Recognizing this fact, Winter Garden resident Patty Myers founded a nonprofit named Building Pathways. The nonprof its mission is to provide individuals with special needs hands-on training that can get them ready for life on their own in the future. Myers, the director of Building Pathways and the former principal of First Hope a program she initiated at The First Academy in Orlando that also helps children with special needs just launched the nonprofit in June. But, being the mother of a 16-year-old with autism, it had been her long-held goal to create a valuable resource in the West Orange area for individuals who might need that extra push and guidance to make it on their own.

WEST ORANGE TIMES & OBSERVER | THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2018 3 When children walk into Larrys Barber Shop for their first haircut, three things are guar anteed: They get their picture taken and can have it permanently taped onto the red-brick wall, they receive an official Graduation to Manhood certificate from Larry himself, and they get the cut on the house. This is the way it has been for five decades ever since Larry Herrington started working at the barber shop in the Ocoee Shopping Center, where Silver Star and Ocoee Apopka roads meet. The shopping center is one of the citys oldest, and tucked somewhere near the middle is the nondescript storefront where Her rington has spent his days since graduating from barber college in 1968. He initially worked at the shop, renting a barbers chair from the owner, Willy Williams. When Williams retired about five years later, Herrington bought the establishment from him, renamed it and has operated it ever since. Ocoee certainly was a smaller city 50 years ago, with a population of roughly 2,000. When I came here in 1968, a kid could walk by and Id know who he was, Herrington said. A dog could walk by and I could tell you whose dog it was. When I came in here, Ocoee had four policemen (and) a volunteer fire department, he said. I used to know everybody, and now I dont. Besides Herringtons shop, the shopping strip boasted a Boogarts grocery store, Pounds Pharmacy, several clothing businesses, a jeweler, restaurant, laundromat and hardware store. Me and the laundromat are the only survivors, the barber said. Ive seen this strip build up, and Ive seen it go down. And Ive seen it built up again. When Herrington got his start in the business, he said, costs were minimal: A dollar and a quarter for a regular haircut and a dollar and a half for a flat top. And if you couldnt cut a flat top at that time, you were out of business. Ive seen (hairstyles) go from flat tops, to hair over the ears, to flat top ponytails. And now its back to regular haircuts and flattops. Those remain his specialty, and he said he has no desire to learn the different trending hairstyles. I dont need to keep up with that anymore, he said.FROM SALUTES TO SCISSORSHerrington, the oldest of seven children, was 11 when his family moved to Winter Garden from Alabama. After attending Lakev iew High School, he joined the military like his father and four of his brothers. Two years later, in 1967, he returned to Florida and attended a barber college in Orlando under the G.I. Bill. The owner was Jack Carter Sr., whose son, Jack Jr., currently operates a barber shop in Winter Garden. He completed his schooling in nine months and began what would become his lifelong career at the Ocoee barber shop.CUTTING FOR GENERATIONSThere are families who wouldnt go anywhere else for their hair cuts, some for four and five generations, including the family of Ocoee resident R.V. Henry. A girl called me from New York and said, Larry this is soand-so, and we have a set of twin boys, and we want to come down in June and have you cut their hair. That makes six generations (on their fathers side), four on her side. One of his first customers, he said, was Lowell Boggs, who was a teacher. He still is cutting Boggs hair 50 years later. He could be considered the Ocoee politicians barber, as he has used his clippers on former mayors Lester Dabbs and Scott Vandergrift and current Mayor Rusty Johnson. Its always been like a family, Herrington said. First thing I ask new customers, Where are you from? How many kids do you have? What kind of job do you do? And then we go from there. Thats how I treat these people like family. No one makes an appointment; they simply show up. As Herrington cuts, the bar ber and his customers talk shop, and the conversation, more times than not, gravitates toward local history. We talk about the old times and what it looked like then, he said. Mr. (Hartle) Bowness once said, I used to sit outside my place at night, when everything was flat from here to Winter Garden, and I used to stay open until I saw the last light go out in Winter Garden because they might buy 15 cents worth of gas. The east wall of the barber shop is a testament to Herringtons popularity. Taped to the redbrick wall are probably 100 faded yellow Polaroid photographs of first haircuts. Many of the young clients, such as Wilson Swope and the Sanders triplets, are teenagers and young men today. When Polaroid cameras gave way to digital cameras and smart phones, many mothers printed their own photos and brought them back for Herringtons wall of fame. Framing the pictures are mounted fish, an old equestrian harness and other novelties given to him by customers. Herrington is 75 and cant stand as much as he used to, but he still manages to make a living at his barber shop, where he continues giving his customers a decent haircut, friendship and conver sation. I have a place to come to and a place to talk, he said. I have guys who come in for a few minutes and talk, I have guys come in and play some music for a little bit. Its changed because we used to sit around and talk about fishing and hunting and girls and now we talk about surgeries and doctors appointments. Several guitars sit in the back room, ready to be strummed at a moments notice when a friend walks through the door and wants to play a few tunes. If you love what youre doing, youll never work a day in your life, Herrington said. And thats how it is with this shop.A GOLDEN CELEBRATIONTo mark the milestone, Her ringtons wife, Martha, and two daughters, Sandy Hendrix and Amy Lindsey, surprised him with a party at the shop. On Saturday, June 23, the bar ber opened his doors that morning and started cutting hair. A little later, he noticed that many of those same customers were returning, as were dozens of other clients and their families. Hendrix said he was over whelmed by the turnout, which included his pastor, Jeff Prichard, as well as Ocoee Commissioner Rosemary Wilsen and Mayor Johnson, who presented a proclamation. Its been a great 50 years, Herrington said. And Ive enjoyed every minute of it. I just love people. After standing behind a barber chair for so long, many people would be discussing retirement. But not Herrington. Not yet. When I walk in here and its not fun anymore, then its time to go home, he said. 276531 At Growing Together Pediatrics we offer comprehensive medical care for infants, children and adolescents.

4 WEST ORANGE TIMES & OBSERVER | THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2018 The gourmet burger chain puts an emphasis on quality and uses only the freshest ingredients, said Kaley Maloy, who is the marketing director for BurgerFi franchisee Adino, LLC. The quality of our ingredients speaks for itself, Maloy said. BurgerFi only uses the top 1% of beef all-natural, no hormones, no antibiotics and you can taste that in the burger. Maloy said Adino, LLC has local ties to Winter Garden. Those ties played a role in establishing a location on Plant Street. The franchisee, the director of operations and myself, were all locals to Winter Garden, Maloy said. We all knew the value a delicious burger joint would have on the community. We needed a good burger place. There really isnt a decent burger joint (in town), and now theres going to be, and that was a huge part about what made us decide to make this location happen. BurgerFi offers a menu that would please any palate, from classic cheeseburgers to fresh veggie burgers. Ordering a burger green style replaces the bun with a lettuce wrap. The menu also offers hot dogs, shakes, custard concretes and beer and wine, Maloy said. One of the other things about our menu items that sets us apart is that we have vegetarian and vegan options in addition to having allnatural beef patties, Maloy said. You can get any burger green style. Theres something for everybody at BurgerFi. Adino area developer Eric Koeser said although some members of the community are concerned about having a chain on Plant Street, the community response has supportive overall. (The support) has been amazing a lot of positive feedback, Koeser said. There are limited options for our type of product. I think a lot of people around here are more conscious of the quality and the type of food that theyre eating. Its important to us to be able to bring our product and our brand to the community. Thats what truly excites us the most.

And right now, hes not able to drive, but were work ing on it. So that concern kind of spread to other kids, too, who I know are in the same boat. The funding generally stops once they pass 22, and theres not much help out there. Few programs say, Oh, let me take your son or daughter and help them with these skills, she said. So this kind of program was so needed. Especially out west here. According to theCenters for Disease Control and Prevention findings from 2006 to 2008, about one in 59 children are diagnosed with autism and one in six U.S. children had a developmental disability. The thought of what happens to all those children after they graduate high school and leave home is what motivated Myers to create Building Pathways. Kids with disabilities can go to school until theyre 22, she said. A lot of parents have them go until theyre 22 because they dont have another option. So programs like mine could be another option. They could leave school at 18 and then do this instead. And this could be that transitional stage for them that really helps them if they ever need to live on their own. Thats the goal: having them live on their own and get a great job, Myers said. There are a lot of companies willing to give jobs to kids with disabilities. And if a kid likes to bag, and thats his thing, I'm all for it. But I want to find them jobs that they will be happy with. To help them prepare for a job and future independence, Myers runs both a summer camp and day program alongside her assistant director, Jennifer Pinckney. The programs mostly focus on teaching the participants the etiquette and skills they might need in a work environment or social setting. Thats our whole goal here, she said. To get them to be independent and have them not need us anymore. A lot of adults with disabilities who are in their 40s and 50s still live with their elderly parents. On Mondays, the children decide on a meal to cookon Thursdayfor their group lunch and create a grocery list. Myers then takes them to Publix to pur chase the needed ingredients. While grocery shopping, Myers guides them on how to choose what to buy according to prefer ence and price. We also try to help them figureout what are good bargains, she said. You know, we tell them dont just pick any cheese, ask yourself whether thats the cheese you want and compare the price to whats on sale. You know, all those little things that arent really taught to any of us because we just figure it out. On Tuesdays andWednesdays, Myers takes the children to a movie theater. Going to the mov ies is still a teaching opportunity, she said, as theater settings call for certain behaviors. There are socialskills involved in going to the movies, she said. Theres just so much that needs to be taught that we dont even think about. If you go to a movie theater, you might have to wait in line or ask a question before buying your tickets, so you teach them that that money exchange has to happen first and then you find a seat. There are so many things that we take for granted that we just do without think ing but, generally speaking, some of them dont pick up on social cues. On Fridays, Myers usually takes them on a field trip, such as SeaWorld, Gatorland or a bowling alley. And every week focuses on a different virtue that she emphasizes and discusses in daily devotionals with the children, such as kindness, patience or self-con trol. Ive always been the type who likes to serve and help via psychology, said Myers, who has a bachelors degree in psychology and is board-certified as an assistant behavioral analyst. But when my son was diagnosed, I think that just took it to another level. Ive noticed that people dont see their value sometimes. They look at them and become fearful but theyre trying to communicate with us, and sometimes theyre unable to express themselves as we do. But a lot of people know me in the disability community, and they know I dont give up.

WEST ORANGE TIMES & OBSERVER | THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2018 5 It has served as an auto shop, a storage unit and more. And now, the building at101 W. McKey St. is home to Ocoees brand-new nano brewery Toll Road Brewing Company. The brewery officially opened June 27 after having been in the works since January 2017. Coowners David and Donna Strick land, Russ Balazs and mother Nancy Balazs and Duane and Melissa Morin have been work ing tirelessly to bring their vision to life. David and I have been brewing for about 13 years; Russells been with us for the last few, Duane Morin said. As home brewers, we were like, I wonder what itd be like to own a brewery. My sister lives in San Diego, and I was visiting her every year and we were going to the huge breweries and the smaller breweries. I started visiting those smaller breweries and realized if you budget right you can open a smaller one. I came back, talked to them and said, What do you think? And we made a run for it. As microbreweries and tap rooms become popular places to gather, the group knew it was time to combine their passion for brewing with business. Our initial idea was a small neighborhood brewery, more hyperlocal, David Strickland said. Part of the fun and experience of craft breweries in gen eral is going and being in the place where the beer is made, so thats kind of what were trying to achieve. The group initially hoped to have Toll Road open around the time of Ocoee Founders Day last year but had experienced a few setbacks. The brewery is open now, but the owners currently arent able to serve their own beer on tap because the glycol chiller necessary to the process has been delayed in delivery. Everyones been incredibly understanding about our beer not being on tap, Morin said. We didn't want to disappoint any body that came in expecting it. Getting (the chiller) installed and up and running will take a little bit longer, and well be able to fire up the big system. Until then well be brewing on our small, half-barrel system. In the meantime, Strickland said, they are trying to offer many Florida-centric beers and feature breweries from around the state in various styles. From ciders and lagers to ales and IPAs and even wine they aim to offer something for everyone. The menu rotates often, so there is always a different beer on tap. We have a diverse tap list, so theres something for everyone, he said. Were definitely trying to get interesting stuff but stay local so when people come in they're supporting Florida locally, as well as the beer scene around Orlando. Thus far, they agree that com munity response has been great and they appreciate the support and suggestions theyve received. The ultimate goal is to get the brewery up and running to the point where theyre able to work there full time doing what they love. Its been awesome hearing other peoples voices, Russ Balazs said. When they actually see the place done, the reactions on their faces is awesome. Morin added that while its tough to work their current day jobs and then come work the brewery, its all worth it for the passion of brewing and mutual love of beer. Were still trying to work that out and give each other some free time where someone doesn't have to be here, he said. Youve got to do what you've got to do to get the business open and hopefully itll thrive. Its all about the beer. 278449 1$2,500 minimum deposit is required for opening the Money Market Account.

When he was 2 years old, his father played some music from an iPad, and Caleb started moving. From there, the rest is history. I just went o dancing, Caleb said. My dad bought me an iPad, and my dad put on music on my iPad, and I just started dancing. Today, the 7-year-old dancer regularly moonwalks, shues and spins onstage impersonating the late popmusic legend Michael Jackson at various events.ERIC GUTIERREZSTAFF WRITERWinter Gardens I just went o dancing.

(His songs) have a cool beat. You get it? Beat. It. They have a cool beat. Beat It. Brewer taught himself how to dance by watching YouTube videos. Although he enjoys dancing to the King of Pop, he got his start dancing to a different song, his mother Christine said. Nobody really taught him (how to dance), Christine said. I saw him dancing to Gangnam Style at age 2, and I said, Wow, youre on the beat. He just went to town and got better and better. He just watches YouTube (videos). Christine said Caleb discov ered Michael Jackson through YouTube and started dancing to his music soon thereafter. He loved it so much that she bought him clothes that match Michael Jacksons style for Halloween one year, and he started dancing in them. Eventually, they bought him more clothes to dance in that match Jacksons style. Today, Calebs grandmother makes his dancing outfits. I was watching YouTube videos for Michael Jackson and he said, Mom, I can do that, Christine said. He showed me (he could) then I got him clothes (like Michael Jacksons) and he got better and better after that. Calebs father, Albert, said Caleb loves performing onstage and watching the reactions of the audience. Hes not intimidated by big crowds the bigger crowd, the better, Albert said. What joys me about my son dancing is watching people have the joy of watching him dance. Thats my joy when I see people smile and laugh and just love it. You can tell their heart is just pouring out for the love of him. In November 2017, Caleb auditioned for Americas Got talent. The Brewers waited in line for nine hours with about 9,000 other hopefuls. The audition itself lasted 90 seconds. Unfor tunately, Caleb was not selected. They like (performers with) a sad story, Albert said. They like something that will move your heart. They want a story. Its a TV show. Its about stories. Its about the heart, and all we had was he loves to dance. He didnt have any luck with Americas Got Talent, but he will be performing in this years Florida Kids and Family Expo at the Orange County Convention Center fromAug. 18 to 19. Caleb has performed in many locations locally, around the country and in other parts of the world. Hes danced as a street performer on Fremont Street in Las Vegas and at Pier 60 in Clear water Beach. Hes even performed in Dubai and in the Philippines. My favorite performance is when I did it at Las Vegas, Caleb said. At Las Vegas, I got a lot of money. He just danced on the street, and (people) tipped him, Christine said. People were just loving him so much that they kept tipping him. In terms of local performances, Christine said Caleb often gets invited to dance at assisted-living facilities. He likes performing over there, Christine said. They cry (from) so much joy. I like making old people happy, Caleb said. The one thing I dont like is when I dance at the assisted-living (facility), I shake hands when them and then they kiss me. Caleb said he plans to keep dancing as he grows up. And he hopes to get another chance with Americas Got Talent. The one thing that I want to do is go on Americas Got Talent so I can get money and buy a new house and be famous, he said.

THESE OLD TIMES WEST ORANGE HISTORYFROM THE WINTER GARDEN HERITAGE FOUNDATION FROM THE ARCHIVESNewcomers are surprised to discover that Oakland was once a major hub of agriculture and railroading in West Orange County. This photograph was taken a century ago at the A.J. Willis general store in Oakland, when the village center featured a railroad depot and other stores facing the town square known as Grace Park. The store was located at the southwest corner of what later became West Petris Avenue and Tubb Street. Constructed in 1912 after a re destroyed the downtown business district, the building housing Willis store was demolished in 2000. In this setting, F.F. Cross and G.W. Cooley examine a pair of womens highheeled shoes. The store also housed the post oce at this time. THROWBACK THURSDAYJULY 6, 1972 One of the most popular hangouts in Winter Garden was, at one time, the Dizzy Whirl, the restaurant with the recognizable A-frame structure. Located on West Colonial Drive, the eatery oered 99cent burger baskets and $1.29 dinners. Many local residents can recall work ing their rst job there as teenagers. The restaurant, now demolished, was located across the highway from Maryland Fried Chicken. The mission of the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation is to preserve the heritage and architecture of Winter Garden while creating new cultural experiences. The Foundation also preserves the material culture of West Orange County, using it to educate the areas youth on the communitys rich history. 40 years agoReeves Barber Shop features reg ular cuts for $2.50, medium cuts for $3 to $5 and full-style cuts for $7.50 by stylists Ed Reeves and Earl Brigham.

In a baseball coaching career that has spanned three decades, Jay Welsh has seen some things. With that said, the way in which his Winter Garden Squeeze won their final game of the first half of this season a 19-9 victory over the Sanford River Rats July 5 which saw the Squeeze score 15 runs in the final three innings figures to stick out for some time. That was one of the most bizarre games Ive been involved in in 30 years of coaching, Welsh said. Indeed, Welsh and company are not likely to forget a game dur ing which the Squeeze (10-12-1) scored seven runs in the eighth inning without recording a hit. Winter Garden had trailed 9-4 through six innings, before scor ing one run in the seventh and seven runs, a piece, in the eighth and ninth innings. The win capped a first half that saw the team struggle mightily out of the gate the Squeeze lost seven consecutive games after winning their season opener and rebound by going 9-5-1 since snapping that losing streak. Keying the turnaround has been the teams bats. The offense has been great this year, its been super for the first half its just our pitching has been really suspect this year, Welsh said. Statistically, Winter Garden is middle-of-the-pack in the Flor ida Collegiate Summer League in several categories the Squeeze are fourth in the league in hits SPORTSJULY 12, 2018 West Orange junior defensive lineman Lexan Coleman shines at USA Football camp in Ohio.

Dillard St. Unit 101/103 Winter Garden, FL 34787 (407) 410-8998Follow us on (177 in 23 games) and third in the league in doubles (32), home runs (10) and batting average (.251). The pitching numbers are a little less friendly Win ter Garden has, for instance, the second-highest ERA in the Florida League (5.71). Beyond the statistics, though, Welsh says he has a club with players who are engaged each day even when the rains that come with a Florida summer bump games. As far as individual success, Aaron Anderson a sophomore first baseman from Flagler College leads the entire Florida League in batting average (.427) and hits (32), to go along with six extra-base hits and 14 RBIs. Hes a coachs dream, Welsh said of Anderson. He is the first kid at the ballpark and the last kid to leave and oh, by the way, he leads the league in hitting. Where the team has found some success on the mound has been in a pair of familiar faces from years past returning pitchers Ryan Ashworth and Ryan Welsh. Through 21.1 innings of action this season, Ashworth (Flagler College) has the fourth-best ERA (2.53) in the league and two wins. Welsh, who has been coming out of the bullpen, has 14 strikeouts in nine innings to his credit. Winter Garden finds itself tied with Winter Park for third place at the seasons halfway point, trailing Leesburg (185) and DeLand (12-11) two teams that the Squeeze will play a combined six games against between July 9 and July 17. This next week is a big week for us, Welsh said. If we have a good showing against them, we have an opportunity to make up some ground head-to-head. Of course, before the Squeeze can make up ground on either the Lightning or the Suns, theyll have to first beat them through seven attempts, they have yet to beat either team. Thats got to change this week, Welsh said. What was it like to be recognized at the USA Football camp? It was amazing, with all the hard work I put in. Last year, I didnt do so good (at the camp), but this year I just pushed forward and got better. I just tried my hardest every play. What have you learned by participating in the camps? Ive learned different techniques and how to do stuff better the stance, what to read from the offensive lineman, and to shuffle down with them when they go down the line. What was your favorite memory from West Oranges 2017 season? My favorite memory was running down the field and chasing a guy down 40 yards for a tackle. Who were upperclassmen teammates who you looked up to as an underclassman? Tre Jackson and Julian Pittman. I just like their leadership and I always had a connection with them. SPORTS SPOTLIGHTAfter a strong showing at a local camp at Celebration High earlier this year, West Orange rising junior Lexan Coleman was invited to a USA Football camp at in Canton, Ohio, to hone his skills. Coleman did so well, in fact, that he was recognized as the Defensive Lineman MVP for the event July 1. SPONSORED BY MARKS FLOORSLexan Coleman THE BASICSAge: 17 School: West Orange Year: Junior Position: Defensive lineman Height: 5-foot-9 Weight: 220 lbs. Hometown: Winter GardenWhich game are you looking forward to the most this fall? Windermere. Ive got friends on the team and its a rivalry. What was your favorite memory from playing youth football for the Ocoee Car dinals? Going to Nationals and getting to skip a couple days of school while playing a sport I love. How do you approach each play, pre-snap? I always have two moves in my head. If one doesnt work, Ill do the other one, and I approach every play like its the last play of the season all-out. Are there any professional players you try to emulate? Fletcher Cox (Philadelphia Eagles) and J.J. Watt (Houston Texans). What is your favorite video game? Right now, it would be NBA 2K and maybe Fortnite. My favorite team to play with in NBA 2K is the Philadelphia 76ers, because my family is from Philly. What do you want to do when you get older? To work in the medical field with athletes. Where would you go if you could travel any where? Probably overseas, London. I like the way the culture is.
