Betty Wade pauses near the recently uncovered grave of her grandfather, early Oakland settler James W.
Walker, who died at age 37 in the 1918 flu epidemic. Wade and her small cemetery committee have worked
for nearly a year to clear out the grounds of the Oakland African-American Historic Cemetery, which was
overgrown and untouched for more than half a century. Below, graves have been discovered with tributes
to the African culture, including shell 'towers' and pottery.

Oakland's cemetery
committee stepped on a
black settler's grave
marker while clearing
brush in the overgrown
burial ground.

By Amy Quesinberry

Clearing a patch of land in Oakland
has proved to be a lesson in archae-
ology and in African history.
The Oakland Tildenville Cemetery
Committee has worked at a.grueling
but steady pace to clean up the Oak-
land African-American Historic
Cemetery, overgrown and forgotten
until Florida Turnpike Authority of-
ficials discovered the plot of land in
2004 while on-site to discuss road-
widening plans.
Volunteers have found shells and
pipes and researched the artifacts' pur-
poses with the help of an archaeologist
courtesy of the developers, Castle &
Cooke.
'There are so many burial traditions
that were brought over from Africa,"
said Mona Phipps, an Oakland town
commissioner and one of four resi-
dents serving on the cemetery com-
mittee. "They believed that water be-
comes part of death, so we've found
shells on graves....They believed that
you could communicate with the dead
and would do this by placing pipes -
and bamboo in the ground. We've also
found pipes.
"We've learned what to look for,"
Phipps said.
A turpentine clay pot has also been
uncovered, and the committee thinks
the family probably used it as a grave
marker and a place to put flowers.
But before the committee could
even get close to the gravesites, they
had extensive brush-clearing to do.
One source dates the cemetery's es-
tablishment back to 1890. The last
black residents were buried there
around 1946, but the committee does-
n't know if burials ceased at that site
because it was full or if there was.an-
other reason.
' For the next six decades, there was
little activity there, so the trees, grass
and weeds kept growing, eventually
covering up all evidence, of the ceme-
tery's existence.


Betty Wade, who grew up in Oak-
land, is leading the committee in the
restoration effort. She has a personal
interest in the old cemetery her
grandfather's grave was found re-
cently.
Phipps was working in the area
about a month ago when she stepped
on "something that was harder than
the mulch," she said, "so I went back
and started digging."
She uncovered the fallen grave
marker belonging to James Walker,
whose family was one of the first to set-
tle in the town and who is also the fa-
ther of Oakland's oldest resident, 92-
year-old Cordie Walker.
"We found her daddy," Phipps said
of Walker. "That was cool. That, to
me, was one of the highlights of the
whole thing."
Walker's brother is buried nearby,
but attempts to locate his gravesite
have been unsuccessful.
"There are so many years of debris
--natural vegetation that has set-
tled in; everything is pretty buried,"
said Phipps.
In the clearing stage, Wade said,
"we uncovered quite a few new graves
up in the trees 17 or 18.
"Some of them you could tell by a
plant that someone had planted there.
And, of course, sbme still had head-
stones. Some are legible, and some
are not.
Wade said she and Phipps tagged
all the trees they wanted to keep in
the cemetery, and then a crew began
removing the rest. The process has
been slow because the land is full of
soft sand and because the committee
wants the trees out without damaging
the burial sites and headstones.
Wade told The West Orange Times
last week: "We found out that they
used to have to go and register [the
deceased] with the town to cease the
taxes. That document could give us
the best lead on who is buried out
there."
The document is "somewhere with
the town of Oakland," she said.
"These were the days when people
actually did cold-slab buries where
they put these bodies on slabs and
women cleaned them and they buried
them. They might not have put them
in boxes," Wade said. "Some were
embalmed, and some were not."

Garden Theatre earns top score for cultural facilities grant


With an additional
grant from Darden
Restaurants, the theater
restoration effort
received news Monday
of $600,000 in grants.

By Michael Laval

Monday brought great news for
the Winter Garden Heritage Foun-
dation.
The Orange County Arts.and Cul-
tural Affairs Office announced that
the Garden Theatre restoration pro-
ject had topped its list of local cul-
tural facilities worthy of receiving


grants. If approved by the Orange
County Board of County Commis-
sioners at its March 2 meeting, the
Garden Theatre will receive the full
$500,000 grant it had requested from
the county.
The Garden Theatre beat out the
Orlando Repertory Theatre, Carr
Performing Arts Centre, the Orlan-
do Science Center and others on the
county Arts and Cultural Affairs Of-
fice's list of institutions requesting
funding.
. The Heritage Foundation also re-
ceived word Monday that the Dar-
den Restaurants Foundation ap-
proved a $100,000 grant for the Gar-
den Theatre. The Darden grant will
be distributed over a three-year pe-


Windermere tackles development issues


Council turns down
moratorium on
annexation, rezoning
and property conveyances
and considers hiring
project manager and
revamping building codes.

By Kathy Aber,

Renovations in W\indermere did not
come to a halt ith the completion of
the Main Street project in December.
The town has outlined a major
storm\ after project foi North Oakdale
Street and is mo\ ing forw ard \n iih a
bikepath master plan. All over town,
older homes are being remodeled or
leveled to make w\a\ for larger and
more modern ones.
The town staff is being inundated
with a w ide range of residential pro-
jects. The town has slightly movie than
800 residential lots, including 40 va-
cant lots. and Zoning Clerk Sherry


Music said this week there are 90
Building permits currently in progress
for either new construction or re-
modeling work.
And last Tuesday; developer Kevin
Azzouz submitted a conceptual plan for
his property in do% ntown Winder-
mere. His company, Kosta Holdings,
owns the cunent site of Windermere
Union Church. the block behind the
business district on Oakdale Street
from Fifth to Sixth Avenuesthe Suzi
Karl Realty property and adjacent
properties where the denust office and
the old NlcNlurtrey building are lo-.
cated.
SMusic said Azzouz's site plan
shows a footprint of the proposed new
buildings and approximate' square
footage but no building designs. The
plan includes two buildings on the
Church property and three on the par-
cel at the corner of Sixth and Main
w ith parking along the street frontage
' on Oakdale.
The application submission is the
beginning of a long process. First, the
town manager, Development Review


Board and town planner will look over
the plan. Within 10 days of the appli-
cation they will arrange a conference
with the applicant to discuss their com-
ments on the plan.
At last week's Town Council meet-
ing, Town Council. Member
Genevieve Potthast introduced a non-
binding resolution asking for a vol-
untary delay for annexation, rezon-
ings and planned development appli-
cations until November (when a new
charter could be in force) for com-
mercial, office and residential devel-
opment in town.
Last year, Windermere adopted a
comprehensive PUD ordinance in an-
ticipation of future downtown devel-
opment. .
"Community leaders asked me to
wait" while they came up with a very
well-defined standard and PUD ordi-
nance, Azzouz told the council last
week.
"I have waited patiently," he said. "I
have an application before the town
of Windermere, and I expect that to
be treated with respect."


Potthast said she introduced the mo-
tion because the town's charter is cur-
rently being rewritten and the revi-
sion could affect how the town will
handle annexations, rezonings and
conveyances in the future.
Long-range Planning Chairman
John Fitzgibbon asked the council
what the resolution had to do with re-
zonings.
"I understand the charter affecting
annexation and conveyance," he said.
The town's Charter Review Com-
mission recently extended its term un-
til June, and one of its members, Vera
Carter, is currently drafting the re-
vised charter.
Carter told the council last week
that she was unsure when the draft
would be completed or available for
council review. After the council re-
views the charter, it must be adopted
by referendum.
"I just spent two years of my life
designing this [PUD] ordinance," said
Fitzgibbon, who was clearly upset

riod.
"The Heritage Foundation appre-
ciates Orange County's and Dard-
en's generosity in investing in the
citizens of West Orange County by
awarding these grants," said Win-
ter Garden Heritage Foundation
President Ward Britt. "The staff and
volunteers at the Heritage Founda-
tion will work hard to ensure the
,success of this great project."
Construction crews broke ground
at the Garden Theatre about-two
months ago. Once open, it will fea-

formances and educational programs

Some gravesites were identified only

Oakland
(Continued from front page)
This cemetery has become the cen-
ter of a conflict between preserving
the town's history and respecting the
dead and keeping up with traffic and
growth.
This Oakland African-American
Historic Cemetery and the newer
Oakland-Tildenville Cemetery are
located north of Highway 50 within
close proximity of the state's widen-
ing plans along that stretch. Many of
the newly discovered graves lie out-
side the cemetery's.boundaries, and
the town is trying to extend that prop-
erty line so the residents buried ac-
tually lie within the cemetery.
According to Phipps, the commit-
tee met with Florida Department of
Transportation officials and DOT
agreed to donate back a five-foot
strip of right-of-way "that would put
the graves back inside the bound-
ary."
The-cemetery is about seven acres
in size, but that could change once
the burial boundaries are established.
The town's next hurdle is with the
Florida Turnpike Authority, which
plans to widen its road into the south-
west corer of the older cemetery.
'Phipps said the committee has not
confirmed that there are graves in
that area but that Christopher "Chip"

Volunteers clearing the overgrown cemetery discovered metal
pipes placed deep into the ground and rising about 3 feet above.
In one African burial tradition, people added these pipes to the
gravesites so they could talk to their deceased relatives.

'Meet your Candidate' forum
set for Tuesday at Tanner Hall

with the council's consideration of a
moratorium on planned development.
"[Azzouz] was waiting two years while
we designed an overlay plan. This [res-
olution] is crazy."
Azzouz told the council his plans
are "100 percent compliant with the
PUD" and its architectural standards.
Town Council Member Matt Sulli-'
van commented that the PUD requires
an expert to review the plans.
"We need some architectural con-
sultant on board to deal with this," Sul-
livan said. He reminded the council
'that former Council Member Fred Pry-
or, who died in December, had rec-
ommended setting up an architectural
review board.
After a lengthy discussion, the mora-
torium resolution was defeated by a
vote of 3-2, with Potthast and Council
Member Ron Martin casting the dis-
senting votes.
On a related matter, the Town Coun-
cil discussed creating a new position of
town project manager. This engineer-
ing-based employee would oversee
various projects in town and review
them for compliance with zoning codes
and town ordinances.
Council Member Stephen Withers
introduced this item, noting that the
town has grants and capital projects
totaling $2,672,644 without counting
ongoing general maintenance of the
town's buildings and roads.
"We are about to face major down-
town urban redevelopment, and we,
as a town, are not equipped in the town
offices to deal with the reviews re-
quired," Withers explained.
The council agreed the position is
needed and next month will consider
the cost of adding this person, along
with various funding options, such as
job-sharing with another municipality.
The council also voted unanimous-
ly approving the North Oakdale
stormwater mitigation plan that ad-
dresses drainage problems from First
Avenue north to the canal. The coun-

cil instructed Professional Engineer-.
ing Consultants to proceed with per-
mitting from the South Florida Water
Management District. The plan in-
cludes installation of pipes and cul-
verts to drain water standing in swales
after heavy rainfalls. A FEMA grant
could cover some of the cost, if it is
approved.
In other business, the council:
resolved an error made in issuing
a building permit for property at 836
Main St. In calculating the percentage
of impervious surface permitted, town
staff incorrectly included in its com-,
putation adjacent railroad right-of-way
that is owned by the property owner.
Prior to the meeting, the property own-
er agreed to reduce the paved surface.
However, neighbors complained that
the house under construction exceeds
the town code governing height limit.
Withers, an architect, said the code is
very hard to interpret and does not
properly define building height.
Town Attorney Cliff Shepard said he
would draft some changes to the town
ordinances. "Ypu need to get in front
of this as quickly as possible," said
Shepard.
The code currently measures the
height of the house from the front door
and does not consider the height at the
rear of the home. The council agreed
That a complete review of the town's
codes and ordinances should be initi-
ated as soon as the charter review is
complete.
unanimously approved imple-
menting the sidewalk master plan and

sections as presented by Fitzgibbon
with one addition, a crossing at Ninth

asked attorney Shepard to research
and recommend what kind of policy
the town needs to deal with possible
conflicts of interest for employees,
contractors and contracted employees.
Shepard explained that there should
be a clause in any contract the town

Opinion


In our opinion

Editorials


Winter Garden candidates should be leery of political forum


Some candidates in the Winter Garden com-
mission and mayoral races are not falling for the
so-called "Meet Your Candidate" forum set for
Tuesday at the Tanner Hall. The forum has been
organized by Commissioner Carol Nichols, who
has shown her allegiance to two of the candidates.
In our opinion, this Tuesday's "Meet Your Can-
didate" is neither legitimate nor neutral. Although
Commissioner Nichols represents Winter Garden
as an elected official, we believe it is not appro-
priate for an individual to orchestrate such a forum
or debate; it should only be organized and sanc-
tioned by the city or an independent group. The city


is not sponsoring or participating in this event.
One candidate told us he would attend and said
he thought the questions would be coming from
Doug Guetzloe; and others won't show because of
that connection.
We fully support city-sponsored or independent
forums, such as the ones Windermere or Ocoee pro-
vide, but the danger of this "Meet Your Candi-
date" is that some Winter Garden citizens might
assume that since they're at Tanner Hall and some
elected officials are present, they must be attend-
ing a legitimate forum, when in fact, that will not
be the case.


Editor:

On behalf of the Bloom 'N' Grow Garden Society, I
would like to thank the city of Winter Garden for its support
of our Spring Fever in the Garden festival that is held each
year in the historic downtown area. Our sixth festival will
be April 8, and it is because of the partnership between the
members of our garden club and the employees of the city
of Winter Garden that this event has become so successful.
I would like to acknowledge Jay Conn, recreation de-
partment director, for his leadership and ability to produce
such positive results within his department. The rec de-


apartment plans many wonderful programs and events for
the residents of Winter Garden.
Joy Robertson and her crew with the Public Works De-
partment do amazing things with the plantings on our streets,
in the planters and in the parks. The flowers are changed
regularly and are constantly in bloom.
I have lived in Winter Garden all my life and am proud
of the accomplishments that have been made to make this
the great city it is.

Reader: We don't need 'dirty politics and mudslinging'


The hard work and dedication of the volun-
teers who have been steering the restoration of
the Garden Theatre in downtown Winter Gar-
den is continuing to pay off for the citizens of
West Orange County. Ranked No. 1 above the
likes of the Orlando Science Center and Carr Per-
forming Arts Centre, the Garden Theatre re-
ceived word this week of $500,000 from Or-


ange County Arts and Cultural Affairs and an
additional $100,000 from Darden Restaurants.
This money will go a long way toward bring-
ing new life to the once-vibrant theater for a
new generation of residents.
We applaud the Winter Garden Heritage
Foundation for earning these well-deserved
grants.


Editor:

During the week of Feb. 13, some of the residents
of Winter Garden received a letter from Mr. Doug
Guetzloe. Mr. Guetzloe has, in fact, hijacked two mem-
bers of the commission. He is attempting to control
the city of Winter Garden by controlling the City Com-
mission.
Let's not allow Mr. Guetzloe to continue to do what
he has done in and to Winter Garden. He will dam-
age anyone's life for his own political goals. Look at


what he attempted to do to Mr. Richard Mask with his
lies and innuendoes. Mr. Guetzloe also has in his agen-
da to fire our newly hired city manager, Michael Bol-
hoefer. He already has the support of two commis-
sioners. This cannot be allowed. Winter Garden has no
place for people of his character or persona. Dirty pol-
itics and mudslinging may be part of the national elec-
toral process, but does it have to be part of ours?

30 years ago
Windermere Realty Inc. became the largest real estate of-
fice in West Orange County as a result of its recent merg-
er with Robert H. Elrod Inc. Three members of the firm
serve on the executive committee: Bob Elrod, vice presi-
dent; Carl Patterson, chairman of the Grievance Commit-
tee; and Judy Hart, president of the Women's Council.
Three years ago, Marji Lamb was the founder of the Girls
Athletic Association (GAA) and was the president for the
first two years. Ward Britt, who has two daughters playing
in the league, is now president. In case anyone is wonder-
ing what it is the girls play it's softball. At the end of last
year's season, the girls played in a tournament in Fairvil-
la. They hope that this year it will be played in Winter Gar-
den and to that end they, with the help of their dads, have
constructed two dugouts.

15 years ago
A first-run movie, My Girl, was being shot in Ocoee,
mostly at the Ocoee Christian Church on Bluford Avenue.
Star watchers who were out in the wee hours of the morn-
ing got to see Dan Ackroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis coming
to and from work. Because of a new Ocoee film ordinance,
the movie-makers paid $2,500 to the city to shoot there.
"We're becoming Hollywood East," said City Manager
Ellis Shapiro.


Editor,


You have heard it here before. Last spring, the De-
partment of Health (DOH) proposed a new rule for sep-
tic systems in the Wekiva Study Area. The new rule
would require more expensive septic systems for exist-
ing homeowners and new homes alike. The DOH slipped
the rules by the Technical Review and Advisory Panel
(TRAP).
The DOH presented the rules to the public at a series
of meetings last summer in Longwood, Apopka and
Tavares. At the Longwood meeting, the senator for Semi-
nole County and chair of the Wekiva River Basin Com-
mission endorsed the rule that would increased the cost
of septic systems by $10,000 to $15,000, over the protests
of the public.
Last fall, the TRAP committee courageously with-
drew its prior rule approval. Since that action, the TRAP
meetings have been filled with discussion on the Weki-
va septic system issue. The Feb. 15 TRAP meeting was
not different. The meeting began at 9 a.m., and until 3 p.m.
the only topic discussed was the Wekiva septic rule.
The DOH.based its rule for the Wekiva area on a study
done in another part of the state. From the announce-
ment of the rule, the first question, the most important ques-
tion, has been, "Has there been a study of the impact of
septic systems in the Wekiva area?" The answer is "No,
there has not been a study in the Wekiva area."
Rep. Bruce Antone, Rep. Alan Hays, Rep. David
Mealor, Rep. David Simmons and I made a written re-
quest for such a study to the DOH Secretary Rony Fran-
cois. The secretary declined. Recently, the Lake Coun-
ty Commission in writing requested a study in the Weki-
va area. Again, the Secretary declined.
The TRAP committee heard at its meeting a report by
a recognized leader in septic system analysis, Damann


L. Anderson, P.E., of the engineering firm Hazen and
Sawyer. It is necessary to compliment Mr. Anderson for
his presentation.
Mr. Anderson's verbal report was one of the best pre-
sentations by a scientist I have heard. Mr. Anderson ex-
plained a very technical topic clearly and concisely. Mr.
Anderson avoided the use of overly technical terms;
acronyms, and jargon.
The crux of the report is that the DOH proposed rule
has been attempted to be imposed without any scientif-
ic data in the affected area. Mr. Anderson postulates that
onsite wastewater treatment systems (septic systems)
are not one of the leading contributors of nitrogen to the
Wekiva River or the aquifer, if at all. Mr. Anderson rec-
ommends a study to identify and refine source quantities
of nitrogen.
The beat goes on. A study should be performed to de-
termine the source of nitrogen in the Wekiva Study Area.
Florida House members have said it. The Lake County
Commission has said it. A highly respected expert has said
it. Most importantly, the public is asking for it.
The TRAP committee decided to withhold approval of'
the DOH proposed rule. The TRAP committee will rec-
ommend to the legislature funding of any required sep-
tic system replacement program. The TRAP committee
will request the legislature to enact and fund an appro-
priate maintenance and inspection program for septic
systems in the Wekiva Study Area.
I respect the proposals ofithe TRAP. The proposals
will not be easy to pass or easy to implement. Howev-
er, TRAP's proposals will be more effective than those
of the DOH with a fraction of the cost to homeowners.

USE A PROFESSIONAL
INSPECTOR
Choosing a property inspector should
be a priority when you are looking for a
home. A home inspection is one cost you
should clearly anticipate. Seasoned buy-
ers in particular often feel competent
enough to conduct their own inspection
and save a few dollars. However, "Do-it-
yourself" inspections are ill advised.
Professional inspectors have had the op-
portunity to analyze many different types
of property. They are familiar with homes
in varying states of age, repair, renovation
and maintenance and have knowledge of
current building codes and compliance reg-
ulations. In addition, they will be sensitive
to undetected evidence that may indicate a
serious condition. When you are ready to
engage a professional inspector, look for a
member of ASHI, the American Society
of Home Inspectors. General contractors,
architects and structural engineers are all
good choices. Inspectors are truly house
detectives, recognizing and interpreting
obscure, apparently unrelated information
and then providing an informed evalua-
tion. They must possess the ability to judge
the severity and potential hazards of any
condition and suggest a practical course of
remedy. Avoid the "penny-wise, pound
foolish" pitfall. A thorough inspection may
cost you hundreds now but can save you
thousands later.
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.

Museum honors Winter Garden resident


Mary. Katherine Watford of Winter Garden has been
selected to participate in a "Wisdom of the Ages" exhib-
it at the Mary Brogan Museum of Arts and Sciences in
Tallahassee. She is the only senior from Central Florida to
be chosen for the exhibit, which will feature about 25
Floridians between the ages of 80 and 115.
"You were selected because you are a vibrant, con-
tributing member of the community in which you live.
You are passionate about your life and your purpose,"
wrote Chucha Barber, executive director of the Mary Bro-
gan Museum.
Watford's photograph will be displayed, and museum
visitors will hear her voice on headphones and via i-Pod
casting. Additional exhibit elements will include an "age
progression machine" and a story booth for visitors to tell
about the impact seniors have had on their lives. The sto-
ry booth concept is currently in use by National Public
Radio.
The State of Florida Department of Elder Affairs part-
lered with the museum to identify and select the subjects
of the exhibit. Watford was nominated by Victoria Laney
of Ocoee.
Laney said: "I was amazed to discover she is 89. I nom-
inated her for volunteer work at a family history library,
where she teaches others to use the computer. She drives
and does her own yard work. When Scott Baxley from
the Brogan came to interview her, she displayed a quick
wit and keen intelligence.
S"I was asked to nominate a senior because I am a citi-
zen volunteer on Orange County Triad, which partners
the sheriff and police, the Commission on Aging and the
state attorney. I wanted to recognize someone with a con-
nection to law enforcement. Her father, G.E. Brazell, was
a chief of police in Winter Garden and a detective in Or-
lando. Her brother, L.W. Brazell, retired from the High-
way Patrol. Her son-in-law, Tom Connor, is still a reserve
officer, and her grandson, Mark Connor, is on Sheriff
[Kevin] Beary's SWAT team. Best of all, she worked for
the Orlando Police Department herself as an operator in
the days before women could be officers."
After the exhibit debuts in Tallahassee, the Brogan will
work with the Smithsonian Institution to add to the ex-
hibit for national travel. The Smithsonian has already of-
fered the museum an opportunity to host the exhibit in
Washington, D.C. The Metlife Foundation, 'the Claude
Pepper Foundation and the State of Florida Department of
Elder Affairs have provided initial support for the project.
The exhibit will be open to visitors beginning Feb. 27.
Watford plans to attend a grand' openingin March with
her children W.G. "Billy" Hall and Lolaine Connor,
both of Winter Garden; Carl Hall of Astatula; Chip Hall
of Astor; and Mary Kay Hall of Lake City.


Nomination of Katherine Watford

At the age of 89, Katherine Watford is still using her
wisdom to help others. Each week she volunteers at a fam-
ily history library in Orlando. Often, patrons come to the
library with nothing but a lot of curiosity and the name of
a grandparent. She helps them learn how to use a com-
puter...rejoices with them when the screen fills with the
names of possible ancestors.. .helps them understand more
about the location where their ancestors lived....When it
comes to how they lived, she doesn't need any books. She
knows from personal experience what life was like in
Florida during the past 89 years.
She tells patrons about the one-room schoolhouse she
attended in Longwood and how the family moved to Win-

of the Ages' museum exhibit in Tallahassee.
ter Garden, where they lived over the jail because her fa-
ther was the chief of police. He was shot when she was 14
and lived, but her mother died of blood poisoning a few
days later.... She remembers 10-cent movies, traveling
by horse and buggy and ice boxes instead of refrigera-
tors....She drives herself to the library, which is more than
a 40-mile round trip from her home.....
When she was 82, she was asked by her church to serve
as the president of the Relief Society in Deltona. The or-
ganization had 250 members....Their mission was to re-
lieve the suffering of others. They rocked babies to sleep
so new mothers could rest, prayed with grieving widows
and delivered cartons, of f6od to those in need of com-
passion.
The Relief Society held weekly meetings, where they
taught each other lessons on-culture, parenting skills or
faith. They held monthly meetings, where they complet-
ed sewing projects or arranged flowers to take to those
who were ill or shut-in....
She demonstrated her leadership skills by presiding over
a board that helped her plan the meetings, the service, the
activities and the educational programs. They kept the or-
ganization vital by recruiting young women at age 18....
When she was well over 60 and her six children had
homes of their own, she became a foster parent to hun-
dreds of children. Some lived with her for more than a
decade. These still come visit her, and she acts as a grand-
parent to their children.

C.E.R.T; class at Ocoee Oaks United Methodist Church
Twenty-six residents recently graduated from Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) training
held at the Ocoee Oaks United Methodist Church. Instructors Ron Plummer and Jim Murphy (shown above)

This graduating class was the first of its kind in West Orange County and was inspired by the church's first-
response mission trip to Bay St. Louis, Miss., in the immediate wake of Hurricane Katrina. The 3-Saturday

Crayons and paper can help pro-
tect children from danger when they
use them to illustrate basic safety
rules for Ocoee's Stranger Safety
Poster Contest. The contest is open
to kindergarten through fifth grade,
and prizes will be awarded for each
grade level.
"The goal is to teach children to
understand and be aware of 'stranger
danger,' said Martha Lopez An-
derson, chairman of Ocoee's Child
Protection Recommendation Com-
mittee, which is hosting the contest.
"They can learn how to stay safe
with people they don't know and peo-
ple they kind of know."
The posters must be original draw-
ings and may not have photographs,


stickers or other objects attached.
Each poster will be judged on cre-
ativity, colorfulness, compliance with
the rules and how well a clear safety
message is conveyed. As part of the
contest, children will be taught four
basic safety rules.
"This poster contest will help our
children to -be safer," said Lisa
Arnold, Ocoee Elementary art teach-
er. "Students remember information
much better when they express it
through their art. They discuss their
drawings with other students and the
teacher, and it is an opportunity to re-
inforce important safety rules. Also,
we are able to see how well they un-
derstand what is taught."
A first-, second- and third-place
winner will be selected from each
grade level, and the school with the

No longer a competitor in the PGA
Tour event he founded 27 years ago,
Arnold Palmer nevertheless is eager to
host another edition of the Bay Hill In-
vitational presented by MasterCard.
The 76-year-old legend says that al-
though he misses the competition, he has
found his tournament an enjoyable en-
terprise simply by serving as its host.
"I always like the challenge of playing.
When you recognize that it's not fun to
play when you aren't doing well, then
you move on," said Palmer. "I had to
come to that decision. But in other ways
I enjoy the tournament as much as ever,
and in some ways more so. I enjoy
watching the golf, which I couldn't do
when I was on the golf course. There are
a lot of great players out there and it's
fun to see how the course challenges ev-
eryone. I enjoy seeing the galleries and
a lot of friends."
The 28th Bay Hill Invitational is
scheduled March 13-19 at Palmer's Bay
Hill Club and Lodge. One of the premier
stops on the PGA Tour, the tournament
traditionally draws one of the strongest


fields among golf tournaments from
around the world.
The defending champion is Kenny
Perry, who became just the second man
over age 40 to win the tournament,join-
ing Ben Crenshaw. Perry established a
three-stroke lead after 54 holes and held
on for a two-shot victory over Vijay
Singh and Graeme McDowell.
Winner of 62 PGA Tour events, in-
cluding seven major championships (four
Masters, two British Open titles and one
U.S. Open), Palmer continues to cut back
his active playing schedule to focus on
golf course design and other pursuits.
"I don't have many plans for golf this
year," said Palmer. "There are people I
work for, but I don't know that I will
play in the events they sponsor (on the
Champions Tour). I am considering it, but
that's all. I'll be around. I'll always be
around to promote the game; that won't
ever change. But at this point, I have no
plans to play very much at all."
Over the years Palmer has turned the
Bay Hill championship course into one
of the most demanding on the PGA Tour


with its thick rough and humps, mounds
and bunkers protecting large, firm greens.
In years past, he has instituted changes
here and there, some subtle and others
quite dramatic. The par-72 course again
stretches 7,267 yards.
"We expect the golf course to be ab-
solutely tip top," said Palmer. "There are
really no changes from last year. Last
year proved to be a good test of golf. The
rough will be much the same as last year
- not long but very intense, very full. It
will put more of a premium on tee shots,
which I like to see. The scores reflected
the difficulty of the course last year, and
the player who won it, Kenny Perry, he
played very well to be able to win. It was
an exciting finish right down to the end.
That's what you want."

tational or for more information, log onto

hillinvitational.com or call the Bay Hill
ticket office at 407-876-7774 or toll free

Children and Women.

made earlier in the month to approve
a change in zoning for developers that
may generate thousands of multi-fam-

County Commissioner Teresa Ja-
cobs had come upon information on the
land development that would allow
the developer to build up to 20,000
new units. She worked with the Or-

with third-graders.
Following an extensive training pe-
riod, the program officially kicked off
on Jan. 30 when more than a dozen
OHS students visited TES to meet
their reading buddies. Students and
mentors were paired based on com-
mon interests and personal style.
When asked what the third-graders
thought of the first meeting, most de-
scribed it as "awesome or "totally
cool."
One of the mentors.said, "It is just
a wonderful feeling knowing that you
are making a difference and helping
young students make achievements in
education."

'Count Me In!' reconnects
county residents with
public school system
West Orange residents James Gusti-
no, Terri Steck and Martha Lopez-An-
derson were among a panel of nearly
50 Orange County people who recently
participated on a panel to discuss ideas
on how to reconnect citizens and pub-
lic schools and enhance the quality of
life in the county.
The panelists came together as part
'of a long-term citizens' engagement
initiative called "Count Me In!," which
is managed by the Foundation for Or-
ange County Public Schools Inc.
The group crafted what is being
called a Community Agreement a
document that lays out citizens' hopes
and dreams for the community and
public schools, the challenges faced
and why and ideas for overcoming the
challenges and making progress.
The initiative was formally launched
two years ago in an effort to re-estab-
lish public involvement in education-
al achievement and community deci-
sions.
During 2005, nearly 1,000 people
throughout the county engaged in
,small-group conversations to talk about
their hopes, what they value, what they
struggle with and what makes a strong
community and strong school system.
The citizens' panel, representing the,
geographic and demographic diversi-
ty of the county, was then convened ti
review and refine the information gath
ered from the conversations. After
number of intense work sessions. tL
panel crafted the Community Agre-
ment that will serve as a lens to \ en
that the decisions made for the con
munities and schools are aligned ii
the visions of citizens.
Moving forward, the "Count N
In!" steering committee will contmn
to work to develop priorities and tal
action on the community a reemel
Plans are also underway to appear b
fore the School Board to ask that it ei
dorse public involvement with di mi
schools and adopt the agreement.
For more information on "Couqt M.
In!" and how to get involved, call 407
317-3261.

mentary students are learning about bike safety during physical edu-
cation. The importance of wearing a bicycle helmet is shown when a
Jell-O brain is dropped while in a helmet and then in a glass jar. Stu-
dents had no problem deciding which will be.the healthier brain. Ask the
students what is the proper way to wear a helmet, how to signal that
they are going to stop or turn or where they are supposed to ride bicy-
cles, and they should have the right answer.

Have you ever thought what your funeral will be
like? Many times when a friend or loved one is taken
tragically, or' out of due time, we take a more introspec-
tive look at our own lives and the legacy we leave be-
hind. I have thought of my own wake and funeral and
what I would hope it would be like. I hope there would
be many who would mourn my passing. :I desire to
leave a legacy of being loving and caring; passing
these traits on to my children, grandchildren; and oth-
ers I love.
'You know, friends, our life here on Earth, compared
to eternity, isn't very long. In the book of James, the
author compares it this way: "for your life is just a va-
por..." I think of it like steam coming off a boiling pot
of water. You don't see it for very long. Even though
our life is short, the decisions we make while here de-
termine our eternal destiny. Someday we will each
have to stand before the Father and answer al ques-
tion... did we accept or reject His gift of eternal life?

He gives us all the free will to accept or reject that of-
fer by exercising our faith in Jesus' atoning work on
the cross.
Romans 10:9-10 say it simply: "If you confess with
your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your
heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be
saved. For it is with the heart you believe and are justi-
fied and with your mouth confession for salvation is
made." Being a Christian isn't difficult; Jesus actually
said you have to have the trusting mentality of a child.
God's call to you and me today is to trust Him with
everything and believe He will share His life and love
with us, so we may share it with.others.
Leave a legacy of sharing God's love with all those
you walk with through this world and you will experi-
ence a full, rich life and know you are doing precisely
what He calls us all to do.
From the believers at First Baptist Winter Garden
