Apopka Chief Staff

Human bones, including a skull,

cell phone, and jewelry belonging to
Onda "Chris" George have been fond
in a local lake by Apopka police, who
are continuing to search Lake Carter
for more evidence. The items have all

Rob Manley, Apopka police chief,
also said other items have been found
during the search in Lake Carter, in-
cluding a clothing size tag designating
33-32 pants, police said.
Although all signs point to the
remains belonging to George, Apopka
police say they won't have a posi-
tive identification until DNA tests are
completed in about 2-3 weeks.
George went missing on February
11, 2009, while Ocasio was last seen
on May 27, 2009.
George's mother, Rachael
George, was at the scene this week
as police searched the lake and the
swampy area surrounding it. Officials
from the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement also were involved in the
search, assisting Apopka police.
"I am just glad they have started
searching again," she said.
Police are also seeking to find
out if any of the bones found belong
to Ocasio, an Ocoee woman who was
last seen leaving with James Hataway
after watching an Orlando Magic

of a human skull in the water.
"Yes, there is a skull there," Man-

As the weekend of March
10-13 approaches, organizers
of the 10th annual Apopka Fair
are putting the final touches

ronment the
area promotes,

The symbol of the ever-
growing population which has
brought diversity to Apopka
while maintaining the message
of its small town family-rooted
values, the Apopka Fair is or-
ganized by the city of Apopka,
the Apopka Area Chamber of
Commerce, and Apopka Rotary
And with the organizers'
intention to create a more fami-
ly-oriented event this year, four
to eight rides and a health fair
will be featured as primary at-
tractions this year.
"We wanted to have a lot

more in-park attractions this
year," said Gene Hampton,
chairman of the fair. "So, we
are focusing on bringing at least
three or four more major rides
to the fair this year and for them
to be prominent. It was some-
thing we did
because the
whole family
and commu-
nity can enjoy,
which is what
we wanted to

enjoy themselves and commu-
nities being able to enjoy them-

the fair before, but not as the
primary attractions. The bull-
rider and bubble-walk have not
been a part of the fair for sev-
eral years.
The amusement company,
- Paradise Amusement - pro-
viding the rides will bring three
or four more rides which will
be featured in the same manner.
However, the decision about
which rides will be brought will
not be made until the week of
the fair, due to several factors,
such as other commitments and
the condition of the rides.
A kids' workshop is also
being held by Lowe's and will
take place on Saturday.
Florida Hospital is orga-
nizing the health fair. Medi-
cal personnel will test all vital
statistics and advise attendees.
Among the statistics which will
be tested are blood pressure,
sugar levels, and hearing. A
bloodmobile will also be pres-
ent as a part of the health fair.
"This year's fair is much
More family-friendly and driv-
en by the idea of family fun and
good health, said Chris DeClue,
Rotary's advertising director of
the fair. "The fair is an event
which supports the community
we live in and in a way which
promotes the values of it. That
is because all the money raised
from the fair is given back to
the community. The fair is the
Rotary Club's biggest fundrais-
er. We are putting our energy
into this fair so it can be the
best yet and it starts with hold-
ing it for four days.
"We want to build a tradi-
tion like the Art and Foliage
Festival. We see how much

it.means to the community. It
would be a great boost to the
community to have both fairs
become long-standing tradi-
tions. We want everyone to
have fun and enjoy themselves
as a part of that tradition, like
the Apopka Art and Foliage
Festival. The preparations look
very solid as we make the fi-
nal push to get ready for the
fair, and they are moving along
But inasmuch as the new
rides and the health fair will
bring a new character to the
fair, the tried-and-tested for-
mula of the fair was built on the
Apopka lifestyle. Once again,
the attendees of the fair will
have the pleasure of experienc-
ing the excitement and enthusi-
asm its old stalwarts bring.
The official opening cer-
emonies will take place Satur-
day at 10:30 a.m. with Mayor
John Land expected to deliver a
few words. The ceremony will
include a mini-parade, featur-
ing the mayor and other digni-
taries, wending its way through
the park.
The attendees will once
again get to experience the
shine of chrome, the smell of
burning rubber, and the pop-
ping sound of revving engines
as they gaze upon the classic
automobile show.
Front and center, as well
as full throttle, a multitude of
automobiles and owners will,
put their best foot forward as a
collection of machines from the
earliest days of the industry to
the 21st century will be present.
However, it will also feature
vintage models from the 1950s,
1960s, and 1970s.
Among automobiles which

have appeared in the past are
a 1932 John Deere converted
into a roadster hot rod and a
1937 Jaguar. Multiple awards
will be voted on.
A demonstration by the
Apopka Police Department's
K-9 unit, vendors selling vari-
ous goods, food merchants,
face-painting, and other rides
return to the fair.
"The fair is an old-fash-
ioned type community gather-
ing. Apopka isn't that small
anymore, but we want to keep
-the small-town feel and the fair
is one of those events which
does that," DeClue said.
. Last year, as a part of the
fair continuing to grow, Family
Night was added. Sponsored
by Century Link, Family Night
will once again be held on
Thursday. Armbands for unlim-
ited rides will be sold for $15.
Kids Day will be held on Sun-
day. Attendees can purchase the
armbands for $18, instead of
the regular price of $20. Cou-
pons for the $2 off can be found
in The Apopka Chief and at all
Apopka schools.
"With this being the 10th
year of the fair, our goal is to
focus its growth on being more
kid-friendly," DeClue said. "It
has grown tremendously dur-
ing the first decade of its exis-
tence, but Apopka's way of life
is centered on the family and its
values are family-based. So, if
the fair is supposed to represent
Apopka, we wanted the family

make sure the area contains no
other human remains.
The lake is located south-
east of the intersection of
Ocoee-Apopka Road and
Keene Road south of Apopka
proper, but still within the city
The police chief said the
search was going to continue
until the department was satis-
fied that all the evidence has
been recovered. "I have no idea
how long we'll be out there, but
definitely the rest of this week

and probably at least into early
next week," Manley said.
Manley said the depart-
ment decided to look at the case
again because there had been
no leads in it for a year. "We
went back over the case," he
said. "As a department, we had
our senior people and myself
look at it, and we decided to re-
visit some areas. We started at
the beginning again and to just
go back and look at the thing."
A detective and a lieuten-
ant went to the lake and found
a small fragment of a bone,
which launched the search.

Chamber honors top teachers

This week, the Apopka Area Cham-
ber of Commerce honored each teacher
of the year from the schools in North-
west Orange County.
It's a yearly event the business or-
ganization hosts to recognize the ef-
forts of our top teachers. Held each year
at Trinity Christian School, the event
is one of those that makes the Apopka
area unique. This is a community and
area that has long supported its schools
in ways that most areas do not.
As Apopka has grown - slowly
many years ago and much more quick-
ly over the past two decades - one thing
that hasn't changed is how much the
community gives to its schools over
and above just paying taxes to keep the
doors open.
Our public schools have grown
from having a one-room schoolhouse a
century ago to two high schools, three
middle schools, and 10 elementary
The Chamber event recognizes our
top teachers from each school, but, as
-we all know, there are many fantastic
teachers in our schools. While only one
teacher is recognized as the Teacher of
the Year from each school, the award
could go to many others who work hard
each and every day to educate our chil-

Yes, we are very well aware that
not every teacher in every school does
a great job. Certainly, some of them do
just enough to get by, thusly cheating
their students out of that part of their
education. However, we do know that
that type of teacher is not the norm in
our area.
Instead, we are blessed to have
teachers who stay in our local schools
for years. Some of them may have gone
to Apopka schools and, after college,
return to teach the next generation, just
as the previous generation did for them.
Others may have come to. the Apopka
area thinking it was just another pit stop
on their career resume. But, they come
to love the area and its people, and they
stay to give of their knowledge to stu-
dents in the Apopka area.
We thank the members and leader-
ship of the Apopka Area Chamber of
Commerce for taking the time to honor
our area's top teachers. Throughout the
year, the Chamber also takes time to es-
pecially recognize our students and to
aid the schools through book drives and
other events.
Our schools certainly deserve the
special recognition, and we are glad the
Chamber takes the time and effort to
honor those chosen teachers with the
yearly event.

What is Richard Corbeil's background?

I was very uncomfortable with the hurtful
ideas expressed in Corbeil's Corner on Febru-
ary 18. Before I research their validity I would
like to know the background of Richard Cor-
beil. Most of the publications I am familiar with
put a bio at the end of opinion pieces so that
the reader has some idea of where the author is
coming from. What is Richard Corbeil's educa-

tional and professional background?

Editor's note: Many times through the
years, Richard Corbeil has mentioned his 1956
graduation from Harvard, as well as his life ex-
periences through work in real estate and other


Jail population drops dramatically

"Corrections" is a polite,
term for jail or prison. Gener-
ally, it is a given in corrections
that, during a recession, the
population in correction facili-
ties increases.
As the population rises in
a corrections facility, the cost
of corrections rises. In difficult
economic times, when govern-
ment revenues are in decline,
corrections costs increase.
In an unusual twist, the
population of the Orange
County Jail is in decline.
The average daily population
(ADP) of the jail in September
2010 was more than 3,800 per-
sons. In December, the ADP
was less than 3,400.
The decline in population
has been substantial. The de-
cline has not only postponed

construction of additional facil-
ities, but has permitted the clo-
sure of a unit at the jail.
Orange County has
worked to reduce the cost per
corrections client. When the
corrections population was on
the rise in the early part of the
last decade, Orange County
and its corrections partners in
the criminal justice system, the
Circuit Court, the state attor-
ney. the sheriff and the public

defender aggressively pursued
an effort to reduce the time
required to process offenders
through the systems.
Many of the improvements
in the Orange County Correc-
tions system have been devel-
oped over the past 10 years and
are coming to fruition today.
Courtrooms have been
built at the jail and judges hold
initial appearance sessions
there. The judges also hold vi-
olation of probation hearings at
the jail. These courtrooms save
huge amounts of time when
transfer to and from a central
court location would have been

I'd like to take this opportu-

through the process in the
state's capital.
Once a bill has been cre-
ated, written, and approved
for filing,,the speaker of the
House will then refer it to
pertinent committees and/or
subcommittees. First, the ap-
propriate subcommittees re-
ceive the bill, listen to tes-
timony, and then vote on it,
with the legislation then go-
ing through the same process
with its referred committees.

Should it be passed favor-
ably with or without recom-
mendation, it will then wait
for the Rules and Calendar
Committee to place it on sec-
ond reading. Second read-
ing is an important step for
the bill, as it is heard a sec-
ond time on the House floor.
Should it be heard, it may then
pass with or without amend-
ments. If it passes favorably,
it is then put on third read-
ing. After passing favorably
on third reading, it is then sent
to the Senate to be voted on
and passed concurrently. If
the Senate asks for changes,
the bill then heads back to the
House for the House to con-
cur, make additional changes,
or refuse to make the chang-

Black History Month will never be complete without GOP's Brooke

FEBRUARY 25 - This be-
ing the last week of Black His-
tory Month, I have been waiting
with bated breath again for the
media to expound on the tremen-
dous contributions of the Repub-
lican Party in ending slavery and
restoring civil rights to Black
Americans since 1854. I would
add, with every step ferociously
opposed by the Democrats in'lo-
cal, state, and congressional bod-
Most of all, as in every year,
I look for some mention of one
of the great public servants of
our nation, former Republican
U.S. Senator Edward William
Brooke of Massachusetts (1967-
1979), the first black member of
Congress since Reconstruction.
For a guy who voted for
Ed Brooke to be a U.S. senator
some 45 years ago and state at-
torney general before that, I have
little patience with a media who
ignores his existence and with
black leaders in government,
churches and society who ignore
his existence. Obviously, he has

where Dems have ruled for cons
and that Republican Brooke run-
ning in a state that's two-to-one
deep in registered Dems, didn't
win the Senate seat twice based
solely on his character and abili-
Ed Brooke made it the hard
way, his guts shown by his ser-
vice as an Army captain in
WWII behind enemy lines in Ita-
ly and being awarded the Bronze
Star. He was well educated (hard
work), articulate (hard work),

sincere (faith), and had a genuine
million-dollar smile. Born a little
later, he would have given Den-
zel Washington a run for his Hol-
lywood mile.
And, of course, he didn't
have the advantages that Dem
pols like to see garnered in great
quantities by minorities - wel-
fare, affirmative action, quotas,
sex education, free condoms,
alternative sex styles, abortion,
public housing, and all the oth-
er "Federal Plantation" good-
ies that create obedient robots at
the polls ... all the things Brooke
With the recent celebration
of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, as
usual, there was not one mention
nationally or locally that both
MLK Jr. and Sr. were staunch
Republicans who knew absolute-
ly who the segregationist party
was and is.
Just to give you a picture
of the fantastic man they ignore,
here is a brief summary:

Apopka Arts and Jazz Festival raised $20,000

By Christine Moore
School Board Member

How exciting it was to
see the look on the faces of
the young children as they
walked onto the amphitheater
stage! I also loved observ-
ing our winning poster artist
as he told his friends that at-
tendees were not just purchas-
ing copies but requesting his
signature on each poster sold.
Viewing all the student art
projects was special.
.Between ticket sales, VIP
parking, poster sales, food
concessions and commu-
nity sponsorships, the 2011
Apopka Arts and Jazz Festival
raised more than $20,000 for
fine arts programs in our local
'Apopka schools. Attendance

was also exceptional as it ex-
ceeded 3,000 people for the
Thanks are in order for
our fine arts teachers, parents,
and volunteers! They worked
selflessly selling tickets, creat-
ing and transporting artwork
to the facility, and teaching
students performance num-
bers. Parents purchased cos-
tumes, instruments and tick-
ets. In addition, they filled
several truckloads with ta-
bles, chairs, and sound equip-
ment to make the day possi-
ble. Friends and family mem-
bers volunteered all day long
working festival activities.
Most importantly, thank
you to the Apopka communi-
ty for providing financial sup-
port to underwrite festival ex-

Finally, thanks to Area
Superintendent Dr. John Ed-
wards and principals for sup-
porting the arts in these tough
economic times. Most schools
have pinched every penny try-
ing to keep these vital pro-
grams part of our school cur-
riculums. Between dwindling
state resources and increased
requirements due to the class

bottom of available funding.
Thank you to everyone for

of the arts in our children's
education. It was truly an in-
spiring day.

Artificial intelligence cannot replace human brain

By Dr. Joseph J. Horton
Center for Vision & Values

I have been using com-
puters since 1982 and still re-
call a simple artificial intelli-
gence program that ran on my
Commodore 64. I was mindful
of that this week as I watched
IBM's computer - named
"Watson'" - compete on "Jeop-

ardy!" against two human
"Jeopardy!" champions, Ken
Jennings and Brad Rutter.
I was quite impressed
by the computer, which eas-
ily beat the two most success-
ful "Jeopardy!" players of all
time. Some might see this vic-
tory of a machine over human
champions as a cause for con-
cern, perhaps thinking of Hal in

2001: A Space Odyssey. While
there may be some cause for
concern, it is not of the "Space
Odyssey" variety. In truth, hu-
mans are firmly in control of
any dangers.
Think about it: Techni-
cally, we did not see a ma-
chine beat human champions.
We saw a team of IBM com-
puter programmers and engi-

neers - all humans - beat two
human champions. Calling the
computer "Watson," we have a
tendency to personify and hu-/
manize what is only a machine.
Watson is not a conscious be-
ing. When watching Watson
play this game, we witnessed. a
machine that follows rules that

Truck accident is fatal

An Apopka man was killed
Thursday, February 24, when
the truck he was driving over-
turned on Interstate 4 in Semi-
nole County.
John Theodore White, 24,
was pronounced dead at the
scene following the accident at
8:04 a.m., according to Florida
Highway Patrol spokeswoman
Kim Montes.
She said that White was
driving a box truck carrying

flowers and plants in the cen-
ter lane of eastbound Interstate
4 when, according to witnesses,
a vehicle entered the interstate
at a high rate of speed from the
Lake Mary entrance ramp. White
steered to the left to avoid the
vehicle and struck the guardrail,
partially ejecting him.
The wreck is still under in-
vestigation, but troopers do not
have a description of the vehicle
which caused White to veer.

liking. Understood! However,
in our REPUBLIC, that's
not how it works. The way it
works is the citizens VOTE to
have people represent them
in government... If those
representatives believe the
citizens they represent don't
like a law being presented,
they should have the courage
and character to Show Up!,
and say "Yea" or "Nay", and
let the chips fall where they
may. That's their job. Just as
a teacher's job is to be in the
classroom, teaching. While
they're at it, both groups
should be happy to even have
a job, unlike many whose tax
dollars pay their salaries, and
provide their benefits.
You win some, you lose
some. They should get over
it, and get on with it.

"the church edifice had been
prepared to move to the new
site. The stained glass windows
were boarded up and braced for
the move, the steeple had been
removed from the church roof
and a banner was placed on the
side of the church proclaiming,
"The Spirit is on the Move!"
"The plan to move the
64-year-old church had been
worked out methodically by the
mover and the Vestry. The ac-
tual move covered a two-hour
time frame. The main structure
was eased on to a long-bedded
vehicle which came out onto
Route 441 from Park Avenue.
The vehicle continued east to
Forest Avenue, turned south
and traveled down Fifth Street
to Highland Avenue and finally
north on Highland onto the site.
The circuitous route was neces-
sitated to avoid overhead pow-
er lines along the way.
"Tom Reedy drove the
jeep with the steeple secured on
a small rubber-tired farm wag-
on that was obtained by Fred
Savage. Tom almost lost the
steeple when he went over the
curb as he entered the new site,
because a driveway had not yet
been installed. The old steeple
toppled menacingly, then right-
ed itself and remained intact.
This small incident portended

the ultimate fate of the steeple.
,"Daniel's Crane Service
from Orlando had lifted the
steeple down and placed it, on
the trailer. The crane operator
was to return, when the time
came to replace the steeple on
top of the church. The opera-
tor had secured the steeple with
a nylon rope and a continuous
tie of the rope, so that it was
one big long rope. He failed to
put any cross ties to keep the
rope from slipping. The stee-
ple was cradled in the ropes, so
to speak, and hoisted to the top
of the church. Very slowly, the
steeple was inched over its lo-
cation on the bell tower.
"A gust of wind came up
and the rope started slipping.
The steeple toppled from its
cradle, hit the church roof on
its descent and bounced off and
splintered on the ground.
"The steeple was rebuilt,
but there was a bright side, for
the 64-year-old symbol of wor-
ship had served its mission all
those years on Main Street."
"In less than a decade af-
ter this mission church as-
sumed parish status," Weich-
man wrote, "it met head-on the
problems incurred by increas-
ing growth and engineered a
move to a more advantageous

Saturday were always a treat growing up in Apopka

The one thing I remember
about growing up in the Apop-
ka area was that Saturday af-
ternoon was special. In those
days, you worked five-and-
one-half days a week. Satur-
day afternoon was when you
loaded up and went to town
for your weekly grocery shop-
ping or whatever. Sunday was
"a day of rest. It was the "what-
ever" that interested me the
most. Parents would give the
kids enough money to go to
the local picture show and they
would go on about their shop-
ping. The men gathered on the
corner shooting the breeze,
whittling, chewing tobacco
or, in general, doing the things
men did in those days.
Mom would do most of
her shopping at Bateman's
Food Store or get special cuts
of meat from Edgar King's

Jack Christmas
Apopka Historical Tidbits

Better Food Store. She would
browse through George Kerr's
for shoes and the Argonne
Thrift Shop for dry goods.
Now, that quarter your
parents gave you had to last for
the day. We generally went to
the movies to keep up with the
serials the theater ran. Maybe
it was the Green Hornet, The
Shadow or Dick Tracy but, in
any case, it would be contin-
ued next week and would al-
ways bring you back in or-
der to get next week's quarter.

Most of the movies were west-
erns with such stars as Hop-
along Cassidy with his side-
kick Gabby and his mighty
horse Topper. We also had Bob
Steele, Gene Autry, Roy Rog-
ers, and always a good dose of
"The Lone Ranger."
As hard as it is to believe,
back in those days, I had a
shabby head of hair that occa-
sionally needed cutting. Satur-
day was the day to go by Dale
Hall's barbershop, jump into
the chair and exclaim, "Short,
full and leave the sideburns
on." I picked that up from the
older boys ahead of me. This
was the gossip parlor. If you
wanted to know what was go-
ing on in town, you went to
Dale's barbershop.
As my brother grew old-
er, he started hanging out with
a different crowd and would

spend his Saturdays in Coot-
er Odom's Poolroom. Now
that left me all alone with the
pretty little girls in the theater.
That didn't seem to cramp my
My dad was a strong man
with his discipline. He would
always say he was leaving for
home at four o'clock. That
meant four o'clock with or
without you. Boy, it was a long
walk home, so I always tried to
make it.
Today, if you lived out
in the country and your par-
ents said load up, we are go-
ing to town, where on earth
would you be going? There is
no longer any "downtown."
Apopka seems to be fragment-
ed into-four different sections.
There is east Apopka which
encompasses the Piedmont
Plaza area. They have Albert-

son's and the movie theater.
West Apopka is around Victo-
ria Plaza with their Home De-
pot, Lowe's, Chili's, and Per-
kins. North Apopka is the Pub-
lix area at the Rock Springs
and Welch roads. South Apop-
ka has no shopping district at
this time.
Most people drive through
the "Old Downtown" on U.S.
Highway 441 and observe
very little activity on the street
and sometimes form the opin-
ion that this is Apopka. Think
I envision someday pri-
vate enterprise and the city
filling in those gaps between
North, South, West, and East,
and truly building a "do\-
town" to spend your Saturday
afternoons. 1 will have to 4i\

The set of rules that Watson
follows is incredibly complex,
and the speed at which the rules
are executed is nothing short of
awesome. However, we did not
witness a machine that thinks
for itself.

Watson did not create any
new knowledge during the ex-
hibition. Indeed, it did not ap-
pear to me that Watson had
access to more trivia than ei-
ther of the human competitors.
What was amazing about Wat-
son's programming was two
things: First, there was Wat-
son's ability to search for the

correct answer given the so-
phisticated questions posed.
"Jeopardy!" questions often re-
quire contestants to make use
of things such as humor and
idioms, for example. To search
for the answer to the questions
thus required a sophisticated
analysis of language. The sec-
ond amazing thing about Wat-

events over the past couple of weeks. On February 12, the varsity and JV winterguards
were both rated superior at the FBA solo and ensemble festival, along with four solos
and two ensembles. The varsity guard then finished third in a Florida Federation of Col-
orguards Circuit competition held at Lyman High School. On February 19, the varsity
guard took first place in Scholastic A Class at the FFCC show at Plant City High School in
Polk County with a team mid-season best score of 77. The varsity guard will compete in
its first Winter Guard International Regional competition this weekend at Cypress Creek
High school. The guard will hold fundraising nights at the Chili's restaurant on U.S. High-
way 441 in Apopka in front of Home Depot on March 8 and March 22. The guard will re-
ceive a portion of the proceeds from those who mention the AHS winterguard on those
two nights.

Tell them you saw it in Ot poplta Cijirf & The Planter

son's programming was the
speed with which the decisions
could be made sorting through
vast quantities of data faster
than the fastest humans.
During the three nights of '
the show, viewers were given
glimpses of how the computer's
programming skills might be
put to practical use. One appli-
cation I found particularly in-
triguing, was medicine. A physi-
cian might soon be able to en-
ter a patient's medical data into
a computer like Watson. This
computer would be able to rap-
idly compare a patient's data
to all known medical resourc-
es. No one person can keep up
with all new medical research. I
know people with unexplained
medical problems. A diagnos-
tic tool like Watson would al-
low my friends'.physicians to
essentially collaborate with ev-
ery medical researcher in the

world. More diagnostic myster-
ies could be solved.
Here is where the danger
of a Watson-like computer lies:
The final "Jeopardy!" question
of the first game in the two-
game match went something
like this: What is the name of
the U.S. city whose largest air-
port is named for a WWII hero
and its second largest is named
for a WWII battle? The answer
was Chicago. Watson's pro-
gram came up with Toronto.
Toronto? A U.S. city? A Wat-
son-like computer has great
promise for helping physi-
cians, but physicians must still
use their human judgment. The
medical equivalent of a wrong
answer to a trivia question
could be deadly.

cision-making machines, bad
things will happen. We have all
heard the occasional story of
the person who does something
crazy like driving the wrong
way down a one-way street,
or through a closed construc-
tion zone, because it is what
the GPS said to do. As long as
we remember that even amaz-
ing machines are still machines,
and that human judgment is
still needed, we have nothing to
fear from Watson or his proge-
ny. Education and human judg-

The Apopka Chief, February 25, 2011, Page 8A


(See Bible verse below above church list.)

here are those who see miracles only in the
extraordinary, the vastness of the cosmos or
the infinitesimal interstices of subatomic par-
ticles, while others see miracles everywhere, from
the evening sunset to the spider's web on the back
porch. They are both right: miracles are extraordi-
nary, and yet the everyday aspect of the world is
also miraculous. The world is truly miraculous in
every aspect, from its size and scope down to its
minute detail. How amazing that the sun comes up
each morning, or more accurately, that the earth
spins on its axis to face the sun each day. How
amazing that our sun makes plants grow and that
eating these plants makes animals grow, and that
animals having eaten plants will then deposit seeds
with fertilizer to keep the whole cycle going. These
everyday miracles are everywhere, if only we have
eyes to see them. The how and the why of our
world is-indeed a miracle beyond all comprehen-
sion, exceeded perhaps only by the sheer fact of
the universe itself. That the world exists at all, that
there is something rather than nothing, is that not
the greatest miracle of all?

The Apopka Chief, February 25, 2011, Page 9A

Use great techniques in dealing with the IRS

By Jeff Lareau
Special to the Chief

A droplet of sweat drips
from the ninja's brow as he
braces himself between the
ceiling and upper part of the
wall. Hovering over the sleep-
ing samurai, he watches hope-
lessly as the droplet falls to
the bed, startling the samurai
even as he wallows in drunken
slumber. The time of reckon-
ing has come, and before the
samurai has a chance to make
a noise, the ninja is upon him.
This is the moment for which
he spent all those years train-
ing. With -one accurate, blow
our dark warrior avenges his
family and reclaims the honor
of his community.

We can learn from our
ninja friend when it comes
to accuracy. He uses great
technique with his blade so
as to avoid a prolonged scuf-
ffle. With one deadly blow he
conquers his enemy, making
no sound and raising no sus-
picion. There are a number
of ways technique is impor-
tant when filing your return.
:Avoiding a scuffle is just one
,of them.

,Avoid a Scuffle
Raise your hand if you
.like getting letters from the
IRS, of course not. A great

majority of the letters taxpay-
ers receive from the IRS are
1099 or W-2 matching no-
tices. We see this most often
with people who are self em-
ployed or have investment in-
come. When the IRS has re-
ceived notification that you
had income from a specif-
ic payer but it is not includ-
ed in your return, they will
send you a notice and ask for
payment of the tax. You can
avoid this kind of correspon-
dence by taking inventory of
your income items. Wait un-
til late February to make sure
all your 1099s and W-2s have
come in. If you are unsure you
have received everything, call
the IRS and ask them for an
income transcript. Then you
will know exactly what cards
they are holding.

Avoid Delayed Refunds
There are many mistakes
that can be avoided just by do-
ing a really thorough review of
your return before sending it
out. Some common mistakes
are misspelling of names, in-
coriect social security num-
bers, computation errors, and
even forgetting to sign the re-
turn. One mistake that will re-
ally give you a headache is if
you give the IRS the wrong
bank account numbers for di-
rect deposit. The answer to
avoiding these types of prob-
lems is to take your time. If

you have a tax preparer, do
your own review before sign-
ing the return. That extra five
minutes of time could save
you a ton of frustration if your
refund gets delayed.

Avoid Paying Back your Re-
There is something worse
than paying a good chunk of
money to the IRS on April 15.
Repaying a refund you incor-
rectly received and have al-
ready spent is even more pain-
ful. There are some key areas
where people make mistakes
that cause them to understate
their tax liability. Filing sta-
tus is a big one, and so is the
Earned Income Credit. It's
important to recognize that
these are two fairly compli-
cated tax areas that are com-
mon on otherwise simple tax
returns. They are also areas
that can make a big difference
in the size of your refund.
Make sure you have an ac-
curate understanding of these
things and you can rest easi-
er knowing that your refund is
yours to.keep.
As is the case with all
things, the saga of the dark
ninja warrior must come to
an end. I picture him walking
home in the moonlight know-
ing that his fight is over for
now, but that he will have to
fight again. So goes our con-
stant struggle to represent

ourselves fairly and success-
fully with the IRS.
In these past four articles,
we have learned the Way of
the Ninja: Honor, Patience,
Stealth, and Technique. We
have learned how to apply
these ninja traits in our deal-
ings with the IRS, and like the
dark warrior, we will be victo-

Continued from page 4A

*es. If the House concurs, the
,bill heads to enrollment and
,is considered successfully
passed. If the House concurs
;with changes or chooses not
,to concur, then a House and
:Senate conference committee
is formed in order to have a
Majority report the bill as fa-
vorable in the form of a large
Conference report that may
contain several other bills..
Should this occur, the bill will
then be enrolled and be con-'
,sidered successfully passed.
Upon enrollment, the
:governor is presented with

the language and has a certain
number of days to sign or veto
or not sign at all and allow
it to become law without his
signature. Should it be vetoed,
it may be overturned with a
2/3 vote in each chamber. De-
pending on the effective date
and after surviving this entire
process, the bill will then be-
come law.
As you can see, this pro-
cess is not simple nor is it

way, there are countless meet-

'Mr. Joe' encouraged youth

Concerned, Compassionate
and Dedicated:
Mr. Joe Cauley, a soul
brother and a native of South
Carolina, ventured into Apopka
shortly after being discharged
from a branch of the U.S. mili-
tary after World War I in 1918.
Mariy citizens referred favor-
ably by calling him "Mr. Joe."
Mr. Batty Stokes, an acquain-
tance, who, at that point in time,
was residing in Apopka and em-
ployed at Amos Starbird & Son
Sawmill, was instrumental in
Cauley's decision to move to
Although Mr. Cauley could
not read or write, even up to his
demise in 1961, he had what the
old timers called mother's wit,
which enabled use a lot
of discernment in his decisions.
Starbird's sawmill employed
him in 1918 as a stationary boil-
er fireman for approximately
three years prior to the purchas-
ing of the crate mill by Bennett
Land Sr., who, at that time, was
a renowned civil engineer af-
filiated with the Plant Railroad
System. Mr. Joe remained em-
ployed with C.L & V.C., until
In and around 1925, Mi-
chael Gladden Jr., reopened his
father's grocery store and hired
Cauley part-time, which even-
tually became full-time prior to

Bits 'n' Tips

the economic depression of the
1920s. Cauley's employment
tenure lasted with the Gladdens
more than 35 years until his de-
mise in 1962.
Other than being the chief
cook, dishwasher and store
clerk, he had the distinction of
being the Apopka ghetto's num-
ber one church bell tolling in-
dividual, announcing many cit-
izen's demise by tolling the
number of rings relative to the
deceased's age. Also, many
families in the Apopka ghetto
would employ him to dig graves
for their departed ones. Cauley
was affiliated with numerous re-
ligious organizations, fraternal
societies and Negro Business
Men of Apopka.
"Mr. Joe" put forth a tre-
mendous deal of time, concrete
thoughts and monies encourag-
ing young citizens, including
Slim, to make something out of
life that will. be beneficial to the
system of things.

Orlando Heart Specialists offers new

tips to help promote heart health

In the United States,
cardiovascular disease is the
number one cause of death
and stroke is the number
three cause of death!
At Orlando Heart
Specialists, they recog-
nize that the best defense
against heart disease and
stroke is your lifestyle and
therefore they are commit-
ted to education and aware-
ness in their practice and
community outreach.
The consequences of
poor lifestyle choices are
staggering and it is becoming
more and more widespread.
In fact, 65% of all adults in
the U.S. are obese or over-
weight. The rate of inci-
dence and the age at which
heart complications begin
have dramatically changed in
the past ten years and, with
childhood obesity increas-
ing, are only going to get

Specialists practice is
dedicated to teaching their
patients about the modifi-
able risk factors and provid-
ing them with the knowledge
they need to proactively
take control of their health
and ensure an optimum
quality of life in the future.
They would like to sup-
ply you with some quick and
easy tips on the modifiable
risks that you can control
and take responsibility for as
promoted by the American
Heart Association.

Manage Blood Pressure
High blood pressure
is when the blood running
through your arteries flows
with too much force and
puts pressure on your ar-
teries, stretching them past
their healthy limit and caus-
ing microscopic tears. The
body then kicks into injury-
healing mode to repair these
tears with scar tissue. Un-
fortunately, that scar tissue
then traps plaque and white
blood cells, which can form
into blockages, blood clots,
and hardened, weakened ar-
To control your blood
Pressure: eat a heart-healthy
diet, which may include re-
ducing salt; enjoy regular
physical activity; maintain
a healthy weight; manage
stress; use positive self-talk;

personal interest; get daily
relaxation; limit alcohol; and

Lose Weight
Among Americans age
20 and older, 145 million are
overweight or obese (BMI
of 25.0 kg/m2 and higher).
This is of great concern,
especially since obesity is
now recognized as a major,
independent risk factor for
heart disease. If you have
too much fat - especially
if a lot of it is at your waist
- you're at a higher risk for
such health problems as high

State park will

The fifth annual Wekiva Paintout will
be held March 7-12 at Wekiwa Springs
State Park in Apopka.
The event features plein air painting,
which is painting outdoors.
"We invited 32 of the best national
landscape artists to paint in the park and
along the river for an entire week," an
event spokesman said.
"Most Plein Air painters are nature
lovers, using the great outdoors as their
primary studio, trying to capture our rap-
idly vanishing landscape to preserve it for
future generations," the spokesman said.
"They learn to adapt quickly to changes in
light and weather, capturing shadows be-
fore the sun inevitably shifts, literally try-
ing to harness the natural light and colors
of'a specific moment in nature, and trans-
fer it directly onto the canvas. This style
of painting allows the public to interact
with the artists while they paint and offers
a great opportunity to purchase an original
work of art from a well-known artist.

Lake Brantley were played in
the Big Blue Bonanza, an ear-
ly-season tournament hosted
by Lake Brantley. Edgewater
hosted Apopka in the Wednes-

Apopka wrestlers

grapple at state

By Neal Fisher
Apopka Chief Staff

With one of its, wrestlers
placing in the top half of its
weight class Saturday, Febru-
ary 19, at the state champion-
ship meet, the Apopka High
wrestling team ended its most
successful season under the
guidance of coach Todd Hauser
on a positive, building-for-
next-year note.
Tim Te and Rene Rivera
qualified for the state champi-
onship meet. Competing in the
125-pound weight class, Rivera
won two of his matches and
ended in a tie for seventh place,
one position short of placing
and becoming the first Blue
Darter to accomplish that honor
in more than 20 years.
Te, a senior wrestling in
what most consider the most
difficult of the 14 weight class-
es, failed to win a match.
"Even though he didn't do
well both times he competed in
the state championship meet,
Te has been the face of our
program and a huge reason the
program has advanced to where
'it is now, definitely this being
the best year we have had team
wise since I became coach,"

Hauser said. "He has been a
great representation of what
Apopka wrestling is about and
why we have grown.
"He leaves a great legacy
for us to build the future of
the program around, which is
now about taking that next step
of becoming a consistent con-
tender, both individually and
as a team. The same is true of
Rivera, but he is returning. So,
he will still be physically here
for the wrestlers to see and talk
to. Having both of them qualify
not once, but twice is a huge
boost to the program and, once
again, taking that next step. It
shows wrestling in the state
championship meet is attain-
able and having Rivera back is
a visible reminder."
Rivera came from behind
to win his first match against
Audrick Barr of Tampa Cham-
berlain. After the first period,
Rivera was trailing 4-1. How-
ever, he chose the top position
to start the second period and
parlayed it into a power-half
pinning maneuver. He then took
on Khadeem Stanton of Miami
Southridge, who claimed sec-
ond place. Rivera lost by an 8-1

Bayne, 20, wins

Daytona 500 on day

filled with nostalgia

t's no real secret that NASCAR has lost
some of its spark in the 10 years since
Dale Earnhardt, its biggest star, died in a
crash during the Daytona 500. TV ratings
have dropped along with at-track attendance.
Some of the most disgruntled fans seem to be
the old core audience, who long for the days
when NASCAR was a Southern sport, racing
at tracks in the South with drivers and teams
from the South competing for wins each week.
Now there are more Sprint Cup drivers front
California than from any state in the South.
But after Sunday's Daytona 500, the old
core crowd ought to be happy.
For starters, Dale Earnhardt Jr., a North
Carolina native, won the pole for the 500 and
was a contender for a time.
Then, as the laps wound down in the 53rd
running of the Great American Race, two sons
of the South were running first and second,
and the second-place car belonged to the iconic
Wood Brothers, who once dominated the super-
speedways but hadn't won a race since 2001.
Unadilla, Ga.'s David Ragan, driving for
Roush Fenway Racing, had the lead, and
Knoxville, Tenn.'s Trevor Bayne, who turned
20 the day before and was running in just his
second Sprint Cup race ever, trailed him in
the Wood Brothers Ford, which was painted
in the same scheme as the Mercury that the
legendary South Carolinian David Pearson
drove for the Woods back in the 1970s.
Ragan dropped out of contention after he
was penalized for changing lanes too soon on
a restart, leaving his one-time drafting part-
ner Bayne to fend for himself in a green-
white-checkered-flag dash to the finish.
But Bayne got a mighty drafting push from
veteran Bobby Labonte, a Texan, who was in
contention for the win for the first time in
quite a while, and held the lead as the leaders
took the white flag.
Then Carl Edwards closed in and gave
Bayne just enough of a push to send the young-
ster and his 61-year-old race team to Victory
Lane in NASCAR's biggest race of the year.
And for the sentimental fans in the crowd,
there was nothing more heartwarming than

500 Sunday at Florida's Daytona International Speedway. (NASCAR photo)

born. And he seemed humbled to be a part of
such an elite group of drivers.
'That's a cool list," he said. "It's incredible to
be a part of this group, it really is."
But he wasn't just looking back.
"To be added to that list, period, is crazy,
especially at our first attempt," he said.
'That's just insane. It sets the bar for this
team. We don't expect to win them all, but we
know we can now, that's for sure."
For Ragan, who recovered to finish 14th
after serving his I.', ialtv, the setback was
tough to take. And he said he's not convinced
he broke any rules.
"I know what the rules are," he said. "I felt
like the leader had the start of the race. I felt
like we fired, and I started to move down right
before the start-finish line, but I don't think I
crossed that invisible line that separates the
top and the bottom ...
"It'll take us a long time to forget this one,
but we'll move on to Phoenix, and the sooner
we can win one, the sooner we can forget it."
And he pointed out that without Bayne
pushing him, he wouldn't have been in the lead
to start with. "Trevor did a great job," he said.
Veteran Terry Labonte, who wound up one
spot behind Ragan, summed up the feelings of
many in NASCAR with his comments about
the Wood Brothers and their big win. 'Tm so
happy for those guys," he said. "That's just a
great family, and they've done so much for the
sport. I sure am glad to see them in Victory

to see Glen Wood, the 85-year-old patriarch of
the Wood Brothers race team, being escorted
to Victory Lane by none other than his team's
onc-time rival Richard Petty.
'I walked in Victory Lane with Richard
Petty and Edsel Ford and my dad," said Eddie
Wood, Glen Wood's son and one of the current
co-owners of the team. "I don't know how
much better that can get."
With his victory, Bayne joins A.J. Foyt, Cale
Yarborough, Tiny Lund and David Pearson as
drivers who have won the Daytona 500 in the
Woods' No. 21 car. But his win is the first in
the 500 for the Woods since Pearson's victory
in 1976, which was 15 years before Bayne was

Jarrett remembers Earnhardt
Perhaps the most poignant tribute to the
late Dale Earnhardt on the 10th anniversary
of his death came from Ned Jarrett, who is a
member of the second class of the NASCAR
Hall of Fame.
Jarrett was asked about the day back in 1993
when he was broadcasting the Daytona 500 and
cheered his son Dale Jarrett to victory over
Earnhardt. He said he initially regretting letting
his bias show to a national TV audience.
"I think the thing that I remembered when I
left the race track that day was the fact that I
had thrown Dale Earnhardt into the river,"
Jarrett said. "I had an opportunity on national
television to cheer my son on. I've come to peace
with that, especially the next week after talking
to Dale Earnhard."
The two-time Cup champion who went on to a
distinguished broadcasting career said he
sought out Earnhardt the next week at
Rockingham, N.C., to apologize.
"I told him, 'It's not fair on national television
to be rooting for my son and rooting against
you," Jarrett said. "But Dale stuck his finger
right into my chest and said "Don't you ever for-
get, rm a daddy too.'
"So that took away that bad feeling I had
when I walked away from here that night."

Date set for 2012 Daytona 500
Mark your calendars now. The 2012 Daytona
500 will be pushed back a week to Feb. 26, a
move that eliminates the off week early in the
season. Track president Joie Chitwood made the
announcement early as a favor to Ifns who make
their reservations a year in advance.
"This move shortens the racing season by one
week, which is something the teams and competi-
tors will surely enjoy, and it eliminates the off-
weekend typically scheduled in March, which
many fans and media partners have said created
a drop in momentum in the early part of the rac-
ing season," Chitwood said in a statement

Women drivers make inroads
Some of the highlights of Speedweeks at
Daytona were provided by female drivers.
Jennifer Jo Cobb's sixth-place finish behind
Michael W4ltrip in Friday's Camping World
Truck Series race
was the best ever by
a female in that divi-
sion. And on
i Saturday, Danica
Patrick led a lap in
the Nationwide
Series race, becom-
Sing the first woman
to lead a lap at
Daytona in a major
NASCAR race, and
finished 14th after
Qualifying fourth.
Sara Christian,
Jennifer Jo Cobb who raced in the
(NASCAR photo) series now known as
Sprint Cup in its
inaugural season of 1949, holds the record for
finishes by a female in that division. She fin-
ished sixth at Langhorne, Pa., and fifth at
Pittsburgh. Janet Guthrie was sixth at.Bristol
in the 1977 Volunteer 400.
Former Nationwide Series driver Patty Moise
has come as close as any female to winning a
major NASCAR race In 1987, she was leading
with five laps to go at Road Atlanta but wound up
losing to Morgan Shepherdt, who ran her down by
cutting across one of the corners, a move that
wouldn't have been allowed in sports car racing,
where Moise developed her road-racing skills.

Younger drivers benefitting from new rules

NASCAR's new rule prohibiting drivers from com-
peting for championships in more than one division
was enacted to give up-and-coming drivers a chance
to emerge from the shadows of the double-dipping
Sprint Cup drivers who have been dominating the
Nationwide and Camping World Truck series.
On Saturday at Daytona International Speedway,
the new policy began paying off for some of those
youngsters. It helped that they ran up front in the
Drive4COPD 300, but because of the new rules, the
top five in the Nationwide Series points standings
reads more like a "Who's He?" than a "Who's Who" of
Landon Cassill, by virtue of his third-place finish in
the season opener, is the new Nationwide Series
points leader, but that lead likely won't last long
because he's not scheduled to race this week-at
Phoenix. That puts Reed Sorenson in the driver's
seat, so to speak, as his fifth-place finish at Daytona
has him second in the standings, just two points
behind Cassill. Jason Leffler is third, followed by
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Trevor Bayne, all of whom
finished in the top 10 at Daytona on Saturday.
Sprint Cup regular Tony Stewart won the
Drive4COPD 300 with a dramatic last-lap pass. It
was his sixth career triumph in. that race and his
fourth in a row. But Stewart and his fellow Cup driv-
ers, like runner-up Clint Bowyer, won't earn driver
points in the Nationwide Series. That means drivers
like Sorenson, who face an uphill battle on the track
against the Cup drivers and their Cup-level experi-
ence and equipment, can still make gains on the
championship side.
"It's going to be like that all year," Sorenson said.
"Even though the new points system is in play, we'll
be racing against Cup guys. That's part of it. It's fun.

We're going to get beat by them sometimes and we're
going to beat them sometimes.
"We have to pay attention to points as we do that."
Cassill expressed frustration that he and some of
the other young drivers often lose rides to veteran
drivers before they have a chance to prove what they
can do.
"I had two or three I can think of- full-time ride
opportunities in the truck and Nationwide Series this
year - that were passed over for veteran drivers," he
said. "It's tough. I want to be able to put myself in
front of these sponsors and be like, 'Guys, I bring ener-
gy, I bring fire. I'm talented. That's why I'm here.'
"Just like Clint [Bowyer] when he was coming up
through Nationwide, and Reed [Sorenson]. He won
those races in Nashville in that Ganassi car.
"That's what I can do if you put me in these cars.
But the sponsors want the drivers that have been
used over and over again."

The Apopka Chief, February 25, 2011, Page 3B

Apopka H

By Neal Fisher
Apopka Chief Staff

As the boys lacrosse sea-
son begins this week, one only
needs to know how the last two
have ended for the Apopka Blue
Darters to understand what the
2011 means to the program.
Two years ago, Apopka
lost to Lake Brantley in the
round of eight during the FH-
SAA's postseason tournament
by a 20-7 score. Last year, the
rematch was decided with three
seconds left in the game in the
favor of Lake Brantley by an
11-10 score.
During that same span,
Apopka has compiled a 24-8
record and claimed the last two
regular-season and postseason
District 6 championships.
"This season is about un-
finished business," Apopka
coach Mike Frost said. "The
unfinished business not only
specifically and directly refers
losing to Lake Brantley the
last two years, but in the more
general sense, of being good
enough to do more than we
have. We are anxious to start
the season and take care of that
unfinished business. We hope
and want to face Lake Brantley
again. Our season is not entire-
ly focused on it, because obvi- '
ously there are other elements
playing a role in it.
"But it is about as big as
a focus can be after what has
happened the last two years.
We already had a roster capable
of going deep into the playoffs
and compete at a high level,
with the state championship
teams. It has only grown and,
as such, put itself in the posi-
tion to be an even bigger threat
to win against those teams. We
played all of them during the

off-season. We didn't win all
of them, but we won some and
were competitive in the other
games. They were decided in
the final minutes. It put us in
that same group."
Frost listed Lake Brantley,
Lake Highland, Bishop Moore,
and Winter Park as the teams
which make up that group of
elite teams. Lake Brantley has
claimed the District 5 cham-
pionship every year since la-
crosse became a FHSAA-sanc-
tioned and -championship sport
(2008) and have advanced to at
least the state semifinals every-
year. The first two years, Lake
Brantley advanced to the cham-
pionship game.
Lake Highland claimed its
district championship the past
two years, and the Highlanders
advanced to the state champi-
onship game last year and the
state semifinals in 2009.
Last year and in 2008,
Winter Park won the District 8
championship. Last year, Win-
ter Park lost to Lake Highland
during the round of 16.
In 2008, Winter Park lost
to Lake Brantley in the state
The 2009 and 2008 sea-
sons saw Bishop Moore claim
the District 7 championship.
The 2009 season ended with
an overtime loss to Lake High-
land in the first round of the
state postseason championship
tournament. The 2008 season
ended during the round of eight
to Winter Park.
Last year, Lake Highland
and Bishop Moore were both
in District 7. Lake Highland
defeated Bishop Moore in the
district final. In 2009, as well as
2008, both Lake Highland and
Winter Park were in District 8.
Both years, the two teams met

Everyone is unselfish enough
to work to get open without the
Frost continued to say the
players trust their teammates
and that they will be rewarded
for the hard work they put in
Sto get open with good passes
which will put them in position
to score.
"The ability to get open
and pass has led to us being
able to be patient with the ball,"
Frost said. "We have the luxury
of looking for a shot we can
make when we take it, not nec-
essarily just one we can take.
We wanted to set a standard this
year of making a high percent-
age of the shots we take. We
use a motion offense and the
reason teams use it is because
it creates a high percentage rate
of shots made to (those) taken.
SThat is what it takes to beat and
be one of the top teams.
"Another character is the
ability to score lay-ups, goals
which come from attack-
ers picking up loose balls in
front of the goal and scoring
on them. We don't score a lot
of them, just two or three per
game. But they have come at
critical times. Scoring those
goals when we do adds another
dimension to our game."
Even though the team lost
three of its leading scorers from
a team which averaged over 20
goals per game, as well as the
anchor of its defense from last
year, Apopka is perhaps even
more capable of those pos-
sibilities, or at the very least,
there won't be a drop-off. With
the new starts seeing significant
time in critical situations last
year, their ability to contribute
within the context of how the
team plays is just as developed
as the previous seniors. Frost
says they are the best attackers
in the state.
Up front, a trio of seniors
who were among the teams top
scorers, Weston Spangler, Bren-

dan Lynch, and Garret Holmes
line up at the attacker positions.
Deeper and more athletic than
last year, the midfield consists
of Nick Orem, Cole Brubaker,
Alex Catron, Houston McCon-
nell, Sean O'Shea, and Garrett
A sophomore, Speck is the
only non-senior
This year's defense is also
capable of bettering last year's
average of giving up less than
six goals per game. Ryan Mat-
thews, Brandon Lopez, Ian
Speck, and Austin Knuth will
man the backfield. A junior,
Knuth is the only non-senior in
that group.
Taking over in the net is
another senior, Eric Davidson.
The stingy defenses have
been coached by assistant Rob-
ert "Doc" Lynch. Frost referred
to his abilities and communica-
tion with the players as very
important to the team develop-
ing a championship defense, as
well as his work in preparing it
on a daily basis for their games.
"The first week will be the
most'difficult and it will set the
tone for us," Frost said. "We
will find out a lot about us dur-
ing the first week. We have an
opportunity to set a positive
tone, as far as getting ready
for the postseason and that
possible match-up with Lake
Brantley. We have the opportu-
nity to play hard and continue

the course of the season after a
good start, instead of having to
overcome a bad start."
The final inning of the
game against Lake Brantley
began looking like the victory
was simply a matter of the Pa-
triots getting the final three outs
and it began with Lake Brant-
ley pitcher Sean Garrity induc-
ing the first Mustang batter to
hit a fly ball to centerfield. But
then, a critical mistake turned
what appeared to be a victory
into an extra-inning game as
second baseman Tanner Black-
man bobbled Cody Minchey's
ground ball. A walk to Dario
Saunders followed to put run-
ners on first and second base.
S Despite the error, it still
looked like the Patriots were
going to be able to secure the
victory as Matthew Jacobs
caught the next batter's foul
fly ball. However, Jace Her-
rera would not let his team
fall and he belted a line drive
single through the middle of
the infield. The single probably
would have scored Minchey
from second if the ball was
fielded cleanly, but when the
ball rolled under Austin Lu-
eck's glove to the outfield wall,
Saunders scored to tie the game
at 3-3. Herrera tried to score
but was thrown out at home.
After being down to its last
out, Wekiva then won the game
in the ninth inning. Saunders
struck out, but reached base as
the third strike was dropped.
The next .batter, Kevin Brant-
ley, drew a walk. Saunders
came home on Greg Amheim's
single over the middle of the
infield. Then, what turned out
to be the winning run came
home two batters later as Dar-
ryl Knight's grounder slowed
down about two-thirds of the
way down the third base line.
He beat out the throw to first
for an infield single, as Brant-
ley crossed the plate. Again, the
single came with two outs.
Mitchell Cardoza, who
had come in to pitch for the
Mustangs during the seventh
inning, got the first two outs
of the bottom of the ninth in-
ning. But the game couldn't
have an anti-climatic ending
and he gave up two consecutive
singles. Then, with two strikes
on Haecker, he uncorked a wild
pitch which allowed the Patri-
ots to cut the lead to one run
On the next pitch, Haeck-
er lined a sinking liner about
a foot to the right of second
base. And, although the ball
was quickly hit toward sec-
ond base, a diving Brantley
snagged it about two inches off
the ground, as it was only fit-
ting the game ended on its most
dramatic play, because it was
the one which determined the
"We hit the ball hard and
pitched well all game," En-
trekin said.. "We kept doing
both all night and it eventu-
ally worked out in the end. The
pitching staff did what it is sup-
posed to. It kept us in the game.
It had some mistakes, but it
never allowed Lake Brantley to'
put the game away. The pitch-
ers gave up only six hits in nine
innings. Then, we got our hits
when we had to."
Lake Brantley opened
the scoring with a run during
the first as Eric Bauer singled
and then two batters later, Ja-
cobs slashed a triple down the
right field line. The lead was
increased to two runs during
the next inning as Carl Chester
singled. He then stole second,

went to third on a groundout,
and came home on a wild pitch.
The Mustangs got on the
board during the third and set
up the dramatic finish. Saun-
ders reached base on a fielder's
choice and came home on a
double by Brantley.
The lead was re-estab-
lished at two runs during the
sixth. Haecker drew a leadoff
walk. He came home on a balk.
Only four of the nine com-
bined runs were earned.
Herrera went the first five
innings in his regular-season
debut. Logan Dyer, David Vol-
pe, and then Cardoza followed
him to the mound.
The Patriots used a total of
six pitchers, starting with Tyler
Warmoth. He was replaced af-
ter 3-2/3 innings of work. Jo-
seph Hall followed him to the
mound. The other Patriots who
toed the rubber were Matthew
McCloskey, Zach Stewart,
Garrity, and William King.
Wekiva totaled 10 hits.
Brantley and Herrera had two'
each. Jacobs led Lake Brantley
with a triple and double.
"It is a big victory for
the team, a signature one, one
which provides credibility for
a tradition to be built on," En-
trekin said. "For me personally,
it is big,'because I came from
Lake Brantley. I began my ca-
reer here and learned a lot from
Mike Smith (Lake Brantley's
long time coach)."

Wekiva 7, Seminole 4
The trend of coming from
behind as Wekiva furthered its
good, start, as well as winning
streak, continued as the Big
Blue Bonanza came to an end
on Saturday, February 19, with
a 7-4 victory over Seminole
"We came into this game
thinking they deserved a lot of
credit, a team not to be taken
lightly" Entrekin said. "They
lost both of their first two
games by one run and there
were a lot of runs, so, we knew
we were going to have to out-
score them if we were going to
Unlike their first two
games when the Mustangs
mounted the comeback during
the final inning, it came during
the third inning in this game.
Sending 12 batters to the plate,
the Mustangs scored all seven
of its runs during the third giv-
ing the team a 7-3 lead and then
they held off Seminole's late
inning rally.
It began with Minchey
stroking a double down the
right field line. Saunders then
hit a pop fly to the middle of the
infield, but it was misjudged by
the right side and it dropped in
front of Taylor Morrison.
A double followed off the
bat of Brantley to make the
score 3-1. Herrera knocked in
the second run with sacrifice

fly to left field and the game
was tied at 3-3 when Arnheim
lined a single over second base
and it fell in front of the diving
centerfielder. The string of hits
continued with Knight's single.
Another single, this one by
Greg Matthews, gave Wekiva
the lead. Four more singles fol-
lowed to up the lead to 7-3.
The Seminoles scored a
run off starter David Volpe dur-
ing the fifth to cut the lead to
7-4. With the bases loaded, Jeff
Moss lifted a sacrifice fly to left
field. Logan Dyer took over on
the mound for Volpe at the start
of the sixth He gave up a two
singles, hit a batter, and issued
a walk, which resulted in two
more Seminole runs.
Entrekin brought in, Mat-
thews, who struck out the next
two batters to end the inning.
Mitchell Cardoza then struck
out the side in the seventh to se-
cure the Mustang's third victo-
ry of the season. Taylor Morri-
son reached base after striking
out due to the third strike being
dropped, but he was thrown out
trying to steal second base.
"Volpe had a rough first in-
ning, but he settled down and
had only one bad at-bat, the
home run," Entrekin said. "He
gave us five innings, which
is what a team needs from its
starter. Other than the home
run, he pitched OK and did
what he had to to put us in a
position to win. For the most
part, he and the relievers did
their job.
"We got off to a slow start
at the plate, but we started hit-
ting the ball well during the
third. We got some good swings
on the ball. When we are on at
the plate, we are a hard team to
Seminole drew first blood,
scoring in the opening inning.
Ian Dailey led of the game with
a single. He advanced to third
base on another single by Drew
Montero and a walk to Branden
Stiffey. The run came in on a
balk. The Seminole lead was
increased to 3-0 when Montero
singled and the Stiffey hit a
home run during the third.
Volpe gave up six hits.and
walked three while striking
out four. The first run was un-
earned. Wekiva's pitching staff
scattered a total of nine hits
and walked four, but struck out
The Seminoles' Josiah
Candelaria pitched the first
2-1/3 innings. He did not issue
a walk, but failed to strike out
a batter and, most importantly,
gave up eight hits. Alan Drake
and Josh wood followed him
to the mound. The Mustangs
belted out 13 hits.
"We won three games
this week and they were on
the road," Entrekin said. "It
is difficult to win three games
on the road at any level. That
is huge for this season and the

program. We got some timely
hitting and pitching during all
three games. It was very good
week for us. It was an opportu-
nity to gain a lot of confidence.
A season isn't made or broken
by the first three games, but
again it makes life a lot easier
when a team gets off to a good
start, when it doesn't have to
overcome a bad start."

Wekiva 6, East River 0
After winning its first four
games against programs with
a rich tradition of winning
championships, Wekiva (5-0)
was the favorite heading into
its first game against a team
not considered a power in its
respective class. And on the
strength of a superb pitching
performance, Wekiva defeated
the East River Falcons 6-0 on
Tuesday, February 22.
"We (the coaching staff),
are extremely happy with the
pitching staff," Entrekin said.
"We shut out a team which was
averaging eight runs a game.
Winning starts with pitching
and today was a good example
of it. It kept us in the game until
we got our offense going. We
didn't have a very good game
offensively, so, we had to rely
on the pitching today."
Once again, Wekiva's
pitching staff was impressive
as Matthews pitched the first
six innings. He gave up one hit
and two walks and struck out
nine. Cardoza pitched the final
inning, striking out two.
"We wanted to come out
and pick up some runs, but
we got off to slow start at the
plate," Matthews said. "The
hitting the last couple of games
hasn't been as good as it should
be. We.haven't been getting as
many runs as we should be, so,
I wanted to get as many quick
innings as I could and was able
to. Those three up-and-down
innings got us going at the
plate. It gave us some momen-
tum when he headed into the
dugout. My curveball wasn't
on today, so, I had to rely on the
fastball and changeup, but they
were good enough to keep East
River off balance."
With the performance
of the pitching staff, Wekiva
scored all it would need in the
first inning, taking advantage of
a timely hit and couple of East
River miscues. Saunders led
off the inning with a walk. He
advanced to second on a sacri-
fice fly off the bat of Brantley
and then stole third base. Three
batters later, on the fourth ball
to Arnheim, catcher Alex Per-
ryman dropped it and Saunders
came home.
The lead was increased to
two during the third as Brant-
ley singled and then scored
when Edwin Suarez decided
to try to tag Herrera who was
running from 'second. Herrera
was caught in a rundown and
eventually tagged out, but not
before Brantley scored.
A triple and single off the
bat of Knight, as well as Sala-
zar during the third upped the
lead to 3-0. The Mustangs then
scored three unearned tallies
during the fifth to close out the
East River's Xavier Dixon
pitched a good game, as well,
but didn't get much help from
his teammates. He pitched the
first 5-1/3 innings. Only one of
the six runs were earned as his
team committed four errors.
Wekiva totaled six hits
with Knight and Salazar led the
team with two apiece. Brant-
ley and Matthews got the other

The Blue Darters scored the
only run of the game when T.J.
Renda picked up an RBI to
score Jamie Calderon.
In addition to handcuffing
the Fightin' Seminoles on just
one hit, Hanes walked only one
batter, but recorded six strike-
outs en route to his complete-
game victory.
In all its games, Apopka

As it did in the season-
opening victory against Del-
tona, Apopka had to come from
behind to record the 4-2 win
over Lake Brantley.
The Patriots jumped out
with two runs in the first inning
against Jarrod Petree (1-0), but
he settled down, blanking Lake
Brantley the rest of the way.
Meanwhile, the Apopka
offense took some time to get
going, as'the Darters recorded
a pair of runs in the third inning
and two more in the sixth.
In picking up the victory,
Petree gave up just five hits,
walked none, and fanned six
Lake Brantley batters. Renda
picked up Apopka's only RBI,
as the Patriots committed three
"We're putting ourselves
in position to score runs,"
Schall said. "Even though we
have a lot of inexperienced hit-
ters as far as varsity games go,
we're putting the ball in play."
The win over the perennial
powerful Patriots was an im-
portant one for the young Blue
Darters who have a coach in his
first year at Apopka.
"To be able to win that
game, validates what we're
saying (to the Apopka play-
ers)," Schall said. "We have
good kids and they work hard
and have good chemistry.

"We're going against some
teams that have more talent than
we do," Schall said. "For us to
be able to beat those teams, we
have to do what we did (against
Lake Brantley). If we do that,
we can beat anybody we play.
In the 4-3 victory over
Edgewater, Apopka jumped out
to a quick 1-0 lead, only to give
it up before regaining the lead
later in the game.
Hanes picked up his sec-
ond win of the young season,
hurling four innings. He al-
lowed five hits, walked three,
and struck out four Edgewater
batters. Colten Graham record-
ed' the save when he pitched
the final three innings, giving
up three hits, but walking none
and striking out four.
The Blue Darters grabbed'
a 1-0 lead in the top of the first,
but the host Eagles flew back
in front with a pair of runs in
the bottom of the first inning.
Apopka tallied three times in
the top of the fourth inning and
although Edgewater scored
once in the bottom of the
fourth, the Blue Darters held on
for the victory.
Erik Escobedo led Apopka
with two RBI, while Cameron
Hoffarth and Petree also had an
RBI. Apopka had nine hits with
Jarid Jewett and Petree picking
up two each. One of Jewitt's
was a double. Escobedo also
had a double for the Blue Dart-

Lou and Diann Haubner of
Apopka received the Wild Tur-
key Bourbon Rare Breed Soci-
ety Award at the National Wild
Turkey Federation's (NWTF)
35th annual National Conven-
tion and Sport Show February
18 in Nashville, Tenn.
The award, sponsored by
Wild Turkey Bourbon, is pre-
sented each year to a volunteer
who embodies grassroots dedi-
cation to wild turkey conser-
vation, as well as NWTF pro-
The NWTF is a nonprofit
conservation organization that
works to conserve wild turkeys
and preserve the American her-
itage of hunting.
"We usually reserve this
award for a single, outstanding
volunteer," said NWTF Chair-
woman of the Board Peggy
Anne Vallery. "But Lou and
Diann are an inseparable team,
who work tirelessly promoting
NWTF conservation and wild
turkey hunting through one of
the most successful Hunting
Heritage Super Fund banquets
in North America. Both have
earned this award, and we are
proud to present it to them as a

Diann and Lou Haubner of Apopka show the national award
they received from the National Wild Turkey Federation.

"Winning the award is
overwhelming," Lou Haubner
said. "It is a great honor that
other people, who have done

so much more than we have,
would put us on the same ped-
estal that they are on. We're
humbled that we were chosen."

The Apopka-based Wekiva
Springs Strutters, led by the
Haubners, have earned the top
national and state awards for
the past six years. This is no
small feat, considering there
are more than 2,300 chapters in
the U.S. The couple, Diamond
Life members of the NWTF,
has led the group for the past
12 years.
Although Diann Haubner
works to keep the chapters'
events fresh and exciting, she
credits the members of the
chapter for the groups' success.
"We really do have fan-
tastic people helping us raise
money and helping us to con-
tinue holding successful ban-
quets," she said.
"Everyone wants to be
with the winning team, so ev-
erybody pushes and supports
us, and it becomes easier every
year. We've got so many great
volunteers and sponsors that
the longer we go on, the easier
it gets."
"We do what we're doing
because we believe in conser-
vation, the right to bear arms
and.the NWTF's mission," Lou
Haubner said.
. "We've enjoyed those
things for years and want our
grandchildren to enjoy the
same heritage."

The loss dropped Rivera
into the consolation bracket
where he faced Nick Perez
of Ft. Lauderdale St. Thomas
Aquinas. Rivera scored a take
down for two points and then

held off Perez to take 3-2 victo-
ry. Hauser said it was Rivera's
best match of the day. Howev-
er, the victory took a lot out of
Rivera and his run at the state
championship meet came to an
end against his next opponent,
Tim Locksmith of Osceola. by
a 10-0 score.
"We hosted our own tour-
nament, beat Edgewater for the

first time in over 20 years, fin-
ished with a 16-4 (dual-meet)
record, placed second at the
Metro Conference champion-
ship meet and had two state
championship meet qualifiers,"
Hauser said. "It was, by far,
our most successful year as a
team and we can do better with
Rivera coming back. We have
someone and an example to

build around. We will start our
club program in April and com-
pete in several tournaments
during the summer. This time,
it will be with the goal of tak-
ing that next step as a team in
mind, particularly getting more
wrestlers in the state champi-
onship meet and Rivera plac-
ing. He was only one victory
from placing this year."

Wekiva High girls build for future with 13-11 season

By Neal Fisher
Apopka Chief Staff

A period of adjustment
.usually occurs after a new
-coach takes over the reins of
a program and for the Wekiva
SMustangs girls basketball team,
Terrence Cobb's first year as
'the head man was the norm.
'Compiling a 13-11 record, with
a polished and smooth execu-
tion, the team performed some
of the aspects of the game well,
while at other times, the execu-
tion was anything but smooth
or polished. However, the
overall grade is the season was
a positive one.
"We didn't have as good a
record as last year, but we got a
-lot done and some of the most
important building blocks of a
successful program were set in
-'stone," Cobb said. "We could
look at it and say we didn't
'do as well because the record
wasn't as good, but we played
well in most of the losses and
Showed we are capable of be-
coming a contender against Ev-
ans. It showed ve are capable
of a lot of things; the things
which make for successful
programs. Our enthusiasm was
much better.
"As a result, we defended
a lot better. The scouting report
was very good and the team
was well prepared and, because

of it, we were in a position to
win. Perhaps the most impor-
tant aspect which was set in
stone this year was the emer-
gence of a strong junior varsity
program. The JV team went
16-2. Its only losses were to Dr.
Phillips and Olympia, the two
best teams in the district. We
have eight players returning
next season and we will be able
to add junior varsity players
who can contribute to the var-
sity team."
While the statistics which
made up the final season re-
cord clearly explain, why the
Mustangs' season was one of
contradiction from the first to
second half, almost every game
specifically did the same, in
particular the Class 6A-District
5 championship tournament
first-round loss to Evans.
The Trojans held an 11-3
lead midway through the
first quarter. But the Mus-
tangs scored six consecutive
points to end the period. The
two teams traded baskets and
points during the second quar-
ter as it ended with the Trojans
holding a slim 22-19 lead. The
Mustangs remained close and
eventually took the lead mid-
way through the second quarter
at 34-33 on a lay-up by Akileah
However, Evans quickly
regained the lead as Wekiva

missed a field goal from 12 feet.
Evans grabbed the rebound and
ran its fast break ending in a
trey. Evans then drained a free
throw to up the lead to four.
The two teams traded baskets
to make it a 39-36 game.
Neither team scored a field
goal during the rest of the game
and with 15 seconds left, Evans
maintained its 39-36 lead, but
the Mustangs' gained posses-
sion of the ball as they inter-
cepted an inbound pass.
After moving the ball into
the offensive zone, Baxter set
a down-screen in the paint.
Shayla Shervington popped
out of paint into the left corner
and took a pass there. Sherv-
ington's shot went in and out
of the rim. Evans grabbed the
rebound, drew a foul and con-
verted one of the free throws to
close out the game.
The other game, which
clearly explains why the season
went the'way it did, was against
Timber Creek. A ranked team,
Timber Creek defeated Wekiva
"The loss to the Timber-
wolves was the toughest of
the season for me, because we
fought all night to be in a posi-
tion to win and we were, but we
didn't finish," Cobb said. "We
had our chance to turnaround
what had been happening all
season and didn't do it. But

most tangibly, we had the op-
portunity and should have got-
ten a signature victory, but we
The Mustangs began the
season by winning 10 of the
season's first 13 games. But
against more highly regarded
competition, the Mustangs fin-
ished' the season losing seven
of its last 10 regular-season
Wekiva earned the fifth
seed in the district with a 4-4
record, defeating Apopka,
East Ridge, Ocoee and South
Lake. All four of those teams
finished in the bottom half of
the district standings. The four
teams which defeated Wekiva
finished in the top half of the
district standings, Dr. Phillips,
Olympia, West Orange, and
The Mustangs defeated
10 of the 11 non-ranked teams
they faced, but went only 2-9
against ranked opponents.
The second half of the season
included a five-game losing
streak, all of those games were
against ranked teams.
The losses to the Dr. Phil-
lips Panthers and the West Or-
ange Warriors were also diffi-
cult ones, as well. Against the
Panthers, the Mustangs trailed
by only seven points enter-
ing the fourth quarter against
the Panthers, but gave up 22

'points while scoring only two
during the final period. In the
game against the Warriors, the
Mustangs gave up the winning
points during the final minute.
On the other hand, the
victory over Apopka was the
first for Wekiva and thus a his-
torical, signature one. Victo-
ries over Boone, Oveido, East
Ridge, and two out-of-state
teams were also big wins.
During the season, Cobb
also discussed the intensity and
hard-nose'play factor as it af-
fected the team.
"We can compete with
anybody, but we don't always
have that intensity it takes, es-
pecially against the high quali-
ty of talent we have been facing
lately. Teams have to play with
a high level of intensity to also
have that confidence it takes
to win. They are symmetrical.
It has happened time and time
again. When we were playing
with that intensity and confi-
dence earlier in the season, we
were winning. But when we
didn't do it, we lost.
"When we have a bad pos-
session or make a bad play or
in general, something goes
wrong; we lose our mental
toughness and desire to weath-
er it. During the course of bas-
ketball games, teams are going
to make bad plays and make
some bad decisions which lead

to the opponents getting points.
But the good teams make far
more good ones than bad ones
because they have that desire
to keep doing what they need
to to win. We don't do it yet.
When it -happens, that mental
aspect leaves us and we just go
through the motions.
It was even more obvious
at the end of the season that it
played a role throughout all of
it and it was the major factor in
the two most important games
of it, Dr. Phillips and West Or-
They were games which
Wekiva had, opportunities to
win, but didn't and they led to
Wekiva's fifth seed in the dis-
trict championship tournament.
With next year being
Cobb's second at the helm of
the program, it will provide an-
other benefit for the Mustangs.
"We focused more on im-
plementing offensive and de-
fensive strategies," Cobb said.
"We didn't have a lot of time to
work on what were our weak-
nesses and other integral parts
of the game, like shooting and
catching the ball better. We will
have the time to work on them
next season. Another good
sign, though, is Baxter's turn-
,overs went down and it should
continue next year."
Akileah Baxter is the
team's point guard..

Tim Russell wins series title at New Smyrna Speedway

Tim Russell has been successful
since the first day he got into a Late
IL hjs included race wins and
chamrnpionship- as virtually every re-
cord on the east coast of Florida has
gone home to the Russell Racing shop
\v h the second-generation driver.
The one major prize that had
eluded him though was the overall
championship at the annual World
Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at
New Smyrna Speedway.
Wrecks, blown engines and many
other gremlins cost him the title over
'he p.ii' fi.'il _seasons. Ho'.vever. in
2011. it fell different, as no imtter
what went' down on the racetrack,
Russell managed to find a way to keep
his No. 36 atop the points arid with a
fourth-place finish on Saturday, Feb-
ruary 19, he scored the overall cham-
pionship in the Super Late Model di-
S "I owe this one all to my team,"
said Russell in an emotional victory
lane after the 100-lap race. "We've got
one of the best teams out there. We've
been working hard for many years to
win this and, finally, we brought a title
back to Russell Racing. My dad's won
it and Pete Orr when he drove
for Russell Racing, so this is a pretty
cool accomplishment."
Tim Russell scored two wins and
had seven top-five finishes heading
into the final night for the Super Late
Models. Where wrecks and blown

engines had cost him in the past this
time, it looked as if they were home
free, as others suffered the gremlins
that cost Russell in years past. How-
ever, after time trials for the main
event, Russell and the crew pulled the
car from the impound area to work on
it and elected to start at the rear with
a race win and championship'on the
"We were only 14th fastest, so we
figured we should work on it because
it's not good enough to win the race,"
said Russell after qualifying. "We'll
see whqt we can do to make it go fast-
" The car was faster, but Russell
found himself tangled up in a 12-car
wreck just inside the 10th lap. The No.
36 car suffered minor damage, but the
crew took a half-dozen pit stops to get
it back to where it could race. Russell
slowly picked his way up the leader
board and clinched the championship
when fellow competitor Ryan Moore
went behind the wall.
"I was just sitting there riding,.
going half-throttling it at the begin-
ning," said Russell. "I saw the wreck
happen and got whoa'ed-up, but the
guy behind me must've been driving
off his hood and piled us into it. Fortu-
nately, we didn't get anything torn up,
but the (steering) rack plate was down
about an inch. I just was wheeling it as
hard as I could. I can't thank the guys
enough for fixing it as quick and as
well as they did. I'd like to thank All

It was a family affair when Tim Russell posed with the checkered flag. Everyone's last name is Russell, (1-r), Da-
vid, Tim's father; Ellena, Tim's mother; Crystal, Tim's sister; Tanner, Tim's son; Tim; and An'marie, Tim's wife.

up for us this week. Without them,
none of this would be possible."
At the end of the week, Russell
scored eight top-five finishes to score
the championship at the 45th annual
World Series of. Asphalt Stock Car

racing. Now, Russell looks to win the
Pete Orr Memorial 100 win in March,
which would mean as much' to him
and his crew as any of the big wins
they have had over years.
"Winning the Pete Orr.would be
cool," said Russell. "Pete drove for

the family, so it would be extra spe-
cial and that's our next goal at New
Smyrna Speedway."

Fishin' for speckled perch is still very

good in lakes throughout Central Florida

Hello Folks,

Hey, it was another great
week and the speck fishing' is
still goin' strong. Folks are
catching' plenty of specks in
most of the chains and in your
favorite local lake.
The reports that I'm getting'
are that most of the specks have
already begun spawnin' and
there are just a few on the beds.
I don't think all the specks have
spawned due to the water in
most of the lakes is still pretty
cool. So, maybe we will get an-
other spawn on the new moon
on March 4..
Folks have been catching'
some nice stringers of specks
in Lake Dora, Lake Carlton,
and Lake Griffin. You should
be able to find 'em in 2 ft. to 4
ft. of water. Most of the specks
are bitin' on jigs tipped with a
Linda at Sorrento Bait and
Tackle reports that the specks
are still bitin' on bright colored
jigs tipped with a minner. Some
,of the hot colors have been
chartreuse, pink, orange, and
a lemon color with an orange
stripe. You can find the specks

in the canals and in the pads in
the take. The pads in Dead Riv-
er have been good for the past
two Weeks.
The bass fishing' on the
Harris Chain has been good if
you fish with shiners. Most of
the bass are spawnin' and you
will do well to use a wild shiner
to catch 'em.
Over on the St. Johns Riv-
er, folks are catching' plenty of
specks in the main river in the
pads on jigs tipped with a min-
ner. Lake Jesup has been really
hot for specks.
Folks have been doin' re-
ally good in about 3-1/2 ft. of
water. Again, jigs tipped with
a minner has been working' the

best. You need to fish around
Gator Point and the Solider's
Creek area of the lake for some
great results.
Folks have been catching'
some specks in Lake Monore,
too. Most of the specks are bi-
tin' on'jigs tipped with a min-
ner. The specks seem to be in
about 2 ft. to 4 ft. of water. If
you want to have some fun
catching" some stripes, try fish-
in' in Lake Monroe.
Over on the I-4 side of the
lake, folks have been catching'
lots of stripers on small to me-
dium shiners. If you have never
caught a striper, they are a blast
to catch and they will stretch
your line. So, for some great
fishing , give 'em a try next time
you go to Lake Monroe.
You can still catch some
catfish in the St. Johns River in
the bends of the river. Most of
the catfish are bein' caught on
stink baits, and nightcrawlers.
Well, that's it for this week.
I hope you get a chance to go
fishing' and now is as good a
time as any. See ya next week.
Tip of the week: Stripers
on shiners
Save a few and good luck!

For 91 years, Junior
Achievement has provided
business and economic instruc-
tion to school-age children as a
complement to the standard ed-
ucational format and have done
it primarily by relying on vol-
unteers. Now its local branch
(JA of Central Florida) is in
desperate need of those volun-
teers, particularly for middle
and high schools.
"We reached 84,000 stu-
dents last year, but we still have
JA Program requests from edu-
cators in many middle and high
schools that need to be ful-
filled," Craig Polejes, president
of JA of Central Florida, Inc.,
wrote in a press release. "JA

rial and support you need. Vol-

The group's website
states that Junior Achievement
Worldwide is the world's larg-
est organization dedicated to
educating students about busi-
ness and economics through

"The purpose or objective
is to provide students with op-.
portunities to be grounded in
financial literacy, work readi-
ness, and entrepreneurship,"
said Kathy King, vice presi-

dent of education for Junior
Achievement of Central Flori-
da. "What we do in more prac-
tical terms is provide life skills
to be meaningful contributors
to society and it begins with
having the skills to enter the
job market. We provide stu-
dents with the tools to develop
success skills, from a job inter-
view to reaching their goals in
the career they choose. We also
guide them from a first after-
school job at a company like
McDonald's to one which will
start a career from the more
traditional fields to the more
technical 21st century ones. A
big part of being able to do that
is working with the students to
find the career that matches his
or her personal values and the
best fit for them. There are a lot
of different ways to successful-
ly move from school into a ca-
reer, including no college. No
two people are alike, so no two
ways into a career and being
successful in it are the same."
Junior Achievement pro-
grams help prepare young
people for the real world by
showing them how to generate
wealth and effectively manage
it, how to create jobs which
make their communities more
robust, and how to apply en-
trepreneurial thinking to the
workplace. Students put these
lessons into action, and help
strengthen their communities.
"The uniqueness of the
program is it is delivered in
schools by volunteers who are
role models to the students,"
King said. "JA's unique ap-

the community to deliver our
curriculum while sharing their

students have someone' who
can talk to them first hand

where they want to be. The stu-

can ask because the volunteers

"The volunteers can talk
from first-hand experience
about how they got over the
obstacles they faced. Because
of the structure of our program,
classroom volunteers can trans-
form the key concepts of our
lessons into messages Which
inspires and empowers stu-
dents to believe in themselves
and their ability to make a dif-
ference in the world."
The program covers el-
ementary, middle, and high
school. The actual educational
curriculum is developed by a
team of educators at the com-
pany's national headquarters in
Colorado Springs, Colorado.
"The volunteers bring that
extra piece of life skills to the
curriculum," King said. "And
the curriculum is designed to
help the volunteers with the in-
tricacies of teaching they might
not be able to handle, because
they are not teachers.
"We try to match the vol-
unteers with their life experi-
ences, like entrepreneurs with
entrepreneurship classes or
people who work in the video
field with classes which are
about video careers. But what

is most important is a willing-
ness to share their time with
students and a desire to help
them progress through the JA's
programs they decide to take."

JA Worldwide reaches
9.7 million students per year in
379,968 classrooms and after-
school locations. The program
takes place in inner cities, sub-
urbs, and rural areas throughout
the United States and 122 other
countries around the world.
Currently, 330,000 volunteers
around the world who come
from all walks of life, includ-

are involved.
The organization was
founded in 1919 by Theodore
Vail, president of American
Telephone & Telegraph; Hor-
ace Moses, president of Strath-
more Paper Co.; and Sen. Mur-

Its first program, JA Com-

to high school students on an
after-school basis. In 1975, the
organization entered the class-
room with the introduction of

The Apopka Chief, February 25, 2011, Page 9B

Enjoy the recipes below that highlight Apopka's history

Apopka's and
other nearby r.
history is much . .
in focus lately,
thanks to the Kitchen Kapers
Apopka Histori- By Ramona Whaley
cal Society and
its Preservation
Advisory Council.
One local church's cookbook com-
mittee, however, was a couple decades
ahead of today's growing interest in our
town's and all northwest Orange Coun-
ty's historical heritage.
The beautiful 446-page cookbook,
Treasures and Pleasures, published in
1990 by the Presbyterian Women of the
First Presbyterian Church of Apopka in-
cludes almost as much local historical
data as recipes.
"Since 1873," the cookbook com-
mittee wrote in the cookbook's opening
pages, "Presbyterians have had an ac-
tive part in Apopka's history."
"During these years there have been
many highs and lows for the church
as well as for the community, but hap-
pily both have not only survived but also
The church's own historical high-
lights, listed at the front of the cookbook
published nearly a quarter of a century
ago, date back as far as only 14 years
after Northwest Orange County's oldest
surviving structure, The Lodge, was built
in 1859.
In 1873, Presbyterians organized a
congregation which, along with Method-
ists and Baptist early settlers here, met
'at The Lodge for worship. In 1885 and
'1886, their Presbyterian Church building
was constructed and a circuit rider min-
ister preached there every third Sunday.
In 1918, the cookbook's historical
Highlights page notes, "a tornado flat-
tened the Methodist church, so Pres-
;byterians and Methodists shared the
:Presbyterian church until 1922, when
the Methodists erected a new building
:on the corner of Park Avenue and Third

And, in that year of 1922, "Presbyte-
rians, having been temporarily disband-
ed, were reorganized, with four resident
members." From 1922 until present
time, there has been a continuous, ac-
tive Presbyterian Church in Apopka.
The emphasis on local history con-
tinues in the cookbook's opening sec-
tion entitled Early Cooks, which features
recipes for which.those early Apopkans
were known, along with tidbits of infor-
mation about each of those individuals.
Below are a few.

Golden Chief



Peace Corps experience was meaningful and memorable

By Ramona Whaley
Golden Chief

Next week will mark the
passage of half a century since
President John F. Kennedy
signed a bill establishing the
Peace Corps on March 1, 1961.
It was hoped the Peace
Corps would help third-world
nations, help us to understand
and teach about other cultures,
improve United States foreign
relations and erase our coun-
try's image as the Ugly Ameri-
can, the title of a popular mid-
twentieth century book.
Detractors had fun refer-
ring to the new Peace Corps.
as Kennedy's Kiddie Corps.
Older Americans with decades
of experience in various fields
were, and still are, very much
needed by the Peace Corps,
but it was mostly idealistic and
gung ho recent college gradu-
ates in their early twenties who
rushed to sign up en masse. I
was one of them.
Those two years, 1964
and 1965, when I worked as
a Peace Corps Volunteer for
America and for my host coun-
try, Guatemala, turned out to
be the most meaningful and

memorable time of my entire
life so far.
Preparing to celebrate the
Peace Corps' golden anniver-
sary this March 1, RPCVs (Re-
turned Peace Corps Volunteers)
scattered around America and
around the world will be help-
ing commemorate this major
milestone by talking and writ-
ing about their roles in the
Peace Corps.
Toward that end, for the
past several years, my fellow
Guatemala III (third group as-
signed to Guatemala) RPCVs
have been working together on
writing a group-memoir in an-
thology format.
Our goal has been the
book's publication in time for
the Peace Corps' big fiftieth-
year birthday bash this year.
We believe our theme of how
the Peace Corps impacted the
rest of all our lives meshes well
with the 2011 celebration of the
Peace Corps' first 50 years.
The adventure of writing a
rare group-authored book has
been like our best and worst
days in the Peace Corps, all
rolled-up together.
Working with fifty high-
ly intelligent, well educated,
witty, sensitive and opulently

Tt's simple, really. How well you retire depends on how well
you prepare today. Whether retirement is down the road or
just around the corner, if you're working toward your goals
now, the better off you'll be.
Preparing for retirement means taking a long-term
perspective. We recommend buying quality investments
and holding them because we believe that's the soundest
way we can help you work toward your goals.
At Edward Jones, we spend time getting to know your
retirement goals so we can help you reach them. To
learn more about why Edward Jones makes sense for
you, call or visit your local financial advisor today.

conversations, we have now
come to know each other far
better than ever was possible
back when we were so widely
scattered in our Peace Corps
sites all around the beautiful
country of Guatemala, from the
Peten jungle to Port San Jose.
Telephones were rarely
available in Guatemala back
then in the 1960s. Internet was
still eons away. Cross-country
bus travel was rustic and rather
risky. We saw or heard from
each other rarely, mostly only
at occasional meetings in Gua-
temala City with our director.
We never knew each other re-
ally well back then.
Our time was given far
more to getting to know our
host-country neighbors, espe-
cially those who would become
our best friends forever. That

to a new generation," President
Kennedy said in his inaugural
address shortly before starting

Today's seniors still are

then in the 1960s, just grown a
bit by now!
"Ask not what your coun-

challenged. "Ask what you can

Taking care of your teeth is a / rI UU I
life-long job. It takes a lifetime of

healthy and bright.
You know that you need to
brush and floss, but do you know
that what you eat is important
too? A balanced diet will keep
you healthy. That alone should
give you reason to smile. It is
especially important to remember
that foods from the dairy group will
give you calcium needed for strong bones and teeth.
Junk food snacks taste good, but they do little to keep you in
good health. In fact, sticky, sugary treats will cling to your teeth
unless you think, stop and brush your teeth. There are also many
foods with sugar "hidden" in them. The peanut butter, ketchup,
canned foods, presweetened cereals, jams and ice cream you buy
may have a lot more sugar in them than you think.
Check the labels for these sugars: corn syrup, honey, sucrose

and brown sugar.
sticky snacks:
* Fresh fruit
* Pickles.
* Popcorn or
Rice cakes
* Nuts or seeds
* Soup or broth
* Cheese cubes

Residential Mortgage Foreclosure
Mediation Program for Orange County
The Orange County Bar Association has been appointed Pro-
gram Manager for the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court Residential.
Mortgage Foreclosure Mediation Program (RMFMP).
The program has been developed to bring together residen-
tial homeowners and representatives from the bank or lienholder,
with a natural, third-party mediator, in an attempt to resolve is-
sues related to the foreclosure action that has been brought against
the homeowner. The service is provided to homeowners free of
charge, but they can choose to be represented by an attorney in
mediation at their own cost, said a news release.
In addition to the Courts' Administrative orders, you will find
information for mediators, plaintiff attorneys, defense attorneys,
and homeowners at OCBA Web site,
The downloadable information will assist those involved to be-
come aware of the processes for participating in the RMFMP.
