associa-
tion Renaissance Program hosted a
lunchtime cookout recently on the foot-
ball field for all students who earned
the honor roll this past semester.
Principal Mike Armbruster, Band Di-
rector Bernie Hendricks, athletic train-
er JP Hamilton and parent Dan Mc-


Parland grilled cheeseburgers and hot
dogs while Radio Station 102 JAMZ
provided music and prizes.
The students were able to spend the
full 90-minute lunch time with their
friends while they ate and played foot-
ball, soccer or Frisbee.
Everyone had fun, and it was great
to see 900 students with a great aca-
demic focus enjoying the moment.

FCAT tutoring
Ocoee High School is holding FCAT
tutoring after school Monday through
Thursday from 3:30-6:30 p.m. The tu-
toring for reading is Monday and
Wednesday, and math tutoring is held
Tuesday and Thursday.
Interested students need to register
at Ocoee High's community school of-
fice. For more information, call Carolyn
Hendrickson at 407-905-3000, Ext.

Students from Ms. Daughtridge's class at Windermere Elementary proudly show off their prizes recently pur-
chased at the Mustang Market. Students Who participate in the Accelerated Reader program are able to
spend points they earn reading at the market. Prizes range from pencils to razor scooters. Students who
receive the most points in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades also receive an award at the end of the year. -


Fifteen Calvary Christian Ensemble students, under the direction of Emily Shaw, participated in an all-day
conference sponsored by Community Christian School, located in Bradenton. They joined 6 other schools

Ms. Hillman and her Science Clubs at Dillard Street Elementary re-
cently received a Service Learning Grant to create an outdoor class-
room. Pictured are (l-r): (front row) Nicholas O'Brien, Emily Zubricky,
Rose Heckman-Kurtz and Cristin Jenkins; (2nd row) Dominic Monzon,
Matthew Brown, Hillary Castillo, Aimee Jenkins, Allison Badgley and An-
nie Gooch; and (back row) Hillman.


Science Clubs update
The Science Clubs at Dillard Street
Elementary, along with sponsor Lau-
re Hillman, have been working hard
to clean up their garden area. Hillman
received a Service Learning Grant to
help with the costs of creating an out-
door classroom for the school. They


are planning to add an area to study
plants and animals and to make the
garden wheelchair accessible.
The PTA has generously donated
money to add tables to the area. The
students and Hillman hope to raise
more money to make this an out-
standing outdoor learning area.


At Lake Whitney Elementary School, Snow White (Mrs. McGrew), Lit-
tle Red Riding Hood (Mrs. Housego) and Rapunzel (Mrs. Gross) joined
3'd-grade students in a Readers' Theater presentation of 4 fairy tales.
Pictured are (l-r): Tiffany Collins, Maddie Welch and Hailey Shawron.


Orchestra students excel
Thirteen Olympia High Titan Or-
chestra students recently participated
in the annual Florida Orchestra Asso-
ciation Solo & Ensemble Music Per-
formance Assessment. The students
played a solo or small group piece for
a judge, who then gave them a rating.
Roxanne Pitt, a sophomore cellist,
played her first-ever solo this year and
received a rating of Excellent. She
started playing cello at the end of
eighth grade and has never had pri-
vate lessons. The judge praised her
nice sound and said that she per-
formed very well for someone so in-
experienced.
Also a first for Solo & Ensemble was
the quintet of Ben Forrest, Alexa Levin,
Michelle Sobrino, Elizabeth VanHala
and Matt Hightower. Despite all being
in various stages of the flu, they re-
ceived an Excellent. Their judge
praised their knowledge of the piece
and gave them pointers on better
evoking the images the composer had
in mind.
Freshman Ernst Octavien (known
as "Violin" by his football team friends)
performed a solo. His judge said he is
doing excellent work and is sure that
with time he will be a very strong play-
er.
Senior Jose Romero is a relatively
new viola player, only having played for
two years. He received a rating of
Good on his rendition of the 'Telemann
Viola Concerto." His judge compli-
mented him on his bow work and fast
fingers and said he had a good, solid
sound.
Sophomores Vanessa Argento and
Anna Garcia played a Bach minuet
duet for violin and viola. They received
an Excellent, and their judge praised
their tone, solid rhythm and great
sense of musical style.
Senior Al Palmer is one of the stars
of the Titan Orchestra and also a char-
ter member. He played the difficult
"Preludio" from Bach's "Partita No. 3"
and received an Excellent. His judge
wrote, "You are absolutely a very gift-
ed young man very nice, profes-
sional and mature." He even wanted to
recruit Palmer to come to the univer-
sity where he teaches, but Palmer has
plans to attend Stetson University in
the fall and pursue a biology-pre-med
program.
Palmer also played a duet with
sophomore Uthara Rajasekhar. They
received a Superior rating, and their
judge wrote: "Right on with counting!
Wow. Well done. You were both pre-
pared and played well."
Sophomore Tiffany Hsu also re-
ceived a Superior for her rendition of
the "Allemande" from "Partita No. 2"
by Bach. Her judge wrote: "A great
sound! No problems! Great job in a
very hard work. Beautiful in all re-
spects. You are very talented. Keep
up the good work."

Olympia High students
head for New Orleans
at spring break for
Katrina Recovery Project

A group of 50 Olympia High stu-
dents will spend their spring break as-
sisting fellow students in New Orleans
get back to school in the aftermath of
Hurricane Katrina. The students are
volunteering with the Paint Rally for
New Orleans Public Schools program
coordinated through Tulane University.
Students will help paint and beautify
schools damaged by Katrina and the
subsequent flooding.
Stephanie Johnson-Possell, life-
management skills teacher at Olympia,
initially came up with the idea of ral-
lying the students and staff to send
school supplies to the schools in New
Orleans as news unfolded about the
destruction. As the news grew grim,
school supplies seemed secondary to
the basic human needs that were go-
ing unfulfilled. The school re-focused
on raising and donating thousands of
dollars to the Red Cross.
As an educator, Johnson-Possell
still had hopes of helping the schools
get back in session When an idea was
born while brainstorming with a teach-
ing colleague, Takumi Sato. The two
teachers decided students could give
and gain from a humanitarian aid
spring break trip. Obstacles came up,
but the PTSA partnered with the teach-
ers to help make the trip possible.
One hurdle remains. Possell and
Sato would like to alleviate the cost
to the students who participate in the
project.
"The students are volunteering to
spend their spring break helping oth-
ers. It doesn't seem right if they have
a financial burden as they are already
giving so much of themselves to go
in the trip," said Sato. "The cost of
transportation alone is significant, so
any help we can get will go a long
way."
The students depart March 10 for
their weeklong experience. They will
stay in a FEMA base camp or "tent
city" for volunteers. While their peers
are on vacation, these students will
work to help New Orleans schools re-
open their doors and get back to the
business of learning.
The group is in need of financial
and material support from the com-
munity members and businesses to
cover the expense and needs of the
trip. Anyone who can help should con-
tact Sato at satot@ocps.net or Johnson-
Possell atjohnsos 13@ocps.net to dis-
cuss sponsorship opportunities and
needs.


Students in grades one through
eight first competed in their home-
rooms, with each class winner mov-
ing on to the championship round.
Class winners included first-
graders Maddy Damon, Abby
Fitzgerald and Karlee Gordon; sec-
ond-graders Reed Peyton, Alex
Schwartz, Brayden Graves and Saad
Syed; third-graders Paxton (Irie)
Johnson, Erika Price and Sarah


Catherine Herndon; fourth-graders
Christina Ambrose, Evangilisti and
Reddy; fifth-graders Tim O'Leary;
Aishwarya Bharathidisan and Grant
Peyton.
Also, sixth-graders Rohail Her-
mani, Cameron Parker and McCul-;
lough; seventh-graders Alex Boisvert
and Bianca Trifoi; and eight-graders

Spring Lake Elementary's Spelling Bee champions are Jordan Azor, win- Seventh-grader Ashley Allison is Lakeview Middle's winner of the Na-
ner, and Dahlia Robles, runner-up. Azor will move on to the next lev- tional Spelling Bee and will represent the school in the Orange Coun-
el. Congratulations go to both students. ty bee later this month. Another 7th-grader, Jonathon Lall, took 2nd
place. Allison won the bee by correctly spelling the word 'plagiarism.'


Ocoee Elementary 5th-graders Courtney Stauffer and Dallas Hurst are
finding that fractions are fun. They are practicing converting fractions
into decimals with a game entitled Frac-Tac-Toe. This stimulating game,
similar to Tic-Tac-Toe, is from their math series 'Everyday Mathemat-
ics.' Finding decimal equivalents for fractions is a grade-level expec-
tation for 5th-graders.


Book reports go digital
Students in Ms. Robert's sixth grade
at Lakeview Middle worked with Dr.
Kenny from the University of Central
Florida and the LMS media special-
ists to create movie trailers for books.
They call them Digital Booktalks.
Instead of writing book reports,
these students designed and edited


their own movie trailers using com-
puter-editing software. Their movies
are posted on the school's Web site at
teachers.ocps.net/lakeviewmedias-
pace/mediaspacebooktalk.htm.
The students learned so much while
creating their movie trailers that
Robert's eighth-grade classes are now
making their movie trailers to post on
the Web site with the other ones.


Computer lab is
open on Saturdays
Ocoee Elementary is preparing to
take the FCAT test in a few months;
therefore, Principal Sheilla Johnson
and the technology and math com-
mittees are proud to announce the

11:30 a.m. on Saturdays from now un-
til the end of February.
Any Ocoee Elementary student in
grades K-5 can come to "Boot Camp"
in the computer lab and get the extra
help they might want to improve their
skills and "make their brain grow in
size.'

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


"God is Love!" You hear that all the time. Church
people say it, non-church people say, the Bible even
says it. But even though we hear it all the time I don't
think we truly believe it. If we truly believed it we
wouldn't talk about God's ironic sense of humor. Or
say things like "watch out for the lightning bolt" when
we catch someone in an obvious lie. Or, if you are like
me, wonder how you angered God when something
goes wrong in your life.
1 John 4:18 says "There is no fear in love. But per-
fect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with
punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in
love." Did you catch that? Fear has to do with punish-
ment. But verse 16 of the same book and chapter says
"God is love." So, how do we reconcile our thoughts
with these verses? Should we fear God? Yes, but it's a
reverential fear...a fear that that looks at His creation

and realizes His Power and stands in awe. But does
God want us to be afraid of Him... NO. God wants to
love us and does so every minute. Could God have
made a world without plants and animals that give us
such joy? Of course He could have, but He was think-
ing of our enjoyment. Could He have made a world
with out scenic landscapes or sunsets or stars? Of
course, but He wanted us to be fascinated.
So the love of God drives out fear by us realizing
that the mostpowerful entity in the universe loves us.
And He loves us not as a group or unit, but as individ-
uals. As individuals that He has taken time to individ-
ually craft and create. The power of that knowledge is
a peace that passes all understanding, and in that peace
that is provided by love, there is no room for fear.
