W.G. laments paying railroad crossing costs


By Michael Laval

City leaders reluctantly swallowed
a bitter pill last Thursday, agreeing to
pay $384,319 to the Florida Central
Railroad Co. in order to move forward
with plans to widen East Plant Street.
The project requires an agreement
to expand the road width across the
railroad crossing located east of West
Crown Point Springs and the East
Plant Street intersection.
This will involve 'widening Plant
Street at the railroad crossing, extend-
ing city utility lines under the railroad
tracks and reimbursing Florida Cen-
tral Railroad for the removal and re-
placement of tracks, railbeds, railroad
signs and any other improvements that


might be deemed necessary.
Mayor John Rees expressed disbe-
lief that the city would be required to
pay such a large penalty, but City Man-
ager Michael Bollhoefer and City At-
torney Kurt Ardaman both confirmed
that after examining the agreement
thoroughly, Winter Garden had little
choice in the matter.
"The railroads have a lot of power
derived from federal laws passed in
the late 1800s," Bollhoefer said.
The fee Winter Garden faces is part
of a standard contract for crossing a
railroad line, Don Cochran, public ser-
vices director, told the commission.
If a road needs to cross an existing
railroad line, the road building agen-
cy bears the cost of the crossing and
future maintenance. Conversely, if a


railroad needed to cross an existing
road, the railroad company would get
the bill.
In this case, Bollhoefer explained,
the current Plant Street crossing re-
placed the former downtown crossing
as part of a deal with the city years ago
to construct the West Orange Trail.
As a result, this railroad crossing was
given the status of having existed prior
to the road.
In other business, the elected offi-
cials:,
* approved the first reading and pub-
lic hearing of a proposed ordinance to
rezone 40.9 acres in south Winter Gar-
den that will be the site of an OCPS el-
ementary and middle school campus.
The property is located southwest of
Siplin Road and east of County Road


545 and could be rezoned from Orange
County Agricultural to City R-2 at a
second public hearing set for July 23.
* passed a series of ordinances that
annexed 0.17 acres at 11 Broad St. and
rezoned three small parcels of prop-
erty. About 0.8 acres located at 778
South St. was rezoned from Orange
County Citrus Rural and City PUD to
City R-l, 0.15 acres at 629 Bethune,
Ave. was rezoned from Orange County
R-2 to City R-4, and 0.34 acres at 1261
E. Bay St. was rezoned from Orange
County R-2 to City R-4.
* approved a one-year lawn mainte-
nance contract with Aristocuts Lawn
and Garden Services.
* passed a resolution encouraging
Winter Garden residents to participate
in the upcoming U.S. Census 2010.


Turnpike making its way through Winter Garden
The Florida Department of Transportation's Florida Turnpike-widening project is cutting
its way through Winter Garden, and many residents are seeing the work done right in
their own backyards as new acoustical walls are installed. This $68.8-million project con-
sists of widening the Turnpike from 4 to 8 lanes and 6 to 12 lanes from milepost 266 to
milepost 269 in Orange County, as well as the construction of bridges over Beulah Road
and the reconstruction of the West Colonial Drive connector bridge over the Turnpike. In
addition, 3 bridges at Winter Garden-Vineland and Avalon roads and West Colonial Drive
are being replaced. The completion date is-set for August 2010. The project also includes
the installation of noise-abatement walls on DOT right-of-way for qualifying property own-
ers adjacent to the Turnpike. (At left) A drill rig sets its mark for a new hole behind the

Nature preserve receives large education grant


The Oakland Nature Pre-
serve has been awarded a
grant designated for its envi-
ronmental education program.
The completion of the Envi-
ronmental Education Building
allows ONP to greatly expand
its education programs - and
this grant will enable the pre-
serve to initiate new programs
at several levels.
The grant was awarded by


the Winifred Johnson Clive
Foundation. Clive, who made
her home in Orlando, was an
artist and was very interested
in preserving the natural beau-
ty of Florida.
She often visited Oakland
many years ago to sketch and
paint. Her family foundation
has a mission to continue to
fund her areas of interest.
The grant was for $25,000


but also carries a matching
challenge of an additional
$12,500 if ONP can raise a to-
tal of $12,500 before Sept. 1.
A major priority of the ONP
board is hiring an education
director.
Board members are now
making plans to start a major
fund-raising drive during the
next two months to bring in
the matching funds.


Windermere faces


2 court challenges


A long-time
drainage issue
prompts the
resident to take
court action.

By Kathy Aber

Andrew McCarthy, who
lives at 915 W. Second Ave.,
has filed two lawsuits against
the town of Windermere.
The first is an inverse con-
demnation suit that is now
pending in federal court. In
it, McCarthy alleges that the
town installed a berm that
diverts stormwater onto his
property.
McCarthy told The West
Orange Times last week that
part of the berm is in the Sec-
ond Avenue right-of-way and
part of it is on his property.
In the second case, he com-
plains the town has limited
his access to public records,
hampering his ability to gath-
er information for the first


lawsuit. This lawsuit is ex-
pected to be heard in Circuit
Court, the Ninth Judicial Cir-
cuit in Orange County, in the
next month or so, but a court
date has yet to be set.
McCarthy said he has
been appealing to the Town
Council for approximately
18 months to have the berm
and drainage improvements
removed.
His co-plaintiff in the in-
verse condemnation suit is
his grandmother, Faye Hood
Stanford, from whom he is
leasing the property with an
option to purchase. At this
time, McCarthy said he owns
more than 50 percent of the
property.
In his complaint, he said
"the asphalt curb-like berm
had been installed along the.
road immediately in front of
the property located at 903
W. Second Ave" in Novem-
ber 2004 by the town with-
out the permission of the

plaintiffs and against their will.
The complaint says Stanford,
since 2004, repeatedly asked the
town to remove the berm. The
plaintiffs allege the diversion of
stormwater onto their property
has resulted in a lowered property
value in excess of $200,000.
McCarthy and his attorney,
Tom Ross of the Orlando firm
Akerman Senterfitt, discussed
this drainage matter with the
Town Council, most recently, in
May 2008.
At that time, McCarthy and
Ross told the elected officials'
subsequent drainage solutions
installed by the town were not
working or were aggravating
the problem. McCarthy, who is
also an attorney, told the Town
Council he would file a lawsuit
the following day if the issue
could not be resolved amicably
and immediately.
Town Attorney Tom Wilkes
told McCarthy at the May 2008
meeting that he had provided no
credible engineering evidence
that water coming from town
property was causing the prob-
lem. He urged McCarthy to get
an independent engineer to ana-
lyze the situation.
With the imminent threat of a
lawsuit, the council initially re-
sponded by authorizing the town
manager to obtain a topographi-
cal survey of the property and up
to two properties to the east and
two lots to the west and an engi-
neering stormwater analysis. The
council suggested the surveyor
and engineer meet with McCa-
rthy before they started the work


to agree on the specifics needed
to address the drainage issues.
Council Member Bob Sprick
voted against the motion because
he believed litigation was inevi-
table.
After the vote, Town Attorney
Wilkes asked McCarthy and his
attorney if they were satisfied
with the council's response and
would not proceed with filing the

McCarthy and Ross did not
give a definite answer, saying
they would think it over.
Six days later, May 19, council

elected officials rescinded the
action taken at the regular May

McCarthy filed the first lawsuit
in February.

truly appreciate you all.
Thank you for taking such
good care of our mother. God
bless all of you.

Motion for Protective Order with
the court regarding the public re-
cords access complaint. The town
motion addresses the McCarthy's
conduct prior to and during the
records inspection, his failure to
act in good faith in scheduling the
inspections and other issues.
Conner also said the plaintiffs
are trying to have the inverse
condemnation suit moved from
federal court to state court. He
said the town will argue that U.S.
District Courts have jurisdiction
in all civil actions rising from the
U.S. Constitution, such as McCa-
rthy's complaint that he has been
deprived of his property without
due process of law.
McCarthy confirmed that he
is trying to bring the inverse
condemnation suit back to state
court. He added that a lot of pro-
cedural maneuvering would take
place before anything happens in
this case.

Babysitter arrested
Amanda Brumfield of
Ocoee was arrested on new
charges June 24 after a grand
jury indicted her on first-de-
gree murder charges for the
unlawful killing of 1-year-old
Olivia Garcia. Brumfield, the
daughter of actor Billy Bob
Thornton, was also indicted
on two additional counts, one
count of aggravated child
abuse and one count of ag-
gravated manslaughter of a
child.
The grand jury heard the
case June 24 and returned
with a true bill. Lawson La-
mar presented the case to the
grand jury. A warrant was is-
sued for Brumfield's arrest
shortly thereafter, and she is
currently being held at the
Orange County Jail with. no


bond.

Suspect identified
in purse-snatching
The Ocoee Police Depart-
ment has identified one of the
suspects in a purse-snatching
incident that occurred in the
Wal-Mart SuperCenter on
West Colonial Drive on June
14 at 11:20 p.m. A 47-year-
old was returning to her car
when the suspect grabbed her
purse, jumped into a black car
and fled. The victim was not
injured.
Police allege that Cynthia
Teague, 21, is the person re-
sponsible for stealing the vic-
tim's purse. In addition, Kis-
simmee police have a warrant
for Teague's arrest after she
was identified in similar in-
cidents in that city.
According to Ocoee po-
lice, a similar incident that
occurred in Ocoee in the
same Wal-Mart parking lot
on June 10 at 10:46 p.m. is
also being investigated. In
that incident, a mother was
putting her children in her
vehicle when a black female
ran past, stealing the victim's
purse. This suspect also fled
in a black car, and the victim
was not injured.
Anyone with information
about these cases is asked
to call Detective Joseph Ro-
driquez of the Ocoee Police
Department at 407-905-3160,
Ext. 3351.

SNEW PATIENT SPECIAL,


The School Board of Orange
County has passed a resolution
to encourage parents to have
their children's vision tested
prior to the start of the 2009-10
school year. Although schools
screen students with the basic
Snelling test for 20/20 vision at
a distance, this typically detects
only five percent of all vision
problems.
Because vision can change
frequently, a child should re-
ceive an eye examination at
least once every two years (or
more often if specific problems
exist).
Working with community
partners, the district will offer
vision screenings at several
back-to-school events to be an-
nounced at a later date.
School Board Member Vicky
Bell said she brought the reso-
lution to the board because de-
tecting vision problems early
can make a difference in future
success in school, work and
life. The vote was held during
the board's regular meeting June
23.
In other business at that meet-
ing, Board Member Kat Gordon
requested that the full board vote
on each of the proposed recom-
mendations brought forth by

the Transportation Task Force
(TTF). Both TTF recommenda-
tions and the staff responses to
them were reviewed at the May
18 work session.
The following recommen-
dations were approved by the
school board and are attainable
or already in progress:
* Assigning a social worker to
the Transportation Department
to ensure that special-case trans-
portation needs are met most ef-
ficiently and economically.

three fueling stations with bus
parking in West Orange, Apopka
and East Orange.
* Centralizing purchase, con-
trol and maintenance of white
fleet vehicles.
* Facilitating a three-day,
onsite training session for bus
routing staff.
* Dedicating personnel to
maintaining a district map.
The board rejected the follow-
ing recommendations:
* Appointing a citizen com-
mittee to review decisions re-
garding transportation of stu-
dents with disabilities.
* Asking the Florida Legisla-
tureto allow part-time earnings
from school systems while un-
employed.


* Petitioning the Florida Leg-
islature to exempt public school
transportation from state sales
tax on fuel.
* Eliminating transportation
services for special programs.
* Appointing a task force to
facilitate alternative transporta-
tion methods for savings.
The following recommenda-
tions require further study or
board discussion:
* Amending the student code
of conduct to specifically ad-
dress behavior on the bus and
consequences to inappropriate
acts.
* Increasing utilization of
hourly bus drivers to decrease
personnel costs.
* Requiring Pupil Assignment
to look at all school zones and
verifying that students currently
being bused to schools are not
within walking zones.
The public is encouraged to
attend School Board meetings,
which are held in the School
Board Meeting Room of the
Educational Leadership Center,
445 W. Amelia St., Orlando. The
board normally meets on the
second and fourth Tuesday of
the month at 5:30 p.m. For more

Opinion


America's revolutionary Charter of Freedom,
the Declaration of Independence, is a document
upon which our nation's founding principles
were established. The Declaration of Indepen-
dence set the course for our nation on a journey
of freedom, which also led this historic docu-
ment on its own journey. Did you know...
* who authored the Declaration of Indepen-
dence? Thomas Jefferson wrote the first draft
of the Declaration of Independence, which
was then edited by John Adams and Benjamin
Franklin. Jefferson took their edits and incorpo-
rated them into what would become the version
finally adopted.
* Independence Day Should Have Been July
2? July 2, 1776, is the day that the Continental
Congress actually voted for independence. John
Adams, in his writings, even noted that July 2
would be remembered in the annals of Ameri-
can history and would be marked with fireworks
and celebrations. The written Declaration of
Independence was dated July 4 but wasn't ac-
tually signed until Aug. 2. Fifty-six delegates
eventually signed the document, although all
were not present on that day in August.
* who signed and in what order? John Han-
cock signed first, with a large hand right in the
middle because he was the president of the Con-
gress. The others signed by state delegation,
beginning in the upper right in one column, and
then proceeding in five other columns, arranged
from the northernmost state (New Hampshire)
to the southernmost (Georgia).
* who signed last? It is believed Thomas
McKean of Delaware was the last person to
sign. When Congress authorized the printing
of an official copy with the names attached
in January 1777, McKean's name was not in-
cluded. He signed after that date, or the printer
made a mistake by omitting him.
On the road again - The Declaration of In-
dependence spent many years on the road. After
the signing ceremony .on Aug. 2, it was most

likely filed in Philadelphia. On Dec. 12, threat-
ened by the British, Congress adjourned and
reconvened eight days later in Baltimore, Md.,
where the document remained until its return to
Philadelphia in March of 1777. In the years to
follow, it traveled widely with the Continental
Congress throughout the Northeast, then mov-
ing to Washington, D.C., in 1800.
In 1814, again threatened by war, it was
moved to an unused gristmill in Virginia for
protection. On Aug. 24, as the British burned
the White House, it was moved to Leesburg,
Va., until September, when it returned to the
nation's capital. With the exception of a trip
to Philadelphia for the Centennial and to Fort
Knox during World War II, it has remained there
ever since.
If by land or by sea - The document has also
experienced many modes of travel. Initially,
like other parchment documents of the time,
the Declaration was probably stored in a rolled
format. Each time the document was used, it
would have been unrolled and re-rolled. It likely
traveled by light wagon and by horseback with
the Continental Congress it its early years.
When it was first brought to Washington, it
traveled by boat, down the Delaware River and
Bay, out into the ocean, into the Chesapeake
Bay and up the Potomac to the new capital
city.
During World War II, it was moved by Pull-
man train to Louisville, Ky., and transferred
under armed guard to Fort Knox for safety and
protection.
Line of descent -Actress Reese Witherspoon
is a direct descendant of John Witherspoon, one
of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Indepen-
dence. John Witherspoon is pictured in a Barry
Faulkner mural entitled "The Declaration of
Independence," which illustrates 28 delegates
to the Continental Congress of 1776. This newly
restored mural is hanging in the Rotunda of the
National Archives.

Editor.

On June 24,1 Iwas extremely pleased to host the
first Community Leadership Forum on the Northwest
Orange Commuter Rail also known as the "Orange
Blossom Express Rail" Initiative. The Orange Blos-
som Express Rail wouldrun from downtown Orlando
to Tavares and would provide a public transportation
alternative to driving on U.S. Highway 441. Cur-
rently, passenger trains are being utilized for dinner
and transportation to and from Magic games, making
this transportation altemative a relatively easy upgrade
to commuter rail.
We hosted over 100 people who were wanted to
show their support forthis project Several city, county,
state and federal offices were in attendance as well, and
I'd like to express my appreciation to my colleagues
in the Florida House who attended, Rep. Stephen Pre-
court, Rep. Alan Hays and Rep. Dorothy Hukill. I'd
also like to thank Ms. Maggie DeVane of Congress-
woman Kosmas, Ms. Debra Booth of Congressman
Grayson's office, Ms. Carla Bell Johnson of Orange
County, Mount Dora City Council Member Michael
Tedder, City Manager of Eustis Paul Berg and City
Commissioner of Eustis William Ferree. Thanks to all
who attended; it was greatly appreciated!
The panel forum was the highlight of the evening,


with Mr. Jay Marsh of Lynx, Mr. Ben Biscane of Flor-
ida Central Rail, The Honorable Stephen Precourt
of the Florida House, Mr. Harry Barley of Orlando
MetroPlan, Mr. TJ. Fish of the Lake-Sumter Metto-
Plan and Ms. Noranne Downs, District 5 secretary for
Florida Department of Transportation.
Some important points were brought up during
the panel, including the notion that the last feasibil-
ity study conducted on this project was in 2001, and
since then, it is safe to say that our communities have
certainly grown and changed for the better. For ex-
ample, in 2001, Lake County did not have a transit
system similar to our Lynx here in Orange County.
Today they do. These are important considerations that
must be identified in order to ensure that this project
moves forward.
It is crucial that we build on the momentum of last
night's success to continue this dialogue on this trans-
portation and economic development opportunity. If
you are interested in learning more about this initia-
tive, please contact my office for more information
at 407-884-2023.

National Convention of the Blind at Rosen Centre


More than 2,000 blind and
visually impaired individuals
will gather at the Rosen Centre
Hotel on July 3-11 for the 48th
Annual National Convention
of the American Council of the
Blind (ACB).
According to the Orlando and
Orange County Convention and
Visitors Bureau, an estimated
$2,960,300 will be injected into
the greater Orlando economy
thanks to the ACB convention-
eers.
Mitch Pomerantz, president of
the ACB, invites anyone who is
blind or with low vision, is los-
ing his or her eyesight or has a
friend or family member who is
experiencing vision loss to come
to the Rosen Centre during the
national convention and find out
what the group has to offer.
"This ACB convention will
be our largest and busiest ever,"
said Pomerantz.
Among the many attractions,
there will be a large trade show
in which visitors can see state-
of-the-art devices designed to
make life easier for blind and
low-vision people.


The exhibit area will feature a
wide variety of products, includ-
ing mobility devices, talking
watches and clocks and special
computer equipment that trans-
lates print books and magazines
into Braille or artificial speech.
"Throughout the week, con-
vention attendees will partici-
pate in a variety of meetings
and seminars offering the most
up-to-date information on topics
ranging from the latest technolo-
gy to assist blind and low-vision
people to sessions on career and
employment opportunities," said
Carla Ruschival, chair of the
ACB's planning committee.
"Our convention provides
blind and visually impaired
people with a chance to see
the latest technology, become
informed on current legisla-
tion that affects their lives and
keeps them abreast of the imple-
mentation of programs for their
benefit," said Melanie Brunson,
ACB's executive director. "Re-
cent court rulings requiring the
federal government to make our
paper-money accessible to blind
and low-vision people will be


discussed. Also, the problem
posed by hybrid automobiles
not making any sound that
blind people can hear will be
discussed."
"The convention gives people
an opportunity to share ideas and
strategies which enhance their
quality of life," said Oral Miller,
an ACB board member.
Convention sessions and the
exhibit area are open to the gen-
eral public for a small registra-
tion fee.
"Local Orlando residents will
see several men and women
carrying canes or accompanied
by guide dogs touring various
regional attractions," said Dr.
Ron Milliman, chair of the ACB
public relations committee. "Or-
lando has much to offer, and it
is an especially friendly city for
blind and low-vision individuals
to visit."
Formed in 1961, the ACB is
one of the largest organizations
of blind people in the world with
more than 70 state and special
interest affiliates and a nation-
wide network of chapters and
members spanning the globe.


Enjoying the IAAO meeting are (I-r) Sandra Chandler, Davida Heeder, Peggy Segarra,
Jennifer Singh, Sandra Diaz and Ann Hill.

July. The month for family,
backyard fun & BBQ..
And the perfect time to make life a picnic with natural gas.
Natural gas grills have no tanks to fill, no ashes to clean-and
freedom from charcoal couldn't taste better! And with the
soft, glowing ambience of outdoor lights and fireplaces, your
patio may get more oohss" and "aahs" than the fireworks.

After the Finale...
And all year-round, natural gas provides the most efficient
water heating, precision cooking, clothes drying and climate
control. Clean and domestic, it helps reduce both pollution
and dependence on foreign oil, keeping patriotism alive well
past the fourth.

Parsons School
of Dance holds
annual recital
Review by Gail Parker
Elizabeth Parsons School of
Dance in Windermere held its
28th annual spring performance
June 7 at the Bob Carr Perform-
ing Arts Center.
This year's program was a
Hollywood revue titled "Lights,
Camera, Dance."
The recital opened with "Hoo-
ray for Hollywood," a number
featuring fascinating legwork
worthy of the Rockettes. It in-
cluded a variety of dance forms
such as sultry tap numbers,
strong and detailed ballet, ac-
robatic and jazz pieces that in-
volved a weave of motion and
color. Modern dance and hip-
hop were also featured.
Each and every time I see
the student revues, I am always
amazed at the professional qual-
ity of the Parsons' performance
from the venue to the highly
polished sets, costumes, props
and intricate routines of the
students.
In addition, I am struck by the
cleverness of the choreographers
and their unusual and innovative
use of props.
The finale was a spectacular
ending to this thoroughly enjoy-
able and classic performance.,
It again emphasized the pool
of talent embodied in both the
faculty and students.
Even the most average student
can improve technically through
the dance school's classes, and
the staff is a magnet for top tal-
ent. The annual recital is a rea-
son why this school has been a
mainstay in Windermere for 28
years.

Dining


Talking with

a 4-star chef

By Mary Anne Swickerath

When Levy Restaurants de-
cided to make over the Porto-
bello Yacht Club at the Down-
town Disney into as authentic
an Italian trattoria as possible,
the company chose the four-star
chef from Chicago's Spiaggia,
Tony Mantuano, as its consul-
tant. It turned out to be a good
decision.
The reincarnated Portobello
has been receiving impressive
reviews from restaurant critics
since its recent grand reopening
with a new menu, a new interior
and a new - decidedly Italian
- attitude.
During Chef Mantuano's stay
in West Orange County in con-
nection with the reopening of
Portobello, I had the chance to
meet and speak with him about
a variety of food (specifically
Italian) topics.

What was your influence,
contribution to Portobello's
new menu?
"We wanted to revamp the
restaurant, both the interior
and the menu," said Chef Man-
tuano, who was chosen as the
best chef in the Midwest by
the James Beard Foundation
in 2005.
The plan was, he explained,
to give Portobello the ambience
of a real countryside caf6, with
real Italian ingredients and fla-
vors, but with a contemporary
twist "to reflect what's going
on in Italy today."
Portobello's menu offers
full meals or antipasti choices
to pair with a glass of wine. A
diner can eat several courses or
just'cheese and wine.
He said he loved working
with Portobello's executive
chef, Steven Richard. "We
had a great time together,"
he said. "We've become good
friends."

What are the challenges of
a fine-dining restaurant in
this economy? Do you think
Italian restaurants fare bet-
ter than others?
"At Spiaggia we've just had
our best May ever in 25 years,"
'he said. "People want a sure
thing. They want to make sure
their money is well spent. It's
a sign of trust."
Of course, it didn't hurt that
Barack and Michelle Obama
were regular costumers until
they moved from Chicago to
Washington. And he added that
Italian food is comforting when
times are tough.

How do you balance cre-
ativity and innovation with
tradition in Italian cooking?
Is there a conflict between au-
thenticity and innovation?
"I think if you take the time
to understand traditional Italian
pasta, if you learn the right way
to do it, you will respect the
tradition," he explained.
As an example, he said that
carbonara is a Roman dish
that is made with cured pork


By Mary Anne Swickerath

Local Mexican
restaurants honored
The Consulate of Mexico and
the Mexican Restaurant Asso-
ciation recently honored local
restaurants as the best examples
on Mexican cuisine in Central
Florida.
Local honorees were San An-
gel Inn at Disney's Epcot, Ta-
queria Los Prios at. 1 W. Silver
Star Road, La Perla Deli at 608
Dillard St. and Taquitos Jalisco
at 2417 S. Dillard St. in Winter
Garden and 2471 S. Hiawassee
Road in MetroWest.

Favorite pizza place?
The results of our readers'
choice award for best West
Orange County pizza will be
announced next week.

New produce store
Featuring farmer's market
abundance, Gardner's Pro-
duce has opened shop at 129 W.
Plant St. in downtown Winter
Garden. You won't have to wait
until Saturdays to buy summer
fruits and vegetables.

ecutive pastry chef at Disney's

chair of the American Culinary

Committee. She is one of 13

called guanciale. It is not made
with bacon or pancetta, and it
doesn't have any cream in it.
But you can add fresh peas or
asparagus in season, and that
adds another level of flavor
and texture without making
the dish inauthentic.

How did you begin your
career?
"I grew up in an Italian fam-
ily [north of. Chicago]. My
grandmother and grandfather
were from Southern Italy and
ran a mom and pop grocery,"
he said. "My grandmother was
a great cook."
Besides his own family in-
fluence, Mantuano spent a year
studying in Italy, working in
highly rated restaurants near
Milan.

Do you have to study in
Italy to be an authentic Ital-
ian chef?
"I think you need to be able
to absorb that culture," he said.
"Too many Italian restaurants
in the U.S. have an American
sensibility. Everything has to
be Italian down to the espresso.
It's got to be the whole pack-
age. A great restaurant has a
culture behind it, whether it's
Italian or Asian."

What is the basis of Ital-
ian cooking? What makes it
Italian?
"Simplicity," he said, "and
taking the time to find the right
ingredients."

What is your favorite in-
gredient?
"Really great extra-virgin
olive oil, as fresh as possible,"

Use it as flavoring."


Buffalo Chicken Cornbread with Blue Cheese Salad

scores a win at 2009 National Cornbread Cook-Off


Sonya Goergen of Moorhead,
Minn., accepted the cast-iron
skillet crown as the grand-prize
winner of the 2009 National
Cornbread Cook-Off with her
Buffalo Chicken Cornbread
with Blue Cheese Salad recipe.
The National Cornbread Cook-
Off is held in conjunction with
the National Cornbread Festival
in South Pittsburg, Tenn., and
is sponsored by Martha White
and Lodge Cast Iron.
Sonya took her inspiration
from a popular appetizer to
create this year's grand prize-
winning recipe - Buffalo
Chicken Cornbread with Blue
Cheese Salad.
Just like buffalo hot wings, a
tried-and-true staple of cookouts
and sporting events, Sonya's
recipe married the spiciness of
the chicken with the coolness
of blue cheese dressing.
She translated that combi-
nation into her winning recipe
by adding boneless buffalo
wings to cheesy cornbread and
topping it with a salad that in-
cluded celery, lettuce and blue
cheese dressing.
Her original main dish recipe
earned the top prize of $5,000, a
30-inch FiveStar stainless-steel
gas range from Brown Stove
Works Inc. of Cleveland, Tenn.,
and special gifts from Martha
White and Lodge Cast Iron.

a peaceful and safe community, said community activist Charlie Mae Wilder. The group

other active police officers; Winter Garden City Commissioner Harold Bouler, photogra-
pher Paul Brooks and WOCAC President Wilder.

MLB Draft takes 4 former


Windermere Little Leaguers


In the 2009 Major League
Baseball First-Year Player's
Draft, four athletes who
played their developmental
years in Windermere Little
League were drafted. Wind-
ermere Little League has seen
seven former players drafted
in the last two seasons.
This year, Olympia High
senior Jabari Henry was
chosen by the Texas Rang-
ers in the 39th round. Two
other former Olympia play-
ers were drafted as well. Jeff
Walters, a 2007 graduate, was
chosen in the 17th round by


the Baltimore Orioles. This'
marked the fourth year in a
row Walters has been drafted.
Chadd Hartman, a 2005 OHS
graduate, was selected again
this year in the 43rd round
by the San Diego Padres.
Hartman was drafted out
of high school but chose to
attend college and play for
UCE The fourth WLL player
drafted this year was Bobby
Rauh, who played for Day-
tona Beach Community Col-
lege this year and was a 2006
graduate of Edgewater High
School.


Last year, three former
WLL players were drafted
- Ben McMahon in the 30th
round by the New York Yan-
kees, Brad Miller in the 39th
round by the Texas Rangers
and Nick Maronde in the
43rd round by the Oakland
A's.
McMahon and Maronde
just finished their freshman
seasons at the University of
Florida, while Miller just
completed his at Clemson
University. All three will be
eligible for the draft again in
2011.


Pictured following
the game are long-
time friends Emily
Peterson (left) of the
Heatwave and Lady
Hawk Brianna Jenkins.


Miller to play for Team USA


Brad Miller of Windermere
was invited to try out for Team
USA's National Collegiate
Team for baseball. Forty-one
college players were invited,
and on June 24, Miller found
himself among the 22 players
selected to the final roster.
International competition
began June 28 vs. Canada,
and the team is set to face
several other national teams,
including Japan, Guatemala,
Germany, China and the Ba-
hamas.
Miller, who played high


school baseball at Olympia
High School, just completed
his freshman season as the
starting shortstop at Clemson
University. He was one of just
a dozen freshman invited to
the tryouts.
This spring at Clemson,
Miller was one of only three
players to start every game.
and the first freshman to start
every game since 2005. He set
the Clemson freshman record
for walks in a season with 53,
which is the fifth-highest
number-of walks per season


in Clemson history.
This put Miller at second
in the Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence (ACC) in walks. Miller
led Clemson in steals with 16,
which was good enough to
place him eighth in the ACC.
He also led ACC shortstops in
assists and double plays.
Miller was highlighted
twice this season on ESPN's!
Top Ten Plays of the Day for
two of his plays in the field.
He is the son of Steve
and Cheryl Miller of Wind-
ermere.

Winter Garden fencers ranked No. 2 in state


Participants of the Montverde Equestrian Camp gather with Kasey Kesselring, Mont-
verde Academy headmaster, and the school's equestrian staff.


Students from the Winter
Garden Fencing Academy
grabbed five medals, includ-
ing two gold, at the Sunshine
State Games held recently in
Lakeland. Along with several
top-eight finishes, Winter Gar-
den earned enough club points
to capture the state's No. 2
ranking.
During the two-day tourna-
ment that drew fencers from
across the state, Winter Gar-
den led the pack at the close of
events on Saturday. Its fencers
scored an impressive 47 points


to take a 13-point lead over the
nearest competition. Near the
tournament's finish on Sunday,
the school had increased its
lead to 55. The Tampa Fencing
Academy, however, zoomed
ahead by a single point and
carried the trophy home.
"We congratulate Tampa on
its victory," said Coach Jenni-
fer Rawlings. "Tampa Fencing
Academy has been around for
almost 20 years and special-
izes in the epee discipline."
Winter Garden Coach Jason
Seachrist added: "Of course,


Tampa had to accrue points
in two weapons to beat us,
whereas we compete solely
in foil."
During the event, Seachrist
was also observed by fencer
and USFA official Mary Ma-
hon, who awarded him a higher
referee rating.
Winter Garden Fencing
Academy is owned and operat-
ed in downtown Winter Garden
by Rawlings and Seachrist.
For more information, visit
www.wgfencingacademy.
com.


Montverde Academy hosts equestrian camp -l


Montverde Academy
Equestrian Camp hosted two
camps this year - a day camp
for riders 11-and-under and a
camp for riders 12-17.
The first camp was for 14
riders who enjoyed riding the
Tennessee Walking Horses
at the Montverde Equestrian
Center, in addition to cooling
off at the school's pool.
The group was treated to
an evening at the Arabian
Knights dinner show as its


final event. The following
week, Montverde Academy
Equestrian Camp hosted 22
riders consisting of campers
from many states, including
New Jersey, Tennessee and
Georgia.
The camp participants held
an affinity for the Tennessee
Walking Horse and came to
the camp to reap the benefits
of the certified instructors,
trainers and judges who are
considered to be among the


best in the Walking Horse
Industry. The riders have
won championships at the
industry's most prestigious
showcases, the National Cel-
ebration and the International
Championships.
The riders also enjoyed a
variety of activities while at
camp, including visits to area
theme parks. At the conclusion
of camp, 'a horse show was
held for the riders to show off
their new equestrian skills.


Looking back on Olympia High spring sports


Olympia High enjoyed an-
other successful year in the
athletic arena. The Titans
finished fourth in the Metro
Conference All-Sports Award
and once again finished in the
top 10 in the FHSAA Sunshine
Dodge Cup standings in Class
6A.
The accomplishment reflects
the combined efforts of more
than 1,000 student-athletes in
52 sports.
During the 2008-09 school
year, Olympia saw 10 district
championships, six district
runner-up finishes, two region-
al championships, one regional
runner-up and one state runner-
up. The Titan boys basketball,
boys soccer and baseball teams
were all nationally ranked at
some point during their sea-
son.
Individual accomplishments
were impressive with 36 stu-
dent-athletes earning All-
Metro First-Team honors and
seven earning both Academic
and Athletic All-First-Team
selections. Olympia boasted
six all-state athletes, four Or-
lando Sentinel Players of the
Week recipients, one First-
Team All-American and two
Central Florida Players of the
Year. The Olympia coaching
staff saw three Metro Confer-
ence Coach of the Year win-
ners - Mark Griseck (boys
basketball), Kevin McElveen
(boys golf) and Fraser Allan
(boys soccer), who was also
named FACA State Coach of
the Year.
The spring season saw nu-
merous team and individual
records shattered.
Olympia High's varsity
baseball team had its best sea-
son to date by compiling a 21-4
regular-season record and win-
ning the nationally acclaimed
Baseball Classic Tournament
for the second time in three
years. Head Coach Randy
O'Neal and his staff did anoth-
er strong job to place fourth in
a difficult Metro Conference.
The Titan baseball team had
two players - Jabari Henry
(outfield) and Chris Taladay
(catcher) receive All-Metro
First-Team honors. Henry was
selected to play in the Florida
Athletic Coaches Associa-
tion (FACA) All-Star game in
Sebring and was selected ear-
lier this month in the Major
League Baseball Draft by the
Texas Rangers. Senior pitcher
Pat Lothrop set a school record
for wins with a 7-1 record.
The junior varsity baseball
team and Coach Ernie Ange-
lestro were very proud of the
season's accomplishments and
are looking to continue the
success in the baseball pro-
gram. The underclass players
will be competing in numerous
summer leagues to prepare for
next season.
The high school sports sea-
son came to a close last month
with the boys volleyball team
falling in the district cham-
pionship game to the state's
No. 1-ranked team, Timber
Creek.
The varsity and junior var-
sity football teams concluded
spring practice with.a victory
over Volusia County power
Spruce Creek High. The J.V.
squad played the first quarter
and jumped out to a 22-0 lead.
The varsity team took over to
play the next three quarters
and added to the scoring with
a 57-7 final.
Highly recruited quarterback
Trevor Siemian looked sharp


in the pocket, and receivers
Rashad Lawrence and Henry
Eaddy had big games. Running
backs Maurice Turrell and La-
travius Manual controlled the
ground game, and the defense
was led by Deon Green at
end, Corrian Hamilton in the
secondary and Donny Bar-
tolomucci and Joey Alarie at
linebackers. Both Siemian
and Lawrence have given oral
commitments to Northwestern
University.
The varsity softball team
struggled this season, win-
ning only one game. The fu-
ture, however, looks promis-
ing as the team only graduated
three seniors and is expecting
a plethora of young talent next
year. Head Coach Ron Jesso,
who decided to step down after
two seasons, thanked the girls
for their hard work this year.
Eight-year Assistant Coach
Peggy Schwartz will take over
the helm and is excited about
getting the girls involved in
summer leagues and camps.
The junior varsity girls la-
crosse team (16-4) completed
another successful season by
winning its second-straight
district title. First-year Head
Coach Regina Hamilton and
the girls played outstand-
ing this year, and Hamilton
is excited about the future of
the program for the years to
come.
Varsity Head Coach Brooke
Newman led the charge by de-
fending the Metro Champion-
ship with a 10-0 record. Senior
Carly Garrison was selected as
an All-American, First-Team
All-Metro and All-District and
surpassed the 200-point total to
finish as the school's all-time
leader.
Teammates Karley White
and Brianne Ferone also earned
All-Metro First-Team honors,
while Second-Team All-Metro
selections went to Jessie Erick-
son, Katy Petrisin and Rachael
Slocum. Seniors Garrison, Er-
ickson and Alana Cato were
selected to play in the Senior
All-Star game. Coach New-
man and Garrison were set
to participate in the national
tournament senior division in
Baltimore this summer.
The boys lacrosse team
came up one win shy of the
district title this spring. The
Titans were led by Head
Coach Brett Mulligan, along
with two First-Team All-Metro
players: seniors Jim Arnold on
defense and Chase Jacobs at
attack. Eric Goss earned Sec-
ond-Team honors, and Donny
Bartolomucci received an hon-
orable mention. The J.V. team
and first-year Coach Kristian
Lattig reflect on their spring
as a learning experience and
are excited about the 2010
season.
The boys weightlifting
team and coaches Bob Head
and Mike White led the Titan
lifters to a 3-0 regular-season
record. Olympia brought home
a victory for the first time in
school history against cross-
town rival Dr. Phillips. Jona-
than West finished second in
the Metro Conference, and
Derrick McClain finished fifth.
For the second-straight year,
West advanced to the state
tournament, where he placed
ninth.
The girls flag football team
entered its inaugural season
with high hopes and a talent-
ed young crop of girls. Varsity
Head Coach Kevin McElveen
and the Lady Titans were


competitive in their first cam-
paign. The team scored their
first victory in school history
vs. Gateway on April 20. Next
year looks to be exciting as the
team graduates from a man-
datory first-year independent
division to district play where
it will be eligible to make the
state playoffs. Head J.V. Coach
Tony Thomas did an outstand-
ing job with the new talent and
is looking forward to next sea-
son.
The boys (13-1) and girls
(12-2) tennis teams once
again finished with strong
showings as both teams won
the district title behind the
leadership of head coaches
John Cappabianca (boys) and
Chris Mills (girls) and strong
individual play in singles and
doubles. John Cappabianca Jr.
and Sam Wood were district
champs in doubles and were
both named to the All-Metro
First Team. The duo advanced
to the state tournament in dou-
bles play. The girls Were led by
juniors Lindsey Jackson and
Morgan Murray. Both were
named to the All-Metro First
Team.
The boy's volleyball team
finished another exciting year,
compiling an 18-3 record and
losing a close match in the
district final to eventual state
champion Timber Creek. The
Titans finished second in the
Metro standings and were
again led by First-Team All-
Metro and two-time Central
Florida Player of the Year lan
Karbiener, who finished his
career holding game, season
and career records in almost
every category.
Junior Travis Helton also
was selected to the All-Metro
First Team and set numerous
records as a setter. First-year
Head Coach Mitch Sadowsky
enjoyed watching one of the
most talented players ever to
play in Central Florida. The
J.V. team finished strong and
looks forward to next season.
Coach Croy Bosch's squad was
led by co-captains Adam Kar-
biener and Josh Fieldman.
The boys and girls track
teams, led by first-year head
coaches Cleo Tyson (boys) and
Stacey Williams (girls), along
with Assistant Coach Delrita
Bridgette, looked to continue
the strong tradition built in
track and field at Olympia.
The girls were led by senior
and Olympia Female Athlete
of the Year Jerica Maness. She
was voted team MVP and holds
school records in the 400m and
800m and she ran the first leg
on the 4x800 relay team.
The boys were led by sprint-
er Latravius Manuel and the
4x800 relay team of Rudy
Crowder, Grayson Moore,
Daniel Day and Roberto
Arias. Junior pole-vaulter Ken-
dall Schafers will look next
year to break the school record
at 12 feet, six inches. Field
Coach Tim Swanigan said he
was pleased with the showing
of the shot putters and discus
athletes. Crowder was on the
brink of setting a school record
of 42 feet, four inches in the
triple jump.
And finally, the boys and
girls' water polo teams con-
cluded another strong season,
both finishing fifth in a tough
Metro Conference. First-year
Head Coach Stephanie Pos-
sell enjoyed the hard work
and dedication of her student-
athletes this season and looks
forward to next year.


WGFA students (I-r) Spenser Nampon (silver), Matthew Breen (gold) and Devyn Grover
(bronze) earned medals at the Sunshine State Game.

school year and recognize two,
athletes with its most presti-
gious award.
The Lion Cup is given an-
nually to the top male and fe-

The pair had collected acco-
lades all year and this was the
final stamp on their success.

orable mention in football and
his team's MVP. Also starring
in basketball, he was selected as
a member of the Class 1A, Dis-
trict 7 Senior All-Starteam.
Richards was a team MVP in
volleyball, basketball and soft-
ball. She also earned the Class
1A, District 7 MVP award for
girls basketball.
"These two students honored
Foundation Academy in every
way with their hard work on
and off the court," said Chris
Bogen, Foundation Academy

Cup trophies as Foundation Academy's top male and fe-
male athlete.

Helping others
Despite the impending
decrease in school bud-
gets for next year, students
at Ocoee Elementary are
reaching out to more needy
students in the area and
worldwide.
"Other kids need these
supplies more than us,"
said third-grader Brianna
Beyer.
The students in Ms.
Sabat's and Mrs. Leon-
ard's third-grade classes
at Ocoee Elementary are
organizing a schoolwide
clean-out in association
with their participation in


Give a Kid a Backpack
campaign.
"Give a Kid a Backpack is
a campaign to help needy
kids get supplies they need
for school. We are par-
ticipating by gathering up
things like crayons, pencils
and backpacks," said stu-
dent Samantha Tyler.
Students have been
working tirelessly to de-
sign collection boxes,
hang posters and compose
songs, poems and skits to
advertise on the school's
morning news program.
Delaney Lowe explained
the project further: "It is im-


portant for kids everywhere
to get a good education with
the appropriate utensils."
Danielle Serrano said,
"We might have a miracle."
The whole school is
participating in the collec-
tion, bringing in items from
home and collecting items
in the classrooms. In addi-
tion to helping students in
need, this project supports
the recycling project run by
Ocoee's fifth-graders.
According to third-grader
Jake Thomas, the Give
a Kid a Backpack project
"supports the three R's -
reduce, reuse and recycle."

I Peter 1:24-25; "For all flesh is as grass, and all the
glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass with-
ereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: but the word
of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word
which by the gospel is preached unto you. When this
mortal life is passed, God will still be living."
God asked Job a question: Job38:4 "When wast
thou when I laid the foundation of the earth? Declare,
if thou hast understanding.
"When David fought the Philistine giant Goliath,
he saith to Goliath, I Samuel 17:45; "Thou comest to

the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast de-
fled.

the Philistine said unto David, am I a dog, that thou
comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed
David by his gods."The last three words of that verse,

False gods cannot sustain you in this life, neither can
they give you eternal life.
God says in Isaiah 1:18; "Come now, and let us
(you and God) reason together. saith the Lord: thou
your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
thou they be red like crimson, they shall be as
wool." Nahum 1:7, "The Lord is good, a strong hold
