School Board
By Michael Laval

Winter Garden got a glimpse last
week of the School Board's vision for
the West Orange area.
Orange County School Board
Chairman Karen Ardaman addressed
the City Commission at Tanner Hall
last Thursday to set the record straight
and discuss how the public school sys-
tem plans to accommodate Winter
Garden's growing population.
Ardaman first set out to refute the no-
tion that the School Board favored
other areas over Winter Garden when
it came to rezoning and other impor-
tant issues. She referred specifically to

Ocoee celebrates dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
'Awakening the Dream' was the theme of the city of Ocoee's 1 st Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Unity Parade Mon-
day. The parade, which traveled south on Clarke Road to the West Oaks Mall, drew a crowd of thousands,
and officials from Winter Garden, Eatonville, Orlando, Orange County and the NAACP were participants. The
parade was coordinated by the Ocoee Human Relations Diversity Board. For more photos, see 1 B.


Subdivision can move forward in Oakland


- The town and
developer have reached an
agreement for the Oakdale
neighborhood.

By Amy Quesinberry

It took nearly two hours to reach an
agreement on the Oakdale subdivision
last Tuesday, but it appears the Oak-
land Town Commission and develop-
er David Ballinger are finally on the
same page.
Ballinger of Mere Holding Compa-
ny has proposed a 39-home, single-
family development on nearly 30 acres
of land just west of Oakland Pointe at
Vick Avenue. His attorney, Lee Chotis,
was present at the meeting and dis-
cussed each issue that the town had
spelled out in an agreement it drew up
after a Jan. 3 workshop with the two
parties.
The Town Commission is very par-
ticular when approving subdivisions
and is known for its stringent guide-
lines regarding Lake Apopka or con-
struction along its Gateway Corridor.
'Among the final agreements:
* The developer will restore post-de-
velopment wetlands to a natural state
and will utilize a restoration and main-
tenance plan.
* On-site wetlands systems should
be placed in a conservation easement.
Development use of this area should
be restricted by the conservation ease-
ment conveyed by permitting agencies.
* The adjacent county pond shall be
restored to original design standards.
* All lakefront areas shall be restored
consistent with the uniqueness of
species of Lake Apopka.


* In keeping with the town's efforts
to restore and protect Lake Apopka,
there can be one communal boat dock
for subdivision use and homeowners
will have the option of applying for
their own dock at a ratio of one dock for
every two lots.
* A water-wise landscaping approach
- with at least 75 percent drought-tol-
erant or native vegetation varieties used
- is to be incorporated.
* The town, recognizing the intent to
minimize paving but also keeping in
mind the increased impacts to roads,
agreed to the following: to pave Vick
Avenue within the boundaries of the
development, to pave Walker Road
from Briley Avenue to Vick and to en-
hance Vick with dirt from Daniels
Street to the developer's property line.
The developer must also grade and
maintain specified dirt roads during
construction and repair any damages
done to paved roads.
* Walker Road is the designated route
for all construction trucks.
* The town has advised the develop-
er of capacity issues and the impact this
development will have on the town's
water supply. The developer was also
advised that the topography lends itself
to the possibility of flooding and re-
tention problems.
* Construction time limitations are 7
a.m. to 8 p.m. with no work allowed
on Sunday.
* The developer must create a land-
scape easement area between Oakdale
and Oakland Pointe.
* A final Certificate of Occupancy
will not be issued until all elements of
the approved plans, amendments and
regulatory requirements have been cer-
tified as met.
In the end, the commission approved


the subdivision plans subject to the
amendments that were discussed and
recorded by Town Manager Maureen
Rischitelli. This approval supercedes
any conflicting staff recommendation.
Commissioner Mona Phipps voted
against the approval.
In other business, the elected offi-
cials:
* heard a report from Chuck Lippi,
a board-certified master arborist who
conducted a survey of the town's trees.
The town had received a forestry grant
and hired Lippi to do the tree count and
risk assessment. His job was to discover
which trees are the most dangerous so
the town can deal with those first.
Lippi found 24 trees that, in his opin-
ion, should be removed. He also re-
ported that some of the tree pruning be-
ing done is sub-par and the town should
incorporate the national standards into
its code.
In his report, Lippi documented most-
ly live oaks and laurel oaks.
"You have a beautiful town," Lippi
told the commission. "You do have
some spectacular trees here."
Each tree was tagged and numbered,
and residents can go to Oakland Town
Hall and look at Lippi's report, which
details the condition of each tree in
town.
Assured resident Curtis Massey that
more code enforcement issues would
be taken care of by the end of the
month. Massey had appeared before
the commission last month asking for
the town's help in cleaning up the west
side of Oakland.
* tabled until the next meeting a dis-
cussion on the Florida Commission on
Ethics's 2006 guide.
* were notified that the town's vol-
unteer party is Feb. 2.


- The Orlando law firm
Gray Robinson will now
represent the town of
Windermere.

SBy Kathy Aber

In preparing the town's 2006-07 an-
nual budget this summer, the Win-
dermere Town Council decided to re-
view its fees for legal services and, in
October, advertised a Request For Pro-
posal.
After listening to brief presentations-
from four law firms last Tuesday, the
Town Council reached a unanimous
decision quickly, selecting Tom
Wilkes of Gray Robinson to replace
Cliff Shepard of Langston, Hess,
Bolton, Shepard and Augustine as its
town attorney.
Bid packets were also received from
two other firms, Debeaubien, Knight,
Simmons, Mantzaris and Neal and
Doran, Wolfe, Ansay and Kundid.
Prior to the presentations, Town
Manager Cecilia Bernier told the
council all four submittals included
all the technical requirements of the re-
quest but two omitted the submittal
form. The proposals from Gray Robin-
son and Langston, Hess, Bolton, Shep-
ard and Augustine were complete.
The Gray Robinson bid was the
highest. The fee schedule is: $225 per
hour for Wilkes, $225 for Paul Chipok
(assistant town attorney), $175 for as-
sociates Heather Ramos and Sarah
Logan and $75 for Stephanie Cross


(paralegal) with a mileage rate of 48.5
cents per mile. The contract also spec-
ifies fees for copying and faxing.
The bid from Langston, Hess,
Bolton, Shepard and Augustine was
the lowest: a retainer rate of $2,250
for the first 15 hours per month ($150
per hour) with additional hours at $190
for primary attorneys Shepard and D.
Andrew Smith 1I, $150 for secondary
attorneys and $70 per hour for par-
alegals. The firm does not bill for rou-
tine office expenses such as photo-
copies, postage and delivery unless
the costs exceed reasonable expecta-
tions.
Following the presentation, Mayor
Gary Bruhn asked the council if the
members would like to do more ex-
ploratory work before making a de-
cision.
Council Member Bob Sprick, an
Orlando attorney, initiated the motion
to hire Gray Robinson.
In an interview Monday, Sprick said
the council "had a good experience
with Tom [Wilkes] during the lake
lawsuit, even though he wasn't the
lead counsel.
"I was very, impressed with him,
with his demeanor and his knowledge
of the law."
The mayor said the council had
"real confidence in what that firm had
done in the lakefront lawsuits" and
"when we have legal issues they look
to Mr. Sprick."
Before the vote, resident Vera

Final Butler Chain study

finds many problem areas


By Andrew Bailey


The pristine Butler Chain of Lakes
is designated an Outstanding Florida
Water but has shown signs that it is
at risk as growth has continued to sur-
round its 11 lakes.
Nearly 100 people turned out last
week at Windermere Town Hall to
hear Dr. Harvey Harper of Environ-
mental Research and Design Inc. pre-
sent his "draft" report on his study of
the Butler Chain. Orange County's
Environmental Protection Division
commissioned a $250,000 two-year
study on the health of the Butler Chain
of Lakes.
The highly technical presentation
identified sources and suspected
sources of phosphorus and made rec-
ommendations for stemming the pol-
lution. Phosphorus is the cause of al-
gae blooms that can choke a lake, as
it has done with Lake Apopka and
Lake Jesup.
In some cases, the recommenda-
tions were for more investigation.
High phosphorus levels enter several
areas of the chain without a clear
source.


Those areas include the southern
shore of Lake Butler from stormwater
ponds and two spots in Lake Tibet-
Butler are coming from the Bay Hill
area. Golf course ponds receive water
from adjacent neighborhoods, in-
cluding some on the east side of Apop-
ka-Vineland Road.
Another hot spot is in Lake Louise
adjacent to the Isleworth golf course.
Wauseon Bay has higher concen-
trations of phosphorus, and "we sus-
pect" that the cause is from septic
tanks, according to Sergio Duarte, se-
nior environmental specialist with
EPD.
Other areas that were studied in-
cluded stormwater treatment options,
berm and swale requirements, sedi-
ment and erosion control, landscape ac-
tivities and dirt roads.
The report suggests eliminating a
"grandfather" clause that allows res-
idents to clear their entire shoreline.
Even boating activity was exam-
ined. The report recommended that
normal boating activity be restricted to
water depths of 10 feet or more. Boats

Foundation Academy to break ground on new $14-million campus on Jan. 27


- The 49-year-old
Christian school in
Winter Garden will open
middle and high school
classrooms in August at
Tilden Road and County
Road 545.

By Mary Anne Swickerath

Jan. 27 will be a historic day in the
history of Foundation Academy, one
of the oldest private schools in West
Orange County. That is the date the
school will hold an 11 a.m. ground-
breaking celebration for its new $14
million campus that will include a
middle school, a high school, a tech-
nology wing and a gymnasium.
The new 74,000-square-foot facil-
ity, located on 76 acres at Tilden Road
and County Road 545, is scheduled


to open in August for the 2007-08
term. The school's projected enroll-
ment is 800 students, up from the pre-
sent student number of 589 at the orig-
inal campus at 125 E. Plant St. in Win-
ter Garden.
There will be 18 classrooms in the
middle school and high school build-
ing and eight classrooms in the tech-
nology wing, which will house three
computer labs, three science labs and
a media center.
A ministry of the First Baptist
Church of Winter Garden, Founda-
tion Academy, plans to open an ele-
mentary school on the same campus in
2008-09.
Dr. Russell Richards, headmaster,
told The West Orange Times: "The
Lord has blessed Foundation Acade-
my in so many ways. I look forward
to what will happen as He leads us to
the new campus with its challenges

Winter Garden
never big enough," she said.
"I haven't seen it yet where a school
is big enough," Ardaman added. "We
are already building some of the biggest
schools in the state and in the nation."
Commissioner Gerald Jowers ex-
pressed concern that Winter Garden's
sense of unity was hurt by not having
"community schools" as it did when he
was a child.
"We're looking at it from a countywide
viewpoint," Ardaman responded. "We
are a school district that looks out for
every single student."
Following Ardaman's presentation,
the commission agreed to make a
counter offer in its negotiations with Bir-
ket Properties for 3.5 acres of land on
Daniels Road. The city had put the prop-
erty up for sale at an asking price of
$1.07 million, which City Manager
Michael Bollhoefer conceded Thursday
was on the high side.
The only offer received by the city
came from Birket in the amount of
$500,000. The commissioners approved
Bollhoefer's recommendation to make
a counter offer of $750,000.
If the deal eventually goes through,
Birket plans to build an office complex
called Daniels Commerce Center, which


could produce about 500 jobs and
$100,000 in property taxes.
"This would be our first first-class of-
fice space in Winter Garden," Bollhoe-
fer said. "I think it would be the best use

Grand theft auto,
battery charges
On Saturday, Jan. 13, at ap-
proximately 3:29 p.m., an Ocoee
police officer patrolling near the in-
tersection of West Colonial Drive
and Maguire Road was sum-
moned by a passerby. The passer-
by directed the officer's attention
to a vehicle he had been following
because he had seen an employee
of a Winter Garden store chasing
the driver on foot.
He told the officer he believed
the driver had just robbed the
store.
The police gave the following
account of the incident.
The officer contacted dispatch
to request information from Win-
ter Garden police to determine if
a crime had occurred and began
following the vehicle.
Upon checking the tag number
of the vehicle, the officer discov-
ered it had been reported stolen to
the Orlando Police Department.
The officer activated his emer-
gency lights and siren to stop the
vehicle. The driver refused to stop
and began fleeing.
Due to the driver driving in a
reckless manner, the attempt to
stop him was terminated.
The vehicle was seen driving
toward the residences near Sev-
enth Avenue and Moore Road,
east of Maguire Road.
Officers began searching the
area for the vehicle for possible
abandonment and discovered it
parked in the Wesmere Chase sub-
division.
The driver, later identified as
Brian Dexter Mathis, 47, observed
the officers approaching and at-
tempted to flee by striking one
Ocoee police vehicle and driving
toward two other police vehicles.
Mathis drove onto a retention
pond embankment and around the
officers, but Ocoee police offices
again attempted to stop the vehi-
cle due to the aggravated battery
of a law-enforcement officer.
Mathis again began driving
recklessly, and attempts to stop
him were again ceased.
Orange County sheriff's
deputies stopped Mathis at the in-
tersection of Harbor Point and
Catamaran boulevards and took
him into custody.
No Ocoee officers were injured
during the incident, and the po-
lice vehicle struck by Mathis sus-
tained minor damage.
Mathis was charged with ag-
gravated battery on a law-en-
forcement officer with a motor ve-
hicle, two counts of aggravated
assault on a law-enforcement of-
ficer with a motor vehicle, grand
theft auto, fleeing and eluding with
lights and siren activated, reck-
less driving, driving while license
suspended with knowledge and
multiple traffic violations.
An investigation by the Winter
Garden Police Department re-
vealed that the passerby had ob-
served a shoplifting that had oc-
curred. The passerby was not iden-
tified, but his assistance was ap-
preciated by the officers.

Police: Killing in W.G.
was drug-related
Ten days into the new year, a
man has been killed in an appar-


ent drug-related confrontation, say
Winter Garden police. Reginald
Terrance Jones, 27, died Jan. 10 af-
ter being shot in the parking lot at
Westside Townhomes off West
Colonial Drive. Another man,
whose name was not released by
police, was also shot and taken to
Orlando Regional Medical Cen-
ter.
The shooting occurred around
8:30 p.m. and involved several
people who were waiting in the
parking lot, police said.
Anyone with information about
the incident is asked to call Crime-
line at 407-423-8477.

Dispute over cab fare
leads to gunfire
Deputies from the Orange
County Sheriff's Office respond-
ed to a "shots fired" call at the Or-
lando Premium Outlet Mall on
West Vineland Road at approxi-
mately 2:04 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 14.
Once on the scene, responding
deputies determined that no one
had been hit by what is believed to
be two shots fired from what wit-
nesses described as a black male
driving a yellow cab. Orange
County Sheriff's dispatch records
indicate that deputies had a sus-
pect in custody at approximately
2:08 p.m.
After questioning all parties in-
volved and witnesses to the inci-
dent, the deputies determined that
the suspect, Dalbury Nelson of
Orlando, became involved in a
verbal dispute with the cab driv-
er (Kenneth Kitterman of Kissim-
mee) of a Checkered Cab over a
fare.
At some point during the dis-
pute, deputies believe that suspect
Nelson fired at least two shots at
Kitterman. One of the shots may
have struck a nearby store while
the other round may have hit a
tree.
The suspect is still being ques-
tioned; however, at this point in
the investigation deputies antici-
pate charging him with attempt-
ed second-degree murder.

and opportunities. It is an honor to
have a part in this vision, which will
provide a defining moment for His
ministry."
Kathy Smith, director of develop-
ment for Foundation Academy, said
that fund-raising efforts are ongoing as
"we try to raise the funds necessary
to complete this 'God-sized' project."
The public is invited to the Jan. 27
groundbreaking and is welcome to
stay for the homecoming celebration
that will follow. The day will feature
food, inflatables, fellowship, games
and a silent auction, part of the three-
day "Weekend to Roar" homecoming
event that will begin with the home-
coming basketball game and crowning
of the king and queen on Friday night,
Jan. 26.
Much of the construction of the new
buildings will take place off campus
as modular units being built by Roy-
al Concret Concepts Inc. of Palm
Beach. These units will be brought to
the new site on flatbed trucks later this
year and put together there, sort of
like Lego blocks, said Smith.
The current building will be used


by the First Baptist Church of Winter
Garden for additional ministries after
the elementary students move to the
new campus. These ministries have
not been identified at this time, said
Smith.
Foundation Academy was estab-
lished in 1958 with a class of kinder-
gartners and grew from there in the
ensuing 49 years. The first high school
classes were held in 2001, with nine
seniors graduating in 2005, 18 in 2006
and 25 or 26 expected to graduate this
spring.
The school was recently notified by
the Southern Association of Colleges
and Schools (SACS) and the Florida
Council on Accreditation and School
Improvement (CASI) that it is now a
SACS-CASI-accredited school.
Foundation Academy also has re-
ceived full accreditation from the As-
sociation of Christian Schools Inter-
national (ACSI) and is scheduled to
have ajoint review with SACS-CASI
in the 2009-10 academic year.
The school is a member of the
Southern Baptist Association of Chris-
tian Schools.

Carter, a former Orange County Com-
missioner, addressed the council about
her experience when Wilkes was coun-
ty attorney.
"She spoke very strongly in favor of
him," said Sprick.
When asked if he considered cost a
factor in the decision, Sprick said, "In
light of what's coming up [a pending
and expansive downtown development
plan], it's very important to have the
best legal counsel we can get in the fore-
seeable future. It will be money well
spent." -
Sprick said the town would have to
make some budgetary allowances for
legal fees but that could be worked out.
A failure to use the bid process in hir-
ing Shepard as town attorney in March
2004 prompted the council to publish
a RFP for legal services in September.
At that time, Shepard, who was hired
after the resignation of long-time Town
Attorney John Rodgers, said he was
both willing to submit a bid and rene-
gotiate his fees.


His contract had no expiration date
or term limit but specified 20 hours a
month at $150 per hour with addition-
al hours at a blended rate of $200 per
hour.
At the September meeting, both
Town Manager Cecilia Bernier and
Shepard advised the council that state law
does not require using a bid process to
contract for legal services.
Shepard stated that the RFP is a good
process but reminded the council that
it had not used that method when hiring
Gray Robinson to handle the two lake-
front lawsuits settled last year.
The council also voted unanimously
to have Wilkes take over beginning Feb.
1, according to Bernier.
Attorney Smith was assigned to cov-
er a Development Review Board meet-
ing held Tuesday that was scheduled to
include the submission and review of
downtown development plans from
Kevin Azzouz. He was also assigned
to attend a Town Council workshop
scheduled for Jan. 23.


For its first meeting of the year, the
Windermere Rotary Club welcomed
guest speaker Duane Lewis, who spoke
on the topic What is the role of Rotary
in our changing world?
Lewis is the director of Internation-
al Service for Rotary District 6980, a
member of the Matching-grant Com-
mittee and the club's foundation chair-
man.
Lewis said the main objective of Ro-
tary is service in the community, in the
workplace and throughout the world.
This concept has remained a constant
theme for more than 100 years.
The Rotary commitment to service
began in 1907 when the Rotary Club
of Chicago donated a horse to a preach-
er. His horse had died and, because he
was too poor to buy another one, he
was unable to make the rounds of his
churches and visit parishioners.
This firm desire to improve com-
munities and help mankind at the local
and international level has never abat-
ed and still remains the primary goal
of all Rotary clubs.
Lewis said the Rotary Foundation is
an important cog in this long-standing
goal and is the fiscal aspect of Rotary
International. It provides the econom-
ic wherewithal for Rotary clubs world-
wide to engage in countless humani-
tarian projects annually.
Matching grants makes the Rotary
goal of "people helping people" possi-
ble at the international level.

Once reviewed by staff, "We are

nances and try to put together a

Dr. P. Phillips
Performing Arts
Center receives
$1 million donation
Amidst the grandeur of the Grande
Masque Ball on New Year's Eve at the
Gaylord Palms Resort, it was announced
that Harvey Massey and his wife, Car-
ol, have donated $1 million to the Dr. P.
Phillips Orlando Performing Arts Cen-
ter. Jim Pugh, chairman of the arts cen-
ter initiative and honoree at the ball,
made the announcement.
Harvey Massey said: "Carol and I are
proud to be able to support this re-
markable and most important effort. We
believe passionately that a healthy and
vibrant arts community positively im-
pacts the education of our children and
grandchildren, which, in turn, improves
the quality of life in our community for
all residents."
This donation brings the total amount
of charitable contributions raised for the
performing arts center to $46.5 million,
almost halfway to the total goal of rais-
ing $100 million from the private sec-
tor in under three months.
Other gifts include $10 million from
the DeVos family, $7.5 million from
Jim and Alexis Pugh and $1 million each
from Bank of America, the Kessler Col-
lection and Harriett Lake.
The Orlando Performing Arts Cen-
ter, a nonprofit corporation, is respon-
sible to build, design and operate a per-
forming arts center in Orlando Its vi-
sion is to build a destination that ele-
vates the arts, provides the best arts ed-
ucation, generates urban renewal and,
most importantly, is programmed to be
fiscally responsible in construction and
operations.

Lewis gave a PowerPoint presenta-
tion at the Jan. 2 meeting that empha-
sized the continuing worldwide com-
mitment to literacy and education, clean
water, hunger, healthcare and count-
less other projects.
In 1985, Rotary made a historic com-
mitment to immunize all of the world's
children against the crippling disease
polio. The name chosen for the project
was Polio Plus. Working in partnership
with non-governmental organizations
and national governments, Rotary be-
came the largest private-sector con-
tributor to the global eradication cam-
paign. Rotarians mobilized hundreds
of thousands of volunteers for the pro-
ject and immunized more than one bil-
lion children around the world. To date,
Rotary has contributed more than $600
million in U.S. dollars to the cause.
Each year the president of Rotary In-
ternational selects a leadership slogan
for his tenure in office. This year's
choice, Lead the Way, and past slo-
gans, such as Mankind is Our Business,
describe the president's emphasis for
the year.

4A The West Orange Times Thursday, January 18, 2007


Opinion


Tallahassee has made a real mistake with
its new mandate to the state's public high
schools.
The Orange County School Board, at its
regular fleeting last week, received a re-
port on House Bill 7087, passed by the 2006
State Legislature. This bill requires that stu-
dents entering the ninth grade this August
must declare a major of interest.
This major area of interest must be picked
by 13-year-olds out of 422 state-approved
majors, including such unlikely choices as
international business, culinary journalism,
entrepreneurship and global leadership..
Thirteen-year-olds?
Whatever the student chooses as his or
her major during this spring's registration
process will then help dictate the student's
academic schedule.
One can just imagine the scheduling
headache this new law will cause, espe-
cially since the student can change his or
her mind each year and pick another major
that would redesign his or her class load.
School Board Member Jim Martin has
pointed out that this law could also cause
havoc with transfer policies because if the
required classes for a student's major are
not offered by his or her current high school,
the student would have the choice of trans-
ferring to a school that offered them.
"We could have kids transferring all over


the place," he said. "Tallahassee is getting
too involved in our business."
Martin also said many incoming ninth-
graders are not ready to pick a major area
of interest.
"I changed my major three times in col-
lege," he said.
Educators we have talked to are also un-
happy with this mandate, one calling it a
political move and nothing more.
What our high schools need to provide is
a solid comprehensive education so stu-
dents have real choices when they gradu-
ate, not a narrow program that leaves them
with one focus. Students can already choose
electives of their choice, so why force a ma-
jor?
Worse, this new law creates false expec-
tations and misdirects energies.
House Bill 7087 is a big mistake that will
not only cause scheduling and transfer prob-
lems for the already overburdened high
schools, it also puts undue pressure on stu-
dents entering high school to pick one of
these 422 majors before they have had any
experience with high school courses.
Will the mess that will be caused by this
new law be the 2006 State Legislature's
legacy?
We urge the current legislators to relook
at this bill and rescind it before the new
school term.

Letters to the editor


Reader takes exception to Sentinel's angle
on Butler Chain study


Editor:

Orange County commissioned Dr. Harvey Harper
and his firm to do a two-year, in-depth study of what is
causing pollution in the Butler Chain of Lakes. In a
two-hour presentation, Dr. Harper detailed a draft of
his report to Windermere's citizens at a meeting last
week.
I am not a Windermere resident and do not intend to
be involved in any controversy there. I attended the
meeting to see what Dr. Harper had to say about the
effects of septic tanks on lakes, as that is a present hot
topic concerning the Wekiva Parkway and Protection
Act. The State Department of Health is attempting to force
60,000 residents to switch to hi-tech, $15,000 onsite
systems.
Dr. Harper's report was in-depth, naming a number
of factors that needed remedies. However, the Orlan-
do Sentinel blasted out in headlines that "Lakes' Health
Tied to Town's Septic Tanks."' For the first nine para-
graphs of the story, the reporter pounded on the septic


tanks and their contribution to pollution. He then went
on to tie this into a present controversy concerning a
proposed development downtown.
It was not until much later in the story that he named
the other equally polluting factors: stormwater, berms
and swales, sediment/erosion control, lack of vegetation
along shorelines, landscape activities, dirt roads and
boating activities. Dr. Harper's report did not point to
septic tanks as being the lone polluter, as the headlines
would have you believe. Later discussion pointed out
that to remedy septic tanks would not be cost-effective
nor would it cure all the lakes' ills, as the reporter would
have his readers believe.
The mayor said that Windermere already has made
progress in many of the areas mentioned. That was not
reported with equal fervor. The Sentinel's editorial
board blindly follows the attack on septic tanks, and
this article falls right into line.

State's prepaid plan helps fund college later


Editor,

The benefits of a college education are no secret. With
a college degree, young adults have more career choic-
es and the opportunity to provide financial security for
their families. The U.S. Department of Labor reports
that a college graduate can earn, on average, $1 million
more over a lifetime than someone who doesn't go to
college.*
For many Florida families, the question isn't whether
to send their children to college, but how they will afford
to do so. The Florida Prepaid College Board provides a
safe and affordable option: the Florida Prepaid College
Plan. The plan allows families to prepay the cost of a
college education today. The Florida Prepaid College
Plan is a safe and affordable way to save for college.�
In many cases, the savings for a family can be dramatic.
According to Ernst & Young, the board's actuarial con-
sulting firm, when today's newborns enter college in 18
years, the cost of a four-year education at a Florida pub-
lic university (tuition, local fees and dormitory housing)
will be approximately $98,000. With the Prepaid Col-


lege Plan, parents of a newborn today can purchase four
years of tuition, local fees and dormitory housing at a
Florida public university for approximately $30,000, if
made in a lump-sum payment, and save more than
$68,000.
STo lock in current plan prices, enroll by Wednesday,
January 31, 2007. This year, tuition plan prices start at
less than $25 a month for the two-year community col-
lege plan.
Education opens the door to opportunity. The Flori-
da Prepaid College Plan can help families save for col-
lege and prepare their children for the future.

Acupuncture has been available
in West Orange County for sever-
al years now and has steadily
grown in popularity with multiple
practices opening their doors.
Dr. Ragu Nath, MAOM, AP, is
the latest to offer his services. He
recently purchased Sun Acupunc-
ture and renamed the practice Sai
Acupuncture and Herbal Clinic.
The office is located at 871
Vineland Road, Suite B, in Winter
Garden.
Coming from a family rich with
medical tradition, Nath practiced
western medicine from 1979 to
2002 in his native India and the
Middle East. More than a dozen
members of his family are doctors
or dentists, including his wife, a
medical doctor.
Shortly after arriving in the Unit-
ed States in 2002, Nath discovered
acupuncture when he sought treat-
ment for severe back pain. He said
he was amazed at how well it
worked and he soon enrolled in the
Academy of Oriental Medicine at
Austin (Texas). After graduating
early, Nath and his family moved to
Winter Garden for its warm climate
and the opportunity to take over an
existing practice.
While western medicine treats
only the symptoms of an illness,
Nath said, acupuncture and herbal
medicine address its source.
"In my 20 years of [western]
medical practice, patients often
asked why they were suffering
from pain or sickness," he recalled.
"We treat not only the symptoms
but the root cause."
The history of acupuncture and
eastern medicine dates back more
than 2,500 years and is currently
used by about one-fourth of the
world's population. Eastern
medicine attempts to treat the full
range of diseases, acute and chron-
ic, traumatic, infectious and inter-
nal.
The purpose of acupuncture is to
regulate blood flow within the body
by inserting needles at precise acu-
points. Together with herbal

DRESS FOR SUCCESS

Looking good is important when you
want to make a great impression, and
it is also true when a home goes on the
market. When the "For Sale" sign goes
up in front of your home, it should be
"dressed" for the occasion.
A well groomed exterior will win ap-
proval from buyers. Give your home
a thorough inspection, looking at ev-
erything from the landscaping to the
paint. The interior of your home should
be clean and tastefully decorated. Take
care of any minor cosmetic repairs that
are needed, such as cracked plaster or
missing roof tiles. A sparkling kitchen
and shiny bathrooms, clean windows;
and the absence of clutter will help your
home "show well". Keeping your home
looking good at all times is hard work,
especially if you have children and are
packing for a move. The dividends are
impressive, however, because a home
that looks well cared for has an excel-
lent chance of selling quickly for top
dollar.
If you would like to talk further about
buying or selling real estate, please con-
tact Libby Tomyn CRS at Century 21
Professional Group. Call me on my

medicine, treatments are designed
to bring balance and harmony to
the body without any side effects.
Modern western medicine can-
not yet explain how acupuncture
works, but the World Health Or-
ganization recognizes acupunc-
ture's effectiveness for more than
40 common disorders, including
respiratory, gastrointestinal, circu-
latory, urogenital, gynecological,
musculoskeletal, neurological, ear,
nose and throat and more.
Many people have a fear of nee-
dles and, therefore, a fear of
acupuncture. The needles used for
acupuncture, however, are nearly
as thin as a strand of hair and their
insertion is painless.
The experience is nothing like
receiving an injection, said Nath,
and many times the patient will not
even be


aware the needles are in place.
Many people find acupuncture so re-
laxing that they fall asleep during
treatment.
Nath is currently offering special
free sessions for arthritis, weight
loss and quitting smoking.
"I was a smoker for 20 years,"
he said. "I was only able to stop
through receiving these treat-
ments."
The one-week treatment includes
four acupuncture sessions plus pre-
scribed herbal medicines, and will
take away the patient's craving for
nicotine, Nath said.
Sai Acupuncture is open Mon-
day through Friday from 9 a.m. to
5 p.m. and on Saturday by special
appointment.

Boomer Planning 101
By Rick DIBiaslo

Building Your Net Worth
As Boomers get closer to retirement age we are beginning to get serious
about the concept of building our net worth. Like anything else that we have
focused on as a generation, I believe many of us will now become great
savers and embrace financial planning, something that many Boomers
have avoided until now.
Since most Boomers don't have traditional pension plans and are not sure
that Social Security will be around as long as we will, the burden of retire-
ment income will fall on us. We will have to own our retirement; we will
have to achieve a level of financial independence. (My own informal poll of
Boomers comes to the conclusion that we don't like that retirement word
very much, just as we don't want to be called "seniors." I think we'll always
be "Boomers" and many of us will have our own definition of retirement, it
might include working, it might not, so "Financial independence" is a goal
that we can all strive for.)
Just what is this financial independence anyway? My definition says that
you have reached a point where your assets can support your lifestyle. You
have the freedom to.select that lifestyle, as long as you have the assets.
These assets have to throw of income, so that collection of Stones albums
in your attic is not going to do the job until you figure out a way to turn them
into cash.
If your net worth is largely in your house, you can't count that either, un-
less you plan to turn it into rental property. And, if.everything that you can
,use to generate a retirement income is in your 401K or other retirement ac-
count, you need to brush up on the tax consequences of taking income
from them, especially if you plan to retire before the magic age of 59.
In doing pre-retirement planning, we try to get a sense of your current net
worth and then estimate what it will be at your expected retirement age.
(We use very conservative estimates, if you know people who were using
the really high estimates in the dot com days; you know they aren't expect-
ing those unrealistic terms anymore). We try to factor in inflation and taxes,
as best we can and then we step back to see if our projections match your
retirement plans.
One thing that Boomers are experts in is the acquisition of debt. Many of
us can borrow money whenever we want, with seemingly no limit. Knowing
the difference between "good" debt and "bad" debt is crucial in planning for
retirement. I have worked with very few people who have retired success-
fully with mountains of consumer debt. Making hard decisions about paying
off debt, saving for retirement and making sacrifices today, to achieve fi-
nancial independence in the future is the challenge that Boomers are now
undertaking and I'm betting that we do it successfully! If you would like a
complimentary weekly Economic Update via E Mail, call my office or E Mail

Registration opens for Relay For Life teams
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of West Orange is
just around the corner. Register a team now by calling the ACS at
407-843-8680.
This celebration of life brings the West Orange community to-
gether in a unified effort to fight cancer. Former and current cancer
patients, their families, businesses, civic organizations and the pub-
lic 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 en-
joy the camaraderie 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 tak-
ing their turn walking, they take part in fun activities and enjoy lo-
cal 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 fore-
front," said Sheila Jackson, event chair. "Many participants are our
family, friends and neighbors who have dealt with cancer them-
selves. Their involvement is proof of the progress that has been
made not only reducing death rates but also in the quality of life fol-
lowing 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 Re-
lay For Life, call 407-843-8680.

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 hun-
dreds of volunteers in Central Florida
to feed the hungry with local citrus.
Annual Citrus Drive events current-
ly held in Brevard and Orange counties
provide more than 150,000 pounds of
fresh citrus that would otherwise go to
waste.
The Society of St. Andrew is a na-
tionwide, non-profit, faith-based or-
ganization that has a vision for feed-
ing the hungry in America. It is at-
tempting to bridge the gap between the
96 billion pounds of produce wasted
annually in this country and the 36 mil-
lion Americans who are food insecure.
Growers, packers and shippers con-
tact SoSA with surplus unmarketable
produce, and SoSA contacts groups of
volunteers from churches, civic orga-
nizations, Scout troops, schools and
individuals to gather, package and
transport food to agencies that feed the
hungry. These agencies include home-
less shelters, church pantries, food
banks and low-income housing pro-
jects, to name a few.
In 2006, SoSA recovered 1,300,000
pounds of food that would have gone
to waste and delivered it to agencies
statewide.

Registration opens for Relay For Life teams
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of West Orange is
just around the corner. Register a team now by calling the ACS at
407-843-8680.
This celebration of life brings the West Orange community to-
gether in a unified effort to fight cancer. Former and current can-
cer patients, their families, 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 en-
joy the camaraderie 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, organiza-
tions, hospitals and schools collect donations and can win indi-
vidual 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 fam-
ily, 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 in-
vestment in the fight against cancer through research, education, ad-
vocacy and patient services."
The money raised goes directly to the ACS's lifesaving pro-
grams.

lay For Life, call 407-843-8680.

Lady Warriors complete comeback season


The West Orange High varsity girls
soccer team has taken great steps to-
ward improving on last year's 3-17
mark. The Lady Warriors recently
completed their season with an 8-8
record. Among their final games of the
year were big victories over Jones
(14-0) and South Lake (6-2).
West Orange seemed to find its of-
fense this season, said Coach Pete
Abatiello. Many goals came off the
foot of Tara Fadenracht, who finished
with 26 for the season to place third
in the WOHS record books. She also
set a new school record with six goals
in a single game.
Karese Traille helped on many


goals throughout the season, includ-
ing 12 assists during the team's final
three games. Brooke Wildes and
Steph Tamamini also provided strong
play.
The Warrior defense has been
Abatiello's mainstay all season. The
defense, he said, was led by the hard-
hitting Danielle Axtell, Lauren Shea
and Renar Bondsfield. A pleasant
surprise for West Orange, Abatiello
said, has been the play of freshman
goalkeeper Kara Ettore.
"This Warrior team has struggled
a bit this year but has fought back to
achieve a fine comeback season,"
Abatiello said.

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


The righteous willflourish like a palm tree, they
will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the
house of the Lord, they will still bear fruit in old age,
they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, "The
Lord is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no
wickedness in him."
Psalm 92:12-15

As I think about these words I am so encour-
aged. This is the cry of my heart: to flourish as a
strong, mature tree planted in my Father's house.
I love the picture of deep roots constantly being
nourished by God's Word, of large shady branch-
es bringing refreshment and rest to generations. I
love the picture of strength, steadiness and long
life.

Father, make me like that tree....green and grow-
ing and fresh, throughout my whole life. I look for-
ward to my old age. I never want to stop growing
and learning from You. Make the fruit I bear be
sweet and good and pleasing to You. Please prune
me and shape me and remove from me all that is
dead or dying that I will be ready for any strong
winds You allow to blow in my life; ready for any
attacks or disease.
I know there is no wickedness in You, not only
because Your Word says so but because I have ex-
perienced personally Your amazing love.
I trust You, Father. I know that whatever I en-
counter is what You have allowed.
