Oakland wants to know what


Residents will get a
town survey at the end of
the month.

By Amy Quesinberry

Oakland officials have been work-
ing on a citizens survey designed to
improve town services, and its con-
tents were discussed at last week's
regular Town Commission meeting.
Residents cai expect to receive their
copy at the end of the month, possibly
with the water bill.
Town Manager Maureen Rischitel-
li told The West Orange Times on
Monday that town staff expects the
returned surveys to "give us an idea of
where we might be lacking services,
where we need to improve services
and what people are willing to pay for
services."
Residents will have approximately
a month to complete and turn in their
forms.
Copies of the survey will also be
available at Oakland Town Hall and the
Oakland Post Office.
In other business, the elected offi-
cials:


discussed a Triple A Festival
(African-American Arts) being pro-
posed by Commissioner Joseph Mc-
Mullen, who was not at last Tuesday' s
meeting. The commission reviewed a
letter and preliminary budget sheet
from McMullen outlining his plan for
the event, set for June 16. Planned to
be held in conjunction with other June-
teenth celebrations, the festival will
represent all areas of artistic expression
- visual art, music and drama, pro--
duced and presented by black artists in
the state. t
discussed the possibility of an
ethics policy resolution and decided
to pursue an ordinance instead. In res-
olution form, the policy would apply
to the sitting board of commissioners
only and not to future elected officials.
Town Manager Maureen Rischitelli
will bring an update to the next com-
mission meeting. The town of Oak-
land ethics policy would identify three
main topics: limiting campaign con-
tributions to $100 per individual
donor, restricting vendor gifts and vol-
unteering to make public any conflicts
with issues that come before the com-
mission.
passed a utility agreement resolu-
tion that documents the town's finan-

ion for the project that has an esti-
mated cost of $200,000.

Windermere approves plan for Lake Down swimming area


By Kathy Aber

Windermere children may have a
new swimming spot this summer.
The Windermere Town Council ap-
proved plans for a swimming area at
the end of Fourth Avenue during its
meeting last Tuesday.
Parks and Recreation Committee
Member Tracy Mitchell brought the
council a design for a 55- by 75-foot
roped-off swim area in Lake Down
that also includes park benches, a pic-
nic table and adult swing on the ad-
jacent shore. The council approved
transferring $960 budgeted for sig-
nage to the actual project cost because
the area to be cleared, 110 feet, is
greater than expected. The total pro-
ject cost, including clearing and rope
with buoys, is $4,460. The town has
applied for a grant for this work.
The town is also working on a walk-
ing trail along the right-of-way on the
shore between Third and Fifth avenues


Ocoee to begin
The Ocoee Police Department will
start a new crime-prevention program
beginning next month. The program,
Neighbors on Watch (NOW), is a col-
lective effort between the police de-
partment and trained citizen-volunteers
to reduce crime through additional vis-
ibility and to improve the quality of life
in the community by offering increased
services.
Volunteers will undergo a criminal
check and training prior to being al-


on Lake Down. Town Manager Ce-
cilia Bernier will have a proposal from
Professional Engineering Consultants
next month.
In other business, the town coun-
cil:
authorized the town manager to
begin discussions with Orange Coun-
ty and city of Ocoee staff on the via-
bility of bringing a sewer system to
Windermere. Bernier said this would
be a fact-finding mission that would in-
clude principals from B&H Consul-
tants, Jim and Janet Shira. Council
Member Jennifer Roper clarified that
the discussions will include.sewer ser-
vice for the entire town, including both
residential and downtown business
development. The council encouraged
Bernier to include Jim Clark, who
heads a town committee to study pol-
lution from septic tanks, and Long-
range Planning Committee member
Roger Gatlin as additional resources.

new crime-prevention program


lowed to participate in this program.
NOW allows city resident volunteers
to check out a specially marked vehicle
to patrol their neighborhoods. These
volunteers will not take any enforce-
ment action, but they will report crim-
inal activity and code violations to the
Ocoee Police Department.
According to Sgt. Randy Conyers,
"Citizen cooperation with the police
department puts persons committing
crimes on notice that the citizens not


only support the police department in
fighting crime but are actively work-
ing with the police to do so."
The first NOW volunteers will be-
gin their training April 8 by participat-
ing in the OPD's Citizen Police Acade-
my.
This collective effort works hand-in-
hand with Neighborhood Crime Watch.

gram, call the Ocoee Police Depart-
ment at 407-905-3160.


Election results


Ocoee Mayor Vandergrift

wins another 3-year term


By Mary Anne Swickerath

Scott Vandergrift, who has,
served as mayor of Ocoee since
1992, won a new three-year term
last week, defeating challenger
Randy Freeman 1,496 votes to
780. Vandergrift won by a mar-
gin of 66 percent.
This 2,276 total number of
,votes represents only 13.5 percent
of registered Ocoee voters.
District 1 Commissioner Gary
Hood and District 4 Commis-
sioner Rusty Johnson were re-
turned to office for three more
years without having drawn any
opposition.
Mayor Vandergrift told The
West Orange Times last week that


he was happy to be re-elected by
Ocoee voters in the citywide con-
test and will continue to work on
the challenging issues facing the
city.
He said he had sat down with
Freeman to discuss a "several-
pronged approach" to dealing with
the Orange County School Board.
"We would like the School
Board to take a more negotiable
stance," he said, in working with
the city on school issues, such as
rezonings and the rebuilding of
Evans High School.
By districts, the voter turnout
was 16 percent in District 1, 19
percent in District 2, 10 percent
in District 3 and 15.5 percent in
District 4.


Windermere voters elect

Briggs, Hovey and Sprick
12 of 17 charter amendments approved


By Kathy Aber

Windermere voters re-elected
incumbent Robert Sprick and elect-
ed political newcomers John Brig-
gs and Bums Hovey to the Town
Council last Tuesday. Voters also
approved 12 of the 17 Town Char-
ter amendments.
Of the town's approximately
1,500 registered voters, only 402,
or 25 percent, cast ballots. There
were 365 votes cast at Town Hall.
Another 65 were absentee ballots,
and five votes were recorded via
touch screen.
In the open race for the Town
Council, Sprick garnered the most
votes, 313, or 29.25 percent of
those cast.
'Hovev was a-close second with
3018 t2S 79 percent Briggs was
elected with 280 votes (26.17 per-
cent).
Former Council Member Dennis
Brabec received 169 votes (15.79
percent)
All three elected officials will
begin two-year unpaid terms.
Sprick has served for 15 months. He
was first appointed to fill a vacan-
cy and later elected for a year to
complete the remainder of the
term.
Following the election, Sprick
told The West Orange Times, "I
am very happy to win re-election,
and I thank the Windermere voters.
"I'm even more happy with the
results of the charter amendment
vote 12 of the 17 amendments
passed. I would like to publicly
thank Charter Review Committee


members Bill Osborne, Thellie
Roper, Vera Carter, Donnie Strube
and John Spears for all their hard
work over the past year revising
the charter.
"While I opposed the five
amendments that were ultimately
defeated, I would like to empha-
size my continued support of the un-
derlying issues of some of those
five amendments. Specifically, I
continue to have strong reserva-
tions about annexation and land
conveyance issues and I am con-
fident the new Town Council will
continue having these strong reser-
vations about annexation and con-
veyance."
Briggs said he is proud to have
been elected.
"Some of the biggest challenges
Windermere has ever faced areon
the horizon," said Briggs, "and I
feel honored that the town resi-
dents have asked me to represent
them in evaluating these challenges
and working out a path for Win-
dermere to follow that will be the
most favorable for all concerned."'
Hovey told the Times he felt
great about his election to the coun-
cil.
"Hopefully, the expectations the
townspeople have placed in me
will be met," he said. He added
that he planned to take the same
course of action the council has
been taking to deal with the chal-
lenging issues facing the town.
Voters approved charter Amend-
ment 1 (312 votes for, 80 against)

Buchanan, Bouler and Sharman

win Winter Garden elections
District 4 results, though, could be disputed


By Michael Laval

Bob Buchanan defeated long-
time incumbent Theo Graham for
the District 2 seat, while Harold
Bouler handily beat out Charlie
Mae Wilder in the District 3 race.
Incumbent Colin Sharman seem-
ingly avoided a run-off in the Dis-
trict 4 election by only one vote,
but challenger Jim Gustino said
he might challenge the official re-
sults.
District 2 voters said farewell
to Graham, who had served 20
non-consecutive years on the City
Commission. After the city Can-
vassing Board counted absentee
and provisional ballots last Fri-
day, Buchanan earned a 236-194
victory with 54.9 percent of the
vote.
District 2 led the city in voter
turnout with 20 percent of its reg-
istered voters participating in the
March 13 municipal election.
Buchanan told The West Or-
ange Times last week he was ex-
cited to have defeated someone
who has been in office as long as
Graham.
"We ran a real nice, clean race,
and I'd like to thank Theo for that
and continue to work together for
the betterment of Winter Garden,"
he said. "My biggest priority is to
be transparent and available to
anyone who has concerns in Dis-


trict 2."
Bouler ran away with the Dis-
trict 3 race, taking 72 percent of the
vote in a 156-60 landslide victo-
vy. He will replace Wilder, who
the commission appointed last
year to serve the remainder of the
late Mildred Dixon's term. Only
11 percent of District 3 voters cast
ballots in last week's election.
The only suspense from last Fri-
day's Canvassing Board meeting
resulted from whether the four-
man District 4 race would result in
a runoff between Sharman and
Gustino.
When the polls closed March
13, Sharman held a 226-198 lead.
With 45.38 percent of the vote go-
ing to Sharman and 39.76 be-
longing to Gustino, a run-off
seemed likely.
Sharman, though, won the elec-
tion outright by collecting 106 ab-
sentee and provisional ballots last
Friday to claim 50.15 percent of
the total vote to Gustino's 34.44
percent. A single vote pushed
Sharman past the 50 percent need-
ed to avoid a run-off. He finished
with 332 votes, followed by Gusti-
no (228), Rod Reynolds (84) and
Don Miller (18).
Eleven percent of District 4 vot-
ers turned out for the election.
Sharman, who the commission

Castle & Cooke begins site development at Oakland Park est. 1844


" Castle & Cooke Florida, a sub-
sidiary of Castle & Cooke Mainland
Communities, has begun site devel-
opment at Oakland Park est. 1844, a
new community of traditional homes
to be built on the south shore of Lake
Apopka.
: The planners of Oakland Park pro-
fess their aim is to evoke a sense of
history through its community layout,
Florida vernacular architecture and
amenities. Among those features is
Meadow Marsh, a 131-year-old estate
home that will serve as a civic build-
ing for community gatherings.
Meadow Marsh originally served
as the homestead for the Tilden fam-
ily, one of West Orange County's pi-
oneer families. It is listed on the Na-
tional Register of Historic Places.
Prices in Oakland Park will begin
in the $400s. A total of 64 homesites
will be available in Phase I/A. An ad-
ditional 110 homesites will be avail-
able in Phase I/B, providing a total of
174 Phase I homesites. The 258-acre
community is designed to ultimately
include 750 residential units, 35,000
square feet of neighborhood retail ser-
vices, additional civic facilities and a
marina.
Sales are expected to begin in May.
The community will have four
builders: Bradford Building Corp.,
Brentwood Custom Homes, Castle &
Cooke Homes and Goerhing & Mor-
gan. Each builder has an extensive
background of building in luxury
home communities throughout
metropolitan Orlando.
'r Home building in Oakland Park will
be guided by an architectural pattern
book developed by Castle & Cooke.
The pattern book is drawn in part from
what is described as the heritage in the
neighboring communities of Winter
Garden and Oakland.
.,Both towns boast neighborhoods
that are diverse and unique in charac-
ter. In Oakland Park, the pattern book
will guide buyers through their choic-
es of styles, ranging from Colonial
Revival and Craftsman to Folk Vic-
torian, to Florida Vernacular and Span-
ish Colonial.
John Rinehart, vice president of
Castle & Cooke, said Oakland Park
Will be a sustainable, green community
developed using the guiding princi-
ples of traditional neighborhood de-
velopment (TND). The company is
working with the Florida Green Build-
ing Coalition to ensure all structures
tneet its certification requirements.
Landscaping will be water conscious
and minimize the community's im-
pact on water supplies.
Additionally, Oakland Park will fea-
ture "dark-sky. lighting" throughout
the community. These downward fo-
cusing street lights illuminate the com-
munity but help prevent light pollu-
tion at night. All of Oakland Park's
environmental features have been writ-
ten into the community's deed re-
strictions.
Rinehart said, "Being green is in
Oakland Park's DNA."
In TND communities, houses of
varying sizes are built side-by-side on
each street, enhancing the feeling of
growth over time. Homes will be pre-
dominately serviced by a rear alley,
keeping streetscapes inviting for walk-
ing, jogging or biking.
The principles for TND encourage
the art of place-making, which em-
phasizes the design of civic spaces that
serve as community gathering points.
Place-making features in Oakland
Park include McKinnon Square, a tra-
ditional town square that will be sur-
rounded by 35,000 square feet of
neighborhood retail space, providing
room for a general store and other re-
tail services. The square will be ac-
cessible via pedestrian pathways and
-will be located on Oakland Avenue.
Union Club will serve as a neigh-
borhood gathering spot with a com-

munity pool, wellness center and a
lakefront grill/eatery. Castle & Cooke
will also seek regulatory approval for
a community marina on Lake Apop-
ka.
The West Orange Trail traverses
Oakland Park and will put residents
within easy biking distance of neigh-
borhood schools and downtown Win-
ter Garden.
Lake Apopka is currently being re-
stored by state and federal authorities
after years of environmental degrada-
tion. Oakland Park will support the
restoration of the lake by restoring its
one-third-mile shoreline in conjunc-
tion with a 26-acre community park.
Much of Oakland Park is situated on
a bluff that lies 30 feet above the shore-
line, providing the community with


outstanding views.
Mona Phipps, president of the
Friends of Lake Apopka, said: "When
you think of Florida's history, you
think of the environment and the pio-
neers who fought to tame it and the
tourists who flock here to enjoy it. As
a state and a community, the envi-
ronment is an important part of who we
are. Lake Apopka, once the bass fish-
ing capital of the world, has always
offered an outstanding natural expe-
rience from morning bird calls to
evening sunsets."
She added: "It has always been a
privilege to work with a developer
who understands that you can create a
place like Oakland Park that becomes
part of the surrounding community
without having a negative impact. Cas-


tle and Cooke took the lead and em-
braced our mission for the restoration
of Lake Apopka. They are restoring
one-third of a mile of the lakefront and
creating a park that allows residents a
place to come and enjoy this precious
natural resource."
In addition, Oakland Park will be
dotted with 14 small parks and civic
spaces that are planned to create a'
broad and diverse public realm with-
in the community.
To reach Oakland Park, take Plant
Street west from State Road 429. Fol-
low Plant Street through downtown
Winter Garden until it becomes Oak-
land Avenue. Go past Tildenville
School Road. The sales center, which'
is scheduled to open in May, is on the
right.

Letters to the editor


From our archives

Old Times


Editor,

I feel compelled to respond to a recent article in the Or-
lando Sentinel on the proposed Lake County Water Au-
thority Nutrient Reduction Facility (NuRF) on the CC
Ranch property, especially since the position of the
Friends of Lake Apopka (FOLA) was misquoted.
We are not opposed to the NuRF project. We have
not studied the science behind it. Our only questions re-
garding the science concern the date of the data being used
and where the data was collected in relation to the pro-
posed NuRF project site. Phosphorous levels in Lake
Apopka are now at 70ppm and continue to decline. The
lower the phosphorous levels, the lower the efficiency and
cost-effectiveness of the project. And, if the data is not
being collected at the appropriate locations, it is possi-
ble that phosphorous loadings into the canal from sources
other than Lake Apopka will have the same negative im-
pacts on the efficacy of the project.
What we are opposed to is the location of the project.


The CC Ranch, which is historically a wet prairie, is the
only tract of land of any size in the 19,000-acre North Shore
Restoration Area that was never tilled for farming. The
CC Ranch was purchased in 1992 with Preservation 2000
funds, a state program created to protect Florida's unique
and fragile ecosystems. This was well before the north
shore farm buyout.
The NuRF plant is basically an industrial facility re-
quiring the excavation of settling ponds, the construc-
tion of buildings to house the centrifuges that will run 24
hours a day, seven days a week, and daily truck traffic.
Locating this industrial facility on the CC Ranch puts
the Lake County Water Authority in the unique position
of spending millions of taxpayer dollars to destroy a rare
natural habitat that was acquired with taxpayer dollars to
protect.

Volunteers needed for Easter Food For Families


Dear Friends,

Food For Families began.over 14 years ago as a small
effort by myself and a few other Publix employees to use,
rather than waste, perishable food at their store when they
close for the holidays. Over the past few years, the program
has grown significantly and was able to help over 800 fam-
ilies in the West Orange area this past Christmas 2006.
The program functions entirely with volunteers (over
500) who coordinate and actually conduct the donation, col-
lection, sorting, packaging and delivery of the food. Vol-
unteers also collect the names of needy families who will
receive the donations. The list of needy families is com-
piled with information obtained from local schools, law en-
forcement agencies, churches and word of mouth. All
names are strictly referrals; there are no sign-up lists.
Publix Supermarkets donate more than two tractor-trail-
er loads of merchandise from their warehouses in Lakeland
and Orlando. Also, 15 Publix Supermarkets in Orange


Rep. Brian Nelson coi
Editor:

A good deal of media attention has been paid in recent
weeks to the Special Teachers Are Rewarded (STAR)
plan, which offers performance-based bonuses to public
schoolteachers. STAR has taken heat as teachers and oth-
er critics have noted that the plan, as it was originally writ-
ten, based teacher performance and bonuses unfairly on
standardized test scores and did not include measures to
account for other indicators of student progress.
While the plan may not yet be perfect, a number of im-
portant and constructive changes have been made, al-
lowing the state to get closer to an agreement with its
teachers on how they should be compensated for excep-
tional work.'
Leading members of House and Senate education com-
mittees have forged an improved plan, the Merit Award
Plan, which would give more power to local school boards
in deciding the fate of the bonus money.
The new plan, which would apply to teachers and ad-
ministrators, takes the responsibility for defining qualifi-
cation criteria away from the Department of Education, al-
lowing districts a much greater say.
These changes should receive a warm welcome from
teachers, as many of them were upset over the original
STAR plan's oversimplification of student and teacher
performance. At one point, nearly 20 school districts had
held out of the plan, and in some cases, refused the mon-
ey over their objections..
If the new law is signed by the governor quickly, those
school districts would be back in the fold again and receive
a month extension for their school boards to approve the
new plan.

County donate all of their leftover perishables that were not
sold by the end of the holiday sales period, which amounts
to about 30 pick-up truckloads of food. Other contribu-
tors are Heller Brothers Citrus, Conoley Citrus and others.
We also have most local schools, public and private in
West Orange County, participating in food collections or
volunteering their time for community service points.
Our goal is to have community involvement including
families, schools, churches, civic organizations and local
citizens taking time out of their busy holiday schedules to
unite together as a community and reach out with a posi-
tive impact to the less fortunate in our area.
If you are interested in volunteering your time or mak-
ing a donation, please feel free to call one of our volunteers

iments on STAR plan
This also means that each district will have the option
to receive their share of the bonus money, no matter what
their objections were over the STAR program. Those dis-
tricts that still choose to go without the new program can
use a previous local plan but will receive only what they
paid out in merit bonuses last year.
Although standardized test scores have not been com-
pletely removed from the equations, this compromise is
an important step for public education in Florida.
As you already know, teacher salaries have been a prob-
lem in Florida for years, and this legislation shows that
Floridians are committed to getting more money into the
pocketbooks of the teachers who go above and beyond
their duties as educators in preparing our kids for the fu-
ture.
Having watched my own two children go through the
Orange County Public School system, I know what a dif-
ference a thoughtful and dedicated teacher can make, both
inside and outside of the classroom.
With graduation rates frighteningly low, we need these
kinds of teachers more than ever.
The Merit Award Plan is a big step in creating the kind
of schools that students and teachers can both thrive in. These
performance bonuses will go a long way to ensure that
we keep the best and brightest of our teachers and that
our students are able to make the most of their time in
school preparing for a successful future.
If you have any questions on the Merit Award Plan or
any other issue, please contact my office at 407-880-4414.

THE ISSUE OF PRICE

Pricing a house is the most impor-
tant part of the marketing process. You
want to get as much for the property
as you can, but if you set the price too
high, you can frighten off qualified
buyers. Your Realtor can tell you the
selling price of homes comparable to
yours. Pricing strategy depends on
market conditions, and it is different
in a buyers' market than it is in a sell-
ers' market.
When a property fails to sell in a rea-
sonable' period of time, you and your
Realtor should have a frank discussion
to determine whether price is the is-
sue. Your Realtor will also be getting
feedback from other Realtors who have,
shown your home. Remember that
price is only one factor. You might
consider ways you can make the prop-
erty easier for Realtors to show or make
cosmetic improvements that are need-
ed. You should also discuss the current
market conditions. An overoptimistic
asking price may be the problem.
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

Boomer Planning 101
By Rick DiBiasio
CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERS

Know How To Take Your Lumps

If you are about to retire or change jobs, or if your employer is terminating the com-
pany retirement plan, you may be eligible to receive a "lump sum distribution" as de-
fined in the Internal Revenue Code. Such a distribution may be substantial and may rep-
resent the cornerstone of your retirement security.. So it is important to consider your
options carefully before making a decision regarding distributions.
Basically, you are faced with two main options. Should you take a direct distribu-
tion and pay your taxes now? Or should you roll your distribution over into a traditional
Individual Retirement Account (IRA)?
If you decide not to roll the distribution over into a traditional IRA, you must pay
tax on the distribution in the year you receive it. You will, of course, be able to invest
the remainder as you please. The main benefit of paying taxes on your distribution now
is that you may be eligible for special tax treatment. If you were bornm before 1936, you
may be eligible for ten-year tax-averaging on your lump sum distribution. Or, if your
distribution will include shares of your employer's stock, a portion of your distribution
may be eligible for the new lower capital gains tax treatment. If either of these situations
exists, you may be able to pay a lower tax rate than usual on your distribution. If not,
your distribution may be taxed at your ordinary income tax rate so you may want to con-
sider your second option.
Your second option is to roll the distribution over into a traditional IRA. This alter-
native assures that assets will continue to enjoy tax-deferred growth to provide for your
retirement. Under current IRS regulations, you need not begin taking distributions from
your traditional IRA until you reach age 70 1/2.
Here are some facts to keep in mind when faced with the distribution decision.
Only 60 days are permitted between the receipt of your lump sum distribution and
the date of the roll over.
All contributions (pre- and after-tax) and earnings distributed from the employer's
qualified plan may be rolled over.
Regardless of whether it is deductible, it is still possible to make an annual $4,000
(for 2007) IRA contribution, plus a $1,000 catch-up for those who have attained age 50,
to a traditional or Roth IRA account.
Contributions to the IRA may only be made in cash; but, with a rollover transac-
tion, if non-cash assets are received as part of the distribution, they may be rolled into
the IRA (e.g. employer stock or mutual fund shares).
Distributions may be made from a traditional IRA account at any time after age 59
1/2 free of penalty.
The traditional IRA account provides you with an opportunity to continue building
assets during working years through continued tax-deferred compounding. There will be
no tax implications until you begin to take distributions. This continued tax-deferred
growth could mean the difference between your living simply or living well during your
"golden years." Of course, before you decide which strategy best meets your objectives,
it is a good idea to consult with your financial and tax advisors.

Haunted Mansion fan 'dying' for butler's job


Ricky Brigante of
Winter Garden wants to
be the one who gets the
most votes on Career
Builder's Web site to win
the position for a day.

By Amy Quesinberry

Ricky Brigante is "dying" to serve
as a butler at Disney's Haunted Man-
sion. He maintains an entire room in
his house that he's dedicated to the
spooky ride, but he's ready to take on
the entire mansion for a day.
The Winter Garden resident is one
of 20 national finalists vying for the po-
sition at the famous haunted house at
Disneyland in California.
Brigante and other Disney Dream
Job hopefuls submitted a video clip
touting their sinister qualifications for
a position as butler or maid. Some
built a haunted set as a backdrop; all
Brigante had to do was suddenly ap-
pear in the velvety seat in his Haunt-
ed Mansion room.
With lightning flashing outside a
nearby window and a cast of glowing
hitchhiking ghosts at his side, 26-year-
old Brigante tells of his wish for the job,
Offering support is the floating head
of Madame Leota in the crystal ball,
who shared a poem encouraging vot-
ers to choose Brigante: "Goblins and
ghoulies, from last Halloween, give
Ricky a Disney job, that is his dream."
And with a flash of lightning, Brig-
ante was gone again.
His entry also included a note to
voters: "For years I have dreamed of
what it would be like to work inside the


Ricky Brigante wants everyone to vote for his video clip entry so he can serve as a butler for one day at Dis-
neyland's Haunted Mansion. He's devoted a room to his favorite attraction.


Haunted Mansion. It would be an
HONOR to participate in this amazing
experience! I have been a fan of the
Mansion since I was a small child,
and, as you can see in the video, I have
dedicated a room in my house to all my
Haunted Mansion collectibles and
decorations.
"This room is not a set built for this


video but, rather, a lasting tribute that
only a true Haunted Mansion fan
could build. The Haunted Mansion is
an incredible experience that brings
out the eager child in us all!
"I have ALWAYS wanted to have
a chance to help create Disney mag-

chance... but only if you VOTE for


Show your skills in W.G.'s 'American Idol' Talent Show


Winter Garden is holding its own version of Amer-
ican Idol with a talent show April 20 from 6-8 p.m.
Anyone in the community interested in entering must
audition on April 3 from 6-8 p.m. at Tanner Hall, 29
W. Garden Ave.
All talents are welcome, including dancers, soloists,
step teams, musicians, rappers and mime dancers'.


Participants must be 14 and older. Cash prizes will
be awarded for first, second and third place.

and pre-registration is required. Registration forms
can be picked up at the Winter Garden Recreation
Office, 1 Surprise Drive. For more information, call

me! :)..."
As part of Disney's Year of a Mil-
lion Dreams Celebration, Brigante and
other Disney fans entered the contest
for the chance to live out a Disney
dream job for a day. Besides the
Haunted Mansion butler/maid, resi-
dents could use their creativity to ap-
ply to be a Jungle Cruise skipper, pi-


rate, princess-in-waiting or Disney
park parade performer.
Of the top 20 finalists in each of the
five categories, the five with highest
number of views on the Web site will
win the grand prize trip to Anaheim,
Calif., June 9-12 to tackle their dream
job for a day. The Million Dreams
package is worth $3,400 and includes
airfare for the winner and up to three
guests, four-day three-night hotel ac-
commodations, four four-day Park
Hopper tickets, a Disney gift card val-
ued at $250 and a "Where Dreams
Come True" welcome basket.
Residents can vote through March
30 at www.careerbuilder.com/dis-
neydreamjobs. Brigante's entry pho-
to shows him seated with the hitch-
hiking ghosts.
His attraction to the attraction start-
ed years ago, but he's been seriously
collecting Haunted Mansion memo-
rabilia for four or five years. He's
made purchases from both Walt Dis-
ney World and Disneyland and is
hooked on eBay.
"The Haunted Mansion is a very
unique attraction," he said. "I'm ob-
viously a big Disney fan in general,
but the Haunted Mansion has a big
draw because it's so different from
everything that Disney does. Every-
thing else is so happy and bright."
Despite its darkness, though, "It's
still in the Disney style where it's fun
and entertaining," he said. "And they
make some really cool collectibles."
When he's not shopping online or
hanging out with the "undead," Brig-
ante designs Web sites and does oth-
er work with computer graphics. He
has to keep making money if he wants
to add to his collection of all things
Haunted Mansion.


Dancing for the residents
The United States Ballet Team performed recently at Health Central Park
for the residents' enjoyment. The team was in town for competition and
performances at various locations in Orlando. They graciously gifted some
of their time to the HCP residents.


PAM GALLAY


New employee

vices, has joined the Health Central
Park director team and comes with
extensive experience and knowledge.
She received her master's degree in
social work from Catholic Universi-
ty in Washington, D.C., and has been

work locally and served as director of
social work at Holmes Regional Hos-
pital in Melbourne.
She has been involved in long-term
care for more than four years and en-
joys the work.
"What I love about the Park is the
passion the staff shows for the care
they give these residents," Gallay said.
"In comparison to other nursing
homes I have worked in, the Park' is
well-staffed, handles a higher acuity,
and the patients are happy."

By Anmi Ahlstedt
Benjamin McCluske, acupuncture'
physician and licensed massage therapist,
is a man of average stature, with a salt-
and-pepper beard and a big smile. He.
greets people he meets with a warm
handshake and a friendly chat. A grad-
uate of the Florida College of Integrative
Medicine in Orlando, McCluske, an
Ocoee resident, recently opened his
acupuncture and therapeutic massage
practice at Dr. Jo J. Reeves Chiroprac-
tic in Winter Garden.
"I'm the first in my family to reach a
master's degree, which I'm very proud
of," he said.
The fact that he is well-contented and
self-assured is obvious. What you don't
see are the near-insurmountable chal-
lenges he had to overcome to make his
dream a reality.
* In July 2001, McCluske' ventured out
on what would be a fateful dive, off the
coast of Cape Canaveral. After 14 years
of diving, this would be his last.
He committed a crucial error, result-
ing in "the bends." Three air bubbles ex-
panded in his brain and brainstem -
one the size of a quarter causing se-
vere, irreparable brain damage. The day
after his 32nd birthday, McCluske found
himself paralyzed from the neck down.
"During my basic massage training I
realized I had a knack for bodywork," he
says. "I'd been a bit of a wild child
throughout my earlier years, but now I
was certain I had found my calling. I
had decided to continue my education and
become an acupuncture physician. To
say the accident came at an inopportune
time would be an understatement."
It started as a regular day on the wa-
ter with friends, intent on catching some
lobster. Among them were long-time
friend, dive ship owner and instructor
Tom Berkery, and Jason Lane, who was
serving onboard the USS Kittyhawk, as
well as an Oviedo police lieutenant, an
Orange County deputy and this writer.
"I remember standing at the stem, ad-
justing my mask," McCluske said,
"when suddenly I heard a voice crys-
tal clear say, 'Be still and know that
I am one with God.' It stopped me for a
moment, and I thought, 'Isn't that nice.'
I felt really happy ready for anything."
But at the surface, after a successful
dive and ascent, he dropped a borrowed
catch bag.
"I didn't want to be the jackass who
lost his buddy's equipment," he said.
"So I went down after it. Suddenly I was
out of air and had to do an emergency as-
cent from a depth of about 50 feet."
Berkery had already reached the boat
by the time McCluske came up for the
second time, now carried some distance
away by the strong current.
As he swam toward the boat, he real-
ized something might have gone wrong.
"'My legs felt like lead," he said. "I
went to inflate my BC to rest for a mo-
ment, but instead of reaching for the in-
flator, my arm flailed around and hit me
in the head instead."
Berkery knew something was out of
the ordinary and jumped back in.
"He was already underwater, sinking,
when I finally found him," said Berk-
ery. "He seemed unconscious."
The rest of the crew went on red alert
as a nearby fisherman threw down his rod
and jumped overboard to help in the
now-apparent rescue.
"I remember lying on the deck -- I
couldn't see. It was just this blinding
white light, but I could hear people ask-
ing me if I could breathe," McCluske
said.
He kept saying he could but the sound
come out like a squeal.
"That's when I got scared," he said.
Decompression sickness, also referred
to as "the bends," occurs when nitrogen
an inert gas stored throughout the
body is exposed to a decrease in pres-
sure, which causes it to come out of so-
lution and expand. When this happens too
quickly, such as during an emergency
ascent without decompression stops,
bubbles form in the body. The location
of these gas bubbles lead to symptoms
ranging from mild itching or joint pain,
to the most severe, including sensory
system failure, paralysis and death.
According to Dr. Buza, medical di-
rector at the Brevard Regional Hyper-
baric Center, victims with the brain em-
bolisms McCluske sustained have a sur-
vival rate of approximately one percent.


McCluske credits the experience and
quick thinking of his fellow divers, and
the swift response and diagnosis by Dr.
Buza, for saving him from terminal
paralysis.
Nitrox, an oxygen-rich breathing mix-
ture often used for deep diving; was im-
mediately administered onboard in lieu
of pure oxygen, and transport to the Bre-
vard Regional Hyperbaric Center for re-
compression treatment occurred within
a few hours of the event a vital win-
dow of opportunity to thwart further cell
damage.
. Treatment consisted of five hours in
the hyperbaric chamber (to eliminate
excess nitrogen safely) every day for the
first five days, followed by daily two-
hour recompression treatments for the
next four weeks.
McCluske is one ofthose rare people
who operate with radical optimism. Dur-
ing one physical examination, Dr. Buza
inquired about his plans for the future.
Intently focused on raising his arm to
the side and bending it to touch his in-
dex finger to his nose, McCluske replied,
"I'm going to be an acupuncture physi-
cian," at which point the arm went into
an uncontrolled spasm, jerking violent-
ly up and down his finger finally land-
ing on his forehead.
Not one to feel. sorry for himself or
bemoan his fate, McCluske never fal-
tered from his conviction that he could
regain his old self.
"I made surprising progress pretty
quickly," he said.
Fifteen days after his accident, he
walked 440 feet using a walker. It took
45 minutes.
Declared legally blind in 1993 due to
macular degeneration, a hereditary eye
disease, McCluske was no stranger to
meeting adversity with humor and an
iron will.
"I'd. already made some drastic
changes due to my vision, like finally
giving up my driver's license, so this
was just another thing to work through
- one laugh at a time."
Like the day of his return from the
hospital. As friends were about to wheel
him in, he stopped them, saying, "I
refuse to take a wheelchair into my own
home!" then heaved himself to a
standing position and fell headlong into
the hallway. His welcoming committee
dropped to the ground laughing.
"You have to laugh," he said. "How
else can you get through this stuff?"
The real work began after his hospi-
tal release. Since he had no health in-
surance, no further rehabilitation was
offered.
"I was mad," he said. "And not only
for myself. At least I knew enough about
the body to figure out my own rehab


plan, but what about other people who
don't have the knowledge or the mind-
set to figure something like this out on
their own?"
In the years following, McCluske did-
n't waver from his dedication to get back
to normal and took an unusual path. He
attended college to get his associate's
degree in natural health sciences while
still in a wheelchair and using public
transportation. He also finished his ad-
vanced massage license with a cane for
walking.
People took notice.
"Louis Klinker, my teacher in mas-
sage school, worked with me a lot; and
a friend from class, Robert Murphy, of-
fered free weekly tai chi lessons," he
said.
"These things really helped work on
my strength, mobility and balance."
Massage, electrical stimulation, tai
chi and energy work, acupuncture and
acupoint injections, as well as more tra-
ditional rehabilitation techniques and
physical exercises, were part of Mc-
Cluske's daily .self-imposed rehab reg-
imen. Convinced that the brain is, in fact,
capable of rewiring neural pathways to
compensate for the areas that were de-
stroyed, McCluske focused on staying in
constant motion.
His motto: "If all I can move is a big
toe, then I'll move that toe. The rest will
follow."
In August of 2003, two years after his
accident and a prognosis that said he
might never walk again, McCluske en-
rolled in the master's program for
acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
At this point, he had regained full con-
trol and feeling of his upper body, in-
cluding his fingers. Today, his walking
is still clumsy, due to lingering numbness,
but no longer debilitating.
"It's a slow progression, but things
are getting better all the time," he said.
After graduating from the Florida Col-
lege of Integrative Medicine in 2006,
McCluske's dream of becoming an al-
ternative health physician is finally a re-
ality.
"I know I am definitely here for a rea-
son," he said. "I've got things to do hete
on Planet Earth. The main thing, I believe,
is healing others. People need compas-
sionate care, which includes both lis-
tening and a caring human touch. And
sometimes-they need hope or a good
chuckle. Treating illness and pain is not
just about looking at symptoms it's
about treating the whole person and get-
ting to the root of the problem."
When asked about how he feels about
his life as it is today, he said: "I am
blessed. As long as the grass is green
and the sky is blue everything will
be OK."


He and his fiancee, Ami Ahlstedt, took a recent trip to Stockholm, Sweden.


Benjamin McCluske had to relearn how to walk during physical thera-
py in 2001.

pany on the northeast corner of Conroy-Windermere and Turkey Lake roads.

building being developed by Peli-
can Bay Development. The project
is located on the northeast corner of
Conroy-Windermere Road and
Turkey Lake Road. The project also
includes retail space on the first
floor.
The 133,000-square-foot project.
is a three- and four-story steel struc-


ture with exterior stucco and EIFS.
Keene's scope of work includes site-
work, building construction, some in-
terior finished and landscaping. The
project is being offered as office
condominiums by Windermere
Business Center LLC.
Site work and building construc-
tion are slated to being this month
with a scheduled completion in
November. The total development
cost for Windermere Business Cen-
ter is $30 million.


"Everyone at Keene i excited
about being selected as construction
manager for Pelican Bay Develop-
ment's first office development in
Orlando," said Ron Smith, vice
president of Keene. "This is a high-
ly visible project with an owner we
have worked for in the past and we
are very happy to be part of his
team."
Keene Construction is approach-
ing its 25th year in business in Cen-
tral Florida.


Windermere resident involved in plans for Microtel Inn & Suites

Feltrim signed a contract with
Florida-based Miller Legg for engi-
neering services and is currently-ac-
cepting bids for demolition.

Great Wine Shootout
benefit set for April 15
The Bob Allen Family Foundation
and Tim's Wine Market will sponsor
the second annual Great Wine
Shootout on Sunday, April 15, from 3-
6 p.m. The benefit will take place at
Rollie Allen's lakefront home at 611
W. Second Ave., Windermere.
More than 200 guests are expected
to attend.
"We were so thrilled with the re-
sults of our first 'shootout' there was
no question we'd bring it back this
year," said Allen. "Everyone who at-
tended really enjoyed the unique
theme, which resulted in exceeding
our financial goal for the event."
The community.is invited to enjoy
an afternoon of great wines selected by
local wine experts to compete for the
award of Most Unique Wine Poured.
Tim Varan, owner of Tim's Wine
Market, conceived the idea for the
fund-raiser.
"When the Bob Allen Family Foun-
dation approached us about a wine
fund-raiser we were reluctant to pro-
duce a typical wine-tasting event,"
said Varan. "Instead, we challenged
our top five distributors to a contest.
The result provided a level of enjoy-
ment and excitement for all, making
it hugely successful."
The way the shootout works is five
distributors are asked to select wines
in each of five categories: crisp, bright,
dry white; full-bodied oak white; fruit-
driven reds; high alcohol/high octane
red; and a wild card.
The wines are described in detail
by Varan and his staff and are paired
with a selection of foods that com-
plenrent each varietal. Varan and his
staff will also talk about the wines and
their histories. Guests then taste and
vote for their favorite, and a winner
in each category is announced at the
end of the event.
Wine will be for sale by the bottle
or the case at discounted prices with
proceeds to benefit the Foundation.

ly Foundation have come to know it for
its tradition of family one of the
reasons the event is held at the Allen
lakefront home.

ers that have become part of the foun-
dation family," said Allen. "We love
having everyone gather for this event,
and it's even more special that it is at
my home."
The family energy is one of the rea-
sons Varan became involved.
"As a small charity, they really ap-
preciate anything.that can be done to
help. We are able to pick just one
event per years, and this is the one we
love,"' said Varan.
STickets for the Shootout are $125
per person and must be purchased in
advance. Complimentary valet park-
ing will be available at two lots in
downtown Windermere with shuttle
transport to the home.

Orange County Public Schools is
well on its way to opening a relief
school for Windermere and Whis-
pering Oak elementary schools in
August. The as-yet-unnamed ele-
mentary school is located at 12050
Overstreet Road, between Chase
Road and State Road 535 near Win-
dermere.
OCPS Project Manager Chris
Rieder said the facility's two build-
ings are complete and interior fin-
ishing work is about 60 percent and
will be ready for students for the
2007-08 school year.
The school is a prototype design
that OCPS also used for Vista Lakes
and Catalina elementary schools. In
December, the former William Fran-
gus Elementary principal, Carol
Russ, was named the principal of the
new' school. Shp told the Times last
week that the new school differs
slightly from the original prototype
design because of the interior and ex-
terior color scheme and exterior ele-
vation.
The school has a capacity of 860
student work stations. It is built of
concrete with the tilt-wall construc-
tion by Charles Perry Construction
and is designed by SchenkelSchultz
architects.
The principal, staff, students, par-
ents and community are excited about
the opening of the new school and
being able to give relief to both Win-
dermere and Whispering Oakl ele-
mentary schools.
Principal Russ is hiring staff and
soliciting community input to name


the school and select colors and a
mascot. Parents and community
members are also invited to serve on
the school naming committee. The
committee will use the community
input to recommend three sugges-
tions for the name, mascot and colors,
which will be submitted to the OCPS
School Board. The board will select
the final name and reserves the right
to add additional names to the list for
consideration.


Anyone wishing to suggest a
school name, mascot and colors or
be on the school naming committee
should complete the form below and
mail it to Carol C. Russ, Sand Lake
Elementary School, 8301 Buena
Vista Woods Blvd., Orlando, FL"
32836. The information can also be:
e-mailed to russc2@ocps.net. The
deadline is March 23.

by 1 or more students. Third-grader Nicholas LaFalce's family won the
bid on Kones' offering. Dinner consisted of many tapas or small dish-
es, including roasted pears on pecan crisps, grilled baby lamb chops,
5-cheese pizza, grilled Kim Chee glazed ribs and banana pizza. Pic-

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 growl-
ing 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 some-
thing really good will be available soon. There
is a bowl of chips on the coffee table. If I want-
ed 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 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 spirit is nourished and I am
filled. I find wisdom and direction and cor-
rection. When I come eagerly and expectant-
ly I find joy. When I come tired, I find rest
and strength. When I come sick, You bring
healing. You never disappoint and I know the
meal You provide is handcrafted for me and
there is no sweeter fellowship.
Father, don't let me settle for less. My phys-
ical 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.

THE

CRENSHAW

SCHOOL


The Foundation for Orange County Public Schools
is actively recruiting Orange County residents to
participate in one of two citizen-led workgroups
that will develop and implement action plans fo-
cused on two educational priorities: parental in-
volvement/responsibility and quality teaching/eval-
uation.
Members of the workgroups will play a signifi-
cant role in shaping the future of a more connected
community and nurturing a quality education for
all students.
As a member of a workgroup, you will take part
in meetings to brainstorm and help implement pos-
itive actions centered on the two priorities. This im-
portant work can help to re-energize, re-engage and
reunite the community around the public schools.
The work is part of an initiative of the Foundation


called Count Me In! a grassroots initiative start-
ed in 2004 that has brought together hundreds of
citizens to discuss their hopes, what they value,
what they struggle with and what makes a strong
community and school system. These sentiments
were highlighted in a document called Count Me
In! Community Agreement.
In February 2007, Count Me In! asked Orange
County citizens to rank nine priority areas that
emerged from the agreement, and the top two were
parental involvement/responsibility and quality.
teaching/evaluation.
To volunteer to join the workgroup, call the Foun-
dation at 407-317-3261 or e-mail health.wells@
ocps.net by March 30.

SeaWorld's 'Believe'
wins Thea Award
SeaWorld's "Believe," the most
ambitious killer whale show in the
park's 42-year history, has been hon-
ored recently by the TEA, a trade as-
sociation for the themed attraction in-
dustry. The show received a Thea
Award for outstanding achievement
in a live show.
The show, which combines new
killer whale behaviors with elaborate
set pieces, music, choreography and
state-of-the-art multimedia, opened
to rave reviews from SeaWorld guests.
The centerpiece of the new set de-
sign is a 3-story tail fluke flanked by
four 200-square-foot moving video
screens. The screens provide guests
at Shamu Stadium with views of the
whales and trainers through cameras
both above and below the water. The
LED screens are designed to operate
independently and to come together,
forming a single panoramic screen at.
center stage.


Orlando Airport Marriott 's PorterHouse Restaurant offers guests varied menu


, Anyone heading to the airport to

experience in that area. The Orlando
Airport Marriott recently introduced the.

try.
"Many of our diners easily choose
the Lobster Fritters with Five Mus-
tard Sauce or Peanut Crusted Diver
Scallops with Grape Tomato and Gar-
iec Butter as their appetizer but have
,difficulty deciding between our sig-
nature 22-ounce Porterhouse steak,
'tefider Filet Mignon or flavorful bone-
'in Rib Eye for their main course," said
Hull.
For steak and seafood lovers, the
,-timeless Surf and Turf entree offers
the choice of a 4- or 8-ounce center-
cut filet mignon paired with a 7-ounce
cold water lobster tail.


Hearty accompaniments in portions
for sharing include Crunchy Scalloped
Potatoes, Tumbleweed Onions, As-
paragus and Wild Mushrooms. Fresh-
ly prepared desserts selections include
home-style Bread and Butter Pudding
or warm Chocolate Lava Cake with
Vanilla Sauce.

dining room is decorated in wood ac-
cents, candlelit wall sconces and
butcher paper table covers. A private
dining room is also available for spe-
cial celebrations or business dinners.

Orlando-UCF Shakespeare Festival gets new name June 1


Beginning June 1, the Orlando-UCF
Shakespeare Festival's new name will
become Orlando Shakespeare Theater
in Partnership with UCF or Orlando
Shakes for short.
Audiences have always referred to
the Festival under a variety of short ti-
tles, so going forward Orlando
Shakes will be the consistent name for
audiences, staff and volunteers to use
when they wish for a shorter name. The
new Web site will be www.orlan-
doshakes.org and will become active
June 1.
Over its history, the Festival has
grown from a festival to a year-round the-
ater. The festival began 18 years ago as
a one-month event producing two
Shakespearean plays. It now offers year-
round performances of Shakespeare,
classics (such as Shaw, Moliere and
O'Neil), new plays and world premieres,


comedies, Theater for Young Audiences
Series, education classes and camps and
readings and workshops all held in
the Lowndes Shakespeare Center, which
houses three theaters with an audience
attendance of nearly 75,000.
The Festival's relationship with the
University of Central Florida has al-
ways been strong, and the partnership
continues to grow. UCF holds four
mandatory seats on the board of direc-
tors, and Jim Helsinger, the artistic di-
rector, is'an employee of the universi-
ty and teaches both undergraduate and
graduate classes. In addition, David Lee,
the associate director of new play de-
velopment, works at UCF as well as at
the Festival.
The Festival also provides a thriving
internship program, which gives UCF
students the opportunity to fulfill un-
dergraduate BFA requirements.

ou in the Dr. Phillips CineDome. It
now plays daily throughout the spring
and summer.
The film, which features New Or-
leans, the wetlands and Hurricane Ka-
trina, carries audience behind today's
headlines into the heart of Louisiana
- before, during and after the dev-
astation of Hurricane Katrina. It is also
a musical celebration of the city that
has been called the "soul of Ameri-
ca" and a compelling call to restore it
and protect the vital wetlands.
The film is produced and distribut-
ed by MacGillivray Freeman Films
with executive producer Audubon Na-
ture Institute, presented by the Weath-
er Channel and narrated by actress
Meryl Streep.
Hurricane on the-Bayou follows a
group of four New Orleans musicians
as they uncover the electrifying culture
of the city, explore the alligator-filled
bayous on airboats, recount their per-
sonal stories of Katrina and bring the
focus to the rapidly disappearing wet-
lands that are New Orleans' first line
of defense against deadly storms.
The film is included with admis-
sion to OSC, which is $14.95 for
adults and $9.95 for children ages 3-
11. Film-only admission is also avail-
able, and guests receive a discount af-
ter 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday
nights.
For more information and show
times,, call 407-514-2000 or visit
www.osc.org..


This year among the 18 national
recording acts are performers who
have won or are currently nominated
for the GMA Dove Awards in 10 dif-
ferent musical genres.
Night of Joy begins at 7:30 p.m. (af-
ter regular theme park closing) and
continues to 12:30 a.m. Performances
will be at several stage locations
throughout the Magic Kingdom.
In addition, many attractions, in-
cluding Space Mountain, Splash
Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain
Railroad, will be in operation.
For tickets, call 407-W-DISNEY.


'25th Annual Putnam
County Spelling Bee'
The Tony Award-winning musical
comedy, The 25th Annual Putnam
-County Spelling Bee, opens at the Carr
Performing Arts Center April 10 and
runs through April 15 for eight per-
formances. Tickets are on sale now.
In the show, six young people in
the throes of puberty, overseen by
grown-ups who barely managed to es-
cape childhood themselves, learn that
winning isn't everything and that los-
ing doesn't necessarily make you a
loser.
This tuneful, offbeat and heart-
warming show offers audience mem-
bers the opportunity (strictly volun-
tary) to become part of the action as on-
stage spellers.
. For performance times and ticket
information, call 407-423-9999.
