- A fund-raiser on
Friday will help David
Shiner's family rebuild
their lives following a
Dec. 27 house fire.

By Amy Quesinberry

Jeremy, 12, lost his new TV, his
new Star Wars and Lord of the Rings
trilogies and his video games. Eight-
year-old Kelsea lost all her new
clothes. The 4-year-old twins didn't
even get to play with their new toys
from Santa. And their parents, David
and Liz Shiner, are trying their best to
clean the soot off their clothes and fur-
niture - and his U.S. Army medals.
For the adults, house fires are dev-
astating because they destroy not only
their belongings, but also their peace
of mind.
It's even worst for children two days
after Christmas.
Liz and the children were home the
morning of Dec. 27 when Jeremy spot-
ted sparks coming from a connection
box near the master bedroom closet.
The fire gutted the bedroom and
burned through connecting walls. The
ceiling fell and scorched the twins'
beds. Smoke and water damaged the
rest of the house.
No one was injured, including the
family's two dogs.
David Shiner - a reservist with the
U.S. Army who recently returned from
Kuwait - and his family live in Grov-
eland but are temporarily living in a
house in Clermont while they figure out
whether to repair or rebuild. They were
busy Monday moving in with what
little they have.
The Shiners are still hoping they
can salvage their dining room table
and hutch, a double bed, a twin bed
and two small chest of drawers - if
they can get the smoke smell out. The
sm6ke ruined their televisions and
computers. The children lost their col-
lection of books and DVDs.
David's parents, Sandi and Jimmy
DeLoach of Ocoee, have been e-mail-
ing friends soliciting donations of
clothing and household staples like
pots and pans, dishes, towels, linens,
bathroom supplies and food.
Jeremy, a conservative dresser,
wears a size 12 in pants and shirts and
a size 6 shoe. Some donations have
come in for the other three children
from friends with children the same

World, celebrating the fact that everyone is safe after a fire destroyed
their home.


age, but Jeremy is still without the ba-
sic necessities.
DeLoach said she gave him money
last week to buy some clothes, "and
he took it to his dad to split up for the
other children, saying he can get by
with what he has."
Kelsea, a dancer, wears an 8 in
clothes and a size 2 shoe and likes any-
thing that sparkles. The twins, Ryan
and Madison; wear 4T clothing and
size 10 shoes. All are in need of church
and play clothes, as well as pajamas and
underwear. The older two already have
new uniforms for school.
DeLoach will pick up any items;
donors can call her at 407-765-1478.
She said gift cards to Wal-Mart, Tar-
get and Sam's Club would be useful,
too, because her son can buy food,
household items and clothing at these
locations.
"They are proud but grateful," De-
Loach said, "and it so warms my heart
to see people give back to a young
man who has given us so much of him-
self for us and his country."
David didn't lose much of his


wardrobe, but Liz lost all of hers. She
has received clothing from her sisters
and from DeLoach.
The Chick-fil-A at 2585 W. High-
way 50 in Clermont is holding a fund-
raiser this Friday, Jan. 12, from 5-8
p.m., and a portion of the proceeds
will go to the Shiner family. Business
of Art Center will also post an art auc-
tion with proceeds supporting the fam-
ily.
The fire was just the most recent
challenge for this family, which has
endured long periods of time apart.
David Shiner, a 20-year employee
of Walt Disney World, has been de-
ployed four times as a reservist. The
children have been without their fa-
ther for most of the past four years
while he was in Kuwait. The twins
were 11 days old when he was de-
ployel the first time and were 2 when
he was sent back to Ku�vaitfor near-
ly another year.
"They are survivors, and this has
brought them closer together again,"
DeLoach said. "That which does not
break us makes us stronger."


- Mere Development's
Oakdale subdivision
encroaches on wetlands,
and the developer wants
to pave dirt roads.

By Amy Quesinberry

The year started off with a work-
shop for the Oakland Town Commis-
sion and town staff on an issue that
started last year and could continue
for months. Officials met with repre-
sentatives of Oakdale, a 39-home sub-
division planned in Oakland, last
Wednesday to sort out the issues,
which now involve Orange County
and the St. Johns River Water Man-
agement District.
This development could have seri-
ous implications on nearby wetlands if
not handled properly, which is why
the town is going to great lengths to
protect the land.
Oakland has adopted SJRWMD's
stormwater and wetland rules and has
deferred to the district on these issues


in the past. However, the county'.s
charter states that if a municipality
does not have any regulations gov-
erning a certain topic, or if its rules are
less strict than the county's, then the
county's rules apply.
At the workshop, county officials
maintained that their rules were con-
sistent with SJRWMD.
Lee Chotis, the attorney for David
Ballinger, president of Mere Devel-
opment, said the town must defer to
the county to avoid deviating from the
precedent.
According to the town, Orange
County has never taken a position be-
fore regarding municipal wetlands.
The Town Commission was sched-
uled to hold a public hearing at its
meeting Tuesday night (after
presstime). The developer was asking
for approval of the site plan, which in-
cludes paving portions of roads that
lead up to the subdivision entrance.
Oakland's regulations require all new
subdivisions to have one paved-road ac-
cess, and there are currently no paved
roads leading to the proposed Oakdale.
The town was expected to conduct


a survey with residents in the area to
get their opinions on the paving.
In a 2002 referendum, residents vot-
ed against paving the town's roads.
Town Planner Roland Magyar told
The West Orange Times on Monday
that if the town waives the paving re-
quirement, then it will have to deal
with the construction vehicles' wear
and tear on the dirt roads. If the com-
mission approves the plan, including
the paving portion, it will, ultimately,
decrease the town's maintenance re-
sponsibilities on the roads.
"Either decision has positives and
negatives to it," Magyar said.
The Jan. 3 workshop was a contin-
uation of the public hearing from the
Nov. 14 meeting. The matter had also
been tabled at the Oct. 24 meeting to
give town staff time to look into the
wetland and paving issues.
The commission could not make a
decision last week because the meet-
ing was merely a workshop. Town At-
torney Ed Mills said, however, that the
commission could approve the site
plan subject to approval by the St.
Johns district.

Scott Vandergrift to run

again for Ocoee mayor


By Mary Anne Swickerath

Three seats on the Ocoee City
Commission are up for election on
Tuesday, March 13, the munici-
pal election date in Orange Coun-
ty. On the ballot will be the po-
sitions of mayor, currently held
by Scott Vandergrift, and District
1 and District 3 commissioners,
now occupied by Gary Hood and
Rusty Johnson, respectively.
The qualifying period for these
posts will be open for one week,
from noon Friday, Jan. 19, until
noon Friday, Jan. 26. Qualifying
packets are available in the city
clerk's office.
When asked by The West Or-
ange Times Monday if he planned
to run again, Vandergrift said it
had been a tough decision but he
was putting his name in for re-
election one more time.
At the West Orange Chamber
Mayors' Luncheon last Septem-
ber, Vandergrift announced his
retirement, but the current con-
troversy with the Orange Coun-
ty School Board's proposal to
move Ocoee residents to the new
Apopka Relief High School in
August was a factor that made
him reconsider his decision.
"This charter school thing has


got me excited again," he said,
referring to the City Commis-
sion's current ongoing explo-
ration of options to the tradition-
al countywide public school sys-
tem.
He said Lake Wales put the
charter issue to a vote of the peo-
ple and it was passed. Out of this
city's five schools, four are char-
tdr schools.
"If we had only Ocoee resi-
dents attending Ocoee schools,
they would be only 75 percent
full," said Vandergrift.
In an e-mailed press release
Monday afternoon, Vandergrift
added to his reasons,for running
again.
"Our city is at the midway
point of our growth potential, and
the decisions we make over the
next few years will be critical to
the quality of life for all," he
wrote. "I know that I can add ex-
perienc'e, fairness, integrity and
foresight to the necessary deci-
sions."
He added: "Safety isequally
as important as the education of
our children to the extent that we
are surrounded by areas over
which we have little control of

CHC receives grant from Westgate Resorts


Community Health Centers
(CHS) received $2,500 in support
of the Mommy & Me Prenatal In-
centive Program from the Westgate
Resorts Foundation. The grant will
be used to purchase 50 infant car
seats for the program participants.
In order to reverse the trend of
late entry into prenatal care, CHC
began the new program - Momnmy
& Me - in March 2005 at the Pine
Hills Family Health Center. The pro-
gram is funded by the Orange Coun-
ty Healthy Start Coalition.
This nationally acclaimed pro-
gram offers 10 one-hour education-


al and obstetrical-care group ses-
sions to teens and first-time mothers.
They receive information about nu-
trition, pregnancy, birth control,
childcare and related healthcare ed-
ucation.
In order to increase enrollment in
the program, CHC started a Prena-
tal Incentive Program offering a free
infant car seat to participants. Once
a woman has completed eight of the
10 sessions, she is given the car seat.
This is a major incentive for new
moms to begin prenatal care early
because they cannot afford to pur-
chase a car seat on their own.

Opinion


A crrot for teachers helps students stick to the books,
according to a new University of Florida study that
finds merit pay for instructors equates to better test
scores for their pupils. Pay incentives for teachers had
more positive effects on student test scores than such
school improvement methods as smaller class sizes or
stricter requirements for classroom attendance, said
David Figlio, a UF economics professor. The study, by
Figlio and UF economics professor Lawrence Kenny,
has been accepted for publication in a forthcoming is-
sue of the Journal of Public Economics.
"This research provides the first systematic evidence
of a relationship between individual teacher perfor-
mance incentives and student achievement in the Unit-
ed States," Figlio said. "We demonstrate that students
learn more when teachers are given financial incen-
tives to do a better job."
Students at schools with teacher pay-for-performance
programs scored an average of one to two percentage
points higher on standardized tests than their peers at
schools where no bonuses were offered, Figlio said.
"While many explanations have been offered for the
disappointing performance of primary and secondary
schools, one untested hypothesis lays the blame on
there being little or no incentive for teachers to do a good
job," he said. "Good teachers make no more than unin-
spired, mediocre teachers."
The UF study found the effects of these pay incen-
tives were strongest in schools with students from the
poorest families, perhaps because those schools have
the most to gain from the incentive plan, Figlio said.
"Many teachers complain that poor parents often
are uninvolved in their children's education," he said.
"Since there appears to be less parental monitoring in
schools serving poorer families, these schools stand
to have a greater potential for improvement."
Figlio and Kenny collected surveys from 534 schools
that were among 1,319 public and private schools par-
ticipating in a national study sponsored by the U.S.
Department of Education beginning in 1988. They also
collected data on the frequency and magnitude of school
salary incentives, analyzing it in relation to student
achievement. That achievement was measured in the


earlier U.S. Department of Education study on eighth-
graders, with follow-up surveys done in 10th and 12th
grades.
About 16 percent of American schools have teach-
er pay-for-performance programs in place, Figlio said.
Such financial incentives were the rule rather than the
exception early in the 20th century, but they gradual-
ly became less prevalent starting in the 1960s, proba-
bly because of the rising strength of teachers' unions,
he said.
Many teachers criticize these bonus plans, saying
they raise questions about fairness and they destroy
cooperation among teachers.
"It's important to note that the form of performance
pay we're looking at is linked to student outcomes
rather than principal assessments," Figlio said. "One
reason why performance pay based on principal as-
sessments is not very effective is that principals are
under a huge amount of pressure to say that everybody
is excellent."
One proposal that links teachers' bonuses to student
, performance is a Florida plan that awards the top 10 per-
cent of teachers in each school district a five percent
bonus based on student gains on the Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment Test. Figlio believes such an ap-
proach, using standardized tests, recognizes individu-
al teacher accomplishments without destroying the in-
centive of teachers within a school to work together.
"This is important because one of the major criti-
cisms of performance-pay systems is that teaching is
a collaborative enterprise," he said. "If a principal has
to identify a single excellent teacher, it could end up
pitting one colleague against another."
The study also found that merit-pay proposals that
targeted only a few teachers for bonuses were more
effective than programs in which large numbers of in-
structors received some kind of reward, Figlio said.
"Doling out merit pay to most teachers seems to pro-
vide them with little incentive to do a better job," he
said.
Figlio said he believes the ideal merit pay system
would reward both individual teachers as well as teams
of teachers.

PCA hosts Construction 101 workshop


A shortage of professionals with ex-
perience and knowledge of the con-
struction industry has spurred com-
mercial property inspection specialist
Property Condition Assessment (PCA)
to launch an educational workshop on
construction for the state's commercial
lenders.
The one-hour presentation called
Construction 101 will be a basic "A to
Z" introduction to construction designed
specifically for commercial real estate
lenders and will be introduced this
month with three of Florida's largest
lenders already signed up, according to
PCA President and Ocoee resident
Robert McBride.
"There are literally hundreds of
lenders working today who have nev-
er set foot on a construction site, yet are
responsible for dispersing millions of
dollars each day in construction draws,"
McBride said. "Our workshop is in-
tended to provide these professionals
with a better understanding and appre-
ciation of the industry and how it
works."
PCA, one of the state's leading com-
mercial property inspection companies
with more than 75 million square feet
of space to its credit, has been con-
ducting third-party site inspection ser-
vices for commercial lenders for more
than nine years. These inspections oc-
cur during the various stages of con-
struction to verify that the scheduled
work has been completed so that the
lender can disperse funds to the con-
tractors.
Providing third-party inspections for


ROBERT McBRIDE


commercial lenders has been the fastest-
growing segment of PCA's business
and the rationale behind its education-
al workshop.
"It's a natural progression," said
McBride. "Although most lenders don't
have the time or resources to visit each
and every property in its portfolio and
rely on companies like us, they do owe
it to themselves to have a better under-
standing of what's happening to that
property when they sign that check.
"That's the concept behind our work-
shop - to provide them with a basic
understanding of the construction pro-
cess."


Convention Center tradeshows donate
more than $1 million locally in 2006
I.


SWhile the Orange County Conven-
tion Center is known for providing an
economic boost to the Central Flori-
da community, it's also become a ma-
jor source of donations for several of
the area's charitable organizations.
More than $1 million in funds and
goods were donated to local organi-
zations in 2006 by visiting conven-
tions and tradeshows and their ex-
hibitors and attendees.
More than two dozen visiting shows
made donations that included nearly
100,000 pounds of food to local food
banks, more than $200,000 in educa-
tional supplies and grants and more
than $100,000 in monetary donations.
"We're very proud of all the con-
Ventions and shows that choose to
make a donation to one of our local
groups," said Kathie Canning, the con-
vention center's deputy general man-
iger. "It's great to see our visitors are
providing a positive economic impact
to our community by not only spend-
ing locally but also giving locally."

NO-RISK LISTING

You have decided to move, but you
are afraid to put your present home
on the market until you have found a
new one and completed purchase ne-
gotiations. You have found that most
sellers are reluctant to finalize offers
from buyers who must include a con-
tingency that calls for the sale of a cur-
rent residence before settling on the
new oie. In today's competitive mar-
ket, you are often bidding against pre-
qualified buyers willing to make no-
contingency offers.
If you are in such a dilemma, the
first step is to contact a professional Re-
altor. The agent can show you how to
list your home without the risk of dis-
rupting you and your family. When
you have a firm contract from a qual-
ified buyer, you will be able to make
a much more attractive offer to sellers.
When you do find the perfect home,
you will greatly increase your chances
of being able to buy it.
If you would like to talk further
about buying or selling real estate,
please contact Libby Tomyn CRS at
Century 21 Professional Group. Call
me on my personal message line, 321-
293-2160.

Health Central earns ACR

ultrasound accreditation


As the result of a recent survey by the
American College of Radiology
(ACR), Health Central Hospital in
Ocoee earned a three-year term of ac-
creditation in ultrasound.
Headquartered in Reston, Va., the
ACR awards accreditation to facilities
for the achievement of high practice
standards after a peer-review evalua-
tion of the practice.
Evaluations are conducted by board-
certified physicians and medical physi-
cists who are experts in the field. They
assess image quality, personnel qual-
ifications, adequacy of facility equip-


ment, quality control procedures and
quality assurance programs. The sur-
veyors report their finding to the ACR
Committee on Accreditation, which
subsequently provides the practice with
a comprehensive report.
The ACR is a national organization
serving more than 32,000 diagnos-
tic/interventional radiologists, radia-
tion oncologists, nuclear medicine
physicians and medical physicians
with programs for focusing on the
practices of medical imaging, radia-
tion oncology and the delivery of com-
prehensive health care services.


Universal offers healthier food choices at theme parks


Universal Florida has adopted the

Healthy beverage choices are also
available at many locations through-
out the park.

Healthcare groups partner with W.G.'s Birth Place


The Birth Place, a unique birthing
center and midwifery practice in Win-
ter Garden, has announced that it will
receive funding from the Winter Park
Health Foundation, an organization
dedicated to making a positive dif-
ference in people's lives by creating
healthy communities.
The mission of Jennie Joseph, clin-
ical director of The Birth Place, is to
improve birth outcomes through qual-
ity prenatal care in Central Florida.
The funds will help The Birth Place
continue to offer uninsured and un-
der-insured pregnant women access
to maternity healthcare, improving
overall well-being for both the moth-
er and the unborn child.
The Birth Place has experienced an
influx of uninsured women who have
been unable to start their prenatal care
in a timely fashion, according to
Joseph. She says early entry into pre-
natal care makes a difference and that
consistent care produces much-im-
proved outcomes. Coupled with these
efforts, Joseph said, she has seen an
amazing turn-around in the number

as a result, we have struggled through-
out the years, accepting women for
care regardless of their ability to pay.
"These funds will allow us to offer
more women a chance to experience
not just physical care, but the overall
support and encouragement that mid-
wives provide using a holistic ap-

women know about the changes their
bodies go through during pregnancy,
the more they are able to help them-

a positive birth outcome brings to the
entire community."

Do you have more citrus in your
backyard than you could ever eat
or give away? Here's a solution.
On Jan. 20 between 9 a.m. and 1
p.m. local residents can join the
Society of St. Andrew, local food
banks and hundreds of volunteers
in Central Florida to feed the hun-
gry with local citrus.
Annual Citrus Drive events cur-

150,000 pounds of fresh citrus that
would otherwise go to waste.

nationwide, non-profit, faith-
based organization that has a vi-
sion for feeding the hungry in
America. It is attempting to bridge
the gap between the 96 billion
pounds of produce wasted annu-
ally in this country and the 36 mil-

secure.

Registration opens for Relay For Life teams
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of West Orange is just
around the comer. Register a team now by calling the ACS at 407-843-8680.
This celebration of life brings the West Orange community together in
a unified effort to fight cancer. Former and current cancer patients, their fam-
ilies, businesses, civic organizations and the public are invited to take part
in this team event from 6 p.m. on April 13 until noon on April 14 at Ocoee
High School.
Relay For Life is the ACS's version of an athletic relay but with a new
twist. This is a family-oriented event, where participants enjoy the cama-
raderie of a team and also raise funds to support the activities of ACS.
Participants camp out at the relay site, and when they are not taking their
turn walking, they take part in fun activities and enjoy local entertainment.
Teams from companies, churches, organizations, hospitals and schools
collect donations and can win individual and team prizes for their efforts.
"Relay For Life brings the progress against cancer to the forefront," said
Sheila Jackson, event chair. "Many participants are our family, friends and
neighbors who have dealt with cancer themselves. Their involvement is proof
of the progress that has been made not only reducing death rates but also
in the quality of life following cancer treatment. The funds raised enable
us to continue our investment in the fight against cancer through research,
education, advocacy and patient services."
The money raised goes directly to the ACS's lifesaving programs.
For information about forming a team or getting involved in Relay For
Life, call 407-843-8680.

Local teaching pro named LPGA's

Southeast Section Teacher of the Year


By Kathy Aber

Local LPGA teaching professional
Dr. Jean Harris recently received the
Southeast Section Teacher of the
Year Award from the Ladies Pro-
fessional Golf Association (LPGA)
Teaching and Club Professional
membership.
SThe LPGA Teacher of the Year
Award presented by Etonic was es-
tablished in 1958 and is presented
to the female teaching professional
who best exemplifies her profession
during the year.
"I like to play golf but I love
teaching," said Harris during an in-
terview last week. "When I see my
students improve, it's the greatest
feeling for me."
SHarris is a Floridian and grew up
in Hollywood. She attended the Uni-
versity of Georgia, where she played
college golf, and later earned a doc-
torate in education. She taught high
school and at a small liberal arts col-
lege for 26 years before retiring in
2000.
She returned to Florida and start-
ed teaching golf part-time and now
has made it her full-time career.
"It puts together my two loves -
golf and teaching," said Harris.
"'I like to say I teach people golf
not golf to people."
Sectional Teacher of the Year
award winners are selected from
each of the T&CP's five regions -
Central, Midwest, Northeast, South-
east and West. The Southeast is the
largest region with more than 300
members from the states of Geor-
ga, Florida, South Carolina and
North Carolina.

the United States.
The award recognizes Harris for
her ability to teach students of all

During her teaching career, she
has developed programs for busi-
nesswomen, juniors, college stu-
dents and older adults. In addition,
she specializes in golf instruction
for individuals with physical limi-
tations.
Harris has traveled the nation on
behalf of the LPGA, educating its
members on proper teaching meth-
ods, especially for older adults and
students with specialized needs.
She has served the Southeast Sec-
tion of the LPGA in many capaci-
ties, including as a national evalua-
tor of teachers, treasurer of the
Southeast Section and recently was
elected vice president of the section.
Harris is currently a professor at
the Professional Golfers Career Col-
lege, located at Orange County Na-
tional Golf Center in Winter Gar-
den, and also teaches golf lessons at
Windermere Golf Center and
Stoneybrook West Golf Club.

Golf tip of the Month: Visualize the speed


By Jon Decker,
Grand Cypress Academy of Golf,
head instructor

Some of my fondest memories as
a-teenager were of playing golf in
North Carolina in the regular "gang
some" each weekend at the Black
Mountain Golf Course. Each morn-
ing we would tee it up, play 18 holes
and then go out again for more fun in
what was commonly known as "the
bloody nine." The "bloody nine" is
what most people refer to as a scram-
ble or "captain's choice." We would
choose captains, divide into teams
anid head back out onto the course.
Like most scrambles, it came down
to which team made the most putts.
I learned a lot about putting while
playing in those games. As a cap-
tain, I always tried to pick partners
who putted with similar speeds to
mine. I prefer to die my putts toward
the center of the cup, like a basket-
ball player swishing a basket. Some
players like to charge their putts. If
paired with an aggressive putter, I
would have them putt first to show me
the line and then I would adjust the
line to my speed. By watching oth-
er people putt, I learned a very crit-
ical skill in putting - visualization.
Many students struggle with visu-
4lization or have the inability to see
the break. A great way to learn vi-
sualization in putting is to learn how
to identify the breaking point. The
breaking point is the point where the
ball stops rolling straight and starts
rolling downhill.
- Every putt will at some time roll
straight, then as it loses speed, grav-
ity takes over and the putt starts
rollingg downhill. For a putt that is
downhill, fast or has a severe break,
the breaking point will be closer to
the ball. For uphill putts, slower
greens or straighter putts, the break-
ing point will be closer to the hole.
Phil Rodgers was the first person
to help me understand the impor-
tance of the breaking point in putting.
In the bloody nine, I saw the break-
ing point after watching three other
people putt. The drill Rodgers taught
me illustrates what I was seeing in
the bloody nine and can now pass on
to my students.
First, find a severe breaking putt on
the practice green. Go anywhere
from 10-20 feet from the hole and
mark that spot with a tee or Coin.
Second, roll several balls one at a
time toward the hole trying to make
it. This makes it easier to see the
overall break in the green.
S Third, walk half way between the
hole and the tee on the ground and
place two more tees about 8 inches
apart in the general area of where the
break is occurring. Finally, place the
ball beside the single tee (it is im-
portant to always start from the same
spot) and start trying to putt through
the two tees with the goal of trying
to make the putt.
SAdjust the two tees as needed if
your putts are missing too high or
too low. Learning how to adjust the
tees based on your green speed and


The 2nd-place winners in the Christmas golf scramble at WOCC were (I-r) Karen Boylan, Ellen Harper and
Virginia Borchert with a score of 79.


This illustration shows a drill on how to practice finding the breaking point
on a putt.


slope in the green takes some prac-
tice. The key to the drill is getting
the ball to roll through the tees at
the proper speed.
Charging the ball through the
tees leads to a high miss and a slow
putt through the tees leads to a low
miss. Remember, if the green speed
and slope are very severe, the two
tees may need to be moved closer


to the ball. With some practice it
will be like three other players
putting in front of you in the bloody
nine.
I am interested in your feedback.

Windermere Elementary had a jungle theme for its annual Book Fair this year, sponsored by the PTA in the
new media center. There was a large variety of books for all ages, as well as science experiment kits,
scrapbooking kits, GameCube games and other fun activities. The fair was combined with an open house,
where parents could visit the special areas that students attend, which include art, music, computer, Span-
ish, science lab and physical education. Pictured are Ann Kraemer and Paula Thompson, committee chairs
for the Book Fair.

Third-grade students at Dillard Street Elementary enjoy their new traverse-climbing wall during Mr. Maz-
zola's physical education class.


Climbing to new heights
With a $2,000 grant from Lowe's
and one year of hard work, the Dil-
lard Street Elementary physical ed-
ucation teacher, Robert Mazzola,
has completed the construction of a
new traverse-climbing wall, which is
25 feet long and eight feet high. An
exciting addition to the physical ed-
ucation program, the wall features
a castle, knights and several drag-
ons.
Indoor rock climbing is one of the
Most innovative physical activities
today. It is a great way to develop
and enhance physical, social and
emotional skills. Traverse-wall climb-


ing (side to side) is a rewarding and
challenging activity for many stu-
dents, not just natural athletes.
Many physical education teach-
ers who have had experience with
climbing walls agree that climbing
attracts a wide variety of students,
including those who do not normal-
ly like to participate,in physical edu-
cation classes. Climbing is an in-
ventive way to achieve the national
and state fitness and health stan-
dards.
Mazzola would like to thank Rudy
Zubricky, the West Orange High
shop teacher, and Andrea De Lucia,
the DSES physical education aide,


for helping to'make this wall possi-
ble for the students. Traverse-wall
climbing will be an activity DSES stu-
dents will enjoy for a long time.
Report cards
The end of the second marking
period was Friday, Dec. 15. Student
report cards were mailed home dur-
ing the winter break. Contact the

A Comment & Study of the Scriptures Remembering George Gano



Be still, and know that I am God...

- Psalm 46:10


(Good words to heed after such a busy time, and a good place to start as
we look towards another year. This moment might be an opportunity to put
the paper down, find a place where you can be still... breathe deeply and
enjoy the presence of the Lord.)
