Plans progressing



for Windermere's


Main Stree

The Development Review
Board approved Veranda
Partners' downtown
improvement plans during a
special meeting last Tuesday.

By Kathy Aber

Veranda Partners has been successful in
gaining approval for its Main Street Shoppes
project from Windermere's seven-member
Development Review Board after making
many revisions to a conceptual plan submit-
ted more than a year ago. The DRB is set to
recommend the plans subject to nine condi-
tions to the Town Council at its meeting April
10.
Serious discussions began in January on
the development plans for approximately four
acres of property, a major portion of Win-
dermere's downtown business district, owned
by Kosta Holdings. Developer Kevin Azzouz
is the principal of Kosta Holdings.
The area involved includes the Suzi Karr Re-
alty office site, the former Windermere Union
Church property, the block behind the busi-
ness district on Oakdale Street from Fifth to
Sixth avenues and several adjacent proper-
ties on Main Street where Dr. Louis Avriett's
dentist office and old McMurtrey building
are located.
The proposed development is approxi-
mately 50,000 square feet in size and will re-
place existing structures that total 19,480
square feet.
According to Town Manager Cecilia
Bernier, the project encompasses four build-
ings of different heights, both one story and
two stories, none of which exceed a maxi-
mum height limitation of 35 feet. The plans
have been completely redesigned from those
presented in January, which included two
church-like buildings with elements taken
from Windermere Union Church at Fifth and
Oakdale and Zion Lutheran Church on
Hempel Avenue in Gotha.
To respond to previous DRB comments


t Shoppes

that the designs were not scaled for Winder-
mere, the new plans feature building mod-
ules in 20-foot increments.
During its meeting last week, Bernier said,
the DRB determined that Veranda Partners
had met everything the board had previous-
ly asked the developer to do.
However, there are still a number of items
to be ironed out.
In recommending the preliminary plan to the
Town Council, the DRB also attached a list
of nine conditions that should be resolved or
included in the Developer's Agreement pri-
or to a final approval by the council.
The conditions include:
a list of stipulated uses and operating hours
(6 a.m. to'10 p.m.) for businesses;
a finalized transportation proportionate
fair share agreement;
maximum percentages for commercial
space of up to 30 percent restaurant, 30 per-
cent retail, 20 percent medical office and 50
percent general office;
four parking spaces per 1,000 square feet
of building;
a sign plan that complies with the Town
Center Design Guidelines;
specific design requirements for the park-
ing lots and roundabout at Fifth Avenue;
windows and doors on the first floor that
are no less than 70 percent of the total store-
front with doors being more than 50 percent
clear glass;
site plans reflecting jogs in building foot-
prints shown on the elevations;
detailed stormwater plans and a planned
and funded wastewater system, along with
plans to supply potable water to the project.
The recommendations prohibit an on-site
sewer treatment plant. The DRB also speci-
fied that the Developer's Agreement should
also reflect there is no guarantee from the
town on the timing of such a system being
installed or available.
Bernier said Monday that the DRB rec-
ommendations would be presented to the
Town Council during its regular meeting April
10. The council has 30 days to schedule a
public hearing on the development plan;


Cops to get higher pay in Oakland


The town is hoping
to retain more of its
officers after spending
time and money to train
them.

By Amy Quesinberry

The Oakland Police Department is
constantly hiring and training officers
to protect the town's residents. With-
in the past year, three recent hires ul-
timately took a higher-paying job in an-


other town.
To help combat the high turnover
in the police department, Chief Tim
Driscoll presented to the Oakland
Town Commission a proposal that he
hopes will keep officers in town.
At the March 27 meeting, the elect-
ed officials approved the equivalent
of an $8,000 pay raise for Oakland's
officers. Their current starting salary
is $29,500. Officers who have gone
through the full training phase ap-
proximately 12 weeks long will
now earn $37,500. Officers who have
yet to complete the training will make


$34,500.
The sergeants' salary would in-
crease to $41,000, and the lieutenant
would make $46,000. Their previous
starting pay was $34,000 and $39,000,
respectively.
Driscoll explained that these pay
increases stay within the budget struc-
ture the town currently has for the po-
lice department. To keep the budget
balanced, Driscoll said, he would
eliminate the 10th officer position and
delegate those duties across the board.

Southwest Orlando Relay For Life kicks off April 13 at Dr. Phillips High


By Kathy Aber


The 2007 Southwest Orlando Re-
lay For Life is scheduled fori Friday
and Saturday, April 13-14, at Dr.
Phillips High School. This year's Re-
lay theme is "It's A Standoff Against
Cancer." Event organizers Steve
McKinney and Kathy Leadbeater said
this week that the wild, wild South-


west sheriffs are back in town and
ready to fight cancer next weekend
while having a rootin' tootin' time
during the Relay For Life.
This overnight event is a project of
the American Cancer Society that is de-
signed to celebrate cancer survivors,
remember those lost to the disease and
raise funds and awareness to help con-
tinue research to fight the disease.


The Relay is a family-oriented,
community-based event where teams
collect donations then take turns walk-
ing or running around a track for 18
hours. While not walking, team mem-
bers and supporters, including cancer
survivors, camp out on the stadium
field and enjoy camaraderie, games,

Winter Garden showcases

economic opportunities

Health Central prepares for disaster
Health Central hospital performed a disaster drill last Friday to help medical personnel practice treating ca-
sualties who have been exposed to hazardous materials. Orange County Fire-Rescue, Ocoee and Winter
Garden firefighters and Health Central paramedics participated in the exercise. Health Central volunteer Robin
Kimmel (on stretcher) acts as an injured patient as she is cared for by a HAZMAT team outside the hospi-

City leaders are calling last Wednes-
day's Showcase Winter Garden event
a great success.
About 150 people attended the
event, which began with a luncheon
and presentation at Tanner Hall and
followed with a trolley tour of some of
Winter Garden's top commercial pro-
jects in the works.
"I am very pleased with the out-
come," said Shelly Weidenhamer, city
economic development director. "We
had 150 people attend and could have
had another 100 if we would have kept
registration open."
Showcase Winter Garden was de-
signed to increase awareness of the
city's retail, office and industrial real
estate opportunities. With more than
2 million square feet of new com-
mercial development in the works,
Winter Garden is on the brink of an
economic renaissance.
City Manager Michael Bollhoefer
told the audience at Tanner Hall that
Winter Garden's economy is transi-
tioning from residential to commer-


- cial-based development.
"We're not a bedroom community
anymore," he said, "but we cannot
lose that charm and character that dis-
tinguishes it from other West Orange
communities."
Weidenhamer spoke of the need for
economic diversity and class-A office
space. Winter Garden, she said, cur-
rently has no class-A office space, but
within 10 years, it will boast more
than 1 million square feet of class-A
office facilities, in addition to 2 mil-
lion square feet of new commercial
space planned for development over the
next five years.
Charlie Sloan, representing the
Metro Orlando Economic Develop-
ment Commission, also spoke at the
luncheon about the importance of
class-A office product to the city's
economic growth.
The ensuing tour by trolleys and
buses gave participants an up-close
view of 14 significant projects, in-
cluding the Garden Plaza, Winter Gar-
den Executive Center, the Garden

Whispering Oak 5th-graders advance to
national competition in TOYchallenge
Whispering Oak Elementary School's fifth-grade team has been
selected to participate in the Seventh Annual TOYchallenge Nation-
al Competition to be held at the San Diego Air and Space Museum April
21-22.
This is the only elementary school team from Orange County cho-
sen for the national competition, and the students need help in fund-
ing the trip. The estimated cost for the team to attend the competition
is $4,000. Fund-raisers are planned, and sponsors are needed.
TOYchallenge is a design competition for students in fifth through
eighth grades in the United States and Canada, sponsored by the Sal-
ly Ride Science Foundation. The foundation encourages girls' inter-
est in science, math and engineering. At least half of each team must
be girls.
"TOYchallenge provides kids with a really fun way to explore the
principles of science and engineering, and they'll also learn valuable
lessons in problem solving and teamwork along the way," said Sally'
Ride, NASA astronaut.
The Whispering Oak team, called the Mighty Chihuahuas, created
and developed a unique knowledge-based game designed to make
learning fun while testing and strengthening students' knowledge.
Subjects include geography, math, science and literature and incor-
porate Sunshine State benchmarks.
Preliminary round entries were judged by scientists and engineers

based on originality, creativity, en-
gineering, feasibility, design pro-
cess, team participation and clar-
S ity of communication.
According to the Bureau of La-
bor Statistics, women comprise

only 11 percent of the engineering
workforce. Studies show that in
elementary school equal numbers
of girls and boys are interested in
(and good at) math, science and
technology. By eigth grade, twice


as many boys as girls show an in-
terest in these subjects. TOYchal-
lenge focuses on catching girls' at-

to keep them in the engineering
pipeline.

back into the library for
cookies and punch. A 2nd
: egg hunt was held at 5 /
p.m., and more than 100
elementary school
students participated.

, As administrator of the "Katie Fund," I am asking
: each of you to join me in helping a great Ocoee family
meet their overwhelming
medical costs.
Katie is 7 and has had
systemic lupus since she
was 3. Her struggles started
in March 2001 when she
contracted the Epstein-Barr
virus and kept getting sick
with fevers for no apparent
reason, strange and painful
rashes, swollen lymph ,.
nodes, headaches, extreme
i fatigue, seizures and joint
pain. After many, many
tests, her parents were told
she had lupus.
'" At age 5, she was diag-
. nosed with non-Hodgkin's
'. lymphoma. Radiation,
chemotherapy and a stem-
"'"cell transplant from her
baby brother put Katie in
remission, but the cancer
^ has returned twice both
times treated successfully with radiation.
A stent was placed in her urinary tract due to radiation
scarring, and she has developed autoimmune hepatitis
and needs transfusions due to high doses of corticos-
teroids for her liver.
Katie has endured numerous benign cysts and debili-
* statingg headaches throughout her ordeal. But, despite this,
Ai r1


she is a hard-working first-grader with perfect report
cards. This tough and determined little girl misses as lit-
tle school as possible and doesn't like leaving during
school hours. She has been known to go home in terri-
ble pain, take some medi-
cation, rest and then go back
-to school to finish the day.
Katie's father works 12-
15 hours a day as a plumber,
and her mother is in nurs-
ing school at Valencia
Community College with
plans to work night shifts.
The parents have insur-
ance, but it only covers 60
to 80 percent of their ex-
,.. penses, not including de-
ductibles, medicines con-
sidered "experimental,"
.- ~MRIs, CTs, sonograms,
Pathology or labs. Basic
monthly medical costs to-
tal $2,000.
Medical expenses are dai-
ly challenges for this great
family, and they need your
help.
Please join me by mak-
ing a generous donation to Katie. Mail all donations or
checks made out to the Katie Fund to 125 N. Lakeview
Ave., Winter Garden, FL 34787. The family and I thank
you in advance for any help you can provide.

The huge oak trees on the McMillan Property fac-

the season.
It was slightly reminiscent of "Hellzapoppin" and a

an outstanding team of Little League mothers with
Auxiliary President Barbara Fulmer heading up the

and coaches could muster and defeated them 114-0.
Nothing could stop the determined women as they

Editor:
- : I felt strongly about writing this letter about another
Winter Garden business that has been a landmark for
-over three decades and will soon be torn down to make
-., way for growth and become a retention pond. That busi-
ness is Shirley's Antiques.
I miss Shirley's on State Road 50.1, for many years, loved
stopping by and getting lost in the mazes of antiques and
collectibles, in awe and curiosity. Shirley Smith would al-
- -ways take time to answer my many questions about pieces
thoroughly and with such wit. I'm sure I was quite the pest
with all of my questions and curiosity, but she was al-
ways happy to explain. There was a lot of history in those
walls.
I enjoyed her friendly smile and greeting when you en-
tered the store.
The most upsetting thing is this lady has put over half
of her life, heart and soul into that business. She has served
locals and snowbirds that returned every year. She had
celebrities such as Johnny Cash, Martha Stewart with her
mother and many more. She was also robbed at gunpoint


V4 A




ORANV

OL.XX MO..I

a


and lived to tell the story. With Shirley, everyone was a
special customer (except the robbers!).
It's really sad you can lose your life's work in a minute
due to growth. Of course, we have all lost due to other sit-
uations also beyond our control, such as weather/family.
I have also heard people say, "Oh, I'm sure she was
well compensated." With Shirley, it's the principle; her
life's work was on that corner. Plus, she is one of the
hardest-working people I have ever known. She is a work-
er and a fighter for people's rights, beliefs and this city.
When the store goes down on 50,1 I will be crying with
you. Shirley, I know you will come back stronger than ever.
You and your daughter, Kim, can concentrate on Shirley's
Trailside Antiques. I'm so glad you are a strong lady of
faith, and I'm proud to call you my friend.
I'm sorry we couldn't fight for your property rights
when you have fought for so many others in this town.
It sure will be strange giving directions to turn at the
Amoco and retention pond.

Actor George Takei (from left), producer James Cawley and DAVE School owner Jeff Scheetz celebrated
last week's DAVE School graduation along with the premier of a Web episode of StarTrek New Voyages
starring Takei.

George Takei stars in DAVE School project


By Michael Laval

Students at the Digital Animation
and Visual Effects (DAVE) School in
Dr. Phillips celebrated their graduation
last week with the unveiling of their
latest work, which took the school
where it has never gone before.
As their final project, DAVE School
students created the computer animation
and visual effects used in an episode of
Star Trek New Voyages, a Web series
that continues the storyline of the orig-
inal Star Trek television show.
George Takei, who originated the
role of Mr. Sulu in the 1960s classic
and can currently be seen in the hit TV
show Heroes, starred in the new episode
as Sulu.
After seeing the show at the DAVE
School's graduation ceremony last
Thursday, Takei told The West Orange
Times he was impressed with the caliber
of work done by the graduating class.
"Amazing things have been done,
and it's comparable to what's on net-


work TV," Takei said. "It's really im-
pressive."
James Cawley, creator and execu-
tive producer of the Web series, said
he was also blown away by the visual
effects provided by the DAVE School.
The student computer animators creat-
ed 658 shots, which, he said, was about
three times more than the amount used
in any modern Star Trek television
episodes.
"It's definitely Hollywood magic cre-,
ated in Florida," Cawley said. "We de-
veloped a network-quality film and
have raised the bar for fan films.",
The number of shots to be created
by DAVE School animators rose great-
ly from the initially planned 150 as pro-
ducers continued to add more special ef-
fects. The amount of work done at the
DAVE School could have cost pro-
ducers well over a half-million dollars
at a commercial facility, according to
DAVE School instructor Lee Stringer.
The set and actors for the episode
were shot in New York City, while all


green-screen, motion-capture and vi-
sual effects work took place at the
DAVE School.
Jeff Scheetz, owner and founder of the
DAVE School, said working on this
project was a great experience for the
school and its students.
"This project is right along with all
our training goals," Scheetz said. "We
simply try to give our students an on-
the-job experience while they are still
in school.
The DAVE School teaches a 12-
month program in computer animation
and visual effects at its 9,000-square-foot
facility, at University. Studios Florida.
Scheetz founded the school in 2000
with his wife, Anne. Students receive
production-intensive training that cul-
minates with the creation of a com-
pleted film.

School or Star Trek New Voyages log

merce Ambassadors and a ribbon-cutting ceremony. DGI offers custom design and fabrication services for

Children get mental exercise at EncouraGYM


A new Winter Garden business is giv-
ing young children a mental workout
that should give them a head start when
it comes to school.
EncouraGYM, opened last year by
Winter Garden residents John and Liz
Long, offers an active learning envi-
ronment for children from birth to 5
years old.
Parents and children participate in 50-
to 60-minute classes developed by ear-
ly childhood specialists. The programs
are designed to stimulate children to
learn and grow through active play and
educational activities.
Each activity at EncouraGYM has a
specific purpose directed toward the so-
cial, cognitive and physical growth of
children. The structure of the activities
is designed to help children prepare for
preschool and kindergarten.
The Longs, parents of four children,
said they opened EncouraGYM because


they could not find any active learning
centers in the West Orange area.
"We wanted to bring a center to the
area that would serve the needs of par-
ents and children," Liz Long said. "Not
just a play place, but a place for play
and learning."
When researching different children's
centers, Long said she and her husband
were drawn to the EncouraGYM mod-
el because the program's focus on edu-
cating both parents and children in many
different areas of development.
"'At its core, play is the mechanism
through which children learn about the
world around them, and parents are their
child's most valued teachers," she said.
"EncouraGYM programs stimulate
growth and development through play,
and parents are there to encourage their
children to try new activities."'
EncouraGYM also offers birthday
parties that include everything from


forks and napkins to a themed cake and
a large pizza. Tutoring sessions are avail-
able to elementary students in "'first
through fifth grades. All tutors at En-
couraGYM, Long added, are well-qual-
.ified, Florida-certified teachers.
Active learning classes are offered
Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.
to 2 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to
noon. Open hours for gym members are
Monday through Friday from 9-10 a.m.
and Sunday from 10-11:30 a.m. '
Birthday parties can be hosted Friday
from 5-8 p.m. and Saturday and Sun-
days from noon to 4:30 p.m. Parent's
Night Out takes place Saturday from 6-
10 p.m., and tutoring is available Mon-
day through Thursday from 4:30-8 p.m.
EncouraGYM is located at 1220 Win-
ter Garden-Vineland Road, Suite 116.

Required IRA Distributions.
If you've turned 70 and have
a Traditional IRA, please read this.

Federal law requires you to withdraw money from Traditional IRAs (and
inherited Roth IRAs) at age 701/2. (If you don't, you'll owe a 50% penalty on
the amount you should have withdrawn.) If you haven't taken your distribu-
tion yet, here are the basics and a potential tax break you should know about.
Will you turn 701/2 in 2007? If so, you have two options. 1) You can take
your initial minimum withdrawal this year. Look at your Dec. 31, 2006 IRA
balance, divide it by the proper divisor in Appendix C of IRS Publication 590
(Individual Retirement Arrangements), and withdraw at least that amount by
Dec. 31, 2007. 2) You can postpone your first required withdrawal until April
1, 2008 but you'll have to make a second IRA withdrawal by Dec. 31, 2008,
and that means being taxed twice.
Did you turn 701/2 in 2006? If you haven't taken that first mandatory dis-
tribution yet, you must do so by April 2, 2007, April 2 is next Monday. If fact,
you'll have to make two withdrawals in 2007. You calculate your initial mini-
mum withdrawal using your Dec. 31, 2005 IRA balance, your age at the end
of 2006, and the proper divisor in Appendix C of IRS Publication 590. The
second withdrawal has to be' made by Dec. 31, 2007. You compute that with-
drawal by taking your Dec. 31, 2006 IRA balance and dividing it by the proper
divisor in Appendix C, as above. You must withdraw that amount or more by
'Dec. 31, 2007. .
IRA gifts can reduce your taxes. IRA withdrawals are always heavily
taxed, at rates up to 35%. But thanks to the Pension Protection Act of 2006,
you can get a "senior discount" in 2007. If you're 701/2 or older, you can
make a charitable gift through your IRA. Your IRA trustee can transfer up to
$100,000 of your IRA assets to charity without incurring taxable income. Un-
der the PPA, these charitable gifts count toward your mandatory annual with-
drawal if you're 701/2 or older. Hypothetically, let's say you're in the 28% tax
bracket and you have to withdraw $20,000 from your IRA this year. If you
transfer that $20,000 to a qualified charitable organization before taking any
distribution, you can cut your federal taxes by $5,600.Planning for the proper
disbursement of your IRA funds is crucial. Avoiding the 50% penalty is, need-
less to say, something to be avoided. Also, having the right beneficiaries
named on your accounts is crucial, since the "Stretch" IRA option might save
your heirs thousands of dollars in income taxes. Please call my office if you
have IRA distribution questions.

Winter Garden programs teach water conservation


The city of Winter Garden has de-
clared April as Water Conservation
Month and is asking residents to join
in its efforts to promote water con-
servation.
A series of events are planned for
April and May. Rain sensor retrofits
will be conducted through April 30.
An irrigation workshop is April 14
to assist residents with maintenance
and efficient use of in-ground sys-
tems. It takes place at 9 a.m. at Little
Hall, 29 W. Garden Ave.
A rain barrel workshop is April.21
at Ace Hardware, 500 S. Dillard St.,
at 10 a.m. The program is free to Win-
ter Garden residents, who will build
their own rain barrel.
A showerhead exchange takes place


April 28 and 29, and residents can
have their old showerheads (two per
customer) replaced for free. Take the
old ones to Ace Hardware between
10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
A landscape seminar is planned for
May 12, presented by the award-win-
ning Florida Yards- and Neighbor-
hoods program, at 9 a.m. at Little Hall.
A representative from the city's Wa-
ter Conservation Office is available
. to speak at homeowner's association
meetings and other community events,
and the department offers presenta-
tions, advice and hands-on assistance
for customers.
For more information on these pro-
grams, call 407-654-2732 or go to
www.wintergarden-fl.gov.


The Winter Garden Water Con-
servation Office offers five tips for
efficient water use.
Spring is here, and It's time to
get out and work in the yard. When
installing new plants and turf, be
sure to water small areas with a
hand-held hose equipped with an
automatic shut-off nozzle.
Now is the time to check sprin-
kler heads for leaks. One broken or
leaking sprinkler could waste
1,000 gallons or more in less than
one hour.
Get the lawn mower ready for
summer by sharpening or replac-
ing worn blades and adjust the
mower to the highest setting. A


clean-cut yard not only looks bet-
ter, but it will lessen turf stress and
possible problems.
When draining or back-wash-
ing the pool, use the water to irri-
gate plants or turf. This will allow
residents to shut off a section of
their sprinkler system and save
money.
When washing the vehicle,
park it on the lawn and water grass
at the same time. Do not use an-
tibacterial soaps, which can kill
beneficial organisms in the soil
over time.
For more information on effi-
cient water use, contact 407-654-
2732 or www.wintergarden-fl.gov.

Oakland
Driscoll said Monday that there was
an opening for a 10th officer but the
department decided n6t to fill the po-
sition.
"This salary increase puts Oakland
above other small agencies," the chief
said, adding that the pay raise puts
Oakland's starting salary just under
that in Winter Garden and Ocoee.
"It will definitely draw retention,"
Mayor Kathy Stark said.
Driscoll's proposal also includes
assigning take-home vehicles to full-
time officers. Those in the field-train-
ing program would not be eligible to
take home a vehicle.
Another employment condition
Driscoll asked the Town Commission
to consider is having new officers
sign a contract that stipulates they
will stay with the agency at least three
years.
"The town puts a lot of time and
money into training and equipment,"
Driscoll said.
In his proposal, officers who are
trained with Oakland and leave with-
in the first year of employment would
reimburse the town 100 percent of
the training costs, which is up to
$7,000. Those who leave within two
years would pay back 75 percent, and

nition. The walkathon begins with the

those who leave within the third year
would pay back 25 or 50 percent.
"It makes sense," said Commis-
sioner Mike Satterfield, and, ad-
dressing the officers present in the
audience, added, "but our goal is to
make this piece of paper a moot point
because ya'll are so happy to be here
and want to stay."
After the discussion, the commis-
sion voted to accept the salary raises
and the vehicle take-home policy. The
commission and police chief will con-
sider any details for the proposed con-
tract at a later meeting.
In other business, the elected offi-
cials:
accepted a bid from Stiles to
maintain or remove nine trees out of
171 on a list provided by an arborist
earlier in the year. Oakland had bud-
geted $10,000 for the work from a
forestry grant the town received.
accepted a bid of $6,715 from
Lotspeich and Associates Inc. to mon-
itor wetlands utilizing the St. Johns
River Water Management District's
criteria. This ecological consulting is
stipulated in the town's consumptive-
use permit with SJRWMD. The town
is spending funds from the Contin-
gency Fund ($4,515) and an existing


ways, including an awards ceremony
and dinner.
Another Relay highlight is the lu-
minaria ceremony, which is set for 9
p.m. The ceremony includes small
bags with candles placed around the
track and lit in memory of those who
lost their lives to cancer and in honor
of those who have survived or who are
still fighting the disease. The ceremo-
ny also includes bagpipe music.
Entertainment continues after the

Congregation Sinai to host holocaust remembrance event

the Footsteps of the Holocaust. The
program is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the
Jenkins Auditorium.
Dr. Cohn is a professor in the College

Dr. Cohn to continue her journey to
Terezin in the Czech Republic, the site
of the interment of 150,000 children.
The professor's personal journey and
professional research have led her to
determine the best method to teach fu-

plement 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.
Supporters of the Bob Allen Fam-
ily Foundation have come to know it

the reasons the event is held at the

Winter Garden City Manager Michael Bollhoefer (left) and Mayor Jack
Quesinberry caught a glimpse of Winter Garden's economic future
through View-Masters given to attendees at last week's Winter Gar-
den Showcase.


Winter Garden
(Continued from front page)
Theatre, D&D Building, the new
City Hall, the Packing Plant, Daniels
Commerce Center, Winter Garden
Village at Fowler Groves, Winter
Garden Technology Park and Apex
Commercial Center.
Not all of Winter Garden's up-
coming developments consist of re-
tail and office space. Lots are cur-
rently for sale at Winter Garden
Technology Park, a 250,000-square-
foot center located on Story Road
just east of Ninth Street. Fiber-optic
cable, Weidenhamer said, is already
in place along Story Road to serve
the project.
Winter Garden. Showcase also
spotlighted plans for the city's east-
ern gateway at Plant Street and S.R.
429, which will become a hub of
business activity in the coming years
with approximately 800,000 square
feet of office and commercial flex
space expected to spring up.
Within 10 years, the Strates prop-
erty on the south side of Plant Street
at S.R. 429 could become a 700,000-
square-foot class-A office business
park on the magnitude of Maitland
Center.
The importance of new commer-
cial and office space, Weidenhamer
said, is to develop a more diversi-
fied economy that can better with-
stand market fluctuations. Jobs and
businesses based on growth and con-
struction, for example, will eventu-
ally leave the area once all the avail-
able land is developed.
The Showcase Winter Garden tour
concluded with a reception at Apex
Commerce Center at Britt Business
Park on the north side of Plant Street
near S.R. 429.
With $50 million invested in con-
struction and development in Win-
ter Garden over the next five years,
Weidenhamer said, the city is on its
way to becoming an economic hub
for the region. Last Wednesday's
event will likely not be the last to
showcase Winter Garden's eco-
nomic opportunities to the region.
"With the amount of commercial
development we are seeing, and the
interest throughout Central Florida,
I look forward to this becoming an
annual event," Weidenthamer said.

STAND BY ME!
Real estate transactions are complex
and unpredictable. Professional Re-
altors are trained to handle the many
facets of buying a home. A Realtor
with local experience is an invaluable
asset to your venture if you are in the
market to purchase a new home.
When you find a real estate agent
with whom you feel confident, it is
important to enter into a committed
working relationship with that person.
You will depend on this person to han-
dle one of the most important agree-
ments of your life! Concentrating
your search with one agent will allow
that Realtor to become truly knowl-
edgeable about your needs, desires,
and financial capacities. Your Real-
tor will use this information to find
you the home you are looking for.
Maintaining loyalty to the Realtor of
your choice will bear you more fruit
than scattering your attention among
several agents. A Realtor who feels
your commitment will devote his or her
energy to finding the right home for
you.
If you would like to talk further about
buying or selling real estate, please
contact Libby Tomyn CRS at Centu-
ry 21 Professional Group.. Call me on
my personal message line, 321-293-

cluding plants and flowers, benches and trellises, homemade treats and

Shingle Creek Golf Club

celebrates 3rd anniversary


Shingle Creek Golf Club, home to
the Brad Brewer Golf Academy, has
had a busy third year. The resort
opened a new 1,500-room hotel and
.launched the Shaquille O'Neal
Celebrity Golf Tournament in Septem-
ber.
In November, the course hosted the
third annual Bethune-Cookman Col-
lege and Florida A&M University Or-
ange County Alumni Chapters Schol-
arship tournament.
"We are extremely pleased with the
continued growth and respect that
Shingle Creek Golf Club has achieved,
particularly in three years," said Har-
ris Rosen, president and COO of
Rosen Hotels and Resorts.
"When we first conceptualized de-
veloping Shingle Creek, our intent
was to build and grow a golf course and
property that would stand out among
all the other facilities that Orlando has
to offer. There is no question that we
have achieved that. If we hadn't, peo-
ple like Shaquille O'Neal would have


chosen to hold their charity events
elsewhere."
In 2005, Shingle Creek was named
a Top 40 Best New Course by
GolfWeek magazine, followed a month
later by being named one of the Top
10 Toughest Courses by the Orlando
Business Journal. The course has also
received the Greens of Distinction
award from Corporate & Incentive
Travel magazine.
Brad Brewer, who heads the golf
academy, was recently named one of
Golf Magazine's Top 100 Teachers
, for 2007-08.
In addition, Shingle Creek was
ranked one of the Top 100 golf shops
in the United States by Golf World
magazine for the second consecutive
year.
Shingle Creek Golf Club is locat-
ed at 9939 Universal Blvd., just off
exit 2 of the Beach Line Expressway
(S.R. 528).

Sand did many jump rope tricks and an
obstacle course that got their hearts


pumping.
Radio Disney came out to entertain
the fourth- and fifth-graders as they
jumped. All 519 students participated
in the event. After the students did all
the rotations (40 minutes), they ate a
healthy snack that the room parents
provided.
Leading up to the event, Wilmot had
the students find Mr. Heart, who was


hidden somewhere on campus. The
student who found him would bring
him to Wilmot for a prize and a heart
fact. The student had to tell everyone
else what the heart fact was.
Wilmot also challenged the students
by telling them he would shave off his
beard if they raise $5,000. Of course,
he had to shave his beard because
they passed the goal.

Foundation Academy was happy to welcome the Windermere Little League celebration of Opening Dayat
the new baseball/softball complex recently. The ceremony began with the league president, Scott Dillon,
introducing Pastor Braswell of 1st Baptist Church of Winter Garden for prayer. Next was the academy's el-
ementary drama group singing 'The Star-Spangled Banner.' The fields were developed through a 'Fieldvf
Dreams' Orange County grant that Windermere Little League received. FA is excited about these types f
community partnerships and hopes that others can be made in the future. Pictured are (l-r): (1st row)

Recently, the Ocoee Middle FFA Livestock Judging Team competed
Members of Ocoee High School's National Honor Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA) wait to perform at Or- at the state livestockjudging competition. The team placed 4th, and the
l$ndo Regional Medical Center. Pictured are (l-r): (bottom row) Kari Soehren, Olivia Buzzell, Jolyne Low- award will be received at the FFA State Convention in June. Team

'Diamonds'
In December 2005, the Ocoee Mid-
dle School principal, Dr. Katherine
Clark, developed "Diamonds," an en-
richment program for girls with under-
utilized potential.
"Diamonds," which is part of the
OMS comprehensive guidance pro-
gram, is designed to help girls become
critical thinkers, innovators and lead-
ers. It also encourages participants to
capitalize on their respective strengths
as a key factor to improving their lives.
Biweekly, the grade-level counselor
provides activities helping the girls de-
velop skills in the areas of personal-so-
cial growth, educational planning and
career and vocational development.'
The overall goal is to develop a
mentoring support structure, coupled
with collaborative relationships among
public and private partners, which em-
powers the girls to reach their full po-
tential.
The girls in the "Diamonds" program
recently prepared a meal at the Ronald
McDonald House for the families living
there.


Dance therapy
The students in the Ocoee High Na-
t(onal Honor Society for Dance Arts
:have been giving back to the commu-
,nity by going to Orlando Regional
NMedical Center and Arnold Palmer
Hospital for Children and doing dance
,therapy with the patients. They also
,work with the exceptional education
'classes at OHS.
At Arnold Palmer, the dancers went
,in and met with kids in the cancer
'ward, brought them cards and pic-
y tjres, performed a few pieces and
'then talked to them. The students told
,the children what dance was for them
--the catharsis, the emotional release
'that dancers go through and how it re-
ally helps them to release negative
,feelings and energies so they can
grow and heal as human beings.
The dancers tried to get the children
,to understand that a person doesn't
'have to be a dancer in order to move
and to create. The students played an
improvev game that let the kids pick the
music, a body part to focus on and an
;emotion they would like to see re-
Jflected in the dance. The first improve
'was done by the dancers, but the chil-
dren were invited to join in the second
time.
At ORMC, they performed for the
patients in the Heart/Cardiac Unit, al-
*wing them to be active participants
,iT the improve piece, also.
< The NHSDA members give up their
lunch time once a week at OHS to
meet with the exceptional education
students in a creative movement class
in the dance studio. Both groups learn
Much from each other.
0 The NHSDA will be participating in
the Relay for Life .by performing at the
Survivors' Dinner on April 13.

Writing project
* Ocoee High students are writing
their way to the love of knowledge. It
is impossible to separate the reading
and writing process, for one is need-
ed to be able to comfortably do the
other.
It is important to draw kids into the


love of reading and writing and to open
up their ideas of themselves to include
that of being creative geniuses. Every
child can create, and every child has
a voice they can and should share.
Often they simply have not yet leaned
how to speak the creative language,
and the process of writing may help
them to become audible.
Children need to be nurtured
through every new process or experi-
ence. Writing is the same. If taught in
a way that makes it appealing and not
intimidating, then the child can learn to
love the written word.
Over the past four years, what be-
gan as a "cool project idea" at OHS
by one of the reading teachers, (Ti-
some Nugent, has turned into a bap-
tism by pen for many of the same re-
luctant readers. It has become their
public declaration of their creative abil-
ities.
Allowing children to express them-
selves under the guise of being an au-
thor is strong therapy one that many
famous authors still enjoy today as
they pen away their frustrations.
More than 500 OHS reading stu-
dents within the classrooms of six
reading teachers are undergoing the
"creative transformation." Many are
experiencing the project for the sec-
ond time around and are now consid-
ering themselves "seasoned writers."
The subjects written about include
friendship, love, family and the chal-
lenges associated with them.
One student wrote, "I couldn't be-
lieve it, was like a dream come true, all
I wanted was what I had."

Reflections Contest
The Ocoee High PTSA recently an-
nounced the results of the National
PTA Reflections Program. The pro-
gram recognizes outstanding student
work in literature, visual arts, musical
composition, photography, dance
choreography and film/video produc-
tion.
Entries are created each year with
a particular theme in mind. The theme
for 2006-07 was "My Favorite Place."


Janine Jacobs is 1 of many Ocoee
High students flourishing in the
writing project.
This year, four students will receive
prizes for their entries in the dance
choreography category: Stephanie La-
ferriere, first place; Jolyne Lowery,
second place; Ashley Kroft, third place;
and Olivia Buzzell, fourth place.
The PTSA will present Borders gift
cards to all the girls. They are all mem-
bers of both the National Honor Soci-
ety for Dance Arts and the OHS
Phoenix Dance Company.
All four entries were sent on to the
Orange County Council PTA for the
next level of judging. The works by La-
ferriere, Lowery and Kroft were se-
lected to represent Orange County at
the state level.
The annual Reflections Display and
Reception will be held April 16 at the
Educational Leadership Center in
downtown Orlando. The public is in-
vited.

Humphreys Junior High 4th-grader Ben Yoakum with his mother, Patrice
Lancy-Yoakum.


Letter from President Bush
Ben Yoakum, a 4th-grader at
Humphreys Junior High and a resident
of Windermere Downs, wants to see the
people of the world getting along with'
one another. He wrote a letter to pres-
ident Bush outlining his ideas for "Get-
Along Month."
During this time, people from the east-
ern and western hemispheres would
visit each other's countries and get to
know one another better. Ben thinks
that if people know and care about one
another, they won't fight or have wars.
Recently he received a response from
the president and a photo of President
and Mrs. Bush. He shared the letter with
the students at his school and told them
of his ideas for people getting along bet-
ter.
This is the text of the letter from the
president:
Dear Ben:
Thank you for sharing your views and
suggestions. I always enjoy hearing
from young Americans.
As you continue your studies, I hope
you will strive to learn something new
every day. You can read more about is-
sues that interest you, current events
and the history of our country by visiting
your library or by logging onto the White
House Web sites, www.whitehouse-
kids.gov and www.whitehouse.gov.
I also encourage you to set high
goals, study hard and help others in
need. Through dedication to your
schoolwork and compassion for others,
you can reach your full potential and be-
come a responsible leader in your com-
munity.
Mrs. Bush and I send our best wish-
es. May God bless you, and may God
bless America.
Sincerely,
George W. Bush

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


I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.
2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit,
while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so
that it will be even more fruitful. John 15:1-2

After what passes for winter to us Floridians, and
as spring is upon us, the rose garden is in need of
care. Even though the roses are in bloom and are a
delight to the owners as well as the neighbors, the
gardener knows that pruning time is here. Seeing
the big picture, he sets about pruning, even cutting away
rosebuds in the process, in order that they can grow
stronger and more productive in the new season. The
gardener knows that after he prunes the plants, adds
the needed nutrients, and allows for watering, in time
the roses will grow and bloom more profusely than
ever. To the untrained eye, the pruning is severe,
leaving only thorny stalks. But with the gardeners

efforts of love and care, the resulting garden will be
a sight to behold!
This season, as I knelt over one of my favorite
roses and carefully selected the stems to prune, God
reminded me that He is constantly at work in the
lives of His children. I thought of the times when my
life resembled those naked, thorny plants. Even the
people around me must have wondered how much
worse things could look! But as He cut away the
dead wood and removed the diseased parts, my shape
became more like His. Nourishment from His Word
and the refreshing water of the Spirit brought fra-
grance and beauty, much like the healthy leaves and
blossoms that will soon cover those stems in my rose
garden.
