Ocoee reverses vote on new

fire station in northwest area


The commission
also passed two
new ordinances,
one banning
smoking in some
areas of public
parks and one
imposing fines for
loud noise.

By Mary Anne Swickerath

The residents of northwest
Ocoee will not be getting a.
new fire station after all. The
City Commission voted last
week to rescind its earlier vote
approving the station, citing
the lack of funds necessary to
equip and man it. Winter Gar-


den, therefore, will continue
to provide fire service to that.
area.
Assistant City Manager Ja-
mie Croteau .told the mayor
and commissioners that a
permanent' station would cost
an estimated $3 million to
construct with ongoing an-
nual operating expenses com-
ing in around $1.5 million. A
temporary station would cost
roughly $753,000 with annual
operating costs of $670,000.
Both estimates were based on
putting the facility on land the
city already owns.
A fire fee would have gener-
ated funds for a fourth fire sta-
tion in the city,,but the elected
officials did not want to assess
citizens for the project at this
time.
The commission ended the


Discussion by voting to put the
$340,000 that was budgeted
for a temporary station this
fiscal year into a separate fund
to be used for a fire station in
District 1.in the future.
The commission also ap-
proved two new ordinances,
one aimed at banning smok-
ing from certain areas of city
parks and a second one levy-
ing fines for disturbingly loud
noise.
Commissioner Gary Hood
said he:had suggested the
smoking ban in order to pro-
tect children from secondhand
smoke while playing youth
sports or entering the Jim
Beech Recreation Center.
The new ordinance prohib-
its smoking at youth sports

Winter Garden

may impose new

water restrictions


The final public
hearing on
proposed new
watering rules will
be held April 23..
By Michael Laval
As warmer weather set-
tles in, many homeowners
are faced with a dilemma
- how to keep their lawns
green while trying to con-
serve water.
Winter Garden residents
will now have to also con-
tend with new restrictions
and regulations. The City
Commission approved the
first reading of a proposed
ordinance at last Thursday's
meeting to adopt standards
set by the St. Johns River
Water Management District
(SJRWMD).
The district has the au-i
thority to regulate con-
sumptive water use, which
includes water used for ir-
rigation purposes regardless
of whether the water comes
from ground or surface wa-
ter, from a. private well or
pump or from a public or
private utility.
SJRWMD recently
amended its irrigation rules
and is urging local govern-
ments to adopt and enforce
them.
"We are adopting the or-
dinance they [SJRWMD]
have written for us," said
Don Cochran, city Public
Services director.
The commissiontentative-
ly approved the ordinance
with a unanimous vote and
could pass the measure at
a public hearing scheduled
for the April 23 commission
meeting.
If passed, the new rule
would provide separate
landscape watering sched-
ules for daylight saving
and Eastern standard time.
During daylight saving, ir-
rigation would be allowed
two days a week per resi-
dence with even addresses
watering on Thursday and
Sunday andodd street num-
bers set for Wednesday and
Friday. Non-residential irri-
gation would take place on
Tuesday and Friday.
During regular Eastern
time, watering would be
limited to one day per week
with even addresses as-


signed to Sunday and odd
residences on Saturday.
SNo matter the time of year
or street address, though, ir-
rigation would be banned
between the hours of 10
a.m. and 4 p.m.
The proposed ordinance
also establishes penalties,
including a written warning
upon a first offense and a
$50 fine for a second viola-
tion. Each subsequent pen-
alty would result in another
$50 fine with a maximum
cap on fines set at $500.
In. another matter, the
commission passed a reso-
Slution informing the Nation-
al League of Cities (NLC)
of Winter Garden's intent
to participate in the NLC's
prescription discount card
program and work with
NLC and CVS Caremark to
implement the program to
the benefit of city residents.
NLC created a partner-
ship with CVS to offer NLC
members a discount pre-
scription card that is free
to the city and its residents.
The average savings is 20
percent off the regular retail
price of prescription drugs,
according to City Manager
Michael Bollhoefer.
The anticipated rollout
for the program is May 1.
Winter Garden will pro-
vide on'its Web site a link
to the NLC site where city
residents can print their pre-
Sscription discount card.
In other business, the
elected officials:

$2,456,674 for Segment I of

of the same intersection.

mission the project would

Home at Last family checks out local building sites


By Kathy Aber and
Amy Quesinberry

West Orange Habitat for
Humanity is excited about its
second Home at Last building
project a grassroots effort
to honor a combat-%wounded,
disabled veteran and family
with a new home.
A few weeks ago the non-
profit group based in Oakland
chose U.S. Army Spc. Marcus:
Griffin and his wife, Andrea,
to receive a new home to be
built in the West Orange com-
munity.
"When Marcus and I were
told that we were the selected
family for the Home at Last
II project with West Orange
Habitat for Humanity, we
cried like we had never cried
before," Andrea Griffin told
The West Orange Times on
Monday. "Never, ever, ever in
our wildest dreams did we re-
ally think that we would be the
recipients of such an enormous
gift. We thanked God out loud
- a lot!"
Escorted by local Habitat
representatives, the couple
and Andrea's parents toured
the area Saturday and looked
at potential building sites in
Oakland and Winter Garden.


"We were able to get ac-
quainted with West Orange
County," Andrea saidI "and it
was wonderful. We loved the
small-town charm of Win-
ter Garden, but we also fell
in love with Oakland and its
'Mayberry' feel.
"We are so excited that we
are going to be calling one
of the two cities home," she
added.
Habitat spokesman Bill
Criswell told The Times on
Monday, "The Griffins were
impressed with both towns.
We're trying to find a place
where they're comfortable and
then acquire the land."
,With input from the Grif-
fins, WO Habitat member Bill
Curdts will now start nego-
tiations to acquire a home site,
Criswell said.
WO Habitat is hoping to
break ground on the Griffins'
home by July 1 and has a finan-
cial goal of $300,000 to com-
'plete the home. In addition, a
committee is making plans for
a reception to officially wel-
come the soldier and his fam-
ily to West Orange County.
The event is tentatively set for
Tanner Hall in Winter Garden

Parks and Recreation Direc-
tor Jeff Hayes told the commis-
sion that he had researched
what other municipalities
have done in developing or-
dinances to protect citizens
from secondhand smoke in
public parks and found out that
a number of towns and coun-
ties had enacted such laws.
He recommended that Ocoee
do the same, and he explained
that this ordinance will allow
him to designate smoking areas
away from activities.
The anti-noise ordinance
will impose a $150 fine for
first violation and a $250 fine
for a second offense within a
I 12-month period. The Police
Infraction Hearing Board will
take up contested violations.
According to Police Chief
Charles Brown's report to the
commission: "This ordinance
makes it unlawful for any per-
son to make, continue or cause
to be made or continued any
loud, unnecessary or disturbing
noise which either annoys, dis-
turbs, injures or endangers the
comfort, repose, peace or safety
of others within the city or to

I appreciate James. He's an inter-
esting little man who became an
essential part of our community
about 8 years ago. I really don't
know much about his history. I
do know he lived with his mom
and dad until their deaths and later
with his aunt. Since her death,
he's been living in a group home,
acquainting each of us with his
roommates through his weekly
prayer requests.
If you visited on a weekend, you
probably would note James pres-
ence. In the 8 years of his partici-
pation in our community, he has
only missed 3 services. Not bad
for a 74 year old man who has
never held a driver's license. You
would see him milling around our
lobby, wearing his signature wind-
breaker and of course the stylish
hat of the day.
He has aq unusual giftedness. He
remembers birthdays. He knows
mine, my wife's, and both my
boys. And on any given day, he
will tell you the birthdays of many
a famous person. Though I find
this ability unique, it's not re-
ally what I find exceptional about
James. No, it's that he is an en-
courager, a giver of hope.
Every week he purposely finds me
at the end of services. He extends
his hand, looks me in the eye, and
encourages me with his words.
It's something I look forward to.
And hope couldn't be packaged
any better.
I feel the rhythm of Christ's hope
in James. I pray the cadence of my
Christian walk will match his and
that I too will be Christ's hope for
someone else.

Opinion


Editor,
I want you all to know about a special young
man who helped me April 8 early evening. His
name i Brian. I know he was my angel that
day, sent by God in my time of need.
My car had a flat tire, so I pulled over by
the park going south on Park. I had just begun
my call to AAA, and Brian pulled up right
behind me. He immediately took out his jack
and proceeded to change my tire. The tire
needed air, and Brian followed or led me to


three businesses before we found a machine
that worked.
Brian would not take any money from me.
He disappeared quickly after my tire was
inflated so I could drive home.
This young man was a gift and a blessing
yesterday. You never know when you might
encounter one of God's earth angels. I know
I did.

Senate President Atwater offers legislative update


Editor:
We have arrived at the halfway point of the
legislative session. While our task of balancing
the budget has been challenging, I believe we,
are moving forward in a responsible manner.
I am committed to provid-
ing for the immediate needs
of Floridians while ensuring
that today's decisions do not
burden our future generations
with fiscal challenged.
Floridians have elected their
leaders with an expectation
that we will maintain clarity
ard honesty in our dealings.
In order to increase account-
ability, we have legislation to
create a transparency Web site
that will allow anyone to view,
line by line, every expenditure
in Florida's budget.
We also remain committed
to improving Florida's eco-
nomic footing. The Senate has
advanced the most significant
improvement to Florida's growth management
process since the mid-1980s. This legislation
will incentivize and stimulate development
and redevelopment in urban areas through a
streamlined process that will help create jobs


and recruit new businesses to our state.
As we are encouraging growth in our state,
we are also ensuring the protection of important
. safeguards for our environment. The Senate is
looking at ways to position Florida as a leader in
alternative energy, not only protecting our state
today, but also taking steps
towards revitalizing Florida's
natural beauty for tomorrow.
SEducation in our state re-
mains an important discussion
in our budget meetings. A first-
class education is imperative
in order to advance a strong,
educated, self-sufficient work-
force. I have pledged that
classroom funding will not be
reduced. Therefore, the Sen-
ate's budget maintains current
classroom funding levels. In
addition, we are moving leg-
islation that requires 70 per-
cent of all education funding
be spent directly in the class-
rooms.
As we enter the final weeks
of session, I am confident that the steps we are
taking today will build a stronger tomorrow.

Brummer discusses committee hearing on septic tanks


It is unusual for a committee in the Florida
Legislature to meet on Friday after 9 a.m. It is
unusual for a committee to meet at the midway
point of the legislative session. Most committee
hearings for legislation have been completed
by the mid-point of session, and Fridays and
Monday are travel days for legislators to return
to the families and constituents.
April 3, then, was doubly extraordinary. Rep.
Trudi Williams, an environmental engineer from
Fort Myers, held a committee hearing regarding
the Department of Health's (DOH) proposed
rule for septic systems in the Wekiva Study
Area. Rep. Williams, chair of the Agriculture
and Natural Resources Committee, became
aware of DOH's proposed rule from the con-
cerns expressed by Rep. Bryan Nelson.
Rep. Williams' experience and professional
training made her immediately recognize the
folly and wrong-headedness of the DOH pro-
posed rule requiring performance-based septic
systems in the Wekiva Study Area. It usually a
challenge to have people understand all of the
issues involved in the rule proposed by DOH
and the impacts upon users of performance-
based treatment systems (PBTS). Rep. Williams
knows and understands the science, the technol-
ogy and the impacts.
I will venture that the meeting was for the
vast majority of the Agriculture and Natural Re-
sources Committee an eye-opening experience.
The committee members listened patiently to
experts in the science and technology of sep-


tic systems and to the experiences of installers
familiar with PBTS. The committee also heard
from Orange County Commissioner S. Scott
Boyd and from me.
For more than one and a half hours, people
made the case why DOH should not go forward
with its proposed rule. The committee members
asked cogent questions regarding the proposed
rule, the ongoing studies of nitrogen contribu-
tion and the ongoing decline in the level of ni-
trogen in the Wekiva River and its contributing
springs..
As the questions continued, you could sense
that the committee members were incredulous.
An almost unanimous question of how could
DOH be going forward with the rule and what
would it take to make them to stop?
The answer came in the last 30 minutes of the
meeting. During the last 30 minutes, DOH staff
told the House Committee that they would go
forward with the rule. DOH staff made it clear
to the committee members that only legislation
would cause them to rethink its position on forc-
ing homeowners in the Wekiva Study area to
implement the hugely expensive, quality-of-life-
changing, high-failure-rate performance-based
septic systems.
From committee member comments after the
meeting, I can tell you that House members were
appalled at the arrogance of the DOH staff.

Orange County Commissioner

Burch earns green Realtor designation


Lorraine Burch with Avalar

designation.
Burch achieved the status
after completing 18 hours of
course work designed for Real-

Green Designation Core Course
program. The courses were de-
signed to ensure thatdesignees
gain knowledge of green homes
and buildings and issues of sus-
tainability in relation to real es-
tate.
More specifically, Burch was
trained in understanding what
makes a property green, help-
ing clients evaluate the costs and
benefits of green building fea-
tures and practices, discussing
the financial grants and incen-
tives available to homeowners
and helping consumers see a
property's green potential.

built by Jefferson Burch.
Lorraine Burch said her per-
sonal dedication to the natural
environment includes a com-
mitment to the Oakland Nature
Preserve and trying to limit her
own carbon footprint.
"This year, I bought an energy
monitor for my home," Burch
said. "We learned that simply


unplugging all electronics and
turning the heating/air condi-
tioning to a very low setting
when we're not home signifi-
cantly reduces our energy us-
age."

Club, attended this spring's
four-day Rotary Youth Leader-
ship Awards (RYLA) program
at the Hilton Hotel in Alta-
monte Springs, sponsored by
the Rotary Club of Ocoee.
RYLA is a, district-admin-
istered program of Rotary
International aimed at devel-
oping qualities of leadership
and good citizenship in high-

seminar, camp or workshop.to
discuss leadership skills and
to learn those skills through
practice.

lect participants and facilitate
the event's curriculum with the
aim of demonstrating Rotary's
respect and concern for youth,
providing an effective train-
ing experience for selected
youth and potential leaders,
encouraging leadership of
youth by youth and recogniz-


ing publicly young people who
are rendering service to their
communities.
Lyndsay, who is president of
the OHS Interact Club, thanked
the Ocoee Rotarians and said:
"This was such an amazing
experience. I learned so many
things about Rotary and lead-
ership, as well. I learned about
Interact and how it is at other
schools, and it inspired me to
build Interact at Ocoee High.
For the remainder of this year
and next, I am going to be put-
ting a lot more effort into In-
teract than I ever have before,
and I hope Rotary continues
to stand behind our club and
everything we do."
Brianna spoke to the Rotary
members at a breakfast meet-
ing following her RYLA expe-
rience and said that, although
she was a little homesick at
times, she was.very happy and
grateful that she was able to
attend the weekend program.
She added that it was not just
speakers and discussion groups
but.a lot of fun and games, as
well as a great learning expe-
rience that would help her in
the future.

k Olympia students


create own cities


This month, 94 Olympia
High School juniors and se-
niors will become finance di-
rectors, marketing directors,
city liaisons, neighborhood
liaisons and site planners
through their involvement with
UrbanPlan, the Urban Land In-
stitute Central Florida's (ULI)
land-use planning and real-
estate development program.
More than 25 members of ULI
will participate and mentor the
students as they develop plans
to revitalize a hypothetical de-
teriorated city.
UrbanPlan will return to
Olympia High School through-
out April. The school has in-
vited ULI's members into its
classrooms, where student
development teams will re-
spond to a "Request for Pro-
posal" for the redevelopment
of a blighted neighborhood in a
hypothetical community. Each
team member will assume one
of five roles: finance director,
marketing director, city liaison,
. neighborhood liaison and site
planner.
Over the course of the three-
week project and prior to pre-
sentations, trained ULI volun-
teers who are local land-use
professionals will interact
several times with the student
. teams as facilitators, chal-
lenging the students to think
critically about the UrbanPlan
issues and the specific respon-
sibilities of their job. Facilita-
tion days were set for April 14
and April 21.
"UrbanPlan reinforces eco-
nomic concepts such as market
demand, scarcity and opportu-
nity cost, and the use of pro-
fessionals from the commu-
nity throughout the program
provides the students with a
real-world perspective that is
second to none," explains Ja-
son Lee, a teacher at Olympia
High.
"UrbanPlan brings the ab-
stract concepts of the class-
room to life; it brings my cur-
riculum to life like nothing else
can."
Teams will address balanc-
ing market-based forces such
as consumer demand, financial
return and design issues with


non-market-based forces such
as social and political issues;
develop a financial model; cre-
ate a three-dimensional model
out of Legos of their plan; and
present their proposal to a "City
Council" of ULI members who
will award the development
contract to the team that pres-
ents the most responsive plan
and compelling vision.
The City Council presenta-
tions will take place Tuesday,
April 28.
"Presentation day is one of
the more unique experiences
my students receive in high
school," said Lee. "They aren't
trying to impress their, teachers
and peers but must impress a
group of professionals. They
stop worrying about their
grades and begin to focus on
presenting the best work they
possibly can. The results are
typically outstanding."
Upon completion of Urban-
Plan, students will understand
three fundamental principles:
The built environment does
not happen by accident or by
mandate.
Good development must
accommodate market reali-
ties, as well as public needs
and desires.
Our actions as citizens and
consumers influence what is
built, when it's built and where
it's built.
"The U.S. will add 60 mil-
lion people in the next 20
years, and as the population
grows, today's teens will be
called upon in the future to
make increasingly difficult
land-use decisions as they take
on their adult roles as voters,
neighbors, community lead-
ers, public officials and land-
use professionals," said ULI
Central Florida Chair Gregg
Logan. "The UrbanPlan pro-
gram addresses these issues by
working to change the land-
use decision-making process
by providing students with
the understanding, insights
and language to become en-
gaged and informed problem
solvers."

1-25th Stryker Brigade Com-
bat Team Battalion 1-5 Infan-
try Alpha Company, was one
of 16 trained K-9 handlers.
They and their specially
trained dogs were deployed
to Iraq to locate and detect
land mines.
On his second deployment
in Iraq, he was seriously
wounded from the blast of
an Improvised Explosive
Device.
While conducting a build-
ing search with his dog in
the small village of Buquba
in November; Griffin and an-
other solider sustained seri-
ous injuries in an IED explo-
sion. His dog, Jok, was killed
instantly.
Griffin and Jok were both
awarded Purple Hearts.
Marcus has two surgeries
left before "he's put back to-
gether," his wife said.
He has already had two sur-
geries on his face to repair his
shattered orbital bones and
seven surgeries on his legs to
repair damage from shrapnel

coming from the blast. Both
eardrums were ruptured, and
he had surgery Monday to
repair his right ear. Another
surgery is scheduled to try to
help him regain hearing in his
left ear.
He has 20/60 sight in his
right eye and is legally blind
in the other. Titanium plates
were installed where Griffin's
orbital bones were shattered
to keep his eyes in place. He
still needs surgery to repair a
detached retina.
And he suffers from night
terrors due to Post-Traumatic
Stress Disorder. The soldier
has weekly visits with a phys-
ical therapist and regular vis-
its with a psychiatrist, men-
tal psychologist, audiologist,
pain management specialist
and ophthalmologist.


Most of the appointments
are at the Orlando VA Hos-
pital, but the Griffins have to
make an occasional drive to
the Tampa VA Hospital and to
*specialists located from Win-
ter Haven to MetroWest.
WO Habitat urges the West
Orange community to join in
this effort to make a differ-
ence in the lives of this young
veteran and his family.
"Spc. Griffin has served our
country well and faithfully;
Now it is our opportunity for
the community to show ap-
preciation to Marcus for his
service and sacrifice," said
Criswell.
To contribute to this proj-
ect, checks can be made out
to West Orange Habitat and
designated for Home at Last
II. The mailing address is P.O.


Box 38, Oakland, FL 34760.
WO Habitat completed its
first Home at Last project last
November when it dedicated
a home in Oakland for Sgt.
Joshua Cope and his family.
WO Habitat raised $300,000
to complete the first Home at
Last house.
As part of its fund-raising
effort, WO Habitat is spon-
soring its annual 5K Run on
Saturday, May 2, in Oakland,
and Sgt. Cope will be the of-
ficial race starter.
Race entry forms are avail-
able from Race Director

There will be a special Or-
ange County household haz-
ardous waste and electronic
waste community collection
this Saturday, April 18, from
8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Orange
County Services Building, 475
W. Story Road in Ocoee.
Many household products
contain dangerous chemicals
that require special handling. If
not properly disposed of, these
chemicals can harm humans,
animals and the environment.
Burying the chemicals in
the ground or pouring them
down storm drains or sinks
can result in groundwater pol-
lution. Since most of Florida's
drinking water comes from
groundwater, improper dis-
posal of these chemicals poses
a threat.
To determine if a product
might be hazardous, look for
any of these words on the la-
bel: pesticide, warning, caus-
tic, poison, acid, danger or
flammable.
Some examples of these
items, which are not collected
at curbside, are paint, paint
thinners, batteries (except
alkaline/non-rechargeable),
cleaning fluids, herbicides,
pesticides, varnishes, used
motor oil, antifreeze and brake


fluid, pool chemicals and pro-
pane tanks up to 100 pounds.
Before bringing materials
to the community collection
event, do the following:
If the material is still us-
able, use it up. Label the ma-
terial, but if you are not sure
what it is, write "unknown."
Do not mix different or un-
known materials together.
If containers are leaking,
pack them in a larger container
with absorbent material (such
as kitty litter).
Use boxes with dividers
for easy packaging and trans-
port. Do not bring biologically
active materials, radioactive
materials, explosives, ammu-
nition or tires.
Household hazardous waste
can also be brought to either
of these permanent locations:
Orange County Landfill, 5901
Young Pine Road, Orlando,
Monday-Sunday, 8 a.m. to 5
p.m.; and McLeod Road Trans-
fer Station, 5000 L.B. McLeod
Road, Orlando, Wednesdays
and Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
(This location does not accept
electronic waste.)
For more information, call
the Orange County Utilities
Solid Waste Hotline at 407-
836-6601.

Olympia wins

National Baseball

Classic in extra inning
The Olympia High varsity baseball team (19-2) won the Orlando
National Baseball Classic in dramatic fashion last Friday night,
defeating Miami Coral Reef 8-5 in extra innings at Tinker Field.
Facing two strikes in the ninth inning, Matt LaBerge connected
for a base hit that drove in Jesse Winker, who raced from second
base to home plate and beat out the catcher's tag to break a 5-5
tie. Zach Maddox stepped up next and knocked in two runs to seal
the victory for Olympia.
Steven Coley pitched six strong innings with seven strikeouts,
and Pat Lothrop pitched the final three innings in relief to pick up
the win. Olympia carried a 5-2 lead heading into the seventh and
final inning of regulation, but errors helped enable Coral Reef to
rally to tie the game and force extra innings.
Winker was named the tournament's MVP and had two hits in
the tournament finale. Maddox, David Willis and Chris Taladay
also added two hits each on Friday. Through four tournament
games, Olympia outscored its opponents 43-21.
Earlier in the tournament, the Titans defeated Florida Christian
12-7 with a six-RBI performance by Trevor Siemian that included
a single and a grand slam. A.J. Mackey and Dom Attanasio each
had a pair of hits, and Coley worked the final three innings in
relief of Lothrop.
Olympia crushed Miami Palmetto 19-4 to reach the champion-
ship final. The Titans bombarded Palmetto with eight first-inning
runs, including a three-run home run by Attanasio. Junior pitcher
Brandon Keen allowed only one hit and one run through four in-
nings while racking up five strikeouts.
Next for Olympia would be a titan district challenge against
rival and defending district champion West Orange, set for this
Wednesday, April 15.

DP girls water polo
edges out Olympia
Elysia Dytrych's goal with 38
seconds left in the match gave
the Dr. Phillips High varsity
girls water polo team a 5-4 vic-
tory over rival Olympia.
The Lady Panthers (11-3) fell
behind 3-0 before Katie Goulden
got DP on the board with three
minutes left in the half. With
just 40 seconds to go before the
break, Nicole Gaynor found the
back of the net to close the gap
to 3-2 at halftime. The score
remained the same through
the third quarter, but with one
second remaining, goaltender
Marisa Gaynor fired a shot to
beat the buzzer, tying the match
at 3-3.
With only 59 seconds left in
the game, Nicole Gaynor came
through again to give the Lady
Panthers their first lead at 4-3,
but Olympia knotted the score
again just 13 seconds later.


The Olympia High varsity
girls lacrosse team earned two
big victories in the District 5
playoffs to capture its second
consecutive district champi-
onship.
In the finals, the Lady Ti-
tans played rival West Orange
and earned a well-fought 12-9
victory to secure the title and
improve to 16-3 on the season.
Olympia played a strong de-
fensive game led by defenders
Brianne Ferone, Katy Petrisin,
Mary. Catherine Kelley and
Lindsay Pitt, and goalie Elyse
Delisle added 10 key saves to


help preserve the victory.
Carly Garrison led the Lady
Titans with four goals, while
Karley White added three
goals and two assists and Ra-
chel Slocum chipped in with
three goals and one assist.
Alana Cato added a goal and
a pair of assists, and Jessie
Ericson also provided a goal
and an assist.
Earlier last week, Olympia
defeated Bishop Moore 20-9
in the district opener. With a
great team effort, the Lady Ti-
tans started with a 13-4 first-
half lead and finished strong


for the victory.
Garrison led the way for the
Lady Titans with five goals
and two assists, and Cato
and White both had four goals
and two assists. Additional
scorers for the Olympia were
Slocum with three goals and
two assists, Ericson with two

am proud of the girls, and we
are looking forward to the play-
offs."

from Golden Pond Communities to participate in weekly interactions this year. The in-
cluded academics, arts and crafts, games and celebrations. The program was spon-
sored by AgeAdvantage Home Health Care Services. Working together, with the help of
educational consultant Leigh Elliott, the students learned how to relate to the elder
population. The students and seniors spent more than 650 hours learning from each
other during the past 7 months. Pictured are Team Golden members (l-r): in fron/, Tay-

The seniors at Central Florida Christian Academy took the traditional field trip to the Pea-
body Hotel. There they were able to meet and interview a panel of managers, including
the vice president, Mr Villaverde. This opportunity allowed students to get information
first-hand about the hotel industry and job opportunities. The group toured the duck
palace, the kitchens where the chefs were preparing food, the laundry department and
conference rooms and then had lunch provided by the hotel's B-Line Express restaurant.

We depend on a higher power. In Leviticus.

Upcoming 7th-graders should begin

required immunization process


An important step in prepa-
ration for each new school year
is up-to-date immunizations.
The Orange County Health
Department's School Health
Program is starting early to
help parents with the immu-
nization process. Through the
Middle School Initiative, the
health department is working
diligently in preparing middle
school students for the next
school year because required
vaccines must be complete
prior to a child entering sev-
enth grade.
"By participating in the
Middle School Initiative at the
child's school, parents can al-
leviate the need to obtain im-
munizations elsewhere and
avoid standing in long lines
this summer, as well as con-
.tinue to protect their child's


health," said Dr. Kevin M.
Sherin, director of theOrange
County Health Department.
In its fourth year, the Mid-
dle School Initiative is a pro-
gram that targets sixth-grade
students who will need the
immunizations required to
enter school for the 2009-10
school year (seventh grade) at
35 middle schools in Orange
County.
The initiative runs from
April to May, and the vaccines
are free to students.
Schools have sent home
with students or by mail a let-
ter to parents, as well as re-
quired forms to be completed.
It is imperative that students
return the paperwork to the
school in order to receive the
vaccines.
Before children can register


Summer camps at First Baptist Windermere

clothing, as well as create a
portfolio of sketches and a
swatch library. The camp is for
children who have completed
second through fifth grade.
The fee is $75.
Boomerang Express Vaca-
tion Bible School is June 22-
26. Children will take a "ride"

to discover the greatness of
God's love. Morning session

cial-needs session is offered,
also. Children 4 years through

istration fee is $10.


Livin' Inside Out (in an up-
side down world) is the theme
of the music camp July 6-10.
Children who have completed
grades one through five will
learn the music, drama and
set design and then perform on
Friday evening. Campers will
need to bring a snack and lunch
each day. Fee is $80.
Architectural Study and Inte-
rior Design is offered July 13-
17 from 9 a.m. to noon. Sharp
will guide children to design
their own houses, using fabrics

Tildenville


for school, parents must pro-
vide documentation (Depart-
ment of Health Blue 680 Form,
certification of Immunization)
showing proof of vaccination
against many vaccine-prevent-
able diseases. While there may
be mild side effects such as a
low-grade fever, getting im-
munized is much safer than
getting the disease.
Vaccines offer safe and ef-
fective protection from infec-
tious diseases. By keeping
children up-to-date on the rec-
ommended vaccines, parents
can protect them, their families
and friends and their school
community from serious, life-
threatening infections.
