Adult Literacy League champions Reading Reindeer drive Photo by KathyAber


The Adult Literacy League donated more than 150 new
books to Reading Reindeer on Monday and staffed a gift
wrapping station at Barnes and Noble in Winter Garden
Village on Saturday to support the book drive. Pictured
with the book donation (1-r) are Sherry Clark, family literacy
director; Jakita Allen, Americorps VISTA, project coordina-
tor; Joyce Whidden, executive director; Lisa Warren, com-
munity outreach manager; and Natasha Rogers, program


director. The Adult Literacy League has been a partner
with Reading Reindeer since 1998, providing family litera-
cy brochures and information on free one-on-one tutoring
that is included in each book distributed. The deadline for
donations is Dec. 18, and many books have already been
distributed. A final wrap-up will be featured in next week's
issue. For more photos from the Barnes and Noble book
fair, see page 3A.


Members also
voted not to sue
the county over
the Evans High
denial and not to
challenge the move
to an elected board
chairman.
By Mary Anne Swickerath
The new edition of the Or-
ange County School Board
wasted no time in tackling
big and controversial issues
at its first meeting last week.
Led by a motion from new
member Vicky Bell, the board
voted 4-3 to reverse the flip
of starting times of high and
middle schools that was put
in place this school year. Vot-
ing in favor of the reversal,
along with Bell, were fellow
newcomers Christine Curtis
Moore and Nancy Robbin-
son and Rick Roach. Voting
against the switch back were
Joie Cadle, Daryl Flynn and
Kate Gordon.
This vote means high
schools will once again be-
gin at .7:30 a.m. and middle
schools at 9:30 a.m. for the


2009-10 school term begin-
ning next August.
All three of the new mem-
bers of the board had run with
the promise of reversing the
earlier board's decision on
start times.
Superintendent Ron Block-
er had advised the former
board that with the extreme
budget shortfalls facing Or-
ange County Public Schools,
the switch in times was nec-
essary to save millions of dol-
lars.
The new board also decided
not to pursue litigation against
Orange County concerning
the Evans High School rezon-
ing and proposed relocation
near the Clarcona Rural Set-
tlement at the Evans Ninth-
Grade Center. The question
of Evan High's future will be
discussed at the board's Feb.
1 meeting. The board directed
Blocker to prepare a report
outlining the plans for build-
ing a new Evans.
In addition, the board voted
6 -1, with Gordon dissenting,
to end its legal challenge to
creating a School Board chair-
man who would be elected at-
large by Orange County vot-
ers. The new chairman will
take office in 2010.

have a backporch
funded and built by
the Rotary Club of
Windermere.
By Kathy Aberl

Town Hall is the place Win-
dermere residents have been
meeting, socializing and vot-
ing in since 1937.
Nowadays, when most of
Windermere's residents turn
out for annual gatherings like
the holiday social, held last
week, and the Fourth of July


'square-foot building is often
overly crowded.
By April, when the Rotary
Club of Windermere finishes
adding a back porch, towns-
people will have substantially
more space to mingle at lun-
cheons, meetings and other
functions.
The Rotary Club of Wind-
ermere is celebrating its 40th
anniversary next June, and
club members suggested giv-
ing a major gift to the town.
After consulting with the
Town Council on several
ideas, the concept of adding a
porch to the back of the build-


Rotarian Steve Fasen is
chairing the project for the
club, and he asked the council
to approve a preliminary plan
during its meeting last Tues-
day..
Two designs were originally
presented to the Historic Pres-
ervation Board and the Devel-
opment Review Board, and
one emerged as the favorite of
both groups. Canin and Asso-
ciates prepared the designs for
the club without charge.
The council unanimously ap-
proved the plan recommended

Sharing a ZIP
code with
Winter Garden is
causing problems
in the town.
By Amy Quesinberry
Oakland has no problem
with 34760; it's those newer
addresses with the 34787
ZIP code that are causing
the town to lose revenue.
The town has been dealing
with this discrepancy for two
years, and no one seems to
know how to solve it.
Town administrators have
sent yet another letter to
the United States Post Of-
fice hoping it can rectify the
problem, and the Town Com-
mission discussed the dilem-
ma at its regular meeting last
Tuesday.
Oakland has typically had
box delivery to the post of-
fice on Tubb Street. In 2000,
when nearly 200 homes were,
built in the town, the post of-
fice couldn't keep up with
the demand for boxes, so
the postal system allowed
home mail delivery to those
Oakland residents but with a
Winter Garden ZIP code.
And residents in Trail-
side, Johns Landing, Johns
Cove and Winter's Land-
ing have had mail problems
ever since. Mail is returned
to the sender and packages
canAit be delivered because


the physical address is rec-
' ognized as being in Winter
Garden, not Oakland. It also
creates aggravation for any-
one trying to locate a home
or business using MapQuest
online.
The biggest issue, .how-
ever, is with the state's Com-
munication Service Tax,
which uses ZIP codes as its
identifier. Money that's sup-
posed to go to Oakland is be-
ing given to Winter Garden
instead.
Town Manager Maureen
Rischitelli said she is calcu-
lating just how much money
that is.
In other business, the com-
missioners:
voted to hire VK Jensen
at a cost of $29,102 to install
13 fire hydrants in several in-
fill areas of historic Oakland.
This cost includes labor and
equipment only, and the town
will provide approximately
$52,000 in materials. Town
Engineer Larry Roberts said
he "highly recommends" the
Jensen company.
approved a hobby farm

ange Trail and north of Ma-
chete Trail near the Oakland

moved forward with the
proposal to place the new wa-

the Oakland Avenue Charter
School property. Last week's
action was a formality re-
quired in tie loan process.


Ocoee, Apopka partner with
employee health centers


By Mary Anne Swickerath
The cities of Ocoee and
Apopka each have their
own employee health care
centers, and beginning this
week the two cities are-part-
nering to share their facili-
ties. This means that Ocoee
and Apopka employees can
use either center for their
health care needs, depend-
ing on which center is most
convenient.
This groundbreaking ini-
tiative offers free and ac-
cessible medical care for
both cities' employees,
and Ocoee City Manager


Rob Frank said, "We are
very excited to work with
Apopka on this cost-saving
joint venture that will give
our employees greater flex-
ibility in scheduling their
doctor visits."
The Ocoee center, 17
Oakland St., is open Mon-
days from 8 a.m. to noon
and from 1-5 p.m. and
Wednesday from 10 a.m.
to 6 p.m. Apopka's center is
open on Tuesdays and Sat-
urdays from 8 a.m. to noon
and 1-5 p.m.

Adult Literacy League needs volunteers


The Adult Literacy League
needs volunteer tutors. One in
every five Central Florida adults
reads at or below the fifth-grade
level. From work-force issues
to crime to educating children,
adult literacy affects a range of
community issues.
SLiterate adults are more likely


to retain employment and build
a successful career. Adults who
take part in family literacy pro-
grams increase the pre-reading
skills of their children by more
than 70 percent.

Thank


You. I H


The sudden loss of our son, brother and father, Jerry Ragan, has
been almost more than we have been able to bear. The outpouring
of sympathy and understanding from our family, friends and the
community has been overwhelming and has made this most
difficult time a little easier to endure. A special thank you to
Reverend DeSha and the people who tried to revive him.
Please accept our sincere thanks to all of you for your cards, food,
flowers and your heartwarming support. We know you all loved
Jerry also, and it has meant more than we can say for you to share
your memories of him with us.
Thank you for everything you have done,
The Ragan Family

Special events at Winter Garden Village support Reading Reindeer
Winter Garden Village at Fowler Groves sponsored a special Snow Day event Saturday
afternoon, providing snow and sleds for children to enjoy the winter wonderland experi-
ence. Smiles lit up the faces of the children as they tried their best to make and throw
snowballs. Many were experiencing snow for the 1st time.


District adopts changes

to landscape irrigation rule


The St. Johns River Water
Management District"'s Gov-
erning Board has adopted rule
amendments that will tighten
the district's irrigation restric-
tions, effective March 8.
Under the amended rule,
landscape irrigation will be
limited to two days a week dur-
ing Daylight Saving Time and
one day a week during Eastern
Standard Time.
The amended rule also sets
the days of the week that resi-
dential and non-residential us-
ers can irrigate Wednesday
and Saturday for residential
landscape irrigation at odd
numbered addresses or no ad-
dress, Thursday and Sunday for
residential landscape irrigation
at even numbered addresses,
and Tuesday and Friday for


non-residential landscape irri-
gation during Daylight Saving
Time.
When Eastern Standard
Time is in effect, residential
landscape irrigation will be
limited to Saturdays at odd
numbered addresses or no ad-
dress, Sundays at even num-
bered addresses and Tuesdays
for non-residential landscape
irrigation.
In addition, no landscape ir-
rigation is allowed between 10
a.m. and 4 p.m., as in the cur-
rent rule.
Also, under the amended
rule, landscape irrigation will
be limited to 3/4 inch of wa-
ter per irrigation zone on each
day that irrigation occurs and
to no more than one hour per
irrigation zone on each day that


irrigation occurs.
To strengthen enforcement,
the rule encourages local gov-
ernments to adopt ordinances
that are consistent with the dis-
trict's rule.
The board also approved an
amendment to remove pro-
posed restrictions on the use of
reclaimed water and recycled
stormwater and gave permis-
sion to initiate a separate rule-
making process for those pro-
visions. Some reclaimed water
utilities have expressed concern
about those provisions in the
irrigation rule amendments,
mostly due to facility and in-
frastructure limitations.
For information about the
rule, go to the district's Web
site at www.sjrwmd.com/irri-
gationrule.

Reading Reindeer response is heartwarming


The friends of Reading Reindeer
are coming through again for the 11th
straight year.
Watching and waiting, as every
youngster knows, is a tedious pro-
cess.
Such is the scene at The West Or-
ange Times during Reading Reindeer
season.
As the deadline for delivering books
approaches, the staff wonders if read-
ers are going to donate enough books
to fulfill requests and when and how
they will appear.
Ocoee High School, always a strong
contributor, brought in 1,100 books on
Monday. These are going out to Toys
For Tots children in Ocoee and Winter
Garden this week.
The Times picked up three large
boxes from the Adult Literacy League,
also on Monday, and the West Orange
Neighborhood Center for Families
came in later that day to get 175 books
for its Christmas gala.
If the crowds last Saturday at Barnes
and Noble at Winter Garden Village


were any indication, the Reading Rein-
deer book fair should have been a great
success. The tallies will be available
later in the week.
The West Orange Chamber of Com-
merce and several local clubs are gath-
ering books this week, and the daily
mail delivery is bringing in a number
of checks to purchase more books.
A complete wrap-up of Reading
Reindeer will be featured in next
week's issue.
We have been repeatedly over-
whelmed by community support for
this literacy program.
The West Orange community has
embraced the importance of reading
to children, especially in their young-
est years, and recognized how vitally
important it is to everyone.
We are thrilled the tradition of night-
ly bedtime stories is being rekindled
and some of our littlest citizens now
have home libraries.
Our readers are the heart of this pro-
gram. We are grateful for your contin-
ued support.

I wish to tI
built ramps fc


By Tim Driscoll
Oakland Chief of Police
As economic times continue to affect us all,
it is anticipated that crime rates, especially
those related to property crimes, will rise. It is
important for citizens to take some very basic
precautions to help prevent themselves from
becoming a victim of crime.
Take the time to protect vulnerable areas of
your home and property. Lock and secure your
vehicles, even if in your garage. Activate your
car alarm if you have one. Never leave your
keys in your vehicle at any time, even if you
are just going to the post office.
Regarding your home and property, remem-
ber the 3 D's of burglary prevention:
Deter Sound residential security prac-
tices and good locks are a deterrent, as they
eliminate opportunity.
Detect Burglars want to avoid drawing
attention by making noise such as breaking


glass or smashing doors. Alarms detect a bur-
glar, but watchful neighbors alert law enforce-
ment of unusual activity.
Delay Delaying a burglar four minutes is
generally considered sufficient time to prevent
entry into a residence.
Burglars want to avoid being caught, so the
longer it takes to force open a door or window,
the greater the burglar's risk. Install deadbolts
on doors and attach strike plates with three-inch
screws that penetrate the frame, usb non-remov-
able hinges on outside hinged doors, use solid-
panel exterior doors, use dowels in sliding-glass
door tracks, check all porch and patio doors for
security, as well as yard lights, interior lights,
and landscaping. And be neighborly.
For more information about how not to be-
come a victim of burglary or theft, contact the
Oakland Police Department at 407-656-9797 or
stop by to pick up a crime prevention brochure
that will assist you during your home security
check.

These Times

Tree of memories


By Amy Quesinberry
I can recall many of my children's phases just
by opening a few Christmas storage containers
each December. That's because I decorate my
Christmas tree with among other things a
Hallmark ornament that represents each of them
for that year. Allison is 12, and Adam is 9, so we
have a tree full of memories. It's tradition in our
house for me to pull out the individual boxes
one by one and hand each one to the appropriate
child. Then once the piles are made, they can
open the boxes and start placing the fun, sweet,
silly or tacky ornaments on the green branches.
Some have been a big hit through the years
(like ballerinas and anything from a Disney film);
others were considered complete duds (like the
little knitted sweaters with the words "son" and
"daughter" on them). But I think Barbie and car-
toon characters definitely rule the tree Beauti-
ful blonde Barbie in her millennium dress, in her
ballerina's tutu, dancing in her castle; Woody
riding Bullseye and Stitch in his Elvis suit. My
tree has an Elvis and an MP3 player for my music
fan and a swimming Nemo and Mr. Incredible
for my movie fan.
There are two "baby's first Christmas" orna-
ments, plus rocking horses and teddy bears, a
soccer jersey, a flying I-arry Potter and Kaya
the American Girl. Last year, we added Snoopy
at a Beagle Scout campfire (for my Cub Scout)
and Bambi's friend Thumper (my Girl Scout's
nickname in her troop).
This year's Hallmark ornaments are a tree
of shoes for my nearly teen-aged daughter and

Kung Fu Panda for my animal-loving son.
And no parent's Christmas tree would be com-
plete without the paper plate ornaments from
preschool that seemed to get bigger each year.
More buttons, more ribbon, more glitter (can't
forget gobs of glitter). Blurry pictures, closed
eyes, a pouty expression. I love them all.
We can remember vacations past with our tree
when we hang up our Biltmore House and Alamo
ornaments and keepsakes from Keystone, the
Keys, Sugar Mountain, Hershey, Dollywood,
Chicago and NYC.
There are beautiful ornaments from friends and
a dog-bone ornament in memory of our family
pet, Carl. We even have a good-luck pickle and
a coconut monkey.
Two ornaments on my tree have always been
very special to me: a purple angel from my child-
hood and a beaded gold ball I bought on a trip
to New York City with Mother and one of my
sisters. We each have one, and the rule is we have
to call each other as we're hanging it on the tree.
Silly, yes. Tradition, that too.
This year, though, I've added another orna-
ment that will always be dear to me. A friend
decorated a little black box I recently received
and added in glitter the date of my en-
gagement.
Readers, what is your favorite ornament, and
why does it have special meaning? You have until
Monday to e-mail your responses to wotimes@

Please include your first and last name and city
of residence. We will print them in the Christmas
issue of The West Orange Times.

DEP suggests recycling old electronics


With the holiday shopping
season upon us, the Florida
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection (DEP) is urg-
ing Floridians to recycle old
electronics, keeping them out
of landfills and protecting
Florida's natural resources.
"Recycling televisions and
other electronics allows for
the recovery of electronic
components that contain lead
and other toxic materials,"
said Mary Jean Yon, DEP di-
rector of waste management.
"Recycling is good for the en-
vironment and the reuse of re-
sources makes good economic
sense."
To prevent an influx of
electronic waste in Florida's
landfills, DEP is encourag-
ing consumers to look for
ways to recycle unwanted


televisions. There are many
options to recycle unwanted
televisions at no cost to most
consumers; including donat-
ing working televisions to a
charitable organization offer-

Windermere's '09
Treebute to feature
international tree-
climbing event Jan.
17.
By Kathy Aber

Why are trees and urbanizing
forests so important in this day
and age? What can every hom-
eowner do in his or her backyard
to make the neighborhood, city
and country a safer and healthier
place?
The Windermere Tree Board is.
hoping to answer these and other
questions about the importance of
trees and preserving urban forests
at its annual Treebute and Arbor
Day observances in January.
Windermere was recently hon-
ored with Florida's Tree City of
the Year Award for its efforts in
presenting educational programs
for citizens and making strides to
protect the town's tree canopy -
a.$33-million asset.
The town started its tree pres-
ervation efforts by adopting a tree
ordinance in 1992 and forming
the Tree Board two years later. Its
efforts have been continuously
recognized. For the past 14 years,
Windermere has been named a
Tree City USA.
To celebrate its 15th year, the
Tree Board has planned a three-
day tree festival.
The annual Florida Arbor
Day tree planting will'take place
Thursday, Jan. 15, at 10 a.m. in
Town Square. The Windermere
Garden Club is sponsoring
the tree planting, and students
from Windermere Elementary
School and Windermere Union
Preschool will participate in the
program.
On Friday, Jan. 16, there will
be an all-day aerial-rescue edu-
cation program presented by
North American Training Solu-
tions. The free program includes
rescue training and arboriculture
instruction that qualifies as con-
tinuing education credits for
arborists. Local firefighters are
invited to come out and critique
the rescue techniques.
Its fifth annual Treebute will
take place Saturday, Jan. 17, from
10 a.m-4 p.m. in Town Square.
This year's Treebute theme is
focused on fostering education,
appreciation and care for the lo-
cal urban forest.
A tree-climbing competition
called Geezers in Treezers will
begin at 8 a.m. This is a contest
for climbers over 40 years old to
compete in five areas, vying for
the Lorax Cup.
Windermere hosted the climb-
ers last year, as well, but this year
Geezers in Treezer has become
an international event. A maxi-
mum of 25 climbers have already
registered. They come from all
over the United States, Canada


why tr

and the United Kingdom.
"Not only is it so fun to watch
these skilled professionals move
through the trees but the public at
large has the opportunity to speak
directly to the arborists and learn
from the experts," said Janet Ma-
land, Tree Board chairman.
"I want all of America to de-
velop an appreciation for the
amazing green resources that
surround us and improve our
daily lives."
Scotty Olson of Arbor Vision
Tree Service is one of the judges.
He started his involvement with
the Treebute three years ago by
setting up a kids climb, along
with a climbing and pruning
demonstration to promote proper
tree care and safety.
Olson said the 2009 Treebute
will be a full-fledged interna-
tional contest. "
"The current female foot-lock
record holder from the U.K. is
participating," said Olson.
Using women's rules estab-
lished by the International So-
ciety of Arboriculture, climb-
ers, both men and women, will
compete in five categories: throw
line, foot-lock, work climb, aerial
rescue and belay speed climb.
In the aerial rescue, climb-
ers are challenged to rescue a
160-pound mannequin from a
tree to the ground in seven min-
utes.
To win the speed-climb cate-
gory, climbers scramble to reach
.and ring a bell suspended high in
a tree as quickly as possible.
"We do this just for the love of
trees," said Olson.
In addition, to the climbing
contest on Saturday, there will
be interactive demonstrations,
hands-on tree education, enter-
tainment, food and games, and
town residents can take home a
free tree to plant in their yards.
Event sponsorships are available
via e-mail to treeboard34786@
aol.com or by calling Maland at
407-876-4882.
Maland said she hopes .the
Treebute will show other mu-
nicipalities how trees make the
world a safer and cleaner place
to live.
Florida has a specialty license
plate to help save the tree en-
vironment. It is available from
Florida Tag Offices. To learn
more about the license plates

By Kathy Aber
How creative could you be
if money wasn't an issue? is the
premise for a new book by Wind-
ermere resident Rick DiBiasio.
DiBiasio is a certified financial
planner and currently manages the
Raymond James office at 3704
Winter Garden Vineland Road in
Winter Garden.
He describes himself as a
"square peg in a round Wall Street
hole" emphasizing he's not a
traditional financial planner.
"I don't typically speak or dress

induividUals, DiBlasio has written
his first book, The Affluent Artist,
which was released in Novem-
ber.
In the book, he challenges
imaginative and inventive people
of all professions to use their cre-
ativity to understand and achieve
financial freedom.
The Affluent Artist is a fun and
easy-to-understand guide for
people too busy painting, sculpt-
ing, singing, writing or dreaming
told The to get serious about finances and
recent in- strategies to accumulate wealth.
financial "Whether you've been learn-
ing to train dolphins for SeaWorld,
working as a Broadway dancer
or as an Imagineeer for Disney,
hL chances are you've been learning
'ci about your craft, not about per-
sonal finance," said the author.
In his book, DiBiasio offers
business and financial planning
advice to individuals who find
themselves in the role of Starv-.
ing Artist," the "Corporate Artist,"
the Self-employed Artist" and the
"Affluent Artist."
The book includes personal sto-
ries from artists in each of these
groups, as well as "Financial
Stuff You Just Gotta Know" and
a humorous and useful primer on
financial terms and situations.
The writer gives suggestions
on how to avoid financial pitfalls
based on his experience helping
artists develop a sound financial
base.
"Creative people don't have to
starve," said DiBiasio. "Having a
good idea about personal finance
and the business process will help
you, in the long run, to be more
creative."
DiBiasio has written newspaper
columns, has been a radio talk-
show host and posts a popular
blog. His interviews with creative
people are available on his Web
site at www.affluentartist.com.
The idea for the book came to
DiBiasio in 2007 when he was giv-
ing a financial planning presenta-
tion to a 400-person audience at an
international conference. After his
speech, many creative individuals
stopped to ask for his help.
Though he works daily with
entertainers, authors and dolphin
trainers, DiBiasio hadn't realized
how many people could relate to
his techniques.
With the help of a friend, Jack
Canfield, a motivational speaker
and author of the Chicken Soup
for the Soul book series, DiBiasio
was able to find his way through
the publishing process. He and
Canfield had becorie friends do-
ing training seminars together.
In a few months, DiBiasio
had finished the book. Canfield
added to the book by writing its
foreword.
Immersed in the creative writ-
ing process, DiBiasio said he's
become a happier person.
"I'm finding my own creative
side," he said. People set goals
about health and weight. This
year, DiBiasio said he set a goal.
to learn to play the guitar.
"I've always wanted to play
guitar, and now it almost sounds
like music," the author said.
DiBiasio graduated from Fair-
field University, Fairfield, Conn.,
as a religious studies major. He
has lived in the Lakes of Wind-
ermere for five years and before
S that was an Ocoee resident for 10
- years.
W The book is available online at
Amazon.com and at booksellers
worldwide. In paperback, it sells
for $19.95.

Children's artwork ministry takes on higher mission


By Lani Llanes
It all started with a calling to
do more. Listening to the voice
in her head, Rende Schneider
created an artistic outlet for
children living in foster care
to have fun and express them-
selves in a positive way.
After many attempts at vol-
unteer service, Schneider nev-
er found a program she fell in
love with. In 2003, to fulfill her
passion to serve, she launched
ArtWorks as an outreach min-
istry through St. Luke's United
Methodist Church. Nearly ev-
ery Friday of the school year,
she can be found in downtown
Orlando at the Great Oaks Vil-
lage Learning Center, working
with elementary- and middle
school-age students. Schneider
teaches them how they can
express themselves through
visual, language and perfor-
mance arts.
Growing up with an artist
father, marrying an artist and
getting into art herself, Sch-
neider knows the freedom and
positive self-esteem art, in all
forms, can offer.
"As an artistic, creative per-
son, you sometimes feel you
don't fit in; and, now in foster
care, these kids need a place to
get into an environment where
they fit in," said Schneider.
To give everyone a chance
to find their niche, profes-
sional artists from all different
specialties volunteer their time
to teach classes through Art-
Works. Students have learned
to make lighted glass bottles,
beaded jewelry, wire sculp-
tures, face cast masks and even

Recycled crafts class
In its continuing Eco Satur-
days series, the Tibet-Butler
Nature Preserve will host a pro-
gram on recycled crafts for the
holidays on Dec. 20 beginning
at 10 am.
Participants can celebrate the
season by creating various craft
items for the holiday season and
wintertime. The program is open
to all ages but limited to 50 par-
ticipants.
The preserve is located at
8777 County Road 535 in Or-
lando. For more information and
to register, call 407-876-6696.

New library activities
The Windermere Library is
offering several new activities
in December.
Enjoy a Jammy Jamboree on
Dec. 18 at 6 p.m. by coming
dressed in your pajamas for a
bedtime story, crafts, music and
milk and cookies.
Come by the library for a
special screening of A Charlie
Brown Christmas on Dec. 20
at 2 p.m. Submit your family's
entry for the fourth annual "Ug-
liest Tree Contest" and enjoy
light refreshments.


Artworks, an outreach ministry of St. Luke's United Meth-
odist Church, creates an outlet for children living in foster
care to have fun and express themselves through art in a
positive way. As part of the program, the children create
note cards, which are for sale via e-mail to Rende Sch-
neider at 2designers@earthlink.net.


paper that they used in a writ-
ing class to write stories on.
Along with art classes, cre-
ative writing is also offered.
Recently, the students have
been working on an end-of-
the-year project, which is a
collaboration of everything
they have done this semester.
Their work will be shown at
a celebration exhibition at the
end of April of next year. Each
year the exhibit is themed; this
year is all about the word "Lis-
ten."
Since the kids have so little
say over their lives, Schneider
said she encourages them to
listen with their hearts and to
listen with their minds. Be-


cause the children live with an
unimaginable number of rules,
she also encourages them to
express what they want people
to listen to through their art.
ArtWorks also partners with
the University of Central Flor-
ida and the Orlando Repertory
Theatre to teach students the
art of performance. Schneider
tries to take the students to at
least two or three plays and
dance performances each year.
A recent field trip to see The
Emperor's New Clothes was
one of the youngsters' favor-
ites.
In preparation they made
life-size pillow Manicheans of
themselves as emperors sport-


ing their own unique fashions.
The Manicheans were then put
on display at the theater when
the students visited the show.
In creating ArtWorks, one
of Schneider's main goals was
to give the students every op-
portunity to see their artwork
come full circle. Every field
trip she plans, although aimed
at fun, has an educational pur-
pose.
A project that is always a
tradition at Great Oaks is to
create holiday note cards. The
cards are made using a block
print technique, and the stu-
dents go on a trip to see the
process at the printing facility.
Schneider wants to show them
the countless job opportunities
art can offer.
The note cards are sold each
year to help pay for the field
trips, the year-end celebration
exhibit and an art kit each stu-
dent receives at the celebra-
tion.
Since ArtWorks began, more
than 160 children in foster care
have participated, 40 profes-
sional artists have volunteered,
28 field trips have been taken
and 125 art kits have been dis-
tributed.
Never one to color within
the lines, Schneider soon
hopes to branch out and take
ArtWorks to a greater number
of locations and be able to help
more kids.
To purchase this year's note
cards, donate or find out how
you can join in on the Friday-
night fun and volunteer your
talents, contact Renee Sch-
neider at 2designers@earth-
link.net.


Collecting for the troops
Brownie Troop 237, along with Olympia High School's National Technical Honor Society,
, collected items to send to the troops as a service project. Each girl collected enough food
and toiletry items to fill a shoe box. Included in each box was a card made by each girl
with a special message for the troops. Working on the project are (front row) Erin Went-
ley, Sarah White, Stephanie Lair and Gabrielle Nye; and (back row) Madeleine Pinckney,
Bianca Vicari, Uma Budhu and Bailey Weiss. Not pictured is Emily Gill.

A stolen show bear
Barbara Martin of Russell
Drive in Ocoee is known for
her outdoor holiday decora-
tions, and this Christmas season
has been no exception. But last
week as she went to light up
her yard, including a 15-foot-
high snow bear, it wasn't there.
Someone had stolen it and
placed a very small Santa in
its place.
"I couldn't believe it," said
Barbara. "It just broke my
heart."
She said she loves to put out
decorations for the children in
the neighborhood and feels sad
that someone would steal from
her yard.
To cheer her up, her co-

in the office offering a $100
reward for the return of the

Happy 50th Birthday!
with love,
From the many many
members of your family


Happy 50th

Birthday
You've finally reached the big five-o,
A milestone, to be sure!
And with it comes the "aging" jokes
That you must now endure.
Although your age is public news,
With us it would be fine
If you decided you'd go back
To being thirty-nine.
You really needn't bother, 'cause
You truly look so great
That no one would believe that you
Are more than thirty-eight!
So enjoy your birthday, and
Keep doing what you do.
We don't know what it is
But boy! It sure looks good on you!

Josh Mansingh (No. 22) leads the way for Foundation quarterback Wes Murray during a
rushing attempt at the Sunshine State Athletic Conference Championship Series.

Foundation football wins season-finale thriller


Foundation Academy fin-
ished its third football season
in dramatic fashion. A, week
after defeating Central Florida
Christian Academy on the fi-
nal play of the game, the Lions
duplicated the feat when they
traveled to The Villages for the
Sunshine State Athletic Con-
ference (SSAC) Championship
Series. ,
Foundation faced The Can-
terbury School of St. Peters-
burg in the fifth-place game
that saw multiple lead chang-
es. Tailback Josh Mansingh,
Foundation's all-time lead-
ing rusher, was bottled up as
Canterbury loaded the line of
scrimmage. To counter, the
coaches sent Mansingh on
patterns out of the backfield,
where he finished with five
catches for 140 yards and three

Canterbury.


touchdowns. Quarterback Wes
Murray had the best game of
his career, throwing for 240
yards and completing 13 of
14 passes with the three touch-
downs. With less than a minute
to play, Murray rushed for the
game-winning touchdown.
Canterbury stormed back,
though, and put itself in posi-
tion for one more pass into the
end zone from the 20-yard line
with only two seconds left on
the clock. The pass floated into
the left corner, hitting a receiv-
er right in the hands but was
quickly batted away by Kenny
Strong to secure the victory.
Strong added 71 yards rush-
ing and two touchdowns in the
game. The victory improved
Foundation's season record to
4-6, doubling its win total of
the previous two years.


The SSAC selected five
Foundation teammates -
Mansingh, Strong, linemen
Landon Johnson and Dylan
Rodriquez and tight end Mike
McBride to the all-confer-
ence team. Murray, Carl Wom-
ack (offensive line), Jack Vest
(defensive end), Phil Richards
(running back) and Zach Ray-,
mond (linebacker) were all
given honorable mentions.
Mansingh finished the year
with 950 yards rushing, 6.9
yards per carry, 209 yards re-
ceiving, 26.9 yards per kick re-
turn, three return touchdowns,
16 total touchdowns, 82 tack-
les, two interceptions and one
interception returned for a 90-
yard touchdown. Mansingh
finished as runner-up for Or-
ange County's 1B player of the
year award.

DP soccer storms back to beat West Orange


Pedro D'Avila scored the game-tying and
game-winning goals as the Dr. Phillips High
varsity boys soccer team came back twice
to defeat host West Orange 3-2.
The Warriors opened the scoring in the
15th minute of the game, but Pedro Codo
took a pass from Tarik Elmazani on the left
flank and chipped it over the keeper to tie the
match at 1-1. The Warriors jumped ahead
2-1 in the 50th minute, but D'Avila tied the
match at 2-2 off a free kick from #S yards
out. DP got it dbne again in the 65t# minute


off another free kick from D'Avila.
Seeing the goalkeeper off his line,
D'Avila launched a shot from 40 yards out
that sailed over the keeper's head and into
the back of the net for the game winner. The
Panthers improved to 5-1 on the season.
The DP junior varsity squad defeated
West Orange 2-1. Leone Bonami scored
twice in the first half, and the Panthers
utilized a strong team defense to hold off
a West Orange surge through the second
half.


Lady Warrior blowout
West Orange defender Kylyn Wood takes the ball away during last Thursday's 6-0 victory
over Evans. Lauren Shea and Erica Silveira scored 2 goals apiece, and Tori Brown and
Sarah Kinsey closed out the scoring. The Lady Warriors improved to 6-1-4. Brown also
notched her 7th shutout in goal during a scoreless tie vs. Freedom early last week.


DP holds No. 7
hoops ranking
with comeback win
Chuck Ford scored a c4reer-
high 36 points as the Dr. Phil-
lips varsity boys basketball
team overcame a seven-point
halftime deficit to defeat host
Wekiva 72-62.
The Panthers (4-0), ranked
No. 7 in the state, came out on
fire with a 17-3 lead early on but
went cold as Wekiva outscored
DP 23-8 to take a one-point lead,
26-25, and stretched the lead to
38-31 at the half. DP closed the
deficit to two in the third quarter
and took the lead for good in the
fourth.
Ford was a perfect 12-12 from
the free throw line in the final
period and finished with five as-
sists and three steals. PatRyan
added 14 points and eight re-.
bounds. Damani Cade finished
with 13 points, six rebounds and
four assists, while Victor Gray
pulled'down eight rebounds.
DP had no problems cruising
through the field at the'Grey-
hound Invitational earlier this
month, opening with a 76-51
victory over Cypress Creek
and finishing with a 73-38 dis-
mantling of host Lyman in the
championship game. DP used a
32-11 second-quarter scoring
barrage to pull away from the
Greyhounds and never looked
back. Ford scored 17 points in
the title game to earn the tour-
nament's most valuable player
award. Gray finished with seven
points and seven rebounds. Ryan
nearly logged a triple-double
with 19 points, eight rebounds
and seven assists and made the
all-tournament team along with
teammate Cade.
The Panther boys junior var-'
sity basketball team opened up
its season with a 61-53 victory
over Wekiva. Terrance Pow-
ell and Laron Louis scored 12
points each, while Heron Elliott
and LaQuentin Smith knocked
down huge shots in the fourth
quarter to seal the victory.
The freshman boys basket-
ball dropped its record to 4-3
after falling to Wekiva 34-25.
Phillip Amone and Jeff Trudeau
led the scoring with seven points
each.
In the midst of a brutal sched-
ule that has included seven
ranked teams in eight games,
the DP varsity girls basketball
team played hard and had sev-
eral games fall just inches from
its grasp. The Lady Panthers
rebounded by stunning host
Timber Creek 45-30 last week.
Ashley Young led all scorers
with 16 points, including eight
of nine at the free-throw line,
Isabel Ehrli added 11 points
and five rebounds and BreAnn
Davis logged nine points, seven
rebounds and three steals. DP
trailed 17-16 at the half but went
on a 15-4 fourth-quarter run to
put the game away.
The Lady Panthers fought
hard and had several opportu-
nities against rival Olympia,
but 26 turnovers doomed their
fate in a 46-34 loss to the Lady
Titans. DP trailed 15-7 after
one quarter but played Olympia
nearly even the rest of the way.
Ehrli score nine points, pulled
down eight rebounds and picked
up three steals, while Erig Ma-
hagan totaled eight rebounds'
and a pair of steals.


Uplifting victory
Talita Norberto hoists a heavy load while leading the Dr.
Phillips High varsity girls weightlifting team to a 67-20 vic-
tory over rival West Orange in last week's season-opener.
Norberto and Emily Carnevale both bench pressed 140
pounds and lifted 130 pounds in the clean-and-jerk, while
Jesily Ruiz listed 135 in both events to help lead DP to vic-
tory in nearly every weight class.

'Rachel's Challenge'
The students at Lakeview
Middle recently accepted the
challenge to create a chain re-
action of kindness. This chal-
lenge is known by students
around the country as "Ra-
chel's Challenge."
Rachel Joy Scott was the
first person killed at Colum-
bine High School on April 20,
1999. This tragedy was one
of the worst school shootings
in history with the loss of 13
lives. An essay written by Ra-
chel and her diaries are the
foundation for the "Rachel's
Challenge" program that was
founded by her father, Darrell,
and her brother, Craig.
The challenge team strives
to motivate, educate and ac-
tivate students to create a
better world. Cody Hodges
presented Rachel's story and


the five pieces to the chal-
lenge: Eliminate prejudice by
looking for the best in others.
Dare to dream, set goals and
keep a journal. Choose your
influences input determines
output. Kind words and small
acts of kindness equal a huge
impact. Start a chain reaction
with family and friends. Lakev-
iew students signed an "I ac-
cept Rachel's Challenge" ban-
ner and began the Friends of
Rachel Club.
In addition, 130 students,
teachers and parents partici-
pated in Challenge Day. This
event embodied the words of
Ghandi, "Be the change you
want to see in the world." The
program was created to build
connections and empathy
and to fulfill the vision that all
children live in a world where
they feel safe, loved and cel-
ebrated.

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


Ever have the experience of believing
something only to find out you've been lied
to? The result was disappointment at the
least and devastation in many cases. Con-
fidence was stolen and trust was destroyed.
Lies always destroy.
Jesus said, "...I am the truth..." (John
14:6) and that there is another who "...
comes only to steal and kill and destroy.",
(John 10:10). He further described.that one
as "...the father of lies." (John 8:44) Who
is it? Here's the rest of His statement. "You
belong to your father, the devil, and you
want to carry out your father's desire. He
was a murderer (destroyer) from the begin-
ning, not holding to the truth, for there is
no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his
native language, for he is a liar and the fa-
ther of lies." (John 8:44)

Think about the destructive thoughts, at-
titudes and behaviors that come. Thoughts
contrary to the truth produce destructive-
behavior. When we say and do things we
are told will satisfy, and give purpose to our
life, but in reality hurt us and others, we
have believed the lie. The only way to win
at life and overcome the lie is to know the
Truth. Jesus gave us a promise, "I will ask
the Father, and He will give you another
Counselor to be with you forever---the
Spirit of Truth..." (John 14:16-17) "When
He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide
you into all truth..." .(John 16:13)
Having a hard time knowing how to make
good choices? Get to know the one who
exposes the lie and is the Truth.

Maxey Elementary


John Fleming is Spring Lake
Elementary's Teacher of the
Year.


The winners of the Maxey Elementary Talent Show 'Gladys Knight and the Pips' -
are (1-r) Naquan Renalds, Jemerh Cosby, media specialist LaJuana Jackson, Michael
Miller and Deondre Hawkins.


Five selected cadets from West Orange High traveled to the University of Central Florida
recently for a training exercise led by Detachment 159 AFROTC. The WOHS cadets
were issued equipment and quickly integrated into 2 different squadrons. The exercise
is orchestrated twice a year by the senior ROTC cadets. The 2 squadrons headed out to
complete different parts of the overall mission, which was delayed by constant simulated
enemy contact, roadside bombs, leadership tests and challenge questions. One senior
cadet made this comment after watching a successful deactivation of a roadside bomb:
'Our goal here is to prepare you for the real thing; in a mission you must keep on your
feet.' The WOHS cadets were well represented and maintained focus on this field leader-
ship mission. A big thank-you goes to UCF Detachment 159 AFROTC.


Runner-up in pageant
West Orange High 9th-grad-
er Neisha Mendez recently
participated in the Miss Central
Florida Teen pageant. She won
2nd place and will be Miss Cen-
tral Florida Teen if the queen is
not able to fulfill her duties. She


won $8,000 in cash, a college
scholarship and a trip to Las
Vegas to compete in the next
round of competition.
Quiz Bowl excels
The Quiz Bowl team re-
cently made the playoffs. The


students ended with an 8-4
season and were set to next
compete at Olympia. High
against Winter Park. The win-
ner will advance to the next
round. A big thank-you goes
to everyone who contributed
to questions for the team.


Teacher of the Year
Spring Lake Elementary
congratulates John Fleming
on being named Teacher of the
Year. He has been a kindergar-
ten teacher at the school for
11 years. He was a substitute
teacher throughout Orange
County teaching everything
.from PreK up to fifth grade for
two years before discovering
SLES.
This is when he realized he
had a knack for working with
younger students. He had
taught fourth and fifth grades
only before moving from South
Dakota to Florida.
Fleming didn't begin teach-
ing until he was 33. He re-
ceived his Bachelor of Science
in elementary education from'
Black Hills State University in
Spearfish, S. D.
He has always loved school
and enjoys teaching kindergar-
ten. His favorite subjects are
science and music. He's the
biggest and oldest kid on the
playground, and seeing the
world through the fresh, simple
perspective of his students is
what makes his work reward-
ing. Being surrounded by a car-
ing school family at Spring Lake
is what makes it enjoyable.

Retired Educators
to meet Jan. 8
The Orange County Retired
Educators Association will meet
Thursday, Jan. 8, at 10 a.m. at
College Park United Methodist
Church, 644 W. Princeton St.,
Orlando.
Patrick Davis of Life Care of
Florida will present a program
on "Preventing Falls."
Anyone who has worked in
education is invited to join the
group. Visit the Web site at

vice day with the elementary
students. Each elementary
class was assigned a senior
to help them with lessons and
activities.,


The seniors helped with
reading, science, art, P.E.
and many others lessons.
The highlight of the day was
attending elementary chapel
together. The elementary chil-
dren and staff loved having the

Sugar Mama's: Love is in the batter


By Mary Anne Swickerath

Sugar Mama's, a new bak-
ery in Clermont, has been open
only about a month, but its
sweet creations are flying off
the premises.
The bakery owned by part-
ners Michelle Clinger (a former
resident of Ocoee) and Leslie
Kirkland is located at 648
Eighth St. in Clermont's his-
toric downtown area just north
of Montrose Avenue, and the
cases are filled with cupcakes,
cinnamon rolls, muffins and
cookies.
And not just your regular
cupcakes. There are strawber-
ry cheesecake cupcakes, guava
and cheese cupcakes, chocolate
chip cookie dough cupcakes,
cookies and cream cupcakes,
banana pudding cupcakes and
peanut butter cupcakes.
The most popular cookie so
far, said Michelle, is the classic
chocolate chip.
And the baking mamas (both
have a small child or two) have
been busy filling special orders
for pies and cakes, including a
recent racecar cake, a buttered-
pecan cake and a Yorkie cake.
To take advantage of their
special-order talents, you need
to give them at least 24 hours'
notice.
Michelle, who now lives
with her family in Mount Dora,
said they opened this new busi-
ness because "we wanted to do
something for ourselves. Les-
lie and I both baked cakes for
our children's birthdays, and
people would ask us to help
or bake their child's cake. So
it slowly evolved into Sugar
Mama's."
One reason those cakes were
so good was that both started
baking in high school and each
took cake-decorating classes
while in college. Another is
that they make everything fresh
daily from scratch and from


f




Michelle Clinger'(left) and Leslie Kirkland are the owners of Sugar Mama's in downtown
Clermont.


family recipes handed down
through many generations.
"Everything here is made
with love," added Michelle.
Leslie, a Clermont resident,
said the most rewarding thing
about Sugar Mama's is "being
able to see something you've
dreamed about come to frui-
tion, making the impossible
possible."
The hardest part for both is
juggling family and other job
demands. Michelle, a gradu-
ate of the University of Flor-
ida, teaches Pre-K students at
Rimes Early Learning Center,
and Leslie, a Troy State Uni-


versity grad, is in retail man-
agement.
"It's hard to balance fam-
ily life with work life and still
make our business successful,"
said Leslie.
Michelle said the business
takes a lot of hours each week,
and she and Leslie are still try-
ing to gauge what the custom-
ers want without compromising
the quality of their product.
They, along with their hus-
bands, Jason Clinger and Der-
rel Kirkland, did all the work
transforming a mortgage of-
fice into a bakery, including
replumbing and rewiring,


painting and installing special
equipment and a ventilation
system.
Now they are gearing up for
the holidays by making spe-
cially decorated cookies and
cupcakes along with chocolate
candies and fudge.
Sugar Mama's, which also
offers coffee, hot tea and hot
chocolate, is open Monday
through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8
p.m. and Saturday and Sunday
from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

to put in your order for that
special cake or pie, call 352-
241-9738.


By Mary Anne Swickerath

Not many cookbooks offer
a recipe for an old-fashioned
Southern pot roast immediate-
ly followed by one for a very
French boeuf bourguignonne.
But that's exactly what Atlanta
chef Virginia Willis does in
her new cookbook, Bon Ap-
pdtit, Y'all. She also includes
"Meme's Fried Fatback" and
"Coca-Cola-Glazed Baby Back
Ribs" in the same chapter as
"Pepper-crusted Beef with Co-
gnac and Golden Raisins" and
"Provencal Lamb Chops."
But you needn't be confused.
Bon Appdtit, Y'all's subtitle on
the cover is "Recipes and Sto-
ries from Three Generations
of Southern Cooking," and
it delivers on that score. It's
just that her Georgian grand-
mother and mother were tal-
ented down-home cooks who
were also influenced by Julia
Child's early television show
and Willis herself is a trained
French chef.
As she writes in her introduc-
tion to this fascinating book:
"As a Southerner and a graduate
of both L'Academie de Cuisine
and cole de Cuisine La Va-
renne, my own style of cooking
combines my Southern heritage
With classical French training.
The result is a melange of new
Southern and new American
cooking with a heavy dose of
classic French technique."
Little did she know that when
she was a child wondering why
she was the only one in her el-
ementary school who took left-
over crepes aux champignons
and roulade au poulet for lunch,
her grandmother and mother
had unwittingly marked her
for a culinary career.
She hated being different
then, but she now sees how
these women's explorations
and curiosity formed the roots
of her own passion for food.
"My philosophy with most
recipes is that simple is best,"
says Willis. "I try to use the
finest ingredients and, by con-
centrating on sound French
i technique, do as little to them
as possible to let the flavor of
the actual food shine through


a style I like to call 'refined
Southern cuisine.' These are
recipes to cook in the home
kitchen, not restaurant-driven
creations."
As a food writer and cook-
ing teacher, Willis has honed
her recipes to make them clear
and accessible for the home
cook using less fat than many of
the Southern and French dishes
they are based on.
These are not "fussy' recipes,
.requiring mail-order ingredients
or long hours at the stove.
They are classic and creative
and useful for both beginner
and experienced cooks.
Each is introduced with a
story, a memory or just some
encouraging words, making it
a cookbook that is as readable
as it is instructive.
For example, before she lists
the ingredients for her bourbon
sweet potatoes, she comments:
"Only a Southerner, inheritor
of the infamous Southern sweet
tooth, would add massive quan-
tities of butter and sugar to a
dish and still regard it as a veg-
etable. Add a shot of bourbon?
No problem."
And one of the most wonder-
ful recipes in the book is "Fu-
neral Grits," which she prefaces
by writing: "Casseroles are the
salve that heals a Southerner's
wounded soul. I always call this
dish 'funeral grits' because it's
the perfect dish to take to the
bereaved after the funeral. It
can be treated as a side dish,
held for hours in a low oven
with few ill effects and the left-
overs reheat wonderfully."
That one alone is worth the
price of the book ($32.50 at
Barnes and Noble).
To tell the truth, a lot of roast-
ed chicken recipes and macaro-
ni and cheese recipes get on my
nerves. The ones in this book are
right on the money. No brining
of the chicken before roasting
and no butter-and-flour-and-
milk cream sauce for the mac
and cheese. She puts the bird
(carefully seasoned, of course,
with lemon and herbs) right in
the oven (and she doesn't ask
me to turn it three times or so
during the cooking process).
For the mac, she combines the


A holiday dessert that will have
your guests asking for 's'more'


Gloria Piantek from West
Lafayette, Ind., is celebrating
the holiday season with a rec-
ipe honored as one of the best
in the nation. Nordic Ware,
maker of the iBundt pan,
named Piantek one of 10 na-
tional finalists in the "Bundts
Across America" contest. Pi-
antek's recipe titled "S'More
Christmas Cream Cake" was
judged superior in the areas
of originality, taste, texture,
visual appearance, use of
ingredients and an essay de-
scribing how the entry repre-
sents, in its own special way,
one of America's popular hol-
idays, Christmas. This season
Piantek is proud to share her
dessert recipe with families
all over the country.
"Christmas means sur-
prises, and this cake has
lots of them," says Piantek.
"It's easy to make, simple to
decorate, and hidden, baked
inside, is a dark chocolate
filling. The pan shape helps
create a snow hill for the
kids to decorate. What could
be better for Christmas than
S'More cake!"
As a finalist, Piantek was
treated to an expense-paid
trip to San Francisco in Oc-
tober, which included partici-
pating for the grand prize at
the baking competition held
at the famous San Francisco
Baking Institute (SFBI). SFBI
has trained hundreds of pro-
fessional and aspiring bakers
from all over the world and
is recognized within the bak-
ing industry as a place where
artisan baking is respected,
appreciated and celebrated.
Piantek's recipe, based on the
Christmas holiday, is baked
in Nordic Ware's Rose Bundt
Pan.

orainia Willi


The photo of the cover of 'Bon App6tit, Ya'll' by Virginia


Willis is of corn spoon bread.

cooked pasta straight away with
diced cheese, eggs and milk (no
silly bread crumbs) and loads
it all up in a casserole. Smart,
simple and delicious.
It's just good food explained
by someone who knows what
she's talking, about, someone
who comes from a long tradi-
tion of food hospitality and who
has taught and written about


cooking her whole life.
I'm giving this book to sev-
eral friends for Christmas. It
would also be a good choice
for some Southerner you know
now living in a cold, Northern
climate. It's a cookbook that's
like walking into a warm kitch-
en smelling of home (with may-
be a succulent French entr6e on
the table).
