Student routes to school

now feature new paths,

bridge in Windermere


More
improvements are
coming, but the town
is on its way to
bikepath connectivity.

By Kathy Aber
Many students riding bicycles
or walking to Windermere El-
ementary School on Monday
found their route had been en-
hanced over the summer.
As part of the town's bikepath
master plan, existing sidewalks
have been connected and ex-
tended throughout town. When
Phase 1 of the plan is fully imple-
mented, there will be continuous
hard-surface bike paths from the
north end of Main Street through
downtown to Chase Road and
east along Sixth Avenue to Apo-
pka-Vineland Road.
While most of the sidewalk
work will be done by next week,
there are several sections along
Sixth Avenue near Johnson Park
and Highland Avenue that are in-
complete.
The council will consider the
cost ($10,000-$23,000) and de-
sign for these sections, as well
as locations for mid-block cross-
walks, next month. Tom Kelly,
who headed the project for Pro-
fessional Engineering Consul-
tants, estimated the crosswalk
cost, including solar-powered
signal lights to be $8,500 each.
But the most significant im-


provement this summer for
walkers and bicyclists has been
the complete renovation of the
bridge over the canal connecting
Lake Down and Lake Butler at
the north end of town.
Contractors worked feverishly
over the last few weeks and com-
pleted the project before school
started on Monday despite a dis-
covery that required extensive
additional work. The project was
funded by a $213,000 Federal
Department of Transportation
grant.
Kelly explained the added re-
pairs to the Town Council during
its meeting Aug. 14. Kelly esti-
mated the cost of the additional
work to be $25,000-$35,000.
He said as the bridgework
progressed the construction
crew discovered steel rebar that
had been left exposed so that
the footing was not continuous
at the northeast comer. This situ-
ation had caused rotation of the
abutment, and corrective work
involved a plan to rehabilitate
the abutment. It was extended
out seven feet to the south with a
possible infringement on private
property owned by Jess Rubio.
Kelly said Rubio had been
very cooperative, allowing the
work to progress; however, a
survey and, possibly a quitclaim
deed, could be required.
The town Maintenance De-
partment was called in, Kelly
said, and responded quickly to
remove a stand of bamboo.
The new bridge is now less
steep than the old one and well-


founded on two piers. Contrac-
tors extended out the approach
on the north side of the ramp to
provide a smooth transition for
cyclists and pedestrians.
As safety precautions, guard-
rails have been installed and the
addition of low-wattage, solar-
powered lights are being con-
sidered.
Kelly said the work included
anti-erosion measures ex-
tending a drain pipe eight feet
and adding sand/cement bags.
Graffiti remaining on the
bridge last week will be painted
over or removed.
The Butler Chain Conserva-
tion Association is discussing
holding a student art contest in
September to design a mural for
the side of the bridge.
When Phase 2 of the master-
plan is complete, there will be
bikepaths on both sides of the
main streets. /
On a continuing matter, the
Town Council reviewed a draft
of the developer's agreement
between the town and Veranda
Partners LLC, for the Main
Street Shoppes PUD. The coun-
cil asked Town Attorney Tom
Wilkes to make a few changes
and provide a revised copy to
each member for a final review
so the document could be sent
to the developer within a few
days.
In other business, the coun-
cil:
increased the park pass fee

Oakland revises its

Comprehensive Plan


Growth
necessitated the
needed update
in the town.
By Amy Quesinberry
The Comprehensive Policy
Plan (CPP) for the town of
Oakland was last updated in
1997, and in the past 10 years,
the town has seen significant
growth and a tripling of its
population.
At the Aug. 14 Oakland
rve Town Commission meeting,
Town Planner Roland Magyar
tal presented an analysis of why
ed the changes were needed and
ar. highlighted the more important
a changes in the CPP.
In his report, Magyar said


the objectives included meet-
ing the requirements of the
state's growth management law
as it applies to schools, water,
transportation, capital improve-
ments, proportionate share and
community vision; meeting
the requirements of the state's
Wekiva Parkway and Protection
Act; providing a master land-use
plan for the Oakland Avenue
and Tubb Street corridors; and
determining the community's
vision for growth and change
as it relates to affordable hous-
ing, transportation, annexation,
major corridor land uses and
meeting state requirements.
The town has held a number
of citizen participation work-
shops and meetings beginning

Derailed trains...pure-milk ice cream... agate marbles

92-year-old native reflects on

early days of Winter Garden


Photo by Amy Quesinberry
George Reaves is 92 and showing no signs of slowing
down.


By Amy Quesinberry

Few people can say they knew the first
mayor of Winter Garden and the current
mayor, but George Reaves can. He is a Win-
ter Garden native and, at age 92, can recall
shopping in Mayor A.B. Newton's general
merchandise store in the early 1900s. He also
attends church with the current mayor, Jack
Quesinberry.
Born to Rollins "Pinkney" and Stella
Reaves in a little frame house on South High-
land Avenue, Reaves and his family moved to
North Highland a few years later.
"I can remember Mrs. Cappleman com-
plaining to my mother that I was tearing up
her kids' toys," he said.
Reaves' mind is sharp like that full of
memories and stories from his childhood.
"Back in those days, you bought flour and
[animal] feed...and it came in cloth bags, and
the cloth was a pretty good quality, different
colors, different patterns... .That cloth could
be used for making shirts and underwear and
whatever."
The place to shop? Newton's grocery store,
of course, which was located on South Main.
Street (where West Orange Glass and Mirror
is now). Newton, the man who would become
the city's first mayor, also ran a hardware store
and post office and was a fixture in downtown
Winter Garden for many years.
The railroad tracks ran alongside his store
through a section of low-lying land that held
water after a rain. Probably once a week,
Reaves said, the ground would get real soft
and the rails on the track would separate a
little bit. The Tavares & Gulf would jump
the track and the "train runner" would drag
cord wood out of the tinder car and use it to
get the train back on the track.
"Mr. Newton was a great old fella; he was


a fine old man," Reaves said. "He acted like
he was grumpy, but he really was OK."
Reaves' grandparents homesteaded much of
the land in the Beulah area near West Orange
High School. Newton used to grow field peas
in the Reaves garden.
"I shelled them and carried them to the store
to get 25 cents," he said.
As a child, Reaves had his eye on a bicycle
that belonged to James Poole, a neighborhood
kid. Poole sold him the bike for $14, and to
come up with the money, Reaves bought 25
baby chicks, raised them to fryer size and sold
them to Newton's grocery store.
Reaves can also recall as a little boy when
"old man" Walker brought his Model T Ford
truck to Main Street close to downtown and
Newton's store.
"He'd park his truck up on the vacant lot
across from where the feed store is now, and
he'd jack up the left rear wheel and take it
off," Reaves said. "That would leave only
the brake drum exposed, and that brake drum
acted as a pulley, and he'd run his belt to go
back to his ice cream machine.
"Made good ice cream from whole milk,
right from the cow," he said. "I don't remem-
ber what it cost, probably a nickel a cone or
less."
Food memories are usually fond memories,
and Reaves' are no exception. He also recalls
the tempting aroma of citrus.
After students arrived on the grounds of Til-
denville Elementary, they weren't supposed
to leave until school let out for the day. The
South Lake Apopka Citrus Growers packing-
house was just down the road from the school,
and the sweet smell of oranges was sometimes
more than Reaves could resist.
"One day at lunchtime, I decided I wanted

Shooting leaves
man wounded
At approximately 4 a.m.
Monday, Orange County
deputies responded to 1348
Lake Whitney Drive in West
Orange County in reference
to shots fired. The home
is the residence of former
Orlando Magic player De-
Shawn Stevenson.
Deputies arrived and found
evidence of a shooting. Fur-
ther examination of the scene
revealed bullet holes in two
vehicles and the residence,
and there appeared to be
fresh blood on at least one
of the cars. Deputies say the
occupants at the scene were.
not cooperative with them
and did not desire to pros-
ecute.
Approximately 30 minutes
later, a man driving a white
Cadillac Escalade drove up
to Health Central medical
center in Ocoee seeking treat-
ment for gunshot wounds to
his legs. Deputies responded
to the hospital to determine
if the man's injuries might
be related to the shooting on
Lake Whitney. Drive.
According to deputies at
the hospital, the shooting
victim, Curtis Ruff, 31, was
not cooperative, but the in-
vestigation has linked his in-
juries to the shooting incident
at Lake Whitney Drive.
This incident remains an
ongoing investigation.

Independent short film shot in Winter Garden


Local Winter Garden resident
Jarrod Haniks was involved in
producing a short film last
spring entitled Crossroadz,
which will premiere at the
Central Florida Film Festival
Aug. 30 through Sept. 2. (Visit
www.centralfloridafilmfestival.
corn for tickets and schedules).
The film is described on
its Web site this way: "This
whimsical farce starts at
Woodstock, 1969. As thousands
gather to celebrate peace and
love, Jefferson 'Airplane'
Ballzack is born. This child
of 'euphoric' parents begins a
journey that would years later
lead him to a demented 'Oz,'
the most painful 24 hours of his
life and a crossroads that would
change his life forever."
Hanks said, '"Practically the
entire 25-minute short was shot
here locally in Winter Garden.
There were a couple of shots
in different locations, but 95
percent was right here."
Hanks was a world-class
gymnast competing for the USA
Gymnastics in the 1991 and '92
World Championships. As a
member of the USA Team, he
accumulated nine international
individual titles, including
the 1992 American Cup in
Orlando.
He moved to Florida in 1999
to work as a stuntman at Disney.


After a couple of years, he and
his wife, Heather, moved to
Winter Garden to work as youth
ministers at the Church of the
Messiah.
Now he is moving into the
film industry and has teamed up
with Robert Scott, a fellow actor/
stuntman, to form Threshold
Pictures.
"This is our first major project
and filming in Central Florida,
and we are extremely excited
with the results," Hanks said.
"The filming took place back in
April 2006, and we shot some
more in July. By the end of the
summer were able to screen a
finished product with some test
audiences.
"With the film edited and
finalized, we are now submitting
to some festivals. We are excited
that our world premiere will be
here in Central Florida at the
Central Florida Film Festival."
Director Robert Scott said,
"I couldn't be happier with my
experience filming in Winter
Garden. The future is very
bright for production as long as
there continues to be a strong,
supporting film community
here. I wouldn't hesitate at all
to film here again should the
opportunity present itself."

Health Central
implants its first
defibrillator
Peter Taylor, M.D., performed
the first implant of an automatic
cardioverter-defibrillator
(AICD) at Health Central in
May and has implanted several
others since his initial case.
This represents good news for
the community since patients
previously had to be transported
to other .hospitals in order to
have this, surgery done. The
enhancement of cardiac services
demonstrates the commitment
from the physicians and Health
Central to bring the latest
technologies and treatment
options to the community.
An AICD is utilized to
monitor the heart and detect an
arrhythmia or abnormal rhythm.
Once it's detected, the AICD
sends out an electrical current
to thehe art muscle, shocking the
heart back into a normal rhythm.
The device can geatly reduce a
patient's risk of having a fatal
heart attack.
AICD units can be implanted
without major surgery and, in
most cases, are performed under
local anesthesia. There are
special circumstances when they
are performed under general
anesthesia.
The surgery typically takes
only a couple of ~hours to
perform. A patient should be
able to return to normal activities
shortly afterward.

Letter to the editor


-From our archives

Old Times


Editor:

Orange County students headed back to
school this week, a familiar routine that will
feature a number of changes this year as a
result of bills passed during the 2007 legis-
lative session.
To mark the beginning of school in Or-
ange County this year, Gov. Charlie Crist
held two press conferences in the area on
Monday.
At both events first at Apopka Elemen-
tary School and later at Jones High School
-- the governor spoke about the changes
students would experience this year.
The biggest change for the 2007-2008
school year will face students in elementary
schools and is an attempt to educate young
students about the importance of proper ex-
ercise and nutrition habits.
Childhood obesity, a problem that con-
cerns many and has received a great deal of
attention of late, has gained an even higher
profile in Florida as a result of the televi-
sion show, Shaq"s Big Challenge, which fea-
tured NBA superstar and Orlando resident
Shaquille O'Neal working to teach Florida
students how to take care of their health at
a young age.
Shaq's Big Challenge also featured Gov.
Crist in one of the episodes, as the governor
is a strong proponent of physical fitness and
proper nutrition, and urged lawmakers to
make a change in schools.
This year, the Florida Legislature did ad-
dress'this issue; and starting this week, Flor-
ida students will be required to receive 30
minutes each day, or 150 minutes per week,
of physical education in school.
So as not to put an undue strain on school
districts, physical education teachers are not
required to provide all of the instruction and
the logistics of the program are flexible.
The law does not necessarily require 30
minutes away from class time, though stu-
dents and teachers will be making great ef-


forts to fit the additional exercise into the
traditional class schedule, in addition to
physical education classes.
Another change this year involves an. in-
novative plan to forge a partnership between
Florida's public schools and leaders in busi-
ness and industry throughout our state.
Passed by the Legislature in May, the
Florida Career and Professional Education
Act was "...created to provide a statewide
planning partnership between the business
and education communities in order to at-
tract, expand and retain targeted high-value
industry and to sustain a strong, knowledge-
based economy."
Middle and high schools this year will
be required to plan curricular opportuni-
ties for students to explore and concentrate
their work around career paths that interest
them.
Provisions of the bill will require schools
to provide rigorous, career-related class
work, in addition to traditional core classes,
that can lead to industry certification at the
end of their academic course.
This program could be very promising for
our area, as it will give students an increased
opportunity to focus on the future and help
teachers to create career-minded goals for
their curriculum.
We hope to address this issue again this
year to provide protection to regionally im-
portant industries that may not be consid-
ered high-demand throughout Florida, such
as agricultural paths in the Orange County
area.
I wish our students, teachers and parents a
safe and successful school year.
If you have any questions regarding leg-
islative changes for this year or the Flori-
da Career and Professional Education Act,
please do not hesitate to contact my district
office at 407-880-4414.

From an editorial: B.P. Hannon, who died this
week, was a longtime friend of The Winter Gar-
den Times. He had a close relationship with this
newspaper through a succession of ownerships.
Old-timers have vivid memories of B.P. moving
up and down the sidelines at football games or
taking pictures at meetings, dinners, weddings
(and other events). They also remember the
hearty "hello" they would always receive in his
Plant Street shop. It is ironic that we could not
locate a picture of B.P. in our office inasmuch
as our walls and file drawers are filled with pic-
tures that he took. [His obituary ran without a
picture, but one was located to include in the
editorial].
Josie Roell, choir director of the First United
Methodist Church of Winter Garden, is appear-
ing as Bloody Mary in the Once Upon a Stage
production of South Pacific.

The First Presbyterian Church of Oakland is
marking its centennial. In 1887,. a petition was
presented to St. John's Presbytery by Presbyteri-
ans living in Oakland to organize a new church.
An organizational meeting was held on the first
Sunday of September 1887 in a brand new house
of worship immediately erected on the order of
the Presbytery. It was the first of three in which
the congregations of Oakland Presbyterian have
worshipped over the past century, This one also
served as a house of worship for the Baptists,
Methodists and Episcopalians.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR
IN A RESORT AREA
Buying a house in a beautiful resort
location can be the realization of a life-
time dream to live where you can
enjoy year-round outdoor recreation,
rich cultural opportunities and a close-
knit community. Since lifestyle and real
estate factors vary greatly, it is impor-
tant to ask the following questions
about any area you are considering.
1. Does the natural environment offer
a variety of outdoor activities? The best
investment locations are near water for
boating, fishing and swimming, have
areas for walking and "hiiihei for
sports such as tennis and golf.
2. Are home sales high, with home
prices increasing? These are signs of a
healthy real estate market. A popular
area where buyers outnumber the
inventory of homes is a good invest-
ment. 6
3. Are there excellent hotels, spas,
restaurants, shops and art galleries?
Pr:pertn; ajiue' ..*ill ( ij:iii ,'ij ,r i : r. Iin
a prime location with world-class guest
services. People who visit on vacation
will be inspired to return and to invest
in local real estate. |
Enlist your real estate agent's help to
choose a resort area such as ours that
exemplifies these features.

buying or selling real estate, please

8A The West Orange Times Thursday, August 23, 2007


Reaves
some oranges. I went down to
help myself to some oranges,
and I got caught.
"Miss Annie Connell poor
thing she was going to paddle
me. When I went to get my pad-
dlin' she was busy and said she
didn't have time and to come
back another time. 'That thing
went on about four or five times.
That was the worst paddling that
I ever got that I never did get. I
remember that just like it was
yesterday."
Another "sweet" story?
Reaves can remember lunchtime
at school. Students could pay 11
cents for a complete lunch or
purchase a croquette for 6 cents.
The tradeoff was being able to


(Continued from front)


stop by Byron's Bakery (where
Shoe Brothers is now) on Joiner
Street on the way home from
school to buy four cinnamon
buns for 5 cents.
Kids were always saving their
spare coins, and when Reaves
wasn't spending his money on
cinnamon buns, he was putting
aside the change to buy glass
marbles. A kid with lots of extra
pocket money could buy an agate
playing marble for 60 cents at
Bray Hardware.
Children can be opportunists,
especially when money is
involved. Reaves remembers the
day several brick buildings along
Main Street were burned out and
the neighborhood kids were


offered 1.5 cents a brick to chip
off all the dried mortar.
"If you were lucky," he said,
"you could clean two bricks a
day. Two or three kids had their
daddy's hatchet, and they did
pretty good."
Downtown Winter Garden
was once the place where every-
thing happened.
"It was always a thriving little
town," Reaves recalled. "There
was a lot of activity around."
Trains rolled through. Grocery
stores stayed open past midnight.
Folks hung out on Saturday
nights, often catching a movie at
the downtown theater.
The railroad tracks ran through
the center of town (where the


George Reaves gets all around Winter Garden with the help of his motorized bicycle.


West Orange Trail is now), and
people tended to back their cars
up to the tracks and park them
early in the day so they could
claim the best parking spot for
socializing that night.
"The groceries complained
that folks sit around and talk and
have fun and party till towards
midnight then they'd take their
grocery list and go to the grocery
store," Reaves said. "They were
always fretting about that, saying
they could have left their grocery
list with them and they could
have had their grocery list filled
and ready when they got there."
Reaves also recalls a man by
the name of Morgan who stood
on the corner of Plant and Main
streets collecting insurance pre-
miums from his customers.
"I think he was collecting 15
cents a week," Reaves said. "I
remember him because he would
often tell people, 'I hope you
keep living and paying.'"
When the ice plant was being
built at Highland Avenue and
West Plant Street (the site of the
future City Hall), Reaves said, a
60-inch pipe lying nearby was
too tempting for the local boys.
One little nuisance named Floyd,
who liked to take peaches from
neighbors' trees, was being
chased by Reaves and his friends.
'When Floyd tried to hide in this
large pipe, the boys threw grass
into one end and smoked him out
the other.
Once the ice plant was built
next to the railroad track, box
cars with full citrus crates pulled
up to the plant and huge chunks
of ice were placed at each end of
the box car.
"That was the only refrigera-
tion the fruit had until it reached
market," Reaves said.
Citrus and farming were, at
one time, major industries in
Winter Garden, and there were a
number of packinghouses dot-
ting the city.
According to Reaves, the
South Lake Citrus Growers
Association "didn't have enough
ladies to pack oranges" 'at its
packinghouse, so officials had a
two-story house built near
Tildenville Elementary.
"They got girls from Alabama
to come down during the citrus
season," Reaves said.
"They had a homemade bus that
picked them up... .Some of them
stayed here, and some of them
married some very prominent
men here in the community."
Farming was big too cab-
bage, "lettuce, cucumbers and
beans and farms started on
the east side of Dillard Street and
continued along Bay Street as far
west as Lakeview High School.


Farmlands went all the way to
Lake Apopka to the north. Two
Tilden brothers, C.G. and L.W.,
each had farms during the
Depression Era, Reaves said,
and he can remember men stand-
ing around downtown hoping
C.G. Tilden's farm trucks would
pick them up for a day's work at
10 cents an hour. His business
was located at the corner of Park
Avenue and Bay Street.
Cucumbers grew by the lake,
and when the weather turned
cold, workers nailed together 10-
to 12-foot cypress boards to cre-
ate a tent to protect the cucumber
plants.
The vegetable rows were so
long, Reaves said, that farm
hands fertilizing the crops had to
carry their lunch with them in the
morning "because they didn't
have enough time to walk back
for lunch."
Reaves's father was a first-
class carpenter, but that career
came to a halt when a pile of
chimney bricks came tumbling
down on him from a second-
story roof on a house, he was
helping build near Lake
Apopka.
With a father out of work
because of severe injuries,
Reaves, a 16-year-old freshman
at Lakeview High, quit school
and got a job.
"Luckily, my mother hap-
pened to know the wife of this
man who was foreman of the
Orange County Road and Bridge
Department... so he gave me a
job," he said. "I'm sure he
shouldn't have because they had
many men on the list ahead of
me; and, besides, I wasn't really
big enough or heavy enough to
do the work. They put up with
me."
This job which paid $4.50
to $7.50 weekly, depending on
the weather enabled him to
get his two sisters through high
school and put one through two
years of beauty college in
Orlando.
In the early 1930s, he started
working at the Griffin Chevrolet
dealership at 1 W. Plant Street
(where Tony's Liquors is now).
His pay of $5 weekly soon turned
into $9 a week, then after a few
months he was bringing home
$13 each week, "an above-aver-
age salary."
He added: "But I always
thought I was an above-average
mechanic. I had built up a good
reputation early on, and it stayed
with me."
Prior to that, he assembled
Model T cars at Pounds Motor
Co., still located downtown
today.
He enlisted in the Air Force


during World War II and served
fouryearsin Georgia, Mississippi,
Japan and the Philippines.
"I wouldn't take a nickel for
all that experience," he said.
After Reaves left the service
in the late 1940s, he returned
home to Winter Garden and took
a job in machinery maintenance
at Winter Garden Citrus Growers
Association. He would remain
there for several decades.
Soon after coming home from
the war, Reaves experienced one
particular evening that changed
his life. He went on a blind date
with the woman who would
become his wife two months
later, and they would be together
for the next 59 years.
Frances died in the spring and
is buried at Oakland Presbyterian
Memorial Gardens. He feels lost
without his Frances. She lived
her final months at Health
Central Park, but for a year and a
half prior to that, he took care of
her pretty much by himself.
"I thought it was tough then,
but I'd like to do it all over
again," he said wistfully of that
time with Frances.
He also worries about what
will happen to his house of 37
y ears and all his belongings once
he's gone. Frances collected
owls, and those comforting
reminders of her are in every
room.
"It's not 4 big house," he said,
"but it sure seems like it a lot of
the time."
He knows he'd like to see an
older retired couple eventually
live in the house he helped design
and build.
But for now, he keeps an eye
on his weight and is healthy,
aided only by the pacemaker he
had put in seven or eight years
ago.
"I'm an awful lot like an old
car: The battery's still pretty,
good, but the engine's worn out,'
he said.
No longer able to drive,
Reaves gets around town on his
motorized three-wheeled bicy-
cle. On Sundays, he rides -to
either the First United Methodist
Church of Winter Garden up the
street or Oakland Presbyterian
Church a few miles away,
depending on the weather.
"I know I look crazy on it, but
it's far better than walking, and
that's the only transportation I
have. I can use it to go to the
hardware store, the bank and
local places like that. Plus, it's a
fun thing. It's fun to get out on it.
Being almost 93 years old,
you're limited to a lot of these
things, and you can't do a whole
lot of walking anymore.
"But I feel lucky."

Windermere


Windermere Union book club to meet


Windermere Union Church,
United Church of Christ, has
book club meetings at 7 p.m.
at Border's bookstore in Ocoee
every third Thursday of the
month. Border's is at 9441 W.
Colonial Drive. The church
is at 10710 Park Ridge Gotha
Road.
All are invited to participate.
Call 407-876-2112 for more in-
formation.
The following books will be
discussed at upcoming meet-
ings.


On Sept. 20, Oprah's Sum-
mer Book Club selection Mid-
dlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
will be discussed. 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
generations.
The Oct. 18 book discus-
sion will feature Glass Castle
by Jeannette Walls. This is a
memoir of resilience and re-
demption and a revelatory look


into a family at once deeply
dysfunctional and uniquely vi-
brant. When sober, the author's
brilliant and charismatic father
captured his children's imagi-
nation, teaching them physics,
geology and how to embrace
life fearlessly. But when he
drank, he was dishonest and
destructive.
The Treasure of Montsegur
by Sophy Burnham is the book
for the Nov. 15 meeting. This
novel about the Cathars mixes
romance with religious history.

tarians in Central Florida.

mately 145,000 women Rotar-
ians worldwide, many of them

Football will kick off

Friday with DP, Ocoee,

Olympia, West Orange

seeking gridiron glory


Photos and story
by Michael Laval

Regardless of what your
calendar might say, fall begins
this Friday when high school
football teams take the field
for preseason Kick-Off Classic
games throughout the area.
The 2007 season is full
of promise for West Orange
County teams. The Dr. Phillips
Panthers are loaded with blue-
chip college recruits and have
their sights set on winning a
district title and more. The
Knights take the field with a
new head coach who hopes to
build on Ocoee's breakthrough
sophomore season of 2006. The
Olympia Titans are stocked
with seniors who are hungry
to avenge last year's six losses.
The West Orange Warriors also
look to rebound from a losing
season with six home games
this year.

Dr. Phillips
The Panthers will find out
very early in the season whether
they can live up to their lofty
expectations. After hosting


Winter Park in this Friday's
Kick-Off Classic, Dr. Phillips
opens the season with three
tremendous challenges -
local powerhouses Edgewater
and Apopka and Byrnes High
from Duncan, S.C.
DP plays at Edgewater,
perhaps its toughest opponent,
on Thursday, Aug. 30. The
following Thursday (Sept. 6),
the Panthers will make school
history by playing at Duncan,
. S.C. in a game that will be
broadcast on national television
by Fox Sports South.
"We are extremely excited
about playing on national
television," said DP Head
Coach Kevin Pettis. "Brynes
is a national power and has a
lot of talent. Traveling always
presents problems, so we're
going to use the game as a
learning experience that will
get us ready for the playoffs
and help us learn how to win
on the road."
The Panthers' 6-foot-4-inch
senior quarterback Chris Wilkes,
who has verbally committed to
play next year for Ole Miss,
is eager to lead DP in the

"We've never had a shot

well."
Dr. Phillips returns home to
host Apopka in a non-district
matchup on Sept. 14. The
Panthers host rival Olympia on
Oct. 12 and fight to keep the Ole
Orange Crate at West Orange
in the Nov. 9 regular-season
finale.
DP's quest for the District 5
championship will likely face
its greatest obstacle on Nov. 2
at Boone. Pettis and his players
are aiming to win every game,
take the district title and make a
run at the state championship.
Dr. Phillips went 9-3 in 2006,
captured the school's first
district title in nine years and
broke or tied 16 school records
before falling in the regional
semifinal of the state playoffs.
The Panthers are confident
they can build on that success
with one of the most talented
rosters in school history. After
losing only three offensive
players and three on defense
due to graduation, DP returns
eight starters on each side of
the ball.
Opposing defenses will have
to contend with a balanced DP
offense that threatens to rack
up yardage and points through
the air and on the ground. The
offense features four players
who have verbally committed
to Division I college football
programs. Joining Wilkes in
the Southeastern Conference
next fall will be fullback
Thomas Shuler (Arkansas)
and wide receiver Damion
Allen (Auburn). Tailback

corn as the No. 5 fullback
in America and will use his
power to steamroll defenders.
The lightning complementing
Shuler's thunder is Embry
Peeples, an agile speedster who
has been timed at 4.4 seconds in
the 40-yard dash. Rivals rates
Peeples as among the nation's
top 25 all-purpose backs.
Leading DP's aerial attack
will be Wilkes, who showed
off his cannon-for-an-arm at
last week's practice by kneeling
on the grass and firing the ball
60 yards through the air. His
favorite target this fall will be
Allen. The 6-foot-2-inch, 180-
pounder boasts 4.5 speed and is
listed as one of the country's top
100 wide receivers.
The Panther defense will be
anchored by seniors Clay Lee
(SS), Thomas Gooden (LB),
U.D. Slater (LB) and Bradley
Moore (DE). Junior linebacker
E.J. Carter and sophomore
cornerback Lo Wood are also
among the defense's most
talented players.
Pettis points to speed as his
team's greatest strength, while a
lack of size, he said, could be its
primary weakness. Dr. Phillips
looks to sprint past the local
competition this season.
"We want to be the measuring
stick for Central Florida," Pettis
said.

Ocoee
Most new high schools
in Central Florida endure a

string of losing seasons before
establishing a winning football
program. Ocoee seems driven
to break that mold.
After posting a 2-8 record in
their inaugural 2005 campaign,
the Knights produced a stunning
turnaround last year with an
8-3 mark and a season-ending
victory over Winter Park in
the Gridiron Bowl. This fall, a
new head coach and some new
players strive to prove that last
season's effort was no fluke.
With the departure of Greg
Dailer, Odoee promoted
offensive line Coach Clint
Moles to the helm. Moles
knows what it takes to build a
championship team. The former
offensive tackle won a national
title playing for the University
of Colorado in 1990. Before
arriving at Ocoee High, Moles
spent nine years as an assistant
coach at Winter Park High.
The first-year head coach
will break-in with a team of
fresh faces. Last year's squad
said farewell to four offensive
linemen, two receivers, a
tailback, tight end and the
starting quarterback. The
defense lost an end, a linebacker
and all its starting comers and
safeties.
Three linemen, a running
back and a receiver return
to the offense with starting
experience. The defense
welcomes back three linemen
and two linebackers.
Moles expects seniors Kenny
Martin (noseguard), Tymiller
Newton (LB), Ryan Terrell
(RB), Rickeem Jackson (WR),
Jevell Williams (RB) and
Wesley Venturino (TE) to make
an impact and lead the way for
Ocoee's younger players.
Junior tailback Austin
Flowers is primed for a breakout
year, Moles said, while junior
Ryan Wilder and sophomore
Dustin Denman will compete
at quarterback. Among the
most outstanding newcomers at
Ocoee should be senior tackle
Iseary Hill.
"He's 6 foot 5 inches and 280
pounds with some great natural
ability," said Moles. "He should
make an immediate impact."
On defense, Moles expects
his young defensive backs to
successfully fill the void left in
* the secondary. Senior defensive
end Jarec Solomon, he added,
should solidify the front line.
"Defensively, our front seven
are an experienced group with
speed and strength," Moles said.
"Offensively, the improvement
in our overall team speed, O-line
included, will help us."
The Knights play at Oak
Ridge for this Friday's Kick-
Off Classic. The home opener is
set for Aug. 31 vs. Winter Park.
Two of the biggest home games
of the season should be Olympia
(Oct. 5) and East Ridge (Nov. 2).
Ocoee plays at District 4 power
Apopka on Sept. 21. The annual
"Battle for the Shield" will take
place Thursday, Oct. 18, at rival
West Orange.
Moles said his goal is to
keep raising the bar for Ocoee
football.
"We are building a program,
not just a team," he said. "We
continue to add to the foundation
of values that Coach Dailer


Warrior linemen must stay low and hit hard in this exercise.

redemption for 13 Titan seniors
who want to avenge last year's
4-6 record. Olympia's wealth of
experienced players gives Head
Coach Bob Head reason to be
excited.
"Our mission is to play every
game like it's our last, with 100


percent effort," Head said. "Our
goal is to win them all."
Taking the snaps at quarterback
will be senior Nick Beecher. He
expects to benefit from a strong
offensive line that includes
seniors Michael Grimes, Dustin
Heiser, Linworth McKenzie and


Michael Williams. Lining up in
the backfield are a pair of senior
running backs, Chris Eaddy and
Carl Odom. Underclassmen
Tyson Pryor (FB) and Ryan Hall
(TE), Head said, should also
make an impact on offense.
Olympia will primarily use a

utilize the talents of its players.
The corps of senior Titan
defenders features Cornelius
Sterling (LB), DeAndre Dorn
(DL), Joseph Precht (LB),
Brandon Strong (DB) and Dedric
Hiltonen (DL). Head named
linebacker Austin Dier and
lineman Christian James as up-
and-coming players who could
make an impact on defense.
The Titans participate in this
Friday's Kick-Off Classic at
Edgewater. The home opener will
take place Aug. 31 Vs. Oak Ridge.
District 4 leaders East Ridge and
Apopka play at Olympia on Sept.
21 and Oct. 19, respectively. The
Titans host rival West Orange for
the annual "Battle for the Fence"
on Oct. 25. Olympia's other chief
rival, Dr. Phillips, will host the
Titans on Oct. 12.
Olympia enters the season,
Head said, with a successful
future in sight.
"Our goals are to run a first-
class program at a high level,
develop character and win
championships," he said.

West Orange
The Warriors' game plan is
to get on a roll early and ride
that momentum throughout the
season. West Orange opens with
five home games, including this
Friday's Kick-Off Class vs.
Evans.
A year ago, West Orange was
forced to defer its first two home
games due to the installation of
the artificial turf at Raymond
Scre s Field. As a result, the
Warriors will host six regular-
season games, plus the Kick-Off
Classic.
The Warriors will rely on
home-field advantage to make up
for 21 seniors lost from last year's
team that went 3-7. Leadership
will have to come from four
seniors on each side of the ball.
Nathan Keller expects to make
an impact for both units., lining up
at running back and linebacker.
Also playing ironman roles are
seniors Arron Fisher (WR/DB)
and Kyle Morrison (DT/OT).
Running back Ryan Middleton,
tight end Lawrence Chastang and
defensive end Sergio Magana,
all seniors, will be counted on
to make plays. Junior Blake


Dieterich returns as a second-
year starter at quarterback for
the Warriors.
In 15'years as head coach at
West Orange, Tim Smith has
faithfully relied on the Wing-T
offense. This year, Dieterich
will command a spread shotgun
attack designed to make use of
West Orange's strengths.
"Our running backs and
offensive live are solid," Smith
said. "We have three very good
running backs and our O-linemen
are very strong and are hard-
workers."
Among that bunch are junior
tailback Jerrami Weekes and
junior guard Vu Nguyen. A
pair of sophomore standouts -
linebacker Calvin Washington
and kicker Matt Cappleman
- have impressed Smith in
preseason practices.
The Warrior defense has
also adopted a new philosophy,
switching from a 4-3 to a 4-4
formation. The defensive unit's
front eight is very good, Smith
said, while the secondary lacks
depth.
The coaching staff under Smith
has also undergone some changes
in the offseason. The Warriors
welcomed new assistant coaches
Andre Thomas (receivers), John
Colbert (offensive line) and Mike
Toscano (inside linebackers).
"I'm really excited," Smith
said. "I think I've got one of the
best staffs I've ever had."'
* Following this Friday's Kick-
Off Classic, West Orange hosts
non-district opponents University
(Aug. 31), Cypress Creek
(Sept. 7) and Oak Ridge (Sept.
14), then District 4 newcomer
Wekiva (Sept. 21). Three of West
Orange's final four games come
against its rivals. The Warriors
host Ocoee on Oct. 18, travel to
Olympia Oct. 25 and close out the
season at home vs. Dr. Phillips
on Nov. 9.
The Warriors hope their new
game plan and lots of home
cooking will lead to results on
the field.
"Our goals are to win the
district and host playoff games on
our new 'Pride of West Orange
County' turf field," said Smith.
"My goal is to win every game
because to expect less is not
giving your all."

congratulated Evan for his
Pinehurst round by saying,
"This undoubtedly is just the

"It was such an honor to play
at Pinehurst where legends
have played," said Evan. "I
thought of Payne Stewart's

holing my putt on 18. I was so
proud when I was announced
on the tee as,: 'Now from Win-

The West Orange High PTSA
has recently announced that
Challenge Day is coming to
West Orange County. During
the last week of August, WOHS,
Ocoee High, Lakeview Middle
and University High will be
presenting the special day to
100 students and 25 adult pre-
selected participants at each
school.
The dates of the event at the
individual schools are Monday,
Aug. 27, Ocoee High; Tuesday,
Aug. 28, Lakeview Middle;
Wednesday, Aug. 29, University
High; and Thursday, Aug. 30,
West Orange High.
Challenge Day is a high-
energy program in which
participants are guided through
a series of interactive learning
activities with the goals of
increasing self-esteem, shifting
dangerous peer pressure to
positive peer support and
eliminating the acceptability of
teasing and violence.
Challenge Day also addresses
the issues of racism, harassment,


conflict management, suicide,
alcohol and other drugs. The
program hopes to inspire
participants to live, study and
work in an environment of
compassion, acceptance and
respect. It also encourages them
to take their positions as positive
leaders of change throughout the
school and in the community by
spreading the message to "Be
the Change."
The program has received
many awards from the juvenile
.justice system and local
governments nationwide. It
has been featured on Oprah, in
Chicken Soup for the Teenage
Soul and in the Emmy Award-
winning documentary, "Teen
Files: Surviving High School."
Since 1987, the Challenge
Day program has touched the
lives of nearly half a million
teens and adults nationwide, but
this is the first time the program
has been undertaken in Central
Florida. In light of recent violent
incidences in schools across
the U.S., the program is more


important than ever.
It has been documented
as reducing disciplines and
suspensions in schools and
serving as a benchmark for
best practices in middle and
high schools throughout the
country. Addition information
on the program can be found at
www.challengeday.org.
The WOHS PTSA's first
Challenge Day and follow-up
activities of the school's "Be
the Change" Club are supported
by generous grants from these
organizations: the Bond
Foundation, Manheim's Florida
Auto Auction of Orlando,
Lockheed Martin, city of Winter
Garden, city of Ocoee, Pryor &
Pryor (Subway), Windermere
Pools & Spas, Lougheed
Resource Group, WOHS SAC
and the WOHS PTSA.
The goal is to make the day an
annual event. Anyone who would
like td make a contribution to
"Be the Change" for a successful
Challenge Day should contact a
local participating school.

Spare change adds up to $5.2 million in Olive
Garden's Pasta For Pennies charity drive


Thousands of pennies, nickels, dimes and
quarters clinked and clanked into jars across
Central Florida this year as approximately
260,000 local elementary, middle and high
school students emptied their piggy banks
and pockets to collect $560,000 for The
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society during
Olive Garden's 13th annual Pasta For Pennies
program. Nationally, a record $5.2 million
was raised.
Students from 274 local schools in Central
Florida participated in the campaign by
dropping coins into collection jars in their
classrooms during a three-week period in the
school year. The class collecting the most
funds in each school received a pasta party
delivered to their classroom and served by
a local Olive Garden restaurant. The money
raised through student contributions supports
much-needed research initiatives and patient
and family services.
"These students continue to have a


profound impact on their community with
their commitment and dedication to Pasta For
Pennies. We celebrate this great achievement
of raising $5.2 million with them," said Dave
Pickens, president of Olive Garden. "Their
passion for this program is truly inspiring."
Top fund-raising schools in Central Florida
were South Seminole Middle School in
Casselberry with $12,000, Space Coast Jr./
Sr. High School in Cocoa with $11,011.42
and Winter Park 9th-Grade Center in Winter
Park with $6,957.49.
"Olive Garden's Pasta For Pennies rallies
students to join us in our commitment to fight
blood cancers and provide assistance to our
patients and their families throughout their
cancer experience," said Layne Kauffman,
campaign coordinator of The Leukemia and
Lymphoma Society of Central Florida. "The
funds raised by these dedicated students will
help us continue to make advances in the
search for cures."


Fifty-two community members attended the first rehearsal for the newly formed Garden
Community Choir this past week at West Orange High. The choir is under the direction of
Jeff Redding. The first concert will be held Oct. 7 at the Winter Garden Music Fest 2007.
Rehearsals are every Monday night at WOHS. Annual membership dues are $100, in
addition to a'$30 joiner's fee. Payment can be brought to the first rehearsal, and checks
should be payable to Winter Garden Heritage Foundation. Anyone needing alternative
fee structure/arrangements should talk to Dr. Johan Bergh, choir chair. It is not too late to
join the choir For more information, call Bergh at 407-353-2006.

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 pal-
ace 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 op-
portunity 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. Ifwe, on a daily basis, continue to walk
the talk of our faith in Christ, others will begin
to believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

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
righteousness. 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 chained to 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!

'Art of the Stamp'
opens this week
at History Center
The Orange County Regional
History Center presents the
"Art of the Stamp," its first
Smithsonian exhibit since
being awarded affiliate status
in 2006, Aug. 24 through Nov.
18.
The exhibit presents original
art used to create iconic postage
stamps and offers a rare glimpse
into American 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 professional
illustrators and designers.
Highlights include the most
popular stamp of all time,
"Elvis Presley," and the two
original Norman Rockwell
pieces. Designs span the 1960s
to the present and give a
glimpse of the process from
pencil sketches to final
masterpieces.
In honor of National Stamp
Collecting Month and the
exhibit, the History Center has
teamed with the Central Florida
Stamp Club, Florida Stamp
Dealer's Association and the
FloridaStampShows.com to
host a Postal Stamp Fair on
Oct. 6.
Stamp collectors from
Central Florida will show their
wares, including prize stamps
valued up to six-figure amounts.
Visitors can purchase from
collectors, and appraisers will
be on hand to evaluate stamp
collections, also. Children can
enjoy free how-to workshops
and free stamps to start their
own collections.
Located at 65 E. Central
Blvd., the center is open
Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5
p.m., and Sunday, noon to 5
p.m. General admission is $7,
with discounts for students,
seniors and children ages 3-12.
For more information, visit
www.thehistorycenter.org or
call 407-836-8500.
