Rees win
John Rees begins
a three-year term as
Winter Garden's mayor
after defeating Mack
McLaughlin in the Feb.
26 run-off.

By Michael Laval

A chagingg of the guard took place
at last Thursday's Winter Garden City
Commission meeting. The winner of
Last week's mayoral run-off election,'
John Rees was sworn in as the city's
first new mayor in 16 years.
"I'd like to thank all my friends
and supporters," Rees said. "The
campaign took a lot of hard work by
a lot of good people."
Rees received 59.319 percent
of the Feb. 26 vote to defeat Mack
McLaughlin with 40.681. A total of
3,434 votes were cast, which repre-
sents only a quarter of Winter Gar-
den's registered voters.

"This humbles you," Rees said of
the results, "and I want to make sure
I .do 'a good job. It puts a lot of pres-
sure on you to live up to the expecta-
tions." I
The voting results fell overwhelm-
ingly in line with district boundaries.
Rees dominated districts 1, 2 and 3
by taking 85, 81 and 81 percent of the
vote, respectively, in those districts.
McLaughlin, carried District 4 with
68 percent.
District 1 had the highest voter
turnout rate with 31 percent, fol-
lowed by District 2 at 29 percent.
Twenty-four percent of District 4
voters turned out, while 15 percent of
District 3 voters cast ballots.
Last Thursday's commission meet-
ing opened with 16-year incumbent
Mayor Jack Quesinberry handing off
the gavel to Rees, and Rees returned
the favor b'y presenting Quesinberry
with a plaque honoring him for his
service.
"We owe a lot of gratitude to the
mayor," Rees told The West Orange

Water still a concern in Oakland


By Amy Quesinberry

A consulting firm hired last
September to create a Mas-
ter Water Plan for the town of
Oakland is still working on this
document, and, in the meantime,
residents and business owners
are wondering when there will
be sufficient water and the go-
ahead for construction proj-
ects.
Two groups came before the
Oakland Town Commission at
its Feb. 26 meeting with ques-
tions regarding the water issue
and how it relates to their proj-
ects.
The first was the Oakland
Nature Preserve, which is in
the midst of constructing a
4,000-square-foot educational
center near the ONP entrance.
Jim Thomas and Tom Rodri-
guez questioned the need for a
$60,000 sprinkler system in the
building and said they were at
the phase of construction where
it would have to be installed
now if required.
The sprinkler system isn't
necessary, Thomas and Rodri-
guez argued, because ONP can
install a well for its backup wa-
ter supply in case of a fire at the


center.
The pair said the center-won't
use much more water than the
temporary ONP office uses now.
The new facility will have two
toilets and sinks.
The town wants to avoid
a repeat of Aug. 5, one of the
hottest days in 2007, when the
town didn't have enough water
for fire protection only po-
table and laundry.
ONP expects to have the
building completed by late 2008
or early 2009.'
Town Planner Roland Mag-
yar is hoping to have all water
issues in the town solved by
summer.
Also appearing before the
commission was Marc Grimes,
who wants to expand his office
building at Oakland Avenue and
Tubb Street, Magyar pointed out
that the town currently has water
for existing homes and buildings
and enough to extend to the 63
residential infill lots but not for
commercial projects.
Grimes' argument was that he
already has water on the prop-
erty and had a water meter and
paid impact fees when he built
the 700-square-foot office 12
years ago. He is adding 2,500

He said the addition wouldn't
require much more water usage,
but Magyar argued that it's pos-
sible he could sell the building
next year to a dog groomer who
would bathe animals all day ev-
ery day.
Mayor Kathy Stark said
Grimes' situation is an unin-
tended consequence of the water
issue and that his request should
be granted. Grimes was asked to
come back to a later meeting,
probably in April, when the con-
sultants will provide another up-
date on the Water Master Plan.
I Commissioners hired CPH of
Orlando in September to create
the town's first-ever water sys-
tem master plan. The firm came
before the Town Commission at
its Jan. 8 meeting and presented
the preliminary findings.
Residents use an average of
600,000 gallons of water per
day the equivalent of 417
gallons each minute. The peak-
hour flow rate is between 1,700
and 1,800 gallons per minute.
In 2006, the water consump-
tion went as high as 1.3 million
gallons in a day (902 gallons/
minute).

Windermere,

county seek

resolution

of conflict

Subject to approval of the
elected officials, staff agree to
extend the mediation process on
the Isleworth annexation until
May 1.

By Kathy Aber

Orange County and Windermere are at odds
over the town's intended annexation of Isleworth
(1,070 acres, including 380 lots) and Butler Bay,
Unit 1 (60 acres with 36 residential lots).
At the Town Council meeting Jan. 8,
Windermere adopted two ordinances to annex
the two communities.
The county is objecting to Windermere's
proposed annexations and notified the town of
its intent to begin conflict resolution. This is
a two-step process, that could lead to a formal
-court challenge, if mediation efforts fail.
Staff representatives of both governments met
Friday at the Orange County Administration
Building in Orlando to see if they could resolve
their disagreements.
County Attorney Tom Drage began the
discussion, citing various points on which both
sides agree. He said any municipality has the
right to annex unincorporated territory, however
state law provides that the annexation cannot
be accomplished unless the municipality can
provide adequate urban service, such as 'fire
and rescue, emergency medical and garbage
pickup. In addition, Drage said, urban services
established for the annexed areas must be
substantially the same as those provided to,
current residents.
He said fire-rescue services must be available
on the date of annexation, not a da\ later, and
the town must\show how it intends to finance
these services.
Currently, Windermere provides fire-rescue
services through an agreement with the Ocoee
Fire Department (OFD) in effect since 1991.
OFD responds to calls in Windermere from its
station on Maguire Road, just north of the'town
limits. Through an automatic aid agreement
between Ocoee and the county signed in 1994,
the county also responds to emergency calls in
Windermere primarily from four fire stations,
three of which are less than four miles from
tow n.
The county is also a first responder for
emergency medical services, although Health

Annex
Central paramedics have a
substation in town as well.
During public hearings held
along with Windermere's
adoption of the annexation
ordinances, the town
discussed the OFD's need
for a substation in town to
provide service in Isleworth.
The county argued that the
annexation report prepared by
the town. explaining how it
would provide services to the
new areas, does not mention
this new station or its cost.
Drage said this deficiency
in the town's annexation
report is the county's most
significant objection to the
annexation.
If the annexations proceed,
county stated its intent to
discontinue responding to
emergency calls in Isleworth
and Butler Bay under its
automatic aid agreement.
"The town is left with one
station, that being Ocoee,
and a single ambulance
substation." Drage said.
Orange County Deputy
Attorney Joel Prinsell told the
Windermere representatives
last week, "We don't think
the reports show the town
can provide these crucial
services" as currently
provided.
A referendum of registered
voters in Butler Bay, Unit 1
is currently underway via
mail balloting with a March
11 return deadline. If voters
approve the annexation, the
county plans to contest it.
A similar referendum for
Isleworth has been postponed
because Windermere has not
obtained preliminary approval
from major property holders
in the community. This is
a special circumstance that
applies only to the Isleworth
annexation. Windermere's
annexation ordinance is
set to expire in late 2012.
This allows the town five
years to obtain the required
consent and then set up
the referendum on the next
available election date after
this consent is obtained.
The county is also
challenging the validity
of Windermere's 17-year-
old fire-rescue agreement
with Ocoee. They contend
Windermere's transfer
of responsibility for
these services to another
muncipality requires a dual
referendum of voters in both
communities.
Windermere- Attorney Bill
Osborne responded to the
county charges.
Windermere 'disagrees
with the county's standard
for fire and rescue services.
Osborne said the county
standard is not a valid
comparison in assessing the
coverage provided today to
Windermere residents.
Osborne pointed out that
this is the first time since
the county approved its
automatic aid agreement
with Ocoee in 1994 that it has
refused services to annexed
areas. He cited several large
annexations by Ocoee,
Orlando and Winter Park
and questioned why Orange
County has not refused
continuing its fire-rescue
response to those areas under
its automatic agreements.
"I find it curious this is
the first time the .county has
taken this position," Osborne
commented.
Regarding the county
position that Windermere's
agreement with Ocoee is
invalid, Osborne said, "The
county has been silent for 17
years, and now we're hearing
about it."
Osborne defended
Windermere's right to extend
the annexation process until
2012 by quoting state law.
He said the statute does not
specify when a referendum
must be held.

West Orange
Neighborhood Center
for Families to host
open house Thursday
The West Orange Neighbor-
hood Center for Families will
host an open house this Thurs-
day, March 6, from 11 a.m. to
2 p.m. and from 3-6 p.m. Hors


d'oeuvres will be served at the
open house, which will feature
friendly and informative re-
source sharing.
The center is located at West-
side Tech, 955 E. Story Road,
Winter Garden at the back of the
campus. NCF Portables I and
2 are behind the main building.
The Orange County Citizen's
Commission funds the WONCF
for Children.
For more information, call
407-905-2036.


Cecilia Bernier suggested
several ways to resolve the
conflict over the automatic
aid agreement, including a
renegotiation so that Ocoee
becomes the town's only
provider of fire and rescue
services.
She pointed out to county
staff that Windermere had
annexed an area of 35 homes
across the street from Butler
Bay, Unit 1 less than a year
ago and it wasn't an issue for
the county and coverage has
continued.
Windermere Town
Council Member John
Briggs, an attorney, who also
participated in last week's
meeting, reiterated that the
conflict resolution process
is a required, legal 'step in
making a formal challenge
in court.
In court, he said the county
would ask a judge to decide
if the urban services would
be adequate on the date of
annexation, which is unknown
in the case of Isleworth.
Since the town cannot
proceed with the Isleworth
referendum until it obtains
consent from a majority of
the property owners, such as
the homeowners association
and country club owners,
Briggs speculated nobody
knows if the annexation will
ever happen.
He assured the county staff
that by the time annexation
occurs, urbanservices would
be identical and not an issue.
"Until the annexation is
done, there is nothing for
the court to analyze," said
Briggs.
Then, he asked: "What's it
going to take to resolve this?
We're anxious to hear that."
Attorney Drage asked
Windermere to repeal its
annexation ordinances and
start the process over.
Drage said the county's
second major concern is
leaving the annexation
process open for five years.
"We have a responsibility
to challenge that,", said
Drage.
In addition, he said
Windermere should
have obtained consent of
major property owners in
Isleworth before it started the
annexation process.
Briggs argued that
Windermere had no basis to
seek annexation consent until
the town had formalized the
process.
"It's sort of like the chicken
and the egg issue," said
Briggs.
Attorney Prinsell said
the way the Windermere
annexation ordinance is
written it could lead to
"absurd results."
Windermere's town

manager said the request
for consent is part of the
annexation procedure and is
specified by state law.
Briggs questioned if the
county was really going to
challenge the validity of
Ocoee's agreement with
Windermere.
Bernier pointed out that the
county has not challenged a
similar fire-rescue agreement
between Maitland and
Eatonville, which also was
not approved by a dual
referendum.
Osborne asked what
the county could offer in
exchange for Windermere's
repeal of its annexation
ordinances, specifically if
the county would extend its
automatic aid agreement to
the annexed areas.
County Administrator Ajit
Lalchandani told Windermere
in addition to repealing the
ordinance the town needs to
build a fire substation.
"If you have those assets
in place, some of these
arguments go away," said
Lalchandani.
He said the county spends
$4 to $5 million to construct a
fire station, which is typically
staffed by 20-24 firefighters
with an operational cost
of $1.8 million annually,
including salaries.
After a brief recess, the two
staffs reconvened and agreed
to ask their respective boards
to approve an extension of
the conflict resolution process
until May 1.
The county staff was
scheduled to present the
extension request to the Board
of County Commissioners
Tuesday, and the Windermere
Town Council will vote on
the request next Tuesday at
its regular meeting.
Then the two staffs will
have an opportunity to meet
again in the same format.
A meeting between the
BCC and Town Council,
which concludes the conflict
resolution, will be scheduled
prior to May 1.
Lalchandani said the county
would look at the options the
town suggested and would
consider another meeting.
Following the meeting,
Attorney Drage told The West
Orange Times the people in
Isleworth "could make this
go away" by rejecting the
annexation.
He acknowledged that the
conflict resolution process
is a precursor to a potential
lawsuit, but added, "We now
have some things we can talk
about."
When the Times asked
attorney Osborne if he
thought the meeting had been
productive, he responded,
"Maybe; time will tell."

'A Home for a Hero' golf tournament

benefits disabled veteran Joshua Cope


The sixth annual charity golf
tournament, sponsored by the
Windermere Country Club,
was a fund-raiser to benefit
West Orange Habitat For
Humanity's special "Home
at Last Project." Habitat had
launched a $300,000 drive to
build a home for disabled Iraq
veteran Sgt. Joshua Cope, his
wife, Erica, and their 2-year-
old daughter, Laney, and a
closing is set for May on a

flight and make it a special
event, winding up with a
"water bomb" ceremony
customary for airline pilots
on their last flight.
The Copes stayed with
Erica's sister in Kissimmee,
and a number of family
members were in attendance
at the event. They included
Joshua's parents, Philip and
Linda Cope, his grandparents,
retired Lt. Col. and Mrs.
Norman Hayes, and Erica's
parents, Calvin Dahl and
Lana Mangrum.
After registration and a
continental breakfast, the
four-person shotgun start
scramble teed off at 9 a.m.
and a luncheon was served at
2 p.m. In the interim, guests
had an opportunity to meet
the Cope family and bid on
silent auction items.
A brief program included
a welcome from Tim Levin,
chairman of the club's board
of directors, comments from
Marc Giuseppe, club manager,
and Bill Criswell, Home at
Last project chairman. Lt.
Col. Hayes spoke for the
Cope family.
Golf committee chairman

From our archives

Old Times


Newly elected Mayor John Rees (left) presented Jack Quesinberry with a plaque at
last Thursday's commission meeting honoring the outgoing mayor for his 16 years in
office.

Winter Garden owes thanks to Mayor Quesinberry


When voters elected Jack Quesinberry
to his first term as mayor in 1992, they
never could have imagined how the city
would grow and change by the time he left
office. The road to City Hall was paved
with tumbleweeds when Quesinberry
took office, and today downtown Winter
Garden is the cultural heart of West Or-
ange County with a reborn commercial,
theatrical and historical district.

Dramatic growth would have come to
Winter Garden regardless of who was
mayor, but Quesinberry's leadership
guided the city through changes that
could have stripped Winter Garden of its
identity. Instead, Winter Garden's sense
of community and the level of involve-
ment by its residents are much greater
than 16. years ago.

A large amount of credit for Winter
Garden's success over the past 16 years
is also due to people like City Manager
Michael Bollhoefer, his predecessor, Hol-
lis Holden, fellow commission members,
city staff and the many members of orga-


nizations that have been dedicated to im-
proving Winter Garden's quality of life.
Quesinberry, though, will be remembered
as the figure who brought all those people
and entities together to carry Winter Gar-
den into the 21st century as a small city
of the future which has a firm grip on its
heritage.

As we've seen over the years, small-
town politics can be as nasty as any big
city in the country. Through contentious
commission meetings and intensely heat-
ed campaigns against some opponents
who sought to take Winter Garden poli-
tics into the gutter, Quesinberry always
took the high road and carried himself
with dignity and class. He weathered
criticisms and overcame a briefly vola-
tile period to hand over to his successor,
Mayor John Rees, a stronger and more
peaceful city.

Rees said it best last week by stating,
"All of us in Winter Garden live in a bet-
ter city because of his efforts and hard
work."

A7th birthday sale is being held by the "Grand 5

Ladies' silk dresses are on sale for $2.29 and men's

Lakeview High School graduation of the Class of
1933 stresses the economy. Diplomas will consist

occasion be of as simple a nature as possible.

With the development of Westlake Manor, Win-
ter Garden residents and perspective residents of the

Central Florida. It is located north of Tilden Street
and bounded on the east and west by Lakeview

orange grove and most of the trees have been left
in the area providing fruit and shade.
35 years ago
A ground-breaking was held for the new Tri-City
Shopping Center in Winter Garden. Publix Super-
markets has announced that it will open a Food
World market in the new shopping center. Other
tenants will include Eckerd Drugs, Griffin's Men's
Wear, White Auto Store and Burger Chef.

The Winter Garden Times has announced that
Michael Hubis has been named advertising man-
ager. He comes to this area from Steubenville, Ohio,
where he was associated with Tri-State Publishing
Company.
"Neither rain nor sleet..." nor backward ad-
dresses... The Winter Garden Times arrived at the
Ocoee Post Office last week with the addresses
printed upside down and backwards. Our "folding
crew" must have dropped a tray of stencils and
gotten them turned around. But undaunted, those
P.O. "swift couriers" got a mirror and were able to
decipher all the addresses and deliver the papers
on time.

A production of South Pacific has opened at
Lakeview Junior High School. Lisa Reagan has
the role of Nellie Forbush; Cade Nabors is Emile
DeBecque; Donna Prague plays Bloody Mary; and
Wade Griffin is Lt. Joseph Cable.
A string of community events were held to
mark the official opening of the Orange County
Civic/Convention Center, including a concert by
the Boston Pops. At the official ribbon cutting, the
invocation was given by the Rev. Robert Wheat of
Oakland Presbyterian Church and Dixie Atkinson
of Winter Garden christened the sound system with
a solo rendition of the national anthem.

Letters to the editor

Commissioner Brummer alerts readers


Editor,
Cue the ominous drum beat that built tension in
the movie Jaws as it foretold the imminent attack
of the huge shark star of the action drama. Why?
Because just when you thought it was safe for your
septic system, evil is trying to make you pay.
Repeatedly I have written The West Orange
Times and contained the details of the Department
of Health's (DOH) effort to unnecessarily require
expensive and ineffective aerobic onsite wastewater
treatment systems. For several years, homeowners,
residents, scientists, technicians, property owners,
community volunteers and Realtors have attempted
to have DOH modify its proposed rule to conform
to the available science.
Recently, a renewed and strenuous effort has
been undertaken by elected officials to support
the DOH bureaucracy over the interests of their
constituents.
The objective is to protect the Wekiva River and
its contributing springs. More and more evidence is
found that performance-based septic systems will
not help reach that objective. Science projects that
the proposed DOH rule be ineffective at protect-
ing the river.
I recently received an e-mail by the Environmen-
tal Health Administrator of the Charlotte County,
Fla., Department of Health. The administrator
speaks of the county ordinance requiring Aerobic
Treatment Units as "...the biggest nightmare and


unjust burden on the homeowners." Practice indi-
cates that the DOH rule will be expensive.
Rep. Bryan Nelson has introduced a bill in the
Florida Legislature that addresses septic systems
statewide. HB 975 is a complete package. The bill
considers many of the important items in septic sys-
tems and in protecting the Wekiva. HB 975 includes
the text to protect homeowners that unanimously
passed out of the Florida House of Representatives
in 2006 but was thwarted by a Florida senator.
Is HB 975 perfect? Probably not. Will it protect
the Wekiva ecology while giving homeowners in
the Wekiva Study Area a chance to not lose their
homes? Definitely!
What causes elected officials to want implemen-
tation of an ineffective, expensive rule? Wanting
implementation to the extent of encouraging Gov.
Charlie Crist's staff to require implementation?
I cannot answer those questions. Elected officials.
desiring implementation of an expensive and inef-
fective rule to the extent of calling the governor's
office defies logic. The fact that elected officials
would work against the interests of their constitu-
ents and the environment defies belief, but it is
happening.
Let's hope that elected officials are as ineffec-
tive in their efforts as aerobic septic systems are in
protecting the environment.

Winter Garden unveils cutting-edge Web I_'E U 2 M -Ec

site to attract economic development fag.S.PE.MEsDIINE


By Michael Laval

Those who attend the city of
Winter Garden's Realtor Round-
table event this Thursday, March
6, will see the city roll out a new
Web site designed to showcase
local commercial property.
Dolores Key, city economic
development director, said the
site, wwvw.WinterGardenFLPros-
pector.com, speeds up and sim-
plifies the process of attracting
businesses to the area and aides
in site selection for expanding or
rclo-.diiin companies. The site,
which can also be found by vis-
iting the city's main Web page
(www.cwgdn.com), is geared
toward site selectors, who work
1,1i iiimp.ii to find ideal loca-
tions for expansion.
"It helps commercial property
owners sell to key site selectors,
not just locally but nationally,"
Key said, "This is much more
cost effective for the city than
doing advertisements in several
publications."
SThe importance of providing
quality property and site selec-
tion information is critical, Key
added, because more than 90
percent of initial site selection
screening is now done using the
Internet.
The new site uses Internet
Geographic Information System
(GIS) Planning mapping technol-
ogy to provide layers of informa-
tion such as available properties
size, use, cost, development
incentives and contact informa-
tion to efficiently answer the
main questions that businesses
have when involved in the site-
selection analysis process.
Recognizing that cities are
often overlooked for new job
investments by not providing
qualify information online, Key'
proposed using the GIS technol-
ogy to City Manager Michael
Bollhoefer, who acquired ap-
proval from the City Commis-
sion in November for $40,000 to
fund the project.
Visitors to the site will get a
detailed view of available build-
ings-and land, market demo-

mapping technology. Users can
zoom in and out or scroll across
a map of West Orange County
to identify information and view
geographic layers of information
such as aerial photos of proper-
ties, community redevelopment
areas, police and fire stations,
land use and bodies of water.
Demographic reports can be
created to analyze the area's
labor force, education levels,
consumer spending and more.
Businesses are also mapped by
industry, showing their distribu-
tion and concentrations through-
out the region.
"The demographic informa-
tion provided is much more than
what you'd find on a Realtor's
site," Key said.
Site selectors, Key added, will
be able to quickly tailor maps
and reports to suit their needs
and access data that would nor-
mally take weeks to collect and


thousands of dollars to obtain
from specialty data researchers.
The GIS proprietary Web site
is used by only a few cities in
Florida, Key said, but has been
very successful in many cities
nationwide.
"The strategic alliances that
GIS has will draw site selectors
to the Winter Garden Web site,"
Key explained. "Everything is
about strategic alliances in eco-
nomic development."
This Thursday's Realtor
Roundtable will take place at
6:30 p,m. in the Commission
Chambers at City Hall, 251 W.
Plant St. Real estate professionals
who attend the meeting will re-
ceive user names and passwords
to gain access to the GIS site and
begin listing properties.
Key hopes the new Web site
sends a message to potential
business locators Winter

business, online.

Annual St. Francis charity cabaret this Sunday


The 3rd Annual St. Francis
House Cabaret will take place
this Sunday, March 9, at the
Margeson Theater in Orlando.
Realtor David Dorman, sales
manager for Century 21 Pro-
fessional Group in Ocoee, is

Due to popular demand,
Dorman said, the charity event
expanded this year by moving
to a larger venue and showcas-
ing more local entertainers. All
proceeds will benefit the St.
Francis House homeless shelter
and group homes, which have
provided transitional living for
homeless men affected by HIV-


and AIDS-related diseases for
the past 19 years.
The evening will feature live
entertainment, hors d'oeuvres,

and desserts. In addition to pro-
ducing the cabaret fund-raiser,
Dorman will perform as a fea-
tured singer. Local radio person-

HAPPY BANKING
Before you search for the perfect
home, the search for the perfect loan
should be well under way. There are
other factors you should consider
besides the interest rate, points and
loan fees when you are shopping for
a loan, such as the lender's general
reputation.
A professional Realtor can provide
you with the names of several mort-
gage lenders and can help you com-
pare their programs. Some lenders
may have great rates, but may have
very conservative standards for
qualifying customers. Others may
be more willing to consider people
who are -i i ,im, ii qualified or have
less-than-perfect credit histories.
Some lenders specialize in certain
types of mortgages. Some have
local underwriters and can process
loans quickly while others may need
extra time to process paperwork.
The ordinary consumer deals with
only a few mortgage lenders over a
lifetime, but Realtors deal with many

Winter Garden


\



The Bible Quiz team at Calvary Christian School is competing in the national competition.
Team members are, I-r: front, Kelsey Davies, Joshua Austin; back, David Tyrrell, Deven
Davies and Daniel Tyrrell and assistant coach Joanna Tyrrell.


Calvary going to
Five students at Calvary
Christian School are headed
to the nationals after taking
.first place at the state level in
the Bible Quiz competition.
David Tyrrell, Daniel Tyrrell,
Deven Davies, Kelsey Davies
and Joshua Austin have been
memorizing chapters of the
Bible and, more specifically,
from Romans and James, for
the Bible Quiz ministry.
Students in elementary
through high school at the Win-
ter Garden private school rarely
memorize fewer than 10 chap-


national Bible Quiz competition


ters every year. The quizzing
competition has inspired most
of the quizzers to memorize all
of the quiz material every year.
And two of the quizzers who
have memorized all of this
year's material are under 10
years old. These two children
were so motivated by the com-
petition of quizzing that they
successfully memorized whole
books of the Bible before they
could read.
The Bible Quiz team at Cal-
vary recently took first place
at the Colorado Invitational


Bible Quiz Tournament, de-
feating Pleasant View, Ky.,
the top team in the country. In
fact, Calvary's team is the only
one in the country to outscore
Pleasant View at any tourna-
ment in three years.
On Feb. 25, they won at
the American Association of
Christian Schools Bible Quiz
competition held at Clearwater
Christian College.
The regular six-month quiz
season runs from August
through February with local
monthly competitions. There
are optional opportunities to
travel, and this is one of the
greatest motivations to memo-
rize more, as the quizzers want
to compete on a national level.
Leading the Calvary Bible
Quiz team are head coach Kim
Davies, assistant coach Joanna
Tyrrell and Nannette Austin.
They are willing to help other
church or school ministries start
their own Bible Quiz team and
are interested in interviewing
other youth who might want
to join one of the teams. Call
- Austin at 407-877-3881 or Kim
Davies at 407-928-5549.
The 2008-09 quiz cycle will
focus on the books of Mark,
Jude and 1, 1 and III John.

VFW celebrates
Home Awareness
Week
A child hopes for a warm
bed, friends at school and a
safe place to play with them.
A mother worries about mak-
ing ends meet and keeping her
children safe. A veteran's last
thought, whether at the end of
the day or the end of his life,
is for the welfare of his fam-
ily. What these three have in
common is the VFW National
Home for Children.
Founded in 1925, the VFW
National Home for Children
is nestled on 629 acres near
Eaton Rapids, Mich. 'It was
envisioned as a home for the
spouses and children of de-,
ceased and disabled veterans.
The home receives no state or
federal assistance but, instead,
depends on donations from
members of the VFW and la-
dies auxiliaries for its contin-
ued success.
Any veteran or his or her
family in need of youth as-
sistance can call the home at
517-663-1521.

Teal adds 4th book to Bath Pond series


The latest book in Lowell
Teal's Bath Pond series is now
available. Promise to Poppy
is the latest in his effort to
chronicle the people and ideas
that have influenced Florida's
pioneers since the Great De-

has always highlighted Cen-
tral Florida.
Ed Helvey, CEO of Quan-
tum Business Concepts, said:
"Promise to Poppy is but
another rung on a ladder of
life that Lowell Teal has cre-
ated with his Bath Pond se-
ries of novels. The Bath Pond
books revolve around a flow-
ing theme that includes hard
work, ethical behavior, integ-
rity, family values, tenacity
and generosity."
Anyone living in the area
more than 50 years ago might
remember "the great swim-
ming hole of all time in Bath
Pond," Teal said. Bath Pond
itself was located a few miles
south of Winter Garden and
was the favorite place to bathe
for farm workers atthe end of
the day.
"It no longer exists, giving
way to development, which
destroyed a grand asset that
many old-timers held dear to
their hearts," Teal said.
Promise to Poppy is sub-
titled "a grandson's promise
fulfilled." In the story, readers
meet funny musician Derek
Davidson and his unique per-
sonality. The theme and al-

Empowerment conference
for young men March 21-23


Buck the boxer was found at Oakland Avenue Charter
School. The staff hopes to find a new home for him once
he is healthy.

Students learning compassion,
long-term commitment from stray


By Amy Quesinberry

Buck the dog has found his
way into the hearts of the stu-
dents and staff at Oakland Av-
enue Charter School. No one
knows where he came from, but
they do know where they want
him to end up in a loving
home with a caring family.
This skinny white dog that
looked part pit bull was found
wandering around the campus
two weeks ago. In an effort to
keep students (and the dog)
safe, staff members corralled
the dog into a fenced area and
called Orange County Animal
Control.
Because of his condition -
skittish, full of fleas and with
bloody paws that indicated in-
juries and the fact that he
could be part pit bull, county
officials said he would likely
be destroyed if they picked
him up.
To spare his life, school staff
located someone who would
temporarily keep the dog and
take him to a veterinarian. The
vet determined Buck as he
is now called was neglected
and underweight and, among
other ailments, had heart
worms.
And the students and staff
were surprised to learn that
Buck-was a boxer.

Relay For Life team
Next Community Church is

to www.events.cancer.org/
rflwestorangefl and find the
church's team link or mail them
to Next Community Church,.
P.O. Box 748, Oakland 34760.,
The Relay is an opportunity
for the community to come to-
gether to fight cancer.

Seniors adopt Marine
The West Orange Baptist Se-
niors have joined the Adopt A
Marine program and are asking
community members to fill out
a card or write a letter and take
it to the church office, 200 Tubb
St., Oakland. The seniors will
take care of the rest.
For details on sending let-
ters and care packages, call the
church at 407-656-9749.

Scouts can
volunteer at ONP
The Oakland Nature Preserve
is on the lookout for volunteer
Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. The

ing toward their Eagle Scout
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
visitors. Those interested can
contact ONP at 407-905-0054.


The school has used the ex-
perience with Buck as one of
the lessons in its Character Ed-
ucation Curriculum, teaching
the students that owning a pet
is a long-term commitment of
time, energy, love and money.
The vet bills were costly, and
the daily cost of Buck's care is
steadily rising and this has
.placed a severe financial bur-
den on the foster family. The
Oakland staff has been helping
contribute to the cost of his care
through donations.
And the students are doing
their share as well. The school
is sponsoring a Jeans Day this
Friday, Feb. 29, and, for a fee,
students can wear denim in-
stead of their uniform pants.
This money will go toward
Buck's care.
The school is also soliciting
assistance from the communi-
ty. To make a donation to help
offset Buck's expenses, send
checks to Oakland Avenue
Charter School, Attn: Buck's
Fund, P.O. Box 949, Oakland,
FL 34760.
To offer Buck a home once
he is healthy, send a letter of
interest to the same address but
to Attn: Buck's home.
The students and staff at the
school plan to keep in touch .
with Buck's new family and
track his success.

Community choir sings out at theater gala


The Garden Community
Choir of West Orange began
with the vision of building
community through song, a
vision sparked through the
Winter Garden Heritage Foun-
dation's Garden Theatre and
West Orange High School Cho-
ral Director Jeff Redding. And
in the eight months since the
choir's inception, the vision has
been fulfilled as more than 60
members of the West Orange
Community an ensemble
of all ages from 19 to 83, from
students and teachers to pastors
and business men and women
- gather every Monday to
share their love of music.
Members who make up the
choir include WOHS choir
alumni and parents and other
adults who wanted to continue
a choir experience in a quality

-I Love being in a choir with
'cotnui'.tunrit members I have
known my entire life," said
Stephanie Abell, a lifelong
Winter Garden resident. "The
choir contains two to three gen-
erations of musicians from this
area. People just love music
and also relish the opportunity
to work with Jeff Redding."
"This is a community of
people who may not ever cross
paths, of all different ages, but
have one thing in common:
music," said Ledean Williams,
pianist for the choir, whose past
experiences include commu-
nity choirs in Tallahassee and
Orlando. "Jeff is one director
who can bring all these things
together an all-inclusive,
non-auditioned choir and
make it a quality experience
for everyone."
Included in this blend of
musicians are former music
teachers, such as Marian Wag-
ster of Winter Garden, who was
Abell's music teacher at Dillard
Street Elementary years ago.
She recently retired from Chain
of Lakes Middle School and
taught many years at Lakeview
Middle. Wagster enjoys sing-
ing in the Garden Community
Choir with many of her former

on to sing professionally, and
knowing these students have
had both herself and Redding
as teachers.
"I loved feeding music stu-
dents to Jeff, because I know
what he could do with those
voices. We love seeing former
students succeed. We've had
great kids that have gone on
to study in Paris and perform
on Broadway tours, and we've
also had kids who have gone
into the business side of mu-
sic.
"I am enjoying singing with
former students and with par-
ents of students that I have
taught," Wagster added.
The choir also represents
several members from churches
from the West Orange commu-
nity, including Oakland Pres-
byterian, First Baptist Winter
Garden, First United Methodist
Winter Garden, People of Faith
Lutheran Church and Wind-
ermere Community Church.
"One of the reasons this choir
was started was to expand the
vision of unity in the communi-

Resurrection church dedicates
addition of pastoral center


Resurrection Catholic Church
in Winter Garden has received
blessings on its new addition
to the pastoral center. Bishop
Thomas Wenski celebrated the
11 a.m. Mass at the church Feb.
24, and afterward he blessed
the addition, inaugurating this
16,000-square-foot building with
eight multi-purpose rooms and a
large hall.
The hall was dedicated to Dr.
Albert Gleason, in whose medi-
cal clinic the first masses were
offered in 1959. As the congre-
gation grew, Tanner Auditorium
(now Tanner Hall) was used
for Sunday Mass. Resurrection
became a full-fledged parish in
1967. Soon after, the first struc-
ture was built on West Colonial
Drive using plans for a Boy Scout
chapel that would accommodate
200 people. This was later torn
down to make way for the State
Road 429 Western Beltway.
The Diocese of Orlando estab-
lished a larger facility on State
Road 535 south of Colonial in
1991.
Father Alex Dalpiaz received
the certificate of occupancy for
the addition last December, 40
years after the parish was estab-
lished.
The full history was printed
in the dedication booklet avail-
able during the blessing of the
building.
After the blessing, the pastor,
Father Dalpiaz, c.s., said: "Since
those early days, there have been
many accomplishments begin-
ning with a small seed of a few
fervent Catholic families to the
present 3,600 families ,that in-
clude many Hispanics and a siz-
able number of Brazilians. The
total cost of the new additions,
including furnishings, etc., is
$2.5 million. Thanks to the sup-
port of parishioners and many


anonymous donors, the goal,
this goal, will be met, finalizing
the Capital Campaign Building
Fund, 'Growing in Faith thru
Unity,' by late 2008."


choir leader. "It gives me great
satisfaction to help continue to
expand the vision of communi-
ty that appreciates and respects
all people."
The choir has had different
opportunities to reach out to the
community through music, in-
cluding the Winter Garden Mu-
sic Fest, the West Orange High
School Christmas Concert and
the gala opening of the Garden
Theatre last weekend. At the.
gala event, the choir prepared
several Broadway excerpts,
including The Wizard of Oz
and Everything's Coming Up


Roses.
"I love the feeling of fam-
ily that this community has,"
Wagster said. "When we get
together and the whole group
is working hard together, it's
great. It's wonderful that any-
one in the community who
loves music can be part of this
experience."
"After our performance at
the Music Fest, my old piano
teacher came up to me and
told me how proud she was of
us," Abell said. "This is a big
community pride thing for all
of us." .

letic Hall of Fame will honor
its Class of 2008 inductees this

Rene Campbell, Darlene Reed,
Glen Forsythe and Franz Job-
son.
Worsham served as WOHS's
first basketball coach and later

During his tenure as coach,
the Warriors grew into a Met-
ro Conference power. He also
hired the school's first female
athletic director Highland.
As athletic director from
1985-1990, Highland added
new sports to WOHS, such
as girls soccer and girls vol-

press box announcing Warrior
football, games Matheison

come icons and fixtures with
WOHS football.


Fox played quarterback
for the Warrior football team
from 1985-87 and.was a full-
scholarship player at Purdue
and later at the University of
Florida.
Shaw is remembered as a
total athlete at WOHS. He


played tight end on the foot-
ball team, in addition to play-
ing basketball and track. He
received a full scholarship to
Duke University.
Campbell put West Orange
girls slowpitch softball on the
map and earned First Team

Reed was a great all-around
athlete from 1984-87. She
earned all-county honors in
both track and cross-country.
She also became the first fe-
male athlete to play on the
WOHS boys soccer team.


Forsythe and Jobson pro-
vided the offensive spark that
gave the West Orange boys
soccer team a 46-18-10 re-
cord from 1985-88. Jobson
received all-state recognition
in both soccer and track and a
scholarship to the University
of Pittsburg. Jobson also went
on to run for the Jamaica na-
tional Olympic team.
Forsythe was all-state in
both track and soccer and was
awarded a full scholarship to
Arkansas State.

Warrior water polo rolls to 4 straight wins


The West Orange High var-
sity boys and girls water polo
teams both improved their re-
cords to 4-1 with four consecu-
tive victories last week over
Wekiva, Ocoee, University
and Apopka.
"Our young, ambitious
teams are looking to improve
on last season," said Coach
Jean Legere. "We are proud
of them for their hard work
and dedication. These up-and-
coming players are looking to
make an impact in district play
this year."
Last Thursday's victories by
both Warrior teams were total
team efforts, Legere added.
The boys clobbered Wekiva
25-2, while the Lady Warriors
won 12-1. Jake Carter led the
boys with 8 goals, followed.
by Cody Canavan (6) and
Matt Walsh (5). Junior Coo-
per Tisch added his first goal
of the season. Stefanie Carrier
led the girls with 7 goals, and
fellow senior Tiffannie Wil-
liams scored twice.
West Orange goalie Adria
Bell saved 8 of 9 shots on
goal in the girls team's 13-1
win over rival Ocoee. Carrier


stood out again with 8 goals on
11 shot attempts.
"The girls came out strong
and dominated from beginning
to end," said WOHS Coach
Brian Martin.
The boys match was a fierce
battle from the opening whis-
tle. All seven Warrior starters
were sophomores. Jake Smith,
Carter and Jonathan Holmgren
combined for 10 steals, and
Jonathan Singh scored the
game-winning goal with less
than 10 seconds on the clock.
"The boys showed tremen-
dous character coming from
six goals down and pulling
out an amazing victory," Mar-
tin said.
West Orange opened last
Saturday's double-header with
victories over University. The
Lady Warriors won 11-2 with
Bell making 19 saves on 21
shots on goal. Carrier led the
team in scoring, while Caitlin
Ramsey knocked in her first
goal of the season., Stephanie
Gainey and Caitlin Bloom led
the defense with 6 steals each,
followed by co-captaih Katie
Macqueen (3) and Ashley Coi-
pel (2).


"The ladies are developing
their skills with heads-up de-
fense and great communication
in the pool," said Coach Jenny
Martin.
Freshman Robert Sheppard's
first goal of the season came
in the boys team's 23-12 win
over University. The Warriors
pulled away after reaching a
3-3 tie early in the game. Six
Warriors scored goals, and co-
captain Smith led the defense
with 8 steals.
Saturday's second half of
the double-header took place
against Apopka. After a tough
and physical regulation game,
the Lady Warriors fought
through two overtimes and a
sudden-death period, which
ended with Carrier nailing the
game-winning goal. Seven
West Orange girls combined
for 19 steals, and Bell blocked
22 shots on goal.
Intense defense was also key
in the boys team's 20-14 win.
Alex Litz blocked 14 shots,
and Smith, Walsh, Holmgren
and Carter produced 14 steals.
Carter and Canavan led the of-
fense with 11 and 9 goals, re-
spectively.

Field trip to St. Augustine
The fourth-grade students
from Spring Lake Elementary
went to St. Augustine recent-
ly. I had lots of fun, but there
were three things that had all
my attention. The three places
were the Old School House,
the blacksmith and the fort, El
Castillo de San Marcos.
First, my class went to the
Old School House, which had
a dungeon. They had a little
play about how the students
went to school and learned.


For example, one or two stu-
dents would use the dunce
cap if they got into trouble
and would also have to sit
on a stool with the cap on.
The lucky students who went
to school had to pay or bring
wood to the head master. The
teacher lived upstairs with his
family.
Next, we went to see the
blacksmith. The people of St.
Augustine from long ago used
the blacksmith to make their
tools and shoe their horses.


We got to see how they made
nails, and my teacher got one
to bring back for our class-
room.
The last place we visited
was the old fort. The Castillo
de San Marcos is 35 feet long
and really big. The guide told
us they made the fort from
400,000 blocks of coquina
shells. People had to use fire
to keep warm.
We had a great time.

Jump Rope for Heart
Windermere Prep students
in preschool through grade 6
recently put their efforts into
helping cure heart disease
and stroke by participating in
the American Heart Associa-
tion's annual Jump Rope for
Heart and Hoops for Heart
programs.
Students collected dona-
tions from friends and fam-


ily members who sponsored
their efforts in the event.
Students in PreK-3 through
second grade participated
in the Jump Rope for Heart,
and those in third through
sixth grade tackled Hoops for
Heart.
Contributions are still be-
ing tallied from this year's
events. Last year WPS stu-
dents collected enough to


take local and county honors
and also rank as the leading
school in Florida among the
schools that participated in a
combined Jump Rope/Hoops
for Heart program
WPS also won the distinc-
tion of being ranked the No.
1 dual school in the entire
Southeast region and 11th
nationally in this combined
category.


St. Andrew Catholic School held its Geography Bee recently for 4th through 8th grades.
It's sponsored by the National Geographic Society. The winner of the bee will compete
in the state bee and then in the national bee that will be held in May. Pictured is Steve
Gibson, geography teacher, with winner Paul Thomas and runners-up Logan Johnson

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


Bejoyfid alwajys;- -, ....-* -,' 1;,.. give thanks
in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you
in Christ Jesus. I Thessalonians 5: 16:18

Would it surprise you to know that God's will
for you is to be joyful always? Based on this
verse it is crystal clear that God intends for you
to have deep profound joy. Why then is there so
much about suffering, discipline and struggle in
the Christian walk?
On the surface, it seems like a "Don't worry,
be happy" mentality-Life is going to be hard
but God wants you to be happy anyway: Gut it
up; tighten your belt, smile like a good soldier!!!
God's not after your happiness, only your holi-
ness. Many a believer through the centuries
(including myself) have taken that stance toward
life arid found it missing something.
Thankfully, that's not the way it really works.
Let's go back to our chief example: Jesus. In
Hebrews, we read that we should "fix our eyes
on Jesus...who for the joy set before Him en-

dured the cross..." (Heb 12:2) Sounds like a
little bit of delayed gratification. He didn't suf-
fer miserably in some kind of masochistic glee-
it was hard and horrible. But, He knew the pay-
off and that gave Him joy in it.
What if this verse is giving us the way to get
there? I've known a few people that have genu-
inely tried to pray continually-through the
dishes and the commotion of life-people that
find something to thank God for in everything
from severed fingers to new responsibilities. I've
had moments when it has clicked for me too and
I am truly joyful-not just a little happy, but "got
the giggles, ROFLOL" gleeful. Truly, "In His
presence IS the fullness of joy." (Ps 16:11) 1
can't say that I can do it all the time, but when it
happens, I can truly see how much joy it gives.
I can feel how much joy it gives to Him too. It's
not easy. It's worth it. It makes everything else
easy.
