Lynx dissolving route in W.G. and Oakland


A new curb-to-curb pick-
up service is starting up
in Ocoee.

By Amy Quesinberry

Lynx is the only mode oftransportation
for some people in Winter Garden and
Oakland who rely on the bus service to
get to work or school.
But Lynx officials say there aren't
enough riders on Link 27 and it's too
expensive to operate the nearly empty
buses so the route is scheduled to
be dissolved April 26, forcing these


residents to find alternate transportation
to make a living or get an education.
"It goes down to funding," said
Matthew P. Friedman, manager of media
relations for Lynx. "But the main thing
is, nobody's riding. I think we're looking
at maybe nine people an hour."
He said this link ranges, in terms of
ridership, from the worst to the bottom
five each month.
Link 27 costs $622,000 a year to
operate with only 90,000 passengers
utilizing the buses on that route annually.
In 2008, more than 27 million riders
used the entire Lynx system.
The two municipalities are left with


one link each. In Oakland, Link 204, a
Lake County express line, stops at Deer
Island on West Colonial Drive on its
ways to downtown Orlando.
In Winter Garden, Link 442 will
continue to run from .the Winter Garden
Village at Fowler Groves to West Oaks
Mall, making stops at West Orange
High School, Health Central and a few
major streets in between. This route was
funded through a service development
grant when the Winter Garden mall was
opened.
Lynx is holding its next board of
directors meeting April 22 and will
discuss extending Link 27 until June 3,


which is the end of the'school year. Only
the Lynx board and the Orange County
Board of County Commissioners can
grant the extension.
"It would not be fair to students to cut
this service with a month to go in their
year," Friedman said. "We're working
to keep it around."
He said Lynx overbudgeted the
amount that would be needed for
diesel gasoline so there is a money
savings there that could help extend
the link another month. The decisions
will be made in a few weeks.

Tiger Woods hoists the championship trophy at the Arnold Palmer Invi-
tational for the 6th time last Sunday as Palmer applauds. For the 2nd
straight year, Woods rallied in dramatic fashion and won the Bay Hill tour-

Woods' 66th career title and was only his 3rd start since returning from
knee surgery.



Oakland working to make

new homes comparable

in size to neighbors'


By Amy Quesinberry


Few homeowners want to see
a super-sized home built next
door, but in Oakland, this has '
been happening in both the old
and new sections of town. That
will change, however, once
the Town Commission writes
an ordinance prohibiting such
\ neighborhood irregularities.
"We want the buildings to
interconnect and weave into
the fabric of the community,"
Mayor Kathy Stark said at last
week's regular commission
meeting.
Building sizes are regulated
by floor area ratios (FAR),
and impervious surface ratios
(ISR). In Oakland, commercial
buildings are subject to
limitations by both the FAR and
ISR; homes currently only need
to be built using the ISR.
FAR takes into account the
number of stories a building
has. It is calculated as the total
square footage of a' building,
including all floors, divided by
the overall lot square footage.
ISR is the total square footage
of all impervious surfaces (such
as the home, driveway, pool or
shed) divided by the overall lot
square footage. It does not take
into consideration the number
of floors.
And this is what the
commission wants to amend.


Last week. Town Planner
Rbland Magyar presented a
table that explained the FAR
ranges in neighborhoods
throughout the town. In old
town, it ranged from .18 to .46.
The average home in the town's
subdivisions was .35.
Commissioner Mona Phipps
was in favor of neighborhood
congruity: "If you want to
build in old town, build what
is typical in old town. We are
just protecting the integrity of
what is existing."
Roberts, said he and
Magyar will come back with
recommendations at the April 28
Town Commission meeting.
In other business, the elected
officials:
approved Oakland Park's
request for the vesting of 175
units from school concurrency.
The units were previously
approved for the Oakland Park
PUD. The school concurrency
policy states that the necessary
school facilities will be
available when the impacts of
development occur and keeps
the developer from having to go
to the Orange County School
Board for approval later. This
approval for vesting only
applies to school concurrency
requirements and not other
issues such as water and

County links uninsured

with health care providers


The Orange County Health
Department is working to link
people without health insur-
ance to a health care provider
through its O-PACT (Orange
Primary Access Coordination
Team) program. This is part of
a free community program, and
a registered nurse and an eligi-
bility specialist are set up at the
Oakland Meeting Hall each
Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Residents interested in the
program can register on any
Thursday and must bring proof
of identification and citizenship,
a Society Security card for each
person and verification of ad-
dress and income.
For a complete list of docu-
ments to provide, call the Health
Department at 407-858-1400.

Local residents who regularly travel
along Winter Garden's southern stretch
of County Road 535 can anticipate in-
creased traffic and some headaches
when the two-lane road is doubled in
size, although it will likely be awhile
before construction begins.
The City Commission approved
an interlocal agreement with Orange
County government at last Thursday's
meeting that cleared the way for C.R.
535 to be widened to four lanes from
the State Road 429 Western'Beltway
to the city border at Magnolia Park
Court, located immediately south of
the Winter Garden Cemetery and new
city park.
Cit) leaders expressed frustration
that work might not begin for nearly
two years. The agreement states that


construction must begin by Feb. 1,
2011. Last Thursday's pact was the
culmination of years of negotiating
with county officials, City Attorney
Kurt Ardaman told the commission.
"We pressed the county on this, but
initially the county did not want to
commit to a start date," Ardaman said.
"At least now we have a contractual,
definite start date. This was the earliest
we could get them to commit to."
Even more frustrating, perhaps, is
that the project's completion is set for
seven years after the start date. Despite
the timetable, City Manager Michael
Bollhoefer said it would be a benefi-
cial deal for Winter Garden.
"I feel this is a good agreement with
the county, even though it 'did take
a bit of time to work out," said City

New lakefront park doubles

Windermere's green space


By Kathy Aber


Well known for its pristine
lakes and picturesque shore-
line, Windermere has now
added significant recreational
space to its 8.8-acre park sys-
tem. The Town Council voted
last Tuesday 4-1 to accept the
gift of a 9.4-acre lakefront
park with a 2,880-square-foot
recreation center, three light-
ed tennis courts, a 40-space
paved parking lot, fishing
pier and bridge to an island in
Lake Crescent with a pavilion.
Council Member Burns Hov-
ey cast the dissenting vote.
During the February council


meeting, the elected officials
learned a 'court-appointed re-
ceiver, Terry Crawford, was
offering to give the park to
the town. The gated, private
park, known as the Butler Bay
Recreation Center, is currently
owned by the Butler Bay As-
sociation Inc. It has been op-
erated by a master board com-
posed of representatives from
three separate subdivisions,
two of which are within Wind-
ermere town limits.
Donating the park to a gov-
ernmental entity was one of
the ways for the master board
to divest itself of the property.
Town Manager Cecilia


Bernier prepared an analysis
of the property, including the
necessary renovations and
improvements that could be
required to bring the build-
ing, grounds and tennis fa-
cilities up to par. In evaluating
the property, she enlisted the
help of an engineer and two
staff members from the city of
Ocoee, Windermere's direc-
tor of public works, Council
Member-elect Cecil Rob-
inson, stormwater engineer
Mike Galura and Jon Hodg-
skin of Hodgskin Outdoor
Living. After compiling the

at community garden


A ribbon-cutting
is planned for
this Saturday
morning at the
Winter Garden site.

By Amy Quesinberry

The plan was to start with
20 small plots in the Winter
Garden Community Garden.
But organizers underestimated
residents' desire to grow their
own vegetables and herbs, and
all 110 spots are filled.
And there's a waiting list.

Mae Wilder said the commu-
nity is invited to the garden's
grand opening and ribbon-
cutting ceremony, which take
place at 10:30 a.m. The garden
is located at the northeast cor-
ner of Pennsylvania Avenue
and Ninth Street.
Information about the garden


will be provided, Wilder said,
and master gardeners will be
there for anyone needing gar-
dening advice. A short program
will be given, and those recog-
nized will include sponsors, as
well as the garden angels who
purchased plots and donated
them to others.
Wilder said some of the gar-
den plots have been designated
for the Winter Garden Farmers'
Market and some are being
cultivated for low-income res-
idents who registered to receive
free vegetables.
.A sign recognizing the com-
munity garden and its sponsors
will be erected by Saturday.
People have been stopping by
to take pictures of the project,
Wilder said. One woman visit-
ing from Texas took photos and
said she was going to introduce
the idea to her community.
"I can't think the city enough
for their support," Wilder said
Tuesday.

Do you hear it? I hope you do. It sounds
a tad familiar. And yet there's'something
new and fresh about it. A few times I've
caught myself tapping my foot, marching,
or even dancing to it. And I know I've
caught some of you doing the very same
thing. Obviously, we're not ready for
Dancing with the Stars, Stomp, or any
drum line. But there is something fresh,
inviting, and invigorating about this rhythm
God's clicking off for our Body. It's the
"ta-ta-tat" of serving the world. It's the
catchy beat of His invitation to participate
in something that makes a difference.'
Throughout the month of April we will be
trying to discern this rhythm of God's heart
in His Word, and in our world, through a
series of messages. I do hope we'll begin
to hear it and even enjoy it. But I am
praying for something more. I don't want
us to become mere wallflowers at the High
School dance. Rather, I want us to become
those "head-rockers" at the stoplight, with
the beat booming for all to hear from the
over-sized woofers in the trunk of our car.
I want us to so feel this rhythm that it cre-
ates a new cadence in life. Yep, you heard
me. I'm hoping we create a new distinctive
walk, with a swagger of service.
On April 4th and 5th our Missions Ministry
Team will be turning up the volume on
this rhythm. The "boom boom" you hear
will be the beats of our new cadence
of service in Uganda, a place with an
unprecedented number of Aids orphans. As
a congregation we will begin a long-term
collaborative relationship with Rapha
Orphan Village. As the primary sponsor of
this crucial ministry center, we will create a
relationship of encouragement, prayer, and
financial support. Over the next number
of years, we will be getting to know their
staff and children, sending work teams, and
raising dollars for special projects.
As individuals, we will each have the op-
portunity to minister to a specific child.
On April 4th and 5th, we will be presenting
52 children who need monthly sponsors.
In the next couple of years, this number
will likely grow to 100. As a monthly
sponsor, we will have the privilege of pray-
ing for our children, communicating with
them, and financially providing for their
housing, food, medical care, schooling, and
discipleship.
I hear it and I know you do to. Like mine,
your foot is already tapping to the beat.
I'm ready to turn up the music and get out
on the floor. How about you?

'It was an ordinary day like any other. Mi-
chael Canaveral, 14, of Winter-Garden had
muscular dystrophy we knew that but
on this day he just had a stomach ache. Michael
went to school because he did not want to miss
the FCAT.
Saturday, Michael went into cardiac arrest
and was put on a respirator. His organs were

doctor if he thought we could have a miracle

home. I hoped that
we could go back to

lives back the way

S me the miracle does

Sthat our miracle had

-- we had Michael
in our lives.
S He told me that a
miracle could hap-

who lived only
one day or that an
80-year-old person
could pass away and
never have experi-
enced a miracle.
Michael passed
away on Tuesday, Michael Canaveral with
March 24. He held
on for 10 days as his family stayed by his side,
and we began to realize that the miracle had
already happened.
Michael came to be part of our family when
he arrived from the Philippines at age 7. My
brother, John Pealer, and his wife, Myrna, had
the pleasure of being Michael's parents. My
sister, Cathy, adopted Michael's little sister,
Delaney, when she was two weeks old, and she
is now age 5 another blessing.
SDuring the 10 days we stayed by his side,
we all began to understand one by one all the
miracles that Michael had created in our lives
how each day is a gift and a choice. We can
choose to be happy or not.
Michael was joyful every day in spite of his
illness. He was always smiling his beautiful
smile. He was very sad when he found out he
would never walk again, but he was so grateful
when he received his wheel chair. He love it
and affectionately called it "his baby."
Michael did not like when others did not get
along. He was such a peacemaker and wanted
everyone to live in peace and love. He loved-
to do community service projects, and his fa-
vorite one was working with children in need
of glasses and eye exams whose families could
not afford these services.

Michael always found a way to come up with

Editor,

As mayor of Groveland, I am calling on our
West Orange County neighbors to join us to
stand up against Niagara Bottling Co., which
seeks to deplete our aquifer by nearly a half-
million gallons of water a day. This would have
a crippling effect on our current and future wa-
ter supply.
If St. Johns River Management approves the
water-bottling company's permit, it has the po-
tential to impact other areas of Florida in three
ways:
1. Niagara is requesting 176 million gallons
of drinking water annually-for the next 20 years.
This extends well beyond 2013 when water au-
thorities have said the aquifer will be capped in
its ability to meet demands.
2. Niagara's water demands in a week are i
more than the amount a Sonny's Bar-B-Q,
The Home Depot and a large distribution cen-
ter combined would typically use for an entire

About half of the number of estimated persons
subject to Winter Garden's $2 street tax have paid
their assessment. "We have issued receipts to 236
persons," said City Clerk E.S. Tanner, "and we
estimate between 550 and 600 are subject to the
tax."
Between 1,200 and 1,500 people saw the free
movie presented by the Pounds Motor Company
- Thirty Years of Progress at the Winter Gar-
den Theatre. It showed the development of the
automobile industry from 1904 to the present time,
depicting the Ford Motor Company from its first
awkward models in 1904 to the trim 1934 V-8.
The career of the young Ford dealer in the movie
is somewhat analogous to that of Hoyle Pounds,
oldest Ford dealer in the county.

The children of Winter Garden and Tildenville
elementary schools are presenting an operetta in

There were calls for millions of tons of waste
paper in 1944 to be used for ammunition cases,
plane parts, blood plasma containers and many
other useful items.

The Orange County School Board faces a very
grave situation in the months to come when new
schools must be built and others remodeled to take
care of the influx of new residents. They are con-
fronted with a $34 million program and are fearful
that the voters of the county might not take kindly
to a tax increase. Four schools Apopka, Drew,
Wheatley and Jones face conversion by next


year. That means new businesses and potentially
hundreds of job opportunities will be limited
because of the amount of water Niagara is tak-
ing away.
3. If Niagara's permit is granted, it will in-
crease pressure for our area to seek alternative
sources of water. Groveland and Lake County
commissioners, who also are against Niagara's
permit, currently oppose an expensive pipeline
that would direct St. Johns River water to Cen-
tral Florida.
On April 4, the Groveland community will
hold a rally to show Niagara that Floridians are
taking a stand when it comes to our water. We
invite everyone who cares about our future to
join us before it is too late. For more informa-
tion about this,issue, go to defendgrovelands-

UCF economist: It's time to pay for Florida's Ponzi scheme


Bernie Madoff isn't the only one with invest-
ment troubles, says a University of Central Flori-
da economist. Florida's long-standing scheme of
relying on strong population growth to generate
new dollars has fallen apart.
"We've taken a turn for the Madoff," says Sean
Snaith, director of UCF's Institute for Economic
Competitiveness, who today released his state and
regional forecast.
"Any Ponzi scheme can be sustained as long
as new investors continue to be added to the
pyramid," Snaith explains. "But We're seeing a
breakdown in the financing of government across
Florida. The steady influx of population that pro-
vided the additional revenues needed to prop up
the system has evaporated, and the pyramid is
collapsing all around us."
Florida's population has dropped from averag-
ing more than 3.6 percent annual growth during
the 1970s to under 1 percent this year and for
the next few years. That coupled with too many
homes and afaulty tax structure has put a strain on
Florida's economy unlike anything most residents
have ever felt, he said.
That's why the state needs to "grab" all the
federal stimulus money it can, Snaith says.
Florida could be eligible for about $13 billion
for everything from road projects and schools to
unemployment benefits. Denouncing political
infighting, Snaith adds that "leaving money on
the table when we're in such a difficult situation
doesn't make any sense."

services, which he says would broaden the tax
base and cushion the impact on revenue of future
economic cycles.
A portion of the funds, Snaith says, should go
toward investments in Florida's future educa-
tion, infrastructure and other economic develop-
ment around the state.
Snaith's forecast provides a comprehensive
look at Florida and 12 metropolitan regions
through 2012. Those areas are Naples, Daytona
Beach-Deltona, Gainesville, Ocala, Lakeland,
Palm Bay-Melbourne, Pensacola, Miami, Jack-
sonville, Tallahassee, Tampa Bay and Orlando.

Other highlights include:
Unemployment rates will continue their march
toward double digits in 2009. Unemployment will
stay above 10 percent for most df 2010 before
beginning a very slow decline from its peak.
The two sectors forecasted to average solid
growth during 2009-12 are education and health
services (2.5 percent) and professional and busi-
ness services (4 percent).
*.Florida's housing construction sector finally
bottoms out deeper than many expected in the
second quarter of 2009, falling to just 38,250
housing starts at an annual rate. This level of starts
represents only 13,percent of the peak number of
starts reached during the fourth quarter of 2004.
Real Gross State Product growth was near
zero in 2007 and contracted slightly in 2008 (-.9
percent). Growth will contract in 2009 at 3.9 per-
cent before accelerating to 3.9 percent in 2012.

Rosen hosts college students

mentoring local children


Gathered at the Chamber's Capitol Connection event are (I-r): Sen. Lee Constantine;
Maritza Martinez, East Orlando Chamber, past chair; Cory Skeates, Oviedo-Winter
Springs Chamber president; Stina D'Uva, West Orange Chamber president; John Ash-
worth, Seminole County Regional Chamber president; Sen. Andy Gardiner; Paul Seago,
Apopka Area Chamber president; Gabby Ortigoni, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of
Metro Orlando director of marketing and sales; Rep. Mike Horner; and Patrick Chapin,
Winter Park Chamber president.

Chamber takes on Tallahassee


The West Orange Chamber
of Commerce took to the streets
and steps of the State Capital to
present its concerns on a wide
range of issues that will impact
the business community during
the legislative session.
More than 130 community
leaders from Central Florida,
including many from the West
Orange area, joined forces in
Capitol Connection, an eight-
chamber coalition representing
the West Orange, Apopka Area,
East Orlando, Oviedo-Winter
Springs Regional, Orlando
Regional, Seminole County
Regional, Metro Orlando His-
panic and Winter Park cham-
bers of commerce. This year
the collective group converged


upon Tallahassee to focus on
the need for commuter rail as
the first step in a regional rail
system.
On the second day of the
trip, each chamber president
presented a resolution adopted
by each chamber in support of
SunRail to senators Andy Gar-
diner and Lee Constantine.
This commuter rail project
is possible, according to the
Chamber, because 75 percent
of the funds needed,for the
61.5-nile system are funded
by federal and county dollars.
The missing piece is the re-
maining 25 precent required
by the state.
In addition to participating
in the SunRail rally, the at-


tendees of the trip heard from
more than 15 legislators during
a briefing which was followed
by a reception. A highlight of
the trip was a media briefing
where the inner workings of
the capitol were revealed by
the panel experts.
"This trip is always such a
vital piece of the efforts of our
Chamber on advocacy and pub-
lic policy," said Stina D'Uva,
president of the West Orange
Chamber. "Even though the
legislators are dealing with a
myriad of issues because of
the nearly $6 billion budget
shortfall, the Chamber group
used its time in front of the leg-
islators to better the business
community."


While thousands of college
students flock to Central Florida
for fun-filled vacations, a group
of nine Comell University college
students spent their school holi-
day mentoring disadvantaged el-
ementary, middle and high school
students through a program spon-
sored by hotelier Harris Rosen.
The Ivy League students
worked with at-risk youths in
the Tangelo Park neighborhood
while being hosted by Rosen,
who created the Tangelo Park
Pilot Program to benefit children
and teens.
Founded in 1994, the educa-
tional community service initia-
tive provides free preschool for
every 2-, 3- and 4-year-old child
living in the Tangelo Park neigh-
borhood, full college or vocation-
al school scholarships for every
graduating high school senior
in the area, as well as a Neigh-
borhood Center for Families, at
which parents can take parenting
courses and.obtain counseling
and other resources to help them
become positive role models for
their children.
The collegians spent their days
mentoring students at Tangelo
Park Elementary, Southwest Mid-
dle School and Dr. Phillips High
School and spent their nights at
the Rosen Shingle.Creek resort.

Whole Foods raises $28K for YMCA

more than $28,000 for the Dr.

including YMCA members and

The guests enjoyed live en-
tertainment while sampling
more than 27 different wines

Cops host youth
softball clinic
Members of the Oakland
Police Department, along with
area coaches and 21 children,
had a fun Saturday recently at
the West Orange Baptist Church
softball field during the Oak-

The event started with the
young participants stretching
and warming up with a little ex-

separated, and the coaches pro-

minutes. The clinic concluded
with a game between the chil-

Ocoee police strike fun at Carter Bowl


Spring Lake Beautification Project
SCub Scout Pack217 and Scout Troop 198 came out on a recent Saturday and worked
hard on their Spring Lake Beautification Project. Assistant Scoutmaster Gary Markle of
Troop 198 donated his time and did a great job planning the landscaping. The Scouts
thank area nurseries for their donations: Skinner Nursery, Spring Hill Nursery, Lake
Brantley Nursery, Green Thumb Nursery and Whisper Winds. Enjoying the completed
project were (I-r, front) Johnathan Wanda and (back) Frank Doran IV, Brianna Wanda,
Brandon Grisham, Matthew Epps, Brandom Miyar, Troy Roberts, David Lynd, Mark Bon-
ner, Wesley Hawkins and Aisha Lynd. Not pictured: Garrett Tinch, Gary McCutcheon,

By Victoria Laney
Ocoee police officers were
out in force at Winter Garden's
Carter Family Bowl for the past
six weeks. It was all in fun as sev-
en teams competed in a league
sponsored by Jim Carter and the
Citizen's Advisory Council to the
Ocoee Police Department.
When the scores were settled,
Ocoee Chief of Police Charlie
Brown and CACOPD Chair
John Grogan honored owner
Jim Carter with certificates of
appreciation.
Grogan spared no praise,
"Without Jim Carter's help and
never-ending support for com-
munity service, the CACOPD
could not have accomplished this
contribution to the city."
It was a first for a police bowl-
ing league, triggered by the CA-
COPD's appreciation for the
service of Ocoee police officers.
Carter comes from a long line of
law-enforcement officers, so he
was glad to help.
"It is always fun to deal with
police, fire and teachers. They
are the heroes," he said.
The Ocoee police league was
different from most leagues be-
cause the officers didn't mind
jumping teams to help others
improve their scores. In the end,
all police are on the same team.
Seven teams competed, and
naming them was part of the fun.
The "Guns and Hoses" team had
the worst bowling score, but the
best word play in a name. It rec-
ognized Ocoee firefighter Vince
Byrd bowling with his wife,
police officer Jamie Byrd, and
'police officer Michelle Grogan
bowling with husband John, who
is all wet in his work as a Disney
diver.
Some officers were promoted
to the rank of captain, at least
during competition. The win-
ning line up was in first place,
"Decker's Clan" Capt. Asher
Decker, Elliot Yorke, Chuck
Stapleton, and Kelly Chandler.
Second, "Ten Most Wanted" -
Capt. Mike Bryant, David Ogle-
tree, Jim Berish, Sonya Berish,
Jazz Decaul. Third, "The Strike
Team" Capt. Jason Price,
Mark Olsen, Sarah Campbell,
Billy Barry, Scott Nylander.

Dr. P. Phillips YMCA Family Center to undergo renovation


On March 19, the Central Florida YMCA cel-
ebrated the groundbreaking of the final phase
of a $7 million renovation to the Dr. P. Phillips
YMCA Family Center. At a time of economic
difficulties, the final phase of this construction
project is being made possible thanks to the sup-
port and generosity of Dr. Phillips Charities.
The renovations will include an enlarged
wellness floor, expanded child development,
new indoor cycling room, expanded locker
rooms, renovated sports concession stand,
new restrooms and additional parking. Once
S renovations are completed, the Dr. P. Phillips
YMCA will have the largest wellness area in the
Central Florida YMCA Association at 13,000
square feet. The project is set to be completed
in December 2009.
Previous phase enhancements include the


addition of a 2,500-square-foot multi-purpose
room, a 2,000-square-foot gathering area, a new
entry, a new bathhouse in the existing pool area
and a new zero-depth pool complete with 20-
foot Red Rock Slide.
The groundbreaking celebration of this fi-
nal phase was attended by YMCA executives,
Dr.Phillips YMCA staff, Dr.Phillips Charities,
the YMCA Board, Kelsey Construction and
community members. The community event
included a variety of appetizers and fruit punch,
performances by the YMCA Cheerleaders and
the Dr.Phillips Performing Arts After School
program, opening speeches by President and
CEO of Central Florida YMCA Jim Ferber and
Dr. Phillips Charities. Executive Director Rob
Mellen, followed with a prayer blessing by
YMCA Board Member Jim Miller.


At the groundbreaking (1-r) were Dan Ickles, Harvey Burnette, Barbara Roper and Rob
Nellen.

Student turning pillowcases

into dresses for African girls


By Amy Quesinberry

A Bridgewater Middle
School. student and her sib-
lings have set a goal of 500
dresses they want to send to
young girls in Africa.
Taylor Paulin, 12, is col-
lecting pillowcases for a com-
munity service project called
Little Dresses for Africa. Her
8-year-old brother, Isaiah, and
6-year-old sister, Zariah, both
students at Sunset Park El-
ementary, are assisting.
Taylor has recruited family,
friends and teachers from Flor-


Windermere
information collected, Bernier
told the council $60,000 in re-
pairs would be needed.
She also informed the council
that Crawford, the receiver, had
Also offered to give the town
$25,000 toward these costs.
In its discussion of the park
prior to the vote, the council
listened to comments.from
residents.
Robinson, who was installed
as a council member later in the
meeting told the council, "I be-
lieve this would be an excellent
addition to the town; there's no
doubt about it. But I have con-
cerns."
He commended the town
manager on her analysis but
cautioned the council saying
some aspects of the project de-
serve more study because not
all members of the study team
agreed on the specific repairs.
'He suggested a contingency
fund of 30-50 percent should
be set aside for renovations
and pointed out the town man-
ager's report did not include
an evaluation of the air condi-
tioning, electrical or irrigation
systems.
Council Member Hovey, a,
building contractor, opposed
acquiring the property, saying
the renovation estimates were
low. He stressed that the town
had already deferred the cost of
resurfacing roads for two years
for lack of funding and advised
it would be unwise to take on
another possibly costly project.
He said more manpower would
be necessary to maintain the
building and grounds, and this
long-term cost was being un-
derestimated.
Mayor Gary Bruhn said he
considers the recreation center
property an investment.
Dan Fanelli, a Marquesas
Court resident, said the land
could be worth $10-12 million
and called the acquisition "a
once in a lifetime opportunity"
and one that would be enjoyed
for generations.
Resident Richard Gonzales
told the council the added park
land would increase overall
real estate values in town, and
he would be willing to pay in-
creased taxes for capital proj-
ects such as this.
"This is a tremendous op-
portunity and not something we
should be afraid of," Council
Member Norma Sutton said.
Council members Richard
Irwin and Bob Sprick agreed
that if ultimately the recreation
building had to be torn down
because renovation costs be-
come too high, the town would
still have valuable park land.
They also speculated the cost
to tear it down would be less
than the $25,000 offered by the
receiver.
Sprick pointed out the town
has a shortage of tennis courts.
Irwin reminded the other of-
ficials that local non-profit
groups like the Rotary Club of
Windermere often have helped
with funding for these types of


ida to New York to help reach
the.500-dress goal. Students in
Taylor's Beta Club are receiv-
ing community service credits
for each dress they donate.
SThe non-profit organization
is based in Michigan, and rep-
resentatives travel to Africa
several times a year to deliver
the pillowcase dresses.
The Paulin children hope to
collect the dresses this month
in anticipation of a June 9 trip
to Ethiopia. Taylor said she
wants to send her first batch
of dresses to the organization
prior to that.



projects.
Bernier recommended the
council accept the park prop-
erty and told the council she is
very cautious about what she
recommends for the town.
"We know there is work to be
done, but I hate to see you pass
it up," said Bernier.
She reminded the council
of a missed opportunity years
ago when the elected officials
chose not to purchase the for-
mer railroad right-of-way that
runs along Main Street.
After the vote to accept the
property, Finelli, who lives in
Butler Bay, explained the trans-
fer of ownership still requires
the approval of the property
owners in the Butler Bay sub-
divisions to complete the trans-
action.
In other business, the coun-
cil:
took no action to disband
the Tree Board, a matter that
was continued from the previ-
ous meeting.
decided not to spend town
funds to remove a large tree at
the residence of Dan Higgins.
Higgins said Tree Board offi-
cials had agreed to remove the
Street at no cost to him during a
training exercise that was in-
cluded in the annual Treebute
event. Higgins did not attend
the meeting, and Tree Board
members told the council they
had not agreed to pay for the
removal. After lengthy discus-
sion, council concluded the
town was not responsible for
the removal and took no action
on Higgins request to have the
town remove the tree at a cost
of $1,600.
voted to increase the permit
fee for solicitations in town to

Paulin, said several parents

if pillowcases are sent in.
A Web site, www.littledress-
esforafrica.org, gives step-by-
step instructions for making
the simple dresses.

listened to an update from
engineer Tom Kelley on the
road improvements at Park

Kelley said the installation of
the roundabout might have to
be postponed until July 1, the
beginning of FDOT's budget
year. In discussion, council
members discussed the need to
analyze the effect of the round-
about on traffic flow through
the stop-signed intersection at
Windermere Road.
asked the town manager to
write a letter to residents along
dirt Main Street between Sev-

listened to the annual re-
view of the town manager's
performance presented by
member Irwin. After collecting
evaluation reports from each
council member, he prepared
a summary. He said Bernier's
averages this year are higher
in almost every category over
the average scores the council
gave her in 2008. "I feel Cecilia
Bernier serves our town very
well," said Irwin.

program joined together with
Orange County Fire Rescue
to put on a mock DUI for the
senior class. The mock DUI
represented. and helped to
enforce the deadly effects of
drunk driving among teens.
The Ocoee, Winter Garden
and Orange County police and


fire departments all provided
their services, in helping the
production run smoothly and
to show how a real crash.situ-
ation would be handled.
An ambulance was provided
to transport a "victim," and a
helicopter landed mid-field to
offer assistance to a more criti-
cally injured "victim."
Baldwin Fairchild supplied
a hearse to transport a "dead
victim," and a casket was pro-


vided and set up as the stu-
dents were dismissed from the
stadium to reinforce among
those watching that this is a
very real situation and hope-
fully to deter the students from
becoming one of the statistics.
Tears ran down the faces
of some of the senior class
members as they envisioned
the death of one of their class-
mates. It was a powerful morn-
ing for everyone involved.

The entire staff and students of Windermere Elementary
would like to extend a big thank-you to Dr. Barry and An-
drea Yarckin of West Orlando Pediatrics for their generous
donation of $1,500 to help purchase the school's very own
Automated External Defibrillator through a nonprofit orga-
nization called Saving Young Hearts. Saving Young Hearts
is committed to raising public awareness about Sudden
Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in children and young adults, as well
as striving to equip public schools and other locations in
the community. They train the staff to use these devices,
which can give anyone struck by SCA another chance of
survival. Each year more than 14,000 children die from
SCA, and it is the leading cause of death on school cam-
puses. Chances of survival decrease by 10 percent for ev-
ery minute defibrillation is delayed. On average, it takes
emergency medical teams in the U.S. 9 to 12 minutes to
arrive; however, that is not a worry now at WES as School
Nurse Sue and her trained staff members will be better
Equipped to respond immediately.

"The night my Justin was

which all contributed to his
death," Jamie McWilliams said.
"I'm here to increase aware-
ness in teens about the choices
they make and the impact of
those choices on the lives of
those that love them."
Her entire presentation em-
phasized taking responsibility
for one's actions and know-
ing that a single person has
the ability to alter events and
avoid horrific long-term con-
sequences.
"You've got a choice," she
said. "You can either be the
example or the statistic."
The message clearly reso-


ai
gE
gt


nated with the young adults.
"What Ms. McWilliams had
to say was really relevant to
us," said junior Jessica Dasher.
"I found myself admiring her
strength and determination to
change lives."
Jamie McWilliams'poignant
and emotional presentation laid
out the happenings of the night
her son was
killed, as
well as the
legislative
efforts she
and her
family sub-
sequently
made to
form and
pass the Jus-
tin McWil-
liams Act.
This act
made bit a
crime to
leave the
scene of an
accident
resulting
ms spoke to in injury,
e High seniors whetheritis
ht decisions. on private or
public prop-
erty.
Justin McWilliams was
killed on private property.
Prior to this act being passed,
charges could not be brought
against a driver striking a pe-
destrian if the incident took
place on private property.
She also went on to stress the
fact that Justin was an organ do-
nor. The woman who received
his corneas, Daphne Pfaff, was
present at the event.
"The bottom line is that I
want you to be here for your
10-year high school reunion
and many years after," stressed
Jaimie McWilliams,
"I want my message and
Justin's legacy to have an im-
pact on as many lives as pos-
sible."

Sunset Park
*K'. a^ M- 3z-


Hand-written letters to President Barack Obama from
18 2nd-graders at Sunset Park Elementary School were
on display at the University of Central Florida Library the
week of March 23. Topics in the letters included friendly
pen-pal-type subjects, as well as the need for lower ener-
gy prices. The class is also working to publish a book titled
'Fantastic Writers and Awesome Leaders' by June, In the
book, students are writing about the future of America and
ideas on solving some of the country's problems.


-Central Florida Chrisitan Academy -
I LAIuB[hiU J ,-k. .


Central Florida Christian Academy's 5th-graders came to
life as characters from the past in a mock museum setting.
All students completed a written report on a character, and
instead of traditionally giving a report in front of the class,
the students dressed up as their characters and stood life-
less in a mock museum until guests stopped in front of
them and pressed the card displaying their name. Imme-
diately, the characters came to life and gave a brief speech
about who they were and what they accomplished. Par-
ents, as well as other students and teachers, toured the
museum throughout the day. Pictured are Hailey Walker
as Eleanor Roosevelt and Alex Losada as Benjamin Ban-
neker

Winning is a Rush

lenge soccer tournament in Clermont. In their first 3 games, the young Rush girls tied a
strong team from Clermont and beat a solid team from Hunter's Creek, finishing 1st in
pool play. In the final match, the Rush girls squared off again against Lakeland and won
the championship 1-0 in the final minutes. Pictured are (l-r): front row, Emma Honis, Lily
