Colony Plaza will



be coming down


The Ocoee City Commission
approved the hiring of a
demolition company last week
to take down both towers of
the old hotel.
By Mary Anne Swickerath
It has been a long time coming, but the der-
elict Colony Plaza in Ocoee will-be demolished
in the coming months.
At last week's City Commission meeting, the
elected officials agreed to hire Central Environ-
fnental Services Inc. for a fee of $684,100 plus
bonds of $10,305 to take down the old hotel
at the corner of West Colonial Drive and Old
Winter Garden Road, a facility that dates back
to the mid 1960s.
Commissioner Rusty Johnson commented
during the discussion that he wanted to see this
demolition take place at soon as possible.
S"I've been sitting here and looking at this for
a long time." he said, adding that he didn't want
to wait for the hotel's demise one more day.
City Manager Rob Frank told The West Or-


ange Times that the first step in demolition will
be taking the asbestos out of the two towers.
The company doing the work will probably do
the asbestos remediation in one tower then take
down that tower before doing the same thing
to the second tower. If that is the plan, the first
tower could be ready for demolition in 30-45
days, followed by the second tower in the next
30-45 days.
The money for the demolition will come
from the Community Redevelopment Agency
(CRA) the city put in place several years ago.
The CRA makes it possible for a municipal-
ity to collect taxes in a specific area that needs
improvement. These taxes can be then used to
improve the area.
The Ocoee CRAstretches along West Colonial
Drive from Clarke Road to the Western Beltway.

an eyesore at the corner of West Colonial
Drive and Maguire Road in Ocoee. The

Prevent drowning take steps to promote water safety


Local parents hope the
story of their loss might
save another child.


By Kathy Aber
Jacob Michael Lash would have been 5 on March
26. He was the victim of an accidental drowning
and died just before Thanksgiving in 2005 four
months before his second birthday.
His parents and sisters now know how quickly any.
day can become tragic.
By telling the story of Jake's drowning, Ocoee
residents Kip and Donna Lash hope to protect other
children from his fate and other families from hor-
rible grief and loss.
"Our whole life completely changed that day,"
said Kip. "Accidents are always going to happen,
but this could be prevented. I'd give anything not to
have my family go through this."
In retrospect, the Lashes have learned many things
that could have saved Jake's life. Teaching a child
to swim, even an infant, is One of the best defenses
against drowning.
In addition, a barrier fence, which they thought
they couldn't afford, might have also prevented

Jake."
.'When the Lash family moved to a neighborhood
near Windermere in 2005, everyone was excited
with the new house, the Florida sunshine and the fun
they would have in the pool and spa.
The family had already relocated once from Ohio
to Colorado, so the promise of a backyard pool
helped sell the idea of another move to their tx wo
daughters, ages 4 and 11. Not everything went as
planned. When they arrived in Florida, the Lashes
ia'd to postpone some household improvements be-
cause the house in Colorado was still unsold.
One of the improvements was a barrier fence be-
tween the house and the pool. However, they weren't
too concerned because Jake had just begun to crawl
and was not very mobile.
"We never even thought about swimming lessons
because he was so young, and we thought we'd al-
ways be out there," said Donna.
The girls loved the pool, and their parents super-
vised them closely. The doors to the pool area had
deadbolts, andthe couple kept them locked at all
times. Besides, Jake was never near the pool alone.
Donna used the pool area to smoke and always was
conscientious about locking the doors behind her.

a circle exercise that emphasized what they had just discussed.

Mentors teaching ethics principles

to' West Orange High freshmen


The Winter .
Garden school
has the largest
volunteer-led
mentoring
program in the U.S.

By Amy Quesinberry
/
Last week's topic was
"teamwork," and the students
in this particular West Orange
High classroom were giving
their own assessment of what
the word means.
Volunteer mentor Marcio
Pacheco asked one girl how
she and her boyfriend used,
teamwork in their relation-
ship. She laughed and said
matter-of-factly, "The *'am.
didn't work."


Lighthearted yet important
conversations such as this are
taking place one day a week in
West Orange's new mentoring
program called Teach One to
Lead One (TILl). It focuses
on building character and
leadership in teenagers, deal-
ing with one ethical principle
each week. In addition to last
week's session on teamwork,
program participants will
learn about respect, integrity,
self-control, courage, excel-
lence, compassion, humility,
enthusiasm and honor.
The program was launched
in February, and each week, 56
mentors lead the 509 students
in groups of two to five teens
with several small groups to-
gether in a classroom.
To allow others to observe
the mentoring program
action. West Oranee High


opened its classroom doors
last week to Robin Harshbarg-
er, chief program officer of
Teach One to Lead One, a na-
tional program based in Geor-
gia. The West Orange Times;
Rosita Riley, area superinten-
dent of Orange County Public
Schools; and other OCPS offi-
cials were also in attendance.
The community coordina-
tor, Mack McLaughlin, was
on hand as well to answer
questions.
Two mentors, Edward John-
son and Lisa Morrison, shared
their reasons for participating
in TIL1, and three of the stu-
dents in the program spoke of
its positive influences.
The mentors are from all
segments of the community.

Focus attention on water safety to save lives


Warm spring weather and the change
to daylight savings time means chil-
dren will be spending more time out-
side in the Florida sunshine. They
will be swimming and playing in and
around Central Florida's beautiful
lakes, rivers and beaches, as well as
ponds, spas and swimming pools.
Teaching the importance of- swim
survival training is a key to reducing
childhood water-related tragedies.
The Central
Florida Drown-
ing Prevention and .
Water Safety Task
Force reminds par-
ents and grandpar-
ents that drowning
is still the No. 1
cause of acciden-
tal death in chil-
dren under the Age
of 4.
Eighty-four per-
cent of drownings
occur in swimming
pools and bathtubs. As soon as chil-
dren are mobile and crawling, water is
a danger.
The task force reminds parents:
"Children aren't drown-proof."
Adult supervision is a must. Never
leave a child alone or unsupervised
by' a pool, spa or any body of water.
Drowning often occurs when an adult


is away from the area for just a min-
ute. A responsible adult should be des-
ignated as a "water watcher."
Pools should be surrounded by a
wall or fence barrier at least five feet
high. Alarms can add an extra layer of
protection to alert adults that children
have gone into the pool area.
Teach children to swim. Swimming
survival skills are a necessity for Flor-
ida children. If all other layers of pro-
tection fail, surviv-
al skills can save a
child's life.
There are many
B local pools and
facilities offer-
ing swim lessons.
By calling 2-1-1,
a Community Re-
source Line pro-
vided by Heart
of Florida United
Way, or 407-839-
4357, residents can
find out where to
go for swim lessons.
Keep a cell phone or cordless phone
at the pool for emergency use.
Learn CPR. When a drowning oc-
curs, every second counts.
Drowning is preventable. By imple-
menting a few simple strategies and
teaching children to swim, the whole
family can have safe fun in the water.

Letters to the editor


Why do we Relay?


Editor,
As I sat down to write an article on why we
do the West Orange Relay for Life, I was try-
ing to decide what it should be about when my
wife sent me the following in an e-mail:*
"Mom called this morning and her doctor
told her based on the 'pet scan' she is done
with chemo. She will still have to have her
blood monitored closely for the near future
but no more treatments at this time. What a
difference a year makes. It was Feb. 26, 2008,
when she first went in the hospital. She want-
ed me to let you know."
What a difference a year truly does make. I
still remember the news and seeing my wife,
Sandi, devastated at the thought that she could
lose her mother, her best friend, really. Her
mom, Jea-
nette, had
been diag-
nosed with
an aggres-
sive form of
cancer. For
a moment,
time stood
still. How
could this
be? Then,
suddenly,
time sped
up faster
than nor-
mal. I re-
member her
saying she Jeanette White (left) celebrate
wouldn't her granddaughter, Jennifer /
do chemo; ter, Sandi Armbruster.
she couldn't
stand the
idea of the
nausea. As a nurse at Health Central for nearly
three decades, she had seen it all and she knew
what chemo did to people.
I remember leaving work to go to be with
the family as she underwent exploratory sur-
gery. I remember standing on the landing at
Health Central with my wife and father-in-law
when the surgeon said it was everywhere and
that the best thing to do would be to make her
comfortable at home. We stood there, in tears,
not really sure of what we were going to do.
Later she would learn that she ovarian can-
cer and the cancer was also in the abdomen
and liver. Then Dr. Iyengar, who had literally
saved my father-in-law's life years earlier for
something totally different, said she wanted
her to try the chemo and she listened. The first
bouts of chemo went pretty well with few side
effects. Of course, her pure white hair started
to fall out and I remember her asking Sandi
to make her a hair appointment and me say-
ing I would cut it for her. So we all went out
on the back porch, and I gave her a haircut.
The funny part was that she actually looked
good bald. Not many women can really pull
that off, but she did, f
Along the way came some good news that
the large cell cancer was disappearing, and
now they wanted to do surgery again, which
this time proved successful. Then along came
the next set of chemo treatments to' fight th6
small cell cancer. This time the chemo had
many side effects, so daily visits to the doctor
became part of her routine. But by now Jea-
nette had decided it was too early to leave her
grandbabies, so she did what she had to do,
,and here we are a year later with, unbelievable


es
Ar


news.
The year passed in the blink of an eye. One
of the most difficult times for me came when
she asked me to write her eulogy and to preside
over her funeral. It isn't that she is a pessimist.
If you know her, you know that she just likes
to have things set and ready to go; she likes to
do the planning. During the time that things
didn't look good, I tried over and over to put
the words on paper but couldn't do it. She is
my second mother, and this was a difficult
task at best. I would be driving down the road
and trying to think of what to say and would
just end up in tears, which was bad for me, but
particularly distressing to those who I would
sit next to at red lights, wondering who this
blubbering man was next to them. I remember
thinking that this could be our last Thanksgiv-
ing togeth-
er with the
grandkids
or our last
Christmas.
Each event
had that
cloud of
being the
last this
or the last
that, and
yet all we
could do
was move
forward.
Now,
here we
s being a cancer survivor with are a year
mbruster centerr) and daugh- later, thou-
sands of


prayers
and dozens
of treat-
ments and we find out that the treatment has
worked (and the prayers too!) and we have
more time than we could have imagined that
day on the landing in the hospital. My daugh-
ter still has her MoMo, and my wife still has
her mom. As for me, I get to see three genera-
tions of women who love each other, and who
I love, together for another day. Whatever
tomorrow might bring, the fact that we have
today, long after our last today should have
passed, is why we Relay for Life. It makes
a difference, and you can make a difference.
Please join us as weI get ready for another
wonderful event. Come to the meetings and
get involved!

you can make a difference with the W.O. Re-
lay for Life that is happening at Ocoee High

The Lakeview High School senior class
play is the three-act comedy How Very Eng-
lish. Cast members include Blanche Berry,
Geraldine Kennedy, Mable Lawson, Mary El-

John B. Rodgers Jr., former attorney of
Winter Garden, has been commissioned a
lieutenant (j.g.) in the U.S. Naval Reserve. In
high school, he participated in football and
track and was Florida high school debating
champion in 1930.
Edwin H. Pounds of Ocoee has been pro-
moted from first lieutenant to captain in the
U.S. Army Air Corps. He has been stationed
at Myrtle Beach, S.C.

The Charlotte Hornets and the Chattanooga
Lookouts have arrived to start spring training
at Walker Field. The Chamber of Commerce
will sponsor a game between Chattanooga
and Richmond that will be a benefit to raise
money for the grandstand building fund.

35 years ago
The West Orange Junior Service League
held a fund-raiser in the form of a square dance
on the tennis courts next to Windermere Town-


Hall with Bert Roper as the caller. An enthu-
siastic (if not too adept) crowd discovered a
neglected form of recreation, and everyone re-
ally let themselves go. A few of the less hardy
dropped by the wayside, but all enjoyed Bob
Davis' barbecued chicken.

30 years ago
Editorial: For those who have followed the
saga of the West Orange Branch YMCA from
its modest beginnings about a decade ago, it is
exciting to see the organization on the thresh-
old of better facilities. From its initial setup at
College Park Methodist Church, it moved to
the old Winter Garden Youth Center, then to
the Ramada Inn West, the KOA Campground
and, more recently, to a house in the Beulah
area made available by Mary V. Tanner. Now
the Y has a 10-acre parcel of land situated
within walking distance of West Orange High
School.

20 years ago
Duke Crittendon and Tom West took cream
pies in the face at the Leukemia Society's Ce-
lebrity Waiters Luncheon at Isleworth, but it
was all for a good cause and a lot of money
was raised. "We were astonished at both the
turnout and the tremendous generosity of the
guests," said Kim Barley, president of the soci-
ety. Winter Garden Mayor Bob Barber, Ocoee
Mayor Tom Ison and Windermere Mayor Bob
Pleus were Keystone Cops in charge of law
and order.

Daisy's Children's Boutique celebrates

1st anniversary with expansion


Daisy Mitchell, a 33-year-old
entrepreneur and Winter Garden
resident, is celebrating her first
year in business this month and
recently announced she is ex-
panding her enterprise.
Mitchell's shop, Daisy's Chil-
dren's Boutique and Toy Store,
has been featured in numerous
publications that highlighted
how the business specializes in
environmentally friendly edu-
cational toys and organic infant
layettes and plush toys. Mitch-
ell, who has a master's degree
in education and is certified to
teach in Florida, said that every
toy she sells must meet certain
criteria.
"Besides being safe toys,
these toys must be open-ended
toys, in which the possibilities
are endless, and as time goes
by, a child's progress is measur-
able," said Mitchell, .who added
that she has read every Barefoot
book she sells. "Even an infant's
book has to have a story line."
When asked how her business
is doing, Mitchell said: "The lack
of foot traffic on South Main
Street is a concern for my hus-
band and me. I feel very blessed


to have had the opportunity to
build close relationships with
my customers, many of whom
have become close friends. My
dream is to have my toy store
and the new Kid's Workshop in
the small cottage behind the shop
to be a place where children can
make their own memories."
As an educator, Mitchell said
she believes that given the right
tools, all children can learn.
"I purchased this property
because I wanted to offer art
classes for children, but the
timing wasn't right, and now
that more people recognize
my branding and have come in
contact with me, I feel ready to
initiate classes once again this
spring," she said.
Haley Moffet, a 9-year old
Windermere resident, was the
first student to sign up for the
earring- and bracelet-making
class last month. Renny Wood-
worth, a local resident and own-
er of Renny and Tiffany Unique
Hand-made Jewelry, served as
the instructor.
Mitchell said she hopes to see
downtown Winter Garden con-
tinue to blossom and grow with


her business. Last Saturday, Dai-
sy's Children's Boutique began
offering craft classes for children
ages 4 and up. The classes will
continue every other Saturday at
9:30 a.m. This month, Mitchell
will help children design Easter/
spring "chic" eco-tote bags.
"We are also looking forward
to hosting our first birthday party
in April, when the birthday girl
and five of her closest friends
will design bracelets made of
sterling silver, glass beads and
Swarovski crystals," Mitchell
said. "We spent a week restor-
ing the small cottage in the back
of the store and turning it into
a miniature doll house in the
middle of an English-style gar-
den."
Daisy's Children's Boutique
will also offer a summer camp
for first- through. sixth-grade
girls starting in June.
"I am really excited and look-
ing forward to all of the new
changes," Mitchell said.
Daisy's Children's Boutique
and Toy Store is located at 103
S. Main St. For more details, call
407-654-1748 or visit www.dai-
syboutiqueandtoys.com.

no ramp to slide down, no stairs
to race up, no sandpit beneath
the boat's bow to sit in.
The giant ark which was

on the playground of the First
United Methodist Church of
Winter Garden was de-
stroyed when the oak came
crashing down in December,

* the best investment under the sun
* High value tax credits


It was his first day on a new
job, and Pastor Tim Grosshans
wasted no time making his
mark at the First Baptist
Church of Winter Garden. His
first item of business was to re-
paint the stripes in the church
parking lot. Enlisting the other
staff members, he rolled up his
sleeves and got to work.
According to Grosshans, the
parking lot is the one area that
every member experiences, so
it seemed the perfect place to
begin.
"It allowed me to say to the
whole church, 'We are getting
started.'"
*Grosshans painted over and
eliminated the "Pastor" re-
served parkilig space, niaking
it clear that he is "one of us" to
the congregation.
"I wanted everyone to know
that all of the pastors are ready
to work hard," he added.
Prior to joining the pastoral
team at FBCWG, Pastor Tim
has provided consulting ser-
vices to churches, pastors and
other ministries. His experience
and service span from small to
very large organizations. He

He has told the congrega-
tion it is his intention that the
church will be known for Bib-
lical teaching and incredible
music.
When asked about this,
Pastor Tim said: "I have been

music, and people want to
know the Bible. It is our plan
to excel in both."

ciples of Rotary.
After listening to Mattson's
talk at the Feb. 24 meeting,
Windermere Rotary members

be donated to the Health Cen-
tral School Nurses Program,

dren's Ranch.
Many Rotarians volunteered
to sell raffle tickets at various
community venues with a
prize of a 19-foot Regal boat
and trailer or $10,000. Their
goal is to sell' 3,000 tickets at
$10 each.

Winter Garden in Plein Air opening March 13


The Winter Garden Heritage
Foundation, in partnership with
Creald6 School of Art, presents
Winter Garden in Plein Air in
the historic Edgewater Hotel,
99 West Plant St., Winter Gar-
den, from March 13 to May
3. The exhibition features the
work of Creald6 master land-
scape painter Tom Sadler and
students from his fall 2008
plein air painting class.
The artwork depicts the cul-
tural and architectural heritage
of downtown Winter Garden,
a community that has recently
been celebrated for its architec-
tural integrity and positive man-
agement of economic growth
and development. Plein air is a
French expression used to de-
scribe the act of painting out-
doors. An opening reception for
the exhibit will be held this Fri-
day, March 13, from 5:30-7:30
p.m. The public is welcome to
attend. Exhibited paintings will
be available for sale.
This is the third collaborative
project of the Heritage Founda-
tion and Creald( School of Art,
a 34-year-old visual arts orga-
nization in Winter Park. The
administrations of both orga-
nizations are interested in pur-
suing further joint projects and
are investigating the prospect
of introducing several painting-
and photography-based classes
from Creald6's curriculum to

Winter Garden in 2010.
The Winter Garden Heritage
Foundation uses a variety of ex-
hibits and programs to create
awareness of and appreciation
for the city's heritage. This is
the fifth exhibition the Heritage
Foundation has hosted in the
lobby of the historic hotel.
"We are fortunate that the
owners of the hotel allow us to
use this public space for dis-
play purposes," said exhibit
curator Kay Cappleman. "Ex-
hibits such as this one-cause


viewers to take notice of what.
makes this community unique.
Not only will visitors observe
beautiful works of art, but also,
hopefully, the paintings will
foster a desire to maintain the
heritage, character and ambi-
ence of our historic downtown
for future generations."
Since moving to Orlando
in 1983, artist Tom Sadler
has dedicated his painting ef-
forts towards capturing the
light, color and mood of the
Central Florida landscape. He


received a Bachelor of Fine
Arts from Auburn University
and studied oil painting at the
University of Alabama and the
School of Visual Arts in New
York. His work is represented
in private collections across
the United States and abroad
and is exhibited throughout
the state, including permanent
collections in the State Capi-
tol, Orlando City Hall and the
Maitland Art Center. Sadler is
an associate faculty member at
Creald6 School of Art.

paring for its 30-year high school reunion Aug.

ates are asked to contact the reunion committee
at 1979Evans@comcast.net.


In our services this past week, we focused
upon the story of Jesus calming the storm
that almost sunk the boat he was in with his
disciples. Beyond the amazing demonstra-
tion of his power, his ability to sleep in the
midst of the crisis equally impressed us.
He had such a confidence in his Father that
even with the howling winds, rising waves,
and pounding rain, he could sleep.
I don't know about you, but I sure could
use some of that confidence and peace.
The reality of our present storm has begun
to take its toll. Worry and fear can be
seen in so many faces. The President and
Congress appear to be frantically fighting
the storm with little success (other than
spending a ton more money) and a growing
anxiety.
As I acknowledge the reality of the storm, I
also pray I will acknowledge the reality of
the God we worship. He is one who spoke
things into being from nothing. And he is
the one who with one short phrase can calm
a raging storm. So, as we work to bring
our boat safely to shore, we will need to
.work hard, but we don't need to panic.
To remind us of this reality, I encourage
you to take some time this week and get
out into nature. The Bible speaks about
how God's power can be seen in the things
he has created. It declares Him. So get
away from all the things we have made,
and that too often impress us, and spend
some time pondering the truly amazing -
God's creation.

Drowning prevention


The morning of the accident,
S.... Kip and Donna sat on the porch
and talked about decorating
Jake's room. They discussed
installing the pool barrier as
soon as the Colorado house
sold. When they finished talk-
ing and went inside, they were
distracted and believe that they
forgot to lock the door.
Later that morning, Kip was
home watching Jake and suf-
fering from the stomach flu.
While making repeated trips
to the bathroom, Kip continu-
ally checked on Jake, who was
in front of the television play-
ing cheerfully with his toys.
Then, Jake was nowhere to be
found.
Kip searched feverishly and,
at last, looked toward the pool
and saw a small child floating
face down in the circular spa
attached to the pool.
At first, Kip thought and
feared the child might be a
neighbor's because he was so
sure the doors were locked and
Jake couldn't be outside. Be-
sides, Jake had never opened
a door before.
Kip knew CPR and tried to
resuscitate Jake as soon as he
pulled him from the, spa. He
continued CPR until the para-
medics arrived and rode in the
back of the sheriff's car to the
hospital as paramedics tried
to save Jake. But all efforts
failed.
"The worst call was telling
my wife, Donna," said Kip.
"She didn't want to believe
me."
In giving Donna the news
on the phone, Kip broke down
crying, and the police officer
had to take over and explain
what had happened.
"Seeing her come to the hos-
pital just added to the horror of
Sit," said Kip.
Then the Lashes had to give
their daughters, the grandpar-
ents, other family and friends
the sad news of Jake's death.
Donna remembers a social
worker advised them: "This
will destroy your family, if
you let it."
"I'll never forgive myself,"
said Kip. "I could have done a
better job of keeping Jake in
the house."
Since the accident, Kip said,
his relationship with his wife
and daughters has changed.


At first, he suffered from
depression. He couldn't say
Jake's name without crying and
had put his life on hold.
The house had too many bad
memories, so the Lashes sold it
and moved to Ocoee and into a
new home without a pool.
When the Lashes' young-
est daughter wanted to start
swim lessons, Donna forced
Kip to take her.. At first, he
resisted he didn't want to
go near a swimming pool. But
the repeated trips to Southwest
Aquatics, where, their daugh-
ter is now on the swim team,
have helped him begin to move
forward.
When Kip asked Southwest
Aquatics Executive Director
Kathy Baldwin how he could
help prevent another family
from going through the loss of
a child to drowning, she sug-
gested the Lashes tell their sto-
ry to The West Orange Times.
The Lashes agreed to the
interview, saying: "If we can
affect one family to not go
through this, it will be worth it.
Something better has to come,
out of this."
Each year, children drown
in wading pools, hot tubs, toi-
lets, pet water bowls, coolers,
ponds, ditches and buckets.
They can drown in a matter of
seconds, and most deaths occur
when the telephone,' doorbell
or household chores distract
the parent or caregiver.
According to the Office of
Vital Statistics, the Florida
Department of Health, Florida
leads the nation in the drown-
ings of children under, age 5.
Drowning is the No. 1 cause
of accidental death in children
ages 0-4 and the second leading
cause of death in all children.
Less than a month ago, a
1-year-old boy drowned in a
backyard pool in the Dr. Phil-
lips area.
While attending a support
group after Jake's death, the
Lashes met a 13-year-old girl
who was babysitting when a
child drowned under her care.
During the interview last
week, Baldwin related the story
of a local mother whose nan-
ny left two children, 4 and 20
months, alone in a bathtub and
the younger child drowned.
The Central Florida Drown-
ing Prevention Task Force was


(Continued from 1A)


formed in 2004 by Mayor Rich
Crotty and chaired by Orange
County Commissioner Linda
Stewart. The task force con-
sists of Orange, Osceola and
Seminole county governments
and health departments, Dis-
trict Nine medical examiners,
the EMS office, Central Florida
YMCA, Southwest Aquatics,
the Gift of Swimming, Every
Child A Swimmer, Children's
Safety Village, city of Orlando,
Boys and Girls Clubs of Cen-
tral Florida and 2-1-1 Commu-
nity Resources through Heart
of Florida United Way.
The task force recommends
adult supervision as the most
effective drowning prevention
measure. At any gathering in
and around water or a swim-
ming pool, choose one adult as
the "designated child watcher"
and rotate the job so there is
always someone responsible
for actively watching the chil-
dren.
Second, install a safety fence
around pools and ponds. Pools
should be surrounded on all
four sides by a wall or fence
barrier that is at least five feet
high. Bars or slats in the bar-
riers should be less than five
inches apart, and spas should
have a properly secured safety
cover.
Third, learn CPR. An adult
who knows CPR should be
present when children are
swimming.
Fourth, a cordless or cell
phone should be in the pool
area for emergency use only -
to call 911 while giving CPR.
And fifth, if all of these
barriers break down, children
should know survival-swim-
ming skills so they can roll
over onto their back and float'
until help arrives.
Children can learn these sur-
vival skills as soon as they start
to crawl or become mobile.
To teach these survival tech-
niques, Southwest Aquatics of-
fers a program called PediaS-
wim and the local YMCAs
have a similar program called
SafeStart.
. This is the first of two ar-
ticles to emphasize ways to
prevent drowning. The second
article will describe various
swimming instruction pro-
grams offered in West Orange
County.


Roasting and toasting Teresa Jacobs
Former District 1 Orange County Commissioner Teresa Jacobs was the subject of the
West Orange Chamber's Red Bandana Barbecue Roast and Toast last Thursday at Wild
West in Ocoee. Serving as emcee was Scott Maxwell of the 'Orlando Sentinel.' Roast-
ers were Bud Hedinger, Karen Ardaman, Rich Maladecki, Stina D'Uva and Bill Cowles.
Toasters were Lynette Reynolds, Graciela Noriega-Jacoby, Windermere Mayor Gary
Bruhn, Guy Haggard, Dick Spears and Scott Justice. Jacobs was a good sport and took
both the ribbing and the praise well. Above, l-r, Hedinger, Ardaman, Jacobs and D'Uva.
Despite a lot of coaxing, Jacobs did not reveal her future political plans.


Mentors
the Department of Business &
Professional Regulation, and
.Morrison is a stay-at-home
mom. Others include church
representatives, .businessmen
and women, parents, husband-
and-wife teams and teachers..
Johnson, who has a ninth-
grade ,daughter in the pro-
gram, said: "I think it's tre-
mendous.... These principles
are tools in the tool box. Some
students work with the only
tool they have; they only use
a hammer. The principles give
them opportunities to use a
screwdriver and a drill.
"It calibrates their moral
compass," he said.
Morrison said, "This is one
of the most important things
I've ever done in my life."
She told the Times she
joined the mentoring pro-
gram because she saw a need
for "more parental and adult
involvement in the high school
level.
"Although high-schoolers
are older and more indepen-
dent, they still need caring
adults in their lives," she
added.


Morrispn has an eighth-
grade son and a sixth-grade
daughter at Bridgewater Mid-
dle who will attend WOHS,
"I have been reminded that
every teenager is an individual
with something to share with
the world.... We sometimes
label kids as one thing or
another, but every child is a
gift, and they also have a gift
to share with the world."
According to Harshbarger,
who traveled from Acworth,
Ga., to review West Orange's
program, this school has the
largest volunteer-led project in
the country. Schools incorpo-
rating this program are seeing
improvements in graduation
rates, grades and attendance.
One West Orange student,
Natalie, said she likes the pro-
gram because the mentors are
great and they discuss impor-
tant topics.
"It makes me feel bet-
ter,;" she said. "It makes my
Wednesday better."
Esteban, another participant,
said, "I think it allows for a
great opportunity to reinforce
what we learn at home."


--- (Continued from lA)

WOHS Assistant Princi-
pal Murray.Sawyer said at
last week's gathering that the
school's mission is "Personal-
ized education for each indi-
vidual student."
"When you bring this pro-
gram into the classroom," he
said, "you are personalizing
the individual education."
He and Principal James Lar-
sen are enthusiastic about the
community outpouring of sup-
port and about the numbers of
students the lessons touch.
They know that after next
year's program ends, 50 per-
cent of the student population
will have gone through the
program. -
And they can only look
ahead with great expectations
to "the culture that's going to
be on this campus four years
from now" when every student
has learned the concepts of the
12 universal principles that
govern human life princi-
ples these students will carry
with them as members of their
wider communities. And may-
be even as mentors to another
generation of students.

Warrior water polo defends new home pool


The West Orange High water
polo teams have a new home
this year the Southwest

Road. The Warriors posted two
victories there against local ri-
vals last week.
Both the boys and girls teams
,came away with wins against

Lady Warrior defense was led
by junior goalie Adria Bell's

on with goals by seniors Ash-

Rivals West Orange and
Ocoee high schools met on the
baseball diamond last week with
the Wamors winning 8-4. >
SBlake Dieterich pitched for
the win, going six innings while
giving up five hits and one run
and striking out five batters.
Albert Lefran, who went three-
for-four with four RBIs, singled
home a run in the first inning for
an early lead. Ocoee answered
in the bottom of the first with
twq runs on three hits and two
West Orange errors.
In the fifth inning, both teams
traded runs. The Warriors tied
the game with a Christian Co-
burn home run, and Ocoee took
back the lead when Rashid
Mitchell doubled and scored off.

the back of the net.
Inthe second game of the
week, the Ocoee Knights vis-
ited the Warriors at home. The
Knights came out with quick
goals to ignite the crowd, and
the teams ended the first quarter
with a 4-4 tie., The second quar-
ter belonged to the Warriors,
who led 12-5 at the half en route
to a 22-9 victory. Carter, Jona-
than Singh, Smith and Walsh
combined for 23 steals on the
night. Walsh, Robert Sheppard
and Carter were top scorers,.
while Anthony Tompkins scored
his first of the season.
"I think the big key in these
games, besides our defense, was
getting off to a great start," said
Coach Brian Martin. "There
is no question, the difference
between last year's team and


this year's team and the reason
why we are in every game is be-
cause of the passion, intensity
and practice the boys put forth.
There is no question in my mind
.that this team will be one of the
best in the state if they keep it
up."
The Lady Warriors were also
victorious over Ocoee 9-3 with
their defense taking top honors.
Bell had 14 saves on 17 shots,
and Coipel, Macqueeni, Caitlin
Ramsey and Canavan all found
the back of the net.
"The girls played with ex-
treme intensity throughout the
games to dominate the Knights
and Blue Darters," said Coach
Jenny Martin. "I was really
impressed with the passion
the girls showed for the game
and how they executed ev-
erything we had practiced."
West Orange will host another
rival, Olympia, this Thursday,
March 12, at 7:30 p.m. at South-
west Aquatics.

Bay Hill gears up for Arnold Palmer Invitational


The 31 st Arnold Palmer Invi-
tational is scheduled for March
23-29, marking the final stop on
the PGA Tour's Florida swing.
Tiger Woods is the defending
champion of the premier invi-
tational event that features 120
of the game's best players from
around the world.
Host Arnold Palmer relishes
the event's new date and ex-
pects a great field for this year's
invitational. He is nearing his'
80th birthday and doesn't play
golf quite as much as he used
to, but Palmer still has a pas-
sion for the game, still wants to
give back and still enjoys talk-
ing about it, especially when
the tournament that bears his
name is one of the topics.
Played at Palmer's Bay Hill
Club and Lodge, the tourna-
ment takes place this year in a
new slot on the PGA Tour cal-


endar. Palmer said he is expect-
ing another strong field as the
tournament moves to a position
just two weeks before the Mas-
ters Tournament, the year's first
major championship.
"I like the new dates, and it
could make our field stronger,
although we've always en-
joyed having great fields," said
Palmer, winner of 62 PGA Tour
titles, including seven profes-
sional major championships. "I
think being two weeks before
the Masters, that's something
new to talk about, and I like it,
obviously. I'm optimistic that
we'll have a great event."
When asked whether the
new dates would warrant any
changes to the golf course,
Palmer said: "I think we'll
want to speed the greens up just
slightly to give the guys a feel
for faster greens. Since we're

closer to the Masters, we want
to justify guys coming here to
not only compete, but also to
get ready to attack Augusta."
The Champion Course at Bay
Hill Club, converted in 2007 to
a par-70 layout, plays to 7,157
yards with fast fairways lined
by three inches of rough, and
firm greens. Woods won last
year's title after sinking a 25-
foot birdie putt on the 72nd
hole to score a one-stroke vic-
tory over Bart Bryant and win
Palmer's tournament for the
fifth time.
"It will be tough to top that
finish," Palmer said, "but every
year brings something pretty
exciting. We have had great
tournaments, and we are ex-
pecting another great one this
year. The golf course is the best
it's been in a long time."

did they live in the North or
the South, were they free or
a slave, who did they see
and what was it like? Then

paper.' Next, using a feather
and Indian ink, the students

Westbrooke Elementary offers- 4 different after-school
clubs that enhance the learning and creativity for students.
Mrs. Duff, who was aptly named Teacher of the Year for
2008, has her Science Club on Thursday afternoons. The
club has conducted experiments such as making bounc-
ing balls out of glue, Borax and cornstarch to discover
how mixing different amounts of various substances can
result in 3 totally new substances. The club has also ex-
plored the concepts of creating mixtures and solutions us-
ing common household items. They discovered there re-
ally is iron in Total breakfast cereal. Opportunities to learn
about fizzy chemical reactions, bubbles and buoyancy are
yet to come. Pictured are (I-r):(front row) Nate Downing,

- Sunset Park
Letters to the president
Eighteen second-graders at
Sunset Park Elementary wrote
letters to President Obama re-
cently. The letters were on dis-
play earlier this month in the
children's section of the down-
town Orlando Public Library.
The letters ranged from
friendly pen-pal topics to more
serious letters about the need
for lower energy prices.
The class is also on track to
become published authors by
June. Their book is titled Fan-
tastic Writers and Awesome
Leaders. In the book the stu-
dents wrote about the future of
America and ideas they have
to help solve some of the prob-
lems the country is facing.

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


"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do
not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your
hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John
14:27
It seems these days with all the threats of war, im-
morality, rising cost of gas, food, drugs, medical care,
etc. that we lose sight of the fact that God is always
in control. The Bible teaches that we already possess
God's peace.
Do you have doubts about your future? Just take a
look at your past. In Matt. 1:1-17 the Holy Spirit is
making a point. Matthew gives us a picture of Jesus'
lineage. It reads of a not-so-great grandparent list.
If this had been our lineage, most of us would prefer
it not be told! But the Holy Spirit wants us to see that
the common bond between the individuals on this list
was a promise...a promise from heaven that God
would use these people to send His Son.
Why does God give us a testament filled with blunders
and stumbles of His people? Because He knows we,
will stumble, fret, and worry. Because He wants us

to know that when the world goes wild, He stays calm.
Want proof? Read the last name on the list! In spite
of all the slips and blunders, Jesus, the blessed Savior,
the last name on the list, was the first one promised.
The famine couldn't starve God's promise, four hun-
dred years of Egyptian slavery couldn't oppress God's
promise, wilderness wandering couldn't lose God's
promise, Babylonian captivity couldn't stop God's
promise. The promise of the Messiah threads its way
through forty-two generations of "stuff" to bring us
a King, just as promised!
God keeps His promise. Sometimes we just need to
look for ourselves. In the manger, He was there, in
the tomb, He was gone! He is alive, His promises
still hold. The engineer has not abandoned the train.
Nuclear war is no threat to God. A yo-yo economy
does not intimidate the heavens and deranged men
have never derailed the plan. God did and does keep
His promises. Be of good cheer, for God is always
near.
