County says 'yes' to Gotha
daycare; residents say 'no'


Gotha residents
are suing the
county over
approval of a
40-child daycare
facility.

By Kathy Aber

Residents of the Gotha Ru-
ral Settlement were recently
dismayed when the Orange
County Board of County Com-
missioners approved a special
exception that would permit a
daycare facility for up to 40
children in a residential neigh-
borhood. By a vote of 4-3 on
April 8, the BCC overturned
the Board of Zoning Adjust-


ment's recommendation to
deny the application.
County Commissioners Fred
Brummer, Teresa Jacobs and
Tiffany Moore Russell voted
to deny the special exception
and uphold the' BZA recom-
mendation.
Hempel Avenue resident
Gene Rooks told The West Or-
ange Times Monday she and
her neighbors in the Gotha
Community Association are
not against small home-based
child care businesses.
But what they do oppose is
opening the door to any type
of commercial business in the
Gotha Rural Settlement.

corridor.

By Michael Laval

Seven people will help
shape how the Winter Garden
City Commission handles the
possible redevelopment of
West Colonial Drive as a com-
mercial corridor.
The City Commission-
ers voted unanimously at last
Thursday's meeting to appoint
members to the new West State
Road 50 Commercial Corri-
dor Review Board. The panel
will exist for a maximum of


two years and is charged with
studying possible rules for ar-
chitectural, landscaping and
signage standards along West
Colonial Drive and making
recommendations to the elect-
ed officials.
The committee will also
examine the possibility of cre-
ating a new Community Re-
development Area, acquiring
funding and gaining Brown-
field designation.
In order to create a diverse
group of board members with
different interests at stake,
membership was based on a
formula that includes city and
county business owners, city
residents and professionals.
Leonard Argentine and
Kathy Joiner were selected as
business owners along S.R. 50

Ocoee finalizes plans for drainage improvements to Pioneer Key II


By Mary Anne Swickerath

The serious drainage and
road problems in the Pioneer
Key II mobile home park will
soon be addressed with a near-
ly $1.4 million construction
project funded by an Orange
County Community Develop-
ment Block Grant.
The Ocoee City Commis-
sion, at its regular meeting last
week, approved the hiring of
Central Florida Environmen-
tal Corp. to rebuild water and
sanitary sewer lines, as well
as to construct new streets and
sidewalks and to install much-
improved stormwater man-
agement facilities.
District 3 Commissioner
Rusty Johnson, who represents
this area and has been long in-
volved in trying to address the
drainage issues, said he was
happy, to finally have these
improvements to Pioneer Key


II on the drawing board.
"The conditions there are
really bad. They should have
been fixed a long time ago,"
he told The West Orange
Times Monday.
He added that the city met
with park residents last month
to explain the project, includ-
ing the moving of the retention
pond west of the development.
He expects construction work
to begin this summer and said
he hopes enough money is left
over to add new landscaping
as park beautification.
The commission also de-
cided to not renew its 12-year
agreement with the West Or-
ange Jaycees, MADD of Cen-
tral Florida and the Boys and
Girls Clubs of Central Florida
to permit the placement of
bus benches in the city. These
groups raised funds by selling
advertising on the benches.
All' the cuk'ent benches will


be removed by Aug. 16, and
the city will begin the process
to hire a company to build en-
closed bus shelters throughout
the city.
Under an agreement with
the county, Ocoee staff will
manage the project.
In other business, the elect-
ed officials:
* approved lowering the
development review applica-
tion fee for annexations of
land parcels of one acre or
less from $500 to $250. Plan-
ning Director Russ Wagner
explained that this reduction
was at the request of the City
Commission, which asked
staff to look at reducing fees
for the annexation of single-
family lots.
* congratulated the city of
Ocoee for winning the Best
of Show award at the Central
Florida Fair for its booths ,ith
a "Let's Get Green" theme and


thanked the Ocoee Lions Club
and the Ocoee Utility Depart-
ment for their help with this
project.
* proclaimed May as Na-
tional Electrical Safety Month,
May 4-10 as Municipal Clerks
Week and May 10 as Therapy
Dog Awareness Day.
* reappointed Fay Alson and
Lester Dabbs to new terms on
the Human Relations/Diver-
sity Board.
* appointed Rosemary Wils-
en to the Community Grant
Review Board.
* appointed Jane Rainer to
the Parks and Recreation Ad-
visory Board.
* appointed Fred Wilsen to
the Citizens Advisory Council
for the Ocoee Fire Department
and the Citizens Advisory
Council for the Ocoee Police
Department.
* approved continuing con-
tracts for landscape arcl-


tectural services to Bellomo
Herbert & Co., HHI Design
and Glatting Jackson Kercher
Anglin.
* approved allocating an ad-
ditional $42,000 to the Lake-
shore Drive Phase II Improve-
ment Project to cover costs for
geotechnical testing services,
right-of-way acquisition and
design changes during con-
struction.
* awarded the engineering
contract for the relocation of
utilities due to the planned wid-
ening of West Colonial Drive
to CPH Inc. in the amount
of $356,186.62. The Florida
Department of Transportation
informed the city that utilities
(water, sewer, telephone, elec-
trical, natural gas and cable
television) will have to be
moved before FDOT begins
the widening project, whose
construction schedule has not
been announced.

Winter Garden issues new
irrigation restriction
By Michael Laval

In an effort to cope with extremely dry weather condi-
tions, the city of Winter Garden has mandated a new restric-
tion on water irrigation. Effective immediately, no irrigation
will be allowed between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. on any day of
the week.
According to Donald Cochran, assistant to the city
manager for public services, the current conditions have
resulted in increased lawn and landscape irrigation,
which has caused the city's water pumping and stor-
age facilities to work overtime to keep up with demand.

Opinion


We were the first class to spend all
three of our high school years at the
new high school building, and we were
also the beneficiaries of Title IX, so by
the time we graduated, there were girls
high school basketball and volleyball
teams for the first time competing in
the gym.
Coach of the girls basketball team,
Vicki Cornell, was also the flamboyant
student teacher for Ms. Mac's American
Literature classes. I'll never forget Vicki
striding into the classroom to teach
Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter, wearing
a bright red handmade A on her dress,
along with mounds of turquoise jewelry.
In fact, every time I now teach that novel
myself, I begin with Vicki's story.
I remember we knew we were in the
science wing when we could smell ei-
ther Fred Savage's pipe smoke or an-
other teacher's rotting limburger cheese
experiment, which burned our nostrils
for weeks.
Our AP English class filmed a mon-
tage of our readings for the year - com-
plete with scenes from Ibsen's A Doll
House to an original commercial for
D.H. Lawrence's new look for women
entitled "We Wear No Bras." This was
sung to the tune of "We Wear Short
Shorts." Surely you remember this com-
mercial that featured Julia Hardy ("La-
dies, are you tired of all that unwanted
cleavage?"), and doing a can-can in the
background were Cindy Matheison,
Kathy Munger, Dawn Crooker and me.
Not surprisingly, we're still waiting for
that one to appear on the national net-
works.


There were the intimate conversa-
tions in the soundproof practice rooms
in the bandroom hallways, munching
boxes upon boxes of fund-raiser peanut
M&Ms. And I'll never forget the day
one of our English teachers took our
senior class into the large band room to
use the sound equipment for our final
project: We were each to play for the
class the recording we'd most want to
hear on the last day of our lives. From
Joy Ragan's symphonic serenity of
"Jonathan Livingston Seagull" to my
own preference for Bob Dylan's raucous
"Like a Rolling Stone," we blasted those
walls in a way to make Harold Cooper's
ghost shudder still.
As do many high school students, I
woke up intellectually at WOHS, dis-
covering directions and potential, cour-
tesy of the encouragement and trust of
Jan Pratt, Margaret McMillen, Fred
Salvage, "Comrade" Webb and Vicki
Cornell. And it's with considerable wist-
fulness that I imagine those so-1970s
carpeted walls and dining "commons"
coming down, and those drill team flags
sewn by Kathy Matheison and Marga-
ret Harbert, a swath of white, blue and
orange memory.

Get involved, Ocoee


To the citizens of Ocoee:
The Ocoee mayor and city commissioners
have appointed community men and women to
initiate its charter review process. This process
takes place every 10 years, and its objective is
to look over the language in the city's charter
and make recommendations to the City Com-
mission for language that needs to be changed,
added and/or deleted.
Your participation in this process will provide
valuable input to the Charter Review Commis-
sion and will help shape the commission's re-
view of the city charter.
A city charter is a document outlining the
principles, functions and organization of a
government body; it's, in effect, a city's con-.
stitution.
To view the current city charter, please visit
www.ci.ocoee.fl.us or request a copy by calling
the Ocoee City Clerk's Office at 407-905-3100,
Ext. 9-1023.


The Charter Review Commission will meet at
6:30 p.m. in the Commission Chambers located
at 150 N. Lakeshore Drive on May 14 and 28
and June 11 and 25. All members are open to
the public.
Make your voice count; participate in the
charter review process.
Did you know? Ocoee's current population is
35,000. The population in 1998 was 21,653. The
number of registered voters as of April 2008
was 15,937, and the percentage that actually
voted in the 2007 city election was 15 percent
(2,276 of 15,096).

Green Earth Expo arrives at convention center


The world's largest green
trade show arrives Thursday,
May 15, at the Orange County
Convention Center and lasts
through this Sunday, May 18.
Green Earth Expo 2008
will be the largest sustainable
commerce and lifestyle trade
show in the world, accord-
ing to Global Green Alliance,
the Altamont Springs-based
organization presenting the
first-time event. An estimated
50,000-plus people will attend
the four-day expo.
More than 300 green and
sustainable energy corporations
and non-profits will be on hand
to showcase their green initia-
tives to other businesses and
consumers. Green Earth Expo
2008 will feature major auto-
makers, alternative energy pro-
viders, green construction fab-
ricators and contractors, green
service providers, energy effi-
cient appliance manufacturers,
as well as health and wellness
groups and organic retailers.
Guest speakers will include
top-level government officials,
green business leaders and en-
vironmental experts.
"We think it is important for
businesses and consumers alike
to know what green products
and services are available,"
said Jim Griffin, founder and
president of Global Green Al-
liance. "We want people to
understand that 'going green'
does not mean sacrificing your

money. It means that you care
about your environment and
you are making efforts to pre-
serve it."
Green Earth Expo is set to
become a local fixture, having
already booked the Orange
County Convention Center
for the next 10 years. The con-
vention center itself has gone
green by implementing a major
solar energy project to power
the facility and earning federal
certification for environmental
management due to its success-
ful recycling program.
The expo will kick off
Thursday with a green busi-


ness symposium for businesses
and organizations to network
and collaborate on new green
projects and emerging tech-
nologies. The general public
will be welcomed beginning
Friday, May 16, as exhibitors
will showcase their green ini-
tiatives to consumer, business
and government attendees.
Families are encouraged to
visit the expo's Eco-Kid's Cor-
ner with educational activities
and entertainment for children
and adults. Also, top designers
will host an eco-fashion show
on Saturday, May 17.
"Green should not be exclu-


sive," Jim Griffin. "Reducing
our carbon footprint, protecting
our resources and bettering our
individual health should be a
natural goal of any organization
or person.
"We feel it is our mission to
promote green commerce to
encourage its growth amongst
the business community," Grif-
fin added. "We want to educate
the public about the quality and
affordability of green products
and services that are available
to them to further incorporate
green into their lives."

Water directors meet with local farm leaders


Members of the board of di-
rectors for the Orange, Semi-
nole, Brevard and Osceola
county Farm Bureaus met on
Tuesday evening with Kirby
Green, executive director of the
St. Johns River Water Manage-
ment District, and Carol Wehle,
executive director of the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict.
The meeting of 40 Farm Bu-
reau leaders allowed Green and
Wehle to address issues they
thought would be of most con-
cern to the agriculture industry
and gave the farmers and ranch-
ers the opportunity to question
the water district leaders. Bobby
Beagles, president of the Orange
County Farm Bureau, served as
host, moderator and chef.
"This was an excellent meet-
ing that accomplished our goal
of better interaction and com-
munications between the agri-


cultural community and Water
Management officials," said
Beagles.
Green and Wehle talked about
programs that will offer finan-
cial incentives for landowners
to hold and store water on their
lands through conservation
or flowage easements. They
discussed Best Management
Programs that are being imple-
mented on agricultural lands and
the improvements being seen as
a result. The districts realize that
agricultural lands provide much
of the wildlife habitat, open
space and aquifer recharge that
are enjoyed by all residents, ac-
cording to Green and Wehle.
In most cases, where land is
purchased for preservation or
retention of water, the land is
leased for agricultural use un-
til it is needed for its ultimate
purpose, saving the district on
management costs and bringing

Solar City grant to power
local energy infrastructure


The city of Orlando, in con-
junction with Orange County
Government and Orlando
Utilities Commission (OUC),
has been selected as one of 12
Solar American Cities by the
U.S. Department of Energy
(DOE) and will receive a grant
of $200,000 for two years to
increase the use of solar tech-
nology and renewable energy.
The city will partner with
Orange County and OUC to
develop a strategic energy plan
with a focus on sustainable ur-
ban growth. A goal has been set
to install 15 megawatts of solar
by 2015 and transform metro
Orlando into the Silicon Valley
of the Southeast.
The strategic energy plan
will include a Web-based so-
lar resource mapping tool and
analysis to identify the region's
solar opportunities. This will be
followed by a series of collab-
orative sessions with key com-
munity leaders to develop a list
of solar policies and priorities
designed to meet aggressive
solar installation goals.


The sessions are expected to
feature experts who will pro-
vide insight into integrating
solar technologies into multi-
family housing, new residential
buildings and public buildings.
The project will also include
development and implemen-
tation of solar education pro-
grams targeting groups who
are integral to the successful
development of a sustainable
solar technology base in metro
Orlando.
The final outcome of the
project will be a master solar
plan that will lay the founda-
tion for a viable solar market
and provide a model of sustain-
ability for other communities
throughout Florida.
In addition to funding, the
DOE will provide technical
assistance to help integrate
solar technologies into energy
planning, zoning and facilities,
present solar financing options
and streamline local regula-
tions and practices that affect
solar adoption by residents and
businesses.


County offering rebates
for solar water heaters


Orange County government
has presented a new way for
residents to go green and save
money. Mayor Richard Crotty
unveiled a new solar incentive
program to the Board of County
Commissioners last month.
The first of its kind in Cen-
tral Florida, the incentive pack-
age will allow residential and
commercial properties to take
advantage of $200 rebates
to install a solar water heater
system. The program was de-
veloped through a partnership
with Progress Energy, Orange


County's Environmental Pro-
tection Division and Orlando
Utilities Commission.
One of the many benefits of
the new solar incentive pro-
gram, Crotty said, is to encour-
age more use of solar power in
the community and allow sup-
porters to purchase local green
power.
Only new systems installed
after April 22 are eligible for
the rebate. For a full list of re-
quirements or to download a
rebate application form, visit
www.OrangeCountyFl.net.

Avecilla earns top award for painting
Lakeview Middle School student Alexa Avecilla was
awarded a 1st-place ribbon by volunteers and staff of
the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation for her painting
of the Heritage Museum in the annual Winter Garden
history project. Award-winning multi-media projects from
approximately 50 Lakeview 6th-graders were displayed
in the Edgewater Hotel lobby from April 28 through May
9. The collaborative program between Lakeview and the
Heritage Foundation began 6 years ago with an idea from
teacher Mimi Forness. It begins with classroom lessons
about Winter Garden's history and a historic downtown
scavenger hunt. Then students choose local history topics
and complete multi-media projects. 'Every year the projects
get better and better,' said WGHF Education Coordinator
Kay Cappleman. 'It's become a tradition at Lakeview and
a favorite program of the Heritage Foundation.'

WOJSL hosts Junior Service League Convention


The West Orange Jr. Service
League recently hosted the
annual Junior Service League
Convention. The theme was
"The Marriage of Service
and Social," and more than
70 women attended from five
Jr. Service League chapters
around the state.
WOJSL President Beth
Wincey said the theme came
to her as she compared com-
munity service organizations
to a marriage.
She said: "The combination
of service and social is depicted
by two entities coming togeth-
er in harmony. It is hard work,
it's full of passion, has sustain-
ability in unity and can bring
new things into the world. And,
honestly, who doesn't love a
good wedding?"
A big thank-you goes to all
the WOJSL members who
shared the workload for the
event. A special thank-you "
also goes to the community
partners who contributed: ABC

Super Markets, Mimi's Caf6, Kathe(

ers enjoyed a showing of the 'Tales of Winter Garden' at the Garden Theater, a
g tour and a scavenger hunt before moving on later to Health Central for the Presi-
Luncheon.


After the Chain of Lakes tour, the WOJSL Sustainer Class
treated the convention attendees to a brunch served at
the lakeside cabin of Bert and Barbara Roper. Pictured is
Lori Gibson (left), sustainer and event coordinator, with
Maryke Lee, who has been in the league 25 years and will
be recognized as an honored member at the upcoming
May dinner.


The WOJSL showed off the natural beauty of West Orange
County by including a Butler Chain of Lakes tour during
the convention. A big thank-you goes to the owners and
drivers of donated boats who helped make this event a
success. Pictured is Brenda Smith, sharing stories of the
lakes and driving a boat donated by her brother, Jim Ross.
Other boats were donated by Richard Irwin, Dale Stafford,
Dwayne Thrift, Chris Lee, Scott Boyd and Mark and Lori
Gibson.


President Beth Wincey (right) presents WOJSL Honored
Member Barbara Roper with a gift of gratitude for the use
of her family's lakeside cabin during the convention. The
cabin reflects the grace and charm the league wanted to
portray as it ends the year of service which was based on
going 'Back to Our Roots.'

Free health screenings at Ocoee Walgreens


By Victoria Laney
Free health screenings will
be offered at the Ocoee Wal-
greens this Saturday, May
17, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
No appointment is necessary.
Screenings include cholesterol,
glucose, bone density, blood
pressure, waist circumference
and body mass index. These
screenings are worth more
than $115, according to Wal-
greens spokesperson Michael
Polzin.
Each participant will also
receive a bag of product sam-
ples, high-value coupons and
educational materials. The
screenings are being given in
a customized vehicle that is
touring West Orange as part


of a national tour.
"With the Take Care Health
Tour, people across the coun-
try will have the opportunity to
receive these important, life-
saving screenings no matter
what their income level. You
can't put a price on wellness,
so 'free' sounded pretty good
to us," said Walgreens Presi-
dent Gregory D. Wasson.
"There are 20.8 million
people in the United State
who have diabetes, and one-
third of those are unaware that
they have the disease," Polzin
said. "By measuring the glu-
cose level through a quick and
simple test, we can identify
those who may be at risk."
High blood pressure af-
fects one in three American


adults. High blood pressure
increases the risk for heart dis-
ease and stroke, which is the
leading cause of death in the
U.S. Among people with high
blood pressure, 70 percent do
not have their condition under
control, he added.
Participants will be given
written test results and en-
couraged to see their doctors
regarding any concerns.
Sponsors of the tour include
LifeScan Inc. (One Touch),
Johnson and Johnson (Tyle-
nol), GlaxoSmithKline (Nicor-
ette and Alli) and Proctor and
Gamble (Actonel).

Former students share thoughts


on working at their alma mater


By Amy Quesinberry
WOHS Class of 1985

Some members of the West
Orange High staff must have
had that feeling of dd6j vu on
their first day at work. They are
part of a unique clique 0 they
were once students at the high
school.
Who is heading the class-
rooms and running the of-
fices?
* Tammi Lewis Thompson,
Class of 1978's Homecom-
ing queen, now an attendance
clerk.
* Neddie Woods Watkins,
Class of 1980, cafeteria man-
ager.
* Lisa Clyatt Fleming, Class
of 1983, language arts teach-
er.
* Aaron Shaw, Class of 1988,
social studies teacher; head ju-
nior varsity football and girls
soccer coach and head boys
and assistant girls track coach;
and assistant Student Council
representative.
* Nykowanna "Nikki" Harris
Sloan, Class of 1989, dean.
* Andrew Jackson, Class of
1990, assistant principal.
* Murray Sawyer, Class of
1993, assistant principal.
* Anna Iris Gonzalez Velez,
Class of 1993, front office clerk
at the Ninth-Grade. Center.
* Jennifer Downs, Class of
1995, science teacher.
* William Baker, Class of
1996, social studies teacher and
head coach for boys lacrosse.
* Jennifer Varhol, Class.of


1996, language arts teacher.
* Toby Hurst, Class of 1998,
social studies teacher.
* Michael Rummel, Class of
1999, physical education teach-
er and football and weightlift-
ing coach.
* Jessica Reanne Young,
Class of 1999, reading teach-
er.
* Robert Brannan, social
studies teacher.
Many of them spoke to The
West Orange Times last week,
sharing their feelings on the de-
molition of their alma mater. In
general, they all said this: "It's
sad, but..."
They all agreed with Varhol
that "while the old buildings
hold plenty of memories, they
also hold plenty of mold."
Velez said she felt like she
was "in a cave - cold, dark
and gloomy."
The change is well overdue,
Rummel said.
"I was never a fan of the
school building," Baker ad-
mitted. "The structural design,
the cubicle-like classrooms, no
natural light and the carpet ev-
erywhere!"
And while Fleming remem-
bers thinking the original facil-
ity was "very unusual looking
and ugly," she said she will miss
"those familiar round buildings
on Beulah Road."
What fond memories will
they keep long after the circular
walls are gone?
Varhol: "While I have many
incredible memories of my
time as a student here, these


memories were because of the
incredible faculty, staff and my
classmates. Although, launch-
ing eggs off of the roof in Mr.
Feldman's physics class will
always be a fond memory."
Watkins: "I started my cook-
ing career here with Ms. Nancy
Lockwood in Home Ec., and I
also found my real love here
at West Orange. I married my
high school sweetheart, and
we have two beautiful young
adults and one grandson."
Fleming: "Some things that
stand out in my mind: trip-
ping on the carpet as a lowly
sophomore, the painted bridge,
'smoking' and 'dipping' areas
(unheard of today), Mr. Coo-
per's fabulous band, only three
AP classes offered, WOPS TV
and the 'Most Likely to Re-
main in West Orange County'
award. It's a pleasure to work
with some of my former teach-
ers as colleagues, but it feels a
little odd to call them by their
first names!"
Shaw: "I remember being
a new student at WO and try-
igg desperately to find classes
while walking around and
around and..."
I Sawyer: "As a student, I have
very vivid and powerful mem-
ories associated with playing
football and interactions with
specific teachers (good and
not-so-good). As a teacher/ad-
ministrator, the best memories
are those days when you look
a student in the face and, at that
very moment, you can literally
see that you have made a dif-


ference in his/her life."
Rummel: "I think it is great
working with teachers and
coaches that were here when I
was a student. It is also very re-
warding to watch students who
have graduated and either went
on to college or the workforce
and knowing somewhere along
the line that you had an impact
and made a difference in their
lives."
The move to the new build-
ings is exciting to these West
Orange Warriors. They agreed
it will be nice having everyone
on the same campus instead of
being split between the main
campus and the Ninth-Grade
Center.
All were in agreement that the
technology at the new school is
going to be one of the biggest
assets to both students and fac-
ulty. Sawyer said the building
layout will also improve the
educational environment.
"We're making a great thing
even better," Varhol said.
And while Shaw agrees that
the technology will be one of
the greatest assets at the new
.building, he's just excited to fi-
nally have a door on his class-
room.
Sawyer probably summed
up everyone's sentiments
best: "Although I have a lot
of memories associated with
the old building, the building
is not what makes West Or-
ange High School so great. It
is the students, parents, faculty,
staff, administration and com-
munity."


WOHS


Lakeview and Ocoee. Rivals
would become classmates in
January 1976 when West Or-
ange opened.
"We went from two commu-
nity schools to this large metro-
politan school," Whiddon said.
"It was the integration of two
big rival schools, and it was fun
to be rivals. It took a couple of
years for those feelings to go
away."
Whiddon saved an essay
written by guidance coun-
selor Ellen Harmeling, who
explained how teachers were
divided among the two junior
highs and the new high school.
She said the faculties at Lakev-
iew and Ocoee were asked to
indicate their preference, "and
then the three principals and
their assistants [held] an of-
ficial meeting, described by
[administrator] Ola Evans as a
horse-trading session: 'If you
get A then I get B; if I have to
take C then yqu have to take
D.' I"
Whiddon remembers Army
recruiter trucks transporting the
decades of guidance records
from Lakeview and Ocoee
and the old Drew High School
(which closed in 1969).
Said Annis: "In business, we
only moved the books because
we had all new equipment. I
also moved my stool."
State-of-the-art in the busi-
ness department back then, she
said, was electric typewriters.
Whiddon can remember
when the guidance department
had one computer - total -
and student transcripts were
created by hand and grade-
point averages were figured
with calculators. One guidance
office was rented to Florida's
Department of Health and Re-
habilitative Services in 1976.
Lester Dabbs served as West
Orange's first principal. When
he left, Raymond Screws took
the position, but his role in
leading WO students was short-
lived.
Annis and Whiddon were
both at school when Principal
Screws was shot and killed by
a disgruntled assistant princi-
pal, Roosevelt Holloman, in
December 1977. A pregnant
Whiddon was in her office and
heard loud pops in the hallway.
Because that administration
had a habit of pulling practical
jokes, she said, it never entered
her mind that the gunshots were
real, even when Assistant Prin-
cipal Tony Krapf came running
through the office "white as a
sheet" and yelling at everyone
to run.
"I stood there, and Holloman
came face to face with me and
said, 'I won't hurt you.'"
Annis recalled Krapf ran out
a back door and, using a master
set of keys, re-entered the busi-
,ness department- announcing
the principal had been shot. She
also thought Krapf was kidding
around.
In the following days, carpet
was replaced, bullet holes were
repaired and all the solid doors
in the office and guidance de-
partment were replaced with
ones with windows.


(Continued from 1A)


"We've weathered a lot of
things over the years - losses,
tragedies," Whiddon said. "But
it has made us all closer."
Annis agreed that the faculty
has grown to be "a real family
unit."
As West Orange County
changed through the decades,
the enrollment has fluctuated.
West Orange was built with a
capacity of 1,700 students but
opened with about 1,200. That
number climbed to 4,300 before
relief high schools Dr. Phillips
and Olympia were built. A wing
and portables were added too.
When Ocoee High opened in
2005, it brought West Orange
back down to 2,400 students.
And with this change, some-
thing else has been brought
back: the friendly rivalry be-
tween two high schools in Win-
ter Garden and Ocoee.
"I think we're back to a
neighborhood school again,
because the students are mostly
from Winter Garden," Whid-
don said.
How are today's students
different from those of the
1970s?
Annis said they are more ca-
sual in their dress and rougher
in their language and they are
more vocal and inquisitive.
Said Whiddon: "Technology
is the biggest thing now - cell
phones, iPods. Students used
to come to school, and they
were yours for the day. Now
their parents can text them in
class."
Technology is certain to play
a huge role when students at-
tend school in the new build-
ings in the fall.
The new West Orange is be-
ing built in the former parking
lots. When the current buildings
are demolished in the second
phase, that land will be used for
parking and retention ponds.
"I always said I'd be here till
these walls come down," said
Whiddon, "and, dadgum, here
I am."
Annis, a longtime Winter
Garden resident, is retiring at
the end of the school year, so
she will not teach at the new
school, but she is excited for
the students to have a positive
learning environment and the
faculty to have teaching facili-
ties with the newest technol-
ogy.
Whiddon, of Ocoee, is look-
ing forward to having win-
dows.
"I've been a cave dweller for
30-something years now," she
said with a laugh.
"It's time to move on. The
kids deserve better. It'll be nice
to have a school that looks like
a school instead of a sewage-
treatment plant."
But, she said, the move is
bittersweet.
"I love the new school, but
I'll shed a tear when the old one
comes down."


SunBlox to exhibit at Green Earth Expo


Simon Fairbrother and
Keith Freeman of SunBlox in
Ocoee will exhibit their high-
tech window sunscreens this
weekend at the Green Earth
Expo 2008 at the Orange
County Convention Center,
among more than 300 other
vendors.
SunBlox fabricates and sells
vinyl-coated screens that are
custom designed and fitted to


cover windows. The screens
block sunlight before it hits the
window and enters the home
or building, thus cutting down
on electric cooling bills.
Online tickets are available
for this Friday, Saturday and
Sunday for $7, or you can
purchase a ticket at the event.

REAL

ESTATE

Native

WORD WISE
The technical terms that real estate
professionals use can be confusing to
buyers and sellers who aren't experi-
enced in the field. If you find yourself
confused and a bit frustrated when
your realtor starts talking about escrow,
clear title, easements, encroachments,
contingencies, financing, appraisals
and the settlement process, don't hesi-
tate to ask for a translation!
Buying or selling a home is a major
step. and professional realtors are
totally committed to helping you under-
stand the process thoroughly so that
you can make informed decisions. The
simple transaction of trading the sell-
ers' house for the buyers' money has
become complicated by several hun-
dred years of custom, common law. as
well as state and local government
requirements.
Consumers have increasingly
demanded that communications with
real estate professionals be as clear
and understandable as possible.
Realtors work to create an atmosphere
in which you feel comfortable to ask
questions. If there is ., 1,1,, r', - that
is not clear to you, the only stupid
question is the one that isn't asked.
If you would like to talk further about
buying or selling real estate, please
contact Libby Tomyn CRS at Century
21 Professional Group. Call me on my
personal message line. 321-293-2160.

Gotha
intrusion into our residential
community," said Rooks.
Last week, Kurt Ardaman
and Daniel Langley, attorneys
with the firm Fishback Domin-
ick, filed a writ of certiorari,
along with a lawsuit against
Orange County, challenging
its recent approval of Sheki-
nah Christian Home Day Care
at 1476 Hempel Ave.
In this suit, Ardaman said
his firm represents more than
60 homeowners, as well as
the Gotha Community Asso-
ciation, which has more than
100 members.
Fernanda Curione, the own-
er of the Hempel Avenue prop-
erty, asked the Orange County
Board of Zoning Adjustment
for a special exception in order
to operate a daycare with up to
40 children.
Ardaman told the Times the
Gotha neighbors did not object
to Curione's childcare busi-
ness when she was running a
small daycare with less than
10 children.
But when the daycare ex-
panded, serving approxi-


mately 25-30, the Florida
Department of Children and
Families closed the facility,
forcing Curione to apply for a
special exception to continue
her business.
The BZA staff recommend-
ed denial of the special excep-
tion, saying it did not conform
with the Comprehensive Plan
and the criteria for the Gotha
Rural Settlement.
When the BZA held a public
hearing to vote on the special
exception, the zoning board
also denied it despite testi-
mony from numerous parents
who spoke about the benefits
of the daycare facility.
Next, Curione appealed the
BZA verdict to the BCC and
finally got approval for 'the
special exception.
The Times was unable to
reach Curione for comment
this week.
District 1 Commissioner
Teresa Jacobs, who represents
the Gotha area, voted against
the special exception.
Lynette Reynolds, aide to
Commissioner Jacobs, told


Beautification


within the city limits, while
Todd Paquette was chosen
as a S.R. 50 business owner
in unincorporated Orange
County. Board member
George Spigener qualified as
an owner of vacant or soon-
to-be-redeveloped property on
West Colonial Drive. Mildred
Holt-Washington and Dr. John
Cappleman were both named
as city residents who do not
own a business on S.R. 50.
The commissioners chose John
Rinehart as an urban planner or
similar professional.
"We have mnot established
when the first meeting will take
place," City Manager Michael
Bollhoefer said. "How the city
moves forward is dependent
upon the board's recommen-
dations and the commission's
desire of what to do based on
those recommendations."
The review board's meet-
ings, he added, will all be open
to the public.
In 2003, Winter Garden es-
tablished the Commercial Cor-
ridor for West Colonial Drive
with the purpose of providing


standards for buildings, land-
scaping, signs and other items
to ensure that development
and redevelopment along the
highway would be done in an
aesthetically appealing man-
ner.
"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,"
Bollhoefer explained while
proposing the new board at the
April 24 commission meeting.
"Although the ordinance creat-
ing the corridor was well-in-
tentioned, staff has determined
that changes could be made to
improve the ordinance."
The review board will also
have two non-voting members
- the city planning director
and economic development di-
rector or his or her designees.
In other business, the elected
officials:
* approved the site plan for
Beulah Boat and Recreational
Vehicle Storage, planned for
the southeast comer of Stagg
and Beulah roads.


- (Continued from 1A)

the Times the commissioner
had voted against the special
exception because it is incom-
patible with the surrounding
residential uses.
Reynolds said the applicant
was well represented at the
hearing and commissioners
voting for the special excep-
tion could have been swayed
by the emotional testimony
given by parents who use the
daycare. They said there is a
shortage of quality childcare
in the area.
In approving the special ex-
ception, BCC did impose some
conditions, including a mini-
mum of seven paved parking
spaces in front of the residence
and a staff of five employees.
To date, Curione has not be-
gun any renovations.
Ardaman said the Board of
County Commissioners "de-
parted from the law" in ap-
proving the special exception
and that the application and
its subsequent approval are
not consistent with the Comp
Plan or the Gotha Rural Settle-
ment.

(Continued from 1A)

* approved the first reading
of a proposed ordinance to
update the City Code to make
it consistent with state law in
regard to decisions by the City
Commission on appeals from
the Planning and Zoning Board
on quasi-judicial matters. The
ordinance could be passed at a
second public hearing sched-
ule for June 12.
* approved a proposed or-
dinance to amend regulations
for subdivision declarations
of covenants, conditions and
restrictions to require that-
statements be provided to the
city citing the responsibility
of the homeowners associa-
tion to collect funds to operate
and maintain common prop-
erties and make subdivision
improvements; provide the
city access rights over private
subdivision roads and alleys;
and prohibit the alteration
of subdivision drainage and
stormwater systems without
prior city consent.
A second public hearing is
scheduled for the June 12 com-
mission meeting.


Irrigation (Continued from 1A)


"By adjusting the hours for ir-
rigation, we will balance the de-
mand on our water storage and
pumping facilities," Cochran
said. "If water storage tank lev-
els reach a critical point, it may
be necessary to reduce the water
flow to irrigation systems.-
"In this event, irrigation water
service may be temporarily inter-
rupted," he added.
The hours between 6 a.m. and
6 p.m., Cochran explained, are
peak hours for both commercial
businesses and home water use.
The city is requesting that citizens


make sure home irrigation sys-
tems are set for the proper time of
day and length of time. Anyone
planning on installing new sod is
advised to postpone work until af-
ter the drought conditions have
subsided.
"With your help we can contin-
ue providing quality water service
and fire protections to our citizens
and eliminate the need for more
stringent water conservation mea-
sures," Cochran said.

For cancer patients, the dis-
tance between them and their
treatment facility can often hold
them back from lifesaving treat-
ments. The American Cancer
Society's Road to Recovery
program eliminates that barrier
by providing free transportation
for patients to and from medical
facilities.
Road to Recovery is in need of
volunteer drivers, particularly in
Winter Garden, Ocoee, Apopka,
southeast Orlando and south Or-
lando. Spanish-bilingual drivers
are also in demand.
The volunteer driving requires
no special skills or education -
just a safe driving record and a
valid driver's license, a vehicle
in good working condition, free
time and a desire to help.


Cancer patients with transporta-
tion needs can call 800-227-9954
to arrange a ride. For information,
call 407-843-8680, Ext. 2517, or
e-mail Dorothy.Hardee@cancer.

A homeowner plant clinic is
held every Tuesday from 9 a.m.
to noon at the UF Research and

Road, north of Magnolia Park.
Master gardeners from the Or-
ange County Cooperative Ex-
tension Service will address
lawn and shrubbery problems
and conduct soil pH testing.

Olympia volleyball is state runner-up


Photo by Michael Laval


The Titan varsity boys vol-
leyball team capped a phenom-
enal season by finishing sec-
ond in the state championship
finals last weekend in Coral
Springs.
Olympia opened last Friday
by defeating Miami Columbus
25-22, 25-20, 24-26, 20-25,
16-14. Ian Karbiener, Travis
Helton and Arthur Richards
stood out as top performers for
the Titans.
The state semifinal match
came Saturday morning, with
Olympia shocking two-time
defending state champ Boca
Raton Spanish River. After
winning the first two games
and dropping the third, Olym-
pia bounced back with one of
the most exciting games of the
entire tournament, according to


OHS Coach Troy Helton.
In the fourth game, which
lasted more than an hour, the
Titans showed great heart by
outlasting Spanish River 31-29.
Gradon Willard and Paul Wise
led Olympia's effort to advance
to the state finals.
Less than two hours later,
an exhausted Olympia team
returned for the championship
match in a toasty gym without
air conditioning. After winning
the first game against South-
west Miami 25-23, the Titans
fell into a 2-1 hole. In the fourth
game, Southwest surged ahead
by six points and seemed poised
to clinch the victory, but Olym-
pia continued to fight and took
the game 26-24.
In the final and deciding
game, though, the Titans fell


behind and could not regain
momentum, losing 15-12.
Coach Helton pointed to Kar-
biener, Jason Stewart, Wise and
Helton as standout performers
in the finals.
"I am extremely proud of
how these young men played
this year," said Coach Helton.
"Anyone who was there got to
see a team that refused to lose
and left everything they had on
the court.
"The coaching staff and I
could not have been happier
with how our boys played or
handled themselves on and
off the court during this tour-
nament," he added. "These
boys are the epitome of what
student-athletes should be, and
they represent our school with
the utmost class."


West Orange High's Nolan Fontana (No. 4) is greeted at home plate by his jubilant team-
mates after crushing a home run in the Warriors' 6-1 victory over Lakeland in Game 2 of
the best-of-3 regional championship at WOHS last Friday night.

Warriors fall in regional championship series


West Orange High's best-
ever baseball season came to
an end with last weekend's
three-game-series loss to
Lakeland in the regional fi-
nals.
The Warriors hosted a
Friday night doubleheader,
which the teams split, and the
deciding game on Saturday.
The district champion and
regional runner-up Warriors
finished the season with a
28-5 record through the state
playoffs.
Lakeland stunned West Or-
ange early in Friday's opening
game by touching Warrior ace
Blake Dieterich for nine runs
on nine hits through five and


one-third innings. The Dread-'
naughts smacked five home
runs in the 11-3 win.
"Even being down 8-0 in
the second inning, the kids
showed a lot of heart and
fought until the end," re-
called WOHS Head Coach
Jesse Marlo.
The Warriors bounced back
in the second game with a he-
roic pitching effort from Ma-
son Williams, who allowed
only one run on three hits with
six strikeouts en route to a 6-1
West Orange victory. Nolan
Fontana sparked the Game 2
comeback with a 2-run home
run in the first inning.
In Saturday's finale, Lake-


land jumped out to a 6-0 lead
in the first inning and never
looked back, rolling to a 13-4
win. Fontana crushed another
home run and finished with
2 RBIs. West Orange cut
Lakeland's lead to 9-4 by the
fifth inning, but the eventual
champs responded with more
late-inning runs.

Art field trip
Fifty-two Olympia High art
students recently visited the
Cornell Museum of Fine Art on
the Rollins College campus.
They saw the exhibit, "Corps
Exquis," which features the hu-
man form by such artists as Wil-


liam Blake, Pablo Picasso and
Ben Shahn.
The students also saw an ex-
hibit called "The Joy of Paint-
ing," which featured artwork
from the 1990s by Japanese art-
ists. The students had already
studied Japanese art and its
impact on the Impressionist art-
ist of the mid 19th century after
Japanese ports were opened to
world trade in 1854.Vincent Van
Gogh and Henri Toulouse Lau-
trec were especially enamored
by Japanese prints.
Students used sumi-e sets
to produce several artworks in-
spired by Japanese art, includ-
ing a traditional flower-and-bird
painting, story illustrations and
cartoons.
A lunch of creative sushi rolls,
supplemented by Pizza Hut, was
provided to the students by the
owners of Fuji Sushi. Many stu-
dents who had never tried sushi
were pleasantly surprised.
The art project was funded by
grants from Darden Restau-
rants and Target.

If you type the words "self help" into the
computer search engine, Google, you will get
332 million research options...try it! You can
find self-help books on almost anything...from
"how to forget" to "how to remember"... from
"how to be gentle" to "how to be aggressive."
You can even find self-help books on how to
have eternal life. This is where things get
sticky.
God's Word says in Ephesians 2:1-9 that ev-
ery person is born dead spiritually (vs. 1, "...
you were dead in your trespasses and sins");
therefore you have no capacity to achieve eter-
nal life by changing your attitudes or behavior.
In fact, as you read the passage, Paul, the God-
inspired author of this letter, explains that being
dead is actually directly related to the self-help
mentality. Ephesians 2:3 says, "...we too all...
lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the de-
sires of the flesh and of the mind..." He is ex-
plaining that being "dead in... trespasses and
sins" is making decisions based on your own
desires and abilities...HELPing yourSELF in
this world.

The antithesis to self-help is then found in
the first two words of verse 4, which I consider
to be two of the most powerful words in all of
Scripture..."But God". In our English transla-
tions verses 1-6 are broken into multiple sen-
tences, but in the Greek, they are all a part of
one sentence with verses two and three being
explanatory clauses. If you take these clauses
out, this is what you read, "And you were dead
in your trespasses and sins,... BUT GOD, being
rich in mercy, because of His great love with
which He loved us, even when we were dead in
our transgressions, made us alive together with
Christ Jesus (by grace you have been saved),
and raised us up with Him and seated us with
Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus..."
When you finish the thought through verse
nine, as I see it, eternal life - spiritual resurrec-
tion - is not achieved by man helping himself,
rather it is granted by the Creator of Life, God
Himself.

'A Taste of Westside' passes the taste test


By Edith Mosley

'Who carved that fish? Did
you taste this? Don't' forget
the cherry tarts." Comments
flew as visitors passed from
station to station to sample
the treats prepared and served
by students in Westside Tech's
Culinary Arts Department on a
recent Thursday.
In an event open to the pub-
lic, students at action stations
served tastes of such delicacies
as Thai Chicken Saut6, French
Herb and Savory Crepes filled
with smoked salmon and crab
meat, Italian Cheese Tortellini,
New Orleans Sausage, Rice
and Peppers and American
Burgundy Beef with Mush-
rooms.
The fish, an ice carving by
Chef Juan Alamo, proudly
guarded spring rolls made of
rice paper and stuffed with
baby mixed greens and shred-
ded pork. Sauces offered in-
cluded Mornay, hot and spicy
and peanut. Petit fours and tarts
rounded out the menu.
Alamo explained the five
stations: "In hotel functions
and at catered events, action
stations are preferred over
buffet lines. Service is quick-
er, and for that second helping,
guests just visit the station of
their choice. There's no need
for butting in. If a room's lay-
out makes a buffet the best
idea, the line can be broken
into stations by centerpieces or
just by separating the tables a


Assisting the students in presenting 'A Taste of Westside' to the public are (1-r): (back)
Chef Richard Barth, dean of Orlando Culinary Academy; Chef Louis Reyes, Sysco Com-
pany; Chef Bruno Fonseca of TECO Culinary; and (front) Chefs Rick Petrello and Juan
Alamo, Westside Tech.


little. Guests served quickly are
happy, and that makes a happy
management."
And serve the food quickly
is just what the friendly stu-
dent chefs did. Accustomed to
preparing and serving lunches
daily for long lines of Westside
students, they eased into work-
ing with only two servers per
table, taking turns as teams.,
Shaking hands steadied as
guests tasted and nodded ap-


proval.
Chef Rick Petrello grinned
as he said: "It was kinda scary,
not having a bunch of their fel-
low students lined up next to
them, serving. But once they
relaxed, they got into preparing
meats and sauces right at the
station. It gave them a chance
to practice short demonstra-
tions and portion control at this
'have-a-taste' event. Our visi-
tors complimented the whole


show. The students did a fine
job. And we really thank Sy-
sco, our industry partner, for
donating the supplies needed
to host this event."
Westside Tech will offer
a cooking class for middle
school youngsters for the
summer session at its campus
at 955 E. Story Road in Winter
Garden.
Call 407-905-2052 for more
information.


Jessica Arvizu and Philip Rizo, Westside Tech high school Standing before a now-empty spring roll station, Geromy
students, served smoked salmon and crab meat nestled and Dayna Rivera seem to be saying, 'Ah, that was worth
in herb and savory crepes topped by a Mornay sauce at coming for.' They accompanied their mother, Maria Rolon,
Westside's taste-testing event, to the Westside Tech event.

Students can earn a credit
by having summer job
West Orange High students
can earn a credit toward gradu-
ation by having a job this sum-
mer. The school is hosting local
businesses on campus Satur-
day, May 31, in the cafe on the
East Campus to help students
find a job this summer.
Businesses will bring applica-
tions and information about the
jobs and perhaps some give-
aways. Students should be pre-
pared to interview for a job that
day if a match is made.
Those needing an extra
school credit to graduate next
year or have transportation and
just want to work this summer
should plan to attend. Local
businesses that employ teens
(ages 15-17) are encouraged
to contact Murray Sawyer, as-
sistant Principal, at sawyem@
ocps.net. to participate.

OCPS recognizes
Each year Orange County Pub-

businesses and six volunteer co-
ordinators. The event was held in
the Nautilus Theater at SeaWorld
Orlando.
Currently there are approxi-
mately 45,500 registered ADDi-
tions school volunteers and 2,700
business partnerships whose com-

Past yearbooks available
The West Orange High pub-
lications department is selling
extra copies of the school year-
book, the Sword and Scab-
bard, from previous years for
$40 each. Copies of the current
2008 yearbook are also on sale
for $90.
Yearbooks are available for
the class years of 1988, 1996,
2000 through 2005 and 2007.
"We need to streamline oui
archives in preparation for the
move into the new school," said
Kimberly Poor, publications ad-
visor. "These books are extras
or unclaimed copies. Hopefully
someone who missed getting
a yearbook then can have one
now."
Anyone interested in pur-
chasing a book should contact
Poor at 407-905-2400, Ext.
