nifer Porter-Smith of Ocoee, had the chance to travel to
Tallahassee last week to meet Gov., Charlie Crist and to
receive her award as one of 2 state winners in the gover-
nor's Black History Month Essay Contest. A 5th-grader at

ey," said Mayor John Rees.
City Manager Michael Boll-
hoefer agreed: "Maxey has a
historical significance, it has
improved its school grades,
and there would be transpor-
tation concerns for those stu-
dents."
At a workshop session last
week, the School Board di-
rected Blocker to develop a
report on the possible closing
of up to eight small elementa-
ry schools, including Maxey.
The board could make a deci-
sion in the coming weeks as it
struggles to find ways t6 save
money amid the economic re-
cession. .
District 3 Commissioner
Harold Bohler told the com-
mission he had recently been
.told by Blocker that Maxey
had a good chance of surviv-


ing because of its history,. but
much would depend on how
strongly the community ral-
lied behind the school.
"It's this school today, but it
might be any other school to-
morrow," Bouler warned.
A community meeting,
Bouler announced, was set for
this Wednesday, Feb. 18, at 6
p.m. at the school.
Maxey Elementary Prin-
cipal Belinda Davis told The
West Orange Times she is re-
maining optimistic that her
school will be spared.
"I think our chances'of sur-
viving are wonderful," Davis
said. "We are a value to the
community, and our students
should have equal opportunity
to go to school and learn in

Oakland considers joining Lake Apopka Natural Gas


By Amy Quesinberry


Oakland residents who have long been using propane
gas might have another choice if the Town Commission
decides to pursue a franchise agreement with Lake
Apopka Natural Gas District. A representative
provided information to the elected officials at last
Tuesday's regular meeting and said matter-of-factly,
"We're offering money."
Everett Holmes Jr., marketing executive for
LANGD, said the gas company has received calls from
Oakland residents who are currently using propane and
are interested in making the switch to natural gas. This
is the only municipality in West Orange County not
currently with the gas district, said Holmes.
If the town enters into a franchise agreement with
LANGD, it will receive a percentage of the monthly
fees paid by Oakland residents.
Mayor Kathy Stark said she was in favor of the


idea: "I like offering green choices to residents, and I
like getting money."
According to LANGD, natural gas produces less
greenhouse gases, has a smaller carbon footprint,
is the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels and is
economical.
Holmes said propane gas is more than $2 a gallon,
whereas natural gas costs less than $1.
Holmes said the gas district could provide a mail-out
survey to all residents to see if there's an interest.
"The key with natural gas is that it's always there,
just like your water or electricity," Holmes said. "You
don't have to have something delivered or, if you're
cooking, you don't have to make sure you have enough
propane gas."
If Oakland signs on for natural gas, the company
would have to install lines in the town. Holmes said
Lake Apopka Natural Gas District's nearby gas lines
currently run from West Colonial Drive up Oakland


Avenue, ending near the Oakland Nature Preserve,
on the west side. To the east, the lines stop just past
Oakland Park, where LANGD will supply services to
the residential community.
On another matter, the commission received an
update on the town's ongoing loss of revenue due
to ZIP Code discrepancies from Administrative
Assistant Valerie Nedd. She said she spent many hours
reorganizing the town's nearly 900 street and postal
box addresses. Oakland has been losing money because
of confusion over ZIP Codes between residents living
in the newer subdivisions and those in old Oakland.
According to Nedd, this affects the Community
Service Tax revenue. Although she couldn't say
how much the town has lost, she did tell The West
Orange Times last Friday that the Florida Department
of Revenue sent Oakland approximately $23,000

customers and Muscular Dystrophy Assoc.


Sailormen Inc. Popeyes Loui-
siana Kitchen is offering cus-
tomers "Appetite for a Cure"
coupon cards that provide them
with valuable discounts while
assisting the worldwide research
program of the Muscular Dys-
trophy Association.
As they have in previous years,
participating Popeyes outlets are
selling coupon cards worth $30
for only $1 now through March
15. Coupons are good for free
drinks and discounts on future
purchases.


Sailormen Inc. CEO Bob
Berg said coupon card sales of-
fer a double benefit.
"In tough economic times like
these, the people in the com-
munities where we do business
need all the breaks they can
get," said Berg.
"At the same time, we un-
derstand that MDA, like many
non-profits, is facing daunting
challenges today to maintain
its unparalleled delivery of ser-
vices. We're unwavering in our
commitment to support both


these needs."
MDA President and CEO
Jerry Weinberg said Sailormen
Inc.'s help comes at a critical
time.
"After decades of research,
potential treatments for some
of our diseases are about to go
into human clinical trials. This
extremely expensive process
needs all the impetus we can
provide," said Weinberg.
"Sailormen Inc.'s help at this
time is directly contributing to
saving lives."

is a subject we all think about...but few of us actually
do anything about it. The Dignity Memorial providers
of Woodlawn Memorial recognize how difficult this
process can be. With this appointment we will explain
what planning ahead is. We believe that no one should
be uninformed and unprepared on the day that they
experience the loss of a loved one.

Red Bandana BBQ returns Maxey


The West
Orange Chamber
will roast former
Commissioner
Teresa Jacobs.

The West Orange Chamber of
Commerce is resurrecting the
Red Bandana BBQ, but with a
new twist. Join the Chamber as
members "roast" former Orange
County District 1 Commission-
er Teresa Jacobs on Thursday,
March 5, at 6 p.m. at Wild West,
located at 2151 Ocoee Apopka
Road, Ocoee.
To be an individual subject of
a roast is a great honor, said Stina
D'Uva, WOCC president, and
the Chamber and "roasters" are
planning some outlandishly true
(and maybe not-so-true) heart-
warming stories and tributes in
honor of Jacobs' past eight years
of service to Orange County. Ja-
cobs has agreed to take the jokes
in good faith, showing her good
nature; and she knows she will be
surrounded by friends, fans and
well-wishers, who in turn will
receive some of the same treat-


ment when the table turns and
the commissioner will be doing
some roasting of her own.
Scott Maxwell, Orlando
Sentinel columnist, will be the
roastmaster during the presen-
tation and will lead his fellow
roasters through a grand party.
Joining Maxwell on this notable
panel are former Orange County
Public School Board Chairman
Karen Ardaman; Supervisor
of Elections Bill Cowles; Bud
Hedinger, host of Bud Hedinger
Live! on 540 WFLA Radio; Rich
Maladecki, president of CFHLA;
and Chamber President D'Uva.
"I've known Teresa for many'
years, going back to the twins
and triplets club of Greater Or-
lando Mothers of Twins and
Triplets," said D'Uva. "Teresa
served this county well, and I
am pleased that the Chamber has
planned this wonderful tribute
to her."

Davis said she expected a
strong turnout at Wednesday's
meeting and would be counting
on continued support from city
leaders and citizens.
In another matter, the City
Commission passed an ordi-
nance giving downtown busi-
ness owners a $2,000 break on
parking fees owed to the city.
In 2007, Winter Garden ad-
opted a policy charging down-
town businesses $7,000 as an
alternative to meeting the city's
requirements for providing on-
site parking spaces. Revenues
generated by the parking fee
have been placed in a fund in-
tended to provide for new park-
ing facilities in the downtown
area.
Since the fund's creation,
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 arid construction for a typi-
cal parking space, resulting in
each business owing $5,000.
The new ordinance also al-
lows Bollhoefer to negotiate
with business owners on mak-
ing the parking fees in install-
ment payments, provided that at
least 25 percent be paid prior to
occupancy. The prior ordinance

Maxey Elementary deserves to stay open


Rumors have been circulating about
the possible closing of Maxey Elemen-
tary School in Winter Garden. The Or-
ange County School Board is desperate-
ly looking for ways to trim dollars from
its dwindling budget, and it appears that
this local school with its rich history
- could be on the chopping block.
It would be a great loss to the com-
munity to close a school such as Maxey.
It has such dedicated teachers and staff
and has received a C state grade for the
last two years and an A prior to that.
This Title I school is the recipient of
many grants and donations and has an
outstanding HeadStart program with 65
children enrolled.
A school in east Winter Garden can
be traced back to 1923, when the Win-
ter Garden School was built on Cen-
ter Street for the area's black students.
Grades were added each year, and
eventually it became Winter Garden Ju-
nior High School. The growing school
moved to Maple Street where Maxey
Elementary now stands and was re-
named Charles R. Drew High, serving'
black students in grades one through
12. In 1965, the school was split, and
Maxey Elementary remained on the
Maple Street campus and Drew High


moved to the property now occupied by
Westside Tech on Story Road in Winter
Garden.
If Maxey is boarded up, where will
these 314 students go for their educa-
tion and how will they get there? Will
they attend Dillard Street Elementary
or Ocoee Elementary both of which
are overcrowded as it is? Will Orange
County Public Schools pay for the ad-
ditional busing that will be required?
What will become of the teachers, the
equipment, the building, the Maxey
Wildcat pride? What does that do to
these students' sense of belonging?
A community meeting was set for this
Wednesday, Feb. 18, and we're hoping
that many residents had planned to at-
tend.
This wonderful school with such a
deep history needs our help. It might
just take the support of a whole village
to keep the school that has educated
Winter Garden children for 44 years.
We hope the School Board also will
handle this situation carefully and con-
sider other economical solutions first.
Maxey is an excellent example of a
community school and deserves to re-
main as an educational foundation for
Winter Garden children.


County Commissioner Brummer's open letter to Gov. Crist


The following is an open letter from Commis-
sioner Fred Brummer to Gov. Charlie Crist.
Dear Gov. Crist:
There has been a dreadful announcement. The
announcement came from the Department of
Health. You are the only official that can prevent
a cataclysm in homeownership. The purpose
of this letter is to pray that you will avert this
tragedy and set thousands of homeowners' and
prospective homebuyers' minds at ease.
The State Surgeon General of the Florida
Department of Health, Dr. Ana M. Viamonte
Ros, has directed her staff to issue new rules
for septic systems. The announcement is that
new Department of Health rules would require
Performance Based Treatment Systems in the
Wekiva Study Area upon the sale of a home.
Such a rule is without legislative direction.
Senate Bill 1214 of the 2004 legislative session
clearly requires that any rule implementation
by the department be appropriate. There is-no
indication that the proposed rule is appropriate
or required.
Such a rule is without scientific support. The
report of Department of Health required by SB
1214 has not withstood peer review for adequa-
cy, appropriateness or scientific method.
Such a rule is without economic reason. Per-
formance Based Treatment Systems have sub-


stantial additional capital cost over a standard
system. Performance Based Treatment Systems
have substantial annual maintenance costs.
The small or non-existent additional benefit to
the environment of these Performance Based
Treatment Systems compared to standard onsite
wastewater treatment systems makes imposition
of such a rule incomprehensible.
Such a rule is without economic justice. A
portion of the Wekiva Study Area has some
of the greatest concentrations of foreclosures
that exist in Orange County. Homeowners all
throughout the Wekiva Study Area are con-
cerned about job loss and their ability to con-
tinue to live in their current residence. The state
of Florida, as you are aware, is not in a position
to pay the cost of such a mandate.
Would you please reassure the residents of the
Wekiva Study Area by announcing that no such
rule will be imposed in the near future?
Governor, efforts to further reduce nitrogen
in the Wekiva River and its contributing springs
are of a high priority to the residents of the
Wekiva Study Area. Imposition of high cost and
ineffective methods would be very, damaging
to the cause. Should you have any questions
about this letter, please call me.

Frederick C. Brummer
Orange County Commissioner

Letters to the editor


Ocoee High students address environmental concerns

(Editor's note: Dr. Darlene Wolfe of Ocoee High School asked her environmen-
tal science students to consider environmental problems they were interested in,
research them and write a letter to newspapers. Here are four of the letters we
chose to print out of the submissions from the class.)

Education


Editor:
If we, the children, are the future, then ours
is.a future of hopelessness, helplessness and
horror. If we, the children, are to support you
later in life, then yours is a life of bitterness,
balefulness and boredom.
It is seemingly believed by the adult genera-
tions that whatever damage is done now can just
be solved by the younger generations. News
flash: That strategy hasn't worked so far! We,
the children, are not miracle workers we can-
not recreate nonrenewable resources that have
been used up, and we cannot bear the burden of
the world upon our shoulders and successfully
carry the nation, much less the world, without
the proper education and resources.
Of course, we hear it all the time: The econ-
omy simply is not in any shape to strengthen
the schools. Alas, we, the children, are taught


through actions (immediate budget cuts when-
ever the economy goes sour) that our education
is simply not as important as we are told through
words. And if the economy cannot provide us
with the tools we need to learn, then how can we
be expected to bail out the economy at all?
It is a vicious cycle one-that must stop if
we wish to survive as a nation and as a world.
Is education not as important as the next Su-
per Bowl? It seems so acceptable to shell out
thousands of dollars for material items, but a
tax increase for a better education system? God
forbid. I ask you: If we, the children, are to raise
this nation high if we, the children, are the
future then why is our.education so readily
sacrificed on the altar of your greed and selfish
indulgences?

Emily Badore


Energy


Editor:
Our group of 12th-grade students is studying
the effects of the economy on the environment.
Our concern is how the Bush administration
could afford to bail out car companies and bank-
ers but refused to fix environmental problems.
Our new Obama administration needs our en-
vironmental support. He has a plan to spend
billions of dollars on components .of technol-
ogy that will repair much of the damage to our
environment and the atmosphere. We have and
can create the products to stop mote of the dam-
age to our environment. We can make most gas
products from something that we have every
day: water and biofuels.
For example, Denny Klein believes he, has
produced the new energy source he called HHO
water gas. Using the process of electrolysis, his
electrolyzer breaks the water apart so the gas
that came out of water is flammable hydrogen
and oxygen, so the hydrogen can burn.
' Another way to generate electricity is with
solar energy or a wind machine, which is free.


Using hydroelectric energy.-to generate power
has been proven to work more cleanly than
burning fossil fuels. People are working on
breaking down cellulose so we can use dead
plant material to create alcohols safely. Corn
then can be left as a food crop and not cause
environmental damage through the fermenta-
tion to ethanol process.
We have all the resources. We just refuse to
use them because our people and the past ad-
ministration refused to put more effort toward
solving the environmental problems that are
getting worse every day. We have the knowl-
edge to produce solutions of our own and create
things that will make our environment a better
place for living so we seniors in high school can
look forward to a safe, healthy lifestyle when
we become senior citizens.

Pollution


Editor:
Did you know that humans spend 80-90
percent of their lives indoors? We eat, sleep,
work and relax inside a closed facility, building,
home, etc. Many people concern themselves
with outdoor pollution, but the California Air
Resource Board estimates that indoor pollu-
tion is 25-62 percent higher than outdoor pol-
lution.
Indoor pollution is caused by various things
such as tobacco smoke, cooking, heating ap-
pliances, vapors from building materials, paint
and furniture. Also contributing are high tem-
perature, humidity, coal, wood and wet/damp
carpets. Much of this pollution can be prevented


just by taking a few precautions.
For example, use systems that circulate the
air throughout one's indoor surroundings. Items
such as gas, oil, coal, wood, etc. can be stored
outside or in a garage. Pay close attention to
the products that might be too hazardous due to
toxic chemicals. Switch to safer, more natural,
products. It's also as simple as turning down
the air and opening the windows.
As we learned from the natural-occurring gas
radon, indoor air pollution affects us and every-
one around us in the short-term and long-term
effects range from dizziness to fatalities.

Elizabeth Rodriguez


The future


Editor:
Ocean pollution greatly affects our environ-
ment. Did you know that more than 60 million
gallons of oil are dumped in our oceans on pur-
pose each year? Also, the sewage and garbage
put into the ocean suffocate fish, destroy coral
reefs and "glue" bird feathers together. Pos-
sibly more important is that oil can block out
sunlight, which makes photosynthesis harder
for plants and plankton. They are 60 percent of
our major source of oxygen on earth.
There are many ways to minimize the pol-
lution spread throughout our world today. We
need to spread the word. We need to inform the
people about what is going on. People deserve


to know the consequences of their actions. It is
our right as human beings to stand up for what
we believe in. We can ask all people to cooper-
ate with us in making our world better today so
we can have a better tomorrow.
We only have one life and one world. When
this life is over, you leave your children to suffer
the consequence of your lack of action. That is
why we should take matters into our own-hands
and help each other. When this world is gone,
where will we go? Ask yourself that question

Submit nominees for Agriculture
Environmental Leadership Awards
Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles Bronson announced the deadline of April 1 for sub-
mitting nominations for the commissioner's 2009 Agriculture
Environmental Leadership Awards.
Now in its 16th year, the awards recognize environmentally
innovative farming practices among the state's growers and
ranchers.
"We know that there are numerous agricultural operations
that are doing remarkable things to preserve and protect the
environment," Bronson said. "We want to know who they are
so we can recognize them."
The program honors agricultural producers who demonstrate a
dedication to preserving the environment and conserving natural
resources while helping ensure a continuing supply of food and
fiber. Since its inception, the awards program has recognized
cattle, dairy, fruit and vegetable, small grain, sod, nursery, tropi-
cal fish, citrus and timber producers.
The selection process begins with a nomination form. Nomi-
nees then are judged by an independent committee that includes
representatives from major agricultural groups, environmental
organizations and government agencies.
To obtain a nomination form or to receive more information
about the program, visit www.florida-agriculture.com/agenvi-
ronmental/index.htm or call 850-488-3731.

State helps businesses go green
With the nation's challenging economic situation increasing
the need to cut costs, the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection's (DEP) Florida Pollution Prevention Program (P2)
is helping businesses find ways to maximize profits, improve
sustainability and protect the environment by going green.
DEP's non-regulatory P2 program offers free, confidential as-
sistance to help businesses create an environmentally conscious
business blueprint.
"With the cost of products and services on the rise, DEP's P2
program encourages companies to use this free resource and go
green without losing green," said Deas Bohn, DEP director of
sustainable initiatives. "Learning strategies that allow companies
to protect employee health, safety and the environment, while
simultaneously reducing waste, energy and water use simply
makes good business sense."
DEP's P2 program is designed to stop pollution at its source by
providing free assistance to industries and manufacturers, com-
mercial businesses, government, military facilities, schools and
organizations. Over the past 10 years, the P2 program's profes-
sional engineers have helped more than 500 Florida companies
reduce waste and lower costs through individual consultations,
on-site surveys and recommendations tailored specifically to
each facility's needs. P2 offers businesses of all sizes numerous
options, from simple changes to complex overhauls, all of which
are 100 percent voluntary.
"Every Florida business, large or small, can contact the P2
program, and we will send a professional engineer to conduct
a custom assessment for free," added Bohn. "After a thor-
ough review, the company will be presented with numerous
ways to decrease pollution but increase its bottom line in
this economy, every tip can help."

Oakland Police Officer Steven Valente (center) was select-
ed as the 2008 Officer of the Year in the town. With him are
Mayor Kathy Stark and Police Chief Tim Driscoll.

Oakland PD recognizes

officers for work in 2008


By.Amy Quesinberry

Oakland Police Chief Tim
Driscoll stood before a crowd
at last Tuesday's Town Com-
mission meeting to present cer-
tificates to officers to recognize
them for their outstanding work
in 2008. Those honored were of-
ficers Peter Graham and Chris
Creegan as Officers of the Sec-
ond Half, Detective John Peek
as Reserve Officer of the Year
and Officer Steven Valente as
Officer of the Year.
Their names will also be
.added to plaques that hang in
the police station.
Driscoll read each of the cer-
tificates, which described why
the officers were chosen.
A six-year member of the
agency, Valente's focus has al-
ways been on developing ways
to give back to the community.
He has organized programs such
as the File of Life and Thanks-
giving and Christmas baskets.
,In 2008, Officer Valente
attended crisis intervention
training, which trains officers
to use unique techniques when
addressing people with mental
health disorders. And now, as
the OPD's CIT coordinator, Va-
lente makes sure other officers
are properly trained in this area
as well.
In addition to his regular pa-
trol duties, the officer has also
assisted with organizing lo-
cal Neighborhood Watch pro-
grams.
Driscoll said: "It is because
of his relentless commitment to
the community policing concept
that the Oakland Police depart-
ment is honored to recognize
Officer Steven Valente as Of-
ficer of the Year 2008."


Detective Peek has been a
member of the Oakland Police
Department Reserve Force since
June 2006. With more than 20
years of experience in law en-
forcement, his role in Oakland
has been primarily to assist with
investigations.
In the first half of 2008, Peek
served in the Middle East on an
assignment assisting and train-
ing foreign officers to combat
terrorism. Upon his return to
the OPD in June, he was again
assigned to assist Oakland's de-
tective. In August, he assumed
the role of detective when the
full-time position had been va-
cated.
Peek served in both a vol-
unteer and part-time capac-
ity throughout the rest of the
year, and many new cases were
cleared. As a reserve officer, he
donated as much as 30 hours
each week investigating crime.
"Still serving as a part-time
officer with the agency today,"
Chief Driscoll said, "Detective
Peek has proved to be a huge as-
set to the department and com-
munity."
In recognizing the two hon-
ored officers for the second
half of 2008, Driscoll said:
"The Oakland Police Depart-
ment periodically goes through
personnel shortages, as many
small agencies do, It is during
these times that new officers are

called upon to fill huge gaps as
they are asked to assume greater
roles within the agency."
Graham has served the OPD
as a reserve officer for approxi-
mately 10 years. Last August,
he accepted a full-time patrol
officer position and was' placed
on the midnight shift to fill a
vacated position. From Sep-
tember to December, he made.
more than 40 cases, clearing 19
of them by arrest.
Creegan was hired last June
as a reserve officer. He logged
more than 200 hours of work
from Oct. 1 through the end of
the year, and during this time
he made 11 cases, clearing four
by arrest, and wrote more than
40 citations. As a reserve offi-
cer, this was completed with no
hourly wage.
"It is because of the efforts
provided by these two officers,"
Driscoll said, that they were se-
lected for the honor.


Over the Christmas holidays, Christie,
the boys and I visited my wife's
family in Iowa. Upon arrival our
whole list of activities began with a
drive over to Christie's grandmother's
house for the large family gathering.
As we drove into her small town, my
mother-in-law pointed out a billboard
advertising a new church start. It pic-
tured a young family dressed causally,
smiling with a strong welcoming and
accepting message.
What surprised me was my response.
Though the billboard conveyed a sim-
ilar message we try to communicate, I
all of sudden got sick to my stomach.
I'began to feel uncomfortable with
the presentation of our image over the
reality of who we are. So, let me set
the record straight.
* We do welcome new people
* Our services and messages are
relevant and creative
* We do have good children's, youth,
and small group ministries
* And our greatest asset is our rela-
tionship with each other
But you also need to realize...
* We are ethnically, economically
and experientially diverse. We don't
all come from the same background
and so relationships have to be
intentional.
* We are messy and don't cover it
very well. Brokenness and dysfunc-
tion flavor our marriages, families,
and personal lives.
* We don't have everything figured
out. Though God has given us.
great resources like His Word, other
believers, and His Holy Spirit, we
still recognize we are on a journey
of discovery and not arriving at a
destination.
* We often disappoint. In fact, I
often remind people there are only
two promises I can make. First, the
church will disappoint you. And
secondly, I will disappoint you. You
can count on it.
I'm still trying to figure out how to
put this on a billboard. But before
I try, I still think we need to further
clarify our presentation. Quite pos-
sibly our message may need to be
more about an opportunity to worship
and serve than merely about finding
ourselves or a place to belong.

Parent paints mural at Ocoee school
Have you seen the Westbrooke Elementary School's clinic lately? Pam Shawron, a 4th-
grade parent and PTA member, completed an colorful mural on one wall of the clinic..
Now, ailing Wildcats and Miss Sally (the school nurse) will no longer be in a stark room.
Although the animals in the picture are sick (see the wildcat with the thermometer, mon-
key with a BandAid and snake with an ice pack), they are hanging in there and sure to get
better. The Westbrooke PTA is very grateful to Shawron for both her time and creativity.

U.S. Army Staff Sgt. William Castillo (center) and his family recently were honored and
surprised during halftime at an Orlando Magic game to learn they will be the recipients of
a mortgage-free new home provided by Building Homes for Heroes and funds raised at
a golf tournament organized by the Windermere Country Club Foundation. The Castillo
family is surrounded by well wishers, including members of the WCC Foundation.

Windermere Country Club Foundation tourney
will help build a home for Iraq War veteran


The Windermere Country
Club Foundation (WCCF) is
planning a golf tournament
to benefit Building Homes
for Heroes, a national organi-
zation that provides funds to
build mortgage-free homes for
veterans.
. The WCCF and Building
Homes for Heroes are joining
forces to transform swinging
golf clubs into swinging ham-
mers to build a home for an
Iraq War veteran.
The WCCF's charity golf
tournament is planned for
Tuesday, April 28, at Win-
dermere Country Club. The
event will give local golfers a
chance to play golf and help
U.S. Army Staff Sgt. William
Castillo and his family.
For an entry form, go to
www.ahomeforahero.org or
call 407-876-1112, Ext. 211.
Staff Sgt. Castillo enlisted
in the U.S. Army in 2003
motivated by the attacks on
Sept. 11, 2001. He completed
his first tour of duty in Iraq in
2005 and re-enlisted. Castillo
returned for a second tour in
2007, and while on a mission
to rescue Marines, his Hum-
vee was struck by an IED,
leaving him with five gunshot
wounds. He was struggling to
get back to the burning truck
to help his comrades when a
missile cut through the vehicle


and severed his left leg at the
knee. He was the lone survivor
of the attack and was awarded
the Purple Heart.
The real fight started at
Walter Reed Medical Center
a few days later when Cas-
tillo began a recovery plan to
regain his strength and once
again become a solid husband
and dad.
A fourth child came this
January, and Castillo is still
on hard at work on his recov-
ery. But getting out of rental
housing would be a real step
up for this hero and his fam-
ily a move to make it on
their own.
Castillo and his family now
reside in ,Florida. They were
surprised Sunday at halftime
during the Orlando Magic-New
Jersey Nets basketball game at
the Amway Arena to learn they
will soon have a home of their
own thanks to the generosity
of the WCCF and Building
Homes for Heroes.
"The memory of 9/11 mo-
tivated me to do more for our
country," said Andy Pujol,
president and CEO of Build-
ing Homes for Heroes.
"Seeing our nation's youth
return home from war missing
limbs, enduring the effects of
severe bums and blindness and
more, moved me to help with
their healing.


"Perhaps the greatest civilian
service to country is helping a
military family along the diffi-
cult road to recovery," said Pu-
jol. "For me and many others,
easing the healing process is
an inspiration rich in gratitude
and appreciation for those who
have sacrificed so much."
"Windermere wants to be
more than just a golf club,"
said Joe Gustafson, chairman
of the WCCF. "
"If we can play the game we
love to help a deserving vet and
his family, we're happy to do
it. This is the second straight
year for this program, and we
intend -to go on using golf to
properly welcome veterans to
the home they have defended
for us one vet at a time."
"My family and I are so
blessed to live in this great
country," said Castillo. "For
my wife and I to be able to have
a home to call our own, to raise
our children in it's really all
any mom and dad could ever
ask for. It would be an Ameri-
can dream come true."
WCCF invites all area golf-
ers to participate in the tour-
nament and live and silent
auctions. Sponsorships are
available, and donations are ac-
cepted. For more information
on Building Home for Heroes,
go to www.BuildingHomesfor-
Heroes.com.


A check for Rotary
At last week's Windermere Rotary meeting, Richard Irwin
(left), the CEO and president of Health Central medical
center, presented a $5,000 check to Bryan Sutton, Rotary
president, for sponsorship of the club's annual Festival of
the Lakes to be held April 4 and 5. In addition to the presen-
tation, the Rotary welcomed Julia Strimple (past president)
as the guest speaker. She spoke about family history and
international relations, along with a photo documentary of
a recent .trip to Australia.

Ocoee to host African folklore


In celebration of Black History Month and the African roots
of African-American life and culture, the Ocoee Human Rela-
tions Diversity Board will present Orisirisi Drum Sermons, a
joyous celebration of music produced and directed by Winter
Garden residents Don and Tutu Harrell of Orisirisi African
Folklore.
The program, which will include students from Ocoee Middle
School's Theatre Arts and Music Departments, will be held this
Thursday, Feb. 19, at OMS at 7 p.m.
The community is invited to attend this free performance
that will include stories from the far corners of the African
continent, spirited drumming, dance and song and a healthy
dose of the African tradition of audience participation.
The Ocoee Middle students are participating this week in
a three-day arts-in-education residency by the Harrells and
through an audition process were selected as drummers, danc-,
ers and African choral accompaniment.
The Harrells, who presented 12,000 shows at Epcot over
an eight-year period, formed Orisirisi African Folklore with
the expressed purpose of sharing the beauty and poignancy
of African life and culture. Since its inception, the company
has performed nationwide for a large number of occasions
and in many different settings, including primary and second-
ary schools, colleges, libraries, museums, festivals, churches,
conferences, corporate and teacher in-services and television
and radio programs, as well as theme parks.
Don Harrell, who hails from Virginia and who earned a mas-
ter's in African studies at UCLS, told The West Orange Times


Turnpike to host community
information meeting


Florida's Turnpike Enterprise
and the city of Winter Garden
will host a meeting at Winter
Garden City Hall for local resi-
dents and business owners on
Wednesday, Feb. 25, at 6 p.m.
The informational meeting is
to advise residents on the status
of the Turnpike's $123.5 mil-
lion project to widen the Turn-
pike between Beulah Road and
State Road 50 and to let them
know what impacts the work
will have in their neighbor-
hoods.
The project consists of wid-
ening Florida's Turnpike (State
Road 91) from four to eight
lanes between Beulah Road and
S.R. 50 near milepost 272. The
project also includes adding an
additional lane in each direction
on S.R. 50 with capacity for fu-'
ture widening as well.
The replacement of the bridg-
es at Winter Garden-Vineland
Road, Avalon Road and S.R.


50 is included. The interchange
will be reconfigured to a dia-
mond style, replacing the cur-
rent partial-loop interchange
and includes open-road tolling
SunPass-only lanes.
Also included in the project is
the installation of noise abate-
ment walls on department right-
of-way for qualifying property
owners adjacent to the Turn-
pike. This project will be com-
plete in the summer of 2012.
At the meeting, the Turn-
pike's design and construction
team will discuss soundwall
installation along residential
neighborhoods and advise resi-
dent of the long-term impacts of
the closure of the Winter Gar-
den-Vineland Road bridge and
the resulting detour while the
bridge is being reconstructed.
For more information, call
Christa Deason at the Turn-
pike's public information office

The Lady Warrior fastpitch softball team got off to a good start by winning a pair of pre-
season games followed by regular-season victories over South Lake and Evans. The
team is preparing to travel to California for an elite national tournament hosted by ESPN
and Nike. Pictured last week are (1-r): front row, Rachel Housego, Molly Billue, Kelly Lo-
pez, Kelsey LaNeave, Danielle Brewer; back row, Head Coach Bobby Brewer, Assistant
Coach Johnny Cavanzon, Emily Ross, Val Proulx, Missy Harvey, Taylor Fawbush, Jas-

Lady Warrior softball opens season on fire


The two of Central Florida's
top high school fastpitch soft-
ball teams faced off at a pre-
season tournament last week
at Apopka High. West Orange
High and Timber Creek, both
regional finalists last spring,
took the diamond with the Lady
Warriors winning 5-2.
Taylor Fawbush pitched
seven innings for West Orange
with only three hits allowed.
The Lady Warrior bats started
slow but heated up later in the
game. Fawbush highlighted the
offensive surge with a massive
home run that clinched the vic-
tory. Also collecting hits were
Danielle Brewer (2-for-4), Val
Proulx (3-for-4), Bree Brasch


and Molly Billue.
"I am being' told we and
Timber Creek are the two best
team in the area this year," said
WOHS Coach Bobby Brewer.
"I thought we played pretty
good and showed we are go-
ing to be a team that is going.
to show up and play every
night."
In their next game, the Lady
Warriors crushed host Apo-
pka 11-1. Billue and Kelsey
Laneave combined to pitch a
three-hitter, while Fawbush
powered the offense with
three hits. Danielle Brewer,
Proulx and Jasmine Butler all
collected two hits each. Kelly
Lopez, Billue and Brasch also


got base hits.
West Orange opened the reg-
ular season with a 7-3, victory
over South Lake. Fawbush fired
a three-hitter with nine strike-
outs while also going 3-for-4
at the plate.
Butler was 3-for-4 with an
RBI and a run scored. Brewer
had a pair of RBIs, Proulx went
2-for-4 with a double, Missy
Harvey smacked an RBI dou-
ble, and Laneave had two hits
with an RBI.
"South Lake was a good team
and played us hard," Brewer
said. "We started out slow, but
we picked it up and that is a
sign of team that is confident
in themselves."


DP knocks off Olympia, Ocoee, WOHS

to seize district basketball crown


For the Dr. Phillips Panthers,
the road to basketball's district
championship was paved with
rivals. DP defeated West Or-
ange and Ocoee high schools
before overcoming top-seed-
ed Olympia in the finals last
weekend.
The second-seeded Pan-
thers claimed the title with a
75-71 victory over former No.
1 Olympia. Sophomore Shane
Larkin scored 21 points, and
DP sank eight three-pointers
to continue its red-hot streak
of 13 consecutive wins. Senior
forward Victor Gray excelled
in the paint with 16 points.
DP kept the game close
throughout, never falling be-
hind by more than five points,
but each time the Panthers took
a slight lead, Olympia would
surge ahead. After trailing 37-
34 at the half, DP came out
patient and poised on offense
while its swarming defense
gave Olympia fits down the
stretch. In the fourth quarter,
Damani Cade and Pat Ryan
buried three-pointers in sev-
eral clutch situations to keep
the Panthers in the game.
Larkin and Chuck Ford were
able to penetrate and score ef-
fectively while also drawing
fouls. The Panthers converted
11-of-13 free throws to take
control of the game. DP led by
nine points with a minute left to
play, but a pair of three-pointers
by Olympia kept it close before
the final buzzer.
DP improved to 26-2 on the
season as it secured its second
district title in three years. With
Olympia falling and top-ranked
Boyd Anderson losing its dis-
trict title game, third-ranked
Dr. Phillips was poised to jump
to the state's No. 1 ranking for
Class 6A.


Panther basketball players celebrate after winning their
2nd district championship in 3 years.


The Panthers will host the
District 6 runner-up Osceola
Kowboys (19-8) at home this
Thursday night in the state
playoff's regional quarterfi-
nal.
Dr. Phillips shook off the
Ocoee Knights with a resound-
ing 81-59 semifinal victory to
advance to the championship
game.
Larkin led with 23 points and
eight assists, and Gray pulled
down 15 rebounds. The Pan-
thers exploded for 35 points in
the fourth quarter to pull away
from the Knights after three
quarters of close competition.
Ocoee started strong and took
a 9-3 before DP responded with
a 12-0 second-quarter run. Dar-
ius Donaldson's three-pointer,
a buzzer-beating basket by
Tavarus Stevens and a quar-
ter-opening layup by Pat Ryan
jolted DP back to life as it took
a 25-19 lead into halftime.
Leading.32-31 with less than
four minutes remaining in the
third quarter, Larkin drained a
three-pointer and followed up


with a pair of driving layups
to give DP a 39-32 lead. After
Ocoee was assessed a technical
foul, the lead swelled to 42-32
as the Panthers steadily pulled
away. In the fourth quarter,
Dr. Phillips outscored Ocoee
35-20. Ryan had a solid outing
with 12 points and five assists,
while Donaldson finished with
15 points.
The Panthers opened the dis-
trict tournament last week with
an 89-62 quarterfinal victory
over West Orange.
Larkin scored a game-high
20 points and doled out nine as-
sists. The Panthers jumped out
to a 27-14 lead in the first quar-
ter, but West Orange made a run
to close the margin to six points
in the second. After the break,
the Panthers went on an 8-0 run
early in the third quarter and
steadily pulled away for the fi-
nal margin. Gray grabbed nine
rebounds, and Cade picked up
four steals. In the night's other
quarterfinal game, top-seeded
. Olympia beat Edgewater squad
67-54.

The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,
they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
planted in the house of the Lord, they will
still bear fruit in old age, they will stay
fresh and green, proclaiming, "The Lord
is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no
wickedness in him."
Psalm 92:12-15

As I think about these words I am so en-
couraged. This is the cry of my heart: to
flourish as a strong, mature tree planted in
my Father's house. I love the picture of
deep roots constantly being nourished by
God's Word, of large shady branches bring-
ing refreshment and rest to generations. I
love the picture of strength, steadiness and
long life.

Father, make me like that tree... .green and
growing and fresh, throughout my whole
life. I look forward to my old age. I never
want to stop growing and learning from
You. Make the fruit I bear be sweet and
good and pleasing to You. Please prune me
and shape me and remove from me all that
is dead or dying that I will be ready for any
strong winds You allow to blow in my life;
ready for any attacks or disease.
I know there is no wickedness in You; not
only because Your Word says so but be-
cause I have experienced personally Your
amazing love. I trust You, Father. I know
that whatever I encounter is what You have
allowed.

Montverde Academy


Ocoee High's Heisman wins cash donation for school


The Montverde Academy kindergarten classes recently.
completed a comprehensive study of penguins. The chil-
dren learned interesting facts about penguins, ibut their
favorite facts were that penguins cannot fly and the baby
penguin receives its food from mom and dad when they
regurgitate. In addition, the daddy periguin takes care of
the egg while the mommy penguin is on vacation. Some
of the activities completed for the unit included writing
stories, graphing their favorite penguin and imitating the
penguins' movements by waddling around the classroom.
The highlight of the study was making life-like penguins
out of bottles and socks, which are displayed in the school
library. Pictured are Andrew Megler, Danielle Duran, Alia
Rodriguez and Christian Stromberg.

nounced it will host the Sun-

Nissan North America, work-
ing with Wendy's restaurants,
which sponsors the Hometown
Heisman Award for high school
seniors, has come up with a
creative way to support local
schools.
To qualify for the recognition
of Hometown Heisman, senior
student-athletes must be excel-
lent students, great athletes and
be involved in community ser-
vice.
Ocoee High senior Jared
Sanders from the varsity la-
crosse team met the criteria and
was selected by Wendy's as the
winner to represent OHS.
Along with Sanders, winners
from across Central Florida were
recognized, and their names
were placed in a drawing. Nis-
san North America, which spon-
sors college football's Heisman
Trophy, selected a winner and
made a contribution of $5,000
to that student's school in his
name.
Sanders' name was pulled
in the drawing, and OHS Was
the recipient of the check in his
honor. The check presentation
was recently aired on live televi-
sion by WOFL Fox 35. Sanders,
who also serves as secretary of
O S's National Honor Society
(NHS), joined Principal Mike
Armbruster and fellow NHS
members in receiving the check
from Mike Cook of Nissan
North America.


Mike Cook (far right), operations manager for Nissan North America, presented a $5,000
check to Ocoee High School in honor of OHS's Hometown Heisman award-winner, Jared
Sanders. Accepting the check are (1-r) Principal Mike Armbruster, Sanders and OHS
National Honor Society officers Erika Rigaud, Charmaine George, Don Ho and Jason
McLean.


Central Florida Prep


West Orange Montessori


Central Florida Prep celebrates the opening of Delaney's in memory of their daughter, who attended Central Florida
Castle. The playground was dedicated by the Ketts family Prep before she died last year.

Frangus


Delaney's Castle
opens on playground
The Ketts family was joined
recently by students and fac-
ulty of Central Florida Prep to
celebrate the opening of Dela-
ney's Castle. It was construct-
ed in celebration of Delaney
Ketts, an 8-year-old girl who
attended CFP.
In May 2008 she died sud-
denly as a result of a volvulus


with torsion (twisted bowels). It
happened during the last few
weeks of school, and the com-
munity came together to sup-
port the family and the children
who were touched by her.
Funds immediately began
coming in from friends, family,
church members and people
who were touched by the sto-
ry.
So that everybody could


remember their daughter, Jeff
and Dianne Ketts tried to find a
way that would celebrate Del-
aney's spirit. In January 2008,
Delaney set a goal that she
would "learn to monkey bar."
She would practice three days
a week on the monkey bars in
her neighborhood to accom-
plish her goal.
On April 14, 2008, Delaney
finally met her goal as she


made it from one end to the
other.
Delaney also had a great
love for the friends she made
at school and on the CFP play-
ground. Her parents decided
there was no better memorial
to Delaney than playground
equipment. Now there is a
new fun place for the kids to
play where they can remem-
ber their friend, Delaney.


MetroWest


Mary Edmonds, Keith Courtney and 'Buddy the dog,' an
Irish wolfhound, visited Frangus Elementary School as part
of Bully Prevention Week. Students watched a video se-
ries, learned about ways to stop bullying and were taught
that being'a buddy is better than being a bully.


Mrs. Euler's geometry classes at CFCA learned to cal-
culate the measure of objects and angles in a real-world
setting, using trigonometric ratios and the Law of Sines.
They were given several scenarios at different stations and
had to determine the angles of elevation and/or depres-
sion, as well as how tall or how far apart objects were.
Critical thinking was involved because the students had to
determine which trig ratio to use or when to use the Law
of Sines. Above, Breahna King and Angel Benedict work
together to solve the problem.


To encourage water conservation, the Orlando Utilities
Commission and the Orange County Utilities Water Di-
vision sponsored a student art contest. OCPS 4th- and
5th-graders were invited to create a drawing, painting
or collage that shares an important water conservation
message. Sixteen schools participated, and 160 entries
were received. Judges chose 13 pictures for the 2009
Water Conservation Calendar. Fifth-graders Gayathri Srini-
vasan and Dylan McHugh from Ms. Suess' gifted class
at MetroWest Elementary had their pictures chosen for
February and July, respectively. They are pictured above
with Suess.

Citrus Elementary held its Science Family Night on Jan. 22. Mad Science presented
