Foundation poured for new West Orange High


- The new school
buildings are being
constructed just south of
the present WOHS facility
and will open in August
2008.

By Vina Mogg

The administrative team of West Or-
ange High School gathered with mem-
bers from the Clark Construction Com-
pany early last Wednesday to watch the
first corner slab of the new facility
poured. The foundation was poured for -
the central energy building, the power-
house for the new eight-building cam-
pus that will cover 42 acres. Set into the
foundation was a capsule marked "suc-
cess" by Dr. Dan Buckman, West Or-
ange principal.
"This capsule is our wish for success
for this whole building project," said
Buckman. "As the foundation of each
building is poured, we will place one
of these four capsules into the corner-
stone."
Buckman has established the four
cornerstones for the new WOHS to be
Collaboration (between community,
parents, teachers and students), Aca-
demics/Athletics, Responsibility and
Excellence. The Excellence capsule will
be placed under the threshold in the
building of the main lobby of the new
facility.
By September 2007, all slabs for the
eight buildings will be poured, covering
350,000 square feet. All the tilt wall,
steelwork, bar joists and metal deck for
the roofs will be complete, so the finish
work can be done, according to Bruce
Hansley, senior superintendent for Clark
Construction.
Concerning their work at WOHS,
Hansley said: "The administrative team
has been great. There is good, open
communication. Our main concern is
that the students are protected and safe
here on an existing site."
Coach John Boston, WOHS athletic
director, was on site as the first foun-

memorate the foundation pour of the 1st building for the new West Orange
High campus: (1-r, in front) Dr. Dan Buckman, Murray Sawyer, Gwen Ellison,


dation was poured.
"I never thought I would see this hap-
pen," said Boston, who has been at
WOHS 21 years. "I am excited to get a
new school, but there are mixed emo-
tions. It is unique to have been here for
such a long time. I have watched the
whole area evolve. When we first got
here, Winter Garden was a small-town
community....In areas we have kept the
small-town identity."
"It is sad to see the old building go;
there are so many memories here," said
Andrew Jackson, administrative dean,
who was a WOHS student in the late
'80s and the early '90s. "But this is great
for the community to have a first-class
athletic field, the best kids in Orange
County and a brand-new facility. It is an
exciting time."
The cornerstones of each building
will continue to be poured during the


next few weeks, but the foundation of
WOHS has been established during the
past 30 years and continues to build.
Over the past few years, the collab-
oration between the community and the
school has increased greatly, with a
strong award-winning PTSA and the
initial groundwork for a WOHS Foun-
dation with community leaders - many
of them WOHS alumni - coming to-
gether.
The cornerstone of Academics is on
solid ground, as students from WOHS
have consistently performed well in aca-
demic endeavors. Students in the Ad-
vanced Placement programs have one of
the highest pass rates in the district, with
the physics program at 100 percent last
year.
Last year, four students from these
programs went on with scholarships to
Harvard, Brown, Williams College and

and Brian Vail of Clark Construction, Jon Rasmussen and John Boston.


Wharton School of Business at the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania. This year, Anna
Walker has been named a National Mer-
it Scholarship Finalist and will be at-
tending Wake Forest University.
"The core academic teachers in this
program are exceptional," said Larry
Bagwell, academic dean. "These teach-
ers have a gift and are once-in-a-life-
time teachers who have been here for
many years."
The cornerstone of Responsibility
has been established, as the academic
team at WOHS %\ works together with the
students.
"Teachers are a big factor in build-
ing mutual respect between teachers
and students," said Jon Rasmussen, aca-
demic dean.
"Considering the diversity of students
we have here, the students coexist and
thrive. They learn from and appreciate


each other," said Jackson. "Our students
don't look at the differences; they seem
to like learning about other cultures."
The cornerstone of Excellence is es-
tablished in a variety of areas in the
school. From athletics to agriculture to
academics to the arts, WOHS programs
have established themselves locally, re-
gionally and even internationally.
Last year the WOHS choirs finished
first and second at the International
Choral Festival in Verona, Italy. Re-
cently, students from the drama de-
partment finished first in state compe-
titions.
"We have a lot to offer academical-
ly, athletically and socially. Not a lot
fall through the cracks. Students are go-
ing to learn if they like being here," said
Jackson. "Like a family building a new
house, we're still the same family."

Health Central Foundation gala

is 'An Evening of Temptation'


Health Central Foundation is plan-
ning to give its guests An Evening of
Temptation this Saturday, March 3,
at its annual gala. The dinner-dance
and auction will be held at the new
Rosen legacy property at the Rosen
Shingle Creek Resort and feature the
three-time Grammy Award- and two-
time American Music Award-win-
ner Richard Street, lead singer of The
Temptations from 1971-95.
Proceeds from the fund-raiser will
benefit the Health Central Founda-
tion School Nurse Program, which
was established in 1995 to bring
healthcare to students whose socio-
economic status has left them with-
out 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 festivities will include a live
and silent auction, four-course din-
ner and legendary entertainment.
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. OCPS is a major sup-
port system for the School Nurse Pro-
gram by providing $14,400 toward
the $31,500 required to retain school
nurses in elementary and middle
schools. Various healthcare

- The 40-acre site off
State Road 545 and Siplin
Road would be home to a
new elementary and
middle school.

By Michael Laval

Winter Garden is clearing the way
for new schools in its rapidly grow-
ing southern region.
The City Commission approved the
first reading and public hearing of an
ordinance last Thursday to designate
about 40 acres of land to be the site
of an Orange Coufity Public Schools
campus consisting of both an ele-
mentary and middle school.
The commissioners voted to amend
the city's Comprehensive Plan by
changing the property's future land
use designation from Orange County


Agricultural to City Public Facility
and Education. The ordinance could be
passed at a second public hearing set
for the March 16 City Commission
meeting.
The site of the future campus is lo-
cated south and west of Siplin Road
and east of County Road 545.
City Manager Michael Bollhoefer
told The West Orange Times the pri-
mary purpose of these new schools
would be to serve the city's growing
population south of West Colonial
Drive while also relieving area
schools.
At the Jan. 11 City Commission
meeting, School Board Chairman
Karen Ardaman gave a report on the
school district's plans in Winter Gar-
den and the West Orange region. She
said the campus off Siplin and S.R.
545 would be scheduled to open by
2009 or 2010.
In other business, the elected offi-


cials:
* appointed James Balderrama to
fill a vacancy on the city Planning and
Zoning Board.
* approved the site plan for the
43,000-square-foot City Hall project.
* voted to accept $587,000 in Com-
munity Development Block Grant
funds from Orange County for the
city's Zanders Park renovation pro-
ject.
* approved the first readings for a
pair of ordinances to rezone and
amend the future land use map for .44
acres located at 186 S. Main St. If
passed following public hearings set
for March 16, the property would be
rezoned from R-2 to C-1 and desig-
nated as City Commercial.
* approved a contract not to exceed
$130,000 with Spies Pools to com-
plete renovations to the city-owned
Bouler Pool.

Ocoee approves $12.5 million

agreement with Centex Homes

for Crown Point land purchase

By Mary Anne Swickerath

The contract between Ocoee and Centex Homes for the purchase
of 75 acres of city-owned property in the Ocoee Crown Point de-
velopment received formal approval by the City Commission last
week.
Centex will pay $12.5 million for the land that will be used for the
construction of 250 single-family homes on the eastern shore of Lake
Apopka.
Ocoee' s Community Development Director Russ Wagner told the
elected officials that city staff had negotiated extensively with Cen- -
tex on the contract for the purchase and development of the land.
"This is a very significant public-private partnership," he said.
"This is truly a joint venture."
He described the Centex village plan as a "New Urbanist design
project" along the lines of Baldwin Park in Orlando and Celebration
in Osceola County, a project he feels will garner national attention
for the city.
The plan will feature a great deal of green space, including a se-
ries of parks; Florida-vernacular architecture featuring houses with
courtyards and garages and trash cans not visible from the street but
accessed by a lane running along the back of the houses; and a vari-
ety of setbacks and non-rectangular lot sizes.
Centex had originally planned to begin construction this spring, but
the real-estate market slowdown will probably delay this start.
The agreement, then, reflects this slowdown and grants Centex a
feasibility period until Sept. 28 to decide whether to purchase the
property. The company is required to pay more than $200,000 in de-
posits before the September deadline.
The city paid $1 million for the 75 acres during its purchase of the
larger Coke Property, now known as Ocoee Crown Point. The city

Letters to the editor


From our archives

Old Times


Editor:
People living side-by-side in similar homes often pay
very different tax rates yet receive the same level of ser-
vices. Elderly couples seeking to downsize are likely to
face dramatically increased taxes in their new smaller
home. These stark inequities are creating an atmosphere
of reform. Good.
As citizens, we generally understand the need to pay tax-
es, but we also demand that they be fair. Our current sys-
tem of taxing properties is not fair. In response to public
concerns, state lawmakers and our governor have vowed
to make changes. They are promising some feel-good
fixes, like doubling the homestead exemption, and are
gaining popular support in the process. But a few nips
and tucks around the edges may not be what the public
is crying for, nor will it repair a system that is out of bal-
ance.
Let me explain. Over a decade ago, voters agreed to
cap property taxes via the "Save Our Homes" initiative,
which limits the amount by which property taxes may
increase for homeowners who remain in their homes.
This well-intended cap shifted property taxes to new
homebuyers, renters, owners of second homes and busi-
nesses. As a result of this unfair shift, two-thirds of prop-
erty taxes is now paid by those who do not own homes.
Not only is this unfair, it makes no sense.
What also makes no sense and is often lost in this de-
bate is the fact the state is, once again, in the process of
telling local governments how to raise local taxes in or-
der to provide local services. But should state lawmakers
in Tallahassee alone be proposing substantive changes
tweaking a taxing system that is supposed to fund local
city and county governments?


As the executive director of Florida League of Cities,
I am deeply concerned local city governments and the
people we serve will be stuck with a "one-size-fits-all" so-
lution developed by state lawmakers who are unaware
of the diverse challenges facing local communities. One-
size government solutions rarely fit anyone. We support
local control over local taxes, and we prefer real taxing
options that fit our cities.
Florida's cities and their local citizens should be giv-
en the authority to design tax systems that suit their in-
dividual, changing needs. Why stop at doubling the home-
stead exemption? Some cities may want it tripled or
quadrupled while others may not. Many cities may pre-
fer having their services paid exclusively through prop-
erty taxes because residents can take a deduction on their
federal income taxes. Some cities may choose the local
option sales tax because visitors pick up much of the tab.
While I would personally prefer an increase in my sales
tax in exchange for a lower property tax rate, I don't have
that option - nor does my local city government. And
that is the point.
City governments and local voters should decide how
local cities fund local services - not state lawmakers in
Tallahassee with their "one-size" approach.
I believe that city governments work best because they
are closest to the people they serve. City leaders and lo-
cal voters are best able to decide how to provide neces-
sary funding for local services. As such, we would like
more than just a patch-up for our broken property tax
system - we prefer giving local city governments and lo-
cal citizens a stronger voice and a full array of choices.

Executive Director, Florida League of Cities

Miles Ardaman, a 13-year-old Lakeview Junior High

Fishback, replied to 4-year-old Miles' request to play a
game of Candyland, "Why not learn to play chess in-
stead?"
"You want to hear something really funny?" one of our
friends from Windermere said to us? He read us the list

"They've gotta be kidding. We have as much right to be
snobs as anyone else."...Oh well, we've survived for
years without a Social Register. Maybe some of the
more fortunate can sneak a peek in Windermere or Apop-
ka.

Seniors often receive invitations to seminars from law
firms or financial planners. One common topic that is
promoted at these seminars is the revocable living trust
- a trust that is established and funded with some of
your assets while you are alive. You may have wondered
if you really need what these seminars are selling.
The answer is probably yes, but it may be for entire-
ly different reasons than what the seminars may be telling
you. Revocable living trusts are sometimes sold by claim-
ing that they can save you estate taxes when you die.
This claim may be true if your estate would be subject
to estate tax in the first place. An estate with a taxable base
of $2 million or less from 2006 through 2008 (and $3.5
million in 2009) would not incur estate tax. Even if your
estate's tax base would exceed these amounts, the same
tax savings could be achieved by a testamentary trust -
one that is established in your will and funded after your
death. With a revocable trust, you will also have, to rec-
ognize income produced by the trust assets.
Therefore, the reasons to establish a revocable living
trust are non-tax reasons.
First, assets in a revocable trust are not subject to pro-
bate at your death; rather, these assets are distributed ac-
cording to the provisions of the trust. (Probate is the
court-administered process of distributing a decedent's
assets according to the decedent's will; or, if there is no
will, by the state's laws of intestate succession.) The
length and costs of the probate process can vary greatly
by the nature of the assets in an estate, and a particular
state's laws, but avoidance of probate will generally save
money in every estate.
Second, the trust continues to administer its assets for


your benefit even if you become mentally incompetent.
Someone else appointed by you becomes the successor
trustee. If you have given this successor trustee a durable
power of attorney, he or she can also place all of your re-
maining assets in the trust.
Third, you can state in your will that all probate prop-
erty at your death is to be given to the revocable living
trust for eventual distribution to your beneficiaries as
stated in the trust. The advantage of this technique is that
the trust, unlike your will, is not made public. There-
fore, greater privacy is achieved. John F. Kennedy Jr.
used this tactic to foil the attempts of the press to publi-
cize who got what from his estate.
Finally, if you anticipate that someone may contest
the validity of your will, placing most of your assets in
a revocable living trust can provide better protection
from such claims. The trust will have been in operation
for many years, and judges can be reluctant to upset
something that is already in place.

Boomer Planning 101
By Rick DiBiasio
CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER"T

Inheriting an IRA

Here's a common misconception, you inherit an IRA account from
someone, perhaps a substantial one and someone tells you that you need to
cash it in immediately or within the next five years. Not so fast my friend!
Those crazy kids at the IRS have allowed for some broader interpretation
of the rules and knowing about them just might save you substantial
amounts of money.
What we are talking about is called a "Stretch IRA" by and it allows
you to take income from an inherited IRA account over a beneficiary's
lifetime, paying taxes only on'the distributions. Let me give you a hypo-
thetical example: Joe, age 40, inherits a $250,000 IRA from his Dad's
pension plan rollover. If he simply cashed the account in, he'd have to add
all $250,000 to his income, catapulting him into a very high tax bracket
and, since Joe is probably already in his peak earnings years, he doesn't
need all of this money as income right now. Even taking the money out of
the account over 5 years still adversely affects his income tax situation.
But, Joe decides to utilize the stretch IRA option. He re-titles the IRA
in his name as beneficiary and he'll take a taxable distribution based on
his 43.6 year life expectancy of $5,733.94.(2.29%). Next year, and each
year thereafter, he will have to recalculate his life expectancy and take a
distribution based on the December 31st value of the account. Joe must
make these minimum distributions each year, although he can take more
moneyout ut of the account at anytime, as long as he includes it in his tax-
able income for the year. Here's another benefit, if Joe were to pass
away during this distribution period, his heirs are allowed to continue
Joe's distributions, based on Joe's age if he were still alive. So, Joe's in-
herited IRA can be "stretched" over several generations. This is a very ef-
fective planning tool, but it needs to be set up with an IRA custodian who
allows you to use the stretch IRA option; not all of them do! Also, it is a
very good idea to plan ahead and roll your money out of 401K's and other
retirement plans into an IRA rollover account since most retirement plans
will not allow your heirs to utilize the stretch option. You should discuss
any legal or tax implications with the appropriate advisor. Please give me
a call if you'd like more information on Stretch IRA's.

WHAT IS THE MARGIN
ON AN ARM?

When you are shopping for an Ad-
justable Rate Mortgage (ARM), con-
sider the margin. Each time your loan is
adjusted, the new interest rate will be
tied to whichever of several interest-rate
Indices is specified in your contract. The
margin is the percentage spread above the
index rate applicable at the time of the ad-
justment.
Say you have a one-year ARM with a
2.5% margin and that your applicable
index at the beginning was at 3.5%, plus
margin of 2.5%, for a total rate of 6.0%.
If at the end of the first year the index
rate had moved to 4.0%, then the rate
for the second year of your loan would
be adjusted to 6.5%. Some lenders of-
fer lower initial rates with higher margins.
Such a mortgage would be cheaper if
the Index rates did not rise later, but more
expensive if they did.
Call today for advice on choosing one
of the many mortgage loan packages
available today.
If you would like to talk further about
buying or selling real estate, please con-
tact Libby Tomyn CRS at Century 21

'Hope, Legacy students read, read, read


The classrooms are empty, and there
is silence - and it's a regular school
day. Where is everyone? All the kinder-
garten through sixth-grade students are
outside for one hour of quiet reading
time, popcorn and juice.
The event was one of several spe-
cial activities organized for the first
Hope Charter and Legacy High School
Read-a-thon. The read-a-thon,
launched Jan. 4, challenged students
to read consistently for 20 days to meet
or exceed pre-set goals. Goals ranged
from 600 minutes of reading in kinder-
garten to 2,000 minutes in the 10th
grade.
Families, friends and businesses
were asked to sponsor either an indi-
vidual student or an entire classroom.
Several events were planned
throughout the month to encourage stu-
dents to read. Susan Vogt from the Or-
ange County Library System's Winter
Garden branch engaged the kinder-
garten and first-grade classes in an af-
ternoon of fun storytelling and finger
plays.,
Capt. Don Rousseau of Pirates Din-
ner Theater arrived in full captain attire
to capture the second- through fourth-
grade classes with a lively reading of
How IBecame a Pirate. Book pals sto-
ryteller Bill Cordell shared sound effects
with fourth- through sixth-graders. The
seventh- and eighth-grade classes had
a hands-on experience with Edward
Meyer from Ripley's Believe It or Not.
A total of 187 students (65 percent
of the student body) participated in the
read-a-thon and read a combined total
of 113,865 minutes.
Prizes were awarded (according to the
number of minutes read relative to their
pre-set goals) in three categories:
largest pledges for an individual stu-
dent, most minutes read by an indi-
vidual student and most classroom min-
utes read.
The school thanks all who sponsored
a classroom: the Magic Wand and the

ing the necessities to victims of natu-

rector of the church's Pioneer Club.
"Our children thought about what it
would be like for these kids to wake
up one morning and have no toys.
They decided they could help by do-
nating their own toys.
"It was more meaningful because
this wasn't asking Mom or Dad to go
buy a toy to donate; it was important
for them to feel their sacrifice was
helping others."
The South 14th Street Church of
Christ in Leesburg will help distribute


the toys to affected families.
Pioneer Club meets Wednesdays at
7 p.m. at the church, 1450 Daniels
Road, Winter Garden. This church-

Bone marrow recipient returns home from Duke


Steven Thompson returned home
to Ocoee a few weeks ago following
a fodr-and-one-half month stay in the
Raleigh-Durham area for treatment of
relapsed leukemia with a double um-
bilical cord stem-cell transplant at
Duke University Hospital.
His mother, Diane, a registered
nurse, helps Steven with his numer-
ous medications and IVs, which fre-
quently need changing due to graft-
vs.-host disease, a disease that affects
transplant patients when the donor
cells recognize the recipient's tissues
and organs as foreign and attack them.
His medications and blood levels
have to be carefully balanced to pre-
vent this.
Steven has frequent visits to the
doctor's office, and Diane draws his
blood and takes it in to the lab when
Steven doesn't have to go in to reduce
his exposure to people. He is severe-
ly immunosuppressed and has to wear
a mask outside of the home and is un-
able to go to stores or movies or any-
place where people gather.
Steven's transplant doctor has al-
lowed him the same two visitors un-
til his immune system recovers, which
could be anywhere from nine months

C. Randall (Randy) FREEMAN
Mayor of Ocoee, Vote March 13, 2007


MY VISION FOR

THE FUTURE OF OCOEE

Ocoee has tended to be reactive in the past thereby operating behind "the growth curve." The city should exercise vi-
sion and be proactive by planning and implementing for the future instead of reacting and trying to catch up to it.
The city should embrace COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT. It is fiscally responsible to develop a sound tax base
and the residents deserve shopping, dining, entertainment and other venues without having to leave town. Ocoee has
a reputation as a town in which it is difficult to do business. The city needs to overhaul its entire approach-starting
with a cumbersome permitting process and proceeding all the way to effective promotion.
SERVICE AND INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDS. Attention to new development has resulted in inattention to ser-
vice and infrastructure needs of older neighbors. Basic services, such as police and fire protection, and infrastruc-
ture, such as street lighting, road maintenance and drainage, have been neglected in some areas.
EDUCATION. Ocoee should continue to support our existing schools. The question of whether we should seek
CHARTER SCHOOLS is an issue that has bogged down our government for years. We need to do a comprehensive
study of the issue and submit the question to a vote by all residents so that we can either go forward with a plan or
put the matter to rest and focus our attention elsewhere.
Share your ideas with me by e-mail at randyfreeman2007@yahoo.com or telephone (407) 877-7995 (office)

Quarter Midget

Racing At Its Finest
Best of luck as you retire!
To our retiring driver at the ripe old age of 16, Robert H. Gentry, V. Wow, what a hard concept to imagine!
You have absolutely taken our hearts and admiration to a whole new level. Your profound ability to take this
sport by surprise and make the most of your racing career in four short years, you have accomplished so much
more than we could have ever imagined. Your drive alone, allowed you to show everyone your determina-
tion and desire to get to the top and WOW did you ever.

This doesn't even include the several first place track wins, 2nd & 3rd place wins, track fast times and all the
out of state races we went to, we could just go on and on. You truly set this sport on fire and we are so proud
of you.
Nevertheless, we are sadden that your time is over. We will never forget the exhilaration we got watching the
race and hearing the younger drivers in the grandstands saying they want to drive like Robby Gentry. We are
extremely proud of you! Your dad and I leave you and everyone else with these few thoughts:
* You fall in love with personality, but you live with character
* People ask for criticism, but they only want praise
* Being beaten is often a temporary condition, giving up is what makes it permanent
We know how hard you worked for it all and can not say thank you enough for being the best you could be.
You make us so proud to call you, "OUR SON", OUR "GRANDSON" and "OUR PRIDE AND JOY".
Love,
Dad, Mom, Memaw Jan, Papa, Memaw Glenda and Dallas

Bruhn (right) are presenting a Life-Saving Award to Capt. Vincent
Bounocore for his 'above and beyond the call of duty' efforts. While off
duty, Capt. Bounocore was one of the first to arrive upon the scene of
an accident and immediately took charge ensuring that the victim re-
ceived first aid until help arrived.


Mayor Gary Bruhn (right) and Police Chief Dan Saylor (left) congratu-
late centere, I-r) Sgt. Paul Conway and Office Dale Wesenberg for their
life-saving efforts. When these 2 Windermere police officers respond-
ed to a call from a residence in The Manors subdivision, they were the
1st responders and came upon an individual in cardiac arrest..They
immediately sprang into action, using the defibrillator in their police ve-
hicle and restored the victim's heartbeat, saving his life.

joined Island One Resorts as president
of the Island One Resorts Foundation.

day operations, as well as the long-
term strategy of the company's new
charitable division.

in fund-raising and community out-
reach, Gould will develop the com-
munities surrounding the company's
properties.
"Celebrating our 25-year anniver-
sary this year in Central Florida, we
saw an incredible opportunity to es-
tablish a foundation that would give
back to the communities that have con-
tributed to our success," said Deborah
Linden, CEO. "Pam's extensive expe-
rience in foundation management
makes her ideally suited to lead the Is-
land One Resorts Foundation."
Previously, Gould was president of
the Health Central Foundation. She
was a member of the executive team
of Health Central hospital in Ocoee.
She increased donations to the Health
Central Foundation 10 fold in five
years, creating partnerships and affin-
ity membership programs.

Local inventor speaks at Rotary meeting


Windermere resident Bill Kitchen
is an inventive genius and man of
many talents and skills. He is a mem-
ber of the Windermere Rotary Club
and was introduced to it by an old
friend Joseph Judge, past president
of the Rotary Club of Celebration.
Kitchen spoke to the Windermere
Rotary Club at its meeting Feb. 13. .
Rotary spokesman Bill Criswell
said the phrase, "if you can dream it
you can to it" pretty well describes
Kitchen's active life.
After graduating from Temple Uni-
versity in Philadelphia, Kitchen
founded his own broadcast engineer-
ing firm to build radio and television
stations. Eventually, he bought his
first radio station in Chattanooga,
Tenn., and added six more stations.
He sold his broadcast group in 1990.
His hobby as a professional sky-
diver with more than 500 jumps start-
ed a new career as a successful in-
ventor of thrilling amusement rides
that are in use worldwide and often
featured on the Discovery Channel.
The Sky Venture Sky Diving Wind
Tunnel located across from Universal


Studios has been his most rewarding
and successful invention. Kitchen said
he has six patents pending. Current-
ly, he is working on a new roller
coaster ride. Inventions such as his
push the entertainment envelope,
Criswell said.
To conclude his talk, Kitchen de-
scribed the U.S. Patent procedure and
showed a PowerPoint presentation
that challenged fellow Rotarians to
"start dreaming" and become inven-
tors.
With proceeds from its fall fund-
raiser Lobster, Laughter and Lend a
Hand, the club presented a check for
$3,000 to Linda Gurian and her hus-
band, Richard, of the Leukemia and
Lymphoma Society.
Gurian told club members they
should take great pride in knowing
their donation would be part of the
solution to finding a cure for blood
cancers.
The Windermere Rotary Club
meets Tuesday mornings for break-
fast at Windermere Town Hall. For
more information, call Coert
Voorhees at 407-876-6897.

Oakland


Oakland police chief presents annual report


By Amy Quesinberry

Police Chief Tim Driscoll recently
presented to the Oakland Town Com-
mission his 2006 annual report, which
includes crime statistics, the depart-
ment's activities last year and its goals
for the coming year. His report also
contained photographs and information
about the police administration, offi-
cers, reserve officers and crossing
guards.
The 2006 report is available on
compact disc at the Oakland Police
Department and is included in a wel-
come packet for all new residents
moving into the town.

Community
involvement
"The Oakland Police Department
continues to provide more communi-
ty policing services than any other
agency in the area its size," Driscoll
wrote in an accompanying letter to
Mayor Kathy Stark.
The OPD is involved with commu-
nity and homeowners association
meetings; offers the Ident-A-Kid, I
Prevent Crime, Neighborhood Watch
and House Watch programs; conducts
senior citizen, business and home se-
curity checks and golf cart registra-
tions; holds child safety seat inspec-
tions; assists with 5K runs and spon-
sors Easter egg hunts. In 2006, the de-
partment initiated the File of Life pro-
gram and participated in the Nation-
al Night Out program.
Officers also present several school
programs at Oakland Avenue Char-
ter School, including bullying, Hal-
loween safety and Stranger Danger;
assist with mentoring; and host a
year-end child safety fair. Chief
Driscoll also presents training to teach-
ers at the beginning of the school year
on aggressive student behavior.
During the end of 2006, the de-
partment began working hard on po-
lice accreditation, in which a law-en-

forcement agency is given approval
by an official review board after the
agency has met specific standards.
"A long-term goal of five years ago
was to upgrade services, personnel
and the facility in an effort to meet
accreditation standards," Driscoll
wrote. "We continue on pace to meet
this goal."
Identifying future needs of police
employees was also addressed in
2006. Because Oakland's employees
are the lowest paid in Orange Coun-
ty with a less-than-average retirement
system, Driscoll said, officers fre-
quently move on to other local agen-
cies after obtaining experience.
"Officer retention and benefits must
be addressed in 2007," Driscoll said.

Crime in 2006
"The town of Oakland in 2005 ex-
perienced the highest spike in total
crimes incomparison to the last nine
years," Driscoll wrote. "...The crime
rate in 2006 was the lowest rate dur-
ing this same nine-year reporting pe-
riod."
Violent crime fell 80 percent, in
part, because the total number of ag-
gravated assault cases fell from 13 in
2005 to two in 2006. Both aggravat-
ed assault cases and one robbery case,
which comprise the total violent
crimes last year, were all closed by
arrest, the chief said.
Despite the high number of aggra-
vated assault cases in 2005, "histori-
cally, in Oakland, crimes of homicide,
rape, robbery and aggravated assault
have been either non-existent or very
few in numbers," Driscoll said.
Property crimes fell from 63 in 2005
to 39 in 2006.
Last year, Chief Driscoll developed
a new position for the department. A
police detective has been a necessity
for several years, he said, and as Oak-
land has grown, "the need for one de-
tective to investigate crimes became vi-
tal."


Rent Oakland
meeting hall
Residents and organizations can rent
the Oakland meeting hall on North
Tubb Street. Rental includes use of
the kitchen facilities and a seating ca-
pacity of 108.
To download a rental contract and
price list, go to www.oaktownusa.com
and click on "meeting hall facility."
For information, call Oakland Town
Hall at 407-656-1117.


The police department cleared 100
percent of its violent crimes and 12.8
percent of its property crimes. It re-
covered 58.39 percent of the total
property value reported.
According to the chief's annual re-
port, Oakland has a nine-year aver-
age violent crime rate of 4.39, com-
pared to the 2005 national rate of 4.69
and Florida rate of 7.08. Oakland's
average property crime rate during the
last nine years is 35.75, compared to
the national rate of 34.29 and the Flori-
da rate of 40.08. Oakland's average
total crime rate is 40.14, compared to
the national rate of 38.98 and the Flori-
da rate of 48.91.

Reducing crashes
The department made specific ef-
forts in 2006 regarding traffic crash-
es.
"Oakland has within its jurisdiction
a very dangerous stretch of roadway
on Colonial Drive between Florida's
Turnpike and the Lake County line,"
Driscoll wrote. "Along this one-and-
one-half mile of pavement, two fatal-
ities occurred in 2005."
Nearly 75 percent of all traffic
crashes in Oakland occur along this
section of highway, he added.
Police officers organized an initia-
tive in May to address this issue and
handed out traffic safety material dur-
ing stops. In June 2006, no traffic
crashes were reported - the first
month in five years.
There were no traffic fatalities in
2006, and traffic crash reports de-
creased from 126 to 87 (31 percent).
"Entering 2007, the department will
continue a proactive approach to crime
while addressing community needs.
Officers will continue to monitor traf-
fic trends and help solve problems as
they develop," Driscoll wrote. "Offi-
cers look forward to new challenges in
2007 and consider it a privilege to
serve the people of Oakland."


Scouts invited to
volunteer at ONP
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.
Many opportunities exist for com-
pleting a project that would benefit
the community and ONP visitors.

Justice prevails in Oakbowl
The Oakland Presbyterian Church recently held its 6th annual flag football contest in Winter Garden. This
year's winning team was captained by Jimmy Justice. The halftime entertainment featured a parade of
bikes and dogs, led by the grand marshal, George Reaves. Above is the post-game presentation of the cov-
eted trophy.


Preserve welcomes colorful visitor


An Eastern Bluebird was recently
seen for the first time at the Oakland
Nature Preserve. The bird was ob-
served in the upland section of the pre-
serve as it perched in a slash pine. Lat-
er, it splashed around in the birdbath
near the office and showed off its bril-
liant blue plumage.
This sighting is a sign that the on-
going restoration is working. Eastern
Bluebirds need insects and fruit to sur-


vive, and these are abundant in natu-
ral areas such as the preserve. They
also prefer forest edges and open
forests during the winter, which is the
type of habitat ONP is creating.
Biosphere Consulting Inc. donated
three bluebird nesting boxes after hear-
ing about the sighting in an effort to
attract nesting pairs. ONP officials are
monitoring them for signs of activity.
The Eastern Bluebird is approxi-


mately six inches long and lives in
Florida year-round. Their hunched,
beak-downward posture is a notice-
able feature.
ONP is also doing its part to attract
wildlife by planting native vegetation
that produces natural food and re-
moving non-native plant species.
For a complete list of the other birds
identified at the preserve, go to oak-
landnaturepreserve.org.

Knitting is more than sweaters and hats - it's a way to help others


- It all started as
therapy, but a local Parkinson's
sufferer started selling her
needlework projects to help
others with the disease.

By Kathy Aber

Parkinson's sufferer Lynne Koch of Winder-
mere has found a unique way to raise awareness
for her disease, one that has taken over her life.
"Parkinson's has come out of hiding," Koch
said in a recent interview with The West Orange
Times. "It used to be thought of as only an old per-
son's disease. Now it's not just the shakes that
someone in their 90s gets."
Koch was 45 when she was diagnosed with .
the disease in 1992.
She had always enjoyed knitting, but as her
motor control problems got worse she had to give.
up her hobby.
Shortly after moving to Florida, Koch started
seeing a neurologist in Tampa.
"He gave me a new lease on life," she said.
Through a treatment he prescribed, she re- .
gained the use of her hands and started knitting
again. At first, this was a way to stay busy, but ',
it has grown into her special way of saying thanks.
"It helps me stay flexible. It might take me half
an hour to do a row, but that's better than doing
nothing," she said. "It makes your hands move."
Koch knits scarves, headbands, handbags, dish-
cloths, shawls and dog sweaters in various pat- * , . -
tems and out of novelty and specialty yams and
started selling her needlework to help other
Parkinson's patients. For the past two years, she
has raised $3,000 and donated the proceeds to
the University of South Florida Movement Dis-
order Center in Tampa.
The funds were earmarked for a community
outreach program for Parkinson's patients and
their caregivers.
"It's enough to pay for an exercise class for
one year for older people in Tai Chi," she said
proudly.
"I was hoping to make $500 but was aston- Lynne Koch is so happ.
ished I could make $3,000 two years in a row," 'enough movement in her \
she said. by of knitting. She crea
But Parkinson's disease is slowing' down her shawls, headbands, dog sv
knitting because she's having fewer "good hours er items, which she sells t
in a day." ers with her disease.
This year, some of her golfing friends have
stepped forward to help.
Koch is a member of the Windermere Country Club Women's Golf Asso-
ciation. When the group planned its annual 9-hole invitational tournament
Feb. 6, the members added a raffle to further benefit the USF Movement Dis-
order Center. The event raised more than $700 to add to Koch's knitting sales.
Eden Feldman, outreach coordinator for the USF Movement Disorder Cen-
ter, wrote a letter to the %\ omen's golf group telling members how important
Koch's efforts have been to their patients in New Port Richey where the ex-
ercise classes are held.
"Lynne also served as an inspirational speaker in October at our annual Pa-
tient Care Symposium. She encouraged patients to live their lives and stay
active, sharing her own experiences, such as golfing, knitting and traveling,"
Feldman wrote.
She said several patients came up after Koch's speech to meet and thank their
benefactor.
With her letter, Feldman attached testimonials from patients in the Tai Chi
classes.
One patient wrote: "Before taking Tai Chi classes, walking any distance
was difficult. Just to walk across the street to the mailbox, approximately 100
feet, would tire me out with pain in my legs and lower back. This happened
even after taking my medicine. Since studying Tai Chi and doing it virtually
every day, I am now walking about eight-tenths of a mile around our neigh-
borhood."
Koch knows firsthand how difficult adapting to life with Parkinson's can be.
When she was diagnosed in 1992, she and her husband and two children,
ages 13 and 11, had just moved to England from California.
For the previous three years, she had been a public relations manager for Na-
tional Semiconductor.
Shortly after the move, she noticed her leg was "dragging," and she started
losing motor control in her hands.
At first, doctors thought she was suffering from exhaustion, but soon they
arrived at the Parkinson's diagnosis.
The disease affects the part of the brain that supplies dopamine, which sig-
nals the muscles to move.
"By the time you're diagnosed, you've lost 80 percent of the dopamine in
your brain," Koch said.
The first five years were not bad at all. Koch said she was even able to lead
a walking group a couple of times a month.
But after five years, she started.taking more widely used Parkinson's drugs,
including levadopa in a variety of combinations.
One of the early drugs gave her severe hallucinations.


y that she has rega
hands to continue her
tes specialty handb
eaters and a variety ol
o raise money to help


Fortunately, there have been improvements
in the 15 years since her diagnosis and new drugs
are being invented to help patients use existing
: drugs more efficiently.
"I was having great success with one drug
when my neurologist said a study showed pa-
tients were getting crumbling heart valves," said
Koch.
Without the drug, her condition started dete-
riorating. Despite pleading, Koch said, the doc-
S' tor would not let her continue the drug because
of the side effects. Other combinations of med-
ications were prescribed.
For the past year and a half, Koch has been in
a trial study for a pharmaceutical company. She
has heard that another trial might soon be avail-
S.' able for a drug pump (similar to the type used by
S..some diabetics) that would help release the lev-
adopa more consistently.
"This might not help in my lifetime," said
Koch, "but it will help someone else."
Before the Parkinson's, Koch was very ath-
letic. She piloted a plane, parachuted, skied (both
snow and water), scuba dived, studied judo and
played hockey and squash.
"Obviously, I don't do any of those things
now, but I look back on them with affection,"
Koch said.
She carries a logbook to chart when and how
much of the drugs she takes.
"Otherwise, it's too confusing," she said.
"With golf, in particular, if I don't take enough
medicine I can't walk, but if I take too much I can't
stand still - I practically go with the ball.
"In my case, it's not the Parkinson's that caus-
es the tremors, it's the drugs."
Still Koch declares golf is a wonderful outlet.
She used to play right-handed but had to learn
to play left-handed after the onset of Parkin-
son's. Some days she can play 18 holes, but most
days she has only enough stamina for nine.
Koch admits some days are better than oth-
ers. On bad days, she has trouble getting out of
bed and preparing for the day ahead.
"The disease is pretty awful. The trick is not
letting the bad days get you down," she said.
For those days, her husband, Dave, is ready
ined to help.
hob- "My husband was the head of an internation-
ags, al company and retired early so that we would
f oth- have more time to do things together," Koch
oth- said to the Times. "He told me, 'I didn't just
prormsejr veuer


promisefor better.
She says it's hard to ask for help, but she's no
longer embarrassed to ask for a wheelchair.
When she's having a good day, Koch keeps an active schedule.
"I do my best to keep going," said Koch. "It's not going to get any better,
so you might as well enjoy it."
She's a member of the West Orange Women and participates in the daytime
bridge and couples bridge groups. She attends Resurrection Catholic Church,
enjoys baking bread and cakes and often volunteers to drive a neighbor's chil-
dren to school with her husband as her backup.
Her experience with Parkinson's has shownKoch how important it is to
have people around who are encouraging and supportive.
"It means the world," she said.
For Koch, a positive, can-do attitude comes naturally.
"I always look at the. cup half full and not half empty," she said.
"I'm here. I chat with my husband. I bake. I travel. I play bridge. I walk my
dog. I give talks.
"If I am able to encourage one other person or their caregiver - good."
Koch will continue to knit and donate the proceeds to the Tampa center but
on a smaller scale, making more specially designed items. She already has
two orders for shawls knitted from wool and ribbon yarn that take several
weeks to make.

Staying busy and active is an ongoing goal for Lynne Koch. She says
golf is a wonderful outlet even if she can only play 9 holes most days.
In a recent event sponsored by the Windermere Country Club Wom-
en's Golf Association, Koch captured a closest-to-the-pin award and was
a member of the winning team.


She sometimes walks with an unsteady gait and had to learn to play left-
handed, but Lynne Koch doesn't let her Parkinson's disease stop her
from playing golf.


Lynne Koch looks over the silent auction table set up during the Windermere Country Club
Women's Golf Association Invitational Feb. 6. The event raised $700 that will be donated to the
Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center in Tampa.


Windermere resident Lynne Koch (left) presents a check for $3,000 to Eden Feldman, outreach coordinator for the Parkin-
son's Disease and Movement Disorders Center at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Koch, who was diagnosed
with Parkinson's disease 15 years ago, knits and has been selling her needlework projects to raise funds to support
an exercise class in Tai Chi for other Parkinson's patients and their caregivers. She says this is her way of saying
thanks for recent improvement in her condition that is enabling her to knit again.

Simone Vranov, a 14-year-old Win-
dermere resident, made waves last
week by winning the Melbourne Ju-
nior Super Series tennis tournament as
a competitor in the girls 18-year-old
division.
Vranov cruised through her open-
ing-round match with a 6-0, 6-1 vic-
tory. Her following match vs.
Bradleigh Lore proved to be much
tougher, as Vranov would find herself
down 5-1 after dropping the first set
6-1.
Refusing to give up, Vranov put
pressure on her opponent and fought
back to even the second-set score at 5-
5. Vranov broke serve and served out
the set at 7-5 to force the deciding set.
Feeling in control and confident,
Vranov stormed out to a 2-love lead
in the third set, when the length of the
match took its toll and she fell from
severe leg cramps in the middle of a
point.
Father and Coach Andre Brown said
his daughter's agony was clear and that
it hindered her ability to move on the
court. Lore took advantage of Vranov's
injury to take a 4-2 lead.
Out of desperation, Vranov took an
injury time out. Brown said he con-
templated defaulting her, but she
fought back tears and insisted on fin-
ishing the match.
After changing her strategy to rely on
serve-and-volleys and strong service
returns, Vranov tied it up at four games
apiece. Just when it seemed she might
take control, Vranov suffered another
bout of leg cramps and called another

Dubsdread Golf Club to
begin renovations
The city of Orlando is currently mak-
ing final preparations for renovation of
historic Dubsdread Golf Course in Col-
lege Park.
The 1924 public course will be clos-
ing in mid-March and is scheduled to re-
open in November 2007. The eight-
month construction project will include
complete reconstruction of the course's
greens, tees and fairways. In addition,
the renovation will include new water-
ways and drainage systems to improve
stormwater management in the neigh-
borhoods surrounding the golf course
and the water quality in Little Lake
Fairview.
The goal of the project is to preserve
the original character and history of the
18-hole layout, while adding length and
improving playability for golfers of all
ability levels, said Mayor Buddy Dyer.
When Dubsdread reopens later this
year, the course will have much the
same look and feel as the original but
with new turf, new drainage and a new
irrigation system.
All of the greens, tees and sand
bunkers will be reconstructed and
golfers can expect more consistent and
higher quality playing conditions.
According to District 3 City Com-
missioner Robert Stuart, the renova-
tion of the course will have significant
benefits for the entire neighborhood not
just golfers. "We're preserving a major
piece of community open space and
eliminated serious drainage problems
that have plagued this area for years,"
said Stuart.
Once the course is reopened, Dubs-
dread will continue to be accessible to
the public with emphasis on providing
affordable public golf, group outings,
tournaments and junior golf programs.
The Tap.Room at Dubsdread, a pub-
lic restaurant and catering facility lo-
cated on the golf course, will remain
open and in full operation while the
course is being renovated. The Tap
Room is on Par Street just east of Edge-
water Drive.
Before the renovation begins, some
of the regular patrons are hosting a
farewell golf tournament to honor the
old course one more time. For more in-
formation on the March event call the
pro shop at 407-246-2551 or go to the
Web site www.dubsdreadgolf.com.
Proceeds from the tournament will ben-
efit the Orlando Minority Youth Golf
Association.

Ten-year-old Emma Tum Suden did not bring a 'regular'show-and-tell
item to Ocoee Elementary School. Instead, she brought a real cow
skull. She said: 'My older brother Chris and I visited our grandparents'
farm in Oklahoma, and in the summer of 2003, we brought home a dif-
ferent kind of souvenir. My brother and I didn't only just keep the skull,
we also kept some other unknown parts of the cow. It has made for great

The tour included very tactile,
hands-on experiencing of the pieces
as students were allowed to touch,
climb and even play on the sculptures.
Bach estimates that Isleworth cur-

display that is for sale. Most of it can
be viewed from the golf course, as
there is no public access.
This trip was a great example of
how the school and our community

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

NAZABENE


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

Students view sculptures
Windermere Prep fifth- and sixth-
grade art elective classes recently had
the opportunity to view sculpture in its
environment.
Art teacher Dallas Bach took both
classes on an excursion to the sculp-
ture exhibit at Isleworth.
"This was an amazing opportunity to
see sophisticated sculpture in an out-
door setting rather than a museum
setting," said Bach.
The field trip was the culmination
of a two-week study of the late Keith
Haring, a New York artist who died in
1990. Not only did the students get to
view his work, but they also saw the
