Butler Bay approves annexation; Windermere starts over with Isleworth


While Butler Bay
approved
annexation into
Windermere last
week, the vote
could still face
county opposition.

By Kathy Aber

Windermere's growth strat--
egy, enlarging its tax base
through annexation, is mired'
in legal debate and potential
court actions.


The Town Council initiated
the annexation of two areas,
Butler Bay, Unit 1 and Isle-
worth, in November.
Before residents in the
communities could vote to
approve or disapprove this
move, Orange County stepped
in to oppose Windermere's
annexation attempt.
Town and county officials
met Feb. 29 to begin a conflict
resolution process required by
law when two governmental
entities disagree.
The process would require a
second meeting of the elected


officials of both governments
prior to March 26.
At the initial get together,
the town and county agreed
to extend the preliminary
meeting process until May 1,
with the understanding that
a meeting of the elected offi-
cials would be scheduled dur-
ing that period. However, this
verbal agreement required the
formal approval of the County
Commission and the Town
Council.
The Orange County Board
of County Commissioners
passed a resolution extend-


Winter Garden considers maintenance

standards for downtown businesses,


By Michael Laval

Businesses in Winter Garden's downtown
district could soon have to comply with new
standards of appearance.
The City Commission unanimously ap-
proved the first reading of a proposed ordi-
nance last Thursday that could establish a
minimum maintenance code for businesses
throughout the downtown area. The ordinanc-
es could be passed at a second public hearing
set for March 27.
Prior to last week's commission meeting,
Winter Garden's Downtown Merchants Guild
also voted unanimously to pledge its support
for the proposed measure, according to City
Manager Michael Bollhoefer.
"Many other communities with historical
downtown have developed minimum main-
tenance standards that require property own-
ers to keep their buildings in good repair,"
Bollhoefer told the commission.
Currently, he explained, Winter Garden
doesn't have any code to ensure that awnings
remain free of holes, mold or faded colors


or that buildings are kept free of dry rot or
chipped and faded paint.
Business owners will be expected to main-
tain building foundations, exterior walls,
roofs, structural supports, windows, exterior
doors, awnings and any. other exterior ele-
ments. The code would also apply to parking
lots, walkways, buffers, fences, walls, signs,
landscaping, plumbing and more.
If the ordinance is passed, the new down-
town maintenance standards will fall under
the jurisdiction of the city Code Enforcement
Board.
In other business, the elected officials:
passed an ordinance allowing for bill-
boards to be relocated from West Colonial
Drive and Dillard Street to less obtrusive
sites.
passed a resolution vacating and abandon-
ing the pedestrian easements at Lake Cove
Pointe subdivision.
approved a 10-year agreement with con-
ditions with Foundation Academy for the
school's new campus concession stand and
athletic field.

ing the mediation process un-
til May 1 during its meeting
March 4.
During the Town Council's
regular meeting last Tuesday,
attorney Bill Osborne, who is
handling this dispute for the
town, asked the council to
adopt the same resolution.
In his presentation, Osborne
described the two-hour meet-
ing with the county staff on
Feb. 29, explaining that after
both parties outlined their po-
sitions there wasn't .enough
time to resolve the differenc-
es.


He advised the council to
approve the extension resolu-
tion since, otherwise, the two
boards would be required to
meet prior to March 26 and
the only date offered by the
County Commission was
March 18.
The county objects to the an-
nexations because it argues the
fire protection and emergency
services proposed by the town
would be inadequate. Wind-
ermere disputes this objection.

Link 442 service
begins Monday,
March 31.

By Amy Quesinberry

The Lynx bus service is
crucial for many people who
don't have alternate means
of transportation. Getting to
work or school on time is im-
portant, but so is the opportu-
nity to meet a friend for lunch
or do some shopping.
Now that the Winter Gar-
den Village at Fowler Groves
has opened, giving West. Or-
ange County residents anoth-
er place to shop, the Central
Florida Regional Transpor-
tation Authority has created
Link 442, which will connect
the mall on Daniels Road in
Winter Garden to the West
Oaks Mall in Ocoee. The
route includes a stop at West
Orange High School, also in
Winter Garden.
"It's not a cost to local
taxpayers," said Matthew P.
Friedman, Lynx's manager of
media relations.
He said the Sembler Co.,
which developed the mall in
Winter Garden, has agreed
to pay $300,000 over two


years to bring the bus service
to that part of Daniels Road.
This matches the $300,000
contributed through the fed-
eral Job Access and Reverse
Commute program.
The first bus will travel
this route Monday, March 31.
Lynx is holding an official
celebration later th4t week,
April 3 at 10 a.m. It takes
place at The Crossings at the
mall in Winter Garden.
The 15-mile round trip will
be repeated every hour start-
ing at 5:25 a.m. and continu-
ing until 8:25 p.m. Monday
through Saturday. The basic
route takes riders from the
West Oaks Mall to Health
Central in Ocoee and West
Orange High School in Win-
ter Garden before ending up
at the Winter Garden Village.
The route circles around the
mall and continues back to
West Oaks.
Lynx will ,maintain the
route for two years, Friedman
said, making adjustments
along the way. And although
there are plans to revamp the
entire Lynx bus system next
year, "This route isn't going
away," he added.
"It's giving people the op-
portunity to work."

Olympia High's Molly Sidwell honored

by Orange County Counseling Assn.


Molly Sidwell, SAFE coor-
dinator at Olympia High, was
honored as the Support Person
of the Year recently by the Or-
ange County Counseling As-
sociation at its annual awards
breakfast.
The association recognizes
school administrators and stu-
dent services personnel who
have done an outstanding job
in meeting students' needs.
Sidwell, who has been with
Orange County Public Schools
for 20 years, said she was not
aware that she was being nom-
inated for the award by the
Olympia High guidance coun-
selor, Tamara Pettengell.
Sidwell said, "It means a
great deal to me because I
love what I do and I love these
kids."
As a SAFE coordinator since
OHS opened seven years ago,
Sidwell describes her role as
"saving lives and putting out
fires." She coordinates peer
mediation, a process that al-
lows students who are having
difficulty with other students
to resolve the matter without
violence.
Every two years, she ar-
ranges to have a mock DUI
demonstration that brings
the consequences of drinking
and driving to life for the stu-
dents.
"You can talk to them about
'Don't drink and drive, don't
do drugs,' but when they see
something like that, if affects
them more because it's very
traumatic it's very true to
life," said Sidwell.
Every year, Sidwell orga-
nizes a drive to obtain prom
dresses and suits for disadvan-
taged students and sponsors a
family in need during .Christ-
mas. In a letter recommending
Sidwell for the award, Olym-
pia teacher Sylvia Leschnik
d'Torres wrote, "She never
seems too busy to accept one
more opportunity to make a
difference in someone's life."
One of the more recent pro-
grams that Sidwell has brought
to Olympia is Challenge Day,
which is an event where stu-
dents cross boundaries and
reach out to classmates they
might not otherwise speak to
during the course of their day.
She also brings in people from

Counseling Association.


the community to participate.
"My big goal is for people
to see that teenagers aren't all
bad that they're trying to
do the right thing and they get
a bad rap in the media," said
Sidwell:
By being a sounding board
for students with family prob-
lems, Sidwell's job often can
be emotionally draining. Her


faith and family keep her life
balanced, however.
She said: "I have a really
good heart for the Lord I
can tell you that and that
helps me. I have a great family
of three kids of my own and
a wonderful husband, and I go
home and I pretty much turn
it off there because I'm busy
with them."

Chamber president thanks all who helped with Big Orange Ball


Editor:
What do you say when you go to a new event
just to check it out and find yourself having so
much fun you cannot wait until next year for it
to happen all over again? You tell people. That
is the buzz around town about the success of the
West Orange Chamber's Big Orange Ball.. .A
Dance Off.
It is always a little scary to come up with a
new event in hopes that it will be a successful
fund-raiser and an enjoyable social event. That
is exactly what the Big Orange Ball (we fondly
call it BOBADO) turned out to be. With the
invaluable help of the events committee, our
volunteer dancers and the support of our spon-
sors, the Chamber team worked diligently to
pull this event together. The Rosen Centre pro-
vided a great venue with outstanding food and a
center-stage dance floor for the dance-off.
Thank you to our presenting sponsors, DeW-
itt Excavating, Progress Energy and Technology
Solutions of America. Thanks also goes to our


sponsors Ace Hardware and DRB Benefits
Group and a thank-you goes to Central Flor-
ida Dance Center, for without them we would
not have had the dance off. Thanks, also, to our
dancers: Jacqueline Siegel, Tina Wong, Danny
Treanor, Bert Roper and Michael Waldrop (Mi-
chelle Damon had to bow out at the last minute).
You lit up the night with your style and grace,
and the crowd loved you all. Michael took home
the honor of the Best Dancer of West Orange
County, and everyone else was named as first
runners-up. Who knew that West Orange had
so many talented people in our midst?
If you have any interest in dancing in our
second annual BOBADO, or if you know some-
one who might want to step into the spotlight,
contact Lauren Wolf at 407-656-1304, Ext. 5,
or e-mail lwolf@wochaftber.com for more
information.

Donkeys wearing signs were led through the
streets of Winter Garden on a drive for new
membership of the Winter Garden Chamber

in letting the donkeys do as they pleased since
they had been trained for donkey basketball

was chairman of the drive, assisted by Mervin
Lee andLarry Grimes. Other "prospectors"
included Chamber President Bob McQuillen,
Ken Fritz, Bob Ellis, Leon Acton, Tom Cox

A group of parents gathered at the West

were weighed. The consensus was that any
new high school should be designed for no
more than 1,800-2,220 students.

SunBlox introduces sun


screens to Central Florida


By Michael Laval

Upon moving from
California to Winter Garden
11 years ago, SunBlox founder
Keith Freeman was amazed
to find that nobody had ever
heard of window sun screens
in the Sunshine State.
Solar screens, he said, have
been prevalent for years in
other sun-drenched states like
California, Arizona and Texas.
Freeman wanted to install the
sun-blocking screen at his
new Winter Garden home
but couldn't find anyone to
provide that service.
Four years ago, Freeman
decided the local market was
ripe for window sun screens
and he started SunBlox, which
he ran out of his garage for the
first year. A strong believer in
the product, Simon Fairbrother
joined Freeman as co-owner
of SunBlox last year, and the
pair now run the business out
of their Ocoee office.
SunBlox fabricates and sells
vinyl-coated screens that are
custom designed and fitted to
cover windows. The screens
block sunlight before it hits the
window and enters the home or
building. By blocking up to 90
percent of the sun's UV rays,
sun screens can reduce room
temperatures by as much as 20
degrees and provide savings of
up to 25-30 percent on summer
electric cooling bills.
The screens also provide
privacy by creating a tinted
appearance from outside,
while still allowing a clear
view from indoors.
"The key to our product is
that it blocks the sun before it
hits the glass," Freeman said.
"Once the sun hits the glass,
it's too late and you're going
to get solar heat gain."
Sun rays hitting glass will
produce about 230 BTUs per
square foot of glass, Freeman
added. SunBlox offers a
variety of screens that can
block out 70, 80 or 90 percent
of the sun's UV rays.
In addition to saving money
by reducing the strain on air-
conditioning systems, sun

local home.


screens result in another
financial bonus for home and
business owners Progress
Energy now offers rebates
for properties fitted with the
energy-saving screens.
Freeman and Fairbrother
agreed the biggest obstacle
SunBlox has to overcome is
educating the public about
their product. The two recently
promoted their company to
thousands who attended the
Home and Garden Show at the
Orange County Convention
Center.
Many people in Central
Florida, Freeman said, have
the perception that triple-
glazed window panes costing
thousands of dollars are the
best solution for keeping out
the sun's heat.
At $7.50 per square foot
or $150 for the average-size
window, SunBlox sun screens,
Freeman said, are a superior
product at a much lower


price.
SunBlox will tailor and install
its sun screens for residences
and multi-story office
and commercial buildings
throughout Central Florida.
Freeman and Fairbrother
met with officials from the
governor's office last month
about possibly providing their
sun screens for state buildings.
The company is also targeting
resorts, medical facilities
and municipal institutions
as potential customers for
SunBlox sun screens.
Freeman and Fairbrother are
members of the Florida Green
Building Coalition, the Global
Green Alliance, Energy Star
Partners and the West Orange
Chamber of Commerce.
SunBlox is located at 472
Palm Drive in Ocoee.

April is Water Conservation Month


The month of April has been
designated as Water Conservation
Month in the state of Florida.
Central Florida usually receives
between 50-53 inches of rain per
year, but in 2007, there was a
deficit of 10 inches. Since only
about seven inches actually seeps
back into the Floridian Aquifer as
the rest is lost by evaporation or
run-off into lakes, retention ponds
and other water bodies, conserv-
ing water has become more im-
portant than ever.
As a result, Orange County'
government is providing the fol-
lowing water-saving tips:
fix all leaks immediately. The
average leaky toilet can waste
about 200 gallons of water per
day.
use low-flow showerheads
that deliver no more than 2.5 gal-


Ions of water per minute.
turn off the water while brush-
ing teeth and shaving.
avoid flushing the toilet un-
necessarily by instead disposing
of tissues and other waste in a
trash can.
take short showers lasting five
minutes or less.
do not use running water to
thaw meat or other frozen foods.
Instead, defrost food overnight in
the refrigerator.
never put water down the
drain when there may be another
use for it, such as watering a plant
or cleaning.
store drinking water in the re-
frigerator instead of letting the tap
run while waiting for cool water
to flow.
water lawns up to two days a
week and turn off sprinklers when


it's rainy.
water lawns during the early
mornings or early evening hours
when temperature and wind speed
are lowest.
always use a nozzle on the
hose when watering or washing
vehicles.
use a broom instead of hosing
down sidewalks or driveways.
use Florida Friendly plants,
groundcovers and shrubs that,
once established, should thrive
on normal rainfall.
cut lawns to no more than
one-third of the grass length to
encourage grass roots to grow
deeper and grass blades to hold
moisture.

ida Friendly landscaping, contact

fice at 407-254-9200.


Global Green Alliance an-
nounced the launch of Green
Earth Expo 2008 at the Orange
* County Convention Center. The
Green Earth Expo will be the
largest show of its kind, drawing
hundreds of green and sustainable
corporations and non-profits to
showcase their green initiatives to
other businesses and consumers.
In all, Green Earth Expo 2008
is expected to draw more than 600
exhibitors and 50,000 attendees.
The event, set for May 14-18, is
booked for the next 10 years at
the Orange County Convention
Center.
The expo will feature major au-
tomakers, alternative energy pro-
viders, green construction fabrica-
tors and contractors, green service


providers, energy efficient appli-
ance manufacturers, as well as
health and wellness group and or-
ganic retailers. Confirmed speak'-
ers include top-level government
officials, green business' leaders
and environmental experts.
"We think it is important for
businesses and consumers alike
to know what green products and
services are available," said Jim
Griffin, founder and president of
Global Green Alliance. "We want
people to understand that 'going
green' does not mean sacrific-
ing your way of life or spending
more money. It means that you
care about your environment and
you are making efforts to preserve
it."
The convention's Green Busi-


ness Symposium will take place
Wednesday, May 14, followed by
a business-to-business network
day on May 15. The general pub-
lic will be welcomed for the last
three days of the expo, which will
also feature its Eco-Kid's Comer
with educational activities and
entertainment for children and
adults. Top designers will host an
eco-fashion show on Saturday,
May 17.
"Green should not be exclu-
sive," Griffin said. "Reducing
our carbon footprint, protecting
our resources and bettering our
individual health should be a
natural goal of any organization
or person."

SeaWorld is working with Ford
Motor Co., Chevron Technology
Ventures, Progress Energy and
the Department of Environmental
Protection's Florida Energy Office
as part of a pilot program work-
ing to determine the efficiency and
application of hydrogen-fueled
vehicles.
"We are honored to be part of
this innovative pilot program and


have a role in the effort to find al-
ternative fuel sources," said Dan
Brown, SeaWorld executive vice
president and general manager.
"Conservation has always been
part of SeaWorld's DNA and this
is one of the many initiatives we
are committed to as a company."
These Ford E-450 shuttles are
powered by internal combustion
V-10 engines that are modified
to run on hydrogen rather than
gasoline. Compared with today's
gasoline engines, these buses de-
liver up to 99.7 percent reduction
in carbon dioxide emissions and
include many of the benefits of a.


hydrogen fuel cell, but at a frac-
tion of the cost.
"These buses represent part of
Ford Motor Company's strategy
to deliver transportation solutions
that emit less carbon dioxide and
reduce our dependence on oil,"
said Sue Cischke, Ford senior
vide president.
SeaWorld will use the buses on
a daily basis for the next two years,
shuttling employees between
SeaWorld, Discovery Cove and
Aquatica. For more information

Lightning strikes home
of former ROTC teacher


Harvey and Millie Shelton
are finding out that retirement
doesn't always go as planned.
After serving 30 years in the
U.S. Air Force and 11 years as
the ROTC instructor at West
Orange High School, Harvey
Shelton was ready for a change.
Since he and his wife were both
from Arkansas, they wanted to
return home after they retired.
They built a two-story home
in 2006 and began enjoying
their free time, but a direct light-
ning strike changed all that in
February.


Though their home didn't
catch on fire, they did end up
with a basketball-sized hole in
their roof and they lost half of
the home's electrical system
plus their phone, three televi-
sions and a computer.
The Sheltons have spent the
last six weeks getting their home
back in order, and they're mak-
ing sure they have high-quality
surge protectors in place.
And, they maintain, the se-
vere weather in Arkansas is
much better than the hurricanes
they faced in Florida.

The Winter Garden Veterans
of Foreign Wars now have a
smooth ride, thanks to the city of
Ocoee. Ocoee recently donated
a Ford Taurus to the VFW Post
4305. The 9-year-old vehicle

block when city officials discov-
ered a better way to utilize the


car in the community. The ve-
hicle will be used to transport
veterans in need of transporta-
tion to the Veterans Administra-

"Ford Daley with the VFW
approached us with the idea,
and we thought what better
way to give back to the men


and women in our community
who have served our country,"
said Ocoee Mayor Scott Van-
dergrift.
The Ocoee Public Works
team breathed new life into the
car with a super tune-up, new
tires and a paint job with custom
lettering.

a missionary great. He worked
hard and has returned with
honor. He sets a good example
for other youth."
"I miss it very much," said
O'Connor about his time in
Idaho. "I wish I could go back,
but it is time to look forward to
other experiences."
He counseled the young men
and women of the congregation
to prepare to serve a mission,
calling it "the greatest thing you
will ever do."


During his mission he was a
leader of other missionaries in
his district and zone. Mission-
aries follow strict rule for dress
and conduct and pay their own
expenses.
Before being assigned to the
Boise mission, O'Connor had
never been to Idaho, "but it felt
-like the right place for me," he
said.
He will return to Idaho later

at Brigham Young University's

Island One
fund-raiser

focuses on
'Home at Last'

Island One Foundation's
first fund-raiser, "Cruisin' for
a Cause," took place recently
and was a big success. The
road rally was a fun-filled mo-
torcycle and car cruise from
Orlando to Daytona Beach.
The event was led by Robbie
Knievel, who has followed
in his father's (Evel Knivel)
footsteps, and Dan Haggerty,
well known for playing the
character of Grizzly Adams
on television.
The day began with a clas-
sic cycle and car show in
Orlando and ended with the
Black Vest Rendezvous Bash
in the evening in Daytona
Beach.
An estimated $355,000 in
cash, materials and services
were raised and will go toward
helping several organizations,
included Compassion Chil-
dren's Free Medical Clinic,
Coalition for the Homeless,
Sunshine Foundation, Cystic
Fibrosis and its centerpiece
project West Orange Habit
for Humanity "Home at Last"
project. This home is being
built to provide an adequate
residence for a recently dis-
abled 27-year-old American
soldier.
The "Home at Last" proj-
ect is for Sgt. Joshua Cope,
who recently returned form
his second tour of duty in
Iraq. He came back a hero,
saving several of his fellow
soldiers before losing both his
legs and severely injuring his
right arm when his Humvee
ran over an IED.
Once he has completed a
series of surgeries and has
re-learned to walk on his
prosthetic legs in California,
Cope and his wife and 2-year-
old daughter need a home in
Central Florida in order to be
close to a supportive family.

Liberty Tax Service
filing free returns for
some taxpayers
The federal tax stimulus pack-
age means rebates for most tax-
payers, including those who would

Anyone eligible for a payment
need only to file a 2007 tax return,
and Liberty Tax Service in Winter
Garden is offering to prepare tax
returns at no charge until March
31 for select taxpayers who have
no tax liability.
"Liberty Tax Service wants to
help people who do not normally
have to file a return get the rebate
they are entitled to receive," said
Bob McPherson, owner of Lib-
ert) Tax Service. "Most people
\' ho receive Social Security and
veteran's benefits are likely to
overlook this opportunity to get
the stimulus package.
"Last year, more than 30 mil-
lion taxpayers missed the tele-
phone excise-tax credit that was.
due to them," lMcPherson added.
"We don't want that to occL r "ith
the tax stimulus package."
Low-income workers or those
who receive Social Security ben-
efits or veteran's disability com-
pensation, pension or' survivor'
benefits received from the De-
partment of Veteran's Affairs in

Chef's Gala = Great food, great cause


By Mary Anne Swickerath

The statistic is interesting.
One in four Central Florid-
ians have in some way been
touched by Heart of Florida
United Way, our tri-county
health and human-services
charity. A total of 375,000
Central Florida residents will
be helped through United
Way-supported agencies in
2007-08, including the Boys
& Girls Clubs, the Salvation
Army, .the Center for Drug-
Free Living, the Coalition for
the Homeless and the Second
Harvest Food Bank.
And one of the charity's
biggest and most successful
fund-raisers each year is the
Annual Chef's Gala at Walt
Disney World Resort.
Well, the 16th gala is com-
ing April 5, and it will be held
at Epcot World Showplace
with 1,000 guests expected.
More than 20 of Orlando's
top chefs will be serving
gourmet treats (both savory
and sweet), all of which will
be paired with excellent
wines.
Establishments taking part
in Chef's Gala 2008 are the
American Brownie Co., Artist
Point at Disney's Wilderness
Lodge, Biergarten Restaurant
at Epcot, Boatwright's Din-
ing Hall a Disney's Port Or-
leans Resort, Citricos at Dis-
ney's Grand Floridian Resort,
Disney's Hollywood Studios
Bakery, Dux at the Peabody
Orlando, Epcot Bakery,
Greenside's Restaurant at
Harmony Golf Preserve, La
Coquina Chef's Table and
Hemingway's at Hyatt Re-
gency Grand Cypress, The
Hollywood Brown Derby at
Disney's Hollywood Studios,
Jiko-The Cooking Place.
and Tusker, House Restaurant
at Disney's Animal Kingdom
Lodge, Primo and JW Mar-
riott Culinary Team at Grande
Lakes Orlando, Kona Caf6 at
Disney's Polynesian Resort,
Nine 18 at the Villas at Grand
Cypress, Raglan Road Irish
Pub, The Ravenous Pig, the
Royal Plaza Hotel, Spoodles
at Disney's BoardWalk Re-
sort, Todd English's bluezoo,
Tony's Town Square Restau-
rant at the Magic Kingdom',
Joffrey's Coffee & Tea Co.
and Volcano's Coffee Bar &
Roastery.
That's quite a list and
theie will be live jazz and a
great, silent auction.
Tickets are $175 a person
or $1,750 for a corporate
package of 12 tickets, and
they are available by calling
407-835-0900, Ext. 377 or e-
mail chefsgala@hfuw.org.
Last week, Primo (one of
Orlando's best restaurants)
hosted a media luncheon to
spotlight the gala. Chef de
Cuisine Kathleen Blake and
her staff served delicious
Lobster Rolls with Veggie
Chips, and Dux Chef Julio
Delgado presented Braised
Veal Cheeks with Celeriac
Mousse and Orange Persil-
lade (a media favorite).
Chef Jim Goodman of the
JW Marriot Culinary Team
served an impressive array:
House-Cured Pancetta and
Bacon, Fresh-Cured Ham
and Citrus-brined Whole
Pork Loin.
To top off the luncheon,
Epcot Baker Chef Lothar
Neumaier slayed everyone
with Chocolate Grand Marni-
er parfait and Mango Strudel
with Pomegranate Foam.
My advice to food and
wine lovers is to get your
tickets right away to this
wonderful event. It will be
an abundance of riches and
for the worthiest of causes.


Chef de Cuisine Kathleen Blake of Primo at the JW Mar-
riot Orlando Grande Lakes hosted a preview of the 2008
Chef's Gala for the media last week.

Annexation
Osborne reviewed Wind-
ermere's annexation process
and said he and the town
staff agreed with the county's
opinion that there had been
some technical issues in the
Isleworth annexation report
relating to a surveyor's de-
scription of the boundaries
for the platted area.
In addition to extending
the conflict resolution and,
as a first step to resolving
the dispute, Osborne said,
the county staff also asked
Windermere to repeal its an-
nexation ordinance and start
over.
"That's what we're going
to propose tonight," the attor-
ney told the Town Council.
In restarting the annexa-
tion, the town would rewrite
the annexation report and, in
the process, Osborne said,
Windermere could do a lot
to address the county's con-
cerns.
At this time, the town does
not have a commitment from
the principals in Isleworth on
whether they are willing to
consent to the annexation.
Because of special circum-
stances, the town must obtain
consent from more than 50
percent of the major prop-
erty owners, which include
Isleworth Country Club, the
board of the Isleworth Hom-
eowners Association, Tav-
istock and other developers
of vacant land, before the
annexation goes to a vote of
the registered voters.
Osborne said the town
could proceed in three ways
once the original annexation
ordinance is repealed..
Windermere could restart
the annexation process imme-
diately and move forward as
it did before. Or, the Town
Council could introduce a
new annexation ordinance
and postpone its final ap-
proval until it had Isleworth's
initial consent. Or, it could
wait until it has preliminary
approval by Isleworth's major
stakeholders and then initiate
the process.
Council Member Bob
Sprick, who is also an at-
torney, told Osborne he dis-
agreed with his reasoning.
Sprick opposed the Isle-
worth annexation last fall
and said the town has wasted
time and money on the pro-
cess without knowing if Isle-
worth is really interested in
annexation.,
"The town has failed to
do its homework in courting
Isleworth," said Sprick. "We
need feedback that they're
interested before we pursue
this ordinance."
David Kemp, a member
of the Isleworth Homeown-


"We owe it to the residents of
Butler Bay, who are, in 10 days,
going to be residents of Wind-
ermere. Deferring this isn't in
their best interest."

John Briggs
Council member


ers Association board, at-
tended the meeting and told
the council the HOA would
meet in April to address the
annexation proposal.
Council Member John
Briggs, a mediation attorney
and one of the town's rep-
resentatives at the meeting
with the county, told fellow
council members he opposed
Osborne's recommendation
to extend the conflict reso-
lution.
"There is no reason to
postpone this meeting," said
Briggs.
"We owe it to the residents
of Butler Bay, who are, in 10
days, going to be residents of
Windermere.. Deferring this
isn't in their best interest."
Residents of Butler Bay,
Unit 1 voted in a mail-ballot
referendum on March 11
approving the annexation,
which becomes effective this
Friday, March 21.
Briggs urged continuing
the process with a meeting
of the two boards by March
18 to see how the, county
would respond to the Butler
Bay annexation once Wind-
ermere had agreed to repeal
the ordinance annexing Isle-
worth. The county stands
to lose $3.2 million in tax
revenue if Isleworth is an-
nexed into Windermere. In
the case of Butler Bay, Unit
1 the tax differential is less
than $60,000.
At this point in the meet-
ing, Town Attorney Tom Wil-
kes told the Town Council it
would be prudent to back up
and start over again on Isle-
worth. He said this would
cut the town's potential legal
costs, noting legal expenses
are of little consequence to
the county due to the size of
its legal staff.
Briggs pointed out that the
county was also objecting to
the town's current fire protec-
tion agreement with Ocoee,
saying it requires approval by
a dual referendum.
"Repealing this ordinance
is not going to solve that,"
said Briggs.
"I think we need Orange
County to make a decision
on Butler Bay sooner rather
than later."


Wilkes said he is optimistic
the county would drop its ob-
jection to the Butler Bay an-
nexation once the Isleworth
portion is repealed.
However, Wilkes said if the
county pursues its challenge
of Butler Bay, the resolution
being considered might not
matter and the "people in But-
ler Bay would be in jeopardy
of not getting annexed before
the July 1 closing deadline"
for property assessments."
If annexed, property owners
in Butler Bay, Unit 1 would
see a reduction in property
taxes because Windermere
has one of the lowest millage
rates in Orange County.
The council voted 4-1 ap-
proving the resolution to ex-
tend the mediation deadline
until May 1, with Briggs vot-
ing "no."
Then, there was unanimous
consent by the council ap-
proving the first reading of
an ordinance to repeal the or-.
dinance annexing Isleworth.
A second reading and final
vote will be scheduled for
the Town Council meeting
April 8 to complete the re-
peal process.
Briggs said the repeal of
the Isleworth annexation or-
dinance should end another
lawsuit brought by Joseph
and Bettye Whitaker. The
Whitakers live on Chase
Road, just outside of-Win-
dermere, and their property
was included in the Isleworth
annexation, although they are
not within the Isleworth com-
munity walls.
On another matter, the
Town Council turned down
all bids submitted to com-
plete a grant that expires
March 31. The grant would
have provided $90,549 in
funding to prune more than
400 trees and shrubs along
two streets, Main Street
and Sixth Avenue. The bid
deadline was March 7, and
Tree Board Chairman Janet
Maland had representatives
of the selected bidders avail-
able to answer questions from
council members.
Sprick recommended deny-
ing the bid proposals because
there was too little time to
complete the work and the


(Continued from lA)

tree crews would impede
traffic flow on the town's
two major arteries, creating
congestion.
In fact, $12,650 was in-
cluded in the pruning budget
for additional traffic control
by the police department.
Referring to potential traf-
fic congestion, Police Chief
Dan Saylor said his depart-
ment would handle it, add-
ing, "It's going to be a chal-
lenge."
In discussion, the Town
Manager Cecilia Bernier
agreed with Sprick's analysis
and recommended rejecting
the bids.
Maland argued,the work-
should be done because of
the hazardous condition of
the trees.
"No one is doubting the
need to do this project," said
Sprick, clarifying that the
limited timeframe was the
issue.
The council voted unani-
mously to reject the bids.
Sprick suggested that in the
future grants should be writ-
ten and supervised by town
administration rather than by
committees.
In other business, the Town
Council approved five re-
quests submitted by the Parks
and Recreation Committee.
The council voted unani-
mously for improvements in
Fernwood Park. The work in-
cludes reestablishing swales
and improving drainage and
installing native plants and
trees, along with signage to
designate parking areas.
By a vote of 4-1, with
Council Member Burns
Hovey dissenting, the coun-
cil authorized $1,305 for the
purchase and installation of
12 car stops and a trash re-
ceptacle for the town tennis
courts.
The council unanimously
approved the committee's
request to go forward with a
Request For Proposal to so-
licit bids for children's play
equipment in Central Park.
This expenditure is- part of
a Florida Recreation Devel-
opment Assistance Program
grant.
The council members also
authorized Stephens Install-
ers to apply acrylic coating to
the concrete slab in Central
Park at a cost of $1,728.
The council unanimous-
ly approved a resolution,
which states that withdraw-
als of funds from the Parks
and Recreation Commit-
tee's annual 5K Run account
must be recommended by
the committee and approved
by the council. There is ap-
proximately $50,000 in this
account currently.

The West Orange High var-
sity baseball team traveled to

Top readers
Six Windermere Prep fourth-
graders were recently recog-
nized for having read all 15
books in this year's Sunshine
State Young Reader's Award
Program. This is a program
which nurtures lifelong readers,
according to Jean Guernsey,
the WPS media specialist.
The program is open to all
Florida third- through eighth-
grade students. There are 15


books to read for third-, fourth-
and fifth-graders, as well as 15
for sixth through eighth grade.
The students have from Octo-
ber through April to read any or
all of the books.
All WPS students who read
three or more were invited to an
ice cream sundae party, where
how much ice cream and how
many toppings they received
reflected the number they read.
The top readers amassed four


scoops of ice cream, six top-
pings, whipped cream and a
cherry.
The names of all the students
who read three or more of the
books are recorded on the Ice
Cream Wall. Students who at-

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


"But I want you to know, brethren, that the
things which happened to me have actually
turned outfor the furtherance of the gospel, so
that it has become evident to the whole palace
guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in
Christ."
Philippians 1:12,13

First of all, God wants us to know that all
things work together for His good. God is able
to take our present situation and mold it toward
the furtherance of the Gospel. Even what may
look like a bad situation can become an oppor-
tunity to be a witness of Jesus Christ.
Who knows what God will do? If we will
remain true to the faith, and refuse to compromise
our belief, God will use us in a mighty way. If
we, on a daily basis, continue to walk the talk of
our faith in Christ, others will begin to believe
the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our faith in Jesus Christ should be evident to
everyone around us. People should see, hear, and
experience a difference when they are near us.
We should be living examples of God's righ-
teousness. People should know that we are
Christians and we shouldn't hide the truth of our
faith in Christ.
It's time for us to stand up and be bold in our
faith, regardless of situations or people. It was
evident to the prison guards that Apostle Paul
was a Christian. He spoke with boldness of his
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
We're not chained to the world anymore, we
are chained to Christ, a new creation in Him, old
things have passed away. We have a new walk,
a new talk, a new mind and a new spirit. We
shouldn't act like we used to; we are not chained
to our old lifestyle anymore!

Winter Garden Mayor John Rees visits Dillard Street Elementary School and shares a
math lesson.


Visit from the mayor
Dillard Street Elementary
students were thrilled to have
the newly elected mayor of
Winter Garden, John Rees,
teach a math lesson.
During his mayoral cam-
paign, Rees visited the school
many times to teach Superstar
Math lessons. The students
are very happy that even with
his busy schedule, he is still
able to come to the school to


work with them.
A big thank-you goes to
Mayor Rees for his visits and
support.
Mark the calendar
Students in third, fourth and
fifth grades will continue to
take the FCAT until March 24.
Field Day will be held on
Wednesday, March 26.
There is no school for stu-
dents on Friday, March 28.


Spring Break will be Mon-
day, March 31, through Friday,
April 4. Classes will resume on
Monday, April 7.
Student safety
Students who ride bikes to
school must properly wear a
bicycle helmet. Students who
walk to school must use the
crosswalks at the crossing
guard when coming to and
leaving from school.


Three Chain of Lakes Middle School students, Thanawat Taechapisuttikul, Michelle Pinto
Martinex and Jeremy Bodiford, have art on display at the Orlando Museum of Art through
April 14. The display is in the Peggy Crosby Gallery, which is open to the public with no
admission charge. Congratulatory letters, certificates and family passes to the museum
were given to these students. They are 3 of only 40 entries accepted from all levels of
OCPS. A letter was also sent to Dr. Kindt, congratulating them on entry into this juried
show. Their art instructor is Sandra Zaccagnini.


Maxine Lee (left) and Freida Burris are working together to build a strong Early Childhood
Education Program with the support of WOHS and Westside Tech.

WOHS, Westside Tech join forces

in Early Childhood Education Program


With more than 60 years of
combined experience, Maxine
Lee and FreidaBurris with the
support of West Orange High and
Westside Tech are building a
high school/preschool program
together.
With language, science, out-
door play, story time, art, math
and other group activities, the
Early Childhood Education Pro-
gram on the campus of WOHS
offers all that and much more to
preschoolers who are enrolled
there.
Children age 3-5 are given a
chance to explore, create and
acquire social skills. They share,
learn and get to know what
school is all about before they
enter kindergarten.
Students in grades nine to 12
can earn up to four credits (720
hours of experience) while in
high school and earn up to six
college credits and 55 hours of
DCF certification.
The two schools' separate
programs have been in exis-
tence for many years. Some of


the preschool parents are their
past high schools students, and
some of their preschoolers have
come back to be their high school
students.
Many former ECE students
are teachers and aides through-
out the county and state. During
the years, the ECE program has
grown and changed with the cur-
rent needs and now uses the Sun-
shine State Standards and certi-
fies students in DCF training.
This summer the ECE will
be moving into the beautiful fa-
cilities in the new West Orange
High. The program will have a
separate preschool classroom,
up-to-date kitchen, outdoor stor-
age and playground, due to the
combined efforts of WOHS and
its new administration West-
side Tech. -
Here are comments from
four high school students who
have been in the program two
to four years: "ECE will teach
you responsibility, patience and
confidence. Also, you get a lot
of hands-on learning and DCF


training."
"This class allows me to ex-
plore many career opportuni-
ties and a chance to be a part of
and touch the lives of children.
Having knowledge about and
experience with children will
open .plenty of doors for me --
whether it's having my own chil-
dren or choosing a career in day
care...."
"I like that I have the oppor-
tunity to learn more about the
world of little minds. And there's
so much you can learn from chil-
dren."
'This class has helped me write
with details and with steps that
will help children understand. If
you love kids and working with
other people, ECE is for you."
Any student interested in
working with children in any
career or vocation is invited to
go by Room 603 at WOHS to
observe and ask questions. Also,
any parent needing a good school
start for a preschooler is welcome
to call 407-905-2441 for more in-
formation.

The Island One Foundation would like to thank the community in making our first event, Cruisin' For A Cause, a resounding success. The
event helped to support our mission to benefit children's charities, disaster relief and families in crisis. While Island One Foundation
is working with the Children's Free Medical Clinic, the Coalition for the Homeless, the Sunshine Foundation and others, the Cruise
raised over $350,000 in support of the 2008 center piece initiative: The West Orange Habitat for Humanity's "Home at Last" project.
Thanks to our donors, supporters, and construction contractors, we will be able to provide significant assistance to Habitat in creation
of a wonderful home for Sergeant Joshua Cope, a two-time wounded war hero who lost his legs in service to our country. Because of
tremendous community support, he and his young family will be properly welcomed home.
With deepest gratitude we wish to say Thank You to all who helped us make a difference in the community and we especially wish to
recognize the following sponsors that provided significant leadership gifts:
