WG studies


creating city


bus service


By Michael Laval

Winter Garden residents
could someday be getting a
lift from the city's own public
transportation system.
The City Commission voted
at last Thursday's meeting in
favor of approving a contract
with Planning Innovations not
to exceed $49,900 to analyze
Winter Garden's transportation
needs and how a shuttle bus
service could best be utilized.
"One of our goals is to help
find transportation for our citi-
zens who need it," said City
Manager Michael Bollhoefer.
"We have senior communities
with citizens who are unable to
drive and lower-income com-
munities with residents who do
not have transportation."
The Lynx bus system, Boll-
hoefer added, currently pro-
vides only minimal service
within Winter Garden, while a
city-operated bus might better


accommodate all residents.
Over the next several weeks,
Planning Innovations, an Or-
lando-based consulting firm,
will collect data in Winter Gar-
den on existing transit service
and traffic circulation, evalu-
ate road conditions, determine
how many citizens might use
a city bus system and estimate
capital, operations and main-
tenance costs. Also, the study
will develop a maximum of
three potential bus routes, in-
cluding new routes and possi-
bly extensions or modifications
of any existing Lynx routes.
In other business, the elected
officials:

located on County Road 535

Garden Theatre preparing
for 1st show, grand opening


The historic Garden
Theatre is reopening its doors
in downtown Winter Garden
for the first time in more
than 40 years with a live
performance of The Musical
of Musicals, The Musical!
Feb. 1-17. This show, by
local professional theater
company Jester Theater, will
kick off the 2008 inaugural
season with its international
hit.
Sponsored by Progress
Energy, The Musical honors
the greatest composers of our
time in a humorous sense.
The show is actually five
musicals rolled into one and
reveals how a simple story
would be turned into a totally
different musical by five
of the greatest composers
of modern musical theater:
Rodgers & Hammerstein,
Stephen Sondheim, Jerry
Herman, Sir Andrew Lloyd
Webber and Kander & Ebb.
' Tickets are $25 ($22 for
students and seniors)."
After this inaugural show,
the theater folks will have less
than two weeks to prepare for
the grand-opening gala Feb.
29.
Davis Gaines, an Orlando
native who rose to fame on


Broadway as the lead in The
Phantom of the Opera, is
scheduled to perform.
Tickets are $229 for a full
evening at the theater. This
includes a reception, pre-
show, dinner featuring Walt
Disney World chefs from
Winter Garden, a locally
produced stage show and
Gaines' performance, a
dessert reception and a "Meet
the Artist" session in which
guests can talk to Gaines.
The locally produced stage
show is Curtain Up!, which
offers a history of the original
theater that stood on the same
grounds.
Theater fans can spend
Saturday attending free
family-friendly events, such
as a movie, musical acts and
possibly some workshops
and classes.
Ticketed shows *continue
Saturday evening ($35) and
Sunday afternoon ($25)
with the stage show, minus
Gaines but featuring a local
performer.
For ticket 'information,
call the Garden Theatre box
office at 407-877-GRDN
(4736). Box office hours are
11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4-6 p.m.
Monday through Friday.


The swimming
operation will move
to its new location in
2-3 weeks.

ByKathyAber

Southwest Aquatics expect-
ed its new facility on the cor-
ner of Warrior and Windermere
roads to be finished this week,
but it is not quite done.
Joy McGinty, owner of SW
Aquatics, told The West Or-
ange Times on Monday there
is still some stucco work that
needs to be completed before
the swimming complex can
obtain its certificate of occu-
pancy from Orange County.
"We're very, very close,"
McGinty said.
The business is currently
operating from its location on
Morton-Jones Road, adjacent
to Gotha Middle School, under
an agreement with the School


Board of Orange County Pub-
lic Schools.
In 2005, OCPS acquired title
to McGinty's property through
eminent domain in order to ex-
pand the Gotha Middle School
campus.
OCPS took immediate pos-
session of 1.5 acres so por-
tables could be relocated there.
As part of the settlement agree-
ment, McGinty received an"
extended two-year, rent-free
possession of the facility to al-
low them time to purchase and
build a new facility. The agree-
ment has been extended twice
and expires Jan. 31.
McGinty said this week that
SW Aquatics has obtained a
lease arrangement with OCPS,
allowing it to use the Gotha
property for the additional few'
weeks.
"OCPS has been generous
enough to give us a little more
time," said McGinty. "We are
grateful they are letting us

Construction workers stack and connect the logs at the Oakland Nature Preserve's new
education center. The fireplace was finished last week.


Nature preserve center


going up 1 log at atime

$100,000 is
still needed for the
education building at -
ONP.


By Amy Quesinberry

The logs are precut and
look like a giant set of Lincoln
Logs. And just like the small
log cabins that kids create af-
ter dumping the wood from
the tall round container, that's
pretty much how the educa-
tion building at the Oakland
Nature Preserve is being built:
one layer of logs at a time.
The 4,000-square-foot cen-
ter is going up just south of the
current temporary office near
the preserve entrance. Any-
one driving by will see ma-
sons working on the fireplace,
builders stacking the exterior
walls and plumbers preparing
the plumbing.
"It's been such a long time
coming," said Tom Rodriguez,
ONP director. "It's larger than
life."
Work started in October
when the land "was cleared,
and construction began in De-
cember. The logs are white
pine from Vermont and were
selected because they are
"farmed" in sustainable for-
ests by the log company.
In-kind work for the center
has been donated by DeW-
itt Excavating Inc., ConTech
Construction LLC and Bright
Future Electric. Other major
donors include Orange Coun-
ty (which gave a $200,000

grant) and the St. Johns River
Water Management District
(which gave a $30,000 grant),
Ginn Clubs and Resorts, Bond
Foundation Inc., local Rotary
clubs and Castle & Cooke
Florida LTD.
When the educatioi center
is finished hopefully by the
end of the year, Rodriguez said
- ONP will offer on-site pro-
grams to the public and to area
schoolchildren. The building
will house a classroom for en-.
vironmental programs and a
museum that will feature the
natural and cultural history of
Central Florida.
Rodriguez is eager to be-
gin coordinating a variety of
learning programs that will be
offered there. He said the pro-
grams will pertain primarily to
environmental education but
will also cover the natural and


cultural history of the area,
such as the way early Florid-
ians used the land and their
lifestyle.
"The Environmental Educa-
tion Center will also serve as
a 'window' to Lake Apopka
and interpret clean-up and.res-
toration of Lake Apopka," he
said.
But to finish the center,
ONP needs approximately
$100,000 more.
In fund-raising campaign
literature that is being dis-
tributed in the community,
ONP says, "We need funding
to furnish the building and to
develop educational displays
that will be interesting and
useful in our new education
programs."

or otherwise disadvantaged
children. Currently, The Gift
of Swimming is conducting
classes for 150 Head Start stu-

State to clean up

1993 petroleum leak

in town of Oakland
By Amy Quesinberry

Back in 1993, a petroleum leak was discovered in the
right-of-way at the southwest corer of Gulley Avenue
and Walker Street in Oakland. State officials were noti-
fied of the incident, and the project has slowly worked its
way up the state's list of priorities.
The town recently advertised for bid proposals from
environmental consultant firms interested in the cleanup
project. Town staff narrowed down the entries to four that
had also provided hold-harmless agreements and were
ready to start.
Representatives from three of the four finalists were at
the Jan. 22 Town Commission meeting, ready to answer
any questions commissioners had. Town staff recom-
mended these three Professional Service Industries,
Shaw Environmental and Terracon Consultants Inc. as
the top choices.
The commission will review the companies' proposals
and make a final decision at the Feb. 12 meeting.
According to Town Manager Maureen Rischitelli, two
1,000-gallon leaded gasoline tanks were removed in 1992

Reader opinions

Letters to the editor


Letter alerts businesses to scam


Last week the West Orange Airport
Authority's (WOAA) bid to take over
the Orlando North Airpark stalled when
developer Scott Mitchell informed the
members that he's not interested in part-
nering with the authority.
We hope this ends the authority's mis-
guided use of its power. The motive for
the attempt to take over two airports in
northwest Orange County was cloudy at
best. The deal to acquire the more south-
ern of the two airports was so weak and
misrepresented that it probably was noth-
ing more than a way to link the northern
airport to West Orange County.
WOAA Chairman Guy Haggard char-
acterized the airports as "donated" when
he made presentations to Orange County,
Apopka, Ocoee and Winter Garden. He
even told the Winter Garden City Com-
mission last May that they would be
operating both the airports by June 1,
just three weeks later. Thankfully, Win-
ter Garden balked after learning that
the deal at the Orlando North Airport
on 441 wasn't worth the paper it was
written on.


Then a special meeting was called in
December for WOAA board members
to learn more about airport plans and
allow them an opportunity to "support"
a land-use change going before the Or-
ange County Commission six days later.
But at that meeting there were no plans
presented because the developer wasn't
available. The board, under encourage-
ment from the chairman and the land-
owner, reluctantly voted to support the
change. But then the land-use request
was postponed at the last minute.
For more than a year now, Haggard
has said some perplexing statements;
and, before he leads the WOAA down
another strange path, we suggest that
members of the board ask the chairman
some questions. Like, why was the board
told that Mitchell wanted to be at the
December meeting if, as Mitchell said
last week, he was not informed about it?
How could he make the claim last year
that the WOAA would be up and running
in three weeks if they didn't have any
binding contracts, appraisals, options or
surveys? We would all like to know.


Editor:
I am writing this letter to inform the West
Orange business community of a scam that is
happening in the West Orange area.
On Friday, Jan. 4, three African-American
women came into my workplace. Having ex-
perience in their field, they separated us by
asking lots of questions. Two women kept my
co-worker busy while the third kept me busy.
We all felt uneasy almost immediately, but we
could not put our hands on any particular thing
that made us feel that way.
We called the Winter Garden Police, and
they did not know of any other similar type
incident that might be happening in our area.
They offered to come back when we were leav-
ing and be here when we went to our cars.
Later in the evening I realized my credit cards
and license were missing and also found they
had charged more than $2,000 between credit
cards and a debit card. Since then we have
learned that a common statistic shows most
women keep their purses in the right hand
lower desk drawer.


Editor:


I think it's great that south Winter Garden is
getting recognized with a "park," but it seems
that what we're really getting are ball fields -
not a park. I don't see how this park serves the
young families in the area. The diagram shows
a playground that looks like an afterthought. It


If money is taken out of your account from
your debit card, it is up to the bank as to when it
will be returned to your account. In my case, it
will take up to 10 days.It seems that businesses
have been lax in checking IDs and signatures
on credit/debit cards.
I feel everyone needs to know this is going
on and hope this will serve to make people
more aware so they do not lose their sense of
security as I have.
Tammy Carson
Winter Garden
(Editor's note: Michelle Gentry of Garden
Kidz in downtown Winter Garden called the
newspaper last week to say she also had been
a victim of the scam described in the above
letter. Two black women in scrubs came
into her store. One distracted her while the
other asked to use the bathroom. After they
left, Gentry discovered that her wallet was
missing and that $700 had been charged at
the Ocoee Wal-Mart on one of her stolen
credit cards.)


looks to be smaller than the concession stand
and has no basketball court for a lone person
to shoot around. It seems the park is geared
toward organized teams, which represent a
fraction of the residents in the area.

Buying cars at wholesale without a dealer's license


By Michael Laval

Car buyers can now shop
locally for wholesale automo-
biles at auction prices without
needing a dealer's license.
Lanham Wholesale, which
opened in December on
West Colonial Drive in front
of Manheim's Florida Auto
Auction, invites the public to
"buy where the dealers buy."
Jim Craig, general manager
at Lanham Wholesale, said
leading dealerships through-
out Central Florida regularly
come to Lanham to buy large,
bulk quantities of pre-owned
vehicles. Lanham's wholesale
division, Craig added, sells
between 450 and 700 cars
and trucks monthly to dealers
nationwide. The company's
retail division provides the
public with the opportunity
to browse the same inventory
for individual sales.
While Lanham Whole-
sale usually has about 300
vehicles in stock each day,
sales'associates can find vir-
tually any car or truck a cus-
tomer desires since the com-
pany obtains its stock from
auto auctions throughout the
Southeastern United States
and, sometimes, directly from
manufacturers.
"We have just about every
make and model available,"
said owner Tony Lanham.
"We have an unlimited in-
ventory with our buying net-
work."
Lanham Wholesale custom-
ers can find vehicles priced
from $6,500 to $70,000 or
more, with mileages ranging
from only 50 miles to 50,000
miles.
S"We have the biggest se-
lection I've ever seen," said
Craig, who boasts more than
20 years of experience in
auto sales. "We service all
the dealerships, so we have to
have all the models."
The advantage of buying
at Lanham Wholesale, Craig
added, is being able to shop
in a no-haggle environment
while choosing from the same

Cuhaci and Peterson
to redesign Ghiradelli
at Lake Buena Vista
Cuhaci and Peterson
Architects have been awarded
a sweet assignment.
The Orlando-based firm
was recently awarded a
contract to redesign the
interior'of the 4,015-square-
foot Ghiradelli Chocolate Co.
store at Lake Buena Vista.
Lonnie Peterson, chairman
of Cuhaci and Peterson
Architects, noted that all 135
professionals employed at his
firm expect to be assigned to
the project.


Peterbrooke to dip
5,000 strawberries
for Valentine's Day
Since chocolate-dipped
strawberries are a favorite
treat on Valentine's Day, Pe-
terbrooke Chocolatier will dip
approximately 5,000 strawber-
ries in each store during the
48-hour period leading up to
Feb. 14. Peterbrooke Choco-
latier recently opened at Win-
ter Garden Village at Fowler
Groves.
Because the dipped berries
must be fresh, Peterbrooke
candy makers in each store will
work day and night to assure
there will be an ample supply
of dark, milk and white choco-
late dipped strawberries.
Peterbrooke Chocolatier
will also offer wide selection
of other Valentine's Day spe-
cialties such as Coco, the choc-
olate bear with a candy heart,
new clear heart-shaped boxed
chocolates, chocolate dipped
apples, heart-shaped chocolate
lollipops, chocolate rose bou-
quets and more.

inventory as dealerships. The
dealers, Craig explained,
purchase wholesale vehicles
from Lanham and re-sell them
at marked-up prices, in addi-
tion to tacking on dealer fees
ranging from $600-$700.
Lanham Wholesale cus-
tomers avoid price mark-ups
and pay a dealer fee of $299,
he said.
The average dealership
mark-up for a $20,000 car,
Craig estimated, is about
$3,000. The amount of sav-
ings at Lanham Wholesale in-
creases with the price tag. Car
buyers can save as much as
$10,000 on more expensive
vehicles, Craig said.
"These cars are priced to
sell," he said. "We're here to
move 600-700 cars a month."
Most vehicles sold at Lan-
ham Wholesale are still under
factory warranty, while Lan-
ham also offers additional
limited and extended warran-
ties.


Lanham Wholesale works
with 24 Central Florida area
banks and credit unions to
help customers finance their
vehicle purchases. The com-
pany also houses its own
service department. While
most dealership service em-
ployees work on commission,
Lanham Wholesale's service
department is paid by salary,
which, Craig said, results in
lower costs for the customer.
Before moving to West
Orange last month, Lanham
started his business in 1995
in East Orlando. He said has
built it one customer at a
time.
"I firmly believe every
person counts and every car
counts," Lanham said. "With
that philosophy in mind, Lan-
ham Wholesale has grown
from selling 20 vehicles a
month to hundreds a month.
"Our success is based
solely on referred and repeat
business," he added.

Osprey Custom Homes keeps top 10 ranking


Osprey Custom Homes rang
in the New Year with its second
consecutive top 10 ranking in
Orlando Business Journal's
annual Book of Lists.
A family-owned and oper-
ated company with roots go-'
ing back more than half a cen-
tury, Osprey Custom Homes
solidified its standing as one
of the area's premier home-
builders by ranking No. 7 on
the 2008 Book of Lists, which
recognized the top 25 custom
and semi-custom builders in
a four-county Central Florida
market.
Osprey placed No. 3 in the
2007 rankings.
The company posted its sec-
ond straight top 10 showing on
the strength of an outstanding
2006 homebuilding campaign
in which it chalked up $27 mil-
lion on 15 home sales, an av-
erage of $1.8 million per sale,
according to builder Anthony


Lightman.
"We can't think of a more
fitting way to usher in the New
Year," said Lightman. "We take
a lot of pride in what we've
been able to accomplish in this
market the past two years."
Over the past two years,
Osprey has recorded 39 home
sales for more than $60 mil-
lion.
"To be ranked among the
top 10 custom homebuilders
in Central Florida is a great
accomplishment, especially
when you think of all the qual-
ity custom builders Central
Florida has to offer," Light-
man added.
Osprey Custom Homes is
currently building in Keene's
Pointe, The Reserve at Bel-
mere, Lake Hancock Reserve
at Independence and Braemar,
an exclusive 49-home "green"
community off Hempel Road
in Gotha.

HUNTING FOR
THE RIGHT HOME
Serious house hunting can leave
you worn out and confused at the end
of the day. It is hard to remember
'which house had the great back yard
and kitchen and which one you ruled
out because of inadequate storage
space. Some of the houses you visited
looked familiar-like maybe you had
seen them before. How can you con-
serve energy and keep it all straight?
The first step is to find a Realtor who
knows the area well and will only show
you homes that meet your criteria and
that you can afford. Next you should
invest in a small note pad in order to
keep a record of the homes you visit.
Note the address, style and exterior
color, as well as something distinctive
about the house that will trigger your
memory. Make a special note if a
house has real possibilities. Jot down
important pluses and minuses of each
property and share this information
with your Realtor. Be sure you have
included the MLS number or.street
address in your notes so the Realtor
knows which house you are referring
to in follow-up conversations. This will
help you to narrow down the houses
so you can focus on your favorites.
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.

Participants can discover tips
on what to plant and where,
when to fertilize, the best ways
to water, how to manage pest
problems and more.
For more information, call
407-654-2732.


Using water efficiently
The city of Winter Garden
Water Conservation Office of-
fers five tips for efficient water
use.
Remember to check your
sprinkler heads .periodically
for leaks. One broken or leak-
ing sprinkler could waste 1,000
gallons or more in less than
one hour.
Before you lather up, in-
stall a low-flow showerhead.
They're easy to install and can
save families more than 500
gallons a week. Watch your
utilities bill for information on
an upcoming free showerhead
exchange.
Turn off the water while
you brush your teeth or shave
and save four gallons a minute.
That's 200 gallons a week for a
family of four.
Choose new water-saving
appliances, like washing ma-
chines that save up to 30 gal-
lons per load. A high-efficiency
washing machine can pay for
itself in less than three years.
As more leaves fall, avoid
using a blower to clear your
yard. Yard waste often ends up
in storm drains, causing prob-
lems. Gather leaves and lawn
clippings to create compost or
get them ready for yard waste
pickup.
The Water Conservation Of-
fice reminds residents that the
amount of water needed to ir-
rigate lessens as temperatures
fall. St. Augustine grass only
needs rain or watering once
every seven to 14 days from
December through February.
Bahia grass needs water even
less often. Residents should
check their sprinkler timer to
make sure they aren't overwa-
tering.
Call 407-654-2732 for a free
assistance visit or for more in-
formation.

American Legion Post 63
has presented a $500 check to
a local disabled veteran who
was injured while serving in
Iraq. Army Sgt. Jose D. Lopez
suffered serious injuries when
his Humvee was struck in a
car-bomb attack in 2005, and
the 20-year-old returned home
with permanent eye damage and
an honorable discharge.
Thanks to a half-million-
dollar check from the Coalition
to Salute America's Heroes to
the national headquarters of the
American Legion, Judson C.
Kuneman, post finance officer,
gave the grant to Lopez during
a ceremony at Post 63, 271 W.
Plant St., Winter Garden.
"It is with sincere thanks that
we present this grant today to
a fellow military veteran who
served our country with honor
and pride," Judson said. "We
present this on behalf of your
fellow veterans and a grateful
nation."
He added: "Post 63 is honored
to deliver this gift to our com-
rade here in Winter Garden. We
can never fully heal all of the
trauma of war, but we can show
our gratitude to those who went
in harm's way for America."
"These grants are just a small
token of appreciation for the
sacrifices made by so many of
America's men and women in
uniform," said Thomas J. Palma,
genera manager of the coali-
tion. "Our coalition was able to
raise a lot of money from car-
ing people, but we do not have
the distribution network of the
American Legion. The Legion
is a well-respected organization
with a presence in communities
across America. The American


I --- -


Legion will do an excellent job
in getting those grants to deserv-
ing veterans."
The two organizations also
teamed up to award grants to
disabled veterans in 2005.
The funds are being divided
into $500 grants and awarded
to veterans of Afghanistan and
Iraq who are rated with disabili-
ties of 30 percent or more. The
American Legion has assumed
all distribution administrative


costs, so 1,000 grants will be
awarded representing the
entire amount of the coalition's
contribution.
When Lopez, now 23, re-
turned to Winter Garden, the
city proclaimed Feb. 19, 2005
as Sgt. Jose Lopez Day. The
City Commission also voted
to make a monetary donation
to purchase toiletries and high-
energy snacks for Lopez's 82nd
Airborne Division.

JIM UU I I -H


25 years celebrated
Jim Cotter of Ocoee celebrates
25 years of service with United
Parcel Service this month. Cotter,
44,'began his career at UPS just
out of high school in 1982 when
he went with a friend who had an
interview with the company.
"Someone suggested that I fill
out an application and do an in-
terview just for the experience,
so I did," Cotter said.
He got the job, but his friend
didn't.
He began working at night as
a loader in the warehouse while
taking classes at the University
of Central Florida during the
day. Graduating seven years
later with a bachelor's degree
in history, he decided to stay on
with the company for a few more
years. Within the year he became
a delivery driver and soon got his
own route.
Last year during the UPS Cen-
tennial Celebration, UPS CEO
Mile Eskew presented Cotter
with a Volume Development
Leadership Award for all the
"sold business" he produced for
the company.
Cotter enjoys co-teaching an
adult Sunday School class and
working with the children at First
Baptist Church Windermere.
He lives in Wesmere with his
wife, Dianna, and his sons, Alex,
10, and Chris, 8.


Ocoee mayor offers to officiate

Ocoee Mayor Scott Vander-

Valentine's Day on Thursday,
Feb. 14. The mayor's services
are available at no charge, re-
gardless of the couple's city
of residence.
Mayor Vandergrift performs
the ceremonies in the lakeside
gazebo in the park near Ocoee
City Hall on North Lakeshore
Drive. The gazebo offers elec-
trical service, is wheelchair
accessible and has seating in
front.
The mayor has prepared cer-
emonies he can use, or couples
can write and say their own
vows. If the couple insists
on money passing hands to
be sure the knot is secured, a
donation to the West Orange
Christian Service Center is
favored by the mayor.
A local educator renewed
her wedding vows several
years ago after 30 years of
marriage. Her husband gave
her a beautiful bouquet of
flowers for the event.

not nervous or afraid anything
would go wrong. We were out-
doors in a beautiful setting in
nature. I was really listening
to the words. It was an expe-
rience that I really enjoyed. It
brought back to me an aware-

what the words really mean.
They aren't just words, but a
commitment to another person
and the marriage."
As a notary public, the may-

'Take the Water Saving Challenge Home'


By the City of Ocoee
Utilities Department

The city of Ocoee's water
conservation slogan for 2008 is
"Take the Water Saving Chal-
lenge Home." Although the
housing market is dwindling,
the population boom in Cen-
tral Florida is not and the
amount of water being pumped
from our aquifer has increased.
The need to conserve water is
greater than ever. The price of
gas and electricity escalates on
a daily basis; if we don't make
a conscious effort to change our
watering habits, the price of
water is also going to increase
sooner or later. Let's do our part
to make it later!
With the growing need to
conserve water, the city of
Ocoee is asking its residents


and businesses to take this
challenge: stop throwing mon-
ey away and start saving water.
Every drop counts!
Our goal for the year is tore-
duce water consumption by 15
percent. In order to reach our
goal, all residents and busi-
nesses in Ocoee need to become
more aware of how they use
their water and take advantage
of opportunities to conserve -
simply by changing some daily
habits.
The city of Ocoee offers free
irrigation audits, workshops,
seminars and classes, all with
water conservation in mind. If
you need help or tips for setting
water conservations goals, call
the City of Ocoee Utilities De-
partment Water Conservation
Division at 407-905-3100, Ext.
9-4009.

The Withers-Maguire
House Museum, located in

plex on Bluford Avenue,

Windermere


Members of Boy Scout Troop 8 accept a donation from Windermere Rotary. Pictured
are (1-r): (in rear) John Crippen, president; Alex Batty; Gregg Batty, Scoutmaster; Todd
Bednarek; David Hall; and (front) Tyler Batty and Paul Bednarek.


The Rotary Club of Windermere made a donation recently in support of the new UCF
Medical School. Pictured are (1-r): Byron Sutton, Rotary president-elect; Norma Sutton,
Lobster Laughter chairperson; Dr. Deborah German, guest speaker and dean of the
College of Medicine at UCF; and John Crippen, Rotary president.


Rotarians learn
The Rotary Club of
Windermere was informed
and entertained recently by
guest speaker Dr. Deborah C.
German, M.D., dean of the
College of Medicine at the
University of Central Florida.
She described the challenges
and planning required in order
for the new school to be up
and running when classes start
in fall of 2009.
German showed PowerPoint
pictures of the new five-story
medical building now under
construction at the Lake Nana
Campus and discussed the
employment and economic
impact the college will provide
to the new "medical city" in
east Orange County.


about new UCF Medical School


She also spoke of the
projected indebtedness -
$145,000 of a 2007 medical
school graduate, but the tuition
and extra expenses at the UCF
complex will make it one of
the least expensive medical
schools in the country.
The club presented German
with a $10,000 donation,
which was part of the proceeds
of last fall's Lobster Laughter:
Lend a Hand charity fund-
raiser.
German's impressive
resume starts with her medical
career at Harvard Medical
School, the University of
Rochester, Duke University
and Vanderbilt University. She
led Saint Thomas Hospital in


Nashville as president and
CEO and chief academic
officer of its health services.
These positions, along with
numerous others, qualify her
for the leadership of the new
UCF Medical School.
She has two daughters and
ran in her first marathon in
2001.
Also joining the Rotarians
for breakfast were members
of Boy Scout Troop 8. They
were presented with a check
for $975 to help replace some
damaged tents.
The club meets Tuesday
morning at the Windermere
Town Hall. For more
information, call Coert
Voorhees at 407-876-6897.

Oakland


Oakland Mayor Kathy Stark (far left) and Police Chief Tim Driscoll (far right) congratulate,
from left, Sgt. Wesner Osselyn (Officer of the Quarter), Peter Graham (Reserve Officer
of the Year) and Detective Gina Adams (Officer of the Year) at last week's Town Com-
mission meeting.


Oakland PD honors top officers


By Amy Quesinberry

Oakland Police Chief Tim
Driscoll has a tradition of rec-
ognizing the department's top
officers of theyear. He honored
three at the Jan. 22 Oakland
Town Commission meeting.
Sgt. Wesner Osselyn was
named Officer of the 4th
Quarter 2007 for his work to
reinforce strong relationships
between the community and
the Oakland Police Depart-
ment. According to the cer-
tificate he received, he worked
diligently on the Neighborhood
Watch Program with residents
at Johns Landing and attended
several homeowners associa-
tion meetings "to try to gain
enough support for this gated
community to meet minimum
requirements to officially or-
ganize a true Neighborhood
Watch Program."
Osselyn utilized his CIT tech-
niques to diffuse what could
have been an extremely volatile
situation involving a dispute
with an individual armed with
a knife who had been diagnosed
as bipolar. The sergeant talked
the suspect into going to an or-
ganization for victims in crisis
so he could be properly treated
instead of being taken to jail.
"Some time later," the award
read, "this individual offered
their indebtedness by express-
ing personally to Sgt. Osselyn
their gratitude for understand-
ing their needs."
Osselyn was also nominated
by the police department's CIT
coordinator to be recognized
at the annual CIT banquet in
February for his actions in this
case.
Officer Peter Graham, who
has been with the department
since June 1999, was named
Reserve Officer of the Year
2007. During his tenure with
the department, he has assisted

Construction has begun on
a new education center, and
ONP is offering this as a way
to raise funds for the facility.

than 100 are available. Class-
room chairs are available at
$75 each. Honor forest trees

Detective Gina Adams was
named Officer of the Year
2007 for her efforts to inves-
tigate crime and bring justice
for victims of crime within the
town of Oakland.
Her certificate read, "Detec-
tive Adams is committed to ex-
cellence and serves many more
functions than her job descrip-
tion identifies."
At the beginning of the year,
Adams helped organize vital
elements of the newly devel-
oped orientation program for
recently hired officers. Having
trained many of the officers
at the department today, she
not only assumes the role of a
field .training officer, but she
also regularly trains officers
on the department's records
management system and basic
computer skills.
"Throughout the year, she
has offered roll-call training
on topics of evidence collec-

build strong bonds with our
youth while providing alter-

a Friday evening," said Chief
Driscoll.

The Oakland Nature Preserve
is on the lookout for GirPScouts
and Boy Scouts who would like
to volunteer at ONP. The pre-

badge and girls working on
their Bronze, Silver and Gold
awards.
Many opportunities exist for
completing a project that would
benefit the community and ONP

and charge burglary and theft
suspects that had been evading
police in several jurisdictions,"
according to her award.
The chief said Adams has
consistently demonstrated an
ability to multitask and take
on much more responsibility
than the average officer by also
conducting background inves-
tigations, mediating criminal
and civil cases and serving as
the department's representative
to CIT and the Sex Offenders
Task Force.
Because she goes "above
and beyond the call of duty,"
Driscoll said, "both citizens
and officers are better served
because of Detective Adams'
efforts."

She said a layer of clayey fine
sand extends 18-20 feet below the
surface and might have contained
the petroleum before it seeped into
the water table. This is why the
DEP placed it lower on the list of
priorities, she said.
Consultants will drill into the
soil and check it and the water and
determine if there's a leak plume
and where it has seeped. They will
then report their findings to DEP,

other elite athletes are training
at the National Training Center
(NTC) in Clermont with the
hopes of earning a spot on the
U.S. Olympic Triathlon Team.
Among the Olympic-eligible
athletes attending the camp are
Hunter Kemper (Longwood),
Sara McLarty (DeLand), Sara
Haskins (St. Louis), Jasmine
Oeinck (Littleton, Colo.), Brian
Fleischmann (Jacksonville),
Tim O'Donnell (Shavertown,
Pa.), Joe Umphenour (Bellevue,
Wash:), Rebecca Wassner (New
Yotk City), Julie Ertel (Irvine,
Calif.) and Mark Fretta (Spo-
kane, Wash.). The team is led
bly National Team Coach Cliff
English.
"The support we have gotten


here at the NTC has been great,"
English said. "The athletes are
getting in great training sessions
and we're enjoying the weather
and facilities."
The triathlon season is just
gearing up and the athletes will
compete in the U.S. Olympic Tri-
als in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on April
19. The top man and woman at
the race will secure a spot on the
team, joining Jarrod Shoemaker
(Sudbury, Mass.) and LauraBen-
nett (North Palm Beach). The last
two spots (one man, one woman)
will be determined after the Hy-
Vee Triathlon in Des Moines,
Iowa on June 22.
The camp at the NTC will end
Feb. 1 and the athletes will then
head back to Colorado Springs,
Colo., home of the U.S. Olympic
Training Center. In 2004, the U.S.

Ocoee entered the district
tournament as the No. 1 seed
and now advances to the state
regional tournament with a
20-1-3 overall record. The
Knights host Vero Beach High
on Thursday night at 7 p.m. for


the regional opener.
Goalie Kenil Baker had 5
saves against Olympia to record
his 10th shutout of the season.
Olympia controlled the time of
possession and continually at-
tacked, taking several shots on
goal. Titan goalie Jerry Hatsady
and defenders Brad Smith, John
Holt-Daintry, Tyson Pryor and
Aron Hotalen also did a great
job of shutting down the high-
powered Ocoee offense.
With a minute remaining and
the game still scoreless, Ocoee


went on the offense for a final
charge and drew a foul against
Olympia on a header attempt.
The foul set up Rosas' direct
kick just outside the corner
of the 18-yard box. Despite
a 5-man Olympia wall of de-
fenders, Rosas' kick sailed over
the far-left Titan and bent down
and into the right corer of the
net.
As district runner-up, Olym-
pia also advances to the re-
gional playoffs and will play
at Melbourne at 7 p.m.

West Orange High football
players will meet their new
head coach this week. School
administrators named Chip Pe-
tree last week as the succes-
sor of Tim Smith, who retired
last fall after 17 years as head
coach.
Petree, who has coached the
last 18 years in North Caroli-
na, was expected to introduce
himself to Warrior players this
week.
"I am excited about the chal-
lenges that lie ahead at WOHS
and about becoming part of the
West Orange community,"
Petree told The West Orange
Times.
Athletic Director John Bos-
ton said Petree's personality
immediately won him over.
"He just had a charisma, a
spark about him," Boston re-
called.
Petree has had great success
as head coach at West Forsyth
High School in Clemmons,
N.C. He took over the head-
coaching job in 2005 after
joining West Forsyth in 2002
as the assistant head coach and
defensive coordinator. Upon
taking the helm, Petree led his
team to back-to-back 4A con-
ference championships.
During his tenure, West For-


syth earned four straight play-
off appearances and fielded
the conference's top-ranked
defense. Petree's duties also
included serving as strength
and conditioning coordinator,
operating youth football camps
and managing all football fund-
raising efforts.
Petree feels his experience
has prepared him well for the
WOHS job, and he and his
family like what they see in
West Orange.
"My choice to pursue the
job at West Orange stemmed
from the fact that the facility
is great, the community offers
everything that my family
and I were hoping for and the
program potential at WOHS
is exactly what a coach looks
for," Petree said. "As a father
and husband, theWest Orange
community is picture perfect


for raising a family."
Petree and his wife, Traci,
have a 13-year-old son and a
7-year-old daughter.
Prior to arriving at West For-
syth, Petree's first head coach-
ing job came at West Stokes
High in King, N.C. He also
served as defensive coordina-
tor at Richmond Senior High
in Rockingham, N.C., from
2001-02 and as a defensive
coach at five different North
Carolina high schools between
1992-1998.
Petree first coached as
a graduate assistant from
1990-92 at East Carolina
University, where he earned
a master's degree in physical
education. He graduated with
a bachelor's degree from High
Point University.
From a football standpoint,
Petree said he will use an ag-
gressive, 8-man defensive
front. Offensively, Petree
plans to incorporate a mul-
tiple I-formation system with
various shotgun and spread
formations.
"My plan is to build a strong
foundation in the classroom,
in the weight room and play
sound, fundamental football,"
Petree said. "I am looking for-
ward to building a program
that our community will be
energized by and proud of."

Olympia basketball shoots down unbeaten Winter Park


Last week's thrilling over-
time victory on the road
over a then-unbeaten Win-
ter Park team helped propel
the Olympia High varsity

the postseason with great
momentum.
The Titans enter this final
week of the regular season
with a 20-2 record. The Ti-
tans will begin the district


tournament as the No. 1

district play. With a game
set for Tuesday, Jan. 29, at

the Metro Conference title.
In last week's showdown,
Olympia's 91-82 overtime

Class 6A. Dexter Fields led
the Titans with 27 points,
followed by Martell Buie

Jason Clinger, a psychological specialist with the lorida Department orfcorrections, is
a co-chair of the Central Florida Officer Benefit Golf Tournament to be held at Orange
County National Golf Center. He is holding the state specialty tag recognizing the impor-
tance of corrections employees.

Corrections Foundation sponsoring spring
golf tournament at Orange County National


Orange County National Golf
Center in Winter Garden will be
the site of the Corrections Foun-
dation's Central Florida Officer
Benefit Golf Tournament on
Friday, May 9, and businesses
are needed as sponsors for this
worthy cause.
The Corrections Founda-
tion supports the personnel,
programs and services of the
Florida Department of Correc-
tions, especially by providing
financial assistance to employ-
ees experiencing crises in their
lives.
For example, the homes and
property of Corrections person-
nel in Florida were severely
damaged by 2004 and 2005
hurricane seasons, and Cor-
rections employees, through
the foundation, pulled together
to raise money and send food,
clothing, water, tarps and other
items needed to their fellow em-
ployees at a cost of $113,377.
Employees going through
extensive cancer treatment, re-
covering from a critical illness,
suffering severe injuries in auto
accidents and other family emer-
gencies are also beneficiaries of
foundation funds through the
Employee Assistance Program,
which has given back more than
$2.1 million to DC employees
in need since 1999.
"For more than 50 years, I
have worked with the brave
men and women of the Florida
Department of Corrections, and
I am proud of their professional-
ism and the sacrifices they make
to ensure public safety in Flori-
da," said Louie L. Wainwright,

More restaurants open at

WG Village at Fowler Groves


By Mary Anne Swickerath
The Winter Garden Village
at Fowler Groves continues to
draw lunchtime crowds. Last
week, LongHorn Steakhouse
opened and invited community
leaders and business people to
a family-and-friends celebra-
tion. The new restaurant, locat-
ed at 3118 Daniels Road, held
a fund-raiser for S.T.A.R.S.,
the West Orange County proj-
ect that provides back packs
filled with school supplies for
local students in need.'
"We are proud to be a part
of this community and feel
very honored to continue to
support local charities, such
as the support we were able to
lend to S.T.A.R.S.," said Dar-
ryl Baer, managing partner for
the Winter Garden LongHorn..
"Our staff has worked hard to
create a warm and inviting at-
mosphere for the Winter Gar-
den community, and we look
forward to serving them."
This casual-dining, full-ser-
vice restaurant serves steaks,
salmon, shrimp, chicken, ribs
and prime rib, along with sal-
ads and soups, and has already
proved to be popular with the
locals.
First Watch, which serves
breakfast and lunch, has been
busy since opening at the end
of last year, and 5 Guys Burg-
ers has drawn long lines of
customers.
Recent openings at the Vil-
lage include Panda Express
serving Americanized Asian
fast food and Urban Flats,
which specializes in flat breads,
wraps, soups and salads and
features a large bar area.
These eateries join Chick-
fil-A, Coldstone Creamery,
Macaroni Grill, McDonald's,
Peterbrooke Chocolatier,


Planet Smoothie, Quizno's,
Starbuck's and UNO Chicago
Grill.
Opening soon will be
Mimi's Caf6 and Chili's. A


spring opening is planned for
Bonefish Grill, a dinner-only
seafood restaurant that has a
popular outlet on Sand Lake
Road, and Panera Bread..


Turkey tomato soup is a late-winter comfort


By Mary Anne Swickerath

Homemade soup is a smart
idea during the off-and-on cold
weather and during the height
of the cold-and-flu season. The
following recipe for turkey to-
mato soup will give you the
edge in staying well and feel-
ing good. It comes from the
American Institute for Cancer
Research, which sends news-
papers, monthly information
and recipes on healthy living
and eating.
This recipe combines veg-
etables, barley and lean meat
along with herbs and a pinch
of red pepper.

Texas Roadhouse to
S open in Ocoee
Ocoee is getting a new steak-
house. Texas Roadhouse, which
has more than 270 locations in
44 states, will hold a ribbon-
cutting ceremony with Mayor
Scott Vandergrift this Monday,
Feb. 4, at 3:15 p.m. at 1150
Blackwood Ave., across from
Health Central medical center.
The new restaurant is adding
160 jobs to the community.
Local off-duty police and
firefighters were invited to
sample the menu free during
the training period for the new
cooks, meat cutters and other
staff before the opening of the
restaurant.
In addition to donating meals,
,the restaurant will host invita-
tion-only pre-opening events
and raise money for the Health
Central Foundation School
Nurse Program.
"This foundation sponsors
the Orange County school
nurses year-round," said John
Titeleus, managing partner of
Texas Roadhouse. "Without it'
our schools and the local com-
munity would have to raise
money on their own to afford
a school nurse. We are proud
to partner with this organization
and will continue to support it
and other local agencies."
The restaurant will officially
begin serving its steaks and ribs
Monday from 4-10 p.m. in what
it describes as a family-friendly
atmosphere.

The best restaurant meal I've
had in a long time was the one I
had at K Restaurant Wine Bar at
2401 Edgewater Drive in Col-
lege Park last Thursday. (Every
once in a while I do get out of
West Orange County.)
The restaurant, owned by
Kevin Fonzo, is a longtime
landmark in College Park, and
the quality of its food remains
high and the ambience warm
and friendly. Executive Chef
Scott Copeland cooks up such
fresh and creative starters, sal-
ads and entrees, I found it diffi-
cult to narrow my choices. But I
heartily recommend the Maple
Leaf Farm Duck Breast with
Palmetto Creek Farm Ham,
Parmesan, Cauliflower and Pi-
not Noir Sauce and a wonderful
fish dish, Pacific Escolar with
Bamboo Rice, Pickled Napa
Cabbage and Sesame-Wasabi
Vinaigrette.
This upscale food carries up-
scale prices, and, for my money,
worth every bit.

The chicken pesto panini is a popular item at House Blend Cafe in Ocoee.

House Blend Cafe isn't just about the food


The almost
3-year-old eatery
in Ocoee gives all
of its net profits to
support local and
international projects
and plans a World
Music Jam on Feb.
8 and 9 to raise
funds for its ongoing
charity work.

By Mary Anne Swickerath

House Blend Caf6 in Ocoee
is a restaurant with a mission -
and the mission is not to rack
up profits for its investors. Its
mission is to sell good food and
tasty coffees, offer free wi-fi to
its customers and use 100 per-
cent of its net profits to help
those in need, both locally and
in Third World countries.
The caf6, located at the cor-
ner of West Colonial Drive and
Bluford Avenue, is also dedi-
cated to bringing people togeth-
er. It's the only restaurant I've
ever been in that has this type
of message on the front of its
menu: "House Blend Caf6 is all
about loving people. We want to
be a community where people
feel as welcome as if they were
in their own home. We want to
blend with people by doing life
together and meeting .commu-
nity needs in any way that we
possibly can.. We want people
to enjoy great food, great drink
and great company."


According to General Man-
ager Josh Taylor, the caf6 is
concerned about people, not
dollars and believes "com-
munity belongs together and
we need to get the focus off of
ourselves and onto others."
The caf6, which will cel-
ebrate its third anniversary in
February, is open six days a
week (only closing on Sunday)
and serves breakfast, lunch and
dinner.
Assistant Manager Jake Ram-
sey said that, currently, House
Blend Caf6's busiest time is
at lunch, but plans are in the
works to add live music both
Friday and Saturday nights to
draw more folks in for dinner.
"There will be all kinds of
music," said Ramsey, "but all
of it will be family-friendly."
But the biggest event planned
at the cafe is the World Music
Jam set for Friday, Feb. 8, and
Saturday, Feb. 9: The jam will
feature performances by local
and national musicians, along
with artists and photographers
offering their work for sale.
There will also be a silent auc-
tion, and donations are needed
from individuals and busi-
nesses.
The funds raised from the
jam will be used for three home
renovations planned on Orange
Blossom Trail for families in
need. Caf6 volunteers also re-
cently fixed up a home for a.
widow who lives on County
Road 535, and funds were do-
nated for a project to build a
well in the Dominican Republic
in association with Westpointe


Fellowship Church.
The young staff at House
Blend Caf6 are friendly and
work hard to please the custom-
ers. Breakfast (beginning at 6
a.m. Monday through Friday)
is highlighted by freshly made
waffles the most popular
being the Waffilicious (topped
with peanut butter, apples,
bananas, grape halves and
chopped pecans and drizzled
with honey). Also offered early
in the day are breakfast burri-
tos, frittatas, bagels, muffins
and homemade granola, served
with the caff's delicious coffees
(expressos, cappuccinos, lattes
among a large selection).
Ramsey explained the coffee
is all fair trade coffee from a
wide variety of sources.
Lunch and dinner offer-
ings include hot-grilled panini
sandwiches, salads, red beans
and rice, chicken burritos and
soups. A popular and unusual
item is the Black Forest Strudel,
a baked phyllo-dough pocket
stuffed with Black-Forest ham,
roasted pears, smoked gouda
cheese and caramelized red on-
ions served over mixed greens
and drizzled with a balsamic
glaze.
A children's menu lists maca-
roni and cheese, grilled cheese
panini and peanut-butter-and-
jelly panini.
So come to House Bland
Caf6, have a coffee and a panini
and feel good about where your
money ends up.

Martin Luther King parade
Citrus Elementary students
participated in the annual Mar-
tin Luther King Jr. Parade. Their
theme was "Peace Around the
World." The students were
joined by a visiting group of
Brazilian students who have
been a part of the Citrus family
for the past month.


Special guest
MetroWest Elementary stu-
dents in Suzan Kurdak's and
Ruthann Paul-Suess' classes
had a special guest recently.
Army Specialist Wesley Mert-
ing, who is stationed in Iraq
and is now in Hawaii on leave,
visited the school with his fam-
ily and spent half a day greet-
ing students, faculty and staff
and receiving gifts, cards, let-
ters and a banner.
Last year Paul-Suess and
Kurdak got in touch with Mert-
ing via his aunt. The teachers,


The Brazilians were hosted
by different classes, and the
students were able to experi-
ence each other's culture first-
hand. In the parade the children
wore clothing reflective of their
cultures and ethnic heritages.
CES was awarded first place
again this year. An even larger
turnout is hoped for next year.


Suess' students and Kurdak's
Girl Scout troop then collected
more than 50 boxes of sup-
plies for his unit. The down-
town law firm where Merting's
aunt works mailed the boxes
free of charge to Iraq.
The students also sent e-
cards and 'snail-mail' cards
and were quite excited to find
out that Merting would be com-
ing home for the holidays and
would visit them.
The students are now in the
process of making a scrapbook
for Merting.

Miss OHS Pageant
On Jan. 19 Ocoee High held
its first Miss Ocoee High School
Pageant. It was open to juniors
and seniors.
The 14 contestants worked
hard to find a relative, teacher,
church or business to sponsor
them. Each had a short
interview the. morning of the
pageant with each of the three
judges. This counted one third
of their score. Another third


came the night of the pageant
when they spoken in front of the
audience about their sponsor.
The judges scored the girls
on body language, clarity of
speech, poise, appearance
and the length of their speech.
After the public speaking
portion, the girls changed into
evening gowns and walked on
stage. This part counted for the
final third of their score. All girls
did a great job of presenting


themselves and speaking,
highly of their sponsor.
The contestants were Ashley
McCoy, Lindsay Holzworth,
Ashley Carter, Janet Randolph,
Brittany Brown, Brianna Jones,
Wymise Clerzeau, Ernante
Racine, Shenae Garcia,
Jessica Leno, Ja'Nae Scott,
Sarah Mwamba, Javecia
Colston and Laura Cook.
The girls voted on Miss
Congeniality, which was


awarded to Jones. The girls
submitted a photo to be
part of the Most Photogenic
competition, and Carter won.
Based on the final scores, the
second runner-up was Leno,
and the first runner-up was
Carter. McCoy was the winner
and the first Miss OHS.
A big thank-you goes to all of
the contestants, sponsors and
the many family and friends
who attended the pageant.

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


"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not
let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
John 14:27

* It seems these days with all the threats of war,
immorality, rising cost of gas, food, drugs, med-
ical care, etc. that we lose sight of the fact that
God is always in control. The Bible teaches that
we already possess God's peace.
Do you have doubts about your future? Just
take a look at your past. In Matt. 1: 1-17 the Holy
Spirit is making a point. Matthew gives us a
picture of Jesus' lineage. It reads of a not-so-
great grandparent list. If this had been our lin-
eage, most of us would prefer it not be told! But
the Holy Spirit wants us to see that the common
bond between the individuals on this list was a
promise...a promise from heaven that God would
use these people to send His Son.
Why does God give us a testament filled with
blunders and stumbles of His people? Because
He knows we will stumble, fret, and worry. Be-

cause He wants us to know that when the world
goes wild. He stays calm. Want proof? Read the
last name on the list! In spite of all the slips and
blunders, Jesus, the blessed Savior, the last name
on the list, was the first one promised. The fam-
ine couldn't starve God's promise, four hundred
years of Egyptian slavery couldn't oppress God's
promise, wilderness wandering couldn't lose
God's promise, Babylonian captivity couldn't
stop God's promise. The promise of the Messiah
threads its way through forty-two generations of
"stuff" to bring us a King, just as promised!
God keeps His promise. Sometimes we just
need to look for ourselves. In the manger, He
was there, in the tomb. He was gone! He is alive,
His promises still hold. The engineer has not
abandoned the train. Nuclear war is no threat to
God. A yo-yo econorgy does not intimidate the
heavens and deranged men have never derailed
the plan. God did and does keep His promises.
Be of good cheer, for God is always near.
From the believers at First Baptist Winter Garden.

Registrars honored
Dr. Jenny Reeves, area superintendent of the Southwest Learning Community, hosted
a 'Penguin Party' at Millennia Elementary to honor the registrars of the SWLC. They
had shown the dedication of the penguin during FTE time earlier this school year. Their
persistence and commitment has paid off for the schools in the SWLC, and their work is
appreciated very much.
