Scott Anderson and
Rosemary Wilsen
are running for the
City Commission.
By Mary Anne Swickerath
Ocoee voters residing, in
District 2 will have a choice
to make Tuesday, March 10.
They will decide whether their
City Commission representa-
tive will be incumbent Scott
Anderson, a local business-
man, or challenger Rosemary
Wilsen, a social worker for the
West Orange Christian Service
Center.
Both responded to recent
questions from The West Or-'
ange Times about their qualifi-
cations and goals for the city.
Anderson,. who has been
in office for 13 years, said he
wants to serve again so"he can
continue to make positive im-
pacts as a commissioner.
"I give educated and for-
ward-thinking decisions, and
I am optimistic about meet-
ing the continuing challenges
that face the city and feel I
offer insight through past ex-
periences, as well as support
new and innovative ideas," he


ANDERSON WILSEN
said. "I consider the impact of
the commission's action on
the citizens and taxpayers and
strive to make Ocoee an at-
tractive place to live."
Wilsen said she is seeking
Seat 2 on the commission be-
cause she feels the incumbent
has not moved Ocoee forward:
"Winter Garden has seen
tremendous changes in the
business sector, and Ocoee's
downtown remains less than
what we should expect from
our community center. District
2 has grown significantly, and
it's time that our City Com-
mission reflects this change.
Ocoee has potential, but the
city leaders need to pursue that
potential with a much more
organized and thoughtful ap-
proach."

were asked why they feel they

Town Council.
By Kathy Aber

tions about their background
and town issues, and their re-
sponses were used to compile
the following article.

Seeing red
Many public schools in Orange County, including those in West Orange, urged students
and parents to wear red Friday to symbolize the-pain of education funding cuts at the
state level. A big rally was also held at the University of Central Florida Saturday to fur-
ther protest these cuts. Above, Ocoee High students and staff gathered in the school's
courtyard Friday to illustrate their support of proper funding for education. In addition, the
students wrote letters to state legislators and put signs on their cars with the slogan 'Cuts
in education never heal.'

WOHS students use $20,000 grant

to create safe-driving PSA contest


Citizens can see
the eight entries
during judging next
Tuesday at the
school,

By Amy Quesinberry
Erica Carr was 17 when she
died in 2006. Adryan E. Shil-
ling was too. Nick Derepen-
tigny and Juan E. Ceballos
were both 15.
The West Orange High
School family lost all four
students within a month that
summer when they were killed
in automobile crashes. A fifth
WO student, Brett William
Dashnaw, 16, lost his life after
a crash four months later.
Immediately, the school's
PTSA put together a teen safe-
driving initiative with one
goal: to save lives.
As part of this project, the
WOHS PTSA created com-
munity driving programs such
as a car-care clinic and eve-
ning programs with speakers
and testimonials. It has also
held the Ford Driving Skills
for Life course and hosted (as
4<


a third party) driver-training
courses in various locations in
West Orange County.
For these efforts, the PTSA
was recently awarded a
$20,000 grant "to create ad-
ditional educational and infor-
mational programs aimed at
keeping teens and others safe
on the road," said Heidi Koch
of the PTSA.
The grant came through
the generosity of the Driving
Skills For Life program, which
is a partnership between Ford
Motor Co. Fund and the Gov-
ernor's Highway Safety Asso-
ciation.
The school elected to use
the funds for a public service
announcement campaign and
created a contest open to Flor-
ida high schools. Eight teams
of students from WOHS,
Ocoee, Olympia, University,
Lake Howell, Lake Highland,
Plant City and Godby (Talla-
hassee) high schools entered.
The teams were given a maxi-
mum of $1,500 to create a
"for teens by teens" PSA and
to continue the safe-driving
campaign.
The final projects will be
judged by an impartial panel


next Tuesday, March 10, at
7 p.m. in the West Orange
High School auditorium. The
public is invited to attend the
program, which will include
a viewing of the eight entries
and the announcement of the
winner. Driving safety will be
addressed, too, during the eve-
ning.
The winning PSA will be
aired on local government
channels throughout the state
in time for spring break, grad-
uation and summer break -
when teens are more likely to
be behihd the wheel.
Also, Clear Channel is pro-
viding billboard space.
Koch said the West Orange
team incorporated the de-
ceased teens into its PSA. Af-
ter their deaths, a billboard was
donated and erected on West
Colonial Drive near the road
leading to WOHS as a memo-
rial to four of the students and
as a reminder to drive safely.
Images of that billboard were
used, which made for a "pow-
erful message," she said.
"It's their story," said
Koch. "We're trying to turn a

names park


in memory of


fallen
By Michael Laval
No longer will Winter Gar-
den's new park be referred to-
as "Southside Park," as it has
been by many residents since
its plans were first announced.
The City Commission voted
unanimously at last Thurs-
day's meeting to approve a
name memorializing Grady
Braddock, an Orange County
Sheriff's deputy who died in
an automobile rash at the in-
tersection of Winter Garden-
Vineland Road and Lake But-
ler Boulevard right next to
the new park that will open in
April.
Although a committee of
citizens had been formed to
deliberate on possible names
suggested by the public, the
city leaders passed on the pan-
el's recommendation to name
the park after Jerry Chicone.
The idea to name the park af-
ter Braddock was submitted by
resident Stephanie Berry, and
the commissioners liked it.
A Winter Garden resident
and West Orange High gradu-
ate, Braddock died in 1998 at
the age of 29 while respond-
ing to a call to assist another
officer in a vehicle pursuit. As
he approached the intersec-
tion, Braddock's patrol car
was struck by the suspect's
vehicle, which was traveling


deputy
at about 100 miles per hour.
Braddock and .a passenger in
the other vehicle were both
killed, while the suspect driver
survived.
"He was a friend of mine,"
Commissioner Gerald Jowers
said. "He was proud to be from
Winter Garden and proud to be
a deputy sheriff."
The commissioners also
agreed on placing an emphasis
on the park belonging to the
city of Winter Garden.
"One of the strides we're
trying to make in Winter Gar-
den is that we're one commu-
nity," said Commissioner Bob
Buchanan. "So, I would not
like to see the name Southside
used."
Commissioner Harold Boul-
er said: "A lot of nearby Wind-
ermere residents will probably
be using this park, so I would
like it to be known that this is
a Winter Garden park."
The official sign at the park,
as suggested last Thursday by
City Manager Michael Boll-
hoefer, will read: City of Win-
ter Garden Braddock Park,
dedicated to Deputy, Grady T.
Braddock.
In another matter, City At-
torney Kurt Ardaman reported
that a lawsuit filed against the
city by District 4 resident Jim

Anderson said: "While keep-
ing our taxes low, I have fought
vigorously for improvement of
sidewalks, lakes, road resurfac-
ing, stormwater and utility proj-
ects, recreation improvement,
police and fire upgrades and
speeding. I have 30 years of ex-
perience in balancing budgets,
prioritizing funds, insight and
accountability, as well as run-
ning businesses."
He added that he has a "con-
siderable amount of institu-
tional knowledge and practical
experience."
Wilsen answered that same'
question by saying: "A commis-
sioner is a citizen looking out
for other citizens and working
to better others' lives. For the
past 16 years, I have demon-
strated a track record of success
in helping people in crisis and
being fiscally responsible dur-
ing my course of employment
at the Christian Service Center
in Ocoee. My participation as
a community activist has pre-
pared me to help lead Ocoee. I
believe my passion and experi-
ence are what the city need as
this critical time."
As to the most important is-
sues in Ocoee at this time, An-
derson said: "Health and safety
of our citizens and property is
always the No. 1 issue. Jobs
and economic development
are even more critical concerns
as we move into an uncertain
economy. Ocoee needs eco-
nomic retention of our local
businesses. We need to address
citizen safety concerns in parts
of the city, i.e., the mall. With
all the foreclosures, we need
to do a better job working with
homeowner associations and


II


local blocks protecting prop-
erty values from deteriorating.
As always, we need open and
fair communication. We need to
become more fiscally respon-
sible while promoting positive
change and responsible growth.
Our police and fire departments
need the necessary tools to pro-
tect and serve the citizens."
" Wilsen reiterated her opinion
that economic development is
one of the most important is-
sues in Ocoee.
"We should be concentrat-
ing on our unique position in
central Florida with four major
roadways that converge in our
city [West Colonial Drive, the
Western Beltway, the Florida
Turnpike and the East-West Ex-
pressway]. These interchanges
shouildbe utilized to attract cor-
porate headquarters to locate/
relocate to our city. This is
clean industry that provides a
huge tax base without putting
much more pressure on our
public safety resources." -
She also added her interest in
downtown economic develop-'
ment and beautification of the
city's core.
"The city owns a great deal
of real estate in the downtown
area that could be developed for
the public's use," she said.
Anderson said that besides
the issues already discussed,
he would have as his goals, if
re-elected, to keep the citizens
informed and involved in the
decision-making process, to
work on economic development
to create good-paying jobs and
to maintain city services with
increasing limited resources in
a cost-effective manner.

added. "I will continue working
to advance our quality of life
while keeping our community's
uniqueness."
As for what Wilsen would
most like to accomplish if
elected, she answered: "As a
commissioner, I would insist on
fiscal responsibility and smart
planning, not just haphazard
development to fill spaces. I
would be relentless in getting
Ocoee developer-friendly to
attract investors who want to
improve our quality of life. I
would always keep close in
my mind and heart that Ocoee
shall be a community where we
want to live, work and raise our
children without compromising
our traditions, public safety and
the good quality of life that has
kept us in Ocoee."
Anderson, a resident of Dis-
trict 2 for 30 years, is a gradu-
ate of Central Michigan Uni-
versity. He and his wife of 18
years, Linda, have one son. He
is a member of the First Baptist
Church of Ocoee, the Ocoee Li-
ons Club and the West Orange
Airport Authority Board.
Wilsen, who has lived in the
district for 12 years, earned a
degree in social work from the
University of Central Florida.;
She and her husband, Fred, have
been married 29 years and have
two daughters. She has served
as a volunteer on the Founders'
Day and Spring Fling commit-
tees and as a member of various
city and PTA boards.
Only residents of District 2
will be eligible to vote in this
election, and the polling site
will be the Ocoee Community
Center.


This is a composite of the
suspect in the Feb. 21
armed robbery in Ocoee.

Armed robbery
suspect sought
According to the Ocoee po-
lice, on Feb.:21, a woman was
leaving the Borders bookstore
at 9441 W. Colonial Drive in
Ocoee to walk to her car. She
was approached by a black or
Hispanic man in his late 20s
who pointed a handgun at her
and demanded her purse.
The victim gave him the
purse, and the suspect fled to
a white 1995-97 Ford Crown
Victoria (possibly an ex-police
vehicle due to a spotlight on
the driver's side) and left the
scene.
The victim was not
harmed.
A witness to the incident re-
called seeing the same vehicle
as she left a nearby store and
believed the suspect and ve-
hicle followed her to Borders.

I have a feeling you're not much different than
me. You have some real questions about how
we can truly stimulate our ailing economy.
And the passing of trillions of dollars of
stimulus packages, bank bailouts, and loans to
the auto industry have done little to alleviate
any of our anxiety other than getting us used
to the concept of trillions instead of billions.
Whether the economy will be stimulated by
recent actions has yet to be proved, so let
me propose my own stimulus package of a
different sort.
Action #1: Give Our Leaders and Ourselves
the Freedom to Say No. Change and pain are
inevitable. Just like the discipline of fasting
in the spiritual realm, we need to learn to say
no so we are always prepared to say yes to the
more important things of life. Our appetites
on Wall Street, in government, and on Main
Street USA may need to be curbed and not fed.
Action #2: Let's Choose to be a Community.
As a community, let's put more energy into
accepting corporate responsibility rather than
distracting through assigning blame. Our mess
exists because of Wall Street, government, and
"Main Street USA". And as we look for solu-
tions let's behave as a community and not just
as individuals with special interests.
Action #3: Let's Generate a New Era of
Service. Our neighbors, schools, local govern-
ments, churches and social service agencies
need for us to give in a new way as resources
decline. Our inability to write a check can be
greatly compensated by the offering of our
time and talent.
Though I'm not sure of the economic impact
of my stimulus package, I do believe it just
might stimulate something new within us and
in our relationships with each other. The Bible
does speak about our growth potential during
difficult times.
Let me know what you think. Send me an
email to jdunwell@westwoodchurch.com
or visit my blog at www.pastorjondunwell.

I Thursday, March 5, 2009 The West Orange Times 3A


Windermere
He served in the U.S. Army
for three years, attaining the
rank of captain. He was a he-
licopter pilot and served one
tour of duty in Vietnam, earning
many commendations,s includ-
ing the Purple Heart.
He has been a Windermere
resident since 1979, and he and
wife, Dawn, have two children,
Zac, 9, and Josh, 5.
Briggs said he first ran for
election in 2007 because, as a
longtime resident, he was inter-
ested in serving the town. He is
seeking re-election to continue
this service.
"The town has an excellent
council now," said Briggs,
"but it is losing the only oth-
er attorney on the council, as
Bob Sprick is not seeking re-
election."
When asked what skills he
would bring as a council mem-
ber, Briggs said his 35 years as
an attorney would provide the
council with a "very healthy
mix of experience among its
members."
His goals, if elected, include
keeping Windermere an attrac-
tive place to live and finding
ways to increase revenues.
"My goal is to see that the
town management continues in
a thoughtful, intelligent man-
ner through a council that has
no agenda other than making
Windermere a better place to
live," said Briggs.
"In addition, at a goal-set-
ting seminar that the council
attended last year, as a group
we decided our No. 1 priority
was to find ways to increase
our revenues so that we can
have the means to provide the
services that our residents are
expecting. I am committed to
the council fulfilling that goal
and exploring any options that
will improve the financial vi-
ability of the town."

Burns Hovey
Hovey is a residential build-
ing contractor'and served on
Windermere's Development
Review Board prior to his
election in 2007. He has lived
in Windermere for 15 years,
having first moved to town
with his family when he was
a youngster.
He holds an AA degree from
Valencia Community College
in business administration and
a bachelor's degree in business
from the University of Tennes-
see. He is a former member
of the Rotary Club of Wind-
ermere and a current member
of St. Luke's United Methodist
Church.
He has been married to his
wife, Maureen, for 18 years,
and they have two children,
Cole, 15, and Amelia, 11.
Hovey told the Times he is
running for re-election to con-
tinue to help preserve the town's
"great small-town atmosphere.
Windermere is a wonderful
town to call home."
He said he would like to be
involved in the decision-mak-
ing process as challenges arise
for the town "to make the best
choices on behalf of the resi-
dents.
"As a current Town Coun-
cil member, I have experience
working with other council
members and the town staff in
reviewing proposed projects
and making decisions in the
best interest of the town and
its residents," said Hovey.
He said the town is facing a
number of critical issues.
Hovey believes the top prior-
ity "is meeting the needs of our
residents with decreasing rev-
enues in this tough economic
time.
"If re-elected, I will continue
to work with committees and
staff members to stay within the
budget for expenditures. I be-
lieve any new expenditures will
need to be reviewed for their
merit and urgency before being
approved by the council."
He said other priorities in-
clude controlling stormwa-
ter runoff and managing the
growth of the downtown busi-
ness district.
"The stormwvater runoff proj-
ect has been started and contin-
ues to be a priority for many
residents on streets that suffer
during heavy rains. This proj-
ect is also important to retain
the pollutants and keep them


from entering our lakes," said
Hovey.
In addition, he said managing
growth to maintain the "small-
town feel" is an important topic
for many town residents.

Cecil Robinson
Robinson retired from Walt
Disney World in 1998 as vice
president of Facility Services.
For 10 years he was employed
in the WDW finance division.
He has been married to his
wife, Virginia, for 43 years, and
they have lived in Windermere


(Continued from 1A)


since 1978. The couple has one
daughter, Celia Anderson, a
son-in-law, Douglas Anderson,
and two grandsons, 10 and 7,
who live in Jacksonville.
Robinson holds a degree in
business administration from
Auburn University. He has
served on the Traffic Commit-
tee and was the chairman of the
Long-range Planning Commit-
tee.
Robinson said no specific is-
sues or concerns prompted him
to run for the Town Council.
"I just have a desire to serve
the town and citizens of Win-
dermere after living here for
more than 30 years," he said.
Robinson said he attends the
council meetings on a fairly
regular basis and stays informed
on the issues and problems that
affect the town.
, "My extensive experience
in the private business world,
managing people, issues, bud-
gets and problems, will benefit
the governing of our town,"
Robinson said.
If elected, he said, his goals
include listening to citizens
to be a spokesperson for their


viewpoints, preserving Wind-
ermere's small-town charac-
ter and improving the town's
working relationship with Or-
ange County.

M6lly Rose
Rose retired last year. From
1993, she was a project man-
ager for Idle Time Network, a
company that manages enter-
tainment projects. Previously,
she was employed by Universal
and Walt Disney World.
She has lived in Windermere
for 16 years and has been mar-
ried to Bob Fleming for 14
years. She has two children,
Chris, 37, and Saunders, 23,
and has been a Windermere
resident since 1993.
She holds a Bachelor of Sci-
ence degree in business admin-
istration and management from
California State University in
Northridge. She is a member
of the Development Review
Board and has served on the
Traffic Committee.
Rose said two issues, control-
ling future commercial growth
and the ever-increasing traf-
fic patterns within the-town,


prompted her to run for Town
Council.
Her qualifications include
more than 30 years experience
in the area of project manage-
ment, such as budgeting, con-
tracting, scheduling and quality
control for both new develop-
ment and ongoing businesses.
She said these skills are needed
in working with the town staff
and council to develop a bal-
anced budget and in an ongo-
ing review of how the money
is actually spent.
"In addition, I have the abil-
ity to review drawing packages
from concept through construc-
tion documents to.ensure that
the town guidelines are being
followed for any construction
that is being planned," said
Rose.
Her main goal, if elected, is
to "make sure that residents'
voices are heard.
"I personally would like to
keep the quaint quality of life
that we have in Windermere,
but I see this position as a rep-
resentative of the residents and
implementing what the major-
ity wants," Rose said.


Commission (Continued from lA)
Gustino has hit another roadblock.
Gustino, an attorney, first filed suit in state court arguing that the
city's realigned district boundaries, approved by the commission
in October, violated the City Charter. After a judge dismissed his
first suit, Gustino appealed to federal court.
Ardaman said last Thursday that the federal judge ruled against
a requested injunction by Gustino seeking to halt Winter Garden's
March 10 municipal election.
"She ruled that he [Gustino] did not have standing to bring that
claim," Ardaman said.
The judge, Ardaman said, granted Winter Garden's motion to
dismiss Gustino's suit, but also allowed Gustino a 15-day window
of opportunity to amend his complaint. "It's not dead yet, but
there's another nail in the coffin," Ardaman said.

4A The West Orange Times Thursday, March 5, 2009


Opinion


In our opinion

Editorials


Some residents have an election Tuesday


We hope the municipal elections
Tuesday in West Orange County will
draw voters. Residents in Ocoee's Dis-
trict 2, Winter Garden's District 2 and
all Windermere residents have a chance
to vote for their respective representa-


tives. City commissioners and town
council members have a big impact on
the lives of citizens, and those citizens
should make their voices heard.
The West Orange Times recommends
five candidates.


Wilsen in Ocoee


District 2 incumbent Scott Anderson
has served on the Ocoee City Commis-
sion for 13 years and has proven to be a
dedicated public servant, one who has
worked hard on community issues.
Rosemary Wilsen, his challenger, has
been an active member on' city boards
and has kept up with the issues facing


the city in these trying economic times.
She has spoken up at many commission
meetings and has exhibited a lot of good
sense each time.
We would like to see her have the
chance to become a part of the decision-
making process. We feel she has good
ideas to offer.


Briggs, Hovey and Robinson in Windermere


Windermere is in an enviable posi-
tion of having four qualified candidates
running for three Town Council seats.
Incumbents John Briggs and Burns
Hovey, along with first-timers Cecil
Robinson and Molly Rose, will face
off on March 10. All four have solid
backgrounds.'
Briggs and Hovey have handled the
job well and bring valuable skills to'


council. They deserve to, continue for
two more years. Robinson and Rose are
both longtime residents with experience
on Windermere's volunteer boards.
Robinson gets the nod because he has
been actively involved in town council
issues for many years as both a sup-
porter and critic. He is widely known
among residents as someone who would
focus on the best interest of the town.


Bob Buchanan will face Thomas
Gregory in Winter Garden's District 2.
Buchanan has been a solid independent,
voice on the commission, while his op-
ponent has demonstrated very little uii-
derstanding of the workings of Winter
Garden.
Gregory's "talking points" are more
reminiscent of a vague politician than


a city commissioner. He admittedly has
some political aspirations that could
include Tallahassee and. Washington;
howevIer, we suggest taking a few more
steps in Winter Garden before using the
City Commission as the stone to the
next level.
We strongly endorse Bob Buchanan
for re-election in District 2.


75 years ago.
Winter Garden, Oakland and other towns bor-
dering Lake Apopka are overlooking an oppor-
tunity in not promoting their bass fishing more
vigorously. There are. many visitors in Orlando
looking for just such a place, but if they are
without a car, there is no way for them to get to
Lake Apopka. There are no buses. Usually he
contents himself with sitting in Eola Park and
feeding the seagulls.

65 years ago
Three members of the senior class at Lakev-
iew High School Arthur Maxwell, Loren
Williams and Harry Lee Davis have been en-
listed in the Navy in Jacksonville. All three boys
took advantage of the current Navy program
that permits boys who are in the last semester
of high school to enlist and then return home
until after graduation.

55 years ago
Lt. Charles McKim "Kim" Barley, U.S. Army,
son of George and Betty Barley of Winter Gar-
den, has been awarded the Bronze Star Medal
by direction of the President of the United States
for meritorious service in connection with mili-
tary operations against the armed enemy during


the period from July 1953 to February 1954.
It is really gratifying to see our city gradually
gain the appearance of an up-and-coming place
to live. The new street signs really ad a lot of
glamour to Winter Garden.
Mayor V.E. Bourland has received an invita-
tion to attend the annual convention of the Past
Presidents of the State Association of County
Commissioners.

35 years ago
The Bicentennial Planning Committee for
the Winter Garden-Oakland area has scheduled
its first meeting. Its aim is to plan projects and
activities to mark our nation's 200th birthday on
July 4, 1976, according to Committee Chairman
Harriette Grimes.

20 years ago
A memorial service was held for Todd
Aldridge, 27, who died Feb. 24 in the line of
duty while fighting a fire in the Sunrise Gift
Center in Lake Buena Vista with the Orlando
Fire Department. The son of Ray and Dene
Aldridge, he was a lifelong West Orange resi-
dent, and attended Windermere Elementary and
Lakeview Junior High and graduated from West
Orange High School in 1979.;Besides his par-
ents, he is survived by his wife and two sons.


Get involved with West Orange Relay for Life


By Mike Armbruster
As the principal of Ocoee High School, I have
received thousands of phone calls over the years,
many of which are long forgotten, but I still re-
member getting the tearful phone call from our
head baseball coach at the time, Eric.Entrekin. He
was calling to inform me that our
assistant baseball coach and his
good friend, Eddie Doyle, had a
son who had just been diagnosed
with cancer. Eddie, a teacher and
now head baseball coach here
at Ocoee High School, had al-
ready touched a lot of lives and
had shown what it meant to be a
Knight at a new school, one still
getting off the ground.
The news was devastating;
I remember thinking about my
own daughter and how crushing
that news would be to me. Con- OHS HOPI
nor Doyle was 3 years old at the Head Baseb
time. The news spread quickly, Doyle with si
and so many people moved to
action to help the family and to do whatever they
could to make this difficult time more bearable. As
is often the case in moments like these, we get to
see the very best of people. A golf tournament was
set up raising thousands of dollars, work schedules
were adjusted to allow Eddie to be with his son,
and people started wearing green bracelets with
Connor's name on them.
Ayear later on Oct. 18, 2008, Connor's grand-
father sent out the following information:
"Today marked the first anniversary since the
dreadful diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leuke-
mia. The year has been a challenge for Connor and
his family, but the journey became more bearable
becauseof his outstanding medical team (Dr. Haj-
jar), the love of his many, many friends and, most
importantly, the family's walk with God.
"During the first year, Connor has bravely


E


handled the following: 91 chemo IV's; 59 doctor
visits; 56 days in the Children's Cancer Hospital;
50 doses of steroids; over 400 pills; 8 breathing
treatments; 15 lumbar punctures; 7 chemo shots;
2 bone marrow biopsies; 2 central line surgeries;
4 Blood Transfusions; 5 platelet infusions; 1 PICC
line placement; numerous chest X-rays, echocar-
diograms and MRV scans; and
ONEHAIRLOSS!"
Connor, like his father, has
been an example to all of us.
You will see him at baseball
games, visiting the campus
and running around like any
other child: He is an inspira-
tion to everyone he meets. He,
like so many others, is also the
reason that we continue the
West Orange Relay for Life.
It is a chance for all of us to
show our very best side. It is a
teacher. and chance to make a difference.

Florida Turnpike
stations break
fund-raising goals
Martin Petroleum, the op-
erator of the six Florida Turn-
pike Citgo stations, including
the Turkey Lake service plaza,
presented a check recently for
$67,000 to the Muscular Dys-
trophy Association to support
research and treatment.for neu-
romuscular diseases.
The money was raisedthrough
the sale of holiday stocking mo-
biles at Florida Turnpike Citgo
stations in November and De-
cember. With the support of
Turnpike motorists and local
communities along the Florida
Turnpike, Martin Petroleum ex-
ceeded its fund-raising goal by
more than $9,000.
"While we see motorists
from around the country on
the Florida Turnpike, the local
communities around our Turn-
pike stations are .the bedrock of
support for our programs," said
Richard Wheeler, vice presi-
dent of Martin Petroleum. "The
caring and charitable giving of
our local customers allows us
to continually go above and be-
yond in support of great causes
such as the MDA."
Martin Petroleum and Citgo
will continue their support of
MDA in 2009 with the goal of
breaking previous fund-raising
records with the support of
communities along the Florida
Turnpike, Wheeler said.

OCPS seeks diverse, small business partnerships


Orange County Public
Schools reinvested $50 mil-
lion with local businesses in
the second half of 2008 and is
now looking to help stimulate
the local economy by provid-
ing business opportunities to
diverse and small businesses.
The district reinvested in the
local economy last year through
its Minority/Women-owned
Business Enterprise (MWBE)
and the Developing Business
(LDB) programs. Both are de-
signed to cycle funds, opportu-
nities and resources back into
local communities the district
serves.
The MWBE and LDB pro-
grams are administered by the


office of business opportunity.
"We buy and you sell," said
Joycelyn H. Henson, senior
administrator for the district's
office of business opportu-
nity. "In a slow'economy, it is
particularly important that we
continue to support the local
small businesses."
The office of business op-
portunity actively seeks to
identify MWBEs and LDBs
to become part of the district's
vendor database. Also, district
staff works closely with ven-
dors, prime contractors, archi-
tectural and engineering firms
and subcontractors to facilitate
relationships. "
The district's policy de-


fines MWBE as firms that are
owned (51 percent) by either a
woman or an ,ethnic minority
and must be certified by one
of the following agencies: state
of Florida Office of Supplier
Diversity, Orange County gov-
ernment, the city of Orlando,
Greater Orlando Aviation Au-
thority and the Florida Minor-
ity Supplier Diversity Council.
LDB firms must be located
in Orange, Osceola, Lake or
Seminole counties and meet
specific net worth and profit
limitations.
For more information about
the district's MWBE and LDB
programs, call 407-317-3729
or visit www.obo.ocps.net. ,

You might recognize a few faces
on Wheel of Fortune next week -
two mother-and-son duos from West
Orange County are appearing on the
ABC game show.
Linda Sherrill of Windermere
and her son, Aaron Sherrll of Cel-
ebration, will be contestants on the
March 9 episode; and Terry Antho-
ny, and her son, Steve Anthony, will
compete on the March 12 episode;
The Sherrills tried out for the show
after Aaron's fiancee signed them up
for tryouts without telling them.
The Anthonys said they have been'
lifelong fans of the show and are
planning a viewing party to celebrate
their television debut. '
Both families taped the shows
for Family Fun Week last Decem-
ber at SeaWorld Orlando's Bayside
Stadium.
Another local resident will ap-
pear on the show this month when
Chris Cole of Winter Garden spins
the big wheel for money and prizes

Fish fry Saturday
What happens when you com-
bine the Ocoee Church of God's
talent fund-raiser, some creativ-
ity and a "mess o' fish"? The
Ocoee Church of God Fish Fry
and Country Craft Fair happens.
Back in January, the church's
senior pastor, the Rev. Thomas
Odom, handed out nearly $2,000
in cash to the congregation and
challenged each person to take
the "talent" he or she received
and multiply it over the next
nine weeks.
Since then, everything from
brownies to barrettes has been
available in the foyer before
and after services. A few folks,
though, weren't- sure what to
do-until they realized they
had enough fish to feed a crowd.
Church members Gary and Veda
Ashberry, Alan and Sonia Dreh-
man, Keith Peaden and Joyce
Walls hope to feed enough
people to multiply their talents.
And while ,this group is frying
fish and serving, others plan to
set up tables to vend their wares.
Brittany Posey has been making
pins; her cousin Taelor Callahan
has been baking brownies. So,
stop by the church this Satur-
day, March 7 between 11a.m.
and 2 p.m., have a plate of fish
and some iced tea, take a look
at the crafts and buy a brownie.
Fish dinners will be $6 each, and
brownie prices vary by flavor.
Ocoee Church of God is located
at 1105 N. Lakewood Ave.

Upgrading from pond to lake
The city of Winter Garden has been enlarging the retention pond behind the old Dillard
Street Elementary School, so this alligator had to find another home. It was spotted in
the Neals' front yard, and Winter Garden police officers used the family's dog crates to
capture the animal and release it in Lake Apopka. According to the family, the crate used
to haul the alligator belongs to their son's dog, whose name is Ally Gator.


Winter Garden


stay with proven leadership," he
said. "I am the best candidate
for the job due to the breadth
of my background. I have a
thorough knowledge of our
municipal government and am
better able to make the changes
necessary for our community
during this economic crisis."
Buchanan also cited his pro-
fessional experience in manage-
ment and as a small-business
owner for giving him insight on
the issues facing Winter Garden
residents and businesses.
Gregory vowed to bring an
increased level of accessibility
to District 2 constituents, say-
ing he would be a more visible
presence at homeowners asso-
ciation meetings and be more
attentive to their needs.
"A commissioner is a rep-
resentative of the people, and
you can't represent them if you.
have never seen them," Greg-
ory said. "My fellow residents
and I only see my opponent in
City Hall. I, on the other hand,
am going door to door to talk
to my constituents to get their
feedback and insights into Win-
ter Garden's issues."
If elected, Gregory said, he
plans to continue going door to
door to solicit citizen input.
"I may not be able to help
improve everybody's life, but
in government I will have the


opportunity to make Winter
Garden a better place to live,"
Gregory added.
As a current commission
member, Buchanan said, he is
well-versed on problems fac-
ing Winter Garden and he is
confident the city is handling
them well. He pointed to budget
planning, water management
and expanding or creating new
park facilities the new south-
side park, Zanders Park and
Bouler Pool as matters that
have been and will continue to
be a priority for the City Com-
mission.
"We have created a State
Road 50 board to beautify the
road, established a strategic
budget plan and have now intro-
duced the citizens' component
to ensure services are provided
efficiently and effectively.
"We have established a re-
claimed water system to re-
sponsibly address water con-
servation," Buchanan added.
"Finally, I would like to add all
of this has been accomplished
without raising taxes."
Gregory explained that he
supports infrastructure projects,
but only when the city can af-
ford them. In the face of fall-
ing revenues, he said, Winter
Garden must not be tempted to
increase tax rates or fees.
"The immediate solution to


- (Continued from 1A)

the problem is to delay major
building projects." Gregory
said. "While it is true that the
old city buildings are cramped
and new city buildings would
be helpful, we simply cannot
afford new buildings until
the economy and our revenue
stream return to normal."
Gregory also cited many is-
sues brought to his attention
by District 2 citizens while
campaigning, such as requests
by Brandy Creek residents for
signage designating their com-
munity's lake as private.
"While the most important
issue is city funding, we cannot
forget the smaller individual is-
sues," he said.
A new municipal polling lo-
cation has been established for
the March 10 election Win-
ter Garden Primitive Baptist
Church, 943 W. Story Road,
located at the intersection of
West Plant Street and West.
Story Road. The polls will be
open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Winter Garden adjusted its
district boundaries in Decem-
ber, resulting in some residents
being assigned to a new district.

ing districts is available on the
city Web site, www.cwgdn.

DP girls

tennis stays

unbeaten
The Dr. Phillips High varsity
girls tennis team (4-0) contin-
ued its perfect start to the season
with a 6-1 victory at University
on Saturday. The Lady Panthers
did it without their regular lines
one, two or three players. Singles
victories for Malee Bringardner
(8-0), Jacqui Sunga (8-3), Taylor
Stewart (8-1), ElifArditi (8-3)
and Katie Satava (8-3) had al-
ready secured the victory for the
Panthers; but Alyssa Licata and
Brittany Hubbard (8-6) on line
one doubles sealed the match.
The Lady Panthers picked
up an easy 7-0 win over visit-
ing Apopka. Singles wins for
Costanza Trimarchi (8-1), Nik-
ki Chappell (8-1), team captain
Kelsey Haddock (8-0), Brin-
'ardner (8-1) and Sunga (8-0)
had already secured the match,
while the doubles lines of Tri-
marchi and Chappell (8-3) and
Haddock and Bringardner (8-1)
completed the sweep.
The varsity boys tennis team
(3-2) had a tough day last Sat-
urday vs. Apopka. Despite his
sickness, Kyle Morioka played
on line one and managed to win
some spectacular points but was
not himself and fell 8-2. He
was unable to participate in the
doubles competition. Sebastian
Miller and Matsugu Noguchi
on lines two and three played
identical matches both lead-
ing for most of the way and then
both finding themselves tied at
6-6. Both Meiller and Noguchi
lost their, singles matches 8-6.
Dexter Tate on line four gave
DP hope with a great 8-3 win,
and Rafael Peralta on line five
took his opponent apart in an
8-0 win.
After the Apopka match, the
team traveled to University. DP
saw singles wins for Peralta (8-
2) and Eddie Harries (8-3) and
a doubles victory for Peralta and
Emmanuel Propst (8-4), but that
was not enough as the Panthers
fell 4-3.,
Patrick Fenlon pitched three
shutout innings and allowed
only one hit while striking out
two and Mark Nelson tripled in
a run as the DP varsity baseball
team defeated Lake Highland
6-4 last Friday night at Tinker
Field in Orlando. Blake Hut-
ton went one-for-three with a
.double and an RBI; while Jose
Martinez went two-for-three at
the plate. DP improved to 4-1
on the season, its best start since
2005.

Lady Warrior softball beats Ocoee 12-0


Rivals West Orange and
Ocoee high schools met on.
the softball diamond last week
with the Lady Warriors claim-
ing a decisive 12-0 victory.
West Orange improved to 4-1
on the season while Ocoee fell
to 4-3.
Taylor Fawbush fired a one-
hitter, striking put 10 Ocoee
batters. She also led West Or-
ange's offensive attack with
two hits including a home
run. Danielle Brewer, Jasmine
Butler and Molly Billue all had
two hits apiece with multiple
RBIs. Kelsey Laneave con-
nected for a double.
"We have hit the ball a lot
better in the last two games,
Taylor has thrown the ball real
well and we have played good
defense behind her especially
at third and behind the plate
with Missy Harvey and Bree
Brasch," said WOHS Coach
Bobby Brewer. "I have been
impressed with the way Kelsey
Laneave has swung the bat all'


year."
Fawbush racked up 11 more
strikeouts during a five-hit
pitching performance against
Lake Mary last week. The
Lady Warriors lost, though,
5-3. Fawbush, Val Proulx and
Butler picked up hits. Coach
Brewer placed the blame for
the loss on himself.
"We just did not show up
ready to play, and that is my
fault," Brewer said. "We had
a couple of plays we normally
make that hurt us. We had
our chances with people on
base and just did not get them
home. We just have to go back
to work and get better."
Fawbush also pitched in
West Orange's 10-0 victory
over Colonial, firing a three-
hit shutout with six strikeouts.
Butler powered the offense
by going two-for-three, with
,a home run and four RBIs.
Proulx and Laneave had two
hits apiece.
"When we come out like that


I am not sure any one can beat
us," Brewer said. "We will have
to play like that every game if
we want to be one of the best
teams in the area."
In junior varsity softball ac-
tion, West Orange suffered its
first loss of the season to South
Lake but rebounded with vic-
tories over Freedom 12-0 and
Harmony 17-4.
Mikaela Renschler pitched

"Butlwantyou to know, brethren, that the things
which happened to me have actually turned out
for the furtherance of the gospel, so that it has
become evident to the whole palace guard, and
to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ. "
Philippians 1:12,13


First of all, God wants us to know that all
things work together for His good. God is able
to take our present situation and mold it to-
ward the furtherance of the Gospel. Even
what may look like a bad situation can become
an opportunity to be a witness of Jesus'Christ.
Who knows what God will do? If we will re-
main true to the faith,.and refuse to compro-
mise our belief, God will use us in a mighty
way. If we, on a daily basis, continue to walk
the talk of our faith in Christ, others will begin
to believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our faith in Jesus Christ should be evident to
everyone around us. People should see, hear,
and experience a difference when they are near
us. We should be living examples of God's
righteousness. People should know.that we
are Christians and. we shouldn't hide.the truth
of our faith in Christ.
It's time for us to stand up and be bold in our
faith, regardless of situations or people. It was
evident to the prison guards that Apostle Paul
was a Christian. He spoke with boldness of his
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
We're not chained to the world anymore, we
are chained to Christ, a new creation in Him,
old things have passed away. We have a new
walk, a new talk, a new mind and a new spirit.
We shouldn't act like we used to; we are not
chained to our old lifestyle anymore!

Ocoee Elementary


Tammy Lundman, pictured in the computer lab assisting
J. Morgan Simpson andMatthew Slaver, has been named
Ocoee Elementary's Teacher of the Year.


Fifth-graders
praise Ocoee teacher
Ocoee Elementary an-
nounced Tammy Lundman has
been picked as the school rep-
resentative for Teacher of the
Year.
Lundman is a wonderful and
caring person in and out of
school. She is always happy
and has a smiling face when
she looks at us. For many of
us, that has been since kin-
dergarten. As fifth-graders,
we understand the time and
energy Mrs. Lundman puts in
to research great software pro-
grams that will help us learn


and gain knowledge about
technology.
Before Mrs. Lundman pur-
chases anything, she always
makes sure it's easy and fun
for us to learn. Also, Mrs. Lun-
dman is willing to lend a hand
when we don't understand
something.
Whenever there is a fund-
raiser she will take time to help
raise money for our school. In
conclusion, we feel Mrs. Lund-
man should be Teacher of the
Year. Whenever she works,
she always makes it a Wvork of
art.

Cabbage plants
Every year Bonnie Plants
donates cabbage plants to the
third-grade classes at Tilden-
ville Elementary for the annual
Bonnie's Cabbage. Program.
'Each student in third grade
takes a plant home to watch it
grow, and they also plant cab-
bage in the school garden in
Tiger Park.
The student who grows the
largest cabbage statewide
could win a $1,000 scholarship


(savings bond) to help with a
college education.
Once the cabbage head ma-
tures, students take a picture
either holding it or standing
near it. The teacher sends the
picture to Bonnie Plants, and
the student becomes eligible
to win the savings bond. The
school also keeps documenta-
tion about the garden and its
growth.
TES extends a big thank-
you to Bonnie Plants for the
donation of the plants.

Valencia Community Col-
lege has added a new site to its
list of conference and meeting
venues a 17,000-square foot
lakefront facility (Building 8)
located on the college's West
Campus on South Kirkman
Road.
The facility has a large, open
space for conferences, meet-
ings and community events,
and can seat 320 people for
formal banquets or 400 peo-
ple in theater-style seating.
There will be a public ribbon-
cutting ceremony to celebrate
the grand opening on March
31 at 4:30 p.m., followed by
a reception and building tours
until 7:30 p.m.
Designed by Hunton Brady
Architects, the building also
includes a studio for Valen-
cia's architecture program and


a commercial-sized instruc-
tional kitchen for its culinary
program.
It is also a LEED-certified
green building for its environ-
mentally friendly characteris-
tics. LEED certification recog-
nizes building performance in
five key areas: sustainable site
development, water savings,


energy efficiency, materials
selection and indoor environ-
mental quality.
The new meeting space

The dinner served as a fol-
low-up to the toy drive NHS
organized earlier during the
school year.


Pictured during a Freshman Mentoring Program class at Ocoee High are' (1-r) Maritza
Lopez, Dylan Lucas, Christine Lam, Dominique Williams, Shruti Sharma, Daniel Michaud,
Rayeisha Lowe-Chin.


Mentoring freshmen
The Freshman Mentoring
Program is designed to help
connect all freshmen to Ocoee
High School, starting on the
first day of school. It also pro-
vides a supportive environ-
ment that helps each student
ease their adjustment from
middle school to high school..
FMP is a comprehensive
transition program that pro-
vides each freshman with a
support group that consists
of FMP student mentors, a
staffulty advisor and their guid-
ance counselor. The team pro-
vides an ongoing orientation
process that enables fresh-
men to become familiar with
expectations, policies, proce-
dures, programs and traditions
at Ocoee High.
Each day during the week
has a specific focus and each
mentor has taken on the re-
sponsibility of leading one
day per week in their respec-
tive classes. On Mondays,
the mentors lead their groups
in "Talk Time," in which they
discuss topics from school,


the community, the U.S. or
the world. Tuesday are Tutor
Day when they incorporate the
AVID strategies of question-
ing so the students can assist
each other and mentors can
assist the whole group with
their academics.
Wednesday are desig-
nated as Book Day. All FMP
classes are reading The Code:
The Five Secrets to Teen Suc-
cess by Mawi Asgedom. The
mentors facilitate reading, dis-
cussions and activities that go
along with the book. The other
books planned for FMP this
yearare We Beat the Street by
Sampson Davis, George Jen-
kins, and Rameck Hunt and
Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie
by David Lubar.
On Thursday, all FMP
classes participate in Chal-
lenge Day. Depending on the
time of the year, they are either
having kickball tournaments,
academic challenges or vo-
cabulary challenges. Each has
the FMP classes involved in
friendly competition with other
FMP classes.
Finally, Friday is Game/Ac-


tivity Day when students par-
ticipate in team-building activi-
ties facilitated by the mentors.
In order to be an FMP men-
tor, students must be in good
academic standing, pass both
the math and reading FCATs
and not have disciplinary ac-
tion within the past year. Men-
tors participate in initial train-
ing over the summer and then
weekly throughout the school
year.
Besides facilitating FMP
classes daily, mentors par-
ticipate in welcoming incoming
ninth-graders during Freshman
Fun Friday, which is held a few
weeks prior to school starting.
Mentors are available to assist
during Knight Fever, OHS's
open house, held the Friday
before the start of school. FMP
mentors also communicate
with the freshmen in their FMP
class over the summer, as a
way to help ease the transi-
tion.
There is one mentor per five
freshmen. The faculty coordi-
nator for the program is social
studies teacher Kim Baker.

Rob Tenaglia, one of the owners of Conway's Smokehouse Grill and Pub, prepares to
serve some smokey samples from the menu.


Conway's is smoking up some

tasty 'cue in Winter Garden


By Mary Anne Swickerath

There has been a real lack of
barbecue restaurants in West
Orange County since Choctaw
Willy's closed in Winter Gar-
den nearly three years ago, but
Conway's Smokehouse Grill
and Pub has come to the res-
cue. The new eatery opened a
little less than two months ago
in the Publix shopping center
at the corner of Stoneybrook
West Parkway and Marsh Road
in Winter Garden, and 'cue lov-
ers can rejoice.
Conway's smokes its pork
and beef brisket for 12 hours
over seasoned hardwoods, low
and slow. Ribs go in the smok-
er for four.hours, and chicken
smokes for two hours and
all these meats offer the deep
flavor to prove it.
"The food sells the place it-
self," said Rob Tenaglia, a Dr.
Phillips resident who owns the
restaurant with his father, Bob,
and wife, Cheryl.
"We smoke all our meats
daily," Rob added, "so when we
run out of meat, we're done for
the day."
The extensive menu features
the popular Belt Buster Platters
with a choice of a half or whole
chicken, smoked turkey, pulled
pork, beef brisket, smoked ham
or smoked sausage from $9.99-
$12.99. There's also a fried cat-


fish dinner platter available.
These platters come with corn
bread and a choice of two sides
(eight are listed on the menu:
green beans with bacon, cole
slaw, mac and cheese, French
fries, fried okra, collard greens,
baked beans and a side salad).
You can also create your own
combo of two or three meats,-
if you like to taste a variety on
your plate.
The traditional meat sand-
wiches are available in two
sizes, regular for $3.99 and
jumbo for $4.99. For 75 cents
extra, Conway's will add slaw
to the bun.
In addition, $5.99 daily lunch
specials include a side and a
drink.
An unusual item is the
smoked-then-fried wings sea-
soned with five choices of
sauces from sweet to hot. These
should prove popular in the bar
side of restaurant.
Conway's is a generous
2,800-square-foot space, with
68 seats and 15 barstools and
it is decorated with Southern
and Midwestern state flags in
keeping with the state and city
names on the menu: Memphis
pulled pork, Texas hot link
sausages, Alabama bold sauce,
South Carolina mustard sauce,
East Carolina vinegar sauce,
Texas beef brisket and hot link
sausage, St. Louis-style ribs,


smoked Virginia ham, Missis-
sippi catfish and Florida key
lime pie.
The bar, which features four
- flat-screen televisions and
good prices on both domestic
and imported beer (20 bottled
varieties and six on draft), as
well as Sutter Home wines, is
a popular spot on Thursdays
at 7 p.m. for the weekly poker
tournaments.
"We're drawing about 30-40
, people for the Texas hold 'em
tournaments," said Rob. "It's
working out really well."
The Tenaglias aren't new-
comers to the restaurant busi-
ness, having been involved in
it for the past 20 years. They
used to own and operate Kitty
O'Shea's pub in Lake Buena
Vista before selling it and buy-
ing into the Conway's concept,
one developed in Orlando by S.
Douglas Colson.
"We believe in the concept,
and we plan to open eight more
in the next 10 years," said Rob,
who earned a degree in hospi-
tality management from the
University of Central Florida.
This family will obviously be
smoking' for a long time.
Conway's is open daily from
11 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more in-
formation, call 407-654-3495.
