The cost of
learning to swim
is a small price, if
it can save even
one child from
drowning.

By Kathy Aber

Most parents take precautions
to protect children from falling
down the stairs and burning
themselves on the stove. They
cover electric outlets and teach
them not to talk to strangers.
But some may overlook
how Teal the risk of drowning
is in Florida that water is a
serious danger. Drowning is the
No. 1 cause of accidental death
in children under the age of 4

"I think it's a good thing
that we should move forward
with," said Mayor John Rees.
Brennan agreed, saying,
"It's important for the safety
of the public."
Cameras would likely be
placed at a few of the city's
busiest intersections. Brennan
reported that the greatest num-

section of Daniels Road and

Motorists who cruise
through red lights in Winter
Garden could soon find cita-
tions in their mailboxes.
After Police Chief George
Brennan's presentation on
red-light surveillance cameras
at last Thursday's commission
meeting, city leaders decided
to pursue the technology in an
effort to make Winter Garden's
intersections safer by discour-
aging red-light runners.
The commissioners agreed
to instruct City Manager Mi-
chael Bollhoefer to begin
working on a red-light-camera
ordinance that could be passed


By Amy Quesinberry
Despite the poor economy,
despite the town's water woes,
Oakland is still forging ahead
with its goals for 2009.
Mayor Kathy Stark asked
commissioners and staff,
"What do we want to accom-
plish this year?"
So they told her, taking turns
presenting issues they thought
should be tackled.
In the end, the list from com-
missioners included construct-
ing the water tank, finishing

plan, starting a roads project,

The third time was the
charm for Rosemary Wilsen,
who defeated incumbent Scott
Anderson for the District 2
seat on the Ocoee City Com-
mission last week, after run-
ning against him twice before.
At the end of the day on March
10, the two were so close in
votes neither could be declared
the winner. But after the 351
absentee ballots were counted,
Wilsen outpolled Anderson by


a total of 459 (52 percent) to
400 (48 percent). She received
198 absentee votes to Ander-
sofh's 153 absentees.
The turnout was 17 percent
in District 2, which has a total
of 4,963 registered voters.
Wilsen, who is the social
worker for the West Orange
Christian Service Center in
Ocoee, said during the cam-
paign that she put a high prior-
ity on economic development
within the city, as well'as lis-
tening to citizens.


"I am so very thankful to the
folks of Ocoee who worked
and voted in District 2 for a
new city commissioner," Wils-
en said after her victory. "It is
so wonderful and a joy to have
so much support from family,
friends,.neighbors, the Profes-
sional Firefighters Union of
Ocoee and the business com-
munity. I will make every ef-
fort to serve the best interests
of Ocoee; don't hesitate to
contact me to discuss your
comments and concerns."


New council members to take office


By Kathy Aber


Windermere voters selected
incumbent Bums Hovey and
newcomers Cecil Robinson
and Molly Rose as council
members in the town election
March 10.
A total of 341 votes were
cast, including 78 by absentee
ballots and one by early vot-
ing. The turnout for the elec-
tion represented 18.9 percent
of the 1,889 registered voters
in town.
The vote tally was as fol-
lows: Robinson, 297; Hovey,
207; Rose, 183; and incumbent
John Briggs, 171. In the open
election, the three candidates
with the most votes are elected


to two-year unpaid terms.
The new officials will be
sworn in at the next regular
Town Council meeting, Tues-
day, March 24, after the sitting
council members conclude
the old business items on the
agenda.
Following the election,
Hovey, who won re-election to
a second term, told The West
Orange Times he would like
to thank the residents of Win-
dermere for their continued
support and he looks forward
to serving them for another
two years.
"I am excited to have Cecil
and Molly joining us on the
council, and I look forward
to working with them," said


Hovey.
"While the council's agenda
is not as full or controversial
as it was two years ago, we
may have to make difficult de-
cisions in the coming months
regarding the town's budget,
the potential acquisition of the
Butler Bay property and pos-
sibility of sewer service com-
ing to the town," he added.
Robinson told the Times he
is very pleased to be elected
and very appreciative to the
people who gave him support
and encouragement. /
"The biggest challenge fac-
ing the council is the financial
situation and the budget," said

Buchanan re-elected in Winter Garden


By Michael Laval
Bob Buchanan is begin-
ning a new three-year term
as Winter Garden's District 2
commissioner after defeating
Thomas Gregory in the March
10 municipal election. Buch-
anan took the oath of office at
last Thursday's commission
meeting. *
Buchanan took a large ma-
jority of the nine percent of
District 2 voters who went to


the polls, receiving 227 total
ballots, or 71.6 percent, to
Gregory's 110 votes.
"I would like to express my
deepest thanks to all the peo-
ple who came out and voted in
this very important election,"
Buchanan told The West Or-
ange Times.
"I would also like to thank
all my supporters who walked
for me and the people who
monetarily supported me. It
takes a combined effort of


both to run a successful cam-
paign."
Buchanan said he hopes to
continue helping make Winter
Garden a better city.
"Downtown Winter Garden
has made some great strides
in becoming a great destina-
tion'both for the residents it
has and also for people from-
other towns and cities," he
said. "I really want to work
hard to keep it going in that
'manner."

trained K-9 handlers who with
their specially trained dogs
were deployed to Iraq to locate
and.detect land mines.
On Nov. 13, 2008, while con-
ducting a building search in the
small village' of Buquba with
his K-9, Griffin and another
soldier sustained serious' inju-
ries in an IED explosion. His
dog, Jok, was killed instantly,
The blast left Griffin uncon-
scious with his clothing, boots
and body armor stripped away.
He sustained a concussion, se-
vere bums to his face, broken
orbital bones on each side of
his face, shrapnel damage to the
left side of his body, a collapsed
lung and a deep laceration in the
shin area. Both eardrums were
ruptured, and he has impaired
hearing, which is supposed to
return to normal with time. His
eyesight is 20/60 in his right
eye and 20/200 (legally blind)
in his left eye.
Griffin has had two surgeries
on his face to repair his shat-
tered orbital bones and seven
surgeries on his legs to repair
damage from shrapnel in the
blast. He suffers permanent

face. Titanium plates were in-
stalled where his orbital bones
were shattered to keep his eyes
in place. He is waiting for sur-
gery to repair a detached retina.
He suffers night terrors due to

Opinion


Dear Editor:

I was just reading your timely articles on tips
to stop children from drowning. The articles are
very informative, and the personal story from
the parents who lost their son to drowning is
very moving.
Thank you for providing this important in-
formation.


We don't have a pool, and my daughters don't
know how to swim. They took lessons for one
summer. They are 8 and 5, and we will defi-
nitely get them enrolled in swimming lessons
this summer.

shallow bottom.
3. Don't jump on or push others.
4. Be prepared for an emergency.
Always use approved floatation devices for
your children. Floats and water wings from a toy
store are just that toys.
Learn CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation).
Many organizations provide this training, includ-
ing the Florida Safety Council.
Beach safety precautions:
Check the surf conditions before you enter
the water. Check to see if a warning flag is up or
check with a lifeguard for water conditions, beach
conditions or any other potential hazard.
Stay within a designated swimming area, ide-
ally within visibility of a lifeguard.
Beware of rip currents. If you get caught in
one, don't panic. Just swim parallel to the shore
until you're clear of the current, then swim into
shore. Never try to swim against the current.

A house fixed by love


By Rachel Akers


I never knew whether I would see this day:
a day when my 6-month-old daughter would
be able to play in our backyard, I could oper-
ate a hair dryer and my washing machine at the
same time without short circuiting our electrical
system, and I could wash and dry laundry and
not dread the real possibility of soiling our clean
.garments from working in an unsanitary and
extremely hazardous laundry room. But, thank-
fully, the day has come, and my eyes have been
opened to the collective power of this commu-
nity and a local church and its students. This ar-
ticle is a love letter to those who sacrificed their
comforts, finances and time to change the little
house at 139 N. Highland Ave. in Winter Gar-
den and the family my family that lives
inside.
Little did I know but the unfathomable gift
my family would receive actually started being
wrapped (or unwrapped, depending on how you
look at it) one year ago. I was two months pregnant
with our first child, weak from intense morning
sickness and mood swings, and was walking our
dog in the backyard of our home when suddenly
I was embarrassingly overcome with sadness and
despair. Staring at mold on the courtyard walls
and cement floor (which I had slipped on earlier
that week), rotting wood on our gables and peel-
ing paint that revealed an even more depressing
exterior, I thought to myself: What did we get
ourselves into?
When my husband, Mark and I purchased this
1945 home, we were filled with excitement over
the endless possibilities of how we could make
this house a home. But that was then, when the.
economy and real estate were booming, our jobs
were profitable, I didn't have health issues, and
we didn't have a newborn on the way. Fast for-
ward to February 2008, and the outlook was much
different: I was a professional at home, unable
to do much work because of disabling morning
sickness and suffering with herniated disk issues
in my back (which added to our already sizeable
amount of debt).
Despite our challenges (and maybe because of
them) my loving husband, with a servant's heart,
persisted in getting involved in our church, The
Crossings Community Church, and our West
Orange community through Adrenaline Student
Ministries. He led a group of male high-school-
ers in providing clothing and food for the home-
less, and he gave part-time hours to creative me-
dia content for the ministry. I envied his energy;
at one time I was charged with doing things to
encourage others, but I let myself become held
back by the heaviness of my home's inefficiency
and unsafe environment and the other challeng-
es we all face during a difficult financial climate.
Yet, I knew that the improvement of our home
was completely out of my hands.
During the months that ensued, while we an-
ticipated the birth of our baby, Mark and I were
supported by our small group with The Cross-
ings, our family and our friends. We attended a
financial study led by two of the most insight-
ful and kind-hearted people who helped groom
Mark and me into strong financial managers, We
cut up our credit cards, squeezed out any addi-
tional "life" in our lifestyle and, most important-


ly, changed our perspective on money.
In December, Adrenaline leaders asked Mark
to attend their Wednesday night gathering to
make a presentation on stage to promote a'con-
ference the students would attend in February
called "Live Love." It was a conference that
would help the kids understand the importance
of "being" love to those around them, and how
to go about it.
Mark walked up on stage and began reading
the script he was given. He talked about how
Adrenaline would "become" love in February,
helping a family in need by providing an Ex-
treme Yard Makeover. Mark gestured over his
shoulder as he told the students to look at the
screen behind him to see a picture of the house.
When he turned around to see the image for
himself, he saw.our house.
We were brought to tears and a little sick in
our stomachs because we only heard of things
like this happening to other people. In fact, we
volunteered for the Extreme Yard Makeover
in January 2008 and witnessed the incredible
transformation of another Winter Garden fam-
ily's home. It felt surreal to now be the recipient
of such generosity and hard labor.
The project initiator and master fund-raiser,
'Joy Tewson (Adrenaline ministries director),
poured her energy into this project; warrior Proj-
ect Manager Carol Wyatt donated an exhaustive
number of hours to coordinating and implement-*
ing the work; while Jonathan and Kelly Tewson
with Tewson Landscaping sculpted plans for
our yard and secured necessary permitting. My
brother-in-love (as I refer to him) Alex Mc-
Culloch and his wife, Windsor, with Castlestone
Inc. provided extraordinary stone masonry; Lisa
Scalzo (working with a back injury) and her
husband, Greg, provided much-needed fund-
raising, food from Magical Mealtime and inten-
sive labor and communication; while Adrenaline
Student Leader Marcio Pacheco and Creative
Director Nolan Poore rallied and led more than
one hundred students to complete this miracle
of a project.
Building on their efforts (which only scratch
the surface of their work), the city of Winter Gar-
den and the police and fire departments stepped
up to support the project in various ways. And,
the list of contributing companies and individu-
als started to pile up. What had been an Extreme
Yard Makeover turned into an Extreme Home
Makeover because of this support.
With the framework for the house plans in
place, hundreds of people, including more than
110 students, descended like ants at a picnic
on our property on Feb. 28, 2009, to give their
hearts, time and energy to the transformation of
our home.
Mark, Arden, and I pulled up to our house that
evening; we huddled behind a city of Winter
Garden Fire truck that blocked our view of our
new and improved house.
In one life-changing moment, dozens of peo-
ple shouted "Move that truck!", the red rescue
vehicle that symbolized "emergency service"
pulled away, and there it was our once "ugly
duckling" of a home that became a storybook
retreat to give us hope, show us love and help us
fully realize the collective power of this commu-
nity, a local church and its honorable students.

Dear Editor:

This is the worst time of year for child drown-
ings. All too often we hear about prevention tips
after a child has drowned. We cannot just stand
by and do nothing when our children's lives are at
stake. The Florida Safety Council last week issued
a child drowning alert and water safety alert.
The Florida Safety Council offers these water
safety reminders:
Never leave a child alone in or near a pool or
spa, even for a second. The simple act of answer-
ing the telephone can leave a child unattended
long enough to drown. There is no substitute for
adequate supervision.
Enroll your child in swimming lessons -
NOW!
Teach your children four key swimming
rules:
1. Never swim alone always have a swim-
ming buddy.
2. Don't dive into unknown bodies of water.
Jump in feet first to avoid hitting your head on a

County urges'shoppers to
'Take Your Own Tote'


Orange County's Environ-
mental Protection Division
(EPD) is asking residents to
participate in its Take Your
Own Tote (T.Y.O.T.) program
on Earth Day, Wednesday,
April 22, and refrain from us-
ing paper and plastic bags at
supermarkets and stores.
This countywide effort is in-
tended to demonstrate the ease
and benefits of reusable bags
while educating the public on
the negative environmental im-
pacts of single-use bags.
According to national statis-
tics, the excessive use and dis-
posal of plastic and paper bags
adds up to enormous ecologi-
cal consequences. The average
U.S. citizen uses up to 500 bags
a year -almost 22,000 bags
in a lifetime. If amindividual
simply cut that use in half, the
effect would greatly reduce the,


negative impacts of single-use
bags.
"Even though recycling pa-
per and plastic bags is good,
there is an easier and more
effective way to. handle this,
waste issue," said EPD repre-
sentative Nancy Rodlun. "Take
your own tote."
The T.Y.O.T. Earth Day cam-
paign will include pledge sta-
tions set up across the county
at public buildings and college
campuses prior to April 22.
Residents can pledge to help
reduce single-use waste and
receive tools to participate on
Earth Day.
For more information and
on how individuals, busi-
nesses and organizations can
participate, contact the Orange
County EPD at 407-836-1400

Inaugural Green
Cities event set
for May 19-21
The Orange County Conven-
tion Center will host the inau-
gural Green Cities Florida se-
ries on May 19-21. The event
is designed to create opportu-
nities for helping build a green
economy in Florida.
Green Cities will offer in-
teractive and collaborative
workshops, nationally known
experts in sustainability, best
practices case studies, con-
versation caf6 environments,
a meet-the-consultants round-
table, a green jobs seminar
and open space technology
sessions.
Attendees will be provided
with short-term and long-term
steps towards sustainable prac-
tices, opportunities to network
with like-minded peers and
demonstrations of how the
"triple bottom line" provides
for people, planet and profit.
Green Cities prepares business
and government with practi-
cal steps and specific plans for
participating in the growing
$265 billion green economy.
Green Cities events utilize
professional presenters and the
top experts in the field of sus-
tainability to educate and in-
spire government and business
audiences. Instead of an exhibit
hall, Green Cities Florida will
feature an interactive sponsor
showcase featuring sustainable
products and services, a green
bookstore, organic meal buf-
fets and more.
The Green Cities Florida
conference pass includes ac-
cess to the entire program in-
cluding speakers, interactive
and collaborative workshops,
best practices case studies,
training in solar energy and
green building certifications
and open space dialogue ses-
sions.
Ten percent of all proceeds
from Green Cities Florida will
benefit Sustainable Florida-
Collins Center, one of the
premier statewide models for
sustainability. For more info

Learn about keeping lawns green with DEP manual


As part of its ongoing Flor-
ida-Friendly Landscape Best
Management Practice Educa-
tional Program, the Florida
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection (DEP) and the
University of Florida Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences (UF-IFAS) announced
the completion of a revised
Green Industries Best Manage-
ment Practices (BMP) manual,
Florida-Friendly Best Manage-
ment Practices for Protection
-of Water Resources by the
Green Industries. ,
The green industry manual
is focused on the lawn care
professional, with detailed
discussions of fertilizer chem-
istry, irrigation systems, pesti-
cide licensing, storage, selec-
tion, handling and landscape
design and installation. The
manual provides information
and guidance on turfgrass and
landscape management prac-
tices to conserve and protect
Florida's water resources.
The practices cover both
the establishment of new turf
and landscapes as well as the
dare of existing turf and land-
scapes, including construction
activities, irrigation, nutrient
management, and pest man-
agement.
Another new manual by the
DEP and UF-IFAS, Florida-
Friendly Landscape Guidance
Models for Ordinances, Cov-
enants, and Restrictions, is


available on the Internet. The
manual provides local and re-
gional government officials,
developers and homeowner
associations with guidance that
can be incorporated into local
land development regulations
or property owner association
requirements. The manual is
expected to be available in
print this month.
"These manuals are compo-
nents of the statewide efforts
to reduce nutrient pollution
associated with urban land-
scapes and to conserve the
state's water resources," said.
Eric Livingston, chief of the
DEP Bureau of Watershed Res-
toration.
The new green industry BMP
manual is designed to help
assure a uniform, consistent
statewide educational program
for use by county extension
faculty, government trainers
and other volunteer trainers,
as well as raising awareness
of this issue among local and
state policy makers.
While the emphasis for the
educational program has his-
torically been private business
and local governments, the au-
diences for these training ses-
sions come from a variety of
backgrounds including private
business, local governments,
state and federal government
agencies, universities and citi-
zens.
The manuals are available at

no cost. However, there may be
a nominal fee for participation
in the green industries classes,
which allow landscapers to
easily obtain hands-on infor-
mation about DEP and other
agency rules, plant needs and
special local area issues, in ad-
dition to obtaining a Certificate
of Completion from the Uni-
versity of Florida.
"There are approximately
five million acres of home
lawns in the state of Florida,
many of which are in close
proximity to water bodies or
naturalized areas," said Dr.
Laurie Trenholm, associate
professor, extension special-
ist and turfgrass researcher
with UF-IFAS. "This rapid
urbanization is resulting in
increased public concerns
regarding use of turf in the
landscape and turf care, par-

County launches clean school bus Initiative


The Orange County Board
of County Commissioners re-
cently celebrated the comple-
tion of the 308th school bus to
be retrofitted with an emission
control device. -
Through innovative part-
nerships, county leaders have
worked to ensure that school
buses are not only the safest but
the cleanest way for children
to get to school. In accordance
with Mayor Rich Crotty's Or-
ange to Green initiative, a proj-
ect to reduce diesel school bus
emissions evolved.
A collaboration between Or-
ange County's Environmental
Protection Division (EPD) and
Orange County Public Schools,
along with a $200,000 grant
from the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency, allowed
for 308 school buses to be ret-
rofitted with Diesel Oxidation
Catalysts (DOCs) provided by
Engine Control Systems. These
pollution control devices are
designed to reduce harmful
exhaust emissions and help stu-

dent riders breathe easier. EPD
dedicated more than $100,000
in matching funds to demon-
strate that a solution to diesel
emissions is available and prac-
tical.
DOCs, similar to the cata-
lytic converters on cars, reduce
emissions by capturing and in-


cinerating- unburned particles,
preventing their release into the
atmosphere. These devices are
capable of removing up to 40
percent of the particulate mat-
ter, 70 percent of the unburned
hydrocarbons and 40 percent of
the carbon monoxide typically
emitted by school buses.

The city of Winter Garden is-
planning several art classes for
children: hand building with
clay and pottery painting. All
classes are held at the Old Fire
Station Recreation Center, 127


One of my highlights from last year was traveling
to Uganda with Children's Hope Chest. The
trip's purpose was to survey the opportunities for
churches to establish collaborative relationships
with existing orphanages. Uganda was a good
place to be looking for such a thing since it has
one of the highest percentages of Aids orphans
in the world.
I'll never forget walking into abospice nursery
and seeing the wall of pictures with smiling chil-
dren. Most of them had little stars in the comers.
asked one of the volunteers what the star meant.
She replied, "Those are the children who've died."
My heart sank for a few moments as I realized that
these volunteers' primary job was to hold children
as they died. I
And I will never forget walking into that remote
village and coming across that young teenager
who.was caring for his younger siblings. Both
-parents had died of Aids. He was left to protect,
feed, and care for the family. Most of the children
we visited in orphanages would smile and
laugh. None was evident in their faces. In fact,
as you looked into their eyes you could see the
hopelessness. One of the villagers explained the
circumstances to our guide, adding that the young
girls were regularly raped in the night by maraud-
ing boys. We felt so helpless.
I ask for yourprayers as we begin to reach out to
some of these children. On April 4th -5th Tom
Davis, author of Fields of the Fatherless and
President of Children's Hope Chest, will be in
our services to challenge us to participate in an
opportunity that makes a difference. In the midst
of these difficult times, we will be asking our
congregation to financially sponsor and develop a
relationship with one of the orphanages'we visited
in October. Initially we will sponsor 50 children
(for 10 years).but within a year it will grow to 100.
It feels like a daunting task in such economically
challenging times. But as I consider the character
of God, His call in our lives, and the great need
inUganda, it gets put in perspective. If you have
April 4th or 5th free, you just might want to come
and join us in hearing Tom Davis share about the
need in our world.. I also would love to hear how
you are serving the world through participating.in
opportunities that make a difference. Send me an
mail at jdunwell@westwoodchurch.com or leave

THANK

YOU

I would like to express my deep-
est thanks to all the people who
came out and voted in this very
important election. I would also
like to thank all my supporters who
walkedfor me and the people who
monetarily supported me. It takes a combined effort of both to
run a successful campaign. My campaign manager, Christine
Moore, put it all together and even found the time to walk with
me. She was a big par1 of my success.

Downtown Winter Garden has made some great strides in
becoming a great destination for its own residents and also
for people from other towns and cities. I really want to work
hard to keep it going in that manner. You can either find me
most week days eating lunch downtown or on the city Web site
under commissioners.

I feel it's a great honor to have been chosen to represent the
residents of District 2 and the city of Winter Garden.

Thank you and God bless you,
Bob Buchanan

lost habitat of this unusual bird. Above, this is the 1st of
the wood ducks to locate and claim a wood duck nesting
box as its own. Arlen and Jackie Brown-Colberg picked up
2 boxes from ONP, installed them at their home in Mount
Dora and had residents within 2 weeks. Nesting boxes
are still available at the preserve. The funds for this proj-
ect were made possible by donations to Bloom 'N' Grow
through the annual Spring Fever in the Garden festival

Florence Daly in her home at Summerville in Ocoee with
memorabilia from the time she was commissioner for USA
Girls Scout troops in France.

Summerville resident reminisces
about living in France in the 1950s


Florence Daly was born in
Washington D.C., graduated,
from Strayers Business Col-
lege and worked for a surety
bond company in, Washington
for five years before marrying
her husband, who was a career
Army officer.
Lt. Col. Daly was sent to
France in 1952. When the fam-
ily joined him, Florence wanted
to do something for the young
American girls living in France.
She was ultimately appointed
by both the U.S. Army and the
Girls Scouts of America as com-
missioner for U.S.A. Girl Scout
Troops in France on June 25,
1954.
During the formation of the
Scouting program, the base
commander agreed to extend
participation for French girls


as well.
The French and American
troops enjoyed many joint out-
ings together.
One% memorable moment
was at an initial outing when
food was being grilled.. When
asked by a French mother what
the food was, Florence said. "hot
dogs'" to which the woman re-
plied, "In France we don't eat
dogs."
After much laughter and an
explanation they went on to en-
joy the treat.
By the time Florence returned
home in 1956, there were more
than 600 American Scouts in
more than 40 troops in France.
Summerville at Ocoee, an
assisted-living facility on Clarke
Road, has been "home" to Flor-
ence since June of 2007. '

Windermere Prep Multicultural Festival celebrates diversity


Twenty-eight Windermere
Prep families recently hosted
tables from their countries of
origin around the world during
the school's Third Annual Mul-
ticultural Festival.
The festival, under the di-
rection of Cathy Novokowsky,
WPS director of curriculum,
served as the culmination of
the entire school doing multi-
cultural education units in their
respective classrooms.
"It is a reflection of the focus
on international-mindedness
through a celebration of our
school community's cultural
diversity," Novokowsky said.
The WPS community and
the public were invited to the
school gym to share artifacts,
materials and foods from differ-
ent countries as well as interna-
tional entertainment provided
by WPS students, and in some
instances, their family members
and friends.
Maria Oliveira, a WPS par-
ent, co-chaired this year's fes-
tival. After hosting last year's
Brazilian table, Oliveira wanted
to have greater involvement.
One of her contributions this
year was helping organize
eight WPS Brazilian families


to co-host two Brazilian tables
this year.
The festival has been dou-
bling in size each year, accord-
ing to Novokowsky.
"We were excited to add to
our student performances with
all four bands performing inter-
national collections of songs,"
she said. "And the professional
entertainment included a Bra-
zilian Bosa Nova guitarist and
singer."
The educational units took
different forms like sixth-grad-
ers pairing with their first-grade
reading buddies to read Cinder-
ella stories from different cul-'
tures around the world. These
included the Irish Cinder Lad,
The Way Meat Loves Salt from
the Jewish tradition, Cendrillon
from the Caribbean and Yeh-
Shen from China. Then they
analyzed the many ways the
stories were alike and differ-
ent. Many of the unit projects
were on display the night of the
festival along the gymnasium
bleachers.
Students were given pass-
poits, and as they toured each
of the tables representing dif-
ferent countries, their pass-
ports were stamped once they


correctly answered a question
about that country. Many of the
tables featured specialty foods
from that country, much of it
prepared by WPS parents es-
pecially for the festival.
"This year, in addition to
food prepared by hosting fami-
lies, we also were fortunate to
have local specialty stores and
restaurants donate foods from
around'the world to be sam-
pled," said Novokowsky. "Two
favorites were Magic Wok and
Careira's Italian Restaurant in
Dr. Phillips.;
"The festival's success is
truly reflective of the wonderful
cultural diversity which we are
very proud of at our school and
enjoy sharing throughout the
year," said Novokowsky. "Our
school is an International Bac-
calaureate World School, and
the multicultural festival is a
great way to make educational
connections with our curricu-
lum and highlight our commit-
ment to a global education pre-
paring our students for success
in the 21st century."


Windermere Prep parents Deodat and Indira Harry hosted a Guyana booth. Here they
pose with their 7th-grade daughter Avina, who is wearing a traditional Sari, having just
performed a Guyanese spring festival dance at the Multicultural Festival.


Ninth-grader Steven Xie greets visitors to the China table
he hosted with his grandparents. Xie's table featured food
from his family's Magic Wok restaurant.


Telling the Multicultural Festival audience about her outfit
depicting the flag of Guyana is 6-year-old Alexis Harry-
Gilliam, who was invited to participate in the festival by her
aunt, Avina Harry, a WPS 7th-grader.


Greeting visitors to the Egypt table are WPS 1st-grader
Rami Salem and his mother, Alix.

Swim lessons


They learn to swim face down
in the water, rotate to their back
to float and breathe, then swim
to safety. This will prepare them
for an accidental fall into the wa-
ter. There is follow-up instruc-
tion to make sure children retain
the skills they learn. Along with
a registration fee, the cost is $15
per lesson.
Through its affiiliated non-
profit, A Gift of Swimming,
Southwest Aquatics offers a
$375 scholarship for this pro-
gram to any family that qualifies
for county assistance programs,
such as HeadStart, free and re-
duced lunch, WIC and food
stamps. It also has specialized
programs .for children with
brittle bone disease, cerebral
palsy, Down syndrome and au-
tism when referred by a physi-
cian. More than 1,500 children
have learned to swim through
this scholarship program. The
mission of A Gift of Swimming
is .to provide access to drown-
ing-prevention resources and
education for the community's
underprivileged, mentally or
physically challenged or other-
wise disadvantaged.
In a recent interview, Kathy
Baldwin, executive director of A
Gift of Swimming, said parents
and grandparents might think
spending money on swimming
lessons is not important in this
economy, but they also could
believe an accidental drowning
is not going to happen to them.
McGinty has been teaching
and operating Southwest Aquat-
ics for 17 years. The facility,
at 205 Windermere Road in
Winter Garden, has two heated
pools and offers lessons year-
round. In addition to instruc-
tion in aquatic survival skills,
the center offers swim lessons
for all ages through adult in pri-
vate and group settings, as well
as swim team, water polo and
snorkeling programs. For more
information, call 407-905-2815
or go to www.southwestaquat-
ics.com.
In a phone interview, YMCA
Aquatic Director Vicki Golat
discussed the SafeStart, the
survival and swim program for
infants and toddlers, offered
through the Central Florida
YMCA branches.
She said infants as young as
six weeks can begin with one-
minute lessons. Instructors
teach babies to turn onto their


(Continued from A) Winter Garden


backs and float until help ar-
rives. Later, they learn a swim
sequence.
"As soon as children are
mobile and crawling, water is
a potential danger," said Golat.
"We're committed to no more
deaths."
Children in the YMCA's Saf-
eStart program participate in
10-minute lessons, five days a
week for six weeks. The session
cost is $60 for both members
and non-members.
In the program, Golat said
trained instructors work with
children five days a week to
teach ingrained water-emer-
gency skills to save the child's
life while watching out for the
health and welfare of the young
swimmer. Depending on the
child's age, parents are taught
how to maintain the skills so
the children will be prepared
for more traditional swimming
stroke lessons at age 3.
After completing SafeStart,
children can advance to four
progressions in stroke devel-
opment classes. Some SafeStart
graduates are ready to move into
the third level of stroke classes,
said Golat. The local YMCAs
all offer swim team programs.
Of three local YMCAs, only
the Aquatic Center on Interna-
tional Drive has heated pools for
swim instruction in the winter
months. YMCA swim programs
.begin in outdoor pools in April
or May, depending on daytime
temperatures.
On April 18, the Dr. Phillips
YMCA, Roper YMCA and the
YMCA Aquatic Center will
sponsor the annual Healthy
Kids Day event. Thp public is
invited to join in youth sports
activities and games, aerobic
and aquatic demonstrations and
healthy lifestyle activities and
sign up for SafeStart and other
swimming lessons and sum-
mer camp. For more informa-
tion, call Dr. Phillips YMCA at
407-351-9417, I-Drive Aquatic
Center 407-363-1911 or Roper
YMCA at 407-656-6430.
"The YMCA has something
for everyone," said Golat. "We
try to provide scholarships for
as many as possible."
Paul Burdziakowski is the
aquatics leader at the Jim Beech
Recreation Center in Ocoee on
A.D. Mims Road.
Classes at the Ocoee Recre-
ation Center usually begin in


June when the water is warmer,
said Burdziakowski. Sessions
are four days a week for two
weeks. Infant and parent class-
es are offered for children ages
6-months-old to 2 years. Level
1 classes teach bubble breathing
and floating for beginners. Lev-
el 2 teaches arm and leg move-
ments. Levels 3 and 4 provide
stroke instruction and breathing
techniques. Level 5 gives in-
struction in additional strokes.
Registration information will be
available in approximately two
weeks, Burdziakowski said.
He encourages adults to al-
ways watch children closely in
the water.
"You should not trust your
child in the water alone. Con-
ditions can vary quickly," Burd-
ziakowski said. "Children 6, 7
and 8 can forget swim skills, so
babies and infants can forget,
too."
Jay Conn, Winter Garden
Parks and Recreation director,
told The West Orange Times the
city offers swim lessons for all
ages. The Mommy and Me, or
water exploration, program is
intended for parents and small
children as young as 6-month-
old. Children are taught how to
be comfortable in the water and
then have fun. Level 1 stroke
classes are available for children
ages 4 and older.
Classes are offered at the
Farnsworth Pool, 1 Surprise
Drive, June through August in
morning and evening sessions.
The morning classes are set up
in two-week sessions, four days
a week. The evening sessions
will have classes twice a week
for four weeks, said Conn.
The Winter Garden Rec has
just started online registration
through the city Web site, www.
wintergarden-fl.gov, click on
parks and rec. For more infor-
mation, call 407-656-4155.
Conn advises parents to watch
their children as closely as pos-
sible and not get too comfort-
able just because they've had
swim lessons.
There are at least five loca-
tions in West Orange County
that offer swimming lessons.
Many clubs and neighborhoods
have swimming pools that will
be offering private swimming
instruction. Take advantage of
these options to give your child
the skills to have safe fun in the
water.


Violations at Avalon Road
and Stoneybrook West Park-
way are also on the rise, Bren-
nan added.
If the ordinance is passed,
Winter Garden would then ne-
gotiate an agreement with an
independent vendor that would
provide and install the cameras
at no cost to the city. Companies
that provide red-light camera
services, Brennan said, handle
the task of monitoring and re-
viewing camera footage and
submitting possible infractions
to the city police department.
A Winter Garden police of-
ficer would review the sub-
missions from the monitoring
company and, if verified, send a
violation notice to the registered
owner of the vehicle caught on
camera. A Web site would allow
motorists to access a citation on-
line and view still photos and a
short video of the violation. The
driver would then have a choice
of paying or appealing the ticket
online or in person.
Under a typical agreement,
all fine money is paid to the
city, and the city then pays the
vendor. Orange County cities


using red-light cameras, Bren-
nan said, have established a
$125 fine with $45 of each paid
ticket going toward the vendor
company.
Those who receive tickets
under this program, Brennan
added, would not have points as-
sessed to their driver's licenses
since the tickets are not reported
to insurance companies. The
goal, he said, is simply to reduce
red-light running to make city
streets safer.
In other business, the elected
officials:
approved the first reading of
a proposed ordinance revising
the city's restrictions on resident
sex offenders. The current ordi-
nance only applies to offenders
who have been convicted under
Florida State Statutes.
Since Winter Garden passed
its law, Brennan reported, nu-
merous offenders who were
convicted of sex crimes in oth-
er states have moved to Win-
ter Garden, and the ordinance
doesn't apply to them because
they weren't convicted in Flor-
ida.
If passed at a public hearing,

with Arnold Palmer Invitational


Count birdies to
help babies in
need of critical

every birdie scored during the
tournament or by making a
one-time donation to support
the Neonatal Intensive.Care
Unit (NICU) at Winnie Palmer
Hospital for Women and Ba-
bies.
. A birdie occurs when a


golfer completes a hole one-
shot under par. There has been
an average of 1,149 birdies a
year over the past five tour-
naments, ranging from a low
of 1,057 in 2005, to a high of
1,261 in 2006.
"Each year theArnold Palmer
Invitational helps raise much-
needed funds for both Arnold
Palmer and Winnie Palmer
hospitals," said Jeffrey Mud-
dell, Arnold Palmer Medical

dent. "This program is a great
extension of that relationship
and allows us to further involve
the community in helping ba-.

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


"But Iwant you 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. ,Ifwe, 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!.

roads. This is the perfect time of
year to seek out the freshest pro-
duce.


What better time than spring
to think of making true South-
ern shortcake. Fresh fruits now
in season like strawberries,
peaches and blueberries make
these shortcake recipes classic
seasonal desserts, easily made
in minutes and sure to impress
friends and family with their
presentation.
"Traditional Southern short-
cake is much like a sweet bis-
cuit often made with butter,
eggs and cream. We've taken
the classic and simplified it by
using 'a stir-and-drop method
that is easy for anyone to make,"
said Dede Fuson, baking expert
for White Lily flour, the tradi-
tional flour used for generations
by Southern cooks.
With a few extra special
touches, the Strawberries and
Cream Shortcake Parfait trans-
forms into an impressive des-
sert when presented in a par-
fait glass. Dough is dropped
by teaspoonfuls to make mini-
shortcakes, layered with fruit
and whipped cream.
Almond Peach Shortcake
is a variation on the shortcake
theme. Made with toasted al-
monds and almond extract, the
dough is easy to stir up and drop
onto a cookie sheet. In just a
few minutes, you will have al-
mond shortcakes to split and
fill with peaches and whipped
cream.
