As currently written, the proposed tentative capital budget totals $1.04 billion a slight decrease from last years $1.07 billion. This years capital budget appropriates 10.5% for additional schools. Of the six upcoming schools receiving funding this year, one is a middle school, three are elementary schools and two are high schools. One of the projects, Site 113H-W-4, is a high school that will be in Village F of Horizon West. Because of the areas rapid growth, the Facilities Department requested the Orange County School Board to accelerate the construction timeline for Site 113 during a School Board work ses sion held June 7. The school now will be opening in fall 2022 the same time as the planned relief school for Dr. Phillips and Freedom high schools. We were already planning on opening a high school to relieve Dr. Phillips and Freedom high schools, Site 80 but Horizon West has been growing so fast that we have now, as of last week, gone to the (School) Board ask ing them to budget for a second high school opening that year, said Lauren Roth, an OCPS media spokeswoman. Originally, (the school) was in the 10-year (capital improvement) plan, but now, its been moved to the five-year (capital improvement) plan and a five-year shift is a big deal. The proposed tentative budget also plans to fund an expansion of the digital curriculum, replacement of older school buses and portables, comprehensive renovations to existing school sites, and the addition of sunshades for playgrounds and tot lots.

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Attorney Gen. Robert F. Kennedy both were assassinated, Americans still were being thrust into the Vietnam War, and two U.S. athletes took a political stand at the Summer Olympics. It also was the year the Class of 1968 graduated from Charles R. Drew High School. Their graduation theme was Bright Flame Burning, and these graduates were about to show just how brightly they would shine. Many of these students attended all 12 years of school at Drew High, the school for black children in Winter Garden, Oakland, Tildenville and Windermere from 1957 to 1969. The school was located on East Story Road, where Orange Technical College Westside Campus operates. More than 50 classmates received their Drew High diplomas from Principal Harry H. Morall during the graduation ceremony in the school auditorium June 3, 1968. Five honor students addressed their class. Addie Lofton Grier and her longtime friend and classmate Clara Sue McMillian Davis are serving on the committee that has planned the class 50-year reunion for Friday and Saturday, June 22 and 23. Davis wrote in a message to her classmates: Nestled away in our own little world, in a segregated neighborhood and a segregated school, we moved freely about the business of getting an education. Sheltered and protected by those who loved and believed in us. We had dreams, dreams of going on to college for some, dreams of getting married or getting a job right away and enjoying the freedom of being on our own. All we had ever known, from first grade through 12th grade, was Charles R. Drew. We were young, full of energy, eager to be free of our parents and ready to conquer the world. We left those hallowed grounds, fear less, bold and beaming with pride. So, where are they now? Grier and Davis provided updates on some of their classmates.ADDIE LOFTON GRIERAddie Lofton Grier was the class vice president and valedictorian. She graduated from Knoxville University, Tennessee, and has retired after 38 years with Orange County Public Schools, the last 20 as a counselor at Dr. Phillips High.

He has owned and operated Postells Mortuary LLC since 1991 and has been named Mortician of the Year. Postell is the son of Francine Postell.He and his wife, Beverly, have two daughters.THEIR MEMORIESI remember 1968 with mixed emotions. I was ex cited about going to college out of state and joining the worlds oldest black sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha. I was a debutante, president of the Charmettes and class valedictorian. All was right with the world. In April, when Martin Luther King was assassinated, our world shifted. Riots broke out, cities burned, and I was afraid. The day after graduation, Robert Kennedy was shot, and 24 hours later he was dead. I remember still being in bed when I heard the news and covering my head trying, at least temporarily, to shut out the world. But the world kept on turning, and so did we. Out into the world we went, hoping to make a good life for ourselves and nd our place in the world. ADDIE GRIEROne thing that has stayed with me throughout all these years is exercising my right to vote. That is very impor tant to me. Primary, special elections, national, no mat ter what; Im there. I encour age my family, neighbors and friends not to sleep on this right. Forefathers lost a lot of blood, sweat and tears to secure this right. ERNESTINE LOCKETTHaving attended a black high school, free from the world of prejudice or injustices of the day, allowed me to concentrate on my studies. It was like attending a private school with your peers and people who looked like you. It was just like a boarding school, except we got to go home each day. Our circle of inuences was impactful and memorable. We were surrounded by positive role models; many of them worked 24/7 and for minimal pay to elevate and motivate us toward being the best we could be. We were positive and optimistic.

WG _LateJune.indd 1 6/19/18 12:13 PM AMY QUESINBERRYCOMMUNITY EDITORLakeside Church started 10 years ago with a few families meeting in a home. It moved to larger locations as it grew, settling in a leased space at 100 Countyline Court. Membership has quadrupled, Pastor Jason Hitte said, so another move is in order. The church has requested a special exception from the Town of Oakland to build a house of wor ship on a nine-acre parcel at 16001 W. Colonial Drive. To comply with the Oaklands Gateway Corridor Overlay, Lakeside has agreed to designate two parcels on Colonial totaling 1.59 acres for commercial development. The main church building will be built on the north end of the property. The campus will include a 32,000-square-foot auditorium with seating for 1,000 plus an office and space for Lakeside Kids totaling 22,000 square feet in two stories. The towns Future Land Use Map provides for institutional uses, but a 2014 Opportunity Site Vision emphasizes commercial uses and economic development along the Colonial Drive corridor. Lakeside would enter into a PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) agreement for the two commercial parcels. This requires annual pay ments to the town in an amount equal to the portion of ad valorem taxes to which the city would otherwise be entitled to receive for property if taxable, according to the proposed ordinance. The Town Commission unanimously passed the first reading of the ordinance for the project at its June 12 meeting. Hitte said he discovered Oak land 20 years ago, when he had to obtain ministry credentials and never dreamed he would have the chance to form a ministry campus in the heart of the town. Lakeside has an architect on hold for the church project. IN OTHER NEWS The town of Oakland learned from Orange County Property Appraiser Rick Singh that the estimated 2018 tax able value for real and tangible personal property for the town is $269,008,552. The Oakland Town Commission approved an agreement with Duke Energy Florida, which states the company will pay about $223,000 owed to the town. Oakland ocials issued a proposed assessment of public service taxes for the reporting period of November 2014 through October 2017 based on errors in assigning customers to the cor rect local jurisdiction. These errors aected the amounts of franchise fees provided to the town. Mayor Kathy Stark said she would like to see this amount be placed in a reserve account.Lakeside Church looking to move to Colonial DriveThe church must obtain a special exception to put a church on the main highway in Oakland.

Before you head outdoors this summer, be sure to protect your skin against damaging sun, which can lead to melanoma. Remember not all sunscreens are the same. Here are some tips to make sure you and your family can enjoy the outdoors while protecting yourself from the Florida sunshine: Look for broad spectrum protection. Sunscreens with this on the label protect against both UVA and UVB rays, which not only helps prevent sunburn but also skin cancers, wrinkles and premature aging. Use SPF 30 or higher. The higher the SPF number, the more protection you have from the sun. However, the higher you go, the out about 97 percent of rays while SPF 100 about 99 percent. Water resistant doesnt mean waterproof. No sunscreens are waterproof or sweat proof. Look for water resistant sunscreens and check the label for how long they Reapply at least every two hours. If youre swimming and sweating, you should reapply more often. Dont forget, when you towel yourself dry your sunscreen can rub off, so you should put more on. Use enough. Most adults need a full ounce of sunscreen to fully cover all exposed areas of skin. Thats cover the palm of your cupped hand. Check expiration dates. Sunscreen loses its effectiveness when it starts to separate, which happens two to three years after it was made. Throw out any products that are expired or have changed texture or appearance. Let it soak in. Allow 15 minutes for your skin to absorb the product before going outside. Dont forget your lips. Many people forget to protect the delicate skin on their lips when out in the sun. Be sure to apply sunscreen to your lips or use lip balm with SPF 30 protection. While sunscreen allows us to safely enjoy the outdoors more, you shouldnt rely on it alone. Its important to cover up with clothing that protects you from the sun including a hat with a wide brim and sunglasses that block UVA and UVB rays. Also, take a break from the sun and enjoy the shade when possible especially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. when the sun is directly overhead.

Now, just more than 20 years later, shes receiving her mortgage-payoff letter and the satisfaction of knowing she owns her own Winter Garden home. Its a good feeling, Reynolds said of paying off the mortgage. Ive done some good things in life, like my children. I went back to school and finished that. But, to have my own house. At 53 years old, to think I would ever own my own house, thats a big, big accomplishment. Two decades ago, Reynolds and her five daughters, ages 6 to 15, were living in a small, crowded house in Winter Garden she described as in poor condition. She applied for a Habitat house but never expected to be selected. After she was named a future homeowner, Reynolds, with the help of family and friends, had to contribute 300 hours of work in construction and site clean-up called sweat-equity hours. St. Lukes United Methodist Church, in Orlando, provided numerous volunteers. This house means so much to me (because) its not just a house that construction workers built, Reynolds said. I helped on the construction; I helped put up the drywall, I helped with putting my windows in. I did some painting, and I even went up on the roof to help. I actually built my own house, she said. It was in this four-bedroom, two-bath home that Reynolds raised her five girls. It was here they shared Bible studies and movie nights. And it is where Reynolds resides today with three of her five daughters and four grandchildren. Its been really good times here, she said. This house is like, you can move out of the house and you can live your life, but if you ever need to come back, the door is always open. Reynolds admits it wasnt always easy to make the monthly payments. She praised her mother, Odessa Reynolds, for coming through for her on more than one occasion. Until I got back on my feet, she would always help me, she said. She was my backbone. The homeowner is on solid ground, working at Pacific Uniform Service, in Orlando. She transferred her church member ship to St. Lukes after discover ing the kindness of the people. She earned a two-year associates degree in human services. Reynolds said she plans to get more involved in Habitat and help build homes in West Orange County. I have just been so blessed with getting a home, Reynolds said. And when they gave me the keys to the home, I was just so excited. I was like, I have a home now. And my kids have a home now. They have their own rooms and can play in their room. It can go from generation to generation, and thats a big accomplishment, she said. Im really, really full of joy. I still cannot believe it. Its like a dream. But its mine. Its a good feeling to own your own house. Nearly 30 families are repaying their Habitat mortgage, said Marilyn Hattaway, director of development for West Orange Habitat For Humanity. Jackies accomplishment is one were all proud of, Hattaway said. It sends a message of success to our volunteers and donors and, most of all, (those 30 families). And while they are repaying that no-interest mortgage, families have the benefit of more spendable income for insurance, transportation, food, education, child care and medical care, she said.

For a showing, callWayne SheltonCentury 21 Realtor407-484-0306 the local animal-rescue organizations also are full this year. According to Diane Summers, OCAS communications manager, animal shelters usually receive the highest volume of impounds from June to August because of the feline breeding season. In May alone, the shelter received 649 dogs and 1,137 cats. As Orange Countys only openadmission shelter, no animal in need is ever turned away, Summers said. As a result, we receive approximately 50 pets each day, but during our summer months that number rises and can some times surpass 100 impounds in a single day, the highest percentage of which will be kittens. At the moment, we have no vacant kennels in our general population area and as a result have determined that we are at capacity for the first time this year. According to the OCAS website, the Orange County shelter received a total of 17,387 cats and dogs in 2017 9,751 of which were cats. Of those animals, 8,412 were adopted, 1,332 were taken by local animal-rescue groups, and 1,591 were returned to their rightful owners. Other animals were either relocated, released as part of the OCAS Community Cats Initiative or escaped the shelter. Summers said there is no precise number for the shelters capacity and added OCAS determines capacity based on both kennel population and available space in the facility. (Capacity) will vary depending on each pets health and temperament, she said. There is not a set number that determines that the shelter is full. In our general population area, we have many kennels housing three large dogs, which becomes a safety risk for the visitors, staff and pets often leading to an increase in illness. Whenever the shelter reaches capacity, it reaches out to the community for help via social media and renews efforts to promote adoptions and have more residents become foster parents. Currently, the shelter has 225 foster homes and about 300 pets currently in foster care, Summers said. The shelters foster coordinator, Amy Sullivan, has a goal to achieve 1,000 foster parents, she said. Typically, about 100 animals are being cared for in foster homes during the shelters off-season and about 300 during its peak season. When reaching a critical volume, the shelter turns to the community for support, Summer said. A number of posts on social media have made clear the need for adopters and foster par ents. The shelter is also offering an adoption promotion that reduces dog and cat adoption fees to just $10 for the month of June, which includes the spay/neuter, initial vaccines and microchip identification.

Lakeshore Dr. Mamounas is one of 60 artists who has his work displayed as part of the Winter Garden Art Associations fourth annual Top Choice Art Show at SoBo Art Gallery, 127 S. Boyd St. The show launched June 5 and continues through July 28. Although winners already have been selected, gallery guests still can vote for their favorite pieces. The piece that gets the most votes will receive a Peoples Choice award during the last week of the show, Mary Keating, coordinator of exhibitions at SoBo Gallery, said. Keating said the gallery received more than 220 submittals for the show. Each artist who submitted work to be featured was only to submit two pieces, meaning more than 100 artists submitted their work. The Top Choice Art Show features one piece from the 60 artists who earned a spot. Every year, the submittals have increased, Keating said. We turn down really great artwork all the time. Nobody should feel badly about being rejected, because wonderful works are rejected all the time. We only have so much space.EARLY STARTBorn and raised in Greece, Mamounas, 60, started painting when he was about 10 years old. It was my fifth-grade teacher who inspired me to paint, Mamounas said. He was a painter. After the year was over, we formed a little group and painted on Sundays at his shop. Thats what got me started early on. Today, Mamounas is a surgical oncologist who treats breastcancer patients. His work requires frequent travel for conferences and lectures, and he also works at least 60 hours a week with patients at the hospital and writing and researching at home. He is also a member and conducts research for the NRG Oncology Group. Hes been involved with the group since 1989 and has been the chair of the groups breast-cancer committee since 1997. Mamounas said he tries to find time to paint every day, but his busy schedule makes it difficult. Its a struggle, sometimes, Mamounas said. I have a little studio at home (I paint) when ever I can find time after (work) hours (and) weekends. I take my paintings with me on vacation, so I can spend some time painting when Im away.WHATEVER COMES TO MINDMamounas works with oil paints and watercolors. The main theme of his paintings is to emphasize light and shade, and many of his paintings features a very broad contrast. He marries his career with his creativity as he paints fine details with surgical precision in all of his paintings. A lot of times, I paint details and complex themes, but it still relaxes me a lot, Mamounas said. I like paintings where theres a lot of contrast between light and shade. If you look at my paintings (they have) a very broad contrast. In terms of the work itself, Mamounas enjoys painting stilllife objects such as plants, stones and fruits. He also paints landscapes and portraits of people and pets every now and then. On a number of occasions, Mamounas has combined his talent as a painter and work as a cancer doctor and created paintings to be auctioned off at fundraising events related to cancer. A lot my early paintings focus on my kids or my wife and scenes from our family life, Mamounas said. I try not to box myself in a corner painting the same thing. I always think about (painting) different things whatever comes to mind.

A crowd gathered under the new Willie Welch Pavilion for the dedication of Pollard Park, on West Hull Avenue, and the old Masonic Lodge cornerstone. Eugene Pollard lived most of his life in Oakland. He was a wellrespected leader and resident and was active in his church, St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church, now Champions Cathedral, in Oak land. He owned various rooming houses, as well as two homes, in Oakland. Pollard served as secretary of the Mount Herman Masonic Lodge No. 45. The lodge, formerly located on Sadler Avenue, was erected in 1950, and Pollard was respected for his role in the lodge. During the dedication of the park, the town unveiled the demolished lodges cornerstone, which was preserved and placed at the parks south end. The late Lillie Wade was recognized, too, during the ceremony. She was a member of the lodges Eastern Star and was the 32nddegree grand matron, the highest honor in the lodge and one that she held for more than 25 years. Wade taught kindergarten at the lodge when it was used as a school for a few years. Wades daughters, Barbara Wade Massey, Betty Wade and Katherine Wright, were in attendance Saturday. The third person recognized was the late Commissioner Willie Welch. The pavilion was dedicated in a previous ceremony; his marker now has been placed. Vice Mayor Mike Satterfield, who was close friends with Welch, said the two sat on Welchs porch many times discussing the need for such a park and a pavilion large enough to hold large families wishing to take advantage of the covered area. Everyone is so proud of this park, Town Manager Dennis Foltz said. It gets so much use, especially this pavilion and basketball court. The park once offered the court and little else. Pollards family sold the adjacent land to the town for a park. In 2014, more than 300 volunteers came together to build a KaBOOM! playground on the property. The Bond Foundation provided grant money to build a fence.Oakland dedicates Pollard Park Amy QuesinberrySisters Betty Wade, left, Barbara Wade Massey and Katherine Wright stand by the dedicated cornerstone of the former Mount Herman Masonic Hall No. 45.

WINGATE DIED SUNDAY, JUNE 17, 2018Kenneth R. Wingate, 74, of Win ter Garden, Florida, was invited home by his Lord on Sunday, June 17, 2018, after a long battle with leukemia. He died peacefully in his home surrounded by all his beloved family. Ken was born June 14, 1944, in Zolfo Springs, Florida, to Reuben A. Ray and Jewel G. Wingate, who will welcome him into heaven. He is survived by his wife, Bonny L. Wingate; daughters, Lisa (Russ) Ward and Sharon (Bill) Lowe; and grandchildren, Michael Wingate, Alex Ward and Kaitlin Ward. He was also survived by his sister, Loretta Parrish; and brother, Don (Carole) Wingate. Ken and Bonny were married April 19, 1967, in Hallstead, Pennsylvania, and lived their life in Ocoee and Winter Garden, Flor ida. They celebrated their 50th anniversary in the home of Don and Carole Wingate, surrounded by many who spoke of his kindness and generosity and how much he had changed their lives with his wisdom and example. Ken served West Orange Church of Christ as a Deacon from January 1994 to September 1997; and, as a Shepherd from September 1997 to December 2016, when his health forced him to step down. However, he continued to teach and influence others to the end of his days. Ken did not know it at the time, but his great blunder around age 17 set up his life career. At the advice of an older cousin, he drove Dads car into the creek at a point that was quite deep, sinking the car to the top of the roof. Dad made Ken spend the entire summer taking the 1956 Plymouth apart piece by piece, marking every piece, cleaning every piece and then putting the entire car back together in running order. That summer, the only way to talk with Ken was going into the barnyard while he worked. He did it, and the car ran for years. After leaving college, he and a friend opened his first auto repair shop in Wauchula, Florida, around 1964. He moved to Orlando, Flor ida, and worked at several jobs in the tire industry from 1968-74 (Goodyear, Uniroyal Tire, Pan American and Radial Tire Center). In 1974, he opened Muffler Man & Wholesale Tire Company on West Colonial Drive in Pine Hills, Florida. That venture was so successful that he opened a garage in Longwood and Wingate Automotive Supply Company in Pine Hills. Over the years, Ken formed a partnership with his brother, Don Wingate, and they invested in other ventures, with one being Run-A-Bout Auto Mart in Ocoee, Florida. It is good to know that the mistakes of youth can be the reward of adulthood. In 1984, Ken also formed a partnership with his parents, brother Don and sister Loretta Parrish in two companies: Lakendon Inc. and Wingate Rentals. Through those, they bought and developed various commercial properties in Ocoee, Longwood, Port Orange, Wauchula and Orlando. Ken has been retired from his ventures for the past few years due to his health issues. Outside of work and family, Ken loved fishing, travel, playing cards, shooting hoops and attending Magic games. But, his real interest was in study of the Bible, which he did for hours on end. The family is requesting that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Hospice or to West Orange Church of Christ. Ken never wanted attention to be on him but always wanted it for others, so to honor him will be to honor what he loved. Memorial service will be held at 6 p.m. June 22, 2018, at West Orange Church of Christ, 1450 Daniels Road, Winter Garden, FL 34787; phone, (407) 656-2770. This will be followed by a big celebration of his life in Odom Hall.Dinner will be provided, so please come with your favorite Ken story and a big appetite.He is paying for every thing and wants all his friends and loved ones to rejoice with him one last time before we all meet again. www.winteroakfuneralhome.com113 2 E.

After herniating disks in his lower back five-and-onehalf years ago, professional golfer Chris Couch thought he might never be able to play again. And for the next five years, he didnt. Instead, he took on the role of teaching the sport he loves. Couch, a Winter Garden resident, was injured in August 2012 and has been in a teaching role since spring 2013. I actually thought Id never play again, he said. Thats the thing (with my back) I never know. When you get herniated disks, theyre so close together that if you make a wrong move, it spasms throughout your whole back. It paralyzes you literally. But he defied the odds in September 2017, when he walked back onto the green and picked up a club for the first time in five years.MAKING HISTORYCouch went pro in 1995 and has one PGA Tour victory and five web. com victories to his credit. His PGA victory came at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans in 2006, when he shot 269 one point ahead of runner-up Fred Funk. He also golfed for Coconut Creek SPORTSJUNE 21, 2018 Ocoee Little League Brewers Alex Martinez excels both in and out of the baseball stadium. Page 18.1 The Bill Marshall Memorial Scholarship has been presented to seniors Liam Carrasco and Sam Smicherko, two outstanding water polo payers at West Orange High School. The scholarship was started in 1994 in memory of Bill Marshall, a WOHS parent, who loved youth work, swimming, diving and water polo. He was instrumental in bringing water polo to West Orange as a sanctioned sport. Susie Marshall made the presentation in memory of her husband.2 In game one of two against the Winter Park Diamond Dawgs, Drenis Ozuna helped the Winter Garden Squeeze pick up a 9-3 win. He went 1-for-4 with a huge 3-RBI homer. The 3-RBI he picked up in the game put Ozuna up top as the RBI leader for the Squeeze with seven.3 Hoop Dream Elite is holding one of its summer camps from June 25 through 28 at its facility in Winter Garden.

SEE COACH PAGE 18Liam Carrasco, left, Susie Marshall and Sam SmicherkoTROY HERRINGASSOCIATE EDITORIts been a tough start to the season for the Winter Garden Squeeze, which currently sit at the bottom of the Florida Collegiate Summer League with a record of 3-8. Despite a 1-7 start to the year, the Squeeze have been able to right the ship a bit as they went 2-1 last week, which included a dominating 12-1 win over the Sanford River Rats in a weather-shortened fiveinning game and a 9-3 win against the Winter Park Diamond Dawgs in game one of a doubleheader. The Squeeze fell 7-3 in the second game. The improvements have come from his guys getting time to work out the kinks and adapting to summer collegiate ball, head coach Jay Welsh said. When kids come in from using the metal bats during the course of the college year, it takes a little time to adjust to wooden bats, and I think our team has taken a little longer than most, Welsh said. Hopefully now, well start to seeing the offense continue to progress.Fairway formI actually thought Id never play again. Thats the thing (with my back) I never know.

In the game against the Diamond Dawgs, second baseman Drenis Ozuna an Orlando native and junior at Connors State College went 1-for-4, but that one hit was a massive 3-RBI dinger that helped lead the Squeeze to its 9-3 win. The homer also placed Ozuna first on the team for RBI. But Ozuna wasnt the only force at the plate. In that same game, Ryan Brooks had a perfect day as he went 3-for-3 with a double and back-to-back home runs. The Squeezes home-run leader (three homers) also racked up three RBI. The Squeeze also have the consistent hitting of first baseman Aaron Anderson sophomore at Flagler College to help put runners on for the big hitters. With a .353 average, Ander son is currently the fourthbest hitter in the league, and in the last three games alone, he has gone 5-for-9 with a double while bringing in two runs and accounting for two runs. He (Anderson) has a good idea in terms of his approach to the plate, and a lot of our play ers need to learn that approach, Welsh said. It becomes a situation where you want to be selective as to what pitches you choose to swing and not swing at. And the Squeeze havent stopped with just better hitting. They also are pitching better collectively as a team. As of Monday, June 18, the Squeeze have four pitchers with an ERA under 2.00. Ryan Ashworth an Ocoee native who attends Flagler College has proven to be the most consistently used of the bunch. He has pitched 10.1 innings through three games. He has given up only two runs, while picking up nine strikeouts and three walks. I knew it would be a slower start as they find their rhythm, and then hopefully, they get into a groove where they start coming on at the end of the year when other teams are finding that their arms are gassed a little bit, Welsh said. The primary goal is to get these guys to work and to keep them focused, and keep them moving in the right direction and positive direction the next goal is having positive results come from that. How did you get started in baseball? I think it was really (because) my dad showed me baseball, and I got really interested and into it, and I wanted to play. How old were you when you started? Four. Did your dad play baseball or any other sport? (Yes but) he mostly played basketball, actually. Do you have any siblings? Do they play baseball? (I have) my little brother Angel, and I have an older brother, Alijian. Yes (they play). Why do you like playing baseball? Because its fun, and no game is ever going to be that similar to other ones. Its fun to hang out with your friends and just play. SPORTS SPOTLIGHTAlex Martinez plays for the Ocoee Little League Brewers. He is a hard hitter at bat and notched his rst home run in April 2017. Since then, hes hit a total of 18 home runs in games. Martinez not only hits it out of the park on the eld but also in the classroom. He frequently makes the honor roll and brings home As and Bs on his report cards. Hell be playing at the Cal Ripkin Baseball Experience in July at Myrtle Beach.SPONSORED BY MARKS FLOORSAlex Martinez THE BASICSAge: 12 School: Ocoee Middle Position(s): 1B, Outeld Height: 5-foot-6 Throws/Hits: Right Hometown: Born in Or lando; lives in Ocoee Travel Team: Team Orlando High School in Fort Lauderdale, and at one point was ranked No. 1 nationally. His high-school career led to a full-ride scholar ship at the University of Florida. From 1996 to 2002, he found sponsors for which to play and after that became a journeyman player between and the PGA Tour. After his injury in 2012, he a gained Major Medical Extension with the PGA Tour and was given four starts to retain his status. If he didnt start playing soon, his medical status with the tour would be revoked. Although teaching has been his priority for the last five years and hes gained both more knowledge of the swing and more students, he decided to try to play the four tournaments he was given. Even though I havent gotten better, I decided to give it a try to see what I could do, he said. That way I can maintain some sort of status on tour. I went literally probably five years without really playing at all.THE SWING OF THINGSIn September 2017, he headed back out to the course to begin practicing and see how his back felt. From then on, he has taken it one day at a time; his back can spasm or act up at any time. This year I decided, Im getting kinda old, so why dont I try to play some tournaments? he said. I figured Id play those four tournaments, and maybe if I got into a couple more, great. I teed it up for the first time in five-andone-half years in Innisbrook (in March). During the four-day Valspar Championship in Innisbrook, Chris made his comeback debut. His wife, Julia, caddied for him, and he did well he ended up just inside the top 50. I got on the tee and felt pretty good, and I drove it right down the middle of the first hole and made birdie on the very first hole, he said. (Julia) did well, and I made the cut. I owe all the credit there to God. After not playing for five-and-a-half years in a tour nament and practicing maybe six months before the tournament, I just couldnt believe I made the cut, to be honest. But a little more than a month later, during the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head, Chris was not having a good day with his back. He had a bad first round, and his back went out during warmups the second morning. He ended up making it through nine holes. Couch has three more tournaments coming up in July, and its a challenge in which he hopes to find success. He is currently set to play in The Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia, the John Deere Classic in Illinois and the Barbasol Championship in Kentucky.LOVE OF TEACHINGAlthough Couch is happy to be back out on the course, he said teaching and coaching at West Orange Country Club remains his first priority. Even when he is out playing, he has his students send him videos to critique. Couchs business is called Chris Couch Golf Instruction, and Julia serves his manager. He has had a couple of students so far turn pro, and some of his junior students currently are making their way through their college careers. He also hopes to get some his players out on tour and watch them succeed. To win at the top level was my dream, and I was blessed enough to do it once I call myself a onehit wonder (on the PGA), he said. Just to win once is an incred ible feat, it was a great journey and not too many people can say theyve won on the biggest tour in the world. Im proud of that and now I want to give back and watch one of my students try to win. Im confident in how I teach, and I really enjoy it, he said. I enjoy watching players get better, and its nice to give back to the game and know that I have something to do with it.CoachFROM PAGE 17SqueezeFROM PAGE 17 Which do you prefer pitch, fielding or hitting? Fielding because its fun to get out and make nice plays and interacting with your teammates making creative plays. What is some good baseball advice that youve received? Stay focused and try your hardest. Who is your favorite baseball player? Kris Bryant. What is your favorite baseball team? The Chicago Cubs. If you could play a game of baseball on any baseball field in the country, which would you choose? Wrigley Field. What is your favorite baseball memory so far? How old were you? How did you feel in that moment? (It was) the first time Ive ever hit a home run. I think I was 11. I felt like Ive finally done my job to where I could actually hit it (the ball) over the fence. Besides baseball, what do you like to do with your free time? Sometimes I play video games. Whats your favorite video game right now? Fortnite. What is a good movie that youve seen recently? Avengers: Infinity War. Without any spoilers, what did you think about the ending? I did not like the ending at all.

WEST ORANGE TIMES & OBSERVER | THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2018 19 Coming off of a senior season at Jacksonvilles Arlington Country Day School in 2005 during which he helped his team win a state championship, Brian Hoff had plenty of options for where he would play his col lege basketball. Of those, which included fullride scholarship offers to smaller programs, Hoff the new boys basketball coach at Windermere Prep instead rolled the dice and enrolled at Florida State Univer sity as walk-on. My dream was always to kind of play at the biggest school possible, and Florida State recruited me as a preferred walk-on, Hoff recalled. I always believed in myself, and I always bet on myself. That confidence manifested itself for Hoff in the form of a respectable career at FSU; he was named a captain for the Seminoles during his senior season in 200809. Since then, he has worked for the Phoenix Suns, Oklahoma State and as the associate head coach at the Providence School in Jacksonville. That experience and confidence now will be put to use for the program at Windermere Prep, which announced Hoff as the successor to Ben Wilson May 16. Im pumped to be here this is a special place, Hoff said. I was in a great situation (at Providence), and I always thought that it wasnt going to be easy for me to leave. I was under one of the top coaches in the country, and it was going to take something big. For me, (Windermere Prep) is a destination place. In addition to his playing career at FSU and professional experience working in the NBA, Hoff has coached a number of dynamic players while at Providence School including 23 Division I signees. Most notable among those alumni is Grayson Allen, a college star for the Duke Blue Devils who is expected to be selected in the NBA Draft June 21. As for what that means for the Lakers, Hoff hopes it will help facilitate buy-in from his new roster. All of that stuff gives you credibility, Hoff said. In particular, the Lakers new head coach brings a background heavy in analytics to campus. His work as an intern for the Suns was organized around analytics. Although that doesnt necessarily mean Windermere Prep will shoot as many 3-pointers as teams in the NBA he emphasized that his system will be personnel-driven it does mean the Lakers will be a well-prepared team every time they take the floor. Hoff said he envisions having a free-flowing system where his players are empowered to make decisions on the court. There is room for analytics, and there is room for your eyes both are very important, Hoff said. Hoff said he has gone right to work getting to know his new players, something the Lakers summer schedule should help facilitate. Coming from a program at Providence where he learned under head coach Jim Martin a four-time Coach of the Year in Florida and won two state championships, Hoff said he is aware of the possibilities at Windermere Prep. Ben Wilson and his staff did a remarkable job of building this program into what it is today, Hoff said. Im thrilled to be able to be the guy to continue build ing.
