Celebrate town's heritage

with food, friends and fun


By Amy Quesinberry
It was 121 years ago that the
town of Oakland was incorporated,
but records indicate there were
four Indian trading posts and six
Indian villages set up in the area
as early as the 1850s.
The first real settler, James
Gamble Speer, came to the
Oakland area after being


appointed a member of the Indian
Removal Commission. He bought
some land between Lake Apopka
and John's Lake in 1857. The
park at the northwest corner of
Tubb Street and Briley Avenue is
named for this pioneer.
And it is at Speer Park that the
town will recognize its past at the
llth annual Oakland Heritage
Festival this Saturday, Oct. 25. It

Oakland chief compares

this year's crimes to '07


By Amy Quesinberry
Overall crime is down in
Oakland this year, Police Chief
Tim Driscoll told the Town
Commission at its regular
meeting last week. He prepared
a comparative report for crime
statistics for identical periods in
2007 and 2008 to demonstrate
the improvement.
The number of crimes against
persons was down in 2008.
Last year's total was 36 for
the period ending Oct. 7, and
this year's total stands at 20.
Aggravated assaults were down
from 7 to 1, and simple assaults
were down from 19 to 14.
In the category of crimes
against property, there have
been 37 instances of burglary/
breaking and entering this year,
14.


up from 31 at this time last year.
There were 42 larceny reports
this year and 52 last year. Motor
vehicle thefts in 2008 and 2007
remained the same: 7.
This year's number of fraud
cases stands at 2 as compared
to 4 a year ago. There have
been 9 reports of destruction of
property/vandalism so far this
year; there were 15 last year.
As for crimes against society,

Break-ins rattle Belmere residents


Homeowners are
being urged to join
the Neighborhood
Crime Watch
program.
By Amy Quesinberry

Two back-to-back burglaries
in the Belmere subdivision last
week have residents frightened
because they occurred during
the day and the homeowners
suffered major possession loss.
No one was home during ei-
ther incident, according to Linda
Urban, a Belmere resident who
serves as a block captain for the
Belmere-Whitney Isle HOA
Neighborhood Crime Watch
program. However, a small fam-
ily dog was let out to wander the
streets while one of the crimes
was being committed, she said.
Belmere is located on Magu-
ire Road in unincorporated Or-
ange County between Ocoee
and Windermere.
"The Belmere-Whitney Isle
Crime Watch highly encour-
ages homeowners in these two
subdivisions to do an immedi-
ate security system check on
their home and make sure their
security systems are activated,
as well as the roof siren system
and the motion sensors," Urban
said.
She is also urging area resi-
dents to contact their local Crime
Watch and become a member or


a block captain. Anyone inter-
ested in getting involved or in
serving as a block captain (one
is needed for every 10 homes)
can send an e-mail to jcacei-
tuno@aol.com or lindaat254@
aol.com.
To start a Crime Watch pro-
gram in unincorporated Orange
County, residents can call the
Orange County Sheriff's Office
at 407-254-6805.


The county also provides free
home security evaluations.
Urban urged area residents to
be cautious.
"We must remain proactive
with our neighborhood watch,
and we must watch out for each
other's families' safety and the
protection of our possessions
in order to alleviate further in-
cidences of home-invasion bur-
glary."

I hursday, October 23, 2008 Ihe West Orange 7imnes 3A


Chief (Continued from A)


Church, 304 E. Oakland Ave.,
and another for West Orange
Baptist Church, 200 S. Tubb
St.
Anointed Ground came before
the commission two years ago
proposing to enlarge an exist-
ing single-family residence
into a church and residence for
a total of 12,300 square feet.
That special exception request
is void because of the time
lapse. Pastor Joseph and Pa-
trice Reeves have revised their
site plan, and the new church is
now proposed at 5,879 square
feet with 120 seats. The exist-
ing structure will remain as the
residence, and the total square
footage is 8,719.
The commissioners voted 3-0
to grant the special exception.
Commissioner Willie Welch
abstained from voting because
he is a member of the church,
and Commissioner Mike Sat-
terfield was not at the meeting.
"You guys have been instru-
mental in helping us keep this
dream alive," Pastor Reeves
told the commission.
West Orange Baptist is
proposing constructing a
23,200-square-foot multi-pur-
pose building. Town Planner
Roland Magyar said that al-
though the structure does not
meet the town's Gateway Cor-
ridor Ordinance standards, it
does meet the criteria for a spe-
cial exception request, which is
what the church is making.
The commission voted unani-
mously to approve the build-
ing's use and setbacks.
Both churches might have to
put in a well for potable water
and emergency fire response.
At a future date, when the
town isn't facing such a critical
water shortage, they will have
the option to keep their well
or connect to the town's water
supply.
In other business, the elected
officials:
* accepted the first reading of a
special exception request from
Jeff Voss, an Oakland resident

Ocoee police seeks I
Editor:
It's that time of year again, and the holiday
season is coming fast. The Ocoee Police De-
partment is beginning to prepare for our 2008
annual "Holiday Toys for Kids in Need" pro-
gram for the needy children and families in
our community.
All money raised for the program comes
\from donations from our local and surround-
ing business community, private citizens and
various types of fund-raisers. Toys and holi-
day treats, along with other needed items, are
purchased and distributed to needy families in
the Ocoee community for the winter holidays.
For many of these families, the gifts from our
program will be the only holiday gifts their
children will receive. Last year we provided
for 450 children in 200 needy families.
Your monetary donation can either be
dropped off at the Ocoee Police Department
or mailed to Holiday Toys for Kids in Need,


help with toy program
Ocoee Police Department, 175 N. Bluford
Ave., Ocoee, FL 34761. If you prefer to do-
nate new toys, you may drop them off at our
main station or call us and we will be happy to
pick them up.
Be assured that your entire donation directly
benefits the children in the Ocoee community.
There are no administrative expenses involved
because our city employees will again donate
their time to make sure our program is as suc-
cessful this year as it has been in past years.
The Ocoee Police Department has been con-
ducting our holiday program for more than 23
years. Please help us make this holiday pro-
gram a special time for the children in the
Ocoee community.
On behalf of the Ocoee Police Department
and the city of Ocoee, we thank you for your
continue support of our program.

Voter urges 'yes' vote on conservation amendment


Editor,
In this election, voters will have an
opportunity to support conservation of
private lands by supporting Amendment 4,
The Conservation Land Amendment. This
amendment will give property-tax emption for
private lands placed in permanent protection by
conservation easements. It will also direct the
legislature to pass a law that allows property
that is being used for conservation purposes,
but not given permanent conservation
easements, to be taxed as conservation lands,


not for highest and best use.
State budgets for purchase of conservation
lands will continue to be tight, and this
provides landowners who choose to conserve
their lands incentives to do so.
This amendment should be fairly non-
controversial, and more information is
available at www.amendment4florida.com. I
urge everyone to support it by voting yes on
Amendment 4.

Winter Garden


'Zombies from the Beyond'
continues at Garden Theatre


Blessing the animals
Church of the Messiah celebrated the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi by blessing furry,
feathered and finned friends of the congregation. The church is at the corner of Main and
Tilden streets in Winter Garden. At right is the Rev. Tom Rutherford.


"In living our lives, we all
have a story to share," says
Winter Garden author Rhett
Massey. "Unfortunately, be-
cause of competing demands
on our time, very few of us ever
sit down to record incidents we
recall, much less share them in
book format with strangers."
In his new book To Live
Again, A New Beginning,
Massey candidly shares mor-
sels of truth from his life.
What is unique about this
book, the author said, is that it
deals with life issues and ex-
periences everyone has expe-
rienced or will experience at
some point in time."
He calls his writing very per-
sonal, inspirational and moti-
vational. In most of the pieces,
he challenges readers "to think
about what they have read and
encourages them to seek other
truths for themselves and their
own unique situations," he
said.
While growing up in Win-
ter Garden, Massey attended
Lakeview Junior Senior High
School and graduated with
honors. He continued his edu-
cation at Florida State Univer-
sity in Tallahassee, majoring in
business administration with
a minor in economics and re-
ligion and then went to How-
ard University in Washington,
D.C., where he pursued a Mas-
ter of Divinity degree with an
emphasis on religious educa-
tion.
While this is his first book, it
is not his first literary endeav-
or. He is the writer, producer
and director of a play, If God
is Dead, which premiered at
the Bay Street Church of God
in Christ in Winter Garden.
While in undergraduate school,
he created and developed a
monthly newsletter, The Wat-
sonite, and served as its editor-
in-chief. The mission of the
newsletter was to keep students
who graduated and moved
away abreast of the happenings
at the church, as well as the

To introduce To Live Again,
A New Beginning to the pub-
lic, the Bay Street Church of
God in Christ will sponsor "An
Evening With Rhett" in which
the author will read excerpts
from the book and sign copies
of his book.

Zombies from the Beyond,
a musical comedy by James
Valcq, continues through Nov.
2 on the stage of the Garden
Theatre in downtown Winter
Garden. It is a campy celebra-
tion of the American ideals
and foibles of the Eisenhower
era in a tone that offers parody
and satire while closely fol-
lowing the structural form of
grade-B space paranoia films
that were popular during the
1950s.


Watch out, men; Zombina
is coming to enslave all of
you male Earthlings.
The show is set at the fic-
tional Milwaukee Space Cen-
ter in 1955.
Produced by Jester Theater
Company, Zombies continues
Thursday, Friday and Satur-
day at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2
p.m. Tickets are $22 ($18 for
seniors and students). Go to
www.wgtheatre.org for more
information.

Oakland's
beginnings
When Speer lived in
Oakland, it was a loosely
designated area between Lake
Apopka and John's Lake and
two or three miles east and
west. (In 1926, the town limits
stretched from Killarney to
Tildenville, but town officials
de-annexed more than 800
acres in 1959 because the
town couldn't afford to serve
the area.)
The first post office was
established in 1860. It closed
in 1867, only to reopen 10
years later.
In 1886, the railroad system
was extended through the area,
bringing with it a wave of new
residents. By 1887, officials


ONP memberships
The Oakland Nature Preserve
invites new members to join
on one of five different levels:
student or youth ($10); individual
($35); family ($50); sponsor
($75); or corporate ($125).
Send checks payable to ONP
to Oakland Nature Preserve, P.O.
Box 841, Oakland 34760. For
details, call ONP at 407-905-
0094.


(Continued from 1A)


were eager to incorporate the
town. Peter A. Demens was
elected the first mayor.
The town's economy
plummeted before the turn of
the century following a series
of devastating circumstances:
a fire that wiped out the
downtown business district,
an 1895 freeze that killed
the citrus industry and the
railroad's decision to cease
operations in the area because
of a decline in business.
Though the town's
industrial lifeline was severed,
the community prevailed.
It maintained a slow but
steady climb as churches and
businesses made Oakland
their home.
The Angebilt Lodge (also
called the Oakland Hotel) was
built in 1910 on what is now
Tubb Street. Two years later,
Oakland Avenue was paved.
Florida Telephone
Corporation granted the town
a 20-year franchise in 1925,
the same year two flushing
toilets were installed in a new
rest house at the town dock.
When the Great Depression
hit in the- '30s, Oakland
suffered greatly. It closed
and reopened its bank several
times, borrowed money from
a Winter Garden bank and
eventually opened an account
in Ocoee. The Town Council
held relatively few meetings
because there was no money
to spend.
In 1949 by now, much
better financial times the
town added a roller-skating
rink in Speer Park and a
flashing stoplight at Highway
438.
The Tavares & Gulf depot


closed in 1950 and was torn
down in '54.
A full-time police officer
was hired for the town in 1969.
Five years later, the Oakland
Volunteer Fire Department
was authorized.
In 1972, all the town streets
were renamed to honor
longtime residents. Prior to
this time, streets and avenues
were designated by numbers.
In 1993, then-Mayor Jake
Voss enacted the town's first
property tax in 60 years.
A year later, the West
Orange Trail snaked through
the town.
Construction began on
Oakland Pointe in 1996. This
was the first of numerous
subdivisions in Oakland and
sparked a huge population
increase.
In the, next decade, the
town would enact the
Gateway Corridor Ordinance,
building a new Town Hall
and adjacent meeting hall,
enter an agreement with the
Oakland Nature Preserve,
open Oakland Avenue Charter
School, rediscover the long-
forgotten original Oakland-
Tildenville Colored Cemetery
in an overgrown thicket near
Highway 50, construct two
new water plants and join
forces with ONP to organize
the Oakland Heritage Festival
to celebrate their "natural and
cultural heritage."

Windermere student returns
from LDS mission trip


Windermere resident Stef-
fanie Warren recently returned
from serving for 18 months
on a full-time mission for The
Church of Jesus Christ of Lat-
, ter-day Saints. Warren volun-
tarily, and at her own expense,
spent her time in considerable
community service inviting
people to live a Christ-like life
and teaching them how to have
peace, love and joy in their lives
as they live these principles.
"Families and people with
broken lives and broken spir-
its are healed through the
message we share. We go out
planning on serving the Lord
and blessing His children, but
in the end it is ourselves who
have changed, been served and
have been blessed," Warren ex-
plained.
"If you knew that God still
speaks to man; that He and His
Son, Jesus Christ, appeared to a
14-year-old boy, and once again
called a prophet (the same as
Moses and Noah) on the Earth
could you remain silent and
not share that knowledge?"
The Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-day Saints has many,


different kinds of missions.
Mission activities include
proselytizing; providing hu-
manitarian and educational
support; teaching English in
many foreign lands; helping
orphanages; assisting in world
health efforts; building wells
and infrastructures throughout
the world; taking food, supplies
and people to help in disaster
areas; and many more. This is
a worldwide church, and many
hundreds of thousands of mem-
bers serve in these various ca-
pacities at their own expense
and time. To learn more about
these missions, go to www.lds.
org and click on missionary op-
portunities.
Warren now plans on return-
ing to school in Gainesville and
going to veterinary school for
equine medicine. She spoke
about her mission experiences
Oct. 19 at the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints,
3001 S.Apopka-VinelandRoad
in Orlando.
Warren is a West Orange
High School graduate and the
daughter of Gayle and Lloyd
Warren of Windermere.

Garden Club learns about tropical fruits
The Windermere Garden Club held its monthly meeting
Oct. 9 at Town Hall, and Garden Club member Pam Flesher
was the featured speaker. She talked about tropical plants
from avocados to tamarinds. Members learned about the
plants and tasted them all. Some of the fruits were grown
in Flesher's backyard. In the presentation, Flesher pointed
out how fortunate Floridians are to have all these tropical
fruits at their fingertips. The club is grateful to Flesher for
her presentation.

Family history conference to focus on genealogy


By Victoria Laney

The 12th annual Central
Florida Family History Con-
ference features more than
16 classes for everyone from
beginners to experts. The free
conference will be from 9 a.m.
to 3 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 25,
at the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints, 3001 Apop-
ka-Vineland Road, where there
is a family history library.
Paul Smart and Daniel Pof-
fenberger will demonstrate
some the biggest Internet sites
available to genealogical re-
searchers. They helped create
FamilySearch.org, the world's
largest free family history In-
ternet site, and are traveling
from Salt Lake City, Utah, to
speak at the conference again
this year.
"I was impressed as I talked
to people at the conference, last
year. Many were just beginning
to look up information on their
families, and they came away
from the conference with valu-
able names, dates and other in-
formation," Smart said.
Poffenberger will speak
about "Finding the Fathers of
Illegitimate Children." He will
also tell how to get the most
out of family history library
resources. He and Smart are


accredited experts on Britain,
and they will give advice on
research in Ireland, Scotland,
Wales and England.
Smart is considered a world
authority in British geneal-
,.ogy.
"As a worldwide speaker, he
brings down-to-earth, easy-to-
understand methods of finding
ancestors in these countries,"
said Karen L. Jorgensen, con-
ference chair.
Paul Enchelmayer of the
Central Florida Genealogical
Society will talk about diffi-
cult family situations when he
presents "Deceptive Ancestor
What to Do When the Dates
Don't Jive." In another class,
he will tell people about "Re-
storing, Preserving and Filing
Family Photos."
Dr. Fran Frierson from Va-
lencia Community College
will present "DNA and Its
Powerful Impact on Family
History."
The Orange County Library
System will showcase its new
resources for family history
research.
Debbe Hagner of Vero
Beach will talk about German
origins and Ellis Island and
Castle Garden Immigration.
Betty Jo Stockton of Wind-
ermere will tell how to record


oral histories from relatives.
Pam Cooper, also of Vero
Beach, will present "Find-
ing Gems of Long Lost Facts
from Military Records" And
,"Searching Newspapers On-
line for Valuable Informa-
tion."
"Our hope is that as people
come, they will find greater
tools to help them find their
roots. Working on one's fam-
ily history brings personal sat-
isfaction, and we want to help
them be more effective. With
four classes going simultane-
ously every hour from 9 a.m.
to 3 p.m., there is a wealth of
information to learn," Jorgan-
sen said.
Many people think they have
to travel to Salt Lake City to
do genealogical research, but
trained volunteers and other
resources are available to help
people. The library and confer-
ence are non-denominational
and open to everyone, said
Joan Allen of Dr. Phillips, one
of the volunteers.
To ensure that enough hand-
outs are available, conference
organizers request registration
at www.familyhistoryconfer-
ence.org or 407-298-1493. To

of the Family events, click on

His reasons for wanting to
serve in the State Legislature?
"I want to provide strong
leadership to address issues
important to Central Florida,"
he said. "The state is headed
in the wrong direction, and my
opponent has not been an ef-
fective representative for the
district." He also noted that he
waited to be a strong advocate
for working men and women
and small business.
He feels he is the best-quali-

city of St. Paul in Virginia and
served as a community organizer
with the United Mine Works Lo-
cal 2856. He is also a five-year
volunteer with Toys for Tots.
He earned an associate degree
from Southwest Virginia Com-
munity College and bachelor's
degrees in both business admin-
istration and political science
from Christopher University in
Newport News, Va.
When asked why he wants to
serve in the State Legislature,
Christian replied: "As part of
this community, I have seen
my city, my county and my state
go down the wrong path for too
long. After this last legislative
cycle where the state saw fit
to gut education spending, not
address the homeowner's insur-
ance crisis and let light rail and
commuter rail get denied to the
people of Central Florida again,
I decided that someone had to
go to Tallahassee and speak up
for working families and our
community."
What makes him the best
candidate, in his view, is the

and utilities," and he wants "to
save our neighborhoods from
foreclosures without raising
taxes."
As far as the most important
issues, he puts the state budget
at the top of the list: "If elected,
I want to study the budget and
see where we can make cuts to
provide more funding for edu-
cation, economic development
and public safety. Currently,
the state has funding for hous-
ing through the State Housing
Initiative Partnership (SHIP)
raised through an increase of
the documentary stamps tax on
real estate transactions. These
funds were to be used for hous-
ing, but the Legislature has
capped the amount for hous-
ing and raided the trust fund for
general revenue. These funds
need to be put back into hous-
ing to provide education and
pre-purchase counseling for
first-time homebuyers so they
can buy and keep their homes.
SHIP funds can also be used
for new housingand rehab of
some of the foreclosures to
help stabilize the real estate
market."


fact that he has a background
of service and a desire to look
out for people and not special
interests.
"My experience in serving
my country and something
greater than myself instilled in
me a belief that we all must fight
for the values that we hold dear,
and that is our duty to do what
we can to make our community
better," he said.
Christian, in discussing the
most important issues need-
ing to be addressed, listed the
economy, education and trans-
portation infrastructure in Cen-
tral Florida.
"The only way we can work
to begin to repair our economy
is to help people and businesses
together to ensure that people
can make money and spend that
on labor. For example, I support
creating a three-month morato-
rium on home foreclosures and
working to make sure that peo-
ple and their mortgage compa-
nies can work out a way to pay
their mortgage at a lower price
so that people can stay in their


Also among his goals, if
elected, is to work with the
Florida prosecuting attorneys',
public defenders' and criminal
defense lawyers' associations
and law-enforcement agen-
cies to change criminal de-
fense procedure to allow law-
enforcement officers to testify
in depositions in their agency
headquarters via video instead
of the downtown courthouse.
"We should make better use
of technology to save money
and cut crime," he said. "Apo-
pka, Ocoee and Winter Garden
police officers should not spend
an hour of their day traveling
to and from downtown costing
gas and time off patrol from
neighborhoods."
In addition, he wants insur-
ance companies to open up
their rate models to justify 50
percent rate increase in home
insurance premiums like All-
state and State Farm.
"I think [the insurance com-
panies] have made bad real
estate and Wall Street invest-
ments, and they want the ho-
meowners to pay for their bad
choices," he said.

homes and mortgage companies
can continue to make a profit,"
he said.
He also supports bringing in
new industry to the state, such
as those who are developing al-
ternative energy resources, and,
he said, Florida must do a better
job of educating its children, in-
cluding providing students and
teachers the resources they need
to succeed.
Christian is a strong propo-
nent of fixing roads and high-
ways and creating a light rail
and commuter rail system and
expanding bus routes to accom-
modate more riders: "This will
not only help people get around
quicker, cleaner and easier,
but it will also create jobs for
bus drivers, train drivers and
construction and maintenance
crews."
If elected, he said, his only
goal would be "to serve as
a voice for the people of my
district, the people of Central
Florida and to try and make
their lives a little better and a
little easier."

Board, former president of
the Apopka Chamber of Com-

also has served on the board of
the Orlando Marine Institute,
a school for troubled children;
the Community Action Board;
and the Habitat for Humanity
Board, as well as twice chairing
the Golden Eagle Luncheon for
Boy Scouts.
"Being involved in all of
these organizations has helped
me to better understand the
needs of people in District 38,"
he said.
Nelson is running for his sec-

He is a graduate of Florida

his law degree from Vanderbilt

Eisnaugle told The West Or-

he cares deeply about the state

he can provide the leadership

"I also serve on the Natural
Resource Council because I
understand how important our
environment is and I am pas-
sionate about making [Florida]
a better place," he told The West
Orange Times.
"My goals have not changed
from my first campaign to this
one," he added. "My two main
focuses are technical training
for kids who are not planning
on attending college and insur-
ance reforms. During the last
session, I was able to pass a bill

one part applied math and two
parts English. These test results

solutions," he said.
He feels he is the best choice
for District 40 because he was
born and raised here and knows
that Florida faces new and
unique challenges.
"I believe that my degrees
in economics and business
uniquely qualify me to fight
for measures that will stimulate
our economy," he said. "As a
grassroots volunteer, I have
worked hard in the community
and would like to use this same
work ethic to represent the peo-
ple of District 40 in the Florida

The most pressing issue facing
Florida, he said, is the economy:
"Getting our economy going
again involves attracting higher-
paying jobs, making Florida the
leader in the search for energy
independence, reducing juve-
nile and gang-related crime in
Central Florida and improving
education."


In response to the question
of what his goals would be, if
he becomes a state representa-
tive, Eisnaugle responded: "If
elected, I will work to strengthen
our economy by cutting red tape
for small businesses and bring-
ing high-paying jobs to Central
Florida. I will also seek to make
Florida the leader in our nation's
search for energy independence
and the development of alterna-
tive fuels. I will address violent
crime by promoting reforms to
the juvenile justice system and
provide more tools for law en-
forcement's fight against gangs.
Finally, I will work to improve
education by making funding
a priority and continuing to
improve accountability in our
schools."
Among Eisnaugle's endorse-
ments are those of six state rep-
resentatives: Andy Gardiner,
Steve Precourt, Frank Attkisson,
Bryan Nelson, Chris Doworth
and David Simmons.I

On the insurance front, he
said: "My goal is to make sure
Central Florida consumers are
not saddled with extra fees and
assessments because of losses
on our coastlines. In the insur-
ance committee last year, it was
determined that a Category 3
storm in Dade County could
cost every household in Central
Florida more than $15,000 over
the next 15-20 years."
Nelson said other issues im-

the completion of both West
Colonial Drive and the Wekiva
Parkway.
"We are also working on a
bill for high school students to
have a financial literacy mod-
ule as part of their required

also hoping to pass a bill that
will save Florida taxpayers $50
million over five years by us-

Windermere

during the Windermere Town
Council meeting Oct. 13.
Galura described stormwater
projects at the intersections of
Eighth Avenue and Forest Street
and at Seventh Avenue and John-
son Park that will be put out for
bids by the end of the year.
The work is considered a STAG
(State Tribal Assistance Grant)
project because it will proceed
with $192,400 in grant funding
from the federal government ad-
ministered by the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency. The
town share of the grant is 51.9
percent.
The necessary environmental
resource permit has been applied
for, and the project designs are
complete. As soon as permits are
in place, the town will advertise
for bids.
At Eighth and Forest and along
dirt Main Street, a series of swales
and Stormceptors will be installed
to reduce localized flooding and
the drainage infrastructure at the
intersection will be replaced. The
work will also reduce erosion and
sediment loading .into the Butler
Chain.


S- (Continued from 1A)

The Butler Chain is a series of
11 lakes connected by natural wa-
terways and canals. It is also the
headwaters of the Everglades. In
recognition of its excellent water
quality and as a habitat for wild-
life, the chain also was designated
an Outstanding Florida Water in
1983.
The project at Seventh and
Johnson Park will include re-
grading the existing pond and
raising the berm one foot to in-
crease its retention volume. Some
landscaping will be removed, as
well as a wood retaining wall
near Lake Bessie. The work will
also address improving the poor
condition of the existing drain-
age infrastructure along Seventh
Avenue and at Sixth Avenue and
Lee Street to improve the overall
drainage collection system.
The town will hold informa-
tional meetings with all of the
affected property owners prior
to beginning the work. These two
projects will be done by Septem-
ber 2009.
Galura also explained upcom-
ing drainage projects at First
Avenue and Oakdale Street and


at Twelfth Avenue and Oakdale.
Both are part of the Hazard Miti-
gation Grant Program, funded by
FEMA and administered by the
U.S. Department of Emergency
Management. These grants were
awarded to the town following
the significant hurricane damage
sustained in 2004.
The town is preparing to award
contracts for these two projects.
All of the necessary easements
have been secured.
The project at First and Oakdale
will reduce flooding and sediment
loading into the Butler Chain
during and after significant rain
events. New pipes and the instal-
lation of a flow gate are part of
the work. The gate will prevent
flow reversal of water coming
from Lake Down when flooding
occurs. The work will also ad-
dress flooding problems nearby at
Down Court and Down Drive.
During the hurricanes of 2004,
the area around Twelfth and
Oakdale experienced significant
flooding. Property owners expe-
rienced standing water in the rear
yards, which made septic systems
and air-conditioning equipment
inoperable. Currently, there is no
drainage infrastructure within the
lots and minimal infrastructure

along Oakdale. The existing pipes
are in poor condition and direct
stormwater flow into Lake Bes-
sie. The planned improvements
will include new swales and pipes
and a dedicated retention pond to
treat stormnnwater before it enters
the lake.
All of the necessary permits
and easements have been ob-
tained. Once the town receives
the FEMA funds, bids will be
accepted and contracts awarded
to begin the work.
The town will also hold meet-
ings with the affected residents
prior to commencing work.
Project Manager John Fitz-
gibbon provided an update for
the council on the six drainage
projects currently under way.
This work is part of a 319 Non-


point Source Management Grant
through the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection.
Fitzgibbon said five of the
projects are substantially com-
plete and work at Lake Street and
Fifth Avenue, the largest project,
started Oct. 1 with 50 percent of
the pipe now in the ground.
He said the extensive drainage
and intersection improvement
work is "more treacherous than
most," and work crews are "very
careful." It involves pumping
groundwater offsite, working
around trees and re-establishing
the road and grade at the end of
each day. The project should be
done by the second week of No-
vember.
Fitzgibbon also reported that
the repaving of North Oakdale is


scheduled for Nov. 5-6.
On another matter, Town Attor-
ney Tom Wilkes told the council
he had "good news" the town
had reached an agreement to ac-
quire the final piece of property
required to create a traffic circle
near the elementary school.
Wilkes said town resident Ken
Ward, the agent for the property
owner, had accepted the town of-
fer to purchase the property at its
appraised value, $12,500, plus his
attorney's fees. Wilkes said the le-
gal costs could be $4,500.
The council voted unanimously
to accept the offer with a cap of
$5,000 for the attorney's fees,
and authorizing the mayor or
any council member to execute
the documents for a closing Qct.

Panthers win 4th straight over rival Titans


Demetrius Hart's 57-
yard touchdown run with less
than two minutes left in the
game capped a thrilling 27-
19 victory over host Olympia
last Friday, and marked the Dr.
Phillips Panthers' fourth con-
secutive win over their rival.
Hart finished with 262 all-
purpose yards (197 rush-
ing, 22 receiving, 43 re-
turning) and registered a
fourth-down, game-sealing
tackle on Olympia's final
drive.
On the game's open-
ing drive, junior linebacker
Charles Favors gave the Pan-


others great field position, re-
covering an Olympia fumble
at their 20-yard line. Marvin
Ford was the workhorse early
on, putting DP on the board
first with a seven-yard touch-
down reception from Nico
Ranieri.
Following a scoreless sec-
ond quarter, both teams picked
up the pace on offense. After
Olympia forced a DP punt, the
Titans drove 92 yards on eight
plays to tie the game at 7-7
with a one-yard TD plunge by
quarterback Trevor Siemian.
The Panthers responded
with a clock-eating, 19-play


Olympia's Parrish Walker fights for yardage against a DP tac


drive covering 80 yards in
just over seven minutes that
culminated with Ford's four-
yard touchdown run for a
14-7 lead. Olympia wasted
no time answering, though,
with Tony Grandison taking
the ensuing kickoff 74 yards
for a touchdown. An exces-
sive-celebration penalty, fol-
lowed by a false start, moved
the extra-point attempt back
to the 29-yard line, however,
and DP defensive end Victor
Gray broke through the line to
block the kick and keep Dr.
Phillips ahead 14-13.
The Panthers got right back
to work on
their subse-
quent drive.
From their
own 27, Hart
and Ford car-
ried for 47
total yards
to set up a
15-yard pass
from Ran-
ieri to Kenny
Shaw inside
the Olympia
S red zone.
Hart took the
handoff on
k the next play
and raced
untouched
for a 10-yard
score, and the
lead grew to
21-13.

yards down to the DP 31, and
Tyson Pryor punched it in six
plays later to cut the deficit
to 21-19. The two-point con-
version pass was broken up by
Emanuel McGowan, and DP
held on to the slim lead.
Olympia's home fans still
had reason to cheer, though,
as the Titans recovered the on-
side kick with 3:22 remaining
to play. Two runs amounted
to four yards, and after an
incomplete third-down pass,
DP's Shaw batted away the
fourth-down pass to give the
Panthers possession at their


own 43-yard line. Hart came
through with his biggest run of
the night on the second hand-
off of DP's next possession.
Hart cut to his right, followed
a devastating block from Mar-
vin Ford, slipped outside and
raced down the sideline 57
yards for the touchdown for
a 27-19 lead. The extra-point
attempt sailed wide left, and
Olympia still had life with
1:40 left on the clock.
From their own 39, fac-
ing second and 10, Olympia
broke a nine-yard run and
gained another 15 yards on a


DP penalty to give them a first
down at the DP 37. Siemian
rolled out to his right on the
next play, but defensive end
Michael Ducre broke into the
backfield and sacked him for
an 11-yard loss. Three plays
later, on fourth and eight, Hart
came up with the game-ending
tackle to clinch the victory.
DP improved to 5-1 on the
season and will travel to Free-
dom next Friday to resume
district play. Olympia fell to
4-2 and must travel to Apopka
this Friday for a tough district
challenge.


Titans run Furman Invitational
The Olympia boys and girls cross country teams traveled to Furman University in Green-
ville, S.C., to attend a motivational presentation by Olympic bronze medalist David Oliver

Winter Garden 5K run/walk scheduled for Nov. 15


Knights lose at home to Evans


Ocoee High mounted a
comeback attempt at home, but
it proved to be too little too late
last Friday as the Knights lost
20-14 to Evans.
Trailing 20-0 entering the fi-
nal quarter, Ocoee capitalized
on a pair of fumbles to bring
the game within reach. Quarter-
back Ryan Wilder put Ocoee on


the scoreboard with a 24-yard
touchdown run. Minutes later,
tailback D.J. Gary punched it
in from the one-yard line. The
Knights went for an onside
kick, but Evans recovered to
clinch the victory in the final
moments.
Ocoee (1-5) shot itself in
the foot earlier in the game


by failing,to cash in on good
field possession. Three times
the Knights sniffed the Evans
red zone but came away with
a missed field goal and two
turnovers.
Wilder finished with 146
yards on 10 of 15 passing, plus
66 yards and one touchdown
passing.


The annual city of Winter
Garden 5K run/walk will take

Spring Lake


Whispering Oak


Several hundred families came out for the annual Whispering Oak Elementary Hoedown
on Oct. 10 to enjoy a barbecue dinner, games, a DJ, dunk tank, inflatables, face- and nail-
painting, family pictures and other fun activities.


SAC meeting
Whispering Oak Elementary's
School Advisory Council will


meet Thursday, Nov. 13, at 6 p.m.
Parents, teachers and members
of the community are invited and

-- Citrus


encouraged to attend.
For more information, call the
school at 407-656-7773.


Students in Ms. Heckman's 4th-grade science class at Spring Lake Elementary did a
directed inquiry lesson on how to observe a mineral wearing away. The students in 4th
period filled their jars with chalk and rocks and shook the jar for 1 minute to observe
changes. Next, they filled their jars halfway with water and continued the experiment
with new chalk and the same rocks. Pictured observing the changes are: Tommy Wilson,
Jeremiah Colon, Danny Barrigan and Devin Hayden. In addition, Spring Lake Elementary
will host its Fall Festival this Friday, Oct. 24, from 5-7 p.m.


Windermere


Mrs. McClure's kindergarten class at Citrus Elementary participated in Jumpstart's Read
for the Record. The program connects young people and adults in the early education
experiences that help children thrive. Mrs. Zimmerman (Sophie's mom) read the book
'Corduroy' by Don Freeman. McClure's class joined others in the U.S. by helping to set
a world record of the largest shared reading experience.


Foundation Academy


Windermere Elementary's biggest fund-raiser, the Go Take A Hike Walk-A-Thon, was
held Oct. 3. This was an easy way to raise money for the school and get some energy
out of the students. OCPS has been working to increase health and wellness throughout
the schools, so this was a great fund-raiser. The entire school was able to participate,
even though they did not have a pledge sheet. The students were encouraged not to go
door-to-door but to call up relatives, friends and neighbors for pledges. The weather was
great, and the children had a wonderful time. Volunteers were on hand to take pledge
sheets and hand out drinks. This year the Walk-A-Thon was on the same day as Spirit
Week's Fanatic Fan Friday, so, the students were able to run around showing off their
favorite team.

Enjoying Spirit Day at Foundation Academy are (1-r): (front row) Kyle Donahue, Kate Hol-
dren, Jade Laun, Deborah Holt and Leah Williams; and (back row) Emily Jones, David

Mrs. Duff, the science lab teacher at Westbrooke Elementary, ,recently conducted a
schoolwide experiment called 'Are you a Square?' (This asks if one's arm span is equal
to the length of the body.) Pictured with Duff is Jody Silvester's kindergarten class. It is
Cole Quitter's turn to get measured.

Homecoming week
Foundation Academy had
a very special Homecoming
week. The festivities began on
each day with a different theme.
Monday was Hollywood Day,
and students dressed as their
favorite movie star. Tuesday
was Tacky Day, and Wednes-
day was Skittle Day. '70's Day
was featured on Thursday and
showed the creativity of many
of the students with their psy-
chedelic T-shirts and funky hair-
styles. Friday is always Spirit
Day, and the students showed
their school spirit in many
unique ways.
A pep rally was held on both
campuses to make sure ev-
eryone was ready for the big
football game at Walker Field.
The Lions played the Vanguard
School of Lake Wales and came
away with the biggest victory in
the history of FA football 55-
0. During halftime the Home-
coming court was presented,


and seniors Michael McBride,
and April Fleming (lifelong
Winter Garden resident) were
crowned king and queen.
Weekend to Roar, FA's larg-
est event each year hosted by
the Parent-Teacher Organiza-
tion, was held at the south cam-
pus on Saturday to coincide
with Homecoming festivities.
Along with the inflatable games,
rides and food, many commu-
nity groups were represented.
The Diabetes Society screened
more than 60 people checking
blood-sugar levels and provid-
ing valuable educational- mate-
rials.
Other groups included a live
radio show hosted by Z88.3,
"Saving Young Hearts," Florida
Hospital Centra Care and the
Miracle Children's Network.
Along with the activities for the
younger children, the middle
school and high school stu-
dents served by helping with
the games and rides. A silent


auction helped to raise more
than $18,000 for the school.
This year each class was as-
signed a theme, and then fami-
lies were asked to donate to the
basket.
Sunday evening topped off
the week with a dedication of
the new multi-purpose gym that
recently opened. The gym has
two basketball courts, three vol-
leyball courts and a stage for
drama and weekly chapel. This
facility will allow the school to
host AAU, district and regional
tournaments.
Along with giving praise for
all of the blessings, the school
took this opportunity to honor
some of the donors who have
helped the school to develop
the south campus and others
who have given many years of
service in this ministry. Founda-
tion Academy thanks all of those
who have helped see the vision
and mission in order to make
the south campus a reality.

Montverde Academy


Students in Montverde Academy's 7th- and 8th-grade
English classes had a veteran of the Vietnam and Gulf
wars as a guest speaker recently. Pictured are (1-r): Donna
Brodus-Forrest, English teacher; Warren Delmolino, dean
of the middle school; Joe Ayala, Vietnam veteran; and Eric
Pauli, middle school science teacher.


Special guest
Montverde Academy sev-
enth- and eighth-grade Eng-
lish classes are currently
working on reading and lit-
erature units. Recently Mrs.
Forrest's classes read two
stories entitled "Stop the
Sun" and "Zebra." Both were
about the Vietnam War.
The students researched
the history, reasons, statis-
tics and effects of this war.
As a class, they wanted to
know more about the veter-
ans who participated.
The stories the classes
read gave some first-hand
- accounts; however, to be
able to see and speak to
a a real person who went
through these experiences
would satisfy their curiosity
in a way that a book could
Snot.
Forrest had a friend who
works for Uni-Tech Corpora-
tion in Orlando. Uni-Tech is
an affiliate company of Lock-
L heed Martin that specializes
in the design, production
b and shipment of armed ser-
'j vice high-tech intelligence
Ai equipment.


The friend told her some
Vietnam veterans are em-
ployed with this company
and that Uni-Tech has a pro-
gram designed for schools
that involves sending out
some of their employees to
make presentations about
their experiences and the
positions they are currently
holding at Uni-Tech.
Joe Ayala, a supervisor
at Uni-Tech, accepted the
invitation to visit Montverde
Academy on his birthday.
He was a lieutenant in the
Marines and served in the
Vietnam and Gulf wars. He
is currently retired from ac-
tive duty, but he conducts
training sessions and still
visits Marine-training sites.
Ayala's presentation in-
creased the students' ap-
preciation for the men and
women in the military. For-
rest said she was glad to
know that they were able to
share the realities of war.
She added, "I have come
to find out that connecting
the past with the present will
only result in a positive fu-
ture."


Windermere Prep


Windermere Prep students Will Demko and Chris Pichardo
search for invertebrates in Halimeda algae found off the
Florida coast. The WPS 7th-graders recently.took part in a
3-day Laker Adventure at Sea Camp in the Florida Keys as
part of their earth science curriculum. While at the camp,
students explored sea life in its habitat during both the day
and at night, in addition to snorkeling coral reefs, dissect-
ing squid and learning about sea grasses and mangroves.

Crenshaw


Elementary students from the Crenshaw School had fun
learning safety issues from Officer Dawkins (pictured), Of-
ficer McLeod and the official safety robot, KC.


Central Florida Prep


Dr. Joel Garcia, a cardiologist from the Orlando Heart
Center, recently visited Central Florida Prep. The Montes-
sori classes have been studying the human body. Garcia
brought in a model of the heart and 2 stethoscopes so the
children could listen to each other's heartbeats. He also
spoke about heart-healthy foods and how to keep your
body strong.

Windermere Union -Legacy High- Ocoee High


Seven students from the
Legacy High forensics team
participated recently in the
1st NFCFL debate tourna-
ment of the 2008-09 season
held at Trinity Prep. Bryan
Wilder received a trophy for
being named Tournament
Champion in Lincoln Doug-
las Debate.


Dacia Bower from the University of Florida speaks to stu-
dents at OHS.


The pre-K4 classes at Windermere Union Preschool went on a field trip recently to the
fire station. The children had the opportunity to spray the fire hose, watch a puppet show
and tour the firehouse. They had fun learning fire safety and seeing what firefighters do.
Pictured in front of the fire truck is Mrs. Bittenbender's class.


West Orange High


West Orange High students recently hosted the 'Fields of Faith' event, joining thousands
of youth sharing their faith on athletic fields across America.


'Fields of Faith'
Students from West Orange
High joined thousands of oth-
er youth on athletic fields all
across America on Oct. 8 to
share their Christian faith with
fellow students during the fifth
annual "Fields of Faith" event.
This rapidly growing interde-
nominational outreach event
was held at more than 400 lo-
cations throughout the country
on the same day.
While many Christian rallies
are anchored to an entertainer
or professional speaker creat-
ing a spectator event, "Fields
of Faith" is structured as a
student-to-student ministry.
Peers invite their own .class-
mates and teammates to meet
on .their school's athletic field
to hear fellow students share
their testimonies, challenge
them to read the Bible and to
come to faith in Jesus Christ.
The growth of "Fields of
Faith" has been remarkable.
It began with 6,000 kids on 23
fields in Oklahoma, Texas and


Kansas in 2004. Three years
later, an estimated 75,000
students participated on 386
fields all across the country
during last year's events.
"Athletic fields provide a neu-
tral and familiar spot for stu-
dents to assemble," said Les
Steckel, FCA president and
a former NFL coach. "Many
nights are spent on those
fields cheering on local teams,
but on this particular night the
praise belongs to God."
While "Fields of Faith" has
its roots with FCA leadership,
the event is designed to in-
clude multiple national Chris-
tian organizations, ministries
and church denominations. A
local leadership team, primar-
ily of students, will determine
the program of each "Fields of
Faith" event.
More information about
"Fields of Faith" is available-at
www.FieldsofFaith.com.

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


"I am the vine; you are the branches.
If a man remains in me and I in him, he
will bear much fruit; apart from me you
can do nothing."
-John 15:5

I was watching TV the other night and hap-
pened to notice a popular fitness company
highlighting a guy in his forties in fabulous
shape. The mid-life bulge had melted away,
revealing six pack abs and anAtlas chiseled
chest that would shame most young men.
As I polished off the last of the chips, the'
urgency of getting back in shape became
painfully obvious. There I sat a humbled
member of the flabby majority. Most of us
want to look good, but we simply aren't
willing to pay the price.

When Christ spoke in terms of looking
good it was from the inside out. It's not that
God doesn't care about toned bellies and
firm posteriors, it just a matter of having
healthy priorities. Taking care of the spiri-
tual core trumps any other core that may


need our attention. The world doesn't em-
brace this way of thinking and it's evident
by the evening news.. .things are out well
out of control. When we bend our will,
towards Christ all the other aspects of our
life come into balance. Something good
begins to happen!

Christ doesn't simply want us to be better
versions of our old self...he wants to trans-
form us into new people. The fruit of this
new life is characterized by love, joy,
peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith-
fulness, gentleness, and self-control. Jesus
is not calling us to act out these qualities
but to actually become them. What would
the world look like if more of us started
abiding in Christ and stopped working so
hard at just looking and acting good? Most
of us aren't willing to pay the price, but
Christ already did....we just need to remain
in Him and let His spirit do the work with-
in us.
