Armed robbery
On Wednesday, July 9, at ap-
proximately 5:15 p.m., Ocoee
police responded to 1850 Ra-
chel's Ridge Loop in reference
to an armed robbery of a Pizza
Hut delivery employee. The
pizza employee walked up to
the house and knocked on the
door. When the door opened,
two black males in their teens
in T-shirts and shorts grabbed
him by the shirt and tried to pull
him into the home. The pizza
delivery employee resisted, and
as he tried to turn away from the
suspects they stabbed him in
the leg with an unknown type
of knife.
The suspects fled the resi-
dence on foot. The victim was
transported to a local hospital
with a non-life-threatening in-
jury.
A perimeter was set up by
responding Ocoee police units
with assistance from the Orange
County Sheriff's Office. Orange
County CHASE and K-9 also
responded to the scene to assist
with the search. The homeown-
ers were not at home when this
incident took place.
Anyone with information on
this case is encouraged to contact
the Ocoee Police Department or
CrimeLine at 407-423-TIPS.

Ocoee police
sergeant arrested
Following an investigation
by the Orange County Sheriff's
Office, Ocoee Police Sgt. Tom
Maroney was arrested July 10
and charged with battery, false
imprisonment and attempted
sexual battery. He was released
from the Orange County Jail on
$8,500 bond that night.
A woman accused Maroney
of pulling down her pants, fon-
dling her and spanking her with
his hand and with a belt at a
party on July 7. All this was
against her will, she said.
Maroney's attorney, Mark
Lippman, in an e-mail sent July
12, advised The West Orange
Times: "Sgt. Maroney vigor-
ously denies each and every
one of the criminal charges.
He has done nothing wrong,
and we will have our day in
court."

Two A's, 2 C's for high schools; Oakland


all 6 middle schools receive A's


By Amy Quesinberry

The state education report card
is in, and of West Orange Coun-
ty's 31 public schools, 26 earned
an A for 2008. There were also
two B's and three C's. Overall,
the district brought up its 2007
B rating to an A this year.
Two of the four local high
schools, Dr. Phillips and Olym-
pia improved from B's to A's.
West Orange improved from a
D to a C; and Ocoee maintained
a C.
All six middle schools in West
Orange Bridgewater, Chain of
Lakes, Gotha, Lakeview, Ocoee
and Southwest received an A.
Bridgewater earned the A in its
first year of operation, and the
other five held onto their top
grade.
At the elementary school
level, Maxey remained at a C,
the new Sunset Park earned an
A, Clarcona and Tildenville im-


proved from B to A, Citrus and
Spring Lake went down a grade
from A to B and 12 schools (Bay
Meadows, Dillard Street, Dr.
Phillips, Frangus, Lake Whit-
ney, MetroWest, Oakland Av-
enue, Ocoee, Palm Lake, Sand
Lake, Thornebrooke, Whisper-
ing Oak and Windermere) kept
their A grade.
The two combination schools
in West Orange County, Hope
Charter and Windy Ridge, both
earned A's for another year.
"This achievement is the re-
sult of hard work by faculty,
staff and students," said Or-
ange County Superintendent
Ronald Blocker. "In addition,
the support from the commu-
nity has helped tremendously.
We have 126 schools that are
high-performing according to
state standards, up from 115 A
and B schools last year."
Orange County was among
three large districts in Florida


to achieve an A rating.
Individual schools in Florida
are graded by the Department
of Education in three ways.
The state looks at students'
scores on FCAT reading, writ-
ing and math in third through
10th grade; science in fifth,
eighth and 11th grades; and writ-
ing in fourth, eighth and 10th.
Grades are also determined by
students' improvement in read-
ing and math scores from the
previous year and by reading
and math improvement by the
lowest 25 percent of the school's
students.
The State Legislature has
approved new rule for grading
high schools, with FCAT scores
accounting for half of each
school's grade and taking into
consideration a high school's
graduation rate and advanced-
placement results.
These new criteria will go into
effect in 2010.


as the previous year. Oakland
typically starts at a higher rate
then lowers it as the budget is
fine-tuned, but that might or
might not happen this year.
Rischitelli said she will cre-
ate a history of the surrounding
cities' budgets for the elected
officials. Commissioner Mike
Satterfield said he would like
to see growth percentages as
well.
The town manager said she
has several concerns regard-
ing next year's budget, includ-
ing Amendment No. 1 and the
"legisative.stipulation on half-
cent sales-tax removal if you do
not roll back amounts."
In other business, the elected


(Continued from 1A)


officials:
agreed by consensus to con-
tinue until the July 22 meeting
the discussion of the develop-
er's request to amend the town
code regarding wetlands rules.
At the June 24 Town Commis-
sion meeting, the commission-
ers told the developer's attor-
ney they needed two weeks to
study the rules of both Orange
County and the St. Johns River
Water Management District
before making a decision. The
town wants to make sure it
has in place the most stringent
rules for this and future devel-
opments.
Ken Wright, the attorney rep-
resenting Mere Development


Company, which has plans to
build the Oakdale community
in Oakland, was unavailable

tion.
approved Oakland Avenue
Charter School's final budget
for fiscal year 2007-08 (at $4.3
million) and the school's draft
budget for 2008-09 (at $3.64
million). Because of budget-
ing shortfalls, the school has
had to cut back or eliminate
programs. The town will take
over the meal program from
Orange County Public Schools
for a savings of $60,000. Sus-
pending the bus service for a
year will save an additional
$26,000.


Board meeting to assess city of Ocoee's

accessibility for physically challenged


The city of Ocoee's Human
Relations Diversity Board is
holding a special meeting this
Thursday, July 17, to assess
the status of the city's situa-
tion regarding physically chal-
lenged residents' needs, ability
or inability to access programs,
services, evenings, meetings,
employment and more.
The meeting will also ad-
dress the need to purchase
auxiliary aids such as TTD
for the hearing impaired, signs
for the physically challenged
to enter buildings from certain
directions; signers for the deaf


at public meetings; hearing
aids for those so challenged;
and ramps at certain events or
buildings.
The public meeting starts
at 7 p.m. at the Thomas Ison
Seniors & Veterans Center,
1701 Adair St., Ocoee, and all
interested citizens are invited
to attend.
The board is working to
heighten the awareness to
the public that approximately
4,000 individuals living in
Ocoee are physically chal-
lenged and would qualify as
disabled under the Americans


with Disabilities Act of 1992.
Board members say it is time
for the city to make it a prior-
ity to find out what is required
to make the local government
more accessible to the physi-
cally challenged.
According to City Hall, there
are approximately 4,000 indi-
viduals living in Ocoee who
are physically challenged and
would qualify as disabled un-
der the Americans with Dis-
abilities Act of 1992.
For more information about
the meeting, call Ocoee City
Hall at 407-905-3100.

Winter Garden eyes fire-assessment fee


By Michael Laval

Winter Garden could soon
be joining many local munici-
palities, including Ocoee, in as-
sessing residents a fee for fire
services.
The City Commission voted
unanimously last Thursday to
instruct City Manager Michael
Bollhoefer to draft a proposed
fire fee ordinance in time for a
first reading and public hearing
to be held at the July 24 com-
mission meeting.
"We are keeping our options
open," Bollhoefer said, explain-
ing that the ordinance will list
either a zero-dollar or nominal
amount as the proposed fee.
The plan would allow Winter
Garden to meet the timetable
required by the county tax col-
lector while also beating out a
possible impending statewide
deadline for grandfathering in
fire assessment fees.
"There is speculation that
the Florida legislature might
eliminate the fire-assessment


option for governments that
do not have an established
fee," Bollhoefer told The West
Orange Times. "With the legis-
lature still discussing more tax
cuts, the commission may want
to. keep this option open for the
future."
A study commissioned by
the city earlier this.year dem-
onstrated that fees of $274 for
each single-family residence
and $151 for multi-family
units would cover 100 percent
of the city fire department's
five-year assessable costs of
. $5,249,855.
In other business, the elected
officials:
convened as the Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA)
and approved a $100,000 dona-
tion to the Winter Garden Heri-
tage Foundation. The donation
completed a commitment made
by the CRA in 2005 to donate
$500,000 over a 15-year period
to help pay for renovations to
the Garden Theatre. Larry Cap-
pleman, CRA Advisory Board


chairman, said the agency. had
sufficient funds to pay the final
installment.
passed a resolution ex-
panding the city's Downtown
Brownfield Area for economic
development by approximately
340 acres in parts of east Winter
Garden.
approved a site plan for
705 Hennis Road, consisting
of a pair of 5,100-square-foot
buildings located at Crown
Point Business Park.
established the term lengths
for newly appointed members
of the city Architectural Review
and Historical Preservation
Board. The commission opted
for term lengths of one, two and
three years in order to stagger
term expiration ,dates. Tim
Keating and John Murphy will
both serve three years; Michael
Morrissey, Kathy Koslowski
and Buddy Nash begin two-
year terms; and Christopher Lee
and Kent Makin will sit for one
year each. All future terms on
the board will last three years.

Volunteer drivers needed to transport cancer patients


For cancer patients, the dis-
tance between them and their
treatment facility can often
hold them back from lifesaving
treatments. The American Can-
cer 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, particu-


larly in Winter Garden, Ocoee,
Apopka, southeast Orlando
and south Orlando. Spanish-
bilingual drivers are also in
demand.
The volunteer driving re-
quires no special skills or
education just a safe driv-
ing record and a valid driver's
license, a vehicle in good work-
ing condition, free time and a
desire to help.

LOW STRESS
REAL ESTATE SALES
Making a housing move gets
high marks on the stress scale,
whether you are buying or selling a
home. In addition to the fact that
there is a great deal of money
involved, there are many factors
that can complicate or delay a real
estate transaction.
A professional real estate agent
works to minimize the stress
involved in the process and to
make your settlement as problem-
free as possible. Your Realtor will
facilitate the transaction by moni-
toring the loan, coordinating
inspections and repairs, facilitating
relocation issues, and working to
solve any unforeseen difficulties
that arise during the whole pro-
cess. The negotiation process
often involves pressure and uncer-
tainty, as all parties try to reach an
agreement on the details of the
sale. Once the complex range of
issues have been appropriately
handled, the Realtor will also help
ensure a smooth transition by
reminding the sellers to arrange for
final utility readings and the buyers
to set up new utility accounts.
If you would like to talk further
about buying or selling real estate,
please contact Libby Tomyn CRS at
Century 21 Professional Group.

Congratulations to the city of Winter
Garden on a job well done. The new City
Hall adds character to the transforming
downtown and is destined to become an
area landmark
that residents
will be proud -
of. ":-
It was not I'
built as a quick -" :''
fix but designed

both physically
and in its ability
to accommo-
date the pro-
jected popula-
tion at the city's
"build-out." The care that has gone into
this project demonstrates the commitment
of the city's leadership, and it will only
help build the confidence of those invest-
ing in Winter Garden.
Deserving thanks is former Mayor Jack


Quesinberry, former commissioners Theo
Graham and the late Mildred Dixon, along
with Mayor John Rees and commission-
ers Gerald Jowers, Bob Buchanan, Harold
Bouler and Co-
lin Sharman.
City Manager
Mike Bollhoe-
fer's leadership
helped keep
this project pro-
gressive, not
I 1 short-sighted.
,, Assistant City
i' Manager Mar-
shall Robert-
son and Project
Manager Marc
Black helped keep the project in check
and construction cost down.
If you haven't seen the new City Hall,
stop by and take a look. It's the perfect
addition for "a charming little city with
a juicy past."

Letters to the editor

Retired state trooper: More funds needed for FHP


Editor:
The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) was estab-
lished in 1939 by an act of the Florida Legislature
and today is in a struggle to meet its statutory re-
sponsibility because of decades of under-funding
by the Republican legislature. Under-funding is a
politician's way of downsizing law enforcement
without leaving any fingerprints. The low pay
the FHP now experiences severely hampers its
ability to attract qualified applicants and retain
experienced troopers who leave to higher-paying
police agencies.
The FHP is Florida's police force. Since its cre-
ation, the FHP has been the nucleus of any state
response to disasters,' riots and other upheavals
that require a substantial law-enforcement com-
mitment.
How many of you have seen something hap-
pen on the highway and said, "Where is a trooper


when you need one?" Your governor, state senator
and representative are directly responsible for their
absence through under-funding and a lack of
concern for your safety on our highways.
The solution to this problem is simple and inex-
pensive. You've got to pay troopers a salary they
can live on and raise a family. You've got to fix
a problem that allows a new trooper to make as
much as a 20-year trooper. If this happens, they
will not leave for other higher-paying agencies.
There is no shortage of tax dollars in Tallahas-
see, but there is a shortage of common sense on
where to spend the money. It is time for deeds -
not verbal gymnastics. So the next time you pass
a wreck on the highway, just think if this could
have been prevented.

Blue Earth Solutions paving path for greener planet


By Michael Laval

Styrofoam, long dreaded by
environmentalists for its ev-
erlasting presence in landfills
and natural habitats, is being
given new life.
An ambitious vision for
helping save the environment
through a revolutionary meth-
od for recycling Styrofoam
and other plastics is on the
verge of becoming realized
in east Clermont. The ground
floor for Blue Earth Solutions
is an 11,000-square-foot ware-
house located off Highway
50 just west of County Road
455.
In the coming years, found-
ers Paul Slusarczyk and Jim
Cohen expect explosive
growth with new facilities
throughout the United States
and the world. Their mission
is to eliminate or significantly
reduce the global production
of polystyrene, which is used
to create a wide variety of
plastic products, most notably
expanded polystyrene, also
known as Styrofoam.
"Our goal here is to have the
greatest impact possible in re-
ducing our carbon footprint,"
said Slusarczyk. "When we
were given the opportunity
to help diminish the over-
whelming amount of waste on
our planet and recycle it, we
couldn't look the other way."
That opportunity came as a
chance meeting in February
with Harvey Katz, an inde-
pendent scientist and inven-
tor who developed a non-toxic
chemical liquid named Sty-
roSolve. Slusarczyk recalled
his amazement upon watch-
ing Katz demonstrate how
the fluid aggressively breaks
down Styrofoam by removing
carbon dioxide molecules and
transforming it into a gelati-
nous substance he calls Poly-
gel.
At the Blue Earth Solutions
office last week, Slusarczyk
re-enacted this process remi-
niscent of a science project.
As he fed handful upon hand-
ful of packing noodles into a
12-ounce jar half-filled with
StyroSolve, the container
never overflowed. After more
than a minute of stuffing Sty-
rofoam into the small glass, all
that remained was a few ounc-
es of StyroSolve and a mass
of Polygel approximately the
size of a golf ball. Slusarczyk
and Cohen said they were so

chemical solution called StyroSolve.


moved by the potential of this
product that they decided to
come out of retirement and
purchased Katz's patents for
StyroSolve. The inventor now
works for Blue Earth Solu-
tions in research and devel-
opment.
The business partners pur-
chased the Clermont ware-
house in June and expect to be
fully operational by mid-Au-
gust. During the next month,
the facility will be equipped
with an assembly line of ma-
chinery that will crush Styro-
foam and pass 60,000 pounds
at a time through a device
called an extruder, which con-
sists of nine filters.
"One of the biggest portions
of our budget is on filtration,"
Cohen said.
While inside the extruder,
the StyroSolve solution is
evaporated off the Polylgel


and captured to be re-used on
future batches. Upon complet-
ing the filtration process, the
gel has been transformed into
clean, virgin polystyrene, ac-
cording to Slusarczyk. The
substance is then chopped into
small, hard pellets ready to be
sold to a plastics manufacturer
as raw material.
Maximum efficiency and
conservation, Cohen said, will
be achieved at Blue Earth So-
lutions.
"Our operating model is to


capture 100 percent of both
polystyrene and the solvent,"
he said. "If we put in a pound
of Styrofoam, we get a pound
of pure, reusable plastic. We
are the only company I know
of that can do this. "
Blue Earth Solutions plans
to acquire its supply of poly-
styrene for free from large
companies throughout the re-
gion that otherwise would pay
thousands of dollars in dispos-
al fees. Slusarczyk, from Boca
Raton, and Cohen, an Orlando
resident, said they chose to
start their business in Central
Florida because of its heavy
concentration of high-volume
Styrofoam manufacturers and
consuming entities, including
the Orange County Conven-
tion Center, local theme parks
and construction sites.
"In order to have the great-
est impact on our carbon foot-
print, we must go after the big
projects," Cohen said.
Blue Earth Solutions will
provide the option of picking
up polystyrene and hauling
it back to its plant or deliv-
ering a StyroSolve-equipped
tractor-trailer truck capable
of processing the material
on-site. Since StyroSolve re-
duces Styrofoam by as much
as 98 percent, he explained,
transporting the substance in
its gel form greatly increases
fuel efficiency. A wide variety
of hard, plastic-based materi-
als, including cellular phones,
televisions and many familiar
items can also be broken down
and recycled, Slusarczyk said,
although Styrofoam represents
the largest volume of polysty-
rene waste.
While targeting large, bulk
quantities, Blue Earth Solu-
tions will also accept small
drop-offs at the warehouse
from anyone who'd rather
recycle Styrofoam or plastic
waste rather than letting it end
up in a landfill. Anyone in-
terested in doing so can learn
more details online at www.
blueearthsolutions.com or by
calling 352-729-0150.


Having purchased 2.8 acres
at the Clermont site, Blue
Earth Solutions has room to
triple the size of its facilities
to more than 30,000 feet. The
company's owners, though,
foresee an expansion on a
much larger scale. Slusarc-
zyk worked for 15 years with
Waste Management and also
managed a chain of Block-
buster video franchises in the
1990s. Together with Cohen,
who spent his career on Wall
Street, the longtime friends
are confident they are laying
the foundation for a new in-
dustry.
With negotiations under way
for new Blue Earth plants in
Arkansas, Georgia, New York
City, Mississippi, Tennessee,
Michigan and California,
plus international locations
including France, Switzer-
land, Spain, Israel, China and
Mexico, Slusarczyk and, Co-
hen expressed passion about


needing to spread Styrofoam
and plastic-recycling opera-
tions around the world. Cohen
plans to have 65 branches in
operation within three years
but added, "we probably won't
be here beyond that," explain-
ing he expects the company
to be bought out by a larger
corporation.
"Although we would proba-
bly make a lot more money by
continuing to keep the com-
pany ourselves," Cohen said,
"from a green standpoint, it
would be selfish to not sell
out to a company that could
accelerate the roll-out of this
operation.
"We can greatly reduce the
need to create new polysty-
rene, cut the oil consump-
tion needed to produce it and
prevent more of it from being
dumped into landfills and the
environment," he added. "This
really is a green thing for both
us and our children."


Pure polystyrene, a common form of plastic,,is the result of
Blue Earth Solutions' recycling process, which is designed
to cut the need for new Styrofoam production.


Fla.'s Farm to Fuel

summit begins July 30

at Rosen Shingle Creek


Charles H. Bronson, Flori-
da agriculture and consumer
services commissioner, an-
nounced the Third Annual
Farm to Fuel summit will take
place July 30 through Aug. 1
at the Rosen Shingle Creek
Resort.
Last year's summit in St.
Petersburg attracted more
than 450 participants, and
Bronson said he expects this
year's conference will be big-
ger and better. I
Florida's Farm to Fuel ini-
tiative seeks to enhance the
market and promote the pro-
duction and distribution of
renewable energy from Flor-
ida-grown crops, agricultural
wastes and residues and other
biomass. In the process, it is
designed to give Florida agri-
cultural producers alternative
crops to grow to keep their
farms and ranches viable.
To date, 14 companies and
universities have received $30
million in state energy grants
under the Farm to Fuel pro-
gram to construct commercial
ethanol or bio-diesel plants or
conduct demonstration proj-
ects designed to show the
feasibility of alternative en-
ergy technologies. Bronson
believes that Florida can lead
the nation in the production of
renewable energy as a result
of its mild climate, abundant
sunshine, ample rainfall and
long growing season.
"We're excited about the
program and are looking for-
ward to exploring with partici-
pants at the upcoming summit
the potential in this industry
that exists for their business-
es," Bronson said.
This year's event comes on
the heels of landmark energy
legislation at both the state


and federal level. In Decem-
ber, Congress passed the Ener-
gy Independence and Security
Act of 2007, which increased
the total amount of biofuels
required to be added to gaso-
line to 36 billion gallons by
2022, from 4.7 billion gallons
in 2007. The act further speci-
fies that 21 billion gallons of
the 2022 total must be derived
from non-cornstarch products,
such as sugar or cellulose.
A month ago, the Florida
Legislature passed a compre-
hensive energy bill intended
to set Florida on a course to
become a national leader in
clean energy. The bill requires
all gasoline sold in Florida to
contain 10 percent ethanol by
the end of 2010, requires the
state's electric utilities to pro-
duce a certain percentage of
their power from renewable
energy sources and sets pol-
lution limits for utilities and
requires those companies to
buy carbon credits when ex-
ceeding those limits.
In addition, Congress re-
cently passed the Food, Con-
servation and Energy Act of
2008, which contains a num-
ber of provisions aimed at in-
vesting in renewable energy
programs to promote energy
independence.
"There has been a good deal
of momentum recently in our
drive to get this industry off
the ground," Bronson said.
"We're eager to share that
with participants and provide
them with the information
they need to enter this indus-
try."

Church bringing back

film to Garden Theatre


Next Community Church is
once again hosting a free show-
ing of the film Lord Save Us
From Your Followers at the Gar-
den Theatre on Sunday, Aug.
10, at 5 p.m. This rerun is taking
place because of "rave reviews
and stirring conversation," said
Pastor Scott Billue.
The documentary explores
the collision of faith and culture
in America. Fed up with the an-
gry, strident language filling the
airways, director (and follower)
Dan Merchant set out to discover
why there is such a division in
America.


The movie was made in the
tradition of documentaries like
Super Size Me and Bowling For
Columbine.
With exclusive interviews with
comedian/senatorial candidate
Al Franken, liberals and conser-
vatives and features with musi-
cian Bono, Pastor Rick Warren,
James Dobson, Jerry Falwell and
Pat Robertson, no stone is left
unturned in this look at the con-
flict over religion in America.

Thai Blossom opens in downtown Winter Garden


By Mary Anne Swickerath

The first thing to know about
Thai Blossom, Winter Garden's
first Thai restaurant, is that it is
not a trendy fusion eatery mix-
ing Asian food with American
influences. Its food is seriously
Thai with some touches of Chi-
nese cuisine and is a welcome
addition to the lively Plant
Street scene.
And this authentic menu is
large. There are:
16 appetizers (I can heartily
recommend the steamed pork
dumplings and the potstick-
ers),
12 soups (two satisfying
choices are silver noodle soup
with chicken and shrimp and
Thai noodle chicken soup),
11 salads (try the Thai
Blossom salad with chicken
and boiled eggs),
seven noodle selections
(the pad Thai is a healthy, light
version of this classic),
eight fried rice dishes (in-
cluding the unusual pineapple
fried rice with shrimp, chicken,
pineapple, eggs, cashew nuts
and raisins),
15 dinner entrees (all avail-
able with a choice of chicken,
beef, pork, vegetable and
tofu),
six aromatic curries (the
panang red curry is the res-
taurant's delicious signature
dish),
eight shellfish specialties
featuring crab, shrimp, scal-
lops, mussels and squid with
a variety of Thai sauces and
vegetables,
and five deep-fried red
snapper specialties, which
have proven a popular choice
for some of the many already-
regular diners.
There are also seven des-
serts, including a creamy
caramel custard, and a kids'
menu with fried rice (chicken
or plain) and the un-Thai-like
corn dog or chicken nuggets
served with fries.
To say Thai Blossom offers
a trove of choices is an un-
derstatement. The hard part is


Tyler and Patcharee Cravens are the owners of Thai Blos-
som Restaurant that opened June 1 in downtown Winter
Garden.


making a decision about what
to'order.
The restaurant has taken over
the former Choctaw Willy's
space in the historic Edgewater
Hotel, and the renovation has
produced a much more com-.
fortable space, both simple and
elegant.
The owners, a charming
husband-and-wife team, are
Tyler and Patcharee Cravens.
He's originally from Jackson,
Miss., and she is from Saraburi
in Central Thailand. He is an
actor and entertainer (and a
cast member at Universal Or-
lando) who also has 15 years
of restaurant experience. She
co-owned a restaurant in Los
Angeles for five years, has a
college degree in finance and
accounting and came to the
U.S. 11 years ago.


The couple, who met in Los
Angeles and are now residents
of Davenport, moved to Cen-
tral Florida three and one-half
years ago, six months after
their wedding. They were in-
terested in opening their own
restaurant, and, when friends
in Winter Garden told them of
the space available in the Edge-
water Hotel, they quickly made
their move.
"We put the deal together in
a day," said Tyler.
The restaurant, which opened
June 1, is a real team effort by
Tyler and Patcharee.
"We do everything togeth-
er," he said. "We are true soul
mates."
He handles,the manage-
ment of the dining room, and
she oversees the cooking, and
they have both been so happy


with the welcome they have
received.
"We hit the ground running,"
said Tyler, "and Winter Garden
has been fantastic to us. The
response has been great. A lot
of families are coming in to eat,
which is nice."
They are especially proud
of their food and the culture it
represents.
"We serve traditional Thai
food in a contemporary style,"
said Patcharee.
Tyler added, "Thai food is a
much more flavorful, less-oily
Chinese-style cuisine," one that
can be spiced from mild to hot
with guests choosing their fa-
vorite level of heat.
A beer and wine license is
in the works, and the Cravens
plan to serve Asian and domes-
tic beers, red and white wines,
plum wine and saki.
Thai Blossom is open seven
days a week: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Monday through Thursday, 11
a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and
Saturday and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
on Sunday.
A limited lunch menu is in
effect Monday through Friday
from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with
soup, salad, entrie and steamed
jasmine rice offered for $6.95
- but everything on the regu-
lar menu is also available at
the regular prices all during
the day.
"We are trying to encour-
age a late-night crowd, espe-
cially on Sundays when a lot
of restaurants are closed," said
Tyler.
So whether you are a Thai-
food lover or someone new to
this flavorful cuisine, one influ-
enced by both China and India,
the Cravens are eager to have
you as their guests and will
help you navigate through their
large, enticing menu.

A winner in the North Carolina sweet potato recipe contest


By Mary Anne Swickerath

The North Carolina Sweet-
Potato Commission (yes, there
really is such a.group) has an-
nounced the winners of its
first-ever recipe contest fea-
turing the versatile vegetable.
The categories in the Get Fresh
with North Carolina Sweet Po-
tato Challenge were soups, sal-
ads, side dishes and desserts.
The contest drew more than
2,000 entries, and $5,000 in
prize money was distributed.
I checked out the winning

potatoes.com Web site and
chose to share the unusual
salad recipe with you. It is
Southwestern Roasted North
Carolina Sweet Potato Salad
submitted by Sharyn Hill from
Las Cruces, N.M. (All the win-

Thursday, July 17, 2008 The West Orange Times 9A


Boyd
Advisory Board, the Orange
County Agricultural Advi-
sory Board and the Orange
and Lake County Sheriff's
Offices' Rural Enforcement
Communications Network.
He said in his three terms
on the Building Codes Board,
his primary focus "has been to
inform the citizens of Orange
County about this valuable as-
set and to increase the amount
of civil penalties against un-
licensed contractors. This
experience has educated me
to the needs of citizens over
which government has such
great influence."

Important issues
Boyd lists juvenile crime at
the top of the important issues
that need to be addressed.
"My No. 1 focus will be
our youth and families and
the need to build stronger re-
lationships for them through
partnerships with various
communities," he said, "This
will, in turn, give our at-risk
youth the tools needed to
help themselves. I propose
that we engage residents in
civic building opportunities
through community redevel-
opment and promote an Urban
Garden program...."
He promises to work along-
side county commission-
ers and the Sheriff's Office
and with all municipal law-
enforcement jurisdictions
"to collectively combat the
increased violent crime we
now face."
This would include put-
ting more deputies on patrol
throughout the county.
Preserving the environment
and our water supply is also a
top priority for him.
"As an agriculturalist, I
know the importance of our
valued water supply and that
we can no longer just pro-
mote a fee-based deterrent to
encourage less watering," he
said. "We, as a community,
need to work toward moving
away from St. Augustine grass
and high-water-dependant
landscape plants that cause
us to dispense 60 percent of
our water to our lawns. I will
work to require new residen-
tial, commercial and retail de-
velopments to utilize drought-
tolerant grasses and plants. I
will also work closely with


our current residents and ho-
meowner associations, as well
as with our agricultural com-
munities, to promote those
other available methods to
reduce water consumption."

Goals if elected
Besides his goals for re-
duced crime and protection of
our water supply, Boyd aims
to work to ensure the county
grows in a "smart and respon-
sible manner."
He says his experience in
helping to preserve the his-
toric areas of Oakland and
Winter Garden when he par-
ticipated in what has now de-
veloped into the first certified
green community to be built
in Central Florida gave him
experience in following "a
smart growth pattern" that has,
at the same time, "preserved
our natural amenities."
An additional goal of his
is to use his knowledge as a
businessman and his under-
standing of the importance of
being fiscally responsible and
maximizing every available
resource to get through these
difficult economic times.
"As a county commissioner,
I will embrace these practic-
es and work toward holding
the line on taxes by mak-
ing certain that government
functions within its means,"
he said. "I will also support
meaningful ethics and elec-
tions reform measures that
promote a more open and hon-
est government. Furthermore,
I will aim toward attracting
higher-paying jobs by com-
peting for new high-tech and
bio-tech industries while also
protecting small businesses,
tourism and our agricultural
industries."

Reason for running
"Running for the commis-
sion for Orange County Dis-
trict 1 is very much a logical
extension of my service to
the community, a community
I love and in which my wife
and I are raising our children,"
said Boyd.
He has deep roots in this
area, he said, and, he wants
to see it thrive. In addition,
his experience of cancer as a
college student "gave me new
insight into how I should in-
vest my time."


Dr. P. Phillips Park. I worked
with school district officials to
fast-track construction of Sand
Lake Elementary School to re-
lieve severe overcrowding at Bay
Meadows. I proposed and served
on the committee that created
new landscaping and architectur-
al standards north of the Disney
tourist area, which has helped to
attract tens of millions of dollars
in economic development."
He also co-founded the South-
west Orange County Crime Pre-
vention Task Force and served
as fund-raising co-chair to build
a new Jewish Community Cen-
ter.

Important issues
Geller said, if elected, he will
place exceptional focus on crime
and safety, schools, roads and the
environment. He plans to work
with the new Orange County
sheriff "to reallocate resources
to put more uniformed deputies
in marked cars in our neighbor-
hoods," especially since hom-
eowners associations now have
to assess their residents tens of
thousands of dollars for off-duty
deputy patrols, a case of an unfair
hidden tax, he said.
He promises to work with the
School Board, businesses and
civic groups "to ensure we are
providing our children with the
best education possible to pre-
pare them for the diverse and
changing job market."
And he added: "We need to
plan for the schools of tomorrow
in sensible locations. We need to
create more govemment-to-gov-
emrnment and public/private part-
nerships to bolster and enhance
our children's education."
As far as growth, he said plans
must be made for future growth
in a responsible and manageable
way: "We must work together
with other planning agencies in
our region. I will ensure that new
growth is consistent with existing
neighborhoods."
Environmentally, he thinks Or-
ange County and all of Central
Florida must have a comprehen-
sive water policy "that address-
es future water needs without
damaging the environmentally
sensitive wetlands adjacent to
our spring-fed lakes and rivers"
and pledges to work with state
legislators, the water manage-
ment districts and the Oakland
Nature Preserve and to press the
importance of continuing the


Lake Apopka clean-up.

Goals if elected
In addition to the issues above,
Geller said he will work to diver-
sify the local economy in order to
draw higher-paying jobs to West
Orange: "We have an enormous
economic asset with the Horizon
West Town Center awaiting de-
velopment on the 429 beltway,
along with our tremendous hu-
man capital and attractive envi-
ronment. We need to make sure
it's done right."
Another issue is the water
quality of the Butler Chain of
Lakes: "We need to protect the
aquatic vegetation around the
lakes that filter phosphorous and
other pollutants for all who live
on the lakes, all who boat and
fish on the lakes and those who
will in the future."
He also thinks the county's
sign ordinance needs to be re-
vised in order to avoid visual
clutter in commercial districts,
that conservation land and park
land must be set aside and that
important resources, such as
Nehrling Gardens, must be pre-
served. In addition, he said, work
must be done to solve transporta-
tion challenges: Securing rights-
of-way, creating transportation
alternatives and targeting traffic
bottlenecks are imperative. We
must budget for these crucial
needs."

Reason for running
"We need an effective com-
missioner who understands our
communities' needs and how to
approach solving our challenges
and enhance our natural assets,"
said Geller of his decision to run
for the Orange County District
1 seat.
"I want to continue and expand
the service I have given to our
community in addressing growth
issues, focus local government
on making our neighborhoods
safe and crime-free, improve
our transportation systems and
continue to improve our school
system."
He added: "I have unique
qualifications to serve our com-
munity. Hundreds of neighbors
can attest to my depth of experi-
ence and track record achieving
good things for the community.
To represent us effectively, we
need more than the desire to
serve. We need strong skills and
experience."

Ocoee



Ocoee High grad visits her parents' native country


By Jennifer Ho

(Editor's note: Ocoee resi-
dent Jennifer Ho is a recent
graduate of Ocoee High School
and is currently studying at Va-
lencia Community College. She
plans to complete her degree
at the University of Central
Florida. Her interests include
traveling, journalism, digital
media production and vintage
cars. She wrote this story for
The West Orange Times.)

As a new high school grad-
uate about to enter college, I
promised myself this sum-
mer would be different, filled
with adventures and flying
thousands of miles away to
Vietnam for a three-week trip.
Being Vietnamese-American,
this trip meant more than visit-
ing a foreign country for a cul-
tural experience. In Vietnam, I
would be able to visit relatives
whom I have never met and see
the country my parents called
home before they moved to the
states.
From the first second I
stepped out of the airport in Ho
Chi Minh City (formerly called
Saigon), Vietnam unexpectedly
surprised me. The city offered
modern automobiles, motor-
cycles and towering buildings.
Ignorantly, I did not expect this.
Shopping in Ho Chi Minh City
is the main reason why tour-
ists flock to the bustling city.
Finding a good buy is an easy
task in the "big city." On every
street, there are clothing stores,
souvenir shops and restaurants.
The fashion trends in Ho Chi
Minh City seemed to have
strayed away from the tradi-
tional Vietnamese clothing and
are now influenced by Western
culture. However, I did see
women donned in Ao dais, the
traditional dress for Vietnam-
ese women, when attending
* church services, weddings and
other special occasions. Most
of the elderly wore Vietnam-
ese-style thin clothing to stay
cool from the hot weather, and
the younger generation wore
T-shirts, jeans and shorts.
I never stayed in any hotels
during my sojourn in Vietnam,
but I recall a billboard in Ho
Chi Minh City advertising $95
USD for a night in a four-star
hotel. However, I did dine at
many restaurants throughout
my trip. In many of the restau-
rants my family and I visited
in Ho Chi Minh City, the cost
for a group of six people for
a three-course meal was only
$15. Most restaurants serve
Pho (a Vietnamese beef noo-
dle soup), rice, fish, vegetables,
beef and spring rolls.
After spending a week in Ho
Chi Minh City, I traveled to
Vung Tau, two hours away. In


Jennifer Ho of Ocoee took this photo of a street scene in Vietnam.


Vung Tau, I visited the beach, a
mall that sold high-end makeup
and clothing, various restau-
rants and outside markets. The
beach in Vung Tau is lovely
due to its nearby scenery of
mountains and a harbor filled
with fishermen and commercial
boats. Interestingly enough,
Vung Tau offers high-class
restaurants and immaculate
hotels located near the town's
elegant beach, all seeming like
they could be fit for royalty. In
Vung Tau's markets and stores
I noticed similar prices and
goods one could encounter in
, Ho Chi Minh City. However,
buying authentic brand-name
clothing or accessories in Viet-
nam is not any less expensive
than it is in America.
During my visit in Vung Tau,
I stayed with my grandmother.
Similar to other homes in mod-
ernized areas such as Ho Chi
Minh City, my grandmother's
house is structured as a unit
due to the limited availabil-
ity of land in the city. On my
grandmother's street, there are
numerous two- or three-story
units. In these type of homes,
the building's ground floors are
typicAlly used for businesses
and stores. In the building's up-
per levels are the living spaces
for the family. Vung Tau offers
most of the establishments you
can find in Ho. Chi Minh City

restaurants and hotels. In addi-
tion, the cuisine in Vung Tau is
similar to Ho Chi Minh City's
cuisine.
My third destination was
Hue, which is north of Ho Chi
Minh City. In the past, Hue was
a prominent fishing village and
a home to many emperors be-
longing to the Nguyen Dynasty.
Though this prominently Bud-
dhist town has modernized, it
still offers a countryside of lush
green rice fields, captivating
scenery and mountains over-
looking the massive beach.
In Hue's city district, there
are beautifully constructed
hotels, karaoke bars, clothing
stores and fancy restaurants.
The city's cuisine typically
consists of vegetables, noodles
and rice. The city offers what
you may find in Ho Chi Minh
City but with more cleanliness
and less traffic. Homes in Hue's
city district are also constructed
as tall buildings, but outside of
the city limits, houses are con-
structed similar to Buddhist
temples.
Throughout Hue's country-
side, I saw abandoned and cur-
rently used temples, tombs and
pagodas. I noticed that workers
wore cone-shaped bamboo hats
as they plowed the rice fields.
Unlike Vung Tau and Ho
Chi Minh City, I could imagine


A woman selling fish in a local market.


how Vietnam would have been
years ago from visiting Hue. Of
course, modem motorcycles are
popular in Hue, but I also saw
other modes of transportation.
For example, in the country-
side, I watched cows transport
people in wooden carriages,
people traveling on bikes and
pedestrians.


After four days in Hue, I
boarded a flight to return to
Ho Chi Minh City. Inevitably,
my trip concluded shortly after
arriving there. As I spent my
last hour in Vietnam, sitting
in a plastic chair near Gate 15
departing for Hong Kong (one
of the three stops in my trip to
return to the United States), I


realized what I had experienced
in Vietnam.
Thrilled to return to America
but sad to leave a country that
had become my home for al-
most a month, I made another
promise to myself as I sat in
the airport chair. In two years,
I will make another journey to
Vietnam.

Youth heart screening event set for Aug. 15, 16 at mall


HeartScreen America and
Saving Young Hearts have
teamed up to provide safe,
non-invasive and painless heart
screenings that can detect risk
factors associated with sudden
cardiac arrest on Friday and
Saturday, Aug. 15 and 16, at
the West Oaks Mall Commu-
nity Room, 9401 W. Colonial
Drive in Ocoee. The tests are
for youth 6-18 years of age.
Each year thousands of chil-
dren, teens and young adults
die suddenly due to cardiac
arrhythmias. Many victims
have no prior history of heart
disease and are stricken with-
out warning. The real tragedy
is that many of these deaths
could have been prevented with
a quick, affordable test.
The heart screening consists
of an electrocardiogram (EKG),


a blood pressure reading and
body mass index calculation
and a personal and family heart
health questionnaire. EKG re-
sults are interpreted by a board-
certified cardiologist. The cost
is $15, and only Visa or Mas-
terCard will be accepted. (This
screening is normally $49, but

Drainage
In addition, photos taken
during construction at the four
sites are posted on the town
Web site www.town.wind-
ermere.fl.us under the topic
public works.
This work has been in the
planning and design process
for four years. In 2004, the
town started examining and
evaluating numerous loca-
tions in town where unfil-
tered stormwater was flowing
directly into the Butler Chain
of Lakes.
The Butler Chain has 11
lakes, which are known for
their pristine water quality.
The chain has been classified
as Outstanding Florida Waters
by the state's Department of
Environmental Protection. Of
Florida's 1,700 rivers, lakes,
chains of lakes and estuarine
areas, only 41 have earned this
classification.
In his report last week, Fitz-
gibbon described the various
projects.
At outfall No. 1, 11515
Lake Butler Blvd., corrective
work redirected stormwater
runoff into an existing reten-
tion pond to be treated before
it goes through a Stormceptor
and culverts and then into the
lake.
Stormceptor systems slow
incoming stormwater to create
a non-turbulent treatment en-
vironment, allowing free oils
and debris to rise and sediment
to settle. The Stormceptor cap-
tures and contains all pollut-
ants during all rainfall events
regardless of flow rate.
The second site is located
at 11729 Lake Butler Blvd.
At this location, work crews
cleaned an area alongside an
existing retention pond and
then planted it with tiers of
aquatic plants. They also re-
moved and replaced culverts
to drain the stormwater under
a driveway and across Lake
Butler Boulevard toward the
lake.
The stormwater improve-
ments at the third work lo-
cation on South Lake Butler
Boulevard included cleaning
out the existing swale and
planting it with aquatic plant
material.
At the fourth worksite, a
450-gallon Stormceptor was
installed at the intersection
of Second Avenue and Pine


(Continuedfrom lA)


Street, along with a series
of pipes, culverts and storm
drains. The new system is de-
signed to take stormwater run-
off from Second Avenue and
treat it for impurities before
transporting it through a series
of culverts and drains until it
flows into the lake.
The work on North Oakdale
from First Avenue north to the
canal connecting Lake Butler
and Lake Down, which begins
next Monday, is an extensive
project that involves excava-
tion and grading; asphalt pav-
ing; removal and reinstallation
of 17 mailboxes; installing
several storm structures, cul-
verts and pipes and a concrete
sidewalk; along with resod-
ding. Completion is expected
the end of August or early
September.
The final project, called Out-
Sfall No. 4, will resolve flood-
ing and drainage problems at
the intersection of Fifth Av-
enue at Lake Street. The town
has a prescriptive easement
required for this work, but it
is still meeting with an adja-
cent property owner to dis-
cuss various options on how
the work should proceed. The
project includes removing and
replacing existing driveways,
excavating and grading and in-
stalling Stormceptors, asphalt
paving, drains, curbing, gut-
ters and sod.
Initially, Windermere hired
Professional Engineering Con-
sultants to examine 17 direct
outfalls into the Butler Chain
of Lakes to prepare conceptual
designs that would mitigate or
clean stormwater before it goes
into the lakes. Town officials
later identified six more direct
outfall locations and added
them to the list.
On the recommendation of
the Long-range Planning Com-
mittee, the council prioritized
all 23 outfall locations and de-
cided to move ahead with cor-
rective work on six of them.
In April the town hired All
Florida Guardrail to complete
the work at these six sites at
a cost of $527,245. The work
is partially funded by a 319
Nonpoint Source Management
Grant of $362,942, which is
administered by the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection. Much of the work
in progress has also been au-


thorized by the South Florida
Water Management District
and is subject to a final inspec-
tion by SFWMD and FDEP.
In other business, the coun-
cil:
heard a report from en-
gineer Tom Kelley regarding
progress on a proposed traffic
circle at the intersection of
Maguire Road and Park Ave-
nue. The council voted unani-
mously to install overheard
wiring at a cost of $19,742
instead of underground lines
for $50,000.
listened to a report from
Town Manager Cecilia Bernier
on privatizing the town's per-
mitting process instead of
using the services of Orange
County. She will continue the
research and present more
detailed information next
month.
approved the report of the
Evaluation and Appraisal Re-
port committee to amend the
town's Comprehensive Plan
and agreed to transmit it to the
Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs. To complete
this matter, the council held a
first reading of an ordinance
that details this process. A
second reading and proposed
adoption of this ordinance will
take place in August.
waived the Town Hall rent-
al fee for the Henry Nehrling
Society to hold a fund-raiser
on Aug. 8 from 7 p.m. until
midnight.
discussed new signage for
Fernwood Park and agreed to
examine existing ordinances
regarding picnicking and park-
ing before making a final de-
cision on the wording for the
signs.
accepted for review a re-
written section of the town's
code of ordinances regarding
accessory structures prepared
by Stephen Withers, a member
of the Development Review
Board. The council, town
manager and town attorney
will evaluate the document
and hold a discussion at the
August meeting.
considered installing stop
signs at Pine Street and Second
Avenue to reduce vehicular
speeding at the request of two
residents. The council asked
the Police Department to in-
crease surveillance at the area
to address the problem.

WOHS student tours
with Boston Crusaders
Drum & Bugle Corps
West Orange High School
student Devon Lundine per-
formed July 12 in theCitrus
Bowl with the Boston Cru-
saders Drum & Bugle Corp,
a world-class marching band
r that has been touring the
- country yearly since 1940.
a Lundine, 17, lives in Ocoee
t and will be a senior at West
a Orange in the fall. He plays
C trombone and baritone for
the WOHS Marching Band,
the WOHS Varsity Jazz Band
and the All-County Honor
Band. He was low-brass sec-
tion leader his junior year and
will be band president his se-
nior year.
Lundine had to undergo
an arduous audition process
in November and Decem-
ber before being chosen to
march with the Boston Cru-
saders, competing against
hundreds of high school and
college students from all over
the U.S., as well as Japan
and the Netherlands, all vy-
ing for the group's 150 spots.
Applicants were judged on
marching and musical ability,
as well as a strong work ethic
and good attitude.


But getting in is just the be-
ginning. Marching in a Drum
Corps International world-
class drum corps involves
hours of dedicated practice
and touring the nation as it
gives performances all sum-
mer. A typical non-show day
starts with a 6 a.m. run, fol-
lowed by three hours of mu-
sic rehearsals, four hours
of marching practice and
another four hours of music
rehearsal, with lights out at
midnight.
This year, the Boston
Crusaders will compete in
26 events as they travel in
buses from Massachusetts
to New York, Ohio, Michigan,
Wisconsin, Pennsylvania,
New Hampshire, New Jer-
sey, Virginia, South Carolina,
Georgia, Florida, Mississippi,
Louisiana, Texas, Kansas,
North Carolina, West Virginia
and Ohio, culminating in the
DCI World Championship
semifinals and finals compe-
titions in Bloomington, Ind.,
Aug. 7-9.
The Boston Crusaders al-
ready have become a crowd
favorite this summer, gar-
nering standing ovations
at each performance. This

Zarathustra" (more com-
monly known as music from
the movie Space Odyssey:
2001), "Kingfishers Catch
Fire," "Moondance" from Au-
gust Rush, "Burly Brawl" from
The Matrix and "Conquest."
The DCI Orlando event
was part of Drum Corps In-
ternational's Summer Music
Games Tour, which includes
more than 35 world champi-
onships in 16 North American
cities, as well as more than
135 competitions nationwide,
and provides entertainment
to millions through live per-
formances and nationally
televised events.
Drum Corps International
is "Marching Music's Major
League." The corps is made
up of brass and percussion
musicians, as well as color
guard. Participants in U.S.-
based drum and bugle corps
come from all over the nation
and more than 15 countries.
Each year, more than 8,000
students audition for the few-
er-than-3,500 positions avail-
able in top-tier DCI member
corps. The average age of
participants is 19, and 72
percent are full-time college
students.

Construction of
South Lake County's
Cooper Memorial
Library is under way
More than 150 attendees
watched as ground was bro-
ken for a new South Lake li-
brary last month. Developed
through a partnership between
Lake-Sumter Community Col-
lege, the Lake County Board
of County Commissioners, the
University of Central Florida
and the Friends of the Cooper
Memorial Library, the new fa-
cility had a large crew for its
ceremonial excavation.
The new 50,000-square-
foot library will be located on
LSCC's South Lake Campus
and will retain the name of Cler-
mont's historic Cooper Memo-
rial Library. The community/
collegiate library's floor plan
includes a 6,000-square-foot
children's section, a separate
area for teenagers, classrooms,
study rooms, computer banks
with wireless Internet access, a
restaurant and a bookstore.
"Since LSCC's South Lake
Campus library and Clermont's
current downtown location were
both in need of expansions, it
made sense to collaborate,"
said Denise English, LSCC di-
rector of Library Services. "The
combined collections will be an
asset to everyone."
Slated for an August 2009
opening, the building will cost
$12.8 million, with an addi-
tional $1.5 million earmarked
for books, equipment and fur-
niture. Primary contributors
were Lake County and the
two schools, with $6.5 million
in matching state funds. The
Friends of the Cooper Memo-
rial Library fund-raising efforts
have so far contributed more
than $300,000.

Whispering Oak


Roy Lantang, Olive Garden general manager, and Dr. Anne
Carcara, Southwest Middle principal, honor Alexandra
Swets for winning the 7th-grade category of Pasta Tales, a
national essay-writing contest sponsored by Olive Garden
Restaurants.


SWMS student named
winner in Olive Garden's
national essay contest
Alexandra Swets' favorite
family activity is vacationing
in a camper for two weeks
every summer. Swets' de-
scriptive essay about why this
is special to her was chosen
by judges as the best-written
entry by a seventh-grader in
the 12th Annual Olive Garden
Pasta Tales national essay
writing contest.
A student at Southwest Mid-
dle School, Swets was one of
more than 28,000 entries -
the most ever received in the
history of the contest. Students
in first through 12th grade
were asked, "What is your fa-
vorite family activity, and what
makes it so special?"
A winner was announced in
each of 12' grade categories.
Swets, along with the other
grade winners, received a
$500 savings bond and dinner
with her family at the local Ol-'
ive Garden.
According to judges, Swets'
essay conveyed her family's
cooperation, which made their
camping trips a success be-
cause they really "talk and lis-


ten to each other."
Swets wrote: "Vacationing in
a camper is special to me be-
cause you really get to know
your family. Since most places
have no cell phone service,
television or Internet access,.
you have no distractions....
Vacationing in a camper...
takes us away from our hectic
schedules at home and allows
us to spend quality time as a
family."
Pasta Tales is designed to
encourage young writers to
express themselves and im-
prove their writing skills. En-
tries were judged on creativity,
adherence to theme, organi-
zation, grammar, punctuation
and spelling by Olive Garden
and the Quill and Scroll Soci-
ety of the College of Journal-
ism and Communications at
the University of Iowa.
"Every year, we are im-
pressed by the creativity and
talent of these young writers,"
said Mara Frazier, spokesper-
son for Olive Garden. "Thanks
to them for their efforts, as
well as to the parents and
teachers who encourage them
to express their thoughts and
emotions through writing."

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


Be prayerful and don't allow the en-
emy to bring fear. Fear produces many
wrong results that are not at first rec-
ognized because of the emotion and the
human perspective that we do indeed
have something to fear.

1 Timothy 1:7 "God has not given us
a spirit of fear, but of power, love and
sound mind." When fear (a demonic
lying spirit) takes over, it is not God's
Spirit in control, and:

1. We lose power/authority and begin
to be tentative in speaking the truth we
know;

2. We lose love/and become suspect of

all and make wrong judgments about in-
dividuals motives and thus we become
guilty of the very thing we are fearful
of...lack of love toward another; and

3. We lose sound judgment and begin to
make wrong decisions in almost every
area not just in the area of the "fear".

Take captive every thought to Christ
and every feeling too. Clothe yourself
in Christ from the inside out and walk
on in the Light/Truth that you have.
