Some parents and students
liked last year's time flip, and
others hated it. Brit no matter
how they felt about the school
start-time schedule, it's being
changed again.
In an effort to save millions
of dollars in transportation
costs and capital outlay for
new buses, the Orange County
School Board voted a year ago
to swap the start times of high
school and middle school stu-
dents. For the 2008-09 school
year, the younger ones head-
ed to class around. 7:30 a.m.
while the older teens didn't go
in until around 9:30.
But three candidates for the


School .Board, Vicky Bell,
,Christine Moore and Nancy
Robbinson, ran for a seat on
the promise of voting to re-
verse the flip. People took
them at their word, and the
commissioners held up their
end of the bargain.
The first day of public
school in Orange County is
Monday, Aug. 24.' Elementary
schools in West Orange Coun-
ty will begin anywhere from 8.
to 9 a.m., the first bell for mid-
dle-schoolers will ring at 9:30,
and high school students start
class at 7:15 a.m.;(West Or-
ange) or 7:20 a.m. (Dr. Phil-
lips, Ocoee and Olympia).
This is the first time in five
years that a new school didn't


Orlando resident Lexi Johnson will be at the 1-day screen-
ing this Saturday of 'Mandie and the Secret Tunnel' at the
Garden Theatre. Johnson portrays Mandie in the film.

One-day screening of

'Mandie and the Secret

Tunnel' this Saturday at

the Garden Theatre


Mandie and the Secret Tun-
nel, a new family film starring
Orlando resident Lexi John-
son and Dean Jones, will play
for one day only at the Gar-
den Theatre in Winter Garden
this Saturday, Aug. 22, at 2
and 4:30 p.m.
,Johnson will attend the
screenings, along with the
producers, Owen Smith and
Joy Chapman, and additional
cast members.
Based on the book series
by Lois Leppard, Mandie and
the Secret Tunnel is Johnson's
sixth film with the producers.
"What first drew us to the
movie was the unique story
about a girl in 1899 and the
fact that we already knew the
perfect actress to play her.
Lexi Johnson brings a sense


of adventure, boldness and
reality to the character of
Mandie, which invites young
audiences to enter the story
themselves and join her quest
to solve the mystery," said
Chapman.
. Johnson began exploring
her passion for acting with
the role of Circus, the rough-
and tumble heroine in the five
DVD family series, The Sug-
ar Creek Gang. She chooses
'to be home schooled and dual
enrolls at Valencia Commu-
nity College.
Tickets for the screening
are available online at tick-
ets.mandiempvies.com or on
Aug. 22 at the Garden theater
box office (cash only). Prices
are $5 for children 14 and un-
der and $7 for adults.


open in West Orange County.
In the past five years, the area
has added four elementary
schools, one middle school,
one high school and a replace-
ment high school.
Earlier this year, the School
Board had discussed the pos-
sible closure of up to eight
small elementary schools in
Orange County - including
Maxey'Elementary in Winter
Garden - but that plan has
been halted. Instead, the board
is considering a complete re-
zoning of Orange County in
an effort to better equalize en-
rollment numbers and demo-
graphics at every school.

"Houses are flooded...
streets are flooded...phones
are ringing all the time," Town
Manager Cecilia Bernier told
the Windermere Town Coun-
cil last Tuesday.
"This is a huge issue we
all need to sit down and talk
about. We don't know who to
go to first."
Bernier prepared a map and

that showed major stormwater
improvements that have been
completed recently with grant
funding and 16 other areas in
town where untreated storm-
water flows directly into the
lakes. These areas have been
identified for future work that
currently is not funded. The
map also highlighted 10 new
areas with chronic drainage
problems after several months
of consistent and heavy rain-
fall.
Some of these locations
have had continual' stormwa-
ter issues for many years, and
others are new areas recently
identified by either staff or
residents, the town manager
said.
In some cases, there are
maintenance issues and the
town needs to open and clean


He and OCPS Superin-
tendent Ron Blocker recom-
mended the following precau-
tions to parents and students.
* Make it a routine to wash
your hands often with soap
and water.
* Cough into your elbow or
into a tissue, not your hands.
* Avoid contact with those
who are coughing or who oth-
erwise appear ill.
* Avoid touching your eyes,
nose and mouth.
* Stay home from school if
you feel sick.

Bernier said old pipes are
mostly.undersized and need to
be replaced.
She explained the town
does not have the ability or
the funds to fix all the newly
flooded areas with the contin-
uous and almost daily heavy
downpours.
Bemier gave the council an
overview of several areas of
immediate concern.
After a steady rain, water
has been coming close to the
front door of a home on Bay-
shore Drive. She said "a very
preliminary" estimate for an
interim fix involves obtain-
ing two easements, creating
sales in the right-of-way and
constructing an inverted "v"

Moore discusses school grades with W.G.


By Michael Laval


Winter Garden was praised
for the performances of its
schools ahd students when
School Board member
Christine Moore visited last
Thursday's City Commission
meeting.
"We're very proud of our
Winter Garden schools," she


told the commissioners.
Orange County Public
Schools, Moore boasted, re-
peated with an A grade as a
district, while the number of
A and B schools continues
to rise and D and F schools
decrease.
Charts demonstrated how
OCPS has kept up with the
state average. Since 1999,


when the school grading
system began, the district's
number of A and B schpols
has risen from 17 to 82. Last
year's total was 74. The tally
of D and F schools in Or-
ange County opened with
36 in 1999 and dropped
to only five this year.

Oakland considers

raising tax rate
By Amy Quesinberry Rhode atthe Oakland Meeting Hall.


They did it last year, and
they might have to do it again
this year.
The Oakland Town Com-
mission is considering a 1-mill
increase in the ad valorem
rate to balance the budget for
the 2009-10 fiscal year. The
Finance Committee recom-
mended to the commission at
its first budget workshop last'
Tuesday that the elected offi-,
cials approve a millage rate of
6.9245.
Even at this rate, the com-
mission would still have to
trim $52,438.85 from its bud-
get. The Finance Committee
made the following recom-
mendations: reduce road work
and parks, trees and build-
ing maintenance; decrease or
consolidate staff positions;
change weekly hours from 40
to 30 or convert full-time em-
ployees to part-time; reduce
sick time or vacation time;
eliminate the sick time buy-
back program; review ben-
efit contributions; consider
switching to contractual ser-
vices; and review buildings
and associated costs.
The first budget hearing is
Wednesday, Sept. 9, at 6 p.m.


The final budget hearing is
tentatively set for Monday,
Sept. 21, also at 6 p.m.
After the budget workshop,
the commission reconvened
for the regular Town Com-
mission meeting.
Jim Thomas, president of
Sthe Oakland Nature Preserve,
came before the commission
with. updates and requests.
He said ONP has received a
grant for a part-time education
director. If the organization
can raise $12,000 by Sept. 1,
it will get i matching grant of
$12,000 and can make the po-
sition full-time.
Thomas said the building
at the corner of Tubb Street
and Oakland Avenue has been
offered to ONP. It was built
in 1923 and is owned by the
Voss family. The facility is in
disrepair, Thomas said, but
he would like to see it refur-
bished and turned into a thrift
store to benefit the preserve.
It would need a new roof, and
the restrooms would have to
be updated for the Americans
with Disabilities Act.
"Thatbuildinghasrealpoten-
tial," said Mayor Kathy Stark.

WILLIAM D. HARTZOG, 93,
passed away peacefully at his
Clermont home on Aug. 11,
2009.
Born on
Jan. 31,
1916 in
Esto,
Fla.,
William
was the
son of
John
Daniel
Hartzog
and
Mattie Watford Hartzog. He
is survived by two daughters,
Denise Hammond of Orlando
and Patricia Flood of Clermont;
sons-in-law Michael Hammond
and Pat Flood; grandchildren
Lydia and Elliott Hammond
and Daniel and Bernie Flood;
brother and sister-in-law, Marvin
and Lois Hartzog. He is also
survived by brother-in-law Ber-
1 nie Morris, Bernie's wife Hazel,
children, Dennis Morris (Wanda)
and B.J. Weyer (Billy) and
grandchildren Will and Michael
Weyer and Brooke Morris. He
was predeceased by his wife
of nearly 64 years, Josephine
Minor-Hartzog, and his second
wife of five years, Almeeta
Herring Johnson Hartzog.
Bill is survived by Almeeta's
son, Chip Johnson, and her
daughter, Mary Jo Green. Bill is
also survived by many nieces,
nephews, cousins and friends.
Bill's father.passed away when
he was only 15 years old, and
Bill moved to Sanford to live
with his older sister, Bera. After
marrying Josephine in 1936,
he moved to Winter Garden.
Although Bill had only an eighth-
grade education, he became a
i very successful and well-known
businessman in West Orange
County. Over the course of 50
years, he owned the Winter
Garden Hardware Store, Bill
Hartzog's Pool Room, Hartzog
and Vick Realty, and hundreds
of acres of orange groves. In
the early 1950s, Bill donated
clay from his orange grove to
Orange County to construct
what became Hartzog Road, a
seven-mile loop which opened
thousands of acres to citrus pro-
duction. Hartzog Road now lies
at the western entrance to Walt
Disney World. Bill was active in
the Masonic Lodge, where he \
served a term as Grand Master
and from which he recently
received his 50-year pin. He
also served as president of the
Winter Garden Lions Club. He
served as a founding direc-
tor of West Orange Memorial
Hospital, West Orange Country
Club, and a director and board
chairman of the Winter Garden
Citrus Cooperative. In addition,
he served several tens on
the Orange County Planning
and Zoning Board during the
years Disney came to Florida.
He was a member of the First
Baptist Church of Windermere
and generously (and often
anonymously) supported its
missions. Bill belonged to both
West Orange Country Club in
Winter Garden and Green Val-
ley Country Club in Clermont.
Until recently, he played at
least two rounds of golf a week,
sometimes shooting his age.
He was a loyal friend to many,
* faithfully visiting those who were
sick or in the hospital. He was
an enthusiastic storyteller and
often captivated both friends
and strangers with tales of early
West Orange County. Bill was
also an avid fan of University
of Florida football. He sat in the
same seats near the 50-yard-
line for more than half a century.
When the games ran too late for
him to attend, he watched them
on television, recorded them
and viewed them over and over.
In lieu of flowers, donations may
be made to Health Central Park
in Winter Garden, where Bill
was tenderly cared for during
the last two months of his life,
or to the First Baptist Church in
Windermere. He will be laid to


making George feel so special
and for continuing to show me
.they care by making me feel safe
and checking on me all the time. I
feel like family and will be grate-
ful forever.
Thank you to all the ones who
called and came by, sent cards,
flowers and food. Words can
never express how much it means
to me. I take it one day at a tithe,
but not one day goes by without
thoughts of George.
Again, thanks from the bot-
tom of my heart and God bless
you all.

Beloved Spring Lake Elem. teacher dies


By Amy Quesinberry Rhode

Michelle Carryl, a third-
grade teacher at Spring Lake
Elementary and the school's
2008-09 Math Teacher of the
Year, was killed in a head-on
collision July 25 while travel-
ing with her family in Rich-
mond Hill, Ga. The Apopka
resident was 41.
Her brother, Cyril Millington,
and nephew, Dwight Spencer,
were also killed in the crash.
Carryl's three children, Jamal,
15, Jamilla, 13, and Jeanine,
9, were in the vehicle and sur-
vived the crash but were seri-
ously injured and taken to an
area hospital.
Jamilla has been released
from the hospital and is stay-
ing with relatives. Jamal and
Jeanine remained hospitalized
last week still recovering from
their injuries.
Spring Lake Elementary in
Ocoee has arranged for griev-
ance counselors to be present
for the first week of school,
which starts Monday.
"She was not only a teacher,
but she was my friend," said Dr.
Angie Osborne, Spring Lake


MICHELLE CARRYL
principal. Osborne recalled the
day she met and hired Carryl
five years ago.
"I knew she was my kind of
person."
Osborne said last week that
Carryl consistently showed
"huge growing gains with her
students" at Spring Lake. She
would have been the third-
grade team leader for the com-
ing school year.
Carryl was born in Guyana.
Known for her generosity, she

a project in which they sent

School in Agricola, Guyana.
Earlier this week, the staff
at Spring Lake voted Car-
ryl Teacher of the Year for
the 2009-10 school year. The
school also plans to plant a tree
in Carryl's memory.
"I think we'll always remem-
ber her for her hugs and smiles
and her encouragement and her
positive attitude," said Dr. Os-
borne. "She always encouraged
us all to want to be better....She
was just an awesome person."
In addition to her children,
she is survived by her husband,
Colin, and 11 siblings.


At one of my Leadership Team meet-
ings this week, I started a discussion
about our church's wedding policies.
Presently we will not marry couples
who are living together. We even go
so far as to ask the question about
their sexual intimacy prior to mar-
riage. I know what you're probably
thinking, "How out-of-touch!" "It's
none of your business," Or possibly
even, "So judgmental!" I'm thinking
perhaps we should drop the rules, and
instead create the opportunity for a
crucial discussion.
Actually, I do have some strong opin-
ions about the matter. Regardless of
all the practical reasons, dangers, and
issues about cohabitation, my con-
cerns come down to distinctiveness.
As a follower of Christ, God does
often ask me to live and do what isn't
always practical. Think about some
of the things He asked His followers
to do in the Bible. Some pretty crazy
stuff. Bottom line, I desire for my
relationships and sexuality to display
my distinct relationship with Christ.
So why would I discuss changing
our wedding guidelines? The answer
comes down to methodology. I long
for people to engage God on the
matter, and not merely interact with
me or some rule. Can we really go
wrong if we encourage people to start
a conversation with God about their
relationships or sexuality? Can we
not trust His Word to speak, and the
Spirit to work? I believe my primary
role as pastor is not to be the moral-
ity police. It's to lead people in their
engagement of God. And if they don't
care, or don't choose to do the work,
or even lie, don't we have a bigger
problem than cohabitation?
Well, I haven't figured this out yet. I
do know I look forward to continued
dialogue with my leaders on this mat-
ter. But, I have figured out, I don't
want people to merely engage me or
the church on this matter. I want to
create a process by which they en-
gage God.
I'd be curious to hear your thoughts.

Schools, parents and stu- exp

to see some changes when fun
school grades are issued at the city
end of the upcoming 2009-10 ofl
school year. As a result of a bill Col
passed by the Florida legisla- pro
ture last year, 50 percent of a mer
school's grade will be based
on the existing FCAT-related
factors and the remaining half
will be based on new factors,
including graduation rate, per-
formance and participation in
AP, IB, dual enrollment, AICE

mately $10,000.
At a residence on Lake But-
ler Boulevard, Bernier said,
the rainwater has flowed down
through the house from the front
door to the rear.
At times, the water has been
"knee deep" on Forest Street
between First and Second av-
enues.
And "at Pine and First streets,
there is an unbelievable amount
of water there," said the.town
manager.
Also on the list of recent
drainage concerns are:
* Oakdale Street at Third Av-
enue
* Butler Street and Sixth Av-
enue
* Main Street at Eighth Av-
enue
* Oakdale Street at Ninth Av-
enue
* Tenth Avenue and dirt Main
Street, and
* Sixth Avenue (Conroy-Win-
dermere Road) at Ridgewood
Avenue.
Bernier proposed several
questions and considerations for
the council to discuss: "Where
do we go from here? How do
you want to go about identify-
ing which properties are a pri-
ority?
"Stormwater needs in the
town are compounding daily.
Grapt funding for future proj-
ects is going to require the nec-
essary funding mechanisms in
place to maintain any new in-
frastructure installed under the
current grant. The town's ability
*to maintain sales on the dirt
roads or the proper grading on
the roads needs to be addressed,
as that requires the right equip-
ment. Can it be contracted out?
Yes, it can, but that also needs
funding."
The council initially dis-
cussed holding a workshop Aug.
25 to look at remedies for the
flooding problems. When the
members learned Public Works
Director.Craig McNeal would
be on vacation, they consid-
ered other dates or combining a
workshop session with a regular
council meeting. To allow ample
time for a thorough discussion
of all the issues, they settled on
holding a workshop for 7 p.m.
Sept. 22.
In other business, the coun-
cil:
* heard an update from proj-
ect manager John Fitzgibbon.on
the stormwater drainage work
under way in Johnson Park. He
said the work is 90 percent com-
plete and would be finished by
Aug. 31.
Next, the same contractor will
begin work at First Avenue and
Oakdale Street. Fitzgibbon said
the shop drawings for the instal-
lation are complete and the pipe
has been ordered. He said crews
would need to enlarge the ex-
isting drainage pond and install
sufficient pipe and filters for ap-
propriate treatment and outfall
of the stormwater, especially
along First Avenue. This work
is being accomplished with
grant funding and will be ac-
complished in -approximately
60 days.

Opinion


In our opinion

Editorials


From our archives

Old Times


The school year begins Monday
morning, and we are urging drivers
to be extra cautious because there
will be many more vehicles on the
roads. Not only are there parents
driving their children to school and
lanes full of school buses, but many
students themselves will be behind
the wheel.
Children from preschool to high
school will be everywhere: walking
and riding their bicycles on side-
walks and along road-
sides, waiting at bus ,
stops, getting on and
off their buses and in
and out of cars.
And with dozens of
public schools - in-
cluding four large high
schools - plus a num-
ber of private schools
and preschools in
West Orange County,
that adds up to a lot of
children traveling our
streets.
When you see a
stopped school bus, there are several
points to remember:
* If you are behind the stopped bus
and the bus' stop sign is out, you must
also stop. You cannot drive around a
stopped bus, whether you are on a
two-lane or four-lane road.
* If the stopped bus is facing you,
you must stop if there is no median
separating traffic. If there is a medi-
an, continue driving with caution.
According to the Orange County
Sheriff's Office's Traffic Enforce-
ment Unit, the following fines will
be imposed if drivers are caught:
* when a stopped school bus is
picking up or dropping off students,
if you pass on the non-exit side of
-the bus the fine is $251; if you pass
on the bus' exit side, it will cost you
$351 plus a mandatory court appear-


ance.
* speeding through a marked school
zone between 1 and 9 mph over the
posted limit will cost $136.
* speeding through that same zone
at 10 to 14 mph will cost $286.
* speeding 15-19 mph over the
posted limit is $386.
* speeding 20-29 mph over the limit
is $436.
* speeding 30 mph or more is a
mandatory court appearance.
The different mu-
nicipalities can im-
Spose their own fines,,
some of which are
even higher than the
county's.
It's extremely im-
portant that, driv-
ers obey the posted
school zones. The
various law-enforce-
S|ment agencies have
strict enforcement bf
school.speed zones
during the school
year.
The AAA Auto Club South offers
tips to drivers: slow down in or near
school or residential areas, come to
a complete stop at intersections, scan
between parked cars for children who
might dart into the road, leave early
so you aren't rushed as you travel to
work or school and drive with your
headlights on - even during the day
- so children and other drivers can
see you.
Drivers, slow down. Be extremely
careful in the early morning during
low-light conditions, because it's
hard to see the students.
The older students should know to
look both ways before crossing the
street; the younger ones might forget.
So, please, drive cautiously around
our schools and around our children.
Let's avoid needless tragedy.


Drivers, slow down for students


75 years ago
After a silence of almost two months except
for the daily tooting of 12 o'clock, the Winter
Garden fire whistle broke into a loud scream
when the Bray warehouse flamed. Ten thousand
dollars worth of hardware implements, includ-
ing plows, harrows, doors, windows and stoves,
burned or melted in the heat of the building. The
structure was wrapped in flames before the first
fire truck arrived. Mr. Bray, who was taking a
bath at the time, burned his hands slightly in an
effort to get the flames under control.

Florida shooting for 75 percent

increase in recycling


Florida residents and businesses could see
changes in the coming years in how recycled
materials are collected.
As part of the Energy, Climate Change and
Economic Security Act signed into law last
year, the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) is working on a plan to meet
a state recycling goal of 75 percent by the year
2020. Today, only about 28 percent of all waste
collected makes its way to recycling facilities,
while the remainder is shipped
to landfills.
The DEP is required to sub-
mit its plan to the state legis-
lature by Jan. 1 and is seeking
input from state and local en-
tities, private businesses and
the public. At a public meeting
held this month at Orlando City
Hall, DEP officials presented
preliminary recommendations
for achieving Florida's 75 per-
cent recycling goal.
Implementing a PAYT pro-
gram, the report stated, is the most important
action most local governments can do to quickly
increase the residential sector recycling rate and
decrease waste. In a PAYT program, customers
pay less for collection and disposal of munici-
pal solid waste if less trash is generated. This
provides a financial incentive for customers to
put more recyclable materials in the recycling
container rather than the waste container.
PAYT, DEP officials said, can also comple-
ment the implementation of a RecycleBank
program, which is similar to PAYT except it

Ross accepted a design award
on behalf of Ross Design Group
at the Southeast Building Con-
ference and Green Building

The renovated home show-
cased an blend of modern ar-

and renewable building prod-
ucts were used throughout. The

rewards customers for increased recycling with
discount coupons supplied by local vendors of
goods and services. The more items a customer
places in the recycling container, the more dis-
count coupons the customer cAn use in local
retail establishments.
RecycleBank is a private organization that
works with interested communities in setting
up its system. In March, it launched its first
program in Florida with the city of North Mi-
ami. Early indications, DEP
officials said, are substantial
additional recycling has been
occurring since then, where
before there was very little
-recycling.
The DEP also recommend-
ed:.
* applying the new recycling
goal to all counties more than
100,000 in population and all
cities exceeding 50,000 citi-
zens. Those local governments
that do not make'a good-faith
effort to achieve the goal would be ineligible
for receiving DEP grants.
* promoting the adoption of PAYT by creating
a grant program to assist local governments in
the design and startup costs of implementing
PAYT.
* establishing programs to educate K-12
students about the benefits of and proper tech-
niques for recycling.

program, visit www.dep.state.fl.us/waste/recy-

Keep your cool: tips to save energy at home


The warmer months are a
great time to take steps to re-
duce energy consumption at
home, while saving money on
cooling costs.
When it comes to conserv-
ing energy, many people think
that transportation is the most
energy-guzzling sector, but it's
not. Buildings are - and that
includes homes.
Accounting for 40 percent of
energy use in the U.S., build-
ings represent a significant
potential for reducing energy
consumption and greenhouse
gas emissions, according to the
American Society of Heating,
Refrigerating and Air-Condi-
tioning Engineers.
There are many ways to save
energy while keeping cool at


home:
* During the day, set the air-
conditioning thermostat at 76
degrees or above, and move it
a few degrees higher at night.
* Clean or change A/C filters
every one to two months. Dirty
filters, coils and fans reduce
airflow, which decreases per-
formance.
* Close drapes or shades on
the east, south and west win-
dows during the day to prevent
the sun's energy from heating
the room.
* Caulk, install weather
stripping or use spray-in foams
around windows and doors, on
exterior walls or between cooled
and unconditioned spaces such
as garages, basements and crawl
spaces.


Visitors to Disney's Vero Beach Resort observe a sea turtle crawling toward to ocean.

Sea turtle gets send-off from Disney guests


With nearly 200 encourag-
ing fans, a loggerhead sea turtle
named Dory returned to the At-
lantic Ocean after successfully
laying eggs near the shores of
Disney's Vero Beach Resort.
Dory is one of 10 sea turtles
participating in Tour de Tur-
tles: A Sea Turtle Migration
Marathon hosted by the Carib-
bean Conservation Corporation
(CCC). The program is designed
to spotlight the challenges fac-
ing sea turtles, with each partici-
pant representing a "cause" or
threat to sea turtle survival.
Dory's mission is to raise
awareness of the effects of
light pollution. Since sea turtle
hatchlings rely on moonlight
to find their way to the ocean,
many become disoriented and
drawn off-course by artificial
light sources.
Researchers from Disney's
Animal Programs and CCC will

track chosen sea turtles by satel-

few months as they travel from
their nesting sites to unknown

hope to discover more about sea
turtle habits at sea and identify
migratory patterns that may

This knowledge should help


researchers, conservationists
and governing agencies make
more informed decisions about
sea turtle conservation methods
and policies.
Each year, approximately
50,000 sea turtles come ashore
in Florida each year, making it
one of the most fertile nesting
areas in the United States.

Yvonne Rutland (2nd from left) has decided it is time to
retire. With her are, I-r, Reuben Bowie, director of nursing;
Lori Jowett, administrator; and David Sylvester, senior vice
president of Health Central and president of Health Cen-
tral Foundation.

Rutland says it's time to retire


Yvonne Rutland has spent
the last few years wondering
if it was time for her to retire.
It saddened her to think of it;
but she decided that now is the
time and July 31 was the last
day of her career as a certi-
fied nursing assistant at Health
Central Park.
Despite not wanting her to
leave, a crowd of residents,
family members, co-workers,
supervisors and even former
employees showed up to show
their appreciation for the re-
markable job that Rutland has
done over the past 37 years.
Before it was West Orange
Manor, Rutland was there.
Before it expanded from 118
beds to 228 beds, Rutland was
there. When it became Health
Central Park, Rutland was
there.
What will it be like without


her? The staff says it will keep
going; but the exemplary care
she provided during all those
years will be missed.
'During her time as a CNA,
Rutland received many notes
of thanks from satisfied resi-
dents and family members.
SShe was named Employee of
the Month at the facility level
and was recognized as the Ca-
reer Nursing Assistant of the
Year in 2008 by the Florida
Association of Nurse Assis-
tants.
Once, when asked why she
kept doing what she was do-
ing, she answered: "I love
what I do, and I love my resi-
dents."
She nurtured a family of her
own while she worked too,
and neither family nor work
received anything less than
her best.

The Central Florida Breast
Cancer Survivors (BCS) Drag-
on Boat Racing Team held a
recent fund-raiser at Chevy's
Mexican restaurant in Ocoee.
Friends, family and several
members of the Next Commu-
nity Church in Winter Garden
lined up to fill tables since 25
percent of each bill was do-
nated to the team.
The Dragon Boat team is
trying to raise the more than
$20,000 needed to purchase
a boat, paddles, life vests and
uniforms to compete in its first
race, which will take place at
the Orlando International Drag-
on Boat Festival at Walt Disney
World Resort on Saturday, Oct.
17. The team also held a raffle
with items donated by the Hard
Rock Caf6 International and
Universal Studios Orlando.
The team's mission is to raise
awareness of breast cancer and
treatment options available to
help survivors of breast cancer
make positive, emotional, spir-
itual and physical changes in
their lives through the ancient
sport of Dragon Boat racing.
Survivors, regardless of age or
athletic ability, are encouraged
to "awaken the dragon within"
by providing them with hope,
support, camaraderie and ad-
venture.
The Central Florida team
was launched in February and
is still looking to.add members
to its team and is also seeking
corporate sponsors and grants
in their fund raising efforts.
Every event or fund-raiser will
include an educational compo-
nent in order to increase aware-
ness of breast cancer and the
importance of early detection.

Thousands of children have


benefited from Ruth Hawk


The teacher,
Sunday'school
leader and
children's home
advocate has
turned 94. Church
and children have
always been a big
part of her life.

By Amy Quesinberry Rhode

Teaching was quite dif-
ferent when Ruth Hawk led
her first classroom in Ohio in
1935. Imagine 52 first- and
second-graders. In one room.
At the same time.
"I didn't have to raisa my
voice; they behaved," said
Hawk, who has lived in
Winter Garden for 44 years
and recently celebrated her
94th birthday surrounded by
friends and family.
By her third year of teach-
ing, her class was scaled


down to 42 first-graders, and
she remembers she "didn't
have to swat very many."
On payday, which was three
times a year in December,
April and July, Hawk would
walk two miles to deposit her
paycheck, which broke down
to $85 per month.
She would continue
teaching through the years,
taking a sabbatical only to
raise three daughters. She
taught under Principal Jessie
Brock's leadership at the for-
mer Winter Garden Elemen-
tary School (once located
on North Main Street) and
retired in 1978 from Dillard
Street Elementary School.
-Children have always
played an important role in
Hawk's life. Not only did
she have three of her own
(daughters Marian Wagster,
Carolyn Looney and Phyllis
Eury) and teach elementary
school for a total of 26 years,
but s.he was a church Sunday
school teacher for 70 years.
In those seven decades, she


taught several generations of
families.
Hawk has been associated
with the Methodist church
for her entire life. Her fa-
ther was a Methodist minis-
ter, and she later married a
man who would become one
as well.
Her dad left the family
when Ruth was just a little
girl, so as the oldest of five
children, she took care of her
younger siblings when their
mother was forced to go to
work as a housekeeper and
a factory worker to support
the family.
After high school, she
scrubbed floors and wait-
ressed to put herself through
college. She earned her
teaching degree at Musking-
ham College, New Concord,
Ohio, so she could continue
making an impact on chil-
dren.
In 1941, she married Ernie
Hawk, who was soon drafted
and sent to Africa during the
war. Ruth Hawk's emotional

state would begin to fluctu-
ate after receiving a war tele-
gram reporting her husband
dead. So she began planning
a memorial service. Ten days
later, he was reported alive
in a hospital in Africa. Less
than a week later, another
war telegram was received
reporting Ernie Hawk dead
again. He still wasn't.
When he was brought to
the U.S. to recover, his wife
sat on a suitcase on a train
bound for New York to meet
him. He then spent seven
months.in a Memphis hos-
pital before being released
from the Army.
Ernie and Ruth moved to
Orlando in the early 1950s
when he became a Methodist
minister. After his retirement
in 1965, the couple moved to
Winter Garden, and he spent
the next 10 years teaching
German at Lakeview High
School.
Ruth Hawk didn't hesitate
to volunteer whenever she
could -- especially when
it involved children - at
the First United Method-
ist Church of Winter Gar-
den, where she has been a
member since moving to
the city. Soon after joining
the church, she assisted the
mission team by making hun-
dreds of school-kit bags for
needy children.
But it was the Florida
United Methodist Children's
Home in Enterprise that
found its way into Hawk's
heart, and this place would
be her focus for decades.
Anyone visiting the chil-
dren's home campus can see
the impact Hawk has made
through the years. A large
Path of Life stone is dedi-
cated in her name.
To raise money for and
awareness of the home, Hawk
put together a Christmas in
July project to collect school
supplies for the children.
By far, though, the project
that has kept her the busiest
is the annual Mile of Pen-


Ruth Hawk has settled into her room at the new The Gar-
dens at lakeview, an assisted-living facility near Lake Apo-


pka.

nies drive. She collects and
rolls the pennies - 84,480
in a mile - and gives the
$844.80 (and sometimes
more) to the children's home
each year.
For her 94th birthday a few
weeks ago, Hawk was the
center of attention at a party
held at daughter Marian's
home. Guests were asked to
bring in pennies, and Hawk
said she rolled coins for days
afterward.
Just prior to her birthday,
Hawk was getting settled
in her new home. She was
one of the first residents to
move into a private room at
The Gardens at Lakeview, a
new assisted-living facility
on Garden Avenue in Winter
Garden.
Six seniors call the place
home. It is owned and oper-


ated by Kelly McCoy Keop-
pen, a registered nurse who
has been in the medical field
for 15 years. She also runs a
similar facility in Oakland.
Residents are looked after
by a 24-hour staff and receive
three home-cooked meals
each day at the dining room
table. Snacks and activities
are also scheduled during the
day. A screened front porch
allows the residents a chance
to enjoy sunsets over Lake
Apopka and peek at wedding
receptions across the street at
Tanner Hall.
Hawk's room is the large
one on the end. It's filled
with mementos of her life,
including photos of her hus-
band, who died in 1995. And
there are plenty of paper coin
rollers for any pennies that
come her way.

. training classes specially designed for senior citizens 60 and over. We also offer
a 10% discount off all class prices for senior citizens.

Smacking a line drive during batting practice at Montverde Academy, Francisco Lindor is playing
this week in Taiwan with the USA Baseball National Team.


Montverde's Lindor stars for

USA Baseball National Team
Montverde Academy has high hopes for shortstop Francisco Lindor.
The rising 11th-grader aspires to be the first Major Leaguer to come
out of the academy.
Lindor, a 5-foot-11-inch, 155-pound switch-hitter, was named to the
USA Baseball U16 National Team. As one of 18 players and only four
infielders selected to represent Team USA, Lindor left on Aug. 9 for
Taiwan to prepare for the IBAF AA World Youth Championships. The
12-team tournament began Aug. 15 and lasts through Aug. 23.
Montverde Academy junior varsity baseball Coach Roberto Rodri-
guez, who also instructed Lindor on his Apopka summer league team
that finished third at the 72-team USA Baseball East tournament in
Jupiter, said Lindor batted .385 and led the team in home runs and
RBIs.
Lindor was among 1,400 players at the tournament picked to attend
the subsequent USA Baseball National Team trials at Cal State Fuller-
ton University. From there, Lindor battled against 18 of the best players
from the West region and ultimately made the national team.
"Francisco is gifted with some special talent and is very dedicated
to the game," said Rodriguez, whose son, Clemente, is a nationally
ranked catcher and teammate of Lindor's at Mohtverde. "He will be
a top draft pick if he continues to do what he does so well. He is so
passionate about the game that his goal is to make it [to the Major
Leagues] so he can take care of his family."
According to Rodriguez, Lindor is a five-tool player who is the
country's No. 7-ranked player for the Class of 2011.
"What's even more exciting," Rodriguez said, "is Lindor has two
more years to get even better. I'm so proud of him because he works
so hard and stays very humble."


Ocoee resident Jason McLeod
was among four Central Florida
runners to receive Charles M.
Rowson Jr. Scholarships from
the Orlando Runners Club. Re-
cipients are selected from coach
nominations based on athletic
accomplishments, academic
record, community service, fi-
nancial need and college running
plans.
McLeod, who graduated in
the spring from Circle Christian
School, finished third in Flori-
da in the 1600m, fourth in the
3200m and ninth in the 5000m.
He holds four individual and
three relay school records, was
named to the Florida Athletic
Coach's Association Senior
Cross Country All-Stars, and
received the Florida Interscho-
lastic Athletic Administrators
Association's (FIAAA) Scholar-
ship Award, the FIAAA Sports-
manship Award and the Circle
Christian School Centurion
Award.

McLeod will be running

has signed a basketball scholar-
ship with Florida State College

player when it captured first
place at nationals in Dayton,
Tenn., in March. Thrash also
won the three-point shootout
in the Orange County All-Star
game,
Flames Coach J.T. Turner
said: "Rijon Thrash will be an
immediate impact at Florida
State College because of her
determination and her ability
to shoot the ball. Rijon was a
jewel to the Lady Flames, andI RIJON THRASH
know she will exceed her-goals
in basketball." for the West Oaks Academy
Thrash was the senior class Class of 2009. She plans to
president and the salutatorian major in pharmacy.

semifinals
Matt Cappleman, a West Or-
ange High 2009 graduate, com-

place kickers.
The National Combine Series

gional level in the football skills
