Ocoee Commission selects

1 city towing company

By Suzan E. Kurdak
Although the city of Ocoee
had been using various tow-
ing companies on a rota-
tional basis and had received
good service from all, the
contract bid was awarded
to a single company at last
%week's commission meeting
- Car Store. Cirt officials
strongly debated on this is-
sue for almost an hour.
For years, when wrecker
towing services for public

roads and city vehicles were
needed, the city utilized sev-
eral different companies. Yet.
officials were concerned that
residents were being charged
different rates. Additionally.
the rotation list was increas-
ing and that created the need
for additional staff time to
verify new companies and
also for tracking purposes.
City purchasing agent
Joyce Tolbert spoke before
the commission and said that
the estimated current annual

towing charges for the public
roads is $130,000, about 740
tows annually. The current
annual cost for city vehicles
is $10.000 at approximately
85 tows annually, which
costs $140,000.
A request for proposal
(RFP) was sent out for lo-
cal toting services to bid
on. and the city was asking
for contracts that would pro-
vide for the tow ing of city

Old Times

Writer reminisces about Santa's big wreck


Christmastime's a-comin', and I am think-
ing of Christmases 64 or so years ago. Back
in those da) s, Santa Claus had to have many
helpers because transportation and com-
munication were not so modern. Santa was
everywhere trying to find out the children's
S ish lists.
One of those places was Chilton's 5 & 10.
A Santa helper was there to visit. He never
promised the children they would receive all
they asked for or wanted: he knew that many
parents could not afford all of it. One particu-
lar Saturday. an 8-year-old boy said to Santa:
"You are not Santa Claus. There is no Santa
Claus." Santa asked him to be nice and not
spoil Christmas for the little children.
The boy. who was eating a strawberry ice-
cream cone, put it right in Santa's face and
beard. Sometimes. Santa gets no respect -
and this particular Santa helper does not like
strawberry ice cream to this day.
A soft snow was falling on a Friday just
before Christmas break, and about two inches
of snow was on the ground and road. Three
one-room county school teachers Will
Long Cole, Gladys Choates, Mary Harvey
- and Santa Claus (who was in full dress
because there were no dressing rooms) met
up and were riding together to their differ-

ent schools. It was the day of the Christmas
programs, and all the children were getting
treats: gifts, apples, oranges and candy.
Mr. Cole was driving his black, two-door
Ford coupe, and in the trunk were all the
boxed treats. Ms. Choate was in the passenger
seat, and Ms. Harney and Santa were in the
backseat. They had traveled the Old Monti-
cello Road a few miles when Mr. Cole lost
control of the car on a curve on a hill. The car
swapped ends and landed upside-down in a
big ditch. Neither door would open, but Ms.
Choate w as able to roll dow n her v indon. She
crawled out, and Santa Claus followed.
It %wasn't hard to get a passing car stopped
with Santa waving to them. Two men stopped.
and soon they had Mr. Cole out. They had to
go through the trunk to get MNs. Harvey out
after removing all the treats.
They were all shook up and sore for a fe"w
days. There were no Christmas programs at
these schools that year....It was cold and
someone also took us all home.
I don't think that car was ever repaired.
Mr. Cole drove it for years with big dents in
the top and side.
I was that Santa Claus. Perhaps I needed
a sled.

From Editor's Notebook: Sally Osburn of
Windermere (4 years old) was describing to
her parents, Kitty and Karl. a Christmas pic-
ture she had made at nursery school. "This
is the baby Jesus. and this is Joseph. And
Mary has gone shopping." (Where else would
a mother be the week before Christmas?)
Mrs. Dan (Anne) McKinnon took her oath
of office as the newest member of the Valen-
cia Community College Board of Trustees
from Judge Richard Cooper. She had been ap-
pointed to the post by Gov. Reubin Askew.

Bray Hard\w are is now celebrating its 70th
anniversary as a Winter Garden business, a
long span of time for a retail establishment
in a town of this size. Something that might
interest the Guiness Book of World Records is
the fact that the dimensions of the store are 20
feet by 177 feet making its shape roughly
like a mile-long hotdog or a railroad train.
Another unusual characteristic of the store
is that it is a brother-sister operation. George
Bray and Evelyn Bray Lease are carrying

The old Winter Garden depot on Plant Street
is once again "back on track" not railroad
action like the old days but merchant and of-
fice action. An antiques and collectibles shop,

The Reading Reindeer is a literacy awareness project of
The West Orange Times to encourage children to read
and parents to read to children.
During the book drive Reading Reindeer will collect new oooks for chil-
dren, also collecting donations to purchase books to continue the gift of a
copy of Dr. Seuss's ABC book to each child born at Health Central through-
out The year. The goal this year is 3,000 new books and donations of
$4.500. Checks should be made payable to Reading Reindeer and mailed to

Ocoee resident was Mayflower descendant

Few people in Ocoee might realize
that one of their own was a descendant of
Richard Warren, who came to America
on the Mayflower in 1620. Marie Wells
Davis, 86, lived her final years in Ocoee
and was buried in the Ocoee Cemetery
on Nov. 19.
A native of South Schroon, N.Y.,
Marie came to Ocoee with her parents,
Arthur and Edna. The long New York
winters were taking their toll on fam-
ily members, who later appeared on the,
1945 Florida State Census. They, includ-
ing sibling Rita Thigpen, who lived on
the "hill" across from Starke Lake.,
While working as a stenographer at
the 14th Air Force Base in Orlando, Ma-
rie met and married Harold Ray "Pete"
Davis in 1946. They had two sons, Mike
(who married Ann Marie King) of Geor-
gia and Gary (who married Darlene Too-
tle) of Clermont; three daughters, Rose-
anne Davis in Ocoee, Cheryl (and John
A.) Barry of Mississippi and Kathleen
(Jimmy) Ritten of Alabama; grandchil-
drefn, Michael A. Davis Jr., Austin Hol-
land Davis, Lance Gary Davis, Stepha-
nie Resch, Mathew James Ritten, Jacob
Christopher Ritten and the late Amy
Teresa Davis; and great-grandchildren,

Arthur may have been on one of two
ships, Charity and Swan, following the
Mayflower in June of 1622 that carried
50 or 60 men.
, According to Ancestry.com, a popu-

The West Orange Times

vehicles at a reduced cost, with no charge
for Class A (up to 10.000-pound) vehi-
Brad Dresher of the Ocoee Police De-
partment was on the selection committee
and helped evaluate the towing services
based on convenience and safety, as well
as cost. It was the staff's recommenda-
tion to award the bid to Car Store, as it
had come in the lowest.
Commissioner Gary Hood said he liked
the businesses that were utilized in the
past' and was still in favor of spreading
the work to them and wanted the com-
mission to consider continuing with a
blended rotation.
Car Store owner Todd Paquette said
his bids were based on the condition that
his business would be the sole receiver
of the award.
He added that he was able to offer,
such low rates because, "We bid it to
win it."
Also in attendance at the Dec. 6 meet-
ing were representatives from Acer and
Sly's Tow ing.
Sly Falding said Sly's could do a
blended rate. His rate is $125 a tow, and
there is no. charge for city vehicles. He
added that his location is safe %w ith guard
dogs and securitN on the premises.
After some discussion. Ocoee Malor
Scott Vandergrift said: "We already have
a winner, and the winner is really our
citizens. If we went back to a blended
rate. costs would be raised."
Hood agreed and said: "We have to
think about our citizens. If staff did it
without asking 'what we [commissioners]
w' ant if we wanted to have a blended
* rotation we need to direct them."
Commissioner Joel Keller felt the re-
quest for proposal might have been mis-
leading as it read: "The city intends to
award a contract to one or more..."
Hood said. "In all fairness. I wouldn't
kno' w\vh\ wve wouldn't want to go back
and give the other companies the oppor-
runity to offer a discount as well."
Commissioner Rosemary Wilsen said
she agreed with the discussion of getting
a good rate.
S "'I'm concerned with What oui- citizens
are going to pay, their security\ and what
our city has to pay." she said.
The mayor then made a motion to go
v ith the lowest bidder, but it died for,
lack of a second.
Commissioner Rusty Johnson ques-
tioned the contract length it was bid
out for five years with the option of a
one-year extension. Several of the com-
missioners also felt that was too long.
Hood made a motion to award the con-
tract to Paquette for three years. Again.
the motion died withoutt a second.
Keller said he felt strongly) that com-
panies responding to the RFP did so

with two different thoughts: one, that
they would be the sole towing company
and could, therefore, offer a substantially
lower rate; or, two, that the towing pro-
gram would remain' blended and rotated
as it had been with the city for the past
17-20 years.
After 45 minutes of discussion, Wilsen
said she was very disappointed that it had
come to this point.
,"Direction should be given by the
commissioners before it goes to RFP,"
she said.
A replacement motion was made
to bring it back to staff and award the
three contractors present at the meeting
a blended contract for three years. That
motion failed, as well as the original mo-
Wilsen said."An RFPwas sent out,and
we have to lie by what we requested."
Hood, Wilsen and Vandergrift voted,
to award Car Store as the sole tow-
ing business for city vehicles for a
two-year term, while Johnson and
Keller voted against the motion.
In other business, the commission: ,
approved taking advantage of lower
interest rates regarding the 1999 Capital

disrepair and it faced foreclosure. The
Bond Foundation,; led by a group of local
investors, purchased the Burch Building,
along with its neighboring property to the
,south at 24. S. Main St., with the-intent of
renovating and restoring the buildings to
their former glory. The Fagade Matching
Grants approved by the CRA last Thurs-7
day, amount to $20,000 for the former
Burch Building and the same amount for
24 S. Main St.
The side of the building facing Main
Street had been covered with green titles
for decades, but those little squares have
been peeled off to reveal the original ex-
terior walls of the downtown district's
first brick building. Construction crews
began work earlier this year gutting both
buildings, which together amount to about
19,000 square feet. Grant funds will be
used to help co% er the costs of exterior roof
replacement, exposing the original brick,
window replacement, relocation and re-
placement of doors, storefronts on ground
-floors and a new\ hard canopy. Once com-
pleted, the Bond Foundation plans to make
the space available for retail business.

Valencia ill recei e a $600.006 prize
to support its programs.
The remaining four national finalists,
including Miami Dade College in N.i-

The announcement made earlier
this week at the National Press Club
in Washington. D.C. involved leaders
from across the fields of education, busi-

The original pool of more than 1,000
community colleges was pared to 1i20 in
April, based on a data formula created
with assistance of an expert advisor\
committee. The data focused on college
completion, improvement of completion

under-represented students, based pri-

schools increased their NGA graduation rate from
2009-10 to 2010-11 with increases between 0.2 and
14 percentage points.
The district graduation rate is the highest-ever based
on the National Governors Association Graduation
Rate, which is the official method used in the calcu-
lation of school grades. Under the NGA rating, the
district graduation rate has increased each year since
2006-07, for a total of 10.3 percentage points from
69.7 percent in 2007-07 to 80 percent in 2010-11.
The graduation rates show the percent of students
who graduated within four years of their initial en-
try into ninth grade. Certificate of Completion and
GED recipients are not counted as graduates using
the NGA method.' Calculation of the graduation rate
is based on students completing high school in four
years. All students in the calculation for 2010-11 must
have entered ninth grade for the first time in the fall
of 2007.
The district and school-level dropout rates for
OCPS high schools were also released b3 the state
Department of Education. The district rate decreased
by 0.5 percentage points from 1.7 percent in 20(16-07
to 1.2 percent in 2010-11. although the graduation rate
and dropout rate are not directly comparable.
The graduation rate is a four-vear indicator of the
percentage of students w ho started ninth grade to-
gether and how many of them graduated together four
years later. The dropout rate is a single-y ear indicator
of students in grades 9 through 12.

Ocoee High names Salapa new head football coach

Former DP coach
returning to sideline
with the Knights.

By Chris Mayer

Nearly five months.after departing the Dr.
.Phillips football program, Dale Salapa has
found a new coaching home at Ocoee High.
Recent speculation concerning Salapa's
coaching status was answered last Friday af-
ternoon when the Ocoee Athletic Department
released an official statement, announcing he
has been hired as the new football coach ef-
fective Jan. 1 .Salapa replaces Clint Moles,
who officially steps down from the position
this week.
Salapa will be the Knights' third head coach
since the new Ocoee High opened in 2005.
The Ashland I Ohio) University alum follows
Moles, who posted a 14-37 record in five sea-
sons. including a 2-18 mark the last rwo y ears,'
and former West Orange High quarterback
Greg Dailer, who is the head football coach
at Arlington High in Washington state.
"I'm excited. I think Ocoee is going to be a
great situation." Salapa said. "DP was great.

but DP is an existing program that's had suc-
cess in the past and had some high-profile
guys come through.... I was out at Ocoee [last
Saturday] walking the complex and check-
ing some things out. You get a sense that it's
almost like it used to be up in Ohio where I
played for North Royalton, and then you'd go
play Brecksville or some other neighboring
towns or communities. That's kind of how I
grew up, and I think this is a great commu-
nity and I hope they're going to be excited
Salapa was named the 2010 Florida Dairy
Farmers Football Coach of the Year after guid-
ing Dr. Phillips to the 6A state championship
game and a 14-1 overall record. (However,
in July, the Panthers forfeited those victories
and vacated their title game appearance after
self-reporting the use of an ineligible player:
Salapa %wound up stepping down shortly there-
after, and DP promoted Rodney Wells to head
Salapa compiled a 35-4 record during three
prolific seasons with the Panthers. whichh fea-
tured three consecutive udes at the Metro Con'-
f- erence and district levels. Mean while Ocoee
finished 2-8 this season anmd a regular-season
schedule that included iSL playoff teans. and

Salapa, who currently resides in Gotha and
teaches at Dr. Phillips High, said he thought it
was the right time to return to the sideline.
"I actually have had a great season off,"
Salapa said. "Me and my wife have enjoyed
the rime, and I think it's like when I came
to DP. When I was at Trinity Prep we had
just come off the state championship baseball
game and I had a bunch of kids coming back
in that program and the DP thing came up. I
wouldn't interview for every job, and there's
some schools that I just wouldn't be interested
.in going to, but when this Ocoee [coaching
position] came up and IT as approached with
it, it just felt good. It just felt like the right
thing, and I think it's the right opportunity at
the right time."
Ocoee relied hea\ ilH on its talented defense
this season. thile a relatively inexperienced
offensive group learned the % arsitr ropes. The
Knights dropped their final six games and that
included close decisions against West Orange.
Oly mpia and Winter Park.
"In high school and I really don't care
what level it is your offense and defense
and special teams havegot to feed off of each
other," Salapa said. "They 've just got to doit,:
and I know that [the Knights] didn't seem to


play a lot of guys both ways and that's some-
thing I'm certainly going to look at, because
you %want to play the guys that do the right
things and the guys that are your athletes."
Before arri ing at Dr. Phillips, Salapa
served as football defense e coordinator and
head baseball coach at Trinirn Prep % here the
Saints' baseball team earned Class 3A state
runner-up honors in 2007.

Ocoee boys soccer blanks Warriors

Knights take
unbeaten district
record to Apopka.
By Chris Mayer

Ocoee boys varsity soccer
coach Peter Moore is enjoying
the view as the Knights continue
to climb the standings,
The Knights are preparing for
this Thursday's visit to Apopka
High. where they have an oppor-
tunity to win for the sixth time in
seven matches prior to the holi-
day break. Start time is 7:30 p.m.
as Ocoee returns to the field for
the first time since earning a 1-0
home victory over Class 5A Dis-
trict 5 rival West Orange.
Ocoee completed its initial 10-
game stretch through the regular
season %w ith a 6-4-0 record. The
Knights dropped one-goal de-
cisions to Timber Creek, Lake
Highland Prep and Boone in
mid-November. but they' quickly
rebounded with wins over Colo-
nial, E\ ans. Wekiva. Dr. Phillips
and West Orange.
The only recent blemish was a
5-0 loss to national power Mont-
verde Academy on Dec. 6. Ocoee
trailed only 1-0 at halftime be-
fore the up-tempo Eagles struck
for four goals over the final 40
"I think we're in a great spot
at 4-0 in the Metro [West] Con-
ference and 3-0 in the district."
Moore said. "We're sitting 6-4
overall and you look at our

schedule and we dropped one to
Timber Creek. we dropped one
to Boone and %we dropped one to
Lake Highland Prep. who are all
maybe one-loss teams. And, of
course, we played Montverde and
we had a great game. We made a
defensive error to go down 1 -0
and then we hit the post twice.
We came in at halftime and we're
down 1-0 and it could be 1-1 or
maybe 2-1, and then in the sec-
ond half [the Eagles] just exposed
some things. We made four mis-
takes in the second half and they
found the back of the net, but I
think those are the type of teams
where kids can learn a lot. You
at look my roster and I've got
younger kids on there. I've got
some maturity on the roster, but
I got a lot of younger kids."
Moore said the Knights are also
starting to get healthier. Junior
midfielder Sergio Zetina turned
in a strong performance against
West Orange last Thursday in his
second match back from injury:
Zetina's straightaway blast near
the top of the 18-yard box directly
led to a West Orange own goal
with 25:45,remaining in the sec-
ond half.
"[Last Wednesday] I finally
had every player able to run and
I still was one down for train-
ing," Moore said. "It's tough
and maybe I've got the injuries
out of the way here. but I know
West Orange said they have a lot
of injuries right now, too."
West Orange and Ocoee played
to a scoreless halftime draw. The

Warriors' Evan Cartw right had
one of the better first-half chances
w hen his header off a comer kick
sailed just over the crossbar.
Ocoee stepped up its attack ear-
ly in the second half, forcing West
Orange freshman goalkeeper
Heiko Ziegler to be sharp. Ziegler
made three acrobatic saves in
rapid-fire succession t\o on
headers in the 6-\ ard box and an-
other along the right post two
minutes in: and shortly thereafter.
Cartwright cleared away a loose
ball along the goal line after
Ziegler charged off his line to
disrupt a partial breakawN ay.
"I thought [Ziegler] really kept
them in the game. in my opin-
ion." Moore said. "Where I'm
happy is we kept following the

play ed relentless for four quarters and we kept
the pressure on, and eventually both of the first
two teams we played [Lake How ell and Spruce
Creek] kind of broke down. The game against
Lake Highland Prep presented another challenge
for us, but I "was pleased w ith the way Erik Nlec-
Cree played and some of the other guy s, too. And
