Till questions need

for new dollar store
By John Peery
Apopka Chief Staff

Despite objections about the number of dollar stores in
Apopka from one city commissioner, the City Council ap-
proved a Dollar General store for 1716 Rock Springs Road di-
rectly across from the northern end of the plaza where Publix
supermarket is located.
Commissioner Kathy Till questioned the need for the store,
saying there was a market saturation of dollar stores inApopka.
She also was the lone dissenter in the 4-1
vote. 'This is at least dollar store num-
ber five," she said. "I want to know why
they made that determination (to build in
"I have a real problem with that,"
~ Till said. "We get to tell people, 'Guess
what? We're getting another dollar store.'
I'm not happy about it."
Till Jeremy Anderson of ALDS, an Or-
lando civil engineering firm, said Dollar
General, based out of Goodlettsville, Tenn., "stands aside from
other dollar stores." The company does extensive research be-

Birds like these cormorants taking flight off Lake Apopka are a cause of concern as the city of Apopka and the West Orange
Airport Authority look to build a larger airport in Northwest Orange County.

Airport may fly into trouble with birds

By Sherry Brunson
Apopka Chief Staff

There was a number of concerns for
the various entities at the West Orange Air-
port Authority meeting on June 24. One
of the issues is that of wildlife in the Lake
Apopka Restoration Area, especially birds.
Jim Wikstrom of the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation said their main
concern was safety and a wildlife manage-
ment plan is part of those safety concerns.
Robert Christianson, Department Di-
rector of the Department of Operations and

Land Resources for the St. Johns River Wa-
ter Management District, emphasized that,
while the district doesn't have any qualms
about an airport as a neighbor, there was a
concern for the increasing amount of bird
species in the Lake Apopka Restoration
Area. He said the FAA has specific stan-
dards as to how near an airport can be to
wetlands, but he feels that the FDOT wild-
life study will address those issues.
Jim Thomas, president of the Friends
of Lake Apopka, also was open to the air-
port, but was concerned about plane acci-
dents caused by birds in the vicinity.

'The airport scares us," he said.
'There is a liability issue. If someone is
hurt, who is responsible? We are not op-
posing it (WOAA's plan), but we are not
supporting it, either."
Capt. Leroy Brown, 90, a former air-
line pilot, felt that the problem was non-
"I have been flying over Lake Apopka
since 1939 or '40," he said. "I have flown
as a pilot for Pan Am Airlines and as a crop-
duster. and I have spent many hours in the

$5 million renovation nearly done at Apopka Winn-Dixie

By John Peery
Apopka Chief Staff

Winn-Dixie's $5 million remodel-
ing of its Apopka supermarket at Errol
Plaza, dubbed a transformational store
by the company, is expected to be com-
pleted in time for the official opening on
Wednesday, August 3.
Tom Seay, store director, said the
low-key ribbon cutting will be held at 7
a.m. that day when the store opens, but
an open house will take place on Thurs-
day, August 4, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. At
the second event, Winn-Dixie's big-
wigs, including CEO Peter Lynch, will
attend. There will be product samplings,
live entertainment, and giveaways.
On Friday, August 5, from 4-7 p.m.,
there will be a wine and cheese sam-
pling, along with a chocolate fountain
paired with fresh fruit. There will also
be food-tasting stations, live music, and
gift-card drawings.

week, the grand-opening events have
been delayed three weeks due to some
last-minute tweaks.
While the remodeled store is only

a little bit bigger than its predecessor,
there are a lot of changes inside, includ-
ing much more in the way of prepared
foods. In addition, there are about dou-

ble the number of employees from the
previous 75, the store director said.
"It's a big upgrade from what we
were doing before," Seay said.
While many of the prepared foods
are common to supermarkets these
days, the new Winn-Dixie does have
such unique offerings as a pizza and
pasta bar, and an area with barbecue.
"The barbecue bar has been a big hit,"
Seay said.
An expanded line of cheeses and a
bigger bakery are in the same area as the
other prepared foods. The store also has
more space for produce and has more
wine offerings. Seay said he is looking
for a wine steward to help customers
choose their wine.
For the first time, the store has fresh
fish and seafood, and an expanded area
for beef, pork and chicken.
In addition to the expanded pre-
pared foods area, the rest of the store

'They do a lot of background
checks in the area. They do
their research and they want to
be here. They're not concerned
about saturation with this store
at all."
The new store will be lo-
cated about a half-mile from a
Family Dollar store that is cur-
rently being built just south of
the proposed Dollar General. It
will be the second Dollar Gen-
eral store in Apopka. The cur-
rent store is located in Victoria
Plaza on U.S. Highway 441 on
the west side of town.

Influence Your Preanancv

In the time before and during
your pregnancy, there are many
important things mommies-to-be
can do to ensure a happy and
healthy pregnancy. Dr. Thomas
Enyart, OB/GYN at Florida
Hospital Apopka, sees many
expecting mothers with questions
about how to live a healthier
lifestyle during pregnancy. First, it
is essential to seek prenatal care
and become established with a
physician as soon as possible.
Dr. Enyart recommends three
other easy ways to be proactive
about your baby's health from the
1. Prepare for pregnancy
with prenatal vitamins.
For women who are trying
to conceive, prenatal vitamins
are incredibly important. Many
developments, including
organ development, begin at
conception and are happening
before a woman may even find
out that she is carrying a child.
Prenatal vitamins ensure that the
fetus is receiving all of the proper
nutrients right away by making up
for any lack in nutrients from the

mother's diet. Prenatal vitamins
are just as important during the
early stages of pregnancy as well
if a woman was not taking them
while trying to conceive.
An important ingredient in
prenatal vitamins is folic acid,
which is essential for brain
and spine development. Look
for a prenatal vitamin with one
milligram of folic acid, typically
prescribed by your primary care
physician or OB/GYN. Over-the-
counter prenatal vitamins only
carry 800 micrograms of folic acid
so it is best to see your physician.
Women in general should take a
multivitamin every day with at
least 400 micrograms of folic
acid since some pregnancies are
2. Exercise is extremely
Exercise is an important
part of your health and your
baby's health before and during
pregnancy. Many women are
afraid to hit the gym when they
find out they are expecting
but in fact, limited exercise is
recommend throughout your

entire pregnancy. Just taking a
brisk walk on the treadmill for 30
minutes a day is a great place
to start. Women who engage in
higher-impact exercise or heavy
weight lifting can typically keep
with their workout routine up to
around 20 weeks.
3. Eat a well-balanced diet.
We all know that eating a
well-balanced diet is the key to
healthy living, and it remains
true during pregnancy. It is a
complete myth that a pregnant
woman is "eating for two,"
meaning she can eat more often
and a larger portion size than
usual because of the baby. It is
necessary to add only a couple
hundred more calories to the
average 2,000-calorie diet when
pregnant. As the baby grows and
gets closer to the delivery date, a
woman may feel the need to eat
more. Dr. Enyart recommends
eating five to six smaller meals
throughout the day to help with
the appetite.

City Commissioner Billie
Dean said he wanted city staff
to make sure the landscap-
ing is kept up and maintained.
Jay Davoll, the city's commu-
nity development director, said
Apopka's code enforcement
staff is looking at sites to make
sure they keep landscaping
maintained. He cited the Publix
plaza as one example where the
landscaping has been improved
as a result of the city's code en-
forcement staff's work.
As one of the conditions of
the approval for the building of
the store, Dollar General offi-
cials must get adjacent property
owners to sign off on the use of
hedges as a buffer instead of a
masonry wall.
In addition, Davoll said
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection is
working with Dollar General
to make sure the arsenic is
cleaned up and that it doesn't

is expected to begin soon and

The City Council also ap-
proved a Waffle House res-
taurant at 236 E. Main St., a
site that has been abandoned
for several years. It is located
between Dunkin' Donuts and
Porkie's Original BBQ, and
most recently housed an in-
surance office. It was built as
a Linda's Hamburgers drive-
through many years ago.
Although there were dis-
cussions by council members
about the number of jobs the
restaurant would bring and
landscaping issues, the Waffle
House was approved 5-0.
The 1,635-square foot 24-
hour eatery will have 34 seats
and 24 parking spaces, Davoll
"We wanted to see if we
could create a Waffle House
that is not your typical Waffle
House," said Joe Hoffman, vice
president and director of real
estate for Waffle House, which
is based out of Norcross, Ga.,
'We want to intermingle verti-
cal and horizontal angles, along
with the use of shadows and
colors in keeping with the city."
The restaurant will have
architectural nuances that will
match the nearby pedestrian
overpass of Main Street.

Hoffman said each Waffle
House employs 30-35 people
full-time with another 15 or so
working on a part-time basis.
"It's not your typical Waf-
fle House," he said. "We feel
it's going to be a nice addition
to Apopka."
After the meeting, Hoff-
man said construction on the
store will begin in the fall and
take 75-80 days to complete.
He said the restaurant should be
open by the end of the year.
In other action, the council:

area for everybody (all super-

air and I have never had bird
problems. In all those years I
have only hit one bird and that
was not over Lake Apopka."
Bob Loomis, one of the
owners of the North Orlando
Airpark, said he felt the eco-
nomic development would
improve the situation between
airports and the birds.
"If we are approved, then
there will be a specific air traf-
fic control in the area," he said.
'Then there won't be people
flying low directly over sensi-
tive areas of concern. All air-
craft will be required to come
in at a certain heading and de-
part at a certain heading, kind
of like a highway. If we can
have that corridor, it will be a
lot more controlled."
In the conviction that the
city of Apopka would benefit
from the economic develop-
ment brought by the WOAA
plans, City Manager Richard
Anderson announced at the
City Council meeting Wednes-
day, July 6, that the city has fi-
nally closed on the purchase of
the fixed base operations build-
ing at the Orlando Apopka Air-
"We are talking with three
potential vendors who will run

the FBO," Anderson said.
Sanford International
Airport Authority President
and CEO Larry Dale, a John
Wayne-type man, who is a di-
rect speaker, said all airports
have trouble with wildlife, and
the majority of the problems
are with birds.
"We had to undergo a
year-long wildlife assessment,"
he said. "It is not just us, every
airport, whether in the city or
in the wilderness of Alaska.
We have to trap, shoot and
spray every day. And it is not
just birds; there are deer, pos-
sum and feral hogs. Like it or
not, we have to haze with py-
rotechnics and use eternal vigi-
lance every day because birds
are attracted to airports because
open spaces attract insects and
insects attract birds."
Dale said the large airports
have a wildlife plan and a wild-
life staff to handle the plan.
According to the FAA,
Orlando International Airport
has had 60 bird strikes since
January 1, this year, Sanford
International has had nine, and
Kissimmee had four. In 2010
Orlando International had 157
bird strikes, Sanford Interna-
tional Airport had 28 and Kis-
simmee had eight.
Kathleen Bergen, a

spokeswoman for the FAA,
said the FAA manages all the
airspace over the United States.
'There are no specifically
designated flight training areas
in Florida," she said. "Although
there is a lot of flight training in
the Lake Apopka area. Florida
is well-known for flight train-
ing. People come to Florida
from all over the world to learn

Council should set policy,

but not micromanage

For the most part, the Apopka City
Council does a good job of overseeing
Apopka's city government and making
sure that the city of Apopka is run well.
A proof of that is the fact that Apopka
has the lowest property tax rate of any
full-service city in Orange County.
But, we see a trend that, while not
outlandish, certainly gives us pause to
At more and more City Council
meetings, commissioners have taken
the time to give their opinions on ev-
erything from the size and shape of
windows, to the type of landscaping
used, to the name of a retail store want-
ing to build in Apopka.
While the city's code certainly does
not prohibit members of the City Coun-
cil from giving their opinions on such
issues that come before the body at
public meetings, it is generally accept-
ed that the duties of groups such as city
councils, county commissions, state
legislatures, and Congress are to set
policy, not micromanage departmental
If city commissioners wish to deter-
mine exactly what type of shutter goes
on a building or what kind of grass is
planted as landscaping at a business,
then they need to set that as a policy by
passing an ordinance. Right now, city
staff is working with potential business
owners based on the current code as
passed by the City Council only to have
city commissioners dictate something
else when those potential business own-

ers make their decision about the proj-
In addition, it perplexes us that the
word "dollar" in the name of a store
drew the ire of Commissioner Kathy
Till enough that she voted against the
approval of a Dollar General store even
though the company has met and con-
tinues to meet all the requirements of
the city code. Currently, the property is
a vacant lot with a high amount of arse-
nic in the dirt.
Dollar General is working with the
state Department of Environmental Pro-
tection to make sure that it's cleaned
up and/or covered up and will not be a
danger to the public. Fortunately, the
rest of the City Council voted in fa-
vor of the store so we will soon have
a jobs-producing business on a plot of
cleaner land rather than a vacant lot
filled with arsenic. Having another store
bearing the "dollar" name may not be
e \cilin g but the marketplace should
determine what stores locate here. The
companies that build these stores have
become successful by doing market re-
search and their due diligence. If the
market wouldn't support another dollar
store, obviously those businesses would
not choose to locate here.
Members of the City Council
should certainly study the issues, give
their thoughts on issues, but, in our
opinion, those thoughts should be about
policy, not micromanagement. We have
well-paid city staff whose job is to fol-
low City Council policy.

Property values affect budgets

It's budget time: the time
of year when local govern-
ments calculate how much
money they will have to spend
and how to spend it.
The collapse of the real
estate market has had a sub-
stantial impact on state and lo-
cal governments. Local gov-
ernments derive a considerable
portion of their revenue from
property taxes that are based
on real estate values. Florida's
state government receives sig-
nificant revenue from docu-
mentary stamp taxes. Docu-
mentary stamp taxes are as-
sessed on real estate transac-
tions based upon the sale value
of the property sold.
Lower property values re-
duce the amount of property
taxes collected by government
and the documentary stamp

County Commission

Fred Brummer

taxes collected by the state at
the time of real estate sales.
Today, however, I will speak
about Orange County's prop-
erty tax revenue and how Or-
ange County spends it.
The Orange County Com-
mission has abolished more
than 450 positions in the past
two fiscal years. That means
that today the county delivers
a service level consistent with
two years ago with substantial-

ly fewer employees.
It would be easy to brag
about the huge amount of
money the commissioners are
saving the taxpayers now, but
the ability to reduce that many
positions and deliver the same
service level tells me Orange
County was overstaffed three
years ago.
The Orange County may-
or's proposed budget for the
year 2011-2012 further reduc-
es positions by an addition-
al 27. The question is "Is that
enough of a reduction?"
Property values in Or-
ange County have plummeted
for the last several years. This
year, property values are again
down more than 2 percent.
That means that, with the same
millage rate, Orange County


PIP' fraud costs climb to $1 billion

Previously, I have dis-
cussed a major problem fac-
ing Florida's drivers: person-
al injury protection or "PIP"
fraud and abuse as a result of
Florida's no-fault motor ve-
hicle insurance requirements.
Fraudulent and criminal activi-
ties such as staged accidents,
health care clinic fraud, and
persons falsely alleging to be-
ing injured in an accident they
were not physically a part of
has led to an estimated 70-per-
cent increase in PIP costs. The
total cost in 2011 is a stagger-
ing $1 billion, and this trans-
lates to an additional $160 in
added premiums that the typi-
cal two-car family is required
to pay.
The National Insurance
Crime Bureau (NICB) moni-
tors these trends and recently
released a report that demon-

strated that, in 2008, a total
of 6,508 questionable claims
(based on one or more indica-
tors of possible fraud) were re-
ferred to NICB. In 2010, that
number went up to 8,724, a
34-percent increase in just two
In these difficult econom-
ic times, it is completely un-
acceptable that hardworking
families have to bear the brunt
of high auto insurance poli-
cies because of the illegal ac-
tions of others. That's why last

week, I worked with our Chief
Financial Officer Jeff Atwater
to host an auto insurance fraud
summit in Orlando. Guests on
the panel included the CFO,
state Senator Gary Siplin,
members from the NICB, the
Orange County Sheriff's Of-
fice, State Attorney's Office,
and the Attorney General's
Office. State representatives
Homer and Boyd sponsored
reform legislation related to
this issue during the last legis-
lative session.
During the event, NICB
presented the disturbing facts
and figures that clearly demon-
strated the rampant fraud and
abuse that continues to drive
up premiums here and around
the state, with Orange Coun-
ty zip codes 32808 and 32818

Report of 1997 shows newspapers' decades of deceit, diversion

JULY 8 Columnist
note: This column is primar-
ily directed at those who were
10-years-old 14 years ago
and believe that their liberal
"skulls full of mush" (as Rush
would say) are the product of
a well-rounded education and
exposure to objective journal-
ism, that has given them com-
plete disdain for conserva-
tive philosophy. Although this
piece is from April 25, 1997,
it is an accurate report on a
well-planned 50-year strat-
egy to incrementally destroy
our Constitution, freedom and
national faith in God through
progressive (read: Marxist)
strategy. The headline of this
piece was, "Extra! Extra! Edi-
tors get good spanking." If
you doubt that the journalistic
sins expressed here haven't in-
creased 10-fold, just consider
the background, qualifications

Corbeil's Corner

Richard Corbeil

and agenda of the person now
holding this nation's highest
APRIL 25, 1997 Last
week, a sharp condemnation
of American newspapers was
issued by a person who, prob-
ably above all others, is quali-
fied to do so.
The accuser stated that,
'The American public now
sees newspapers as intru-
sive, sensational, uncaring and
flawed by bias and inaccuracy.
'Too many Americans say
of newspapers that they lack

introspection and restraint;
also lacking discipline and a
capacity for self-scrutiny.
'They say newspapers
have grown distant from their
own readers ... cold, brutish
and cynical."
If this article missed any
possible adjectives, I can't
think of them offhand. Now,
who was this speaker? ...
Rush Limbaugh? ... William
F Buckley?
Actually, this was the
closing address of Bob Giles,
president of the American So-
ciety of Newspaper Editors at
the group's annual convention
in Washington, D.C. Accord-
ing to Paul Harvey, nationally
acclaimed news commentator,
Giles, who is also the publish-
er of the Detroit News, has his
press colleagues squirming in
their chairs, and no one stood
to say him nay!

The handling of some re-
cent events certainly proved
Giles correct in the treatment
and placement of news and the
lack of information given to
the American public.
Our own local metropoli-
tan daily was certainly typi-
cal of the partisan treatment
of Bob Dole's personal loan
of $300,000 to House Speaker
Newt Gingrich for him to re-
imburse the Congress for an
investigation by an indepen-
dent counsel for the Ethics
A banner headline dom-
inated the front page with,
'Dole loan gets Gingrich out
of jam." This could have just
as easily and much more accu-
rately stated, "Dole loan shows
Gingrich's integrity."
Meanwhile, buried in the
gutter on page 17 was a sto-
ry on President Bill Clinton's

counselor and former chief of
staff, Mack McLarty, regard-
ing his all-day grilling by a
Little Rock, Ark, grand jury.
The jury's inquiry was into
McLarty's and other White
House officials finding some
$500,000 in "legal work" for

The contrast between the
treatment of a perfectly legal
and normal loan arrangement

The Apopka Chief, July 8, 2011, Page 5A

Reader disquieted with Corbeil column


Your Web site proclaims
the goals of The Apopka Chief
to be "excellence, accountabil-
ity and integrity." You also
say on the site that "it is the is-
sue of being the voice of you,
the members of this commu-
nity, that we are dedicated" to.
As a 10-year resident of Apop-
ka, I now raise my voice to
be heard on a matter of long-
standing concern to me and to
many others in my circle of
friends and neighbors.
We take strong issue with
the frequently slanted, vitriol-
ic and unfair manner in which
your Opinion page colum-
nist Richard Corbeil chooses
to express his partisan politi-
cal views. For my own part,
his writings so trouble me that
my blood pressure rises, my
blood boils and I question why
I continue to subscribe. The

last straw was his most recent
column printed in your paper
on July 1 titled "Just what we
needed, a president decree-
ing Goatherding 101." The re-
mainder of this letter addresses
Mr. Corbeil directly.
Mr. Corbeil, to my mind,
your most recent column
has set a new low in politi-
cal commentary even for you.
"Moochelle," Mr. Corbeil,
"Moochelle," really? Is your
dislike for the current, duly-
elected president of the Unit-
ed States of America, Barack
Obama, so intense that you are
no longer content to trash just
him but now feel emboldened
to malign his wife, the first
lady Michelle Obama, too?
"Moochelle," Mr. Corbeil,
"Moochelle," really?
Since even toddlers know
that 'moo' is the sound made
by cows, are you, by calling
her "Moochelle," suggesting

that Michelle Obama is, or re-
sembles, a cow? While not
model-thin like Nancy Rea-
gan, the wife of your person-
al hero President Reagan, Mi-
chelle Obama is no less a fash-
ion icon. With her womanly
figure, Mrs. Obama comes far
closer to the proportions of
real American women today.
As first lady, her initiatives of
improving the lives of our mil-
itary families and encouraging
young Americans to eat health-
ier and exercise more (note
her Let's Move initiative) have
earned her the respect and ad-
miration of countless Ameri-
cans, though it is glaringly ob-
vious that you are not one of
But really, Mr. Corbeil,
let's get down to the heart of
the matter. As insulting as your
sarcastic swipe at Mrs. Obama
was, she wasn't your real tar-
get was she? No, your snide

Till on Highland Manor concerns


Since the closing of High-
land Manor, I have received
several emails and phone calls
from residents expressing their
concerns and opinions. First
and foremost, I want to share
how much all are appreciated.
Whether we agree or disagree,
all residents are welcomed and
encouraged to speak out about
this issue and any other. The
worst thing that could hap-
pen is no one speaks up ... that
means no one cares. And that
just isn't Apopka!
Some have spoken in fa-
vor of the closing and the
city's actions. Some against.
Others have shared great ideas
on how to move forward with
the property either as anoth-
er restaurant or special events
venue or both. After spending
several weeks dissecting these
comments, I feel I must now
share my thoughts.

As I have said frequent-
ly, the city of Apopka IS NOT
the restaurant business. Any
that believe otherwise are mis-
taken. At no time did we in-
terfere with how business was
being conducted. We are the
property owners, and, thus, the
landlords to which rent was
due. I think we can all agree
that no business in our city that
pays rent to a landlord wants
them to interfere or tell them
how to run their business. It is
the responsibility of the busi-
ness owner to do their due dili-
gence so they understand the
local market, manage and mar-
ket their business, hire and fire
employees, and pay their bills.
It is not the responsibility of
the landlord.
The landlord is respon-
sible for collecting rent, main-
taining the building and prop-
erty (according to any con-
tracts negotiated) and making

sure any business operating on
their premises is doing so le-
gally and is properly licensed
to do business according to
federal, state and local laws.
However, prior to the opening,
we carefully and thoroughly
researched the prospective ten-
ant to determine if they had a
track record of successful en-
trepreneurship, restaurant man-
agement, and business acu-
When the restaurant was
opened, we worked diligently
with the owners to help them
succeed by negotiating a very
reasonable rent, encouraging
residents to frequent the es-
tablishment, and, on occasion,
hosting events on the proper-
ty. We also granted temporary
variances to our sign ordinance
to increase visibility for the
business. After a specified pe-
riod, the rent was to increase

workshop seeks to teach par-
ticipants self-management for
how to live comfortably with
chronic conditions like heart
disease, arthritis, cancer, asth-
ma, bronchitis, emphysema,
epilepsy and diabetes.
Approximately 11.5 per-
cent of the greater Orlando area
population suffers from diabe-
tes, according to the 2009 Cen-
tral Florida Community Health
Survey. Diabetes is the third
most common chronic condi-
tion, just below those battling
obesity and weight issues, both
possible indicators of diabetes.
The class focuses on chang-
ing participants' behaviors in
eating, exercise and stress relief
through lessons in nutrition,
workout safety, problem solv-
ing, managing symptoms and
handling difficult emotions.
Participants learn to commu-
nicate better with physicians
and to locate information about
Medicaid and free or low-cost
community health clinics and
prescription medications.
Other workshops offered
through Heart of Apopka in-
clude the chronic disease self
management workshop for
chronic diseases like heart dis-
ease, arthritis, cancer, asthma,
bronchitis, emphysema, and

Featured houses connected to Apopka's history

By Ramona Whaley
Apopka Chief Correspondent

Sources of historical data
included in this article are from
Angela Nicols' Northwest Or-
ange County Register of His-
toric Places, Jerrel H. Shof-
ner's History of Apopka and
Northwest Orange County and
the 1992 Historic Properties
Survey ofApopka.

It has been a great ride
these recent weeks as we've
traveled back into times past
in search of Northwest Orange
County's historical roots.
We embarked on this
Northwest Orange County
historical homes series via
slow-moving mid-nineteenth-
century pioneers' covered wag-
ons. We've arrived at this point
halfway through the series,
and, five decades later, via the
exciting late 1800s' new rail-
roads and fast train travels.
Now, we are journeying

into a new century. Welcome
back to the year 1900.
Crossing the timeline from
19th into the 20th century may
not have been quite as dramatic
for our ancestors as our own
generation's more recent cen-
tury leap into the year 2000.
It likely was a well-cele-
brated passage, however. And,
even now, we still are celebrat-
ing those first years of the 20th
century via the Apopka Histori-
cal Society's ongoing Celebra-
tion of History, which honors
northwest Orange County's
still surviving 100 years or
older architecture. Included
in the 42 houses listed on the
Historical Society's Northwest
Orange County Register of
Historic Places is this week's
featured historical house pic-
tured here, historically known
as the Henderson House.
Constructed circa 1900,
the 111-year-old Henderson
House in Apopka was located
in the historical Wray's sub-

The Henderson House was constructed circa 1900 and lo-
cated in the historical Wray's subdivision.

division, a 1925 plat that was
carved from Darby's Addition
to Apopka platted by T. C. Dar-
by in 1888.
Historian-author Jerrell
Shofner mentions those three
above names in sections of his
book about early Apopka land
development and real estate,
noting that "H. H. Henderson
and J. W. Wray did business as
Henderson and Wray" and that
"between the Combs and Lake-

Side Homes, Thomas C. Darby
added another tract in 1888."
Among the many reasons
historic homes like the Hen-
derson House are so worth
saving for future generations
is their immense value as tan-
gible links connecting us with
our Northwest Orange County
communities' earliest inhabit-
ants like the ones named above.
Touching these old houses'
wood or stone is reaching out

and touching our precious past.
In learning any historic struc-
ture's history, we come to know
the people who once lived in it
and moved about in the very
same spaces in our communi-
ties that we now walk through
Learn a lot about them
and it might sometimes seem
we can almost reach out and
touch these remarkable and so
very likeable people who once
walked in these spaces we now
walk through, passing them as
they invisibly cross our paths
which once were their paths as
If you are enjoying getting
to know all about this series'
fascinating folks from our past,
who once lived in these historic
homes being featured weekly
here, consider finding some

Events set to benefit Cancer Care and Resource Center

By John Peery
Apopka Chief Staff

Two fundraisers will be
held on Saturday, July 23, to
benefit Debbie Turner's Can-
cer Care & Resource Center,
Inc., an organization that has
helped many cancer survivors
in Apopka.
Registration for a benefit
run sponsored by the Chrome
Angels of Central Florida, a
local ladies motorcycle club,
will have registration from
9:30-11 a.m. at the center,

at 711 S.
Park Ave.,
The first
bike out
will leave
at 10:30
a.m. The
cost of the
Turner run is $10
per per-
son and one of the following
items: socks (men/women),
hairbrushes, combs, deodor-
ant, baby wipes, magazines,
books, toothbrushes, mouth-

wash, soap, towels, wash-
cloths, scarves or hats.
The benefit run route
leads through the local coun-
tryside with few gas stations,
so participants are asked to
plan accordingly. The ride
will end at Lakeside Sports
Bar, 528 Eighth St., Clermont,
where game cards will be of-
fered, starting at 2 p.m., for
those not riding. Last bike in
for scoring will be at 3 p.m.
The ride will also feature a 50-
50 raffle, discounted food and
beverages, and music by the

IronHorse Band.
"The Chrome Angels of
Central Florida are an inde-
pendent motorcycle riding as-
sociation made up of women
bound together by our love of
riding and our desire to make a
positive impact in our commu-
nity," said Jessi "Sundancer"
Sills, founder and president of
the club. "When my mother,
Helen Martin, passed away
with breast cancer, I wanted
to do something in her mem-
ory, so I combined her love of
angels with my love of mo-

torcycles. We are a certified
501(c)(3) non-profit and have
contributed approximately
$100,000 for charitable orga-
nizations. Our main focus is to
support breast cancer research
and to help its victims. We are
a legitimate organization and
are proud of what we have
done in the community.
"All of us have been
touched by cancer, and we are
touched that Debbie supports
all types of cancer," Sills said.

Lois Drachenberg, of Zellwood Station, is pictured above with her collection of miniature
furniture crafted by immigrant cabinet makers put to work making school exhibits under
the WPA International Art Project during the 1930s. Drachenberg was employed by the
Oakland Public Schools Audio Visual Department in Oakland, California, in 1961 when
she discovered the furniture in the basement of the Administration Building. The school
system bequeathed the furniture to her upon her retirement. Since 1962, she has been
sharing the miniature treasures by arranging displays of the furniture during Christmas-
time at retirement homes, senior centers and church groups.

(See message below above church list.)

W hat it means to "find one's voice" is a deep and
complicated issue, but certainly part of finding
one's voice involves the hard work of first listening
to others. Only through genuinely listening to others
and really hearing what they are saying do we be-
gin to understand who we are. Self-understanding
comes, if it comes at all, only through differentiating
ourselves from those around us. By truly listening to
others we gain a sense of who we are. Then one can
be confident that one speaks with his or her genuine
voice. Writer's often speak of finding one's voice, or
finding a voice for one's characters, knowing that it
is possible to speak in a variety of voices, many of
which may not be genuine or authentic. The modern
world is filled with characters whose primary voice
is one of ironic disdain and who seem to doubt the
possibility of having a sincere and genuine voice. It
may be difficult to know exactly who we are precise-
ly because we are always growing and changing,
but that does not preclude there being a set of core
values from which our voice might emanate. So,
perhaps we should spend some time in conversa-
tion with our self, with others, and with God, and find
our voice, and then be quietly confident to use it.

The Apopka Chief, July 8, 2011, Page 9A

Disquieted: Opposite viewpoints needed in weekly

Continuedfrom page 5A
nist, Marxist, socialist, secret
Muslim, Kenyan bor, pal of
terrorists are but a few of the
verbal stones you have unjust-
ly hurled at the president, all, I
might add, without a shred of
evidence to support them.
I trust you realize that
your charges come perilously
close to slander, defamation
and calumny, which is defined
as a false and malicious state-
ment designed to injure the
reputation of someone. Since
you choose to end your col-
umns with a scriptural pas-
sage, I must conclude that you
are also familiar with the Ninth
Commandment, "Thou shall
not bear false witness against
your neighbor." Perhaps your
political views blind you to the
need to be more objective, and
less invective, when you dif-
fer with the president's course
of action on matters of national

importance. Disagreeing with
any sitting president's poli-
cies and decisions is part of the
sideshow of American politics.
Doubtless all presidents expect
to be criticized, it goes with
the territory. But while criti-
cism on policy issues is fair
game, your rants and name-
calling appear to descend into
the realm of personal attacks
upon the man Barack Obama
and not upon his actions as
As I noted earlier, Mr.
Corbeil, you choose to con-
clude your columns by invok-
ing some passage from the Old
Testament of the Bible. With
an air of moral superiority and
certitude that your views are
the right ones, you carefully
select a passage that you think
supports the ideas in your col-
un that issue. Do you by this
action mean to leave the reader
with the impression that God
somehow supports your views

above all others and sanc-
tions your comments, even the
mean-spirited ones? Or, do
you quote scripture to impress
your readers with your piety
and "Christianness?" I do not
believe the Christ of the New
Testament, with his preachings
of love and kindness, would
condone your actions Mr. Cor-
beil, and I for one say enough
is enough. You need to stop.
You need to heed the very
scripture you appended to your
July 1 column, 'Psalms 52:
In what has to be a great
touch of irony, you chose this
passage to highlight your col-
umn's latest attempt to twist
the president's actions to fit
your slanted purpose. What
you accomplished instead
however, was a scriptural re-
buke of your own actions. I'm
going to repeat Psalms 52: 2-4
here for you now Mr. Corbeil.
Read it again, for it speaks di-

rectly to you."
"Thy tongue deviseth
mischiefs; like a sharp ra-
zor, working deceitfully. Thou
lovest evil more than good,
and lying rather that to speak
righteousness. Thou lovest all
devouring words. O thou de-
ceitful tongue."
Lastly, I would like to
leave this note to The Apop-
ka Chief: A community paper
such as yours needs to have
articles and columnists that
represent the diverse views of
the entire community. Mr Cor-
beil's columns, based upon
my seven years of readership,
clearly represents one side
of the political divide in this
community. Who now in your
weekly speaks for opposite
viewpoints? You need balance.
The community of Apopka de-
serves to see balance.

Concerns: Residents invited to council meetings

as the business became profit-
able. We amended this clause
because of economic condi-
tions, and worked with the
business so their rent did not
go up.
Did we make mistakes and
could we have done things bet-
ter? Absolutely. This situation
reflects badly on our city and
we have taken responsibility
for cleaning up the mess. But
we can and will overcome it,
if we work together. We must
learn from our mistakes and
move forward, making sure
they are not repeated in the fu-
ture. We are exploring several
alternatives for the venue so
as to insure it's something that
will be embraced by our resi-
dents and has every opportuni-
ty to be successful and profit-
Having said this, I now
come to my main point. Al-
most daily, I hear about how
residents want more shops and
restaurants in our city. So do
I! But before I go further, last
week I decided to take an in-
ventory of the businesses that
already exist in Apopka. Here's
what I found:

There are 2,152 currently
licensed businesses in the city
of Apopka. Of that total, there
are 194 retail establishments
and 67 restaurants. Of the 67
restaurants, 15 are fast food.
As noted, there are several
restaurants and retail establish-
ments already here. While we
pursue more, all of these busi-
nesses deserve our support as a
They have chosen to lo-
cate in Apopka and are surviv-
ing during the toughest of eco-
nomic times. I applaud each
and every one of them and
want to publicly say thank-
you. They provide revenue for
our city and jobs for our citi-
Many are of the opinion
that government should not
spend money to bring busi-
nesses to Apopka. I respect-
fully disagree. It is not govern-
ment' s responsibility to cre-
ate jobs, but it is absolutely
our responsibility to create the
opportunity for businesses to
create jobs. And if we are not
willing to invest in our city and
create those opportunities, why
should we expect private in-
dustry to do so? We, your local
government, must send a mes-

sage that Apopka is open for
business. A perfect example
of this is the UCF Incubator
Program. This is exactly how
a public/private partnership
should work to create an envi-
romnent for new businesses to
This program gives us the
chance to be competitive in at-
tracting new companies (tax
revenue and jobs!) with sur-
rounding cities that current-
ly have an incubator. And the
location is exactly where it
should be, in a high-visibility,
high-traffic corridor. This is a
key component in the formula
for business success.
However, we should nev-
er spend money unwisely.
We must carefully adhere to
our long-range comprehen-
sive plan, understanding when,
where, why and how it's pru-
dent to invest, by monitoring
the local, state and national
economic and political climate,
keeping our residents safe, pro-
viding services to our citizens,
upgrading and maintaining our
infrastructure, minimizing state
interference through unfunded
mandates, balancing our bud-
get and keeping our tax rate
the lowest in Central Florida

for a full-service city.
Times are tough, in busi-
ness, at home and in govern-
ment. This is no surprise con-
sidering the current state of our
economy. But I am an optimist
and always see the cup as half-
full. So I know all of the afore-
mentioned entities will see
brighter days ahead...hopeful-
ly sooner rather than later and I
am excited about Apopka' s fu-
In closing, I would like to
invite all of our residents to at-
tend our City Council meetings
or any public workshops about
our town center development
project. These meetings are al-
ways open to the public and
input is encouraged. Council
meetings are held on the first
and third Wednesday of every
The first Wednesday meet-
ing begins promptly at 1:30
p.m. and the third Wednesday
meeting begins promptly at 8
p.m. This is the perfect oppor-
tunity to express your opin-
ions, share your ideas and be
an active participant in the dis-
cussion about our city's future.

will collect less revenue again
in the coming year.
I hope the smaller reduc-
tion in positions proposed for
the coming year (27) com-
pared to the last two (aver-
age 228) is not related to the
lesser pressure from a smaller

decline in property taxes. In
other words, just because the
decline in revenue is small-
er does not mean we should
make less of an effort at reduc-
ing spending.
I am not certain what
readers see in the local econ-
omy. I predict continued hard
times with little job growth in

our small-business economy in
Central Florida.
Accordingly, it is imper-
ative that the Orange Coun-
ty Commission look at every

it continues to be necessary.

Again, Giles' labels of
"cold, brutish and cynical" are
certainly apropos to the ob-
viously intended deflection
of this dangerous developing
Mid-Eastern alliance from the
public's attention.
In the face of dropping
circulation and the outright
closing down of many long
established papers, it is beyond
understanding why they don't
make the changes that would
restore them to credibility and
public trust. But, in Giles' as-

sessment of his own profession
and their present mode of op-
eration, the key word he uses
is "uncaring."
In this context, it is un-
caring of the best interest and
safety of the American public
... their fellow U.S. citizens.
If that is true, it's only
simple justice that most of this
medium seems to be heading

Youth hangouts destroy valued principles

c d



Hangout for youth

Especially when youth of a
designated ethnic group congre-
gate on street corners in the ar-
eas, we use numerous monikers
to describe that portion of a de-
plorable neighborhood, because
most of the youth participants
don't have any signs of signifi-
cant reasoning or concerns for its
notorious adverse consequences.
Usually, this form of activity
breeds gang-like initiation, pre-
cipitates robbery or stealing, and
encourages rape of both genders,
prostitution, illicit pharmaceuti-
cal distribution, constant drug
use and abuse, and loan shark-
ing. Recently, street corners have
become more prevalent for hang-
ing out and creating havoc than
its predecessors, namely trees,
mom-and-pop storefront, and the
park behind Phyllis Wheatley El-
ementary School.
Well over a period of two
decades, South Central Avenue
and its favorite cross streets
in the unincorporated Orange
County portions of Apopka have
been a temporary haven for the

persistence in persuading these
corner hangers not to congregate
finally initiated several unruly
encounters. Therefore, it became
necessary then through the work-
ings of Orange County deputies
Cpl. Rick Wisecup and Off.
Danny Anderson to precipitate
and orchestrate a Neighborhood
Civilian Police Force sanctioned
by OCSO wherein to aid OCSO
as additional eyes and ears only.
This special group would ob-
serve or report for OCSO to in-
tercede. Prior to membership of
this new program, a large trailer
with office facilities was dedi-
cated and established by OCSO
Under-Sheriff Malone Stewart
at 18th Street and South Central
Avenue in Apopka to accommo-
date group activities and desig-
nated programs.
Before the 2008 election of
the Orange County sheriff, the
Neighborhood Civilian Police
Force project was tabled for lack
of interest. Very few qualified
people were found after a thor-
ough background check.
It is an absolute neces-
sity that the present day OCSO,

along with Apopka Ministe-
rial Association, concerned grass
roots citizens, civic groups, and
local businesses join together
to address these devastating is-
sues that have pyramided to the
point of complete destruction for
society. Percentage-wise, when
comparing statistical crime re-
ports, these corner gatherings
have excessive negative data
regarding shootings, cutting, as-
sault and battery, etc. Slim has
the experiences of residing in
several similar ghetto areas that
had similar issues in the likes of
Miami, Atlanta, New York City,
San Francisco, and Orlando. All
had, to some extent, the occa-
sion to address issues in order to
help reduce these problems sub-
stantially to a low percentage.
The majority of these areas con-
fronted with issues or problems
previously mentioned have em-
ployed numerous methods of the
prevention, saying "an ounce of
prevention is better than a pound
of cure."
It is very obvious from man-
kind's history: we tend to destroy
valued principles and morals.

Restaurant manager writes book

By Sherry Brunson
Apopka Chief Staff

Sean O'Neill, manager
of Froggers Grill and Bar in
Apopka, recently published
a book about his 25 years as
a restaurant manager, I Was
Finally The Restaurant
Manager, Who Should I
Fire First? Restaurant
Management The People
Side. He makes it clear that
none of the stories in the book
occurred at his current job.
"It took about a year to
write," O'Neill said. 'There
are all kinds of stories of the
people I worked with through

the years and how I worked my
way up to become a manager."
O'Neill's book is filled
with action-packed stories of
fights between cooks, pranks
performed by the cooks on
each other and the fallacies
and good points of a variety of
fellow employees and colorful
customers. Stories range from
pathetic bosses to hilarious
circumstances that prove truth
sometimes can be stranger than
The book is filled with true
stories of what happens behind
the scenes at many restaurants,
especially in management,
O'Neill said.

For example, as a manager,
when a drunken customer
kept harassing a couple of
young women, he asked the
man to leave the premises.
The man returned after hours
and asked if he could come in
and apologize. O'Neill had a
strange sense that something
wasn't right, and said he
needed to go get the keys to
open the door. He called law
enforcement for help before
opening the door. The man had
a gun on him and very possibly
had planned to shoot him and/
or some of the staff involved.
There is the use of
profanity in the book, relating

Specializing in
Adult Medicine.
Serving Office,
Nursing Home &
Assisted Living Facilities.
Wound Care Certification
Diabetic Skin Certification

Older adults often can
benefit from health care that
is tailored to their changing
needs by a physician who
limits their practice to the
care of the elderly. Such a
physician understands the
typical patterns of aging and
that no one is typical. Dr.
Charles A. Morgan,
M.D., P.A. knows this well.
Dr. Charles Morgan
is a local Extended Care Phy-
sician who provides medical
services to older adults in his
office and in nursing homes,
assisted living facilities, and
retirement communities.
His unique touch to
patient care is a reflection
from times past and a desire
to give personalized medical
care. This approach comes
from his professional experi-
ences, which started in June
of 1960 when he received
his medical degree from
Loma Linda University in
Dr. Morgan's pas-
sion for quality health care
is evident. His certifications
include the American Board
of Family Practice, ongoing
since 1978,the Charter Cer-
tification of American Medi-
cal Directors, since March
of 1991, and, he is currently
certified in Wound Care and
recently certified in diabetic
skin care.
Dr. Morgan held po-
sitions as the Medical Di-
rector of Employee Health

at Florida Hospital. He was
Medical Director of Ocoee
Healthcare for 16 years, and
the Life Care Center of Al-
tamonte for 24 years. He
was elected Chairman of the
Family Practice Department
of Florida Hospital for three
years. He also held teaching
positions at Florida Hospital
from 1975 to 2006 for stu-
dents and residents.
He currently is Medical
Director of Waterman Cove
Nursing Facility and Medi-
cal Director of the Savannah
Court in Orange City.
His medical experiences
include his current family
practice, which was started
in 1961 with obstetrics, oc-
cupational medicine, and
emergency room services.
He began to work with the
geriatric population in 1976.
Dr. Morgan recog-
nizes that older adulthood
brings with it a vulnerability
to certain conditions includ-
ing dementia, osteoporosis
and susceptibility to falls. He
knows how these underly-
ing conditions might com-
plicate a person's wellness. If
you're over 60 years of age,
there are many reasons to
consider a physician who is
knowledgeable in geriatric
Many older patients take
more than one medication
on a regular basis. It's impor-
tant to understand how one
medicine affects another.

Age-appropriate guide-
lines for health screenings
are essential in this age pop-
ulation. It should be a physi-
cian's goal to keep on top of
all the current recommenda-
Those who limit their
practice to the care of the
elderly understand how de-
pression and other mental
health issues can complicate
an older adult's well be-
ing.You should be routinely
screened for depression be-
cause it is incredibly under-
diagnosed and, therefore, un-
treated in older adults.
Dr. Morgan recog-
nizes the importance of psy-
chosocial needs and can help
his patients take advantage
of community resources
such as at-home help. And,
he is knowledgeable about
advance directives such as
healthcare proxies and liv-
ing wills, and other concerns
that affect his patients' end-
of-life wishes.
Dr. Morgan helps
with the management of
medical problems and com-
mon geriatric issues such as
memory loss and dementia,
depression, osteoporosis,
incontinence, medication
evaluations, fall and bal-
ance problems, preventative
medicine, and screenings and
vaccines. He also assists with
coordinating the care with
other health care providers
and agencies.

Dr. Morgan helps the man-
agement of medical prob-
lems and common geriatric
issues, and is committed to
the comprehensive health
care of older adults.

Dr. Charles Morgan
is dedicated to the compre-
hensive health care of older
adults. His select office staff
takes the best approach to
maintaining the health of
mature adults while paying
attention to the individual
needs of each person. They
offer primary medical care,
provide consultations with
your own physician, and
make house calls and visits
to nursing homes for those
who cannot get out.

Whether you are look-

Farm Bureau Insur-

personal service and quotes
that are tailored to your
specific needs.
Life insurance may be
one of the most important
purchases you'll ever make.
If someone will suffer finan-
cially when you die, chances
are you need life insurance.
To figure out if you need
life insurance, you need to
think through the worst-
case scenario. If you died
tomorrow, how would your
loved ones fare financially?

Life insurance proceeds can
help pay the bills, daily living
expenses, continue a fam-
ily business, finance future
needs like your children's
education, and protect your
spouse's retirement plans.
Would they have the money
to pay for your final expens-
es (e.g., funeral costs, medi-
cal bills, taxes, debts, lawyers'
fees, etc.)? What's more,
there is no federal income
tax on life insurance benefits.
The truth is it's always
a struggle when you lose
someone you love. But your
emotional struggles don't
need to be compounded
by financial difficulties. Life
insurance helps make sure
that the people you care
about will be provided for
financially, even if you're not
there to care for them your-
When you're married,
many people mistakenly be-
lieve that they don't need
to think about life insurance
until they have children. Not
true. What if one of you
was to die tomorrow? Even
with the surviving spouse's
income, would that person
be able to pay off debts like
credit-card balances and car
loans, let alone cover the
monthly rent and utility bills.
If you're a single parent,

winner, cook, chauffeur, and
so much more. With so

Dr. Katrina Schroeder 's dental practice offers a

comprehensive approach to your dental care

Dr. Katrina Schro-
eder knows the impor-
tance of being there for her
patients and taking good
care of your mouth is a big
part of taking care of your
whole body.
Benefits of maintaining
that wholesome smile are
plain to see, boosting con-
fidence and improving your
overall sense of wellbeing.
But a healthy mouth is good
for you in others ways, too.
Regular dental visits are
for keeping your teeth and
gums in good shape. Besides
brushing and flossing, a bian-
nual checkup might be the
best thing you can do for
your oral health. But, what
you might not know is that
there's a strong relationship
between your oral health
and your overall health.
Bacteria from untreated
gum disease can actually
spread infection to other
parts of your body. Also,
some non-dental conditions
have symptoms that appear
in the mouth. Dental ex-
aminations can reveal signs
of vitamin deficiencies, os-
teoporosis, or more serious
conditions such as diabetes
or oral cancer.
Dr. Katrina Schro-
eder's dental practice of-
fers you a comprehensive
approach to your entire
dental care needs. Whether
it's a routine check-up or
an advanced procedure, her

staff is trained in the newest
dental techniques, and en-
sures your visit is a comfort-
able one.
Dr. Schroeder has
experience in the most up-
to-date dental technology
and treatments and gladly
accepts most insurance
plans. Plus, she offers a pay-
ment plan that allows pa-
tients without dental insur-
ance to afford the best pos-
sible dental care.
Once you meet Dr.
Katrina Schroeder, you
can see why she's so popu-
lar with her patients. Her
remarkable proficiency is
perfectly complemented by
her warm personality. Dr.
Schroeder is a graduate
of the University of Florida,
and is fully certified in such
innovative new treatments
as Invisalign and cosmetic
porcelain veneers.
Dr. Katrina Schro-
eder is Invisalign certified.
Invisalign (braceless braces)
is the latest offering for or-
thodontics. This is the ideal
solution for patients who
have their permanent teeth.
The product is virtually in-
visible and removable for
meals, brushing, and flossing.

be used to treat cavities, in
many cases without the pa-
tient having to receive the
shots to be numb. Most pa-
tients only feel the cool wa-
ter spray of the laser.
The Waterlase MD La-
ser can also be used for soft
tissue procedures, such as
reshaping the gum tissue for
a more aesthetic appearance
and periodontal procedures.
One benefit of utilizing the
laser for soft tissue proce-
dures is minimizing post-op-
erative discomfort.
The Diagnodent is a la-
ser that can detect cavities

Character camp set for July 11-15 in Apopka

The fourth annual Sonny's Summer
Character Camp will be held Monday, July
11, through Friday, July 15, at Wheatley Park
in Apopka.
The camp is sponsored by Sonny's
Franchise Company, the parent company
of Sonny's Real Pit Bar-B-Q in partnership
with the Boy Scouts and the state of Florida's
Learning for Life program. Over the past
three years, more than 300 children living in
underprivileged communities have been of-
fered a free day-camp experience to include
all activities, programs and food.
"Sonny's Summer Character Camp is
a wonderful program which teaches at-risk
students critical life skills through fun-filled
activities," said state Rep. Bryan Nelson, an
Apopka Republican.
"The camp incorporates character build-
ing attributes such as positive attitude, re-

spect, responsibility, cooperation and ilnteg-
rity. Sonny's expects another 100 children to
participate this year," a company spokesman
This year, speakers include Nelson;
Apopka City Commissioner Bill Arrow-
smith, and World War II veteran Bill Cole-
man, among others. The camp will kick off
with a community barbecue and camp regis-
tration, hosted by Rep. Nelson, at Wheatley
Park on Sunday, July 10, from 4-6 p.m.
Activities throughout the week include
visits from the following organizations:
* The Children's Safety Village
* C.A.R.E Foundation
* Orange County Fire Department
* American Red Cross Mid Florida Region
* Orlando Kraze Soccer
* Orange County Sheriff's Office presenta-

* Petey the Clown, face painting and much
"I feel honored to be associated with
Sonny's Summer Character Camp and the
Learning for Life Character Education Pro-
gram that is so essential for our kids today. In
a society where many of the students aren't
receiving true parenting, programs such
as this help provide students with the tools
needed to succeed in school and everyday
life," said Terry Grove, committee chairman,
Central Florida Learning for Life.
"This has been a passion program for
Sonny's and our team members for the past
three years. We are excited to begin our
fourth year of summer camp, providing great
food and learning experiences for the kids
who attend," said Monique Yeager, direc-

In battle of Apopka teams,

American 9-10 comes out on top

By Neal Fisher
Apopka Chief Staff

The 2011 Florida Little League District
23 championship game on Wednesday, July 6,
for the 9-10 years old had the qualifications it
should. The two Apopka teams came into the
game with a combined 5-0 record and the clos-
est any team had come to defeating either squad
was by two runs. Each pitching staff's earned run
averages was under 2.00 while the offenses had
scored at least five runs in each game.
But, with the stakes at their highest and in
a championship game which was exactly what
it was supposed to be with runs scored at a pre-
mium, it was Jared Tyner who upped that already
impressive performance as he threw a brilliant
one-hitter to lead the Apopka American team to a
3-0 victory over the Apopka National squad and

the District 23 championship.
"Tyner's performance was definitely the dif-
ference," Apopka American coach Ron Ander-
son said. "He threw a shutout and went the dis-
tance. And it was a one-hitter. They couldn't get
anyone on base. He is a bulldog. He doesn't give
in to batters, even when the count is 3-0. He is so
effective because he hits his marks and he makes
batters hit his marks. Tonight, he was even bet-
ter than usual in the biggest of games. Then we
got great defense behind him and two RBIs from
(Josh) Morse. He got the hits we needed."
Tyner walked one batter while striking out
three. He faced 20 batters, two more than the
minimum of the six-inning game. The only in-
ning he did not retire the side in order was the
third, when he gave up the single and walk. Nor

Apopka Junior squad defeats

Maitland in best-of-three series

By Neal Fisher
Apopka Chief Staff

When the Apopka 13-14-year-old Junior
team celebrated its District 23 all-star tourna-
ment championship after the final out of game
three, it had every right, as it had just come back
from the brink of elimination. In a best-of-three
series, Apopka lost the first game to Maitland in
the final inning, but then stormed back to win the
final two contests. The third game was far from
Apopka's best, but it was able to get the key hits
and outs, winning by a 9-6 score.
"We wanted to get ahead and stay ahead,"
Apopka coach Chris Thompson said. "More than
an 1hini, jumping out to the big lead was what
allowed us to play our game. We had some prob-
lems during the middle part of the game, but we
kept pushing the players to not give up and to

continue doing what they did to take the big lead
and because of it, we were able to put a couple
more runs on the board, just enough to stay in
control. We came out and played small ball. It
worked to perfection. We went to the bunt and
"The 13 players played as a team. They are
such a strong-willed team and refused to give up
when we lost the first game or even tonight when
we ran into trouble during the middle innings.
My feelings are the same as after winning the
Tournament of Champions championship. This
is very special to me. To win a second champion-
ship after coaching for 23 years without one and
having several near misses, it's hard to put into
words. We (the coaches) finally got to move on
and do it with this group of players, who are so

During the Sarasota YMCA Invitational swim meet June 25-
26, Kaitlyn Whalen, 18, of Apopka, swam four events over
the course of the weekend alongside her teammates from
Fast Lane Aquatics. On June 25, she set a personal best in
the 100 butterfly, but her focus was on the 200 butterfly
the following day. On June 26, during the preliminaries,
Whalen finished first with a time of 2 minutes, 19 seconds,
outswimming the other 32 competitors. She and Fast Lane
coach Alec Rukosuev had a goal to come back for finals
that evening with a time of 2:16.59 or better, which would
qualify Whalen to attend the Olympic time trials for the
200 butterfly. With a quick start off the blocks, Whalen
maintained the lead for the first 150 yards. As she came to
the finish, she touched with a time of 2:15.9 and will head
to Omaha, Neb., in June 2012 to compete for a spot on the
U.S. Olympic Swim Team. This fall, Whalen will start her
freshman year in college with a full swimming scholarship
to the University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas.

Ragan's first Sprint Cup victory also first for Georgia racing family

David Ragan's first Sprint Cup victory,
which came at Daytona International
Speedway on Saturday in his 163rd
career Cup start, was a long time in coming
for him and his family. And for race fans in his
home state of Georgia, it also had been a long
time since anyone from the Peach State stood
in Victory Lane at a Cup race, although the
last two Nationwide Series races were won by
Reed Sorenson, from Peachtree City, Ga., and
Joey Logano, who once lived in the north
Atlanta suburb ofAlpharetta.
Georgia's last Cup win came in 2003, when
Bill Elliott won the fall race at Rockingham.
That's a short stretch compared to the
Ragan family of the South Georgia town of
"My grandfather, I never met him, but he
owned a car," David Ragan said. "He never
drove any, but he owned a car in the '40s and
Ragan's father, Ken, and uncle Marvin
caught the racing fever as kids and eventually
tried their hands at Cup racing, though with
little success.
Ken Ragan, racing as an independent in
cars owned by his brother, drove in 50 Cup
races from 1983 to 1990 but never had a top-
10 finish.
Once again, the racing fever spread to a
new generation of the Ragan family.
"That's what ultimately sparked my inter-
est," David Ragan said of his father's racing
and the friends the family made during that
Young David started out racing Legends
cars at Atlanta Motor Speedway and moved
almost directly from there to the upper levels
of NASCAR. His lack of experience hindered
him early on, but he's learned on the job, as
his Roush Fenway Racing teammate Matt

Kenseth pointed out after they finished 1-2 in
Saturday's Coke Zero 400 at Daytona.
"I've seen David mature a lot and learn a
lot," Kenseth said. "When he came in here and
started driving the 6 car, I don't know David's
whole racing history, but he didn't have a lot of
experience, especially driving big, heavy cars.
"He's had a couple of different crew chiefs
and car chiefs and crews and groups until
they found a good mix that worked really well
with him. I don't know why it is like that, but
you've got to get that right mix of people
together and get them all working right
together. It seems like he's got that right now."
And, as Kenseth pointed out, it was tough
for a then 21-year-old Ragan to take over the
car made famous by Mark Martin.
"Stepping in the 6 car after Mark leaving
and all that stuff isn't exactly the easiest job
in the world," Kenseth said.
Ragan nearly got his breakthrough win at
Daytona in February. He was poised to win
the Daytona 500 on a late-race restart but was
penalized for changing lanes too soon.

Saturday's 400 miler played out almost exact-
ly the same way, and this time Ragan made no
mistakes. With a push from Kenseth, he held
on throughout a green-white-checkered-flag
run to the finish, redeeming himself for his
earlier mistake.
"If we would have won at Martinsville this
year, I would have said, 'Man, we've moved on
past that Daytona race,'" he said. "But coming
back here and to get that win here at Daytona
is that extra little bit that I wanted kind of to
show the Daytona race track: 'Here's what
we've got.'
'That makes it a little bit more special ... com-
ing back here to Daytona, being able to run the
same type of race we ran in February and learn-
ing from our mistake, not making a mistake."
He did, however, have several chances on
restarts to mess up, and didn't.
'That's gratifying that we were able to
come back to Daytona and kind of prove to the
race track that we're better than that that
we can take you and we beat 'em," he said. "It
feels good."

Martin wins 50th career pole
On the weekend that David Ragan got his
breakthrough Cup victory, the man who once
drove the No. 6 Ford had a record-setting per-
formance of his own.
Mark Martin, who now drives the No. 5
Chevrolet at Hendrick
Motorsports, won the
pole for the Coke Zero
400, the 50th of his
career. He's now eighth
on the all-time pole list.
Richard Petty leads with
123, followed by David
Pearson with 113. Jeff
Gordon, with 70 poles,
leads all active drivers.
"I've had the pleasure Mark Martin
of driving a lot of fast
race cars and working
with a lot of great teams through the years,
and I'm really grateful for that," Martin said.
"This [pole] is really special because I know
how much work goes into the four restrictor
plate races each year by Hendrick
Motorsports, and with the competition the
way it is today, it's kind of amazing that they
manage to sweep the restrictor plate poles. It
is just an engineering feat by all.
"I was the lucky guy that really had noth-
ing to do with it other than to be the lucky
guy that got to strap in it today."
He wasn't so lucky in the race. He wrecked
near the end and finished 33rd.

UPS, Ragan: Future undecided
David Ragan's win in the Coke Zero 400 puts
him in a good position to take one of the wildcard
slots in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, but even so
his immediate future is far from certain.The sta-
tus of his sponsorship, from UPS, is still uncertain.
"Certainly we were hopeful that UPS will carry
on in a meaningful regard with the sponsorship of
the 6 car, but right now we are in negotiation,"
team owner Jack Roush said. "We don't have an
assurance thats going to be the case, but David
has arrived at the upper echelon. He's a winner
now, and he's given a win to UPS, and hopefully
they'll consider that as they think about the value
of the program and what it means to all of their
employees and what it means to their customers
to have this association."
Among those congratulating Ragan and wish-
ing him well in the future was one of his fellow
Cup drivers, Dale Earnhardt Jr.
"Real proud and happy for him," Earnhardt
said. "He's a good guy. He's a really nice guy, plays
by the rules. He runs hard and is trying to do the
best he can and keep himself a job, man, so this
ought to help him out."
Track, sponsors donate food
Daytona International Speedway paired with
one of Jeff Gordon's sponsors and donated extra
food items from Saturday's race to the Second
Harvest Food Bank of Volusia County.
The donations, made on behalf of Drive to
End Hunger, AARP and AARP Foundation's
nationwide initiative to end hunger among
older Americans, were expected to include
breads, produce and other food items.
"This donation is a great opportunity to help
people who are struggling in the Volusia County
area and to build momentum for Drive to End
Hunger as we take the 24 car around the coun-
try this season," Gordon said in a statement.
"Six million people over [age] 60 in this country
struggle with hunger, but with the help of the
sport's dedicated fans, tracks and partners, we
can make a real difference in the communities
we visit each week."

Harvick vaults ahead of Edwards to take lead in Cup points

Kevin Harvick heads to the inaugural Sprint Cup
race at Kentucky Speedway as the series points
leader, five points over previous leader Carl Edwards,
who had a 25-point lead over Harvick entering
Harvick got the lead largely because Edwards
wrecked early at Daytona and wound up 37th.
Harvick, who finished seventh after drafting all
night with his Richard Childress Racing teammate
Paul Menard, said the key to a good points night was
simply being there at the end.
"It's just one of those deals where if you can survive

a night like this and you can get a decent finish; you
always want to win, but they're a crap shoot at the
end, and you've just got to be rolling to see what hap-
pens," he said.
Edwards said he decided early on to be aggressive,
knowing he was in good shape points-wise.
"We were going to go out there and race a little
harder this time," he said. "We had the points lead
and not a lot to lose, so it's no big deal. It is what it is.
If you take the last five restrictor plate races and
average them out, we've done really well. We just
have to make sure we do well in the Chase."

Apopka Juniors stave off elimination in game vs. Maitland

By Neal Fisher
Apopka Chief Staff

Facing elimination on June
29, the Apopka 13-14-year-old
Junior team, re-found its game
on both sides of the ball as it
defeated Maitland by a 10-4
score. The local team took an
early lead and its bats contin-
ued to hit as Apopka, unlike in
the first game, was in control
from the start, putting the game
away long before the final in-
Because they were the
only two Junior league teams
in the district, the tournament
was a best-of-three series.
"We won simply because
the players brought their 'A'
game tonight," Apopka coach
Ron Anderson said. "They
played well for periods during
the first game (a loss to Mait-
land), but not for all of it. To-
night, they played a full seven
innings. We (the coaches) talk-
ed to the players about bringing
everything they had tonight.
We let them know there was
no tomorrow and if they didn't
play their best, the season was
over. They responded and
showed they have some tough-
ness as well.
"The difference as far as
how the game unfolded and us
playing as well as we did was
also simple: We hit the ball to-
night and we ran the bases well.
We took a lot of extra bases to-
night, which makes it easier to
Apopka scored early to put
itself in the desirable position
and then consistently kept do-
ing it. During only one inning
did Apopka fail to score as it
answered Maitland every time
it scored by re-establishing the
lead at what it was before.
Setting the tone early and
putting Maitland on its heels as

soon as it could, Apopka took
a multiple-run lead by push-
ing three runs across the plate
from the get-go. Rhett Whit-
field began the hit parade with
a single over third base. Singles
by Brandon Colina, Drew Wen-
dorf, Graham, Kyle Gibson and
Kyle Kelley followed, with the
last three batters getting the
RBIs. In between Colina and
Wendorf's singles, Whitfield
was tagged out at home trying
to score from third on a hard-
hit liner by Hunter Rotarius.
Two doubles off the bats
of Maitland and an error cut
the lead to 3-2 halfway through
the third. But Apopka answered
with one of its own to re-estab-
lish its lead at three runs.
Maitland had it in them to
mount a come-from-behind ral-
ly once, cutting the lead to one
run during the third. But, it did
not have it within itself to do it
for a second time, as the two
runs Apopka scored during the
third inning effectively ended
whatever momentum and op-
portunity Maitland had to come
from behind. It would never get
closer than four runs.
The two-run rally began
with Rotarius drawing a walk.
A single by Wendorf and a
walk to Graham loaded the
bases. Then, Gibson smacked
another ball up the middle to
bring in the two runs and give
Apopka a 5-2 lead.
Single runs were scored
by Apopka during the next two
frames to increase the lead at
the end of the fifth to 6-2 and
to keep the deficit the same at
7-3 at the end of the sixth. Mai-
tland scored one run during its
half of the sixth.
The game was then put
away with another three spot
by Apopka during the seventh.
Maitland scored a run during
the final frame to make it clos-

I! I

er, but long after the outcome
was determined.
Cale Watkins began the
game for Maitland, pitching
only the first inning. He was
replaced on the mound by
Parker Bizar. He was able to
hold Apopka during the sec-
ond inning, but that was the
only inning he was effective, as
Apopka touched him for four
runs during the course of the
next two.
After the first two batters
of the fifth reached base, Sean
Massey came in. He pitched
1-1/3 innings before giving
way to Buck Watkins with a
runner on first in the sixth.
Watkins faced only five batters,
recording only one out which
came at the plate. The game
was finished by Burns Cullen
who got the final out.
Spencer Graham pitched
an effective and strategic game
for Apopka, recording outs
when he needed to prevent
Maitland from challenging
the lead. He went six innings,
giving up nine hits. He did not
walk a batter while striking out
Due to the pitch limit, he
had to be replaced. Siddeeq Ali
got the first two outs of the final
frame and then Gibson struck
out the final batter.
Three of the four runs Gra-
ham gave up were earned. The
unearned run was scored dur-
ing the seventh as the inning
began with an error.
"Graham pitched well
when we needed him to," An-
derson said. "He kept them at
arms' length, giving our bats an
opportunity to put some room
between us and them. He did it,
and if he didn't, we wouldn't
be talking about another game.
Whitfield (the catcher) did a
great job, too. He has thrown
out five or six runners during

this tournament. Those run-
ners he threw out were critical.
They would have put Maitland
in a position to score those runs
which give teams momentum
and turn a one-run inning into
a winning rally.
"We also had to move
some of the players around and
they continued to play like they
had at the previous ones, very

solidly. The team played like it
wanted to keep playing. I am
proud of the team. They found
a way to get their mental tough-
ness back when they had to.
They played like a team which
wasn't going to give up when
it could have. They wanted to
play again and earned the right
to do it."
Apopka was offensive
minded as it collected 14 hits,

including three by Gibson. Ro-
tarius, Wendorf, Graham, and
Kelly also reached base three
times. Maitland also helped the
Apopka effort by walking six

teams played the rubber game

Apopka 9-10 teams have plenty of success

By Neal Fisher
Apopka Chief Staff

The Apopka 9-10-year-old American
Little League team proved it could win
games early as it took a big lead after the
first couple of innings. However, during its
final two games of the District 23 all-star
tournament, the Apopka squad also proved
it could win the close games as well. It won
the second game by a 7-5 score, then fin-
ished off its undefeated run through pool
play and clinched a berth in the champion-
ship game against Apopka National with a
5-2 victory against Lake Mary.
Lake Mary did a fairly good job of
shutting down what had been a potent of-
fense, but Apopka was still able to get an
early lead and its pitching held onto it.
"The game was what we expected,
tight defense and good pitching," Apopka
coach Ron Anderson said. "With that kind
of game, it was going to be won with time-
ly hitting and that was also what we ex-
pected and it happened. We got the timely
hits. We expected this to be a much closer
game than what we have played in so far.
They (Lake Mary) still had an opportunity
to advance to the championship game, but
we got good pitching. Again, as it has been
for the whole tournament, it was the key to
us getting our bats going.
"We held them at bay and it gave us
a lift on offense. It gave the offense the
time to get itself going and it did it fairly
quickly. So we got ahead early and gained
control of the game. It is a huge advantage
to play from ahead and to be multiple runs
ahead. We took a two-run lead early and
then increased it to three. It is a big differ-
ence to extend a lead from one to three runs
heading into the final inning. And we did it
with two outs."
Apopka drew first blood in its first op-
portunity. Xavier Miller drew a walk and
then two batters later, Chase Wood found
the left field gap to give his team a 1-0 lead.
With Colton Griffis returning to the
mound after he started the opening game
of the tournament and pitching solidly,
Apopka then took the lead for good with a
two-run top of the second. Walks to Jordan
Bostwick and Griffis set the stage. With
two outs, Jared Tyner hit a hard but field-
able grounder to the third baseman who
failed to come up with it cleanly. The two
runs scored.
The lead was cut to one run during the
third on the strength of two consecutive
Oviedo singles and a stolen base.
But, after both teams got a batter on
base without being able to advance him
during the next inning, Apopka made its fi-
nal push to win the pool as it put the game
away during the fifth inning. It began with

Miller once again. This time, he was hit
by a pitch. He stole second base and two
batters later, Chase Wood stroked a liner
through the middle to increase the lead to
4-2. Josh Morse finished off the victory in
style as he took an Anthony DeCarlo pitch
into the left-field gap for a double.
Once again, Griffis gave Apopka what
it needed as he went the first three innings
and gave up Lake Mary's only two runs.
Only one of them was earned. He also
gave up four hits and walked a batter. Most
importantly, he did what has become the
theme of this year's tournament; he got
Lake Mary to hit into outs when he needed
to, as he prevented them from turning one
run into a game-changing rally.
After DeCarlo's double during the first
inning, Griffis induced the next batter to
hit a grounder to the second baseman and
leave a runner in scoring position stranded.
During the second, with men on first and
second with only one out, the next batter
hit a weak fly ball which was caught by the
first baseman. Then, the next batter hit a
grounder to third base, ending the inning.
Lake Mary began the third inning with
two consecutive singles, but two fielder's
choices which went to second base quelled
the rally and the inning ended with a weak
grounder to second.
Wood took over the mound chores to
start the fourth and made sure there would
be no more Lake Mary potential rallies as
he retired nine of the 12 batters he faced.
He gave up a double to lead off the fifth,
but he induced the next three batters to
weakly hit the ball to the first baseman (a
fly ball), the catcher (a fly ball), and the
shortstop (ground ball). The double was
the only hit he gave up. The other two run-
ners came by way of base on balls.
After Casey Grubbs pitched the first
four innings for Lake Mary, he was re-
placed by DeCarlo. The duo gave up only
four hits while striking out six, but the three
walks they issued, as well as a hit batsman,
directly led to three of Apopka's runs. Two
of the runs they gave up were unearned.
Wood put up one of the best statistical
nights a player can as in addition to what
he did on the mound, three of the four hits
and two of the three RBIs for Apopka came
by way of his bat.
"We got three innings out of both of
our pitchers," Anderson said. "They got the
first strike on the batters. It put pressure on
them (batters) and forced them to put the
ball in play. We gave up only two walks.
We didn't hit as well as I hoped we would
and had been, but the couple of times we
had them on the ropes, we knocked them
out. We made the most of those opportuni-
"We will be playing a very good

Apopka team in the championship game.
It should be a very good game. Both of
us know each other's strengths and weak-
nesses. I am happy both of us made it to
the championship game, keeping it in the

Apopka 9-10 National 22, Oviedo Na-
tional 1
The Apopka National 9-10 team deci-
sively won its first game, but with a berth
in the championship game on the line it
did an even bigger number on Oviedo as
Apopka won by a 22-1 score.
Sending eight batters to the plate dur-
ing the first inning, Apopka scored five runs
and it got only more lopsided from there.
Another four runs were pushed across the
plate during the next inning and then the
final frame saw 13 runs scored to bring the
10-run rule into effect.
The victory began with another pow-
erful pitching performance from Matt Si-
mon. He was supposed to start the team's
opening game, but had to fill in for the
catcher, who was ill, however. He struck
out four during two scoreless innings of
relief work. Against Oviedo, he pitched
3-1/3 innings, giving up three hits and one
run while striking out nine. Asher Ander-
son finished the game pitching the final 2/3
of an inning, striking out the final batter of
the game.
Despite the final score, at one point,
Oviedo had an opportunity to make the
contest a game. Simon issued three walks
to start the second. But with the bases load-
ed, he then struck out the side to subdue the
rally. In the meantime, the offense rattled
Oviedo pitching for a combination of 23
hits and walks.
I tluiwng we did tonight worked,"
Apopka coach Greg Hemming said. "Ev-
erything we practiced worked exactly like
it is supposed to. We don't do it that well
during practice. All the pieces fit together
tonight. Simon delivered. We put the ball
in his hands and trusted he would get us
to the championship game. He hit all his
spots. We had our catcher back tonight and
they have a good relationship. It showed.
"Offensively, we had the batting flu,
the good kind. We got a couple of hits and
it was contagious. I am happy to be play-
ing Apopka American in the champion-
ship game. We will probably see tougher
pitching there. Playing in the Apopka Little
League, we saw some very good pitching
and competition in general, which is why
both Apopka teams are in the champion-
ship game."
The two Apopka teams faced each
other for the District 23 championship
on Wednesday, July 6. A story about that
game is on the front page of this section.

It's time to use your independence

to catch some panfish in area lakes

Hello Folks,

I usually write my articles
on Sunday evening but today
I am writing' it on our Indepen-
dence Day. This is a day we
celebrate our independence and
remember all those who have
given their utmost for our free-
I just want to say thank-
you to those who serve this
nation to protect our freedom.
I do hope everyone had a great
weekend, and you and your
family celebrated it with family
and friends.
I do know that some folks
got to do some fishing I un-
derstand that the panfish have
been bitin' and folks are havin'
a great time catching' 'em. Cap-
tain Linda has reported that
some of the folks in her area
have been catching' their limits
of bluegills and shellcrack-
ers. Folks have been doin' real
good in Lake Monroe and Lake
Folks have been catching'
lots of bluegills and shellcrack-
ers in the Harris Chain, too. The
best lakes to fish in the Harris
Chain have been Lake Carlton,
Lake Dora, Lake Beauclair, and

Lake Griffin. Also, Little Lake
Harris has been producing' some
good catches of panfish. Most
folks are catching' their blue-
gills and shellcrackers on red
worms and crickets. Most folks
are fishing' just off the grass
line. You can also catch some
panfish in open water. You can
locate the panfish in open wa-
ter by smellin' 'em as you go
across the lake. If you smell
'em, you also need to look
for an oil slick or bubbles in
that area. If any of these three
things are present, you should
be able to anchor off and catch
Durin' the summer, the
bass fishing' is either good or not
so good. The bass are schoolin'
in most of the lakes and chas-

in' green miners. Folks are
catching' em on top-water baits,
and swim-baits. If you find'em
schoolin', make sure you have
a lipless crankbait like a Rat-L-
Trap. Some folks are catching'
bass in open water by fishing'
the drop-offs. If you can find
an area where the bass have a
two feet to three feet of change
on the bottom, they will be han-
gin' around on the edges. You
can also catch some nice bass
in the heavy cover by flippin'
with plastic worms and craw-
dads. You need to fish early in
the morning' or late in the day.
If you like to fish later in the
day or at night, you might try
fishing' with a plastic worm.
I like to fish a 10-inch worm
during' the summer. Try usin' a
dark-colored worm like black
or black-grape.
Also, folks have been
catching' some nice bass in the
Holly Chain. Most of the bass
are bein' caught on shiners and
red-shad plastic worms.
Well, I hope everyone had
a great Fourth of July and I'll
see ya next week.
Tip of the week: panfish
Save a few and good luck!

Junior: Apopka scored four in first inning

Continued from page 1B

deserving of it."
Apopka began its drive toward taking the
big lead as soon as possible, sending notice right
away to Maitland it was going to have to play its
best game. Siddeeq Ali led off Apopka's first in-
ning with a single through the right side of the
infield. He advanced to second when Maitland's
pitcher, Corey Heafner, threw wild to first trying
to pick him off.
Two batters later, Brandon Colina gave
Apopka a lead it would never relinquish with
another single. Three more singles by Hunter
Rotarius, Spencer Graham, and Kyle Kelly, and
an error gave Apopka a 4-0 lead. The error was
committed by the third baseman when he bobbled
Drew Wendorf's hard-hit grounder.
Apopka then scored what would eventu-
ally be the winning run during the second. It was
sparked by a towering fly ball which landed in the
left-field gap off the bat of Rhett Whitfield. He
then stole third base. Another solid single through
the middle by Roatrius brought in the first run of
the inning.
More singles off the bat of Wendorf and Gra-
ham loaded the bases. They came in on an infield
single by Kyle Gibson, which was hit deep into
the hole on the right side of the infield. The sec-
ond baseman made an incredible play to stop the
ball on the outskirt of the infield but the throw to
first was late and when the first baseman tried to
get Wendorf at third, he threw it into the outfield.
It turned a one-run play into a two-run event and
the lead changed from 6-0 to 7-0 at the end of two
Whitfield started the game on the mound and
shut out Maitland through the first two frames.
But then Maitland found its bats and scored three
runs during the third and another two during the
next inning.
Apopka responded with the lead being cut
to two and Maitland rising from the depths of a
seven-run deficit to challenge for the victory. The
fourth inning began with another hit from Wen-
dorf as he doubled to the left-field gap. He ad-
vanced to third base on a sacrifice groundout by
Graham and came home on an error by the first
baseman trying to field Gibson's grounder.
A single by Colina and another double, this
one off the bat of Rotarius, brought the final run
in during the fifth inning and re-established a very
secure lead at three runs heading into the final two
innings. Both hits came with two outs.
Whitfield pitched the first 3-2/3 innings.
He gave up five of the runs, but only three were
earned. He gave up four hits and walked five
while striking out six. Both of the unearned runs

came in during the fourth as consecutive errors
loaded the bases. Then Ali came in and gave up a
single to Burs Cullens. However, Ali induced the
next batter to hit into a groundout.
Ali finished the game, pitching the final 3-1/3
innings. He gave up the other Maitland run dur-
ing the sixth. It was also unearned as the runner
who eventually scored reached base on an error
and then another one moved him to second. Cul-
len drove him home with another single.
Maitland countered with Heafner and
Massey on the mound. Heafner was replaced after
only 1-2/3 innings. Combined, the pitchers gave
up seven earned runs and 13 hits. They also issued
only one base on balls.
Rotarius once again led the offense as he
went 3-for-3. Seven of the nine hitters connected
for at least one hit and every position in the line-
up reached base at least once.
Combined, the teams committed 11 errors.
"Whitfield threw 97 pitches, which is what
we needed," Thompson said. "We needed our
starting pitcher to go deep into the game. He got
a great start, giving us that opportunity to build
the big lead. Then, he had some problems during
the middle innings. But he came back strong and
finished the game. He wasn't overwhelming like
he has been on occasion, but he got the outs when
we needed them. He was able to get Maitland to
put the ball into play for the defense to get outs.
And that was the kind of game it was tonight.
"It was very offensive and a lot of scoring
opportunities were created. The winner was the
team which was going to be able to get the most
outs when it needed to. He allowed the defense to
get the outs. Then Ali came in to close the game
out. He held their offense at bay during the final
innings. It took a lot of pressure off the offense
and it scored a couple of insurance runs. But we
feel it is our strength and what it showed during
the series is we can put any of the players in any
position and they are comfortable, including eight
The coach also specifically thanked the par-
ents, Apopka Little League President Gary Odom
and team mom Sharon Sabell for their support
and willingness to do whatever was needed when
it was needed for the team. He also said his coach-
ing staff of R.L. Colina and Paul Vega deserve a
special thank-you as the two made many deci-
sions which proved to be the right ones.
With the victory, Apopka will now advance
to the Little League Florida Section 5 champion-
ship tournament. It will begin on Friday, July 22,
and is being held at South Orange Little League's
field, located at 11800 S. Orange Ave., just north

was one ball hit out of the infield.
The National team countered with Matt Simon
and Tyler Adams, and their combined performance
was also good enough to win a championship
game. Unfortunately for the National team, it hap-
pened to come at the same time as Tyner's brilliant
performance. Simon pitched the first four innings,
giving up two runs on two hits and two walks. Both
of the runs were unearned.
The runs came during the second inning when
the National team's defense made three errors. The
third error allowed Colton Griffis to score from
second as it bounced over the fielder and into the
With one out during the third inning, Chase
Wood singled. He stole second and advanced to
third on an error on the play. Morse then singled to

The final run of the game came during the fifth.
With two outs, Morse singled again and brought in
Wood, who had reached base on a single and ad-
vanced to second on a fielder's choice.
"We just couldn't get the bats going tonight,"
National coach Greg Hemming said. "We gave up
only one earned run. That usually wins ball games.
We got off to bad start. Our first four hitters dropped
their shoulders and hit fly balls to the infielders.
Hitting is contagious, not only when a team does

the bats started and it spread. There were also a lot
of nerves involved. We had some issues before the
game, too."
The American team was able to collect only
five hits and drew one walk. Simon struck out six
and Adams one.
"Both sides pitched great games," Anderson
said. "It was a low-scoring game as it should be
because of the great pitching. The runs were hard
to come by and this wasn't an easy victory. I am
proud of the players. They worked hard through the
regular season and continued to do the same during
the all-star tournament.
"Playing the other Apopka team could have
been cause for the players to lose focus. They are all
friends and played together during the regular sea-
son, but it never happened. They kept playing the
way they did during pool play and kept the focus.
This was a great tournament and day for Apopka.
The two teams went a combined 6-1 and played in
the championship game. We'll see if we can bring
back a sectional championship to Apopka."
The sectional tournament is the next level
above the district in Little League baseball. If the
Apopka American team wins the sectional, then
they would play in the state tournament. The Sec-
tion 5 tournament is being played at South Or-
ange's home facility, The South Orange fields are
located at 11800 South Orange Avenue, Orlando.
The tournament begins on Friday, July 15. Section
5 consists of districts 3, 14, 23, and 24.

Zellwood firefighter retires

By Sherry Brunson
Apopka Chief Staff

Zellwood native Robert
Barrett retired this month after
32 years as a firefighter with Or-
ange County Fire Rescue. Barrett
began his career as a firefighter
by being a volunteer with the
Zellwood Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment in 1972. Through the Com-
prehensive Training and Em-
ployment (CETA) program, he
became full-time there in 1976.
ly oldest brother, Eu-
gene, was a volunteer in the
mid-1960s, just before he went
into the Air Force," Barrett said.
"He was followed by my dad,
Vasco, and brother, Marvin, in
the 1970s. Marvin, also a full-
time firefighter with the Orange
County Fire Department, retired
around six years ago."
Robert was hired by the
Holden Heights Fire Depart-
ment in 1979, then when Orange
County consolidated the fire dis-
tricts, worked as a firefighter for
Orange County Fire/ Rescue.
"I love helping the commu-

Robert Barrett's best mem-
ories are helping the com-
munity and the camaraderie
shared with fellow firefight-

nity," Barrett said. "That and the
camaraderie of the firefighters
are my best memories.
"We saved many lives, but
we lost many lives, too," he said.
"In the 1980s, we lost two fire-
fighters when a roof collapsed in
the Lake Buena Vista area, and
a few years later, while we were
on a call in the Round Lake Road
area, my lieutenant went into car-
diac arrest. We were able to bring
him back to life, although he died

a few years later.
"It is a dangerous job. We
did a lot of training, every day,
to stay ready for whatever would
come our way," Barrett said. "We
see the best and worse sides of
life, but the fire department helps
you get through the hard times."
Barrett said he is a fam-
ily man at heart and considers
himself fortunate to have such a
good family.
"I was blessed with a family
who was able to understand and
accept the sacrifices of being a
firefighter," he said. "I have been
married for 30 years to my true
love, Kim (Douglas). We have
two sons, Jason, 29, and Kyle,
22. All of us, myself, my wife
and my two boys all graduated
from Apopka High School."
Barrett was thankful to
spend the final years before re-
tirement at the Zellwood Fire
Department where he began so
many years ago.
"I started there as a volun-
teer and finished there after 32
years," he said. "It seems like
things came around full circle."

The AHS winter guard at-
tended the 2011 Music-N-
Motion camp at Lake Mary
SHigh School and participated
in dance, flag, rifle and saber.
They received a superior rat-
ing for their home routine and
*- -A were honored, for the fourth
l ..~ 0 year, with the All-Around
SrAchievement Award for out-
'OPkl. x O'- ,K standing team at camp.
