A new look will greet
students at Bay Meadows,
Windy Ridge and Windermere
Aug. 7. Tildenville will return
to a new campus on its old site
in October.

By Kathy Aber

The start of a new school year is always
filled with nervous tension, and youthful ex-
citement as students anticipate meeting new
teachers and tackling harder lessons. But this
year, many West Orange County students
will face an extra opening-day challenge and
thrill as they navigate a whole new school
building or campus for the first time.
Bay Meadows Elementary School, vacant
for the 2005-06 school year, is totally reno-
vated and ready for approximately 500 stu-
dents.
A $21.2-million redesign of Windy Ridge
K-8 School is 90 percent complete, and a
second phase currently under way will be
finished in December. It is built for 1,200
students.
At the midway point in the two-year ren-
ovation of Windermere Elementary School,
two buildings will open next week with two
more ready by month's end. The new facil-
ity will accommodate 830 children.
These three facilities, along with
Tildenville Elementary, which is scheduled
to reopen in October, are on a list of 11 pub-
lic schools in Orange County where students
will experience some major improvements
this year.
The overall cost of this year's improve-
ments is $139.6 million, and these changes
are part of a multi-million-dollar, multi-year
program to upgrade existing facilities in Or-
ange County Public Schools, the country's
121-largest school district.
"Our comprehensive program is the
blueprint we're using to breathe new life into
existing schools," said OCPS Superinten-
dent Ron Blocker. "We are not just building
new schools; we are also rebuilding and ren-
ovating many of our older facilities to provide
students with safe and healthy places to
learn."

At Bay.Meadows,i
Dr. Diane Gullett, principal of Bay Mead-
ows, told The West Orange Times this week,
"We're ready for Monday. It's great to be
back."
Gullett has been involved in the school's
$16.5-million renovation from the begin-
ning.


Bay Meadows Elementary School will reopen in its former location on Apopka-
Vineland Road on Monday. The 1 st day of school will be a homecoming for students,
faculty and staff who spent the past year at relief school Sand Lake Elementary. This
week, school registrar Vivian Prior and Principal Diane Gullett (l-r, behind the
counter) welcome Margaret Peters and her children (l-r), Shamar and Jaden, to
the new campus.


At the end of 2004-05, Gullett and her staff
relocated to a relief school, which is now
named Sand Lake Elementary School, while
Bay Meadows was redesigned:
Now she and her staff will be on hand to
welcome back approximately half of the for-
mer student body. The remainder of the stu-
dents will stay at Sand Lake.
"That was exciting to be able to see the
whole process. It's been very fulfilling."
She worked on redesigning existing space
and adapting the new building to accommo-
date special features, including a teaching
area within the media center, volunteer re-
source room and an indoor area for exhibits,
training and shows. The student dining area
has been expanded, and the stage has been re-
modeled to provide a better performance area
for students.
Gullett said the canopied breezeways that
connect the core buildings provide lots of
fresh air and light but have been retrofitted
with gutters so they stay dry during rain-
storms. The breezeway floors have a special
concrete coating to create a textured, non-
painted and more durable surface.
"The new campus is bright and crisp," said

the principal, "and geared to the learning en-
vironment."
Reopening the school is truly like a home-
coming, said Gullett, because 100 percent of
the faculty and support staff have been at
Bay Meadow previously.
"I refer to this as a family," said the prin-
cipal. "It's just very exciting to have our fam-
ily come back home."

who headed the Bay Meadows project, said
the new facility is designed to provide 96,000

West Orange High building field of dreams

In recent weeks, the grass on Raymond Screws Field at West Orange High was removed to make
way for synthetic turf, which workers will begin to install Friday. Gathered on the field last Thursday

An artificial turf
field should be in place
for the first Warrior
home football game.

By Michael Laval

If you build a state-of-the-art ath-
letic field, they will come.
The rebirth of West Orange High,
which will culminate in 2008 with
a new facility opening next to the
existing campus, begins this week
with the installation of artificial turf
at Raymond Screws Field.
By last week, the old natural grass
field plus eight inches of topsoil had
been scrapped off. Work will begin
Friday to lay down 80,780 square
feet of ProGrass Infinity XP syn-
thetic turf costing $510,000.
Although Orange County Public
Schools approved the project in June,
it will not cost the school district a
dime.
The West Orange Foundation, a
non-profit organization established
by founding board members Coach
Tim Smith, Dr. David Braland, Bet-
ty Goodwin, Don Bostick and Julie
Butler, is purchasing the field and
will pay for it with funds raised from
the community.
For several months, Smith, Prin-
cipal Dr. Dan Buckman and Athlet-
ic Director John Boston have been re-
searching synthetic turf and work-
ing with OCPS and ProGrass to


make the project a reality.
With installation expected to take
20 days, the new field should be
ready just in time for West Orange's
home football opener Aug. 25 vs.
University.
The Warrior football, soccer,
lacrosse and flag football teams will
play home games on the only artifi-
cial ttirf field in the Metro Confer-
ence, which includes Orange and
Seminole and parts of Lake and
Osceola counties. The closest field of
its kind can be found in Melbourne.
"This is really going to put West
Orange and the city of Winter Gar-
den on the map," Smith said.
Following the past football sea-
son, Smith said he became serious
about bringing artificial turf to
WOHS when he learned that OCPS
was considering spending $100,000
to repair the school's natural grass
field.
Since a similar renovation had tak-
en place less than three years earli-
er, Smith and Buckman approached
the school board with the idea that an
artificial turf field would be much
more cost efficient and beneficial to
high school athletes.
West Orange's natural grass field,
Smith said,'had become difficult and
expensive to maintain.
"Our field was in such bad shape,
it was dangerous," he said.
Due to the wear and tear caused
by the football, soccer and lacrosse
teams plus the marching band, West


Orange was forced to play last
spring's annual Orange and Blue
football game at Walker Field in
Winter Garden. To return the favor,
Smith said the Winter Garden Wild-
cats Pop Warner teams will be free
to use the new WOHS field.
While natural grass fields must be
regularly watered, mowed and paint-
ed and occasionally patched with
fresh sod, West Orange's new turf
will require virtually no mainte-
nance.
All stripes, markings and field art
will be permanently painted onto the
turf and never wear off from use. A
grooming machine included in the
cost of the new field will be used to
fluff up the artificial blades of grass
once every two months.
Perhaps the greatest difference in
maintaining a synthetic field, Smith
said, will be the amount of water
saved.
"From a conservation standpoint,
I don't even want to know how much
water we dumped on that field," he
said.
In fact, it took 3.4 million gallons
of water a year to irrigate the WOHS
field, based on an estimate provided
to the West Orange Foundation by
Troy's Plumbing of Winter Garden.
A major obstacle in gaining the
School Board's approval for the pro-
ject, Smith said, was dispelling the
outdated notion that artificial turf

of the recently announced partner-
ship between Valencia, UCF and
three area community colleges that
guarantees access into UCF's upper.
division.
Valencia will seek $1.65 million
in planning money for a 99,702-
square-foot building that would be
located at the college's West Cam-
pus on South Kirkman Road. UCF's
initial request for the jointly funded
building willbe $1.5 million.
Collectively, they will seek a total
of $37.5 million over several years
for the construction and operation of
the new facility that %would offer full
baccalaureate and graduate degree
programs along i nlh student sen ices
Currently. UCF offers four under-
graduate degrees on Valencia's \est
'Campus: applied science, business,
liberal studies and psychology. How-
ever, further growth is constrained
by lack of available classroom space.
It is space that will be desperately


needed given a report released byVa-
lencia's Center for Community Col-
lege Policy Studies last year that pio-
jected 43 percent growth in eitroll-
ment at the state's community col-
leges and universities by 2015. "
The report cites continued popu-
lation growth, successful K-12 edu-
cation reform and the growing de-
mand for a college-educated work-
force as the driving forces behind'the
increase..
The innovative partnership be-
tween UCF and Valencia, Seminole,
Lake Sumter and Brevard communi-
ty colleges and the resulting guaran-
tee of admission for transfer students,
' is seen as a way to increase access to
baccalaureate degrees by building on
existing relationships.
SCurrently, Valencia students,rep-
resent 25 percent.of all in-state com-
munity college transfers to UCF,
making up a large proportion of the
school's upperclassmen.

SSchool


square feet of permanent classroom
sspace for 830 students all portable
classrooms have been eliminated.
The unique, custom design by
Starmer Rinaldi of Winter Springs
features a large, curved canopy over
the main entrance to create a focal
point. The feature is repeated in the
bus loop and student drop-off area.
"Our school is unique," said Gul-
lett.
SFor improved student safety, plan-
ners created an enclosed campus with
a new main entrance, lobby and re-
ception area, where everyone will
have to enter the campus.
"All other doors will be locked,"
said Kraemer.
"It's a county goal that everybody
'who enters the campus comes into
one entrance area."
S.Gullett also emphasized the im-
portance of the lobby as a welcome
center.
"A personal touch in being greet-
ed is really important," she said. Stu-
dent artwork is being reframed to
Decorate the walls.
'- There are three classroom wings
that protrude from the four core
buildings, which house the adminis-
trative offices, student lunchroom,
art and music rooms and media cen-
ter.
SEach classroom wing has a con-
ference room, demonstration class-
room for staff development and an
'additional large-group instructional
area (a breakout space for multiple
classes and grade levels to get to-
getber).
'Gullett said the hallways in the
classroom wings are color coded to
S make it easier for students to find
S,their way around. Each wing will
house two grade levels, kindergarten
and first, second and third, and fourth
and fifth, but could be reorganized
to accommodate learning communi-
S.ties of students of all grade levels.
S The building infrastructure in-
cludes cable and wiring for technol-
ogy improvements, such as comput-
ers, audio enhancements and micro-
phones for teachers and overhead
S projection in each classroom.
S The parent drop-off area is on the
north side of the school, and the bus
-loop is on the east side.
Kraemer said the traffic plan now
includes an additional right-turn lane
Sfor exiting onto Apopka-Vineland
'Rdad.
"'It should significantly improve
the exiting capacity of the campus,"
said Kraemer.
The school's existing butterfly gar-
den, named the Koala Garden after
, theschool's mascot, has been re-
taiied. Gullett said it will be ex-
:panded toward Apopka-Vineland

Tom Widener, construction man-
ager for general contractor Wharton
Smith, said Monday that only the fi-
nal punch list and a few landscaping
additions and some sod installation
remain to be finished.
He said there were some chal-
lenges working around the existing
facility but overall the project has
"gone well."
The staff will host community
tours of the new school this Thursday,
Aug. 3, from noon until 2 p.m.

At Windy Ridge
Students at Windy Ridge School
will return to a completely new, free-
standing, two-story building with a
brick and stucco facade on Monday.
The 137,000-square-foot structure
consists of 57 classrooms, band and
chorus rooms and an expanded cafe-
teria/multi-purpose room with a
stage. The school is now undergo-
ing renovation of the four existing
core buildings cafeteria, media
center, administrative offices and
computer lab which are spread
over 28 acres.
The Orlando firm BRPH has de-
signed a new track, playgrounds, bas-
ketball court and paved fitness trail.
The project also includes additional
parking and a new bus loop. It is now
75 percent complete and expected to
be finished in November.

At Windermere
The $17 million redesign at Win-
dermere Elementary will double the
school's size to 95,000 square feet.
The first phase of the construction
includes four new buildings on the
west side of the campus. These struc-
tures include new administrative of-
fices, media center and classrooms.
The office and lobby area and one
classroom building will be ready next
week. The other two buildings will be
finished at the end of the month,
when 12 classrooms will relocate
from portables.
Next week, parents and students
will also see a substantial extension
of the parent drop-off lane.
The renovation of the existing
north wing is under way and will be
finished in December. Teachers from
the existing west wing will relocate
to this area during the winter holi-
days. Then, renovation work will
start on the existing west % ihfg The
entire project will be finisfied next
August.

At Tildenville
During the 2005-06 school year,
Tildenville Elementary was torn
down and students and teachers were
relocated to the West Orange High
School Ninth-Grade Center. For the
beginning of the 2006-07 school
year, TES students will return to
classes at the Ninth-Grade Center.
The remodeled facility at 1221 Brick
Road in Winter Garden will be ready
for students following the student
holidays/teacher workdays sched-
uled for Oct. 12-13.
Vertis Lane, the new principal at
TES, said planners decided several
weeks ago that moving the students
in October would provide the easiest
transition.

fiscal year 2005-06.
New construction projects, addi-
tions, improvements and annexations,
Bollhoefer concluded, accounted for
nearly half of the increase, while the
remainder was due to rising property
values.
If the current millage rate is re-
tained, the city's ad valorem tax rev-
enues for fiscal year 2006-07 are es-
timated at $8,176,875. Bollhoefer ex-
pects the increase in revenues to be
more than offset by rising expendi-
tures, such as the creation of several
new job positions.
State laws require the city to ad-
vertise that retaining the current mil-
lage rate would represent a 22.69 per-
cent tax increase. The rolled-back rate
of 3.508 per $1,000 would produce
$1,512,266 less revenue for the city
than the current rate of 4.304.
The rate approved last Thursday
will be sent to the county property ap-
praiser and cannot be increased after
Aug. 4 unless each property owner is
notified by mail. After Aug. 4, the pro-
posed rate can only change by being
lowered at the final public hearing.
In other business, the elected offi-
cials:
approved the direction of the city
Parks and Recreation Department's
master plan for future park expansion.
The City Commission reserved the
right to make adjustments as the pro-
cess moves forward.
Parks and Recreation Director Jay
Conn gave presentations last Thurs-
day and at the July 13 commission
meeting in which he outlined the $40
million plan. The City Commission
agreed it will continue working at fu-
ture meetings to find ways to fund as
much of the plan as the city can af-
ford.
Passed two ordinances that re-
zoned and amended the city's future
land-use map for .31 acres of land lo-
cated at 160 S. Main St. The proper-
ty was changed from R-2 to C-1 and
from Low Density Residential to
Commercial.
rezoned 4.3 acres of land located
east of Dillard Street and north of State
Road 50 from C-2 to City PCD.
approved the final plat for Car-
riage Pointe, a 189-unit single-fami-
ly home development located off
Avalon Road.
granted approval for the Stoney-
brook West Tract 18 site plan, which
includes a 4,115-square-foot bank and
outparcel buildings of 12,000 and
5,500 square feet.
approved the Stoneybrook West
Tract 19 site plan for a 45,600-square-
foot Publix grocery store plus 23,050
square feet of retail shops to be locat-
ed on the southeast corer of Stoney-
brook West Parkway and Avalon

SOME TIPS FOR THE
TWENTY-SOMETHING
GENERATION
Young people generally feel pretty good about
life, but once in a while, they may wonder if
they're making the right financial moves. Here
are some simple (yet effective) financial strate-
gies for people in their early twenties.
* Pay yourself first. Every time you get paid, put
something aside in a savings or investment ac-
count. As a general rule, save 10% of your in-
come. Even smaller amounts add up over time.
* Watch your plastic. Credit cards are an ex-
pensive form of debt, and it's easy to lose con-
trol of them. Try to pay your entire credit balance
every month, even if it's a stretch. If you've
been carrying a balance, buy nothing more on
credit until the balance is zero.
* Keep a clean credit record. If you plan to own
a home, buy a car, or start a business, you re go-
ing to need squeaky-clean credit. Keep all of
your financial obligations current, and never
make a financial commitment that you can't
keep. If you fall behind on any obligation, talk
to the creditor immediately to make alternative
arrangements.
* Make sure you have top-notch medical cov-
erage. You may not see a doctor even once this
year. But if you do need medical care, it could
be for something serious and expensive. Anything
less than a good major medical policy could ruin
you financially.
* Watch your expenses. At this point in your ca-
reer, you may not receive large or frequent pay
raises. But you can achieve the same effect by
cutting expenses. Shop before you buy. Very
similar and sometimes identical products -
are sold at widely varying prices. Wise shop-
ping can be the equivalent of having a good-
paying second job.
For assistance with financial strategies suitable
for your particular age and situation, give us a

4A The West Orange Times Thursday, August 3, 2006


Opinion


By Elizabeth Pierdominici

College students often suffer a school-related illness
at least one time in their life. For instance, one might
be diagnosed with acute or chronic "senioritis." Others
might experience complications due to "binge studying."
The prognosis for my ailment is approximately one
year until I will be ruling the world. Some might con-
sider this to be a distorted sense of self-confidence, but
I call it the "inflation of a college student's ego."'
As a senior in college, the only cure for my condition
is a heavy dose of the "real world." But before I de-
veloped such a condition, I was first a high school se-
nior, on the verge of going to college.
For those intrepid scholars who are about to experi-
ence this special time, I salute.you and hope you learn
a thing or two from my insight as a college student. For
those who have already been there and done that, take
this time to relive the glory.
College has never been the same since Animal House
portrayed the larger-than-life antics of John Belushi's
memorable character, Bluto Blutarsky. Since then, col-
lege has become a staple in pop culture as a rite of pas-
sage, what with all the glamorous drama, raging hor-
mones and life-altering decisions one might face.
By some sublime force of nature, college students
transform into nocturnal creatures, partying or study-
ing through the night and showing up to class in paja-
mas. When you're in college, passions are fleeting, rep-
utation is everything, and roommates and professors
can be your best friends or worst enemies.
Somehow it was decided that college would be the
"best time" of one's life. If this is as good as it gets --
stress-inducing exams, ever-changing relationships and
soul searching in vain I shudder to think what the real
world has in store for me.
College isn't exactly the road less traveled, but each
path is unique to the individual. I've certainly encoun-
tered twists and turns throughout my journey.
When I was a junior in high school about five
years ago my mind began wrap-
ping itself around college. I was
seduced by the visions of an inde-
pendent and sophisticated me. I
waited for life to finally begin so I .
could carpe diem until I was carpe
diem-ed out.
But for the time being, college
was practically an entire galaxy .
away.
Overall, high school was so not
a stroll through "Beverly Hills,
90210." It was tough, but like so
many things, the rigor forced me
to mature as a person and as a stu-
dent.
I was enrolled in the Interna-
tional Baccalapreate magnet pro-
gram at Winter Park High. Being an
Ocoee girl, that meant I rode the
bus two hours to and from school
every day.
It was like boot camp. I'd rise
before the sun, spend the day ex-
ercising my brain and taking or- ELIZABETH PIER
ders from my teachers. Huddling
under the street lamp with my mom
every day at 5 a.m., I was groggy from the late night of
homework and studying.
I am convinced that my teen years were a haze because
I was asleep for most of it, but such is the peril of ado-
lescence.
One of my fonder memories was preparing for the
PSAT. Students studied long and hard just so they could
be measured by what seemed to be an arbitrary standard
of academic excellence.
The consensus was if you didn't score high on the
SAT, you wouldn't end up in a "good" school, and if
you didn't get into a "good" school, your life would be
over and you might as well major in burger-wrapping
at McDonald's.
Well, clearly, I was destined for something cool,
some kind of wonderful success story Audrey Hepburn
would portray in a happy-go-lucky romantic comedy.
So, I had set out on a mission to meet my fate.
Somewhere between studying for final exams and
preparing for senior year, I visited the carnivalesque
college booths on campus. Practically every school -
from Harvard to the United States Air Force Academy
and University of Florida was there. It would have
been easier for me to start my own college rather than
having to pick from the hundreds that already exit.
As my friends eagerly discussed their own destina-
tions for greatness, I started to catch the college fever
that plagued my classmates.
Some of them were indifferent about their choice;
they or should I say their parents had already picked
the college of choice. Some laid all their eggs in one bas-
ket and applied to the one and only school of their
dreams. Others applied to dozens of schools, figuring
that by the law of probability, the odds would be in
their favor.
Then there was me.
In a moment of self-declared brilliance, I developed
my own method and it worked. To be honest, I was
apprehensive about choosing my future. It was like
choosing a life sentence. Would I be doomed to some
boring desk job and barely make ends meet? Or would
I walk off into the horizon in pursuit of my dreams?
Some\n here down the line I might haz e made a pros
and coris list, and I probably asked for the ad\ ice of
those who went before me. But when I narrowed down
my list, I found I had an unsettlingly eclectic list of
dream occupations: marine biologist, fashion designer,
best-selling author or rock stai.
As a child. I loved The Linkri Mermaid and the ocean,
but I was prone to sunburn. and I didn't see myself res-
cuing beached w hales for the rest of my life.
I had designed some of rmy own clothes, and I had some
sketches of what I thought would be the next trend, but
I wanted stability that wasn't guaranteed in the fashion
industry.
Writing a best-selling novel and joining the ranks of
Fitzgerald, Irving and Sedaris would be pretty sweet, but
I could always do that on the side.
Rock star is still in the cards..
In all of my soul-searching, I realized that I liked to
communicate. I don't mean simply speaking or writ-
ing. Rather, I mean global communication, where pub-


lic opinion is influenced by every printed word and
broadcast statement.


I remember the prominent role the media played dur-
ing 9/11. News coverage was rampant. For the first
time, and I had my own questions, and I wanted to find
the answers.
While our country was in a state of emergency, I re-
alized communication between nations is just as im-
portant as communication between individuals. I want-
ed to be a part of the communication process. I want-
ed to be a journalist.
Having a tangible purpose is like having a Zen mo-
ment. You're calm, collected and one with destiny.
I Googled various journalism programs to see what
my options were. One must keep in mind that brochures
and Web sites always make an institution seem nice
and perfect. But searching for the right college is a lot
like searching for the perfect pair of shoes. Those Jim-
my Choos might be irresistible, but if they don't fit,
they're not it.
There was a bittersweet sensation about growing up
and growing apart from friends. But moving forward re-
quires both eyes in front.
As I put the finishing touches on my electronic ap-
plications, I kissed the monitor for good luck and nev-
er looked back.
November of 2002 was the fateful month that changed
my life. I received a large, heavy envelope from the
school of my choice, Hofstra University in New York.
It wasn't the basketball team that won me over. Rather,
it was the accreditation of the School of Communica-
tion, the close proximity to Manhattan, and the im-
pressive faculty track records that caught my eye.
In a state of utter shock, I somehow reasoned that
this mystery package could not be a rejection letter. It
would be incredibly cruel for a school to send a rejec-
tion letter with a consolation prize.
I was relieved to find the School of Communication.
I was smitten. Living near the Big Apple would be the
ultimate perk. I could finally have breakfast at Tiffany's.
The day of reckoning, also known as graduation, fi-
nally arrived. It was surreal. Wearing my favorite Clash
T-shirt under my gown, I practi-
cally glided across the stage at the
UCF Arena. I looked into the pit
of sparkling camera flashes and
cheering parents. They where
cheering for me.
For me, the initial transition from
high school to college was not as
uncomfortable as I thought it would
be. It wasn't until the summer af-
.-"r ter my first year that I realized I
had kept myself really busy to
avoid home-sickness. I applied for
and received my first part-time job,
joined some clubs and met some
great friends who I know will invite
me to their weddings.
Three glorious years of college
bliss have come and gone, and I
still have yet to experience a toga
party. I guess time flies when
you're cramming your brain with
everything from how a galaxy is
formed to early American litera-
IDOMINICI ture. I did.manage to learn a great
deal about myself, too.
I figure that for the price of tu-
ition, college ought to be the ultimate learning experi-
ence. Through all the growing pains and awkward
stages, I have learned far more than what textbooks
alone had to offer. I have learned how to be a pretty
decent person.
I know you don't need a diploma to be a good per-
son, but what good would a piece of paper be if it were
not in good hands? I firmly believe that a liberal arts ed-
ucation has provided me the opportunity to learn about
myself through learning about other people.
During my youth, I had the opportunity to live in and
travel throughout Europe. Although my family didn't
have as much fun as the National Lampoons' Griswalds,
the experience deeply influenced my appreciation of
culture.
Not everyone has the chance to travel the world and
experience different cultures, but college is culture,
too.
Nowhere else would I haie met so many characters.
The diverse mix of people.who attend my school offer
varying backgrounds and beliefs. My peers have con-
stantly challenged me to broaden my thinking and to view
the world in many perspectives.
Sometimes the most pertinent learning happens out-
side the classroom.
I have also learned that college is not meant for ev-
eryone. I met a girl who rushed into college. She was-
n't mentally or emotionally prepared for the experi-
ence. More importantly, she did not have a passion to
learn. Instead of deciding the right time and circum-
stance to enroll, she began to fail her courses.
I think what hurt her most was the feeling that she failed
herself.
But if you do decide to take on, the proverbial world
of academia, you should know that it is more than a
four-year-long keg party despite what MTV might
show you.
College prepares you for a more "real world" by forc-
ing you to define who you are and who you want to be.
Talk about an extreme makeover.
Choosing a school or destination can be a tedious
process. I have yet to find any shortcuts as I search for
my own destination, but I have observed something
that might make the process less daunting.
If there was a Cliff Notes for college, the foreword
would probably follow the sentiment of President John
F. Kennedy and read: "Ask not what college can do for '
you but vhat you can do to make college the most in-
fluential learning experience of your life.'"
As the fall slowly approaches, I can feel the antici-
pation of high school seniors everywhere. Just as they
completed. One part of their life, they have to immedi-
ately begin another.
I can only.imagine how many young people are suf-
fering from what I call "life anxiety" as they take the
next step or leap into the rest of their lives. It
seems endemic. Whatever college-induced illnesses
they might acquire, they should take comfort in know-
ing the remedy is within reach.

By Sarah Plaut

So, there you are with your high school diploma hot in
your able hands ready to leap onto the college frontier.
You've attended all of the college fairs, you've bought an un-
godly amount of Ramen noodles, and you're ready to leave
your parents in the dust as you go in pursuit of collegiate
bliss.
So you think you're ready? I thought I was, too.
It was the summer of 2003 when I moved to Tallahassee
to attend Florida State University. I was prepared with flop-
py disks, matching towels, a mini fridge, a campus map and,
of course, my stash of noodles. And I looked good, too. I
walked around campus wearing little
sundresses and high heels with my
makeup always done. OK...maybe
my overdone appearance screamed
"freshman," but that didn't dawn on
me at the time.
Well, as a former college freshman
and self-proclaimed perpetual mis-
take-maker, I believe I hold the cre-
dentials to dispense a littleadvice to the

first let you in on a secret you're
going to need more than a fridge and
a map if you want to survive. ''
So, in an effort to help the up-arid- "
coming pillars of scholastic society
avoid making the mistakes that shaped
my freshman experience, I have com-
piled a list of things that I wish some-
one had told me prior to my entrance .
into college.
First, get a working alarm clock, a
comfy mattress pad and a surplus of
Tylenol PM. Without these things, no
freshman should continue further. Do
not pass go; do not enter your dorm
room. Sleep is invaluable in college; so SARAH PLAUT
anything to aid you in this quest will
be of utmost importance.
Remember, college dorms are comparable to jail cells and
do not come complete with soundproof walls.
Learn these Websites: www.Ratemyprofessor.com and
www.Half.com- The first is a guide to the best and worse
professors on campus. College classes are not created equal;
and, therefore, a good professor can make all the difference
in a course (and in your grade).
The second site is where the cheapest textbooks can be
bought. Every upperclassman knows that only uninformed
freshmen buy their books at the college bookstore.
Money Management: Let me first start by saying that
loans and credit cards MUST BE PAID BACK. When you
get your first financial aid check you feel like you've won
the lottery. Prada shoes and Lacoste polos are never so eas-
ily within reach until you have to buy food and textbooks
and pay your sorority dues. If you go into college with the
understanding that money is never free, you are already
ahead. Unfortunately, most students ignore that simple fact
and suffer the consequences. I've seen it happen students
attending endless Scrabble Club meetings simply because they
offer free food. I even had some friends sell their plasma to
make a few extra bucks as a result of such financial dilem-
mas. And honestly, ask yourself, are designer clothes real-
ly worth your plasma?
Find the school gym and library. Most campuses allow
students access to the gym at no addition cost, so you might
as well take advantage. If you want to avoid the infamous
"freshman 15" (or 20), then pull out your running shoes. As

for the library, just know you will spend many nights there,
so you might as well get acquainted early.
Never leave your laundry unattended. Period. I was nev-
er told this little gem of advice prior to my first dorm laun-
dry experience. After throwing my clothes into one of the time-
worn community washing machines, I came back later only
to discover that someone had so kindly added something to
my machine. I ended up with a wardrobe of bleach-stained
clothes. And trust me, no one will think you're cool in your
tie-dyed Citizen jeans. So.guard your laundry.
Go to class. This is coming from a former skipping pi-
oneer. During my first summer at college it wasn't long un-
til I had my professor e-mailing me and inquiring as to my
whereabouts. Oh, I was at college all
right, the college bars, college con-
certs and the college fraternity parties.
I soon realized the importance of at-
tendance in class when my professor
said the letter "F." The "sink-or-swim"
mentality set in, and I made the choice
to reform from a female Van Wilder
to more of a dedicated student. How-
ever, in all seriousness, I soon came
to the realization that college really
wasn't hard as long as you went.
Don't wear your pajamas to class.
S'' ;,: No matter what anyone tells you, it's
never OK. You never know who you
are going to meet, whether it's a new
boyfriend/girlfriend or future em-
ployer. While any school-spirit shirt
and pair of jeans are perfectly accept-
able attire, please leave the boxers and
S.- bath robes at home.
As you can see, no amount of high
school counseling sessions, the "which
college is right for you" tests or parents'
well-meant advice could ever totally
prepare you for the educational whirl-
wind that you will be thrown into.
Sure, all of those generic preparations
help, but those are just icing on the proverbial college cake.
Some things you simply have to experience for yourself.
I mean, who knew you could live off Kraft Easy Mac and
Starbucks? I don't remember reading that survival technique
in any "welcome to college" book. I learned that all onmny
own.
For me, I already knew that college would be difficult. I
knew that I would have to study and study hard. I knew that
my dorm room would render me claustrophobic.
It's the stuff that I had never thought of the things (of-
ten a roommate) that came screaming or scavenger-hunting
or crawling down the dorm hall on a random Tuesday night
'that blindsided me.
It was the ultimate Frisbee at 3 a.m. in the park.
It was checking my e-mail and chatting on AIM when I
should have been researching Buddhism for religion class.
It was watching Sex and the City reruns in the common room
with my new friends.
It was the sorority socials, the Lambda Chi boyfriends,
the college Republican meetings and the snoring roommates
that no college brochure or high school teacher could have
ever prepared me for, but I survived.
However, more importantly, I learned (often the hard way)
how to function in a college atmosphere. I learned just as
every college freshman will.

R.L. Haines donates
$14,000 to Edgewood
Children's Ranch
R.L. Haines Construction, a full-
service general contracting and con-
struction management company, re-
cently donated more than $14,000 to
the Edgewood Children's Ranch. The
contribution will be used for general
operating funds.
"Since the ranch does not receive
any state or federal funding, we
wouldn't be able to provide the high-
quality services that our families des-
perately need without the generosity
of donors like R.L. Haines," said
Gaby Acks of Edgewood Children's
Ranch.
Located in West Orange County,
the Edgewood Children's Ranch re-
habilitates at-risk youth and their fam-
ilies by placing the children in a
Christian-oriented setting, striving to
improve social, academic and be-
havioral skills.
Approximately 98 percent of the
children entering the program are con-
siderably behind in school and cannot
read at their appropriate grade level.
However, after an average stay of 18
months, more than 90 percent of the
children return to school at their cor-
rect reading level.

Ocoee


Ocoee police officers attend Russian study abroad program


Ocoee Police Lt. Charlie Brown, Sgt.
Stephen McCosker and Officer Tom
Maroney recently returned from a study
abroad program through the Universi-
ty of Central Florida where they attended
classroom lectures and conducted site
visits focused on the criminal justice
system in the Russian Federation.
The lecture topics included Russian
history' criminal justice systems, orga-
nized crime and drug enforcement efforts.
Site visits focused on military history.
Lt. Brown, Sgt. McCosker and Offi-
cer Maroney attend UCF where they
are in the master's program in criminal
justice, the master's program in public
administration and the doctorate pro-
gram in public affairs, respectively.
The Ocoee officers visited Stalin-
grad's St. Basil's Cathedral in Red
Square, a church built by Ivan the Ter-
rible in 1661.
According to Sgt. McCosker, "In an-
cient Russia, the word 'red' meant beau-
tiful."
They also had their photo taken in
front of the Sons of Russia and Mother
Russia monuments to those who fought
in the Battle of Stalingrad during the
Second World War.
Stalingrad was destroyed by the Ger-
mans, and this event had a profound im-
pact on Russia and its criminal justice sys-
tem and strong military presence.
On the first day of lectures at the Vol-
gograd Law Academy, the Ocoee offi-
cers presented the director of the acade-
my, Gen. Boris Smagorinski, with an
OPD hat in appreciation for the law
academy's hosting the American study
abroad program.
This law academy is very different
from the U.S. police academy system.
Their cadets attend classes for five years,
and when they graduate with a diplo-
ma of higher education, they can be-
come police administrators (like mili-
tary officers) or investigators (which is
similar to our state prosecutors).
The program was coordinated by Dr.
Mike Reynolds of the University of Cen-
tral Florida and Dr. Anatoly Nikonov
and Elena Emelyanova of the Volgograd
Law Academy.
The Ocoee officers would like to
thank the city of Ocoee for allowing
them to attend this program and their
law academy cadet guides, Denis
Tsvetkov, Kate Fortuna and Julia
Chernikova, who provided invaluable
insight into the daily life of the Russian
people.
UCF plans to host Russian law acade-
my students in the U.S. in February of
2007, and the Ocoee ,officers have
pledged to return the hospitality they
were shown while studying in Russia.

Steven Thompson
will have to have a bone
marrow transplant at
Duke University
Hospital.

By Mary Anne Swickerath

It's hard enough to be diagnosed
with acute myelogenous leukemia as
a high school senior and to endure in-
tensive chemotherapy to survive. It's
even harder to find out not long after
finishing your freshman year in col-
lege and after being in remission
- that the leukemia has recurred and
a bone marrow transplant will be re-
quired, along with more chemo. It
harder still to realize this transplant,
if successful, will give you only a 50-
50 chance of survival.
This is the story of Ocoee 19-year-
old Steven Thompson.
In the fall of 2004, Steven was hap-
py to be back on the football field for
the West Orange High Warriors to
resume his senior year after hurri-
canes Charley and Frances disrupted
the beginning of the season.
He was injured during the Sept. 17,
2004, game vs. Apopka, suffering a
deep cut on his arm. But, after having
the cut wrapped up on the sidelines
by the trainers, he played the rest of


the game.
Following the game, he received
stitches for his wound but felt sick all
weekend, with chills and fever and
the cut wasn't healing well. The fam-
ily doctor diagnosed him with the flu
and prescribed antibiotics.
But after his mother, a registered
nurse, noticed tiny spots on his chest
and back, she took him for blood tests.
It didn't take long for them to receive
word that Steven had an extremely
high white blood cell count and
should be taken immediately to Flori-
da Hospital South.
In a healthy person, the white blood
count is approximately 5,000.
Steven's count was up to about
176,000. He was diagnosed with
acute myelogenous leukemia (AML).
AML is a malignant cancer of the
bone marrow and blood. Its effects
are uncontrolled growth and accu-
mulation of cells called leukemic
blasts and the blockage of normal
marrow cell production. This leads
to a deficiency of red cells, platelets
and normal white cells in the blood.
Its cause is unknown, since it is not in-
herited.
After his therapy, Steven graduat-
ed with his class in 2005 and com-
pleted his freshman year at the Uni-
versity of Central Florida. But now
he is back fighting for his life and fac-
ing a bone marrow transplant.

The son of Gene and Diane Thomp-
son of Sleepy Harbour, Steven un-
derwent another round of chemo this
summer at Florida Hospital South.
He and his mother will be traveling to
Duke University Hospital for the bone
marrow transplant. They are waiting
for word from the hospital staff that
it is ready for Steven's operation.
None of his family members, in-
cluding his two brothers, are a close
enough bone marrow match. But a
donor registry has 152 preliminary
matches.
Steven will have to be in remission
before receiving the transplant, so the
family is hopeful that the recent
chemo has achieved this.
He will have to have more chemo
if tests show he is not in remission.
This remission will have to be main-
tained with chemo until the transplant.
Diane has taken a leave of absence
from her nursing job at Florida Hos-
pital to take care of Steven and ac-
company him to Duke University
Hospital. This stay in North Carolina,
which will include renting an apart-
ment, will last at least three months
and more likely six months. The
Thompsons' insurance only covers
living expenses for six weeks.

Winning photos capture essence of summer


This photo taken by Sheryl Loesch of Winter Garden could easily be used as an advertisement inviting guests to Venice,

he found the hose more refreshing than his little pool. His grandmoth-
er, Patti Sylvia of Apopka, snapped the picture in her frorit yard and

Thursday, August 3, 2006 The West Orange Times 3B


Warrior Head Football Coach Tim Smith holds a sample of the Pro-
Grass synthetic turf that will be installed this month on West Orange High's
Raymond Screws Field.


WOHS
fields produce more player injuries.
Unlike Astroturf, the first artificial
turf widely used by professional sports
venues in the 1970s and '80s, modern
synthetic turf has cushioning that's
equivalent or better than natural grass.
The two-and-a-half-inch-tall Pro-
Grass turf at WOHS will consist of
blades of artificial grass standing amid
tiny bits of ground-up tires that simu-
late dirt. Athletes can wear standard
cleats on the new field rather than
shoes made for Astroturf.
Since the playing surface remains
consistent and smooth, unlike natural
grass fields that become littered with
divots over the course of a season, ath-
letes will be in less danger of sustain-
ing injuries.
When heavy rain falls, athletic fields
become more dangerous and events
are often cancelled due to poor
drainage. Natural grass, Smith esti-
mated, can only withstand two or three
inches of rain per hour. ProGrass turf,
however, can handle 14 inches of rain
per hour and will not leave standing
water.
Having the region's only synthetic
field, Smith said, will be a huge boost
'for the school's image and the West
Orange County economy. Braland,
who has served as the football team's
chaplain for 20 years and is helping
lead the West Orange Foundation's
fund-raising efforts, agreed.
"West Orange has always been a
stepchild in the Metro," Braland said.
"This is the first time we will be tak-


ing the lead."
The WOHS Marching Band will
host a band competition next spring, and
Smith said he has talked with Disney
officials about using the new field as
an overflow venue for the Wide World
of Sports complex. Hosting meets and
competitions that draw people from
throughout Central Florida, Smith pre-
dicted, will bring business to local
stores and restaurants.
Renovating the track surrounding
the field, which could happen in the
coming years, would allow WOHS to
host large track meets.
New locker rooms, weightlifting and
athletic training facilities, which all
currently reside beneath the stadium
seats, will be built as part of the new
West Orange High. A large, arched
entryway to the football field, Smith
said, will be erected behind the north
end zone.
To pay for this endeavor, the West
Orange Foundation will rely on com-
munity support, grants and fund-rais-
ers.
The new stadium entryway will in-
clude the Warrior Walk of Fame,
which will be paved with personalized
bricks that the foundation will sell to
the community. Individuals or busi-
nesses that would like to see their
names in larger print can help the cause
by purchasing naming rights.
SThe official name of the WOHS sta-
dium can be had for $300,000. The
scoreboard will be named for
$150,000, and the new entryway is up


for grabs at $25,000. A business can
even have its logo painted on the field
for $75,000.
The West Orange Foundation is pur-
suing the NFL Grassroots Field and
Orange County Parks and Recreation
Field of Dreams grants that could bring
in $200,000 and $100,000, respec-
tively. Conservation grants might also
be available, Braland said, because of
the million of gallons of water the new
field will save.
Carter Family Bowl in Winter Gar-
den will host a bowling fund-raiser in
December incorporating all WOHS
sports and clubs. The event is antici-
pated to raise about $20,000. The foun-
dation also plans to hold an online raf-
fle in which 10,000 tickets will be sold
for $100 apiece. Tickets should go on
sale this fall with drawings held the
following spring.
About 20 percent of the project's
total cost, Smith said, will be cut thanks
to the contributions of local contractors
working on the field.
Tons of rocks that will serve as the
foundation for the turf are being sold
to the West Orange Foundation at half
price by Smokey Valley Stone Co. in
Clermont. Exclusive Homes in Winter
Garden is performing sub-field work
on the rock base and drainage system
for almost no charge. Ameri-Can Haul-
ing has been transporting rocks to
WOHS at less than half price.

has committed to paying ProGrass its
$510,000 fee up front. Funds raised
by the West Orange Foundation will be
used to pay back The Stear Group Incc
Braland said the foundation is confident
it will pay off its debt within three td
five years.
The financial planning won't end;
though, once the fund-raising is over.
As a stipulation for granting its ap-
proval, OCPS required the West Orang,
Foundation to establish a fund to pay
for future turf replacement.
West Orange's new field comes with
an eight-year warranty. In about 10
years, Smith said, the top layer of turf
will need to be replaced for about
$200,000. The foundation, he said,
will charge any outside entities for use
of the field and place the money in its
savings fund.
All sports programs and clubs that
use the field will participate in fund-rais-
ing efforts and benefit from the West
Orange Foundation.
"The foundation is not geared to-
wards one group," Smith said. "It'd
not a booster club."
The long-term purpose of the foun-
dation, he added, is to support WOHS
beyond athletics.
"We've got a huge vision," Smith
said. "It was started as an athletic vi-
sion, but we want to leave a legacy
that can do things for all aspects of the
school. We're taking it to the next
evel."

The inaugural graduating class of Lake-Sumter Community College's Alternative Teacher Certification Pro-
gram (1-r): Cherilynn Tremarco, Jesse Campbell, Geraldine Lauritzen, Karen Lord, Debra Dvorak, Suzanne
Miller, David Corder, Gemma-Lee Cole, Rebekah Csont, Cynthia Randolph, Jennifer Vallon and Marsha
Meadows. Not pictured are Dana Cook, Ruby Mitchell, Catherine Socarras and Neena Zacharias.

First future teachers earn LSCC Alternative Teacher Certification


i, Lake-Sumter Community College's
Alternative Teacher Certification Pro-
gram provides an opportunity to teach
for people who have a bachelor's de-
gree in a non-educational field. Six-
teen students graduated recently dur-
ing the program's first commence-
ment.
SFamily members were on hand to
hare in the accomplishments of their
others, fathers, husbands, wives,
ons and daughters.
..The classes are condensed into sev-
en months of Friday evenings and
Saturday, so the program is a big


commitment not only for the students
but also for their families.
A police chief, Navy lieutenant, at-
torney, chiropractor and a pharmacist
are just some of the professions prac-
ticed by the graduates, many of whom
have already been offered teaching
positions.
The ATC Program is an important
component of a state initiative called
the Educator Preparation Institute.
Motivated by the projected need of
up to 35,000 teachers over the next
three years, the department of edu-
cation is looking for innovative ways


to meet the demand.
The ATC Program is designed for
those who have earned a bachelor's de-
gree from a regionally accredited
four-year school but have no formal
training in education. The classes pre-
pare them for the certification re-
quired to become teachers in a K-12
school.
LSCC's second ATC class will
complete its program in November.
A new seven-month series will start
in January.
For information, call Dr. Diane Ed-
wards at 352-435-5048.


Spring Lake Elementary has 1 of the best cafeterias in town. The cafeteria employees are always cheer-
ful and make sure that the students get nutritious meals. The team was honored earlier in the year and re-
ceived the Best School Cafeteria Team Award for Orange County. Pictured is Jeri Mohr with Janet Sims,
Dee Anderson and Amy Cruz.


UCP Middle School is now enrolling


United Cerebral Palsy of Central
Florida is now accepting limited ap-
plications for its new charter mid-
dle school that is set to open in Au-
gust. Designed for children with all
types of disabilities, the Transition-
al Learning Academy celebrates
each student's abilities by focusing
on what they can do rather than what
they are unable to do.
Characteristics of the type of stu-
dents who will be successful in the
program include those having some
functional way to communicate
(verbally, sign language or a com-
munication device), kids with cog-


nitive differences who are looking for
a new approach to instruction, chil-
dren whose behavior is not the main
impairment, those with ability to
follow at least simple commands
and learn basic skills and children
with parents who are willing to ac-
tively participate/support the pro-
gram.
The school is free for all eligible
students and will be held at UCP of
Central Florida's Holloway Center,
3305 S. Orange Ave., Orlando.
For more information and t6 ob-
tain an application, call 407-852-

Thespians in Scotland
SThanks to the generosity of the Ro-
tary Club of Dr. Phillips, as well as the
efforts of students, parents and com-
munity supporters, the Dr. Phillips High
theater Magnet students are now in
Edinburgh, Scotland, to perform Sues-
sical: The Musical atthe International
Fringe Festival.
'Following the Rotary Club's very
successful Fourth of July Celebration,
where the theater students helped with
-activities and entertainment, the club
presented the Thespians with a check
for $10,000 for their trip.
.I -Added to other fund-raising efforts
during the past year, the club's contri-
.bution makes the students' dream


come true a dream that includes not
only the Edinburgh festival but also
sightseeing in London, a performance
at the Globe Theatre, a performance by
the Royal Shakespeare Company in
Stratford and much more.
The local community has a final op-
portunity to see Suessical: The Musi-
cal Aug. 24-26 at 7 p.m. and Aug. 27
at 11 a.m. There will also be a fun-filled
children's matinee and lunch on Aug.
26 at 11 a.m. where children can take
pictures with their favorite Dr. Seuss
characters, such as Horton the Ele-
phant, the Cat in the Hat, the Whos of
Whoville and more.
The theater students, along with their
director, Karen Rugerio, appreciate all


the support they have received to make
this trip possible for 56 students. Ev-
eryone has worked hard, including the
students who have spent their sum-
mer in final fund-raising efforts.
Student Tracey Leffler said: "We've
had a different summer than most nor-
mal teenagers. Our summer has been
spent working toward having a suc-
cessful show overseas while everyone
else is at the beach. But in the end, it
will be worth it."
For information about getting com-
munity exposure for businesses all
year long in the Pawbillads (part of the
program given out at each DPHS
show), call the theater at 407-355-

Jake Chabot was the 6th-grade
winner of the Modem Woodmen
Oration Contest at Windy Ridge
School. He went on to compete at
the county level and won and then
took 3rd place at the state level.

VCC seeks to improve
freshman reading levels
In 2006, 25 percent of third-
graders failed the Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment Test in reading,
which means that more than 51,000
students will not move on to the
fourth grade this fall.
Likewise, many students starting
out at Valencia Community College
are held back in their studies because
of struggles with reading. Slightly
more than half of the entering fresh-
man class of spring 2006 required
remedial course work in reading.
In addition to undertaking mea-
sures to address this disparity among
its current student body, Valencia is
also launching a program to help par-
ents attending the college to read to
their children from a young age and
leave them better prepared for col-
lege later on.
The English faculty on VCC's
West Campus has developed a 12-
minute video, Raising Readers, to
be shown in Valencia reading class-
es this fall. The video highlights how
to read to children, when to start and
why it is important, based on re-
search presented in Jim Trelease's
best-seller, The Read-Aloud Hand-
book.
According to his research, the pre,
vention of poor literacy seems to
strongly correlate with reading aloud
to children from the time they are in-
fants. VCC wants to encourage such
vital early interest in reading, be-
ginning with the children of its own
student body, in an effort to break
the cycle of illiteracy or poor litera-
cy.
Along with the release of the
video, VCC will hold a series of
events this fall to encourage Valen-
cia students/parents, as well as par-
,ents in the community, to read to
their kids.
"Fall Into Reading" will include
novelist, poet and children's author
Julianna Baggot reading from-one of
her children's stories on the West.
Campus on Sept. 14 from 1-2:30
p.m. In October, the entire VCC
community will read a novel appro-
priate to pre-teens for later discus-
sion. Story time with children's au-
thor Dianne Ochiltree is tentatively
planned for the West Campus library.
The event will include stations for
children to draw pictures of the sto-
ries they've heard.
For more information or for a copy
of the video, Raising Readers, call
Jackie Zuromski at 407-582-1074 or
e-mail to jzuromski@valenciacc.edu.


Private outings with teachers are among the most sought after silent
auction items at the annual Windermere Prep Volunteer Association
Spring Gala. These items, referred to as "gifts from the heart," are do-

or even playing golf with a faculty member. .Pictured are (from left,

OCPS policy for free,
reduced-price meals
Orange County Public Schools re-
cently announced its policy for free and
reduced- price meals for students under
the National School Lunch Program..
Household size and income criteria
will be used to determine eligibility. Chil-
dren from families whose income is at
or below the level shown on the appli-
cation may be eligible.
An application cannot be approved un-
less it contains complete eligibility ii-
formation. Once approved, meal bene-
fits are good for an entire year. A fami-
ly need not notify the organization-of
changes in income and household size.
Application forms are being sent to all
homes with a letter to parents or
guardians. To apply for free or reduced-
price meals, households must complete
the application and return it to the school.
Additional copies are available at the
principal's office in each school. Appli-
cations can be submitted at any time dur-
ing the year.
Households that receive Food Stamps
or TANF (Temporary Assistanceto
Needy Families) are required to list on
the application only the child's name,
Food Stamp/TANF case number and the
signature of an adult household member.
Foster children may receive benefits
based on the child's personal income, re-
gardless of the income of the household.
Households with children who are con-
sidered migrants, homeless or runaway
should contact the district liaison or the
Free & Reduced Department at 407-317-
3966.
For the purpose of determining house-
hold size, deployed service members are
considered a part of the household. Fam-
ilies should include the names of the de-
ployed service members on their appli-
cation and report only that portion of the
service member's income made avail-
able to them or on their behalf to the fam-
ily. Additionally, a housing allowance
that is part of the Military Housing Pri-
vatization Initiative is not to be included
as income.
All other households must provide the
total household income listed by amount
received and type of income and how bf-
ten the income is received (wages, child
support, etc.) received by each house-
hold member, names of all household
members, the signature of an adult house-
hold member certifying the information.
is correct and the Social Security number
of the adult signing the application or the
word "none" if this member does not
have a number.
If a household member becomes ui-
employed or if the household size
changes, the school should be contact-
ed. Children of parents or guardians who
become unemployed should also contact
the school. Such changes may make the
student eligible for reduced price or free
meals.

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


The other.day when my husband used the word "deli-
cate" to describe me, I very firmly said, "No, I'm not! I am
malenkee slon!" To tell the truth I surprised myself (and
him), as it had been a long time since I had even thought
about my grandmother's nickname for me. "Malenkee
slon" is Russian for "small elephant". In that moment I re-
called how as an awkward young girl that nickname had
stung. Because those words were used by someone I loved,
someone I trusted, they had affected me and helped shape
my perception of myself.
In Proverbs 12:18 it gays that "reckless words pierce
like a sword." We know that words can leave lasting, deep
wounds. Recently I overheard a man I know criticize his
teenage son to a co-worker. The boy was close enough to
hear his dad and I saw the look of hurt and shame in his
eyes. I could tell at once that this wasn't the first time....it
was the norm for them. I hurt for him so very much.

Parents and grandparents...stop and listen to your-
selves! Once you speak those words you can't take them
back. The things you say to your children matter. But the
things you say about them matter just as much. Speak the
TRUTH about your children...that they are precious and
unique and masterpieces created by Almighty God. They
are entrusted to you to care for while they are young. What
you tell them about themselves, what they hear you say
about them, will very likely become what they believe
about themselves.
Proverbs 12:18 also says that, "the tongue of the wise
brings healing." As parents we all have regrets. I can't
take back the harsh words I've spoken to and about my
children, but I can pray that the blessings they hear from
my lips now will be a balm that brings healing.
