Orlando Magic community gym coming to Winter Garden


By Michael Laval
Winter Garden's east side will be
home to one of five community gym-
nasiums to be built in the metro area
by the Orlando Magic.
The $6 million gym was originally
slated for development at Dr. P. Phil-
lips Park, but after nearby residents
protested against the project, Winter
Garden officials began working with
Scott Boyd, Orange County District 1


commissioner, to bring the park to the
Mildred Dixon Community Center.
* Building the five area Magic gyms
are part of the basketball franchise's
agreement with Orange County for
funding on its new venue to be con-
structed in downtown Orlando. Many
Dr. Phillips residents expressed to
county leaders that they did not want
or need the facility and were concerned
about increased traffic congestion that
the gym could bring to their neighbor-


hood.
City Manager Michael Bollhoefer,
City Commissioner Harold Bouler
(District 3) and Director of Parks and
Recreation Jay Conn attended the
April 28 meeting of the Orange Coun-
ty Board of County Commissioners to
appeal for the site to be moved to Win-
ter Garden: The city delegation, how-
ever, didn't even need to address the
county board as Boyd spearheaded the
proposal, calling it a win-win situation


Growing the future amidst the past


By Amy Quesinberry

On ground level, downtown Winter Garden rel-
ishes its look of the past with its shops and restau-
rants housed in buildings dating back to the 1920s.
But four stories above Plant Street, the future in
garden growing is taking root. -
Agriculture
playedamajor
role in Winter
Garden from
the very be-
ginning with
thousands of
acres of citrus
groves, plus
the straw-
berry fields
and cabbage
patches north
of. downtown
and the lettuce
fields to the
west. 'Many
other fruits
and vegeta-
bles were har-
vested too. Horticulturist Tim Blank displays
And now cally grown lettuce of the aquad
agriculture of the Roper Garden Building in
seems to have
come full circle with produce growing, once again,
in downtown Winter Garden but this time it's be-
ing cultivated using cutting-edge technology.
In a rooftop greenhouse owned by citrus mag-
nate Bert Roper, conveyor "belts, big metal trays
and towering cylindrical tubes shift, spin, slide and
circulate.
This might look more like a scientist's labora-
tory than a greenhouse, but the Ropers have spared.
no expense in this aquadynamic-farming, project,


which is not only a commercially productive green-
house but also an educational showcase. The Rop-
ers call it "agri-tourism" and plan to give tours of
the research and demonstration greenhouse each
Saturday at 11 a.m. for a $10 fee. They are eager to
have area chefs check out the technology and pro-
duce.

are stacked in the 3,000 square feet of greenhouse
space.
The fish in the tanks create ammonia and other
minerals that are converted back into nitrate form,

New park commemorates fallen deputy
Family members of the late Grady Braddock joined Winter Garden Mayor John Rees and com-
missioners Bob Buchanan, Harold Bouler and Colin Sharman in celebrating last Saturday's grand
opening of the city park named for the Orange County Sheriff's deputy who died in a car crash
in 1998 at Winter Garden-Vineland Road and Lake Butler Boulevard, right next to the new park.


Thornebrooke's young athletes
debut Special Olympics program


Seven Thomebrooke El-
ementary first-graders felt
special last Thursday when
they received medals and cer-
tificates at the Young Athlete
Jamboree, a field-day event
that was the culmination of
Special Olympics Florida's
Young Athletes program.
During an 11-week train-
ing period, the students, who
all have autism, progressed
through more than 20 work-
outs in which they practiced
24 skill-building exercises,
including balance, jumping,
kicking, running races, throw-
ing and catching. Last Thurs-
day, they showed off their new
skills at the Ocoee school while
family and friends cheered on.
"This was the culminating
day foq our Young Athlete
program," said Monty Caste-


for both the county and Winter Garden.
The County Commission approved the
move by a unanimous vote.
Boyd said he felt Winter Garden's
east side would be better served by the
gym, as the area is predominantly low-
er income, and it would help expand
services to the West Orange commu-
nity.
"This is going to be a huge asset for

The Colony Plaza Hotel no longer shows
any signs of its glory days.

Hotel to provide

final wake-up call

Saturday morning
By Mary Anne Swickerath
The iconic pink towers are coming down.
The Colony Plaza Hotel at the comer of
West Colonial Drive and Maguire Road will
be imploded this Saturday, May 9, at 7:10
a.m., according to Ocoee city officials.
Built in 1968 at a cost of less than $2 mil-
lion, the hotel, then known as the Ramada
Inn, was one of the first tourist resorts in
West Orange County, serving as the choice
of early Disney visitors beginning in the
1970s. A little-known fact is that this hotel
(40 years ago this week) served as the site
of a huge press conference hosted by Disney
officials for the worldwide press to preview
the upcoming opening of Disney World.
The media representatives were bused from
the hotel to the construction site of the new
theme park that opened in 1971. ,
But times changed, and the hotel went
through a slow decline.
The city, which was involved with years
of legal work concerning the hotel, even-
tually condemned the building for code-
enforcement violations. On March 3, the
City Commission approved spending nearly
$700,000 to have it taken down.
In charge of the deconstruction are South-
ern Building Services Inc. of Winter Garden
and subcontractors Central Environmental
Services Inc. and Dykon. The gutting of
the towers began March 12, and this Sat-
urday specially placed dynamite will be
set off, causing the tower walls to fall into

"The most important as-

with early interaction. It's a
non-competitive atmosphere
in which we reward them for
performing skills."

Salvador. "Many have fought
their own cancer battles, both
as survivors and as caregivers,
and several have experienced
loss first-hand. They all under-
stand the impact we can make
as a community when we come
together in this fight."
One of them is Tammy Win-
don, who is serving a second
year as the team development
chair. She said she got involved
last year because her mother is
a two-time breast cancer survi-
vor.
"I understand first-hand what
it means to be a high-risk cancer
patient," Windon said. "I want to
find a cure for cancer so that my
daughter never has to deal with

Letters to the editor


School Board member asks for correction


More than 35 million Americans are
hungry, food insecure or at risk of be-
ing hungry. One in four people in a
soup kitchen line is a child. I
This weekend we all have a chance
to feed our hungry neighbors by help-
ing local letter carriers with their Stamp
Out Hunger campaign.
This might seem like a small effort,
but it is the nation's largest, single-
day food drive. Last year, the Central
Florida letter carriers collected almost
372,000 pounds of food and more than
909 million pounds of food was col-
lected across the country.
The local food donations are deliv-
ered to Second Harvest Food Bank of
Central Florida, which, then distributes
the products to community food banks,
pantries and shelters such as the Daily
Bread in Ocoee.
The 2009 Stamp Out Hunger col-
lection will take place this Saturday,
May 9. Postal patrons are encouraged


to leave a sturdy bag containing non-
perishable foods, such as canned soup,
canned vegetables, pasta, rice or cereal,
next to their mailbox prior to the time
of regular mail delivery on Saturday.
Food items should be in non-breakable
containers, such as boxes and cans.
The local letter carriers will collect the
donations and deliver them to Second.
Harvest.
"Millions and millions of families are
suffering struggling to make ends
meet and. put food on the table," said
William H. Young, president of the Na-
tional Association of Letter Carriers.
"More than ever, food banks, pantries
and shelters need our help this year. As
families count on them for support,
they're counting on us and we must not
back off on our commitment."
This is a simple way to show we care
about our hungry neighbors. With your
help, we can stamp out hunger one can
at a time.


Editor:
In your April 9, 2009, edition of your news-
paper, you report on the front page that Or-
ange County School Board has voted to close
six elementary schools, including Maxey El-
ementary School.
Please be advised that Orange County
School Board has not voted to close any
schools at this time as we are in the process
of evaluating our options; and we would ap-


preciate you reporting that accordingly.
This is very important because we want to
continue to receive public input as we evalu-
ate our options.
Hopefully, federal and state legislatures will
see fit to properly fund our schools so we can
avoid some of these very tough decisions.

Christine Moore,
Orange County School Board member


(Editor's note: Christine Moore is correct about there being no formal vote yet to
close the six elementary schools, and our story should have made it clear that the School
Board gave direction to Superintendent Ron Blocker to move ahead with policies and
procedures that must be followed should a final decision have to be made to close these
schools, including beginning the rule-making process for rezoning children and receiv-
ing public input into the closure issue. According to Orange County Public Schools
spokesperson Katherine Marsh, the final vote on the school closures will be held May
26, after public meetings are held. We appreciate oUr School Board member from Dis-
trict 7 bringing this matter to our attention.)

By Amy Quesinberry
He's shy at first, but after 2-and-a-half-year-
old Johnathan Molina warms up to you, his
charming smile and the look from his deep-
chocolate eyes stay with you long after he and
his mother have left the room.
I received a visit from Johnathan a few
weeks ago. His mother, Marie Molina, had to
carry him into The West Orange Times office
because he can't walk. Bom roughly 14 weeks
early and weighing just three pounds, Johna-
than developed periventricular leukomalacia, a
condition caused by hemorrhaging in his brain.
Several days after giving birth, Marie had to
leave the hospital without her baby; he would
remain in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for
two months.
Johnathan also was diagnosed with a num-
ber of other medical problems hangingg from
spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, profound
developmental delay and seizure ,disorder to
asthma, broncho-
pulmonary dys-
phasia and reflux.
He can't stand
or walk. He .can't
sit by himself. He
can't crawl, but he
can roll over with a
great deal of effort.
His mother says he
understands what
is being said to
him and he tries to
communicate with
others. Right now
he says mama,
Miguel (his older
brother's name)
and a few other
words and phrases
that only the fam-
ily can decipher..
Despite his limitations, though, he is an up-
beat little guy, responding to everyone with a
joyful smile. He's also constantly showering
"mama" with kisses.
Johnathan loves Mondays. That's the day he
goes to the local United Cerebral Palsy center
for four hours of physical, occupational and
speech therapy. When he's at UCP his favorite
activity is tooling around in a walker, but Mom
says he's happy riding the bicycle or playing
with the different sports balls too.
Marie doesn't sleep much at night because
she has to turn her son over every couple of
hours. She works an early-morning shift at
Disney Properties so she can be home in the
afternoon to take Johnathan to his various ap-
pointments and therapies. Her husband, Ran-
gel, works early too so he can take care of the
household duties such as cleaning and cooking.
Marie's mother, Mireya Gautier, takes care
of Johnathan when both parents are at work.
Johnathan currently undergoes a hyperbaric
oxygen treatment at Central Florida Hyperbaric


in Winter Park. He spends one hour each week-
day lying in a hyperbaric chamber where he
can watch TV and breathing in 100 percent
oxygen with 17.5 feet of underwater pressure.
Mom says it helps him "wake up," or revive,
the damaged cells in his brain. As a result, he
is talking more and purposely moving his right
arm instead of keeping it tucked against his
body.
To pay for the 40 treatments, which are $135
apiece, Marie has used her entire income tax
refund several years in a row.
The family's insurance will not cover all of
the Molinas' expenses, "so I guess I just have
to keep doing what I'm doing," Mom said.
"As a mother, the worst thing that I could
imagine was to think that my child would be
limited in his life," Marie wrote in a letter doc-
umenting her son's journey. "I struggle day by
day thinking about finding a cure or at least a
treatment that would help to improve Johna-
than's quality of life."
The family did
some research and
found a program
at Innovative Chil-
dren's Therapy, also
in Winter Park. It
involves a suit that
was originally de-
signed to counteract
the harmful effects
of weightlessness
on the body af-
ter spape travel.
Through. therapy, it
can retrain the cen-
tral nervous system
and improve bal-
ance, coordination,
strength and muscle
tone.
It sounds like a
fantastic opportunity for Johnathan, but there's
a catch. For the little boy to benefit from this
three-week program, his parents have to come
up with $6,600. And the Molinas just don't
have the means to do that. So they're turning to
the community for help. Anyone who wishes
to make a monetary donation that will help the
Molinas and little Johnathan can send a check
to Innovative Children's Therapy, 5423 Lake
Howell Road, Winter Park 32792 (with a nota-
tion that it's for Johnathan Molina).
"As a mother, you never give up in trying
to do whatever it takes to see your son doing
better." Marie said last week. "I know he'll be
able to do it if I keep pushing him."
This program could activate Johnathan's
muscles enough so he can gain strength in his
trunk and be able to sit on his own.
Does Marie think her son will one day walk?
"I have the hope, yes."

ney. Donations for Johnathan's treatment can
also be made at SunTrust bank.

Lettuce starts at the back of the floating raft system and makes its way to the front of the
greenhouse as it grows.


Garden
Roper said, and that is the
fertilizer used for the lettuces
that are grown on the channel
system, which is angled above
the fish. As the lettuce heads
grow, their "channel" shifts to
the right in a matter of days.
Further south, two rolling
beds are in place for seedlings
to grow with the help of .a
flood-and-withdrawal system.
At the far end of the green-
house is a floating raft system,
a hydroponic option for grow-
ing lettuce.
In the greenhouse's northern.
end, a vertical vine system is
.producing tomatoes, eggplant
and cucumbers.
Nearby, hanging pots full of
flowers and herbs are circling
along a conveyor belt. Water
sprayed on the plants is col-
lected in a tray to be recycled
and reused.
Towers 15 pots high with
60 plants in each are fed
and nourished from the top,
and the water-is recirculated.
"They're rotated to give
them optimum sunlight on all
four sides of the pot," Roper
said.
"We hope to use no more
than 15 percent of the water
used in traditional agriculture,".
he added. "Water conservation
is one of the major thrusts of
this endeavor. I think water is
going to be a significant prob-
lem..., and we're trying to be
ahead of that:"
Roper said, "Our goal it to
try to do that with rainwater -
nothing out of the ground."
A 22,000-gallon cistern sits
underneath the building for
this purpose.
Much-smaller versions
of the tower gardens are for
sale. They are electric but use
very little energy to circulate
the water. Earth and mineral
products are used to fertilize
the plants without the use of
chemicals.
How did this whole idea
of rooftop gardening come
about? It's a combination of
Roper's lifelong agricultural
ingenuity and the fact that
his neighbors on Lake Butler
weren't so keen on looking at
greenhouses on his residen-
tial property, where he first
planned his garden project.
"The Orange County zoning
board turned down an applica-
tion to build a greenhouse at
my house on. Lake Butler,"
Roper explained. "I said, 'If
I can't stick it there, I'll stick
it on a rooftop in downtown
Winter Garden;'"
And so he did.
But the greenhouse is hard-
ly conventional in that it has a
triple-system retractable roof.'
The top portion opens and
closes to protect the gardens


Hanging pots circle the greenhouse in order to get sunlight on all sides.

during rain. There is also a
fixed bird-and-butterfly net-
ting and then a shade that will
be used in the summer to re-
duce the harsh sunlight'by 50
percent.
"The idea is that the plants
are meant to grow outside,"
said Roper, "and when weath-
er permits, we open it up and
they're outside."
Roper comes from a long
line .of- citrus grove owners.
Local sources credit William
Roper, a citrus pioneer who
came to Winter Garden in
1857, with establishing the
first groves grown from seed-
lings in West Orange County.
Bert Roper has battled
many devastating freezes -
the worst in 1983, '85 and '89
- but he has always managed
to keep the business afloat and
the orange trees producing.
Roper's partner is Tim
Blank, president and CEO
of Future Growing LLC in
Plymouth, which he calls a
controlled-environment ag-
riculture and urban food pro-
duction company.
He serves as chief horticul-
turist and greenhouse manager
at Green Sky Gardens.
"It's awesome to be able
,to partner with the Ropers
because they're so passion-
ate about everything" ag-
riculture, the Garden Theatre,
the city of Winter Garden...,"
Blank said during a recent tour


of the greenhouse.
"Bert and I..*.we have the
same vision: being able to
feed people healthy food and
help them reduce their carbon
footprint," he. said. "My hot
button is sustainable urban
food."
According to Blank, "What's
up here [in the greenhouse]
is the culmination of smart
people coming together." This
includes the best technology
from Europe and Israel.
Green Sky Growers is con-
sidered the first facility of its
kind in the world, Blank said,
because although his compa-
ny has worked on multi-acre
greenhouse operations, no one
has ever put an aquadynamic
greenhouse on a roof.
Blank has enough creden-
tials and experience to sup-
port his statements. He has a
degree in greenhouse manage-
ment and horticulture, and he
worked in hydroponics at The
Land at Disney's Epcot for 12
years.
His company, Future Grow-
ing, came up with the "inno-
vative, cutting-edge technol-
ogy and adapted it to an urban
facility like Green Sky Grow-
ers," he said. The technology
was created so farming can be
done year-round, and it is in
use in cold climates in Europe,
Canada and the northern U.S.,
as well as in warmer climates
like Florida.


Tanks await the water and the fish in the northern greenhouse. There are also tall towers
for growing flowers and herbs.


With this system, plants are
protected from harsh weather
conditions and the water and
nutrients are recirculated, un-
like conventional farming, he
said.
Roper and Blank see two
purposes to Green Sky Grow-
ers: For use as a teaching facil-
ity for farmers, entrepreneurs
and university professors and
to deliver Urban food produc-
tion in a sustainable way.
His favorite part of the
greenhouse is the tower gar-
den because it "is a solution
for the homeowner.
"People want to be empow-
ered to do this at home, but
most people can't afford to
build a greenhouse at home.
"We specifically created the
tower garden, made of food-
grade FDA-approved plastic,
so people can take a piece of
what the cutting-edge farmers
are doing and do it right out-
side their back door," Blank
said. "They can grow their
own clean, safe, healthy, pes-
ticide-free food and grow it
several times faster than they
would in the soil."
The Ropers have long lived
by the philosophy of making,
the community better, and
they see this greenhouse proj-
ect as a continuation of that.
Looking to the future, Rop-
er and Blank also envision
hydroponic gardens all along
Plant Street, where the build-
ings are ideal with their flat
roofs.
"We could be growing
locally and teaching chil-
dren to grow locally," Blank
said. "Lucky 'for us there's
a demand for locally grown
food."
In fact, if you order a salad
at the Sweet Traditions or the
Chef's Table restaurants, both
in downtown Winter Garden,
you are eating lettuce grown
just around the corner and
four stories above.


Tim Blank shows off a smaller version of the tower garden,
which can be purchased at Green Sky Growers in Winter
Garden.

W.O. Jazzercise instructor celebrates 20 Years


Jazzercise instructor Cathie
Fowler, who teaches at the
Orlando Flames Cheerleading
facility in Gotha, is celebrat-
ing her 20th anniversary this
month.
Remarkably, Fowler has
been able to teach the same
schedule her entire career,
with classes held on Monday,
Wednesday and Friday at 9:30
a.m. In these times when com-
panies come and go, consisten-
cy has served Fowler well.
"It's great being in the same
area 'for a long time students
sometimes have to leave, but
they know I'm always there,
and they come back when they
can," Fowler said.
She began teaching in 1989
at the 'new' gymnasium built
by the First Baptist Church and
has been at the Orlando Flames


Cheerleading facility since
2001. The Gotha facility has
undergone several improve-


ments over the years. Ready,
Set Dance, with classes for
all ages, is also located there,
as well as Traditional Martial
Arts.
Jazzercise is a worldwide-
fitness program and is cel-
ebrating its 40th anniversary
this year. There are more than
180 classes offered in Central
Florida, and in West Orange
County Jazzercise students
have more than 20 classes a
week to choose from. There
are a combined 57 years of in-
structor experience in this area
alone. Patty Keener, long-time
Winter Garden/Ocoee instruc-
tor, celebrated her 20th anni-
versary last year.
Fowler invites anyone to
come and try a class, and stu-
dents who have attended in the
past are encouraged to come


Mayor Crotty declares May 9 Henry Nehrling Day
At the Board of County Commissioners meeting on April 28, Mayor Richard T. Crotty and
the Orange County commissioners read a proclamation declaring May 9 to be Henry
Nehrling Day in Orange County. Accepting the proclamation were (in front, I-r) Henry
Nehrling Society Recording Secretary Jennifer Roper, President Theresa Schretzmann-
Myers and Past President Angela Withers. They thanked District 1 Commissioner Scott
Boyd for his support in proposing the proclamation and presented the mayor with a copy
of the Society's award-winning DVD 'Saving Dreamland: Henry Nehrling's Florida.' May
9, 1853, was the birthday of Dr. Nehrling, the pioneering horticulturist, ornithologist and
writer who established Palm Cottage Gardens in Gotha to experiment with tropical,
subtropical and native plants. More information about the society and its efforts to save


the Nenrling site.can be found at nenrlinggardens.org.

DP baseball upsets Olympia


The Panther baseball team
stunned rival Olympia High,
one of the area's best, by
knocking the Titans out of the
district playoffs with a 4-2
defeat in last week's quarter-
finals.
Dr. Phillips junior Ben Over-
man belted a grand slam in the
third inning, and Josh Strong's
pitching performance cooled
Olympia's hot bats. Leading
off the third, Jose Martinez


reached on an error and moved
to second on a sacrifice bunt by
J.P. Galagarza. On the next at-
bat, Mark Nelson (3-for-3, run
scored) followed with a single,
and Matt Byerly walked to
load the bases. Overman then
stepped in and blasted a home
run just inside the left field foul
pole to give DP a 4-0 lead.
Strong went six and one-
third innings, allowing six hits
and one earned run while strik-


ing out six.
In the Olympia seventh, the
Titans connected for consecu-
tive doubles and put two run-
ners on base to cut the deficit
in half, but DP's Sean Shanks
took the mound in relief and
struck out the final batter to
seal the victory.
Dr. Phillips finished its sea-
son with a 15-5 loss to East
Ridge in the district semifi-
nals.

es. The group then donated the books to the classes.
Above, Robert Stuart Jr. from the Gray Robinson law firm

I'm not that smart and so I do approach the fol-
lowing topic with sdme caution. I often sit in
the presence of colleagues and marvel at their
intellect (or the lack of mine). Don't misunder-
stand me. I'm not just feigning modesty. I'm
pretty adept at application and have distin-
guished myself in leadership and understand-
ing motivation. I'n 'far more a practitioner
than a thinker. And that's kind of a funny state-
ment since my weekly article is entitled "Just
Thinking". Nonetheless, let me share with you
an observation and some thoughts.
I've watched the Church go through a variety
of phases. As I entered ministry 20 years ago,
it appeared the Church was reacting and.mov-
ing out of legalism. You know what I'm speak-
ing of Christianity defined by the observance
of rules and standards. When the pendulum
began to swing back, though the message of
grace became part of the reaction, legalism
was replaced by practicality. God needed to
make sense. He was practical. We should
heed His instructions because they would lead
to fulfilled lives, healthier families, and greater
accomplishments. Christianity became about
the betterment of our lives.
This self-preoccupied Christianity, rejected by
the younger generation, is being challenged by
a renewed emphasis upon social justice. Real
Christianity seeks to serve and relieve the suf-
fering of the marginalized, disenfranchised,
and the forgotten. Christianity is defined by
His followers serving a hurting world. Though
I am a great fan of this renewed fervor, it does
take on a greater flavor of humanism that we
can change our world merely through practical
service. Other than motivation, God can get
lost in the crowd of causes.
As Jesus observed the "church crowd" of His
day, He said they were like "sheep without a
shepherd" (Matthew 9:36). As we consider
the previously described trends, I believe some
need to be completely replaced, and others
need an appropriate context, because the key
is always relationship with Christ. I know it's
not exactly new or fresh. I'm just not sure it's
lived or experienced!
Life needs to become more about a journey
with Christ than some prescribed destinations.
Behavior needs to become more an expression
of love in our relationship with God than meet-
ing the standards of others. Service needs to
become a supernatural empowered expression
of God's compassion, and not just some tugs
on our hearts.
For when I allow my Christianity to become
a relationship with Christ, I not only bring a
truth perspective, a new purpose for life, and a
hope of the future, I also bring the supernatural
presence of Christ to my journey. Let me know
what you think!

in Race-for-Education. Children in K-4 through high school ran up to 47 laps each. The
money raised was donated to the school's Scholarship Fund.
Ocoee


The Ocoee Elementary strings teacher, Ms. Weed, and her 4th-grade students hold class
in the front lobby of the school. The strings students were temporarily displaced from
their classroom due to rainy weather, and the only space large enough for them was the
school lobby. Everyone showed patience and flexibility, and Principal Sheilla Johnson
enjoyed hearing the sounds of their musical instruction drift into her office.

OHS brick fund-raiser
needs support
It's not too late to be a part
of the inaugural brick-laying
project at Ocoee High School.
The OHS PTSA is getting ready
to install the first set of bricks
from this fund-raiser in which
the PTSA is selling personalized
bricks for $100 apiece.
The goal is to sell 3,500 bricks
to build a larger home bleacher
section for the school. This
sounds impossible until you re-
alize that there are 34,000 peo-
ple living in Ocoee alone, not
including all the other areas that
Ocoee High pulls from.
"We are looking for alumni
from the old Ocoee High School
to come on board, current stu-
dents and recent graduates and
hope that they will all partici-
pate," said Principal Mike Arm-
bruster. "Currently we have
literally thousands of people
standing to watch our games.
When the funds are raised, we
will be able to build adequate
seating for everyone."
For more details, visit www.
ocps.net/lc/west/hoc/Pages/de-
fault.aspx and click on the brick
on the home page. The deadline
to be in this group is this Sun-
day, May 10.

A spring brunch
features ham
biscuits and
strawberry cake
By Mary Anne Swickerath
A brunch is a great choice for'
entertaining in the spring (and
the good thing is you don't have
to worry about guests keeping
you up past your bedtime).
Brunch can work for a gradu-
ation party, bridal shower and
Mother's Day celebration, and,
as chance would have it, Mar-
tha White baking expert Linda
Carman sent some suggested
brunch recipes to my e-mail
address last week that look in-
viting:
The brunch menu selections
are Sour Cream Biscuits with
Country Ham, Italian Cheese
and Spinach Cornbread Strata
and Strawberry Crumb Cake. I
am printing the first and third of

The newly reimagined Por-
tobello restaurant (formerly
the Portobello Yacht Club) in
Downtown Disney has not only
a charming new look (inspired
by rustic Italian trattorias) but
also a carefully chosen new
menu, one developed by Chef
Tony Mantuano of Chicago's
well-known Spiaggia, John
Radcliff of Levy Restaurants
and Steven Richard, executive
chef of Portobello.
Richard is sharing the res-
taurant's Rigatoni Calabrese
for West Orange County home
cooks to try.

1 pound rigatoni pasta
1 pound Italian sausage
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cups chicken stock
cup kalamata olives
2 cups escarole
1 cup chopped tomato
4 ounces butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook pasta in at least one
gallon of salted water until
just underdone. Prepare sauce
