We provide physicals, immunizations, ADHD/behavior consultations and treatment, acne and eczema care and so much more.Phone: 407-770-1414 1583 E. Silver Star Rd. Ocoee, FL 34761 www.GrowingTogetherPeds.comOpen: Monday-Friday 8am-5pm Same day GABBY BAQUERONEWS EDITOR An online petition requesting signatures in support of Winter Gardens traditions has been making the rounds on Facebook. The petition, titled Keep Winter Garden Traditions Alive, reached 659 signatures as of May 14 and was started by Winter Garden resident Lauren Bennett-Flemister. Bennett-Flemister, who has lived in Winter Garden for 51 years, said she started the petition out of concern after hearing of neighbor Joseph Richardsons petition. The purpose of my petition is to show the city of Winter Gar den how many residents support honoring our traditions and keeping them intact, BennettFlemister said. Richardson, a self-proclaimed secular humanist, is an advocate for the Freethought Community. He has made repeated efforts during the last three years to persuade city officials to either modify its invocation policy or change to silent meditations, as the cities of Longwood and Winter Springs have done. Richardson believes the existing ordinance, which dictates who is allowed to get on the citys invocator lists and sets out selection procedures for invocators, creates an opportunity for discrimination. Although he does not believe it was written with the intent to discriminate, he insists it allows commissioners to apply the rules in a discriminatory manner. I agree that in the original resolution, they said it is not their intent to discriminate but to apply the rules in a nondiscriminatory way, he said. But thats obviously not the way the rules are working. And the fact is, we warned them about this three years ago. Here we are three years later, and its been made abundantly clear theyre not choosing certain people. It just reinforces the idea that they are indeed using this policy in a discriminatory manner. He notes the commission has yet to choose him to do an invocation in the last three years, despite his name being on the list, while having chosen a couple of different people four times in that same timeframe. They could decide, using the same rules in existence right now, to never pick a Christian invocator if they wanted, Richardson said. And it doesnt have to be religious discrimination. The point is, they can discriminate either for religious reasons or for personal reasons if they dont like a particular person or for no reason at all. But Bennett-Flemister believes there is no need to change the policy and fears doing so could erode the citys community traditions. From talking to people, the general consensus has been strongly in favor of leaving things alone, she said. They like Winter Garden the way it is and dont want it to change. If we allow change to some of our traditions, they are afraid it will open the door for other traditions to be changed as well. The invocation policy, implemented a little more than three years ago, requires invocators to be a representative of a 501(c)(3) organization and allows commissioners to choose who leads the invocation from an established volunteer invocator list. For me this is bigger than who presents an invocation, she said. This is about changing Winter Garden one piece at a time. You can exercise your right to not attend a function if it offends you. ... But why must you change the way things have traditionally been done? Bennett-Flemister also emphasized concern for one of the Christmas festivities, Light Up Winter Garden, which she believes Richardson is against. But Richardson said he has no quarrel with the holiday celebration. Winter Garden City Manager Mike Bollhoefer was initially unaware of the content of both petitions, but he said the city has not discussed or considered any changes to Light Up Winter Garden and added that the city has no obligation to respond in any manner to the petitions. Im not sure why people are worried about that (Light Up Winter Garden), Bollhoefer said. We have not discussed any changes to the Light up Winter Garden celebration.Winter Garden resident starts online petition to preserve citys traditionsThe petition was created in response to another petition regarding the citys current invocation policy in commission meetings.ERIC GUTIERREZSTAFF WRITERWith summer around the corner, its no doubt that families will be hitting the water to beat the heat. To ensure the little ones stay safe around the water this summer, the Roper YMCA will be partnering with the Maxey Community Center to educate children about water safety. Swim instructors from the Roper YMCA will bring the Ys Safety Around Water program to Bouler Pool at 362 11th St., Winter Garden. Safety Around Water is a YMCA national program that we offer, Roper YMCA Executive Director Chris Demetriou said. Swimming is a major, major skill that we feel every kid should have the opportunity to learn. The program will take place from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. starting May 23 to 25 and continue the following week from May 28 to June 1. The program is limited to 100 children, and registration is open. Those who are interested can register at the Roper YMCA or at the Maxey Community Center. Spots are available on a first-comefirst-serve basis, so individuals are encouraged to sign up imme diately, Demetriou said. Sign up immediately because when we offered it at the Roper Y in April, it was incredibly popular, Demetriou said. Thats our hope. We want people to sign up for this. Demetriou said the Roper YMCA earned the 2018 Florida State Alliance of YMCAs, Inc. Safety Around Water/Swim Lessons Grant, which allows them to offer the program for free. We applied for a grant with Y-USA and we were awarded that grant, Demetriou said. This is completely free to the community. We were thrilled to have the support from Y-USA to be able to do this program outside of the Roper Y. Demetriou added building the relationship with the city of Winter Garden and the Maxey Community Center is the first step in offering the program outside of the Roper YMCA facility itself. We wanted to do our best to help and continue to support the city of Winter Garden, Demetriou said. This is the start of us expanding it from just the Roper Y to the city of Winter Garden. Next year, depending on the impact were able to make, we would love to see what an expanded role would look like. Demetriou said children who participate in the program learn three basic umbrella skills that pertain to water safety: ground rules, water skills and rescue. They learn (ground rules such as) how to ask permission before entering the water always swimming with a parent or adult, sun protection and then any other generic pool rules Demetriou said. Some of those water skills include entering the water safely, floating and kicking. Additionally, children will learn about breath control and what to do in emergency situations, Demetriou said. Of course, theres the rescue piece which is very important, Demetriou said. If you have a friend thats in a serious situation, instead of you jumping in (the water) yourself because were working with kids find something that floats that we can throw to them to help pull them in. Roper YMCA to teach swim safety program at Bouler Pool IF YOU GOSAFETY AROUND WATER WHEN: 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. May 23 to 25 and May 28 to June 1 WHERE: Bouler Pool, 362 11th St., Winter Garden INFORMATION: Roper YMCA, (407) 656-6430The Roper YMCA is oering its Safety Around Water program for free to 100 children.

4 WEST ORANGE TIMES & OBSERVER | THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2018 would span across three buildings: building 100 will be 104,950 square feet, building 200 will be 145,164 square feet, and building 300 will be 402,582 square feet. The project has been named Distribution 429. Orlandos already-bustling industrial market just got more active, said Deidre Krause of The PR Company, who handles public relations for McCraney Property Company. With a new exterior look (and) keeping with the companys belief that industrial is the new retail, Distribution 429 will reside in the epicenter of Ocoee one of Central Floridas submar kets with the lowest vacancy rates for industrial space. A groundbreaking ceremony is slated for this month. Each building at the new industrial park will feature McCraney Property Companys signature clean faades and high-finish benchmark-setting warehouse design, the company stated in a prepared statement. The Ocoee market is Central Floridas newest epicenter for industrial growth, President and CEO of McCraney Property Company Steven McCraney said. With the demand for last-mile hubs continuing to outpace supply, industrial developments along key arteries that enable tenants to move product throughout the Greater Central Florida market and beyond will prove invaluable to companys distribution strategies. Ocoee is just one location in the southeast seeing development from McCraney Property Company. The company also has projects in some form of development underway in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and in other areas of Florida. Shallow bay industrial buildings, ranging from 180 feet to 440 feet in depth, is the target property size our company is developing throughout the Southeast, fulfilling demand from tenants seeking to do business in a 5to 50-mile radius from their customer, McCraney said. The market segment for industrial assets under 250,000 square feet represents 70% of the total U.S. warehouse stock but only 17% of completions, as the average U.S. industrial user ranges from 15,000 to 50,000 square feet. As demand for industrial product remains strong in Floridas major markets, we are already seeing strong tenant inter est at Distribution 429. The dwellings are made of mud, so the attackers throw lighted torches and gasoline through the windows, setting the belongings and the wooden rafters ablaze and causing the metal roof to collapse. The villagers, mostly farmers, harvest their land and store the food in small straw huts. The Fulani torch the food supply, too. They make them impover ished, Pastor Ron Tewson said. (Even) if their lives are spared, they have lost everything. They have to leave; they cant stay there.BUILDING HOUSES, BRINGING HOPETewson, pastor of The Crossings Church in Winter Garden, and three members of his congregation, Mike Palmer, Kevin Dettore and Ed Engstrom, traveled to Nigeria to follow up on a promise made to the family of Danladi Boyi Yarri, whose home was destroyed in an attack last October that killed five of the 10 residents, including several children. A Christmas Eve collection to rebuild Yarri house raised $10,300, more than double the $5,000 necessary to build one home. The four men, who funded their own trip, left the United States April 1, following the Easter Sunday service. Palmer, Dettore and Engstrom returned after one week; Tewson stayed for almost three. Yarris village of Teegbe has about 20 homes and is in the Kogi State of Nigeria in western Africa. He is a native of the area and was known for holding regular church services in his home. Tewson said it was an emotional meeting between his group and the Yarri family. Yarris wife had been viciously attacked, her face slashed and her left arm cut off at the elbow. The money raised at the Winter Garden church had been sent previously to the International Christian Concern organization, so the home was nearing completion by April. It included front and back doors, a long hallway and a series of rooms to the left and right where up to 20 family members can live together. There is no running water; the outhouse and cooking area are set up outside. Tewson participated in a dedication of the house. He said it was a wonderful experience and a huge celebration that included not only the Yarri family but also most of the villagers and their families. They were so extremely grateful, Tewson said. And what it did was it brought hope that somebody cared for them on the other side of the world. That was probably the most touching, somebody cared for them. That just made them feel so special and so valued, and it gave them so much hope.HANDSON HELPMore money raised meant another opportunity to build, so the group went to the Miango Districts village of Zangwra, which was almost entirely destroyed in a rare daytime attack Jan. 25. A total of 17 homes were burned down, but because it was day light, everyone fled and survived. There was a real sense of lost hope, Tewson said, because so many villagers had dispersed. When they returned, they found their homes, as well as friends and family, gone. The village church remained intact, but the pastors home next door was burned, and he and his family had left. The lack of hope was unbeliev able, Tewson said. Life was over. An ICC representative said rebuilding the pastors house would give the residents hope that their village could prosper again. So they built. The four men from The Crossings witnessed a barn-raising, of sorts. Men, women and children about 75 in all came together, and everyone played an important role in the construction. Some women walked to the stream a half-mile away and returned with buckets and barrels of water for the men to use when mixing the concrete. Other women prepared a large cauldron of soup for lunch. Children were put to work, too. Tewson was asked to speak to groups of about 300 villagers multiple times, and he said it was humbling to know the people saw him as the great white hope from America. He traveled with heavy military protection to Central Nigeria to a district called Daffo. On March 8, the Fulani herdsmen destroyed eight villages, killing hundreds of people in one day; these communities are now empty. Ive been all over the world on mission trips, Tewson said. This was unlike anything Ive ever done, because it was seeing evil against a church. He returned home April 19 and shared his trip with his congregation April 22. The pastor said the first home was actually $8,000, because it was built bigger than anticipated, and he asked churchgoers to help raise $3,000. They raised $8,600, and Tewson is considering rebuilding another house in Nigeria. Evil is the best and only way you can describe this, Palmer said of his trip to Nigeria. All the politics, all the culture aside, even religion aside, its just evil acts. It was very eye-opening to me, he said. To see what folks are doing and what theyre experiencing in the face of this type of attack and evil firsthand, as opposed to reading about it, seeing that and talking to the people, and being able to touch the destroyed buildings and smelling the charred wood gives it a level of realism that I dont think you will ever forget. You dont walk away unchanged. Now I have a heart for these people. its brothers and sisters in Christ and in humanity, as well.

The ordinance amends Chapter 18 of the Countys code, which details the existing Fire Prevention and Protection ordinance. The revised ordinance will eliminate the need for the Orange County mayor to publicly issue an emergency burn ban during drought conditions, as emergency burn bans will automatically activate once the Keetch-Buram Drought Index, which is a reference scale created by the State of Florida that measures drought conditions, meets, or exceeds, 500. According to the new ordinance, automatic burn bans will remain in effect until the drought index dips below 500 KBDI for seven consecutive days and is applicable in both unincorporated and incorporated Orange County. The ban prohibits all outdoor burning that has not been specifically permitted, including campfires, bonfires and yard and trash burning. Outdoor burning authorized by the Florida Forest Service is exempt from the ban, as well as the use of outdoor grills and bar becues. Permitted commercial and professional firework displays are also exempt. The public will be notified of active burn bans via press releases issued to local media sources, social media and emergency messaging via the OCFL Alert phone application. Although early discussions regarding enforcement included a criminal penalty of $500 fine and a possible 60-day imprisonment, county commissioners concerns about the severity of the punishment encouraged the removal of such language from the ordinance. The countys fire department and Environmental protection Department will enforce the burn ban by issuing civil citations up to $500 to people who violate the restrictions. FIRE SAFETY TIPS DURING DROUGHT Create at least 30 feet of clean and green space around your home. Clear trash and dead veg etation from your front and backyards. Remove leaves and debris from roofs and gutters. Create a plan and an emer gency kit in case an emergency evacuation is necessary. Monitor local media for updates on road closure and smoke conditions. Use caution when grilling, camping and discarding cigarettes. Call 911 if you see re in your area.

Collis Roofing Inc. will be replacing the roofs at the WGPD 911 Dispatch Center and the police departments gym facility for a total cost of $151,844. The cost includes a 10% contingency, Assistant City Manager of Administrative Services Frank Gilbert said. The roofs have been extensively patched over the years, and they have reached their total life expectancy, Gilbert said. They need to be replaced to ensure the roofs remain properly sealed. Commissioners also approved the purchase of a new backup generator at the WGPD at a cost of $111,170.95, which includes a 10% contingency. The new generator will be powerful enough replace the two older generators at the police department, Gilbert said. The (current) main generator is over 23 years old, has become costly to maintain and the parts are very hard to source, Gilbert said.

Gilbert also said funding for the roof replacements and new generator have been included in the current fiscal year budget.REZONINGSCity leaders voted unanimously to approve the first reading of two rezoning ordinances. Ordinance 18-20 seeks to rezone a 0.26-acre parcel located at 42 E. Smith St. from R-2 residential district to C-3 profession office district. If the second reading of the ordinance is approved, the space will be used as a real-estate office, Gilbert said. Ordinance 18-21 pertains to a 3.32-acre property generally located at 205 Windermere Road. The ordinance seeks to rezone the property from R-1 single-family residential district to Planned Unit Development to allow for the development of an 11,700-squarefoot indoor pool facility and administrative office.

Members of the Bridgewater Parent Teacher Student Organization with help from IKEA and Sherwin Williams redecorated the schools teacher lounge in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, PTSO Vice President Xiomara De Gracia said. They were super excited, De Gracia said. We kept it top secret until (the reveal). When they got there, thats when we let them know that we redecorated their (lounge) and gave them a space to relax in. IKEA donated furniture and designed the lounge, while Sher win Williams donated paint, De Gracia said. Prior to the redecoration, the Bridgewater teacher lounge doubled as a storage area. Various supplies, copy machines and rolls and reams of paper cluttered the space making it look more like a large supply closet than a lounge. The teacher lounge was kind of an area of the school that was being utilized more as a supply area, De Gracia said. They didnt have a fridge. They didnt have much in there. It kind of was a forgotten spot. As we approached Teacher Appreciation Week, one of the ideas that came up was giving the teachers an area where they can go during their break (to) eat, relax, take some time to get their work done and just have an area for them in the school. De Gracia said the decision to redecorate the teacher lounge was a last-minute idea conceived about a week before the reveal. Originally, PTSO members thought the redecoration would be a summer project. That changed when one parent reached out to IKEA seeking furniture donations. IKEA took it a step further and not only donated furniture but also delivered it and designed the lounge quick enough to have the redecoration completed in time for Teacher Appreciation Week. (IKEA) really stepped up lastminute, De Gracia said. When we called IKEA they were like, Well pull it off. We can get the design. Well get it done if you guys want to reveal it for (Teacher Appreciation Week). De Gracia added the teachers are happy with their new lounge and have expressed their grati tude to the PTSO. I had one teacher actually approach me and said, You know, because of things like this, it makes me excited to come and teach the children, because I know I have a group of parents that care and are here for us, De Gracia said. Thats why we do it. Its for them. Principal Andrew Jackson said he was supportive of the makeover from the beginning, adding he was pleasantly surprised with how the teacher lounge turned out. When the parents said they wanted to do something nice for our teachers and suggested a complete makeover of a teacher work room, my response was, Absolutely, Jackson said. I knew they would do an amazing job with the decorations, but when I saw the transformation, I was completely blown away. It is evident our parents appreciate our teachers as the effort to renovate the lounge was substantial. School Bookkeeper Jill Pitchford-Dunn also thanked De Gracia and her fellow PTSO members. The teacher lounge looks absolutely fabulous and (the redecoration) was definitely needed, Pitchford-Dunn said. Thanks for all your hard work. We appreciate you all.

8 WEST ORANGE TIMES & OBSERVER | THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2018 274976 Customers heap praiseon Mohawks Air.oWhen Sofia was 6 months old, she began experiencing fevers and other medical issues such as allergies and obstructive sleep apnea. That prompted her mother, Michelle Rogers, to take Sofia to a doctor who recommended a more hypoallergenic environment at home. Michelle Rogers visited Marks Floors of Minneola, Fla., who recommended Mohawks Air.o, a new soft surface product known for its hypoallergenic properties. The mother of three had Air.o installed throughout much of her homethe entire upstairs including a master bedroom, nursery, hallway and closet. Soon after, Michelle said Sofia improved. I am used to hearing Sofia snoring so loudly. Now I have to go into her room and see if she is still breathing because she is so quiet. Before she had puffy eyes, and when you touched her chest it felt like a frog was in there. Now everything is clear. She was so happy with the product she contacted Mark Compston, owner of Marks Floors. She called unsolicited to tell me about her experience, he said. You dont often get calls like that.Beyond Air.os hypoallergenic features Rogers said she has been incredibly impressed with its stain and soil protection properties. If you spill something on it, it seems to evaporate; its wonderful, she said. I dropped Kool-Aid on it. I was like, Oh my goodness, but it cleaned up right away. I take a little soap and water and cleaned it up like I was cleaning a hard surface floor.Rogers praised Marks Floors staff and Compston for their efforts and compassion. To them its not about selling floors; its about caring for the life of their customer. I cant thank him enough because my baby girl can breathe and is happy and is rolling around, and I dont have a worry. The way they treated me was so amazing. Mark was so personable and friendly and kind. He mirrors the [second commandment] Love thy neighbor as thyself.CLOCKWISE: Mark Compston speaks with Michelle Rogers in his showroom. Shortly after a doctor recommended a more hypoallergenic environment for her daughter, Mark recommended Air.o.; Sofias severe allergies were one reason Michelle wanted Air.o installed in her home; by day, Rogers is a police officer in Clermont, FL.By Ken Ryan ADVERTORIAL *Must be 18 years of age or older.

AMY QUESINBERRYCOMMUNITY EDITORWhen the town of Oaklands new water-system improvements went into operation in 2014, there was no longer a need for the ABC Bus Company tank and pumping system to continue supplying the State Road 50 corridor and the subdivisions south of S.R. 50. The facility then was closed. Town staff has determined that because of the increase in demand the town can expect to experience when commercial development comes in, it is prudent to resur rect the facility. The system is little more than a decade old. In a memo to the commission, Public Works Director Mike Park er said: We anticipate not only reaching the 5,500-person population level within the next few years but will surely surpass it. It should be noted that the 2008 Water Master Plan that dictated the design of the 2014 improvements did not anticipate the increase in densities or changes in the rural areas in our western areas. The Town Commission, at its May 8 meeting, approved the ABC Booster Station SCADA Improvements project to Kat Construction and Materials Inc., which submitted a bid of $283,563.66. SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) is a system of software and hardware elements that control industrial processes. Kat Construction will build the piping, valves and telemetry equipment to serve the current and future needs of the towns drinking-water system. Principals of the company were formerly associated with Brandes Design-Build, who constructed the 2014 improvements without any problems, accidents or errors, Parker wrote in the memo.Town of Oakland to resurrect ABC water tank IN OTHER NEWS The Town Commission approved, under the consent agenda, an amended cost request for two modular classrooms at Oakland Avenue Charter School. The commission previously approved site work in the amount of $50,000 and monthly rental costs of $3,000 but subsequently has learned that additional electrical service is required from Duke Energy. This will cost about $86,000 more. Elected ocials adopted park hours at its three parks and pier: Speer and Vander Ley parks and the Jake Voss Pier will be available to the public from sunrise to sunset; and Pollard Park, formerly known as West Side Park, is open from sunrise to 10 p.m. because the basketball court has timed lights. About $900 will be spent on signage at these locations.

The event takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. at The Grove shopping center at 4750-4757 The Grove Drive in Windermere. Guests are encour aged to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the event. James Songster of Magic and Mayhem will be performing at the event. An award-winning magician, Songster, 52, has been inciting laughter and wonder with his performances for about 25 years around Orlando, throughout Flor ida and other locations. I moved to Orlando to be a magician, Songster said. I got here very late in 1991 and started performing in 1992 not know ing how it would develop or what it would turn into. Here I am all these years later having the time of my life. When Songster first came to the area, he only expected to stay for a few years. He ended up staying longer because the type of magic he performs matches well with Orlandos tourism market. What was really a turning point for me was the type of people that come to Orlando for vacations specifically families because Im very in tune with performing for family audiences, Songster said. Songster said he always has had passion for theater and took up magic as a theatrical hobby when he was a child. My very first magic trick I remember going to the magic shop at Disneyland in California ... and the demonstrator behind the counter brought out this little stack of nickels, Songerster said. He showed me this little stack of four nickels piled on top of each other and he took what looked almost like a bottle cap it was a brass cap that just fit over the stack of four nickels. He would put the cap on top of the four nickels and he would tap it and turned them into dimes. After graduating high school, Songster joined the U.S. Navy. While serving, he inadvertently honed his craft performing shows for service members and families. The Navy is probably why I became a magician as opposed to any other art form, Songster said. Long before I got out of the Navy, I was performing magic simply as a theatrical exercise and a way for me to feed my desire to perform. By the time Id come out of the Navy, I had accidentally become a magician. Songster will not be gracing the Groove at The Grove stage alone. His furry friend, ChaChing the rabbit, will joining him.

weather concerns had altered the schedule for the state championships this week. During the dramatic regional final that punched the Warriors ticket to Vero Beach, West Orange ace Landry Newgent and Spruce Creek pitcher Tiana Hernandez dueled through seven scoreless innings. It wasnt until the top of the eighth that the Warriors pushed across three runs with the first coming by way of a oneout, bases-loaded walk of Lexi Mosur. Brenna Wise followed that by driving in Lexie Blair on a sacrifice fly to center field that made it 2-0 in favor of the Warriors. Helping to ice the victory was an RBI-single from Alli Sartini that drove in Bryce Adkinson.

It feels great everything about this is great, Sapp, a standout defensive lineman for the Lions, said with a smile. Were all excited. Foundation Academys football program, a longtime tenant of Winter Gardens Walker Field, had just played its blue-andwhite spring scrimmage on its new, on-campus field. Although there is still plenty of work to be done on the facility including permanent bleachers, the concession stand and bathrooms the afternoon scrimmage, which lasted about 90 minutes, was a milestone for a program that is excited to play actual home games this fall. The field is in great condition it should be a great venue for us, Lions head coach Brad Lord said. Walker Field has been good for us, but I know our kids are excited to finally play home games. The milestone is significant for After spending more than three decades at her prior school in the Panhandle, packing up and moving to Central Florida was no small decision for Lisa Eaves, the new athletic director for Foundation Academy. Luckily, Eaves said, there were enough indications from on high that the Winter Garden campus was where she is supposed to be.Steven RyzewskiThe Foundation Academy football program enjoyed playing its blue-and-white scrimmage on its new, on-campus eld May 11.

18 WEST ORANGE TIMES & OBSERVER | THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2018 The Lord just kind of answered the (questions I had) and I had a peace about it, Eaves said. I just know (Foundation Academy) is where Im supposed to be. Eaves replaces outgoing Athletic Director David Baginski, who had been in the role since 2010, and she already has begun working for the school on a part-time basis. Her full-time start date is June 1. She joins an athletics program at Foundation that is in a growth mode. As athletic director at the Rocky Bayou Christian School in Niceville for the past eight years, Eaves oversaw the addition of nine middle-school sports and 13 high-school sports. Its exciting to me, because thats what I did (at Rocky Bay ou), Eaves said. Ive learned a lot here, and so I think Im prepared to do it in a way thats going to be healthy at Foundation. Foundation Academy President David Buckles, who also expressed gratitude for the work Baginski had done while on campus, said Eaves stood out during the schools search because of her experience and, particularly, her success grow ing female sports programs. Lisa came on our radar with a very strong sports program at her school, and a strong female sports program, and thats an area where we want to grow, Buckles said. Eaves prior experience also includes serving as the president of the Panhandle Christian Conference and on the FHSAAs Athletic Directors Advisory Committee. She has a bachelors degree from Southeastern Bible College and a masters degree from Luther Rice University. Already, Eaves has collaborated with school officials to hire a new boys soccer coach Josh Mansingh, formerly an assistant coach with the team and she is working to fill the Lions opening for a cheerleading coach, also. One big change for her will be that, after more than three decades of coaching volleyball, basketball and softball, she will be focused solely on the administrative side of things. Thats going to be a little weird for me, Eaves said. But I get to coach coaches, and Im looking forward to being fulltime in that role and serving the coaches. a campus community that has invested significantly in and exercised patience for the schools new athletic complex on its South Campus. Hurricane Irma thwarted earlier hopes that games might have been played on it during the fall of last school year, and when the field neared completion at the beginning of 2018, school officials opted not to play any soccer games there in favor of giving the sod more time to firmly settle. As evidenced by players ability to plant and change direction during the scrimmage, the sod has settled in nicely. And although the facility has not been fully completed, Lord said he already can envision what home games on a Friday night will mean for the campus community. You go to different schools, and their sports complex is sort of the heartbeat of the school, Lord said. Its where the kids work out, where they hang out, where they make friends, build relationships with coaches and get better. Thats what our vision is here and weve been blessed here at Foundation. There is still plenty of time for progress to continue on the new facility before the Lions take the field for an official game, too. Foundation Academy President David Buckles said the school has ordered the first phase of its bleachers for the inaugural season. It will have bleachers in place to seat 300, with ensuing phases planned that will increase that capacity over time. Foundation Academy will play its annual spring game at Lake Highland Prep in downtown Orlando May 17 and open the fall season with a kickoff classic game at Orlando Christian Prep Aug. 17 and a road game in Week One at Cambridge Christian Aug. 24. As is currently scheduled, the official debut of the new field will take place Aug. 31, when Foundation Academy hosts Kingdom Prep.RENOVATED WEIGHT ROOM A PLUS FOR LIONSThe scrimmage debut of the Lions new football field is not the only exciting facility-related news at Foundation Academy. The school is upgrading its playground at its North Campus with artificial turf and new equipment, and more perti nent to the athletics program, the existing weight room at the schools South Campus has received a significant facelift. Located within the Leiferman Family Gymnasium, the weight room has been renamed the Lumpkins Family Strength and Conditioning Center to recognize the generosity of the Chip and Luanne Lumpkins, who made the donation. The renovation included new equipment and aesthetic branding elements, and already it has been a big hit. They redid it, and the kids are excited about it, Foundation Academy football coach Brad Lord said. We got two new (weight) racks, so well get done quicker than we have been its beautiful. Buckles said this was not the first generous donation by the Lumpkins family, which also has donated money for projects such as providing Chromebook laptops for the schools teachers. What they see is the possibilities of Foundation Academy, Buckles said. This is a family that believes in the vision of Foundation Academy athletically and academically.

WEST ORANGE TIMES & OBSERVER | THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2018 19 which she did with authority finishing a complete-game, eight-inning outing that saw the Hawks tally just four hits. (Newgent) seemed to really have the hitters number, West Orange coach Kelsey LaNeave said. Our thought (during the playoffs) has been that if were going lose a ball game, were going to lose it with our No. 1 pitcher on the mound. An inning before Newgent closed the door on Spruce Creek, the Hawks (19-11) nearly defeated the Warriors in walk-off fashion if not for the arm of left-fielder Cerynn Siemer. When Spruce Creeks Mack enzie Childs doubled to left, it looked as though it might bring in Anna Carter. Instead, Siemer made a throw to catcher Julia Sniffen that saved the Warriors season and set the stage for a dramatic eighth inning that booked her and her teammates a trip to Vero Beach. The victory is the 11th consecutive win for West Orange, an exclamation point on a hot streak that began in early April starting with a 12-2 win over Wekiva April 5. Before that, the Warriors had been 12-7 with an uncharacteristic handful of district losses to their credit. After graduating several key contributors from the teams that won back-to-back state championships in 2016 and 2017, West Orange had several new faces in new roles, and the coaching staff had done some experimenting early in the season with lineups and roles. We were throwing people in and giving them opportunities to see how it was all going to shake out, Warriors coach Todd LaNeave said. It wasnt until three weeks ago, maybe a month ago, that things started to settle in. In years past, we would have a better idea of who the key play ers would be. This year, we didnt really know. We knew a handful, but the rest was undetermined. Added to the on-the-field adversity West Orange was facing was some adversity off of it, too. In mid-March, head coach Todd LaNeave suffered a heart attack and was sidelined for sev eral weeks while he recovered. In the interim, Kelsey LaNeave assumed the role of head coach. Todd LaNeave has gradually returned to the dugout, and now the father-daughter coaching combo will game plan for the Wolves this weekend. And where it was once unclear whether West Orange would even make it out of its district, any thing seems possible as the War riors are once again one of just four teams left in the state in their classification. The girls are really confident, Kelsey LaNeave said. Its been a season of battling, and weve had to come from behind quite a bit those (tense) situations arent really scaring us much, anymore.SoftballFROM PAGE 17 Proudly Sponsors... 274006 If you would like your pet to be considered for the Pet of the Week... email your furry friends photo to: Contests@OrangeObserver.com PETOF THE WEEK Farm life is the best!!!
