Ocoee hires new


chief of police


Windermere named

Sterling Tree City

By Kathy Aber

Windermere was recently recog-
nized for its 10 years of participation in
the Tree City USA Growth Awards
program. It is one of just 116 commu-
nities nationwide to be named a Ster-
ling Tree City USA.
Windermere, along with only six
other municipalities in Florida, have
earned this designation denoting their
efforts toward growth and improve-
ment in their community forestry pro-
gram.
This award is presented by The Na-
tional Arbor Day Foundation in coop-
eration with the Florida Division of
Forestry and the U.S. Department of
Agriculture Forest Service.
In addition to the town's participa-
tion in the Growth Awards program,
Windermere has been recognized as a
Tree City USA for 12 years.
The Tree City USA program was
started in 1976 and encourages com-
munities to emphasize the important
role trees play in the well-being of their
citizens.
Windermere met four standards to
become a Tree City USA it has an
established Tree Board, tree-care or-
dinance, comprehensive community
forestry program and an annual Arbor
Day observance. The town was also
recognized for presenting continuing
education programs for residents and
tree managers, creating and analyzing
tree inventory of all the trees in Win-
dermere and for establishing a disaster
plan to preserve and maintain the ex-
isting tree canopy.
The award also commends Winder-
mere for its environmental improve-
ments and higher levels of tree care.

By Mary Anne Swickerath

whole lot different.
Last week, the Ocoee City Com-
mission unanimously approved the re-
development plan for this corridor, a

as part of a newly established Com-
munity Redevelopment Agency

(CRA) that has the power to set up a
special taxing district to raise funds
for reconstruction and commercial in-
centives.
Ocoee Director of Planning Russ
Wagner discussed the details of this
plan with the elected officials before
the vote.
He said one of the purposes of the
redevelopment plan is "to eliminate
blight and deteriorated structures,"
such as the long-empty Colony Plaza
Hotel at the corner of West Colonial
Drive and Maguire Road and aban-
doned dwelling units, old fruit stands
and unsightly car lots a bit farther to
the west.
Another purpose is to reorganize
parcels on the roadway ard provide
access to them from West Colonial.


Currently, some of the parcels have
no, access to the major thoroughfare.
The plan would also address road-
way and utility improvements, new
sidewalks and crosswalks, more open
spaces and recreation, streetscape en-
hancements, new water.and sewer
lines and public parking and plazas.
Wagner explained the city will work
with developers of new projects, such
as the one planned around Lake Ben-
net, east of Bluford Avenue, to include
elements of the plan, such as the con-
struction of a promenade or board-
walk around the lake.
Public and private partnerships are
necessary to achieve the plan's vision,
he said, and a CRA, with its taxing

Ocoee officer receives Medal of Heroism
Ocoee Police Officer Jeff Dyer was one of 13 Floridians statewide to
receive the Governor's Medal of Heroism from Gov. Jeb Bush at a Cab-
inet meeting in Tallahassee last week. This was the first presentation
of this award. Officer Dyer was recognized for his courage and quick
thinking when 2 years ago he saw a distraught neighbor with a loaded
gun to his head threatening to kill himself. Officer Dyer, a member of
the city's Crisis Intervention Team, calmly talked to the man until he could
get the gun from him. The neighbor was then safely transported to a men-
tal health facility. The Medal of Heroism was created by the Legislature
in 2003 to honor those 1n the public safety sector who risk their lives in
the line of duty to save another person.


Foundation supports Rotary's SW Library project


By Kathy Aber


Orange County District 1 Com-
missioner Teresa Jacobs joined the
Dr. Phillips Rotarians for their break-
fast meeting May 10 to announce the
Dr. P. Phillips Foundation's support
of the club's renovation project at
the Southwest Library. Jacobs is the
honorary chairman of the Rotary's
fund-raising campaign to remodel
the entry and children's area at the li-
brary on Della Drive.
S"I am very grateful to the Dr. P.
Phillips Foundation for their gener-
ous donation to the Dr. Phillips Ro-
tary Club's Capital Campaign," Ja-
cobs said. "Their contribution helped
the Dr. Phillips Rotary Club meet its
goal of $60,000."
The'foundation will contribute up
to $15,000 to match donations raised
by the Rotary Club.
Dr. Phillips Rotary Club President
Rich Maladecki told The West Or-


ange Times last week that the club
had collected $12,500 and has a cou-
ple more commitments that are ex-
pected to bring the club's fund-rais-
ing total to $15,000 within the month.
The Orange County Library Sys-
tem has pledged a dollar-for-dollar
match of up to $30,000 to add to the
Rotary donations and the pledge
from the Dr. P. Phillips Foundation.
Maladecki said the Rotary's fund-
raising campaign is continuing pos-
itively and he is pleased with the sup-
port the Rotary has received from
the local community.
"I am very grateful that the Dr. P.
Phillips Foundation is a community
partner. We hope to begin recon-
struction in the summer months,"
said Maladecki.
Library patrons will see a totally
new look in the children's area that
will have an aquatic theme. Ocean
waves will flow across the ceiling
and will be incorporated into an en-


trance gate. The redesign also in-
cludes special amenities for young-
sters, including computer stations
with gray dolphins holding the mon-
itors.
In addition, the renovation features
the beautification and total renovation
of the library's interior entryway.
The Dr. Phillips Rotary Club un-
dertook this project to support and
emphasize the importance of the li-
brary as a community asset.
To contribute to the project, checks
should be made payable to Dr.
Phillips Rotary Library Fund and
mailed to Dr. Phillips Rotary, P.O.
Box 1381, Windermere, FL 34786.

Ron Reffett has 26
years of law-enforcement
experience in Broward
County.

By Mary Anne Swickerath

After receiving 58 applications and
having four face-to-face interviews
with the finalists, Ocoee City Man-
ager Rob Frank announced Friday that
he had hired Ron Reffett, 54, the po-
lice chief of Deerfield Beach, to be
Ocoee's new chief. He will join the
Ocoee Police Department June 5.
Frank was impressed with Reffett's
interview, his record of experience
and his references.
"Chief Reffett's 26 years of diverse
law-enforcement experience will only
help the Ocoee Police Department as
we grow and moved toward accredi-
tation," said Frank.
"Ron's demeanor and interperson-
alskills will be a great fit for the city,
where he can build on past successes
and expand our role in the communi-
ty. Each of the references we contacted
had glowing reviews of Ron's work
ethic and dedication to his department
- along with sincere sorrow to see
him leave South Florida."
For his part, Chief Reffett told The
West Orange Times Monday by phone
that he thought it was "fantastic" that
he has been given the Ocoee position.
"It's nice to be able to go in as chief
because that has been my career path,"
he said, and he is excited to bring his
family to a smaller community with
less-crowded schools than in South
Florida, a community that he feels will
offer a better quality of life.
'"The main reason I accepted the job
is because I am ready for a change and
for something a little more challeng-
ing," he added. "I also wanted to en-


A,.

CHIEF RON REFFETT

joy my family more."
He and his wife, Jamie, and chil-
dren James, 16, and Brittney, 13, will
be making the move to Ocoee.
The Reffetts also have a grown
daughter, Amber, 24, who is married
to a professional hockey player, Mark
Vanryn of the Florida Panthers.
"I'm a big hockey fannow," said
Chief Reffett.
A 43-year resident of F16rida, he
was drafted into the U.S. Army in
1972 and served eight years before
graduating from the Police Academy
and receiving his certification in law
enforcement.
He stayed with the Oakland Park
Police Department for 20 years be-
fore retiring from there and joining
the Broward County Sheriffs Office
and, eventually, moving to Deerfield

the jungle operation training battal-
ion in Panama.,
He came to Orlando in 1996 and

2003 to train the Afghanistan National
Army earned him a second combat
infantry badge.

Dillard's ex-employees
arrested in Ocoee
On May 15, the Ocoee Police De-
partment concluded a month long
investigation into a fraud case by for-
mer Dillard's employees by charging
Riad M. Ali, 29, with grand theft,
crimes against intellectual property
and scheme to defraud.
According to police, the fraud in-
volved Ali entering items for pur-
chase when a customer presented it.
Normally, an employee will attach a
proof of purchase label onto the price
tag. Police charge Ali did not do this
but instead attached the proof of pur-
chase label onto a piece of paper to
later scan the label for a refund as a
price credit onto a gift card account.
Once the gift card had a large bal-
ance, say police, he would sell the
gift to another person for a dis-
counted price.
Police charge that Ali convinced
others to do the fraudulent refunds
to help him avoid detection by Dil-


Chief


Beach and serving as chief of a 161-
member department.
When asked what his strengths were
as a chief, he said, "Leadership, without
a doubt, loyalty and a lot of experience
in police work and community devel-
opment."
He said he has the experience, espe-
cially in code enforcement, to look at
development from a crime-prevention
point of view.
In addition, he is confident he can
work well with the city's new plans for
constructing a larger police building
outside of the municipal complex at
Starke Lake. He wants to make sure the
plans take future growth into consider-
ation. As he explained, you don't plan
a facility for the present, you make plans
to accommodate the future needs of the
department.

Safe Sitter classes
at Health Central
Young children cannot always com-
municate their needs or protect them-
selves. Left alone, the baby sitter needs
to be able to handle any situation that
may arise with care and in a calm man-
ner.
Health Central is offering summer
Safe Sitter classes, which are medi-
cally accurate, hands-on classes that
teach both boys and girls ages 11-13
how to handle emergencies when car-
ing for children. The class runs from
9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on various days
throughout June and July.
Safe sitters will learn what to do
when a child chokes, safety for the
sitter, how to call for emergency help,
babysitting business skills, basic child-
care skills and how to entertain chil-
dren and keep them safe.
The classes will be at the hospital,
and a fee of $50 covers the program.
Classes fill up fast, so register early.
To confirm class placement, the reg-
istration form and fee must be received
in advance. Registration over the
phone will not be accepted.
For class times and information on
how to register, call the education de-
partment at Health Central at 407-296-

Your

Money
By Dennis R.
Gillard, CPA/PFS
HOW TO CUT COSTS
IN YOUR BUSINESS
Keeping costs under control is crucial in to-
day's competitive business environment. With-
out a doubt, one of the quickest ways for a busi-
ness to cut costs is through staff reduction. But
cutting jobs is not always the best cost-cutting
strategy. Drastic job cuts can lead to a vicious
cycle of reduced productivity, followed by
slower growth and decreased profitability.
Here are some alternative cost-control strategies
that companies could consider.
Look at the cost of your office or plant. If the
company owns expensive office space, con-
sider moving to a less costly location that will
not mean losing clients or business. If a move
is out of the question, consider sharing office
space with a compatible company. What you
save in shared operating costs goes directly to
the bottom line (after taxes, of course).
Consider sale-leaseback arrangements, which
enable the company to generate funds for op-
erations and transfer the burden of ownership
to the buyer from whom you rent back the of-
fice space.
Review the cost of supplies and inventory. An-
alyze the cost of materials and supplies. Are
you stocking too much material too far in ad-
vance? Can you arrange to have materials
shipped directly to customers by your suppli-
ers?
Periodically conduct a competitive review of
suppliers, and select those who can deliver good
quality and service at the lowest cost possible.
Also, you may not have to pay full price; inquire
about volume discounts.
Outsource some processes. Consider out-
sourcing certain activities that either consume
a great deal of time and resources or are prone
to errors. For example, you may be able to have
payroll processing or bookkeeping done by a
vendor at a fraction of the current cost to you.

Friends of Lake Apopka


Lake County Water Authority Nutrient Reduction Facility


The Lake County Water Authority (LCWA) has
announced plans for construction of an alum treat-
ment facility that would treat water flowing through
the Apopka Beauclair Canal to Lake Beauclair. The
project, called the Apopka-Beauclair Canal Nutri-
ent Reduction Facility (NuRF), is designed to remove
nutrients and solid particles from the water before
it leaves the canal. FOLA appreciates the efforts of
the LCWA and although we have several concerns
about the project it is important that we continue
to work together to achieve our goal of healthy lakes
in Central Florida.
The FOLA Board of Directors has expressed con-
cerns about the project for several reasons:
1. The primary concern centers on plans to use
the CC Ranch parcel on the northwest shore that
was part of the farmlands purchased by state and
federal agencies for restoration to native habitat.
This parcel is the only part of the entire north shore
acquisition that was never tilled and the only piece
that can be restored to a valuable wet prairie ecosys-
tem.
2. Since the entire restoration process (which cost
taxpayers more than $105 million), was justified
by the plan to remove pollution sources from the
lake and to restore the 15,000 acres of farmland
back to wetland systems, this industrial use of CC
Ranch cannot be justified. FOLA has made it clear
that if another parcel can be utilized there would
be no opposition to the project. though several oth-
er major concerns have been expressed.
3. There is also the potential for degrading adja-
Scent parcels with the excavated clay, which must
Sbe stored on site. Necessary trucking access by
tankers deli ering alum and constant noise from
machinery required in the process would also degrade
Habitat in surrounding areas.
4. In addition to the habitat loss at CC Ranch,


other concerns related to the process include the
possibilities there will be a diversion of emphasis,
including future funding, from'the Lake Apopka
restoration. LCWA has already requested a grant
of $500,000 from the St. Johns River Water Man-
agement District for this project for the 2005-2006
budget year. (Until headwaters are clean, down-
stream pollution will continue).
5. There is little research regarding long-term ef-
fects on benthic (bottom dwelling) organisms if
alum slurry is released into a natural lake system.
Most available research focuses on northern lake
systems. There is always a chance accidental dis-
charges can occur.
6. Some have also expressed concerns about the
cost of construction (more than $5 million) and op-
eration (more than $1 million/year). As phosphorous
levels in Lake Apopka,continue to fall, concerns
about how cost effective the project might be should
be expressed.
7. The SJRWMD has already entered into an
agreement to lease the 250-acre parcel to LCWA
for $1/year. The LCWA selected this site because
the inflow can be gravity-fed. Other parcels can be
used but not for free and intake must be pumped.
In summary, FOLA expresses opposition to con-
struction of the NuRF project on the CC Ranch par-
cel and urges the LCWA and the SJRWMD staff
to review other parcels for construction and to re-
evaluate the project costs and feasibility using cur-
rent data from Lake Apopka.
In 1991, The Friends of Lake Apopka organized,
advocating the restoration of the lake and the adja-
cent muck farms on the north shore. This broad-
based citizens group actively continues w working to-
wards this goal. FOLAhas a strong membership with
a mail-out of more than 1.000 concerned citizens
throughout the Lake Apopka basin.


Dear Commissioner Nichols,

As residents of District 4 we want to take this oppor-
tunity to thank you for your service to District 4 and the
city of Winter Garden.
We do not agree with your decision to serve us from
Tallahassee. With the growth and changes taking place
in the city we feel that we need a commissioner that lives
in our district full time to represent us on the City Com-
mission.
We believe that the mayor and commissioners will do
the right thing and appoint an able representative from Dis-
trict 4 to complete your term.
For all residents of Winter Garden, it's now time for you
to do the right thing as well and vacate your seat so that
we may move forward with the business of the city.
Thanks again for your service.

Editor:
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) was saddened to learn of the three young
women who lost their h\ es during encounters with wild
alligators during the past few days. Our hearts go out
to their loved ones.
As we try to maintain the natural character of Flori-
da, it's important to keep these tragedies inperspec-
tive. The three recent fatalities are unrelated and do not
reflect a trend. Daily encounters w ith w ildhfe are part
of life in Florida. Such encounters rarely result in
tragedy, however. Human safety is our highest priori-
ty.
In 2005, the FWC received thousands of nuisance
alligator complaints. Nuisance alligator trappers, un-
der contract with the FWC, removed more than 8,000
nuisance gators in the interest of public safety. People
may also buy alligator hardest permits. w which helps us
to achieve our population management objectives. In
2005, for example, hunters harvested more than 3,000
alligators. In February 2006, the FWC extended the al-
ligator hunt season to give participants greater flexi-
bility in scheduling their hunts. At the same time, we

changed the rule to allow individuals to be issued more
than one alligator harvest permit. These changes are
part of our population management program.
Some people have asked if alligator mating season -
May through mid-June -is a significant factor in al-
ligator bite statistics. It is not. What is significant is the
fact that warm weather causes alligators to become
more active at the same time people are spending more
time in and on the water. Since 1948, there have been
17 confirmed fatalities associated w ith alligators. (This
number does not include the three most recent fatalities,
which are still under investigation.) As terrible as these
tragedies are, they do not represent an overalfthreat to
the general public.
I want to remind Floridians to stay alert when recre-
ating in and around fresh % water, but at the same time,
I think it is important for Floridians to feel confident that
Florida \% wildlife is truly one of our state's greatest trea-
sures.

approximately 450.000 war veterans. To accommodate
the needs of these veterans and their families, it is es-
sential for the Veteran's Administration (VA) to initi-
S ate and complete the construction of a nev hospital fa-
cility in Orlando.
Over the past 10 years, outpatient visits to Florida's
veteran health centers have doubled. Since the begin-
ning of the global var on terror, more than 10.000 vet-
erans have sought medical care through the VA in our
state. The growth of our veteran community has un-
derscored the need for an additional facility and prop-
er care in Central Florida, specifically. The Orlando re-
gion claims the largest population of veterans in the
state, yet only 45 percent of veterans in the area are
within the VA's access standards for hospital care.
I recently addressed members of the Senate Veter-
ans Affairs Committee to communicate the significance
of a new hospital facility in the Orlando area. in keep-
ing with my promise to provide effective and efficient
medical care to our veterans.
Building a VA hospital in Orlando has been one of
my top priorities since before I came to the U.S. Sen-
ate and remains a priority today. As former Orange
County mayor. I saw' firsthand the extensive growth of
the Orlando area and the definitive need we have to in-
crease access to healthcare for our veterans.
The VA, as part of the Capital Asset Realignment


for Enhanced Services process, recognized the growing
needs of Central Florida and authorized the design and
construction of an Orlando VA hospital. The selected
site \ ill provide 130 beds, a nursing home and domi-
ciliary and rehabilitation center: and it will provide
2,000 new jobs in the Orlando community. The issue at
hand now is where to build.
One of the most important aspects of where the Or-
lando VA hospital is sited is accessibility. Several lo-
caions throughout Orlando have been identified by the
VA as potential sites for the new facility, and site sur-
veys began this May. Accessibility means Central Flori-
da veterans will no longer have to travel a great dis-
tance in order to access quality VA healthcare.
Also important in the planning for this new project is
local input. The VA has organized a (locallyled) lead-
ership team to ensure that the needs of veterans in Cen-
tral Florida are addressed in the design, placement and
construction of the hospital.
In Florida, the VA has established a tradition of ex-
cellence of care. As thelate U.S. President Teddy Roo-
sevelt once said. "A man who is good enough to shed
his blood for his country is good enough to be given a
square deal afterwards."
SIi'Central Floridai veterans have earned and deserve
better access to a VA inpatient facility.
By providing a new Orlando hospital, we will be able
to meet the ever-increasing needs of our veteran pop-
ulation. I encourage the VA to swiftly select a location
for the hospital and begin construction in order to serve
the veterans who have so valiantly served our country
in the name of security and freedom.

Boston shares WOHS news with Rotary


John Boston, the athletic director
for West Orange High School, talked
about changes at the school with the
Winter Garden Rotary Club recently.
He said that after the split with
Ocoee High School, WO went from
4,200 students to 2,400 but is going
extremely strong and forward. Last
year, the school brought up its aca-
demic grade from a D to a B, and he
said he expects it to remain a B school
or better this year. Discipline prob-
lems are down, unity is up, and the
Warrior spirit is alive, he said.
Boston encouraged everyone to vol-
unteer to be a mentor to the students.
WO's current project is to install


artificial turf on the field, which sup-
ports the soccer, lacrosse and football
teams.
The drama team has excelled in
competitions, and the choir recently
competed in Italy and came home with
a second-place award and a first place
for the director.
Boston was best known for his long
shot in basketball and has been in ed-
ucation for 33 years, 20 of those with
West Orange High and 12 as A.D.
He can be reached at
bostonj2@ocps.net or 407-905-2506.

ies, the church added ministries and worship services to serve the

How criminals are caught
Ken Lininger, the crime scene investigator with the Winter Garden Po-
lice Department, visited the children in the Maxey Center Reading Club
with his crime scene van. The back of the van was packed with the
equipment he uses to investigate crime scenes. Club members learned
about flares, identification numbers for photographing items, gloves,
tire track impressions and more. Lininger then performed a finger-
printing demonstration by having the children place their hands on the
side of the van. He dusted it with black powder and lifted each print
onto cards for the participants to take home.

,:iK. g Ocoee Fire Department welcomes visitors from Belgium


Eight firefighters from Edegem,
Belgium, spent much of last week as
guests of the Ocoee Fire Department,
thanks to the hospitality of Ocoee Fire
Chief Richard Firstner and his staff.
Last year, Danny Wils of the
Edegem Fire Department started a cor-
respondence with Chief Firstner, ask-
ing if Edegem firefighters, who were
planning a visit to Florida, could vis-
it Ocoee Fire Station No. 1 to check out
its equipment and procedures.
After some back and forth mes-
sages, Chief Firstner invited the Bel-
gians to stay with OFD during their


first week in Florida.
They lived with the Station No. 1
firefighters and took tours arranged
by OFD to the Reedy Creek Fire De-
partment, the Greater Orlando Avia-
tion Authority Fire Department, the
Central Florida Fire Academy, the
State Fire College, the Emergency
One Fire Apparatus factory and the
Wheeled Coach Ambulance factory.
Besides Wils, the Edegem fire-
fighters visiting Ocoee were David
Swiggers, Eddy Weyn, Emiel
Vertessen, Erwin Roelands, Marc
Bosmans, Steve Janssens and Wern-


1 -.--..


er Vercammen.
All of them were special guests at
last week's Ocoee City Commission
meeting, where they were given a fire
helmet for their chief, a key to the city
for their mayor and small U.S. fire en-
gines. In turn, they presented Mayor
Scott Vandergrift with some Belgian
glassware from their mayor.
Chief Firstner said the visit was a
great experience and he was happy to
make such good new friends. In fact,
the visitors have invited the Ocoee
firefighters to be their guests in
Edegem in the near future.

cheon.

..a y-.:*..w Spring tea held at Oakland Presbyterian church


More than 260 women and girls
gathered for Oakland Presbyterian
Church's annual spring tea. This
year's theme, "Tea in the Garden,"
emerged as each table hostess per-
sonally decorated her table to cele-
brate the beauty of the season and the
sharing of an afternoon of friendship.
The event, which Melanie


Williamson, who chaired the event,
said is "about more than tea," was a
team effort, with the help of the men
and youth of the church setting up
and serving.
Homemade sandwiches and sweets
accompanied the traditional tea ser-
vice, and entertainment included a
musical program by pianist Ture Lar-


son, humor and inspirational read-
ings by mistress of ceremonies Pat
Hines and a performance by Kidz-
Dance under the direction of Mary
Stott.
Proceeds from the event will go to
fund several ministries supported by
the women of Oakland Presbyterian
Church.

Childhood classmates reunite
Seven former residents of Oakland attended their Lakeview High School 50-year reunion banquet April 22

McCord of Williamsburg, Va., and Richard Vick Crowley, M.D., of Kings Mountain, N.C. grew up in Oak-
land and attended Tildenville Elementary and Lakeview High schools, graduating in 1956. Their weekend
included a tour of downtown Winter Garden and the Heritage Museum, a Saturday evening banquet and a
Sunday morning breakfast at Perkin's. The group added that they are 'delighted' the Tildenville Elementary
name will not be changed.

Dr. Phillips Little League completes 20th season


A strong grassroots, volunteer
effort built the DPLL fields that were
dedicated March 8, 1986.

By Kathy Aber


When Dr. Phillips Little Leaguers took the field to be-
gin the spring season back in February, many would not
have guessed the league was beginning its 20th year.
They couldn't have imagined the humble beginnings
of the Wallace Road Little League complex, located next
to the Dr. Phillips YMCA.
Some of the league's founders, including Lil Simon,
a 28-year resident, local Realtor and Dr. Phillips Rotar-
ian, were on hand to celebrate Feb. 24.
Simon prepared and presented a detailed history of the
league.
In the early 1980s, children played baseball either on
the Wallace
Road prop-
erty with J'Wm *
only a back '
stop fence
and one set
ofbleachers PHI
provided by
the local RATING
Women's
Club or at
the Rotary
Field in
Winder-
mere ,that
was behind
Town Hall.
In 1984,
there was
one Little
League or-
ganization
for the Lil Simon (right), president of the Dr. Ph
combined built, poses with the 20th-anniversary b<
Winder- Dolan.
mere-Dr.
Phillips area and it consisted of 19 teams and 300 play-
ers. All of the games were scheduled and played between
these fields and a few more at Windermere Elementary
School.
Simon said that "the Dr. Phillips players had no place
to practice and the older boys could never get to finish
their games before it got dark."
She was league president during the 1984-85 season
and became determined to get some practice and play
time for the Dr. Phillips players.
Simon and the board agreed to approach the Dr. Phillips
Foundation about using its Wallace Road property to
construct three lighted fields.
Then, Simon discussed the proposed project with Don
Strube, who had spearheaded construction of the light-
ed field in Windermere.
Strube told her, "Lil, don't do it" and then proceeded
to give her a blow-by-blow account of the difficulty he
encountered in building just one field with lights. Simon


said her husband, an engineer, also discouraged her ef-
forts.
Undaunted, she forged ahead and met with Jim Hin-
son of the Dr. Phillips Foundation to discuss the plan. He
agreed to look over the project.
At the time, Simon was working in the architectural de-
partment at Walt Disney World, and she enlisted the help
of Abe Quibin, chief architect, and Gary Williams, a se-
nior designer. Both were already involved in Little League
and agreed to complete the plans but they wanted a few
weeks to do the drawings. Simon convinced them to
complete the task overnight.
The next day she presented the drawings for the fields
and the concession stand to Hinson.
"He was shocked that I could have this done overnight,"
Simon explained during the opening ceremonies this
year.
The Dr. Phillips Foundation agreed to give the Dr.
Phillips Little League the use of the property and put in
the sprinkler system and the well, and the Dr. Phillips
YMCA would
provide the
Si awr .-j. -- parking lot.
Then, Hin-
son asked Si-
S- mon where
IPS LITTLE LEAGUE she would ob-
tain the
20 YEARS OF B EBSEALl $40,000 need-
ed for the
986-2006 lights and
fences.
Simon re-
sponded to
Hinson with a
S request for a
four-year loan
from Dr.
Phillips Foun-
dation, which
was granted
and paid back
on time.
Ilips Little League when the fields were
inner and current DPLL President Lesa Television
new crews
and an en-
tourage of
VIPs joined the league for a ground-breaking on Jan. 5,
1985. Simon remembers the cold day with temperatures
in the 20s when Rick Coble and his construction crew start-
ed clearing the land.
Simon said Coble expected to clear the wooded site
in two days but he ended up working on the fields for
weeks and provided his services free of charge even
though his machinery broke down repeatedly.
Simon said volunteer Bob Taylor was in charge of the
concession stand and restroom construction and re-
sponsible for raising the funds to build it. She credited
Taylor, Ron Simmons, Ted Lindsay and Rita Davies with
coming up with the funds.
A team including Charles Fischofer, Bob Kindle, Lar-
ry Larsen, Jack Hart, Rich Forkner, Russ Moore and Susi
Milner took responsibility for the electrical work to light
i the fields.
"Those poor people even worked at night with home-


made lights and extension cords and looked like a bunch
of moles digging holes," said Simon.
All of the lights for the fields were delivered to Si-
mon's Sand Lake Hills home.
"My whole garage was stacked from floor to ceiling for
several months," she said.
Two volunteers, Slim Steerman and his wife, took the
light fixtures out of the boxes and put them all together.
A caravan of 100 trucks delivered the clay to construct
the fields, and Simon said it took months to get the fields
ready for play. The coaches built the dugouts, and she list-
ed 19 volunteers who kept the fields manicured in the
beginning Jim Powers, Bruce Wall, Olin Crabtree.
Steve Miller, Bruce Fox, Paul Chabot, Dick Hall, Russ
and Tari Moore, Dot Sanders, Dick Anderson, Sam Bar-
ber, Alan Cramer, Mike Janeczek, Dennis Roberson, Jim
Cox, Fred Miller, Larry Barnes and Gary Williams.
More volunteers built eight sets of bleachers in one
day, a project headed by Mike Inderhees. Simon said
she still has the
original plans
for the bleach- ;
ers, which are .
still in use..
Disney do- .
nated the poles
for the field
lights, and a
contact at
Florida Power
arranged the in-
stallation.
Golf tourna-
ments and
'50s-themed
dances were or-
ganized to raise
additional fund- .
ing, and on
March 8, 1986,
the fields were .
dedicated.
More than 325
youngsters
were there to
hear the words Lil Simon, 2nd from left, remembers

Currently, Dr. Phillips Foundation and Bob God
the Dr. Phillips
Little League has 38 teams and 456 players and maintains
three playing fields and one practice field. The fall balls
season has a smaller number of players, about 370, ac-
cording to League President Lesa Dolan.
Dolan heads a 20-member board which operates the
league. The DPLL rents the Wallace Road property from
the Dr. Phillips Foundation with an agreement to pay for
the landscaping and maintenance of the property.
The league's operating budget is approximately
$150,000 for the spring season and $130,000 for fall
ball, according to Dolan.
DPLL revenues come from uniform fees, concession-
stand sales and business sponsorships. Dolan said the
league is grateful for the continued support of many lo-
cal businesses and especially recognized Pepsi, describing


th
,v
a
da


the company as an "awesome community sponsor."
Last year, the league had three teams win District 14
titles 9-year-old National League All-Stars, managed
by Stanton West; the 11-year-old American League All-
Stars, managed by Steve Goodwin; and the National
League team managed by Mike Marchell.
In addition, the Minor softball team managed by Sta-
cy Davis and the Major softball team managed by Di-
ane Sullivan won their 2005 tournaments.
"Our teams are very strong this year, and we're hop-
ing for a repeat," said Dolan.
The DPLL just received an Orange County Field of
Dreams grant that will enable it to light the softball fields
at Dr. Phillips High School.
Dolan said Softball Vice President Diane Sullivan "did
all the work" to obtain the grant. The league has five
softball teams that play on the fields at DPHS, in Win-
dermere and at Shadow Bay Park.
Another Field of Dreams grant for $78,126 from the
county and pre-
sented in March
2002 by Com-
missioner Tere-
sa Jacobs en-
SDabled the league
to create an all-
clay practice
field and
dugouts.
Future plans
include replac-
ing the conces-
sion stand and
lighting the
practice field.

Eatonville area.
The oldest player on a talented
team, Purcell sets the standard for her
teammates, according to Coach Bev-
erly Buckley.
"Tasi leads by example, both on
and off the court," Buckley said.
"She's a hard-working player in prac-
tice and in games, and always gives
100 percent. She's a great role mod-
el because of her excellent work eth-
ic. Her hard work rubs off on the rest
of the younger players."
As the team's No. 1 seed, Purcell


TASI PURCELL

Safe Sitter classes at Health Central


RE-
Congratulations go to Windermere Elementary's oration winner, Megan Birkes, and runner-up Nick Armillei.
They competed in the 2006 Modern Woodmen of America Oration Contest. They were the top 2 winners
in the Level I school competition from WES. Both were invited to compete in Level II against 3 other ele-
mentary schools. The competition was held at Lakeview Middle.


Young children cannot always
communicate their needs or protect
themselves. Left alone, the baby sit-
ter needs to be able to handle any
situation that may arise with care
and in a calm manner.
Health Central is offering summer
Safe Sitter classes, which are med-
ically accurate, hands-on classes that
teach both boys and girls ages 11-
13 how to handle emergencies when
caring for children. The class runs
from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on various
days throughout June and July.
Safe sitters will learn what to do
when a child chokes, safety for the


sitter, how to call for emergency
help, babysitting business skills, ba-
sic childcare skills and how to en-
tertain children and keep them safe.
The classes will be at the hospi-
tal, and a fee of $50 covers the pro-
gram. Classes fill up fast, so regis-
ter early. To confirm class place-
ment, the registration form and fee
must be received in advance. Reg-
istration over the phone will not be
accepted.
For class times and information
on how to register, call the educa-
tion department at Health Central at
407-296-1440.

will give thanks to Him in song." Psalm 28: 6-7
My dad, my husband and I were packing up our apart-
ment last week in preparation for a massive move when
we ran into a slight problem. Actually, it was a problem
that we had known about all along but we all were trying
to not think about. We own a huge dresser which is sol-
id wood, very heavy and very awkward to move. I knew
that there was no way I was going to be of any help get-
ting that dresser down the very steep, narrow stairs of our
old apartment building. I also knew that despite their
protests, my husband and father should not attempt to
move it either. I sat on the back of the truck and asked
God for help. Within a few moments, as we continued to
ponder our predicament, three men wearing moving com-

pany t-shirts walked by. They clearly had had a little too
much to drink, and began to tell us that if we had want-
ed an easier time in moving our apartment we should
have hired "experts". Slightly blown away by the tim-
ing of their arrival, my husband promptly asked them
how much it would cost for them to move one piece of
furniture. Twenty minutes and forty dollars later that
beast of a piece was safely in the back of the truck.
God showed me more in those twenty minutes than I
had learned in days. He used three drunken movers to re-
mind me that He loves me more then I can ever imagine,
and He relishes showing me that love by showing up in
the "little" things in my life. I can always trust the ulti-
mate Expert, for He will never fail me.

years of teaching experience. Lemon and McCollum have taught 2nd
grade their entire career. Barker decided 5th grade was where she
wanted to be. They all have wonderful plans when their retirement be-

Students at Ocoee Elementary recently attended a Caribbean beach party in the media center. One class
from each grade level got to attend the party as a reward for outstanding reading achievement this last 9
weeks of school. The party included music, popcorn and juice, limbo dancing, musical chairs and Twister
games. The event was sponsored by local businessman Joe Durek, owner of Durek Enterprises. Conipe-
tition was fierce, and children worked as a team to accumulate points by reading books and taking reading
comprehension tests on the computer. Students have made tremendous learning gains during this last 9
weeks. Pictured is Mrs. Copenhaver's kindergarten class with a trophy presented by Durek.
