- Principal Debbie
Lucas is hiring staff and
looking for community
help to name the school
and select a mascot.

By Kathy Aber

Orange County Public Schools is
well on its way to opening a relief
school for Lakeview and Gotha mid-
dle schools in August..
The as-yet-unnamed middle school
is located at 5660 Tiny Road, off
Tilden Road between State Road 535
and SR 545 in Winter Garden.
OCPS Project Manager Chris
Rieder told The West Orange Times
on Monday that the facility's six build-
ings are complete and interior finish-
ing work is underway. He said the new
school will be substantially complete
on July 17 and ready for students for
the 2007-08 school year. Originally,
OCPS had planned to open this school
in 2009, but the timetable was moved
up due to greater-than-expected pop-
ulation growth.
The school is a prototype design
that OCPS also used for Wolf Lake


and Freedom middle schools.
In December, former Lakeview
Middle Principal Debbie Lucas was
named the principal of the new school.
She told the Times last week that
the new school differs slightly from
the prototype design because it will
have a two-story classroom building
instead of the single-story plan OCPS
has used previously.
The school has a capacity of 1,216
students with a projected enrollment
of 1,052. It is built of concrete with
tilt-wall construction and designed by
Schenkel & Schultz architects in Or-
lando. Students will enter at the front
of the school or the bus loop area, so
the school will have a safer and more
secure environment, said Lucas.
Even though parents and students
are anxious to see the school, Lucas ad-
vises them not to enter the construc-
tion site.
"We are in the process of building
our Web site so you can seen how the
buildings are progressing," she said.
When the Web site is complete, Lu-
cas said it will also include addition-
al school information.

93-year-old still has plenty of livin' to do


- Oakland's oldest
resident, who spent
decades cooking for the
wealthy, is having a book
written about her life.

By Amy Quesinberry

At age 93, Cordie Walker's life has
come full circle. Born in Oakland to
parents who met in the town's infan-
cy, she is determined to live out her
years on the last remaining piece of
property belonging to her family of
Oakland pioneers.
And though Oakland is her home
- she is the town's oldest resident -
she certainly didn't spend nine
decades there. Walker loved to trav-
el as a young woman.
She left Oakland as a teen and found
herself in New York City and small-
er cities like Albany and Troy by the
time she was 20. She lived with an
aunt, who arranged a job for her in
Troy.
"I wanted a change," she said of
moving to New York. "I knew there
was more money up there."
During World War 11I, she had a job
putting together 155mm guns at the
arsenal in Watervliet, N.Y. That job fiz-
zled when the war was over, and she
eventually made her way to Miami
and opened a beauty shop with nine op-
erators in 1951.
Hard work has always been at the
very core of Walker's existence. Her
parents, James W. and Estelle Walk-
er, were employed by the Williams
family in Oakland and lived in a small
house on the Williams property close
to Lake Apopka. This is where
Cordelia Elizabeth Walker was born.
("Here in the South, they give you a
name and then shorten it.")
A sister, Lillie Walker Wade, and a
brother, George Walker, would fol-
low.
When Walker and her siblings were
little, their hometown of Oakland had
a bank, a meat market and a grocery,
a hotel and a big dock on the lake.
The three Walker children were ac-
customed to seeing their mama and

Don't tell Cordie Walker that 93 is old. Her life is way too busy, and
she doesn't have time to stop and think about her age.


daddy, as Walker refers to them, toil
to put food on the table and a roof over
their heads.
"He worked hard for us," Walker
said of her father. "We didn't have a
shack; we had a home, a beautiful
home with beautiful furniture."
Her parents met in Oakland after
James - one of the town's earliest
settlers - moved there from Savan-
nah, Ga., to help build the railroad and
Estelle later arrived on a train from
South Carolina.
Estelle and her future employer met
when Mrs. Williams went to the train
station to find someone to do some
work for her that day. Estelle took the
day job, and the Williamses ended up
hiring her long-term. She lived in a
little house behind the big Williams
house. This small house - where
Cordie's parents continued to live af-
ter they married - is where Cordie
was born. James worked for the
Williams family, too, once the rail-
road was complete.
Tragedy struck the family when
Cordie Walker was not yet 4. Her fa-
ther died at age 36 in the 1918 flu epi-
demic.
"Daddy was a spotless man," she


said wistfully, then smiled. "He was
very well-respected with both the
black and the white."
After her husband's death, Estelle
Walker kept the family afloat by run-
ning a laundry and employed four
women to wash and four to iron. One
of her contracts was with Montverde
Academy.
But she worried about little Cordie
wandering the streets alone. Back
then, Walker said, black students went
to school for only six months out of the
year
So, when she was 10 or 11, she went
to work for Julien and Mamie Sadler,
washing their dishes and helping make
the beds after school and during
breaks. On occasion, she babysat their
young daughter, Jean, when Mrs.
Sadler went to Orlando. (That little
girl grew up and married Bob Mac-
chi; the couple still lives in Oakland to-
day.)
Walker attended but didn't finish
the eighth grade, the highest grade
level at the Oakland school, which
was once located on Walker Street.
Ninth through 12th grades were

R.C. Stevens land deal must await environmental study


By Michael Laval

A deal that could bring the head-
quarters of one of Central Florida's
oldest construction companies to Win-
ter Garden has been put on hold.
After hearing a presentation from
City Manager Michael Bollhoefer last
Thursday, the City Commission
seemed ready to begin negotiations
with R.C. Stevens Construction Co.,
which wants to purchase 3.75 acres
of city-owned property at 848 E. Plant
St.
The matter was tabled, though, af-
ter concerns were raised by Commis-
sioner Gerald Jowers about chemical
spills that have soiled the property.
Bollhoefer told The West Orange
Times the site is contaminated by
petroleum and possibly other chemi-
cals. In the coming weeks, the city
will hire a firm to conduct an envi-
ronmental analysis and obtain a sec-
ond property appraisal.
Bollhoefer said Monday he hopes
to return to the commission in a month
and get approval to begin working on
a deal with R.C. Stevens.


The city advertised the property for
sale in August and received propos-
als from R.C. Stevens for $900,000
and New Providence Properties for
$950,000. When a city selection com-
mittee met in November, it found the
R.C. Stevens project would be a bet-
ter fit for Winter Garden.
"For us on the selection committee,
it was an easy choice," Bollhoefer
said.
The R.C. Stevens proposal, Boll-
hoefer told the commission, offered
a high-end office complex that could
create 225 jobs and $136,000 in total
taxes.
The New Providence proposal was
described as a lower-end-use project
with retail and office flex space. Boll-
hoefer said he was not able to deter-
mine the number of jobs or tax rev-
enues it would create.
The relocation of the R.C. Stevens
company headquarters to Winter Gar-
den was viewed as a plus by the com-
mission.
"I think it's real plain that R.C.
Stevens has the best proposal," said
Mayor Jack Quesinberry.


In other business, the elected offi-
cials:
* approved an application by Pub-
lix to hold on an open-air sale of flow-
ers on Feb. 13 and 14 in the parking
lot outside the store on West Colonial
Drive. It passed 3-2 with commis-
sioners Colin Sharman and Charlie
Mae Wilder voting against the sale on
the basis that it could hurt indepen-
dent florists in downtown Winter Gar-
den.
* passed an ordinance amending the
boundaries of the Winter Garden Vil-
lage at Fowler Groves Community
Development District to fill the gap
between the shopping center's north-
ern wall and the Stonecrest community.
* approved right-of-way mainte-
nance and development agreements
for The Oaks at Brapdy Lake devel-
opment.
* approved a change order with GAI
Consultants for $9,850 for the design
of improvements to West Newell
Street and Lakeview Avenue.
* approved an agreement for police
patrol services within gated commu-
nities in Winter Garden.


Ocoee considers early-warning

sirens to alert residents

of dangerous weather

By Mary Anne Swickerath

Should Ocoee invest money on early-warning sirens or weather ra-
dios to help protect residents from dangerous weather, such as tornadoes?
At last week's City Commission meeting, Commissioner Gary
Hood brought the issue up, saying he would like to see the city con-
sider a weather warning system for the'safety of its citizens, espe-
cially in light of the Feb. 1 and 2 tornadoes that killed 20 people in Lake
and Volusia counties.
City Manager Rob Frank said this week that Fire Chief Richard
Firstner is collecting a great deal of information on possible options
for the city, concerning both sirens and weather radios, along with
the types of equipment available and what the costs would be.
According to Frank, the city has no money in this year's budget
for such an expense, but if the commission decides a warning system
is necessary, the city could find the funds, in the interest of public
safety.
When the chief's report is ready, he will share it with Hood, who
will be representing the commission, and city staff before bringing it
back to the elected officials probably at the first meeting in March.
In other business, the elected officials:
* honored George Ledford and Amy Fulmer, both battalion chiefs,
as the recipients of the first-ever Firefighter of the Year Award in
Ocoee; and honored Firefighter James Kelley as the Firefighter of
the Quarter.
* approved spending $36,242 for landscaping improvements to four
medians on Clarke Road between West Colonial Drive and White
Road, plus $2,193 for additional irrigation repair and replacement.
* heard a request from Greg Murphy, a dean at Citrus Elementary,
to enforce the state statute that does not allow cars to be parked across
the sidewalks. Murphy said cars parked illegally across sidewalks
cause students to walk in the street. The Ocoee Police Department
will give written warnings to violators.
* appointed Lindsey B. Asay to the Parks and Recreation Adviso-
ry Board for a two-year term.
* appointed William E. Maxell and Louis A. Fazio Jr. to two-year
terms on the Human Relations Diversity Board.
* reappointed Louis Torres to a new term on the Citizens Adviso-
ry Council for the Ocoee Police Department.
* agreed for staff to replace handheld meter-reading devices that
are currently in use with three Sensus 5002 series handheld RadioRead
models.
* approved a new one-year contract with the Florida Department of
Transportation in the amount of $34,469 for routine maintenance of

Local police and fire reports


Boating incident
on Starke Lake
On Thursday, Feb. 8, at approx-
imately 7:50 p.m., officers of the
Ocoee Police Department respond-
ed to numerous 911 calls reporting
shouts for help coming from the
western shore of Starke Lake.
Upon arrival, officers observed
a boat making circles approximately
300 yards from the west shore and
a male's voice calling for help. Due
to the night sky, officers could not
see a'person who was in the water.
The Ocoee Fire Department re-
sponded with watercraft to rescue the
individual.
Meanwhile, an unknown citizen
also responded from a home on the
shore with his boat and was able to
pull the individual from the lake.
The citizen brought the victim, iden-
tified as Robert Bates, 46, of Bara-


nova Road in Ocoee, to shore along
with his boat, which was occupied
by Bates' dog.
Bates appeared to be uninjured
and advised the officers that he was
fishing on the lake when his dog hit
the throttle, causing him to be tossed
overboard and the boat to go in cir-
cles.
Bates was taken to Health Central
by ambulance to be checked for hy-
pothermia.
(Editor's note: Ocoee resident
Henry Morgan witnessed the inci-
dent and credited his neighbor, Jim
George, as being the individual who
saved Bates from drowning.)

Health Central invests in McKesson's Admin Rx to ensure patient safety


Health Central has recently made a
substantial investment in McKesson's
Admin Rx product to increase patient
safety. Admin Rx utilizes bar codes
on patients' wristbands, as well as
their charts and medications, and ties
the patient records to the hospital's
pharmacy to make the most up-to-date
information available to the care-
givers.
Currently, only about 10 percent of
the hospitals nationwide are using this
type of technology. Hospitals that have
implemented the new system have re-
ported up to a 70-percent decrease in
medication errors.
' The Horizon Admin-Rx point-of-
care application helps caregivers im-
prove medication safety. Nurses use a
handheld bar-code scanning device
during medication administration to
verify the "five rights" - right pa-
tient, right medication, right time, right
dose and right routine.
The solution provides a full-screen
view of the patient's medication pro-
file, drug administrations and care-
unit reviews. It also provides an online
clinical flow sheet that documents vi-
tal signs, medication profile, admin-
istration and patient history and care
comments.
Health Central's Information Sys-
tems department began the first phase
of the Admin Rx product on Jan. 16 in
the surgical care unit. Beginning Jan.
30, the remaining 10 patient care units,

Charles Walter Strube, 81, of Win-
dermere died Feb. 1 surrounded by
family. He was born June 16, 1925, in
St. Louis, Mo. He served in the U.S.
Navy during World War II and was the
quartermaster on an LST (Tank Land-
ing Ship) and a navigator, serving in
the Pacific Theater. His ship was one
of the first to land in Japan after the
armistice.
His daughter Cheryl Dowling of
Windermere said he shared great sto-
ries from his naval service, including
some about typhoons and kamikaze pi-
lots during the war.
He moved his family to Windermere
in 1960 and, with his brother, Don, co-
founded Color Wheel Paints. He re-
tired from the business in the early
1990s but still served as an advisor.
He and his wife, Lillian, were found-
ing members of Holy Family Catholic
Church.
In 2002, Strube's wife of 55 years
preceded him in death.
An avid golfer, he was also a found-
ing member of West Orange Country
Club in Winter Garden.
"He loved West Orange Country
Club and the members there," said
Dowling.
Longtime family friend Gertrude
Britt said Charlie played golf every
day except Saturday and Monday (the
day the course is closed). But recent-
ly Strube had to stop playing due to ill

health.
"There is a deep love between the
Britts and the Strubes," said Britt. "He
was a great guy; we're just going to
miss him. He was a pleasure to be
with."
Jimmy Pitchford of Winter Garden
was one of Strube's regular golfing
buddies.
"Charlie and I played golf from the
day they opened West Orange Coun-
try Club'until he quit playing about six
months ago about three or four times
a week," said Pitchford. "He was a
wonderful guy to be around."
Strube enjoyed fishing, especially at
Captiva Island, where he had a con-
dominium, and loved being at sea.
Strube was a faithful St. Louis Car-
dinal and Florida Gator fan and spent
many vacations traveling in his RV.
Strube had visited every state in the
United States and all but two provinces
in Canada. On one family vacation, his
daughter Cheryl said they had a cara-
van of five RVs.
"Family was very important to my
dad, and he taught us about family,"
said Dowling. In the early 1970s, her
mother started a family dinner night
tradition by gathering the entire fami-
ly together for the Monday evening
meal.
When the Strubes' children were in
college and as far away as Tallahas-
see, they would come home for dinner
on Monday nights and then drive back
to campus.


Grandchildren knew they had to do
their homework right after school on'
Monday because they were going to
Pops' for family dinner night, said
Dowling.
The tradition is now in its third gen-
eration since Dowling's daughter and
daughter-in-law have joined the circle.
As Dowling's mother grew older,
she said, other family members start-
ed taking turns hosting the meal to give
her a break.
"The last two Mondays, we had din-
ner at Daddy's," said Dowling. "We
were all there."
All of Strube's grandchildren took
his death hard, said Dowling, but Dil-
lon Strube took it the hardest.
"He was Dad's wingman. He took
him places, and Pops took him places,"
said Dowling.
"He was a great, funny guy and will
be missed by a lot of people," said his
daughter.
Strube is survived by his children,.

DAN PETRO


WOPA elects
new chairman
The 17-member board of the West
Orange Political Alliance recently
elected Dan Petro, president of Bright
Future Electric, as its new chairman.
He served on the West Orange
Chamber of Commerce board as its
chairman in 1993 and currently serves
on the Health Central Foundation
board of directors. He also was in-
strumental in the creation of the West
Orange Health Alliance.
With his return to the WOPA board
in 2005, Petro quickly re-established
himself as a leader in this organiza-
tion, which has been a political voice
for West Orange since its formation
in 1997.
' Rep. Steve Precourt, Florida House
District 41, and former WOPA chair-
man, said: "Dan Petro is a proven lead-
er in West Orange County, and I am
proud to also call him my friend. Our
community will be well served to have
him lead WOPA and provide the voice
tp our shared vision."
' Petro has met with each board mem-
ber to develop a long-range plan to
.continue the mission of the organiza-
tion. Its history includes initiatives on
local, county and statewide issues af-
fecting West Orange, such as the con-
tinuing efforts on Lake Apopka
restoration. WOPA has also been ac-
tive in endorsing and supporting coun-
ty and state candidates in election
years.
Also serving on the board are out-
going chairman Carolyn Sawyer, A.
Kurt Ardaman, Kay Behrens, Ted De-
Witt, Michael Hanley, Jim Karr, John
McReynolds, Dan O'Keefe, Bob
Pereira, David Sylvester, Jim Thomas,
Bbb Gosselin and ex-officio members
Stina D'Uva and Julie Kleffel.

Health Central Foundation's gala is 'Evening of Temptation'


On March 3, Health Central Foun-
dation will give its guests "An
Evening of Temptation" at its annual
gala held at the Rosen Shingle Creek
Resort. The event will feature three-
time Grammy Award- and two-time
American Music Award-winner
Richard Street, lead singer of the
Temptations for many years.
Proceeds from the gala will benefit
the Health Central Foundation School
Nurse Program, which was established
in 1995 to bring healthcare to students
whose socio-economic status has left
them without medical and dental care.
The Foundation currently provides
registered nurses in 33 Orange Coun-
ty public schools that serve 40,000
students on a daily basis. The Foun-
dation must secure $528,000 this year
to support the School Nurse Program
for the 2006-07 school year. The gala
will have a live and silent auction and
a four-course dinner
The Foundation teams with sever-
al area organizations to continue plac-
ing nurses in area schools and to con-
tinue operating the free children's
medical clinics. Orange County Pub-
lic Schools provides a major support
system by providing $14,400 toward
the $31,500 required to retain school
nurses in elementary and middle


schools.
Various healthcare providers, in-
cluding the Health Alliance and local
doctors and dentists, collaborate with
the Foundation to provide the free chil-
dren's medical services and dental
clinic.
This year's gala chairman is Tracy
Seebach, a Foundation board mem-
ber and director of office leasing and
sales for Veranda Park, which is also
the presenting sponsor for this year's
gala.
"The Health Central Foundation
School Nurse Program is extremely
important for the wellbeing of our chil-
dren and our entire community," See-
bach said. "It gives schools an op-
portunity to' provide real healthcare
that would otherwise not be readily
available to children who desperately
need it. The Health Central Foundation
gala is the biggest fund-raising event
of the year that benefits the School
Nurse Program, so any opportunity
we have to get more exposure is ex-
tremely beneficial for all of us asso-
ciated with the program."
Sponsorship opportunities are cur-
rently available. For more informa-
tion, call Ana Fernandez, annual fund
manager for the Foundation, at 407-
296-1837.

Kitchen Tune-up featured on 'Rachel Ray Show'


Pennsylvania couple Tom and Jes-
sica Shafnisky recently got the biggest
surprise of their life - a knock on
their door by Rachael Ray, host of the
Rachel Ray Show and author of sev-
eral best-selling books. They were sur-
prised to discover they won the search
for America's worst kitchen.
The couple spent a long weekend
at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut
while Clermont Kitchen Tune-Up and
a team of contractors worked around
the clock for five days to transform
their ugly kitchen into a masterpiece.
The show aired Feb. 9.
"I am thrilled Kitchen Tune-Up was
chosen to renovate the kitchen," said
Debra Woodard, owner of Clermont
Kitchen Tune-Up. "Mike Gillenkirk,
Pennsylvania's Kitchen Tune-Up
owner featured on Rachel Ray, did an
amazing job. The kitchen looked phe-
nomenal when he was done."
A few days before the transforma-
tion, Gillenkirk received a call asking
if he could transform the kitchen in
just five days.
"I knew I had a short time frame to
pull this off and that the kitchen was
going to be in bad shape, but I was
very excited that Kitchen Tune-Up
could help make a difference for the


tes
best...

W.G. resident takes exception to commission vote


Editor:

Our Winter Garden City Commissioners messed up at
the last meeting on Feb. 8. It is my belief that they voted
3-2 against "small business." A corporate giant, Publix Su-
per Markets, petitioned to sell flowers in an outside set-
ting, close to Highway 50, on Valentine's Day and the day
before. It is as if they did not already corner most markets.
Valentine's Day is one of the great days for local florists.
It is the day, along with Mother's Day, when they make


a large share of their years income and our commission
has let Publix come in and take a lot of their business.
Districts 3 and 4 voted to deny Publix's request. The oth-
ers should hang their collective heads in shame.
They also specifically killed a worthwhile project at
the corner of Bay and Ninth streets. Where were their
heads? Again, 3-2 but different people.

Watch out for home-improvements scheme


On a bright Saturday morning, a roofer knocks on
your door and offers you a free inspection. His crew is
working in the neighborhood, and so he can offer you
discounted pricing for any work that you might need done.
You have been wondering about your roof's condition.
What have you got to lose?
Well, maybe your shirt. Honest contractors hardly
ever go door-to-door soliciting business, meaning.that
you've probably got a scam on your doorstep. Many
homeowners have accepted "deals" like these when
they didn't need any work at all. Many times, once ac-
cepting money for supplies, the workers never returned.
The pitch may change depending on the day (drive-
way repairs and power-washing are common), but it's
an old game: consumer fraud. Those peddling home-im-
provement schemes often misrepresent themselves,
overcharge or fail to deliver goods.
The difficulty lies in knowing who to trust. Home-
owners of any age can be vulnerable, but seniors are
more often targeted. However, empowered consumers
can usually scare off contractors who aren't reputable
by insisting upon certain actions. Here's how you can
guard yourself and your wallet when undertaking home
improvements:
* Be wary. Never work with someone who shows up
at your door without your invitation. Also avoid any
contractors who arrive in unmarked vehicles, who re-
quire large payments before any work is begun or who
use high-pressure sales tactics.
* Get it in writing. Obtain at least three written cost
estimates. Identify any specific materials you want to
use because quality will affect the cost. Ask how cost
"over-runs," clean up and unexpected damages will be
handled.
* Do your homework before selecting a contractor. Ask
for references from earlier jobs, and call to see how sat-
isfied they were with the work. Request copies of a


contractor's license so you can call the state's con-
tracting board and the Better Business Bureau. Make sure
his license is in good standing, and inquire about any
complaints.
* Check the details. Before signing a contract, be sure
it includes a summary of the work to be done, a de-
scription of materials, the total price, specific timelines
and what will happen if the contractor doesn't meet the
deadlines.
* Consider the subs. Your contractor should provide
a list of any subcontractors, and everyone involved
should be licensed and bonded. Also, ask the contrac-
tor for a lien release (waiver). Some unscrupulous con-
tractors will subcontract work and then not pay "the
subs." A lien release will protect you from subcon-
tractors filing a lien against you for payment.
* Price any changes. If you consider altering your
project while in progress, request the cost of the addi-
tional materials and labor, no matter how small the
change. Paying $50 an hour adds up fast.
For many of us, our home is one of our largest as-
sets and a storehouse of memories. Be sure to exercise
caution with anyone promising to "improve" it.
For your local Better Business Bureau, go to
http://lookup.bbb.org.
To find Florida's licensing agency, look in the state
government pages of the phone book, usually under the
commerce department.
To find various contractors' associations by trade,
look under "Associations" in the yellow pages. Many
associations also host Web sites that will allow you to
search for contractors who abide by their codes of ethics.

McCollum urges caution when ordering 'free' credit reports


Attorney General Bill McCollum has issued a con-
sumer alert warning Floridians that many of the "free"
credit report offers available online are often far from
being free of charge. Because identity theft is a signif-
icant problem threatening Florida, many citizens seek
credit reports to monitor their personal information.
According to-the Federal Trade Commission, Florida
ranked fifth in the nation in 2006 for identity theft, with
more than 17,000 victims.
"The majority of the time, identity theft occurs long
before victims are aware of the crime, and often, by
then, their finances, their credit scores and their repu-
tations are seriously impacted," said McCollum. "With
'reports of data thefts on the rise, I encourage all Florid-
ians to regularly review their credit reports and bank
and credit card statements carefully to detect fraudulent
charges or accounts."
Numerous Web sites offer "free" reports or credit
scores that are tied to offers of credit monitoring and/or
other services. These offers often require payment, and
the consumer is usually unaware that he or she is pay-
ing for a service. Additionally, many Web sites offer tri-


al memberships that require consumers to cancel with-
in 30 days or they will be charged a monthly fee. Should
consumers choose to enroll in a credit-monitoring ser-
vice, the Attorney General recommends documenting
telephone calls when canceling subscriptions and fol-
lowing up in writing when they choose to cancel.
Consumers are able to request a free credit report
once a year in conjunction with Equifax, Experian and
TransUnion, the three national credit reporting com-
panies, and is the only official source for free annual re-
ports. Reports are also available by phone at 877-322-
8228. Consumers have the option of ordering just one
report or one report from each company, although au-
thorities recommend spacing the reports out every four
months.
Consumers with complaints about a credit reporting
service may call the Attorney General's Fraud Hotline
at 866-9-NO-SCAM (866-966-7226).
They may also visit the Attorney General's Web ssite
at http://myfloridalegal.com, where information is avail-
able on obtaining free credit reports and combating
identity theft.

Clay Rigby stands outside his Winter Garden store, Shapes of Clay, which sells handmade de-
cor imported from Mexico.

Handmade Mexican imports found at Shapes of Clay


By Michael Laval
Handmade Mexican d6cor of all shapes and sizes
can be found at a new store in Winter Garden,
Upon entering Shapes of Clay, located at the cor-
ner of East Vining and South Dillard streets, the eyes
are exposed to a feast of vibrant colors and unique ob-
jects. The store is filled with a wide variety of au-
thentic Mexican pottery and imports.
Owner Clay Rigby is a Montverde resident who
opened Shapes of Clay last summer with the desire
to run his own business after working for many years
in the homebuilding industry. His wife, Maria, is
from Hidalgo, Mexico and often makes trips to her
home country to help select the goods sold at Shapes
of Clay.
Rigby said his merchandise is imported from all
parts of Mexico. Sometimes, he said, he's able to ob-
tain specific items requested by customers.
"I can't always help them, but I'll do my best to get
it," Rigby said.
Some of the most popular items at Shapes of Clay
include Talavera products, clay pottery, fountains,


hand-carved benches and furniture, paintings, jewelry,
Mexican chiminea fireplaces, paper mache figures,
decorative plates and colorfully painted ceramics in
the shapes of lizards, frogs, birds, sun faces and more.
Shapes of Clay customers can find many products
priced from under $10 to others costing more than
$300,
Rigby's selection of jewelry, ranging in price from
$12 to $94, was obtained in Taxco, Mexico and most-
ly consists of silver, crystal and Mexican stones such
as turquoise.
Rigby, a member of the West Orange Chamber of
Commerce and the Historic Downtown Winter Gar-
den Merchants Guild, enjoyed participating in the
Winter Garden Music Fest and looks forward to rep-
resenting Shapes of Clay at the Bloom and Grow
Garden Society's Spring Fever in the Garden.
"I really enjoy Winter Garden," Rigby said. "It's
a phenomenal city."
Shapes of Clay is located at 43 E. Vining St. and
is open for business Tuesday through Saturday from
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.

FINICKY FINANCIERS

Buying an old house to fix up has an
attraction for many people. If you can find
a house with charm and character, a ren-
ovation may enable you to create just
the living environment you want. You
should start with a good Realtor to help
you locate the right house and recom-
mend lenders who make both acquisi-
tion and construction loans.
Financing a renovation is perhaps the
most difficult part of the whole project,
especially if the house needs extensive
work. Few banks will make these loans
to people who are not professional de-
velopers. You should prepare for your
loan application by having a written pro-
posal. It helps to have an engineer's re-
port or architectural plans and to include
estimates from contractors covering the
costs and timetables for the work to be
done. Your Realtor can help you put to-
gether a market analysis of the neigh-
borhood to show that you will not be
over-improving the property compared
with other homes in the area.
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 per-
sonal message line, 321-293-2160.

Boomer Planning 101
By Rick DiBiasio
CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER PRACTITIONER

Boomer Delusions

A few weeks ago I gave you my opinion that we Boomers plan to re-de-
fine retirement, that we would choose to continue to work after normal retire-
ment age and that we would cycle in and out of retirement as the whim suites
us. However recent studies from brokerage firms and insurance companies
suggest that we may not have the resources and freedom that we hoped to have
when we reach our retirement years. Health care cbncems, longer life ex-
pectancy and a lack of savings discipline may greatly curtail our lifestyle.
A recent Metlife survey of the generation just ahead of Boomers, the so-
called silent generation, planned a work-leisure lifestyle. However, only 12%
of those already retired are actually working and those surveyed consistently
underestimated how long they are likely to live (according to actuarial num-
bers) and overestimated how much money they could withdraw from their
nestegg. And Boomers, a generation willing to spend hundreds of dollars on a
course to learn how to develop discipline are remarkably undisciplined when
it comes to saving for retirement. In a recent Allstate survey, boomers said
saving for retirement was as difficult as quitting smoking, harder than losing
weight or working out!
Another myth about Boomers is that they are independent do-it-your-
selfers DIY). Yet, Home Depot acknowledges that DIFM (DO It For Me),
their installation business is a significant part of their business. In financial
services, small, independent planning firms (like mine) are seeing a steady
stream of boomers seeking DIFM service from financial professionals. I have
my own category when it comes to home repairs in my family home,
ITICDIMDIFM (I thought I could do it myself, do it for me!) I'm finding that
there are a number of people who feel that way about their planning. Buying a
few stocks over the internet and doing all of my financial plans seems like a
good idea at first until folks realize that .this nestegg is supposed to last me all
of my life and that it might be a good idea to let someone with a little experi-
ence and expertise guide me along the way!
Studies seem to indicate that many Boomers are putting off their anticipat-
ed retirement age, not because they love to work, but because they are con-
cerned that they have little hope of amassing enough wealth to afford retire-
ment and the idea of depending only upon the Social Security system is a con-
cern to them. Financial planning and systematic investing are highly recom-
mended for these Boomers. If you set goals and work towards them you have
a better chance of reaching your destination!

ELECT

C. Randall (Randy) FREEMAN

Mayor of Ocoee, Vote March 13, 2007
PUBLIC SAFETY should be a major concern in every city.
As Mayor, I would support needed funding for Police and Fire
SDepartments, including ADVANCED LIFE SUPPORT
TRAINING for EMTs.
Let's solve these problems as a community:
* Mall Safety - Many people are reluctant to go to the West Oaks Mall. With the impending opening of Fowler Groves Mall in
south Winter Garden, the deterioration of West Oaks Mall is likely to increase. This will lead to greater safety problems.
The problem needs to be addressed now!
* The majority of the children attending Citrus Elementary School live north of Silver Star Road. They either have to cross
the busy intersection at Clarke Road, which is extremely dangerous, or be driven to school, which creates a traffic problem.
A PEDESTRIAN OVERPASS, which could be funded with state money, would solve both problems.
* A citizen's advisory board on EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS should study the establishment of a TORNADO
WARNING SYSTEM to alert residents of approaching storms.
* The City should step up DUI ENFORCEMENT by having a specially trained officer on duty for all shifts.
* The City should also train an officer to be a DRUG RECOGNITION EXPERT (DRE). The DUI and DRE training is
reasonably inexpensive and would allow officers to give opinion testimony in court which should increase conviction rates.
* The City should hire an officer with extensive experience to assist in GANG SUPPRESSION. Gangs are a problem
that will grow as the City continues to grow.
Please watch the Candidate's Forum, presented by the Ocoee Woman's Club, OGTV Channel 21
on Thursday, February 15, 2007 at 7:00 p.m.

Rosemary Baker's mailbox con-
tained an unusual surprise last week.
The Ocoee resident's grandson Chris-
tian Pecek, who lives in Darmstadt,
Germany, sent her Flat Stanley, the
hero of the novel of the same name by
Jeff Brown.
Accompanying Flat Stanley was a
letter from Christian explaining that
his third-grade class was studying
about communities and maps and had
just read the Jeff Brown novel.
"In the story, Stanley is flattened but
not hurt when a bulletin board falls
upon him," wrote Christian. "His par-
ents take advantage of his flattened
condition and send him in an envelope
to California to visit relatives."
In keeping with the theme of the
book, Christian sent Stanley to his
grandmother and asked her to take
him around and snap photos of him
before sending him back to Germany.
The class would then mark the areas
that he visited on a big map.
Stanley paid a visit to The West
Orange Times last week and was
caught trying to get out of the vend-
ing machine on the front porch of the
office.
Rosemary said she planned to take
Stanley to work with her at Man-

ing the return of Flat Stanley to his

Christian is the son of Ken and
Kelli (Baker) Pecek. Ken is a sergeant
first class with the U.S. Army Sig-
nal Corps stationed in Germany.

Roger Roy, an investigations editor
with the Orlando Sentinel, returned
to the Windermere Rotary Club meet-
ing Jan. 30. He had been on assign-
ment in Afghanistan, embedded for
two months with an Army Unit and the
Florida National Guard. He told Ro-
tarians some interesting facts and in-
formation about the country and its
people.
In a previous Rotary Club presen-
tation last year, he described conditions
in Iraq when he was embedded with
the First Marine Division.
His slide presentation last week
showed a composite and revealing
picture of a country which most of
the Rotarians knew little about. Two
major cities, Kabul and Kandahar,
have approximately four to five mil-
lion residents. Herat, the third major
town, was founded by Alexander the
Great and has a population of about
one million citizens.
The country also has many small
towns and villages, and many are sit-
uated in areas of very rugged terrain
and, by American standards, are quite
primitive.
Much of the local travel across the
Pakistan-Afghanistan border is car-
ried out in ancestral nomadic fash-
ion.
Roy said Afghanistan under the


Taliban is an extremely restrictive
country that outlawed much educa-
tion and imposed many barriers that
even included limited weather fore-
casting. Girls were prohibited from
schooling and working. Communi-
cation is difficult because the country
is made up of many different ethnic
groups, tribes and religious sects,
many of which speak their'own lan-
guage. There are areas of vast wealth
and extreme poverty.
Despite all of this, Roy said he
found the Afghan people to be fasci-
nating and friendly but "not someone
you would like mad at you."
As a further extension of the club's
participation in the Rotary program
People Helping People, the club pre-
sented a check for $9,000 to Julie
Morris, director of Continuing Care at
Health Central Park. The check will
help the nursing home remodel its ex-
isting recreation room. Morris
thanked the club for the gift and its
continued support.
Last year, the club donated $10,000
to Health Central to aid the School
Nurse Program.
The Rotary Club of Windermere
meets Tuesday mornings at Winder-
mere Town Hall. For more informa-
tion on membership, call Coert
Voorhees at 407-876-6897.

Maggiano's opens 1st restaurant in Central Florida at Pointe Orlando


Maggiano's Little Italy is one of the
new restaurants opening in the up-
graded Pointe Orlando on Interna-
tional Drive. This is the first Mag-
giano's in Orlando, following openings
in Tampa, Jacksonville and Boca Ra-
ton.
The handsome, mahaogany-pan-
eled restaurant offers made-from
scratch food served family-style, red-
checked tablecloths, family portraits
and leather banquettes.
Overseeing the new restaurant are
General Manager Todd Brenner and
Executive Chef Alan Zegarra. Bren-
ner and Zegarra have been with Mag-
giano's, which is one of the restau-
rants of Dallas-based Brinker Inter-
national, for several years working
in Nashville and Washington, D.C.,
respectively.
Both began their careers as inde-
pendent restaurant owner-operators
for many years before joining the
Maggiano's team.
"We are very excited for the Or-
lando grand opening of Maggiano's
Little Italy," said Brenner. "Our
award-winning food is sure to please
convention-goers, vacationers and res-
idents alike. We also embrace the op-
portunity to employ more than 100
employees and become an integral
member of the community."
Maggiano's is known for its fami-
ly-style dining that is perfect for shar-
ing with a tableful of diners at $25.50
per person and with a selection of ap-
petizers, salads, pastas, main courses
and desserts.
"Orlando is where families come to
enjoy a special time together. There
is no better place for our restaurant to
cater to family gatherings," said Ze-
garra. "I started my career operating
my very own pizzeria, and Mag-
giano's still maintains the atmosphere
of your mother's kitchen. Maggiano' s
ambience and menu offerings are very
authentic and flavorful."


Cutting the ribbon at the grand opening of Maggiano's Little Italy on
International Drive are (I-r) Executive Chef Alan Zegarro, Orlando May-
or Buddy Dyer and General Manager Todd Brenner


Guests not ordering from the fam-
ily-style menu can select from a full
menu of Southern Italian favorites
from pastas to chicken, beef, veal and
seafood specialities

Cordie
offered to area black students only
at Jones High School "way out in
Orlando," and there was no trans-
portation at the time, said Oakland
resident Betty Wade, Lillie Wade's
daughter and Cordie Walker's niece.
(Walker's two younger siblings
would go on to graduate from Jones.)
So she worked. Through the years,
Walker said, she was also employed
by Oakland's Tilden, Briley and Ross
families.
But, being a child, she still had that
urge to go out and play. Two of her
cousins worked for the wealthy
Grace Mary Mather-Smith, and the
family chauffeur, Mr. Woodall,
would pick her up and take her to the
Mather-Smith estate to play with the
youngest child, Ann. Walker was
present when Ann's older sister, also
named Grace Mary, was married.
Cordie Walker's brush with the
wealthy would continue her entire
life. She found herself on Jupiter Is-
land, a barrier island on the east coast
of Florida, "where all the rich folks
live." She remained there,.living
among and working for them, for the
next 20 years.
She cooked for President George
W. Bush's grandmother, Dorothy
Walker Bush; for the Merck Phar-
maceuticals empire family (which
still sends her an occasional card);
and the late U.S. Navy Vice Admi-
ral Edward 0. McDonnell and his
wife, Helen.
,"I got paid well," she said of her
jobs in various kitchens. "I was cook-
ing with the staff. I never made
beds."
At one job, she even had her own
bedroom overlooking the Atlantic
Ocean.
At age 50, she decided to retire,
but "Mrs. Merck wanted me to work
for Mrs. Bush, so I did."
Walker was the only cook, whip-

ping up dishes of lamb and roast beef
and quail. There were usually green
vegetables accompanying the meal.
Her specialty dessert was souffles.
Upon returning home to Oakland
in the 1980s, she dedicated herself
to the Republican Party.
"I worked very hard for a very long
time to make this'a two-party state,"
she said. "I'm a Republican all the
way.".
Her father was a Republican, too,-
and instilled in his family the im-
portance of supporting candidates
who help black citizens.
Walker said that even though she
was a young child when he died, she
believes he was teaching her lessons
"even when I was in Mama's
womb."
Her parents are buried in different
cemeteries in Oakland because they
died so many years apart. Estelle
Walker, who died in 1967 at age 93,
was laid to rest in the Oakland
Tildenville Cemetery; James Walk-
er was buried in 1918 in the recent-
ly recovered Oakland African-Amer-
ican Historic Cemetery.
"I would really like to be buried
beside him," Walker said of her fa-
ther, who was a 33rd-degree Mason.
"I would. I think about him often."
But life is for the living and age is
just a number, Cordie Walker main-
tains, and she's determined not to let
the number 93 get in her way. She
stays busy with friends. She said she
might travel to Saratoga Springs,
N.Y., this summer, but is adamant-
ly against flying.
She's helping a friend write a book
about her life. It's called Cordie.
She still drives.
On the day of her interview with
The West Orange Times, she had
baked dozens of lace cookies and
was planning to box some up for a
neighbor.

Scouts invited to

The Oakland Nature Preserve is on
the lookout for Girl Scouts and Boy
Scouts who would like to volunteer
at ONP. The preserve welcomes boys
working toward their Eagle Scout
badge and girls working on their
Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.

- (Continued from front page)

Her telephone rang several times
during the hour, calls from close
friends. She told one caller the news-
paper was doing "a piece" on her,
then she giggled.
She also had a Bible class that
evening.
"I'm a church-goin' woman, and
I've been a Christian all my life,"
she said. Her home church is St. Paul
Missionary Baptist in Oakland.
"It's amazing she's so self-suffi-
.cient at her age," Betty Wade said.
."She's made of hard stuff. They
don't make them like her anymore."
During the interview, Walker
talked about her brother's death at
age 30 and about her sister, who suf-
fered a stroke and has lived at Health
Central Park for 15 years. She ad-
mitted this about herself as a young
woman: "I was cute, and I wore pret-
ty clothes. I still do."
When chatting with the reporter,
she used terms like "my people" and
"ya'll" when referring to the two
races.
She shared her desire for male
companionship and smiled devilish-
ly at the fact that very few people
know she was ever briefly married
as a teen-ager.
"I was young, but I wasn't so
dumb," she said. "I married a col-
lege man who could do something
with his life."
The marriage lasted only a few
years, and Walker never remarried.
She even produced the divorce doc-
ument and said, "Tell 'em you saw the
proof."
It's safe to say that Cordie Walk-
er is a content woman.
"I had a wonderful life, a beautiful
life," she said. "With God's help,
I've made it on my own. He has giv-
en me the will, the mind and the emo-
tion.
"It's a good feeling."

ference in Tampa this spring.
Being adjudicated with more than 30
schools, Dr. Phillips students received
straight Superiors and became one of
the final four one-acts to move on to

formance of two contrasting mono-
logues. Junior Constance Lee won

Thompson, trainer; (standing in back) Headmaster Kasey Kesselring; and (1-r) students Leanne Renipel,
Kelly Mendez, Jennifer Otterbacher, Ali Quammen and Kailin Kesselring.


Winter Fun Horse Show
Montverde Academy held its third
annual Winter Fun Horse Show re-
cently, and there was no doubt that
Wired No Doubt and Tim Thompson,
trainer at the academy's equestrian
center, were very excited as Thompson
directed the mare to the Winner's Cir-
cle in the Championship class for the
Kasey Kesselring family of Montverde.
Middle school students Kailin
Kesselring, Meg Caldwell and Dylan
Osborn racked up many ribbons for
the MVA equestrian team. Kailin re-
ceived her first blue ribbon in the Youth
Performance division aboard Grace In
Command. She also received two
back-to-back blue ribbons showing Re-
peat's Color Me In in the Spotted Tri-
al Specialty and Good Seat and


Hands.
Caldwell made her blue-ribbon ride
on her Limited Performance horse,
Stock Up On Cash. Osborn started the
show carrying the American flag
aboard Rembrant.Com and continued
to show Remi and received second-
place ribbons in both Youth Trail Plea-
sure and Good Seat and Hands.
MVA students Rachel Davis (mid-
dle school); Elizabeth Krupski (upper
school) and Christopher DiNonno and
Jordan Cooke (lower school) made
their show-ring debuts at the Winter
Fun Horse Show. Davis showed her
mount, Winning Nite Light, in the Easy
Gait Amateur class and again in the
Youth Easy Gait.
Krupski showed Janie's Got a Gun
in Youth Country Pleasure and Cooke


and DiNonno showed in the Youth
Easy Gait. All four riders did an excel-
lent job, and the staff at the equestri-
an center are excited about having the
new members on the show team.
Upper school team members Kelly
Mendez, Jennifer Otterbacher, Ali
Quammen, Lucia D'Ascanio and
Leanne Rempel completed the suc-
cess for the team, riding numerous
times in several divisions to win many
ribbons for home-team acclaim.
The academy showed 25 horses an
impressive 48 times in 38 classes
made up of performance, plantation
and versatility divisions - showing the
beauty of each aspect of the Ten-
nessee Walking Horse breed.
The MVA equestrian team will com-
pete again March 3 in Ocala.


Students at Lake Whitney Elementary stepped up to the challenge of 'Jeopardy' at a recent fund-raiser for
the PTA. Students were encouraged to participate in the free event with friends or family in teams of 3. The
teams were then asked questions on topics ranging from the location of the Eiffel Tower to the name of Char-
lie Brown's dog. Everyone had a good time.

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


"Man does not live on bread alone, but on every
word that comes from the mouth of God."
Matt. 4:4

As I'm sitting here, I am hungry. The growling of my
stomach and my headache tell me that I need to eat. I can
hear the activity in the kitchen and there are amazing
smells coming from the oven and the grill, so I know
something really good will be available soon. There is a
bowl of chips on the coffee table. If I wanted to I could
eat a snack but I choose to wait for the main event. From
previous experiences at this specific table I expect that it
will be well worth the wait. The food will be good and the
company will be a delight as we pass the platters around
and share in conversation and laughter.
I thank God for the meal I am about to eat. I thank
Him for the hands that have prepared it so lovingly and
thoughtfully, with my needs and wants in mind. He is

FAITH FAMILY COMMUNITY


good and I feel His love through these precious people who
care for me. But as good as it is, it is not enough to live
by.
Father, thank you that I can share Your table whenever
I want. At Your table I am fed things eternal and my spir-
it is nourished and I am filled. I find wisdom and direc-
tion and correction. When I come eagerly and expec-
tantly I find joy. When I come tired, I find rest and
strength. When I come sick, You bring healing. You nev-
er disappoint and I know the meal You provide is hand-
crafted for me and there is no sweeter fellowship.
Father, don't let me settle for less. My physical body
can't function on only junk food. Forgive me for the times
I fill my mind with the things the world provides and
don't leave time to spend with You.

From the believers at First Baptist Winter Garden
