As the new environmental education
building is completed at the Oakland Nature
Preserve, plans are Under way for installing
educational displays in the new museum. In
the interest of interpreting cultural history, as
well as natural history, there will be a sec-
tion devoted to the Indian populations that
existed around Lake Apopka. It is said that
when the earliest settlers arrived here, there
were at least six villages in the vicinity, and
numerous artifacts including arrowheads and
pottery pieces have been found.
ONP asks for donations of any of these
pieces available to be included in the educa-
tional display.
An open house is taking place this Satur-


day, Jan. 31, at ONP's new Environmental
Education Center from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
There will be tours of the building, the board-
walk and Upland Trail.
In addition, there will be a demonstration
of hunting techniques including bow and ar-
rows and atlatl darts. Jonathan Ahlers of Oc-
ala, a knowledgeable student of that era, will
demonstrate knapping, the art of chipping
stone points, and will demonstrate how some
of these were used. He has also prepared a
display of the different types of points found
in different regions as well as tools used to
make them.
Call Jim Thomas at 407-656-8277 if you
can provide pieces for this display.

Anderson, Wilsen vie

for District 2 in Ocoee


Windermere resident Ariel Kennedy is pictured among his 200 pairs of specialty sneakers.

UCF finance major makes money

by collecting far-out athletic shoes


By Lani Llanes
Walk into Windermere
resident Ariel Kennedy's
bedroom, and it feels like
you have just walked into the
backroom of a shoe store.
Literally hundreds of boxes
filled with designer and custom
sneakers line the walls of his


bedroom and walk-in closet.
Kennedy has more than 200
pairs of skateboard-style shoes,
to be exact, each one with its
own kick of personality.
This 20-year-old sophomore
accounting and finance major
at the University of Central
Florida used his smarts and
turned his passion for fashion


into what he likes to call a "nice
little investment."
When he's not at school
or working at a local bank,
Kennedy logs onto various
sneaker blogs to find out what
other collectors are searching
for. If he has the right fit to what

No opponent
qualified for Keller's
District 4 City
Commission seat.

By Mary Anne Swickerath
Only District 2 voters will
go to the polls in Ocoee's
March 10 Municipal Election.
District 4 Commissioner Joel
Keller, who is finishing his,
first term in office, drew no
opposition for his seat by the
end of qualifying last Friday.
District 2 Commissioner Scott
Anderson will face one chal-
lenger, Rosemary Wilsen. No
other commission seats are up
for election this year.
Keller, an 18-year resident
of the city, told The West Or-
ange Times: "I'm very hon-
ored that citizens think I'm
doing a good job for them, and
I hope for the next three years
to continue doing a good job.
It's a nice vote of confidence,


and I thank them for their sup-
port."
His greatest concern at this
time and over his next term is
to improve the infrastructure
of the city.
"We'd like to get some fed-
eral funds to help us do some
of the projects we'd like to do
in the city," he said.
These projects include a
much-needed western sewer
loop and road improvements,
as well as the demolition of
the old Colony Plaza eyesore
on West Colonial Drive and
Maguire Road.
Commissioner Anderson,
who has his own retail sales
business, has served on the
City Commission for four
consecutive terms and told the
Times he is running again be-
cause he wants "to continue on
the path to a better Ocoee."
He, like Keller, is focused
on improving the city's infra-
structure, especially the roads

Buchanan and Gregory

qualify in Winter Garden


Four candidates have
thrown in their hats for Winter
Garden's upcoming municipal
election.
The city's qualifying pe-
riod ended at noon Tuesday.
Elections will be held for City
Commission seats representing
Districts 2, 3 and 4. Each term
of office is for three years.
The District 2 race features
incumbent Bob Buchanan and
Thomas Gregory, a former
vice chairman of the Orange
County Environmental Protec-
tion Commission.
In both districts 3 and 4, .in-
cumbents Harold Bouler and
Colin Sharman were the only


candidates to qualify, and they
are unopposed for their respec-
tive seats.
Winter Garden voters will
go to the polls to choose their
commissioners on March 10.
Candidates must live in the
district for which they are run-
ning, and voters can only cast
ballots for their district's race.
Winter Garden's new district
map, updated in December,
can be viewed online at www.
WinterGarden-fl.gov.

registration or early or absen-
tee voting, contact the Orange
County Supervisor of Elec-
tions at 407-836-2070.


W.G. lowers parking fees

for downtown businesses


By Michael Laval
Business owners in down-
town Winter Garden are get-
ting a break on parking fees
owed to the city.
The City Commission is
poised to pass an ordinance at
its Feb. 12 meeting that would
cut the fee for each business by
$2,000. In 2007, Winter Gar-
den adopted a policy charging
downtown businesses $7,000
as an alternative to meet-
ing the city's requirements
for providing on-site parking
spaces. The commission tenta-
tively approved the proposed
ordinance at last Thursday's
meeting.
Revenues generated by the


parking fee have been placed
in a fund intended to provide
for new parking facilities in
the downtown area. Since its
creation, Planning Director Ed
Williams told the commission,
the city re-evaluated the costs
of construction of public park-
ing spaces and determined the
amount to be $15,000. The fee
is based on one-third the price
of land and construction for a
typical parking space, result-
ing in each business owing
$5,000.
"This should help encour-
age development down-
town," City Manager Mi-
chael Bollhoefer said.

The former Winter Garden Library on Cypress Street is being renovated and will become
offices for the Winter Garden Fire Department officials. The entrance will remain on the
eat side of the building.


By Amy Quesinberry
Officials at the Winter Garden Fire Department will have some
breathing room in July when they move from a 900-square-foot
trailer to a renovated building with 5,100 square feet.
The former Winter Garden Library on Cypress Street is being
remodeled and updated to create office space for the fire department
administration, which has been operating out of a 25-year-old
trailer for more than a decade.
Fire Chief John Williamson, who spoke to The West Orange
Times last week from his cramped office at Station 24, said he is
ready for some spacious digs.
"With six people in here, we've kind of outgrown this," he
said.
The new office space will retain the same layout as the old
library, with the entrance on the east side of the building. Built
in 1969, the structure needed a serious update to bring it to code,
the chief said.
The restrooms were not compliant with the Americans with
Disabilities Act, and the heating and air-conditioning system was
poorly out of date and unserviceable.

A Silent Tear


Just close your eyes and you will see
all the memories that you have of me
Just sit and relax and you will find
I'm really still there inside your mind
Don't cry for me now I'm gone, for
I am in the land of the song.

There is no pain, there is no fear,
so dry away that silent tear.
Don't think of me in the dark & cold,
for here I am on streets of gold.
I'm in that place that's filled with
love, known to you all as
Heaven Above.

We love & Miss you

Wings Of The Angels

A gentle wind blew across the land
Reaching out to take a hand
For on the winds the angels came
Calling out our mother's name.

Left behind the children's tears
Loving memories of the years
Of joy and love, a life well spent
And now to God our mother's sent.
On angel's wings, a heavenly flight
The journey home, toward the light
To those who weep, a life is gone
But in God's love, our mother's home.

Health Central Auxiliary

offers scholarships to students

majoring in healthcare


Health Central Auxiliary, the
volunteer association that sup-
ports Health Central in Ocoee,
is offering scholarships to high
school and college students in-
terested in pursuing a career in
healthcare. The $2,000 schol-
arships are awarded each year
(for the first four years only
and as long as the student
remains in good academic
standing). These scholarships
are available to students and
hospital employees who plan
to major in a healthcare-related
field.
A minimum grade-point
average of 3.5 is required of
high school students, and a
minimum grade-point average
of 3.2 is required of college
students. All applicants must
be full-time students.
Beginning Feb. 14, schol-
arship applications will be
available at the Health Central
Information Desk arid the Vol-


unteer Office, both located on
the first floor of Health Cen-
tral hospital. Applications are
also available at Health Cen-
tral's long-term care facility,
Health Central Park, in Winter
Garden and in the student ser-
vices offices at the following
schools: Dr. Phillips, West
Orange, Ocoee and Olympia
high schools; Central Florida
Christian Academy; and Wind-
ermere Preparatory School.
The deadline for returning
an application to the Health
Central Volunteer Office is
March 31 by 5 p.m. Health
Central is located at 10000 W.
Colonial Drive in Ocoee.

determined by a selection com-
mittee. Qualified applicants
are subject to be interviewed.

also like to see the construction
of a sidewalk along Silver Star
Road on the north side of Starke
Lake for pedestrian safety, and
he hopes to see the city work
with schools in the area of rec-
reation.
"I want to improve the com-
munity, not expand our commu-
nity," he said.
Rosemary Wilsen, a social
worker at the West Orange
Christian Service Center, is
making her third bid for the
District 2 seat and promises to
listen to what the citizens want
and need.
"I am very concerned about
our community and how it's
evolved," she said.


She feels there has been a
lack of economic development
in the city and said it is "a cry-'
ing shame" that Ocoee residents
now regularly go outside of the
city to shop in Winter Garden
and Clermont.
"I think the city needs to take
a pro-active role in economic
development," she added.
Unregistered voters must reg-
ister to vote by Feb. 9 to be eli-
gible to pick4heir candidate in
this March 10 election. District
2 voters will cast their ballots at
the Ocoee Community Center,
125 N. Lakeshore Drive. This
will be the only polling site for
this election.

city clerk's office at 407-905-

Parking Fees- (Continued fromA)


Mayor John Rees agreed:
"This is a good thing to do, es-
pecially in these times."
If passed, the new ordinance
would also allow Bollhoefer to
negotiate with business owners
on making the parking fees in
installment payments, provided
that at least 25 percent be paid
prior to occupancy. The exist-
ing ordinance requires the fee
to be paid in full before busi-
nesses can open their doors.
In other business, the elected
officials:
approved the first reading
of a proposed ordinance cutting
term lengths for Planning and
Zoning Board members from
four years to two. The change,
Bollhoefer said, is designed to
create greater accountability to
the commission and provide op-
portunities for more citizens to

they want, which he usually
does, he is almost always able
to sell them for double what
he originally paid. However,
in some cases, he is able to
exceed that 200 percent profit
range. One pair of sneakers the
young entrepreneur purchased
for $200 dollars recently sold
for $800.
Known as "SportFreak"
in the underground sneaker
culture, Kennedy has quite
a reputation. One of his fans
even made a limited edition
T-shirt featuring the shoe
collector striking his signature
pose pointing at the camera.
On the same site where
his shirt can be purchased,
3RCustoms.com, Kennedy
shows off his fashion-forward
style. Taking a picture a day
for four straight months,
Kennedy's unique shoes are
showcased in a time elapsed
collage.
"I think my reputation
has really helped me sell as
many shoes as I have," said
Kennedy.
He stArted collecting
sneakers four years ago,
buying them online, at sneaker
conventions or in stores.
He has sold an estimated 45
coveted pairs, and not only
are people all over the United
States wearing SportFreak's
finds, but people in places as
far away as Indonesia and
Sweden are also rocking the
far-out foot fashions.
"I like the more futuristic
styles like the Supras," said
Kennedy.
All in Kennedy's size, an
11 or 12 depending on the
brand, you will rarely find
him wearing the same pair of
sneakers twice. From Nike to
Reebok, Puma and Pumps,
he has almost any shoe
imaginable. Kennedy will
oftentimes challenge friends to
name one he doesn't have.
Of his favorites, and shoes
he will one day put on display,
are glow-in-the-dark Reebok
High-Tops based off the 1982
sci-fi action movie, Tron, and
his highly sought-after Nike
Heineken's. However, most
likely front and center on this
display will be Kennedy's
custom Nike Dunk SBs based
on a Back to the Future sequel.
Inspired by character Marty
McFly's colorful lenticular hat,
the DeLorean and the Mattell
hoverboard, this pair, Kennedy
happily adds, is signed by Back
to the Future sequel writer
Bob Gale, Jeffrey Weismann,
who played George McFly,
and Christopher Lloyd, who
portrayed the one and only
Doc Brown.
Kennedy said he stopped
buying shoes months ago and,
with a few exceptions, hopes
to increase business and have
all of his 200 pairs of sneakers
sold by the time he is 22.

(Continued from 1A)

Renovations cost the city
$675,000. Williamson said
completion is anticipated by
early July, and then the officials
can start moving out of 'the
trailer, which will probably be
used as storage space for the
fire department.
"We just really appreciate
being able to get out of here and
getting'into a fixed facility with
more space and a conference
room," he said. "It really takes
us into the 21st century."

MetroWest Elem. comprehensive renovation is under way


Work has begun on the
comprehensive renovation of
MetroWest Elementary School.
The project has a total budget of
$23.8 million, and the construc-
tion work is scheduled to be
completed along a three-phase
timeline.
The first of two two-story
classroom buildings is slated
for completion before the first
day of school in August. The
second classroom building will
be ready for students in August
2010. When the project is done,
the school will have 48 new
classrooms.
"MetroWest Elementary
serves a vibrant, growing and
very diverse community," said
School Board Member Vicky


Bell of District 4. "The school is
a great facility, and the upcom-
ing improvements will make it
an even better place for learning
in the years to come."
The facility is one of 16
modular classroom schools
located throughout the district
"that the Citizen's Construction
Oversight and Value Engineer-
ing Committee recommended
be replaced.
"The comprehensive reno-
vation program is the process
by which we upgrade existing
facilities commensurate with
the district's school prototype
standards," said Superinten-
dent Ronald Blocker.- "Those
standards incorporate the latest
cost-effective state-of-the-art


building products, technology
and construction techniques and
literally makes all OCPS school
facilities comparable."
Starmer Ranaldi Planning
and Architecture developed the
plans for the renovation project,
and The Morganti Group is the
on-site construction manage-
ment firm.
"We are very excited to pro-
vide the school with improved
technology in all classrooms,
enhanced lighting throughout
the campus and other improve-
ments," said Chief Facilities
Officer Bob Proie. "These fa-
cility upgrades are quality in-
vestments in the education of
our students for the next gen-
eration."

Bloom N' Grow Garden Club,

ONP promoting wood duck project


By Jim Thomas
Oakland Nature Preserve president

The wood duck is one of Florida's
most beautiful waterfowl and is now
fairly common even in urban and sub-
urban wetlands, ponds and lakes. The
duck is unique in that it will only nest
in cavities in hollow trees, and this is
the major limiting factor to populations
in Florida. By providing nestboxes with
the proper dimensions, we are able to
simulate hollow trees and thereby help
increase popula-
tion sizes.
Nestboxes
should be hung
on trees or posts
and should be in
place by mid-
February for the
spring nesting
season. They
should be hung
as high as pos-
sible, but they
will be utilized
anywhere between five feet to 50 feet
high. Boxes should have two inches of
wood shavings or straw in the bottom
and must have a wire "ladder" in the
inside front to allow ducklings to leave
the box. The simplest way to hang the
box is to have two holes in the back
near the top, drive two large nails in the
tree or post at an angle and then hang
the box over the nails. The boxes can
also be attached to the post with heavy
nails or large screws.
Predation, primarily by raccoons, is
frequently a problem. Nestboxes can be
placed on poles out in the water, four or
five feet above high water. Also, sheet-
metal baffles can be used around the
tree or post where the box is installed
to prevent animals from reaching the
box. A piece of stovepipe, opened and
expanded then nailed to the post works


well.
The ducks will begin nesting in early
spring and usually lay eight to 14 eggs.
They are incubated only by the female,
but her mate usually remains close by.
The ducklings hatch after 28-32 days,
and the ducklings leave the box soon
after hatching. Amazingly, they will
drop 40-50 feet to the ground without'
injury. The mother waits to lead them
to the water. They eat aquatic plants,
seeds, fruits and small insects, fish and
crustaceans. Unfortunately, the duck-
lings experi-
ence predation
by a number of
wildlife spe-
cies, including
large fish and
-turtles. They
*survive best
Where dense
growths of
aquatic plants
ow provide cover.
The Bloom
'N' Grow Gar-
den Club and Oakland Nature Preserve
have joined forces to increase our popu-
lations of these beautiful birds in West
Orange County by making available
nestboxes at no cost to qualified ho-
meowners. Recipients must live on a
suitable water body in West Orange or
South Lake County and must complete
a survey sheet at the end of the nesting
season that indicates data on nesting
successes. The results will be studied
to get a better understanding of the sta-
tus of the ducks in this area. The boxes,
built by volunteers, will be distributed
as long as the current supply lasts.
Interested recipients must complete a
simple application form and call Tom
Rodriguez at ONP (407-905-0054) to
arrange for pick-up. Survey forms must.
be completed and returned in Septem-
ber.

Glenn Joiner said that during repainting
of the Honor Roll board all the names were

before to please drop in his place of business
and do so again so the board can be completed
as soon as possible.
There will be a big .dance welcoming

55 years ago
A tea held at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Dudley Wilson on Lake Butler and sponsored
by the Winter Garden Welfare League raised
$324 for the March of Dimes. It was one of
the outstanding highlights of the drive to fight
polio. Mrs. James Breadwell, president of
the Welfare League, appointed committees
to look after every detail of the joyous event.
Mrs. Warren Hurley was chairman of the
entertainment committee.
As the drive enters its final week, Mrs.
LB Rodgers Jr. and Mrs. BertwRoper, co-


chairmen of the Winter Garden area, have the
activities well-organized. Mrs. L.A. Bumette
is chairman of the Mothers March. One of
the outstanding benefits will be the dance in
the City Auditorium sponsored by the Pinch

35 years ago
Floridians have a unique haven in our'
nation's capital. It's a beautifully restored 1850
Bayfront townhouse located within one block
of the Capitol grounds. Called Florida House,
it is a concept that is long overdue and will
undoubtedly be imitated. Rhea Chiles, wife of
Sen. Lawton Chiles, is president of the Florida
House project and has worked long and hard
to see the ambitious goal realized.

15 years ago
Fifty years from now when development
surrounds us, it will be comforting to know
that one small comer of West Orange County
was saved in its natural state for future
generations to enjoy because of the diligence
and forethought of County Commissioner
Vera Carter. Officials of OrangeCounty and
the South Florida Water Management District
jointly dedicated the Tibet Butler Preserve and
Vera Carter Environmental Center.
Funeral services were held for Bill
Marshall, outstanding photographer at Walt
Disney World ever since it opened in 1971. As
a photography supervisor, he took thousands
of pictures for Disney, including movie stars,
presidents and kings. He also took many
pictures of local youngsters on swim teams
and at YMCA activities, many of which
appeared in this neWspaper.


To whom it may concern:
One mother's struggle for her handicapped
daughter has been a long and hard battle. I am a
warrior mother for my daughter, Joanie. No bu-
reaucrat ever cared what Joanie needed. All they
could say was, "We don't have the money."
No, the governor and the legislators do not care
about the disabled population in Florida. Gov.
Crist says that he is the "people's" governor and
not just another politician cozying up with special
interests. That statement is just a mirage, and we
know better. Mr. Crist says the state's poor, sick
and disabled will be spared any cuts; that is an-
other mirage.
How can a governor and legislators relate to the
common person when most of them are indepen-


dently wealthy?
My daughter and others on the Home and Com-
munity Based Waiver have had their service cut
down to the bone. Now they, the bureaucrats, are
going to do rebasing and cut some more. This is
just another one of their bad judgment calls, cut-
ting services to save money (which would only
work for the time being anyway).
Later on, the parents, who cannot handle all the
work that goes into being a disabled person's par-
ent, will have to piut that person into a group home
or institution. This option will just cost the state
more money.
The governor and state legislators do not live
in reality.

Writer: Local schools could lose another $107 million


Editor,
At the recent session on Jan. 14, the State Leg-
islature approved another $500 million in current
statewide cuts for education $103 million from
Orange County Schools alone for this school year.
They return to Tallahassee in March with the po-
tential to vote for an additional $107 million in cuts
from Orange County Schools for 2009-2010 be-
cause of statewide revenue shortfalls. The funding
for public schools has never been at greater risk.
Dozens of ideas are being considered here at the
local level to produce the revenue needed for this
shortfall.
But isn't it tragic that it comes down to our lo-
cal schools? My child's elementary school has
over 1,300 students and had to eliminate a dozen
teachers this school year just to help cover the $103
million loss. Now they are expected to do more?
How is that fair to our children? This school is 80
percent labor as it is; there is no administrative "fat"
to trim! And if we cut more teachers, how are they
expected to meet the class-size amendment? It's
a Catch-22.
It's time to act now! Please stand with us
and call, write or e-mail each of our local legisla-
tors and let them know that we want to save our
schools and find other ways to fund these education

system. We're not asking them to tax at will.
Why not start closing some of the tax loopholes
and collect revenue from uncollected areas such
as the sale of bottled water, Internet sales, charter
fishing boat fees, university stadium skyboxes,
accounting fees, and on and on? The billions that
could be collected from these annually could rescue
our schools and then some.
These are the websites to obtain legislative
contact information: www.myfloridahouse.gov

During the upcoming session.in Tallahassee, our
voices must be heard. If we act together, we can
make a difference in the future of our children and
education.
Thank your for helping save our schools!

marriage? Apparently in your view there is -
the gay agenda.
The voters of Florida overwhelmingly
approved Amendment 2, and even the liberal
state of California approved a traditional pro-
marriage amendment. The West Orange Times
is out of step with the community you serve,
a community which still supports traditional
values. You are free to join the big liberal daily
papers as they seek to undermine our Judeo-
Christian value system, but I would hope you
would choose to more accurately reflect the
values of our community in future editorials and

Joseph McMullen, an Oakland town commissioner, and his wife, Carmita, took their
5-year-old daughter, Madison, to Washington, D.C., to experience the inauguration of
President Barack Obama last week. They were among the 2 million people who traveled
to the country's capital, and although they didn't have tickets, they still secured a decent
spot after a 4-hour wait. He said: 'The crowd was excited, emotional and unified. People
from all across the country and different ethnic backgrounds gathered at the historical
area, in extremely cold weather, without any complaints....You could feel the energy
and the unity.' Above, the McMullens stand at the National Mall, where they watched the
ceremony on. a giant screen.

cer players (1-r) Tori Brown, Dominique Paige, Kylyn Woods, Dani Axtell and Kelly Lopez
struggled to stay warm prior to last week's 4-1 loss to Apopka in the opening round of the
district playoffs. Senior forward Sarah Kinsey scored the lone goal for the Lady Warriors,
who finished 9-5-5 on the season. The team will hold its annual awards banquet Feb. 7
at West Orange Country Club.


The fourth-ranked Panther
varsity basketball team played
host to sixth-ranked Winter Park
Saturday night. Senior guard
Chuck Ford poured in 17 points
and sophomore Shane Larkin
added 14 plus four assists as
DP manhandled the Wildcats
61-48.
The Panther defense, led
by junior Patrick Ryan, held
Winter Park standout Austin
Rivers to only 14 points. DP
(18-2, 5-1) extended its lead
to 21 points early in the fourth
quarter. Damani Cade delivered
15 points and nailed clutch
three-pointers to thwart Winter
Park's comeback attempt. DP


was set to play at West Orange
High on Tuesday night before
wrapping up its district sched-
ule Friday at East Ridge.
The Panthers got a tough
fight from visiting Ocoee last
week. After building a 12-point
lead in the first half, Ocoee ral-
lied to close the deficit to 37-35"
at halftime. The third quarter
saw the Panthers extend their
lead with the three-point shoot-
ing of Larkin (19 points, includ-
ing five three-pointers) and
Ford (25 points). Victor Gray
scored nine of his 15 points in
the fourth quarter and added
eight rebounds with a pair of
blocks.

Andrade was honored by
Ocoee High as its Subway
Scholar-Athlete of the Week
for Jan. 5. Andrade holds a
3.0 GPA.

crush Jones
The West Orange High varsity
wrestling team racked up 10 pins
to defeat Jones 72-6 last week.
"West Orange has gone from
not winning any matches in the
past several years to having a
4-2 regular season record, said
Coach Kristin lannuzzi. "The
team has worked extremely hard
this season and come so far."


CFP knocks off rival

The officers of the West Orange High Senior FFA went to the UF Research Center re-
cently to compete in Parliamentary Procedures. The students competed in Parly-Pro
Procedures, Extemporaneous Speaking, Prepared Speaking and Tractor Driving. The
Parly-Pro team won 1st place, along with Meg Wilson taking 1st place in Extemporane-
ous Speaking. The wins qualified the students to go to districts. Also, the Florida State
Fair will be held Feb. 10-12 in Tampa. Any donations from the community toward the

DP presents 'Translations'
The Dr. Phillips High School
Theatre Department present-
ed Brian Friel's play Transla-
tions last weekend. The cast
included Jeff Chamberlain,
Jeff Colangelo, Lauren Coo-
gan, Veronica Ewing, Phil Fus-
co, Jared Gerbig, Erik Nelson,
Alex Oyen, Michelle Rinehart
and Hunter Ringsmith.
- The students studied Irish
and English accents intensely
with dialect coach Ginny Kopf
for weeks. The one-act version


of the play, directed by Karen
Rugerio, was presented, along
with individual dramatic and
musical pieces, in preparation
for the District 5 Thespian Fes-
tival, which DPHS will host this
weekend, Jan. 30-31.
Translations deals with the
period in Irish history when
British troops were sent into
the Irish countryside to enforce
laws demanding that Gaelic,
the language of Ireland, be
replaced with English. Even
the names of places towns,
bridges, hills and lakes were


renamed and new maps were
printed to reflect the changes.
The events of the play unfold
in a traditional Irish hedge
school, where young Irish men
and women gather in an old
barn to learn to read and write,
not only in their own native lan-
guage, but in Greek and Latin
as well.
in Translations, Friel ex-
plores the power of language
and the need all humans have
to communicate with and to
understand each other.


Dr. Phillips High students recently won the Walk the Walk Runway Showdown held at
House of Blues at Downtown Disney. The event was a runway fashion face-off using Hur-
ley's summer 2009 men's and women's collection as interpreted and produced by the
students. Hurley's design team judged the schools on a 10-point scale based on overall
vibe, crowd support, flow of fashion show, creativity, energy, hair and makeup, school
spirit, promotional strategy and illustration of Hurley's brand message. The DPHS team
chose 'Living the Dream' as its show theme and earned $5,000 for the school's art and
music programs. Other Orlando high schools participating were Boone, Edgewater and
returning champ Winter Park. Hurley is a leading youth brand that includes sportswear,
footwear, eyewear, accessories, loungewear and swimsuits.

Bridgewater Middle


Montverde Academy Central Florida Prep


Bridgewater Middle now has a Student Wellness Advisory
Council made up of students and led by Karen Rich, caf-
eteria manager, and Darsani Sookdeo, science teacher.


Learning about nutrition
Bridgewater Middle School's
Student Wellness Advisory
Council (SWAC) is the 1st
of its kind in Orange County.
Led by Karen Rich, cafeteria
manager, and science teacher
Darsani Sookdeo, the panel
had a roundtable presentation
at the Florida School Nutrition
Association (FSNA) confer-
ence in November. As SWAC
students were presented with
questions from seven differ-
ent counties, FSNA members


were surprised when students
had questions for them. Their
impression on FSNA resulted
in the students receiving in-
vitations to this year's annual
conference on May 2.
Kern Halls, senior manager
for food and nutrition servic-
es, visited BWM last week to
speak with the SWAC team
about menus, nutrition and
recipes. SWAC is working on
a world cuisine tour represent-
ing five different cultures to go
along with the menu item of
the day.

A group OT 12 Montverae
Academy students left for
Washington, D.C. on Jan. 18
for the Presidential Inaugura-
tion ceremonies. The school
offered the trip because it gave
students an opportunity, to be
a part of an important moment
in history.
"I hope this is not the last his-
toric moment for our country in
electing' an African-American
president, but the beginning
of a new era for those who are
divided by race or gender in
our country can see, hear and
understand that the success
of us is us," said Headmaster


30 countries around the globe.
Students who made the trip
are from America, Australia,
the Bahamas, China, England,
Germany, Korea and Vietnam.
Senior Elyse Johnson, re-
cently voted by her peers as
most likely to be president,
was among the Montverde stu-
dents at the inauguration.
"I am so excited that our
school is able to participate in
such a historical event," she
said. "We are an international
school, and. in many ways I
feel we will be representing the
entire world because we are
such a diverse group."

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


The morning was going great...right on schedule to
get all of the Saturday chores completed. I was feel-
ing pretty in control when I turned into the market.
Yes, I had this day under control! I quickly com-
pleted my purchase and headed to the car, a heavy
bag of groceries in each hand; Out of the comer of
my eye, I spotted her, and then I heard her call out.
"Please, I need help!" she said. I lowered my gaze,
shook my head and whispered "I'm sorry" under my
breath. I opened the car, placed the bags and then
decided she probably just needed a little money. I
grabbed two dollars and started the car, tempted to
back out and go the other direction. Thankfully, I
didn't. As I drove around to where she stood, she was
already walking toward me, leaning on her cane.
When I stopped, she began to speak, but not to me at
first. "Oh, thank you, Jesus! You turned her around."
Then to me, "I need help. I just had dialysis, and I
need to get up on Colonial...I'm so sick and I need
something to eat." Wow.. .she needed a lot more that
two dollars, but I had so much to do! That's when I
knew that my schedule was about to change.

As we drove, she began to praise God and sing hymns.
When Ms. Bryan spoke again, it was God who got
my attention. She said that she was sitting in a chair
at the center, waiting, when God spoke. He said "Get
up and go outside. I am sending someone to help
you." Ms. Bryan knew that I was that woman. Un-
fortunately, I was not hearing his voice as clearly that
morning. Her next comment was even more gripping.
"I asked him to turn you around, and He did!"

I cannot express how grateful I am that I heard His
voice the second time. As I headed toward home, I
remembered His word:

Real religion, the kindthat passes muster before God
the Father, is this: Reach out to the homeless and
loveless in their plight, and guard against corruption
from the godless world. James 1:27 (The Message)

it helped raise to donate to Operation Migration, an organization that protects and pro-
motes the migration of endangered whooping cranes from Wisconsin to Florida. All stu-
dents at Windermere Elementary participated in the fund-raising effort, led by science
lab teacher Lynn Tidmus. In all, the WES student body collected more than $2,100.

Thornebrooke Elementary


Tildenville Elementary is celebrating its school spirit with T-shirts. The school purchased
every student, teacher and staff member a school spirit T-shirt to wear on Fridays. The
purchase was funded with a portion of the money earned as a 2007-08 A school. Re-
cently, yearly class pictures were taken with every student and teacher in the green and
gold spirit wear. Modeling the T-shirts are Dr. Balgobin, principal; Ms. Alford and her
2nd-grade students; and Mr. Ryan, guidance counselor.


Maxey Elementary


Ms. Santo motivated her 2nd- and 3rd-grade students at Thornebrooke Elementary to
collect canned goods to help the community. Before collecting canned goods, the stu-
dents estimated the number of cans it would take to line the perimeter of the classroom.
Then students used the canned goods to do the actual problem solving. The cans were
later donated to assist the needy in the local community.

Dear President Obama:
Welcome to your first full day in office. I enjoyed watching not only your celebra-
tion yesterday, but the country's as well. We opened up Westwood Church and invited
people to come and watch the ceremony on the big screens in the sanctuary. We recog-
nized the historic proportions of the event. And following President Bush's exit in the
helicopter, we stopped and prayed for you.
I do want you to know as a pastor, Christian, and a member of the religious commu-
nity, you will have my support. I'm not sure as of yet what that all entails, but here are
some of my initial thoughts.
Support: Prayer
I personally commit to pray for you and your family. And as a pastor of a Christian
church, I will so lead mycongregation. We will pray for you and not against you!
Support: Volunteer Support
I have heard your call to make ourselves available as volunteers. We are writing letters
to Mayor Crotty, Sheriff Demings, Superintendant Blocker, and Governor Crist asking
for a "Westwood Church-sized" project to help save public money and provide support
during this time of financial crisis. Personally, I am offering my services to help orga-
nize other churches in getting involved in such efforts.
Support: Dialogue
As you wrestle with challenging issues, I pledge to engage in honest dialogue with you
and your administration. I recognize as a Christian, a pastor, and leader of a religious
community, my role in public discussion. And therefore, I look forward to joining
with Christians, Muslims, Jews, and people of other faiths in ensuring that national
dialogues are flavored with healthy conversation about morality and values.
Support: A Willingness to Sacrifice
I heard your call for taking responsibility, the willingness to sacrifice, and the need to
.make tough decisions. As one citizen, I give you my permission to make those tough
calls. Yes, I will engage you in dialogue about what I think is important. But I do
recognize your need to adjust things that directly impact me. I accept your invitation to
sacrifice.
I believe as we walk this journey together, some other opportunities will come to mind.
If you have any ways in which I or my congregation can be of service, please don't
hesitate to call upon us.
I hope you have a blessed day. As I write this email, I am watching the National Prayer
Service. I join you in your prayers!
