     407-855-8585                     Another 7 Eleven

                                        The 7 Eleven company is in the permitting process that will lead to the construction of a new outlet at the southwest corner

  PERMIT 1556

                                      of Conway and Anderson Roads. With the aid of photoshop, we inserted a photo of a 7 Eleven outlet to help visualize what the

                                      corner may look like.

                                      The company is also buying up independent convenience stores and converting them to 7 Eleven outlets. These actions appear
                                      to be a company strategy aimed at thwarting competition from Philadelphia based Wawa stores. Wawa has recently entered the
                                      Central Florida Market with plans to open 100’s of stores along the I-4 corridor over the next few years.

                                      Wawa stores are noted for their freshly prepared hoagies, coffee, competitively priced gas offering and friendly service. Customers
                                      can also order foods including soups, subs and smoothies using in store touch-screens.

not take away from all of the hard work and success the Braves had during the season.
          Besides being proud of the overall season, Head Coach Greg Shirley is
particularly proud of his departing seniors. Coach Shirley says that the seniors on
his team will be missed, “The senior captain, Austin Harris was a great leader as were
Jonathan Pendleton, Tyler Patz and Hayden Hoevenaar.“
          Due to Boone basketball’s success at every level, the Braves have reason to be
excited about next year. Commenting on his coaching staff, Coach Shirley says, “I am
very fortunate to have a great coaching staff. My assistants Jerry Williams and Vince
Carter Sr. were a large part of our success.”
          Boone’s other teams also had successful years. JV Coach David Martinson led
his team to a (15-5) record. Vince Carter Sr. and Spencer Strode led the freshman team to
a (8-4) record.
          With a great foundation and all five starters coming back, Coach Shirley is very
excited about the future of Boone basketball. Returning for his final season and leading
the Braves next year is Schuyler Rimmer. Rimmer led the team in scoring and averaged a
double double (18 points per game and 14 rebounds per game). As a junior, Rimmer has
been offered scholarships from many division one conferences including the ACC, Big

 Oak Ridge High
 2012 started off with a bang for the students
 at Oak Ridge High School. Students moved
 into brand new classrooms with state of the art
 technology. This was followed by Oak Ridge
 receiving a State grade of ‘C’.

 New principal, Dr. Leigh Ann Bradshaw,
 is cultivating a climate of increased student
 achievement and success. Her focus has been
 on instructional practices designed to increase
 critical thinking as well as academic, elective,
 and athletic opportunities for all students.

 Phase II of the building program will be
 completed next year which includes a first class
 gymnasium, performing arts center, and the
 remaining classroom buildings.

The middle school boys and girls Basketball teams at Pine Castle Christian
Academy have much to celebrate these days. After a season of hard work
and determination, they accomplished the top spots in their leagues. For
the past two seasons, both the boys and girls Middle School basketball
teams competed in a league hosted by Foundation Academy.

The middle school boys at PCCA had a terrific season that was capped
by winning the League Championship Title. Their 17 and 1 season
ended with a win over Mt. Dora Bible. The win was extra special as they
made it to the championship game last year and lost in the final seconds
of overtime to Windermere Prep. Coach and Conway resident, Dr. Joe
Sterling, commented that each boy contributed by using their special
talents and all hustled on defense.
