Come grow with us!Friends of Les Feldick 280909 DANIELLE HENDRIXBLACK TIE EDITORWith the Aug. 28 primary election just weeks away, the West Orange Chamber of Commerce is gear ing up for an event that will allow participants to meet candidates. WOCC has hosted its Hob Nob and Straw Poll every two years for decades, said chamber President Stina DUva. The event, which takes place Thursday, Aug. 2, serves as a way for guests to get to know the candidates they will be voting for in the upcoming primary and general elections. We really do want our business members and the greater West Orange community to know who the candidates are and to get to meet them face to face, DUva said. Most people dont get invit ed to a fundraiser or have oppor tunities to meet them all, so this puts them all in one big room so you have an opportunity to talk to them and ask questions like, Why are you running? or Why do you think youre the best candidate for this seat? Attendees also will cast votes during the straw poll. Everyone, including the candidates and their campaign workers, receives a ballot. Whether Democrat, Republican or no party affiliation, each person gets one vote. WOCCs straw poll uses official tabulation equipment from the Supervisor of Elections office, and its ballot is custom-made, because it also includes positions that arent necessarily located directly in the West Orange area. (For example) we include County Commission District 4 on there because county commissioners vote on every issue, whether its in their district or not, DUva said. Those votes count on matters that happen in West Orange. Whether or not they truly represent our particular districts, we care and we get those on the ballots.GABBY BAQUERONEWS EDITOROcoee commissioners have authorized the installation of two red-light cameras to the intersection of Clarke and Silver Star roads. The recommendation to add two more cameras to Clarke and Silver Star roads going north and south stemmed from the results of a survey conducted by Arizona-based American Traffic Solutions. American Traffic Solutions the same company that sold the cameras to Ocoee surveyed potential locations for the addition of possible red-light cameras using traffic data for these locations, according to city documents. The cameras also are equipped with license plate-reading technology and will cost the city $4,250 per camera, per month, to operate, but the monthly costs are paid for by violation fines, according to city documents. The approval of the new cameras came during the July 17 commission meeting and sparked discussion about the effectiveness of traffic cameras in preventing crashes among the commissioners. Ocoee Commissioner George Oliver agreed the traffic cameras likely modified driving habits but expressed doubt regarding their role in preventing crashes and asked to see traffic studies that show how many crashes have occurred at intersections with traffic cameras and compare it to previous years. A red-light camera has never stopped an accident at all, Oliver said. You show me one red-light camera thats stopped an accident. It may help as far as driving habits are concerned I agree with that but as for stopping an accident; it will never stop an accident. Ocoee Mayor Rusty Johnson disagreed with Oliver and emphasized the cameras likely reduce the number of crashes that occur at a given intersection. Its not about how many crashes weve had, but how many weve kept from happening, Johnson said. (Drivers) dont stop. And we dont have (traffic cameras) at every (intersection) and were not going to have them at every (intersection). According to 2017 data for the four intersections with installed cameras, there were 19 crashes at Clarke/White, 11 crashes at Clarke/A.D. Mims, 10 crashes at Ocoee-Apopka/Silver Star Road and 37 crashes at the Silver Star/ Clarke intersection. The West Orange Times & Observer requested crash data for the years before the cameras were installed, but the department said such data was no longer available because of a change in CAD systems. Oliver also raised questions about the potential ubiquity of traffic cameras; adverse impact on drivers who cannot afford to pay the $158 fine; and revenue the city receives from the fines. The money received from fines are split between the state and the city. I agree it does modify behav ior but again, I have to look at the economic side of it as well for the responsible people who make minor mistakes and have to pay for them but may not be able to afford these things, Oliver said. Johnson said Ocoee has used traffic cameras for years and only has a few installed. The city installed its first red-light cam eras in 2009 and currently has four active camera-equipped intersections, according to Ocoee Police Lt. Scott Nylander. Those intersections are southbound Clarke/White Road, northbound Clarke/A.D. Mims Road, west and eastbound Silver Star/Clarke Road and northbound Ocoee-Apopka/Silver Star Road. Three cameras for merly installed at the intersections of Maguire Road/Colonial Drive and Blackwood Avenue/ Colonial Drive were removed in June 2015 because of the State Road 50 widening project, Nylander said.PARTICIPANTSU.S. REP., DISTRICT 10 Val DemingsSTATE REP., DISTRICT 44 Margaret Melanie Gold Geraldine Thompson ATTORNEY GENERAL OF FLORIDA Ashley MoodyFLORIDA COMMISSIONER OF AGRICULTURE AND CONSUMER SERVICES Matt Caldwell Denise GrimsleyORANGE COUNTY MAYOR Pete Clarke Jerry Demings Rob PanepintoORANGE COUNTY SHERIFF Jose Joe Lopez John MinaORANGE COUNTY COMMISSION, DISTRICT 2 Mark Allen Byrd Christine MooreO.C.

4 WEST ORANGE TIMES & OBSERVER | THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 2018 AMY QUESINBERRYCOMMUNITY EDITORPrincess just wanted to get a closer look at Tara; the steps leading up to the famous plantation backdrop were too enticing to the year-old angus heifer. It didnt matter if she was in the middle of the show ring, in front of judges at a national competition. She refused to stand still for them instead, she dragged her handler up the steps for a closer look. Princess had a little bit of an attitude because she was a princess, said Amy Stotler, who was 20 when she showed the cow at the Gone with the Windthemed National Junior Angus Show in 1997. When you show in a national ring, its pretty big, a lot bigger than we were used to, so she wanted to see everything. Princess wasnt done explor ing, though. The 10 Miss Angus queens gathered off to the side had caught her eye, and she was curious. She stopped a minute and saw those queens sitting under the pergola, and that was it, Stotler said. She ran over to see what they were doing. Its very hard to stop (cows) when they have a mind of their own. The queens werent hurt; they were just a little startled that we were coming under there with them. We didnt place very well, she added, laughing. Cattle have been part of the Winter Garden residents life for as long as she can remember. Her father, Rick, led the FFA animalscience program at West Orange High School for more than 25 years, and she grew up attending cattle shows with her family. As a child, you know how kids have a sport and stuff? I showed cows, and I was good at it, she said. Like travel ball, we did cow shows. Stotler said some of her fondest memories as a child were two NJAA shows, in Louisville and Perry. Some families go on vacations; we went to cow shows, and I wouldnt change it for the world, Stotler said. She showed her first steer at the Central Florida Fair as a member of West Orange Highs FFA program. The thing with steers is you show them one time, and then you were done, she said. You sold it. You spend a whole year on a project, and you only show it once. If Im spending that kind of time, I wanted to show more than once. So thats when I bought registered angus. I purchased with my money made from steers. I purchased the first two of our herd. She no longer competes in the arena, but some of her animals are leased to Ocoee High School students so they can participate. Some people dont have the money to be able to buy their own, Stotler said. This way, my animals are made a little friendlier and a kid gets the opportunity to show. She never forgot her FFA experiences and the friendships. And thats why I like giving back today, she said. I like giv ing to kids today. I got so much out of the program then, and I want kids to get something out of it today.A FAMILY BUSINESSSince 1994, the father-daughter ranchers have co-owned Lazy A Angus, a cow-calf operation that sells the calves to other herds and sells the steers typically for their beef. The bulls are used for reproduction. They keep their 60 cows in pastures in Groveland and on East Plant Street, in Winter Garden. How do they determine which of the males remain bulls and which become castrated steers? We choose steers a lot of time depending on age of when they are born, she said. They need to be born a certain time of year in order to be finished at the time of the fair. A lot of the decisionmaking is looks how the animal is put together. If we think we have one that is the right age and looks good, we will steer him. If we dont steer them, some people buy our bulls to use in their herd, she said. And its based on looks, as well. If you have a jamup (good-looking) bull calf and you think he will produce quality calves, you sell him to someone who has cows. Because they rarely keep the boys, Stotler and her father dont give them names. The exceptions are Midland, a purebred registered angus that lives in Groveland, and Jack and Big Boy, the kings of the Winter Garden herd.BOVINE PROFILESStotler talks about her cows as if shes referring to her closest girlfriends. Rose is 5 years old and has had three calves, one solid black and two with white blazes on their faces.She loves oranges, hay and people. Char is 9, and although shes not the bully of the herd, she makes her presence known.Shes one of the blonde cows; all but one calf has been black. She loves oranges and thinks everyone who comes to the ranch is there to see her. She doesnt play well with others. Joy is the daughter of Jacey. She is the third calf Jacey, another blonde cow, has had and the first black one. She loves food, oranges and people. Stotler said about 75% of the cows have names, and some are named after the rich and famous. Theres Audrey, as in Hepburn, and then theres Vanna, who was the first white cow. (Get it? Stotler asked.) At 16, Jenny is the oldest; Stotler calls her the Queen Bee. She is special because she is the daughter of Maxie, the first heifer calf born on the Lazy A Angus Ranch. Maxie was also a Grand Champion.FIELD OF FRIENDSSome people turn on the television. Others read a book. When Stotler, now 40, wants to relax, she grabs a folding chair and a bag of sliced oranges and heads to the cow pasture. I just like hanging out with my cows, she said. Its just relaxing. I like to do it later in the evening when the sun is going down. I sit far enough away so I dont disturb them, but my friendly girls will come up and check me out. Its just nice to take in the orange of the setting sun and relax after a long day. Its my happy place. There probably arent many people who will stage a celebratory photo shoot for their cows birthday, but Stotler has. Stella was pregnant and turning 9, so this became a maternity shoot, as well. Stotlers photographer friend, Amanda Newman, captured the images of Stella, wearing a flow er-adorned, six-foot-long burlap ribbon, while Stotler sat nearby, wearing multiple strands of pearls and tossing colorful confetti. Beside Stella was a chalkboard that read: Whoever said money couldnt buy happiness hasnt owned a show cow before. The four-legged model cooper ated, Stotler said, because she had a supply of oranges. Stotler always makes sure she has oranges for her cows. She knows to watch her back when the pushier ones are near. They dont hurt her, but a nudge from a 1,300-pound cow can certainly prove whos boss. The group in Groveland is fed every morning, and the Winter Garden herd chows down in the evenings. Stotler and her dad put out 150 pounds at each pasture every day. After they have had their meal, the selfies begin. She has perfected the process all it takes is a handful of oranges, the multi-photo burst mode on her phone camera and a willing ness to get a fist full of cow slobber. She has achieved Facebook popularity with her cow photos each designed to show off Stotlers smile and the cows per sonalities. When I post photos of my cows, I think it shows another side of the cattle industry, she said. Life has come full circle for Stotler. As a student, she frequented the Central Florida Fair grounds to show her animals. Today, she works in the finance department. But every spring, she gets to relive a bit of those glory years. I like March and April, she said. March is the fair, and weve worked so hard to put it together, and I love seeing the kids show their animals. April I love because its slammed with concerts and festivals, so its a different kind of busy, Stotler said. The best thing I can say about my job is its never, ever boring.

Its been at 4.25 for the last eight years, Zielonka said. The extra 0.25 would generate approximately $800,000 for the city and would cost approximately $25 a year for every $100,000 of taxable value for the homeowners. She added that staff will have a better idea of what the proposed millage rate should be at the later budget hear ings. City Manager Mike Bollhoeffer said the proposed increase could help cov er costs related to school safety. With the new laws, we now have to put officers in all of the school, which is going to drive up the costs, he said. Commissioners approved unanimously PRMG to perform rate studies for water, sewer and stormwater to determine if the citys current rates are enough to sufficiently fund future utility and stormwater infrastructure projects. PRMG is proposing to do the water/sewer rate study for $39,000 and the stormwater rate study for $15,000. While analyzing everything, weve noticed the water rates havent increased in 15 years, Zielonka said. Wed like to have a rate study done to ensure that our future infrastructure costs are going to be covered by the future rates, and wed also like to look at the stormwater rate study too. Finally, commissioners approved unanimously a special event request for Crooked Can Brewerys Oktober fest celebration from Oct. 19 to 21. An agenda item pertaining to a change order with L7 Construction was pulled, because city staff found an alternative solution to the issue related to the change order, according to Bollhoeffer.

Come October, a new 8,200-square-foot gym called Hardcore Fitness that specializes in boot-camp group training will open in the Beulah Commerce Center. t The gym is co-owned by a couple Nick Buzetti and Alexis Linares and it will be HCFs second location in Central Florida. The gyms concept originated in California. Im from California, and my best friend is the one who started Hardcore Fitness back in Califor nia about nine years ago, Buzetti said. There are about 11 locations throughout southern Califor nia. So I worked in the fitness industry for a really long time, and thats actually what brought me to Florida with my previous job. I was working at a 24 Hour Fitness when I met Alexis. The pair soon quit their jobs and opened their first location in Winter Park three years ago, Buzetti said. They have since watched it grow into a success, with more than 600 members to date. They hope to see the same success in Winter Garden. The gym, which will be open seven days a week, offers one-hour group training classes every day with two options to choose from: boot camp or fight camp. The boot camp mostly features resistance training and weightlifting, while the fight camp is a more cardio-based boxing class during which participants wear heartrate monitors. Although the gym primarily focuses on group training, its workout methodology is akin to a personal workout routine, Linares said. Were different because we do a lot of isolated muscle training, which you dont normally see in a group setting, she said. So we kind of take a commercial gym setting and put it into a group style. We do leg day, back day, shoulder day, chest day we actually target muscles during our group training and focus on aesthetics, sculpting, trimming and toning. The gym also offers its members an optional 60-day Fat Loss Challenge for those aiming for a change in their health and appearance. Linares and Buzetti believe their gyms approach to fitness brings its members the results they want, and the culture and positive atmosphere is something that sets them apart from other gyms. A lot of the group-training facilities weve visited focus on full-body workouts every single day, Linares said. What really makes us stand out is we really do a lot of weightlifting in a group setting. So you will be doing heavy squats, bench presses, and we have people aged from their high teens to their 60s and theyre all work ing out right next to each other. So every workout is scalable. ... Were all just one big sweaty family.GABBY BAQUERONEWS EDITOROrange County hosted a commu nity meeting regarding a rezoning request for a 34.60-acre site in Horizon West to be located south of Flamingo Crossings Boulevard and east of Avalon Road. The meeting took place Tuesday, July 25, at Keenes Crossing Elementary, where area residents learned more details about the applicants request. The applicant Kathy Hatt away who represents property owner Titan Western Beltway LLC, has requested the county to rezone the property from Citrus Rural District (A-1) to Planned Development (PD) to make way for a proposed 110 townhomes and 316 rental apartments. According to site plans, the proposed density of the parcel where the apartments would be con structed is 24 units per acre, and the maximum allowed density is 25 units per acre. And the proposed density for the parcel envisioned to be used for townhomes is nine units per acre, although the maximum allowed is 10 units per acre. Hattaway said the property owner has not yet selected a builder and no information about the building heights and square footage is yet available because the request is still in the initial stages of the countys permit process. Hattaway emphasized the property will adhere to the open-space requirement and the property owner is not requesting anything that differs from the Horizon West Comprehensive Plan or strict design standards. If the permit process proceeds without any delays, construction is expected to begin in 18 months, Hattaway added. Area residents at the commu nity meeting asked how many students the development might bring and what is being done to address ongoing traffic issues in the area, which they feared might be exacerbated with all the upcoming development. County officials said based on Orange County Public Schools student-generation rates, the development is expected to bring about 125 children in total: 89 from the apartment homes and 36 from the townhomes. Hattaway said the property owner also received approval from OCPS to build and agreed to pay school mitigation fees, which OCPS uses toward the cost of building new schools or renovating existing campuses. And in response to traffic con cerns, Orange County Commissioner Betsy VanderLey said about 1,000 new residents are moving into Central Florida each week, but state law prevents local gov ernments from refusing an application from a developer because of road-capacity issues.Developer proposes townhomes, apartments near Avalon RoadThe project, if approved, would include 110 townhomes and 316 apartments on a 34-acre site in Horizon West.

Just being able to draw and do art and do it so that Im making a liv ing doing it, its great. Its definitely an awesome feeling to have every thing come full circle. Smith, 47, is an illustrator, writer and art instructor at the Florida Film Academy in Winter Garden. A longtime Star Wars fan, he started drawing pictures of C3PO at age 6. At 17, after paying a visit to the Mouse, he realized he wanted to pursue art as a career. The characters and just the animation department and the stuff they (Disney) were releasing (were inspiring), Smith said. Theres a lot of Disney influence in my style as well. Its very animated. An Ohio native, Smith attended the Columbus College of Art and Design. He interned at Marvel, worked for Disney, worked on some independent comic books, did T-shirt and graphic design and worked as a tattoo artist for about three years. He also spent five years teaching illustration at a university in Ohio for five years. I love to teach, Smith said. Its great to be able to pass on what youve learned to somebody else. Today, in addition to teaching at the Florida Film Academy, Smith owns Crimson Fable Studios. He is in the final stages of releasing his own comic novella, The Chron icles of Zelaria, which is on track to release in October. Smith spent three years writing the story, creat ing the characters and illustrating pages of the comic itself. The Chronicles of Zelaria described on Smiths website, crimsonfablestudios.com is a combination of sci-fi, steampunk and fairytales. I got a lot of characters from the Grimms Fairy Tales, Smith said. There are over 250 characters that Ive developed. Some are flat-out original characters, and some of them I (got) inspiration from some of the old Grimms Fairy Tales, and then I kind of put my own spin on them. Smith said his comic is partly inspired by his daughters love of Disney princesses but with a twist. Her favorite princess was Aurora, but she also said she liked Wonder Woman, Smith said. I explained to her that Wonder Woman was a princess also. Then I started thinking that a lot of the older Disney films and even in the Grimms Fairy Tales that were really dark characters like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White, they always kind of depended on a guy to come in and save them. Smith said the princesses in The Chronicles of Zelaria stray away from the damsel-in-distress stereotype. Theyre a lot more independent a lot of them are heroic, he said.

Colonial Dr., Suite 112 ERIC GUTIERREZSTAFF WRITERThe SoBo Art Gallery will be featuring something a little different at its monthly exhibition opening Aug 2 six uniquely painted bicycle frames. Given the name SOBOcycles, each frame is painted by a local artist. Each SOBOcycle will be part of an auction that will be taking place while the bikes are on display. Dianna Duffy is a board member of the Winter Garden Art Association. She said SOBOcycles got started when Winter Garden Wheel Works owner Dennis Jones offered to donate something to the Winter Garden Art Association that would help the association raise funds for its special outreach programs. Dennis offered to donate six bicycle frames in primer coat with the idea that our artists could paint them, Duffy said. Duffy said after the painted bike frames are unveiled at the gallerys exhibition opening, each one will be moved to a local business where they will be on display for a month. We are placing the painted frames at six different merchants around town, and that includes the gallery, she said. Each one will have an information card on it that states the other locations. Each frame has been named by the artist. In addition to the SoBo Gallery, bikes will be on display at the Bar rel Room in the Plant Street Mar ket, Urban Flats, Wheel Works, Ms. Bees and Woofgang Bakery. Duffy said the SOBOcycles will hopefully drive additional business into those merchants. We always aim for things to be a win-win not just for one recipient but for everyone involved, Duffy said. The auction for the bikes will take place during the month they are on display. There will be a phone number for people to call in, place their bid, leave the name of the bicycle that theyre interested in and then we will monitor those calls daily, Duffy said. If someone is outbid, (we will) let them know so that they have a chance to keep bidding. Auction winners will receive their one-of-a-kind SOBOcycle at the end of the display period. Since its just a frame, the winners will have the option of leaving it as is and displaying it as a piece of art or completing the frame to make it a function bicycle.SOBOcycles roll into gallery The Winter Garden Art Association will be auctioning o six uniquely painted bicycle frames painted by local artists.

STEVEN RYZEWSKISENIOR SPORTS EDITORBari Musawwir can pinpoint the moment when his love affair with monster trucks began. It was when he was 6 and his mom had taken him to a show at the Pontiac Silver Dome in Detroit. I just kind of fell in love the first time I saw it, Musawwir said. That was in 1986. A lot has happened for the Cleveland native since then. A chance encounter in 2006 helped set him on the path toward his dream job of becoming a monster-truck driver. He relocated to Florida, eventually settling in Ocoee, and started a family. A proud member of the Monster Jam Triple Threat Series, Musawwir has traveled the country and the world for his sport. It has been five years since he has done a Kicking OFF A NEW Season! To advertise or subscribe email AdvertiseNow@OrangeObserver.com or call 407-656-2121 Sponsored in part by...Follow Your School...

I felt like this was a place I wanted to be, because Id have better chances to be recruited, and its a better school, education-wise. How did you think your first season at CFCA went? I enjoyed last season very well. I think it was a success, because we went to state, and we came close. Which game was the most memorable from last season? (The regional championship against) Florida Prep. We had to beat them to advance to Lakeland. Why did you decide to play football for your senior year? I wanted to add football, because I wanted to get (scholarship) offers in football and basketball. Its been fun. Im very excited for my first season. Which NBA team is your favorite? Golden State, of course. Kevin Durant is my favorite player. Hes long, he can get to the rim, and he has a nice touch from the three-point line. What are you working to improve on? Id say shooting and getting to the hoop more. Shooting inside and outside. Whats your favorite subject in school? English I love reading. Read anything good lately? Romeo and Juliet. We read the book and watched the movie as a class. What has been your favorite place you have visited because of travel ball? Atlantic City in New Jersey. They had this cool boardwalk where a lot of people from the city come out. They had the beach right behind it. What is the last movie you saw that you enjoyed? The last movie I saw was Ant-Man and the Wasp. I liked it because they call me Ant-Man here (at CFCA), kind of, because of my name they call me Ant-Man Washington. Hes a good superhero, and I liked everything about the movie. STEVEN RYZEWSKI SPORTS SPOTLIGHTAnterrius Ant Washington had quite a rst season with the CFCA boys basketball team in 2017-18. He helped the Eagles reach the FHSAA Class 2A Final Four and scored a team-high 13 points in the state seminal game. A senior this fall, Washington has also joined the CFCA football team, and he is coming o of a strong summer of travel basketball with Team M.O.A.M.SPONSORED BY MARKS FLOORSAnt Washington THE BASICSAGE: 17 SCHOOL: CFCA YEAR: Senior HEIGHT: 6-foot-5 BASKETBALL POSITION: Small forward FOOTBALL POSITIONS: Receiver, safety TRAVEL BASKETBALL TEAM: Team M.O.A.M. show in his adopted hometown of Orlando, though, making Monster Jams upcoming stop at the Amway Center in downtown Orlando Aug. 18 one the driver of the Zombie truck has had cir cled on his calendar for a while. Man, I love performing in my hometown, Musawwir said. For one, I get to sleep in my own bed. Of course, we have fans that are local here that love it, too. And my family gets to come my son is really excited to go to a show and see his dad drive.RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIMEKids typically arent allowed to operate monster trucks, so for Musawwir, the seed that was planted back in 1986 originally took him down a slightly differ ent path that of radio-controlled car and truck racing. This was something he began doing at age 11, and his success in it began to open up some doors. In 2006, Musawwir was part of an event in North Carolina at Diggers Dungeon the home of Grave Digger, Monster Jams most iconic truck. It was at that event, while Musawwir was operating an radio-controlled truck, that his abilities caught the eye of Bill Easterly, vice president of operations for Monster Jam at the time. It was kind of right place, right time and being around the right people, Musawwir said. Musawwir was asked whether he had any experience behind the wheel of a monster truck, to which he replied honestly that he did not. Then, he was asked a question he waited all his life to hear: Would you like to try it? Id driven a monster truck a million times in my mind, but when you have to actually get behind the wheel and do it, its a totally different feeling its indescribable, Musawwir said. Youre controlling something that weighs 12,000 pounds and has all this horsepower. Musawwir did not turn pro fessional for another four years following the test session in North Carolina, but it still sticks out as a turning point for his career. In 2010, he got the call to drive professionally for the first time, and his debut took place outside of the United States, in Panama. It was the first of several international shows for Musawwir. I was so nervous I couldnt eat before the show, Musawwir said.JAM LIFEIn the years since Musawwir debuted in Panama, hes become a proven driver for Monster Jam. In 2011, he was named the sports Rookie of the Year. In 2012, he won the Young Guns Shootout as part of the Monster Jam World Finals. Along the way, he has embraced the travel and long hours that come with the sport during its main season, which runs from about January to March. Away from home for 10 weeks at a time, Musawwir has had the opportunity to compete in cities across the United States and in international locations, including Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Japan and Australia. Every week, youre somewhere in a different city, Musawwir said. Its pretty awesome who would have thought Id be driving a Monster Jam truck in different countries and, through that, Id be able to see the world? In addition to being named the 2011 Rookie of the Year, Musaw wir has another important distinction within the sport he is Monster Jams first AfricanAmerican driver. I love that, because its just another way to show that the sport is diverse and to show young people that you can grow up and be whatever you set your heart to, Musawwir said. During his time with Monster Jam, Musawwir has driven three trucks. His first year, he drove El Toro Loco. For three years after that, he drove SpiderMan a popular truck, given its brand recognition. Most recently, since 2015, he has been driving Zombie a Monster Jam fan favorite for its distinct look and the arms attached to the vehicle. People love the arms, Musawwir said. The truck has arms on it, and the truck looks like its attacking anything in its way.LEAVING A LEGACYWhen Musawwir speaks about Monster Jam, his passion for the sport and its fans comes across clearly. Id really just like to be able to make an impact in every place I go with the fans, Musawwir said. I want to make it memorable for them and for them to want to become a permanent fan of Monster Jam. At home, Musawwir lives with his wife, his stepdaughter who will be heading off to college soon, and his son, who is 4. With the downtime that comes with the Monster Jam calendar, hes gravitated toward an interest in home improvement, having recently renovated the laundry room at his Ocoee residence. Although being away from his family for weeks at a time dur ing the sports busy season can be tough, Musawwir said it is balanced out by being able to be home for long stretches during the offseason. The compensa tion for a Monster Jam driver is enough to be Musawwirs sole source of income. In his eighth season with Monster Jam, Musawwir is optimistic he has another decade of driving in him. After that, he hopes to remain working within the sport as a mentor to help mold the next generation of talent. The dedication to the sport is just another reminder of the depth of passion he has for the sport. Its really surreal for me, because I was that kid asking for a drivers autograph when I got introduced to the sport, Musaw wir said. For kids and adults to ask for my autograph, its an honor. The fans are the No. 1 driving force for the entire deal without them we couldnt do what we do at the level that we do it at.

Wrong. I love football football is my game, Dobbs said with a smile, adding she grew up a Florida Gator fan in St. Petersburg. Favorite sport or not, Dobbs remarkable run of involvement in the youth baseball and softball community a career that has included service at Windermere Little League and 22 years with Florida Little League District 14 is coming to an end this fall. The administrator for District 14 the last 13 years, Dobbs is ready to hand her duties to a newly elected successor Oct. 1. Like many parents, Dobbs began volunteering when her sons began playing at Winder mere Little League in the early 1990s. But Matt Dobbs who is 36 and serving in the United States Coast Guard in Hawaii aged out of baseball in the midto late-1990s, and Nathan Dobbs who is 33 and living in Denver aged out around the turn of the century. Everything after that, then, has been for the betterment of the community. Im a very active person, and I like to be involved, Dobbs said. I felt like this was a good way to give back to the community I actually enjoyed it. It was pretty easy to do, and I enjoyed it, so I kept on doing it. Dobbs has been on the Windermere Little League Board of Directors, served as WLLs vice president and been an asssistant administrator for District 14, all before she took on her current role. As the district administrator, she helps each league president. Last spring, District 14 included Winter Garden, Windermere, Dr. Phillips Little League, South Lake and Ocoee Little Leagues. She also facilitated the All-Stars tournaments between leagues in June and July. An executive assistant for Disney, a company she has worked at for 45 years, Dobbs said the administrative and organizational skills the job requires are second nature. What motivated me is Im a very organized person it just kind of is in my DNA to be very organized and to want things done the right way, Dobbs said. In fact, it is a good thing that Dobbs works for the regions most famous employer. Disneys desire for its employees to be involved in their communities has helped facilitate her at-times rigorous volunteer schedule that can add up to 400 or 500 hours by years end. Im very fortunate to work for a company that is supportive of community efforts because some of that has creeped over some times into my job, Dobbs said. As district administrator, Dobbs has nine volunteer staffers and also gets to work with each league. Over the years, she says, she has gotten to know plenty of special kids and their parents. The kids are great I love the kids, and Ive never had an issue with any child out here, Dobbs said. The parents they can be challenging at times but there are a lot of good people out here working in the leagues very hard to maintain the programs and provide an opportunity for children to play baseball. Of course, all good things must come to an end. Dobbs, who is 64, plans to continue working at Disney for the near future but said the end of her four-year term this October seemed as good a time as any to call it quits. I decided that I want to have a little more free time for myself, Dobbs said. Before that, shell make one more visit to the mecca of Little League Baseball Williamsport, Pennsylvania, where the Little League World Series is held each summer. Dobbs went for the first time last summer and said the experience was profound. It was phenomenal, Dobbs said. I think its an experience that everybody should have. They really treat the children like theyre superstars it was great. Dobbs time with District 14 has seen growth in some leagues Winter Garden Little League stands out, as its robust participation has the league nearly bursting at the seams and troubles in others. Pine Hills Little League, Rolling Hills Little League and MetroWest Little League all have disbanded since 2000, and Ocoee Little League voted last week to move from Little League to Babe Ruth Baseball. Still, as her time winds down and she prepares to pass the baton, the Horizon West resident is excited for a new chapter and hopeful that she made a lasting impact in her community. Im very glad I did it, Dobbs said. I hope Ive made my mark by having a very good and organized community-based program for all of our children.
