By Michael Laval

Healthcare in West Orange Coun-
ty has come a long way since Richard
Irwin came to town.
Twenty years ago, West Orange
Memorial Hospital in Winter Garden
had been without a CEO for about
nine months and had fallen into fi-
nancial disarray in the midst of ex-
pansion and renovation projects that
had run way over budget. When Ir-
win arrived for his first day as the new
CEO, he was told the hospital did not
have enough funds to cover payroll.
"There were some difficult times
back then," Irwin told The West Or-
ange Times.
In his previous job as CEO of DeS-
oto Memorial Hospital in Arcadia
from 1977-87, Irwin had dealt with
many of the same problems he en-
countered upon arriving in West Or-
ange County. He relied on that expe-
rience to turn around West Orange
Memorial's financial affairs within
months. By 1990, Irwin was leading
the campaign to acquire funds to build
Health Central in Ocoee, which he
looks back on as one of his greatest
accomplishments.
"I think it was a truly remarkable
feat having someone lend us the mon-
ey to build Health Central," he re-
called. "Moving the hospital required
an awful lot of money for an organi-
zation that didn't have a good history,
of being profitable."
The hospital borrowed money large-
ly from Japanese and French banks
since no American institutions would
lend funds for the Health Central pro-
ject. Within five years, the hospital
had produced a balance sheet strong
enough to earn the backing of U.S.
banks.

A community hospital
One of Irwin's guiding principles
in leading Health Central has been the
importance of having a community
hospital.
"My belief is that medical care is
all about the relationship and interac-
tion between the patient and health-
care provider," he said. "Bigness does-

ange County's community hospital.


n't necessarily make that better."
Today, Health Central consists of
a 330,000-square-foot hospital and
medical office building, featuring a
full-service 171-bed acute care facil-
ity with four operating rooms, a one-
day surgical suite, an endoscopy unit,
a 24-hour emergency room, pediatrics,
ICU, PCU, a medical services unit,
surgical care unit and obstetrics.
Health Central also provides 24-hour
laboratory and imaging services, in-
cluding computerized chemistry and
microbiology analyzers, a CAT scan-
ner and an MRI.
One thing that separates Health
Central from other area hospitals is
its board of trustees, which Irwin said
is focused only on serving neighbor-
hoods of West Orange County. Many
board members are nominated by lo-


cal municipalities and community ser-
vice organizations.
"Our hospital is focused on the West
Orange community," Irwin said.
"When you are focused on the imme-
diate needs of a limited group of peo-
ple, I feel you can do a better job of
dealing with issues and providing bet-
ter care and attention."

New expansion,
breakthroughs
In an effort to keep up with the com-
munity's needs, changes are on the
horizon at Health Central, inside and
out.
Health Central will break ground
onf two projects in the coming months.
First, a new access road will be built
this fall extending from the hospital's


south side and connecting with the in-
tersection of Old Winter Garden Road
and Hempel Avenue.
In the spring, construction will be-
gin on a new medical office building
on the site of the hospital's existing
south parking lot. The five-story fa-
cility, measuring between 75,000 and
80,000 square feet, will house physi-
cian offices, along with Health Cen-
tral's new information systems de-
partment.
Within two years, Irwin said, Health
Central will be a paperless hospital.
The information systems department
will run all of Health Central's IT ini-
tiatives and serve as a backup for all
stored information in the event of a
system crash.
On Aug. 14, Health Central will
launch its paperless emergency room


documentation program. When a pa-
tient checks into the ER, his or her
medical information will be logged
into hospital computers to be accessed
by Health Central doctors upstairs or
even by primary care physicians at
other medical facilities.
"We have 50,000 people a year vis-
it our ER," Irwin said. "Identifying
what's wrong with them and getting
that information to a primary care doc-
tor or to a room where the patient is be-
ing treated has been difficult with
hand-written records."
Earlier this year, Health Central
turned to an innovative method to re-
duce the number of patients who are
given incorrect medications. Admin-
istering medication, Irwin said, is one
of the healthcare industry's most like-
ly occasions for errors to occur. Since
April, Health Central has been using
a barcoding system to prevent those
mistakes.
Each patient's hospital wristband,
along with all pills, injectable medi-
cations and IV fluids, are now tagged
with barcodes. When administering
medication, nurses use a device to
scan the barcodes on their patient's
wristband and medications, and the
computer alerts the nurse if an error has
been made. This system is designed
to ensure that the correct medicine is
given to the right patient at the right
time.
"It's truly a significant step in im-
proving the patient's outcome and ex-
perience," Irwin said.
Another technological advancement
will be coming to Health Central next
month when it unveils a new, 64-slice
CT scan. The state-of-the-art machine
will be used primarily for cardiac di-
agnostic work, Irwin said, and will
serve as a great improvement over the
hospital's current CT scan capabili-
ties.

The need for
universal healthcare
While Irwin and Health Central
have overcome some great obstacles
over the past 20 years, the greatest

Attorney Rick Geller, a partner in
the law firm Rumberger, Kirk &
Caldwell, has announced his candi-
dacy for the Orange County Com-
mission term-limited seat currently
held by District 1 Commissioner
Teresa Jacobs. Geller said he is ea-
ger to take the step from the court-
room to the political arena.
"I can't think of a better way to re-
pay the community that's given so
much to my family than to serve on the
Orange County Commission," he
said. "I feel that by taking on this new
and exciting challenge I can help pro-
tect the interests of Orange County
residents."
Geller's primary interests in run-
ning for the County Commission are
having well-planned and attractive
development, reducing school over-
crowding and relieving traffic con-
gestion and working so infrastructure


keeps pace with growth.
Rumberger, Krik & Caldwell Man-


aging Partner Frank Sheppard said in
support of Geller's candidacy: "Rick
Geller possesses an exceptional blend
of intellect and character. As a col-
league and as a friend, I am confident
Rick will lead by example as he con-
tinues to bring the best out of every-
one he meets."
Geller is active in the local com-
munity, having co-founded the Dr.
Phillips Coalition in 1999, a group of
neighborhood volunteers who seek
to guide development in the Dr.
Phillips area to complement existing
neighborhood. He also spearheaded
a campaign that raised more than $2.3
million to construct a community cen-
ter in the Dr. Phillips area.
He is married to Gabriela Geller,
M.D., a pediatrician. They have four
children, Hannah, 8, Max, 4, Melis-
sa, 2, and Caroline, 17 months. The
family lives in the Windermere area.


Winter Garden passes charter referendum mail ballot


By Michael Laval

Winter Garden's City Charter ref-
erendum mail ballot received the of-
ficial green light following its second
public hearing at last Thursday's City
Commission meeting.
Without any discussion, the elect-
ed officials unanimously passed the or-
dinance approving the ballot's lan-
guage and establishing the referen-
dum by mail. Mayor Jack Quesin-
berry was not present for the meet-
ing.
The Orange County Supervisor of
Elections Office will begin mailing
the ballots to Winter Garden's regis-
tered voters on Sept. 15, and they
must be returned to the county office
by Sept. 25. The registration deadline
for participating in the referendum is
Aug. 27 at 5 p.m.
According to City Clerk Kathy
Golden, Winter Garden had 13,113
registered voters as of Monday.
The ballots will ask voters to an-
swer "yes" or "no" to the following 14
proposed City Charter amendments:
incorporating a preamble and
technical revisions, removing inef-
fective language and providing for
reorganization and consolidation of


the charter.
changing the terms of office for
City Commissioners and mayor from
two to three years, .
requiring commissioners to reside
in the district they represent.
requiring that the city manager be
hired pursuant to an employment con-
tract.
establishing a new procedure for
filling commission vacancies. Under
this proposed amendment, if six
months or less remain in a commis-
sioner's unexpired term, the com-
mission will fill the vacancy by ap-
pointment, or, if more than six months
remain on the term, a special election
would be called to fill the vacancy.
revising rules for calling special
and emergency commission meetings
and passing emergency ordinances.
If approved, the amendment would
reduce the number of commission
members required to call special com-
mission meetings, adjust the notice
requirements for special meetings,
provide new procedures for calling
emergency meetings, reduce the re-
quired vote for enactment of emer-
gency ordinances from unanimous to
an affirmative two-thirds vote and
permit emergency ordinances to ex-
4'


pend funds in excess of the contin-
gent fund.
providing for redistricting, a re-
districting committee and the adop-
tion of redistricting ordinances.
revising charter election provi-
sions, reconstituting the canvassing
board and permitting delegation of
canvassing duties. If approved, the
city's current canvassing board com-
prised of the City Commission mem-
bers would be replaced with a board
consisting of the city clerk and two
citizens. Also, the amendment would
permit canvassing duties to be dele-
gated to the county canvassing board.
establishing a charter process for
citizen initiatives and referendum.
The proposed amendment would cre-
ate a citizen initiative and referendum
process to challenge existing ordi-
nances and propose new ordinances,
provided initiative petitions meet cer-
tain criteria and are then submitted to
the City Commission for adoption. If
not adopted, the petition could be put
to a citywide referendum.
revising powers of the City Com-
mission and grounds and procedures
for removal of commissioners. This
amendment would reduce the resi-
dency requirement for commission


candidates to one year, reduce the
number of allowable unexcused com-
missioner absences at commission
meetings from four to three and pro-
vide commissioners facing forfeiture
with the right to a public hearing.
adjust the respective duties of ap-
pointed officers and provide for an
independent city clerk. If approved, the
amendment would require all city of-
ficers to be appointed by the city man-
ager, except the city clerk and city at-
torney, who would both be appoint-
ed and removed by the commission.
The amendment would also name the
city clerk the supervisor of munici-
pal elections and permit the clerk to
act independently, of the city manag-
er while exercising certain duties.
aligning the city's procedures for
adopting ordinances with state law.
providing for charter review once
every eight years.
revising and consolidating char-
ter fiscal provisions and providing for
fiscal management. If approved, the
amendment would permit the City
Commission to reduce, transfer or
make additional appropriations or
emergency notes, require the city
manager to monitor fiscal matters and
allow the city manager to transfer


funds among programs within a de-
partment or unit.
In another matter,. City Manager
Michael Bollhoefer announced at last
Thursday's meeting that the proposed
millage rate tentatively approved at
the previous commission meeting
(nine percent below the rollback rate)
had been quoted mistakenly. The cor-
rect figure for the proposed millage
rate, Bollhoefer said, is 3.4296.
In other business, the elected offi-
cials:
passed an ordinance establishing
that Winter Garden's 2008 munici-
pal elections will be held Jan. 29 to co-
incide with Florida's Presidential Pri-
mary. The qualifying period for the
upcoming city election will be Nov.
6 at noon until Nov. 20 at noon. If
needed, a run-off election would take
place Feb. 26.
approved the site plan for Sun-
Trust Bank, to be located at the south-
west corner of County Road 545 and
-Marsh Road.
approved the site plan for Exotic
Car Transport, located at 1207 E. Sto-
ry Road.
approved the site plan for Beth-
lehem Missionary Baptist Church, lo-
cated at 55 Carter St.

Oakland proposes

same millage rate

By Amy Quesinberry

Several West Orange County municipalities are planning to roll
back their millage rate for Fiscal Year 2007-08, including Winter
Garden and Windermere. Oakland decided to set its proposed ad val-
orem property tax millage rate at the current rate because it doesn't
have a large supply of reserve funds.
At the regular Town Commission meeting last week, Town Man-
ager Maureen Rischitelli proposed a millage rate of 4.9245, the same
as the previous seven years. The commission voted unanimously
(with Commissioner Willie Welch absent) to accept the rate.
Tax reform, approved by the State Legislature, is having a huge
impact on local budgets for the upcoming fiscal year, Rischitelli ex-
plained.
She told the commission that the budget she will present "is al-
ready a bare-bones budget" and the cash flow is "basically going to
cover monthly operations."

Armed robbery at
Blockbuster
On Monday, July 30, shortly af-
ter 10 p.m., two black male sus-
pects entered the Blockbuster
Video Store, 1542 Silver Star Road
in Ocoee, posing as customers. The
first suspect, wearing a black T-
shirt and blue jean shorts, ap-
proached an employee as if seeking
assistance and then produced a gray
handgun from his waistband and
pointed it at the employee.
The employee was escorted to
the front of the store. Here the sus-
pect ordered the victims, including
customers, to get on the floor. The
second suspect, wearing a gray T-
shirt and khaki shorts and gray ban-
danna, took the victims' cell phones
and wallets. The second suspect
kept his hand under his shirt, im-
plying that he had a weapon.
The suspects, who removed the
cash from two registers and ordered
the victims into the back room of the
store, left on foot, and it is not
known if a vehicle was used.
The amount of cash and proper-
ty taken has not yet been deter-
mined, according to police. An em-
ployee used a fax machine to call
police after the suspects had the
victims pull out the phone lines be-
fore leaving. The six victims, rang-
ing in age from 16-33, were not in-
jured.
Both of the suspects were de-
scribed as 18-20 years of age with
thin builds.

this crime is asked to contact the

the Metro PCS store located at 25
W. Silver Star Road.
Officers were advised that one
black male entered the store seek-
ing phone service. While he began
to fill out an application; another
black male entered armed with a
silver handgun.
At this point the first black male
also produced a handgun, and a
third black male entered the store
also armed with a handgun.
Four adults and two children oc-
cupied the store at the time, and the
suspects forced all the victims be-
hind the counter. The adults were or-
dered to the ground while one of
the suspects held a gun to one of,
the children's heads.
The suspects took money from
the register then fled the business on
foot toward the rear. Witnesses ob-
served the suspects enter a white
older model (late 1980s or early
1990s) four-door vehicle that was
parked to the rear of the business.-
Witnesses described the vehicle as
having a square body type, possibly
being or resembling a Buick Re-
gal. It is believed that a fourth male,
the driver, was in the vehicle.
The victims were not physically
injured during the incident but were
placed in fear for their lives. A vic-
tim's advocate was called to the
scene to assist them.
The first suspect was described as
being in his late teens, 5'10", with
a thin build and wearing a beige
fishing-type hat, a short-sleeved
white turtleneck under a white T-
shirt and blue jeans.

to be in his early 20's, 5'11", with
a thin build, a goatee and wearing
a plain white Trshirt and blue jeans.

injuries. The victim was brought to
shore and transported to Orlando
Regional Medical Center.


The Orange County Sheriff's
Marine Unit responded to the scene

Windermere man sentenced to 15 years for Medicaid fraud, identity theft


Attorney Gen. Bill McCollum an-
nounced last week that an Orange
County man was sentenced to 15 years
in prison after being convicted for or-
ganized fraud and identity theft.
Alexis Robinson of Windermere
defrauded the Medicaid program by
submitting more than $519,000 in
false claims using stolen identifica-
tion information. He was prosecuted
by the Attorney General's Office of
Statewide Prosecution, which urged
the court to consider that, while Robin-
son was a first-time offender, the
crimes for which he had been con-
victed warranted a more severe sen-
tence than the minimum allowed un-
der Florida law.
"The resolution of this case should
send a clear message that Florida will,
not tolerate crimes against our Medi-
caid program, which exists to provide
much-needed medical services to


many of our citizens," said Attorney
Gen. McCollum.
An investigation conducted by the
Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud
Control Unit revealed that Robinson,
42, used the Medicaid identification
numbers of more than 40 victims,
many of them children, to perpetuate
his scheme. He gained access to the
identification information through two
medical equipment supply companies,
Tampa Bay Home Medical Supplies
and A&S Respiratory Home Medical,
both of which he owned and operated.
Although Robinson submitted hun-
dreds of claims to the Medicaid pro-
gram, most victims never received any
medical equipment or received sub-
standard equipment. Additionally, vic-
tims of the scheme had difficulty ob-
taining services from legitimate med-
ical service providers because of the
fraudulent charges associated with


their personal Medicaid numbers.
Robinson was convicted of orga-
nized fraud involving more than
$50,000, a first-degree felony, and
criminal use of personal identification
information involving $75,000 or
more, a second-degree felony. He was
also convicted of criminal use of per-
sonal identification information in-
volving $100,000 or more, a first-de-
gree felony as amended by the Flori-
da Legislature in 2003 to provide more
severe penalties to criminals engaged
in identity theft. In addition to his
prison sentence, Robinson was also
ordered to pay full restitution to the
Medicaid program.
Orange County Circuit Judge Bob
Wattles handed down the sentence af-
ter detailed testimony from victims
and an Orlando Medicaid Fraud in-
vestigator from the Attorney General's
Office.

Chamber members and giving back
to our community," said Stina D'U-
va, president of the West Orange

what we have always strived for in
our Chamber and the way we conduct
our daily business."
The West Orange Chamber is one
of only 37 Chambers in Florida to
achieve the Certified Chamber of.
Commerce designation, and this des-
ignation will be re-evaluated after five
years to ensure the Chamber contin-

Editorial


Why does the Sentinel want Windermere to switch to sewer?


It's curious why the Orlando Sentinel contin-
ues to carry the flag for a Windermere sewer sys-
tem, and is understandable why some would
question their motives.
In a Jan. 11, 2007 article "Lakes' health tied to
town's septic tanks" compared the Butler Chain's
problems to Lake Apopka and said the problem
"could be fixed by switching the town's 800
households on septic to a sewer system."
In a letter to the Times, in January 2007, Ocoee
resident Henry Morgan wrote, "Dr. Harper's re-
port was in-depth, naming a number of factors
which needed remedies. However, the Orlando
Sentinel blasted out in headlines that 'Lakes'
health tied to town's septic tanks.' For the first
nine paragraphs of the story, the reporter pound-
ed on the septic tanks and their contribution to pol-
lution."
Harper's report, which was commissioned by
the Orange County Commission and presented to
them earlier this year, made 21 recommenda-
tions.
It pointed out that 70 percent of the developed
areas within the Chain-of-Lakes basin use sep-
tic tanks (Windermere only makes up about 16
percent of the shoreline of the chain). One of the
21 recommendations is to "initiate a program to
gradually replace the existing septic tanks with
centralized sewers, beginning in the town of Win-
dermere."


The Sentinel's latest "sewer" story, "Would
sewer switch preserve Butler lakes?" once again
compares the Butler Chain to Lake Apopka and
says "to avoid the fate, the Butler study calls for
Windermere's 2,400 residents to all switch from
septic to sanitary sewer."
The study does not suggest that switching the
2,400 residents to sewer is the answer to the prob-
lem.
Among the long list of Suggestions is to, restrict
phosphorus content in fertilizer, which'the Sen-
tinel addressed in perplexing way.:
"Many residents point their fingers at the large
golf courses outside Winderinere that border the
lake chain," the story says. Sentinel writer Rich
Mckay follows that with a quote from a .Win-
dermere Country Club spokesperson saying that
they don't use fertilizer that contains phosphorus.
But if Mr. Mckay reads the study, he'll see that
it never suggested that Windermere Country Club
was a source. In fact it listed only four lakes on
that chain that were likely to have a golf course
as a source of phosphorus: Lake Louise, Lake
Chase, Lake Isleworth, and Lake Tibet. He might
want to study a map of West Orange County.
"He writes toward an end and uses any means
he chooses including complete disregard for the
facts," Morgan said about the Sentinel's latest
article.
It's curious.

Editor:
In the 2004 session of the Florida Legislature, I was
the Florida House sponsor of the Wekiva Parkway and
Protection Act. Wekiva Parkway and Protection Act
legislation is to protect the Wekiva River and its con-
tributing springs while permitting the completion of
the beltway around Central Florida.
That law required the Department of Health (DOH)
to provide a report of whether new rules were required
for onsite wastewater treatment systems in order to pro-
tect the river and the springs.
DOH did not provide a report. Instead, DOH made new
septic system rules for the Wekiva Study Area. The
rules were adopted by DOH's Technical Review and Ad-
visory Panel (TRAP).
After DOH presented the new septic system rules to
the community, the TRAP committee withdrew its en-
dorsement. That action provided the postponement nec-
essary to insist that DOH actually study the impact of
septic systems on the river and the springs.
In 2006, the Florida Legislature provided funding
for DOH to perform the study. The study should have
been performed before the new rules were issued in
2005. DOH contracted for soil tests in Orange, Lake
and Seminole counties. The studies Were supervised
by the DOH's Research, Review and Advisory Com-


mittee.
The reports that came from the study process indicate
that the septic systems efficiently treat nitrogen in
wastewater. The studies indicate little, if any, nitrogen
is found beyond the treatment fields of septic systems.
As a result of the study, or in spite of it, DOH sent a
report to the governor recommending more stringent
rules for septic systems than those overturned in 2005.
You read that correctly. The DOH is recommending
more stringent rules for septic systems than before the
study that showed that septic systems are not a signif-
icant contributor of nitrogen to the Wekiva Study Area.
The DOH report is an emphatic statement by bu-
reaucrats that the public and the legislature should not
interfere with the work of bureaucrats.
The next step is the TRAP committee meeting on
Aug. 21 beginning at 9 a.m. at the Orlando Airport
Marriott located at 7499 Augusta National Drive, Or-
lando. The meeting is open to the public, and public
input is allowed. It is my presumption that the DOH
report will be on the agenda for discussion. Discussion
may not matter. DOH may ignore the input of the soil
scientists and septic'system experts on the TRAP Com-
mittee just as it has the results of the mandated studies.

Businesses around the state now can create their own
customized hurricane emergency management plan, free
of charge. USF SafetyFlorida recently unveiled the Hur-
riplanner, a free online planning tool to help Florida busi-
nesses prepare for a storm, stay safe and in contact dur-
ing the storm and cope with its aftermath.
"We found that many businesses just don't have a plan
of action if a storm or natural disaster occurs," said Char-
lene Vespi, program director of the USF SafetyFlorida
consultation program. "Consequently, their employees,
data and physical assets are at risk. With the Hurriplan-
ner, they can enter their information and download the
finished document with a few simple steps."
The Hurriplanner is an easy-to-use yet far-reaching
tool that can be tailored to fit any business. Employers
can go to www.HurricaneBusinessSafety.com, fill in
their businesses' personnel information and then choose
the appropriate emergency management options. By
downloading the document to the hard drive, employ-
ers can customize their Hurriplanner document to suit

REAL
ESTATE

Central Florida Native
IT'S IN THE DETAILS
If you decide to sell your home
without representation by a Realtor,
you will need to apply a great deal of
attention to the details. Before offering
your home for sale, you must decide
on the sales price by analyzing all the
properties that have recently sold, as
well as those currently on the market.
It is also wise to get an outside opin-
ion about the condition of your home
via a professional inspection, followed
by necessary repairs and cosmetic
improvements.
When an interested buyer appears,
you. must prepare a binding sales
agreement including specific details on
price, financing, inspection, settlement
and possession dates, and other dead-
lines. You may also need to offer some
financing help. Assuming the prospec-
tive buyer qualifies for a loan (and that
is assuming a lot), the real detail work
begins after the contract is signed. To
arrive at a smooth settlement, you will
spend many days coordinating sur-
veyors, attorneys, inspectors, mortgage
loan officers, and others.
If you would like to talk further about
buying or selling real estate please
contact Libby Tomyn CRS at Century
21 Professional Group. Call me on my
personal message line, 321-293-2160.

Hearts and HeartScreen America.
According to Martha Lopez-An-
derson, who founded Saving Young
Hearts along with herhusband,Andy,
"There is nothing we can do to bring
our beloved Sean back, but there is
much we can do to educate parents
and communities about the immi-
nent possiblility of sudden cardiac
arrest (SCA) in children and young
adults and advocate heart screenings
for early detection of school-age
children. I encourage parents to get
their children screened,"
SCA claims thousands of young
American lives each year. Many
seemingly healthy children die sud-
denly and unexpectedly ever year
from heart problems that can often
be detected with. a simple, painless,
non-invasive test, the electiocardio-
gram.
Screenings, which normally cost
$49 for children, are being offered
for only $10,' courtesy of Saving
Young Hearts with the help of many
local and national' sponsors.
Additionally, the first 100 partici-
pants to register will receive a $10
refund check at the .time of their
screening. The services provided
can cost $500-$800 at outpatient fa-
cilities, and health insurance gener-
ally will not cover this test unless a
young person exhibits symptoms.

It's about a family with a genetic
mutation in its bloodline, and the
book is told by the final inheritor of
the gene, who traces the recessive
mutation down through three gener-
ations stretching from a tiny vil-
lage overlooking Mount Olympus at
the beginning of the century to the
Detroit race riots of 1967.
The Oct. 18 book discussion will
feature Glass Castle by Jeannette,
Walls. This is a memoir of resil-
ience and redemption and a reve-
latory look into a family at once
deeply dysfunctional and uniquely
vibrant. When sober, the author's


brilliant and charismatic father cap-
tured his children's imagination,
teaching them physics, geology and
how to embrace life fearlessly. But
when he drank, he was dishonest
and destructive. Her mother was a
free spirit who abhorred the idea of
domesticity and didn't want the re-
sponsibility of raising a family. The
Walls children learned to take care
of themselves as a result.
The Treasure of Montsegur by
Sophy Burnham is the book for the,
Nov. 15 meeting. This novel about
the Cathars mixes romance with re-
ligious history.

Residents asked td beware of hu
Recently a Polk County Ameri- T
can Red Cross volunteer received pro
a strange phone call from someone par
who stated they wanted to confirm a any
scheduled "free American Red Cross inf
hurricane home inspection." cai
The volunteer pressed the caller by,
for a name and phone number, but org
the person would not give it to him tio
and just kept telling them they were
scheduled. ,
Eventually the person hung up.
Although the volunteer tried to get
the number through caller ID servic-
es, the number was blocked.
Residents in Central Florida
should be aware that the American
Red Cross does not conduct so-
called hurricane home inspections.
Anyone called about such services
should be treated with suspicion and
possibly reported to authorities as a
possible scam.

"I think the goal of any hospital has always been hav-

practice and the cost and the lack of adequate insurers
have been detrimental to recruiting high-quality doctors
to Florida."
. Nurses, he added, are truly special people but have
simply been in short supply.
As Irwin approaches his 20th anniversary at Health

ing to provide the community with the best in healthcare

"I love what I do," he said. "I love that I wake up every

rise since Princeton Hospital on Mercy Drive closed in
1999. The amount of money lost on treating uninsured
patients, Irwin said, is a great burden on the hospital and
results in higher costs for insured patients.
Hospital emergency rooms, as the name suggests, are
intended for medical emergencies. Since they cannot
deny patients, however, ERs have become the only place
where millions of uninsured Americans can access any
form of healthcare. The ER, Irwin said, is also the most
expensive place for providing care, which further com-
pounds the problem.
"There will be no competition in healthcare until ev-
eryone is covered because if the uninsured can only ac-
cess healthcare in the hospital ER, then the hospital can-
not compete," he said.
America's healthcare system, Irwin said, is holding
the country back from competing on a. global scale.
The United States, he said, spends about 16 percent of
its Gross National Product (GNP) on healthcare, while
Canada, for example, sees only about eight percent of its
GNP go toward healthcare.
"If we change the system to provide care for all and
payment to all providers, the cost or percentage of our
GNP spent on healthcare will change for the better," Ir-
win said. "If we don't change, we'll continue to see more
and more of our GNP go to healthcare costs, which will
make it increasingly difficult for the country to compete
in healthcare against other nations."
It's a misconception to think that all of America's 50
million uninsured are poor. Millions, Irwin said, are
middle-class citizens working for employers who do not
offer health insurance.
"Quite honestly, the federal government hasn't taken
care of its share and is placing the cost of healthcare on
businesses, and most are not covering their employees,"


healthcare is the right of every-
one in our great country."
Sadly, the largest segment of
the population without insur-
ance is children, Irwin said.
"Just because you're a child
born
into a family whose employ-
er doesn't provide healthcare
doesn't mean that child doesn't
deserve care from a pediatri-
cian," Irwin said.

-- Local soccer players find success in Europe


Snow wins FSU intramurals
Dr. Phillips High graduate Danny Snow (holding trophy) helped his Florida State University intramural
basketball team win the school's first national intramural title. Snow and his teammates traveled to Ohio
State University, which hosted the championship 30-team tournament. Snow will graduate in December
with a bachelor's degree in sports management and plans to pursue an MBA at the University of Central
Florida.


Several West Orange County
youth soccer players recently re-
turned from two weeks in Europe
with the Central Florida Kraze U17
boys soccer team, which won the
Tivoli Cup international tourna-
ment in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Among the local athletes who
traveled and played with the Kraze
were Dr. Phillips residents Trent
Taylor and Scotty Funston, Gotha
residents Jeff Goldstein and Tyson
Pryor, Cordero Young of Wind-
ermere and Kevin Edman of Apo-
pka. West Orange County parents
Lewis Goldstein, Todd Taylor and
Vince Edman went along for the
ride and cheered on the team.
Playing up in the U18 age group,


the Kraze defeated both U18 and
U19 teams from Norway, Poland
and Denmark en route to the cham-
pionship. The Kraze defense domi-
nated its competition, allowing
only 2 goals and recording 4 shut-
outs. In the finals, the Kraze faced
a Danish all-star squad and went to
overtime with a scoreless tie. In the
penalty kick phase, Freedom High
goalkeeper Jhojan Obando made a
critical save and followed it up by
scoring the game-winning goal.
The Kraze then traveled to Goth-
enburg, Sweden to participate in
the prestigious 33rd annual Gothia
Cup. Also known as the World
Youth Cup, the tournament fea-
tured more than 1,600 teams from


70 nations. In an Olympic-type
setting, the Gothia Cup opening
ceremonies were held in Ullevi
Stadium, which welcomed 55,000
spectators.
The Kraze dominated their group
in pool play, outscoring opponents
England, India, Sweden and Esto-
nia by a combined score of 23-3.
The amazing run came to an end
when the Kraze lost a heartbreak-
ing 1-0 quarterfinal game against
the local professional club team,
BK Hacken.
During the two-week adventure,
the boys also visited historical cas-
tles, sampled Danish and Swedish
cuisines and learned about Scandi-
navian culture.


Lake Cane hosts US Youth Games
Lake Cane Tennis Center in Dr. Phillips recently hosted tennis events for the US Youth Games. The event,
sponsored by Walt Disney World, featured 60 youths and 10 teams from across the nation. Dr. Phillips

The Orange County Regional
History Center presents the "Art
of the Stamp," its first Smithsonian
exhibit since being awarded affili-
ate status in 2006, Aug. 24 through
Nov. 18.
The exhibit presents original art

ican stamp design and the nation's
postal history.
The story of stamps is the story of
America squeezed into two square
inches. Depicting a person, event
or aspect of nature or culture in this
space is the design challenge faced
by artists who create artwork for
approximately 80 American stamps
each year.
The exhibit features 100 works of
original art, created by 52 top pro-
fessional illustrators and designers.
Highlights include the most popular
stamp of all time, "Elvis Presley,"

West Orange High students, staff, alumni and parents gathered last week to honor David Laniewski (4th

Educator receives the royal treatment at Walt Disney World


West Point Middle/High School choral teacher Mel-
ody Raef of Virginia never dreamed she'd get the royal
treatment, but the 10-year choral instructor got a taste
of the "suite" life at Walt Disney World recently as the
winner of a special promotion.
Raef was the winner of Disney's Royal Treatment
Castle Suite Giveaway, a program created by Disney's
Youth Group Programs to recognize one outstanding
educator for enriching lives and delivering creative
experiences for students. As a result, the Raef family,
including husband David and their children, 8-year-
old Madison and 5-year-old Samuel, recently enjoyed
a three-night Disney vacation, including one night in
the new Cinderella Castle Suite. .
"It is such an honor to be nominated by my students,"
said Raef. "They wanted to give something back to
me, and the fact that they did that is really rewarding.
I teach them everyday to keep going and believe in
dreams, and that is why this is so amazing, because


they just gave me the dream that no other could ever
top."
The family was also treated to a special VIP viewing
of Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show and
Fantasmic at Disney-MGM Studios and an exclusive
Illuminations fireworks cruise in a pirate-themed boat
at Epcot.
The dream experience was the result of the dozens
of entries Disney received supporting Raef's inspiring
teaching style.
"In high school, music was power," wrote Kathleen
Harrell in her nomination of Raef. "She found the qui-
et girl in the comer who looked down when you passed
her in the hallway. She found the cheerleader who got
on everyone's nerve. She found them and gave them
solos, a voice, not only in the melody of song but in the
harmony of their class and their lives. She taught us to
see how important each of our classmates was not only
in the choir but in each day that we faced together."

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


"But I want you to know, brethren, that the
things which happened to me have actually
turned out for the furtherance of the gospel, so
that it has become evident to the whole palace
guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in
Christ."
Philippians 1:12,13


First of all, God wants us to know that all
things work together for His good. God is able
to take our present situation and mold it toward
the furtherance of the Gospel. Even what may
look like a bad situation can become an oppor-
tunity to be a witness of Jesus Christ.
Who knows what God will do? If we will
remain true to the faith, and refuse to compro-
mise our belief, God will use us in a mighty way.
If we, on a daily basis, continue to walk the talk
of our faith in Christ, others will begin to believe
the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

PRESBYTERIAN


Our Faith in Jesus Christ should be evident to
everyone around us. People should see, hear,
and experience a difference when they are near
us. We should be living examples of God's righ-
teousness. People should know that we are
Christians and we shouldn't hide the truth of our
faith in Christ.
It's time for us to stand up and be bold in our
faith, regardless of situations or people. It was
evident to the prison guards that Apostle Paul
was a Christian. He spoke with boldness of his
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
We're not chained to the world anymore, we
are chainedto Christ, a new creation in Him, old
things have passed away. We have a new walk,
a new talk, a new mind and a new spirit. We
shouldn't act like we used to; we are not chained
to our old lifestyle anymore!
