Organizers are
calling this 1st
season in the
garden a great
success, and fall
gardens are now
being planned.
By Amy Quesinberry Rhode
Gardeners have been gath-
ering the last of their harvest
as the Florida heat penetrates
the plants and the soil at the
Winter Garden Community
Garden. Last Thursday morn-
ing, Bob Phillips collected a
few cantaloupes and tomatoes
and some ears of corn, Mat-
thew Creech picked the last of
his tomatoes and Lois Patton
cheered when she saw the size
of the two zucchini squash her
friend had grown.
All around them, cornstalks
blew in the hot breeze and
sunflowers more than six feet
tall towered over the other
vegetables, herbs and flowers
that have been growing in the
garden.
The city of Winter Garden
provided the five acres of land,
located at the northeast corner
of Pennsylvania- Avenue and
Ninth Street, for the garden.
This property was earmarked
for affordable housing, but of-
ficials say that is at least five
years away and wanted the
land to serve a useful purpose
now. The city also donated
$5,000 toward connecting the
garden to city water, building
a fence and installing a bridge
over a ditch at the entrance.
All 110 4-byl6-foot plots
were snapped up by residents
eager to trn their hand at grow -
ing w hen the garden was first
announced in February. They

State announces

2009 school grades


Local high school
principals comment
on this year's
results.
By Mary Anne Swickerath
No public school in Orange
County received an F grade
this year from the Florida De-
partment of Education. In ad-
dition, the state gave Orange.
County Public Schools an
A as a district for the second
straight year. Out of 149 OCPS
schools, 114 were rated A, 27
received B's, 21 C's and nine
D's, with no failing schools.
In fact, 10 percent of them
jumped two or more grades,
and two West Orange County
elementaries, Bay Meadows
and Palm Lake, posted their
11th-straight A rating. '
The grades, which the state
based on FCAT tests were an-
nounced last Thursday.
West Orange County el-
ementaries earning A's in-
cluded (besides Bay Meadows
and Palm Lake) Clarcona, Dr.
Phillips, Frangus, Lake Whit-
ney, MetroWest, Ocoee, Sand
Lake, Spring Lake, Sunset
Park, Thomebrooke, Tilden-
ville, Westbrooke arid Wind-
ermere. Both Spring Lake El-
ementary in Ocoee and Maxey
Elementary in Winter Garden
improved their grades. Spring
Lake went from a B in 2008 to
an A this year, and Maxey El-


ementao jumped two grades,
from a C to an A. Schools that
improved their grade will be
given extra money per student
by the state.
The only elementary school
in The West Orange Times'
coverage area not receiving an
A this year was Dillard Street
Elementary. The school was
given a B for 2009 after its A
rating last year.
All of the local middle
schools retained their A
grades, except for Ocoee
Middle, which posted a B this
year. Rated A were Bridgewa-
ter, Chain of Lakes, Gotha,
Lakeview and Southwest mid-
dle schools.
Of the four area high
schools, three lost a grade lev-
el this year and one improved
a grade level. Dr. Phillips High
and Olympia each went from
an A to a B and Ocoee High,
after three years of C grades,
dropped from a C to a D. West
Orange High moved up from a
C to a B, its first since 2005.
WOHS Principal ' James
Larsen told the Times: "It. is
nice to see the continued im-
provement with regard to our
school grade. However, our
major focus at West Orange
High School is to increase our.
graduation rate and expand the
opportunities for our gradu-
ates beyond high school. We
have shown consistent growth
over the past two years, and

and more. Rising among the
veggies were also bursts of
bright-colored annuals like
yellow sunflowers and red
zinnias.
First-time gardeners Bob


and Pat Phillips of Stonecrest
decided to see what they could
grow. It turns out their thumbs
were bright green, producing
quite a bit, including canta-
loupes, corn, tomatoes, beans,


Starke Lake onc<

open for water ac


By Mary Anne Swickerath
Boaters, fishermen and
water skiers can once more
,enjoy plying through the wa-
ters of Starke Lake in Ocoee.
At its regular meeting last
week, the City Commission
,rescinded its emergency reso-
lution designating the popular
lake (and its adjoining lake,
\


Lake Prima Vista) as a "no-
wake zone." This is because
the water level has dropped
10 inches from its highest
mark during the recent heavy
rains. Therefore, the lake will
be open this weekend and for
the upcoming July 4 holiday
weekend, said Mayor Scott
Vandergrift.
Besides the lessening of


radishes and cucumbers.
"We did very well; we real-
ly enjoyed it a lot," Bob Phil-
lips said. "This was a learning
experience.
The Phillipses are already
planning a fall garden.
"It's not just the economy,"
he said. "It's the fellowship"
with the neighboring garden-
ers.
Phillips added that he was
able to share quite a bit of
vegetables with a half-dozen
families benefiting from his
plot.
. Matthew Creech is a college
student who typically stops by
his garden patch after morn-
ing classes.
"It gives me something to
do. I love gardening," said
'Creech, who also has more
than 800 orchids growing at
his home.
His plot yielded corn, egg-
plant, cabbage and cilantro,
which he mixed into a pasta
sauce with his fresh tomatoes.
Charlie Mae Wilder is pres-
ident of the community gar-
den board of directors. She is
also a gardener who has been
reaping tomatoes, okra, pole
beans, collard greens, jala-
pefno peppers and squash that
you wouldn't imagine, she
said, adding that she cooked
it, froze it and gave it away to
shut-ins.
And she's already plan-
ning a summer garden, which
she'll plant next week with
squash, sweet potatoes "so
they'll be ready in the fall"
and collards.
Wilder is thrilled with the
success of this initial commu-
nity garden.

amazing has been to see those

Oakland man

shoots wife

then himself
An Oakland man is dead and
his wife is in critical condi-
tion after the two argued June
12 and he grabbed a handgun
and shot her twice in the chest
and himself once, according
to police.
The man was identified as
28-year-old Keshen Parboo,
and the wife is 23-year-old
SueAnn Kemraj.
The shooting happened on
Johns Landing Way at the
home the couple shared with
her parents and their two
young children. No one else
was injured.
According to police, the
children were taken outside by
a visiting relative when the ar-
gument started and before the
shooting occurred!
Parboo was taken to Health
Central in Ocoee but died
three days later. Kemraj was
airlifted to Orlando Regional
Medical Center.
Oakland Police Chief Tim
Driscoll stressed that this was
an isolated incident and that
"while tragic and upsetting
in such a small community,
it was not a situation that put
others in harm's way."

Gotha gardens listed as

most-endangered historical site


For the second consecutive
year, the Florida Trust for His-
toric Preservation announced
at its annual Statewide Pres-
ervation Conference that Dr.
Henry Nehrling's Palm Cot-
tage Gardens located in Gotha
is one of Florida's 11 most
endangered historical sites for
2009. Palm Cottage Gardens,
one of Florida's first tourist
attractions in the early 1900s,
was the home and working
gardens of noted horticultural-
ist Dr. Henry Nehrling, visited
by Thomas Edison, Dr. David
Fairchild and President Theo-
dore Roosevelt.
Over the years, the property
changed owners and sections
were sold. That, coupled with
increased development, has
diminished the 40-acre garden
so that only six acres of the
original homestead remain.
The property is currently list-


ed for sale and at risk of being
razed.
The Henry Nehrling Society
is working to save this 1880s
home and remaining garden,
which is listed on the National
Registry of Historic Places. The
society applied for a Historic
Preservation Special Category
Grant available through the
Florida Division of Historical
Resources. The grant was ap-
proved but not funded due to a
stressed state budget during the
current economic crisis. The
society currently has a contract
to purchase the property but has
the daunting task of raising the
last $301,000 by September.
"This is unfortunate, since
this grant would have funded
half of the acquisition price.
We have two smaller grants,
but they are dependent on the
purchase," said Angela Withers,
development director. "Henry


Local police and fire reports


Shots fired near 429,
Stoneybrook Pkwy.
On June 16 at approximately
7:35 p.m., Winter Garden police
responded to a report of shots
being fired at a vehicle in the
area of Stoneybrook Parkway
and State Road 429. Follow-up
reports were received that an
involved vehicle was in Ocoee
and the occupants were fleeing
on foot.
Winter Garden police
investigators responded and
determined the fleeing subjects
were from the target vehicle and
one of the occupants had been
shot in the back of the head.
Emergency crews transported
the victim, 20-year-old Tiara
Lipsey, to Orlando Regional
Medical Center in stable
condition.
Police said that when they
interviewed the occupants in
the vehicle, they said they had
gone to a home on County Road
535 near Overstreet Road to


Ocoee
Winter Garden Road should re-
ceive its certificate of occupancy
shortly. The facility was expected
to be open by June 22 with, he
said, "a grand-opening party to
follow."
Frank also advised them that
the city is predicting a loss of rev-
enue in an amount "well over $2
million" for the upcoming fiscal
year that begins in October.
On another matter, William
Maxwell of the City of Ocoee
Human Relations/Diversity
Board reported to the commis-
sion on the board's past accom-
plishments and future plans. The
board's activities have included
the Martin Luther King Jr. Pa-
rade, Black History Month Es-
say Contest, Red Ribbon Week,
Safety Fest and National Night
Out.
To keep up with all of these
activities, the Diversity Board,
which currently has six active
members, needs to focus on re-
cruitment, said Maxwell.
The board wants to represent
"all ethnic groups within the
city," he added, "to make Ocoee
the center of good living for
all."
Commissioner Joel Keller
praised the work of the board,
saying: "What a wonderful job
they've done. This board has
been a very diverse board and a
very active board."
Mayor Vandergrift agreed, ex-


commit a robbery. The residents
opened the door with handguns
displayed, police said, and the
group fled in the vehicle.
According to police, the
residents located the suspects
on C.R. 535 at Lake Butler and
began to follow them, shooting
twice at the vehicle as it turned
onto Stoneybrook Parkway
eastbound.
Investigators followed leads
to identify the residence and
residents, police said, and two
alleged shooters were arrested:
Karian A. Graves, 19, and
Matthew C. Beckford, 17.
Weapons were also recovered
during a search warrant
execution.

Ocoee police report
For June 11-17, the Ocoee
Police Department reports 47
crimes (with 15 cleared by ar-
rest):
Aggravated assault- 1
Burglary-7
DUI-2



plaining that as an Ocoee native
he had seen a strain of bigotry
"run through this community,"
a .community that has become
increasingly multi-cultural.
"Now we are an international
community," he said. "I'm very
proud of what we've done and
where we're going."
Maxwell informed the com-
mission that the board plans on

Schools
(Continued from 1A)
I am confident that the trend will
continue. While we are pleased
with the B grade, we will continue
to push even harder to attain even
greater heights next year."
"It's ironic," said Ocoee High
Principal Mike Armbruster, "that
just after our school was rated as
one of the top high schools in the
U.S. by Newsweek, we get a D
grade from the state of Florida."
He also said Ocoee High rates
highly according to other indica-
tors: "We were No. 1 in the county
in annual yearly progress, No. 5
in the district in graduation rates
and No. 2 in the district in gradu-
ation rates of African American
students."
It's important, said Armbruster,
to realize school grades are low-
ered if the rate of improvement for
the lowest 25 percent of students
does not increase over the previ-
ous year. For example, Ocoee
High ninth- and 10th-graders in
that lowest 25 percent scored 41
percent on the FCAT reading test
two years ago when the school
was rated a C school. Last year
that group raised its percent-
age to 48 percent and was rated
a C school. This year the same
group posted a 41 percent, caus-
ing Ocoee High to receive its D
rating.
"Our students' progress is
graded one and one-half years
into their high school careers,"
he said. "With some students it
just takes longer than that."
And he added, "The way the
state rates high schools is a flawed
process."
In response to a question from
the Times, both Olympia and Dr.
Phillips principals reported the
same reason for each of their
schools going from an A to B.
Principal Jenny Gibson-Linkh
said Olympia High earned 529
points from the state, well over
the required points of 525, for a
school grade of anA. But, she ex-
plained, "The state penalized our
school because we did not make
a gain with our reading students
in the bottom 25 percent quartile"
and thereby dropping Olympia
one letter grade.
Dr. Phillips Principal Eugene
Trochinski said: "We received
enough points to earn an A grade
again; however, students in the
lower 25 percent did not make ad-
equate learning gains. This caused
us to lose one letter grade on the
state's grading system."


Stefanlie Nicole Carrier
2008 West Orange High School Graduate, has completed
her first year at Florida Gulf Coast University. Stefanie

Opinion


Did you know that part of a school's
grade as determined by the Florida De-
partment of Education depends on how
many students scored better or worse
than the previous year and that there are
some schools that can earn B's or C's
despite the fact that their FCAT scores
were better than those of schools that
were rated as A's?
School grades involve a tricky for-
mula. To receive a top grade, schools
must have the bottom 25 percent of stu-
dents improve in reading and math. If
that group of students' results are the
same as the year before, the school will
must likely lose a letter grade. If the
results are even several points lower, the
schools rating will definitely drop.
That's what happened to Ocoee, Olym-
pia and Dr. Phillips high schools.
We support accountability in public
education. We think schools should
work hard to close the gap between

This is the eighth year that Steve and Connie
Holland have spent the 10-week racing season
at the Pompano Beach quarter horse racetrack
shuttling between Winter Garden and Pompano
Beach. At least 17 of the horses that run during
this racing season are out of the Hollands' stables
in Winter Garden. For several years, they were


high-achieving students and low-
achieving ones. We just think the pub-
lic should be aware of what the state's
school grades mean.
Much of what a high school is about
is not part of that tricky formula. Things
such as graduation rates, advanced
placement results or high achievements
by students in music, math, science and
theater. Things such as the spirit of the
school, community support or the pres-
tigious scholarships won by graduating
seniors.
We applaud all the hard work done
by our local teachers, administrators
and parents in teaching and reinforcing
the reading, math, science and writing
skills tested by the FCAT. And we con-
gratulate all the schools that excelled in
FCAT testing. We just want everyone
to be aware of what is not taken into
consideration, especially at the high
school level.

Update on school funding after 2009 legislative session


In our opinion

Editorials


Some thoughts on school grades


By Christine Moore
The 2009-10 public school budget main-
tains the current level of spending - a level
established in January 2009 when the Legis-
lature assessed a mid-year budget cut. It is a
budget for next year that, when compared to
two years ago, will be 7.2 percent lower ($17.9
billion statewide compared to $19.2 billion in
FY 2007-2009).
A bit of historical perspective on funding
levels show per-pupil funding increases to have
lagged inflation and the full impact of the class
size reduction amendment. The per-pupil fund-
ing level 10 years ago (1999) was $4,832, and in
those 10 years, inflation has grown 29 percent
($1,393) and class size reductions 15 percent
($1,035) increasing the per-pupil requirement
for next year to $7,260 ($387 more than the
2009-10 per-pupil funding of $6,873). This, of
course, does not take into account additional
expenditures mandated during that time, such as.
school recognition, reading initiatives, Supple-
mental Academic Instruction, merit awards, etc,
which, while all worthwhile, have added to the.
per-pupil costs and are not reflected in the per-
pupil increases funded by the Legislature
The budget requires Florida school districts
to hold the line on current services. It is, howev-
er, probably the best school boards could have
hoped for given present economic conditions.
We are grateful that the drastic cuts to education
were minimized.
The 2009 Legislature used $907 million in
federal stimulus dollars to fund 5 percent of
the public school operating budget and, for the
second straight year, also direct school districts
to transfer more of the funds previously desig-
nated for school construction costs to balance
their operating budgets. School boards were
given the flexibility to move the construction
funds back to capital expenditures and levy ad-
ditional millage to fill the hold in our operating
budgets.
Thus, the Legislative proposal of an addi-
tional .25 mill property tax increase was the
subject of a work session held on June 16. The

Orange County School Board did not give con-
sensus to levying this additional .25 mill on
property owners. Reasons given by myself and
those members on the prevailing side included:
it is the wrong time to fund education on the
backs'of hurting homeowners, the district still
has more work to do in finding operational ef-
ficiencies and the State Constitution declares
the primary role of funding education to be the
job of the Florida Legislature while the School
Board statutorily is directed toward operations
and policy decisions.
School boards across the state will thus still
have to make cuts in operating budgets to ac-
commodate shortfalls; however, they are not
facing the projected 15 to 17 percent reduc-
tions that were on the table at the start of the
2009 Legislative Session. The pending addi-
tion of the federal stimulus funds and potential
transfer of funds from school construction uses
to classroom instruction will prevent the pro-
jected "funding cliff" presumably for the next
two school years.
While we have passed through one side of
the funding storm, we are now in the eye of the
hurricane. This period of relative budget stabil-
ity - courtesy of the federal government and its
stimulus funding - will last two years. When
that period ends, school systems will face the
other side of the storm, and nobody can predict
with certainty how bad it could be.
The larger discussion that needs to begin
right away is how the state plans to weather
the 2011-12 funding hurricane and encourage
economic recovery and growth of the economy.
Optimist predictions about recovery cannot lull
our community into a period of inaction or pro-
crastination. The Orange County School Board
must tackle many challenging issues in order to
continue to lead our students to success during
these difficult economic conditions.
I welcome your input and concerns during
this process, and I may be reached at christine.

Af a AL.m Oakland


Honored nursing assistants at Health Central Park are, I-r: front, Marette Cineus, Mir-
laine St. Hilaire, Donna Forbes; back, Carleen Raphael, Lisa Burnette, Pat Oliver, Jean
Sookchan and Paula Becaroo-Falconer.

HCP celebrates National CNA Week


With nursing assistants at Health Central Park
winning the titles of Florida Association of Nurse
Assistants CNA of the Year and Career CNA
of the Year for 2007 and 2008, the facility had
something to celebrate during National CNA
Week. Health Central Park took this opportunity
to say thank-you to its award-winning CNAs.
On Thursday, the CNAs showed their dancing
skills as several times during the day they took
time out for a "shake break" to '80s music. CNA
dancers were given prizes. Residents and staff
at Health Central Park periodically, throughout
the year, take "shake breaks." When the music
begins, everyone stops what they are doing and
dances for a few minutes to energize the mood


and instill a bit of fun into the day for all.
Friday night was dinner, dancing and disco.
Everyone present got to enjoy one of the prizes
donated by generous vendors. The "Pizza Parlor"
was opened for lunch and rock 'n' roll on Satur-
day. Sunday was a day to enjoy quieter music of
the '50s while having cake and punch.
Who doesn't like ice cream? It was enjoyed in
the '40s when folks could get it. On Monday, ice
cream was provided for the CNAs, along with a
taste of '40s music,
Even though every era and every day was fun,
by Tuesday it was back to the present. Presents
were given to the nursing assistants to ease the
transition.

Sunflowers towered above the Winter Garden Community
Garden off Ninth Street.

"[The garden] exploded far beyond
what I expected it to. The people
who have gardens there are
eating out of them regularly."
Jerry Carris, master gardener


Lois Patton, who was visiting from Melbourne, was thrilled
to find 2 giant zucchini squash in her friend's garden.


Zinnias and other colorful flowers brightened up the gar-
den.


Garden
(Continued from lA)
seniors sitting at home really not
doing much of anything coming
out and getting involved, getting
energized," she said. "And it en-
ergized me to see them do it."
The garden has brought to-
gether diverse groups of people.
There is a section for students at
places like Maxey Elementary
School and Bethlehem Mis-
sionary Baptist Church. There
are 10 plots that are built higher
to accommodate handicapped
gardeners. Five plots are still
producing vegetables for the
West Orange Christian Service
Center in Ocoee, and staff is able
to distribute the food to residents
in need. At least 10 spaces are
designated "garden angel" plots,
where someone has purchased a
spot and donated it to someone
else.
Three master gardeners.--
Edward Thralls and Jerry Carris
and Gean House, both of Winter
Garden - have served as advi-
sors at the garden.
Carris called the garden "a
grand success" and said, "It
exploded far beyond what I ex-
pected it to. The people who have
gardens there are eating out of
them regularly."
And although he has harvest-
ed such vegetables as tomatoes,
zipper green peas and onions, he
said that summer is not a good
gardening time in Florida.
"Our real gardening season
starts in September and runs all
through the cooler months, and
that's when we can grow most of
our vegetables," Carris said.
The fall garden should bring
some excitement to the commu-
nity, Wilder said, with the addi-
tion of a pumpkin patch and a fall
festival sometime in October.
The board is working on an
essay contest for students and
a booklet to be sold at minimal
cost that will include coupons for
snacks, drinks, games, a turn in a
bounce house and maybe even a
pony ride. Table games will also
be set up for senior citizens.
There are 43 people on the
waiting list hopingto have a
turn at gardening, but Carris
isn't eager to expand until the
master gardeners and the board
are "comfortable with the man-
agement."
So until then, residents waiting
for their own plot might just have
to make friends with the 110 gar-
deners already there.
Wilder is grateful for the
friendships that have developed
in the garden.
"Coming together as a people
- that means an awful lot to us
in Winter Garden."


Matthew Creech picks quite a few ripe tomatoes from his garden.

Barefoot steps down

as Panther

baseball coach


Dr. Phillips High's Mike
Barefoot announced his res-
ignation last week as head
baseball coach, and Assistant
Coach Mike Bradley has been
named his successor.
Barefoot led the DP baseball
program for eight years, com-
piling a record of 119-102-3,
including district champion-
ships in 2005 and 2006 with
a run to the Elite Eight and
a Metro Conference title in
2004.
Barefoot said he wants to
spend more time with his
family, and he will remain on
staff as an assistant to Coach
Bradley.
"The Dr. Phillips High
School Athletic Department
is indebted to Coach Barefoot
for his leadership, wisdom and
integrity over the last eight
years," said John Magrino,


DPHS athletic director. "His
policies were always fair with a
focus on the school's reputation
first. His teams always worked
hard on and off the field, were
pillars of sportsmanship and
earned a reputation of giant-
killers in the playoffs."
Bradley is a Dr. Phillips
graduate (1998) who was
a member of the Panthers'
state championship team of
1996. He attended St. Leo
University on scholarship
and was an assistant coach at
Edgewater and Winter Springs
before coming home to assist
Barefoot in 2008.
"His enthusiasm, loyalty
and pride in Dr. Phillips High
School will make for a seam-
less transition as Panther base-
ball looks to continue its tradi-
tion of excellence," Magrino
said.

Magic fans say 'thank you'

By Kerri Anne Renzulli
In Florida, drowning is
the leading cause of death of
children aged 14 and under,
according to the Centers for
Disease Control and Preven-
tion. SwimKids USA aims to
diminish this threat of drown-
ing for local residents by hold-
ing four-week swim classes
for the first time at the West
Orange Country Club till Sep-
tember.
"It breaks my heart to see
on the front page a child has
drowned when maybe if they
had learned to swim they could
nt have survived," said Kim Wil-
d liams, president of SwimKids
r; USA-Central Florida.
a, Swim lessons provide a safe
k- introduction to the water and
the concept of swimming,
which is necessary in a state
where water - whether in the
form of a local pool, a boat
ride on the Chain of Lakes or
a trip to the shore - is. every-
where.
"In Florida, not knowing
how to swim is not an option.
Drowning is the biggest rea-
son kids under 5 die," Wil-
liams said. "Whether you do
swim lessons or not, it is im-
portant to know how to swim
for your own safety because
we are always around water
living in Florida and you want
to be able to have fun."
SwimKids USA's class are
designed to familiarize chil-
dren and adults with pool en-
vironments while instilling
habits of safety and the nec-
essary skills to help survive
a drowning situation should
they find themselves in one.
ie "If you have a pool at your
house or are near water a lot,
I recommend teaching your
child to swim as soon as pos-
sible," Williams said. "If you
don't have a pool or do not go
near water, there is no chance
of drowning, so you can wait
until 2."
Classes are.held twice
a week on Tuesdays and
Thursday or Saturdays and
Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1:30
p.m. for four weeks for a to-
tal of eight lessons. Class time
ranges from 20 to 3,0 minutes

swim lessons at West Orange Country Club.


depending on the child's age
and swimming ability. Classes
for adults who want to learn
how to swim are available as
well. Class size is limited to
six students, and tuition for
each level of class is $128.
Each class level focuses on
mastering a specific skill, such
as having a 1- or 2-year-old
swim from the center of the
pool back to the wall from
five feet away. Higher-level
classes build upon the skills
learned earlier, ending in the
Level-10 class, which focuses
on perfecting three competi-
tive strokes.
"I love the joy and excite-
ment the kids and parents get
when they have accomplished
their goals and can swim
across the pool, especially if
a child was terrified before or
had a close drowning experi-
ence," Williams said. "Now
they love the water, and their
parents are relieved they can


all go to the pool and enjoy it
and not worry about drown-
ing."
Alan Messing founded
SwimKids USA in 1985 in
Tampa, and the company has
since branched out all over the
state of Florida, even crossing
the state line into Georgia. Its
recent expansion into the Cen-
tral Florida area is part of the
company's new quest to have
as many pools teaching swim
lessons as they currently have
teaching in Tampa.
"I'm originally from Cler-
mont, and I wanted to take
SwimKids to this area," Wil-
liams said. "I'm hoping by
next year we will have been
able to branch out and have
more pools to teach at in [West
Orange County]."

MetroWest Golf Club hosts EWGA tournament


Wildfire win Father's Day title
The Windermere Wildfire 98 softball team members gave their dads a great Father's Day
gift by winning the 10U Warriors State Tournament Warm-Up in Longwood on Sunday.

Women from across Central
Florida arrived at MetroWest
Golf Club on June 13 to com-
pete in the first leg of one of the
largest women's amateur golf
tournaments in the world -
the Executive Women's Golf
Association (EWGA) champi-
onship.
Introduced one-by-one on
the first tee by the tournament
starter, from just after dawn to
mid-morning, EWGA Orlando
chapter members faced their
golfing demons on one of the
best public golf courses in the
area to see who would represent
them in the semifinal tourna-
ment in July. When the day was
over, 13 women golfers out of
a field of 55 made the cut and
will be moving on to the district
semifinal championship at the
Amelia Island Resort, Amelia
River Course in Fernandina
Beach.
The tournament had individu-
als competing in all flights, in-
cluding championship (under 10


handicap), as well as scramble
teams. Finalists from each flight
and one scramble team go on
to the semifinals tournament.
There they will compete with
other EWOA chapters from
across the North Florida and
Southeast region for a spot at
the final event - the EWGA
Championship.
The final leg of the tourna-
ment is held over two days,
from Sept. 25-26, at the PGA
Golf Club in Port St. Lucie.
"This is not only a significant
tournament for our organization,
but it is a showcase of women's
competitive participation in the
game of golf," said Linda De-
Bartolo, EWGA Orlando chap-
ter president.
The EWGA Qrlando chapter
members are students, profes-
sionals, retirees and homemak-
ers who all share a common love
for the game of golf. The chapter
welcomes players of all levels
and offers a wide range of golf-
ing opportunities, social activi-


ties, golf clinics and networking
events. Find out more at www.

took advantage of the warm weather. Elvis Crespo Ceruto and Megan Mon-
teleone enjoy the the boating activities available on Lake Florence.


Just after Windermere Prep 8th-graders finished the Jerry Spinelli rovel 'Stargirl,' they
decided to re-enact the book's ending by dancing the Bunny Hop. Led by (l-r) Madison
Holton, Natalia Orellana and Victoria Price, the students formed a dance line and bunny
hopped their way to the high school campus, where WPS freshman and sophomores
joined in as a way of welcoming the 8th-graders to high school.

In April, students at Whispering Oak Elementary participated in a book drive
sponsored by the Student Council. Students were encouraged to bring in gen-
tly used books from home to donate to a local school. The school collected
more than 2,000 books. The Student Council members, along with chapter
adviser Shannon Deveault, delivered the many boxes of books to Rolling Hills
Elementary. The book drive was 1 of the many service projects the Student
Council representatives participated in this year.
Tildenville


The 5th-grade classes,
staff and parents at-
tended Tildenville El-
ementary's annual award
ceremony, and Principal
Balgobin presented the
students with special
awards and certificates
to recognize their goals
as they advance to
middle school. After the
ceremony, the staff and
parents served refresh-
ments, including the 2
cakes donated by Partner

Frangus


The 5th-graders at Thornebrooke Elementary raised $191 for the SPCA of Central Flor-
ida. The students used $91 to purchase supplies for the animals and donated $100 to
be used as needed.


The Modem Woodsmen of America hold oration contests in the schools in
the spring. This year's topic was 'A Person Who Has Changed Many Lives.'
Student had to write and give a speech of 3-5 minutes explaining who they
felt had changed many lives. Frangus' winners were Regina Fortune (Nelson
Mandela), Brett Vorheis (Steve Irwin) and Gabriel Hirlal (Albert Einstein).

Booz Allen Hamilton
donates books
Each child in Carolyn
Lightsey's English as a Sec-
ond Language (ESOL) class
at Ocoee Elementary School*
now has several good books
to read thanks to a donation
from Booz Allen Hamilton's
Orlando office. Charlotte
Donaldson, an associate
with the firm, has been vol-
unteering weekly at the
school for three years with
the Read2Succeed program
and approached her firm
I


about making the donation.
Studies show that read-
ing is a skill that needs to be
mastered early.
"I wanted to help build the
students' love for reading,"
said Donaldson, "and there's
no better way to do that than
by providing children with
their own books and encour-
aging reading on their own."
Donaldson felt confident
that Booz Allen, a strategy
and technology consulting
firm, would help because the
firm's philanthropic model


is based on empowering its
employees as catalysts for
change in their communi-
ties.
The firm encourages
grassroots employee volun-
teering and through its work-
place is able to help a broad
range of community and
charitable organizations. In
2008, Booz Allen volunteers

pro bono hours, valued at
$2.6 million dollars to sup-
port 24 domestic nonprofit
organizations.

- Central Florida Christian Academy- Fifteen graduate from early-morning seminary

The Middle School By Victoria Laney


Showcase at Central
Florida Christian
Academy brought
the 6th-, 7th- and
8th-graders together
for a night of awards
for academics, as
well as for history
projects that were
displayed through-
out the auditorium.
The overall winner of
the History Fair was
8th-grader Bret Opt-
ting, who built a rep-
lica of the twin tow-
ers and the terrorist
attack of Sept. 11.


After four years of classes
that started as early as 5:15
a.m., 15 teens graduated from
the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints Seminary
on June 7. The students met in
homes and churches to study
the Scriptures and church his-
tory before leaving for their
classes at high schools.
President David Halversen
of the church presented the
diplomas to the graduates and
shook their hands, The church
sponsors the classes, which are
open to students of all faiths.
Five' graduates spoke at the
ceremony.
"Yes, it is hard to get up early,
but it has been worth it," said
Katherine Valadares of the
Semoran seminary.
Thomas Fundora, Wind-
ermere, said he was planning
to leave on a mission as soon as
his papers are processed. Habits
he developed in seminary will
help him to be an effective mis-
sionary.
Caroline Skjersaa, Olympia,
said she .left her house every
morning before 5:15 feeling
like a "zombie," and soon
turned into a "spiritual warrior,"
after her seminary classes.
"The scriptures are a roadmap
that leads us to a better future,"
said Brooke Eichelberger, Win-
ter Garden. "They helped me to
focus on what really matters."
Cheri Mauerman, Bumby,
told how she applied one of
the lessons she learned in semi-
nary to conquer a challenge she

and her grandmother, Myna Herald of Ocoee.


faced in high school.
Other graduates were Travis
Amos and Leyla Shill, Olym-
pia; Maura Bustamante, Win-
ter Garden; Leah Green, Paola
Zarate and Alison .Hanson,
Windermere; Denise Herald
and Steven Maha'a, Bumby;
and Nancy Valladares, Semo-
ran.
Five students received High
Honors for reading the entire
New Testament, reading the
Bible daily for at least 205 days,
90 percent on-time attendance
and memorizing 100 assigned
Scriptures.
They were Austin Claiborne
and Chris Opificius, Ocoee;
Lais and Elisa Oliveira, Win-
ter Garden; and Carolyn Skjer-
saa, Olympia. Nineteen earned
Honors, fulfilling the same re-


quirements, except that they
memorized 25 scriptures and
had 80 percent attendance. Six
students earned 100 percent on-
time attendance.
"We doubled the number of
graduates this year, and it is
because of the hard work and
dedication of the students and
their teachers," said Geraldine
Preisser, Ocoee.
As the Stake Seminary super-
visor, Preisser serves without
pay, as do each of the seven
teachers. She graduated from
seminary, many years ago
while a student at Apopka High
School.
"It has been a great founda-
tion for the rest of my life, and
I am pleased to be able to help
these students have the same
experience," she said.

Mentoring Program
This spring more than 500
students at West Orange High
were mentored by 57 volun-
teers during their HOPE class.
The mentoring program was
the largest implementation of
p the program by volunteers in
Ii the world.
. In the 2009-10 school year,
- there will be more than 1,000
n students taking HOPE and
more than 100 volunteers will
be needed as mentors and to
assist with planning/organizing
Ic weekly lessons and activities.
C . For more information on how
to be a part of this award-win-
t ning program that is impacting
the lives of students at WOHS,
plan to attend the information


session on June 30 at 10 a.m.
in the school auditorium.

School grade is B
The administration extends
a big thank-you to the faculty,
staff, parents, community and
students for all their hard work
this past year. As a result of
unprecedented effort by .all,
WOHS increased its overall
school grade by 15 points.
This resulted in receiving a B
for the school grade.
The administration is looking
forward to the new year in Au-
gust with the intention of build-
ing upon this success and is
asking students, parents and
the community to continue to
be involved.


S JDUNWELL@WESTWODoCHUFCH.COMN
"My world feels like its coming unglued!" 'The
things I once thought were unshakeable are being
toppled!" Whether I'm meeting with someone in
my office who has just lost their job or listening to
some talking head onTV describing another failing
business or institution, a new harmony is breaking
forth. People feel a sense of insecurity about the
future. Our staid institutions, the products of our
ingenuity, hard work, and lifetimes, seem to be
crumbling in short season. The devastation of a
natural disaster, unchecked greed, or the indiscre-
dtion of a loved one can quickly level our lives and
our sense of security.
In one sense this reminds us of the destructiveness
of sin. The heights we achieve with all of our hu-
man potential mean we have a greater distance to
fall when this devastation occurs. As Americans we
are shocked when a hurricane can whip through and
leave us helpless...and angered when systems fail
and leaders disappoint
Christ's conversation about His return in Matthew
24, and its accompanying signs, surely add to this
discussion about our world's need for change. No
matter what we think we've achieved, sin and its
devastating consequences need to be dealt with.
And even though we appear to have accomplished
much, we are evidently still far from having the sin
problem licked. It's obvious in the best of systems,
and pops its head up even in the greatest of peo-
ple. Jesus, who dealt a death blow to sin through
his death on the cross, promises to finish the work
with His return. And most of us, as we see starving
children, victims of violence, and the injustice of
evil governments, pray for the reign of justice and
righteousness His return will bring.
Though we find tremendous hope and assurance in
Christ's promises for the future, we must live in the
present. And as we witness some of the unsettling
signs (Matthew 24) of our crafted world coming
unglued, we have different responses.
Some of us, feeling removed from the chaos,
'choose to disengage. tfe becomes segmented
and partitioned. Christ's admonitions about the
Kingdom become applicable for us at best with
boundaries, and at the worst are nothing more than
idealistic dreams for the future. Hope for the pain
of a hurting world with its injustice and violence
is partitioned into the category of "some day when
He returns".
Others of us move to fear, creating walls of iso-
lation. Rather than partitioning off the world, we
feel compelled to defend ourselves against it. A
survivalist mentality ensues, and we find ourselves
looking forward to that "day of judgment" upon
"those people".
And still others become preoccupied with these
signs. We pull out our charts, paste together the
Scriptures, and boldly proclaim conclusions which
Christ clearly says only His Father knows. Our
pontifications about knowing the times, the Scrip-
tures, and exactly what God is doing at this moment
create a credibility issue. .
None of these responses seem adequate. Is God's
call to us just to wait, hold on, and hope? I'm not
sure that's what Christ had in mind us he moved for-
word (recorded in Matthew 25). In fact, He gives
some specific instructions, detailing what we are
to be about when it feels like our world is coming
unglued. Read my blog over the next few days as I
share mqre perspective.

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


In Isaiah 14:12; "How art thou fallen from heaven, 0
Lucifer, son of the morning! How are thou cut to the
ground, which didst weaken the nations!",
Verses 13 and 14: "For thou hast said in thine heart,
I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above
the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the
congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend
above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most
high (God). So Lucifer said, I will be like the most
high."
He was putting himself on the same level with God.
No one in heaven or on earth is equal to God. God can
speak and new worlds come into existence.
Lucifer was created by God God also gave him free-
dom of choice, like ,:iu .and I h3ae
Someume, e choose "r.':ng We mortal' of earth

limit God and his ability. God has lost none of his pow-
er. God is not dead, he still lives.
You might say what is God doing right now? He is
doing many things. Calling out a body of believers (the
church), he keeps Satan from taking over. He is allowing
you a few more days, perhaps years, allowing you the
time to exercise your freedom of choice.
Before long the curtains will close on this dispensation
of time and the Lord Jesus Christ will appear. He did say
"If I go away,.I shall come again."
Won't you agree that this world could stand improve-
ment? I believe it will take God to straighten it out. The
creation is never greater than the creator.
I'm glad we have this opportunity for this mortal life.
