In Memoriam

Cecil Richard Davis Sr.

1942 – 2015


Cecil R. Davis passed away on Tuesday, June 9, 2015 at the age of 72. Cecil was born and raised in Chiefland, Florida and became a lifelong resident of Ocala, Florida in 1965. Cecil was a US Army veteran. Since 1986, Cecil served as the General Manager of the Ranger Drainage District located in the Wedgefield Community of Central Florida. Cecil was a champion and best friend of our community and under his care and guidance the District infrastructure has been enhanced and completely rebuilt. Cecil maintained the highest levels of professionalism and has made Ranger Drainage District into one of the preeminent Special Districts in the State of Florida. Cecil was admired and respected by his staff and the governmental agencies he interacted with including the Army Corps of Engineers, St. John Water Management, Environmental Protection Agency and many Orange County Departments. His knowledge, support and friendship will be missed by all of us in Wedgefield.

My cat, Hezekiah, got out from the enclosure early this morning. He is about 12 lbs and answers to Hezekiah or Heze. He is a house cat so I really need to find him. He is neutered and is up-to-date on all his shots. Please contact Cassandra Wilds at 502-767-9972. My address is 2566 Ballard Avenue, 32833.

Thank you!




My husband picked up a dog after almost getting struck by a car on Dallas. 

Please call for where he is being cared for.

Thank you

Jen & Armando


Found dog on 3/5/2015
He appeared on Starry Street and now found his way to Somerset Street.

He is a very sweet dog.
Black - perhaps part shepherd
Has a small brown spot at the base of his body near his tail.
Didn’t want to risk him getting hit on Starry, Bancroft or Dallas so i have given him temporary shelter. I already have a dog and therefore cannot shelter him long term.
Please call us at 407-568-4420

For further information call 407-254-9200.

This is a FREE program for all Orange County citizens designed to encourage residents to add trees to our environment. Adding trees to the landscape has many long-term benefits. Along with the obvious advantages of shade and beauty, trees provide oxygen, filter pollution, and create habitats for wildlife. In addition, trees replenish our lost tree canopy that has diminished due to storm damage, age, and development. Each county resident must provide proof of residency and will receive up to two trees while supplies last.

Note from the President

I have a request for all residents in the community it doesn’t matter if you own, lease or rent. Please take a walk to the street side of your property and take a good look. Do you see things that need attention and/or that you would not like to live next? Many of you have live in Wedgefield longer than my nine years and keep your property beautiful, but some people have created areas that look like the Bithlo junk yards. This is not fair to the other residents and in most cases violates at least one of the restrictive covenants which we all are subject too. Please take some corrective action before we need to go to an enforcement action.

I hear regularly from residents that I was here first and I don’t care about the restrictions, but we all live together in this beautiful community. We need to take personal responsibility to see that we do our part to keep it that way. This is a community if you chose to be involved that’s great, if you don’t that’s fine, but don’t drag the community down.

Board members and I spend a inordinate amount of time much of it in negative conversation about what are the Restrictive Covenants and who is subject to them, the full text can be found at www.wedgefieldhomeowners.com by clicking on “Rules and Restrictions” in the upper left.

Neighborhood Watch

This Month Neighborhood Watch Information will continue to be published in an ongoing effort to keep our community informed on crime watch matters.


During the last half of AUGUST to the present date of SEPTEMBER 12, 2015 based on Orange County Sheriff’s crime statistics and individual reports not yet reflected in the statistics we have had 5 auto burglaries, ONE in the 20200 block of MAXIM PKWY, ONE in the 20100 block of QUINELLA, TWO in the 19500 block of SEAVIEW, and ONE in the 20500 Block of MACON. And we had a total of 2 RESIDENTIAL BURGLARIES. One in the 18800 block of SABAL, One in the 4200 Block of BANCROFT. Again, I did not receive timely calls on any of the reports so I have no additional information. As long as calls are not being made to me we have no information regarding method of entry or items taken. Additionally, Sunday 9/6/15 9 or more mail boxes were damaged on various streets.

5 Auto burglaries in the period of 30 days tells me that we continue to leave our cars unlocked. 3 of the 5 were in the Estates so the theft is spread out between City and Estates. I got a email from OCSO that said tell your residents to lock their cars. HELLO, THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE SAID IN NEWS LETTERS AND AT HOA MEETINGS FOR THE PAST 10 (TEN) YEARS. I responded back with the statement that I will also encourage parents to INVENTORY their CHILDREN’S ROOMS for items that may have been taken from the unlocked vehicles.

Citizens On Patrol

Wondering what you can do to prevent from becoming a victim? This month’s article will provide tips for protecting your home.


If you were locked out of your house, would you still be able to get in? Maybe you keep an unlocked window in the back, or a hidden key in your mailbox or on top of a window ledge?


You may think this is a good idea, but guess what? If you can break in, so can a burglar! One out of six homes will be burglarized this year. For a small amount of time and money, you can make your home more secure and reduce your chances of being a victim.



Did you know that in almost half of all completed residential burglaries, thieves simply breezed in through unlocked doors or crawled through unlocked windows.


· Make sure every external door has a sturdy, well installed dead bolt lock. Key-in-the-knob lock alone are not enough.

· Sliding glass doors can offer easy access if they are not properly secured. You can secure them by installing commercially available locks or putting a broomstick or dowel in the inside track to jam the door. To prevent the door being lifted off the track, drill a hole through the sliding door frame and the fixed frame. Then insert a pin in the hole.

· Lock double-hung windows with key locks or “pin” windows by drilling a small hole into a 45 degree angle between the inner and outer frames, then insert a nail that can be removed. Secure basement windows with grilles or grates.

· Instead of hiding keys around the outside of your home, give an extra key to a neighbor you trust.

· When you move into a new house or apartment, rekey the locks.

Calling All Green Thumbs


Shirley Hagen and Adelaide Catania were resourceful when a change in program necessitated a new one. They presented a program on Orchids on short notice! They talked about the growing care of orchids and emphasized filtered sun lighting requirements. They recommended a frequent application of diluted orchid fertilizer and to water when dry, about every 10 days is suggested. Two Phalenopsis orchids were given as door prizes.
Connie DeVries and Martha Bradford won!

Our next meeting will be October 1st, we will meet at the Country Club meeting room. We are able to meet here if most of us stay to eat lunch. So plan to stay! Sylvia Cox will be our presenter and she has asked Jennifer from the Orange County Extension Center to talk about flowers in the fall garden, perennials etc., which will do well in Fall temperatures. There will be discussion about the Holiday Party, which is our December 2nd meeting. This is a great time to join the Garden Club, Come on out!

Yard of the Month


Yard of the Month Program - Voting began in April, during the first week of the month. Judging will be done by 3 people on a criteria of the best yards viewed and voted on during the viewing time. A yard sign will be awarded to the winning yard. That sign will be picked up and presented to the next month's winner.




September Yard of the Month


September’s winner is Aurora Lovera and family, 19115 Sheldon


The Yard of the Month Committee for September had a very easy decision. As soon as we saw the beautiful landscaping, complete with a large pond, rock waterfall and small rectangular gazebo with seating for two in the front yard, we knew Aurora Lovera’s property at 19115 Sheldon was our winner. As luck would have it, she was outside working on her gardens with her daughter-in-law and granddaughter when we drove up with the sign. She was warm and welcoming and invited us to see her back yard gardens as well. When you approach this property from the street, the first thing you notice is the large beautiful Bismarck Palms through the red brick and black wrought iron fencing that surrounds the property. Mrs. Lovera stated that her gardens really look their best in April, but we found many beautiful and colorful plantings in her yard in spite of the summer heat. There were roses blooming, Crown of Thorns, Bee Balm, begonias, orchids, including a stunning spider orchid, and cactus and echeveria. One of the small garden areas in a corner of the pool enclosure featured a small date palm as the backdrop for some unusual rocks with Crown of Thorns growing out of them and echeveria and a purple phalaenopsis orchid to complete the arrangement. Mrs. Lovera was born in the Dominican Republic and has been a Florida resident for 23 years. She and her husband were married for 52 years before he passed away in September of last year. They built this home in Wedgefield as a replica of the home they owned for many years in Long Island, New York, where she worked as a professional landscaper.

There were several beautiful yards in this area that deserve honorable mention: 20439 Sheldon, 19232 Somerset, 20551 Starry and 20859 Reynolds are also nicely landscaped and maintained yards.

Firewise Communities


Fall is beginning to be in the air and even though we have a lot of rain, we must always be prepared for a wildfire in Wedgefield. We are a rural area (wildland/urban interface), with many uncleared lots in our midst plus heavily wooded areas on each of our four sides. The majority of the fires that have occured in Wedgefield were caused by lightning however some have been from arson, usually not intentional such children playing with fire or carelessness with matches and grills. So please be careful. Clear off pine needles, dead leaves from rooflines, gutters, decks, porches and along fence lines, that way if a fire is nearby the falling embers will have nothing to burn. Trim your shrubs and any overhanging branches. If ordered to evacuated, do so, making sure all windows and doors are closed tightly and seal up any pet doors. Many homes are destroyed by embers entering these openings. Be Prepared for when a Wildfire occurs in our neighborhood. For more information, visit our Facebook page or go to www.firewise.org.


Visit our booth at the Fall Festival for free literature and have your questions answered. There will be several speakers during the day, including representatives from Emergency Management, Orange County/University of Florida Extension Service, and Wedgefield Firewise. We look forward to meeting you at this fun day in the park.

In August and September we enjoyed “Fresh to Go”, “Outback”, “Applebee’s”, “Longhorn”, “Chili’s” and “Cheddars”.

The movies we saw were “No Escape”, “War Room”, “The Gift” and “The Diary of a Teenage Girl”.

If you are new in Wedgefield and would like to meet some friendly and fun girls, all you have to do is is e-mail janetberglund@bellsouth.net or sylviathad@att.net.

Wedgefield Classy Red Hat Ladies


On the 21st of August 36 “Red Hatters” descended on “Beef O’ Brady’s”. We have not had that many girls in a few years at Christmas time. We had a glorious time! Terry Steinke, Norma Hallberg, Joan Smith and Marilyn Eagen were the hostesses. The visitors were Betty Hudick, Kathy Evans, Charlotte Burges, Sharon May, Rose Gonzalez and Martha Cox. Martha enjoyed it so much that she wants to join us. She belonged to a group in Union Park but that group folded. She has her red hat and purple clothing. Our door prizes were won by Jackie Miner, Mary Ann Kiser, Marty Fioramanti, Donna Powell and Helen Unser. Everyone left with a pearl necklace, a lovely fan and Peacock feathers. A few liked them so much that they left with 5 or 6 Peacock feathers. The birthday girls were Connie DeVries and Joan Smith. Each got a “Birthday Hat” and a horn and red beads. Terry Steinke led us in a game called “Language of the Fan”. We had to guess what the fan is telling us when you deploy the fan around your face. Five of us stayed for dessert and visited with the owner and one another.

On September 18th we are heading to the “Outback” restaurant. The hostesses will be Paula Harris, Connie Shepherd, Jan Berglund and Theresa Jones.

On October 16 the hostesses will be Nancy Stickrod, Dottie Kiser and Sylvia Cox. Our luncheon will be held at the “Blue Heron” restaurant in Titusville inside the “Great Outdoors”. There is a new General Manager (David Miles). He is from England and real friendly and helpful. We have checked it out several times and we will have a private room. Our menu will be a House Salad with Balsamic dressing, Escallop of Chicken with rice and asparagus. Our dessert will be Biscuit Glace, Chocolate Ganache, Tea and Coffee included for $15.00. Tax and Tip extra.

See you in all the familiar places – Sylvia

REMEMBER: None of us are getting out of here alive: Eat the delicious food, be silly, be weird and be loving.



On September 24th the “Huggable Red Hatters” will be celebrating their 1st anniversary. We will be having a Birthday Party at the Wedgefield Golf and Country Club. The hostesses will be Joan Smith, Jan Berglund, Karyl Ralston and Sylvia Cox. We will wear our birthday colors which will be a purple hat and a red outfit, just the opposite of a regular meeting. We will order from the menu. We have 18 members and 8 members from the “Classy Ladies”.

On the 26th of August we enjoyed the “Tea World” in Titusville. There were 12 of us. Then a few of us went to the Antique Mall to shop. On the 30th of August eleven of us enjoyed the Titusville Playhouse; the play was “The Little Mermaid” (Ariel) who longed to leave her ocean home; it is a lonely love story for all ages. Then we dined at “El Leonci Mexican Restaurant”. On August 13th Joan Smith and Sylvia Cox traveled to Melbourne to dine with the “Black Hatters”. We wear black hats, black clothing and lots of bling. There were 26 “Black Hatters” at the “Brazilean Restaurant”. They brought skewers of steak, chicken, pork and ham to our tables. You could eat as much as you wanted.

In September19th we are going to a “Talk Like a Pirate” luncheon at the “Lobster Shanty” in Cocoa Beach. Everyone will dress like a pirate and there will be a prize for the best costume. – Sylvia

REMEMBER: Life is short – eat dessert first!

The history of the neighborhood plays a vital part in the identity of its residents. If you have lived in the neighborhood for many years, the neighborhood history is a heartfelt reminder of days gone by. If you have just come to call the neighborhood home, it is a way to learn more about the new neighborhood you have just joined. We would love nothing more than to be able to share the history of the neighborhood name with all who reside there.


The American Lutheran Church purchased the first church site in “Rocket City”. They bought 5.7 acres and were waiting for 100 homes to be built but about that time, “Rocket City” went into bankruptcy. Magna was started in December 1977 by Bankers Life and Casualty Company to manage, develop and market properties in which they had an interest. Magna owned “Cape Orlando Estates”, “Avon Park Estates”, “Compass Lake Hills”, “Rolling Hills” and “Rolling Ranch”. To serve “Cape Orlando” 6,800 acres, 81 miles of streets, paved to Orange County specifications were built at an estimated 1978 cost of $4,500,000.00. The water and sewer plants were providing service to 34 occupied homes as well as the Country Club. Being designed were $2,000,000.00 of new water and sewer facilities that would be able to serve 1,500 additional homes. The total construction and development costs for 1978 alone exceeded $8,000,000.00. The most easily seen improvement was on the 7,000 yard, 18 hole, par 72 Country Club Golf Course. In 1978 an average of over 200 golfers were using the golf course each weekend.

Community Emergency Response Team



Wedgefield CERT was well represented at the annual “Hurricane Expo” on Saturday, June 6th at the Fairgrounds thanks to Cindy Bethoney, Howie Torres, Victor Alzona and Phil and Helen Unser. We were joined by a group from Apopka who had graduated in April. This year, the CERT booth was the first booth inside the doors so we had a crowd of people stop by for goodies (flashlights, whistles, band aid holders) and information.

We owe a big “Thank You” to Harwell “Quill” Quillian for constructing and hanging the doors on the shelves in the pavilion at the park. Thanks to him, much of our gear is now stored there under lock and key. This place was chosen because we will set up our command post in the park should we have a hurricane or other disaster.

We haven’t been given a start date for the next CERT training session so if anyone is interested in taking the course please contact Helen Unser at punser@cfl.rr.com. The course will take 3 hours a week for 6 to 8 weeks and will cover Light Search & Rescue, Light Fire Suppression, Medical Operations (assessment, treatment & hygiene), Disaster Operations (triage & treating life threatening injuries) and many other very useful skills.
