George Bailey leaves his 'newspapering' mark on West Orange


Runoff referendum
not placed on
Oakland ballot
Because of a miscom-
munication between the
town of Oakland and the
Orange County Supervisor
of Elections Office, the
intended referendum con-
cerning election runoffs
will not appear on the Jan.
29 ballot. Now, registered
voters in Oakland will
only vote in the Presiden-
tial Primary.
The charter amendment
referendum, if passed,
would have put an end to
runoff elections if candi-
dates tied in an election or
if no one received at least
50 percent of the votes
plus one. In that event, a
town official would have
rolled a die to determine
the winner. Runoff elec-
tions typically cost the
town thousands of dollars.
This referendum will
go on the next ballot that
includes candidates.

GEORGE BAILEY


Larsen wants to
emphasize a family
atmosphere at WOHS
and wants teachers to
focus on individuals
rather than the school
grade.

By Amy Quesinberry

"If we could have touched
40 students, we. could be sit-
ting at a B."
These were the stinging
words delivered to the faculty
at West Orange High School
by the newly hired principal,
James Larsen.
It might sound harsh, but
once you sit down and talk to
Larsen, you understand that
he says it not to offend but,
instead, to empower teachers


A referendum of
registered voters and
the consent of Isleworth
property owners is still
needed for final adoption.

By Kathy Aber

If property owners and registered
voters in Isleworth and Butler Bay
agree, the two communities could soon
be part of Windermere.
The Windermere Town Council
approved two ordinances during the Jan.
8 meeting to expand the tbown boundaries
to include these two neighborhoods.
Isleworth encompasses approximately
1,000 acres with 380 platted lots and
880 residents. Butler Bay Unit 1 has
approximately 59 acres and 37 platted
lots.
ThA meeting included lengthy public


When George Bailey purchased The
Winter Garden Times in 1970, he brought
with him a background in business and
advertising and a flair for writing ev-
erything but experience in journalism.
And yet he was fulfilling a dream of run-
ning a weekly newspaper and felt that
anything could be learned. A visit to Mar-
tin Andersen, publisher of The Orlando
Sentinel, pointed him in the direction of
the Winter Garden paper, and he never re-
gretted his decision to buy it. He moved
his wife Anne and four boys to Florida
and quickly immersed himself in the West
Orange community just as it was facing
unprecedented change with the opening
of Walt Disney World. Health problems
forced him to slow down in recent years.
George Bailey died peacefully at home
Wednesday, Jan. 9, but not before leaving
his mark on his community.
OHis legacy in the West Orange com-
munity is indelible, Health Central
C.E.O., Richard Irwin said. His passing
will be mourned by many, but we have


with the realization that they
have a profound impact on ev-
ery single student.
"I believe in .the individu-
al," he told The West Orange
Times last week.
Larsen's outlook on making
a difference in students' lives
is akin to the familiar story of
the little boy trying to save all
the starfish that had washed up
on a beach as many as he
can, one at a time.
The teachers' dedication to
their students is important to
the principal.
Larsen plans to implement
the story of the starfish into
his agenda. While at Lockhart
Middle, he asked each teacher
to choose one student the
student who might have spo-
ken coarsely during the first
week of school or might con-
stantly show up late or might


not lost George Bailey.
Bailey remained active in the commu-
nity and the newspaper even after giving
up the title of publisher. Had he remained
healthy he would still be working today.
"We will attempt to continue to oper-
ate with the same principals that he in-
stilled," said Andrew Bailey, publisher of
The West Orange Times and Bailey's son.
"That's the best way we can pay tribute
to him for the example he provided for
all of us."
Bom Feb. 1, 1925, George 'grew up
in Engelwood, N.J. and graduated from
Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass.,
where, he was always proud to say, he
was a classmate and friend of President
George H.W. Bush. He went on to gradu-
ate from the U.S. Military Academy at
West Point in 1946 and served in the In-
fantry in Korea until 1954. He worked in
advertising agencies in New York City,
Atlanta, Detroit and Dallas before mov-
ing to Florida. The purchase of the Winter
Garden Times marked the beginning of a


show a lack of interest in learn-
ing. Once the teachers named
their "starfish," they received
a pewter starfish pin for their
lanyard to remind them every
day to work a little harder with
that one child.
...As many as he can, one at
a time....
Before his interview with
the Times last week, Larsen
had a senior in his office and
was giving her tips to remem-
ber when taking math tests.
He said she entered his of-
fice with the mindset that she
could fail her senior year but
left with the confidence she
needed to succeed in math and
participate in graduation day.
And so it goes throughout

City speaks out against

property-tax amendment


By Michael Laval

Winter Garden will appeal to its
citizens over the next 12 days to vote
against the proposed property tax
amendment on Jan. 29.'
The City Commission passed a
resolution at last Thursday's meeting
to spend public funds on direct-mail
fliers designed to sway public opinion
against the property tax amendment.
The resolution also allows for the city
to spread its message through televi-
sion, print and Internet communica-
tions.
The direct-mail flier approved by
the commission points out what it
calls the hidden costs of the possible
tax reform for local citizens. Win-
ter Garden already, made significant
budget cuts last year when a measure
passed by the Florida Legislature re-
sulted in $2.2 million in lost ad va-
lorem revenues.


City Manager Michael Bollhoefer
told The West Orange Times on Mon-
day that if the proposed amendment is
passed Jan. 29, the city could lose an-
other $900,000. The loss of income,
he added, would likely result in more
budget cuts for the next fiscal year.
Dolores Key, city economic de-
velopment director, states in the flier:
"In order to comply with unfunded
mandates, cities are forced to cut pro-
grams that relate to quality-of-life is-
sues for the citizens they serve. Many
cities have been forced to drastically
cut parks and recreation programs,
special events (July 4th celebrations,
holiday parades, green markets, etc.),
outreach programs and redevelop-
ment objectives in order to pay for
the requirements of Federal and State
government."
The city's position is that the curent

hearings on both ordinances before a
vote by elected officials.
The Town Council voted 3-2 for the
annexation of Isleworth with council
members Bums Hovey and Ron Martin
voting no.
The vote was 4-1 for the annexation
of Butler Bay Unit 1 with Council
Member Bob Sprick voting no.
The council is moving forward with
the annexation process for both areas
despite objections by attorneys and staff
from Orange County.
In the case of Isleworth, there are two
further steps required to complete the
annexation.
"This is an unusual type of
annexation," said Wilkes.
During the meeting, Windermere
Town Attorney Tom Wilkes explained
the procedure.
Since registered voters own less than
30 percent of the acreage in Isleworth,

Oakland working on

water master plan


By Amy Quesinberry

The town of Oakland is taking
measures to resolve its serious water
problems after facing a quarter-million-
gallon deficit in, the backup water
supply last August.
Commissioners hired CPH of
Orlando in September to create the
town's first-ever water system master
plan. The firm came before the Town
Commission at its Jan. 8 meeting and
presented the preliminary findings.
Residents use an average of 600,000
gallons of water per day the
equivalent of 417 gallons each minute.
The peak-hour flow rate is between
1,700 and 1,800 gallons per minute. In
2006, the water consumption went as
high as 1.3 million gallons in a day (902
gallons/minute).
On Aug. 14 of last year, residents
consumed so much water that the
250,000-gallon tank at ABC Bus was
drained. And although everyone still had
water that day, it ran slower during peak


times because it came directly from the
town wells instead of the tanks.
Oakland also has a tank near Town
Hall with a capacity of 100,000.
At the Jan. 8 meeting, CPH told the
commission the following:
make more efforts to reduce the per
capita consumption.
add more storage in order to serve
additional connections.
keep existing elevated storage tank
in service.
continue utilizing ABC Bus'facility
to help supplement system pressure.
operate the water distribution system
as an integrated looped network.
pursue a reliability water system
interconnect with the city of Winter
Garden.
The last bullet caught the attention
of Mayor Kathy Stark, who expressed
a keen interest in the idea of a mutual-
aid'agreement with Winter Garden. She
said this had already been discussed

(See Oakland, 3A)


from the owners of 50 percent of that
acreage. Unregistered voters, the
homeowners association and other
entities such as developers own more
than 50 percent of the real estate.
Once this consent is obtained,
the town will hold a referendum of
registered voters in the community.
At the meeting, the council also
amended the language in the ordinance
to address the eventuality that sufficient
consent agreements might not be
obtained in time for a referendum that
is now set for March.
The ordinance allows for the
referendum to be rescheduled at a later
date through the end of 2012.
"I'm not sure any city in Orange
County has had this type of annexation,"
said Wilkes.
In the case of Butler Bay, only a
referendum of registered voters will be
required to finalize the annexation.
* At la week's public hearing, Orange


County Attorney Linda Brehmer Lanosa
presented Orange County's objections to
the annexations to the Town Council;
"Orange County objects for a variety
of reasons," said Lanosa.
"The town has failed to meet legal
requirements for annexation. The
town's annexation reports are woefully
inadequate."
She argued the county's position that
the town is not capable of providing
services after the annexation that
are substantially the same as those it
currently provides. In her remarks, she
specifically targeted fire, rescue and
emergency medial services.
Windermere Town Attorney Wilkes
said he was stunned by Lanosa's
arguments.
"I don't agree with any of the
things she's said," Wilkes responded.
"The arguments that she's making are

Amendment
current property tax system
is unfair, that tax caps placed
by outside authorities ignore
community circumstances and
needs and that local citizens
should have local control over
their taxes.
"Residents have come to
expect and deserve the ser-
vices provided by their local
government," Key states in the
flier. "The tax referendum, as
presented, does not analyze or
address the realities of local is-
sues, the needs of local citizens
or recognize the core values of
communities. Passing more leg-
islation without addressing the
inequities of the tax structure,
understanding the implications
on quality-of-life.or the bottom-
line affect on the community as
a whole, is a disservice."
Bollhoefer said he is hope-
ful citizens will vote against
the amendment, but he is fear-
ful that state lawmakers could
impose more measures in the
coming year resulting in lost
revenues for Florida cities.

"You have to work with

that would invalidate the
annexation or would be

challenges."
While addressing the
council regarding the Isleworth
annexation, Windermere
resident Cecil Robinson of
East Fifth Avenue said: "I
am concerned that a conflict
like this has arisen between
the town of Windermere
and Orange County. I would
think that the elected officials
of Windermere and Orange
County could get together and
try to decide how this money
bould be best spent to serve
everyone and look at the big
picture. Apparently this is not
being done."
Property taxes on real
estate in Isleworth amounts
to approximately $3.5 million
annually a current source
of revenue for Orange County
that is used primarily for fire
and rescue services.
Currently, Windermere
provides fire and rescue
services through a paid
agreement, with Ocoee and
its fire department. Through
an automatic aid agreement
between Ocoee and Orange
County, the two respective
fire departments respond to
emergencies across municipal
boundaries, including within
Windermere. During the recent
public hearing, Orange County
repeatedly told Windermere
officials its fire department
would no longer respond to
calls in new areas annexed to
town, such as Isleworth and
Butler Bay.
Council Member Ron
Martin said he is disappointed
with Orange County.

bullied myself," said Martin.

"We have a responsibility to
provide quality of life to our
citizens. If we take this on, we
need to work out some kind of
agreement."
In his comments, Council
Member John Briggs
assured property owners in
Isleworth and Butler Bay that
Windermere is committed to
fulfilling its obligation for fire
and rescue services.
"If you chose to become
part of this town, we will not
let this be an issue," Briggs
said.
A mail ballot referendum
among the registered voters
in both communities is set for
March with a return deadline
for ballots of March 11. The
referendum for Isleworth
voters will take place in March
only if consent agreements
from property owners, who are
not registered voters, such as
the homeowners association,
Isleworth Country Club,
developers and other corporate
entities.

Windermere resident against proposed annexation


Dear Mayor and Council Members:
I have been a Windermere resident for
approximately 20 years and have supported
you in the mayoral elections. Unfortunately,
I no longer feel you represent the goals and
desires of Windermere people and have set
your priorities on higher political aspirations.
Windermere is such a unique town with a
character all its own, and these have to be some
of the reasons you reside here. Yet when faced
with the prized purse of $3.5 million worth of
tax revenue from Isleworth property owners,
the temptation has aligned you with a wealthy
gated community sharing none of the values
of the town of Windermere. Windermere
has never been a gated community and is
opposed to the life style and aesthetics gated
communities are all about.
Your promise of a fire substation within the
town of Windermere is a poor trade off and
will hand over a voting block more than 800
residents strong a voting block that could
determine the future direction of town politics
and life as we know it. Is the Isleworth tax
revenue really worth a gated community
gaining control of our little town?


Windermere's 2,200 residents are being
well served by contracted fire protection from
Ocoee at its central location on Maguire Road.
Why would anyone want a fire facility located
in the middle of town with large commercial
vehicles blaring fire horns at all hours? As a
resident of Seventh Avenue, I certainly do not
support the proposal of building this facility on
Main Street and Seventh Avenue. These three
parcels of land were to be used in the future
for a purpose in keeping with the character
of this town. Certainly a fire station to serve
a wealthy gated community outside the town
limits was not a part of the comprehensive
plan for Windermere. This parcel of land is the
last piece of prized property in a town that has
always prided itself in maintaining a quality
of life apart from gated communities.
The residents of Windermere are asking the
council members and mayor not to be lured
by the promise of increased revenues, which
ultimately will not pay for themselves, and to
honor their election promises to well represent
the people of Windermere.

Windermere


He'll be
We're saddened with the passing of
my father, George Bailey, the patriarch
of The West Orange Times but happy that
his four decades in West Orange County
left him satisfied with his life. He left
this life wanting nothing more than he
had his faith, his family, his friends
and the respect of his community. He
had little interest in material things, had
few regrets and, after surviving a tour in
the Korean War, considered every day a
blessing and a bonus.
Dad was a perfect fit for the job of
small-town weekly publisher. He had
a keen interest in people and a genuine
devotion to his community. He never
tired of listening and learning about
the lives of West Orange County. And
now that devotion is being returned
with the outpouring of love from the
community.
He took his responsibility as a
newspaper publisher seriously and
became a champion and cheerleader for

Recollections from
Becoming part of the. community was a
must. If we were to report on the happenings,
we had to gain the trust of the people who lived
here, many of them for their whole lives. We
wondered whether aliens could be accepted as
publishers of their newspaper. But we were not
only accepted we were welcomed. George
maintained that people had him confused with
George Barley and thought he was the mayor of
Winter Garden. Barley became one of his many
close friends.
It was a different world in 1970 from what we
live in now. Disney World was still a year away,
the newspaper covered six elementary schools
and two junior-senior high schools, restaurants
were few and far between, and you had to drive
to Orlando or Winter Park to see a movie.
Needless to say, computers were not a part
of our lives at that point. The typesetting equip-
ment was so noisy you could hear it clanking all
the way from our Boyd Street office to Tilden
Street. We continue to be in awe of how the
computer age affected our business. George
never did learn to do much with the computer
but suggested to Andrew that he buy him a little

new things and enjoyed so much his role as an
Orange County court mediator. He also con-
sidered it an honor, because of his West Point
background, to sitron selection committees for
the military academies.
He was an active member of the Rotary Club
of Windermere and was a strong advocate for
the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholars program of
Rotary International. As a sponsor, mentor and
continuing source of encouragement, he helped
several local students attain sizeable scholar-
ships for overseas study and service to Rotary
as goodwill ambassadors.
George had received pnany accolades. In
2004, Jim Hinson of the Dr. Phillips Foundation
was master of ceremonies at the presentation
of the Leiser Colburn Humanitarian Award by
Edgewood Children's Ranch.
"Each holiday season many of us look for-
ward to watching 'It's a Wonderful Life,'" said
Hinson. "At the end of the film, a group from
the community gathers around the leading char-
acter, George Bailey, to express love, support
and how much they value him."
George maintained that he had acquired fame
through the Frank Capra film. "But I'm not as
handsome as Jimmy Stewart," he would say.
In 2002 Bailey was presented the Boy Scout
Golden Eagle Award. Former Walt Disney
World Executive Bob Matheison said he spreads
"pixie dust," referring to Bailey working hard
in the background.
Other honors included the Friends of Lake
Apopka and Oakland Nature Preserve's recog-
nition in 2006 and the West Orange Chamber
of Commerce George Bailey Award, presented
annually since 2005. But the honor he was most
proud of was the naming of George Bailey Park
where he often watched his grandson play base-
ball.

West Orange. But he never shied away
from taking a strong stand on issues
even when it was on an opposing side
of a friend.
During his declining health over the
past few years, he never complained
and continued to live with as much zest
and enthusiasm as he could muster. He
attended church regularly until just two
weeks ago. He often heralded the secret
to his success Anne, his wife of 53
years. Our mother stood by him until the
very end. In their half-century together,
she only left his side while he "worked
the room" during dinners, meetings and
community events.
Our entire family is proud of the legacy
that George Bailey left through his life
and appreciative to the community for
making it possible. Dad died peacefully,
fearlessly, contented and grateful. We
should all be so lucky.

laptop because it probably would be simpler than
a larger one.
George was well-respected but sometimes
controversial. He ran a detailed story one time
about the exciting news that a creosote manu-
facturing plant had been approved for the shores
of Lake Butler. Funny story. But he forgot to
wind up with "April fool!" so it wasn't very
funny to a lot of people. In addition to cancelled
subscriptions he got a pie in the face from the
Windermere Rotary president, Bob Pleus.
He was grateful to the people of West Orange
for being patient as we learned our way around.
It sure is different now, as a competent staff and
the latest electronic equipment put out a news-
paper every week. Our son, Andrew, has been
publisher for longer than his father was, and we
are thankful that he was able to come aboard and
help maneuver us into the computer age.
His family is grateful for the countless tributes
received during, the past week. It is indeed heart-
warming to hear about the many lives George
touched.

"For years to come, people will drive by this
park and they will always remember the great
contribution George Bailey made to this com-
munity," Orange County Commissioner Jacobs
said at the dedication of the park in 2002.
In a final tribute to Bailey from Orange Coun-
ty, a proclamation was read at the opening of
the Board of County Commissioners meeting
on Tuesday.
Following the reading Mayor Rich Crotty
said Bailey, "was a true loyal friend for a lot of
years to a lot of folks in this community."
"Beyond the love of his friends and the love
of his family he also loved Orange County and
was a great contributor to this community and
a great friend to many," Crotty added about
his longtime friend. "By gosh, once you had
George Bailey on your side, things usually went
pretty well in West Orange County.
"He was a great leader and a devoted friend
to many of us," Jacobs said. "We will all miss
George."
He was a longtime active member of the Epis-
copal Church of the Messiah in Winter Garden,
where he had served on the vestry.
George is survived by his wife of 53 years,
Anne; sons, Andrew of Windermere and John of
Bainbridge Island, Wash; sister and brother-in-
law, Carol and Jess Green of Windermere; sister,
Sue Mason of San Rafael, Calif; grandchildren,
Erin Bailey and Zachary Bailey of Windermere,
Laura Bailey of Albuquerque, N.M., and John
Bailey Jr. of Cibola, Texas. He was predeceased
by his sons Steve and Terry.
A memorial service will be held at noon this
Thursday, Jan. 17, at the St. Luke's Methodist
Church, 4851 S. Apopka-Vineland Road with
the Rev. Tom Rutherford officiating. A recep-
tion will follow at the St Luke's Methodist
Church Welcome Hall of Building C.

DEP encourages green resolutions for New Year


The Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP) is encouraging residents
to make green resolutions for
2008 and beyond.
Each week, a new green tip
is posted on the DEP's Web site
to help Floridians make their
homes and offices more envi-
ronmentally friendly.
"As the fourth most populous
state in the nation, the people of
Florida play a critical role in
preserving our environment,"
said DEP Secretary Michael
Sole. "There are simple steps
that we can all take in our daily
lives to help protect and con-
serve Florida's natural resourc-
es for future generations.
"Even small things like
changing one incandescent
light bulb to an Energy Star
qualified bulb can have a big
impact," Sole added. "For ex-
ample, if all the households in
Florida changed just one light
bulb to a compact fluorescent
bulb, the combined effort would
save enough energy to light all
the households in Tallahassee
for more than two-and-a-half
years."
To help the public get started,
the DEP offers 10 simple reso-
lutions to become "greener" in
2008:
'urn off screen savers
- The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) esti-
mates that using a computer's
sleep mode reduces its energy
consumption by 60-70 percent.
A screen saver that displays
moving images cause monitors
to consume as much electric-


ity as it does in active use. The
best screen saver is also the best
energy saver: turn off the moni-
tor when not in use. Turning
off the computer will decrease
the amount of energy it uses,
reduce its mechanical tress and
prolong its life.
Eliminate paper waste
- Every year, enough paper is
thrown away to make a 12-foot
wall from New York to Califor-
nia. Each ton of paper recycled
saves 17 trees and 7,000 gal-
lons of water. Recycled paper
also saves 60 percent energy in
comparison to new paper and
generates 95 percent less air
pollution.
Stop junk mail Each
year, the average American
household receives about 1.5
trees' worth of junk mail. A va-
riety of online vendors offer to
reduce the amount of junk mail
received.
Recycle One recycled
aluminum can saves enough
energy to power a television
or computer for three hours
or a 100-watt light bulb for 20
hours. A six-pack of recycled
aluminum cans saves enough
energy to drive a car five miles.
Purchase reusable shop-
ping bags According to the
U.S. EPA, Americans consume
about 380 billion plastic bags,
sacks and wraps a year, while
fewer than five percent are re-
cycled. Paper bags, however,
are also a problem.
Paper sacks generate 70 per-
cent more air pollutants and 50
times more water pollutants
than plastic bags. While paper


bags do eventually biodegrade,
an estimated 14 million trees
a year have to be cut down to
make 10 billion paper bags. A
sturdy, reusable bag needs only
to be used 11 times to have a
lower environmental impact
than using 11 disposable plastic
bags.
Slash the packaging -
Buying food and other products
in reusable or recycled pack-
aging can reduce carbon diox-
ide (C02) emissions by 230
pounds a year. Recycling all of
a household's waste newsprint,
cardboard, glass and metal can
.reduce emissions an additional
850 pounds a year and approxi-
mately 410 pounds of garbage
from entering a landfill.
Use green cleaners -
Americans generate 1.6 million
'tons of waste each year from
common cleaning products
with potentially hazardous in-
gredients. The state encour-
ages citizens to purchase green
cleaning products or to make
their own using simple and ef-
fective ingredients such as bak-
ing soda, salt and vinegar.
Get involved Since
Florida's natural resources be-
long to its residents, the state
asks people to voice their ques-
tions, comments and sugges-
tion by contacting the DEP at
850-245-2118 or citizensser-
.vices@dep.state.fl.us.

Local businessman and en-
trepreneur Dallas McRae has
been making waves with his
new company Tile Tecks. Now
in its second year of opera-
tion, Tile Tecks, McRae said,
is an environmentally friendly
water-conserving company that
cleans swimming pools, spas
and fountain tile without us-
ing harmful chemicals or other
damaging materials.
This concept, McRae added,
has been quickly embraced by
a fast-growing green-minded
client base that includes both
commercial and residential cus-
tomers. Tile Tecks is one of the
few green tile cleaning compa-
nies operating in the Southeast
and the only, McRae said, in
Central Florida.
Using a simple formula of
pressurized water and environ-
mentally friendly materials that
are safe for people, pets and
plants, McRae has established a
diverse client base that includes
Universal Studios Resort prop-
erties and other area resorts, as
well as residential customers in
Windermere, Isleworth, Cel-
ebration and Winter Park.
"When you think of a green
company, tile cleaning doesn't
come to mind," McRae said.
"But what we do and how we
do it can have a profound im-
pact on helping the environ-
ment."
One big factor is water con-
servation. Tile Tecks doesn't
have to drain a swimming pool
to work, which results in signif-
icant water savings when con-
sidering an average swimming


Many buyers favor green homes, but don't understand green living


Homebuyers appreciate the
benefits of "green" commu-
ni-ties, although many resi-
dents don't necessarily lead
more eco-friendly lives than
their neigh-bors in traditional
homes, ac-cording to a pair of
recent Uni-versity of Florida
studies.
The findings suggest some
homeowners in green com-
muni-ties don't know enough
about how to reduce their en-
viron-mental impact, said Mark
Hostetler, an associate profes-
sor with UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Services.
Green communities are de-
signed to have less environ-
mental impact than traditional
housing developments. The
homes often feature energy-
saving appliances, extensive
. insulation and yards with native
plants; common areas typically
include lots of green space and
drainage systems that minimize
stormwater runoff.
"People moving into green
developments may simply be
interested in open space, en-
ergy efficient homes or the
change to see wildlife and may
not bring with them a strong
commitment to environmental
issues," said Hostetler.
"You have to engage the peo-
ple that live in these communi-
ties," he added. "It's a combi-
na-tion of things, of not only
edu-cation, raising awareness,
but understanding the barriers
that everyday people have, to
make it easier for them to in-
volve themselves in a sustain-
able type of living."
In the studies, Hostetler
and graduate student Krystal
Noiseux queried new home-
owners in pairs of Central Flor-
ida communities. Each pair


con-sisted of a green housing
devel-opment and a traditional
one of similar size, home value
and location.
The researchers mailed ques-
tionnaires to more than 900
households in total, of which
340 responded. The question-
naires were sent in June 2006
and mailed only to residents
who bought their homes in the
past two years.
Residents in both types of
communities were concerned
with indoor air quality, green
space and energy efficiency, all
of which are usually priorities
in green developments.
But residents in both types
of communities had only a
moder-ate- to low-level com-


mitment to environmental is-
sues, responses showed. The
questionnaire con-tained a total
of 40 questions about environ-
mental knowl-edge, attitudes
and behaviors.
The results are significant,
Hostetler said, because all ho-
meowners can influence their
own environmental impact.
Day-to-day choices, such as
setting the thermostat, wa-
tering the lawn or choosing
plants for the yard influence a
household's resource consump-
tion. The studies indicate that
residents of green communities
don't neces-sarily conserve re-
sources better than residents of
traditional de-velopments.
"In any community,, green


or traditional, there's a small
per-centage of people who'd go
all-out to live sustainably, and
an-other group who'd refuse
to inconvenience themselves
in the least," Hostetler said.
The rest, possibly 80-90 per-
cent, Hostetler estimates, are
willing to reduce their resource
consumption but may not un-
derstand how. Green commu-
ni-ties, Hostetler suggested,
should thoroughly educate
homebuyers on living green.


Tile Tecks owner and found-
er Dallas McRae takes a dip
and begins cleaning tiles at
a local pool. Tile Tecks is
an environmentally friendly,
water-conserving company
that cleans swimming pools,
spas and fountain tiles with-
out using harmful chemi-
cals.

pool contains 10,000-15,000
gallons of water. The typical
Tile Tecks job takes about two


to three hours and can last five
years or more.
Tile Tecks is not to be con-
fused with pool service com-
panies that clean and change
chemicals in home pools or
spas.
"Our magic is restoring pool
and spa tile that is dull, dingy
and drab because of the excess
build-up of calcium," McRae
said. "We don't test water; we
don't change chemicals."
McRae said he selected Cen-
tral Florida to launch Tile Tecks
because he believes there are
more swimming pools and spas
in this market than any other in
Florida, while there are no oth-
er businesses that provide this
kind of service.
"I've cultivated a nice niche
by staying ahead of. the curve,
but it's just a matter of time be-
fore others recognize both the
potential and benefits of being
efficient and eco-friendly and
start doing what I do," he said.
If and when competition ar-
rives, McRae said he doesn't
foresee expanding outside the
local market.
"There are more than a mil-
lion households in Metro Or-
lando alone and 50-75 percent
of them have swimming pools,"
he said. "There's more than
enough business to go around
to keep everyone busy."

Nurses complete
RN program
Two licensed practical
nurses at Health Central Park
- Pat Brown and Rachel Pit-
tala have completed the
registered nurse program and
are now working full-time at
Health Central.
Pat Brown began working at
HCP in July 1988 as an LPN
and was a real stabilizing force
on the unit, becoming one of
the first LPN supervisors. She
has earned the love and respect
of residents, family members,
staff, supervisors and physi-


PAT BROWN


cians.
She has been recognized as
employee of the month for her
contributions. Through much
of her time at HCP, despite
working hours and family com-
mitments, she diligently and
persistently pursued her goal to
become a registered nurse.
Last December, she suc-
cessfully completed all of the
course work and clinicals in
the RN program at Valencia
Community College.
Rachel Pittala made working
at HCP a family affair when she
joined her mother, a certified
nursing assistant, as a fellow
employee in December 1996.
She served as an LPN until
marrying and starting a family,
but she returned to the job and
actively pursued her education


RACHEL PITTALA
to become a registered nurse.
Despite working at the hos-
pital for her clinicals, Pittala
maintained her loyalty to HCP
by working in pool status un-
til she, too, completed the RN
program in December.
Both nurses left HCP this
month, but they are not lost to
the district because they are
now at Health Central.

Dr. Peter Taylor, a Health

(AEDs) to Windermere Prep.
The AED is a computerized de-

shock is required. By having an
AED close by, victims of sud-

provided with immediate care
to prevent death.
Although SCA is the lead-
ing cause of death among
adults over the age of 40, ap-

Windermere


Ashley Johnson returns

home from Madagascar


By Victoria Laney

Ashley Johnson has returned
from spending 18 months in
the Madagascar Mission of the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-
day Saints. She spent her time
on La Reunion, a small island
off the coast of Africa that is a
department of the Republic of
France. She survived two vol-
canic eruptions and a deadly
epidemic carried by mosquitoes
that sickened almost a quarter of
the population of 800,000. She
was addressed as "Sister" and
spent her time serving others.


ASHLEY JOHNSON


Parents Brian and Cheri
Johnson of Windermere were
relieved to pick her up at the
airport just before Christmas.
The 22-year-old was pleased to
be home but wept when she took
off her missionary identification
badge for the last time.
She reported on her mis-
Zsionary experiences during a
combined meeting of the Win-
dermere, Olympia, Ocoee and
Winter Garden wards. She gave
her testimony in French, which
was the official language of her
mission. She told about many
missionary experiences.
"We did a lot of service.
We would help clear land for
people who could not do it
themselves.... We would plant
gardens to help the people have
t; better diets. Most of them were
poor arid lived off government


Children's church
available at
Windermere Union
Windermere Union Church
began a new children's church
program at the beginning of
the school year. Targeted for
children who are old enough
for a church learning program
but too young to stay in a tra-
ditional church service, the
program has grown immensely
since its inception.
Children attend the begin-
ning.of the service with their
parents and then leave to par-
ticipate in their own age-ap-
propriate activities, which help
them learn more about God in
a fun environment. Ages 5-11
are the main participants in the
program.
Children's church is avail-
able during both Sunday ser-
vices at 9 and 11:15 a.m. The
church provides childcare for
younger children during these
times as well.
The church is on Park
Ridge-Gotha Road in Win-
dermere. For more informa-
tion, call the church office at
407-876-2112.


Jazzercise classes
Windermere Union Church
offers Jazzercise classes three
days a week.
The first month is $20, and
joining fees apply. Childcare is
available Tuesday and Thursday
at 9:30 a.m. For more informa-
tion, call 407-234-6165.


assistance. We did ironing every
week for an older couple. The
wife couldn't do it because she
had a stroke. We just wanted to
help people."
The mission had elders and
sisters from France, Canada,
Tahiti, Spain, New Zealand,
Germany and Australia.
"They were some of the most
professional, accomplished and
trustworthy people you could
meet," she said. The mission
president was more than two
hours away by plane, so the mis-
sionaries relied on each other.
The mix of missionaries mir-
rored the ethnic diversity of the
island, which had residents from
Europe and Asia. Many of the
residents were Muslims who
could not convert to Christianity
because it would be dangerous
for them.
"They were the nicest people
who always invited us into their
homes, and we were able to
serve them but could not teach
them," she said.
"One of the things I learned
from my mission: It taught me
more about how to build and
raise a family that will stay
strong and love each other. So
many families had become
broken because of miscommu-
nication. Seeing families in their
homes and learning to love them
taught me a lot about how I can
raise a good family like my par-
ents," Ashley said.
Her father is bishop of the
Windermere Ward, and her
mother is a teacher in the Relief
Society. Brother Blake, 14, and
sister Lindsey, 20, also want to
serve missions.
"I've never been more proud
of her. It is wonderful to know
that she could go there and re-
turn to us having learned so
much and helped so many," said
her father.
She will return to Brigham
Young University in Provo,
Utah, later this month, where she
is a senior majoring in humani-
ties with an emphasis in music.

Life School Musical

performed in Windermere


The children of Windermere
Ministries premiered a one-hour
musical called "Life School
Musical" recently. Under the
direction of Patty Hood and
Mary Ann Vermillion, the chil-
dren, first- through fifth-grad-
ers, worked for only five days
during Winter Music Camp to
memorize the script, lyrics and
choreography and to do the fi-
nal rehearsals for the two per-
formances. Parents and teeliage
church members designed and


made the props and costumes.
Created by Pam Andrews, the
play takes place in a classroom
at Life School, an imaginary
school where kids get way be-
yond the "three R's" and, with
the help of their colorful teacher
Miss Knowsalot, learn the real
keys to life.
The premier took place at
Kempke's Music Conference,
and Andrews was in attendance
to see her musical performed
for the first time. A second per-


formance took place at First
Baptist Church Windermere
over the weekend. The taped
production will be made avail-
able nationwide for promotional
purposes.
The children's choir rehears-
es each Wednesday from 4-5:30
p.m. and is open to the public.
Rehearsals take place at First
Baptist Church Windermere,
300 Main St. For more infor-
mation, contact Patty Hood at

HOME INSPECTIONS
You have just found the "perfect"
house and are eager to make an
offer. It is important to remember,
however, that it may not be as
perfect as it looks. A charming
exterior can often conceal hidden
defects. You should have a struc-
tural inspector go over the house
from the foundation to the roof so
that you can make an informed
decision.
A structural expert can give you
crucial information about the
plumbing, wiring, heating and
cooling systems. He will check the
roof, give you an indication of the
condition of the appliances, and
help you set up a long-term budget
for replacement and repairs. The
inspector can also show you where
the water cut-off valve, circuit
breakers and fuse box are located.
Your agent can advise you about
how to include an inspection in
your offer to purchase and give
you the names of inspectors in
your area. The purchase of a
home is a major investment, and
the cost of an inspection is well
worth the peace of mind it pro-
vides.
If you would like to talk further
about buying or selling real estate,
please contact Libby Tomyn CRS
at Century 21 Professional Group.

Garden Club news
The Robinswood Garden
Club met for the first time at its
new meeting location, the rec-
reation center on Jennings and'
Powers Street in Orlando. Sara
Nicholson was hostess, and door
prizes were won by Betsy Tal-

comed the members, and guest
speaker was Dennis Jones of

video of the Aquifer System of
Central Florida and discussed
how members can save water
by using a rain barrel for water
for potted plants.
He said that grass being plant-

home products that save water.

16A The West Oranige Times Thursday, January 17, 2008


Principal
dents as he can, one at a time.
His plan is to sit with five or six
students a day in the next two
months during preparations for
FCAT. He figures he can have
one-on-one conversations with
between 200 and 300 students
who might need that extra boost
of confidence.
"I believe in 100 percent
gains," he said. "If we can get all
these students to gain each year,
then that's what it's about."
Larsen is quick to point out
that the state-awarded D grade
doesn't match the level of edu-
cation being taught at West Or-
ange. There are 17 high schools
in Orange County, and no other
high school since 2004 has had
more gains in the 3-and-above
category in reading. WOHS
marked a 15-point improve-
ment.
"I have a lot of passion," he
said, "especially when it comes
to perception."
West Orange's graduation rate
since 2003-04 has increased, as
has the attendance rate.
Larsen's goal this summer is
to assess the Advanced Place-
ment program.
"AP has become crucial to get
into college," he said, and West
Orange needs to make sure it
has all the necessary classes.
"What are we doing to pre-
pare these students to get into
AP classes?" he asks.
He's also aware of the impact
hiring a new football coach will
have on the team. This will be
the first football coach the high
school has hired in 17 years,
"and that's crucial to 60 kids
each year."
Larsen was first hired at West
Orange four years ago to serve
as assistant principal. That as-
signment followed a year as
assistant principal at Olympia
High School. In November
2006, Larsen left WO to serve as
principal of Lockhart Middle.
Thirteen months later, he was
asked to return to West Orange
as principal. The students who
were freshmen during his first
Warrior position are now seniors
preparing to graduate.
"It was a surprise to come
back," he said. "I had spent
10 and a half years in middle
school then four years in a high
school.
S"It was good to take princi-
palship of a middle school, even
if for just one year," Larsen said.
"It was a good learning experi-
ence. I do feel prepared."
In addition to having an abun-
dance of passion, the principal
has enough energy for two, it
would seem, and has a habit of
bouncing a basketball even
in his office for inspiration.
He might even hit the floor for
a few pushups while he solves
a dilemma.
Larsen didn't start out want-
ing to be an educator like his
father. He attended Conway
Middle and graduated in 1988
from Colonial High School be-
fore attending the University of
Florida and earning his degree
at the University of Central
Florida. He was five classes
shy of an electrical engineer-
ing degree when he suddenly
felt compelled to switch majors
and become an educator.
"It's very comfortable for
me to be in education," Larsen
said.
His first assignment was
at Memorial Middle School,
where he worked in adminis-
tration from 1993-99. There,
"the kids learned to believe,"
he said.
He spent the next four years
as an administrative dean at Lee
Middle School.
The fact that family roots
run deep at West Orange High
is one of the unique aspects of
West Orange that the principal
respects. Many of the current
students are the children of
WOHS graduates, so Larsen
can appreciate the communi-
ty's devotion to the 32-year-old
school.
After 32 years, West Orange
is getting a major makeover.
The new buildings are being
constructed in the former park-
ing lots, and the outdated and
problematic circular buildings
will be demolished.
The new WOHS will have
a capacity of approximately
3,000. The buildings follow
the same layout as Olympia
High, but Larsen instigated sev-
eral changes to accommodate


a few unique West Orange de-
mographics. One area will now
house classrooms for drafting,
woodshop and manufacturing
and computer tech.
"No other school has the floor
plan like this," he said, adding
that these classes remain pop-
ular at West Orange and it's
important to continue offering
them.
Orange County Public
Schools is still assessing the

and has yet to make a decision
on whether or not it will be used
once the new facility is in op-
eration.
Currently, Larsen said, it is
used for ninth-graders and the
math department, which means
10th-, llth- and 12th-graders
must walk the 8/10 of a mile
- no matter the weather to
attend math classes. And the ad-
ministration has an educational
responsibility to those students
who are losing instructional
time walking back and forth,
he said.
Though new to the principal's
position, Larsen is fiercely loyal
to the Warrior program.
When talking to his teachers,
he said, "I don't preach about
team.
"I promote family. Families

support each other, pick each
other up.... I want to create an
atmosphere of family: dedica-
tion, loyalty, support."
Larsen said he knows he must
gain the trust of the community
because of the D letter grade.
But he thinks "the conversations
that take place at the dinner ta-
bles need to .change."
If children hear parents say-
ing positive comments about
their school, he said, they will
carry that around with them in-
stead of the negativity.
Larsen makes it clear that his
goal is to make West Orange the
best high school around.
"I believe very strongly that
this is my school," Principal
Larsen said. "Things work out
the way they're supposed to.
This was home for me."

Olympia boys soccer
After a tough, 2-0 Friday
afternoon loss to a very strong
Orangewood Christian team,
the Olympia boys varsity soc-
cer team achieved their 1st win
of 2008 with a convincing 3-0
victory over East Ridge Wednes-
day night. In a game in which
Olympia dominated possession,
East Ridge defended very well
and kept the game close well into
the second half before Olympia
finally pulled away. This win
results in Olympia earning the
3rd seed in the upcoming district
tournament.
The depleted Titans played
with only 14 players as their
injury-plagued season contin-
ued last week. Immediately from
kickoff, the Titans pressed for-
ward for the opening goal. Erik
Lynch, Aron Hotalen, and Vinny
Torres dominated in midfield, as
the Titans searched for scoring
chances.
Bobby Strickland struck
the post with an excellent left-
footed drive and James Goss-
mann missed the rebound when
it looked likely that the Titans
would surely score. The Titans
finally took the lead in the 28th
minute when a long Tyson Pryor
throw-in was headed across goal
by Brad Smith for James Goss-
mann to volley home. The Ti-
tafis continued to push forward,
but the game remained 1-0 at
half time.
In the second half, the Titans
attacked, searching for further
goals. Forwards Tyson Pryor
and Diogo Ferriera were causing
East Ridge problems, and Jerry
Hatsady, playing outfield as a
forward, provided creativity and
pace. Two goals on either side
of the water break finally secured
the victory. Sophomore Sean
Gossmann played an excellent
through ball for Tyson to control
and finish, then good attacking
play resulted in a flicked header
from Jerry which was headed
home by Sean Gossmann, his
first-ever varsity goal. The Ti-

r posts 2 more wins
and Andrew Tungate played
stellar defense to preserve the
shutout.
In Friday night's game vs. the
Boone Braves, the Titans ex-
ploded in the first half for four
goals and held on for a 4-1 win
to raise their record to 10-2-5
for the season. Sean Gossmann
continued his hot streak with a
big game, contributing towards
all four Titan scores with 2 goals
and 2 assists.
The Titans were on the board
early with their first goal only
one minute into the game when
Sean Gossmann hustled down
the back side and finished off a
beautiful cross pass from Jean
Socio. Only 12 minutes later,
Sean Gossmann pushed through
a short cross to Diogo Ferriera,
who drilled in the second goal
from the left side.
Still on the attack, Strickland
sailed a nice comer kick across
the goal to the back side, where
Sean Gossmann caught it and
chipped it back up towards the
middle in front of the goal to
Brad Smith, who struck a perfect
header to stake a 3-0 lead. Not
finished yet, Andrew Duncanson
lofted a pass from the left corer
to the middle, where Brad took
a shot off the keeper and Sean
Gossmann knocked in the de-
flection for his second goal of the
night and a 4-0 halftime lead.
Although the Titans contin-
ued to push and had some more
chances in the second half,
Boone's defense played stronger
and held the Titans scoreless for
the last 40 minutes. The Braves
caught the Olympia defense off-
guard about mid-way through
the half, taking advantage of a
three-on-two fast break to score
up the middle and take away the
shutout. But the Titan defense
of Smith, Pryor, Hotalen and
Strickland held strong and kept
the Braves away for the balance
of the game.
The Titans play host to another
strong Winter Park team in their
regular season Senior Night fina-
le this Friday night at 7:30pm.

Diamonds Fastpitch take ISA 12U 'B' state title


The 11 young girls of the Di-
amonds Fastpitch team became
champions by winning the ISA
12U "B" state title last month
in Lakeland. They placed No.
1 in the seeding games and
won-the championship the
next day.
Homerun-hitter Lizzie
Markidis hit a grand slam that
got the team into the champi-
onship and pitched a one hitter.
Karina Langer was outstand-
ing as shortstop and had mul-
tiple hits and multiple stolen
bases.
Whitnee "Fred" Moore was
error-free on first base and also
had two doubles and one triple.


Cindy Cuevas played left field
and threw several runners out
at the plate. Hailey Drawe on
third base had back-to-back
hits and RBIs.
Taylor Walters played sec-
ond base with three double
plays. She hit right- and left-
handed and had a three-run
RBI double. Jessica Carpenter
was right fielder and was flaw-
less on fly balls and throwing
runners out at the plate and
first base and also hitting in
the gaps.
Jeri Loffler.was solid behind
the plate, picking off runners
at every base. Julie Waitt was
outstanding in center field


and also at the plate. Haley
Goodwin was excellent on the
mound, pitching many strike-
outs, and at second base. She
also had two triples and two
doubles.
Taylor Marris played right
field on the first day of the'
tournament. Sunday she was a
base bandit and scored almost
every time. Sam Negrete was
hot there, but was a big reason
why the team was at the state
tournament.
A big thank-you from Coach
Gordy Goodwin goes to all the
parents and coaches for their
support, as well as the team
sponsors.

pieces to human-scale columns
and room-size walls.

Craig Evans, a former Orange

has been hired as the new ex-
ecutive director of the Founda-
tion for Orange County Public
Schools, replacing Nancy Peed,
who held the position for a de-
cade and has retired.
Evans, who spent the major-
ity of his career in pubic educa-
tion, worked in the OCPS from
1987-1999, serving as a teacher,
dean of students, assistant prin-
cipal and principal.
A graduate of Ithaca College,
he earned a master's degree in
performance (violin) and a mas-
ter's degree in music education
from Florida State University
and used those talents through-
out his teaching career. He also
earned a doctorate in education
from the University of Central
Florida in 1997, with an em-
phasis in educational leadership
and school law.
During his term at OCPS,

events such as Relay For Life
and Food For Families, exud-
ing qualities such as leadership
and service, excelling academi-
cally and showing versatility by
participating in extracurricular
activities the members of the
West Orange High School Na-
tional Honor Society Chapter
are consistently active in the
community. This year, how-
ever, they are reaching out to
high school students outside of
West Orange County. In addi-
tion to the National Honor Soci-
ety's regular involvement in the
community, it will be hosting
the annual NHS State Conven-
tion this month.
Each year, a different school
is chosen to host this reward-
ing event. On Jan. 25, more
than 100 high school student
delegates will arrive in Winter
Garden to take part in the an-
nual convention. The event is
themed "Building Bridges,"
illustrating the clinic's funda-
mental purpose: to help students
get involved and become better
leaders.
Over the course of two days,
students will listen to motiva-
tional speakers, including Mike
Smith, Dr. Melissa Sohn, Su-

also partake in a variety of lead-
ership-focused workshops.
"The convention will not
only be beneficial to those del-
egates attending," said Lorena
Perez, vice president of the
West Orange NHS. "Members
of the West Orange NHS will be
directing several of the work-
shops."
Planning for the conference
began in late August. Since
then, students have been hold-
ing monthly carwashes and
bake sales to raise funds for
the event.
"The planning for the event
has been a tedious affair," said
Michael Gunter, NHS presi-
dent. "We've had to handle
everything from purchasing
tablecloths to deciding what
food will be catered."
However arduous and time-
consuming the convention plan-
ning may be, students at West
Orange High School are certain
that the outcome for the event
will be worth the hard work.
"Hosting this convention will
give us the opportunity to reju-
venate the state chapter of the
National Honor Society, which
has, lost its luster over the past
few years," said Gunter.

High National Honor Society

upcoming event, contact Linda

"Praise be to the Lord, for He has heard my cry
for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart
leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song."
Psalm 28: 6-7
My dad, my husband and I were packing up our
apartment last week in preparation for a massive
move when we ran into a slight problem. Actually,
it was a problem that we had known about all along
but we all were trying to not think about. We own
a huge dresser which is solid wood, very heavy and
very awkward to move. I knew that there was no
way I was going to be of any help. getting that dress-
er down the very steep, narrow stairs of our old
apartment building. ,I also knew that despite their
protests, my husband and father should not attempt
to move it either. I sat on the back of the truck and
asked God for help. Within a few moments, as we

continued to ponder our predicament, three'men
wearing moving company t-shirts walked by. They
clearly had had a little too much to drink, and began
to tell us that if we had wanted an easier time in
moving our apartment we should have hired "ex-
perts". Slightly blown away by the timing of their
arrival, my husband promptly asked them how much
it would cost for them to move one piece of furniture.
Twenty minutes and forty dollars later that beast of
a piece was safely in the back of the truck.
God showed me more in those twenty minutes
than I had learned in days. He used three drunken
movers to remind me that He loves me more then I
can ever imagine, and He relishes showing me that
love by showing up in the "little" things in my life.
I can always trust the ultimate Expert, for He will
never fail me.
