In brief
New elementary
school named
The Orange County
School Board selected the
name of Keene's Cross-
ing for the new elementary
school that relieves Sunset
Park and will open in August.
The board had three choic-
es that were a direct result
of community involvement.
The name is a combination
of the school's street name
(Keene's Pheasant Drive)
and the location of the school
in the Bridgewater Crossing
area. Also, R.D. Keene was
an orange grove owner who
later turned over the land in
Windermere for develop-
ment.

Windermere to promote safe boating


By Kathy Aber

Boating accidents are com-
mtn in Florida --a state that
has more than one million reg-
istered recreational vehicles.
Recent statistics show either
carelessness or inattention or
violation of a navigation rule
primarily caused 48 percent
of reported accidents. In ad-
dition. 90.6 percent of opera-
tors involved in a fatal boating
accident had no formal boater
education.
John Holmes, an education
officer with the United States
Coast Guard Auxiliary, re-
cently talked to Windermere's
Parks and Recreation Com-
mittee about boating safety
and explained that all those
under 21 who operate a boat
with more than 10 HP are re-
quired to\complete a safe boat-

end. She also said the commit-
tee is considering hosting one

Oakland plans new summer program for kids


By Atny Quesinberry


The town of Oakland is
spending $21,440 from its
impact fee fund to provide 11
weeks of Monday fun to its
young residents. The Town
Commission made a unani-
mous decision at its regular
Town Commission meeting
April 14 that the children
would benefit from organized
and supervised activities such
as sports, games, field trips,
parades and crafts.
The town's cleaning crew
is sprucing up the three parks
- VanderLey, Hull and Speer
- that will house the various
activities on different weeks.
Activities will begin June


8 and continue each Monday
throughout the summer break.
The program is designed for
elementary and middle school
children, but older kids who
want to participate can do so.
High school students need-
ing volunteer hours can assist
with the program.
There is no cost to partici-
pants, but children are asked
to sign up at Town Hall so
organizers can anticipate the
amount of supplies and snacks
needed each week. The pro-
gram runs from 9-11 a.m.
Who will be in charge?
Town Manager Maureen
Rischitelli, Administrative
Assistant Valerie Nedd and
Water Clerk Kiana Hagley.


"I'm hoping they're go-
ing to get out and meet and
realize they just live a street
or two over," Rischiteili told
The West Orange Times. on
Monday. "Then, maybe, on
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thurs-
day and Friday they can come
pick up a ball and start a pick-
up game."
The parks will offer T-ball,
soccer, volleyball, tetherball
and Fun Ball, and there will
"be picnic benches and grills
added where there are cur-
rently none.
In addition to the sports,
the town could have activi-
ties such as storytime, fishing,
movies, a dress-up parade and
visits to the police and fire sta-


tions and the Oakland Nature
Preserve.
Rischitelli said she will fi-
nalize the plans in a week or
two.
On another matter, the com-
mission addressed Edward
Johnson, a representative of
Orange County's Lynx bus
transportation system, who
was at the meeting at Oak-
land's request. Lynx is remov-
ing Link 27 which trans-
ported residents from Winter
Garden and Oakland to other
Orange County destinations
- from its bus service be-
cause of underutilization.

and a sense that we are on our
way to beating this disease.
Everyone who participates is
changed by this event, and that
is what makes it special, year
in and year out."
To start off the activities,

p.m.,: in which the children
who are cancer survivors will
walk the first lap around the
track. On the second lap, all the
survivors will take to the track,
and they will be joined by care-
givers on the third lap.
The annual luminaria cere-
mony will begin at 9 p.m. This
candlelit ceremony honors both
those who have survived can-
cer and those who have not.

Spring Fever chairperson thanks community for festival


Editor:


"Spring Fever in the Garden," presented by
Bloom & Grow Garden Society, had the larg-
est attendance in its nine-year history this past
weekend. Attendees came
from all over the state to t
witness the beauty of
this great area whether ,'
it was through the flow-
ers, wildlife, nature or just
witnessing the children's
excitement in our KID-
ZONE.
We are so thankful for
the partnership with the
City of Winter Garden.
We have some of the fin-
est employees, and work-
ing with them this past
year has been a joy. Jay I"
Conn, recreation director,
and Mary Mazza, recre-
ation supervisor, were present at all our planning
meetings, interjecting their ideas and resolving
problems. Elizabeth Robertson, manager for the
Parks Department, did an exceptional job with her
crew managing the "green machines" and taking
care of the maintenance of the event. They were
also present at our pick-up point and so helpful.
This festival would not be successful if it did
not have the support of so many organizations,
local schools and area churches. A big thank-you
to the Winter Garden Rotary members who were


present early Saturday morning to erect 25 tents
for Bloom & Grow and then return Sunday af-
ternoon to take them down. We thank all the high
school students and Winter Garden Boy Scout
troops for their participation. There were many
churches and other orga-
,lUS "nizations that contributed
,' %, to the "flavor of the festi-
val" by offering food for
our attendees.
Thank you, sponsors
and contributors, for your
cash and in-kind services
that you awarded Bloom
:& Grow so we could
continue to give back to
our communities. This
has been a tough year
for many individuals
and businesses with the
economy, but our spon-
sors, advertisers and con-
tributors came through
with their support.
On behalf of Bloom & Grow Garden Society,
I would like to thank everyone for their partici-
pation in "Spring Fever in the Garden 2009,"
especially our spouses and family members. This
group has already begun to plan for 2010, which
will be held April 10th and 11 Ith.

Why do people participate in Relay for Life?


Editor:
My name is Lois Stachelrodt, and, like many
people, I did not even know about the Relay for
Life events until one day I was asked to donate
and/or participate. I then learned what the Relay
for Life event was all about. My cousin in Penn-
sylvania did the relay in memory of her mother,
who died from leukemia. I wanted to participate at
that time, but did not know of any in the area.
Then I found out about the Relay for Life of
Stoneybrook last year, and I participated. It was
my first ever, and I am now hooked on participat-
ing. This year I am on the committee, and it is
a wonderful experience. I am still learning a lot
about the American Cancer Society and how the
Relay for Life works in conjunction with them.
I am also participating this year for a number of
reasons, but the main one is that my husband is
now a cancer survivor. He had bladder cancer and


has gone through the chemo treatments, and his
latest CT scan has come back clear.
Everyone has their own reasons for participat-
ing, but I believe that everyone has the same end
in site, and that is to find a cure for cancer.
This year, Relay for Life of Stoneybrook is be-
ing held at Whispering Oak Elementary School,
15300 Stoneybrook West Parkway, in Winter
Garden. It begins at 6 p.m. Friday, May 8, and
continues through the closing ceremonies around
9 a.m. on Saturday, May 9. Our theme this years
"Sports," and we will have entertainment, activi-
ties, food and fun. We still have room for more
survivors, caregivers and teams to sign up and
join us in the fight.
If you would like more information, please
contact Tammy Windon at twindon@cfl.rr.com
or 407-489-1967 or visit our web site at www.

Plato's Closet
offers affordable
clothing options
A tight economy doesn't
mean teens can't still be in
style. Plato's Closet of Ocoee
provides an affordable way for
teens and 20-somethings to stay
trendy throughout the season's
hottest clothing trends.
"Spring is a wonderful time
of year for local teens and
young adults to refresh their
wardrobes and their style, but
we know the economy is tak-
ing a toll on many people," said
Heidi Koch of Plato's Closet.
Young people can test out the
fashions of the season by visit-
ing Plato's Closet, a local re-
tailer that buys and sells gently
used, trendy, clothing for both
guys and girls. They can simply
sort through their closets, bring
in cool pieces they no longer
want to the store and walk out
with new fashions or money in
their pockets.
The new spring styles are
easy to achieve, and even
though the economy is tight,
they can still get the look of
the season by incorporating a
few basic elements into their
outfits. According to Koch,
the fashions in high demand
this year involve bold, femi-
nine pieces and intricate, col-
orful prints.
Plato's Closet is located at
11107 W. Colonial Drive in
the Old Time Pottery shopping
plaza.

Dining


Aji Sushi and Teppan


in Winter Garden Vi


Teppan chef Van Cao prepares ingredients at Aji.


Three of the 5 sushi chef's at Aji are (I-r) Lone, Danny and
Ben (the head chef)..


By Mary Anne Swickerath
You don't have to be crazy
about raw fish and shellfish to
love the Aji Sushi and Teppan
restaurant that opened several
weeks ago at the Winter Garden
Village at Fowler Groves. Yes,
owners Bo and Selena Peng do
offer high-quality sushi and
sashimi for those of us who
could eat the uncooked and
beautifully presented seafood
everyday, but the husband-
and-wife team has devised an
unusually varied menu of both
classic and signature rolls,
many of which feature cooked
seafood, such as the Butterfly
Roll with tempura white fish,
avocado, kiwi and strawberry
and the Mercedez Roll with
crunchy krab, smoked salmon,
smoked eel and avocado.
There is a separate teppan-
yaki room with six grill tables.
for nine diners each. The tep-
pan menu presents a total of
28 combinations, cooked right
in front of the guests, ranging
from $16.99 (chicken) to $36.99
Deluxe Combo (lobster, filet
mignon and shrimp). Teppan
proteins also include salmon,
scallops, calamari and New
York strip steak and come with
soup, salad,. vegetables, fried
rice and noodles. They are sub-
stantial meals. (There are also
Teppan menu items for children
under 10 for $8.99-11.99.)
And there is more: a com-
plete menu of hot cooked en-
tr6es, such as Chicken Teriyaki,
Crispy Honey Chicken, Soy
Pork, Chilean Sea Bass with
Ginger Scallion Sauce and
New York Strip Teriyaki and
Shrimp Tempura all served
with miso soup, ginger salad,
vegetables and rice.
Besides the dining room, tep-
panyaki and sushi-bar areas,
there is an attractive bar inside'
the front door and a patio for
dining al fresco.
The wine list is quite reason-
able and showcases wines from
California, Chile and Australia,
as well as a number of sakes
from both Japan and Califor-
nia.


opens


Ilage
In addition to all these riches,(
Aji also has appetizers, starters
and desserts (tempura cheese
cake looked tempting, but I had
more sushi than I could finish
during my visit).
The Pengs are both from
southern China and have lived
in Florida (where they met) for
eight years. Bo, at a young 36,
has been involved as both chef
and owner in sushi restaurants
for 15 years. He opened his
first one in Tennessee and his
second in south Orlando. Both
were subsequently sold, and he
and his wife are concentrating
on making Aji.a big success,
despite the soft economy.
"I'm doing my part for the
economy by working hard and
wishing for the best," said Bo,
who pointed out that Aji has
hired 30 employees, including
five experienced sushi chefs.
"We want this restaurant to
be a nice addition to the com-
munity in the Winter Garden
Village," he added. "We are
happy to be here."
The Pengs are proud to serve
their fresh, healthy and flavorful
food, and they feel thie,variety
of menu selections offers some-
thing special.fr everyone.
I believed Selena when she
leaned toward me and said,
"I enjoy taking care of my
customers and making people
happy."
My bet is there'll be more
happy people in West Orange
County when they discover
Aji.


A)i Sushi and Teppan is lb-
cated across from Bohnefish
Grill and Barnes & Noble in
the Winter Garden Village
(3251 Daniels Road, Suite 16).
The hours are 4-10 p.m. Mon-
day through Thursday, 4-10:30
p.m. on Friday, noon to 10:30
p.m. on Saturday and noon to
10p.m. on Sunday. Happy hour
featuring $4 beverages andsu-
shi selections is held 4-6 p.m.
'each day.


Bo and Selena Peng are the owners of Aji Sushi and Tep-
pan, the newest restaurant to open in the Winter Garden
Village.

Winter Garden/Oakland


SMembers of the Morse, Telegraph Club survey some of
their equipment on display during a telegraph demonstra-
tion in 2007 at the Central Florida Railroad Museum in
Winter Garden.

Old-time railroad telegraphy
Sto be demonstrated Saturday


S The methods and equipment
of early 20th-century railroad
telegraphy will be on display,
with hands-on participation,

graph on vintage equipment.
Members of the group will be

SStates.
Today, most railroad com-
Smunications are handled by
radio between the dispatchers

the 1970s, much of this was


handled by employees tapping
out the "dots and dashes" of
Morse code. Irv Lipscomb of
the Central Florida Chapter
of the National Railway His-
torical Society, said: "When I
was a boy.growing up in Win-
ter Garden, one of my friends
was the Atlantic Coast Line
Railroad agent. When I would
drop by to chat with him about
railroading, he would listen to
the telegraph sounder, carefully
minding the message, and carry
on a conversation with me at the
same time."
There is no admission charge,
and the Railroad Museum is lo-
cated at 101 S. Boyd Street. It
is open from 1-5 p.m.

It was such a beautiful day. I had
even rolled down the windows on
mm car and \ as enjoying the gentle
breeze that was blowing in with the
sound of birds chirping out their
spring song. As I rolled up to the
slop sign I thought. "It doesn't get
an) better than this!" .M) jo) dis-
played itself in the smile I flashed to
the carthat pulled up next to me.
And then I heard it. the loud thump-
ing of that low beat It not onlI rat-
tled m) eardrums but also shook the
rmrror on m) windshield "'Where
was it coming from?" My smile
quickly vanished as I swung my
head around, looking for the villain
who was stealing my serene day.
And there they were, right behind
me with their heads bopping to that
incessant booming rhythm.
Of course I did what any good
Christian would do. I rolled up my
windows, cranked Z88.3, and shot
them a look of disgust. Oh, I showed
them. That beat, that rhythm, that
cadence was not going to be mine.
God is clicking off a new rhythm for
us at Westwood. We've been hear-
ing it in His Word, feeling it in the
need of our world, and sensing it
from His Spirit.
...boom, boom...Treat people in
keeping with dignity of their cre-
ation
...boom, boom...Share with them
God's extravagant love through the
towel of service
...boom, boom...Move beyond
simply sharing that God exists to
expressing God's presence through
touching the forgotten
...boom, boom...Express your soli-
darity with those in pain through
choosing personal limits
It's loud and possibly for some,
even obnoxious. I pray Westwood
will choose to get-in-step, keep the
windows down, and bop to a new
rhythm. We need a new cadence.

well as a member of the board
of the Central Florida Florists
Association. A former editor
of the trade publication Sun-
lighting, he was a 2009 winner
of the Florida State Sunshine

Imelda at Betty J's Florist."

The Down Syndrome Asso-

host a fund-raiser and "Grand
Opening" party on Friday,
May 1, at 7:30 p.m. at the Or-

Camp Down, 3409 Maguire
Road, Windermere.
The event includes live and
silent auctions, live entertain-
ment and dinner and dancing.
Tickets are $35 and available
at the DSACF office or at the
door.
"It's a great evening for a
great cause," said Rick Strube,
auction committee mem-
ber. "We expect more than
250 supporters at this year's
event,"
Past items up for bid have
included autographed sports
memorabilia, vacations, res-
taurant gift certificates, theme
park passes and theater and
sporting event tickets.
Although the auction's
original purpose was fulfilled

is to pay off the mortgage.

bers Kroy Crofoot, Suzie
and John Provencher, Bryan
Crews, Becky Granato, Donna
McQuery and Joy McCoach,
has led the efforts to raise
funds to establish a resource
center for individuals with
Down syndrome and their
families. With continued suc-
cess, Strube said they expect
to pay off the outstanding
mortgage within five years.
Already hundreds of local
families have taken advantage
of the space by attending play-
groups and workshops on sign
language and social skills, as
well as receiving individual
support regarding financial,
educational and legal con-
cerns facing families with a
loved one with a disability.
DSACF serves more than
700 people in Central Florida.

Dr. Phillips


Mother-son team writes, produces play for Fringe


It's an idea Dr. Phillips resi-
dents (and mother and son) Lori
McCaskill and Andy Haynes
have been tossing around for
a couple of years.
Since they both love the
Christopher Guest movie Wait-
ing for Guffman, they thought
it would be fun to write a par-
ody of the "mockumentary,"
all about the city of Orlando.
Thus the premise for the play
was born.
Andy took the lead and soon
had 20 pages down on paper.
Mom Lori read them and
laughed herself silly. A 20-
year veteran of the Orlando
theater scene, it was easy for
McCaskill to recruit several
of her talented friends to be in
the production. She also wrote
song parodies for the show.
Haynes, a graduate of the
Dr. Phillips theater magnet
program and an entertainment


The mother-and-son team of Lori McCaskill and Andy

14A The West Orange Times Thursday, April 23, 2009


Oakland
bus route averaged nine pas-
sengers per hour, way below the
system average of 26.
But the commissioners argued
that the link is important to those
residents who rely on the bus ser-
vice to get to and from work and
school. This link also picks up
passengers in Winter Garden, but
Johnson said there are relatively
few Oakland users.
The elected officials shared
their aggravation with Lynx for
not notifying the town about the
route elimination sooner.
"Here's my issue," said Mayor
Kathy Stark. "We are a munici-
pality with ridership. It may be
small...but I don't think it's fair
to just leave us like this.
"I'm willing to bet we're the
only municipality with no op-
tion."
Commissioner Mike Satter-
field called it "terrible customer
service" and said Lynx officials
should have met with the town to
come up with another solution,
such as providing limited service
in the morning.and afternoon.
Eliminating the route, which
cost $600,000 annually to op-


rate, was one way for Lynx to
make necessary budget cuts.
About a dozen residents -
many of whom rely on the Lynx
bus as their only means of trans-
portation were at last Tues-
day's meeting, and some shared
their concerns.
Evangelina Kearse, president
of Tildenville Community De-
velopment, said her organization
didn't receive any notice of the
route change, and she worries
about the senior citizens who take
the bus to get to doctor's appoint-
ments and the children who ride
the Lynx bus to get to school.
Another man said he is at the
Circle K by 7 a.m. each morn-
ing to catch the bus and knows of
students who are at the bus stop
at 5 a.m. to get to West Orange
High School.
"Just don't cut it out of our
community," said Pastor Terry
Irby. "If you can do something,
please do something."
Orange County Commissioner
Scott Boyd attended last week's
Oakland meeting as well and'said
he will meet with Lynx officials
and stay in contact with the town

Warrior baseball beats Titans,


clinches 3rd straight Metro title

West Orange High's Mason Williams struck out 5 Olympia batters while allowing only 1
run in last week's victory.


The neighborhood rivalry
between West Orange and
Olympia reached new heights
last week when the Warriors
hosted the Titans, for a matchup
of two of the state's top-ranked
baseball programs.
Olympia (20-3) entered the
game with confidence after just
defeating Miami Coral Reef to
win the Orlando National Base-
ball Classic, but West Orange
prevailed 3-1 to claim bragging
rights and improve its overall
record to 20-1.
In a pitcher's duel, West Or-
ange's Mason Williams got the
best of Brett Winger. The War-
riors struck early when Nolan
Fontana led off with a single
and proceeded to steal second
base.
Nick Riley, who finished
3-for-3 on the night, knocked
in Fontana with a single. Albert
Lefran stepped up later in the
first inning and connected for an
RBI that brought Riley home.


The Warriors added an insur-
ance run in the fourth inning
after Riley led off wtih a base
hit and West Orange loaded the
bases. Andrew Floyd then drew
a walk off Winger to score Ri-
ley.
Williams struck out five
Olympia batters while allowing
only one run, which came in the
fifth inning. A Warrior error al-
lowed Trevor Siemian to reach
base and set up an RBI single
by Dom Attanasio.
Fontana took the mound for
West Orange in the seventh in-
ning when Olympia threatened
with runners at first and second
base with no outs. Fontana got
out of the jam to close out the
game and earn the save.
Last Friday night, West Or-
ange defeated Edgewater 5-2 to
clinch both the No. 1 seed for
this week's district tournament
and a third consecutive Metro
Conference baseball title for the
Warriors.


Blake Dieterich dominated
Edgewater from the mound,
racking up 15 strikeouts in six
and one-third innings.
Fontana, who pitched for
the final two outs to collect his
fourth save of the season, con-
nected for a pair of hits from the
plate and scored two runs.
Williams gave West Orange
an early lead by smacking a
two-run home run, but Edge-
water rallied to tie the game in
the sixth inning. In the bottom
of the seventh, Drew Floyd was
hit by a pitch and advanced to
third base off an Edgewater
throwing error.
WOHS Manager Jesse Marlo
then called for a squeeze play
bunt, and Austin Bousfield de-
livered to score Floyd.
The victory upped West
Orange's record to 21-1. The
Warriors host Bishop Moore
this Thursday, April 23, and
celebrate Senior Night for the
regular-season home finale.


DP boys race to Metro track title


In stunning fashion, the
Dr. Phillips High boys track
and field team upset favorites
Edgewater and Oak Ridge to
win its first Metro Conference
championship since 2002. DP
finished eighth in last year's
meet.

the Panthers included Novian

Heyen (seventh, 400m), Cha-

and Lin (eighth in 110m hur-

Cox captured first place; the
4xl00m relay team of Smith,
Andreis Norris, Marvin Ford
and Hart placed third; and the
4x400m relay of Norris, Alex
Heyen, Davis and Lewis took
fourth.
The Panthers will com--
pete this Friday, April 24,
for the district championship
at Showalter Field in Winter
Park.
The DP varsity girls track
and field crowned a pair of
individual Metro Conference


champs while the team placed
sixth at last Friday's meet. Dy-
nasty Jones won the title in the
400m, and the 4x800m relay
team of Erin Chance, Rachel
Boggs, Mary Vahle and Ka-
tie Cagle brought home the
gold as well. Second-place
finishes were recorded by
Boggs (1600m) and Chance
(300m hurdles), and other
top-eight finishers included
Monica Molnar (sixth, pole
vault), Chance (seventh, 100m
hurdles) and Cagle (seventh,
3200m). The 4xl00m relay
team of Quinn Farley, Emily

tarra Mayhue and the 4x400m
relay team of Dewaina Grant,

home seventh-place finishes.

Land Program. Amy Raub and Sherry Scott spoke to the
students about Florida wildlife. They talked about bears,
alligators, otters, turtles and deer native to Florida and
brought live snakes for the students to touch. They also
educated the kids about differences between omnivores,
herbivores and carnivores. To learn more about their pro-
gram, visit www.seminolecountryfl.gov/natland. Handling
a snake are Gunnar Kinney, Amy Raub and Peter Guaris-
co.

Last week the media center
at Lakeview Middle celebrated
National Library Week. Media
specialist Laura Brainard and
her Power Readers class cre-
ated several activities for the
students in order to share their
passion for books. Activities in-
cluded a book scavenger hunt,
making bookmarks, guessing
the title and authors and a card
catalog activity titled, "Do You


Know Your Destiny?"
For some suggestions of
great books to read and other
fun activities, check out Brai-
nard's book review blog at

tion, the next book fair is April
24 through May 1 in the media
center. Classes will be sched-

before school. Volunteers are
needed to assist, and anyone
who can help should e-mail

Ocoee High School Principal Mike Armbruster congrat-
ulates OHS senior James Taylor for being the 1st 2009
recipient of a dorm-room refrigerator stocked with good-
ies. Every Friday during the 4th quarter of the school year,
seniors who have submitted college acceptance letters
or military service papers are entered into a drawing for
the much-sought-after refrigerators. Funds for the refrig-
erators are raised by leadership classes to encourage stu-
dents to seek post-secondary opportunities.


Principal Mike Armbruster congratulates Ocoee High stu-
dent Trevor Morgan. Morgan was awarded a new iPod
from SAM Learning for using the online educational math/
science tutorial site for 41 hours during the third quarter.
That was more than twice as many hours as any other stu-
dent at OHS.

West Orange High


The Interact Club at West Orange High received the 2008-09 Rotary/Interact Presidential
Citation for its involvement in the community. At the Windermere Rotary Festival Among
the Lakes, the Interact Club raised a record amount of money for its various charities.
They are still counting, but the total is nearly $1,000 from the luncheon and bake sale.
Michelle Hassan and other Interact members participated both days of the last weekend
of spring break. Above, Interact Club sponsor Joyce Rose (from left) Nick Mitchell, Do-
minique Parris, Hassan and Alexia Lu work at the festival.


West Orange High School would like to thank the crew of Ladder Truck 22 from the Win-
ter Garden Fire Department who came out and assisted with repairs on the lights at the
stadium. The firefighters (Engineer Mark Belt and Firefighter Kevin Skinner, at left, and
Lt. Chris Baker, at right) are from the new fire station that just opened on Daniels Road.


The Orange County School
Board held its regular meeting
April 14, and its attorney, Frank
Kruppenbacher, presented the
results of his investigation of
the allegations that the board
had violated the federal court
order by not having the re-
quired number of members on
its Bi-Racial Committee.
The committee is a volunteer
group that reviews proposals
dealing with student transfers,
attendance zones and school
site selection.,
Kruppenbacher, flanked by
the Rev. Randolph Bracy of
the NAACP, Orange County
chapter, stated there was "no
violation of the federal court
order as it relates to the merg-
ing of schools or any prior re-
zoning."
He pointed out that the 1984
order, which superseded the
1970 order, called for the cre-
ation of the Bi-Racial Commit-
tee to function in an advisory
capacity.
"The document says the su-
perintendent and school board
can consider the input of the

Oakland Avenue Charter

this Saturday, April 25, from 7
a.m. to 2 p.m. One space for
the rummage sale is $20, and 2

reservations of the spaces will

Gentry, to participate in a Stu-
dent Ambassador trip this sum-
mer.
Sale participants may keep

The school encourages all Oak-
land Avenue parents who need

tools, and the school will provide
bags for the clippings. For more
details, call 407-877-2039.


committee, but it is not re-
quired," Kruppenbacher said.
He also contacted the attor-
ney for the plaintiff in the origi-
nal desegregation lawsuit, Nor-
man Chachkin, asking for his
opinion. Chachkin concurred
with the school board attorney's
findings.
In other action related to
the Bi-Racial Committee, the
school board approved new
members of the committee. Ac-
cording to committee bylaws,
five members must be white
and five must be black. Prior
to the board's action, the com-
mittee had vacancies.
The committee members
now are Rufus Brooks, Barbara
Page Bums, Billie Dean, Wayne
Golding, Eugene Roberson Jr.,
Anne Geiger, Nicole Guillett,
John Holysz, Larry Kahn and
Jim Martin.
The committee had received
attention recently because of
the rezoning process taking
place related to the proposal to
close or merge small schools.
With the board's approval, the
committee now has the required


number of members and will
give its opinions on the rezon-
ing plans before the board takes
any action. The committee met
April 15.
Board members discussed a
decrease in their salaries. The
Florida Legislature is current-
ly considering a salary cut for
School Board members. The
board approved the motion that
if the legislature makes those
salary cuts, the board will take
that reduction; however, if the
legislature does not make the
cuts, the board will take a cut
equal to the across-the-board
staff salary reductions if any
occur.
The board approved an agree-
ment with Beech Outdoor Ad-
vertising, which has proposed
to place advertising signs on
property owned by OCPS. The
agreement does not require an
economic investment from
the district but would provide
,OCPS with 50 percent of all net
revenue generated by the signs.
The signage also would provide
opportunities to promote dis-
trict schools and messages.

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


S"For this we say unto you by the word of the
Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the
coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which
are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from
heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archan-
gel, and with the trumpet pf God.
"And the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we
which are alive and remain shall be caught up to-
gether with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord
in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these
words."
SIn I Corinthiansl5:20: "But now is Christ risen
from the dead, and become the first fruits of them
that slept."
"In I Corinthians 15:22-23:"For as in Adam all
die, even so in Christ shall all be made aliveBut
every man in his own order; (in regards to the order
of the resurrection) Christ the first fruits; afterward
they that are Christ's at his coming."
After Adam sinned God told him, Genesis
3:19: "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread,

till thou are taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust
shalt thou return."
Genesis 2:7: "And the Lord God formed man
of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his
nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living
soul."
In II Timothy 2:15: Study to shewthyself ap-
proved unto God, a workman that needeth not to
be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
The body is the only part of a human that goes
in the grave. The soul and spirit never does.
Ecclesiastes 12:7: "Then shall the dust return to
the earth as it .was: and the spirit shall return unto
God who gave it. 'II Corinthians 5:8: "We are
confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent
from the body, (the soul and spirit) and to be pres-
ent with the Lord."
For myself, I will take God at his word, the
eternal God, the keeper of eternity.

Spring Fever draws big crowd to downtown W.G.


The beautiful weather and gorgeous plants drew many in the Garden. The 2-day festival offered garden-inspired
people to downtown Winter Garden on Saturday for the booths, which stretched all along Plant Street, as well as a
Bloom 'N' Grow Garden Society's 9th Annual Spring Fever variety of food vendors.


Bloom 'N' Grow members took turns at the T-shirt booth,
I-r: Delia Schley, Dixie Lyons, Mary Lyn VanDyke, Ginny
Ferdinand and Sonja Thomas.


There was an abundance of color in downtown Winter
Garden this weekend.


Allison Miller (left) of the Avian Reconditioning Center in
Apopka introduces Henry the barn owl during the festival.
Above, painted Adirondack chairs were auctioned off this
weekend.


The KidZone included games and activities for chil-
dren and a balloon-shaping stilt-walker.


John Pickels spent many hours on his sidewalk chalk design depicting Winter Garden as the 'Garden Spot
of Florida.'


Not only were plants and flowers for sale, but outdoor accessories and fun, na- A sure sign of spring.
ture-related d6cor were also available.
