be here too soon, so now is
the time to take advantage of
the "nice weather" by spend-

Scott Boyd, Rick
SGeller and Shannon
Gravitte spoke at
last week's West
Orange Chamber
political forum.

By Mary Anne Swickerath

Crime, tax cuts, the falter-
ing economy, transportation
and development are on the
th minds of the three candidates
who are seeking the District 1
Orange County Commission
seat being vacated by Teresa
Jacobs. At a business break-
fast and political forum hosted
by the West Orange Chamber
of Commerce last Wednes-
day, Scott Boyd, Rick Geller
and Shannon Gravitte each
expressed their opinions and
plans concerning the near fu-
ture of Wept Orange County.
All three want to see a stron-
ger law-enforcement .presence
in unincorporated Orange
County.


W.G. passes
new code for
downtown
The City
Commission
unanimously
passed the
measure to ensure
businesses would
be kept up.


By Michael Laval

Downtown Winter Garden
business owners will now have
to abide by the city's new main-
tenance code.
The City Commission unani-
mously passed the ordinance at
last Thursday's meeting. The
measure is designed to ensure
that properties throughout Win-
ter Garden's downtown district
keep awnings free of holes,
mold or faded colors and build-
ings free of dry rot or chipped or
faded paint.
The Downtown Winter Gar-
den Merchants Guild, as well as
the majority of business owners
in the downtown area, supported
the ordinance, according to City
Manager Michael Bollhoefer.
In other business, the elected
officials approved a profession-
al services agreement for en-
vironmental, geotechnical and
materials testing services with
Nodarse and Associates.

Three candidates for the Orange County Commission took
turns answering questions at last week's breakfast meet-
ing of the West Orange Chamber.


Gravitte, whose "No. 1 pri-
ority" is public safety, said. "If
we're not safe, all the other is-
sues are secondary."
"Crime is a big problem,"
commented Boyd, who rec-
ommended working with at-
risk youth before the age of 12
through public-private part-
nerships, such as mentoring
programs.
Geller said, "It should not


take an elephant rampaging
through your neighborhood
to get a police presence....
We need a higher level of ser-
vice."
When asked what were the
economic assets of West Or-
ange County, Gravitte held up

Smoldering Granulite

at fertilizer plant causes

evacuations in W.G.


By Amy Quesinberry

From the looks of the smoke
in the air last Wednesday, it
seemed there must have been
quite a fire in northeast Winter
Garden. The Winter Garden
Fire Department received a
call last Wednesday afternoon
and responded to Diamond R.
Fertilizer Co. at 501 Hennis
Road.
There was no fire, accord-
ing to Winter Garden Fire
Chief John Williamson. There
was, however, a hopper full of
smoking New York Granulite,
also called sludge, biosolids
or human waste. Police and
fire crews from Ocoee and
Orange County also respond-
ed to the call.
The chief said one Diamond
R employee was taken to the
hospital with respiratory prob-
lems and then released.


8 93739 00100 o


Nearby streets were closed
off, and 87 homes were evac-
uated from the Covington
Chase subdivision and the
neighborhood to the south,
both on Division Street.
These residents were taken
to a relief shelter set up at
Dillard Street Elementary
School, where they remained
until they could return home
at 9 p.m.
Orange County's Office
of Emergency Management
brought food and drinks to
the shelter, and the Salvation
Army provided sandwiches
for police and fire personnel.
In addition, the Winter Gar-
den Pizza Co., American Pie
Pizza Co. and Benchwarmers
brought and distributed food
to the workers.
Williamson said there was
no fire, so there was no struc-
tural damage to the facility.
The state fire marshal was
conducting an investigation

Oakland must install 500,000-gallon tank


A water study has
indicated that an
additional tank
will sufficiently
supply water until
the town's 20-year
build-out.

By Amy Quesinberry

Oakland soon could be is-
suing its residents the chal-
lenge of restricting their water
usage to 100 gallons per per-
son per day. The average per
resident right now is 220.
Scott Breitenstein of CPH
Engineers Inc. presented a
draft of Oakland's Water Util-
ity Master Plan at the March
25 Oakland Town Commis-
sion meeting. The town re-
quested CPH prepare the plan
"with the objective of identi-
fying necessary improvements
for the development of the
town's water system to meet
current and projected water
demands through a 20-year
planning horizon," according
to the plan summary Breiten-
A'i


stein submitted.
Accordingto t he report,
the system is inadequate to
"consistently meet the town's
water needs during high-flow
conditions" and "there are
documented times that during
high water usage.. .the town's
water demands could not be
met."
It did say, however, that the
town's water quality is con-
sidered "very good" and cur-
rently meets all water qual-
ity standards regulated by the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection. This
means the town will not have
to change its current treatment
methods.
Oakland's water system
serves 945 service connec-
tions (2,586 people) and de-
livers approximately .6 mil-
lion gallons per day of potable
water.
Breitenstein said the aver-
age daily water use is pro-
jected to increase by the year
2028 to 1.64 million gallons.
Oakland operates a
100,000-gallon elevated stor-
age tank, and the water flows


by gravity to the ABC Bus
Facility, which provides a
150,000-gallon ground stor-
age tank and three high-ser-
vice pumps to the distribution
system. The main water facil-
ity is served by two wells that
pump groundwater to the top
of the elevated storage tank
after disinfection.
CPH outlined recommenda-
tions for improving the water
system and system reliability.
These included changing the
water treatment and pump-
ing system to conventional
ground storage and high-ser-
vice pumping, maintaining
the elevated storage and ABC
pump station, upgrading spe-
cific lines to accommodate
needed flow in certain areas
of the town and pursuing a
reliability interconnect on the
east side with the city of Win-
ter Garden.
Breitenstein said CPH has
determined that the town
must install a 500,000-gallon
storage tank and that it should
be sufficient until the town's
build-out in an estimated 20
years. The only town-ovned


property that could be used
for this tank is VanderLey
Park.
Breitenstein is expected to
return to another Town Com-
mission meeting in about a
month.
Water is certainly a hot
topic right now in the town.
One person who is feeling
this strain is Marc Grimes, a
business owner who wants to
enlarge his 700-square-foot
building to 3,200 feet. Town
officials say he must pay ad-
ditional impact fees because
his expansion is so large it
could generate more traffic.
For four months, Grimes
has been trying to get site-plan
approval for his expansion at
5 E. Oakland Ave. His plans
include adding two toilets and
two sinks, which wouldn't use
much more water, he said.
"His water usage may not
be great," said Town Planner
Roland Magyar, "but we need
everybody to pay their share.
We're in a position, and we
need every dollar. He needs to

Ocoee stores cited
for violations
On Friday, March 28, the
Ocoee Police Department and
agents from the State Division
of Alcoholic Beverages and
Tobacco conducted Operation
"Underage Alcohol Free." This
joint operation sent undercover,
underage buyers into conve-

God looked around his garden
and found an empty place
he then looked down upon the earth
and saw her tired face
so he kissed her cheek
and held her in his arms
he closed her weary eyelids
then tenderly whispered "peace be thine"
and laid her down to rest
God's garden must be beautiful
for he ONLY takes the best
however she didn't go alone
for a part of us went with her
the day God called her home.

County warns citizens about deed letters


The Orange County Comptrol-,
ler is warning citizens that some
Orange County residents have
received letters from companies
offering to sell them a certified
copy of their deed. These cop-
ies are being offered for prices
ranging from $50 to $100. The
letters periodically appear in Or-
ange County and are often con-
centrated in a specific zip code or
neighborhood so that neighbors
receive the letters at the same


time.
"Your deed is a public re-
cord and is permanently main-
tained and preserved by the
Orange County Comptroller's
Office," said Comptroller Mar-
tha Haynie.
"You do not have to pay a pri-
vate company for a copy. You can
view and print (for free) a non-
certified copy of your deed from
our Web site: www.occompt.
com. Should you ever need a cer-


tified copy, the cost is $1 a page
and $1.50 for the certification. In
most cases, the total cost will be
between $2.50 and $3.50."
In addition, Haynie said,
"While there does not appear to
be anything illegal about this of-
fering, it is a totally unnecessary
expense for the homeowner to
incur."

Comptroller's Official Records
Department at 407-836-5115.


that worked with business interests to im-
prove its commercial areas and develop new
ones.
"One of the most important assets is the
429 Western Beltway," said Geller. "Without
it [Winter Garden Village at] Fowler Groves
would not be there." He also named the West
Orange Chamber as an important local asset
that can help attract high-level businesses.
Boyd commented that the "beautiful
weather" of Central Florida was important
in attracting residents and businesses and
such large-scale developments as Horizon
West south of Winter Garden. He also added
that road issues could be improved through a
partnership between Lake and Orange coun-
ties.
All three agreed that Horizon West has not
fulfilled its early promise of creative mixed-
use planning, and each supported moving in
the infrastructure for the construction of the
long-planned Town Center.
In a discussion of budget shortfalls for
Orange County, the candidates were asked
how they would prioritize the budget for
District 1.
Boyd answered that he thought it would be
necessary "to trim the fat off a lot of areas,"
such as road maintenance but he would not
touch public safety funds.
Gravitte said, "We will have to do more

pay his fair share."
Grimes argued that he al-
ready paid impact fees when
he constructed the original
building 12 years ago.
The commission agreed
to allow Grimes to move
forward with submitting his
site plan.
While the town was dis-
cussing its various water
issues, Larry Roberts, town
engineer, praised the com-
mission for revising the irri-
gation schedule, which went
into effect Jan. 1.
"The message you got out
[to the residents] is finally
working," Roberts said.
On a related matter, Mayor
Kathy Stark read a proclama-
tion declaring April Water
Conservation Month in the
town.
Also taking place at the
March 25 Oakland Town
Commission meeting was the
swearing-in of Mayor Stark
and commissioners Joseph
McMullen, Mike Satterfield
and Willie Welch. All will
serve another four-year term,
except for McMullen, who
will complete the final two
years after being appointed
two years ago to fill the seat
of former Commissioner Bill
Sullivan when he resigned.
In other business, the elect-
ed officials:
discussed eliminating
town employees' ability to
accrue vacation and sick pay
from year to year. The town
is updating its policy manual,
and this practice was a poten-
tial liability that had to be cal-
culated into every budget.
Mayor Stark said the prob-
lem is that some employees
don't cash in these benefits
for years and, by then, they
more than likely have a high-
er salary and "the town is car-
rying that higher pay,"
Police Chief Tim Driscoll
explained this would create
a hardship on the depart-
ment because some of his
officers can't take vacations
as planned because of work-
related circumstances.
Town Manager Maureen
Rischitelli said she would
bring the discussion back to
the table at the next Town
Commission meeting.
voted to spend $4,050
from the general contingency
fund for Renaissance Group


to review a traffic study pre-
viously conducted on Oak-
land Avenue.
The study, done earlier this
year, indicated that all traf-
fic utilizing Oakland Avenue
from the new Oakland Park
subdivision will use State
Road 545 to the east of the
neighborhood. The town be-
lieves more people will use
Tubb Street. The results of
this study could affect the
road improvements Oakland
Park developers will have to
make.
"We cannot afford to make
a mistake on this traffic
study," said Mayor Stark.
OK'd the second reading
and public hearing of the pre-
liminary subdivision plat for
Remington Plaza. One of the
conditions is that no building
permit or certificate of oc-
cupancy will be given until
the town's water facility de-
ficiency is rectified. The de-
veloper, Ryan Langley, wants
to subdivide the 15.86 acres
into an eight-lot commercial
subdivision. The land is south
of Highway 50 and west of

last week to determine the
source, but the chief said heat
was most likely the cause. Mois-
ture was ruled out, he said.
"It took us so long [to get
the situation under control] be-
cause the hopper caused us ac-
cess problems and was so hot
it melted and made the sludge
turn into a lava-type consis-
tency," the chief said. "When it
cooled, it caked and clogged up
the funnel."
According to Williamson,
once the sludge caked, fire fight-
ers had to "chip it out in chunks
and bring it outside to continue
cooling off."
At Diamond R, moisture is re-
moved from the sludge, which
is then processed into small pel-
lets to mix into the fertilizer. The
hopper, similar to a huge funnel,
carries the mixed fertilizer down
to bags waiting to be filled.

Florida citizens know that during bad
economic times, governments must care-
fully weigh how they spend taxpayer dol-
lars.
But, the board and membership of Hen-
ry Nehrling Society were upset last week
when they learned the Florida Legislature
was considering eliminating Cultural and
Historic Preservation grant programs from
the 2008-09 budget.
The Nehrling house and botanic gardens,
in Gotha are the last remnants of the site
that Henry Nehrling, a noted horticulturist,
used to test and propagate more than 3,000
new and rare plants, many of which are
common in the Florida landscape today.
It was the first experimental botanical gar-
den in the state. When Nehrling settled in
Gotha in 1884, his property was 40 acres
in size, but now only six acres of the origi-
nal site remain intact.
The property is on the National Register
of Historic Places and on Florida's list of
Significant Properties.
In a grant application process last year,
the Nehrling Society's application was
ranked No. 19 by the Florida Historical
Commission, making it one of 20 projects
to be considered by the legislature for a
grant appropriation this spring.
The Nehrling Society is working dili-


Dear Mayor Vandergrift
and the city of Ocoee Commissioners,
On behalf of the town of Windermere, a
hearty congratulations on receiving your Ad-
vanced Life Support accreditation. As you
know, this is an achievement that not only
impacts the safety of Ocoee's residents, but
Windermere's as well.
Our town is proud to be served by the Ocoee


gently to purchase and preserve the Neh-
rling Gardens in Gotha, and the grant is
an integral part of the plan.
In addition to preserving the house and
gardens, the society plans to establish an
educational center.
The legislature has not only the fiscal
responsibility for the state but also a fi-
duciary duty to preserve Florida's rich
historic and cultural heritage.
We encourage the legislature to fund
these Historic Preservation Special Cat-
egories grants, making approximately
$300,000 available to save the Henry Neh-
rling Estate and Palm Cottage Gardens
from development. The funding would
also provide an economic stimulus for the
Rural Settlement of Gotha by providing
a much-needed history, horticulture and
environmental education center.
We urge our readers to contact the local
legislative delegation (Sen. Daniel Web-
ster, 850-487-5047, e-mail his assistant at
drawdy.ann.s09@flsenate.gov; Rep. Dean

importance of these grant programs.

Taylor Morrison unveils homes at
Covington Chase in Winter Garden


Taylor Morrison, which builds
townhomes 'and single-family
homes priced form the $100s in
16 Central Florida communities,
has unveiled 10 distinctive floor
plans priced from the $200s at
Covington Chase in Winter Gar-
den. The community is located
at 324 Silverdale Ave., one mile
east of Dillard Street.
Kyle Marik, marketing man-
ager at Taylor Morrison, said
three professionally decorated
model homes at Covington
Chase are open daily. New
three- and four-bedroom sin-
gle-family homes at Covington
Chase offer 65-, 70- and 80-foot
home sites.
Taylor Morrison, which re-
sulted from the merger of parent
companies Taylor Woodrow and
Morrison Homes, now ranks as
the world's third largest home-
builder, according to Marik.
As Morrison Homes, Taylor
Morrison reported it closed on
sales of 582 new homes in 13 lo-
cal communities in 2007, which
marked an 82 percent increase
over 2006 sales and a slight
increase over the company's
projections.
The average sale price of a
Morrison-built home in 2007
in the Orange County area
was $220,000, said Marik. The

BUYING A HOME
OUT-OF-STATE?
People who are moving to another
state are usually concerned about
how they will be able to monitor the
purchase or sale of a home across
state lines. Your local REALTOR
can help you buy or sell property
out-of-state.
The National Association of
REALTORS (NAR) is a nationwide
association and network of real
estate sales professionals, similar to
the local Association of REALTORS.
Most real estate agents are mem-
bers of their local association and
the national organization. REALTOR
is a registered term of NAR. This
professional affiliation among real
estate agents all across the country
works to your advantage when you
buy or sell out-of-state property.
Your agent can contact an agency in
the area where you want to buy or
sell. When this relationship is estab-
lished, the local agent can coordi-
nate arrangements by selecting
houses for your consideration and
help you to strike a deal when you
have made a selection. Having a
local sales professional to help you
work out any problems that may
arise is a real plus,
If you would like to talk further
about buying or selling real estate,

beginning in 2009.
"Last year, Taylor Morrison
increased sales traffic by 53 per-
cent, increased net sales by 82
percent and reduced its standing
inventory by more than 68 per-
cent," Marik noted. "As Taylor
Morrison, we are stronger fi-
nancially, and with last year's
record sales, we are in a better
position here than we have ever
been."

Winter Garden


Lakeview Middle raising money

through cell phone collection


Many families in America
have at least one or two old
cell phones lying around
their homes, doing nothing
but collecting dust. Citizens
might not be aware that these
cell phones can be put to use
by organizations for fund-
raising purposes.
Lakeview Middle School is
collecting used and unwanted
cell phones to help raise mon-
ey for its School Nurse Fund.
LMS is asking that the pub-


lic help. by dropping off the
phones at the school's main
office, guidance office and
media center at 1200 W. Bay
St., Winter Garden.
The fund-raiser is an ongo-
ing project.
The donated cell phones are
sent to Pace Butler Corpora-
tion of Edmond, Okla. Pace
Butler pays for each shipment
of cell phones that it receives
and ensures that each phone
is recycled in a responsible


manner and that no phone
ends up in a landfill.
Some phones are donated
to individuals in need of
emergency 911 service, in-
cluding senior citizens and
victims of domestic violence.
The money raised benefits a
worthy cause and spares the
environment of cell phone
toxins.
For more information, call
Jenny Holt at 407-877-5010,
Ext. 223.

Butterfly expert to sign books


Are you a butterfly fan?
Butterflies are part.of the
Central Florida environ-
ment. Today, butterfly gar-
dens are being included in
many home landscapes. But-
terfly enthusiasts arid those
curious about butterflies will
want to visit Spring Fever in
the Garden on April 12-13 in
downtown Winter Garden.
20 Years of Butterfly Rev-
elations will be available for
$7 at the 2008 Spring Fever
event. This book by native
Central Floridian Henry F.
Swanson is a follow-up to
his 1979 book Butterfly Rev-
elations, which described his
tested theory that generations
of certain migratory butter-
flies have been genetically
imprinted to return to the
exact spot on earth. Swanson
announced to the Bloom 'N'
Grow Garden Society that
proceeds from the book sales
will go to the club's scholar-
ship fund.
Swanson, a former Or-
ange County agricultural
extension .agent and nation-
ally recognized champion
of the environment, began
his study journey with the
Red Admiral butterfly in his
own backyard in April 1977.
Readers will learn of his ac-
cidental first encounter with
the Red Admiral and how it
all started and can find out
why they continue to return
each year to his yard in Win-
ter Park.
The author has been rec-
ognized as having one of the
most intensive and lengthy
records of continuous ob-
servation of a butterfly spe-
cies in the world. During his
20-year period of observa-
tion, he has recorded 4,406
daily visits of the Red Ad-
miral butterfly to the mating
site in his back yard. His re-
search, theories and records
provide an interesting story
of nature and survival.
He says, "God gave me
the one that no one knew
much about, the Red Admi-
ral. Most folks were study-
ing the Monarch, but the Red
Admiral is different. It' solo
migrates twice a year, and
they are several generations
removed from the previous


HENRY SWANSON


alpha migrants who made the
other migration! The flight is
over 2,000 miles unassisted
in eight to ten days from the
Northern to the Southern
Hemisphere (or vice versa)
to the mating site of relatives
from generations past."
He credits the Red Admi-
rals with having evolved the
best Global Positioning Sys-
tem (GPS) in the butterfly
family. Swanson is grateful
to Nobel Prize-winner and
botanist Dr. Barbara Mc-
Clintock for developing the
"jumping genes" research
that helps explain how the
short-lived (four- to five-
month lifespan) Red Admi-
rals can genetically transfer
their family mating site loca-
tion from generations to gen-
erations.
Some of the "revelations"
in the book explain how to
have daily encounters with
a friendly butterfly; the time
of day to look for perching
Red Admirals; when to ex-
pect this migratory butterfly;
how to find a Red Admiral
mating site; and how to see a
friendly, entertaining species
every day without planting
flowers or host plants to at-
tract them.
Last year, Swanson had
predicted that on Nov. 17 a
certain family of Red Ad-
miral butterflies would re-
turn to a 30-foot circle near
his home. About 100 of his
friends gathered for the
event. As predicted, the but-
terflies arrived.
Swanson will be available
for book signings at the festi-
val on Saturday and Sunday.

Parks


Central Park Complex at 560
Flewelling Drive. Located on
Lake Moxie, this park is a
sports mecca for Ocoee youth.
It includes the Bulldog Pop
Warner Football field, three
Little League fields, as well as a
basketball court, volleyball and
tennis courts, a playground and
a park area with a pavilion.
The park improvements, at a
cost of approximately $600,000,
are really noticeable in the
bright new playground equip-
ment and obvious upgrades at
the youth sports fields. All the
fencing has been replaced on
the baseball and football fields,
and new sidewalks were con-
structed throughout the com-
plex as drainage issues were
solved. New bleachers and new
bleacher pads are now in use at
the Little League fields, and the
football field is slated for new
bleachers as well.
"It turned out very nice," said
Ocoee Parks and Recreation
Director Jeff Hayes. "We've
had a lot of compliments from
the users up there who have
seen a big difference."
Gary Hood, an Ocoee city
commissioner and the president
of the Ocoee Little League,
told The West Orange Times
the complex looks great and
the baseball facilities are now
disabilities-compliant, as well
as cleaner since most, if not
all, of the dirt areas have been
removed.


"Overall, the league and
the kids are ecstatic over the
changes and are grateful to the
city for [them]," he said, and
he added: "With the Ocoee
Little League hosting district
tournaments in June and July,'
the surrounding towns can see
what improvements the city of
Ocoee has done to Central Park.
Central Park is now something
for all of us to be proud of."
Rec Director Hayes ex-
plained that plans are also in
the works for the installation of
a boardwalk at Lake Moxie to
give better access for fishing.
Walks will also be able to enjoy
the lakeside addition.
A local Girl Scout group is
collecting data on the plants
and wildlife of the park and
will soon present its findings
to the Parks and Recreation
Board and the Ocoee City
Commission. The Scouts hope
to prepare signage for the park
highlighting the flora and fauna
of Lake Moxie.
Where else can residents go
to play and relax?
Freedom Park, one of
Ocoee's newest parks, is next
to Thornebrooke Elementary
School at 351 Thornebrooke
Drive. The park includes a na-
ture trail, upscale playground
and soccer and baseball fields,
plus rest rooms, a picnic area
and a pavilion.

1st Baptist Windermere presents Easter musical
The children of 1st Baptist Church Windermere recently presented a colorful 30-minute
musical called 'It's Easter.' Directed by Patty Hood and Mary Ann Vermillion, the 1st-
through 5th-graders sang a variety of new songs along with classic hymns as they told
how the dogwood tree symbolizes the meaning of Easter. With Lake Down as the back-
drop for the musical, the choir's colorful props and decorations were a bright counterpoint
to the thousands of Easter eggs waiting for both the choir and the audience after the
production, which was part of a larger celebration that included crafts, a performance by
comic magician Tony Hollowell and 2 egg hunts. The children's choir rehearses Wednes-
days from 4-5:30 p.m. at the church (300 Main St. in Windermere), and the public is
invited to participate. For information, call Hood at 407-489-0459.

Central Florida Historic Society to honor
Dr. P. Phillips as history maker of the past


Rotary Club, DPHS Interact fund-raiser
The Dr. Phillips Rotary Club, in partnership with Dr. Phillips High Interact Club, operated
a concession stand March 10-16 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational Golf Tournament. The
Rotary Club donated all profits from the fund-raiser to community projects.


For the first time, in 2008, the
Historical Society of Central
Florida will present its highest
award, the John Young History
Maker Award, to three individ-
uals, representing the past, the
present and the future.
The award is named for as-
tronaut Capt. John Young and is
given each year to a Central Flo-
ridian whose lifetime of achieve-
ment has made a historic impact
on the community.
The fourth annual John Young
History Maker Celebration will
be held May 7 at the Orange
County Regional History Cen-
ter in Orlando.
Sara Van Arsdel, executive
director of the History Center,
said the Historical Society is
particularly excited about this
fourth celebration honoring
three history makers.
"Our mission is to honor the
past, explore the present, to shape
the future, so we feel expanding
the celebration to honor historic
individuals from the past, pres-
ent and future is so fitting and
will be meaningful to the com-
munity," said Van Arsdel.
The John Young History Mak-
er Past Award will recognize Dr.
Philip Phillips, a historic Central
Floridian whose achievements
are still felt in the community.
The History Maker Present
Award will honor attorney J.
Charles Gray of GrayRobinson
PA for his lifetime of achieve-
ment that has made a historic
impact on the community, its
citizens and the country.
The History Maker Future
Award gives greater recognition
to the winner of the $5,000 His-
tory Maker Scholarship, whose
contributions will impact the
community in years to come.
Dr. Philip Phillips began pur-
chasing land in Orlando in 1897
for citrus groves and develop-
ment. At one time, he was the


largest individual owner of citrus
real estate in the world.
Within the citrus industry,
Phillips was an innovator, re-
placing human labor with mech-
anization in his packing house
and revolutionizing the citrus
industry by canning orange juice
without loss of flavor or nutrition
during the 1927-28 season.
Dr. Phillips patented the pro-
cess and made it available to
the whole industry because he
believed the future of the Florida
citrus industry depended on it.
In the 1950s, recognizing
that proper health care for black
citizens of Central Florida was
almost non-existent, Dr. Phil-
lips himself was instrumental
in establishing the Dr. Phillips
Memorial Hospital and encour-
aging black doctors to relocate
to Orlando.
Thanks to his success in citrus
and development, Dr. Phillips
quietly gave generously to sup-
port charitable needs in Central
Florida until his death in 1959.
His philanthropy continues to-
day through the Dr. P. Phillips
Foundation.
J. Charles Gray, a native Cen-
tral Floridian, has been one of
the architects of the community's
success. Active in civic, govern-
mental and political affairs for
more than four decades, he cur-
rently serves as the chairman of
the board and founding director
of the law firm, GrayRobinson,
PA.
Throughout his law career,
he has played a key role in the
development of Central Florida,
serving as city solicitor for the
city of Orlando, chairman of the
Florida State Turnpike Author-
ity, chairman of the Economic
Development Commission of
Mid-Florida and chairman of
the University of Central Florida
Foundation.
As county attorney for Orange


County, he was involved in de-
veloping the county's Tourist
Development Plan, the Orange
County Civic Convention Center
and the Orange County Compre-
hensive Growth Plan.
The History Maker Future
Award scholarship will be given
to one outstanding Orange Coun-
ty public high school graduating
senior planning to attend a four-
year university and major in the
sciences. The winner is selected
based on criteria, including his
or her embodiment of the His-
torical Society's mission.
The gala award ceremony is
the Historical Society's larg-
est fund-raiser of the year and
is expected to draw more than
500 guests. This year's event
proceeds are expected to exceed
last year's revenue. Funds raised
at the event support nationally
important exhibitions and edu-
cational programs that served
more than 146,000 children and
adults in the community last year
alone.
Located in the restored 1927
Orange County Courthouse,
the Orange County Regional
History Center houses a variety
of dynamic changing and per-
manent exhibits. It is accredited
by the American Association
of Museums and is an affiliate
of the prestigious Smithsonian
Institution.
Individual tickets to the gala,
including the reception at 5 p.m.,
ceremony at 6 p.m. and dinner in
the museum at 7 p.m., are avail-
able to Historical Society Mem-
bers for a $175 contribution and
to non-members for a $225 do-
nation. Contributor Tables start
at $2,500. For more informa-
tion on the event and pricing,
call 407-836-8546. The His-
tory Center will be closed to the
public May 7 for the celebration.

The Bob Allen Family Foun-
dation will host its third annual
Great Wine Shootout on Sunday,
April 13, from 3-6 p.m. at the
home of Foundation President
Rollie Allen.
"We are so thrilled with the re-
sults of the annual wine shootout
the past two years," said Allen.
"Everyone who attends really
enjoys the unique theme, which
translates to great financial suc-
cess for the foundation and its
goals."
More than 200 guests are ex-
pected to attend the event, which
was conceived by Tim Varan,
owner of Tim's Wine Market
on North Orange Avenue in Or-
lando.
Varan is currently opening a
new wine shop location on Main
Street in Windermere.
"We have been looking to be in
Windermere for a long time," said
Varan. "The right opportunity just
came along and the folks there
have been incredibly welcoming
to us. We weren't even opening,
just unloading cases, and we had
26 walk-ins.
"When The Bob Allen Family
Foundation approached us about
a wine fundraiser two years ago, I
was interested because they do so
much good for groups of people
in need of help that don't get a lot
of attention."
Reluctant to produce a typical
wine-tasting event, Varan came
up with the shootout concept.
During the event, Varan runs a
competition for the "most unique
wine poured award."
The wines poured are chosen
from select purveyors, along with
Varan's personal, exclusive selec-
tion.
Guests taste wines in various
categories, including Anything
but Chardonnay, Serious Whites,
Bistro Reds, Big Dog Reds arid
Wildcards.
The wines are described in
detail by Varan and his staff and
paired with a selection of foods to
complement each varietal. Guests
taste and vote for their favorites
in each category, with winners an-
nounced at the end of the event.
Afterward, guests may pur-
chase or order any of the wines
at discounted prices and take
a chance to win an under-the-
counter 32-bottle wine cooler
stocked with wines from the
event, a catered four-course din-
ner for eight prepared at the win-
ner's home and served by Puff
'N' Stuff along with wines paired
with each course and a surfboard
from Ron Jon's Surf Shop.,
"We have a wide group of sup-
porters that have become part of
the foundation family," saidAllen.
"We love having everyone gather
for this event, and it's even more
special that it is at my home."
Valet parking is complimentary
via two lots in downtown Wind-
ermere with shuttle service to the

Picture yourself vacationing for a week at this home on North Captiva Island.
This getaway could be yours with the purchase of a raffle ticket from the Henry
Nehrling Society. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20 and can be purchased by calling
407-876-9992. Proceeds from the raffle will go to the Nehrling Gardens Acquisition
Fund.

Take a chance to win a Captiva Island vacation
to benefit Nehrling Gardens Acquisition Fund


The Henry Nehrling Society is selling
tickets for a chance to win a one-week
vacation on North Captiva Island.
Tickets are $5 each or four for $20, and
the drawing will be held May 9.
The winner will have the use of a four-
bedroom, three-bath home on North
Captiva Island that sleeps eight and offers
spectacular ocean views from a fourth-
level sundeck. Access to the island is by
boat, and the round-trip boat taxi fare and
marina parking are included. The value
of the prize is $2,400, and it must be used
during 2008.
North Captiva Island is off the Florida
mainland near Cape Coral and Fort
Myers. Its white shell roads are great for
jogging, bicycling and walking. There is
a nature preserve at the southern end of
the island.
Island activities include swimming,
beach combing, shelling, bird watching,
fishing and just plan relaxing. There are
three miles of white sand beaches, and
porpoises frolic and feed in both the bay
and the Gulf of Mexico. Boat rentals are
available for deep-sea fishing and island
adventures. The island has more than 100
species of birds and 600 active gopher
tortoise nests north of the preserve.
The house, called Captiva Castle, is
four stories. The first floor consists of
pilings and a storeroom, an outdoor
shower and fish-cleaning tank. The front
door is on the second level with foyer,
center hallway and three of the bedrooms.
The master bedroom has a king bed and
private bath. Another bedroom has a
queen bed and the third has twin beds and
a shared bath. Two of the bedrooms open
onto the back deck secluded among the
trees. There is also a laundry room on the
second floor. An oak staircase leads to
the third floor and the living and dining
great room. There is also a fully equipped


kitchen, second master bedroom with a
king bed and a small bath and a screened
tiled deck has patio furniture for dining
alfresco.
From the great room, there is a spiral
staircase to a fourth level sundeck with a
spectacular view of the bay, other barrier
islands and the mainland a great place
to view the sunrise and sunset.
The home has central air and heat,
television, VCR, satellite, phone,
stereo, paddle fans throughout and
is comfortably furnished. The extra-
large kitchen has a dishwasher, garbage
disposal, microwave, blender and coffee
maker. Amenities include adult bikes,
fishing poles, crab traps, beach blankets,
beach chairs, beach toys, barbecue grill
and a picnic table at ground level.
All proceeds from the raffle will go to
the Nehrling Gardens Acquisition Fund
to purchase the remaining six acres of
Dr. Henry Nehrling's historic home and
gardens in Gotha. The non-profit Nehrling
Society plans to use the property to create
a history, horticulture and environmental
education center.
The Nehrling house and property are
the last remnants of the site that Henry
Nehrling, a noted horticulturist, used
to test and propagate more than 3,000
new and rare plants, many of which are
common in the Florida landscape today.
It was the first experimental botanical
garden in the state. When Nehrling
settled in Gotha in 1884, his property was
40 acres in size, but now only six acres of
the original site remain intact.
The property is on the National Register
of Historic Places and on Florida's list of
Significant Properties.
For more information on the project
or to purchase raffle tickets, go

Lady Panthers roll to

I 6th straight shutout


DP's Lisa Vinson slashes through the Tallahassee Chiles defense en route to another victory for the Lady Panthers.


The Dr. Phillips High var-
sity girls flag football team
extended its record to 6-0
with last week's 14-0 victory
over Harmony. Through last
week, the Lady Panthers had
outscored their opponents
159-0.
Cassandra Maloney's
6-yard touchdown pass to
Megan Lamb on the opening
drive of the second half was
all DP needed to dispose of
visiting Harmony. The Lady
Panthers used a hurry-up
option attack to march 75
yards and cap the drive with
Lamb's TD catch on fourth
down. Sarah Almaguer
scored the extra point.
On DP's next possession,
Markia Mobley took a han-
doff, pulled up in the back-
field and passed to a wide
open Shannon Davis for a
38-yard touchdown. Chan-
tal McCrimon's extra-point
catch completed the scoring
to avenge two bitter defeats
at the hands of Harmony in
2007.


Tia Coker hauled in 4 re-
ceptions, and McCrimon fin-
ished with a pair of catches,
3 pulls and a critical inter-
ception.
The Lady Panthers faced
Tallahassee Chiles on March
21, and for the third straight
year, the two teams battled
down to the wire.
After three scoreless
quarters, Philicia Douglas
stepped in front of a pass
and returned the interception
to inside the Chiles 15-yard
line. On fourth and goal, Ma-
loney hit Coker in the back
of the end zone for the game-
winning TD pass. Almaguer
made the extra point to close
out the scoring at 7-0.
The DP junior varsity
flag football team saw its
undefeated record slip away
with last week's 12-0 loss
to Harmony. The J.V. Lady
Panthers dropped two poten-
-tial touchdown passes and
two would-be interceptions
that could have changed the
game's outcome.

to come. The Knights are;;n-


chored by sophomores Sherry

Small bites


By Mary Anne Swickerath

A Taste for Learning
to benefit Valencia
Valencia Community Col-
lege has set a goal of raising
$500,000 for scholarships on
Saturday, April 12, when 800
supporters and wine lovers will
sample top-of-the -line offerings
of local chefs and international
vintners.
VCC's third Taste for Learn-
ing will be held at Rosen Shingle


Creek, and the cost is $125 per
person or $200 per couple.
The event is entirely sup-
ported by in-kind donations, so
100 percent of the fund raised
go directly to scholarships for
students in financial need.
For more information, call
407-582-3150.

The bar at Bonefish Grill in Winter Garden has room for a crowd.

Bonefish Grill gets warm welcome in West Orange County


By Mary Anne Swickerath

The most upscale restaurant
at Winter Garden Village at
Fowler Groves drew more than
140 people at its pre-opening
benefit night March 22 for the
Boys and Girls Clubs of Cen-
tral Florida. It was a party at-
mosphere at the new Bonefish
Grill that night as guests had
the chance to sample Cajun
Chicken Egg Rolls, Bang Bang
Shrimp, Mahi Mahi Piccata,
Ahi Tuna with Warm Mango
Salsa and Pistachio Parmesan-
Crusted Rainbow Trout all
regular items on the restaurant's
menu. They also enjoyed spe-
cialty martinis and cocktails
and tastes of Bonefish's impres-
sive wine list.
The charity night not only
introduced locals to a fine new
restaurant, but also raised more
than $4,500 for the Boys and
Girls Clubs.
"Being part of the communi-
ty means much more to us than
just serving food," said John
McCarthy, managing partner of
Bonefish Grill Winter Garden
and a resident of Summerport.
"By Partnering with the Boys


and Girls Clubs of Central Flor-
ida, we've taken an important
step in fostering relationships,
building a foundation of good-
will and helping out those who
need assistance."
Gary Cain, president of the
Boys and Girls Clubs of Cen-
tral Florida, said he was pleased
his organization was chosen as
the beneficiary of the charity
night: "Everyone in attendance
seemed to have a great time.
The food was wonderful, the
atmosphere was relaxing, and
the service was fantastic."
In addition, he said, the mon-
ey raised will support the club
in Winter Garden, "which pro-
vides hope and opportunity to
children who most need it."
The 5,400-square-foot res-
taurant opened for business
on Monday of last week and
is finding an enthusiastic wel-
come from West Orange Coun-
tians. The sleek (and large) bar
area has been drawing locals for
after-work fun, and the dining
room, which can accommodate
206 guests, is hopping.
The atmosphere is upscale,
yet friendly and casual. The
light hardwoods and the hand-


Bang Bang Shrimp is one of the most popular appetizers
on the Bonefish Grill menu.


blown amber lamps provide a
warm glow.
But it's the food and service
that will be bringing custom-
ers back, especially those who
crave really fresh seafood
cooked over a wood-fired grill.
McCarthy explained the fish
and shellfish on the menu are
delivered to the kitchen five or
six days a week.
"Bonefish has a real solid
commitment to quality, and that
is what attracted me to this busi-
ness," he said. "Everything has
to be excellent, not just good.
We want to do what we do re-
ally well."
And it shows.
Friends and I were impressed
with our choices of Ahi Tuna
Sesame (seared with black and
white sesame seeds and wasabi
and pickled ginger), Chilean
Sea Bass (especially with the
lemon-butter sauce or the pan-
Asian sauce), the Wolf Fish
with Shrimp and Scallops and
the Bang Bang Shrimp (wild
gulf shrimp tossed in a spicy
mayo-based sauce).
We didn't have a chance to
try such specialties as the Ten-
derloin Portabella Piccata, or
the steak, chicken and pasta of-
ferings since we were seriously
enticed by the fresh seafood.
And don't miss the Key Lime
Pie, made in-house as are all
the desserts. (Right now a righ-
teous strawberry shortcake is
being featured.)
Also impressive to me was
the 50-60 carefully chosen wine
choices and the 30 wines by the
glass available.
You can come here and have
a glass of wine and a salad and
soup or the appetizer-to-dessert
gamut and there will soon be
outside tables installed for the
lovely spring weather.
The Winter Garden Bonefish
Grill is only the third one in the
Central Florida market. The
first is on Sand Lake Road in
the Dr. Phillips area, and the
second opened in Longwood.
Bonefish Grill is located at
3279 Daniels Road and serves
dinner seven nights a week,
from 4-10:30. Monday through
Thursday, from 4-11:30 Friday
and Saturday and 4-10 Sun-
day.
All I have to say is "Welcome
to the neighborhood."

All-State Chorus
Bridgewater Middle and its

had students chosen for All-
State Chorus. The honored
students were Sara Bond, Jaci
Johnson, Abigail Hill and Jacob
Waldron.
To be selected, students
must go through two challeng-


ing auditions and be ranked
one of Florida's top singers to
earn a spot in either the Treble
or Mixed Honor Chorus. They
are tested on their musical
knowledge, ear training, sing-
ing tone and preparation on dif-
ficult repertoire.
The All-State singers recently
joined with other selected stu-


dents in Tampa for a week of
rehearsals, concerts and work-
shops. They enjoyed working
with guest conductors from all
over the country, hearing other
world-class performers and
making music with students
from all parts of Florida..
The outstanding concerts
were worth all the hard work.

Lake Whitney Elementary appreciates all that its crossing guards do each and every day
to get children to and from school safely. Helping students daily at LWES are, I-r, Rufus,
Dwayne, Gigi and Ginger.


Frangus Elementary's Jump-Rope Team performed many amazing routines at the Am-

they were able to meet some of the players before the game started. They are looking
forward to visiting and performing for other schools before the end of the school year.


Montverde Academy


Montverde Academy's Lower School students in grades 2-5 participated in Project Li-

Windermere
. . . .


Students in Mrs. Morris' 1st-grade class at Spring Lake Elementary spent St. Patrick's
Day learning about the country of Ireland. The children learned both facts and folklore.
They also enjoyed listening to authentic Irish music. Mrs. Morris' parents immigrated to
the Ocoee, area from Ireland in 1957.


Tildenville


Windermere Elementary's music teacher, Ninabeth Frank, was caught recently
incorporating important reading strategies into her weekly music lesson. The students
thoroughly enjoyed listening to the repetitive story line of the main character walking up
and down the stairs in the book 'Mortimer' by Robert Munsch. Afterward, Frank reread
the story but now instructed students to use their mallets to play the keys low to high
when the main character walked up the stairs and to play the keys high to low when the
character walked back down the stairs. The students really enjoyed the lesson. Pictured
is Frank with students from Stacey Beavin's 1st grade (1-r): (front row) Brett Good, Tristen
Smith, Easton Ricks and Ashley Chase; and (back row) Nathan Spear, Mariah Alamdar,
Carson Crossley, Cassidy Steiner and Brenna Wise.

Windermere Prep


Every student and staff member of Tildenville Elementary participated in Tildenville's
FCAT Parade. The parade was given to encourage students to do their best on the test.
Amidst chants of 'I can, I will' sounded noise makers, sirens and laughter. Classes made
banners, T-shirts and other items to support students taking the test. The lower grades
adopted the intermediate classrooms to show their support. Pictured are some of the
students and teachers enjoying the parade with Assistant Principal Mia Montgomery (far
left).


Family Christian


Windermere Prep kindergartners recently took a field trip to Oak Haven Farms to pick
strawberries. The trip coincided with their class studies on seeds and plants' growth
cycles. At theh farm, students learned how strawberries grow and mature and how
to tell when they are ready to be picked. Showing off the berries they picked are, I-r,
Megan Hauck, Isabella Patel, Bella Rossi and Emily Allred from Sharon Leach's class.
The students also got to take a hayride and have a picnic lunch that included the fruits
of their labor: strawberry shortcake.

At the annual Weekend to Roar celebration at Foundation
Academy, 1 of the silent auction items was a 'Principal
for a Day' package. Emily Lowery, a 3rd-grader in Mrs.
Romoser's class, was the highest bidder. Emily spent the
day with the elementary principal, Angel Whitehead, in
meetings, visiting classrooms and doing other 'principal'
duties.' Pictured is Emily with Mrs. Whitehead visiting a

The breakfast chronicles 7:04 am...
"Paul, what would you like for breakfast?" said
the morn.
"An egg sandwich-can I help?" said an eager
little face.
"Sure, put one piece of bread in the toaster..."
"One piece! But I wanted a SANDWICI I! I low
can you have a sandwich with one piece?", he said
as he put the piece in the toaster.
"One piece," she patiently repeated as she cracked
two eggs in the pan and added some milk. The smell
of bacon wafted from the microwave.
"You can't make a sandwich with one piece of
bread. I want a full size sandwich!" Paul demand-
ed.
"Are you cooking or helping? You'll have your
sandwich, my love." she replied gently.
He wailed (flopping on the floor like a fish), "I'll
never get my sandwich. I really wanted a sandwich!"
"Paul, go get a slice of cheese from the fridge,"

said mom, ignoring the fit.
As he begrudgingly complied, she arranged two
pieces of bread on the plate and began spooning the
scrambled eggs on the two sices (one half-full).
Paul watched as she crumbled the bacon on the
eggs.
"Paul, put that cheese on the full slice."
He snitTed as he obeyed. The two slices of bread
and eggs went into the toaster oven, and Paul began
"Oh, I see..."
As the toaster popped, lie was ready with the first
slice of toast to go on the full sandwich. Mom
pulled them both out and folded her half-full slice
in half.
"Thanks mom, I really do like the cheese melted
like that." Paul said gratefully.
As they sat down to eat their breakthst and watch
the sun rise, Mom said the blessing:
"Thank you, God, that you take care of us, even
when we don't understand how you work."
