Community mourns loss of Purcell


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer.

Lane Purcell's family had
"gathered at their Bushnell
home last week on New Year's
:Eve.
: It was about 1 a.m. and they
were preparing for a New
Year's cookout when Purcell
took a family member for a
,ride in his newly redone Jeep,
according to Sumter sheriff's
Lt Bobby Caruthers.
: Purcell.was traveling behind
another vehicle, as they all
made their way across his
, property They were seconds
:away from Purcell's private
-airstrip when witnesses
noticed the lights on the Jeep
flapping and realized the vehi-
cle was overturning. Purcell
was killed, thrown from the
:Jeep when it flipped over.
His passenger survived but


has a broken arm.
The vehicle had been
* redone and a lift kit had been
added, lifting the body higher
off the ground than the stan-
dard built Jeeps.
Purcell was well known in
Sumter County. His family
established and owned Purcell
Funeral Home in Bushnell a
business that's been in opera-
tion since 1960.
Every day, Purcell was out in
the community. A typical
morning started with breakfast
at Herb and Pegs on Bushnell
Plaza.' He and others, like,
County Tax Collector' Tom
Swain, settled in at a table and
shared news and laughs.
"He was like a little brother
to me," Swain said, adding that
they'd get together for coffee
or tea, sometimes lunch and
sometimes for a ride on an air-'
boat.


Lane Purcell
"He always was lighthearted
and was; always fun to be
around,"', Swain said. There
was anywhere from 10 to 15
people who might settle in at
the table 'with them at different


times, including Purcell's wife
Cheryl.
Restaurant owner Peg
McGowan said Thursday
morning was the last morning
they all gathered there.
On that day, "I was the brunt,
of their joke," she said. They,
were teasing her about a
cheeseburger.
She and the others had been
invited to the party at Purcell's
home. She said she knew she
was probably going to hear a
lot about cheeseburgers at that
party
"He always brightened the
room when he "came in. We'll
miss him."
"Lane Purcell was a commu-
nity leader and he's, going to be
missed -by Sumter County,"
said Caruthers.,.
"'He helped out the sheriff's
department in any way we
asked," Caruthers said. Before.


the department had an avia-
tion unit, they relied on
Purcell for help.
He was a pilot and owned
his own airplane that he kept
at an airstrip on his property.
Caruthers said Purcell
would fly department mem-
bers on searches, looking for
missing persons or suspects
who fled on foot.
"He's always been a big help
to the sheriff's office and to the
community. He's always been
there when we called for him.
Purcell took the business
over from his father.
He was born in Hollywood
but his family moved to
Brooksville and then. on to
Sumter. County when Purcell
was five years old.
He is survived by his wife
Cheryl, his son Justin Lane,
and his daughter Brooke
Marielle of Bushnell; his sister


Lita Nell Hart of Bushnell and
two uncles Alexander Lane
,Purcell of Branford and
Sharold Morgan of Mayo; one
aunt- Catherine Riggs of Live

Plenty of ways


to help the


victims nf tsunami


V J in1460 9 ,. 4L m uWL

iW e've unwrapped holiday
presents and rung in the
VV New Year.
It's been a pleasant holiday sea-
son for many of us.
Most of us are safe. Most of us
:have shared the holidays with
:'loved ones or friends.
But this holiday sea- --
son also carries with it a
Horrible tragedy. The
S.death toll continues to
:climb following the i.,
,tsunami that struck Asia.
Every day, the news is
-filled with images of
Despair, death : and
,,destruction. Daily news-
:,papers continue to B4
'report on the massive REIC
.destruction.c
' Our thoughts are
haunted with horrible images: a
mother clutching her child's life-
less body, rows of bodies, faces
'that seem to cry endless tears and
endure endless pain.
We're told that the deaths aren't
'the end of the tragedy. We're told
,that more devastation will come.
Thousands of people are left
.homeless. Children are left with-
"out parents. Disease threatens to
attack those who already have lost
.so much.
While we can't make this
tragedy stop, each of us can make
,a difference.
The biggest need right now is
money, money that will pay for
.medical assistance, money that
'can help victims of this horrible
,disaster.
There are plenty of agencies
helping the victims of the tsunami.
Our hope is that you choose one
and that you lend a helping hand.
'The amount you send isn't nearly
:as important as the fact that you
-participate in the effort.


One of the organizations provid-
ing assistance is the American
Red Cross.
The organization is accepting
monetary donations that will go
directly to aid the tsunami victims.
To help this effort, donations
can be sent to: American
-Red Cross International
Response Fund, PO. Box
37243, Washington, D.C.,
20013.
There are a substantial
number of other organi-
zations assisting victims
4, of this tragedy. To find
^b^ e information about those
agencies visit .www.first-
gov.gov for information
OB about how you can help.
HMAN Go to the box named 'In
Focus' containing Asia

If you don't have Internet access,
here's just a few of the organiza-
tions providing support to the vic-
tims of the disaster: Action

Our hope this New Year is that
schools, churches, civic organiza-

this cause and actively pursue
ways of providing financial assis-
tance to the victims of the disaster.

A tribute
to Lane
Lane Purcell's death has left an
empty place in our community that
reverberates beyond his family
and closest friends who most cer-
tainly have our deepest thoughts of
sympathy.
Lane was a dear friend and
those of us who relied on his pro-
fessionalism in the past and were
counting on him in the future are
also devastated. He was so very
specially talented and his good-
ness as a person made him great in
his profession.
We came to him in the darkest
days of our lives and he took us by
the hand and led us through the
many decisions death brings -
making us laugh when we didn't
even feel like we could smile. He
was unflappable and you didn't
have to worry about the arrange-
ments you made for your loved one
because you knew Lane would
make sure everything went as
planned,
If you did have any last minute
changes, they were no problems
because Lane could make it hap-
pen without a second thought.
Lane had a way of making your
loved one seem not cold and life-
less but only sleeping.
My Aunt Frieda was ill the last
years of her life but when she died,
Lane made her look beautiful
again.
Only Lane's unique talents could
have enabled the service for my
infant cousin to be so comforting to
the parents and my family. After
the service, Lane carried the tiny
casket by himself out of the chapel..
It might sound strange but I
liked watching Lane during a serv-
ice because he was like a conduc-
tor.
Nothing, and I mean nothing,
escaped his attention and he
seemed to glide from one place to
the next without lifting his feet as
he performed his duties.
His soft voice would remind us,
"ladies and gentlemen, please pre-
pare yourselves for a volley of fire"
before a 21-gun salute, "please
watch your step as you leave the
cemetery" or his slow deliberate
gestures would indicate where we


should stand or walk. He knew just
how things should be, arranged
and he wanted the service to pro-
ceed flawlessly, which it did.
I attended a viewing once and
was moving to exit the double
doors at the front of the chapel.
Before I knew it, Lane had gently
taken my arm, turned me around
and was leading me up the aisle to
the front door.
He didn't want people using the
double doors and this was his
polite and discreet way of prevent-
ing me from.doing so.
I told him he was smooth and
charming because he made it
seem as if we were dancing!
During another graveside serv-
ice a member of the congregation
was reading a poem while a strong
wind kept blowing her long hair.
Lane quietly moved to stand
behind the lady, gently took her
hair in his hands and held it so she
could finish the reading without
her hair obstructing the paper.
Who but Lane would have been so
thoughtful?
Few people can live with death
every day and conduct death's
business but Lane Purcell found a
way to do so with grace, humor and
compassion.

A county in
mourning
I would like to take a moment to
pay tribute to an icon of his era.
Sumter County has recently lost
one of their most beloved business-
men, leader and friends, Lane
Purcell.
There are very few residents of
Sumter County and beyond who
have not been touched by the kind-
ness sensitivity and .support of
Lane. He has been there for each
and every one of us at sometime or
other. He was loved by all who
knew him.
I wish there were some way to be
there for his family in the same way
Lane was there for us all in our
time of need.
In Deepest Sympathy
You will be missed
Sincerely
Jo Ann.Harris and family
The Cross Family


Another VOICE



SLearning about the tragic loss of Lane Purcell


he news spread like
wildfire this weekend.
SI heard about Lane
-Purcell's death on Saturday
:and by that afternoon, people
*everywhere were talking
About it.
And people ,everywhere
:were shocked and saddened.
. Lane was the kind of guy
that everybody knew. In some
:cases, folks knew him
*because he had business
dealings with them pur-
.chases to make, lunch to
,have.
- But for many, it was
*through his business, Purcell
Fbineral Home. He was the
,guy who made the loss of a
loved one a little easier.
He was the one who han-
:dled the funeral arrange-
:ments and then met you at


the front door to hold your
hand and lead you in or say
the words that needed to be
said, or just stand
there a comfort-
ing presence.
Lane's been
there for my family
more' than once
during the loss of
our loved ones but ,
I'll probably never H
forget that first
time.
That was my dad
and it was back in
the late 1980s. BRE
I had known Loci
Lane for a couple --
of years as' a local
businessman with a good
sense of. humor always
ready with a smile and a joke.
He came to our office weekly


to drop off paperwork and
he'd always kneel down on
one knee or settle in a chair
and say, "Let me
tell you a story."
S You knew you
were in for a joke.
I knew- Lane
pretty comfortably
by the time my dad
. died.
There's not a lot I
remember about
those days sur-
rounding his
death, but I do
NDA remember Lane's
LEAR calm, caring 'voice
- and his welcome as
I endured my grief.
His attitude was professional
and yet that of a caring
friend. It was just what was
needed in his line of work.


Was this the same man who
had come into my office
weekly with a grin and a
joke?
The same guy who teased
his. family unmercifully,
sometimes putting a old fam-
ily picture in for publication?
Was this the same guy who
would make-up a rhyme that
would wish them happy
birthdays or some other
thing?
No doubt about it.
It was then that I learned
that while he was great at
remembering a good joke, he
was far better at caring for
those who were dealing with
grief.
That's a hard job and not
just anybody can do it it
takes somebody special.
I remember trying to talk


him out of one particular
thing at a funeral because it
-was distressing one of my rel-
atives. Calmly, and with com-
plete knowledge and under-
standing of why it had to hap-
pen just that way, he
explained it to me and we
rallied, we did it "just that
way."
That's because Lane knew
best.
And Lane not only helped
families in the obvious ways,
but in the not so obvious.'
Anytime we (the Times)
worked to put an article
together on someone who
had passed away, Lane was
receptive to helping us make
it happen and ensuring that
the person was honored.
Either he or his staff would
do things like gather photos


or contact the family and ask
if they would be willing to
talk to the newspaper
' While there's a spiritual
realm we can hold on to and
Lane's staff is awesome at
their respective jobs, I still
know how good Lane was at
his work and this weekend a
selfish little thought crossed
my mind and I had to wonder
"Who's going to comfort us
now?"
And then I thought, who's
going to comfort Lane's fami-
ly?
That bothered me and
while I didn't come up with
an answer and will never be
able to do what Lane did,
how he did it, know that we
give you our best know that
we hold you in our hearts and
thoughts and prayers.

I|. -Woman dies in wreck


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

A 44-year-old woman died
Sunday afternoon in a one-car
accident about two miles
north of Bushnell on 1-75.
Lisa Kathleen Callahan,
address unavailable, a pas-
senger in a 1987 Dodge
Raider driven by James
Bailey, 42, of Eustis, died
when the vehicle she was
traveling in, veered off the
interstate about 2 p.m. and
struck a tree, according to a
Florida Highway Patrol
report.
Bailey was traveling south-
bound when for an unknown


reason, he suddenly swerved
to the right and the vehicle
began to rotate clockwise,
according to the report. The
vehicle left the roadway and
went down an embankment,
overturning and striking a
small tree.
Callahan, in the front pas!'
senger seat, was pronounced
dead at the scene, according
to the report.
Bailey was transported by
helicopter to Orlando
Regional Medical Center for
treatment.
Seatbelts were in use by the
driver and passenger, the
report stated. Speed was not a
contributing cause to the acci-
dent.

Haven offers help for abuse victims County gains new


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

What do women in search of
a shopping spree, women run-
rning from domestic abuse and
women cleaning out the stor-
5age room have in common?
Aside from womanhood,
mommy-hood or being a single
working woman, it might be
,'Enduring Rose, food preserva-
tion lessons at the county
'extension office, learning the
'computer or getting a GED.
The list of commonalities far
,exceeds the common thread of
'being women especially in
"Sumter County with the efforts
of Haven of Lake and Sumter
Counties, Inc.
The organization. provides
'temporary emergency shelter
,and long-term transitional
'shelter for victims of domestic
violence, according to Aldene
-Thomas, one of the organiza-
-tion coordinators.

*example, they're working to

Preservation lessons and

'Office.
On Thursday nights, there's

'Support Group meets 6 p.m. to


8 p.m. at the Bushnell library
and the organization runs The
Enduring Rose a second-
hand store, created from dona-
tions.
Residents are clothed from
the donations given to the
shelter, but there are items
that can't be used by the resi-
dents, so they're passed on to
the store. Proceeds from sales
in the store are then used to
buy items not donated or pro-
vided through
other sources,
according to The Sum
Thomas.
"We clothe the serves a

the donations to for a

sizes that weren't
donated,"
Thomas said. Purchases may
-include any items not already
provided underclothes, per-
sonal .hygiene products, dish-
washing or laundry soap.,
"We run a regular house,"
she said.
And they're always looking
for donations anything from
the clothes to the dish soap to
cash.
Anyone interested in drop-
ping off donations at the
Enduring Rose in Wildwood is
asked to call first to ensure
that available staff is on hand.
Thomas said if they have
only one person working the
store, it's impossible for them
to deal with taking in a dona-
tion and customers in the front
area at the same time.

the Leesburg office 2600 South
Street in Leesburg anytime
between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
There are two shelters in
the Haven system. The
Leesburg facility houses about
20 women for a nine-week
period and focuses on their
safety and the safety of their
children, Thomas said. '
The Sumter facility serves a
maximum of 13 women at a
time and provides shelter for a
longer time span.
Thomas said

ximum of dent in the

span. closer to meeting
her goals. If so,
they extend the
stay to help her
move forward.
S' uzie Freedberg and Karyn
Newman are currently,coordi-
nating the local shelter.
More than 100 women
passed through the Sumter
shelter this past year.
While Lake focuses on safe-
ty, "Our focus is to help them
get their lives back together so
they can be a productive mem-
ber of the community,"
Thomas said.
She points out the abuser is
not always a male spouse or
boyfriend, saying it can even
be children or grandchildren
She explained that domestic
violence and sexual assault
are both control issues.
"Neither of them have any-
thing to do with the individual
or sex for that matter.


It's a control issue."
Thomas urges anyone who's
spouse or boyfriend does
things like checking their
speedometer to see how far
the person has traveled or
keeping track of time gone to
the store, to start paying atten-
tion.
'"At least come to the class-
es," she said.
During those classes, they
even offer 20 tips on spotting
an abuser by the third date.
She said abuse starts out
very simple, very subtle -
maybe as simple as urging a
person to have a drink when
they don't want to.
The progression moves the
victim into place slowly.
Thomas said they've had col-
lege graduates look back after
getting out a domestic abuse
situation and wonder how
they didn't see how obvious it
was.
"You can't see the forest for
the trees is so true of domestic
violeni:e," she said.
That and the fact that
women are relationship ori-
ented, which she said means
some would sell their self,
identity, whatever for a rela-
tionship.
"They will sell out so cheap.
"The real tragedy in all of
this is that children grow up
thinking this is normal."
Newman serves as a child
advocate at the Sumter facility.

donation to Haven at the
Enduring Rose, call 748-5857

construction manager

AMANDA MIMS
Times Correspondent


Richard Mason, a former
facilities management coordi-
nator, worked for the
University of South Florida
for 37 years. He recently
gained employment with the
Sumter County Board of
County Commissioners in
November, and has hit the
ground running.
Mason became the county's
first new construction manag-
er.
He said he had been busy
with repairing county build-
ings damaged by hurricanes
when he got here. Roof and
water damage were the
biggest problems, and many
buildings had to have repairs
made to them. The Royal and
Lake Panasoffkee fire stations
were shift the hardest, and the
couflnt still has some repairs
to be made.
"We have a fine mainte-
nance department, and we're
working on new ideas," he
said.
As overseer of all renova-
tions, repairs, maintenance,
and construction to county
buildings, Mason said the
county is looking at a lot of
changes for the future. Still in
the planning stages are an
expansion to the county jail, a
new probation office, and
state attorney's office, which
will probably be located
behind the judicial building
at the courthouse.
Also, the government build-


Richard Mason
ing in Wildwood, which hous-
es the Department of
Children and Families and
other services, is an ongoing
major renovation project for
the county.
Mason is also looking ahead
to enlarging the County
Commission meeting room,
which Sumter seems to have
outgrown.
"The county is fast growing
now," he said. "We have a lot
to work on for the future."
He said right now, they're
working on setting priorities
and focusing on what's need-
ed the most.

"How doI decide which funeral
home to call when the time comes?"

Aside from the requirement that all funeral homes be
licensed by the state, some basic questions you might ask
when selecting a funeral home include: Are they flexible
enough to handle your specific needs? Are decisions made
locally or from an out-of-town corporate office? Are they
full service? Do they sub-contract services such as
cremation or do they provide these options on-site?
Everyone has different priorities and questions about
funeral pre-planning. We invite your questions and we,
will respect your priorities. Please call us for a no cost, no'
obligation, no pressure appointment to get the facts on
how you can benefit from funeral pre-planning .

SUMTER COUNTY (FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JANUARY 6, 2005, PAGE 13


Tking ooka bk aDh

Taking a look back at the past


ell, we are in a New
Year and for my part
the past year went by
pretty good without too many
major problems.
A lot of us how-
ever suffered
through several
major hurricanes
but as bad as all of g-
the hurricanes .
were they were not
near as bad as the
terrible disasters L .
that have just taken
place in Asia.
Thankfully, the
terrorists left us
alone right here on JAMIE
our own shore but Outdoc
they sure are still


raising havoc over
in Iraq and other parts of the
world.
Frankly folks, I have about
come to the conclusion that
we are going to have this
screwball type of terrorism to
deal with from now on.
There are many conven-
tional and unconventional
ways for our government to
contend with and fight terror-
ism but these nuts nowadays
who have, absolutely no
respect or regard for human
life are a completely new type
of threat and there is no way
to absolutely fully protect
anyplace or anyone from
them.
Anyway, we are in a New
Year; I have not made any
New Year resolutions. I made
a few in the past years but for
the most part I don't recall
ever putting much stock in
those I did make.
This year however I am
going to try and do more fish-
ing and a little less hunting.
For the past couple of years, I
have been letting my fishing
slide a bit and it is now time
to take care of that problem.
The specks are starting to
tear it up in Lake Harris and
some other close by good fish-
ing lakes and if nothing hap-
pens I am going to try and put
a few of those delicacies in


the freezer.
Speckled perch don't put
up much of a fight when it
comes down to real serious
fishing action like you get
from a big large
mouth trophy-sized
bass or some salt-
water game fish
such as a big red
but they sure are
mighty good to eat
and for my part
they are as good or
better than any
other freshwater
game fish. Catfish
aren't too bad
ADAMS either but specks
Writer are better in my
"N""""" way of thinking.
It doesn't really
take a lot of fancy fishing gear
to go after speckled perch
and in fact all you really need'
is a couple of cane poles and
a bucket of live minnows.
The tricky part is finding
out where the specks are
located but if you fish Lake
Harris or any of the better
speck producing lakes all you
have to do is find where all
the boats are and that is
where the specks will be.
A lot of specks are caught
right from the shoreline and
especially off of the fishing
piers that the state has con-
structed over the past years.
There was a time not so long
ago when you could fish off
the long Howey Bridge
between Howey In The Hills
and Tavares where state high-
way 19 crosses Lake Harris
but for some reason the state
in its infinite wisdom put a
stop to this great past time.
A lot of folks sure had many
a good time going over to
Howey and catching limits of
specks at night while fishing
from the bridge but as so
often happens, the state put a
stop to. a good thing that was
being enjoyed by many fisher-
men of all ages.
Back during the time.I used
to be a game warden for the
state, there would be several


hundred fishermen with
lanterns handing down from
the Howey Bridge and the
light from the lanterns
attracting the specks and
there is no way of knowing
how. many limits of specks
were caught over the years by
fishermen from the Howey
Bridge.
Anyway, I am getting my
stuff together and if nothing
happens to mess me up, I am
going to try and
put a few specks
in the boat in Anywayj
the next day or the great z
two.
I also plan on have bee
doing a whole with lately
lot more bass to
fishing this to get o0
spring. Actually, water and
bass fishing serious
using live shin-
ers is my most
favorite way to
fish.


I know there are a lot of
purist bass fishermen who
look down there noses at us
shiner fisherman but that is
too bad because if the truth
be told a bass fisherman
using shiners will catch many
more big bass that those who
only use artificial bait.
I also like to bass fish with
artificial bait from time. to
time but when I want action
and a lot of fast action let me
have my shiners.
Thetfull moon in January is
a good time to go after both,
specks and big bass.
This is the time they will
start to spawn and the big


females go on a feeding fren-
zy right before going on their
spawning beds.
As far as catching big bass, I
never keep a bass that weighs
over a couple of pounds and
there are not very many of
them that size either.
A big eight or ten pound
bass is the future breeding
stock for bass fishermen and
any time I catch one I quickly
release it back into the water


folks, with
weather we
n blessed
/, it is time
ut on the
I do a little
fishing.


If there is one
thing I cannot
tolerate is for
some of those so-
called TV fishing
experts after
catching any
type fish to keep
it out of the
water posing for
the camera until
it has no chance
to revive and
make it.


With all the technology that
is available today, even if you
should desire to have a big
bass mounted, there are ways
to duplicate the actual bass
caught with a perfect repro-,
duction.
Anyway folks, with the
great weather we have been
blessed,with lately, it is.time.
to get out on the water and do
a little serious fishing.
Better yet take a youngun
or two with you and if you
don't have a kid or grandkid
of your own find a neighbor
who has a youngun and intro-
duce a boy or girl to the real
world.


Poinsettias, after Christmas


Last year's Christmas poin-
settias can give added enjoy-
ment in the landscape if
cared for properly now.
Many of the new varieties
will retain their leaves and
decorative bracts far into the
New Year.
Eventually the lower
leaves will begin to drop and
the bracts will loose the bril-
liant color. At this point the
plant should be placed in a
cool dry location. Give the
plant only enough water to
keep the soil from becoming
entirely dry so that the stem
doesn't wither
After the danger of frost
has passed, the older vari-
eties of poinsettias can be
planted outdoors in the
warmer parts of central and
south Florida. (The newer
varieties usually just bloom
once and are not worth sav-
ing). The poinsettia is very
sensitive to cold and many
years the plants are frozen
before they have a chance to
bloom.
Choose a sunny, well-
drained location protected
from north winds and frost.
Also select an area where
plants will not receive any
light at night. Poinsettias
must have almost total dark-
ness before flower, buds are
formed. Plants are prevented
from flowering when they
are exposed to electric lights
from the streets or from the
home. Even a brief exposure
to electric lights will prevent
poinsettias flowering or
markedly delay flowering.
In order to keep plants
bushy and compact, thus
yielding more flowers, pinch
the top one half inch from
new shoots when they reach
4 to 5 inches. The.branches


that are pinched will develop
two or more shoots. Repeat
the pinching process when
there are enough shoots to 4o
so. However, do not pinch
any more after the first weak
in September To do so will
delay or prevent flowering 'at
Christmas time.
After the plants have be n
in the ground for abou,-a
month, apply one or two
tablespoon of a complete gar-
den fertilizer such as 6-6-6 r
8-8-8. Usually, 3 applications,
(March, June, Sept.) per year
are recommended. Water
well each week during cdry
weather. :

When pigs fly


Isaw a pig fly on
Christmas Eve. At first I
wasn't sure because it
wasn't in full flight.
It was more like
this pig that I've
been wanting to
see fly had sprout-
ed wings and was
taxiing down the
runway, readying
for take-off.
I'm still trying to
process this, so .
please bear with -
me.
This flying pig
thing began last NAI
year. This has been KENI
what I've wanted
to see God do.in my
life for a very long time -
forgive me for being vague
about what it is exactly; it's
deeply personal. More than
that, I'm purposely choosing
to be vague, hoping that you
will insert the thing you want
God to do in your life into my
story, making it your story.
That way, maybe you will be
encouraged to believe God
truly can do what you think is
impossible.
As I started writing this col-
umn, I looked up the one I
wrote for last New Year's. In
it I had written about want-
ing to see a pig fly and in 2004
resolving to look for it and to
believe that it could. I wrote
about my friend Charlie, "the
raving optimist;" who
believes the impossible can
and does happen and that
God answers the prayers of
his people and gives them
the deepest desires of their
hearts.
I had also written about
being Charlie's diametrical
opposite, a "raving skeptic."
Whenever Charlie and I
would discuss this thing I've
wanted to see God do he
wbuld laugh and tell me how
he could see it happening.
Without a doubt, no ifs, ands
or buts.
I'd just say, "Yeah, yeah.
It'll happen when pigs fly." In
other words, "never"
You know how it is. God
places a desire in your heart,.
or so you think. It's a good
desire, a God-honoring
desire. So you begin to think
about it happening and you
dare to dream what it might
look like once it happens.
And because it's a good thing,
a God thing, you know it's
going to happen.. .but you just
don't know when. So you
watch for it and wait for it
and imagine the hows and
whens and where of it hap-
pening.
You dare to whisper it to
your closest friends and they.
dare to dream about it With
you. And you pray about it
with great excitement and
anticipation..
But then when the thing
doesn't happen and you start
doubting whether it truly was
God who put the desire in
.your heart and you begin to
grow cynical...
And you tell yourself,.
"Yeah, when pigs fly," and
you try not to want this good

Experts urge Floridians to



replace trees after hurricanes


thing, this God thing, but you
can't help it you can't
unwant something you want.
So you reach a point where
you ask God to
either do the thing
you want, take the
want away or help
you to want him
more.
All this past year
I've been asking
God to help me
want him more
than I want this
good thing, to be
OK with him being
ICY God and me being
NEDY not God, to be 'con-
- tent with not hav-
ing it.
John Eldredge, in his book
"The Journey of Desire,"
wrote that contentment is not
freedom from desire, but
freedom of desire. He said,
"Being content is not pre-
tending that everything is the
way you wish it would be; it is
not acting as though you have
no wishes. Rather, it is no
longer being ruled by your
desires."
That way, if the thing you
want doesn't happen just as
you imagine then you're not
too terribly disappointed, at
least not disappointed to the
point of despair. Not only
that, when it does happen it's
because it's God's doing from
start to finish. The Bible
writer Paul says that if God
begins a good work in you, he
will be faithful to complete it.
When he does, it will have
his fingerprints all over it,
bigger, better, best.
When that happens, the
only thing you can do is wor-
ship.
That's what you do when
you see a pig fly. After, you
stare at it in a combination
belief-disbelief, once you rub
your eyes and pinch yourself
to see if you're awake or
asleep and dreaming -' you
worship. Because God is
faithful and creative and
delights in doing the impossi-
ble when you least expect it.
You worship because God is
God and you are not.
That's what happened to
me when I saw my pig taxiing
down the runway on
Christmas Eve. I ior-hiped.
That's what I'll continue
doing whether or not the pig
ever truly soars through the
clouds. For it's not seeing
pigs. fly, but it's knowing the
One whose throne sits above
the clouds that prompts my
worship.
So here's to 2005. May .the
skies be full of the rustling of
pigs' wings and may your
heart and mine be filled with
worship.

. After this year's active hur-
ricane season, many
Floridians may be reluctant
to replace trees lost in storms
or trees that damaged homes,
businesses and other proper-
ties. But experts at the
University of Florida say
urban forests should be
restored for economic, envi-
ronmental and aesthetic rea-
sons.
"It's important not to have a
negative reaction or backlash.
against trees because they
provide so many environmen-
tal benefits," said Mary
Duryea, an assistant dean for
research with UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, or UF/IFAS. "Trees
provide shade, conserve
energy and reduce the well
known 'heat island' effect in
cities caused by concrete and
pavement."
From an economic stand-
point, trees enhance the
value and appearance or
"curb appeal" of homes, and
other properties. In fact,
there are several studies that
show psychological and
social health are also better
in areas with trees and other
landscaping, she said.
Duryea, an urban forestry
expert who has studied the
impact of hurricanes on


urban forests since
Hurricane Andrew hit South
Florida in 1992, said tree-loss
estimates for the 2004 hurri-
cane season range between
10 percent and 38 percent in
areas of the state that were
directly hit by hurricanes,
based on wind speeds and
comparisons with her past
research.
She said consumers should
not be afraid of replanting
trees. Instead, they should
arm themselves with knowl-.
edge about planting the right
tree in the right place.
"Although there are no fool-
proof species or trees, that
will stand up to wind no mat-
ter what, we have found that
some tree species are more
wind resistant than others,"
she said.
In North Florida, the trees
to be avoided because they
have the least wind resist-
ance include sand pine, lau-
rel oak, turkey oak, water oak,
red maple, southern red
cedar and the pecan tree.
Trees with greater wind
resistance include dogwood,
live oak, sabal palm, sand live
oak, southern magnolia,
Florida sugar maple, dahoon
holly, black gum, sycamore
and sweetgum.

VA Programs for
Veterans with
Post-Traumatic
Stress Disorder
Post-Traumatic Stress
Disorder (PTSD) is an ail-
ment resulting from expo-
sure to an extreme stress
involving direct or indirect
threat of death, serious
injury or a physical threat.
The trauma may be experi-
enced alone, as in rape or
assault, or in the company of
others, as in military combat.
The events that can cause
*PTSD are called "stressors."
They include natural disas-
ters (floods, earthquakes),
accidents (car accidents, air-
plane crashes, large fires) or
deliberate man-made disas-
ters (bombing, torture, death
camps)..
Symptoms include recur-
rent thoughts of a traumatic
event, reduced' involvement
in work or outside interests,
hyper alertness, anxiety and.
irritability.
The disorder apparently is
more severe and longer last-
ing when the stress is of
human design.
More than 185,000 veterans
were listed by the
Department of Veterans
Affairs (VA) in 2003 as having
PTSD as a service-connected
disability.

poor wind resistance include
coconut palm, queen palm,
Australian pine and the
melaleuca. Trees that are
more wind resistant in South
Florida include live oak,
sabal palm, sand live oak,
southern magnolia, gumbo
limbo, boxleaf stopper, pygmy
date palm, Christmas palm
and royal palms.
Duryea said these cate-
gories are not cast in stone,
and wind resistance depends
on the individual situation.
Trees considered more
resistant to wind may lose
foliage and branches, but
tend to remain standing.
Size and location of the
trees also matter in the urban
environment, said Ed
Gilman, a UF/IFAS professor
of urban horticulture.
"Large trees, those
between 60 to 100 feet, are
more likely to blow over than
well-established young trees -
trees five years or older,"
Gilman said.
Florida pine trees such as
slash, longleaf and loblolly
pines are prime examples of
.trees that are vulnerable. In
some areas of the state such
as Pensacola and Vero Beach,
pines grow very large, while
pines in other places such as
Cape Coral have a shorter


and stockier growth pattern
that helps them endure high
winds.
Gilman also said that trees
with large, dense' canopies
are more likely to blow over
during hurricanes. I
"If you can't see through th6
tree canopy, then you need to
prune the tree," Gilman said.
"A homeowner should prune
the outside edge of the
canopy but only up to th
point they can reach standing
on the first step of a ladder. If
the canopy reaches any high.,
er than that, they should call
a certified arborist to help." ,
The most important thing
to remember in an urban
environment is the location of
the trees. .
Gilman has observed trees
that are weakened because
their roots were deflected by
curbs, sidewalks' and drive-
ways. '
Planting trees too close to
homes and other buildings
can also cause problems, an
Gilman recommends a 10-fo t
distance from any structures.:
"These rules are nat
absolute, but they can l
helpful. When planting a tred,
think about where the roots
and the top is going to grow
before you plant," Gilman
said.
