streets in downtown Winter Garden faces foreclosure.


Love affair with Winter Garden
revealed in decades-old photos


- A reception to
unveil the photos of
downtown Winter
Garden in the
1980s is this Friday
at 5:30 p.m. at City,
Hall.
Peter Schreyer has always
had a thing for Winter Garden.
Perhaps it is his fascination
with what he calls the disap-
pearing, real Florida. When
everyone else had abandoned
downtown in the 1980s and
'90s for large-scale shopping
centers and malls, the forlorn
buildings of historic down-
town Winter Garden lured
Swiss-born Schreyer and his
camera.


For more than three decades,
Schreyer brought students to
the city to photograph. The
pictures he took during his vis-
its were carefully archived and
filed away. Little did he know
how these photographs would
be resurrected one day.
In 2007, Schreyer met Kay
Cappleman, director of edu-
cation for the Winter Garden
Heritage Foundation, while
looking for a place to exhibit
his collection of photographs
of Winter Garden's Trailer
City taken as part of a United
Arts Professional Develop-
ment Grant.
Together they created an ex-
hibition in the Edgewater Ho-
tel titled Trailer City: Portrait

Developers of a proposed
assisted-living project in
Ocoee's Prairie Lake commu-,
nity cleared at least one regu-
latory hurdle last week when
city commissioners approved
an amendment to the Planned
Unit Development (PUD).
But the project still may nev-
er be completed as proposed
because a number of residents
who live in the community off
Clarke Road objected.
The developer's preliminary
concept is for a multi-story


building set back from the
main road far enough so that
tall trees would, keep it from
being noticeable. The develop-
er demonstrated that by taking
a tall "cherry picker" to the site
and showing that it is blocked
from view by existing trees.
But homeowners who live
in the area told commission-
ers that the building would
detract from their own view,
as seen from other directions,
and would look "commercial"
rather than residential.
Commissioners agreed that
a four- or five-story building
might be too tall, depending
on the level, or grade, of the
land it was built on in Prai-
rie Lake. But they noted, and
the developer agreed, that the
amendment to the PUD does

Eagle Scout candidate unveils

Windermere 9-11 memorial


Eagle Scout candidate Jeff
Cox capped nine months of
planning Saturday with a
moving dedication ceremony
to remember the victims of
9-11 with a memorial in Win-
dermere's Town Square.
Mayor Gary Bruhn estimat-
ed more than 1,000 residents
turned out for the unveiling of,
the monument that features a
650-pound section of a steel
beam salvaged from the fallen
World Trade Center in New
York City.

Cox, a Windermere resident
and a student at The Crenshaw
School in Winter Garden, was
responsible for securing the
steel mass and then had to find
a way to get it from New York
to Florida. He found many
people willing to help him out
at no cost.

quainted with Cappleman and the Winter Gar-

area. In Last Harvest: A Tribute to the Life and

Winter Garden commission-
ers, Winter Garden Heritage
Foundation and Garden Theatre
board members. Stahd-by will
begin one hour prior to concert
for any unclaimed seats at 8
p.m. Seating will be on a first-
come, first-served basis.
The group 4:2:Five infuses
harmonies with a sense of humor
and style all its own. Evolving
from a street comer barbershop
sound and drawing on funk,
rock, jazz, and blues, 4:2:Five
recreates an instrumental band
with nothing but five voices.

Foreclosure
fines totaling $93,750 as of
Tuesday, and the amount con-
tinues to grow each day. At
the Dec. 10 City Commission
meeting, the elected officials
approved the Code Enforce-
ment Board's recommendation
to begin foreclosure proceed-
ings for failure to come into
compliance.
Smith, who did not respond
to the Times' requests for an
interview, told the commis-
sion she had taken down light
fixtures, an air-conditioning
unit, awning brackets and a
sign. Smith also said she had
pressure-cleaned, caulked and
scraped paint but felt her efforts
had not been recognized by city
officials.
Smith explained some hard-


ships she has endured in recent
years and asked the commis-
sion to table the vote on fore-
closure. The building, she said,
is for sale, and she asked for
more time to find a potential
buyer. The commission voted
unanimously in favor of fore-
closure but delayed filing the
action until January.
Bollhoefer and City Attorney
Kurt Ardaman said that foreclo-
sure is a long process and the
city could always pull the plug
at any time. Bollhoefer said he
feared that if action was not
taken, nothing would be done
to repair the property.
Bollhoefer said at the Dec. 10
meeting that as long as Smith
"moves forward and shows
good faith, there is no risk of

not authorize any specific con-
struction of anything. It merely
makes it possible for plans to
be brought before the city for
future public hearings and for
future analysis by the city staff,
commissioners and people in the
community.
Still, one commissioner voted
no. Commissioner Gary Hood
said the height of a multi-sto-
ry congregate-living facility
caused him concerns and he
did not want to start the process
that might end with such a tall
building.
Some residents of the area
objected on similar grounds.
But one resident said he had
changed his mind after realizing
that a multi-story nursing home
would generate less impact than
single-story homes, in terms of
traffic, since every home usu-
ally has two or three vehicles
and multiple drivers coming and
going at all times of the day and
night.
Mayor Scott Vandergrift
also reminded commissioners
and residents that while people
may say they live in Ocoee for
"peace and quiet" and to "get
away from" tall buildings, all
of Central Florida is urbanizing
from Tampa to Daytona Beach.
As times goes by, he said, every
community will have to build
"up" rather than "out."
In other action commission-
ers:
heard a legislative update
report from the GrayRobinson
law firm on the 60-day session
that begins March 1. Attorney
Fred Leonhardt said that with
so many people running for so
many seats and the "dominoes
falling," it makes it a particu-
larly challenging year to keep
up, much less maneuver specific
legislation. The entire session
also will be operating under the
shadow of Amendment 4, which
will be voted on in November
and if passed would make it dif-
ficult for the state and lbcal com-
munities to develop land. The
amendment would allow voters
to "veto" development plans on

allow cities to put red-light cam-

city roads. They said that all of
the proposed bills will require
revenue from tickets to be shared
by the state and local communi-
ties, and placing city-controlled
cameras on state roads would
at least make it "cost neutral"
for cities, rather than a money-
losing practice. State roads have
.more traffic and will generate
more money.

Rees asked how long Smith's
foreclosure could last, Arda-
man estimated between a few
months to a couple of years,
depending on how aggressively
Smith might defend her case in
court. The extent of Smith's de-

4A The West Orange Times Thursday, February 25, 2010


Opinion


Families will soon begin receiving a let-
ter from the U.S. Census, which provides
a historical snapshot of America every 10
years. It is vitally important for everyone to
participate in the brief survey. The Census
headcount is the way the number of seats
in Congress is determined for each state,
and it helps direct government spending.
But it is also important for families in
West Orange to be on the alert for potential
scams disguised as the Census to try to get
personal information for identity theft.
Florida's Consumer Services Division
warns that the Census will not ask for per-
sonal financial information such as credit
card or bank account numbers and will not
ask for your Social Security number.
Census-takers might visit your home,


and if they do they will be carrying proper
identification and a letter from the Cen-
sus director on official letterhead that you
may ask to see. Even so, Florida's con-
sumer service agency recommends that
you "never invite a Census-taker into your
home."
Also, the Census Bureau does not solicit
information via e-mail or through the In-
ternet, so "any Web site that pops up dis-
guised as a Census survey is fraudulent."
If you have friends or family members
who might be susceptible to these types of
scams, take the time to offer them gentle
reminders about the need to be cautious,
not only during this coming Census but at
all times when dealing with surveys and
unsolicited inquiries.


Editor,

My grandfather, Ralph Floyd, worked
for Roper Growers' gas station till the day
he died. That was 38 years ago. No,.he did
not die there; he died at home of a massive
heart attack.
It was located on Dillard Street in Winter
Garden. And across from there, of course,
is their home office, in which my mother
worked for years also.
I used to love to go to the station when
my grandma, Thelma "Trixie" Floyd, took
him lunch, and I would drink a Yoo-Hoo
with him.
I loved the way that the grease would
smell-on him as he would pick me up to
hug me on those days. He taught me how
to change tires as I was a tomboy and
lots of other stuff that I am proud of. I even


liked it when he would hold me up and let
me wash those windshields.
I do miss him and still wish that I could
have those long talks with him like I did
when I was young. He could talk to anyone,
and that seems to have become a lost art
these days.
Those days are long gone, but I do wish
that we could sit down with each other like
days gone by. But it seems like the only
thing we do anymore is sit in front of our
desks on the computers or watch TV. If we
could use the art of talking to each other,
this world would be better off. And there is
an art to it, as I learned from my grandfa-
ther. Don't be afraid of it.,He wasn't.

Editor's Notebook

By Jerry Jackson


From our archives

Old Times


Nearly 50 years ago, one of my aunts and
uncles lived near downtown Orlando in a
cute studio apartment on a city bus route.
My aunt took the bus to work, and as a visi-
tor to their home from the "countryside"
of West Orange County, I thought it sure
had that big-city feel, Today the city bus is
part of the lifeblood of West Orange, and
if you have not noticed, this region is no
longer rural countryside.
Still, the bus is a relative newcomer to
our part of Central Florida, not integrated
fully into our lifestyles. It will take time.
But it will take more than that. It will
take effort, from the top down and the
bottom up, from community and business
leaders to everyday people. For most of us,
it is a challenge to "step out of our comfort
zone" and try something different, such as
riding the bus.
For those who do not know, the Lynx
transit system is tax supported by Orlando,
Orange, Seminole and Osceola counties,
a "tri-county" operation now extending a
little bit into neighboring counties via natu-
ral corridors such as State Road 50.
Bus No. 30, for example, runs all the
way from east Orange County through
Ocoee and Winter Garden on S.R. 50 to
Lake County. South Lake residents can,
take Xpress Link 204, which runs from a
"park-and-ride" in Clermont on U.S. 27,
to the main Lynx terminal in downtown
Orlando.
Those bus routes are popular, sustained
by user-revenue and good ridership num-
bers. But the Link 27 bus, which ran for a
few years through neighborhoods of Win-
ter Garden and Ocoee, was cancelled for
lack of riders just last year: Now Link 442,
between the West Oaks Mall and Winter
Garden Village at Fowler Groves, is sched-
uled to be dropped later this year. Those
fixed-route buses are being replaced by
smaller buses, which carl carry 12 to 14
people and pick up passengers who make
appointments in advance.
For flexibility, the new "Pick-Up" line
service is superior, and connects to major
bus stops for regular scheduled service
with the big buses, which can seat more
than 40 people at a time.
During the coming year I'll be explain-
ing how the Lynx system works, how it can
be improved and how you can help ensure
its survival in West Orange County. The
bus will be more important than ever to
the economy of this region in the future,
and it's imperative that it be successfully
linked to commuter rail and the bullet train
from. Tampa, now that those projects are


being fast-tracked.
Yes, public transportation has its limi-
tations and never will replace the corive-
nience of automobiles. But the city bus has
a long record of service to working people,
dating back to 1931 in metro Orlando,
which only now is maturing into an urban
center on par with the great metropolitan
regions of America.
If you have not noticed, West Orange
County is part and parcel of that growth.
We're all heading into the future together.
Let's hop on the bus.

Nuggets and notes
The brieftour that Orange County school
system administrator Andrew Jenkins gave
me of Westside Tech during the recent Day
of Beauty fund-raiser was a step back in
time in more ways than one. Jenkins, now
senior administrator for adult and commu-
nity education, once walked those same
halls as a student himself in the early 1970s
when it was Charles R. Drew High School.
As local schools were being integrated,
Jenkins transferred to Ocoee High School,
where he became an outstanding scholar-
athlete. I reminded Jenkins that I knew that
for a fact, because I was a young sports
writer and editor at the time and reported
on many a game when Jenkins was a leader
on the basketball court, wearing the red and
white Ocoee Cardinal uniform...
The cozy new Bistro 24 restaurant in
downtown Winter Garden has gotten off to
a great start. Not only is the ambiance nice,
the food and beverages are getting an en-
thusiastic thumbs up from locals who know
a thing or two about quality dining.
Rod Reeves, the community's prominent
pen-and-ink artist, was there on opening
day. He, along with a friend, sampled
gourmet sandwiches that earned their ap-
proval. Reeves also praised the iced tea,
noting, very astutely I believe, that many
fine establishments fall flat when it comes
to brewing tea. So far, so good with Bistro
24. And I can also vouch for the great Ital-
ian coffee blend it serves.
Owner-operators Karen and Wesley
Hime and their family members are apolo-
getic to patrons about the wait-times, but
the kinks and mechanics of the breakfast-
lunch operation are still being worked out.
Bistro 24, adjacent to the Attic Door on
Plant Street, has all the makings of an-
other great addition to Winter Garden's
downtown dining scene, which has been
drawing raves from diners, food critics and
many publications from throughout metro
Orlando.

Explore Florida's network of trails


The Florida Department of Environmen-
tal Protection's (DEP) Office of Greenways
& Trails (OGT) is joining the Florida Trail
Association (FTA) to encourage Floridians
and tourists to celebrate Florida Hiking
Trails Month by enjoying an energizing
hike on one of Florida's many scenic trails.
Gov. Charlie Crist also recently signed a
proclamation inviting residents and visi-
tors alike to explore Florida's outstanding
variety of hiking trails.
"Florida's naturally beautiful greenways
and trails offer a simple, scenic path to
fitness and attract visitors from all over
the world," said Jena Brooks, director of
the DEP Office of Greenways & Trails.
"Thanks to the support of the Florida Trail
Association and many statewide partners,
Florida has a vast network of trails that pro-
mote eco-tourism and economic benefits
for the state. State-managed greenways and
trails alone reported a record attendance of
more than four million visitors in 2009,
which translates into an estimated $68 mil-
lion in spending by visitors."
Altogether more than 8,000 miles of


hiking and multi-use land trails crisscross
the state with scenic vistas ranging from
the rustic pine forests and rivers of North
Florida to the tropical, marine paradise of
the Florida Keys. The nationally designat-
ed Florida Trail, which when completed
will extend 1,400 miles, includes loop and
linear trails built and maintained by FTA
volunteers on public lands in cooperation
with the U.S. Forest Service.
"Beyond the hustle and bustle of city
noise and the miles of concrete, there exists
a world of wonder and adventure through-
out Florida," said Deborah Stewart-Kent,
executive director of the Florida Trail As-
sociation.
"The Florida Trail, which stretches
from the Big Cypress National Preserve
to the Gulf Islands National Seashore in
the Panhandle, is a wonderful option for
experiencing the beauty and mystery of
natural Florida during Florida Hiking
Trails Month."

Oakland Police Chief Tim
Driscoll presented crime and
traffic statistics for the past
three years to the Oakland
Town Commission at its Feb.
9 meeting. He said he was
pleased to see that, overall,
crimes had decreased in 2009
from the previous year.
Under Part 1 crimes, which
are defined as major felonies,
there were 30 burglaries in
2007, 16 in 2008 and 10 in
2009.
The number of larceny
crimes was 33 in 2007. Last
year, it went down to 27 from
36 in 2008.
Last year's robbery count
was 1, as opposed to 3 in 2008
and 2 in 2007.
Motor vehicle thefts have
remained about the same, with
6 in 2007, 6 in 2008 and 7 in


2009.
Aggravated assault cases
numbered 8 in 2007,4 in 2008
and 6 in 2009.
There were no murders in the
town in the last three years.
While there were no forcible
sex offenses in 2007, there was
1 in 2008 and 1 in 2009.
The total number of Part 1
violent crimes (those commit-
ted against a person) was 10 in
2007 and 8 in both 2008 and
2009.
Non-violent crimes (those
committed against property)
were tallied at 69 in 2007, 58
in 2008 and 44 in 2009.
Driscoll said the value of
stolen property increased each
year: $87,527 in 2007, $148,369
in 2008 and $152,611 in 2009.
The Value of the property that
was recovered was $51,746

Of those Part 1 crimes, the

Oakland Nature Preserve restores Longleaf Pine


By Peggy Sias Lantz
Special to the Times
Oakland Nature Preserve was once a natural up-
land sandhill-to-wetland-to-Lake Apopka habitat.
Then, in the late 1800s, many of the native trees
and herbs of the uplands were cleared and the area
planted in citrus. When the citrus died in the freezes
of the 1980s, a slash pine plantation was planted.
Remnants of citrus and slash pine remain.
One of the primary trees of Florida's sandhills is
Longleaf Pine. A Longleaf Pine can live to be 400
years old, but it starts life very slowly as a bunch
of needles that look like grass.
Longleaf Pines evolved in a habitat of lightning-
struck fires. The fires burned the duff, and the seed-
lings protected their buds by lying low in the sand.
Meanwhile, the seedlings were sending down a


taproot as much as four feet deep.
When it is ready, a grass-stage seedling can shoot
up three feet in one growing season. Then, it looks
like a bottlebrush. Its needles are long and bright
green and droop downward in a delicate arc. Its
growing bud is above the fires that bum through
the pine needles and dead grasses.
Longleaf Pine is the only tree that the endangered
Red-cockaded Woodpecker will excavate its cavity
in. These forests used to cover millions of acres of
the southeastern coast and Florida. Lumbering and
development has reduced them to about 2 percent
of their former spread.
Oakland Nature Preserve's efforts to re-establish
a Longleaf Pine habitat will never replace the forest,
but every little bit helps.
Visit www.oaklandnaturepreserve.org for infor-
mation about the preserve and how to help.


Celebrating Lent
The Oakland Church Presbyterian Women began their Lenten journey by hosting an
Ash Wednesday Prayer and Soup Luncheon. Attending as their guest was the Rev. Ron
Mizer (at left), pastor of Mt. Zion AME Church, in Oakland, with Dr. Robert P. Hines, pas-
tor of the host church. A free will offering was taken to benefit the Beth El Migrant Food
Pantry in Wimauma. The women hope to continue this as a yearly event.

Lynx bus service changes outlined


By Jerry Jackson


Proposed changes to Lynx bus routes and ser-
vice, some of which affect West Orange County,
were outlined at two lightly attended public hear-
ings in Winter Garden last week.
The Link 442 bus, which circulates between
Winter Garden
Village at Fowl-
er's Grove out-
door mall and
the West Oaks
Mall in Ocoee, is
scheduled to end .| "

vate funding from

Another bus route that crosses into West Or-
ange County, the Link 125 Silver Star Road
Crosstown, is being realigned to serve the new
Walmart at John Young Parkway and Princeton
Street near College Park. The Walmart is sched-
uled to open soon. Bus 125 also goes to the West
Oaks Mall in Ocoee off Clarke Road.
Also, the new PickUpLine 612 bus serving


lei
ar


much of Winter Garden and nearby areas is pro-
posed to be expanded in April. The service terri-
tory will be extended south to the Winter Garden
Village at Fowler's Grove, making up for some
of the anticipated loss of access when the 442
bus stops running to the outdoor mall.

its regular meeting on March 25, at 1 p.m. in the
Lynx central station board room in Orlando.


Several of Jack Ross' family members attended the celebration last week, including his
daughter, Brenda Smith, and grandchildren Will, Alli and Sara Smith.

Jack Ross honored at Winter Garden museum


More than 100 friends, family and well-wish-
ers from throughout Central Florida gathered at
the Winter Garden Heritage Museum last week
to celebrate the life of Jack Ross, a patriarch of.
West Orange County.
Ross, who was born in Oakland in 1928 and
lives in Windermere, is a lifelong citrus grower-
and one of many descendants of local pioneer
families who have remained devoted to the area
through the decades.
A fifth-generation resident of West Orange,
Ross is a descendant of Judge James Gamble
Speer, a founder of Oakland and by historic ac-
counts the person who suggested the name of
Orlando for the tiny community that would grow


With caring hearts and

compassionate service, we

are committed to the privacy

and safety of each guest.


to become the largest city in Central Florida.
According to Oakland The Early Years,
Ross is the great-great-grandson of Speer and
descended through the Sadler and Tilden families
of West Orange.
Ross, who still has a few citrus trees near
Winter Garden, has devoted much of his time
in recent years to volunteer work with the Oak-
land Presbyterian Church and civic groups and
as a philanthropist supporting many local causes
including the Heritage Foundation, and its mu-
seums. Ross and his wife, Pat Pease Ross, have
two grown children and seven grandchildren, all
still living in West Orange County.

Lady Knights return

to winning form

By Chris Silveira
The Ocoee High School softball team picked up two wins
last week with victories over Jones and Wekiva after a rough
start to its season that was really not all that unexpected by
new Head Coach Shannon Johnson.
"I scheduled the teams we played early in the season
to make it tough and ,ee how it would go," said Johnson.
"We're a young team with only one senior, but we're get-
ting there."
The Knights opened their regular season against Apopka,
and despite out-hitting the Blue Darters 11-4 and loading
the bases in three consecutive innings, they lost the game
4-2. Ocoee senior pitcher Taylor Skipper struggled with her
control, walking six batters and four errors by the defense
helped the more experienced Apopka team come away with
the victory.
"We're out-hitting the other teams so it boils down to
pitching and catching and doing the little things right," said
Johnson. "I can't say I'm pleased, because I know what they
are capable of, even being young. We're going to have to be
error free and score five runs a game. Our pitchers are going
to throw strikes, but people are going to put the ball in play
against us, and we have to be mentally tough to field that
ball and make that one play. One ball, one pitch, one play
and then we move on and quit making it bigger than it is.
I'm trying to get that through their mind."
Apopka hosted Winter Park in their second game and again
showed a lot of punch with their bats getting 13 hits, but
they left too many runners on base and lost 9-6 in a game
shortened by darkness.
A loss to Boone in a makeup game that was rained out
followed, but in their fourth game of the season the Knights
took out some frustration on Jones in a 19-0 rout.
Freshman Madeline Largin picked up the first win of her
high school career, and fellow freshman and third baseman
Mary Warren continued to perform well on the field and at
the plate, going 2-4 with a double.
"I can't say enough of how proud I am of my freshmen
thus far," said Johnson. "Madeline doesn't throw as hard
as most girls around the district; however, her composure
is shaken by no one. And Mary is going to be someone to
reckon with in years to come. She's a player."
Tina Smoley, Jaice Metherall and Sam Mazzaei all went
3-3 with Mazzaei picking up a triple.
I moved Smoley from the right side to the left side this
fall," said Johnson. "She puts the ball in play and moves us
around. People can't get her out."
Largin got her second win of the season for the Knights
in an 11-9 victory over Wekiva last Friday, and .it was also
Ocoee's second home game this season called because of
darkness.
It's something no one can plan for or wants," said Johnson.
"The safety of our kids has to be the most important aspect
of the game, and it became a slugfest on our end, and you
can't predict how long innings will go."
Wekiva had only three earned runs as defensive errors
continue to plague Ocoee.
"We have to be mentally tougher and own it much more,"
said Johnson. "Being youhg is not an excuse. We have to

control us."
Despite the defensive lapses, the Knights continue to im-
press on offense,'pounding out 14 hits against Wekiva and
were led by Giselle Delgado who was 3-3 (two singles, one
'double, and a walk), Mary Warren 3-4 (two-singles, one
double) and Tiffany Coates 2-4 (single and a triple).
Ocoee faces a tough road opponent this week traveling
to West Orange and then returns home on Friday to take on
another young team, the Dr. Phillips Panthers.


OARS continues reign
at Southern Sprints
Orlando Area Rowing Society (OARS) athletes
participated in the 27th Annual Southern Sprints In-
door Rowing Championships recently at the Florida
Institute of Technology in Melbourne. For the sixth
consecutive year, the OARS squad captured the All-
Points Trophy.
More than 90 OARS athletes, mostly West Orange
area high school students and some eighth-graders,
participated along with 985 rowers who competed in
1,101 individual and .71 relay erg races. The OARS
mens and women teams earned medals in individual
and relay entries. Most notably, Ryan Furey took first
place in the high school lightweight men's event with a
time of 6:24.1. The score qualified Furey for the Crash
B Sprints World Indoor Rowing Championship to
be held in Boston.

The OARS team celebrates with the All-
Points Trophy at the Southern Sprints
Indoor Rowing Championships.


Lady Panthers headed

to state Final Four


Alexis Brown poured in a
career-high 32 points as the Dr.
Phillips High varsity girls bas-
ketball team rolled to a 69-48
victory over host St. Petersburg
to capture the Region 2 cham-
pionship and-send the Lady
Panthers (30-1) to the state Fi-
nal Four for the first time since
1992..
DP used a swarming pressure
defense to disrupt the Green
Devils' backcourt play and the
strategy was effective from the
start. The Lady Panthers built
a 14-3 lead in the first quarter
but St. Pete wouldn't quit that
easily. After a 7-0 Devils' run,
a layup and subsequent three
by Brown pushed the Panther
lead to 19-10 and they never
looked back. A 14-2 run to open
the second quarter led to a 37-
19 lead at the half and the lead
swelled to as many as 24 mid-.
way through the fourth quarter.
DP took no chances and contin-
ued to apply the pressure until
about two minutes remaining
and the celebration began.
Dr. Phillips will face South
Florida powerhouse Miami


Lourdes this Friday; Feb. 26,
in Lakeland at 8:30 p.m.
The Lady Panthers reached
the regional title game by
knocking off host Apopka 47-
41 last week. Sydnei McCaskill
scored 18 points and went 10-.
12 from the free throw line,
while Hannah Schaible (15
points, five steals, 8-10 FT) and
Brown (12 points, five assists,
six steals) followed suit with
strong performances.
DP found success early by
driving to the basket, a missing
ingredient in their lone defeat
one week ago. After trailing
by one, 9-8, the Panthers went
on a 12-5 second quarter run to
take a 20-14 halftime lead. The
lead stretched to as many as 16
points in the second half, but
Apopka wouldn't go down eas-
ily.
After two quick threes and a
layup, the Blue Darters closed
the margin to just three points,
but DP nailed 18 of 22 free
throws overall, mostly in the
fourth quarter, to secure the vic-
tory and advance to the regional
championship.

Lady Warrior

lacrosse off

to 4-0 start
'By Chris Silveira

The West Orange Warrior girl's lacrosse
team is off to a 4-0 start highlighted by
a 9-8 road win last Friday night against
district rival Bishop Moore.
Senior Ashley Weldon opened the scor-
ing for the Warriors early in the first half
and finished the game with four goals and
gne assist.- The West Orange defense has
been solid all season and Kristin Litteral
was a wall for the Warriors in goal holding
off the Hornets offense with 12 saves.
Kaylee Hoover and Amanda Graziano
had four ground ball controls followed
by Jennifer Armbruster with three ground
balls and four draw controls.
Armbruster continues to excel on offense
as well as she netted five goals and had
three assists in the Warriors 15-2 win over
Colonial last Thursday. She was the leading
scorer in West Orange's season opener with
six goals in a 15-3 thumping of Dr. Phillips
and scored four more goals in 17- 6 win
over Barron Collier in the Warriors second
game of the season.


Lady Warriors Amanda Graziano, (1-r) Elizabeth Kelly, and Ashley Weldon are off to a 4-0 start and are consid-
goalie Kristin Litteral, Jennifer Armbruster, Kaylee Hoover, ered one of the top teams in the state this season.


West Orange Head Coach Mary Hop-
kins likes to mix things up from game to
game and it requires a commitment from
her varsity players that has led to a very
successful program with numerous All-
Americans and multiple college scholar-
ship offers in the ten years she has coached
at West Orange.
"Everybody who makes varsity for West
Orange has to be able to play every posi-


tion but goalie; at the same level and the
same intensity," said Hopkins at a recent
practice. "You need to have character and
the desire and be here with a sense of heart
that you want to be the best."
And how does that translate to the field
of play?
"We never present the same teams or the
same plays twice so any team that comes
to scout us will not get the same plays,"


said Hopkins. "The teams that come scout
us will not get the same defensive clears,
and they won't get the same players in the
same positions in the field."
West Orange has two road games this
week traveling to Ocoee on Wednesday and
to Edgewater on Friday before returning
home for three consecutive games against
East Ridge, Wekiva and Lake Howell to
start in March.

Panthers reunite

for home run derby
By Chris Silveira

When Joe Mulvihill stepped up to the plate this past Saturday
at the annual Dr. Phillips baseball alumni home run derby, it was
the first time he had swung a bat in more than 20 years. Dressed in
sweats and sandals, Mulvihill was the first of the over 20 former
players on hand to hit one over the fence, but it really came as no
surprise as this former Panther who graduated in 1989 had many
"firsts" when he played, as a pitcher and outfielder.
"I hit the first home run in Dr. Phillips history in 1988," said
Mulvihill, who was clearly having a good time hanging out with
former teammates. "I hit the first home run at the Dr. Phillips
ballpark in 1989 and had the first win as a pitcher."
Sitting in the dugout watching others trying to hit one out,
Mulvihill fondly recalled the memories of his playing days.
"Coming here reminds you what it was like to grow up and
how carefree life was back then, and I'm just proud to be here,"
said Mulvihill. "Sitting here and looking at the field and thinking
about all the great memories we had here and it's nice not to just
reminisce but to feel it. And hitting a home run of all people,
they did not want me hitting a home run. They may never hear
the end of this. I may buy a sponsorship banner with my face on
it for the outfield where I hit it."
Current Head Coach Mike Bradley, who also played at Dr. Phil-
lips and was part of the 1996 state championship team, organized
the eveht, and former teammates on hand Saturday appreciate
the efforts Bradley is making to keep the alumni connected to
the program.
"I think it's great," said Chris Quarles, who as a pitcher in
1996 was First Team All-Conference, Region and Central Florida.
and was Second Team All-State. "He knows what the tradition
is about here at Dr. Phillips. He is the epitome of what we used
to have on a sign down in the batting cage, which was...'desire,
drive and determination'. We always had slogans put around
for a visual reminder of our goals. To see somebody we played
with now come back as the head coach is an honor for him and
an honor for us to watch him evolve the program and take it to
the next level." '
Quarles' teammates in 1996, centerfielder Brad Gierke and
third baseman Brandon Wood, were also participating on Sat-
urday and talked about the commitment they all made as seniors
prior to the championship season. -
"The first day of summer baseball we put a sign up in the
locker room that said 'the road to the state championship starts
today,'" said Gierke. "What we lived by day-by-day is that big



Lady Warrior softball tops Boone


The West Orange High var-
sity girls softball team upped its
record to 4-0 last week with a
4-3 victory over Boone.
Molly Billue allowed only
two runs off six hits in four
and a third innings of work on
the mound. She also went two-
for-three at the plate, knocking
in an RBI and scoring a run
herself.
Breanna Sniffen entered the
game in relief and gave up one
run off three hits in nearly three
innings.
West Orange exploded offen-
sively in the first inning, scor-
ing all four runs early. Proulx
doubled off the centerfield wall,
and Roberts and Devan Richen-
berg followed with a pair of
squeeze bunts.


S"We got off to-a great start for
a change, and that kind of set the
tone," said WOHS Head Coach
Bobby Brewer. "The game had
the feel of a playoff game with a
real good crowd and a lot of big
plays made on both sides."-
Coming through with big hits
to help lead the Lady Warriors
to victory were Kelly Lopez,
Missy Harvey, Val Proulx,
Alexis Roberts, Larissa Piodo-
mani and Emily Ross.
Richenberg also made the key
defensive play of the game with
a great diving grab ofa ball that
was headed for extra bases late
in the game.
"We made a couple of mis-
takes on defense, but the girls
just keep coming back with
something extra,"' Brewer said.
"Sniffen and Billue have given
us a'chance to win every night
out, and our defense attacks any
ball put in play. We are playing
with a lot of confidence right
now, and it is someone else ev-
ery night stepping up. We have
swung the bats very well so far,
but I think when the weather
heats up we will swing it even
better."
Earlier last week, West Or-
ange defeated East Ridge 5-1.
Billue pitched four innings and
allowed one run off four hits.
Sniffen fired a one-hit shutout
in three innings on the mound.
Harvey stepped up at the
plate, going two-for-three with
an RBI and a run scored.
"Harvey has really stepped up
as our leader and had a couple
real good at-bats tonight scor-
ing runners early in the game,"
Brewer said. I think as long
as we work hard and keep our
selves grounded we have a
chance to do something good.

picture."
"It included a date list of every milestone, from the first day
we could step on the field through the regular-season schedule
all the. way down to the time and date and location of the state
championship in Sarasota," said Wood. "We had the whole thing
mapped out as a visualization of where we have to be and this
is what our record needs to be by this date and there was a
highlighted area that showed we can't lose another game after
this point." .
When asked if there was a turning point in the season that
helped propel them to the state title, the memories came flood-
ing back.
"We went 10-0, USA Today ranked us the No. 1 team in the
state, and it kind of went to our head a little bit," said Wood.
"We lost the next three games, we were arguing with each other,
getting into fist fights in the locker room and on the practice
field, but then we all came together and realized we can't do it'
individually. It was going to take a team effort, and from that.
point on we were a blinch of driven people."'
,"The year before we had lost when we were one win away
from going to state, and it was heartbreaking for all of us, espe-
cially the guys who were graduating that year, so we said were
not going to let that happen to us," said Quarles. "We lost four
or five good seniors, but there were guys who were on the JV
team the year prior who stepped up."


"If you didn't pick it up and you weren't doing your part, you
had to worry about a coach running you laps, but you had to be
more worried about one of your teammates, in the parking lot or
in the locker room getting on your butt," said Wood. "We used
to call each other and curfew each other on Saturday nights and
before games. On game days we used to wear Army fatigues."
"We looked at it like we were going to battle," said Quarles.
"This is what this program is about, and everyone was on the
same page, and once we got the momentum started it was hard
to stop."
Fifteen years later as they hit and threw alongside the current
Panther team, who came out to shag balls for them, the former
players talked what it meant back then and what is still means
today to play baseball at Dr. Phillips.
"For me it was the Panther pride," said Wood. "We knew from
the minute we got here what was expected. This isn't any old
high school. You just walked onto maybe the most elite high
school baseball program in the nation."
Gierke, whose dad once headed the Panthers program, is happy
to see the team in the hands of Bradley.
"It's good to see somebody that wants to keep this tradition at
the school going, and that's something I knew he would do the
second he got a chance to come over here as an assistant and now
as a head coach," said Gierke. "There's nobody better suited for
this job in my opinion."

Mrs. Lynn's kindergarten class at Windermere Elementary celebrated the 100th day of.
school with a surprise visit from 'Zero the Hero' (Brad Kuehn) and 'Zerolina' (Kaley Lynn).
The students collected 100 objects from home, counted out 100 snacks and made their
own 100-day shirts.


Keene's Crossing


Third-grader Colton Scharfeld, joined by teacher Mrs. Garza (left), Principal Dr. Rahim
Jones (center) and representatives from the American Red Cross and Trinity Financial
(Antoinette Perez and Greg Scharfeld), helped lead Keene's Crossing's Coins for Haiti
program that raised more than $2,000 for American Red Cross. Trinity Financial matched
the amount to increase the donation to $4,040.


Lakeview Middle














Marielle Bakker (left) and Nayrim Vega, 8th-grade students in Ms.
Anderson's class, took thrill seeking to a new level as they created
a bungee jump for a Barbie doll. Their objective was to give Barbie
the greatest thrill while still ensuring that she is safe. This means
that she should come as close as possible to the ground without
hitting the floor Students conducted an experiment, collected data
and then used the data to predict the maximum number of rubber
bands that should be used to give Barbie a safe jump from a height
of 60 feet. In this lesson, students determined the slope of a line,
made predictions and examined linear functions.


Retired Educators to meet
The Orange County Retired Educators Association will meet Thursday, March 4, 10 a.m., at Col-
lege Park United Methodist Church, 644 W. Princeton St. Visit ocrea-fl.org or call 407-677-0446 for
