Thousands of Winter Garden
residents found themselves as-
signed to new voting districts
After months of debate
among city officials and a
last-minute threat of legal ac-
tion opposing the measure, the
City Commission passed an
ordinance redrawing Winter
Garden's district map. As a
result, District 4 lost approxi-
mately 7,000 citizens, which
drew opposition from that re-
gion's commissioner, Colin
Sharman,\ and Jim Gustino,
a local attorney who lives in
"I have serious concerns
from a legal perspective,"
Gustino told the commission.
"This map violates the City
Gustino cited a section of
the charter requiring that "the
aggregate length of all district
boundaries shall be as short
as possible." The redistricting
board, he argued, had not been
properly directed to address
this requirement during its de-
The commission appointed
the citizen-based redistricting
board in April in compliance
with a City Charter mandate
that no more than a five per-
cent difference in population
can exist between districts.
The task required allocating
Winter Garden's 31,000 popu-
lation so each district would
consist of roughly 7,500 resi-
dents. District 4 had about
twice the allowable number of
people, resulting in districts 3
and 4 each picking up between
3,000 to 4,000 voters south of
West Colonial Drive.
The elected officials twice
postponed voting on the or-
dinance this summer. At the
July 24 meeting, Sharman
proposed overturning the new
charter referendum rule that
requires commissioners to live
in the district they represent
because he felt too much em-
phasis might have been placed
on protecting incumbents dur-
ing the redistricting process.
Without any support among
his elected officials, the com-
mission moved ahead with the
ordinance last Thursday on the
advice of its legal staff.

defensible in court," said Dan

Superintendent Blocker announces
formation of Budget Study Committee
School districts throughout
Florida will face even more
serious budget cuts next year
than in the current year. Orange
County Public Schools Super-
intendent Ronald Blocker is
taking the proactive step of
forming a Superintendent's
Budget Study Committee.
Experts and community
stakeholders will review the
recommendations for budget
cuts in order to balance the
budget for 2009-2010 while
still serving the purposes and
goals of the district's strategic
plan. The "citizens" team will
focus on budget recommen-
dations from district staff to
examine congruence with the
strategic plan and the impact on
the community. A "technical"
team comprised of budget and
finance experts from local busi-
nesses and institutions is being
gathered to look at the cost
analyses of the recommended
cuts and the impact on district
Blocker will ask for names
from 22 organizations around
Orange County to serve on the
"citizens" team. It is a model
similar to the recent School
Board Governance Study Com-
mittee, which recently provided
findings that were accepted and
supported by the board.
According to Superintendent
Blocker, "I am confident that
with many good minds looking
at the budget we will do the best
we can to advance our effort to
lead students to success with
the support and involvement of
families and the community."
The committee should be se-
lected by Oct. 22.

Dear Winter Garden Mayor John Rees,
Over the past several years, we have heard from
Chamber member businesses and community
leaders in Winter Garden that the current ordi-
nance that relates to the sale and service of alcohol
has negative impacts on businesses. They realize
that the ordinances of Orange County and Ocoee
put Winter Garden businesses at an economic
disadvantage over like businesses in these sur-
rounding areas. Our businesses and the Chamber
understand the need to change this ordinance so
that current Winter Garden businesses will enjoy
a competitive environment and also attract new
business to the city.
We applaud the city of Winter Garden com-
mission for considering the impacts of the cur-
rent ordinance and seeking to amend it in order
to create an economic equality with our surround-
ing communities. To show support of this action,

"More and more clients are
coming to us and asking about
sustainable and energy efficient
housing," she said. "We had done
some research, but it wasn't until
I went through the course that I
learned how involved this is."
The three-day certification
course was designed to help bro-

there claiming to be green," said
Bozkurt. "If I don't know what
that really means and can't quan-

Researchers find bad sign of global warming
Permafrost blanketing the northern hemisphere contains more
than twice the amount of carbon in the atmosphere, making it
a potentially mammoth contributor to global climate change
depending on how quickly it thaws, according to a group of
nearly two dozen scientists who collaborated on a paper in the
journal Bioscience. The lead author, Ted Schuur, is an associate
professor of ecology at the University of Florida.
Schuur and his colleagues estimate the 1,672 billion metric
tons of carbon locked up in the permafrost is more than double
the 780 billion tons in the atmosphere today.
"It's bigger than we thought," Schuur said.
Permafrost is frozen ground that contains roots and other soil
organic matter that decompose extremely slowly. When it thaws,
bacteria and fungi break down carbon contained in this organic
matter much more quickly, releasing it to the atmosphere as
carbon dioxide or methane, both greenhouse gases.
The new estimate is important, Schuur said, because it mirrors
other climate change science suggesting that at a certain tipping
point, natural processes could contribute significant amounts of
greenhouse gases, supplementing human-influenced, industrial
processes that release fossil fuel carbon.
Schuur said the release of greenhouse gases could approach
.8-1.1 billion tons per year in the future if permafrost continues

Readers write about their favorite cookbooks
By Mary Anne Swickerath
Last month, we asked for
readers' opinions regarding
their favorite cookbooks,
and the answers are interest-
ing and varied and sev-
eral even added a favorite
recipe or two. Here are the
best of the responses:
Muriel Keogh, Orlando: "I
have been using the GoodHouse-
keeping Illustrated Cookbook for
more than 40 years. It is, without
a doubt, the best cookbook I own.
There are more than 500 pages,
1,300 recipes and 96 pages of
full-color photographs for plan-
ning the meal. I have many other
cookbooks, but I always end up
using that one mostly for din-
ner. I love to cook, and that book
is my bible."
Betsy Sushinsky, Orlando:
"I have been a faithful fan of the
Barefoot Contessa program on the
Food Network for several years.
Ina Garten's approach to cooking
really appeals to me simple
fresh ingredients, fresh herbs and
not too much fuss interesting,
full of flavor and presented beau-
tifully. I identify with her desire
to enjoy herself while cooking
and entertaining or just making
a lovely dinner for her and her
"I think Barefoot Contessa
at Home is her best cookbook. I
have many favorites, but Roasted
Shrimp With Orzo is on top of the
Cathy Marques, Orlando: "I
must have more than 100 cook-
books, but my favorite is any of
the Barefoot Contessa cookbooks.
I always seem to pull one of those
off the shelf and have loved ev-
erything I have made from any
of them. My family and friends
always ask for her coconut cake.
"But one of my favorite recipes
is one I got from a friend about 15
years ago. This was her friend's
recipe and is so good. When I
passed it on to my friend, Letty,
I called it Cathy's World Famous
Everyone's Talking About It Blue-
berry Cake. When she was in the
grocery store and finally looked at
the recipe, she called me laughing
hysterically. Here it is:
Carol's Blueberry Cake
I box Duncan Hines Butter

2 cans blueberry pie filling
16 oz. cream cheese, softened
I large container Cool Whip
1/2 cup each confectioner's and
Vanilla (just add some)

recipe. Bake in two round or
square pans. Cool on wire racks.
Cut each layer in half (dental floss
works great). Top first layer with

all the way to the edges or it will
drip over. You will not use all of
the second can, but one can is not
Mix last four ingredients to-
gether and frost cake. Chill well
before serving and keep leftovers
Letty Ginther, Orlando: "My
favorite cookbook is the one I
wrote while sitting at my parents'
kitchen counter after getting them
to repeat all the old family recipes
they had carried around in their
heads for years. Food and meal-
times are very important in my
family, and these dishes are the
food I grew up with but can't find
in any published cookbooks.
"I finally got all the tips on
how to make my mom's delicious
black beans and exactly how my
dad gets his arroz con pollo to be
so moist. I also found out how my
grandmothers made all the dishes
I so loved as a little girl food
that is inextricably tied up in my
memories of both women.
"I don't really have a favorite
recipe, but my husband, Tom,
does, and it is one of the sim-
plest. Unfortunately, as with all
these recipes, the quantities are
2 lbs. of ground turkey, beef or
venison, browned. Drain it and set
aside. In same skillet add olive oil
(about 2-3 Tbls) and saut6 2 diced
onions, 1 diced bell pepper and
5 or 6 diced cloves of garlic for
about five minutes at medium
Add the meat back in and then
add tomato sauce (medium can)
and ketchup, enough to coat the
mixture. Also add some raisins,
olives and capers and a little white
Cover, reduce to low heat and
simmer for about 30 minutes.
Serve over rice. It actually tastes
better the next day.
Rosemary Casley, Ocoee:
"My favorite cookbook is my
big three-ring Betty Crocker that
I received when I was married in
1961. I have a lot of other cook-
books, but it's the one I go to first
when looking for a recipe."
Karen Brown, Dr. Phillips: "I
have many wonderful cookbooks.
I even have one from WWII that
has recipes that use few ingredi-
ents like 'no eggs' because food
"One book I love is from a se-
ries of cookbooks that I got when
my husband, Art, was on active
duty in the military. It is called
Recipes on Parade Foreign
foods, 1000 World-Wide Favor-
ites of Military Officers' Wives,
printed in 1970.
"The first recipe in the book
is by Pat Nixon,' Chicken Poly-
nesian. There is a list of great
restaurants around the world in
the beginning of the cookbook.
The recipes come from so many
places Europe, Asia, the Medi-
terranean just everywhere. It
is like globe-trotting. This is a
book that is just fun to read to
see where military wives were
stationed and how they adapted
to the food where they 'planted'
a new home."
Patti Matchett, Dr. Phillips:
"My favorite cookbook is still
the one my mother gave me for
Christmas 1972, a year after I got
married Betty Crocker's Cook-
book. I have never been much of
a cook, but this book has seen me
through it all over the years. Both
front and back covers are tom off,
and the pages are no longer in or-
der, but I still pull it out when I
want to make the old favorites
like stroganoff and scalloped po-
"I'm sure the book is a biologi-
cal health hazard since I am also
a messy cook and most of the in-
gredients of things I have made
over the past 36 years remain on
the pages in some form of decom-
"My mother passed away a
month ago, so seeing her in-
scription on the cover, 'To a dear
daughter, Merry Christmas, 1972,'
brings a tear to my eye."
Rosemary Gates, Winter
Garden: "My favorite is the good
old standby GoodHousekeep-
ing Cookbook, 1973 edition. Ithas
all the classics and basic recipes.
The binding is taped together, and
the pages are yellow, but the con-
tents are tried and true."
Michela Petrucci, Orlando:
"I mostly make my own recipes
up as I go; however, I received
a copy of the Pennsylvania State
Grange Cookbook as a gift about
15 years ago. So I would say if
tattered pages say anything about
a cookbook, these say 'well used.'
This cookbook has a few recipes
for the same thing, which shows
there are many different ways to
'skin a cat,' so to speak. It also
uses mostly basic ingredients
that are not a hardship on a fam-
ily food budget."
Shelley Huber, Orlando: "I
got a cookbook years ago that
was my mom's. BetterHomes and
Gardens New Cook Book with a
1981 copyright is paperback with
a red-and-white checkered table-
cloth pattern, whose pages are
spattered with ingredients from
"The book has all the basic
recipes for everything from meats
to veggies to desserts. My favor-
ite one is Green Beans Especial,
which includes ham and butter,
so everyone who eats it loves it.
I've used recipes from this book
for 25 years."
Jacque Bagley, Winter Gar-
den: The Blue Moon Revisited
is my favorite cookbook. It was
from this book:
(6 to 8 servings)
6 to 8 flounder filets
2 10 oz. frozen chopped spin-
4 T. chopped onion
1/2 Ib. fresh mushrooms
4 T. dry vermouth
3 C. medium cream sauce
1 C. grated cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook spinach and drain well.
Saute mushrooms and onions in
butter until tender. Add vermouth
to cream sauce. Combine spinach,
mushrooms and onions with about
one cup of cream sauce. Season
to taste. Place spinach mixture in
greased shallow casserole. Sea-
son flounder with salt and pep-
per. Place over spinach. Cover
with remaining sauce. Sprinkle
grated cheese over sauce. Bake
at 350 degrees E for 45 minutes.
I sometimes use scallops and
shrimp along with the flounder.
2 T. Butter
2 T. Flour
1 C. Hot Cream
Heat butter in heavy sauce pan
until it bubbles. Stir in flour with a
wooden spoon. Adjust heat so but-
ter continues to bubble but is not
hot enough to scorch. Continue
stirring over this medium heat 3 or
4 minutes. Remove from heat and
slowly stir in hot cream. Return
to medium heat and continue stir-
ring with wire whip until sauce is
thickened. Add seasonings. You
may need to raise heat a little so
mixture almost boils before it

Susan Batten, Winston-Sa-
lem, N.C. (formerly of Wind-
erlakes): "The very first time I
lived far from my sweet mother's
kitchen and all her homemade
recipes, I was in North Caro-
lina, the summer before I started
graduate school. My husband
was already working and I spent
most of my days trying not to be
too incredibly lonely, not having
made any friends yet since school
had yet to start.
"One particularly dreary af-
ternoon, unable to reach anyone
on the phone, I curled up on my
couch intending to eat a pint of
something, watch TV and cry.
But that day I happened to turn
on Paula Deen's cooking show.
Her exuberance and warm ac-
cent reminded me so much of
my mother, and her food re-
called a childhood filled with
Southern culinary delights. The
pint of whatever melted away as
I stared, rapt, scribbling down
"After that, every afternoon
I hunkered down for my com-
fort TV hour with Paula, her
voice and her insanely buttery
meals pushing some of the ter-
rible loneliness out of my heart.
By the end of the summer, I'd
bought her recipe book (the very
first I'd ever bought for myself:
The Lady and Sons Savannah
Country Cookbook), learned to
make artery-clogging delicious-
ness, and put on about 10 lbs. But
my husband was delighted I was
no longer homesick, and cook-
ing was fast becoming my very
"For the sake of my health, I
don't make all Paula meals any-
more, but I still cook just about
every night, and she inspired me
to be creative in the kitchen and
unafraid to try new techniques.
I still love that cookbook, and
Paula's legacy of kindness has
become attached to its now-sticky
pages: Whenever I am making
treats for a friend, co-worker or
just for my husband's latest bad
day, I am able to turn to its fa-
miliar dog-eared pages and feel
confident as I begin to create my
own little version of Paula's 'best

Panthers hammer Cypress Creek
Junior wide receiver Kenny
Shaw set school records with
nine receptions for 137 yards
and two touchdowns as the
Dr. Phillips High football team
roared to life in the second half
to crush host Cypress Creek
Shaw shattered Ryan Moore's
record for receptions in a game
(8) and NFL veteran Doug Ga-
briel's mark for receiving yards
(121). Shaw has now caught
passes for more than 100 yards
in three straight games. Quar-
terback Nico Ranieri completed
17 of 20 passes for 239 yards
and three touchdowns.
Shaw hauled in a 31-yard TD
pass from Ranieri to cap a 65-
yard drive in the first quarter.
The Panthers. extended their
lead before halftime with a 46-
yard Ranieri-to-Shaw touch-
On DP's opening drive of the
third quarter, Ranieri ran five
times for 39 yards to set up
sophomore Dee Hart's seven-
yard touchdown run. On the
next Panther possession, the
offense marched 50 yards in
only three plays, culminating
with a 24-yard touchdown run
by Hart. The fourth quarter
opened with junior Ricardo
Miller catching a'short pass
and shredding the defense for
a 46-yard score. Bryce Fol-
lensbee split the uprights on a
31-yard field goal to close out
The Panthers racked up 382
yards of total offense while
surrendering only 81 yards on
defense. Hart finished with 200
all-purpose yards, and Miller
totaled 64 yards receiving.
The victory marked DP's
District 5 season opener and
improved the team's overall
record to 4-1. The Panthers

Foundation scores record win for Homecoming
The Foundation Academy
football team celebrated Home-
coming on Oct. 3 with the big-
gest victory in school history,
a 55-0 win over The Vanguard
School of Lake Wales.
The Lions dominated on
offense, defense and special
teams en route to a 41-0 half-
time advantage. The game was
filled with big play after big
play, with Kenny Strong and
Josh Mansingh leading the
way. In the first half, Strong
set a school record with three
punt returns for touchdown
at distances of 55, 65 and 75
yards apiece. Mansingh had
three rushes for 140 yards and
two touchdowns and added a
90-yard interception return for
a touchdown while playing de-
Starting quarterback Wes
Murray added a 35-yard touch-
down run of his own before
Foundation's backups entered
with the game well in hand.
Quarterback J.J. Warmus added
a nine-yard touchdown pass to
Joshua Greathouse to close out
The win marked Founda-
tion's second in a row to im-
prove to 2-2 on the year. The
Lions compete as an FHSAA
independent this year and hope
to secure a berth in the Sunshine
State Athletic Conference title
In other Foundation sports
news, the varsity girls volley-
ball team improved its record
to 13-4 and looks to win its
second consecutive district
championship. The varsity golf
team qualified for the district
playoffs. Alex Gates leads the
Lions with a 36.3 average over
nine holes on the season. The
middle school football team
defeated Windermere Prep
27-8 for its second win of the
year. The varsity boys bowling
team defeated Trinity Prep with
outstanding play by Marshall
Henry and Corey Cross.
Warriors fail to hold lead against East Ridge
A pair of early touchdowns
gave hope that West Orange
High would capture its first
District 4 victory with an upset
of East Ridge last Friday night.
Those hopes were washed away
on a rainy evening that saw the
visiting Knights respond with 48
unanswered points to defeat the
Sophomore quarterback Diego
Qunitanar electrified the home
fans with a 69-yard touchdown
run to open the scoring. Vernon
Frett followed with a successful
two-point conversion run. Min-
utes later, junior tailback Keaton
Postell capped a West Orange
drive with a 16-yard run to the
end zone. Following a failed two-
point run attempt, the Warriors
held a 14-0 lead.
East Ridge cut the margin
in half with a scoring drive to
close out the first quarter. The
Knights tacked on two more
touchdowns for a 21-14 lead at
the break. The third quarter and
most of the fourth belonged to
East Ridge, which posted four
straight touchdowns with a pair
of long passes, a short run and a
30-yard interception return.
West Orange showed heart by
fighting for points in the final
minutes. Qunitanar scored on a
seven-yard quarterback keeper,
but his two-point pass attempt
fell incomplete. Senior running
back Cornelius Sigler hauled in
an 18-yard TD pass from Qunita-
nar for the game's fiial score.
The loss dropped West Or-
ange to 1-4 overall and 0-2 in
district play. The Warriors look
to regroup with a scheduled bye
week and prepare for their an-
nual Battle for the Shield game
on Oct. 23 at rival Ocoee High.
Both teams are in search of their
first district win.

As I See It...
A Comment & Study of the Scriptures Remembering George Gano
Have You Been Kissed By God Lately?
Strange question...how could God kiss me
and why would He want to. May I suggest to
you three ways He kisses.
Prophesy...When the Word jumps out on the
page of your Bible in a way you know it is
just for you, in the moment and circumstance.
you are in. It can come through a child, a
neighbor, a song on the radio, a stranger, and
a friend. You know what I mean. Their words
speak life to a situation they don't even know
of. Yea, that's a kiss from God.
Provision...Have you ever had a need?
That's a dumb question, right? A letter comes
in the niail from the IRS stating an error
from a past year return, and a check falls out
for just the amount to meet that need. Or a
stranger walks up to you in the parking lot to
say "I feel the Lord has asked me to give this
to you" and hands you a $50 dollar bill. Or
maybe just a smile directed at you on a day

you don't think anyone cares or knows what
you are going through. God wants to kiss
your hurt away. Other provisions could be
a good night sleep, a friend in a trying time,
a place to call home, a car to get to work, a
child that you have been believing for, for a
long time, the husband of your dreams, or
even one chocolate chip cookie left in the
bag. These are kisses from God!
Presence...Worship is wonderful and He
does bless us when we intend to enter His,
presence, but I want to talk about some times
you may not think about. For instance, a song
comes on the radio and refreshes your soul;
the stillness of sitting on the front porch and
just whispering His name...Jesus, Jesus,
Jesus; or the creation He has given you to be
awed. Oh, how He wants to kiss you.

The FFA department at
West Orange High has 17
steers living on the school
campus. Of the 17 steers, five
will be shown and auctioned
off at the Florida State Fair
and 12 at the Central Florida

Pigs are due for arrival by
the end of the year and will be

must feed them twice a day,
walk and train them daily for
the show and do the dreaded
cleaning of the stalls.

The students at Foundation Academy walked into chapel recently and were surprised to
see guest Coffey Anderson, veteran of the televised show 'Nashville Star.' He took time
out of his busy tour schedule to come and sing 2 of his songs. With only his guitar and
voice, Anderson brought.the entire audience to its feet, clapping and singing along. To
most of the students this probably was the best chapel that Foundation has ever had
because Anderson did something that no other guest had done before. He connected
with the students through 1 of their favorite mediums music.
Windermere Prep 6th-graders recently
spent 3 days on their Laker Adventure Spirit

unity and teamwork and to depend on
each other while expanding their individual
limits. Working together, the students also
showed their team-building spirit. Pictured
