IN MEMORY OF BOB COBBS

Bob moved to Heaven on June 22, 2014. He and Joanne lived on Macon Parkway for over 20 years. Bob retired from the military where his service included 4 years in the U.S. Marine Corps and the remaining of his 20 years in the U.S. Army.

After years of working, he decided to retire to a life of leisure, loved working in the yard, he loved to play his guitar and sing; he was crazy over his RV and liked to take short trips.

He and Joanne were married 32 years. Bob had total knee replacement and he would walk the neighborhood to try to keep his knee from getting stiff. He would come by my house early in the mornings where I was working in my yard and we would chat over the fence. I would see him at the neighborhood garage sales and also at the “Relay For Life” events. He would always seek me out and we would have sweet conversations.

I will miss him; he was very friendly and had a beautiful smile.

Monthly Adopt-A-Tree

Saturday, Aug 16  ~ 8am to 12pm

Barnett Park 4801 W. Colonial Dr., Orlando 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.

Positive Words

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 JUNE to Present date of JULY 15, 2014 based on Orange County Sheriff’s crime statistics and individual reports there was ONE Residential Burglary in the2900 block of ABALONE and THREE AUTO BURGLARIES, one in the 2700 block of Lyndscape and ONE in the 6200 block of Dallas and ONE in the2900 block of ABALONE.
 
3 AUTO BURGLARIES are too many when all we have to do is “ BAG IT”.
Something as simple as a Cloth Shopping Bag....and a habit – it goes like this “Make it a Habit!”-“Make it a Habit!” Put your Tablet, GPS, Phone, Your Lunch, CD's, Laptop, money, Keys etc. Anything of value you use every day and might leave in your car. Put it all Into a Bag take it with you to Work. When you get home...take it inside with you.” Make it a Habit!” to leave nothing of value in your car to attract attention. By removing pilferable items from our vehicles and locking up or parking in our garage we remove the opportunity for Crime.

Dulce Rodriguez opened the meeting sharing information she had gathered. Janis Thaw was our presenter at this meeting and she shared a lot about Flowering plants, shrubs and trees, most of which she grows on her own property.

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

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.
