West Orange facing water supply crisis
By Michael Laval


What will West Orange County do if and when it
runs out of water?
Florida is facing a water supply crisis with esti-
mates predicting a severe shortage by 2013, accord-
ing to biologist and environmentalist Jim Thomas,
vice president of Friends of Lake Apopka (FOLA)
and founder of Biosphere Consulting Inc. in Winter
Garden.
The Florida aquifer, which supplies more than 95
percent of the region's water supply, has been de-
termined by experts to be at an alarmingly low ca-
pacity that continues to shrink while our growing
population's demand for water rises. With more than
50 percent of Florida's water use dedicated to land-
scape irrigation, Thomas and FOLA President Mona
Phipps are urging'cities and residents to step up wa-
ter conservation efforts.
"Can we justify using 50 percent of our water sup-
ply to water lawns?" Thomas asked. "If you're look-
ing at water conservation, that's the place to start."
County and municipal officials will wrestle with
water conservation issues at FOLA's annual meet-
ing, set for April 3 at 7 p.m. at Tanner Hall in Winter
Garden. The public is encouraged to attend the West
Orange Water summit, which will focus on three
questions: Where do current water supplies come
from? What are the alternatives if we run out of wa-
ter? What current steps are being taken to conserve
water?
Speaking at the meeting will be Teresa Remund-
Fries, deputy director of Orange County Utilities,
who will also ,be representing Conserve II; James
Hollingshead, supervising hydrologist, St. Johns
River Water Management District; Mike Bollhoefer,
city manager, Winter Garden; Ocoee Mayor Scott
Vandergrift; and Oakland Mayor Kathy Stark.
Local governments have been given a mandate by
SJRWMD to identify alternative sources of water by

2013. Thomas is critical of this ruling, calling it
"outrageous" because it has led to several proposals
to withdraw millions of gallons per day from Central
Florida lakes and rivers, including Lake Apopka.


Windermere council vote may

leave grant funding unused


Impending grant
deadline leaves
Tree Board looking
at alternate ways
to use grant funds.

By Kathy Aber

Trees are important to Win-
dermere and its residents. The
town has been recognized as
a Tree City USA for the past
14 years. Besides holding an
annual Arbor Day celebra-
tion, the town adopted an
ordinance in 1992 to protect
its tree canopy and regulate
removal of trees and in 1994
started a Tree Board.
In fact, a recent comprehen-
sive inventory of the town's
trees values them at more than
$33 million.
Windermere has had a suc-
cessful track record of obtain-


ing and completing grants
for stormwater /remediation,
installation of sidewalks and
bike paths, park and roadway
improvements and tree give-
aways and educational semi-
nars.
But this cost-sharing strat-
egy hit a snag March 11 when
the Town Council rejected
bids to complete a $90,000
project to close out a Hur-
ricane Grant focused on an
extensive tree-pruning effort
along the town's main roads.
Tree Board Chairman Janet
Maland presented the bids to
the council and had represen-
tatives of the selected con-
tractors available to answer
questions. The plan called for
pruning 400 trees along Main
Street and Sixth Avenue -
work that required completion
by the grant deadline March
31.
The council unanimously


rejected the tree-trimming
work because the members
did not believe it could be
completed within the 20-day
timeframe without consider-
able disruption to traffic flow
and inconvenience to resi-
dents.
Maland told The West Or-
ange Times last week she felt
"cut off at the knees" by the
Town Council vote.
If rejection of the grant im-
plementation wasn't enough,
just minutes later, the mem-
bers asked Maland to prepare
a new grant application for
$25,000.
She pointed out that Win-
dermere would be knocked
down to the bottom of the list
when it submits future grant
requests because the town
would have failed to spend
its current grant allotments.

Movies of all eras coming to

Winter Garden's silver screen


By Amy Quesinberry

Families in West Orange
County can experience a
downtown movie theater like
their parents and grandparents
once did now that the Garden
Theatre is up and running after
a 45-year absence.
While the theater is promot-
ing its first season of stage
shows and performances, it
also has a movie screen that has
been getting its share of atten-
tion with Milk Money Movies
and Garden Vintage Movies.
The tickets might cost much
more than a carton of milk
(even more than a gallon of
milk), but the fun concept is
there. Sponsored by Progress
Energy, Milk Money Movies
are $5 and run Tuesdays at 7
p.m. The remaining films are
April 8, Field of Dreams,
rated PG, 1989;
April 15, The Incredibles,
PG, 2004;
April 29, Who Framed
RogeARabbit?, PG, 1988;


May 13, An American Tail,
G, 1986;
May 20, Toy Story, G,
1995.
Garden Theatre officials
want parents to be aware that
the rating system prior to 1985
was valued differently than by
today's standards.
Garden Vintage Movies are
$7 on select Thursdays at 7
p.m. and are sponsored by the
Attic Door:
April 10, Casablanca, Not
Rated, 1942;
May 1, A Streetcar Named
Desire, PG, 1951;
May 15, Citizen Kane, NR,
1941;
May 22, West Side Story,
NR, 1961.
This weekend features
Broadway on the Big Screen
with A Funny Thing Happened
on the Way to the Forum (NR,
1966) on March 27, My Fair
Lady (G, 1964) on March 28
and Singin' In the Rain (NR,
1952) on March 29.
Admiss inh is $7, and movies


begin at 7 p.m.
A Back to the Future Fest
is scheduled for April 17-19,
nightly at 7. The trio of Mi-
chael J. Fox films debuted in
1985, 1989 and 1990. All are
rated PG.
A special showing of Gone
With the Wind (G, 1939) takes
place May 10 at 1 p.m.
For ticket information, go
to www.wgtheatre.org or call
the box office weekdays at
407-877-4736.
Alauna McMillen, the gen-
eral manager of the Garden
Theatre, said she grew up in a
small Missouri town much like
Winter Garden. She always
dreamed of running a theater
one day, and now that day is
here.
"As big as my imagina-
tion is," she wrote in the latest
edition of the Winter Garden
Heritage Foundation's Heri-
tage Windows newsletter, "I
never dreamed of something as
rewarding and beautiful as the
Garden Theatre." t


"This has the potential for massive damage toj
aquatic ecosystems throughout the state," Thomas

City considers fire fee,

approves pensions

for elected officials


The proposed
fire fee will be
added to property-
tax notices in
November if
passed.

By Mary Anne Swickerath

The city of Ocoee hopes to
raise approximately $1.8 mil-
lion next year through a pro-
posed fire-service fee. This
fee will cover 60 percent of
the Fire Department's bud-
get, since the fee cannot be
used for emergency medical
costs. These costs, including
the new Advanced Life Sav-
ing services now offered by
the Fire Department, will con-
tinue to come out of the city's
General Fund.
Last week, the City Com-
mission set the amounts of the
proposed fee, approved lioti-
fying all property owners this
week and set a public hearing
on the matter April 15.
If passed, each household
will be charged $88 annu-
ally. Commercial buildings
will be assessed 22 cents per
square foot, with industries


and warehouses, paying 5
cents, per square foot and in-
stitutions paying 31 cents per
square foot.
An exception under institu-
tions will be facilities located
on tax-exempt public prop-
erties, such as churches and
public schools, that will pay
no fee.
"This fire fee is another way
to fund the fire portion of [the
city's] budget," City'Manager
Rob Frank told The West Or-
ange Times.
He added that this new fee
would put the cost of fire ser-
vice on a more equitable basis
for everyone in the city and
would give the city more bud-
geting flexibility.
If revenue from property
taxes doesn't fall during the
current economic downturn
statewide, Ocoee would have
* the option of lowering taxes
because of the funds gener-
ated by the fire fee.
Many municipalities are as-
sessing a fire fee or preparing
to assess one, and Winter Gar-
den is in the process of propos-
ing its own fire-fee ordinance.

Ocoee Fire Department

awarded ALS License


The Ocoee Fire Department
has received an operational
inspection from the State of
Florida Department of Health/
Emergency Medical Services
for its Advanced Life Support
Program.
"This was the last step in the
process of achieving the Ad-
vanced Life Support License,"
said Fire Chief Richard First-
ner. "The Ocoee Fire Depart-
ment's members are proud to
achieve this operational status
that has taken over two years
to achieve."
The inspection covered
personnel records, service re-
cords, facilities, vehicles and
equipment. According to "le


Department of Health, the
Ocoee Fire Department's pol-
icy and procedures for han-
dling narcotics and drugs, as
well as its automated dispens-
ing system, were impressive.
There were no deficiencies
noted in the inspection, and an
overall exceptional rating was
awarded.
The Advanced Life Sup-
port Program allows for criti-
cal life-saving interventions
through the use of advanced
techniques, diagnostics and
medications in the field in or-
der to give citizens who are in
need of emergency care a dra-
matically improved level of
service available to them. \

deputies were dispatched to
9669 Westover Club Circle
in Gotha in reference to an
armed home invasion/armed
robbery. The victim, Elliot
White, 35, was in the home
caring for his uncle when he
responded to a knock on the
front door.
He opened the door and
was met by a black male, who
asked for woman by name.
The victim advised him that
no one by that name lived in
the residence than apparently
stepped outside to provide
directions to a possible loca-
tion in the subdivision for the
woman.
He was immediately con-
fronted by two other black
males, one armed with a
handgun, who forced him
back into the home and tied
him up. The suspects repeat-
edly demanded money and
threatened the victim. The
suspects robbed him of his
wallet, cash and jewelry and
fled in what was described as
a fire-engine red sedan.
The only suspect descrip-
tions provided is that one of
the suspects was well-dressed
and polite and one was armed
with a handgun.

Orange County braces for state funding cuts


In anticipation of lower
revenue funding from the
state for K12 education in
fiscal year 2008-09, Orange
County Public Schools Su-
perintendent Ronald Blocker
has directed schools and de-
partments to prepare for cuts
totaling $70 million. The cur-
rent 2007-08 year operating
budget had planned revenues
of $1.3 billion.
Blocker informed his ad-
ministrators recently, "We


must be proactive in our
decision-making in order to
prepare for what seems to be
inevitable."
All schools were directed
to reduce their 2008-09 bud-
gets by six percent to accom-
modate projected shortfalls.
All district departments will
cut seven percent from their
budgets.
Recognizing that each
school and department must
meet and serve its own needs,


Board


With some hesitation,
Maland agreed to write the
next grant proposal, which is
due prior to the next coun-
cil meeting. Assistant to the
Town Manager Amy Wal-
lenhurst has agreed to help
Maland prepare the grant.
Since the Town Council
meeting two weeks ago,
Maland has been working to
close out three tree grants,
which all have March 31
deadlines. With the town's
Community Room as her
base of operations, Maland
has been sorting through 14
boxes and many stacks of
documents to prepare and
submit the grant closing pa-
perwork to demonstrate the.
grant funds were properly
administered.
In addition, she is strug-
gling to find alternate ways
to spend the remaining grant
funds by March 31.
As of Monday, she had
documented $14,800 in tree-
removal expense that could
be submitted, along with
pruning work in Johnson
Park and the cost of mulch-
ing over areas where inva-
sive plants were removed in
the park ($12,000). Maland
is also investigating using
$20,000 to purchase trees
that could be given away
during the annual Rotary
Festival Among the Lakes
in April.
This expenditure is still un-
der review in Tallahassee.
Town Manager Cecilia
Bernier told the Times Tues-
day she would not consider
the tree giveaway plan be-
cause it was not part of the
grant and would require
Town Council approval.
In addition, Bernier said
the town has 40 trees left
from a January giveaway and
is not set up to handle 1,000
more trees.
To date, Windermere has
been awarded more than
$339,000 in grant funding
for forestry and tree-related
expenses and projects.
Maland said she is ex-
tremely grateful to the U.S.
Department of Agriculture
and the Florida Division
of Forestry's Urban and
Community Forestry Grant
Program for allowing Win-
dermere to create an urban
forestry program.
She said the grants made it


possible for town volunteers
to be trained in proper arbo-
riculture practices and learn
the latest tree-preservation
methods from industry and
government leaders.
As a reaction to the recent
hurricanes, Maland said,
Florida, like many other
Southern states, is realiz-
ing the importance of prop-
erly pruned and maintained
trees.
"The more responsibility
we can take in our own back-
yard, the better our world
will be," said Maland.
The town has successfully
completed two tree grants.
Grant No. 1 for $36,200 paid
for a tree inventory. The town
was reimbursed for half of
its cost. As part of this grant,
the town received an Urban
Forest Management Plan
prepared by Earth Advisors
Inc. in June 2006.
The report includes an in-
ventory of trees on public
property in town with an
estimated value of just un-
der $10 million. In addition,
the report concludes that 89
percent of the town's trees
are in fair to poor health and
379 trees are recommended
for removal. Pruning was
suggested for another 407
trees.
In Grant No. 2, the town
requested approximately
$42,000 to establish and
execute a long-term urban
forest management plan. It
included hiring a GIS techni-
cian and consulting arborist,
implementing a tree-planting
effort, revising the town's
tree ordinance and initiat-
ing a community education
plan, including training for
Tree Board members. The.
town match was 50 percent
of the grant.
Grants No. 3 and 4, which
are being closed this month,
are special supplemental Ur-
ban and Community Forestry
Grants, offered through the
U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services.
This grant offering, total-
ing $13.5 million in federal
funds, was made available
to communities that suf-
fered damage to their urban
tree canopies as a result of
the 2004 hurricanes with a
75-25-match basis.
Grant No. 3 was used pri-
marily for removal of exotic


principals and department
chiefs have the flexibility and
authority to identify their own
cutbacks so to reach their tar-
get reductions. Consequently,
there is no definite way to
characterize where budget cuts
will be made at this time.
The 2008-09 student enroll-
ment projections for Orange
County are expected to remain
the same as the current year
at 171,000 students (FTE, full
time equivalent students).

and arboriculture remedia-
tion throughout town, in-
cluding the recently rejected
pruning work along Sixth
Avenue and Main Street.
The town's match for this
$150,000 grant is $37,000.
Grant No. 4 for $80,893
paid for educational semi-
nars, tree conferences, tree
giveaways and a special Ar-
bor Day event. The town's
portion was $20,043.
Grant No. 5 for $30,000,
which also closes this month,
enabled Windermere to hire
a person to execute urban
forestry initiatives with a 50
percent match.

Commissioner Brummer asks questions about DOH rule


Editor:


I don't get it. Do you?
What's that? What is my question, you ask?
Sorry, I was a little ahead of myself.
The question is "What motivates elected officials
to go against the best interests of their constitu-
ents?" This particular matter is about protecting
the Wekiva River and its contributing springs and
\ the almost 60,000 homeowners that have onsite
wastewater treatment systems (septic systems).
Officials elected to represent Orange County
residents are lobbying the bureaucrats at the De-
partment of Healt h (DOH) to impose a rule that
will add a huge amount of dollars to the cost of a
new septic system.
Are they motivated by concern for the environ-
ment? No! No evidence has been presented that
aerobic and anaerobic septic systems, also referred
to as performance-based wastewater treatment sys-
tems, have been effective in Florida at substantially
reducing the amount of nitrogen contributed to
groundwater by septic systems.
Are they motivated by political populism? No!
The hue and cry against the proposed DOH rule
that has risen from their constituents is virtually
unanimous. The residents are willing to sacrifice to
protect the environment. Constituents recognize a
limit to valuable resources. Expensive regulations
that are ineffective must not be implemented.
Do they pander after approval by arrogant bu-


reaucrats? Do they position themselves to gain ap-
pointment to some non-elected position? Whatever
the reason', their efforts are in opposition to the
well-being of the Wekiva River and the residents
of the Wekiva StudyArea.
Elected officials are encouraging the DOH to'
unwisely move forward with its ineffective and
expensive rule requiring performance-based septic
systems in the Wekiva Study Area. Elected officials
have had bureaucrats from the Florida Association
of Counties encourage the DOH to unwisely move
forward with its hugely expensive and ineffective
rule.
The DOH rule is pervasive. If you need a new
septic system, you must have one of the super-
expensive systems installed rather than a standard
system.
You will pay. Efforts by Rep. Bryan Nelson and
me to create a grant fund for the required replace-
ments have been stymied by a local Florida state
senator.
Resources are limited. Residents of the Wekiva
Study Area have a very limited number of dollars
available to spend on the protection of the Wekiva
River and its contributing springs. Spending those
limited dollars on an ineffective alternative will hurt
the effort necessary to protect the Wekiva River.
I still don't get it. Do you?
Frederick C. Brummer
Orange County Commissioner

Old Times


75 years ago
Record-breaking deposits poured into the First
National Bank of Winter Garden as local business-
men rejoiced when word was received from Wash-
ington that the bank may open on a 100 percent
basis. The soundness of the institution has been
attested by federal inspection.
Attorney General Gary Landis has ruled that,
regardless of congressional action taken in Wash-
ington, Florida will have no legal beer until an
amendment is made to the state constitution.
40 years ago,
The Winter Garden Improvement Committee
has been working on the idea of obtaining some
sort of a lease through the city for the old railroad
depot. This would be used as a Chamber of Com-
merce office and be altered somewhat.
Ellis Inc. on Plant Street has a new look. In
cooperation with the Winter Garden Improvement
Committee's idea to improve the downtown area,
Bob Ellis has remodeled his storefront into an
attractive Southern Colonial design.
Let's not discourage cigarette smoking., With
the new tax levied, Winter Garden will get an
estimated $34, 893 in added revenue from such
sales in the city.
35 years ago
Signs of the gasoline shortage, which is forcing
somp pumps in Florida to ration, is already being
felt in Winter Garden. A recent one-cent price hike
by area stations sent regular as high as 38 9/10.
Otis Melton, manager of the Imperial station next
to the Winter Garden Post Office, upped his regu-
lar to 34 9/10. Asked if prices might reach the

50-cent range, Melton, who has been in the busi-
ness for 29 years, said "I wouldn't doubt it."

30 years ago
The entire student body of Ocoee Elementary
School turned out for the groundbreaking of its
new school. Representatives from each class as-
sisted Dr. Linton Deck, superintendent of Orange
County Schools, and Maxine Cinnamon, OES
principal, in the ceremony. The new site is located
behind the present school.
A beginning art student less that seven short
years ago, Ernest Hawk of Winter Garden is ven-
turing into his very first art show. He will be ex-
hibiting both his graphics charcoalss and pastels)
and realistic paintings (water colors and oils) at
the Pine Hills Art Festival.

25 years ago
In a never-say-die struggle against the Stone-
wall Jackson Raiders, the Ocoee Cardinals came
from behind twice to win the Orange County Ju-
nior High baseball championship in overtime at
Tinker Field. As principal of Jackson, the home-
team school, Lester Dabbs (also a longtime resi-
dent of Ocoee), presented the first place trophy
to Cardinal pitcher Wesley Lindsey.

20 years ago
Quoting Robert Frost, Oliver Wendell Holmes
and others to reinforce their message, southwest
Orange residents said "We don't want it" to the
county's plan to six-lane Conroy-Windermere
Road. After listening to dozens of homeowners
who described the plan as "overkill," the commis-
sioners OK'd the improvement plan anyway.

PRIVATE MORTGAGE
INSURANCE
On a down payment of less than
20 percent of a home's cost, the
lender will probably require the
buyer to purchase private mortgage
insurance (PMI). The insurance will
cost about 1 percent of the loan
amount if your down payment is
less than 10 percent, and 1/2 per-
cent of the loan if the down payment
is between 10 and 20 percent. This
coverage can be paid for in one pay-
ment at the settlement, or through
an additional charge on each mort-
gage payment until the loan balance
is less than 80 percent of the value
of your home.
Both the lender and the PMI
Company must approve your mort-
gage application. If you are only
marginally qualified, the approval of
your loan could be delayed or even
denied. Discuss PMI costs with
each lender you contact.
C-iml.. .,m inh:,|lh-.ii for mortgage
insurance may save you money!
If you purchase PMI coverage, be
sure to ask your lender to cancel it
when your mortgage balance lowers
to 80 percent of the property's mar-
ket value. Some lenders notify their
borrowers when this point is
reached, but some do not.
If you would like to talk further
about buying or selling real estate,
please contact Libby Tomyn CRS at
Century 21 Professional Group. Call
me on my personal message line,

A golf tournament and dinner will help the Rayburn
family. Tish Rayburn, a former teacher at Oakland
Avenue Charter School, is undergoing treatment for
ovarian cancer.

Benefit proceeds to help

former Oakland teacher

in battle with cancer


By Amy Quesinberry

As a teacher in Oakland,
Tish Rayburn's job has been
to give students a chance
in life. Now battling ovar-
ian cancer, Rayburn and
her family are hoping the
community will give her a
chance at life.
Rayburn, 39, was a sec-
ond-grade teacher at Oak-
land Avenue Charter School
before leaving last fall to
take a teaching position in
Lake County, where she
lives. She was diagnosed
last August before she could
begin her new assignment.
Friends of Tish and Todd
Rayburn have organized a
golf tournament and dinner
to raise money for the fam-
ily which also includes
two young sons, Tucker
and Tanner. The benefit is
Saturday, April 26, at Pali-
sades Golf & Country Club
in Lake County. The tour-
nament will have a 1 p.m.
shotgun start, and then the
outdoor adult dinner and
awards ceremony will begin
at 6.
Players can sign up as a
foursome or individual. The
cost is $100 and includes


golf, cart rental and dinner
ticket.
Anyone wanting to attend
the dinner only from 6-10
p.m. can pay $35 per person
or $60 per couple. There will
be a cash bar only. The eve-
ning will also include raffles
and a silent auction plus mu-
sic by The Lost Boys.
For more information, to
register for golf or purchase
dinner tickets, go to www.
TishRayburnBenefit.com.
To sponsor the event or
provide a silent auction or
raffle item, send to Kris
Becker, 3289 Tumbling
River Drive, Clermont, FL
34711. Payments for golf
or dinner and sponsorship
checks should be made pay-
able to Tish Rayburn Family
Trust and sent to Jill Swidler,
c/o Rayburn Benefit, 11101
Versailles Blvd., Clermont,
FL 34711.
All payments and do-
nations must be received
by April 17. To receive a
form, send an e-mail to
kristinebecker@ earthlink-
net.

Rayburn, visit her journal at

said.
The effects of long-term
water withdrawals on area
lakes and rivers is largely un-
known. If permitted, Thomas
doubts it will be possible to
regulate or enforce the with-
drawals.
"It is also difficult to de-
termine just how long a re-
source will sustain massive
withdrawals," Thomas added.
"We may see a very expensive
project do permanent damage
to ecosystems and still not last
very long."
An alternate solution could
already exist here in West Or-
ange County.
Water Conserv II, located in
rural south Winter Garden, is
considered the largest water
reuse project of its kind in
the world. Co-owned by the
city of Orlando and Orange
County, the facility has been
working to recharge the Flor-
ida aquifer for 21 years.
The Conserv II system con-
sists of two water reclamation
facilities, one in Orlando and
the other in Winter Garden,
connected by 21 miles of
10-foot-wide underground
pipes. The Winter Garden site
was selected decades ago as
the ideal location for water to
seep through the ground and
enter the aquifer.
At the Winter Garden plant,
a 70-mile pipeline network
distributes reclaimed water
from Orlando to 59 agricultur-
al, commercial and residential
customers. Reclaimed water
not used for irrigation is dis-
tributed to the facility's Rapid
Infiltration Basins (RIBs) to
recharge the aquifer. The net-
work contains eight sites with
71 RIBs and 150 RIB cells
spread out over 3,725 acres.
"There's no reason to pull.
water from Lake Apopka,"
Thomas said. "Cities should
be able to use water from
Conserv II."
While the cities of Ocoee
and Winter Garden and the
town of Oakland have pledged
not to withdraw water from
Lake Apopka, Thomas and
Phipps criticized the city of
Apopka for "not showing
any interest in controlling its
growth or water consump-
tion."
In Oakland, for example,
town leaders imposed a mor-
atorium on issuing building


permits in most parts of the
town due to water shortages.
Thomas and Phipps argued
that SJWMD should not grant
consumptive-use permits to
any city that doesn't dem-
onstrate strong conservation
efforts.
"[SJWMD] needs to get a
little tougher," Phipps said.
A possible topic of discus-
sion at next week's FOLA
meeting could be tiered billing
for water usage. In an effort to
encourage its residents to con-
serve water, many municipali-
ties throughout the state have
adopted the tiered system in
which prices dramatically in-
crease for elevated levels of
usage.
"For a long time, water
has been so cheap that we've
taken it for granted," Phipps
said. "When it starts hitting
people's wallets, then it starts
to make a difference."
With half of Florida's water
being poured on residential
lawns, individual homeowners
have the power to help prevent
a water-shortage crisis while
also saving money. A home's
irrigation needs can be greatly
reduced with Florida-friendly
landscaping, which consists
of native drought-tolerant
plants and grass that require
little irrigation, fertilizer or
maintenance.
Thomas' Biosphere Nurs-
ery has become a local mecca
for acquiring conservation-
friendly plants and learning
how to transform a tradition-
ally landscaped yard into a
"bioscaped" or "Xeriscaped"
lawn.
"The nursery is a product of,
what we believe in," Phipps
said.
In addition to selecting the
appropriate plants and grass,
a key ingredient is reducing
the size of a lawn'swide-
open spaces. St. Augustine
turf, which is predominantly
used in Central Florida, is
detrimental to water conser-
vation, according to Phipps.
Although redesigning a lawn
may present initial expenses
for homeowners, she added,
the money saved on water us-
age will make it worthwhile.
Local residents can learn
more about water conser-
vation at the April 3 FOLA
meeting by logging onto
www.fola.org.


On another matter, the
mayor and City Commission
voted 3-1 to give themselves
pensions. Voting for the pen-
sion were Mayor Scott Van-
dergrift and commission-
ers Joel Keller and Rusty
Johnson. Voting against the
proposal was Commissioner
Scott Anderson. Commis-
sioner Gary Hood was not
present.
Elected officials who serve
nine years or more will be eli-
gible for lifetime benefits out
of the city employees' pen-
sion fund. Three members of
the commission now eligible
for pensions are the mayor,
Johnson and Anderson. Their
monthly pay based on their
years of service will range
from approximately $200 to
$500 a month.
This amendment to the city
employees' pension plan also
added the city manager to the
plan. City employees and the
city pay into the pension fund
(now worth approximately
$20 million) for the employ-
ees' future benefits. The pen-
sions for the elected officials
will come out of this fund
without any financial contri-
butions from them.
According to City Manager
Frank, both taxpayers' money
and the employees' fund will
be utilized for his and the
mayor's and commissioners'
pensions.
The city will have to make
an initial contribution to the
fund of $40,000 to include the
city manager and the mayor
and commissioners in the pen-
sion fund. Human Resources
Director Jim Carnicella said
this amount, which will be put
into the 2009-10 city budget,
could be much lower depend-
ing on how well the pension
fund's investments do.
According to Frank, the
mayor and commission bene-
fits would cost around $500 a
year. "It'sa very small cost,"
he said.
Keller was in favor of the

Ocoee


Brent Saucer is ne

bishop in Ocoee


By Victoria Laney

D. Brent Saucer is the new
bishop of the Ocoee Ward of the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-
day Saints. After his name was
announced at the March 8 Sac-
rament Meeting, he gave a big
sigh and looked around the con-
gregation, gathering his thoughts
before he spoke.
Previously Bishop Saucer was
a counselor to Bishop Michael
Lavoie, whom he replaces.
"I was constantly amazed at
how this young man was wise
beyond his years," said Bishop
Saucer. "It was easy to be his
counselor because he counseled
me."
He also praised his wife,
Geraldine: "I have been blessed
with one of the best wives in the
world. The only time she com-
plains is when I deserve it."
He expressed his regret that
he can no longer work as closely
with the Spanish-speaking con-
gregations in the Orlando South
Stake. An architect, he spent
several years living in South
America where he designed
buildings for the church. Cur-
rently, he is an associate partner
with Hanson Professional Ser-
vices in Maitland.
Bishops receive no compensa-
tion, so they support themselves
through other employment. Bish-
op Lavoie is moving to become a
manager for Cox Enterprises in
the Ocala/Gainesville area.
Bishop Lavoie, in hand-
ing over a key to the chapel to
Bishop Saucer, praised both his
successor and his wife, Lisa: "I
could not have served without a

your lawn in shape for the
summer months from Ben
Cox of Massey Green-Up
Services.

wife who sustained me whole-
heartedly. She let me be called
out in the middle of the night and
never complained."
He officiated at 17 funerals
during his three years of service
to the Ocoee Ward, including
one the first week he was called.
He only performed one wed-
ding because most are held at
the Temple on Apopka Vineland
Road rather than in chapels like
the one where the Ocoee Ward
meets on Silver Star Road. He
was responsible for about 800,
people until about half of the
congregation was assigned to
a new Winter Garden Ward in
December.
Bishop Saucer will have two
counselors to assist him, Craig
Bell of Orlando and Jefferson
Huling of Gotha. Bell works
as a computer programmer for
Hilton International, and Huling
sells concrete forming equipment
for Peri Formwork Systems in
Groveland.
Bishop Lavoie's counselors,
David Pilcher and David Opif-
icius of Ocoee, willbe given new
assignments.

Elrod and Bill Curdts, founding members; and Jim Shanks, capital campaign coordinator.


Betty Turner (from left), Marilyn Hattaway, Carol Wick, Dave Joswick, Carolyn Moore,
Deanne Irwin and Elise Saunders took time for a photo at Maggiano's Restaurant at
Pointe Orlando during the March meeting of the Central Florida Women's League.


Breaking ground for the new sanctuary at Church of the Ascension are (1-r): Father Jim
Sorvillo Sr.; Jim Shanks, capital campaign coordinator; Bill Curdts and Jean and Bob
Elrod, founding members; Dave Williams Sr., warden; and Bob Yeaple, building commit-
tee chairman.

Church of the Ascension holds

ground-breaking for new sanctuary


On March 9, the Episcopal
Church of the Ascension cel-
ebrated as it broke ground for a
new sanctuary. The one service
that day was at 10 a.m. and was
attended by approximately 300
people as the congregation was
joined by friends, family and
even some visiting founding
members of the church.
The service opened with mu-
sic by the youth choir. The Praise
Team led the congregation into
worship, and the service con-
tinued with the blessing of the


ground. Representatives of the
founding members, the vestry,
the capital campaign and the
building committee were given
hard hats and gold shovels to
turn over the dirt where the new
altar will be located. Father Jim
Sorvillo Sr. welcomed all who
wanted their turn with a shovel
to do so after the service.
A barbecue lunch followed,
with many activities for the
children, including pony rides,
a bounce house, bean bag games
and a popcorn machine.


Church of the Ascension,
located on South Apopka-
Vineland Road, was founded in
1980 by a group from Church
of the Messiah in Winter Gar-
den. The current sanctuary was
built a few years later, and the
education building followed
shortly after that. This year, a
new 300-seat sanctuary is being
built, which will double the cur-
rent sanctuary capacity. Hope-
fully, the dedication of the new
sanctuary.will take place in time
for Christmas services.

An education on birds
Guests gathered at the Oakland Nature Preserve's am-
phitheater on a recent Saturday to watch a performance
of Doris Mager ('The Eagle Lady') and her feathered
friends. The friends she brought with her included a Great
Horned Owl, a baby Eastern Screech Owl, an American
Kestrel and a Crested Caracara. Mager travels all over the


United States educating people about the 'birds of prey.'
There was considerable audience participation, including
(above) a student from Dr. Phillips High School demon-
strating the flight of the Crested Caracara, the national
bird of Mexico. ONP officials hope Mager will return for
another performance in the fall.

West Orange water polo.

qualifies for district playoffs


The West Orange High boys
and girls water polo teams
are headed for the district
playoffs. The Warriors quali-
fied for postseason play with
victories on March 14 over
Edgewater.
The boys team used a to-
tal team effort to crush the
Eagles 24-11, while the Lady
Warriors edged out their op-
ponent 7-4. Caitlin Bloom
made the final goal off her
own steal with an assist by
Stefanie Carrier.
"The girls always try their
hardest and their efforts are
really paying off," said junior
co-captain Katie Macqueen:
"We're really excited to be
in the district playoffs for the
first time in four years."
The following day, West
Orange hosted Hagerty with
the Lady Warriors winning
10-2. Bloom opened the scor-
ing at the end of the first quar-
ter, and Ashley Coipel scored
2 goals in the final minutes,
one coming off an assist by
Carrier. Bloom led all players
with 8 of West Orange's 24
steals, and goalie Adria Bell
saved 12 of 14 shots to lead
the defense.
The boys shut out Hagerty
with a combination of skilled
scoring and stellar defense.
Goalie Alex Litz stood out
with 7 saves, while the War-
riors totaled 28 steals. Co-
captain Jake Smith accounted
for 10 steals, and Cody Cana-
van and Matt Walsh combined
for 10 more. Smith also led all
Warriors with 5 goals. Cana-
van added 4 goals, and Jake
Carter, Jonathan Singh and
Robert Sheppard each added
goals.
"It was a total team effort
where everybody gave 100
percent," said Smith. "We
hope to keep this momentum
through districts."
Both the Warrior boys and


Fry tosses

no-hitter for

Foundation
Freshman sensation Ali Fry
pitched Foundation Acad-
emy's second no-hitter of
the year in leading the var-
sity fastpitch softball team
to victory over Lighthouse
Christian.
The Lady Lions improved
fo 6-4 and continue to hold
second place in the district
standings. Without a single
junior or senior on the squad,
Foundation looks to continue
improving in preparation for
the district tournament.
In other Foundation sports,
the elementary basketball sea-
son ended last week. Every
team enjoyed some success,
and several played for league
championships. The players
showed great effort and im-
provement throughout the
season.

girls teams stumbled with
losses to Olympia last week.
Last Friday night against
Osceola, the Lady Warriors
suffered another loss but the
boys team triumphed.
Carrier and Stephanie
Gainey finished with 2 goals
apiece in the girls team's loss.
The boys came out fighting
and saw Smith score on the
swim-off tip with an assist by
Walsh. Trailing 4-3 at half-


time, West Orange made of-
fensive and defensive adjust-
ments that led to a radically
different second half.
The Warriors went on to
outscore Osceola 11-3 af-
ter halftime for a 14-7 final
score. Aggressive defensive
play led to steals by Smith (7)
and Walsh (5). Carter and Ca-
navan led the team in scoring,
while Litz collected 13 saves
in goal.


Foundation freshman pitcher Ali Fry hurled a no-hitter in
the Lady Lions' softball victory last week.


girls tennis teams continue
to play well this season.
Each team has suffered only
one loss and has continued to


get stronger with each match.
The Lions hope to carry their
momentum into the district
tournament in a few weeks.

Unbeaten Titans win OVA tournament


The Olympia High varsity
boys volleyball team has been
pounding the competition this
season.
After winning this month's
.Orlando Volleyball Academy
(OVA) Invitational tourna-
ment, the Titans (8-0) ranked
No. 1 in the Orlando Sentinel's
Super 6 standings. Olympia
has also been ranked as high
as No. 2 in the entire state by


the Web site floridavolleyball.
com.
The Titans claimed the OVA
championship by defeating
No. 3-ranked Bishop Moore
and knocking off No. 1 seed
Lyman in the tournament fi-
nals.
Ian Karbiener, a 6-foot,
4-inch junior, has become a
superstar for Olympia. Coach
Troy Helton described the


right-side-hitting southpaw as
one of the state's best players.
Helping make Karbiener look
good has been sophomore Tra-
vis Helton, who the Olympia
coach listed as one of the best
setters in Florida.
Senior outside hitter Arthur
Richards has broken out with
powerful and energetic play,
while senior Jason' Stewart
leads the team in digs.


The West Orange High var-
sity fastpitch softball team im-
proved to 14-4 with victories
over Colonial, Harmony and
Cypress Creek last week. Lady
Warrior ace Taylor Fawbush
ensured the wins by allowing
only 4 total hits over the three-
game stretch.
Fawbush fired a 1-hitter with
9 strikeouts to lead West Orange
to a 1-0 victory over Colonial
last Friday night. A bunt single
by Lauren Smith advanced Val
Proulx, who was knocked home
by Laci Schwenneker for the
game-winning run. Danielle
Brewer added a base hit.
"What we have done is get
the big hit and make the big play
when it has mattered the most,
and that's what good teams do,"
Coach Bobby Brewer said. "We
have played a tough schedule
and it does not get any easier
down the stretch."
In the 3-1 win over Harmony,
Fawbush pitched a complete
game 2-hitter with 8 strikeouts.
Jasmine Butler led the offense
with a 3-for-3 performance.

Winning streak
ends at 9 for
Warrior baseball
The West Orange High varsity
baseball team saw its nine-game
winning streak snapped last Fri-
day night with a 5-3 extra-inning
loss to University.
"Blake Dieterich took a tough
loss but pitched as good that
night as he has this season," said
WOHS Coach Jesse Marlo.
Dieterich finished with 9
strikeouts and only 3 hits al-
lowed. West Orange held a 3-2
lead in the seventh inning until
Dieterich gave up a home run.
Mason Williams took over in
relief and surrendered a 2-run
homer. Dieterich led the War-
riors at the plate by going 3-for-4.
Phillip McMannen went 2-for-3
with 2 runs scored.
Earlier last week, West Orange
cruised to a 10-0 victory over Ev-
ans for the team's ninth straight.
Williams pitched for the win.
Williams used his bat to propel
West Orange to victory over East
Ridge on March 14. The back-
and-forth battle ended with Wil-
liams smacking a walk-off home
run in the bottom of the seventh
inning. Nolan Fontana added a
pair of home runs and 3 RBIs.
The Warriors finished with five
home runs and four spectacular
diving catches in the field. Albert
Lefran, Aaron Spragg and Phillip
McMannen also connected for
base hits.
"It was one of the best games
I've seen in a while," Marlo said.
"That game is what high school
baseball is all about."
West Orange High will host its
Little League Night as the War-
rior varsity baseball team takes
on Edgewater on Friday, April
11, at 6 p.m.
Parking is available in the stu-
dent lot off Warrior Road. Adults
admission is $4.


Molly Billue connected for an.
RBI triple, while Smith, Proulx
and Schwenneker all added
base hits.
West Orange opened the
scoring in the first inning when
Kelli Lopez reached base on
an error, then Butler got a hit
and both players scored on an
error by the Harmony second
baseman. Fawbush walked in
the fourth inning and scored on
Billue's triple.
"That was a good win for
us against a good team," said
Coach Brewer. "Jasmine has
gotten on fire for us, and when
she gets on base, we usually
score runs."
Fawbush provided another
stellar performance two days
earlier by striking out 10 and
allowing only one hit in West
Orange's 3-0 win over Cypress
Creek. Lopez, Butler, Brewer,
Fawbush, Billue, Missy Harvey,
Proulx and Schwenneker all
performed well at the plate.
Lopez scored the opening
run by getting a hit, stealing
second base and then reaching


home on a throwing error. The
Lady Warriors added two runs
in the fourth inning off walks
by Smith and Butler, a bunt
single by Schwenneker, a hit
by Proulx and a sacrifice fly
by Brewer.
The WOHS junior varsity
softball team remained unde-
feated through last week. The
J.V. Lady Warriors defeated
Cypress Creek 17-1. Rachel
Housego played great defense;
smacked an inside-the-park
home run and finished with 6
RBIs. Other standouts includ-
ed Mikaela Renschler, Sydnie
Cobb, Taylor Barrow and pitch-
er Kelsey Laneave, who threw ai
complete-game 1-hitter.
The J.V. team finished last
week with a 14-0-1 season re-
cord after a 8-8 tie with South
Lake. West Orange rallied
from a three-run deficit to tie
the game off hits by Alyssa
Thompson and Rheann Zie-
linski. Great games were also
provided by Alexis Roberts,
Larissa Piodamani, Emily Ross
and Breanna Sniffen.


Olympia boys tennis now 12-0
Titan tennis player Sam Wood serves to win his singles
match over Winter Park. The Olympia High varsity boys
tennis team improved to 12-0 last week with victories over
Timber Creek and Winter Park, along with a ruling that a
previous match against Spruce Creek did not count as a
loss because it had been called due to poor weather. Also
winning matches for Olympia last week were Levan Clark,
John Cappabianca and Diego Pires.

of the heart is to make exercise
a regular part of everyday life.
Hoops for Heart teaches stu-
dents how exercise benefits the
heart and shows that volunteer-

Senior active in
presidential campaign
Windermere Prep senior
Nick Autiello got involved in
the race for U.S. president the
old-fashioned way.
"I began by going down to
the Florida campaign head-
quarter of Rudy Giuliani in
December," said Autiello. "I
decided to volunteer because
I felt strongly about the candi-
date and I was looking for an
opportunity to make a differ-
ence."
Autiello, 17, picked Giuliani
because he had been his per-
sonal hero for a long time.
"Even before he became
'America's Mayor' after 9/11,
the job he did in getting rid of
the mafia and cleaning up New
York City was a great example
to me," he said. "After 9/11, I
remember the first thing that
came to my mind was that he
should run for president."
As far as policy, Autiello
said he gravitated toward Giu-
liani as a candidate for a lot of
the same reasons many other
young people in the Republi-
can party did.
"For us, Rudy offered a uni-
fying voice instead of a divid-
ing one," Autiello explained.
Working on the campaign
for Autiello consisted of sev-
eral days a week making
phone calls, registering voters
and going door-to-door in the
name of his candidate. As the
Florida primary grew closer,
he had several opportunities
to travel with Giuliani around
the state. He also got more in-
volved in the official "Students
for Rudy" campaign coalition.
On the day of the Florida
primary after two days
without sleep Autiello was
told if Giuliani did well that
night, Autiello would be made
national co-chair of the new
"High School Students for
Rudy" coalition. But that night
at the Portofino. Bay Hotel,
watching the returns and be-

tiello's hand during his primary night stop at the Giuliani
campaign headquarters. Autiello is a senior at Windermere
Prep.


ing quoted as saying he was
sure Giuliani would go on to
California, it became clear to
Autiello that Giuliani's run for
president was over.
Getting to stand directly
in front of Giuliani during his
concession speech was "an
amazing and life-changing ex-
perience for me," he said.
For on finishing his speech,
Giuliani turned to Autiello and
said, "The future of this coun-
try is in good hands because
it is in your hands."
"What I enjoyed most dur-
ing the campaign was the
opportunity to meet other stu-
dents like myself from around
the country who shared the
same interests and ideas that
I did," said Autiello. "I made a
lot of lifelong friends and con-
nections working on the cam-
paign that I really wouldn't
have made anywhere else."
Will Autiello work on Mc-
Cain's campaign?
"For now, I'm concentrating
on finishing my senior year,"
said Autiello. "But after gradu-
ation I'm planning on getting


more involved in the cam-
paign."
Since Autiello turns 18 in
July, this will be the first presi-
dential election he will .be eli-
gible to vote in. He has been
accepted to Florida State Uni-
versity and is excited about at-
tending the school since both
his aunt and cousin graduated
from there. He plans to major
in political science and hopes
to go on to New York Univer-
sity Law School and become
a lawyer. ,
"In the future, politics is def-
initely on the horizon some-
where," he said.
Autiello is part of the first
senior class that will graduate
from WPS in May. He belongs
to the Latin Honor Society and
is president of the new WPS
Habitat For Humanity chap-
ter.
Away from school, Autiello
is involved in starting a chap-
ter of Teenage Republicans
in Orange County and has a
part-time job at Disney World.
He is the son of Nicholas and
Carol Autiello of Windermere.

Oakland Avenue Charter


Windermere


Mrs. Young's 2nd-grade class at Oakland Avenue Charter School celebrates Dr. Suess'
birthday.


Windermere Elementary is pleased to partner with Penguin's Paradise of Maguire Road
to help raise funds for the 'Nurse Sue' fund-raising program. Chris Padoan, owner of
Penguin's Paradise, donated a gift certificate for the Book Fair, appeared on morning an-
nouncements to promote a Gelato Contest, visited students during lunch and was a hit
at the school carnival. Most recently, he invited the entire Windermere family to stop by
to give kindergartner Brandon Kohl's winning contest recipe (Strawberry Fudge Cake) a
try. A portion of the proceeds was presented to Debbie Negrete, PTA chair of the 'Nurse
Sue' fund-raising. Wednesday, May 14, is the last Penguin's Paradise get-together for
the.school year. Pictured are (l-r): Miles Ricks, John DuBois, Olivia DuBois, Easton Ricks,
Maddy Woy, Kristen Armillei, Reagan Morgan and Jesse Woy.


Spring Lake


Teachers of the Year honored at 'Round Up'
Dr. Jennifer Reeves, area superintendent of the Southwest Learning Community, hosted
a 'Round Up' recently to honor all the Teachers of the Year within the learning community.
The event was held at Sadler Elementary. A special thank-you goes to the businesses
that helped to support the event, including Bubbalou's Barbecue, Everyday Mathematics,
Red's Market and The Learning Tree. Everyone was very grateful for the honored staff
who had been nominated by their peers at the schools.


Two special guests included the Teachers of the Year from Palmetto Elementary and
from Dr. Phillips High. Melissa Hall from Palmetto (at right) was once a student at DPHS
with Linda Hoenstine as 1 of her teachers. This year, they were both selected by their
peers to represent their schools. In addition, Hoenstine will be retiring this year, making
this honor a fitting tribute to her career.


William McGuire and his electrical engineering team visited Spring Lake Elementary re-
cently to boast the 5th-graders' interest in the field of engineering. They set up 5 stations
at the pavilion and demonstrated how force is used to cause change, how weight af-
fects flight, how following instructions is important (students instructed a robot to make
a peanut butter and jelly sandwich) and how rockets fly. Students created rockets and
used Alka Seltzer to make them blast off. The engineers used a pulley to have a tug of
war between the girls and boys, and the pulley made the girls win very time. At the end
of the presentation, the team awarded a certificate and $500 for the school.

tion.

to contact the Clerk's office. An
employee of the SFWMD's
Clerk's office will receive and
file the petition.

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


Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks
in all circumstances, for this is Gods will for you
in Christ Jesus. I Thessalonians 5: 16-18

Would it surprise you to know that Go4'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 and 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) I
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.
From the believers at First Baptist Winter Garden
