WEST ORANGE TIMES & OBSERVER | THURSDAY, JULY 5, 2018 3 Come nd a safe haven for your soul at Haven of Grace Bible ChurchTemporarily meeting at: e Stone Crest Meeting House in the Foxcrest Subdivison 13520 Foxcrest Blvd. Winter Garden, FL 34787 Sundays at 9:30 and 10:30 am HavenOfGraceBibleChurch.com 407-952-0510 Our Mission is to:Serve the Lord and other saints Transform into the image of Christ E dify one another in love Evangelize with the Gospel of Grace Learn and apply Gods Word Together, through Gods strength, we can become spiritually strong as STEEL. Come grow with us!Friends of Les Feldick 278752 To discourage the demand that keeps puppy mills and kitten factories in business, Orange County commissioners directed county officials to draft a new animal ordinance that addresses retail pet-sale restrictions. The proposal came forward following a growing trend of jurisdictions passing stricter regulations to curtail the sale of cats and dogs bred by high-volume animal-breeding facilities. Puppy mills often subject dogs to unsanitary conditions, keeping them in crowded cages where they receive no exercise and minimal food and water. Kitten factories operate in much the same way. The animals then are taken from their mothers earlier than recommended and end up in pet stores. The Humane Society of the United States, an animal protection organization, estimates about 10,000 puppy mills presently operate in the U.S. The magnitude of the problem makes it difficult to combat, but several jurisdictions have passed policies placing stricter regulations on retail pet sales. According to George Ralls, Orange Countys director of health and public safety, Florida is one of 16 states without a specific law that addresses commer cial breeding operations. He added that in Florida, there are 80 jurisdictions that ban retail pet sales, most of which are city governments and four of which are counties: Palm Beach, Hillsborough, Seminole and Lake counties. Orange County does not have an ordinance on retail pet sales, Ralls said. During the June 5 Orange County commission meeting, Ralls compared the ordinances for three of those counties. According to Ralls, Palm Beach County implemented a ban on the retail sale of cats and dogs in October 2016, forbidding the issuance of new pet-shop per mits. The countys eight existing pet shops were exempt from the new ordinance but are required to obtain cats and dogs only from USDA-licensed breeders. In February, Seminole County passed a law that prohibits the retail sale of animals, including in places such as flea markets, yard sales and public areas. It also required pet shops to use an adoption-based business model, meaning pet shops may only recoup costs incurred while car ing for an animal and must produce certificates of origin to customers, Ralls said. However, Palm Beach and Seminole do continue to allow pet sales by hobby breeders, animal rescue organizations and the countys animal shelter. And in Lake County, only the countys animal shelter, animal-rescue organizations and private animal owners are allowed to sell cats and dogs. Violations in each county are subject to fines of up to $500. Commissioners instructed county officials to draft an ordinance implementing the best practices from surrounding jurisdictions. Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs said shed prefer an ordinance with firm restrictions. Any resulting ordinance would be effective in municipalities without an existing retail pet-sale ordinance. I dont have a problem with trying to be more restrictive and starting because I have also had too many friends who bought their dogs from pet stores and the dogs came with a lot of problems, Jacobs said. The families kept them, because they fell in love with them, but they shouldnt have been bred and had those problems in the first place. So I just think its a very unhealthy situation, and Id like to see us take a strong position. Seminole County resident Katrina Shadix cautioned commissioners about USDA-licensed breeding facilities. One thing about requiring pet stores to sell only from USDAlicensed breeders is that the USDA is very short on officials and enforcement, Shadix said. Theres a lot of violations that happen every year. Theres no way they could possibly enforce and know that these animals are being properly bred. Currently, there are about 1,900 USDA-licensed breeding facilities in the U.S. and about 100 inspectors, Ralls said. And according to the Humane Society, its rare for USDA-licensed facilities found to have repeated violations to have their commer cial licenses revoked. Jacobs agreed she felt an ordinance promoting adoption of animals in the countys shelter and local rescue groups would be easier to monitor and enforce. District 1 County Commissioner Betsy VanderLey emphasized creating an easily enforceable ordinance. Whatever we do in terms of an ordinance, we need to make sure we can enforce what we do, she said. Im not a fan of putting language out there that we dont then fund positions to enforce.DANIELLE HENDRIXBLACK TIE EDITOROut of 50,000 high-school stu dents with the highest PSAT/ NMSQT test scores this year, only 7,500 seniors will have received National Merit Scholarships for college. And of those 7,500, at least eight West Orange-area students are among them. Local students who received college-sponsored scholarships include: Olympia Highs Gar rett Fullerton and Megan Galeski; West Orange Highs Sarah Tatum; Windermere Preparatory Schools Dale Hill; Lake Highland Preparatory Schools Jonathan Khouzam; and Cypress Creek Highs Kevin Wu. Students who received the National Merit $2,500 scholar ship are Windermere Preps William Sealy and Olympia Highs Soo Min Kim.

She sees herself going to graduate school and becoming a doctor in the medical research field. I was introduced to the whole (idea of) making sure you had a good PSAT score and all that by my cousin, she said. I studied really hard and kind of knew it was out there, so I made sure I did well on the test. The opportunity couldnt have been any better, because just doing well on that one test got me a full ride to UF. Tatum is also part of the Stamps Scholars program at UF and will spend the remainder of her summer studying abroad with fellow scholars in Mexico. At West Orange High, her extracurriculars included marching band and serving as president of the National Honor Society. I was very excited (about being a finalist) but at the time I really wanted to go to Duke, she said. ...There was no way I could pass the opportunity of going to school for free versus paying.GARRETT FULLERTONFullerton, 17, is a recent Olympia High graduate who will head to the University of Florida this fall to study biomedical engineering. He wants to pursue a doctoral degree and potentially go into research regarding oncology. I just had a few senior friends who told me about (NMSC) and they said, Hey, you should try to do really well on this, because itll be important later on, he said. ...I took the PSAT, and I met the qualifications for NMSC, and I did a lot more research into the program. Fullerton learned in January that he was a finalist, but he had a decision to make: Would he go out of state where he wasnt guar anteed a scholarship, or stay in state where he was guaranteed a full ride to a university? Because of the NMSC recognition, I received a full ride to the University of Florida. This was nice, so I didnt have to worry about the finances at all. I eventually decided on UF because of the reputation that it has as a top10 public university. County to draft ordinance addressing retail pet sales County commissioners invited discussion on retail pet-sale regulations to explore policy options for protecting both animals and animal owners.GABBY BAQUERONEWS EDITOR Creative Commons Image

But the names represent so much more. The 10-year-old church is a melting pot of different cultures, magnified by the fact that many families have adopted children from other countries, creating an international atmosphere at the church. The preschool is a dream come true, said Pastor William Karshima, who has led the church as senior pastor for four years. It has been on my heart, Karshima said. When we came we started noticing some needs in the church. I think the key reason that made us want to open a preschool is talking to some of the families in the church and some families we know who were involved in adoption and foster care. They said they have kids in preschool, but a lot of the schools dont know how to deal with these kids who have had so much trauma, Karshima said. You have to know how to love them and care for them differently. I think it was a frustration for many parents. My wife and myself, our hearts are all about adoption and caring for children. Katutis said this will be a typical preschool but the teachers will be trained in a social and emotional curriculum so they are prepared to work with children who might have difficulty adjusting to dif ferent environments. Our philosophy is that every child is a unique, special gift from God and deserves our time and our respect and our love, the director said. We wanted to have a place that was a different that kids who (have experienced trauma) have a place to come where they will be loved that way, Karshima said. We came up with the name Go Love because of that. We felt that every child deserved to be loved regardless of where they came from and their struggles. They deserve to be loved the way Jesus intended, he said. The school will use the Frog Street Press curriculum, which includes a conscious discipline program that works for everyone, Katutis said. (It) really promotes a classroom family, she said. You love each other, you pray for each other, you lift each other up. Were all in this together. The classrooms are broken down by age. There will be six students in the 1-year-old class, 11 in the 2-year-old class, 14 total in two 3-year-old classes and 18 4-year-olds with two teachers in the VPK class. The staff is considering offer ing parenting classes once school is in session. Katutis, a Winter Garden resident, came on as a consultant but ended up taking the full-time directors position. I believe it totally was God pushing me out of where I was and putting me where I need to be, she said. Kids are my life. I respect them. I love them. I always do whats best for them. Prior to joining the Go Love team, Katutis worked for seven years at Christ the King Lutheran Preschool, in south Orlando. She has worked with children of all ages since 1999. Kids are wonderful, she said. I think the reason I relate to them so well is I respect them. Theyre not a pet, theyre not an animal. They are a little person. They have thoughts, and they have ideas. If you respect that, they will respect you. Let them feel like they have something to contribute.

Matthew Matt Bustamante, 19, had just gotten a physical exam to check his health because hed had trouble gaining weight. His mother, Lisa Largue, had expected something benign, per haps a thyroid issue, given her own medical history. But what they learned later came as a complete shock. Chronic Kidney Disease, the doctors informed them. Stage 4, they added. Bustamante was born with undersized kidneys that now threaten his life. At the time of diagnosis, his kidneys were functioning at 24%, leaving everyone baffled as to how hed managed avoid showing showing any serious symptoms for so long. I still dont really feel that bad considering how far along I am, Bustamante said. His kidneys now function at about 12%, and he is on several medications and adheres to a strict diet. He finds himself dealing with sleepless nights and unable to continue playing basketball due to fatigue, as his body diverts all its energy to operating his kidneys. Hes also had to put on hold his goal of working for Disney and pursuing a film career. So far, eight people have been tested as potential matches for him, with no success. Now, its just a matter of getting the word out.The family hopes to find a match before his kidneys reach 10% function, at which point hed need to start dialysis. You never know, there might be people out there willing to donate kidneys to non-family members, said his grandmother, Barbara Downing. Ifhe doesnt get a transplantwithin two months, the doctor said hes going to have to go on dialysis, judging by his numbers. Bustamante was placed on a national kidney waitinglist. However, the supply of kidneys from deceased donors has been unable to keep up with demand and he is running out of time. His family hopes to find a liv ing kidney donor to limit the wait time and because a transplant from a deceased donor versus a living donor has been shown to reduce a kidney recipients life expectancy. The family contin ues working to spread awareness of his situation and cling to the hope that theyll find a match. Its a big ask because youre literally asking for a body part, Downing said. It could save his life. Anyone willing to help get the word out can share the link to his blog Kidney4matt.com.To donate, visitbit.ly/2KjRgkm. Potential donors can check if they are a match by contacting Sue Kerkhof at (407) 303-3624 orSusan.Kerkhof@FLHosp.org.Matthew Bustamante is desperate to nd a kidney donor who could save his life.GABBY BAQUERONEWS EDITOR

Unforgettable (is) the word that comes to mind when I (think) about performing there it was truly incredible, she said. I think being in this other country and exploring it was an awesome experience in itself, but I really felt like the performance was the pinnacle of the whole (trip).

The Garden Choir was one of many choral groups from around the world that attended and performed at the Limerick Sings International Choral Festival at the University of Limerick in Limerick, Ireland. There were actually several days of performances, Stough said. We performed with two other major choirs. We sang with the York College singers from York College in Pennsylvania. Garden Choir member Danita Dunn, who lives in Winter Gar den, recalled what it was like to perform at the festival. It was just a truly remarkable experience, Dunn said. We had a chamber orchestra perform with us. We were in a concert hall, so the acoustics were fantastic. We were singing with another choir that made us (sound) even more pow erful. And to be able to sing in that venue, in that country in front of many people who were there for the music was just incredible. Garden Choir Director Dr. Jef fery Redding served as the festivals artistic director. He is also the choral director for West Orange High School, Dunn said. As a result of that (position), his choir was invited to attend, Dunn said, adding that not every member of the choir was able to attend. Everyone was given the opportunity (to go), but its an expensive trip, and youve got to take time off of work, so not everyone could go. But, we wish everyone could have been there. Windermere resident Nancy Rex, also a member of the Garden Choir, said the group sang seven songs during its performance. My absolute favorite part of the trip was getting to know the (Garden) Choir members better, because when we go to choir (rehearsals), you go in, you get there a few minutes early and get settled, Rex said. You might talk for a minute or two, and then you rehearse. You work. Theres no talking during rehearsal, which is how it should be so you can learn your music. And then afterward, its late and people need to get home. So, theres not a lot of time to socialize. Rex said the Garden Choir always is looking for new members. Those who are interested can visit the Garden Choir website to learn more. She said the Garden Choir rehearses during the school year at 7 p.m. on Mondays at the West Orange High School chorus room. They will start meeting again when school starts. Our entire mission is building community through song, Rex said. We are a community of people who love music, and it doesnt matter if youre a professional musician or if youre somebody who likes to sing at home, youre welcome to come.CONTINUED FROM PAGE 7 Choir goes to Ireland More than 170 campers took part in Bridgewater Middle Schools 10th annual summer band camp in June.

THESE OLD TIMES WEST ORANGE HISTORYFROM THE WINTER GARDEN HERITAGE FOUNDATION FROM THE ARCHIVESThis bucolic setting shows the Killarney Post Oce as it appeared 20 years ago in 1998. Surrounded by greenery, it served residents of the small unincorporated community located among the former orange groves standing between Lake Apopka and Deer Island. Constructed around 1900, it was initially an oce for a nearby sawmill. It served as the Killarney Post Oce for many years and closed in 1998; patrons still possessing 34740 Killarney post oce boxes receive their mail at the Oakland facility. The building still stands, but drivers barely notice it as they zoom past on dramatically widened State Road 50.

She was born on June 19, 1924, in Ocoee, Florida. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 63 years, John Penkacik; her parents, Mason Clindon and Claudia Underwood Reeves of Ocoee, Florida; and brother, Dolphus Reeves, from San Diego, California. Ouida was deeply loved and will be missed greatly by her children, Mary and Charlie Black, Peggy and Bob Terry, Cheryl and Joe Nastasi and John David Penkacik; her loving grandchildren, Jennifer and Mark Terlep, Brian and Laura Black, Leigh-Anne and David ORegan, JaimeLyn and Bryson Womack, Patrick and Lori Terry, Joseph and Nicole Nastasi, Julie Nastasi and Brooke Esperanza. She is also survived by her treasured great-grandchildren, Tyler and Abby Terlep, Calvin and Olivia Black, Keara and Declan ORegan, Torah and Aspen Womack, Aidan and Ian Terry and Billie Grace Nastasi; by her very loved sisters-in-law and many extended family and friends. Ouida grew up in Ocoee, Flor ida, and graduated from Ocoee High School in 1942. She attended nursing school at ORMC. Ouida fell in love with her U.S. Army guy from Buffalo, New York, who was stationed in Orlando and attended Radar School in Ocoee, where he discovered his smalltown Southern sweetheart. She married the love of her life on August 29, 1944, at the First Baptist Church of Winter Garden. They built their home in Orlando. John and Ouida were lifelong members of First Baptist Church in downtown Orlando and founding members of the Downtown Baptist Church. During their many years of service, they found many ways to support the ministries helping to establish the old skating rink and family skate nights, teaching young people and maintaining the mail list and weekly mailing of the newsletter to the families of Downtown Baptist. Ouida also enjoyed planning and leading the senior adults activities and trips for many years. Ouida, along with her husband, left quite a rich heritage of faith and family. The love and joy they found in their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren was second only to their love and devotion to their Father in Heaven. During their last years, the pastor and members of Orlando Reformed Presbyterian Church have supported Ouida and John with encouragement, love and prayers. The family is thankful for this care. The family also is very grateful for the assisted-living and health-care staff at Westminster Towers in Orlando.

Andrew Michael Cook, Peter Cooks brother, died in Chile at 39 years old in January 2017. Andrew was well-known for having lived a life full of compassion for others and volunteerism, Cook said. According to Andrews obit uary, he worked with religious leaders in New York City to improve interfaith relations, served as a counselor to highschool students from wartorn Cyprus, volunteered for the American Red Cross and launched a pay-it-forward project to spur volunteerism in Chile, where Andrew had lived for nine years. However, Cook was unaware of just how loved by the community his brother was until he attended his funeral and heard the stories stories that both touched and inspired him, as they demonstrated just how large his brothers heart was. Following his brothers death, Cook decided to do something to continue his brothers legacy of volunteerism and came up with the concept of his non profit, Largest Heart. When I started diving into this, I realized how bad things really are, Cook said. After my brothers death, and just seeing how he lived, changed my life. Before, I was very all about me and building my empire. And just after seeing how he lived and how he paid it forward and how he treated other people Ive never seen anything like it. My life was never the same again. He inspired me to make a differ ence in peoples lives and inspire change and to spread hope, love and knowledge. Thats what our mission is all about.HOW IT WORKSThe nonprofits site, which went live about five weeks ago, allows visitors to donate money, nominate a cause, vote for a cause via an online poll for GABBY BAQUERONEWS EDITORInspired by the life of his brother, Winter Garden resident Peter Cook founded a nonprot named Largest Heart. which they believe donations should be used, and purchase merchandise, such as T-shirts and tote bags. Once a poll ends, the winning cause receives all funding dollars. Largest Heart works with Charity Navigator to identify the top 10 participating nonprofits in the winning cause, and people then vote on the best three. Ninety percent of all proceeds are then donated to those three organizations. Its a nonprofit without a cause, Cook said. Its based on the wisdom of the crowd group thinking (and) the whole idea is that it takes a village to raise a child. We need to deter mine what the greatest needs are, so lets identify a cause and let's identify the best three nonprofits to solve it. And in return for the money that we give them, we receive their best practices, a case study and they mentor another nonprofit, he said. I mean, if theyre awesome then lets pull somebody else up and make them awesome too. Its about paying it forward. Cook, who comes from a business background, said he never foresaw himself leading a non profit organization and has been learning as he goes. He decided to take an innovative business approach when coming up with the concept of Largest Heart to make sure other nonprofits also benefit. To do that, Cook collects the best practices and case studies from the three nonprofits who receive money from Largest Heart. He then shares the infor mation with other nonprofits tackling similar causes. Most nonprofits are really small, he said. So the question is, How can you maximize your resources and why don't you partner with other small nonprofits fighting the same thing? If I can provide them with the best practices and case studies that show them how to do things better, thats going to help them operate more efficiently and help more people. And thats ultimately the goal. When asked what he believed his brother would think if he could see what Cook has recently accomplished, Cook said his brother would likely urge him to continue. Hed say, Continue to be the change you want to see in the world, Cook said. Gandhi inspired my brother, and Andrew believed that if you had love in your heart, youll always do the right thing.Courtesy photoPeter Cook is the founder of Largest Heart, a nonprot that donates 90% of its proceeds to nonprof its that tackle social issues, such as homelessness, human tracking, the food waste epidemic and related issues.TO DONATETo donate to Largest heart or purchase some of its merchandise, you can visit the website at largestheart.org.

Addressing athletic directors and administrators from around the state at a recent compliance seminar, Justin Harrison the Associate Executive Director for Athletic Services for the FHSAA shared an interesting discovery. He explained that he had been researching how the FHSAA has divided up its members into classifications over the years, and was surprised to find the status quo has been around for some time. The oldest handbook I could find was from 1931, and the classification was done based solely on student enrollment, Harrison said to the group. I talk to you today, in 2018, and classification is done solely based on student enrollment. Is it time for a change? For the FHSAA, the answer seems to be yes. The organization has been busy meeting with athletic directors and coaches around the state in recent weeks, sharing information and gathering feedback on a proposal that would fundamentally alter the landscape in several sports: boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, girls volley ball, baseball and softball. In order to address problems such as blowouts in state tour nament games, a downturn in attendance for playoff games and a general sense of an uneven play ing field throughout the state, the FHSAA is proposing a reduction in the number of classifications and a wholesale change in how teams are assigned to a classifiSPORTSJULY 5, 2018 Gehrig Chambless had a memorable senior season for the Legacy baseball team. Page 14STEVEN RYZEWSKISENIOR SPORTS EDITORSEE FHSAA PAGE 14 SUNSHINE STATESHUFFLE?A new proposal being pushed by the FHSAA to its members would dramatically alter the landscape in several team sports reducing the number of state championships awarded and signicantly chang ing the way teams are grouped to compete for those championships.KEY DETAILS SPORTS IMPACTED: Basketball (boys and girls), soccer (boys and girls), girls volleyball, baseball and softball GENERAL OUTLINE OF CHANGES: Change all sports besides soccer from nine classications to six divisions (soccer would change from ve classications to six divisions); Assign divisions based on two-year power rank ings (tentatively to be provided by MaxPreps); Divisions One and Two will have 64 teams each; Divisions Three through Six will divide remaining teams evenly, with each classication having eight regions; Elimination of districts; Top-64 teams in each division will make playos and be seeded based on power rank ings, participating in a six-round tournament to crown a champion; Does not apply to rural classication TIMELINE TO IMPLEMENTATION: Currently in a feedback phase; Tentatively will go before FHSAA Board of Directors in September as a discussion item; If that goes well, could be voted on as soon as the FHSAA Board of Directors meet ing in October; If successful in October, would be implemented for 2019-20 school year THE ISSUESWHAT IS THE FHSAA TRYING TO FIX? Lack of excitement Attendance/revenue from state series games Blowouts in state seminals and state nals Adapting to a more mobile society Travel/geography issues created by districts Extra insight: The FHSAAs Justin Harrison said in a recent compliance seminar that attendance is down for state series game and that an increase in classications from six, to eight, to nine within the past decade has actually led to lower revenue. He also said that change is needed to adapt to a landscape where there are more magnet, charter and private schools than ever before. He added that schools in spread-out districts are weary of bus trips that arrive home after midnight all for games against teams that could hardly be considered rivals.THE GOALSWHAT ARE THE DESIRED RESULTS?

Closed Sunday West Orange Habitat Restore 278047 cation or divisions, as they are referred to in the proposal. Outlined in the proposal is moving all of the listed sports to six divisions. For every sport beside boys and girls soccer, this would be a decrease from nine classifications for soccer, it would be an increase, formerly having had five classifications. The second change would be in how those divisions are assigned. To determine what division a team plays in, all member schools with teams playing a particular sport will be ranked using power rankings to be done via MaxPreps, which already does this on a state-bystate and national basis. The top 64 teams in the state will be assigned to Division One, the next 64 teams will be assigned to Division Two, and the remaining teams will be divided evenly amongst the remaining four divisions, with the rural division (currently Class 1A) remaining as is. The initial idea is to reassign divisions every two years, based on the average of a teams power ranking over the past two years. Furthermore, districts would be eliminated in the proposal. In Divisions One and Two, where there would be just 64 teams, every team will be placed in a 64-team postseason tournament after the conclusion of the regular season. Seeding will be based on the updated rankings at the end of the season. In Divisions Three through Six, however, only the top eight teams in each of eight regions as determined by the power rankings would make the playoffs. This would be a depar ture from the current system in all of these sports, where every team regardless of record in the regular season gets the chance to compete in a district tournament where it can earn a postseason berth. The hope for the FHSAA, which has thrown its support behind the proposal, is to implement the new system for the 2019-20 school year. For that to happen, the item would have to be met favorably as a discussion item during an FHSAA Board of Directors meeting scheduled for September, and then officially voted on at the Boards meeting in October. As would be expected with any change of such significance, SPORTS SPOTLIGHTGehrig Chambless put up some monster numbers as a senior for the Legacy baseball program this past spring, hitting .519 with 14 extra-base hits, scoring 32 runs and having 26 stolen bases on the year. A captain for the Eagles, Chambless helped the team earn a 16-11 record its best to date and its rst win in a district tournament game. For his performance, he has been oered a roster spot at Palm Beach State, where he will look to make the team and begin his college baseball career, beginning in the fall.SPONSORED BY MARKS FLOORSGehrig Chambless THE BASICSAge: 19 Height: 6-foot-1 Weight: 190 lbs. Position(s): C, 1B Hometown: Oakland Varsity team: Legacy Travel team: Minnesota BlizzardWhich game this past season was most memorable? As far as games, it would be our (district tournament win) against Foundation Academy coming back in the ninth inning and winning. What are you most proud of from your time at Legacy? I think to have as many wins this year as we had the last two years, combined, I think the team really came together well and it was cool to see that happen. How do you feel you have left the program at Legacy? I think its in a great place. I think its now reached a point where people are hearing about Legacy and it has become a place they want to come do, join and play baseball here. The program has improved so much.FHSAAFROM PAGE 13What was it like playing for your father, Legacy head coach Jack Chambless, dur ing your varsity career? It was awesome. He is not only a great coach, but was extremely encouraging the entire time and always pushing us to be better. I would have never done it dif ferently Im so glad he was my coach. What stood out about Palm Beach State? They have an excellent baseball program. I just think its a great opportunity to have a shot at making the team and seeing how far I can go down there. Im also interested in the business and film programs, academically. What are you doing to prepare for your college career? Ive done a lot of working out this summer and also continuing to hit in the cages, practicing with my dad a lot. Getting bigger and getting faster Ive been trying to improve my pop-time and getting the ball out faster. That kind of thing. What would your advice for a young catcher be? I think just being a good leader setting an example for everyone else but also being very encouraging, especially with the pitcher. You have to make sure you stay calm, so the pitcher stays calm. What is your dream job? Ive kind of tossed it up in the air. I want to own my own business someday. The out there dream is also to perhaps be a director. Of course, my dream is also to get drafted thats every baseball players dream. Where is a place you would like to travel to? Alaska. I think (because of) the idea of it being the Last Frontier and Ive always loved the outdoors. Ive been to 47 of the 50 states, so I think Alaska is the next one Id like to go to. STEVEN RYZEWSKI THE CHATTERThe following are some concerns and some compliments shared by athletic directors and coaches for this story, regarding the proposed changes to the FHSAA State Series in several sports. COMMON CONCERNS:I always fear that when you get away from enrollment (as a means of assigning classications) that gets a little scary. Lisa Eaves, Foundation Academy Athletic DirectorThe concern I have (about the bi-annual reassignments) is what happens when I graduate a bunch of seniors and the next year Im going to be Division One with a team that is probably not Division One-caliber? Mark Griseck, Windermere High Boys Basketball CoachObviously weve got to get everybody famil iar with MaxPreps and trusting MaxPreps. Jacob Doss, Windermere Prep Athletic DirectorThe biggest thing you have to look at now is every sport (at one school) could be in a dierent classication the culture and the dynamics of the situation. Bill Alderman, Ocoee High Athletic DirectorPOSITIVE FEEDBACK:I do think it could make a lot of the games more competitive and hopefully more people will come to the games. Bill Alderman, Ocoee High Athletic DirectorWhen you're the best, when youre a good team, you always want to play the best and I think thats what this is trying to promote. Jacob Doss, Windermere Prep Athletic DirectorI think, No. 1, nine classications is way too many I thought six was a good number. I think there is general agreement that something needs to change. Mark Griseck, Windermere High Boys Basketball CoachI know the FHSAAs heart is to make it more equitable for everyone. Theyre trying to give all of these teams a chance to be successful.

PRE-SCHOOL AGES 3-6 NOW ENROLLING! XNSP16044 there is some resistance and caution. However, there also is plenty of preliminary support for it. I think (the proposal) has a lot of merit, said Lisa Eaves, the new athletic director at Foundation Academy. I think its going to allow dominant teams to not just walk through championships. Its going to allow teams that are down, that are growing, to not have to pull out (of the state series) and go independent. Perhaps no sport better exemplifies why the FHSAA wants to shake things up than boys bas ketball. State semifinals and state finals in recent years have seen blowouts and running clocks with alarming frequency. Not surprisingly, attendance in Lakeland for the championships has gone down and, in that, boys basketball is not alone. In fact, Harrison told those present at the meeting in June that overall revenue from state series playoff games in sev eral sports has gone down. You would have thought, going from six classes to nine classes, that the total amount of money coming in would have increased but its actually gone down, Harrison said. Instead, under the new system, powerhouse basketball programs such as Orlando Christian Prep, Oak Ridge and Blanche Ely each of which cruised to state title this past season, winning their respective state semifinal games by an average of 28 points would be competing for the same state championship. One of the key changes athletic directors and coaches would have to deal with, were this to come to fruition, is scheduling. District schedules account for a significant portion of any teams regular season slate, so the absence of those guaranteed games could create some additional stress. However, in the case of a school like Ocoee whose district in some sports includes schools from Lake Minneola, Seminole County and as far away as Ocala it could be a plus. Definitely, in some of our sports it would be a good thing, Ocoee Athletic Director Bill Alderman said. We have to drive up to Ocala in some sports. So, financially, it helps us out. Harrison said the hope is that a lack of districts will empower individual schools and teams to make schedules that make sense for their specific needs. That could mean scheduling teams closer to home to save on travel costs, and also not having to be in a district with a powerhouse that a program simply cannot compete with. In a sport like softball, for example, enrollment-based classification has, in the past, had West Orange and Evans in the same district despite the two programs competing at decidedly different levels. Alderman said several of his coaches have responded positively to the proposed changes, viewing them as a shot in the arm. Windermere Prep Athletic Director Jacob Doss says he wants to know more about the details, but that the general idea is good. When theres change, there is always going to be people that dont like it, Doss said. Obviously there will be questions, but its moving in the right direction. While there would presumably be a hierarchy in the value of each championship no one will confuse winning a Division Five title as being equal to the Division One title the ability of more teams to have a reasonable shot is something local administrators seem to be responding well to. You have teams that had no chance of competing for championships who now will at least have a chance, Alderman said. Of course, even if the new system is implemented, there will be drawbacks. For instance, Mark Griseck, the head boys basketball coach at Windermere High, pointed out that rankings around the cutoff point for each division will make the difference between being a team that is a long shot to compete in one division and a favorite in another. I think the 64th team (the last team assigned to Division One) is not going to be real happy and the 65th team (the top team assigned to Division Two) is probably really happy, Griseck said. Details will be monitored closely, with every person inter viewed for this story expressing the desire to know more about the MaxPreps Power Rankings. It does seem, though, that change of some sort is imminent, and many local coaches and administrators are doing their best to embrace what is to come. I do think this is going to happen and Im trying to find all of the positives, Doss said.FHSAAFROM PAGE 14WHAT MIGHT THIS LOOK LIKE?An example of what this might look like, when implemented, has been circulated by the FHSAA for boys basketball.

They previously ran the business by appointment only from a warehouse in Ocoee. It got to the point where we were busy enough to give reason to have a retail space, Alec said. When we found this space, we loved the character and the history. And being on (Highway) 50, it has a curbside presence. The building, constructed in 1955, was the home of Walker Brothers Millworks for decades. Alec said he has driven by this building countless times since his family moved to Gotha 15 years ago. I remember driving by this building years ago and thinking it would be a cool place to have a business, Alec said. Little did I know it comes full circle. The older of the two brothers, Alec said he got into this line of work by buying estate-sale fur niture and selling it privately. He realized he appreciated the craftsmanship of quality furniture, and he encouraged Nick to join him. The business partners, who are Olympia High School graduates, began working for estate companies and private firms that wanted to clear out their furniture, and their company has evolved into buying out Central Florida estates and model homes. They sometimes find overstock from big-box stores, as well. Rhino Dcor has started a want list for customers searching for that specific piece, which helps Nick and Alec act as personal shoppers for their clients. Their showroom includes fur niture and dcor for living and dining rooms, bedrooms, patios and offices. Merchandise is photographed and listed on the website, and the owners said their inventory moves quickly. If someone is interested in selling items, they can email the Billingses with a description and photos. The brothers prefer to deal with multiple pieces at a time instead of individual items, they said. A third brother, Derrick, helps occasionally by assisting in mov ing jobs. Alec and Nick said their business was inspired by their par ents, Rick and April Billings, who are Winter Garden residents. Their mother is an interior decorator, and their father, a photographer, has always owned his own businesses. The name Rhino Dcor is a nod to their father, who has always lived by the rhino mantra and has a collection of close to 2,000 decorative rhinoceroses. He even gave several of the smaller ones to his sons to place around the store. When Rick worked for Canon and Kodak, he handed out copies of the book Rhinoceros Success when he attended speaking conEclectic designsCONTINUED FROM PAGE 21I remember driving by this building years ago and thinking it would be a cool place to have a business. Little did I know it comes full circle. Alec Billings Amy QuesinberryIn addition to many large furniture pieces for the living room and dining room, Rhino Dcor has many decorative items for the home.ventions. The premise of the book is to take charge and have the life you want. Alec said he has read the small paper back multiple times to motivate him. Both par ents have been beneficial to their business, the brothers said. Mom is the secret weapon for us, Alec said. Its huge to have a mom thats a designer. This has become her little play ground.
