Fines of $125 are
now being issued
for running red
lights at the corner
of West Colonial
Drive and Maguire
Road in Ocoee.

By Mary Anne Swickerath

In the first two weeks after
the city of Ocoee had red-light
cameras installed at the corer
of West Colonial Drive and
Maguire Road on July 8, the
cameras captured hundreds
of violations on tape and in
photographs. At their regular
meeting last week, the mayor
and city commissioners ap-
proved a resolution directing
City Manager Rob Frank to
begin enforcing fines for those
cited for running red lights at
this intersection. Therefore,
anyone caught in the act will
receive a $125 citation, in-
stead of the warnings that
were sent out during the two-
week warning period
One piece of video shown


to the elected officials by the
police at this meeting was of a
delivery truck that turned left
onto West Colonial Drive 15-
20 seconds after the light had
turned red.
They also learned that the
city of Apopka cut violations
from more than 400 a month to
under 10 a month after install-
ing red-light cameras at State
Road 441 and Main Street.
The city will split the fines
with the company in Arizona
that installed the cameras,
but Mayor Scott Vandergrift
pointed out that the cameras
are about protecting lives,
not making money, especially
since this intersection is the
most dangerous in the city,
with seven fatalities in the last
few years.
City Manager Frank told the
commission the city is plan-
ning on adding the cameras
to other intersections and will
have signage alerting motor-
ists of their locations.
In a comment related to
traffic concerns, Mayor Van-
dergrift said, "One of the big-
gest complaint we have from
citizens is speeding through


neighborhoods."
He added that the Police
Department will have video
surveillance in neighborhoods
in the near future to address
this concern.
On another matter, the com-
mission formally approved a
resolution that will allow resi-
dents of Rose Hill Phases 2
and 3 near the West Oaks Mall
to cast their votes for annexa-
tion into the city of Ocoee. The
referendum will be held Sept
15 as a mail-ballot election. If
approved, this annexation will
bring 244 single-family homes
into the city.
Commissioner Rusty John-
son told the Rose Hill resi-
dents present at the meeting
that he welcomed them into
Ocoee and believed they will
be happy with the city ser-
vices, such as those provided
by the police and fire depart-
ments.
In other business, the elect-
ed officials:

rector Steve Krug to spend up
to $60,000 for a new roof and

Winter Garden, Ocoee police

to host National Night Out


By Mary Anne Swickerath
Each August, National
Night Out (NNO) is held in
more than 10,000 communi-
ties all across the U.S., in-
cluding Ocoee and Winter
Garden. Both the Ocoee and
Winter Garden police depart-
ments are sponsoring special
crime- and drug-prevention
events next week, Tuesday,
Aug. 4.
In Ocoee, the event will
be held at Central Park on
Flewelling Avenue from 6-8


p.m. The police will con-
duct K-9 demonstrations and
display its new motorcycle
units. The Ocoee Police Ex-
plorer Post 2909 will have a
drug-prevention display and
conduct child fingerprint-
ing for the child's parents'
records, and the Ocoee Fire
Department will bring trucks
for children to explore.
Ocoee police will also visit
neighborhood NNO events or
assist in coordinating a flash-
light walk, if neighborhood
representatives call Lt. Ste-


phen McCosker at 407-905-
3160, Ext. 3055.
In Winter Garden, Nation-
al Night Out will be held at
the Winter Garden Village at
Fowler Groves on Daniels
Road from 6-9 p.m. in the
Exchange parking lot. There
will be food and prizes for
those attending and informa-
tion displayed on crime- and
drug-prevention.
NNO is sponsored by the
National Association of Town
Watch, with Target as the na-
tional corporate sponsor.


Ocoee sets tentative millage rate, budget hearings


By Mary Anne Swickerath

Along with other governments, the city of
Ocoee is required to set a tentative property-tax
rate for the 2009-10 fiscal year that begins Oct.
1. At last week's City Commission meeting,
the elected officials agreed to a tentative rate of
5.4974, which is the rollback rate.
This is the rate that levies the same amount
of property taxes as the previous year based on
property assessments..
City Manager Rob Frank reported to the
1 i


commission that Ocoee's assessed value de-
creased $231,277,100.
The commission can lower this proposed rate
but cannot raise it during the budget process
without notifying each property owner in the
city. The currertt millage rate is 4.8252.
The commission also set budget workshops
for Wednesday, Aug. 12, and Wednesday, Aug.
19, at 6 p.m. and budget hearings for Wednes-
day, Sept. 9, and Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 7 p.m.
All of these meetings will be televised on Chan-
nel 200 on the Bright House cable system.

Orange Chamber office last week.

State Legislature honors

Michael Waldrop with

Spirit of Service Award


Waldrop lobbied
state officials
to pass an
amendment to
exempt Floridians
from paying
property tax while
in military service
overseas.

By Mary Anne Swickerath

Michael Waldrop has another
medal to add to the Purple Heart
and Bronze Star for Valpr he
earned during his tour of duty
as an infantry captain in the
war in Afghanistan in 2006-07.
Last week at a special recep-
tion at the West Orange Cham-
ber of Commerce, Jeff Atwater,
president of the Florida Senate,
and State Sen. Andy Gardiner
presented him with the Florida
Senate Spirit of Service Award
for both his service in Afghani-
stan and his successful support
of legislation to aid the state's
military families.
While serving overseas,
Waldrop met servicemen and
women who were on multiple
tours of duty. Many of them, as
well as their families, were suf-
fering financial hardships be-
cause of these tours, some even
abandoning their homes. His
idea was to ask the State Leg-
islature to approve an amend-
ment to the State Constitution
that would exempt servicemen
and women from paying prop-
erty taxes while on duty out of
the U.S.
While on duty and after he
returned to Central Florida, he


lobbied state legislators via e-
mail to approve the amendment,
and his lobbying, supported by
Sen. Gardiner and State Rep.
Michael Homer, was a success.
Both the Senate and the House
passed the amendment, which
will be on the ballot in the No-
vember 2010 General Election.
It will require a yes vote of 60
percent to pass.
Sen. Atwater praised Wal-
drop for his initiative on the
property tax issue and for forc-
ing the state legislators to take
note.
"Rarely does an original idea
come from the legislature," he
said, adding that it is always
gratifying to see such sound
propositions as this one come
from citizens active in their
community.
During the reception, Sen.
Gardiner pointed out that Wal-
drop, a member of the West
Orange Chamber Board of Di-
rectors, will have to continue
to work to have this amend-
ment passed by voters and that
he will need the support of the
Chamber and the community
to get this done.
Waldrop, who is vice presi-
dent of construction for Mc-
Cree General Contractors and
Architects Inc., thanked the
state legislators for the Spirit
of Service Award and for ap-
proving the amendment, and
he spoke of the officer who
helped bring him to safety after
he was injured, an officer who
was on one of many of his tours
of duty.
Waldrop said he felt he had
a responsibility to try and
achieve a benefit for this offi-
cer and for all those Floridians
serving overseas.

nies on Home At Last II, the

seph and Isaac.
On his second deployment
to Iraq, during a house-to-
house search mission in the
small village ofBuquaba, SPC
Griffin, a five-year Army vet-
eran, sustained serious injuries
V4


in an IED explosion that also
seriously injured another sol-
dier and killed Marcus's K-9,
Jok.
Marcus and Andrea Griffin
were local kids who grew up
in southwest Orange County,
were high school sweethearts
and are graduates of Cypress
Creek High School. They are
currently living with Andrea's
parents at Hunter's Creek, and
here is where they wish to
make their home.
SPC Griffin has served this
country well and faithfully.

service to this country and

life.

Ocoee teen charged with murder


On July 22, Ocoee police ar-
rested John Hawthorne, 19, of
355 Maine St., Ocoee, on first-
degree murder charges in the
stabbing death of Joel David
Boner, 32.
According to police, officers
responded to the intersection of
West Colonial Drive and Blu-
ford Avenue at 6:45 a.m. on
July 22 and discovered Boner
with multiple stab wounds to
his upper body. He was trans-
ported to Orlando Regional
Medical Center, where he died
of his injuries.
Shortly after arriving on the
scene, police identified two
suspects who were taken into
custody. According to police,
Hawthorne admitted that he
had stabbed the victim after an
altercation and that he and a
friend had been riding an ATV
in the wooded area near Lake
Bennett when they came upon
a homeless camp. Police say


Boner, who was asleep inside
a tent in the camp, exited upon
hearing Hawthorne and was
told by Hawthorne to leave the
area.
Hawthorne reportedly be-
gan cutting property belong-
ing to the victim, and an ar-
gument and a fight ensued
between the two, resulting
in both falling to the ground.
Police reported that Hawthorne
said the victim was on top of
him at which time Hawthorne
reached into his pocket, pulled
out his knife and began stab-


bing the victim.
Police say Hawthorne and
his friend left the area with the
victim requesting help from
them.
Boner attempted to walk out
of the woods to the 7-Eleven
convenience store across the
street but collapsed on Bluford
Avenue:
Hawthorne's friend was not
charged with a crime.
Hawthorne made his first
court appearance on July 22,
but he was not released on
bail.

Health Central Foundation is

on a mission to help children


The Health Central Founda-
tion's mission is to provide ser-
vices that promote an awareness
of good healthcare that posi-
tively impact the West Orange
County community. With sum-
mer vacation coming to a close,
the foundation has focused its
efforts toward promoting the
health and literacy of local
children.
The Health Central Founda-
tion School Nurse Program was
created in 1995 to support this
purpose by placing registered
nurses in West Orange County
public schools. On-campus
healthcare clinics provide a
benefit beyond care for minor
illnesses or injuries, but also to
provide education on preventa-
tive healthcare and nutrition.
The School Nurse Program
placed registered nurses in 22
elementary, middle and high
schools for the 2008-2009 aca-
demic school year.


Due to the success of the
School Nurse Program, Health
Central has developed a partner-
ship with the Heart of Florida
United Way and Second Har-
vest Food Bank to provide
children with non-perishable
food at those participating pub-
lic schools. These packs of food
are available to children to pro-
mote healthy eating habits on
the weekends.
Providing food to needy
students through this program
will help accomplish the goal of
ending hunger in Central Florida
children.
Literacy is imperative for the
confidence and success of any
child. The foundation aspires
to assist in the implementation
of the Reading Plus program in
those participating schools. The
Reading Plus system provides
individualized silent reading
practice for students in second
grade and higher while develop-


ing sustained attention and word
recognition, as well as enhanc-
ing vocabulary and reading

Property-tax exemption for overseas
military personnel deserves to pass


The West Orange Chamber of
Commerce hosted a heart-warming
ceremony last week in which State
Senate President Jeff Atwater and
State Sen. Andy Gardiner presented
Michael Waldrop, vice president of
construction for McCree General
Contractors and Architects Inc., with
the prestigious Florida Senate Spirit
of Service Award.
Waldrop was sent to Afghanistan
after being called out of the U.S.
Army's inactive ready reserves. He
was wounded in the Battle of Panjwai
and awarded the Purple Heart and
Bronze Star.
Both during and after his service
in 2006-07, Waldrop lobbied Florida
legislators to approve an amendment


to the State Constitution that would
exempt servicemen and women post-
ed overseas from paying property
taxes. This initiative was a success,
winning approval from the house and
the senate. This proposed amendment
will be put on the 2010 General Elec-
tion ballot.
We believe this amendment is a fine
idea that particularly makes sense in
these difficult economic times, and
we urge citizens to support it with
their votes.
It will be a show of support for the
men and women who have had to
leave their families and their homes
to serve overseas, many of them in
the war zones of Afghanistan and
Iraq.


At the reception held at the West Orange Chamber last week: I-r, State
Horner of District 79, State Sen. Andy Gardiner, Marnie and Michael
State Senate President Jeff Atwater.

Letters to the editor

Rep. Nelson discusses legislation


Editor,
I'd like to discuss two additional pieces
of my legislation, HB 179 and HB 671.
HB 179, relating to property apprais-
ers, is a prime example of smart, efficient
government policy. Essentially, every five
years, property appraisers must physically
inspect every parcel on their tax rolls. An
employee of the property appraisers office
must travel to the location to inspect the
building. However, with a simple change
in statutes, they can now use satellite im-
agery - similar to the technology for
Google Earth - to determine if-a parcel
has changed in a way that changes its val-
ue.
This example of no-nonsense legisla-
tion will save the state of Florida approxi-
mately $50 million over five years. Such
language, while simple, has taken several
years to pass, and I am extremely pleased
that this language finally was signed into
law this year. In uncertain economic times
like this one, it is extremely important that
we as legislators look for ways for govern-
ment to be more efficient, more effective,
and that we spend every dollar as if it were
yours...after all, it is!
The second piece of legislation is HB
671, a bill relating to columbariums, a vault
for the ashes of those who have passed.
Prior to this language, people were denied
their finals wishes to be kept at their col-


lege alma mater. However, with this bill,
the public universities in the state such as
the University of Florida, Florida State and
the University of Central Florida will be
able to build and maintain a columbarium
on campus no larger than five acres to
serve as the final resting place for honored
alums and friends of the university. This
will require no additional state money but,
rather, serves as a new option for revenue
for our universities during these difficult
economic times.
In a tough budget year, legislators, as
well as constituents, expect us to work
on legislation that promoted smart fiscal
policy and government efficiency. I am es-
pecially proud of my legislation, as in ses-
sion where only 200 bills were passed, five
were mine. Please know that I share this
accomplishment with you, District 38, and
would also like thank you for your input
and support during these tough economic
times.
As we continue to move forward, we will
be looking at legislation in the same realm
of government efficiency and cost-cutting
opportunities. As always, if you have a
question about these bills or any other state
agency or issue, please do not hesitate to
contact me at 407-884-2023. It truly is an
honor to represent you.
State Rep. Bryan Nelson

As the minister of the newly founded United
Methodist Church that serves the Windermere
area, the Rev. Jim Harish has all the fervor and
diligence of a political candidate. In an effort to
increase the membership, he has made visiting
people one of his two top priorities (the other
is preaching). He starts at one end of a street,
knocks on all the doors on one side and on all
the doors on the other side coming back. He
lives in Sand Lake Hills with his wife, Mar-

Jeanne, 5.

Summerville at Ocoee changes

name, adds home visit program


Summerville at Ocoee, a
senior-living community, is
now operating under the new
name of Emeritus at Ocoee.
Summerville, which is man-
aged by Emeritus Senior Liv-
ing, chose to make this change
as a tribute to the Emeritus
corporate brand name.
"We are proud to be a mem-
ber of the Emeritus Senior
Living family," said Kevin
Colley, community relations
director. "All across the coun-
try, Emeritus is known for its
commitment to making a posi-
tive difference in the lives of
the people it serves by foster-
ing an atmosphere of family
and community among its staff
and residents.
"So naturally, we want to be
recognized as an Emeritus-af-
filiated community. We decid-
ed that adopting the Emeritus
brand name as our own shows
just how committed we are to
living the Emeritus ideals of
respect, community, teamwork
and value."
Emeritus at Ocoee, which is
located at 80 N. Clarke Road,
provides independent living,
assisted living and Alzheim-
er's care services to seniors.
The community features 85
resident apartments, includ-
ing friendship suites, studios,
deluxe studios and one- and
two- bedroom floor plans.
Homemade meals are served
restaurant-style, three times a
day, in the dining room. Other
community amenities and ser-
vices include a library, coffee
cafe, activities center, outdoor
patios, on-site therapy, sched-
uled transportation, medica-
tion management and a beauty
salon/barber shop.
Emeritus at Ocoee also an-
nounced this week that it has
launched a complimentary


home visit program - You
Don't Have to Live with Us for
Us to Help - part of Emeritus
Senior Living's Safely Some-
where program.
Officials at Emeritus at
Ocoee said they are commit-
ted to making sure that every
local senior in need finds the
combination of programs
and services that serves them
best, even if they do not live
at Emeritus at Ocoee.
"We recognize that some of
our area seniors may want to
live at home as long as they
can," said Colley. "We also
know that these seniors may
face a variety of challenges
living at home and may need
assistance identifying all
of their support service op-
tions."
As a result, Colley added,
Emeritus at Ocoee offers its
team of health care profession-
als to serve these seniors and
their families as a complimen-
tary service.
"We realize that there are
many seniors in our area going
without the vital health, social
and supportive services they
need to maintain their quality
of life at home," said Colley.
"Our Home Visits program
helps these seniors cope with
their challenges and provides a
host of resources to help them
stay healthy and connected to
the community."
A few of the services that
Emeritus at Ocoee will be of-
fering to local seniors will in-
clude nurse evaluations, sup-
port system checks, referrals
to other area providers, post-
visit follow-ups and access
to Emeritus' family lending
library and senior safety tips.

Emeritus at Ocoee, call 407-

People always ask how it got that name.
In the 1920s, this was a thriving neighbor-
hood. The center of activity was the comer gro-
cery store. One Saturday night, two women got
into a fight and grabbed each other by the hair.
The neighborhood men stood around clapping
and yelling" pull tight, pull tight...."
The two women survived, and the name
stuck.
In the 1940s the Spears family lived at 4 Fos-
ter St. in Pull Tight. The family had a mini re-
union last week and posed for a photo in front
of that house.
The house was built in 1921 by a Mister
Mott, who included a trap door to lead to a cel-
lar. Rumor has it that Mister Mott was in the
moonshine business and stored his inventory in
that cellar.
The house is in excellent condition, said
Gene Spears, and it is owned by Buford and
Dorothy Creech.
How did the Spears family find its way to
Pull Tight?
Howard and Thelma Spears were farmers in
south Alabama. When their house caught fire


and burned to the ground, they lost everything.
The fire and the Great Depression convinced
them that they should get in on the mass migra-
tion of farmers from south Alabama to Florida.
So, Howard, Thelma and five little boys
loaded up into a Model A Ford and drove to
Winter Garden. This city was a logical destina-
tion since it was a major citrus and truck farm
center.
Jobs were plentiful, but there was absolutely
no available housing. In the first five years
after moving to Winter Garden the family in-
creased from seven to nine and they lived in
some very interesting places.
The Spearses' first home was in downtown
Winter Garden above what is now Tony's Li-
quors. They next moved to "Britt Quarters" and
then for a short time lived in an Army-type tent
behind the Burch home near Pull Tight.
They eventually moved into the house in Pull
Tight. After that, the family lived in two differ-
ent places in Oakland before moving to a.per-
manent home on Dillard Street.
All of the Spears children still live in the area
except Glynda in Atlanta and Jack in Jackson-
ville. Many years after Pull Tight, Ray served
as mayor of Winter Garden and Gene served as
mayor of Windermere.

Good Times band completes 3rd year


The happy sound of Dixie-
land jazz music has become a
regular fixture, of downtown
Winter Garden, just as it was
in New Orleans more than a
century ago. Leader Fred Case
and his five piece Good Times
Jazz Band have just completed
the third consecutive year of
playing on the fourth Friday of
each month.
Concerts are held in the
gazebo next to the fountain
thanks to local business sup-
port and the city of Winter
Garden.
Said Case: "Downtown has
just been refurbished, and
there simply were few regular-
ly scheduled events; certainly
nothing like once a month to
draw people. Having played
with all of these great jazz
musicians at Disney and other
places in the area, I knew we
could do something really neat


and help fill that void."
And, so, he approached
several local businesses and,
getting the support he needs,
started the events in August
2006.
"We started with the Win-
ter Garden Pizza Company,
which has continued to be a
main sponsor the whole three
years, and we're very grateful
to them," Case said.
Other supporters have been
Downtown Brown's, Lacey's
Past and Presents and Sines
Girvin Blakeslee and Camp-
bell CPAs.
The city of Winter Garden
joined in as a sponsor when
several supporting downtown
businesses closed.
The concerts have been such
a success that the city has, for
several months, sponsored
music at that same location on
other Friday nights from 7-9.


Christine Moore-Curtis (Orange County Public Schools
Board member) spoke to the West Orange Kiwanis Club
about making the grades; With her is Kiwanian John Ham-
buch.

Kiwanis hears about school grades


Christine Moore-Curtis,
a board member of Orange
County Public Schools, shared
information with the West
Orange Kiwanis Club about
school grades. She said Orange
County is an A district and that
there are only three districts in
Florida with an A rating.
She also gave FCAT read-
ing, math, writing and science
averages.
"Our numbers are going up
in each category," she said.
"Each year they change the
benchmark; this is set in Talla-
hassee at the state level. They
set the standards or basis, and
it is then sent down to the
teachers to establish the cur-
riculum."
Moore-Curtis said Orange


County has no F schools, that
17 schools improved to an A
rating, 12 went from a C to an
A, five went from a D to a B
and Mollie Ray Elementary
went from an F to an A.
"In measuring high school
graduations, we moved from
35th in the nation to No. 10,"
said Moore-Curtis.
She shared changes for the
2009-10 school year regard-
ing school grades and said the
School Board is looking at
creative ways to find funding
for the schools to make up for
the budget cuts.

Insects getting
spotlight at ONP
By John Murphy
The Oakland Nature Preserve
is out to prove that insects are
more than just pests that annoy
us during a Fourth of July picnic
or spoil a camping trip.
"We feel the program is very
important because most people
don't realize how much value
they have," said Jim Thomas,
president of ONP. "We know
for example, that pollinating
insects are declining rapidly,
in numbers and in numbers of
species, and without them, we
will not be able to produce many
food crops."
The program will be led by
Christian Miller, a graduate en-
tomologist, assisted by others
trained in the field.
One insect-themed event was
held at the ONP on July 10 that
included a PowerPoint presen-
tation about mosquitoes and a
demonstration of a trap being set
for mosquitoes. The aspects of a
mosquito's lifecycle, as well as
information about the different
species of insects and the diseas-
es they carry, were presented.
Other points of discussion
included the best ways to keep
away mosquitoes, as well as
their benefits.
"You can either go at mos-
quitoes like they're flying pests
and want to kill them," Miller
said during his discussion of
common misunderstandings of
mosquitoes, "or you can look
at their natural lifecycles and
understand the ecology of the
cycle and the best way to con-
trol them."
Regarding keeping insects
away, Miller offered several of
what he called "culture control
methods" that can be used as
ways to avoid mosquitoes. This
includes building a living quar-
ters that is several feet above the
ground.
"If you get at the top of those,
you may have lots of mosquitoes
out in the environment, but they
don't see you," he explained.
Miller also pointed out other
tidbits such as darker clothing
is more of an attraction to mos-
quitoes than light clothing.
After the presentation, things
were moved outside, where
Miller dug holes and baited
them in hopes of capturing in-
sects for study.
According to Thomas, the
long-term goals of the programs
include a general education of
the public about the roles insects
play in all kinds of ecosystems.
Student programs at the preserve
and other school programs will
be offered as well.
"One of the things we hope to
accomplish is a thorough collec-
tion of the insects found in West
Orange County, to show people
what they are and to identify
them," said Thomas.
Insects will be put on display
in a yet-to-be-obtained special-
interest museum cabinet.
"We have been promised do-
nation of a case but don't have
it yet. We hope to get it soon,"
said Thomas.
Thomas said he would like
to eventually generate enough
interest to hold monthly group
meetings, but for now, the focus
has been on techniques for col-
lecting insects, as well as some
general education presentations
on insects.
"We have purchased a great
deal of collecting equipment,
and we will encourage people to
help in collecting, but only un-
der close supervision," he said.


W.O. Baptist plans
Round-up Sunday
West Orange Baptist Church
will host Round-up Sunday on
Aug. 9 with Sunday school at
9:30 a.m., worship service at

to bring a dish to share. The
church's goal is to have more
than 200 people at its morning
worship.
The church is at 200 Tubb St.,
Oakland.

Spaghetti dinner at
Oakland church
A spaghetti dinner will be
held Sunday, Aug. 16, in sup-
port of Anthony Hodge and his


Finding the Lost Sheep ministry.

but donations will be accepted.
The dinner will precede the
Cafd Worship service in the

Winter Garden.


Splishin' and splashin'
The town of Oakland has been providing Monday morning activities for children this
summer. Last week, the participants enjoyed Water Day, which included wiggly hoses,
spraying beach balls and several wading pools. Below, I-r, Kada Jablon, Emma Takacs,

available.
Friends are organizing a bass fishing tournament for Saturday,
Aug. 8, starting at "safe light" and ending at 3 p.m. It will take
place on John's Lake. The entry fee is $60, and the day will include

High school students from
across the state of Florida
learned about city govern-
ment with Ocoee Mayor Scott
Vandergrift at City Hall on a
recent July Sunday. Students
and faculty from the Lou Frey
Institute's Civic Leadership
Academy (CLA) visited City
Hall to participate in Mayor
Vandergrift's Utopia exercise.
Utopia, which is a play writ-
ten by the mayor, emphasizes
the differentprocedures elected
officials, as well as city direc-
tors, take part in during com-
mission meetings. The play's
characters were role-played by
the CLA students. They were
chosen to represent a police
chief, firechief, recreation di-
rector, utilities director, citizens,
mayor and commissioners as if
it were a real-life meeting.
Ocoee City Manager Robert
Frank, Assistant City Manager
Jamie Croteau and several di-
rectors were in attendance to
support and assist the students
during the play.
"The Utopia event partner-
ship with Lou Frey Institute's

There are afew opportunities for service to the Body
of Westwood Church and to our community that we
thought you would want to be aware of:
First of all, our cupboard is bare. As you can imag-
ine, with the current economic situation, we have
recently had a significant increase in requests for
food assistance. As a result, the supplies in our Food
Pantry are almost completely depleted. Whether you
are a regular contributor to the Food Pantry, or an
occasional contributor, or have not yet participated
in this ministry, we could sure use your help now!
One suggestion from our Food Pantry coordinators
is that you watch the ads at grocery stores and pick
up extra BOGO (buy-one-get-one-free) items and
bring some of the free items to our pantry. [Remem-
ber, we are limited in the types of foods we can store,
so we ask that you stick strictly to tie guidelines and
bring items from the following list - canned meats,
vegetables, sauces, fruits, soups; powdered milk,
drinks (such as Kool Aid), soups; instant potatoes,
pastas, crackers n r.iir ,.... mayonnaise, Miracle
Whip, peanut *.,r , j..I: chili & chili sauce,
spaghetti sauce, rice and pasta mixes, dried beans,
macaroni and cheese, Velveeta (non-refrigerated)
cheese, breakfast cereals, 2-lb bags of sugar; tooth-
paste, toothbrushes, deodorant, soap, shampoo, toilet
paper; disposable diapers, baby food.] Please bring
your donations and place them in the grocery cart in
the 100 hallway (outside the offices), whenever you
come to church for worship services, community
group, appointments or ministry. It is a great respon-
sibility and privilege to feed those who are hungry,
as though we were feeding our Savior.
Second, as we expand our benevolent ministry
through collaboration with Christian Help, we
could use some assistance. We could use you help.
Christian Help services job placement, financial as-
sistance, encouragement & prayer) will be offered
Tuesday and Thursdays, 9:30am - 3pm. If you are
interested in being trained as a Christian Help coun-
selor, you would have the opportunity to meet with
people who have real needs, and to whom you could
powerfully minister in the name of Jesus. Please
contact Westwood Church to make arrangements for
training and to set a schedule.
Thirdly, our Community Outreach, Connections and
Children's Ministry teams are working together to
host VBS on the grounds at the Silver Pines Apart-
ment complex (at 5402 Pine Chase Dr) on Thursday
and Friday, August 13 and 14, 9am-12noon. Fol-
lowing the VBS on Friday, there will be a Block
Party for the kids and their families, 12noon-3pm,
with plenty of food and fun for the whole family. If
you are available to help plan or staff the VBS and/
or Block Party, please contact our church office at
407.295.4381.
Finally, our Missions Team is sponsoring the Christ-
mas in July Shoebox Gift drive in support of New
Missions in Haiti, in their effort to reach thousands
of children and provide a shoebox gift for those
who otherwise would not have anything on Christ-
mas. Our goal is to send 100 boxes from Westwood
Church. If you did not pick up a shoebox in the lob-
by, you can just use your own, and fill it with small
toys, school supplies, hygiene items, small pieces
of clothing, etc. Remember filled boxes must be re-
turned to Westwood Church by this coming Sunday
(August 2nd), so they can be packed, shipped and
sent to Haiti in time to be distributed for Christmas.
Wow! Aren't there many, and varied ways we can
Serve the World? Don't you love it that God has
given us the opportunity to participate with Him in
what He is already doing? I trust you will listen for
the prompting of His Spirt, and step in wherever He
leads you! Enjoying the journey with you,
Jon Dunwell, Lead Pastor

Windermere


Rotary of Windermere celebrates 40th anniv.


Forty years ago, a small
group of men joined together
to form the Rotary Club of
Windermere. Five of those
charter members are still in
the club today - Bill Curdts,
Bill Sims, Everett Fisher, Don
Strube and Whit Chase.
Since its beginning in 1969,
the Windermere Rotary has
raised more than $2 million
to serve the community in
many ways. Funds were given
to the local hospital, schools
and charitable organizations
in West Orange County and
for many projects in the town
of Windermere, including the
Chase Library.
In order to commemorate
and celebrate this milestone
of service to the community,
Windermere Rotarians looked
for and decided on a project to
greatly benefit the town and
all who used the Town Hall.
The membership voted
to construct a handsome
porch addition on the back
of the Town Hall building.
The successful completion
was made possible with
contributions of time and skills
from Canin & Associates for
the preliminary plans, Hunton

Those who attended the
town's annual Fourth of July
Pancake Breakfast at Town
Hall were able to use this
beautiful porch in the shade
and cooled by the ceiling
fans.

Longtime Windermere


pharmacist retires


By Kathy Aber

Home deliveries of prescription have been a
thing of the past for years. But now many estab-
lished Windermere residents also will be missing
a friendly face in the local pharmacy window.
Pharmacist John Oswalt, who served Wind-
ermere-area resi-
dents for the past
35 years, counted
out his last pill
and filled his last
prescription July
2 to start a new
life as a retiree.
Well known
to Windermere
townspeople, Os-
walt owned and
operated Wind-
ermere Pharmacy
on the corner of
Fifth Avenue and
Main Street in
Windermere from
1974-1989.
During the
1980s, there was ,
never a need to try
and locate a 24-
hour drug store. , g

cy, Windermere

after-hours phone years, Most recently, Osv

making home de-
liveries - not only to Windermere residents but
even to customers who lived outside the town
limits.
In an interview Monday, Oswalt said he al-
ways felt a career in pharmacy' was something
he was supposed .to do. He graduated from the
University of Florida College of Pharmacy in
1971 and started his career at Albert Drug Stores
on the comer of Edgewater Drive and Princeton
Street in College Park.
Three years later, he opened his own business
in Windermere.
"Most of the time when I was in Windermere I
went to work to see my friends. It's a very close
community," Oswalt said.
"If someone needed me, I was there. I used
to do a lot of that."
When he closed Windermere Pharmacy in
1989, he joined the pharmacy team at Publix.
His first assignment was at the store on Turkey
Lake Road near Interstate 4. Then, he moved to
the Plantation Grove Publix on Maguire Road


when it opened. About six years later, he relo-
cated to the Publix supermarket at the Cascades
of Isleworth on Apopka-Vineland Road.
. "Working for Publix was almost like work-
ing for myself," said Oswalt. "I enjoyed helping
people out."

dren Michelle and
Michael, were
town residents
for more than 20
years, living in a
4,000-square-foot
home John built
himself.
"It almost killed
me, but I did it,"
Oswalt said.
With some help
and guidance.
from a couple
of friends, Steve
Betcher and Bob
Woods, he did
everything but
the foundation,
dry wall, plumb-
ing and air-condi-
tioning.
For the wiring,
an electrician
showed him the
way and checked
the work when he
finished. Friends
joined together
for a framing par-
ty to set the floor
joists, but Oswalt
single-handedly
installed roof
trusses, the roof-


ing shingles and siding and did all the paint-
ing.
He and his family are longtime members of
-Holy Family Catholic Church, and John was ac-
tive in Windermere's Operation Pride downtown
beautification committee in the 1980s. Besides
landscape plantings, downtown building im-
provements and adding a gazebo to Palmer Park,
the committee initiated a park bench project.
Oswalt used his carpentry skills to construct
the park benches for Operation Pride, and 23
were installed throughout town by 1990.
Twelve years ago, the Oswalts sold their home
in Windermere and now live just a few miles
north in the Cross Creek neighborhood.
When asked for his hopes for retirement, John
said, "Right now I'm just enjoying it. I'm doing
a lot of stuff I haven't been able to get accom-
plished in a long time - yard projects, working
with plants and building furniture."
He and his wife have already done some trav-
eling and plan to do more.

Windermere girls win Little League state softball title


Two other softball teams
from Windermere Little
League finished as state
runners-up.
For the first time ever, a Little League
state championship has come to Wind-
ermere.
The 11- to 12-year-old softball Major
All-Stars from Windermere Little League
captured the state title Monday night with
a 3-1 victory over South Tampa after hav-
ing defeated Naples 4-2 in the semifinals
earlier that day.
The girls advance to the Southeast re-
gional tournament in Ceredo-Kenova,
W.Va., with little time to celebrate. After
returning home from South Florida on
Monday night, players, coaches and par-
ents quickly repacked their suitcases and
headed north for the team's first-round re-


gional game, set for this Thursday, July 30,
at 4 p.m. vs. the Alabama state champs.
Windermere's following tournament
games are this Friday at 10 a.m. vs. Geor-
gia and this Saturday at 2:30 p.m. against
North Carolina. The top two teams from
each pool in the tournament advance to
semifinal games this Saturday. The region-
al championship game is set for Monday,
Aug. 3. The winner of the Southeast re-
gional tournament advances to the Little
League Softball World Series, which is
played each August in Portland, Ore.
This has been an outstanding summer
overall for Windermere Little League soft-
ball, which was the only league in Florida
to send all three of its softball all-star teams
to the state tournament. All three Wind-
ermere teams - 9-10 Minors, 10-11 Ma-
jors and 11-12 Majors - advanced to the
championship games.
The 9-10 Minor League girls won their


Windermere All-Star outfielder Hannah Fidelo can't hold back the tears as

Racquel Fournet, Sydney Pollock, Payton Walker, Gabby Orland, Madison Hynes, Han-
nah Fidelo, Courtney Cox, Brooke Dyer, Jessica Lien, Victoria Gracey and Mary Hynes;
Coach Chris Orland, Manager Chris Hynes and Coach Wes Pollock.


Windermere Little League's 9-10 Minor League All-Stars clinched the Section 5 title
on July 19 by sweeping Little League district champs from Goldenrod, St. Cloud and
Oviedo. The Windermere girls ended their run with a loss this Monday to Bloomingdale
in the state finals. Pictured celebrating their sectional victory are (1-r): front row, Ciara

Mary Grace Sykes, Brittney Matthews, Taylor Vanarsdol, Haleigh Peters, Jillian Chabot,
Kaitlin Wiles, Megan Welsh, Samantha Golden; back row, Coach Chris Sykes, Manager
Debbie Buchanan, Coach Walley Buchanan, Coach Phil Golden and Coach Dan Fry.


2nd at sectionals
The Windermere Little League 11-year-old All-Stars finished 2nd in the sectional
tournament after winning the district baseball tournament earlier this month. The
team finished its playoff run with a 6-1 record. Pictured are players Parker Newell,
Bryce Gilgallon, Brett DioGaurdi, Justin Herring, Alec Larue, Trey Page, Roberto
Guillen, Logan Cox, Mason Franco, Max Paulson, Sebastian Gonzalez and lan
Fullilove with coaches Paul Gilgallon, Carl Paulson and Jon Elicio (manager).


W.G. Juniors are runners-up at sectionals
The Winter Garden Little League Junior All-Stars won the District 14 title on July 17 and
advanced to the sectional tournament, where they finished 2nd. The Winter Garden boys
came only 1 run short of making a bid for the state title, losing 4-3 to Pine Castle. WGLL
has not had a team to advance this far since 1988. Donning their silver medals are play-
ers Keaton Allison, Mark Behler, Tyler Best, Cody Burgess, Philip Burket, Riggs Cannon,
Anthony Ciardullo, Chance Duvall, T.J. Garner, Jace Johnson, Greg Kalogridis, Gabriel
Marte and Jock Petree and coaches Tim Behler, Mike Allison and Tad Duvall.

6-5. Racquel Foumet pitched all seven in-
nings for Windermere and also had a hit
and scored a run.
After falling behind by three runs early
in the game, Windermere battled its way
back to a 5-5 tie in the fifth inning. Wind-
ermere threatened in the bottom of the sixth
but could not reach home plate. Land 0
Lakes scored the go-ahead run in the top of
the seventh inning and then shut down the
Windermere bats for the final three outs.

Schools


The Foundation Academy yearbook staff took its annual retreat to the beach. Spon-
sor Amy Morgan and yearbook mom Melinda Leiferman drove the staff to Treasure
Island for a few days of work and fun. The trip allowed the staff to get a head start on
planning for the upcoming yearbook, practice skills and bond as a team. Morgan said
it is 1 of the most important steps in their process of producing a quality publication
and building working relationships. On the trip were Emily Galvin, Kayla Jones, Jackie
Novick, Danielle Lauriout, Meredith Leiferman, Angela Rice and Audrey Rice.


Montverde Academy


Montverde Academy is proud to announce the Shoes
to Senegal campaign was a huge success. Recent
graduate Nick Diatta, who is pictured with 2 of the 15
boxes of shoes collected, started the project. The 6'8"
student athlete was raised in Dakar, which is the capital
of the West African country of Senegal. He moved to
the United States during his sophomore year to attend
Montverde Academy but remains committed to helping
those who are less fortunate in his homeland. Diatta's
generous spirit led to a shoe drive that netted more
than 15 boxes full of sneakers for the people of Senegal
this year He is still hopeful that more support will pour
in to help cover the shipping expenses to West Africa,
which can be an enormous cost. For more information
and to contribute to this effort, contact the Office of
Institutional Advancement at 407-469-2561, Ext. 271.


Two local students

In total, 944 students nation-
wide were chosen in Burger
King's ninth year of showcas-
ing the importance of receiving
an education.
"It's especially gratifying
that the Burger King Scholars
Program can continue to offer
financial support in this chal-
lenging economic environment
and enable high-achieving,
dedicated students to continue
their education and pursuit of
successful careers," said Ivette
Diaz, Have It Your Way Foun-
dation's executive director.
The scholarship winners are
selected based on their grade-
point average, work experi-
ence, financial need, extracur-
ricular activities and commu-
nity service.
