Residents can put in
a garden on a small
piece of land in Winter
Garden for $20 a year.
By Amy Quesinberry

It's said that nothing brings people
together quite like food. If that's the
case, then it should be quite a party on
the five acres of land in Winter Garden
that is being turned into a community
garden.
Organizers have held meetings to get
the idea rolling, and about a dozen resi-
dents are eager to get started on their
special plot of soil. The Winter Garden
Community Garden is planned for the
northeast comer of Pennsylvania Av-
enue and Ninth Street
Plot No. 1 will belong to Winter
Garden resident and Master Gardener
Jerry Carris, who will use his space as
a demonstration garden. He and Master
Gardener Edmund Thralls will also be
available to all gardeners for advice and
consultations.,
What can residents plant in their
space?
"They can grow anything they want,
as long as it's legal," Carris said. He's
hoping to see rows and rows of organic
vegetables, but gardeners are free to put
in flowers too.
And where else could you rent a piece
of city-owned property for $20 a year?
The fee will cover water usage, sig-
nage and incidentals, according to Car-
ris.
The city of Winter Garden gave
$5,000 toward the project at a recent
City Commission meeting that will help
pay for connecting the garden to city
water, building a fence and installing a
bridge over a ditch on the property.
Commissioner Colin Sharman has
signed up for a garden plot and will
plant fruits and vegetables there.
"I want to hopefully grow something
I can put on the kitchen table," he said
Monday.
The Sharman plot will be tended by
him and his wife, Cyndi, and, maybe, if


OCPS board members to discuss

budget cuts at town hall meetings


At its meeting last week, the
Orange County School Board
approved scheduling eight
town hall meetings to address
budget cuts. Board members
are hosting 90-minute meet-
ings in their own districts to
provide an update on the prog-
ress and difficulties in prepar-


ing an under-funded budget
for next year.
People attending will hear
about state funding and the
superintendent's budget study
committee topics and be able
to provide feedback to their
School Board member.
The town hall meetings will


be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m.,
with doors open at 6 p.m. The
first meeting for District 7 was
held Monday.
Upcoming meetings sched-
uled are:

Ocoee celebrates Black History Month


The city of Ocoee will cel-
ebrate Black History Month
throughout February in sever-
al different ways this year, and
the public is invited to attend
all the events.
The city and the Human
Relations Diversity Board
will present the fourth annual
Black History Essay Contest.
This year the theme is "One
Dream, One Nation." Stu-
dents from local elementary
and middle schools will recite
theiL winning essays Wednes-


day, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m. at City
Hall, 150 N. Lakeshore Drive.
The event will be taped live
on Ocoee TV, Channel 200,
Bright House Cable.
Feb. 16-19 the Orisirisi per-
formers will hold a special ed-
ucational workshop for OMS
students and teach them the
beauty of African life, culture
and dance. On Thursday, Feb.
19, an Orisirisi African Folk,
lore performance will be held
at Ocoee Middle School at 7
p.m. Oriirisi (pronounced 0-


re-she-re-she) is a Yoruba term
meaning different things.
Throughout February, resi-
dents can turn to Ocoee TV to
watch programs that will high-
light significant events from
American history. Milestones
of the Civil Rights Movement
will show archival footage of
events, including the Mont-
gomery Bus Boycott, Little
Rock Nine, the Selma March
and the March on Washington.

he's persistent, his two sons, Austin, 13,
and Brandon, 16.
Excited about the community garden
concept, Sharman said: "I think it's a
great opportunity for citizens to try gar-
dening without the risk of tearing up
their own yards. And they will have the
help of a master gardener."
Carris, who has been a master gar-
dener for 20 years, is also looking for
grant money so raised beds can be used
in the garden. The area is "kind of a wet
place," he said, so plant beds raised off
the ground will produce better.
If raised beds are put in, each plot
will measure 4 feet by 16 feet. If the
beds are at ground level, they will be
larger 10 feet by 20 feet.
The Winter Garden Community Gar-
den will be an environmentally friendly
place. Pesticides are a no-no, Carris
said, except as a last resort. He said he
has never used a pesticide in his garden,
and he's been planting for 25 years.
"We will discourage the use of pes-
ticides," he said, and will encourage
growers to use integrated pest man-
agement, in which gardeners begin by
choosing plants that are resistant to
disease and insects. If they encounter
pests, they should handpick the critters
off. If that doesn't work, Carris said,
then they can try an organic pesticide.
There are a few other rules, too.
Among them: gardeners must sign a
contract, keep their garden neat and
clean and stay out of other people's
gardens unless invited in.
"If someone has a plot and doesn't
maintain it, then we'll nicely kick them
out," said Carris, who was only half-
kidding. "But we'll give them a warn-
ing first."
Residents living in the city limits or
in unincorporated Orange County with
a Winter Garden address can partici-
pate.
The property cordoned off for the
garden is land that the city of Winter
Garden has earmarked for affordable
housing, but that plan is at least five
years away, so the space can be used

Weekend art show to

focus on wildlife, nature


By Amy Quesinberry

If you're looking for some
unusual driftwood art or fur-
niture or want to see fine-art
paintings of old Florida with
its wading birds, hawks, lake
sunsets and swamplands, the
upcoming Wildlife & Nature
Art Show will have this and
more. And it is serving as a
fund-raiser for the Oakland
Nature Preserve and Friends
of Lake Apopka because lo-
cal painters are donating a
portion of their sales to these
two organizations.
The event is this Saturday
and Sunday, Feb. 7 and 8,
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 2001
Binion Road at Harmon
Road in Apopka (overlook-
ing the eastern shore of Lake
Apopka).
This is the first time Bill
Tippit of Driftwood Gardens
is opening his business to the


public, and he hopes to see
a great turnout during the
two days. He said he doesn't
even mind if guests just want
to stop by on their way to or
from Mount Dora's big an-
nual art festival, also this
weekend.
Tippit wants folks to come
out and view the artwork
and to see the vast selection
of bromeliads and driftwood
furniture his business sells.
The show is being hosted
by Driftwood Gardens and
thegreengalleries.com and
is being held indoors in
conjunction with the exotic
plant sale and greenhouse
open house.
Thegreengalleries.com
is an Internet wholesale
company that sells fine-
art paintings that are based
on the look of old Florida.

cabbage and maybe carrots. I'd
like to have some collards, as
well as some turnips, and some
tomatoes maybe. It depends on
when you can plant it."
Carris hopes to see the garden
become as successful as the one
he heard of up north that has
190 plots and a waiting list to
get in.
"Where these things are op-
erating, they're real successful
in bringing people together," he
said.


Wilder agreed: "In addition to
te fun part of it, the exercise will
be good too. And the meeting the
people and the socializing it's
going to be pretty neat."
Another idea Carris has is to
hold a gathering once a year and
munch on salads prepared with
vegetables grown in the garden.
As part of this garden project,
the Cooperative Extension Ser-
vice will hold classes on nutri-
tion, healthy eating and other
related topics.

Advanced technology that
uses microsonic sound waves
to help dissolve dangerous
blood clots is now available in
the Health Central Cardiovas-
cular Lab, offering new hope
for patients who develop Deep
Vein Thrombosis, also known
as DVT.
DVT occurs when blood
clots develop in the veins of a
person's arms or legs. DVT is
a serious and untreated health
problem in the US, with ap-
proximately 600,000 new cases
annually.
In about 10 percent of the
cases, a piece of the clot breaks
away and travels to the lungs.
This condition, called Pulmo-
nary Embolism, can be fatal
within a few hours, leading
to more than 30,000 deaths a
year.
Options for treating DVT
have been limited until now, ac-
cording to Dr. David Varnagy of
Surgical Specialists of Central
Florida, and they all had risks
associated with them. "Finally,
we have a minimally invasive
option that very quickly and
safely dissolves a clot," he said.
"We believe this will mean bet-
ter outcomes for patients who
experience a DVT."
The new treatment, called
Microsonic Accelerated Throm-
bolysis, uses a sophisticated


device housed inside an endo-
vascular catheter (long, flexible
tube). The catheter is gently
threaded through the vein di-
rectly to the clot. Once there,
the system transmits microsonic
sound waves while simultane-
ously forcing clot-dissolving
drugs deep into the clot. The
microsonic waves open up the
tightly bound clot, allowing


the drugs to gently dissolve it
away.
In clinical studies, Microsonic
Accelerated Thrombolysis has
proven to be significantly faster
and safer than previous treat-
ment alternatives while also dis-
solving the clot more complete-
ly. The treatment works best on
newer clots, ideally those that
are less than four weeks old.


Individuals who think they
might have a DVT should con-
tact their physician immedi-
ately.
More information on DVT
treatment is available through
Surgical Specialists of Central
Florida, located at Health Cen-
tral, 10000 W. Colonial Drive,
Suite 495, in Ocoee, 407-293-
5944.

Anytime a project can bring together
different races and generations in a
community, we cheer for its success.
The city of Winter Garden is to be
commended for offering a five-acre
plot of land off Ninth Street to be used
as a community garden by any citi-
zen who is interested. We think it will
promote conversations and friendships
among people who might not other-
wise have a shared interest or reason
to get together. And it is a great oppor-
tunity for families to create something
together and reap the benefits of hard


Editor,
I am writing to comment on the Feb. 2 front-
page article about the estimated 12 million il-
legal immigrants and undocumented aliens in
America written by Victor M. Ramos, staff
writer, in the Orlando Sentinel.
The article was so captivating that I emailed
the Orlando Sentinel Web site address across
the USA and around the globe for family and
friends to read. Illegal immigration and un-
documented aliens hands-down is a definite
problem.
Frankly, I applaud any elected official,
group, or populace that supports sending ille-
gals packing to their home-country with the ex-
ception of the small percentage claiming politi-
cal asylum (crimes associated with potentially
erroneous political accusations).
Why am I so darn harsh? Well, I see what's
happening in Florida and in other states. Illegals
and undocumented aliens are disrupting our so-
cial systems, employment areas and our once
"peaceful" and relatively safe neighborhoods.
When you consider that illegals are detrimen-
tally impacting every facet of American life as
we "knew it," in such numbers; we must remove


work with fresh and healthy food on
their plate or beautiful flowers on their
table.
We want this garden to flourish, and
we are anxious to see what can be ac-
complished when a project truly brings
citizens together.
The annual cost of $20 is minimal
compared to the likely delicious and
fragrant outcome.
What a fine idea from Winter Garden
officials during this economic down-
turn, and what a great community re-
source.

them. America cannot afford to support 12 mil-
lion or more people that are not on our census
or paying into the financing of America.
America is not a human-dumping ground
for just anyone who flops here and thinks
that American taxpayers must accept them as
the norm and support them in one or another
way.
Our families through the decades built Amer-
ica. And, they surely paid the price in so many
ways.
Our elected officials should not become
confused or soft on illegals for our sake and
America's future. Our rocky economy and over-
whelmed social system's bottom-line behooves
us to energize and support America's elected
officials and immigration personnel in remov-
ing all illegals. We simply cannot deal with the
numbers.
Finally, since illegals are entering America
for our lifestyle; I support handing them a copy
of the Declaration of Independence in their own
language upon deportation. Let them go home
and build their own America like we did!

High-tech entertainment


produced in Ocoee


Torus Entertainment, a pro-
duction company with 38 years
experience in the entertainment
and attractions industry, is set-
tling down in Ocoee.
. Describing itself as the next
generation in immersive en-
tertainment technology, To-
rus Entertainment focuses on
high-definition video produc-
tion and immersive simulation
and training technologies. The
company specializes in docu-
mentary programming and
simulations serving theme
park venues, attractions and the
military. Torus Entertainment
has done work for many cable
television entities, including
the Discovery, History and
Travel channels, HGTV and
PBS.
Under the direction of CEO
Mac McCarney and COO
Kevin Klump, Torus opened
its offices on Maguire Road in
January and plans on complet-
ing its new production center
at a nearby location later this
year.
Currently in development,
the production center will be
home to the company's pat-
ented Toruscope-360 technol-
ogy demonstration facility, a
screening room built to enve-
lope the viewer with a 360-de-
gree seamless video screen.
"Toruscope-360 is an excep-
tional, floor-to-ceiling, high-
definition video and motion
picture process that literally
surrounds the audience with
a high-quality image of unri-
valed clarity," McCarney ex-
plained. "This tri-paneled, dis-
tortion-free image is achieved
by blending the three dividing
lines, thereby creating the illu-
sion of one, seamless 360-de-
gree moving image, unlike
other nine-panel systems that
allow clearly visible dividing
lines between each of their nine
panels."
The Toruscope-360 presen-
tation process, he added, has
been completely updated to
include the latest and most
advanced audio and visual
technologies.
The wrap-around images are
accompanied by a 15-channel
digital soundtrack, which al-
lows the audience to see and
hear Toruscope-360 produc-
tions with the highest visual
and audio fidelity available.
Further helping to create the.
illusion of reality, each mem-
ber of the audience is seated in
special modular units known as
IntelliSeats.
These innovative seats are
able to recreate the experience
of touch, smell and motion
through the use of the com-
pany's IntelliBreeze (wind),
IntelliMist (water), IntelliScent
(fragrance) and IntelliPulse
(tactile) special effects.


Mac McCarney, founder and CEO of Torus Entertain-
ment, opened offices in Ocoee last month. His company
specializes in film and video production for television and
theme parks.


This rendering shows an aerial view of Torus Entertain-
ment's Toruscope-360 screening room, which will open
in Ocoee later this year.


Torus Entertainment's slo-
gan, McCarney said, is to
"create environments of sight,
sound, touch and smell."
It all started in 1971 when
McCarney founded Cinema
Six in Omaha, Neb., and be-
gan producing film and video
documentaries and television
commercials across the coun-
try, with emphasis on large-film
formats and special venues. He
launched Torus Film Systems
in 1986 to develop the large-
film format known as Ultra
Toruscope XD. In recent years,


the company has undergone a
digital facelift with state-of-
the-art technologies to compete
in the industry as it prepared to
expand in Central Florida.
Torus is currently preparing
its production schedule for
2009-2010. Plans, McCarney
said, involve several niche
documentary productions,
including a 13-part travel se-
ries entitled "Takin' The Back
Roads."

Yep, that's me you see driving through
town on the Honda Elite 80 Scooter.
And yes, I would agree--a man of my
proportions doesn't exactly establish any
fashion trends through choosing such a
ride. And my history of losing an eye on
a mission's trip and getting run over by a
truck on my bike in a study on the safety
of bike lanes does call into question my
wisdom. But none-the-less, I feel the
necessity to cruise around on my two
wheeled "weed-eater". Why? Well,
beyond the economics of 85 MPG, I
have three reasons.
Reason #1: My God-given responsibil-
ity to care for this world. Regardless of
what I believe about global-warming, in
Genesis God entrusts His creation into
my care.
Reason #2: My ever present problem
of consumption and exploitation. I
need to curb my natural tendencies of
absolute self-fulfillment. (I think it has
something to do with that sin and self-
centered thing).
Reason #3: The cost of rice in Haiti.
A year ago, a bag of rice cost $35.00.
Today it costs $55.
Though I know my pocketbook can af-
ford me not driving a scooter, I do worry
about God's creation and my spiritual
condition. And I know for a fact, those
in Haiti surely can't afford it.

All season long, it seemed
the Olympia and Ocoee high
school varsity boys soccer play-
ers knew they were headed for
a showdown in the Class 6A
District 5 tournament final.
The two teams played to a
1-1 tie earlier this season and
dominated their other district
opponents throughout the sea-
son. Last Friday night, Olympia
claimed the top spot in front of
packed stadium at West Orange
High. A penalty kick in over-
time propelled the Titans to a
thrilling 2-1 victory.
Ocoee opened the scoring in
the first half with a goal by se-
nior midfielder Phillip Borde.
Olympia answered with a pen-
alty kick by junior midfielder
Marco Fumagalli for a 1-1 tie
that lasted the remainder of the
half.
Olympia goalie Josh Jacob-
son and his Ocoee counterpart,
Keneil Baker, were under re-
lentless pressure" in the second
half, each repelling a barrage of
shots on goal until the regula-
tion ended with the score still
locked at one goal apiece.
Two overtime sessions saw
numerous chances for each
team to score, but after 20
minutes of play, it would come
down to each team picking five
players to go one-on-one with
the opposing goalie. With play-
ers from each team huddled
together at midfield watch-

Westbrooke


Westbrooke Elementary started a unique tradition of en-
couraging high academic standards while keeping high
academic achievement fun. They held a kickball game for
all the 5th-graders who made the honor roll during the
2nd grading period. The kickball contest was the honor
roll students versus 5th-grade teachers Mr. Foster, Ms.
Sick, Mr. Gorham and Ms. Pace, in addition to Mr. Hurst,
Mrs. Havard, Ms. Simmons, Ms. Gibbs, Mr. Mazzola and
parents Mr. Jamieson, Mrs. Baum and Mrs. Golden. The
teachers edged out the honor students to win the match.
Above, 5th-graders wait their turn to take on the teachers
as Coach Mazzola shows proper kickball form.

Sunset Park,


Sunset Park Elementary students Jaden Christopher-
Meunch and Jelianie Santiago were honored recently by
the Southwest Learning Community. These 5th-graders

ments and academic endeavors. As a Rising Star, the stu-
dents received a certificate and a medallion from South-

game Evolver as part of their math class at LMS


Math is a blast
Students at Lakeview Middle
School are using new technol-
ogy to learn math. Tabula Dig-
ita, a company that develops
educational games for students
nationwide, is responsible for a
game called Evolver, which is
popular with LMS students.
The video game leads stu-
dents to engage in a series
of missions to reinforce pre-
algebra and algebra concepts.
Students can play against
each other as individuals or as
a team. Many students enjoy
the program because they are
playing a challenging game
and the only way to be a bet-
ter player is to be a better math


student.
To make the challenge even
more interesting, students
are able to compete' against
students in other states. Ms.
Anderson, an 8th-grade math
teacher at LMS, regularly sets
up matches between her stu-
dents and those in New York
and Texas. Over the winter
holiday, Tabula Digita offered
a contest awarding a $250 gift
certificate to the school that
logged the most points during
the two-week period.
By the end of the winter
break, the students of Lakev-
iew Middle won the competi-
tion for the 10-state Southeast
region.


The 3 Thornebrooke Elementary school-level finalists in
the Modern Woodmen Oration Contest held recently in the

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all
circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ
I Thessalonians 5: 16-18

Would it surprise you to know that God's will for you
is to be joyful always? Based on this verse it is crys-
tal clear that God intends for you to have deep pro-
found joy. Why then is there so much about suffering,
discipline and struggle in the Christian walk?
On the surface, it seems like a "Don't worry, be
happy" mentality-Life is going to be hard but God
wants you to be happy anyway: Gut it up; tighten
your belt,,smile like a good soldier!!! God's not after
your happiness, only your holiness. Many a believer
through the centuries (including myself) have taken
that stance toward life and found it missing some-
thing.
Thankfully, that's not the way it really works. Let's
go back to our chief example: Jesus. In Hebrews, we
read that we should "fix our eyes on Jesus...who for

the joy set before Him endured the cross..." (Heb
12:2) Sounds like a little bit of delayed gratification.
He didn't suffer miserably in some kind of masoch-
istic glee-it was hard and horrible. But, He knew
the payoff and that gave Him joy in it.
What if this verse is giving us the way to get there?
I've known a few people that have genuinely tried to
pray continually-through the dishes and the com-
motion of life-people that find something to thank
God for in everything from severed fingers to new
responsibilities. Ive had moments when it has clicked
for me too and I am truly joyful-not just a little
happy, but "got the giggles, ROFLOL" gleeful. Tru-
ly, "In His presence IS the fullness ofjoy." (Ps 16:11)
I can't say that I can do it all the time, but when it
happens, I can truly see how much joy it gives. I can
feel how much joy it gives to Him too. It's not easy.
It's worth it. It makes everything else easy.

CFCA welcomes 3 new administrators -Messiah-


Central Florida Christian
Academy has three new ad-
ministrators: Edward E. Gam-
ble, headmaster; Dr. Barbara
Johnson, Lower School prin-
cipal and director of instruc-
tion; and Tim Euler, Upper
School principal.
A native of Memphis, Head-
master Gamble is a graduate
of the University of Memphis,
where he earned his bachelor's
and master's degrees.
He began his career in
Christian education in Mem-
phis, teaching science in a
Christian school and later
serving as headmaster. In
1988, he accepted the leader-
ship of a school in Mississippi
and then was called in 1991
to Orlando to lead The First
Academy, a ministry of First
Baptist Orlando. By 2002, the
academy had grown to more
than 900 students.
In 2003, he accepted the
call to become the first full-
time director of the Southern
Baptist Association of Chris-
tian Schools (SBACS).
A dynamic speaker for
churches, schools, ministry
and educational conferenc-
es, fund-raising events and
youth and parent assemblies,
Gamble is also an experi-
enced school consultant. He
has helped and taught school
leaders and boards on many
subjects, including finance
and multi-year budgeting, de-
velopment and fund-raising,
school assessment, financial
aid/scholarship programs,
governance issues, church-
school relations, faculty de-
velopment and strategic plan-
ning.
Gamble is a lifelong South-
ern Baptist, a Southern Baptist
minister and an adjunct pro-
fessor at Palm Beach Atlantic
University's Orlando campus.
He has served on numerous
boards and committees, in-
cluding Southern Association
of Colleges and Schools, Boy
Scouts of America, SBACS,
Association of Christian
Schools International, B.R.
Chamberlain Foundation for
Public Enrichment and The
First Orlando Foundation.
He and his wife, Wanda,
have three grown children.
They are members of First
Baptist Church Central Flor-
ida.
Johnson, Lower School
principal and director of in-
struction, has been in educa-
tion for more than 35 years.
While in high school, she
volunteered to tutor at a chil-
dren's orphanage and helped


TIM EULER
in a local Headstart program.
She earned a bachelor's
degree in education from Mi-
ami University in Ohio and
received her master's degree
in education from Portland
State University. Her educa-
tional career includes teach-
ing at elementary schools in
Ohio, California, Oregon and
Florida and experience in non-
graded primary classes, year-
round education and "open
schools."
Her move to Florida precip-
itated her pursuit of a doctor-
ate in educational leadership
at the University of Central
Florida. While a grad stu-
dent there, she worked as


a kindergarten teacher and
instructional supervisor for
kindergarten through grade
six at The First Academy. In
TFA's fourth year, she became
the Lower School principal, a
position she held for 10 years
before becoming the director
of instruction and staff devel-
opment. She concluded her
time at the academy as the
high school principal.
Johnson has served as presi-
dent of Central Florida Asso-
ciation of Nonpublic Schools,
a director in Florida Associa-
tion of Academic Non-public
Schools, a chaperone for the
1997 Children's Summit in
Paris, a member of SACS
accreditation teams and an
adjunct professor. She con-
tinues to chair accreditation
teams for SACS, to consult
with schools and to teach
courses in the MAT program
at Columbia International
University.
Johnson lives in Southwest
Orlando with her husband,
Gary. Her son, Kirk, is an at-
torney, and her daughter, Erin,
is a professional entertainer.
Both live in Orlando.
Euler, Upper School prin-
cipal, has been in education
for nine years. Prior to being
in the classroom, he spent
four years coaching varsity
volleyball and baseball. His
teaching experience includes
many government and history
courses.
Euler started his career in
Northern Michigan and then
moved to Florida to teach and
coach at The First Academy.
After three years, he moved to
Texas to teach at Prestonwood
Christian Academy.
After a year in the class-
room, he became Upper
School administrator. After
serving in that position for
four years, he received the
call from CFCA.
Euler described his plans
for CFCA: "I believe the more
opportunities you give young
men and women to experience
real-life situations, the more
successful they will be in the
years after high school gradu-
ation. I want CFCA to be a
training ground for Christian
lawyers, doctors, business
professionals, pastors and
politicians."
He hopes to accomplish that
goal by beginning an active
internship program.
Euler lives in Ocoee with
his wife, Diana, and two chil-
dren, Timmy, 8, and Bryce, 4.
He coaches Little League in
his community.

Tildenville Elementary


Tildenville Elementary held its first spelling bee recently. The winner of the contest was Jonathan Nieto, a 5th-grader
from Mrs. Odro's class. His classmate, Joshua DeLaPena was the runner-up. Nieto will now compete in the countywide
spelling bee. TES would like to thank the volunteers from the Florida Turnpike and the ADDitions for serving as judges
for the bee. Congratulations go to all the students who participated and practiced hard for the competition.


Central Florida Prep


Central Florida Prep celebrated its annual International Event on Jan. 23 in association with Walt Disney World's EP-
COT Center The student body studied more than 20 different countries, and cast members from EPCOT visited CFP
to add flavor to the event. The school welcomed representatives from Germany, China, Japan, Canada and Mexico
who dressed in native costumes and answered a variety of questions from students in the Montessori, elementary and
middle-school grades. Students learned about different foods, customs, hobbies and languages.


Ocoee High
.. m~


Ocoee High senior Vu Nguyen recently donated blood to
Florida's Blood Centers. More than 180 students and staff
members signed up to donate a pint to help others. This is
the 3rd visit by FBC to OHS and was a great opportunity
for Ocoee Knights to give back to the community.


Ocoee High School would like to recognize and con-
gratulate its Senior Knights of the Round Table for the
1st semester Matthew Bumett, Jason McLean, Cam-
eron Warren and Lidia Andrade. Pictured with 2 of these
Knights, Burnett (left) and Jason McLean, is Laura Vittum,
representing the Winter Garden Elks Lodge 2165. Vittum
is the scholarship chairperson and the driving force behind
the scholarship program that the Elks Lodge offers for se-
niors at Ocoee High. Each recipient receives a plaque and
a check for $50. The students also will be among 8 finalists
at the end of the year for a $1,000 scholarship.


Ocoee High School's senior class is excited that 2009 is
finally here. Seniors had the chance, literally, to line up on
the football field as the Class of 2009. This picture will
be hung on the wall at school along with the 3 previous
classes from OHS, following a tradition that started with
the inaugural Class of 2006. The Class of 2009 has the
unique honor of being the 1st class to spend all 4 years of
high school at OHS.

Holy Family


Katrina Rodriguez savors some quality time with her
daughter, Gabriella, at Holy Family Catholic School's in-
augural Mother/Daughter Tea fund-raiser More than 200
mothers and daughters enjoyed the evening together in
the new Holy Family Parish Life Center. Looking refined
in lovely dresses, girls from grades pre-K through 8 joined
their moms in sipping tea as they dined on tea sandwich-
es, mini-quiches, scones and cookies from Cathee Brady
Catering and Dolce Bakery.
