19 Ocoee families file lawsuit

against School Board rezoning


- The petition
challenges the recent
rezoning of Ocoee
residents from Ocoee
High to the Apopka
Relief High School.

By Mary Anne Swickerath

Winter Garden attorney James A.
Gustino, who is representing 10 Ocoee
families, filed a petition last Friday
that seeks to invalidate the Orange
County School Board's recent rezon-
ing of Ocoee residents from Ocoee
High to the new Apopka Relief High
School on North Hiawassee Road.
All of the families filing this law-
suit have students who will be affect-
ed by the rezoning plan approved by the
School Board on Jan. 23, and all live
in the northeast section of Ocoee that
includes such areas as Prairie Lakes,
Remmington Oaks, Orchard Park and
Saw Mill subdivisions.
According to the petition, the fam-
ilies are "fundamentally and adverse-
ly affected by the rezoning ruling"
since they are being removed from
their community and "will be com-


pelled to attend an Orange County high
school that no other high school-aged
children of Ocoee residents attend."
The petition goes on: "The preser-
vations of 'community' schools has
been and continues to be an important
policy of the School Board. The re-
zoning ruling turns that further well-en-
grained and eminently reasonable pol-
icy on its head."
Another weakness of the rezoning
plan, according to the petition, is that
the feeder-school pattern is disrupted
because it would take students from
Ocoee Middle and send them to the
new high school instead of Ocoee
High, which is a "historical" feeder-
school pattern.
The petition also alleges that the re-
zoning process was flawed, with par-
ents unable to get accurate informa-
tion from the School Board's pupil-
assignment staff, and that "the affect-
ed public's input was limited to that
given at a single meeting... at which
only a small fraction of interested per-
sons were able to participate."
. In addition, the petition includes the
complaintthat "none of the proposed
rezoning proposals generated by Pupil
Assignment staff considered a reloca-
tion of students from Oc6ee High


School to West Orange High School -
despite the fact that numerous students
residing in Winter Garden would have
preferred to be returned to their com-
munity high school (West Orange
High School), and a relocation of these
Winter Garden students would have
better advanced the.,. School. Board's
policies of preserving school feeder
patterns and 'community schools.' "
Gustino told The West Orange
Times Monday that the State of Flori-
da Division of Administration Hear-
ings in Tallahassee will review this
petition to make sure it complies with
state statues before a hearing on the
suit is scheduled.
"This is a very expedited process,"
he said, explaining that a hearing date
could be set within 30 days and a tri-
al date set within 90 days.
Gustino said a decision will be ren-
dered before the opening of the 2007-
08 school year.
"We want these kids from Ocoee to
continue to go to Ocoee High School,"
he said.
Gustino successfully represented
parents from the Gotha area in a sim-
ilar lawsuit against the School Board
a couple of years ago concerning a re-
zoning plan for Olympia High School.

Winter Garden Fire Department En-
gineer Ken Moisan is back on his shift
after taking about four months off.
There was good reason for his ab-

While in Iraq, Moisan serves as a
station captain for the Ali Base Fire
Department, which consists of 40 fire-
fighters and provides fire and emer-
gency medical services to 8,000 coali-
tion members on site.
The Winter Garden department held
a welcome-home luncheon last Thurs-
day to greet Moisan upon his return.

- The School Board
expects as many as 49
Orange County schools to
drop a letter grade.

By Michael Laval

As students throughout Orange
County began their first round of
FCAT testing this week, School Board
officials are preparing for a drop in
school grades issued by the state.
Although no changes have been
made to the FCAT, which the state
Department of Education uses to de-
termine school grades, lower marks
are expected due to adjustments made
to the state's calculations.
"We can control the fact that stu-
dents will continue to improve, but we
cannot control how the state evaluates
schools," Orange County Public
Schools Superintendent Ron Blocker
said at a press conference Monday.
School grades, he added, are ex-
pected to drop across the board
throughout Florida. In Orange Coun-
ty, as many as 49 schools are project-
ed to drop a grade.
The state will add two new compo-
nents to its school grading system this
spring - the science portion of the
FCAT will now be factored in, and the
math learning gains of students who
score in a school's lowest 25 percent
will be taken into account.
Half of a school grade is determined
by student performance on the FCAT.
In years past, that included scores on
reading, math and writing sections of
the test. The science FCAT, which stu-
dents have been taking since 2003, will
be counted toward school grades for
the first time this year.
The other half of a school grade


comes from annual learning gains,
which measures the level of improve-
ment among students who score in the
lowest 25 percent. Only gains made
in reading had been counted in the past,
but now math has been included.
With the inclusion of the science
FCAT into the formula, the grading
scale will rise by 115 points. For the
2005-06 school year, 410 points were
needed to achieve an A. This year, at
least 525 points are needed for a top
mark.
School Board officials project that in
many cases, points earned from the
science FCAT won't make up the 115
points added to the grading scale.
That's largely due to the fact that many
Orange County students have not test-
ed well in recent years on the science
FCAT.
Only 35 percent of Orange County
students who took last year's science
FCAT earned proficient scores.
The school district, Blocker said, is
preparing for the change by requiring
science coaches or a lead science
teacher in elementary schools, requir-
ing all high school freshmen, sopho-
mores and juniors to take science class-
es and adding an extra 10-lab package
in high school to cover all major stan-
dards of science.
A lot of money is at stake when
school grades are handed out. "A"
schools receive bonuses of $100 per
student.
Despite the expected blow to school
grades, Blocker said he is optimistic
that Orange County students will con-
tinue to improve their test scores.
"When you look at our track record,
the trending data has always been up-
ward," Blocker said. "We think we're
going to do well and continue to im-
prove."

FOLA still opposing

lake water, withdrawal

By Amy Quesinberry

FOLA continues to fight several municipalities' requests to with-
draw millions of gallons of water daily from Lake Apopka.
At Friends of Lake Apopka's regular monthly meeting last week,
officials heard from representatives of the St. Johns River Water Man-
agement District, who were on hand to answer FOLA's questions.
Minneola has applied a second time for a permit to pull 20 million
gallons a day from the lake. Apopka is asking for 5 million gallons
daily to be drawn from a canal that leads to the lake. The reason: to pro-
vide reclaimed water for irrigation.
Mona Phipps, an Oakland Town Commissioner and president of
FOLA, told The WestOrange Times on Monday: "It's not real good news
for people who live around the lake....It's just all too scary to me.
They're just opening a door at a time when everyone needs water.
"If you're allowing homes to be built and you know, for a fact, that
you don't have water, then what are you doing? Why aren't you re-eval-
uating this?" Phipps said.
David Walker is in charge of the new restoration process for Lake
Apopka. Jim Hollingshead is in charge of the Consumptive Use Per-
mit request from Apopka. Both SJRWMD officials gave a presentation
and answered questions last week.
In addition to the water withdrawal issue, FOLA received updates
on the long-term restoration plan for the lake and on the Lake County
Water Authority's request for a a NuRF project. The proposal is for a
nutrigent-reduction facility (for alum treatment) to be built on the CC
Ranch property on the Beauclair Canal, according to Phipps.
"It's probably one of the prettiest pieces of property up there, and
they're going to destroy it," she said.: According to Phipps, the land
was purchased in 1991 with taxpayer dollars.

In her final days, nearly two dozen

the room also contained multiple

The Fogle house was a. second

and Fogle was very much like a sec-

taining the dye pack was either
dropped or detonated in the parking
lot in front of the bank and left there.

Opinion


By Alex Sink
Florida's chief financial officer

:As we gather our W-2s and 1099s and pre- -
pare to file our taxes, we should all take some
time to learn about the Earned Income Tax
Credit (EITC).
An estimated 350,000 working Floridians
may be eligible for the tax credit, and 20 per-
cent or more of those might not know they
could get back possibly thousands of dollars.
' This could be one of your employees, a
neighbor or a member of your church who
might desperately need the relief, and you
could make a difference. You would also be
helping Florida's economy because this is tax-
payers' money; it doesn't belong to the gov-
ernment.
The EITC applies to taxpayers whose in-
comes are below $38,348 for families with two
or more children, $34,001 for individuals with
one child and $14,120 for individuals who have
no children. Consumers can visit
http://www.irs.gov/ and search "Earned In-
come Tax Credit" to find out more and deter-
mine if they qualify.
To qualify, taxpayers must meet certain re-
quirements and must file a tax return, even if
they did not earn enough money to be obli-
gated to file a tax return. There are many free
tax preparation sites throughout Florida, and you


can find one by calling 800-829-1040.
In addition to filing an EITC claim for the
most recent tax year, eligible Floridians can
go back three years to claim prior refunds.
And, the IRS says that in most cases EITC pay-
ments will not be used to determine eligibili-
ty for most assistance programs, including
Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
and food stamps.
We all should be doing anything we can to
help put money back in the hands of eligible,
hard-working taxpayers so they can take ad-
vantage of Florida's boundless opportunities.
This is money that could be used to pay down
debt, make a down payment on a home or open
a college fund - or shop at your business.
Feb. 1, 2007, has been designated as Earned
Income Tax Credit Awareness Day in Flori-
da. Let's all learn more about this valuable
program and help our neighbors and our state
thrive and grow.
As a statewide electedofficer of the Florida
Cabinet, Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink
oversees the Department of Financial Services,
a multi-division state agency responsible for
management of state funds and unclaimed
property, assisting consumers who request in-
formation and help related to financial ser-
vices and investigating financial fraud.
CFO Sink also serves as the state fire mar-
shal.

Boomer Planning 101
By Rick DiBiasio
' CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER PRACTITIONER

Boomer Women and Financial Survival

Boomers are the first generation to approach their retirement years without the safe-
ty net of company pensions and guaranteed lifetime incomes, but for many women in
the Baby Boom generation, financial survival is going to be especially challenging. The
cutbacks in corporate pension plans and the frequency Boomers change careers are fac-
tors that potentially affect all Boomers when it comes to maintaining their retirement
lifestyle but studies have shown that women are more susceptible to factors that place
their retirement at risk.
Record numbers of women are heading toward later life without a partner's backup
savings and income thanks to divorce and singlehood. Government data suggests that
unmarried women have higher poverty rates than unmarried men and much higher
poverty rates than married women. Although Baby Boom women have more education
and work skills than their Moms, many quit jobs or worked part time to care for children
or ailing relatives. Life decisions such as these are often unavoidable, often rewarding
'and sometimes under appreciated by family members. Almost without exception, these
lost years in a career slash retirement benefits. "'
At age 65 women are expected to live three years longer than men, magnifying the
chance that a woman might outlive her savings or incur higher medical costs without the
help of her spouse. In addition to these factors women overall still earn less than men
and have less in the way of retirement benefits for old age.
After over 23 years in the financial planning profession; I can tell you that the wom-
en who are better stewards of their money or the couples who work together to plan for
both spouses financial survival are the ones who avoid financial disaster. The funda-
mentals of financial planning apply to everyone, don't live beyond your means, make
good investment decisions, don't take on too much risk and keep your income tax bill as
low as you legally can. But, single people, non-traditional couples and widows and wid-
owers have special needs that good planning can buttress. The sooner you start, the bet-
ter off you will be.
The old country song, "It's Cheaper to Keep Her" might be a funny line, but the fact
is that Women in Transition have special needs when it comes to financial planning and
often end up on the worse end of the financial side of transitions. A good financial plan
before a transition is ideal but often I meet new clients when they have already had a
major life event happen and there is still plenty that can be done. From deciding what in-
vestments to keep, how to get a monthly income from life insurance proceeds and di-
vorce settlements and how to plan for future generations are all important parts of the
many services we provide our clients. If you have recently gone through a transition or
know someone who has, have them call me, Ill be happy to offer a complimentary con-
sultation to help get you on the right track.
If you would like a complimentary weekly Economic Update via E Mail, call my office

Eagle Scout builds resting spot for horses
To earn his Eagle Scout badge, Larry Weimer II of Boy Scout Troop 120 in Winter Garden built a horse pad-
dock at Lake Louisa State Park in Clermont. He chose to build the paddock after discovering there weren't
enough places for the horses to be safely hitched when the weather changed or the riders chose to camp
overnight. After discussing the project with his Scoutmaster, Mike Oliver, Weimer raised the funds needed
to purchase the materials and coordinated the volunteers, and, within 2 days, Lake Louisa had a new pad-
dock for riders and their horses. Weimer joined Boy Scouts as a Cub Scout and achieved the rank of Ea-
gle Scout last October. Troop 120 is chartered by New Horizons Christian Church.

Windermere


Garden Club to meet
Feb. 8 at Town Hall
The Windermere Garden Club will
hold its next general meeting at 9:30
a.m. this Thursday, Feb. 8, at Town
Hall. The meeting begins with coffee,
followed by the program and meeting
at 10 a.m. The featured speaker is Ma-
gali Groves of Color Zone Tropicals
on the topic bromeliads. The hostess-
es are Diane Lambert, Peggy Collins
and Joyce Fischer.
For more information on member-
ship, call Tanya Chesire at 407-905-
9963.


To provide a warm, friendly atmosphere for members and guests, the Rotary Club of Windermere estab-
lished a custom of greeters beginning with its founding in 1969. Greeters stand under the covered Town
Hall entryway rain or shine and are a mix of older and newer members. Pictured are Jan. 23rd greeters (I-
r) Ned Kelly, past president Maxine Black, Helen Arvin, Darrell Gardner and Manny Axelrod. Hot coffee was
the beverage of choice on this particularly chilly morning.

Rotary Club welcomes speaker on Pilates


: The Rotary Club of Windermere
welcomed guest speaker Sara Kosin-
ski, an instructor with Zero Gravity
Fitness, to its meeting Jan. 23. She
spoke to club members about exer-
cise and demonstrated a program
called Pilates. She practices and in-
structs in the Pilates method which is
named for its inventor Joseph Pilates.
He was a German self-defense in-
structor for the British at Scotland
Yard. The exercise practice is not a
recent fad since it has been around
since World War I.
At the onset of the war, Pilates was
put in an enemy alien camp. It was
there that he refined his ideas for the
method that was named for him by
rigging a spring system to hospital
beds in an effort to rehabilitate im-
mobile patients.
Today the system still incorporates
a spring system that differentiates it
from more common forms of weight
training.
Kosinski and her helper Wesley
demonstrated several of the more than
100 exercises that can be performed
with the spring-loaded machine called
the "reformer." The apparatus does
not look as menacing as its name
sounds. Kosinski explained that Pi-
lates has been shown to increase flex-
ibility in the golf swing. This infor-

Windermere Prep celebrates its diversity


Windermere Preparatory School re-
cently celebrated the diversity of its stu-
dents by holding its first school-wide Mul-
ticultural Festival.
School-wide families were invited to-
share artifacts, materials and foods from
their countries of origin. In addition, stu-
dent and professional international en-
tertainment was provided.
'.The festival was the end result of what
began as a curriculum course I took last
summer and a 'Teaching Tolerance' grant
I received to purchase multicultural edu-
cation materials and resources," said
Cathy Novokowsky, a WPS fourth-grade
teacher who coordinated the event. "I
completed this project as an attempt to
create change through a school-wide pro-
ject which would enhance student learn-
ing."
Windermere Prep teachers received
professional development from No-
vokowsky on the topic, and the materials
were shared through the school's Knowl-
edge Center. In turn, students in every
grade level throughout the school com-
pleted multicultural units. From learning
about winter holidays around the world in
the in the first grade to designing menus
from different countries in fifth grade, the
entire student body learned about many
different countries and cultures.
"The Multicultural Festival conclud-
ed the unit studies by celebrating the di-
versity of our own school," said No-
vokowsky. Students were given pass-
ports, and as they toured each of the tables
representing 18 different countries their
passports were stamped. From eating
stuffed grape leaves in Greece and sam-
pling coffee in Colombia to getting hen-


na body decorations in Pakistan, WPS
students toured the different countries and
earned a free homework pass if they man-
aged to visit them all.
There was much to learn. The Egyptian
table split its display in half, dividing it be-
tween ancient or historic times and pre-
sent-day Egypt. At the Canadian table
visitors ate French fries with gravy and
took turns shooting a hockey puck with
a hockey stick.
The various tables formed the perime-,
ter around a stage area, where different'
international entertainment performed.
These included Guyanese instrumental
and dance performances, Irish dancers
and a bagpipe player.

Valentine's Day - wine, chocolate and
love songs performed by one of Italy's
most accomplished young tenors."
International media outlets have dubbed

Pavarotti." Vittorio's debut CD was one
of the highest classical chart debuts ever
for a new artist in the United Kingdom,
landing him in the top 10 alongside the
likes of Andrea Bocelli and turning him into
an international heartthrob.
Born in Rome, but raised near Florence,
Vittorio has honed a reputation as one of
the most talented tenors of his generation.
His self-titled, Decca debut CD, Vitto-


rio, was released in the fall to much crit-
ical praise.
The artist was featured in USA Today
as a possible heir to Pavarotti's throne.
His CD showcases powerful love songs
with a classical flair, including a special
guest appearance by Nicole Scherzinger
of the Pussycat Dolls. The tenor also daz-
zled American audiences with his very
own PBS Great Performances television
special entitled Vittorio: Dreams of Rome,
which has received multiple airings on
the network.
On Friday, Feb. 9, Vittorio will per-
form a set of select love songs and bal-
lads at Portofino Bay Hotel's "Harbor
Nights Romantico" event. It will feature
more than a dozen wines and sparkling
wines, gourmet food samples, decadent
chocolates and hand-rolled cigars. The
event will take place under the twinkling
lights of the hotel's Harbor Piazza. Tick-
ets are $35 and are available by calling
407-503-1407.
Portofino Bay Hotel is located at Uni-'
versal Orlando.

Officer of the Quarter for the fourth
quarter of 2006. His certificate con-
gratulated him for consistently
demonstrating an ability to effectively
communicate with citizens and fel-

community-oriented manner, showing
compassion and good judgment."
He has an excellent attendance
record and has "an upbeat demeanor
befitting the position of police offi-

fenses."

secutive game. After honoring seniors
Chris Warren, Taylor Larson, Aeramis

reer-high 16 points. Harris scored 7
points and pulled down 5 rebounds.

points, Warren poured in 19 points
and 9 assists, Watkins finished with
13 points and 8 rebounds and Mak-

ter, to lead the Panthers to an 88-82
overtime victory over Edgewater ear-
lier last week.
DP overcame a 12-point deficit in


the final period to force overtime

The victory for No. 13 Dr. Philips
marked its eighth straight and kept the
Panthers undefeated for 2007.
Larson came up big with 9 points,
8 rebounds, 4 steals and 3 assists.
Willis had 17 points and 5 rebounds,
while Watkins racked up 10 points, 7
rebounds and 4 steals.

at DPHS.
The Panther junior varsity boys
basketball team fell to Edgewater 52-
42 last week. Sydney Ware scored 14
and Alex Duenas added 10 points. The
J.V. Panthers bounced back with a 68-
31 victory over Jones. Ware and
Patrick Ryan scored 17 points each to
help the team improve to 11-5 on the
season.
The DP freshman boys basketball
team fought a close game vs. Edge-
water but fell 38-36. Patrick

my Massillon scored 8 points apiece
and Greg Slones pitched in 7 points.
The freshman boys also defeated
Jones 40-34 last week. Dominguez

in the fourth quarter and Adams led

Pampling to defend title at Bay Hill in March


No player ever forgets his first vic-
tory on the PGA Tour, but Australian
Rod Pampling admits that his second
career win, which came at last year's
Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay
Hill, carries with it a certain cache
that puts it in a different class and on
another level. No doubt it's even
more of a feather in his cap now that
he's going to be the first defending
champion of the event carrying the
name of the host at his Bay Hill Club.
The Arnold Palmer Invitational
presented by MasterCard, scheduled
for March 12-18 and offering a $5.5
million purse, was renamed from the
Bay Hill Invitational last spring in
honor of the legendary golfer who
has 62 PGA Tour titles, including
seven major championships.
"That's one of the trophies you
want to win," said Pampling, who a
year ago edged England's Greg
Owen by one stroke to become just the
second international player to win
Palmer's tournament.
"Obviously, the majors are No. 1,
but I think any of the tournaments
that have legends with their names
on them, they're a very close second
in line. To win one ever is fantastic,
and to have Arnold put the jacket on
and give you the big sword.. .that was
great. It's an honor for sure.
"It doesn't matter what tournament
you win you're always going to feel
eager to go back and defend," said
Pampling, a native of Queensland.
"But being Arnold's event, it'% just
that much more of something you
want to do, and I'm looking forward
to going to Bay Hill and getting those
good feelings again."
Pampling, 37, shot a closing even-
par 72 for a 14-under 274 total, but it
was an unexpected struggle after the
Flower Mound, Texas, resident be-
gan the final day with a four-stroke
lead over Owen, Northern Ireland's
Darren Clarke and American Lucas
Glover.
Owen actually nosed ahead of
Pampling by shooting six under par
through 16 holes but disaster struck
at the difficult par-3 17th, where
Pampling bogeyed, but Owen dou-
ble-bogeyed after a three-putt from
2.5,feet, which left the two men tied
going to the famed par-4 home hole.
Pampling emerged with the title by
safely converting a routine two-putt
par while .Owen bogeyed from the
back bunker, missing a 13-foot putt
that would have forced a playoff.
"Things just went my way and I
turned out to be No. 1 at the end of the
week" said Pampling, who credits a
good week with a driver for setting up
his success at Bay Hill.
"Last year I hit a lot of fairways
and drove it really well," said the Bay
Hill champion, who hit 66 percent of
his fairways, but, more importantly,

First Tee introduces golf instruction program for OCPS PE teachers


Educators from The First Tee National
School Program gave presentation for
Orange County Public Schools physical
education teachers on how to introduce
theii students to the game of golf during
regular gym classes.
The four-hour training session took
place at Robinswood Middle School,
and each participating school received
a set of modified golf equipment spe-
cially designed for safely instructing chil-
dren either in a gymnasium or on an out-
door playing field.
"The goal is to present the game of
golf to the students at a young age the
same way sports like basketball, base-
ball, football and soccer are presented,"
said Scott Wellington, tournament di-
rector of the Arnold Palmer Invitation-
al, which is helping finance the program


along with the PGA Tour.
"We are hoping the program will build
participation among the children of Or-
lando, the next generation of fans for the
Arnold Palmer Invitational and the PGA
Tour."
Fifty elementary schools will receive
the program over the next two years with
more than 20,000 elementary students
participating.
The First Tee National School Pro-
gram is an entry-level golf curriculum
designed to be part of elementary school
physical education programs. Taught by
physical education teachers and based
on national physical education standards,
the National School Program is a safe, fun
and effective way to introduce school
children to the basics in golf skills, eti-
quette and play. The program also in-


eludes the element of character educa1
tion through the inclusion of The First
Tee Nine Core Values (honesty, integrity
sportsmanship, respect, confidence, re6
sponsibility, perseverance, courtesy an4
judgment). 4
"Through the National School Pro,
gram we are able to expose a wide rang4
of students to golf and its inherent values."
said Joe Louis Barrow Jr., executive di-
rector of Thd First Tee program. "As we
expand each year to schools across th4
country, more and more children will
learn this valuable life sport and have
the choice to make it a part of their lives.'
So far, the National School Prograrn
has introduced golf to some 490,000 chill
dren in 1,100 schools across the nation.

Windermere Country Club plans 5th annual charity golf event'


Last March; Rod Pampling scored his 2nd PGA Tour win in the 'abso-
lute' final round of the Bay Hill Invitational - this year the tournament
changes its name to the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Pampling took
home the $990,00 winner's check after West Orange County resident
Greg Owen rushed - and missed - his 2nd putt on hole 17.


reached nearly three-fourths of his
greens in regulation (73.6 percent)
and ranked second for the week in
putting. "You can play great, but if
you're missing fairways it's a really
difficult golf course. The key was
shaping my tee shots really well to
fit the holes. And the whole golf
course, I like the way it sets up. Those
are the courses that you want to play:
courses that look good to your eye,
and that's one of them."
It's no surprise that Pampling is a
fan of the Palmer style of golf course
architecture.
"[Bay Hill] is a golf course you got
to shape your way around it; it's not
the typical new style where it's all
straight holes," he said. "You've got
to shape it right-to-left or left-to-right.
That's what we kind of lack a little bit
of these days. You have to really
work your way around the golf
course, and I like that a lot. You get
out on the other courses, and you just
get into the routine of standing up
and hitting the ball as hard as you


can. You can't do that here."-
Pampling joins South African star

eign-born champions in the tourna-

Students in Mrs. Bellochi's 5th-grade class at Citrus Elementary participated this year in the Stock Market
Game sponsored by the Florida Council on Economic Education and 'The Orlando Sentinel.' The students
were divided into teams and spent each week researching companies and their performance on the stock
market, using a fictional $100,000 to build their portfolios. Pictured are Michele Dill, Alyssa Alexander, Erin
Cooper, Francisco Ibarra, Jordan Vereen and Kristelle Calderon. Their team came in 2nd in the region out
of more than 100 teams and placed 6th in the state out of more than 1,600 teams. They ended the game
in December with a portfolio valued at more than $125,000.

Seventy-nine OCPS teachers earn national certification
The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards reported recently that 79 Orange County teach-
ers have earned national certification, the profession's highest credential. Certification by NBPTS is recog-
nized at both the state and federal level as a strong indicator of teacher quality.
Orange County now has 532 National Board-Certified Teachers.
"To become a National Board-Certified Teacher is no easy task," said Superintendent Ronald Blocker.
"These hard-working professionals have made many sacrifices to earn this prestigious recognition. This is
another excellent example of our efforts to make Orange County Public Schools the best school district in the
nation."
Certification is achieved through rigorous performance-based assessment that takes anywhere from one to
three years to complete. Teachers who earn the certification are eligible for a bonus equivalent to 10 percent
of the average teacher salary in Florida and can earn an additional bonus by serving as mentors for other
teachers.

The West Orange High Thespians earned 3 top honors at district competition.


Windermere Elementary teachers and staff are ready to enter the softball field to play a game of kickball

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


"A new commandlgive you: love one another. Aslhave
loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will
know that you are My disciples, ifyou love one another."
John 13:34-35

A few years ago my daughter was working on a pro-
ject for her English class, in which she had to make a
scrapbook illustrating different parts of speech. I re-
member overhearing her tell the friend she was working
with, "Yes, love is a feeling, but it's really a verb." I love
that! Love is a verb, an ACTION verb.
In His Word, Jesus commands believers to love one an-
other. We are not given a choice; we are to obey. To be
effective we must be creative, thoughtful and intention-
al in actively loving the people God has placed in our
lives. We can do that in so many ways...with words and
time spent together....by helping someone with a task...by
listening... sometimes a note or a hug.

NAZARENE


The verse also says that we should love each other as
He loved us. No matter who we are there is nothing more
important than to love and be loved, and there is no end
to the ways LOVE can be expressed as long as we are think-
ing of the need of the recipient. But it takes time. It takes
effort. It takes thought. It takes sacrifice. What better ex-
ample of love and sacrifice than that shown on the cross
by Jesus. He thought about me; He thought about you as
he hung on that cross and paid the penalty for my sin;
for your sin. But the truth is we can't love each other that
way without Him. It's only in the power of the Holy
Spirit that our love can really make a difference,
And here's the challenge... if we do obey and we ac-
tively, intentionally, sacrificially love each other, as Christ
loved us, the rest of the world will notice. People will be
drawn to us and they will want what we have...love,
God's love. And then they can know Him, too!

Dr. Richards honored
Members of the Foundation
Academy School Board, faculty, staff
and friends surprised Dr. Russell
Richards at the recent basketball
homecoming by recognizing his 50
years in education.
With his wife, Harriet (Newingham)
Richards at his side, he received sev-
eral gift certificates presented by
Chris Bogen, athletic director, prior
to the start of the homecoming game.
Dr. Richards started his educa-
tional career in January 1957 as a
teacher and coach at Mio High
School in Mio, Mich. After holding
similar teaching positions in Lake Lin-
den and Olivet, Mich., he was ap-
pointed principal in Eau Claire and
Cass City, also located in Michigan.
Richards and his wife moved to
Lake City in 1986, where he became
the principal of Columbia High
School. In 1991, he was appointed
to be the head master of Warner
Christian Academy in South Daytona.
He moved to Central Florida Chris-
tian Academy in 1998 and finally
came to Foundation Academy in
2003.
This past summer, the couple cel-
ebrated their 48th year of marriage.
They have three children - Michael,
Steven and Laura - and 13 grand-


DR. RUSSELL RICHARDS
children,,two of whom have graduat-
ed from FA, and 11 who currently at-
tend there.
Dr. Richards said that he is still
very passionate about helping young
people become what the Lord has in-
tended and is excited about the im-
pending move of the academy cam-
pus to the 75-acre Tilden Road site,
which is about 10 to 15 minutes south
of the Plant Street location.


Whispering Oak Elementary students participated in a Science Night
organized by Mrs. Westover, science teacher, and the Orlando Sci-
ence Center. The students enjoyed 20 different stations with hands-on
experiments. Pictured are Grayson Cressman, Ximena Carcamo and
Patricia Carcamo trying to match several animals with models of their
'poop.'


Palm Lake Elementary student Sammy Kirby, a 3rd-grader in Mrs.
Aboun's class, was 1 of more than 20 students awarded the 1st Char-
acter Club Award of 2007. She and other students received the award
for fairness, the Character Club's virtue of the month. Pictured with
Sammy is her mom, Judy Kirby, PLES PTA president.
