VOLUME 23/NUMBER 33


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
Cooperation from local citizens and a
coordinated pursuit by local law
enforcement officers resulted in the
apprehension of four men wanted in
connection with the armed robbery of
the SouthTrust Bank in Avon Park early
Friday afternoon.
Arrested were 17-year-olds Robert
Lee Vann, Ednol Antanio Hanna and
Sammy Etheredge and 16-year-old
Stetfone Vadle Buckle Jr. all from
Palm Beach.
The men have all been arrested and
transferred to the Juvenile Detention
Center in Bartow where they are being
held without bond. Hanna, Vann and
Buckle, all have been charged with
armed robbery, sued of a firearm during
the commission of a felony. Buckle also
faces a charge of possession of a firearm
by a convicted felon. Etheredge was
charged with armed robbery, sued of a
firearm during the commission of a
felony, possession and carrying of a
firearm by a convicted felon possession
of cannabis under 20 grams, possession
of drug paraphernalia and resisting an
officer rest without violence.
Avon Park Police Chief Frank
Mercurio said three men went into the
SouthTrust Bank at 825 W. Main St.
shortly after 1 p.m.
"All three were masked and armed,"
he said.
They escaped with an undisclosed
amount of cash.
Nearby the scene at the time of the
stick-up was Avon Park Police Sgt.
Gregory Warner.
--i. was at a traffic stop just over here
when we got the call," he said gesturing
to the south, "We came as fast as 3e
could, but I missed them by about 10
seconds."
The thieves had used a stolen white
Dodge Intrepid to rob the bank. They
pulled that car into the Lemon Tree
Apartments on West Bell Street in Avon
Park and switched vehicles.
However, an alert resident saw the
action and notified police.
"They called us and said there was a
white car with smoke pouring out of it
with guys wearing masks and carrying
guns," Mercurio said.
The "smoke" may have been from the
red dye pack that exploded, staining the
money and the inside of the car.
Police recovered the stain dyed
money in several different locations
along the trail.
The men were then in a 1994 green
Oldsmobile Aurora, speeding south on
U.S. 27. Sebring police spotted the sus-

Brown said he chose to make

Sebring Police Officer Michael Hirsch
and Cpl. Gregory Barlaug joining
Highlands County Sheriff's Deputy
Andy Spires in the chase. Nobody was
hurtin the pursuit although the chase
passed a number of motorists between
Sebring and Lake Placid.
When the fleeing car reached the rail-
way overpass north of Lake Placid on
U.S. 27, deputies threw stop sticks onto
the highway in an effort to slow the vehi-


cle. The stop sticks, sharp chains used to
cut tires, flattened all four of the
Aurora's tires but the vehicle continued
through Lake Placid until it reached the
Highway Park entrance, just south of
town along U.S. 27, where it stopped.
Mercurio said at that time Vann,
Hanna and Buckle fled the vehicle and
were captured almost immediately. They
were taken to the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office sub-station where they
were questioned before being transferred


to the Highlands County Jail.
Etheredge was able to gain access to a
house at the intersection of Washington
Street and Hawthorn Drive. Reportedly
the elderly female resident was outside
in her yard when the man raced by her
and into the purplish gray frame home.
She was taken care of by the sheriff's
office's victim's advocate during the
standoff.

Rotarians buying Shelter



Boxes for tsunami victims


I Sebring Rotarian recalls stay in Sri Lanka, 2A
By ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
SEBRING Answering the call to help the
tsunami victims in Asia, the Rotary Club of
Sebring has collected enough money to buy four
Shelter Boxes.
District 6890 Governor George Banning has
issued a challenge to the district's Rotary clubs to
send Shelter Boxes to the tsunami victims.
In just a short three days and through only
word of mouth, the local Rotary Club has col-
lected $1,954 from members and residents in
Avon Park and Sebring. The club itself threw in
another $1,800 from its reserves, making a total
of $3,754, which will buy four Shelter Boxes at
$900 each.
Joan Warren, the local club's international
chair, said she would like the club's goal to be 10
boxes.
Warren has a personal interest in the tsunami
victims.
John Wong, her son, has not heard from his
grandmother's sister, a resident of the Thailand
area, since the tsunami.


"They still haven't found her. John found out
about our Shelter Box project and sent more than
$200 to help," Warren said.
Wong is the assistant manager at Master's Inn
in Orlando.
Shelter Boxes are large green heavy-duty plas-
tic boxes that each contain a 10-by-20-foot,
three-room, 10-person tent, 10 sleeping bags,
water purification equipment to support the needs
of 10 people for six months, a multi-fuel cook
stove, cooking equipment, eating utensils, tools,
and assorted other survival items.
Shelter Box has become an international grass-
roots service project of Rotary clubs worldwide.
Headquartered in Cornwell, England, with sup-
port centers in the United States, Australia,
Canada, and Japan, Shelter Box has provided
housing and comfort to more than 25,000 people
after natural and man-made tragedies have
struck. Since its inception in 2001, boxes have
been shipped to Iran, Pakistan, Granada, Uganda,
Iraq, Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, and Liberia.
Rotary Club of Sebring President Dan
Andrews said residents can make donations to

Up it goes


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County will be teeming with
firefighters next week as The
Great Florida Fire School is
held at the Public Service
Academy at South Florida
Community College.
The event had been set for
last November but it was
rescheduled for Jan. 12-16 as a
result of the hurricanes that
pounded the state last August
and September.
Department Chair of Public
Service Programs at the SFCC
Public Service Academy Jerry
DeJonge said although the
school is hosting the event, it
actually is being organized by
the Florida State Firefighters
Association, the Florida State
Fire College and some of the
area's volunteer firefighters.
In fact, although most of the


activities will be held at SFCC,
there will be a number of func-
tions to held in other locations
throughout the county over the
course of the five-day session.
"They'll also have sessions at
the Firemen's Association on
U.S. 27, some of the instruc-
tionals will be at the Avon Park
Fire Department and some of it
will take place down at the
DeSoto City Volunteer Fire
Department," DeJonge said.
Early enrollment showed
there were 130-140 confirmed
participants as of Friday.
Nevertheless, DeJonge expect-
ed quite a few more by the time
the program starts on
Wednesday.
"I've been taking calls for the
last two or three weeks from
people saying 'We can't pre-
register but we'll be there with
some other people,' he said.
The Great Florida Fire


School has been in a number of
different locations in the state
for over a decade. Each location
gets the event for two consecu-.
tive years.
"It was in Naples for the past
two years, and we'll have this
one and another one in
November," DeJonge said.
Among the more than three-
dozen courses that will be
offered are aerial ladder opera-
tions, extraction, hazardous
materials and flash overs.
There also will be a number
of wildfire courses including
wildland fire behavior, basic
fire management and standards
for survival.
There will be classes that
overlap into the law enforce-
ment area. Those include crime
scene photography, meth lab
and even an emergency
response to terrorism class.
"One of the courses is emer-


agency vehicle driving, which
we offer with our EMT pro-
gram," DeJonge said.
Despite the fact most of the
courses are being covered by
other entities, DeJonge said that
the SFCC Safety Academy has
been working diligently on a lot
of the program including regis-
tration and classroom coordina-
tion as well as handling hospi-
tality and the financial aspect of
the special school.
DeJonge said they have been
able to juggle schedules to find
enough classroom space to
accommodate the courses being
offered for the public service
academy as well.
"Some of the classes are
being offered on the weekend
which helps," he said.
DeJonge expected that the
firefighters that came to learn
and hone their skills would also
be taking advantage of the

Sebring Rotarian recalls stay in Sri Lanka


By ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
It has been with a heavy heart
that Bruce Lybarger has
watched and listened to news
accounts coming from Asia fol-
lowing the Christmas Day
tsunami.
About 14 years ago,
Lybarger spent six weeks in Sri
Lanka as the leader of a Rotary
Group Study Exchange team.
He made a lot of friends there,
and has stayed in touch with
them.
Fortunately, he has received
word that they are OK.
Lybarger transcribes the
name Sri Lanka as "paradise. It
truly is a beautiful city. It's a
third-world country, but it's
very tropical," he said.
Though it is considered a
third-world country, Sri Lanka
has a tremendous amount of
export business. The country
offers lower wages in labor to
supply clothing to countries
like the United States. It also
exports Ceylon tea.


"It's a poor country, but it is
industrious. The people there
are really hard workers. The
biggest thing is the clothing
industry," Lybarger said.
There is also tourism from
many Europeans who visit.
Galle was one of the first
places in Sri Lanka where
Lybarger's team stayed. There
he became very good friends
with Ruzly Hussain, who has
come to Sebring and visited
Lybarger's Rotary Club.
"We have maintained a con-
stant friendship. I have fond
memories of staying with
Rotarian families in Sri Lanka,"
he said.
He got word from another
Rotarian that Hussain and his
family were on their way to
Galle when the tsunami hit, so
they weren't hurt.
Lybarger also received a let-
ter from another Rotarian
friend, this one in Columbo,
less than 30 days ago. He was
inviting Lybarger to visit his
daughter who is working in the


States.
Rotary in Asia, especially in
Sri Lanka, is very strong.
As the tsunami death toll
raises, Lybarger considers the
possibility that he may not have
known many of the dead, but he
may have seen them.
"I might not have know
them, but I bet I have seen
many of them with my own two
eyes," he said.
Lybarger has a difficult time
imagining the magnitude of the
tragedy that has hit the place he
called for six weeks in 1991.
"In August when the hurri-
canes hit here I was saddened to
see the damage along State
Road 66 and 17. I can only
imagine the 300 mph wave that
hit there with no warning and
no mercy," he said.
Lybarger and other Rotarians
in District 6890 have set up a
Web site for those who would
like to help the tsunami victims
in Sri Lanka. That Web site can
be found at www.helpsl.org.

SEBRING The Highlands
County Fair isn't scheduled to
start for weeks yet but Christie
Spiegel already is in the recruit-
ing mode for those who want to
compete in either the Miss
Highlands or Junior Miss
Highlands County pageants.
She's had announcements
made in the local middle and
high schools to make local girls
aware that the contests are just
around the corer. In fact, their
first meeting is in just a couple
days.
"Our informational meeting
is going to be Tuesday at 5:30
p.m. in Pavilion A at the fair-
grounds," Spiegel said.
That's when she will distrib-
ute the packets of forms and
instructions for those who want
to try and'Wear the uara for
2005. .
"After we hand those out
we'll have a question and
answer session," she said.
Many of the requirements
have not changed but there are
some differences for 2005.
Young ladies wishing to par-
ticipate in the Miss Highlands
County pageant must be 16-19
years of age, while the age
range for Junior Miss this year
will be 12-15 years old.
That's a year younger than
has been eligible in the past.
Usually the Junior Miss pag-
eant has a large turnout of hope-
fuls.


"I had 34 girls last year,"
Spiegel said.
Because of a low attendance
in the Miss Highlands County
pageant, some of the Junior
Miss contestants were given the
opportunity to move up into the
Miss Highlands County pag-
eant.
New this year will be an aca-
demic requirement. Young
ladies who want to compete to
wear either of the crowns will
have to have at least a 2.0 grade
point average.
For the second year, as part
of the Miss Highlands County
pageant, contestants will do a
commercial for their sponsor as
well as participate in an
evening gown competition.
"With the commercial,
they're given an opportunity to
show their creativity, to shine
and show- their-.personality
' more 'than just "-deling on
stage," Spiegel said.
Junior Miss Highlands
County contestants will learn
an opening dance number and
do a dress competition.
Spiegel has been trying to
pare down the different facets
of the competition in an effort
to tighten up the pageant's
timeframe.
Between the facets of the
program, audiences have been
entertained by performers from
local dance schools. Spiegel
said this year would be no
exception.

County has to offer.
"We've tried to get packages
together for them to do that. I
mean, they will have their fam-
ilies with them and they won't
all have classes every day," he
said.
To that end, DeJonge will be
giving the participants a list
with various places in
Highlands County they might
like to visit during their stay.
The participants and instruc-
tors are coming from all over
the state of Florida. DeJonge
said some were even from other
states in the Southeast.
The department chair called
the coordination of the program
"a bit of a test" of their organi-
zational skills. To help,
DeJonge traveled to Naples and
talked with officials at Edison
Community College about their
experience with the program.

ationists.

'Visit and Shop Avon Park' is the

message from Chamber and CRA


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK The Avon
Park Chamber of Commerce
and the city's Community
Redevelopment Commission
have teamed up on an aware-
ness campaign they hope will
bring more revenue to the City
of Charm.
"It's called Visit and Shop
Avon Park," said David
Greenslade, executive director
of the Avon Park Chamber of
Commerce.
The program started shortly
before the Christmas holiday
season.
"This really started off with
the idea of encouraging people
who live in Avon Park to shop
in Avon Park and there are a lot
of opportunities to do that,"
Greenslade said.
The original concept came
up over lunch between
Greenslade and one of the
chamber members.
At this point they have
employed newspaper and radio
ads but plan to branch out using
banners, pins and drawings for
prizes.
There are 25 of the banners
that will be displayed in the
high-traffic areas of the city.
"The banners are 30 inches
by 60 inches. We will be hang-


ing them on the telephone polls
both on Main Street and on U.S.
27. This is not just a downtown
event, this is an Avon Park
event," Greenslade said.
In addition to the banners,
Greenslade said he was await-
ing a shipment of buttons that
will be handed out to retail and
restaurant employees as part of
the promotion.
"Those also will have our
slogan 'Visit and Shop Avon
Park,' he said.
Greenslade reported that at
least one downtown retail store
has noted an uptick in business
they attributed directly to the
new program.
In the works as part of the
promotion is a special drawing
with door prizes to be awarded
for those who sign up.
"We'll probably have a grand
prize drawing at our annual
banquet in May," said
Greenslade.
Although they planned no
special event to support the pro-
gram or draw additional shop-
,pers to Avon Park, Greenslade
said the group planned to make
use of existing events, such as
the Springtime on the Mall arts,
crafts and music festival.
The chamber's executive
director emphasized that all the
materials for the program has


been purchased in Avon Park.
All are done in a red and white
color scheme.
He said the "Visit and Shop
Avon Park" campaign could
well continue for some time.
"The banners could stay up
indefinitely," he said.
Meanwhile, Greenslade is
not letting any grass grow under
his feet. He will be in Tampa
next week for the 20th Annual
2005 Florida RV Supershow at
the Florida State Fairgrounds
"We have done this for the
past three years in Tampa. We
do it cooperation with
Reflections at Silver Lake and
Adelaide Shores," he said.
Greenslade will set up the
booth on Monday and stay
through next Sunday.
The show is billed as the
"largest RV show in the coun-
try" based on total square
footage and daily public atten-
dance. It covers 15 acres and
uses every building at the
Florida State Fairgrounds. On
hand are over 120 displays by
manufacturers of recreational
vehicles and more than 250
supplier booths.
"The folks at'Adelaide
Shores said they have seen
direct results from this," he
said.
The banners could start
going up today.


Girl Scouts taking orders for cookies


If you have been experienc-
ing a craving for Thin Mints or
Samoas, your wait is over.
On Friday Girl Scouts began
taking orders for their annual
cookie sale. Booth sales will
run from Friday, Feb. 25,
through Sunday, March 20.
Each box of cookies sells for
$3.
Profits are used to support
individual troop activities, pro-
grams, trips, training and sup-
port for adult volunteers, the
camping and equestrian pro-
grams at Camp Wildwood.
They also provide financial
assistance to needy.girls. ;
- Locally, Girl Scouts Heart'
of Florida Council reaches
nearly 9,000 girls each year in


Citrus, Hardee, Highlands,
Lake, Marion, Polk and Sumter
counties.
Nationally, more than 3.7
million girls and adults are

members of Girl Scouts of the
USA, which has served more
than 50 million girls since its
inception in 1912.
Girl Scout Cookies had their
earliest beginnings in the
kitchens and ovens of girl mem-
bers, with mothers volunteering
as technical advisers. Cookie
sales were begun to support
troop activities in 1917, five
years after Juliette Gordon Low
started Girl Scouting in the
United States.
The earliest mention of a
cookie sale found to date was


that of the Mistletoe Troop in
Muskogee, Okla., which baked
cookies and sold them in its
high school cafeteria as a serv-
ice project in December 1917.
The Girl Scout Cookie
Program teaches girls ages 5-17
how to work together as a team,
set goals and develop plans for
reaching them. They cultivate a
sense of business ethics and
public speaking and acquire
knowledge in marketing,
money management and cus-
tomer service.
Over the years, the Girl
Scout Cookie Program has
evolved into the nation'spre-
mier financial literacy and
entrepreneurship program for
girls.


SUSAN FOSTER/News-Sun
Members of the Thursday Girls were on hand at the Highlands Art League's Yellow House for the
opening of their exhibit 'Accessories.' The exhibition is comprised of paintings whose themes involve
hats and shoes. The group dressed for the occasion with their best hats, shoes and accessories.

State Road 25 (US 27) will
be four-laned from the West end

County Health

Department to

hold additional

vaccine clinics

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County Health Department
Director Dr. Paula Thaqi,
announced Friday that the
health department will conduct
additional flu vaccination clin-
ics for the public in Avon Park
and Lake Placid.
The clinic in Lake Placid will
be from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Wednesday at the Lake Placid
Health Department, 107 N.
Main St. The clinic in Avon
Park will be held from 9 a.m. to
5 p.m. Thursday at the Avon
Park Community Center, 310
W. Main St.
The vaccine is free to those
.with Medicare Part B, and oth-
erwise the fee is $15. Clients
will need to meet the high risk
criteria listed, but will not need
a prescription or an appoint-
ment for the flu shot. Clients
will be served on a first come,
first served basis. The health
department asks that people not
line up in advance of the clinic
opening to avoid long waits in
line, which are difficult for our
elderly residents.
According to Thaqi, "The flu


beaches and picnic grounds
area on the South side of Rex
Beach lake. They are concerned
over the possibility of eliminat-
ing the beach areas, which have
proven so valuable to local citi-
zens and tourists.
But Johnson said he doubted
that the area would be affected
to any great degree.
The Sebring council is also
interested in the prospects of
lighting the four-lane stretch in
the city limits. It was thought
secondary road funds might be
used a plan which might be
favored by the county commis-
sion but Johnson, said he
doubted that funds could be
used for that purpose.
The division engineer said


that until the survey was com-
pleted which may take
another month he could not
state when contracts for the
four-laning would be given or
when the work would start.
The access road to Sebring
from U.S. 27, in the Lake
Sebring area, has been finished
except for work on the shoul-
ders, County Commission
Chairman A.J. Tubbs said.
Tubbs also said that the com-
mission is trying to arrange a
meeting for this or next week
with Al Rogero, District 1 State
Road Department board mem-
ber, to discuss current and
future plans for road construc-
tion in the county.

clinics we sponsored in Sebring
last week went very well, and
these additional clinics are a
continuation of our efforts to
assure that our high risk resi-
dents in Lake Placid and Avon
Park have an opportunity to
receive the flu vaccine also.
Since it is still early in the flu
season, it is important that high
risk individuals are protected
from the complications of the
flu."
The Florida Department of


Health recently amended the
recommended high-risk indi-
vidual categories of those who
should receive the flu vaccine
to include children aged 6 to 35
months and household contacts
of all high-risk individuals.
High-risk individuals include:

Persons 65 years or older.
Children 6 to 35 months.
Individuals with chronic
health problems such as heart or
lung disease, asthma, diabetes


or cancer.
All household contact of
high-risk individuals.
All women who will be
pregnant during flu season.
Residents of nursing
homes and long-term care facil-
ities.
Health care workers.
M Care givers of infants
under the age of 6 months.

Concerns over reorganization answered


Mike Brown, formerly of the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, said Friday that he has
concerns about the manner in
which Sheriff Susan Benton has
reorganized the agency.
Promotions
Brown said deputies promot-
ed to ranking officer positions
should complete an exam
before getting that promotion.
Benton said new sheriff's
routinely make appointments
from the ranks to set up their
administrative staff. She said


neither she nor Brown took
such exams.
Demotions
Brown contends that Benton
unfairly demoted certain
deputies, especially by not
moving some corporals into
sergeant positions when she
abolished the corporal rank.
Benton said the only corporal
who wasn't made a sergeant
had never served as a road
supervisor and didn't have the
experience for supervision. He
was given a position with the


same pay grade, she said.
Promises
Brown said his termination
from the sheriff's office was
against Benton's campaign
promises that she would not fire
anyone.
Benton said she made no
such promise, and that she
never would have a problem
with him working there. Since
then, however, she believes that
having him as a supervisor in
her administration would not
work well.


BROWN
Continued from 1A
already decided to dissolve the
Juvenile Division, including his
post as head of that division.
Brown said he told Benton
his aspirations had not changed,
but promised if she kept him on
staff in a "meaningful posi-
tion," he would serve her in a
dedicated and loyal way, doing
everything in his power to make
her tenure a success.
He said she, in turn, criti-
cized his management style and
pointed out errors in his work.
Brown wanted to agree to dis-
agree, and she said she had to
consider whether to have him as


BANK
Continued from 1A
Tim Lethbridge and Sheriff's
Lt. Bobby Duncan were called
in to handle the negotiations but
despite repeated attempts they
were unable to get a response
from Etheredge inside the
.house.
The sheriff's investigators
used a "throw phone" to try and
communicate with the suspect
inside the house. He never
answered the phone and never
communicated with the
deputies. A "throw phone" is
used in a standoff, or hostage
situations to talk with suspects.
Shortly after 6:30 p.m. law-
men used tear gas to finally get
Etheredge out of the house. He
was transported by ambulance
due to the effects of the gas.
The sheriff's office has been
working to air out the house
with fans to dispel the smell of
tear gas. The female resident
will be staying with friends
until the smell is gone and the
house is habitable again.
Highlands County .Sheriff
Susan Benton had words of
praise for everyone involved in
bringing the incident to a peace-
ful end.
"The whole thing started
with the good work from the
Avon Park Police Department,
getting the information out
quickly and accurately, which
allowed everybody to have a
heads-up. The Sebring officers
were the ones who spotted them
and then we all just did our job
after that," she said.
Those sentiments were
echoed by Mercurio, who
pointed out that having all of
the affected law enforcement
agencies on the same radio fre-
quency provided them a huge
advantage.
"We're constantly monitor-


a supervisor.
Brown got in touch with her
again just before the holidays.
She allegedly said she had still
not made a decision on his posi-
tion, but he would have a job.
Then on Dec. 30, Brown
learned he might be fired. He
met with Benton at 4:30 p.m.
Jan. 4, with Mike Durham,
sheriff's office legal counsel.
Benton didn't have anything for
him as a supervisor, but would
keep him as a deputy. Brown
wanted to remain working with
the sheriff's office, but Benton
allegedly said she did not think
it was best because of concerns
he would campaign against her
for sheriff for' the next three
years.


ing what is occurring in the
neighboring jurisdictions so we
can assist each other," he said.
"This is the spirit of coopera-
tion we have."
Other law enforcement agen-
cies also gave aid including the
Lake Placid Police Department.
Florida. Highway Patrol, the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement and an agent from
the Federal Bureau of
Investigation.
Judy Orihuela of the Federal
Bureau of Investigations'
Miami office said they suspect-
ed the four might possibly be
connected with the so-called
"Knotty Head Clique."
Orihuela said some of the
methods used in the Avon Park
heist pointed toward the gang.


Then she allegedly said it
was in his best interest to
resign.
"I told her, 'in good con-
science, I can't do that,' "
Brown said.
After that, she allegedly said
she would have to offer him ter-
mination, with a 30-day grace
period to seek new employ-
ment. Brown thought and
prayed about it later at home,
then'called Durham to make the
termination effective Tuesday
afternoon. Brown turned in his
property Friday morning.
Brown said he didn't want a
"handout" and wanted to "walk
out.with his dignity."


That group is suspected of
being involved in more than 25
bank robberies throughout the
Sunshine State. As of
December, the gang's take was
said to be as much as $500,000.
Mercurio, while not tying the
two together, said local law
enforcement agencies were
looking very closely to deter-
mine whether or not Friday's.
armed robbery might have bee i'
connected to the Dec., 14, 2004,
holdup at the SouthTrust Bank
at 2631 U.S. 27 South in
Sebring.
"Their method was similar
and that will be looked at," he
said.
On Monday, detectives from
all of the affected agencies plan
to meet and review the case.

the Sebring Rotary Charities
Inc., a group initiated by the
club to work toward local
needs.
Any donations for the tsuna-
mi victims must be marked on
the checks as for "tsunami relief
efforts" or "Shelter Boxes."
Andrews said every dime
marked as such will be used for
the boxes. All donations are
tax-deductible.
A single, complete Shelter
Box is supported by a tax-
deductible donation of $900.
Requests have been made for
many hundreds more Shelter
Boxes to help tsunami victims.
Donations from businesses,
individuals, civic, religious and
Rotarian groups support the
efforts of the Shelter Box Trust,
housed in Cornwell, England,
from where all shipments are
sent.
Requests from recognized
international aid agencies are
processed through the office of
Shelter Box Trust. Shipments
are airlifted by commercial,
humanitarian, and governmen-
tal organizations usually at
no charge to Shelter Box.


ROMONA WASHINGTON/News-Sun.
Rotary Club of Sebring President Dan Andrews (standing at left)
accepts $1,000 from Rotarian Terrill Morris to go toward the pur-
chase of Shelter Boxes for the tsunami victims in Asia. Morris col-
lected the money from friends in Avon Park and Sebring. Before the '
club's board meeting was over Friday, the club agreed to give an
additional $1,800 toward the purchase of boxes. With additional
money pledge and collected from Rotarians, the club has already
been able to send four of the $900 boxes to help the victims.
Rotarians (seated, at left) Aubrey Gardner, Bob Wood and Dan
Feathers listen.


The Rotary district has
already sent about 20 boxes.
"This community has been
strapped because of the hurri-
canes, but it has been respon-
sive to helping the tsunami vic-
tims," Andrews said, adding
that he believes being able to
send 10 boxes from the local


club is possible.
Anyone who would like to
help fund a Shelter Box through
Sebring Rotary Charities Inc.
can do so by sending a check to
P.O. Box 527, Sebring, FL
33871. Remember to mark the
check for either "tsunami relief
efforts" or "Shelter Boxes."

Working down

on the farm
I loved this assignment. In a
single morning at Henscratch
Farms Vineyard and Winery I
gathered over two dozen free
range eggs, helped bottled
blackberry port, pruned two
grape vines (well, I had help
on the first one because
SJohanne Lauchman,
Henscratch's owner, was
showing me how to prune
properly on the first one), and
finally I got to pick strawber-
ries.
I also had the pleasure of
tasting the range of Henscratch
wines, and time to soak up the
atmosphere.
This was one job where
everything was almost too
good to be true. The weather
was perfect, the pace was
leisurely, machines worked,
and animals cooperated. Also,
the hurricanes and harvest had
come and gone, so the worst
of the high pressure days were
in the past.
Winter is the time farms can
take a breather, gathering ener-
gy for the burst of spring.
I am sure there are days on
every farm. no matter how
small, when a person doesn't
have time to think, or actually
pray s for a nervous breakdown
because a month in a padded
room seems better that another
minute on the tractor. But on
beautiful daJ in January, with
the hens in a good mood and

Henscratch Farms


owners turn hobby


into business


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID -During
the waning years of the 20th
century Johanne Lauchman was
taking the Master Gardener
course at the Highlands Agri-
Civic Center.
She listened raptly during
one 20-minute class when Jerry
Million, a local grape grower
and founder of the Highlands
County Grape Growers
Association, waxed eloquent on
the subject of grape growing in
Florida.
Lauchman was so smitten
she rushed home to her hus-
band, Christopher King, and
before you could say Concord
Grape, they were experiment-
ing with vines and dreaming
about the future.
Although they were already
very successful in business, one
thing led to another, and before
they knew it had happened,
they'd turned a hobby into a
new business, and the new busi-
ness into their life.
Today Henscratch Farms has
15 acres of grape vines, berry
plants and vegetables already
planted and will add another 10
acres this year.
It has a small winery that
turns out about 4,000 gallons of
hand pressed wine a year, 101:
egg laying chickens, a store
which sells homegrown; home-
made jams, jellies and wines, as
well as other wine related items.
There will be more. A finch
cage, a fish pond, and an ice-
cream parlor are planned, as is-a
walking trail
The atmosphere at the farm is
%er% ieli\.ed Lauchnian- and
King ha'e activel y sought'toteb


nostalgic, and not just nostalgic,
but authentic as well.
For example, one afternoon
Lauchman arrived at the farm to
find her husband hard at work
on a fence she had no knowl-
edge of.
When she asked what was he
building, he replied that it was a
pen for his horse for when he
rides to % ork.
Now when he rides his horse
to the farm, he lets'it loose to
nibble the grass, creating a One
horsepower law n mower.
Nothing goes to waste,
e'.erihing has more than.one
use.
For example, Lauchman and
King are experimenting with
.planting pineapples in the
ground under the grapevines.
The object is to make use of
wasted space. The pineapples
produce another cash crop and
the vines, supported by the wire
trellises, will shade the pineap-
ples during the hot Florida sum-
mer.
The grape vine trimmings
left behind by pruning have
proven to have cash value as
well. They are desired by
crafters for their old-fashioned
gnarly appearance, and sought
out by chefs who are smoking
meat using grape wood. As a
result, Henscratch gathers the
them to sell.
Of .course, Henscratch
revolves around grapes.
When the time came to
choose which grape varieties to
plant, the decision was simple
Lauchman reported. Especially
after finding out about two
i\pes of grapes which Were.

though they were pushed over twice.


Scuppernmong grapes. Both vari-
eties have been successfully
grown for more than four cen-
turies.
These grapes are not harvest-
ed in bunches. Instead, the pick-
er wiggles his fingers in a group
of grapes and they fall singly
into collection buckets.
Those grapes, which are to
become wine, are taken to the
brand new winery an old
fashioned seven ring silo, with a
new fangled sprayed foam insu-
lation inside.
Henscratch still produces
wine at a rate that allows for a
hand operation throughout the
process.
The wine presses are hand
driven, the bottles are washed
and filled by hand, then corked
by a machine that is run by
hand. -

All Star Pac & Ship




packs and ships


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
iNews-Sunt
AVON PARK All Star Video, an independ-
ent store which rents videos, and is located in the
old Kash n' Karry plaza on the corer of Stryker
Road and U.S. 27, has been in serving the local
community for almost 20 years. No news there.
What is different, is that the owners, Brian
Shelton and his mother, Cindy Limpose, in
expanding the store, have created a new business.
Called All Star Pac & Ship, Shelton and
Limpose can wrap, and send by UPS ground
shipment, just about any package, just about any-
where.
"We were trying to open up right before
(Hurricane) Charley hit," Shelton said the other
day. "Instead, we opened up right after
(Hurricane) Jeanne.
"It was a natural thing to do, I needed to
expand the video store, but didn't need all the
space I added on to it. The question was, what
will we do with the space, and this seemed the
perfect answer, especially since Mailbox Etc.
closed and there was no where for anyone to go
to ship things.


"Right now we work with UPS only, but I'm
working on getting Fed-Ex too.
"We don't just ship. We also have boxes and
tape, the basics you need to send stuff out. Next
year we'll have a much larger accessory selec-
tion, this year it's the basics."
Which doesn't mean. All Star Pac & Ship,
restricts itself to the easy packing jobs. They'll
try to accommodate any need, regardless of the
shape or challenge.
UPS does have some limitations, however. For
example, an 150 pound weight limit, and 165
square inches maximum in volume size.
A package can be delivered anywhere in
Florida within a day, generally for $40 less than
next day delivery.
Rates are based on a formula determined by
zip code, weight and size. Most deliveries can be
made within five business days, and often in
much less time.
It is best to get packages to All Star Pac & Ship
by 4 p.m. week days, as the UPS carrier arrives
between 4:15 and 4:30 p.m. and cannot wait for
late arrivals.
For more information call 453-0501.

and service to Florida citizens
with disabilities.

ognize those who have not only
met the legal compliances of
the Americans with

science effort to be "disability-
friendly."'

FARM
Continued from 11A
Smy tongue, the life seemed'
pretty idyllic.
- I wish I could report action.
It would be nice if I could
spin a story about a wild flurry
of feathers and wings, a story
of barely surviving a pecking
beak or talons (in my telling)
like razor blades as I tried to
lift a hen from her nest.
But these birds were quite
polite, if a little put out.
Most of the hens endured
the indignity of being hefted
about with little more than an
annoyed squawk, and some
even got out of the way under
their own steam with nothing
more than "tut, tut, tut."
The wine from this year's
grape harvest had already been
made, so I can't regale you
with a tale of falling into a vat
and having to swim for my life
all night, hanging onto a canoe
paddle with all ny dwindling
strength (it could have hap-
pened, at Henscratch they do
use canoe paddles to stir the
wine).
I can't describe an exploding
vat, with liquid and pulp flying
everywhere, landing on walls
and in people's hair with little
splatty sounds, even though
that did happen once when
Lauchman and her husband,
Christopher King, were experi-

Employment Placement

developed an outstanding job
placement program for people
with disabilities; The Able Trust
Award for Outstanding
Entrepreneur, which recognizes
an individual with disability
who has shown proven
advancements in his or her self-
owned business; Employer of

meeting with a wine made
from Jaboticabas. Sadly, it did-
n't happen when I was there.
My city-boyness did shine
through though, when I lifted
my first chicken and counted
13 eggs.
You see, I thought the chick-
en had laid all of the eggs, and
all I could picture was the poor
bird producing eggs like a car-
toon machine gun; egg, egg,
egg ... whap, whap, whap. It
hurt just to think about it.
Lauchman corrected my
misunderstanding. She pointed
to two roosting sites, each at an
opposite end.of the shelf. One
variety of hen lays here, she
explained, the other one lays
down there. The hens never
mix, and when most of them
feel an egg coming on, they
come in, lay it, and go right
back outside again.
Hens seem to have lost their
loving feeling.
However, as if to make up
for this sad fact, some hens
have become over protective.
They will sit on anyone's egg,
and even on empty nests. Often
they have to be shooed away.
Collected eggs are not
washed. This is because they
arrive in this world with an
enzyme coating that protects
them. As long as the coating is
in place, the egg will remain
fresh for about 30 days, if kept
in a sheltered, cool place -
not a refrigerator.


Media Award, which recognizes
a member of the media for his
or her innovative promotion of
the employment of people with
disabilities through the use of
print, radio, television or elec-
tronic media in Florida; and
Youth Leader Award, which
recognizes a young adult (age
15-21) with a disability who has
shown outstanding leadership,
community service or advocacy
to help advance the efforts or
raise positive awareness' about
Florida's disability community.
This youth should serve as a
model leader for other young
adults with disabilities.

This was the first chicken Tuffley lifted at Henscratch Farms. Note
his tentative style. Later in the morning he was providing more sup-
port from the bottom, and he and the birds were more relaxed
together.


Lauchman researched her
choice of chickens as thor-
oughly as she looked into
grape vines, finally selecting
Rhode Island Reds and Barred
Rocks. Both birds are
American varieties, and are
good layers as well as good
eating.
For fun, and the chickens
were brought in to be fun -
after all how can you have a
farm on Henscratch Road if
you don't have any hens -
Easter Egg Chickens were
added to the mix. They are
called that because they lay


green eggs.
The crowning moment of
the day, however, was picking
strawberries. That's mainly
because I ate every last one of
them. And there is nothing bet-
ter than sun warmed fruit, full
of flavor, and a chin that's.

w. -. VA Outpatient Clinic director to


Hurricanes put a delay in project


By BRUCE VanJAARSVELD
Special to the News-Sun
The Airport
Road widening
project is an
important proj-
ect for two rea-
sons:Iit will
boost driver
safety, and it
will ease traffic tension during
Race Week.
This multi-million dollar,
multi-phase project will run
Airport Road directly across
Haywood Taylor Boulevard,
connecting it to the airport's
South Access Road and elimi-
nating a dangerous curve and
another sharp turn. The road
will be widened from two lanes
to four.
Progress on road projects is
dependent upon two things:
Cooperation from Mother
Nature and the quality of work
performed in the preparatory
stages.
As roads are outside, they are
subject to the elements, and
2004 was an unusual year in
that a number of intense hurri-
canes hit the Heartland. Road
and Bridge crews that would
have otherwise worked on
Airport Road were instructed to
clear 350,000 cubic yards of
debris, and as a consequence,
this project has suffered a set
back of several months.
The time line for Airport
Road has been revised and
shared with the Airport
Authority and the Sebring
Raceway.
Airport Road will not be fin-
ished before the 12 Hours of
Sebring, but there are two other
safe, paved points of access to

the track. I believe this project
will be finished on or before the
new September deadline.
Although road projects
sometimes seem disorganized,
they are in fact, highly organ-
ized.
Each phase of a road project
is like a link in a chain. No one
link is any more or less impor-
tant than the one that comes
before it. You can't lay sub-base
and base until water is drained
from the ditches. You can't
landscape until the road is
paved.
Roads must be built in incre-
ments and "speeding things up"
only compromises the integrity
of the project and that's not a
compromise the county Road


and Bridge Department is will-
ing to make.
No one likes the inconven-
ience of construction, but
everyone expects to drive on
safe, smooth roads. We aren't
willing to exchange quality for
speed, and we can't control
Mother Nature. What we can
control is our response to her,
and you have my personal guar-
antee that the Road and Bridge
Department is working tireless-
ly to construct a safe, four-lane
road that will be completed as
soon as humanly possible.

Bruce VanJaarsveld is
Highlands County Road and
Bridge Department supervisor:

Special to the News-Sun
On Dec. 1, 2004, veterans
living in Florida's Heartland
were given an early Christmas
present by the Veterans
Administration ... a communi-
ty-based VA Outpatient Clinic
in a free-standing location in

It is estimated that more than
2,500 veterans will be served
by this Sebring facility to be
headed by experienced health
care professionals.
Susan Scigliano has been
named as the director with Dr.
David Jones as head of medical
services.
On Saturday, Scigliano will
address the members of the
South Central Florida Military
Officers Association of
America at its general member-
ship luncheon at the Sebring

New PR director
Special to the News-Sun
ST. PETERSBURG A
longtime government commu-
nicator and Operation Desert

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


LAURA'S LOOK
Laura Ware


-> A sad day


"Copyrighted Material

Available from Commercial News Providers"


Heresy is not a

divine act
Editor:
As a Christian, I was offend-
ed to see the front page of the
Tampa Tribune's article, "A
Divine Dive," "Tarpon Springs
Welcomes Thousands to 99th
Epiphany Celebration."
The message of the cross (at
least as I know it in the Bible)
is not one of a water relay race
or an egg hunt for the cross or
some sort of baton. It's been
said that it was "not the nails
that held Christ on the cross,
but his love for you and me."
In Philippians 2:8 the Bible
says that "he (Jesus) humbled
himself and became obedient to
death even death on a
cross!" Colossians 1:20 says
"and through him to reconcile
to himself all things, whether
things on earth or things in,
heaven, by making peace '
through his blood, shecLdn the
cross." Throughout scriptures,
the cross is a holy symbolism
of Christ's love for us.
Archbishop Demetrios is
seen in the article kissing and
holding the head of a young
man named McAdams, suppos-
edly blessing him for getting to
the cross first in the water as if
being rewarded like a hunting
dog retrieving a duck. This act
is disrespectful of our Lord
Jesus Christ and what He did
for all of us on the Cross.
This is pure heresy. The
Cross is not a water toy.

Many help the

needy families
Editor:
Adopt-A-Family is about
families helping families.
During this holiday season
families from Highlands
County and as far away as
Michigan did exactly that, help
families. What a wonderful
feeling to know we live in the
best place in the world and are
so fortunate to have people
who care about what matters in
our community.
This thank you letter is inad-
equate in truly conveying our
deep feelings towards the peo-
ple of Highlands County who
came forward tq contribute to
Adopt-A-Family by buying
gifts for a child, fund raising,
donating money, time and
delivering food baskets to
assure that hundreds of chil-
dren and families would have a
Merry Christmas. If you were a
child or family that was a recip-
ient of these generous gifts, you
were blessed. If you were a
giver, you were truly blessed.
We received a phone call
from an advisor from a high
school in Michigan, Potterville.
High School. Youth Advisory


Council realized the trials and
tribulations families have gone
through- because of the hurri-
canes and needed some extra
help for Christmas. The stu-
dents from another state spon-
sored a dance to raise funds for
gifts and food for families.
That's what it's all about, peo-
ple helping people.
Thank you to Tina Gottis
from Highlands Today for
advertisements and to the
News-Sun for Jan Merop's
beautiful article. We would also
like to thank all the wonderful'
folks that took on a child to
adopt and the many businesses
that took on larger families
from: South Highlands
Independent Bank, Lykes
Brothers, Sebring Middle
School staff and FFA, Lake
Placid High School FFA,
Sebring Post Office, APCI,
Wild Turkey, Highlands Ridge,
Florida Hospital Heartland
Division, Mount Olive AME
Church in Avon Park, Pinecrest
Ladies Golf Association,
Mom's Club, Spring Lake
Presbyterian Church, Ladies of
Woodhaven, Adelaide Shores,
Heartland Home Health,
Prescott Lawn Service, Avon
Park Lutheran Mission Chprch,
Kiwanis, families' and individ-
uals' gifts dropped off at the
newspaper, school or left for
the U.S. Postal Service.
Thank you for everyone who
gave a monetary donation.
Thank you to everyone who
was involved. Our whole heart
and deepest gratitude to all
those who helped this year.
Without you and your willing-
'ness to give and help Adopt-A-
Family would not work. God's
blessings to you in 2005:
Bob and Kathie Weed
Sebring

Can't wait until

next dinner

Editor:
Have you ever gone some
place, somewhere and enjoyed
being there so much you know
you have to bide the time to go
back.
Meeting old and making new
friends, talking the talk of cur-
rent and old topics. I did!
Back on Nov. 16-18, 2004, I
had the time enjoyed by all at
Firemen's Field that three girls
organized and pulled more than
100 volunteers into a great
show of Highlands County
agriculture for children, third-
grade, of county schools.
I enjoyed the steak dinner
baked potato, green beans,
drink and dessert so much, they
should have it more often, but
think of all the work so I'll set-
tle for a year! Hope to be here
so I can be a volunteer in 2005.
Thanks girls: Darlene
Phypers, Danielle Daum and
Judy Bronson. I had a great
time. Can't wait!

Thanks are

appreciated
Editor:
An open letter to Bettye
Hart's fifth-grade class at Park
Elementary School:
While sorting through my
daily mail delivery, which can
be a sizable bundle and usually
quite mundane (i.e., typically
consisting of bills, appeals and
other business correspondence,
etc.) I came across the letter
you and your students sent.
It was truly a pleasant sur-
prise to receive your letter and I
enjoyed this unexpected depar-
ture from the norm. I've posted
your letter on a wall outside my
office for others to share and
enjoy.
Many of us who work in the
Disaster Field Office here in
Orlando are from other places
and have traveled here from as
far away as Hawaii and Alaska.
Moreover, there are dozens of
different : organizations that
have come to Florida to partner
with the state on this recovery
operation. The quilt work that
makes up our team consists of
other federal agencies, the mil-
itary, other states (i.e., some
from as far away as California),
volunteer organizations (i.e.,
Red Cross, Salvation Army,
etc.),.and people like you.
Indeed, the persons and fam-
ilies impacted by the hurricane
have received a lot of help from
spontaneous volunteers work-
ing in a neighborhood-helping-
neighbor spirit, had it not been
for the efforts of spontaneous
volunteers, the disaster impact
could have been much worse.
From all of us here, we thank
you for your kind words and
your kind actions. We wish the
best.

Dancing Queens

bring much joy
Editor:
I would like to tell you about
the talented "Dancing Queens"
of Sun 'N Lake of Lake Placid.
This group of all ages, under
the direction of the beautiful
Jean Penrod, practice line danc-
ing every Thursday night and it
is such a joy to watch them.
They also give of their time and
energy to perform at our func-
tions.
My thanks to all of "these
girls" for the joy they bring to
me.

in history

A few days ago Dave Barry,
humor columnist and author,
announced he was hanging up
his laptop. He was getting out
of the column business, he said,
before he came to the conclu-
sion that he used to be funnier.
As radio talk show host and
News-Sun staff writer Barry
Foster would put it, it was a sad
day in newspaper history.
I enjoy reading Dave Barry's
columns and books, at least
most of the time. Yes, there
were some times when his
humor got a little juvenile,
where I would, instead of
chuckling, respond with some-
thing like "Eeeewwww." That
could be because I am female,
however, since my sons never
saw what was gross about those
jokes.
My sons like reading Barry's
work as much as I do. This has
resulted in some profound
mother-son time. Picture, if
you will, one of us (often I)
with a book or newspaper in
hand, choking to form coherent
words through guffaws as we
read something Barry has writ-
ten, while the other two are
doubled over in laughter. It is
one of those things I hold fond-
ly something my boys and I
could enjoy together without
argument.
Dave Barry actually was the
subject of one of my columns.
I wrote of a time when John
had taken one of our Dave
Barry paperbacks to school.
For reasons that are still
shrouded in mystery, his
friends decided to sand the
cover of the book, making it
look like Dave Barry is sitting
in the middle of a snowstorm.
They also did something to the
back cover, but I never quite
got an answer for that abuse
either.
After that column came out,
a reader gave me a copy of one
of Barry's books. The note that
came with it said it had
belonged to her daughter, who
was also a Barry fan. The
daughter had passed away, and
the mother was sure she would
have wanted me to have the
book.
I still have the book and the
note. It is one of the most
touching gifts I have ever
received.
I thought about sending
Barry the column in question,
but never got around to it. I'm
not sure what he would have
done with it hopefully
laughed about it, since it was
meant to be funny.
I have mixed feelings about
Barry retiring from the column
business. As a fan, it's a blow.
Another columnist I enjoy is
biting the dust. Not only that,
as a columnist myself, I found
myself studying Barry's writ-
ings. While my humor will *
never match his, I hope I have,
learned a thing or two about the
craft by seeing what someone
who knows how to use the lan-
guage does with it.
On the other hand, I am not
without sympathy. A weekly
deadline is not a little thing.
The pressure to not only stay
good, but get better, is always
at the back of your mind. And
humor, while a great tool for a
columnist, isn't always an easy
one to wield. Barry has spent
decades being funny, meeting
deadlines, trying to top himself.
I am in no way trying to
imply that I am a columnist of
Dave Barry's level. For one
thing, I've never tried to set
Pop Tarts on fire with a toaster.
For another, I've never had a
sewage-lifting-station dedicat-
ed in my honor (and I can live
without such an honor, OK?).
I guess what I'm trying to
say is that there are at least
three fans who are going to
miss Dave Barry's amusing
musings in the future. But I
understand that sometimes you
have to do what is best for you,
even if it sends your fans into
fits of withdrawal.

History Lesson
15 Years Ago
Jan. 9, 1990: The Lake
Placid boys hit seven 3-

50th Annual Harder Hall Women's Invitational


Pressel hangs on for title


Turns away rallies by Granada,
Hoagland for two-shot victory
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING A day that started out looking
like an easy victory lap for Morgan Pressel at the
50th Annual Harder Hall Women's Invitational
ended up with her hanging on for dear life.
Pressel, who teed off in Saturday's final round
with a six-shot lead over Julieta Granada,
watched that advantage dwindle down to just one
stroke over Granada and a hard-charging Ashley
Hoagland after 15 holes before gaining back a
stroke to win by two with a four-day score of 9-
under.
"I knew Julieta would give me a run for her
money," the 16-year-old Pressel, of Boca Raton,
said after posting the best score since Beth
Bauer's record 16-under in 2000. "I knew she
wouldn't just roll over and give it to me."
Hoagland, a 22-year-old senior at Wake Forest
who is from Palmetto, also gave Pressel a run,
getting an eagle on No. 6 and three straight
birdies starting on No. 13 to get to within a stroke
of the lead.
Things got really interesting on No. 14 when

victory for


Dragons
BY CHUCK MYRON

LAKE PLACID It was
Frostproof that used stall tactics
most coaspiAe.pusly, but Lake Placid
that us;t rhecYi'.'mpit successfully in
Friday' hniht< Dirict 10-3A show-
down.
After the Bulldogs stood around
for two minutes in the second quar-
ter, the Green Dragons used a series
of sharp passes to stymie a half-
court trap for a full minute in the
fourth quarter en route to a 56-49
win.
Lake Placid "That kind of took
56 some of the air out of
their sails," Lake
Frostproof Placid head coach
4 Steve Young said. "It
worked well for us.
Up Next It's probably the best
At Avon Park we've run it this year
on Thursday so far."
After Cedric Cox
had made one of his five 3-pointers
for the Bulldogs (4-6 overall, 1-1 in
the district) with 3:19 to go, the
Green Dragons (8-4, 2-1) opted to
deplete the clock and sit on a 50-43
lead.
Despite a frantic effort to either
steal or foul by the Frostproof
defense, Jan Valk scored on a put-
back with 2:19 to go, further icing
victory.
Frostproof head coach Gilberto
Castillo said he went to his second-
quarter slow-down tactics, which
brought the game to a standstill, to


Pressel got pinned behind a yardage bush off the
tee and ended up making a bogey after missing a
6-foot putt.
Meanwhile, Granada, an 18-year-old from
Paraguay and the defending U.S. Junior champi-
on, and Hoagland both made birdies for a two-
shot swing that put Pressel at 8-under. Gr.inad. at
minus-7 and Hoagland another shot bjck.
Hoagland, who started the day seven shots out
of the lead, birdied No. 15 to tie Granada one shot
back at 7-under, but Pressel gained some needed
breathing room on the par-5 17th hole after a
monster drive left her just 180 yards from the
green.
Granada and Hoagland were both forced to lay
up short of the pond in front of the green, but
Pressel powered an 11-wood pin high just five
feet left of the putting surface.
"I hit (the drive) a little further left than I was
basically planning on, but if it was a little further
right I would have had some trouble bec.,use I
have a really big gap in my bag between my 11-
wood and my 3-wood, and I was just far enough
where I could get my 11-wood there," Pressel
said. "I swung so hard at it trying to get it there."
Pressel said she never even considered not

Second-half surge

propels Sebring
By SCOTT DRESSED
Sports Editor
SEBRING The Sebring Blue Streaks were
able to ignore the smoke, music and the smell of
barbecue wafting into Firemen's Field from the
barbecue festival in the parking lot Friday night
well enough to stay undefeated.
Two second-half goals from their team cap-
tains lifted the Streaks to a 2-1 win over Hardee,
keeping a goose egg in the loss column for
Sebring with a 3-0-4 record. .. .
/Sebring coach Tim Boulay said it wasn't any
halftime speech or adjustment that made the dif-
ference after his team fell behind 1-
0 in the final minute of the first half Sebring
"We just played our game," he
said. "They buckled down and
played pretty well. Obviously, hav- Hardee
ing three weeks off, we had to get
that rust out." l
Neither team was at full Up Next
strength. The Streaks started third- At Lehigh on
string goalkeeper Paul Ashley, and Tuesday
the Wildcats (4-7-1) were missing
three players, including starting senior goalkeep-
er Yovany Arana and senior Humberto Peidad,
Hardee's best player, according to coach Ron
Kline.
While Hardee spent most of the first half on
the attack, the Sebring defense did a good job of
keeping the pressure off Ashley, although he did
have to make one spectacular diving save on an
Andrew Cisneros shot in the 36th minute.
"Paul's got some good skills," Boulay said of
'Ashley, who had eight saves. "We missed him on
defense, but I was glad we had him in goal."

SEBRING The Blue Streaks
were loaded for bear Friday night,
but as the game got under way it
quickly became evident that the
winless Palmetto Ridge Bears had
little growl in their basketball game,
falling 61-27 to the Streaks.
Kyle Hoffner poured in 11 of his
game-high 17 points in the first
quarter as Sebring rolled to a com-
manding 23-0 lead at the first stop.
Leading 25-0, Kenny Chute hit two
free throws with 7:10 left before
halftime to give the Bears their first
points. Sebring was scoring nearly


every time it had the ball, and got a
bevy of turnovers from the pressing
defense.

Sebring improved to 7-4

District 14-4A.

At Riverdale said the defensive
on Tuesday pressure was "still
not good enough."
"We just use those type of games
to work on things that you need to
work on to get ready for the dis-


trict," Harris said, "because that's
what it's about, this is a district
team. We were very pleased.
"We put some new things in yes-
terday and had a chance to work on
them tonight. That's what you look
for, a good opportunity to do it;
you've got to take advantage of it
while you can."
Sebring cruised to a 39-2 lead in
the second quarter and the coaching
staffs of both schools agreed to run
the clock without stopping it.

Mulberry


knocks off


Avon Park

BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun Correspondent
AVON PARK When
Patrick Menzies walked off of
the Avon Park court Friday
night, the 6-foot-6 junior had a
lot to brag about, but not much
to be happy about.
Not only did Menzies open
lp a whole can of efficient,
fundamental shooting and
defense, but the Red Devils'
big man also erupted the home
crowd with two huge dunks
and one alley-oop from team-
mate Anthony Dickerson in the
third and fourth quarters.
However, that was only a
temporary solution to the nag-
ging problem that was the
Mulberry offense and nothing
could be done to stop a late
Panthers' run and a huge
momentum swing in the final
period gave the visitors a 60-50
District 10-3A victory.
Mental mistakes are what
head coach Eric Zwayer said
caused the loss.
"A lot of it's mental. If you
don't make the right switches,
the right calls all the time
they're going to make easy
shots. And I think we fouled a
couple to many times and gave
up easy layups, but that's going
to be something we're going to
work on."
Menzies finished with 15
points and 20 rebounds along
with seven blocks and three
steals to lead the Devils (2-7
overall, 0-2 in the district).
"He's a real good player,"
Zwayer said. "I've been telling
him that it's his time to step up
and play. And he knows it. It's
his time to step up and play and
he did it tonight."
Menzies went to work early,
draining a 3-pointer to open the
game, the first of a chain of
Mulberry Red Devil bombs

SDevaris Strange,
and Dickerson
Up Next each had 3-point-
At Frostproof ers, leading Avon
on Tuesday Park to a 14-11
lead.
The ball seemed to have
found a home in Avon Park's
hands during that span, as the
Devils recorded 15 first-quarter
rebounds and two steals.
Commodore had 12 points
while Strange knocked down
three 3-pointers on the way to
10 points. That trend carried
over into the second quarter
where the Devils out-rebound-
ed Mulberry 12-7, ripping off
five extra steals.
But the Panthers nibbled
away at the deficit and, after
another Comedore 3-pointer,
only trailed 28-20 at halftime.
"I just told them we have
two more quarters to play,"
Zwayer said of his halftime
speech. "I told them that we
cannot become complacent. I
don't think we did, I just think
that we made too many mental
mistakes."
By the time Zwayer's team
scored again, Mulberry had
already grabbed the lead, going
on a 10-0 run to open the sec-
ond half for a 30-28 advantage.
The lead traded hands two
'more times and when the
: Panthers led 33-31, Mulberry's
- Antawn Holmes created a
whole lot of mayhem with an
emphatic dunk to energize the
- few Mulberry fans.
Menzies retaliated with a
- slam of his own and the hook-
up between Menzies and
Dickerson lit the Red Devil
gym up, forcing the officials to
stop the game momentarily.
The game hit another break
when Holmes was flipped on.


another attempted dunk with
four minutes left. By then the
Panthers were clinging to a 45-
38 lead and the two ensuing
free throws made it a nine-
point lead.
Mulberry finally put things
away by hitting 10 more foul
shots in the final minutes to
Sseal the win.
"I think our guys played
hard, I think we're making pos-
itive steps," Zwayer added. "I
think defensively we played
really good in the first half,
gave up 20. We're getting bet-
ter and it's going to benefit us
later in the district."

Wrestling Tournament. Fox eventually won by pin. The tourney was not complete at press time.

Wrestling


Youngest Spiegel takes mat in


tourney named after his brother


BY JENNA PONTIUS
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING In October of his senior year in
1994, Sebring wrestler Seth Spiegel was in a ter-
rible go-cart accident.
He was riding in the dark and pulled out onto
a road when a pick-up truck struck and killed
him.
Seth was 17 years old and a great wrestler. In
his memory, there was a wrestling meet named
after him called the Seth Spiegel Memorial
Invitational.
Every year, the whole Spiegel family attends
the meet, which was held Saturday and was not
complete at press time. A few years after Seth's
death, the middle son, Sean, wrestled in this
meet.

do before being able to handle a
team of Sebring's caliber. The
Streaks led 43-8 during half-
time, but took it a little easier
on the Bears in the second half
with the clock running non-
stop. SebOng's, utter domina-
tionf'"f ith .backboards was a
-big factor in the game.
Senior Luke Birge led the
way in rebounding for Sebring
with seven, three steals and 7
points. Senior guard Greg Perry
also had three steals and Blake
Sanders finished with five
points and five assists.
About the only bright spot
for the Bears was the 3-point
shooting of Joey Anderson,
who hit four long bombs to fin-
ish with 12 points. Anderson hit
three of his 3-pointers in the
third period and the Bears shot
a very respectable 54 percent
from beyond the arc.
Regardless of which group of
players Harris had in the game,
'Sebring flourished both offen-
sively and defensively. Senior
center Kevin Dixon scored a
basket in each quarter and
hauled down six rebounds
despite limited playing time.


STALL
Continued from 1B
inside, but they just kept bomb-
ing away with the 3-pointers,
and they kept making them,"
Young said of Frostproof,
which hit eight treys. "I think
the key (to the run), was they
finally missed some shots, to be
honest with you. They missed a
few shots and we came down
and converted, and just kind of
got that little bit opened up."
Quay Crenshaw, the Green
Dragons' outside threat, came
alive during the fourth quarter
run and finished with three
treys and 15 points to equal
Valk for the team high.
"He's learning all this stuff,
and he's done a good job and
picked it up very quick," Young
said of the junior, who missed
all of last season with injury.
"We need his 3, obviously. He's
a good spot-up shooter, and we
want him to take those shots.
He hit a couple of real key ones
tonight."
While Crenshaw heated up
outside, Valk continued his
dominance inside, grabbing 15
rebounds while matched up
against freshman Calvin
Stoudemire, half-brother of
NBA star Amare. '
"He took a few outside shots
and he wasn't hitting real well
tonight, but once we got the ball
down inside, he really took his
toll," Young said. "And he was
hard on the offensive boards. I


Now, to honor his brother, the
next youngest son, Shannon, will
be be the next Spiegel to take the
mat in the meet named for Seth.
U: Shannon is now 15 years old

older brother.
"I've been a wrestler all my
SHANNON life and this meet means the most
to me and it's my most important
meet," he said.
As a freshman he has doubts, but is hoping to
take his weight class and win like Seth had done
in the past.
"'As a wrestler, he couldn't be touched his jun-
ior year," said Jeff Cantwell, a teacher at Sebring
High School, said of Seth.


JEFF CANTWELL/News-Sun
Sebring's Tyler Caton looks
toward the hoop Friday night
against Palmetto Ridge.

Eric Nitz also had a solid game,
getting only two baskets but
dominating the backboards and
clearing the middle for the
shooters.
The Blue Streaks, who shot
40 percent from the floor and
25 percent (3 of 13) from the
free-throw line, led 55-20 head-
ing into the final quarter.


remember two or three times
when he got little tips and put-
backs."
Without Morgan Moran, who
will be examined early this
week after suffering a knee
injury, Yurrie Robinson and
Ray Brown each added nine
points to provide post help for
Valk, whom Young would like
to see step outside more often.
"He's a pretty decent shooter,
and we've tried to get him to
shoot more, to be honest with
you," Young said.
Castillo praised long-dis-
tance gunners Cox, Jimmy
Forbes and Carlton Thomas,
who combined for 45 of the
Frostproof's 49 points.
"They're giving it 'to us
every night," he said. "Without
those kids I don't know where
we would be right now. They
bring it."
Castillo also pointed to his
team's inexperience.
"On the floor at the very end,
we had three ninth-graders, a
sophomore and a senior.
Imagine that three ninth-
graders, a sophomore and a sen-
ior trying to play (Lake
Placid)."
No veteran group them-
selves, the Green Dragons have
impressed Young with their
growth over the first half of the
season.
"For a young team, I'm very
pleased with our progress," he
said. "They've steadily gotten
better."

having trouble when she tried it
the two previous days.
"There was no way I was
going to lay up," she said.
A chip to within three feet
i.,put .the pressure on Granada,
- wholeft her birdie putt on the
lip. Ptrssel then sank her putt
for a birdie and a two-stroke
lead that she maintained with a
par on the final hole.
Pressel led the tournament
from the opening day and
closed Friday's third round
with three straight birdies, then
opened Saturday's round with
two more birdies for a streak of
five, giving her a seven-stroke
lead.
"Turned out I needed that
cushion coming down the
stretch," Pressel said.
That cushion began to shrink
on the next hole when Pressel
bogeyed and Granada made a
par. A Granada birdie on No. 5
and Pressel's bogey on No. 9
after gettinginn two sand traps
made it a four-stroke difference
at the turn.
Granada then birdied No. 11
to get to within three shots
before the 14th hole made it an
even closer race to the finish.
Pressel gained fame as the
youngest ever to qualify for the
U.S. Open, doing it as a 12-
year-old in 2001, and has won
back-to-back state champi-
onships for St. Andrews the
past two years.
She said she plans to come
back to Sebring next year to try
for two straight titles at Harder
Hall.


SEBRING
Continued from 1B
The only mistake Ashley
made was letting a 40-yard free
kick off the foot of Pablo
Anselmo the football team's
field goal kicker get over his
hands and into the net in the
final seconds of the first half.
It didn't take long for the
Streaks to atone for that mis-
take. Just three minutes into the
second half, Sebring's two cap-
tains hooked up to tie the game
when Josh Dobbins beat the
keeper to Jorge Ortega's long
pass, deflecting the ball enough
to get a wide-open shot at the
net for a tie game.
Ortega nearly gave the
Streaks the lead. in the 50th
minute, just missing on a head-
er, but didn't miss on his sec-
ond chance less than a minute
later, heading in a goal off a
corner kick from Marshall
Merritt for the game-winner.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

Don't put

lights away
I wish the twinkling
Christmas lights that decorate
our neighborhoods could stay
up all year. I love driving in
,the evening hours and look-
ing at home after home lit up
for the holidays.
Where darkness has been,
suddenly brightness prevails
adding cheerfulness to dreary
nights or complimenting the
starry host spread out across
the heavens.
The lights seem to say,
'Welcome." "Smile."
"Celebrate.
However, as the Christmas
season wound down, I noticed
that some of the lights I'd
been enjoying lost some of
their luster. A strand or two
here and there along a roof
line went out. Then a tree
with the top portion unlit
reminded me that bulbs burn
out and strands of lights do
fail after a time.
The wind also plays havoc
with delicate decorations.
Disarray replaces what once
had been meticulous displays.
And I must accept the
inevitable. The season for
lighting up the exterior of our
homes in lavish or simple
ways has come to an end.
Yet, I still want to cry out,
"Don't put the lights away!"
You see, these lights
remind me that we have just
celebrated the infusion of
Light into our dark world by
the birth of God the Son,
Jesus Christ. He is the Light
of the World because in him
there is no darkness.
During the Christmas sea-
son, we participate in and see
the effects of what light has
on darkness not only in dec-
orations, but in the giving
-hearts that reach out to the
less fortunate. The spirit of
giving of bringing light and
hope into someone else's
darkness is inherent in the
Christian faith.
As we pack away the
Christmas lights, let's be care-
ful not to pack away the light
within us that brightens the
pathway for others. We can
remember instead what Jesus
said to his disciples.
"You are the light of the
world. A city on a hill cannot
be hidden. Neither do people
light a lamp and put it under a
bowl. Instead they put it on its
stand, and it gives light to
everyone in the house. In the
same way, let your light shine
before men, that they may
see your good deeds and
praise your Father in heaven."
(Matthew 5: 14-16, NIV)
Busy schedules, personal
needs or desires and burn-out
from stressful situations can
cause our lights to lose their
luster. The winds of adversity
will try to blow out our lights
or at least scatter them in dis-
array. But, unlike seasonal
Christmas lights that are only
for a time, the Holy Spirit will-
ingly and, continually illumi-
nates us as we yield ourselves
and bur situations to him.
So, shine! Give forth the
brightness of a welcome, a
smile and a spirit of daily cele-
bration to those you meet
throughout the year. By keep-
ing the spirit of light, hope
and giving alive, we won't put
our "lights" away. Selah.

reportedly beaten regul.irl\ b\
his trainer and, in the end. \\j
severely beaten with :i cane
and an axe handle for being
inattentive during filnming. A
month later Clyde died of cai -
diac arrest.
Clyde's story, as a'. tul si
it is, is not unique. Apes
used in the entertain-
ment industry have
long charmed audi-
ences and brought
smiles to people
through circuses,
television, and on
the big screen, but
always at a tremendous
cost.
Many are beaten,
abused, and kept in unfit
living conditions. Bui e en
those who are fortunate
enough to be given opumal
care are hurt and pernimaenml\
damaged by the experience.
"Often times," said Tin:,
Gilbert, office manager for the
Center for Great Apes "'people
don't realize what is guing on
For example, "When N ou see :
greeting card with a picture of
a chimpanzee smiling It's jacu-
ally a human smile. To chimnps
that is actually a fear gn ni.ice.
And a lot of times what they
do to get that fear grimace is
they use shock collars. They
shock them, they get scared,
they do that fear grimace, and
that's when they take the pic-
ture," she explained. "A true
chimpanzee smile has their

V 1- 1


upper lip covered and their bot-
tom lip just hangs and they
laugh."
This is why Patty Ragan
founded the Center for Great
Apes in Wauchula.
"No matter how well they
are treated, apes in entertain-
ment always suffer." This is
because, she explained, "They
are always taken from their
mother while they are only
infants and don't have the ben;
efit of learning how'to be an
ape." This is not only traumatic
and harmful to the infants, but
also the mothers. "If the baby
is taken on day one it is much
better for the mother, but
because receiving the first few
months of mother's milk
boosts the baby's immunity,
trainers often take them

hair. mimii-
ing herself, and
sinking into deep
depression," Ragan
said.
As if that weren't bad
enough, apes are only able to
be used for entertainment,
research, or kept as pets until
they are between 5 and 8 years
of age. At that point they
become too strong and unman-


ageable and are then sold to
whoever will have them.
Usually this is a small
tourist attraction where
the apes are kept in
unsuitable enclosures
and not given sufficient
nourishment or care.
"It costs $12,000 per year to
maintain each of these apes,"
Ragan stated. Not many places
can afford that overhead, and
therefore the health and well-
being of the apes are compro-
mised.
Radcliffe, a 25-year-old
orangutan born in a zoo in
Ohio, who was sold to a circus
trainer, used in television,
spent a number of years per-
forming in small traveling cir-


cuses, and eventually wound
up spending eight years in a
small tourist attraction, is a
classic example of the toll poor
nutrition and inadequate care
can take. Arriving at the Center


for Great Apes two years ago,
he was thin and had lost most
of his hair. After only one year
of quality care and a healthy
diet, he was within normal
weight range and had regained
a full and beautiful coat of hair.
All of the apes at the Center
for Great Apes have been
raised by humans, either as
victims of the entertainment
industry, research, or as pets.
They have been deprived the
necessary socialization and
role-modeling needed to
quinive in the wild and

to anyone. The domes are
equipped with swings, plenty i

ary apes receive nutritious

She performs more than 50

SEBRING With opening
night less than a week away, tick-
ets are still available for
Highlands Little Theatre's pro-
duction of 'The Tale of the
Allergist's Wife."
The show will open Friday,
Jan. 14, and run through Sunday,
Jan. 30, on Fridays, Saturdays,
Sunday and Wednesdays.
The award-winning modern
comedy tells the tale of a New
York doctor's wife and high soci-
ety matron whose life is turned
upsidedown when she becomes
reaquainted with a childhood
friend.
For director Pete Pollard, the
show is a departure from the
more serious work he usually
directs, such as "Lost in
Yonkers" and "Steel Magnolias"
of recent years.s
"It's a contemporary comedy
with adult content and themes,"
Pollard said. "If it were a movie,
it would probably get a PG-13."
The five-person casts features
several newcomers as well as
seasoned Highlands Little
Theatre performers. Deborah
Parker is making her debut as


Marjorie, the doctor's wife hav-
ing a mid-life crisis, and Tammie
Pollard is Lee, Marjorie's child-
hood friend. Chris Hayes is
Mohammed, the Iraqi doorman,
Wayne Lambright is Marjorie's
husband, Ira, and newcomer
Kristin Taylor is Frieda,
Marjorie's outspoken mother.
Written by Charles Busch,
"The Tale of the Allergist's Wife"
has been hailed by Stephen
Sondheim as "the funniest thing
I have ever seen in the theater,"
and "an intelligently funny and
satirically relevant uptown come-
dy" by John Simon of New York
Magazine.
Linda Lavin played the lead in
the tour and on Broadway until
Valerie Harper replaced her.
Pollard said his is the second
show in the season to have its
rehearsal time cut by the sum-
mer's hurricanes. But the cast
has been working hard to make
up for lost time, he said, and was
ready to enter dress rehearsals
this weekend.
The show is being sponsored
by Jackson-Hewitt Tax Service.
To reserve tickets, call the
box office at 382-2525. Ticket
prices are $33 for a Friday or
Saturday evening dinner show;
$18 for a Sunday matinee show
with dessert; and $12. for a
Wednesday evening perform-
ance.

lsts 5r;


ELAINE SEDLOCK/News-Sun
Grub, the undisputed head of the largest chimpanzee group at the Center for Great Apes, studies the
Christmas gift he stole from one of his subjects during their recent Christmas celebration. He was taken
-from his mother at only a few months of age and sold to a tourist attraction in Florida where he spent
:the first years of his life with an orangutan.


APES
'Continued from 1C
Gilbert stated. "That's why
,they are making so much
noise." Not only do these apes
receive gifts for Christmas, but
their birthdays are also celebrat-
ed.
The difference this project is
making in the lives of apes is
only made possible through the
donations and efforts of mem-
bers of the organization, staff
and volunteers.
As members, people are per-
mitted the opportunity to take a
tour of the facility by appoint-
ment and are invited to an annu-
al event every April. "It's sort
of a 'Come and see what we've
done; look at our progress'
event. We may have a light
lunch and also have lentt
auction of some really neat
artistic things that relate to pri-
mates. Our T-shirts come out at
that time too. But the real value
that people get is having the
knowledge that they are sup-
porting these apes and helping
to provide a home for them.
- They are giving these guys a


second chance at life with dig-
nity," Ragan said.
The facility suffered the loss
of half of its trees during hurri-
cane season and is in need of
volunteers to help with cleaning
up and doing gardening chores.
Monetary contributions are
always welcome and a wish list
of needed supplies can be found
at its Web site,
http://www.prime-apes.org.
This Web site also provides
information about the center, its
mission, profiles of all of its
resident apes, and many won-
derful pictures.
Though not open to the pub-
lic, tours are available to school
groups or other groups by
appointment; and both Ragan


and Gilbert are available for
public speaking engagements
and can' be reached at (863)
769-8903.
Anyone fortunate enough to
meet the residents of the Center
for Great Apes and become
familiar with their histories will
likely find it difficult to be
entertained as they once were
by performing apes. But hope-
fully, the selfless work of
activists like Ragan, Gilbert,
and the hundreds of supporters
of the Center of Great Apes,
and other facilities like it
around the world, will one day
put an end to the merciless and
senseless abuse of primates in
both entertainment and
research.

Growing bright and tasty nasturtiums


Busy gardeners love
nasturtiums because
the plants perform best .
when they're left '
alone.
Nasturtiums prefer
light, sandy, well-
drained, nutrient-poor
soil perfect for
Highlands County.
Too much fertilizer, GI
especially high-nitro-
gen fertilizer, encour-
ages lots of lush leaves
and few flowers. Do Hig
keep them watered Coun
they don't like to get Ga
too dry.
Many people think
of growing nasturtiums in hot,
sunny spots, but they do best in
a cooler climate. They.like full
sun, yet they'll benefit from
afternoon shade in warm areas.
In south Florida nasturtiums
bloom freely in winter and
spring and then start to fail
when nighttime temperatures
stay above 70 degrees. The
plants turn pale and start to lose
leaves.
At that point, you can either
cut them back by about half and
baby them until the weather
turns cooler in autumn, or pull
them out and replace them with
heat-lovers like marigolds for
the summer.


i



Ij





pt
irc


The best way to
grow nasturtiums is
to plant the seed
7 directly in the
ground after all
danger of frost is
past.
Here in south
S9, central Florida
plant them in the
IWING fall and cover if
frost threatens. Sow
SON the seeds about 14-
- inch deep, and 8-15
islands inches apart, depend-
/ Master ing on the size of the
deners mature plant. You
can also plant them
closer and then thin
out the weaker plants.
For faster germination, nick
the hard seed coats with the
edge of a file or soak them
overnight in tepid water before
planting.
Planted in conditions they
like, nasturtiums are quite pest
and disease free. You may see
aphids on them now and then,
but you can get rid of them with
a couple of applications of
insecticidal soap. Or try shoot-
ing the aphids off the plant with
a strong stream of water from a
hose.
Whether you're growing
them for their bright colors,
attractive leaves or peppery


Planting and care
Plant in shaded areas
in well-drained nutrient poor
soil, such as light sand.
Sow seeds about 1/4-
inch deep and 8-15 inches
apart when risk of frost is
past.
Don't overferzilize.
Keep plants watered.
Cut back or remove
when nighttime temperatures
reach 70 degrees or above.

taste, nasturtiums have some-
thing to offer everyone. Plant a
few, and your friends can't help
but notice them. Soon, they'll
be growing nasturtiums too.
