Monthly Adopt-A-Tree

Saturday, Sep 13  ~ 8am to 12pm

Magnolia Park, 2929 Binion Rd., Apopka FL

 

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

WEDGEFIELD SHOOTING:
At our last Member Meeting Captain Brett Meade, our Sector 2 Commander, spoke to us about the shooting incident that took place here in Wedgefield. He wanted to assure us that it was an “isolated” incident and that our community was still a safe place to live. There is accurate information in the Orlando Sentinel and with the local media outlets, much more than I could tell you here in the newsletter. Take a close look at the “Shooting Suspects Wanted” flier in our newsletter that we received from CRIMELINE. Captain Meade responded to many questions from our residents that were present. He wanted to assure us that he “Works For Us” and welcomes our input and concerns. He gave us his email address and phone number and said he wants to hear directly from us. His contact information is: 407-448-6089 (cell), 407-254-4810 (office), email brett.meade@ocfl.net.

WEDGEFIELD SCHOOL:
The WHOA is still in the process of attempting to collect accurate and factual information concerning the Wedgefield School. We are waiting to get the right information from the School Board and from the County Commissioners office. Once we get the information we will publish what “their” responses are. Stay tuned…

My Thanksgiving Feast


As I feasted during Thanksgiving dinner, I was faced with the knowledge that others may not be as fortunate as I am. I know that there are people within my own 32833 zip code that may not have the means to nourish their bodies with a daily meal, yet alone a thanksgiving dinner. And there are others who do not have shelter to protect themselves during the cold of the night and call the open streets their home.


As I continued to feast fully knowing that half way around the world at the country of my birth, the Philippines, there were hundreds of thousands of displaced people living in make shift tents, waiting for days without food and water thanks to the most powerful natural disaster recorded to happen; Typhoon Haiyan.

Neighborhood Watch

Each 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 JULY to Present date of AUGUST 15, 2014 based on Orange County Sheriff’s crime statistics and individual reports there was ONE Attempted Residential Burglary in the19300 block of SARMUNDHAM ST and ONE AUTO BURGLARY in the 2300 block of ALABASTER AVE. The attempted residential burglary was foiled by a dead bolt that prevented entry and they were scared off when the alarm went off – nothing was taken according to the owner.
 

Additionally, I had 3 phone calls regarding KNOCKS at the DOOR well after dark – ONE was at 9:45 PM. TWO were asking for individuals that did not live there and ONE was a solicitation for AT&T. Calls to the OCSO were not made but residents made the people know they were home. Remember if someone at your door frightens you or asks for HELP the quickest way to get help is a call to 911.
 

In addition to the reported crimes and incidents we also had a double homicide in the 3700 Block of Bancroft. Captain Brett Meade our Sector 2 Commander addressed our August 13th General HOA meeting and advised residents present that the crime was an isolated incident and others need not be fearful.

Calling All Green Thumbs

 

Green Thumb Garden Club met on the first Thursday of August, the 7th. We met at the meeting room in the Wedgefield Country Club. Adelaide Catania and Shirley Hagan were the hostesses of this meeting. Club Leader Dulce Rodriguez opened the meeting and introduced Lee Breedlove who was representing Firewise in place of Mary Prescott. Lee shared information about keeping your home safe from fire danger by planting fire resistant plants near your home and keeping oily plants to the outside of your property, if you plan to grow them. A pamphlet about protecting your home from fire was shared with those present. Also, a bookmark.

Next month, on September 4th, we plan to meet at the Country Club parking lot at 9 am to carpool to Leu Gardens, Kathy Bruce is hosting this event. At least 10 people need to attend, to have a guided tour. More than the needed 10 signed up at the last meeting, but we still want you! I will send out an email to everyone who has an email listed. Watch your email! Then meet us at the Country Club parking lot, 9am on September 4th.

Firewise Communities

 

We have endured a lot of dry weather in Wedgefield which increased the amount of fuel and the danger of a wildfire. Now, however, we are having a heavy rainstorms that thankfully would keep a fire from spreading so rapidly. With these daily storms we have lightning which can easily start a fire when it strikes something on the ground. Before the next storm, check that the limbs of nearby trees are not hanging over your structures, that low hanging limbs are removed and clean up any ground debris. We live in the lightning capital so we need to adapt and prepare.

 

Florida Forest Service and Ranger Drainage District have selected some areas in Wedgefield for creating firebreaks. The bids have been submitted to Tallahassee and hopefully before long we should see some work being done. The creation of firebreaks can slow if not stop a ground fire by reducing the fuel. Thanks to Cliff Frazier, Wildfire Mitigation Specialist with Florida Forest Service for finding and applying for this grant.

 

Thank you for your support and for being “Firewise”
Mary Prescott, Chair

Wedgefield Classy Red Hat Ladies

 

Twenty nine “Red Hatters” traveled to “Eagle Creek Golf and Country Club” on July 18th. The hostesses were Nancy Runyan, Bea Christensen and Carol Edwards. The winners of the games were Karyl Ralston, Joanne Cobbs, Debbie Goderis, and Ruth Oliver. The door prizes were won by Mary Ann Kiser, Rosemary Wolfe, Ann Grimes and Stephanie.
 

In July some of the “Red Hatters” went to visit Carol Edward’s new home in Baldwin Park and some “Red Hatters” took a picnic lunch over to Sherrie’s home and we got to see her precious babies. A few of us also visited Marty. “Red Hatters” are always trying to make everyone feel special. We should visit a few of our friends every month.
 

On August 15th, 31 “Red Hatters” are heading to “Bahama Breeze”. The hostesses will be Joan Smith, Terry Steinke, Norma Walberg and Marilyn Eagan.
 

See you there - Sylvia


WELCOME NEW RED HATTER
 

Terry Steinke enjoys the “Red Hatters” and is one of the hostesses for the month of August. She also belongs to the “Lunch & Movie Group” and is able to attend most of the gatherings. She really enjoys movies and then watches the Academy Awards so she has lots of winners. She also belongs to the “Red Hat Book Club” in Wedgefield. She loves to read, cook and sew and is taking a quilting class that lasts a year. She likes to listen to music and checks out all of the garage sales.


She and her husband attend the “St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Oviedo. Terry has a huge collection of Nativities and displays them in her home.


Terry worked for 30 years as a school teacher in Lutheran Churches and has lived in 9 different states. She has 3 children and 3 grandchildren and her perfect day is to rise early and spend time with the grandchildren either at the beach or in her swimming pool. She is an asset to our group.

“PRAYER GROUP”

 

We started a Wedgefield "Red Hat” Prayer Group six years ago. Those that are on the prayer group are: Sylvia Cox, Jan Berglund, Joanne Cobbs, Alta Deevers, Connie DeVries, Lillie Douglas, Marilyn Eagen, Theresa Jones, Eleanor McGill, Arlinda Phills, Nancy Runyan, Joan Smith, Nancy Stickrod, Jean Terry and Rosemary Wolfe.


We pray for family, friends and neighbors and Sylvia sends “Get Well” cards and “Thinking of You” cards and we visit those that are sick. If the patient is seriously ill, we e-mail the rest of the “Red Hatters” to send cards and make phone calls but as a rule, it is just the ones in the Prayer Group.


REMEMBER: Let us know of anyone that needs our prayers by notifying one of the above names.

Community Emergency Response Team

 

During the past few months, some members of the Wedgefield C.E.R.T. have been participating in National Table Top Training Sessions and one thread in each session pointed out a short coming in our Wedgefield plan: In each session, a priority issue was to check on the handicapped, the disabled and the elderly. With over 6,000 residents in Wedgefield, we must have some people who fit within these categories. Before Hurricane Season begins, we need your help locating these residents!

 

Do you know of anyone in the community that is on oxygen, needs insulin for Diabetes, on dialysis, uses an aid for walking or has a Care Giver that comes to take care of them? We would like to know in confidence who they are, in case of an emergency. If we know where they are, we can be sure to get help to them as quickly as possible. This information would be kept to our team and would only be used in the event of a disaster in our community. If you are aware of anyone, please have them contact Helen Unser (407) 568-9659 or e-mail: punser@cfl.rr.com or Cindy Bethoney (732) 221-8370 or e-mail: cynebet@gmail.com.

 

The Office of Emergency Management will hold C.E.R.T. training at the City of Orlando, Emergency Operations Center, 110 North Andes Ave. Orlando, FL 32807 (behind City of Orlando Police training area, follow EOC arrows) starting on Tuesday April 22nd and on six consecutive Tuesdays through June 3rd. The classes will run from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. with Graduation on Saturday June 7. Anyone interested should contact Cherie Boyce, (407) 836-9097 or e-mail: cherie.boyce@ocfl. This training will prepare one for handling emergency situations, medical operations, fire safety, utility/hazardous materials, light search & rescue, radio communications and much more.

Wedgefield K-8 School News

 

Wedgefield Special Edition

Clarification of Misinformation

I have been informed that there might be some misinformation being shared in the community about the new school.

OCPS requested a land use change in 2010 from Rural (R 1du/10ac) to Educational (EDU). This land use change was approved on June 22, 2010 by the Board of County Commissioners. The land use for this property is now Educational (EDU) which permits a school by right (nothing else but a school can be built on the property).

The next step involves the County reviewing the rezoning for performance issues such as height, access issues, traffic, setbacks. If OCPS were to request something outside of the land development code (for example a six story building) the BCC could deny the rezoning because a six story building in a rural service area could be considered incompatible.

OCPS has followed all comp plan policies and land development code regulations in this process.

A question was asked of me this morning if the school had been delayed and the answer is no. This is the process that we go through for all of relief schools when you are building on land that has never been a school.

At the community meeting on August 27, you will see the design for the school and we will walk the attendees through the county process.

Please feel free to contact me with any question you might have at 407-376-0191 or at joie.cadle@ocps.net

If you hear something and you don’t think it is correct, please ask.

 

Sincerely,

 

Joie Cadle
