Police converge

By Michael Laval
Many local residents were
shocked last week to learn of
police raiding a downtown
Winter Garden restaurant. On
Tuesday, May 5, multiple law-
enforcement agencies con-
verged on Hot Dog City on
Plant Street and Diana's Sec-
retarial Services, located off.
Story Road and Main Street,
and rounded up suspected
members of the Westside gang,
accused of trafficking millions
of dollars of cocaine and mari-
juana and committing acts of
violence throughout Central
Florida.
Through a joint investiga-
tion involving several federal,
state and local agencies, au-
thorities determined that the
gang had been using the two
Winter Garden businesses to
launder money generated from
drug sales. The- May 5 raids
saw the seizure of more than
125 pounds of cocaine and

Citizens will have
a chance to voice
their opinion in the
2010 local election.
By Mary Anne Swickerath
If things go as planned,
Ocoee voters will have the
chance to vote on proposed
changes to the city's charter in
the local election set for March
2010. The Ocoee City Com-
mission approved the report
from the Charter Commission
last week and directed staff to
bring back an ordinance out-
lining the charter ,changes to
be put on the ballot.
The proposed changes in-
clude lengthening the terms
of office for the mayor and
commissioners from three- to
four-year terms in office so
as to piggyback on the county
elections and allowing the
winner with the most votes to
be elected instead of requir-
ing a majority vote. The first
change would save money by
not having to have a separate
local election, and the second
would eliminate runoff elec-
tions.
An addition change would
require the appointment of
three residents to the city's
Canvassing Board that certi-
fies elections. Currently, the
board includes the mayor and


two commissioners not run-
ning for office.
The changes, if approved
by the voters won't go into ef-
fect until 2012 because no city
election will be held in 2011
because it is an off-year with
no election.
"We talked about proposing
seven districts with the com-
missioners choosing a mayor
from among themselves rath-
er than having a mayor run
citywide or six districts with
the mayor running citywide,"
explained Jean Grafton, who
served as the Charter Review
Commission chairman. "We
decided against this change
because we felt it was prema-
ture."
The elected officials asked
the Charter Review Commis-
sion to revisit the issue of ex-
panding the City Commission
and bring its findings back at a
later time.
In other business, the elect-
ed officials:
approved a pre-annexation
agreement for the proposed
East Crown High Tech In-
dustry planned-unit develop-
ment located on three parcels
totaling 45.85 acres located
between East Crown Point
Road and the Western Belt-
way north of Palm Drive. The
commission also approved
changes to the Joint-Planning
Area boundary and the Future
Land-Use Map to plan for the

Winter Garden to reward residents

for participating in city survey


Volunteers for
the survey should
sign up as soon
as possible.
By Michael Laval
Winter Garden is one of the
only cities in Florida to main-
tain its same level of services
without raising fees or tax
rates, City Manager Michael
Bollhoefer boasts, and now
the city wants to hear from
residents on how it can con-
tinue to best serve the public.
Decreased revenues result-
ing from state-mandated prop-
erty tax cuts, coupled with
the nation's economic crisis,
have forced most municipali-
ties to cut back or impose fees
on iaany services. Winter


Garden, on the other hand,
is bucking the trend thanks
largely to a new management
philosophy within City Hall
that Bollhoefer describes as
"citizens-based performance
management."
The citizens-based element
of the philosophy refers to
a series of resident surveys
and focus groups the city will
commission in May and June.
The purpose will be to de-
termine the public's level of
satisfaction with city services
and what changes or improve-
ments are most desired. Once
completed, Bollhoefer said, he
plans on sharing the survey re-
sults with the elected officials
and working at City Commis-
sion meetings to develop a
strategic business plan listing
goals andj objectives for each


department.
Winter Garden is now re-
cruiting citizens to volunteer
for the surveys to be con-
ducted by an outside firm.
.Independent focus group fa-
cilitators will randomly select
participants from the pool of
volunteers. Those chosen for
the 90-minute sessions will
receive refreshments and be
rewarded with $50.
The survey dates and times
per voting district are: District
1, May 29, 5:30-7 p.m.; Dis-
trict 2, May 30, 9-10:30 a.m.;
District 3, June 20, 5:30-7
p.m.; and District 4, June 19,
9-10:30 a.m.
Those interested in volun-,
teering should call 877-467-
2462 as soon as possible as
the limited number of slots are
expected to fill up quickly.

Winter Garden, Oakland, Tildenville and Beulah.


W.G. Heritage's new

architecture book

recalls old Sunday

afternoon drives


The Winter Garden Heri-
tage Foundation announces
the publication of a new local
history book, Sundays in the
South: Touring West Orange
County. The 112-page touring
guide features 70 buildings
and homes of architectural
and historic significance in the
communities of Winter Gar-
den, Tildenville and Oakland.
Sites include sketches by local
artist Rod Reeves and historic
narrative describing the build-
ings and the people who turned
these houses into homes.
The release will be celebrat-
ed at a book-signing event this
Sunday, May 17, from 5-6:30
p.m. at the Oakland Park In-
formation Center, 15241 E.
Oakland Ave., Winter Gar-
den. Copies of the book will
be available for -purchase at
$19.95 plus tax. Members of
Winter Garden Heritage Foun-
dation will receive $5 off the

hand to autograph purchased
copies.
A special coach tour of se-
lected sites taken from the
pages of the book will also be
available that day for $25. The
insiders' tour will feature tales
of days gone by from "old-
timers" Larry Grimes, Jerry
Chicone, Rod Reeves, Jack
Ross and Phil Cross. Choose
one of two available times4-5


p.m. or 6:30-7:30 p.m. Seating
is limited, and reservations for
the coach tour are required.
Call the WGHF at 407-656-
3244 for more information or
to make a reservation.
The book's illustrations
were selected from the vast
collection of more than 160
sketchbooks filled by artist
Reeves. For Reeves, there was
never a doubt about his life's
passion. Even to this day, he
carries a sketchbook every-
where he goes.
"All my life I've liked ar-
chitecture... and loved my
hometown's folk, who lived,
worked, worshipped and rec-
reated in these structures. The
buildings are, to me, more
than lumber, brick and mor-
tar. They are the repositories
of memories of these lives. I
hope that people can use these
sketches as a reference when
refurbishing some of the older
homes and buildings, while
also creating an awareness of
the value of this area's archi-
tectural history."
In addition to the book re-
lease, the foundation is spon-
soring an exhibition of Reeves'
framed sketches in the lobby
of the Edgewater Hotel at 99
W. Plant St., Winter Garden.
The exhibition celebrates his

and everyone had snacks and
soft drinks.
The auditorium was trans-
formed into a '70s disco with
'good eats and a "rocking" disc
~ jQckey that kept the nurses
dancing all night. The nurses
found their way to the "pizza
parlor" during lunch to rock
and roll to 60's music aqd re-
call the great fun and turmoil
of that decade.
With the next day being
Mother's Day, the nurses
joined the residents in the Park
Cafe for tea and relaxed to the
music of the '50s.Remember
when music was music? The
residents sure did and could


teach the nurses a thing or
two about the '40s. This day
overlapped the celebration
of National Nursing Home
Week,. and it fit right in with
the theme of "Nurturing a love
that lasts."
For six days, nurses kept
going back, back, back, and
for the final day it was back to
the present, where they were
given gifts of appreciation
as they "jammed" to today's
music.
. Anyone who doubts that
any work gets done with all
that fun happening can stop by
Health Central Park any day
and see the staff in action.

The $1.6-million Pioneer

Cleaning up a sinkhole
Sinkhole de Mayo is the name of the project completed
by volunteers and board members at the Oakland Nature
Preserve recently. An old sinkhole on the preserve has be-.
come overgrown with non-native plants, so Jim Thomas,
ONP president, and the group decided to clean it up. En-
couraging the maintenance and expansion of native plants
on the preserve is a primary goal, and often non-native
plants try to take over. Planting native species and eradi-
cating non-natives is a continuing effort. The board of the
Oakland Nature Preserve invites the public to see the facil-
ity and become a member and volunteer. The ONP is open
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and admission is free.

Christian movie being filmed at First Baptist W.G.


From the award-winning pro-

the Giants and Fireproof comes
the next Christian family film,
Letters to God, scheduled to
start shooting in and around
downtown Winter Garden and
Orlando on May 21.
Pastor Tim Grosshans of the
First Baptist Church of Winter
Garden and a few of the film's
producers and directors an-
nounced on Sunday that the
church will be "ground zero"
for the new film. Director Da-
vid Nixon said his team has
two other Christian movies in
the pipeline this year as well.
Nixon asked the congregation
to pray for the film and- ev-
eryone working hard to bring
another Christian story to the
big screen.

The suspects have been
charged with criminal gang vio-

in cocaine, trafficking in canna-
bis, conspiracy to traffic cocaine,
witness intimidation and money
laundering and are also being
held on $1 million bonds.
"We're talking life-sentence

the suspects' possible fates, if
convicted.

"Christian film-making is
moving to new heights be-
cause of the connections God
has made and the viewers that
go out and see these movies,"
said Nixon.
Letters to God is a story of
hope and community brought
together by a young boy named
Tyler. The film is based on the
true story of the boy's strug-
gle with cancer and how his
strength is exuded to the friends
and family around him. Tyler
writes letters to God as his way
of praying. His letters ask God
to help all the people around
him who have been affected by
his circumstance.
The mail carrier finds these
letters addressed, to God and
enlists the help of the com-
munity who rally around to

Kay Cappleman, education co-
ordinator from the Winter Garden
Heritage Foundation, has worked
together with Reeves over the past
two years compiling the selected
significant structures and script-
ing the historic narrative that de-
scribes each site. Every Tuesday
afternoon, Cappleman met with
Reeves and a group of "old-tim-
ers" who add stories of the people
behind the sites.
"We had so much fun and
shared such wonderful stories
that we didn't want to stop when
the book was complete," Capple-
man said. "Instead, we've de-
cided we'll keep writing books
together."
The publication of the book

Evidence gathered from the in-
vestigation, according to FDLE,
indicates that Perez has been
financially supporting jailed
Westside members and their
families in exchange for silence
about the gang's criminal activi-
ties. The gang has also allegedly
intimidated witnesses to prevent
courtroom testimony against ac-
cused Westside members. *
Authorities first took note of
the Westside gang in 1997. Since
then, FDLE has documented
about 80 gang members and as-


sociates, many of whom have
extensive criminal rap sheets
highlighted by violent and drug-
related crimes. One known mem-
ber, Javier Trevino, according to
FDLE, is a fugitive wanted for
killing a Central Florida woman
in 2006.
The arrested Westside suspects
are all being held at the Orange
and Lake county jails, and their
cases will be tried by the Office
of Statewide Prosecution. In the
meantime, state and local law-
enforcement agencies will con-
tinue working together to take
down the region's most danger-
ous gangs.
"We're going to continue tar-

are trying to grow membership

sure to acquire confidence, courage and a
new look in life how he redefined commit-

banish. fear and worry; how he brought out
the best in yourself; how he showed you
how to face life with enthusiasm and con-
fidence.
Directed by faith and led by the love of
his family, he found his calling. That call-
ing was to honorably wear a five-point star
on his chest.
A number of years ago, we saw a dire
need to hire a full-time grounds keeper at
the OCSO Range. Grady was one of a number
of applicants for the job. Quite frankly, he
was the least-qualified applicant who applied
for this position.
Although Grady was the least qualified in
experience, he was the most qualified in hav-
'ing a dream. and a vision. I was immensely
impressed from the very beginning. A good
portion of the interview dealt with how much
he loved his faith, wife and family.
I remember struggling in making the final
decision between Grady and another indi-
vidual. Quite honestly, I picked up the phone
to call the other candidate. However, at the
last second, I changed my mind and made the
call which started it all. I called Grady and
gave him a conditional offer. He asked for an
opportunity, one which I never regretted.
Soon after he began his job, the landscape

ference and began to notice just who was
behind this positive change, not only on the
way the facility looked, but the man who
brought life and joy each and every day and
to everyone he met.
About eight months into this job, Grady
asked if I would support his desire to attend
the Law Enforcement Academy part time in
order to become a certified law-enforcement
officer. I told him that I would on one con-
dition.
"What's that, sir?"
"That you promise me that you never work

With that signature grin of his, he respond-
ed "I'll give you my word, and I will give
you my all."
You see, Grady
gave his all from the
very beginning till
the very end. He had
a heart of giving.

You see, Grady touched so many people
and made such a positive impact to this com-

In my 32 years I spent with local and

Editor,
For more than 75 years, the month of May
has been designated as Better Hearing and
Speech Month. This month provides an op-
portunity to educate and inform others about
the importance of good hearing and the social
and emotional implications of hearing loss,
which is one of the most commonly non-ad-
dressed health conditions in America today.
Have you noticed the increase in the num-
ber and size of ads for hearing aids in the
newspapers? These businesses have read the
reports and seen the statistics that one out of
10 Americans has a hearing loss. That's more
than 31 million people, and the number is
growing. Three out of 1,000 children are born
with hearing loss. Fifteen percent of "baby
boomers" age 45 to 64 have hearing loss.
Twenty-hine percent of people over 65 have
hearing loss, but the majority of people with.
hearing loss are below retirement age.
Hearing loss ranks with arthritis, high
blood pressure and heart disease as one of the
most common physical conditions. The num-
ber is growing with the cumulative effects of
amplified music, sound systems at home and
in theaters and the growing use of personal
listening devices that can blow your hearing
away.
Hearing loss can and does impair speech
and learning ability and affects social behav-
ior. Studies have shown that hearing loss has
a more devastating effect on a person's physi-
ological well being than the loss of any one
of the other senses. The hearing impaired live
within the hearing community, so when peo-
ple lose their hearing, they are forced to make
adjustments to their lives which not only af-
fect their self-esteem and physical health but
also their relationships with spouses, children,
close friends and co-workers who are also ex-
periencing life-altering situations themselves
in dealing with a hearing-impaired person.
The first state of hearing loss is often de-
nial. Many people find it difficult to accept,
and there are no visual signs it's an invisible
disability. They think it's the other people's
fault for not speaking up. Unfortunately, it's
not unusual for someone to wait five to seven

An inquiry into the whipping of 7-year-old
Elmer Peavy, a pupil in Winter Garden Ele-
mentary School, by Mrs. Edward, a teacher,
has been undertaken by the county school
board in Orlando. The inquiry follows a pro-
test by the boy's father, S.T. Peavy.
Forty high school seniors will be graduated
21 at Lakeview and 19 at Ocoee. Lakev-
iew's honor graduates are Louise Bekemeyer
Bland, valedictorian, and Dan McKinnon, sa-
lutatorian. Elizabeth Tomyn is valedictorian at
Ocoee, and Jairus Osgood is salutatorian.

Josephine Maguire of Ocoee, valedicto-
rian of the Lakeview High School graduat-
ing class, has been given the Seventh Annual

community. She will receive an honorary sub-
scription to The Readers Digest for one year.
The Rotary Club entertained the members of
the Lakeview senior class at its regular meet-

dent Harry Smith introduced Mrs. J.S. Kirton,

trator of West Orange Memorial Hospital. He

years to seek help. Because of this, often the
person will become withdrawn and less will-
ing to attend family or social get-togethers.
Family members, friends and co-workers be-
come impatient and tend to back away from
talking or socializing because "it's just not
worth the effort." This can have an adverse
effect on relationships, especially husband
and wife, because the closer the relationship,
the greater the effect.
What can be done to help people with hear-
ing loss recognize that they own the problem
and also help those associated with them to
understand the kinds of problems related to
the loss? What is out there to help the hearing
impaired through this journey?
There are national organizations such as
Hearing Loss Association of America that
has state and local chapters where people can
share what works for them. There are state or-
ganizations, also, such as Deaf Service Cen-
ters and Centers for Independent Living.
What devices are there to help? What is the
newest technology available to help cope?
And what if hearing aids aren't enough?
There are bionic ears cochlearr implants),
which give hope when nothing else will help.
There is the newborn screening that can de-
tect hearing difficulties and open the door for
children as young as 12 months to be fitted
with cochlear implants. Children with hear-
ing loss who are identified and receive early
intervention prior to 6 months of age develop
significantly better language ability than chil-
dren identified after 6 months.
"Even a very slight hearing loss can have
an impact on your daily life," said Dr. Jerry
Punch of the Department of Communicative
Sciences & Disorders at Michigan State Uni-
versity. "Hearing loss is treatable, and there is
no reason for anyone to miss all the important
sounds of life."
Why am I sharing this information even
though it seems to fall on deaf ears? It's be-
cause I have been on the journey of facing
and meeting the challenges of living with
hearing loss for the past 46 years.

Health Central
physician named
director of
Ocoee clinic
Dr. Muqeet Siddiqui was re-
cently named director of Taz-
kiah Shepherd's Hope Health
Center in Ocoee.
Shepherd's Hope Health
Centers are a series of clinics
offering healthcare for unin-
sured, low-income individuals
in Central Florida. Siddiqui
volunteers his expertise twice
a month at the Shepard's Hope
Clinic while splitting his day as
an attending physician at Health
Central and his own family
medicine practice. This year,
Siddiqui celebrated a 20-year
career milestone at Health Cen-
tral and has been recognized for
having the highest number of
private-practice patient refer-
rals to Health Central.
The idea of an affordable clin-
ic first struck Siddiqui, he said,
when a memorable patient with
acute pneumonia entered his of-
fice. This patient previously re-
fused to seek medical attention
because he did not have health
insurance. His condition, Sid-
diqui recalled, had been left
untreated for so long that the
patient unfortunately lost his
life. Had he sought treatment
earlier, Siddiqui said, he would
be alive today.
As this story spread through
the community, fund-raising ef-


DR. MUQEEET SIDDIQUI

forts in conjunction with Shep-
erd's Hope helped establish the
Ocoee location.
Siddiqui was appointed clinic
director as a result of facilitat-
ing the partnership with Health
Central to provide free mammo-
grams and lab work for Shepa-
rd's Hope Clinic referrals.
"Health Central is the back-
bone of our community," Sid-
diqui said. "The city of Ocoee
is grateful for Health Central's
services. I am proud to be a
part of two outstanding Cen-
tral Florida healthcare organi-
zations."

The Hyatt Regency Grand
Cypress held its 18th Annual
Camp Hyatt Career Day on
April 28. The resort welcomed
20 fifth-graders selected from
Meadow Woods Elementary

roles and responsibilities asso-
ciated with careers in the travel
and tourism industry.
Outfitted in their own Hyatt
uniforms, students job-shad-
owed employees in various
positions throughout the hotel,
such as housekeeping, engineer-
ing, reception, reservations, pas-
try chefs and valet. The students
went behind the scenes at the
newly restyled Grand Cypress,
which recently underwent a $65

Assistance with rent and utility
payments, expansion of medical
services to the uninsured, a new
safety system for a performing
arts group and refurbished dormi-
tories for the homeless represent
a few of the programs that will
benefit from more than $530,000
in grants and pledges awarded in
April to local nonprofit organiza-
tions by the Dr. Phillips Charities
(The Dr. P. Phillips Foundation
and Dr. Phillips Inc.).
The Heart of Florida United
Way was awarded $98,100 to be
used to establish an emergency
temporary basic-needs fund in
which every dollar will go di-
rectly to someone in the com-
munity. United Way is matching
Dr. Phillips' grant by providing
all administrative costs.
"At a time when there aren't
enough resources in the comrmtu-
nity and our system is overbur-
dened, this will allow us to help
people with their basic needs like
paying their utilities and rent,"
said Robert Brown, president
and chief executive officer of
Heart of Florida United Way.
"It's a strong sign to the commu-
nity when an organization like
Dr. Phillips steps up to provide
much-needed funding, and just
by doing that they've challenged
others to do the same. Backing
from Dr. Phillips is a great stamp
of approval for our new emer-
gency campaign to help families
in need."
Dr. Phillips Charities have
designated significant amounts
to the Heart of Florida United
Way in the past, resulting in the
creation of the United Way's
2-1-1 program, an information
and referral service for the com-
munity.
Dr. Phillips Charities have also
provided for an enhanced phone
system enabling 2-1-1 staff to re-
spond from multiple locations in
a disaster, which has streamlined
the process of matching people
in need with agencies that can
help them.
The latest grant will be used
to provide emergency funds
through the United Way and
several direct service agen-
cies. These dollars will be used

Foundation produces

award-winning essay writers


Several Foundation Acad-
emy students have earned
some prestigious awards from
the Orange County Bar Asso-
ciation.
Three high school and one
middle school student attended
the association's annual lun-
cheon recently to accept their
awards. Foundation Academy's
high school and middle school
English departments had par-
ticipated in the Bar Associa-
tion's annual essay contest with
the theme this year being "A
Legacy of Liberty: Abraham
Lincoln, the Great American
Lawyer-President."
Out of hundreds of partici-
pants, Foundation Academy's
students came home with a
"grand slam." Rebekah Higgs,
10th grade, received the first-
place ribbon, ninth-grader Lau-
ren Rucker received second
place, and third place went to
10th-grader Meredith Leifer-
man. In the Middle School di-
vision, eighth-grader Josephine
Liwang took third place.


Attending the luncheon were
many honorable court judges;
several local law firms were
also represented. Business
representatives from various
organizations associated with
the judicial system were in
attendance, as well as the stu-
dents, teachers, administrators
and parents from the participat-
ing schools. The essay selec-
tion panel represented a wide
scope of judges from the Or-
ange County judicial system.
Foundation has a strong
English program that begins
in the Lower School with the
elementary grades. Some of the
strong points in FA's English
program are the use of Shurley
English in first through seventh
grades.
"Shurley English is an awe-
some concept that teaches the
principles of grammar and
parts of speech along with us-
age and mechanics by engag-
ing students with lively jingles
and hands on techniques," said
high school English teacher


Christy Higgs. "It also helps to
strengthen their writing skills
while developing a solid under-
standing of the writing process.
The secondary school's English
curriculum fosters and chal-
lenges a deeper comprehensive
level and continues to promote
a strong foundation in all types
of writing."
Another new addition to FA's
English curriculum is "Think-
ing Maps.'Thinking Maps are
used schoolwide across the
curriculums in grades K-12.
Thinking Maps are hands-on
tools for learning that enhance
the concept and process of
teaching students critical-
thinking skills. They pave a
pathway helping students be-
come articulate writers through
all disciplines.
"Foundation Academy is
constantly striving to excel in
all areas to achieve academic
excellence and to offer a pre-
eminent Christian education in
the Central Florida area," said
Shawn Minks, headmaster.

Bridgewater Middle SWAC wins state nutrition award
Bridgewater Middle School's Student Wellness Advisory Council (SWAC) won the Flori-
da State School Nutrition Award. The award goes to the SWAC that influenced its school
the most by giving feedback to the food service program, attending the district food show,
learning about nutrition and influencing the school staff, community and students to get
involved in wellness and good nutrition habits. Pictured (1-r) are: Fran Hickman, FSNA
president; Karen Rich, BMS food service manager; and students Sarah Shearburn, Phar-
rah Millan, Nimord Jeffords and Darsani Sookdeo.

Two local teachers receive Star Teacher Award


At the Orange County Bar Association Luncheon: (1-r), Foundation Academy English
teachers Jennifer Bennett and Alice Colon, students Josephine Liwang and Meredith
Leiferman, Headmaster Shawn Minks, students Bekah Higgs and Lauren Rucker and
English teacher Christy Higgs.


Six teachers in four Orange
County Public Schools were
recognized by Bright House
Networks with. Star Teacher
Awards for their use of cable
in the classroom to enhance the
way students learn.
Two of the six are local
teachers: Deborah Wasylik of
Dr. Phillips High and Seth Re-
ichelson of Ocoee High.
Thanks to students in Wasy-
lik's class, the campus of Dr.
Phillips High and local neigh-
borhoods are a lot cleaner to-
day. They created Eco-Teams
after watching cable programs
like Disney Channel's Dirty
Jobs.
The goal of these teams was
to create a greener school cam-
pus and cleaner city streets. At
the conclusion of the project
called "Talking Trash at Dr.
Phillips High School," students
volunteered regularly outside
of class.
Through a project called
"The Art of Computer Sci-
ence," Reichelson used cable
programs like Ovation TV's


American Revolutionaries: Art-
ists and PBS's Art in the 21st
Century to introduce students
to work by Monet, Picasso and
Van Gogh.
In turn, students used their
new knowledge of art to im-
prove their coding skills and
created a program to "paint" a
replica of famous works of art.
The end result was an original
Java program that is capable of
replicating famous works of art
by randomly placing millions
of polygons until a good match
is found.


Also receiving Star Teacher
Awards were Jessica Ayres,
Bruchetta Jones and Everett
Jones, all of Union Park Middle
School, and Elizabeth Abrams
of Meadow Woods Elementary
School.
The six teachers are among
twb dozen to receive an all-
expenses-paid trip to Birming-
ham, Ala., for the annual Star
Teacher Awards Gala in June.
All the winners will also share
a $10,000 cash prize, and each
will receive a Tiffany crystal
star.

Giving back brings new meaning to family's loss


A new
foundation will
honor Whitney Lee
DeCarlo by helping
neighbors in need.

By Kathy Aber

The death of a child is sad
and-tragic. Most parents have
wondered and worried how they
could cope with such a devastat-
ing event.
Dr. Phillips residents Dennis
and Stacey DeCarlo are still
healing from the death of their
23-year-old daughter, Whitney
Lee DeCarlo, on Oct. 6.
In an interview with The West
Orange Times last week, Stacey
told how Whitney lived life to
the fullest and had a soft place
in her heart for those who were
different, less fortunate or hurt-
ing in one way or another.
"In 23 years, she did more
than some people do in a life-
time," said Stacey.
To honor their daughter's
memory and embrace her great
passion for life, the DeCarlos
established the Whitney Lee
DeCarlo Foundation, a 501 (c)3
charitable organization.
The DeCarlos have learned
that keeping busy and giv-
ing back to others when you're
grieving is a great help.


The foundation's first fund-
raising event will take place
Saturday, May 23, in the Holy
Family Parish Life Center.
The Passion with Purpose
Dinner Gala will feature former
Notre Dame football Coach Lou
Holtz as the guest speaker.
Holtz, a longtime family
friend, is a three-time winner
of National Coach of the Year
honors. He is also the author
of two bestsellers, The Fight-
ing Spirit and Winning Every
Day, and produced four highly
acclaimed motivational videos:
Do Right, Do Right II, Do Right
20 Years Later and If Enough
People Care.


At the gala, Holtz will share
his winning strategies for a life
filled with purpose.
Proceeds from the gala will be
distributed through the founda-
tion to St. Vincent de Paul Fam-
ily Outreach, the Edgewood
Children's Ranch and scholar-
ship assistance programs in the
local community.
Tickets for the gala are $95
each, and table sponsorships
with seating for eight, admission
to a private cocktail party with
Holtz and event recognition are
$1,000.
The festivities will get under
way with a VIP sponsor recep-
tion from 6-7 p.m. Dinner, the


presentation by Holtz and a
raffle will take place from 7-10
p.m. Black Tie to Barbecue will
cater the meal.
To reserve tickets, call 321-
689-9658.
Stacey said Whitney would be
happy about the gala.
. "Whitney was all about big
parties and getting dressed up.
She would be smiling from ear


to ear. She was always smiling,"
said Stacey.
"Through the foundation,
Whitney will touch many more
lives."
For more information on the
DeCarlos day-to-day journey
following Whitney's automobile
accident, log onto www.caring-
bridge.org and type in Whitney
DeCarlo.


The DeCarlos have lived
in the Dr. Phillips area for 18
years and have a son and another
daughter, who are both in col-
lege. All three of their children
attended Holy Family Catho-
lic School, and both daughters
graduated from Bishop Moore
High School. Dennis DeCarlo
is a partner in a Orlando-based
business.

save his comrades during vicious
combat after a roadside bomb
demolished their Humvee.
The tournament attracted 100
golfers, who enjoyed the Win-
dermere Country Club course,
plus continental breakfast and
lunch and a silent auction. They
also were amazed by golf trick
shots performed by artist Buddy
Shelton. Prizes for on-course
contests included a $15,000
cash prize for a hole-in-one, a
Bose speaker system, and a $500
Visa gift card. Prizes were also
awarded for longest drive and
straightest drives.
Following lunch, noted local
auctioneer Armand Carpentier
pumped up the bidding on a
number of live auction items.
J.R. Martinez, better known to
fans of the ABC-television soap
opera All My Children as Brot
Monroe and himself a wounded
Iraq veteran, was there to lend
his continued support of the
fund-raising efforts for wounded
war veterans.
Windermere CC member
Joe Gustafson chaired the 2009
event, assisted by Teresa Barr,
vice-chair, and members of the
board of directors for the Win-
dermere Country Club Foun-
dation, Nancy Boos, Marc

ing Co. and PCL Construction

ida. The foundation manage-
ment is all done by volunteers,

in partnership with the founda-

Local LAX girls named All-Americans


[m


Dr. Phillips resident Tom Kelley was inducted last month
into the University of Florida's Athletic Hall of Fame.


Kelley inducted into UF

Athletic Hall of Fame


Longtime West Orange
County resident Tom Kelley
Sr. was one of three former
University of Florida football
lettermen recently inducted
into the UF "F-Club" Athletic
Hall'of Fame.
Kelley and former All-
American receivers Ike Hill-
iard and Reidel Anthony were
inducted along with four other
former male and female ath-
letes at a black-tie banquet
held in Gainesville at the
stadium on the evening prior
. to the Gators' spring football
game.
A Gator.recruit from Bir-
mingham, Ala., Kelley earned
his reputation primarily as a
linebacker and defensive end
while playing both offense
and defense during Coach Ray
Graves' first three years at


Florida from 1960-62, which
was the latter part of college
football's limited substitution
rules era. The Gators compiled
a 9-2 record in 1960 with up-
sets over Georgia Tech and
LSU and a Gator Bowl vic-
tory over Baylor, and in 1962,
Kelley enjoyed participating
in the Gators' upset victory
over Penn State in the 1962
Gator Bowl.
While a three-year football
'letterman and student-athlete,
Kelley earned bachelors and
masters degrees in civil en-
gineering and environmental
engineering.
During his senior year, Kel-
ley married his wife, Carol,
with whom he lives in Dr.
Phillips and has three grown
children and eight grandchil-
dren.

Winter Garden fencers win

5 medals in Gainesville


Winter Garden fencers
marched triumphantly home
after winning five medals at
the Gateway Foil Circuit held
in Gainesville.
Winter Garden Fencing
Academy Coach Jennifer
Rawlings renewed her nation-
al rating with a bronze medal
in ihe open event, while her
student Matthew Breen won
the gold in both the open and
youth-14 events. Devyn Gro-
ver placed third in the Y-14,
and his younger brother, Bren-


den, earned silver in the Y-10
event.
The academy sent 10 of its
competitors to Gainesville, in-
cluding Lee Doan and Douglas
Rintoul, who have participated
in only three tournaments be-
tween themselves. WGFA cur-
rently has more than 60 regis-
tered fencers, 20 of whom are
USFA competitors.
"We take our training se-
riously," said Coach Jason
Seachrist. "We do not simply
throw our students onto the


strip after a few lessons."
One of the highlights of the
day Was a bout between Coach
Rawlings and a southpaw from
Jacksonville, Will Cook. In
one exchange, the two fencers
were toe-to-toe, with 36-inch-
long weapons, each attempt-
ing to score a valid touch. The
referee finally halted the ac-
tion with the bout ending 3-0
in Rawlings' favor.

School Board honors All-State Band, Orchestra students


The Orange County School
Board recognized students se-
lected for the All-State Band and
Orchestra at a special recogni-
tion meeting on April 30.
Board Member Christine
Moore, District 7, hosted the
recognition, inviting 48 middle
and high school students who
were chosen for their outstand-
ing skill on their respective in-
struments.
To be selected for All-State
Band and Orchestra, students
are required to prepare scales
and two pieces of music and
sight read music they have never


seen before. They play a blind
audition, which is recorded onto
a CD and selected by a commit-
tee.
Moore, who is a music educa-
tor, has performed throughout
Central Florida as a flutist. She
cited reports that middle and
high school students who par-
ticipate in instrumental music
performances score significantly
higher than their non-based peers
in standardized tests. Above all,
she said, she wanted to recog-
nize the students' commitment
to success and the "day-in and
day-out discipline it takes to ex-


cel at music."
With help from Hannah
Jennings, director of bands at
Legacy Middle and the district
chair of the Florida Bandmasters
Association, Moore recognized
16 middle and high school stu-
dents.
Among the local students
honored were: Allyson Smith
(Ocoee Middle), Marissa
Kotzin (DPHS), Miranda Ros-
sum (Chain of Lakes), Johnny
Suomu (DPHS), Stephen Sense-
man (DPHS), Douglas Stevens
(Lakeview) and Stephen Picher
(Olympia).


Ocoee High


Seniors who have been in the top 25 of their class each year since Ocoee High opened
are: Jessica Ross, Don Ho, Francesca Antoine, Elliot King, Charmaine George, Brian
Lagrange, James Taylor, Aaron Fan, Robert Eisinger, Daniel Jackson and Kristen Smith.


Pictured at the School Board's special recognition meeting are (1-r): in front, Hannah
Jennings, Xintong Tian, Allyson Smith, Audra Moore, Nicole Rodriguez, Marissa Kotzin,
Miguel Goncalves, Moriah Prior, Leanna Aikin, School Board Member Christine Moore; in

Egg hunt for
top students
With the end of the third
marking period came the 4th
Annual Top 100 Egg Hunt at
Ocoee High.
The top 25 students by cu-
mulative weighted GPA in
each grade level were invited
to the courtyard in the morning
where more than 1,300 plas-
tic eggs containing candy and
tickets were hidden. The best
and brightest of OHS scram-
ble to collect as many eggs
as they could jumping over
brick walls, crawling in bushes
and climbing trees:
After the courtyard was
picked clean, the students
moved into the cafeteria
where they were treated to a
breakfast of ham and egg and
cheese croissant sandwiches.
There were multiple prizes


available, including DVDs,
themed baskets and an iPod.
The festivities were funded by
OHS Leadership students op-
erating lunch carts during the
school year.

OHS presents 'Joseph'
The Ocoee High Theatre De-
partment will present "Joseph
and the Amazing Technicolor
Dreamcoat" at 7 p.m. on May
7-9 and also a 2 p.m. show on
May 9 at the OHS Perform-
ing Arts Center. The musical,
which is a colorful retelling of
the biblical story, spotlights
Joseph's uncanny abilities
through different genres of
music and dance.
Michael Levins plays the
role of Joseph and Principal
Mike Armbruster makes his
OHS stage debut in the role


of Pharaoh. Tickets are $5 for
students and $10 for adults.

Top 10 honored
Ocoee High School recently
recognized the top ten aca-
demic students in the Class of
2009 at a breakfast celebration
with parents and students.
Valedictorian Robert Eising-
er and salutatorian Aaron Fan
received personal journals as
keep-sakes. All ten students
will be recognized at the Se-
nior Awards night where they
will each receive recognition
and awards for their accom-
plishments. These students
are headed to Johns Hopkins
University, the Air Force Acad-
emy, the University of Chi-
cago, Georgia Tech, Florida
and other institutions of higher
learning.


Jesus sent his twelve harvesthands out with
this charge: "Don't begin by traveling to
some far-off place to convert unbelievers.
And don't try to be dramatic by tackling
some public enemy. Go to the lost, confused
people right here in the neighborhood. Tell
them that the kingdom is here. Bring health
to the sick. Raise the dead. Touch the un-
touchables. Kick out the demons. You have
been treated generously, so live generously.
(Matthew 10:5-8, The Message)
I realized something as I reflected upon this
passage. The ministry I've done in Uganda,
Haiti, Costa Rica, China, and Japan is in
some ways easier than what I do in West
Orange County. Sure, traveling some place
else involves greater expense and the chal-
lenges of overcoming language and cultural
barriers. But in those places, nobody really
knows me. They don't know my prejudic-
es, my sin, and my character flaws? And be-
cause I'don't really know them, they really
don't brush up against the ugliness of my
life. Their context of knowledge consists
merely of my 10 days of service. It's pretty
safe, and from my perspective, enjoyable.
That's not exactly the case when it comes to
you and me. We're neighbors. My words
and actions have a greater context in which
to be judged. And trust me, after 18 years of
community engagement, no doubt I've sent
some mixed messages.
Beyond my continual need for repentance
and confession, I do believe such ministry
tension creates the opportunity for what
Christians call discipleship. Jesus in this
passage is encouraging His disciples to
take their next step, to leave the feet of their
master and begin to dip their own feet into
the waters of service and ministry. And
doing so in their own neighborhood didn't
just allow God to doing something through.
them, but also in them.
For I believe, serving where we live is an
additive for personal growth. The service
is not just defined by what we do, but also
by who we are. And it is in the realization
of this tension that growth often occurs. I
know my ministry is filled with such ten-
sion and growth possibilities.
Let me know what you think.

A team of 18 students from
Windy Ridge School will be
competing at the National Sci-

Augusta State University in
Augusta, Ga., on May 16.
The shortest distance be-
tween two points is usually a
straight line, but not for these
kids. At first, Windy Ridge
fielded 34 students, divided
into two teams. Students par-

on campus on May 20 at 9:30 a.m. This year the school had 57 mentors working weekly
with 519 students. With the incoming freshman class expected to exceed 1,000, at least
100 mentors will be needed to continue the program in the fall. Anyone interested in
becoming a mentor should e-mail mmclaughlin@fxgrouponline.com.


-Windy Ridge-
Ridge Team B51 Beta had
finished first in the state by a
one-point margin. After further
review, a judge's. error was
found, and Windy Ridge was
told the team had actually fin-
ished second. Normally only
the top team in the state pro-
gresses to the national compe-
tition, so the school's Science
Olympiad 2008-09 season
seemed to be over.
But recently there was ,pn-
other unexpected announce-
ment. For unknown reasons,
the state of Oklahoma has
chosen to decline its nation-
al competition invitation, so
Windy Ridge was offered the
chance to take its place.
"We are so excited to have
this opportunity," said Windy

Teams compete in 23 differ-
ent events in physics, chemis-
try, earth space science, biol-
ogy and engineering.
With little time to gather
their wits and prepare for their
events, the coaches from both
Windy Ridge School teams
took hours instead of weeks
to quickly determine who will
compete on the final team. To
add to the pressure, the team
will not only be representing
the state of Florida, but for the
first time ever on this national

ange County Public Schools

In I Corinthians 15:19 it reads: "If in this
life only we have hope in Christ, we are of
all men most miserable" The Bible teaches
that once you are born into this world as.a
mortal you will always exist somewhere.
Today I wish to continue on the resurrec-
tion. I Corinthians 15, has much to say
about the resurrection. In verse 35: "But
some man will say, how are the dead raised
up? And with what body do they come?"
Verse 39: "All flesh is not the same flesh:
but there is one kind of flesh of men, an-
other flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and
another of birds." Verse 40 reads: "There
are also celestial bodies, and bodies ter-
restrial: but the glory of the celestial is one
and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
God created the different bodies for their


environments, some for the heaven, some
for the earth. What man or woman do you
know that can swim as deep in the oceans
and the seas as the fish...
In verse 44: "It is sown a natural body:
it is raised a spiritual body." There is a
natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
-This body we live in must change for the
environment of heaven (the saved). Verse
49: "And as we have borne the image of
the earthy, we shall also bear the image of
the heavenly." Part of I Corinthians 15:19
"If in this life only we have hope in Christ.
This mortal life shall.pass, but life eternal."
Life goes on, and on, never to end. God said
it and I believe it.
