Ocoee plans to use

red-light cameras


The city will
ask for proposals
from businesses that
install and monitor
these cameras at busy
intersections.

By Mary Anne Swickerath
If the city of Ocoee has its
way, red-light runners at its in-
tersections will be videotaped,
photographed and fined. Last
week, the Ocoee City Com-
mission directed staff to ad-
vertise for proposals from
businesses that install and
monitor red-light cameras for
municipalities.
"I've been pushing for this
for a long time," said Mayor
Scott Vandergrift. "This is just
the beginning of ensuring the
safety of our city."
Ocoee Police Officer Brad
Dreasher made a presentation
at last week's commission
meeting concerning the law
enforcement point of view on
red light cameras. He pointed
out that New York City in-
stalled these cameras in 1994
and since then violations have
been reduced by 73 percent,
along with a 35 percent reduc-
tion in fatalities due to the run-
ning of red lights. These cam-
eras, he explained, are now
used in 26 states and in more
than 275 cities, including Apo-
pka, where they were put into
use last October.
The companies that install
these cameras also moni-
tor them and send results of
violations to the local police
department. The mailed cita-
tions sent to violators include
photographs of the cars run-
ning the lights and a Web site
where videos of the violations
are available.
The commission voted
unanimously to start the pro-
cess to have the red-light cam-
eras used within the city.
"I think this is great," added
Commissioner Joel Keller,


who said the cameras would
improve traffic safety, help
fight crime and pay for them-
selves through the fines col-
lected by the city.
City Manager Rob Frank
advised the commission that
there are some legal questions
involved with these cameras
and that the State Legislature
is expected to pass legislation
outlining how they can be used.
Frank said it would be a good
idea for the city to go ahead
and hire a company and enact
an ordinance that outlines a fee
structure so that Ocoee's ordi-
nance would be grandfathered
in. The state may pass legisla-
tion that would send the fees
to the state unless the city had
already acted on its own ordi-
nance, which will be brought
back to the commission for a
vote.
He also said the city might
be able to piggyback on Apop-
ka's and the county's contract
with their provider.
The commission appointed
Commissioner Rusty John-
son as its representative on
the committee to choose the
company that would install the
cameras in Ocoee.
In other business, the elect-
ed officials:
awarded a contract to
Southern Site Works Inc. for
the construction of a traf-
fic signal at the intersection
of Ocoee-Apopka and West
roads. The city is paying for
the traffic signal, and Orange
County is funding the con-
struction of the temporary re-
alignment of West Road. A de-
veloper at that corner will pay
the city for the design, permit-
ting and construction of turn
lanes at this intersection.
approved the preliminary
and final site plan for the con-
struction of West RV and Boat
Storage on 9.85 acres on the
west side of Ocoee-Apopka
Road, across from the West
Orange Girls Club complex.

Ocoee to buy building
for new police station

By Mary Anne Swickerath

After going back and forth on whether to build a new
police station or buy an existing building, the Ocoee City
Commission has settled on purchasing an office complex
at 646 Ocoee Commerce Parkway for $4 million. The
commission, at its meeting last week, approved financing
terms for the purchase of the property, which is the for-
mer State Farm insurance claim center just south of West
Colonial Drive near the intersection of Bluford Avenue
and Old Winter Garden Road.
City Manager Rob Frank told the elected officials the
closing on the property is expected to take place this
week.
Finance Director Wanda Horton reported to the com-
mission that the city has secured a 15-year fixed-rate loan

ONP shows appreciation


Photo by Zach Bailey
On Saturday, Oakland Nature Preserve President Jim Thomas gave ONP board mem-
bers a tour of the Environmental Education Center as construction progresses.
q q


The Oakland Nature
Preserve held a special event
Saturday to say thanks to
members of the community
who have supported the
preserve. It was also a great
opportunity for the public
to tour the Environmental
Education Center,
which is currently under
construction.
The day began with a
tree planting in honor of the
late George Bailey, owner
of The West Orange Times.
His continuing support of
the Friends of Lake Apopka
and the Oakland Nature
Preserve by providing
communication through the
newspaper was instrumental
in the success of both of these
organizations, said the ONP
board. The Bailey family,
which continues to be active
supporters of these groups,


was present at the ceremony.
The construction of the
Environmental Education
Center is moving at a rapid
pace, and many visitors took
a guided tour through the
building. When complete, the
center will house a classroom,
museum and administrative
office.
The logs for the walls are
up, the trusses for the roof are
in place, and the work on the
porch will start next week.
ONP President Jim Thomas
offered a guided "nature
creep" through the preserve
trails so guests could explore
the changing season.
More then 100 individuals
attended the event and
enjoyed a picnic under the
trees. Live music for the
day was provided by John
Starkovich, advisory board
member.

Hit-and-run
accident
The Ocoee Police Depart-
ment is seeking information
on a hit-and-run accident that
took place at the intersection
of Palm Drive and Ocoee-
Apopka Road (just north of
Silver Star Road) on Satur-
day, Feb. 2, around noon.
A white pickup truck ran
over a woman on a motor-
cycle, causing her extensive
injuries. The driver of the
truck then fled the scene.
Anyone who may have seen
this accident or anyone who
may have any information
about this accident is asked
to call the Ocoee Police De-
partment at 407-9053160.

Man hit by truck
On Saturday, Feb. 9, at ap-
proximately 2 a.m., Ocoee
police officers responded, to
the intersection of West Sil-
ver Star Road and West Circle
Key Drive in reference to a
hit-and-run crash involving a
vehicle and a pedestrian.
A Hispanic man, approxi-
mately 35 years of age, was
found lying on Silver Star
Road unconscious. The
preliminary investigation
suggested that the victim
was possibly walking on or
crossing the roadway when
an older-model red pickup
truck traveling east of Silver
Star Road struck him. The ve-
hicle then fled the scene of
the crash, and the victim was
transported to the Orlando
Regional Medical Center
with serious injuries.
The crash is being inves-
tigated by the Ocoee Police
Department Traffic Division
as a possible traffic homicide
due to the seriousness of the
victim's injuries. The victim's
name is being withheld until
his family can be notified.
Anyone with informa-
tion about this crime is
encouraged to contact the
Ocoee Police Department at
407-905-3160 or Crimeline
at 407-423-TIPS.

Traffic crash
According to the Ocoee
Police Department, on Mon-
day, Feb. 4, at approximately
5 p.m., a Toyota pickup truck
driven by an adult male was


attempting to back out of a
parking space in front of the
CVS store at 1612 E. Silver
Star. Road. The vehicle struck
an elderly woman who had
walked behind the vehicle
while crossing the parking
lot. The vehicle operator
stopped to assist the 87-year-
old woman. The Ocoee Po-
lice and Fire departments
responded, and the victim
was transported to Orlando
Regional Medical Center,
where she died.
There were no other people
or vehicles involved.
The victim has been identi-
fied as Evelyn Furtick Walsh,
born Sept. 24,1920. The vic-
tim's family members have
been notified.
The Ocoee Police Depart-
ment is conducting an inves-
tigation and has not released
the identity of the driver of
the truck.
Anyone who may have new
information or who possibly
witnessed the crash is asked to
contact the Ocoee Police De-
partment at 407-905-3160.

HFUW assuming leadership of

Earned Income Tax Credit Program


Heart of Florida United Way
(HFUW) has assumed leader-
ship of the Earned Income Tax
Credit Program (EITC), which
is being promoted locally as Ex-
traCredit.
Established in 1975 by the
Federal Government, EITC is
credited with lifting more people
out of poverty than any other fed-
eral aid program.
Locally, the Orlando Regional
Chamber of Commerce and a
group of partners that included
Untied Way 2-1-1 began promot-
ing this economic opportunity in
Central Florida just three years
ago.
With an estimated one-in-four
Central Floridians eligible to re-
ceive tax credits, the economic
impact on individual lives and on
the community is tremendous.
HFUW will continue to target
low income working families in
Orange, Osceola and Seminole
counties. These families will
have the opportunity to claim up
to $4,716 in tax credits (retroac-
tive up to three years) they may
qualify for while also giving a
boost to the local economy.
According to the Internal Rev-
enue Service, an estimated $100
million in EITC funds went
unclaimed last year in Central
Florida, including' $32 million
in Orange County alone. The
primary reason has been lack
of awareness about the program
benefits among employers and
employees.
To address this, HFUW is mo-
bilizing resources to educate the
business community as well as
potential recipients. Information
sessions called "Refund Round-
ups" have been established for
employers to see how they can
help their employees take advan-
tage of this program.
In addition, more than 30 Vol-
unteer Income tax Assistance
(VITA) sites have been estab-
lished throughout the region for
low income residents to take ad-
vantage of free tax preparation
and to find out if they quality for'
tax credit.
"This is such a critical pro-
gram for low income working
families in our community and
an effective way for employers
to give their employees a raise
at no cost to the organization,"
said Robert H. Brown, president/
CEO of HFUW. "When the origi-
1P


nal three-year funding agreement
with the chamber ended, we felt
strongly that this important pro-
gram fit well with the work that
United Way is already doing -
especially with the calls that we
receive regularly through 2-1-1.
"Thirty-nine percent of the
calls that come into this resource
and referral line have to do with
economic crises, such as the in-
ability to pay rent, utilities, mort-
gages or food."
Among other EITC qualify-
ing factors, an employee's in-
come cannot exceed $12,590


($14,590 if married and filing
jointly) if there is no qualifying
child; $33,241 ($35,241 if mar-
ried and filing jointly) if there is
one qualifying child; and $37,783
(if married and filing jointly) if
there is more than one qualify-
ing child.
Businesses interested in learn-
ing more about the "Refund
Roundup" sessions should con-
tact Brittany Richards, EITC
manager, at 407-849-2364. For
general information about the
program, visit www.hfuw.org,

Benefit to help

Danny Williford

New Hope Love of God Church in Winter Gar-
den is holding a benefit sing Saturday, Feb. 23, at 7
p.m. to benefit the family of Danny Williford. The
32-year-old woke up two weeks ago paralyzed from
the waist down, and an MRI revealed a large mass
on his spine.
Although the tumor was benign, doctors told Wil-
liford that he probably would never walk again. Wil-
liford, however, wasn't going to accept that and was
soon up on his feet. He is now beginning to walk with
the aid of a walker and is expected to come home this
weekend.
Williford is the son of Junior and Joyce Williford
and plays the bass guitar in their group. He is married
with four young children.
The family is in need of financial assistance, and this
benefit sing will help the Willifords pay their bills.
The community is invited to attend. The church is at
643 Coke Ave., and Charles "Buddy" Stephens is the
pastor. For more information on the event or to help
the Williford family, call 407-656-1284.


OPD seeks volunteers
The Ocoee Police Department is
looking for a few good people for
a new volunteer program. Those
who can spare a few hours a week
to assist with finger printing, fil-
ing reports and other important
jobs will be trained in the areas
they will be working in. Interested -
people can contact Sgt. Ken Fisher
at the Ocoee Police Department at
407-905-3160, Ext. 9-3315.

Politics in Winter Garden sink to a new low


When Winter Garden mayoral can-
didate John Rees called a meeting of
his supporters last week he told them
to bring along anyone. After all, May-
or Jack Quesinberry was to announce
that he was endorsing Rees before
the group got down to the business of
discussing the campaign. The meeting
was not a secret, and it took place at the
busy intersection of Plant and Dillard
behind clear glass.
But someone saw an opportunity
to misrepresent and exploit what the
campaign meeting was about. He de-
cided to secretly videotape the meeting
in order to try to discredit Rees later.
And it was easy to secretly film the
attendees at the Winter Garden Restau-
rant because they weren't hiding from
anyone. Ironically, the videotape was
filming as Rees told the crowd that he
wanted to run a clean campaign and
asked anyone not willing to do that to
leave the meeting.
On television it didn't look so in-
nocent. Playing the video in slow mo-
tion gave it a particularly sinister look,
which helped Channel 9 "Eyewitness"
News sensationalize the non-story.
Poorly shot video of nuns walking out
of a church will give the impression
that they're up to no good, if it's played
in slow motion.
And, to make the "story" even less
credible, former Winter Garden Com-
missioner Rod Reynolds who's no
stranger to lowbrow politics walked
the reporter through the "anonymous-
ly" filmed footage and provided his
"insight" on ethics and the Florida
Sunshine Law.
What makes this more sensational
and sleazy is that with more than 50
people in attendance, it would be very
easy to find out if the Sunshine Law
had been violated. But that certainly
wouldn't be as visual for a local televi-
sion station and wouldn't provide po-
litical mud to sling. Still no legitimate
allegations have been made only

political ones.
This Channel 9 report, which cred-
ited the footage to a supporter of Rees'
opponent, Mack McLaughlin, was so
bogus that it would have been an op-
portune time for McLaughlin to dis-
tance himself by condemning such
lowbrow politics. But that's not what
happened.
Hours.before the "story" aired last
Thursday, McLaughlin released a state-
ment on his Web site saying, "Appar-
ently, someone filmed a closed-door
campaign meeting of John Rees, a can-
didate for mayor, which was attended
by Winter Garden's current mayor,
three city commissioners, a member
of the Canvassing Board and some
prominent developers. Many question
whether the meeting may have violated
Florida's Sunshine Law."
Who are these 'many,' and whom are
they questioning? Or was this charade
designed to make people question this?
The truth is that commissioners, Can-
vassing Board members, the mayor,
developers, business owners, personal
trainers and any other citizens have the
right to support and actively show their
support for any candidate. To insinu-
ate that they're violating the Sunshine
Law, simply because they're seen at
a function together, is irresponsible.
Should elected officials now fear that
when they sit together at a "city table"
at a Chamber gathering that their judg-
ment, or knowledge of the Sunshine
Law, will be called into question?
McLaughlin said in his statement
that if he's elected he "will make sure
that all commissioners and appointed
city board members are made aware
of the Sunshine Law and adhere to it"
strictly." That sounds great, but, actu-
ally, the mayor doesn't have the au-
thority to do that. So, Mack, if you're
elected, you'll only be responsible for
your own character. Maybe that would
be a good theme for your campaign as
well. It's working for John Rees.

It was a gala occasion at the Bay Hill Club as
more than 300 members and guests turned out to
say "congratulations" and "welcome home" to
their favorite champion. It had been somewhat
of a dry spell for Arnold Palmer until his winning
of the Bob Hope Desert Classic but his friends
never gave up on him.

From Editor's Notebook: We note that the
eminent anthropologist, Richard Leakey, will
be speaking in Orlando, which reminds us that
it has been nearly two years (April 1) since his
name appeared in The Winter Garden Times -

Springs Man discovery. We've considered send-
ing Mr. Leakey a copy of that memorable issue,
but we're not sure he'd be pleased.

FINDING A BARGAIN
Houses that are spotlessly clean and
tastefully decorated tend to sell quick-
ly, and for the best price. On the other
hand, home-buyers who are .'iir.j to
overlook surface clutter or other cos-
ii, ,, ijiir', of an "as-is" property can
come through the transaction with
substantial savings.
When you look at a home that needs
work, try to imagine it with fresh paint,
refinished floors and new carpet.
Consider the good features of the
house. Would it get more sunlight if
the draperies wefe opened and the
windows cleaned? Does the back yard
have potential? Would the interior be
transformed by applying a fresh coat
of paint to the walls? Try to distinguish
between the cosmetic condition of the
house and the state of its structure and
major systems. Some fixer-uppers
need a lot of professional attention
from electricians, plumbers and other
expensive professionals, while others
are true bargains that can be trans-
formed with a little elbow grease, a
paintbrush, and your imagination.
If you would like to talk further
about buying or selling real estate,
please contact Libby Tomyn CRS at
Century 21 Professional Group. Call

WGHF to benefit from Wemyss' business move


"Sure, moving is a
challenge," said local interior
designer Jean Wemyss, "but
it's a great opportunity for
me to move into a wonderful
space. Why not make it a great
opportunity for the Winter
Garden Heritage Foundation
as well?"
Wemyss is moving up, taking
her design business upstairs at
31 Main St., Suite 1 and this
leaves her with her store Nice
Digs full of merchandise. In a
strategy designed to support
the Winter Garden Heritage
foundation, as well as reduce
the need to move or store her
furnishings, Wemyss will be
offering much of her inventory
at a silent auction Saturday,
March 8.
The proceeds will be split
with the foundation, "a real
win-win for everyone," said
Wemyss.
"I really love working in
Winter Garden, which is why
I'm staying on Main Street My
new space... has great light,
beautiful raw brick walls and
al the charm you might expect
in this town., she said.
The public is invited to bid
on the merchandise at a silent
auction and barbecue Saturday,
March 8. The WG Heritage


Jean Wemyss (center) stands with some of the items that
will be included in the silent auction. With her are Gretchen
Boyd (left) and Ward Britt. All 3 are Heritage Foundation
board members.


Museum will be celebrating its
10th anniversary that day too.
Guests can look for everything
from accessories and lamps
to sofas, artwork, tables and
armoires.
Said Gretchen Boyd of
the Heritage Foundation,


"Remember, each beautiful
item purchased is both a gift
to yourself and your beautiful
town."

Jazzercise founder to visit Windermere


Judi Sheppard Missett, fitness
pioneer and Jazzercise founder/
CEO, will be in Windermere
on Saturday, March 1, to teach
a 9:30 a.m. class at the Wind-
ermere Union Church, 10710
Parkridge-Gotha Road.

payment due in/August. The
interest on the loan is approxi-
mately $73,000 this fiscal year
and approximately $140,000
per future year with no pre-
payment penalty.
Mayor Scott Vandergrift
commented that the Ocoee
Commerce Parkway building
would serve the needs of the
Police Department for at least
15 years. The department is
currently crammed into 7,500
square feet in the Municipal
Complex at Starke Lake, with


cise enthusiasts are expected to
attend the event, which is open
to the public.
"We're thrilled to have Judi
coming to Windermere," said
local Jazzercise instructor Jodie
Ritter.
The 60-minute Jazzercise class


staffers also working out of
temporary trailers. The former
State Farm building is nearly
18,000 square feet, therefore
more than doubling the depart-

The mayor also pointed out
that the building provides a use-
ful layout for the police and can
by expanded either up or out on
the four-acre lot.

police station at the intersection
of Clarke andA.D. Mims roads
and later purchased 12 acres
there for $3.5 million. Frank
told The West Orange Times
that there has been interest by
developers and others in buy-
ing this site from the city and
he feels the city would have
no problem in selling it in the
future.
One of the reasons the city
decided to buy rather than build
the new station is because of the


Wades spend lifetime helping

others now they need help


Imagine a lifetime of selfless work, then
imagine losing the few precious items that
mean the most to you.
This is what happened to John and
LaVerne Wade on Dec. 14 when a television
in the master bedroom shorted out and a
fire swept through their Winter Garden
home. Luckily, no one was home, but
everything inside was ruined by fire, smoke
or water.
On that day, John Wade was at the home of
an elderly friend in Winter Garden, helping
her put up her Christmas decorations. His
wife, LaVerne Wade, was at a doctor's
appointment.
The Wades have lived a frugal life, often
putting other people's needs above theirs.
They firmly believe in putting their faith
in action and have spent their lives helping
others even though they, themselves, have
limited means.
To make matters worse, a few weeks
after the fire, the Wades discovered while
cleaning the site that someone had been to
the house to steal copper. When the thieves
tried to cut into the water pipes, they were
still under pressure and the water began
spraying everywhere and continued flowing
all night, adding to the destruction.
Here is an opportunity for the community
to give back to John and LaVerne Wade
the care and compassion they have shown
throughout the years. Their insurance
company will pay only $75,000 toward the
replacement of their home, and although
many vendors and contractors have signed
up to help the Wades, additional funds need
to be raised to cover the cost of building
a new home.
A benevolence fund has been set up at
Washington Mutual for anyone wanting


to help the Wades. Contributions, which
are tax-deductible, can be deposited in the
John or LaVerne Wade Benevolent Trust,
account number 3404072930.
John Wade started working at the First
Baptist Church of Winter Garden in 1975.
He was the maintenance supervisor there for
30 years before having to retire for health
reasons. LaVerne Wade worked there, as
well, for more than 20 years. She started as
a secretary but later, after marrying John,
helped him in maintenance and custodial.
Friends say they always worked hard to
keep the buildings repaired and clean and
minded all the little details to make sure the
church was ready for worship services, that
weddings at the church were happy events,
that the church was ready for and tidied up
after special events and that the classrooms
of Foundation Academy were ready for the
young learners.
They both took pride in the fruits of their
labors and made sure the church they love
was a beautiful to everyone else as it was
to them. They collect aluminum cans and
take them to the recycling plant to earn
extra money. This money is sometimes
used to purchase clothing or meals for less-
fortunate people.
The Wades say they saw "glimpses of
God's protective hand" in the midst of
the devastation from the fire, LaVerne's
diabetes medicine was in the room that was
totally destroyed by fire, but her medication
was untouched. A photo of LaVerne and
her sisters, who live up north and rarely
see LaVerne, was also unharmed, even
though the frame melted around it. And all
the clothes in her closet burned, but her
irreplaceable photographs above the closet
were barely warm.


West Orange residents, students help 'Dress the Dream'


Plato's Closet Ocoee and
area high schools are teaming
up to "Dress the Dream."
Following the model of a
similar program from Winter
Park High, this community
service project encourages
the community to donate
clean, gently used men's and
women's formal wear so that
less fortunate students will be
able to attend prom.
Donations can be brought to
Plato's Closet in the Old Time
Pottery Plaza on Colonial
Drive in Ocoee. Area high
school students can receive


recent property-tax cuts man-. two community service hours
dated by the State Legislature. for each dress or suit that


is accepted. Several high
school groups, including
Ocoee and West Orange high
school .student government
associations, are already on
board to help.
Heidi Koch, the owner
of Plato's Closet and a local
PTSA member and community
volunteer, is excited about the
idea of having a program where
teens help other teens.
She said, "It is terrific to
see these wonderful young
people stepping forward to
help others."
Koch also noted there is so
much enthusiasm about the
program that extra space is


needed to sort and store the
clothing. They are looking for
a warehouse or extra space in
the area.
The West Orange County
"Dress the Dream" is also
going a step further., Plato's
Closet and students will be
soliciting hair/make-up gift
certificates from local salons,
and local businesses are being
asked to sponsor a prom ticket
for a needy student.
To donate a dress or a suit

OCPS Food, Nutrition Services offers ideas for 'FCAT fuel' Cameras


As the Florida Comprehen-
sive Assessment Tests (FCAT)
get underway, Orange County
Public Schools Food and Nutri-
tion Services has a few tips to
help parents give their children
an edge on test days.
"Research continues to
emerge showing a direct link
between proper nutrition and
the learning process," said
Lora Gilbert, director of the
Food and Nutrition Services.
"Add the stress of test-taking,
and healthy eating is even more
important."
Gilbert suggested that parents
make sure children start test days
with a healthy breakfast.
"If a child's breakfast wears
off in an hour or so, their ener-
gy and concentration will wane
throughout the day," she said.
Suggested breakfast menus
include low-fat milk and whole-
grain cereal, whole-wheat bread
with peanut butter or eggs, toast
and jam. Protein-based foods
take longer to digest, thereby
providing longer lasting en-
ergy.
Packing appropriate snacks
for children to enjoy during
test breaks is important as well.
Foods Gilbert recommended as
effective "FCAT fuel" include
trail mix, energy bars, fresh
fruits and vegetables, fat-free
yogurt or hard-boiled eggs. Bot-
tled water should be included to
ensure proper hydration.
Gilbert suggested that stu-
dents avoid snack food made


Warning
captured the woman and two
girls approximately 16 to 20
years old walking out of the
store just after the card was
used. The same woman was
captured on surveillance Jan. 24
leaving the same Wal-Mart after
making purchases on another
stolen credit card, Butler said.
Kim Rose, who runs
Shirley's Trailside Antiques

happened to her about 10 years
ago. A black woman came into.
her store with four children and
began asking for the prices of
items on the high shelves. Rose
asked a co-worker to keep her
eye on the children, but the
smallest, who was 5 or 6, Rose
said, still managed to find and
take her wallet.
Andwhatsurprisedher, she said,


with refined carbohydrates,
which include sugar, corn syrup
and white flour. These simple
carbs offer fewer nutrients and
are less satisfying and more fat-
tening.
Caffeine's a no-go, as well, in
Gilbert's opinion.
"While sugar and caffeine
provide an immediate boost,
they also cause a mental and
physical 'crash,'" she said. "So
that rules out candy bars, regu-
lar or diet sodas and sugary fruit
drinks. If children want a sweet
treat, a couple of squares of dark
chocolate can replace a candy
bar and provide better energy
and health benefits."
When it comes to evening
meals during the testing periods,
Gilbert suggested that pasta,
corn, rice and potatoes be avoid-
ed as they take more energy to
digest. A better choice would be
whole-wheat pasta, brown rice,
baked potato or sweet potato.
"We've heard all our lives
that fish is a 'brain food.' It's
not alone. There are plenty of
foods with nutritional proper-
ties that stimulate mental growth
and productivity. These include
beans and other legumes, lean
beef, chicken, eggs, nuts, soy
foods, berries, melons and veg-
etables that are green, red or
orange," Gilbert said.
Physical activity and proper
rest can also play a role in test
success. Gilbert recommended
that parents whose children are
not already involved in a sport


take their youngsters to the play-
ground or for a long walk or a
bike ride after school on test
days.
"Sleep is always a special
concern during the FCATs.
Many children are nervous or
under pressure, and that can
translate to not sleeping well.
As long as a child gets plenty
of sleep in the weeks leading up
to the tests, it won't be a prob-
lem if they don't sleep well the
night before a test," Gilbert said,
noting that a nutritious breakfast
was more beneficial than an ex-
tra half-hour of sleep.
But studies have shown chil-
dren require eight to 10 hours
of optimal sleep for growth and
wellness.
School food and nutrition
have received an intense focus
over the last three years. As a re-
sult, OCPS Food and Nutrition
Services has offered bigger side
salads and increased variety of
fruits and vegetables, removed
fried foods and non-nutritious
drinks, has followed new prod-
uct specifications such as whole-
grain breads and cereals and a
limit on sugar in cereal of no
more than 10 grams. Food and
Nutrition Services won the Pub-
lic Health Hero Award from the
Orange County Public Health
Department by eliminating
products with trans-fats.

Romantic dance seminar this week in Winter Garden


Alberto and Selena Hoyos have
been teaching their clients how
to harness the power of dance to
achieve increased success in their
business and personal lives. They
have developed a program spe-
cifically for couples and will pres-
ent a "Your Dance of romance"


seminar Feb. 14-16 at their pri-
vate studio in Winter Garden.
Teaching the same philoso-

mances, the Hoyoses integrate
relationship-building principles

new understanding of relation-
,ships in a fun atmosphere.

was that her purse was hidden
under the counter and behind
a desk, in a paper grocery bag
with a jacket thrown over it.
"They're fast because they
know what they're doing,"
she said. "I didn't realize my
wallet was missing until my
bank called to see if I had made
charges" at several local stores.
"Then they came back," she
said, "and that's what really
ticked me off."
In fact, Rose said, the woman
and her cohorts have been in
her antiques store at least three
times since then. The "wallet
people," as she calls them,
come in nicely dressed, and
the woman always has her hair
neatly styled and her fingernails
manicured.
Several locations along Plant


Street have been struck through
the years as well, including a
thrift store that was previously
located in Gentry's storefront.
These thieves have also been
known to get violent. According
to Rose, a man took a woman's
wallet at a shop in the Villages
at Lady Lake, and when she
noticed it tucked into his
waistband, she confronted him.
He responded 'by punching her
in the jaw, knocking her down
and stomping on her head.
Rose gave some advice
for small shop owners and
employees:
Keep your wallet under lock
and key and keep the key with
you, not in a drawer; or, better
yet, don't keep your purse or
wallet in the store.
Keep minimal cash in your


wallet. Don't carry anything.
with your Social Security
number on it.
"When somebody comes
into your store and you think
something's up but you can't
put your finger on it, go ahead
and call the police, call 911 and
set the phone down."
Guard your cash box.
Be wary if someone wants
to use the restroom then returns
to say there is no toilet paper.
They just want you away from
the counter, Rose said.
Plant a fake wallet behind
the counter.
Rose admits she has had
a decoy wallet purposely
left empty except for a nasty
written note taken from her
business. She found it months
later ditched behind some


furniture.
"You get that vibe the minute
they walk in that door," said
Rose. "I would like to know that
one day they will get caught."

pects in the recent wallet

Joy Pici to compete in state pageant.


Local student earns scholarships,
plans to compete for more


By Allison Lee

Joy Pici, a high school se-
nior from Ocoee, was selected
to represent Orange County at
the Florida Junior Miss Schol-
arship. This state competition,
which is part of the national
America's Junior Miss Schol-
arship Program, will award
thousands of dollars in college
scholarships to its participants
March 1 in Perry.
Joy, who attends the First
Academy, performed an aria
from HMS Pinafore for her tal-
ent selection and will present
this piece at the state competition
as well. Joy, who studies voice
with Dawn Pici at the Preferred
Arts studio in Ocoee, earned the
physical fitness award and the
academic achievement award at
the county level, taking home a
total of $1,800 in scholarships
and prizes.


To prepare for the state pro-
gram, she has been polishing
her talent performance, taking
classes at her YMCA and par-
ticipating in mock interviews.
In addition, she will submit an
essay for the Junior Miss "Be
Your Best Self" essay compe-
tition.
After a week of preparation
and rehearsals in Perry, Joy will
take the stage, along with other
teens from around the state, to
compete for the scholarships
that will help her pursue her
education.
America's Junior Miss is
different from typical beauty
pageants in that it has no bath-
ing suit competition but evalu-
ates the candidates on their
academic achievement, talent,
physical fitness, self-expression
and judges' interviews.

S? Sound Sweets concert at Windermere Union


The music and fine arts
department of Windermere
Union Church, United Church
of Christ, will continue its free
Sound Sweets concert series this
Sunday, Feb. 17, at 7:30 p.m. in
the sanctuary.
The concert will be a cel-
ebration of popular music with
tunes from Broadway and many
songs from the '60s to the pres-


ent. There will be professional
performers from Universal
Studios and Walt Disney World
and many who have made their
own recordings. Some of them
are members of Windermere
Union.
During the concert, a choice
of desserts by the Dessert Lady
will be available. Complemen-
tary beverages will be provided.


Former Windermere Mayor Gene Spears (left), who is also a past-president of the Win-
dermere Rotary Club, welcomes current Windermere Mayor Gary Bruhn (2nd from the
left) as the guest speaker at the club's Jan. 22 meeting. With them (1-r) are Town Man-
ager Cecilia Bernier, Rotary President John Crippen and President-elect Byron Sutton.

Mayor addresses Windermere Rotary Club


Gene Spears, a former mayor
of Windermere and a past Win-
dermere Rotary Club president,
introduced current Mayor Gary
Bruhn to club members and
guests at the club's regular
breakfast meeting Jan. 22.
Mayor Bruhn presented a
review of the town's accom-
plishments during the past
year and the challenges ahead.
He discussed the growth in
the surrounding area and the
town's diminishing revenues.
Both are recurring issues for
Windermere. Bruhn said the
town is prepared to face these
challenges because it has re-
sponsible elected officials and
staff.
Windermere recently com-
pleted the first phase of its


sidewalk improvement plan
and a three-block trail along
the shoreline at the west end of
Lake Down. Both are visions
of the Parks and Recreation
Committee to provide better
and safer pedestrian and bicycle
accessibility throughout town.
The mayor said town of-
ficials are negotiating with
Orlando Utilities Commission
for right-of-way to make traffic
improvements at Park Avenue
and Maguire Road. He noted
how slowly the wheels of gov-
ernment turn.
He discussed and clarified
facts and rumors regarding the
annexation of Isleworth and 30
homes in Butler Bay.
He said the town is still ne-
gotiating with developer Kevin


Azzouz concerning what the
new downtown area will look
like. Mayor Bruhn said Wind-
ermere drafted a developer's
agreement that was delivered to
Azzouz in September. He said
the developer has not responded
because he has another project
that is consuming his time and
efforts. Bruhn said there is no
deadline for a response on the
developer's agreement.
In conclusion, the mayor
thanked the club for all it does
for the town and the surround-
ing community.
The Rotary Club of Win-
,dermere meets each Tues-
day morning at Windermere
Town Hall. For more informa-
tion, call Coert Voorhees at
407-876-6987.


WP 6th-grader attends Maile workshop
Summer Port resident Jaclyn Ryan poses with TV actor
John D'Aquino after a recent acting workshop D'Aquino
presented at Lisa Maile Acting, Modeling, Imaging school
in Winter Park. D'Aquino, who can currently be seen as the
'President' on Disney Channel's 'Corey in the House' and
'Hannah Montana,' is a veteran of 6 TV series and hun-
dreds of hours of network TV. Ryan, a 6th-grader at Win-
dermere Prep, has taken several Maile classes and par-
ticipated in the workshop, which was open to youth 7-17.
The class provided hands-on training on everything from
becoming a character to the difference between wanting
to act and wanting fame. After the 3-hour workshop, the
students presented a review for their parents. D'Aquino is
scheduled to present another workshop in March.


Donations will be accepted.
Future concerts will be held
on the third Sunday of the month
throughout the spring: March 16,
April 20 and May 18. All con-
certs are coordinated and direct-
ed by Kevin Harris, the church's

A special mat has been installed at the Lake Down Trail so wheelchair users can enjoy
the path as well.

Phase I completed at Lake Down Trail


The town of Windermere
has completed the first phase
of the Lake Down Trail, which
allows citizens to enjoy the
natural beauty of Lake Down.
Through the efforts of Wind-
ermere's Park and Recreation
Committee, a mat system
compliant with the Americans
with Disabilities Act has been
installed over grass surfaces to


provide access for wheelchairs.
Its drainage system provides
accessibility at all times and
protects the wheelchair user
from becoming mired in soft
mud after rain or watering. The
mat is a recycled product made
in the United States and creates
a natural green environment.
With the mat system installa-
tion now completed by Wind-


ermere Land and Tree Services,
the next phase of the trail will
be completed in the next week
or so. This phase will add play-
ground equipment and picnic
benches.
The Lakeshore.Down Trail
runs from Third to Fifth av-
enues on the western shore of
Lake Down and is approxi-
mately a fifth of a mile long.

Ocoee High is headed to the
state championship in soccer.
The Knights (23-1-3) captured
the regional title last Friday night,
advancing to this weekend's Fi-
nal Four playoff to determine the
Class 6A state champion.
Ocoee once again rode its
suffocating defense to victory in
the 2-0 regional final win over
Tampa Alonso. Goalie Keniel
Baker racked up 11 saves to en-
sure a third-straight shutout in the
playoffs. It marked Baker's 13th
shutout of the season.
After a scoreless first half,
Ricardo Rosas put Ocoee on the
scoreboard in the 47th minute of
play with a goal off an Alfredo
Garcia assist. Less than five min-
utes later, Rosas returned the fa-
vor, dishing out the assist on a
Garcia goal.
The Knights continue their
quest for the state title this Fri-
day in Fort Lauderdale at 7 p.m.
against Weston Cypress Bay. The
winner will play in the champi-
onship game on Saturday at 5
p.m. All games will take place
at Lockhart Stadium.
Ocoee Coach Peter Moore


credits his players' passion and
poise for carrying the team to the
Final Four.
"Nothing surprises me with
this team as they play hard ev-
ery time they go out," he said.
"Their passion for the sport is
incredible, and this has helped
them find ways to win.
"We will be playing the best
teams in Florida, and it will be a
great challenge for the players,"
Moore added. "I believe if they
show the kind of maturity they
have showed this far, we will do
well."
Earlier last week, Ocoee host-
ed the regional semifinal playoff
game and defeated Melbourne
1-0. Baker notched another shut-
out with the help of defenders C.J.
Williams, Josue Rivera, Johnny
Duty, Emilio Torres and Garcia.
The game-winning goal came off
the foot of Phillip Borde.
"I feel the players have done
very well this year and have come
together not only as a team, but
also like a family," Moore said.
"This has been a great year for
the players, as they play for each
other."

New group forms
On Feb. 6, a new organi-
zation formed at Ocoee High
called the Service Learning
Council. The group was formed
through a grant that encourag-
es students to become actively
involved in making a difference
in the community.
Using funds from the grant,
the SLC then funds' other


groups that develop service
projects. Afl projects must in-
volve students doing service.
Projects can include but are
not limited to environmental,
intergenerational, historical
restoration, tutoring, coaching,
interdisciplinary or social com-
munity-needs activities.
Student club proposals.must
have an adult advisor and in-


volve at least 10 students. The
SLC then distributes funds to
the various groups and by do-
ing so creates an atmosphere
of service above self.
The council is student-driv-
en, and all decisions are made
by the students. It is one more
example of young people tak-
ing responsibility for the world
in which they live.

have to build projects, some


have to answer questions and
some have to perform experi-
ments and gather other data.
The team consists of up to
15 participants and is coached

place winner, but the Olympi-
ad is a team event. The teams

Healthcare professionals' input needed for survey


The proposed magnet high
school for the health sciences,
a partnership of Lake County
Schools, Lake-Sumter Com-
munity College and South Lake
Hospital, is well in its planning
stage.
Milestones achieved include
the transfer of 10 acres of land
on LSCC's South Lake Campus
to the school board, as well as
funding agreements for $3 million
from the school board and $1 mil-
lion from South Lake Hospital.
The funds will go toward the


construction of a health sciences
lab facility on the college cam-
pus that will serve dual-enrolled
students. Committees have been
formed that are addressing the
governance, financial, curriculum
and facilities aspects for what is
called the Health Science Educa-
tion Joint Project.
These committees are current-
ly seeking the opinions of area
healthcare professionals on key
issues by asking them to fill out
a short survey. It can be accessed
via the Internet at classclimate.


Iscc.edu/classclimate/indexstud.
php through Feb. 15. Enter the
password "health," complete the
survey and then hit the "submit"
button.
The project's goal is to offer
educational opportunities for stu-
dents that will lead to employment
in a variety of high-wage, high-
demand health-related careers.
The program will also provide
an educational foundation for
those students wanting to transfer
to universities to earn advanced
medical and health degrees.

Du or. let your hearts be troublc.Jani J..
not be afraid. "John 14:27

It seems these days witlrall the threats of war,
immorality, rising cost of gas, food, drugs, med-
ical care, etc. that w' lose sight of the fact that
God is always in control. The Bible teachesthat
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 vants us to know thai when the world
goes wild, He stays calm. Want proof? Read the
last name on the list! In spite of all th6 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. Ayo-yo economy 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.

Medtronic has pulled its Sprint Fidelis defibrillation leads from the market
after fractures in the leads were linked to five patient deaths. Patients
with these leads may have received a warning letter from the manufacturer.
A fractured lead "can cause the defibrillator to deliver unneces-
sary shocks or not operate at all."
If you have a Sprint Fidelis lead, your Patient ID card should contain one of
the following four sets of numbers:
6930 6931 6948 6949
(These numbers may be shown at the beginning of a longer set of numbers on your ID card.)
In addition, the St. Jude Riata defibrillator lead has been reported to
punch holes in the heart and has been linked to at least
one death.
