Company thinks green

with gift to Tildenville


By Amy Quesinberry

The Tildenville Elementary
students have received a green
gift both in color and in terms
of impact on the environment.
It took more than 11,500 re-
cycled milk jugs to create the
two picnic tables that Waste
Management donated to the
Winter Garden school. Plastic
grocery bags were mixed in to
give them their green color.
More than 100 kindergart-
ners participated in the recent
program in which officials from
Waste Management Inc. of Flor-
ida and Waste Management Re-
cycle America unveiled two ad-
ditions to the school's park area.
The milk jugs produced the 640
pounds of plastic "lumber" used
to create the tables and attached


benches.
The kindergarten students
carried out the green theme that
afternoon, making classroom
planters out of additional milk
jugs for wildflower seeds.
"Waste Management is com-
mitted to environmental stew-
ardship, which is best promoted
through the three R's of reduce,
reuse, recycle," said Jim Swan,
public sector services manager
of Waste Management Inc. of
Florida. "These recycled-plastic
picnic tables are a great illustra-
tion of that concept.
"It's never too early to teach
our children about the impor-
tance of protecting and preserv-
ing our natural resources," Swan
said, "and these tables will be at
Tildenville Elementary for de-
cades as aeminder."

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-bilingual drivers, are
also in demand.
The volunteer driving
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. For information
on volunteering, call
407-843-8680, Ext. 2517,

Patients with
advanced melanoma
offered new option
Skin cancer specialists at
M.D. Anderson Cancer Center
Orlando are recruiting patients
into a large Phase 3 study
to evaluate the safety and
effectiveness of Allovectin-7,
an investigational product for
advanced melanoma.
If Allovectin-7 is found to
be safe and effective in clinical
trials, it may offer patients
a new option for fighting
advanced melanoma. Safety
and efficacy data from a Phase
2 clinical trial for the drug
were presented at the 2006
American Society of Clinical
Oncology meeting.
The ongoing Phase 3 study is
designed to determine whether
more patents respond favorably
to Allovectin-7 alone than to
current standard chemotherapy
alone.

someone you know qualify

commercial development," he
said, development that would
increase the city's tax base so
that such fees would not be
necessary.
This discussion included a
second reading and public hearing
on approving the ordinance that
would give the city the power
to impose a fire-service fee, and
this was approved 5-0.
Croteau explained this vote
only adopted the ordinance but
did not actually impose any
fees. That issue would come
back before thq commission in
the spring.
The top fee the city could
choose, the 100 percent fee,
would raise more than $3
million. At 50 percent, or $71 per
dwelling unit, a little more than
$1.5 million would be raised.
Commercial and industrial
facilities would be assessed on
a square-foot basis, 36 cents per
square foot at the 100 percent
rate and 18 cents per square foot
at the 50 percent rate.

relationship with Ocoee Fire
and Rescue.
Plaugher explained that the
county does not currently seek
reimbursement for responding
to calls within the Windermere
town limits under its automatic
agreement.
This year, the county respond-
ed to 55 of Windermere's 186
calls for service 34 percent.
But Plaugher said he would
object to responding to calls in
Isleworth without a change to
the current agreement.
County AdministratorAjit La-
Ichandani told the commission,
"I would not recommend to you
that Orange County Fire Rescue
modify the automatic aid agree-
ment and add Isleworth to it.
"If [Windermere] annexes,
they need to get in the fire busi-
ness."
Commissioner Jacobs rec-
ommended the county review
its reimbursement policies and
mutual-aid, agreements.
"If we don't like the terms of
the agreement, shame on us,"
said Jacobs.
She said the county was un-
fairly criticizing Windermere.
"We need to have a consistent
policy and charge for service
when we provide service."
Chief Plaugher said to date
he had beeh satisfied with the
current agreements but that a
change of $2 million in revenue
was a significant change to the
playing field.
"If we don't get paid we
shouldn't go," said Plaugher.

mutual aid agreement between
Ocoee and Orange County with
90 days notice.
The Ocoee City Commission
unanimously approved a resolu-
tion at its meeting last Tuesday
supporting Windermere's pro-
posed annexation of Isleworth.
Windermere Town Manager
Cecilia Bernier told The West
Orange Times Friday, "We are
so disappointed with all of the
misinformation county staff
gave to the Board of County
Commissioners that we intend
to respond to it."
Windermere's proposed an-
nexation of Isleworth is a multi-
step process because more than
70 percent of the 1,100 acres in
the Isleworth community are
not owned by registered voters.
This land, which includes the
Isleworth golf course, is owned
by individuals, corporations or
other legal entities, which are
not registered to vote.
Windermere must obtain con-
sent of more than 50 percent of
this ownership in order to pro-
ceed with a referendum among
registered voters.
County Attorney Joel Prinsell
told the BCC Tuesday the town
has not responded to county in-
quiries to explain if this consent
has been obtained.
"It's hard to believe a govern-
ment would proceed without
that," said Crotty.
Prinsell said his office asked
for the information Dec. 7 and
had not had a response from the
town as of Dec. 18.

"Have you just tried to call
and ask that question?" inquired
District 1 Commissioner Teresa
Jacobs, who represents Wind-
ermere.
In response to Jacob's ques-
tion, County Attorney Tom
Drage said the situation has be-
come adversarial. He said his
staff had been instructed that
all correspondence must go
through the Windermere town
attorney.
If consent for the annexation
is obtained from more than 50
percent of the land ownership
that is not registered to vote,
then the town must also obtain
approval of the annexation from
the voters owning property in
Isleworth through a referendum.
This process will take place with
ballots mailed between Feb. 20
and March 1 with a return dead-
line of 7 p.m. March 11.
If voters approve the annexa-
tion;, it Would become effective
10 days after the referendum.
. Windermere must hold at
least two public hearings on the
annexation ordinance prior to
the referendum.
Because of a previous dis-
agreement between the town
and the county over the proper
filing of the Isleworth annexa-
tion report, Windermere has
scheduled an additional public
hearing.
The first public hearing was
held Dec. 11, a second hearing
will be held Jan. 3, and the final
hearing and vote will take place
Jan. 8. Both meetings begin at 7
p.m. at Windermere Town Hall.

Letters to the editor


From our archives

Old Times


Editor,
"This is such a nice little city; we just love
it here!"
If I had a dollar for every time I heard that
from people, I probably wouldn't have as much
of a struggle to pay rent each month and
maybe Downtown Brown's would still be open
for dinner and ice cream at night too!
Being a new merchant in downtown Winter
Garden for the past six months has been an
interesting venture to say the least especially
these past two months and right now as we are
full swing into the "busiest time of the year!"
Well, I don't think I'd call it exactly that;
nor would most of my fellow merchants down
here, either.
You see, it's been a bit on the thin side for
customers lately. Of course, we're all optimistic
and hopeful for when the theater and other retail
shops and restaurant open and we love Win-
ter Garden as much or more than you say you
do, but we can't help but wonder "where has
everyone gone lately"? We have great turnouts
for all of our events, and things look bright for
a day or two, and then that "ghost town" feel
sets in again until the next event.
Of course, now that the "Village" is up and
running, we realized and expected that everyone
would flock to it because we've all been waiting
for those great stores to finally find us! I'm just
as excited as you are not to have to drive to Hia-
wassee or Clermont to find places I especially
like to shop or eat at. But I'm also a longtime
resident of this quaint and friendly city, and I
take pride in how nice it looks (especially at this
time of year!) and how much of a connected
community it is with a great spirit!
Plus we also have professional and very com-


mitted merchant and museum groups who are
determined to put Winter Garden on the BIG
map! Whereever I go I put my self-appointed
Winter Garden ambassador hat on and find
myself telling people what a great little jewel
we have down here and how to find us. I can't
believe how many people have no clue where
we are located or how much we have going on
down here!
So if you would like to help us continue
our businesses in downtown and to help keep
things moving in a positive and forward direc-
tion, please think about coming down to see us
- spend a little quality time with your family
and friends here, and, most certainly, spend a
little $$$!
Consider it an investment in the neighbor-
hood that you just LOVE so much! In fact, in
my store I feature a variety of items made by
local artisans in order to "help out a neighbor."
Won't you come down and help them, too?
We're also working on resolving the limited
parking situation and attempting to keep our
shops open later for your convenience. We've
got lots of great deals and no lines, no wait-
ing.
My term of endearment for Winter Garden
has always been "my little slice of Mayberry,"
and having been raised in the big city of Miami,
this is just where I want to be and to have my
children call home. As Dorothy said, "There's
no place like home," and there certainly isn't
any place like downtown Winter Garden!
Hope to see you around town soon.

Migrant Education is thankful for Reading Reindeer


Dear West Orange Times:
On behalf of the Title I Migrant Education
Program, I want to express my appreciation for
your acts of kindness expressed by donating
the Reading Reindeer books for our children.
The company is to be commended for its
interest in and concern for our migrant youth
and their families. It is only through such help


and generosity that those less fortunate can
experience the spirit of caring, sharing and
giving.
Again, thank you from the entire migrant
staff and all of the migrant families we serve.

NCF thanks Reading Reindeer for books


Dear West Orange Times:
On behalf of the West Orange Neighbor-
hood Center for Families coordinator and
staff, we would like to thank the Reading
Reindeer for the wonderful donation of
books for our Christmas Gala on Dec. 12 at
Tanner Hall. More than 100 kids were de-
lighted to receive your books, and more than
200 people were in attendance. Again, we
would like to thank you for making this spe-
cial occasion memorable to the kids as well










for making The Reading Rei


as the staff.
We are looking forward to working with
the Reading Reindeer program in the up-
coming years. As you are aware, the NCF
promotes literacy and believes that read-
ing is essential to our kids, as well as to the
parents. We greatly appreciate the donation
of books and will continue to promote the
Reading Reindeer program.

Dorman attends Gateway real estate conference


Local Realtor David Dorman
of Century 21 Professional Group
recently attended the Gateway
seminar, a three-day conference
in Las Vegas that promised the

Dorman joined more than 700
other top real estate agents across
the country who discussed the
emerging trend of personal mar-

that as more and more real estate
companies continue to reduce
advertising budgets, agents are

added, the most saleable product
is himself.

GOOD REASONS TO
BUY A HOME NOW
If you are I..iL",i uiii prices drop to
buy a home, you might have a long
wait. There are solid reasons to buy a
home now, no matter what conditions
currently shape your local market.
You gain wealth when you buy prop-
erty. The average national appreciation
in the value of real estate is between 5
and 6 percent annually. If you keep the
home, you benefit from home equity
ownership interest, whereas if you pay
rent, you hand the same money overto
someone else. Building home equity is
a means of saving money and having a
stable, secure place to live at the same
time. The home is yours to change and
decorate as you wish, and the more
you improve it, the more your invest-
ment grows. Your niioil mortgage
payments won't increase over time like
your monthly rent. The U.S. govern-
ment allows you to deduct the interest
you pay on your mortgage and your
property taxes. If you decide to sell the
property, you are allowed to keep
$250,000 in tax-free profit as a single
taxpayer or $500.000 as a jointly filing
married couple.
Financial gain, stability, tax savings,
.. jniii'!, ,' and freedom are all good
reasons to buy a home in any real
estate market.
If you would like to talk further about
buying or selling real estate, please
contact Libby Tomyn CRS at Century
21 Professional Group. Call me on my
personal message line. 321-293-2160.

In a record fund-raising effort
for the Central Florida Chapter
of the Juvenile Diabetes Re-
search Foundation (JDRF),
more than $285,000 was raised
in just one evening during the
recent JDRF Cirque Du Cure
Gala. Presenting sponsor of
the gala was West, Green &
Associates, P.L., and firm part-
ner Caryn M. Green served as
chairwoman of the event.
"We are thrilled with the re-
sults of Cirque Du Cure," said
Scot Aurelius. JDRF Central
Florida Chapter Board Presi-
dent.
More than 300 people attend-
ed the formal event at the Por-
tofino Bay Hotel at Universal
Studios. The evening was em-
ceed by Daytime Emmy Award-
winner Hillary B. Smith, who
pla\ s Nora Hanen on the ABC
soap opera One Life:to Live.
. Gala attendees had several
opportunities to participate in
raising funds to support JDRF's
goal to find a cure for juvenile
diabetes and its complications.
In addition to an e tensi\%e silent
auction and a rousing live auc-
tion, attendees had the opportu-
nity to make direct contributions
to JDRF's researchers and sci-
entists throughout the world via
the Fund A Cure program. As
the auctioneer called out fund-


ing levels from $100 to $10,000,
attendees raised their bid cards
for the desired level.
The highlight of the evening
were the stories of children with
juvenile diabetes told in their
own words. Juvenile, or Type
I, diabetes is a chronic condition
that must be managed through-
out life with daily injections of
insulin, and the children fea-
tured described the realities of
living with diabetes.
Green, the gala chairwom-
an, become involved in JDRF
after her daughter was diag-
nosed with juvenile diabetes.
In 2006, Green and a friend
co-hosted a casual, impromptu
fund-raiser that brought in more
than $27,000 in one night. This
was one of the most successful
third-party fund-raisers ever
for the Central Florida Chapter
of JDRF. Her firm has also be-
come a consistent supporter of
JDRF.
"All the people involved
with the gala gave it their all,
and that effort shows in the re-
cord amount of funds .raised,"
said Green. "Every dollar raised
brings us that much closer to a
cure for ju \enile diabetes."

Brandon Damewood earns


By Victoria Laney
Brandon Leon Damewood, Ocoee,
has earned the Eagle Scout Award.
Only five percent of all Boy Scouts
receive this highest achievement
rank. The award will be presented
at a Court of Honor this Saturday,
Dec. 29, at 6 p.m. at the Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on
Silver Star Road, just west of Good
Homes Road.
Brandon began Scouting in Cub
Pack 67 in 2000, advancing through
the ranks of Wolf, Bear and Webelos.
He earned the Arrow of Light, which
is the highest award in Cub Scouting,
before bridging into Boy Scouts in
2003. Now 15, he is in Troop 227.
On the road to Eagle, Brandon
earned 31 merit badges, spent 75
nights camping, hiked 30 miles,
cycled 160 miles and provided 114
hours of community service. He held
the leadership positions of patrol
leader, assistant senior patrol
leader and senior patrol leader. -
In 2006, he was elected to the
Order of the Arrow, which
is Scouting's national honor
society. To be inducted, he had
to complete an "Ordeal," where


he maintained silence, ate small
amounts of food, camped separately
from other Scouts and worked on
improving the campsite.
To earn the rank of Eagle, Brandon
was required to lead a service project.
He found the idea for his project
when young women at church made
quilts for Kids Beating Cancer. The
Orlando based non-profit gives the
quilts to children so they can stay
warm while receiving chemotherapy.
He learned more about the
organization and discovered that
they are the only authorized bone-
marrow donor recruitment agency
of its kind in the Southeast.
Brandon organized a bone-marrow
donor registration drive at the, fire
station on Bluford Avenue in Ocoee.
Volunteers from the community
,came to the firehouse where they
swabbed the inside of their cheeks
to collect DNA. The DNA will be
tested and the results stored in a


registry of potential donors.
Adele Doctor of Winter Garde
is the director of programs for Kid
Beating Cancer.
"She worked with me and guide
me through the entire process
of setting up the marrow dono
registration drive," Brandon said.
He credits his fellow Scout
with helping to make the drive
success.
"They stood out by the roa
with recruiting signs, passed ou
refreshments and helped donor
Doing this drive was really fui
Also, I really appreciate all th
help I received from my family an
Scoutmaster Bryan Harrington."
Domino's Pizza on Blufor
Avenue, Ocoee, and Subway on We
Colonial Drive donated food for th
volunteers and staff. The project
took 80 hours, and Brandon raise
more than $300 toward his project b
selling candy, working for neighbor


Eagle Scout Award
and soliciting donations.
n "It was hard to call Domino's and
Is Subway to ask for donations, but
they were really nice, and they gave
d us plenty of great food. It helped
3s make the drive a success," Brandon
>r said.
He is currently enrolled in Florida's
ts Virtual School, where he is taking
a advanced placement U.S. History
and honors classes. He has also
d attended Ocoee High School, where
ut he played the clarinet in the concert
s. and marching bands. Brandon went
n. to Dallas with the marching band
ie for a half-time performance at the
id 2007 Cotton Bowl. This summer,
Brandon joined his uncle, Randy ,
d Damewood, with the Tennessee
st Music Ambassadors, for a two-and-
ie a-half-week musical performance
ct tour of Europe.
-d He is the son of Rich and Becky
:y Damewood and the brother of
s, Brooke Damewood of Ocoee. BRANDON LEON DAMEWOOD

Free nutrition class
Jan. 7, followed
by weight-loss
challenge
Personal wellness coaches
Jaimie Manor and Sharon
Mason are hosting a free
nutrition class and weight-loss
challenge for West Orange
County residents who are
interested in improving their
health.
The free class is set for
Monday, Jan. 7, from 7-8:30
p.m. at Westwood Church,
located at 4412 N. Apopka-
Vineland Road. The purpose
of the program is to educate
people and offer support in a
group setting.
According to the USDA
Center for Nutrition Policy
and Promotion, four of the 10
leading causes of death in the
United States are heart disease,
cancer, stroke and diabetes,
and that 50 percent or more of
these deaths are diet related.
While 65 percent of today's
American population is
overweight, in addition to
25 percent of children ages
6-19 who are overweight, it is
projected that in 10 years, the
population will be 75 percent
overweight.
Manor and Mason agree that
most people today lead very
sedentary lifestyles and have
busy, stressful schedules that
do not allow for healthy meal
preparation, adequate time for
exercise or restful sleep, which
all lead people down a morbid
path.
The Jan. 7 free nutrition class
promises to offer an abundance
of information and personal
wellness coaching. Participants
are also welcome to enter the
optional weight-loss challenge.
The non-refundable entry fee is
$29. Throughout the six-week
course, Manor and Mason
promise a safe environment that
is non-judgmental, supportive,
educational and goal-oriented.
At the end of the six weeks, the
top two losers in inches and
pounds will split the winnings
from the total entry fees.
"The problem most people
have with losing weight is the
tendency to have low self-
esteem starting out and setting
goals that are extremely high
with little support involved,"
Manor said. "The course will
be ongoing throughout the
year and is being offered as a
free community service. Let's
work as a community and
support each other to change
the statistics from unhealthy to
healthy."
For more information or to
register for the class, contact
Manor at 407-462-9394 or
Mason at 407-766-3075.

Brynn Forsythe, Ashleigh Ferre-
bee, Megan Couch, Devon Coon,
Leti Ceja, Megan Miller and Jor-
dan Schlosser. The victory im-
proved WO's record to 3-1.
"I am very pleased with how
our season is progressing and
how great a job the girls are do-
ing," said Coach Michael Rum-
mel. "This is my best group of
ladies I have had in my five years
as head coach."
The Lady Warriors resume
competition on Jan. 9 at home
against Winter Park and East
Ridge.

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


It has been a wonderful time as we have come
through another Christmas season, with cooler
temperatures and lots of holiday busyness all
around us. It is a time when we all seem a little
kinder, more willing to suffer long lines and
grouchy people in the stores, and for most, a time
to not only see the blessing of God in our lives,
but to see the hurt in those all around us and re-
spond to it as best we can. The Christmas season
seems to bring into sharper focus the abundance
of His blessings. The beauty of lighted trees,
ornaments hanging from every lamp post and
business around town, and all the houses around
the city decorated so brightly makes me want
Christmas to last all year long.
The beauty of it all is that it can.
In John 10:10, Jesus says, "...I have come that
you may have life, abundant life!"
You see, friends, abundance is not measured
by God the way many of us measure it. It has
nothing to do with the size of your home, car,
or bank account. It is measured by the absolute

love that God showed us when, on a day that we
celebrate as Christmas, God Himself gave the
biggest, most precious gift ever given. He began
in a tiny manger in Bethlehem to set into motion
the earthly life that would be sacrificed for us, all
of us who accept His great offer of love,
Many people today have tried sincerely to unite
all mankind, regardless of their respective be-
liefs. "Happy Holidays" has been used to replace
"Merry Christmas" this year more than any I
can remember, in essence to make us all one big
happy family.
Jesus said in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth,
and the life; no one comes to God except through
Me." There is only one way to have that relation-
ship with God; by believing in the Son.
Then, we can experience the true meaning of this
Christmas season all year long.
Jesus IS the reason for the season!
