-Ocoee OK's cutting-edge software to expedite development process


The software was
created by UCF to
improve services
and to save local
governments money.
By Mary Anne Swickerath

Imagine going to the city of Ocoee's
Web site to apply for and then pull a
permit for a new fence on your prop-
erty without leaving your home or
office. That kind of interactive process
will soon be available for residents,


out-of-city property owners, business-
es, builders and developers.
Last week, the City Commission ap-
proved spending up to $150,000 for
a new development services software
system created by the University of
Central Florida to make the building
and development process more effi-
cient for local governments.
"We can save a lot of man hours. We
can save a lot of money," said Craig
Shadrix, the city's development ser-
vices director, about 'implementing
this software.
In his report to the commission,
Shadrix explained that the UCF soft-


ware "manages building permitting,
development review, planning and
zoning issues, business tax certifica-
tion and all other development ser-
vices."
In addition, he reported, "The soft-
ware platform has already been evalu-
ated by the city's Information Technol-
ogy Division and determined to be 100
percent compatible.", ,
This new technology will mean that
Ocoee is the first municipality to offer
online permitting.
The software guides customers step
by step and will not let them make a
mistake in the permitting process, add-


ed Shadrix.
UCF has designed the software sys-
tem so that it provides a high level of
accessibility both to the city and to the
citizens who will be able to see where
their specific permits are in the ap-
proval process at any time.
Shadrix said this system will allow
the city to upgrade its Comprehensive
Plan and its Land Development Code,
an important:aspect of getting projects
through the development process.
"We have a long way to go to be-
come a more efficient organization,"

New city park to open in


Winter Garden Saturday


The building boom in south
Winter Garden over the last
10 years, has brought many
new roads and rooftops to the
area once blanketed with cit-
rus groves.
The city of Winter 'Garden,
.however, has added a new
scene-to the landscape. At 10
a.m. this Saturday, May 2,
the city will open the Brad-
dock Park Athletic Complex


at 13460 Lake Butler Blvd.
Built on land adjacent to the
city cemetery, it houses two
softball fields, two multi-
purpose fields, a playground
and a concession stand with
restrooms.
The $2.98-million park
construction cost was almost
entirely paid for by recreation
impact fees that the city col-
lected from developers, with


a portion also coming from a
grant from the state of Flor-
ida.
This facility is the first new
developed park opened by the
city since the Chapin Station
Park was constructed on the
West Orange Trail in 1999
in cooperation with Orange
County. The new park is being

A decision could
be made at a May
8 public hearing.
By Michael Laval
Winter Garden's elected of-
ficials are thinking twice about
adopting new water restric-
tions set by the St. Johns River
Water Management District
(SJRWMD).
At their April 9 meeting, the
city commissioners seemed,
ready to do that when they
unanimously approved a first
reading of a proposed ordi-
nance that was, according to
Public Services Director Don
Cochran, actually written by
SJRWMD. Last Thursday,
though, the commission de-
cided to postpone a vote that
,could have passed the restric-
tions.
The district has the author-
ity to regulate consumptive
water use, which includes wa-
ter used for irrigation purposes
regardless of whether the wa-
ter comes from ground or sur-
face water, from a private well
or pump or from a public or
private utility.
SJRWMD recently amend-
ed its irrigation rules and is
urging local governments to
adopt and enforce them.
District 2 Commissioner
Bob Buchanan said he had
received complaints from
constituents questioning how
SJRWMD could endorse
withdrawing groundwater for'
Niagara bottled water in Lake
County while placing new re-
strictions on residential use.
When asked why it was
important to adopt the restric-
tions, City Manager Michael
Bollhoefer told the commis-
sion it would be beneficial to
the city in its negotiations with
the district on other.vital is-
sues.
"If St. Johns decides that a
city is not working with them
to conserve water, then they
can come down a lot harder
when it comes to further re-
-strictions," Bollhoefer said.
The more than five million


gallons of groundwater used
daily by Winter Garden, Boll-
hoefer said, exceeds the city's
Consumptive Use Permit with
SJRWMD, but the district has
been giving the city extensions
for cooperating on conserva-
tion measures. Winter Gar-
den is working to upgrade its
reclaimed water system and,
when finished, it will provide
the city with an additional 2.2
million gallons per day.
"You can never say what
St. Johns will do" if Winter
Garden doesn't adopt the. re-
strictions," Bollhoefer said.
"We've had a good relation-
ship in the. past, but they might
decide to hold us to a two-mil-
lion-gallon-per-day limit, and
then we'd have to cut back."
The commission, which did
not include an absent Gerald
Jowers, decided to postpone
the public hearing for further
study until its May 8 meeting.
Bollhoefer assured the board
that the short delay shouldn't
offend SJRWMD.
If passed, the new water rule
would provide separate land-
scape watering schedules for
Eastern Daylight and Eastern
Standard times. During day-
light saving time, irrigation
would be allowed two days a
week per residence with even
addresses watering on Thurs-
day and Sunday anodd street
numbers set for Wednesday
and Friday. Non-residential
irrigation would take place on
Tuesday and Friday.
During regular Eastern time,
watering would be limited to
one day per week with even
addresses assigned to Sunday
and odd residences on Satur-
day.
No matter the time of year
or street address, though, ir-
rigation would still be banned
between the hours of 10 a.m.
and 4 p.m.
The proposed ordinance also
establishes penalties, includ-
ing a written warning upon
a first offense and a $50 .fine
for a second violation. Each
subsequent penalty would

Vandalism targeted on Winter Garden's east side


By Michael Laval
Harold Bouler talked about
bringing change to Winter
Garden's east side long before
the word became a presiden-
tial campaign slogan.
Having recently begun
his second term as District 3
,commissioner, Bouler said he
has' made some progress but
there's still a way to go. That's
most evident to him now as
he sets his sights on stopping
vandalism that has plagued his
home district.
"It's time the community
started taking responsibil-
ity for itself," Bouler told The
West Orange Times.
The most visible and expen-
sive acts of vandalism have
, targeted fences and signs near
Bay Point apartments, located
off llth and Center streets,
The community, which Bouler
points to as a success story for
,upgrading its apartments and
helping root out criminal ac-
tivit in recent years, has been


the area's biggest victim.
The iron fence surrounding
the property is damaged at
several points where bars have
been bent apart wide enough
for people to pass through.
Even though the fence already
provided numerous points of
entry, Bouler said he believes
the openings were made to
create easier escape routes for
those fleeing police.
The most blatant vandalism
at Bay Point apartments is a
50-foot section of the fence
that is now missing. According
to property manager Minnetta
Garmony, the entire fence had
recently been replaced at a cost
of approximately $30,000. It
stood for less than three weeks
before someone used a vehicle
to knock it down.,
A couple of blocks north on
llth Street, the large wooden
sign marking the entrance of
the Horizon Oaks neighbor-
hood is in shambles. A panel

Harold Bouler, Winter Garden's District 3 commissioner, points out vandalism that has
plagued Bay Point apartments and other parts of Winter Garden's east side. Bouler is
trying to rally the community to stop the problem.

Park
(Continued from 1A)
named after Orange County
Deputy'Grady T. Braddock,
who lost his life in a traffic col-
lision while on duty in 1998 at
the intersection outside of the
park entrance.
"It has been nearly a four-
year process since talks of this
park began," said Jay Conn,
Winter Garden parks and rec-
reation director, "and we're de-
lighted to finally see it come to
fruition."
Conceptual plans for this
park were first introduced at
public meetings during the
development of the 2005 park
and recreation master plan.
The plan helped to highlight
the fact that although many of
the new subdivisions in Win-
ter Garden incorporated small
playgrounds, pools and picnic
areas in to their developments,
few had built athletic fields that
would accommodate the needs
of many of the new young fami-
lies in the area.
The city will start a youth
soccer program open to chil-
dren ages four and older that
will take place at Braddock
Park. In addition, the city adult
softball leagues will be moving
to this facility from its current
home at -Veterans Memorial
Park.
Planned from 10 a.m. to 2
p.m., the grand-opening event
will include a dedication cer-
emony and ribbon-cutting at 10
a.m., with food, games, prizes,
bounce houses, a softball tour-
nament and soccer exhibitions
to follow. ,
The festivities are free and
open to the public. For more

Donations and
volunteers are
needed to help
the more than
400 seniors on
the waiting list.

By Kathy Aber

"I'm disabled and on a walker
all the time. I have no means of
cooking anything because I'm
afraid I'll drop something or
burn myself," said a 90-year-
old Winter Garden woman who
receives a Meals on Wheels de-
livery five days a week.
She talked to The West Or-
ange Times Monday about
what she called a "very impor-
tant" program but asked that her
name be withheld because she
lives alone.
"Meals on Wheels is a bless-
ing. So many of the elderly
depend on it," said the Winter
Garden senior. "Now, I can have
nutritional meals."
The Winter Garden resident
said she receives a hot lunch of
meat, vegetables and mashed po-
tatoes and cold breakfast items
- cereal, fruit, milk, bread and
butter each weekday.
She emphasized how people
living alone often just pick up
something quick and easy to fix
and omit fruits and vegetables.
Volunteers have been deliv-
ering meals to her five days a
week for the past eight months.
The Winter Garden recipient
admires the volunteers because
they donate their time, and each
comes faithfully once a week.
"If I'm having a rough day,
they would help me because
they're all such lovely people,"
said the local woman.
"It helps to have someone
stop in and say, 'Hi, how are you
doing today?' With older people,
it's very important."
She's on a first-name basis
with each of the volunteers, and
one of them is Anne Bailey, a
part owner of the Times and a
resident of Wesmere in Ocoee.
Bailey has been a Meals on
Wheels volunteer in Winter Gar-
den for 26 years.
"It's part of my life every
Wednesday morning," said
Bailey. "I got so involved, I
couldn't give it up. It's just a
great experience."


She said she is very fond of
this Winter Garden woman,
who recently added a new great-
grandchild to her family.
"She's always very upbeat.
I've never heard her say a com-
plaining word," said Bailey, who
finds all of her elderly clients to
be quite appreciative.
Over the years, Bailey said,
she has become very attached
to many of them and met some
very interesting people.
On one delivery, she realized
she and the client had been
cheering side-by-side when
their sons were Little League
teammates.
Bailey said she picks up her
meals from the Maxey Center
on Klondike Street in Winter
Garden and then spends about
an hour making the deliveries.
Winter Garden resident Ni-
cole Stone is another volunteer
on the Winter Garden Meals on
Wheels route. Her day is Tues-
day.
Stone has been bringing meals
to local seniors for nine years
after reading an announcement
recruiting Meals on Wheels vol-
unteers in the Times.
Her grandmother, Jewell Shel-
ton, suffered from arthritis even
as a teenager. Later in life, she
was confined to a wheelchair
and received Meals on Wheels
for a long time.
Stone remembered how much
her grandmother loved the visits
from the Meals on Wheels vol-
unteers and how they brightened
her day. Her own grandparents
are gone, but through her work
with Meals on Wheels, Stone
has found many grandparents
in the community.
"They're all so sweet," said
Stone. "I love it; it's a good
cause."
She also picks up the meals
at the Maxey Center and said
the delivery usually takes an
hour, or so, depending on how
much time a volunteer wants to
spend.
A Meals on Wheels volunteer
typically delivers a hot, nutri-
tious lunch to 10-15 households
one day each week.
The purpose of the program is
to enable the elderly to remain
independent in their own homes
while ensuring their nutritional
needs are being met. The aver-
age client is living at or below
the poverty level and has little
or no family support. Volunteers


deliver Meals on Wheels Mon-
day through Friday and are often
the only person the seniors see
each day.
There are currently more than
400 Central Florida seniors on
the waiting list for Meals on
Wheels.
Marsha Lorenz, president/
CEO of Seniors First, the lo-
cal Meals on Wheels provider,
said there is always a need for
volunteers, as well as donations
to support this worthwhile ef-
fort for the elderly. Lorenz said
currently there are a number of
open delivery routes.
"Seniors have been hit es-
pecially hard by the economic
downturn, creating an even
greater need for the types of
services we provide," said
Lorenz.
Meals on Wheels, the most
recognizable service of Se-
niors First, delivered more than
242,000 meals to nearly 1,200
clients last year.
Seniors First also offers help
with home repair and mainte-
nance, congregate meals with
transportation, specialized


guardianship services and dura-
ble medical equipment through
Stepping Stone Medical Equip-
ment Bank.
Earlier this year, it joined forc-
es with the Visiting Nurse Asso-
ciation of Central Florida/Com-
munity Care for the Elderly to
better utilize resources and help
more senior citizens continue to
live independently. VNA/CCE
provided older adults with care
management, adult day care,
respite for caregivers, personal
care services, light housekeep-
ing and companionship. These
services are now being offered
by Seniors First.
This month, Seniors First is
taking advantage of a matching
challenge grant from the Alan
Shawn Feinstein Foundation.
It will receive a share of the $1
million challenge equal to the
proportion of the total amount
raised.
To support this project and
increase the match from the
Feinstein Foundation, send a
tax-deductible donation to: Se-
niors First, Inc., Attn: Feinstein
Challenge, 5395 L.B. McLeod


Road, Orlando, FL 32811.
To donate food items, make
a pledge and volunteer or for
questions regarding Meals on
Wheels or other senior services,

2884, Ext. 205, or send an e-mail

Ocoee High principal comments on budget cuts


Editor,

The budget game continues as education
still takes a back seat to an outdated mind-
set by Florida legislators. As predicted in
an earlier My Word column in the Orlando
Sentinel, the sleeping giant did wake up and
the State of Florida Legislature was taken
aback. Educators, parents, students and lo-
cal community members came together to
say enough is enough. Rallies, letter-writ-
ing campaigns, telephone calls, school tube
videos and personal visits made an impact.
The initial strategy to divert our attention
by attempting to play us against each other
and to put local school boards in the line of
fire by having to make no-win choices lost
its steam.
But it isn't over. Now they are trying a
second strategy of "appeasement" to con-
tinue to violate the State Constitution by
inadequately funding education. Both the
Senate and the House are sharing plans that
appear, on the surface, to fund education at
last year's funding levels in the classroom
- the hope being to quiet the giant by
creating the illusion that we are no worse
off than we were. But a closer look shows
that there are significant flaws within both
plans. The total number is not the real total
number, as costs that used to be covered by
other funding sources are now included in
these funding packages, and there are sig-
nificant trade-offs that will not sit well with
parents, students, teachers and community
members. The plans are also based on the
assumption that we will get stimulus dol-
lars. Still, by creating the illusion that they
are "matching" last year's' dollar amount,
the legislature is hoping to have accommo-
dated the now wide-awake giant. Unfortu-
nately for them, it isn't that easy and we are
not that naive anymore. This is not a fix;
this is simply a diversion to take our eye
off of the ball.
The truth of the matter is that our edu-
cation funding system in Florida is badly
broken. In two years the stimulus money,
should we receive it at all, will be gone. We
will be back to a deeper crisis than we faced
a mere few weeks ago. Without a dedicated
funding source for education, our children


will continue to face an unequal playing.
field against students from all over the na-
tion. It is now time for the giant to convince
those that they have voted into office that
there needs to be a real fix for education
funding, not the Band-Aid approach cur-
rently in place. We cannot accept this cur-
rent solution as the only solution. We must
see it for what it is, a strategy to quiet the
screaming giant, with what amounts to still
having the lowest funding in the nation and
yet, appears to be "a lot better than it was"
a few Weeks ago. "A lot better" is nowhere
near good enough; our students deserve our
very best efforts.
It is time to push for a reliable source of
funding, such as the one-penny sales tax,
dedicated to education. It is time to put our
children first in.our thinking, not last in our
nation. Don't be satisfied with tw9-year-
old funding that was near the bottom then,
and don't be fooled by their "generosity"
in funding us at that level there are hid-
den costs to both plans that will hurt our
children.
We must continue to speak for our stu-
dents and we must do so with the same fe-
rocity that was in place when the session
opened. We cannot be appeased by being at
the bottom of the barrel. Make your voices
heard and don't be discouraged by those
who do not see the value of our children.
They are loud, but they are few in number.
Let us continue to band together and do the
right thing, right now. Our very future de-
pends on what we do now. Let us not forget
that the legislature works for us.
My wife loves the scene in the movie My
Big Fat Greek Wedding when the mother
tells her daughter that, yes, the father is the
head of the house, butthat she is the neck.
Our legislators may feel as though they are
the head of our state, but let us not allow
them to forget that we are the neck and we
choose the direction the head of those who
work for us will pursue. Keep up the good
fight, and do not succumb to this latest at-
tempt to quiet the giant.

Atwater addresses Florida health care legislation


The Florida legislature has reached the
final weeks of session, and we are diligent-
ly working to bring Florida's 2009-2010
budget in for a landing. We have continued
our commitment to improve government
efficiency, reduce the cost of services and
eliminate duplication, unneeded bureaucra-
cy and waste. The results are smaller gov-
ernment and savings to Florida taxpayers.
Our cuts in spending have been narrow and
focused to minimize the impact on those
families receiving state services.
As we continue to seek reforms that treat
all Floridians fairly, our approach to fund-
ing Medicaid is a notable example. Florida
currently spends. $1.25 billion in Medicaid
costs per year treating tobacco-related ill-
ness. To help relieve this enormous burden
on the pocketbooks of Florida taxpayers,
the Senate has passed a $1-a-pack cigarette
surcharge that not only offsets the cost of
health care for smokers but also works to
discourage individuals from smoking -


thus reducing smioing-induced healthcare
costs over time.
To further reduce Medicaid costs we have
passed new laws to stop Medicaid fraud.
Our goals are to empower law enforcement
agencies to prosecute false claims, phantom
billing and deceptive billing practices that
unfairly drive up the cost of Medicaid and,
more importantly, robs vital dollars needed
to treat legitimate health care needs among
Florida's most vulnerable citizens.
By improving the delivery of Medicaid
services and shifting some of the cost bur-
den away from non-smoking taxpayers, we
can improve efficiency, restore fairness and
work toward a healthier budget and citi-
zenry.
Passing long-term solutions today helps
to create a better Florida for tomorrow.

Jeff Atwater
President, Florida Senate

Fravel visits schools with Tooth Fairy


Dr. William Fravel's office
and the "Tooth Fairy" visited
several local schools during
February in honor of National
Children's Dental Health Month.
SThe Tooth Fairy visited Founda-
tion Academy, Windermere Pre-
paratory School, Central Florida
Christian Academy and Ocoee
Elementary.
Each school enjoyed a pre-
sentation on brushing, flossing
and caring for their teeth from
the Tooth Fairy. She shared tips
on how to take care for teeth
through good oral hygiene.
The children participated in
activities to learn the various
parts of teeth and activities to


understand what causes cavities
and decay.
They also learned which
foods are healthy and not-so-
healthy for teeth.
The children enjoyed a story
from the Tooth Fairy and took
home goody bags from Dr.
Fravel.
"Reaching children at a young
age, teaching them how to take
care of their teeth and making
them feel comfortable around
the dentist and orthodontist is
an outstanding feeling," Dr.
Fravel said.
Dr. Fravel's office is located
in Ocoee near Health Central
hospital.

that the elected officials ap-
prove spending the money for
the UCF system, especially

been budgeted. He estimated
the cost at $124,000.
On another matter, the
commission approved plans
for a commercial develop-
ment on the northeast cor-
ner of Silver Star Road and
Ridgefield Avenue known as
Silver Ridge Crossing. This
will be a 13,515-square-foot
building on 1.7 acres. The
plans passed 4-1 with Com-
missioner Rusty Johnson vot-
ing against it. Although the
developer will construct a
right-hand turn lane off Sil-
ver Star Road onto Ridgefield
Avenue, Johnson said there
should also,be an additional


sion meeting, Dana Sussan,
,an Orange County forester,
presented the city with a
plaque and a flag as a Tree
City USA.
This is the first year Ocoee
has received this national rec-


ognition.
"As a young person, I
learned early on that we
should take care of our envi-
ronment," said Mayor Scott
Vandergrift. "We have pre-
served and planted thousands


of trees in our community."
The four standards Ocoee
has met to become a Tree City
USA community are having a
tree board or department, a
tree care ordinance, a com-
prehensive community for-

city's costs)'for Alicia Rocna

he was diagnosed
with leukemia and 5

died last August after
his first round of che-
motherapy. The fam-

one event per month
to raise money or
cancer awareness.
At this year's Relay,

Fund-raiser set
at Camp Down
The Down'Syndrome Asso-
ciation of Central Florida will
host a fund-raiser and "Grand
Opening" party on Friday, May
1, at 7:30 p.m. at the Orlando

Down, 3409 Maguire Road,
Windermere.
The event includes live and
silent auctions, live entertain-
ment and dinner and dancing.

door.
"It's a great evening for a
great cause," said Rick Strube,
auction committee member.

porters at this year's event."
Past items up for bid have
included autographed sports
memorabilia, vacations, res-
taurant giftcertificates, theme

bers Kroy Crofoot, Suzie and
John Piovencher, Bryan Crews,

Query and Joy McCoach, has

drome.and their families. With
continued success, Strube said
they expect to pay off the out-
standing mortgage within five
years.
Already hundreds of local
families have taken advan-
tage of the space by attending
playgroups and workshops on

as well as receiving individual
support regarding financial,
educational and legal concerns
facing families with a loved
one with a disability.

Local mother's book on autism

accepted by the governor's library
By Mary Anne Swickerath IB


When Lakes of Windermere
residents Patty and Tony My-
ers received the news from their
doctor that their son, Charlie,
then almost 4, was autistic, they
didn't know what autism was or
what they should do next.
But they committed them-
selves to learning what it was
and what they had to do for their
son, who is now 7 and a main-
streamed first-grader at Sunset
Park Elementary School.
The journey this family
(including daughter Chelsea,
13) took was a deep learning
experience, in ways that were
sometimes surprising and
this journey is documented in
Patty's new book, Autism Is a
Blessing, a book that was just
recently accepted and perma-
nently, placed in the Florida
Governor's Mansion Library,
a fitting decision since April is
Autism Awareness Month and
Special Education Month.
According to Patty, who
serves as ESE (Exceptional Stu-
dent Education) representative
for the Orange County Council
PTA, Orange County Public
Schools has more than 1,300
students with autism and more
than 33,000 ESE students.
"I encourage schools to do
disability awareness programs,"
she said. "It is very important
t6 give our students informa-
tion and bring awareness about
what disabilities are. My hus-
band Tony and I also volun-
teer our time and help families
with their IEP [Individualized
Education Plan] meeting with
schools and educate parents on
IDEA [Individuals with Dis-
abilities Education Act] law."
Patty wrote the book, she
said, as a resource for parents
whose children are diagnosed
with autism to give them in-
formation on how to take those
first steps in providing the best
for their children:
"I tell every feeling I felt,"
she said. "I tell what my family
went through and how helpful
siblings can be."
She also wanted to present a
positive message for families
struggling with autism, so she
asked many of those families
to write down how they dealt
with all aspects of autism from


Patty Myers wrote her book, 'Autism Is a Blessing,' to give
hope to families


the diagnosis to schools to sup-
port and, most importantly, how
autism has been a blessing for'
them. Their heartfelt respons-
es make up a large part of the
book.
For Patty, she said: "My son
has taught me so much about
life. He has taught me what
love really means. He just
lives for now. And I am aware
of how my faith has gotten me
through."


Charliewasn't able to talk at
age 4. Now he not only talks, he
is a regular part of public school
and is high functioning.
He even signed the copy of
Autism Is a Blessing that Pat-
ty gave to The West Orange
Times.
The book is published by
Tate Publishing & Enterprises.

There are just some things I can't figure out.
;And I know as I broach this topic, some will
disagree with the fuzziness of my mind. Others
will probably rail against some of my conclu-
sions or presuppositions.
In our series "Cadence, A New Rhythm of
Life", we discussed the topic of racism, preju-
dice, and discrimination. One of the questions I
asked the congregation was, "Does this discus-
sion apply to sexual orientation?" The answer
for me is yes. Now before you either cheer or
rail, please allow me to give some explanation.
First as a follower of Christ, I never want a per-
son's race, gender, sexual orientation, or mo-
rality to in any way mar my treating someone
in keeping with.the dignity of their creation. I
want my words, my actions, and my attitudes to
communicate that value. And I also never want
to forget my own depravity. I am a sinner who
has been saved by the Grace of God.
Secondly, as a pastor, I don't want to approach
others on the basis of their race, gender, sexual
orientation, or morality. I want people to meet
Jesus Christ and not an agenda, a religion, or a
morality. My primary goal in counseling oth-
ers is to create fertile soil in which the life of
Christ can grow, mature, and produce fruit. The
emphasis on yielding is to Christ's indwelling
Spirit and not to a view, a stance, or a position.
Thirdly, the church is a community where we
journey together in our relationship'with Christ
The dialogue of the community is guided by the
Word of God and His Spirit. In this context we
encourage and challenge each other while at the
same time offering grace and forgiveness. The
primary prerequisite for formally being part of
the community is a life yielded to Christ. All
are welcome to come and explore this journey.
Though membership in the church is open to
all who are yielded to Christ, leadership is e-
stricted. The Word of God provides a general
outline for the responsibilities, qualifications,
and accountabilities of leaders.. Our under-
standing of these leadership markers does ad-
dress issues of sexuality (adultery, homosexual-
ity, marriage, etc.).
As I religious leader, I feel a responsibility to
join in the discussion of the values and moral-
ity that shape our country. I do recognize in
our country, this discussion needs to have seats
open for all to discuss. And though I am pas-
sionate about my perspective, I also recognize
the discussion doesn'talways have to go my
way. In fact, the discussion provides an oppor-
tunity for me to be shaped as well.
Bottom line, I don't have this figured out yet. It
is a journey of discovery. I would love to hear
your perspective.

Dr. Phillips


Congressman Alan Grayson, in back, visited a Bay Meadows 5th-grade class recently to
discuss the importance of saving,

Grayson talks savings with Bay Meadows students


Bay Meadows Elementary
fifth-graders heard from Con-
gressman Alan Grayson and
Janelle Fournette of M&I Mar-
shall & Ilsley Ban, about the
importance of saving money as
part of the American Bankers
Association (ABA) Education
Foundation's Teach Children to
Save program.
"We all understand how
important education is for a
child," said Grayson. "Educa-
tion should teach them what
they need to know in life to be
successful, and part of that is
saving."
This year, in the wake of re-


cent economic developments,
the ABA Education Founda-
tion initiated the Million Child
Challenge and called on bank-
ers to double the 540,000 stu-
dents they taught last year.
"With a new trend in saving,
this is an ideal time to connect
with as many youth as possible
about responsible money prac-
tices," added Fournette.
Teach Children to Save
events involve bankers incor-
porating hands-on scenarios
and real-life experiences into
lessons that explain the basics
of saving, how interest makes
money grow, how.to create a


budget and how to distinguish
needs from wants.
Also new this year, the foun-
dation launched a new Web
site www.teachchildrentosave.
com, as a complement to the
traditional classroom-based

Relay For Life in Metro West

to be held May 1 and 2


SingLiveUSA and Sin-
gLiveUK joined forces to bring
the MetroWest Relay For Life
to Rome on April 26.
SingLive performed at the
Vatican in Rome Sunday. As
part of the group's commit-
ment to make a difference in
the United States, the 300-plus
performers decorated luminaria
dedication bags, and make do-
nations during their stay in the
Vatican City. The donations and
bags will be brought back to the
U.S. by Director John Morris
and presented during their per-
formance at the MetroWest Re-
lay For Life on May 1.
SingLive will also perform
at the opening ceremonies of
the MetroWest Relay, as well
as during the lighting of the
luminaria bags and luminaria
ceremony.
Relay For Life is the Ameri-
can Cancer Society's signature


event coordinated on multiple
dates and in multiple'cities
throughout the world each
year. Last year, in its first year,
the MetroWest Relay For Life
raised more than $22,000. i

through each community relay
remain in the individual com-
munities.
The organizers offer special
thanks to the MetroWest Golf
Club for graciously hosting the
MetroWest Relay and praised
the club for closing for this 18-
hour event, especially given

Marlee Matlin celebrates education at Montverde Academy


The Gift of Swimming holds fund-raiser
The Gift of Swimming held a fund-raiser April 18 at the ChampionsGate Clubhouse to
support swim training for the community's underprivileged children. The event raised
nearly $5,000 for these programs. Pictured are members of The Gift of Swimming Board,
its director and manager (I-r) Susan'Polder, Kathy Baldwin, Dr. Mike Dimauro, Maureen
McGinty, Lisa Green-Sales, Joy McGinty, Kandi, Hernandez, Josseline Garriga and Mark

The Gift of
Swimming
for providing
swim training
for 11 special-

this year.


Montverde Academy's sixth
annual "Celebrating Educa-
tion" event was a huge success.
Nearly 300 people came out to
support the school and to see
special guest Marlee Matlin.
Matlin, assisted by her inter-
preter, spoke about her journey
to Hollywood, mingled with the
crowd, took photographs and
signed copies of her new book,
I'll Scream Later.
She was captured and ban-
ished to Pirates Island as part
of the fund-raiser. Her speech
was both witty and inspirational
as she encouraged the audience
to participate with her and sign
the words "courage," "dreams"
and "success."
Matlin ended the evening
with this comment: "The equa-
tion is simple and should be
taught in all our schools: Cour-
age plus dreams equals success.

Vandalis m (Continued from 1A)


has been knocked out and lies
on the ground, and what's left
standing is covered with graf-
fiti. Another sign at the com-
munity's opposite end also suf-
fered the same fate.
"We can't keep spending
tax dollars on something the
community should be taking
care of," Bouler said. "It's a
waste."
These acts of vandalism,
Bouler said he believes, were
likely perpetrated by residents
outside Bay Point apartments
and took place during late-night
and early-morning hours. Al-
though Garmony said she ex-
pects the fence to be replaced
by June, the same questions
remain how long until the
next one is destroyed and what
can be done to stop the destruc-
tion?
Catching and prosecuting
vandals, City Manager Mi-
chael Bollhoefer said, is not
easy. Winter Garden Police
Chief George Brennan agreed
without eyewitnesses will-
ing to step forward, not much
can be done.
"We [police patrols] just
ctn't be on every street corer
24-7," Brennan said. "People
there know who's doing it, but
they're not talking. The com-
munity has got to say 'enough
is enough' and tell us who's do-
ing this."
City police statistics for Win-
ter Garden's east side show that
cases of vandalism more than

Library programs
S for children
The Winter Garden Library
, has programs for children on
Wednesday. Tiny Tales is pre-
sented at 10:15 a.m. to infants
from birth to 18 months. Tod-
dler Time is at 10:45 a.m. for

doubled from 2006 to '07 but
,dropped in 2008 and is cur-
rently 33 percent lower when
compared to this time period
last year.
"I think we have enough po-
lice patrols," Bouler said. "The
main responsibility, I think, is
on the residents. You don't want
it to look like a police state."
Bouler is trying to catch the
attention of all Winter Garden
residents because he feels this
problem will be most effective-
ly solved through community
involvement.
The East Winter Garden
Community Development
Corp. and an organization
currently being formed called
the Family Preservation Cen-
ter, Bouler said, will work to
clean up the community and
give people confidence that
they can walk the city streets
safely. With workshops, anti-
drug, mentoring and feeding
programs, Bouler said he hopes
to continue helping make resi-
dents of Winter Garden's east
side more self-sufficient.
More beautification projects
are needed, said Bouler, who
proposed rewarding residents
who take care of their property
by establishing a "house of the
month" award program.
"Change has to come from
within this community," he
said. "There's a lot of good
people who live here, and we're
not going to turn a blind eye
anymore."

Meals on Wheels
drivers needed
The Seniors First Meals on
Wheels is in need of volunteer
drivers. The meal routes are
located across Orange County.
There are routes open Monday-
Friday, and each takes about an
hour.
Anyone who can give an hour

WO baseball enters


playoffs on 23-game

, winning streak


West Orange High's baseball
squad wrapped up its regular
season as arguably the state's
best and hottest team, carrying
a 23-game winning streak and
a 24-1 overall record.
The Warriors were set to
open the district tournament on
Tuesday, April 28, vs. Wekiva
and then face either Apopka or
Ocoee on Wednesday.
Last week, West Orange
closed out the regular season
with three victories taking
out Citrus High 7-2, disman-
tling Lake Highland Prep 12-2
and finishing with a 6-1 win
over Bishop Moore.
"The last three games al-
lowed the team to complete
some of its preseason goals:
No. 1, finish the season un-
defeated at home; No. 2, win
the top seed in districts; No.
3, finish undefeated in the


metro," said WOHS Coach
Jesse Marlo.
Mason Williams, Jarett
Ryzewski and Blake Dieter-
ich all picked up pitching wins
last week. Nolan Fontana had
a great week to finish up an
outstanding high school ca-
reer.
Overall, in WOHS's three
wins last week, Fontana
reached safely in all 10 at-
bats, collecting a home run,
two doubles, three singles and
three walks. Fontana finished
the season with a .500 batting
average and a .683 on-base
percentage.
"It's not very often that a
player will reach safely in 10
consecutive at-bats or nearly
70 percent of the time over
the course of a season," Marlo
said, "especially against a 6A
competitive schedule."


DP sweeps district

track championships


Lady Warriors

win district

softball title
West Orange High defeated
host Apopka 7-0 to win the dis-
trict softball title last week. The
Lady Warriors improved to 18-8
on the season and advance to the
regional playoffs.
Pitching ace Taylor Faw-
bush dominated the opposition
throughout the tournament to
deliver'West Orange another in
a long list of softball champion-
ships. In the title game, Fawbush
tossed a complete-game three-
hitter with nine strikeouts while
also going 3-for-4 with three
RBIs from the plate.
Jasmine Butler smacked a
home run and scored two runs,
and Kelly Lopez picked up two
hits and twice crossed home
plate. Danielle Brewer, Val
Proulx, Kelsey Laneave, Missy
Harvey, Molly Billue and Bree
Brasch also pitched in on of-
fense.
"We played like the team we
know we are, and when we do
that we are pretty dang good,"
said WOHS Coach Bobby
Brewer.
West Orange opened the tour-
nament with a splash, defeating
rival Olympia 10-0 as Fawbush
fired a no-hitter with nine strike-
outs. Fawbush, Butler, Proulx,
Brewer and Lopez powered the
offensive attack.
WOHS advanced to the fi-
nals by defeating Edgewater in
a tough, 1-0 contest. Fawbush
again delivered in the clutch,
surrendering only one hit while
striking out 13 batters through
seven innings. Fawbush, who
went 3-for-3 with a bat in her
hands, knocked in Lopez for the
game's only run.

DP girls tennis falls in regional semifinals


The Dr. Phillips High varsity
girls tennis season came to a
close last week as they lost to
Winter Park in the regional
semifinals.
The Lady Panthers struggled
all year to field a consistent
lineup due to injury and with-
drawals yet managed to pro-
duce a regular-season record
of 10-2. The girls were also
runners-up at the district tour-
nament and. went undefeated
on the first day of play.
On Line 1, freshman sen-
sation Costanza Trimarchi
faced Jenna Doerfler a top
10 state-ranked senior, and the
difference in experience and


power was evident almost from
the first ball. Despite losing
6-0, 6-0, Trimarchi was able to
stay competitive in most of the
games. On Line 2, team cap-
tain Kelsey Haddock won the
first game but was forced to
withdraw due to an injury. On
Line 3, Lindsey Woody looked
to be very comfortable early on
but dropped the first set 6-3.
She rallied, though, and won
the next two 6-2, 6-3 to take
the match. On Line 4, Taylor
Stewart played some of the
best tennis she has produced
this year, but it simply wasn't
enough to overcome Jillian
Doerfler, and she went down


6-3, 6-0.
Senior Jacqui Sunga DP's
line champion at the district
tournament captured.the
first set but couldn't hold on
in the next two despite playing
very well. The Line 1 doubles
pair of Trimarchi and Woody
played well but lost 8-2. On
Line 2 doubles, Sunga and
Alyssa Licata fell by the same
score.
"These ladies are all cham-
pions to me," said DP Coach
Simon Conway. "They have
conducted themselves with
passion, dedication and class
all season. I simply could not
be more proud of them."


After a close victor over
Edgewater to win the Metro
Conference title a week ear-
lier, the Dr. Phillips High boys
track and field team knew it
faced a tough challenge at the
district championships, espe-
cially when long jump and
sprinter Dee Hart went down
with an injury in practice ear-
lier in the week.
In a close finish, the Pan-
thers turned in extraordinary
performances to edge out
Edgewater by only 3.5 points
to capture the district crown,
the program's first since
2002.
DP boys captured gold in
five events, including three
by junior Novian Middleton
in the 800m and 1600m and as
part of the 4x800m relay team
with Daniel Millay, Chareif
Lewis and Kyle Cox, while
Alex Mund also captured the
gold in the 3200m.
Perhaps the biggest boost
came early in the meet by.
junior Marvin Ford. Without
Hart, one of the county's top
long jumpers, out of the com-
petition, DP coaches turned to
Ford for the long jump hoping
to secure at least a few needed
points.
They got more than that
when Ford jumped 22 feet,
three-fourth inches to stun
the field and bring home the
gold.
That set the pace for the rest
of the meet, as the Panthers
endured Edgewater's advan-
tage in the sprints but over-
took the Eagles in the distance
events later in the day.
In the 1600m, DP swept
the top four spots (Middle-
ton, Millay, Logan Kruse and
Josh Boggs), and the cham-
pionship was sealed with a
second-place finish in the


4x400m relay by Monticise
Davis, Alex Heyen, Andreis
Norris and Lewis.
In addition to those finishers,
also advancing in their events
to the regional championship
meet, set for this Wednesday,
April 29, at Showalter Field
in Winter Park are Ford (third,
100m), Heyen (third, 400m),
Cox (third, 800m), Millay
(third, 3200m), Andy Lin
(second, high jump), Jared
Watkins (second, pole vault)
and LaQuentin Smith (second,
shot put).
The Lady Panther track and
field team finished the DP
sweep by claiming its second
consecutive district champi-
onship.
Rachel Boggs earned three
gold medals, Erin Chance won
two and Dynasty Jones earned
one.
The meet started off well
for DP with a first-place finish
in the 4x800 relay (Chance,
Katie Cagle, M.K. Vahle,
Boggs) and continued with
Boggs taking gold in both
the 1600m and 800m. Jones
ran a personal-best 56.64 to
take the gold in the 400m and
qualified for regionals in three
other events.
Chance won the gold in the
300m hurdles, while silver
medals were earned by Cagle
in the 3200m and Chance in
the 100m hurdles.
Top-four finishers advanc-
ing to Wednesday's regional
championship included Sheri-
ka Harris (discus), the 4xl00m
relay team (Jatarra Mayhue,
Quintoria Farley, Sharelle
Newkirk, Emily Serra), Serra
(pole vault), 4x400m relay
(Dewaina Grant, Kim Mosher,
Brittany Rockmore, Newk-
irk), Jones (Long Jump, 100m,

Donations helping send
kids to YMCA summer camp


The Roper YMCA Family
Center, along with all local
YMCA branches, are accept-
ing donations to fund summer
camp scholarships. Requests
for scholarships are up as much
as 50 percent at many family
center locations, according to
YMCA representative Maryali-
cia Johnson.
"There's a YMCA camp for
everyone at every price range,
and we provided scholarships of
more than $3.2 million last year
to provide for those families ex-
periencing financial hardships,"
Johnson said. "We depend on
the generosity of donors to help
support our scholarship fund,
and 100 percent of every dollar
raised is used to help them."
Last year, thanks to 5,000
scholarship donors and the
Central Florida YMCA, the


ImBwrn


organization sent 13,000 kids .--
to camp through scholarship
dollars, and this year the need
has doubled.
YMCA day camps provide a
variety of opportunity for kids
to get active through play. This
is especially important, John-
son said, as rates of overweight
and obesity among youth have
increased dramatically over the
past 25 years.
"The need is as strong today
as ever before," said Johnson.
"Being more physically active
through play helps children
better manage stress, succeed -
in school, reduce stress, build
energy and most of all, learn W FK
skills that encourage, a lifetime
of activity. .- -
For more information, call
407-656-6430 or visit www. These children enjoy themselves at the Roper YMCA Fam- the community to help fund its scholarships to its summer
centralfloridaymca.org. ily Center's pool. The YMCA is seeking donations from camp programs.

Daniel Jackson, choral di-

four ensembles from Olympia

competition at this event was
the highest they had ever
faced. The choral competition
consisted of eight high schools
and 14 different ensembles.


All four of Jackson's groups
received a Gold Standard
Award, which means their
overall performance score was
between 90 and 100 points.
The ensembles competed in
four different categories and
received the following awards:
Bella Voce placed first, Wom-
en's Ensemble placed first,
Master Singers placed sec-
ond, and the Titan Men's
Chorus. also placed second.
Overall, Olympia placed three
ensembles in the top five and
all four in the top eight.

only did they receive an Ad-
judicator's Award for having a
score of 95 or higher, they also
received the Overall Outstand-

The Crenshaw School dedicated all of last week to science. Students of all ages par-
ticipated in a variety of science labs, including experiments in chemistry, exploring the
contents of owl pellets, color chromatography, cellular makeup and dissections of pigs,
frogs and worms. Students worked alongside Crenshaw high school students for many
of the biology labs, exposing the youngsters to real-life anatomy lessons at a much ear-
lier age. The grand finale to the week was a schoolwide egg-drop competition. All stu-
dents were given the same supplies to design and build a contraption that would protect
a raw egg from breaking when dropped from a height of 15 feet.

In Luke 18: part of verse 29 and all of verse
30: "Verily I say into you, there is no man that
hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife,
or children, for the kingdom of God's sake,
who shall not receive manyfold more in this
present time, and in the world to come life
everlasting."
These words were spoken by Jesus Christ,
when he was on earth.
I looked up the word everlasting and this is
what I found, in part "lasting or enduring
forever; eternal. Continuing long or indefi-
nitely." This was found in my dictionary. In
one of the above verses, the words "and in the
world to come" was used. What do you think
about those words, and in the world to come?
Do you believe that another world lies
ahead?
According to the Bible, God tells us what
we are, how we were made, how we went

astray and what we should do to be ready for
that world to come. The only one I know that
has a world to come is God. When death comes
to me, I can't stop it. Neither can I give myself
everlasting life. I believe in the world to come.
God has a vast creation that lies beyond this
earth. If you lived eighteen billion years and
travelled at the speed of light, there would still
be stars and planets that lie ahead, in space.
I believe the best is yet to come. Someday
we can sit down in the kingdom with Abraham,
Isaac and Jacob and beyond this life we can
spend eternity with the king of kings and the
lord of lords.
Revelation 19:16, "And he hath on his ves-
ture and on his thigh a name written king of
kings and lord of lords. The best is yet to come

There is excitement at West
Orange High these days as
three performing arts pro-

join forces to bring Disney's
. Beauty and the Beast to life
on the WOHS stage May 12-
17.
This is a first for the school.
Drama Director Ken Rush
has cast an ensemble of 77
students, and they are busily
spending their rehearsal times
working on blocking, charac-
ter development and choreog-
raphy while Choir Director
Kema Owens has been prepar-
ing the cast vocally for a true
Broadway sound. Around the
corner from these rehearsals,
Band Director Ken Boyd is
tuning a full orchestra.
The show will incorporate
the largest set ever designed
for a West Orange stage, com-
plete with a two-story castle
and more than 200 profession-
ally designed and created cos-.
tumes on loan from the largest
professional costume compa-
ny in the United States.
Cast members will also
'have the opportunity to learn
makeup tips from a profes-
sional makeup artist who has
worked on movies, including
Pirates of the Caribbean. The
artist is being brought in to
handle the special makeup for
the characters of the Beast,
Lumiere and Cogsworth.
Playing the innocent but
spunky Belle are two talent-
ed girls, Claire Wilkinson and
Astrid Gonzalez. Wilkinson,
a senior, performs nights,

nees.
"It's amazing to be Belle.
I love acting and am excited
to end my school year with
Beauty and the Beast, said
Wilkinson.,
"Portraying Belle is like a
dream come true," said Gon-
zalez. "She's my favorite
Disney princess, and I about


cried when I found out I had
the part."
Joining the cast as Beast is
West Orange alumni Benjamin
Rush, who is currently attend-
ing North Carolina School of
the Arts. While at WOHS,
Rush performed in numerous
shows,-including The Music
Man, Man of La Mancha and
The Diviners.
Lumiere, the flirtatious but
loveable candlestick, is played
by Cole Abell; and his faithful
friend, Cogsworth, is being
played by Davoune Barber.
"I'm nervous about doing
the show," said Barber, "but
very excited for the learning
experience."
Joining them is Lindsey
Mixon as Mrs. Potts, Salva-
tore Vieira as Chip, Jacob

Westbrooke Elementary families have jammed local businesses all year long on various
Spirit Nights with lines that stretch out the door. From Pizzeria Uno to Quizno's to Chick-
fil-A, Westbrooke families know how to pack a restaurant. One such restaurant owner
said, 'Our employees never worked so hard. They told me today that they were so crazy
busy they do not even remember leaving last night that is a good thing.' Spirit Nights
have also included performances by Westbrooke musical groups. As a new school,
Westbrooke is very proud to have more than 80 Partners in Education. PIE chair Penny
Baum said, 'We do not create one-way partnerships; we create a win-win relationship so
that both the school and the partner benefit.'
