Hassan and McGee accused Singh of mistreating female employees, altering financial audit and travel documents, authorizing improper expenditures and awarding contracts in return for campaign contributions, according to the review. McGee, who was hired in January 2015 and served as Singhs communications director, and Hassan, who was hired in October 2014 as Singhs finance director, together sent an email to Singh June 22, 2017 detailing their complaints, the report stated. According to an official statement by the OCPA office, both employees were placed on paid leave on June 26, 2017, and then put on unpaid leave May 11. The review, performed by retired Judge Belvin Perry, took 10 months to complete because of the scope of allegations, coordination of witness interviews, document examinations and scheduling demands. A thorough, external investigation into the allegations was per formed by an independent, third party, OCPA officials said in an statement relayed by public relations firm Hill+Knowlton Strategies, which is working for OCPA on a temporary basis. Perry carefully reviewed the facts, examined the evidence and interviewed OCPAs Rick Singh, numerous OCPA employees and vendors under oath. He also interviewed the two complainants, who requested their statements not be under oath. In addition to interviewing McGee and Hassan, Perry inter viewed 11 others, nine of which were OCPA staff, according to the report. Perry emphasized that complainants McGee and Has san did not make their statements under oath a decision which played a role in determining his conclusions, he said in the report. According to the report, five types of allegations were made against Singh, and the allegations regarding document falsification and the creation of a hostile work environment were found to be unsubstantiated by the testi monies provided by Singhs other employees and by the findings of audits conducted by the Office of the County Comptroller. Other allegations, Perry asserts, could not be substantiated. It is this writers opinion that a number of the allegations were based upon the fact that Ms. McGee and Ms. Hassan had a very different view of what the best practices, policies and procedures of the OCPA should have been, Perry wrote. While the policies, practices and procedures of any governmental office ... are gov erned by state and county laws and rules, a number of practices are left up to the discretion of the elected official. Multiple attempts to reach Jill Schwartz, a Winter Park lawyer representing McGee and Hassan, were unsuccessful. five years ago, died early Thursday morning, May 24, from injuries he sustained in an attack in his back yard. Milfred wasnt an ordinary rooster, and he was more than just a pet to the Jacobsons. He was a member of their family. Maureen Jacobson and many in the Oakland community are mourning the death of Milfred, the beloved rooster that spurred a childrens book, Milfred Made the News, and a proclamation declaring April 14, 2015, Milfred the Rooster Day in the town of Oakland. He was the equivalent of 26 in human years. As news spread on Facebook, where Milfred has his own page, folks began reaching out to the Jacobsons with their condolences and their own stories about the popular rooster. Milfred became a household name in Oakland in 2013, when he went missing for a few days before showing up at Oakland Avenue Charter School, where Maureen was working. The story made the local news. This was the inspiration she had been seeking to write a childrens book. Milfred Makes the News chronicled the pets escapades. Once the book was published, the writer and her rooster were invited to many book signings. The book also was added to the Winter Garden and downtown Orlando branches of the Orange County Library System. Maureen received several awards for the book, has written a second one and is work ing on a third. When Elaine Morgan, a clerk at the Oakland Post Office, came across rooster stamps that looked exactly like Milfred, she ordered some for the downtown Oakland branch. Kids would ride down the street and down the bike trail, and it didnt matter how old they were, when they rode by our house they would cock-a-doodle-doo and want Milfred to cock-a-doodledoo back, Maureen said. In the last week, local parents have been sharing with Maureen photos of their families reading the book. Others said they read the book to their children and then told them the sad news.TOO MANY INJURIESMaureen was out of town when the attack happened, and Milfred refused to let Jeff near him, so the extent of the injuries was unknown. A few days later, Jeff noticed the rooster acting lethargic. He was able to wrap him in a towel and get him to a veterinarian, who discov ered a large gash on Milfreds back, a broken vertebrae and a punctured lung. He became septic because of the bacteria in his system. Jeff called Maureen via Facetime so Milfred could hear her voice. Im in this store Facetiming my rooster to get him alert, Maureen said. He perked up and bock bock bocked. The family was given medication for their pet, but when it became clear he wasnt going to recover, they mentally prepared to let him go. I took him around to say goodbye to all the chickens, Maureen said. He died at home, under a heat lamp, with Maureen by his side. I was with him when he was hatched and took his first breath, and I was with him when he took his last breath, she said. The Jacobsons, while distraught over the death of their pet rooster, are proud of him for his final act of bravery. The dog also attacked one of our hens, and Milfred made so much noise, clucking so loud, that Jeff heard him and came out and we were able to save the hen, Maureen said. Milfred, even in his wounded state, was still able to save one of his best friends.MILDRED BECOMES MILFREDAfter Maureens husband gave her a chicken coop for Christmas in 2012, she did some research to find chickens that would produce the best eggs. She decided on the Americana chicken and ordered an egg from an acquaintance in California who raises organic, freerange chickens. He made the trek (as an) egg, and we put him in the incubator, Maureen said. We named him Mildred but changed it to Milfred after he cock-a-doodle-dooed. Milfred was quite the character, the cock of the walk, the leader of the henyard. Maureen said he ran toward her when she called his name and did a little chicken dance for her. His favorite snacks were grapes, blueberries, apples, watermelon, French fries and mashed potatoes. She has so many stories of her family pet. If I sneezed, he would make a noise and say bless you; he was amazing, Maureen said. One year we were cooking Thanksgiv ing dinner, and I have a picture of him coming in and checking it out. Bock bock bock bock. He would love to come in and sit in the bathroom and look at himself in the mirror and talk to himself.PRESERVING MILFREDMaureen has contacted Master Taxidermy Studio, in Ocoee, about preserving the rooster. I always said when the day came that Milfred died I wanted to preserve his memory in the best way possible and that was to keep him physically with me somehow, she said. She contacted Master Taxidermy because it was a 43-yearold family-owned business. It is operated by Derrick Powell, but his grandfather, company founder John Bartoletti, has agreed to come out of retirement to handle Milfred. The company has a policy to not taxidermy family pets but is making an exception because the rooster is a local celebrity. Im going to keep him in the house, Maureen said. I just loved him so much, and he was my pet. When people have a prized animal that they got when they were hunting, well he was my prized animal that I loved as a pet. When the day comes to do more stories, I can look at it and get inspiration instead of looking at a picture, she said. Maureen has set up a gofundme page to help raise $550 for the taxidermy. Donations can be made at GoFundMe.com/MFRD52418. Ill miss him welcoming me when I came home and him running into my house whenever his grandson Pancake would chase him, Maureen said. He was such an incredible rooster. I dont know how our backyard will ever be the same without him in it.

Wytiaz, CFP Independent Branch Leader and Financial Consultant 276371 GABBY BAQUERONEWS EDITOR Two parcels of land in Horizon West spanning 108 acres might soon host about 500 homes. A project representative explained the plans during a community meeting held Tuesday, May 24, at Independence Elementary School. The 108-acre property only 96 of which are developable is cur rently vacant. The project, known as Lake Austin, is located west of Avalon Road, south of Grove Blossom Way and east of Lake County. According to property records from the Orange County Property Appraisers website, the multiparcel property was purchased for $6.25 million by BB Groves LLC, in December 2017. The property is surrounded by several resorts, including The Grove Resort & Spa Orlando to the east and Summer Bay Orlando Resort to the south. Kathryn Hattaway, a project representative from Poulos & Bennett LLC, explained the concept of the planned future project, which is currently in the initial stages of the countys development approv al process. This does have a PD future land use, and we are requesting to continue the (Planned Development) future land use, and were actually proposing a specific number of units on this property, she said. So in our application, we are ask ing for a maximum of 500 dwelling units that can be used for any combination of short-term rentals, age-restricted (housing) or market-rate (housing). The applicant also has agreed to make all market-rate housing on the property comply with the Horizon West architectural design standards to be consistent with surrounding areas, Hattaway said. Access points to the property would be from Grove Blossom Way and an access point to the north. The applicant has not proposed any new access points along Avalon Road, Hattaway said. However, plans may change as the project progresses. At this point, we dont know, as were still early in the development process, Hattaway said, referring to the projects planned housing ratio. So we cant tell you today, how many short-term rentals, how many owner-occupied or how many age-restricted units there will be. That will be further defined in the PD zoning document, which will be submitted soon after the transmittal public hearings. The process will require the project to be reviewed and voted on by both the Orange County Planning and Zoning Commission and Board of County Commissioners. Developer introduces plans for 500 homesOrange County invited a representative to explain the project at a community meeting held Tuesday, May 24, at Independence Elementary.

It is unclear whether the current building will be torn down or remodeled or whether the location will have a drive-thru.AMY QUESINBERRYCOMMUNITY EDITORDespite missing school for months at a time because of lymphoma, Lincoln Forges maintained his grades and a grade-point average of 3.3 and walked alongside his classmates in Ocoee High Schools graduation ceremony Wednesday, May 30. Many of his supporters family, friends and teachers were there to cheer for him as he crossed the stage at the University of Central Florida. Forges has been juggling school work and cancer treatments since being diagnosed with post-transplant lymphoproliferative disor der in December 2016 as a result of a heart transplant when he was 14 months old. The cancer was gone last May, but by December, it was back. This time, it was much worse because this time it had spread to my bone marrow and over the majority of my body, Forges said. I went through chemotherapy again, but this time I received much heavier doses of chemo and more frequently than last time causing me to lose all of my hair. (Im) thankful I managed to finish my treatment in March of this year and have been in remission since, he said. He admitted he didnt think he would be able to participate in his graduation ceremony because he had been so sick during the treatment. Forges has been under the care of hematologist Dr. Alejandro Levy and his team at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. He said the recurrence of cancer has not limited him; in fact, he has used it as fuel to accomplish his goals. In addition to being a mem ber of the Student Government Association and the National Honor Society, Forges played on the Ocoee Knight baseball team. I dont want anybody to ever feel bad for me or anything; Im just another teenager like every body else, he said. Thats how I want people to see me. He credits his teachers, adviser and coaches for their support and for making sure he stayed on task with his assignments. They were very instrumental in me being successful in school and baseball, he said. Forges was able to complete most of his work through Florida Virtual School, and he picked up work packets at school for his other classes. He has a close circle of friends who he said have been amazing through it all: Caleb Andreaus, Ryan Lattner, Matthew Nielsen, Morgan Townsend, Lauren Townsend, Hailey Poorman, Joy Harris and Madison Snavely, as well as the entire Ocoee baseball family and the OHS student body. Forges is the son of Lou and Patricia Forges, of Apopka. His next step is to attend UCF and major in sports marketing in hopes of one day owning his own sports agency.Despite cancer, grad turns tassel INSIDEFor more photos from Ocoee High Schools graduation, see page 8.

It was his first year in college. Today, his memory lives on with the Band of Brothers Memorial Classic basketball game. The Seventh Annual B.O.B. Memorial Classic was held Saturday, June 2, at Ocoee High School. Basketball fans packed the Ocoee High gym as Deronvils friends and former teammates faced off for a friendly ball game in his honor. All proceeds of the game go toward the Bob Deronvil Scholarship Fund, which is awarded to one male and one female athlete each year, said Amilcar Matus, who was best friends with Deronvil.

He specializes in painting, drawing and freehand creating iconic characters of out perler beads. One of the biggest inspirations behind his artwork is his love for Japanese anime and manga, which are Japanese comic books. My goal is to have my own manga, Swaby said, adding that he already has two mangas in the works. I love anime. I love to draw. If I had a choice, Id do it 24/7.EARLY HARDSHIPSSwaby has been drawing since he was a child. By age 10, he picked up a paintbrush and became a student of Bob Ross thanks to the magic of television. He discov ered anime when he was 12 and has loved it ever since. He has lived his whole life breaking down the walls of what he calls the black box. He describes that box as the racial stereotypes commonly associated with young black men. Throughout his life, that box has isolated him from the credit that hes deserved for his art with one experience occurring at an early age. My mother tried to get me into art schools, but the art teachers told her no, Swaby said. They thought that I didnt paint (my work). They thought my mother painted them. Although he wasnt accepted into an art school, Swaby kept creating art. I aint black enough for the black artist, and I aint white enough for the white artist, but Im cool enough for my anime crowd, he said. They dont care about color. They just want to see cool art, and thats all that matters for me. Despite the discrimination, Swaby smiles and laughs as he looks back at it because he sees it all as part of Gods plan for him. Its so funny, Swaby said. It happens a lot, you know, but I think thats the beauty of it. Thats why God designed me as an artist, because it shows people you never know whos an artist. Swaby hit a major setback in his early 20s when he injured his right hand. The damage was per manent. I cant close my right hand, Swaby said. I got my hand smashed in a door. But not even that injury stopped him from making art. If anything, it made him a stronger artist as he trained himself to use his left hand while simultaneously rehabilitating his right. I had to sneak my hand out of the cast and rehabilitate my hand to draw, Swaby said. I started drawing with my left (hand) because I couldnt make a fist (with my right) for a little while. He now uses both of his hands to create his art.BRUSH WITH HOMELESSNESSIn addition to art and anime, Swaby is a passionate inline skater. At age 27, he was a sponsored skater who also managed a skate shop in The Bronx. The shop did not get a lot of business, but his passion for skating kept him there. The skate shop was failing, Swaby said. It wasnt mak ing money. But I kept work ing there to the point where they werent even paying me, and I lost my apartment. I was homeless for two years. He hid the fact that he was homeless. He was too embar rassed to tell anyone including his boss and mother. He used to sleep under a stairway of a building he grew up in, or he would stay with friends. At one point, Swaby kept his art at a friends home, but that friend tried to steal his art. To get his art back, Swaby had to be sneaky. I had to fake like I was hanging out with him, Swaby said. I went in there and I faked like I was throwing out his garbage for him. ... I grabbed all my artwork and I grabbed his garbage and I just ran. Eventually, his mother found out about his living conditions and stepped in to help. Thats when Swaby moved to Florida for a fresh start.NEW BEGINNINGSSwaby came to Winter Garden after he got accepted into Full Sail University. However, he did not attend because he could not afford the $80,000 tuition. Instead, he got a job at the 7-Eleven at the corner of West Colonial and Winter Garden-Vineland Road. While working at the 7-Eleven, he started creating his perler bead pieces. He took about 150 perler bead pieces to his first Megacon Convention in Orlando in 2015, and they sold out. That convention made him fall in love with the area, and he decided to stay in town. Since then, he has worked as a scenic and commercial painter at Walt Disney World for more than two years. Today, he can be found at Lucky Straws Boba Tea of Winter Garden working on his art. On Saturdays, he teaches a paint class at Paint Sip and Swirl in Orlando Fashion Square Mall. Im sitting here as living proof of (you should) never quit, Swaby said.

Mindy Hungerford started the event last year as a fundraiser to raise money for a mission trip to Uganda with Watoto Ministries. The ministry provides aid to abandoned women and children in Uganda. I knew I had to go, Hunger ford said. I just felt called to go and work in their orphanage. Hungerford added that Watoto Ministries has hired her to handle its social media accounts and now funds her mission trip. Funding from this years prom and future ones will go toward paying for life-saving supplies. People in the community who came (to the prom) last year had such a great time, Hungerford said.

Every summer, more than 200 student-athletes from college baseball programs near and far converge on Central Florida to play in the Florida Collegiate Summer League. The ballplayers of the Florida League arrive with myriad goals performing in front of pro scouts; improving their skills for when they return to their program in the fall; and auditioning for a chance to transfer to a different program. In short, each player arrives with the hopes of working hard for a brighter future. And in that, they are not alone. Joining the more than 200 baseball players each summer are about 30 student interns. Those students perform roles such as broadcast, journalism, game operations and social media and flock to the Florida Leagues internship program for real-world experience in the sports business industry.

The Squeeze have welcomed in more players whodo not have local ties and will be staying with host families. This is the first year where I dont know a lot of the kids, Welsh said. The first two weeks is a feeling-out process, seeing what they can and cant do. Accordingly, Welsh a pitching coach during the collegiate regular season at Lake-Sumter has rolled out a new platoon format for his position players to make sure each position player sees playing time in each game. The 13 position players, Ill do a five (inning) and four (inning split), and Ill rotate that, Welsh said. I like when a kid knows that hes going to come to the ballpark and ... hes going to be in the game. In addition to getting each player some action and keeping with the spirit of the Flor ida Collegiate Summer League helping players improve for their college programs and get them exposure in front of scouts the format has allowed Welsh to evaluate nearly every player in a short amount of time. These first two games everybody has played, Welsh said. Ive seen every arm except for the kids (who) arent here. This is the fifth season for the Squeeze in the FCSL, and Welsh and General Manager Adam Bates are hopeful that in addition to providing a good experience for the players they have brought to Winter Garden, the ballclub can make a little noise in the postseason and per haps make it to the championship game for the first time. Overall, we have enough pieces to have another solid year and hopefully make a run at the end, Welsh said. Steven RyzewskiOlympia alum Jordan Morrow rounded second base June 2.

The interns for the Squeeze this summer include Sam Milliren, Sara Ramick, Erik Rivera, Connor Scheitzach and Casey Wright. Wright, the teams broadcast intern, is in his second go-round with the Winter Garden franchise and his third, overall, with the Florida League. An aspiring play-by-play broadcaster who will be a senior at Rollins College in the fall, Wright said the league has been valuable because of the handson experience it offers. Its tough to find a broadcasting position for a current college student that can broadcast 20-plus games a year doing play-by-play, Wright said. The Florida League, in gener al, has really made me feel welcome the highlight of my last few summers has been doing this internship. The internship, itself, is no walk in the park, either. Teams in the Florida League play five or six games per week throughout June and July each summer, and games often are delayed for rain storms. Its a grind, Bates said. In a way, the demanding nature of this particular internship helps students determine whether the industry is really for them. It teaches me what my life will consist of in the future, Wright said. Wright broadcasts each game over the web, and although the audiences usually are small, he said he still feels an obligation to do good work the most common listeners are parents of the players playing. Other roles, including game operations, mean interacting with fans, players and coaches frequently, meaning each intern gets a crash course in communication. Its really helped myself become better as a communicator and better at being a person, first, and then a play-by-play broadcaster, Wright said. Florida League players who are from outside the Central Florida area usually will stay with host families during the summer season, and interns who do not have local ties do the same. Milliren, for instance, has been staying with a woman in Winter Garden since midMay and said having a host has helped her feel more comfortable in a new setting. Its nice; I havent really gotten homesick she takes care of me really well, Milliren said. At the end of the night, we sit and watch TV together. Interns get perks, such as meeting personnel for the Orlando Magic and other experiences, in addition to the dayto-day operations of each franchise. For the Winter Garden franchise, Bates has impressed upon each group of interns that they are a part of the Squeezes story. Theyre part of the family, Bates said. Every year, we have an intern (come) back, and its kind of neat. What was it like playing in the championship game? I was excited. I felt good. My strategy was to have confidence. I was nervous, and there were a lot of people. Your brother Max relieved you and finished the game. Why is he a good pitcher? He is accurate and he hits his spots. He has a circle-change. How long have you been playing baseball and why do you like it? Since I was 3. Its fun, and I get to hang out with my friends. Which part of the game do you enjoy the most pitching, fielding or hitting? Hitting you can hit doubles, triples and home runs. All of that stuff. SPORTS SPOTLIGHTCharlie Eidelman pitched 4 1/3 scoreless innings for the Twins in the Winter Garden Little League Majors Championship May 25, helping his team beat the Astros 9-0. Charlie was relieved by his brother, Max Eidelman, who completed the shutout.SPONSORED BY MARKS FLOORSCharlie Eidelman Who is your favorite baseball player? Kris Bryant.

The Panthers took on Timber Creek, a peer from Orange Countys Metro Conference, the morning of June 2 in the FHSAA Class 9A State Semifinals at Hammond Stadium, and fell 5-1 to the defending champions in 9A. Dr. Phillips (18-14) scored first but could not hold that lead. The Wolves (22-7) scored five unanswered runs to advance to the state final, where they were defeated by the Jupiter High War riors later that day. Weve got a gritty group, and the ball just didnt bounce our way, head coach Mike Bradley said. We competed all game, at the mound and at the plate. ... Its been a great run. The Panthers got on the board in the bottom of the fourth inning after Brandon Fields and August Haymaker earned walks to lead off the at-bat. When a passed ball advanced the runners to second and third with no outs, Dr. Phillips seemed primed for a big inning. seemingly every time he needed one. The game was originally scheduled to have taken place a day earlier, at 4 p.m. June 1. At about 3 p.m. that day, the preceding game a Class 8A State Semifinal between St. Thomas Aquinas and George Jenkins entered a weather delay that lasted about five hours. As a result, the game between the Panthers and Wolves was rescheduled to 9 a.m. June 2. It took a toll, but at the same time, these guys are conditioned for that, Bradley said of waiting. The guys all play travel baseball, so they've gotten up and played at eight in the morning. The defeat ends a season of big ups and downs for Dr. Phillips. After starting the campaign with five consecutive wins, the Panthers lost 10 of 14 games including five losses by one run. The team seemed to gel just in time for the district tournament, which it entered as the No. 5 seed. Wins in the play-in round and the district semifinal that week in early May set the stage for a run through the regional playoffs. We went into the playoffs, and people doubted us but we didnt doubt each other, senior August Haymaker said. We were ready to go. Although the Panthers will lament some missed opportunities during their trip to the Final Four, the team and its coaches have the distinction of returning the program to a state semifinal for the first time since 1996. Im just extremely proud of all of my guys, Bradley said. They competed to the very end. Then, Will Sullivan grounded out to the first baseman, who stepped on the bag for the force out and then fired over to second base where Haymaker who had been caught between bases was tagged out. Fields scored during the exchange, but Bradley said afterward trading two outs for one run was less than ideal. We were happy to get on the board but just knew it wasnt going to be enough, Bradley said. It was only a half-inning later, in the top of the fifth, when the Wolves bats came alive. Timber Creek pushed across two runs in the fifth inning and three more in the sixth inning, creating a hole that was too deep for the Panthers. Panthers starting pitcher Cort Roedig was pulled after allowing two runs, three hits and striking out four in 4 2/3 innings of work. Logan Bryan pitched the final out of the fifth inning and the entire sixth, surrendering three runs (two earned) on three hits and an error, and Mitchell Stockwell pitched the seventh inning. Cort was battling his tail off all game he threw a heck of a game, Bradley said. At the plate, the frustration mounted for Dr. Phillips over the innings, as Panther hitters could not find the holes while trying to solve Timber Creek starting pitcher Bret Neilan. Neilan, who pitched a complete game for the win, struck out just six Panthers, but got ground balls and pop outs Steven RyzewskiDr. Phillips junior Brandon Fields slid safely into home for Dr. Phillips only run of the game.

And in his 24 years of ownership, he certainly made it his own. Listed for sale only three weeks ago, Shaqs home located at 9927 Giffin Court has 12 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and four partial bathrooms. The custom estate is situated in such a way that nearly every room in the house has a view of the Butler Chain of Lakes. In the foyer, a double-curved staircase leads to the second floor and guides guests to the great room or living room. The living room is over 1,100 square feet, and its two stories, so its massive, said Danial Natoli, the representing agent with Premier Sothebys International Realty. You can have events in there and almost do anything, but its still comfortable. Theres only a few houses I know in Orlando that have a grand room like that. The great room also has built-in sofas, a two-story marble fireplace, wood beams with large corbels and a glass wall that provides a view of Lake Butler. Large, open doorways, warm color tones and hand-crafted wood paneling and moldings throughout add detail to the house. There are also three fireplaces, two-story ceilings, a media room, a walk-in humidor, wine-and-cigar cellar, custom chefs kitchen, ancient Egypt-themed room with a saltwater fish tank and more. The 17-car garage boasts show room details, perfect for the avid car collector. And it wouldnt be Shaqs house without a 6,000-squarefoot indoor basketball court, adorned with the Superman logo. Outside, there is a 95-foot-wide, 15-foot-deep pool with a rock-wall waterfall, summer kitchen, cov ered cabana and 10-foot privacy wall. The pool, the outside (in general) is tremendous, Natoli said. You feel like youre at a resort, and the pool and spa together is about 95 feet long. (Shaq) has a beautiful, large, rock-waterfall feature that you can walk up and jump off of, and it really feels like a private resort back there. Other highlights include gated entry, full-house Crestron technology and a second garage that contains a dance studio, recording studio and more car space.SUPERMANS TOUCHAlthough not all of Shaqs Super man features will remain after the home is sold, there are some details engrained with the basketball stars affinity for the superhero. Natoli said there are some Super man details inside the iron railings and steel appliances, as well as logos etched into some mirrors and glass doors. Other things, such as Superman-themed light fixtures and removable logos and accents, will move along with Shaq. In 2003, Shaqs mansion was featured on the show MTV Cribs, where he showed off his master retreat. This is the wing dedicated entirely to the master suite, which includes a large walk-in closet, 900-square-foot bedroom and an oversized, Superman-themed bed. Additionally, a full-size Superman statue keeps watch on the horizon from the private dock. This is the only location in Isleworth thats on the most private street in a linear three acres, Natoli said. The majority of the house is nice and long. Just about every room has beautiful views of the lake and sunsets. You just cant buy that in Orlando anymore. Natoli added there has been interest from potential buyers spanning from Pennsylvania and Massachusetts to Miami and even China. I think (this house) is going to be really for some type of retired athlete or CEO/business owner who could live there but also use it as a retreat, Natoli said. I could go on and on, theres so many features to this (house). AMENITIES Balcony Built-in vacuum Dock Fireplace in master bedroom Gated community Indoor basketball court Live water Media room/home theater Outdoor pool Pool Sprinkler system Three replaces Walk-in closets Wet barOWN SHAQS HOMEThe basketball stars massive estate carries a $28 million price tag.
