Benton puts


changes in


place for


more patrols

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands County residents
will see a different, more visible sheriff's
office. This week, Sheriff Susan Benton met
with deputies to rearrange the rank structure
and better use the deputies she has.
"I had to identify sworn folks who could get
out on patrol," she said Thursday.
The biggest voter concern in this election
was getting more deputies on the road. Benton
also wants enough investigators in place to
follow up on complaints.
Her plan is a work in progress and will
adjust as needed, she said.
The chart
Benton has promoted bureau chief captains
to majors and promoted some lieutenants to
captain. Benton promoted most sergeants to
lieutenants and corporals to sergeants, then
abolished the corporal rank. There is no
undersheriff at this time.
Every remaining or new lieutenant will act
as a watch commander when on duty and
oversee one of four squads, with two sergeants
per squad and at least five deputies per ser-
geant. Benton hopes this will help spread
responsibility, increase accountability and
reduce liability. Several former divisions are
being incorporated into main divisions for
efficiency.
Benton wanted a clear line between man-
agers who don't get paid overtime and those
who do in order to comply with the Fair Labor
Stinidards Act and picpiIc :lr union negotia-

Though 11 women have served as sher-
iff in Florida, Benton is the first elected
who did not succeed a spouse after his
death.
"You have made history. Are you ready
to shape history for the future?" Assistant

Barbecue festival starts today


BARRY FOSTER/News-Sun
Mitchell Harvey and his son, Todd, of Lake Placid work to set up the Spinning Pigs
Team grill at the Highlands County Fairgrounds in Sebring Thursday. They are one of
more than 40 teams in this year's edition of the Central Florida Barbecue Festival,
which starts today.


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The gates open at 9 a.m.
today for the 2005 edition of the Central
Florida Barbecue Festival.
Beginning at noon will be the antique
tractor and car parade, which will wend
its way through Sebring and end up at
the Highlands County Fairgrounds.
Participants with the barbecue fest
actually began setting up Thursday at
Firemen's Field.
The first two arrivals represented
teams from one of the closest and one of
the furthest points on the roster.
Dr. Frank N. Swine and his team from
Orleans, Mass., had their rig parked at
the field and members of the Spinning
Pigs team of Lake Placid were on site
setting up their grill not so very far away.
Also unloading his rig was Wayne
Rosaire of Rosaire's Racing Pigs.
"It'll be a swine time," he promised as
he unloaded "Professor Pig," one of a
quartet of carved porkers that Rosaire
uses as decor on his portable race track.
Making their initial appearance at the
Highlands County Fair several years
ago, the racing pigs are one of the crowd


favorites of the barbecue festival.
The festival will again be getting
some television coverage.
"We have a filming crew out of
Jacksonville that is following the Florida
Barbecue Association tour this year and
they'll be highlighting our event," organ-
izer Skip Adams said.
The work will be done by First Coast
Video.
"What we're doing is following the
FBA's sanctioned barbecue events," said
Rennie Knopf, owner of the company.
Their goal is to produce a show to be
entitled Championship Barbecuing. It is
to be hosted by Jacksonville chef Dennis
Stewart, who also is known locally as
Mr. Natural.
"He has a tremendous following in
Jacksonville," Knopf said.
The event will center around both the
event and the teams that go there in
search of points and prizes.
"We'll talk with the local coordinators
about the event then talk to the competi-
tors about their cooking techniques," he
said..
The video company discovered the

ready for

celebration
WAUCHULA- The
grand reopening of a gro-
cery store next week will
also mark a day long cele-
bration of a community
that was hit hard this past
summer by hurricanes.
At 8:15 a.m. Wednesday
in the parking lot of Winn
Dixie, the community cele-
-bration will get under way.
- Winn Dixie had to close
in the aftermath of
Hurricane Charley because
of having no power, but it
continued to provide ice
and water in the store's
parking lot.
Store officials were
about ready to reopen
when Hurricane Frances
came barreling through,
adding insult to injury. This
time, the store lost its roof
and everything was
destroyed.

BARRY FOSTER/News-Sun

in the background also will be torn down to make way for another office complex.


New office complex to be



constructed in downtown


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Urban renewal
is under way in downtown
Sebring. On Thursday, crews
from Hickey Excavation lev-
eled a trio of offices on East
Center Street as part of the proj-
ect, which will see space for
new shops and offices.
The property is owned by
Serafino and Martha Ramos of
Sebring. The Cuban couple
have been in the city for the
past 18 years.
"We are going to -build it
back again and I am going to
put my beauty shop in there,"


Martha Ramos said.
The couple also owns an
apartment house behind a line
of single story office buildings.
Ramos said that too would be
razed to make room for more
office buildings.
She said the decision to do
the demolition and new con-
struction came as a result of the
trio of storms that ravaged
Highlands County last August
and September.
Ramos explained the office
complex that fronts West
Center Street will be a carbon
copy of the structure that was
there previously. It will be built


by Elfers & Elfers.
Developer Bill Elfers is wait-
ing on the engineering draw-
ings to come back, but after
they arrive construction could
start soon.
"It's going to be a metal
building, not concrete block
like the structure that was
there," Elfers said. "There will
be block walls, but the main
structure will be steel."
The structure will measure
35 feet by 100 feet with five
office spaces. He hoped to be
able to get workers on site no
longer than a week after the
drawings come back.


Hurricane victims with



damage may get tax break


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING-- People whose-
homes still had significant hur-
ricane~damage on Jan 1, 2005,
may get a break on their taxes.
Right now, the Highlands
County property appraiser's
office is getting forms ready for
people who suffered damage
from any and all of the named'
hurricanes that hit Florida in
2004. Anyone who still had
damage not repaired or replaced
on Jan. 1 may be eligible. If the
damage was bad enough, they
could get a break on either their


property taxes or the sales tax
for a new mobile home.
Ed Sager, commercial
appraiser with the property
appraiser's office, said staff are
preparing a damage report form
for people to fill out and return
for local records. People will
fill out other forms for the state
depending on their situation.
Forms are available at either
the property appraiser's office
at 560 S. Commerce Ave. in the
Government Center, by calling
(863) 402-6659, or online at
www. appraiser.co. highlands.fl.
us.


Sager said property apprais-
er's offices have to send the
forms back to the Florida
Department of Revenue'to find
out how much will be reim-
bursed. There are limited funds,
and the reimbursal is based on
the person's tax status as of Jan.
1, 2005.
People who receive home-
stead exemption, and were
unable to live in their homes for
at least 60 days may get a
refund on part of their paid
property taxes. It must be docu-
mented and damage from a
named hurricane.


Nuisance bear incidents up statewide, down locally


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Officials of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission have
released figures showing that
statewide, black bear sightings
and traffic fatalities registered a
record high. However, FWC
spokespersons said Highlands
County trended in the exact
opposite direction.
FWC Nuisance Wildlife
Biologist Diana Lawhorn said
her records indicate that there
were only three nuisance bear
reports in Highlands County in
2004, which might well be the
lowest number since the
wildlife agency started keeping


records in the mid 1970s.
"We had 14 incidents in 2003
and 30 in 2002," she said.
Lawhorn said in recent years
the agency has tried to be
proactive and educate citizens
in taking measures to avoid vis-
its from the bruins and not to be
as concerned when they notice
a bear that is moving through
the area.
"I'd love to say our efforts
are paying off and that is why
we are not getting as many calls
from our local citizens," she
said.
Across the Sunshine State,
FWC agents logged more than
1,500 reports of bear sightings.
That was up over last year's


number of 1,079 and topped the
2002 record of 1,340.
When it came to registered
roadkills of bears, Highlands
County had none. There were
130 bears struck and killed by
motor vehicles across the
Sunshine State last year. That
number was second only to
2002 when a record 133 bears
died in collisions with motor
vehicles in Florida.
The most dangerous spot in
Highlands County for bear-
related deaths is at the infamous
"Bear's Den" near the intersec-
tion of U.S. 27 and State Road
70 south of Lake Placid.
Black bears are a protected
species in Florida.


Bears usually younger
males make their way
through Highlands County,
generally in the spring as they
look for new territory. Many
times they make their way
along bayheads and move
through an area east of Sebring.
In the pagt there have been
scattered problems with the
bruins in Highlands County.
In May of last year there was
a bear that Sebring police
chased for a time. It started with
reports from residents in
Parkcrest Terrace who called
with a report of a black bear on
Youth Care Lane.
Fred Wild Elementary
School was shut down for near-


ly an hour while police can-
vassed the area. Later, Sebring
Police Sgt. Decarius Jones saw
the bear in a yard on Minerva
Street in the Highlands Homes
area.

A 170-pound black bear tore
into the screen room of a Wolf
Lake area home in August of
2001.
Joseph Killermann had been
cooking breakfast when the
bear decided to barge in to the
Pearl Terrace residence.

The bear reportedly had been
feasting in neighborhood
garbage cans for several days
prior to that incident.

Children from an after-school program in St. Mary's Ohio, help the Mentors for Life program in Hardee
County, which also serves Highlands County.


Ohio Big Brothers Big Sisters


agency helps Hardee program


Special to the News-Sun
When the children in an
after-school mentoring program
in St. Mary's, Ohio, learned that
several Big Brothers Big Sisters
agencies in Florida had been
severely impacted by the sum-
mer's hurricanes, they decided
to reach out to other Little
Brothers and Little Sisters.
Last week, a box of school
supplies and a packet of hand-
made greetings were delivered
to Florida Ridge Big Brothers
Big Sisters in Sebring.
Chief Executive Officer
Reatha Thomas said the sup-
plies and cards will be distrib-
uted through the Mentors for
Life program in Hardee County,
one of the area's hardest hit by
the storms. The agency serves


Hardee as well as Highlands
County.
The Mentors for Life and the
Ohio Buddies programs have
much in common.
In Hardee County, high
school students are trained to be
mentors and then are bussed to
meet with children at Bowling
Green and North Wauchula ele-
mentary schools. In Ohio the
high schoolers, called Big
Buddies, meet with their Little
Buddies after school. The local
program utilizes asset develop-
ment as the basis of the train-
ing.
The St. Mary's program
focuses on Character Counts
traits; the word for December
was Caring.
Last school year nearly 170


children and youth were served
by Florida Ridge Big Brothers
Big Sisters in Hardee County.
The Buddies program served
120 Littles and 90 Bigs last
year.
Thomas said the Hardee
County Bigs will encourage
their Littles to write back to the
Ohio children to thank them for
their efforts and to perhaps start
some pen pal relationships.
Anyone who would like
more information about Florida
Ridge Big Brothers Big Sisters
may call 402-9001. The agency
recently moved from the
Children's Advocacy Center to
279 US 27 North, in the Village
Fountain Shopping Plaza in
Sebring.


Downtown Sebring comes



alive with January events


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING This first
month of thy year will be off to
a quick start activity-wize if
members of the Sebring
Downtown Merchants and
Professional Association have
anything to say about it.
The group has outlined an
aggressive series of events to
kick off the new year beginning
with the Sunset on the Circle on
the first Thursday of the month
and winding up with a DMPA
planning session and summit to
be held on Jan 29.
Sunset event
Conceived in the first DMPA
summit, Sunset on the Circle
was designed to bring more foot
traffic into the downtown area
on a weeknight. However the
results of the program have
been spotty and some of the
members of the organization
are looking at revamping it.
To kick off the first event of
2005, selected soloists from the
Highlands Little Theatre will
perform.
January Cruisin'
The Second Saturday Nite
Cruise is Saturday. That is when
the owners of vintage, custom
and classic cars, trucks and
motorcycles bring their vehi-
cles into the downtown area to
show them off and listen to
music of the 1950s and 1960s.
Organizers hope' to take
advantage of the Sports Car
Club of America Nationals at
the Sebring International
Raceway this weekend to invite
some of the sports car enthusi-
asts to visit the Circle that
Saturday evening.
Garage sale
On Saturday, Jan. 15, the
DMPA will host the second in a
series of seasonal downtown
garage sales. This is an oppor-
tunity for people to sell off their
unwanted or unneeded items.
There are several advantages in
bringing their goods downtown
to sell.
Probably the biggest is the
huge crowd that jams the down-
town area.
Although the January sale is
said to be the largest of the
three, DMPA Secretary Diana
Hirsch said November turned
up big numbers.
"Everybody tells me that
January is bigger. We've sold
26 so far for January and we
sold nearly all of the spots in


November," said Hirsch, who
has taken over administrating
the three-time a year event.
Mixing it up
On Thursday, Jan. 20, DMPA
will host the Sebring Chamber
of Commerce mixer. This is the
third year for the organization
to take on that event in the first
month of the year.
Starting the evening will be a
rendition of the National
Anthem courtesy of Heartland
Idol winner Nellie Guzman. It's
a nod to the theme for the
evening.
"This is going to be a Super
Bowl theme," Hirsch said.
Among the contests planned
will be "The Best Decorated
Tailgater," where participants
will be .encouraged to bedeck'
their vehicle with their best
National Football League team
paraphernalia.
"The winner will receive a
cooler full of snacks and party
supplies," Hirsch said.
Cars for that contest will be
parked in the lot at the intersec-
tion of Mango Street and
Ridgewood Drive.
She urged all in attendance to
wear their NFL colors to be eli-
gible for prizes.
"We'll be down to four teams
by then, and anybody wearing
one of those team's jerseys will
be eligible for a special draw-
ing. Plus, we'll be making
announcements through the
night calling for the first person
in a certain team jersey to come
over to the announcer's stand
for a prize," she said.
Party and planning
Finally, on Saturday, Jan. 29,
will be a combination meeting,
reception and planning session
for the DMPA at the Sebring
Civic Center.
The idea is to have some
food provided by DMPA with
members asked to bring a cov-
ered dish as part of the effort.
In addition to a party, the
gathering will be a planning
session for the upcoming year.
"I thought we could get
everybody's views as to what.
they would like to see happen,"
membership committee chair-
person Diana Fairchild said.
In an effort to spur atten-
dance, invitations will be sent
to all the members of the organ-
ization.
"It will be short on the meet-
ing and long on the party,"
Fairchild said.
The Sebring Downtown


Merchants and Professional
Association meets the first
Wednesday of each month.


Pioneer


axe head


excavated


in Sebring

Donated to

Sebring Ridge

Museum Inc.

By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun correspondent
An axe head, produced and
used by pioneers, was found in
lot of 135, now 1109, Fernvale
when the land was being
cleared for construction of a
home for the Ben Foster family
in 1956. That axe head has now
been donated to the Sebring
Ridge Museum.
The Fosters had lived many
years in Long Island before
moving to Sebring. Ben Foster
said that as a young boy he
often visited the local black-
smith shop to watch the work-
ers and remembers the process
used to create axe heads of this
type.
He said that the iron shav-
ings or scrapings were gathered
to place between two strips of
iron to make the axe head.
When heated, the scrapings
melted faster than the strips,
thus serving as glue to hold the
strips together. The opening for
the handle was shaped next.
With a heavy duty tool similar
to wire pliers, the blacksmith
then twisted the opposite ends
to close the opening that would
secure the handle.
A close inspection reveals
the remnants of the twisted end

Finding this relic in virgin
land only a scant mile from
Lake Jackson stirs the imagina-
tion as to who might have been
here before the development of
Sebring: Were they Indians who
might have'traded for the tool,
early homesteaders, cattlemen
on drives, the first surveyors of
Florida, or even military
troops?

history, mentioned

miles from the location men-

long ago. Indians from the
south brought feathers to trade
for stone that were brought by
the Indians from the north.

PHIL ATTINGER/New-Sun
Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton explains on Thursday how
a new organizational structure for the law enforcement agency may
reduce crime and improve service to the public. All sworn officer
divisions will have about four squads headed by a lieutenant and
staffed by two sergeants with at least five deputies each. Hopefully,
this will put enough officers into the field, into investigations and
into detention to help reduce crime case loads in a growing county.

started as the big rig attempted
to change lanes.
The 18-wheeler first side-
swiped a Kia van and went out
of control. It then swerved
across the median into the
northbound lane of the inter-
state where it ran over a Toyota
Corolla driven by a Virginia
man.
He was pronounced dead at
the scene.
The tractor trailer then col-

Ward. He was killed instantly.
Jennifer Ward was taken to
Southeastern Regional Medical
Center in Lumberton, N.C.,
with a crushed elbow.
The semitrailer finally over-

and caught fire. The north-
bound lane of the interstate was
closed for about eight hours as
crews worked into the early
morning hours of Monday to
clear the wreckage.
Jennifer Ward was a graduate

barbecue competition by accident and have found
a niche in covering the events.
"Actually, we started last year when we cov-
ered our local event known as the Ham Jam, here
in Jacksonville," he said.
After some talks with FBA officials they found
that there was nobody doing the videography.
Knopf is looking to the Sunshine Network as a
logical place to air the show but also has been
talking with several other potential outlets
including officials of the Brighthouse Network.
"They're down in Orlando, which is the FBA's
largest concentration of members," he said.
This will be the second consecutive year for
the barbecue fest to get television coverage. Last


year, a Public Broadcasting System television
show covered both the event and a local team.
Barbecue America, hosted by the affable Rick
Browne, used it as a segment in their premiere
show of the second season.
The program is billed as "the most-watched
food program on public television from June-
August."
Described as a "gastronomic travelogue," the
program showcases regional barbecue styles by
visiting some of the country's hottest barbecue
spots.
In addition to heats by Rosaire's Royal Racing
Pigs, there will be music from local singer-song-
writer Reece Thomas and area disc jockey Rooter
Rush. The hog calling contest is set for 7 p.m. on
the main stage with the evening to wind up with
a performance by the Back Stage Pass Band.

What's in a name?
In doing research recently
for a client, I came across
another potential roadblock for
researchers: changed names.
This includes people, places
and things, a researcher's
nightmare or challenge,
depending upon your persist-
ence!
An example is the city
where I grew up: New Berlin,
Ohio. It was established in
1831, but in 1918, as a result
of armed conflicts in Europe,
the name was changed to
North Canton.
This kind of name change
was extremely common across
the United States during the
years of World War I. Public
sentiment turned against place
names reflecting the "old
country." -
All maps, legal records such
as deeds and wills, obituaries
and the like would contain the
place's original name.
Especially if you are doing
research online, this original
information may be difficult to
excavate.
People's names also
changed, especially when the
immigrated to the United
States. Even common names
in Europe and Asia where
changed to reflect simplified
spelling or abbreviation. My
own family name has run the
gamut from "Zaengler" to
"Zengler."
From personal experience, I
know how easy it is to mis-
spell a name and assume you
have identified a person or lin-
eage. There were four Zingler
girls ahead of me in school. In
a time before computers,
teachers always assumed my
surname had been misspelled
_ and that I was the fifth in the
lineup.
But back to New Berlin. It
was thoe home of Spangler's
Electric Suction Sweepr com-
pany. Never heard of it?
Herbert W. Hoover founded
the Hoover Suction Sweeper
Company in New Berlin in
1908, and the North Canton
Hoover High School was
named after him. Even today,
it is mistakenly reported has
having been named for Herbert
C. Hoover, a former president
of the United States.

Buying a PC? Know what you need and


what you're getting for your money


By RICHARD M. ROBERTS
Special to the News-Sun
'm often asked which computer system. I rec-
ommend for purchase. My answer is always the
same:
What are you going to use your computer for?
What you want to do with a new computer, and what
you want it to do for you?
Personal computers come in three major price cate-
gories under $600, $600 to $1,200 and over $1,200.
The old adage you get what you pay for is
appropriate when selecting a computer in terms of the
capability of its applications, but it doesn't necessarily
reflect the quality. Most computers on the market today
use the same internal parts from the same manufactur-
ers.
There is no reason to spend a lot of money on a com-
puter if a less expensive model will serve your purpose.
For example, if you plan to surf the Internet, shop on
line, correspond with friends and family via email, do
school home work papers, office work, some basic
accounting, or'write checks, a model under $600 will
do just fine.
The main reason for the low cost is that the comput-
er will consist of older hardware not the latest and
greatest technology. In computer terms, "older" means
more than 18 months from production. You will not
know when the computer you are purchasing was
assembled.
Age will not harm the PC, but it will not run as fast
or do all the things the newest models will do. You will
probably not be able to view DVD movies or play the
best 3-D games. You may be looking at a Celeron
processor here.
If you intend to design Web sites, edit videos or
music, create intensive art work, or do computer draft-
ing, you should consider moving up to a computer that
costs at least $1,200. These computers are not required
for school work, by the way, no matter what you chil-
dren might say. You will be likely be looking at a
Pentium 4 processor.
Consider a computer over'$2,000 if you require high
speeds and lots of memory and hard drive space and
run complex applications. Computers in this price
range should also have a Pentium 4 processor and an
.expensive graphics card more than the average
home computer user will ever need.
Regardless of the computer you buy, you can surf the
Internet at the same speed. Increasing your Internet
speeds involves upgrading your Internet service by
going from dial-up connections to direct service lines or
satellite.

Smart buying
When you buy your computer, you may need some
extra components so that you can get the most use out
of it. You won't need everything that catches your eye.
Do buy a surge protector. Don't void your warranty.
These only cost about $20 and can protect your com-
puter from being damaged by electrical surges.
Don't necessarily buy a new solid state jump drive,
designer mouse pad, digital camera, Web camera,
speakers or wireless mouse and keyboard. These add
expensive, and they may not serve your needs well.
Finally, don't buy a laptop computer instead of a
desktop unless you plan on traveling extensively.
Laptops are always more expensive than desktops for
the same level of performance. They can be expensive
to repair, and kids' games do not play well on them.


Srr
it j, -.


/.d


Packages
When you purchase a computer, it should come with.
a printer, monitor and basic operating system (such as
Windows).
Computers must have an operating system; other-
wise, they are like expensive boat anchors without a
boat. If you see a computer being advertised at a shock-
ingly low price, ask whether it comes with the operat-
ing system and basic programs. You may arrive at the
store and find that you wiJl be expected to purchase the
software yourself hence the low price for the com-
puter. Buying an operating system alone can cost $300.
The standard operating systems are Windows XP
Standard Edition, Windows XP Professional and
\ window s XP Media. For most consumer users, the
standard edmlon \t ill be appropriate.
Additional software
Some computers come with none of the software you
will need for word processing, accounting or other
needs. Many come with versions of Microsoft Office.
For most people, the standard edition will suffice.
Virus protection software may be installed on your
computer. If it isn't, purchase something that includes
basic protection. Don't waste your money on spam pro-
tection software. The best spam protection is that you
never open e-mails from people you don't know.
Getting to know your equipment
Most computer hardware is dependable and most
computer problems are created by the users and not the
hardware. It's no joke: Users are big business for PC
technicians. You may want to take a introductory class
at a community college in order to familiarize yourself
with the best practices for using the computer.
These courses are affordable, and you will find the
local college has excellent and personable instructors.

system Windows XP. It should be included with the,
purchase. If you don't get the copy, and the computer


Before buying a computer,
ask these questions:
Here is you question list before selecting
the system:
Does the computer come with Windows
XP or is that extra?
What other software is included with the
package and what will it do?
es the price include a monitor?
M Does the computer have a modem?
Does the system come with Microsoft
Office? If so which version?
Where do I get my computer serviced
wnile under warranty?
Where do I get my computer serviced if I
purchase a service contract?
What does the service contract cover and
not cover?

system dies, you may need to buy the operating system.
Some computers come with a recovery disc. A recov-
ery disc contains the operating system, as well as hard-
ware drives and will restore your computer like new. It
won't recover all of the files you have created and
saved on your computer. That's why it's important that
you back up your data on hard storage media.
Before making your purchase, check out the Web
site of PC Magazine at http://www.PCmag.com. It will
have computers in different price ranges for you to
compare.

Serving Highlands County since 1927


News-Sun, Friday, January 7, 2005


EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor


Are we ready?

Highlands County made history Wednesday as Lt.
Susan Benton was sworn in as the county's new sheriff
and the first woman in the state to ever be voted into that
position during a general election.
But the question that Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert
H. Waters Jr. asked the crowd was "Are you ready to
shape history for the future?"
The direction the county took when casting its ballots
makes Waters think "the answer is a resounding, 'Yes.' "
Let's hope he's right.
Waters talked about growing up in a small town in
Kansas where the deputies would stop in on a weekly
basis to talk about sports or local events. He said people
today don't talk to law enforcement so much and that
needs to change.
That may be so, but it's not just the people who need
to change, but also those officers who stand behind the
badge. Everyone needs to change.
The general public needs to stop assuming that officers
are "out to get them" and the officers need to stop putting
themselves above the general public. We all need to get
back to being a community that talks to one another.
Waters said, "People striving to destroy (our) nation
think that in our smaller communities, no one will care,"
he said, challenging people to be alert and report what
they see as suspicious.
Benton has been a part of this community and a part of
this law enforcement agency for years. She knows the
people in the agency and she knows a lot of the people in
the community.
She knew the challenge of the sheriff's post after
working as the public information officer for a number of
years and continuing her education in administration
practices. It was a challenge she accepted willingly when
she threw her name into the hat as a candidate for office.
SShe never backed down, even when she didn't gain the
support of her boss and faced a co-worker in the chal-
ten -.
Wednesday, Benton took her oath of office in front of
her extended family parents, sister, children, daugh-
ter-in-law and granddaughter as well as the sheriff's
office rank and file, and officers from the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement, the Florida Highway
Patrol and the Avon Park, Lake Placid and Sebring police
departments. Avon Park Correctional Institution officers
provided security.
SThere.was a sense of community present in the South
Florida Community College auditorium. How far that
sense of community goes will depend on Benton, her
staff, and more importantly, the general populace of
Highlands County.
Like any new administration, changes will happen. As
citizens who don't know the workings of the sheriff's
office, we must trust that this new administration knows
what needs to be done. After all, it was us, the voters,
who put Benton in office.
We must give Benton our trust, and in doing so reaf-
firm our trust in the deputies and staff under her wings.
They have already reaffirmed their oath of service to the
citizens during Wednesday's ceremony.
Are we ready to shape the future of Highlands County?
We've got a good leader in the form of Sheriff Susan
Benton.
The answer needs to be yes.

Can't ATVs

share county?

Editor:
Members of our family have
been riding ATVs (all-terrain
vehicles) for the past 20 years.
In fact, we are now beginning
our third generation of riders.
When my sons were
teenagers and out riding their
ATVs, I knew where they were,
who they were with and what
they were doing. I was able to
go check on them at any time.
They were out having fun' get-
ting muddy and dirty. I can tell
you one thing for sure, "Dirt
and mud wash off, drugs
don't".
ATV riding is a recreational
sport that can be enjoyed by the
entire family and people of all
ages. I have seen many parents
riding %\ ith their children and I
ride with my grandchildren. We
have seen otters, deer, gopher
tortoises and bald eagles.
Some of the people riding
today are professionals who
work at very dangerous and
stressful 'occupations. What
better way to relieve some of-
that pressure than the freedom
and fresh air of riding an ATV?
Most ATV riders do their
best to respect the environment.
We do not do as much damage
as those who dump all types of
building waste in the woods
and undeveloped areas of our
county. I have seen tons of
roofing material, tile, paint,
chemicals, etc., deposited in the
woods.
We do not do as much dam-
age in our county as developers
who build in the wetlands,
clear-cut acreage and lots for
development and put tons of
pesticides and fertilizers onto
ball parks, golf courses and
recreational areas where endan-
gered species of plants and ani-
mals live. We try to ride our
ATVs with respect for these
areas and the many species that
inhabit this unique area of the
Ridge.
Is an ATV rider "crossing" a
street in an undeveloped subdi-
vision as dangerous as a golf
cart, bicycle, or motorized
scooter driving on the streets of
a developed area with automo-
bile traffic driving at a speed of
25, 35, or 40 miles per hour?
I ask you, "Is not Highlands
County large and rural enough
for all of us to enjoy our vari-
ous activities, whether it is
golf, cycling, water skiing,
fishing, hunting, or the riding
of horses or ATVs?

'Good ol' boys'

Still at work

Editor:
I agree with Mr. (Don)
Streeter on the waste of taxpay-


ers money by the "big brother
society" that runs our govern-
ment.
There is no recourse for the
taxpayer. The Congress is a
"good old boys" organization
with the common understand-
ing of "I'll scratch your back if
you'll scratch mine." The only
recourse is mandatory term
limits on all congressmen.
Twelve years should be the
maximum for any representa-
tive or senator.

Look at the "omnibus bill"
passed last month by Congress.
It contains:
1. $500,000 for a soccer and
ski park in Anchorage, Alaska.
2. $250,000 for the Country
Music Hall of Fame in
Nashville.
3. $200,000 for pedestrian
"walks" in Montgomery
County. Md.
4. $100,000 for a swimming
pool in Ottawa, Kan.
5. $80,000 for a Gay-
Lesbian Community Center in
San Diego.
6. $75.000 for a paper indus-
try Hall of Fame in Appleton,
Wis.
7. $35,000 for the Alabama
Sports Hall of Fame.
8. $25,000 for fitness equip-
ment for the Bradford County,
Pa., YMCA.
9. $15,000 to promote an
opera about Julius
Oppenheimer, the Russian
communist spy, plus
10. An additional
$100,000 to the San Francisco
Opera for the production of the
opera.
11. An increase of $18 mil-
lion to the National
Endowment for Arts to produce
such as the above fiasco.

In addition, Congress has
made its own retirement secure
with annual COLA's above that
of Social Security. Your
Congress at work. Wake up,
American taxpayer.

'Historians ... will point to the

role of technology in frustrating

censorship and central control -

and marvel at the power of instant

communications to spread the

truth, the news, and courage

across borders.'
GEORGE W. BUSH, 43rd U.S. president, 2003


Canada from selling medicines
to U.S. citizens who cannot
afford to buy their life-saving
medicines in this country.
By stopping Canada from
selling medicines to us, Bush
was during up his standing with
the drug companies who give
millions of dollars to keep him
in office. This president, given
the highest office of the land,
has become a back-stabbing
dictator and a thief. He has
stolen our right to free trade
and the sacred right of free
choice.
If my understanding is cor-
rect after Jan. 15, we will no
longer lawfully buy our medi-
cine from Canada.
I will soon be 85 years old
and on a low, fixed income. I
am on two kinds of hyperten-
sion medicines, Catapres and
Tenormin daily. Both these
medicines are beta blockers. I
cannot just stop them or change
to something else. Both are
expensive. In Sebring, three
months supply costs well over
$450. Buy the same dosage,
same amount from Canada
costs $212.02, including ship-
ping and handling.
.Do you. understand why
those of us who depend on
these savings are angry?
Oh sure, George W. has
come up with medication cards
that have bewildered and con-
fused seniors who have not
done their "home work." Those
of us who have crunched the
numbers, worked his scheme
out on paper, know that the
medications "wonder cards" in
the long run make their med-
ication cost slightly more than
what they were paying for
medications without the cards!
Now let's talk about Mad
Cow disease: The second cow
and how many others we
haven't been told about?
In the beginning of the pres-
ident's crusade against seniors
buying drugs from Canada, he
stated he "worried" the drugs
might not be safe.
Determined to hold Canada's
feet to the fire on the "drug
deal," our president is willing
to let Canadian beef flow freely
to the American public. He
isn't worried about our safety.
About Social Security: Our
Social Security is not, I repeat,
is not in such bad shape that it
can't wait until Bush is out of
the White House. Four years
won't make that much differ-
ence. It is said to be solvent, by
those who know, until the year
2022. There is no such urgency
as Bush would have us believe.
He wants to make his mark in
history. He already has a
black one, with a background
of red!
And Jeb Bush? What does he
know about organizing and
controlling disasters? What did
the governor do during the hur-
ricanes other than fly above the
disaster areas.
I lost my roof and other dam-
ages. He didn't stop here. His
"expertise" does not warrant
sending him to tsunami disaster
sites. That is Colin Powell's
job. Jeb Bush wouldn't be
working on his resume, would
he?
For all of you who did this
country and the world disserv-
.ice by voting for this power-
grabbing crook, I hope you will
smarten up by 2008. We don't
. have a democracy any longer.
This government is dictated
by lobbyists who "buy" the
decisions made in Washington
and forget the rest of us.

Did I miss

something?
It seems like soon after the
hurricanes swept across our
lovely state we started hearing
reports that this was going to be
one of the coldest winters we
had seen in a long time.
Have I missed something?
I realize that we still have a
while to go, but there sure can't
be any complaints about this
beautiful weather we've been
having here lately.
At church Wednesday night I
was talking to some friends,
Harold and Sue Kibler, who'
just came "home" from their
other home in Indiana. They
said the weather was pretty
nice when they left on Monday,
but by Wednesday night their
daughter was facing a nasty ice
storm. She doesn't live too far
away from their summer home.
It sounds pretty rough from
what I've seen on the news and
what I've read on Associated
Press.
Areas where snow and ice
are usually not a problem are
now facing ice glazed high-
ways and power lines, which of
course is causing numerous
traffic accidents and power out-
ages.
People in Texas, New
Mexico and California don't
often see this kind of weather.
In Kansas, a state that is not a
stranger 'to snow, they are
expecting things to get worse
before they get better.
In South Dakota, it was
reported that the mercury
began to drop Wednesday and
it dropped and dropped until it
finally stopped at 39-below.
There are reports of 30 inch-
es of snow outside Flagstaff,
Ariz., and as much as 3 feet in'
the mountains around Los
Angeles.
I don't know that I want that
kind of weather, but I was look-
ing forward to wearing my
sweaters a little longer than the
two weeks we've been given so
far.
Maybe the meteorologists
had it right and we will get
some colder weather further
into this new year but I'm kind
of thinking that the hurricanes
caused them a little confusion
too.

I attended the swearing in
ceremony Wednesday of our
new sheriff, Susan Benton.
Robert Waters Jr., assistant
U.S. Attorney, deputy chief
criminal division, said a lot of
things that made sense. It's too
bad his comments couldn't be
heard by everyone in the coun-
ty.
I have always loved to hear
Deputy Sheriff Monica Sauls
speak. I've known her most of
my years as a journalist.
She has never been at a loss
for words, never speaks from
notes (that anyone can tell),
always speaks eloquently and
always makes you feel like
she's speaking directly to you
regardless of how many people
are in the room.
Who knows, maybe some
day she'll run for an office
somewhere ... but then again,
after the number of years she's
spent working for the govern-
ment, she may retire from pub-
lic life when she does retire
from the sheriff's office. Let's
just hope that's no time soon.
I have also known Howard
Godwin since my early days as
a reporter. He was police chief
in Avon Park when I started
working there. I have always.
admired him and am glad to see
he can now enjoy his retire-
ment.
Too often, people retire after
a serious illness, or because of
financial reasons, are never
really able to retire. I'm glad
Howie is going to be able to
relax a little. He deserves it.

Making resolutions for this new year


Less than a week into
the new year and
already I'm well down
the road paved with
good intentions.
Last Friday I wrote a
story, "Postman Does
Ring Twice," which was
published on Sunday.
When I returned to
my desk Tuesday, fol-
lowing the New Year's
Day long weekend,
there was a message
waiting for me about


TUFF STUFF
CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY


that story, which, in brief, told
about the return of money to a
postal customer who had acciden-
tally mailed a bank deposit enve-
lope filled with $200 cash.
Phil Attinger, my colleague in
the newsroom, had received an e-
mail from Pat Mann telling him I
had missed an important fact and
step in my narration.
Mann wanted to be sure we
understood it was her husband,
Allan Mann, who found the money
in question, and who did the right
thing by turning it in to the Sebring
Postmaster Barbara Greenwell.
Mann couldn't understand why
I hadn't mentioned her husband's
role, and wondered if the postal
official mentioned in the piece,
Debra Overstreet, had neglected
him.
For the record: Overstreet did
not neglect Allan Mann, because I
never gave her the chance to neg-
lect him not that she would
have if she could have but I
never spoke with her.
In fact, I learned of the incident
in the late afternoon on New
Year's Eve. I had a deadline loom-
ing, and I didn't make an effort to
contact anyone at the post office
because it was a holiday and I
assumed it would be time wasted.
Instead, I relied on a telephone call
with Ray Franzek, whose money
was returned, and his daughter, Pat


Walton, to whom he had
told the story after the
fact.
That was a mistake
because there was no
way Franzek and Walton
could know the entire
story. All the action took
place within the post
office, and therefore my
report was bound to be
marred by my assump-
tions based on their
assumptions. Everyone
here with the best of


intentions.
But newspaper writing is non-
fiction, and it must be reliable.
Even simple story lines can con-
tain complications, hidden twists
and turns, which in the end make
everything more interesting, or
meaningful, but occasionally,
totally different.
In non-fiction writing you don't
want the final read to be even a lit-
tle different from the actual story.
In non-fiction writing, it is bad
to assume, which I did, that I had
the entire'story because I had spo-
ken to one eye witness. What I
learned is that I have to follow
through and at least try to find
another perspective, and make it
clear when I haven't.
My apologies to Allen Mann
and his wife Pat.
OK. So much for what I had to
learn. Now, let's take a second
look.
How sad is it that people doing
their sworn duty have become
news? After all, that's what this is
all about.
A Sebring resident called a
newspaper to point out people
doing their jobs.
And we here at the paper
thought this was news worthy
enough to assign a reporter to
write up a story.
Honest people live in Sebring,
film at 11.


Is this sad? Or is it just me?
Worse.
Thinking about this has put me
right on the horns of a dilemma: I
have to admit, that if it had been
me collecting the mail that day, I
might not have done my job. I
might have caved in to the "find-
er's keepers, losers' weepers"
aspect of this story. Sure don't
want to believe I'd do it, but can't
deny there would be probably, at
least a little, tussle between my
conscious and me.
I can picture it. Can't you? No
one paying attention, an unmarked
envelope, ready cash, Christmas
bills. It would cross my mind. To
take it I mean. But boy how I like
to think I'd resist the rush and do
the right thing without sweat burst-
ing out on my forehead from the
effort.
I know I want to do the right
thing.
Am I more of an example of our
time than I'd'like to think? Is want-
ing to do the right thing the new
ethical standard? You want to be
on time, you feel bad that you're
running late, so you call on your
cell phone to apologize and every-
thing is OK. But you're still late.
Sadly, while the vast majority of
us want to be honest, most of us
need help to succeed.
Which is why I am sure the
postal service probably has protec-
tions built into its system, helping
people to do their best, by making
it dangerous to do their worst.
I'm sure I'd have turned the
money in quickly, without the
slightest twinge.
At least that's what I'm assum-
ing.
Maybe this was news worthy
after all.

Teaching the ch
Thousands of children affected
by the devastating tsunami in
South Asia need your financial
help..
Your contribution will play a
vital role between drinking con-
taminated water resulting in fur-
ther loss of life and clean water,
which is important in prevention
of dehydration from diarrhea and
from water borne diseases. POI
Benjamin, my 10-year-old son, PO
has embarked on raising funds on
behalf of UNICEF (United PAULIN
Nations International Children's
Emergency Fund). Every cent has
a value towards helping these tsunami vic-
tims the majority of whom are children,
10 years and under.
UNICEF's executive director said,
"Thirty cents provides life-saving antibiotic
for a child; $1 provides immunization for a
child against a deadly disease; $10 provides
enough high-protein biscuits to feed three
hungry children for one month; $150 pays
for a small well to provide clean water for an
entire village."
UNICEF is also encouraging' educators
and students to participate in raising funds.
"The value of participating is two-fold.
First the money that your students raise will
help provide children in need with medicine,
nutrition, clean water, education and emer-
gency relief. Second, your students will
learn about social problems and solutions
affecting children worldwide.
"The practice of combining meaningful
service with academic learning is a powerful
teaching method known as service-learning
common to a number of schools through the
nation," UNICEF officials said.
As we watched the television the images
of the battered and bruised children made us
compelled to reach out and try to raise much
needed financial aid for these children.
Many of these children are now orphans.
There are also some phenomenal stories of
survival.


lildren a lesson
SShandrika, a school teacher in
Sri Lanka, and her daughter were
passengers on a train when the
tsunami struck, throwing the train
off the tracks like a dog playing
with a sock. Of the more than
S 1,000 passengers on the train,
j, 3 they were among the 10 who sur-
Svived.
Four-year-old Jumaru
NTS TO Samantika was also on that fateful
NDER train. Her body was wrapped and
taken to the morgue when an alert
AU YANG volunteer noticed her move. Her
entire family has been wiped out.
Another young girl rescued can
be seen saying, "Mama and Papaocome and
get me. I am alive." Her parents will never
come. They too are among the thousands
dead.
Pastor Alvin Conner of Vision Christian
Community Church in Avon Park has given
his blessings and has pledged his support to
Benjamin's project. Benjamin is hoping that
generosity will prevail as he embarks on
raising $1,000 for the relief efforts.

Shutout!

Lady Streaks blank DeSoto


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING DeSoto didn't
bring any of the players who
scored in its 59-33 loss to
Sebring on Nov. 18 to
Thursday's rematch, so per-
haps what happened only
stands to reason.
The Lady Blue Streaks shut
out the depleted Bulldogs 58-0
in what is believed to be the
first time Sebring has ever held
an opponent scoreless.
"I've seen scores where
people have been beat by 100,
125-18 or something like that,
but I've never heard of a
shutout -before," Sebring head
coach Robert Sampson said. "I
beat Okeechobee 113-32, and I
thought that was a lot, but no,


I've never pitched a shutout
before."
"I've never been involved
(in a shutout), ever, on either
side," DeSoto head coach
Dennis Foster said.
Sebring led 21-0 at the end
of the first quarter, 36-0 at the
half and was up by 48 heading
into the final quarter. The
entire second half was played
with a constantly running
clock and Sebring never
pressed during the game.
Since the first meeting
between the teams, in the
Firemen's Tip-Off
Tournament, the Bulldogs
have suffered one injury but
seen the rest of their core play-
ers quit, including all four who
made the scorebook in the ear-

lier matchup.
Practices that start at 6 a.m.
may have chased some of the
players off, but the DeSoto
coaching staff is insistent on
having a team of girls that is
just as committed as they are.
"We're not going to back
down on discipline," Callihan
said.


The stark defeat left its mark
on those who remain, some of
whom could be seen crying
during a timeout late in the
fourth quarter.
"They were upset," DeSoto
assistant coach Dave Callihan
said. "It's a little bit humiliat-

BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING Sebring is seeking its
fifth straight Spiegel Memorial
Wrestling Tournament title, but the com-
petition this year will be quite a handful.
First-year head coach Dave
Cunningham believes Lemon Bay is the
team to beat amongst the 14 that will
take to the mats Saturday at Sebring
High School.
"Right now I'd have -to probably say
Lemon Bay's the favorite just because
they're solid," Cunningham said. "They
have a full lineup and they're solid all
the way throt~gh*rnd it lIoks like they're
peaking right now. Fort Myers is really
tough, but they're not as solid all the


way through the lineup."
While Lemon Bay just took down
Class 2A No. 5 Venice in a dual match
earlier this week, Fort Myers boasts
Brandon Kelly, the 2A state runner up in
the 152-pound division last year.
"Lemon Bay's not a lock to win the
thing, either," Cunningham said. "The
top three places will be pretty competi-
tive."
Given the improved strength of the
field and the Blue Streaks' lack of expe-
rience this year, Cunningham will be
pleased with a top three finish.
"We'd like to win it, and it's certainly,
if we wrestle our best, not out of the
question," he said. "But we have five
freshmen in the lineup. That's pushing a


and three-shot cushion

answered the bogey on the par-4 11th hole
with a birdie on No. 12, then birdied No.
15, a 500-yard par-5, followed by a birdie-
2 on No. 16, putting her at 2-under on the
day and 5-under for the tournament.
Then she decided to ride her hot streak
and go for the No. 17 green which is
guarded by a pond about 50 yards short of
the putting surface on her second shot,
looking for an eagle opportunity.
"I was only 210 (yards)," she said of
the shot. "I could have made it, easy, but I
hit an awful shot that clipped a tree and
went right into the Water."
That bogey was followed by the missed
birdie putt on No. 18 as Pressel made the
turn with a 1-under 35. She then bogeyed
No. 1 after the bad wedge shot and sand-
wiched a bogey in between birdies on
Nos. 4 and 6 on the way to a 36 on her

little bit to take first, but we're going to
go for it anyway."
The other teams standing in Sebring's
way will be Lakewood Ranch, Lake
Wales, Port Charlotte, Immokalee,
Sarasota Booker, Sarasota Riverview,
Bartow, Northport, Lakeland Kathleen,
Winter Haven and Moore Haven.
Cunningham has defined his team as
"middle of the road" so far this year, and
that's been borne out an eighth-place fin-
ish in a recent 16-team tournament and
an l1th-place showing in a 22-team
event.
"We're still rebuilding, but I think
we're getting better everyday," he said.

Angels lose


big in the


name game

Just days into 2005, and
already the sublime has given
way to the ridiculous.
The Anaheim Angels
announced Monday that they
would instead become the Los
Angeles Angels of Anaheim,
apparently because absurd and
verbose names should not be
limited to bowl season alone.
For some time, Angels
owner Arte Moreno has been
trying to repair the damage
done when Disney legitimized
the "city" of Anaheim when
that company owned the team.
Only now, he's made it worse.
Aside from the immediate
pointing and laughing that's
going on, other problems will
arise for the Angels. When
referring simply to the team's
location, should people say
Los Angeles (as the team has
asked), Anaheim (as the city of
Anaheim would prefer), Los
Angeles of Anaheim or
Anaheim of Los Angeles?
Are the Angels to be credit-
ed as Los Angeles or Anaheim.
S'in'the standing.' Or perhaps -.--
L.A.-Anaheim, reminiscent of
the old Kansas City-Omaha
Kings of the NBA?
And does the Big A, long a
symbol of the franchise and
currently located in the park-
ing lot of Angels Stadium at
Anaheim (another victim of
the nominal schizophrenia),
stand for Anaheim, Angels,
Angeles or A-No. 1 hub of
confusion?
There's also the issue of the
preposition "of." Of and
Anaheim have been linked
since the debut of the NHL's
Mighty Ducks of Anaheim,
another child of the unholy
Disney progeny.
Still, most people refer to
the team as simply the
Anaheim Mighty Ducks, or
even just the Anaheim Ducks.
But something tells me base-
ball's preposition-droppers
will attacked with more furor
than those dropping "the
clear."
Worse yet are the conse-
quences of this for other
teams. When the Minnesota
Twins became the first profes-
sional sports team to be named
for a state and not a city, a it
began an ongoing trend away
from municipality and towards
regionalism, of which the
Angels were a part when they
were the California Angels.
So how long before we have
the New York Jets of New
Jersey, the Auburn Hills
Pistons of Detroit, the Bronx
Yankees of New York, or the

tsunami victims to purchase equipment and supplies.

'Canes WR Parris skipping senior season


MIAMI (AP) Miami wide receiver Roscoe
Parrish is skipping his senior season and will
enter this year's NFL draft, his agent said
Thursday.
Parrish would hold a press conference later
Thursday to formally announce the decision, said
his agent, Drew Rosenhaus. Team officials had
no immediate comment.
Parrish was Miami's top receiver this season,
catching 43 passes for 693 yards. He also aver-
aged 16.2 yards per punt return, running two back


for touchdowns including one in the
Hurricanes' 27-10 Peach Bowl victory over
Florida on Dec. 31, a game where he was named
the co-MVP.
The 5-foot-9, 172-pound Miami native was the
first player offered a scholarship by Larry Coker
following his promotion to head coach four years
ago. He is the fourth Miami player to declare
early for the draft in the past two seasons; Sean
Taylor, Kellen Winslow and Vince Wilfork were
all first-round picks in 2004.

statement to them when they
came off the court was, 'You
gave it your best effort. You're
not faulted. You tried your
best.' "
Foster remains officially in
charge of the team, but defers
most of the communication
with the players during games
to Callihan, who as the junior
varsity coach, is more familiar
with the recently promoted
girls.
Callihan said the focus right
now is on teaching the game to
his players, only two of which
had any playing experience
entering the season.
"It's really not about the
score," he said. "We know we'll
have a better team.
"One of these days some-
thing is going to click. And
when it does, we'll be in the
hunt. It'll happen."
Even amidst Thursday's
nadir, Callihan was pleased that
his team was still trying at the
end.
"You can see their heart," he
said. "There's nowhere to go

round on Thursday, with
Martha Lang (75-73) another
shot back, followed by Abigale
Schepperle, Candace's sister,
who is at 6-over 150 following

Pressel, who tees off today at
12:47 p.m., knows her game
will have to improve over the
next two days, if she wants to
remain on top.
"I have no idea what (score)
it's going to take (to win), but I

but up. We're just going to keep
playing ball. They'll figure out
how basketball works." v


Sampson, too, was pleased
that his players were showing
effort long after the game was
out of hand.
"I've got a girl diving into
the scorer's table over there,"
referencing Holly Hinojosa's
fourth-quarter dive, from which
she was uninjured. "They didn't
quit. They went after the ball.
That's what I want them to do."
The coach added, however,
that it wasn't his intention to
make the game as lopsided as it
was.
"I'm glad we won. That was
our goal, to come in and win the
game," Sampson said. "Our
goal was not to hold them to
zero points. That wasn't our
goal."
The Sebring starters played
only briefly, as reserve Kristen
Kilmer led all scorers with 12
points.
"I wanted to use it to get
ready for tomorrow night, and
get my starters some playing
time, and get my reserves in
there because they're going to
need it," Sampson said, point-
ing to tonight's District 14-4A
game at Palmetto Ridge.


ANGELS
Continued from 1B'
Arlington-Dallas-Fort Worth
Rangers?
One can only wonder what
would happen if the Angels
rebuilt and moved into the
same stadium they occupied
the last time Los Angeles was
in their name Wrigley Field.
No, not Wrigley Field of
Chicago. The original home of
the Angels was a ballpark in
Los Angeles also called


Wrigley Field, named after the
same gum magnate, William
Wrigley, for whom the
Chicago park was named. The
TV series "Home Run Derby"
was shot there.
So if a team went on an
interleague road trip to meet
the Angels and the Cubs, they
could visit three cities and say
they never left "the friendly
confines."

SPIEGEL
Continued from 1B
The Streaks improvement stands to continue
with the return of 2004 state qualifier Dillon
McGovern, back from a preseason knee injury.
"He's not going to be anywhere near 100 per-
cent, but he's looking pretty good," Cunningham
said. "He's starting to push himself really hard.
He's getting back in shape. He's working with
Blake (Germaine) most of the time in the practice
ring, so he's going to improve real quick. We're
hoping for him to be ready to peak at districts, so
this is just the first step in the way for him."
The return of McGovern will also serve to ease
the burden on Germaine, the team's other pri-
mary mainstay, who was a state runner-up last
season.
"Blake was pretty much having to handle all
the leadership responsibilities with him out, but
now with him back in the room it gives Blake a
little bit of time to take care of his own things and

final nine.
"I hope I'm getting it out of
my system," said Pressel, who
made the national spotlight in
2001 when she qualified for the
U.S. Open at the age of 12. "I
missed a few putts today that I
should of made, but I made
some good putts early."
Pressel wasn't the only golfer
to suffer and up-and-down day
on Thursday. Second-place
Ashley Hoagland of Palmetto
made all pars on the back nine
after starting on No. 10, then


not have to worry about the rest of the team all
the time," Cunningham said. "It gives him a good
training partner to work with, too."
The event begins at 8 a.m. with weigh-ins, and
matches are set to begin at 10 a.m. The champi-
onship is tentatively scheduled for 6 p.m.,
depending on the length of the early competition.
Two mats will be used, Cunningham said, but
a third mat is available if the tournament gets too
far behind schedule. Still, the capacity is less than
ideal.
"We're limited to a small field because of the
size of our gymnasium," Cunningham said.
"Down the road we may look at moving the loca-
tion or something to get a bigger field, but we try
to just keep it competitive with a smaller field."
The coach added, however, that no formal dis-
cussions about a move have taken place.
The Spiegel will be Sebring's only home
match of the season after next weeks dual meet
against Clewiston the only dual meet on the
Streaks' schedule -was canceled.

for love
What would you do if your

without warning, "Me and
Mrs. Jones or Me and Mr.
Jones, have a thing going
on?" Or "I would like you
and my sweetheart to be
friends, for that the only way
your jealousy will end, for I
cannot understand why you
want a whole man when'oth-
ers have to borrow from their
friends."
"Your sweetheart and your
wife could never be friends ...
my sister told me that from I
was 10 and I do not think it's
right'that for me your lawful
wife to ever have your sweet-
heart for my friend," you
lashed out.
While growing up, I heard
these words repeated by
angry women to their cheat-
ing husbands, "Samson was
the strongest man in the days
of olden, until a woman took
his strength from him."
Stealing love on the side,
stealing love on the side, you
don't belong to me ... I don't
belong to you but still we're
together, if that's enough for
you it's enough for me."
The above scenario is all
words from different songs.
Yet, the impact with such
songs is when the music is
gone and the words become a
reality, relationships are dis-
rupted. The lives of children
and in-laws are dismantled.
Yet, some adults would rather
borrow or share somebody's
partner, rather than do with-
out.
So you don't want to expe-
rience any of the above, why
not visit Alaska, where men
outnumber the women? There
is a cliche associated with
Alaska, "You don't lose your
woman, you lose your turn."
There are 107 men to every
94 women, statistics revealed.
Forty-eight percent of
Alaska's population are
women. The profession of
these rugged men ranges
from gold miners, oil work-
ers, hunters, trappers, fisher-
men other professionals.
Research shows, other
areas in the United States
where men out number
women are in Nevada, where
this influx of males is attrib-
uted to the "abundance of
male-dominated jobs."
Colorado and Wyoming were
.the other male dominated
areas.
For the eagerly wishing to
marry single women and
those who have been forced
to share their mates, those of
you who have to hear about
Mrs. Jones and the good
things that are going on, or
the lonely hearts in need of
male companionship, cheer
up. There are available men,
you'll just have to relocate in
pursuit of them.
Remember take time to
know him when you find
him, and be sure to do back-
ground checks. Mama said
you can't hurry love, you'll
just have to wait. Mama also
said, whatever will be, will
be. Until next time, stay
encouraged and give thanks
for each blessing.

Sebring woman speeds



into modeling career


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
.F or the past five years, 23-year-old Summer
Tucker has been living a fast life, one many
would only dream of having.
Tucker, a graduate of Sebring High School 2000,
was just recently chosen as this year's winner of the
Miss 12 Hours of Sebring crown.
Having already been modeling, acting, co-hosting
for television shows, and representing companies at
trade shows and conventions, Tucker received a call
from one of her modeling agents two years ago asking
if she was interested in a job in Daytona. She agreed
to look into it and she, along with a friend of hers,
was asked to stay on for about a year as a spokes
model for the racetracks.
That led to her current job as a Speed Channel
spokes model, which has taken her all over the coun-
try for the past year to every NASCAR event during
the entire season.
"The Speed Channel," Tucker explained, "covers
everything to do with racing. What I do is promote all
the live TV shows at the track."
The main shows include: "Trackside Live" and
"NASCAR Live," both of which bring race car drivers
in for interviews, giving fans an opportunity to "be up
close and personal with drivers and be on TV;" and


"Pitbull," which is "like a Crossfire show of ;'
people in the racing industry." ..
"My job is to entertain the crowd and :
keep them happy, play trivia games with the .-.
kids, and get the crowd rowdy to be on TV;"
the self-proclaimed "crazy NASCAR fanat-
ic" explained, "and, of course, to-give fans
free Speed Channel stuff."
After a whirlwind of a season, having
been from Sonoma, Calif. to Miami, and
everywhere in between, Tucker was looking
forward to her between season break; but
that just wasn't meant to be.
"I had just got home and was like,
Whew! I can breathe and do a little crafts
and stuff and sleep late. And then I got a
call from Models Millennium in Miami ask-
ing me to do a 10-page layout for 'Palm
Beach Illustrated,' she laughed, "which is
like a countywide 'Sports Illustrated' or
lifestyle type of magazine."
SThough interfering with her plans for rest
and relaxation, Tucker jumped and seized the
opportunity.
"It was the coolest day!" she exclaimed. "It was a
bridal shoot and they did it at Disney World. I was
bride for a day, with a fake husband and everything. I
got to wear Verawang dresses and over $500,000


Courtesy photos


worth of Cartier jewelry; and the whole day consisted
of riding around in Cinderella's horse-drawn car-
riage."
That photo shoot landed her on the cover of both
"Palm Beach Illustrated" and "Naples Illustrated,"
something models all dream of but most never experi-
ence.
Tucker, who originally got into modeling at the urg-
ing of family and friends when she was in high
school, could never have imagined she would have
gotten this far. She credits her father Wayne mother,
Lindy, and brother, Luke, and other family, as well as
her "second family," Scott and Diana Albritton and
their daughter, Ricki, for her success. "They have sup-
ported and encouraged me all the way," she stated.
Though she will undoubtedly be very busy with the
new responsibilities of representing the 12 Hours of
Sebring, which include meeting with race teams and
sponsors and promoting the race in addition to all of
her Speed Channel obligations which will resume in
February at the start of the Daytona 500, Tucker has
placed qven more demands on herself in the form of a
recently launched business.
"The company is called Fast Lane and is a market-
ing and promotions company, which allows compa-
nies to come to me and sign promotional models for
their events to represent them as demonstrators,
greeters, crowd gatherers, etc." she explained.
"Basically it will do the same thing that modeling
agencies did for me; only I want to create a database
of models in major cities so that I won't have to fly
models all over the place and put them up in hotels
and all that, which costs a fortune. Instead, I will have
girls in pretty much any area to meet the demands of
clients in their locality."
Though still in its infancy, her goal is to have a

DIVERSIONS


For the movies, 2004 was year of surprises


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
Call 2004 the year of surprises.
After a year of nothing but bad press,
Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ"
turned out to be the third'top-grossing film
in the United States, thanks to Gibson's
astute thinking-outside-the-box marketing
campaign. "Shrek 2" survived the curse of
the sequels by being brighter, funnier and
wittier than the original, and Jamie Foxx
became the break-out star with back-to-
back standout performances in "Collateral"
and "Ray."
On the downside, some heavily hyped
movies didn't pan out. Despite its original
premise, "The Incredibles" was a run-of-
the-mill. superhero cartoon, and "Lemony-
Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events"
would have been a snoozer withoutithe tal-
ented Jim Carrey. Well-meaning but weak
releases came from acclaimed directors
Steven Spielberg ("The Terminal") and
Wes Anderson ("The Life Aquatic"). And
"Fahrenheit 911," the biggest-grossing doc-
umentary of all time, failed to sway the
presidential election a disappointment to
director Michael Moore, no doubt.
2004 was a good year for Tom Cruise
("Collateral"), Leonardo DiCaprio ("The
Aviator") and DreamWorks ("Shrek 2" and
"The Polar Express"). It was a bad year for
the Walt Disney Corporation which:
(A) Tried to split from two of its lucra-
tive partner companies, Pixar and Miramax.
(B) Watched its $100-million-apiece
"The Alamo" and "Around the World in 80
Days" tank at the box office.
(C) Became embroiled in a lawsuit
over the $140 million settlement it
bestowed on Michael Ovitz when it fired
him as Disney president after 14 months.
(D) Saw the end in sight for its contro-,
versial chief executive, Michael Eisner,
who announced his retirement.
Like every other year, some movies were
better than others. Here is my list -- the
best of worst of 2004 based on movies
that played here, in Highlands County.
Don't look for "Sideways," "Million Dollar
Baby," "Hotel Rwanda" or "The
Motorcycle Diaries," which are topping
other critics' lists. They may be great, but
how would we know?
BEST DRAMA OF THE YEAR: "Ray."
Director Taylor Hackford's fascinating
movie about a fascinating mfan stars Jamie
Foxx in a breakout performance as Ray
Charles. Foxx's resemblance to the versa-
tile' singerr is uncanny, but he brings more to
--the. mo ie than mere impersonation. While
"RAy" explores the demons in Charles' life,
it also- revealed his greatest strength a
will to take responsibility for his destiny
and succeed against all odds.
Runner-up: "Finding Neverland."
Although it has only come as close to
Highlands County as Lake Wales, "Finding,
Neverland" is a lovely, bittersweet story
about how J.M Barrie wrote his master-
piece, "Peter Pan." Johnny Depp draws on
his dramatic and comic talents to play
Barrie as eternally youthful and wise in the
ways of the heart. Kate Winslet brings
depth and dignityto Barrie's muse, Sylvia
Davies. More faithful to the spirit of
Barrie's live than the facts, it is nonetheless
a movie adults can savor.
BEST COMEDY OF THE YEAR: "Shrek
2." The gag-a-minute sequel to "Shrek"
was the top moneymaker of the year, earn-
ing more than $800 million worldwide and
selling a record 37 million copies on video
and DVD by the end of 2004. The sequel
has the green ogre meeting the parents of
his bride, Fiona. As Fiona's royal parents,
John Cleese and Julie Andrews joined the
voice cast of Michael Myers (Shrek),
Cameron Diaz (Fiona) and Eddie Murphy
(Donkey, but the scene-stealer was Antonio
Banderas as the crafty fairy tale kitty, Puss-
In-Boots. ("Fear me, if you dare!") Puss
was so popular that Dreamworks is giving.


GOODBYE AND GOD BLESS TO:

The many stars who left us in 2004.

ANN MILLER, 81, Jan. 22. Singer and
dancer who starred in "Kiss Me Kate,".
"You Can't Take it With You," "Oirthe
Town" and many great musicals of the
Golden Age of Hollywood.
MERCEDES MCCAMBRIDGE. 87,
March 2. Oscar winner for "All the King's
Men," she provided the voice of the
demon-possessed girl in "The Exorcist."
SIR PETER USTINOV, 82, March 28 -
Two-time Oscar winner for "Tokapi" and
"Spartacus" and 15-time Oscar nominee
ALAN KING, 76, May 9. Comedian who
appeared in "Memories of Me." "Just Tell
Me What You Want" and "Casino."
TONY RANDALL, 84, May 17. Versatile
actor best known for playing Felix Linger
in 'The Odd Couple."
RONALD REAGAN, 93. June 5. Star of
"Bedtime for Bonzo" "Knute Rockne, All
American" and numerous B westerns who
became the President of the United States.
MARLON BRANDO. 80. July 1.
Nominated for 23 Oscars and won two for
"On the Waterfront" and "The Godfather."
Considered by some to be the greatest
actor of his generation.
FAY WRAY, 96. Aug. 96. Famous for
playing the love interest of King Kong in
the 1933 movie of the same time.
JANET LEIGH, 77, Oct. 3. Star of more
than 50 films, she was forever known for
being stabbed to death in a shower in
Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho."
RODNEY DANGERFIELD. 82. Oct. 5
Comedian who "didn't get no respect" left
his mark on films like "Caddyshack,"
"Easy Money" and "Back to School."
CHRISTOPHER REEVE, 52, Oct 10. Star
of "Superman," he became an advocate for
the disabled after a horse-riding accident
left him a quadriplegic.
HOWARD KEEL, 85. Nov. 7. Musical star
of "Showboat" and "Seven Brides for
Seven Brothers."
JERRY ORBACH, 69, Dec. 28. Musical
star on Broadway and best known as
Detective Lennie Briscoe on "Law and
Order." he made notable appearances in
Woody Allen's "Crimes and
Misdemeanors" and "Dirty Dancing" while
adding his voice to Disney's "Beauty and
the Beast" and "Aladdin: Prince of
Thieves."

him his own straight-to-video movie. Look
for its sometime next year.
Runner-up: "The Ladykillers." This odd
comedy shows Joel and Ethan Coen's ten-
dency to run the gamut between the sacred
and the profane. Follows a gang of con men
forced to knock off an old woman in order
to cover up a robbery. A showpiece for Irma
P. Hall as the saintly Marva Munson and
Tom Hanks as the devilish Professor Dorr.
BEST ACTION FLICK: "Collateral,"
Tom Cruise plays an assassin who com-
mandeers a cab and its driver to chauffeur
him around New York for one night while
he knocks off five targets. Jamie Foxx is the
cab driver who has to outsmart him to stay
alive. Director Michael Mann infuses the
story with high-octane style. Totally rivet-
ing.
BEST SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER:
"Spider-Man 2." Toby Maguire returns as
Peter Parker a.k.a. Spider-Man who
must face a new nemesis in Doctor Octopus
and stop Mary Jane from marrying another
man. Combined some of the humor and
plot of the first "Spider-Man" with an
expanded role for the talented J.K.
Simmons as Peter's hilariously slimy pub-
lisher, J. Jonah Jameson.
Runner-up: "I, Robot." This futuristic
science fiction flick was packed with action
and an intriguing leading man a robot
coming to terms with his humanity and his


destiny. Will Smith is the detective who
thinks the robots are up to something.
Combined humor, action and intelligence.
BEST SEQUEL OF THE YEAR: "Shrek
2." Without the bracing potty humor of the
original, "Shrek 2" became wittier and fun-
nier.
Runner-up: "Harry Potter and the
Prisoner of Azkaban." With Mexican direc-
tor Alfonso Cuaron replacing Christopher
Columbus, the Harry Potter series took an
appropriately dark turn.
BEST PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR:
Jamie Foxx as Ray Charles in "Ray." Does
anyone else come close? Possibly Johnny
Depp in "Finding Neverland," Leonardo
DiCaprio in "The Aviator," and, oh, yeah,
that Foxx again as a cabbie fighting for his
life in "Collateral."
BIGGEST SURPRISE: "Napoleon
Dynamite." This low-budget comedy about
a misfit teenager marked the writing-direct-
ing team of Jared and Jarusha Hess. Jon
Heder is Napoleon, a gangly teenager
growing up in rural Idaho. He approaches
life with disgust and his growing friendship
with two other unpopular classmates.
Stupid but with a heart for its characters.
BEST MARTIAL ARTS MOVIE:
"Hero." In this historical epic, the king of
Qin becomes a target for assassination
when he sets the goal of conquering the
Chinese provinces to unite them into one
country. Jet Li plays the assassin hired to
kill the king's enemies, but he is not all he
seems to be. This luscious feast for the eyes
comes from acclaimed Chinese director
Zhang Yimou, who also produced this
year's "House of the Flying Daggers,"
which is still floating around the country
somewhere.
. Runner-up: "Around the World in 80
Days," simply because it was the only mar-
tial arts-based film, other than "Hero," that
played in Highlands County. Good for giv-
ing fans of Jackie Chan a fix while they
wait for his highly praised "New Police
Story" to come out on video.
BEST MOVIE THAT MISSED HIGH-
LANDS COUNTY ENTIRELY AND WENT
STRAIGHT TO DVD: "Spartan." A military
operative tries to recover a President's kid-
napped daughter and finds more than he
bargained for. "Spartan" is shocking and
high-energy thriller and, like all of David
Mamet's thought-providing films, it ends
with a twist. Stars Val Kilmer, Derek Luke,
Ed O'Neill and William H. Macy.
STINKERS OF THE YEAR: So many
contenders, so little time. This short list
doesn't do justice to them all.
"White Chicks." Shawn and Marlon
Wayans are black FBI agents who go
undercover as'white society sisters. In this
equal opportunity offender, every character
was crass, vulgar and dumb.
"Team America: World Police." From
the creators of "South Park" came this
schizophrenic puppet comedy that couldn't
make up its mind whether America is
wrong or right for being the "world police."
Sporadically funny and thoroughly gross.
"Exorcist: The Beginning." Think of it
has horror pornography an assault of
putrid images for the sole purpose of mak-
ing your stomach churn A complete waste
of time, talent, money and energy.
"Spanglish." A Mexican woman takes
her daughter to the land of opportunity only
to shield her from being influenced by the
troubled white people whose house she
cleans. Trivial family problems turn into
insurmountable mountains in this tedious
melodrama.
"Ocean's Twelve." Bloated with star tal-
ent, this sequel to "Ocean's Eleven" made
absolutely no sense.
"The Day After Tomorrow." This' cau-
tionary tale about global warming is laugh-
out-loud funny for its silly science, but see-
ing New York City being washed away by a
giant tsunami has its guilty thrills.

Joy of Christmas should


fill our lives all year


The gifts have
been opened, the
returns have been
made to exchange
those things that did
not fit or you did not
want; the services
have bee completed;
the mad rush to get
everything ready is
done. No we can put
it behind us for
another year!
Is that what you
have been thinking?
If it is you need to
hear and see those


A Mo
WITH

Rev. Ri
FyfJ


who came that first Christmas.
When the angel appeared to
the shepherds on the plains in
Bethlehem we are told the angel
proclaimed the birth of a savior
and then there were a multitude,
a great number and they praised
God and sang, "Glory to God in
the highest, and on earth peace,
good will toward men!" (Luke
2:14) For this great thing that
had been done there was praise
to God.
We are told that the shep-
herds went to Bethlehem to see


what they had been
told. After they had
seen' him, they told
many of the wonder-
S ful things they had
S seen and heard. They
were filled with great
joy. They had seen
the promise. The sav-
MENT or who takes away
T the sin of the world
GOD had been born. They
did not go back and
chard just return to what
fe they had been
doing... they went
away rejoicing. Luke
says of the shepherds: "Then
the shepherds returned, glorify-
ing and praising God for all the
things they had heard and
seen." (Luke 2:20)
Are you joyful for what you
have seen and heard? Are you
praising God for all that He has
done for you? We should not
put Christmas on the shelf for
another year. The joy' that
comes from the news that our
savior is born is joy that should
fill our lives throughout the
coming year and cause us to


come and rejoice and praise
God! We should be like the
shepherds.
But it was not just shepherds
that rejoiced at what they had
seen. In Matthew we hear the
story of others who made the
long difficult journey to see this
child that was born king of the
Jews and when they found him
they presented him with gifts
and worshiped him. "When
they saw the star, they rejoiced
with exceedingly great joy."
(Matthew 2:10)
The birth of our savior
should fill our lives with joy-
joy that does not disappear in
the week that follows, but joy
that leads us into the New Year
and is our focus for all the-year
to come. With joy we should
come to worship and praise
God for all that we have seen
and heard.

If you want to succeed, consider your choices


Joshua 1:8 says,
"This book of the law
shall not depart out
of thy mouth: but
thou shalt meditate
therein day and
night, that thou
mayest observe to do
according to all that
is written therein; for
then shall thou make
thy way prosperous,
and then thou shalt
have good success."
Proverbs 3:5-6
reads, "Trust in the
Lord with all thine


own understanding.
In all thy ways
acknowledge Him,
and He shall direct
thy paths."
This scripture lets
us know if we medi-
tate, do according to
all that's written in
the word then we
shall be prosperous
and have good suc-
cess. Also if we trust
in the Lord, lean not
to your own under-
standing, acknowl-
edge the Lord, he


heart; and lean not unto thine shall direct our path.
