Representatives from various Oakland
churches and town officials met last week for
a second workshop called in an effort to co-

community. Mosaic Church had asked Oakland
officials to a breakfast meeting to discuss ways
to get more involvemertt between the church

Homeless see hope


- A new weekly
outreach will
provide help each
Tuesday in Winter
Garden.

By Amy Quesinberry Rhode

The new homeless minis-
try in West Orange County is
gaining attention and support
through the dedication of area
pastors, their congregations
and members of the commu-
nity.
West. Orange Church of
Christ has agreed to house
the Matthew's Hope homeless
program and allow it to hold a
weekly ministry and outreach
to the homeless. The prelimi-
nary plan is to be open Tues-
days from 1-8 p.m., said Scott
Billue, the pastor of Next
Community Church and the


man responsible for calling at-
tention to the needs of the ar-
ea's homeless. These men and
women can show up for clean
clothing, haircuts, a shower
and other basic needs.
Two recent events have
shed a bright light on the local
homeless population, which
numbers in the hundreds.
On Jan. 24, a concert that
was originally planned as a
benefit for Next's Relay For
Life team became a joint fund-
raiser for the American Cancer
Society and Matthew's Hope.
David Bailey, a brain cancer
survivor from Virginia, was
invited by Next Pastor Scott
Billue to perform that evening
at the Garden Theatre in Win-
ter Garden. Bailey's perfor-
mance can be described as a
musical story on living life to
its fullest.

little luck keeping them going.
The commissioners' solution is to put to-

everything they provide, from food giveaways

. "A great way to do community work is
through the church," Town Manager Dennis
Foltz said. "We have to have a way to coordi-

County approves 'canoe'

ramp for Keene's Pointe


- Some area
residents still worry
about the wetlands.


ng at By Kathy Aber
cials -The Orange County Board
cer- of County Commissioners
and unanimously approved a per-
mit request by the Keene's
but Pointe Homeowners Associa-
pted. tion last week for a non-mo-
visit torized boat ramp. The BCC
. rve. added a number of restrictions
ion. to the ramp permit, including
a provision that. the permit
would be revoked if "material,
repetitive" violations occur,
such as failure of the HOA to
adequately control access and
4M. prevent motor boats from us-
al year ing the ramp.
year, Orange County District 1


Commissioner Scott Boyd,
who represents the West Or-
ange County area, abstained
from voting on the ramp on
the advice of the county at-
torney stemming from a per-
ceived conflict of interest.
His family's citrus com-
pany had done business with
Keene's Pointe developer
Castle and Cooke in the past,
and the developer still has an
option to purchase more of the
company's land..
Windermere resident Lori
Bradford, a member of the
Butler Chain Concerned Citi-
zens group, told The West Or-
ange Times Monday that she
is satisfied with the BCC vote
because the commissioners
put conditions on the permit.

Windermere council to resume
Marina Bay storm drain discussion


By Kathy Aber

Windermere and Marina
Bay will continue to debate
next Tuesday who is respon-
sible for cleaning a plugged
culvert in the Marina Bay
neighborhood.
. The Marina Bay Homeown-
ers Association believes Win-
dermere took responsibility
for the stormwater pond when
the neighborhood was annexed
more than 20 years ago.
While the town has not ac-
cepted responsibility, the
council voted in December to
clean out the culvert in order
to reduce flooding in the area.
The council proposed charging
the HOA for the maintenance
work, approximately $2,400.
At the Feb. 9 meeting, "the
council will talk about the
HOA's request to split the cost
in some way or whether or not
they want to do that," Town
Manager Cecilia Berniertold
The West Orange Times Mon-


day. "They will discuss who's
going to pay what and when."
The town had scheduled the
work for Jan. 6, and the Times
incorrectly reported in its Jan.
21 issue that the culvert had
been cleaned out at that time.
Bernier said Monday when
she gave HOA president Mike
Slonecker a courtesy notice
that the cleanout would take
police, he responded in an e-
mail saying: "...the HOA de-
- nies permission for the town
and/or anyone operating under
its direction to enter my neigh-
borhood for any purpose what-
soever associated with mainte-
nance as detailed below of the
stormwater drainage system."
After receiving the e-mail
from Slonecker and consult-
ing with council members, she
canceled the culvert work.
The council meeting at
Town Hall begins at 7 p.m.

agenda, go to www.town.win-
dermere.fl.us.

Homicides are relatively rare
in Winter Garden, but a negli-
gent manslaughter case that be-
gan in the city late last year was
recently upgraded to a charge of
first-degree murder.
Sheila Lynn Rosenheimer,
now 47, was arrested by Winter
Garden Police on Nov. 7,2009,
and charged in connection with
the shooting death of Ocoee
resident Craig S. Bonanno, 44.
Investigating officers re-
sponding to a call of a shooting
at Rosenheimer's apartment on
Sand Lime Road in Winter Gar-
den said they found the victim
dead on the floor with a single
gunshot wound to the head.
According to the arrest report
and narrative from a police in-
terview of Rosenheimer, she ad-
mitted shooting Bonanno during
an altercation when he entered
her residence unannounced, but
she alleged that "the gun went
off" by accident.
"She insisted she did not want
to shoot Bonanno, nor did she
intend on pulling the trigger,"
Officer Michael Hogberg said
in the report. Rosenheimer was
booked on a charge of negligent
manslaughter with a firearm.


SHEILA ROSENHEIMER
Last month, an Orange County
grand jury upgraded the charge
to first-degree murder. The in-
dictment handed down was one
of five separate first-degree cas-
es handled by the grand jury in
January. Rosenheimer was re-
booked into the Orange County
Jail on Jan. 12 and is being held'
without bond.
Winter Garden Police Chief
George Brennan told The West
Orange Times last week that
additional information surfaced
after Rosenheimer was first
charged with a lesser offense,
prompting the grand jury review
and first-degree charge.

I Need to Say Goodbye
Although You're with Me
Kenny,
I need to say goodbye although you're with me.
I stand beside your grave, yet you are here.
I miss you terribly and hope you miss me, .
But when I turn to you, you're always near.
I talk to you as though you lived within me,
Not changed but simply moved in from outside.
I know each day you must a little leave me,
But here, as always, you must be my guide.
You were and are and will be, just as ever,
In many minds and hearts, not only mine.
No physical event can such love sever;
Death is a dimension, not a line.
And so goodbye does not mean you are gone:
So long as I still love you, you live on.
Love you forever! Debi
Dad,
We love and miss you more than ever but you
taught us to have strength, and to take care of
each other.
Love,

WO Airport Authority applauds action


' By Jerry Jackson


Old farmland north of Lake
Apopka has taken a step closer
to development as a commer-
cial-industrial zone with a light
aviation focus.
Orange County Commis-
sioners gave preliminary ap-
proval last week for the "Long
& Scott Farms Growth Cen-
ter," clearing the way for the
eventual transition of the land
from agricultural to industrial-
commercial zoning.
"This is a unique economic
opportunity for this area,"
Commissioner Bill Segal said
in the Jan. 26 hearing.
The vote to approve "trans-
mittal" was unanimous, with
Commissioner Fred Brummer
abstaining. Brummer, who rep-
resents the Zellwood-Apopka
area where the 447-acre site is
located, said he has a conflict


because his accounting firm
in Apopka does business with
entities that could benefit from
the development.
A spokesman for privately
held, family-owned Long &
Scott Farms told commission-
ers that it would probably take
another year to get all required
government approvals to begin
any "vertical" development. He
said the build-out, or comple-
tion, could take 20 years.
The proposal, which now
goes to the state Department of
Community Affairs for review,
still faces many hurdles includ-
ing the fact that the site lies
outside Orange County's urban
service area and has few roads,
infrastructure and services. It
also is adjacent to Lake County
and would require coordina-
tion for traffic and other multi-
county impacts.
The property is adjacent to


a small private airport being
considered by the West Or-
ange Aviation Authority as a
possible general aviation "re-
liever" airport.
The public airport author-
ity, created by the legislature
in 1999 to. represent state
and local interests, including
Winter Garden, Ocoee and
Apopka, has shown strong

A weekend of fund-raising for Health Alliance
Rene Reneau of the Health Alliance, Edie Solomon of Winter Garden Village and Daniel
Yates of Health Central Foundation are pictured after the first Community in Pink events
at the Winter Garden Village at Fowler Groves. Many months of planning and effort went
into this event. Health Alliance's Breast Care Project was selected as the recipient of the
community's donations. With the help. of Krista Carter at the West Orange Chamber of
Commerce, a cocktail party with a silent auction was planned as a kick-off. Lisa Cam-
eron, a breast cancer survivor, reminded everyone in attendance of the importance of
getting mammograms and of reminding friends and family to make an appointment as
well. A beautiful Saturday morning found a different group of supporters with sneakers
and drive ready to undertake the 5K and the Fun Walk. People lined up immediately after
'the 5K, prepared to walk the mall looking for their required stamps. Winter Garden Village
considered this event a success and looks forward to making it an annual one.

The Ocoee City Commission race for the
District 3 seat held by Rusty Johnson pits
Johnson against a familiar name to Ocoee
voters: Scott Anderson, former commissioner
from District 2. Anderson was defeated in a
District 2 race last year and now is running
in District 3.
County records show Anderson's home-
stead property is still in District 2.Yet he was
able to qualify as a resident of District 3.
How? By showing a District 3 address on
his voter's registration and driver's license,
according to the Ocoee City Clerk's office.
The McKey Street address is an apartment
Anderson is renting.


The sweet smell of smoked pork drifted
across the church grounds during last week's
hog roast for the homeless, ahd hungry people
drifted in from the pine woods nearby.
- Dozens of men, women and even a few chil-
dren swallowed their pride and sat down for a
free meal of meat, baked beans and bread with
a side helping of guitar music and fellowship.
Free haircuts and fresh clothes were offered,
and a steady stream of people partook. Mem-
bers of various West Orange County churches,
the local VFW and volunteers from the Chris-
tian Service Center in Ocoee helped out at
the Winter Garden church. This is what it's
all about when it comes to offering a helping
hand.
Yes, the people of Haiti are hurting and need
all the support they can get. But there are peo-
ple close to home who are in need too, young
and old, black and white, veterans and more
than a few not long out of jail. The Rev. Don
Kearney, 72, a West Orange resident and for-
mer jail chaplain for 15 years, was at the event
and said he was glad to see such an outpour-
ing of'local support for people, no questions,
asked.
"Some people consider them trash, but that's
wrong," Kearney said." People can turn them-
selves around."
In the past the homeless have gone by many
names: hobo, bum, drifter, vagrant. And yes, a
few choose that life. There is nothing romantic
about homelessness, and those who are home-
less should not be romanticized. It is unhealthy,
for the individual, and for the communities
in which they live and fend for themselves,
whether temporarily or semi-permanently.
Winter Garden Police Chief George Bren-
nan and Ocoee Police Chief Charlie Brown
tell me that the homeless population in West
Orange County is manageable, from a public
safety standpoint, not growing out of control.
Yet both chiefs are rightly concerned, know-
ing full well that the homeless often are vic-


Ocoee City Manager Rob Frank said that
as far as the city is concerned, Anderson is
eligible to run because he "showed proof of
residency in the district" at the time that he
qualified.
The city does not mandate a minimum time
to live in a district before being able to run,
such as six months or a year, as some cities
require, Frank said.
But Anderson's residency issue does raise
questions that will have to be answered in
time, and to the satisfaction of voters. Ander-
son may meet the letter of the law, but how
about the intent, or spirit, of the law? District
3 voters will decide on March 9.


tims of crime, or in some cases, turn to crime
to survive.
So while the homeless in our midst should
be fed .and clothed and brought in from the
cold, the goal, ultimately, should be to end
their homelessness. For their sake, and for the
good of the communities they drift into and out
of with the wind.

And furthermore
...Jim Gleason, the former Ocoee resident,
commissioner and city manager who now is
city manager in Chamblee, Ga., spent.a year in
Iraq trying to help stabilize local governments.
His work was on behalf of the International
City/County Management Association and
its Iraq Local Governance Program. Gleason
recently shared some of his experiences in
Kirkuk and close calls in Baghdad's Green
Zone with ICMA's PM Magazine....
...More than 100 people attended the Friends
of Lake Apopka meeting last week at Tanner
Hall in Winter Garden, and founder Jim Thom-
as was elected president, a position he has held
before and knows very well. He also knows a
lot of the history and "pre-history" of the big
lake and gave a report on some of the original
residents who left spear points, pottery shards
and arrowheads as evidence around the shore-
line. I'll report mbre on that later...
...The 2nd Annual Uncle Don's Chili
Cookoff in Winter Garden was a- blast, and
by my calculation, attendees tasted their way
through more than 80 gallons within a couple
of hours. They don't need me to toot their horn,
but here's hoping that next year's competition
is even bigger, and beanier. A lot of the con-
testants swear by the Texas tradition that chili
has beef and no beans, and, yes, it's tasty that
way, but beans are doggone healthy. You know
the old saying: beans, beans, good for the heart
but they make you.. .smart. At least that's the'
version I told my kids.


Where does Anderson reside?

Boy Scouts of America celebrating 100 years


The Boy Scouts of America was founded 100
years ago on Feb. 8,1910. However, it was not
until 1922 that the Central Florida Council was
established. This year the Central Florida Coun-
cil celebrates 88 years of service to our youth.
Scouting in the West Orange County and
South Lake County areas offer four programs
for the youth to join and experience Scouting
and life skills. The first is Cub Scouts, which is a
year-round family- and home-centered program
that develops ethical decision-making-skills for
boys in the first through fifth grade (or who are
7, 8, 9, and 10 years old). Activities emphasize
character development, citizenship training and
personal fitness.
Boy Scouts, also a year-round program, de-
signed for boys 11 through 17 years old, is de-
signed to achieve the aims of Scouting through a
vigorous outdoor program and group leadership
with the counsel of an adult Scoutmaster.
Venturing, a coed program, for young men
and women who are 14 (and have completed the
eighth grade) through 20 years of age was de-
veloped to provide positive experiences through
exciting and meaningful youth-run activities
that help them pursue their special interests,
grow by teaching others, and develop leader-
ship skills.
Finally, Exploring is a high-school based pro-
gram for teens. Exploring is part of the Learning
for Life, the Boy Scouts' career and character
education subsidiary program. It is open for
young men and women who are 14 (and have
completed the eighth grade) or 15 through 20
years old. Each Explorer group matches the
interests of youth with the adult expertise and
program resources of the organizations in their
communities. In West Orange and South Lake
Counties the Explorer groups include Fire &
Emergency services, Police, Aviation, Veteri-
nary Sciences and Computers.
Community Service projects have always
been a part of Scouting. The idea of service
is included in the Scout Oath in which every
week Scouts promise to "...help other people
at all times...." The National Office of the Boy


Scouts of America launched an initiative with
the Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity and
the America Red Cross called Good Turn for
America. This is the .largest collaborative effort
ever among not-for-profits.
The Central Florida Council was called upon
by the food banks to help fill their empty shelves
during the annual Scouting for Food drive. The
drive collected more than 620,000 pounds of
food in a single day. More than 10,000 Scouts
and volunteers participated in this Good Turn
for America project and provided more than
60,000 hours.
Every year on the first weekend of May, area
Scouts present a show. In celebration of the
100th anniversary this a communitywide event
where Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers and
Explorers demonstrate to parents, friends and
the general public that Scouting is a great train-
ing ground for the youth of America. It consists
of live demonstrations and exhibits displayed
by packs, troops, crews and posts from Apo-
pka, Clermont, Lockhart, Mascotte, Minneola,
Montverde, Oakland, Ocoee, Pine Hills, Winter
Garden, Zellwood and other local communities.
These demonstrations and exhibits emphasize
the skills and activities of the Scouting program.
This year's event will be held, Saturday, April
30, at UCF Bright House Stadium.
Scouting is alive and well in South Lake and
West Orange counties, currently supporting 64
Scout units sponsored by surrounding church-
es, community organizations and schools.
This includes 2,000 youth and 600 adults. The
Scoutreach Division provides an additional 200
youth at risk in the Apopka community with'
the Scouting program. These Scouts would not
enjoy scouting without this added support.
Organizations and/or families interested in
Scouting should contact the local Scouting rep-
resentative at Central Florida Council, 407-703-
0261 Antoine.LaFontant@Scouting.org, or visit
the Web site at www.cfcbsa.org.
It's never too late to join Scouts, have fun
with your family, and improve your commu-
nity.

A


Kensington Church, founded
almost 20 years ago in Troy,
Mich., is making plans to open
a church campus in Winter Gar-
den, which would be the first lo-
cation outside Michigan for the
non-denominational Christian
church.
A site for the Winter Garden
church has not yet been selected,
but dozens of church members
who have already moved to
the Orlando area and held ser-
vices in temporary locations are
aiming for a September public .r
opening.
Kensington member Deb Oli- I
verio said she and her husband
sold their Michigan home of
28 years and moved to a home
near Winter Garden about four
months ago. to help with the ex-
pansion into Florida.
"We've prayed, and we feel
strongly that this is where we
are being led to serve," Oliverio
said.
She said the expansion is be- d
Sing called Kensington Orlando,
because Michigan families
recognize the Orlando name.
Kensington's main church and t
administrative offices are in
Troy, Mich., near Detroit, and i
it also Holds services at four
other "campuses" near Detroit,
in high school auditoriums.
Oliverio said Winter Garden's f
campus is expected to be in a
permanent building rather than i
school auditorium.
"We want to be. a church for
people who don't like church,"
said Florida Campus Pastor 1
Kevin Valentine. "But more than p
that, we want to be a church that
makes the community a better.
place because we are here."
Kensington Orlando team
members have hit the ground
running. Since Kensington
Church members started mov-
ing to Florida this past summer,
team members have participat- t
ed in monthly service projects
around Winter Garden and the
Greater Orlando area. Dur-
ing the Christmas season, they f
partnered with the city of Winter I
Garden to help stage the floats ,
for the parade, and they filled
a last-minute volunteer gap for
Light Up Winter Garden after it
was rescheduled due to rain.
On a recent weekend, while
several volunteers helped unload
another family who has moved
down as part of the launch team,
others joined forces with the
Fuller Center for Housing to help
paint a house under renovation
in Orlando. The Fuller Center
for Housing of Central Florida
is the local chapter of a national
organization that specializes in
renovating and building homes
for people in the community
who are in need.

Sikes said the newly reno-
vated theater generates revenue
through ticket sales while the
museums rely solely on mer-
chandise sales, corporate do-
nations, grants and local com-
munity philanthropists.
Two advisory boards report
to the Heritage Foundation
board, and the board overseeing
the museums has been tasked
with the challenge of figuring
out how to one day be able to
afford a paid director, Sikes
said.
"But that's well into the fu-
ture," he said.
The Foundation Board is
committed, he said, to avoid
going into debt for operations,
and the difficult decision to end
Salata's employment had. to be
made on that basis.
"We have a responsibility to
maintain a balanced budget,"
said Sikes, an attorney who has
a corporate and civil law office

Oakland Police Dept. honors officers for work in 2009


Opaland Police Chief Tim Driscoll has
recognized the police department's Offi-
cer of the .Year and Reserve Officer of the
Year for 2009. He presented plaques and
certificates at the regular Oakland Town
Commission meeting on Jan. 26.
Joshua Smith was named Officer of the
Year. He has been with the department for
more than four years and is now trained as
a field training officer.
In the last half of the year, he assisted
in multi-agency DUI Wolfpacks and pre-
sented traffic and DUI training classes to
Oakland's Citizen Police Academy.
In December, he assisted with the ini-"
tial investigation of a case that recovered
thousands of dollars worth of stolen prop-


erty in the town of Oakland from residents
of Winter Park. He assisted WPPD in the
identification and arrest of a suspect who
currently sits in the Orange County Jail
charged with six residential burglaries and
potentially more charges forthcoming.
Detective John Peek was recognized as
Reserve Officer of the Year. Throughout
2009, he formed alliances with other lo-
cal agencies, that have proven essential
in developing leads and evidence to solve
several crimes in Oakland and the sur-
rounding area. He played a large role in
solving several burglary cases in Winter
Garden involving Oakland residents. He
also organized undercover drug operations
that led to several more Oakland arrests.


He worked two attempted homicides in the
town, clearing them both.
Peek taught investigation during the two
CPA classes and conducted three large and
detailed internal investigations. And he
did all this while donating his minimum
monthly required uniform patrol hours as
a reserve officer.
Chief Driscoll also presented a certificate
of appreciation to C. Stewart Watson of the
U.S. Public Health Service for assisting the
Oakland Police Department during the last
three years with its annual Christmas food
basket program.
Each year, the organization collects more
than 100 pounds of food for needy Oakland
families.

There's an old sinkhole in preserve Sign up to help at


By Peggy Sias Lantz
Sinkholes recently have been
popping up or rather down
in roads, major highways,
backyards and probably deep
in the woods somewhere.
Sinkholes occur when the
roof of a cavern in the lime-
stone base underneath Florida
collapses. Some are so small
they might not even be recog-
nized as a sinkhole. Some are so
large and spectacular that they
swallow trees and houses.
The caverns are caused
by acidic rainwater seeping
through the sandy soil, which
eats away the soft limestone
underneath. As long as the
caverns are filled with water,
or the limestone roof is still
strong enough, everything at
ground level is fine. But if wa-
ter is pumped out of the aquifer,
to water strawberries or orange
groves in massive amounts to
protect them from freezing or
on lawns during dry weather,
the caverns are left empty of
their watery support, and the
soil above becomes heavy with
water.
Then the sinkholes might
slowly subside or suddenly
collapse.
Most of Florida's lakes are


sinkhole lakes. Other sinkholes
might be dry or with water at
the bottom. Many are ancient.-
.Many occur in high, dry, san-
dy areas. Sinkholes Can oc-
cur any time, anywhere in
Florida. Though sinkholes are
not unique to Florida, more of
them occur here than any other
state.
Sinkholes provide a new
temperature-controlled habi-
tat, where plants are protected
from drying winds, moisture
may seep through the sides, and
ferns, trees and other moisture-
loving plants grow, birds nest,
and other animals find refuge.
Near one of the upland trails
at Oakland Nature Preserve, an
old sinkhole is filled with large
trees that like the moisture, at
the bottom maples, popash,
black gum and Carolina willow.
No one knows how deep it is.
During the preserve's second
annual open house'Feb. 6 from
10 a.m: to 4 p.m., hikers on the
guided walk on the upland trails
will be shown this feature.
Visit www.oaklandnaturep-
reserve.org for directions and
other information about the pre-
serve and the open house.
Peggy Lantz is a member of
the board of Oakland Nature
Preserve.


Wine-tasting planned in Oakland
The town of Oakland and HAPCO Music Foundation will host
a wine-tasting fund-raiser Feb. 13 from 7- 9 p.m. at the Town

of arts in the town. The event will have Ocoee High School Jazz
Band ensemble and Violinist Neal Phillips performing, and local
artist Everett Spruill will display his top paintings.

mation at joseph.mcmullen@wellcare.com or 407-781-5152.

Dr. Phillips


ruhn sworn in
as League of
Cities president
Windermere Mayor Gary
Bruhn became president of
the Tri-County League of Cit-
ies when he was sworn in by
Windermere Town Attorney
Thomas Wilkes at Town Hall.
The Tri-County League of
Cities is an organization of
municipal government offi-
cials from Orange, Osceola and
Seminole counties striving to
improve the effectiveness of
municipal government.
"It is an honor to be able to
represent all of our municipali-
ties in Central Florida," said
Bruhn. "Serving as president
of the Tri-County League of
Cities will be a challenge. The
world our local governments
knew two or three years ago is
completely different from what
we are dealing with today.


Gary Bruhn is sworn in as president of the Tri-County
League of Cities by Town Attorney Thomas Wilkes.


"We have revenues cut in
half and the economic condi-
tions are challenging to say
the least," he said. "We must
continue to provide the ser-
vices, the safety and the fiscal
responsibility our residents
expect."


Bruhn also serves as the
chairman of both the Orange
County Counicil of Mayors
and the Municipal Advisory
Committee to Metroplan, the
metropolitan traffic planning
organization for Orange, Os-
ceola and Seminole counties.

Volunteer Program, and the Orange County Environmental Protection Divi-
sion. The Cub Scouts labeled 23 storm drains in Bay Vista Estates in Dr.
Phillips and distributed more than 200 door hangers to educate residents on
the importance of storm drains in the protection of natural waterways because
stormwater runoff is the most common source of water pollution.

10A The West Orange Times Thursday, February 4, 2010


Oakland
The group is creating a list
of'eyety church in town and
contact information for each.
There are roughly a dozen. The
next step is to identify which
programs and services are of-
fered and where and when they
take place. Then, the group and
the commission can look at the
possibility of combining them
in one location.
One example is the town's
inaugural summer enrichment
program last year. It was popu-
lar with Oakland families, and
participation was high. But what
if the town's resources were
pooled with those at Mt. Zion
AME Church, which also offers
a summer program?
Mayor Kathy Stark said she
would be in favor of folding
the town's program into the
church's this summer.
Town officials think these
events have a much better
chance at succeeding if residents
are invited to one location.
Several in attendance agreed
that a neutral area that is not tied
to any particular church or sec-
tion of town would be ideal.
Another suggestion Stark
wants to pursue is the creation
of a. community garden similar
to the one in Winter Garden.
"Aside from growing veg-
etables, it's growing the com-
munity together," Stark said.
The town has already identi-
fied a suitable piece of land -
the right-of-way on Railroad
Avenue that it would donate
for the garden.
Other needs identified include
"a computer room in a general
location," Commissioner Mona
Phipps said; and job training,
healthcare, education and as-
sistance with food and cloth-
ing, said Jacki Farley, the lo-
cal service director at Mosaic
Church.
Pastor Ron Meizer of Mt.
Zion wants to see field trips
and activities for senior citizens,
who, he said, are tired of hearing
guest speakers talk about diabe-
tes and stroke.
The group will hold its work-
shops at 6 p.m. on the fourth
Tuesday of each month. At the
next regular Town Commis-
sion meeting Feb. 9 at 7 p.m.,
attendees will discuss the sum-
mer program and the commu-
nity garden.
After the workshop with the
churches, the Oakland Town


(ContinuedfromlA) Rosen's Haiti relief effort makes headway


Commission held its regular
meeting.
Scott Modesitt of Summit
Professional Services, updat-
ed the town on the status of
its Community Development
Block Grant application. The
deadline is April for the 2009
grant cycle, he said, and a sec-
ond cycle will be available in
September. Municipalities that
receive the April grant are not
eligible to apply for the one in
the fall.
According to Modesitt, the
state should have released about
$30 million in grant money
more than a year ago but there
were changes to the application
and rules.
The town is applying for a
housing grant of $600,000 for
rehabilitation and rebuilds. Or-
ange County has pledged ad-
ditional funds if the town gets
the grant.
If the town receives a sepa-
rate grant through the Florida
Recreation Development As-
sistance Program, the money
will be used to renovate Hull
Avenue Park.
In other business, the elected
officials:
voted to change the util-
ity disconnect process. The
commission originally wanted
to change the schedule from
Monday-through-Friday cut-
offs to Monday only, but Kiana


Hagley, water clerk, said that
complicates billing. She rec-
ommended water shutoffs from
Monday through Thursday. That
way, no one is disconnected on
Friday and forced to go an en-
tire weekend without water. The
commission voted to switch to
a Monday-through-Thursday
schedule.
learned the tree removal at
the Motamassek canal has been
rescheduled for Feb. 13-15. The
roads will be closed on those
days so crews can take down
the giant oak. The tree was
originally going to be removed
last month, but the work had to
be postponed because of severe
weather.
Clay Ferrara, the director of
education at the Oakland Nature
Preserve, has asked that a cross
section of the widest part of the
tree be saved for the education
building at ONP.
The rest of the tree will be
chipped, and residents will be
able to haul away the chips for
landscaping.
looked at preliminary design
changes to the town's patrol
cars, which were last altered in
2001. Police Chief Tim Driscoll
said several officers came to
him with the suggestions, and he
told them to find the funding. So
they did, and several local body
shops are donating their services
to repaint the vehicles.


As relief efforts continue
in Haiti, Orlando hotelier and
philanthropist Harris Rosen is
continuing his local fundrais-
ing effort, having raised almost
half of his $1 million goal for
a long-term "Relief-Rebuild-
Sustain" program.
This is not the first time
Rosen has spearheaded relief
programs for Haiti. During
the past decade, his founda-
tion has donated and provided
door-to-door delivery of edu-
cational and medical supplies,
and raised funds to purchase
and deliver more than 200 wa-
ter filtration systems to towns
throughout. Haiti. Approxi-
mately 30 percent of Rosen
Hotels & Resorts' employees
are from Haiti or are of Haitian
descent.
With 100 percent of the do-
nations to the Harris Rosen
Foundation going to relief and
rebuilding efforts in Haiti, do-
nations from the community
have been ongoing. Students
from Orlando's Lake Highland
Preparatory School presented
Harris Rosen with a check for
$116,000 that they collected
by conducting a Spirit Day for
Haiti. According to a school
spokesman, a Spirit Day nor-
mally yields around,$ 1,000, but
both students and their parents
took seriously the opportunity
to make an impact through

Rosen's relief and rebuild-
ing program. After learning
about her school's fundraiser,
first-grader Shasha Nichoson,
6, asked her friends to bring
money for Haiti to her birthday
party in lieu of gifts. She raised
$52 for the effort.
Along with money, the Har-
ris Rosen Foundation has also
collected 30,000 pounds of
supplies for Haiti, including
palletes of batteries and flash-
lights, towels, hygiene items
including 50,000 bars of soap,
first-aid kits and other emer-
gency items which will be de-
livered within the week.
Rosen's "Relief-Rebuild-
Sustain" program will address
the population's short and
long-term needs in several
phases. Phase One will focus
on medical supplies, particu-
larly antibiotics, to help control
and prevent infectious diseases
which could prove catastrophic
in the coming weeks. Rosen
will place his own people on
the ground in Haiti, as well as a
small fixed-wing aircraft and a
helicopter to facilitate delivery
of these urgently needed medi-
cal, supplies, wherever they are
needed.
Phase Two will focus on
ways to address rebuilding and
sustaining, including identify-
ing ways to design and con-
struct sturdier buildings dur-


ing Haiti's rebuilding phase.
Rosen will soon unveil plans to
manufacture and deliver com-
pact, eco-friendly, earthquake-
and-hurricane-resistant houses,
called "Little Haiti Houses."
The sustainable homes, rang-
ing from 350 to 700 square feet
would be made of metal frame
construction and feature roof-
top solar panels and a turbine
for electricity. Ethanol-based
fuel for cooking would be de-
rived from sugar cane, jatropha
and/or switch grass, which are
all easily grown in Haiti.
The small family homes
would be organized in pods of
100 to 150 and "sold" to Hai-
tian families for $10,000 or
less, with full repayment over
25, 50, 75 or 100 years with
one percent interest. Rosen also
has plans to open a citizens'
bank in Haiti to finance the
mortgages. That money for the
micro loans will stay in Haiti
and be used for new business
ventures there to benefit the
Haitian citizens.
Monetary donations to the
"Relief-Rebuild-Sustain" pro-
gram are still being accepted
and may be mailed to the Har-
ris Roseri Foundation, memo:
Haiti Relief, 9840 International

Billue became deeply in-
volved last month in the Freeze
Warning Ministry, a new pro-
gram to shelter and feed home-
less men and women when
temperatures drop below 40
degrees.
It was there that he met Butch
Preston and John Adams, home-
less men living in the woods in
Winter Garden and Ocoee. The
men could play guitar and sing,
so Billue invited them to open
for Bailey. They call them-
selves The Boys in the Woods,
and their simple stage presence
is limited to their guitars and a
tiny Charlie Brownish tree that
Adams plunked between their
stools.
Preston andAdams performed'
four songs for the crowd, sing-
ing and playing Bob Seger's
Turn the Page, Preston's ver-
sion of The Band's The Wait
and a two originals written.by
Preston (Rocky Mountain Blues
and Simple Man). Behind them,
pictures of homeless men and
women flashed on the big
screen.
Bailey was up next, but be-
fore he started, Preston asked to
read a moving poem he wrote
about Bailey and how his visit
to the homeless camp changed
his life and inspired him to write
music again.
Bailey played guitar and
shared his story until 10:30
p.m. He asked Preston to help
him close the concert, so Preston
played another original, A Song
for a Lady.

and a djemba.
A total of 239 tickets were
sold at $5 apiece for the perfor-
mance, and another 20 were giv-
en free to some of the homeless
people in the area. Raffle tickets
were also sold. After expenses,.
Billue said, the total raised for
the cancer and homeless orga-
nizations was $1,500.
The Freeze Warning pro-
gram's name has been changed
to Matthew's H6pe to better re-
flect the year-round ministry the
volunteer team plans to continue
beyond the cold snap.
In an effort to bring more dol-
lars to West Orange County to
help the homeless, the Home-
less Service Network conducted
a head count last Wednesday at
Church of Christ of West Or-
ange. The HSN receives grant
money from the federal Hous-
ing and Urban Development
program to support local non-
profit agencies.
Matthew's Hope volunteers
held an outdoor event to co-
incide with the survey that in-
cluded a roasted hog, a shower


trailer for those wanting to get
cleaned up, a haircut station
with several local hairdressers
wielding scissors and a room
full of clean clothes, shoes and
blankets for the attendees to get
what they needed.
Nearly 200 people were sur-
veyed at the event. Veterans
Administration representatives
assisted a few vets, and the
Hope Team provided medical
and dental services.
Later, as the evening was
winding down and volunteers
were breaking down the tables,
they were serenaded by Pres-
ton's voice and guitar.

What's next
Cathy Jackson, director of
HSN, will be at the West Or-.
ange Church of Christ in the
,next few weeks to discuss the
possibility of Matthew's Hope
hosting a program called Project
Homeless Connect. Basically,
it mimics the intent of the hog
roast but on a much larger scale.
Services such as Social Security,
legal assistance; medical evalu-


nations and help for veterans are
just a small part of what would
be offered.

thew's Hope or to volunteer

Ramp


"I am thankful they put the
restrictions on it," said Brad-
ford. "I am grateful that the
ramp could be removed if they
launch larger boats."
Bradford said she is still
concerned about the adjacent
wetland. She and other Butler
Chain residents voiced oppo-
sition to the ramp at a recent
community meeting, saying
this permit would set a prec-


edent for all wetlands around
the Butler Chain:
Windermere Mayor Gary
Bruhn said in an e-mail to
the Times,"I think the Com-
missioner's stipulations will
help in awareness of the rules
by the added penalties. But I
think putting a boat ramp of
this size on a small private
lake and saying it is only for
non-motorized use will lead


to infractions down the road. I
believe Castle and Cooke has
the right to build what they
want on their property. But en-
vironmentalists and Keene's
Pointe homeowners would be
better served by building this
ramp directly on lake front
property that they own."

cated, is separated from the

Titans repeat as


district soccer champs


By Chris Silveira
Penalty kicks late in the second half of
their semifinal game against Ocoee and in
the final vs. West Orange last Friday night
helped propel Olympia to its second con-
secutive Class 6A District 5 championship.
The Titans and-Warriors both advanced to the
regional quarterfinals set for this Thursday,
Feb. 4. .
"The game could have gone either way,"
said Olympia Head Coach Chris Mills. "I
thought both teams played excellent, and
we've been graced with penalties, but I think
they were deserved, and I'm just pleased for
the boys and for the school."
West Orange Head Coach Scott Fisher had
another perspective on the penalties, and his
frustration with an official resulted in a yel-
low card late in the second half after War-
rior midfielder Drew Spragg was hit with a'
yellow card. *
"My guys played hard and I'm proud of
them, and I thought we had a good chance


upon him," said Mills. "I think he was a
little bit fresher than most of the players out
there because he didn't play the whole game
the other night because he had two yellow
cards. That was in his favor, and I thought
he was excellent at running at players and
he drew the penalty as well. He's impossible
to defend one-on-one and he showed us that
tonight."
The penalty on Cunha came with less than
10 minutes left to. play in the second half, as
he pushed the ball into the left side of the
goal box. Robert Kirkwood stepped up, like
he did against Ocoee in the semifinal, and
sealed the win by drilling the ball into the net
from the midline spot 12 yards out.
. "He's our go to guy for penalty kicks,"
said Mills. "He doesn't think about it. He
just steps up and bangs them in."
Despite his issues with the officiating,
Fisher was upbeat after the game and posi-
.tive about his team and their chances of ad-
vancing in the regional playoffs.

body who comes out of this district I think is
going to go pretty deep in the playoffs."
Rivalry aside, -both coaches were quick to
offer nothing but praise with assessing the
other team's abilities.'
"No matter where you go there are two
or three of them there," said Fisher, "They
hustle to every ball and you never have a
free look at anything. They have good ball
skills and do a good job in the open field in
finding open guys and they're a tall team so
they win a lot of balls in the air."
Mills was equal in his praise and offered
an insight into why games between these two
teams are often so spirited.


. "They're fast and their team speed is ex-
cellent," said Mills. "They have a couple
of great players through the midfield, Josh
Fusan and Drew Spragg, who are tough to
defend and you have to know where they
are at all times. And Cody Uzcatagui is a
gieat goalie:. We all know those kids from
club soccer and that's why it's so fun the
rivalries. They're on the same team in club
and then they get to play against each other
in high school, and that's- why the games
are so great."
With playoff wins this week, another great
game between the two teams could take place
next Tuesday, Feb. 9, at Olympia.

SThe Metro conference wrestling championship held this past
weekend at Cypress Creek high school was split for the first time
into West and East divisions, with the top four wrestlers in each
weight class from those divisions meeting in the Tournament of
Champions on the second day of the meet.
Area wrestlers who took home championships include Olym-
pia freshman Robbie Potts, who won the 103 pound overall.
Metro title Saturday afternoon is a close 5-2 match over West
Orange's Tony Butera. The Titans Josh Ceballos also won an
overall Metro title at 152 pounds.
"Robbie and Josh are two of the hardest working guys on our
team," said Olympia head coach Jeremy Bourst. "They have
definitely earned their titles and we couldn't be happier for
them."
"It feels great because all my hard work finally paid off," said
a tired but beaming Potts after receiving his first place medal.
"I'm hoping to do just as good at districts and regions because
that's the goal right now."
The strength of the Dr. Phillips team lies in the lighter weight
classes and it played out that way as the Panthers brought home
four over all Metro championships and one runner up on Satur-


day. Zach Whitmire (3:02 pin at 112), Jared Watkins (11-2 at
119), Janz Lado (11-4 at 125) and PJ Fronsdahl (17-2 at 130)
took first place and Austin Hellinger (145) placed second. All
five wrestlers took home Metro West titles the day before and the
team tied West Orange for second place in the Metro West.
The Warriors continue to be the surprise of the wrestling sea-
sori and Kyle Keopperf avenged a loss in the 160 pound weight
class in Metro West final on Friday by beating Edgewater's Jul--
lian Mitchell on Saturday to become the All-Metro champion.
Daniel Duran was the Metro West heavy weight champion and
Jonathan Vazquez, Joe Campisi, Bryan Dieterich and Duran all
took third inthe overall.
"FrQm a coaching perspective, you always 'want to see your
team do better...even when they win," said West Orange coach
Kristen lannuzzi. "There were some good things about the week-
end, but there was also a lot we ieed to improve on before dis-
tricts. We are very much a team-oriented program, and they do
better when they come in as a force instead of as individuals."
Bourst summed up what lies ahead for wrestlers on all three
teams at the district tournament this Saturday, hosted by Dr.
Phillips in their gym apply named, "House of Payne".
"This is when it really counts. If you don't place, your season
is over."


Lady Lions clinch No. 2 seed

match-up 52-42.



DP girls basketball finishes perfect
regular season, prepares for playoffs


In one of the area's most
highly anticipated matchups
of the varsity girls basketball
season, No. 1 Dr. Phillips High
held off No. 3 Father Lopez,
71-68, to cap the program's
first undefeated regular season
(25-0) in school history.
Sydnei McCaskill opened
the game with a pair of three
.pointers, and Brittany Marshall
added another as the Lady Pan-
thers started out hot with a 24-
16 lead after the first quarter
and increased the lead to nine,
39-30, at the half. Hannah
Schaible, who finished with a
career-high 27 points and 11
rebounds, was a perfect 6-6 at
the free throw line in the third
as DP held serve, 50-42 at the
end of three.
Lopez (22-3) made a run in
the fourth quarter, however,


with an 11-2 run out the gate.
A huge three by McCaskill (11
points, nine assists, four steals)
and baskets by Schaible and
Lexi Brown (13 points, 11 as-
sists) staved off the comeback
as the Panthers closed out the
season with their most impres-
sive win to date.
Senior Brittany Marshall
was perfect from the field in
the second half to finish with
12 points and eight rebounds.
The DPjunior varsity girls bas-
ketball squad also closed out
its season with a strong vic-
tory, 53-35 over Father Lopez.

High school softball

preview 2010


By Chris Silveira


The 2010 high school softball season starts
next week, and the four local 6A schools Dr.
Phillips, Ocoee, Olympia and West Orange -
make up half of a very competitive District 5
that also includes, Apopka, East Ridge, South
Lake and Wekiva.
The district is loaded with talent from travel
softball teams and many teammates will face
each other in the coming months in hopes of
finding themselves in the district championship
game hosted this year by South Lake on April
23.

West Orange seniors look
to pass on a winning tradition
The five seniors on Coach Bobby Brewer's
Warrior team Molly Billue, Kelly Lopez, Val
Proulx and team captains Bree Brasch and Missy
Harvey are all four-year starters who helped
revive the West Orange softball program after
a few down years. They feel there is. much to Senior Kelly Lopez, a three sport athlete w
prove in their last season, as they will play for
the first time without a dominant pitcher in the extra dimension of speed on the bases alo,
circle and will need to provide additional of-
fensive punch in their lineup after losing three
key players to graduation.
"We lost our three best offensive players plus we lost the middle of our defense with pitcher,
shortstop and centerfield, so those are three hard spots to fill," said Brewer.
Taylor Fawbush, one of the most feared pitchers in Central Florida the past two years, was
one those players and is now intimidating hitters in college. While her bat and presence in the
pitching circle will be missed, Brewer has a lot of confidence in his defense, and that the current
crop of pitchers are ready to step up.
"Taylor was the face of our program," said Brewer. "Her reputation throughout the county was.
such.that many times the team on the other side was already beat before we took the field, so I
don't think we are going to have that kind of aura about,us. A lot of people think we are going
to have a rebuilding type season and are thinking now it's their turn, but we have a lot of older
girls who are very experienced. I think we will.be a better defensive club than we were last year
because we have so much experience coming back." ..
Who will Brewer hand the ball to as the season begins?
"Molly, Kelsey LaNeave and Brianna Sniffen will all probably see some mound duty with
Molly getting most of it .to start the season. Molly's got a vinegar to her, so with the defense
we're going to put on the field, we'll be ok."
West Orange is one of the healthiest programs in the area with a large group of freshmen who
will make up the bulk of a junior varsity team that would give many varsity teams trouble on
the field.
"The freshmen
't group we have are
Absolutely fantastic
S.... and are as good as
I've ever seen," said
Brewer. "The pro-,
gram is always going
to be in good shape at
West Orange because
of the community.
Almost everyone in
our program' plays
travel ball, and we're
so lucky with Wind-
ermere Little League
because they develop
so many players over
there that come our
way."
Brewer expects
his five seniors to
lead the way as the
Warriors contend for

"They all work
hard in the classroom and on the ball field," said Brewer. "They are showing all the younger
girls how it's done here at West Orange. Throughout time, this program has been established
and they take a lot of pride in keeping it that way. We want to be one of the top programs that
everyone is talking about every year, and those fives seniors have been able to do that and they're
showing the younger girls the kind of work it takes to continue that. They're showing them that
basically it's just a bunch of hard work."
The Warriprs will get a chance to see how much their hard work has paid off with a tough test
in their preseason opener this week with another defending district champion, Timber Creek.

A new coach adds class at Ocoee
If you spend just a few minutes with Ocoee's new head coach, Shannon Johnson, and her team
prior to the start of practice, it's obvious through the smiles and giggles they already share a bond
that comes with the hard work and dedication needed to play softball at the varsity level. But
once practice begins, the girls quickly shift gears, and its all business on the field.
"I have really good rapport with them and they work their butts off," said Johnson. "But at
the end of the day, they have to understand, it's bigger than softball. You're learning discipline,
you're learning character and you're building something bigger than going out here and clicking
your cleats together and playing softball."
Johnson, who played catcher in college at Austin Peay in Tennessee and coached for eight
years in her home state, does not have enough girls to form a J.V. squad this season, so she has
to build the program through a varsity team with one senior, two juniors and crop of talented
sophomores and freshmen.
"We're very young, but I've coached some very talented teams in the past and this is one of
the hardest working teams that I've coached," said Johnson. 'In the off-season we lifted five
days a week and we ran five days a week starting in September. Some of our girls have gained
tremendous strength."
Senior Taylor Skipper, who has a grin a mile wide but a dogged determination to play the
game, is expected to help guide the younger girls.
"No one will out-work Taylor," said Johnson. "She needs to be a leader on and off the field
and pick everyone up and keep everyone focused on our overall goal. Her presence on the field
makes everyone comfortable and they feel they can go to her and get the right answer."
Skipper and freshman Madeline Largin will share time on the mound and will be surrounded
by a defense that is starting anew after the loss of nine seniors from last year. But opposing
teams would be wise not to underestimate the Lady Knights and the motivational powers of
their new coach.
"I do what it takes and go beyond what is expected and what is needed," said Johnson, when
asked about her coaching style. "I've seen talented players who were not coached, and there's
a difference between going out there and winning with people who have talent and going out

about making sure these 13 girls succeed, but

ued. "When they get off the bus, they're going to
look like they have class.and if we lose and get
killed by 18, they are going to get back on the
bus with class. It's got to start somewhere, and
I'm hoping to build a foundation where they un-
derstand if they look good, they play good and
they work hard, good things will happen."
Johnson's classy approach will be put to the
test early as Ocoee opens its regular season with
three tough opponents in Apopka, Winter Park
and Boone.

A veteran coach guides
a young Dr. Phillips team
Bruno Wojtaszek coached softball for 15
years at Colonial High School and won a few
championships along the way before retiring,
but he never strayed too far fr6m the game.
"I was an umpire and an opportunity came
to coach again," said Wojtaszek. "I was getting
tired of umpiring. It's a blah thing, not caring
who wins, and I'm more into who wins and
who loses."
Now in his third year as head coach of the
Panthers, Wojtaszek looks to capture more wins


and more championship trophies, but he's been
around long enough to know it takes time and patience.
"We're trying to build this program here to be similar to what the other successful programs are
doing," said Wojtaszek. "We still do not have a J.V. team because we still don't have enough girls
come out, but we're starting to get some Little League players and girls'who are playing travel
ball and that's helping a lot. I think this year is going to be a year when we see some rebuilding
and then in the next couple of years, I think you will see the team continue to improve."
Seniors Jessica Berman (third base), Nicole Rubino (catcher) and Brittanie Sullivan (shortstop)
provide the experience that Wojtaszek needs to help guide the younger players including his
team's MVP from last season, sophomore second baseman Gabby Hernandez.
"Gabby is a girl who will give you 100 percent effort into everything," said Wojtaszek. "She
hustles, is so smooth
in the infield and hits
the ball well."
Another young



Frith, who will carry
much of the load in
the pitcher's circle f
for the Panthers,
along with sopho-
mores Angie Ostex-
man and Jacoliah
Pratt. He also sees
potential in some
transfer students.
"Sarah'is doing
very well, and we've
bad a couple of girls,
one from Massachu-
setts, Kalie Hernan-
dez, and one from Lady Panthers (I-r) sophomore Gabby Hernandez, freshman Sarah
New York, Alexan- Frith and senior Jessica Berman.
dra Handler, who
have moved here and are doing very well."
With such a young team, and the lack of a J.V. program to help foster talent, Wojtaszek has a
realistic outlook on the season that comes from the perspective of a veteran coach.
"This year, we hope to win at least two-thirds of our games, 15 %ins out of 25 games in.the
regular season," said Wojtaszek. "We have three seniors and most of the rest are sophomores.
Our pitchers are a freshman and sophomores, and our entire outfield is underclass. If we can be
15-10, I would be pretty happy because we're very, very young."
Dr. Phillips starts their regular season on the road against Poinciana before hosting Celebra-
tion and Freedom.


Starting over at Olympia
Peggy Schwartz was an assistant coach for the Titan softball team the first year the school
opened and returned as an assistant coach a few years ago before taking over this season as a
head coach. Schwartz is leading what she hopes to be a resurgence in a program once laden
with talent.
"I think we have a great mix this year," said Schwartz. "We have one senior, Kathleen Dunca-
son, who can play first and third base and I look to her as a leader. She's been with the program
for four years, so she knows how we work and she makes it happen."
Duncason will help Schwartz guide group of new faces to the program.
"We have four
total girls return-
ing and seven new
freshmen, plus
three or four girls
who play other
sports and this will
be their -first year
playing softball,"
said Schwartz.
Of those fresh-
men is pitcher and
shortstop Paige
. Kovalsky, who
brings a wealth
of championship
travel, ball expe-
.rience with her,
along with a work
ethic that would be .
tough to match. If
you drive through
Windermere on a Lady Titans (I-r) senior Kathleen Duncanson, freshman Paige Koval-

you probably have sky and sophomore Cristin Sandkuhl.
seen Paige in the
bullpen of the Little League softball field tirelessly throwing with her mom or dad.
"Paige will be a great asset to our infield no matter where she's at," said Schwartz.
Junior Kaley Jennings is another travel ball veteran who is a consistent hitter and can play
both the infield and outfield. Jennings also pitched much of last season for the Titans and will
be in the circle again this year.
Sophomore Carrie Bergdahl, who has a knack for getting on base and can play in the infield
and outfield, returns and continues a softball family tradition at Olympia where her twin sisters,
Ashley and Erin, were both scholarship athletes just a few years ago. Fellow sophomore Cristin
Sandkuhl is another versatile player who Schwartz says brings more than just physical talents
to the team.
"Cristin does a wonderful job and she's great in the outfield as well as the infield, so she will
alternate between those positions," said Schwartz. "She's on the ball with a great attitude, which
is what we really look for here."
Schwartz is looking to kick-start the season with an eye towards building momentum towards
the district tournament.
"We usually start out slow and then start to pick it up," said Schwartz. "Having such a young
team, getting them to work together is half the battle. Once the girls start clicking, I expect we'll
do better than last year, but I also see by district we should be more fluent as a team. In the past,
pitching has always been a downfall for us, or we would have a good pitcher but the infield
wasn't up to par. Between our seven freshmen, we really have a chance to build the program and
work our way up. This year, we are very lucky to have a combination of both, and I'm excited
to see it work."
Olympia plays three consecutive days to open its regular season by hosting Edgewater and
Cypress Creek and a road game in between with University.

Montverde stuns nation's No. 2-ranked

high school basketball team


By Chris Silveira

The roar of a crowd echoing across Lake Apo-
pka last Saturday night was the student body
of Montverde Academy, who came pouring out
of the stands onto court at Venerable Roberts
Gymnasium after their Eagles basketball team
upset the number two ranked team in the nation,
Findlay Prep from Henderson, NV, 54-51 in the
finals of the 7th annual Montverde Academy
Invitational Tournament.
Senior James Bell, as he has done for the past
two seasons, led the way for the Eagles with 23
points, including five 3 pointers.
"From day one he's been nothing but the best
player," said an emotional lead coach Kevin
Sutton after the game. "And I mean that in the
classroom; he's the vice president of the senior
class and honor role student. Then on the bas-
ketball court he's the captain and he's carried us.
And tonight he guarded one of the top players
in the country."
The best player in the tournament was also the
smallest player on the court, but what tournament
MVP, 5'9" senior point guard Kaleb Clyburn,
lacks in height he makes up with heart.
"Kaleb is just a tremendous leader," said Sut-
ton. "His heart is way bigger than his height.
He's the president of the senior class and team
captain. My point guards have to be an exten-


Montverde senior point guard Kaleb Clyburn
ment MVP honors.


sion of me, and I'm pretty demonstrative on the
sidelines and they have to be demonstrative on
the court because they handle the ball almost 90
percent of the time. Tonight I think he proved
he's the consulate point guard."
As the seconds began to tick down late in the
fourth quarter with Montverde clinging to a slim
lead, Sutton called timeout and reminded Cly-
bum, who played all 32 minutes in each of the
three tournament games, of his role as a team
leader.
"I told him how you go is how we go," said,
Sutton. "You've done it for us all year and there's
no way possible you could ever think about be-
ing tired now and he said coach, 'we're going
to win', and we did."
The atmosphere surrounding this tournament,
which attracts top teams from around the county,
is unique with its intimate setting allowing fans
to sit right on top of the action. It was a standing
room only crowd on Saturday night and players
fed off the students who filled the "Suttonator
Zone" behind the Eagles team bench.
"This is true home court advantage," said a
beaming Clybum, who after the game was sign-
ing autographs outside the locker room for Chi-
nese exchange students who he says sit next to
him in classes. "The students love us and they
go crazy. It just shows that they really care and
they're dedicated and that they are true fans.
It's another defender; it's like
a sixth man."I
Sutton, who has 23 years of
coaching experience at both the ;
college and high school level,
has built a nationally recognized ,,,
program in this tiny rural com-
munity that has sent over 100
student-athletes on to college
with scholarships. -M
"This is our community, this
is our school and when you look
at our team out on the court,
you're looking at a microcosm
of our student body," said Sut-
ton. "I'm just really pleased for
our community who came out
and did a wonderful job rooting
for Montverde."
With the win on Saturday,
Sutton and his team look toward
the playoffs and their ranking
among the other elite basketball
teams in the country.
"It's a huge win, beating the.
number two team," said Sutton.
"They're very well coached and
incredibly talented, but we are
now one of the top teams in
the country and we played the
schedule to prove it. I'm just
pleased and honored for my
I took tourna- team to have the character that
we showed.",

both students and staff a des-

struggling readers need time for
independent reading in order to.
increase their reading compre-
hension, students performing at r"-.wonyte is
