Winter Garden raises garbage collection fees
The city also formed a Highway 50 Commercial Corridor Review Board.
By Michael Laval
Winter Garden residents and business owners will pay more for the city's solid waste collection services as of this Thursday, May 1. The City Commission unanimously passed the rate increase at last Thursday's meeting.
The change was based on the findings of Timothy Hunt and Associates Solid Waste Management Consultants, which had been contracted to analyze the city's operations and determine the cost of providing service, as well as to recommend improvements and collection fees.
Public Services Director Don Cochran said the rate increase was necessary for the city to keep up with the expenses of waste collection.
"With the growth Winter Garden has experienced in recent years, we've seen significant cost increases for this department," Cochran.told the commission. "These funds will go directly to subsidizing
our daily operations."
The study advised raising the residential rate from $16 per month to between $18 and $22. The commissioners agreed on setting a new rate of $19 per month per garbage cart. The city of Ocoee's residential rate, Cochran said, already stands at $19 a month, while many other comparable cities are in the same price range.
The commission opted to continue the city's practice of adjusting commercial solid waste rates annually based on the Consumer Price Index for solid waste fees. As a result, Winter Garden's commercial waste fees will increase 2.2 percent.
"We have a great level of service in Winter Garden," said City Manager Michael Boll-hoefer. "We've always picked up whatever you set out, and we would like to maintain our high level of service."
In another matter, the commission took a step toward creating a West State Road 50 Commercial Corridor Review Board. In 2003, Winter Garden established the Commercial Corridor for the purpose of providing standards for buildings, landscaping, signs

Oakland likely will put water tank on school land
The town is also considering installing traffic cameras to deter red-light runners.
By Amy Quesinberry
Where do you put a 500,000-gailon water storage tank and pumping station when you need one? That's the task assigned to the Oakland Town Commission after it received an update at last week's meeting on 67 possible property choices in the town limits.
Oakland must put in the tank and station to make the necessary improvements to its water system to meet current and future demands. The town has been working with Scott Breitenstein of CPH Engineers Inc., which was hired to create a water master plan.
There are four town-owned lots and 63 vacant lots to choose from, but the commission chose to focus on the properties already owned by the town to save more than $170,000 in land expenses. Commissioners discussed VanderLey Park, the property near the Oakland Avenue Charter School, Hull Island Park and the Oakland Nature Preserve.
The minimum space requirement is half an acre.
The costs of putting in the tank and station varied at each piece of property because of the length of pipe
The commission must also decide if it wants an 11 -foot-tall above-ground tank, one buried five feet into the ground or one enclosed in a building resembling a house.
Breitenstein presented a cost breakdown of each of the locations and styles, and the range was between $1.15 million for an above-ground storage tank at VanderLey Park to a $2.9 million for a building facade at ONP.
The commission agreed that, although it is town property, the nature preserve should not be considered. The Hull Island location was also dismissed because it is too close to residents and the park would have to be moved. Commissioner Mike Satterfield was against the VanderLey Park site because the town "would have to cut down valuable trees."
After discussing the four lots, the elected officials agreed the preferred location is the school property because of its low impact on residents. This option would cost from $1.48 million to $2.33 million, depending on the style the commission chooses.
The town will continue discussing such issues as Homeland Security, fencing and landscaping, road access and costs.
On another matter, Dale Woolsey of Nestor Traffic Systems gave a presentation on a red-light camera safety program his com-
pany provides. Police Chief Tim Driscoll invited him to speak so the commission would be informed in case a related legislative bill is passed next week.
The commission said this is a good program and agreed with the chief that the cameras would be most beneficial on Highway 50 at Remington Road and Deer Island and at the two Florida Turnpike intersections.
"It has definite merit," Mayor Kathy Stark said of the program. "It makes sense to do this, from a safety standpoint."
Woolsey said the camera program is designed to change the mindset of drivers "who tend to run red lights. . .
"People are willing to risk life and limb for two minutes of time," he said.
The mayor asked the chief to gather data on red-light running at these intersections.
In other business, the elected officials:
� held a discussion regarding .outside storage of boats following several complaints. A town employee will deliver a copy of the ordinance addressing this issue to each of the violators, and they will have two weeks to remove their boats.
� listened as Mayor Kathy Stark read a proclamation declaring April 22, 2008, Earth Day and May 10, 2008, Therapy Dog Awareness Day in the town of Oakland.
Farmers' market coming to downtown W.G.
By Amy Quesinberry
Soon you won't have to travel to Winter Park to experience a farmers' market with fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables. Such a market will debut in downtown Winter Garden on June 7 and continue each Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The location � the southwest corner of Lakeview Avenue and Plant Street � might be familiar to residents who remember a similar market in the 1990s.
This market is a result of the Historic Downtown Winter Garden Merchants Guild, a group of business owners who are working together to continue revitalizing Plant Street with such events as the farmers' market and weekend musical performances. Because of this, downtown businesses will have the first option of opening a vending booth at the market.
Food- and plant-related items will be the key components of the market. Vendors can sell, for instance,
produce, garden plants, herbs, cut flowers and seeds; cooked or prepared foods such as baked goods, fresh bread, seafood, barbecued or smoked meat, cheese, smoothies, pasta and ethnic food; and specialty foods such as coffee, condiments, jams, nuts, dried herbs, sauces and flavored oils; handmade artwork, crafts, clothing and stained glass.
A limited number of spaces will be available for non-profit or educational organizations.

Attending the Culture Keepers' annual dinner and celebration are, l-r, Royce Walden, Sally Lofton, Ruby Benton (accepting for Hattye Singletairy) and William Johnson.
Culture Keepers recognize 3 citizens of distinction
The West Orange County Culture Keepers Inc. held their annual dinner April 5 at Tanner Hall in Winter Garden in honor of three citizens of distinction: Sally Lofton, Hattye Singletary and Royce Walden.
Lofton, a longtime resident of Winter Garden, followed her vision by not allowing the word "fail" to enter her vocabulary. After holding numerous jobs, she received her high school diploma from the adult night school at Charles R. Drew High and later enrolled in the Orange County Vocational Nursing School at the age of 48.
She was granted her LPN nursing degree in 1966. She worked in several positions, most notably as a nurse at West Orange Hospital in Winter Garden (now Health Central in Ocoee). She has been an avid volunteer with community organizations, and she attends the Ninth Street Church of Christ.
Singletary, is a graduate of the Winter Garden elementary/ junior high school system. She attributes her formative years and success to "excellent teachers and community people who served as surrogate parents." She graduated from Florida A&M University with a bachelor's degree in elementary education and received her master's degree in administration and supervision with an emphasis on K12 reading and curriculum.
She has also been involved in religious, civic and social organizations. The Culture Keepers group is her brainchild and the fulfillment of a vision she and other citizens had.
Walden is a native of Sanford. His grandfather was mayor of Goldsboro, a black settlement in west Sanford. He served in the United States Army Medical Corps, graduated from Florida A&M and taught science and band at Charles R. Drew High.
Open house at Health Central Park focuses on outpatient therapy
Health Central Park, a nursing and rehabilitation center, has expanded its therapy department and is inviting the community to an open house during National Nursing Home Week. The event is Thursday, May 15, from 3-6 p.m., and guests can see how the outpatient program operates. Refreshments will be served.
HCP began its outpatient therapy program with five Nautilus machines that were chosen to strengthen multiple muscle groups. These machines are used to increase circulation to the exercised body parts, decrease edema, improve coordination and have a positive impact on
bone mineral density.
HCP has recently added three new Nautilus machines (leg extension, seated leg curl and hip abduction/adduction) that are primarily used for orthopedic rehabilitation. The benefits of this new equipment include flexibility of positioning and range of motion control, which results in decreased pain, increased energy and better balance.
For more information on the outpatient therapy program, call HCP's rehabilitation center at 407-296-1600, Ext. 1630 or Ext. 1650. Health Central Park is at 411 N. Dillard St., Winter Garden.
Health Central offers new program for new moms and moms-to-be
He taught at several area schools after completing graduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania in 1966.
He was later named coordinator of elementary education for Orange County schools. His love of education and improving the lives of children propelled him further, and he was appointed in 1974 as associate superintendent for Orange County Public Schools.
Walden later entered the investment field as a banker, so his community service did not end with public education. He' was honored because his visions took him from the classroom into the financial world, where he assisted children and adults.
The evening began with the words of Douglas Richards: "When you reach for your dreams, no matter what they may be, you grow from the reaching; you learn from the trying; you win from the doing."
Is your mom the best?
Elementary students are being invited to write an essay (250 words or less) on why their mother is "the Best Mom in West Orange County." The event is sponsored by Betty J's Florist in Ocoee. The essay must be in the child's words, but adults can help write out or type the essay.
Three winners will be chosen. The first-place winner's mother will receive a fresh arrangement once a month for a year, and the second-and third-place winners will receive a fresh bouquet of flowers.
The deadline to enter is May 2. Essays can be mailed to Betty J's Florist, 6 S. Btu-ford Ave., Ocoee, 34761; or delivered to the shop during business hours.
Stop by Health Central this Saturday, May 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for its Healthy Beginnings event for women thinking about becoming pregnant or already expecting.
The program will take place in the hospital atrium and will include informative seminars from physicians on topics, such as The Art of Eating for Two, Planning for a Healthy Pregnancy and Child Safety, among
Area vendors, including The Glow Maternity and Baby Boutique, Babies 'R' Us, Simulac, Goodstart, Kids Safety, will also be on hand to provide information on the latest and greatest in baby attire, furniture, etc. Educational materials will be available as well as giveaways, door prizes and product samples.

SHOPPING FOR A MOVING COMPANY
Whether you are moving across town or across the country, it is a good idea to shop around for a household mover. Local moving companies are very competitive. When interstate movers were more regulated by the Interstate Commerce Commission, they charged basically the same rates. Since that industry has been deregulated, the rates are varied and even negotiable, so it pays to compare.
If you are in the market for a, mover, get recommendations from friends or neighbors. Call several companies for estimates and ask how their rates are calculated. Find out what kind of insurance against damage or breakage is included in their charges and how much that additional coverage will cost you. The charges are usually broken down into two areas -packing, and loading-unloading. You can sometimes save a considerable amount of money by doing your own packing, but doing so may limit the mover's liability.

Letters to the editor
ONP 'Killerbees' brandish their weapons as they begin another concerted effort to eliminate invasive exotic plant species as the sandhill restoration at the preserve continues. The group will meet monthly to continue their killing, and volunteers are wel: come to join the group. Ready to attack the invasive plants are l-r: Phyllis Hickman, Jim Thomas, Shari Wardlaw, Don Hickman, Kathy Hale and Dennis Foltz.
ONP begins next phase of upland restoration
The upland portions of Oakland Nature Preserve (ONP) were cleared and planted in citrus more than 80 years ago. With massive freeze damage during the late 1980s, most of the site was then densely planted with slash pine intended for use as pulpwood for the paper industry (and to maintain agricultural designation for tax purposes).
As ONP was acquired and developed by a group of volunteers, the long-term goal of restoring the site back to the original sandhill plant community was started by killing the remaining citrus trees and cutting a portion of the planted pines. The pines and citrus monoculture were, for the most part, devoid of wildlife species, and the main goal of the restoration is to provide suitable habitat for the many species adapted to this particular plant community.
One of the greatest problems complicating any upland restoration is the rapid growth of exotic invasive plant species that inhibit re-growth of native species. As soon as the pines were cut and the canopy opened, vast areas became covered by lantana, Johnson grass, natal grass, cogon grass, castor bean and many other invasive species � and the battle began.
Under a typical restoration of this sort, prescribed burning of the site would be used to help control the exotics. This works well because the native species endemic to sandhills � and flatwoods are immune to the fire damage, which actually stimulates some species to form seeds while the exotics are more susceptible to fire damage. Because of the proximity of this site to the Florida Turnpike and to residential development, burning became impossible.'
The strategy adapted by ONP involved treatment with herbicides to begin some control and, at the same time, allow fast-growing pioneer tree species to form a canopy, shading out many of the understory and groundcover noxious species. After 10 years, these species have provided enough shade to help control many of the invasives, and this year, for the first time, a dense layer of fallen leaves has been noted, beginning an organic replenishment of the topsoil. The major pioneer trees were black cherry, laurel oaks and the remain-
ing slash pines that were left.
The next major phase involves removal of the pioneer species and replanting of the desired species, primarily longleaf pine, turkey oak, bluejack oak and pignut hickory with varied shrubs, wildflowers and groundcovers typical of the sandhill community. The pioneer trees will be killed and left standing for habitat as the introduced species are allowed to grow. The canopy will be manipulated to provide the right ratio of endemic species.
The first project has been initiated in a plat near the parking lot and new environmental center and was made possible by the Environmental Section of MSCW, an Orlando community design firm, that provided necessary funding and labor to install as part of an Earth Day celebration. The plot will be called the MSCW Forest and will be interpreted as part of the environmental education program for the preserve. Other companies will be invited to do the same to help provide further restoration of the site.
The restoration sites will need continual maintenance to prevent further invasion by exotics, and a new team has been organized to provide this function. The Killerbees will meet monthly and will be trained to control these invasive species before they become established in restoration areas. They will generally meet at 10:30 A.M. the on the second Saturday of every month, and volunteers are gready needed to help in this project. The preserve volunteers urge everyone to consider becoming a Killerbee.
People might be concerned as they see trees dead in the preserve, so it is important that the entire process be continually interpreted. The major environmental theme at ONP is ecologic restoration, and this relatively new science will dominate the education program as restoration of Lake Apopka, the adjacent forested wetlands and the uplands continue.
Interested persons are invited to review these projects at ONP and encouraged to volunteer time and provide donations to assist in these important restoration efforts.

Smiles welcome resident at W.G. City Hall
I went up to Winter Garden City Hall a few days ago to apply for the water discount for senior citizens. Imagine my surprise when I found smiling faces happy to serve me.
A very beautiful lady, on the inside as well as the outside, not only helped me with the
papers, she also brought the papers to my home. My neighbors were very impressed with Angee Grimmage.
Thank you, Ms. Grimmage and City Hall.

From "Garden Varieties" by Bill Story: Brotherly love seems to be especially strong" in Winter Garden when we think about the number of brothers in business together. They might have pulled each other's hair and thrown sand in each other's eyes when they were kids, but they get along in business together now. Think of the combos � Milton and Arthur Fic-quette; P,H. andM.C. Britt; "Sleepy" and "Buttle" Bray; Tom and Collie Biggers; Fred, Frank and Bert Roper; Julian and Calvin Sadler; Jim and Hoyle Pounds; T.T. and W.F.

Winter Garden Times publisher Don Barnes: Pierre Salinger, who is currently advising Bobby Kennedy on his campaign, says that Nelson Rockefeller is the best Republican hopeful this year. He says that Dick Nixon will just fade away from the scene. Pierre isn't one of our favorite politicians, but we'll have to go along with, at least, his opinion about Dicky.

OCPS building program helps local companies
Since June 2005, the Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) construction program has awarded nearly $616 million in contracts to construction, architectural and engineering firms in Central Florida. The date was presented at the April 17 meeting of the Citizens' Construction Oversight and1 Value Engineering Committee (COVE).
"This aggressive building program has been an enormous stimulus to the Central Florida economy and has gone a long way to renovate, replace and provide new schools for our children," COVE Chairman
Howard Roland said. "The program is making schools in Orange County one of the greatest assets this community has."
Since 1997, the panel has been overseeing all public school construction projects in-Orange County. COVE is made up of volunteers with experience in construction, engineering, finance and auditing. None of them do business with the district, and the committee is independent of the school system.
According to the report, more than 79 percent of the school construction projects have been
awarded to Central Florida contractors and subcontractors. Architectural and engineering firms located in Central Florida received more than 96 percent of the projects dating back to June 2005.
"The School Board recently approved budget adjustments that will accelerate renovation of at least 15 more projects," said OCPS Superintendent Ronald Blocker. . "That decision will help us provide modern facilities and state-of-the-art technology sooner for our students. I am very proud that everyone, including local firms and employees are helping us achieve that goal."

In "Puppet Mania," taught by professional puppeteer John Kennedy, students will learn how to build and perform their own puppet characters. The 6- to 9-year-olds will learn how to use simple craft items to fashion their own puppets
and then learn to perform them. The 10- to 14-year-olds will design, build and learn to perform their own hand puppet using theater games and character analysis. The groups will come together at the end of the week to perform scenes starring the characters they have created. �
Camps are $150 per week, and sessions are 9 a.m. to noon and 1-4 p.m. Students who select two camps and go all day pay $250. Class sizes are limited to 18 students; no experience is necessary. To register, call 407-877-4736, Ext. 302.

Great Wine Shootout is huge success
The third annual "Great Wine Shootout," supporting the Bob Allen Family Foundation, was again a tremendous success. More than 150 Foundation supporters attended the event April 13 at the lakefront home of Rol-lie Allen in Windermere.
"We are thrilled with the outcome of this year's Great Wine Shootout," said Allen, president of the Foundation. "It just keeps getting better every year. We had great attendance, great wine, great food and great weather. What more could we ask for?"
Tim Varan, owner of Tim's Wine Market, who now has a store on Main Street in Windermere, conceived the Foundation's main fundraiser of the year, the shootout.
In addition to the welcoming glass of Proseco, guests were able to sample 25 wines, grouped into five categories, and then vote on their favorite in each group.
"Getting guests involved in the selections makes the event more fun," said Rick Allen, treasurer of the Foundation.
"It's always interesting to learn the crowd's assessment of the wines being poured."
This year's winner was the Hob Nob Pinot Noir from the Languedoc region of France.
"This is such a nice event," said Tim Varan. "The attendees are so gracious, it is a pleasure to pour for them. Everyone has a real interest in learning."
Puff 'N' Stuff catering prepared an elaborate menu to complement the wines, including lobster stuffed ravioli and
Anne Bailey (left) and Alice Marshall shared a table at The Great Wine Shootout.
The event also features a special drawing for donated prizes. This grand prize was an under-the-counter wine cooler stocked with 32 bottles featured at the event. Christine Ryan was the winner. Darlene Bitel won a four-course dinner for eight catered and served by Puff 'N' Stuff, along with wines paired to each course by a representative from Tim's. Barbara Hamre took home a surfboard donated by Ron Jon's Surf Shop.
"We are so lucky to have the support off such wonderful sponsors," said CT Allen, event chairman.
"Tim is.just a tireless supporter of our efforts and we couldn't do it without his staff and the unbelievable food and staff of Puff 'N' Stuff and Mears Transportation who provided the

Friday night headliner will be .38 Special. Both days of concerts are free of charge, and always draw a large crowd.
Adkins' second album, If You're Going through Hell, has been a big success, following on his strong debut album, Honesty. He's had four No. 1 hits off his second album, including the title track, plus "Watching You," "These Are My People" and "Clean This Gun."

and other items to ensure that development and redevelopment along the highway would be done in an aesthetically appealing manner.
"When this was done before, I think the great failure was the lack of input from members of the community and people who would be affected by this," Bollhoe-fer said. "Although the ordinance creating the corridor was well-intentioned, staff has determined that changes could be made to improve the ordinance."
Commissioner Gerald lowers, who owns a business on West Colonial Drive and spoke out against the measure in 2003, said he is now willing to give it another try.
"I know a lot of business owners who would like to see something done but want it done the right way," .lowers said. "If Highway 50 is truly the gateway to Winter Garden, then we need to get it right."
After passing the resolution last Thursday, the commissioners agreed to submit nominations to Bollhoefer for the Commercial Corridor Review Board. The nominees will be voted on at the next commission meeting.
The board will be composed of seven voting members with the following qualification requirements: two members must own a business within the Commercial Corridor; one must own both property and a business located within the corridor in unincorporated Orange County; one member must own undeveloped or soon-to-be redeveloped property in the corridor; two members must be residents of Winter Garden who do not own a business or property within the corridor; and one member must be a professional urban planner or similar professional.
The review board will also have two non-voting members � the city planning director and economic development director or his or her designees.
Voting members will be appointed for two-year terms, and any member can be removed, with or without cause, by the City Commission at any time. The board will hold public meetings to receive input from citizens and eventually make recommendations to the City Commission.
In other business, the elected officials: -� accepted Commissioner

DP flag football wins 4th district crown, advances to regional final
The West Orange High varsity fastpitch softball players are cheered by their home fans as they race to the field prior to last Friday's regional playoff victory.
WOHS softball defeats Eau Gallie at regionals
The Lady Warriors continued their run toward the state playoffs with last Friday's 4-3 victory over nationally ranked Eau Gallie. The playoff win propelled West Orange into the regional finals, set for Tuesday night at Durant, with a shot at the state Final Four on the line.
Eau Gallie entered the game as the nation's No. 6-ranked team, but couldn't overcome West Orange pitching sensation Taylor Fawbush, who threw a complete game for her 21 st win of the season while also going l-for-3 at the plate with a run scored.
West Orange struck first when Danielle Brewer doubled to centerfield and was knocked
home by Jasmine Butler in the third inning. The Lady Warriors clung to a 1 -0 lead until the sixth inning when Eau Gallie scored a pair of runs on two hits and an error. West Orange regained the advantage in the bottom half of the inning with three runs.
Butler sparked the rally by hitting a single, stealing second base and advancing to third on a wild pitch. Shahlisa Shirley connected for an infield ground ball that sent Butler racing for home. Eau Gallie's throw to the plate was in time, but a hard slide by Butler knocked the ball loose. Fawbush then reached base with a bunt single that placed runners at the corners.
Kelli Lopez, who entered to run in place of Fawbush, moved
up to second base before Val Proulx smacked a 2-run double to give West Orange a late 4-2 lead. Eau Gallie tacked on a run with a solo homer in the seventh inning. Molly Billue made a falling catch on a tough fly ball to record the final out.
"We have played in some big games this year, but I'm not sure any were bigger than this one," WOHS Coach Bobby Brewer said. "I am so proud of our young girls, we have been playing with so much emotion and toughness of late."
Brewer also praised the play of catcher Bree Brasch.
"I do not think anyone has been any tougher than Bree behind the plate," he said. "She has just been great for us."
Zach Bichard hit 3 RBIs in Foundation Academy's district semifinal victory over CFCA.
Foundation baseball reaches district final
The Foundation Academy baseball team (11-7) advanced to the district championship game for the first time in the program's history by defeating Faith Christian 6-5 last week. The Foundation Lions were set to face Central Florida Christian Academy in the district title game.
Trailing 4-1 in the fifth inning, Foundation rallied with Zach Bichard's bat and three innings of strong pitching by Nate Richards, who entered the game and allowed one run to earn the victory. Bichard knocked in 3 RBIs, and his
teammates added three more runs in the sixth inning. Second baseman James Ellison scooped up a ground ball to end Faith Christian's comeback attempt on the game's final at-bat.
In other Foundation sports, the elementary students took second place at the National Training Center Private School Elementary Track Meet last week.
The following Foundation student-athletes took home medals: gold, Lauren Gall, Madison Ernich, Nicholas Daley (2), Justin Harrison, Jordan Richards, Nathan Leon and
Tim Mansingh; silver, Kait-lyne Bonds (2), Kaley Oliver, Reilly Lord, Kendall Dawson, Dani Lord, Lauren Miller, Sarah Smith, Victoria Roebke, Stevanna Ames, Chanz Odom, Walker Collins, Zach Maxwell (2), Jaime Rivera, Paul Mansingh, Landon Worley and David Kwader; bronze, Jenny .McCallum, Brooke Degraide, Amanda Hall, Kayla Zelsman, Thomas Sandargas, Hudson Griffin, Tim Mansingh, Jaren Lewis (2), Michael Richards (2), Remy Bleak, Odom, Evan Lawless (2), Rivera, Harrison and Paul Mansingh.

Rich, Fedell elected to DPHS Athletic Hall of Fame
Former Panther basketball great Jason Rich and boys golf Head Coach Bob Fedell have been elected to the Dr. Phillips High School Athletic Hall of Fame.
Rich, who graduated in 2004, was named first team all-state for his junior and senior years. He remains the only Panther basketball player to have ever accomplished that feat. Rich graduated as the school's all-time leader in points scored in a season and points per game average. Rich was rated as one of the top players in America at his position and was a member
of the Jordan Capital Classic all-star roster after leading DP to an undefeated Metro Conference record in 2004.
Set to graduate from Florida State this semester after a successful four-year basketball career, Rich leaves the Seminoles as one of the program's top 20 scorers in school history.
As DP boys golf coach, Fedell earned state championships in 1990 and 1991 after a state runner-up finish in 1989. Fedell, who has taught-at DPHS since the school's inception, compiled a record of 87-6-1 during his tenure. He
holds the second-best winning percentage (.935) in school history in any sport. Fedell was elected to the Metro Conference Hall of Fame in 1992 and continues to be one of the school's most visible supporters of athletics.
The DPHS Hall of Fame ceremony will be held in the north campus cafeteria on Wednesday, May 21, at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free, and the entire community is invited. Refreshments will be served following the ceremony, which will also include the winners of the annual DP athletic awards.
The Lady Panther varsity flag football team captured its fourth district championship in five years with last week's 14-0 victory over St. Cloud in the tournament finals. DP advanced to the regional playoffs and defeated Timber Creek last Saturday to set up a showdown with Apo-pka on Tuesday evening for the regional championship.
Cassie Maloney ran for a touchdown and threw for another in the 20-0 semifinal win over Timber Creek. The Lady Panthers saw a pair of early drives stall with interceptions in the end zone, but Maloney's 2-yard run followed by an extra-point pass
to Sarah Almaguer gave DP a 7-0 lead by halftime.
In the third quarter, Dr. Phillips dipped into its bag of tricks with Rebecca Lenning taking a pitch from Maloney, rolling out and heaving a 25-yard touchdown pass to Prenacious Jackson. DP iced the game in the fourth quarter with a 10-yard TD pass from Maloney to Tia Coker over the middle.
The Lady Panther defense logged its 13th shutout in 15 games to guarantee a spot in the regional finals. DP (14-1) was set to battle top-ranked and unbeaten Apopka (14-0), which handed Dr. Phillips its only loss
earlier in the season.
Earlier last week, Maloney tossed a pair of touchdown passes in DP's district title victory over St. Cloud. After a scoreless first quarter, Jackson grabbed an interception and returned the ball deep into St. Cloud territory, setting up Maloney's 4-yard TD pass to Almaguer.
Philicia Douglas returned a punt 35 yards to set up a 6-yard Maloney to Coker touchdown pass. Jesily Ruiz, Stephanie Pan-cotto, Dunia Aburish and Latitat Oginni were relentless on the pass rush, while Chantal McCri-mon, Douglas and Lisa Vinson all recorded interceptions.
Lady Panthers gear up for state track meet
Six members of the Dr. Phillips High varsity girls track team will compete in this Saturday's state championship meet at Showalter Field in Winter Park.
Dynasty Jones (200m, 4x400m), Rachel Boggs (1600m, 4x800m), Erin Chance (300m hurdles, 4x400m, 4x800m), Martina Walston (4x400m, 4x800m), Sarai Waters (4x400m) and Christine Onderick (4x800m) led DP to a fifth-place finish out of 33 teams at last week's regional championships and hope to lead the team to its best state finish since 2001 (19th) on Saturday.
Although no members of the varsity boys track team advanced to the state meet, several Panthers set many personal records at the regional championships.
Senior place-winners included Steve Scott (shot put), Bradley Moore (110m hurdles, 300m hurdles, 4x400m), Brandon Kicklighter (800m, 4x400m), Robertho Petit-Frere (4x800m, 800m, 4x400m) and Ryan Dey (4x800m, 1600m, 3200m). Underclassmen place-winners included Sean White (4x800m, 1600m), Novian Middleton (4x800m, 1600m), Alex Heyen (4x400) and Alex Mund (3200m).
The Panther varsity boys volleyball team fell to rival Olympia last week. DP (14-11) entered this week's district tournament as the No. 4 seed and sought redemption with a rematch against the top-seeded Titans set for Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. at Cypress Creek High.
DP swept Oak Ridge 25-21, 25-20,25-9 last week with Jordan Haupt racking up 9 kills. The Panthers rolled on Senior Night by beating visiting Wekiva 25-18,25-8,25-20. Victor Cal-lado finished with 8 kills and 6 service aces.

the season with an 11-2 overall team record and finished runner-up at the district tournament.
The varsity boys water polo team earned a spot in the district finals and avenged an early-season loss by beating Boone 11-10. DP's run ended, though, with a 23-8 loss to Cypress Creek in the finals to finish as district runner-up for the second time in three years. Coach Leo Ramirez logged his 31st victory to set the DPHS record for most wins and highest winning percentage (.564) by boys water polo coach.
The varsity girls water polo team batted Cypress Creek but fell 10-8 in the district tournament semifinals. The Lady Panthers finished with a 10-8 record, their fourth winning season in a row.

cial to achieving an ultimate goal, whether its improving grades or getting the lead role in the school play.
To share their Fist Pump Moment, children are asked to visit tigerwoodsfoundation.org and, with parents' permission, submit a video in which they describe their favorite experience and its significance. Those without video access can e-mail their moment for posting.
Video and written entries will be voted on by Web site visitors with prizes going to the top 10 submissions every month. Prizes include iPods, Tiger Woods EA video games and Target gift cards.

Urban Flats offers 'uptown' fun and food
By Mary Anne Swickerath
The Urban Flats restaurant in Winter Garden opened between Christmas and New Year's Day on Daniels Road, part of the Winter Garden Village shopping-and-eating extravaganza, yet it has only
recently begun to develop its own identity with locals. Urban Flats is way south of the city's downtown and is not a Mexican restaurant � being a little too close in name to Tiajuana Flats. But it does offer "uptown" fun and food in an upscale environment.
Server Jane Thomas delivers a Black and Bleu flatbread at Urban Flats in Winter Garden.
A variety of delicious flat-breads are the key to the restaurant's name, and 18 are offered on the current menu, including such standouts as Tuscan Chicken, Orange Chili-Duck, Fig and Pro-sciutto and the Turkey, Pear and Brie, all priced $10 or under.
"We consider our food a healthy alternative to pizza," said General Manager Tim O'Hara. "We have no fryers, and our big oven [in which most of the food is cooked] is the focal point of our kitchen."
Seven salads and small plates are also popular choices at Urban Flats, highlighted by the Urban (a salad of greens, golden raisins, sunflower seeds, goat cheese and white honey balsamic vinaigrette) and the crab cakes served with roasted red potatoes.
The tasty appetizers (called "starters" on the menu) include Tuna Poki, Truffle Mac and Cheese, Baked Cheese and Tomato and Arugula, Artichoke and Bleu Cheese Dip.
Decadent desserts are topped by the Chocolate Fondue and the Chocolate Molten Lava Cake, and there's also a Sinful Sugarfree Cheesecake.
But one of the most impressive things about Urban Flats is the wine list. It features nearly 100 carefully chosen wines, with 36 served by the glass. The freshness of the wines by the glass is preserved by the Cruvinet system that holds wines at the proper temperature and keeps them as fresh as when they were first opened by replacing oxygen with odorless, tasteless nitrogen gas.
These wines are featured during Wine Down Wednesdays, a popular weekly event from 5-8 p.m. that draws from 30-75 people into the large bar area. For $17, patrons can

taste two red and two white wines and enjoy finger foods and the Chocolate Fondue, as well as live music (jazz, blues, pop).
Urban Flats owner David Downs said first-timers to the restaurant are "totally amazed by what it looks like in here; it is such a different environment, like an urban New York loft."
He was quick to say that everything is made fresh daily with very reasonable prices considering the care that is taken with the ingredients and the preparation. The menu changes seasonally, with the spring menu available soon.
Downs was born in Ohio, grew up in Tampa and he and his family have lived in the Dr. Phillips area since 1988.
He was so impressed with the five-year-old Urban Flats concept (home-based in Winter Park) that he quit his insurance career to become a
part of it. This is the company's seventh location.
When asked what he would want the community to know about his restaurant, he said, "That we're here and we're open!"
Urban Flats is open at 3310
Daniels Road, and its hours are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
For more information, call 407-656-3152 or log on to urbanflats.net.

For those (including me) who cannot really afford to eat at Morton's The Steakhouse on Dr. Phillips Boulevard, here's a tip. Bar 12.21, the new bar area at Morton's, is hosting complimentary wine tastings every Tuesday from 6-7 p.m. Up to four labels of wines and champagnes presently on the Morton's outstanding wine list will be tasted in Bar 12.21, and a different wine representative will be on hand to discuss the wines with bar patrons each week.
But you must make a reservation for this popular event by calling Jenna Romanach at 407-248-3485. (Don't just show up without calling.)
In addition, Bar 12.21 's menu offers its not-expensive "Bar Bites" from 5-6:30 p.m. and again from 9:30-11 p.m. These include filet mignon sandwiches, mini cheeseburgers fried chicken strips and a crab, spinach and artichoke dip, all for $5 each.

pleasant oasis in which the faculty and staff can enjoy their lunch. It has a crisp beach d^cor of denim blue, yellow and sea foam green valances, curtains and coordinating pillows; white-washed sand dunes constructed from wood, a picket fence and imitation sea oats; and a pier with two cozy Adirondack chairs, a phone table, pier lamp and a small wooden seagull perched
on one of the ropes on a pole. Oars, life rafts and other nautical items help complete the theme.

As I See It...
A Comment & Study of the Scriptures Remembering George Gano
/ am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. John 15:1-2
After what passes for winter to us Florid-ians, and as spring is here, the rose garden is in need of care. Even though the roses are in bloom and are a delight to the owners as well as the neighbors, the gardener knows that pruning time is here. Seeing the big picture, he sets about pruning, even cutting away rosebuds in the process, in order that they can grow stronger and more productive in the new season. The .gardener knows that after he prunes the plants, adds the needed nutrients, and allows for watering, in time the roses will grow and bloom more profusely than ever. To the untrained eye, the pruning is severe, leaving only thorny stalks.
But with the gardeners efforts of love and care, the resulting garden will be a sight to behold!
This season, as 1 knelt over one of my favorite roses and carefully selected the stems to prune, God reminded me that He is constantly at work, in the lives of His children. I thought of the times when my life resembled those naked, thorny plants. Even the people around me must have wondered how much worse things could look! But as He cut away the dead wood and removed the diseased parts, my shape became more like His. Nourishment from His Word and the refreshing, water of the Spirit brought fragrance and beauty, much like the healthy leaves and blossoms that will soon cover those stems in my rose garden.

Westside Tech offers proof that The Best Is Out West'
Westside Tech held an open house recently for the public to visit the onsite training classes and to enjoy a tour of the campus. Themed around the slogan "The Best is Out West," the program displays and hands-on demonstrations were presented in the classrooms throughout the day:
The Culinary Arts students served refreshments in the school's Outback Cafe, and members of the Skills USA organization greeted visitors. ' Margaret Hester, chair for the event, laughed as she described two "personalities" who roamed the campus during the day.
She said: "Mike Clark, our database coordinator, was Mr. Career Opportunities. His outfit was decorated with implements used by the various training classes on campus. It was strange to see a man wandering around with a skeletal hand and forearm dangling from his chest. Charles Stanton, our dean of students, was dressed as Mr. Graduate 2008. He represented all of our students � adult and high school � who will graduate this year."
Addie Brann, director of the school, said: "This event was meant especially for the public. We always want the people in

Brann added: "Our open house was one of three special events this month. If you missed it, plan to visit our campus on Thursday, April
24, from 6-9 p.m. for a very special evening, 'A Celebration of Cooking, A Taste of Westside Tech.' Our Culinary Arts students will prepare and serve delicacies for tasting in our Outback Cafe on campus at 955 E. Story Road in Winter Garden. No reservations are necessary, and the tasting is free.
"Our chefs, Juan and Rick, are doing a great job prepping these student for the work force. Believe me, it will be worth a trip to the school. And please look for Westside Tech displays and personnel in the Craft Building at the Central Florida Fair."
