2008 offered challenges


to local municipalities


By Mary Anne Swickerath

The four local municipalities in West Orange
County had to deal with decreased revenues
and increased demand for services and need for
projects in 2008.

OAKLAND
Oakland's biggest story of the year, accord-
ing to Town Manager Maureen Rischitelli, was
the use of Community Development Block
Grant and Orange County SHIP funds to pro-
vide housing rehabilitation and new housing to
14 low-income residents, an effort that greatly
improved the lives of citizens.
Oakland also saw the completion of the West
Orange Habitat for Humanity's Home at Last
program to build a new home for Sgt. Joshua
Cope, a disabled Iraqi war vet- .--.l,
eran, and his family, as well as .
the completion of the town's .
Comprehensive Plan and the
Oakland Nature Preserve En-
vironmental Education Center
and the success of the Heritage -
Day Festival and Triple A Fes- ye
tival as community events.
In addition, the town had 4.~ ,
to deal with serious water is- -
sues. At the beginning of -
2008, Oakland was facing a "
quarter-million-gallon defi- "

first-ever water system master See our 200

Oakland, like all other municipalities, had to

OCOEE
City Manager Rob Frank told The West Or-
ange Times the top story in Ocoee was how the
city responded to the budget crisis. With the
cuts in department expenditures, the deletion of
positions and the modernizing of how the city
operates, "we become more efficient with tax
dollars," he said.
The creation and improvements of parks was
also a major accomplishment in 2008, espe-
cially the complete renovation of Central Park
on Flewelling Drive, a $600,000 project that
included impressive improvements to the Lit-
tle League complex and 'the building of a new
state-of-the-art playground.
The city and Orange County completed a
joint project that rehabilitated the streets, drain-
age and utilities in the Pioneer Key II neigh-
S.-' borhood. Service connections
'" .-i to each residence were also
replaced.
"We had lots of projects this
year," said Frank.

Garden Theatre to

present 'Parallel Lives'


In conjunction with Mar-
tin Luther King Jr. Day on
Monday, Jan. 19, and the
Presidential Inauguration on
Tuesday, Jan. 20, the Garden
Theatre will present Parallel
Lives for three performances
only Jan. 9 and 10 at 8 p.m.
and Jan. 11 at 2 p.m. The the-
ater is in downtown Winter
Garden.
The city of Winter Garden
is also hosting the first Mar-
tin Luther King Jr. Celebra-
tion on Jan. 19.
The play tells the story of
two writers who grew up in
segregated Central Florida
during the final days of the
Jim Crow era.
Directed by Jerry Klein,
the dramatic documentary
follows a black man and a
white woman confronting the
effects of their divided world
by touring Florida's historic
"lynching belt." Peg O'Keef
and Joe Reed, two seasoned
Orlando actors, portray the
original authors of the play.
Co-authqrs Beverly Coyle


and Bill Maxwell came to-
gether in 1998 when the
Florida Humanities Council
commissioned each of them
to write an essay recording
their memories of being the
last generation to grow up in
legally segregated Florida.
In 2002 the St. Petersburg
Times gave the council a
grant so Coyle and Maxwell
could turn their readings into
a full-fledged play and hire
actors and a director. The
production was originally
mounted at Seminole Com-
munity College.
The Garden Theatre pre-
sentation is the professional
premiere. The performances
are intended for mature audi-
ences and will be followed
by moderated discussion fo-
rums about racism past
and present.
Tickets are $22 ($18 for
seniors/college students).
For tickets or additional in-
formation, call the box of-
fice at 407-877-4736 or visit

Volunteer's dedication

benefits VPA students


By Lani Llanes

Clocking in more than 2,000
hours a year, John Cornell is at
Dr. Phillips High School more.
than some of the teachers and
has been a volunteer longer
than most of the students there
have been alive.
It all began at a dance re-
cital when a teacher spotted
him in the audience recording
his daughter's performance in
the school auditorium. This in-
structor thought it would be a
great learning tool for the stu-
dents to be able to see them-
selves up on stage, so Cornell
was asked to record every-
one's performance. Eagerly he
accepted and taped the recital
in its entirety.
Before he knew it, Cor-
nell was in great demand and
started taping everything from
band performances, football
games and cheerleading prac-
tices to choir recitals and stu-
dent music videos.
"I want to capture moments


and memories, but when I
shoot, I am making memo-
ries," said Comell.
When he wasn't behind
a camera, Cornell could be
found selling snacks in the Dr.
Phillips concession stand, and
on the weekends he has helped
solicit donations to benefit dif-
ferent school programs like
the band.
Naturally, ComelFs home
base at Dr. Phillips is in the
television production room,
where he spends a majority
of his time helping perfect the
visual and performing arts stu-
dents' videdgraphy skills.
"I have been there and done
it myself, and now it's my job
to motivate the next genera-
tion," he said.
Growing up -with a pas-
sion for capturing memories
through a lens, Cornell was
given his first 8 mm movie
camera by his father as a
young boy. He then used

Local police and fire reports


Police respond to
shooting Friday a.m.
Just before 2 a.m. Friday,
Orange County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO) patrol units
responded to a call of shots
fired at the comer of Silver
Star and Hiawassee roads.
When officers arrived at
the scene, they found a ve-
hicle that had been hit with
multiple gunshots. Deputies
said the victims tried to run
but both were injured and
did not get very far. Both
victims were transported to
area hospitals.
After a description of the
suspect's vehicle was re-
leased, the Ocoee Police De-
partment identified a vehicle
matching the description
at the comer of Clarke and
Clarcona-Ocoee roads. Of-
ficers followed the vehicle
until they reached Hyland
Oaks Drive and Hiawassee
Road, where they made an
official stop.
An Ocoee officer, whose
name was not released, re-
ported seeing a handgun be-
ing raised and, in defense,
rammed the vehicle with
his squad car. The driver of
the car tried to run but was
apprehended and was ques-
tioned. A handgun and am-
munition were found in the
vehicle, and the Ocoee offi-
cer was taken to Health Cen-
tral but was uninjured.


As of Monday, no arrests
had been made, according
to the OCSO report. OCSO
detectives are continuing the
investigation.

Challenges
a lengthy and complicated me-
diation process. The county and
the town argued about how fire,
rescue and emergency services
would be provided to the an-
nexed area. In the end, a me-
diation agreement resolved the
dispute.
The biggest issue, she said,
was acquiring the easements
needed for traffic and pedes-
trian improvements for the in-
tersection of Park Avenue and
Maguire Road near Windermere
Elementary School.
Among the town's accom-
plishments for 2008 were
balancing the budget without
raising taxes, installing a new
park and playground at Central
Park, renovating and install-
ing new park equipment at the
street ends of Third and Fourth
avenues as part of the Lake
Street Park improvements, the
establishment of goals and poli-
cies in a daylong workshop and
training session, the annexation
of Butler Bay Unit 1, the repair
and renovation of the Franklin
W. Chase Library, the facelift to
the town's community building,

his newly acquired knowledge
and went to work for a nearby
movie theater as a projection-
ist. Shortly thereafter, he land-
ed a job in Colorado Springs,
where his family was living at
the time, in the telescene room
at the local news station.
A few years later, Cornell
joined the Army and continued
to use his talent working in the
Armed Forces Radio and Tele-
vision Service. For 14 years he
served his country by making
training videos, contributing to
television training manuals and
composing documentaries.
However, Cornell's career
with the Army ended abruptly
with the discovery of a brain
tumor. With doctors giving

the repair and renovation of the
exterior of Town Hall, the resur-
facing of North Oakdale Street
and the completion of plans for
several stormwater management
improvements.

WINTER GARDEN
"One of our major accom-
plishments this year is the con-
tinuation of the most significant
capital projects program in the
history of Winter Garden," said
City Manager Mike Bollhoe-
fer. "We completed the new
City Hall, the new fire station
on Daniels Road, converting
the old City Hall into a police
station, the $1-million renova-
tion of Zanders Park and several
other projects."
This year, the city is building
a $2.75-million park in the south
part of town and is spending
$2.5 million to convert the old
elementary school into a recre-
ation center. In addition, over the
next five years, Winter Garden
will be spending more than $60
million on capital projects.
"Another major accomplish-


him only six months to live,

to win.
After having surgery to re-
move the tumor, he spent a year
in the hospital recovering. Left
with some short- and long-term
memory loss, Cornell is still
thankful for his second chance
at life.
"I have served my country,
and now it's my job to serve
my community, my city, my
state and my school," said
Cornell.
When he's not at Dr. Phil-
lips High School, Cornell gives

Cross Catholic Church and
welcomes families of children

ment is the success of our
downtown," said Bollhoefer.
"With the nationwide econom-
ic downturn, our downtown is
continuing to thrive with new
restaurants and stores. We have
had difficulties and lost some
business; however, more have
moved in, and we are faring
much better than other down-
towns in Central Florida."
According to the city manag-
er, the city's new Citizens-Based
Performance Budget and Man-
agement System has enabled the
government to be more efficient
and effective, Winter Garden has
one of the lowest property-tax
rates in all of Central Florida,
and the city's ratio of employees
to residents is 9.6 per thousand
residents, one of the lowest in
the state.
"We have truly managed to do
more with less," said Bollhoefer.
"We are one of a handful of cit-
ies in Florida that was able not
to raise taxes or reduce services
this year. We clearly are well on
our way to being the best small
city in the state and the best
managed city in the state."

Cornell and his wife, Kath-
leen, who was his middle-
school sweetheart, are the par-
ents of three children, John Jr.,
Marie and Darrel; and grand-
parents to three grandsons,
Zachary, Dustin and Chase.
Paid in smiles, Cornell says
the reason he dedicates so much
of his time to volunteering is
the way it makes him feel.
"If I can get a light bulb to
come on, I got that spark of in-
telligence for them to come on,
it's all worth it," he said.
Cornell has been volunteer-
ing at Dr. Phillips High School
since 1989 and has no plans for
retirement.

Pounds
when they were 11, sweeping the
floors for $2 an hour.
Brian Pounds recalls being "the
only kid in town with a bicycle
and a pocketful of money."
Little did he know that he
would remain with the Pounds
company for most of the next two
decades, rising through the ranks
from broom-pusher to owner.
"What better job to have than
to carry on the family name?"
he said in an interview last week
with The West Orange Times.
"It's too good of a business to
close the doors."
Assisting Brian is Richard
Dorr, whom he hired as the
store manager because of his
experience in the industry. Four
employees from the Plant Street
location also moved to the new
building.
Brian Pounds wanted the
business to continue bearing
the family name but felt "Motor
Company" no longer accurately
reflected the product. He said that
as a full-line service lawn equip-
ment dealer, he can get any part
a customer needs.
Some of his clients have been
faithful customers for more than
40 years, continuing to come back
even as the industry changed.
When the freezes of the 1980s
decreased the number of citrus
groves and farmers in the area,
the business started selling lawn
equipment to offer a product for
citrus growers-turned-real estate
developers.
Pounds said his business phi-
losophy is simple: to offer a fair
price, to have a service depart-
ment that gives "110 percent,"
and to tell people what they want
to hear "and then stand behind
it."
Currently living in Oviedo
with his wife, Tanya, Brian grew
up in Winter Garden, attend-
ing Dillard Street Elementary,
Lakeview Middle and West Or-
ange High School. He was born
at the former West Orange Hos-
pital on North Dillard Street, not
too far from the downtown. He
also has his captain's license and
owns Southern Fishing Charters
based out of Oviedo.
The city of Winter Garden pur-
chased Pounds Motors' two back
lots (one of which was the ma-
chine shop) and the old gas sta-
tion property (where the weekly
farmers' market sets up). Birket
Engineering bought the building
and is renovating the interior be-
fore moving in.

All wrapped up
Next Community Church, in partnership with Ezekiel Ministries, Ocoee Oaks United Meth-
odist Church and WellCare, helped provide Christmas for nearly 100 families throughout
West Orange County. This year's Annual Christmas for Kids Gift-Wrapping Party took
place at the Oakland Town Meeting Hall on a recent Wednesday. Pastor Scott Billue said
he was overwhelmed by the generosity of those involved during these tough economic
times and reminded all that 'if we all do just a little, much can be accomplished.'

Plenty of history
There's a lot of history in that brick building at Lakeview
and Plant. It was here that Hoyle Pounds sold Model T Ford
cars downstairs and repaired tractors (lifted on a huge freight
elevator) upstairs. Here that he figured out a way to mount
rubber tires on a tractor and patented the idea. Here that he
outfitted customers' tractors with an extra gear to increase
speed.
It was here that he served 42 years as fire chief, operating
the city's first fire department, which was made up of Pounds
employees pulling double duty as volunteer firefighters.
Automobile manufacturer Henry Ford once visited the site.
The building served as a temporary bank in the 1930s when
the bank a few doors down was being renovated.
And when a fire broke out anywhere in the city, the fire
department was called and a siren went off, alerting the vol-
unteer firefighters at Pounds. All the employees upstairs,
downstairs, in the machine shop dropped their tools, ran
the block to the firehouse, jumped on the trucks and headed
toward the fire.
Hoyle Pounds wrote a history of the Winter Garden Fire
Department in 1955.
It reads, in part: "The shop crew and myself took the re-
sponsibility of trying to operate as a fire department with
the equipment they had on hand, which consisted of two
35-gallon chemical tanks mounted on an axle. The first time
we went to use this machine, someone turned the handle
loose and it turned upside down and discharged before we
got to the fire.
"Then we mounted these two tanks on a Model T car chas-
sis. They were so heavy that if two men got on the back, the
front end wouldn't stay on the ground."

Letters to the editor


Thank you for the Reading Reindeer books


We spent a week at Sanibel and Captiva is-
lands when our daughters, Taylor and Kather-
ine, were very young. Kate was just a toddler,
and I barely remember anything about the trip
except chasing her up and down the beach!
Without me knowing, my husband, John, filled
a bucket with beach sand and tiny shells and
presented it to me when we returned home to
Winter Garden, so I "wouldn't forget my va-


cation."
We purchased clear glass Christmas balls and
filled them halfway with the beach sand and
shells, tied them off with ribbons, and those
ornaments still grace our tree every year and
do remind me of our trip.

Editor:
Once again this year, thank you so very
much for your donation of books for our
clients for Christmas. They were wrapped and
given to the kids at their party Dec. 22. They
were excited about them and couldn't wait to
start reading them.
As always, your generosity is much
appreciated.


Our best wishes to you and your staff for a
very happy holiday season and a happy and
prosperous New Year.

Peterbrooke Chocolatier sweetens life in West Orange


By Mary Anne Swickerath
Phil and Nancy Bresson say
that chocolate makes people
happy, and they should know
- they are professionals.
They're the owners,-of the Pe-
terbrooke Chocolatier store in
Winter Garden Village at Fowl-
er Groves, a popular business
that has been open a little more
than a year.
"We have happy customers
and no complaints," said Phil.
"We see people when they are
in a good mood, buying choco-
late."
And the past year has put
the Bressons in a happy mood,
too.
"This Christmas season has
been very good for us," said
Nancy, "even better than last
year when there was construc-
tion going on all around us. We
foresee a good future here in
Winter Garden."
She explained that Peter-
brooke Chocolatier is basically
a gift store offering a wide vari-
ety of items made of premium
Swiss dark, milk and white
chocolate. There are chocolate-
covered potato chips, pretzels,
popcorn, Ritz crackers, Oreos
and Nutter Butters and (by the
bulk) chocolate-covered blue-
berries, almonds, cherries, pea-
nuts, cranberries and raisins.
And, of course, boxes of can-
dy and solid chocolate items,
such as Santas for Christmas,
Stars of David for Hanukkah
and bunnies for Easter.
But there are also chocolate-
molded business cards, sand
dollars, iPods, cell phones, flip
flops, dogs, cats, ballerinas and
pizzas.
"If you can think it up, it can
be made out of chocolate," said
Phil.
All you need to do is give the
Bressons one-day's notice for
special orders.
One of their most popular
hostess gifts is a bottle of cham-
pagne covered in chocolate (the
customer furnishes the cham-
pagne). The bottle is covered

first in plastic then in choco-
late. The chocolate is broken
off, the champagne is opened,
and strawberries are served on
the side.
Also popular is Peterbrooke's
line of sugar-free chocolates for
guilt-free indulgence.
Home bakers will also be
interested in the section filled


with chocolate chips, ground
chocolate and a flourless
chocolate cake mix complete
with pan.
The Bressons came to Florida
from Ohio by way of Jackson-
ville (where they first received
Peterbrooke chocolate as a gift).
He works for Marriott Hotels,
and she is a certified public ac-


countant. But they spend a lot
of time in their store to make
sure their customers remain
happy. They are looking for-
ward to Valentine's Day when
they will be featuring choco-
late-dipped strawberries in a
heart-shaped box.
In addition to all these riches,
the Bressons also sell Ital-


ian gelato from Stefano's of
Michigan.
The store, located at 3310
Daniels Road near Cracker
Barrel, is open Monday through
Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

Social


Bev Daniels waits to be served during a special dinner to Turner-Hall engagement
celebrate the end of her cancer treatments. Carl and Dinky Hall announce the engagement of their
son, Dustin Hall, to Desiree Turner, the daughter of Dana
r iand Joseph Ciaramitaro and Steve Turner. The wedding
Winter Garden resident date has not been set.


On Monday evening, Dec.
22, Bev Daniels of Winter Gar-
den finished a five-year journey
of treatments for breast cancer
as she took her last Tamoxifen
pill. It was time to celebrate,
so her husband, Merv, chose
the Sweet Traditions French
Restaurant in downtown Win-
ter Garden for dinner on Tues-
day.
When he approached
Christine Crocher, the owner,
to make arrangements, he also
shared the reason for the cel-
ebration. He told her that he
wanted to bring in a vase with
five pink roses, a pink candle
and a Precious Moments angel
figure, "Heavenly Messenger
of Hope," to represent what
Bev has been to many others
during this time all to be
used on the table.
Christine and the staff were
happy they were going to have
a part in this. special night. One
of the staff members said that
she had a gold tablecloth she


wanted to bring in.
When the Daniels walked
into the restaurant Tuesday
evening, Christine led them to
the back of the restaurant to a
beautifully arranged table. Chef
Jerome had prepared a special
main course that was, accord-
ing to Merv, not only perfect
in taste but also in appearance
with a sculptured rose on Bev's
plate.
"It's like what you see in the
movies" was Bev's comment.
After dinner the couple at-
tended the performance of
In His Name...We Dance! We
Sing! at the Garden Theatre.
"What a Blessing it is to live
in Winter Garden, a city that
still believes in celebrating the
real reason for the season,"
Merv said.
Looking to the New Year and
the future, Bev received a note
from Barbara Pennington, a fel-
low survivor, that ended with
"Goodbye Tamoxifen and
Hello Life!"

Top sports moments of 2008


By Michael Laval

West Orange County saw
its share of dramatic sporting
events, individual accomplish-
ments and team championships
in 2008. Here's a look back on
some of the top moments.

Winter/spring
In January, West Orange High
named Chip Petree as the suc-
cessor to Tim Smith, who had
coached the Warrior football
team for 17 years. Petree came
to WOHS from West Forsyth
High in Clemmons, N.C.,
where he won back-to-back
4A conference championships
and earned four straight playoff
appearances.
The Ocoee High varsity
boys soccer team dominated
early 2008 through the regu-
lar season and playoffs. The
Knights advanced to the Class
6A Final Four championship,
where they fell 3-0 to Weston
Cypress Bay after entering the
state semifinal on an eight-
game winning streak. Ocoee
finished with a school-best
23-2-3 record and won both
the Metro Conference and re-
gional titles.
Ocoee soccer stars Josue
Rivera, Ricardo Rosas and
Kejoun Benjamin earned All-
Metro Conference First-Team
selections.
Olympia High soccer also
produced a strong season, fin-
ishing as district runner-up with
a last-minute loss to Ocoee. Ti-
tan Coach Fraser Allan's teams
had posted a combined 30-7-7
record over the past two sea-
sons. Aron Hotalen, Andrew
Duncanson and Tyson Pryor all
earned All-Metro Conference
First Team honors. Hotalen and
Pryor also garnered all-state se-
lections.

propel the Knights to a 12-7
victory. Wes Venturino, Kevin

Chris Coleman rounded out the
scoring.

15-11. The Lady Titans fin-
ished with a school-best 15-2
record.

finished in fourth place for dis-
cus-throw event. In May, For-
sythe finished sixth in the shot
put event at the state 4A track
and field finals with a throw of
38 feet, nine inches.
One of the region's most
dominant spring teams, Lady
Warrior varsity fastpitch
softball, entered the district
playoffs on fire after finishing
the regular season 19-4. WOHS
hosted the district tournament
and defeated East Ridgq 6-1
in the finals behind a three-hit,
nine-strikeout performance by
pitching ace Taylor Fawbush,
who also went three-for-four at
the plate. Through three tourna-
ment games, Fawbush allowed

varsity baseball team, capped
his extensive summer baseball
season by earning a spot on the
USA 18U National Baseball
Team and winning a silver
medal at the IBAF AAA World
Junior Championships in Ed-
monton, Alberta, Canada.
Fontana's summer began
with the Orlando Scorpions
18U travel team, which went
14-2 before he departed from
his teammates to attend the
Perfect Game's National Invi-
tational Showcase in Minne-
apolis. He then participated in
the prestigious USA Baseball
Tournament of Stars Invita-
tional in Cary, N.C., which was
composed of 144 top-ranked
players from throughout the
United States. Based on his
play at the Tournament of
Stars, Fontana was selected to
the 34-player USA 18U Na-
tional Trial Team roster.
At the week-long USA trials
in Phoenix, Fontana compiled
a .450 batting average and .542
on-base percent to secure his
placement on the 18-man Team
USA international roster.
At the World Champion-
ships, Fontana started all eight
games at shortstop and was the
team's leadoff batter. Team
USA was undefeated at 14-0

Lady Warrior soccer looks to finish strong


The West Orange High
Lady Warrior soccer team's
offensive woes continued
as it managed only one goal
in three games played the
week prior to the holiday
break. The West Orange de-
fense played tough and shut
down a high-powered Olym-
pia offense in a scoreless
tie. The Lady Warriors then
traveled to play defending
district champion Edgewater
and went lost 1-0 on a pen-
alty kick in the second half.
West Orange junior Kelly
Lopez broke the scoring
drought in the second half
against South Lake, but it
wasn't enough to overcome
two quick South Lake goals
in the first half, and the Lady
Warriors headed into the hol-
iday break with a 2-1 loss.
West Orange looks to gain
ground in the district tour-
nament seeding with four
games, including Senior
Night, set for the first week
back from the holiday break.
Sophomore goalie Tori
Brown has logged nine shut-
outs in 14 games this season

Group mentoring
West Orange High is seek-
ing adult volunteers to lead
the "Teach One to Lead One-
Living Principles!" (T1L1-LP)
group mentoring program.
This is the follow-up to last
year's successful "Chosen
1's" program. This year the
program hopefully will be ex-
panded to reach all WOHS
freshmen.
T1L1-LP is a team-mentor-
ing program that enables a
person to bring the philoso-
phy behind it to the commu-
nity. The philosophy introduc-
es young people to universal
ethical principals, such as in-
tegrity, positive relationships,
healthy habits and positive
influence among their peers.
In the T1L1 program, stu-
dents are encouraged to seek
truth and begin asking ques-
tions of significance regarding
their lives and their future.
The adult mentors are
needed to love the kids un-
conditionally, teach truth, build
relationships, encourage, give
hope and role model a life of
integrity.
The next mentoring infor-
mation and training sessions
at the school will be Jan. 7 at
1 and 4 p.m. A person must
first become a registered AD-
Ditions volunteer.

Schools kindergarteners are
passing the Dynamic Indicators
of Basic Early Literacy Skills
test (DIBELS) than last school
year. The process measures
sound and alphabet recognition
while a student is within the first
30 days of kindergarten.


Among the top seven urban
districts in Florida, Orange ranks
first in Initial Sound (ability to
identify the sound a letter makes)
and second in Letter Naming
(ability to recognize letters).
OCPS kindergartners are also
improving in classroom readi-

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


It has been a wonderful time as we have come
through another Christmas season, with cooler
temperatures and lots of holiday busyness all
around us. It is a time when we all seem a little
kinder, more willing to suffer long lines and
grouchy people in the stores, and for most, a time
to not only see the blessing of God in our lives, but
to see the hurt in those all around us and respond
to it as best we can. The Christmas season seems
to bring into sharper focus the abundance of His
blessings. The beauty of lighted trees, ornaments
hanging from every lamp post and business around
town, and all the houses around the city decorated'
so brightly makes me want Christmas to last all
year long.
The beauty of it all is that it can.
In John 10:10, Jesus says,".. .1 have come that
you may have life, abundant life!"
You see, friends, abundance is not measured by
God the way many of us measure it. It has nothing
to do with the size of your home, car, or bank ac-
count. It is measured by the absolute love that God

showed us when, on a day that we celebrate as
Christmas; God Himself gave the biggest, most
precious gift ever given. He began in a tiny manger
in Bethlehem to set into motion the earthly life that
would be sacrificed for us, all of us who accept His
great offer of love,
Many people today have tried sincerely to unite
all mankind, regardless of their respective beliefs.
"Happy Holidays" has been used to replace "Mer-
ry Christmas" this year more than any I can re-
member, in essence to make us all one big happy
family.
Jesus said in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth,.
and the life; no one comes to God except through
Me." There is only one way to have that relation-
ship with God; by believing in the Son.
Then, we can experience the true meaning of
this Christmas season all year long.
Jesus IS the reason for the season!

Ocoee High


The cadets in the Ocoee High RC club extend a special thank-you to the president of the
Bay City Flyers, Charlie Poulton. They also want to thank retired Lt. Col. Sweetwine for
taking the time to take the cadets to the Land 0 Lakes field.


Cadet field trip
The Ocoee High Radio Con-
trol Club participated in another
trip to the Bay City Flyers flying
field. Ten cadets participated,
and all went home with a bet-
ter appreciation for the hobby.
Each had a wonderful time and
several fun stories to share


with the unit back at OHS.
The cadets enjoyed a he-
licopter flight demonstration
performed by Rolondo XXX,
Bay City Flyer club member.
Then, after a safety briefing by
retired Lt. Col. Poulton, the ca-
dets took to the skies under the
tutelage of several INTRO pi-


lots. Special thanks go to club
member Bruce Baltara, who
made sure enough qualified
pilots were available.
The cadets were happy with
the certificates they received.
These framed certificates were
prepared by Bay City Flyer
member Joe Barzyz.


Whispering Oak


Whispering Oak Elementary recently established its first chapter of the National Ele-
mentary Honor Society. Fourth- and fifth-grade students were selected based on.their

Dillard Street


Leadership students at Ocoee High presented a T-shirt and a grab-and-go breakfast to
all of the bus drivers 2 days before the winter break in appreciation for all that they do
for the students. The T-shirts had an outline of a school bus on the front with the words
'Driving Our Students to Graduation' inside the bus. The drivers all wore their shirts in
appreciation to the students and posed for a group shot.


TONY URQUHART


Recently, members of the Ocoee High choral program visited Arnold Palmer Hospital
for Children to distribute toys and to sing for the patients. Jason Misner, choral direc-
tor, said: 'The kids sang and gave out presents to these children. It was difficult at times
for them, but I was very proud, especially when the patients started requesting songs
and our kids just sang their hearts out. The young girl in the middle of the picture our
students fell in love with. I later told them that she has a brain tumor, and it put their lives
into perspective.'

MetroWest Elementary 5th-graders Christina Kim, Daria
Rios, Travis White and Spencer Segal explain their selec-
tions of gifts.


Top 10 holiday gifts
MetroWest Elementary fifth-
graders were asked what they
would give as a gift to another
student less fortunate than
they. The students also shared
the reasons for their choices.
After a week of voting, the
Top 10 gifts (in no particular
order) were: a family game (so
the family could remain close
and feel the love); money to
buy essentials like food, water


and clothes; a ball (to get ex-
ercise and have fun); a cuddly
toy to hold when it's scary; the
Holy Bible to get comfort from
the word of God; a puppy to
have as a friend other than a
human; a gift card to buy food
and clothes; friendship (to have
someone to talk to); a doll to
hug it and make your very best
friend; and a locket to collect
memories and look back on
hard times many years later.


Frangus Elementary student
Kayli Murphy in Mrs. De-
Vane's kindergarten class
brought in $325 in donations
for the school fund-raiser
called 'Stride for Success.'
She was the top prizewinner
for the school. On Nov. 14
each student walked or ran
laps around the campus to
raise funds for school activi-
ties. and events. FES would
like to thank all those who
helped make the fund-raiser
a success. A total of $12,500
was collected from family,
friends and businesses.


Poet honored
"Owls," a poem by Montverde
Academy faculty member Troy
Urquhart, has been nominated
for the Pushcart Prize. Begun
in 1976, the -Pushcart Prize is
an annual anthology of stories,
poems, essays and memoirs se-
lected from small magazines and
presses around the world.
Small magazine and book
press editors may nominate up
to six literary works for possi-
ble entry in the following year's
Pushcart publication.
Urquhart, who teaches English
in the academy's Upper School,
said he began writing the poem
after listening to two owls call to
each other at dusk. The poem is
a villanelle, a traditional French
form that first appeared in Eng-
lish in the 19th century.
"The villanelle's form suited
the feelings of loss and longing
I was working to capture in the
poem," Urquhart said. "The vil-
lanelle's repeated lines seemed
to recreate the call and response
of the owls."
The poem first appeared in
the fall 2008 edition of Willows
Wept Review, which is edited by
Molly Gaudry. Gaudry described
her selection of the poem as fol-
lows:
'"Willows Wept Review' is an
online literary journal devoted
to showcasing contemporary
nature writing from emerging
and established writers. Troy
Urquhart's stunning contribu-
tion, a villanelle titled 'Owls,'
does what the best poems do;
it offers lasting images, an un-
forgettable speaker and precise
rhythms fine-tuned to the nu-
ances of language. But most
impressive to me as I accepted
the poem was the simple fact
that 'Owls' also tells a story
- a story of longing, desire
and passion a story all the
more powerful given the haunt-
ing echoes offered by the vil-
lanelle's formal structure a
love story, perhaps, which is
something rarely granted to non-
speaking, non-human subjects
even in more experimental and
non-traditional nature writing.
"To have as strong a piece as
'Owls' included in the inaugural
issue of 'Willows Wept Review'
will most certainly aid in the
longevity and overall success of
the project. For these many rea-
sons, my decision to nominate
'Owls' for the Pushcart Prize
was simple, and I am honored
to have been given the oppor-
tunity to do so."
The winners of the prize are
expected to be announced in
May.


Congratulations to Wanda Smith, who was named Dil-
lard Street Elementary's Teacher of the Year for 2008-09.
Smith, who currently teaches 3rd grade, has been teach-
ing for 28 years. She was nominated by her peers for her
dedication to her students and phenomenal work ethic.
Lisa Recca, assistant principal, and Mark Shanoff, princi-
pal, congratulate Smith (center).
