transportation

committee

By Mary Anne Swickerath

In an effort to find ways to save money, the
Orange County School Board has approved set-
ting up a Transportation Task Force made up
SU aof citizens from each board member's district.
Each board member will appoint two committee
members and one alternate.
Vicky Bell, who proposed the committee to
her fellow School Board members, told The West
Orange Times: "The purpose of this task force is
Pholos by Michael Laval to find the most efficient means of transporting

Emus, ostriches, antelopes

make a home in Oakland


By Amy Quesinberry
While walking the trails in
the Oakland Nature Preserve,
guests might be surprised to
catch a glimpse of ostriches,
emus, Watusi cattle or ante-
lopes. These and more unique
animals roam freely on land
near the preserve, and their,
owner plans to add more to
his hobby farm.
Oakland resident Jeff Voss
has approximately 60 acres
for wild animals adjacent to
the preserve, and he and ONP
President Jim Thomas have
been discussing ways to in-
corporate these animals in
some way with the preserve.
Last fall, Voss purchased
land in the town limits after


discovering that unincorpo-
rated Orange County, where
he lives, doesn't allow hobby
farms and only permits one
animal per acre except in cer-
tain circumstances.
He and Thomas met recent-
ly to talk about possibilities,
and Voss has agreed to add
a white-tailed deer habitat
nearby.
Voss has agreed to fence
off two acres for the deer near
the north end of the preserve's
parking lot.
"This will be great for
the preserve," Thomas told
The West Orange Times last
week. "We're really excited.
We'll never have deer in the
preserve; it's too small and"
too urban."


"The Oakland Nature Pre-
serve is a wonderful asset
for our community, and I
am pleased to wdrk with Jim
Thomas and his team on this
project," Voss said. "It is my
hope that the addition of na-
tive animal species such as
the white-tailed deer will en-
courage more people to visit
the preserve."
ONP officials hope to get
the white-tailed deer from
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
rehabilitation center. These
are animals that cannot be
released in the wild: Voss has
agreed to buy them if nec-
essary, and he would take

Environmental Education

Center for the public


Citizens can take
a look at the new
building at an open
house Jan. 31.

By Amy Quesinberry

To get a feel of what it was
like to live in a pioneer's log
cabin, one only needs to travel
as far as the Oakland Nature
Preserve and tour the new En-
vironmental Education Center,
which opens to the public Jan.
31. The tin-roofed, log build-
ing is a replica of a pioneer
homestead that will serve as
the classroom for environmen-
tal education, in addition to the
natural and cultural history of
the area and the way early Flo-
ridians used the land and their
lifestyle.


The cabin is built out of pre-
cut white pine logs resembling
pieces in a child's Lincoln Logs
set. They came from Vermont,
where they were "farmed" in
sustainable forests.
Jim Thomas, president of
ONP, went before the Jan. 13
Oakland Town Commission
meeting to request that the
town allow ONP to store the
extra logs on preserve property.
Mayor Kathy Stark suggested
giving Thomas a year to store
the expensive logs, find a more
suitable location or use them
for a project at the preserve.
Thomas told the commission
he expects to use them to build
a retention wall and possibly a
Dumpster cover.
He also expressed his grati-
tude for the $650,000 that was
raised mostly by volunteers
and called it "pretty incred-


ible."
An open house for the com-
munity is planned for Satur-
day, Jan. 31, from 10 a.m. to 3
p.m. Guided tours of the new
center will be given every 30
minutes. Also, guided tours of
the boardwalk will take place
at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and of the
Upland Trail at 10 a.m., noon
and 1 and 2 p.m. Guests can
walk the Upland Trail without
a guide as well.
Wildlife artwork will be on
display, Thomas said, as will
pottery shards and arrowheads
found around Lake Apopka,
and an Ocala man will demon-
strate knapping (chipping out
flint to make arrowheads).
Admission and parking are
free.

Matching grant challenge nets $90,000

for Health Central's new cath lab


The Martin Andersen-Gracia
Andersen Foundation recently
extended a matching grant chal-
lenge to Health Central Founda-
tion. A total of $45,000 will be
matched by the Andersen Foun-
dation for individual pledges
and gifts up to $1,000 made by
Foundation board members,
Health Central trustees and se-
nior leadership of the hospital.
Individuals making pledges
and gifts were required to des-
ignate their gift to the new car-
diac catheterization lab, which
Health Central plans to open
this year. Nearly 100 percent
of the Health Central trustees,
Foundation Board of Directors
and Health Central leadership
stepped up to personally commit
to this lifesaving project, con-
tributing $45,000, which will be
matched into an $90,000 fund'
for the new cardiac cath lab.
The cardiac cath lab will add


a valuable service to the people
of the West Orange community
by its ability to provide an addi-
tional interventional procedure
necessary in the case of a heart
attack, as well as to be able to
treat patients in the critical mo-
ments required to save the heart
muscle. Currently, Health Cen-
tral is able to stabilize a heart
patient and diagnose the need
for a stent, and this will allow
Health Central to provide the
additional life-saving interven-
tional procedure. West Orange
residents will not need to travel
to another healthcare facility for
this procedure.
The American Heart Associa-
tion established a benchmark of
90 minutes for a patient to have
the best chance of survival and
recovery after suffering a heart
attack.
"The new cath lab will be ex-
tremely beneficial to the people


who visit, live and work in West
Orange County," said Richard
Irwin, president and CEO of
Health Central.
"Statistics prove that time is
critical for heart patients to not
only be diagnosed but to treat
them. We are looking forward
to providing our community
with this new technology that
will save time and save lives,"
he added.
Health Central Foundation
is spearheading a $2.5 million
campaign to open the doors of
the new cath lab. The purpose of
Health Central Foundation is to
endow Health Central through
philanthropy with the assets
necessary to provide world-class
healthcare in the community it
serves.
For more information on
Health Central Foundation, con-
tact Mimi Michels, manager, at

WOPA partners with Floridians for Smarter Growth


The West Orange Political Alliance (WOPA)
supports Floridians for Smarter Growth in oppos-
ing the anti-growth initiative known as Home-
town Democracy. The board of WOPA recently
voted to support the effects of Floridians for
Smarter Growth, a group that was founded in
order to oppose the efforts of the Hometown De-
mocracy organization. It's WOPA's position that
this organization would have Floridians voting for
everything, including issues of land use, thereby
stifling the process and halting development that
is much needed in these economic times.
WOPA also supports the importance of smart
growth for this state and region and is therefore


lending its name and support to the growing list
of Floridians who oppose the Hometown Democ-
racy initiative.
"[Hometown Democracy's] petition-gathering
initiative and its [proposed state] amendment will
lead to higher taxes, anemic municipal servic-
es and urban sprawl, and it needs to fail," said
WOPA Chairman David Sylvester.
"We must be smart in planning for our future
and not let the planning process be stifled by this
movement. So we hope that Floridians will not
sign the Hometown Democracy petitions nor vote
yes in regard to the amendment, if it should make
it to the 2010 ballot."


Chamber announces annual-Tallahassee trip dates


The West Orange Chamber
of Commerce will once again
participate in the Central
Florida Chamber Coalition's
"Capital Connection" set for
March 17-18. 1
More than 100 community
leaders from Central Florida
will converge on the State
Capitol as part of the coali-
tion's lobbying effort in Tal-
lahassee. The 2009 Chamber
Coalition includes Apopka,
East Orlando, Greater Oviedo,
Orlando Regional, Seminole
County/Lake Mary, Hispanic
and Winter Park Chamber of


Commerce, all representing
more than 5,000 Central Flor-
ida businesses, thus resulting
in a true regional effort. This
is the only organized Chamber
trip to Tallahassee this year.
The trip will include two
private luncheons featuring top
state representatives, a visit to
the State Capitol with a tour
of the House floor, an evening
reception at the exclusive
Governor's Club with invited
Central Florida delegates and
networking opportunities with
other members of the Central
Florida business community.


"Every year this trip is a
huge success," said Stina
D'Uva, president of the West
Orange Chamber.
"Our members have the op-
portunity to meet elected of-
ficials and discuss issues that
are important to the growth
and development of our com-
munity."

pation with this year's trip or

Old Times


Editor,


Family grateful for


I would like to thank everyone for the support
that has been shown to my mother, Terri Ste-
phens, and my family while she has been fight-
ing cancer. Whether you were someone who
gave a donation, said a prayer, "brought food,
sent a sweet card, came to the recent benefit or
made a phone call, they were all appreciated.
I cannot thank you enough, and it brings tears
to my eyes to see how supportive this commu-
nity really is. This has definitely been a tough
time for all of us, but with the help of others,


community support
anything can be accomplished.
A special thanks goes to the Winter Garden
Elks Lodge for hosting the benefit Jan. 10. It
went very well, and we had an enormous turn-
out. The Elks even set up an account at Orange
Bank in Winter Garden in the Terri Stephens
Family name. The account number is 44002193
for anyone who wants to contribute.
Once again, thank you all for your love and,
support.

Terry Stephens fund-raiser brings in $10,000


Editor,


On behalf of the officers and members of
Winter Garden Elks Lodge, I would like to
thank The West Orange Times for their con-
tinuing support of our efforts with the Terri
Stephens Family Fund. Without your gener-"
osity, our benefit on Saturday would have not
been as successful. We received over $10,000
in contributions. from the motorcycle run, the

State Rep. Nelson d
Editor,
It has certainly not been an easy two weeks
in Tallahassee as the Florida Legislature has
met and prepared to approve budget reduc-
tions equal to $2.3 billion in order to fix the
unconstitutional budget deficit the state cur-
rently faces. As you may know, last May, the
legislature passed a budget based on projected
revenues. As the year progressed, projected
revenues fell as the economy faltered but the
budget stayed the same amount, which leads to
a deficit. The proposed adjusted budget reflects
difficult decisions and necessary compromises
in order to make our state budget balanced for
the remainder of the fiscal year.
Out of the $2.3 billion plan to plug the bud-
get hole, approximately $1.6 billion will come
$700 million out of the Tobacco Trust Fund
and $400 million from the Budget Stabilization
Fund with $190 million from other trust funds,
leaving an estimated $1 billion in budget cuts.
Gov. Crist has warned these programs and state
agencies to prepare for budget changes and to
withhold about 4 percent of their respective
budgets. While this was mostly adhered to, the
legislature is prepared to cut an additional $600
million from the budgets, which will equal the


i*


vidual donations and other endeavors that day.
Also, a hearty thank-you to all the members,
ladies, relatives and all the citizens of the West
Orange community who pitched in and helped
us with this event.
This charity account will remain open at Or-
ange Bank in Winter Garden for those wishing
to contribute at a later date.
Stan Smith
Lodge Secretary 2165

scusses budget cuts
other $1.2 billion dollars necessary to create a
balanced budget. It is important to remember
that the state will be obligated to repay approxi-
mately $1 billion in these trust fund transfers
from last year and this year starting in the 2011 -
2012 fiscal year in the form of five equal pay-
ments of $214 million from General Revenue
to the Budget Stabilization Fund.
I do see a silver lining in these historic tax
cuts during an unprecedented economic crisis
in our state: we have been able to accomplish
a balanced budget without increasing taxes for
Floridians. Though programs and agencies will
see cuts, it would be inappropriate and down-
right wrong to suddenly increase the taxes of
those who have lost their jobs or the families
struggling with foreclosures. I assure you that I,
along with my fellow colleagues, took very long
hard looks at every aspect of the state's budget,
listened to public input and reflected on what is
best for the state not just for tomorrow, but
for the months and years to come.
For more information about my newsletter, or
if there is anything that I may do for you regard-
ing state issues or programs, please contact me
at my district office at 407-880-4414.

From The Town Crier: There they were -
the Rotary Anns in all their best dinner frocks
and pretty coiffures the guests of honor
they were when the Rotarians were hosts at the
annual Ladies Night at the Edgewater Hotel.
As usual., it was a gay affair. Mary Vick and
Nellie Bowden were among those selecting
black, the predominating color of the ladies'
gowns. A striking contrast was Gladys Hall,
wife of the president, Harold Hall, in white.
An adequate landing field will be constructed

"As I watched the students
make the posters, I noticed
there were long silent pauses
as it sank in that these were

Each student was given a

students also studied the dif-

debating an appropriate length
for a homeowner's dock on

the dock needs to extend fur-

reasonable mooring depth.
Dinkel then showed video

The 2nd-grade classes at Tildenville Elementary, with help ,
from the TES staff, thought it would be nice to help the A -.- .
soldiers stationed in Iraq and bring them a little holiday
cheer. They collected snack items, games, toothbrushes,
baby wipes and many other items they thought the sol- .
diers needed. The students and teachers also made a
candy cane out of beads for each of the soldiers to remind
them of home. The students really enjoyed collecting and
packing the items for the soldiers and now can't wait to
hear back from them.

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


Be prayerful and don't allow the enemy
to bring fear. Fear produces many wrong
results that are not at first recognized,
because of the emotion and the human
perspective that we do indeed have some-
thing to fear.

1 Timothy 1:7 "God has not given us a
spirit of fear, but of power, love and
sound mind."

When fear (a demonic lying spirit) takes
over, it is not God's Spirit in control,
and:

1. We lose power/authority and begin to
be tentative in speaking the truth we
know;

2. We lose love/and become suspect of
all and make wrong judgments about
individuals motives and thus we become
guilty of the very thing we are fearful
of...lack of love toward another; and

3. We lose sound judgment and begin to
make wrong decisions in almost every
area not just in the area of the "fear".

Take captive every thought to Christ and
every feeling too. Clothe yourself in
Christ from the inside out and walk on
in the Light/Truth that you have.

Maxey Elementary


school campus
The First Academy (TFA)
held a ribbon-cutting ceremony
for its new, $12 million upper
school campus.
The state-of-the-art campus
for grades 9-12 features more
than 30 classrooms and en-.
hanced use-specific learning
environments such as science
and computer labs and .des-
ignated spaces for visual and
performing arts, technology
and mass media studies. The
two-story, 55,000-square-foot
building has interior hallways
and is equipped with the latest
in technological and functional
infrastructure.
The construction of the up-
per school campus follows
several years of growth. Since
the 2003-2004 school year,
TFA has experienced a 45 per-
cent increase in enrollment for
grades 9-12.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony
on Tuesday, Jan. 20, is the lat-
est in a series of new facili-
ties to open at TFA, beginning
with the newly-expanded lower
school in 2006, followed by the
F. Ray Dorman Field House
at the Payne Stewart Athletic
Complex, the lighted five-court
Dizney Family Tennis Center
and an expanded and updated
school library.
"These are exciting days on
the campus of The First Acad-
emy," said Dr. Steve Whitaker,
headmaster. "We had another
state athletic championship this
year, we are opening the doors
on a brand-new upper school
campus and we continue to
welcome new families to our
school community."

ment a post-secondary plan.

PAID ADVERTISEMENT



Dear President Bush:

I wanted to take a moment as we move into a new year and approach the end of your
presidency to thank you for your service. I know the last eight years have been filled with
tremendous challenges. As you have endeavored to serve our country, you have paid a
dear cost. Thank you for your willingness to pay it.

And though I believe your actions should always be open for debate and critique, I do
feel I must apologize for the unrelenting vicious attacks you have endured. Your values,
mannerisms, and principles from day one have been caricatured for political gain. I have
found some of the tactics employed by your opponents to be mean-spirited and lacking in
integrity.

At the same time, I would like to thank you for the tremendous example' you have set for
us in welcoming a new president. At the end of your term with a new President having
been elected, you have shown grace, dignity, and real leadership. As we prepare to
welcome President Obama, I know I will be following your example of working to make
him successful. I pledge to you that I will choose a path different than your opponents
chose following each of your elections.

You have provided us with a real opportunity to end the cycle of hatred and intolerance.
Though I find much to disagree with in our new President, I will respect him, engage in
honest critique and work to make him successful. I mourn what we have forfeited in the
last eight years in political discourse but I as well look forward to a new opportunity.
I pray that I will live up to your example.

I do want to specifically thank you for keeping our country safe these last years. No
doubt 9/11 changed our country. As history has already recorded, your actions have kept
America safe. You have done an admirable job.

Nobody likes war. Appropriately the debate about the reasons and the execution of the
war will go on for years. I'm not sure I have the vantage point to adequately judge your
leadership on such an issue. I abhor violence. And I do believe the system of utilizing
power and violence is a vastly imperfect methodology. Of course much of my viewpoint
stems from my Christian influence. The path of Christ's Kingdom is marked by humility
and characterized by love, forgiveness, and service. None-the-less, I do believe God does
utilize governments and their imperfect methods to keep evil in check as He ushers in the
Kingdom through followers of Christ.

I believe you made tough, unpopular decisions.
I believe you made them with the intent of curbing evil.
I believe you made them in consultation with others.
And ultimately, I recognize the sovereignty of God in working out his plans.

None of those reasons removes some of the tension I feel about engaging in war. With all
of its accompanying ugliness, I guess I hope neither I nor any President loses that tension.

What can We say about the economy? Wow, did our extravagances of the past come
home to roost or what? No doubt we have left a period of unprecedented prosperity in our
world. But it came accompanied with a resurgence of greed and selfishness. We saw it
in government. We saw it on Wall Street. And we saw it on Main Street as we over spent,
over bought, and over built. It's time for correction not just in our laws and oversight but
in our values as well. I only hope our "bailout" efforts don't relieve the natural and
necessary pain we need to feel to bring about real change.

Again, thank you for your service. I pray for peace in your life as you enter the next
phase. I do believe you were the right man at the right time for our country.

May God Bless you and your family!
