God looked around his Garden and found an empty place,
He then looked down upon his earth and saw your loving face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
His Garden plust be beautiful, he always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering, e knew you wereknew y in pain,
And knew that you would never get well on earth again.
He saw your path was difficult, he closed your tired eyes,
He whispered to you "Peace be Thine" and gave you wings to fly.
When we saw you sleeping so calm and free of pain,
We would not wish you back to earth to suffer once again.
You've left us precious memories, your love will be our guide,
You live on through your children, you're always by our side.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you. on the day God called youo home.

Opinion


Editor,
The Friends of Lake Apopka have agreed to
join the Putnam County Environmental Council
in their efforts to restore the entire watershed
of the Ocklawaha River. Lake Apopka forms
the headwaters of this watershed that also in-
cludes the Harris Chain of lakes as the river flows
northward, eventually merging with the St. Johns
River.
FOLA has focused attention on Lake Apo-
pka and will continue to do so, but the Board
of Directors feels it is important to join efforts
to face problems downstream as well. Current
battles in Lake Apopka include guarding against
further pollution in the lake from surrounding
development, halting efforts to withdraw waters
for irrigation and fighting against approvals for
permits to sell bottled water for the Apopka drain-
age basin.
Current data shows considerable improvements
in decreased phosphorus levels, and recent reports
indicate fishing has improved dramatically.
One of the biggest battles downstream includes
removal of the Rodman Dam, a relic of a previ-
ous ill-advised attempt to build a Cross-Florida

Reader expects city to b
L Editor,
I and others recently toured the Garden The-
n, atre in downtown Winter Garden, and until
you see it in person, it's difficult to grasp what
a wonderful asset this is going to be. When
we viewed the auditorium, we were in deja vu
land. immediately a flashback occurred. It
was as if the old movie theater were still here.
Only now, every facet is going to be state-of-
the-art and in pristine condition. The stage
- framing is just like the original, and the atmo-
spheric Spanish features, like the balconies
and railings, are very close. The ceiling with
the twinkling stars is virtually completed, and.
% the scaffolding has been removed. For those
I of us who grew up here, it was impossible to.
control the tears of joy.
. We sensed an. overwhelming feeling of awe
as we toured the backstage addition, with three
floors of rehearsal space, dressing rooms and
assembly space. Why, even the stage-loading
door at the rear of the building can be used as
a stage for outdoor performances. Seemingly,
every detail has been thought of, and, as a re-
sult of endless meetings and debating of ideas,


Barge Canal, which fortunately, was halted by
President Nixon. The Rodman Dam had been
completed before the project was stopped, and
vigorous political fights through the years have
blocked attempts to remove the structure, The
damaging results of the dam include destruction
of many acres of floodplain forests and disruption
of flow that caused increased nutrient levels in
the river below the dam.
Current efforts by environmental groups call
for a permanent draw down of the Rodman pool,
which would allow for flushing of the river and
restoration of floodplain forests to restore many
acres of habitat. Other efforts call for an imme-
diate science-based establishment of Minimum
Flows and Levels for the entire length of the Ock-
lawaha. The same is needed for Lake Apopka.
The Putnam County Environmental Council is
planning a Rally for the Rivers on Feb. 15-17,
2008, in Palatka, where all these issues will be
featured, along with educational and entertaining
events. For more information, you can check our
web site at fola.org.

become 'greatly admired'
something truly remarkable is taking shape.
The Garden Building, next door, is going to
be a "green" structure, with a rooftop garden
and greenhouse. It will become an attraction
in itself. There is a grand staircase leading to
it, and I can just envision how attractive it will
be once the carpeting and decorative details
are there.
Winter Garden is going to become a magnet
for visitors who are interested in arts facili-
ties. The city should become greatly admired
for its accomplishments and improvements.
I'm hoping some widespread publicity is gen-
erated as we open this magnificent theatre in
January and celebrate the joy of the arts.
My congratulations go out to all of those
citizens whose minds have contributed their
many talents to bring this all together. My
thanks go to everyone who has contributed
with finances and time. We are soon going to
have a wonderful building with soul. The soul
comes from the spirit of the people who have
accomplished this awesome feat!

Building green is goal in Oakland Park


Castle & Cooke
calls it 'a walkable
community' and says
it is 'planned around
a connected network
of streets and trails.'

By Amy Quesinberry

There are strict rules to fol-
low when building a home ac-
cording to "green" standards.
Creating an entire green com-
munity is even trickier.
But the developers of Oak-
land Park est. 1844, a new com-
munity of traditional homes be-
ing built on the southern shore
of Lake Apopka, aim to do just
that.
Castle & Cooke launched
the 258-acre Oakland Park in
the spring and is now build-
ing the first of its 64 homes in
Phase 1/A. The community -
which, when completed,, will
have 750 residential units is
also unique in that it lies in two
municipalities: Winter Garden
and Oakland.
It was announced by the
Florida Green Building Coali-
tion (FGBC) in April that Oak-
land Park is officially a "green
development," the first in Cen-
tral Florida to earn the designa-
tion. Six other communities in
Florida have received the des-
ignation since the FGBC was
founded in 2000.
Castle & Cooke further an-
nounced that each home built
in the community will be re-
quired to be certified as green
according to FGBC standards.
Why build green?
Homes built to green stan-
dards "reduce consumption of
electricity and water, preserv-
ing precious resources," ac-
cording to Castle & Cooke. "A
home that has been certified as
green has less impact on the
environment than a home built
without green standards."
The 5,500-square-foot sales
center on Oakland Avenue
- the first home completed
in Oakland Park has been
certified as well and has many
environmentally friendly fea-
tures built into the design. It
includes:
high-performance windows
- tall, double-paned windows
filled with argon gas between
the panes. The glass is also
coated with a low-emission
coating that lets in the light but
not the heat.
Icynene foam insulation
- soft-foam and air-barrier in-
sulation system that is sprayed
directly onto the inside of the
metal roof sheathing. Applied
as a liquid, Icynene expands to


100 times its volume in seconds
to fill cracks and crevices while
remaining flexible to maintain
the integrity of the building en-
velope.
high-efficiency "can lights"
- 26-watt, plug-in fluorescent
bulbs that can be controlled by
a dimmer switch, unlike other
fluorescent lighting fixtures.
high-efficiency air-condi-
tioning units the building's
energy-saving features made it
possible to reduce the size of
the cooling units by half, com-
pared to what ordinarily would
be required for a building that
size.
gas-fired tankless water
heater this appliance saves
money by not storing and re-
heating water on a continual
basis. Instead, it generates hot
water instantly on an as-needed
basis.
pollutant-free indoor air
quality interior paints are
rated as "low-VOC" paints,
which refers to the amount of
volatile organic compounds in
the paint.
drought-tolerant landscap-
ing uses native Florida
plants and a drip-irrigation sys-
tem.
Other green features that
can be used in Oakland Park's
homes are a built-in pest con-
trol system, carpeting, cabinets
and Energy Star-rated fixtures
and appliances.
To be certified as a green
home, its builder must docu-
ment each home's features
using a checklist that awards
points for environmentally
friendly features. A minimum
of 200 points is required.
Several options will be avail-
able to enable each home to at-
tain the green standard..
"These features and others
will be offered to home buyers
as part of Oakland Park's com-
mitment to green home build-
ing," said Bob Hennen, direc-
tor of sales and marketing for
Castle & Cooke Florida. "One
of the strengths of the green
building movement in Florida
is that there are a number of dif-
ferent approaches that a buyer
can take. You are not forced to
include all of those features, but
you can take some of them and
combine them with other ap-
proaches to be officially desig-
nated as a 'green house.' There
is a fair amount of flexibility in
achieving that standard."
John Rinehart, vice president
of Castle & Cooke Florida, said
that achieving the green devel-
opment designation "requires
more than a documented com-
mitment to environmental pro-
tection."
He said: "It's a mind-set.


John Rinehart (right), vice president of Castle & Cooke Florida, looks'at the progress of
Mustakas, director of home building for Castle & Cooke Florida.


We have tried to build green
principles and green thinking
into Oakland Park's DNA. It's
not only a commitment on our
part, but, ultimately, it's going
to be a commitment on the part
of our residents who will make
their homes here."
There are four builders in
Oakland Park: Castle & Cooke
Homes and custom home build-
ers Bradford Building Corp.,
Brentwood Custom Homes and
Goerhing & Morgan.
Officials at Oakland Park say
that while it might cost more
initially to build a green home,
homeowners tend to view it as
an investment that will eventu-
ally pay off monetarily and in
terms of impact on the environ-
ment.
In addition to. going green
in its homes, Oakland Park is
also dedicated to creating 14
small parks and civic spaces to
further the natural aspect of the
neighborhood.
Construction has begun on
several single-family homes in
the first phase, which is closest
to the south shore of Lake Apo-
pka. Castle & Cooke has com-
mitted to restoring one-third
of a mile of the lakefront and

creating a community park that
will bring residents to the lake.
Linking the different neigh-
borhoods throughout Oakland
Park creating an array of
pathways, pedestrian walks
and trails is another way of
thinking green.


The idea behind planning for
naturalistic, open spaces nes-
tled among homes is to draw
residents outside and encour-
age social interaction.
The West Orange Trail goes
through the heart of Oakland
Park and will be "fronted by


varying condition's of streets,
parks, cottages and standard
homes," according to Castle &
Cooke. The' trail's placement
will further the connectivity of
the community and provide a
natural link between Oakland
and Winter Garden.

7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 23,
at 3 and 7:30 p.m. at St. Paul's
Presbyterian Church, 1450 Citrus
Oaks Ave., Ocoee.
This show was the choreo-
graphic vision of director Kath-
ryn Austin more than 14 years
ago. It began with a small and
very young cast and a few pieces
of lyrical choreography to classic
and contemporary Christmas mu-
sic performed in the Fellowship
Hall at the First United Methodist
Church of Winter Garden. Now,
it is a one-hour performing arts
production that strives to offer
the community a peaceful and
reverent hour to reflect on the
true meaning of the Christmas
season. -
As young dancers work their
way through the casting- from
Candle Bearers at age 4 or 5 to
Blessed Angels and Guardian
Angels -to Ensemble members
and Senior Company members,
each one looks forward to the
year that she might be cast in the
role of Mary.
This year, Austin's daugh-
ter, Caitlin Snelson, will dance
the key role and be featured in
"Mary's Song" and. "Oh, Holy
Night." Snelson joins the list
of 18 former Marys: Kathryn
Austin, Jessica Ingman, Valerie


'In His Name'
McGowin, Nadine Turner Phel-
an, Jamie Grant Johnson, Katie
Grant Shores, Lerin Dollar, Dina
Asma, Katie Spence, Kathryn
Bravar Brugal, Daniela Fiore,
Kellie Watson, Alaina Lewallen,
Sarah Cappleman, Lee Sheet,
Sadie Stafford, Sarah White and
Brittni Dell.
Caitlin Snelson has been danc-
ing for most of her 17 years, hav-
ing taken many of her first steps
on .the studio floor. She is presi-
dent of the CDPA Performing
Ensemble, of which she has been
an performing member for the
past eight years. She is an accom-
plished Scottish Highland dancer
and has traveled extensively to
compete and study in the United
States, Canada and Scotland.
Caitlin is in the National Honor
Society at West Orange High
School and has balanced her aca-
demics, flute performance, danc-
ing, student teaching at the studio
and work schedule while prepar-
ing for this performance.
The show will also feature the
voices of soprano Kathryn Bra-
var Brugal and tenor Michael
Brugal. Kathryn Keating and
Laura Mobley, both freshmen at
West Orange, will alternate the
role of Mary's Spirit.
Admission is $12 for adults,
$5 for students 5-18 and free
for those under 5. Tickets are
available at the door or in ad-
vance at Geared to Dance, 107
W. Plant St., Winter Garden. For

ROTARY CLUB








OF OCOEE


Marbais named a Fellow
Steve Marbais (center), an Ocoee Rotarian and the owner of Marbais Enterprises,

shared purpose with the objectives and missions of The Rotary Foundation to build a
world of understanding and peace. As a recipient, Marbais received the three emblems

that he was named a PHF 'in appreciation of tangible and significant assistance given

Rogers, speaker and past district governor.


Walt Scott of Ocoee authors
book on mystery of Mormonism


Walt Scott of Ocoee was
concerned to hear all the mis-
information about Republican
presidential candidate Mitt
Romney's religion, so he de-
cided to do something about
it. He wrote and published The
Mystery and Controversy Sur-
rounding Mormonism.
"This is not a book about
politics or Gov. Romney's po-
litical aspirations. It does use
the attention focused on the
church as an opportunity to tell
our story," Scott said.
A fifth-generation Mormon,
he has held many leadership
and teaching assignments in
the church, and the book re-
flects his personal testimony
and knowledge.
The 172-page book ad-
dresses basic doctrines of the
Church of Jesus Christ of Lat-
ter-day Saints. It is the fourth
largest religion in the United
States, according to the Nation-
al Council on Churches 2007
Yearbook. However, surveys
show that its basic doctrines
are not always well understood
by the public.
"I hope for understanding,
not necessarily agreement,"
Scott said.
And he added: "The book is
written in a fair and objective
manner, presenting informa-
tion candidly, while showing
sincere respect for the beliefs
and practices of other religions
and churches. It is written for
two levels of interest. The first
several chapters avoid unnec-
essary detail, although they


WALT SCOTT
are comprehensive. The rest
of the book is a more detailed
examination of the faith, with
more supporting facts and ref-
erences. It deals with common-
alities, as well as differences,
compared to other Christian
churches and world religions
and boldly addresses many of
the more difficult questions be-
ing raised."
He has already received an
e-mail time stamped at 2:30
a.m. by a reader who could not
put the book down, He said he
hopes many others will find the
book to be fascinating.
The book may be ordered at
www.mysteryofmormonism.
com. Free information can be
found at www.lds.org or www.
mormon.org. Basic beliefs are
explained and users can ask
questions during a live chat.

Golf instructor speaks to Rotary Club of Windermere


Rafael Floriani, director
of instruction at the Bill Ma-
donna Golf Academy, was the
featured speaker at the Dec. 4
meeting of the Rotary Club of
Windermere.
"Expect to Get Better" was
the title of Floriani's talk. He
described and demonstrated
the fundamentals and me-
chanics of a successful golf
swing. Using world class pro-
fessional golfers Tiger Woods
and Ernie Els as examples, he
showed the excellent swing
sequence of both players as
compared to that of a some-


what lesser skilled player.
Floriani analyzed swing er-
rors made by many players
with high handicaps, fielded
questions from several club
members and defined the
most flagrant flaws instruc-
tors find in students at the
Golf Academy. He further de-
fined the four absolutes of the
golf swing as turn, shift, turn,
turn.
The boys and girls from
Edgewood Children's Ranch,
regular guests at the club's
first meeting of the month,
were present for the talk. Ro-


tary spokesman Bill Criswell
speculated that one of them
might be a future Tiger Woods
or Ernie Els.
The Bill Madonna Qolf
Academy is located at the Mar-
riott Resort and Convention
Center in Orlando. Its mission
is to help high handicap golf-
ers become better players and
low handicap golfers to fine-
tune their games.
The Rotary Club meets
Tuesday mornings at Town
Hall. For more informa-
tion, call Coert Voorhees at
407-876-6897.


Central Florida Women's League distributes grants
The Central Florida Women's League recently distributed grants to several charitable
organizations totaling $72,000. A Gift of Teaching received $10,000 to purchase socks
and personal wear for school-aged children. CFWL members Elise Saunders and Sue
Goodwin stopped by the charity to look at the new display with Jane Thompson, president
of A Gift of Teaching, and Valeria Mardle, director of development.


Pictured (1-r) in front of the Town Hall Christmas tree are (in back) Rotary President John
Crippen, Edgewood Ranch representative Lynn Hotalen, Edgewood students Rose,
Dana and (in front) Jenifer, Jon, Brandon, Jan, Ziggy and guest speaker Rafael Floriani.


The Central Florida Women's League also presented a check fpr $20,000 to Mustard Seed,
along with a donation of needed kitchen items. Those attending the site visit were (1-r)
members JoAnne Quarles and Sue Goodwin with Carol Kane, president of Mustard Seed,

Could you be a
Christmas Angel?


I know a young couple who .
is expecting a baby boy in
February. They are both working but are still hav-
ing difficult times making all ends meet. You and I
can bless them this Christmas by putting a nursery
together for them. They need everything! Please
call me if you have clothes, baby furniture, and just
anything that could welcome this little boy and to
bless these parents for a job well done.

Windermere
director of Growth Manage-
ment for Orange County, on
Nov. 14. The town staff as-
sumed that the documents
would be delivered to the
Board of County Commis-
sioners, as required by Florida
statutes.
Two days later, Town Man-
ager Cecilia Bernier asked
Harrison in an e-mail to let the
town know if the town staff
needed to deliver additional
copies or redeliver them to
another office.
Harrison did not respond to
Bernier until the close of busi-
ness Dec. 7, telling her that
the documents needed to be
refiled directly with the Board
of. County Commissioners.
Bernier replied to Harrison
with a terse letter on Dec.
10 stating that the town was
proceeding with the public
hearings as planned on Dec.
11 and Jan. 8. She said Win-
dermere had advertised and
scheduled the meetings be-
cause there had been no objec-
tions or correspondence from
the county in the intervening,
three weeks.
"Too much time has passed,
too much has happened, and
too many people are expect-
ing a hearing to occur and the
process to go forward," Berni-
er wrote to Harrison.
At last week's hearing,
Lanosa hand-delivered anoth-
er letter from Harrison advis-


(Continued from IA)


ing the town that "county staff
has not received timely notice
of the town's annexation re-
ports, pursuant to law section
171.042, Florida Statutes, due
to the improper delivery of
the annexation reports to my
office.
"As a result, Orange Coun-
ty staff has not had adequate
time to review the annexation
reports and to prepare for the
public hearing which will be
held tonight."
The council was clearly up-
set by the county's response to
the annexation reports.
"It's absurd that the Annex-
ation of Isleworth Report can
be mislocated.... what word
shall we use?" asked Council
Member Bob Sprick.
The mayor read from the
letters exchanged between the
town and the county and then
said, "I find it almost incredu-
lous that you can come here
to me tonight and say we just
haven't had time" when these
documents indicate you had
the reports.
In her testimony, Lanosa
also asked the council to hold
a dual referendum on the an-
nexation to get approval from
Windermere voters, as well as
those in the annexed areas.
Following the meeting,
Sprick told The West Orange
Times he was extremely dis-
appointed to learn at the Dec.
11 meeting that the county had

apparently lost the proposed
Isleworth Annexation Report.
"The town of Windermere
had submitted the report to
the Orange County Director
of Growth Management Jim
Harrison on Nov. 14 with his
secretary signing for the re-
port," said Sprick.
"How the county apparently
misplaced or temporarily lost
the report is disheartening and
disappointing."
The town had scheduled a
second set of public hearings
on the two areas proposed for
annexation on Jan. 8.
The town manager told the
Times on Monday the Town
Council now has scheduled an
additional public hearing on
the annexation of both areas
for Jan. 3. Both meetings are
at 7 p.m. in Town Hall.
While the town does not be-
lieve this is required, Bernier
said the staff has complied


with the county's request. The
reports have now been filed
with Martha Haynie, the clerk
of the Board of County Com-
missioners.
Several Windermere resi-
dents spoke in opposition of
the Isleworth annexation dur-
ing the hearing.
Cecil Robinson, a 30-year
town resident, said: "I don't
think Isleworth belongs in
Windermere. I think the only
reason the council is consider-
ing this is financial."
Mark Keller, a former town
council member, advised the
elected officials the services
required after the annexation
would exceed expectations.
He told the council: "We
need to live within our budget.
Stop this annexation. Stop try-
ing to tell us what's in our best
interest."
Isleworth resident Joseph
Whitaker said he and his wife


"vehemently oppose" the an-
nexation.
"We believe you're search-
ing for tax dollars without
representation," he said.
Whitaker said he believes
the county provides better ser-
vices.
Isleworth resident Dean
Fresonke, also a former Wind-
ermere town council member,
spoke in favor of the annexa-
tion.
"The only way to protect
the precious older parts of
the town is to control the sur-
roundings," said Fresonke.
"The annexation process can
create a revenue stream. If
you don't have the resources,
you won't be able to protect
what is so precious."
During the public hearing
for Butler Bay Unit 1, attorney
Lanosa expressed the county's
objection to the annexation
for the same reasons as in the

In addition, town residents
and some from Butler Bay ex-
pressed similar comments for
and against the annexation.
On another matter and fol-
lowing a public hearing and
second reading, the council
unanimously adopted an or-
dinance prohibiting parking
boats and watercraft on town
property. This law does not
prohibit mooring boats and
watercraft in the lakes. below
the high water line unless it
interferes with town swim-
ming areas. This law gives the
town the ability to remove and

"SHORT SALES"
BECOMING MORE
FREQUENT
The term 'short sale" is coming up
more frequently these days. What
exactly does it mean? A short sale
is when the lender agrees to permit
a buyer, often an investor, to acquire
the home from the owner for a price
that is less than the amount cur-
rently owed on the mortgage. This
happens in the time period immedi-
ately before the property goes to
public auction.
Such a sale saves the lender the
cost and delay of proceeding, to a
foreclosure auction, and provides
the buyer with a home purchase
opportunity for a low price.. In addi-
tion, he or she will not be required to
pay off the full existing loan or make
up back payments. In most cases,
the lender will not make a deal with
a buyer unless the, seller has fallen
seriously behind in making timely
mortgage payments. When that
point is eventually reached however,
it can offer an exceptional buying
opportunity for either an investor'or
a family looking for a bargain home,
for their new residence.
If you would like to talk further
,about buying or selling real estate,
please contact Libby Tomyn CRS at
Century 21 Professional Group. Call

Lady Warrior soccer rolls to 10-1-1 record


It's been 10 years since the
West Orange High varsity girls
soccer team has won 10 games
in a season. The Lady Warriors
recently picked up their 10th win
of the current season, improving
to 10-1-1.
The team's resurgence is be-
ing led by Peter Abatiello, who
came out of retirement to coach
the Lady Warriors. Abatiello
coached the team from 1992-98
with a 75-40-19 record. Abatiello

of 1998), who has also been
coaching the junior varsity girls
team to a 7-1-1 record, and Karen


Venable (Class of 1999), a for-
mer all-state player for the Lady
Warriors.
"Karen has been a gift from
heaven," Abatiello said, adding
that her offensive knowledge
has complemented his defen-
sive coaching expertise. "We are
a complete, well-rounded team
this year."
West Orange is led in scoring
by Tara Fadenracht (21 goals),
followed by Hemandez Hough-
ton (11), Brooke Wilds (13) and
Kiera Johnson (9). Playmakers
Wilds and Guila Guini have set
the table this season with a com-
bined 32 assists.


"These girls give us an offen-
sive punch considered the best in
the Metro Conference," Abatiello
said.
On defense, West Orange has
recorded 6 shutouts with strong
play by Lauren Shea, Danni Ax-
tel, Ashley Raulenson, Hanna
Hughes and Patricia Chastang.
Goalkeeper Kara Ettore has av-
eraged only 1 goal allowed per
game.
The Lady Warriors Wvill play
a must-win game this Thursday,
Dec. 20, at 7:30 p.m. against
Edgewater. This game, Abatiello
said, will decide the Metro and
district championships.

NTC X-treme Fastpitch tryouts in Clermont set for January


The Titan varsity boys soccer
team (7-1-3) snatched a dramatic
victory on the road and played to
a tie at home vs. an undefeated
foe in competition last week.
Olympia traveled to defending
state semi-finalist Lyman (6-5-1)
and got off to a strong start by
scoring in the second minute.
Andrew Duncanson found Diogo
Ferreira on a quick throw-in for
the opening goal. The Titans sus-
tained consistent pressure from
Lyman, but the defensive play
of Brad Smith, Tyson Pryor-and
Andrew Tungate, and the hands
of goalie Jerry Hatsady, kept the
Greyhounds at bay.
In the second half, Olympia
raised its game and attacked Ly-
man repeatedly, with Aron Hotal-
en and Vinny Torres controlling


the midfield. Duncanson took a
long pass from Ferreira and raced
down the sideline, beating his de-
fender aind.knocking in a goal in
the top-right comer of the net.
With three minutes remaining,
Lyman cut the lead in half with
a goal from 12 yards out. Then,.
with only 90 seconds left on the
clock, Lyman ripped another goal
from 25 yards out to tie the score.
It seemed the game would end in
a tie, but with less than 20 seconds
left, Olympia's Ferreiralaunched
a 35-yard kick that sailed over the
Lyman goalie's head and bounced
in the comer of the net for a stun-
ning, 3-2 victory.
An undefeated Timber Creek
team visited Olympia High last
Friday for a rematch of last year's
district championship game.


The Titans attacked often in the
first 20 minutes, but the Wolves
battled back. After strong defen-
sive efforts by both teams, the
first half ended in a scoreless tie.
Tungate, Pryor, James Gossman,
Hotalen and Hatsady stood out
for Olympia.
Twelve minutes into the sec-
ond half, Olympia took a 1-0 lead
on a header by Scott McGarigal
from the middle of a crowd off a
long throw-in by Pryor. The Titan
defense held strong throughout
the half, but the Wolves made a
strong push in the final 25 sec-
onds, earning a direct free kick
on an Olympia foul. With only 4
seconds remaining, Timber Creek
nailed its free kick, sailing just
beyond Hatsady's outstretched
fingers for the 1-1 tie.


The NTC X-treme

Reading Reindeer


By Kathy Aber


Reading Reindeer can't say
thank you enough! Each year,
book response gets stronger.
There are a few more dona-
tions the staff knows are com-
ing in later this week, but as of
Monday evening, this year's
book total stands at 4,827
books an overwhelming
response to the goal of 2,000.
This tally even surpasses last
year's milestone of 4,272
books.
The West Orange Times
put more emphasis this year
on cash donations to support
the ongoing effort to give a
new book to each baby bom
at Health Center throughout
the year. The goal was set at
$6,000 in order to cover the
cost of purchasing books for
approximately 1,300 infants.
t" The donations increased from
$1,505 in 2006 to $2,925 this
year. With the copies of Dr.
Seuss's ABCs on hand, the
program will continue until
2009.
We are grateful to all the
community support. Many
new groups and individuals
joined the campaign this year,
and many more have been
faithful followers of Reading
Reindeer for each of its 10
years.
Children in the primary
ea classes at several congrega-
tions of the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints
donated more than 500 books
this year.

for Hungerford Prep panel
Forty people representing the diversity of Orange County are needed to form a citizens
panel that will help shape the future of Hungerford Prep in Eatonville, preserve the
community's history and create a vision for its future.
Because of low enrollment and low interest in the school's magnet programs, the school
board will phase out the current programs and launch a revitalized school in 2010.
Once confirmed to the panel, participants must attend two community forums on Jan.
17 and Feb. 7, both from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
To submit a name for consideration, call the foundation at 407-317-3261 or e-mail to

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


"But Iwant yoy to know, brethren, Al h, lit'
things which iitippencJto ne hi'' ,ctah/llV
turned out fobr the furtherance oj tihe guspe!, so
that it has become evident to rhe whole palace .
guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in
i -rif'/. "
Philippians 1:12,13

First of all, God wants us to know that all
things work together for His good. God is able
to take our present situation and mold it toward
the furtherance of the Gospel. Even what may
look like a bad situation can become an oppor-
tunity to be a witness of Jesus Christ.
Who knows what God will do? 'If we will
remain true to thefaith, and refuse to compromise
ur helier. (God ill uie .' ii, a nii'jht. ~a\ If'
we. on a. daili basis. continuuc t,,o jlk the talk of'
i,tor ulilth in ( hrist. others % ill begin Io blihe e
the (Go.pel of lelu, C'ihris


Our faith in Jesus Christ should be evident to
everyone around us. People should see, hear, and
experience a difference when they are near us.
-We should be living examples of God's righ-
teousness. People should know that we are
Christians' and we shouldn't hide the truth of our
faith in Christ.
It's time for us to stand up and be bold in our
faith, regardless of situations or people. It was
evident to the prison guards that Apostle Paul
was a Christian. He spoke with boldness of his
Lord and Saviop Jesus Christ!
\Ve'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 Jet likt: 'e ui.eJ t ', c e a ic not hiained
to our old lii'eNt Ic alea nItrt.!

Ocoee High teacher James Fritz (left) receives the first hand-
off of the 'Sword in the Stone' from Matt Fitzpatrick.


New tradition
Ocoee High teacher James
Fritz shared an idea he had
seen at another school called
"You Rock." The premise
was simple: It was a rock that
was passed along from staff
member to staff member when
that person did something
special for them.
The person would hold the
rock for a week or so and then
pass it on to someone who
had done something special
for them. A picture was taken
at the transfer of the rock and
put on the Web page. The
"giving" teacher would send out
an e-mail to the entire staff to
explain why the rock had been
passed on.
OHS put the idea in place
with a small change. It is now
called the "Sword in the Stone,"
and a poem was written to
accompany the sword when it
is passed on.

He is a fifth-grade teacher
and has been a member of

UCF offers 200
scholarships
The University
of Central Florida
is awarding 200
first-generation
undergraduates
$400,000 in
scholarships this year
to ease student debt
and offer better access
to higher-education
opportunities. UCF
was awarded half of
the scholarship funding
through TG's Public
Benefit Grant Program.
,As part of its
"BorrowLess Grant"
program, UCF will
offer the $2,000
annual scholarships
to first-generation
undergraduate students
who are financially
needy, but who do not
qualify for the Federal
Pell Grant or the Florida
Assistant Grant.
"Many students are
faced with having to pay
their college costs solely
with loans because they
do not qualify for grant
programs," saidThomas
Huddleston vice
president for marketing,
communication and
admissions. "TG's
Public Benefit Grant
Program offered us
the opportunity to
assist some of these
student from low-to-
moderate families from
accumulating such a
burden of debt."
