Scotty's reaches an end, must liquidate


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
It appears that Scotty's Inc.
finally will be closing down.
Reportedly, the once-giant in
the Florida hardware industry
has asked the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Delaware to liquidate
its assets.
The action will effect two
locations here in Highlands
County, the one remaining
Scotty's store in Lake Placid
and the Sebring Outlet Mall in
the Sebring Plaza.


"The Outlet Mall will be
closed to the public on Jan. 15,
said manager Stacy Seay, who
referred all other questions to
Scotty's corporate headquar-
ters.
The outlet mall once was a
Scotty's store, but became an
outlet mall last year as part of a .,,
new marketing strategy for the
company.
Manager Robert Tillis of the
Scotty's hardware in Lake
Placid also referred all ques-
tions to the company's head-


quarters in Winter Haven.
They had not returned calls
as of press time.
A Scotty's store in Avon Park
quietly shut its doors in
September. Officials from
Anchor Properties, who run the
Avon Square shopping plaza
where the store was located said
they were not notified of the
closing.
It was in September that the
Winter Haven-based hardware
chain filed for Chapter 11 reor-
ganization. At the time, officials


blamed the ravages of
Hurricane Charley as a factor in
that action.
According to court docu-
ments, the company was not
able to find the financing that
would allow it to stay in busi-
ness.
"The debtors have deter-
mined that a prompt sale of sub-
stantially all their assets at the
stores via going-out-of-business
sales is essential to maximize
the value of these assets for the
benefit of our creditors," read


court documents filed by the
company's attorneys on Dec.
17.
Officials from the home
improvement chain indicated
they wanted to start the sales as
soon as possible in an effort "to
take full advantage of the peak
winter selling season."
The company reportedly is in
negotiations with retail liquida-
tion consultants to handle that
phase of the operation.
Apparently everything in the

SEBRING At 18 most
girls are looking at a new
driver license but at least one
local teen has her sights set a
bit higher.
Katy Wack will be flying to
Venice today in search of her
pilot's license.
"It's going to be a sur-
prise," her mother Kim Wack
said.
The local teen has been
taking lessons at Lockwood
Aviation at the Sebring
Regional Airport.
"She got
into fln~ n
because oL
her grandfa-
ther, then she
just took offI
on it," W.ck
said.
S Her grand- WACK
father is the
Rev. Mike Karl of the New
Testament Mission in
Sebring.
"I did it to get over my fear
of heights," he said.
Karl started flying in 1981
after he, went to Israel and
climbed to the top of Mt.
Sinai in an effort to quell his
acrophobia.
"I had a friend who paid for
my flying lessons because I
always wanted to learn," he
said.


Bouncing back and forth
between instructors and dif-
ferent kinds of aircraft, Karl
finally earned his wings.
In addition to flying,for
pleasure, Karl has done at
least one missionary flight.
Known as "Mission Aire" it
was done aboard a Douglas
Aircraft DC-3.
"I got six hours on that
plane and Katy got some seat
'time in it too," he said.
Karl said his granddaughter
is one of two he had talked to
about learning to fly but Wack
v., Ihi only one who caughli.
the flying bug.
"The other one, Beverly
Reyes, decided she would
rather, go to nursing school
but Kathleen stuck with it,"
he said.
Wack has been interested
in flying since she was 15.
However, the terrorist attacks
on New York and Washington
on Sept. 11, 2001, derailed
her efforts for a time.
"That pushed things way
back," her mother said.
The plan today is for her
and her instructor, Romke
Sikkema of Lockwood
Aviation, to take off for
Venice about 5:45 a.m. where
she will meet the flight exam-
iner.
"She's a very good pilot
and a very good student.

VOLUME 23/NUMBER 32


BARRY FOSTER/News-Sun
Ambulances converged in the Highlands Homes area in Sebring Friday morning in response to a call of
a pedestrian hit by a vehicle. Terry Kimbrough, 43, was taken to a landing zone where she was airlifted
to Tampa General Hospital.


Victim taken to

Tampa General
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The investiga-
tion continues into a hit and run
incident Friday morning in the
Highlands Homes area.
Officers talked with people
congregated near the intersec-
tion of Roseland Avenue and
Fifth Street trying to ascertain
exactly what happened to cause
a local woman to be struck by a
vehicle.
Terry Kimbrough, 43, was
taken to Tampa General
Hospital after she was hit by a
Dodge van in the Fifth Street
area, but how it happened is
still being ascertained.
Sebring Police Corporal
Greg Barlaug said early infor-
mation indicated the incident
might possibly have stemmed
from a domestic quarrel
between an old girlfriend and a
new girlfriend of a local man.
He said Kimbrough had been
standing in the yard of a home


on Fifth Street and had an
exchange of words with the
driver of the van.
During the altercation, police
said it was reported that
Kimbrough had apparently
charged the van carrying a
stick. The van reportedly then
began to move and Kimbrough
was struck.
"We're still investigating to
find out how that happened,"
Kimbrough said.
According to reports, the van
also struck a parked car at a
home off Roseland Avenue.
There was no indication how
badly that vehicle was dam-
aged.
Lawmen have identified the
driver of the van and have ques-
tioned her but as of press time,
her name had not been released
and no charges had been filed in
the case.
Officers said that it appeared
that Kimbrough recently had
moved from Wauchula to
Sebring.
Tampa General Hospital offi-
cials said Kimbrough was treat-
ed and later released.

By ROMONA WASHINGTON
IEecutive Editor
A conversation last year
between organizers for the
annual Avon Park Rotary
Legends Challenge and a writer
for Circle Track & Racing
Technology magazine has led to
even more national attention
being directed at the February
event.
The race is featured in the
February 2005 edition of Circle
Track, which is on newsstands
now.
Lee Ann Hinskey, customer
relations/marketing .or Wells
Dodge Chrysler in Avon Park,
said when magazine officials
heard how the race was put on
as a fund-raiser for the Avon
Park Noon Rotary Club and
how the community came
together to help put the race on,


she's wanted to do a one-day
variety show for some time.
When she attended Hoover
High School in North Canton.
Ohio. choral students would
present the "'Spring Thing,"
which was mostly music. She
suggested doing it in Sehring
this year, and the idea went over
well. except the name trans-
formed to Spring Fling.
This is the first year, but if it
takes off, Zengler would like to
see a theme each year. This
year's theme is a sentimental
journey, based on a song Dean
Martin would perform that told
about faraway places and the
song, "A Sentimental Journey,,"
which will be the opening song.
She began planning the event
last February, and really began
organizing it in August.



they felt it was a natural for
their magazine.
"Normally car races are not
held as fund raisers. They
thought it was a really neat
idea," Hinskey said.
The article was written by
Tim Osterlund, sales manager
at Wells Dodge Chrysler.
In it, Osterlund tells of how
the city of 8,600 comes togeth-
er to put on this fund-raiser race
just 15 miles north of where the
world-famous 12 Hours of
Sebring has been held for more
than 50 years.
Since the only official race-
track in Highlands County is
home to the 12-hour race, Avon
Park has had to improvise for a
racetrack by converting the
high school football stadium
into an oval track. And, in order
to do so, community partners


Hurricanes didn't put her back
too much. hbu she had to wait
tw\o months to get the music for
a special arrangement for the
finale, "A Tribute To World
Peace." arranged by Jay
Giallomhardo.
Sponsored by the News-Sun,
the show will have 41 perform-
ers. which includes soloists,
chorus and dancers, doing as
many as 26 numbers, routines
or skits.
Show times are 2, 5 and 8
p.m. at Highlands Little
Theatre. Tickets are $10 each
and available at:
American Red Cross,
Highlands County Service
Center, 1306 SE Lakeview
Drive, Sebring;
Blessings Book Store,
2151 U.S. 27 South, Sebring;


like Brooker Fencing and Jahna
Concrete join forces in trans-
posing the athletic field into a
field for Legends speed.
Hinskey and Osterlund
became involved in promoting
the Rotary Legends Challenge
because their boss, Stanley
Wells, has coordinated the
event since its inception.
This year's race is set for
Feb. 26-27, again at Avon Park
High School's football field.
Tickets are available at Wells

SEBRING Quite a few
people in Highlands County
can remember party lines,
newsreels, 45 rpm records,
drive-in theaters or restaurants,
and 15-cent hamburgers at
McDonald's.
A lot of people may be too
young to remember these
things, but have trouble remem-
bering where they put their
keys.
Both groups can benefit from
simple exercises to keep their
minds sharpened, said Kathryn
Doddridge, a mental health
counselor and director of busi-
ness development at Daybreak
Behavioral Health Services, a
part of Florida Hospital
Heartland Division.
All people have sensory
memory, short-term and long-
term memory. Sensory recalls
sights, sounds, touch, smell and
taste. Short-term memory, also
called a working memory, holds
a limited amount of information
at one time. Long-term memory
holds a vast amount of informa-
tion and seems to have no lim-
its to its capacity. People learn
and. retain thoughts throughout
their lives that are tied to either
events, facts or skills.
Retrieving those memories gets
easier if they are stored well.
People don't forget merely
from age, Doddridge said.
Psychologists theorize now that
people forget because of inter-
ference, whether from a stroke,
depression, prescriptions, hor-
monal changes, alcohol, amne-
sia or anxiety. The more stress,
the more people forget.
Fixing memory in the mind
is easier with the right method.
Known as pneumonic devices,
memory cues can help people

remember difficult material.
Initializing
The reason why so many
government agencies use ini-
tials, such as CIA, FBI, or EPA,
is because it helps people
remember the agency without
having to use the entire name.
The method works well for
general information.
"HOMES," for example, helps
people remember the Great
Lakes: Huron, Ontario,
Michigan, Erie and Superior.
Chunking
Government agencies use
this, too. Social Security num-
bers are grouped in sets to make
all nine numbers easier to
recall. Phone numbers use
chunking, as do security codes
and combination locks.
Visualizing
To visualize, a person simply
takes a number or word and
visualizes something associated
with it. Doddridge said she
could always remember a
friend's phone number ended in
1776 by visualizing Gen.
George Washington crossing
the Delaware River. The
method works well on names,
too.
Communicating
Talking, socializing and
recalling memories with others
helps people retain those mem-
ories. People who spend their
days in isolation, especially
those without family tend to
repeat themselves because they
don't receive outside stimula-
tion.
Puzzling
Finally, people who do. brain-
teasing puzzles, reading, or
playing computer or board
games will exercise their brains
and get more mental exercise.

hers. When asked for identifi-
cation, she reached from the
back seat to the center con-
sole, which the deputy saw
had a rolled-up "Backwoods"
cigar pouch.
The deputy asked if it was
hers, and she said no, but said
he:could take a look at it. As
the deputy reached for the
pouch, he saw a black
"Basics" zippered cloth bag.
Again, Hawthorne said it
wasn't hers.
In the cigar pouch, the
deputy found a clear Baggie
with a green leafy substance
that field-tested positive for
marijuana. Inside fhe Basics
bag, he found the same thing.
Also in the bag, he found 11
green zip bags containing a
white powder that appeared
to be cocaine packaged for,
street sale, with another four
empty zip bags. All the bags


field-tested positive for
cocaine residue.
In the big bag, the deputy
found a pill bottle wrapped in
black electrician's tape that
contained a white waxy sub-
stance that field-tested posi-
tive for cocaine. Another zip
bag contained what appeared
to be a generic Valium pill.
When asked about the
drugs, she said she didn't
know about them or how they
got in her car and suggested
they belonged to her male
companion, but when
deputies asked him, he said
he didn't know the drugs
were in the car.
Deputies arrested
Hawthorne on charges of pos-
session of cocaine with intent
to sell or distribute, posses-
sion of less than 20 grams of
cannabis, possession of drug
paraphernalia, and possession
of generic Valium with intent
to distribute. Bail was set at
$11,000.

asked for and got permission
to search MacDonald and the
car. MacDonald didn't have
anything on him. The officer
then asked what MacDonald
had put between the two
seats, and was told it was a
straw. Then MacDonald
asked him not to arrest him.

illegal drugs, and MacDonald
allegedly said he did .

Sebring had its own Davy Crockett

Army. The tank was used during World War II.


Lake Placid soldier joins


Phantom Regiment event


Special to the News-Sun
Private 1st Class Derrall
Escobar has always been a his-
tory buff.
While he was growing up in
Lake Placid he had hoped to
one day join a Civil War re-
enactor group, but never in his
wildest dreams did he imagine
that one day he would be one of
a handful of American soldiers
participating in one of the
largest World War II remem-
brances in history.
When Escobar returned to
Germany earlier this year after
serving a tour of duty in Iraq, he
became involved 'wi.i the
Phantom Regiment. a small
group of soldiers who have ded-
icated themselves to preserving
WWII history. This group of
about 12 keeps and maintains
authentic WWII clothing,
weaponry and equipment,
including one of the only work-
ing Sherman tanks still kept by
the Army.
They have been invited to
- participate in several battles and
liberation re-enactments in
Germany and Luxembourg and
Dec. 17-20, they represented
America in the 60th anniversary
commemoration of the Battle of.
the Bulge in Bastogne,
Belgium. This was one of the
most important land battles of
WWII, in which outnumbered
and overwhelmed forces held
off a powerful German attack
long enough for reinforcements
and Allied air forces to stop the
German offensive.
The Phantom Regiment par-
ticipated in a 12-mile tank road
trek and visited all major battle
sites with WWII veterans who
had returned to Bastogne for the
anniversary. They even climbed
into the actual foxholes that had
been dug 60 years ago by the
American soldiers.
The next day they marched in
parades and ceremonies honor-
ing the sacrifices of the 76,890
American soldiers who were
killed, wounded or missing dur-
ing the battle to defend
Bastogne.
That evening there was a re-
creation of the battle, including
a blackout of the city, search-
lights blazing, explosions
everywhere and air raid sirens
blaring. '

"It was just like being in the
actual battle," Escobar said.
Later as the Phantom
Regiment joined with hundreds
of other Belgian and French
soldiers to re-create the libera-
tion of Bastogne. Escobar and
several foot soldiers led the
charge over a hill, to be greeted
by thousands of Belgians. wav-
ing sparklers and cheering.
"All the people wanted to
reach out .and touch us, take
pictures with us and show how
much they appreciated the
Americans," Escobar said. -
One of his favorite memories
took place after everything was
over.
"We were riding on our tank
that evening through the forests
of the Ardennes, where much of


the battle took place. Snow was
falling, blanketing the country-
side. Everything was so peace-
ful and beautiful it really
took me back in time for
awhile," he said.
Escobar will remain in
Germany this spring for train-
ing exercises with the 1st
Armored Division. where .he
serves as the gunner of an
M1Al Abrams tank crew.
Recently in November he was
selected Soldier of the Month
for his battalion.
He hopes to come home in
June before returning for his
second deployment to Iraq. He
is the son of Omar and Susie
Escobar of Lake Placid and has
two younger brothers, Daniel
and David Escobar.

By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun correspondent
The movie, "Davy Crockett,
King of The Wild Frontier,"
marks its 50th anniversary in
June 2005, but old-timers of
Highlands County may remem-
ber Sebring's very own Davy
Crockett.
While newspaper and maga-
zine articles and television pro-
grams recap the career of Fess
Parker and his roles as Davy
Crockett and Daniel Boone, it is
Abbo Brooker who some
Highlands County residents
will remember.
Jesse Watson was the theatre
manager at the Florida Theatre
on North Ridgewood Drive in
Sebring. He held the youthful
audience to strict obedience to
his rules or they would be eject-
ed. Parents could drop their
children at the theatre, fully
confident that they were in
good hands.
Watson was not only good
with kids but he also knew how
to advertise. He hired Abbo
Brooker to dress like Davy
Crockett, complete with a coon-
skin cap. Brooker would pace
back and forth in front of the
theatre carrying an unloaded
musket for several days before
the July 15, 1955, movie and
for several hours before the
movie started each day it was
showing.
Aldon Johnson Brooker
(Abbo) was born Dec. 12, 1935,
to W.H. Brooker and Elsie
Rimes Brooker. Elsie was from
Lorida and W.H. was a carpen-
ter from Texas. They had five
other boys and two girls.
Abbo Brooker and his sib-
lings attended Sebring High
School, where the middle
school is now, on Pine and
Lemon Streets. For many years
he was a caretaker/watchman of
Kahn Groves for Marvin Kahn.
Brooker can still be seen fre-
quently strolling along Nbrth
Ridgewood Drive. Like Fess
Parker, Brooker has a unique
philosophy. To meet Brooker is
a memorable experience, easily
'remembered and always recog-
nizable.

Some of his thoughts and
observations are shared below:


a- r

Aldon 'Abbo' Johnson Brooker, Sebring's own Davy Crockett, paced
in front of the Florida Theatre to advertise the 'Davy Crockett, King
of the Wild Frontier Movie.' He wore an official coonskin cap and
carried an unloaded musket. The movie was shown in Sebring on
July 15, 1955.


When asked about his
coonskin cap: "Aw, I still got at
air cap somers; I jist don't know
where."
He always votes down-
town, but, "things ain't going
right," he declares. "It's a toss
up, but the Big Man upstairs
will work it out. Town is OK,
but too many people doing the
wrong things. Such as drugs,
and you know ... too much
business, no time to talk. That's
more important; life is more
important; if they ain't figured
that out by now, for them it's
too late.
"What I see hurts me. The

SCOSTA- SU


1r C S'w^v


city orta straghten it up ...
everybody get together and
straighten it up."
"I like most of the people
in Sebring, the friendly ones. I
go to the First Baptist Church
for about two years now ... they
got pretty girls there!
Brooker's parents are gone
now and so is the Florida
Theatre. The building is still-
intact and has been used as a
fabric shop, a print shop and
carpet store. The memories of
Saturday matinee's for children
linger on, especially that of July
15, 1955, and the Davy
Crockett movie.

Land use change approved but rezoning held on five parcels


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING On Tuesday
the county commission
approved nearly all of the 41
requests for land use and zoning
changes.
However, in the area of the
Sebring Parkway, State Road
17 and Arbuckle Creek Road,
the commission agreed to the
requested land use changes bfut
declined to rezone the proper-
ties until it could see a sector
plan that would add infrastruc-
ture and utilities.
The sector plan must outline
the addition of water, sewer,
roads, telecommunications,
recreation, commercial needs
and schools. Should the land be
developed, it could house the
same number of people as cur-
rently live in Sebring.
The plan would affect
approximately 50 property
owners. Those include 12


smaller property owners and
four large families with parcels
spread among several members.
It will also affect traffic on the
three main roads and smaller
roads such as Powerline Road,
Downing Road, Lakeview
Drive and Scenic Highway.
Davis properties
For 139.4 acres on the west
side of S.R. 17 across from the
intersection with Arbuckle
Creek Road, land use changed
from agriculture and low-densi-
ty residential to medium-densi-
ty and high-density residential.
The parcel stands is in an area
proposed for extension of the
Sebring Parkway.
For 26.89 acres on the
northwest, southwest and
southeast covers of S.R. 17 and
Downing Road, land use
changed from agriculture to
commercial.

Postman does ring twice 7
^*^ _. ,;- .~~~~~ ,- 1 1 -T i'i~ W "


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING The holidays
are a frantic time, add a family
wedding, and there really is
chaos.
Which is how Ray Franzek,
87, became confused the other
day.
He was running a series of
errands, prior to leaving for a
trip to North Carolina to attend
his grandson's wedding.
Having taken money out of
the bank, he had stopped by the
drop box outside the post office
on North Ridgewood Drive to
put some bills in the mail.
The bank envelope, contain-
ing $200 he had withdrawn for
the trip, got mixed up with the
envelopes containing bills, and
he put all of them into the box.
Of course, he didn't realize
what he'd done right away.
It wasn't until the next morn-


ing that he missed the money,
and figured out what had hap-
pened.
Down he rushed to the Lake
Jackson Branch of the post
office, behind Lakeshore Mall,
but the place was locked up
tight.
Walking around the building,
he found a bell in back, and
without much hope, he rang it.
He had to wait quite a while,
but someone did come out:
Debra Overstreet.
Overstreet took the time to
look into the situation, which
appeared to be hopeless.
The mail had already been
picked up from the drop box
and was on its way to Lakeland.
Given the large amount of
money, and the fact that it was
in a plain envelope, Overstreet
didn't think it would ever be
seen again.
But she took Franzek's name


and number anyway, and prom-
ised to look further into the
matter.
Franzek went to his grand-
son's wedding, without men-
tioning the incident to his fami-
ly, but the loss of the money
weighed heavily on his mind
during the four days he was
gone.
Immediately upon his return
he checked his answering
machine. No message.
Then, to his entire surprise,
two days later, he got a phone
call from Overstreet, telling
him his money had been dis-
covered and put in a drawer up
in Lakeland for safety. It was
being sent back to town to be
returned to him.
"It made my day," Franzek
said. "What a nice lady she was,
to go to the trouble she did, and
she refused any reward."

Hopes for the year

She's very natural and has a
good feel for the airplane,"
Sikkema said.
Because of Wack's age,
Sikkema said at first they took
it easy but as time went on they
stepped up the pace.
"The last year we have been
pushing a bit harder so she can
get her license," he said.
Getting one's pilot's license
involves quite a bit of both

stores will go, from merchan-
dise to store fixtures, even the
cash registers will be sold off.
Founded by farmer Evanda
Sweet in 1924, over the next 60
years Scotty's grew into an
extensive hardware building
and home improvement chain
that stretched throughout the
Southeast.
In 1988, the 164-store chain
was purchased by the GIB
Group a Belgian company.
At that time the chain boasted
6,000 workers
In 1998, Scotty's senior
management team purchased
the operation for $100 million.
By 2002, the chain had dropped
to just 1,100 employees in 69
different locations.
In 2003, the company report-
edly sold off its 52-acre ware-
house and headquarters in
Winter Haven to a Boca Raton
firm. That property later was
converted into a business park.
In more recent years,
Scotty's had scaled back their
stores from big box-type home
improvement stores to smaller
hardware stores. They took
their larger buildings and con-
verted them into indoor flea
markets like the Sebring Outlet
Mall.
As late as January, company
officials had hoped to convert
as many as 20 of their stores
into the so-called outlet malls.


knowledge and skill. Among
other things candidates must
log a minimum of 40 hours fly-
ing time, have the ability to per-
form certain maneuvers as well
as being able to pass an exam.
"When she meets the exam-
iner she'll take an exam and do
a flight check with him,"
Sikkema said.
He said seeing one of his stu-
dents get their wings is his
"biggest kick."
Karl said after she gets her
pilot license, Wack plans to
continue to move up.
"She's planning to go to fly-
ing school and work toward her
commercial license.
Sikkema said he has trained a
number of teens to fly and has
several currently under instruc-
tion. They must be at least 16


years old to.solo and 17 to get
their pilots license.
"I have students between 16-
73 years of age," he said.
Sikkema, who is a gold seal
pilot and the chief flight
instructor at Lockwood said
once Wack gets her license he
already has another aircraft for
her to try.
"We've been flying a Cessna
152 but once she gets her
license she can move up to a
172," he said.
Sikkema said recently they
added a Cessna 182 to the fleet
and will be adding three more
aircraft soon.
"We'll have to add another
flight instructor. I can't fly them
all at the same time," he said.

Well maintained

quality work

SEBRING Legacy Copy
Services is a surprising place,
made wonderful by the
machines that fill it, and the
excitement the owner, Alan
Decker, feels when he works
with them.
Some of these machines cost
as much as a house. Some of


them can do
miraculous
things, or work
a series of
complicated
steps.
Thanks to
the machines,
Decker can
turn out busi-
ness cards,
business forms,
newsletters,
brochures,
resumes, book-
marks and just
about anything
a quick printer
can turn out, at
very competi-
tive prices.

He didn't set out to get to
where he's at now. In fact, his
business took on a life of its
own, and has been leading him
for some time now.


He and his wife, Gale, had
started out with a simple idea.
Build a business based on the
transfer of legal medical
records from a paper file to a
digital one, and store them.
Legacy Copy turns binders,
stuffed with paper, filling feet
of shelves, into two or three
discs neatly taking up not even
inches.


Their service
was in demand,
their business
was good.
With suc-
cess, however,
came problems.
The Deckers
were so busy,
they soon out-

during out how his machines
could do it.
Slowly, he took on a wider
variety of challenges. He
learned the hard way -
through trial and error but
learned all the same, and now
can produce just about any
printed product a person or
organization might need.
From advertising brochures,
to regular newsletters, from
fancy color print on glossy
stock, to envelopes to business
cards to restaurant menus,
Decker and his miraculous
machines can do it all.
The key is planning. Not
only does he plan out the day,
he plans out each job, and has
test run after test run, to be
sure the final job fulfills the
order.
He also plans how to be the
most efficient, which is more
important than you might

staple is evenly placed.'

By organizing jobs so more

printed on a piece of paper,
Decker saves costs he can pass
on.
Decker also delights in
being able to meet with his
customers face to face. He
believes in the social connec-
tions of business, and his
office, designed to be out of

has often become a bustling

In fact, he has plans on

Starting a copy business
requires a large portion of cap-

Make it a New Year's resolution to check

Florida's abandoned property roster


Thousands of Floridians have lost
property waiting to be claimed, you
may be one of them.
Florida's Chief Financial Officer,
Tom Gallagher, recently announced
that the Florida Department of
Financial Services oversees 5 million
accounts worth more than $1 billion in
abandoned property. In his announce-
ment Gallagher urged all Floridians to CO
take the time to check Florida's roster ON
of abandoned property. That's because OUTI
the chances are good an account may
be in your name or someone you know. M
Here's a little history about Florida's Math
abandoned property program and how
to determine if the state has something
that belongs to you.
The concept of returning lost.property to the
public dates back to America's colonial days.
Florida's unclaimed property program began in
1961 and since then the state has processed more
than 600,000 claims and has returned hundreds of
millions of dollars.
In Florida, businesses are required by law to
turn over dormant accounts after an amount of
time prescribed by law has passed, typically five
years. If the asset is money the funds are deposit-
ed into the State School Fund, managed by the
Florida Department of Education. The interest
earned on the money is used to benefit Florida
public schools. However, the original reported
dollar amount is always available and can be
claimed by the rightful owner. Common exam-
ples of unclaimed property include utility deposit
refunds, unclaimed paychecks, insurance checks
and gift certificates.
Property is usually unclaimed because people
move without giving the postmaster a forwarding
address. Other common reasons are the death of
a grandparent or parent who has put money away
and failed to tell family members about the
account or location of their safe deposit box.
Tangible assets like jewelry, antiques or col-
lectibles found in safe deposit boxes, may be sold
off in a public auction. These auctions are held in
different parts of the state throughout the year. If

you are interested in attending an auc-
tion contact DFS about upcoming
events. DFS publishes a catalog of
items up for auction before the auction
so you can decide if you want to
attend. There is a small fee for the cat-
alog to cover the cost of printing, ship-
ping and handling.
If an asset is sold in an auction the
proceeds from the auction are set aside
as new unclaimed assets in the name of
the rightful owner. The state periodi-
cally publishes the names of missing
owners of abandoned property.
Unfortunately, many people don't see
the abandoned property announce-
ments and the contents of the DFS


vault in Tallahassee grows and grows.
You should also know that there are private
research firms and investigators who specialize
in locating abandoned property. They charge a
fee for this service, usually a percentage of the
value of the abandoned property. If someone
offers to locate abandoned property for you, or
say they have located abandoned property in your
name, consider calling DFS to see if the state has
property in your name. DFS has a toll free num-
ber, 1-88-VALUABLE.You can check on-line by
visiting www.dbf.state.fl.us.
Filing a claim on the property is easy. Of
course, you must prove you are the rightful
owner or heir to the asset. DFS will send you a
claim form and instructions. After providing evi-
dence that you are the rightful owner, the proper-
ty is returned to you. The process takes about 30
days.
Finally, if you don't.find property in your
name the first time you check, don't give up. You
never know when an abandoned asset will be
reported. Next time you check you may receive a
pleasant surprise.

the Consumer Outreach and Education program

Experts say electronic stability is a 'must have' safety feature


.According to a Nov. 15 New
York Times article, studies have
demonstrated that 'electronic
stability programs are saving
lives, in some cases reducing
the risk of death by over 65 per-
cent.
The Chrysler Group is com-
mitted to providing the essential
features and offers ..,its
- ElecironiL Stability Program,
making it available currently on
Jeep Grand Cherokee, Dodge
Magnum and Chrysler 300
series sedans with plans to
make it standard equipment on
more than 750,000 sport utility
vehicles in 2006.
"Our customers in Avon Park


are always concerned with safe-
ty," said Stanley Wells, manag-
er of Wells Motor Company.
"Adding ESP to all our SUVs is
another sign that Chrysler is
committed to offering the safest
vehicles on the road."
A study by the Insurance
Institute for Highway Safety
found that electronic stability
programs which help drivers
regain control of a swerving
vehicle by applying brakes at
one or two wheels reduced
fatal single-vehicle crash risk
by 56 percent. About half of the
28,000 fatal car crashes that
occur each year involve a single
vehicle, according to


ConsumerAffairs.com.
Electronic Stability Programs
provide the greatest benefit in
critical driving situations such
as turns and are especially valu-
able when driving on mixed
surface conditions such as
patchy snow, ice or gravel.
Chrysler Group's ESP is con-
sidered an "active" safety tech-
nology because it prevents
crashes, as opposed to air bags
and seat belts which are passive
technologies that aim to reduce
injuries once a crash has
occurred.
"For most drivers ESP isn't
likely to activate frequently. It
won't prevent most of the fend-


er-bender crashes that occur so
often in stop-and-go traffic,"
said Sarah Ferguson, senior
vice president for research at
the Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety. "ESP is
designed to help a driver in the
relatively rare event of loss of


control at high speed or on a
slippery road."
ESP enhances Chrysler's use
of rear wheel drive and all-
wheel drive on models such as
the Chrysler 300, Motor Trend's
Car of the Year.
In normal conditions, rear


wheel drive handles better than
front wheel drive," Hinskey
said. "ESP helps eliminate the
concerns about rear wheel drive
in inclement weather."

tact Lee Ann Hinskey of Wells
Motor Company at 453-6644.

Plenty to consider when planning citrus hybrids for the dooryard


Homeowners plan
citrus in the doorvard
to have a supply o0
fresh and tasty fruitl
There are main fac-
tors to consider. be fore
planting because the
challenges of growing
citrus hybrids are as
varied as the varieties. CITRU
Before planting please
do some research so GREG(
that you do not end up
with a tree that is a
poor producer or with fruit that
is of poor quality.
To better understand the
process of fruiting we will start
with the citrus flower and how it
develops into a fruit. The citrus
flower has both female and male
organs.
The female organ is called the
pistil, which is comprised of the
stigma, style and ovary. The pis-
til looks like a flower vase and
the top portion is the stigma
Pollen is deposited on the stigma
where it then germinates and
grows down the style (the neck
of the vase) and into the ovary at
the base. The resulting fertiliza-
tion forms seed and the numbers
of seed varies with variety. The
ovary in which the seeds develop
will grow into a fruit. The pistil is
encircled with stamens (the male
portion) which produce the
pollen. Citrus pollen is heavy and
sticky. It is not easily deposited
by wind and to a great extent
requires direct contact between
the stigma and stamen or insects
such as the bee to deposit the
pollen.
With some varieties of citrus
the sexual process is not com-
plete. The resulting production
of fruit is known as partheno-
carpy. Citrus which is strongly
parthenocarpic will set large
numbers' of seedless or nearly
seedless fruit. Weakly partheno-
carpic varieties such as the naval
are susceptible to environmental
stress and often drop a lot of fruit
when stressed. Other varieties
such as the Orlando tangelo aie
moderately parthenocarpic and
will set modest seedless crops
when planted without a pollina-
tor. The addition of a pollihiator
will dramatically increase the
crop while seediness also
.increases.
Certain horticultural practices
when applied to weak and mod-
erately parthenocarpic varieties
can increase fruit production and
quality. The most important
method of overcoming low fruit
production is the use of cross-
pollination. The selection of the
best possible pollenizer is essen--


G

J


tial to success. The
S ideal pollenizer
should have all or
most of the following
characteristics:
0 sexually cross-
compatible,
bloom period of
pollenizer must over-
SFACTS lap with the target,
Produce large
HAurr amounts of pollen,
S* produce large
crop of flowers every
year,
produce desirable fruit,
possess cold tolerance simi-
lar to the target tree, and
possess similar horticultur-
al needs as the target.
Other horticultural practices
used to enhance fruit set on mod-
erately to weak parthenocarpic
citrus cultivars are the use of gib-
berellic acid or trunk girdling.
Gibb acid sprayed at full bloom
or two-thirds petal fall has had
some success. Girdling is the
process of making a single knife
cut on the tree trunk, just below
the scaffold branches, through
the cambium layer (the bark and
underlying tissue). The cut
should be made during full
bloom. Girdling has been effec-
tive on Orlando. Minneola
(Honeybell), Robinson and
Nova.
Weak parthenocarpic fruit is
subject to drop when stressed.
Every attempt to minimize stress
should be made. Good fertility
and adequate moisture should be
maintained. Navel oranges are
very sensitive to water stress.
Choose a rootstock that is best
suited for the cultivar. Weak
parthenocarpic fruit do best on
less vigorous rootstocks such as
Cleopatra mandarin. Navel
grown on Cleopatra rootstock
will have less drying while on the
tree. Harvest the fruit as early as
possible to allow the tree to
recover for next year's crop.
The following is a list of possi-
ble hybrid dooryard varieties:
I Fallglo This hybrid is the
result of a cross between Bower
and Temple. Bower is a tanger-
ine and tangelo hybrid and
Temple is a tangerine and tange-
lo hybrid. The fruit is 5/8 tanger-
ine. t/4 orange, andl/8 grape-
fruit. It does not need a pollina-
tor. The fruit can reach 3 1/4
inches in diameter. The shape is
somewhat flattened. The rind is
smooth and easy to peel. The
color is a deep reddish orange at
maturity. The fruit matures in
the October-November period.
The juice has excellent color and
a pleasant flavor. This variety is


not a consistently good producer.
Only moderately cold hardy, a
trait shared with the Temple.
Resistant to scab fungus disease.
Quite susceptible to aphids and
suffers from twig and limb
dieback of an unknown origin.
The foliage is lighter in color as if
always showing a nitrogen defi-
ciency. Cleopatra mandarin is a
good rootstock choice.
Lee One of three hybrids
arising from a cross between
Clementine mandarin and
Orlando tangelo. The trees are
fairly cold hardy. Production is
best with cross-pollination.
Orlando, Page, and Temple do
well. The fruit is 3/4 tangerine
and 1/4 grapefruit. The fruit can
reach 3 inches in diameter and
the shape is somewhat flattened.
The fruit matures in the
November-December period.
Premature fruit drop is a prob-
lem in some seasons. The peel is
yellowish-orange, thin and tight,
therefore, not easy to peel. The
peel color does not peak until the
fruit is nearly over-matured. The
flesh is orange and flavorful with
a low acid level which is quite
appealing to many consumers.
Orlando Tangelo This
hybrid is a cross between- Dancy
tangerine and Duncan grape-
fruit. The tree is easily recog-
nized by the cup-shaped leaves.
Orlando is one of the more cold
tolerant varieties. Production is
poor without cross-pollination.
Temple, Sunburst, Osceola,
Robinson, Page, Lee, and Nova
are all good pollinators. Even
with a pollinator the use of Gibb
acid or girdling may be neces-


Violators of Green Fruit Law beware


Editor's note: The News-Sun
has been publishing news about
Highlands County since 1927 As
a treat for our readers, we have
gone through our archives and
pulled some stories from previous
issues that we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy this
Flash From the Past of Sept. 9,
1931.
Announcement by Nathan
Mayo, state commissioner of
agriculture, yesterday through
the Associated Press, states that
court action will be taken at
once against all violators of the
Florida green citrus fruit law.
Hesaid eight or 10 growers
with more than 80 groves in
scattered parts of the,state have
been found violating the law
forbidding shipment and sale of
artificially matured citrus and
that court action will be taken in
counties where the groves are
located. He also said special
legal assistance will be fu1r-


nished the county solicitors for
the prosecutions.
Those 80 or more groves are
being watched by state inspec-
tors and all fruit will be seized
if it is moved, he said.
The commissioner added that


guards will halt motor truck
movements of illegally matured
citrus. He said the road patrols
already are at work. When the
Regular inspection season ends,
he said, the highway inspection
will be continued by the state
livestock sanitary board.


"The majority of the early
crop moved in the past," Mayo
said, "was artificially matured.
This destroyed its good eating
qualities. The majority stan-
dards set by the recent legisla-
ture were not as high as the
department recommended, but
juice tests now required will
improve conditions greatly."
Last year at this time there
were 20 packing houses in
operation handling the early
crop, the commissioner said,
while this year there is none.
September 15, 1930, there were
48 packing plants working but
'this year there will be none, he
said. October 1, last year, there
were 112 in operation.
"Of course, the citrus crop is
better this year," he added, "but
the new law prohibiting artifi-
cial maturity is having its
effect, and it is a good effect for
the grower, the packer and the
public."


sary for good production.
Orlando requires higher rates of
nitrogen than sweet orange vari-
eties. Yellow leaves are frequent-
ly observed in fall and winter due
to nitrogen deficiency. The leaf
drop can be.very severe with a
nitrogen deficiency. Susceptible
to Alternaria brown spot fungal
disease. Cleopatra mandarin
rootstock has been widely used
because it is a less vigorous root-
stock. The fruit can reach 3 inch-
es in diameter with color and tex-
ture similar to that of an orange.
The rind is tight and not easily
peeled. The fruit is juicy and
sweet to very sweet but rather
insipid with low acidity. The fruit
matures in the November.
through January period.
Osceola One of three
hybrids arising from a cross
between Clementine mandarin
and Orlando tangelo. Osceola is
3/4 tangerine and 1/4 grapefruit.
Cross- pollination is essential for
good production. Orlando, Page,
Temple, and Lee are good poll-
enizer choices. The use of Gibb
acid may be required for good
production even with cross-polli-
nation. This variety does well on
many rootstocks but best on
those that impart fruit quality,
such"as Cleopatra mandarin.
Osceola is susceptible to the
xyloporosis virus disease. Make
sure to purchase a tree that has
been propagated with bud wood
that was certified to be virus
free. The tree is fairly cold-hardy
but the fruit is not. The leaves
and fruit are susceptible to scab
fungal disease. The fruit is
somewhat flattened and the sea-
son is in the October-November
period. The rind is a deep
orange or reddish-orange. The
rind is easy to peel but may
develop excessive puffiness.
The flesh is well colored with a
high sugar level, but sometimes
too acidic. The flavor is undistin-
guished and unlikely to appeal to
most palates.
S- Minneola Tangelo
(Honeybell) This hybrid is a
cross between Duncan grape-
fruit and Dancy tangerine. It is 1l
tangerine and Il grapefruit. The
trees are vigorous and fairly cold-
hardy. Minneola has been grown
on many rootstocks but
Cleopatra mandarin has been the
rootstock of choice. An even less
vigorous rootstock such as
Swingle Citrumelo could be used
if a smaller tree is desired. Fruit
quality will always be best on
slower-growing rootstocks.


Minneola is not strongly self-
fruitful and yields will be low
without cross-pollination.
Temple is the pollinator of choice
but Sunburst and Fallglo can be
used. Even with adequate polli-
nation the use of Gibb acid or
trunk girdling may be necessary
to set a decent crop. The foliage
and fruit are susceptible to the
Alternaria and scab fungal dis-
eases. If Alternaria becomes a
problem each new flush will
require a fungicide application.
The fruit matures in the
December-February period.
The shape is round, with a dis-
tinctive neck which gives it a
bell-like appearance. The peel at
peek maturity takes on a bright
reddish-orange color. The peel is
thin and easily removed. Mature
fruit feel slightly soft or puffy but
are still good to eat. The flesh
has a unique and delicious flavor.
A mixture of sweetness and tart-
ness which appeals to many
adults.
Nova A hybrid cross
between Clementine and
Orlando. The fruit averages 2
3/4 3 inches in diameter. Cross-
pollination is required to pro-
duce larger crops. Temple, Lee,
Nova, and Sunburst are good
choices. The number of seeds
per fruit can be as many as 30
when adequate pollination is pro-
vided. The use of Gibb acid or
tree trunk girdling at full bloom
will enhance fruit set. The use of
less vigorous rootstocks such as
Cleopatra mandarin is desired in
order to prevent fruit drying on
the tree. The harvest period is
from November to December.
The rind is slightly pebbly, leath-
ery, and easily removed. The
flesh is juicy and tender with a
fine sweet flavor.
Page This hybrid is a
cross between Minneola tangelo
and Clementine mandarin. Page
is 3/4 tangerine and 1/4 grape-
fruit. The tree is somewhat cold
hardy and requires cross- polli-
nation. Lee, Orlando, and
Temple are good choices for a
pollinator. This variety is great
for the dooryard due to the high
quality of the fruit and the long
harvest period from October
through February. The fruit and
foliage are susceptible to scab
fungal disease. When scab is a
problem each new flush should
be sprayed with copper. Not a
great deal is known about root-
stock selection. A vigorous root-
stock such as Carrizo would be a
good choice to promote larger

fruit size. The rind is medium-
thin, leathery, and peelable with
good color. The shape is round to
slightly oblong. Seeds will be few
without cross-pollination to as
many as 25 with a pollinator.
N Robinson A hybrid origi-
nating from a cross between
Clementine and Orlando.
Robinsoin is 3/4 tangerine and
1/4 grapefruit. The fruit shape
flattened and will average 2 n 3
inches in diameter. The fruit is
very tasty and easy to peel. Seed
numbers vary according to
cross-pollination. Production will
be low without a pollenizer such
as Temple, Orlando, Sunburst or
Lee. The application of Gibb acid
applied at full bloom may
increase fruit set and yields. The
fruit may be subject to splitting
when it reaches maturity. Heavy
crops can split the limbs, hand
thinning of the fruit will prevent
limb splitting. The harvest peri-
od is from October through
December. A less vigorous root-
stock such as Cleopatra man-
darin should be used. A more
vigorous rootstock such as
Carrizo will result in more fruit
drying out on the tree. The tree
is moderately cold hardy but the
zipper skin fruit is not. Limb twig
dieback can be a problem which
has been associated with the
Diplodia fungus but can be some-
what alleviated with copper
sprays. Robinson is susceptible
to the xyloporosis virus. When
selecting a tree make sure that it
has been certified to be free of
the virus. Foot rot on the trunk
can be a problem but is treatable
with a fungicide.
Sunburst A hybrid cross
between Robinson and Osceola.
The fruit is oblate, flattened at
the stem end and has a
depressed navel. The rind is thin,
smooth, and easily peeled.
Seed numbers will vary with the
amount of cross-pollination.
Good pollinators are Temple,
Orlando, Nova and Minneola.
The harvest period is from mid-
November through late
December. The trees are moder-
ately cold hardy and have a
resistance to both Alternaria and
scab. A less vigorous rootstock
such as Cleopatra mandarin
should be used to reduce the
amount of fruit drying on the
tree. The foliage is susceptible to
spider and rust mite feeding
which will blister the leaves. The
flavor of the fruit is not as sweet
as Robinson but still quite flavor-
ful.
Temple A tangerine-
orange hybrid, or tangor.
Temple has a high heat require-
ment and is more sensitive to
cold than the tangerine hybrids.
The fruit averages 2 3/4 to 3
inches in diameter. The rind is
thick, easy to peel, with a pebbly
surface. The flesh is juicy and
rich in flavor. 15 to 20 seeds per
fruit. The fruit matures in the
January through March period.
The fruit is susceptible to the
scab fungal disease. When scab
is a problem a fungicide spray
will be needed at least twice in
the spring. The tree has multiple
flushes which makes it a great
target for aphids. Less vigorous
rootstocks such as Cleopatra
mandarin will produce fruit of
better quality. Temple is used as
a pollinator with many of the cit-
rus hybrids.

More pet foster

homes needed
Editor:
I visited the [Humane
Society] Shelter yesterday to
lend a hand and take some pho-
tos for our Web site.
While there, I met a very spe-
cial young fellow; they call him
Duke. Duke is a 7-month-old set-
ter/mix. I am not sure why I was
gravitated towards this particu-
lar dog (some things just can't
be explained) but we met and
instantly fell in love.
Duke was packed with energy
and had a strong desire just to
get out of his enclosed kennel, if
just for a little while, to breathe
the fresh air, take a walk, a run,
and give kisses to anyone special
enough to recognize his poten-
tial. As I opened his kennel and
brought him out, the other dogs
began to bark and shout at him.
It was apparent Duke needed
some time away from all the
stresses that any institutional life
can bring. Some "one on one"
time, a break, whatever, if even
for just a little while.
So a long walk we. took
throughout the shelter grounds.
Later, a run, as I placed Duke
inside a large fenced in area at
the shelter. At first it seemed as
though Duke did not know what
to do with all that space because
he just stood still, looked about
and seemed somewhat con-
fused. Duke has never known
what freedom is like or ever had
enough room to run and play.
Shortly after his birth he was
brought to the shelter and has
lived in a kennel run for nearly
seven months.
I realized I needed to show
Duke what to do with all that
space. So I began to run. Duke
quickly caught on and was in
heaven, playing with toys he
found on the grounds, romping
about and seemingly skipping
with joy. Simply put, he decided
to fully experience his moment
of freedom, no matter how brief
it might be.
Later, a nice bath was in store
for Duke. He remained calm as
the water flowed over his body.
He seemed to smile as I rubbed
the shampoo into his fur. I
believe his favorite part was dry-
ing off as I laid a warm, fluffy
towel around him and patted
him dry.
Duke and I spent some more
quality time visiting with the
front office staff. All the while,
Duke remained very polite, alert
and extremely attentive.
Duke was a gentleman, in the
truest sense of the word, and


rightfully named, as he royally
greeted visitors that day and
interacted with shelter person-
nel. He never failed to extend
his paw for a hand shake and
gestures of goodwill to all that
crossed his.path that day.
This wonderful dog has been
a resident of the shelter for most
of his young life. It hurt me to
have to leave him as I put him
back into his kennel because
the shelter was beginning to
close for the day. If not for my
present living situation, I would
have taken Duke home with me,
if even for just a night, so he
might know what a real home
feels like. Instead, we had to say
goodbye.
As I returned Duke to the


Duke, a 7-month-old setter/mix,
is well behaved and would make
an excellent pet.

kennel area I could almost hear
him asking me "why? Why can't
I stay with you? I really don't
want to go back in there, but I
will if you say I must. Did I do
something wrong?" My heart
was broken.
Duke deserves so much
more; the love and security of
his very own home. A home with
a fenced yard and with plenty of
room to run and play in. A
chance to show the right family
just what having a "Man's Best
Friend" is all about. Someone to
love him and appreciate him and
the opportunity to love someone
back with heart-felt apprecia-
tion.
If you are thinking of
adding a pet to your family,
please take time to visit the shel-
ter and ask to see Duke. Take
him for a little walk; take time to
get to know him. You will find he
is very intelligent, gentle, and
loads of fun. Give this unassum-
ing and innocent spirit a chance
to show you what love, devotion
and tenderness is all about. He
has been waiting, so patiently,
for the right family to recognize


his potential as I did that day ...
are you the one?
As I reflect back on my time
spent with Duke that fateful day,
I can't help but think that Duke
served a very important purpose
in my life. I believe he is part of
God's infinite plan as every-
thing this. Duke taught me a
very important lesson, one that I
needed to be reminded of. He
showed me how to enjoy even
the smallest of life's many gifts.
Little things that I, like so many
of us, often take for granite.
I hope Duke has many more
opportunities to enjoy and expe-
rience the blessings entitled to
him. The opportunity to
remind a deserving family,
everyday, how to appreciate
each moment given us and the
beauty that surrounds us.
I was somewhat taken back
that day when I learned that the
shelter only has two families that
are involved in our foster home
program at this time.
Considering how large
Highlands County is and the
fact that The Humane Society of
Highlands County population
continues to overflow as new
arrivals come in each day, I
couldn't-help but wonder why.
The need for good, stable
homes, both permanent and fos-
ter, is vital.
I encourage the readers and
challenge each of you to take
time, drive out to the shelter, and
spend some quality time with
the staff and residents. Learn
first-hand all the lessons our ani-
mals have to share, and find out
how you too can get involved
with our community and its
homeless animals.

often as there is always some-
thing new to discover. The Web
address is www.humanesociety-
hc.org.
For contact information and
driving information, call your
Humane Society at 655-1522.
The shelter hours are Tuesday
through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4
p.m. Closed Sunday and

days.

When this story came to my
attention, it inspired some dis-
cussion in one of my news-
groups. The general agreement
was that the parents perhaps
should have lowered the boom
on their cussing sons a long time
ago but that this was a good
start.
If you agree, you are probably
a parent. If you don't and aren't a
parent ... well, someday, you will
have a child and you will have a
lot more sympathy, especially
after your child smears peanut
butter all over your kitchen cabi-
nets.

LAURA'S LOOK

Getting

nothing

James Dobson, head of the
pro family organization Focus on
the Family and author of numer-
ous books, once wrote a book he
called "Parenting Isn't For
Cowards." It was one of the few
times I bought a book because I
thought the title was so awe-
some.
The fact is that parenting is
not one of the easiest jobs on the
planet. People who have never
had kids of their own don't
understand this. You can spot
them in crowds when a child
suddenly starts having a
tantrum in the candy aisle or
goes totally limp when their fraz-
zled parent tries to drag them
out of the toy store. Those who
have had children will have
looks of sympathy or pity. Those
Swho haven't will have looks of
superiority, and might even be
heard to mutter "well, if that
were my child..."
Those couples who make dis-
paraging comments about par-
enting before having experi-
enced some rugrats of their own
often get theirs when they do
have kids. They are not quite so
critical of other parents after
their own little darling has
pulled some stunt such as hurl-
ing wet wads of bathroom tissue
on the ceiling of the bathroom.
But, in an attempt to get back
to my intended topic, let me
repeat Parenting can be diffi-
cult Kids have no instruction
manuals attached to them. They
can often outcry and outscream
their parents. My own kids
make no secret of the fact that
they can outrun me, which
means I have had to get sneakier
as they have gotten older and
required discipline. .
So I am sympathetic to the
apparent frustration of the father
that has only been identified as
magumbo-2000 in news reports.
His three sons aged 9, 11, and
15 were engaged in what I
would call "unacceptable behav-
ior.". This behavior included
fighting, cursing and what is del-
icately described as "obscene
gestures."
SThe father characterizes the
trio as normally good kids, but
the behavior had gotten bad
over the past few days. The
father admits that he and his
wife had been lax at times, but
he intended to deal with the situ-
ation.
He told the kids to straighten
up. They said they would, but
were back to the bad behavior
the next day. That did it. The
father sat the boys down and, in
his words, showed the boys
what they were not getting for
Christmas. He said he would be
auctioning the items off on
Ebay.
The oldest then made what in
my opinion was a fatal error. He
dared his dad to do just that.
There are some rules I have
learned in my 18 years of parent-
ing. One is to pick your battles.
Another is to not make a threat
you don't fully intend to carry
out if you have to, especially if
your child dares you to do it.
The father took a stand. The
gifts three Gameboys went
on the auction block. The
Christmas tree went down. And
the kids got nothing.
The games were sold to an
online casino for a substantial
sum, and the father promised to
donate the proceeds to charity.
The casino has promised to
donate the gifts to a needy fami-
ly.
This casino has bought other
items off of Ebay recently,
including a cane that was sold to
help quell a boy's fear that his
dead grandfather was haunting
his house and a grilled cheese
sandwich that was said to bear
the image of the Virgin Mary.












1 Whistleblowers save us, but need help

The arthritis drug
Vioxx is a killer. The GUEST
total number of victims
who have been killed Loui
or maimed since the
drug was approved five
years ago is staggering: 88,000
to 138,000. A conservative esti-
mate of the death rate among
the four million users of the
drug would equate to over nine
9/11 terrorist attacks. And for
every death, it is estimated that
there were at least three heart
attacks.
As the body count mounted,
all that the drug manufacturer
Merck and the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) did was
devise a mildfine print warn-
ing of increased risk of heart
attack and stroke. The market-
ing department of Merck mean-
while touted the benefits of the
drug for those with ulcers who
cannot safely digest aspirin,
ibuprofen, or Tylenol.
However, the vast majority of
users did not have any medical
problems digesting these safer
products.
What consumers of Vioxx
did not know about the drug
was killing them. They trusted
the FDA, an agency whose mis-
sion is to protect public health,
to place the health of the
American people above the bot-
tom line of pharmaceutical
companies. The FDA abused
this trust, and many perished as
a direct result.
SLuckily, in the bowels of the
FDA there was a diligent veter-
an researcher and scientist, Dr.
David Graham, whose meticu-
lous research outlined the
extent of this national disaster.
But rather than question Vioxx,
the FDA chose to greet Dr.
Graham's study with doubt,
apprehension, scorn, job
threats, and professional warn-
ings.


(
C
s


A deeply religious,
DOLUMN highly principled man,
Dr. Graham did what
Clark most of us hope we
would do in his posi-
tion: He blew the
whistle on the FDA and Merck.
In surprise testimony at FDA
oversight hearings before a
Senate committee in November,
he presented his evidence, out-
lined his failed efforts to sound
the alarm within his agency,
described the threats against
him by management, and raised
deep concerns about five other
common prescription drugs -
Accutane, Serevent, Bextra,
Crestor, and Meridia.
Dr. Graham's Senate testimo-
ny made the front pages of
every major newspaper in the
country. Although preferring
quiet research to public atten-
tion and acclaim, he has
become a towering figure of
courage and rectitude while
FDA management has received
widespread and scathing criti-
cism from leaders from all
walks of life. For example,
Republican Senator Charles
Grassley, who chaired the
Senate committee, and 22 other
members of Congress have
severely warned Graham's
superiors to halt its suspected
plot to transfer him away from
drug research.
The FDA has launched a
whisper campaign questioning
Dr. Graham's scientific meth-
ods, calling him a bully against
those who disagree with him,
suggesting that he has no sup-
port among other FDA scien-
tists, and insinuating that his
criticism of Accutane has more
to do with his deep religious
convictions than the drug's haz-
ards. These smear tactics are
proving as ineffective and
bankrupt as the agency's efforts
to protect public health.


Despite Graham's success,
whistleblowers remain largely
pariahs in one-party
Washington. The White House,
the House leadership, and the
Justice Department have joined
a political cabal to destroy all
vestiges of whistleblower pro-
tection for federal employees
and derail reform efforts to pro-
vide legal protection. The only
whistleblowers who Have a
chance to retain their jobs, sal-
vage their careers, and bring
attention to their concerns are
those whose revelations make
headlines. All others are in deep
trouble.
As the FDA scandal has esca-
lated, a new phenomenon
appears to be developing.
Forbes Magazine has selected
Df. Graham as its "Face of the
Year" for 2004. Respected jour-
nalists such as Aaron Brown
and Lou Dobbs of CNN have
lavishly praised Graham on the
air and provided heartfelt sup-
port. Magazine and newspaper
editorial writers have endorsed
whistleblower reforms.
Next to be heard from are
American citizens. If enough
citizens express their support
for federal employee whistle-
blower protection to their
Congressional representatives,
the current secrecy tide will
turn immediately. Citizens have
the right to know what could
kill them. They are not getting
that information from the
appointed leaders of federal
agencies. The least we can do
for whistleblowers, who pro-
vide this vital information, is to
guarantee their freedom to warn
us of danger.

tor of the Government
Accountability Project in

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
Jan. 2, 2000: The run to
the, state title game by
Sebring's boys basketball
team headed the list of the
News-Sun Highlands
County stories of the year. A
thrilling conclusion to the
48th 12 Hours of Sebring
and SHS football's turn-
around to a playoff berth
were among other top sto-
ries.

15 Years Ago
Jan. 2, 1990: Despite a
game-high 26 points from
Ladarian Graham, Sebring
(9-1) held off visiting Fort
Meade 78-68. Walter Ellis,
with 18 points, led the
charge for the Blue Streaks,
who had four players score
at least 15.

25 Years Ago
Jan. 2, 1980: Avon Park
tailback Carl Wingate was
named 1979 athlete of the
year by The Avon Park Sun
for his season total of 1,590
rushing yards. Wingate also
averaged 6.6 yards a carry
and failed to rush for 100
yards only twice in 10
games.

First-ever statsoftball swimming



crowns top sports stories of year


By SCOT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
t would have been easy to pick the
three hurricanes that blew through
Highlands County, leaving the
local sports scene in as big a mess
as everything else, as the top local
sports story of 2004.
True, it was the first time that three
hurricanes passed over the county in
one season, and it affected just about
every one in the county who plays.any
sport in one way or another. But there
were a few other firsts this year that left
much better memories, so deciding to
bump the hurricanes down the list a
notch or two wasn't the hard part.
No, the hard part was deciding which
of those first-ever accomplishments
should go first on the list of the year's
top stories.
So in a compromise (also known as
wimping out), the story selected as the
top one of the year for 2004 is actually
two stories the Sebring Dixie Belles
winning the county's first fast-pitch
softball state championship and the
Sebring boys 200-yard medley relay
team becoming the first to win a state
swimming championship.


Both accomplishments are worthy of
being honored. The Belles (ages 13-15)
had to rally back from a devastating
loss to beat Hernando twice in order to
win their state championship in
Wildwood in July, while the Blue
Streaks' fearsome foursome of Tyler
Caton, Jon Parsons, Quinlan Wolfe and
Dylan McGovern had to make it
through the district and, for the first
time, regional meets as well as the state
preliminaries and finals without making
one mistake.
The Belles' story started out with
winning the District 6 crown at Max
Long Recreational Complex June 26,
knocking off defending state champ
Okeechobee twice in the process to
earn a trip to the state tournament in
Wildwood.
Sebring started off as hot as the
weather at state, blasting Clewiston 12-
0 in six innings in the first round and
then crushing Chipley 10-0 in five
innings in the second round, getting a
combined no-hitter from pitchers
Julianne Lind and Katlin Hamlin.
The third round, however, wasn't
nearly as fun. Walks and errors got
Sebring into a 7-0 hole in the first


inning against Hernando on the way to
an 11-5 loss that put the Belles one loss
away from elimination.
Like the Boston Red Sox proved a
few- months later, that's when good
teams are at their best. Sebring respond-
ed to the pressure with an 11-0 rout of
Belleview, going up 8-0 in the second
inning and never looking back.
Then came the rematch against
Hernando, with. Sebring needing two
wins to take the title. The first game
was a 2-1 thriller, with Kendall Carson,
Lind and Chelsea Vickers teaming up
on the mound to keep Hernando in
check while Carson drove Chastity
Godfrey.for the first run with a single in
the third and Kristin Salinder scoring
on an error after doubling to lead off
the fifth for a 2-0 Sebring lead.
Hernando got a run in the sixth, but a
double play by Salinder ended the
inning with Sebring still ahead and
Vickers retired the final two batters
with a runner in scoring position to seal
the win.
The title game 24 hours later was
almost anticlimactic. Sebring took an
early 2-0 lead and never trailed, led by
Carson, who threw a complete-game


gem, drove in two runs and scored two
runs as Sebring rolled to a 6-2 victory
and the championship, earning a trip to
the World Series in Tlenn. 'ce.
"It would have been real i;.]\ for
them to say there's no way we can
come back and beat them twice, but
they just sucked it up and gof it done."
Sebring coach Ned Hancock said after
the game.
NE.
From the start of the swimming sea-
son in late August, it was obvious that
Sebring's 200 yard medley relay team
was going to be a force in pools around
the state. With Calon in the backstroke,
Parsons in the breaststroke. \\, I \, in the
butterfly and McGovern the anchor in
the freestyle leg,'the quartet racked up
win after win in the regular season
meets, and even severe hurricane dam-
age to their home pool that forced them
to practice in Lake Placid for several
weeks didn't slow them down.
They earned a top seed for the dis-
trict meet, which they won to earn a
No. 2 seed for the regional meet. In pre-
vious years, the district win would have

Continued from 1B
been enough to send Sebring to
state, but the regional level was
added for this season. It proved
to be no problem, however, as
the foursome won the regional
with a school record time of
1:43.21, the top time in the
state.
In the preliminaries of the
state meet in Gainesville, the
quartet placed third in 1:43.56,
just .41 seconds behind Fort
Walton Beach.
They were simply saving
their best for last. In fact, the
Streaks hadn't even shaved the
hair off their legs for the pre-
lims.
In the finals, Sebring was
.52 seconds out of the lead
when Parsons hit the water for
the breaststroke, and the senior
made up the time and then
some, giving the Streaks the
lead when Wolfe took over.
Fort Walton Beach's Ciro
Sauia, who would later win the
50 freestyle title, made up the
difference, however, and the
race was a dead heat at 1:20.17
when McGovern and Jason
Bryant of Fort Walton left the
block for their 50-yard
freestyle sprint to the title.
Bryant started strong, but
McGovern had the lead at the
turn, and held on the final leg
to touch the wall .28 ahead of
Bryant for the championship.
"I saw him go in the water
before me and I was like, 'No,
you're not touching the touch
pad before me,'" McGovern
said.
Parsons would go on to take
Second in the 100 breaststroke,
McGovern placed fourth in the
50 freestyle and the same four-
some took fifth in the 200
freestyle relay later in the
meet.
Here's a look at some of the
other top stories of the past
year:
Hurricanes deliver
blow to facilities
f there's one sports-related
lesson that the county
learned from the trio of hur-
ricanes that battered the state in
August and September, it's that
scoreboards are no match for
Mother Nature at her meanest.
Hurricane Charley blew
through on Aug. 13, knocking
down the Avon Park Red
Devils' football and baseball
scoreboards, the football score-
board at Firemen's Field in
Sebring and tearing up the
scoreboard and home dugout at
South Florida Community
College in addition to a lot of
other damage.
Hurricane Jeanhe six weeks
later on Sept. 25-26 finished
the job, taking out the baseball
scoreboard in Sebring and the
football scoreboard in Lake
Placid. Jeanne also did a num-
ber on the batting cage at Max
Long Recreational Complex in
Sebring, depositing most of it
across the street.
In between was Hurricane
Frances, which mainly hurt
area golf courses more than
anything else, dumping tons of
rain on the already wet turf.
The other two storms did their
damage to local links, too, par-
ticularly in downed trees.
Harder Hall and the Sebring
Municipal Course were the
hardest hit, with severe damage
to cart sheds at both courses
from Charley and Jeanne.
Harder Hall lost over 100 trees
to Charley alone.
Sports schedules also fell
victim to the storms, with
every team in the county -
from football to recreational
softball having games
wiped out.
The effects were still being
felt in November when the
Hardee Wildcats, whose foot-
ball stadium was condemned
after getting slammed by
Charley, played their first-
round playoff game at
Firemen's Field in Sebring.
: Sebring Dixie Boys


win state title with
last-day marathon
ot to be outdone by
their female counter-
parts, the Sebring Dixie
Boys 14-year olds duplicated
,' the state title feat just one week
-later by winning two games in
one day to capture the champi-
onship in Grand Ridge.
The tourney started off on a
bad note for Sebring, as
Southport's Reed Wynn came
out on top of Justin Richard in
a 2-1 pitchers' duel. The quiet
bats proved to be a fluke, how-

ed into Halls of Fame this past year.


ever, as Sebring rebounded in
the next round with a 7-2 win
over East Lakeland, then
whipped Capital Park 8-0 the
next day to set up a rematch
with Southport.
Sebring rallied twice to send
the game into extra innings tied
at 4-4, and two runs in the top
of the eighth proved to be just
enough as Richard closed out
the game in relief with Sebring
up 6-5 in a game that was a
glimpse of things to come.
With three one-loss teams
left, Southport drew the bye
into the final,-pitting Sebring
against Spring Hill in the semi-
finals. Sebring racked up 11
hits and got good pitching from
Cory Ritter, James Chavis and
Tony Vazquez to take a 4-1
win, setting up the rubber
match with Southport.
Ryan McClelland, who had
caught all seven innings of the
Spring Hill game and had been
battling food poisoning, took
the mound against Southport
after a 30-minute break and
threw eight innings of solid
pitches as Sebring exploded for
four runs in the top of the first
extra inning to break a 3-3 tie
and.take a 7-3 victory for the
championship.
SFCC baseball makes
monster turnaround
, t may have been the great-
est one-year turnaround in
the history of Highlands
County sports.
The South Florida
Community College Panthers
had a horrendous season in
2003, managing to win just
eight games all spring. It took
the coach Rick Hitt's 2004
team just 10 games to match
that win total as the Panthers
opened the season 15-3 to earn
the No. 1 ranking in the state
in the first poll of the season
on Feb. 24.
Led by state Pitcher of the
Year Jesse Litsch, who went 9-
1 with a 2.11 ERA,. and a host
of other heroes, the Panthers
stayed hot the rest of the sea-
son,.finishing 36-14-1 to earn a
spot in a best-of-three series
against Miami-Dade in late
April for a spot in the state
tournament.
A dramatic rally in the first
game gave the Panthers a 9-7
win at home, and Dusty
McGee's complete-game five-
hitter the next day in Miami
lifted SFCC to a 5-3 win and
the spot at state.
The trip to state was a short
one as SFCC came up short in
the first round, rallying from a
8-1 deficit after seven innings
before falling, 8-7, then getting
shut out by Tallahassee in the
second round, but just getting
there made the 2004 Panthers
one of the best stories of the
year.
Streak baseball
makes playoff run
T he Panthers weren't the*
only baseball team to
make a playoff run in
2004. The Sebring Blue
Streaks also put together a
surge in the postseason, com-
ing within one win of a trip to
the state final four in Tampa.
The Streaks were strong all
season long, entering the
District 14-4A tourney with a
20-6 record. A 6-1 win over
Lemon Bay in the semifinals
clinched a playoff spot and
Dusty Campbell's first-inning
grand slam in the champi-
onship game was enough for
pitchers Will Pyle and Chaz
Abeln in a 6-2 win over
Riverdale in the finals.
Sebring opened the playoffs


at home on May 11 against
Palmetto. Bruce Beumel and
Wisley Correa drove in a run
each and Beumel teamed up
with Abeln'to throw a shutout
as the Streaks won, 2-0, for
Sebring's first playoff victory
in four years.
The win earned Sebring its
first state ranking of the sea-
son, at No. 7, and the Streaks
lived up to the billing against
Fort Lauderdale in the second
round and got a masterful relief.
appearance from Abeln for a 4-
2 win. Abeln came into the
game with the bases loaded *
and one out in the first inning,
and got out of the jam with just
one run scored. The freshman
then pitched the rest of the way
as Sebring rallied after a solo
homer from Kiko Vazquez tied
the game in the bottom of the
first, and catcher Eric Handley
picked off a runner at first base
for the final out to end a poten-
tial last-inning rally by the
Flying L's.
A first trip to the final four
since 1966 wasn't to be, how-
ever, as three costly errors
allowed Wellington to rally
from a 2-0 deficit for a 3-2 win
in the region title game in Palm
Beach on May 18.
Rapp, Stapleford
enter Halls of Fame
Tt's rare when one local
coach is honored by getting
into the Hall of Fame.
Sebring had two coaches who
received that distinction in
2004.
Gary Rapp was first, joining
the Florida Athletic Coaches
Association Hall of Fame in
January. Rapp coached Sebring
baseball for 10 years in the
1970s, going 171-81 and also
coached Sebring's JV football
to back-to-back perfect seasons
in 2002-03 and has been a key
figure in organizing the annual
FACA All-Star baseball game
at Firemen's Field.
In March, it was announced
that retiring Blue Streak
wrestling coach Wayne
Stapleford was being inducted
into the National Wrestling
Hall of Fame after a stellar
career. Stapleford had already -*
been named to the Wisconsin
Wrestling Hall of Fame before
moving to Sebring in 1985.
With the Streaks, he was 130-
67-2 and had a 322-126-6
overall record in both states,
coaching seven All-Americans,
13 individual state champs and
around 100 regional champs.
Stapleford was inducted into
the Hall of Fame in August.
Another local coach was
honored late in the year when
Sebring baseball coach Hoppy
Rewis received a prestigious
lifetime membership in the
FACA in December.
Audi wins 5th straight
12 Hours of Sebring
t's beginning to sound like
a broken record: Audi wins
the 12 Hours of Sebring.
For the fifth straight year, an
Audi R8 led the way to the
checkered' flag in America's
top endurance race. The only
thing that changed was which
Audi got the win. After four
straight wins by Team Joest
Audis, the 52nd running of the
Race on March 20 was won by
the Team Veloqx car driven by
Pierre Kaffer, Frank Biela and
Allan McNish.
Their No. 28 machine was
dominant in the second half of
the Race, taking the lead in
Hour 5 and never looking
back, quickly pulling away to a
four-lap lead and expanding
that cushion to six laps over


the fan favorite No. 38 Audi,
which rallied from an accident
early in the day to take second
place.
The win put Biela in a select
group of drivers who have won
three titles at both the LeMans
24 Hours and the 12 Hours of
Sebring.
Sebring's Germaine
takes 2nd at state
The dream of a state
wrestling title almost
ended very early for
Sebring's Blake Germaine.
In the first round of the state
finals in Lakeland on Feb. 26,
the junior 140-pounder came
out flat against David Deaton
of Panama City-Bay, falling
behind 6-2 in the first period
and coming within a hair of
getting pinned in the process.
Germaine survived the scare,
however, getting three take-
downs in the final 45 seconds
for a 15-11 win. He then turned
it up a notch the next day,
wrestling two of his best
matches, winning 9-2 in the
quarterfinal and then rallying
from 1-0 down in the final
period to beat Victor Porter of
Crawfordville-Wakulla in the
semifinals.
While Germaine may have


been hot in winning his half of
the bracket, Paul Catnnella of
Hollywood-Chaminade was
like a nuclear bomb in his side
of the meet, winning his three
matches 15-3, 16-1 and 18-5
on the way to a match against
Germaine in the final.
Cannella didn't cool off
either, taking a 16-6 victory in
the title bout and preventing
Germaine (45-4) from winning
Sebring's first state title since
1997.
Lady Streak golfers go
to 6th straight state
Just like Audi in the 12
Hours, the Sebring Lady
Blue Streak golf team has
been a juggernaut for the past
several years, and 2004 was no
different.
Coach Nancy Price's girls
won their sixth straight district
title on Oct. 19, joined in victo-
ry lane by the boys, who won
their fifth straight.
While the boys failed to
make it out of the regional, the
girls were as strong as ever,
winning the regional title a
week later with a 356 at
Westchase in Tampa, a course
the Streaks had never even
seen until that day but still
played well enough for a 14-.


stroke win and a sixth consecu-
tive trip to the state finals,
where they ended up 10th.
Lake Placid football
snaps losing streak
Sone-win football season
usually isn't big news,
but for the Lake Placid
Green Dragons, that one win
was hopefully the start of
something good.
First-year coach Shaw
Maddox got the Dragons off to
a good start with a 6-0 win
over Clearwater Central
Catholic in the preseason kick-
off classic game the
Dragons' first win of any kind
since Sept. 13, 2002 but
that win didn't count.
A tough schedule loaded
with private school powers
kept the Dragons out of the
win column for most of the
season, but that all changed on
Oct. 22 when the Moore Haven
Terriers came to town.
The Dragons didn't waste
any time overpowering the
Terriers, who were the team
that lost to Lake Placid on that
night in 2002, scoring on their
first possession and taking a
17-7 halftime lead on the way
to a 37-7 win, snapping a 24-
game losing streak.

Crawdad's hero starts big ruckus


Did you hear about the little
girl in Anchorage, Alaska, who
caused a near panic among
officials and biologists in our
northernmost state? A crawfish
was recently found in a Kenai
area stream and biologists were
so concerned they rushed to
find the origin of the non-
native crustacean, which they
feared might harm the area's
ecosystem.
Officials later learned that a
lady making the family dinner
was the initial cause of all the
uproar. It seems that her little
girl got upset while watching
her mother cooking up a Cajun
meal containing crawfish.
The tender-hearted girl man-
aged to rescue four of the
crawfish before they were
stewed in a pot of gumbo. She
released them into a nearby
stream. So far officials know
nothing of the fate or where-
abouts of the three crawfish
still missing.
Just goes to prove that even
the best of intentions often go
astray.
On another note, one of
Florida's best crappie lakes is
preparing to undergo a several
million dollar clean up. Lake
Trafford, located 30 miles
southwest of Ft. Myers, covers
1,500 acres. The lake was
recently named to Florida's
Top 10 List of crappie produc-
ing lakes.
A six-month survey by state
biologists found anglers caught
more than 66,000 crappies and
a catch rate of. 2.5 per hour in
Lake Trafford. Much like other
speck lakes in Florida, the best
times for filling a stringer with

these beauties is during the late
fall and through the winter
months.
Huge dredges are being set
up now near the shoreline of
the lake. Most of the lake bot-
tom will be dredged. Silt has
washed into the lake by the
rains and the bottom is inun-
dated by the muck and dredg-
ing the muck will result in a
clean bottom, affording a much
better nesting area for bass and
crappies while greatly improv-
ing the quality of the water.
While the $30 million clean
up may disturb some of the
hydrilla, cattails and spatter-
dock that provide good habitat
for the panfish, what remains
will be sufficient for the sur-
vival of the crappies and other
fish. I'm sure local anglers will
be pleased.
i..
I recently read an article in
an outdoor magazine about
pesticides that still remain a
threat to the recovery of our
nation's endangered plants and
animals. The Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) was
created in 1970 and the
Endangered Species Act was


passed three years later. Now,
30 years later, pesticides still
pose much the same threats as
then.
Still, the EPA has no idea of
how many of the more than
700 pesticides it has registered
pose a hazard to the 1,260
species listed as threatened or
endangered. The agency admits
it has not even tackled a back-
log of pesticides that they
know are potentially harmful
and that these chemicals
remain in use pending further
evaluation. Ha!
Pesticides on the U.S. mar-
ket today include insecticides,
rodenticides, herbicides, fungi-
cides and disinfectants.
Considered beneficial, even
essential, under some circum-
stances, they protect important
food crops and their use
extends far beyond agriculture
to nearly every home, business,
school, hospital, park and road-
side.
Virtually all surface waters
in the country contain
detectable levels of one or
more pesticides. Protecting
endangered species is getting
much more complex.
While performing an autop-
sy on a bald eagle that showed
signs of carbofuran poisoning,
a veterinary pathologist with
the National Fish and Wildlife
Forensics Lab in Ashland,
Oregon said, "While a dead
eagle dropping in a barnyard.is
hard to miss, most pesticide
victims simply disappear."
Like the old saying, "Out of
sight, out of mind."

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Expectations
Like a new born baby,
2005 has just begun to open
its eyes to the dawning of the
days ahead. No longer is it a
far distant promise of "next"
year. The holiday celebra-
tions of 2004 are over and
the new year has arrived,
brimming with possibilities.
Into this tenuous margin
of the year, we've awakened
with hopes and expectations
of what 2005 may hold. We
plan, take bold steps and
dare to dream.
As I recall past end-of-year
celebrations, traditional fami-
ly get-togethers with accom-
panying feasts were the high-
light. Even when I married
and relocated, we balanced
family gatherings and dis-
tance as best we could. But,
after becoming a single mom
many years ago, I moved
nearer to famiily and really
entered into those traditional
family times.
New Year's Eve at my
Aunt and Uncle's home was
a little different than the
other gatherings as it meant
staying up till midnight to
bring in the new year. My
Dad would say on that occa-
sion, maybe this will be your
year.
I knew what he meant. He
was praying that the Lord
would send a fine Christian
husband for me and dad for
my son. So as the clock
ticked 12, he presented his
hope for me with those
words.
I, too, prayed for that pro-
vision should it be God's will.
However, I had to learn not
to make that hope my focus.
I didn't stop praying for my
heart's desire. But, as a
friend had advised, i became
careful to consciously let my
expectations be in God so I
wouldn't be disappointed.
"My soul, wait silently for
God alone. For my expecta-
tion is from Him." (Psalm 62:
5, NKJV)
At the dawning of 1981,
Dad couldn't have known
that the hopes he harbored
for this year to be my year
would actually be fulfilled.
However, it came only after
yielding my expectations to
God's purpose and will.
As much as I longed for
God to answer in the affirma-
tive, deep in my heart I had
reached the place where I
wanted his will above my
own. I knew I didn't want
marriage for the sake of
being married. I longed for a
relationship in which my
husband and I would serve
the Lord together and reflect
marriage and family as God
had designed it to be.
It was sometime in April
of 1981 that I lay my expecta-
tions at his feet and yielded
my singleness to him. I was
set free and knew the securi-
ty of resting in him.
In May, on the Memorial
Day weekend, my 8-year-old
son and I went biking with
some acquaintances from a
Christian singles group. That
day Ken came into our lives.
We will be married 23 years
in February.
As we each make our
plans for the year, let's
remember to place them
, before the feet of the One
who sustains life and gives it
meaning and purpose. Then
we won't suffer unnecessary
disappointment because our
expectations will be properly
placed. Selah.

share hopes



and plans



for 2005


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun correspondent
As with the beginning of
every new year, people are
entering 2005 with plans for
positive change in their person-
al lives and fresh hopes for
themselves and others.
Prominent members of the
local community share their
resolutions, as well as their
hopes and dreams for the com-
ing year.
Justine Devlin, co-owner of
Avanti Company in Avon Park
1- "My New
Year's resolu-
tion is to be
More positive,
patient, and
present to my
family and
DEVLN friends. My
ELIN hope for 2005
is that all those who suffered
with the hurricanes will be
helped to get back to a normal
life."
Cheryl Gelinas, administra-
tive assistant at the Highlands
County
Extension ,
Service "My
New Year's
resolution is to
spend more
time with fam-
ily and more
time working
out. For 2005, I hope that
everyone in the community has
a safe and wonderful year."
Sarah Beth Hopton, public
information officer for
Highlands
County "I
guess my New
Year's resolu-
tion would be





spend more time doing things
for me; like camping, hiking,
and other things like that. My
hopes for the new year are that
we can figure out a way to pull
our troops out of Iraq and not
go to war with some of their
neighboring countries. Also,

we're working on
relaunching our Web site. It is
going to be very interactive
and very cool; and I hope that
it will be up and running by
spring or summer and that peo-
.ple .iUll ake adv vantage of it.
use it. and appreciate it."
Bill Jarrett, owner of Bill
Jarrett Ford in Avon Park -
S "I've never
even thought
of a New
Year's resolu-
tion in my life-
time. I'm
proud of those
JARRETT who can make
them and keep
them and I wish them the best;
but I've never gone down that
road. My hope for the new
year is that we will all work
together to resolve our indiffer-
ences or our obstacles as. much
as we did this past summer. It
was quite refreshing to see the
way we all worked together
and helped our neighbors to
resolve the various crises that
were thrown our way by the
hurricanes, to see people think
of someone besides themselves
first. I hope to see that contin-
ue."
Carl Gillilan, financial con-
sultant in Sebring, "My wife


.-


and I are expecting our first
child in February; so my first
New Year's resolution is to
become the
best dad I can
be in 2005.
Others ,are to
help l'amilies
within our
community ,
and to develop
GILLILAN a winning
financial edge
for my clients by teaching
them how to get their hard
earned money to start working
for them. My hope for the new
year is that there will be no
more hurricanes."
Dr. Paula Thaqi, director of
the Highlands County Health
Department in
Sebring "My
New Year's
resolution is
not too origi-
nal; it is to
exercise more
THAQI and eat health-
ier. My hopes
for the new year for the county
are to have a year without hur-
ricanes, disease outbreaks, or
flu shot shortages, and that the
health of our county's residents
continues to improve."
Chet Brojek Jr., retired


educator who
resides in
Sebring "My
New Year's
resolution is to
qualify for the
Boston
Marathon in BROJEK
April (12th
time if I make it.) Trying
to'do all the training is'
the hard part. To have
the idea is good but
doing the work is
what is hard. My
hope for 2005 is
that all our
men and
women serving
t in Iraq will
return safely to
their families


sometime this
year. And good
luck to the Red
Devils!"
Mort
Jackson Jr.,
athletic direc-
tor and head
baseball
coach for
Avon Park
High School

lution for the
new year is
to be a better
person every
day. In terms
of my hopes
for the new
year, of course
SI always hope
; to win a state
Championship
*" in baseball. But
that just pales


in comparison
to all the natu-
ral disasters
and things
going on in the
world. My
number one
hope is for the
safety and JACKSON
well-being of
people everywhere."
Donna Howerton, member
of the School Board of
Highlands
County "It is
my goal this
year to better
organize my
time; to allow
me to stay
focused on the
solutions, note lenit
the problems. I will remain
optimistic wi t he belief that
out of challenges opportunities
arise. In reaching my goal it
will allow me to include things
I have become lenient on:
physical health, relaxation and
spending time with my family.
Finally I wish the people of
Highlands County joy, peace,
love and happiness in the com-
ing new year."
Susan Benton, Highlands
County Sheriff "I'm sitting
here in Florida Hospital right


NEWS-SUN + SEBRING, FLA.

now in a rock-
ing chair rock-
ing my brand
new baby
granddaughter,
Paige Benton.
She was born
last night five BENTON
weeks early
and everyone is doing just
great. As I sit here with her in
my arms, my hope for the new
year would be that all the chil-
dren in our community are in
situations where they are loved
and nurtured as they grow. My
resolution for 2005 is to work
hard every day to maintain the
trust that the community has in
the office of sheriff."
Carolyn Phyphers, owner
of Happiness Farms in Lake
Placid- "My
hope for the
new year is
that it will be
better and
there won't be
four hurri-
canes. I also
hope for peace, PHYPHERS
and for healthy
grandchildren. I usually don't
make too many New Year's
resolutions because you usual-
ly break them."
Peter Anderson, park man-
ager for Highlands Hammock
State Park in
Sebring "I've
never made
New Year's
resolutions. I
don't know
why; perhaps
because they
are hard to ANDERSON
keep. But if
you want to change I don't
think you should have to have
one certain day set aside for
that. Why not just do it when
you see the need? But I would
like to lose some weight and
get in better shape for me.
Also, I'd like to work to catch
up from the hurricanes and get
the park in better shape as
well. I'm glad to'have hadmy
family together for
Thanksgiving and Christmas;
we were all together and it was
great. For the new year, I hope
for my family to all be healthy
and prosperous in their own
ways. I don't have much; but
am thankful for whatever I
have."
David Greenslade, execu-
tive director of the Avdn Park
Chamber of Commerce in
Avon Park "I don't make
New Year's resolutions
because ydu never keep them
anyway. But
my number
one hope for
the new year is
that we can
complete the
plans for the
downtown
revitalization
project that has
been in the works for many
years, and see construction
start on that project. I'd also
like to wish everyone a safe,
happy, and prosperous year for
2005."


Home is truly where the heart resides


Fitness.- Ever try it?
It requires commitment, consistency and
some creativity to achieve lasting results -,
loving the training as much as the benefits.
Couples who exercise their souls can't peer
inside and watch the process. But their
marriages reflect a more confident, loving
posture.
The first Sunday of each month, the
News-Sun will feature a series of true sto-
ries compiled by correspondent Jan Merop.
They're designed to encourage you to
stretch, tighten and tone the soul of your
marriage. Ready? It's workout time!

By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
Paul and Joy's house had sold and they
only had a short time to find another place
to live.
They had been looking to purchase
another house, but hadn't found anything
right for their family. Talking with a real-
tor friend, they inquired about rentals.
He wasn't very encouraging.
"You have three active boys. It's going
to be tough finding a rental where a fami-
ly of five will be welcomed. Renting isn't
for you."
So they abandoned the idea and contin-
ued their search for'a place to buy. But
time was ticking away. They felt confused.
Would they ever find a place to call home?
Frustrated, Paul and Joy sat together
and talked things through.


"We gave up on the
idea of a rental so
quickly," Joy said.
"I know," Paul
agreed. "We let some-
one else's opinion
change our plans.
"We've been trusting
God all this time. Let's
let him lead us and not
close any doors."
About this time, they
found the ideal proper-
ty to build a country

home. Excitedly, the
wheels began turning toward this new
goal.
Now they really needed interim hous-
ing to accommodate construction sched-
ules. Apartment rentals in their rural area
were rare not to mention the boys being
used to lots of roaming room. They
prayed specifically for just the right land-
lord and situation to meet their needs.
"Out of the blue," they heard about a
couple who shared several rooms in their
home, renting to people in transition.
Joy called only to be told that they'd
decided not to rent out the rooms any-
more. The disappointment in Joy's voice
caused the lady to ask a few more ques-
tions. But, Joy could sense the woman's
reluctance when she heard they had three
boys.
"Oh, but they are very well behaved


boys. Could we come
and at least meet you
both? We would really
appreciate it."
The couple agreed
and Paul, Joy and sons
piled into their station
wagon hoping this was
their answer to prayer.
Thankfully, an
unmistakable sense of
connection was felt by
all parties. Not only did
God meet their needs,


but the boys had seven
acres to roam and a wonderful basement
complete with pool table and work bench.
But instead of the projected three
months, it took six months for their house
to be completed. How easily discontent-
ment and complaining tried to steal the
sense of adventure and provision of only a
few months before. When would they ever
get completely unpacked? When would
the boys finally have their own rooms
instead of being crammed into one small
bedroom?
Recognizing their negative attitudes,
they sought the Lord. He showed them it
wasn't just about them, but how they were
touching the host couple.
Being together as a family was the
important thing. Home, after all, isn't in a
particular house. It is where hearts reside
with God and one another.


Warm-up time
Seeking advice from others is
good. But if you're trusting God
to lead, the Holy Spirit will guide.
Together. return to him with your
concerns. Hell help you sort it
out

Sit-up and take notice
Dreams can be easily dashed
by the opinions of people who
don't share your vision. If that hap-
pens. it's time to look each other
in the eye, re-examine and recom-
mit. Some obstacles simply test
our resolve

Curl-up together
When tossed by confusion, rec-
ognize its source. God is not a God
of confusion, but of order. Some
quiet talk and prayer will help you
heed that Inner voice. Home is
where your heart is.

Soul fitness
"'By wisdom is a house built,
and through understanding it is
established; through knowledge
its rooms are filled with rare and.
beautiful treasures." (Proverb.'
24: 3 & 4. NIV)

A wooden rowboat is moored to the shore along the New River in a scene from 'Along the New River: Second Oldest River on Earth.'
The travelogue by Ken Creed will be the first program in the 'Travel and Adventure' film series, which is sponsored each year by the
Kiwanis Club of Sebring. It will be shown at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 11, at the Sebring Civic Center.


Kiwanis film series taking look at New River


Documentary of North America's
oldest river will open the 'Travel and
Adventure' film series


SEBRING The Kiwanis
Club of Sebring will present
the first program of its "Travel
and Adventure" film series at
5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 11, at the
Sebring Civic Center.
The film will be "Along the
New River: Second Oldest
River on Earth."
Many renowned geologists
consider the New River to be
the world's second oldest river
after the Nile in Egypt.
The New River flows
through three states west-
ern North Carolina, south-
western Virginia and West
Virginia. Rocks alongthe New
River Gorge have been found
to be as old as 330 million
years.
The 62,000 acres of .land
and 53 miles along the New


River is located between the
towns of Hinton and
Fayetteville, W.Va. The docu-
mentary shows spectacular
views of the gorge along
Canyon Rim .and the world's
longest single arch steel span
bridge.
Whitewater rafting takes
place along the Great Gorge,
and a boardwalk gives a view
of the largest falls of the New
River.
One of the highlights of the
film will be a train ride to the
New River Gorge National
River Preserve and a stop at an
old-time fiddlers' convention
at Galax, Va.
The documentary strolls
along the New River
Adventure Trail, goes horse-
back riding and rock climbing,


and visits the Irish Spring
Festival, where guests enjoy
the Greenery Stroll, and the
snake chase.
Another stop along the tour
is West Virginia's largest one-
day festival, the "New River
Gorge Bridge Day Festival."
Held on the third Saturday in
October, it commemorates the
completion of the New River
Gorge Bridge in 1977.
Activities include skydiving,
bungee jumping off the
bridge, crafts, scenic river
cruise, white-water rafting and
mountain climbing.
The film was shot by Ken
Creed, a former construction
executive from Greensboro,
N.C., who has been in the film
lecture business since 1982.
The avid outdoorsman has
covered 46 states and six
Canadian provinces with his
travel films.
During his adventures,
Creed has sailed several thou-


sands of miles of the Atlantic
Ocean and Caribbean Sea in
his 32-foot sailboat.
While spending eight years
in Alaska, he produced four
films on that state, two of
which were made for televi-
.sion. In 1987 he received the
Winnetka Oscar Award for one
of those films. He worked
part-time as a big game hunt-
ing and fishing guide and flew
more than 40,000 air miles as
a bush pilot. ,
All of Creed's films have
been selected by the National
Geographic Society for its
film lecture series at
Constitution Hall in
Washington, D.C.
Creed lives along the Blue
Ridge Parkway, near Fancy
Gap, Va.
Season tickets to, the film
series are $25 and can be pur-
chased at the Sebring
Chamber of Commerce. For
details, call Grace Owens at
273-1321.

Nasturiums are colorful and edible


Big seeds and bright, edible
flowers make nasturtiums per-
fect for children's gardens. Yet
even grownups can appreciate
these gorgeous, glowing annu-
als.
Nasturtiums are also known
as Indian cress or Mexican
cress; yes, they are edible.
Common garden nasturtiums
are Tropaeolum majus. As
you're reading through cata-
logs, just be sure not to confuse
this with Nasturtium officinale,
which is watercress.
Most of us are familiar with
the old standards, orange and
yellow 'nasturtiums. Did you
know there are other color
choices? You'll see red,
maroon, near white, salmon-
pink and even bicolor. Peach
Melba, as the name suggests,
has peach blooms, with a splash
of wine-red near the center, just
like the raspberry sauce on the
famous dessert! Strawberries


and cream sports red
splashes on creamy ..'
white flowers.
With single, semi-
double or double
flowers, there's a
nasturtium out there
for everyone.
In addition to a
bringing bright color
to a garden, nastur- GRO
tiums add form with SA
their unusual, attrac-
tive foliage. The
stems extend down Higl
from the center of County
round, flat leaves, Garc
giving them a
strangely space-age
look.
Although most nasturtium
leaves are a soft medium green
or blue-green, some cultivars,
such as the dark-red-flowered
Empress of India, have dark-
green, deep-red-tinged foliage.
Others, including the Alaska


is

ela

Ide


series have variegat-
ed foliage, green
splashed and streaked
with white or cream.
Nasturtiums also
come in several sizes
and shapes. Dwarf
types, which grow 8
to 15 inches tall,
include the Alaska
ING series and double-
flowered Dwarf Cherry
O Rose. Semi-trailing
types, like the red or
mnds yellow bleam hybrids,
faster drape 2 to 3 feet -
ners perfect in a hanging
S basket.
If you're lodking for
a climbing vine, there's Jewel
of Africa with its mixed colors,
or pale-yellow Moonlight. Both
of these will climb 8 to 10 feet
-just right for short trellises or
fences. The leaf stalks twist
around supports, allowing these
vines to climb. Be sure your


trellis has narrow uprights so
plants can start moving upward.
