City's food drive is feeding the hungry


Ocoee has collected more than
1,000 pounds of food for the
Daily Bread Program at the
West Orange Christian Service
Center. More food will be needed
throughout 2009.

By Mary Anne Swickerath

The donations have been mounting for the city of
Ocoee's newly established food drive for those need-
ing help during this national'economic downturn. At
last week's City Commission meeting, the Ocoee
Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints donated 740 pounds of food, which was piled
in front of the elected officials in the Commission


Chambers.
The food included cans of beef stew, tuna, pork
and beans and turkey chunks, along with bags of
pinto beans, black beans and rice, the type of food
requested by the West Orange Christian Service Cen-
ter, whose Daily Bread Program is the recipient of.
this citywide food drive.
"We have ongoing service projects throughout the
year for individuals in need," Bishop Brent Sauser of
the Ocoee Ward told the commission. "We normally
give quietly, without a lot of publicity, but we are do-
nating this food at this commission meeting to set an
example and encourage others to give as well."
The director of the West Orange Christian Service
Center, Rosemary Wilsen, thanked Bishop Sauser for
the impressive contribution and the Ocoee Parks and
Recreation Department for collecting a large amount
of food for Daily Bread at the Winter Wonderland


event it recently hosted.
Early this week, Wilsen told The West Orange
Times: "This drive has been a blessing. The city has
collected more than 1,000 pounds of food, and it's
still going on."
She said the center has seen a significant drop in
donations this year, along with a big increase in re-
quests for help and participants in the Daily Bread
Program.
"Holiday donations usually last us for several
months after Christmas, but that will not happen this
year," she explained, "and we really need protein
items, such as canned meats and tuna and canned
soup."
Throughout December, the city has been accept-
ing donations of non-perishable food at City Hall, the

Magic star spreads holiday cheer in Ocoee
The Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard, in partnership with Operation Blessing Interna-
tional and Bread of Life Christian Fellowship, came to the West Orange Christian Service
Center in Ocoee last week to surprise 100 local families in need with a personal visit, a
$100 Publix gift card, an emergency survival kit and Orlando Magic goody bags. Howard,
shown with 1 of the children he met, signed autographs and took photos with the families
for more than 2 hours. The West Orange Christian Service Center is experiencing un-
precedented volumes of families in need in our community. Food, clothing and especially.
monetary donations are being stretched thin amidst a fragile economy.


has reorganized
the department to
compensate for a
budget decrease.

By Amy Quesinberry

Tim Driscoll is operating on
a 14 percent smaller budget
than last year, yet he still has
the responsibility of protect-
ing the citizens of Oakland as
chief of police in the town.
In a workshop with the
Town Commissioners on Dec.
9, Driscoll addressed a plan
for streamlining the Oakland
Police Department and 'ad-
justing to difficult socioeco-
nomic times."
In the last two years, the
town decided not to fill some
officer positions that were va-
cated through attrition, so the
department, which once had
10 full-time positions, now
has seven.
Driscoll restructured these
officers' schedules to continue


maintaining a 24/7, 168-hour
week.
"When times get tough,
there's typically an increase in
crime," the chief said.
He added that Oakland is the
only agency in Orange County
that fails to employ a full-time
investigator.
As part of the restructure
plan, a part-time investiga-
tor's position was established
and will be filled by a current
reserve officer who is a re-
tired investigator from another
agency in Orange County.
Also,,the two sergeants' po-
sitions have been temporarily
removed. One of these two
employees will now serve as
a supervisor with the respon-
sibilities of a lieutenant, and
the other will be assigned ad-
ditional community policing,
code enforcement and patrol
duties and will serve as a spe-
cial detail coordinator.
Oakland's reserve officers
are now part-time officers and

Happy ending for Reading Reindeer's 11th year


Book deliveries are
reaching thousands of
West Orange County
homes.

By Kathy Aber

There is great excitement this week
in The West Orange Times office as
the staff wrapped up its llth Reading
Reindeer season.
Donations of $4,153 and more than
3,,100 books far exceeded the 2,000-
book goal set in October.
But the best news of all was that all
of Reading Reindeer's Christmas de-
liveries are under way.
The proceeds from a very successful
book fair at Barnes and Noble at Win-
ter Garden Village at Fowler Groves
are still being tallied and will be avail-
able at the end of the week.
The book fair credits, along with the
cash donations, will make it possible
to give a new Dr. Seuss book to each


baby born at Health Central through-
out the coming year.
On Thursday, children around West
Orange County are waking up to fiqd
new books under their Christmas trees
right along with their gifts from Santa.
When the Times started this holi-
day book drive in 1998, it was .
focused on starting libraries
for children who had no
books in their homes. ,
It's hard to believe
there are homes in West
Orange County with no
children's books, but
teachers consistently tell
us this is a common occur-
rence.
A teacher at West Orange High
School alerted the Times to this unset-
tling reality in 1998, and other teach-
ers have made the same observation
almost every year.
The good news this year is that many
more businesses and groups have
joined the list of "friends of Reading
Reindeer."


The West Orange Chamber of Com-
merce alerted its members to the Read-
ing Reindeer drive and collected books
at its Business After Hours events. The
West Orange Committee of One Hun-
dred and One donated $1,000, and the
West Orange Junior Service League
gave $2,500 to Reading Rein-
deer.
ABC Bus and employ-
ees at the Progress Ener-
gy Operations Center in
Winter Garden chipped
in to help make the drive
a success. The Adull Lit-
eracy League collected
books and provided literacy
brochures that accompany
each book distributed.
The students, faculty and staff at
Ocoee High School gathered and la-
beled 1,100 new books before a pep
rally.
A printing business brought in books
as did two local Rotary clubs and the
Bloom 'N' Grow Garden Society.
The Estates of Windermere held its


Jingle Jog to benefit Reading Reindeer
and labeled the books, too.
A local book distributor brought in
more than 250 new books.
The Times was excited to partici-
pate in a book fair event at Barnes and
,Noble for the first time and to sponsor
three meet-the-author events to spur
community interest in literacy.
And books went to more agencies
and groups than ever before. Read-
ing Reindeer has been giving books
to Toys For Tots in Ocoee and Winter
Garden since the beginning, but this
year, books also went to children at the
Play and Learn Day School in Winter
Garden and families served through
the Windermere Police Department
and St. Vincent de Paul at St. Jude
Catholic Church. Other recipients in-
cluded the West Orange Christian Ser-
vice Center, the Migrant Services of
Orange County Public Schools, Head-
Start and pre-kindergarten classes at
Maxey Elementary School, the Winter

The new Environmental
Education Center is near com-
pletion at the Oakland Nature
Preserve, and final inspections
should be completed soon.
One of the requirements for
final inspections is comple-
tion of a landscape and in
this case it will be a restoration
planting instead of a standard
landscape.
Volunteers met on recent
Saturday mornings and in-
stalled more than 2,000 native
plants endemic to this area.
Plants included native trees,
shrubs, grasses and wildflow-
ers.
The log building is a replica
Al


of a pioneer homestead build-
ing with three main rooms
separated by an open dogtrot
and open verandas. The origi-
nal homestead building had a
room on one side for eating
and living space and a sec-
ond room on the other side for
sleeping. The kitchen was sep-
arated from the main rooms
by an open dogtrot walkway
because they were so hot
(and because they sometimes
caught fire). The new building
will feature a well-equipped
classroom, a museum and li-
brary and, where the kitchen

'It's a Wonder-FULL Life' presented at FBC Windermere
The '3 in 1' Kids Choir at First Baptist Church Windermere recently presented 'It's a Won-
der-FULL Life' under the direction of Patty Hood, Mary Ann Vermillion and Dianna Cotter.
The children had been working since August learning the music, drama and choreog-
raphy for the musical. Written by Pam Andrews and Luke Gambill, the story is loosely
based on the original television movie. It takes place at a church where the children are
presenting the Christmas story. Through a series of events, they find out that life without
Jesus is sadness, but life with. Jesus is wonder-FULL. The children's choir will rehearse
each Wednesday beginning on Jan. 7 from 4-5:30 p.m. and is open to children in the
community in grades 1-5. Rehearsals take place at the church, located at 300 Main St.

In addition to the Times'
office, there were six loca-
tions this year for readers to
drop off their donations. The
Times is grateful to the four
local libraries (West Orange,
Windermere, West Oaks and
Southwest branches) for be-
ing part of Reading Reindeer
since the beginning, the West
Orange Chamber, Barnes and
Noble in Winter Garden and
West Oaks Mall.
Every year, Reading Rein-
deer touches more individuals.
Community support is expand-
ing.
Besides building home li-
braries for West Orange Coun-
ty children, Reading Reindeer
is also aimed at drawing atten-
tion to the literacy needs in our
community, where one in five
adults can't read a daily news-
paper.
Improving literacy skills and
demonstrating the importance
of reading to children, even
the youngest infants, is key to
making every citizen a fully
functioning adult.
The Times is committed to
improving literacy levels in
West Orange County. And the
growing community support
for this literacy drive has been
heartwarming.

Orange Times last week. "The

Because the programs to be
interpreted at the new center
will focus on cultural history, as
well as natural history, the plan
is to replicate as much as pos-
sible. No plants were installed
near the building, and the area
all around the building was kept
clean by raking, leaving only
bare sand in a 20-foot swath
(for fire protection). This is
.the "landscape" being installed
around the new building.
The grand opening is sched-
uled for January.

Police warn against
celebratory
shooting
The Ocoee Police Depart-
.ment wishes to remind citi-
zens that celebratory gunfire is
dangerous and illegal. A bullet
fired up into the air will come
down. It can travel as much as
two miles or more, and when it
comes down it can kill.
Shooting a gun into the air
is a crime punishable by up
to a year in prison, and these
crimes are prosecuted to the
fullest extent the law allows.
If a person is injured, the pen-
alties get much higher; and if a
death results, the person firing
the gun will be charged with
that death.
The Ocoee Police Depart-
ment asks that if anyone sees
someone fire a gun in the air to
immediately call police.

while another might decide to

and joining the Times' com-
mitment to improving com-
munity literacy.
Making bedtime stories a

MY CHRISTMAS IN HEAVEN
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below
with tiny lights, like Heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular; please wipe away that tear,
for I am spending Christmas with Jesus this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
but the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.
I have-no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring,
for it's beyond description, to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me. I see the pain inside your heart,
but I am not so far away. We really aren't apart.
So, be happy for me dear ones, for you know
I'm spending Christmas with Jesus this year.
I send you each a special gift from my heavenly home above:
"My undying love!"
After all, "love" is the gift more precious than pure gold.
It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other as my Father said to do,
for I can't count the many blessings or love He has for each of you.
So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear,
Remember, I'm spending Christmas with Jesus this year.

What makes that ornament so special?
Christmas is a busy time of year to ask anyone to do anything extra, so The West Orange Times
appreciates those readers who wrote in to share the memories of their favorite Christmas tree
ornaments. Below are the responses.

Remembering high school club
When we put up our Christmas tree (I like to 24 girls in the club. We were together through
call it our Memory Tree), so many wonderful high school, and most of us have remained
memories come flooding back to me. There are friends ever since. About 18 years ago, 14 of

Snoopy hangin' on decades later


It isn't Christmas in our home until
"Snoopy is hangin' on"! Almost 30 years
ago, a dear college friend, Mitch, gave me a
porcelain Snoopy angel. It hung on my par-
ents' tree until they moved to Florida in 1995.
It is the first ornament on our tree each year
as a way of honoring my mom's memory
and her passion for the season. This Snoopy
angel was her favorite ornament of all. She
was the first in the family to declare that it
wasn't officially Christmas until Snoopy was
"hangin' on" the tree. Once he was placed
on one of the highest branches, she would
then burst into her version of the McCoys'

Memories of life
My favorite ornament is an angel made from
small, delicate white chicken feathers attached to
a little wooden ball..The ball has a sweet, happy
expression painted on it. The feathers are dusted
with little sparkles of glitter, and she wears a
necklace of tiny pearls.
I always react with the same childlike delight
each year when she is gently lifted from the
pretty metal holiday box designated for special
ornaments.
I love this ornament because it reminds me of
my childhood. I grew up on a western Pennsyl-
vania dairy farm. Along with the cows came a
variety of other animals. My family raised leg-
horn chickens and sold the eggs. Leghorns have
white feathers with red combs and yellow legs


"Hang on Sloopy" substituting the words
"Hang on Snoopy."
The first Christmas my husband and I
were dating, I discovered that he had about
a dozen of these porcelain Snoopy ornaments
could this be Mr. Right?!
Earlier this year, I reconnected with Mitch
on Facebook and his first words to me were
"Is Snoopy still hanging on?" He was happy
to know that his simple gift was still a part
of our family's Christmas tradition.

on the dairy farm
and feet. I fed, watered and collected eggs from
those chickens for many years before leaving
home at 17 to find my life away from the farm.
I don't remember where I obtained my pre-
cious angel, but I do know it was December
1979. That year, I moved from Minneapolis to
Orlando and shortly before Christmas had moved
into my first home/condo. While shopping for
holiday decorations, the little angel caught my
eye and my heart.
Each year, she has a special location front and
' center on the Christmas tree, and each year she
takes me back to my childhood and the farm.

A father's childhood ornament


I have two special ornaments, and they actu-
ally hang on my mother's Christmas tree every
year. One is an angel made from construction
paper and colored with green crayon (the regu-
lar "angel" colors just wouldn't do) that I made
in kindergarten.
The other is a construction paper Santa with
a cotton ball beard that my father, who passed


away when I was 12, made when he was in
first grade at Winter Garden Elementary. That
would be in 1946... .The construction paper of
that era is pretty hearty stuff, and it's held up
rather well all these years!

Hodgepodge tree is full of love


As a child, my parents tree was a collage of
many ornaments my sisters and I made mixed
with the latest and coolest lights. We 'had a
star that blinked so many different colors that
it almost hypnotized you. We also had bubble
lights and icicle lights. So our tree was always
very interesting.
My Christmas tree now is full of ornaments
that my children made from the time they were
2 years old. I love them because they have pic-
tures on most and they remind me what my
children looked like in earlier Christmases.


I also love the ornament from my best friend,
who knew how badly I wanted to be a mother
and sent me a "mom-to-be" ornament. when
I was seven months pregnant with my first
child.
I never want to have a tree that looks like it
came out of a store window. I love my hodge-
podge Christmas tree.
It's a tree full of love.

Name in glitter still a favorite


My favorite ornament is one that I made near-
ly 24 years ago in kindergarten. It is a vintage,
satin, pearl-white ball with my name written
across the center of it with silver multi-colored
glitter.
It has always been my favorite ornament be-
cause growing up, my name was not too com-
mon. I loved seeing it written on anything and
everything.
V I


What makes it still so special is that although
the satin is all frayed and fuzzed, and although
the marker behind the glitter of my name has
bled down the satin ball my parents still
have it displayed "front and center" on ,their
Christmas tree each and every year.

Editor,
The Winter Garden Fire Rescue Department

From "A Bit of Sunshine" by Win Pendleton:
A minister was making his Sunday afternoon
calls. "Is your father home?" he asked the little
boy at the first home. "No sir, he's not here.
He's over at the country club." Then realizing
what he had told the minister, he tried quickly
to cover up for his father. "But he isn't playing
golf. He never plays golf on Sunday. He's just
over there having a drink and playing a few
hands of poker with some of his friends."

The major news story of Christmas week
was a sad one. The freezing-cold weather
broke records both nationwide and here in
Central Florida, causing death and damage.
Temperatures locally dipped into the very low
20s for a sustained period of time Christmas
Eve and morning. Jim Bock, general manager
of Winter Garden Citrus Products Coopera-
tive, said, "This was as severe a freeze as I've
ever seen."

Rittens hunt together
Tommy Ritten, a longtime resident of Ocoee spent Thanksgiving week at the family hunt-
ing camp in Wilson, N.C. with his 5 sons and 4 of his grandsons. The Rittens have been
getting together for the last 10 years for a family hunting trip, and this was the first time
Tommy and all of his sons hunted together. Iri the past, 1 or 2 could not make the trip.
The Rittens first started hunting in the Talladega National Forest in Alabama, where Jim-
my lives. The hunt moved to Wilson a couple of years ago after Tommy shot a big 8-point
buck while visiting with his son Craig, This year David's son, William, won the $50 Big
Buck prize with the 4-point buck he shot Thanksgiving evening. David was more excited
about it than William was. Michael's two sons, Cody, and Logan, got their first deer last
year, as did Jimmy's son Jacob. Paul's son, Colby got his first deer 2 years ago, followed
up by another deer last year. These hunting trips provide great fun and lasting memories.
Taking a break from hunting are (I-r, in front) Michael, Logan and Colby (middle) William,

Crossings Community
Church in Windermere created
what they hope will be a new
Christmas tradition this year in
response to the tough economic
times. The church asked mem-
bers and the community to give
back to those less fortunate for
12 days in December.
The congregation sponsored
a project called 12 Days of
Christmas to reach out to 12
Central Florida non-profits and
organizations that serve those
in need.
"The mission of the Cross-
ings is to connect the reality of
God to the reality of life," said
Ron Tewson, lead pastor,
"Although we normally hold
a Christmas Eve service, we're
replacing that single event this
year with 12 days of service in
our community. With the way
things are right now we figure
the best way to connect the
reality of God to real life is
to use our time and resources
to touch those who are really
hurting and in need. It's our
way of putting the 'serve' back
in 'service."'
Church members dropped
off boxes for Operation Christ-
mas Child to launch the 12-day
program.
. Volunteers joined with Bread
of Life Fellowship on Nov. 26
to sort grocery items at Ocoee
High School for the annual
Food For Families distribu-
tion.
On Thanksgiving, they
helped deliver those food
boxes to West Orange County
families in need.
The church volunteers host-
ed a Christmas party for chil-
dren at the Children's Home
Society, providing the Christ-
mas tree, crafts, cookies and
presents.
At a gathering Dec. 6 at Lake
Eola in Orlando, volunteers
participated in Breakfast in the
Park and distributed blankets
to the homeless.
The church partnered with
New Missions in a flip-flop
drive for children and adults


The Crossings volunteers sing Christmas carols to the
residents at Summerville Assisted Living.


in Haiti.
Another day, volunteers pre-
'pared goody bags and Christ-
mas cards for residents at
Summerville Assisted Living
in Ocoee and entertained them
by singing carols.
At the Christian Service
Center, volunteers reorganized
and made repairs to the food
pantry so it would be running
efficiently through the holi-
days.
For ACCEPT Pregnancy
Center, the church sponsored
a "White Christmas Party" for
teenage mothers and children
that included a layette collec-
tion, dinner, storytime and vis-
'its with Santa.
The program also reached
out to Step Women's Rehab,
a center that houses mothers

ened Christmas for two charter
school siblings, a second-grader
and a kindergartner.
"The idea was presented to
the varsity squad, and it was up
to them to make a decision if
they wanted to participate," said
project organizer Janice An-
gione, who works at the school
and whose son and daughter
also participated through the
baseball team and cheer squad.
She had asked the parents for
a wish list, which, was given to
the cheerleaders, and they ea-


gerly, brought in gifts and went
shopping together for a bike.
"The squad was not only ex-
cited about helping out a family
this Christmas but also learned
how rewarding giving these
children presents can be. Hope-
fully, we can make this a new
tradition," Angione said.
Another set of parents donat-
ed a bike for the boy.
The school nurse, Nan
Sheafer, helped Angione choose
the children who would receive
the gifts.

'My husband decorated this year'
Bevery Butts of 302 Sabinal St. in the Prima Vista subdivision in Ocoee turned in this
photo to the 'Times' to show how her husband, Keith, decorated their home for the holi-
days. 'My husband hates to drag down everything from the attic to decorate at Christmas.
Last year he said this Christmas he was going to be in charge of decorating the yard.
He just piled everything in a pile. The spiral trees are just laid on the ground, swimming
trees unassembled with the poles scattered, lights still unwound and all in disarray. He
plugged everything in, blew up Frosty laying on his side and made a sign that said: Hus-
band decorated this year.'


Ocoee city employees served guests at the buffet tables during the annual Christmas
dinner in the Ocoee Middle School cafeteria. The city hosts this dinner each year during
the holiday season.

Christmas comes early for families in need at Ocoee's annual dinner


Food Drive-
Jim Beech Recreation Center
and all three fire stations.
Commissioner Gary Hood,
who is heading up this drive
with volunteer Wayne Hurst,
encouraged everyone to sup-
port this drive and said he
hopes the city can continue this
drive all through next year.
Early this week, Wilsen told
The West Orange Times: "This
drive has been a blessing. The
city has collected more than
1,000 pounds of food, and it's
still going on."
She said the center has seen
a significant drop in donations
this year, along with a big in-
crease in requests for help and
participants in the Daily Bread
Program.
"Holiday donations usu-
ally last us for several months
after Christmas, but that will
not happen this year," she ex-
plained, "and we really need
protein items, such as canned
meats and tuna and canned
soup."
Commissioner Hood also
reported that the Ocoee Little
League is dropping its registra-
tion fee to $65 per child ($55
for each additional child in the
same family) so more children
could play ball.


Commissioner Rusty John-
son said he would sponsor a
child for the Little League pro-
gram and challenged others to
do the same.
In other business last week,
the elected officials:
heard from City Manager
Rob Frank that the city has
closed on a loan that refinanced
approximately $5.3 million in
utility bonds thus saving the
city $50,000; he also said that
the Finance Department is
looking at other things that can
be refinanced and will keep the
commission informed.

pany (Kevin Ives, Anne Mar-

held the first reading of a
proposed ordinance that would
lengthen the terms of the Gen-
eral Employees'Pension Board

discussed changing the terms
to three years and having all

fied pension board members
within that time. The second
reading and public hearing on
this matter will be held Jan. 6,
2009.


The city of Ocoee held its annu-
al Christmas dinner on Dec. 18 at
Ocoee Middle School and hosted
nearly 2,000 families that were
provided an appetizing dinner,
great gift selections for the kids,
photos with Santa and socializing
with friends and family.
Mayor Scott Vandergrift, city
commissioners Rusty Johnson
and Scott Anderson, City Man-
ager Rob Frank and Assistant
City Manager Jamie Croteau,


along with city employees, as-
sisted and served families by car-
rying plates, serving at the buffet,
table and helping give out prizes
to guests.
Items such as flat-screen televi-
sions, a sofa, 12 bikes and hun-
dreds of toys were handed out to
adults and kids, who were very
appreciative.
The Ocoee Middle School Red
Hot Sound was also in attendance,
singing Christmas carols and lift-


ing everyone's spirits.
With the help of donations from
local businesses, exceptional vol-
unteering from city employees
and great community support,
the city's annual dinner was a big
success. The city thanks the com-
panies who contributed: Broyhill
Hudson, Chick-fil-A, Honey
Baked Ham, House Blend, Ocoee
Lions Club, Rock Springs Foliage,
Starbucks, Sysco, Wal-Mart Su-
perCenter and West Oaks Mall.


Robert F. Stuart, executive director of the Christian Service Center (left) and Bishop
Brent Sauser of the Ocoee Ward stand in front of 740 pounds of food donated by the

City Commission meeting as part of the city's food drive in support of the West Orange

Foundation Academy basketball
sweeps Agape Christian


The boys varsity basketball
team from Foundation Academy
won its opening district contest
of the year with a thrilling 65-64
victory over Agape Christian.
The Lions led for most of
the game but had to battle off
an Agape team that would not
go away. Foundation led 33-
26 at the half and was able to
maintain its lead until late in
the fourth quarter when Agape
Christian's Claston Esterine
gave his team its first lead ,of
the game.
Josh Mansingh then scored
and put Foundation ahead, only
to have Esterine put Agape back
on top with the next possession.
Foundation found itself down
64-63 with less than a minute
remaining on the clock and in
need of another big play. Kenny
Strong, who led the Lions with
22 points, drove the lane and hit


a floater with 31 seconds left for
another lead change.
Foundation's defense then
stepped up to make one big play
and battled the last 31 seconds
without allowing Agape to put
up a final shot. The clock ex-
pired as the ball bounced out of
bounds, giving Foundation a 1-0
record in district play.
The Foundation girls varsity
basketball teamed (5-5) cruised
to an easy victory over Agape
63-25. Becca Richards led the
Lady Lions with 20 points, and
Mariah Lindsey scored 11. The
team, which is rebuilding from
last year's district championship
team that graduated four key se-
niors, has been improving after
a slow start.

complex will further enhance
our ability to provide a quality,
well-rounded education for our
students at all age levels," said
Kasey Kesselring, Montverde
Academy headmaster. "We are
very pleased to be able to work
with GatorSktch Architects, a
South Lake County firm. As


members, of the South Lake
Chamber of Commerce, the
support we lend to our partners
in South Lake is critical to our
present economic recovery
strategy."

emy offers a variety of athletic
programs and belongs to the
Florida High School Activities
Association. Montverde fields
teams for boys in baseball, golf,
cross country, track, basketball,

PowerPoint presentation on electrical conductivity during the bazaar. Westbrooke El-
ementary wishes everyone a very happy new year!


Montverde Academy


Every year the 5th-graders from Montverde Academy visit the Kennedy Space Center. In
preparation for this visit, students read and discuss several selections on space and pre-
pare themselves to make the most of this tour. This field trip furthers their knowledge and
brings their readings to life. Pictured are: (front row) Kevin McDonnell, Andrea Tatsch,
Gabi Salinas, Brook Sykes, Emma Tatro, Cinzia Provost, Melissa Mankewich, Keagan
Ferrell Clegg, Sean Pendergast, Tyler DeWitt, Konnor Kesselring and Robert Evens; and

Stanley, Sarah Ismail, Alexander La Plante, Nick Composto, Ryan Moore, Grace Carpen-
ter and Alex Williams.


Bridgewater Middle School students spread holiday cheer through their creative writing.
The school accepted the invitation to participate in Operation Seabees Christmas for the
Naval Construction Batallion 4, based at Port Hueneme, Calif. The Seabees are sailors
in charge of building projects for the military and for the communities where they are
stationed. NCB-4 will be deployed all over the world throughout the Christmas season.
The science classes of Mrs. Sookdeo, Mrs. Leisher and Mrs. Miller created hundreds of
Christmas cards for the Seabees. Mrs. Bermudez's Spanish class made bilingual cards,
and Mrs. Restivo's history class made cards with patriotic touches. Students in Mrs.
Bloor's and Ms. Savard's language arts classes created cards with poems, raps and
songs honoring the troops, and Ms. Perez's reading classes created holiday cards for the
many soldiers still in Iraq. Creating the cards for the Seabees are Ashley Forbes, Rachel
Loftin, Avree Hutchinson, Jessica Partain and Alexis Patterson. of Miller's class.

TEACHER

OF THE YEAR

Maxey Elementary's Teacher of the Year is Nathan Hay, a
3rd-grade teacher


Liana Hulcher helps Dillard Street Elementary student Em-
ily Rees select a book during the school's recent inaugu-
ral book exchange. Students were encouraged to bring
in gently used books from home in exchange for tickets.
Books were collected for a week, and students then used
their tickets to 'purchase' different books. More than 1,000
were collected. Spearheaded by Hulcher, the project al-
lowed students to swap out the books they've already
read for new books to enjoy. DSES extends a big thank-
you to all the parents and students who donated books
and those who helped out during the event.


Bay Meadows Elementary Teacher of the Year is Pam Fris-
by, who teaches 4th grade. The Support Person of the
Year is Rubina Momin, the ESOL paraprofessional.

Have you saved room in your Christmas for
Him?
I love the Christmas season. I love the sights
and sounds of Christmas. But I have to con-
fess that at times it is all just a bit overwhelm-
ing.. If I'm not careful, I find myself rushing
from one event to another, with back to back
commitments and little time for much else.
It was in a quiet moment last evening that
I was reminded again of the importance of
remembering the real reason for all of the
celebration and preparation. In one of those
rare moments when a Grandma gets to tuck
children into bed, I sat with my four year old
grandson, Jackson. He carefully placed his
advent calendar on my lap. It is of the cloth
variety, with an embroidered creche, and
Velcro circles scattered about. Below the
creche, the numbers one through twenty-five
are embroidered and a cast of characters from
the first Christmas are attached to each with

Velcro. Shepherds, angels, various animals,
even some palm trees are included. And of
course, on Day 25, the manger, filled with the
infant Savior, awaits placement. Last night
was day 18. A bale of hay was attached to the
number, and Jackson urged me to place it on
the creche above. Without much thought, I
suggested a spot near the center of the scene.
He protested, "No, Grandma! That is the place
for Baby Jesus...right in the center." The bale
of hay was placed elsewhere and we continued
with bedtime prayers.
As I recounted my evening later to my hus-
band, my heart stirred and I knew this was
about more than an advent calendar. I clearly
saw the message: In these days of preparation
for Christmas, we must guard the center so that
there is room for Jesus in our Christmas. May
you have a blessed, Christ-centered Christmas.

West Orange High


(


West Orange High ROTC and business students (above and below) participated in a
presentation on Iraqi culture at the Orange County Convention Center on Dec. 4. The Ta-
titlek Corporation uses these presentations to train U.S. military forces on how to interact
properly according to local Iraqi cultural norms prior to being deployed.


Recently, the Ocoee High School National Honor Society inducted 119 new members.
Rick Kann, OHS Teacher of the Year, and Michelle Grogan, OHS Staff Person of the
Year, delivered messages of warmth and praise, with' some good advice thrown in for
the students. Above, Dylan Conner lights the candle of Cassandra Christie during the
ceremony. Following the oath and induction of the new members, an hors d'oeuvres
reception was held for family and friends.


Students in Mrs. Davis's VPK class at Ocoee High School were in for a big surprise when
they got a special visit from a singing Santa Claus. After a sing-along, students were
given wrapped presents from the man in red.

hosted a seasonal party for
the Maxey Elementary kinder-
garten classes.


MetroWest Elementary kindergarten and 1st-grade dual language classes held a pot-
luck dinner recently. The students performed songs in both English and Spanish. This
