ROXANNE BROWN | Staff Writer roxanne.brown@dailycommercial.com O ver the years, teachers have been incorpo rating more hands-on techniques instead of teaching from the text book. In Lake County, school ofcials are en couraging teachers to let students bring their own technology into the classroom. This in cludes laptop comput ers, tablets and even smartphones. At an introducto ry program meet ing on Wednesday at Pine Ridge Elementa ry School, the districts Innovative Learning Department talked about the concept with teachers. What I would like for you to think about is that we are at a point in our lives that we have to embrace tech nology, Innovative Learning Specialist Jayne Chapuis said. She reviewed the benets of Bring Your Own Technology for students. BYOT is more em powering for students because we are allow ing them to have a de vice that meets their needs, Chapuis said. They can choose their own applications and learning styles.

They were looking for Veterans Garden. Once they were point ed in the right direction, Sweatt said she heard one person say, This is it? This is really pathetic for a Veterans Garden, a sentiment that caused her to examine the gar den herself. I looked around and thought we could real ly do more with the gar den, so I brought it up to the rest of the council that night. I suggested doing something about it and said it was a good idea, Sweatt said. We discussed it a little and they put me in charge of it. I accepted that and Im running with it. The Veterans Garden is located in front of the Puryear Building in downtown Groveland. Foliage is planted in a grassy, mulched area around a monument honoring veterans of the Korean War that in cludes the names of lo cal veterans. The monu ment was erected by the Korean War Veterans Association Chapter 188, south Lake Coun ty unit. Some of the plants had died off and the area needed sprucing up, but in cooperation with Sweatt and others in charge of a Memori al Day remembrance, the city planted new fo liage, laid new mulch and purchased veteran silhouette statues to be used for events.

ROXANNE BROWN | Staff Writer roxanne.brown@dailycommercial.com New Beginnings an nual celebrity softball game brought people out to have a good time for a good cause. We came last year and had so much fun that we just had to come again this year to the tradition alive, said Larry Aiel lo, who was at the event with his 9-year-old, lit tle league-playing son, Brandon. We got here at 4:30 p.m. and did every thing; we saw the storm troopers, batman, took a helicopter ride, took pic tures with the snake and turtle, watched all the games. It was awesome. Brandon, who spent most of his time fetch ing softballs hit out of the eld, sat excitedly with the two balls he kept and got signed by some of the celebrities in the games. I liked when the he licopter took off, I liked petting the snake and I liked the games. It was fun running after the CLERMONT Turnout huge for annual celebrity softball game Col. Danny R.

ANDREA HOWER MONTVERDE They should have bounties on the hogs. They are problematic. STEPHEN KESZEY BUSHNELL It seems like there should be a better way than to kill them with poi son. If there is an excess, let hunters shoot them so they can be used for food. REGINA CRUZ CLERMONT Still, Sweatt said shed like to ex pand the garden and have ve light ed agpoles to represent the ve branches of military Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard and additional monuments for veterans of World War I, World War II, Vietnam and the Gulf Wars. Shed also like to y Groveland police and re department ags, since they are rst responders to the community. Sweatt also hopes to have the 15-year-old Puryear Building mural repainted on the side that faces the street with a vet eran theme. In addition, she suggests that on the side walls overlooking the gar den, paintings of veterans standing at attention be painted as if they were there guarding the garden. I would just really like to make the garden a tribute to all veterans, and I think others would like to see that happen too, Sweatt said. Our veterans deserve a beautiful, serene place where they can come to pay tribute to their fallen comrades. This garden will show our veterans that people care about them and appreciate their sacrices. With that in mind, Sweatt opened a Go Fund Me account to gather do nations. Her goal is to raise $60,000, the amount she approximates will be required for the improvements. Sweatt, who recently was elected to the council, had $250 left in her campaign fund, which she now has transferred to the garden fund. I know it takes a while to do something like this and were a long way off, but like I keep saying to people, baby steps. I donated that $250 and besides that I have raised almost $300, Sweatt said of the money she has seen roll in through the Go Fund Me account.

GARDEN FROM PAGE A1 have the tools that many of them already have when they leave school and use those tools to help them learn better while in school. Chris Patton, spokes man for the school dis trict, said the BYOT program could save fam ilies money because the equipment can replace many of the school sup plies that are necessary today. The district would also save by eliminating the cost of issuing and maintaining district-pur chased equipment. Halbig said every high school in the district in corporates BYOT. In south Lake, elementa ry schools already using BYOT are Cypress Ridge, Lost Lake, Sawgrass Bay and Grassy Lake. Mid dle schools implementing the program this year are East Ridge and Clermont middle schools and, pos sibly, Pine Ridge. On Thursday, it seemed most of the Pine Ridge teachers were open to the idea, but concerns still lingered about not know ing exactly what to ex pect or how the program would affect their class room or teaching styles. During the train ing, third-grade teach er Christine Denman had concerns with the fact that the devices would override the human ele ment and wanted more data about how the pro gram is benecial to stu dents. But Chelsey Gismonde, who teaches fourth grade at Pine Ridge, said she loves the idea. Kids these days are so tech savvy already, and I think this program will help students buy in a lit tle more to learning, and who knows, theyll prob ably be able to show us more, Gismonde said. We may as well embrace the idea and use it to our potential. Stephanie Mayuski, the principal at Pine Ridge, said shed be happy to see her teachers jump on board with the program, as soon as they are ready.

I threw two back in and kept two, Brandon said, adding that he would give one to his sister. Two exhibition games were played simultaneously the Clermont Fire Depart ment against Lake Coun ty Fire-Rescue, and the Cl ermont Police Department against the Lake County Sheriffs Ofce. The rst pitch was thrown out by Col. Danny R. McK night, whose combat mis sion in Mogadishu, Somalia was the basis for the movie Black Hawk Down. The main event saw the Congressional Crushers, or the red team, led by U.S. Rep. Daniel Webster, against the Senatorial Smashers, blue team, led by state Sen. Alan Hays. Robbie and Stephen Keszey, also known as The Swamp Brothers from TVs Discovery Channel, were split up on opposing teams. Robbie Keszey, on the Smashers team, even brought out a 150-pound al bino Burmese python to try to scare runners off rst base, but in the end, the Congres sional Crushers took the win with a 16-15 score. Its such a great way for everyone to just forget work for a little while and have a lot of fun to help New Begin nings raise money to help the homeless community. It brings political leaders and our emergency personnel out and everyone just loves doing it, Webster said from the dugout.

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 SOUTH LAKE PRESS A3 LIVI STANFORD | Staff Writer livi.stanford@dailycommercial.com Lake County Fire Rescues Station 20 in Umatilla is not staffed most of the time be cause reghters are needed at other stations when re ghters are on leave. But on Aug. 11 when a re broke out in the Lakeside RV Park near the station, it hap pened to be staffed that day with two reghters. Fireghters ended up res cuing an elderly woman from the mobile home, re of cials conrmed. If reghters had not been at the station, the next clos est station would have had to respond, said Brian Gam ble, vice president of the Pro fessional Fireghters of Lake County. It would have added ve to six minutes in response time, he said. A trailer burns quickly. It would have been a very different out come: worse than it was. Gamble said there are not enough reghters to ade quately staff county re sta tions like Station 20. Gamble said the majority of the 24 re stations are staffed only with two reghters, making it particularly dif cult to respond adequately to emergencies in outlying ar eas such as Pine Lakes, Astor and Sorrento without jeopar dizing the safety of reght ers and citizens. Gamble said it is critical there be four reghters per station, an industry standard backed by a Department of Commerce study proving its effectiveness. In the last ve years there have been three close calls with reghters, Gamble said, as a result of not enough man power at the scene of a re. Two reghters were burned in a house re in Lady Lake in 2011 and two other reghters were trapped in a brush re in the Pine Lakes area in 2012, Gamble said. We are running a skele ton crew of two reghters, he said. We would like to see the proper stafng on trucks before someone gets seri ously injured or killed. Three close calls is three too many. We have a heavier re load than most other counties. We are already jeopardiz ing safety with the manpow er issue. It is going to lead to something worse until we get proper manpower. Fire calls rose 34 percent between 2008 and 2013, Gamble said. The last time the re de partment increased overall stafng was in 2009, to open a new station in Astatula. We have only hired to re place, Gamble said. That has cost the county $1 mil lion over the last six years. Lake County Fire Chief John Jolliff said while he would rather have addition al personnel, he understood the budget constraints the county nds itself in. County ofcials are grappling with a $15 million shortfall. I would have a better com fortable feeling if the trucks were staffed with more re ghters, he said. But at the same time, he said, it is hard to say whether there is a need for more staff ing. Sometimes we are real ly lucky and we have multi ple units in the same area, he said. It depends on their loca tion, where their incident is. There are so many variables. Jolliff also said the close-call incidents were not related to manpower, but to the kinds of buildings that were on re. Gamble disagreed. These guys in outlying ar eas, they are waiting for back up, he said. It is not safe at all. Our own analysis of those calls recommended more manpower. When a house re calls comes in, a minimum of sev en re trucks are dispatched to meet the minimum na tional standards of 15 re ghters on the scene. It can sometimes take eight min utes or more for the second closest truck to help the rst arriving crews, Gamble said. Mike Dickens, president of the Astor Chamber of Com merce and retired captain with Orange County Fire Res cue, said the issue in Astor is if there is a structure re, OSHA rules dictate that you must have four reghters to go into the home unless someones life is at risk. Two reghters must be outside the home to pro vide rescue for the reght ers that go into the burning building as part of OSHA reg ulations, Dickens said. Therefore, reghters are often waiting minutes for backup, taking longer to re spond. The biggest thing for us is that it is going to take a long time to get help here, he said. You are playing Rus sian roulette. You are bank ing on a chance that nothing is going to happen and when you are dealing with peoples lives that is not right. The most recent study from the U.S. Department of Com merces National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) shows that the size of reghting crews has a sub stantial effect on the re ser vices ability to protect lives Too few firefighters, too much risk, critics say PHOTO COURTESY OF ALLEN SHAFFER Lake County reghters helping to assist with a re at the Oak Terrace Professional Plaza in Leesburg in 2008.

I wholeheartedly agree with the ad mission that they are too high and an ti-business. I wonder, however, why they are too high for the mall and not for the rest of the city. Now the mall will have an advantage over the rest of us in com peting for tenants or, for that matter, any business desiring to purchase a building. Why the favoritism? Wouldnt it be more fair to treat all utility payers the same and lower the deposits for every one or is that too much to ask? JIM WHITAKER | Fruitland Park LETTER of the WEEK DAILY COMMERCIAL FILE PHOTO A man walks into the Lake Square Mall in Leesburg on March 26. Heaven is for believers In the July 12 comics sec tion of the Daily Commercia l, Beetle Bailey goes to his chap lain and asks, Do you think Ill go to heaven, Chaplain? And the chaplain replies, If youre a good person, Im sure you will. Beetle says, Great! Then sarge wont be there! Implying he is good and the sargeant is bad and therefore sarge will not enter heaven. Many people believe in this false promise of thinking. Ive never been convicted of any crime and God is good and would never hold back heaven from me, a good person, so Ill go to heaven. The Bible does not teach that only good people go to heav en but only those who accept. Ephesians 2:8, For by grace (Gods riches at Christs ex pense) are you saved through faith (in Jesus) and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God not of works lest anyone should boast. And Gods gift is his son Jesus, who as the ultimate sacrice who shed his blood on a cross for us all (sinners) so that we could be with Jesus by faith only and not by works. How would you have answered Beetle Baileys question? Remember its only by death that the truth of heaven or hell is revealed. Which way will you choose? ALVIN F. BERRY | Leesburg The useless GOP House President Obama said the 113th Congress is the least pro ductive in history. Also, the Boehner House of Representatives will be known for being the least helpful to Americans than any House since 1947. So, the GOP House holds the record for being the most useless piece of U.S. gov ernment so far. How did they win that title? 1) The GOP helped Ted Cruz shut down the government for 16 days at a cost of 24 billion taxpayer dollars. 2) The GOP passed the Ryan budget that cuts Medicare for all beneciaries. 3) The GOP cut taxes for wealthy people and cut $3 tril lion from programs that help the poorest among us. 4) The GOP cut $85 billion from the food stamp program. 5) The GOP let unemploy ment insurance expire at a cost of $2 million. 6) The GOP voted to deport undocumented children of immigrants. 7) The GOP tried to reduce Obamacare with no plan to help Americans who have minimal insurance. 8) The GOP passed a Sandy Storm relief bill three months after the GOP Reps on the East Coast complained to those Bah Humbugs in Washington. 9) The GOP had the small est work schedule in the past 20 years. 10) Oh, yes. The GOP re named 10 U.S. Post Ofces. Source: www.electablog.com. ROBERT WESOLOWSKI | The Villages GOP tried to solve immigration problem Robert Wesolowskis recent letter from Aug. 3 where he states that the right wing con servatives are, suddenly inter ested in the illegal immigrants ooding the southern border couldnt be farther from the truth. It seems to have slipped his mind that Arizona tried to do something about the problem in the absence of any kind of help on the federal level, which is a Constitutional mandate of the federal government, only to be demonized and sued in fed eral court by the Obama judi cial department. I would also like to tell Wesolowski that all the money in the world wont make a differ ence until that border is sealed against illegal crossings. But according to him, it is all the Republicans fault for refus ing to give this administration more money to waste. When he was in ofce, President Ronald Reagan put his name on an amnes ty bill with a promise from Tip ONeills Congress that bor der security would follow, and Reagan went to his grave still waiting on that promised se curity for our southern border from the Democrats. So maybe in the Republicans (or conser vatives) eyes once bitten twice, cautious. I would also like to remind Wesolowski that we are a nation of laws. There are immigration laws already on the books. They just need to be enforced equally for all persons wanting to enter our country and not only en forced on certain groups. Our Constitution is clear on most things and border security is one of them, so we can be ei ther a country of laws or a mob rule with no laws. But it begins with leadership at the top that will obey the Constitution, and this administration has demon strated that they dont believe in that document and have no desire to enforce it or obey it at any level. GARY A. ZOOK | Fruitland Park YOUR VOICES LETTERS TO THE EDITOR L ake County commissioners were poised Tuesday to tackle a $15 million spending in crease in next years budget that could trig ger an 18 percent hike in property taxes. There are myriad reasons why next years pro posed budget is swelling: $3.6 million more for the Sheriffs Ofce, primarily for raises; work on the county judicial center; increases in benets and retirement contributions; replacement of county ambulances and vehicles, etc. Some county ofcials explain that the in crease is the result of years of low property values caused by the recession. When the housing mar ket went bust and property values plummeted, so did tax revenues, which are based on the value of a home or business. The problem is that while revenue lagged, the demand for county services did not. The county still had to provide re and ambulance services, law enforcement, permitting, code enforce ment and parks. Ofcials cut some personnel during the recession years and held the line on salaries, but some ofcials argue that they can no longer hold the line on spending. Faced with such a large and controversial tax increase, its a wonder, then, that the Lake County Commission has spent so little time debating the budget. Commissioners met in July to talk about the budget and not again since. Theyll talk Tues day, but its getting late in the game because the nal budget and tax rate has to be ap proved in September. You have to wonder why the reluctance to dive in and have serious, frequent discussions about this critical issue. The board could have spent the past few months evaluating and pri oritizing spending requests, making depart ment heads and constitutional ofcers justi fy their requests for additional money. But they havent. And why not? For instance, the county has earmarked mil lions to complete renovations on the county ju dicial center. It certainly may need some work, but is that something that can be delayed a year or two until property values and revenue rise? Is it critical to the well-being of the community? The commission also seems reluctant to take on the sheriff and his request for more than $3 million in raises. The sheriff argues that deputies havent received raises in a few years, which is also true for a large percentage of workers in the private sector. Theres also value, as some business lead ers said at a Lake 100 meeting last week, in de bating what constitutes an essential govern ment service and budgeting accordingly. We dont advocate cutting libraries or closing parks. But like any business or homeowner in the red, the county should continue looking for ways to pare spending. When all is said and done, a tax increase of some sort may be necessary. But unless the com mission does a serious examination of its bud get now, it may be hard to trust that the gure it comes up with is necessary and justied. So far, it hasnt convinced us. Time to take the budget seriously

The re model ing showed clearly that two-person crews can not complete essential re ground tasks in time to rescue occupants without subjecting them to an increasingly toxic atmosphere, the study stated. The press release states the study was conducted by a broad coalition in the scientif ic, reghting and pub lic safety communities. Overall, the study found the four per son crews operating on a low-hazard struc ture re completed all the tasks on the re ground on average sev en minutes fasternear ly 30 percentthan the two-person crews. Further, the four-and ve-person crews start ed and completed a pri mary search 30 percent faster than the two-per son crew. Fire risks grow expo nentially, said NISTs Jason Averill, one of the studys principal inves tigators in a statement. Each minute of delay is critical to the safety of the occupants and re ghters, and is direct ly related to property damage. The National Fire Protection Association states in its standards that re stations should be staffed with a min imum of four on-du ty personnel arriving as the rst crew on the scene. Also, the Interna tional Association of Fireghters released a study, Contributing Factors to Fireghter Line-of-Duty Injury in Metropolitan Fire De partments in the Unit ed States, which found that 26 percent of in juries reghters sus tained were the result of inadequate crew size. FIRE FROM PAGE A3 LIVI STANFORD | Staff Writer livi.stanford@dailycommercial.com Lake County School District ofcials said this week that the new school year has gotten off to a smooth start, but one school board member expressed con cern about seven buses within the district with out air conditioning. Temperatures on Fri day rose to 92 degrees, with the heat index at 101. School board mem ber Bill Mathias said he was notied by dis trict staff this week that throughout the sum mer bottled water will be put on buses without air conditioning. They are going to try to get those buses on the shortest routes, he said. However, other school ofcials said the district has not always had air conditioning on its bus es and the ones that do are not always working properly. Currently there are 330 buses in the coun ty, with 250 bus routes, according to Chris Pat ton, spokesman for the district. Of the 330 buses, 47 buses do not have air conditioning, Patton conrmed. But 40 of those bus es are spare buses, he said. Only seven run ev ery day. After 2003, all newly purchased buses have air conditioning, Pat ton said. The problem is the countys eet is ag ing and it cant afford to replace all the old bus es yet. Patton said capital funding has been re duced over the years because the stagnant economy has kept property values low and the Florida Legislature cut the maximum al lowable millage for cap ital purposes from 2 mills to 1.5 mills. It really cramped how many buses we could replace each year, he said. Patton said he could not conrm the num ber of students on the routes. One parent, who wished not to be iden tied for fear of reper cussion to his daugh ter from the district, said he was gravely con cerned about the heat on the buses. He said his daughter comes home sick because of being overheated. My concern is you have asthmatic kids out there, the parent said. It will take a kid to die to get air conditioning in all these buses. Board Member Tod Howard said he was con cerned but noted there was not always air con ditioning on the buses. Further, he said the air conditioners on the buses are notoriously troublesome. They dont always work, he said. When you look at our buses the most common reason for a work order is the air conditioner. As long as the heat within the bus es does not become a health issue, there is not much we can do. Howard said he has not heard from a single parent on the issue. Some school buses lack air conditioning Currently there are 330 buses in the county, with 250 bus routes, according to Chris Patton, spokesman for the district. Of the 330 buses, 47 buses do not have air conditioning, Patton confirmed. Special engineering classroom units are coming to Cypress Ridge Elementary School, already a topranked science, technology, engi neering and mathematics (STEM) school. A grant from the STEM Alliance of Central Florida will give Cypress Ridge ve units of Engineering is El ementary (EiE) course materials for the 2014-15 school year. Each unit comes with 24 student books, one teachers guide, four material kits and teacher training for up to ve teachers, according to a press re lease from the school district. Units will be chosen through a collaboration between the school and staff at the Orlando Science Center from the 20 available topics in life science, earth and space sci ence and physical science. We are very excited to be a part ner with the Orlando Science Cen ter, school Principal Dale Delpit said in the release. We expanded our engineering program last year and feel that the professional devel opment that we will receive, along with the curriculum units will great ly enhance our program. The EiE cross-disciplinary class room units were developed by the Museum of Science in Boston with the aim of promoting and bolstering engineering instruction in our na tions elementary schools. Accord ing to its website eie.org, EiE offers fun, engaging engineering chal lenges that boost student inter est in engineering and are stan dards-based, research-based and teacher tested. Cypress Ridge Elementary is a strong performer in STEM pro grams. The schools third grade team nished rst at Lake County Schools annual STEM Bowl while the schools fourth grade team came in second. In June, Cypress Ridge and 13 oth er elementary schools Astatula, Eustis Heights, Grassy Lake, Grove land, Lost Lake, Round Lake, Con version Charter, Sawgrass Bay, Seminole Springs, Sorrento, Tava res, Treadway, Triangle and Umatil la were recognized for becoming a Lake County Schools designated STEM School.

The ACLU led a mo tion on Friday asking a judge for summary judgment in a lawsuit challenging the Lake County School Districts refusal to allow the club to meet. The suit was led last December and there has been little ac tivity since then. The new school year has just begun, Fridays 24-page motion states. The School Board, through its superinten dent, has violated the Equal Access Act in dis allowing the Carver GSA to form and operate as a student group. Plaintiffs request that the court ensure that they are giv en equal access to all of the benets afforded to any other non-curric ulum related student group as the school year resumes. The ACLU led a sim ilar motion last March, but it was denied by Federal District Judge William Terrell Hodges, who said, The plaintiffs have not demonstrated a substantial likelihood of prevailing on the mer its of their claim under the Equal Access Act. In deed, the probable out come with respect to that claim appears to be to the contrary. A pre liminary injunction un der the Equal Access Act must be denied for that reason. Hodges last March also denied a school district motion to dis miss the suit. GSAs are student or ganizations made up of lesbian, gay, bisex ual and transgender (LGBT) students who advocate for an end to bullying, harassment and discrimination against all students. An initial ACLU suit was settled last May when school ofcials agreed to allow the GSA to meet at Carver Mid dle for three weeks un til school let out for the summer. The school district then came up with new policy for middle school clubs and decided the GSA was not an extension of school curriculum and could not meet, result ing in the second ACLU suit in December. In its latest motion, the ACLU argues that other clubs have been allowed to meet, even though the school dis trict considers them not related to school curric ulum, including hon or societies, student government associa tions and a chess club. A school creates a lim ited open forum under the Equal Access Act if it permits non-curric ulum related student groups to meet, the motion states. Students deserve schools that will support them in ending bullying rather than exacerbat ing the problem, Dan iel Tilley, ACLU of Flor ida LGBT rights staff attorney and lead coun sel in the case, said in a press release issued Fri day afternoon. Its time for the students at Carv er to have the closure they deserve and have their right to establish this club to make their school a safer place re spected. The case is still await ing its next phase, during which the par ties will exchange evi dence, but no court date has been set for this. LEESBURG New school year sparks ACLU motion on GSA

Winter Park Trinity Prep scored on a blocked eld goal and a kickoff returned for a touchdown. The Saints took a 19-0 lead into halftime. Austin Hunt scored on Montverde Acad emys rst possession of the second half, but the Eagles were unable to score again. Jeremy Asiffo was a standout on defense for Montverde Academy. The Eagles will open the regular season on Friday at Ocala Trinity Catholic. ORLANDO LAKE NONA 62, LAKE MINNEOLA 35 Lake Minneola took a 28-26 lead in the third quarter before highly touted Orlan do Lake Nona quarterback Tucker Israel found another gear for the win in Orlando. The game began more than 30 minutes late due to lightning. Desmond Johnson scored a touchdown, Bryndan McCoy scored twice and quarter back Jesse Fiske also scored for the Hawks. Lake Minneola will open its season at home on Friday against Ocala Lake Weir. APOPKA WEKIVA 27, LEESBURG 24 The Yellow Jackets fell behind just before halftime and played from behind for the entire second half. We fought hard, but we just made too many mistakes to win the game, Lees burg coach Rich Maresco said. Maresco said his freshman quarter back Wyatt Rector played well, as did his high-octane receiving corps, led by Bryan Jefferson and Adrian Falconer. Falconer also stepped up on defense, racing 80 yards with a fumble for a touch down. Leesburg will open its regular season on Friday at Tavares. FIRST ACADEMY OF LEESBURG 10, OVIEDO MASTERS 7 FIRST ACADEMY OF LEESBURG 7, WINDERMERE PREP 7 The Eagles picked up a win and a tie in a true jamboree game in which the Eagles played partial games against two oppo nents.

There was a lot of things to like. Walker said Kreevon Maple played well and caught the game-winning pass against Oviedo Masters. The brother combination of Tyler and Ojay Cummings also stepped up for First Academy of Leesburg on the offensive side of the ball. The Eagles will open their regular sea son on Friday against Belle Isle Corner stone Charter at the Sleepy Hollow Sports Complex.

Two rushing TDs came from standout L.J. Smith and one receiving touchdown came from Jordan McPherson to give Mount Dora Bible the big win. BRONSON 48, WILDWOOD 7 In an eye-opening loss in last nights matchup, Wildwood was handed a dose of tough reality. While not many mis takes were made on the eld by the Wild cats, Bronsons caliber proved to be of high standards. Coach Austin said his team needs to get in shape if they expect to play at the level of the good competition they will face this season. Torre Parker had the only touchdown for the Wildcats. On a broken play, Parker made a nice read and rushed in for the score. Wildwood takes on South Sumter next week on the road. Montverde Academy falls to Trinity Prep in Kickoff Classic FRANK JOLLEY | Staff Writer frank.jolley@dailycommercial.com Fresh off a 7-3 season, the South Lake High School football team gured to be pretty good in 2014. Based on Fridays 38-0 win against Tavares in both teams Kickoff Classic, the Eagles might be even better than expected. South Lake put the Bulldogs away early, with a 17-point out burst in the rst quarter and scor ing on its rst four possessions. After taking the opening kick off and marching down to Tavares 6-yard line in six plays, the Eagles capped off the drive with a 23-yard eld goal by Angel Peunte. The fact that South Lake settled for a eld goal rather than a touchdown pro vided the Bulldogs with a spark. At least, temporarily. On Tavares rst offensive play following the eld goal, from the Bulldogs 13-yard line, South Lakes Brady Walter stepped into the pass ing lane and picked off Austin Tom sons rst pass to give Eagles a sec ond chance at a touchdown in a span of less than a minute. From the 12, South Lake needed just ve plays all runs to open up a 10-point advantage. Kevin Ev ans capped off the mini-drive with a 3-yard run. Later in the quarter, South Lake quarterback Nick Guidetti added another score when he connect ed with Anthony Giglia on a 5-yard scoring pass. The rest of the game was little more than a coronation for the Ea gles. Im satised with our effort and the way we played, South Lake coach Mark Woolum said. We ap proached the game like a scrim mage and saw a lot of good things. Weve still got some work to do to get where we want to be, but there were a lot of things to like about our play. Guidettis performance left Woolum with a smile on his face. He played only three quarters, but completed 14-of-16 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns. He tossed two interceptions, but his fearless approach after be ing picked off stood out nearly as much as his eld leadership. South Lakes running game took advantage of its experienced offen sive line and pummelled the Bull dogs for 147 yards on 37 attempts. Evans led the way with 68 yards on 15 carries, with only two carries for 12 yards in the second half. Chuckie Hutchinson added 59 yards on 12 carries. Tavares top rusher was Ezekiel Thomas with 37 yards on three carries. In addition to South Lakes of fensive domination, the Eagles defense stied Tavares for most of the game. They held the Bull dogs to 34 yards of offense in the rst half and surrendered only 108 yards for the game. For the game, Tavares two quar terbacks, Tomson and Ronnie Sto nesifer, combined to complete 8-of-20 passes for 55 yards. South Lakes running game rum bled for 147 yards, giving the Ea gles a 396-108 advantage in total offense. After D.J. Allen raced in for the games nal score with about ve minutes to play, the game was played to its conclusion using a running clock. South Lake will open its regular season at 7 p.m. Thursday against East Ridge at Eagle Stadium.

MARK FISHER Special to the Daily Commercial The Mount Dora Hurri canes overcame injuries among their starting line, including to their starting center, to eke out a 30-21 win over the East Ridge Knights on Friday in Cl ermont. The Knights took the early lead when Zach Honnold clicked off a 23 yard run midway through the rst quarter and Zach Block added the point af ter. The Knights capital ized on a bad exchange from center that sent the ball over the Hurricanes punter, who was forced to cover the ball at his 32 yard line. Honnold then powered East Ridge to an early 7-0 lead. Hurricane miscues dashed an opportunity to tie the score, but a 41yard eld goal brought them to 7-3. The Canes moved in front 10-7 late in the second quarter when Zach Dickinson hit Kevin Stevenson in the end zone for a 24-yard score. Looking to add to their lead in the third quar ter, the Canes found that their hosts were not go ing to cooperate as Ja len Lozano took a forced fumble after a pass and returned it 97 yards for an East Ridge touchdown. Blocks PAT was no good, giving East Ridge a 13-10 edge. Mount Dora quick ly answered when, on the Knights next possession, Hunter Bush was hit on a quarterback keeper and a Mount Dora lineman scooped up the loose ball and returned it 20 yards to push the Hurricanes in front 16-13. In the fourth quar ter, East Ridge secured a safety and edged to with in 16-15 when the snap on a Mount Dora punt was high and the punter Mount Dora fights injuries for tough win over East Ridge JOE OTT / SPECIAL TO THE DAILY COMMERCIAL Willie Davis runs for daylight against East Ridge.

Ann Dupee REMEMBER WHEN A weekly column that reprints some of the more interesting news stories that have appeared over the years in the pages of the South Lake Press. B2 SOUTH LAKE PRESS Wednesday, August 27, 2014 www.southlakepress.com C OMMUNITY Proudly serving CLERMONT, MINNEOLA, GROVELAND, MASCOTTE and MONTVERDE YOUR CONTACT FOR LOCAL NEWS STAFF WRITER ...................... ROXANNE BROWN TELEPHONE .................................... 394 FAX .................................................. 394-8001 EMAIL ..... roxannebrown@dailycommercial.com HOMETOWN: Montverde OCCUPATION: Student/sales FAMILY: Mother, father and sister What do you enjoy most about south Lake County? South Lake County has so much natural beauty. Whether it is getting into a kayak and taking a trip through the rivers, or taking a walk through one of the many trails, there are countless opportunities to get lost in the splendor of the primal world. Being able to see rsthand the raw and awe-inspiring won der helps me relax. 1) If you had to summarize your philosophy of life in one sentence, what would it be? I would actually have to borrow a quote from one of my fellow Toastmasters: Hard work beats talent any day. If you are talented though, work hard. 2) Name a person or incident youve come across recently thats touched you in some way. Why did this person or incident impress you so much? Without a doubt, outside of my family, I would have to say Gordie Allen has impressed me a great deal. Without getting into specics, I was in a very bad po sition about a year ago. I joined the Clermont Toast masters group to help myself become more pro cient with public speaking and leadership skills. Once there, a gentleman named Gordie Allen became my mentor and has challenged me and encouraged me to become better and better ever since. I can say, without a doubt, that if Gordie had not volunteered to work with me, I doubt I would be preparing for the next phase of my life today. 3) How does what you do contribute to the welfare of the area? I do a lot of work with leadership skills and pub lic speaking. I challenge and encourage everyone I meet to work harder, to not take things at face value, and to demand more from themselves and others. I use the leadership skills I have learned to not just tell people how to perform a certain task, but also to get down in the trenches, so to speak, and show them how it is done as well. I believe I help facilitate growth from people, by not allowing from them any thing I would not allow from myself the very best. 4) Name one of your greatest accomplishments so far. Joining Toastmasters International Clermont and earning my competent communications award in six months. It was difcult, challenging, and exhilarat ing. I worked harder in those six months than I had on anything else, and the payoff has been well worth it. 5) Whats something youve always wanted to do but havent yet? I would love to go rock climbing one day. There is a certain appeal to scaling a sheer rock face and climbing to the top, using only your own devices. You get the joy of seeing nature, feeling the awesome power all around you, and challenging yourself to make it to the precipice of wherever you are. I have heard the view from the top is beautiful as well -a palpable reward for your hard work.

The business, at 240 Citrus Tow er Blvd., in a former Blockbuster location, will have ve employees, according to Salmon. Other businesses in the plaza include a Publix and Belk. We think thats the best spot for us in Clermont, Salmon said. Clermont Economic Develop ment Director James Hitt said the location gets a lot of cross trafc and is at a major intersection. South Lake Chamber of Com merce President Ray San Fratel lo also said it is a great location, noting the plaza is very active, has easy access from the highway and has a nice mix of businesses. Were getting these places that we used to have to drive to all the time, San Fratello said. Now, we no longer have to leave (the) Cler mont area or south Lake County to have these kinds of conveniences. Hitt said there is nothing like Appliance Direct in the area and it will be an excellent t for Cler mont. Its taking a large corner on one of our major developments and anytime you have something vacant like that it doesnt do any good for any of the other tenants, Hitt said. It creates foot trafc, which is also a major thing. The stores hours will be 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Solution on page B9 was forced to cover the ball in the end zone. Taking the ensuing kick from the Canes, the Knights drove deep into Mount Dora terri tory until they stalled at the 25 yard line. With just under 6 minutes re maining, they elected to go for the rst down and turned the ball over when Zach Honnold fumbled ghting for the rst down. Mount Dora drove the length of the eld to ex tend the lead to 23-15 when Dickinson hit Von Davis for an 18-yard score and the game seemed to be well in hand with only 2:11 re maining in the game. Forced to kick from their 35 after an off sides call on the initial kick-off attempt, the Knights returner broke off a stunning run that gave East Ridge rst and goal at the Hurri cane 6 yard line. Hunter Bush hit Kyle Secue on fourth and goal for the East Ridge touchdown and they trailed 23-21 but the 2 point conver sion rushing attempt by Honnold was swarmed and ended the come back, or so it seemed. East Ridge recovered the onside kick attempt with 24.2 seconds re maining to give them one last chance to pull off a miracle nish. But Bushs pass was inter cepted by Von Davis who returned it for the nal score and secured the win 30-21 for Mount Dora.

HISTORY FROM PAGE B2 THERESA CAMPBELL | Staff Writer theresacampbell@dailycommercial.com T wo years of being home less and living in the woods have come to an end for 43-year-old Susan Fredericks. The U.S. Army veteran moved into her new Leesburg apart ment this week, aided by the Veterans Organization of Re source and Recovery for the Homeless (VORRH) in Eustis. For a long time, I have been ready for this. I never gave up hope, she said. I am just so ex cited. Fredericks relishes the idea of being able to get a good nights sleep on a bed rather than on the ground inside a tent, and she raved about her new kitchen lled with cabinets and top ap pliances. It didnt take her long to start making plans for her new home, including sprucing up the living room with a fresh coat of paint. I love the color in the kitchen. I would love to have the mustard color all the way through, Fred ericks said as she made small talk with her new landlord, Wen dy Chase, who also serves as a VORRH volunteer. Fredericks life changed when she met VORRH directors Lloyd Thorne and Helen Shaut three weeks ago during the pairs visit to a homeless campsite in Fruit land Park, one of 100 sites in Lake County where homeless veterans live. The pair did an assessment on Fredericks and learned she joined the Army in 2008, with a desire to follow in the footsteps of her grandfather and great-grand father. She worked as a mechanic at Fort Jackson, S.C. It was a family tradition. I just had to go in the Army, Fredericks said, recalling she was encour aged to go into the Army Reserves or National Guard. I said, No, it has to be regular Army or nothing at all, because that is what they (her ancestors) were in. After her military service, Fred ericks never gave up her ambi tion to work again or her desire for a home where her grandchil dren could play. Fredericks was married soon after she got out of the Army. The marriage ended in divorce two years later, and through a series of unfortunate events, she lost her house. It was a major blow. I nev er expected to be homeless. My whole life changed in an in stant, Fredericks said. She remembers being 7 miles from Dunnellon and 14 miles from Ocala in the middle of the hot summer heat while trying to walk to both cities to look for work. The EMTs and reghters know me quite well in Marion County because I was falling a lot from heat strokes, she said. It is hard getting a job when youre homeless, Fredericks said. Some of them (employers) look at you like youre below dirt and youre not. You just get stuck. Fredericks ended up in Lees burg and met a homeless veter an on 14th Street who told her where she could eat and sleep. I moved around to wherever I could lay my head down, she said. The guys in the woods were great. They never did anything in appropriate towards me. I had more problems from civilian men drivers trying to pick me up. Fredericks said she never wanted to burden her three chil dren about her plight. They have kids and my grand children come rst, and I am not taking anything from my grand babies mouths, period, said the grandmother of six with three more grandchildren on the way. My kids and my grandbabies are my whole world. She admits being skeptical when Thorne and Shaut told her about VORRH and offered to put her in a motel for a couple of weeks while they arranged for housing through a grant from Veteran Affairs Supportive Ser vices for Veterans Families Pro gram (SSVF). Under the SSVF program, the VA awards grants to private non prot organizations like VORRH that can provide supportive ser vices to help homeless veterans secure stable housing. Accord ing the Veterans Affairs website about SSFV, assistance may in clude health care, daily living services, transportation, legal service, child care and housing counseling.
