Ocoee raises most recreational fees


By Mary Anne Swickerath

For the first time ever, the
Ocoee City Commission has
formally adopted fees for the
use of its recreation centers,
community centers, athletic
fields, park pavilions (includ-
ing the Starke Lake Gazebo)
and its recreation, athletic and
swimming pool programs. Up
until this approval last week,
the charges were established
by, the Parks and Recreation
Department. But the City
Commission and City Man-
ager Rob Frank .directed the
department to review the fee
structure for all of its facili-
ties and programs, compare
Ocoee's fees to those charged
by surrounding cities and


present a complete list of rec-
ommended fees to the elected
officials;
The new schedule approved
Aug. 21 raises most of the
charges for use of the facilities
and participation in programs.
The fee for renting the Jim
Beech Center gym went from
$60 an hour to $100 an hour
for residents and $120 an hour
for non-residents. To rent the
Community Center will now
cost $65 an hour for residents
and $80 an hour for non-resi-
dents instead of the former fee
of $50 an hour.
All the fees for the football,
baseball and softball fields
,were also raised from a gen-
eral charge of $15 an hour to
$20 an hour for residents ($25


with lights) and $25 an hour
for non-residents ($30 with
lights). Soccer field charges
changed from $15 an hour
to $20. an hour for residents
and nbn-residents ($25 with
lights).
The fees for the city's be-
fore- and after-school pro-
grams, summer day camp,
youth basketball and adult
softball, basketball and flag
football also went up.
Previously free programs
such as youth open gym and
adult open gym basketball
and volleyball now carry a
fee, and annual passes will be
available.
The fees for swimming at
the Family Aquatic Center
were also raised, including a


new charge for senior citizens,
who swam free under the old
schedule.
City Commissioner Scott
Anderson said he thought ho-
meowner associations should
continue to use city meeting
rooms free of charge, and City
Manager Frank agreed that
HOAs could be exempt for the
time being.
The commission decided
that the fee schedule, although
approved, would be brought
,to the Parks and Recreation
Advisory Board for its input
and possible amendments.
Rosemary Wilsen, a mem-
ber of that board, asked the
commission to put the issue

the pre-reading skills of their
children by more than 70
percent.

Fa m-

d e
scribed
her as
caring,
giving,
gener-
ous and
selfless, "
and her /
door was
always open to anyone in need.
"We always had someone stay-
ing with us," said her son, Leroy
Pittman of Clermont. "Whether
it was helping the local preach-
er or a relative in need, Mom
and Dad went the extra mile for
others." After moving to Full-
ers Crossing from Soperton,
Ga., in 1933, she began work
as a fruit packer in Winter Gar-
den, sometimes working until
11 p.m. to get the fruit out. Her
late husband, Barney, worked
in the groves until an accident
disabled him. He then began
studying to become a watch-
maker. In 1945, Callie and Bar-
ney founded Pittman Jewelers.
They opened the store in the
Edgewater Hotel in downtown
Winter Garden, and she was
an integral part of the business.
Members of the Chattanooga
Lookouts Minor League team
stayed at the hotel and would
stop by to visit or buy a nice
piece of jewelry for girls back
home. Fishermen from the Lake
Apopka fish camps also visited.
In 1981, Leroy "Buddy" Pitt-
man and his wife, Vivian, pur-
chased the business and Callie
continued to work for several
years. The business continues
to operate in Clermont today

Volunteer drivers
needed to transport
cancer patients
For cancer patients, the
distance between them and
their treatment facility can often
hold them back from lifesaving
treatments. The American
Cancer Society's Road to
Recovery program eliminates
that barrier by providing free
transportation for patients to
and from medical facilities.
Road to Recovery is in
need of volunteer drivers,
particularly in Winter Garden,
Ocoee, Apopka, southeast
Orlando and south Orlando.
Spanish-bilinigual drivers are
also in demand.
The volunteerdriving requires
no special skills or education -
just a safe driving record and a
valid driver's license, a vehicle
in good working condition, free
time and a desire to help.
Cancer patients with
transportation needs can call
800-227-9954 to arrange a ride.
Forinformation on volunteering,

Veteran
first Purple Heart when he was
wounded in the leg during
an ambush. He also rescued
another solider from a Humvee
that had burst into flames after
hitting a landmine.
After a year in Iraq, he
was reunited with his wife in
Germany, where their daughter
was born in 2005.
In January 2006, he signed
up for another four years in the
Army and was originally to be
stationed in Hawaii.
His orders were changed,
and he returned to duty in Iraq
in August 2006. His unit was
conducting house-to-house
searches when he sustained his
most recent injuries Nov. 12.
Cope's Humvee ran over an
improvised explosive device
(IED) in Baghdad. He lost
both legs above the knee and
sustained severe injuries to his
right hand and minor injuries
to his left hand. In addition,
three of his comrades died in
the explosion.
Doctors have determined
Cope will be able to walk
again but because he is a
bilateral amputee, walking
on his prostheses will require
a great deal of exertion. A
wheelchair will be required
when he becomes physically
exhausted.
In his remarks, Col. Hering
said he was truly honored to
say a few words to Sgt. Cope
and his family.
"They will live with the
injuries and memories of war
the rest of their lives," he said.
James Fleming of American
Legion Post 109 presented
.Sgt. Cope with the legion's
Grateful Appreciation For
Service Medal on behalf of
all Central Florida veterans
- VFW, American Legion,
Marine League' and Disabled
Veterans of America. Fleming
asked Erica to pin the medal
on Joshua.
When Lt. Gen. Garnet
stepped to the podium to
speak, he said, "I have to get
my emotions in check."
Garner was asked to return
to active duty in 2003 by
Secretary of Defense Donald
Rumsfeld and Served six
months as director of the
Office of Reconstruction and
Humanitarian Assistance to
re-establish order in war-torn
Iraq.
HesaidSgt. Cope "represents
a very special breed he's an
infantry soldier. He's one of the
warrior class of our nation,"
and the audience members


(Continuedj


rose to their feet in applause.
Garner traced the history
of the U.S. Army back to
George Washington's winter
encampment at Valley Forge in
1776, calling it the foundation
of the Non-Commissioned
Officers Corps.
"Here is the epitome of that
Non-Commissioned Officers
Corps in Joshua Cope," said
Garner.
"Sergeant, it's the few of
you on whose broad shoulders
we survive."
He said, "Those like Erica
who wait.. .are also one of our
treasured assets. You're our
heroes. Your courage, sacrifice
and commitment so deeply
embodies the strength and
principles of our country."
He thanked the Copes for
choosing West Orange County
as their community.
Next, Garner explained the
significance of the Combat
Infantryman's Badge, saying it
is evdry soldier's most prized
medal. He showed the Combat
Infantryman's Badge he earned
40 years ago this month in
Vietnam and then presented it
to Sgt. Cope.
In the presentation, Garner
said he could think of no finer
place for his medal than in Sgt.
Cope's home. The audience
stood again and applauded
Cope.
Home At Last Project
Chairman Bill Criswell asked
the audience to pledge its

community.


support for the project. He said
W.O. Habitat would need the
help of the entire community
to raise the $300,000 required
to build the Copes' home.
He said this project is unique
because Habitat is recognizing
Sgt. Cope's military service as
the customary "sweat equity"
unusually required of Habitat
families.
The Rotary Club of
Windermere helped W.O.
Habitat launch its fund-raising
campaign by presenting a
$10,000 check.
Criswell explained that a
special bank account has been
set up and is dedicated to this
project. He said donors can
make checks payable to West


Orange Habitat For Humanity
with a designation for the
Home At Last Project.
To donate to the project, send
contributions to West Orange
Habitat For Humanity, P.O.
Box 38, Oakland, FL 34760.
Following the reception, Sgt.
Cope and his family returned
to San Diego, where he will
need some additional hand
surgery, which could require
up to a year of treatment. He
will also participate in physical
therapy to learn to walk on his
.prostheses.

Sgt. Joshua Cope smiles broadly as his wife, Erica, and the rest of the Tanner Hall
audience stand and applaud his distinguished military service. Lt. Gen. Jay Garner had

OMS principal discusses storm policy


Dear Parents,

As all of you know, we had very severe
thunder and lightning storms which started
right before dismissal time Friday afternoon. As
principal, my first priority is to keep all children
safe. Remember, just two years ago, we had two
students from Frangus Elementary who were
struck by lightning when they got off of their
school bus here in Ocoee. Tragically, one of.the
students died.
Due to the severity of the storms in Central
Florida, we have a district 30/30 policy regarding
dismissal in such situations. If the sound of
thunder is heard within 30 seconds after a
lightning strike, students must be kept inside
for the next 30 minutes. While we did have one
break in the storm when we were hopeful that
we would be able to dismiss students, that break
did not meet the 30-minute guideline.
All students were kept inside the buildings
in their sixth-period class or last class of the
day. Front office staff continued to answer the
school phone as much as they possibly could.
Teachers were directed to allow students to use
cell phones to contact their parents to inform
them that we would not dismiss students due
to the severe lightning. Staff members and
parent volunteers worked to have peanut butter
crackers, sandwiches or snacks delivered to the
classrooms, making sure that food was delivered
first to any classrooms holding students with-a
medical need. I know many parents wanted to
check their children out of school, but in order
to keep children safe, we do not allow them to
walk outside during a storm. We also do not
allow parents to enter the buildings to pick up
students for the safety of all students.
An emergency Connect-ED phone message
was sent to all parents both in English and
Spanish to inform parents that for the safety
of all students, we would not dismiss until 30
minutes after the last lightning strike. As the
storm continued, a second emergency phone
message was sent to update parents. This
message'also indicated that a third message
would be sent out as soon as we were able to
dismiss students. Emergency messages are
delivered to every phone number listed for a
student, including cell phone numbers.
At the same time the emergency messages
were being sent, I worked with our district
Community Relations Department to contact
the local media. Local stations were helpful by
continuously reporting that we were holding all
students due to severe weather.
To make the evening even more difficult,
Progress Energy lost one of three legs of power
coming to the school. This took out our phone and
computer systems, hampering communication
efforts even more. However, using school radios
and cell phones, I was able to stay in touch with
the police and our district office. Orange County
Public Schools Site Security was on site to.assist
with the dismissal policy. Due to how long the
storm had continued, a decision was made to
allow parents to go to classrooms and check
out students with identification shown to the


teacher. Grade-level office personnel assisted
parents who did not know their student's sixth-
period class. We made every attempt to assist
parents to check out their students in a calm and
orderly manner.
Later in the evening, it was determined that
it was safe enough to release our students
who ride school buses. OCPS Security, Ocoee
Police Department, Sheriff Kevin Beary, OCPS
Transportation and Ocoee Middle School staff
all worked together to move the buses safely.
In order to keep all children safe, students
and teachers were informed that students
.who normally walk or ride bikes would not
be permitted to do so in the dark. Extra buses
where on site to take these students home. A
third emergency message was sent out to inform
parents that buses were being dismissed and that
they could come to check out their students.
Since I know we have many parents without
transportation, the message also informed
parents that buses were on site to take any
student home who was not picked up by 9 p.m.
The message was also sent to local media.
I am relieved and happy to say that all children
did make it home safely Friday night. We know
from experience that this is not always the case.
When faced with a crisis situation, my first
priority is to keep all students safe. Beyond that,
I make every attempt to handle emergencies and
to communicate with parents and the community.
As in every difficult situation, a meeting was
held immediately that night to debrief the events
of the entire evening. Ocoee Police Department,
OMS administration, OCPS Transportation and
the chief of security for OCPS all met to review
the events of the situation. The debriefing
information will continue to be discussed Within
and among all agencies and departments in order
to help prepare for future emergencies.
I want to personally thank the faculty and staff
of OMS for your commitment to our students.
Faculty and staff stayed to ensure that every
child was supervised and fed. I. would like to
thank our parent volunteers who stepped in
to assist us. Your helping hands were greatly
appreciated. I also want to thank the local media
for getting the information out to our parents.
Next, I want to thank our district and learning
community administrations who helped us each
step of the way throughout the evening. Finally, I
want to thank the parents who, even though they,
too, were very frustrated by the situation, have
shared their gratitude for the work which was
done by all departments to keep their children
safe. Please rest assured that as a school aid
district we will continue to review our policies
in order to ensure our No. 1 goal of safety for
all students.
In closing, many of you have called or sent
e-mails with your gratitude or concerns. Since
I cannot respond to each of you individually,
please accept this letter detailing the events of
Friday evening and my appreciation for your
support.

Ocoee parent upset over rule


Editor:
Shameful! On Friday I sat with hundreds of
other parents outside of Ocoee Middle School
from 3:30 until 7 p.m. The reason is Principal
Clark would not release our children due to
stormy weather. I totally understand and agree
that they should not let the bike riders or walk-
ers go home, but COME ON! I'M THE PAR-
ENT! And I had a car along with all the other
parents there. The situation worsened and par-
ents became very irate because even during the
breaks in weather she would not release our kids
because of the "Rule." (Whose rule? Dr. Clark's
or the Orange County Board of Education?)
The rule is, as long as there's even one strike
of lightning during a 30-minute period, the kids
have to stay put for another 30 minutes until it's
clear for 30 minutes! The power went out, and
their backup came on in the front office. No one
could/would answer me about whether or niot


the kids had a/c. (My daughter told me it got
very hot for about hour and was starved by that
time.)
The Ocoee Police told everyone to leave the
front office. I realized that little kids and tod-
dlers were now out in the lightning and rain.
When asked if the little ones can at least stay in-
side, they never answered that either. Now, this
is the same lightning that they were protecting
the middle school kids from but forget about
the little ones, eh? After a very long while, an
officer told us they would open up the cafeteria
for "further information." That was 10 minutes
till 7.
Finally at 7 p.m., even though there was still
lightning, she released the car riders. The bus
riders didn't get home till 9 p.m. or later.

Commissioner Brummer praises

TRAP volunteers


Editor:


Phase I report as its basis to change septic sys-
tem rules. DEP's Phase I report is acknowl-
edged by the name of the consultant that per-
formed the study. The Phase I study is known
as the MACTEC Report.
DOH's study indicates that septic systems
contribute 6 percent of the nitrogen found in
the Wekiva River. DEP's MACTEC report
claims that the 6 percent contribution is 22 per-
cent. The MACTEC Report is criticized for its
methodologies.
The TRAP committee met Tuesday, Aug. 21,
to consider DOH's rule proposal. The leader-
ship of TRAP declined to endorse DOH's new
rule. TRAP agreed to postpone consideration
of the new standards for septic systems until
Phase II of DEP's research is complete.
In the 2006 regular session of the Florida
Legislature, we secured a specific appropria-
tion of $250,000 for a DEP study of the inven-
tory of nitrogen sources in the Wekiva River
and its contributing springs. Almost $200,000
of that amount remains available for DEP to
perform Phase II of its inventory.
When Phase II of DEP's study is complete,
the Technical Review and Advisory Panel
should be able to determine whether DOH's
proposed rule is necessary or valuable.
It is encouraging that. the leadership of
TRAP would stand up to the out-of-control bu-
reaucracy of the Department of Health. TRAP
members are all unpaid volunteers. I very much
appreciate their service to the residents of the
Wekiva Study Area and the state of Florida.
Frederick C. Brummer
Orange County Commissioner


Previously, I have written to inform you of
the status of proposals by the Department of
Health (DOH) as they impact septic systems
in the Wekiva Study Area. I have often de-
scribed efforts and success in securing funding
for DOH to study of the impact of septic sys-
tems on the Wekiva River and its contributing
springs. I also wrote of the study funded for
the Department of Environmental Protection
(DEP) to inventory the sources of nitrogen in
the Wekiva Study Area.
Recently, DOH proposed new rules for septic
systems in the Wekiva Study Area. The DOH
used as their basis for the new rule DEP's study.
You read that correctly. DOH paid $250,000
for their own study of the nitrogen contribution
of the septic systems in the Wekiva Study Area.
DOH did not use that study for their rule mak-
ing. Instead, DOH used DEP's study results
as the basis for its proposed rules. Figure that
one out!
DOH's next step was to take the proposed
rule to its Technical Review and Advisory
. Panel (TRAP) for its approval: TRAP is an ad-
visory committee comprised of engineers, soil
scientists, septic system experts and install-
ers, skilled construction specialists and people
knowledgeable in the onsite wastewater treat-
ment industry. DOH has had very good rule-
making success since it has followed the rec-
ommendations of TRAP. Prior to the creation
of TRAP, DOH invariably had to defend its
rules in court with different success rates for
each proposed rule.
DOH has been criticized for using DEP's


A friend remembers Bill McNatt


Editor:

A memorial to honor my friend, Bill McNatt,
who passed away on Aug. 17 was placed at the
Ocoee Hardees the day after his death. Bill,
some might say, was "chairman of the BORED"
of the local Hardees. The memorial included a
vase of colored roses, a bacon-egg-and-cheese
biscuit, a cup of coffee, a cup of ice water and
the sports section of the Orlando Sentinel.
He would always arrived around 6 a.m. and
sometimes stay until about 9 a.m. He would
always sit in the comer in the same chair every
day, which was turned down in his memory.
This position allowed him to greet everyone as
they came in. He would share his newspaper
if you wanted to read it but always kept the
sports page.
Most of what he liked was conversations


with his friends, Asa, Bill, Don, Tom, Carl,
Bob, Dave, Marvin, Gene, Theo, me and many
others. Subjects would be sports, politics, local
gossip reminiscing about bygone days and
maybe the merits of healthy eating (although
this subject only required about five seconds
before he would move to something else).
In this fast-paced life we live in today, maybe
we could all learn a lesson from Bill McNatt:
Take time out of your busy schedule and sit
down with your friends, enjoy your coffee and
biscuit with some good conversation, and your
day will be better for it. Hardees will never be
the same without Bill, and now the "Hardee
Boys" will reminisce about Bill and those
bygone days.

UF survey: Floridians not entirely

sold on new property tax measure


By Cathy Keen

The fate of a proposed property tax amend-
ment that would affect the existing Save Our
Homes amendment in a January statewide ref-
erendum is too close to call, a new University
of Florida survey finds.
Fifty-eight percent of Florida voters said
they would vote for the new "super exemp-
tion" measure, two percentage points shy of
the 60 percent super majority needed to make
the change to Florida's constitution, said David
Denslow, a UF economics professor who led
the research.
"Whether the amendment will pass remains
a wide-open question," he said. "Besides the
statistical insignificance of the difference be-
tween 58 and 60 percent, there is half a year
remaining before the vote."
The referendum, which goes to voters Jan. 29,
would allow homeowners to choose between
keeping the 3 percent property tax cap already
available under the Save Our Homes provision
or a new provision that would increase their
homestead exemptions. If the amendment goes
into effect, homes bought after that date would
not qualify for the Save Our Homes cap.
The survey indicates that nearly two-thirds,
65 percent, are inclined to stay with Save Our
Homes even if the referendum gives them a
choice, Denslow said.)And few respondents
who report owning less expensive homes a
group that would benefit from the new super ex-
emption said they would switch, he said.
UF's Survey Research Center added questions
about the proposed property tax amendment
to,its monthly consumer confidence telephone
survey in July. Of the 287 Florida homeowners
who responded, 277 said they had formed an
opinion. They were also asked the selling price
of their homes. The survey had an error rate of
between 3 and 4 percent.
The tax-cutting measure the Legislature is
sending to voters allows homeowners to stay
with the terms of the current Save Our Homes
Amendment, which restricts the increases in
their property tax bills to the rate of inflation or

3 percent of the assessment for the prior year,
whichever is lower. Or they could take the new
super exemption that knocks 75 percent off of
the first $200,000 of a home's value and 15
percent off the next $300,000. Most likely to
benefit in the near term would be people plan-
ning to buy expensive homes, Denslow said.
"Anyone who moves into a new house that is
worth $500,000, for instance, would be bet-
ter off immediately because they would get a
$195,000 exemption compared to a $25,000 ex-
emption under the existing system," he said.
However, if house prices were to rise as rap-
idly over the next five years as they did between
2000 and 2006, homeowners might be better
off with Save Our Homes, which would limit
annual increases in their assessment, he said.
Another group to gain by making the switch
would be those with houses worth less than
$200,000 because the taxable value of their
house would be no more than 25 percent of its
market value, Denslow said. Yet 71 percent of
homeowners surveyed who said their houses
were worth $200,000 or less said they would
remain with Save Our Homes, he said.
Denslow believes they might be reluctant to
make the change because it is irrevocable.
"Once you go with the super exemption, you
have given up the Save Our Homes exemption
forever," he said.
Survey respondents were more likely to say
they would remain With Save Our Homes if
they had lived in their current houses for several
years and expected to remain there for a long
time, Denslow said.
Sixty-four percent of Republicans favored
the proposed amendment, as did 58 percent of
Independents and 54 percent of Democrats.
Denslow predicts the impact of the proposal
would be "substantial" and vary widely by
county. Rich, rapidly growing counties, such
as Palm Beach, won't be hurt too badly because
a large proportion of its housing stock is worth
more than the $200,000 exemption line, while
counties such as Levy and Dixie, where growth
is much slower and most new homes are much
cheaper, will suffer, he said.

Native T y
CAPITAL GAINS FOR
HOMEOWNERS
Changes to the federal tax code have
improved the ability of homeowners to profit
from the sale of a principal residence.
Based on the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997,
a married couple filing their taxes jointly
pays capital gains taxes only on that portion
of home sales profits that exceeds $500,000.
Single taxpayers, heads of households, and
married persons filing separately may retain
a profit of up to $250,000 before paying
capital gains tax. To qualify for this exemp-
tion, you must prove that you have owned
and lived in the home for two of the five
years prior to the sale. Homeowners may
use this tax-free provision every two years.
The Jobs & Growth Tax Relief
Reconciliation Act of 2003 reduced the
capital gains rates from the previous rate of
20% to 15% for higher income taxpayers
and from 10% to 5% for lower income tax-
payers, for home sold after May 6, 2003. In
2008 the 15% rate will continue for higher
income taxpayers; while the 5% lower
income rate will drop to 0% for the 2008 tax
year only. On January 1, 2009, the original
20% and 10% rates will be reinstated.
The law allows capital gain exclusions
whether you "buy up" to a more expensive
home or "buy down" to a less expensive
one.
Consult your tax advisor about the impli-
cations for your personal circumstance.
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

Winter Garden


M, HCP recognizes nursing assistants


Hands up!
Children in Camp Son Shine visited the Winter Garden Police Department as part of
Community Service Week. The children took a tour of the police station, talked with
officers and viewed a police car up close. Joining in the fun are, I-r, Kennedy Bittinger,
Kaiden Bittinger, Alex Vigeant, Payton Winslow, Kia Little and Evan Calderon. The last
day for summer camp was Aug. 17, but Camp Son Shine will be open on school holidays
during the school year. Call 321-202-1499 for details. The camp is a ministry of the First
United Methodist Church of Winter Garden.


Old church aets new start


An old church in Winter
Garden has gone through
some major changes. After
80 years, the congregation of
First Assembly of God has
changed its name to Vineland
Road Christian Fellowship.
The church is at 890 Vineland
Road.
Along with the name change,
the church also decided to
change its affiliation and
become a nondenominational
church.
Pastor Jim and Ruth Crayne
are new to the church as
well, having come from the
Western states. They served
as evangelists and pioneer
pastors in Colorado, Utah
and Arizona. Years ago, they
were missionary evangelists
-to Paraguay and visited the
church on their way to South
America. The Craynes have
served for 30 years both as
pastors and missionaries, and
they pioneered many churches
in Paraguay as well.
Church members had these
comments about the change:
"With these changes we
are endeavoring to make all
things new. We have a new-
commitment to serve the Lord,


Pastor Jim and Ruth Crayne have joined Vineland Road
Christian Fellowship in Winter Garden.


a new vision to reach out to the
community, and we even have
a new minister. Jim and Ruth
are. seasoned ministers of the


Gospel; they have a love for
people, a passion for preaching
and are gifted in music.
"We are very glad to have
them here in Winter Garden
and are looking for good
things to happen."
On Saturday, Sept. 8, at 10
a.m., Vineland Road Christian
Fellowship is planning a Kids
Festival with free food and
games. Children can register
for a drawing for prizes that
will include bicycles and a
grand prize of four admission
tickets to Universal Studios.
On Sunday, Sept. 9, at 10:30
a.m., the church will hold its
grand opening service. The
public is invited to come and
celebrate and to enjoy dinner
afterward. The activities will
conclude on Sunday with the
drawing for the prizes.

The Winter Garden Heritage
Foundation and the Garden

them and how they can live
it by growing as disciples and
reaching out to touch the lives
of other women.
Unlike other Beth Moore

rather than a biographical
study of Biblical characters.
The 11-week study
will conclude just before

Bible study and to ensure that
a student guide is available on
the first day, call the church

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 partici-
pate. Call 407-876-2112 for
more information.
The following books will
be discussed at upcoming
meetings.
On Sept. 20, Oprah's Sum-
mer Book Club selection
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eu-
genides 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 genera-
tions.
The Oct. 18 book discus-
sion will feature Glass Castle
by Jeannette Walls. This is
a memoir of resilience and
redemption and a revelatory
look into a family at once
deeply dysfunctional and
uniquely vibrant. When so-
ber, the author's brilliant and
charismatic father captured
his children's imagination,
teaching them physics, ge-
ology and how to embrace
life fearlessly. But when he
drank, he was dishonest and
destructive.
The Treasure of Montse-
gur by Sophy Burnham is the
book for the Nov. 15 meeting.
This novel about the Cathars
mixes romance with religious
history.

-Former Oakland residents have

19th annual family reunion


The Smith family from

providing all the backpacks and donating $1,000 toward the supplies. Photo by Joyce

Heavy rain and severe light-

The DP-Edgewater game
will be broadcast on ESPN
Radio AM 1080.
After waiting 90 minutes
for weather conditions to im-
prove last Friday night, the
Panthers managed to play two
quarters of football vs. Win-
ter Park. Although the game
ended with a scoreless tie, DP
nearly scored on two oppor-
tunities while the Panther de-
fense shut down Winter Park.
Ocoee and Olympia also
squeezed in two quarters of
play during last Friday night's
storms. Ocoee outscored Oak
Ridge 7-0, while Olympia
held even with Edgewater in
another scoreless tie.
The Knights scored on a
blocked punt recovered by
Arthur Legrand at the end of
the first quarter. Ocoee plays
their home opener this Fri-
day, Aug. 31, vs. Winter Park.
Coach Clint Moles said he ex-
pects a touch game featuring
two tough defenses.
Olympia's Austin Dier had
2 fumble recoveries to help


ning backs, and we must be
ready to tackle them," Head
said. "Also, they have a solid
defense that we are getting
ready for."
West Orange High will
see action for the first time
this Friday, since last week's
Kick-Off Classic vs. Evans
was completely cancelled.
Even without a football game,
WOHS still saw some excite-
ment last week.
"At around 7 p.m., we ac-
tually had lightning strike one
of our light poles and send
sparks throughout the weight
room and coach's office," said
WOHS Coach Tim Smith.
West Orange is expecting
an electric atmosphere, figura-
* tively speaking, when it hosts
University this Friday night.
"After watching game tape
on University, we believe this
should be a very good game,
and we are asking all our fans
to show up and make a lot of
noise for the Warriors," Smith
said.


The Ocoee Knights' defense swarms around an Oak Ridge running back during last Fri-
day's brief game. Ocoee outscored the Pioneers 7-0.

WGFD unveils new design .
A


The Winter Garden Fire Department has
unveiled the new design for its emblem and
patch. Fire Chief John Williamson presented
the new design at the June 28 Winter Garden
City Commission meeting and gave the mayor
and commissioners a shirt embroidered with the
new emblem.
"Today, this emblem is the new icon that
identifies the men, women and the vehicles of the
Winter Garden Fire Rescue Department," said
the chief. "What makes this logo unique is that
it not only identifies the
Fire Department, [but]
it also represents what
makes Winter Garden
such an outstanding
community."
The emblem features F
the Maltese cross, which
is the inspiration for /
the shape of most fire
department emblems
today. This symbolic .
cross originated long ago .
when a courageous band
of crusaders known as
the Knights of St. John
fought the Saracens
for possession of the
holy land. During these
battles, they encountered The Winter Garde
a new weapon unknown unveiled its new em
to European warriors. It
was a simple but horrible device of war that
wrought excruciating pain and agonizing death
upon the brave fighters for the cross.
The Saracens' new weapon was fire.
These men became known as our first
firefighters. Their heroic efforts were recognized
by follow, crusaders who awarded them a
badge of honor a special cross. Since the
Knights of St. John lived on a little island in the
Mediterranean Sea named Malta, the cross came
to be kno%% n as the Maltese cross.
'The cross' eight points
symbolize loyalty,
deo6 ion. frankness,
bravery, glory and honor,
contempt of death,
helpfulness toward the
poor and the sick, and
respect for the church.
Since the inception of
the WGFD in 1913, there
have been several different
patches worn by the city's
public safety personnel.
The first patch is one of
the earliest to be located
and dates back to the
1940s. It was provided
by former Fire Chief Jim
Briggs, who served as
chief from 1972-83. The This patch dates ba


police and fire departments shared this patch for
many years until 1973, with the only difference
being the "police" or "fire" appearing before
the word "department."
In 1973, the fire department patch took on
the shape of the Maltese cross and was worn
between 1973 and 1983. From 1983-88, the
center of the fire department patch was modified
to display the state of Florida seal and was given
a square border.
The square background was eliminated in
1988, and the fourth.
patch was worn from
1988 until recently.,
By the end of this
month, the new patch
.will replace all of the
previous versions. The
shape of the Maltese
S' cross has been modified
over the years, but the
significance has not
S changed.
The new logo project
905 was spearheaded by
Deputy: Chief Matt
McGrew, also a. new
fixture to Winter
Garden Fire Rescue.
Chief McGrew came to
9 Fire Department the city last November
blem. after 28 years of service


with Orange County Fire
Rescue Department. He gathered input from
every member of the department to bring the
concept for the patch together.
The department was then referred to local
artists and their ad agency to help in the design.
Andy Crabtree and Dan Yates, co-owners of
LyonTree Studios on Main Street in Winter
Garden, stepped up and donated their services
to create all the artwork to make the concept
come to life.
Once the artwork was created, LyonTree then

contracted to develop and create the design
layouts that were necessary to put the new logo
onto business cards, stationery, envelopes and
all the fire department units.
The artwork has been well received and has
generated many positive comments. Upon receipt
of the design and artwork at the Great American
Patch and Pin Company which transformed
the artwork into a patch representative Kevin
Hughes said this was one of the top two or three
patch designs they have ever seen.
The final stage ,of the project was to get the
new patches placed on all the uniforms. The
department thanks local resident and seamstress
Martha Boyd, who sewed more than 200 patches


The Maltese cross shape was adopted
ack to the 1940s. in 1973 and worn until 1983.


onto the various uniforms of the Winter Garden
firefighters.
Chief McGrew said he believes the community
will embrace the new emblem. He also said the
firefighters feel so connected to the community
that they elected to limit the number of traditional
fire service symbols in the emblem in order
to make the landscape of Winter Garden the
centerpiece of their new logo.
Over the years, the fire department has seen
a lot of survey information indicating that most
citizens don't think twice about who shows up at
their home in times of emergencies, just as long
as someone shows up in a timely manner.
However, Winter Garden's fire rescue


administrators don't
believe that to be the case
in this community.
S. "They believe that not
', only do our residents care
about who shows up,
[but] they truly appreciate
Winter Garden Fire Rescue
and its personnel, who are
there to help them in their
time of need," the chief
said.
S "The new logo and the
Pride behind it % ill go a

kindergarten in 1994 paid
a single payment of $5,722
for a four-year university
tuition plan. This year when
their child enrolls at a state
university, the parents would
be paying at least $11,500 for
tuition during the next four
years if they didn't have a
Florida Prepaid College Plan.
While college expenses
continue to climb, the plan
makes saving for a college
education easy, affordable
and tax-free. For as little as $1


a day, a parent can purchase
a community college tuition
plan for a newborn.
Costs depend on the plan
and the age of the child.
Not only parents, but also
grandparents, friends and
businesses, can buy a plan.
However, the child or child's
parent or guardian must be a
Florida resident.

Expanding k
The Winter
Garden Library
offers a variety of
opportunities for
learning, including a
number of computer
classes.

By Nicole Orr

The sun shone through the
Winter Garden Library branch,
illuminating the building. But
the Orange County library,
also known to its employees
as the library of windows, was
not only bright because of the
sun. Knowledge and a cheerful
atmosphere seeped in with the
sun's light, making the Winter
Garden Library at 805 E. Plant
St. sparkle in its diversity.
With aisles of books, DVDs
and CDs, a computer class-
room and 21 computers for
public access, the Winter Gar-
den Library serves as more
than just a library, providing
the community with knowl-
edge and entertainment with
the swipe of an Orange Coun-
ty Library System card.
Perhaps the biggest brag-
ging point of the library is its
computer classroom, which
houses 12 flat-screen comput-
ers and a projector to provide
patrons with a hands-on class-
room experience while learn-
ing about the latest technology
or basic computer skills.
From classes on how to
use a mouse and a keyboard
to how to send an e-mail, the
library teaches patrons a va-
.riety of lessons, as it revamps
its schedule each month to
expand the knowledge of pa-
trons.
Last month, the branch
offered 93 classes, teaching
basic computer knowledge to
457 patrons with classes on
Microsoft Word, Excel, Pub-
lisher and PowerPoint.
In addition to giving crash
courses on Microsoft pro-
grams and computer basics,
the library also teaches a vari-
ety of Internet-related courses,
including classes on creating
Web sites, wireless networks,
buying and selling on eBay
and Internet safety.
To further cater to the needs
of the community, each class
is offered at a different level,
allowing participants to con-
tinually expand their knowl-


knowledge at
edge on specific programs and
techniques.
"We offer classes for basic
and intermediate knowledge
in computers," said Juan Es-
trada, who teaches the major-
ity of the classes at the branch.,
"We prepare a lot of people for
the work force."
Because the classes are of-
fered at different levels, there
are prerequisites of basic
knowledge for every class,
Estrada said.
"We adapt the way we teach
every class to the patrons and
introduce new things so they
don't get bored," he said. "We,
as an organization, focus on
information, imagination and
inspiration."
Digital photography and
children's classes also play a
role in sparking the imagina-
.tion of the 'community; the
branch's diverse monthly
schedule offers something for
everyone, Estrada said.
The Winter Garden branch
also accommodates the His-
panic community, offering
computer classes taught in
Spanish and classes to teach
Spanish-speaking patrons
English as.a second language.
ELLIS, English Language
Learning and Instruction
System, is a computer pro-
gram used by OCLS that al-
lows users to learn English by
watching, listening, repeat-
ing, recording themselves and
playing back those record-
ings, branch manager Glenda
Houck said.
"It uses everyday conversa-
tion to get them into familiar
territory," she said. "It's great
for reinforcing the language."
ELLIS classes are orga-
nized as a lab three days a
week so patrons can work at
their own pace to improve
their proficiency of the Eng-
lish language.
With an average of 85 dif-
ferent classes per month, the
only thing better than the va-
riety of the classes the Winter
Garden Branch offers is the
price, library tech Lisa Dor-
man said.
While all classes are free to
patrons with an OCLS card,
there is a $5 "no show" fee if
a registration isn't cancelled
24 hours in advance because
space is limited. This way, she
said, there will be more com-
puters available for walk-ins.
Outside of the classroom,
patrons have access to 21


local library
computers for two hours a
day, twice a day, Dorman
said. And, with a library card,
patrons can register for free
wireless Internet.
Online resources are also
available on the library's Web
site, with more than 50 data-
bases at hand for everyone and
anything, Dorman said. The
Rosetta Stone database allows
patrons to learn any language,
while the LearnATest database
allows people to learn skills
for any test, including GED,
firefighter and nursing tests,
she said.
Online tutorials, ask-a-ques-
tion and homework help are
also available with an OCLS
card, at any time, anywhere,
Dorman said, providing pa-
trons with endless options for
expanding their knowledge.
But the Winter Garden Li-
brary branch isn't just about
learning and using resources.
Story telling and puppet
shows are offered for infants,
toddlers and children each
week, as the library bustles
with parents and children
Wednesday mornings, Houck
said.
Book clubs and gaming
nights are offered each month,
where teens can come to dis-
cuss the latest books or play
DDR, Xbox or Wii.
Events for the entire fam-
ily are also offered, like family
movie nights featuring a mov-
ie on the big screen and fresh
popcorn, and other themed
events scheduled throughout
each month.
The branch is also joining
with the Society for the Pre-
vention of Cruelty to Animals
to teach children how to be
safe around animals with the
"Can we be Friends?: Animal
Safety" program,. Saturday,
Sept. 8, at 11 a.m.
For entertainment outside of
the library, movies and televi-
sion series are also available
for check-out, along with vid-
eo games, CDs, magazines,
and, of course, books.
"We have a lot of options
for people to choose from in
OCLS," Houck said. "It's a
great thing to be able to help
people in that way."

Library branch has to offer,

Florida Virtual Academy is at students' fingertips


Hundreds of Florida
Virtual students across the
state headed back to school
recently by logging on to their
computers to access the virtual
school program provided by
K12 Inc. through the Florida *
Virtual Academy.
FLVA is a tuition-free public
school in which students work
at home with a parent or other
responsible adult to receive
instruction and guidance from
certified public school teachers
who operate remotely.
"We had an extremely
successful school year," said
Patty Beitler, FLVA Head of
School. "Not only did our
students score about state
average in most categories,
our school was also given an
A grade by the Department


of Education. FLVA offers a
flexible curriculum that helps
students to really excel."
The K12-developed
curriculum covers traditional
subjects of math, language
arts/English, science, history,
art and music.
During the couple of weeks
before school started, FLVA
students received boxes full of
traditional education materials
shipped to their home. Items
included books, workbooks,
classical stories, science
supplies, maps, art books,
instruments, music CDs and
more.
Students, parents and
teachers access daily lessons,
progress and planning tools
and assessments through the
online school. Students also


receive a computer and printer
on loan from the school.
FLVA is a tuition-free
online public school serving
'students in grades K-8. The
academy gives the students
the curriculum, tools and
support needed to receive a
high-quality, well-rounded
education in their home, on
the road or wherever learning
needs to happen.
All students are assigned
to a state-certified teacher
and receive an individualized
learning program designed to
meet their personal education
needs.
Contact Patty Beitler at
904-721-0035 or plbeitler@
kl2.com if you are interested
in talking with a FLVA parent
and teacher in your local area.
