Serrano Assigned New Jude ge' .

After Motion from Both Sides


ByJENNIFER STARLING
Staff Writer

Polk County's largest mass murder case will now
be heard by Circuit Judge Susan Roberts following
a motion from both the defense and the prosecution
for the recusal of Circuit Judge Roger Alcott.
Jury selection began Monday morning for Nelson
Ivan Serrano, the man accused of the quadruple
killings at Erie Manufacturing in Bartow in 1997.
Serrano's attorneys and prosecutors with the
State Attorney's Office filed the motion for recusal
after Tina Hill, a jury manager with the clerk of the
courts, reported she had overheard some potential
jurors discussing the case.
According to the motion, Ms. Hill approached
Judge Alcott and told him she witnessed three to
four jurors talking about how the defendant "should
be killed. because he was only a Hispanic or a
Mexican."
She also said she heard another juror saying in
the presence of other jurors that, in his opinion, the
defendant was guilty.
Judge Alcott, however, failed to notify the attor-
neys of the problem.
The motion further states that on Tuesday, prior
to recessing for lunch, Judge Alcott told both the
defense and prosecution that he would begin jury
selection proceedings at 1:15 p.m., but when the


assistant state attorneys arrived at the jury assem-
bly room prior to 1:15, Judge Alcott was already
conducting the proceedings without the attorneys
for either side being present.
When Assistant State Attorney John Aguero told
Judge Alcott that the proceedings were not sup-'
posed to begin until 1:15, Judge Alcott responded
that "he didn't have time to wait for the defendant's
attorneys," and he continued with the proceedings.
On Wednesday, Serrano's lawyers filed their
third motion to strike the jury pool, and told Judge
Alcott that the state wanted to join in the motion.
"Judge Alcott did not give the state an opportu-
nity to be heard, said it didn't matter, and denied
the motion," the motion states.
The attorneys then presented Judge Alcott with
a written motion for his recusal, which he granted,
and Judge Roberts was assigned to hear the case by
Chief Judge Ronald A. Herring.
The seven-year-old case is now scheduled to go to
trial July 18.
Serrano, 66, a former partner in the Erie
Manufacturing company, is charged with the execu-
tion-style murders of George E. Gonsalves, 69, co-
owner of the company; Frank Dosso, 35, manager
for the company; George Patisso, Jr., 26, employee
of the company; and Diane Patisso, 26, all of Winter
Haven.
All four were killed with small caliber gunshot
wounds to the head, investigators said.

brush fires along the roadside near Crossover Road and Hwy. 17 on before 4:30 p.m., but had to be return later in the evening when the

Family Seeks Help With Care

For Baby With Missing Limbs


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

For most mothers the birth of
their first born child is a happy
event arid a miracle. .
Amea Mitchell was no excep-
tion. When her baby, Jayleen
Mitchell, was born, she counted
her blessings that her baby was
happy and healthy.
As "a premature' baby born a
Lakeland Regional Medical
Center, the birth could have been
difficult but luckily, little Jayleen
.'was perfect.
Until at two months of age a
nightmare began, one every,
mother dreads. Ms. Mitchell's son
was sick.
The baby needed surgery on
his intestines, and part of the
organ was removed. A staph infec-
tion set in, and mother and baby,
along with Estella Reeves, Ms.
Mitchell's mother, returned to the
hospital.
The. doctor's prognosis was
heartbreaking to cure the
infection, the baby's limbs would
have to be removed.
"We waited to see if this would
be. the only way," Ms. Reeves said.
"Hospice had come in, but we still
had hope, and God answered
.those prayers.
"We had so few choices, and
even after making the decision to
have the surgery, the doctors told
us they could guarantee nothing."
Crushed from the news about
her baby's health and as a single
parent, Ms. Mitchell leaned on
he.i mother and looked to her


faith for answers,
"It was just me and my mom,
and we prayed," Ms. Mitchell
said.
Doctors told the family that if
the baby did survive he could lose
his sight and hearing, and even-
tually even become completely
unresponsive. The doctors told
the women the baby may eventu-
ally lose the ability to eat and
would never have an opportunity
for a full life.
"There was just a lot of bad
news," Ms. Mitchell said. "It was
hard."
"It hurt all the time," Ms.
Reeves said. "Somehow God gave
us the strength to keep on. I
would feel like I was losing it, and
somehow, God would give me the
strength to keep going."
Ms. Reeves said while most of
the doctors were not. optimistic
about the prognosis, one gave the
small family hope.
"We had gotten all this bad
news, but I told the doctor, I see a
baby full of life, and the doctor
told me I see what you see."
Now age five months, Jayleen
is an adorably chunky baby, who
giggles, follows voices and
appears to be a very healthy
eater.,
And while his grandmother
works in Bartow at Citrus and
Chemical Bank, his mother cares
for Jayleen full time.
With his many doctor appoint-
ments and his need for constant
care, the family's finances have
come under considerable strain,
even though there, is insurance


for his medical care.
With EKG tests, prothesis fit-
tings and physical, occupational
therapy and other assorted health
appointments, the family is seek-
ing transportation for Ms.
Mitchell, and would eventually
like to find a larger place to live,
not requiring mother and son to
share a room.
For more information on the
family or making donations to
help with Jayleen's care, call
Estella Reeves at 646-8517.

Rejecting a request that right-'
of-way for an ea.tJ-',,-t road be
reserved across, the property,
Bartow's:zoning board voted 4-to-
1 on Monday to approve the pre-
liminary subdivision plat and
development plan for an "active
adult" community at the north
entrance to Bartow.
That vote was another victory
for the Silver Companies and sup-
porters of the development,
including owners of the land on
which it will be built, and another
defeat for neighbors who say
there are too many homes
planned on the property.
A new challenge to the devel-
opment was presented when Tom
.Deardorff, director of the Polk
County Transportation Planning
Organization, asked the .city to
reserve right-of-way across the
Silver property, near the north
end, for a crossover road connect-
ing E.F. Griffin Road and U.S.
Highway 98.
Representatives of the develop-
er strenuously objected to the
request, saying the proposed road
would bisect the gated communi-
ty, separating the north and south
ends of the development. After a
hearing that lasted more than
two hours, they prevailed.
Deardorff said that Finger
Lane an extension of the north
end of E.F. Griffin Road that emp-
ties onto County Road 540-A --
will be closed when the county
four-laries CR 540-A because.it is
so close to the intersection of that
road and Highway 98.
The Florida' Dept. of
Transportation, which plans to


then south to Martin < Luther
King Boulevard, travel east
across U.S. Highway 17 to
Oaklawn Drive, and disband at
Carver Recreation Center.
Participants are. asked to
assenible at Main Street and
Floral Avenue for the parade
line-up at 12:30 p.m.
A carnival will follow the
parade at Carver Recreation
Center. Advance carnival tickets
are $10 per sheet, and may be
purchased from any committee
member.
A teen dance also will be held
that afternoon in the Carver
Recreation gym at 4 o'clock, with
DJ George "Biggs" Collins.
The events are sponsored by
the Bartow Deacon and Stewards
Alliance, and are free to the pub-
lic.


six-lane Highway 98 in seven or
eight years, will allow cross-over
medians only once every half-mile
*on Highw ay 98. The median open-
ing at Catfish Country restaurant
dl.il be closed, he said. The TPO
wants a right-orF-way across the
Silver property to build a
crossover road that would enter
Highway 98 a half-mile south of
CR 540-A, Deardorff said.
The other alternative would
require motorists wanting to turn
north from E.F. Griffin Road to
enter Highway 98 and turn south,
then make a U-turn across a
median to head north, he said.
A crossover road near the
north end of the Silver property
would cost about $1.2 million,'
Deardorff told the zoning board.
Silver has offered right-of-way
across the southern end of its
property for a much longer
crossover road; its estimated cost
would be $4.2 million, he said.
Another problem with the
southern route is that Silver owns
only part of the land between E.F.
Griffin Road and Highway 98; the
rest would have to be purchased
from the owners.
Richard Stiles, transportation
consultant for Silver, told the
board that the company would
give right-of-way for a crossover
road at the northern edge of its
property, but opposed a road that
would bisect the tract. Silver
already has offered land for a
crossover road at the southern
boundary, he noted.
Stiles estimated that trans-
portation impact fees on the
Silver property would produce
about $4 million in revenues, or
almost enough to build on the
southern alignment.
Jack Brandon, attorney for
Silver, said the company was will-
ing to give right-of-way at both
ends of the property.
"Silver Company has tried to
be solution-oriented," Brandon


A Bartow man was killed early
Wednesday morning after he was
struck by a pick-up truck on CR
655A in Bartow.
Charles D. Loyed, Jr., 45, of
1080 Eighty Foot Road, was
.walking in the northbound lane
of the road when he was hit by an
Isuzu pick-up truck driven by
Crystal G. Moses, 21, of
Wauchula, according to Florida
Highway Patrol Trooper H.L.
Denmark.
The accident occurred around.
12:20 a.m.
Moses was not injured,
Denmark said.


told the board.
Richard Tremblay, executive
vice-president of Silver, said a
crossover road bisecting the prop-
erty "ispot of character" with the
development plan, and would sep-
arate the clubhouse at the north
end of the property from the most
of the 1,796 residences on the
550-acre tract. The TPO's propos-
al would isolate the north 85
acres of the development, he said.
"It destroys the viability of the
northern 85 acres," he added.
A road across the northern
edge of the development would be
shorter and would cost less to
build than one that bisected the
property, Tremblay said.
Frank Black, a nearby proper-
ty owner, suggested that the solu-
tion is to build a frontage road
paralleling Highway 98, taking
motorists to a signal-controlled
crossing a half-mile south of CR
540-A.
Brent Geohagan, lawyer for
John and Terry Frost, who live
across E.F. Griffin Road from the
Silver property, said his clients
don't oppose the development, but
do oppose the housing density.
The developer "makes threats
of higher density development if
his plan is not approved," he said.
"Why ignore the laws?" on land
development, he asked, adding
that the developer and his consul-
tants "are not from this area."
He called the development "a
proliferation of urban sprawl,"
and said that the city's land
development regulations require
the city "to insure compatibility
with adjacent land uses."
John Haas of Tampa, land
planner for the developer, said
that the sites planned for housing
are designed to use high ground
for construction, with low ground
for drainage and lakes. The maxi-
mum density would be 6.7 units
per acres for "attached homes,"
and would be lower for other


Loyed died at the scene.

A Lake Wales middle school
student was killed Wednesday
while waiting for his school bus
at the Tower Pointe Apartment
Complex on U.S. Highway 27.
Keith Kenny, 14, was sitting
on the sidewalk waiting for his
bus to take him to McLaughlin
Middle School at about 7:49 a.m.,
Lake Wales police reported.
Dora Cristina Gallegos, 28,
was pullinginto a parking space
in the compTx'pairtnng lot,.in a
1999 Ford F-150 pick-up truck,
when she apparently stepped on


houses, he said.
Brandon called the develop-
ment "a well-planned residential
community," and said it is "totally
inappropriate" for t, -t,.-ount.V t.:
ask the city-fo reserve a crossover
road right-of-way across the prop-
erty.
Frost told the board that it was
"being asked to ignore" the
. request of local transportation
planners, saying the alignment
across the development "is the
safest route. They've offered you
an unsafe route."
At the close of the public hear-
ing, Zoning Board Member Susan
Brewer moved approval of the
plan as submitted by Silver.
When it appeared that her
motion would die for lack of a sec-
ond, Chm. Michael J. Marchman
turned over the meeting to Vice-
Chm. Drew Guffey so that he
could make the second.
"I think it's a beautifully-
designed development," Board
Member Bo Raulerson said. "I
have problems with the density."
He said he favored the
crossover road alignment request-
ed by the TPO for reasons of safe-
ty.
"It may seem unfair to the
Silver Company, but we're looking
out for the entire area," he said.
He moved to table the matter
and ask the TPO and Silver to
look at their options. Guffey sec-
.onded the motion, then voted
against it; the motion to table
died, 4-to-1.
After amending the motion for
approval to require Silver to offer
a crossover road right-of-way at
the north edge of the property as
well as the south end, the board
passed the motion over
Raulerson's dissenting vote.
Voting for the motion were Mrs.
Brewer, Guffey, Calvin Glover,
and Marchman.

The truck traveled over a curb
in front of the parking space and
onto the sidewalk, striking
Kenny. The teen fell under the
truck and was dragged for
approximately 60 feet across the
grass.
Polk County EMS and Lake
Wales Fire Department person-
nel treated Kenny at the scene
before he was transported by
helicopter to Lakeland Regional
Medical Center by helicopter,
where he died.

Twenty-four members and six guests enjoyed the program, "Sa-
cagawea," presented by member Joyce Bode at the Jan. 5 meeting of
the Lakeland Daughters of the American Revolution. Ms. Bode
based her talk on two Elderhostel trips she took last June, com-
memorating the bicentennial of the Lewis. and ,Clark Expedition.
One trip was to Montana and the other to the Dakotas. There she
learned much about the myth and mystery of this young Indian wife
of Charbonneau, the interpreter, who accompanied the Lewis and
Clark company of 43 men on the largely uncharted leg of their trip
up the Missouri River to the Pacific Ocean. Born in Sacramento,
Cal., and educated at the University of Colorado, Ms. Bode has been
a DAR member since 1995. For those whose interest in Sacagawea
was piqued by her presentation, Ms. Bode recommended the book,
"Sign Talker" by James A. Thom. (UDC photo)

horticulture at the Sanctuary,
and Robert P. Sullivan, Sanctu-
ary president.
The society will be treated to
an overview of hurricane effects
and efforts to restore the historic
gardens; a walking tour led by
Price; the tree planting at 11
a.m., a tour of the Pinewood Es-
tate grounds, lunch and ques-
tions.
"The gift tree presentation is
considered a great honor in the
gardens and arboreta of Europe,"
said John Palmer, IDS South
Florida tour coordinator and IDS
Council meinber and forestry in-
structor, who will lead the tour.
Because the Sanctuary was in
the thoughts of the Society after
the hurricanes, the organization
also will make a hurricane relief
donation.
"The delegation wants to see
the damage first hand and learn
about hurricanes, and it wants
to help with replanting and re-
covery efforts," Palmer said. "It
will be a great honor for the In-

EPA Proposes Approval of Alternative Use
of Phosphogypsum Petition


The U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) is requesting comment
on the approval of a proposed alterna-
tive use of phosphogypsum by the
Florida Institute of Phosphate Re-
search (FIPR).

FIPR has petitioned EPA to test the use
of approximately 25 tons of
phosphogypsum as a daily cover at the
Brevard County Solid Waste Landfill.
The test will evaluate the ability of
phosphogypsum to speed up the break
down of organic in solid waste, creat-
ing additional space in the landfill.

Q: My son does pretty well in
school. Schoolwork comes easily
to him and I don't have to nag
him to do his homework. But
he's just not good at taking tests.
What can I do to help him do
better on tests?
A: Capable students who don't
test well are pretty common -
and always present a challenge.
Problems can range from a
fear of tests, fear of failure, lack
of understanding that tests are
important, or just a simple lack
of test-taking skills.
The first step is to talk with
your son to see if you can iden-
tify the problem. Keep the dis-
cussion calm, don't be judg-
mental, and listen carefully. If
you want him to talk to you, you
have to show that you'll listen to
him first.
If he has had some bad expe-
riences with tests and dreads
taking them, assure him that
you don't judge him just on the
basis of test scores and that good
test scores aren't everything. At-
tendance, attitude, homework,
and daily grades are equally im-
portant to learning as test re-

sults and he seems to be
learning just fine. Be sure he
knows that you love him no mat-
ter what.
Fear of failure can be harder
to detect. Students who have
never had to try very hard to
make good grades have probably
not learned to work hard when
they need to. When they sud-
denly start failing in spite of
their best efforts, many don't
know what to do.
In a panic, some just quit try-
ing preferring to fail because
they didn't try, instead trying
and still failing.
If you think this is possible,
focus on building good study-
habits. And praise your son for
his effort, never just his success.
Say things like, "I'm proud, of
vou for studving so hard for that


;," instead of, "You got a B+!
at!"
f you find that your son


doesn't care about doing well oi
tests because he can't see thei
value, help him understand
what tests are for and what the
mean to him. Teachers give test
to see if students are keeping u
in class, or need extra help
Standardized tests show how
student compares with other
statewide or nationally. Point
out that some "high stakes" test
can determine whether or not a
student will graduate from high
school, whether he will be con
sidered for entrance to college, o
even whether he will get the job
of his dreams.
Many students do poorly on
tests because they have never
developed good test-taking skills.
Some simple, but effective ones
your son can use include care-
fully listening to and following
the test directions, skimming the
test quickly to know what to ex-
pect and how to budget his time,
skipping tough questions and
coming back to them later as
time allows, and checking his
work and looking for "clue
words" that telegraph the an-
swers.
And make sure he gets a good
night's sleep and eats a good
breakfast before the test.
Talk with your son first, and
then consider having a confer-
ence with his teachers and coun-
selor. The quicker you identify
the problems, the quicker you
can solve them.

Dear Betty,
My holiday tablecloth is a disaster -
stained with gravy, wine and candle
wax. How do I get rid of these stains?
Grand Marais, Minn.
t's amazing the havoc one meal
can wreak on a tablecloth! Here's
how to tackle these tricky, but
typical, stains:
Red wine: Soak the stain in cool
water, then pretreat with a prewash
stain remover, liquid laundry deter-
gent or dab with a paste made from
your powdered laundry detergent and
water. Then launder with bleach
that's safe for the tablecloth fabric.
Gravy: Scrape off any remaining
gravy, then pretreat with a spray stain
remover, liquid laundry detergent or
a detergent booster. Wash in the hot-
test water safe for the tablecloth.
Candle wax: Use an ice cube to
harden the wax, then remove the
wax with a dull knife. Place the stain
between clean paper towels and press
with a warm iron. Replace the paper
towels and press again, until as much
wax as possible has been absorbed.
Then treat with a prewash stain
remover and launder.

At Bartow Lions Meeting


Patsy Cline Show Planned At Friday Fest


"Sweet Dreams A Tribute
to Patsy Cline" is coming to Bar-
tow at the next Friday Fest 'Tow
Jam on Jan. 21, 5:30 8:30 p.m.
on South Central Avenue in Bar-
tow.
During the show, C.J.
Harding will pay tribute to the
legendary Patsy Cline.
Ms. Harding will be singing
many of Ms. Cline's hit songs
that have been loved throughout
the years, such' as "Crazy," "I
Fall To Pieces," "Walkin' After
Midnight," "Sweet Dreams" and
more.
Growing up in Savannah, Ms.
Haring fell in love with the mu-
sic of Patsy, Hank Williams, El-
vis and the folk songs of Joan
Baez.
"Patsy Cline is all my mother
played," she said. "I learned to
sing from listening to Patsy.
When I was 14, I bought a guitar
and taught myself how to play


from a songbook."
In the 1990s, Ms. Harding
moved to Tampa and continued
to pursue a singing career. After
playing local venues, she formed
an all female band and eventu-
ally began playing on cruise
ships.
Working with the band, Ms.
Harding found the Patsy Cline
hits were among the most re-
quested, so she created a tribute
show for Patsy.
With her gregarious and
funny personality, Ms. Harding
will attempt to steal your heart
just the way Patsy did and con-
tinues to do through her record-
ings.
The show's costuming is de-
signed and created by Ms.
Harding in an effort 'to keep the
presentation as authentic as pos-
sible.
Ms. Harding has performed
her show with the grand Ole


Opry and opened for such greats
as Ray Stevens and John-Mi-
chael Montgomery.
Additionally, Patsy's home-
town df Winchester, Va., has
sponsored a performance for the
past several New Year's Eve pro-
grams.
The event is free, and beer,
wine and other beverages will be
for sale.
The event also will feature
children's activities, food from lo-
cal restaurants and shopping op-
portunities in downtown stores.
Friday Fest is held on the
third Friday of every month and
is hosted by Main Street Bartow,
Inc. and the City of Bartow. This
month, Citrus & Chemical Bank
also is sponsoring events.
For more information on the
Friday Fest, call Main Street

Lions District 'Governor
Norma Jean Andrews told Bar-
tow Lions Club members at their
Tuesday luncheon meeting of the
extensive disaster relief work
undertaken within Lions District
35-I following the three consecu-
tive hurricanes which struck
central Florida last year.
After the hurricanes struck,
the focus of service in the district
was abruptly changed from con-
cerns for the sight and hearing
disadvantaged, to providing food,
water, clothing, .and, shelter to
hurricane victims, Ms. Andrews
said.
More than $50,000 was re-
ceived from Lions clubs through-
but the nation for district disas-
er relief,' and another $70,000
was made available through Li-
ons International.
One of the biggest rebuilding
projects took place at the Lake
Wales. camp for the blind, where
,all on-campus buildings, with
the exception of the chapel, were
damaged, Ms. Andrews said. The


camp should be "up .and run-
ning" again in May, she said.
One side effect of the hurri-
canes was an interruption of
fundraising events which the
district would otherwise have'
launched for visual, hearing, and
diabetes treatment for the un-
derprivileged.
The district has scheduled a
health fair for Sunday, Jan. 23,
in Immokalee, where more than
700 itinerate workers are ex-
pected to report for sight, hear-
ing, and diabetes screenings.
"We don't want our disaster
relief money to sit in the bank -
"we want it to serve," Ms. An-
drews told the members., "Seek
out opportunities for service
within your community."
The speaker was introduced
by former District Governor W.
L. Lawson.
President Eric Hunt reminded
members of the zone meeting to
be held at the Bartow Civic Cen-
ter on Thursday, Jan. 20.

Tick-Tick-Tick-Tick


Loses Its Luster


Edward R. Morrow would never have
done it.
Walter Cronkite would never have done
it.
Chet Huntley and David Brinkley
would never have done it.
Chances are not even Tom Brokaw
would have done it.
Dan Rather did it, got by with it, and
seemingly doesn't see much wrong with it.
"It," of course, is the slanderous attack
on President George W. Bush's military
career as a pilot in the Air National Guard
by CBS's "60 Minutes," based on apparent-
ly forged documents that a Boy Scout earn-
ing a law enforcement merit badge should
have questioned.
Rather, stone-faced star of "60 Minutes,"
apparently fell hook, line and sinker for
bogus documents. He apparently didn't
consider it necessary to verify the authen-
ticity of the documents, or to question the
political motivation of the person who pro-
vided them.
Journalists listen to anybody with a tip,
even people with an ax to grind. Happy
people seldom are whistle-blowers.
Journalists gather documentation that
supports the accusations of their tipsters.
But those among us who call ourselves
professional journalists extensively check
into the authenticity of both the informa-
tion and the documentation.
Dan Rather, whose annual salary is
many times the total the annual payroll of
the four newspapers which this company
publishes, came across as a rank amateur.
And by all appearances, he doesn't real-
ize it. His employer, CBS News, didn't find
it appropriate to fire him.
Two professionals named by CBS -for-
mer Atty. Gen. Dick Thomburgh and for-
mer Associated Press CEO Louis Boccardi
- said that CBS "failed miserably" to ver-
ify the authenticity of the information and
the documentation.
In a 224-page report, it cites a "myopic
zeal" by CBS to break. the story without
determining if it were true.
After staunchly defending the story for
several days, Rather announced he would
step down as CBS Evening News anchor
but would remain a correspondent for "60
Minutes." He said his decision wasn't
based on his gaffe, a statement that makes
anything else he says a little hard to swal-
low.
Surprisingly, the report failed to find
any evidence of political bias in the broad-
cast, despite the fact that one of the prima-
ry sources for the bogus information has


"an anti-Bush political agenda."
The pre-broadcast phone calls between a
CBS producer and a Kerry campaign orga-
nizer also make it difficult to believe that
there were no political overtones to a story
which questioned the credibility and mili-
tary service of the President of the United
States a short time before the election.
There is no show of political bias here?
While Rather was granted absolution by
his network, four network executives,
including the producer who had the most
direct responsibility for the story, were
fired.
In a poor choice of words, CBS President
Leslie Moonves said: "Ninety-nine percent
of the stories we do are accurate and
solid."
Ninety-nine percent is passing? Does
that mean that one story out of 100 is as
totally off the mark as Rather's unfounded.
"expose" of Bush's military service?
We certainly hope and believe that
this newspaper has a better record of accu-
racy than having one vof every 100 of its
stories totally wrong. We're not talking
about a misspelled word, but a total lack of
accuracy.
How comfortable would you be driving
down the highway in the knowledge that
one in every 100 traffic lights was display-
ing green in all directions, rather than
showing red on two sides?
'Errors happen in this and every busi-
ness, despite all our efforts to avoid them.
Rather's error went beyond a simple
mistake; it was shoddy journalism, and
will affect his credibility for the rest of his
career.
"Oh yeah, Rather says thus and so; he's
the guy who said Bush was a. shirker,
remember?"
"60 Minutes" is known for the tick-tick-
tick-tick of its on-screen stopwatch.
The new sound should be "tick-tick-tick-
tick-thud."

THINKING OUT LOUD / By S. L. FRISBIE, IV

An Opening for Funniest Man


Several years ago, while taking
one of.our daughters to college, I
browsed through the university
bookstore, as I am wont to do.
I enjoy college campuses, and
aside from the distinctive archi-
tecture usually found on them,
one of my favorite hang-outs is
the bookstore.
Back when I was a freshman, I
remember the motto of the FSU
Bookstore was "Freshmen Will
Buy Anything." They didn't
think we knew that. Freshmen
are smarter than you think.
Occasionally.
The first corollary of the
Freshman Rule is that "Parents of
Freshmen Will Buy Anything,
Too."
The second' corollary is:
"Parents of Alumni Will Buy
Anything."
Actually, it makes sense.
First, you're so glad they got
accepted, you want to identify
with them; second, you're so real-
ly glad they graduated, you want
to identify with them that much
more.
Anyway, there was this book
in the bookstore, which didn't
even have 'the university mascot
on it, the title of which was "Dave
Barry Is the Funniest Man in


America." It was written by Dave
Barry, in case you couldn't figure
that part out for yourself.
"Well, I guess I better see what
the competition is up to," I said to
my friend Mary, who was gather-
ing her own collection of
Freshman Parent's stuff.
I had never heard of Dave
Barry, and always figured that
Lewis Grizzard was the funniest
man in America. Turns out that
Dave Barry was pretty good, too,
though it would have been
thoughtful of him to wait until
Lewis went to his greater reward
to claim sole possession of first
place.
The book was pretty good -
okay, it was a great book and I
became at least an occasional
Dave Barry reader in The Tampa
Tribune on Sunday. I particularly
enjoyed his year-end column,
which ran slightly shorter than
the United States Constitution,
with amendments. In other
words, you needed the holiday to
get through it.
In the first Sunday of this new
year, Dave Barry announced that
he was hanging it up. It ... his
laptop, I'm sure. Dave Barry is
too young to remember green
eyeshades.


The stress of writing one
whole column a week finally got
the best of him he appears to
be at least 40 so he was giving
it up.
Time to get a real job? Don't
count on it. He didn't mention
anything about learning a trade,
or selling robotic vacuum clean-
ers from door to door.
My initial reaction was that
with the Late, Great Lewis
Grizzard strumming a harp and
Dave Barry strumming a GIT-tar
down on South Beach, there was
a little room opening up at the
top.
And then I met Harlen Brown,
who applied for a job as a
reporter at The Lake Wales News.
Harlen, who tried to retire and
discovered it didn't take, was a
reporter in Polk County before he
moved to south Florida, where he
delivered newspapers and used
that job to sneak in the back door
of the newsroom and start writ-
ing again.
On his resume, he mentioned
that he was voted "Second Best
Columnist in Florida" by readers
of Florida Monthly Magazine,
coming in behind a tie for first by
Dave Barry and Carl Hiassen,
both of the Miami Herald.


I commented that he was
good company, and Hark
opined that most of the vote
were down in an area where h
column was circulated pretty
heavily.
So just as the crowd starts wir
nowing out, I have to hire a con
petitor.
Dave Barry was pretty goo
to be sure; will be again, if he dis
covers that being retired is to
much work.
What he apparently didn'
understand is that being a column
nist is not a job. Being a columnist'
is what you do when you have a
real job, or at least a newspaper
job, and want something else tu
do on the side.
Over the years, I have discov-
ered this simple rule for writing a
column:
If I write one in 15 minutes, it's
probably pretty good.
If it takes 30 minutes, it may be
okay, but nothing more.
.... If it takes 45 minutes or longer,
it ought to be preceded by a dis-
claimer telling you it's not worth
reading.
How long did this one take?
Don't ask, don't tell.

Boot Sale Featured At Next

Downtown Antique Fair


Have some treasures you'd
like to sell, yet not enough to
bother with a yard sale? Or per-
haps you'd like to have a sale,
but don't want people traipsing
through your landscaped yard?
Main Street Bartow, Inc., has
the perfect solution for amateur
retailers a car boot sale.
As the name may suggest,
these sales originated in the
United Kingdom, where a car'
trunk is called a boot.
Sellers may load up their car
trunk, SUV or truck with items
to sell and drive to an allotted
space during the monthly Down-
town Antique Fair to begin sell-
ing.
Sellers are required to pay a
$10 fee for their space during the
fair.
The sales are being held to co-
incide with the Downtown An-
tiques Fairs, so sellers will be
seen by as many buyers as possi-
ble.
A downtown city street will be
set aside for the car "booters,"
and designated as Bootsale
Boulevard for the day.
Sellers may sell directly from
their trunks or small tables, on
the sidewalk.
"The growth in popularity of


this type of sale in the UK has
been incredible," Main Street
Board Member George Robert-
son-Burnett said. "When car
booters open their trunks, you
just don't know what might be
available for sale, and that's part
of the fun.
"The main source of things to
sell is of course the general sur-
plus bric-a-brac, which lives un-
der the stairs or in the garage,"
he said, "but anything from
homemade cakes to unwanted
Christmas gifts may be included.
The more variety the better."
The inaugural sale will be
held during the. antique fair on
Saturday, Feb. 12, scheduled
from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sellers will not need to regis-
ter, but should arrive early to
get good spots and the most buy-
ers. Vehicles are required to be
in place and have paid their ad-
mission fee of $10 by 10:30 a.m.
to be included.
Groups, school organizations
and community organizations
are welcome to band together to
fill a boot.
For more information on the
sale, call Main Street Bartow,
Inc., at 534-4030.

Florida motorists may be eli-
gible for refunds of as much as
$20,000 under' a nationwide
agreement to benefit individuals
who unknowingly purchased
damaged or stolen cars from
State Farm Mutual Insurance
Company.
The agreement is part of a
$40 million settlement, reached
by Attorney General Charlie
Crist's office and the Attorneys
General of 48 other states and
the District of Columbia.
Florida was one of the lead
states in reaching the agree-
ment, \which is designed to com-
pensate thousands of owners of
cars, SUVs and trucks across the
country. Affected motorists
bought vehicles from State Farm
after the company took title to
them from policyholders due to
damage or unrecovered theft.
The titles to the affected vehicles
did not properly indicate that
,they previously had been dam-
aged or stolen, Crist said.,
After research into vehicle ti-
tles is complete, an estimated
30,000 to 40,000 consumers na-
tionwide may be eligible for pay,
ments ranging from about $400
to as much as $20,000. Most pay-
.ments are expected to range
from $800 to $1,850, depending
primarily on the current average
value of the vehicle and the
number of consumers who par-
ticipate in the compensation pro-
gram.
"Consumers have a right to
know whether a vehicle they
purchase has been damaged or
otherwise written off by an in-
surance company," said Crist.
"State Farm is to be com-
mended for stepping forward to
disclose the problem and present
a workable solution. At the same


time, Florida consumers who
made decisions based on false in-
formation deserve to be compen-
sated, and this settlement will
help make things right."
Florida and 48 other states re-
quire that vehicles be titled as "
salvage" or the equivalent when
they meet certain standards re-
lating to degree of damage or un-
recovered theft. State Farm con-
tacted states in late 2003 indi-
cating that it had documentation
of proper titles for approximately
2.4 million vehicles that suffered
total losses in recent years, but
that for a small percentage of
other vehicles it had insufficient
or 'no documentation to verify
that a proper title had been ob-
tained.
Crist said the settlement is "
groundbreaking" in the way a
company contacted state Attor-
neys General and sought to
reach an agreement that in-
volves both changing certain, of
its practices and seeking the
states' help in returning money
to consumers.
In addition to providing the
$40 million for consumer com-
pensation, State Farm also will
pay the cost of the major project
of identifying the vehicles, iden-
tifying and contacting current
owners, taking claims and mak-
ing compensation payments.
Consumers who complete a
claim form and are approved will
receive a compensation payment
from State Farm later this year
or early in 2006.
Under the agreement, State
Farm will work with state motor
vehicle agencies to determine
the specific vehicles that require
a branded title. Florida owners
of affected vehicles will receive a
letter from Crist?s office with a


claim form to complete and re-
turn to an independent company
that will administer the claims
process. Once all claims are in,
the amount each consumer will
receive will. be finalized and
checks mailed.
The final amounts received by
each consumer will depend on
the current value of the vehicle
and how many consumers elect
to participate in the payment
program. Payments will be made
to the owners of currently regis-
tered vehicles and will be based
on the current average retail
value of the vehicle.
Crist said it is expected that
current owners of eligible vehi-
cles will be contacted by this fall,
after the identification process is
completed.

Voluntary Compliance between

indoor Radon Can Pose

Serious Health Threat


A deadly gas could be lurking
your home, and this is the
onth to check and make sure
don is not threatening your
'alth.
Florida Department of Health
id the U.S. Environmental Pro-
'-.ction Agency, are recognizing
january as Radon Awareness
onth.
The observance aims to edu-
ate Floridians about the dan-
ers of exposure to elevated in-
oor radon.
"Exposure to high levels of ra-
on has been shown to cause
several health complications, in-
,luding lung cancer," DOH Sec-
retary Dr. John 0. Agwunobi,
3aid.
Radon is a naturally occur-
ring, invisible, odorless, radioac-
tive gas emitted from soils.
!While outdoor levels produce lit-
tle risk, higher concentrations
'found indoors can create a poten-
tial health hazard.
According to the National
Academy of Sciences, radon is
the second leading cause of lung
cancer, causing approximately


21,000 deaths nationwide each
year. In Florida, 750 residents
died from long-term radon expo-
sure last year.
To prevent dangerous radon
exposure, the DOH and EPA
suggest:
All homeowners test for ra-
don. Test kits are available at
several retail outlets and
through DOH-certified radon
businesses.
DOH-certified radon con-
tractors can also be hired to test
homes.
Address any radon-related
problems immediately this
can be done for a relatively low
cost.
New homes should include
radon-resistant features which
can be installed by the builder-
these features are especially im-
portant in areas reporting ele
vated radon levels.
For more information on ra-
don, its health effects and test-
ing procedures call the DOH Ra-
don Hotline at 1-800-543-8279,
or visit www.doh.state.fl.us.

Beware Of Damaging Termites


Spring is on the way, and
with it will come termites, ready
to munch through a home.
Termites have begun swarm-
ing and looking for new nesting
sites.
"This is a good time of year for
consumers to check their con-
tracts with licensed pest control
companies to make sure they are
current," Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson said.
"People who do not have a
current termite protection con-
tract are urged to contact pest
control companies and request
written estimates and copies of
the contracts they offer.
Consumers should not sign a
contract until they have com-
pared at least three companies.
Pest control companies are re-
quired by law to obtain a signed
contract prior to treating a
home.
Consumers with questions
about contracts or the perform-


ance of a pest control company
can call 1-800-HelpFla.
The two types of termites that
mainly affect Florida consumers,
are subterranean termites, who
live in soil and attack structures
from the ground up, and dry-
wood termites, who live in iso-
lated pieces of wood in a struc-
ture.
Other steps consumers may
take to protect their homes are:
Remove wood piles and
other cellulose sources from un-
der and next to a home.
Have an annual inspection
of the home by a licensed profes-
sional pest control company.
Renew termite protection
contract annually.
Direct water sources, such
as air conditioner drip lines and
roof down spouts, away from
foundations.
When purchasing a home,
check the termite protection his-
tory. of the home.


To help emergency crews find
your house quickly, use at least 3"
house numbers in a color that con-
trasts with your home.
If you have a street-side mailbox,
consider putting the number on each
side.
Emergency crews, your mail car-
rier and other delivery people will
appreciate your help.

Injured Mocs Enter Into


Worst Skid in 15 Years


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

Florida Southern men's bas-
ketball Head Coach Tony Longa
is in the midst of something he
has never faced in his career
with the Mocs a four game
losing streak. That's something
an FSC coach hasn't had to face
since 1990.
The latest game of the skid
came as a 67-59 loss to confer-
ence rival Rollins College on
Wednesday evening at Jenkins
Field House.
"Our guys really played hard,
we really competed," Longa said.
"They did everything we asked of
them, we just weren't physically
or mentally tough over a 40 min-
utes span."
The Mocs (10-4,; 1-3) faced a
daunting 15 point deficit in the
,first half, but were able to close
out the half with an 14-6 run.
Florida Southern crammed
seven unanswered points into
the final 30 seconds, capped off
with Braxton Williams' three
point shot as time expired to cut
the lead to five.
In the, second half the Mocs
would get within one twice, but
both times the Tars (10-3, 2-1)
came right back. Senior forward
Kenny Ebanyat scored eight un-
answered points with five min-
utes to play, but Rollins' guard
John Thines hit a three-pointer
to end the run.
Ebanyat ended the game with
17 points and a .career high 17


rebounds, the majority of which
came in the second half. Despite
the double-double, Longa said
his senior's play was far from
perfect.
"He had 17 rebounds, but he's
got to play better. He can't turn
the ball over and miss shots in
the paint," Longa said.
Senior Reggie Richardson set
a career high for three pointers
on a 4-7 shooting performance
from behind the arc. He was sec-
ond on the team in scoring be-
hind Ebanyat with 14 points, but
it was his hustle that impressed
his coach the most.
"(Richardson) just gives you
everything he's got. If every guy
played with that type of energy
and passion and intensity, we're
gonna win some more games,"
Longa said. "Right now we're
struggling."
Florida Southern was plagued
by spotty free throw shooting for
the second game in a row. The
Mocs also shot 35 percent (17-48)
from the floor.
Rollins College leading scorer,
senior Eric Faber, torched the
Mocs for 24 points, four steals
and four assists. Faber was
.deadly from behind the arc (3-4)
as well as the line (11-14).
Meanwhile, the only Moc to
shoot better than 50 percent was
freshman Arnaldo Abreu, who
made the only shot he took, a
lay-up in the second half.
"We played really well in
spurts. We're just really strug-


gling to put 40 minutes to-
gether," said Longa.
Longa said the injuries to
Hurley Dunbar (ACL, out for
season) and Dominic Girod
(knee, possible return on Satur-
day) gets magnified in a game
against a tough conference oppo-
nent. Girod went down five
games ago in a win against
Shepherd College. Since then the
Mocs have dropped four in a row,
including three at home.
While Longa said his team
can win, without those two, the
Mocs are at a huge disadvantage
without their speedy wingmen.
"If Girod is able to came back
and play, it just gives you an-
other piece to a puzzle. We're
just struggling right now to find
a playmaker, finding a guy who
can make his own shot," Longa
said.
The loss drops Florida South-
ern into the cellar of the Sun-
shine State Conference, where
they face the possibility of hav-
ing the first five-game losing
streak at FSC in 25 years.
The Mocs will tackle another
huge hurdle on Saturday when
they have to travel to Miami and
face 17th ranked Barry. Longa
said the coaching staff will have
a solid game plan ready to go be-
fore then.
"All we can do is get ready for
Barry," he said. "We've got to put
40 minutes of basketball to-
gether."


FasTruck officials announced
some changes for the series pro-
cedures and some rules clarifica-
tions and changes.
"We feel these changes are
needed to improve FASTRUCK
racing and to clear some gray ar-
eas in the rules," said Technical

Director Carl Green.
The series first announcement
was that Ocala had backed out of
its scheduled dates for FAS-
TRUCK.
"We hated to hear this one,
we were, really looking forward
to racing at Ocala, but they have
ided to do something differ-
ent. We told them that we were
here they just needed to call if
they change their minds," stated
Series Director Billy Barstow.
"We will try to get an updated
schedule out in the next week or
so but we are working on some,


other possible deals."
Top 5 qualifiers will now re-
ceive points as follows: first gets
five, second gets four, third gets
three, fourth gets two and fifth
gets one point.
All. races will be 50 laps ex-
cept the out-of-state races which
will be announced as they draw
nearer. Entry fee will be $100
per race and entrants will still
need to purchase a minimum of
five gallons of series fuel.
Changes to the points' fund in-
clude: Champions will receive a
minimum guaranteed $2,500,
second place will pay a minimum
of $1,800 and third a minimum
of $1,200. The remainder of the
points payoff will be based on
amount of races, trucks and
other points fund-raisers. Series
members running 75 percent of
schedule will receive points fund

Since Jan 9, adventurer David
Jessop has been hiking the en-
tire length of the Florida Na-
tional Scenic Trail.
Spanning almost the entire
state of Florida, the trail extends
from Big Cypress National Pre-
serve in the south to Gulf Is-
lands National Seashore.
The 1,400-mile Florida Trail,,
proclaimed a "hidden beauty" by
the Miami Herald, has been
hiked in its entirety by less than
50 people since its creation in
1966.
It remains one of the wildest
and ecologically spectacular
long-distance hiking trails in
America. '
Jessop first decided to tackle
the Florida Trail as a senior at
Oberlin College, a liberal arts in-
stitution in Ohio.
"From swamps to seashores,
alligators to bears, there is a
unique ecological diversity found
in Florida that simply does not
exist in any of the other 49
states," Jessop said. "The trail
will provide me with a fascinat-
ing and challenging adventure
while teaching me about the


bag filled with Indians and Ti-
gers collectibles and memora-
bilia. Also included in the cost of
registration is lunch and dinner
at The Club at Eaglebrooke.
Golfers will be accommodated
on a first come, first served ba-
sis.
Prizes will be awarded to each
member of the first and second
place low gross and low net
teams as well as the individual
golfers who record the longest
drives and the tee shots landing
closest to the pin. There will also
be several on course contests
that players will be able to par-
ticipate in.
The tournament begins with a
shotgun start at 1 p.m. and will
be followed by a reception and
awards presentation.
To make reservations for the
10th Annual Major League
Scramble, call Polk County

Jessop, a New York native
and accomplished trekker and
traveler, has hiked in such re-
mote spots as the Bolivian Andes
and Argentinean Patagonia.
During the trip, which Jessop
hopes to complete in less than
three months, he will be camp-
ing as well as spending the night
in peoples' homes along the way.
These welcoming Floridians,
or "trail angels" in hiker-talk,
volunteer to provide Florida
Trail hikers with a hot meal and
a warm bed for the night.
Many are members of the
Florida Trail Association, the
non-profit volunteer organiza-
tion responsible for building and
maintaining the 1,400-mile Flor-
ida Trail.
Jessop is keeping an online
account of his trip at www.trail-

The journal will be updated
frequently with pictures and
writings from the trail.

Could You Give

Everything Away?.
Jesus told his potential followers that whoever of you does not
renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple (Luke 14:33). And
Jesus advised the ruler who asked him what he must do to inherit
eternal life that' he should sell everything he had, distribute' the
money to the poor, and come follow Him (Luke 18:22). Just as.this
was very hard for the rich ruler to hear, so it is hard for us to imag-
ifie giving everything we have to the poor and following in Jesus
footsteps. Despite the fact that there are millions of Christians, very
few have been able to do this. Those few who have chosen to fol-
low the monastic life may take vows of poverty, but even so, 'Ihey
often have access to all the modern comforts of hearth and home.
For most of us, we simply enjoy our possessions too much to imag-
ine giving them all away. And, we can justify our non-adherence to
'this particular precept by saying as long as we are not too attached
to our possessions, we are abiding by the spirit of the gospels.' Or,
as long as we tithe and give to thepoor and needy, we are trying to
be good Christians. These may be convenient rationalizations, and
it may even be true that we can do more good by continuing to work
and amass wealth which we can then give to charity; however, we
have to be honest enough to admit that most of us do not live up to
this gospel precept. !
Sell your possessions, and give alms...For .
where your treasure, there will your heart be
also. R.S.V. Luke 12:33-34

y REV. JAMES L. SNYDER

Memory is a very tricky thing,
at least for me it is.
Looking back over a year's
span of activity, my memory
seems to pick and choose what it
remembers. It amazes me not so
much what a person remembers,
but what a person forgets.
Often some old-timer will
Anoban.about how much he misses
the. "good old days." I'm not sure
if he is thinking of World War II
or the Great Depression.
I'm positive that during the
EGreat Depression some wonder-
ful memories were created, but
I'm not sure anyone wants to re-
iturn to those thrilling days of
yesterday. .
' : The bad was not as bad as we
remember, and the good was not
cas good as we boast.

Ehas always been remembering
whibh is which. (Personally, I
don't know 'the, difference be-
tween "which" and "that."?')
Several things about the old
year bear serious consideration.
The past year, in my opinion,
was not just one year, but sev-
eral years flowing together.
Sometimes, I'm not sure which
year I lived.
The year 2004, like all its
brothers before it, 'actually con-
sisted of three years.
First, there is the year that
really was. "Just the facts,

Words on paper. They will always be the most powerful tools human beings use to

,checkbook entries .(at least the
ones I remembered to enter), the
past year was a completely dif-
ferent one than I recall.
I really do not recollect having
all the fun indicated by my bank
statement. Why is it that no
matter how much money I put
into my bank account, more
money comes out?
Evidently, some phantom
creature has access to my check-
book.
President Ronald Reagan was
accused of voodoo economics. Re-
viewing my bank statements, I
could be accused of "Who-do" eco-
nomics.
My income tax statement is
another perplexity. I can never
figure it out. If the government
said I made that much money, I
must have made that much
money and owe that much in
taxes.
Speaking of 'the government,
what I don't understand is how
they know how much I owe, to
the penny, along with millions of
other Americans, and can not
find Osama bin Laden.
I know exactly how to solve
this conundrum.
,One surefire way of finding
him is leaking to the government
that Osama bin Laden owes
taxes, and he will be caught be-
fore April 15, guaranteed.
Second, there is the year I re-
member.
This year is much shorter
than the previous one, for some
odd reason. The year I remember
had only two months this
month and last month.
And believe me, "last month"
is a stretch for me.
Honestly, I remember paying
the electric bill, contrary to what
the electric company says. My
problem with the electric com-
pany is that during the space of
a year, they send me 12 bills and
I can only remember two.
They penalize me for screwing
up, but they do not credit my ac-
count when they screw up like
being without electricity for four
days twice this past year.
Oh, that I remember and re-
member it well. In fact, if my
memory serves me correctly, it
was more like 90 days.
" I remember deducting the
monthly service charges from my
bank each and every month.
Well, maybe not "each and
every" month. Why those three
checks bounced is beyond my
comprehension.


Should the bank charge a
larger fee for a bounced check
than the face value of the check?
I don't think so.
Isn't it the bank's business to
keep their records straight? Why
do I have to spend so much time
each month on my checkbook ac-
count?
Last, but certainly not least,
is the year the Gracious Mistress
of the Parsonage remembers.
At times, I am tempted to
think (at least it's what I call
thinking) my Wife lives one life
and I live something altogether
different from hers. The things
she remembers that took place
during the year are beyond my
remembering.
I am beginning to believe she
remembers things that never
took place. Of course, and I say
this with all sincerity, I would
never contradict her memory.
For the life of me, I don't
know where I was when all these
things happened that she says
happened. Nor do I know where
I was when I promised to do all
those things she said I promised.
Even in my right mind (of
which I don't have much left), I
would never concede to help re-
model the family room. I would
never accuse her, heaven forbid,
of taking advantage of me in this
area. The thought is not a
stranger inside my head, al-
though rational thoughts are.
King Solomon, the wisest man
who ever lived, framed his
thoughts this way, "Remember
now thy Creator in the days of
thy youth, while the evil days
come not, nor the years draw.
nigh, when thou shalt say, I
have no pleasure in them." (Ec-
clesiastes 12:1 KJV)
c Solomon's idea was "now" is
more important than "then."
The Apostle Paul had the
right idea with this matter of re-
membering. "Brethren, I count
hot myself to have apprehended:
but this one thing I do, forget-
ting those things which are be-
hind, and reaching forth unto
those things which are before, I
press toward the mark for the
prize of the high calling of God
in Christ Jesus." (Philippians
3:12-14 KJV)
It is not important how much
I can remember about the past,
as long as I don't forget to set
Christ before me in all I do in
2005.

will host Bill and Gloria Gaither,
well-known Christian songwrit-

Vocalist Janet Paschal and
Christian recording artists, The
Pfeifers, will be featured in con-
cert at Union Congregational
Church in Avon Park Saturday,
Jan. 15.
The concert beings at 7:30
p.m.
Ms. Paschal has received sev-
eral Dove Award nominations
during her Christian musical ca-
reer. She has enjoyed national
and international success, and
currently serves as the official
spokesman for the international
relief organization, Mission of
Mercy, a spokesman said.
With a list of such songs as "I
Am Not Ashamed Of The Gos-
pel," 'Washed In The Blood Of
The Lamb," and "Another Sol-
dier's Coming Home" to her
credit, Ms. Paschal performs in
excess of 50 solo concerts each
year, and for more than a decade
has been regularly featured on
the Bill Gaither Homecoming
Tour.


Her recently released record-
ing, entitled "Home Again," has
garnered Ms. Paschal even more
success, as the project features
six songs written by the prolific
writer.
Like Ms. Paschal, The Pfeifers
have enjoyed tremendous suc-
cess in recent years.
They have enjoyed several ra-
dio hits, such as "I Will Trust
Him," "Jumpin' In," "Father's
House," and their current Top 40
release, "If I'm Wrong," which is
the second release from the
group's current "Tune My Heart"
recording.
The group's ability to combine
brass instrumentation with rich
vocal harmony, complemented
by a complete lighting and video
presentation, has made them a
mainstay and recognizable fix-
ture among various Christian
music genres, the spokesman
said.
For further information about
the concert, call 941-756-6942.


For the program, Anita
Bigsby sang "Broken and Spilled
Out." Crystal Meacham gave a
drama presentation, "Her Ala-
baster Box."
Mrs. Driskell presented a mo-
tivating talk, "Get Real With
God, Be More Alive In 2005."
She spoke of intimacy and be-
ing "best friends with God,"
which, she said, involves time,
commitment, and sharing heart
secrets and heartbreak with
Him, while letting go of pride,
selfishness, self pity, and low
self-esteem.
T"orgiveness is a God thing,
not a flesh thing, and we must
be honest with ourselves and
with God," she said. "He uses our
ruin, our mistakes, to change
us."
Mrs. Driskell distributed
small broken pieces of glass rep-
resenting the broken pieces of
one's life. In closing, all were en-
couraged to place the pieces in a
basket at the foot of a cross,
which was symbolic of bringing
all hurts to "the One who can fix
everything."
