Dr. King


remembered


and honored

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
Monday is a national holiday hon-
oring the late civil rights leader Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr.
King was born Jan. 15, 1929, in
Atlanta at a time when segregation
was the law.
He attended Morehouse College
and went on to earn a doctorate from
Crozer Theological Seminary in
Chester, Pa., in 1948.
Returning to the south he became
a minister at the Dexter Avenue
Baptist Church in Montgomery, Ala.
It was during this time that King
became involved with civil rights.
The trigger event was when a
tired seamstress, on her way home
from work, refused to give up her
seat to a white man on a city bus.
That woman, of course, was Rosa
Parks, and she was arrested for this
"crime."
Parks was a well known and pop-
ular figure in Montgomery, and the
African-American community was

refurbishment takes


yet another twist

January 5, 1929 April 4, 1968

Special events planned to

honor Martin Luther King


News-Sun
Several events this
weekend and Monday are
' planned for areas of
Highlands County in honor
of Dr. Martin Luther King


The Family Christian
Association of America is
sponsoring two events in
honor of King.
See EVENTS, page 7A


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING What a long,
strange trip it has been. And
now another twist in the wind-
ing road of Harder Hall.
Gary Puckett has been termi-
nated as project manager of the
hotel redevelopment effort by
Joran Realty. That group, head-
ed by Marc Shenker, is the lat-
est in a long line of developers
who have pledged to try their
hand and refurbish the historic
property.
Puckett learned that he had
been fired when he returned
from a holiday cruise. He
arrived at the property, found a
note taped in the window of the
hotel telling him he was "here-
by terminated with cause."
However, to this point
Puckett doesn't know what
cause that might be.
"I'm supposed to be getting a
letter from their lawyer," he
said.


Puckett has his own ideas of
why he was let go. The long-
time proponent of the refurbish-
ing of the historic hotel had
actively disagreed with Joran's
philosophy, their methods and
the people the company has
been supervising.
Puckett said i
that for about
the past two
months other
members of the
Joran Realty
group had been
running the
project for all
intents and purposes.
"I haven't had control for the
past two months," he said.
Puckett said it was his opin-
ion that the owners had been
trying to get him to leave the
project, but he would not go of
his own volition.
"I wasn't going to quit," he
said. "They were going to have

Four give proposals to manage Sun 'N Lake


Election to decide
supervisor's seats
By PHIL ATTINGER
Newus-Sun
SEBRING Four compa-
nies haje lsilcJ SLun N Lake
of Sebring Improvement
District to look into being the
new management.
By the end of the month, one
of them may be managing pub-
lic services for the residential
and commercial area.
About 11 companies asked


for information. Sun 'N Lake
administrative services director
Lisa McGehee said only
Government Services Group
Inc. out of the Orlando area;
Severn Trent L.L.C. of
Kissimmee; Kitson & Partners
Inc.,of West Palm Beach;- and
Dyer, Riddle, Mills & Precourn
Inc. of Orlando have visited and
made proposals. Kitson &
Partners land management divi-
sion already has the contract to
run the golf course and country
club.
Wednesday, the Sun 'N Lake


Board of Supervisors will
review the proposals and decide
which proposals to have pre-
sented Friday, Jan. 21. Then, on
Jan. 28, they will vote on which
Company to offer the job..
George Puffenberger, general
manager of Sun "N-Lake of
Sebrng under the board of
supervisors, said all four are
reads to take over Feb. 1.
"The current staff won't go
away," he said, "Each (compa-
ny) has a transition plan."
McGehee said whatever
company receives the bid will


have a general manager on site
to oversee day-to-day opera-
tions. The company needs
enough expertise to manage
growth for the district, which
has a $9 million budget and has
recently completed several mil-
lion dollars in ldnd sales. Each
one of the four companies has
managed communities and
dealt with public services
issues, she said.
The chosen company also
will manage the Candlelight
Restaurant lease agreement,
which is still being finalized


with John Emanolidis and
Jimmy Tsakalos of Olympic
Restaurant. Dr. Marvin Fischer,
president of the board of super-
visors, said the resqLurant i as

the first time in several years.

ments to help deal with project-

2004 begins with


murder, ends with


unexplained death

By PHIL ATINGER
News-Sun
During 2004, Highlands County saw four homicide cases. Three of
them have been closed. One has seen a sentence, another is awaiting
trial and a third, although closed, still has some unanswered ques-
tions.
A shooting in Sebring and an unexplained death in Lake Placid are
still under investigation, as is a murder from 2003 in that same town.
Fortunately, the only other case from Lake Placid is closed, and the
defendant has been sentenced to prison.
Man beaten, suspect sentenced
Juan Carlos Salinas, a.k.a. Alex Saiven, 30, has been sentenced to
111 months in Florida prison for manslaughter in connection with the
death of George Montes, alias Dionisio Montes DeOca, 29.


2004
Highlands County's
YEAR IN REVIEW


Montes was found on Jan. 1,
2004, in the front yard of 25
Melrose Lane, Lake Placid, beaten
to death. Deputies arrested Salinas
in connection with the beating. It is
believed a car battery was the mur-
der weapon.
Salinas plead guilty in court to
manslaughter on April, 23.2004. He


was adjudicated guilty and sentenced that day.
Avon Park woman stabbed
Donovan Anthony Gobourne, 41, is in the Highlands County Jail
on no bond for a charge of'second-degree murder with a weapon, and
is awaiting a pre-trail conference Feb. 10.
Avon Park police, answering a "verbal disturbance" call, found his
wife, Jacqueline Denise Gobourne, 40, dead of multiple stab wounds
at about 8 p.m. July 8, 2004, inside a small white concrete black house
at 505 East Canfield St., Avon Park.
Unsolved shooting
Police are still searching for a suspect in connection with the shoot-
ing death of 24-year-old Jeremiah Nelson on the night of Sept. 28,

SEBRING Tragedy
often begins on a typical day
and so it was for Earl Gleason
of Maranatha Village, a
retirement community in
Sebring for ministers of the
Christian faith.
Gleason left his home
before sunrise Wednesday


morning on a drive to
Okeechobee for an appoint-
ment with his doctor. He had
driven less than a mile east on
Arbuckle Creek Road when
an oncoming 1992 Nissan
driven by Thang You crossed
the center line and hit
Gleason's 1999 Ford van in
the left side.
John Lane, 32, was follow-
ing Gleason's van and


swerved his 1998 Ford
Ranger to miss You's car,
which resulted in a second
collision.
Lane's pickup rear-ended
Gleason's van, sending them
both off the road.
You's Nissan spun and
skidded 100 feet after the
impact, coming to rest on the

Lake Blue Resort


sign may come down


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID A sign
that has been a fixture on U.S.
27 since 1959 may be coming
down.
The sign advertises the Lake
Blue Resort. The resort is at
735 S. Lakeview Road, off U.S.
27, but the sign is on the high-
way and on property the resort
does not own.
But who does own the prop-
erty was called into question at
the Lake Placid Town Council's
regular meeting Monday night.
For the time being, that remains
unknown.
John Rydecki, who manages
the resort, thought the sign was
on state right-of-way. Code
Enforcement Officer Lanny
Tolly thought the sign sat on the
right-of-way of a town-owned
road.
In any case, the sign fronts
property owned by Yarborough
Tire Service. The Yarborough
family wants to sell the proper-
ty, according to their attorney,
Rob Livingston, but has been
unable to close on a sale
because prospective buyers
were troubled by the sign.
The sign sits on property that
lies within the town of Lake
Placid, although Lake Blue
Resort is out-of the town limits
by only a few feet. The town's
sign code forbids businesses to
have off-premises signs -
which would be the case with
the Lake Blue Resort sign.
Livingston said his clients filed
a complaint about the sign
based on that issue.
However, Rydecki said the
sign has been in place for 45
years and that the Florida
Department of Transportation
has permitted the sign year after
year.
Rydecki said the sign only
became an issue within the last
six to 10 years, when the town
expanded its borders through
annexation and took in the
property on which the sign is
,jitpated. Until then, the sign
,,:i,.as ,located in the county, and
the county had ne\er objected
to it.
The sign is important to Lake
Blue Resort because it accounts
for 65 percent of its business,
Rydecki said. In the past year,


the resort has spent $20,000 to
improve the sign.
Although Councilman Bill
Brantley called the sign "almost
a Lake Placid landmark," Town
Attorney Bert J. Harris III said
allowing a sign in the right-of-
way set a bad precedent.
Harris also pointed out that
having a DOT-issued permit did
not make the sign legal and that
Lake Blue Estates was not pay-
ing to lease the property for its
sign. He said the DOT had no
authority to allow signs to be
posted on other people's prop-
erty or in the public right-of-
way.
"You could give him
approval, but what you do for
him you do for everybody,"
Harris told the council. "You
have a property owner saying 'I
don't want the sign in front of
my property' and that's a fair
consideration."
Livingston asked that Lake
Blue Resort should pay for a
survey to determine whose
property the sign sits on.
"The burden should be on the
applicant to show where the
sign is located," Livingston
said.
Rydecki said he would com-
mission the survey, and the
council agreed to return to the
issue in February.

Limits placed
on digital sign
In a related matter, Harris
asked the council to approve a
declaratory decree on a digital
sign that belongs to Central
Florida Yamaha on U.S. 27.
The town and the owner of
the business have been at odds
over the sign, which flashes
messages throughout the day.
The council has insisted that
the use of the sign is illegal
because town code prohibits
flashing and trailing signs. The
owner has contended that the
sign and its use was properly
permitted by the town.
The decree said.L~4L* me--.

and Harris said his next step
would be to take up the issue
with Central Florida Yamaha.

Memories filled with love, longing


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK History
came alive last Saturday at The
Hotel Jacaranda, as long-time
resident Edgar A. DeLaney Jr.
described the Avon Park of his
youth to the historical society.
Growing up in the '20s and
'30s, DeLaney remembers two
towns, separated by fence after
fence. One part of town was
poor, the other prosperous.
In the southern portion of the
Lton. the poorer section, were
Stwo large crate mi~Js, manufac-
turnn (h.e v.ooden; shipping
crjaes uIius[t. used in those
djaN The crates were shipped
by railroad to businesses
throughout the United States.
The mill section of Avon Park
was gritty and industrial, the
more well-to-do residential area
surrounding Main Street was
known as uptown and was care-
fully protected from it.
It was the mills that were the
life blood of the area, and by far
the biggest employer. They had
been located in Highlands
County because of the vast hard
wood and pine forests that blan-
keted the area for miles around.
Those forests fueled the mills,
filling long lines of huge trucks
with logs that traveled to the
mills 24 hours a day, seven days
a week.
Sadly, by 1954, however, the

ing upij.&iaLLfarkLe wUas the

annual banquet of the Historical
Society of Avon Park, held at
The Hotel Jacaranda.

forests of timber that had made
the mills productive had been
consumed. With the trees all
gone, the mills themselves
closed.
DeLaney's presentation was
a loving remembrance of that
world long gone, tinged with
the bittersweet regret of its loss.
DeLaney had an idyllic
childhood in Avon Park.
Most important in his mem-
ory was the stunning physical
beauty of the area. In his day
wildlife was plentiful.
DeLaney spent hours observ-
ing the natural world around
him. Hunting, fishing and


exploring the scrubs and forests
were major past times.
Tropical plants were much
more common. For example,
Jacaranda trees lined the town's
Mall, and so many homes had
them in their yards that in sea-
son the town was covered in a
lavender haze.
In addition to the natural
delights, the children found
plenty to do around town,
although some of the games the
boys invented would turn a
mother's hair gray.
Outdoors. a favorite game
was to take turns jumping down
from a board near a bee hive.
The boy who landed closest to
the hive without getting stung,
won.
DeLaney is working on a
written record of the Avon Park
he knew. It will not be his first
book, for he has already pub-
lished a picture book called
"The Magical Hammock."
It describes, in story form
and poetry, many of the trees,
animals and insects that used to
live in the Florida wild, how
they faced danger, and how
some trees in a hammock were
saved by a kind man. The book
is a love letter to a lost world, as
much as it is educational.
"The Magical Hammock"
can be bought at Jimmy's
Flower Shop at 19 S. Lake
Avenue.

Rev. Joe Benson makes OBITUARIES


final visit to HRMC


By ELIZABETH WALKER
SNews-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The
Rev. Joseph "Joe"
David Benson visited patients
in Highlands Regional Medical
Center daily for many years
since it first opened as
Highlands General Hospital.
Benson made his final visit last
week as a patient suffering from
Parkinson's disease. After
returning to The Palms of
Sebring on Monday, he died
there Wednesday morning, Jan.
12, 2005, at the age of 85.
For many years the quiet-
entries made daily by Benson
promptly at 7 a.m. to the hospi-
tal to visit the infirm were
accompanied by cheery "good
mornings" for physicians, nurs-
es, patients, and all who came
his way. He offered prayer
and/or hope sprinkled with soft
humor to thousands of patients,
workers and families through
the years.
Born in the area of Princeton,
Dec. 22, 1919, Benson was the
fourth of 11 children. "Nine
brothers and two sisters,"
Benson once said, "enough for
one baseball team and two
cheerleaders." The children
attended the Redlands School,
which was the third largest in
Florida at that time with grades
first through 12th.
His parents moved the family
from Key West to Dade County
where Benson's father served as
a lay minister when he wasn't
farming:
On Aug. 24, 1940, Joe
Benson and Ruth Peterson were
married in Miami and they bore
three sons, David, Daniel and
William.
Benson felt a call to the min-
istry early in life but struggled
with the idea and joined the
U.S. Army. He served in the
Intelligence Corps, performing
scouting and reconnaissance
tours overseas during World
War II in the Pacific arena.
Upon his return to the States,
he attended Trevecca, a
Nazarene college in Nashville,
Tenn. In October 1950, Benson
was called to pastor in Avon
Park but due to medical prob-
lems acquired during his mili-
tary service, he remained near
his family home in Princeton


for a time.
He worked in the Miami area
for five years before beginning
his pastorate in June of 1961 in
the Sebring Church of The
Nazarene. He had already pas-
tured churches in Avon Park,
Miami Emmanuel and Punta
Gorda. He served the Sebring
Church of the Nazarene from
1961 to 1967 and then from
1968 to 1985 before retiring.
Later he served the Buttonwood
Bay Church for
four years.
The church
activities in
Sebring were
held in a small
building at the
intersection of
BENSON South Pine
Street and
Commerce Avenue. During the
years Benson was pastor, the
building was converted to
Sunday school rooms and a
children's church; a new sanc-
tuary was been built, attendance
tripled and .two lots were pur-
chased for additional expan-
sion.
Total community involve-
ment was a part of Benson's
ministry, but his service was
interrupted when, in August of
1962, a doctor found a tiny
growth under his chin. As news
that the growth was malignant
spread through the community,
Benson received a flood of
responses and letters from peo-
ple he didn't even know from as
far away as Washington state.
He was admitted to the for-
mer Walker Memorial Hospital
in Avon Park before going for
treatment to Oxner Clinic in
New Orleans, La. The new drug
for cancer made him ill and had
to be discontinued. Benson
reported at that time that by
"divine providence" a subse-
quent scan and other tests.
showed the malignancy gone.
Back home again, Benson
resumed his daily visitations to
the Walker Memorial Hospital
and Hillcrest Nursing Home in
Avon Park, the hospital annex
in Lake Placid, as well as
Highlands Regional Medical
Center and local nursing facili-
ties. Besides visitation he vol-
unteered in some of these. In
1992, he received the


"Outstanding Volunteer of the
Year," Region 6 award for serv-
ice at the Sebring Care Center.
He served as chaplin for the
Veterans of Foreign Wars as
well.
In June of 1986, Benson was
honored by the Sebring Rotary
Club and made a Paul Harris
Fellow, which is a donation of
$1,000 to Rotary International
Foundation toward scholar-
ships.
During the early years of his
service in Sebring, before the
city hall was built on the park
property next to the church he
pastored, Benson would often
walk next door to Tuscawilla
Park, to help with youthful
baseball games. He usually led
a prayer before the games.
Many days he could be seen
painting and making small
repairs to church property or
watering and tending the
grounds. With a constant smile
he seemed to enjoy everything
he did.
It is noted by many that
Benson performed more mar-
riages and funerals in
Highlands County than any
other person. He found many
other avenues for service such
as providing Bibles as ceremo-
nial gifts and leaflets of spiritu-
al news for others.
Survivors include his wife,
Ruth P.; sons, Daniel Paul of
Winter Springs and William
Ray of Avon Park; brothers,
John of Leesburg and Luke P. of
Princeton; four grandchildren;
and five great-grandchildren.
He will lie in state from 11
a.m. to 8 p.m. today in the
Sebring Church of the
Nazarene. The family will be
present from 6-8 p.m. at the
church to greet the public.
The celebration service will
be at 11 a.m. Saturday in the
church with a viewing one hour
prior to the service. Interment
will follow at Pinecrest
Cemetery in Sebring with mili-
tary honors by the VFW 4300
Post.
Memorial contributions may
be made to Sebring Church of
the Nazarene building and
maintenance fund.
Morris Funeral Chapel in
Sebring handled the arrange-
ments.

than 100 top finalist posters.

Commander helps judge Polk


County transportation contest


Special to the News-Sun
Flying pants, hover shirts,
flying cars that run on air mole-
cules, inventive fuels such as
cooking oil, ice cream cones,
trash, electric fish and flying
mobile homes that use orange
peels for fuel are just a few of
the "out of the box" ideas that
Polk County fourth-graders
came up with for the second
annual Polk Transportation
Planning Organization's poster
contest.
The theme, "Transportation
in Polk County in the year
2030," stimulated the minds of
the enthusiastic young artists.
Some ideas reverted to past
transportation modes such as
such as walking and horse
pulling.


Sixteen schools in Polk
County participated in the con-
test including private schools
and home-schooled students.
More than 900 students entered
the contest, trying to outdraw
each other for top prizes. Prizes
included bicycles and helmets,
personalized street signs with
the students' name, tickets to
the 12 Hours of Sebring race,
Orlando Magic basketball tick-
ets, Amtrak, Fantasy of Flight,
Sun 'n Fun Air Museum,
Historic Bok Sanctuary and a
VIP tour of the historic Avon
Park Air Force Range with mil-
itary briefing.
In addition, corporate spon-
sors, Post Buckley Schuh and
Jernigan and Chastain Skillman
donated prize money to be


awarded to the schools of the
first place winners. The schools
of the first place winners will
receive $100 each.

Judges for the contest includ-
ed a group with a wide variety
of backgrounds: Tom Freeman,
muralist and art instructor from
Lake Wales; Brenda McLain,
curator for the Polk Historic
Museum; Polk County
Commissioner Sam Johnson,
Joe Spann, library manager at
the Polk Historical Library; Air
Force pilot, Lt. Col. Stamp
Walden, commander for the
18th ASOG, Detachment 1 at
the Avon Park Air Force Range
and MacDill Air Force Base;
and professional racer Tommy
King of Bartow.


Sebring to be garage sale heaven Saturday


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Bargain
hunters will descend on Sebring
Again Saturday morning as the
Downtown Merchants and
Professional Association hold
its first garage sale of the new
year.
The event, which is a fund-
raiser for the DMPA, draws
dozens of vendors and hun-
dreds of people on and around
the Circle. It is set to start at 8
a.m. Saturday.
Despite the announced start
time, there are plenty of early
birds as people set up their
tables. Even other vendors are
wandering about to see what
people have to offer.


Diana Hirsch, DMPA secre-
tary and event coordinator, said
there are 112 spaces total in a
route that. encompasses the
Circle and parts of both North
and County Ridgewood Drive.
But Hirsch said some people
take more tnian one space to
accommodate their wares. She
also indicated that some prime
areas still were available.
"We have spots in the
Wachovia Bank parking lot and
the city lot there at Mango
Street and Ridgewood Drive,".
she said.
In fact, it's not only individu-
als who rent spots. Hirsch said
there are a number of groups
who will be hosting tables as
well.


"The Ridge Rollaways
square dance group will be hav-
ing a table with garage sale
items and a bake sale too," she
said.
Hirsch. said groups that had
signed on included The
Highlands County Republican
Women's Club, the Lions Club
Breakfast group and at least one
area church.
"We also have a couple of
nursery and veggie-type people
coming out," she said.
There also will be a number
of food vendors selling their
wares. Dad's International
Dogs, Willie the Dog Man and
an ice cream vendor all have
signed up to participate in the
Saturday garage sale.

By KATHY GRANT
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING If Jackie
Kendall had a running theme in
her life, it would be the scarlet
thread of pain.
"Suffering is a universal lan-
guage," she said over the tele-
phone while at a conference in
West Virginia. "Faith isn't
something you get at Wal-Mart
or Kmart. It's something you
get from the Word of God."
Kendall, 54, of Royal Palm
Beach, a suburb of West Palm
Beach, is a speaker and writer
in high demand as president of
Power to Grow Ministries. She
will address women at First
Baptist Church of Sebring
Thursday. Dinner will begin at
6 p.m. at the Family Life Center
at First United Methodist
Church. Kendall will speak in
the sanctuary of First Baptist.
Called the Ladies Night of R
& R, tickets are $12 and are
available at the First Baptist
Church office. The office is
open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
and is closed during lunch from
11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Today
is the last day to purchase tick-
ets.
Since childhood Kendall has
known suffering at the hands of
her father who sexually abused
all seven of his children, as her
mother stood by passively. Two
of her siblings committed sui-
cide later in adulthood. Her
topic in Sebring will be on for-
giveness.
In 1990 her sister Bobbie
committed suicide at age 36.
Her brother John took his life in
1994 at age 40. "Everywhere I
go and speak I meet people
whose siblings have committed
suicide."
In 2004 she saw even more
suffering with the two hurri-
canes that hit West Palm Beach.
Also last year, her husband was
diagnosed with kidney cancer
and her mother-in-law died.
"I've lived for 37 years with
pain. Yet, my faith outruns my
pain. When your pain outruns
your faith, you become bitter
and cynical."
Her speech will deal with
"not renting space in your


mind, not being preoccupied
with what someone has done to
you. Martin Luther King said,
'We have finite disappointment,
but with Jesus we have infinite
hope.' I'm kind of a hope
junkie. That's the only reason I
speak is to get people close to

Remaining
faithful in your
Bible reading ..
and staying
with a group of i
fellow believ-
ers are essen-
tial tools for KENDALL
vital Christian
growth. Kendall recalls one ball
player who spiritually had
grown tremendously within the
last six years. He credited his
group of men who gathered
weekly.
"God doesn't mean for us to
be alone. Some of us get so
busy with our lives but we need
what our son calls 'accountabil-
ity.'"
As for Kendall she and a
friend call each other every
Wednesday to share what the
Lord has laid upon their hearts
long distance.
After 12 years of speaking on
a national scale, she has a way
of communicating that's practi-
cal in the 21st century. After her
speech in Sebring she 'will
address the Southern Baptist
Convention in Albuquerque,
N.M. "When you've spoken as
often as 1 have you reach a
gamut of people."
Kendall ministers to a
diverse range, from profession-
al athletes to teenagers.
Kendall taught what she
learned in life in Sunday
school, youth camps singles
retreats and as she went along
in life at the local grocery
store, the dry cleaners, friends
and couples.
Only within the last dozen
years of the 37 that she has been
speaking she has been in the
limelight. She quotes what she
calls a truth on her Web site at
http://www.jackiekendall.com.
"There is no lasting success,
happiness or fulfillments in life
apart :frrn a consistent,' daily


growing relationship with God
through the Word."
In 1989 she co-wrote the
bestseller "Lady in Waiting,"
which published in 1994. She
recently has published a devo-
tional, "Say Goodbye to'
Shame."
During spring of 1991-98 she
began teaching a spring training -
Bible study for the Montreal!
Expos and Atlanta Braves. The
president of a national organi-
zation for professional ballplay-
ers called Pro Athletes Outreach -
(baseball and the NFL) took
note of her.
Recently John Smoltz, pitch-
er for the Braves and 1996 win-
ner of the Cy Young Award,
introduced Kendall and her
husband Ken to Evander
Holyfield as his "spiritual men-
tors."
All this because Kendall dis-
cipled a young woman who was -
dating a professional ball play-
er.
In 1972 she entered college,
to study the Bible at a time
when it wasn't popular for
women to take hermeneutics
(training in proper interpreta-
tion of Scriptures) classes. The
men in her classes constantly
challenged her.
Kendall said God has used
her suffering to reach out to
others and direct them to Jesus
Christ. As a child she grew up
envious of other children whom
she imagined had kinder and
more loving fathers.
As for her father, he died of a
heart attack denying that he
ever did anything wrong and'
never asking for forgiveness.
When she approached him to
tell him that she forgave him he
attacked her verbally and said-
she was lying.
She says on her Web site::
"Forgiveness is a daily reality
forgive and forgive again -
and again until you look into'
the eyes of the one who died so
you could freely forgive.
Remember you are most like
Jesus when you are forgiving.
Every challenge in your life that'
demands forgiveness is a "Be
SLike Jesus Moment.' '"

KING
Continued from 1A
incensed at her arrest.
King was one of the commu-
nity's leaders. He had read
Henry David Thoreau and
Mahatma Ghandi, and he
believed in finding a nonviolent
response, which is why he
helped channel people's anger
into peaceful action.
To protest segregation, and
support Parks, African-
Americans avoided riding the
city bus system in a boycott that
lasted 381 days and only ended
when the U.S. Supreme Court
ruled that local laws requiring
segregation were illegal.
King had proved that peace-
ful mass action could bring
about change.
In 1957, King became the
president of the newly formed
Southern Christian Leadership
Conference. In the spring of
that year he led the first mass
march on Washington, becom-
ing an acknowledged leader of
the new civil rights movement.
In 1960, King returned to
Atlanta to join his father at the
Ebenezer Baptist Church.
Three years later King and
other leaders were arrested in
Birmingham, Ala., when they
planned a peaceful march.
In 1963, television news cov-
erage had come of age, and mil-
lions of Americans watched the
police violence on peaceful pro-
testers with horror and shame.
The tide of public opinion

said.
By the time she arrived on
the scene the sun was just
beginning to break through the
morning fog.
To her horror, there were
three ambulances on scene and
the Aeromed II helicopter.
Traffic began to back up as
she waited with friends, already
making plans to travel to
Tampa.
Unbeknownst to June
Gleason, paramedics had re-
accessed her husband's condi-
tion.


The annual Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. Day March in Sebring
will take place at 6:30 p.m.

p.m.

program will be at the Sebring
Civic Center on Lake Jackson,
which also includes the young

Food and refreshments will

began to turn. -
This was the same year he
led a second mass march to
Washington D.C., and gave his
"I Have A Dream" speech in
front of Lincoln Memorial.
The next year he was award-
ed the Nobel Peace Prize, the
youngest man ever so honored.
King continued to march and
fight for civil rights; he also
protested the war in Vietnam.
His work, and the courage
and dedication of the thousands
of fellow marchers over the
years, led in 1964 to the Civil
Rights Act, and in 1965, to the
passage of the Voting Rights
Act.

sat with her. Soon after that, he
went to his bedroom and
brought a handgun back with
him. She picked it up and held
it. Lee told police she raised the
gun with both hands, aimed and
fired once at Lamb's chest. She
discarded the gun in a body of
water Nov. 26.
By 2:20 a.m. Nov. 27, Avon
Park police, with the coopera-
tion of the Hardee County
Sheriff's Office, found Lee in
Zolfo Springs and arrested her.
She is charged with second-
degree murder with a firearm,
possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon, use of a

of a felony and tampering with
evidence.

It's not only Puckett who is
gone from the project. General

pulled the Trinity Development

Secor reportedly had com-
plained to Sebring building

times about unlicensed contrac-
tors working on the job. He
alleged that there were laborers

NEWS-SUN + SEBRING, PLA,


Student ministry goes 'Googa Mooga'


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
Googa Mooga is not a new
dance. In fact, it's an annual
event that's about 11 years
old. What is it?
It's more easily experienced than
described. But, here's a heads-up.
The Student Ministry of the First
Baptist Church of Sebring, 200 East
Center Ave., under the direction of
Youth Pastor Scott Sjoblom, hosts this
event every January.
"Once the year on the calendar
changes, the first question I hear is,
'Are we doing Googa Mooga?'"
Sjoblom said.
Students will meet at the First
Baptist Church Student Center parking
lot at 4:30 p.m. and return at 10:30 p.m.
Saturday. The cost is $5 per student and
each one must have a notarized permis-
sion slip attainable at the church
office or from the Student Ministry
Web site at http://www.fbcstudents.net.
A notary will be available on the day of
the program.
Ready for an unbelievably fun
evening, the students pile into buses
that will take them on an excursion to
the Kahn Ranch on State Highway 66
for a huge flour fight and Bible study.
"It is a strange sight, indeed, to see
close to 175 students dressed from
head-to-toe in camouflage and armed
to the teeth with small paper bags of
flour bailing out of three watermelon
buses into a cow pasture," Sjoblom
said.
Some students who would never set
foot inside a church will be first in line
for Googa Mooga.
"The whole reason we prepare this
trip is to tell those students about Jesus,
love for them," Sjoblom said. "It is a
different and unique way to present the
gospel and have a time of praise and
worship."


WANT TO GO

What: Googa Mooga
When: Saturday, Jan. 15
Where: First Baptist Church Student Center
parking lot, downtown Sebring
Time: 4:30-10:30 p.m.
Cost: $5, plus a notarized permission slip
More information: Call the church office at

A bus filled with middle school students last year prepares to leave the First Baptist Church
grounds for Googa Mooga at Kahn Ranch in Sebring. Students are preparing again for this year's
event to take place Saturday.


Covered in flour, three friends pose together at the end of Googa Mooga 2003.

Praise for the

local officers
Editor:
As a resident of Sebring I
offer my heartiest congratula-
tions to all law enforcement
agencies and personnel who
participated in the recent cap-
ture of four armed criminals
who seemed to believe that
robbing banks was a career
opportunity rather than a
crime!
Kudos to all who wear the
badge and believe that "protect
and serve" is not just a motto
but a solemn pledge to be hon-
ored.
To Avon Park, Sebring, Lake
Placid, sheriff's department
and Florida Highway Patrol
officers who cooperated in the
capture of these individuals
while' keeping innocent by-
standers safe, I say Bravo!
Bravo! Bravo!
You all have my utmost
respect and admiration.
F.D. Siebold

2000 was the

end of America
Editor:
Every now and then the
news "junkies" have something
that grabs our attention irritat-
ing us to no end and just won't
let go.
$240,000 paid out of taxpay-
ers' money by "someone" to
bribe popular news broadcast-
ers to repeatedly call to atten-
tion "No children left behind" '
apparently for the purpose of
helping Bush to win a second
time in the White House. When
in fact, many children have
been left behind in this educa-
tion system. Now Americans
are asking, "Who is responsible
for this bribe and who stole our
money to perpetuate this
crime?"
The White House crowd,
seemingly, has no interest to
investigate the source of the
bribe. Do you wonder George
W. Bush is hated by many
Americans? He represents the
exact opposite of our founding
fathers' code of ethics, our
beliefs and morals, yet he has
duped the majority to believing
he embraces high moral stan-
dards.
Wouldn't you like to know
who put their sticky fingers in
our till to the tune of $240,000?
Why do you suppose our presi-
dent hasn't appointed a fact
finding team to retrieve our
money and punish the crooks?
The worst thing that ever
happened to America was in
the year 2000 when we voters
lost our voice in this govern-
ment and George W. Bush was
appointed by the Supreme
Court as president when they
knew he did not have leader-
ship quality beyond that of a
bully.


Al Gore would never have
lied to the American people and
the world to start a war in Iraq
- never. Al Gore is a states-
man with 24 years experience
in government. I hear you say-
ing "Get over it Una, that's in
the past!"
The year 2000 was the end
of America. It was the end of
the "government of the peo-
ple." We are now ruled by a
bully dictatorship; a govern-
ment owned by lobbyists!
Special interests make the deci-
sions to favor their interests
and then pay the "right" people
in Washington to get "the job
done."
Pharmaceuticals are putting
out drugs that have not been
adequately tested yet the FDA
blessed with the almighty dol-
lar passed early approval. In the
meantime our president makes
a deal with Canada to stop sell-
ing medicines we can afford to
the senior citizens of this coun-
try. Not only that, but is now
busy trying to put a cap on what
he calls "frivolous lawsuits"
that protect us from medical
errors, after causing loss of
limbs and lives.
In protecting his money
base, George W. Bush allows
manufacturing companies to
continue pouring poison into
the atmosphere. Tobacco indus-
try continues to produce a
product everyone knows keeps
adults and children hooked on
nicotine that is gradually
increasing ruining their health
and causing deaths.
There are many other special
interest groups, the National
Rifle Association for instance,
that pays money and vacations
as perks that keep a choke hold
on the government that once
was known to belong to "we,
the people."
Sept. 11, 2001, was a day of
horror none of us will ever for-
get. It was also a reminder that
the protective services we pay
high wages to did not give us a
fair return for our investment.
I read the 9/11 report from
cover to cover. While many
facts were brought to the fore-
front, there was also some
"white washing" done. Going
into Afghanistan after al
Quaeda and the Taliban was the
right thing to do. We were
defending our country.
We had absolutely no busi-
ness attacking and invading
Iraq. No provocation that
would warrant killing and
maiming more than 100,000
innocent people. The needless
killing rages on and there is no
end in sight.
The tsunami horror in south-
east Asia is still in progress and
will be for the unforeseeable
future. Another sign of the
coming of Jesus. Hardships that
are indescribable are sure of to
follow. History is a predictor of
the future.

Compassion is

more than real
Editor:
In recent days we have
viewed the sad news relating to
the tsunami tragedy.
Without a doubt, the most
destructive natural disasters in
history, the most recent report
on the number of lives lost in
this tragic event was set at
150,000 and rising. The inten-
sity and destruction was
beyond human comprehension.
At the time of the first news
related to this awful tragedy, I
was preparing a study to be
presented to a Bible study class
on Dec. 27.
The study presented Jesus
conveying a parable concern-
ing compassion as opposed to
prejudice.
The longer I reviewed this
study, the more I realized the
news on TV was projecting a
picture of the reality of com-
passion before my very eyes.
As soon as the news came
out of the immediate response
of the people of practically all
the nations around the world, I
was convinced that no religious
group or society has a monop-
oly on compassion, these natu-
ral disasters confront humanity,
miraculous changes take place
in the lives of many people.
The safety and well-being of
victims of the fury of nature
becomes the first and foremost
in the minds and hearts of peo-
ple worldwide.
Even people who were pre-
viously engaged in ethnic war,
were seen working shoulder to
shoulder to help in any way
they could. The irony of all that
transpired, was the unity of the
people, they were not asked
which religion or ethnic back-
ground they were affiliated
with.
In the 86 years I have been
on this planet, I have never
seen real compassion demon-
strated with the magnitude it
has been in the last few days.
Finally I might conclude
with the following comment.
Jesus presented us with a spiri-
tual truth, in the form of a
"parable." On the other hand,
providence by the fury of
nature has brought the reality
of supreme compassion before
our very eyes.
Surely we can conclude,
when humanity is put to the
crucial test, they will band
together in unity.
Our faith in humanity has
been revitalized, not because of
our different affiliations but
because of a heartfelt concern
for our fellow man.
Our hearts are heavy, sorrow
is intense, may we be compas-
sionate at any and all times,
when there is a need to be met.
Thank you.
Bill Williams

These kids

are smart

I have always believed that
our children are much smarter
than we give them credit for.
They know they can push us
and they know just how far
they can go. They know how to
act and what to say to avoid
getting in trouble. Simply put,
they know how to work it.
But as they get older you see
the children channel those
energies into more meaningful
things. Now, I'm not saying
that they forget how to work it,
I'm just saying that they don't
work it so often.
Take my youngest for exam-
ple. At 8, Daniel loves to see
how far I'll let him go with try-
ing to be his own boss.
A very wise friend of mine
has told me that I'm going to
have to start letting go of him. I
think for any mom that's hard
to do with the youngest, but
I'm trying to.loosen my grips a
little while still expecting him
to be respectful of his elders.
But at the same time, Daniel
has proven that he pays atten-
tion more than I sometimes
give him credit for.
His teacher, Gay Cook at
Avon Elementary School, has
been a wonderful support. After
a shaky year last year, I wasn't
sure what direction I needed to
go with Daniel. Then the hurri-
canes came and things were a
mess for the longest time. I had
gone through a really bad tor-
nado as a child myself and have
never done well with storms
since. After going through the
hurricanes, I felt like I was a
stronger person, but still had
issues I had to deal with and
missed a lot of sleep. Things
are better now, but not like I
wish they were. I'll get there.
Anyway, Mrs. Cook has
opened a whole new world to
Daniel in a way that I hadn't
been able to. His sister and I
Both love to read and no matter
how many books I would read
or buy for Daniel I just couldn't
get him interested in books.
I've learned now that I wasn't
getting the right kind of books.
He has been reading a book a
day, sometimes every other
day, for the past month, and is
loving every minute of it.
The difference he's more
like me than I had admitted I
guess he prefers true-to-life
books. Forget fiction. His inter-
ests are more in animals, trains,
earth, the dangers of drugs. In
fact, his dad just ordered him a
book about firefighters. I asked
if it is a kid's book and he said
no, it's an adult book by Dennis
Smith, the author of a number
of excellent firefighting books.
I've read a number of them
myself.
He said Daniel had picked
up one of his books on his last
visit and really got into it.
Amazing.
And there are times when
Daniel's sister is doing Bible
trivia questions and Daniel
starts answering the questions.
I think he's not paying attention
or not even listening at church
and instead he's taking it all in.
Jeff Cantwell, our former
sports editor and current
teacher at Sebring High School,
were talking about our sons the
other day, comparing war sto-
ries. It's kind of neat to talk to
another parent and be reassured
that you're doing everything
right, or at least right for the
moment. It's also a relief to talk
to another parent and know that
just because our boys like to
stay busy in their own way,
there is not a thing wrong with
them.
These kids are smart and.
they are eager to learn. I hope
they continue to have the
opportunity to do just that with
meaningful teachers.














What is the American Cancer Living in a world of acronyms


Society's 'Relay for Life'?


As the event chair-
person for Sebring's
Relay For Life, I
would like to take
this opportunity to
ask for your help and
generosity for one of
the most moving and
memorable events I
believe you will ever
attend. GUEST
Each town in
Highlands County NAY
holds its own Relay STA
For Life so that com-
munity members can
become involved -Lake
Placid, Feb. 25-26; Sebring
March 4-5; Avon Park. March
11-12.
If you remember nothing
more than one word from this
article, let it be hope, that those
lost to cancer will not be forgot-
ten, that those who are now
faced with cancer will have the
support of family and commu-
nity, and that one day in the
future cancer will be eliminat-
ed.
Relay For Life, an 18-hour,
overnight event, began in 1986
to raise money to fund cancer
research, patient services, edu-
cation and advocacy. As of
2004 there were more than
3,800 events held in the United
States and 30 countries, raising

more than $1.5 bil-
lion. Each team raises
money individually
and collectively
through community
fund-raisers.
Z7 Opening day of
Relay For Life fea-
tures a survivor's din-
ner. Please call the
OLUMN person in your town
at the end of this edi-
EEN trial to place your
ATS name on the dinner
- invitation list.
As it becomes
dark, hundreds of Luminaria
candles surround the track in
memory of those who lost their
battle with cancer or in honor of
a survivor or caregiver. The
cheering crowd, their smiling
faces streaked with tears, offer

Acronyms have
become so much a part GUEST
of life today that we
often forget what the Di
letters used actually Thib
mean.
Some acronyms are
used in daily life by individuals
who do know what they mean
but to the person they are
speaking with, it is a foreign
language. I know that I have
even made up my own just to
eliminate so many words. If
you hear me say I am late
because of SMVs, I am actually
talking about "slow moving
vehicles."
Instead of always saying
"grandparents raising grand-
children," it has been shortened
to GRG; "kinship caregivers"
has been shortened to KIN. The
Department of Children and
Families is known as DCF in
the state of Florida.
In other states they have dif-
ferent acronyms for whatever
their child protective services
are called. We live in an
acronym world.
In the world of those of us
raising our grandchildren or kin
children the acronyms of
TANF, RCP, and AFDC are
very common.
TANF is actually Temporary
Assistance for Needy Families.
It was established in 1996 and
replaced the former AFDC,
Aide to Families with
Dependent Children. The pro-
gram was established in federal
government as a funding source
providing a federal block grant
and requires the maintenance of
a fixed level of state funds.
The RCP is a Relative
Caregiver Program and is under
Florida Statutes, Section
39.5085. This act took effect in
Octoberr 1998 and is to iielp
those who have become relative


C

ia
bo(


Caregivers when chil-
:OLUMN dren are placed with
them through the child
ne protection system and
deau have been adjudicated
S dependent by the legal
system. The amount of
specific benefit payment is
based on the age of the child
and there are eligibility rules.
Many of those who I have
come in contact with have had
the children placed with them
through the Department of
Children and Families. The
children have been adjudicated
dependent but the caregiver is
not receiving the Relative
Caregiver Program funds. If
you are one of these caregivers,
check with your caseworker.
This is formal kinship care and
if you meet the eligibility
requirements, you should be
receiving these funds. A child
0-5 years old would receive
$242 a month, 6-12 years
would get $249 a month, and a
child 13- plus would receive
$298 a month.
If you are raising a grand-
child or kinship child in the
informal system, meaning you
have been given custody will-
ingly by the biological parents,
you can apply for Child Only
TANF This is a lesser amount
then the Relative Caregiver
Funds but it may help keep food
in your refrigerator.
For the short time that I
received these funds it was
$241 a month and that was for
two young children. The chil-
dren should also be covered by
Medicaid with either program.
Some are raising their chil-
dren's children or a relative's
children without any help what-
soever out of fear. They strug-
gle daily to make sure the chil-
drc:n' needs are met and do not


ask for help. It is not an issue of
pride, but an issue of fear of the
biological parents.
The state of Florida makes
the biological parents responsi-
ble for bringing a child into the
world, which is the right thing
to do. Whether a one night fling
or a long time relationship,
there are consequences when a
new life is made because of the
relationship.
When you sign up for the
TANF program and the children
are with you in an informal cus-
tody agreement, the state will
go after the biological parents
for child support. By not going
after the assistance they need,
these caregivers become
enablers, but only out of fear
for the children.
If the state goes after the bio-
logical parents for child sup-
port, the caregiver fears retribu-
tion or worse, losing the child
back to the biological parents.
Worry about a child going back
to live with parents that really
don't care about them or want
them can make a caregiver do a
lot to keep the harmony intact.
I am always here and willing
to help in any way I can to
make the lives of those raising
their grandchildren or kinship
children a little easier. I can be

.dltsk Lesson
10 Years Ago
Jan. 13, 1995: After
Mulberry showed up late
for its game at Lake Placid,
the Panthers' fourth quarter
charge proved too little, too
late in a 90-84 Green
Dragon victory. Jerry
Moore paced Lake Placid
with 18 points.

15 Years Ago
Jan. 13, 1990: Dwayne
Hackett scored just three
points in regulation, but
poured in seven in overtime
to lead Polk over SFCC 72-
64. Anthony Soule had 23
to lead the Panthers (8-10,
0-2), who forced a Polk
shot clock violation to send
the game to overtime.

20 Years Ago
Jan. 15, 1985. Without
Howard:Williams and Willie
Tate, Sebring (10-3) failed
to complete a rally against
visiting Fort Pierce Central
and fell 51-45. David
Holmes led the way with 12
as the Blue Streaks crept
back from a 44-28 third-
quarter deficit.

Lady Panthers get


to show off uniforms


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK There will
be a host of "firsts" this spring
for the South Florida
Community College Lady
Panthers. After all, when you're
the first softball team ever at the
school, basically everything
you do is a candidate for the
record books.
As far as all those future
firsts go, what happened
Tuesday afternoon at Panther
Field probably won't end up
ranked among the top. But it
was still a big day when the
Lady Panthers donned their
orange-and-white uniforms for
the first time ever for their first
team pictures.
The outfits seemed to be a
hit, too.
"I like it. They don't look
good off, but they look good on
and they feel good to play in,"


outfielder Stephanie Kelley
said.
"I like them. They look
sharp," said infielder Leslie
Brewer.
"I think I look cute," added
infielder/outfielder Courtney
Wallace.
For most of the players and
coach Carlos Falla, Tuesday
was just the latest step on what
has been a rocky road to the
first game Feb. 5 in Clearwater.
Most of the fall exhibition
schedule and a lot of practice
time was wiped out by the
hurricanes. Waiting for the real
season to open up has been like
a kid waiting for Christmas, and
putting on the uniforms was a
move in the right direction.
"I've been dying," infielder
Cassie Green said. "When that
first game comes, I'm going to
be kind of jittery, but once we
get that first ball or first swing,


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
The 2005 SFCC Lady Panthers got to show off their uniforms on Tuesday.


I'll be fine. We kind of get tired
of playing each other, but it's
the real deal now."
"It makes me real nervous,'
Kelley said of wearing her
game attire. "I'm ready. I want
it to start. Let's go."
"We had like four games (in
the fall) and I can't wait to start
playing. We have, like 80


games to play, so I'm excited,"
Wallace said.
None of the players has wait-
ed as long as Brewer, the
DeSoto star who was the first
player to verbally commit to the
program.
"It feels good," she said.
"I'm glad we finally get to wear
them. Our season's about to


start and I'm excited. I can't
wait. Christmas break was
extremely long and everything
is just dragging out."
If waiting for opening day
has been like a kid waiting for
Santa Claus to come, then Falla
has been waiting for a year and

On-the-job training


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
LAKE PLACID
U usually, a senior starting at point guard has
been around the team for a while.
Eddie Peifer, however, is in his first year
on the Lake Placid varsity team, and has
impressed others, including himself, with his ability
to step in and start every game but one he missed
with illness.
"I doubted it a little bit," said Peifer, who was the
starting point guard for the Green Dragon jurj.g' .''i't
as a freshman:?'"Ikind of knew that I had to wAIk i aIt to
get back to i h.it I wag ify'freshman year."'''''ide'
Still, the 5-foot-9, 136-pounder said keeping hi'
skills sharp by playing pick-up games during a tw o-
year absence from organized basketball has served
him well. He's also kept in shape with baseball,
having pitched and played outfield the last three
years for the Dragons.
Peifer stayed with the baseball team even when
.problems away from school kept him from play-
ing basketball as a sophomore. While he could
have returned to the court last year, he stayed
focused on his other sport.
"Last year, I didn't think about it," he said. "I
just went ahead and started playing baseball like I
always do."
The players he competed against on the recreation-
al courts, many of whom are his current team-
mates, encouraged Peifer to consider playing for .
the school again. When he did, he found his \
experience playing with some of the Dragons
on blacktop came in handy on hardwood. )
"That made it a little bit easier," he said, '
adding that though Brandon Bair is the only
remaining teammate from the JV squad three
years ago, he also played with many of the cur-
rent Dragons back in middle school.
Instead of adjusting to personnel, the greatest
challenge Peifer said he's faced has been accli-
mating to the speed of the varsity game.
"In JV it's not quite as quick as it is on varsi-
ty," he said.
Peifer admits his experience is not exactly d6ji
vu.
"There's a lot of new things," he said. "A lot olf
new offenses and stuff like that, just a lot of new
things with a little bit of the old stuff in it'."

The best part about
watching sports on televi-
sion, which admittedly
takes up more of my hours
than I'll admit, is that you
often get to bear witness to
the inherent train wreck
that it is.
Neither television execu-
tives nor jocks have been
long noted for their fore-
sight, and while we are on
occasion treated to the
pleasant intellectual sur-
prise, we are far more often
subjected to the likes of
"Turn Back the Clock" live
events on ESPN Classic.
Never mind that the net-
work already has program-
ming it categorizes as
"Your Father's Classic,"
ostensibly for the odd NFL
film considered to be more
retro than retro. Apparently
misguided by the notion
that all history is merely a
distortion of the present,
Classic is now regularly
showing live college bas-
ketball with intentionally
archaic production.
I'll cop to the fact I liked
this idea last year, when
ESPN was looking for
ways to commemorate the
25th anniversary of its
1979 inception. But now,
like those psychedelic-yel-
low A's uniforms that pop
up annually, shabby graph-
ics and over-the-hill
announcers are regular sta-
ples, appearing weekly.
Instead of showing old
games themselves, which
would serve to invoke the
nostalgia for which the net-
work was created, we
instead are shown crowd
shots featuring cringe-
inducing 18-year-old
schmucks who raided their
father's closets in accor-
dance with the network's
directive for period cloth-
ing.
New rule: No one can
wear an afro wig unless
they, at some point, had an
actual afro.

subject of apparent obsession
by the Fox cameramen in
Sunday's wild-card game at
Green Bay. It's as though some
people have never seen an afro
before.
My guess is Joe Buck has
never seen anyone actually
moon him before, because that
would begin to explain why he
went into such a scathing dia-


tribe when Moss feigned drop-
ping his pants.
I was looking away at the
time of the incident, and thus
only heard Buck's vitriol. So
until a friend called me that
night and explained, I thought
Moss had actually shown his
tuchus on Fox air, in apparent
support of Mickey Rooney,
who had been denied that priv-
ilege just days earlier.
In a way, this reality saddens
me. Moss and Rooney could


have joined hands, held joint
press conferences and made a
stirring tandem of crusaders
against both overzealous
announcers and the poorly run
networks they work for, like
some 21st century Cosell and
Ali.
But, on the other hand,
maybe there is something to be
said for turning the other
cheek. Away from the camera.

"From Feb. 5 through May, it's .going to be
Christmas for me," he said. "I'm ready to play
and get us moving."
Seeing the team on the field in uniform wasn't
any less exciting for the coach than it was for the
Players.
"It's the first time we put the uniforms on. It's
for real now. The fall, with all the storms and
everything, was kind of a wash. It never really
got started. Buit now, with uniforms, we can get
everything going and it makes me want to go play
somebody."

facility mainly the concession stand and rest-

ting cage mostly done. We'll have everything
ready to go within the next week and the rest-

Yet Peifer has not struggled
to make the adjustments.
"He's picked it up real
quick," Lake Placid head coach
Steve Young said. "I've always
gone by what I call the 'kiss'
theory: Keep it simple, stupid.
If you do that, you can get kids
to run it, and we just want to
execute.
"He's picked the things up,
our defenses and offenses.
They're not real difficult, but
our goal is just to execute them
correctly."
Young said his numbers,
averages of 2.9 points per
game and 2.8 assists, don't
indicate his value to the team.
"He doesn't have to score a
lot of points. We're not inter-
ested in him having to score a
whole bunch," the coach said.
"Now if he's got the open
jumper, he's going to pull the
trigger. We're more interested
in him running the offense,
finding the open man, making
things continue in our offense
- to run smoothly."
Peifer is just one of several
Dragons who serve in a pri-
mary ball-handling capacity.
"What's been really good for
Eddie is that Jovanni Shuler
also handles the ball a lot, and
they're somewhat interchange-
able," Young said. "The whole
responsibility has not just fall-
en on Eddie. The responsibility
has been more of a team
thing."
Peifer said his teammates
have also been supportive as
he's worked his way back.
"The team's helped me out a
lot, with confidence," he said.
"When I make bad passes, they
pick me up."
Young said ball-handling
was a teamwide weakness at
the beginning of the year but
has steadily improved, as wit-
nessed by Peifer's six-assist,


Sebring Seniors Softball League


action loaded with close games


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Parity was never more evident
than in Tuesday's Sebring Seniors Softball
League action. Two league games were decided
by a margin of three runs and the third game was
even closer, being decided by a difference of one
run.
Last year's league champ, Highlands
Independent Bank, showed its mettle in a come-
from-behind, -17-14, win over the Silent
Salesmen at DeSoto Field. The Bank jumped out
to a 7-1 lead after 3 1/2 innings, but the Silent
Salesmen proved to be anything but silent as they
met the challenge with seven runs in the bottom
of the third inning to forge ahead 8-7.
See-saw was the name of the game from
innings four through seven, when the game
became knotted at 14. With two outs in the top of
the last inning, the Bankers received several
breaks as the usually sure-handed Salesmen mis-
handled grounders and fly balls, resulting in three
unearned runs for the Bank, which was led by
Manager Rick Harker's 4-for-4 hitting and 4-for-
5 hitting by Ed Carroll and Charley Williams.
The Salesmen's offense was led by three hits

win over LaBelle on Monday.
Ultimately, the Dragons
have been successful with
Peifer playing the position that
has produced back-to-back
players of the year in
Ramadhani Brown and Shorne
Neverson.
"If you had told me at the
beginning of the year, aft6r our
13th game, we'd be 9-4 and 2-
1 in the district, and asked


'Would you take that, right
now, and go on?' I would have
said yes," Young said.
"I knew this team had poten-
tial, but I didn't know where
we would be at, at this point..
We surprised ourselves a little
bit, but we're continuing to get
a little better, and that's the
goal, to try to continue to get
better, and then by district time
hopefully you're playing at
your peak."

Knutilla. Manager Max Glenn contributed four
hits in five at bats, while Dick Harris, Flack and
Glenn' each doubled.
At Lake Placid's Lake June Complex, Miller
Heating won another 17-14 battle over the
Buttonwood Bay Rebels. Contributing three hits
each for Miller were Billy Thompson, Tommy
Walsh, Rod Palmer and Bobby Hensley. Palmer
hit a home run. Getting four hits for the Rebels
were Jerry Mattis, Moose Morrissette, Elwood
Black and Bill Skonieczny. Hitting for extra
bases were Mattis (double), Black (triple) and
Stan Turl had two doubles.
At Lincoln Heights Field, the league's two
newest teams battled toe-to-toe before the
Buttonwood Bay Yanks edged out Discount
Aluminum to win 14-13. The Yanks were led by
three hits each from Surge Prieto, Bob Fox and
Doran Quigg. Prieto and Fox homered and Ray
Concepcion contributed a double. For Discount
Aluminum, contributing three hits each were Ray
Wilson, Ken Crandall and Lee Smith. Extra-base
hits were recorded by Smith (double) and John
Schmidt (double).

All women

can be set free

from abuse
She is battered so badly,
her skin is no longer the
beautiful, clear pigmentation
she was born with. She
resembles that of a mishan-
dled egg plant, purplish in
color. Although she has suf-
fered so much, she sits in her
abusive relation due to fear
of the system, which is sworn
to protect her. She fears
reprisals from her perpetrator
and his family.
This woman is a Hispanic,
an immigrant, and in her
country it is acceptable for a
man to beat a woman if he is
dissatisfied with her. It's
called, "keeping her in
check." The man is the head
of the house and therefore his
responsibility is to take steps
regardless how violent it is to
curb a family problem.
She can leave, but she is
afraid. In certain cultures
leaving the father of her chil-
dren or getting a divorce car-
ries a stigma. First, she may
never be able to remarry
within her community.
Second, she is held responsi-
ble for the marriage coming
to an end She is seen as hav-
ing abandoned the marriage,
regardless of how "discolored
her skin has become or how
many broken bones she has
had." Third, her family may
abandoned her, because by
leaving her abusive husband
she has disgraced the entire
family. Fourth, relatives who
witness the abuse, may not
intercede, but condone the
beatings, and will refuse to
cooperate with the police
should they.become
S innoled. In addition, her
immigration status may play
a key role in her decision to
stay or to remain with her
abuser.
If her immigration status is
an issue, she can petition fdr
herself under the Violence
Against Act passed by
Congress. The Violence
Against Women Act has spe-
cial immigration protection
for immigrants abused by cit-
izens or lawful permanent
residents, spouses or parents.
This VAWA Act assists immi-
grant women in proven bat-
tered relationships to obtain
legal permanent status (Green
Card) without having to
depend on the individual who
had started the petition for
legal status. Therefore she is
not forced to remain in a
volatile and dangerous rela-
tionship.
According to the
Department of Justice, 28
percent of Hispanic victims
"perceived the offender to be
under the influence of drugs
and/6r alcohol; 14 percent of
Hispanics said firearms were
in olhved: 9 percent of
Hispanic victims said that the
offender was an intimate;
bwile-341 percent described
the offender as a friend or
acquaintancee"
The National Crime
Victimization Service reports
during 2000. "Hispanic per-
sons'age 12 and older experi-
enced about 690,470 violent
crimes." Among them were
rapes and sexual assault.
Domestic violence goes
beyond socio ecoriomic, spir-
itual, political, race and
immigration status.
Regardless of your immigra-
tion status, there are laws to
protect you. Domestic vio-
lence is a crime. If you need
help, call Victims Advocate
Kerri Martin at 402-6855 or
e-mail her at
martinkr@flcjn.net. For a

Pete Pollard and cast bring fresh, new comedy to Highlands Little Theatre


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
SEBRING
I 1 t made me laugh out loud,"
said Pete Pollard.
"It's very funny," said
Christopher Hayes.
"It's a hoot," said Wayne Lambright.
They're talking about "The Tale of
the Allergist's Wife" a comedy by
Charles Busch that, for most of
Highlands County, is an unknown com-
modity. Tonight, it makes its debut at
Highlands Little Theatre.
In 2000, "The Allergist Wife" .
became an off-Broadway sensation and
then graduated to a run on the Great
White Way with Linda Lavin and
Valerie Harper taking turns as its stars.
Peter Pollard, who has directed plays
at Highlands Little Theatre for 20 years,
tried to catch a showing of "The -
Allergist's Wife" while visiting New
York a few years ago. When his plans
were derailed, he ended up buying
Busch's anthology of plays and
reading sections of "The Allergist's
Wife" to his director-actress wife,
Tammie Pollard.
He thought it was that funny.
The material was more lightweight
than the plays Pollard directed in the
past works like "The Miracle
Worker," "Foxfire," "Lost in Yonkers"
and "Steel Magnolias" but he rel-
ished the opportunity to bring some-
thing fresh and new to the Sebring-
based community theater.
So Pollard pushed ahead with staging
"The Allergist's Wife' at Highlands
Little Theatre, even though it proved to
be "the play no one had heard of' -
including his entire cast and most of his
production team.
"I'm looking forward to bringing
something to Highlands County that
you can't see at the high school,"
Pollard said.

The tale

"The Tale of the Allergist's Wife" is
the story of Marjorie Taub, a pampered
New York housewife who fancies her-
self to be an intellectual and has a 32-
year marriage to prominent allergist.
Marjorie's days are filled with
attending lectures, movies and museum
exhibits and indulging in heavyweight
books like Hermann Hesse's
"Siddhartha" but a setback sends her
into a mid-life crisis.
Her family is not much help. Her
husband, Ira, is busy enjoying philan-
thropic pursuits in retirement and bask-
ing in the glow of being adored by
those he helps. Her mother Frieda is
out-of-touch with her daughter's spiritu-
al yearnings and nags her to cope with
life practically.
Unexpectedly, into Marjorie's life
comes a childhood friend, Lee, who
opens her eyes to a world of opportuni-
ties but turns out to be different than
she appears on the surface.
When things get out of hand,
Mohammed, the Iraqi doorman of the
Taubs' apartment building, gets sucked
into resolving the intrigue.

The cast
The humor won over the cast.

actor Zenon Award for playing Jesus in

As pampered New York housewife Marjorie Taub, veteran actress Deborah Parker
goes through a gamut of emotions in the photos series above. These are scenes from
'The Tale of the Allergist's Wife,' a new comedy by Charles Busch that opens tonight
at Highlands Little Theatre, under the direction of Pete Pollard. In this photo,
Marjorie tries to explain her mid-life crisis to husband, Ira, who provides a sympa-
thetic but distracted ear. Wayne Lambright is shifting from musicals to comedy in the
role of Dr. Ira Taub, a respected allergist who, in retirement, is happy with his life.


last season's "Jesus Christ Superstar,"
has a relatively small part, as
Mohammed. That has made it possible
for him to watch the show from the
sidelines as rehearsals have progressed.
"It's still funny after all these
weeks," Hayes said. "There are things
that throw you for a loop time and time
again."
Wayne Lambright, who plays Dr. Ira
Taub, said the humor is keeping the cast
in stitches.
"Early on there was a big concern
about whether we would be able to stay
in character and not laugh while the


audience is l.it li'ih .,"' Lambright said.
"It's a situation comedy, an adult
comedy," Pollard said, adding that if it
were a movie it would probably get at
least a PG rating due to the nature of
the humor and sojne language.
\\i .I'.s out that it's a funny show,"
said Pollard. "We think it's a funny
show. We won't know if it's a funny
show until the audience has seen it."
Challenges
Three summer hurricanes, two week-
end holidays and an abbreviated
rehearsal schedule contributed to the

challenges of staging "The Allergist's
Wife."
While Highlands Little Theatre recu-
perated from the storms, its first show
of the season, "The Music Man," was
pushed back a week. The big produc-
tion occupied the rehearsal hall and
kept Pollard from casting "The
Allergist's Wife" until late November.
Because Pollard's show was small -
with five cast members and one set,-
Highlands Little Theatre's board decid-
ed not to delay it so that it could get its
entire season back on track.
Then Christmas and New Year's cel-
ebrations cut into rehearsal times.
"The set construction usually takes
place on Saturdays," Pollard said. "We
did some on weeknights."
Cast members, on the other hand,
said they didn't feel rushed by the short
rehearsal schedule, but they did find
challenges in their characters.
Deborah Parker and Kristin Taylor
are newcomers to Highlands County
and the little theater although they
have extensive experience in theatrical
productions elsewhere. Yet both had
been away from the stage for years as
they worked in other fields.
Marjorie Taub is the first stage role
Parker has had in six years. Taylor, who
plays Frieda, has two degrees in theater
but spent her career in business. Parker
came to Sebring in September; Taylor
moved here a year ago from New
Hampshire. Both wanted to become
involved in community theater and had
been waiting for the right production.
"It's been challenging but it's been
fun," said Parker. "Emotionally,
Marjorie bounces all over the board.

Perhaps with "Meet the Fockers," Ben
Stiller can cut the apron strings with the
whole Focker enterprise.
No more Fockers in the future, please -
big, little or any kind.
The sequel to "Meet the Parents" contin-
ues the engagement saga. Now the happy
couple Gaylord "Greg" Focker (Stiller)
and Pam Byrnes (Teri Polo) are trying to
combine their respective families by taking
her stiff parents to meet his loose ones.
They're all in for a shock, but you can be
sure that everyone will endure some excru-
ciating exercises in family bonding before
they come to the inevitable resolutions.
Greg's parents his stay-at-home dad
Bernie (Dustin Hoffman) and sex therapist
mom Roz (Barbra Streisand) are like
creatures from another planet. Beneath
their touchy-feely devotion to their son
lurks an impulse to seize upon every oppor-
tunity to embarrass him.
The loosey-gooseness of the Focker fam-
ily is the joke of the movie. Naturally, that
would make it the opposite of "Meet the
Parents," when Greg tried to break into the
exclusive Byrne family's "circle of trust"
and win the approval of his finance's man-
ically controlling father Jack (Robert
DeNiro). With "Meet the Fockers," Greg
has the challenge of reigning in his parents
so that Jack won't perceive them as the
"chink in the chain" of his family legacy.
On the other hand, when Bernie and Roz
show up, one might argue that Greg has
produced the missing link. These people are
so forward they have no qualms about let-


'MEET THE FOCKERS'

Director: Jay Roach
Writers: John Hamburg, Jim Herzfeld and
Marc Hyman
Cast: Ben Stiller (Greg Focker), Teri Polo
(Pam Byrnes), Robert DeNiro (Jack Byrnes),
Dustin Hoffman (Bernie Focker), Barbra
Streisand (Roz Focker) and Blythe Danner
(Dina Byrnes)
Released by: Universal Pictures (2004)
Running time: 1 hour, 55 minutes
Rated: PG-13 for crude and sexual humor,
language and a brief drug reference
Now playing: Carmike Cinema 8 in
Lakeshore Mall, Sebring; 471-1179

ting it all hang out as they do in one
scene, when they reminisce about their
son's circumcision over dinner with their
their future in-laws. What these people real-
ly need is a high intensity counseling ses-
sion with Miss Manners.
The jokes are limited to two subjects -
sex and potty humor until it becomes a
testament to the writers' stilted imagina-
tions that nothing else in life amuses them.
I found it all increasingly tiresome and
juvenile, but if you get hysterical at watch-
ing a hairy chihuahua being flushed down
the toilet, elderly people practicing sexual
exercises, Dustin Hoffman lathering up
Barbra Streisand's chest with whipping
cream or Robert DeNiro sporting a rubber
nursing breast, this, movie is for you.
Stringing together these "funny"
moments is vast expanses of dead air where
nothing funny happens. Nothing insightful


happens either, which provides long peri-
ods to ponder why a grown-up Greg is
utterly convinced he needs Jack's approval
to marry the daughter.
Seems like Greg's reluctance to be a man
and take charge of his own life should fac-
tor into the humor at some point. The future
Mrs. Focker is not only well above the age
of consent, but she has got a surprise that
should make Jack eager to see Greg put a
wedding ring on her finger.
Most of the enormous talent is wasted.
Hoffman and Streisand have a comfortable
rapport that is pleasant to watch until
their embarrassing shenanigans take over.
The rest seem to be paddling their boats
with little effort or enthusiasm, not that the
material should inspire any great actor to do
more than phone in a performance.
But the depressing part about "Meet the
Fockers" is the fact that it's a big hit -
number one at the box office three weeks
running. That becomes even more depress-
ing when you consider that now, at this time
of year, critics' organizations are announc-
ing their best pictures of the year, and
Hollywood is gearing up for the Oscars.
Hopefully, with the arrival of the new
year and more acclaimed films going into
wide release, we can soon toss out the trash
and spend a few hours in a nicer neighbor-
hood with a better class of people.

Mohammed, the Iraqi doorman at the Taubs' apartment building,
tries to adjust the chandeliers to suit Marjorie's demands in a scene
from 'The Tale of the Allergist's Wife,' now playing at Highlands
Little Theatre. Mohammed is Zenon Award winner Chris Hayes.


Dr. Ira Taub (Wayne Lambright) struggles to open his mother-in-
law's suppositories in a scene from 'The Tale of the Allergist's Wife.'
The hit Broadway comedy by Charles Busch opens tonight for a
three-week run at Highlands Little Theatre.

exhausting. The challenge is
trying to make her a real char-
acter, not a caricature."
Seasoned actress Tammie
Pollard rounds out the trio of
actresses by playing Marjorie's
suspicious friend, Lee. She was
under the weather during last
Sunday's dress rehearsal and
unable to be interviewed.


Hayes and Lambright, both
musical performers, are taking
on their first non-musical parts.
Hayes has appeared in two pre-
vious Highlands Little Theatre
productions "Jesus Christ
Superstar" and "The Music
Man" while Lambright has
six musicals and one musical
show under his belt.
"I'm interested in expanding
my horizons," Lambright said.
"Ira has to be real. People have
to believe that who they see on
stage is this retired allergist. It's


going to be a challenge to
develop my skills and be able to
show him as a real guy instead
of a farcical character."
Hayes said speaking with an
Iraqi accent was his main chal-
lenge. He was coached by his
brother-in-law, an American
Palestinian who speaks Arabic,
and his sister, a linguist.
"I had been imitating my
brother-in-law's father along
with my brother-in-law," Hayes
said. "My accent is kind of an
homage to my brother-in-law's


father because I learned to
speak that way through him."
In the final weekend of
rehearsals, the actors said they
felt comfortable with their
parts, and Pollard said he
thought the show was ready to
go on.
"They've got the characters
down," Pollard said. "I'm
pleased with what the cast is
doing. Every rehearsal has got-
ten tighter. In my opinion, what
they need now is an audience."

Christian responsibility is to steer chil


Amber alert! It is the modern
method of informing people
that a child is missing. Within
minutes of the discovery of a
missing child the word goes out
over radio and television so that
people can be on the lookout for
the one who is missing.
Joseph and Mary did not
have the luxury of amber alert.
When they found that their 12-
year-old Jesus was missing,
their only choice was to start to
search for him themselves.
Not finding him among their
relatives and friends they head-
ed back to Jerusalem in a panic
to search. All they could do was
walk and look and ask.
After three frantic days of
searching they found Jesus. He
was in the Temple. High on
Mount Moriah the Temple
stood like a majestic moun-
tain towering over the city of
Jerusalem.- Its white marble
walls and columns glistened in
the sun, and its gold ornaments
dazzled all who beheld it. But it
was not with the beauty of the
Temple that young Jesus was
concerned. Rather, he sat "in
the midst of the doctors, both
hearing them and asking them
questions." (Luke 2:46)
During the great feasts, such
as the Passover and Pentecost,
it was customary for the Jewish
rabbis, the teachers, to hold
open discussions with anyone
who was interested. These dis-
cussions were held in the halls
or on the terraces of the Temple.


People sat cross-
legged on the ground
as they conversed. As
we see 12-year-old -
Jesus taking part in
such a discussion, it
is a beautiful picture. F
He loved the Word of
God! Jesus' first B
interest was the
Scriptures. A Ml
Our perfect
Savior's lively inter- WITH
est in God's Word is
an example for us Rev. I
and for our children. F
Parents cannot
expect that their chil-
dren, who are born in sin, are
going to have the same love for
the Word as did Jesus, who is
sinless. Therefore it is neces-
sary to expose youngsters to the
Bible. The was to do this is
through regular church atten-
dance, Sunday school, daily
devotions, and, where it is pos-
sible, a Christian grade school
and high .school education.
Only by continued exposure to
the Word of God will anyone,
young or old, grow closer to his
Savior, who himself showed a
deep love for the Bible.
Over the holidays as 1 was
shopping I saw parents and
grand-parents buying gift after
gift for their children and
grandchildren. In this act they
were expressing their love for
them. They would even sacri-
fice for themselves to see to it


U

n



I.,
lop'

iI


dren to the Word
that these children
had gifts.
What parent if
V, asked would say that
he or she did not love
their children? Most
parents will go to
extreme measures to
express this love.
They will try to see
IENT that they are educat-
o ed. They will help
uOD them to learn how to
-swim, to play a musi-
chard cal instrument, to
jfe play basketball and
baseball, to dance or
so many other things.
As good as it is for children
to learn how to swim or play a
musical instrument or any of
the other things that we teach
them none of this can begin:
to compare with the need to
learn the Scriptures. For only
the Bible is able to show us the
way to heaven through faith in
Jesus Christ.
If we truly love our children
and will do almost anything to
provide for their material needs
for a better life, how is it that so
many neglect the most impor-
tant need of all the need of a
Savior who offers eternal life?

Toyota makes Tacoma pickup bigger, bolder and more powerful


By ANN M. JOB
For The Associated Press
S mall, wimpy trucks are out. Bold, larger
trucks very nearly busting out of the
"compact pickup" category are in.
For 2005, Toyota joins the trend toward
bigger compact trucks with a larger-than-ever
2005 Tacoma that's upgraded inside and more
powerful and better handling than before.
The new Tacoma, recently named 2005 Motor
Trend Truck of the Year, also is offered in more
configurations than ever. There are 18 models
available, using 4X2 and 4X4 drivetrains, three
cabs Regular, Access and Double and two
Sbed lengths. Theres a choice of engines, too: A
new, 164-horsepower four cylinder and a 245-
horsepower V6.
Toyota still doesn't offer a V8 in the Tacoma.
Buyers must move up to the full-size Tundra
pickup for that.
But Toyota retained the base, two- to three-
passenger Regular Cab, which helps explain
why the starting manufacturers suggested retail
price, including destination charge, is just
$13,980 for a base, 2005 Tacoma. This is a
Regular Cab 4X2 model with four-cylinder
engine and manual transmission.
In comparison, the 2005 Dodge Dakota,
which no longer offers a regular cab or a four
cylinder, starts at $19,510 for a base Club Cab
4X2 with V6 and manual transmission, and
Nissans base 2005 truck is a King Cab 4X2 with
four-cylinder engine and manual transmission
and starts at $16,060.
Consumers may not be able to tick off the
fact the Tacoma is some 4 inches wider and
some 2 inches taller now and has an unheard-of
maximum length of 208.1 inches. But they can
quickly see that the Tacoma looks beefier than
its predecessor. The test Tacoma, a PreRunner
Double Cab with TRD sport package in bright
Speedway Blue paint, even sported an air intake
on the hood and rode on 17-inch tires.
There was no lag in the engine power of this
V6 truck. I moved through traffic without fuss
and passed others on the freeway without exer-
tion. I heard confident engine sounds every time
I pressed on the accelerator. Yet, the Tacoma
wasn't overtly brawny or difficult to control.


Note this 4-liter V6 is the same one used in
Toyotas 4Runner sport utility vehicle, and the
245 horsepower generated with premium gaso-
line is close to the 250 horsepower of the 4.7-
liter, high-output Magnum V8 that's the top
engine in the Dodge Dakota.
The Tacomas torque is a bit less, though -
282 foot-pounds at 3,800 rpm vs. 300 foot-
pounds at 3,600 rpm in the Dakota. Nonetheless,
the Tacomas towing capacity now is up to 6,500
pounds with the V6, compared with 5,000
pounds in the 2004 truck. The Tacomas towing
capacity is 3,500 pounds with the 2.7-liter, four-
cylinder engine that generates 183 foot-pounds
of torque at 3,800 rpm.
As youd expect, this base powerplant gives
the best gas mileage: A combined 23.5 miles a
gallon in mixed city/highway travel for a 4X2
model, according to government figures. The
best combined mileage rating for a V6 Tacoma
is 20 mpg for a 4X2 with automatic transmis-
sion.
Both the five-speed automatic, which was on
the test truck and worked well, and the six-speed
manual, .are new and are offered with the V6.
The four cylinder has a choice of five-speed
manual or four-speed automatic.
Nissans Frontier, which also is redesigned and
larger for 2005, is offered with four- and six-
cylinder engines, and the Frontiers new 4-liter
V6 ranks as the most powerful V6 in the seg-
ment with 265 horses and 282 foot-pounds of
torque at 4,000 rpm.
The Tacoma continues to ride like a truck,
with jiggles and vibrations that came through to
passengers in the PreRunner 4X2. It didn't matter
if the Tacoma was off road or on uneven pave-
ment in town.
But remember this truck had an optional sport
package that included a sport-tuned suspension
and Bilstein sport shock absorbers, so models
without this combination will ride softer. And
no matter the sport package, it was evident the
new Tacoma has less flexing and overall loose
feel in the body, thanks to the fact the Tacoma
now rides on the more modem platform of the
4Runner and Lexus GX 470.
The PreRunner comes only with rear-drive,
but it sits up off the road as high as a 4X4 truck.
So I had to climb up to get inside. Once there, I

The 2005 Toyota Tacoma


found the seats were rather low to the floor. I
didn't sit in bus-like fashion. Instead, my legs
jutted out in front of me. This provided great
headroom I estimated at least 8 inches of
clearance above my head but wasn't the most
comfortable riding position.
In fact, I preferred the back seat, which,
besides getting more shoulder room because of
the new, increased cab size, sat up a bit higher
than the front seats do. The high-riding position
gave good views out, and I noticed the separate
front seats had nice, long cushions that reached
all the way to the backs of my knees.
The dashboard has been dressed up with some
silver accents in the center. The upgraded stereo
in the test truck had strong sounds, but many of
the other amenities also were optional, including
the keyless remote entry, cruise control and
intermittent wipers. Thus, the test truck topped
more than $27,000.
In addition, the material on the ceiling of the
Tacoma is the old-style, fuzzy stuff and not real
rich-looking, and there was a good amount of
head bob over bumps and in curves.
Toyota officials retained the less-expensive,
rear drum brakes on the new Tacoma but made
,antilock brakes with electronic bake distribu-


tion and brake assist standard on all models.
Officials look to sell about 170,000 Tacomas
annually. This compares with some 150,000
sales in calendar 2004. Most buyers of pickup
trucks are men. With the broad selection of
prices and configurations for the Tacoma, buyers
can range from young singles opting for the
low-priced Regular Cabs to Baby Boomers who
use Double Cabs for both family and work
chores.
Annual household income, overall, is expect-
ed to be about $62,000.
Toyota officials said the majority of Tacomas
are likely to be sold with the V6, and the largest
segment 45 percent will be the Double
Cab. In the past, some 40 percent have been
4X4s.
There have been no safety recalls of the new
Tacoma, and the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration has no reports of govern-
ment crash tests.
But NHTSA said the 2005 Tacomas rollover
rating is four out of five stars for-rear-drive
models and three out of five stars for four-
wheel-drive trucks.
Consumer Reports said predicted reliability
for the new Tacoma is "very good."
