Roper YMCA keeping pace with West Orange growth
By Michael Laval Florida YMCA branch with the
addition of 6,800 square feet,
After a multi-million-dollar doubling its previous size. The
*enovation in .2004 tripled the wellness center addition sits at
size of the old West Orange the facility's southwest comer,
YMCA, it didn't take long for behind the gymnasium. Floor- --- --
he new Roper YMCA Family to-ceiling windows on the ;


Center to hit another growth
spurt.
Overwhelming demand
mandated the state-of-the-art
facility's expansion by 10,000
square feet in order to accom-
modate the ever-growing West
Orange community. YMCA
and local officials will cel-
ebrate the Roper center's
$3.5-million additions this
month, although Y members
have already begun enjoying
an enlarged wellness center,
while a new aerobics room
and a doubled child develop-
ment area are nearing comple-
tion.
"We want the people of West
Orange to know that the Y is
growing to meet their needs,"
Wayne Humphrey, vice presi-
dent, Central Florida YMCA,
told The West Orange Times
last week.
The Roper Y now boasts the
largest wellness center (main
exercise area) of any Central


southern wall provide views
of youth soccer fields.
"Members feel this is a
whole new gym, even though
it's the same amount of equip-
ment," according to Julie
Sundstrom, Roper YMCA ex-
ecutive director.
The Roper Y's new child
development 'complex, which
will grow by approximately
1,100 square feet, will ensure
access for all children of mem-
ber families when it opens later
this month, Sundstrom added.
More early childhood de-
velopment learning tools and
programs will be available
with additional teachers who
are fully trained and certi-
fied in early childhood devel-
opment, CPR and first aid.
New security enhancements
for the child development
complex include a new pri-
vate entryway and restrooms.

Orange County teacher arrested

on charges of sexual abuse of minor


By Kathy Aber

The Orlando Police Depart-
ment arrested former Orange
County Public Schools teach-
er Wanda Smith, 57, Thurs-
day on charges of sexual bat-
tery on a child younger than
12. Smith currently resides at
1606 Crooms Ave., Orlando.
The arrest came five months
after an Ocoee couple came
forward and verified video-
tape evidence brought to po-
lice three years ago by Smith's
stepson.
The stepson, Nick Smith,
discovered the tape while
cleaning his father's house.
Wanda Smith was married to
Sammie Smith Sr. from 1975-
95, when the couple divorced.
The police report indicates
Sammie Smith Sr. was a min-
ister at St. Luke Missionary
Baptist Church at 1404 Bruton
Blvd. during the time of the al-
leged abuse. He has not been


WANDA SMITH

charged.
According to the arrest af-
fidavit, the 'tape shows Wanda
Smith having sexual inter-
course with a white male, who


was not identified until five
months ago when the victim
came forth.
Detective Jonathan O'Hern
of the Orlando Police Depart-
ment spoke to The West Or-
ange Times on Monday about
the details in this case and
why he expects there are other
possible victims.
In this particular case, he
said, "I have 27 years of teach-
ing, I have a person associated
with a church for I don't know
how long and, during an ap-
proximate 10-year period,
approximately 20-30 foster
children were placed in the
home through state agencies,"
Detective O'Hem said. "There
is a large pool of potential vic-
tims because of [the Smiths']
access to so many children.
"There could be hundreds,
thousands."

Ocoee to hire federal lobbyist


By Mary Anne Swickerath

Ocoee will soon have a lob-
byist in Washington, D.C., in
hopes of securing funds for
roads and municipal build-
ings. At last week's City Com-
mission meeting, the elected
officials approved spending
$60,000 this year to hire a fed-
eral lobbyist to represent the
city's interests. City Manager
Rob Frank advised the mayor
and commissioners that there
was no time to interview a
group of firms through an
RFP process since someone


needs to be selected by Feb. 1
in order to be effective and on
the job at the start of the new
administration. The city could
miss out on hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars if the officials
delayed the process by eight
weeks, he said.
He suggested the firm of Al-
cade and Faye on a one-year
basis. "I feel very comfortable
with this firm," he said, and
added that other companies
could be interviewed for next
year if the commission so de-
sired.
Commissioner Joel Keller


agreed that the city needed a
federal lobbyist because he
has seen other cities, such as
Winter Garden, getting things
done, usually because they
have representatives at the na-
tional level. He said he thinks
the city will get more funds
than the fee paid to the lobby-
ist: "I don't think we should
miss the boat this year."
Commissioner Rusty John-
son agreed that quick action
was necessary, saying, "We
procrastinate so much, we

YMCA
The former open-air court-
yard located between the
existing aerobics and child
development areas is being
enclosed and will serve as a
2,300-square-foot addition
to the aerobics/multi-purpose
room. Set to open in March, the
new aerobics studio will allow
50 more classes to a curricu-
lum that already consists of 90
classes per week. The studio
will boast an innovative aero-
bics floor designed to lessen
impact on joints, an improved
ventilation system, stretch bars
and mirrors throughout.
The YMCA gauges mem-
bership not by individuals
but by the number of family
member-units. With families
consisting of about 70 percent
of its membership, Sundstrom
said, the Roper Y currently
serves 2,100 family units and

The child develop-
ment center at the
Roper YMCA (at left,
above and below) will
double in size when
it's completed later this
month. A rendering (at
right) details the entire
10,000-square-foot
expansion project at
the Y, including a new
aerobics studio and
addition to the wellness
center, plus 60 new
parking spaces on the
property's west end.

estimates its total membership
at more than 8,000. Through
2009, YMCA officials hope to
see about 1,000 new families
join the Roper facility.
"It's really a single desti-
nation for the whole family,"
said Humphrey, pointing out
that members range in age
from 6 weeks to more than 90
years. "Everyone in the family,
no matter the age, has a place
here."
Scholarships are offered, he
added, on a case-by-case basis
to help families enjoy the ame-
nities at the Y.
The popularity of the Roper
Y has left many members strug-
gling to find a place to park
in recent years, and although
the latest expansion features
60 new parking spots on the
property's west end, the lot still
overflows on weekends.


(Continued from 1A)

As membership continues to
grow, the Roper Y can be ex-
pected to evolve further. Ten-
tative plans have already been
made to someday extend the
building's western wall to add
another indoor basketball court
alongside its existing court,
which Sundstrom said can get
very busy.
For longtime residents who
remember the original West
Orange Y, which consisted of
only the current child devel-
opment wing, the facility has
come a long way. Through
multiple renovations, the local
Y has grown from about 9,000
to 38,000 square feet since the
early 1990s.

victims or if anyone has direct
information in this case, Detec-
tive O'Hern asks them to call
the Orlando Police Department
at 407-246-2425 or Crimeline at
407-423-TIPS.
When police confronted the
Smiths shortly after the tape
was brought in three years ago,
they said the male on the tape
had worked for Sammie and
they could not remember his
name. Police said Wanda Smith
denied any sexual activity with
a minor or that the person in the
tape was a minor.
Believing that the acts on the
tape were consensual and had
occurred more than 15 years
ago, the police concluded the
statute of limitations had ex-
pired and took no further action
in 2005.
Last August, Bill Procknow
of the Department of Children
and Family Services contacted
O'Hern with new information
that led to Wanda Smith's arrest,
although it took several months
to verify the report.
The Ocoee woman married to
the victim had contacted Proc-
know, saying she saw Wanda
Smith, a teacher at her son's
school, Ocoee High, and iden-
tified her as the individual who
had sexual relations with her
husband when he was Smith's
elementary student in the mid-
1980s.
In the arrest report, O'Hern'
states he was able to establish
a timeline for the incidences in
the case during the school year
1983-84, when the victim was
11 years old. In the report, the
victim said the abuse started
when he was in sixth grade
at Rolling Hills Elementary
School and Wanda Smith was
his spelling teacher. The sexual
activity allegedly continued un-
til the victim was 16.
The Ocoee man, the husband
of the woman who called DCF,
was subsequently identified as
the male in the video given to
Orlando police in 2005.
On hearing of the arrest, the
victim's wife told the Times, "I.
never thought this day would
,come.
"I came forward to protect all
children frofn this woman. You


don't send your child to public
school and expect something
like this to happen."
The victim's wife also said,
"We just want to urge anyone
else who may have been a vic-
tim to come forward. We know
there are other victims."
The couple spoke to the Times
in person but asked that their
names be withheld.
The police report also states
that Smith's stepson had pro-
vided the videotape to OCPS
three years ago because he
knew Wanda Smith was still a
teacher. Nick Smith told police
he was an adult during the time
when Wanda and Sammie Sr.
were married and did not live
in their home.
OCPS attorney Frank Krup-
penbacher told the Times last
Thursday that the school district
had informed Wanda Smith of
the allegations against her in
August as soon as the victim


identified himself and OPD
confirmed he was the male in
the tape.
"There is clear evidence there
was unacceptable conduct here
for anyone in a position of cus-
tody of children," said Krup-
penbacher.
OCPS put Smith on relief-of-
duty status on Aug. 14 pending
an investigation. This was dur-
ing pre-planning for the 2008-
09 school year. When Smith
learned a victim had come
forward she quit and never en-
tered a classroom at Ocoee High
School, the attorney said.
OCPS said Smith began her
employment in April 1981. She
started as a teacher at Rolling
Hills Elementary and then went
to Washington Shores Elemen-
tary. She later taught at Carver
Middle and Evans High schools.
She is listed as a full reading
resource teacher and general
education teacher, according


to Kathy Marsh, OCPS senior
manager of media relations.
In October, before anything
came of the investigation,
Marsh said, Smith decided to
retire.
Until this year, Kruppenbach-
er said there had never been any
report of misconduct in Smith's
file. Even though the videotape
had shown up in 2005, the vic-
tim had never been identified
by anyone.
The attorney said OPD told
the school district, "You guys
did everything you could have
done."
Following the arrest, OCPS
notified Tallahassee so Smith's
teaching certificate has been re-
voked.
According to OPD Officer
Al Watts, Wanda Smifh posted
$25,000 bond last week and is
now on home confinement with
a GPS monitoring system until
her return to court.

Opinion


Dear Citizens,

As we begin a new year and look forward
to the possibilities it brings, I feel the need
to close 2008 with a few words of grati-
tude.
First, I would like to recognize those peo-
ple who supported my campaign, whether
by way of a donation, as a volunteer or both.
Your valuable time and generosity made the
journey to this office possible, and I sincere-
ly thank you.
I would also like to express my apprecia-
tion to our former District 1 Commissioner,
Teresa Jacobs, and her exceptional staff,
Graciela Noriega Jacoby and Lynette Reyn-
olds, who with the benefit of the citizens in
mind, worked extensively with me and my
staff to promote a seamless transition.
Finally, to the citizens of District 1, thank
you for your endless .encouragement and for
your votes during the election process. I am
truly grateful for the opportunity to serve as
your county commissioner. I acknowledge
the immense responsibility associated with
this position and intend to carry out those
duties with utmost dedication.
I strongly believe, however, that the
charge to better our community falls not
only upon its elected officials but also
greatly depends upon you, its citizens. Your
involvement helps make Orange County op-
erate, and I challenge you to participate in


the process. There are many ways by which
you can meet this challenge, and one of my
goals for 2009 is to make opportunities to
do so more visible and accessible. My staff
is working diligently to update the District
1 Web site. It will soon include links to open
advisory board seats, volunteer opportuni-
ties and numerous other resources.
Currently, there is a vast need to fill open-
ings on many county advisory boards. These
boards shape the future of our community.
More specifically, they are a way for you to
make a positive impact. Open seats range
from those of environmental interests to
community development, as well as to parks
and recreation. Having served on county
advisory boards myself, I personally under-
stand their importance. Therefore, I encour-
age you to visit the Orange County Web site
at www.ocfl.net to find a board that interests
you. Click on Advisory Boards under "Your
Local Government" to view all available
positions as well as the application process.
We greatly need your participation.
In closing, may I wish, all of you a Happy
New Year and say how/much I am looking
forward to working with you in the months
and years ahead as we create together a
stronger and more cohesive community.

Scott Boyd
Orange County Commissioner, District 1

Bozkurt achieves green

Realtor designation


Pam Bozkurt, owner and bro-
ker of Gosselin Realty in Ocoee,
has been awarded the National
Association of Realtors' (NAR)
green designation. She was in
the first class of Realtors to earn
the certification.
Bozkurt completed 18 hours
of course work designed specifi-
cally for Realtors. The courses
were created in collaboration
with a multi-disciplinary team
of industry experts from across
the country and designed to en-
sure designees gain comprehen-
sive knowledge of green homes
and buildings and sustainability
in relation to real estate.
"As energy costs rise along
with concern for the environ-
ment, homeowners are look-
ing for innovative ways to save
money and live responsibly,"
said Dick Gaylord, former NAR
president.
Bozkurt was trained spe-
cifically in understanding what
makes a property green, help-
ing clients evaluate the cost and
benefits of green building fea-
tures and practices, distinguish-
ing between industry rating and
classification systems, listing


and marketing green homes and
buildings, discussing financial
grants and incentives available
to homeowners and helping con-
sumers see a property's green
potential.

Rosen hotels among 1 st to
earn '2-Palm' green status


Rosen Hotels and Resorts'
three convention properties -
Rosen Plaza, Rosen Centre and
Rosen Shingle Creek are the
first hotels in Central Florida to
achieve Two-Palm status from
the Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection's Green
Lodging Program. The Rosen
hotels are among only 11 total
Two-PAim hotels in Florida.
The three properties were
among the first 50 properties to
receive the One-Palm designa-
tion in 2007. The Two Palms
certifies that the hotels have in-
creased energy conservation and
pollution prevention measures
since earning One-Palm certi-
fication. Facilities can achieve
up to three levels of green within
the Florida Green Lodging Pro-
;gram, based on increased reduc-
tiohs in waste, water and energy
consumption.
"To us, Green Lodging is
more than just another award
or designation after our name,"
said Harris Rosen, president and
COO of Rosen Hotels and Re-
sorts. "It's a real, everyday effort
to continually reduce our foot-
print on the environment. We,
started this process before DEP's
program began, and we plan to
continue our efforts, meeting
and exceeding the state's stan-
dards not for accolades or for
sales, but simply because it is
the right thing to do."
In addition to meeting the
Green Lodging Program's cri-
teria, Rosen hotels have also
implemented an eco-friendly
meetings Web site, www.rosen-
greenmeetings.com. The site is
designed to assist meeting plan-
ners interested in reducing the
environmental burdens typically
associated with large meetings
and conventions.

signed with the environment in
mind.

Magazine features


Thomas' Biosphere Nursery


Gardening and landscaping enthusiasts
across the country have been reading about
Biosphere Nursery in Winter Garden since
Ornamental Outlook, a national monthly
magazine, featured owner and founder Jim
Thomas in its December issue.
Thomas adorns the magazine's front page,
pictured among some of the colorful and
lush foliage at his nursery on Tilden Road.
The feature article detailed how Biosphere
Nursery has grown since opening in 1991
and explained how Thomas married his loves
of biology and landscaping to coin the term
"bioscape," which he defines as landscap-
ing for habitat while decreasing pesticides,
water use and maintenance. Thomas told
The West Orange Tunimes last week he enjoyed
being a cover boy.
"It's good to get that publicity," Thomas
said. "We've had a lot of response from other
nurseries."
While continually expanding and enhanc-
ing his nursery to include aviaries, habitats
for fish and tortoises, rain-collection barrels
and an outdoor workshop pavilion, Thomas
has been busy working on wetland and lake-
front restoration for homeowners, develop-
ers and local governments, which he said
makes up the majority of Biosphere's busi-
ness. That often consists of using aquatic-
approved herbicides to kill and then remove
non-native shoreline plants such as cattails
and torpedo grass. The Butler Chain of
Lakes, Thomas said, is full of torpedo grass
and is responsible for creating heavy muck
and sediment.
Long before the magazine cover, Bio-
sphere had already captured the attention
of many homeowners interested in trans-
forming their lawns into drought-resistant
wildlife habitats. Although Biosphere was
conceived as a bioscaping service, public
demand led Thomas to begin selling native
plants wholesale and retail a year-and-a-half
ago.
"Customers come as far as Jacksonville
and Tampa," he said.
A workshop on converting standard lawns
to bioscapes drew nearly 65 people to Bio-
sphere on a recent Saturday. Thomas said
he's encouraged by the public interest and
will host more workshops in the coming
months. Through Biosphere, in addition to
his work as a founding member of Friends
of Lake Apopka and Oakland Nature Pre-
serve, Thomas hopes to educate the public
about the need for water conservation and
environmental preservation.

requires regular watering, and

the Biosphere owner on the cover of its December issue.


huge obstacle for water conservation ef-
forts.
"Some people using municipal water sup-
plies are being forced out of their homes due
to the cost of watering St. Augustine grass,"
Thomas said.
Homeowners associations, he said, need
to get realistic about lawn requirements, and
people will have to change their lifestyles.
Thomas pointed to a 13-foot drop in the
aquifer over the past 13 years and disputes
between state municipalities over drawing
water from major lakes and rivers as omi-
nous signs of things to come.


"We're headed for real problems," Thom-
as warned. "I see the potential for real water
restrictions, such as watering only one day
a week or less."
Biosphere will welcome an expert on or-
ganic gardening for a free public seminar
scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 24. An aquas-
caping workshop is set for March 23, and
butterfly gardening, which Thomas said is the
most popular, will be featured on March 28.
A rain barrel class will be planned soon.
Biosphere Nursery is located at 14908 Til-
den Road. For more details, call 407-656-

Winter Garden Oakland


Winter Garden
expands curbside
recycling program
The city of Winter Garden
Solid Waste Division has ex-
panded its curbside recycling
program, Reduce & Reuse.
Residents can now place the
following in the recycling bins:
paperboard, cereal boxes, paper
towel and toilet paper rolls, shoe
boxes and empty aerosol cans.
The city also accepts phone
books (from Nov. 1 through
Feb. 15), newspapers, junk mail,
magazines, catalogs, flattened
corrugated boxes (cut to two
feet by two feet), brown paper
bags, plastic containers (caps re-
moved) with Nos. 1-7 on them,
glass bottles and jars, drink
boxes, milk and juice cartons
and aluminum and tin cans.
For more information, call
407-656-2256, Ext. 2010.


Dodgin' the ball
Families from Westfield and Windermere Crossings subdivisions in Winter Garden par-
ticipated in a New Year's Eve dodgeball tournament at TURFS. The event was planned
by Kelli Irwin and TURFS (Denny Baseball).


Tiny tots can prepare
The Roper YMCA now offers the Tiny
Tots Learning program led by Carol Spen-
cer of Orlando. Spencer has been supervis-
ing this unique way of learning for more than
30 years. The program, once called "A Circle
of Friends," focuses on children 2 and older.
The class is an experience for the children to
prepare themselves for school. What makes the
class unique, she said, is that the children are
playing as they learn.
"I like to play in Ms. Spencer's
class. I like to say my numbers," said
4-year-old Amelia of Winter Garden.
A main objective is to build good self-esteem
for the children. Eventually, when they start
school they will be confident in an educational
environment.
"When I can see a timid and shy child
sing in front of their peers with confi-
dence, it is my miracle. It is so rewarding
to watch the children grow," said Spencer.
The class begins with the students talking about
the weather each day. Then they move on to learn-
ing letters and numbers. They also learn shapes
and colors. Every day, the class sings songs and
tells stories. Every part is a progressive process,
and the environment is not like a classroom. The


for school at YMCA
class lets the children face their fears, as well as
make things familiar. These are things that they
will use for the rest of their lives.
"The class is structural in one hand and then
comfortable in another. It is the perfect class for
young children," said Spencer.
This class will assist children in succeeding
once they progress to the school system.
Tiny Tots provides the class in a private set-
ting. The children gather in the YMCA's Teen
Center, so they can be themselves without having
the judgment of others. Each child learns to be
social with classmates, but each works at his or
her own pace.
The teaching process is based on repetition
each day. They repeat the material and combine
it with the imagination. Whether the child under-
stands the material, or if he or she is discouraged,
there is always positive reinforcement. Every
child has a choice in everything that he or she
does. They learn to make decisions and weigh
options.

The Roper YMCA of Central Florida offers
this class Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
at 9:30 a.m. For more information, contact the,
Roper YMCA at 407-656-6430.


Artwork will raise money for autism
The autism classes of Jamie Tice, Melissa Breaud and Ralph Festa partnered with the
Autism Gym in Ocoee, and the children painted pictures for the gym's upcoming Golf-
ing Fore Autism's 5th annual charity tournament. The pictures will be auctioned to raise
money for the program. In the class picture are, I-r: front, Sienna Condello, A.J. Gabryluk,
Connor Robinson, Carlos Rodriguez, Pablo Agosto, Anthony Quintero, Cristina Boswell
and Dominic Roumeliotis; back, Jennifer Gabryluk, Julie Branom, Tice, JoAnne Houwers
and Ami Condello.


Brownies enjoy pizza
Brownie Troop 1774 had a great time at its Christmas Party

ren Gutierrez, Shelby Mendive, Ashley Montalbano; mid-

Beckett's


owners of Beckett's Empo-
rium.
They are back in the area
after living in various parts
of the country and operating a
pack-and-ship company, a bis-
tro, a coffee shop and another
gift shop.
The McClungs say their
Winter Garden store offers
merchandise in three cat-
egories: gifts, greeting cards
and gourmet foods. Someone
shopping for a friend or loved
one or themselves can
choose from a selection of
candles, silver trays, jewelry,
artwork, figurines (including
Willow Tree and Jim Shore)
and items featuring The Wizard
of Oz, Betty Boop, Elvis Pres-
ley and the Florida Gators.
It's the shop's gourmet food
section that surprised them,
though. Lynn said their big-
gest seller is the popular as-
sortment of Chalet Suzanne
soups from Lake Wales. Also
on the shelves are Wind & Wil-
low mixes, marmalades and
Swedish lingonberries.
"It's, for us, a lifetime good
deal," Lynn McClung said.
"It's amazing to have this op-
portunity."
The shop is named in mem-
ory of Brenda's mother, Mary
Beckett, who died a little more
than a year ago.
Deciding to open the store
just after Thanksgiving proved
to be a profitable idea. Light
Up Winter Garden was held on
downtown Plant Street on Dec.
5, and the McClungs said they
made more money that night
than they expected to bring in
the entire first week.
The McClungs and Becketts
have a long history in down-
town Winter Garden, and Lynn
and Brenda's ties to the com-
munity brought them back af-
ter 40 years. Both are Lakev-
iew High School graduates, he


in 1965 and she in 1968.
Brenda's father, Nobel Beck-
ett Jr., was a window clerk at
the downtown Winter Garden
Post Office, and her grandfa-
ther, Nobel Beckett Sr., owned
a grove service, operating the
office in his home just north of
downtown.
Her mother worked for
most of her life at the old
Davis Pharmacy, which was
located on the same block for
decades.
Lynn McClung said he knew
his uncle, Minor McClung,
also ran a five-and-dime some-
where downtown in the 1940s
and '50s, but he never knew
the exact- location. He finally
found his answer while dining
recently at the Winter Gar-
den Pizza Company when he
looked at an old photograph in
the restaurant and saw a group
of Boy Scouts marching down
Plant Street with his uncle's
storefront in the background.
Today, Southern Comfort next
to the pizza place is in that lo-
cation.
Between Lynn's uncle and
his parents, there was a fam-
ily business downtown for 67
years. J.P. and Mary ran the
second McClung's store from
1964-82. After Lynn's mother
died, his father kept it open for
another 10 years.
The Beckett's Emporium
storefront was once Western
Auto. And who should live
next door to Lynn and Brenda
in their Winter Garden neigh-
borhood? Flip Stems, who once
owned the Western Auto.
Currently, Beckett's is open
from 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Monday through Saturday and
noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
But Lynn quickly said he's
learned that customers always
dictate the hours of a profitable
store, so if he needs to change
the opening or closing times to

He said his dad opened his

Lady Warrior soccer


defeats rival Ocoee


The West Orange High varsi-
ty girls soccer team came back
from the holiday break with a
renewed determination, and it
showed against rival Ocoee.
Trailing 1-0 early in the game,
the Lady Warriors rallied with a
pair of second-half goals to beat
Ocoee 2-1. Lauren Shea and
Sarah Kinsey scored for West
Orange, while the defense con-
tained Ocoee's Micah Brown.
West Orange traveled to
Eustis the next night, and the
highly ranked Panthers offense
put on a scoring exhibition in


a 5-0 win. The Lady Warriors
bounced back on Senior Night
with a 1-0 win over Freedom,
in which sophomore midfielder
Patricia Chastang scored the
lone goal for West Orange.
The Lady Warriors closed out
the regular season with a 4-0
win on the road against Boone.
Senior forward Kinsey scored
twice, and Chastang and Kiera
Johnson each added a goal.

Camp Ithiel hosts Cornell crew
For the last 4 years, rowing teams from Cornell University have been visiting Gotha and
Windermere to spend 10 days of its winter break on intense training. The 4 teams -
men's and women's heavyweight and lightweight consist of 120 rowers and coaches
who stay at Camp Ithiel in Gotha. Being from Ithaca, New York, the cold freezes many
lakes and restricts outdoor training in the winter. While visiting West Orange, the rowers
enjoy 2-a-day workouts from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Camp Ithiel provides meals and housing,
making sure the hungry athletes have food available around the clock. The rowers pri-
marily practice on Lake Down and Lake Butler.

Dining -


Ocean Prime is heating up Sand Lake Road dining scene


By Mary Anne Swickerath

The most upscale of the new
restaurants opening in the Ri-
alto complex at the corner of
Sand Lake and Turkey Lake
roads has to be Ocean Prime, a
sleek, modern supper club with


excellent seafood and steaks
and a lively bar scene with even
livelier music. To walk into the
tall space is like walking into a
party that has already gotten off
to a high-energy start.
This is not a quiet, cozy spot
for a deep conversation during


Pecan-Crusted Mountain Trout with Collossal Shrimp Cock-
tail are 2 choices on Ocean Prime's menu. The restaurant
opened before Thanksgiving in the Rialto complex.


Special combos
Romano's Macaroni Grill on
Daniels Road in Winter Garden
is offering a three-course $11.99
special for lunch and dinner. The
Chef's Trio includes a choice
of a salad (House or Caesar), a
choice of entr6e (Chicken Can-
nelloni, Pasta Milano, Layers
of Lasagna, Fettucine Alfredo,
Pollo Magro or Spaghetti and
Meatballs) and a personal-sized
dessert (Smothered Chocolate


Small bites
Cake, Lemon Passion Cake or
Italian Sorbetto).

Jersey Shores sets
grand opening
The newest Winter Garden
restaurant, Jersey Shores Caf6
and Grill, will host a grand-
opening celebration this Satur-
day, Jan. 17, with food samples
and special prices. The eatery,
which serves breakfast all day,


dinner, but it is fun, friendly
and welcoming.
The menu offers modern
versions of long-ago sup-
per club favorites made with
high-quality ingredients. Be-
sides house-made soups and
tasty salads, appetizers feature
Sonoma Goat Cheese Ravioli
with Golden Oak Mushrooms,
Truffled Deviled Eggs and Ahi
Tuna served with fried wontons
and avocado.
An entr6e specialty is the
Chilean Sea Bass with Glazed
Carrots and Champagne Truffle
Sauce. Also popular are Ginger
Salmon with Stir-Fried Snap
Peas and Soy Butter Sauce
and Blackened Swordfish with
Champagne Vin Blanc, Wilted
Spinach and Jalapeno Corn
Tartar.
But you can go straight to
the prime fish section and or-
der snapper, mahi mahi, scal-
lops, swordfish, et al, broiled
at 1,200 degrees. Or take your
pick of all manner of steaks and
chops, including a 22-ounce
porterhouse for $48. You can
then select from a range of
sauces and toppings (bear-
naise, green peppercorn and
cognac, black truffle butter
or Maytag bleu cheese) for an
additional $3, or you can opt
for the jumbo lump crabmeat
and b6arnaise sauce for an ad-
ditional $7. Sides of potatoes
(I really enjoyed the whipped
potatoes with blue cheese) and
vegetables are $8-$11 extra.
With entrees averaging well
over $30, this is definitely an
upscale restaurant with upscale
prices, but the quality of the
food is just as upscale.
The wine list is impressive
and well-thought-out, with out-


features New York bagles,
breakfast sandwiches, cheese
steaks, subs, salads, soups, Ital-
ian ice and salt-water taffy.
Hours are 7 a.m.,to 4 p.m.
Monday, Tuesday and Thurs-
day; 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednes-
day and Friday; and 8 a.m. to 4
p.m. Saturday. Jersey Shores is
located at 855 Plant St., Suite
600 (east of Dillard Street).

407-654-5000.


standing choices by the glass,
and the desserts are serious
(Baked Alaska, White Choco-
late Key Lime Tart, Cr6me
Brulee, Valrhona Chocolate
Torte with Passion Fruit Sauce
and Blueberry Lemon Cheese-
cake).
The service is a highlight,
both knowledgeable and at-
tentive.
Ocean Prime is a place for
a special-occasion four-course
dinner or for a bowl of soup
and a salad in the comfortable
dining room or perhaps an ap-
petizer and glass of wine or a
drink in the party-scene bar.
It's a place that is heating up
Sand Lake Road's Restaurant
Row even on a chilly winter
night.
(Ocean Prime, at 7339 W.

4-10 p.m., Friday and Satur-

Season of giving
It was a season of giving
at Lakeview Middle this past
month. The holiday season
kicked-off with the annual
food drive organized by Nef-
tali Albaladejo, the school re-
source officer. The students
collected nonperishable food
items in each class, and a spir-
ited competition ensued with


Rhonda Hitchcock's class on
top with more than 840 cans of
food. The collected items were
distributed to LMS families in
need.
Students next joined forces
with the Winter Garden Police
Department to raise money
for its annual toy drive. Mem-
bers of WGPD challenged the
teachers to a volleyball game,
with tickets costing $2 to at-


tend. The teachers were de-
feated, but the true winners
were Winter Garden families.
More than $'1,600 was raised.
Finally, students recognized
that animals are also in need
of help. The National Junior
Honor Society, sponsored by
Jennifer Rawlings, organized a
pet-supply drive for the SPCA.
The students collected food,
litter, toys and other items.

for principles mentoring program


By Mary Anne Swickerath
Last year 16 community
volunteers worked as mentors
with 22 West Orange High
School freshmen in a special
program called "Chosen l's."
The success of those sessions
has led to a follow-up program
at WOHS beginning Feb. 4 en-
titled "Teach One To Lead One-
Living Principals" that will in-
volve the entire freshman class
(more than 500 students), and
30 mentors have already signed
up to participate.
But 18 more mentors from
the community are needed to
work with students in small
groups of five or six per four
mentors.
What is "Teach One To Lead
One" about? According to the
program Web site, www.cel-
ebratelife.org, it is a "national
program focused on building
character and leadership in
young people. Teach One To
Lead One specifically targets
students aged 12-19 and intro-
duces to them to the concept of
universal principles that govern
human life."


It is designed to educate and
positively influence young
people by reinforcing ethical
principles in a positive way.
Topics covered are respect,
integrity, teamwork, self-
control, courage, compassion,
humility, responsibility, excel-
lence, enthusiasm and honor.
The freshmen will participate
in this new 15-week program
one day a week during their
HOPE class period, a newly re-
quired combination class of life
management skills and physical
education.
The volunteer mentors will
have the satisfaction of being
involved as caring adults and
encouraging students to learn
and apply ethical principles to
their lives and to positively in-
fluence their peers.
These principles are taught
through games, skits and art
and writing projects.
Two more training sessions
for prospective mentors will
be held Wednesday, Jan. 21, at
1 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. at West
Orange High. Volunteers are
asked to check in at the front of-
fice of the school. The mentor-


ing teams will be well-trained
to lead the program's sessions
before the Feb. 4 start and will
be provided teaching materi-
.als.
This year's program will cul-
minate with a graduation party
on May 27.
For more information, con-
tact Mack McLaughlin at
mmclaughlin@fxbuilt.com. He
is the community volunteer co-
ordinator, and he said the pro-
gram needs 18 more mentors
in order to include the entire
freshman class this year.
He explained that by work-
ing with all the freshmen each
year, within four years the up-
perclassmen will be able to
mentor the younger students
to reinforce the ethical prin-
ciples that form the basis of
the "Teach One To Lead One"
Life Principles Mentoring Cur-
riculum.
In addition, the program
could grow so that it is taught
throughout the school term in-
stead of just the spring. That
would allow students who need
help or who are at-risk to be
identified and nurtured.

Retired Educators to meet Feb. 5


- Dillard Street -


Ed Emrick of Casualine Furniture in Winter Garden made
generous donations to Tildenville Elementary's holiday
gifts for families in need.


Patsy Minor is Dillard Street
Elementary's Support Per-
son of the Year for 2008-09.
She is the school registrar
but does so much more.
She is always there to lend
a helping hand and a smile.
She was nominated by her
peers for her strong work
ethic and dedication to a
job well done.


Making spirits bright
Tildenville Elementary
leaped into the holiday spirit
of giving this year with several
projects both local and afar.
The TES staff teamed up with
other local schools and busi-
nesses to support the families
in need and the troops far from
home.
The staff contributed to sev-
eral projects, including making
donations in lieu of a holiday gift
exchange to support an Angel
Tree and a second-grade proj-
ect to ship items overseas to
troops in Iraq. The staff chose
angels from the tree to sup-
port more than 30 anonymous
needy families, and more than
150 items from students' wish
lists were provided for several
families.
West Orange High also part-


nered with Tildenville again
this year to provide gifts to
more families as part of the
Adopt-a-Family program. The
families picked up. boxes of
clothes, presents and even a
few bicycles on the last day of
school before winter break.
Finally, a local Winter Gar-
den business, Casualine Fur-
niture, signed on as a Partner
in Education in December and
donated two twin beds, bed-
ding and some holiday gifts to
one of the new families in need.
After being identified as needy
during the Orange County
Public Schools Thanksgiving
Food Drive, the parents and
two children were "adopted"
by this local business and the
school staff.
A big thank-you goes to Ca-
sualine Furniture for its gener-
ous donation.


The Orange County Retired
Educators Association will
meet Thursday, Feb. 5, at 11:30

A Comment & Study of the Scriptures Remembering George Gano


"Praise be to the Lord, for He has heard
my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength
and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I
am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will
give thanks to Him in song." Psalm 28: 6-7
My dad, my husband and I were packing
up our apartment last week in preparation for
a massive move when we ran into a slight
problem. Actually, it was a problem that we
had known about all along but we all were
trying to not think about. We own a huge
dresser which is solid wood, very heavy and
very awkward to move. I knew that there was
no way I was going to be of any help getting
that dresser down the very steep, narrow stairs
of our old apartment building. I also knew
that despite their protests, my husband and
father should not attempt to move it either. I
sat on the back of the truck and asked God
for help. Within a few moments, as we con-
tinued to ponder our predicament, three men

wearing moving company t-shirts walked by.
They clearly had had a little too much to
drink, and began to tell us that if we had
wanted an easier time in moving our apart-
ment we should have hired "experts". Slight-
ly blown away by the timing of their arrival,
my husband promptly asked them how much
it would cost for them to move one piece of
furniture. Twenty minutes and forty dollars
later that beast of a piece was safely in the
back of the truck.
God showed me more in those twenty min-
utes than I had learned in days. He used three
drunken movers to remind me that He loves
me more then I can ever imagine, and He
relishes showing me that love by showing up
in the "little" things in my life. I can always
trust the ultimate Expert, for He will never
fail me.
