Chamber, WOPA join forces

The West Orange Chamber
of Commerce (WOCC) and
West Orange Political Alli-
ance (WOPA) support Florid-
ians for Smarter Growth to op-
pose the anti-growth initiative
known as Amendment 4.
The boards of WOCC and
WOPA had previously adopt-
ed resolutions to oppose the
Hometown Democracy peti-


tion-gathering initiative. How-
ever, due to a successful peti-
tion campaign, the initiative
will be on the 2010 General
Election ballot. It will appear.

Melissa Walsh has learned
of many of the details of her
terrifying one-car crash one
year ago this month, but she
doesn't remember much of
it beyond slamming on her
brakes after being cut off by
another driver. Most of what
the 19-year-old Oakland resi-
dent knows has been told to
her. And from what her friends
and family say, it's amazing
she survived at all.
That early-morning crash
on Aug. 11, 2008, shattered
her plans to start college class-
es in the coming weeks and,
instead, sent her on a grueling
road to recovery that would
start out in a center in Atlanta
that specializes in spinal cord
rehabilitation. She would
remain in Georgia for two
months.
The accident damaged her
spinal cord, fractured her pel-
vis and broke her neck in three
places, leaving Melissa - a
former West Orange High
cheerleader and rower -
paralyzed from the shoulders
down. Doctors prepared her
parents, Sheri and Pete Loia-
cono, for the worst, saying she
would likely be "ventilator-
dependent" and "a complete
quadriplegic."

Ocoee signs contract with Apopka for

emergency, police communication services


By Mary Anne Swickerath

In order to save significant
dollars, Ocoee has decided to
contract with Apopka for po-
lice communication services
as of Oct. 1, the start of the'
new fiscal year. This move
was approved by the City
Commission at its regular
meeting last week.
According to Ocoee Police
Chief Charles Brown, the cost
of police communications is
high and continues to rise. This
department's 2008-09 annual
budget totaled $708,670, in-
cluding pay for a staff of 14.
Chief Brown reported to

vices in Central Florida" with
its own radio tower and fre-
quencies. Apopka has the abil-
ity to provide these services to
other municipalities-and cur-
rently does so for (he cities of
Maitland and Eatonville.
Ocoee expects to save from
$200,000 to $300,000 annually
by closing its dispatch depart-
ment. One of the dispatch em-
ployees will stay on as a liai-
son with Apopka, and another
will be transferred to the OPD
records department. The other
12 employees will be laid off
and given severance pay, and
some of them will probably be
hired by Apopka.
Ocoee will pay Apopka


$522,100 for the first year of
a five-year contract, and this
Figure includes $68,000 in
start-up costs. The second year
will cost $479,075, the second
$505,424, the third $533,233
and the fourth $562,550.

GRADY LEE MOORE, a
survivor of the Great Depres-

serve others and died July 23
at the age of 96. Grady.Moore
was
born on
March
31,
1913,
and
raised
in Merit,
Hunt
County,
Texas,
to James P Moore and Tula
Clinton Moore. He finished his
schooling in Campbell, Texas,
and began working various
jobs. Earning a living was
desperate during the Depres-
sion, and Grady and his new
wife, Lois, heard President
Roosevelt speak on, the radio
of jobs in the nation's capital.
In 1936, with only a small
suitcase, he and Lois left like
pioneers to find jobs in Wash-
ington, D.C. Grady managed
the Howard W. Clark Truck-
ing Co. With the'outbreak of
World War II, Grady joined
the U.S. Navy and served
with the Mediterranean Fleet
based in Naples, Italy. Upon
discharge from the Navy in
1946, Grady returned home
to Arlington, Va., to Lois and
his two children, Joyce and
Philip. He started up his own
successful Grady L. Moore
Trucking and Delivery Service
and continued in business un-
til 1970. He sold the business
and retired to Tallahassee. He
and Lois had always dreamed
of retiring in.Florida, and so
they chose Tallahassee with


its rolling hills and spring
dogwoods blooming. Grady'
never received great public
honors and decorations for
his work, but he was always
remembered by family, friends
and East Hill Baptist Church
members as a very giving man
with a loving heart for others.
Grady never said an unkind
word about anyone. This
perhaps is his greatest legacy.
He is survived by one son,
Philip David Moore of Floyd,
Virginia; and one daughter,
Joyce Rose of Windermere,
FL; nine grandchildren; and 10
great-grandchildren. Funeral
services were held Monday,
July 27, at East Hill Baptist

By Victoria Laney
There was no television when
Charles Verne Moir was born
on Dec. 4, 1944. He was the
youngest of eight children, and
he and his twin brother spent
their youth playing baseball
and other sports in Hartford,
Conn. They could only dream
of watching a real baseball
game at Yankee stadium.
Verne made it possible for
kids everywhere to see a real
game when he became the
cameraman for the New York
Yankees. After completing his
studies at the RCA broadcast-
ing school in New York City,
he was a cameraman for major
networks. He broadcast Walter
Cronkite's tearful response to
the first lunar landing.
When his twin died tragically,
Verne moved back to Hartford
to comfort his parents, the late
Charles E. and Vivian B. (Keys)
Moir. He had served a mission
in Oregon for The Church of Je-
sus Christ of Latter-day Saints,


and he broadcast his unshak-
able faith.
'After the Washington, D.C.,
Temple was announced, he
moved to Maryland to be part
of the construction team. He
installed and maintained the
temple's audiovisual system,
which broadcast in multiple

our community as 'new' regu-
lars."
"The economic 'impact of
film, television and commercial.
production is far reaching, said
Jennifer Pennypacker, Film and
Digital Media Development
director at the Metro Orlando
Film & Entertainment Commis-
sion. "Every aspect of the com-
munity will feel the benefit -
from the local hardware store to
office supply stores and family-
owned restaurants. While the
bulk of the money is spent on
local labor, this translates to
tax and infrastructure support
throughout our region."
"As a downtown merchant,
I have seen firsthand how their
presence helps the local econ-
omy, not only while they are
filming, but after the project is
over; many come back to visit
and bring friends and family,"
said Valdes. "I always look
forward to the next project that
will come to our town."
Past movies filmed in Winter
Garden have featured many top
Hollywood stars. Tom Hanks in
Earth to the Moon (HBO spe-
cial) filmed at the American
Legion on West Plant Street.
Sydney White (2007) featuring
Amanda Bynes and John Sch-


neider had shoots at the First
United Methodist Church of
Winter Garden and the Winter
Garden Heritage Museum. John
Goodman's Matinee (1993) had
a scene at Shirley Smith's store
that was transformed into a
neighborhood grocery store.
Some movie watchers may
have missed the Guardians
(2006), All Shook Up (1999)
and Held for Ransom (2000)
that all featured a scene in Win-
ter Garden.
Just in the past two years,
Winter Garden has been the
location for eight commercials
from AARP to Bob Evans. Ti-
ger Woods filmed two commer-
cials a few years back at Earl


languages. At the age of 42 he
earned his bachelor's degree in
fine arts and broadcasting from
the University of Maryland.
He married Linda Smith,
and they moved near Ocoee in
1988. He helped construct and
maintain audiovisual and other
systems in the Orlando Temple.
The temple was his favorite em-
ployer because he worked with
great people who appreciated
and honored his work. He made
friends with everyone he came
in contact with, because he was
�o outgoing. Waitresses, clerks,
tellers, and neighbors all knew
him by name, Linda said.
He is survived by a daughter,
Melanie Coleman and husband
Mark, and a grand-daughter, 16
month-old Amaya, "the apple
of his eye"; three brothers, Kirk
Moir and wife Kay, Richard
Moir and wife Marilyn, Francis
Moir and wife Maureen; two
sisters, Loretta Dienst and hus-
band Daniel, Sandra D'Attilio
and husband Raymond; and nu-
merous nephews and nieces.

of historic downtown Winter

visitors alike.

Opinion


Gov. Charlie Crist is a busy man
these days, running for the Senate and
performing the duties of governor, like
choosing his possible predecessor in the
U.S. Senate. We have complete con-
fidence that Gov. Crist will carefully
weigh his long list of possible replace-
ments for Mel Martinez's senate seat,
and choose the candidate that will best
serve - best serve senate candidate
Charlie Crist.
Can we count on the same care he has
given other appointments? Like his feet
dragging of Judge Pleus' replacement
with a disingenuous claim that he was


Editor,
The following story is true. The names have
been changed to protect the innocent.
The proposed limits have been criticized as
unreasonable and unnecessary. The limits will
result in high costs that are unproductive in im-
provement in water quality.
Neither the U.S. Congress nor the Legislature
of the State of Florida has appropriated funds to
allow local governments to comply with the re-
quirements of the limits.
Local governments are in a revenue crisis.
The crisis is the result of revenue restraints put in
place by the people of Florida and their Legisla-
ture, the collapse of property values and the prof-
ligate spending practices of local government. Is
this another rant on septic systems? No. Much of
the preceding was paraphrased from a resolution
of the Orange County Commission concerning
water quality rules for stormwater. The resolu-
tion was recently sent to the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection (DEP). Well, OK,
the part about protecting the innocent was not in
the resolution.
In the septic system matter, the Department
of Health (DoH) has tried to impose a rule that
would cause the financial ruin of homeowners.
In the current matter, DEP refuses to modify its
rules to clearly differentiate between lakes or
rivers and drainage ditches and retention ponds.


As property appraiser for Orange County, I do
not set millage rates and I do not raise or lower
taxes. By law, I am charged with appraising all
real property and tangible personal property in
Orange County fairly and equitably, based upon
sales and events in the marketplace. I then apply
any qualifying exemptions before your taxable
value is determined. Based on market condi-
tions, I can only change your just market value.
The various taxing authorities (county, school,
cities, towns, fire, sheriff, library, water manage-
ment districts, etc.) set their own millage rates,
commonly referred to as tax rates. These tax
rates are then applied against your taxable value
to determine your tax bill.
What you need to know is that even in the
midst of these tough economic times, when the
local unemployment rate is in excess of 10%
and when metro Orlando is one of the top 10
in the country for number of foreclosures, some
local taxing authorities are proposing increases
to their millage rate and therefore, continuing to
raise your property taxes.
They do it by telling you that they are using
their "rolled-back rate." Well, it may sound good
but it's not the same as when Wal-Mart says its
"rolling back prices"!
A rolled-back millage rate is the calculated
rate necessary, using 2009 total taxable value, to
generate the same tax revenue a taxing author-
ity generated in 2008. Historically, a rolled-back
rate is "lower" than the prior year tax rate. This
occurs when total taxable property value for that
taxing authority has increased over the prior
year (higher total taxable value x lower rolled-
back rate = same taxes).
But hold on, this isn't the case in 2009. Be-
cause of the tumbling real estate market, the
total taxable value for the county and every mu-
nicipality has decreased over 2008. Therefore, it
takes a rolled-back rate "higher" than the prior
year rate to get the same taxes. The rolled-back
rate has now become what some are calling a
"rolled-UP" rate because it is higher than the
prior year tax rate.
To use an analogy, let's take your personal


interested in diversity or his recent ap-
pointment of Michael Rudisill to judge
in the 18th Judicial Circuit. Rudisill, 33,
scored high enough in the "well-con-
nected" category to outweigh his low
score in the "experienced" category.
Now, Gov. Crist must appear to be
considering each possibility on his di-
verse list, a list that covers many con-
stituencies in the Republican Party.
In the end he will appoint the perfect
senator. So perfect in fact, that he or
she will only need 15 months in office
and will choose not to run for election
in 2010.


In this case, the lack of action could be the finan-
cial ruin of taxpayers.
Just as homeowners, local government must
comply with rules made by the bureaucrats at
DEP. DEP's current rule regarding water quality
treats all water bodies the same whether they are
retention ponds or lakes.
The Florida Stormwater Association has
stressed "the need to establish a more refined
surface water classification system." The Flor-
ida Stormwater Association has petitioned DEP
for a new rule that clearly sets out different water
quality standards for drainage ditches and reten-
tion ponds than those applied to lakes and rivers.
Orange County's resolution was in support of
that petition.
DEP held a rule development workshop on
Aug. 18, 2009. We were set to go to the meeting
in Tampa and make the case for Orange Coun-
ty's stormwater management efforts. DEP decid-
ed that no action would be taken at the present
time. In the words of UCF's stormwater expert,
Dr. Martin Wanielista, "Managed stormwater is
good water." DEP has been very supportive of
Dr. Wanielista's research to make stormwater
safer. I hope we can get DEP to listen and act
accordingly.

Orange County Commissioner


income tax-retum. Say your personal income
decreased over the prior year, but at the same
time the IRS "increases" their income tax rate.
Technically, you are paying MORE taxes even
though your personal income has decreased. So,
regardless of changes I make to the just value of,
your real estate or tangible personal property, if
you have a higher tax rate, you are paying more
taxes. Period!
Your taxes are 26.9% higher than if the taxing
authority had left its tax rate the same as last year.
Be wary when others start throwing around the
terms just value, market value, assessed value,
homestead differential, 3% cap, 10% cap, etc.,
as though any of them were applicable to mill-
age rates. They are not! Millage rates (tax rates)
are applied against your "taxable value" only.
Four municipalities in Orange County are
proposing their "rolled-back rate" for 2009.
Three other municipalities are proposing a rate
even "higher" than their rolled-back rate. Two
other municipalities are proposing a rate less
than their rolled-back rate but higher than their
prior year tax rate.
By this time, you have received your Notice of
Proposed Property Taxes from my office. There
is a newsletter insert with important information
about what is happening with property values in
2009 and how it affects you, the property owner.
In addition, my website at www.ocpafl.org has
even more valuable information, including a
chart showing which taxing authorities have
proposed tax rate increases. This information
can be found under the "Notice of Proposed
Property Taxes (TRIM) Information" link on the'
home page. Just click on "2009 Proposed Mill-
age Rate Comparison Chart."
If you are concerned about your property val-
ue, please call my office. If you are concerned
about your taxes, call your taxing authority. I en-
courage you'to attend your budget public hear-
ing, whose date, time and place are shown on the
TRIM notice, and let your voice be heard.

Charlie Crist will appoint the perfect senator


By Mary Anne Swickerath

In August of 1991 both of my children left
home in the same week to begin their studies
at the University of Florida. To tell the truth,
my first thoughts were how exciting for them
and how peaceful and quiet for me. Heck, they
were only an hour and a half up the road. They
weren't going thousands of miles away. They
still needed me for support, advice, love.
But I was unprepared for how too quiet the
house became, how much less fun I was hav-
ing, how much spare time I suddenly had. I,
who always considered myself to be a very
unsentimental person, began realizing I was
talking too much to friends about how I missed
my kids. I think it was the eye-rolling.
And I realized I was depressed. I had
thoughts like "What were all those years of
parenthood about? Am I now a discard in my
children's lives?"
This deep sadness lasted to Christmas, when
for some reason it lifted. Maybe because it was
then clear I had not been abandoned. My son
and daughter called and came home when they
could. They invited me up to Gainesville to
hang out with them and their friends (and were
happy I showed up with bags of groceries and
already-cooked pot roasts).
I went to museums, bookstores and lectures
in the O'Connell Center with them; saw Bob
Dylan, The Rolling Stones and Tom Petty con-
certs with them; enjoyed movies and dinners
out with them; talked with them about their
studies. It was so interesting to watch them
becoming adults.
After a year or two of college, they even
showed some slight evidence of homesick-
ness.
One Friday evening, Son and Daughter came

. housing and too many Taco-Bell uirritos. I had
music playing, dinner cooking,; ffo ers and
candles on the table.
Daughter looked at Brother and said, "Why
did we ever leave?"
After earning their degrees, one went to
Michigan to graduate school and the other came
home for two years to start a career. One then
worked in Germany for several years before re-
locating to New York City. The other moved to
Atlanta. Both have successful, creative careers
and interesting lives, and it has been great for
me to be a part of their journeys.
I always told them to go and do, that there
was a big world out there, and they took me
up on it. So I really can't complain. I learned I
don't have to be part of their daily existence to
still be close to them. They just don't need my
financial support any more (what a plus).
Both are now in their upper 30s, and we
talk and e-mail each other two or three times
a week. My daughter calls me from airports
and the back seat of taxis because her job en-
' tails a lot of travel. She has collected so many
frequent-flier miles she furnishes airplane tick-
ets for all of us for family vacations to Puerto
Rico, the Bahamas, a lake house in Michigan,
New York City. It is truly wonderful.
I know now that I had no reason to go
through that three-month depression, and I
wanted to share that fact with all of you par-
Sents who hre packing kids off to college for
the first time. One day, these college kids will
have jobs with benefits (after some boomerang
home for awhile), and they might even buy
you a car. I know someone it happened to. So,
cheer up (and I know that's not easy as they
walk out the door) and enjoy this next phase
of parenthood!

Walters introduce S. Korea


Senior Pastor Phil Walter
of New Horizons Christian
Church in Winter'Garden
and his wife Susan, recently
visited the West Orange Ki-
wanis Club and shared what
they found on their vacation to
South Korea.
Phil and Susan Walter re-
cently visited South Korea
to see their daughter, Rachel,
who is a teacher over there.
The Walters gave an interac-
tive presentation with slides,
potato starch toothpicks that
are biodegradable, several
other show-and-tell items and
some literature from various
attractions in Korea.
They enjoyed coffee from
an envelope, complete with
cream and sugar. The streets
are very clean and crime is al-


most non-existent, so Rachel
can walk around anytime day
or night, going to and from her
tiny apartment to the subway
or to the bus routes. They also
enjoyed a bullet train ride.
When men turn 18 they
must join either the Army for
18 months or the police acad-
emy or they can go to jail.
The apartments are very
small without ovens or dry-
ers. Clothes are draped around
apartments in order to dry.
They are also very healthy due
to their 'diet and the fact that
they walk almost everywhere.
Restaurants use lettuce to
wrap their food in, and folks
eat family style. Occasionally
you will find chopsticks. Also,
food is cooked and kept warm
with brickettes that are heated


to Kiwanians
in a stove and then placed on
the table.
Seoul offers many attrac-
tions for visitors: ancient royal
palaces, gardens and classical
structures, the National Muse-
um and the War Memorial.
The West Orange Kiwanis
Club meets every Wednesday
for a regular club meeting. On
the first and third Wednesdays,
members meet at the IHOP in
Winter Garden at 7:30 a.m.
On the second and fourth
Wednesday of the month, the
club meets for dinner at the
Winter Garden Restaurant at
7 p.m.
SFor more information about
Kiwanis, and volunteering in

Melissa


(Continued from 1A)


But neither Melissa nor her
parents accepted that diagno-
sis: In just a year, this teen-ager
with the two titanium rods, 16
screws and numerous pins in
her neck has learned to feed
herself, brush her teeth, put on
her makeup, write her name
(large but legible), send text
messages on her cell phone and
drive her electric wheelchair.
Two weeks ago, she started
flexing the wrist on her domi-
nant right arm.
At another recent therapy
session, when asked to move
her legs, she put all her effort
into it and her legs actually
"started to tremor and pulse,"
said her mother in an e-mail
update she regularly sends out
to'friends and family.


The long road
In the'months following
her crash, Melissa admitted,
she didn't want to leave the
house.
"I was embarrassed, ashamed
- I had guilt for what I did,"
she said.
It was later revealed that
alcohol had been a factor in
the 2:30 a.m. crash. In the car
with her that night was her best
friend, Lee-Anne DeVitis, who
was also injured.
For the first eight months,
Melissa said, "my goal was to
keep my friends. I didn't focus
on therapy. I just didn't want to
lose my friends."
But then the dreams started
- dreams in which she says
God spoke to her, shared.Isaiah
40:31 with her ("But those who
hope in the Lord will renew
their strength. They will soar
on wings like eagles; they will
run and not grow weary, they
will walk and not be faint."),
told her to be thankful for all
she has, said He would fully
restore her but it would be a.
slow process.
So Melissa started getting se-
rious about her therapy, and it
has been a part of her everyday
life for the last four months.
She stands for one hour in a
standing frame for bone den-
sity.
"I get dizzy if I talk while
standing,-so it's just an hour of
thinking," she said.


Then she puts in an hour and
a half on the arm and leg bike.
The electrodes that are hooked
up to her help her muscles to
involuntarily contract "to cre-
ate a mindset of what my body
used to do,".said Melissa.
Her mom added: "It's to
Wake up, to fire the muscles to
react. We're trying to bring life
back in."
Melissa said her upper stom-
ach muscles are "waking up
and contracting."
She .also works out with
weights strapped to her arms.
And she started aquatherapy
a few weeks ago to loosen
the muscles in her back and
increase her range of motion.
She was excited that she could
feel a burning sensation toward
the top of her chest.
"That's my everyday life,"
she said matter-of-factly.
"Therapy and hanging out with
my home health aide."
The bicycle Melissa spends
so much time on is no ordinary
bike. It and the electrical stimu-
lus machine cost $25,000, and
the family was able to purchase
the equipment because of the
generosity of so many people
in the West Orange community.
A giant yard sale was held a
few weeks after the accident,
which raised more than $4,000.
About a month later, Melissa
Fest, a Saturday music festival
in downtown Winter Garden,
brought in about $30,000.
"I never loved Winter Gar-
den so much in my entire life,"
Melissa said.
There were other fund-raisers
too, including an event spon-
sored by the Adrenaline youth
ministry that netted $12,000
and a recent wrestling benefit
that raised another $2,000.
All this money has gone to-
ward Melissa's recovery and
medical bills.
The family's church, Mosaic
Community Church, contrib-
uted $7,500 for Melissa.and
her mother to fly to Atlanta in
an air ambulance just after the
accident.
As she became more cogni-
tive in the days and weeks fol-
lowing the accident, Melissa
was able to speak in a whisper.
Today, she is a vocal, spirited
teen who wants to share her


'Melissa Walsh and Lee-Anhe DeVitis have been best
friends for years. This photo Was taken to mark 1 year
since the accident that seriously injured both girls and
paralyzed Melissa.


story with others about her
mistakes, her recovery and her
connection with God.
She went to the Winter Gar-
den Rotary Club and the city of.
Ocoee, Mosaic church, Cren-
shaw School and an Adrenaline
youth meeting -- talking about
her experience.

What's ahead?
Melissa is planning to talk
to the students at West Orange
(where she graduated in 2008)
and Olympia high schools in
October. That is Homecom-
ing month, a time when high-
schoolers are more apt to attend
parties and drink alcohol.
What will her message be?
"A lot of parents tell you not
to do something, and it goes
in one ear and out the other,"
Melissa said. "I hope they see
me, 19, just graduated, about to


go to college..\.I'll tell them,
you should always have a des-
ignated driver. I'm not going
to tell you not to drink, but be
responsible with the choices
y6u make. Call your parents
to come pick you up, even if
they get mad at you, because
there can be bad outcomes to
what you do.
"I just want to relate to them
on a personal level," she said.
"Let them know I was where
they are, sitting in the same
seat."
Melissa was able to take one.
course at Valencia Community
College last semester: general
psychology. She actually at-
tended classes with her home
health aide, who was only there
for any physical needs Melissa
might encounter. A fellow stu-
dent took notes on carbon paper
and shared a copy with Melissa.


For tests, she had a scribe who
dictated the answers for her.
Next week, she starts fall
classes and has signed up for
college algebra and freshman
SEnglish. 101.

Top-notch facility
Melissa has been given an
opportunity to work with the
country's best doctors, as she
was recently accepted into
Johns Hopkins University's
Kennedy Kreiger Institute. This
outpatient training facility "will
allow us to learn from the best
in the country what we will
need to get Melissa to the next
level," Sheri Loiacono said.
The cost will run approxi-
mately $20,000, including the
hotel stay, but Loiacono said the
family's health insurance will
cover most of the expenses.
Melissa will attend the in-
stitute in Baltimore in early
January.
Another testament to the
family's faith is the fact that
without the RT300 bicycle and
the stimulus machine - pur-
chased with money donated
from the community, Melissa
would not have been accepted
into the program. After com-
pleting two weeks of intense
therapy and training at Johns
Hopkins, this equipment is
necessary for continuing her'
therapy at home.

A new life
Life goes on, and Melissa
copes the best she can and
hopes for further recovery.
There are moments when the
tears flow, but her faith brings
her back up.
"People ask me how I'm
dealing with it, and I say God.
I'm not dealing with it; God is,"
she said.
"I've always been a Christian
and believed in God, but it was
inithe back of my head - call
im when you ieed Him. Now
Sit 100 percent, all the way."
When this reporter talked
to Melissa, she could see the
determination in her face and
in her eyes.
"I'm not a quad, I'm not
paralyzed," she said with re-
solve. "I'm just Melissa in a
wheelchair, Melissa with a


disability."
On the wrist that she works
so hard to flex is a tattoo, a
present for her 19th birthday in
April. She has the word "hope"
in scripted writing. Her friend,
Lee-Anne, has "faith" on her
wrist, and another close friend,
Kristen Antony, got "love" tat-
tooed on hers.
The Loiaconos say that life
is good, that God is good, and
that He will heal their daugh-
ter. They have hope, and they
have faith.
In the beginning, Melissa
was taking six or seven dif-
ferent types of medicines, her
mother said, but she only takes
one now, a preventative low-
dose anti-seizure medication
following two seizures earlier
this summer.
An update on the family's
Caringbridge Web site last
week shared their testimony,
their trust in God and their
certainty that Melissa will one
day walk again.
Said Sheri Loiacono: "We're
praying our way through it."

Lee-Anne's recovery
Lee-Anne DeVitis was in the
passenger seat when Melissa's
car left the road that night. She
had a broken tailbone and frac-
tured pelvis and spent the next
two months in physical therapy
at an office near Health Central
in Ocoee.
One of the discs in her lower
back is out of place and push-
ing against nerves, "so I still get
pain in my lower back if I stand
for too long or if I'm sitting on
a hard surface," she said.
She said she goes back to the
doctor periodically for check-
ups.
Lee-Anne will start her sec-
ond year at Valencia and is tak-
ing four classes; which she has
done the last two semesters.
Has the accident affected
her life? "Yes, it's completely
changed it. I don't take any day
for granted now. I've learned to
love everything I have and the
fact that I can wake up every
morning."
She added: "My friendship
with Melissa has grown, and I
could not have asked for a bet-
ter best friend."

these groups. We look forward

Picking Up the Towel of Service
As I consider picking up the,towel of
service this week, I am asking the fol-
lowing questions.
1. Is there someone in my neighbor-
hood who could use an act of service?
Do they need a meal, their lawn cut, or
just someone to visit with?
2.As I meet people this week and look
into their eyes, who needs someone to
pause from the busyness of life and
take a few moments to really connect?
3. The Bible calls me to "love my en-
emies": Is there a person or a group
I harbor ill feelings toward? How can
I challenge my heart through an act of
service toward those I struggle with?
4. Am I willing to serve in anonymity
or do I need the pats on the back and
the accolades of others?
5. Where'in my community can I
volunteer? The YMCA? City Gov-
ernment? Seniors First/Meals-On-
Wheels? A church? Food Pantry?
Hospital? ,
6. Have I created some "margins" in
my schedule so I have time to respond
to someone who comes across my path
with a need (Good Samaritan - Luke
10:25+)
7. Have I created boundaries on my
service? Am I willing to scrub toilets
if the opportunity arises?
8. What's my motivation for service?
Is it love for God and others or pos-
sibl. am I merely looking for the good
feeling?
9. Am I willing to be inconvenienced
in my service?
10. What am I willing to make avail-
able in my service? Am I willing to
offer to others my car, a room in my
home, or the extra things I have around
my house?
Pray for me as I'continue this journey
of"picking up the towel of service"I It
is challenging!

Panthers
eye repeat sLHurTTn
district title
For the past two seasons, Dr.
Phillips has said farewell to
high-profile stars destined for
Division I college football pro-
grams and reloaded with equal-
ly talented underclassmen. This
season should be no different as
the Panthers battle to repeat as
Metro Conference and District --
5 champions and make a run at
the state playoffs.
"The expectations for this
year's team are high," said Dale
Salapa, DP's second-year head
coach. "We have had a great
summer, the players are in good a
shape, and I believe we will DP's Charles Favors has the 'eye of the Panther.'
have more depth this season."
After losing 11 players from last year's squad, the Panthers bring back five starters on of-
fense and five on defense who look to maintain the Panthers' swagger.
"We will mostly spread it out on offense and be very aggressive on defense," Salapa said.
Senior wide receiver Kenny Shaw is expected to use his long wingspan and quick stride
to haul in catches and bur opposing defenses again this season. While defenses have their
haids full with Shaw, senior receiver Greg Slones should.be in position to find open spaces
and make big catches.
Balancing PP's passing attack will be a returning tailback tandem that could do even more
damage to opposing defenses. Senior Marvin Ford and junior
Dee Hart will share handoffs at running back. Last year, Hart
scored a stunning 17 touchdowns as a sophomore. .s
As a sophomore and first-year starter at quarterback, Nick .
Patti enters the season as likely DP's biggest question mark. '. ' i 0iet.
Joining him as rising stars counted on to make an impact are Aug. - ' b

Ocoee looking for resurgence
The Knights are relying on a strong senior class to help rebound from last year's disappointing
2-8 season.
Ocoee lost six seniors on offense and five on defense from last year's team, and this fall's lineup
will feature four seniors on each side of the ball joined by returning underclassmen. Coach Clint
Moles hopes the mix of experience and some young, talented players will pay off on the field.
"They have picked up on changes we've made and matured rapidly as a team," Moles said.
.The ground game, Moles said, with key stars at running back and on the offensive line, will be
Ocoee's bread and butter. The amount of yardage and touches collected by seniors D.J. Gary and
Adrian Riley will have a direct relation to Ocoee's success.
"The O-line has gelled well," Moles said. "Gary and Riley give us a run threat that will be our
strength."
Also carrying the ball from the backfield, in addition to passing, will be senior quarterback
Dustin Denman, who Moles credited as a good decision maker. Trenier Orr, a junior wide receiver,
should be among Denman's favorite passing targets.
Offensive guard J.T. Bennett, also a senior, will lead the charge in clearing a path for Ocoee's run-
ners. At his side on the offensive line and ready to make in impact will be junior Colin Johnson.
Seniors Michael Lewis and Nordly Capi will serve as bookends on Ocoee's defensive line, leading
the defense with junior linebacker
Darien Oliver and senior defensive
back Chris Devaughn.
The goal this season, Moles.
said, is to compete with the top
teams in the District 4.
"We end the season with games
against Olympia, Wekiva, East
Ridge and Apopka, so if we grow
the way this team could grow, we
could be in it with a shot at the dis-
trict title at the end of the season,"
Moles said.

West Orange
readyfor big
turnaround
West Orange's prospects can
only improve this fall.
After posting a 1-9 record last
year with a young squad that
featured only seven seniors and
relied heavily on sophomores,
this year's Warriors return 17
starters who are eager to shake
up the District 5 competition.
"We're going to be competi-
tive this year," said WOHS Head
Coach Chip Petree."Our goals Offensive linemen Marcus Ison (left) and Ashanti
to have a winning season and McPhee have been working hard in the weight room.
conipete for a playoff spot."
Senior Keaton Postell is expected to provide many of West Orange's highlights this season.
The tailback has been clocked with 4.4-second speed in the 40-yard dash. In last year's Ole
Orange Crate game finale vs. rival Dr. Phillips, Postell showed off his speed And sharp cuts
by shredding.the district-champion Panthers on an 88-yard touchdown.
Postell, who Petree said is a legitimate Division I college prospect, will show his versatility
by lining up at receiver, quarterback and the cover-cornerback position. Postel will also be a
scoring threat on kickoff and punt returns.
Senior Matt Cappleman, who recently captured first place at the National C mbine Series
kicking competition by launching his kickoffs an average of 60 yards, is considered.one of
the top place kickers in the nation and will give West Orange an advantage in field-position
battles.
Junior quarterback Diego Quintaner survived a year as a sophomore starter and now returns
more poised with a year of experience under his belt. The offensive line will be anchored by
Brian Dieterich, Marcus Ison and Ashanti McPhee. Last year's leading'tackler, junior Alex
Cousins, is moving from safety to linebacker, Petree said, because of his great speed and
football instincts. West Orange is impressed with 'sophomore
Trey Griffey, who Petree said made a lot of plays at receiver
during spring and summer practices.
Those practices have had a great effect on the Warriors. In
his 18 years as a football coach, Petree said, this summer's
offseason conditioning was the toughest he had ever seeen.
Many of last year's underclassmen, he said, have since grown
into physically stronger and more athletic players.
West Orange, Petree said, will employ a variety of run-
oriented I-formations on offense and multiple 3-4 schemes
on defense. 0a


Titan seniors
seek 1st
district title
The Titans finished the 2008
campaign on fire, winning its
final four straight, including
a bowl game, to finish 10-3.
With 14 total starters return-
ing on offense and defense,
including nine seniors, Olym-
pia is poised to produce its best
season in school history.
I feel we have a great team,
and we have a lot of players
with experience," said Bob
Head, Olympia head coach.
"We have high goals and ex-
pectations for the season: Our
No. 1 goal is to win the dis-
trict."
Senior quarterback Trevor
Siemian should be able to build ,
on a productive junior year
with fellow senior standouts
Rashad Lawrence (WR) and Rashad Lawrence makes an over-the-shoulder catch.
Rudy Crowder (WR) catching
passes. Providingpass protection for the Titan spread attack will be senior offensive linemen
Ogan Olamide, Harrison Mathis and Kyle Liquori and sophomore James Hamilton. They'll also
have the duty of opening up running lanes for junior running back Henry Eadjdy and Sanders
Suis, a dual-threat senior who will line up at tailback and receiver.
The senior trio of lineman Roland Gutierrez, linebacker Joey Alarie and defensive back
Donnie Bartolomucci will be depended onto lead the defense. They will be aided in the 3-3
defensive scheme by juniors Corian Hamilton (DB), Deon Green (DL), Daryll Monroe (LB)
and Jaair Young (DB).
Olympia's quest for its first-ever District 5 football cham-
TITANS pionship will'be tested at West Orange, Ocoee and East Ridge

Dr. Phillips High opens with 'Guys and Dolls'


The Dr. Phillips High School
theatre program opens its 2009-
10 season with a. high-spirited
musical comedy. Considered
by many theater experts to
be a "perfect musical," Guys
and Dolls runs Aug. 27-29 at
7 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 30, at
3 p.m.
Damon Runyon created a
musical fable of lovable gam-
blers, cheerful chorus girls and
well-intentioned missionaries
who hope to save their souls, all
set in a New York so far from
the reality of the city that the
setting is simply called "Ru-
nyonland."
The show is filled with musi-
cal favorites such as "Luck Be a
Lady," "Sit Down You're Rock-


ing the Boat" and "A Bushel
and a Peck" and unforgettable
characters such as the enterpris-
ing Nathan Detroit; the loving
and patient Adelaide, who's
been engaged to him for 14
years; high-rolling Sky Master-
son; and Sarah, the Salvation
Army "doll" who is determined
to reform a city filled with sin-
ners.
Other high rollers include
Nicely-Nicely Johnson, Benny
Southstreet, Harry the Horse,
Angie the Ox and the infamous
Big Jule. The musical is the
start of a big season for DP the-
ater as its students are hoping to
travel to Scotland next August
to perform at the Edinburgh
Fringe as part of the American


High School Theatre Festival.
That means a year filled with
numerous.fund-raising activi-
ties and challenging, entertain-
ing shows, including Death ofa
Salesman in October, A Christ-
mas Carol in December and Les
Miserables in the spring.
If you love music, fun and
laughter, come to the Dr. Phil-
lips High School Theater and
enjoy the talented young actors,
singers and dancers who will
make sure the musical stakes
are high as they share the joy
that comes from a "guy who's
only doing it for some doll."
Tickets are $10 and are avail-
able online at dphs.ocps.net or
at the box office the night of
the show.


Frangus Elementary's teachers were treated to breakfast by the PTA. Teachers met at
Perkins Restaurant on Apopka-Vineland Road before heading back to school to plan for
the 2009-10 school year. Pictured are, I-r: Mariel Welch, Joanna Welch, Hilda Oliveras,

St. Andrew School


Letter from new Ocoee Elementary principal


Dear Ocoee Elementary
families:
I am excited to be the new
principal at Ocoee Elementa-
ry! I have been working with
OCPS since 1990. During my
years with the district, I have
served as classroom teacher,
district resource teacher, as-
sistant principal and princi-
pal. This is my 11th year as a
principal. Prior to joining the
Ocoee community, I served as
principal of Michael McCoy
Elementary for six years and
Windy Ridge K-8 School for
four years.
I am impressed by the


achievements of the students
and staff and would like to
congratuate everyone on being
an "A" school for the seventh
year in a row. I know this is the
result of hard work, determina-
tion and much support from
parents and community.
I am also impressed by the
sense of pride demonstrated
by the students, staff and com-
munity through their involve-
ment in beautification projects
around campus. The office and
custodial staff have been busy
preparing for the new school
year. We are also fortunate to
have had volunteers participate


StarChild Academy


in a painting project which en-
hances the inside of our build-
ing.
It is an honor and a privilege
for me to serve the students,
parents, staff and community
of Ocoee Elementary as we
work together to continue the
proud tradition of high expecta-
tions and collaboration. I look
forward to getting to know you
and working closely with you
to ensure a safe and highly suc-
cessful year for our children.

Sincerely,
Sarah Concepcion
Principal


StarChild Academy Winter Garden took part in a festive Fourth of July Parade. Above,

Banner year
Westbrooke Eleinentary
School had a banner inaugu-
ral year that the West Learning
Community can boast about.
When all the FCAT scores
were released, it was evident
that Westbrooke was the No.
2 elementary school in the
district, falling short only to
Avalon Park. Principal Robert
Bixler made it clearfrom the
start that the focus would be
on academics, and it shows as
Westbrooke topped all other
schools in the FCAT science
test. The fourth grade writing
test results were the highest
in the immediate area. The
scores were so strong that they
totaled to push Westbrooke to
one of the top two elementary
schools in the district.
Westbrooke saw an incred-
ible number of volunteers for
a school of only 578. The 375
volunteers boasted 8,559 vol-
unteer hours this year.
"It has been a truly amazing
effort," Bixler said. "It is hum-
bling to see so many people
dedicate their time and energy
to make our school a special
place for kids. It shows the
community wants our school
to succeed and is willing to
get involved to make that hap-


--Wedstbrooke
pen."
Three committees received
a WOW award for the hard
work they did this year. They
were the environmental com-
mittee, chaired by Kim Wright
and Heather Randle; Cash
Back, chaired by Vikki Rogers;
and ways and means, chaired
by Heather Neuman. Rhonda
Moggio was named Volunteer
of the Year. When seeing the
following numbers, those in
the West Learning Community
will understand just how great
their contributions were this
year.
Westbrooke Elementary
Swas brand new this year and
started with a blank slate to
landscape. The school re-
ceived generous plant dona-
tions from local nurseries to go
toward their efforts in installing
a landscape barrier behind
the school and the expanding
Turnpike. ValleyCrest Land-
scape Maintenance, Dykes
Farm, County Ornamentals &
Trees and Greenbriar Land-
scape contributed 233 plants
to make it happen. Megan
Lynch with Biosphere Consult-
ing worked with the school to
recommend native plants that
are drought-tolerant as. well as
attractive to wildlife.


Cash Back had enormous
energy and kept students go-
ing all year long with collect-
ing box tops and Campbell's
labels to raise $2,000 through
this program.
Other achievements includ-
ed obtaining a grant to install
an AED in the school. Never
before have students been
trained in CPR or how to use
an AED. All 48 safety patrols
received,this training from the
Ocoee Police Department.
When evaluated by the Or-
ange County PTA, it was clear
that Westbrooke had an out-
standing year. Penny Baum
was named the Orange County
Partner In Education volunteer
of the year. Other Westbrooke
PTA Awards were: Golden
Early Bird Award, 100 percent
Faculty Membership Award,
100 percent Membership
Award, Community Member-
ship Award and Outstanding
"First Year" PTA award.
This was no ordinary year.
The economy made it hard
for both schools and PTAs to
achieve volunteer hours, do-
nations, income and, thus, ac-
ademic success. Westbrooke
Elementary stood out from
the crowd and persevered to
award-winning levels.


St. Andrew Catholic School students Devin McGinnis, Gabriel .McClary, Lauren Reefer,
Angel Fernandes and Daniel Metgzer perform a trust walk~ during a retreat at Camp Ithiel.
The retreat helped the students prepare for their leadership as 8th-graders.

Windermere Prep middle school students Sho Szczepa-
niuk (left) and Nicholas LaFalce recently returned from
attending the Junior National Young Leaders Conference
in Washington, D.C. The two 6th-graders were selected
by WPS faculty last spring to spend 6, days attending this
summer's conference, themed Voices of Leadership: Re-.
flecting on the Past to Create the Future. The boys devel-
oped their leadership skills through educational activities
and presentations, met with elected officials and Congres-
sional staff members on Capitol Hill and visited the city's
monuments and memorials. The conference, sponsored
by the Congressional Youth Leadership Council, focused
on studying the impact of leadership throughout critical
periods in American history so that students gain an un-
derstanding of the role of individuals in American democ-
racy, as well as the responsibilities of being a leader.
