Town acquires land for new
By Kathy Aber
The Windermere Town Coun-
cil has been negotiating for sev-
eral months to acquire the final
piece of property to construct
intersection improvements and
a traffic circle at the corner of
Main Street and Park Avenue
next to Windermere Elementary
Town Attorney Tom Wilkes
told the council at its October
meeting he had "good news."
The town had reached an agree-
ment to acquire the final piece
of property required to create
the traffic circle and ease con-
gestion, particularly at school
opening and closing times.
Wilkes said town resident Ken
Ward, the agent for the property
owner, had accepted the town's
offer to purchase the property
Ocoee votes to add
Rose Hill to its JPA
By Mary Anne Swickerath
Will the Rose Hill subdivi-
sion on the southeast border of
Ocoee become part of the city?
That has not been decided,
but at its regular meeting last
week the Ocoee City Commis-
sion voted 5-0 to put all three
phases of Rose Hill in its joint
planning area (JPA) with Or-
ange County. This action does
not annex the property, but it
lays the groundwork for future
action on annexation.
A group of Rose Hill resi-
dents spoke during the public
hearing on this matter. Tony
Adams, president of the Rose
Hill Phase 3 Homeowner As-
sociation, told the elected of-
ficials that the residents of his
area want to be annexed by the
citi as do residents of Phase
2. Residents from both phases
have met with city staff to dis-
cuss what it would mean to
come into the city.
"There are obvious advan-
tages to being part of Ocoee,"
But the majority of Phase 1
residents signed a petition ask-
ing not to be annexed, accord-
ing to Shawn Jensen, president
of that area's homeowner as-
The Ocoee commissioners
assured the Rose Hill residents
that voting to add their areas to

serving in a variety of roles while her two children attended. She has an
accounting background a valuable quality and an apparently sincere
desire to Improve the lot of Orange County students."
"Ms. Curtis Is an advocate of limited school vouchers for private schools,
sending one of her children to a private school even as she campaigns
for a public-school office. Other moments from Ms. Curtis' past are
worrisome. Ms. Curtis says her views have evolved over time. We're not
convinced. At least voters can feel fairly certain Laura Keller Isn't running
with a hidden agenda."

accessible health care!
Bryan Nelson knows that good health is a precious gift... and, to
ensure our continued good health, the medical care we receive must
be accessible and affordable.
That's why Bryan Nelson has taken up the fight to protect the
quality of our health care.
Representative Bryan Nelson was a prime sponsor of the Windows
of Opportunity Act after meeting Caitlyn Staples and understanding
the daily challenges those with autism face. The Window of
Opportunity Act was a bipartisan approach to treating autism and
other developmental disabilities for children in Florida, increasing
health care for these children, "
and access for lower-income .

cancer has also been a
passion of Bryan Nelson's.

As a longtime resident of Winter Garden,
I was surprised that The West Orange Times
advised the citizens of West Orange County
to vote no on Amendment 2. I was further
taken aback by the reasoning used in the
First, the claim is that the amendment is
unnecessary since there are laws on the books
that prevent gay marriage. Massachusetts,
California and Connecticut each had similar
marriage laws that were summarily overturned
by a few activist judges. By taking existing
Florida law and adding it to the Constitution,
Floridians can avoid the same thing from
happening in our state.
Next, the contention is that this amendment
aims to prevent homosexual and heterosexual
partners from receiving benefits from
employers. This assertion has already been
knocked down by the Florida Supreme Court.
Before even one of the three-quarters of a
million petitions was collected by a grass-roots
effort to get the amendment on the ballot, the
ACLU brought that argument before the court.
In Florida, the rules are that every amendment
must cover only one subject. The Florida
Supreme Court ruled that this amendment
covered the one subject of marriage and will
have no impact on civil unions or partnerships,
contractual agreements, estate planning and
will certainly not affect senior benefits in any
The overwhelming majority of Floridians
believe that marriage should continue to be
defined as a legal union between one man and
one woman. I urge our residents to vote yes on

No on Amendment 8
Amendment 8 proposes adding a
change to the State Constitution that
would require the Legislature to autho-

a local-option sales tax to supplement
community college funding. This tax
would be in place in five-year incre-

The original members of
Ocoee Christian Church began
worshiping together in 1883 in
each other's homes. In 1889,
Gen. William T. Withers set aside
a sum of money with which to
build the church and arranged for
construction on a lot donated by
Captain and Mrs. Bluford Sims.
The church's design was planned
along the lines of the Gothic ar-
chitecture of the European cathe-
drals, having the pointed arched
roof and high steeple.
The interior has graceful but-
tresses supporting the roof, and
the floor plan follows that of the
cathedrals having the shape of
Gen. Withers did not live to see
the house of worship completed.
However, his widow, assisted by
a Boston architect, completed the

furnishings that were provided
by the Gen. Withers family are

Isabel Crudle spoke of Jim's
dedication to Boys State: "He
raised money so that my son
Steven could attend Boys State.
Today he is a student at Cornell,
an Ivy League university. I give
Jim credit for that: Steven plans
to donate a scholarship to Boys
State in memory of Jim."
Boys State is a program that
trains high school students in
leadership and citizenship. The
American Legion and Ameri-
can Legion Auxiliary sponsor
the program. Young men who
are selected attend the program

junior and senior years in high
A half-sister, Sonya Yost,
said she was a nurse because
of Jim's influence. "He was a
firefighter from 1967 until he
retired in 1980. During that time
he saved lives and helped those
who were suffering. I wanted to
be in a helping profession too,"

Commander Ed Bowers said
that when Jim transferred into
the Ocoee American Legion Post

He arranged for six boys to attend
Boys States since 2005. When
the old Ocoee Fire Department
building was being demolished,
he arranged for the flag pole to
be moved to the front of the Tom
Ison's Veteran's Center.
During the ceremony, Boy
Scouts from Troop 198 in Ocoee
raised a flag in Jim's honor on
that very pole. The honor paver

The Warriors and Knights collide at the line of scrimmage during Ocoee's victory in the
annual Battle for the Shield.
Knights top Warriors to keep Shield
A pair of big plays proved
to be enough for the Ocoee
Knights to overcome rival West
Orange in a defensive struggle
last Thursday at OHS. Ocoee
prevailed 21-7 to retain the
coveted Shield trophy.
Rahmel Workman broke free
for a 40-yard touchdown run in
the first quarter that would be
the first half's only score. On
the opening kickoff following
halftime, Workman broke West
Orange's back with a 92-yard
touchdown return to put Ocoee
The Warriors moved the ball
well on offense but couldn't
capitalize on opportunities to
reach the end zone. Despite
doubling Ocoee in time of pos-
session and racking up yard-
age on the ground, West Or-
ange managed only one score.
Woods capped a Warrior drive
with a four-yard TD run in the
third quarter that cut Ocoee's
lead in half.
Austin Flowers, who rushed
for 34 yards on six carries, put
the game away with a one-yard
touchdown midway through
the fourth quarter. Workman
finished with 52 yards rushing
and 144 all-purpose yards. -
"Our offensive line played
well and gave the backs holes
to run through," said Ocoee
Head Coach Clint Moles. "The
defense played at a high level
and bent but didn't break."
Moles also praised the play
of receiver Rockey Vann,
kicker Patrick Moore and pass
rusher Chris Devaughn.
The victory upped Ocoee's
record to 2-5, while West Or-
ange fell to 1-6 and is still in
search of its first district win.

Members of the Ocoee High Student Government perform their skit based on the song
'Be Our Guest' from 'Beauty and the Beast.' OHS students received 1 of only 2 standing
ovations that evening for their performance.
Students and staff members congratulate Officer Michelle Grogan, the Ocoee High
Support Person of the year, and Rick Kann, administrative dean, the OHS Teacher of the
Year Both have earned the respect of students and staff through their caring manner and
commitment to keeping the school safe so that the vision of 'Every Student Will Graduate'
can come to life. Both Grogan and Kann are members of the inaugural staff and work
every day to create a strong, positive and safe learning environment for everyone.
School wins SASC
Ocoee High Student Govern-
ment will lead the Student As-
sociation of Student Councils
as president of the organization.
Following thee days of speech-
es, skits and campaigning, the
votes were counted and OHS
was named to the top position.
This leadership role means
that OHS will host the 2009-10
SASC convention. A year of plan-
ning will go into the conference,
where more than a thousand stu-
dents from throughout the South
will come to Ocoee and the com-
munity for three days.
The school will need commu-
nity support both in service and
in funding this opportunity for
young leaders to come together
and leam what it means to really
make a difference.
SASC is an organization of
member schools from Alabama,
Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Ken-
tucky, Louisiana, Mississippi,
Missouri North Carolina, South
Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Vir-
ginia and West Virginia.
Ocoee High PTSA is partici-
pating in the 2008-09 National
Reflections Program. The pro-
gram is structured for PTAs to
recognize students at the local
unit, council, state and nation-
Reflections is an arts recog-
nition and achievement pro-
gram that was established in
1969, and since that time more
than 10 million students have
participated. It is a good way
for students to explore and
learn about various art forms
inspired by the theme.
The theme for this year is
"WOW." Students may en-
ter original works of art in six
categories: photography, vi-
sual arts, literature (including
poetry), musical composition,
dance choreography and film/
Entries are first judged at
the local unit level, and works
are chosen to represent the
PTA at each subsequent level.
Once entries reach the state
level, they may be selected
for submission to the National
PTA. Awards of Excellence
and Awards of Merit are rec-
ognized at the annual National
PTA Convention and are dis-
played as part of the program's
The excitement of Windermere Prep's upcoming Fall Festival was evident on, campus
with the announcement of the 2 students who will star in a Radio Disney commercial,
which will air the 2 weeks preceding the festival. A wristband presale contest was held,
and 6th-grader C.J. O'Brien clinched 1 of the spots by selling the most wristbands.
Fourth-grader Sage Casey won the drawing of all who had participated in the presale
contest. Pictured are (l-r): WPS Headmaster Bill Ford, Tina Pun from Radio Disney,
O'Brien, Casey and Michele Bastone from Radio Disney. This is the first year Radio Dis-
ney will be participating in the festival with fun activities, including Disney karaoke and
trivia contests with prizes. The festival will be held Nov. 7, from 6-10 p.m. on the school
campus. Attractions include a mechanical bull, Velcro wall, obstacle challenge, Robo
Surfer, rock wall and slides in addition to face-painting, games and prizes and food.
For more information on the festival, call Lori Lombardi Ryan at 407-948-5706.

One hundred percent of do-

to help communities in some
of the poorest areas of Africa
and Asia create long-term so-

projects ensure that moth-

healthcare, more girls and
boys stay in school and farm-
ers are taught to improve their
crop yields so they can feed
their families and increase

Windermere Elementary 2nd-graders had a visit from the Ocoee Fire Department
recently. The firefighters talked to the children about fire safety during Fire Prevention
Week. They did this in a fun way by using puppets and catchy songs. Lt. Mike Reed
spoke to the students about the importance of knowing how to tell if there is a fire
at home, using 911 and the 'safety dance' of stop, drop and roll. They concluded by
answering questions from the children. Pictured are: (front) Euclides Rodriguez, Megan
Ford, Julia Batzer, Josh Mitchell Baltazar, Hunter Heath, Shuhey Wada, Henry Paulson,

As I See It...
A Comment & Study of the Scriptures Remembering George Gano
"I am the vine; you are the branches.
Ifa man remains in-me and in him, he
will bear much fruit; apart from me you
can do nothing."
I was watching TV the other night and hap-
pened to notice a popular fitness company
highlighting a guy in his forties in fabulous
shape. The mid-life bulge had melted away,
revealing six pack abs and anAtlas chiseled
chest that would shame most young men.
As I polished off the last of the chips, the
urgency of getting back in shape became
painfully obvious. There I sat a humbled
member of the flabby majority. Most of us
want to look good, but we simply aren't
willing to pay the price.
When Christ spoke in terms of looking
good it was from the inside out. It's not that
God doesn't care about toned bellies and
firm posteriors, it just a matter of having
healthy priorities. Taking care of the spiri-
tual core trumps any other core that may
need our attention. The world doesn't em-
brace this way of thinking and it's evident
by the evening news...things are out well
out of control. When we bend our will,
towards Christ all the other aspects of our
life come into balance. Something good
begins to happen!
Christ doesn't simply want us to be better
versions of our old self...he wants to trans-
form us into new people. The fruit of this
new life is characterized by love, joy,
peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith-
fulness, gentleness, and self-control. Jesus
is not calling us to act out these qualities
but to actually become them. What would
the world look like if more of us started
abiding in Christ and stopped working so
hard at just looking and acting good? Most
of us aren't willing to pay the price, but
Christ already did....wejust need to remain
in Him and let His spirit do the work with-
