Cancer survivors have special

reasons for 'relaying'


By Mary Anne Swickerath

On a beautiful spring day at
Newton Park on the shores of
Lake Apopka, five members
of the West Orange Chamber
posed for a photo together.
But it wasn't just Chamber
membership they had in com-
mon each is a cancer survi-
vor, each with a different story
to tell. All are involved in the
upcoming American Cancer
Society Relays for Life in
West Orange County.
The five survivors are Cara
Hennen of Windermere, Di-
anne Southwell and Pat Glea-
son of Ocoee, Scott Boyd of
Winter Garden and Jaclyn
Whiddon of Oakland.
Hennen will be part of the
West Orange Junior Service
League team at the Relay for
Life of Southwest Orlando at
Dr. Phillips High School this
Friday, April 18. Southwell,
Gleason, Boyd and Whiddon
will be walking in the Re-
lay for Life of West Orange
at Ocoee High School April
25-26.

Cara Hennen's story
"Yes, your life can change


in a minute, a second, a mo-
ment," said Hennen, who is
a professional volunteer. "I
was 20 years old, living in the
county hub of St. Louis, had a
good job at a mortgage com-
pany, living in a four-family
flat with my sister. For me...
life was perfect."
But lying in bed one night
reading, she found a lump on
her breast, and the next day
the family doctor confirmed it
was cancer.
Her original diagnosis in a
local hospital indicated bone
cancer also, but tests at the
better-equipped St. John's
Medical Center with an up-
to-date radiology department
proved she had no cancer in
her bones.
She was chosen for the then-
new lumpectomy procedure,
, and her ovaries were removed
to reduce hormone production
in her body.
"At this poitit, the doctors
told my parents that I had
six months to live," she said.
"They didn't tell me."
She underwent six weeks
of five-days-a-week radiation
before beginning chemothera-
py that left her so ill she had to


camp in the bathroom for the
next three days.
"I had to stay on chemo for
three years as my blood count
never stayed stable," she said.
Being 20 and just starting in
life, this was a hard hit. I had
two doctors tell me the reason
I lived was my sense of hu-
mor. So for those of you who
know me, you now know what
my secret is."
As a cancer survivor of ap-
proximately three decades, she
has learned the importance of
giving back, whether to your
community, church or school.
"Each of us has been af-
fected by cancer either by a
family member or a friend,"
she added. "It's something
you don't have to physically
have to cause change in your
life. I just think that if one of
us gave back to the Relay for
Life, even if it's just walking a
lap together we will find
a cure."

Dianne Southwell's story
"It was last year at the Relay
for Life event at Ocoee High
School when I cried," said

Winter Garden

appoints board


to adjust district


boundaries


The city must
approve its new
voting districts by
Dec. 9.

By Michael Laval

Residents will have a say in
redrawing Winter Garden's four
voting districts.
Each City Commissioner
appointed a citizen to the new
Districting Commission at last
Thursday's meeting. A selection
by Commissioner Colin
Sharman, who was absent, is
still pending.
The Districting Commission
will be charged with studying
possible changes to the city
districts and proposing new
boundaries to the elected
officials within 120 days from
last Thursday. The board must
submit a report containing a
recommended plan for adjusting
commission boundaries along
with a map and description of
the proposed districts.
Each City Commissioner
offered up a nomination to be
voted on. Mayor John Rees
selected Derek Blakeslee,
Commissioner Gerald
Jowers picked Kent Horsley,
Commissioner Bob Buchanan
chose Fred Crabtree, and
Commissioner Harold Bouler
nominated Patricia Angry.
Blakeslee, Cra6tree and
Angry were approved by
unanimous, 4-0 votes, while
Horsley's nomination passed
3-1 with Buchanan casting the
dissenting vote.
Winter Garden's new City


Charter mandates the formation
of a Districting Commission
whenever the population of
any district becomes 50 percent
greater than the smallest
district. When adjusting the
boundaries, the Districting
Commission must satisfy the
City Charter requirement that
district populations are within
five percent of each other.
With Winter Garden's total
population of approximately
31,000, each newly adjusted
district will consist of roughly
7,500 to 8,000 residents.
While the exact number of
current residents per district
is not known since the 2000
census, City Manager Michael
Bollhoefer will produce an
estimate by next year using
a formula that combines the
census figures with city building
permits issued.
The city's number of
registered voters offers a view
of Winter Garden's lopsided
districts. District 4 is home
to 6,619 registered voters,
compared to only 1,718 for
District 3. Districts 1 and 2
have 2,944 and 2,146 registered
voters, respectively.
The City Commission must
pass an ordinance approving its
new district boundaries within
90 days of the next municipal
election, which sets a deadline
of Dec. 9.
In other business, the elected
officials approved the site plan
for additions to the Church of
Christ of West Orange, located
at 1450 Daniels Road. Rees also
read a proclamation declaring
May 4-10 as Municipal Clerks
Week in Winter Garden.

School Board wins Wekiva High improvements

rezoning lawsuit vs. Ocoee families coua be ready for
*all


By Mary Anne Swickerath

Last Friday, State Admin-
istrative Law Judge William
E Quattlebaum ruled in favor
of the Orange County School
Board in the year-old law-
suit filed by a group of Ocoee
families who did not want their
children rezoned from Ocoee
High School to Wekiva High.
Quattlebaum ruled that Orange
County Public Schools did
nothing illegal in its rezoning
process in moving the Ocoee


students.
"The issue in the case was
whether the adoption of a rule or
rezoning by the Orange County
School Board creating and re-
vising high school attendance
zones was an invalid exercise
of delegated legislative author-
ity," said schools spokesperson
Katherine Marsh.
"During the time the judge
was deciding this case, students
had the option of remaining at
Ocoee High School or attend-
ing Wekiva High School. That


option exists until the end of
the 2007-08 school year. Begin-
ning the 2008-09 school year
all students rezoned to Wekiva
High School from Ocoee High
School must attend Wekiva
High School."
Attorney Jim Gustino, who
represented the Ocoee fami-
lies in this lawsuit, told The
West Orange Times, "We are
extremely disappointed with
the administrative law judge's

Windeimere is working vig-
orously to have a roundabout
installed at the intersection of
Maguire Road and Park Ave-
nue prior to the start of school
in August. The traffic circle is
being designed to improve.the
flow of traffic through town,
especially during school open-
ing and closing times.
Tom Kelley of Professional
Engineering Consultants told


the Town Council last week
that the Florida Department
of Transportation has given
preliminary approval for the
intersection improvements.
But Windermere still needs
to obtain an easement from the
Orlando Utilities Commission,
Orange County Public Schools
and the owner of the old rail-
road right-of-way to complete
the project.
The OUC easement is an
integral component in the
traffic circle plan, and, if a
right-of-way agreement can
be approved in the next few
weeks, the work could be-
gin in the summer. If obtain-
ing this easement is delayed,
the work would have to be

Oakland residents are feeling
financial sting of watering rules


By Amy Quesinberry

Water violators, beware.
The town of Oakland, is seri-
ous about its irrigation rules
and is handing out warnings
and citations to anyone caught
watering their lawns at any
time other than their designat-
ed zone times.
One resident learned that if
his sprinklers are still running
just after midnight Thursday
- even if he started the cycle
during his designated time
Wednesday he is likely to
get fined. Another discovered
that he is responsible for noti-
fying his lawn-care company
of the specific watering times
and making sure the company
follows those rules. This was
the second violation for both,


and this time, the notice in-
cluded a $50 fine.
These two violators ap-
peared at the Oakland Town
Commission meeting last
Tuesday in hopes of having
their fines waived, but the
elected officials discussed the
matter andJ decided that the
rules were, put in place for a
reason and residents have had
ample time to get accustomed
to the town's current watering
schedule, which was estab-
lished in November.
Town Planner Roland Mag-
yar reiterated that the water
days should have "no spill-
over" into the next day -
even if it is the wee hours of
the morning. According to the

WOHS PTSA to host
Teen Safe Driving, Car
Care programs in April
West Orange High PTSA
will host two special programs
this month for teens and adults
at the Ninth-Grade Center on
Warrior Road. Both are free
and open to the community.
Car crashes are the No. 1
killer of teens in the USA. This
statistic is not related to drugs
but is about inexperienced and
distracted teens behind the
wheel.
The PTSA is hosting its
third, annual award-winning
Teen Safe Driving Seminar
on Thursday, April 24, at 6:30
p.m. The seminar will suggest
basic steps that can be taken to
alter the fatality rate and will
feature guest speakers, parent
testimonials and information
on keeping yourself and others
safe behind the wheel.
One attendee will win a
chance to participate in the
Richard Petty Safe Driving
Experience, and the PTSA
will also unveil the details re-
garding a $20,000 grant it was
awarded for a teen safe-driving
initiative.
On Saturday, April 26, a Car
Care Clinic will be held at 1
p.m. at the Ninth-Grade Center.
This will teach teens about the
basic maintenance of the car
and some minor troubleshoot-
ing. The clinic ends with a tire-
changing challenge. Both teens
and adults are invited.

Survivors


Southwell. "A young, dear
friend of mine insisted that
I walk the Survivor Lap. I
pulled away like a small child
and insisted vehemently that
the type of cancer I had was
not real cancer. 1 have mela-
noma. Melanoma is the most
deadly of skin cancers, and
the truth is, it is very, very
real."
She found this realiza-
tion frightening: "I couldn't
wait to get off the football
field that day. As soon as I
got home, I threw away my
purple [survivor] Relay for
Life T-shirt."
Southwell, who is the
owner of Plaudits!, a corpo-
rate gift company, explained
that of the three types of skin
cancer, basal, squamous and
melanoma, she had the first
two for years and never
thought much about it. But
one and one-half years ago,
she was diagnosed with the
third type.
"The nurse very calmly
and succinctly said the word
'm-e-l-a-n-o-m-a.' I stopped
breathing literally."
But the good news was the
cancer had not spread to her
bloodstream, lymph nodes
or other distant organs. She
underwent surgery a week
later, and, after having 10
centimeters cut from the side
of both of her arms, learned
that "they got it all."
Her melonoma began as a
tiny spot of her left forearm
"no bigger than the top of a
Bic Clic," she said. "It had
been red for a while, and
then it went away flak-
ing and then it went away
again. When it came back
once more, it was with a ven-
geance, changing colors and
bleeding."
As a child, she said, she
got blistering sunburns and
later was a regular at tanning
salons.
"If you 'live in Florida, your
chances increase for melano-
ma from 1 in 77 to 1 in 45,"
she explained.
She has a checkup every
90 days with her doctor and
advises everyone to be very-
careful, to stay out of the sun
from 11-4, to apply sunscreen
repeatedly when outside and
make an appointment with a
dermatologist.
"The Relay for Life Survi-
vor Lap is important, mental-
ly and emotionally," she said.
"If I can help raise awareness
with just one teenager who
takes to heart what I have to
say and who no longer looks
at me with that 'yeah, right,
I'm young, it won't happen to
me' look, I'll be happy. P.S.
I'm not throwing away my T-
shirt this year."

Pat Gleason's story
One year ago, following
her annual mammogram,
Gleason, who is a retired
nurse and senior advocate,
was diagnosed with breast
cancer.
"The emotional turmoil
and fear I experienced from
these findings is indescrib-
able," she said. "I have al-
ways eaten right, exercised
and, as a registered nurse,
practiced preventative medi-
cine and, as a result, enjoyed
excellent health."
She shared her news with
her family and her West Or-
ange Chamber Ambassador
friends and Jaclyn Whiddon,
herself a cancer survivor,
who informed Gleason of
the services ,and educational
materials available from the
American Cancer Society.
"I started reading and learn-
ing about breast cancer, my
options and choices involved
in fighting this disease," she
said. "Another cancer survi-
vor, Aridy Davis, gave me a
book called Dr. Susan Love's
Breast Book. Armed with all
this great information and
with discussions with my
doctors, I made the very per-
sonal decisions regarding my
treatment and recovery from
breast cancer."
She underwent bilateral
mastectomies last June and
began reconstructive plastic
surgery in November. The
final surgeries will be com-
pleted within the next couple
of months.
"Because of early detec-
tion and no cancer cells de-


tected in my lymph nodes, I
did not have radiation," she
explained. "My oncologist
placed me on oral chemo-
therapy for 10 years."
She has spent the past year
on self-survival and plans to
remain vigilant in detecting
and deterring a recurrence
of cancer anywhere in her
body.
"I feel very confident and


(Continued from lA) Windermere


positive with all aspects of
my recovery and the outlook
for a very healthy future,"
she said.
She will bring her grateful-
ness for all of the love and
support she has received to
the Relay for Life of West
Orange later this month.

Scott Boyd's story
"In the summer of 1987
when I was 16, my first ex-
perience with dealing with
cancer was through my grand-
mother," said Boyd, who is
vice president of McKinnon
Groves. "She had been diag-
nosed with breast cancer for
well over 20 years and my
whole life I had no idea. If
I had known, I don't believe
I would have understood the
severity of it until I witnessed
how fast my family lost her
that summer. I lost an impor-
tant part of my life that year
but never really knew how
cancer would impact me until
a few years later."
As a 19-year-old college
student, Boyd had his whole
world ahead of him.
"Moving fast with friends
and blinders on, I was liv-
ing life as teenagers do," he
said. "That was until I found
a bump that formed overnight
and would change my life
forever."
He can still remember sit-
ting in the doctor's office
waiting for the doctor to re-
turn from his examination
and asking him what the di-
agnosis was.
"You have cancer, and we
need to get you scheduled for
surgery in the morning," the
doctor told Boyd.
"My first thought was of
my grandmother and what
I watched her go through,",
he said. "I didn't feel sick or
even have discomfort, how
could this be happening to
me? I felt alone, scared and
mad at the world. I couldn't
understand what I did to de-
serve this."
He said the time between
surgeries, biopsies and decid-
ing.what options to take fu-
eled many of his thoughts.
"It was not until I was be-
ing prepped for my lymph
node dissection surgery that
I finally came to peace with
what was happening," he
said. "I had learned through
my nurse that there was a
9-year-old girl next door
with a brain tumor who was
preparing to go through sur-
gery and her prognosis was
not good. I thought to myself,
'She hasn't even had the op-
portunity to experience what
life has to offer, and I am sit-
ting here fuming over why I
have to deal with this.' It was
this day that propelled me to
make the most of my life as
long as I was able to. I have
been blessed to have the op-
portunity to see the world in
a whole new light."
As he looks back at his life
as a cancer survivor for nearly
20 years, he said he continues
to strive to make the most of
every day and work hard to
help others who are in need.
"In a flash, any of us can
fall victim to this disease that
has no boundaries and can
take a loved one way from us
forever," he said. "I am relay-
ing this year in honor and in
memory of my grandparents,
Dan and Anne McKinnon,
and Tisha Rayburn, along
with friends and families
who are battling this disease
in hopes of bringing aware-
ness to others in need."

Jaclyn Whiddon's story
As a young girl nearly
20 years ago, Whiddon's
mother took her to the fam-
ily pediatrician after she had
complained how badly her
stomach hurt.
"I remember clearly the
doctor pressing on my abdo-
men and turning to my mom
telling her that we needed to
go next door to ORMC," she
said. "I remember how upset
my older sister was, and I'm
glad that I was too young
and naive to be scared."
She was admitted to the hos-
pital that day, "and suddenly
everything was different."
She had Wilms Tumor, a
cancerous tumor that attaches
itself to your kidney.
"The tumor started on my
left kidney and was rapidly


growing across my abdo-
men," she said.
After surgery to remove
the tumor and her kidney,
she endured months of chemo
and the awful sickness that
came with it. She lost all her
hair and remembers waking
up each morning to see how
much had fallen out during
the night.


"I was in second grade; and
without the help of a won-
derful teacher, my family
and friends, I wouldn't have
passed school that school
year," she said. "I was dif-
ferent than my friends, and
at that age my classmates did
not know what to think....1I
wore an awful wig for a while.
At that time they didn't make
wigs especially for kids. For-
tunately, now there are orga-
nizations that make wigs es-
pecially for kids. I remember
when I finally got the courage
to leave the house without my
wig on once my hair started
to grow back."
Whiddon, who is a mar-
keting and public relations
consultant with the Whid-
don Group, is a member of
the executive committee for
the Relay for Life of West Or-
ange at Ocoee High School
and a member of the Progress
Energy Relay Team.
She has awful memories
of her battle with cancer but
says there are so many things
that she has to.be grateful for
because of that experience,
including a greater apprecia-
tion for life.
"It has been over 20 years
ago since I was diagnosed,
and now as an adult and as
a mother I cannot imagine
being faced with this disease
today," she said.
She watched her grand-
mother and her dear friend
Jennifer Barker Caraway lose
their struggles with cancer.
, "I have seen so much suf-
fering and heard too many
stories about cancer and the
beautiful lives that it ended
all too soon," she said. "How-
ever, I have also seen hope!
Hope in finding a cure!"
The American Cancer So-
ciety did so much for her,
she feels it is her turn to give
back.
"Relay for Life raises mon-
ey in our community to fund
research, education and the
countless programs that they
offer, programs that truly
make a difference to someone
who has been diagnosed with
this disease," she explained.
That is why she works for
Relay for Life and why she
invites everyone to become a
part of the Southwest Relay

lay for Life of West Orange

26 and the Relay for Life of

GET OUT OF
THE RENT TRAP

Are you still writing those checks
every month to keep a roof over your
head, without the benefit of building
up any equity? If you are still renting
because you think you still need a
fortune to get into your own home,
you should investigate today's real
estate market.
Interest rates are still low, which
means monthly payments are very
affordable, perhaps in the range of
your current monthly rent. Qualifying
for a loan, was never easier, espe-
cially since lenders have increased in
large numbers and are competing for
your business. Even if you couldn't
qualify to buy a home just a few
years ago, you may be able to qualify
today. Home prices today are rela-
tively stable, so you might be sur-
prised at the number of homes avail-
able in your price range. There are a
number of government programs
and mortgage packages that require
small down payments, in the three to
five percent range--and we haven't
even started talking about the tax
advantages! Think about it the next
time you write.a rent check.

The council unanimously ap-
proved the process for obtaining
the easement and authorized the
town manager, with the help of
the town attorney and town en-
gineer, to execute the necessary
documents.
Kelley said he is also address-
ing the potential need for a tem-
porary construction easement
from OUC to reroute traffic dur-
ing the construction period.
In exchange for the easement,
the town is offering OUC a
60-foot stub-out from the traf-
fic circle for future access to the
OUC property.
The town manager is also con-
tacting Jerry Kennedy, the owner
of the railroad right-of-way on
the southwest corner of the in-
tersection, to discuss an easement
for a small corner clip.
Similar cooperation is required
from OCPS. Town Manager
Cecilia Bernier said Monday
she discussed the subject with

about two years ago and staff said

of the property it would sign off
on the plan.

Gustino outlined several
reasons he disagrees with the

School Board did not follow its
own 13-step rezoning policy
that calls for multiple commu-

that would otherwise be in the
center of the roundabout.
The town will also ask Prog-
ress Energy to redesign the elec-
trical grid for the overhead wires
on the pole and relocate them to
a new pole. Kelley estimated the
Progress Energy work would
cost between $20,000 to $40,000.
Other utilities on the pole, such
as gas, would also be relocated.
After the easements are ob-
tained, the town must advertise
and accept bids and choose a
contractor before the work can
commence.
On another matter, the town
council had to postpone a second
reading, public hearing and final
vote on an ordinance to repeal
its annexation of Isleworth. Due
to a clerical error, the public had
received too short a notice of the
meeting.
A municipality must give five
days notice when it holds a pub-
lic hearing and vote for an an-
nexation, but a 10-day notice is
required when an annexation is
repealed.
With the advice of Town At-
torney Tom Wilkes, the Town
Council voted unanimously to
reschedule the second reading
and public hearing on the ordi-
nance repealing the annexation

Tuesday, April 29, at 7 p.m.
The county staff told the town
manager it would withdraw its
challenge to the annexation of
Butler Bay, Unit 1, if the town
does not move ahead with an-
nexating Isleworth.
The town and Orange County
are in the middle of a conflict
resolution process over this an-
nexation, and the next step in the
process requires a meeting of the
boards of both entities.
The deadline to hold that meet-
ing was set for May 1. Since the
town was unable to vote on the
repeal of the annexation ordi-
nance, it also had to pass a reso-
lution last week extending the
deadline for the next meeting
in the conflict resolution until
May 15.
The residents of Butler Bay,
Unit 1, voted for annexation
March 11, and the town has wel-

dents. The annexation process
will be complete once the county

Finding comfort in a close community


By Amy Quesinberry

When I was in high school, I couldn't wait
to "get away" from Winter Garden. I thought
I was on my way to being much more worldly
than the opportunities my hometown could
probably offer me.
But life rarely turns out the way the high
school version of you expects it to, and I found
myself back dn familiar ground after going out
of state for my bachelor's degree.
To tell you the truth, I wouldn't have it any
other way. I don't see myself moving away
from Winter Garden or at least West Or-
ange County, and last weekend was a prime
example of why I have such devotion to my
hometown.
It was a weekend of ups and downs.
Saturday brought the Bloom 'N' Grow
Garden Society's annual Spring Fever in the
Garden event along Plant Street. My kids and
I went downtown to eat, take photos and so-
cialize. I saw a friend from high school whom I
hadn't seen in years. I ran into a former neigh-
bor whose children I babysat 25 years ago. I
saw a friend from my son's preschool days.
There were work associates, church friends,
so many people from all phases of my adult
life.
I'm comforted by the sense of connectivity
I feel when I'm at events such as this.
Then, on Sunday, my community once again
put its comforting arm around me.
My son had a medical emergency during
the morning church service, and it was. a scary
ordeal. Immediately, people in the congrega-
tion some I've known since I was a child
- jumped to help. Someone ran for ice, one


stayed by my side to offer assistance, still an-
other rushed to call 911.
The emergency workers were there in an
instant because they were giving tours of a fire
truck a block away at the spring festival.
When the men came in, I recognized nearly
every face. There was Brandon, who grew up
in the church; Brian, whose family I wrote a
story about following the birth of his triplets;
Tom, who lives across the street; and Ken, a
firefighter who spent time in Iraq and who was
featured in this newspaper.
As my son was stabilized and taken to a
stretcher waiting in the vestibule, my primary
care doctor, John Cappleman, walked up. He
is a member of the church but wasn't at the
morning service because he was barbecuing
at the Spring Fever festival. The morning was
crisp, so Cappleman was walking home a few
blocks to the north to grab a jacket. He noticed
emergency vehicles at his church, my church
, and ran up to investigate.:
After we arrived at the emergency room,
my cell phone started buzzing. One of my
best friends (going all the way back to third
grade) called to find out how my son was do-
ing. How did she find out so fast? Her husband
was cooking with Dr. Cappleman. Then my
boss sent me a text. How did he know? His
ex-father-in-law attends my church.
I couldn't find that kind of familiaritX in just
any USA town.
I'm a native of Winter Garden. And it's a
club membership I'm quite proud of.
Some might say all this is too close for com-
fort. But I find comfort in the closeness of
this community and don't wonder at all what
I would find anywhere else.


Editor:

Florida is facing a water crisis in the next
few years as growth continues to increase at
the same time water supplies are decreasing.
More than 95 percent of water supplies have
come from the underground Floridian Aqui-
fer, which now shows decreased capacity,
with estimates of severe shortage by 2013.
The water management districts in the state
are charged with oversight of this problem,
with the St. Johns River Water Management
District (SJRWMD) responsible for most of
east central Florida. It would seem logical
that the first step should be development
of water conservation measures that would
significantly decrease our water use. While
some efforts have been made, most are vol-
untary and have not been significantly suc-
cessful. More than 50 percent of our water
use in Florida is for irrigating landscapes, so
this is the most logical
place to start. Success
has been limited, with
many homeowners
choosing and many
homeowner associa-
tions requiring turf
grasses that need
frequent watering as
well as extensive pes-
ticide use. The use of
reclaimed water by
many municipalities
has helped, but this
can cause groundwa-
ter and surface water
problems.
One outrageous
attempt to solve the
problem has been a requirement for every
local government to specify an alternative
source of water for their needs. The simplest
solution of most is to identify a surface wa-
ter body and propose withdrawal for future
use. This has resulted in numerous proposals
and plans to withdraw millions of gallons
per day from local lakes and rivers. This has
the potential for massive damage to aquatic
ecosystems throughout the state. As wetlands
dependent on lakes or rivers dry up and as
decreased river flow allows more salinity in-
trusion from the estuary at the mouth of the
river, many damaging results are evident.
The estuary ecosystem is one of the most
productive systems and is critical to many
species, including our main food fish, mol-
lusks and crustaceans, and the salinity bal-
ance here is very important.
One proposal to prevent damage has been
the determination of Minimum Flows and
Levels (MFL), a scientific evaluation that
should indicate exactly how much water
can be removed without causing damage.
Problems arise when we let demand drive
the science and when the results are open
for interpretation by the agency under great
pressure to manage the water supply to meet
increasing demands by larger and larger
populations.
The point at which "significant harm" will
occur should not be loosely interpreted but
based entirely on scientific data. The SJR-
WMD has excellent scientists on staff, but
their work should be subject to peer review
before decisions are made that determine
withdrawal limits. In some cases, such as
Lake Apopka, decisions governing with-
drawal were proposed without even doing
P, current MFL study!


The most serious consequences of the
surface water withdrawals include the fact
that no one really knows the real effects of
long-term use and no one has confidence that,
once permitted and functional, it will be pos-
sible to enforce and control withdrawals. It
is also difficult to determine just how long a
resource will sustain massive withdrawals,
so we may see a very expensive project do
permanent damage to ecosystems and still
not last very long.
Another proposal being considered as the
best long-term solution is the development of
desalination systems that would use seawater
as a source. While this idea has the advan-
tage of utilizing an unlimited supply of water
with no seasonal constraints (as might be the
case with surface water use) it also presents
many problems. The process is very energy
intensive and therefore expensive. The by-
product is a very saline brine with high tox-
icity and disposal
is a problem if it
is discharged any-
where adjacent to
natural reefs or ar-
eas of any biologi-
cal production.
It becomes in-
creasingly obvious
that conservation
is the first and best
approach to solv-
ing the problem.
The water man-
agement districts
should not issue
permits to any lo-
cal governments
until they have
demonstrated that every effort has been made
to impose and enforce such efforts (such as
requiring the use of St. Augustine turf).
A science-based MFL that has been sub-
jected to peer review to guarantee that ad-
equate data has been used should be pre-
requisite to any surface water proposal.
Utilities should be encouraged to institute
tiered billing systems that reward low users
and penalize high-volume customers. Some
interventions should be considered that fur-
ther limit the power of homeowner associa-
tions to impose covenants that preclude water
conservation efforts.
Permit applications should include scien-
tific evaluations of the quantities of sources
proposed for withdrawal, providing a life
span of the source. Permit evaluations should
include reviews of treatment processes being
proposed to ensure no toxic by-products are
discharged. All permits issued should include
realistic, enforceable limits that preclude
damage to natural systems.
With projected water use demand that
includes at least a 20 percent increase by
2025, studies that show our aquifer will be
overdrawn by 2013 and long-term data that
documents declines in almost all spring flows
in Florida, we have to address these issues
now and get it done right!
Every citizen of Florida should be greatly
concerned about these issues and do every-
thing possible to address the problems before
they affect our ecology, our lifestyles and our
pocketbooks. You can learn more about this
topic and what you can do to help at www.

From Editor's Notebook: Homer Craig got
hit by a surprise this past Easter. Since the
high school was unable to prepare the eggs
for the traditional Winter Garden Lions Club
Easter egg hunt, Craig had to boil and dye
125 dozen eggs in order to be ready for the
eager youngsters who gathered at the City
Auditorium.
Speaking of eggs, the local Goodyear Ser-
vice Store has been holding a "Let's Fight
Inflation" sale during which it has been sell-
ing bread for 10 cents a loaf and eggs for 20
cents a dozen. That's quite a bargain in this
day and age!

Students lead Windermere

Prep's green program


By Christine Prevel
Windermere Prep student

The Windermere Prepara-
tory School community has
collectively decided to take a
closer look at how the simplest
of changes can make a world
of difference.
It all started when Chelsea
Bell, a junior and founder of
the WPS Ecology Club, dis-
covered a problem.
"I noticed that most of our
daily waste at school could be
recycled, and I just wanted to
promote that," Bell said.
Together with WPS As-
sistant Headmaster William
Ford and several lower- and
upper-school teachers, the
"Going Green" program was
developed to recycle materi-
als such as glass, aluminum,
paper and cardboard. The task
is made easier because only
one container is necessary for
the disposal of all four types
of resources.
The kickoff ceremony for the
"Going Green" program took
place in the gymnasium on St.
Patrick's Day to inform as well
as get the student body excited
about the new project.
The "Going Green" recy-
cling program, however, is
only one of the plans formu-
lated to make the school more
environmentally friendly.
"WPS will also be aggres-
sively seeking to become a
green campus," Ford said.
"We mean all products used
on campus will be green.
For example, paper products,


cleaning detergents, filtered
vacuum systems, etc., will
replace all products currently
being used."
Since the school assembly,
the Ecology Club distributed
recycling bins that are already
in place in all high school
classrooms.


In the end, Bell realizes it all
comes down to participation
and cooperation throughout
the school something she
hopes to spark herself.
"I hope I can encourage ev-
eryone to recycle, so in our
own environment, we can cut
costs and preserve energy."


Windermere Prep 10th-grader Camille Baker joins the 'Go
Green' effort to make WPS more environmentally friendly
by tossing her plastic water bottle into one of the school's
new recycling bins..

Westmont Green Homes
wins Lake Parade of Homes


Curt Roese and Jim Rahman,
owners of Winter Garden-based
Westmont Green Homes, an-
nounced they won first place
during the recent Lake.County
Parade of Homes for the $1.5- to
$2-million price category. West-
mont entered the home they built
for the Green Builder VISION
House Series, which was show-
cased during the 2008 Interna-
tional Home Builders Show held
at the Orange County Conven-
tion Center.
Located off the shore of Lake
Apopka in Montverde, the high-
end, architect-designed custom
home was designed to demon-
strate that green can be not only
glamorous but also sustainable
by considering durability and
life safety in an active hurricane
zone.
The VISION House was certi-
fied per the standards and guide-
lines of the NAHB Model Green
Home Building, the Florida
Green Building Coalition, the
Institute for Business and Home
Safety "Fortified for Safer Liv-
ing" and the Florida Water Star
program.
Westmont Green Homes
also announced it has begun
construction on four certified
custom green homes at Lake
Burden at the Lakes of Wind-
ermere. A two-story home with
approximately 3,500 square
feet of living space was set to
be showcased during the HBA
of Metro Orlando Parade of


Homes this month. The other
three homes will be available
by December. Each home will
be certified under the Florida
Green Building Coalition stan-
dards.
Westmont is also currently
building in Blue Springs Re-
serve, Dora Estates and Mag-
nolia Bay, as well as several
"on-your-lot" projects.

646 E. Plant St. Winter Garden


The city of Winter Garden
has been working for nearly a
year on upgrades and renova-
tions at Zanders Park. These
changes include a new play-
ground, restrooms and picnic
pavilion. The park is at 322
11th St.
"It has been a long process,
and we're delighted to open
this park back up to the com-
munity," said Jay Conn, Win-
ter Garden Parks and Recre-
ation director. "The children
have been coming by daily,
and they can't wait to get on
that playground."
The community will get
the chance to use the new
amenities at a rededication
celebration Sunday, April
26, from 10 a.m. to noon. A
ribbon-cutting ceremony will
officially open the facility
to the public at 10:15. Event
participants will also be treat-
ed to face painting, carnival
games, popcorn and pool ac-


tivities.
Several issues had neces-
sitated the overhaul of the fa-
cility. The previous wooden
pavilion had been knocked
down by the 2005 hurricanes
and was replaced by a more
durable steel structure. A
playground replacement was
also needed to update the ag-
ing and worn existing equip-
ment. The biggest chance in
the park was the removal of
the street that had previously
separated Bouler Pool from
the rest of the park.
This added more place
space to the one-acre park
and eliminated the danger of
vehicles coming in contact
with those who traveled be-
tween the park and pool site.
Bouler Pool was upgraded
and finished in the first phase
of the redevelopment project
in May 2007. Together, the
two facility upgrades cost ap-
proximately $1.1 million.


A $587,000 Community
Development Block Grant
and a $120,000 Florida Rec-
reation Development Assis-
tance Program grant aided in
the construction funding.
Preliminary design work
for the site began during
Winter Garden's 2006 Park
and Recreation Master Plan
process. The pool improve-
ments took place from Feb-
ruary to May 2007, while the
park construction began in
November and will finish in
about a week.
The celebration is free and
open to the public. Because
of the limited parking at the
park site, event-goers are be-
ing asked to park at the Ninth
Street church of Christ, 997
Ninth St., where there will be
a free shuttle provided to the
park grounds.
For more informa-
tion, call the rec office at
407-656-4155.

April is Water Conservation Month


April, typically Florida's
driest month, is Water Conser-
vation Month, and the city of
Winter Garden is participating
in water-conscious programs.
The City Commission will
hold its 10th Annual Drop
Saver Contest on April 24.
A showerhead exchange will
take place from 10 a.m. to 4
p.m. April 26-27 at Ace Hard-
ware, 500 S. Dillard Street.
A landscape seminar will
be presented by the Univer-
sity of Florida's Florida Yards
and Neighborhoods Program.
It takes place at 9 a.m. May
3 at Little Hall, 29 W. Garden
Ave.
A speaker from the Water
Conservation Office is avail-
able for homeowners associa-
tion meetings and other com-
munity events. The department
offers hands-on assistance,
presentations and education
for consumers of all ages on a
number of water conservation
topics.
For details on these programs
or to schedule a speaker, call
Dennis A. Jones at the city of
Winter Garden, 407-654-2732,
or e-mail him at djones@win-
tergarden-fl.gov.
The department offers five
tips on efficient water use.
Walk your yard frequently
to check the irrigation system


to make sure the water is go-
ing onto the lawn and not
the house, road or sidewalks.
Citizens can run the irrigation
system any time of the day for
up to 10 minutes for mainte-
nance.
Spring is here, and it's
time to get out and work in
your yard. When installing
new plants and turf, be sure to
water small areas with a hand-
held hose equipped with an au-
tomatic shut-off nozzle.
Get your lawn mower
ready for summer by sharpen-
ing or replacing worn blades
and adjusting your mower to
the highest setting. Blades
should be sharpened every
five cuttings. A clean-cut yard
not only looks better, but it will
lessen turf stress and possible
problems.
Go easy on the fertilizer.
Always follow the instruc-
tions more is not better.
Never fertilize before a rain;
you have a good chance of los-
ing a majority of the fertilizer
to stormwater runoff.
Try watering as needed
instead of on a predetermined
schedule. Wait until the grass
shows signs of distress (bluish-
gray in color or with folded
leaf blades) then apply water.
If rain is predicted within the
next 24 hours, don't irrigate.

The Garden Theatre will of-
fer its inaugural educational en-
deavor July 21 through Aug. 8
for ages 5-14 focusing on three
subjects acting, improvisa-
tion and puppetry with sea-
soned and talented instructors
from PB&J Theatre Factory,
Jester Theater Company and
Hands in Art Puppets.
"Oceans Alive!" Acting Camp
combines theatrical studies with
relevant, age-appropriate marine
themes. By learning the basics
of performance technique and
stage awareness, young actors
will explore aspects of aquatic
life in rivers, lakes and oceans
and incorporate elements of this
in the end-of-the-week show-
case.
"Using Those Creative Juic-
es" Improvisation Camp is a
playful, hands-on class on the
basics of improvisation as an
acting tool and performance
technique. Specifically focused
on introducing children to the
creativity of improv, this class
will share the foundation tools
of the improvisation such as
saying yes to ideas, listening,
a willingness to play and look


silly (alone and with others) and
the value of teamwork.
"Puppet Mania," taught by
professional puppeteer John
Kennedy, is a weeklong puppet-
ry class where the students will
learn how to build and perform
their own puppet characters. The
camp will be split into two age
groups. The 6- to 9-year-olds
will learn how to use simple
craft items to fashion their own
puppets and then learn to per-
form them in several puppet
plays. The 10- to 14-year-olds
will design, build and learn to
perform their own hand puppet
using theater games and char-
acter analysis. The groups will
come together at the end of the
week to perform in a fun revue
with scenes and music starring
the characters they have cre-
ated.
All camps are $150 per week,
and sessions are 9 a.m. to noon
and 1-4 p.m. Students who select
two camps and choose to go all
day pay $250 for the week. Class
sizes are limited to 18 students,
and no experience is necessary.
To register, call 407-877-4736,
Ext. 302.

What's your best slow-cooker recipe?


By Mary Anne Swickerath
At one point in my life I
was close to obsessive about
crockpots (now usually called
slow cookers). I had three of
them, and I once pulled out
all three and had each one
going to create a full meal
(main dish and two sides). For
a long time, I also had a tough
time passing up a slow-cooker
cookbook because I was seek-
ing the perfect recipes to cook
while I was working or gone
for the day. It was a quest.
I am now less intense about
crockpots, but I've been
thinking that warm weather
is a good time to plug them
in again (less electricity, less
kitchen heat).
I would like to hear from


These are just some of Mary Anne's crockpot cookbook
collection.


you, the readers, about your
best slow-cooker recipes,
those that are fool-proof and
delicious. Send them to me


at wotimes@aol.com or mail
them to me at The West Or-
ange Times, 720 S. Dillard
St., Winter Garden, FL 34761


by May 1. Also send your
name and phone number and
where you live. We'll publish
the best next month.
And here's the simplest
recipe I devised long ago.

Italian chicken
Put some sliced onion in
the bottom of a slow cooker
and top with chicken breasts
(on or off the bone). Top
with a jar of good marinara
sauce, such as Rao's. Don't
use a cheap brand. Cook on
low for six to eight hours and
serve with pasta topped with
freshly grated cheese and, if
available, some fresh basil. It
looks and tastes like a dish
that you spent a lot of effort
on.

Windermere Prep student has i
role in Orlando Rep show


Windermere Prep seventh-
grader Jonathan Cortes recently
appeared in his first professional
theater role as one of the chil-
dren in the cast of the Orlando
Repertory Theater's I Never Saw
Another Butterfly.
The play is based on a true
story about the life of a girl,
Raja Englanderova, who sur-
vived Terezin, the Jewish reloca-
tion ghetto/concentration camp,
where the play is set. More than
15,000 Jewish passed through
that camp from 1942-45, and
only 100 survived. Behind the
barbed wire, Erena Synkova
created a little world of laughter
and hope as she educated young
people through creative writing
and art.
There were no butterflies at
Terezin, but for the children,
butterflies became a symbol of
defiance making it possible for
them to express themselves and
dream of the future.
Cortes said that since he knew
no more than basic information
about the Holocaust, his first
serious role was difficult to pre-
pare for.
He said: "We visited the Ho-
locaust Resource Center in Mai-
tland and learned more. Our di-.
rector, Katrina Ploof, helped us a
lot to understand the theme."
His first major role was
Schroeder in You Are a Good
Man, Charlie Brown, followed
by Guido in The Emperor's New
Clothes. He was awarded Best
Actor for his role in the Rep's
The Best Christmas Pageant
Ever, which was part of the
Youth Academy program.
Cortes has been a student
of WPS drama teacher Juliana


Windermere Prep 7th-grad-
er Jonathan Cortes is pic-
tured in his role as 1 of the
children attending the clan-
destine school at Terezin,
the Jewish relocation ghetto
and concentration camp.
He recently appeared in the
Orlando Rep's production of
1I Never Saw Another But-
terfly.'

Moring for the past two years.
'He appeared in the end of the
semester showcase, as well as
in last May's production of You
Can't Take It with You.
He has been on the honor roll
and the Headmaster's List while
at WPS. He is also a member of
the Aspire Chapter of the Na-
tional Junior Honor Society.
In his spare time, Cortes stud-
ies at the Rep's Youth Academy
and enjoys wakeboarding, video
games and spending time with
his sister, Alexa, and their two
dogs.

Mike Thomas and the band jazz things up at First Baptist Church Windermere.


First Baptist Church to hold Java

and Jazz fun this Friday night


The last time First Baptist
Church Windermere jazzed
things up, people loved it.
"I think people were sur-
prised that good jazz music
could come from a church,"
said Mike Thomas, worship
arts pastor at the church on
Main Street in Windermere.
"Jazz is uplifting, fun music.
Anyone can enjoy it as long
as it's played well."
Mike Thomas should know.


He spent a number of years as
a professional trumpet player
touring with the gospel group,
Truth, and working at Walt
Disney World.
"The event is designed to let
people know that the church
is a place where all styles of
music are accepted and where
people can bring their friends
and just hang out," said Thom-
as.
The program promises to be


just as good as last year with
another unique assembly of
some of the best jazz musi-
cians in the area.
The evening of food, fun
and music is set for this Friday
night, April 18, at 7 p.m. Cost
is $10 and includes dessert and
coffee. Tickets are now on sale
at the church office.

Wet weather fails to dampen Rotary Festival


Spring rain showers and wind
did not deter the spirit or the fun
at the annual Windermere Ro-
tary Festival Among the Lakes
April 5-6. The event took place
at the Orlando Utilities Commis-
sion Camp Down Park on Main
Street. As organizers promised,
there was something for every-
one in the family, including an
expanded and juried art show,
new carnival rides, wake board
competition, continuous en-
tertainment, an extensive boat
show and concessions offering a
varied selection of food items.
In the inaugural Windermere
Art Festival, 34 artists, includ-
ing a mix of outdoor art show
veterans and first-time exhibi-
tors, competed in eight different


categories for a total of $7,800
in prize money.
Many of the artists are Central
Floridians but one, Lynn Martin,
journeyed from North Carolina
for the show.
Festival judge Kathleen Corey
of Orlando thoroughly inspected
all the artwork before making
her final decision for the awards
in each category. She awarded
Best of Show to Joe Krawc-
zyk of Orlando for his series of
still life paintings in the oil and
acrylic category.
Laura Pinto, daughter of Ro-
tarian Bill Sims and his wife,
Kay, held the winning raffle
ticket and was the winner of a
19-foot Real boat and trailer,
donated by local boat distributor


Boat Tree Inc.
Everyone agreed Festival
Chairman Darrell Gardner did
an impressive job managing the
two-day event and overcoming
the many obstacles that are part
of coordinating the annual fund-
raiser, including the weather.
The Best of Show Award in
the art show went to Joe Kraw-
czyk of Orlando for his series of
still-life paintings in the Oil and
Acrylic Category.
Proceeds from the event will
benefit West Orange Habitat
For Humanity's "Home at Last

The Olympia High varsity boys and girls tennis teams both won 1st place at last week's
district tournament at Lake Cane Tennis Center.

Olympia tennis sweeps district titles


Through two long days of
competition at Lake Cane
Tennis Center in Dr. Phillips,
both the Olympia High boys
and girls varsity tennis teams
captured district championships
last week.
Winning singles for the boys
were John Cappabianca, Diego
Pires and Tyler Hundley, and


winning doubles teams were
Levan Clark and Cappabianca
(Line 1) and Sam Wood and
Pires (Line 2). Clark and Wood
finished as district runners-up
at No. I and 3 singles positions,
respectively.
Morgan Murray, Lindsey
Jackson and Angela Head led
the Lady Titans to victory in


singles play, while the No. 2
doubles team of Murray and
Jackson also prevailed. Raquel
Rodriquez (No. 1) and Floren-
cia Gutierrez (No. 5) both had
second-place finishes in singles
competition.
Olympia advanced to this
week's regional playoffs in
pursuit of a state title.

Ocoee High's Charles Wells fires a pitch as a DP base runner attempts to steal. The

Lady Warriors
The West Orange High varsi-
ty fastpitch softball team (19-4)
tore through its final regular
season games in preparation of
this week's district playoffs.
Taylor Fawbush fired eight
innings of shutout ball with
12 strikeouts in West Orange's
1-0 victory over Lake Mary last
Thursday. Kelli Lopez went
2-for-4 with a run scored, and
Val Proulx and Danielle Brewer
both added base hits. The game-
winning run came in the eighth
inning when Lopez singled and
was brought home by Brewer's
single and a sacrifice fly by
Proulx.
"We have played pretty good


enter district playoffs on fire


against some Of the best teams
in the area the last few weeks,"
Coach Bobby Brewer said. "I
cannot tell you how proud I
am of these young girls. It was
like a playoff game, and we re-
sponded like a playoff team."
Molly Billue pitched a com-
plete game to up her record
to 4-0 as the Lady Warriors
smacked Lake Brantley 12-4
for Senior Night on April 9.
Fawbush stood out at the plate
with 2 RBIs, 2 runs scored
and her fourth home run of the
season. Proulx added another
homer, and Jasmine Butler,
Lauren Smith, Missy Harvey,
Lopez and Laci Schwenneker


all produced at the plate.
West Orange opened its
impressive week of play by
knocking off highly ranked
Timber Creek 3-2. Danielle
Brewer led off the game with
a double and scored on another
double by Fawbush.
After Timber Creek took a
1-run lead, West Orange tied
the score on back-to-back
hits by Fawbush and Shahlisa
Shirley in the sixth inning. The
teams battled until the 11th
inning when Lopez reached
base on a single and scored the
game-winning run on a double
by Schwenneker off the center-
field wall.


Warrior water polo hosts fund-raiser
The West Orange High varsity boys and girls water polo teams held a fund-raiser last
weekend at Farnsworth Pool in Winter Garden. The student-athletes competed in treada-
thon and shootathons, which required staying in the water for 2 hours while performing
various physical challenges. Cody Canavan won the shootathon, and Alex Litz took the
5-alive game. Pictured at the event are (1-r): front row, Adria Bell, Caitlin Bloom, Stepha-
nie Gainey, Caitlin Ramsey, Jake Smith; back row, Matt Walsh, Jonathan Holmgren,
Jonathan Sinqh, Camavan, Robert Sheppard, Jake Carter and Litz.


DP flag football
rolls to 9th shutout
Cassie Maloney threw for 3
touchdowns and ran for a fourth
to lead the No. 2-ranked Lady
Panther varsity flag football
team to a 25-0 victory over host
St. Cloud last weekend.
Dr. Phillips High extended its
unbeaten record to 10-0 while
recording its ninth shutout of
the season. DP is one game shy
of tying the school record for
shutouts set in 2004.
Maloney's 3-yard run, fol-
lowed by passes to Tia Coker (9
yards) and Chantal McCrimon
(12 yards) gave DP an 18-0 half-
time lead. In the fourth quarter,
Maloney capped off the rout
with an 8-yard TD pass to Mc-
Crimon and an extra-point pass
to Sarah Almaguer.
Earlier last week, DP's streak
of eight consecutive shutouts
ended while the Lady Panthers
remained undefeated with a 21-8
victory over Freedom.
After Maloney's 2-yard touch-
down run, Freedom answered to
take an 8-7 lead in the third quar-
ter. With four minutes remaining
to play and facing fourth-and- 18
at the Freedom 38-yard line, Dr.
Phillips gambled by refusing to
punt. Maloney passed over the
middle to Coker who leaped for
a one-handed catch and raced 38
yards for a touchdown. Coker
hauled in the extra-point catch
to put DP ahead 15-8.
In the final minutes, Freedom
threatened in Panther territory
but fumbled the ball away to
DP's Prenacious Jackson, who
returned the loose ball for an
80-yard touchdown.
The Lady Panthers were set to
play at Ocoee on Tuesday night
and finish the regular season at
home on Thursday against top-
ranked Apopka.
The junior varsity flag foot-
ball team improved to 7-1-1
on the season by defeating St.
Cloud 20-0 and Freedom 13-0
last week. Rosalyn Benja-
min, Shayna Elkin and Ashley
Young scored TDs against St.
Cloud, while Benjamin scored
both touchdowns on Freedom
and Young hauled in the extra
point.

leading," she said. "I was hit-

putting helped me a lot. I was

Dillard Street Elementary students jump rope to promote physical fitness.


Jumping rope
Dillard Street Elementary's
physical education department
challenged students in each
grade level to a rope-jumping
contest. The contest was held
to show that exercising can be


fun and to promote physical
fitness among the youth.
During P.E. class, students
in each grade level jumped
rope until there was only 1
jumper left. The students
jumping for the longest time


without missing were award-
ed a trophy, a certificate and
bragging rights.
A big thank-you goes to
Mr. Mazzola and Mrs. Gallo
for organizing this worthwhile
event.


Crenshaw


A team from Dr. Phillips High recently outpaced 30 other public and private school teams
in Orange County to take 1st place in the Orange/Osceola/Seminole Regional Envirothon
held at Leu Gardens. The team will represent Orange County at the State Envirothon at
Myakka State Park in Sarasota. The envirothon is an outdoor academic competition that
challenges students in the areas of wildlife, soil, aquatics, forestry and the environmental
impacts of recreation. DP team members include Natilee Festa, Deanna Beaver, Saman-
tha Cottingham, Carlos Castellanos, Kyle Cox and Will Casey. The team advisor is Debo-
rah Wasylik, AP environmental science teacher. Sponsorship for the trip was provided by
Progress Energy through the Foundation for OCPS.


Holy Family Catholic


The 3rd-grade students from the Crenshaw School have math name tags. Each student in
Ms. Ashley's class wore a multiplication problem, and their new name was the answer to
the problem. The class felt like secret agents as they only talked by answering problems
and called each other by their new number identification throughout the day. It was a great
practice for the toughest multiplication problems. Pictured'are: Ashley (who was Ms. 25
for the day) and her students (front row) Nick Paduano and Maddie Anderson and (back
row, I-r) Max Blakey, Rawan Musallam, Elysa Tripp, Matthew Marsel and Alexandra Pena.


Lake Whitney


Lake Whitney Elementary's 5th-grade gifted class traveled with teacher Mr. Wisdom to
participate in the annual Project Create held at Amway Arena. The class was challenged
to design and present a housing development with the least possible damage to a wet-
land environment. The students also participated in contests with other Orange County
schools to build a protective design for an egg drop and a structurally sound bridge out
of Popsicle sticks and to study performance of paper airplanes.


Y CUV uD


Holy Family Catholic School students Taylor O'Neal (grade 2), Gabriella Guzzi (grade 4),
Jade Cheek (grade 6), Anyssa Fernandez (grade 7) and Jacquelyn Gutierrez (grade 8) have
been recognized as Florida Sate Champions in their grade levels of the National handwrit-
ing contest. The contest, sponsored by Zaner-Bloser Educational Publishers, recognizes
state and national champions in a contest that evaluates handwriting legibility. As state
champions, the students, their teachers and the principal, Sister Dorothy Sayers, receive
engraved wooden pens, a certificate and a $50 gift certificate for Zaner-Bloser materi-
als. The students will now compete for the title of National Champions in their respective
grade levels. One Grand National Champion is then selected from all National Champions.
This year more than 177,000 students participated nationwide. Pictured are (l-r): (standing)
Cheek, Fernandes, Gutierrez and Sayers; and (kneeling) O'Neal and Guzzi.


Odyssey of the Mind
Holy Family Catholic School
sent three teams to the state
Odyssey of Mind competition
held recently at the University
of Central Florida. The team
had won first place previously
at the regional competition
held in February at Markham
Woods Middle in Sanford.
The fifth-grade team quali-
fied during state competition
to compete in this year's world
competition May 31-June 3
in College Park, Md. The stu-
dents competed against 19
other teams in thq Eccentrics


challenge, creating an original
comedy about three misfits
who solve an Earth-related
problem.
Odyssey of the Mind is a
competition in which teams of
students use creativity to solve
out-of-the-box challenges.
Anna Long, the team's
coach, said that although the
school pays for the teams'
entry fees, each team must
raise money to make the trip
to Maryland.
"It is a once-in-a-lifetime op-
portunity for the team," said
Long., "We have a very short


period of time to raise the
money to make it possible.
The average cost per stu-
dent is close to $1,000. With
seven members on the team,
a coach and chaperone, we're
hoping for local sponsorships.
So, in addition to our students
raising funds, we will appreci-
ate business sponsorships to
meet our financial goals."
Anyone wishing to make
a tax-deductible contribution
to help the team can con-
tact Long at the school at

A Comment & Study of the Scriptures Remembering George Gano


"So let us come bold/v to the throne of
our, gracious God. There we will receive
His mercy, and we will find grace to help
us when we need it most. "
Gal,. 4:16

Alter viewing the city of London from the top
of a double-decker sightseeing bus, we disem-
barked to get a closer look at Buckingham Palace,
the cit residence ofl'the Queen of England. The
massive building is surrounded by iron gates.
allowing tourists and citizens alike a view of the
palace while providing the security required in
thle year 2007. The armed sentries of the Queen's
Guard not only add color, but assure that no one
without the proper credentials passes through the
gates.

As we took it all in, someone remarked that
the Queen was in residence, evidenced by the
royal standard flying high above the palace.
Though I knew she was there, I could not see her

and could only imagine her carrying out the du-
ties of her office. Even my British friend had no
hope of entering the palace that beautiful after-
noon. We commented about how amazing it
would be to have tea with the queen.
While we tarried there for a bit, I recalled an-
other throne room. As a child I knew that God
was on the throne and that He was indeed in
residence in Heaven. But there was a barrier, not
of iron bars, but sin. It was Jesus who removed
my sin, and provided the credentials 1 needed for
an audience with the King of Kings!

Though I didn't see the lovely and gracious
Queen Elizabeth during my visit to London, T
did see a fresh view of my relationship with
Adonia-Jehovah, the Lord our Sovereign.
