Local garbage hauler gets more time


By Jerry Jackson

The city of Ocoee's new commercial garbage
hauler got off to a slow, shaky start providing service
to restaurants, offices and businesses, but for now,
city commissioners are sticking with WasteWorks.
Even though the company did not meet every re-
quirement that the city set forth to be met by Feb.
1, commissioners at their Feb. .2 meeting decided
to give the company more time to show it can per-
form.
"It's been going smooth, comparatively," Steve
Krug, public works director, told commissioners and
other city officials.
WasteWorks was supposed to have launched ser-
vice last November, but for various reasons, some of





Dissecting

a frog with

a mouse

An open house later
this month will give WOHS
parents a chance to see
the new technology.

By Am. Quesinberry Rhode

When it's time to dissect frogs in the
anatomy and physiology classes at West
Orange High School, the students don't
slip on their goggles and grab their scal-
pels. They put on their 3D glasses and let
their teacher, Audrey Carter, take care of
the amphibian's dismantling on a black
three-dimensional screen.
With a click of the mouse, Carter can
peel away the frog's layers: skin, muscles,
organs, bones. She can rotate the frog to
show any angle and can single out specific
body parts by "hiding" the rest.
Besides a zoology curriculum, the program
provides study ip human anatomy (male and
female), botany, microbiology and chemistry.
West Orange is the first high school in the
country to use this latest classroom technol-
ogy and is being considered a demonstration
school. Carter said. It's called Cyber Science
3D, and it was first developed
for medical schools in Middle .... .
Eastern countries where, due
'to religious beliefs and cus- ,
toms, the students don't have
access to cadavers for study.
Carter discovered Cyber
Science 3D last year when a
textbook company sent an e-
mail to teachers demonstrat-
ing the program.
"When I saw this program.
I immediately went [to the
school administration] and
asked about the money,"
Carter told The West Orange
.7Times in a recent interview.
"I said, 'Oh my gosh, I have
to have that program.'"
She was the first educator
,to respond and, so far, is the
only one in Florida .to teach
using this technology, said
the program's developer, Dr. A 3-D view re


which were out of the company's control, it failed to
meet deadlines id November, December and Janu-
ary.
Commissioners last month voted to give the com-
pany one more chance, to get started by Feb. 1, and
meet additional requirements including providing
an improved "performance bond" that the city could
call in for reimbursement, in the event of a failure to
perform.
The company still did not have a new bond in
place by Feb. 1, but it did agree to provide the city
with a letter of credit to hold until the bond could be
obtained from a bank.
Ocoee City Attorney Paul Rosenthal told commis-
sioners he was satisfied with that arrangement and
had been in regular contact with a lawyer working on


behalf of WasteWorks to produce the bond.
"I'm satisfied at this particular juncture," Rosen-
thal said: He also noted that Ocoee still held the
original performance bond that the city previously
accepted from WasteWorks, a bond that the city later
decided was inadequate because of the way it was
worded.
Commissioners said they would wait for anoth-
er update report at the Feb. 16 meeting and would
closely monitor the company's performance in the
meantime.
WasteWorks was contracted last year to replace
Veolia Environmental Services, one of the big-
gest solid waste outfits in the world, even though

fessor at the University of low a.
The first five high schools to purchase the '
program received a $500 discount and paid
$19,500 for the computer, two projectors, soft-
ware, screen and 3D glasses. It was purchased
with money from the Furniture, Fixture and
Equipment account that all new schools get
when they open.

Principal James Larsen said it is exciting to
see West Orange "'at the cutting edge of cur-
riculum, not only here in Orange County, but
across the state and country as well.
"The anatomy software we purchased of-
fers our students a unique look into even the
most minute details of the biological systems
that sustain life in both humans and animals,"
he said. "This program definitely places our
students in an advantageous po-
"'T.:- sition with regard to anatomy
S." and physiology when compared
with other schools and will
surely give them an added bo-
nus when applying for schools
related to this field."
Dr. NMalek has flown to Flor-
ida twice to help Carter set up
the program and learn all the
details.
"It takes true vision and dedi-
c cation to generate outstand-
ing high school graduates and
to prepare them for success,"
NMalek told the Times. "Ms. Au-
drey Carter and West Orange
High School have the courage,
the vision and the dedication to
bring the newest technological
advancements into the class-
room and to transform learning

Dr. Mandy Maxey left the
safety and comforts of home
last month to spend a week
performing surgeries in Haiti.
The Gainesville surgeon and
four others from the Orthopae-
dic Institute flew to the Carib-
bean on Jan. 20 following the
severe earthquake that shook
the island of nine million resi-
dents on Jan. 12.
"The devastation in Port-
au-Prince was jaw-dropping,"
Maxey told The West Orange
Times this week. "But the
strength and resilience of the
Haitian patients we cared for
was awe-inspiring. And I was
amazed by the numbers of vol-
unteers from all over the U.S.
and the world."
Maxey, a 1985 graduate of
West Orange High School,
was accompanied by another


orthopedic surgeon, two plas-
tic surgeons and a surgical
technologist. They spent most
of their time in the "operating
room" of a makeshift hospital
in Jimani in the Dominican
Republic.
The team performed skin
grafts and amputations, sewed
up deep cuts and pinned togeth-
er fractured bones. Maxey said
she treated about 30 wounds
and she and her partner, Steve
Waters, operated on roughly
25 people. Patients ranged
from infants to the elderly and
included a 26-year-old with
a jaw fracture, a 10-year-old
with a severe scalp injury and
a 5-year-old who lost her left
arm.
For most of the time, it was
chaotic, Maxey said.

Help Windermere Country Club Foundation
build a home for an injured Iraq War veteran


By Jerry Jackson

The number of candidates
running against incumbent
Democrat Congressman Alan
Grayson continues to grow, but
the first candidate to enter the
race, Daniel Fanelli, is the only
one from West Orange County.
Fanelli, a retired airline pi-
lot who lives in Windermere,
has never held public office at
any level but he told The West
Orange Times that he believes
that is an advantage in this day
and age.
"People are looking for lead-
ership from someone who is not
a politician," Fanelli said. "So I
think that does help me."
Fanelli, 53, was a commercial
pilot for about 20 years and re-
tired from Northwest Airline
in 2007. He said he took early
retirement because of a herni-
ated disc in his back that made
it painful to sit for extended
periods. He was a Navy pilot
before he became a commercial
pilot and retired as a lieutenant
commander in the U.S. Naval
Reserve in 2000.
Fanelli jumped into the ring
against Grayson on Oct. 1 with
a press conference at Orlando


Daniel Fanelli (left) with Michael Steele, chairman of.the
Republican National Committee at a recent gala.


City Hall that attracted wide-
spread media coverage.
Orlando-area members of the
conservative grassroots "tea
party" movement have come
out in support of Fanelli in the
District 8 race for his advocacy
of conservative principles such
as lower taxes and smaller gov-
ernment.
Fanelli had his picture taken
last month with Michael Steele,
chairman of the Republican Na-


tional Committee, during a gala
in New York honoring Martin
Luther King Jr., as Fanelli at-
tempts to gain name recognition
iri the party.
About a dozen Republicans
have lined up to challenge Gray-
son, in addition to Fanelli, but
most well-known, veteran poli-
ticians and public officials have
either declined to take on the in-
cumbent or have pulled out of
the race for various reasons.


Windermere Country Club
Foundation will host its 3rd An-.
nual A Home for A Hero Golf
Tournament and Auction Tues-
day, Feb. 23, at Windermere
Country Club, 2710 Butler Bay
Drive, Windermere. The event
will raise funds to provide a
mortgage-free home for U.S.
Army Sgt. Joel Tavera, an Iraq
war veteran who is currently
undergoing treatment at the
VA Medical Center in Tampa.
The Foundation is working, with
Building Homes for Heroes for
the second year to provide a
home for a combat-wounded
veteran. The community is in-
vited to "Thank Our Military"
by joining this effort with golf
registrations and sponsorships
or with donations of funds for
the home-building project or
items for the silent and live
auction or door prizes.
Sgt. Tavera was deployed to
Iraq in the fall of 2007 at 19
yearsof age. In March of 2008,
shortly before he was to return
to the United States, Joel was
severely wounded when five


rockets hit his Humvee. He lost
his right leg and four fingers on
his left hand, as well as the sight
in both eyes. In addition, he suf-
fered head trauma and fourth-
degree burns to 60 percent
of his body. This remarkable
young man is focused on recov-
ery in spite of the obstacles he
faces. He has been awarded the
Bronze Star and Purple Heart
for his service.
His parents were told Joel is
the second most critically in-
jured Army soldier to survive
since the war in Iraq began. To
care for and support their son,
they sold their North Carolina
home and moved to Tampa.
During his recovery, Sgt. Ta-
vera has maintained a positive
attitude and his determination to
heal is exceptional. He expects
to spend another year at the
Medical Cedter in Tampa.
As in 2008, Reed Motors has
generously donated a vehicle
to be raffled at the tournament.
Tickets to win the 2010 Nissan

Editorials


Now comes the hard part


at least for now. His commitment to the com-
munity is unquestioned.
Now comes the hard part. Mr. Vandergrift
has been in office long enough that he is on
the verge of becoming an institution. Yet the
mayor carries but one vote, and that vote is not
always on the winning side. Mr. Vandergrift
will have to continue to work hard and look for
more ways to justify the community's ongoing
support. Building a true, lasting legacy takes
thought, tenacity and time.
Here's hoping that the mayor can pull off
that trifecta:


. Now that S. Scott Vandergrift has been re-
turned to office as Ocoee's mayor because no
one tossed their hat into the ring, it's time to
say congratulations, and best of luck.
That's right. Even though the Times has sup-
ported other candidates for mayor through the
years, Mr. Vandergrift has shown that he is the
people's choice. ,He has earned their vote of
confidence. Would be challengers know that.
It has been said that the mayor wears his heart
on his sleeve and his love for Ocoee on his hat,
and his car, and his jacket and his...Yes, he is
an old-school mayor. But for Ocoee, it works,


Editor's Notebook


By Jerry Jackson


Oakland Nature Preserve is a true jewel in
West Orange County, created by nature and
now polished and protected by volunteers.
The open house last weekend marking the
one-year anniversary of the debut of the pre-
serve's Environmental Education Center in-
troduced more area residents and out-of-town
visitors to our local treasure. And what an in-
troduction it was.
Towering trees draped with moss stood
guard at the preserve, quiet
and majestic. Birds sound-
ed the alarm and alerted all
creatures who have taken
the time to understand their
sharp cries and chirps: Guid-
ed tour groups are in our
home! Here they come! .
If you missed it, don't
worry. The 128-acre pre-
serve is open 365 days a
year, 8 a.m. to sundown,
at no charge. How can you
beat that?
Wait, there's more, as the ,
frenetic TV sales people
always shout: The preserve
is right on the West Orange
Trail, making it accessible
to anyone who can pedal a
bicycle. I dropped a small
token of my appreciation
into the donation box at the
entrance to the "Environ-
mental Education Center," Oreo, a red-s
a name which does not do was part of the
justice to the big log-cabin urday's open h
style building that houses ar- land Nature Pr
-cheological displays, local
flora and fauna and spacious
meeting rooms.
With a wide porch and tin roof, the center
looks .as if it truly belongs there. Sadly, the
center itself is only open for scheduled meet-
ings, special events and by appointment. There
are just not enough volunteers right now to
keep it open on a regular basis. But just you
wait. I predict it will be. It's way too good to
keep locked up. Maybe you or someone you
know can help unlock that treasure chest as a
volunteer. OaklandNaturePreserve.org is where


you can find out more.

Winter Garden's gorgeous new community

the same day as the open house at Oakland

be Dillard Street Elementary School. Jessie

munities far larger

that will go on there, for
decades to come....
Speaking of honors and
such, it was an honor to
see citrus grower Jack
Ross at the Jessie Brock
center's grand opening.

West Orange' citrus grower and philanthro-
pist Jerry Chicone was there too, and he said
that seeing as how they were not getting any
younger, by golly, he wanted to celebrate the
life of Jack Ross sooner rather than later. I
say amen, as time is something none of us has
enough of.
"Let's hold it quick," Chicone said with a
laugh. And his old friend Jack Ross laughed
along with him, one more time.

On Feb. 19, 1945, U.S. Marines landed on Iwo
Jima, a craggy island in the Pacific where they
encountered very stiff resistance from the Japa-
nese defenders -one of the bloodiest battles in
history. Maurice Marshall of Windermere was a
19-year-old sergeant in the 4th Marine Division
when they fought to capture Iwo Jima. He is.
fortunate to have been one of only 2 percent
of the entire division who survived to the end
of World War II. A memorial service is taking
place in Iwo Jima this week with both American
and Japanese survivors participating. [Maurice
Marshall died Jan. 16 and has been buried in
Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell.]

These Times

Heather's smile will live on


"Laugh as much as you breathe, and love as
long as you live."
Carolyn Wiegman posted this on Facebook a
few weeks ago. It's so appropriate given God's
plan for her and her family. Carolyn's daughter,
Heather, is dying, and Heather knows that her
breaths are numbered. But Heather certainly
won't go without a smile on her face. She has
spent her entire life spreading love and show-
ing everyone who meets her that life is what
you make of it and that joy is in the everyday
living.
Boy, can Heather
smile. And that infec- ':".":,
tious smile has been
around a lot longer '.
than all her doctors
expected. Heather
was 3 when she was
diagnosed with a rare -
form of muscular dys- ."
trophy and secondary
cerebral palsy. Doc-
tors told the Wieg-
mans the grim news
that their daughter
would only live two
or three years. But
Heather sure proved
them wrong. ,
She is 18 years old
now.
Carolyn, a 1988
graduate of West Or-
ange High School, has
been the champion for
her daughter for all of arolyn Wiegman
those 18 years. She Carolyn Wiegmands
has fought doctors Heather, spend so
she\ has fought teach- gether.
ets -- all in an effort
to give her daughter a life as full as anyone
else's child. ,
Carolyn made sure her daughter was allowed
to go to school, but it was Heather who, taught
her mother the most important lessons. She
shared with me some of the things she has
learned from Heather:
"I've learned to love unconditionally, to be
happy with the life I have and take nothing
for granted. I've learned to smile through the
hard times and find a way to make lemonade
out of the lemons that have been thrown my
way. Life is hard, but through her I've learned
that life is all about our attitude toward it. I've
learned that things can (and will) be taken away
from us. We have tq be thankful for every day
we've been given and to know that, through
everything we do and our reactions to it, we


ar
Mn


are teaching others.
"Always smile and laugh and live life to the
fullest."
Beneath the smile, though, is a fighter who
no longer wants to fight. Heather has made it
clear that her body is tired and she is ready to
say good-bye, Carolyn said. At Christmastime,
Heather came down with pneumonia so bad
that she .was unable to breathe on her own, and
currently she has two infections in her trachea
and lungs that are resistant to antibiotics. There
are other medical prob-
lems as well.
l "She's put up an
amazing fight for 18
years," Carolyn said.
"She's taught those who
know her many life les-
sons. She's done what
she was supposed to do,
and, somehow, I think
she knows that....She's
at peace with the situa-
tion."
Two weeks ago, Caro-
lyn hosted a big luau for
Heather. A steady stream
of friends visited their
Dr. Phillips-area home
to share some happy mo-
ments with the teen:. A
karaoke machine was set
up, and the microphone
was in front of Heather
most of the day. She was
in her princess crown,
nd her daughter, she was the subject of
rnd her-daughter, most of the pictures tak-
e quality time to- en, and it was her day.
And, yes, the grin on her
face shined for hours.
I asked Carolyn to describe Heather, and this
is what she said: "She's a very inspirational
girl who was given the ability to teach those
around her the meaning of compassion, kind-
ness, caring and the true meaning of love....
'She's always been the sunshine in the day and
the brightest star shining at night.... Her smiles
radiate any room she enters, and people have
always been naturally drawn to her. She's pure
and sweet and innocent." .
The family, which includes Heather's young-
er brother, J.J., is spending its last days together
"partying it up," as Carolyn says.-There's a lot
of laughing goingion in that house this week,
and the music keeps playing.
Singing Heather. Brave Heather. Always
happy Heather. When she takes her last breath, I
suspect her wings will be as big as her smile.

Business


Cultural Tours looks to add West Orange to sites


By Jerry Jackson


Florida Cultural Tours,
headed by Ocoee resident and
business executive Orine Boyd,
takes tourists and locals alike on
short trips off the beaten path,
giving them a close up look at
spots they may otherwise miss
from Winter Park's lush chain
of lakes to south Lake County's
"wine country."
Now Boyd is considering
adding a tour of West Orange
County to the itinerary.
"That's my goal," Boyd said,
during a recent tour-stop at the
Orange County Regional His-
tory Center in downtown Or-
lando.
"There's just so much to en-
joy in West Orange, and we need
to get some of the tourist dollars.
There's so much more than Dis-


ney World, but many people just
don't know that."
The company's current day
tours include visits to the Eat-
onville-Hannibal Square area of
Winter Park and a scenic boat
ride through the lakes of Winter
Park where many wealthy fami-
lies reside.
Other stops include Lakeridge
Winery and the famed Citrus
Tower in south lake, a tower on
a hill that now mostly overlooks
homes and the growing wine
vineyards on gently rolling hills
nearby.
Day tours cost from $52 to
$55 and the company also does,
custom and large-group tours.
The day tours generally take
about four hours, plus a stop
.for lunch somewhere along the
way.
On this day, about 20 people


enjoyed the tour that stopped at
the history center in Orlando,
where much of West Orange
County's colorful citrus heritage
is on display.
Representatives of other
local cultural organizations en-
joyed the comfort of the tour-bus
ride to familiarize themselves
with the new daily tours, and
two West Orange residents were
on the sightseeing trip: Sheryl
Taylor, who lives near Apopka,
and Chuck Robinson, of Winter
Garden. Taylor, a representative
of the Orlando Convention and
Visitors Bureau, said the tours
"allow visitors and local resi-
dents alike to partake in an ex-
citing and educational journey
to the past."
More details can be found at
the company's Web site: flori-
daculturaltours.com.

month launched daily sightseeing tours,Tuesdays through Fridays. Reservations must
be made by 10 a.m. the day before the tour, which lasts about four hours. Larger tours
can be booked for groups and family reunions and Boyd, a resident of Ocoee, said she
hopes to add West Orange County sites to the itinerary for future cultural tours.


Check your credit with free annual reports


Have you checked your credit
report?
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles Bronson is urging con-
sumers to take time to review
their credit reports now that
holiday bills are arriving in the
mail. Federal law allows people
to get one free report annually
from each of the three major
credit reporting agencies.
Nearly five years ago, a
change was made to the Fair
Credit Reporting Act to require
the credit reporting agencies
providee a-free report to-con-
sumers who request one. The
change was made to encourage
consumers to identify potential
identity-theft more quickly.
A credit report contains in-
formation about a consumer's
'credit history,-including a list-
ing of all credit cards, loans, bill
payment history and bankrupt-
cies, Major consumer reporting
agencies sell the information to
credit card companies and other
creditors, insurers, employers
and businesses that review the
file when consumers apply for
credit, insurance, loans, and em-.
ployment. A poor credit history
A can result in rejection of credit
| -or higher interest rates on a loan
or credit card,and may even re-
duce your chances of getting a
Sjob. .
j Bronson'said people should
not get all three credit reports
at once, but space them out over
' 12 months so they can monitor
r their credit throughout the year.
The credit reporting agencies
usually have similar information
so checking on reports through-
out the year enables people to

"It can take months or even
years to learn about credit prob-
lems if you are riot paying atten-
tion," Bronson said.
If the consumer wants to
obtain their "credit score," a
number that is separate from the
detailed credit report, the report-
ing agencies charge small fees
for that. But the regular credit
reports without the "score" are
free.

Why do I believe we
are called to make
a difference in our
spheres of influence?

Because...
- I believe lost people mat-
ter to God.

- I believe the fields are ripe
for harvest. God is working
and has prepared hearts.

- I believe God has called
and empowered me to be
His witness.

- I believe I am to love...
from the "one another" to
the neighbor and even to the
enemy.

- I believe I am to respect
the dignity of each person's
creation (feelings, intellect,
and choices).

- I believe in the reality of
lostnesss" and eternal life.

- I believe the Gospel natu-
rally spreads through the
webs of our relationships.

- I believe God desires to
use my story, personality,
and relationships in build-
ing His Kingdom.

WasteWorks is very small and

The city favored
WasteWorks in part because
one of the owners, Fred Bon-

does hire at least some local
residents.
In other action last week,
the commission:
voted unanimously to ter-
minate a plan to construct a
stormwater holding pond ad-
jacent to City Hall on Starke
Lake. State, local and private
engineers concluded that the
site was just not feasible for
such a pond. It would have to
be way too deep or wide to
hold enough runoff and meet
environmental requirements
in keeping sediment and nu-
trients out of the lake.
The city agreed to turn back
a state matching grant that it
had received for the project,


and will apply for a new one
after a more feasible plan is
developed.

to be everywhere and there was no one really in
charge, one of the doctors wrote on his online
Twitter account.
There were other issues contributing to the
frustration, Maxey said, including the team's
safety while in Haiti. The doctors were pro-
tected by the 82nd Airborne Division as they
.slept on a warehouse rooftop in a town about
30 minutes away from the "hospital."
Protection outside the Port-au-Prince airport
was heavy as FBI officials and U.S. military
personnel with machine guns watched over the
crowds beyond the barriers and checked pass-
ports of everyone flying to the United States.
The airport building itself was empty because
of collapsed ceilings and walls.
The doctors credit U.S. senators Bill Nelson
and George LeMieux for making the surgi-
cal team's travel arrangements to and from
Haiti.
The Orthopaedic Institute is a private-prac-
tice group of 23 specialty physicians providing
the complete spectrum ofmusculoskeletal care

and rehabilitation.

Warriors win district wrestling crown


By Chris Silveira

In what can only be described as one of most
remarkable high school sports turnarounds in
recent memory, the West Orange Warrior varsity
wrestling team captured the Class 3A District 3
title after finishing dead last in the same event a
year ago. This is the first district team title for
West Orange in any sport this school year and
the first wrestling title for the Warriors since
1991.
What makes this so special to the guys on the
team and their head coach, Kristen lannuzzi, is
they won the team title with only one wrestler,
Kyle Keoppen, taking home an individual title
at 160 pounds. But 10 of the 14 boys on the team
advanced to the regional final this weekend in
Ocala, and everyone on the team contributed
to their slim four point margin over defending
district champion Dr. Phillips.
"Two years ago if you would have told anyone
in the wrestling community West Orange would.
be the district champions in the near future, they
would have laughed in your face," said Iannuzzi.
"The program was quite literally on the brink
of extinction, and when my administration gave
me a chance to turn it around, there was still
little faith in the wrestling world that West Or-
ange would be anything but a joke. We were
all-to-often overlooked, and no one paid much
attention to us. My kids, who were all basically
new wrestlers, worked extremely hard and over-
came more obstacles in .one season than most
programs encounter in four years."
Ten seniors with one last chance to make a
mark at their school paved the way and set the
standard for the rest of the team in an effort to
rebuild the program, and gain respect among
their peers.
"They wrestled for a club team, they ran, they,
lifted, they went to camps, clinics and tourna-
ments and they were hungry," said lannuzzi.
"The strict discipline that kept our numbers at
19 wrestlers last year was soon the very reason
so many students wanted to join us this year. I
told all of them that it was hard to be part of the
program, but worth it. That this season was go-
ing to be special....that if they committed to our
goals, we were going to make history."
The team went from a 4-9 record last season
to 22-5 this year, and as the season progressed,
the team approach that lannuzzi has preached
* started to pay off in the form of a tournament
team win and individual titles.
"People wondered if we were just lucky," said
lannuzzi. "The week leading up to districts, we
spent the first half of practice doing team build-
ing exercises. We don't have the 'studs' other
programs have, but we are extremely strong as


one force of 14, and our goal was 14 in and 14
out. We fell short, but we did advance 10 to the
regional tournament and I believed they could
do it. My goal was to make sure they knew they
could do it no matter who doubted them."
The Warrior wrestlers who advanced along
with individual district champion Keoppen in-
clude second-place finishers Tony Butera (103
pounds), Joe Campisi (189) and Daniel Duran
(285). Advancing with a third-place finish was
Wesley Blevins (125) and Jonathan Vazquez
(171) and advancing in fourth place was Felipe
Guzman (112), Bryan Dieterich (215) and broth-
ers Jonah (140) and Jacob Larsen (145).
Dr. Phillips High had nine wrestlers who ad-
vanced to the regional finals, including individ-
ual district champions Zach Whitmire (112), P.J.
Fronsdahl (130) and Austin Hellinger (145).
"Our three district champs performed ex-
tremely well, with Austin Hellinger being the
most improved over the past week," said Pan-
thers Head Coach Lenin Vazquez.
Whitmire completely dominated his oppo-
nent in the final, pinning Rene Rivera of Apopka
one minute into the first round. Fronsdahl was
equally impressive and scored a major decision,
13-3, over Lake Brantley's Matt Shropshire, and
Hellinger defeated Olympia's Nick Murphey
by technical fall, 16-0. Jared Watkins placed
second at 119 pounds, Janz Lado placed second
at 125 pounds, Alan Arevalo placed third at 189,
Casey Sanstrom was third at 215 and Chris Abad
placed fourth at 285.
The Olympia team placed third and also
advanced nine wrestlers to the regional finals
including 103 pound champion Robbie Potts,
who defeated West Orange's Butera in a rematch
from the Metro Conference tournament final the
week prior. Potts took control of the match early
in shutting out Butera 4-0.
"Robbie put himself in a great position to
compete for a regional title next weekend-,"
said Olympia Head Coach Jeremy Bourst. "He
continues to get better every week."
Second-place finishers for the Titans included
Steven Scl4reckengost (140), Nick Murphey
(145), Brian Pacheco (171) and Trevor Citek
(215). Josh Ceballos (152) and Brian Pacheco
(171) finished in third place and Dylan Heroian
(125) and Romane Cranston (135) finished
fourth.
"It was a tight race going into the medal
rounds," said Bourst. "We're proud of the fact
that we had five in the finals and nine wrestlers
qualify for regionals. Credit to West Orange for
having the depth to win the team title. It will be
an exciting Weekend in Ocala for these young
men as they try to earn a trip to the Lakeland
Center for the state finals."

ball team still advanced to the
regional playoffs.

The Dr. Phillips High varsity girls basketball
team staged a remarkable comeback in its district
tournament semifinal game last Friday night, ral-
lying back from a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit
to defeat East Ridge in overtime, 58-56. But in
the finals on Saturday, the cold shooting that
plagued them the night before continued, and
was too much to overcome as the Panthers' 27-
game unbeaten streak ended in a 41-37 loss to
the Apopka Blue Darters.
"We shot badly and that's what we live and die
by, the three-point shot and we had a lot of cold
shooting tonight," said Dr. Phillips Head Coach
Anthony Jones. "I don't want to discredit their
defense, but it was just one of those nights."
Apopka made it to the finals by surviving a
close game of their own against Olympia on Fri-
day. The Titans went on a 23-5 run late in the
game to pull ahead by 53-51 with less than a min-
ute to play, but a free throw by the Blue Darters
Shanequa Schrouder pulled Apopka within one,
and then Schrounder hit the game winner with
13 seconds left to secure the win, 54-53.
In Dr. Phillips' semifinal game against East
Ridge, the undersized Panthers had no answer
inside for the Knights center Selina Archer,
who scored 33 points. Trailing 43-26 late in the
fourth-quarter, the Panthers went on a 25-8 run
led by Lexi Brown, who had a team high 22
points, and they tied the game 51-51 at the end
of regulation.


Late in the overtime period, senior Brittany
Marshall sank a pair of free throw baskets to
seal the victory, 58-56.
In the final, both teams appeared to be feeling
the effects of their battles the night before, and
Dr. Phillips appeared especially sluggish as Apo-
pka outhustled them up and down the court.
"Apopka came ready to play," said Jones. "We
fought, but I don't think we fought hard enough.
They beat us on the board and they beat us to
loose balls. They.shot well from the free throw
. line and we missed several shots and missed
several layups. Apopka really wanted it. They
wanted it more than we did."
The good news for the Panthers is despite the
first loss of the season, they still advanced to
the regional playoffs and travel to Vero Beach
on Thursday for a quarterfinal game at 7 p.m.
Jones reluctantly admitted that there was some
good to come out of this heartbreaking first loss
for his young team.
"They wanted to win the district, but we are
fortunate that we made it through that tough
game last night and still have an opportunity for
the regionals and the playoffs," said Jones. "This
is a learning tool. This is a game that we need
to learn from and hopefully come out the next
game and do better so yes, it may be a blessing
in disguise."
Should both teams win their games on Thurs-
day, Apopka would host a rematch next Tuesday
night.
"I think we'll meet them again," said Jones.
"If we cah take care of business and come back
and play them and hope for some revenge be-
cause we won the regular season contest, they
won the district championship, but it's that last
game that counts."

High school baseball


By Chris Silveira

Preseason tournaments that traditionally mark o
the start of high school baseball are being played
this week across Orange County, and four of the / //
nine 6A schools in a competitive District 5 Dr.
Phillips, Ocoee, Olympia and West Orange are I'
all ready'to begin their 20-plus-game season in -
hopes of playing their best when the district ''". '
tournament starts the last week of April.

A new approach at West Orange


West Orange Head Coach Jesse Marlo, who is in his /
sixth year leading the Warriors, knows it will be difficult to -
match the heroics of last year's district championship game ..
that saw his team win a second consecutive title with a walk-off. ,
home run in seventh inning, but his program is still considered one ,
the strongest in the area, and he's making the adjustments needed
to stay competitive.
"We've lost a lot of big-time guys, and it's going to take more
of a team effort this year rather than just two or three guys kind ',. ,.
of carrying the team," said Marlo as he watched his team have a
little fun with a preseason homerun derby. "I don't think we have
the players capable of doing that this year, but as a group we
definitely have a very talented team. We just need to play a little
bit better and everyone has to pull their weight this year."
Senior Mason Williams, who is projected to be a high selection
in the Major League Baseball draft and has already signed with
the University of South Carolina, brings leadership and experience
on the mound this season, and Marlo is hoping he can make an even
bigger contribution with his bat.
"For us to be successful, Mason's going to have to do it on both sides of the
field on the mound and at the plate," Marlo said. "Last year, he struggled
at the plate, but his sophomore year he hit .400, so if we can get him back to
his sophomore form and just worry about getting on base in the top of the order,
and not trying to hit home runs and do it all by himself, he'll be fine."
Senior Albert LaFrance is a four-year player at the varsity level who's making a move to
second base after playing three years at third. Aaron Spragg, who has held down second base
the past three years will compete for a spot at shortstop or possibly moving over to first bage.
Christian Coburn will return to the outfielder and rove around between leftfield and rightfield
depending on who's pitching, and he's being converted into a pitcher.as well.
"We're hoping he can do something on the mound, and to give you a sense of what kind
of lineup we're going to have and what kind of baseball we're going to be playing, he is
probably going to be our cleanup hitter," said Marlo. "Anybody who knows who Christian
Colbert is knows he's pretty much a one or two [hitter], so we're going to be a small-balling
team and a base-stealing team this year. It won't be like the West Orange teams of the past
where we got two or three strong guys in the middle who can take it out on any pitch."
A couple of players who share the same first name should also play a big part in the suc-
cess of the Warriors.
"A lot of people have probably never heard of Austin Gomber, who is a junior now and has
never thrown more than eight innings at the varsity level," said Marlo. "He's. expected to be
our No. 2, and he's already signed a scholarship to Florida Atlantic. He's grown a couple of
inches and he's up to the mid-80's on the left-hand side of the mound and could compete for
the No. 1 spot with Mason. He has the stuff to do it, so now he just has to show it on the field.
And Austin Bousfield started for us the last two years since he's been a freshman and he's
really made a huge jump this year in the off-season and turned into more of a power hitter and
gap-to-gap guy instead of just a singles hitter, so he'll be leading off for us most likely."
Marlo develops talent with the help of an eighth-grade feeder team and a group of teams
called the Winter Garden Warriors that has several teams from 12U to eighth grade.
"These guys come to my camps and they always show up and support the team during
our games," said Marlo. It's great for these guys to come out and be able, to watch high
school and see what it's all about and see what I expect and get a feel for what kind of
coach I am before they even get here."
Youth will play more of a role than ever before in Marlo's tenure as the Warrior head
coach, and he's excited about one new player in particular.
"We have three freshmen on the team, which is the most we've had since I've been here,
and all three will probably develop into Division-I players," said Marlo. "One that sticks
out in my head is Alan Archer, who probably has more talent that anyone who has stepped
on this camptis since I've been at this school. If he puts in the time and dedication there's no
telling how far he could go. He plays outfield and pitcher and has already thrown 88 mph off
the mound. He's the biggest kid in the whole program and looks like a football player."
West Orange is looking for its third consecutive district title and is hosting a preseason clas-
sic this week before hitting the road for its first regular season game against Timber Creek
on Feb. 19Y.


winds up


"I think we have a good group of guys who play together and
play as a team," said O'Neal. "They're playing for the name on
the front of the jersey rather than the back of the jersey, and I think
that's so important. Sometimes people forget. They watch too much
ESPN and they forget that you're playing for your team and not just
for yourself."
One of those unselfish players is senior right-handed pitcher Brett Winger,
who has signed with the University of Michigan and is expected to be the
Titans' ace on the mound. But this big kid with a polite demeanor also
wields a big stick at the plate.
"Brett will also be at third base and first base," said O'Neal. "I need him
to anchor the lineup. He's a good all-around player and he'll be fun to watch
this year."
Senior outfielder Dom Attanasio, who signed a scholarship to play
at Clemson, will roam the outfield alternating between leftfield and
rightfield. "He's our leadoff hitter and hit about .400 last year and
did a great job," O'Neal said.
Brandan Keen is slated as the No. 2 pitcher and has
signed with the University of North Florida. Matt LaB-
-. \ erge returns and provides stability to the Titan infield
as their shortstop.
Other coaches around the district look to Olympia
as one of the top teams as it is loaded with talent
up and down the lineup, and has a good mix of
experience and youth. There is also respect
for the Titan coaching staff led by O'Neal,
\ \ who finds his talent in an approach to tryouts
each season that differs from most coaches,
ii .j i ) ) and he thinks it adds to the overall team
- / / chemistry needed to be successful.
S' "I try to find people that maybe I didn't
S / know about, that are. under the radar," said
I O'Neal. "I generally have four or five days
/,/ / / ,of tryouts. We try and make sure we see ev-
/ / erybody and give everybody an opportunity, a
fair opportunity. I just can't do a 'one and done'
/ / /' and just throw the roster up there. You might miss
S I/ '/.' somebody that could really help make your club, and
/ each year I've found one or two guys.that maybe nobody
/ / knew about and sometimes that's such
/ a big part of it to find that key ingredient that helps you
get over the. hump."
."I have two players this year who are going to be interesting
"i to watch," he said. "I think sometimes you can find a diamond in
the rough and try to polish that piece of coal until you get to the
diamond and sometimes those types of players can really help
you in the long run."
The Titans start the regular season Feb. 23 with a road game at
Boone followed by three straight home games against Apopka,
Wekiva and South Lake.


Small ball and defense
are keys to success at Ocoee
Ocoee High second-year Head Coach Eddie Doyle looks
around a district loaded with talent and knows the .Knights
have a tough schedule ahead of them, but he's also keenly
-:. aware that every team starts over once the district tourna-
ment begins.
"At this level you want to be playing your best baseball
come April," said Doyle, as he watched his team work on
infield drills. "You could win one game in the regular sea-
M S son, but if you're paying your best ball anything can happen.
If you have a legit No. 1 pitcher that can throw strikes, and your
guys hit a little bit, you can upset anybody in this district."
The Knights lost seven starters from last year's team but do get most
of their pitching back along with their All-Metro first baseman Nick
Gallipeau, who Doyle plans to m6ve to third base.
"I feel more comfortable with him at third," said Doyle. "He's got a
great glove, will hit third in the lineup, and he's the guy that gives me that thunder.
in the lineup for extra base hits."
Junior Matt Oset is a pitcher who can also play center or leftfield and will hit in the middle
of the lineup everyday.
"Matt had a good summer with a traveling team, and I've already been contacted by some
colleges about him, so he's a possible Division I guy for us," said Doyle. "Luckily I have him
one more year after this."
Sophomore Frankie Sagarese started every game last season in the outfield but this year
Doyle is converting him to play catcher. .
"We don't having any catchers with varsity experience behind'the plate, so I'm putting
Frankie there and hopefully I can develop somebody and put them in the outfield," said Doyle.
"He can run, has an arm, plus will probably be in the leadoff spot because he's my fastest kid.
He's been handling the bat really well, so expect good things from him."
Junior right-handed pitcher Dalton Kelly commands three pitches and threw in some big
games for the Knights last season, and is expected to make. a significant contribution again
this year.
"He's not going to have the velocity, but he can go in and out and can throw his breaking
ball for strikes, which in high school is a very big plus," said Doyle.
Doyle thinks the Knights will be better defensively than last year, but offensively, he does
not expect to have a lot of guys who can hit it over the fence, so he plans to play more small
ball.
"We're going to have to take the extra base, when possible;" said Doyle. "We're not going


Albert Lafran (1-r), Mason Williams and Christian Coburn will lead the Warriors this
year.

Teaching respect for the game at Olympia
Baseball, more than any other sport, is built on a foundation of tradition and respect for the
past, and when you watch the Olympia Titan baseball team play this season, you will see a
group of young men paying homage to the history of the game.
"I'm old school," says Head Coach Randy O'Neal, who is in his fourth year at Olympia.
"When we hit a homerun we stay in the dugout, we don't go celebrate like it's our first one
we ever hit in Little League. We stay here and act like we've done it before, and we treat the
game the right way."
O'Neal's reverence for the game stems from his upbringing in Kentucky, his college career
at the University of Florida and eight years of pitching in the MajoftLeagues.

to go anywhere unless I get good pitching and good defense because we're not going to be
able to get the big four- 'or five-run innings. We're going to be able to score one, two at a time
and play good defense to keep us in games and hopefully win it late."
Doyle makes it clear to his players there is much expected of them beyond the time spent
each day at practices and in games.
"I just want effort all of the time, 100 percent effort," Doyle said. "A lot of kids don't get the
chance to play high school baseball, and it's a privilege to be able to play at this level. Work-
ing hard and having good character not only on the field, but off the field. I expect these kids
to perform in the classroom. I'm a teacher and there's nothing worse than dealing with bad
kids all day, so we instill good character. They need to do what they are supposed to do when
people aren't watching, and that's building good character, and I expect them to do that in the
classroom as well as on the field."
Ocoee will play in tournaments at Lake Brantley this week and Apopka next week before
traveling to University to open the regular season on Feb. 24.

-New head coach at Dr. Phillips
takes over his field of dreams
When first-year Head Coach Michael Brad-
ley was an eight-grader at Southwest Middle
School, his father would often pick him up early
and they would head to Dr. Phillips High School
to, watch the Panthers' practices and games, fuel-
ing a passion for baseball that still bums in their
family today.
"I grew up in the Dr. Phillips area, played
Little League at Dr. Phillips and in the early 90's
if you played baseball, this was the high school
you wanted to go to," said Bradley before the
start of a recent practice. "They had the nicest
field and the best coaches."
Bradley realized his dream of playing for the
Panthers and was part of the 1996 team that
won a state title. He was drafted by the Min-
nesota Twins as a right-handed pitcher after his
senior year, but opted to play college baseball
and pursue his other dream coaching at the
high school level.
Bradley is ready to lead his own team after
several years as an assistant, including stints
with his former high school coach, Chip Gierke,
who Bradley said, "besides my father, was one
of the biggest influences in a positive way on
me," and the most recent Panther Head Coach
Mike Barefoot, who has stayed on as an assistant
and is thrilled with his new role and the oppor-
tunit% to spend more time with his family.
"It's been an easy transition," says Barefoot.
"People ask me if it's hard to be an assistant and
I say, 'heck no, it's wonderful.' I leave here and
I don't have to think about it anymore, but yet
I'm still part of a great program and I can still
see guys that I've coached."
Bradley thinks the Panthers are in a good posi-
tion to play well in one of the toughest districts
in Central Florida.
"I see us right in the middle of the pack, but I
do know this, we have quality arms with depth
on the mound, so I think our pitching is going
to be there," said Bradley.
"We had a really good defense that kept us in
a lot of games last year, so I'm really excited
about that. Three years ago, we started three
freshmen and four sophomores and they have
two years of varsity baseball under their belt
and there's a lot of confidence. I wouldn't say
swagger, I would say confidence."
Senior Ben Overman, a UCF commitment,
is a lanky hard-throwing, right-handed pitcher
who will anchor the rotation. He also plays right
field and will hit in the three or four spot in
the lineup. Other arms ready to go this season
include lefthanders Mitchell Dolan, who as a
sophomore was the Panther's No. 2 pitcher and
junior Josh Strong, who Bradley has high hopes
for this season.
"Josh pitched the most innings for us last year
and look out for him to have a break-out season
this year," said Bradley, who is also looking to
another Josh to help solidify the Panthers rota-
tion. "Josh Larsen pitched the second most in-
nings and was a first-year pitcher last year and
is going to be huge for us."


The Dr. Phillips Panthers will be led by seniors (1-r) Galvin Gal- J.P. Galagarza and Andrew Trucks. DP opens its season Feb.
lardo, Mitchell Dolan, Blake Hutton, Josh Larson, Ben Overman, 27.


Junior Alex Miller, who is the first verbal com-
mitment of the 2012 class at Florida Gulf Coast
College, will also see plenty of mound duty this
season. The defense is led by senior Jean Pierre
Galagarza, who Bradley said "is probably the
best defensive shortstop in the Orlando area,"
and Matt Brough, a three-year starter at third
base. Junior Adam Derusha returns at second
base and senior Matt Byerly will start his third
year in left field.
"Brough started as a freshman at shortstop
and led the team in RBIs, and anything hit his
way he'll gobble it up," said Bradley. "Byerly
is a left-handed stick, so in our short park here
it's a commodity because any left-handed stick
is going to be big."
Bradley's parents, Roger and Nancy, were
in the press box last Saturday during an intra-
squad scrimmage. Both with brimming with
pride when talking about what lies ahead for
the Panthers.
"It's hard to explain it," said Roger. "It's like a
dream come true. It's amazing just to sit here and
watch him because he still looks like a player.
He can communicate with these kids like I've
never seen, and he inspires them to play better
and to work hard as a unit."
"The whole thing is very emotional to me
because it seems like yesterday that I was sit-
ting in the stands," said Nancy. "The trees are
bigger but everything else is like'no time has
passed. His leadership skills surprise me. He
knows what he wants to do and he's working
with the kids and parents to achieve the goals,
but more than anything it's obvious to anybody
that he loves what he does. He loves this and
he loves the kids and Dr. Phillips. This is home
-for us so we couldn't be any happier or more
excited about what's to come."
The Panthers start the season with five road
games before they return home for a game
against First Academy on Feb. 27.
